congratulate the country upon the con

We most heartily indorse the action of
the republican congress in passing the
disability jH'ii.sion bill and a republican
president who approved the same and
regard it as an act of justice too long
delayed because of the opposition to all
just pension legislation by a democratic
congress; yet wo do not regard it as the
full recognition of the great debt of ob
ligation which the government and the
people owe to those heroic men by rea
son of whoso sacrifice and devotion the
union was saved and the government
restored. Wo do further repeat our
declaration in favor of just and fair serv
ice pensions graded according to length
of service for every soldier and sailor
who fought in behalf of the union, and
by reason of whose services and devotion
the government now exists.

I. I.. Albert.
The republican and people's independ
ent candidate for county attorney was
Inirn in Clearfield county, Pennsylvania,
His father being engaged in the lum
ber business, this was also the occupa
tion of young Albert until ho was nine
teen years old, sit which time he came
west, attending tho Western college at
Toledo, la., of which his uncle, E. B.
Kephart, was president, and of which he
is a graduate.
Under tho direction of Hon. F. C.
Hormel, a prominent attorney of Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, he studied law, and was
admit texl to practice in Plymouth coun
ty. He practiced in Iowa courts till
18S0, when he came to Albion, Neb.,
where he had an extensive practice until
last fall, when health failed him, and he
spent the winter months on tho Pacific
coast. Early last spring he returned to
Nebraska, and with J. D. Stires, esq.,
opened a law office in this city.
By his acquaintances here Mr. Albert
is regarded as a young man of excep
tionally good ability, a bright lawyer,
and one who will bo a credit to himself
and an honor to tho jiolitieal parties
which have selected him as their candi
date for tho important office of county
Lumpy .law Proven to be a Cont.iirjous
There are people who think it profit
able to keep, to kill and to eat tho flesh
of lumpy jawed cattle. Tho following
paragraph clipped from a Chicago tele
gram of August 15) may bo of some in
terest to those who would thus take
chances on their lives:
"Experiments have just been conclud
ed in this city that will bo of tho great
est importance to tho packing industry
and to veterinarians, many of whom
have hitherto thought that actinomyco
sis, or lumpy jaw, was not a contagious
disease and that the meat of cattle
afliietod by it was not injurious. Mem
bers of tho live stock boards of several
states have superintended tho killing of
a number of cattle ufliicted with lumpy
jaw and eximined the bodies.
A week ago fifty-five were killed and
esterdav thirtv-four more. Tho object
was to ascertain to what extent the dis
easo affected the entire system so as to
make tho meat of such cattle unfit for
food. The result of the examination was
that in alout IK) per cent of tho cases in
vestigated the disease was observed to
have affected the internal organs and
Mr. Armstrong of the United States
bureau of animal industry was
among the distinguished experts
present, Drs. Paquin and Grange, ex
pert microscopists, took a number of
specimens for examination and for ex
periments in inoculation. They expect
to corrolorato what has been said by
German and French scientists -that
lumpy jaw is a contagious disejise."
Once in a while tho opposition do get
up something worthy of a passing
thought, as for instance. The republi
can convention of Douglas county con
cluded to let Mr. Council name the con
gressional delegation, and he left the
matter to John B. Furay, who gathered
his number from all the factions, so that
there might le harmony. Tho Omaha
World-Herald represents Furay, under
the figure of a Dr. and gets up a card
for him as follows -the inter-commingling
of the names E. Rosewater and Paul
Vandevoort (mortal enemies), is a "cau
tion to snakes," and a fine piece of art:

