CIIUHCII Howi : is still hard at work
trading. If there is any candidate for
any olllec in the 1'irst district who hasn't
already received promises of cardinal
support from the Nomulm trickster it is
because ho has only just announced his
candidacy. As a promisor llowo has no
equal. As a breaker of promises ho is
without a rival.

The race for governor will not bo n
walkaway for any candidate. With
Henry T , Clarke and John M , Thaycr as
the mast prominent candidates , there
are a number of minor aspirants who
will have following enough to hold thu
balance of power. Jlon. Lenndor Gor-
rard of 1'latto county will muster tlio
delegations from his own and the sur
rounding counties. lion , J , B. DliiHinoro
of Clay county 'has considerable following -
ing in the southwest , lion. Jack McC'all ,
who is very popular with tlio boys of the
western part of the state , has just entered
the race track with a very enthusiasto !
crowd of supporters. Then there are so v-

Tlio Ilooillo Cnmllilftto.
And now comes one of tlio Pawnee
county railroguo roosters nnd declares
that the Iliiwas : ; caught In anoutragcoin
lie when it said that Church Howe in his
harangue before the 1'nwndo convention
"failed to refer to the three thousand dollar
lar boodle which ho is reported to have
pocketed during the session of 183iwhen
ho voted for that eminent demoi-ratio
patriot ami Sam Tildon's bo otn friend ,
Ni-lso Patrick. " Mr. llowo , wo are told ,
"did refer to the Patrick boodle in the
presence of live hundred republicans and
proved conclusively by the records of tlio
senate and by Van Wyck's vote that he
was innocent of this infamous charge. "
This is about on par with lite impudence
of Wilcox , the Mendota Carpenter , who
had the brn7.cn check to address the
Grand Army boys at tboir late reunion in
the face of tlm record that shows him to
bo an expelled member of tlio order on
the charge of embezzlement and drunk-
Church Howe no doubt did toll the llvo
hundred republicans in I'awnot county
that the record cl ears him of the infamous
charge , nnd that Van Wyck is on record
as voting for his acquittal. The record ,
however , shows no such thing. It simply
shows that the whitewashing committee ,
of which Church Howe's coparceners in
rascality were members , reported that
tlio charges had not been sustained. But
thrro is no record to show that Senator
Van Wyck was present when this report
was adopted. The record simply allows
the adoption of the report. There may
not even have been a quorum present
when it wns rushed through.
If Howe had not been notoriously n
boodle man there still would bo tlio ques
tion for republicans to ponder over , why
did Church Howe support , work lor and
vote for Patrick , n democrat , , for United
States senator ? Why did ho try to rope
in other republicans into a coalition to
beat Diindy , Thayer and Paddock with
Nolso Patrick ? Did Mr. llowo venture to
explain that knotty question to tlio five
hundred credulous republicans of Pawnee
But the $3,000 boodle is a mere trillo in
Howe's checkered career as a Jaw-maker.
Ho bus always found it profitable In spend
thousands of dollars for a scat in tlio leg
islature which afforded him almost un
limited chances for blackmail and bribe-
taking. Wo know very well by what in-
lluences ho cniiturod Pawnco county.
Pass books , Missouri Pacific favors , sub-
sidi/.cd editors and greenback lubricators
did that business. Those agencies may
exert si powerful influence in primary
elections and conventions , but Church
Howe hasn't money enough to buy a ma
jority of the voters'of this district.
Tlio Viral Gun To-Day.
