tinc'H nomination and the platform on
which he is standing.
The disaffected Valentino-republican
meeting in this city Tuesday
evening, the 17th inst., was not a suc
cess in point of numbers in attend
ance at least. The crowd was small
and not much enthusiasm displayed.
As far as Vaudervoorts speech went
to aid the cause, it might be termed a
flash in the pan. W. H. Michael, ev
idently on the wrong side his heart
isn't in the work he is trying to do.
He made an interesting, fair speech,
with no attempt to prove that Valen
tino was not responsible for the rupt
ure in the Third district.
Hon. J. W. Dawes, republican
candidate for governor, and Hon. E.
K. Valentine chauged cars at this
place Friday eveuiug for Albion, at
which place they were announced to
speak. Valentine's glee club was
along and indulged in a couple of
songs on the platform while waiting
for the Albion train to pull up. The
burden of tho songs were that Tur
ner's head was bald, that "the Valen
tine boys are the boys that stick," (for
money of course),and "Hunger's train
was stuck on the hill," all of which
was very edifying not to say convin
cing argument that Mr. Valentine is
no bolter, is a gentleman above re
proach in public life aud entitled to
the votes of thinking, honest men.
The bolting Valentine faction of
the county were represented at Grand
Prairie precinct at the Spoerry school
house last Thursday evening in
speeches by Messrs. Byron Millett aud
J. M. Macfarland of this city. A ver
bal report by a listener is that both
gentlemen did the best that could be
expected of them in the forlorn hope
they repieseut. Mr. Millett's speech
is said to have been conspicuous for
nothing in particular but the length of
timo occupied in its delivery one
hour and a half. Mr. D. L. Bruen, a
farmer of Platte county, on the part of
Turner's adherents was permitted to
offer what ho thought necessary in
rebuttal of the argument advanced,
which he did in a ringing speech of
A bold but unsuccessful attempt
was made Thursday night last to
burglarize the safe of Wm. Schroeder
at his saloou on Olive street. The
buildiug was entered by way of tho
cellar door on the street, which was
fastened by a hook on the in
side, and after thus entering
the cellar, ascending to the saloon
above through the trap door. The
safe door was drilled through to the
lock, evidently with the intention of
introducing powder and blowing off
the door, but at this point operations
were suspended, the probable cause
being the loss of the powder, a pack
age of which was picked up on the
street tho following morning, indica
that it had been dropped by the bur
glars before entering the building. A
lamp taken from the Hammond House
barn, and some tools from Naylor's
blacksmith shop, were left in the Ba
loon. No clue that has led to any
arrests as yet.
It has been said that "the wealth
of Nebraska is in her grasses," and
when the great aud growing cattle
interests of the state are considered
the application is plain, and one of
the most advantageous means of util
izing and turning to account this
abundant spontaneous product of the
soil, aud thus making stock raising
the principle and most profitable in
dustry of the state, made plain. The
writer, by way of a little healthful
recreation, in company with a friend,
took a ride over on the " Island "
across the Loupe, the other day, and
in course of the ride made a short call
at the farm of C E. Morse, and was
permitted to look upon some forty
head of as fine steers as are not often
got together without culling. They
were beef fat, and we were told that
they had been but a short time off the
raugc, from which they were driven
in the fine condition that they then
appeared. Thin pasturage and lim
ited range would have made a far
different appearance in 'those steers,
and when ready for the market the
debit side of the account with them
for corn fed would take a much larger
sum from the 6ales total, and the bal
ance not make Charlie so entirely
satisfied with this item of his
farm receipts as he undoubtedly will
1 be after he markets.
The Republican Rally
At the Court House Thursday even
ing la6t was largely attended, the hall
being filled to its utmost capacity.
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. Leander Gerrard, chairman of the
Congressional Central Committee of
ho Anti -monopolists of the Third
. district, who stated briefly, the object
of the meeting and called for the elec
tion of officers to preside, and was
himself chosen as president, Mr. Ger
hard Schutte, vice-president and Mr.
Henry Gerrard, secretary.
The president then introduced as
the first epeaker of the evening Mr.
M. Whitmoyer of this city, who in a
brief speech confined himself to facts
iu connection with Mr. Turner's nom
ination, clearly demonstrating the
regularity of the same, and throwing
the odium and whole responsibility of
the bolt upon the Valentine faction,
where it undoubtedly belongs.
The next speaker introduced by the
president as one of the greatest, if not
the greatest, orator of the west, was
Gen. A. H. Connor. The general, by
way of introduction, 6tated that he
would rather not be introduced as an
orator, but would prefor to address
an audience whose expectations were
not heightened by the form of his in
troduction, in which case the judg
ment passed upon his effort would be
strictly upon its merit. But his speech
fully sustained Mr. Gerrard's state
ment in his introduction. His was
strictly an anti-monopoly speech, and
while he dealt fairly with the rail
roads of the country, giving them
credit for much good done the state of
Nebraska, he very eloquently and log
ically presented some very cogent
reasons why they are a dangerous and
detrimental power to the best inter
ests of any section of the country
without proper regulation. The points
that he wished to impress upon the
minds of his hearers were so forcibly
and at the same time so happily pre
sented that the audience was held in
deep interest for more than an hour.
During the address some gentleman
that it would be natural and charitable
to conclude was of an inquiring turn
of mind and simply thirsted for infor
mation, while the General was giving
his views upon the pass system,
probably having heard that Gen. Van
Wyck rode upon a pasB, and seeing
the speaker so well posted on the
business, deliberately rose where he
sat and shot the question, "Why does
Gen. Vau Wyck ride on a pass," with
out prelude of any kind, full at the
General, who seemed to know why
the majority of politicians accept such
favors and the seeker after informa
tion got his answer. He seemed per
fectly satisfied with it and sat down
as if so profoundly grateful that he
was determined to shrink himself
down within himpelf as far as possi
ble, presumably to check any further
disposition to ask for information.
Mr. Turner made the closing speech
of the evening. He coincided with
what Mr. Connor had said with re
gard to the danger to the country by
uncontrolled railroad corporations,
and dwelt a short time in forcible
argument to show that these same
corporations were a dangerous power
iu the politics of the state.
Amid enthusiasm for Gen. Connor
and for Turner, the cougressional can
didate, the meeting was then closed.
Spark from Creston.
Wo wero astonished to hear that
our worthy opponent from Platte
Centre, "J. J. M." was such a talen
ted and accomplished young man. I
never havft had any doubt of his be
ing thaFacilc 2n'inccl)S f the noted
"Centre," but 1 have been unable to
surmise I beg to be excused for my
ignorance where there is an institu
tion that makes a specialty of teach
ing such beautiful language as "J. J.
M." dedicated to the valuable space
of the Democrat. "J. J. M.", I pre
sume, is a resident student of some
down-town Bar-room Association ex
pecting to graduate in a month or
two, with the honorary title of
Crank. I certainly could not com
prehend what a superior mental fac
ulty his lordship's majesty possessed,
until I perused the latest production
of his preternatural powers. He says
that he verily believes that if it were
not for a few upright deciples of
Thomas Jefferson, and, perhaps a few
of Creston's yerdant romantics, viz:
School-marms, that Creston would ere
this have suffered a similar fate to
Sodom aud Gomorrah. Allow me to
congratulate you, sir, that you are not
Creston's "School-marm," or if you
were, at the close of two hours, we
conjecture, thero would not be a large
enough bone left of that Lussus nat
ural, known as "J. J. M.," for to make
a good sized poodle's tooth-pick.
Creston's Board of Education has
been so enraptured with Prof. "J. J.
M's." proficiency in blaspheming, as
to have decided to offer him the prin
cipalship of the School of Profanity,
whenever they see fit to establish it.
Would you, like to know who this
noted "J. J. M." is? He is an ex-secretary
of the Farmer's Alliance who,
as I have heard lost his office of trust
by undertaking to run the business of
Mr. Olson, chairman of the Alliance
Central Committee, he Is the man, bo
says rumor, who did not have the
courage to meet Creston's "School
marm" and colleague on the rostrum
for a joint debate ; he is the man who
only a few months ago, would have
walked to Damascus (if there wonld
have been the slightest probability of
obtaining an audience) in order to
preach Alliance doctrines and convert
"democratic and republican sinners ;"
he is the man that was an ardent lover
of the Alliance as long as 6he puffed
with him at the helm, but when he
could no longer steer her he threw off
the yoke, became a howling anti-Alliance
man aud pronounced her dead and
her children lost beyond redemption.
It evidently is plain that "J. J. M."
will not attempt to disprove any of
the statements I made in my commu
nication of the 5th inst., but will un
dertake to ridicule me out of the
field of controversy, which, I dare
say, will require more presumption
and audacity than he has yet succeed
ed in mustering up.

