"EVERYBODY for himsel'.and the ex
devil take the hindmost , " is the th
motto.of . the candidates on the beer
Bourbon legislative ticket. As a
fair illustration , we quote the words
of Saint John Goodrich at Elkhorn , or :
Saturday , which we are assured tic
were substantially as , follows : "I ra <

Jows.on ouritlcket ; " iTam working

KOVT ABOTJI
Very silly and absurd charges aie
trumped up by the Bourbon organ
against Jacob "WeidensaU. We are
assured that many Republicans who
know Mr. W'eidensall Tvill not vote
for him. First , because he procurec
his nomination under false pre
tenses ; second , because Weldensal'
owns a farm in Saunders county
which will eventually be his home ;
and lastly , because he supported
Curry , ( colored ) Republican , againsl
Kimball. white Democrat , for Coun
cilman in the Third Ward. Now
we confess that these are most ter
rible charges against a candidate
who is otherwise universally re
spected for his industry , integrity
and moral worth. It would be
grievous Indeed , if it were true , that
Weldensall procured his nomina
tion under false pretenses. That
allegation is , however , entirely un
founded. Mr. SVeideusall did not
conspire against auybody nor did he
even seek the nomination. In fact
we know that he publicly declared
that he would cheerfully give way
to Air. Lilly or any other mechanic
if the ticket could be strengthened
thereby.
We regret our inability to contra
dict the statement that Mr. Weiden-
sall has invested in some lands out
side of Douglas county. We are
even forced to admit thai Weiden-
sall expects at some future period to
become a farmer , but we'fail to com
prehend why eight years residence
in our midst should not render him
eligible to represent us in the legis
lature. When we reflect that Jacob
Weidensall has knowingly and de
liberately committed the unpardon
able prime of voting for Richard
Cnrry , wo tremble for his fate. This
is indeed an eflfcnso which cannot
well bo palliated by sympathizers
with the White League. Under
these circumstances , nobody will be
surprised if the Herald's many im
aginary Republicans shall vote
Weidensall a monster of iniquity ,
who , to receive his just deserts , will
have to sentenced to forty days
poqn } servitude in the Nebraska leg-
islaturOf
A LOSING GAME.
The attempt to win votes for Mr.
Spaun by circulating Democratic
tickets with the names of St. John
Goodrich omitted , will result in
helping , instead of hurting him.
Fair-minded men do not believe in
these resorts to ohoat the people of
their rightful verdicts. Mr. fcJpaun
Is losing votes every day by that
bogus ticket business , and he de
serves to lose them. Herald.
The attempt to manufacture sen
timent and votes for St. John
Goodrich oy this bogus ticket dodge
is too transparent to deceive any
body. We believe these bogus
tickets were gotten up in the Herald
office for the purpose of injuring Mr.
Spaun with Republicans. Mr.
Spaun Is not a fool , whatever else he
may be , aud nobody but an idiot
would attempt to circulate bogus
tickets in Omaha three days before
the election. If the Democrats
think they can injure Spaun and
save Goodrich by such contemptible
trickery , they are very much mis
taken.
Ag will be seen by our telegraphic
advices from .New Orleans , the
rebel white league element is again
rampant , and may at any moment
precipitate another bloody revolt
As the election approaches it Is be
coming evident that a peaceable
election means a Eepublican vic
tory. This , the .Louisiana cut
throats are determined to prevent
at all hazards. Their defiant and
menacing attitude leaves very little
room * for doubt that they
are prepared to inaugurate
a general onslaught upon
loyal citizens whenever their
blood-thirsty leaders shall give the
signal. Every Democrat is not a
White Leaguer but every White
Leaguer is a Democrat , is a maxim
Jiat applies forcibly to the Louis-
ana outlaws. There is no doubt
Jut the leaders of the White iicague
ire just now looking toward the
Sorth foractive encouragement and
iupport
Does it require a prophet to fore-
iee that a Democratic victory in the
lorthern States in October means a
general outbreak of the White
Jeaguers throughout the Southern
States. Does any true Republican
n ebraska , desire to precipitate
uch a terribje pajarnlty by relaxing
ils wonted vigilance ? Shall jt be
aid of Nebraska Republicans that