. To-day Arkansas will open the fall
election season. The republicans have a
state ticket composed of capable and
reputable men , but the fact that tlio bo.-s-
ism of Powell Clayton has been moro or
less conspicuous in the campaign is not
believed to have given any strength to
the republican cr.uso , notwithstanding
the admitted fact that Clayton is an ad
mirable organizer. There is a very con
siderable element of the party in the
atato that has learned to distrust both the
methods nnd the aims of Clayton , and if
it tloes not help the opposition directly it
will in nil probability do so by withhold
ing its voto. It is expected , also , that
there will bo a material desertion of the
colored vote , which in localities has been
manifesting some displeasure with repub
lican tactics. Indeed , tins is an experi
ence not peculiar to Arkansas , and tlio
fact is one which republican leaders may
well give attention to. The August elec
tions in Tennessee for county oilicers and
judges of the supreme court showed a
most surprising diversion of the colored
vote to the democrats. Two years ago
the democratic majority in Tennessee
was reduced to about 7,000 , and it was
quito generally felt that that state
miirlit bo placed in the doubtful
list nt the next presidential
election. At the August elections , how
ever , the result was n heavy blow to this
expectation , the democratic candidates
for judicial honors having a majority of
nearly 40,000. The coming state election
may show that the departure of the col
ored vote made evident by these figures
was only casual , duo to influences local
and temporary , and the result may bring
the parties soni'-what nearer together in
numerical strength. It is not , however ,
to bo expected that tiio change will bo
wlxolly overcome , and it would seem al
ready certain that republican hope re-
spooling Tennessee in 1838 must bo aban
doned. Kcports from other southern
states indicate n similar tendency on thu
pnrt of tlio colored vote , and It is certain
thnt it will bo the plan of the stdministra-
tiou to further this movement in every
practicable way that will not give serious
offense to the extreme bourbon element
of the democracy. Surprising as such a
movement may appear to some , it is not
The election in Vermont occurs on
Tuesday , nnd of course will result in a
largo republican majority. Whether it
will mount to the usual figures , however ,
is uncertain. The factional fight in the
state convention , directed chiefly against
Senator Edmunds , did not exhibit very
irreat strength and was easily overcome ,
but it is not assured tlmt those who en
gaged in the revolt worn wholly subdued ,
and that they will not nmko their di.s-
pleasure foil nt the ballot box. Still ,
there is no doubt as to what tiie verdict
of Vermont will bo.
Maine will vote next Monday , and the
result In that state is awaited with pe
culiar interest , Them are several rather
important things which it will go far to
detorminu. One is whether Mr. Blaine
retains unimpaired his influence with
the republican masses of his own state , a
showing which will have more or less in
fluence upon his presidential chances.
The object of Mr. Blaine in taking so
active and aggressive n part in the cam
paign could be none other than to de
velop the fact regarding his strength nt
homo. Another thing it will determine
is the real force of the prohibition policy
in popular regard in the nursery of that
principle , and the Influence of this will
have wide extent. Still another thing
which it will in u measure determine is
the strength of the Cleveland administra
tion. Tliose considerations give tiie
Maine election this year rather moro
than usual significance. The present in-
dieations point to republican succosx , and
it is observed that oven the mugwump
journals expect this result.
A Knarini ; Faroe. '
The Iowa commission has finally made
its decision in tlio case of Council Bluffs
against the Union Pacific railroad. The
result Is what might have boon expected.
The Union Pncilic i ? Instructed to change
its advertisements which represent Coun
cil Bluffs on the map by u fly speck ,
Omaha by n largo grease spot. It is in
formed that it need not move its shops to
tlio lilutfs unless it wants to or tear down
the plow of tlio now bridge , but it is or-
.clcrctl to run n cabooe across the rivet-
on stock trains or tnko the consequences.
The company is also instructed to
increase freight facilities at the
IHull's , which liavo already been increased -
creased without the recommendation of
tlio commission. This is the result of
tlio protracted examination of la.st sum
mer and of the hundred complaints made
ngaiust tlio road to the commission.
What a ridiculous farco. What possi
ble jurisdiction has the Iowa railroad
commission over the advertising depart
ment of n rend engaged in interstate
commerce. If tlio citizens of Council
IIluffs are being treated unfairly by the
Union Pacific in violation of the charter
tlio only place to seek justice is in the
courts. No ono knows bottnr tlian the
usole-H Iowa commission tliii nino-tentlis
of all the complaints that might be raised
by citizens of Iowa against the Union
Pacific would bo quite outside of its prov
ince to remedy. The 8:11110 : is true of any

Thu railway commission fs a device to
gull thi ) public and pruvunt'proinpt reme
dial action in the case of olfenses com
mitted against tlio public by common
carriers. It has been given a fair trial in
a ilo/.nn slates with tlio invariable result
of disgusting tlio people by its inulli-
cieney. In Missouri tlio state railroad
commission lias lately admitted its own
failure to protect the public. In Nu-
braskn the commission is a disgrace to
the state. With a jurisdiction limited by
state lines railroad commissions are in
capable of oven attempting to deal with
the mass of questions raised by the dis
criminations and extortions of roads
doing an intcr-stato business , while their
puny power is unable to enforce their de
cisions where their authority is unques
tioned. The public must bo protected by
statute law whoso enforcement can be
secured through the courts open to every
citizen. This is the only remedy against
railroad discriminations and extortions
which can meet the requirements of the
Ilic Return to .School.
