Tin : Honorable. Peter Schwonk was
bound to gut in a resolution in the Co
lumbus convention endorsing the bril
liant public career of E. K. Valentino.
There is some gratitude in Peter. Ho
has not forgotten his master.
POLK oounty promises to give Mr.
Laird a majority of 500 , and Adams
1,000. This ought bo done easily
enough. lla&tlnya Quzcttc-Journal.
If nobody runs against Laird ho can
probably got the above votes in Polk and
Adams counties.
AMONQ the assets of Jamoa D. Fishtho
bankrupt president of the Marino bank
of Now York , are forty shares of Kooly
motor stock. If that is the kind of stock
Mr. Fish wus speculating in his opera

IT only costs ton cents to send a ten-
word message from St. Louis to Chicago.
This is cheaper than writing , and the
wires are kept rod hot with commercial
letters. The rate between Omaha and
Council Blulla , a distance of loss than
four miles , is twenty-five coutn.
It was within the power of the republi
can party to place in nomination candi
dates whoso election by from 3,000to 10-
' 000 majority In each of the throe con
gressional districts would bo an assured
fact. The very narrow margin by which
the present delegation escaped defeat two
years ago In the state that gave Garfield -
field 28,000 majority , was a popular
protest that should have boon hooded
in the Ffrst and Second districts as
it has boon in the Third district.
That party succcas is seriously imperilled
in the renouiinatioii of Wuuvor and
Liird will hardly bo denied by any well-
informed person however much ho maybe
bo attached to either of these candidates.
If defeat docs come , as it almost surely
will , in onu or both of these districts if
men of character , ability and Integrity
are nominated by the opposition the
blame cannot justly bo laid at our door.
Son p. very important changes must ho
made in our city oharto r and in the rev
enue laws of the state by the next legis-
jlaturo respecting property nsoasmonta ,
taxation , rovouuo collections , and sala
ries of marshal , mayor , clerk and other
officials. Would it not bo timely for the
city authorities to take action toward a
thorough inquiry into the wants of the
city and a discussion of the measures
which it is essential to have incorporated
into our laws next winter. It has boon
customary to wait until after the election
and of ton to within a few days of the
Hessian and then wo usualy got an ill-di-
gestod and hastily compounded sot of
bills , upon which oven the members from
this county disagree. The result donor-
ally is a not of cr zy-quilt amendments ,
which , like the celebrated viaduct bill ,
have to bo killed of by the courts in or
der to prevent disaster and confusion in
municipal affairs. The proper time
for stating our wants to the delegation
from Douglas county is before they are
elected , or for that matter before they
are nominated. Lot every candidate
understand what is expected of him. If
ho ( Jiisenta and proposes to represent
his own sweet will rather than the wish-
ca of the community let him stay at

TUB board of public lands nnd build
ings still preserve a sepulchral silcnc
about these school land frauds. Is th
board paralized by the magnitude of th
robbery or the gravity of the accusation
Dare they continue to ignore the almos
universal demands of the press for an explanation
planation ?
To aid thorn from their prostration , wo
propose a few simple questions , oasil ;
answered , as affecting the question o
their guilt or Innocence.
First , For what purpose did the general
ral government make the generous do
nation of the 10th and < ' ! Gth sections to
this state ?
Second , Why did the state provide
that the lands thus donated shquld not bo
sold for loss than seven dollars per acre
Third , Why did the state provide for
the leasing of lands when they could nebo
bo sold for that price ) To make thi
question easy we further ask was it note
to obtain some revenue from the same ; to
obtain a fair interest or a fair price. How
could revenue bo obtained from a nomi
nal valuation ? If it was desirable to
lease the lands to obtain moro populatioi
why did not the board lease to nctua
settlers only ?
DOOB the Lincoln ring Icaso at in
creased valuation to actual settlers ? Have
not the board as much business
capacity and tact to Icaso to in
dividimls as the Lincoln ring particularly
when the Lincoln ring h composed in
part of clerks and subordinates of the
state board , and who arojprcsumcd not to
bo of so largo statue as tha mombora ol
the board.
Fourth. How many acres of land have
boon leased by the present board ? In
what counties\ \ located ? At what ap
praised value ?
