The press in this senatorial dis
trict has many good words to say
for Captain Akers, the republican
candidate for senator. In fact
every oncacquainted with the Cap
Italn admit him to be a brainy man
and a strong candidate.
Judge. Neville did uotrfigure as,
prominently in the pop convention
at Broken Bow ' as some expected.
It is to be regretted that a nonentity
like Kem should be chosen in pref
erence to men like Judge Neville.
No one is better pleased with the
renomination1 of Kem than Matt
Daugherty. The latter gentleman
is after the former's "hide," and he
will get it with the head and tail
intact it will be a complete skin.
Wheat, and there is very little
of it, is selling in the local market

is less .than one-half what the dem

The republican county central
committee will hold a meeting in
this city next Saturday afternoon.
A matter of much importance will
come before the meeting and a full
attendance is desired by the-chairman.
Rosewater yells: "Save the
republican party." Well, it will be
saved, and that too by kicking out
of its ranks such men as Rpsey who
for years has stood with knife in
hand ready to strike candidates
who were nominated in violation to
his dictation. Rosewater's policy
of rule or ruin has been brought to
an abrupt end. The pops are wel
come to this would-be dictator.
JijdgS HdiicoMB, the populist
candidate for governor, may poll a
strong vote in western Nebraska,
but he will full ten thousand short
of defeating Tom Majors in the
state. Holcomb polled a larger vote
for supreme court judge than
he will for governor.
'Two years ago the Omaha Bee
supported Crounse for governor
and fought Majors for lieutenant
governor; and yetfthe latter received
3,000 more votes than the former.
This is the full measure of the 4ih
flooence" tlie' Bee wields in 'Ne
braska politics. It is better to
have Satan against' you' than for
The nomination of Dr. R. D.
Harris for representative is satis
factory to' rthe republicans" 'of'- the
district and ? he ' will receive their
united support! In addition to
this he will receive democratic and
populist votes on account of his
popularity and fitness for the posi
tion. Dr. Harris is all right and
will be a winner.
The republican convention in
Omalia last week put up a strong
ticket: one that will be elected by a
handsome majority. The npmina-,
tions were as follows: Governor,
T. J. Majors; secretary of state. J.
A. Piper; lieutenant-governor, ,R.
E. Moore; auditor, Eugene Moore;
treasurer, J. S. Bairtley;" commis
sioner, H. C. Russell; superinten

Corbett; attorney general, A. S.
The republican platform which
was unanimously adopted at Omaha1
favors bimetallism and demands
the use of both gold and silver as
standard money. It adheres to the
doctrine that all railway lines are
subject to regulation and control
by the state, and demands "such
legislation as will insure fair and
reasonable rates to the producers
and consumers. It denounces all
combinations of capital organized
in trusts or otherwise to arbitrarily
control the action of trade and rec
ognizes the rights of laborers to
organize and use all honorable
means for the benefitting of their
The failure of John E. Evans to
receive the nomination for secretary,
of state is a keen disappointment
to the many friends of that gentle
man, and especially those of 'this
city. Starting in with the second
highest vote, victory for Mr. Evans
at one time seemed to be assured,
but an apparent trade between
other candidates seems toliavebeen
made and there was a landslide to
Piper, the successful candidate.
Though defeated in the convention,
there is not a "sore spot" on Mr
Evans he is not the kind that
sulks. During the many years Mr.
Evans has been identified with the
party in Nebraska he has been an
earnest, heart' worker, and this he
will continue to be during this
campaign and for many years to
come. He appreciates the hearty
support given him from many coun
ties and he trusts, these same dele
gates will unite with him and all
other republicans in rolling up a big
plurality for the republican ticket
from top to bottom.

Joe Beeler has frequently inti
mated that he was a populist for
revenue only, and the avidity with
which he snapped at the nomina
tion for county attorney is conclu
sive proof of his intimations. No
one believes Beeler is competent to
fill the office for which he is a can
didate, and the ballots cast for him
will come from those who would
vote for the devil were he on the
Western Nebraska did not re
ceive the recognition in the repub
lican state convention the deserved,
but the disappointment will not'
deter republicans from pulling off
their coats and,, working fpr the
ticket Populists who are predict
ing coolness toward the candidates
by the republicans of the western
counties ..should not . allow their
imagination to run riot. This is
the year western Nebraska is to be
everlastingly redeemed from popu
list misrule and demagoguery.
Another evidence of "reform" is
displayed by the publication of
Treasurer Buchanan's semi-annual
statement, the printer's fees for
which will 4 be cool two hundred
and fifty dollars. Under' republi
can administration of county affairs

As was predicted in these columns
last week,. Kem has. been nominated
by the populists of this congres
sional district. Inmaking his
campaign. tw,o years ago Kem
apologized for his record in con
gress the proceeding two years by
saying that' it took one term for a
new member to get "onto the ropes."
Assuming that this is true, we are
now anxious to hear him tell his
constituents what he has done since
he "got onto the ropes." The fact
is Kem has been ' nothing greater
than a "seat warmer" in represent
ative hall, and 'The Tribune

show wherein he has rendered, any
