Ex-Senator Ixgalls says that
thejantl-trust law was formulated
by Mr. Edmunds, "the most prac
caldegislator of the age," and the
man. that tramed a similar law that
'strangled polygamy to death."
Therefore, he thinks, and the idea
seems reasonable, that the trusts

outthis measure in an honest and

It is estimated thai in the month of

Senator Call, of Florida, has
offered the following joint resolu
tion in the senate: -Resolved, That
the United States of America recog
nize the Republic of Cuba as a free
and independent government and
accord to that people all the rights
of a sovereign and independent gov
ernment in the ports and within
the jurisdiction of the United
States." This resolution will un

Spain is no longer able to give
undivided attention to Cuba, says
an exchange. The Philippine Is
lands, which she has owned for
more than 300 years, are commer
cially ot great importance, and the
cities are larger than those of Cuba.
The total population exceeds four
millions. As the insurgents on the
Philippines have been making rapid
headway, it will be seen that Spain
is between two fires. It would not
be unwise if the Madrid authorities
should call in the friendly offices
of the United States to arrange for
the Cubans to purchase their inde
pendence. . .
Remembering that President
Cleveland is the man who adyised
Congress that "tariff is.the illegal,
unjust, and unconstitutional source
of revenue," it is remarkable that
the final message of the president to
congress has little to say about
tariff, "By silence consent is
iven," says the old proverb. And
Mr. Cleveland's silence is equal to
consent He entered upon his pres
idential career. ignorant, as he him
self has confessed, of any knowledge
of tariff legislation and of the ef
fects thereof. He wabbled, as near
ly all neophytes do, toward the
Adam Smith philosophy. He saw
it tried in a modified form by Wil
son, Gorman, Crisp, and others,
and he has seen the effects therof.
He does not care to discuss them in
his message, and it may be inferred
that he has had enough of them.
The president's silence is an en
dorsement ot the thoery and prac
tice of protection. Inter Ocean.
The Nebraska county commis
sioners' association held its first
session in Lincoln this week.
Among the matters discussed was
that of county assessment and one
delegate suggested that a bill em
bodying the following be prepared
and presented for passage to the en
suing legislature: During the month
of December in 1897 the county
clerk, county judge and the board
of county commissioners or supervi
sors as the case may be should ap
point men of known business ca
pacity and resident taxpayers of
their county whose duty shall be to
value all real property in their coun
ty and report such valuation to the
county clerk, who shall cause the
. same to be entered upon proper
records. Such appointees to be
placed under adequate bond pro
vided by law. Such valuation after
reyiew by the county board to re
main as the valuation for four years.
Should any land or other realty be
improved during the interim of
four years the same can be taken as
personal property and added to the
real property in an "equitable
manner. A county assessor should
be elected who might appoint such
fomitioc mav be necessary to act
' under.his instructions in accordance
with proper legal regulation. All

property at its actual cash value.

