Jiesolved,Th&t the question of trans
portation is one of the most import
ant problems now before the people
for solution, and that the republican
party of Nebraska should voice the
sentiments of the people thereon in
no uncertain sound; that all trans
portation routes should be so con
trolled by the state and general gov
ernments as to prevent extortion,
nnjuet charges and discrimination in
any form or manner; that the action
of the different railroad companies
throughout the United States in con
solidating and pooling otherwise
competing lines and issuing free pass

sound public policy, and should be
prevented by proper legislation.
Besolved, That we are in favor of

HOW IT HAPPEE1.
The friends of Mr. Valentine know
full well all the facts connected with
the action taken at the congressional
conventien which resulted in the nom
ination of two candidates and still
insist that Mr. Tnrner was nominated
by the bolters. Look to the facts and
are who the bolters are. Judge
Crounse was chairman, and Col. Whit
moyer secretary of the congressional
committee for the Third district and
had the right according to all the ac
knowledged roles and usage in such
cases to call the convention to order
for temporary organization. When
this duty was performed the conven
tion had the right to displace them
and elect permanent officers. Mr.
Valentine in person did not submit to
this call, but influenced bis friends' to
go to another place, hold a self-constituted
convention contrary to all
usage and precedence in such cases,
and from this bolting and self-constituted
convention received his nomi
nation. Mr. Turner received his nom
ination from the regularly organized
convention. Mr. Valentine and his
friends have had the cheek from the
start to claim that he is the regular
nominee of the republican convention
and party in the Third congressional
district. Knowing this claim to be
false the cry of bolters has been rung
on all the changes in the district to
mislead and divert the attention of
voters from the real facts in the case
and cover up the fact that Valentine
and his friends were the only bolters
on the record.
With Mr. Valentine's boasted ma
jority of the delegates, backed by the
farmers and laboring men of the dis
trict at the Fremont convention, he
could have went into the regular con
vention and controlled its every act.
The important question is, what mo
tives prompted Mr. Valentine and bis
friends to bolt the regular called and
organized convention? It still re
We believe we are not mistaken in
the opinion that the republican party
will hold Mr. Valentine and biB
friends responsible for every result
that may legitimately come to the
party from the hasty and unwise
action of himself and friends in bolt
ing the regularly called and organ
The anti-monopolists of the Third
district have a splendid opportunity
of expressing their sentiments on the
7th day of November at the polls.
The issues are squarely made in the
two platforms. The friends of the
anti-mouopoliet platform cling to it,
and discuss the principles involved in
it, but the opposition avoid debate on
the issues and ramble over the almost
every other subject indulging in littte
low slanders and lies against their
opponents, all of which is intended
to draw away the voter's attention
from the true issues involved in the
campaign. Just make it a point to
hold the Val. men to a discussion of
the issues and see how soon debate
will close. Don't waste time in re
ferring to his record, that is only too
well known to the farmers, home
steaders, laboring and business men
of tne Third district, including bis
sweet scented military record; but
bold his friends to a simple discus
sion of the issues embraced in the
anti-monopoly platform, and you will
soon discover an extra effort on their
part to divert your attention to the
consideration of other subjects.
From what we can learn true repub
licans who labor for the interest of
the people, and in the anti-monopoly
cause in the Third district, intend to
take advantage of this opportunity
on the 7th day of November and cast
the largest vote ever polled in the
The Schuyler Sun speaks in the
highest terms of praise of Mr. M. L.
Weaver, the Republican nominee for
senator in the 13th district, composed
of Colfax and Platte counties. The
Sun says "he is one of the early set
tlers in this county. He came here a
poor man and through his energy and
industry has bnilt op a pleasant, com
fortable home. He has the respect
and confidence of all who know him,
and the people of the 13th district
wonld honor themselves in sending
him to the Senate. Mr. Weaver is a
farmer, member of the Colfax County
Alliance and a gentleman of good
business qualifications." A man with
so good a character and business
qualifications cannot fail to receive a
warm and liberal support from the
voters of Platte county. This is the
kind of men that the people of Platte
desire to see promoted to public trust.
Henry Ward Beecher at the au
tumn meeting the other day of the
New York and Brooklyn Congrega
tional Churches, took occasion to with
draw from membership in the associ
ation. His pulpit teachings, he
thought, took a range unauthorized
by the denomination, and he did not
propose that the association should be
placed in a position where it would
be compelled to defend him. Future
punishment, be claimed, would be
mental, not physical ; and the fire and
brimstone hades he denonnced as a
barbaric slaughter-house notion. The
doctrine of original sin, also came
nnder his displeasure, but in trinity
and divinity of Christ ho was a firm
It seems to be impossible for the
Omaha Jiepublican to be anything
like fair in the present political cam
paign, especially with reference to
the congressional part of it. The
load that is expected of it is entirely
too heavy for it to bear. Of course,
it is to be expected that it will put
the best phase on the matter that is
possible, but there ought to be a sem
blance of fairness to say the least
We most say to our readers that the
Jiepublican is not to be relied upon
when discoursing upon the men who
are opposing Valtntlae for congreM.

