Secretary Bayard does not eeera to
be a good man of affairs, and is
decidedly a poor judge of human
nature, if we may be allowed to
think that he is responsible for the
blunders that have been made by
this democratic administration in
nolnr.tins? reDreaentatives for this
w a m -
country in Japan, China, Mexico and
England. Henry Watteraon of the
Louisville Courier, whose democracy
there is none to dispute, says that
Phelps, this country's representative
in England, has assured the tories
there that "all these home-rule
demonstrations in America were by
demagogues seeking the Iiish vote."
Watteraon further says, and he
speaks from observation, "I do not
mean that the Americau minister in
London should wrap the Americau
flacr about him and perform. I do
not mean that ho should stick hie j
legs in a pair of Irish jack-boots and
whoop up the boys. But I do say
that popularity in England for a
minister of the United States means
the subordination of American to
British ideas, and the adoption by
the minister of a complete British
outfit. Mr. Phelps showed that he
had done this, or was seeking to do
it, when he tickled the tories by the
conceit that nobody in America but
a ritr-raffot demagogues, seekiug the
Irish vote, sympathized with Mr.
Gladstone iu his home rule light, ami

the good graces of the riff-raff, our

The iustiuct of the Irish in the last
presidential cauipaiyu, when Imh'.s of
them voted against Cleveland and
for Blaine, was founded on the fact
that tho policy enunciated by Blaine
was purely American, and not in
favor of English interests a against
our own. Iris-b-Americans, why
should you support an administration
or a party which will so belie your
sentiments abroad, and truckle to
gain favor? Phelps is too much of
an aristocrat to represent any phase
of American politics except the kid
gloved, silk-pursed democracy. This
administration thinks to contiuue
itself, perhaps, by catering to
southeru politicians (whence comes
the 6olid strength in a nominating
convention) and to British influences,
which are alarmingly strong in New
York, in commercial affairs.
Repmlrilcsm State CoaTeatloa.
The convention of Wednesday last
was the largest party gathering ever
convened in tho State. It did its
work between seven o'clock p. m.,
and two a. m., and did it unusually
well. There was a marked absence
of unnecessary speech-making. Many
at the time wondered that no nomi
nating speeches were made. When
the chair declared nominations in
order, there was au ominous lull, and
everybody was expectant. No man
roBe in his place to "present a name"
to that vast assembly. The delay
was but momentary, and the conven
tion moved on to its work, minus the
speeches that uo doubt had been well
prepared for the occasion. It is
supposed that each ppeaker wished
to be the last one, and none wanted
to bo followed by John Thurston.
Most of tho talking in the conven
tion wa6 done on the proposition
favoring the submission of a prohibi
tory amendment to the constitution,
to a vote of tlic people, which was
carried by a decided majority, not
withstanding the earnest protesta
tion against such a policy, by (J ere,
Rosewatcr, Laird, and others.
Donbtlet-s many voted affirmatively
on this proposition who will vote
against prohibition, on (lie ground
that the people should be at full
liberty to declare their will in the
The vote on the proposed censure
of tho legislature for euacting the
railroad commission law, after the
submitted amendment had received
the disapproval of the electors of the
state two years ago, was taken with
out much discussian. This method
of testing the real sense of the con
vention was perhaps uuiortunate,
there probably being a number of
members of the legislature and their
friends present who would not care
to join in the censure. A resolution
pledging the republican party of
Nebraska to make the present law
more effective or else to repeal if,
would, we believe, have received the
assent of the convention, and would
be, in our opinion, in full accord
with the sentiment of the people of
Nebraska without respect to political
affiliations, outside of railroad influ
ences. This, we feel sure, is what
the republican party, at the next ses
sion, will do.
The Madison Democrat is trying to
make itself believe that the Republi
can party in this state is all torn up
on the Van Wyck question, and that
there is hope for the Democracy to
elect the next U. S. senator. While
Republicans, as is the usual thing
with them, are divided in' sentiment,
being independent thiukers, they are
abundantly able to select a U. S.
senator who will be republican, all
the way through, and a man to rep
resent the 'people's interests. As the
campaign proceeds, this fact will
be abundantly demonstrated. No
coalitions or tie-ups that the democ
racy can make, no amount of extra
labor and means spent to capture
doubtful districts, and no amount of
abuse heaped upon republican candi
dates will be effective in electing
anythiug but a simon-pure republican
to the U. S. senate.
Terrible loss of life is reported
from exploding fire damp in a Ger
man mine near Scbalke the other day
killing forty-five persons tad serious
ly injuring sixteen others.
Some nieu are never satisfied, un
