T the Electors Hekraika.
In a country governed by the peo
ple, forthe people, the higher pre
rogative of the elector is the tree and
untrammelled choice of the public
servants who administer the govern
ment. While the national Senate
represents the sovereignty of the states
each senator should be the true rep
resentative of the sovereign people
of the commonwealth. This was the
aim and object of the framers of our
state constitution when they made
provision for the expression
of the popular choice in
the selection of senator. For ten
years this provision of the constitu
tion has been a dead letter. Although
a law framed in conformity with the
constitutional proviso was passed by
the legislature years ago, and officers
of election are required to make re
turns of the vote upon the electors'
preference for United States Senator,
no aspirant has, aa yet, ventured to
ask the people for a direct expres
sion of confidence and preference.
Without presumption on my part
that any man has a vested right to
public office, however meritorious or
faithful he may be, I desire to appeal
to the people of Nebraska for a direct
vote expressing their preference for
United States senator. There aro
doubtless others in this state more
worthy than I am of your confidence,
and it will afford me great pleasure
to meet any of them lor a public dis
cussion of the living and vital issues
of the day. The office of United
States senator is a position of great
responsibility, and the people should
know the views of every man who
desires to represent Nebraska in the
upper house of congress. I trust that
it is not inappropriate in this connec
tion to refer briefly to my services in
behalf ot the slate during my term
now drawing to a close. By that iec
ord let judgment be given. I have
doubtless erred u hoiuc instances, as
all men do, but even my worst ene
mies cannot poiut to any act that
would impeach my personal integrity
or reflect discredit upou the state
which has honored mc. While I
claim to have done only my duty in
the light iu which I was able to see
it and claim no credit tor the laithful
discharge of the trust committed to
me, I Only desire to exercise the right
which I have in common with all
citizens to challenge my competitors
for tho senatorial position to a sub
mission to a popular verdict of their
respective claims to the senatorial
succession. C. H. VanWyck.
Nebraska City, Aug. 15, 1SS0.
The bill taxing oleomargarine and
similar products has been passed by
the Senate, with an amendmeut re
ducing the tax from five to two cents
per pound. Senator Manderson
voted for the bill, Senator Van Wyck
dodged. Wayne Herald .
Van Wyck's position was that the
bill as proposed protected a fraud.
The Congressional Record, pp. 7,558,
Mr. Van Wyck. Why is oleomar
garine put up in the shape of butter
if it is not intended to deceive? Be
fore there was any bill introduced
into Congress, Messrs. Armor & Co.,
came here and they now come and
tell ub they brand their goods, they
label them so that no one can be de
ceived, and yet the very brand which
they make and put upon this pro
duction shows an intention to de
ceive. Here is their own brand ex
hibiting : "Armour & Co., Pure
Dairy Butterine." Why "dairy"?
Will some one tell me why put in
(1oiipw if nst intAtulafl iTofnitra?
"Pure dairy butterine." Then an
other brand they have. If they can
get on the racket of that, as the boys
say, they have another brand : "Ar
mour & Co., Fiuest Creamery But
terine." Why "creamery"?
Mr. Miller. The Senator will per
mit me to suggest that I think he
was present in the committee at the
time Mr. Webster produced that
brand and said to fhe committee
that, at the request of a customer,
they would leave off "butterine" and
"oleomargarine" entirely aud put on
any fancy name a "Oakfield Cream
ery" or anything else anybody might
Mr. Van Wyck. Exactly. That
was being done beforo any bill was
introduced into cither House of Con
gress. Gentlemen say they have a
right to make oleomargariue ot but
ferine. Certainly, they have; and if
it has been kept as oleomargarine
and butterine and so had been placed
on the market the first word proba
bly never would have been uttered in
the legislation of Congress on the
The Bee of Monday contained an
address to the electors of Nebraska,
by Senator Van Wyck, which we re
produce in to-day's Journal. It is
straight-forward and manly. Aside
from any political friendship for
Senator Van Wyck, on general prin
ciples, and because it is the law of
the state and has been for years, the
Journal has been and is in favor of
the electors expressing their pref
erence for United States Senator.
The main objection to an attempt to
carry out the law is that senators and
representatives are not obligated to
vote as the preference of their con
stituency should iudicate; the answer
to which is that neither are our pres
idential electors obligated to vote for
the candidates named on their ticket
for President and Vice-President, but
they do so vote, and we cannot doubt
that the same would be the case here.
Firwt Fair rthe Seasem.
Fairmont Fair begins August 31
and lasts four days. It is noted for
its large 'purses, fast races, liberal
premiums and large display of thor
oughbred stock. This year it has
ambitiously thrown its gates open to
the world for competition iu all de
partments. As it is the first fair of
the season, and offers $3,200 cash

