IT would seem as though there would
be no lack of candidates for congres
sional honors , this fall. The "woods is
full of 'era. "
JUDGE DAVID DAVIS , the giant of the
independents , died at his Bloomington ,

VAN WYCK is taking a "short cut" to
immortality. lie is having his "phiz"
displayed in the society journals , through
the medium of the bewitching wood cut.
THE question now agitating the news
papers of the district is , "Who shall be
our next State Senator1 And inciden
tally from what county shall he be
THE royal family has been peremp
torily ordered from France into exile.
This arbitrary expulsion is simply an
evidence of the government's weakness ,
and adds strength to the royalist cause.
THE legislature of this state , this fall ,
will be republican to the core , and the
man who expects to receive the support
of the republican caucus must be simon
pure republican beyond the suspicion of
a Van Wyck.
THE Democrats have settled the
question in national finances , which ex
isted under Eepublican rule , namely ,
"What shall we do with our surplus ? "
The Democrats have disposed of the
point in a characteristic manner. They
have swept the surplus out of existence.
WE understand that C. S. Harrison ,
of this place , has consented to the wish
of his friends and will enter the race
for congressman from this district.
Mr. Harrison is a man with much ability
and strength and with a clean record.
He will make a hard fight. Republican
THE Helmet avers that Eed Cloud
has "more fast horses ( but they were
not entered for the June races ) than any
other town of its size in the state. ' '
The lied Cloud "boys" will remember ,
however , that McCook's phenomenal 3-
year-old WAS entered for their June
races , and that the other fellows hardly
realized that they were in the race.
THE TRIBUNE rises to remark that
Congressman Laird is loaded for such
small game as Commissioner Sparks
and Chairman Cobb of the committee
on public lands. On Monday , Mr.Laird
'ouud it incumbent upon him to again ,
metaphorically speaking , wipe up the
ioor of the house with these worthies.
And it is related that after ' :0ur Jeems'1
lad done with the yclept commissioner ,
little was left of him , officially , but a
'ew old rags and an attenuated assort
ment of bones While Cobb was so
aadly roasted by our congressman , that

THE annual camp meeting , held un
der the management of the Nebraska
State Holiness Association , will be held ,
this year , on their grounds at Bennett ,
Neb. , commencing August Oth , 1886 ,
and continuing ten days.
THE town of Akron , Colo. , was visit
ed by a wind and hail storm , Monday
evening , which blew down a number of
buildings , besides breaking scores of
window panes , pelting the crops into
earth , etc. This chilly breeze , coupled
with the "gold" excitement , has bestir
red Akron from centre to circumfer
ence. Oh , these advertising dodges !
WHILE candidates for county and
state offices seem innumerable , there
seams but one patriot who wishes to
give Laird a chase for congress. The
field is left , so far , to Gaslin and the
present incumbent. The man who
grapples with Laird must recognize the
fact that he battles with one of the best
politicians in the state. Holdrege He-
llox. G. L. LAWS , the popular regis
ter of the McCook land office , is in the
lead for Secretary of State. The Re
publican Valley will go solid for him.
No worthier and stronger man cnuld be
selected from the republican ranks for
that honorable position. Mr. Laws has
filled every public office so far with
credit and ability , and is known as one
of the most polite and accommodating
of public servants. He is dear to the
hearts of all old soldiers as he served
his country faithfully and left a leg on
a southern battle field. His chances
are very favorable. Blue Hill Times.
THE opposition to Senator Van Wyck's
return to the senate becomes stronger
and more bitter as the time for electing
his successor draws on apace , and the
election of members of assembly will
perforce thereof receive unusual atten
tion all over the state. Granted that
Van Wyck has ability. But this broad
commonwealth contains others of equal ,
if not far superior ability , who can rep
resent this progressive and growing state
with greater credit. Others who are
less tainted with the scurvy of dema-
goguery. Give us a true blue republican ,
tins fall , and relegate"to private life the
lofty tumbler and political acrobat. A
return to old-time political honor and
integrity will work a world of good for

Some music , ana a ball ,
A partner for the lanciers ,

Now , won't you , that's a dear ? "

A richly furnished room ,
A servant sirl who comes anon