less they can claim a victory. The
Beatrice Express says : "with James
Laird for temporary chairman of the
state convention, and A. J. Weaver
for permanent chairman, tho Express
fails to discover where a victory for
Van Wyck comes iu the state con
vention so as to be made a Van
Wyck test. How does he like U i
If there was any trial of strength on
the organization of the convention,
after it met at the Opera House, it
was not visible to spectators. The
"stipulations" seemed to be carried
out to the letter, as far as they went,
viz : to the appointment of the com
mittees. Neither wing of the party
is in a situation to claim a victory
over the other, in the organization of
the convention, and the Beatrice
Express may as well understand now,
as later, that the republican party of
Nebraska is a unit on national issues,
if not entirely harmonious on state
matters. Van Wyck will be his own
successor, if the people's wish is
carried out.
We have never beeu able to see
why the Republican party of Nubras
ka, after placing in the constitution
and npnu the statute book the right
of the electors to express their pref
erence for U. S. Seuator, should have
gtme uo further towards making the
law effective. Tho democracy, it
seem, are inclined to take advantage
of the situation, and make a nomina
tion at their state convention. And
this would doubtless be a good thing
for theui to do. The Butler Couuty
Press says : "There will be an effort
iu the Democratic. State Cnuvcutiou
to nominate a caudidato lor U. S.
Seuator. James E. Boyd will proba
bly receive the nomination. It is a
step in the right direction. It is
very proper that the democratic
party should be true to its past his
tory and be tho first party to recog
nize the principle involved iu the
right of the people to express their
The State Journal says that "Bene
dict, the new public printer, plays
the same old dodge that has served
the administration so well from the
beginning. Having a great many
friends to supply with places who
couldn't wait for the slow action of
a pretended "weeding out" of in
efficient employes, he discearged 125
men from the office in a bunch
claiming that they were superfluous,
and that he was an economy and re
form "Injun" of tho first water.
This he caused to be telegraphed all
over the country. In less than thirty
days be will have replaced them with
hia own friends in squads of two to
a dozen a day, but he will not tele
graph anything about it. It is the
meanness of this democratic method
that commends it to the favor of the
administration as high statesmanship.
But it wasn't the way of old An
drew Jackson. He had many faults
but be abhorred low tricks."
It does make a difference; the
Omaha Jtepublican seems not to be
very favorable to the election of
Dr. L. J. Abbott of Fremont, to the
State Senate. The Doctor is an old
republican ; a republican from prin
ciple; not an office-seeker by any
means; he is an enthusiastic political
worker, and was nominated by a
full fledged republican convention.
Is the Jtepublican about to antagon
ize the nominees of the party through
nut the state who may not be in
accord with itself on objects of
minor in.portance, or is it about to
continue its attempt to be the leading
organ of the party in the state, by
airing its prejudices against individ
ual republicans who have independ
ence enough to do their own think
ing? One of our exchanges remarks that
Rosewater can hardly conceal his
preference for Thurston as Senator
Mandersou's successor, or words to
that effect. If John Thurston had
always " paddled his own canoe,"
instead of becoming an attorney for a
railroad, thus neutralizing half his
native force, he would be oue of the
greatest individual forces if not the
very greatest, in Nebraska politics.
He has many good qualities, but the
political leader mimt keep very close
to the heart of the people, cost what
it may. Here, as elsewhere, the man
who is most self-sacrificing, is most
honored by the admiration of his
fellow men.
The democracy of the county will
find just a little neater contest this
time than they have ever bad before
in Platte county. You want to put a
weight, a heavy weight on every
stone, or you will find it turned
against you. Don't waste any time.
Make the campaign short, sharp and
decisive. It is not on the principle
of being forearmed by being fore
warned, but because tho Journal
wishes to let you down easy.
If a Republican president had spent
as much time away from Washington
as Cleveland has done, there would
have been a continuous outcry all
over the country from the democratic
prees. Cleveland will be all the bet
ter for his vacation, and, if he will
take a trip west the next time, and
"view the land," he will have a better
conception of the magnitnde of his
high office than he has yet shown.
The clerk of Butler county has
been instructed by the county Com
missioners to provide in the election
proclamation for this year "an op
portunity for the electors of Butler
county to express their choice for a
U. S. seuator to be elected by the
legislature of 1887."
The belief that the fire at North
Bend that occurred last August and
destroyed about $100,000 worth

arrested and jailed at Fremont,
charged with setting the ire.
