E. 1. Moon, editor of the Scottsbluff
Herald, .is a Icvol-hoatled, philosophical
sort of a man. Recently1 the commissioners
of Scottsbluff county Called for bids for the
County printing, and Bro, Moon, being on
the wrong side of the fence, politically,
got left, of course. But ho doson't whine
a bit. Here is what ho says about it.
A number of papers in the state are just
now raising a big howl on account of their
not getting the, county printing in their
counties. This giving vent to one's feci
ings when you are shoved into the back
ground by a cold, unfeeling board of com
missioners is a sure indication of "sour
grapes." The Herald filed a bid to do the
county printing and furnish the stationery
and supplies, and we got just what wo c
pectedj nothing ana we're not sore
about it either,
Somebody has said that "he who bloweth
not his own horn, the same shall not be
blown." Evidently the editor of the Gor
ing Courier has read the old axiom and be
lieves in it, for listen to him;
Never in the history of this office have
we had a steadier run of job printing than
during the past few months, and it still
seems to be stacked up for as long a time
into the future. It is the policy of this
shop to do good work and no pains are
spared to please our costomers. hence we
command work from a larger territory than
the ordinary country office could expect.
The editor of the Ansley Chronicle, Tom
"Wright, impresses one with the idea that,
though a republican, there is more of
honesty and fearlessness in his composition
than is manifested by the average g. o. p.
newspaper man. It is plain to Imj seen
that Bro. Wright was in earnest when he
penned this paragraph:
The Broken Bow Republican insists that
the next term of governor belongs 10 Cus
ter county, and if Gov. Savage is not ac
ceptable a good substitute can be furnished.
That may all be very true and we believe
there is nothing too good for Custer, but
the diabolical, incorrigible pardon of Bart
ley, the thief, by a governor from this
county, almost demands, foriho present at
least, that Custer county go away back and
In the event that Gov. Savage is nomi
nated and it looks that way now will the
Chronicle repudiate him, and join hands
with the fusionists in an effort to elect a
better man? '
Two or three editors of the state, jealous
of his ability as a writer and his success as,
a newspaper man, have accused Edgar
- Howard, of the Columbus Telegram of an
overweening desire to represent his district
in congress. But Bro. Howard denies the
soft impeachment thusly:
Edgar Howard neither solicits nor de
sires a nomination for congress. He is
grateful to every friend who has mentioned
his name in that relation, but his one am
bition for the present is to run a demo
And jet there are few men in Nebraska
who would reflect'greater credit upon their
constituency in the ,halls of congress than
the brainy editor of the Telegram.
There is more truth than fiction epres
ed in the following paragraph from the
A man who does not advertise cannot
long remain in busjness in Fullerton
that is judging from passing events. This
is a different age than some fellows ever
lived in and if you expect to get your share
of the business, hire a band and a news
paper and go after it. If you don't it is
only a question of time until you will drop
out of sight.
If there be any truth in this little. narra
tive from the Bayard Transcript, then in
goes without saying that there's something
"out of joint," somewhere. And if it is a
base slander, then the young ladies of Bay
ard should demand an abject apology:
We understand that the young ladies of
one of our churches are considering the ex
pediency of giving a hugging social for the
benefit of the depleted church treasury.
This is anew idea in church socials, and
has knocked the foot show out completely,
The editor of the Bridgeport Blade is
not so hide-bound in his republican faith
that ne cannot wish a brother newspaper
man although differing with him politi
T. J. O Keefe lias moved his printing

There are two kinds of republicans
the broad and the narrow-gauged. We've
got a whole lot of respect for the former,
but none whatever for the other sort.

nights ago when some of the boys got
bowled up a little. We think there were
some pretty badly scared people in town
about the time tin popping began, especial
ly those nearest the bullets. It began with
a noisy crowd and ended with a rough
The Adams County Democrat grows elo
quent in its advocacy of Gen. Victor Vif
quain as the next democratic nominee for
for governor of Nebraska:
Among the democrats the name of Gen.
Victor Vifquain is often mentioned as the
proper candidate for governor. The soldier
candidate indeed, and a grand man in
every respect. There isn't a democrat in
Nebraska who would not support General
Vifquain loyally. When elected you would
have a big, strong man in the exeoutive
hair; a steady head and a true heart.
Why not Vifquain?
Tis, Tftnf nnc fftc
The Grand Island Democrat lacks confi
dence in the sincerity of many republicans
who have raised such a howl about the
pardon of Joe Bnrtley, and the Hrralu
agrees with the Domocrat whon it says:
If the republicans were conscientious in
condemning the Hartley pardon why do
not some of them condemn the law and ad
vocate a change to a Board of Pardons.
This would hamper republicans in Nebras
ka but, nevertheless, it would bo a long
step in the right direction.
This from the York Teller indicates that
its editor is averse to being laughed at:
Some of the editors laugh at us and say
we try to tickle our subscribers by publish
ing a list of those who pay.
Just keep right on publishing the names.
It is perfectly legitimate, besides a good

If every alleged newspaper man who

lively campaign we shall see this year
among the republicans.
