cause we think he is of all the can

Wc have never heard a breatli
uttered to impugn his honesty, up
rightness and honor. But honor
and honesty arc not Colonel Chase's
sole qualifications; he is a gentle
man of great ability and talents,
exhatistlcss energy, and an indefa
tigable worker. These arc just the
qualifications required for the man
who is to control the administration
of Ihc State during the rext two
years; and they arc rarely found all
united in the same person. "Wc
want in our governor a man of en
ergy and 'activity, who will bestir
himself to attract population to this
state by making its great advantages
and resources known to the outside
world; but wc want him at Ihc
same time to be honest and upright ;
we want him to be a man of honor,
who will check dishonesty and
fraud. Colonel Chaso's precedents
offer us a guarantee that he will till
the position with advantage to the

made an excellent mayor, and will

NAMED FOR OFFICE "WHO DOES NOT
COMniXE IX HIS CHARACTER, HOXESTY
Honesty in politics is scoffed nt
by numerous politicians, but the
time is not far distant when the
scollers will be left in tho rear. Pol
itics is a "trade" with the lew un
scrupulous men who niako it so.
There is a large class of voters who
take no ppecial interest in either of
the great political parties, and this
class usually is swayed by questions
of economy and honesty lu the ad
ministration of public affairs. Tlioy
hold the balance of powcriuid throw
their votes to the party which seems
to conduct nflnirs on the best busi
ness principles. Hence, the Repub
lican party cannot afford to trifle
with the dissatisfied factions, as
they arc termed. We need every
vote in order to insure the success
of the party, and to secure equal
and full representation in county,
state and national conventions. We
don't believe in any compromise
with wrong, but we believe it pos
sible ior the party to nominate men
who have the full conlidencc of the
people and who would poll the full
party vole and more too. Let no
man be named for office who docs
not combine in his character, hon
esty and ability, so as to be always
able and willing to present the
cause of the people whenever called

