The democratic state central committee

Secretary Cluurman
A delegate convention of the Democrats of the
state of Nebraska is called to meet in Xincoln
on Wednesday April 22 1S9G at 2 p m for the
purpose of selecting sixteen delegatesto the na
tional Democratic convention which meets in
-Chicago on the 7th day of July 180 and for the
transaction of suh other business as jnay prop
The Democrats of Hock county have
elected delegates to the state conven
tion which is held the 2 th
The greatest menace to Democratic
success is not found in the republican
party but in Democratic dissensions
Chairman Holt of Brown county
has called the Democrat convention to
meet in Ainsworth Saturday the 18th
to elect four delegates to attend the
State Democratic Contention to be held
at Lincoln on April 29th
The completion of a 10000 ton
job of steel rails for Japan by the Ed
gar Thompson Steel Works of Pitts
burg is says a large eastern paper
an event of extraordinary character
in the industrial development of this
country It shows that we are at last
able to compete with England in the
markets of the Orient And all this
happens during a Democratic adminis
tration
The birthday of Thomas Jefferson
was fittingly observed in many of the
larger cities Mondaj One hundred
and fifty three years hare passed since
the father of Democracy was born
and no name on the American roll of
honor shines more brightly than that
of Thomas Jefferson no man deserves
more honor than he no party has a
- sounder basis than that given to
ocracy by him
Some men allow hero worship to
take possession of their souls without
fully realizing the fact or knowing the
true worth or title of their hero To
illustrate At a recent public gather-
ing we listened to a fine eulogy on
General McKinlev and heard Ma-
jor Manderson highly praised The
titles had to be used some way or other
and as general implies greater honor
i than major that titleTTOasy given to
jIcKinley
WOOL TO SELL
Thr imaginative faculties of the
calamity howlers are beginning teffiag
as is shown by the absurd story that
England is importing large numbers of
sheep with the view of competing with
Australia Argentina Texas Ohio
California ilontanaand New Mexico
for the control of the American wool
market In proof of- this story they
say that the British imported last year
10G5 470 sheep of which 308094 were
sent from Argentina alone But they
fail to state that these sheep were in
tended principally for consumption or i
that last year the United States ex
ported 500171 head of which number
414914 were shipped to Great Britain
or that these sheep were sold for over
7 a head invoice price m this market
That is quite a contrast to the price at
whiclvthey wort sold in Detroit about
two years ago 1 per head In ad
dition to this last year the United
States exported nearly 6000000
pounds of wool While American
sheep and wool can freely enter -England
and other European countries it
is essential that there should be no
restoration of the barbarous duties of
the McKinlev tariff
erly come before it All demoeratia citizens of and nurses under the rules of the
U1C SUlie wiuiouL respect iu jkisl jiumicu wau
ciations or differences are invited to unite in
sending delegates to this convention Cherry
and neighboring counties are entitled to -dele-sates

The Democratic party has always
been active in the matterof civil ser
vice reform and now another lot of
government situations have been put
under civil service rules Mr J A
Carroll the efficient issue clerk at this
place recently received notice that all
clerks assistant clerks property and
issue clerks store keepers and other
clerical positions at Indian agencies
have been placed in the classified ser
vice and that those now holding the
positions named will net be removed
by the department except for cause
Another order places supervisors of
Indian schools day school inspectors

ftarch 4th a iaw affecting timber
rculture entries was approved by the
President The law is in substance as
follows
Be it Enacted That timber
culture claimants shall not be required
in making final proof to appear at the
land office to which proof is to be pre
sented or beforean officer with
in the county in which the land is sit
uated but such claimant may have
his or her personal evidence taken by
a United States Court Commissioner
or Glerk of any court of record
The law is in our judgment a good
one and will save non resident holders
of timber culture entries many hund
reds of dollars The testimony of the
witnesses will be taken in the same
manner as formerly but the testimony
of the claimant may be taken before
any of the officers named wherever he
may happen to be The land office
officials here are to -be congratulated
on formulating and securing the pas-sage-Of
the law
The leaders of political parties and
menholding public office should at all
times be prepared to take a decisive
standon one side or 4he other of all
public questions When a proposition
is new there is some excuse for hesi
tancy but when they are approached
on the subject of finance we like to
hear straightforward answers like the
following giveriby Chairman Harrity
of the national Democratic committee
1 am in favor of sound money and
opposed to the free unlimited and in
dependent coinage of silver as pro
posed by the tree silver people Furthermore-
I believe that those whotfa
vor sDundmoney will constitute a ma
jority of the next Democratic national
convention Compare that answer
-with the replies of numerous states
men and leaders whose names we
will in charity withold
The republican leaders find it diffi
cult to geta good runningmate for
McKinlev This difficulty arises from
the fact that they want a first class
i marifor second place when they have
alhird class man for first place If
McRihleyis nominated they will find
iit no small task to put a tail on their
iiticketthafc is npt larger Sban the head

The Cherry County Independent has
been purchased by Bobert Good who
has changed the name of the paper to
The Valentine Democuat making
itihe only paper of any kind in that
town which js the -county seat The
first isue of the paper reached our ta
ble this morning and is bright and
newsy If there is anything in a name
Mr Good should continue the publica
tion of as good a paper as the one just
received WymoreDaily Arbor State
And they say there is nothing in a
name We know from experience that
there is We thank the Arbor State
for its kind words but cant help ob
serving that Dodd must have been
looking at the Moon when he said ours
is the only paper here We wouldnt
say such a harsh thing ot our contem
porary
The Democratic county convention
which meets here Saturday should se
lect good sound honest men to attend
the state convention men who will
represent the county and act according
to the will of the people as expressed
at the cohventiou regardless of which
wing of the party is recognized The j
