ALL the republicans need do in
the present congress is to "keep in
the middle of the road."
IT is pretty conclusive that Sen
tor Mattderson will secure the locn
ion ol ti mint at Omaha. So mote
it be.
THE late Preston H. Plumb beg
his career a a country printer.
great many men commence th
career in that capacity, but it rare
occurs that they die as members
the senate.
SiNCB the appointment of Stephen
R Klkins to the secretary of war
hip, it has been discovered tha
hi mother is buried in Nebraska
City. The secretary's father was a
citizen of Otoe county and agent o
the Hen Holiday overland stage
line during the civil war. The last
resting place of the mother is
marked by a simple marble slab.
I.A Gk'IlTK is steadily spreading
in this country. While its preva
lence will probably become so gen
eral that it may truly be called an
epidemic, the disease is not conta-
geous. It is caused by atmospheric
conditions. Dr. Edson, one of the
leading physicians of New York
states that he believes there is no
absolute preventive of the disease
"The best advice I can give," he
ays, "is, observe the general rules
of health; try to avoid taking cold,
and, if you have a cold, take good
care to cure it. Always dress
warmly, if possible with woolen
garments. Above all, keep your
digestive organs in good con
It is asserted upon good author
ity that the Mills faction ot the
democratic house propose to draft
n taritf bill embodying the princi
pies of the famous Mills bill
of the Fiftieth congress, and
urge its passage. Such a bill
should properly be referred to the
ways and means committee, but the
plan of the free traders is to refer it
to the committee of which Mr. Mills
is chairman and thus secure a
favorable report upon the bill
Then it will be that the true demo
cratic position will be known. It
will be a contest in favor of the
repeal of the McKinley law and the
enactment of a free trade law on
one hand and the retention of the
McKiuley law on the other. Let the
fight proceed.
Neukaska teachers from both the
city and rural schools, should be
well represented at the State Teach
er' Association w hich convenes at
Lincoln to-morrow continuing over
Thursday. A program bearing
directly upon live school topics
to be rendered by the educators of
our state, has been prepared and
the management announces that it
will be carried out to the letter.
Evening lectures will be es
peceial features of the occasion, to
be delivered by educators of na
tional reputation. The most
prominent of whom, probably, is
lion. Andrew S. Draper, of Albany,
New York, who lectures Thursday
evening on the subject "Our Pub
lic School System and General Ed
ucation." This address alone will
warrant the attendance of any live
progressive teacher. We hope to
see Cass county well represented
at the meeting.
The Nebraska Press Association
which meets at Fremont January
Zi, should enroll a representative
from every news paper in the state.
The association has already con
ferred great banefits upon the pro
fession, bid there is a necessity for
the manifestation of still a greater
interest in the matter than ever be
fore. This is an age of progressive
. ness, and aa a means of acquiring
helpful ideas that will aid in keep,
ing pace with this onward and up
ward march, meetings of this nature
can rarely be excelled. The news
paper men must keep out of th
ruts. Get out by helping each
other. Attend these meetings and
thus make au effort to get this
help. It is obviously au injustice
to ones self and manifestely unfair
to hi readers, for an editor to plod
along endeavoring to learn the
newspaper business thoroughly by
actual finding out by experience,
what he can learn by accepting
truths that have been developed
and firmly established heretofore.

There are always splendid oppor
tunities at these meetings ior par
ticipanta to receive information
that would probably require year
to acquire by experimental know
edge. Let us accept these deduc
tions of wisdom, incorporate the

gies to mane discoveries of truth
not yet accessible.
Although assured as never
before of countless coming bless
ings from the coming crops, the
country is even now halting and
hesitating in its enterprise in a
marked degree because of some
undefined apprehension about the
future financial condition. It is not
unfair to attribute this feeling to
the agitation respecting silver.
This prevailingdoubt is, however.
not without some good result. It
has forced economy all over the
land, restrained speculative opera
tions, and prepared the way for the
restoration of sound currency,
What is thus saved and what is now
certain to be earned through the
gathered crops have together pro
vided means and brought the
country to a most favorable time
when the silver law can be repealed
with the least injury or incon
There is evidently a marked
change in public sentiment upon
this important subject which has so
far progressed that neither of the
great political parties will venture
to avow itself distinctly in favor of
the silver law of 1890, or to assume
it as a party measure for the future
Is it not, therefore, safe in policy
and timely in principle now
promptly to meet the issue, while
so many favorable conditions
exist, by repealing the law; and
after that, to consider how the
great mass of silver already purch
ased can be disposed of with the
least injury to all intercst.iuvolved
in it? George S. Coe, iu the Janu
nry Forum.
Between tChiii and Scnor Garza,

