GIADSTONK wns dauntless when assailed by the hosts of conservatism , but ho was easily vanquished by the charge of u swarm of wasps. There arc circum stances in which iv tough lildo is more valuable than the gifts"of statesmanship. MALICIOUS opponents of Mr. Uibbard nro circulating rumors Unit ho is not op posed to prohibition. Mr. Uibbard au thorizes us to say that ho is opposed first , last and nil the time to the submission oi u prohibitory amendment , and thut ho endorses and stands firmly upon the plat form of the Douglas county republican convention. GLOIUIK HniMitOD will poll a tremendous deus voto. No more popular name is on the republican tickot. Closely identified with n number of Omaha enterprises , generous , able , benevolent and of un questioned ability and integrity , George Iloimrod will come to the front next Tuesday with the best of the candidates with n rousing majority. A NKW Yoiuc paper discusses the char- Rotor of the congressional delegation from thut city , and does not present a flattering opinion of the men who fiVe now representing the com rnorelal metropolis of the country Ju congress , or 6 ? J-fcosp who will probablj- succeed thorn , With the exception of Mr. Hewitt thora is not one of the present Now York City con gressional delegation who is above mediocrity , and tlio majority arc among the weakest men in congress , They ere more ward pol.ticlans , with a poverty of both capacity nnd acquirements , and exert no Iniluonco beyond tholr votes. Of these who vrlll probably represent the city In thq next congress , only S , S. Cox has nny experience or known ability in legislative duties , and It Is suggested that In consequence of the somowlmt changed condition of things within the past two years oven ho may bo less successful in the future than ho was in the past , Our Now York contemporary justly regards the fact of the vast interests of that city being represented by such men as deplor able , and remarks simply that It is "a great mystery , " The explanation is doubtless to bo found in the failure of the business men of New Yard to adequately concern themselves respecting the char acter nnd qualifications of ttio men nom inated to represent them , leaving the wltolo matter of selection and election to the politicians. This is too muuh thocaso in urery largo community , and is a mis take which business men ought to see and remedy , SvIflo Charge * . Church Howe has tnado a general de nial of every charge brought nsalnst him , but up to thin hour ho has failed to disprove nny of them. These charges are not mere rumors , but wo have made them specific. 1. Th.it as quartermaster of the Fif teenth Massachusetts regiment ho made the pnrty from whom he purchaied the band instruments pay him a commission , from which ho realized several hundred dollars. Kvidcncc of this is now on lilo in the Massachusetts state house in the form of n letter addressed by Howe to Governor Andrew , begging not to bo removed on account of this little spec ulation. 3. As n nmtmfnrturcr at Holden , Mass. , Church Howe failed , defrauding his creditors , none of whom , it Is thought- ever got si cent. 3 In 18GG Church Ilowo Johnsonizcd and was appointed internal revenue col lector for the Worcester district in Mass achusetts , lie at once began a system atic persecution of manufacturers and rcali/.cd many thousands of dollars from moieties. 4. It is the prevailing belief at Worces ter , Mass. , that Church Howe stele the will of his father-in law nnd destroyed it , This will is said to have left property to his wife In such u way that he could not control it. 5. In 1809 he was appointed United otates marshal for Wyoming by Presi dent Johnson , and us such carried on systematic raids on citUens of tlio terri tory until he was politely requested to vacate by General Grant. 0. That Church Howe , In 187-V74 , mas queraded as a friend of the farmers , joined the grange , played upon the con fidence of the grangers , had himself elected grand master of the state grange , sold out'to the railroads and broke np the organization. 7. That Church Ilowo , in 1875 , as a member of the state legislature , received $ J)00 ) ( ) for his inlluencc and vote for Nclsn Patrick , a democratic candidate for United Stales senator , whom he sup ported with his vote , as proved by legis lative record. 8. That Church Howe has time and. agaiu used his position as a member or the legislature for levying blackmail and scouring bribes. Instance the fact that in 1881 , ho introduced a stringent prohibi tion bill , and compelled the brewers and liquor dealers to raise a largo fund for his benefit. Moro than ono thousand dollars lars was placed in the liands of Howe's confidential agent by P. 15. Her , head of the Willow Springs distillery of Omaha. * ln 1883 Howe made very handsome "stakes" out of the relief bills passed by the legislature. Ho received $200 trom J. W. Pearman and $500 from the Ne braska City National bank. l > . In 1885 Church Ilowo introduced a bill lo make gambling a felony and a fund of over $1,200 was raised by the gamblers of Omaha and Lincoln and placed in the hands of Charles II. Greene , attorney for the 13. & M. railroad , to make Church Howe "lot up. " After