SPEAKER REED AGAIN WIELDS THE
Reading of the President's Message "Was
the Feature of the First Day's Proceed
ings Many Foreign Representative
Occupy the Diplomatic Gallery.
Washington, Dec. 8. The United
States senate began the second session
of the Fifty-fourth congress with
crowded galleries and with that accom
paniment of activity and of greeting
that usually attends the reassembling of
congress. But the upper branch of con
gress never puts aside its dignity and
the meeting developed no demonstra
tions or dramatic incidents.
The reading of the president's message
was the feature of the proceedings and
beyond this no attempt was made to en
ter upon the business of the session.
"Washington, Dec. 8. While the
scenes attending the opening of the
house were both brilliant and interest
ing in the crowds that thronged the
galleries and the conspicuous personages
present, the proceedings themselves
were dull and spiritless, being distinct
ively routine. The house met, the
chaplain invoked the divine blessing on
the work of the session, the roll was
called, a ccommittee consisting of Mr.
Cannon (His.), Mr. Payne (N. T.) and
Mr. Turner (Ga.), were appointed to
wait on the president, and the latter's
annual communication was read. The
reading consumed about two hours. It
was Mr. Cleveland's farewell message
and there was much curiosity as to his
views, on Cuba, especially, but there
was no demonstration either of approval
or dissent throughout its reading.
HOUSE PASSES FOUR BILLS.
Three Itclated to Postal Matters and tho
Other "Was For Pensions.
"Washington, Dec. 9. Tho house,
without wasting time, proceeded to busi
ness Tuesday and before the session
closed had passed three bills of consider
able importance and the first of the
regular supply bills that for pensions.
Three of the bills related to postal mat
ters. One provided for the use of pri
vate mailing cards of the same general
size and character as the present postal
cards when 1 cent stamps are affixed.
Another provided for a limited indem
nity of $10 for the loss of registered
mail matter, and tho third provided
for a private carrier service in towns
and villages where no free delivery ex
ists. It provides that on application of
20 persons receiving their mail at the
same office the postmaster shall appoint
such persons as are willing to undertake
the collection and delivery of mails,
that a charge not to exceed 1 cent for
each letter be collected and that the
charges will bo paid by the beneficiaries.
The pension bill was passed without
factious opposition, but Mr. Grow (Pa.)
took occasion in the debate to submit
some views in favor of higher tariff
duties, based on that portion of the
president's message relating to the
tariff. The bill carries about 141,263,
880, about $75,000 less than the last
ACTION OF SILVER REPUBLICANS.
In Kefrainiug From Attending -Their
Party Caucus Causes Speculation.
"Washington, Dec. 9. The action of
the silver Republican senators in re
fraining from attendance upon the Re
publican caucus has led to no little spec
ulation as to whether the course pursued
is a forerunner of the future or whether
they will not at some time return to the
party. The silver senators are very
chary about discussing their motives or
intentions. They decline to talk on the
subject for publication, but from re
marks dropped, there can be no doubt
they consider that they have attended
their last Republican caucus. They
say, however, witliout exception, that in
taking the position they have, they do
not mean to place themselves in the at
titude of opponents of a protective tariff
policy, but rather that they desire to be
in an independent position, where they
can accept or reject any tariff proposi
tion presented by their former associates.
Cullom Gives Notice of a Speech.
Washington, Pec. 9. The notice of
the opening of a Cuban disenssion was
about the only feature of interest .der
veloped Tuesday at the brief session of
the senate, which lasted only 25 min
utes. Senator Cullom gave notice of a
speech on Cuba next Thursday.
DINGLEY BILL JS TAKEN UP.
Allen of Nebraska Springs a Surprise In
Washington, Dec. 10. The senate
Wednesday, by the decisive vote of 35
to 21, adopted a motion to take up the
Dingloy tariff bill. "Unexpected and sur
prising as this action was, it did not
have the significance which the vote
itself appears to convey. Immediately
following it, Aldrich (R. I.), one of fb3
Republican members of the finance com
mittee, moved to recommit tho bill to
that committee and this motion was
pending, when, at 2 o?poek, the morn
ing hour expired, and the entire matter
lapsed as though no vote had been taken.
Neither the bill nor the motion to recom
mit will pnjoy any privilege or preced
ence as a result of the action. It showed,
however, some lively parliamentary
fencing between Allen (Pop. Neb.),
the author of the motion and Messrs.
Chandler, Hale and Aldrich, as well as
for an exposition of the uncertain and
shifting elements within the senate
when a vote is precipitated on an im
portant question. The debate was at
times sharp and personal. Mr. Allen is
very fluent in his expressions and he
taunted the Republicans for shrinking
from the Dingley bill after conducting a
Early in the day three sets of vigorous

Attempt to Boh a Bank.
St. Paul, Neb., Dec. o. A bold at
tempt was made to rob theDanuebrog
State bank, nine miles north of here,
last night. The robbers jiad, by uso of
explosives, bnrsled the outer doors of
the safe, but the inner steel door re
sisted all their efforts, and they
got nothing. They then stole a
team of horses from William Sirensen
and a sleigh from the livery barn and
got away. Six miles east of Dannebrog
they broke down the sleigh and left it
in the road." The hprses were found
near tho same place, but there v,raa no
trace of the robbers.
Chadron, Neb., Dec. 5. Tho most
important action of the district court
here this week, has been the consum

the New York stockholders of
the Chadron Banking com
pany, by winch those stockholders paid
into cqurt the full amount of their lia
bilities under the law, amounting to
10,500, and the criminal prosecntidn
again, st A. C. Putnam, president of the
bank, for retjeiviug money when tho
bank was insolvent, was nulla prpssed.
This settlement assures to the depositors
50 cents on the dollar, and assets of the

cents on the dollar.

