The people expect congress to
enact some measures that will be
beneficial to the country. Get
down- to work during the balance
of this" session, and let politic
Will the prohibition question
be submitted, is a question the leg
islature will have to decide this
winter. The opponents of the
measure have made up their minds
that submission cannot be pre
vented much longer, and the sooner
it is done, the better will their
chances be to defeat the proposi
tion. We invite attention to the tros
, pectus of the Omaha Republican
t:fl elsewhere in these columns. The
Republican has always been good
I rvbut we believe it is better now than
fever. It is especially strong edi
; 'tonally, and during the late cam-
vpaign no paper west of Chicago did
better or more valiant work for the
party. Every Republican in Lin
coln county should take it.
The yellow fever has about
abated in Florida. During the
epidemic there were 4,7CD cases at
Jacksonville and 411 deaths, accord
dng to telegraph reports. If the
tabove figures are correct, the dis-
ease was not virulent as usual or
I the mode of treating is more suc
cessful. At Memphis a few years
ago, our recollection is that about
I every fourth person stricken with
? the disease died.
It ' ,
v Congress commenced its session
on Monday, the President's mes
sage being delivered in the after
noon. Unlike the one of a year
; ago, this document is quite lengthy.
... i touching on all questions of public-
i i mi r t
interest;. j.ne nrs;; part is a remark
able departure from the usual style
of state papers, partaking more of
the character or a warning and a
lecture. Mr. Cleveland's position
on monopolies and trusts is good,
f and we hope congress will stop
.wrangling over petty affairs long
enough to pass proper laws govern
ing these subjects, if they can be
regulated by laws. In spite of the
'fact that he is going out of office,
many passages in Mr. Cleveland's
message are intended to make po
: litical capital, and may give rise to
measures for that purpose, thus
preventing needed legislation. He
j is not an old man, and possibly the
"1 presidential bee is still buzzing in
, nis bonnet. As his tariff message
-fwj! of a year ago made him the inevi
f table candidate of his party, he ap
parently hopes to make himself the
leader four years hence. Mr. Cleve
land is a politician, not a statesman.
A fellow of rather low order of
mind vents his spleen in the Tele
graph, his rhapsody being called
out first by a news item in The
. Tribune and afterwards by an edi
torial squ:b. Whether the item of
news is correct or not, we have no
means at hand to determine, but
as he does not controvert the state
ment we presume it is. The fellow
h is over-zealous. In his anxiety to
cast odium on the editor of The
Tribune, the whole burden of his
: . song, he insults 494,000 laboring
men about two-thirds of the order
who have withdrawn from the
V Knights of Labor, when he says
that their motives in joining the
f. order were mercinary, and who,
t. "after having their curiosity satis
fied and finding they could not use
it for their individual interests left
in disgust" and thpt the order k;has
lost none of its usefjl members."