this boodle had been raised for Howe , he lost all interest In the auli-gambling bill. 10. We publish the affidavit of a former agent of the Missouri Pacific at Auburn , by which it is shown tliat Church Howe , under pretense of assisting the farmers and shippers of Nomalia county , secured n rebate of § 10 per car load on stock , and swindled them out of $5 on each car load. Douclns Republicanand Prohibition. The republican ticket in Douglas county should not lese rt single vote of those who oppose prohibition. Every candidate on the ticket stands firmly on platform which endorses the high license law. Every nominee of the convention Is pledged to work and vote against the submission of a prohibitory amendment. The names presented to the public for their endorsement nro the names of men whoso word can bo relied on and whose aggressive work can bo depended upon. Douglas county is opposed to prohibitory legislation and' the candidates of the republican publican party will represent their con stilucuoy. If the submission of a prohibi tory amendment is to bo beaten it must be defeated through republican votes. There is no shadow of a ohuucoof a dem ocratic majority in the next legislature. The entire democratic strength will not exceed fifty votes. Every anti-prohibl tion republican elected is worth two democrats in influencing the party to sensible and practicable legislation. None know this better than men like Fred Mote , Peter Her and other prominent citizens who are personally Interested in preventing the costly folly of a prohibi tory enactment. Give Him An Ovation. General John M. Thayer will address our citizens on next Thursday evening in the exposition annex. The people of Omaha owe It to themselves to give the old war horse a rousing ovation , lie was ono of their pioneers ! n early days when Omaha wns a hutted village on the muddy banks of the Missouri and Ne braska , an unknown section on the map. Ho led from the city the first regi ment of volunteers to the war for the preservation of the union and won for himself and his troops high honors on the field of battle and represented this state nnd city in the national senate j General Thayer was an ablc.oloqucnt and devoted RJ'voOJilo ' of the interests of his state on the lloor uf JJ'O upper house , the friend nnd confidant of tiio most dis tinguished public men and the honored intimuto of General Grant. Nebraska has no moro distinguished citi zen to-day than her next governor , John M. Thayer , Advancing years have not quenched the burning fires of ills untiring energy or the brilliancy of his eloquence. Give the old war horse an ovation. - BlUl IVsCllHClC. Business men are vitally interested in the legislation of next winter at the state capital. Omaha will be once moro on hand asking for now laws adapted to her growth and development and fitted to stimulate and to guard her municipal advancement. It is of the highest import ance that her senatorial representatives shall be able and clear headed business men conversant with the wants of the city und competent to voice them. George W. Lminger is such a man. A successful merchant of many years standing , an enterprising citizen , a clean handed republican und a candidate who stands firmly on the high license and labor planks of his party platform , no opponent dare assail his reputation or | -w M call Into question his sterling litness for the ollice. Bruno Tzschuok Is scarcely less known to our pcoplo or to the state. His abound ing common sense aud honest fidelity to every interest committed to his care have given him a proud position among the Gorman-American citizens of Nebraska and have commended him to nil with whom ho lias been brought In contact. As a public official state and federal , Bruno Tzschuck's record Is without a llaw or stain nnd testifies to his olllelunl devotion to the duties of the otlicc.i with which ho has been honored. Liningcr and 'L'zschuck nro good names with which to head a ticket. They will be the names of the senators from Doug las in the next legislature. A Dangerous Expedient. In all the great strikes which have oc curred during tlu past year at Chicago , and in some other ulacos , recourse has boon had by those against whom the strikes wore directed to the employment of a special force for the protection of properly and-employes designated as "private detectives , " supplied by the Pinkerton detective bureau , a private en terprise the ramifications of which ex tend all over the country. A force of this character , armed with Winchester rlllos , was employed during thu lute strike of the pork packers at Chicago and distributed among the various establish ments Involved in thu difficulty. When the trouble Was ended , a branch of this force on duty in the town of Lake , while returning to the city , was confronted at two or three points along the route by strikers and their sympathizers , who abused the detectives , nnd the laller allege attacked the cars with stones aud ether missiles. The Pinkerton men re taliated by firing into the crowd , and ono man was killed. The captain of police of the town of Lake Says the firing was without provocation. The men who did it were arrested and will bo tried , when