Those who expect to be candi
dates for office before the republi
can convention and desire to let
people know such, are invited to
send their announcement to this
office and they will be published
without charge. If this is complied
with the people will have an op
portunity to know who are and who
are not candidates.
Senator Murphy, of New York,
has presented our own and only
BillAUenta splendid $2,000 pony
It was an old writer who said "be
ware of the Greeks when they come
bearing gifts," and Nebraska's
cyclone senator should make the
application. By the way thisindi-
vidual is proving himself as thrifty
a fellow as the best of them, with
his congressional junketings ac
companied by members of his
family, presents, etc.
A curious decision has just
been given by the English courts
with regard to bank checks. Many
people regard a paper of this char
acter as a kind of bank-note, and
take their time about cashing it or
entrusting it to a bank for collec
tion. The British tribunals now
decree that the keeping of a check
for two days before depositing it in
a bank constitutes an act of negli
gence, which, it the Dank tails in
the meantime, debars the holder
from recovering" the amount from
the drawer of the check.
The Telegraph assures us that
"the rank and file will take a hand
in the convention this fall," which
simmered down means that the
Telegraph is the '-rank, and file"
and the editor has the "winning-
ticket" stuffed down in his vest
pocket. The Telegraph is playing
Jonah to the republican party, and
the chances are he will be spewed
out of the campaign prior to elec
tion. Reference to Colonel Hill's
past political affiliations proves
that his "stalwart republicanism"
is in a great measure propagated
Colonel, Ellingham labors uilder
the impression that harmony does
not exist within the republican
ranks of the county, but he will,
when the convention assembles,
find that all is as a love-feast. The
Colonel dwells upon this particular
theme with a view of making weak
kneed republican brothers, if any
such there are. believe that the
party is so badly split up that suc
cess is impossible. A ticket com
posed of clean, reliable and
competent republicans will be
nominated this fall, and no efforts
which the pops can put. forth will
defeat a single republican on the
ticket. The Colonel continues to
whistle to keep up courage,
The Tribune has ten dollars to
donate to the person who can name
a solitary individual who held a
last year or at any time during the
past ten years. If the editor of the
Era and ot the Telegraph think
that a caucus has recently been
held in this office they should give
the names of the persons who
attended, together with plausible
proof, and then call and get their
money. "Will they do it? Not much.
The report that a caucus had been
held is a barefaced lie, and was cir
culated through the fake Era solely
for political purposes. The Tri
bune is not a "rinsr" organ and
never was such. Several years ago
it refused to do the bidding" ot a
few self-constituted republican
leaders, who desired to form a
"ring" and as a result it has not
been in favor with them since. The
Tribune has no preferred candi
date for any county office, and is
content to leave the matter entirely
with delegates sent to the nominat
ing convention, believing that they
will select men -who will need no
defense as to the personal char
acter and peculiar fitness for the
offices for which they have been
A RECONSTRUCTED Iowa "gold
bug" democrat proposes this solu
tion ot our cufrency ques tion. "We
fear, however, it would not prove
altogether satisfactory to our pop
ulist lrethr,en: "Let the govern
ment receive silver bullion without
limit, at the market price, and issue
therefore silver certificates, payable
on demand in silver bullion or coin,
but always at full value ' as mea
sured in gold. These silverjcertif
icafces, always payable in full gold
value, would float side by side with
gold coin or certificates. They
would Tie of equal value and readily
interchangeable. The government j
would lnsp nn anv decline in the.
price of silver, and would gain by
any increase. The larger use of
silver, thereby, would probably
enhance the price. Any probable
loss from a rWUnp in the orice of
silver would be more than compel
sated for bv advantage ot a
f . - j
stable currency. So long" as it is
necessary to issue a credit money
let it consist of plain greenbacks
promises to pay; let them be re
deemable in either gold, gold certi
ficates or silver certificates
at the option of the govei
ment: or make them convertible
into a two per cent government
bond an inter-convertible bond
which may be exchanged for the
greenbacks again upon demand of
W VJ A.
the Holder. Such currency would
maintain itself without the aid of
any srold reserve. It would admit
of all the silver in the country being
used as money and made available
at once without waiting for its
coinage. ;lt would give us free
silver without giving the silver bul
lion syndicates a chance to sandbag
the government out of 100 per cent
on all the silver they turned over to
it" " "

lieutenant of the civil guard, who was
acting chief of police at Puerto Principe,
has deserted. He succeeded in getting
on board a pilot boat, from which he
was transferred to a steamer bound for

far as to request England to settle the
dispute in this way. It also states that
the press of Venezuela and all English
corporations doing business there have
also endeavored to ring about the same
end. Even the pope has interested him
self in the controversy and ofTered hia
The report closes with these signifi
cant words: "After having explained
all the measures taken by tho present
government in this important matter

impossible for them to do so without
