NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA,
is centrally situated in tho triangular figure
bounded by lines drawn from Oinnha to Cheyenne,
thence to Denver, from thence to Martin ixriut.
It is 2'J1 mile fiom the first named city, 2i miles
from the f-econd, and 280 miles from the third.
Having a population of 4,000 people it is the head
quarters of both freight and pasen;er divisions of
the V. P. K'y Co., and is the home of about TOO
railway employes whose monthly pay roll amounts
to some $ 35,000.00. Almost 200 miles of irrigation
oanals are rapidly nearing completion, which will
bring into the highest 6tate of cultivation 150,000
acres of the mo-t productive land upon which tho
sun's rays f-hine. The citizenship of North Platte
1 that of the best afforded by the older state-", and
her people are active, progressive ami prosperous.
To the industrious, energetic home-seeker from
the crowded east North Platte and Lincoln county
preenN uuiisua advantages. Thousands of acres
or vacant govornmeut land, in cloo proximity to
tho-o already being brought under irrigation, may
be obtained by consulting the United States laud
office in North Platte. A letter of inquiry to "U.
. Register, North Platte, Neb.,"' relative to the
above will be courteously answered. Irrigated
f.-inuitif; is no longer an experiment, but lias
reached the point where it is acknowledged a
pre-eminently tho Fafest in all seasons method
of conducting agricultural and horticultural oikt-
ations. The salubrious and life-giving climate of
Lincoln county, where malaria is unknown mid
wher pulmonary troubles aro unthought of, is
another incentive to the location therein of tho-o

Oxi: of the first good acts which
senator-elect John M. Thurston
should attempt after he first peers
over the tops of his glasses at the
American house of lords, is to move
the adoption of a statute making- it
a felony for eastern journalists to
publish hobgoblin stories of the
destitution in Nebraska. There is
more actual suffering- and destitu
tion to-da- among- the miners of
portion'; of Ohio, than there

The new president of France, M.
Casimir-Perier, who was recently
elected for a term of seven rears at
an annual salan-of $240,000, has re
signed his official position. There
are thousands of populist states
men in America, who are wont to
refer with pride to the silvery con
edition of France, who would be
willing-, yea. anxious to make
martyrs of themselves for one
hundredth part of this salan
Gov. IIolcomi: has made a care
ful examination of State Treasurer
Hartley's books, at the request of
the latter, and expressed surprise
at the excellent condition of the ac
counts and of the treasury. The
demogogic alarmists who have re
ported that corruption was visible
in big- chunks in the state treasury
department, will now, or at least
should, draw in their horns and
acknowledg-e that they were simpiy
political fallacies which have been
industriously exploited throughout
the state since the drouth of 1890,
is impossible. It is to be deplored
that a great main of our citizens,
otherwise sensible upon most sub
jects, have formed the erroneous
opinion that it is the fundamental
principle of government todoevery-thing-
for the individual, without
hrst g-ivmg- the individual tlie op
portunity, yea impressing' upon
him the absolute necessity of first
doing- for himself. That it is a
high type of government's functions
to minister to the wants of her
citizens is true.and no one can have
a livelier appreciation of the state's
duties than the writer; yet he also
realizes the fact that in a republic.
where tlie people tnemselvcs are
the so.ereign government, it is the
iirst patriotic duty of the citizen to
try and do what he can as an indi
vidual. This is the acme of liberty
ana snouia oe instuiea into every
citizen of the United States. It
may be well enoug-h in a monarchy.
where the line of demarcation b
Lweeu tne ricn ana poor is so
strongly drawn that the individual
in the lower strata of society has
not an equal show for self-aggran
dizement with one of the aristocratic
class, and the latter is not bearin
his just share of the burdens of the
humble poor, then is it time for
government to intercede and assist
in the relief of those in need by
compelling those in favored circum
stances to aid those more unfortun
ate. e believe that our present
legislature would have adopted
some such measure, which would
have provided the temporary relief
needed; yet with the composite
population with which the state is
filled, many of whom have imbibed
the fallacious idea that it is govern
ment's first duty' to provide succor
for the citizen without any attempt
upon ins part to ameliorate Jus
condition, it is doubtful whether
our lawmakers will provide any
thing more satisfactory than a per
functory measure which will not be
of much utility. Educate the masses
up to the homely old adage of
root hog or die," and a republican
form of government will be much
abler to stand the burden of taking
care of its unfortunate citizens.