Fifth , What clerks in the different
state nflicoa at Lincoln , have boon par
ties to or interested in said leases J
An immediate answer is desired. The
questions are simple , and lot the answers
bo plain and unequivocal. The people de
mand it , republicans demand it boforotho [
assembling of the ntato convention , so
that in case the answers are not satisfac
tory , they may nominate men who will
save what has not already boon stolen
from the school lands , and , if possible ,
rescue from the hands of the spoilers
these already stolen , and take the necessary
sary steps to bring to justice these who
may have bcon engaged in conspiracy
and robbery.
DOWNS , KAS. , Aug. , 19 , 188-1.
Kditor of Tin : BKI : .
1. Does the ruling of the board of pub
lie lands in Nebraska apply to all school
lands , or only to the school "lands in
Keith county ; in other words , will these
who huvo leases dated in 1880 have to
obtain now ones ?
2. Did the now homestead law repeal
lug the pre-emption and timber culture
act pass the senate , or is the old law still
in force. A. M. JIou.i.NO.
1. The recent ruling of the state
board of public lands compelling the return
turn of the leases of school lauds inKoith
county , to bo substituted by now leases ,
applies only to Keith county. This was
owing to on exposure of the fact that the
school lands in that county had boon
fraudulently disposed of. They were ap
praised at a nominal sum their value
being put at only a few cents an aero
whereas they are worth from § ! l to $7
, ior aero. They were not advertised and
the leases were given in a secret manner
nor ton syndicate of land sharks. The
whole thing was a fraud from beginning
, o end. This is acknowledged by the
board by its act of calling in the leases.
But Keith county ia not the only county
in which our school lands have boon fraud
ulently given away to speculators and
land-grabbers. It is the opinion of the
BKK , however , that leases dated in 1880 ,
will not have to bo replaced by now ones ,
unless procured by fraudulent appraise-
" . Thobillto repeal the pro-omption and
.imbor culture laws was passed by the
louse of representatives by a vote of 1-1'J
.o 40. It had not been actcdonbythoson-
ate before congress adjourned , and is
therefore "still "ponding , licnco the pre
emption and timber culture laws remain
n full force. That they were not re-
icalod was an outrage , because under
hose laws gigantic frauds have baon per-
totratud by land-grabbers , who have boon
enabled to rob the public domain of mil-
ions of acres. The timber culture law
especially was gotten up by and for the
solo benefit of land sharks , and they are
still taking advantage of its provisions.
A now departure In Nebraska politics
lias boon iuauguratcdby GovernorDawos.
When the Saline county republican con
vention mot two wooka aoo ; ho had him
self invited and authorized to name the
delegates to the state , congressional and
judicial conventions.
The example sot by Mr. Dawca has boon
followed by candidates for congress and
state offices in other counties wherever
these conventions whore made up of
dummies and henchmen.
A more debating innovation in politics
can hardly bo conceived. Ic will do more
than any other agency to destroy what
.hero is loft of solf-rospooting manhood
n the republican party of Nebraska.
It is a hundred per cent trorso than
the machine which packs primary elec
tions and manipulates conventions.
Alien a olnglo man is given the unlim *
ted power of naming delegates to ono ,
wo or thren conventions , to nominate
udgo , district-attorneys , congressmen
and state officers , a political dictatorship
s created which tramples under foot all
ndividuality , and reduces the delegates
n convention to ] moro tools. In the ao-
ion of Governor Dawos , the one-man
power baa reached the height of audacity
and insolence. If the republican part }
desires to survive , the ono-man power
must bo frowned down and crushed out.
It is bosnism in its most offensive form.
Even the railroads have never done
anything no bold and impudonl
ns this. County committees have
arrogated to themselves the power to
appoint delegates to conventions instead
of allowing them to bo elected by the
people , but under the Dawes plan wo
shall presently have no need of either
primaries or conventions. The whole
power of appointing stale officers ,
congressmen , and all other officers from
constable to United States senator ,
will bo delegated to a syndicate of half n
dozen small bore bosses. If the republi
can state convention docs not denounce
this infamous practice in the most em
phatic manner it will bo dirolict in its
duty to the principles of republicanism
and the great mass of the individual
voters in Nebraska.
