The republicans of Omaha have re-
bitked boodleriHin In the city hall.
They will rebuke boodlerism In the
Ktatu house ott tHe Uth duy of No
Ik-ach Illfrby , the republican nominee
for city clerk , Is In every way qunlliled
for the place. He Is n man of Rood
clmractpr and will. If elected , doubtless
till the position creditably.
If the republicans of Omaha and
Douglas county take an active Interest
la the election of tlm republican legis
latives ticket they will have uo occasion
for apprehension of calamity.
With Iho Viking ship and the Colum
bus caravels , Chicago will be sulllclently
well protected against foreign Invaders
-without any increase In the number of
fwlarul troops stationed In Its vicinity.
Senator III11 Is now trying to steal
President Cleveland's thunder by - posing
ing as the great and only tariff re
former hlmsolf. How does the ilciilzcn
of the white honsu like this exhibition
of audacity ?
The hanging up of a flaring sign
across Farnam street by the calamity
crusaders is not likely to create a
stampede of voters In the direction of
Majors. The average Omaha voter Is
not to be taken in by n. piece of canvas ,
even when It Is painted red.
The hue and cry of wreck and ruin
which Iho railroad bankers and their
benetlchtrleH have raised will prove a
boomerang at the election. The people
of Omaha nnd the people of Nebraska
know a Imwlc from n hand saw. They
can read between the lines of the Hur-
lington railroad Journtil nnd discern
who la now paying the freight
The Burlington Journal keeps right on
fabricating pictures of wreck and finan
cial ruin from its Omaha fake mill , and
wo would Imagine that Omaha business
men had lost their wits hi their light
over the prospect of Judge Ilolcomb's
inevitable election. The fact Is there
are not two dozen business men tn
Omaha who are In the least concerned
over the horrible nightmare from which
the political manager * of the railroad
contingent are suffering. On the con-
trnry , there are ten business men In
Omalm who disapprove of the calamity
crusade for every one who Is in Us
FIFTEEN TllOL'S-iXD DEMO
The political Usurers at railroad head
quarters have completed and submitted
carefully prepared estimates of the rela
tive strength of Majors and Ifnlcomb.
They have reached the conclusion that
there la no clinnco of electing Majors
unless 15,000 democrats can bo Induced
to cast their votes for him. This esti
mate lias also been concurred In by the
iluplex executive committees that have
taken charge of saving the credit of the
state by the election of Majors.
The problem now Is , where nre these
15,000 democrats to be found , even with
the most lavish ladling out of boodle
and promises of federal patronage.
Last j-ear the railroad faction of the
democratic party , after the most desper
ate effort , was unable to turn 3,500
votes In favor of Holconib's competitor
for the supreme jndgeshlp. This In
cluded democratic railroad employes
who were worked through the railroad
employes * associations. This year it
will be nest to Impossible to get these
men to support Majors , either by
threats of discharge or promise of pro-
motion. Hut. assume that Tone Castor
and his rustlers could round up1,000
democrat * into the Majors corral , where
are the other 11,000 democrats to come
from ? How many democrats will volun
tarily stultify themselves and turn
stoolplgeons for the corporate hench
men who are trying to deliver the
stale Into the keeping of the railroad
5nr through their votes ?
Manifestly the railroad Majcirltes must
go Into" the open market for 11,000 voting
ing cattle. Now there may be 11,000 or
: t,000 democratic reprobates wlllliig to
make merchandise of their franchises ,
but. we doubt whether all the boodle
tlmt could be raked up by the corpora
tions would secure InilC the number of
deinncriitju votes which they require to
boost Majors Into the governor's chair.
It is also safe to predict that by the
time they do n wholesale trallle In dem
ocratic voters there will be : i wholesale
defection of decent and patriotic repub
licans from the tattooed candidate tlmt
will moro than offset the purchasable

