The republican demonstration held
in Philadelphia on the 25th, was the
largest ever witnessed in the city.
Broad street, the eenter of attraction,
was one mass of humanity from
Columbia avenue on the north, to
Ellsworth street on the south, a dis
tance of over four miles, with torch
es, banners, and transparencies,
bands of music and fireworks. The
procession was under command of
ex-Gov. Hart ran ft. Senator Blaine
addressed the assemblage. He was
followed by Thos. M. Marshall of
Pittsburg, R. S. Matthews of Balti
more; Wayne McVeagh and others.
It was the grandest repnblican
demonstration ever known in Phila
delphia. From thirty-five to forty
thousand yoters were in procession.
The Safe Way.
Men generally act more wisely in
everything else they are called upon
to iIq than in their political line of
conduct. Sometimes they perform
thqir political action from the niero
impulse of the moment, from mere
prejudice'against an Individual or a
party, oftentimes from personal
pique. When we stop a moment to
reflect, we are compelled to con
demn our own action, based on
such a line of conduct. If we were
about to employ a farm-hand to
manage work for four years we
would particularly investigate his
character and would be sure to find
out whether he had any practical
knowledge of the business, and pry
into every qualification he possessed
for the work to be done. What
work he had been accustomed to;
whether he was a good plower,
knew how to plant and sow the
seed, knew'how to .harvest, whether
he had any experience in running
the reaper and mower, whether he
could rake and bind and build a
stack, etc., etc. A knowledge on
your part of all theao things would
at once impart to you the fact
whether he would be a success in
We should at least take tho samo
precaution in selecting our public
agents, and the party which we in
tend, by our votes, to trust with the
management of our political affairs,
county, state 'and national. Our
better judgment, without question
would teach us to select the best
farm hand, the one who had the
most experience to conduct tho
business of tho farm, and the same
rule applies with equal force in the
selection of men to manage and
direct in public affairs. Select the
men who aro honest and capable;
men who have experience, and for
the higher trusts, let them be relia
ble statesmen, whose experience and
intelligence is not doubted, provided
they will operate with a party will
ing to administer the government in
tho interest of tho people
We would be loth to trust the
farm-hand who had let the land
grow up to wefads, with buildings
and fences dilapidated, with no
profits from his labors, but instead
an enormous debt accumulated. Tho
same sense of duty forbids us trust
ing a party that fired on aud pulled
down the flag, and for several years
waged war on eeerythiug sacred to
freemen and patriots.
"Tho war has been successfully
closed," and it is our duty to for
give ; we were ready to do bo, but
we are. now met by the samo party,
with the nullification of revenue
and election laws, just as destructive
to freedom and union as secession
and firing upon tho Union flag
were. Can we forgive this whole
sale nullification now in full blast,
by a strong arm of tho Democratic
party, iu oue section of the country.
Thosolid South, solid through fraud
aud intimidation, rules the Demo
cratic party, and seeks, through its
success, toule the country. Voters
should remember -the last Demo
cratic administration, which, like a
tool, was used by the Southern olig
archy, and played into the hands of
traitors. We are ndt willing to
employ that party to execute all tho
laws of the country, when at the
same time it is engaged in nullifying
those upon which the very Jifo of
the government depends.
The statement comes from. Wash
ington that Commissioner Raum
will furnish a sufficient armed force
to break up the band of Moonshin
ers in southwestern Virginia, who
recently fired upon government offi
cers. There should be a determined
purpose on the part of those who
are entrusted with the same to see
that the laws are faithfully execut
ed. One of the great evils of the
day ib the nullification of the laws,
and must in some way be stopped,
or the country will be precipitated
into a 6tate of anarchy. In a form
of government like ours, no law,
however odious to the people who
are supposed to bo the law-makers,
but what should be strictly and
faithfully executed, until amended
or repealed. When tho spirit of
nullification is cultivated or tolera
ted in any community, bad results
must follow, leading directly to
anarchy and disorder. Any law
that is unconstitutional can be
reached by a quiet and legal pro
ceeding in the courts and the wrong
corrected, and any law in its general
provisions that is obnoxious to the
will of the people can be remedied
by tho peaceful action of legislation
to amend or repeal it.'
Harper's last Weekly has some
more characteristic cuts. Oue rep
resenting the judge of an election in
the south seated near the ballot-box,
his elbow resting on one end of it,
with "a revolver in each hand. At
one side and near the top, "As for
the negroes, let them amuse them
selves, if they will, by voting the
radical ticket. We have tho count."
A little below this and to the right,
"Walk right in and witness the
freedom of the ballot." In the dis
tance are two negroes. One is old
and tho other represents a colored
politician who addresses uncle Tom.
"So, Uncle Tom, I hears you's a
goin' ter vote for Gen'l Hancock?"
Uncle Tom. "No, sah, I votes for
Massa Garfield straight, and will be
counted out. But, young man,
don't laugh, I's waited long for
Freedom, and now I'll wait till my
vote is counted, and de good Lord
knows it will be."
The Fraud 31 ill.
Plans are already being developed
by which the democrats of Indiana
expect, by fraudulent votes, to carry
tho October election. One is to
appoint a grand rally at Indianapo
lis, Oct. 5th, aud then without sus
picion to run a vast number of
illegal voters into the state and dis
tribute them among their friends to
remain until after the election.
Republicans should be vigilant and
prevent every man from casting a
ballot who is not authorized to do
so by the laws of the state. We are
pleased to learn that the republicans
of that state are watchful, and have
already possessed themselves of the
fact that a large number, say as
many as a thousaad, have entered
the state for that purpose, and it is
claimed by republicans that their
names and whereabouts are known,
and any attempt on their part to
cast illegal votes will lead to their
For tho latest evidence on this we
clip from tho Cincinnati Gazette:
"Fresh evidence that the democ
racy intend carrying the election in
October by fraud is daily multiply
ing. This afternoon as a repnblican
was coming from tho southern part
of the state he fell iu with a Shelby
ville democrat. Tho latter, taking
him for a Kentucky democrat,
opened his heart to him, 6aying that
he. had in his employ two young
men whom he should keep until
after the election. One was from
Ohio and the other from Kentucky,
aud neither, he said, were entitled
to vote, but ho should keep them
both, although the Ohio follow
wanted to go home. Then the Shol
byville democrat became more con
fidential, and asked his fellow
traveler if ho couldn't send him
three or four other men from Ken
tucky. He could take care of four
more, he said, and would pay them
sixty cents per day, including board,
until after the election.
The republican replied that he
would, and took the man's address,
business and other particulars,
promising to forward the men at
once. A few quiet questions'devel
oped tho confession that democrats
who were able to do so had been
urged to employ all tho meu they
could until after election, the mana
gers promisingthat they should not

