The s aleincut.i by the republican

a diversity that tenders highly linpiob.t-

of the. committee assented. Two of the

The onlj excuse for emitting .smh a
slllj slur upon our state would be the
plea tint it was wiitteii between tliinUs.
The idea that in Xebi.iska evcty town
starts fiom a saloon , fiom which the
path leads to a newspaper , Is a .stupid
slander upon the stuuly pioneeis who
loiinded our NebiasK.t towns.
It Is eipi.illy scandalous to assptt that
In thi' giowth of Xebi.iska towns there
is a constant shugglo between tli
chinch and the saloon to equalize on"
another , iseoios ot low'iis in NebiasKa
have never had a saloon , while we doubt
if tlieio is one without a chinch. In
any OM'tit , the saloon in Xebiaska Is not
tin list to tlie ton-ground so piomiuently
as to Uneaten to displace the church ,
nor Is thete a disposition on the pait of
the people in towns whole saloons exist
< o make the saloon a chief lactor in their
giow tli.
X-brasKa editors/ire certainly intelli

coiintiies that have Indicated a desiie to
enter into them , but the oidlnary ton
tine of negotiation Is slow , owing to the
gi eater diliicullles In the way than in
the case of pievlotis negotiations. It
Is stated that there are hardly any cases
in which the lepiesontntlves of foieigu
powers at Washington have bivn able
to tiausmit completed diafts of arrange
incuts to their home governments for
cnnsldeintlon and In .some of these
cases amendments have been .suggested
which ha\e imolved counter pioposi-
lions on the side of the United States.
None of the negotiations has yet icached
a complet > stage.
As yet there Inve been no ] iioposltloin
submitted relating to reciprocity with
Oeimany , although the subject has been
talked over iR'tweon the ( I'liuan am-

Kasson , while the negotiations with

Is expressed whether definite miange-

The Ohio National ( iuaid association
In asking ( ongioss to grant tlio Cuban'
the same belllgeiont lights that wu
accorded to the confedoiacy , did not
coiisldoi that thete is a wide diltetenci
In th > cliciimstancos. At the very be
ginning of the southoin lobolllon a .slate
ol. war was conceded by the govoiiimonl
to exist and this being admitted the
giant lug of belligerent lights to the con-
fed nacj by loieign nations , of whom
Spiln was one of the llrst , was entirely
in accoid with Intel national law. It
was simply the recognition by othei
powets of what the United States gov
ernment had acknowledged. In the eas-
oi' Cuba , on the other hand , Spain
not cono'ded that a state of war "xist- ,
theie and the conduct of Uie contest on
the pa it of the iiisiit gents has not been
such as to wMiranl this govoiument in
assuming , for the puipose of granting
belligerent lights , that there is a state
of war. The soil ol campaigning and
lighting cuil"d on by the insurgents , as
was pointed out by rtesldont Giant
during the piocoding insuiiection , dooH
not nocossaiilv constitute war. It is
obviously absuid to suggest a parallel
1)'tween the southoin coufedoiacy and
Cuba , the on- * having an oigani/od gov-
oiiimont and a well oqulpp'd aimy.
while the insurgents have m.ietloally no
