STINSON & Co. , Portland , Maine. THE editor of the Judge has been sick. He was choked on a chestnut. THE Rock Island wouldn't be a bad road to have in this community. There are those who confidently expect its advent. WESTWAKD the "Q's" star of em pire takes its flight : "It is rumored to-day ( Friday ) that a party of B. & M. surveyors were un loaded at Price Station , Utah , Thurs day night. " [ Junction City ( Colo. ) News. POLITICALLY speaking , it were bet ter for the man of unsavory repute that a millstone be hanged around his neck and thafc he be cast into the midst of the sea , than to be a candidate for of fice. For presently the press , that eternal and invincible conservator of public and political morals , sniffs his turpitude afar off , and lo , in the twink ling of an eye , the mask of apparent respectability is torn aside , and the candidates character is shown to the | world in its true inwardness. AN exchange figures it out tint Eus- sian diplomacy is very like the old doctor , who was great on fits. The doctor's plan was , when treating a pa tient afflicted with some unknown mal ady , to throw him into fits , then to ap ply his infallible "fits specific. " So Russia in her recent treatment of Bul garia. Precipitating an abdication by Prince Alexander , ( who by the way has again been enthroned ) she heroically applied her remedy for anarchy , with temporary results of a most satisfac tory character. i To the careful thoughtful observer , the "drift of things , " the indications of the times , must be painfully manifest. And certain it is that "the fact is daily growing upon public comprehension that this country is governed by its wealthier classes. Powerful corpora tions and classes select the men who make the laws , and the laws are conse quently invariably made ir. the interest of the rich and powerful. And more than this , through the judicial machin- i ery these laws , already constructed in j these interests , are still further warped ' and twisted in that direction. " That this is the state of affairs is possibly' ' not less notorious than the complacen-1 cy with which the people view it. Were it not for the ignorance and compara tive helplessness of the masses , their supine inactivity would be well nigh ' criminal , in this regard. 'The man who is fearless and bold and honest in his championship of the rights of the common people , is the center of a mer ciless , combined attack until he is driv en ignominiously to private life. Cor porations and the beneficiaries of the protective system unite to keep in con gress a class of men upon whom they depend to enact such laws as will en rich them at the common expense. They have an abundance of money to serve their purposes. " And that they use of their abundance to good advantage , is carelessly hinted at upon every hand. While the god of mammon's handiwork is everywhere traceable. LYTLE BROS. & CO , DEALERS IN GENERAL I @BJ ,3 , ,3a IRON AND WOOD PUMPS , ETC. , McCOOK AND BENKELMAN NEBRASKA. .
