Tho dispute over tho governorship of tho
state o( Nebraska haa excited n deal of com
ment all over tho country. Thcro has tcen
an untold amount of gossip, itpoculation and
political rancor but then) oro other points In
contention that are worthy tho calm ntten
tion of reflective people, now that the mutter
has been settled for good. Ouu of tho things
worthy of notlco Is tho fnct that tho law has
been respcted and rival claimants havo
bowed quietly and promptly in submission to
ltshlghesttrlbunal: tho supremo court. Gov.
Thayer yielded up thu olllco without ttnneees
tary trouble, only making a protest to main
tain and perhaps emphasize his rights. Mr.
Boyd in turn gracefully submitted to tho
dictum which displaced him. Tho changes
were made as icaccably, almost, as though a
political revolution were not In progreis, tho
sensational reorts of tho dally papers to tho
contrary notwithstanding. Itcvrtalnly was
a credit to Nebraskatis as n law-abiding
Another fact is 'worthy of notice, too.
Go7. Thayer is undoubtedly tho most dis
tinguished Nebrnsknn living. Hundreds of
thousands of our peoplo aro comparatively
new comers and may not bo familiar with
the history of tho stato and its great men
away back to tho time that tried men's souls,
but the record of Gen. Thayer's Hfo sIiowb
tbat no has held greater honors and rendered
the stato more distinguished service than any
other of her citizens. It is a career to bo proud
of and the state can well bo proud of tho man
and his career. Gov. Thayer was bom at
Belllugham, Mass., and graduated from
Brown university in 1847. Ho settled In Ne
braska In 1854, and within a year took such
a commanding part in politics that he was a
candidate for congress. Ho happened to bo
pitted against the strongest man of tho r;,,o
sitlon and was not successful. In the same
year, however, the legislature elected him
brigadier general of the territorial militia
and he led a company against tho Pawnee
Indians, who had been troublesome. In 1859
he made a second campaign against the red
skins and took part in the peace negotiations
. with the hostile.) The following year he was
sent to the territorial legislature. When thu
rebellion broke out he was instrumental in
forming and organizing the first regiment of
infantry tbat Nebraska sent at, Fathor
Abraham's call for volunteers and he was
made colonel of the regiment. Th-. body of
men had a brilliant and brave cartar and
have an honorable place in the history of the
country. At FortDonelson they bore tre
brunt of.ooe of the assault. At Bhiloh they
won still greater detection, and Col. Thayer
was commissioned a brigadier general. For
gallant conduct in the campaign about Vicks
burg he was promoted to major general.
Near the close of the war Gen. Thayor was
given the command of the army of the Fron
tier to subdue obstreperous Indians. In 1860
when It was expected Nebraska would be ad
mitted as a state Thayer was elected one of its
United States senators and tho following
year be took his seat at Washington. In
1875 he was appointed territorial governor of
Wyoming and held tho ofllco ono term . Tho
general was elected governor of Nebraska in
1880 and again in two years later. Now, by
a curious train of circumstances ho gets the
office for a third term. Notwithstanding his
years and his arduous servlco in the war tho
governor is halo and vlgoious in mind as
well as In body. And ho is to bo admired for
the dignity with which he curried himself in
the late unpleasantness. A weak man would
have made a display of himself tbat would
have excited ridicule, but events have justi
fied every move made by tho governor and
he is clearly on top iu all respects., and espe
The rumor has been started that Gen. Al
ger the Michigan millionaire, who wants to
be president, is negotiating for tho Omaha
Bee and is likely to get control of it. Peoplo
about tho Bee office laugh at the story as too
absurd to be denied, But if the Bee is not to
be bought to boom a presidential candidate
another important change has taken placo in
Its conduct. It has just secured control of
tho reports of the Western Associated Press.
As I explained several weeks ago, the Heo
was getting the service of tho Northwestern
Associated Press, a miner organization The
'difference is this: ono sends an average of
7,000 words a day and the other gives 34,000.
Tho Bee has been after this service for five
years and now is on a footing with tho dail
ies of Denver, Kansas City .and tho bigger
cities east. It will also enable tho Bee to
drop much of it's sjieclal service which pays
much heavier tolls than press reports, not to
mention tbo compensation of tho correspond
ents. The circulation war is still on in
. Omaha. Tho Bee's rate of live cents a week
has Increased it's list about 3000 In two weeks,
but the World-Herald Is jogging along as
though nothing hud happened.
Col. Billy McCauu, the gallant young mtn
who flguied in the legislature four years ugo
and was rewarded with tho rogistershlp of
the Chadrou land office has gono to Omaha
to serve us a grand juicr. The doughty
colonel, on lehalf of tho eoplQ of his neigh
borhood, would liku to ilud tho man who
started that Indian scare last winter, for ho
is quite sure It was only a scare. In tho ear
ly stages of that affair squaws and iwpooses

have allowed their families to mluglo umoiig
the whites (who might hold them us hostages)
if they meant war. When the troops havo
into sight tho Indian took his turn at getting
frightened und tho late "war" was tho result.
Tho colonel was a staunch advocate o( tho
militia before he threw up his commission
and denied himself the pomp and pleasure of
wearing gold lace and brass buttons and his
view of the case may teeui like a desertion of
the principles which onco moved him to ilo

"Now, tho boys In tho national guard
went tho front with tho expectation that thoy

Hut tho Colonel Is yot after tho man who
started tho "scare" Ho has about given up
hopo of finding him nnd ho is elaborating n
scheme to provo to tho world that tho Indian
was not such n dangorous fellow as ho was

How many souvenir spoons have you I
Not any? Well, you are away behind the
times. The fad now is to havo a spoon from
every big city you visit, and tho silversmiths
are getting up special designs to suit partic
ular cities or localities. Thus wo have a
spoon with Washington's monument, with a
Plymouth rock, with a Salem witch, with a
Bunker Hill monuuiont, with an old knlcker
bocker or with a Newport mill to emphasize
tho locality it represents. Even Omaha has
gotten up a spoon. There Is bo very little In
that town that is distinctive, but one might
have expected the jewelers to take an Indian
as a symbolical remlndor of the city. It is
named for a tribe of the noblo roil men, and
eastern people think of us being on a verge
of civilisation. Hut perhaps Omaha jo welers
were not equal to executing elaborate de
signs, Thoy seem to havo contented them
selves with engraving tho word Omaha in
tho bowl of tho spoon or on tho handle.
Buroly Lincoln fad followers ought not to bo
behind in this mutter. Protty girls with a
prospect of getting mirrled havo u new pre
text for working susceptible man for coffee
spoons and our local jowelers will meet the
demand as well as tho Omaha craftsmen.
Last Monday 1 met a prominent retail
merchant who commented on tho beauty of
the day but complained of the small trade
that day. It was only noon, with thu best
half of the day In his lino yet to come, and
jet ho was borrowing trouble. Ho whs not
complaining about tiude as a whole, because
it was hotter than ho expected. He was un
doubtedly sincere when ho expressed IiIh
grutllcatlon but that particular Monday
was so dull. Several oilier subjects were dls
cuted, but each time he would revert to tho
statement that it wus very dull for a Mon
day, I coulu't help wondei lug why a man
would unnecessarily help drive nails in his
coffin, Wo havo an nbundunco of evidence
to slww that very fow men dlo of worki It Is

prosperous business and ho Imd no moans of
knowing that his afternoon miles would not
oven up tho business of tho day, and yet ho
was fretting for foar It might not. Kvnry
man has real troublo enough but ho was bor
rowing more. Now I do not think ho was
thu avaricious man ho might appear to bo to
some people. This anticipation of pomlble