Kver since Adhtl B. Stevenson took
Ills oath of olllcc as vice president of
the United States he has exhibited a
spirit of restlessness that shows how
poorly adapted lie Is to a. position that
rails for nothing but ceremonial Inac
tivity. To transfer him from the Tost-
) fllce department , where , as first asslst-
mit postmaster general during Presi
dent Cleveland's ' first term , he was
charged with the exciting and Inspiring
work of decapitating republican post
masters , to the chair of the presiding
> HU'er of the senate , with nothing to do
oxt-ept to see that the ancient code of
senatorial courtesy be maintained In
tact , was almost an act of positive
cruelty. Through the extra session ,
given over to the question of repealing
the purchasing clause of the Sherman
silver law , and the later months of
tedious tai'lff discussion , Adlal with
stoic heroism : has performed the uncon
genial dulyjDf. supervising the debate
In the senate without having the power
to participate In It. fin one occasion
he was , we believe , actually called upon
to cast a vote to deckle n tie , and for
u whllu It looked as if his assistance
might be needed nt any moment Hut
the crisis passed and with It. returned
the demand for more masterly Inac
tivity on the part of the vice president.
T.lttle wonder , then , that Mr. Steven
son Is getting tired of Ids ornaineiltal
ofluv and has taken advantage of every
possible opportunity to slip away and
do n little campaigning for his party
and Incidentally on his own account.
Intermittent political tours , however ,
are not enough to consume his Irrepres
sible energy. He yearns for something
that he can do , not as a private citi
zen , but In his capacity of vice presi
dent This explains his remarks In a
recent Interview : "The present senate' '
Is very close , but since adjournment
two republican senators have , declared
themselves populists. From all I can
learn I think the next Semite will be
either democratic by a small majority
or the populists will hold the balance
of power. At any rate It will be
close. " And the closet * U will be the
better It will suit Adlal. The oftener
he gets a chance to cast his deciding
vote the better satisfied he will be. If
he can bo the Instrumentality of pus.s-
iug. or rejecting a- few measures vital
to the policy of the democratic party
his claims to promotion will be vastly
enhanced. The closeness of the party
division In the next senate this Is

A Washington dispatch reports that
our government lias been risked to Join
with Great lA-ltaln , Krancc , Germany
and Russia In a friendly effort to bring
about peace between Japan and China
and that the invitation has been de
clined. This Is the proper course , for
however desirous the United States may
be that the conflict between the eastern
powers shall end and however willing
It might bo to accept an Invitation from
those powers to tine Its Influence for
bringing about that result , It could not ,
without a most distinct violation of a
policy as old ns the government , Join
with Kuropean powers In any form of
Intervention. Any such "entangling al
liance" as would be Involved In a union
of this kind would contravene n prin
ciple our government has always ob
served and the reasons for which are as
valid now IIH lit any other period of our
history. This country has ilotbdii ; to
do with the quarrels nnd conflicts of
foreign nations except so far as may be
necessary to protect our rights In such
nations , and the wise and safe way to
preserve friendly relations with all
countries Is to keep onr'hand.s out of
their affairs , while Insisting that they
do the name with respect to out-helves ,
lly the continued careful observance of
this sound and secure policy we shall
avoid all chance of gutting Into dltllcul-
ties that a different course would ren
der possible and nt the same time enjoy
greater respect from all nations. Hav
ing gotten along exceedingly well by
minding onr own business for more
tlmn a hundred years It la manlcstly
wtso to continue on tlmt line. The nit-
vlcc of Washington In this particular Is
ns good today ns when ho gave It to
the people of the young republic.
Moreover , Jnpnn Is not asking Inter-
rent Ion nnd does not want If , TO that It
would not be , under existing conditions ,
a fnlr or a friendly not for the nations
to Interfere. She Is not fighting for con
quest , but to enforce the recognition
nnd establishment of principles essen
tial to the advance of clrlllxntlon In
the east. Her invasion of Chlnii , If It
produce the results hoped for , ought to
receive the moral encouragement of en
lightened western nations. Why should
there be nny great concern about China ,
except ns the Invasion of that country
may jeopardize the life nnd property of
foreigners , nnd as to this nothing very
serious IMS yet luippcue'd. So fur as the
Japanese aio concerned they can un
doubtedly be rolled on to deal fairly nnd
justly with Kuropenns and Americans ,
whose rights mid Interests they have
thus far shown every desire and dis
position to"respect. . It is iloubtul
whether European nations will seriously
attempt to Interfere In the eastern
struggle , lint In any event , the plain
duty and policy ot the United States Is
to keep wholly free from any connection