If Nance don't capture things ia
Polk county this fall, it will be be
cause the people of that county are
truer to principle than they are in
any part of Butler county. Nance
don't propose to "lose his grip" if
money will cut any figure in the pol
itics of Polk connty this fall. Ulysses
Our colemporary is not very well
posted on this subject. Probably no
man in Nebraska who' has occupied
the public positions that Nance has,
or anything like them, has spent leas
money than he has to get them. If
his securing an office depended npon
bia spending much money, Nance
woold'nt get it, and we are not now
commending his honesty, by any
means, only stating a well known
fact of natural history, if the Jour
nal may be allowed so to speak.
Nance doeR not, probably, wish to go
to the State Senate this winter, but
he would, undoubtedly, like to have
one of his men there, to serve bis
purposes. The State has had quite
enough, however, of Albinos Nance
in office, and if Polk county cannot
keep him from controling her poli
tics, the remainder of the state should
see that he makes no successful still
hunt for U. S. Senator or any other
office where high-minded, magnani
mous, earnest and conscientious
men of ability are needed.

Ed. Journal: I, as a large tax
payer, would wish space in your
valuable paper to ask the Board of
Supervisors a few questions, which I
hope they will answer at their earli
est convenience, viz: Why did they
allow themselves at the term of
equalization the assumed liberty of
passing over and not keeping in
sight the thirty or more cars fat cattle
and hogs that left Platte county on or
abont the third of April, 1886, if
they take npon themselves the res
ponsibility of being the sworn
guardians of the tax payer? Why, I
ask, did they do this wanton act, and
thereby saddle oa the taxpayer aa
nnjnst burden, while the stockman
goes Scott free? I believe there are
sob ttockmsa oa the Beard, -tit
uot enough I think to prevail in this
outrage without the complicity of
willing tools. Now the taxpayers of
the county have a just right to know
if this amount ot property amounting
in value in the neighborhood of
twenty thousand dollars and which
rightfully belonged to Platte county
bad any right whatever to go untaxed
and if so, who is at fault, the aosessor
or the Board of Supervisors? They
may not have been able to read them
in time, but the Board had every op
portunity to seo that the stock or
moneys accruing therefrom was
taxed. I understood that a certain
stockman went before the Board and
stated that the cattle in bis possession
at the time of taxing tbera did not
belong to him, hut that they were
sold beforehand. Now, the question
is, were these cattle sold in Chicago
prior to April, 1886, or were tbey
purchased by moneys received out
of the banks in Columbus, aud for the
loaning of such moneys did the Co
lumbus banks have a lien on said
stock? If so, the proof is in the
Couuty Clerk's office; if the banks
had no lien on such stock, but wore
secured by note for this loaned
money then the notes were taxable,
and the stock also, as the notes draw
a large percentage and the stock be

Ed. Journal, Dear Sir: It is a
long time since yon had a word from
me. Having a tew leisure moments,
1 thought I would drop you a line.
I have several times sent you papers
that you might seo tho true state of
affairs in Utah, but there are really so
few that care to even tell tho truth
about this couimuuity that I have
come to the conclusion not to worry
mywelf, but wait for the time when
justice will be mctcd out to all alike,
and the oppressor no longer rule over
a once happy aud prosperous people.
This is a rich aud beautiful country,
desirable for man to live in. I love
my mountaiu home, and our people,
by their faith and works, have made
it what it is, a place of boauty and a
joy forever. But now the despot
reigns, and the people's hearts are
filled with sorrow. Their husbands
and fathers are either exiled or in a
prison, their happy homes broke up,
their families scattered they know
not where, rather than be brought
before a set of men who have neither
shame nor decency abont them, who
delight in plying innoceut women
and children with tho most indecent
questions. You have no idea of the
outrages that have been perpetrated
upon the people here in the name of
law and justice. I have often thought
if such a set should get on the judicial
bench in Columbus, how quickly tbey
would be dethroned. Methinks I
can see them fleeing now.
The people here take it all very
quietly and peaceably, knowing in
whom they have believed and still
put their trust. This is a God-fearing,
law-abiding people, notwithstanding
all that is said to the contrary. You
must please excuse this long letter ;
this is the very sincere sentiments of
my heart. My religion is more than
life to me, my hope, my heaven,

than any farmer ia the State, we
noticed that hi sou, DeWitt, seemed
to be skinning off at the bands. Mr.

I showed os how the skin, even on the

in flakes and a new skin appearing
underneath. He explained that
several years ago the child was
badly poisoued with poison oak, and
every Bpriag he broke out and suf
fered greatly. He had applied every
known remedy to relieve the sufferer,
and employed physicians to attend
him, bat with no avail. "In fact."