But the democracy are engaged in
exportation as- well as trans
portation. For several days colored men in
this city have been solicited to go
into Ohio and Kentucky, work being
promised them at $2.25 per day. A
largo number are reported to have
left tho city already aud six were
found to-day on the eve of taking
their leave. Tho men solicited are
unmarried and without homes.
They are approached quietly and the
most flattering promises poured into
their ears. It Is believed that the
plan is to get them out of the state
and then, in case they return to vote,
to challenge them as non-residents.
Tho fellows aro cautioned to say
nothing about their engagements,
but tho matter has become public,
and measures are being taken to
expose the trick.

The Nominee for Senator.
Of course the Journal's editor is
now catching it all around, and the
Journal, being a newspaper, simply
quotes without comment, what in
said concerning the nominee. Col
fax county being joined with Platte,'
has an interest in the result. The
Schuyler Sun has this to say of the
action of the convention :
"Ab will be observed from pro
ceedings published elsewhere the
convention held at Columbus Satur
day nominated Mr. M. K. Turner as
a candidate for Senator from the
lth District. Mr. Turner is editor
of the Columbus Journal he is a
far better man 'than tho nature of
his business would indicate. He is
a man of intelligence, honor and
business ability. He has built up in
the little city of Columbus not only
a very enviable reputation, but one
of the best and most valuable weekly
papers in the West. Mr. Turner is
a man in whom every farmer will
discover a mutual friend. Iu addi
tion to his newspaper work ho is
engaged in agricultural pursuits and
stock-raising. He owns a-nice farm
home about three miles north of
Columbus, where, from now until
the polls close in November, It will
be perfectly proper to drop in on
him any time of tho day or night.
In the event of Mr. Turner's election
the people of the 14th District may
well feel proud of their represen
Democratic criticism upon Sen
ator Conkling's speech makes the
point that if, ho says, no one, not a
democrat, has the liberty to speak
or print his sentiments or to vote as
he pleases at the south, then the war
with all its costly expenditure of
blood and treasure, was a failure,
and therefore if the Union has still
tji be restored, it would be better to
hand the task over to some other
party than the one which has made
such a failure of it. This may seem
to be curiouB democratic criticism ;
but the words are almost exactly
those of a distinguished democratic
senator. The democratic senator is
no doubt anxious that bis party
soould get hold of the government
and restoro the Union to its con
dition before the war. Omaha Rep.
The national debt, caused by the
slaveholders' rebellion, which was
greatly prolonged by the ready, ac
tive Bympathy of the Democratic
party in the north, this national debt
has been and is rapidly decreasing

reason under the canopy of heaven
why we should return to the posi
tion of 1861, when the Democratic
party and James Buchanan suc
cumbed to treason, and whined that
there was no power in the govern

