is mainly confined to Now York und

not bu again equalled. The construc

A Tompornto Appeal-
NORFOLK , Nob. , August ! 50 ,
To the Editor c ( Tin Bee.
The people of the Third congres
sional district are soon to select a rep
resentative in congress for the coming
two years. BIr. Valentino is a candidate -
date for a third term , and noema to I
have Borne support. A few facts the
republicans of this district should , in
this business , keep in mind. Wo want
a man for whom every republican in
this big Third can vote with enthu
siasm ! ; with an honest conviction in
his ability , integrity and worthiness ,
and with a clear republican conscience.
Although this is n atrong republican
district , yet wo want a man who , by
commanding the confidence of intelli
gent , thinking men , will make it imre
atroni.'Iy ropublictn. Wo want a imn
for our congressman who will repre
sent at the national capital the oner-
fistic , independent , nrogremvo spirit
of the Nooraska people. Mr. V is
not that man. Hia connection with
monopolies his supporters do not at
tempt to deny. Hm relation to them
they dire not define.
If there is ono qualifiCHtion above
others that n congressman ought to
posscoa , it is that ho fllionlil bu under
obligations to no man or combination
of men. A representative in con
gress is the servant of the nation , not
of individuals. He docs not repre
sent the nrato except as a part of the
nation. Private interests , should ,
therefore , always bo cubordinato to
national interests. Taking this
view , Mr. V.'s record is weak. If
his own conscience approves his
record , his conciousneas must inform
him that it is without strong points ;
that it is passive , and not active.
If nominated Mr. Y. will bring disgrace -
grace to republicanism in North Ne
braska. He would bo elected by a
majority unworthy of us. Instead of
strengthening the party , ho would
bring it into disrepute , hence diminish
the majority which is disgrace. There
are not a few republicans , not cranks
nor sorehcada , but intelligent , honest
men who aay they cannot support Mr.
Valentino. There are in this p.trt of
the district many of the came mind ,
who will act according. To aay that
the third district c innot furniah a man
who embodies more ot the republican 01
ism of Lincoln , Simmon and Garfield
than the present incumbent , would bo of
to say what I do not believe. There
are such men and I trust they will bo 11

Tom Hall for Governor.
OMAHA , September 2,1882. howi
the IMHor ol THK U . |
In your lust issue you mention that fla
Tom ( Hall wants n delegation from
Omaha ; aud Douglas county to endorse
him tor governor. Are you really in
earnest about thia matter ? Can Tom .
Hall have the the cheek to come be
fore thia community and aak that we
endorse him for any position ? When [ of
Hall was appointed postmaster of
Omaha , five years ago , ho was bank '
rupt. Ho owed many workingmen
their wages , and wus in debt to
grocers and fihop-lcoepera for food and
raiment. Many of us expected that
ho ' would put aside the surplus earn
ings to pay off laboring men and all
grocers and butchers. What has ho It
done ) Ho hss earned over fifteen
thousand dollars as postmaster , and
iiatoad of ( laying hia honest debts , ho
has equandcrod it in high living , and
wilJ-cat mining speculations
and in running aw mills for the U.
' . Ho has swindled his creditors ,
and oven dead boated men for living
supplies since ho has been postmaster. J <
Poor Auit , who catno to his death a
few weeks ago in the Black Hills , told iily
me last spring that Tom Hull owed
him and ICnuth $30 for meat ho got
three years ago , when ho was drawing
sulary of $3,000 a year.
Joe Hodman claims he has a bill
against him of (270 for groceries
bought wh'lo he waa almost Destitute.
As to the postoffico I hear general
complaints of rnismonsgemmt. I
know Hall has been out of town for
months at a time , traveling in the
cast tor pleasure or out in Montana
sawing logs for the railroad , while the
office wiufshamefully neglected.

ELDORADO , Kas , . August 27.
To the Edltcr of Tilt lies :
I sou in TUB BEB that Nebraska has
plenty of men who are willing to servo
in the various ttati and county offices ,
so that it sooins useless for Kansas to
transport any of her 1,000 disap
pointed candidates for office to your
stato. Hero in Butler county a norni
dation for ofllco in the republican
party is equivalent to an election ,
lioncj there is no time in the year
that there io a lack of self-sacrificing ,
willing , anxious candidates to servo
the dear pcoplo in oJlica. All the
year round there ia a hordp of thoao
tellov.E who never cciiso to importune
the people for their suffrage.
A year ago aud less , there were
quito a number of Farmers' alliances
in this ( But lor ) county , and for a
while they bid fair to live and become
useful in checking extravagance and
corruption at homo at least ; but when
the party lines were drawn they scampered -
pored for thnir own camps , and now
seem satisfied with men who have be
trayed them before.
Right hero I am induced to nay that
it ia unfortunate for the people that
they have not got a newspaper like
Tm : BKK to awaken a lively intoroct
among them und champion thoircnuao
in a straightforward , fearlcns manner ,
regardless of party lines or party
fealty . ono that would voice the wants
of the pooolo in clear , unmistakable
l.innuago , und strike hard blows where
hard : blows are needed , regardless of
consequences , or who it would pleivsc
or offend. Wo have too ma y news
papers that cl.iim tobaanti-nunopoly ,
but through ignorance , cowardice ,
or some other wcakncso equally as
harmful and shameful they soon tall
far beneath their 'claims. Ono week
they are for the pcoplo and ogainat
monopolies and all their abuses , and
then for the next two weeks , under
the withering frown of political
bosses nnd railroad officials , they bow
low and as gracefully as they can take
back or explain away the charges
made. Then to cone al their short
comings they throw the pcoplo a bone
by tolling them "this is a glorious
country , its inhabitants are prosperous
and then-fore ought to bo happy and
contented and not grumble at the
r.iilrcal companyioa. " What wo want
is moro papers like THE BEK that has
the coura o and ability to show the
inner workings , the cunning .devices ,
und shrewd villianics that are prac
tised upon the people , under the sanc
tion and in the name of law by those
giint monopolies and corporations
which the paoplo and government hai
lifted into power by voluntary dona
tions of land , money and bonds.
