Thefevaro plenty of good democrats in the distl-ict whose democracy is utiquestlonea,. that would have been an honor to the nomination and any one of whom wou d have honored the convention that should have nominated them 1 -, lie that as It mays Baker was undoubtedly the choice of th6 convention after Mr. Olson, according to all the reports now at hand. The convention undoubtedly would have had a right to endorse J. P. Dolliverj had It so: willed, and it might perhaps have done as well to do that as to do what It did do.- Be that as it may, Mr. Baker is undoubtedly entitled to a certificate 61 nomination from the officers of that convention, unless It could berulo.d off. the track by another convention duly called by the proper com,-. ' mlttee, and we dont see how that could be done' under the law. ,.'."'' The situation at Boone was .that Olson, a eood democrat and the choice of the convention, would not accept the nomination; that Breen, another good democrat, would have accepted and would have been nominated but for the veto of Duncombe, and that Lange was never once thought of. T.he. nomination of Baker was the only alternative suggested to the nomination of Breen. It was,, only th« matter of filling out the ticket. ; / :•• I j :• The Independent is right in suggesting that the convention would have done as well to have endorsed Mr. Dolliver, not that he represents democratic principles, we trust, but because he comes as near to it as,B!»&er does.. The one plank that goafcinto every populist platform is>16tolfree coiMage. That plank the convention . emphatically repudiated. On the financial question Mr. Dolliver represents the sentiment of the.;convention subr stantially, while Mr. Baker squarely antagonizes it. As to the tariff question the populist platform is silent. ,- v TV:e;:jh,ave only the action of the few • popuiists in congress' to judge from. Tf^sse have favored protection to local interests, and they can as correctly be classed ^ne way as the .other, i Their position^is not well defined on this 'great question Of the dayybut'they probably will claim, n6 v responsibility fox the senate bill. !_^ v . .,;' '' Considering these facts it is prising that intelligent and leading democrats should conclude thatthey might as well have Dolliver's name on their ticket. They know that he has had ample experience in congressional life, that he is energetic and successful in looking after the interests of the district and that he will work as bard for a.democrat as for a republican at the pension department. They share with his republican constituents in the natural pride that his well deserved fame and prestige inspires, and .they feel sure that, though he may not believe with them on every public ques- tiorii : he at least is not bothered with ••wheels in his head. Thousands of democrats in the Tenth district will take this view. They will regard Mr. Duncombe's interpolation as a typographical error and make the proper correction before they cast their ballots. 1 JESUS AT OANA. ' The EEPUBLICAN is of the opinion that the pulpit, which it feels wholly free to discuss, sometimes does injustice to its cause. It does so, in the opinion of this paper, when it strikes down a high ideal of Jesus and substitutes for it a low ideal. There is no apparent temptation in this day to do that, unless it be found in the opportunity afforded to seize from the wreck a new argument with which to bolster a pet theory, for even the infidel world of this generation believes in the sinless life of Jesus. It may not allow that Jesus brought to the wrld a new moral standard, but it yields reverent acknowledgement that, judged by the loftiest ideals of conduct, he was all his. life blameless. ' The Christian; pulpit cannot afford to be outdone jri the tribute it pays to Him who was tempt' ed as we are, yet without sin, But; it would seem to yield much, in declaring that against a standard pf mora,l con* duct erected riSany centuries prior to 'his coming, Jesus offended, Yet we knqw that drunkenness and gluttony were punishable under the Mosaic 'qp.de with death, and that the, prophets pro- ,npunced wpes uppn him whp gprehte neighbor drink and wade Urn dro'nkon . further than that, we know, thafpaul, ana the early teachers in general* laid dpwnth.elawp* Christian graft wt to plain wpr<js, That law required tfcat if wine ofiemJed a brother or made a brother tP offend, jt gfcpuld flpt be 4raQk whjie the woria sfcpuja stand, as tP drunkenness, tfcat wa? an excJuaing its YiPtim from the heaven. Now it *te in the get up jban a , and which tn ptinciple they derived from ^esus, himself $ tfilfc the MoAitn 'pr|a|W declare! thlt }esus and hiirootfier