The 256,000 have purged out the
"vicious element," the 494,000. The
order of Knights of Labor was or
ganized for a good purpose to ad
vance and protect the interests of
the masses of laboring men. But
if the charges that have been made
and are unrefuted are true, the or
der has fallen into the hands of
managers who are apparently more
intent on protecting their own sel
fish interests than those of'the
laboring men. No other inference
can be drawn from the proceedings
of the Indianapolis assembly. Pow
derly dictated the election of officers,
and he has almost autocratic con
trol. That this proves The Tri
bune's somewhat inelegant aphar
isra is a logical conclusion from
Dakota will make two good states
and there ought to be little delay
in having them admitted. In pop
ulation, wealth and all that goes to
make up established society, such
as should be the basis of statehood,
Dakota has been fully up to the
highest standard 'for years. Five
years ago she had outgrown the
machinery for territorial govern
imejtt, and ever since her citizens
Have been suffering from the cramp
ing and narrow tendencies of a
government which they could have
small control. The courts were in
efficient to enforce the laws, and
enterprise was ruined or retarded
thereby. Immigration was checked
because the American prefers to
make his home where he can have
a voice in the government under
which he lives, and it is "but a
meager, if any, voice that the dwell
er in a territory has in the execu
tion of the laws under which he
must live. If South., Dakota had
been admitted to statehood four
.years ago there is little doubt- but
that its population, would have now
been equal to the present popula
tion of the whole . territory. Inter
It is estimated that last year the
south lost by forest fires nearly
$7,500,000. The total number of
acres burned over according to the
New Orleans Times-Democrat, was
more than double the whole area
of land under cultivation in. Louisi
ana, or considerably over 6,0u0,000
acres. And what makes it worse,
it seems that the destruction of
most of this timber was due to care
less ecs or reckleness. The Times
Democrat reports that ciicnlars ad
dressed to leading lumbermen,
asking them what were the causes
of tne fires, establish the fact that
"the fires were nearly all due to
'possum and coon hunting and the
turpentine business." Following
the 'possum and the soon is doubt
le:s a charming pastime, and of
course the turpentine business is
not to be -unnecessarily interferred
with. But there is such a thing as
possums, coons and turpentine
costing too much. Tne forestry
congress, which is now in session at
Atlanta, may be expected to devise
measures calculated to protect the
forests of the south from these and
other evils that threaten them.
Last Monday morning Mr. Thos.
Finlon was driving out with his
team and wagon and seeing some
cattle on his place he thought he
would go out and run them off.
He drove his team over near where
the cattle were and got out of the
wagon to drive them off. A steer
with one sharp horn concluded he
wouldn't go and showed fight. Mr.
Finlon took off his cap to scare him
but instead of being scared the
steer ran at him knocking
him down and in. the scuf
fle he ran his horn into Mr.
Finlon's cheek making a very ugly
wound. He finally succeeded in
getting to his wagon which was
the only thing that saved him from
getting killed. Dr. Harris was
called and dressed the wound. Tom
says he thought his cheek was
pretty hard, but it wasn't a circum
stance to the old steer's horn.
A writer in Vick's Magazine tells
how to water flowers without either
wetting or soiling the surroundings.
She says: "I cut out strips of tin,
which is supplied by tin cans, and
bend them into the form of cones,
varying from one to two and one-
half inches at the mouth, and m
length being two-thirds the depth
of the pots, the larger size of course
being for the larger pots. I plant
these cones, one in a pot, at the
side a little distant from the end,
with the seam turned toward the
root of the plant, and the top sunk
to the level of the earth. It is an
easy matter to introduce water from
the nozzle of a sprinkler, with no
danger of slopping and the earth
is not hardened as it is where mois
ture is applied extensively."
A couple of true lovers have been
found in Knoxville, Tenn., and
their married life ought to be a
h?.ppy oue. Joshua Sbipe and
Margaret Douglass were lovers
thirty-five years ago and became
engaged, but the mother of the
girl and the sister ot Mr. bhipe
both objected to a union of the
families, and the youug couple
waited waited for thirty-hve years
until one bf the irreconcilable ob
jectors should be removed, which
was done the other day by the death
of Miss Sipe the aged sister. Mrs.
Douglass then withdrew her objec
tion, and the couple were married.
The Chattanooga Commercial
says that the Southern States are
making rapid progress in the de
velopment of diversified industries,
in building cotton mills, wood
working establishments of all kinds
and that this winter will see greater
activitv in the industrial develop
ments than was ever before known
in the south. Quite true. The
south sees that the Mills bill was
not its best friend, and she has
more confidence in the protective
policy of the party she calls her op
ponent than in that she has been
wont to call her friend. One of
the best evidences of the south's
indorsement of political doctrines
is the enthusiasm with which she
goes to work under them. Inter
Major Burke, of the New Or
leans Times-Democrat, admits that
he is a protectionist, and hes al

men of the south, and is now doing
for Honduras what the south has
refused ,to allow such men to do
for .her--establishing schools for
mechanical training that will give
the country a race of men able to
earn their own living, and not de
