NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA,
is centrally situated in the triangular figure
bounded by lines drawn from Omaha to Cheyenne,
thence to Denver, from thence to starting point.
It is 291 miles fiom the first named city, 223 miles
from the second, and 2S0 miles from the third.
Having n population of 4,000 people It is tho head
quarters of both freight and passenger divisions of
the U. P. R'y Co., and is the home of about I00
railway employes irhose monthly pay roll amounts
to some $35,000.00. Almost 200 miles of irrigation
canals are rapidly nearing completion, which will
bring into tho highest state of cultivation U0.CO0
'acres of the most productive land upon which tho
sun's rays shine. The citizenship of North Platte
is that of the best afforded by tho older states, and
her people are ncUve, progressive and prosperous.
To tho industrious, energetic home-seeker from
tho crowded east North Platte mid Lincoln county
presents unusual advantages. Thousands of acres
of vacant government land, in close proximity to
those already being brought under irrigation, may
be obtained by consulting the United States land
office in NorthtPlatto. A letter of inquiry to "U.
8. Register, North Platte, Neb.," relative to the
above will be courteously answered. Irrigated
fanning is no longer an experiment, but has
reached the point where it is acknowledged as
pre-eminently the safest in all seasons method
of conducting agricultural and horticultural oper
ations. The salubrious and life-giving climate of
Lincoln county, where mal.-.ria is uuknown and
where pulmonary troubles are unthought of, Is
another incentive to the location therein of those
who are anxious to enjoy the good things of this
life as losg as possible. North Platte churches
and schools are above those of eastern communi
ties, the latter being ono of the few in Nebraka
permitting tho graduate thereof to enter the State
University without nn intermediate preparatory
training. The people of the commuuity gladly
welcome the honest, industiloti eateru citizon

The Nebraska legislature has
before it a bill which will prohibit
the sale of cigarettes within this
state under the penalt of a line of
$100. Similar legislation has been
adopted by many other states, and
for the health and welfare of the
rising generation of Nebraska it
would be well for the legislature to
take the same action.

The Cincinnati Commercial-Ga
zette has been gathering presiden
tial preferences in the south, and
finds the Republicans of Georgia,
Tennessee, Virginia, and South
Carolina are for McKinley; those of
Louisiana are for Reed, the leaders
in Florida are for Harrison, and
those of North Carolina are divided
between Reed and McKinley. The
south promises to be good cam
paigning ground since Governor
McKinley 's tour last fall and the
enthusiasm with which he was received.
It is alleged in New York that
there is a great breach between the
president and Postmaster-General
Bissell over the appointment of a
postmaster at Utica in that state.
The president insists on restoring
ex-Postmaster Bailey to the place
whence he was removed by the Har
rison administration, and the postmaster-general
is willing to com
mission anybody but Bailey, It is
alleged that the war is likely to
culminate in the resignation of Bis
sell. One would think that these
old chums would match nickles for
the place rather than break upon so
little a matter as the filling of the
Utica vacancy. , Great minds should
not go to pieces on so small a rock..

bill of this characfer should be

A bill regulating the practice of

legislature which is rather heroic
in its treatment. It provisions, at a

all the attornej-s in the state, who

Among the supplies for the relief
of the destitute which have been
received at this depot, was a pack
age containing a large supply of
smoking tobacco. The effect which
this would have on an empty
stomach or shivering form would
hardly be as salutary as that of a
sirloin of beef or a buffalo-skin
coat, but as a solace to an over-burdened
mind its effects are well
known. The large-hearted donor,
in sizing up the situation probably
had an idea that there would be
those who. being used to the seda
tive influences of the weed, would
be unable to procure the same, and
while others were attending the
physical wants he would act the
Samaritan's part by supplying one
of the superficial ones. Habitual
users of tobacco never feel more
destitute or forlorn than when
without the pipe or quid and the
means wherewith to procure them.
The Kansas City Times speaks
about the financial ability of Mr.
Bryan the leader of the demo-pops,
in the following way: "Mr. W. J.
Bryan, a statesman, objects to the
resolution authorizing the president
to buy gold with gold bonds on the
ground "that the secretary of the
treasury redeems United States
and treasury notes in the kind of
coin selected by the note holder."
whereas under the provisions of
the law he might elect to redeem
them in coin other than that se
lected by the note owner. In other
words, while the note owner de
mands gold, Mr. Bryan would have
the government pay him in silver, j
The effect of such an interpretation
of the law by the secretary of the i
treasury would be to create a pre
mium on gold. The only beneh'c- j
iaries of suc a result would be the j