the question whether they were assailed and fired In self-defense will bo judicially determined. This unfortunate occurrence has directed attention moro seriously than over before lo Hie policy of employing si force of this kind , andcndowlng it with full police power , when there is no exigency requiring recourse to extraor dinary moans , or wheii the lawfully or dained forces for maintaining the peace and protecting life and property have not been exhausted. So far as wo have observed. Iho consensus ot opinion con demns Iho practice : is in conflict with American institutions and a usurpation having no warrant in law. While it may perhaps bo maintained that it would bo the right of the authorities , in an ex traordinary emergency , such ns has tit no tune existed in Chicago , to employ a force of riiis kind , it should never bo done until every regular means provided by law has been exhausted , and then only under the direct control and super vision of the authorities. There has been no exigency in Chicago or else where , growing out of tlie controversies between employers and worldngmcn , in which the police power of the city and the military authority of the state were not ample , if wisely and properly used , for maintaining the pence and protecting life and property , and therefore recourse to a force * outside of these , lawfully prescribed means was without warrant or justification. It is clearly a most dangerous expedient to confer upon ! i body of irresponsible men , gath ered together for the occasion , and owing obedience only to an officer of a private detective agency or bureau , all the power which the law coutcrs upon regularly appointed and sworn officials , and place in their hands weapons to enforce their authority. It is n policy that would not bo thought of , not to say tolerated , in any other country than this , and ' Jt ojight to bo abandoned hero. If a 'private 'detec tive system is necessary to aid the au thorities in ferreting out criminals and bringing them to justice , and wo will not say it is not. lot it bo maintained , with whatever authority of law may be required to carry , it on efficiently , but solely in its legitimate sphere. Whenever ; otherwise employed , as it has been in Chicago , it usurps a function to which it lias no right , in the exorcise of which it is of ne cessity obnoxious , and which is an almost irresistible Invitation to popular resist ance. Tlio law-abiding pcoplo of this country are abundantly able to protect themselves by the lawful means which are provided by the statutes of every state , and they will not pa tiently acquiesce in the resort to" extraordinary nnd unwarranted expedients which has of late become common with those who are not satisfied with the prescribed instrumentalities of the law , The pcoplo will not tolcriilo the presence among them ot armed bands of "private detectives" of whoso official authority they know nothing , nor can it bo well for any interest that such organisations shall bocomc n permanent part of the poiico systems of our cities , The same public sentiment which ap proves the punishment of anarchists who break our laws will demand that the Pinkerton men who shot down IK'gloy in the town of Lake shall receive the pun'.bhmont ' they deserve. THE re-election of Mr. U'illiam R. Morrison to congress is not assured , and there is an apprehension in some quarters that the leader of the democratic majority in the present congress , by virtue of his position ns chcirman of the ways and moans committee , may be missed from the next congress. The OaTOeV ° f MrMorrison as a statesman has no jicun brilliantly successful , largely du.o to his nllsinko of having per- slstently meddled witli thp tattf ? ques tion , of which he knows almost nothing , ' Hut ho lias been successful until now in holding His homo following by reason of the faith of his constituents in the Honesty of hU aims , however unwise or ill-judged his methods , and it Is doubt less Just to say that ho deserved this con fidence. Bite it now uppears that n con siderable number of his constituents have concluded that while hcnesty of purpose in a representative is n most ex cellent and desirable quality , it is not all- sufficient , while there arn still others whohavo a grievance growing out of his recommendations for office. Thus ho Is threatened with losing these dissatisfied elements , the exact strength of which cannot ho determined , but which are be lieved to bo numerous enough to greatly endanger his chance of winning. The republicans in the district have made a vigorous campaign , and they are being helped by a strong faction of the labor element which has hitherto acted wilh HIP democraty. Furthermore , the republican trnttdldnto Is particularly popular with tliH Germans , who are quite numerous ftftho district. The ro- tlri'inent of Mr. Morrison would cer tainly leave a largo-opening In the dem ocratic ranks in congress , and wo cannot think of anyone who would quite fill it. in industry , zeal aud oggre sivones3 , ha has no peer among , tls political associates in the present lions- Pl'llUO PUINTKir'HKNKIHCt Is Still ttV' Ing hard to make capital for himself to the detriment of Ins predecessor.