When the republican state central
committee was In session at Lincoln
In 1802 , to 1111 the vacancy caused by
Inellglblllty of , T. ( ! . Tate as lieutenant
governor , I called attention to the dis
reputable part that Thomas .1. Majors
had played In the deadlock that followed
the abduction of Senator Taylor and
pointed out the Indefensible record Mr.
Majors had made In signing a fraudu
lent voucher for Taylor's pay after he
had been spirited away. My statement
was made In the presence of Mr.
Majors , but he attempted no refutation
of. the charge. After I had left the
chamber he ventured a lame defense
by Intimating that the abduction of
Taylor had been brought about by Seth
T. Cole , a detective presumed to lie In
my employ. This contemptible counter
charge was Ignored by me because I
knew that It n.ust be patent to every
person endowed with a thlmblefull of
brains that I hud no interest In the ,
pending railroad legislation that was
sought to be defeated by the parties
engaged In this conspiracy.
Since the opening of tin- campaign
Colonel Majors has repeatedly sought to
befog the public regarding his own cul
pability by malic-Ions Inuendoes con
cerning my relations to Seth T. Cole
and the alleged mystery surrounding
my conduct In connection with this busi
ness. Three days ago .Colonel Majors
went one step further In his Infamous
campaign of falsification. An apostate
populist ox-senator named Warner , who
served with Taylor In the legislature of
1801 , was dug up at Geneva and called
out as a. witness by Majors .to befog
the audience by a speelhl plea of con
fession and avoidance. AVarner was
made to declare that he had met Taylor
at Portland , Ore. , since his flight and
that Taylor frankly confessed that he
decamped from Nebraska during the
scsMon of 18fll with Seth Cole , while
the said Seth Cole was In my employ.
The dispatches from Geneva to the
Hurllngton railroad organ at Lincoln
heralded this malicious libel as a com
plete vindication of Mr. Majora On
the very heels of this baseless assertion
cornea an editorial in the Lincoln
Journal with the following declaration ,
fabricated for the occasion :
This has been a matter of common report
during the years slnco the dramatic disappearance
pearance of Taylor , but this positive confirm-
atlon of theutory by ex-Senator Warner
settles the matter for the people of Nebraska.
Now let 13. Uosewater como out of his hole
and explain why nts man Cole took Taylor
to Oregon , whether It was by his orders , or
whether Cole was botraylne hts employer at
the time , and why. If Cole was betraying
Rosewater. he has been retained In the em
ployment of his Injured master all these
years since ho got away with 'Taylor ' ,
It Is characteristic of Rosewater that he
should endeavor to cover up his tracks In
the "spiriting away" of Taylor by laying It
to "Tom Majors" or the "railroad corpora
tions. " If the railroad corporations were
privy to the Rosewater-Colo abduction of
Taylor , how much did Rosewater get for his
agency In the matter ?
Ho has always declared that tlio railroads
paid the cost of the abduction , and It Is very
evident that he Is In a pretty good position
to know all the circumstances of the trans
action. Ho might as well unbosom , himself
of the particulars.
Now I brand those charges , Inuendoes
and intimations as Infamous libels pur
posely designed to deceive the voters
of this state and circulated broadcast
to shield and cover the parties who
were concerned In that high crime.
There Is no truth whatever In the charge
that Seth'T. Cole was In my employ
In nny capacity during' the session of
the legislature of 1801 , neither was
Cole employed In any capacity whatso
ever by The Itee Publishing company
or anybody connected with The Bee.
The truth Is , and I am ready to prove
It In nny court of Justice , that Seth
T. Cole was In the employ of the Bur
lington railroad during the Kcsslon of
the legislature of 1S91 and was paid by
the Durllngton railroad for taking Tay
lor out of the state. This fact must be
known to General Manager Uoldrege ,
and Mr. Majors could not have been
Ignorant of It Whoa Majors charged
that Cole was employed by me In the
abduction of Taylor lie must have
known he was coining a monstrous
falsehood , nnd when he enlisted Colonel
Warn r to represent that I had some
agency In spiriting Taylor away he reenacted -
enacted the part he played In palming
off the forged census , returns upon the
congressional committee In 18S3.
A man who would resort to such
despicable tactics proves himself to be
totally devoid of the moral stamina and
sense of Integrity which are pre
requisites for the man who aspires to
be chief executive of the commonwealth.

It Is very kind In Mr. Butterworth to
come nil the way from Ohio to tell ns
that our credit has already begun to
disappear , nnjl that the confidence of
the eastern vest or can only be restored
ny handing our state government over
to a gang of railroad trtols and bood-
lorn. Mr. Butterworth was evidently
carefully coached by the railroad con
tingent as to what he should say with
reference to state Issues. Some of the
calamity , crusaders - wanted Governor
Mcl\lnley similarly coached to join
them In the wreck and ruin cry , and
even suggested that one of the recep
tion committee undertake to Instruct
the governor on this point , but the sug
gestion was not over enthusiastically
received. They seem to have succeeded
better with Mr. Ilutterwortb. and that
accounts for hU action ns a mouth
piece of the C. C's.
The hired fakir who Is sounding the
tomtom and pounding the. hewgag of

makes the announcement with a great
flourish of trumpets that the names of
the business men who have been duped
by the false alarm In the interest of
the tattooed man from Nemaha will
have their names published and circu
lated to show how they stand on the con
test for the governorship. By all means
print the names. But when they nre
published , an explanation how each sig

tions would enable the people to under

The New York Sun calls attention to
the fact that the duty on Imported beer
has been reduced 10 cents a gallon by
the new tariff law , or from ? ; ! . 'JO to

the reduction Is all for the importers

The public school janitors are again

It Is reasonably certain that the
America's cup cannot be retained In
this country another year without de

