HH | Arapahoe Pioneer , "is one of the

Bfi I I Much is being said and written
B I 1 about the recanvass of the ballots
Hj I I cast for judges of the supreme
fl I I court , attempted by a commission ,
Bj 1 1 ( which was enjoined , ) and now
Bff [ progressing before a legislative
Bg I committee. The Tribune cares
BI little or nothing about all the legal
Bff ffl technicalities raised and takes neB
B I part in the partisan political side-
BB | plays attempted. We question the
B | advisability of either urging these
B jg technicalities or exhibiting any
fll 9 special partisan spirit in the mat-
BI 1 ter. They cut no figure with the
HI I people. We fail to see any justi-
Hi fication for interfering in the re-
Bi 1 count. If the original canvass was
Hi 1 honest and accurate , the amend-
Bl ; | ] ments were lost. If on the hand ,
enough votes were cast to elect the
Pop judges , they should be seated ,
and no respecter of the sanctity of
I the ballot or lover of honesty can
. afford to lay a straw in the way.
The Eepublican party cannot af-
j ford to indulge in any monkey bus-
IIIi : ' e8s aljout so grave a matter. If
18 ! fraud CaD e Proven iu tne recount ,
II' let tlie resPonsibil % rest with the
III Populists. The Republican party
| B j invites the widest , fullest publicity
B . in all such cases , and cannot afford
H under any circumstances to appear
B ' as obstructionists.

The investigation of the sugai
and other trusts by the Lexow
committee has developed some o !
the remarkable schemes by which
millions are wruug from the masses
and added to the unearned incre
ment of the classes. In the case
of the sugar trust , three companieE
with a nominal capital of § 800,000
were reorganized by the trust with
trust certificates to the amount of
$17,000,000. When the trust was
first organized all the companies in
the combine did not have more
than $7,000,000 of capital , but
trust certificates were issued them
nevertheless to the total amount of
$50,000,000. This immense cap
italization has but recently been
increased to $75,000,000 , which it
will be observed about 90 per
cent is water. However , this stock
is selling at a considerble premium ,
aud is paying handsome dividends.
In the case of one member of the
coffee roasting trust it was admit
ted that dividends had been paid
last year amounting to fifty per
cent of their entire paid-up capital.
And there-are others. Still there
are those who rail at the discontent
and distress so manifest over the
laud. Such infamous combina
tions should be throttled by the
strong arm of the law.
The recount matter has culmi
nated in charges and counter
charges of dishonesty and inac
curacy , and Governor Holcomb
and the legislature should take ,
fair means to lift the clouds of
gross frauds charged. It is the
plain duty of the legislature to as
certain the express will of the people
ple on the Bnpreme judges amend
ment question , and the Rupubli-
3ans of the legislature should be
satisfactorily represented in the
• ecount. The people of Nebraska
vill have no political buncombe or
ihicanory , but a fair , open and
above board deal. They will be
satisfied with nothing short of
what is right in this matter , inde
pendent of politics. The Populist
party is on trial. The party will
be held responsible for everything
short of an honest , open recount.

Thummel of Grand Island to be

The supreme court has decided
the case of the United States
against the Transmissouri Freight
association against the railroads.
The opinion was read by Justice
Peckham , and reverses the deci
sion of the oourt below and holds
the anti-trust law of 1890 to be
applicable to railroad transporta
tion , and the traffic agreement of
the pool illegal.
RHEUMATISM QUICKLY CURED.
After having been confined to the house for
eleven days and paying out § 25 in doctor bills
without benefit , Mr. Irank Dolson of Sault
Ste. Marie , Mich. , was cured by one bottle of
Chamberlain's Pain Balm costing 25 cents and
has not since been troubled with that com
plaint. For sale by L.V. . McConnell & Co. ,
Persons who are subject to attacks of bilious
colic will be pleased to know that prompt relief -
lief may behad by taking Chamberlain's Colic ,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy , and if taken
as soon as the first indication of the disease
appears , it will prevent the attack. For sale by
L. W. McConnell & Co. , Druggists.
Many cases of "Grippe" have lately been
cured by One Minute Cough Cure. This prep
aration seems especially adapted to the cure
of this disease. . It acts quickly thus prevent
ing serious complications and bad erfects in
which this disease often leaves the patient.
It is surprising what a "wee bit of a thing"
can accomplish. Sick headache , constipation ,
dyspepsia , sour stomach , dizziness , are quick
er banished by DeWitt's Little Early Risers.
