A strange phenomena occurtd last Fri
day evening, on the place of Mr.- Bi.ker,
one mile southeast of Looniis, that will
be a problem for our scientists to solve.
Mr. Baker has a well about 220 fet in
depth, with about four feet stand of
water. A heavy cloud hung threatening
in the horizon towards evening, and all
of a sudden his well began to overflow
with about the same volume as when the
windmill is running, and it continued to
run for over an hour. The phenomena
was so strange that he called in two of
his neighbors to witness it. Holdrege
Since the war just how long since the
papers don't say nineteen counties in
Illinois haye suffered to the extent of
$372,819 from defalcation by county
treasurers. Of the nineteen thus cata
logued, lour of them have "suffered"
more than once, Clark county five tinier
Lawerence county twice. Mason county
twice nd Peoria county three times
These sufferings are charged up to the two
old political parties as follows: Nineteen

Where the negro, in his present state
of semi-barbarism, is in the majority, the
safety of the whites, responsible govern
ment, and law and order, depend upon
his subjection. Courier Journal.
And who is to be the judge of the
negro's semi barbaric state? The drunk
en night riders who shoot dowo men
simply because they refuse to vote the
democratic ticket, and whipwmen only
because their color is black? It would
be just as well to have some authorized
representatives of the government in such
a country to uphold the responsibility
t' r government and law and order and
hold in subjection some of those in semi
barbarism who are not negroes. Inter
China, the cradle of the human race,
has proclaimed that Americans in the
Celestial empire will be treated just as the
Chinese are in this country. We can't
go to war with the four hundred millions
of China for doing in retaliation what
we do to them, and what can we do about
it? We haye a large American popula
tion in China; they haye large American
property enterests there; they are leading
n enlightened progress in that dark re
gion, and what would be the result of
strict reciprocity between the two coun
tries? Truly, the peculiar "Heathen Chi
nte" has tumbled to the American game.

word that the future policy of Chism will
be to deal with the Americans in China
just as Americans denl with Chinese.
That may make the American people put

