' &aV3ti$ififf,AiBCHiii,s speech in New

surplus .with .certain national banks
throughout the country, without inter
erest, to do what they pleased with it, in
their line of business. A surplus is a
good thing for the government to have
in case of an .emergency, good to have
and to accumulate in order to meet an
indebtedness coming due; good to hare
to draw upon for needed current ex
penses, but it is not good to have for the
purpose of using it as a political cam
paign fund. "The end justifies the

We egain, and for the best interests of

these violations of election laws to cease

The republicans have placed in nomi

Hampton is particularly fitted for legis

a quick intellect that could readily ob
serve and grasp the situation and state
of a question, and having observed, he
has the moral courage to stand up for
his convictions against all odds that
may be brought against him. He has a
dignity of manner, and high regard for
honor and right that would make him
unapproachable by the polluting, pur
chasing power that thwarts the will of
the masses, by corrupting the legisla
tors. He makes the work in hand his
study and has the qualifications to make
an able; efficient and usefnl sen-ant, and
will appceciate the .honor, if elected,

gent voter in doubt respecting the use
he would make of the casting vote in

president. Twice before in the history
of this country has the cause of protec
tion been beaten by the deciding vote of
the vice president. The senate today is
so evenly divided that the gain of a sin
gle seat will enable the democracy to
pass the Mills bill with the aid of the
vice president's vote. Judge Thurman
would cast that vote. He has proclaim
ed his sympathy with legislation in
direct opposition to protection and there
can be no doubt as to the stand taken
by him. Do the people of this country

Four Italians have been arrested at
White Haven, Pa, charged with the
murder of Paymaster McClure and his

his person when killed about $17,000 in

in addition to the $12,000 cash stolen
from McClure. Suspicion arrests upon

were plainly informed that he wanted 5

were further informed that those who
did not come up with the money asked
for, need not expect to retain their po

The house was in session only two
days last week Tuesday, and Friday
and it is not likely to meet oftener this
week. The fact of the matter is that so
few of the members of the house remain

not be right to adopt any legislation. of
importance, and have given notice that
they would raise the joint of "no quo
rum" against anything but private pen
sion bills, and a resolution to take a
recess or adjourn. The senate is also
without a quorum, and the number,
present is daily growing less; as fast as
the senators make their speeches' on the
tariff bill, they leave for home, with the
expressed intention of not returning un
til after election. The fact being patent
that it will be impossible to pass the
senate tariff bill before election, added
to. the anxiety of both members and
senators to get home and take part in
the campaign, makes it certain that con

RECOLliF.CTIONS OF AN OLD SETTLER.
Old Settler Observe Christmas -They
Celebrate the Fourth of- Jaly Ar
rival of the First Stage.
In the winter of 1856 there was a small
band of eight or ten persons .mostly
bachelors, who wintered here, and there
is a tradition to the effect that having
provided, a wild turkey for their Christ
mas dinner, and recollecting that accord
ing.to.all precedent a. turkey should be
stuffed before roasting, and being unfa
miliar with the modus operandi of that
process, they utilized the. most conven
ient article on hand, which happened to
dried apples. After the fowl was placed
in the oven, there was soon an exemplifi
cation of the proverbial expansibility of
that article of diet under the influence of
moisture, and it is. also, stated that the
flavor of tho ruins of that turkey was not
improved by the dressing.
The following spring of 1857 witnessed
the arrival of quite a number of new
settlers and on the approach of the "day
we .celebrate" arrangements were made
for-the first celebration of the Fourth of
July ever held, in Platte county. The
celebration was held along side, of the
store of Frank G. Becher near the place
where his son John now resides. A din
ner was prepared and a stage erected, on
which .the. addresses were delivered. The
orators were. Alex. B. Pattison,-the first
probate judge elected in Platte county,
who subsequently returned to Indiana,
and commanded a company of an Indi
ana regiment in the army of the Potomac
under Gen. McClellan, and. also through
Gen.. Grant's campaign, and. is now a
banker at Laurenceburgb', Indiana; Geo.
W. Hewitt, the other orator, was subse
quently the editor of a democratic
paper at New London, Conn. The ad
dresses were goodj and contained the
regulation -allusions to "the time that
tried men's souls," and the star-spangled
Towards the latter part of the after
noon the eyes of all were directed east
ward, down the military road, for it was
understood that Uncle Sam had granted
a tri-weekly service from Omaha to Fori.
Kearney, and the first stage was expect
ed to arrive that afternoon, which, it
may be easily imagined, was a great
event to the squatters, as previously, the
only mails' we had were brought by the
teams that made trips to Omaha and
return for goods. Finally a cloud of
dust denoted its coining and in a few
minutes, amid the enthusiastic cheering
of the assembled squatters, the mail
coach arrived, and delivered the first
regular mail at pur post-office.
While standing on the corner of the
street the other day, I overheard a man
make the remark that it would make no
particular difference to our merchants
and businessmen here if the people were
to go to Omaha and buy their groceries
and dry goods or anything else they
needed, because he thought they could
buy cheaper in Omaha than here! What
an idea! To think it would not hurt our
business men here. That man must be
a "free trade' crank, to hold forth such
an idea. It might not affect tho town
much for two or three or Bay a dozen
families tp buy their supplies elsewhere,
but let all the people in the city and
surrounding country buy their supplies
in Omaha for, we will say, sixty days,
where would our business men be?
Where would our fine stores be? Why,,
any one can answer that: Bursted high
er than -a kite, and stores locked up.
Common -sense and reason would tell
any one this. It is just the same with
labor, if we send abroad for labor. Can
we . expect to . keep good -mechanics
among us? No, they will go somewhere
else. If it was not for the laboring
class, what would this or any other city
or country amount to? Who is it puts
money into the rich man's pocket? Who
is it pays the most of our taxes, builds
our railroads, bridges and fine houses?
The laborer. Then why not help him?
He helps you, protect him. Why is it
our merchants and business men here
have imposed a tax on nearly all kinds of
business? Was it because -they had
more money than they knew what to do
with? No, it was to keep men that did
not live here, nor pay taxes, from selling
or doing business here, unless they con
tribute something to the support of city
police, waterworks, etc. Here is a little
"protective tariff' right at home. If it
is better for our merchants to have
"protective tariff why not the nation?
Let us practice abroad what we preach
at home and vice versa. Some say "this
is a free country, we can trade or get our
work done where we choose, we are the
ones that pay for it" That is true
enough, jt is free now, or supposed to
be,-but if all the people that have and (
keep the most of the money, were to do
this, how long would it be free? I say
the laborer would soon be worse off than
the negro before the rebellion. Where
do the men, from the millionaire down
to the smallest merchant, get their
money, if it is not out of the laboring
men? One man says he can get such
and such a job of work done' in Omaha
for seven dollars you would charge eight
for. Well, that man had better go-to
Omaha and live. He forgets what it is
worth io earn his bread by tho 'sweat at
his brow.' It is true 'some may over
charge for their work,, but there are.
others in., the same community -.who will
do it for what is-'right. I, for one, say it
is not -right to oppress any one or any
class of- people. If it is worth Jive dol
lars 'for one 'man to'do certain job of
work-it is worth that, for another to do
it, and any man that will try to get it
donefor less than, -it is' worth is not
honest, and he .would rob his own father
if he' got. tho chance. I say live and let
live, protect home! Show me the man
who would not help .father, son, or
brother before he' would a stranger, that
would not help home before he would
abroad, and I willhov a man that is no
good' to himself or any one else. ' I say
protect home and nation. Our home is
just .like the nation; only on a smaller
scale. Protection is one of nature's first
laws.- . ... UlNo.