The republicans of the First district should tisk themselves whether a man having such n record as that of Church Ilowo has any rightful claim upon the support ot any decent republican. Leav ing out of question his corrupt methods and notorious venality we appeal to re publicans to pause nnd reflcel before they put a premium upon party trea son nnd conspiracy against its very exist ence. Ten years ago , when the republican party was on the verge of disaster , and every electoral vote cast for Hayes and Wheeler wns needed to retain the party In power , Church Howe entered Into u conspiracy to deliver republican Nebraska into the hands of the enemy. This Infamous plot is not a mere conjec ture. The proof of It docs not rest on surmise or suspicion It Is not to bo pooh-poohed or brushed away by pro nouncing it ono of Roscwater's malicious campaign slanders , Tlu records of the legislature of which Church Howe wo ? a member in ' 70-77 , contain the indelible proofs of the treasonable enable conspiracy , and no denial can stand against evidence furnished by his own pen. Hrlolly told , the history of this plan to hand over the country to Tildon and democracy Is ns follows : in 1870 Nebraska oh-eteil .Silas A. Strickland , Aniasa Cobb and A. II. Connor presidential electors by a vote of 31,010 as against a vote of 10,1)51 ) cast for the Tildmi and Hciulricks electors. After the election it was discovered that the canvass of this vote could not take place uhder Iho then existing law before the legislature convened. The electoral vote had to bo canvassed In December at the latest , and the regular ses sion of the legislature did not begin until January. In order to make a legal canvass of the ole.etoral returns , Governor Garber called a special session of the legislature lo convene on the Gilt of December , ' 70 , at Lincoln , tor the pur pose of canvassing the doctoral vote of the state. The democratic efibrt lo cap ture republican electoral votes is historic. Tildun's friends , notably.Lr. ) Miller , had been plotting for the capture of ono of the electors from Nebraska , and it is also historic that a largo bribe was offered to ono of the electors , General Strickland. The call of the legislature- broke into the plan of the plotters , and they found a will ing and reckless tool in Church Howe. When the legislature convened at the capi talChurch Howe Hied a protest which maybe bo found on nages 0 , 7 and 8 of the Ne braska House Journal of 1877. The fol lowing extract makes interesting reading : " 1 , Church Howe , a member of the legisla ture of Nebraska , now convened by procla mation of his excellency , Governor Silas Harbor , for the purpose of canvassing and declaring the result of the vote cast in Ne braska for doctors for president and vice president of the United States , heicby enter my solemn protest against such act , denying that the governor has power to call this body In special session for any su''h purpose , or that this body has any authority to canvasser or declare the result of such vote upon the following [ 'rounds : First. This Irulslalure now convened hav ing been elected under what Is known as the old constitution , has no power Id act in the promises , the now constitution of the state having been in foicoBlnco November , 1875. " The second and third clauses deal with technical objections and nro somewhat lengthy. The concluding sentences of this precious document are as follows : "For the foregoing reasons I protest against any canvass of tlio electoral vote of the state by his body , and demand that this , my protest , be entered upon the journal. " ( Signed ) Church Howe , member of'thc ' legislature of Nebraska. The democrats did not respond , to the call of the governor nnd Ihere was barely a quorum in the senate , while there were several u > spare in the house of which Ilowowas a member. The protest en tered by Howe was doubtless prepared by the Tildcn lawyers in Omaha and Howe had the glory of being the sole champion of Sam Tildon. The legisla ture ignored Church Howe , spread his protest on its record and canvassed the electoral vote in spite of it. When Iho legiblutlire convened in Jan uary , 1877 , the presidential contest was at its height in Washington. Church Howe had changed places from the house to the senate. Early in the session , a resolution was introduced expressing the conviction on the parr of the senuto that Hayes and Wheeler having rccoived n majority of the electoral voles were en titled to their seats. This resolution gave rlso to a very lively debate which lusted two ( lavs. Church Ilowo asken to bo excused from Doling when It first caino up and was so excused. On the final passage of the resolution the record [ page 370 , Senate Journal 1877 , ] shows the following result : Yeas Ambrose , Batrd , Blanclmrd , Uryant , Calkins , Cams , Chapman , Colby , Dawos , Garfield - field , Ulilinm , Hayes , Kcnnard , Knapp , Popoon , Powers , Thummol , Van Wyck , Walton'nnd Wileox-20. Those voting in the negative wore : Aton , Brown , Covoll , L'orguson , Hlnman , Holt , Church Ilowo and North 8. During the same session of the legisla ture , Church Howe's vole on United States senator for the first throe ballots h recorded as having been cast for B. W. Thomas , n South Carolina democrat , [ pages 108 and 208 Senate Journal , ] All this time Church Ilowo professed to bo a republican independent , republican on national issues and a temperance granger on local issues. We blmply ask what right a man with such a record has to ho support of any republican. 8TATK ANIVTISKKITOUY. Nohrnwlcu. Jottings. Throe glandorod horses were killed in Hastings lately.

