Tuesday while returning home from

Ed. Journal: To prevent misunder
standings as to my position relative to
education, I would say that I believe
the state has the right, and that it is its
duty to see to it that each child learns
tho English language and is taught the
common branches of education. To
effect this, it would bo necessary to
enact a law, about as follows: Parents
and guardians to be required to send
their children or wards to a public, pri
vate or parochial school, where the
English language, at least, and said
common branches of education are
taught, from the time of their arrival at
school age to their fourteenth year, and
for a stated time, say at least three
months, each year. Directors or teach
ers of private or parochial schools to be
required to furnish a list of their pupils,
and a report of their schools (religion
and foreign languages excepted), to the
school boards of the respective districts
of which such pupils are resideuts, to
enable said school boards to ascertain
what children do not receive any educa
tion whatever. Persons refusing to
comply with the above should bo amen
able to the law. H. T. Spoebbt.
Three men, giving their names as

and were taken, 6ome time last week
from his late residence, on Olive
street. There were four overcoats worth

While in Madison last Wednesday
on business we called upon our editorial
brethren of the Chronicle and the Re
porter, both of whom have neat, tidy
offices and seem to be keeping in line
with the progress of their thrifty little
city. While thero we met with old ac
quaintances and friends in the persons
of Rev. St. Clair and family; Mr. Whit
wam, president of tho North Nebraska
Normal college; A. C. Tyrrell, clerk of
tho district court, who in the 70's, was a
valued contributor to The Joubxal;
James Stewart, the banker; Mr. and Mrs.
J. A. Snow; John Horst and W. C. Elley.
It was an unexpected pleasure to meet
Mrs. E. H. Jenkins of Kalamazoo, and
all the family news that could possibly
be crowded into a half-hour's talk was
the consequence. Madison, like most
Nebraska towns, is growing on the solid
basis of steady prosperity. For a little
while past there has been fresh talk of
changing tho county-seat to Norfolk,
but we understood that the second
potition has been withdrawn, and that
the matter will again be dropped, possi
bly, now, for an indefinitely long period.
Madison is well situated for business,
drawing tribute from three counties,
and considerable tribute it is.

A vote for Cookingham for county
attorney is a ballot cast for a man who
has some of the "milk of human kind
ness" in his make-up. There is a class
of attorneys that may fitly be termed
human jackals; we are glad to be able
to say that neither one of the gentlemen
named as candidates for this office, is
of that class. Both Mr. Albert and Mr.
Gondring have served as county attor
neys of old Platte, and both have filled
tho meassure of expectation of their
friends. Mr. Cookingham would doubt
less do the same, and there is no reason
why he should not.

At Fitzpatrick's hall Friday evening
last there was a gathering expecting to
hear a three-sided discussion of political
platforms, by C. A. Brindley, William
O'Brien and A. J. Wilcox, representing
respectively, the independents, demo
crats and republicans. Mr. O'Brien tells
us that he never agreed to speak on the
occasion, and therefore that any thought

Mr. Wilcox showed, on behalf of the
republicans, that tho policy of a protec-
tive tariff originated with Madison, was
supported by and approved by Washing
ton," and that no party during all our
history up to the present campaign had
favored absolute free trade. The near
est approach'to it was a tariff for revenue
only. Democrats in this campaign be
lieve that greatly reducing tho tariff
will keep down tho revenue, and that
free competition from other countries
will keep down prices. Republicans
believe that a tariff should be so adjust
ed as to protect our laborers engaged in
manufacture, and that in thus doing,
not only will tho revenue bo lessened,
but prices will be adjusted on the sound
basis of competition among our own
manufacturers. There nro numerous in
stances of how this has worked, in such
articles as wire nails, railroad iron, barb
wiro, salt, &c. In 1880, the price of wire
nails imported was 10 cents a pound,
barbed wire was C cents, railroad iron
S132 a ton. Now you know how the
price has been greatly reduced. Salt
was S2.40 a barrel, now 81.40. Mr. Ger
ing in his speech the other night had
said that the reason these articles are so
cheap is because tho consumer does not
pay the duty. The consumer does not
pay tho duty because none are imported,
and this is one of the very effects aimed
at by the republican party tho develop
ment of the natural resources of our own
country, giving ns diversified industries,
nlentv of work for everybody, opportu
nities for all capacities, and good living
wages for every man who works.
In answer to the question why ho was
a republican, Mr. Wilcox said ho believed
tho principles of the party were better
adapted than those of any other to
secure beneficial results to the pooplo of
this country; that party has given us
tho best financial system tho country
has ever had; through its efforts and
against the votes of democratic congress
men timo and again, wo have tho home
stead law, which has done such a world
of good: tho republican party deals
justly with tho heroes who helped to
save the flag of the country, and keep it
from being trampled undor foot by its
enemies; last, but not least, tho repub
lican party by its policy of reciprocity
has eo enlarged our markets that tho
balance of trade is now in our favor to
the tuno of $44,000,000, rather than
against us, which was the case undor
Tho silver question was discussed,
showing how free and unlimited coinage
would put money belonging to the peo
ple at large into the pockets of mine
owners, without any benefit to mine
workers. Tho sub-treasury scheme was also set
forth and compared with the Minneapo
lis elevator schomo by which its pro
jectors reaped tho profit accruing over
the amount advanced on the grain when
it was stored.
The stato bank issuo plank of tho
democracy was only equaled in mischief
by the sub-treasury scheme of tho in
dependents. Mr. Brindley followed stating tho
position of tho independents on the rail
road question, and contending that if
the government would construct and
operate a road from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, in a short timo all other roads
would adopt government rates or else
seek to transfer ownership to the gov
He also advocated the policy of issu
ing paper money direct to tho people
without tho intervention of the national
Mr. Wilcox made brief reply, claiming
that tho conditions under which tho
national banks labor aro not all rose
colored by any means, and that, so far
as tho government ownership and opera
tion of railroads is concerned, tho extra
army of office holders thus entering the
arena of politics could bo made bucIi an
organized body as that any political
party in power, could scarcely be ousted,
however strong tho necessity for so
ciomg might be.
An independent meeting was held at
Fitzpatrick's hall Monday evening.
Thero were about thirty present, all
told, including republicans and demo
crats. Tho weather was inclement,
there was no fire in tho hall, and it was
rather rough, up-hill sledding for tho
speakers, who, nevertheless, behaved
themselves very nicely, and interested
Mr. Albert, candidate for county at
torney, spoke first, and we aro sorry that
wo have not space for the speeches in
Ho contended himself with a fow re
marks on tho money question, while Mr.
Jewell, tho candidato for stato senator,
spoke at length on the principles of tho
independents concerning transportation,
land and monoy.
He also touched upon his sayings as
to the bounty on beet sugar and on the
raising of sugar beets, declaring that ho
was opposed to any bounties.
. He undertook to explain his employ
ment of Russians while managing his
330 acres for tho Norfolk factory.
Ho then paid his respects to J. E.
North, the democratic candidate for sen
ator, denying that ho had ever called
Mr. North a corporation tool or a rail
road man. Ho had said that North rode
on a pass and declared: "I am hero to
prove tho assertion." Ho then referred
to North's saying that ho hadn't been in
the employ of tho railroad since about
ten years ago.whon he sold their lands. He
didn't see how this could well be, when
in the same paper containing Mr. North's
letter there was an advertisement of
Speico & North, railroad lands for sale.
"If North is not an employee," said
Jewell, "ho is not entitled to a pass, but
ho does ride on a pass, and I ride on a
He next took up tho report that ho had
pledged himself and perjured himself.
We snpposo he had reference to a report
that he had "made his peace with the
railroads, &c" in speaking of which he
used some strong language as to what
should be done with him, provided he
betrayed his trust. We have not space
to further follow his remarks, and, not
withstanding that Mr. J. seems a very
plausible, smooth talker, there is all the
greater reason for voting for Mr. Oleson
F. 31. Cookingham,
The republican nominee for county at

