THE distrust of the South , shown
by emigrants and capitalists is
beeing freely brought out by the cen-
BUI. Georgia and Texas are the only
states under Confederate rule which
appreciable gain in
population or industries. Th politi
cal intolerance and financial dis
honesty which has marked the his
tory of Democratic administration in
these states south of Mnson and
Diron's line give the lie to the hypo-
crital professions of the democracy.
AND now the Indiana democracy are
fighting over what might hive been in
Cincinnati. The Indianapolis Jour
nal claims to have good authority for
the statement that there was a period
of 12 hours In the Cincinnati conven
tion when the lion. Joseph E Mc
Donald , of Indiana , could have been
nominated for president if the IJen-
driclts men had withdrawn their op
position , but that it was necessary to
the interests of "the favorite son"
that McDonald should be slaughtered.
Ay exchange quotes the following
touching little tale relative to the conja
ncction of the late Samuel J. Tilden
with the democratic nomination for
the presidency : "Jim , " said his fond
mother , "aren't you going to marry
that girl that you've been keeping com
pany with so long ? " "No , " replied
Jim , in pensive tones , while his brow
slowly corrugated , "I am not. " "Why
not ? " inquired hi maternal. "Well ,
ma , you see , it's just here , " explained
Jim ; "I proposed to Rachel Jane , and
elitj asked mo to excuse her , and I was
d-trned fool enough to do it. "
GENERAL SUEKMAN positive'-
fnaes to deny that Hancock , in 187G ,
d > d not openly announce his intention
of obeying Mr. Tilden's orders if he
took the oath of office. Gen. Han
cock's sold claim to the presidency so
far , at advanced by his party , rests on
his loyalty to the government which
educated and supported him for being
loyal. His open announcement of
disloyal intentions in the presidential
embroglio of ' 70 will not help his can
TIIE tremendous hurrah with which *

of ( icnernHJanceck js already beginer
ning to gurgle in their throats. The
party organs are commencing to ex
plain that victory is not gained by
cheers before the battle or by under-
cjtlmating the opposing forcec. Just
at prcsonf the condition of the de
mocracy in Now York is well worth nl
thn attention of that party. The
stita atylirgo positively refuaea to 011-
thuse over the Cincinnati nomination ,
and the various democratic factious in
the city are too
busily engaged in a

necessary attention tj campaign

Those of the republican party who
are disposed to "be faint hearted thus lish
early in the campaign , will do well to
remember that for sixteen years pa t no
o-ory presidential contest has been ers
o.Mned with air-rending democratic
houtc of victory. When George B.
McOIellan was nominated in 1864 , the
sh juts were loud and long. The nom-1 iill
initioii of Sayrsour in 'C8 was a paral tute
lel caie with apa'ellel result. Horace
Greeley died of dicapptinted expecta
tions raised by the democratic hur A. ife
rahs at the opening of the campaign. (
It is one thing to win a battle on paper first
hat another thing to conquer at the
billot-box. The leaders of the dem- , ,
ocracy are beginning to see .that the ' lican
coining'campaign will by no moans be from
s waltc-orer , and" from present indica
tions before tha contest -is over they
be brought to a still greater re *

TBE S5.000 RIP-RAP JOB.
The flimsey pretext nnder which a
majr-rity of our city council voted a
resolution instructing the city a'tor-
ney to confess judgment on a bo us
claim of the Union Pacific for S5000
and $1000 interest , for rip-rapping the
Missouri river front is indefensible.
Every councilman before entering
upon the duties of his office takes the
solemn oath that he will support the
constitution of this state and live up
to its laws. The constitution of Ne
braska , article twelve section two ,
reads as follows :
"No city , county town , precinct ,
municipality , or other sub-division of
the state , shall ever make donation to
any railroad 'or other works of inter
nal improvement , unless a proposition
BO to do shall have been Grst submit
ted to the qualified electors thereof at
an clect'on by au'hority of law. "
Now the propisition to donate § 5000
or any other sum to the Union Pacific
railroad for improving the river front
ha neverbeen submitted to the electors
of this city , hence every councilman
who voted to instruct die city attorney -
ney to confess judgment tor § 5000
and interest , claimed by the Union
Pacific , violated his oath of oilice.
Nut only was this donation voted in
violation of the plain letter of the
constitution , but also in violation of
tho'fundamental law under which the
city council exercises authority. The
city charter expressly provides that
all public improvements , such as I
paving , niacadcniizin.5 , grading , &c. ,
shall bo let to the lowest reiponsiblo
bidder. The rip-rapping of the Miss -
a niri river front is a public improve
ment i , which could ouly bo lawfully .
uudeitaken by the city through aeon-
tract ; with the lowest responsible bid
der. No attempt was m&de to let the
work , but t' o 5,000 which the connw
cil voted to the Union Pacific is in
the nature of a donation expressly
prohibited by the constitution aud
The fact tl-at this ? 5000 claim" is
illegal ' ' , wm well known to the Union
Pacific attorneys. They knew that
Ihe city attorns/ would beat them In
courts notwithstanding the fact that
this fraudulent claim had been en
dorsed List winter by the city council.
They knew General Alaudorsoii never
would stultify himself by confessing
judgment , -hence the U. P. employes
in the city council were directed to
pull through a resolution instructing
General Manderson to confess judge
ment on this lawless claim. .Will
. -'iral Manderaon obey this insnriic-
horn. v. . . . . _ , J
" afford to stultify him