Clyde" Explalas the Situation.
Ed. Journal : The Genoa Leader
of the 12th calls the attention of its
readers to a letter copied from the
Omaha Bee in the Columbus Jour
nal, signed "Clyde." The editor says :
"We venture the statement, and don'i
believe it can be successfully contra
dicted, that the letter to the Omaha
Bee and copied iu the Columbus.
Journal in its issue of Sept. 27, sign
ed "Clyde," never was in Genoa, vra
not written by a citizen of Genoa, but
On the contrary was the prodnct of a
brain crazed by political ambition and
desire for office." For the enlighten
ment of the Leader and its readers 1
wish to say through the Journal thai,
although I do not reside immediate!
in the town of Genoa, I am a citizen
of Genoa precinct, and forward all
my letters and mail matter through
the Genoa post office, and almost in
variably head and date my letters
Genoa, Neb., and that the letter Iu
question was delivered into the Genoa
post office. And as it was directed to
the Omaha Bee it was, no doubt, care
The editor was careful not to print
the letter nor quote a sentence from
it although criticising it so that the
readers of the Leader could consider
its contents and judge for themselves.
As to the letter being a product of a
brain crazed by political ambition and
a desire for office, that charge would
apply with much more propriety to
the editor, aud a hundred fold more to
his patron whom be so highly extols.
I am a plain farmer, seeking no office.
I have not been a candidate for office,
am not now, nor never expect to be ;
but that does not relieve me from the
duties of a good citizen, nor from
feeling a deep interest in 6ound and
pure government, aud the peace, pros
perity and general wellfaro of our
country. And I know that these
essential elements of a nation's true
greatness do not consist in political
intrigue, fraud and corrupt practices.
The editor says "mark well the pre
diction, that Mr. Valentine has not an
enemy in Genoa precinct." I am not
his enemy. I would rejoice that he
should repent and be converted to
sound moral and political principles.
It is said that a man's best friend is
one that will tell him of his faults,
and I have taken the liberty in one
instance to tell Valentine and bis fol
lowers of a few of their faults, and to
offer some reasons for not supporting
him for congress, aud amoug many
other reasons I may say that he has
been extravagantly liberal in voting
away the public money on river and
harbor frauds, and in voting an ex
cessive increase to be squandered by
the Agricultural Bureau, an office that
is entirely useless so far as the farm
ing interest is concerned, I speak
from some experience. It is a mere
sinecure and a rendezvous for office
I claim it as my privilege as an in
dependent and untrarameled citizen to
exercise my own judgment, and to be
guided by my own convictions as to
whom I will support for office, and
whom I will not. And I will not
knowingly support any candidate of
bad record or very doubtful princi
ples for office, and I believe that sound
morality and true patriotism will
fully sustain my position.
I believe it is the duty of every
citizen, who feels more interest for the
general wellfare of the people and the
good government of the country than
for the success of scheming politicians
or party leaders, to exercise his fran
chise so as to Becure the election of
men of fair ability, good character
and honest principles to fill all offices,
ponnty, state and national. And 1
presume that but a small portion of
the voters of this district really be
lieve that Valentine belongs to that
class. And if he does not, it is the
fault of himself and his designing and
intriguing associates, and it is right
that they should be defeated for their
own and the country's good, and for
the character of the State.
I know that it is claimed by some
of the Valentine papers that this dis
trict belongs to bim, and that those
who dispute his title are knaves, trai
tors and soreheads. But it would be
paying a low tribute to the intel
ligence and independence of the
voters to suppose a majority will en
dorse that assumption.
Last week at Plattsmoutb, Neb., F.
J. Metteer was shot and killed by J.
R. Polin, formerly depnty sheriff and
jailor at Plattsmonth. The difficulty
aroBe in the first place about a claim
which Polin held against Metteer, but
the real and moving cause to the com
mission of the murder was the jeal
ousy of Polin who imagined that top

