The recent Bepublican Stateconven

1. The republicans HofNebraskal most
heartily endorse the profession of principles
formulated by the NatlanaLRepubllcan con
vention at Chlcago.Jind pledge their uuwav
erlng support to the candidates there nomi
nated. 2. We-afflrm.that.the'doctrlno of national
sovereignty Is tho fundamental pilnclple
upon which the perpetuity of the nation
rests, and that the principle of home rule as
enunciated by tho democratic party Is but
the cautions expression of the Calhoun doo
trlnes of state rights; Is revolutionary In Its
oharacter and destructive to tho unity of the
and wholesale robbery of the franchises of
tho republican oltlzenslof Alabama, by the
democratic natty, officials, surpassing In
magnitude and effect any of the crimes in
former efforts of that party under the Tweed
plans In New York and theMlssIssIppl plan

country to the most earnest ondeavor io.de

4. We have considered "what Lee and
Jackson would have done if they were
alive," and have determined to employ our
best energies In preventlnglthe seizure of the
national government by their living com

5. We congratulate the peoplejof the state
upon Its rapid lncrease'of population and
wealth, and upon the good measure of pros

upon the rapid rebuilding of our material

ommendation made by Gen. Garfield In his
letter of aoceptance, urging upon Congress
tho speedy Improvement of the Missouri
River for barge navigation.

The Republicans of E. B. Wash-burne-'s
district, Chicago, have brought
him out as a candidate for Congress.
Our latest news from Ma'e is to
the effect that Plaistedthe fusion can
didate for Governor, is elected by
about 1,000 major ty; that two out of
the five Congressmen aie fusion, and
that both branches of the leg'sture
will have Republican majorities.
Inter Ocean: Yermont, in tne heav
iest vote ever polled in the State, gives
a Republican majority over all oppo
sition of nearly 26,000. The Republi
can vote is 48,223, an increase of 11,000
on the vote of 187S, and an increase of
3;600 on the laoge vote of 1870. The
Democratic vote is also the largest
ever polled in the-State, and shows an
increase of 625 on the vote for Govern
or in 1876. While the ratio of gain in
the Republican ranks is 7 per cent
the ratio in the Democratic- ranks is
about 3 per cent, Tho Democrats
boasted that they would be able to cut
.down theRepublfcan majority to 15,000,
while the Republicans clafined that
their majority would reach 25,000.
In an article on the day of election
the Philadelphia 'Times said: "Less
than 20,000 Republican majority in
Vermont to-day would be a fearful
wet blanket to. the party and an in
crease of the Republican majority of
1876 would be equally chilling to tho
Democrats, while the regulation ma
jority of Presidential years would be a
drawn, battle. The battle of tcday
will be-a sqnare fight between the- two-
great parties-, and the measure- of ma
jority will measure the ebb or flow of
the Republican tide: on the national
The- Democratic Party did not aid in Sup-
pressing the Eebellicra.
One of the most unfounded asser
tions now being made by Democrats is
that the Democratic party put down
the rebellion. The truth is, that party
did not even Jielp the Republicans to
put it down. That party opnosed the
war from beginning to the end, and in
no instance did it aid the- friends of
the Union. That party in Congress al
ways voted against supplies and ap
propriations? for the- army, and in its
national platforms invariably opposed
the measures, and' every measure un
dertaken by the government for the
suppression of tho rebellion. It is
true that here and there in various lo
calities and States there were individ
uals who called themselves Democrats
who went out to fight their brother
Democrats, but in so doing they vio
lated the principles of their party, the
chief one of which promulgated by the
then head of their party, Buchanan,
was that there was "no power in the
J government to coerce a State." It is
unnecessary to quote from their plat
forms, in which they declared the war
a failure, in the darkest days of the
rebellion, and threw every obstacle in
the way of success for the Union. The
people do not forget the history the
Democrats have made the old people
do nt,,and the young-may read it, for
it is recorded and will stand for all
time that the Democratic party inaug
urated the rebellion, nourished it, and
supported the rebels. The Democratic
party both Xorth and South did this;
and there is no getting, around nor
evading the charge that we make, be
cause history makes it, that the Demo
cratic party instead of helping the
Republican party to wliip the rebels
and save the Union, took the other
side and aided the rebels and favored
the dissolution of the union. The
Democratic party cannot blot out its
damning, record, as some: would be
pleased to do.
Inter Ocean: There is no common
need that the government can remedy
so easily as by furnishing the people
with a fractional currency that can be
sent through the mails. We do not
want to lose our silver pocket money,
but we want a paper currency too.
Major Powers,, the accomplished; Chief
Clerk of the Treasury Department,
has made a suggestion, which, while
open to criticism and improvement,
is deserving of careful consideration.
He psoposos that there shall be a spec
ial issue of legal tender one and two
dollar notes, which shall be printed on
their face as they now are, but that the
back shall be dividetfinto-four separate
notes, each, with the obligation of the
gove.ament. The plan is that these
notes shall go into circulation as a
whole, and. that persons who desire to
use fractions of a dollar may. cut
the notes, and that the parts shall ul
timately find the'r way to theRedemp
tion Bureau. It is the present custom
of the Treasury to redeem parts of a
legal-tender note for their proportion
The Globe suggests that Chmch
Howe pay attention to his election first
rather than speakership of the house;