The Democracy aud the Independents Try
ing to 3Iake n "Deal."
The domocracy of Nebraska has been
used to making all kinds of shifts to put
themselves in line with their national
party. They have swallowed them
selves, so to speak, in times gone by, but
now they are expected to do a deed even
more difficult than that. Evidently
thoso of the stato committee
who met last Thursday night at Omaha
were in considerable of a quandary. Tho
question is: "How can we, as demo
crats, fuse with tho populists by voting
their electoral ticket, and yet keep our
state, congressional and local tickets in
tho field without injury?" They seem
ingly have concluded that they can do
this, by an understanding among the
knowing ones to quietly vote for the
Weaver electors. The Bee of Friday
last gives a three-column account of the
talk of the committee, and it will be
found interesting to party workers to
know that the chairman and secretary
of the people's party stato central com
mittee, also General Van Wyck were
present in the city to consult with the
Fusion on the state ticket was the
canso of any number of stormy inter
views. Ono proposition was for Van
Wyck to withdraw from tho canvass and
agree to take the support of both par
ties for the U. S. senate, but whether
the General was afraid the democracy
wouldn't "tote fair," or whether a regard
for Bryan for that office was in the way,
wo have not been able to learn.
One member said that his folk3 were
working for their local ticket and con
gressman, and ho felt satisfied that if
the party tried to do any funny business
they would lose everything. Another
thought it would do no good if they
throw the entire democratic vote to
Weaver, "for," he said, "there ar nnv
God's quantity of independents who are
going to vote for Harrison electors."
Still another was inclined to think that
democratic votes could not be thrown
to Weaver, without causing a goodly
number to go to Van Wyck.
Closing these remarks, the Journal
would say that it now looks as though
all this work on the part of the demo
crats and independents in Nebraska will
go for naught, and why should it not?

Henry T. Spoerry,
Republican candidate for representative
of Platte county, was born Jan. 31st,
1830. in canton Zurich, Switzerland, and
he ha3 tho chief, good characteristics of
his countrymen, a love of liberty, a
determination to see equal justice done,
and a tenacity of purpose that holds fa6t
to tho end. Ho landed in New York
city Nov. 8th, 'Jl, and at that time un
derstood four languages, Gorman,
French, Latin and Greek. He lived in
Wisconsin, in different parts, until the
fall of 1801, when he enlisted in the Sec
ond Wise. Vol. Infantry, second Co. K,
serving with his regiment through all
the battles of the Potomac, up to June
30, 1864, when he was mustered out by
reason of expiration of time of service
of the regiment,
locating at Humphrey, this county,
where he has since resided. On the 1st
day of January, 83, he was married.
The first year and a halt, he worked for
Newoll South in the hardware business;
in the fall of 83 he was elected justice
of the peace, and in the discharge of tho
duties of this office he acquired a fond
ness for the study of law, which he then
began to study with Judges Bowman
and Sullivan. His law practice bogau

board of trustees of the village of Hum

board, and has always taken a lively
interest in public matters, so that he
has become well posted in municipal
and county affairs, and pledges himself
to the faithful and impartial conduct of
the office in the interest of tax-payers.
"I have just recovered from n sec
ond attack of the grip this year," says
Mr. James O. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days, against ten days for the first at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy, as I
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
caso I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "

first symptom is hoarseness; then the

culiar rough cough is developed, which
1b followed by the croup. The time to