En. Journal: Donbtless, at this,
as at most hotly contested elections,
men can be found mean enough to
print and circulate bogus'tickets, that
is tickets that are headed all right but
contain one or more names of candi
dates on the other side. We do not
intend by this article to call the atten
tion of republicans alone to this kna
very, but all honest voters, who wish
the majority to secure their just
rights, are called upon to watch aud
suppress everything of this nature.
And in this connection, we will call
the attention of ticket printers and
voters to the fact that in voting upon
tho proposed amendment to the con
stitution, by law, your ballots must
read "For proposed amendment to
the constitution relating to rights of
suffrage;" or "Against proposed
amendment to the constitution rela
ting to rights of suffrage."

At the Republican meeting held at
Stearns precinct Oct. 20th, '82, Mr.
Macfarland and Byron Millett ad
dressed the meeting, making very
good speeches in favor of E. K. Val
entine for congress. Their speeches
were rebuted by the anti-monopoly
men and particularly by the reply of
D. L. Bruen, in a speech of a half or
three quarters of an hour in length.
At the close of his speech Mr. Jenkin
sou arose aud proposed to give three
cheers for M. K. Turner the regular
nominee for congress in the Third
district and the audience made the
school house ring with applause.

A Reproductive Comet.
The present comet in the Eastern
sky, which can be distinctly seen by
everyone at early morning, is certain
ly the most remarkable one of all the
modern comets. Prof. Lewis Swift,
director of the Warner Observatory,
Rochester, N. Y., states that the comot
grazed the sun so closely as to cause
great disturbance, so much so that it
has divided into no less than eight
separate parts, all of which can be
distinctly seen by a good telescope.
There is only one other instance on
record where a comet has divided,
that ouo being Biella's comet of 184C,
which separated into two parts. Ap
plications have been made on Mr.
H. H. Warner by parties who have
noted these cometary offshoots, claim
ing the $200 prize for each one of
them. Whether the great comet will
continue to produce a brood of small
er comets remains to be seen.