The Brownville Granger is not
"guessing" about the state for this
campaign, at least its assertion of
actual knowledge is strong indeed.
The Granger stated that TJ. S.
Marsha! J);iily lmd been announced
as a candidate for the ollice of gov
ernor of Nebraska and also stated
that Mr. Daily would make an "av
erage Nebraska governor." This
simple statement has been construed
into an endorsement by us of Mr.
Daily as a candidate for governor.
We have no interest in that fight,
and concluding that the joke had
been carried far cnomrli. wc now
ask our brethren of the press to
listen while wc tell them what wc
have all along well known to be the
facts in the case.
Mr. Daily has no idea of being
nominated for governor by the Itc
publican convention. He does not
want that office just now, but he
does desire to retain his present
lucrative position, which pays him
$0,000 a year, more or less. Wc
have been informed from Washing
ton that the attorney general of the
United States has seriously contem
plated the removal of Mr. Daily
several times during the past vcar,
but 5enator Paddock, who pledged
his word to Dundy when he with
drew in Paddock's favor for U. S.
senator that Daily should be retain
ed, has pleaded earnestly and saved
Daily. Now it is Mr. Daily's turn
to do some work for the Paddock
Welch combination, which purposes
to control the next state convention.
That combination means Nance for
.. ITT II
guvurnor, eicn lor congress,
Slaughter for secretary of state.
Loran Clark for treasurer, Major
for contingent congressman, with
the supreme judge and auditor the
result of the best trade that can bo
made at the convention. Mr. Daily
and his army of deputies arc to
work up delegations throughout tho
state, ostensibly for Daily, but really
to be turned over to the Paddock-Wclch-Nance
combination on the
day of battle. Mr. Daily takes this
method to pay Senator Paddock for
past services, nnd to secure a con
tinuance in office
Doctor Miller, of the Omaha Her
ald, must needs interest himself in
the Republican candidates, because
none other have, so far, seemed to
be successful in reaching the goal.
But listen :
. "Hon. Lorenzo Crounse was in the
city yesterday, looking up his case
for congress and talking about those
blooded bulls. Lorenzo smiles and
sighs for that cushioned seat in the
House of Representatives with the
energy of something in the nature
of despair. He rebounds from mo
ments of depression upon the clastic
springs of a hopeful nature, and
manages to maintain a cheerful
aspect and disposition. The Hou.
Lorenzo Crounse, however, will not
go to Congress this year if Hon.
Frank Welch knows himself, and
ho swears he does."
To which the Blair Pilot refers,
by historical reference to a former
campaign, saying: i
Hitchcock, whom the Herald ed
itor delights to rcler to, now-a-days,
in terms of "highest praise," em
bodied the same meaning in fewer
words than the Herald employs. It
was at the tabic, in the dining room
of the Commercial hotel nt Lincoln,
while the room was filled with
guests, manv of those present being
members of one branch or the other
of tho legislature, that "Hitch." said
to Gov. Saunders and Judge Briggs :
"If I can't be Senator I'll be if
cither of you shall." Tho Herald
endorsed "Hitch's" statement then
as it does Frank Welch's now.
To which also, the Bee, the busy,
buzzing, stinging Jiec, referring to a
living man us a dead politician,
Mr. Crounse is not and never has
been a revolutionist. He knows
that Frank Welch holds a legal pre
emption under the Pacific railroad
grant for a scat in Congress, fortius
year ami up to tho-llhduy of March
of the next year. After that date
Mr. Welch, who knows himself
about a.s well as any moribund pol
itician knows his approaching po
litical demise, will know enough to
"step down and out."
Judge Taylor, of the Pen and
Plotv, touches upon a subject in a
way that is commendable, when he
The Omaha Jiepublican ia now
under'aking the rather questionable
expedicut of setting up Itosewater
in the Cougrcsnioiinl field as a scare
crow to frighten Crounse and oth
ers out, so that Welch can "hog" it
down alone. Itosewater is a big
enough little man to be sure, but it
is putting too much on him to make
him Godfather to the multitude who
happen to advocate tho same meas
ures that he does. For Mr. Crounse
or any other man to enter the field
in opposition to Mr. Welch need
not make him a protege of IJose
watcr's ; neither is it proper to insist
that opposing candidates must wear
fioscwatcrs shoes or go bare-foot.
This is a free country, a land of free
iiuhts, and that scarecrow ought to
he taken down.
But Gere of the Lincoln Journal,
the best partizan editor in the State,
who points his sharpened Faber in
thedircction of the enemy wherever
he finds him, and always lias the
best word for his political friends,
changes the subject as follows:
Mr. L. G. Todd, of Cass, the
Grcenbackers' choice for Governor,
is the erratic genius who was ap
pointed a committee of one by the
Territorial House, in lSfKJ, to revise
the Lord's prayer and amend the
ten commandments, on motion of
Doctor F. Rentier. If elected he
will fix things so that money will
be plenty, if he has to revise the
Constitution of the United Stales to
do it, and amend the rules of arith
metic and the multiplication table.
"Maj." J. AV. Davis, who is to go
to Congress as the advocate of the
poor and laboring, according to the
"fiat" of the Greenback Convention,
is the gentleman who was sent out
by the Credit Mobilier to help build
the Union Pacific Railroad in 1SGS.
He was "awarded" a two-miilion
contract, which was duly filled by
the honest corporation that hired
him. Ho is a brother-in-law of
George Francis Train, and ha3 train
ed with all the known parties. He
was a Republican till 1872, when he
offered his services to the Republi
can central committee to stump the
State for $500. This offer having
ucen ucciineii, ne maue a dicker with
the Democrats, and stumped for the
Democratic ticket. He has since
been a candidate for Congress on
the "Independent" ticket, and now
completes the grand rounds by tak
ing a similar post at the hands of
our Greenback friends. He is an
orator of some sound and fury, but
his speeches arc devoid of argu
ment, statistics and facts. Probably
no man could have been selected by
the convention who can talk louder
about finance and knows less about
it, and wc make this assertion with
a full knowledge of its sweeping
character. The Major, however, is
not one of these candidates who
will submit to any phlebotomy for
the good of the cause. He will not
contribute to the funds of the com
mittee men or the Greenback press.
His politics is a matter of business,
and not amusement.
nest and living conviction, that for
mankind to gain possession of those
truths which in themselves arc
simplest, is a long and infinitely
wearisome ami complicated work
Without speculation the sciences
The doctrine of the unknowable-
ness of everything which cannot be
empirically known, naturally exer
cises a seductive fascination upon all
ordinary heads, and upon all unpro
ductive heads in general.
The more visible, palpable a thing
is, the more unreal it is co ipso.
Half truth finds far more buyers
than wholcand purelruth this costs;
too much exertion of tho head and
of the heart.
It appears incredible, how long a
time is needed, before the inevitable
consequences of a new position,
however evident they may be, arc
deduced from it with anything like
In the nature of the case the cor
rect knowledge of God, n fruitful
speculation respecting God, and all
fruitful speculation can only start
from the religious point of view.
Wc ought sincerely to thank the
modern atheistic philosophy, that it
has at least given us a genuine and
living consciousness of what an
incomparably great deed it is, to
uflirm the existence of God.
"God" is a great word. Whoever
feels and acknowledges that, will
judge those more mildly and equit
ably, who confess concerning them
selves, that I hey have not tho cour
age to say, they believe in God.
When so manv, and that with
good faith, regard human existence
without the certainty of God as
endurable: this proceeds from want

