Gjlntt, in charging the county
fSOO for two days1 work, plainly
shows his love for the dear tax
payer. But then he is not living
in, North Platte purely because the
atmosphere agrees with him.
Two noLiiARs out of every five
collected for national revenue go to
the soldiers and sailors of the late
war, and for this reason the Demo
crats howl over the extravagance of
the Republican administration.
It is not considered etiquette to
refuse to act when insisted upon,
and this is the reason Snelling ac
cepted the nomination for county
attorney. The Judge's sense of
propriety is much admired by his
The so-called "bull team" of
former campaigns pales into utter
insignificance when compared with
the lashers, Snelling and Gantt.
But many of the alliance members
refuse to submit to the dictation of
the above ringsters and will return
to the party of their first love.
Snelling thinks that if he, as
county attorney, isn't able to prose
cute a case he can secure the ser
vices of a good man to help him;
hut the question is, do the tax
payers of the county want to pay
for two attorneys when one should
do the work? We think not.
accepted is preference to the one
published in the Current clothed
with an alias.
"I left the Republican party,"
said an alliance man, "because I
thought there was too much ring
rule, but in joining the alliance 1
jumped from a feather tick into a
bed of thorns. The gag rule of
Boss Gantt is too much for me."
The above gentleman voices the
sentiment of many Republican al
The Democratic whip handled by
Mr. Gantt in the recent independent
convention was most effectual in
getting the Republican alliance del
egates into line, and though six or
even of tkem protested against
Spelling's nomination and insisted
that he had oe office and ought to
be satisfied, it was useless tor L-rane,
Derby, Stebbins and others to plead,
for at the swinging of the lash by
Gantt the boys swallowed their old
crow with no outward appearance
of inward satisfaction.
How does the soldier element of
the Northern alliance movement
like the following language used by
Col. L. L. Polk, president of the
Southern farmers' alliance, in an
interview published recently in the
"I am CeL L. L. Polfc, of Confederate faa, pres
ideet of tke 8mtarn fanear1 alllaao at a salary

and Nebraska to elect Northern Democrats to
congress, who are also deeply interested in saving
the national credit"
If Snelling could only run for
office in Republican conventions as
easily as he does in Democratic and
he would be supremely happy. The
rapidity with which he can change
his politics for the occasion is only
excelled by the swiftness with which
he accepts any kind of an office
tendered him. His maw for official
station is only bounded in its elas
ticity by the statutes creating offices.
The more the offices the larger his
maw: it is onl a question of stretch
with George simply "how many.do
the statutes give me?"
Will George T. Snelling evince
his sincerity in his recent conversion
to the independent movement and
acceptance of the nomination for
county attorney, as well as show his
faith in his expected election, by
resigning his position as county
judge? A refusal to do so will con
vince voters -that be does not expect
to be elected tkt he is simply
and eittfttjalt tMyMtaenment ior
fnfam contingencies aaa combina
tions in the interest of the Demo
, cratic party, to which he is as
tightly lashed as was ever sailor to
f a skip's rigging.
Will the editor of the Current
kave the manhood and political
aesty (and he is not noted for
r either) to retract the scurrilous
article printed two weeks ago
over the signature UA Republican"

Republican candidate for the legis-

Sxellikg sajs that he was born
in the hills d Kentucky and be
lieves that he las good horse sense,
and that if he cannot fill the office
he has a good man to help him. Do
the tax-payes of Lincoln county
want to pay two county attorneys?
That "good man to help him" has
already shown himself to be a good
man to help himself when the conn-
ty has to pay for the help, lhree
hundred dollars for two days' work
in a single case is the size of that
man's love for the dear tax-payers.
Elect Snelling and give Gantt a
chance to get in a few more such
bills at everv term of court, when
the commissioners will cut down
the bills tnd Gantt will appeal to
the distnct court. Snelling will
then have to employ some other
"good man to fight Gantt s claims.
This would afford business enough
for court to be kept in session the
year round, the county paying all
the expenses, including the attor
ney fees. Our reform friends would
have a glorious time rustling the
taxes to keep the mill going.
The Current's assertion that L.
D. Richards owns no less than
twelve banks is a lie ou a wholesale
scale. Mr. Richards does not own
a single bank, but has an interest
in one at Fremont. He has for a
number of years been engaged in
the real estate business, and gave
that line his principal attention.
He it was who by untiring efforts
established the Fremont creamery,
the largest in the United States,
thjs promoting the dairy interests
of his section of country, and af
fording the farmers a ready market
for milk. He also has interests in
the Fremont foundrv. street-car
line, Creamery Package Supply Co.,
and a carriage company. Mr.
Richards is a self-made man, aud
came by his money not by skinning
the farmers and labonngmeu, but
by hard work and a judicious in
vestment of his earnings the same
line that any man who makes a suc
cess must follow. His struggles for
a living after he was eleven years
old, when his home was broken up,
show that he was not reared in the
lap of elegance and riches, and his
work on the farm, in a lime-kiln
and on a pile-driver is evidence of
a determination to press onward
and make a success of his life.
There need be no fear to trust the
management of the state to such
men as L. D. Richards.
We heartily commend to all
Nebraskans, especially our farmers,
the cheering and sensible words of
President Harrison during his re
ception at Topeka, Kansas.
Wherever Kansas is used just insert
Nebraska, and you have the case
exactly. In refering to the poor
crop the president said:

