There is no question bnt James G.
Blaine is the favorite candidate of
Nebraska republicans for the presi
dency, bnt somehow the manipula
tion of the conventions has not been
by the men who are heart and soul
for Blaine. There seems to us to be
a good deal of the Grant element
abont the delegation which will
represent the state at Chicago. It
was very easy for the politician this
year, in this state, to say that he was
for 'Blaine just as natural as to
breathe, bat we believe a considerable
number of these delegates will be
ready to leave Blaine and the Blaine
forces at the first opportunity that
presents a plausible excuse.
It Is an evident fact that there was
but little to interfere with the cut-and-dried
programme of the anti
Blaine men at Lincoln, except the
overwhelming sentiment of the state,
and the gloating of the anti-Blaine
organs over the defect of a resolution,
not even hinting instruction, but de
claring the sense of the convention to
be for Blaine, is one ot the indica
tions to the general public of the deep
satisfaction of the anti-Blaine ele
ment as to the choice of delegates.
The Lincoln Journal has this to say :
"The wire edge was off the Blaine
"boom in this state before the con
tention assembled ; it ran down at
"the heel with considerable rapidity
"as the talk went on iu the hotelB and
"street corners along through the
"forenoon, but it suffered a regular
"horizontal reduction that would
"have delighted the aesthetic eye of
"Bill Morrison himself, shortly after
"the introduction of the unfortunate
"resolution at the wind up, declaring
"the preference of the convention for
"the nomination of Mr. Blaine for
No doubt but in this particular
case, "the wish is father to the
thought." It is not "unfortunate"
that men should wish to express their
preference; it is not "unfortunate"
that republicans, who know the state
is enthusiastic for Blaine, should wish
to say that the sense of the state is for
Blaine, but it is unfortunate that the
Blaine forces were not thoroughly
organized, that they had no agreed
plan, no programme, and, in short,
that they have allowed themselves to
be (as we believe) out-generaled by
the Arthur-Grant forces.
There is no disputing the fact that
Nebraska is now stronger for Blaine
than ever before, because he has not
lost any of his old friends, and he has
gained a host of new ones, who see in
him now the progressive spirit of re
publicanism, which would give the
country an administration gratifying
alike to the pride of patriotism, and
the ambition of the party; a spirit
which wonld revivify our foreign
commerce, enliven onr business and
political relations with the other na
tions of the earth, nnify and solidify
the elements of our land, and mark
an epoch in our history that would be
memorable for all time.
If, however, the juggling of poli
ticians is to again defeat the nomina
tion of Blaine, and it must be once
again deferred, let our delegates con
sider long before selecting any other
than that other independent, fearless,
outspoken, representative American
citizen from a different field of re
nown, Geueral W. T. Sherman, who,
with Lincoln, would certainly make
a ticket satisfactory to the great body
of republicans who cannot have
Blaine and Lincoln.

A Farmer's lotting;.
I am trying a new way of plowing.
At least new to me. The ordinary
narrow lands make too many middle
furrows, aud too much waste time
turning at the ends. Have tried
plowing around the field, but the
hard tramping of a strip at each
corner is quite objectionable. This
spring we commenced in tho center
of the fields, working out, and are
much pleased with the experiment.
We have all the advantages of plow
ing around a field, aud none of the
disadvautages. A farmer accustomed
to measure by tho step can find the
middle of the field from the sides,
aud the proper distance from the
cuds, for the ends of the first furrow,
without trouble. Should the finish
ing not come out exact, it would only
necessitate going around or back fur
rowing a narrow laud on one or more
sides. The advantage of this plan
over plowing in lands, I consider
very great. If we plow in narrow
lands, so many middio furrows are
objectionable. If in wide lands we
must either waste much time iu going
around at the euds, or plow across
the ends, tho team turniug on tho
plowed grouud. The difference
between the amount a man and team
cau do, by going around solid work,
and by plowing in lands, is much
greater than oue would think; who
has not given the matter much at
tention. By the way, what a splendid coun
try this is to plow in. Such mag
nificent fields, and no obstructions,
aud I never tire of watching tho
dark, rich, mellow soil, as it rolls
from the plow share. I am sure there
can be uo more enjoyable work thau
following the plow on these Nebraska
farms. How 1 pity the man who has
to spend these spring days behind the
counter, or over his desk, or in his
office, waiting for somebody to get
into trouble, that ho may help him
I wonder if many farmers have
had their patience tried by tree agents
as I have. It seems to me, for tho
most part, they are a terrible
-nuisance. I was persuaded again,
agaiust my judgment, last year to
give an order, and I am satisfied the
entire stock received is not worth as
many cents as the bill amouuted to in
dollars. I do not want to do any ad
vertising for our townsman, John
Tannahill, but I find I can get both
seeds and nursery stock, at less prices,
from him than from theso foreigners,
and know I am getting what I order
every time. Besides that, he is safe,
he will not talk a man to death. I
believo the discouragement in regard
to raising fruit, felt by many farjners,
is as much owing to unreliable tree
peddlers, as anything else. The day
of plenty of home fruit is surely
coming to us, but we must have good
stock to commence with, and then
handle it with more knowledge and
care. J. H. R.
The Unworthy Poor. Flash Pa
pers aad Paupers.
Mr. Editou: An article, "Flash
papers and Dime Novels," iu No. 72G
of the Jouhn'AL, and the proceedings
of our honorable board of supervi
sors, have caused me to stop and
think. The piece named first, shows
conclusively how destructive such
trashy 6tufi" is to our rising genera
tion, and it should ouly have goue a
step further to show eveu how much
worse it is in its destructive tenden
cies upon the minds and whole beiug
of our wives and mothers.
No one can be more willing, that
the deserving poor in our midst
should be taken care of than your
present writer. He would even go a
little farther and say that they ought
to bo sought out, and inquiries made
as to their necessities. The most
deserving and needy ones are often
too modest to make their wants
known. But, when an able bodied
man, drawing a pension, living with
an able bodied wife, and a nnmber of
children, able to earn bread aud
cIothe3, throw themselves upon the
connty or township for food, clothing
or house rent, then something most
be rotten so'mewhere, and when the
writer happens-to know that some
paupers have money and time to read

into the male department, the woman
iuto that of tho females, and the chil

Moual : A man who is not wil

Cincinnati's criminal court is deal
ing out a very fair article of justice
just now. Highway robbers get from
ten to twenty years in tho peniten
tiary ; common burglars from seven
to ten years ; sneak thieves about five
years and horse thieves fifteen years.
The reason is plain. Decent men,
aroused by the recent riot to the im
portanco of performing their public
duties, are now seen in the jury box
occasionally, aud when the evidence
against a prisoner is found to bo con
clusive he is 6et down as guilty with
out qualification. It is to be tearcd
that this spasm will not be long lived,
but so long as -it lasts Cincinnati is
bound to be an unhealthy locality for
criminals. The offenders now in jail
charged with capital and otbor crimes
are certain to discovor that the law is
still in existence, though they may
havo had doubts on that point when
their offenses were committed. If
the administration of justice falls
again into the corrupt courses which
characterized it previous to the recent
uprising it will bo the fault of the cit
izens themselves. Chicago Herald.