moat nmuslng as well ns striking feature of.
this campaign Is that there are 100 columns
written about Hosetvater In the railroad re

about the candidates. Gad Slnimhter him

Dlalr Pilot L. P. Hilton Is a patriot and
statesman of the boodle brand. Ho Is also
at this time a republican and dolnp yeoman's

for sovornor. Not very lonff since he was
a populist , as the Pilot has evidence lo show ,
but he repented wnen the oil Inspectorship
hove In slpht , and Is now a republican for
rovenuo. As such he manages political nf-
falra for the republicans of Ibis county , and
as loyal partisans they are expected to regis
ter his will at the polls. In his capacity ns
the patriotic party manager he not only
personally dictates the running of conven
tions , but he places the votes of republican
members elected to the leglslaturo from this
county where they will do the most good
( to himself ) for UnUed States senator. It la
a flno thing for the republicans of a county
who mainly are not politicians to have such
a handy man around.
And as this Is a
"republican year , " of course they will all
vote right. The man who would not follow
the lead , and with his vote record the will of
such a renowned party manager , must bo an

Gretna Ueportcr : Our position has not
changed. Before the convention we an
nounced that wo could not support
Majors , and have no occasion to change our
mind. While we deplore the position wo are
placed In , xve believe we are right. Wo may
be branded as n. traitor to republicanism ,
but until we are convinced of our wronff It
must be so. In our belief there Is something
radically wrong with the machine politics at
tha state capital , and It should be righted at
once.T e can better afford to turn the ring
out than we can afford to pay $236,000 annu
ally to Ueep them there. Our duty Is plain.
To redeem the state afid nation we must
elect a republican legislature and congress.
The state will not suffer by turning down the
head of the ticket.
Valley Enterprise : Vote against Tom
Majors , not because he Is a republican-but
because he Is a corrupt man. Vote down
robbery and railroad rule.
McCook Tribune : In the name of decency
let us have an end of this guff about the
peril of Nebraska's credit. Such rot as now
burdens the columns of a certain brand o [
republican newspapers , touching the subject
extremely * tlrcsoino. and 'disgusting , 'and '
doubtless has a more damaging effect than
Imaginary evils anticipated , Nebraska's
credit Is all right , and no amount of political
moonshine can Injure It. Let up.

treating Ilosewater with silent contempt. If

Senator Manderson as saying : "I have
reason to know from my personal experience
ience- that Judge Ilolcomb's election will
be Instantly followed by a heavy withdrawal
of loanable funds. " If that Is the game , the
Issue might as well be met at once. Every
man who la in debt. Instead of voting for
Majors on such grounds , should vote di
rectly for his opponent. These capitalists ,
loan agents , bankers , business men and
politicians who 1alk that way should be
given most emphatically to understand that
their bulldozing scheme will not work. In
substance , these men say to the man who
Is In debt , living poorly , working hard and
honestly trying to pay his debts and sup
port his family : "Vote as we toll you to
do or we will do you up. " Such Insolence
should be. resented In the only effective man
ner In which It can be done at the polls.
Grand Island Independent : Shortly after
they had manipulated the nomination of
Thomaa J. Majors In the republican state
convention no other argument was used In
behalf of the tattooed statesman other than
that Uosewater must bo sat down upon. It
was a dangerous thing to diva Into Majors'
own record , and lh& managers were brazen
enough to believe for a moment that the
honest republicans of the slate would not
resent such a position. But they soon as
certained that U would not do to retain
this uncertain ground , and recourse Is now-
had to assaulting tha reputation of the fair
name o Nebraska. The D. & M. Journal
at Lincoln Is furnishing column upon column
of such slander from day to day upon the
command of the- railroad : managers , tratluc-

governor would or could do In a hundred
years. "The credit of the state must be
preserved. " la their hue and cry. Since
when Is the credit of Nebraska dependent
upon the. political beliefs of the man who
occupies the governor's cnalrT Since when
docs the governor make laws and curry
them Into eflect ? It was always our opinion
that his greatest power In relation to laws
lay In either his approval or his veto , and
that there It practically ends. The legisla
ture has always In the past made the laws ,
has It nol ? And If It has , why docs the
H. & M. Journal not turn Us efforts to
"preserve the credit of the state" to the

That's not what It is after. It Is after a.
man who will veto a maximum rate bill.
With a republican legislature , -which we
are likely to have , we would like to see
the governor who could ruin the "credit
of the stale. " The fact Is that In the
desperate- search for argument In behalf of
the candldate-afrald-of-hls-record , his man

dollar. They say
we're crazy to sell them at a dollar but that's
our business it's your business to own a hat like
this for a dollar every ohanoe you get this is an
