Tn democratic organ of Platte coun
ty, the Telegram, says: "the political cal
dron of Platte county is slow to heat
this year." Doubtless it isnt yet at the
boiling point, but the bosses will- find
that the fuel has all been prepared and
kihvdried, even, so that when the proper
time ooaMs for the caldron" to boil, it
wfflbofl pretty quick.
GkskbaIi Simon Camkbon died at .8
o'clock in the evening of Jane 26th. He
was born in Lancaster county, PeniL,
March 8, 1799, therefore at the time of
his death he was the oldest practical
printer, editor and statesman in the
United States.' He had held the poai-
of secretary of war, minister to
, and senator of the United States.
It is stated in the recent news from
Washington that there will be a large
deficit ia the pension fund the present
fiscal year, so much so, that it will be
'injcuinsnrj- in a short time to stop pay
ments at most of the agencies. The de
ficiency is estimated at toast $8,000,000
in the accounting year, which ends June
Tn grand jury sitting in the case of
Dr. Cronin's murder returned an indict
ment, on the 29th ult against John
Kuaze and others. The return of an
indictment against Kunze for murder
was a surprise to the public as he had
sever been arrested, although it is be
lieved he was the man who oalled for
Dr. Grbnin and took him away the night
he was murdered.

The JotBKAi. hopes that your enjoy

so large a place as some others, but hu
maa hearts here are jast as big as any
whare, and we assure you that the peo
ple are vary glad to see you, and want
yoa to come again whenever you can.
Tax organ aaya: "Democrats of Platte
county can aweep the board this year if
they nuke the proper effort" Jast what
"the proper effort" is the Telegram does
act saggest but we -suppose the first
step the ergaa would advise is to "get
, together," the N. Y. Sun's advice in
asrirmsl polities. Some facetious parti
san quoting Dana, at the same time drew
a picture of the famous editor, with a
bowie-knife sticking out of his boots,
and that's a good deal the way with the
Oolumbas orgaa of the democracy
"get together," and yet a very long
-bowie-knife in sight for the Kehoe wing
of the party.
Wx are glad to aee that one of the
county papers has come out and made it
public that "our own" J. C. Caldwell ia
a caaflywi for sheriff; we aee no reason
why he should not be elected. At the
last county election he was a candidate,
bat wham they wanted another he grace
fully stepped down and accepted the sp
at office of county coroner, and
just as hard for the
of the deaaocratic party as he would had
ha leeeiverl the office he was working for.
There is none of the "kicker" about
"Curley" .So aaya the Humphrey Dem
ocrat Mr. Caldwell is a good man, but
it looks to, aa. outsider aa though the
besses are not in favor of him for sheriff

"Wa understand," says the Organ,
"that J. C. Caldwell is being put forward
by his friends in the north part of the
county for sheriff. There are plenty of
aspirants for that position this year, ac
cording to reporta.' There ia no grain
of comfort in this cold-blooded an
nouncement to allay the pain of former
contests. Not even the salve of forget
falneas is invoked, because the last sent
ence is a direct reminder of methods be
fore applied to defeat Mr. Caldwell's
nomination. The bosses will find, as in
several campaigns recently, ihat they
are no longer dictators in Platte county
politics, not even in their own party.
The faithful lieutenants, the township
workers, the private soldiers, the men
who do the voting are not all of them
"like dumb, driven cattle" any more.
They have seen too plainly the utter
selfiehnees of the bosses, and in several
recent campaigns have resented it; they
will do it again if the old methods are
applied. Tn Jomuuxfe advice in sev
eral campaigns was unheeded, and we
here and now tell the bosses they must
give the boys something new in the line
of strategy, or they will be literally eat
upon and squelched. Tour tendency is
toward aristocracy, exclusivenesB; this
will not do. You must cultivate the op
posite virtue, assume it, in fact, if you
have it not The voters of Platte, under
township organization, have become in
quirers, seekers after knowledge; they
ask questions, all of them interesting,
aome of them very important These
questions have not all been answered
satisfactorily, and Boss Tweed's sneer of
"What are you going to do about it?" ia
felt to be the most judicious thing to
nay, at the present moment A thought
ful consideration of that boss's end may
suggest that "it is along lane that has
no turn." Discretion will be the better,
part of valor, by several points, this
campaign the greater the discretion
shown, the greater the valor will be.
There are elements in your party that
you cannot longer wheedle; you have
tried bull-dozing and failed, and it lis
evident by what indications are plainly
in view, that you will try this method
again, and be defeated. Unless you put
your wits to work, devise something new.
and get out of the old rut you will
again fall into the ditch.
Omaha and Nebraska have transplant

surveys made for these works, which are
to be built and operated under state

The time required in order to complete

Many of the maidens are charmingly
pretty, many of the boys manly, and aU
of them are exceedingly well-behaved
and eager to learn. To a student of hu
man nature it certainly looks as if these
Indian industrial schools were destined
to solve the vexed Indian problem for
ever. Indians can be civilized. They
can be taught our ways, and it is plain
that they can be eo enlightened as to
become noble and intelligent men and
women. Let the cynical but visit this
school and they will be eooffers no long
er. The school is maintained by an
annual appropriation of $30,000 and
about $150,000 have already been invest
ed in it Two hundred and amy acres
of the land belonging to the school are
under cultivation. An orchard, consist,
ingof 3,600 trees, being one of tbemost
prominent landscape features. AU thai
land is cultivated by the Indian stu
dents, and upon it is raised nearly every
thing that is required in the shape of
food and provisions. Superintendent
Backus is the right man in the right
place. His heart is in his work. He is
humane, watchful, interested. He ie
liked by the pupils and respected, by his
corps of sssktants. To conduct prop
erly such a aohool as this requires a
peculiarly kind, patient tactful, yet firm
and resolute character. Mr. Backus
posewa these Qualifications. He ie
also fortunate in having able and con
scientious assistants. The pupils are
enoouraged in every direction. They
ban their duties, their pastimes, and
their chosen entertainments. There is
an expert Indian bell club, an exoeUent
bran band, a printing office and aohool

to render the condition of then dusky
wards of the government pleasant ana

are wonderfully appreciative. A visit to
this school was, to the writer, a much
needed lesson, and we came away with a
higher and far different opinion of In