book "first catch the hare." -Lincoln
Tot a month previous to our county
convention the Globe daily had some
d'-Ly fling at Church Howe and the
Advertiser. We na;d little atten
tion to it because it never in a single
item told the truth, thus huiting no
body do wn this way, but rendering itself
"idiculous by its manifest ignorance of
what it was tailing about. We-supposed
that after the convention it would
have sense enough to "hold up" and
not place itself inaoiagomsm with the
Republicans of Xemaha county, but we
see it is not disposed to da so, but wiU
try to defeat M-. Howe, one of oui
Republican nominees. Now we will
inform iho Globe that Howe will "catch
the hare." And ihat long-eared enlarg
ed prototype of the jack rabit who
edtis the Globe, and Drays far in Mr.
Howe's rear, can't help it.
In 1876 Hayes carried Maine by 16,
3S3 majority over Tilden. In 1S78
there were tlijeo- candidates for Gov
ernor. Connor, Republican, received
56,519 votes; Smth, Greenbacker, 41,
404; G'arceion, Democratic, 27.S72. The
combined vote over Conner was 12-,
757. In 1879 the Republican voio fo
Governor S8.7CG; the Greenback: vote
was 47,590; tho Democratic voce was
21,668. Combined opposition to the
Republican it will be observed was re
duced f com the vote of '78 to a majo "
ty of only 492; This yearit seems that
the fused opposition have ga:ned a l't
tle on Governor, leaviog the Congress
ional representation as it was, and the
Republicans a large majority in the
legislature. State elections ;n Maine
are unsertam as to majo it-es, but for
President she casts her electo-al vote
for the Republican ticket. GarGc'd is
more certain to carry that State than
was Hayes. There is no doubt about

ent democrat of this- city, having once
been elected city solicitor on the demo
cratic ticket, has pronounced for Gar

that some fifteen or twenty more dem
ocrats of this city have said" they should
support the republican ticket. W. C.

former mayor of that city elected on
the democratic ticket, has come out
for Garfield and Arthur.

The following is an extract from tho
letter of a man who was. formerly a
Democrat and an officer in an Indiana
regiment, but now a resident of Merid
ian, Mississippi, to the Indianapolis
"I feel it my duty to write to you
tliis- letter in the hour of our desperate
need. There is no free speech here.
Everything is under the control of the
old secession leaders. I was
ordered to leave Pelahatchie (Miss) a
few days since because I remarked
that Garfield is a good man. I was
informed in Butler, Alabama, that if I
was not a Democrat I must leave the
town. I was in both places on busi
ness. The old Thirty-fifth
know me and I ask the boys to vote
the way they fought. I will never
vote another Democratic ticket so long
as God spares my Is fe."
Every intelligent Democrat must
know that free speech, free expression
of opinion and free, fair elections are
not permitted in any of the Southern
States: and every intelligent Democrat
who claims, as we often hear, that
there is as much freedom in those
States as in the Novth. knowingly and
wilfully utters falsehood. It is the
strangest thing to us that Democrats
who are apparently honest and truth
ful upon other matters, will stand up
in the face of truth as clear as the noon
day sun and wontonly lie about the
condition of the people in the South.
They certainly know that a cause de
pending on the most palpable false
hood, while it may meet with tempor
ary success, must be ultimately over
thrown by the honest masses who have
been deceived and wronged.
Here is more testimony from an Ar
kansas paper, the Helema Yeoman, of
"The man who th'nks he can lead an
opposition agaust the organized De
mocracy of Phillips county is not only
presumpt:ous but ei cremely bold. He
will requ:re a body guard equal to the
whole number of voters in the Demo
cat:c ranks, and a Cibni'tar in his rear
on tho day cf election."
What does such a wanirg mean?
It certainly cacnot be construed to
mean that every man, every party, may
freely present the'r claims and prin
c'ples'to a free and untraraeled constit
uency? No, the man who dares ad
vocate anything but Democracy will
not only be "prestempttious but extreme
ly bold" and Iho presumptuous fellow
who is so bold as to claim h's rights
as an American c!tlzen to be a Repub
lican or a Greenbacker, and advocate
his principles, will need a "Gibralter"
to back him up. Ca Tying out the un
democratic teachings of the Yeoman,
which is ihe Souihe-a idea, plan and
practice eveiywheie is how the Green
backers in Arkansas were defeated on
the 6th inst., by more than forty thous
and majov:ty. Weaver had been down
there, and there was real danger that
the State would elect tbe Greenback
Governor, hence such ''presumption"
was nipped in the bud, and a fair elec
Here is another rich morsel for De
mocracy, taken from the Memphis Av
"We do not advocate (any longer) the
use of the shotgun or the bull-whip,
but we do hold that tbe white or black
Republican should be regarded as a so
cial leper to be shunned, despised and
hated that, in future, he should re
ce;ve no favor or recognition that the
'ast farthing should be relentlessly ex
acted, and that all kindness of manner
toward him should cease."
Is not this a p--etty advocacy for a
leading city and Scate paper. Tho Av
alanche is to the city of Memphis anil
tbe South what tbe Inter Ocean and
the New York T'.viine are to Chicago,
New York city and tbe North. What
would the readers of those latter pa
pers in the Republican North think if
they should prmtsuch inhuman recom
mendations? They would regardit as
insult to the:r loyalty to a Republican
government, and their education which
has imbued them with principles of
justice and the sacredness of every
man's right to think and vote as he
pleases. But the Ark lanelie, lacking
such ennobling principles, touches a re
sponsive cho d in tho hearts of its
thousands of readers who also lack
such pri-ic'pres, holding the success of
party above all human, lawful or con
The following is an extract from the
speech of an Alabama Democratmade
in a joint discussion with Randall, the