"Washington, .Tim. 17. Mr. Pugh
(Dem., Ala.) secured recognition soon
after tho senate met today to present
what he regarded as a solution of the
present lack of government revenue.
The senator varied from the usual cus
tom of introducing a bill by reading tho
full text of his measure with great de
liberation and then commenting on it.
The bill provides for tho immediate issuo
of 100,000.000 of treasury notes to meet-
deficiencies, these notes to be redeem
able in coin and to be constantly- reis
sued. It fnrtiier directed the coinage of
the seigniorage and the deposit of silver

John Mellex Thurston was
formally elected United States
senator for Nebraska bv the lejris
lature on Tuesday, for the term
commencing in March, 1S95. In
brief, his platform is for the people,
protection and bimetallism of the
honest sort; favors arbitration and
irrigation, and declares himself to
be a servant of the people of Ne
braska having "no pride of opinion
which would stand in the way of
giving full consideration to the
views, arguments and suggestions
of others." So mote it be.
It is time for the eastern ami
southern press to ring off on their
overdrawn fairy tales of destitution
in Nebraska. Unfortunately it is
true that there are many persons
A bill was offered m the Senate
Monday regulating life insurance
companies. It is modeled after the
Massachusetts law, providing for a
2 per cent tax on premiums, mak-
ing- tne state auaitor an insurance
commissioner, and entering into a
regulation of life insurance. It is
estimated that the law will bring
into the treasury 550,000 annually.
In the House there was a slijrht
disagreement about referring the
stock yards bills. An effort was
made to refer all of them to the
committee on live stock and grazing.
Tlie object was to prevent the bills
going to the committee on corpora
tions, on which are some of the
Omaha members. The bills how
ever went to tho committee on cor
porations. The great interest in
the relief question is shown by
numerous petitions presented ask
ing the legislature to enact some
The two democrats announced a
caucus Monday night on the sena
torial question. The populists also
went through the hollow mockery
of holding a caucus.
The following- are the provisions
of House roll No. 1 which was pass
ed by the lower house on Tuesday
with but one dissenting vote. "The
bill provides that in such counties
where relief is needed special elec
tions may be held for the purpose
of voting bonds not to exceed 2 per
cent of the assessed valuation. A
majority of the legal voters votimr
at the election will authorize the
bonds, which are to be payable in
ten years, optional in five, the in
terest not to exceed 2 per cent. The
proceeds of the bonds is to be ap
plied to the purchase of grain for
seed and feed. The grain is to be
sold to farmers at the actual price
to the county, with 7 per cent
added for expenses. The purchase
is required to sign a contract bind
ing himself to pay back the price of
his grain in five annual install
ments, the contract to remain a
lien upon the land until paid."

Mr. Pugh proceeded to urge the grav
ity of the present situation. It was such
that he was ready to surrender long con-1 Saunders
vietions in order to secure a rem
edy. "Thus far." said Mr. Pugh, "sen
ators have stood here and torn down. It
is easy to tear down, but it is hard to
build up. We have torn down until wo
have nearly tor n down tho country."
Mr. Pugh begged that the finance com

Mr. Sherman (Rep., O.), as soon :is
Mr. Pii:di had closed, rose with another
important financial measure. Its read
ing received the closest attention from
senators on both sides. The Sherman
bill provided for the issue and sale of
bonds under the provisions of tlie re
sumption act from time to time as the
deficiencies of the treasury require. The
proceeds to bo used wholly for deficien
cies ami tho bonds to run five years at
not exceeding : per cent interest. Tho
second provision provides that in lieu of
the foregoing the secretary of the treas
ury may issue coin certificatas in denom
inations of v-V), $50 ami $100, bearing 3
per cent interest, or-jnit tho certificates
in circulation through the treasury or
postoffice. The third section deals with
the deposit of bonds in national banks.
Mr. Sherman's bill was referred without
comment to the finance committee.
In presenting a report on the pension
bill Mr Gallinger took occasion to crit
icize the past utterances of Mr. Cleveland
as to the frauds existing in the pension
system. Ihe senator said pension ex
aminers wore roamingaroundtherountry
seeking frauds which did not exist. This
plan of prying and doing work should
be stopped at once. The pension ap
propriation bill was taken up
and Mr. Palmer (Dem., Ills) an

liuger against the pension office.

