The iear creature has probably been

goat according to Hoyle,
The expenses of the government
exceed its revenues three million
dollars a week, which is about a
million worse than it was a few
months ago. In a few months, not
to exceed two months, savs an au
thority, the proceeds of the bond

'issue of bonds will be necessary
.Where will it end?
Akd now it develops that Charles
Hscules VanWyck is engineering a
cksfme from "Washington for f u
8HMT in Nebraska between demo
crats and populists. As a capital
citj correspondent facetiously puts
it, "It is rather pathetic, however,
to see the old man 'with one foot

.Whest ; Willy Waliy Astor dis
covered that he had dropped $200,

he merely remarked that if the next
year's business showed a deficiency
of over $50,000 he would conclude
that there had been some misman
agement. Our populist friends can
now figure upon what it will cost
.them to establish an influential daily
in Omaha.
Axr Omaha swain has begun an
action in replevin against a loan
company to recover the engagement
ring that he had given his intended

A Washington dispatch' says
Cullom, of Illinois, has a substitute
for the Wilson bill, in which he
proposes a tariff commission of nine
to report next year, and in which
the measure of protection to Amer
ican labor shall be the difference
between American and European
wages. Any kind of a substitute
would be acceptable, remarks an
exchange. It couldn't be made any
worse, as the Wilson bill is purely
a measure in the interest of for

The election of Galusha A. Grow
. a as congressman-at-large from Penn
sylvania by a majority approximat-
. ing 175,000 is the greatest political
tidal waye that ever swept over that
state, .ttepublican leaders expected
I t a majority of 100,000, but are nearly
stricken dumb with the immensity
of Mr. Grow's majority. In fact
. sj . .Pennsylvania has been heard from
J: fast as Ohio was heard from last
7- vtall when McKinley swept the state
, as a candidate for governor, and it
is certainly very poor consolation
the democratic party can get from
Ohio and Pennsylvania as it looks
forward to the presidential contest
of 1896.
According to the press dispatches
J. Sterling Morton offers as an ex
cuse for appointing a republican to
' the position of meat tagger at $60
per month, at one of our Nebraska
packing houses, that there was but
only one applicant for the position
on file in his office, and that the
man was immediately needed upon
' . a requisition from Dr. Salmon,chief
of the animal bureau of the agri
, -cultural department. It is doubt
less true, in a great measure, that
perspiring democratic patriots are
looking for larger game. In con
clusion the sage of Arbor Lodge
casts some reflections upon the
president by intimating that if the
- national democratic party can sur
;?, vive the appointment of Gresham
and Wayne McVeagh the demoe-
racy of Otoe county, in slang par-
lance, has no "kick" coming.
Hoke Smith has catered to the
,v interests of Senator Vilas and his
partner, John H. Knight, by re
" versing the decision of his com
missioner of the general land office,
" Lamoreaux, in deciding a contest
case up in Wisconsin against thir
- "tv-twa homestead applicants, and
in favor of. tbe Keyston Lumber Co.
The case had been heard by com
missioner Lewis A. Grroff, under the
Harrison administration, and was
decided in favor-of the homestead
ere.Not content at the finding, the
corporation applied for a rehearing
of the case -when the present com
missioner was seated in office. That
individual decided just like his pred
ecessor. Still dissatisfied an appeal

A Kentucky firm handling wag
ons and farm implements writes
the Fish Brothers Wagon Company
of Racine, Wis., that owing to the
hard times the firm will -bave to
omit placing its order for wagons.
The letter closes as follows: "We
of the south have been trying for
thirty years to get control of the
government. We succeeded at last
and have held it for about six
months, and now if you repub
licans will take it off our hands vou
are welcome to it."

In reviewing his public career as a
statesman from Nebraska,for which
he has been paid twentv thousand
round dollars, we know of but two
or three instances wherein he has
been a benefit to his constituency,
and that was in sending out pack
ages of seeds. The nearest ap
proach he ever came to beiug :
statesman was when he accepted
free passes on railroads. Butte Ga

The savings banks of New Tork
state give a remarkable record of
the effect of the vear of free trade.
During 1893 the amount of money
withdrawn was $34,518,091 in ex
cess of the amount deposited. As
compared with the prosperous year
of 1892, the deposits of 1893 were
524,000,000 less, and the withdraw
als were $27,000,000 larger, thus
showing an aggregate loss, between
the two years, of 51,000,000. The
whole of this loss fell upon the
wage earners who usually put their
savings away on deposit, but who,
under the free trade administration
lost $51,000,000 in 1893 as compared
with 1892. The greater part of
the loss occurred during the last
six months of the year, when times
were hardest because of the dread
of free trade. The loss of $51,000,
000 in a single state reflects the ef
fect of President Cleveland's love
for "the plain people" through his
rob and ruin policy of prostration.