j r i i - t
and fraudulent cLumf.
What was John M. Thurstou doing
down in' Lincoln all the winter ? What ,
were the- other railway attorneys doing
there ? Bee.
We don't know about Thurston , bu
the attorneys for the other roads were
there , partly for the purpose of secur
ing to the Buriington & Missouri and
Sioux City roads the privilege of charting - '
ing as much for the ferriage of passpn
Hers and freight at Plattsmouth and
Blair as is charged for bridge tolls a
this point. And now will Mr. Rose
water inform iu what ho WHS doing
( Ji.it time to prevent the legalizing o
thuso "infamous" ferriage charges ?
Mr. Rosewuter was not aware tip to
this date that any special law authoring ! /
ing the Plattemouth aud Blair ferries
tuai charge fifty cents per passenger
and ten dollars per car lear
for ferriage across the Missouri had
ever passed the legislature. If such a
la was sin jggled through it does not
in our approval and wo don't hesi
tate to denounce it as an outrageous
imposition , for which , the last legisla
turo deserves to be forever execrated.
But what' justification does that
act furnish for the highway robbery
atVi the Union Pacific toll gate ?
Why should the Union Pacific endow
ed with princley subsidies built with
the people's money , bo allowed to op
press the people under cover of i
charter ? . Will the Republican explait
toN thUjcommunity and the producers o )
Nebraska , why one dollar is chargi-c
for every ton of coal transferred at
0.bi and why the price of fifty
bushels of corn is confiscated for
transferring throe hundred bushels ot | ,
corn accross the Missouri.
Tbe Out Look In Indiana.
We are in receipt of numerous in
quirics from various parts of the coun
try , in regard to the political situation
here aud jrobitblo outcome ot the
campaign , aud in reply thereto will
make a general statement. We have
already said that the chances of re
public > ui success in Indiana are bet
ter this yc r than they have boon
for several years. There are various
reasons for this. The party ia
entirely harmonious and free from the
sliuhU'st disaffection of any kind ,
either general or local. The national
and state tickets give unbounded sat
isfaction. The greenback party is not
nearly to strong as it was two years
ago. Thou it cast nearly -10,000 votes.
This year it will not cast half that
number. The republican party will
benutit very materially by this change.
The national democratic ticket is not
popular in the stato. The leadrri1 , a
the politicians , and the press may
say what they please ; wo say
the national democratic ticket is not
popular in Indiana , and time and the
vote will prove it. The moss-back
democrats , auti-war and anti draft
men , and original cjpperheads , do not
like Hancock. Hundreds of them
not vote for him any more than
they would for Greeley. Mr. Eng
dots not strengthen the ticket in
this state a particle. He is personally
unpopular , end hii candidhcy creates
euthueiasui , either among the lead
or the rank and tile. Whatever ap
poaranceof euthu-iasm for the ticket
there may be is artificial and superfi-
. It does not extend to the demo
cratic masses , and will not list. It
ill never reach the underlying sub
stratum of Bourbon voters who consti
the backbone of the'party. The
republican campaign will be vigorous , X )
aggressive and thorough. The Hon.
G Purter , candidate for governor ,
not only one of the best speakers in
his or any other state , but he is a
class " .mixer" aud election-
cerer. Ho will make a splen
campaign -and will bsably assisted
the other candidates on the repub
* ticket and by popular speakers
outside the state. In short , no
effort will be spared on the part of the tbe
republicans to utilize the favorable con .
ditions which undoubtedly exists for day
redeeming the state from democratic

SANTA CLAUS FOUND.
Greatest Discovery of the Age.
Wonuvrful discoveries In tbe world have been made
Among other things where Santa Claua stayed ,
Children oft ask If he makes goods or not ,
If really he lives in a mountain of snow.
Last year an excursion sailed clear to the Pol *
And suddenly dropped into what seemed like thole
Where wonder of wonders they found a ncwland ,
tVTiile fairy-like beings appeared on each hand.
There were mountains like ours , with more
beautiful green ,
And far brighter ikies than ever were seen ,
Birds with tbe hues of a rainbow were found ,
While flowers of exqutilte fragrance were grow
Not long were they left to wonder In dotibr ,
A being soon came they had heard much about ,
Twas Santa Clans' self nnd this they all say ,
Bel eked like the picture f tsee every day
He drove up a team that looked very queer ,
'Twas a team f grasshoppers instead of reindeer ,
He rode In a shell Instead of a fcleizh ,
But he took them on to d and drove them
He showed them all over his wonderful realm ,
And factories making goods for women and men.
Furriers were working on hats great and small ,
To Bonce's they said they were sending them all.
Kris Klngle , the Glove Maker , told them at once ,
All our Gloves we are sending to liunce ,
Santa showed them suspenders and many things
Saying I also took these to friend Bunco's store.
Santa Claus then whispered a secret he'd tell ,
In Omaha every one knew Bnnce well ,
He therefore should send his goods to his care ,
Knowing his friends will get their full share.
Now remember ye dwellers in Omaha town ,
AH who want presents to Fnnce's go round.
For shirts , collars , or gloves great and small ,
Send your sister or annt one and all.