Lacour, president of the senate, the pre

called the senators and members of the
chamber of deputies to order at 1 p. m.
and the proceedings proper opened at
1:10, when the president read the arti
cles of tho constitution which applied to
the election of president. Then there
was a scene of considerable excitement,
deputios from all parts of tho hall speak
ing together and demanding to bo heard.
For instance, M. Henri Melichin (Revis
ionist) asked leave to address tho assem
bly. M. do Bandri d'Asson (Monarchist
and Revisionist), who as a result of his
interruptions, has repeatedly been tho
object of rigorous measures upon the
part of the chamber of deputies, de
manded to bo heard. But M. Challemel
Lacour did not grant M. Moilchin's re
quest, and believing that M. de Bandri
d'Asson was only going to make one of
his familiar affirmations of devotion to
tho monarchy vn I the papacy the president-
refused to hear him.
Ht-iilt or the First Rallot.
On the other hand M. Ch:Ulemel-Lu-
cour ordered that the first- ballot be im
mediately taken. This was proceeded
with amid considerable excitement in
the galleries of the great hall, which
were crowded to their utmost with
nobilities representing every profession.
M. Aveyron la Barthe (Moderate Re
publican) was tho first to deposit a ballot
in the urn. When the name of M.
Leon Mirmau (Radical-Socialist), who is
obliged to servo in tho army, although
he represented one of the districts of
Reims in tho chamber of deputies, was
called 111 a low voice, the Socialist-!
sprang to their feet and loudly protested
against his absence, crying: "Shame."
In spite of their protests, however, the
roll call was continued.
The official declaration of the result
of tho first ballot, the revision of the
list was as follows: M. Henri Brisson,
8;S; 31. Felix-Fanro, '244; M. Waldeck
Rousseau, 184; M. Caviagnaic, ; M.
Meline, 1: M. Diipuy, -1; Admiral Ger
vaise, 1; Marshal Canrobert, 1; 31.
Lonbo, I; 31. Rocheforf, 1; 31. Bour
geois, 1: want. 1. Total, ab.
Later, however, the following were
said to 1k the figures for the three lead
ing candidates: 31. Henri Brisson, 311;
31. Felix-Faure, 21 B; 31. Waldeck-Rous-seau.
3Iany of tho members of the national
assembly demanded an adjournment, but
m. inauemei-.Lacour proposed that- a
second ballot le taken. Soon after this
it was announced that. 31. Waldeck
Rousseau had retired in favor of 31.
During the balloting, when the namo
of Aye, was called, an Allemanist dep
utyshoated, "Down with the presidency;
let us have a dissolution. Stop voting!"
This was regarded as an indication
that the Allemanist group, contrary to
general expectation, voted against 31.
While the voting was in progress tho
friends of 31. Felix-Faure were actively
canvassing for votes and witJi apparent
success until a rumor was started that
ho was n Protestant. This had a bad
effect upon his candidacy, but a deputa
tion instantly approached and ques
tioned 31. Faure njxm the subject. The
latter, wno was greatly oxciteo, retort
ed: "No, I am a Catholic."
This denial reassured h: supporter.
The casting of tho second ballot began
at 4:40 p. m.
The following was the result of the
second ballot- so far as the leading candi
dates are concerned: 31. Felix-Faure,
430; 31. Henri Brisson, :(!!. There were
violent Socialist protests when tho ro
suit was announced.
31. Felix-Faure was born in Paris on
Jan. W, 1811. Ho was formally a ship
owner of Havre and was president of
tho chamber of commerce of that- town.
During the Franco-Prussian war he was
a chief of the batallion of the Garde
3Iobile, and led from Havre to Paris the
volunteers, who asited in putting down
tho commune. He was first elected to
the chamber of deputies as a Republican
in 1S-S1 and at tho time of the forma
tion of tho Gambetta cabinet of Nov.
14, 1SS1, ho became under secretary of
state in the then now ministry of com
merce and the colonies. He relinquished
office with tho other members of the
cabinet in January, 188'.!, but he was
called to fill tho same office on Sept. 21,
1883, in the last cabinet presideded over
by 31. Jules Ferry and resigned
with tbe rest of the ministry on
March 31, 18S-"5. 31. Faure was elected
to represent the Seine-Inferieure in the
elections of Oct. 4. 188."), and for the third
time became under-secretary of state,
this time in the Tierard cabinet. In tho
elections of Sept. 22, lS8!),hewas elected
to represent tho Second district of Harve
and in the Dupuy cabinet, which re
signed just previous to the resignation
of M. Casimir-Perier, he was minister of

sound Americans are only too grateful
for our criticism. 3Ir. Burns says he
will return to the United States next