says an exchange, than it has been
for many years. In the year 1869
Easter Sunday was on the 28th of
March, and that the earliest for
more than fifty years before. It
can never come earlier than March
24th, and it has only been that
early once in a hundred years. In
repiy to this another exchange says:
A glance at the record will show
that some times erroneous items
find their way into newspapers. In
1845 Easter came on March 23d,
and again in 1856. In 1868 Easter
came on April 12th, and in 1869 on
March 28th. These calculations
ake in thirty-eight years, or two
cycles of the moon, including the
years irom 1842 to 1880. Easter
comes on the 25th of March this
year and comes on the 23d day of
March in 1913.

TnE following from the Nebras
ka Farmer is in line with republi
can principles and worthy of con
sideration. The republican party
it i
believes in protecting nome manu
facturers, thus giving employment
to labor and thereby creating a
home market, which is always su
perior to the open markets of the
old world. The Farmer says:
Wheat is at a low ebb; it is selling
at a price below the cost of produc
tion, that is, so far as the wheat
lands of the United States are con
cerned. Our labor saving machines
that have gone out into foreign
lands have made it possible to pro
duce wheat in other countries at a
cost that about shuts us out as a
factor in supplying the foreign de
mand. To a man up the tree the
situation is about this way: We
must begin to look after the wants
of our own people. This is an ar
gument in favor of thesugar pro
ducing interests of America that
cannot go unheeded. If it is true
that the foreign demand for our
cereals is drifting away from us,
then it is time we are studying the
commercial chess board a little that
we may not jump in the dark. The
sugar question as we lopk-at it is a
live issue. - ;

It is an evident fact that whenever you hear a man
howl he is hit, and hard too. You have no doubt read
the papers the past week and by the language used you
can readily see that-some of our would-be (if they could)
competitors are very sore. What is tho reason? Trade
is not coming their way as fast as they like it, and they
think to force it by opening war on us. Wo, as a rule,
pay no attention to such slush. It is a good advertise
ment for us and it costs us nothing. But we must let
our voice be heard that you may know that wo are still
living. We wish to say that we do not have to go out
on the street and take a man by the collar and pull
him into our store as we know some have done. We do
not have to resort to this means to get custom. The
people know where they get bargains and who their
1 friends are and come to us. Look bore, did you ever
hear tell oLthe like, that because an article was sold at
auction at a. sacrifice that it was not as good as if it had
cost the regular wholesale price? Nonsense. The peo
ple are not all crazy. Sudh slush puts us very much in
mind of a little dog running out at a big dog and howl
ing and barking and prancing around, making all the
noise, but look whon it comes down to business; where
is your little dog? He ain't in it. That's tho way with
our competitor, h-e a-i-n-t i-n i-t. Then again, note he
signs his name and adds "wrecker of high prices." Now
who is tho wrecker of high prices? Is it not a fact that
when we came to town two years ago last August we
.knocked tho bottom out of prices, and have kept on
slashing them ever since, hence our success. Tho idea
of a little one-horse shebang striking the town some
two years later and after a few weeks making a big fuss
.and hurrah and claiming all the glory and honor of be
ing the leading and only one that put the prices down.
We are here, and hero to stay, and the people
know that they run no risk in buying nn article of us,
as our would-be competitor would have you believe that
fcr you do, but should nn article prove not worth the value
paid for it, we make it right. Now about the auction.
ST We do buy goods at auction when it is a nice clean 12
g stock, and lots of them, too, and are proud to acknowl-
edge it, for this and this alone is the reason that we can
undersell all. This is what hurts our competitors, but
it is what makes the consumers happy. So this is why
the competitors are down on us and the reason the con
Burners are with us. Ard this is what wo like, a3 it is Z3
g"" the consumers we are trying to please.
Some weeks ago you no doubt read of the failure of ZZS
- the James H. Walker wholesale house, one of the largest 335
in the world. On the 7th of this month 8G50,0G0 worth
. of dry goods was put on sale to be sold to -the highest
fcj bidder. Our buyer is thero, has been there all the timo,
picking up bargains. They will be put on sale in this 35
' city. Now won't these goods be all right, or aro they 13
not good because they woro bought at auction? Watch 3
z us, call on us, trade with us. We will make it an object
to you.