GIVES GERMANY A BLOW.
President Cleveland Suspends tho Free
' Tonnage Bues.
; Berlin, Dec. 6. The Cologne Gazette
says tfiat the North German-Lloyd and
Hamburg-American steamship lines will
be the chief sufferers by the withdrawal
of the exemption of German vessels from
the payment of tonnage dues in the
United States, and adds: "President
Cleveland has made this decision in or
der to secure himself a brilliant send-off
on his retirement. But the decision is
illegal. President Cleveland's assertion
that state tonnago dues are levied at
German ports is incorrect. No such
dues are levied. The dues imposed aro
for the use of special port accommoda
tions." Continuing, tho Cologne Ga
zette says it trusts that if the proclama
tion is enforced the American law courts
will see that the principle of right and
justice is upheld, "even in the case of
Germans in America," and it further
expresses the hope that "in the mean
while tho German government will suc
ceed in convincing Washington that
Germany cannot accept such an in
fringement of her rights."
Julian Says It Was a Conspiracy.
San Francisco, Dec. 9. Martin Ju
lian stated that he has evidence com
plete which will prove that a conspiracy
was planned and operated against Fitz
simmons in the recent Fitzsimmons
Sharkey fight. Julian says that the par
ties to the conspiracy were Referee Earp,
Danny Needham, Sharkey's trainer, and
Dan Lynch, Sharkey's backer, and the
National club. Julian says it is idle to
talk of a contest before the Olympic
club hero between Corbett and Fitzsim
mons, because clubs in New York will
offer Larger purses for a limited contest
than any club in a smaller city. If an
unlimited contest cannot be arranged
Fitzsimmons wants to fight for the lar
gest available purse in an unlimited
Venezuela Accepts tho Agreement.
Washington, Dec. 8. Secretary
Olney has just reoeived a cablegram
from" Senor Andrade, the Venezuelan
minister to Washington, who is now in
Caracas, stating that tho Venezuelan
government has accepted the agreement
reached by the United States and Great
Britain for the arbitration of the bound
ary dispute, and that an extra session of
the Venezuelan congress has been called
to consider it. Thus the last obstacle to
an amicable settlement of the dispute
will be removed.
Bryan Not Iicady to Comment.
Lincoln, Dec. 8. A representative of
tho Associated Press called upon William
J. Bryan and showed him a copy of
President Cleveland's messago. Mr,
Bryan was overwhelmed with press of
work and a constant stream of callers,
and after repeated efforts was compelled
to abandon the attempt to read the mes
sage. "Mr. Cleveland's message," said
Mr. Bryan, "is too important a docu
ment either to bo commented upon in
diecemeal or briefly as a whole. I do
not care to express myself upon tho
messago until I shall have had oppor
tunity to carefully read and digest it."
MAD LOVER SHOOTS TO KILL.
Clans Belts Attempts to exterminate tho
Family of His Sweetheart.
Schuyler, Neb,, Pec. 0.--A shooting
affray occurred at midnight last night at
the home of Max Gleaspu, six. miles
from here, in which Glea son's son a
young man of 21 years was killed, shot
through the heart by Clans Dolts, who
wished to marry Gleason's daughter.
Opposition pf the parents to the mar
riage is said to be the pause of tho
murder and it is no fault of Dolts' that
he did not exterminate the family.
After killing the son he fired three times
at Mrs. Gleasqn without effect.
The father, who was in bed, sprang
up, seized a shotgun and aimed it at
Delts, but the charge failed to explode.
Delts then turned on the old gentleman,
shot him in the forehead, and wresting
the shotgun from him beat him over tho
head, leaving him for dead. He then
made his escape. This morning the
sheriff formed p. posse and is scouring