He threatens to rumoVu the capital , to put an embargo on railroad bulidlnc In the South Platte , even to vote for prohibition If the repub licans do vote him into congress. They ought to give him an everlasting fur lough ns a demagogue nnd trickster. Can't Ilo Whitewashed. Liberty Gazelle ( Hop. ) : Having become - como convinced ( hat Church Howe is a corrupt politician and actuated by mo tives of personal gain , wo can no longer support his candidacy for the high ollice to which ho aspires. The interests of this district.aro too sacred to be trusted in the hhiids'of ' n man whose every act Is meas ured with a price. Wo ( lid thinkwo would try and oat our part of tho.crow and support the ticket , but wo have con cluded that In justice to our honest and candid opinions and our readers , wo cannot do it. It is folly for us to try to whitewash men whom we know that our readers know to bo unxvorthy their suf j frage , and wo know that In this the gooil people of this county will stand by us. Scratch Ills N'nuio. Wymoro Reporter ( Rep. ) : The con gressional affairs m the First dlstricl are in a deplorable state. Wo candidly stated our views as to Church Howe in our first issue after he was nominated. We did it without regard to what others ml"ht think or say. Hut timu has de veloped llui fact that five out of the ten republican papers in Gage county will not support Church Howe , thu nominee of the republican congressional conven tion. The act of the convention virtually disfranchises a large number of republi cans of Gage county , from thu fact that " they nominated "such a notorious , disreputable man that they cannot vole for him , and unless they vole for a democrat or the prohibition nominee they have to scratch Howo's name ofl'tho ticlsot ana thereby disfranchise them selves. But we consider thai il is an net of principle to scratch Church Howe's ' name oil' the ticket and vote n blank rather than vote for him because ho in our party nominee. No republican should vote for a man that did all in his power to prevent the electoral vote of Nebraska from being canvassed and thereby place .Samuel J. Tildon in the presidential jail. This , Church Howe ( lid , as the house journal of 1877 shows. This act alone should bo nnoimh lo pre vent every true and loyal republi can of tlio First district from cast ing a vote for him. It would bo a shame and a disgrace to the republican party of this district to bo represented by such a dishonorable man as Church Howe. We very much regret that such a man was nominated. Bill the fact that ho has spent months in manipulating conventions ami packing delegations in the interest of his nomination , has not been idly disregarded by Iho intelligent voters of the district , and they will not siifler themselves lo bo forced by the party hibh to support such a disreputable nominee. IMoro or lloivn mill Colby. Cortland Journal ( Hep. ) : The last issup of the Journal created considerable stir in political circles. A fnw of tlio republi cans who place party above principle wcro indignant because wo saw fit to drop Church Howe nnd L. W. Colby , and went so far as to threaten to got up an indignation meeting and down the paper. Nothing would please us better than an Indignation meeting m this preemot nnd WH challenge and defy any opposition to the course wo are pursuing , to go ahead with their indignation nicotines , provided wo bo allowed a hoarins. Wo nave assur ances tliat Iho belter element of the re publican party in this precinct will eland by us in bolting the nominations of Church Howe and L. W. Colby. Ever since the Beatrice and Wymoro packed caucnssos were held wo have declared in nearly ovcry issue of the Journal that the people were becoming disposed to ex amine candidates for high offices of trust and responsibility , and were less under the control of party than In years past , when great Issues divided parties. The Journal is not the otilv republican paper in this county thut believes that the only way by which the republican parly cnh maintain the confidence of the people is to cast aside corrupt candidates who force themselves to tnn front by corrupt and disreputable means. This is an off your , the republicans in this county nro asked to support Church Howe and L. W. Colby , and now Is the time and opportunity to show .such men that the party Htands for some things ex cept the spoils of ollico. The republican party in the past has been progressive , I Us leaders have boon men of brains and patriotism , ready at all times to deal with the great questions of the day , and in order to maintain that confidence the people must sco to it ( hat honest and capable men are put for ward to onnot and enforce - force the laws of the land and not men who enter the hallsof legislation simply to draft and introduce wholesome laws and resolutions for the purpose of defeating them themselves for largo pecuniary coiiKidnralioiiH. Such trans actions nni charged iigamst Church Howe and published to the world , and are not donlod by him or his fronds , L , U. Colby , the disciple of Church Howe , has already made a record in Gage county that will keep him from participating In the next legislature. Ho IH a man of brains unit cunning , but ot no political sagacity Ho presume- ! lee muuh on the credulity of tlio votors'of the county when he chances everything on securing a nomination.
