Soiuo of our exchanges complain
that the gtflno laws virtually favor tho
men who violate them, as for instance:
that it. is unlawful to kill prairie chick

now tho chicken is hunted and killed in
violation of law.
Tho ieoplo of Schuyler want to
know what we have laws for? What we
have a police force for? What wo have
a police judge for? Indications would

mocracy, yelled, out on a foul.
Many of thoso in attendance on the
convention hist week were not aware
that Columbus was so largo a place, and
that it was so far along with public im
provements. The street cars, especially,
were a surpriso to many of them. Con
servative Columbus stands in tho front
row of young cities in the United States,
and does no bragging.

Tho B. k, M. It. K. have arranged to

Charlie Wilch of Schuyler, the young
man who was partially paralyzed and

into shallow water and striking his head
on the sand, is reported as mending

Laura Doyle interested themselves and
by solicitation secured S2" to purchase
Wilch an easy chair, so says tho Sun.
Our attention has been called to the
fact that quite a number of business
men are in tho habit of throwing waste
paper into the street. There is an or
dinance against such a practice. A lady
driving in tho streets hist Thursday
narrowly escaped an accident caused by
tho horso she was driving being fright
ened at a largo piece of papor Hying
through tho street.
E. D. Fitzpatrick has let the con
tract to James Poarsall to build him, on
his lot south of Frankfort Square and
between Win. Speico and Pat. Murray's,
a hall 22x66 feet. It is to be completed
throughout in good shape for the gen
eral purpose of a public hall, with a
seating capacity of four hundred. We
believe that "Fitz." will find profit in
his investment, and he is certainly to be
commended for his enterprise.
Tho Seventh Day Adventist confer

Rev. O. V. Rico was called by tele
gram Sunday morning to Shenandoah,
la., by tho death of his brother, Bert
Rice. The circumstances were detailed
in Sunday's Bee. A family row was in
progress in the Gallup family about 950
Saturday night, and citizens were arous
ed and came to the place to see what
was wrong. Frank Gidlup, a notorious
tough of the place, shot Frank J. Pine, a
hardware merchant, twice, killing him
instantly. Afterwards several members
of a militia company entered tho house,
Mr. Bert Rice being of the number, and
they were fired upon by Frank Gallup
who was concealed in the cellar. The
latest news Sunday was that Gallup had
been shot, and that four peaceable eiti
zens had lost their Uvea.

