The present administration has
not made any loud professions of
devotion to the cause of civil service
reform, but it has done ten times as
much for the improvement of the
service as was done by the preced
The democrats are now trying to
carry the campaign on by the anti
silver men howling for Grover Cleve
land for president and the free sil
ver men are howling for Boies of
Iowa, for vice president. If that
isn't stradling the silver plank we
do not know what is.
The Charleston News and Courier
says: "The 'American Protective
Tariff league' has rolled up its
sleeves and taken off its coat for
active work during the presidential
fight now forming." Certainly;
why should it not? It has nothing
to conceal and the more people
know of the McKinley law and the
tariff the better. No law ever spoke
more eloquentlj and persuasively
in its own defense.
Congress is adding to the area of
the Yellowstone park. With its
new boundaries it will be larger
than Connecticut. When the peo
ple at large do more long distance
traveling the value of these incom
parable public preserves will be
er::iie more appreciated. It is a
"'. to us sill that congress is
lg this wonderland more at
i rather than narrowing its
THE SILVER CONFERENCE.
The consent of Great Britian to
participate in the conference ren
ders it high 1 j' probable that Ger
many also will accept the invitation.
There has been no reason to doubt
that France and the other nations
of the Latin Union would accept the
invitation and join with the United
States in an earnest effort to settle
the'vexed question. Their difficulty
has all the time been that they could
not afford to adopt a monetary sys
tem antagonistic to that of Great
Britain and Germany, even with the
support of the United States. But
if all the great commercial nations
could unite upon any plan, so that
the interests of some would no
longer be sacrificed for the benefit
of others, a monetary adjustment
for the whole world might be
reached. It is in the highest degree
creditable to the administration that
it has taken the initiative in the
matter with such success. The sil
ver producing states will assuredly
be brought to realize that, while the
administration can not and will not
assent to free coinage of silver by
the United States alone, throwing
upon the country all the responsi
bilities, risks and sacrifices of an ef
fort to strengthen and broaden the
monetary Jsyetem of the civilized
world, it is nevertheless ready and
anxious to do all that can be done
in conjunction with other" nations
to correct the evils which have
grown out of the disuse of silver.
New York Tribune.
The river and harbor bill passed
by the house makes provision for
the expenditure of about $48,000,000,
or over $11,000,000 more than was ap
propriated by the preceding house.
We have heard a great deal about
the "billion dollar congress," and
here is a specimen of how the dem
ocrats corrected the extravagances
of republican. With two exceptions,
this is the largest bill of the kind
that has ever been passed, and
when the amount of contracts
which it authorizes are considered
it far surpasses any previous one
The most of the money goes to the
south, of course, as that section not
only has more creeks and sloughs
than any other, but also casts more
democratic votes. It was not at all
difficult to get a quo ram for the
passage of a measure that is thus
profitable to that part of the
country. The democratic ii. embers
were all in their seals anil were
eager to vote frr it. Mr. Ilolniwn
made a perfunctory opposition to
some of its features, but it went
through, nevertheless, by a major
ity of 115). The south demanded its
passage, and what the south de
mands she always gets when the
democratic party has the power to
give it to her.
This is only a portion, however,of
the appropriations made and to be
made by the present house. The
total to date, with the additions
that are unavoidable, is at least
$T0,000,000 in excess of the amount
appropriated at the first session of
the last republican congress.
These figures thoroughly refute the
democratic pretenses of economy,
and 6how that not a cent is to be
left in the treasury if the house can
have its way. Every democratic
member has a job of some kind in
the interest of his district, and the
aggregate of such schemes is un
precedented in all the history of the
The Handsomest Lady in Plattsmouth
Remarked to a friend the other

perior remedy, as it stopped her
cough instantly when other reme

its merits any druggist will give

A Strange Uennioo.
A strange reunion took place at the
Dunning Insane asylum Thursday after
noon, an error on the part of a criminal
court bailiff leading to the meeting of
husband and wife, who thought each
George and Len HJJhan lived hap
pily kt Oak Park. One night, not so
long ago, George did not come home at
his nsual hour, and his wife started to
look for him. IIo returned honio and
then went out on a hunt for her. While
she was wandering around the police
picked her up, and after a short stay at
the Detention hospital she was Bent to
Dunning, her identity being unrevealed.
Almost the same performance was gone
throuerh with the husband. He was to
be sent to the poorhouse, but an intelli
gent bailiff got him mixed with an in
sane patient named Larson and he was
sent to the asylum.
The chief physician, who knew Hill
man, soon straightened the case out
when "Larson" was places on the books,
He learn eu the unfortunate man's story,
and Wednesday located the wife in one
of the cottages occupied by women.
The matter was reported by Superm
tendent Sawyer to the county commis
sioners, and Thursday, in the presence
of Commissioners Spofford, Ballard and
Stanber, the reunion took place. Hill-
man will stay at the poorhouse until his
wife is well enough to leave the asylum.
Hot Weather In Gold Fields.
The new African gold fields are prov
ing profitable beyond all expectations. It
was prophesied about one year ago that
the output of the Witwatersrandt dig
gings would reach 70,000 ounces in De
cember, 1891, and one year later 110,000
ounces. Already the first prophecy has
been borne out, the average being about
75,000 ounces a month. It is a warm
thought and not unpleasant still, that
when the latest reports from Natal were
written, from which the facts above
were taken, and when the people of this
country were shivering before the blasts
of winter, Natal was 6imply scorching
under a temperature of 120 degs. in the
shade, a figure which was reached on
several occasions during Christmas
week. All trade was abandoned, the
people being content to exist without
exertion in such an awful heat. Pitts
Needs of a Physician.
The physician needs more mental di
version. It would be well for him to cul
tivate flowers, to study some science, or
some department of history, literature
or art, or to take up some simple mechan
ical occupation, to which he could turn
from time to time for refreshment.
He needs more active exercise. It
would be well for him of tener to sub
stitute the bicycle for the carriage. He
needs more sleep, too fully seven hours
and as his sleep is often broken in upon
at night, he should form the habit of
sleeping at odd moments, even by day.