Trenton, Sept. 10th, '80.
Eu. Journal : It has been some
time since my hist communication
to the Journal and I will again
endeavor to give you a few items of
interest in regard to our section of
country' The weather is, at pres
ent, quite cool, but from July 5th
until Aug. 20th, we had very warm
and dry weather. Havo had rains
of late, but they came too late to
make good corn, aud tho crop will
be a very light one. It is now worth
40 cts. in our home market. The
fruit crop is one of the largest I ever
saw, anil there are thousands of
bushels of apples going to waste,
not being worth enough to pay for
marketing. Peaches are also plen
tiful, but command fair prices.
Grapes are very abundant, and one
nf our citizens 1b now engaged in
making a large amount of wine, the
pure article being worth but 25 cts.
per bottle. Threshing is all over
with here, and machines are laid
by for the next crop. Although
there was a large crop, there are so
many steamers, and they thresh so
fast, it is soon over with, 1200 bush
els per day by one machine in some
iuslauces. A large crop of wheat
will bo sown this fall, and drilling
will commence about the 10th or
In regard to politics this county
has always been democratic, but we
have a good Garfield club here, and
some claim the republicans aro in
the majority this time. Some of the
democrats pay they are not going to
enthuse much over Haucock, as ho
was not their choice. There is also
a greenback club here, composed
mostly of coal-miners. Torch-light
processions, and speeches by prom
inent candidates on both sides is the
order of the day at present. I sup
pose Nebraska will, as usual, roll up
a good republican majority.
I see by St. Lonis papers that the
parties overhauled at Richland by
(Jan. Condon proved not to be the
real Benders of Kansas fame, and no
doubt Dan. was disappointed in not
netting the reward.
Thero is little of interest to write
bout, aud you will have to excuse
ne with a short letter this time. The
Journals you sent came to hand
ill rtaht, aud proved interesting, as
uaual. Yours &c,

The democratic platform adopted
at Cincinnati declares that
The right to a free ballot is a right
preservative of all rights, and must
and shall be mautaiued in every part
of the United States.
The Inter-Ocean publishes a letter
from Mr. Alex. II. Byrd, of Ala
bama. In the one precinct from
which he writes, Mr. Byrd states
that thero were 718 votes cast. Ac
cording to the count by democratic
judges, the democratic ticket had a
majority ; but now come forward
G21 men who make affidavit that
they voted the republican ticket,
which would give an absolute re
publican majority in the precinct of
over 500 a majority shamefully
ignored and destroyed by the Han
cock democracy. The statement of
Mr. Byrd (this is only one among
Uhe statements of a native south
erner, whose family lost 200 slaves
by the war; of one who never voted

trom the greed and disloyalty of the
southern democracy. Omaha Rep
publican. Hay for Fuel.
In many partB of Nebraska hay is
used for fuel. In Kearney a flour
ing mill has been running with this
kind of fuel for the past year and it
is found to be economical. The
best grades of hay are not used,
only such asjnay havo been par
tially spoiled by rain or is filled
with weeds. -By a very simple con
trivance an engine can bo fixed so as
to be fed with hay as easily as with
wood. In Fremont and in several
other towns of the state large steam
engines are being fixed to burn hay
or straw. We see no reason why
the tall weeds and sunflowers as
well as the rank slough grass along
onr creek bottoms cannot be utilized
in this way, and in a country like
this where wood and coal are scarce
this subject is deserving of consid
erable attention. Lincoln Globe.
Gen. Weaver does not appear to
respond very well to the friendly
enthusiasm which the Democrats
exhibit over the Greenback victory
in Maine. Speaking in New York
city the other evening, while the
Maine returns were coming in, he
exclaimed, "Why, when a man votes
down South the judges of election,
who sit behind a screen so no one
can see them, look at his ballot, and
if it suits them they put it in the box,
but if it doesn't suit they tear it up
Hitd put another that doos suit them
iu the box. Such is the condition
of affairs in the South to-day." To
the Democratic branches in Maine
mid elsewhere this comment from
the great leader of Greenbackism
can not be very consoling. Central