Schuyler, Oct. I). A trip through
Washington aud Burt discloses the
given fact that Valeutine is a goner;
that Turner has the hearts of the peo
ple, and no amount ot slime and filth
such as is daily run through the
Omaha Republican can rub it out.
In Washington county the hosts are
led by Henry Sprick aud a host ol
good solid fellows they are too.
The peilidy of Valentine and his
truncheon flourishes at the stale con
vention has tilled Burt and Washing
ton with gall aud bitterness. I refer
to the fight between Clark and White
for state treasurer. Valentine at the
Fremont convention pledged the
Burt and Washington delegates his
support for White, if the friends ol
the latter led at Fremont by Hope
well aud Hilton, would leave the Tur
ner convention, whero they had al
ready filed their credentials, and go
into his camp. This they did and the
manner in which Valentine carried
out bis pledge when he reached
Omaha is too well known to White's
friends to need reporting. He sold
them out in the interests of the rail
roads aud stood up for Loran Clark,
uot only by voting for him but by
yelling tor the fraud Unit was perpe
trated by Gad Siuughtcr. in vain
did Frank Hilton expostulate and
plead for a new vote. You will hear
from Burt and Washington in No
vember. In Colfax I find a very sim
ilar state of affairs. Valentine vis
ited Colfax county the week of the
primaries, and persuaded of Mr.
Clarkson that he (Valentine) had no
caudidate for secretary of state; that
if Colfax would wheel into line for
Valentine at Fremont, the Valentine
strength would go for Clarkson at
Omaha for secretary of state, and
that Butler, of Stanton, should bo
withdrawn. The friends of Mr.
Clarkson full into the trap, they made
a heroic struggle and carried Colfax
county by oue-fourth of one vote.
They were enthusiastic for Valentine
at Fremont ; at Omaha he met them
with smiles. Capt. Butler was still
on the track but it was "only for a
complimentary vote;" the "captain
only had five votes," so the saintly
Val informed the Colfax folks, and
then they would vote for Clarkson,
all of them. The result you know
the Valentine strikers vote! for But

don't believe there is gnashing of
teeth up hero drop in aud listen to
the music a few hours. 'The fellows
who were going to sell their shirts
and go iu for Valentine have conclu
ded to keep all the underwear they
have and tear none of it by desperate
struggles. Turner voters are thicker
than bees and Valentino followers are
You may expect greater changes
from now on, aud that Valentine is
already out of the race becomes more
apparent every hour.
All committees this year who have
in charge the guarding of the ballot
box from fraudulent votes in the
Third congressional district will have
a fearful responsibility. Every pos
sible effort will be made by the pow
ers that run corporations to defeat
the chosen candidates of the farmers
and laboring men in the district.
They possess great facilities to run in
hundreds of voters into the district
at numerous places, swear in their
votes and the next day they are off
and can't be found to be prosecuted
for illegal voting, which is a fine not
exceeding three hundred dollars, and
a lailure to pay, imprisonment at the
rate of $3 per day until paid. This
class of voters must be looked after
at each voting precinct in the district
by the local committee, and by chal
lenging evfjry illegal voter, and if
this method fails, then the next step
to be taken will be to promptly pros
ecute them. Suggestions from cer
tain quarters cause us thus early to
call the attention of honest voters to
the fact and have them adopt meas
ures to guard against the fraud and to
prevent the colonization of voters in
the Third district. Such a commit
tee should be appointed early in every
precinct in the district, not only to
guard the ballot box from fraudulent
votes, but to watch the movements of
those intending to commit the fraud.