participated iti a drunken feast, and_,-ibat he ihtoked his divine power to perform ft miracle to, supply the dfilnken, revelling toulti- tilde wifh ISO gallons more of the same kind of wine that had produced the dfunken effect. We say ,th* modern preache't, thotigh we kh6* certainly of only one jf t^io has done -so!; We are sure that the modern pulpit in general makes no such ejthibition of Jesus. We are! sure, too, that this was a Wanton exhibition, which there is no hint in the record to justify, and which is a distinct invention.. It is an illustra* tipti of the.s^S ; remarkable freedom with the record to reassert that Jesus was "a gluttonous man and a witte- bibber," That was a charge ; thatwas made by the enemies of jesus in his day, and perhaps. ,we r should have expected it would have been limited to that time of bitter assault ; Wtien the cross was 1 thought to be nonetoo.^ood for him, But Jesus .himself ;v'djs.ppa34 of it. He said: "They say." iHehad just said that these same enemies had asserted tha| John the Baptist "hath a devilA' It4as sufficient to place this defamation of himself'in the same category of baseless slander, and there it rests,"fclong with the-accusation of blasphemy. It is well understood- bow/.difleiient from those of our own day were the conditidns in the times of : Jesus which made th^.customary frugal use of the mild win»s of Judea innocent because harmless, and yet the scholarship of; today divides on the question whether the ^/int of the miracle at|Cana was alcoholic in any degree. Some ministers who dogmatize seem to assuine, that it was not withia ev«n divin« power to create* good wine without, theusoof what we know as alcohol./ To do that, they appoar tov assume,; would be an impossible miracle; But that ought to be the limit of'dogmatic assertion. It should not be asked:that the modern congregation be compelled to listen to apocryphal additions to the simple story of Jesus manifesting his glory and compelling belief that he .was the son. .of God, nor electrified with descriptions of a scene in which Jesus acted the part at/.once of the maker and giver of intoxicating liquor for the use of intoxica,te'd'persons. The conditions of two thousand years ago were widely different from those which npw prevail, but there is no difference whatever between such; an act then and now, nor in Its moral quality, and an act punishable; in pur ,j|ay ; . even under the lax license statutes.of»many states, which punish the giving or selling of liquor to intoxicated persons,'we may expect to be saved frojSi ^having identified with the act of 'the sinless Jesus. If it were true that Jesus was indeed a learner, and .one who groped and stumbled in his way, and made his mistakes at first, these imputations would not be a fatal; indjcttnent. But ifJesus was all that .nobody would care what was said of him; nobody today would know that he ever lived. He would not have been the Christ. We can only regard him as one who knew all things and saw to the end—as one who came to bring the light and was the light and the truth itself, He knew in his earthly day more than any other who has walked the earth, what was to be the heaviest weight of the world's sorrow and from whence it was to come. So knowing, he would not, let us believe, set up in his example an ideal of manhood which coming ages would disown. »».im»m-.»ai..j>»-l J ,A. There is a very general movement among the republicans of this part of the state towards the adoptipn of the primary oleq- tion system in the nomination of county candidates. It is the fairest system Known, and is absolutely just to all, The party will gain everywhere by the adoption of this system, because it will remove every just cause for complaint of unfairness. It would be good party policy to adopt the primary system in Kossuth county. Congressman Eeed and V. B, Dolliver openod the republican campaign in.]V[aine at 014 Orchard last Saturday. ••Mr! Reed said that the Wilson bill wpul^ have decreased the' revenues of' the government 175,009,900, .. : annually, It was , found necessary to pM a'40 per cent tax on ^ugar, To relieve the party from the odium 'of reviving the sugar tax, the pop gun sugar bJU was con* ceived, which was ."a- pure farce, every' body knew, no matter how they voted. 1 The only valid act which the house per- fprroed was to fuf «lsb trusts wiih,..alm^sjti infinite wealth."' • Congressman' -ffijll estimates that under the new democrfttlc^tarlfl law sugar will sell ftt eleven poun4s for.if J, , .„ The Kansas . . ... . \vhftt farmers ca.r.e fpftth^ • increased price pf sugar as long asiney can self Wheat for 50 cents a bushel. •'~fF,y— The case aghast P»'of.