The Fremont Tribune epitomizes as
follows the successful career of Hon. L.
D. Richards, republican candidate for
governor of Nebraska:
A success as a boy soldier.
A success as a farm hand.
A success as a helper on a pile driver.
A success as a homesteader.
A success as a civil engineer.
A success as mayor of Fremont.
A success as chairman of the republi
can state central committee.
Asuccess as an upright, enterprising
And now he will be
A success as governor of Nebraska.
He is made of the heroic clay which
guarantees success in everything he
takes hold of.
The Farmer and the Laborer.
The farmers' alliance of Nebraska has
resolved that ''eight hours make a long
enough day's labor for any class of
workingmen except farm hands." Why
was the discrimination made against
farm hands? Do they not work as hard
as any other class of laborers? Are they
not entitled to the same privileges as
others? Do they not deserve and need
the same opportunities for recreation,
reading and self-improvement? It may
indeed be urged that the exception was
made on the ground of necessity. When
grain is ripe it must be harvested.
When it is in good condition it mu6t be
housed or stacked or it will be ruined by
rain. These works cannot always be
done in time, working eight hours a day.
But similar exigencies arise with man
ufacturers and contractors. It often
becomes impossible for them to keep
their engagements unless their employes
will work more than eight hours a day.
Their threatened losses are as great as
those that would be caused to the farm
er by the destruction of his crops. If
they should pay extra wages for extra
hours beyond eight, why should not the
In tho pleas for shorter hours for labor
nothing has ever been said for the farm
hand. Yet ho is the greatest sufferer of
till. Ho seldom knows intermission of
toil from sunrise till dark. A twelve
hours' working day would be a reliof to
him. and a ten hours' working day a
boon and a joy. Yet nothing is ever
said iu his behalf. Is it because tho
farm hands are not organized, and thus
cannot compel attention and considera
tion by the p6wer of a solid vote?
In tho Nebraska case was the farm
hand discriminated against because the
memlers of the alliance are the ones
that employ him? Can wo believe that
self interest is exerting its baleful influ
ence to so great an extent over the phi
lanthropic and reforming alliance? It
is certainly time that the farm hand
made himself heard in assertion of his
equal rights with other workmen. Den
Probably Fatally Injured.
While a lot of men were selling up a
hay stacker this morning on the Gibson
farm near tho bluffs on the Broad street
road a severe accident befell Castier
Gralier, of this city. When tho stacker
was nearly up it commenced to fall over
and Mr. Graber tried his lest to prevent
it, and did not give up tho task until it
was too late for him to get out of the
way of the falling stacker. The beam
timbers fell upon his shoulders and
crushed him to the ground, striking him
across the shoulders and small of the
neck, where he sustained most of his
injuries. His hands are rendered power
less by the severe crushing of his
muscles. The accident will prove ser
ious if not fatal. Dr. Smith has great
hopes of his recovery, as the man is ro
bust and liable to pull through. The
other men in the field came to the aid
of the injured man as soon as possible
and removed him to his home. Fre
About five hundred of Dodge county's
most prominent republicans (so says the
Flail) forwarded a petition to Mr. Dor
sey, asking him to stand as a candidate
for re-election. His reply is as follows:
Washington, D. C, Aug. 11), 1890.
Arthur Truesdell, E. Shurman and
G. W. Hyatt, committee.
Petitions from so large a number of
influential republicans in Dodge county,
asking me to announce myself a candi
date for re-election affects me most
sensibly. If it is the desire of tho re
publicans of the Third drstrict, assem
bled in convention, that I should con
tinuo my work here, I would accept the
nomination. However, if the party
would bo strengthened by the nomina
tion of somo other man, I will most
williugly and gladly labor for his elec
tion with that of the entire state ticket
Harmony in our ranks is essential, and
no man's ambition or prejudice must be
allowed to stand in the way of success
G. W. E. Dorsey.
Nebraska Out of Debt.
Washington special: The showing
made by tho census rejiort issued by
Superintendent Porter is tho subject of
congratulation on the part of every Ne
braskan who litis seen it. It shows that
Nebraska is absolutely without a debt.
Ten years ago Nebraska had a bonded
debt of STiOO.OOO. Today her Ixinded
debt and floating debt are represented
by blank spaces in the table of indebt
edness with a letter "A," which refers to
a foot note indicating "No debt." Only
one other state in the entire list is in
this happy condition; that one state is
West Virginia. There aro half a dozen
with no bonded debt, but they have
floating bills, and there are several with
no floating debt but with a bonded debt.
But when you combine both these happy
conditions Nebraska and West Virginia
stand alone. Iowa has no lxmded debt,
but her floating debt is 284,823.
Tin: meeting called on Saturday night
by Mr. Richards was to get an expres
sion of the county delegates from this
city as to their position on the contro
versy between himself and Mr. Dorsey.
The delegates were mostly present and
a few who wero not delegates were pres
ent on invitation. It is understood that
under the influence of their chosen lead
er, all expressed themselves as ready for
a fight to prevent Mr. Dorsey from tak
ing the delegation from this county
with three exceptions. It wtis decided,
however, to await the public announce
ment by Mr. Dorsey that he is a candi
date. Then the battle will open all
along the line. Fremont Flail.
Yes, he was Railroad Richards. He
worked on a pile driver in building rail
road bridges and rapidly rose to the po
sition of superintendent of construction
and roadmaster. He was a hard work
ing, reliable and conscientious employe
and his employers were not slow to rec
ognize it But that was twenty years
ago. He is now simply L. D. Richards,
owned and controlled by no influence or
power save a desire on his part to see
that equality and justice are promoted
among all interests and that the greatest
good is done to the largest number. He
will do right as God gives him to see the
right. Fremont Tribune.