rule, and you must stand bv the great
democratic paty, for a so!;d south
will now give us the ent're control of
tho general government, and we can
redress all wrongs."
The Democratic crowd present ap
plauded these senseless remarks, and
tho greenbacker was discurbed aad
compelled to leave the platform before
he had finished h's speech.
And so we might go on and fill our
columns with such extracts, proving,
beyond all question, what the leading
Democrats of the South preach and
their followers practice.
The Democratic paper and the Re
publican paper of Staunton, Va., who
heard Wade Hampton's speech agree
exactly upon the sentiment taught and
ve?y nearly upon tho eact words he
used; yet a'ter it was seen that the
sneech was doing bad work in the
Nortfe. Hampton denies that he uttered
any such words or senvraents. The
deoiaTnow is hunting the cause South.
So Hampton is disgusted and declines
to make any more speeches for the ed
ification of nothe ! audiences.

By order of the Republican State
James W. Dawes, Ch'n.
Landers is giving tho people of
Indiana Democracy straight from the
shoulder. 'A Cincinnati Commercial
correspondent furnishes the following
Franklin Landers, Democratic can
didate for Governor of Indiana, deliv
ered a speech to the citizens of Perry
county (Ind.,) at Connelton, on Satur
day,; 28th ult, in which he said: "When
Gen. Hancock is elected he will carry
the Government back to where it was
when the Republicans got it." As he
will no doubt attempt to revise his
speech, like Hampton, I give you the
names of responsible men who were
there and heard him utter the words:
James Winchell, William Weather
holt, Graham Polk, B. Sanders, James
Weatherholt, all residing in Tobins
"When the Republicans got it" what
did they find? They found 4,000,000
slaves and a quarrel on hand as to
whether slavery sliould be confined
within tlio original limits or spread
over the free soil of the North. They
found a bankrupt treasury and shin
plasters, called money in every State
and a "bank note detector" on every
counter; and the hardest times among
the people they ever saw. They found
well what's the use of bringing up in
itemized detail the accursed condition
of the country in the days of Buchanan
who gave the Democratic reign its fin
ishing touch? We don't want the gov
ernment carried back to where it was
when the Republicans got it. God
save the people from going back, but
let progress, and forward be the words.
Democratic editors and orators are
attempting to answer the charge of in
tended unsettlement of the war issues
on their part by calling attention to the
fact that the reconstruction acts' have
been sustained by the Supreme Court,
and that that tribunal is largely Re
publican in politics. But how about
the Democratic Supreme Court pro
posed by a bill now pending before
.-Congress, introduced by Mr. Manning,1
of Mississippi, a rebel Brigadier? It
provides that the Supreme Court shall
ensist of twenty-one Judges, instead of
nine as at present; that they shall be
divided into three co-equal sections of
seven each any one section to be ea-
paoie or aeciuing any matter not in
volving a constitutional question, but
that on all constitutional questions the
whole twenty-one shall sit With tho
twelve new Judges to be appointed by
a Democratic President if elected, the
Court would consist of fourteen Demo
crats and seven Republicans. It is
very easy to imagine how such a tribu
nal would decide, any of tho war ques
tions. It would not require a wholo
year for it to fulfill Congressman
Blackburn's prediction, aud wipe from
the statute books every vestage of war
legislation. This is tho feast to which
the election of Hancock invites us.
How the Oopporhs&ds Expect to VT i.
Washington, Sept. 10. It is rumor
ed that ageuts representing Messrs.
Landers and Enclish have been recent
ly in Baltimore making arrangements
to transport largo cargoes of her thugs
to Indiana, for use and safe return at
the October election. It is said that
several thousand will bo distributed
throughout the State for work where
theV are most needed. This is to be
the method in which Mr. English's
money, which he is repotted to claim
is ample for the state, will be expended.