At the junction of the Ohio nnd

Chivalry, of honor and nobility, is
situated the beautiful city of Pa
ducah, so named after a famous In
dian chief by the name of Padukh,
whose wigwam and those of his
people once stood upon the beauti
ful site now covered by the grand,
niaive, business blocks and elegant
residences of a more powerful, aye
and craftier race than the dusk'y
huod aborigines. "The dark and
bloody ground" is now one vast
garden, and our can scarcely believe
that once this fair land was a "howl
ing wilderness" inhabited only by
the wild beasts and wilder men.
But the world is continually pro
gressing, and I boldly affirm that a
prettier city than this cannot be
found in America. The principal

theism all is God.
The medimval Pantheism is a stir

in antithesis to the purely religious. I
in it there glimmers the conscious

We have Sunday School every

Slaughter, followed with a few ap
propriate remarks from the Rev.
Mr. Scott, said gentlemen both being
present, as we understood by ex
press invitation, nnd for which
kindness iu responding, our church
going people certainly tender them
their thanks. By the way, Mr. Ed
itor, I think you referred to that
same meeting iu a paragraph of the
21st, in which you stated a friend
had given you a graphic description
of a fight that took place after church
together with rather a sneering re
mtirk about the two preachers being
perched on a pair of hay ladders and
something about supposing the con
gregation to have been dismissed
with a malediction, &c. Now, there
certainly was a very disgraceful
little episode enacted after church,
but although your friend's account
might have been graphic, it certain
ly was verv incorrect, to say the
least, inasmuch as he seemed to be
trying to throw some blame on the
two ministers, and again the word
fight is out of place, if my diction
ary is correct the word assault
being much more appropriate, as the
fighting was all done on one side,
and by one who, we arc happy to
say, is not of our neighborhood but
simply a fellow who has been stay

place and another, and probably
spoiling to do something smart be

There is a large class of people in

who, not feeling able to attend our
State Fair at Lincoln, have long felt
the need of a District Fair nDrth of

plied this year by the District Fair,
to be held at Fremont, Sept. 1G, 17,
18, and 19. Every effort is being
made by the directors of tho union
Fair Ground Association to make
the fair one of the best ever held in
the State, and, according to present
indications, their efforts will be
crowned with success, especially in
the exhibition of stock. It is now
a fixed fact that the finet strains of
horses, cattle, sheep and swine in
the State will be largely represented
at this fair. Several celebrated