Governor Thayer and Labor Com
missioner Ludden are actively at
work i,n securing the proposed
train load of corn to be sent to the
famine sufferers of Russia. From
dozens of points in the state re
sponses are coming to the procla
mation of the governor, and Mr.
Ludden estimates that 2,003,000
pounds of breadstuffs will be
donated by Nebraskans. Yesterday
Governor Thayer received a letter
from Governor Merriam of Minne
sota, the letter stating that the
millers' organization there had
raised 1,000,000 pounds of flour for
Russian sufferers. The letter sug
gests that as the Russian charge
d'atlairs had agreed to charter a
steamer to take the supplies across
the ocean, that Nebraska join with
Minnesota in nuking up a ship
oad. Gov. Thayer is in hearty ac
cord with the idea that a, ship load
be made up from a few western
states but as the naval department
las said that Nebraska and Minne
sota can have the frigate Constclla-
ion to take the supplies to St.
'etcrsburg at government expense
the governor thinks that to be the
preferable way of shipment. "I
would like," said the governor, "to
have the, contribution from this
country go a free offering the on
ire way and land in Russia in a
ship carrying the American Colors.
It would mHke the gift complete
and much more satisfactory to the
givers." Senator Paddock will
oin with the governor in the ar
rangement for shipping facilities
and the governor hopes very
shortly to be able to notify the
many people over the state who
have volunteered contributions
list how and when to make ship
ments. Lincoln Call.
The sea serpent has now respect
able clerical backing and is likely
to be recognized in the best society.
The bishop of Adelaide of Australia
certifies to the finding of a dead sea
serpent sixty feet long on the
beach. Its head was five feet long
and had two holes in the top and it
had a tail like a whale.-Lincoln
Chile must either apologize and
pay indemnity or fight the United
Ckisi ii doing more for the
republican party than ever Mills
could have done, which causes the
republicans to greatly rejoice.
The Mills men say that Springer,
the new head of the ways and
means committee, is "neither a safe
nor an efficient leader." The repub
licans knew this all along, and this
is one of the reasons why he suits
them so well.
The free trade leaders will have to
look out or the south will soon
begin to demand a McKinley bill
for her special benefit. The leading
democratic organ of South Carolina
the Charleston News and Courier,
favors a protective tariff on cotton
mexicos revolutionists are
causing considerable trouble just
now on each side of the Rio Grande,
but most of the trouble goes to the
revolutionists themselves, as the
United States troops and Texas
rangers are after them as well as
the government troops of Mexico.
The record of 1891 will id al
probability stand unbeaten for
several years to come in the matter
of wheat shipments to Europe, as
the shipments have been much
greater than ever before, and they
would have beeu still greater if

Less than a year ago three Ne
braska congressmen went to Wash

Petitions are pouring into the
national capital in steadily increas
ing numbers urging congress to
enact legislation for the free deliv
ery of mail in the country districts

Both projects are praiseworthy and

manded by the people of the nation

The dispatches this morning
look more like war with ;Chile than
ever. They report that Admiral
tiherardi will take charge of the
naval forces and that General Miles
will have charge of the land forces
and that as soon as war is declared
he will leave with 10,000 men from
the regular army for Chili. These
forces are to be taken from the
frontier or western posts and their
places supplied by the pnlisiment
of western frontiersmen.
TnE McKinley bill, now a law,
will rank in importance and in its
beneficial effect upon the country
and its industries next to the
Morrill Tariff bill. It embodies the
doctrine of Protection to American
industries. It adheres to the
principle laid down by Washington,
MadisOn and the founders of the
government. It aims to protect
home industries nnd home inte
rests by laying a tax on all foreign
products brought to this country
to be sold in competition with
American products and admitting
free of tax or duty all non-compet-
ng article brought here from other
countries which cannot be success
fully produced in the United States.
t would be almost impossible to
frame a perfect tariff bill, or one
free from objections, or that would
suit all interests. Taken all in
all, however, the law just passed is
a wise measure, framed in the inte
rests of the whole people, American
ndustries and home markets.