find fine pickings in buying and

SKETCH OF HIS CAREER
West Virginia Congressman Rewarded
With a Place In the Cabinet For IIU
Services In tho Tariff Tight
In the House.
Washington, Feb. 2S. Tho presi
dent sent to the senate the nomination
of William L. Wilson of West Virginia,
to succeed Wilson S. Bissell as postmas
William L. Wilson is best known to
the country in connection with his re
cent tariff work in congress. Ho has
been a tariff student since he first en
sional life in 1882,
but it was not un
til the present
congress that he

taken little part in politics, except in be
ing a delegate to the Democratic na
tional convention at Cincinnati and sub
sequentiy an clector-at-large from West
Virginia. Early in 1S32 ho was chosen
president of tho University of West Vir
ginia. This would have fixed Mr. Wit
son's sphere of work had it not been for
a part' split at his home at Charleston,
W. Va., which was settled by the op
posing factious uniting on Mr.
Wilson lne campaign was a
hot one. Mr. Wilson finally won
by nine votes. Ho was then re-elected
to six successive congresses. Ho received
good committee assignments from the
first, going on the judiciary, appropria
tions and ways aud means. His experi
ence shortly after the war as a profes
sor ot law m Columbian college equip
ped him for the work on the judiciary
committee. In the four congressional eras
of recent tariff changes the Morrison
bill, the Mills bill, the McKinley bill
and the Wilson bill Mr. Wilson took a
leading part. He did much of the work
of constructing tho Mills bill, and he
aud Representative Breckinridge started
on a successful tour of platform speeches
throughout ihe eas.t, endorsing Presi
dent Cleveland's tariff revision message.
During the Mills-Crisp contest for the
speakership Mr. Wilson cast his lot with
Mr. Mills, and when Mr. Crisp Avon ho
designated Mr. Springer chairman of
tho ways and means committee. When
re-elected sfo.ik r, however, Mr. Crisp
named Mr. Wilson chairman of the
ways and means, and in this capacity
he framed tho measure which was the
ba.iis of the present tariff lav,-.
The fact the President Cleveland in
tended ro appoint Mr. Wilson to the po
sition has been known for several days
to the most intimate friends of Mr. Wil
son and in Mr. WiL.on himself. The
selection is one which the; president
made of his own motion, without anv
urging from Mi. Wilson's friends aud
largely in recognition of hi 4 services in
the tariff light in rhe house.

IIAYWA Rl TRIAL XKARING tiie exi.
Case Will Trohahly io to the Jury Next
Minneapolis, Feb. 28. Tho ending
of the drawn-out Hayward murder trial
is in sight. The defense concluded its
case today, the state will take two days
for rebuttal and the defense half a day
for surrebuttal. The addresses to the
jury will consume from two to three
davs and the charge part of another
day, so that the case will probably go to
the jury Thnrsday of next week.
Tho first witness today was James
Ward, and his evidence was intended to
farther impeach .that of M. D.Wilson,
tho liveryman. He declared Wilson had
told him that Harry Hayward conld not
be touched, as the man he had seen m
the baggy with Miss Ging was. not
Harry at all. Deputy Sheriff Warren
swore that Blixt. had said when asked
how he kept his foet from getting bloody
after the murdc had replied: "By keep
ing them ont of the buggy."
Blixt was sut for from the jail, and
pending his arrival his two statements
were read to the jury, with some omis
sions passed on by the court.
Shortly afterward the defense rested,
having secured a denial front Blixt of
tho assertions of Warren.

Pierre, S. D., Feb. 28. A resolu
tion was introduced in tho senate today
providing for the investigation of sworn
charges made by C. K. Lane, formerly
of Redfield, S. D., and now of Ohio,
against Judges Corson and Kellam of
the South Dakota supreme court. Lane
declares that ho has been deprived of
his property through a decision basod
on misrepresentation aud fraud, and
that the judges were aware that it was
so based when it was so made. The orig
inal case was an attachment proceeding
brought bv Boves Bros. & Cutler of St.

repeatedly made charges ba: little at
