Bogota is the capital of the United
States of Colombia, which country
held Panama in subjection till tho rev
olution last week. It is situated quite
a distance inland, and in a mountain
ous country. All tho several states in
the federation, of which Panama was
one, were ruled from that pity. The
trouble, therefore, means striking at
the very seat of government.
A telegram to tho News tells of tho

Under tho glaring headlines "Du
plicity of Jtidgo Harrington Facts
Come to Light Which ProVo He Ac
cepted a Tree Railroad Pass," the Al
liance Grip of last week had the fol
lowing to say in the most prominent
part of tho paper. The following let
tcr received from Judge Harrington is
self explanatory and no comment is ne
cessary. Tim IIukald editor called
Judge Harrington's attention to the
Grip's charge by request of republi
cans of this city who supported him
and desired to know if the charge made
by tho Grip, which is as follows, were
"Prior to the recent election Judge
J. J. Harrington issued a personal let
ter to many of the voters that ho was
under no obligations to any of the rail
road companies not having received
any free transportation and that he had
paid out in railroad fares during the
past four years about 1,200. Never
tho less it is a fact that he accepted
and still holds Burlington Route pass
No. 747 for tho year 1902, hence it will
be seen that the judge was not sticking
very closely to the truth in sending out
his appeal to the voters."
In reply to tho Grip's charge the
judge writes ns follows:
"I am in receipt of your letter of the
nth instant enclosing a clipping from
tho last issue of the Grip charging that
I am tile holder of a pass on the Bur
lington railroad. I regret that when
the campaign is over falsehood must
stilt bo met. I trust that the editor
has been imposed upon and has not
been prompted by malicious motives.
L never have traveled on a pass in my
life upon any railroad. When I was
first elected tho Burlington rail toad
sent me a pass and I promptly returned
it. Notwithstanding this refusal the'
have sent to me in common with other
judges since that time annually a rail
road pass. These passes have been
also promptly tcturncd. But my dear
O'Kccfc there is a very simplo way for
these pcoplo to prove this charge if it
is true. Any man who 1 ides on an an
nual railroad pass has to sign his name
on a slip of paper every time he rides
on the trajn. These slips give the
number of the pass and the signaturo
of the man who carries the pass and
these slips are sent to the headquar
ters. Tho Grip man is closo enough to
the Burlington railroad to get posses
sion of one of these slips if such a
thing exists. Now, I will give him
JSiooo if he will produce one of these
slips bearing my signature, and, waiv
ing the question of my signatiue even,
I will pay him Siooo if he can prove I
ever traveled a single mile on a Bur
lington railroad or upon any other rail
road on a railroad pass. These facts
are well known to the ticketv agents
thtoughout this district from whom I
regularly purchase them.
I have always been a constant advo
cate of the doctrine that no public of
ficial should accept a pass or other fa
vor from any corporation. I do not
claim that a public official should bo
prejudiced against these corporations.
He should receive no iavors from any
piospectivc or actual litigant. He
should be' absolutely free to act in each
case free from all outside influences
and guided only by his conscience, his
judgment and his knowledge of the

The Union Pacific railroad is going
to try a new scheme is the manner of
disposing of its unsold lands. In fact
it is going into the colonization busi
ness with millions. It is said tho rail
road intends to open for settlement a
part of the 'railroad lands in western
Nebraska, Kansas, eastern Colorado
and all of Wyoming. Possibly normal
sums will be asked of the settlers, but
tho plan, in the main, is practically
the same as that adopted by Jamas J.
Hill in the northwest two years ago,
with gratifying success. The Union
Pacific still has 4,500,000 acres open,
Senator Dietrich of Nebraska has
been called before the federal grand
jury at Omaha to answer to the charge
of dealing out postoffices in violation of
the postal department and .for his owri
pecuniary benefit. Tuesday afternoon
the grand jury began the investigation
of the charges, which have been spread
broadcast, to the effect that Postmaster
Jacob Fisher of Hastings was required
to give his note to Senator Dietrich for
1,500, prior to his being recommend

Clyde Miller, a young man who was
to have been married to Miss Anna
Syangler of Nebraska City backed out
at the last minute after the guests were
all present and the minister waiting.
Miller refused to assign any reason for
his act, and jt is supposed ho simply
became nervous when the hour ap
proached. Tho young woman whom
ho was to have taken to thorltaris
prostrate over the affair and it is
feared that she may lose her mind.