communities that no selfish inter
ests of the individual; no class in
terests, however entrenched, shall

can be made to prevail in all tne
states of the union until every man
secure under the law in his own
right, is compelled by the law to
yield to every other man his right,
nothing can shake our repose.
Cheers. Now, fellow citizens,
you will excuse me from the at
tempt at further speech cries of
"go on, go on" I beg you again to
believe that I am grateful, so far
as your presence here has any per
sonal reference to myself, grateful
as a public officer for this evidence
of your love and affection for the
constitution and the country which
we all love great applause. There
is some grumbling in Kansas, and
I think it is because your advan

MB. M'CANDLESS REPLIES.
Kimball, Neb., Oct. 15, 1890.
Editors Tribune, North Platte.
The Current of Oct. 11th contains
an article headed, "Corporation
Tool McCandless," and as I am
called McCandless it is my duty to
the party which honored rae by a
nomination for representative for
the Fifty-fourth district to refute
the statements made in that paper.
I never rode a mile on a pass in
my life; have no pass, nor ac
quaintance with railroad officials.
The same article charges that I
led the Banner county delegation
at Columbus and was shouting
there for Dorsey. At the time of
the congressional convention I was
in North Platte, making acquaint
ances through the courtesy of Dis
trict Judge Church.
So far as estates in Banner coun
ty are concerned I have been inter
ested in the settement of but one
estate in that county, which con
sisted entirely of realty; not a cent's
worth of the property has been
sold, nor can it be till an order of
sale is obtained from the district
court at its next session in that
With respect to attempting to
secure a commission as temperance
lecturer for Banner county, it is a
base and malicious lie. I refused
to join the league in that county
and never made overtures to the
leaders of the movement. The
entire article is a tiseoe of tke dir
tiest and most coatemptible fal re
hoods and emenated fron a rascal
who has an unsavory reparation
extending from North Platte to
the western limits of Nebraska,
a man who has disgraced the aoble
calling of the newspaper fraternity
in the recent past, ome from
whose lips lies trickle like dregs
from a leaking cask, a fellow
who was driven from .Hampton,
Nebraska, by enraged citiaens; who
kept Kia&bail countv in an uoroar
so bag as tke people permitted bim
to blight it with hi3 ruinous
scheeaes said scarrilous lies, who,
driven from tkat county came into
Banner and received the gift of a
newspaper outht from uis uncle
C. A. Schooley, who is chiefly in
terested in the town site of Harris
burg; and this same ungrateful
varlet, supposed to be working
sincerely in the interests of Mr.
Schooley, removed the newspaper
plant with the building belonging
to Mr. Schooley, one-half mile
north and started a town of his
own. Indignant citizens to the
number of one hundred took the
building in charge and conveyed it
back to Harrisburg, and the "A