In a recent speech Mr. John Bright ,
referring casually to the existing depres
sion in trade , said that while the
the trouble might bo said to bo world
wide , it was evident that England was
suffering loss than any other country on
either aide of the Atlantic. His esti
mate of the relatively small shrinkage in
England is borne out by the traffic returns -
turns of the loading English railways for
the Grst half of the present year , as com
pared with the corresponding period of
1883. The great Northern , the Lan-
coshiro and Yorkshire , the Manchester ,
Sheffield and Lincolnshire show small
ains ; the great Western , the
London , Chatham nnd Dover ,
the London and Northwestern , and the
Northeastern small losses. The only
company which is obliged to reduce its
dividend aa much as 1 per cent , is the
London and Northwestern , which drops
from 7 to 0 per cent , per annum , its ag
gregate capital being JL'89,000,000. There
Is a largo amount of now capital going
into existing railways in the way of im
provements and extensions , the Lanca
shire and Porkohire alone calling for 3- ,
" 00,000 to bo expended in the next
eighteen months. The Great Northern
calls for nearly , L'2,000,000 , the London ,
Chatham & Dover for 'l,7r 2,000 , nnd
the Metropolitan District for ' 1,000,000.
lloro is § 40,000,000 worth of now work
cut out on four old English railways in n
lull season. The comparative prosperity
of the British railways con hardly bo as
cribed to the free trade policy or any
artificial drops which support the traf-
10 in Great Britain.
The British railways are honestly
juilt and honestly managed , under the
rigid supervision of the government

HASTINGS , Auguot 21. On last eve
ning the second convention over held in
this congressional district ronominated
Mr. James Laird , on the first billot. The
preliminary canvass has boon short but
sharp and pointed. A largo number of
staunch republican papers have boldly
arraigned the incumbent on his oflioial
record and to nome extent on his perso
nal record , which is honeycombed with
that looseness of conduct said to bo n
characteristic of Grorer Cleveland , the
democratic candidate for president.
Up to within a few days it was confi
dentially believed that the opposition
would h.ivo n decided majority over
Laird , but the result proved disappoint
ing. This result was largely brought
about bp the active work of the B. & M.
railroad. At Had Cloud , McCook , and
other points in the Republican valley the
railroad strikers carried everything before -
fore them , In ono day , it is reported
that Bovon men started out on the line
of the road , on passes telegraphed for by
Mr. Laird. Cap. Phillips and Roadmas-
tor Campbell were the managers of
Some delegates were offered passes to
the convention and return if they would
agree to vote for Laird , otherwise they
would have to pay their faro. Some
sworn affidavits on these subjects will bo
published bcforo the close of the cam
paign. Polk and Butler counties everyone
ono said , would bo against Laird , and if
they had boon ho would have boon de
feated. All reports agree that the pnoplo
of these counties are bitterly opposed to
him , and yet ho had the delegates solid.
Cap. Phillip is credited with inventing
the fichemo which captured liutlor. It is
safe to say that Laird cannot carry either
of theao counties at the election. Nor
can ho carry York , Seward , Clay , Saline
Jell'oraon , Kearney , Phelps , Franklin or
Harlan at the polls. At least such is the
claim of persons thoroughly posted in
the politics of these counties.
Judco Gasliu declined to allow his
name to go before the convention , rightly
believing that no republican is bound by
the action of representatives so elected.
Hon. Goo. B. Franca received the hand
some compliment of 57 votes on the
first ballot. Next to the railroad influ
ence , the most active forces in behalf of
Mr , Laird were the
nil over the district. The reputable pso-
plo of Hastings confessed with shame ,
that the follows who ran his campaign
belonged to theao classes. Supporting
Laird through local pride , and the ex
pectation of favors from congress through
his efforts , they yet had to take a back
scat in the management cf affairs the
bums are always nearest his person and
Senator Manderson's certificate of good
character and spotless habits may do for
dress parade , but to those who know
mid have known for years of his modu
of life , it will only excite a smile of de
After the business of the convention
was over Mr. Laird made a lengthy
speech in justification of his record in
general and of his Fitz John Porter vote
in particular. Although attractively de
livered it was like most of Mr. Laird's
speeches moro windy than solid ; a
regiment of words to a corporal's squad
of ideas.
Ho began by referring to the calumn
ies of the press , mentioning by name TIIK
BEE. Ho considered himself a very
much abused man. His triumph at the
convention was evidently a surprise to
him on his own confession. Believing
that ho had earned the compliment of a
second term , the fear that ho would not
bo accorded a rouomination caused him
to "experience an agony for the last
twenty days" such as his hearers ' 'could
not know and such , as ho trusted , they
might never know. "
The convention , by n numerous and
eery decided "no" refused to make his
nomination unanimous , and there were a
largo number of delegates who openly do-
zlurcd their intention not to support
liim. The forcing of Laird's nomination
lias seriously jeopardised the election of
* republican congressman from the cec-
jnd district. *