To-day , throughout tlio republic , llio
schools of the people will reopen , and the
millions of children who have enjoyed
tlio relief and tlio recuperation of n two
months' vacation will return to their
mental tasks , reinforced by thousands of
others who will for the first time enter
into tiio mysteries of the school room. If
ono will but give a little play to the im
agination it is easy to shape a most inter
esting and pleasing picture of this great
army of tlio future fathers and mothers
of tlm nation moving with buoyant steps
and happy hearts to tlio fountains of ed
ucation , whoso wide-open doors will welcome -
como them as with outstretched arms to
their genial and beneficent precincts.
What a joyful , cagpr and expectant host
it is , ns it goes on its way laughing , romp
ing , and giving full way to all the cx- :
uberant impulses of young life. Some
what motley , it is true , is this great
throng in aupearnnce , for it is composed
of the children of the people , anil not of
a class. Its ranks embrace every typo
that has found an asylum and a home
iu the great republic , anil pre
sent every condition of life ,
from the poorest to that of 3 ample
aflluenco. Herein wo see tlio bcneli-
ccnco-and the glory of the public school
system of the nation , which as the truest
and best expression of the American
principle of freedom , and equality , makes
no distinction in the bestowal of its priv
ileges and advantages between rich and
poor , wlnto an d black , native and for
eign born. But if there lie not homo
geneity in the aspect and tlio conditions
of tlioso who compose this youthful
army , there is certainly" complete har
mony in its spirit and its enthusiasm.
For a moment tlio current of its life
flows in one channel nnd is dominated
by a single aspiration. It is jroing to
school , and it unanimously understands
There is another part of the picture
which presents to "tho mind's oyo" an
array of intelligent , thoughtful and earn
est teachers , ready with refreshed visor
and renewed /.enl to take up again the
task of duty and of love which thuv laid
aside two months ago for a season of
needed and useful rest. They , too , are
happy to-day , for they will greet thu
cherished faces tliuy have not seen for
weeks , in every ono of
which Ihoy Imvo a sincere and abiding
interest as charges whoso most impor
tant concern they are commissioned to
care for , nnd to both the reunion will bo
one of pleasure and affection These
lonchcr.s return to their duty not only
with renewed energy , but with enlarged
capacity. They Imvo not been wholly
idle during their vacation days. A part
of the time they were themselves at
Mcliool , liumimg of those wiser and moro
experienced , or acquiring a clearer in
sight and broader understanding ot their
duties by the interchange of views and
experiences. Thus they take up their
task again bolter equipped than when
they laid it nsid.o for performing it
worthily nnd successfully.
In nil its asoocU nnd suggestions the
recurrence of the people's school ycnr is
interesting nnd instructive , nnd In order
to appr i-ciato how much so it is , and to
realize what sv grandly beneficent in
strumentality is tlio publio school sys
tem of the nation , ono must contemplate
it in its entirety. For thi.s purpose to-day

tlio phenomenal growth of the town of

I talked with a number of merchants
about thu railroad facilities with Omaha ,
mil found but one story. The complaint
is universal that under existing
UA11,1OAI ! > DIM'UIMINATIONS ,
Chadron merchants cannot do business
satisfactorily with Omaha dealers. What
ever may bo the tarilV sheets shown to
our wholesalers , tlio system of rebates
and. special rates is used to attract all
tiie trade- possible to Chicago. 1 am told
that in several well known instances
Chadron merchants ship cheaper from
the lakes titan from the Missouri river ,
while orders from Chicago reach
tin-in from one to three
days quicker than from Omaha.
