The City Election.
Tho city election will bo hold Tues
day, April 1st. K convention nomina
tions are to be mnde, it will bo neces
sary to bold such conventions on or
bqfore Monday, March 17th, as fifteen
days mugt elapso between tho dato of
nomination und election day. The
general tone of opinion is against
party nominations, nnd in favor of
ono ticket nominated by a mass
or citizen's convention, thus doing away
with strife or ill feeling and all sup
porting ono set of good and capable
candidates. Of lato years partisanship
has not cut much figure; in fact in soy
oral instances latoly republicans and
democrats have held conventions and
each endorsed port of tho other's nom
inations. This has rosulted in tho se
lection of good men.
The Tribuno feels favorable to a non
partisan ticket, and it trusts that with
in th next week domocrats, republicans
nnd others will got together and take up
on themselvos tho authority to isiuo a
call for a convention
How They Vote.
Tho womon'a civic league at Kear
ney lomo time ago concluded to hold an
ejection to voto on tho "wet" and
"dry" proposition, but later this plan
was abandoned and u house to house
canvass made. Women over twenty
one year? of age only were interrogated,
and at tho closo of tho campaign tho
voto stood: Dry 982, wot 48, undo
This one-sided expression of thoir
views by tho women of Kearney is
probably about what might be expoctod
in any Nebraska town, and Is evidence
that when women are given the richl
of suffrage to which wo believe they
rcquiro any stretch of imagination to see
thoy aro honestly entitled it doesn't
what the result will bo on tho prohibi
tion question in Nebraska.
During tho present session of the
legislature quito a numbor of North
Platto men havo viBitad in Lincoln and
"took notice" of tho doings of tho
solons and tho mombera'of the "third
house" tho lobbyists and a number'
of them hayc declared that the surface
Indications are that many "dirty" deals
nre being mado. Money is said to figuro
in-aupport of or opposition to measures;
"dangerous" men nro bought off by
promises of roward, and doals that
would not bear investigation lire
very frequently made. If, theso ' asser
tions' arc truo, tho much vaunted pro
grosslvcnosa of tho modern politician and
lawmaker ih worse than the "bossism"
of tho stand-pattor. ,It is unothor in
stance of tho "reformer" falling to use
his best efforts to securo reformation.
Tho inauguration of President Wilson
Tuesday wtia attonded by considerable
pomp arid splendor and with much en
thusiasm on tho part of tho residents
and visitors. Tho parndo, which was n
moat imposing one, Was followed in tho
evening by a brilliant display of pyro
tochnlcu. President Wilson's Inaugural
address bore tho polish of a scholar; tho
diction being finojbut it dealt with gener
alities, and gave no Inkling of his policy,
this being loft to .be embodied In bio
mesfngti to tho extra session of con
gress poxt month. That tho Wilson ad
ministration may bo successful and
fuljy up to oxpoctations of his party is
tho wish gf ThrTribuno.
The press dispatchos from Washing
ton toll U that whan Govornor Moro
head and his Nebraska colonels rodo
down Pennsylvania avenuo in tho In
uugurnl parndo thoy wore the
"observed Of all obsorvors." This is
just no we predicted, and probably none
was more closely observed than Lincoln
county's representative, Colonol Will
iam Jieatty, of Brady.
When Colonol Bryan $ook the oath of
ofllco Wednesday he dropped a remark
that has been construod to moan that
ho will not long remain in tho ofllco of
secretary of stato. His remark was
such as to to cause surpriso to thoso
who hoard it.

U. S. Soon to Import Meats.
Within a few years tho United States
will be importing cattle as a food sup
ply for its peoplo instead of oxporting
them, ns is now the case, according to
J. J. Ferguson, of Chicago,
"Soon tho United States will export
no moro cnttlo," said Mr. Ferguson.
"Statistics show our population is rap
idly increasing, while the cnttlo stock
is decreasing. Canada is now impdrt
ing mea'-s. Recently boef from Aus
tralia was shipped into Canada. It
was tho first time this had happened.
There is o greater shortage of food
supplies in the old world than here.
We are still tho bust living and best
fed peoplo in the world. In tho old
countries many people can afford meat
onlv once or twice a week. Americans
buymeat whenover they want It, re
gardless of prico. They come of n meat
eating people, and it scorns hardly
likely thoy will over glv up meat as
the main article of food because of the