MR. BLAINE'S SUGAR POLICY.
Mr. Blaine's tariff, letter has been made
the latest nine days' wonder of politics.
Iteally there i9 nothing wonderful about
it, except as to the tim of production.
The matter is neither new nor stranj'e.
Mr. Blaine in common with the majority
of republicans who have given sjecial
i attention to tariff studies, is apprehen
sive lest foreign countries should derive
more benefit from the reduction of sugar
duties than will accrue to the people f
the United States. The farmers and me
chanics and most people of moderate in
come 8 had, however become so impressed
and mainly by the orations and writings
of democrats and mugwumps, with a
desire for free sugar as to compel the
majority in congress to make the reduc
tions against which Mr. Blaine now pro
tests. Mr. Blaine labored hard with the
house committee of ways and means to
induce it to insist upon reductions upon
certain articles of United States' produc
tion in exchange for the United States'
reduction upon the ugar products of
Central and Southern America and of
the West Indian Islands. His arguments
were thoroughly considered by that body
of very able and deeply experienced
financiers, and it came to the conclusion
that Mr. Blaine's project would be so
slow in culminating, involving as it nec
essarily would, a treaty with each of the
sugar producing states, as to excite gen
eral dissatisfaction. Certainly every
democratic and Cobdenite journal, now
praising the "sagacity" of Mr. Blaine,
would haye been lotad in condemnation
of the republican party if it had delayed
sugar reducti' n until treaties were made
between the United States and all other
sugar producing countries. The ways
and means committee was confront d by
two eyils, and it chose what it consider
ed to be the lesser of the two. It is pos
sible that the committee's judgment wis
as sound as that of Mr. Blaine. ,
The one thing wonderful about Mr.
Blaine's letter is the time of production.
The house has agreed upon a bill, it was
before the senate for consideration. At
this stage an American secretary of state
endeavors to influence the senate, both
ty letters directly addressed to certain
of its members and by direct appeals to
popular feeling, to amend the bill, in a
manner which the house has disapproved
after respectful and thorough consider
ation of Mr. Blaine's arguments. No
other secretaiy of state has ventured up
on such a course.
The Inter Ocean files are proofs of its
predictions for a retention of sugar du
ties until it should become plain that free
sugar would mean cheap sugar. Free
goods are not always cheap goods. The
sugar clauses of the McKinley bill are
those of whose wisdom the Inter Ocean
is least certain; but when the farmers of
the northwest, the artisans of the middle
states, and the people of the east had
united in a demand for free sugar the
Inter Ocean censed to argue; it ever has
had a great respect for the yoice of the
people. Taken as a whole, the McKinley
bill is an excellent measure. So much
Mr. Blaine admits. But, like Mr. Cole
man in the house of representatives, he is
dissatisfied with the sugar clauses. This
is a free country and Mr. Blaine has a
right to criticise this bill or any other bill
in any stage of its inception; but, as w
bef re have said, no other secretary of
state has been bold enough to use the
power of his official position in an attempt
to urge one co ordinate branch of the
national legislature to undo what the
other co-ordinate branch has done, after
mature consideration of the nature and
quality of the secretary's opposition to
its being done.
Much has been said about the duty of
the republican party to "live up to its
pledges" to the old soldiers in the last
national convention. This was tie
pledge: "The legislation of congress
should conform to the pledge made by a
loval people, and be so enlarged and ex
tended as to provide against the possibil
ity that any man who honorably wore the
federal uniform shall become an inmate
of an almshouse, or dependent ou priyate
charity. In the presence of an overflow
ing treasury it would be a public scan
dal to do less for those whose valorous
services preserved the government." The
disability pension bill as passed by con
cress and signed by the president elected
on that platform, has most religiously
kept the promise of the platform. A
soldier physically or mentally incapable
of supporting himself gets the benefit .f
the law. The soldiers injured in the ser
vice and the widews and orphans have
already been provided for by the bills
passed by the republicans of congrtis.
WILL NOT KLL PROHIBITION.
The eagerness of liquor dealers to get
their goods on the market regardless of
the desire of the people for them,
or the laws regulating such matters,
is one of the features of the busi
ness to which little attention has been
tilled . The decision of the supreme
court in regard to "original packages"
s tven liquor men an idea that they
can force their goods on the people, and
according to reports they are doing their
best to do so. Apparently they go on
le principle that other people care just
s little for violating the laws as they do.
This is suggested by a letter just re
ceived from Ellendale, N. D-, where the
prohibition law has lately gone into ef
fect. The writer says:
Nearly every business man in North
Dakota has this week received circulars
from outside liquor elealcrs r-howidg how
the law may be evaded and intoxicants
shippcel in. One Illinois liou-e sends
the following in circular form:
"Agents wanted in every town to take
orders for liquor on cennmir-j-Ion. 'At
would be ieased to rorresooiut and
make satisfactory terms wit.i you."
Anoilur circular nia..es II: s announce
ment: " '0.i:;;n.i jxiV-ago' fjoods hi ;;;:U.:r
lots 1 t.d n.iw-'rtl put up ia LV.f piat-S
plats end cy.'.-.; t flv-.-n. 'C-re!j w'.-.'l, ;
ea r specialty.
"Wf t re it . eyerv customs-;- ia a i
mar.ntr tuat once our customer j.iays j
our c-uaio.ue;-." :
Of cource sucii )e;si-lence will m.xt i
with come reward, a in aluiet every
community there are some people who
will drink liquor, when they can get ir,
no matter what rhe law is. It is neit
nurprising, therefore, that mur correspon
dent nhouli close It is letter H9 follows:
'The original p ickage business ia assum
ing large proportions since July 1, when
the prohibition law went into effect."
It is difficult to believe, howeyer, that
this temporary triumph over a law enact
ed and approved by the majority of an
earnest and intel ient people can resul
in any permanent ben- fit to those en
gaged in the traffic. This being a country
in which a mojority of the people rule
and mak the laws, eventually thone
who n-.-pect tha laws fare better than
those who break them. If the people
were in doubt about prohibition thi9
course of the liquor dealers would ex
asperate them, and make them more de
termined than ever to destreiy the liquor
traffic. The 'original package" business
will not destroy prohibition, but will
give it new ground to build em. The
American people do not like to be beaten
by a sharp gam '. When .ttempt-el it
only makes them the more eae. to win.

The republicans are in convention to
day at Weeping Water and we preelict
a good acceptable ticket to the people.
There has been considerable foolish talk
against Mr. Dayies eltiring the past week
by certain parties in the city who clim(
that gentleman did not support the whole
republican ticket at the general election
one year ago. Mr. Davies did support
the whole ticket, we are reliably inform
ed. There is nothing to be gained by
this k'nd of electioneering and if the
republicans of Plattsmouth are going to
run men out of the party who were more
than ordinarily independent last year
we would like to know where the party
will be ?heu we get through.
As important county officer as was voted
for last year was a county commissioner,
anil a good republican aud old soldier
was running on the republican ticket, ytt
he was almost unanimously scratched in
this city aud oy the very men among the
rest who charge Mr. Davies with being
lukewarm towards a part of the county
ticket. We simply refer tc this kind of
electioneering to peiiut out the foolish
ness of it.
The Baltimore and Ohio railroad com
pany have issued to every minor official
a circular note, of which the following
is the leading part:
This company will not, under any
circumstances, employ men who are in

places must be warned to discontinue the
practice or quit the company's service.
Employes will be discharged if intoxi

The officials in each department are
given to understand that they are ex
pected to enforce the above order. Any
official who wilfully retains the service
of a man who is known to elrink habitu

looks like reform. Mr. Iioggc-n ought
to get his bankers and business men's
association after the Baltimore and Ohio

I We call attention to the novelty of its construction, it being composed of two sheets
of peper with sui interposed layer of water-proof bitumen or asphalt, the whole unitea
under -r.cure, making a sanitary mildew-proof sheathing for the sides and floors of
houses, : hat will last as long as the buiiding upon which it is applied.
E::?-rience has shown that the cheap papers commonly used for sheathing houses do
not protect a building for any length of time, but soon mildew and fall to pieces, making
the house drafty and damp; these defects can thtn only be remedied at great expense.
A Good Sheathing like the O. K. Building Paper, can be obtained at a trifling cost, and