Goods from Omaha are hauled on the
local freight trains , while those from Chicago
cage come through by fast freight. As a
case in point , a merchant was t-ited who
last week bought a ear load of irootls
from a Chicago house and another of the
same class from an Omaha dealer. The
difference in freight alone was ! ? . ' ! 7.2.T in
favor of Chicago. Of course such dis
crimination is killing , and the business
which Omaha firms do along the line of
this railroad is onlv secured at the loss
of tlio bulk of 'their profits. Chad-
rim is eagerly looking for a
competing road , ; and the eyes
of her people turn longingly
towards the H. & ' M. ' whose advance
corps is pointing sixty miles south towards
tlio Itox Hutto county. 'Tiio ' Northwest
ern , like every other railroad , is working
for revenue and the lon > r haul and it se
cures both. It ivill ccmtinue to do so
until it sees that its interest lies in an
other direction. There is little political
agitation visible in this section nt present.
Dawos , county , with1 Sheridan and Sioux ,
formed from old Sioux , are a part of the
tenth judicial district of-ton counties , and
almost as many are comprised
in tlio senatorial and legislative
district under tboiold apportionment.
Tlio Thirty-first senatorial district com
prises the counties of Dawson , Lincoln ,
Keith , Cheyenne , Dawcs , Sioux , Sheri
dan , Logan and the unorganized territory
abuvo Keith. Tlio Fifty second repre
sentative district omits Dawson and Lin
coln. Hero is a largo territory. In the
live years siiico the apportionment was
made fully liftcon thousand souls have
been added to the population and a largo
proportion of the now voters will bo found
in northwestern Nebraska. An eflbrt
will be made by the upper tier of counties
to secure either the senator or represent
ative out candidates have not blossomed
out numerously owing to the uncertainty
of what the convention will allot
to this section. Among tlio
farmers Van Wvek sentiment is strongly
predominant. The press , with few ex-
copious , is anti-Van Wyck. Railroad
passes and corporation pap is as effective
hero as elsewhere in inlliioncing editors
who are unable to pay faro.
Local interest during the week has cen
tered in the session of court over which
Judge Jlainer is presiding. The chief
ease has been that of the state against
Casey , charged with robbing tlio stage
last January of $0,100 of government
funds. With eight lawyers lighting over
the admission of evidence , sixty witnesses
gathered from nil parts of the
( tale , and sessions of court
holding over till nearly midnight , Judge
Hauler has been working hard to earn
his salary. The prosecution have estab
lished a strong chain of circumstantial
evidence designed to prove that Casey's
story is incredible , and tiiat no other
bauds but his could have taken the
money , while the defense rest their case
chiefly upon the excellent character of
the accused anil the fact that ho had ac
cumulated a largo sum of money , in the
banks before the robbery occurred.

Prohibition uuil Politics.
In this state wo have a local option
lawwe have a law against selling liquors
to minors , laws against soiling liquor to
habitual drunkards , laws against the sale
of liquor on Sunday , and yet these laws
are openly set at defiance. And why ?
Hccausu the prohibitionists nro devoting
all their efforts to political work. Ap
parently they would rather elect ono of
their number to ollico than stop the sale
of liquor to minors ; apparently they bad
rather spend their tmxo and money iu
electing a perfectly useless member of
assembly than in stopping the sale of
liquor on Sunday. The prohibitionists
refuse to admit it , but it is nevertheless a
fact that their political organization is
doing the cause of temperance incalcul
able injury. Only a very small percent
age of the temperance people of this slate
are in the ranks of tiio prohibi
tionists. They do not believe in ragging
temperance into politics. They are to bo
found in both the old parties , anil are
not disposed to leave them to join an
organization the aim of which is solely
to secure a prohibition amendment which
cannot bo enforced , but which would ,
on the contrary , make liquor selling
practically free and increase general
taxation. These men , constituting I ho
great majority of the temperance cle
ment , arc in favor , first , of enforcing the
laws as they exist to-day stopping tlio
sale of liquor to minors , to drunkards
and on Sunday-and , second , they are
anxious to have a high-license law that
will shut up the groggenes , increase the
cost of liquor selling and reduce to tlio
lowest point the evils of iiitonipr-ranco.
Prohibition has everywhere proved a
failure ; high license has everywhere
proved a success. The advocates of the
lormor policy are just now the moro
active , but thu advocates of the hitter are
far nearer success.