The Knox County Democrat says:

Senator Van- Wyck, nominated by
the alliance in this district, was not a
democrat, neither was O. M. Kem, nom
inated in the Third district, a democrat,
so in both these districts tho democrats
had no uso for them. In tho Second
district, however, McKeighan, the alli
ance nominee, is a democrat and that
party proposes to endorse him with a
whoop and a hurrah. This is the ex
tent of tho use tho democratic party has

This is the way another democrat
looks at it: "The Dorsey democrats
along tho U. P. railroad went into the
congressional convention at Columbus
organized to defeat any indorsement of
O. M. Kem, thus, as they thought, to
make machino politics defeat tho people.
But it will result in the reverse. Tho
democrats who were in favor of indorse
ment will vote for Kem just tho same.

opinion that "it was a mistake of the re

against proxies," and the Tribune is
eminently correct. The provy system

representation of political sentiment,
and therefore is recognized by the peo

John Ckaiu suggests a good idea
which we hope will be followed out by
our farmers. It is this: So many of the
farriers in the western part of the state
have lost their corn crops by reason of
the drouth. This is also true of farmers
in other states. Next year seed corn
will bo scarce. Now let our farmers
save all the seed corn they can and le

The Sioux City Journal suggests for

that it is Mr. Dorsey who is making tho

The alliance picked up a democrat for
congress in the Second district. With
characteristic gratitude the democrats

From our regular corresimndent.l
Tho president just now occupies a po
sition that cannot fail to tax the good
sense which he has time after time
shown himself to bo largely endowed
with. It is to him that the rank and
file of tho republican party look for a
settlement of the unfortunate differ
ences of opinion that has arisen among
tho republican senators. Senator Quay
seems determined to get his resolution
confining the legislation of the present
session to the tariff bill; tho appropria
tion bills and bills affecting public
buildings and grounds before the senate.
His resolution when first offered last
week wsis referred to the committee on
rules, as well as an amendment offered
by Senator Hoare to include the federal
election bill in the legislation of the
session. A caucus has since been held;
but nothing was done except to discuss
the situation and by a vote of 18 to 17
refused to endorse Senator Hoar's
Saturday afternoon Senator Quay,
without waiting on the committee on
rules to report, asked unanimous con
sent to offer the same resolution, which
also provides for taking a final vote on
tho tariff bill on August 30, but Senator
Edmunds objected, the matter went
over and Mr. Quay gave notico that he
would this week offer tho same resolu
tion and insist on its consideration. It is
expected that the southern senators will
support Mr. Quay's resolution, in fact it
is charged that it is the result of a bar
gain with them this I do not believe
becauso it will prevent action upon the
federal election bill.
Meanwhile Senator Hoar, who is lead
ing those who favor the passing of both
tariff and federal election bills, is by no
means idle. Telegrams to absent re
publican senators havo been sent urging
them to return at once, and it is not
possible that another caucus will be
held before tho matter is finally settled
and if a full attendance can be secured
it is probablo that Mr. Quay's resolution
may bo defeated, but if he can get it
voted uKn by the senate before the
caucus meets, and the democrats sup
port him, it will be adopted.
Tho Louisiana lottery lobby is solidly
in favor of tho Quay resolution because
it will prevent the passago by the sen
ate of the rigorous anti-lottery bill,
which the house on Saturday took up
and passed; numerous other lobbyists
representing interests that will lie more
or less damaged by legislation, which
was already passed the house, aro add
ing their influence toward getting
the Quay resolution adopted by the
Speaker Reed, while deeply regretting
the turn things have taken in the sen
ate, will do nothing to prolong the ses
sion in order to force the senate to act
on the federal election bill. Ue says
the house has done its duty and if the
senate refuses to do likewise let its
members answer for it to their constitu
ents. The president has so far taken no side
in the dispute though it is pretty well
known thai he favors the federal elec

In a recent article in the Youth's Com
panion, on "how to cure a cold," the
writer advises a hot lemonade to be tak
et at bed time. It is a dangerous treat
ment, especially during the severe cold
weather of the winter months, as it opens
the pores of the skin and leaves the sys
tem in such a condition that another and
much more severe cold is almost certain
to be contracted. Many years constant
use and the experience of thousands of
persons of all ages, has fully demonstrat
ed that there is nothing better for a
severe cold than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It acts in perfect harmony
with nature, relieves the lungs, liquefies
the tough tenacious mucous, making it
easier to expectorate, and restores the
system to a strong and healthy condi
tion. Fifty cent bottles for sale by all