States, be they Republicans or Demo
crats, reflect upon the recent utterances
of two distinguished men, both repre
sentative citizens. Comment is uunec-

A few days ago, and previous to the
Vermont election, the New York Her
The Vermont Republicans are san
guine that they will hold their own.
The proper criterion forestimatingthe
result is their majority in the Presiden
tial -election of 1S76, the last occasion
which brought out a full vote. The
majority of Hayes over Tilden was
23,838, and in the State election which
preceded the Republican majority was
about the same namely, 23,785. If
they should fall considerably short of
this to-day, after the vigorous canvass
that has been made, their loss will be
interpreted as a proof that General
Hancock's brilliant record as a soldier
and a patriot is reducing Republican
voters from their party allegiance, and
if it is potent to produce such an effect
in Vermont it may be equally potent
in the doubtful States. But if, on the
other hand, the returns of to-day's elec
tion shall show that General Hancock
has made no impression, or nest to
none, on the Republicans of the Green
Mountain State, it will be evident that
he has nothing to rely on but the prop
er voting strength of the unrecruited
That was before the election, and
the Republican majority is larger than

Hancock is a weaker candidate than
That is what we have believed all
along. Tilden was a statesman, h&had
a "barrel,'" he was a great managerand
the Independents believed in '76 that
he was really a reformer, as he claimed
to be. Hence his large vote every
where. Hancock, on the other hand,
is not a manager, not a statesman, not
a reformer. He is only a puppet in the
hands of the rebel managers. Oregon
and Vermont have voted. Maine will
follow next week. It will then be seen
that the nomination of Hancock was a
very weak one. He gains no Republi
can, no independent strength, and does
not poll his full party Yote.

They think he was a good General, but
they know that it was the rebels who

The Boston Advertiser, Republican,

It was openly claimed thaj if Han
cock was nom.nated the usual Repub

reduced by thousands, and after Han

crats who talked as if he would win
10,000 men from the Republican ranks.
That was in the early days of the Han
cock boom. There is no such talk now,

was fairly opened. Hancock's name
has proved powerless to strengthen the
Democratic party in the State; on the
other hand, the spectacle of the solid

THE nUNTER'S PARADISE!-
Spirit Lake, Iowa, Sept. G. Thi3
is one of the loveliest spots in America,
and certainly to a hunter the seek-no-
further, the "happy hunting ground" of
his dreams. Tnero is game here in
abundance. Chickens fly up from the
ground at almost every step, and hun
ters are flocking here from all direc
tions. There are only two camps
large ones of any importance Cran-
dalls Lodge, at the head of the lake,
and Camp Alexander. The campers
at the latter place are almost excln-'
sively hunters, and such jolly times as
they have. All the tents are festoon
ed with ducks and chickens, and their
bones lie all a'ound in pathetic little
heaps. It is certainly marvelous the
amount offish and game tired boys
can get out side of. The fishing is fine.
The lake is full of splendid bass and
pickerel and one has oniy to drag his
line to pull up a fish. " Tne scenery
about the lakes is del'giful ; there are
two of them Spirit and Okoba ji soi
arated only by a narrow strip of land,
just wide enough for a caiTiageto cross,
and one of the loveliest views I ever
saw can be had from the middle of
this natural bridge, looking up Spirit
Lake. Asido from the lakes, how
ever, the "scenery" consists of wide,
unbroken stretches of grass and sky;
not a slope, not a tree, not a gleam of
water for miles and miles.
The country is improving rapidly
and fast filling up. There are livelv
towns and villages all around.
the crop or SPRING WHEAT.
Chicago, Sept. 10. The Commer
cial Bulletin presents returns from
210 counties in the north west as to the
condition and amount of the spring
wheat crop. They say it seems evident
that the cultivation of winter wheat is
coming into greater fafor xi the north
west, especially in the older agricul
tural districts. Tne larmers appear
also to have enlarged their corn area at
the expense of spring wheat. The
yield of the latter is, however, greater
than in 1ST9. The old crop is sold very
close, much closer than usual. The
total yield in the states of Illinois,
Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas,
"Wisconsin, and Dakota Territory, reck
oned on the basis of returns recieved,
is 147,731,000" bushels of spring wheat,
against 120,460,000 last year, and the
average per acre is laT.oST against 12.13
in 1S79. Theaferage is 1.40 greater
than in 1870'.