In a heated political contest like
that just now in progress in thi
city , it has been verj ifficult to
introduce a subject that requires the
impartial consideration at the hand
of every citizen of Omaha Xo
question that has ever been submit
ted to the decision * o
our people so derectlyj con
cerns the future growth and
prosperity of Omaha as does the
water works problem. A favorable
decision of the proposition to b
voted on to-morrow cannot 'But re
sult in a new era of progress1 * and
material development of our mu
nicipality. The establishment of
water works will furnish
the keystone to a system
of permanent public improvements
without which Omaha must , after
all , remain but a mere-Village No
body can deny that the establish
ment of water-works will facilitate
the introduction of manufacturing
-enterprises , enhance the value o ]
real estate , reduce insurance rates ,
and increase our permanent popu-
tton.
tton.Above
Above all things it will furnish
permanent employment to workingmen -
men , whose prosperity will directly
contribute to the welfare of our re
tail merchants , /and small manufac
turers. A first-class system of wa
ter works will infusevconfidenco in
our stability as a city.
By voting down the water bonds
our citizens will vote to continue
Omaha as n. dull , dilapidated"se <
ond-rate town. By voting for them
they will Infuse life and vigor into
her commercial arteries.
By voting against water bonds
you vote to continue the health-de
stroying , pestilence-breeding cess
pools , misnamed wells , which con
tribute more to fill our graveyards
thanjjo all of our drug stores and
quacks. By voting for the bonds
you will enable the people _ to estab-
Ish cheap baths , and maintain
clean and dustless streets.
But these old fogies and nonresident
dent tax shirkers , declare that
Omaha can't afford water works at
th.ls time. They point at our heavy
taxes and our municipal debt. They
say wo ought to have the money In
he treasury If we want to build
water works. All these picas are
simply preposterous , Omaha
never can build water
works without issuing bonds.
Hhe must incur this debt sooner or
ater , and practical economy would
dictate that we should inaugurate
the work at a time when commerce
s dull , workingmen in want of em-
> loyment and building material can
> e purchased at very low figures./
The report "of one of * the nfost
competent water work engineers in
he country , shows that the cost of
constructing water works with large
eservolrs and all necessary pipes
and attachments , will not exceed
$380,000. This amount it Is pro-
> osed to issue in bonds payable in
ifteen years at. eight per cent. As-
iimlnc. therefore , that one fifteenth
and interest upon the whole , is to
be levied each year to meet the en
tire cost , we have about 555,000 to
pay each year. This , upon an as
sumption that city property will re
main where it is now for fifteen
years , would only be a levy of one-
half per cent , upon property , or five
dollars for every thousand. This is
the worst side of the proposition , for
here no allowance is made for re
duction in the fire department ex
penses , nothing for water rents ,
nothing for increase of value
In property , in fact , It is only an
exhibit of one side exclusively. In
view of these facts , Is there a mer-
jhant who can candidly say that he
ivill not derive more than one half
lercentfromtheincrease of business
esultlng from the labor employed gt gf
ind confidence and vigor imparted t
n our cityIs there a laboring
nan who would not cheerfully pay
S on every thousand he posesses ,
o see laborers thriving by steady
imployment.
Aside from these considerations ,
he money expended for water
forks would form a striking con-
rast with the annual pxpenrtitures

DISTRICT ATTOEHET.
Every citizen of Douglas County
knows W. J. Council , the Republi
can condidate for District Attorney ,
as a young man who has made an
enviable record in the office to
which he was elected two years ago.
He now comes before them for an
endorsement , and we hope that
Douglas County will give him
a rousing majority. Chief Justice
Lake and the entire bar of this city ,
if not of this District , express une
quivocal satisfaction with his servi
ces. The County Treasurer's rec
ords will show that he has
paid In more money to
the school fund for fines col
lected through his energetic labors
than has been drawn by him for his
salary. Having done so well during
his first term , the people haye every
reason to expect that his second
term will prove more successful and
beneficial to his constituency.
THUBSTON.
If ever a talented and industrious
young man deserved popular en
dorsement at the ballot , it la John
M. Thurston. During his five
years residence in Omaha ,
he has by indefategable
application to his professional duties
succeeded in emerging from com
parative obscurity to regoguized
prominence as a leading attorney.
Whether as councilman or city at
torney Judge Thbrston has over dis
charged the trust reposed in him
° vrtth diligence and fidelity. As a
Republican ho has ever been one of
the most energetic and unflinching
workers in behalf of his party. Jfa
man has a better rjght to demand
and expect tl\e undivided support of
Republicans than John M , Thurs
ton. -
THE saving of one-half per cent ,
in insurance rates on account of.vfa-
ter works on two million dollars of
property alone , amounts to $10,000
per annum. Saving in fire depart
ment expenses will be not less than
$5,000 per annum , and therefore cts-
auming that the water rents only pay
running expenses , the city
will save fifteen - thousand
per annum. Without considering
anything by way of increased val
uation , growth of city , and pros
perity of the merchants and the
laboring element , this reduction
alone would leave but $17,000 of an
nual interest to pay for public use ot
water on the streets and fire exting
uishing purposes. In other words ,
a little over one and a half mills on
the dollar , or $1.50 per thousand ,
dollars. What a fearful burden
upon taxpayers !
WHEN citizens of this State are
> aylng from ten to twelve per cent
nterest for the use of money no
sane man , not even a banker , can
deny that It is more economical to
Issue bonds payable in fifteen years
oi eight per cent than to levy upon
citizens who pay from two to four
per Cent higher on money for their
own use.
DOUGLAS COUNTY owes it to
Judge Orounse to glvo him a hand
some majority.

THE AMERICAN DESERT.
Of tbe American Desert
Who has not been told ,
Strewn with-bones of the hunter
In sea-ch alter gold ;
With plains sandy and sterile ,
Where naught ever grew
To cbd.Ien . tne eye
Of the slrauger passing through.
But In process of time
A great change arose ,
Aiirt the deserr now tuds
And blooms like the rose ;
Ami Nebraska the Desert
Takes her place on the scroll
As one of ) he youngest
And best on the roll.
With tbe proudest of statej
fchn now will compare ,
As one plainly ( an sea
By viewing the Fair ;
Th re are works of the artist
From all o'er our wide land ,
Outrlya'led only by bounties
Frt m the ( ireat ( ilrers , Land.
Go , Ti-It that Fair ,
And do so at once ,
Then wbn you Ret through ,

All Hatted should be.
And Bunce has the goads
As al can well s < - .