Mr. Bryan stated that the chairman
of tho stato central committee is receiv
ing eight or ten letters a day announc
ing the coining of a republican into the
democratic fold. At that rate, etc. Now,
let it be supposed, for the sake of the
argument, that that statement is true, it
would take more days, many times over,
than there are between now and election
day, to convert the republican majority
in Nebraska into a democratic suprem
acy. Besides, tho committeeman of the
democracy doesn't receive the letters of
an opposite character. Tho states to
study are Indiana, Now York, New
Jersey and Connecticut. These four
wheels are turning in good shape, and
the republican car is steadily and surely
advancing toward the White House.
The Passenger Department of the
Union Pacific, "The Overland Route,"
has issued a neat little pamphlet, pocket
size, entitled "National Platform Book,"
containing the democratic, republican
and prohibition platforms, together with
tho addresses of acceptance of Grover
Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison and Clin
ton B. Fisk; also tabulated tables show
ing the plurality vote, the electoral vote
and an analysis of the vote as cast for
Cleveland nnd Blaine in 1884. This
book is just what is needed at this time
and should be in the hands of every
voter. It plainly sets forth what each
party has to offer and every reader cun
draw his own comparisons. Sent to any
address on application. Address, J. S.
Tebbets, Gen'l Passenger Ag't, Union
Pacific Ry, Omaha, Neb.
Our old friend W. B. Coffin, who
was here hist week, seems to have struck
upon a remarkable invention for making
wells. He has patented his applianco
(worked out by himself and son), and is
in a fair way to become a wealthy man.
Wo do not undertake to fully describe
tho machine but it is a smaller tube
within a six-inch tube. Water is iorcod
(with a force pump) down tho inner
tube (which h;is, near the bottom a sand
loint), and acts as a lubricator,and is re
turned to tho surface, between tho inner
and outor tube. Mr. Coffin tolls us they
have sunk a number of wells, five of
them, as follows: 65 feet deep in 22 min
utes, 270 feet deep in 420 minutes, 180
feet deep in 300 minutes, 150 foot deep
in 150 minutes, 85 feot deep in 40 min
utes. In tho 180 foot well was 20 feet of
soft chalk. The man for whom tho 270
foot well was bored had spent between
S400 and 500, without success. We le
lievo, from all accounts wo have had
from others that Coffin & Son have a
wonderful invention and one that will
be of incalculable benefit to the great
west beyond us, where, in places, wells
must bo bored hundreds of feet.
Don't neglect to attend your party
primaries; it is here that you begin to
make your intluence felt. He who af
fects to think that the primaries are not
worth his consideration, has yet to loarn
the a b c of practical politics. If there
is any man living under our form of
government who believes things are so
thoroughly wrong that he cannot con
scientiously take part in the endeavor to
conduct things rightly, let him bring us
all to his way of thinking or else move
out of the country. We have great ad
miration for men who, conscientiously
and upon principle, move out of the
beaten track, or even stem the popular
current to work their will, but those
who assume, not only that every existing
political organization is corrupt, but
that the race of mankind are so entirely
self-seeking that there is no hope of
good, are altogether too ethereal for life
under a republican form of government
like ours, nnd should search out a more
congenial canopy. Republics imply
parties, for only through these can gov
ernment be made effective. Ally your
self with the party that most nearly ex
presses your views, and endeavor to
bring it up to your standard of what is
Mr. Bryan of Lincoln made a demo
cratic campaign speech in Frankfort
Square Monday evening to a goodly
gathering of democrats and a large
sprinkling of republicans. His efforts
seemed to please his party friends. His
main theme, as we learn, was the tariff.
While he expatiated on the beauties of
free trade in lumber, coal and salt, we
are told he seemed carefully to avoid
saying anything about people who live
in sod houses being ground down by
eastern capitalists and the robber
tariff that keeps up the duty on sugar.
Tho issue tendered by the democracy
in this campaign is the Mills bill, a pro
duct of the southern wing of the democ
racy, designed to build up the interests
of the 6onth and work against those of
the north. The solid south, which fail
ed a quarter of a century ago U over
turn the government by force of arms,
is seeking commercial supremacy by un
just tariff legislation. The states lately
in rebellion have an undue advantage
over the loyal states in their representa
tion in congress and in the electoral
college which chooses our presidents,
and now, if undue commercial advant
ages are to be accorded them, we ought
to do it with our eyes open to what is

A. Smith, of the vicinity of Platte
Center, this county, was a Columbus
visitor Saturday, and always a welcome
one at the Journal sanctum. Mr. Smith
long ago began to feel the effects of an
army life and more especially of a term
at Libby and Andersonville prisons,
where ho was four months und three
months and ten days, respectively. Wo
related to Mr. S. an instance of ono of
the boys of our acquaintance, hearty and
strong when he went to Andersonville
nnd a mere matter of bones and skin
when ho came from there, so weakened
by starvation and abuse that he scarcely
had strength to live, and memory was so
strong upon him that for a year after
wards he could not bear unmoved tho
sight of bread thrown to chickens. Mr.
Smith said that to this day, many years
after his prison life, if ho should begin
to speak of those times, his recollection
of the hardships was so vivid that it was
The State Fair.

The county institute now in session
starts out with flattering prospects. The
enrollment on Tuesday morning reached
seventy. All parts of the county tire
represented. More are yet to arrive, and
those observant in snch matters say
that tho attendance will pass ono hun
dred very considerably. Tho older
teachers of the county are in attendance
in larger nnmbers than usual, and many
younger persons are present looking
forward to tho work.
Prof. Knepper has taken hold of tho
work in a masterly manner, and handles
matters with that neatness and skill
which exporionco gives. The teachers
are deeply interested in his manner of
handling the affairs of tho institute.
Ho is an instructor of unusual ability,
and of a free and open manner that in
vites to confidence. His work all bears
directly on tho county schools and the
trials and perploxities thoro encounter
ed, and his vast experience gives a pe
culiar value to his suggestions.
Miss Parker litis charge of tho reading,
and is awakening an interest in this

Miss Lease conducts her department
in a pleasing manner, and illustrates
tho modern methods of primary work in
a manner that clears tho way for teach
ers who cannot go abroad to obtain
knowledge at the fountain heads. Her
work promises to bo very successful.
