tho late, unlamcntcd session of the Nebraska
legislature, hut turns naturally from affairs
of state to tho nmenltle of life.
Mr. Dcnzingcr has gathered nn nf.sortmiMit
of experience and reputation during a dozen
years ient In newspaper work, and is ripo
for one of those laudatory Introductions lu
which the victim is slobbered nil over with
gush and ct ceteras; but in this caso the suh
ject regretfully declines to bore the public
with his oditorlal edtgree, and ho stubbornly
refuses to have his qualities, mental or moral,
paraded like any common freak.
However, the CoUHiEH can commend Mr.
Denzlnger to tho icoplo of Lincoln as a gentle
man and n young man worthy the fullest con
fidence, and it bespeaks for him tho kindly
courtesy and assistance of its friends in speed
lly making tho acquaintance so necessary for
successful newspnjer work.
For itself tho CouniEit promises a constant
ly improving paper. A generous patronage
is tho best possible proof that it has been ap
preciated in tho past, and tho cncagcmcnt of

Apropos the subject of newspaper changes,
Mr. Hovey Barrett of tho Omaha Herald bu
reau resigned his place thlo week to take for
tune by the forelock and compel her to his em
brace. He is going to run up to Dakota and
have n little round up of the many capitals-to-be,
and when ho discovers tho king bee of
the lot he will corral it. His scheme is
double-barreled. He may jump into a real
ostate spec up to his neck, or he may become
ambitious and start the future great paper of
the new state. In the latter case he will le
backed by a Lincoln compatriot and a Dakota
politician, and he takes an early spring start
for the scene of the scrimmage in order to get
the gun loadod-both barrels of it. Barrett is
a graduate of the state university and a
young fellow of more than a vera go ability
and versatility. He stumbled into) newspap
er work almost by accident, but lias duvelo
ed a successful aptitude for it. He began
about a year ago by relieving n schoolmate
for a few days in tho Council Bluffs depart
ment of au Omaha paer. This suggested a
Lincoln bureau and overtures to the Herald
were promptly responded to by the liuslnei-s
manager. Barrett began the enterprise with
out practical experience, but by rustling
seventeen hours out of every twenty-four he
has built up a business that satisfies his em
ployers and be hav made a feature that finds
favor with the publie. Success to Hovey
wherever lie govs is the united wish of his fel
At the time of writing Barrett's successor
bad not been announced, but Mr. John D.
LIddle, the HeraUVs solicitor, stands in the
lino of promotion. Johnny has had exper
ience with Iowa papers, and his personal
qualities are too well known hero to need
In this connection it may be of general in
terest to know that Col. Smith, who retort
ed the senate for the Jotinin, is now acting
as correspondent for the Omaha Krpuhlican.
Col. Howe, former correspondet of tho lie
publican, has become attached to the Journal
It is singular that after a man once gets a
taste of office ho never knows when he has
enough. Now thero Is Representative Sweet
of Merrick county, the gentleman who achiev
ed distinction in the recent unpleasantness by
allowing himself to be held down in his seat
while clamoring for a chance to change his
vote and thereby defeat the resolution to buIh
init a prohibition amendment to tho constitu
tion. During the legislative session Mr. Sweet
was suapoctcd of lending a willing ear to tho
seductive hum of tho congressional bee. He
K'oms to have "dropped" to tho elusiveness of
that prize and is now chasing another will-o-the-wisp.
Ho was in the city the other day
on ids way to Beatrice to waylay Senator
Paddock, but was disappointed at this stage
of the journey by learning that that distin
guished Nebraska!) was still bobbing about
tho east, and mournfully took the back track.
Speaking of politicians, tbore has been a
deal of speculation as to Senator Frank Han
som's motive in passing that now law requir
ing lire insurance companies to pay the full
amount expressed in tho policy In the case of
a total loss.
Ransom is credited with passing It lecause
it would not liavo run tho gauntlet without
his coaching and strategy. Ho not only in
troduced tho bill but he put in several others
to dlvldo the attention of tho Insurance peo
plo, and he watched and lobbied his pet meas
ure with persistent vigilance.
One plausible explanation of his motive has
been offerod. Twoyoarsago last fall Ran
som was a candidate, for the Republican
nomination for attorney-general. Ho had
the covotod prize all but within his grasp
whon Capt. rainier of I'latUmouth manipu
lated tho Cass county delegation and nomi
nated Qenoral Loeso.
For some reason or otlior Capt. Palmer lias
come to be recognized as tho head and front
of tho insuranco power in Nebraska, and
Senator Ransom is supposed to have thrown
discredit upon the captain's omnipotence by
proving that he had not buttoned tho state
safely iu his panta pocket. Tho presumption
Is that this will lower tho captain soveral pegs
In tho estimation of hU employers nnd os
sihly affect his jtocket lwnk. At any rato it
is a sample of the article known as political
revenge, and tho victim is upiotfd to take
all tho bitterness homo to his own tongue.
But tho lighting senator from Otoe did not
stop at that. Palmer had what tho boys call
"a snap' by getting tho Insuranco on the
stato's buildings, which ho farmed' out, pre
sumably In tho expectation of getting a hand
somo commission on tho f.H),(KX) of premium.
But Ransom helped to knock out the appro
priation, and tho captain gets left.
Such is politics.
A wedding in which many Lincoln young
pooplo will Imj interested, occurred nt Iowa
City, Iown, on Wednesday. It celebrated
tho union of Miss Addle Bloom of Iowa City,
well and popularly known here, to Mr. Hlmon
Fisher, n prosperous and prominent young
man of Omaha. A special Pullman car was
chartered lu which somo thirty Omaha
friends and relatives traveled to tho brilliant

At tho conclusion of tho ceremony and
after a liberal shower of well wishes, the
nowly made couple lead tho march to supper,
which by tho way was one of the most elabor

served in llvo courses, a dlfTeront wine finish
ing each change. Thero was present none
but Immediate friends nnd relatives of tho
contracting ixirtics, but oven theso made
quite n largo and brilliant assembly, among
them being noticeable guests from Chicago,
New York, Cincinnati, Sioux City, Omaha,
Lincoln, Rock Island, Des Moines and other
cities. To.eRrams wero received by the

hundred, and they woro road later in tliu