a reply to robb.
1 have carefully read the article
in a late issue from Sidney D.
Robb of Rock Island, III. I shall
not endeavor to refute the state
ments of Mr. Robb in any way
further than to say that parties
writing from the interior of the
state of Iowa say differently as to
the interior. One thing Mr. Robb
proves is, that the distillers, brew
ers and their agents propose to
make temperance a failure as well
as prohibition if it lays iu their
power to do so. He proves again
without a doubt that the dis
tillers and brewers of the country
are a law defying, law breaking and
a non law respecting element.
That they flagrantly, wilfully,
maliciously and persistently break
the laws created by the will of the
majority of the people. . He also
proves that they break the laws
and by doing so injure the health
as well as the morals of the people.
The question therefore arises,
who are to rule, the sovereign peo
ple or the sovereign distillers and
If it is in the power of distillers
and brewera of the country to de
feat prohibition is it not in their
power to defeat temperance and
eventually to make drinking slaves
of the nation for the purpose of
increasing their gains?
In England at the present time
the brewers and distillers occupy
the leading position politically,
among the manufacturers of that
country. If they can defeat pro
hibition can they not do the same
in free America and finally control
the politics of the nation iu their
No one is to blame f oj the . pre
sent status of prohibition iu the
United States. Had the liquor in
terest not defeated the high license
law that was presented for passage
in the Kansas legislature in 1879
we would not be having this pre
Those whom the gods wish to
destroy they first make mad aud
then they eventually destroy them
selves. Slavery destroyed itself but
the evil was so great that over half
a million of lives were destroyed
Prohibitionists do not violate and
break the law but the agents of
brewers and distillers are openly
acknowledeged law violaters. Who
ever determinedly, persistently,
willfully, knowingly and milicious
ly violates the laws of a sovereign
state or the United States become
rebels as well as criminals. I be
lieve that is Mr. Robb's argument.
In Nebraska the Slocura law is
held up by the anti-prohibitionists
as the model law to regulate the
liquor traffic. The prohibitionists
oppose it. Therefore it is the duty
of the antis to support, maintain
and assist in the enforcement of
their ideal law not the prohibit
ionists or those in favor of the
amendment. Prohibitionists clai m
the law is a failure, therefore they
claim to be possessed of common
sense enough not to maintain what
they claim is a failure. That is the
position taken by th supporters of
the prohibitory amendment.
The prohibitionists of the United
States are not directly going to
overthrow the brewers and distillers
of the country, they will overthrow
themselves in some way by out
raging the growing sentiment in
favor of temperance. The indis
cretion and refusal to assent to re
form overthrew the Boubon king
dom of France. The refusal of
Charles, King of England, to assent
to reforms that were in progress
and demanded, overthrew the
throne and made Cromwell dictator.
A hundred cases could be cited to
prove those propositions.
Ju3t at the present time there is
a general agitation going on
throughout the country iu favor of
temperance. The people for tem
perance in the affirmative, the
brewers and distillers in the nega-
tire. The people must wis, fckcy
must, they cannot afford to' be; de
feated. Defeat raeana fiattMal
rain. Just how, and whea, tkat
must yet be determined. But re
forms never go backward. A rood
citizen will willingly sacrifice aad
does so, some of his personal rights
snd privileges for the good of the
majority. The brewers and tKs
tillers if they are good citiaens
should do the same, also, the saloon
ists and moderate drinkers.
Allowing the arguments of; the
opposers of the amendment to 1mm
true, "that prohibition hurts tid
iness" and allowing the stateateptj
to oe true, "that liquor js sold
everywhere in Davenport, Council
Blufk and Burlington" and-fchat
there existed a necessity for saloons
to increase the prosperity of a com
munity," then Davenport and Burl
ington and Council Bluffs should
be the most prosperous cities in the
state of Iowa. The census returns
do not show that such is the case,
But I have written enough on
this question, 'Mr. Editor." My
only idea was to clearly show what
Mr. Robb has demonstrated. "Let
us all be charitable, give the brew
ers and distillers and their agents
some credit for the 'terrMe wrong
to humanity that is being done.
The Supreme Ruler of the uni
verse made laws that mankind 'en
deavors to. reject, disobey, and vio

Analyzing the Alliance Vote
Omaha Deo. --
The total vote of Nebraska three
weeks hence will be about two hun
dred and ten thousand. With four
state tickets in the field, at least
eighty thousand will be required
for the success of the independent
nominees. No reasonable man,
familiar with the state of the cam
paign, will dare to predict'that the
alliance can begin to muster any
such vote. But a vote smaller by
many thousands might defeat the
Republican ticket. That, indeed,
is the only result the independent
j campaign may reasonably be said
to threaten to accompnsn. Ana
what would that mean? Simply
that a movement 'honestly under-
dissatisfied Republicans, had ended
by putting in Democrats into the
state capitol and by making a widp
breach in the line3 of the solid Re
publican west. The Republican
farmers who had helped to achieve
this result would have no cause for
rejoicing. They would rather have
multiplied their woes.