There is dispute .about the nomination of Baker, Lange declaring that ah informal' ballot was taken, and result not declared, ahd there.is a p|etty 'general .kick against the proceedings placing Lange 'on the ticket. All atoundlt is a bad mijt. The Humboldt Independent says that "tariff trickery may go down at Washington, but satisfactory explanations will nave to bo irtade 1 to thetr constituents '.by those domocratre' congressmen who desire to remain in public life." , . The Lange nomination for congress;Was the cheapest .of its kind that we ever priced. ' ; '••••• There is to be no fusion In the Sioux City district this year. The democratic nominee is fi.r.

Sun: It will be just four weeks tomorrow since Mr. Wilson read in the house of representatives Mr. Cleveland's letter declaring- to the house democrats that they could not accept the senate tariff bill without the abandonment of democratic principles and the betrayal of democratic pledges; without "party perfidy and dishonor." Yesterday the house democrats, with Mr. Wilson's consent and the implied approval of Mr. Cleveland, voted in caucus by the overwhelming majority of 130 to 21 to abandon democratic principles, as defined by Mr. Cleveland, to betray democratic pledges, as interpreted by Mr. Cleveland, to commit what be describes as party perfidy, and to incur the party dishonor, against which he warned them, A few hours later the bouse adopted the senate bill by a vote of 181 to 105. Des Moines Begister: No man in Iowa has never had more loyal or voted friends than the always and still genial Col.

The ,boys attempted to eS s cape, and the Turner boy succeeded in doing so, but Irwin McOall Was caught. After much effort, and with the Cassis* tance of Deputy Sheriff BrunsohVthe iieu succeeded in getting information from McCall .as to the identity bt his accomplice, Who was found in bed and ihfecholarsbp i tests W* Wheelet is attendinAo busihess ih a nutnbet of towns in Northern lott-a.

The boys confessed to ,ng stolen a rifle that Mr. -Tattle ...,__ ed from his shop, and a gold watch and Other things from. Johnny Jones; and ;he Turner boy 'Went with Deputy Srunson and found the articles for him; The rifle was buried in the ground id a' cornfield belonging tb J. E. Blackford, south of the Milwaukee track, and the watch was secreted in the Turner Wood-shed. It was not till a lute hour that the plunder was all gathered .in and the boys lodged in the county jail. The next day the youthful culprits were brought before Justice Clarke on the charge of petit larceny.' They pleaded guilty to the charge, and wfere committed to the keeping Of the sheriff with instruction to take them to. Eja& metsburg to receive, their sentence from Judge Carr. The sheriff took with him, besides the transcript of prO;- ceedings before Justice Clarke, the consent of the parents to their being sent to the: industrial school at. Bldbra. Judge Carr reluctantly sent them there. They were taken to the institution Satr, urday morning, Fred McCall, the fathe'r of Irwin, going with the sheriff, and returning home Monday morning. Since returning Mr. McCall has expressed himself as well pleased with, the institution and satisfied that the: best thing has been done in placing them in its charge. The boys had carefully planned their 'departure and they probably intended leaving on the night when they were caught. They were going in a boat up the river. The robbery of Johnny Jones was a well planned affair. He was induced to go swimming with the Turner boy, and while they were in, the river,- and behind a chimp of Billows, McCall sneaked up and took'the gold watch, a ppcket-book.aud other articles <ffom the boy's pockets. '' -.. . The conduct of the boys after their asrest and confinement convinced all that nothing could be done at home for their reformation or control. Their parents had no influence with them. The minds Of the boys had been debased by miubh reading of dime novels and their imaginations had been inflamed by sensational yarns,"in which robberies and other crimes were too common to attract much notice. The boys< are bright, and the McGall boy, the .writer personally knows, is especially so, and if he is not always a little gentleman it is riot for the reason that he • does not know how to be. He has been taught to dp right, and though he ran away once 'and has been wayward in some particulars, his parents, of course, never suspected what he was doing, nor what plans were forming in liis mind. The same doubtless can be said as to the parents of the other boy. It is understood that the boys will be kept at the industrial school until 21 years of age. PERSONAL NOTES. W. P.
