Thirty-five ye irs. twenty-rive years,

To have lived thirty-live years in
Nebraska, a newspaper has borne con

has done well its part and earned an
honorable place among the immortal

GOOD MOVE FOR BRYAN.
Representative II r van argued before
the committee having his joint resolu
tion in charge, upon an amendment to
the constitution providing for the elec
tion of senators by the vote of the peo
ple. Mr. Bryan favored leaving it op
tional with each state to accept or re
ject popular elections of senators. He
did not believe a compulsory plan
could b carried, as the senate
would not agree to it unless there was
some provision preventing federal in
fluence in th election. "I believe
that, there is a great public demand for
this thing, said Mr. 13ryan; "yet I
know that it will be combat ted. There
fore, I am anxious to adopt the propo
sition most likely to be acceptable to
both sides of the house. If you o:ico
give the people tho right to elect their
senators. I do not believe that right
can ever be taken from them. The
amendment which we propose gives to
both sides a fair chance. It does not
take from the south and from those
those who fear a force bill anjT safe
guard which they have now. If a
force bill should come and an attempt
be made to apply it to the election of
United States senators, they are free
under this amendment to go back to
the election of senators by their state
legislatures and have every security
they have today. And if, on the other
hand, thero are those who are in favor
of the government controlling elect ions
in the states, I say to theni that in this
measure they are Dot yielding uj a
single right that they have todaj. If
you adopt this measure, it gives each
state the right to determine for itself
how it will elect. National Tribune.

""What was wool worth then?"
"Why, cargoes were, shipped from
Australia and Thibot from 7 to 13 cent-)
a pound. Soon as they paid the lOcent
duty to get it into the United States
these foreign wools wore worth from
17 to cents tho price of our wool."
""Thou our wool was 10 cents a pound
higher than Thibet wool.'"
"Certainly. Tho wool fell in value
in tho United States on accounts of the
immense crop of wool made on ehean
public lands in Australia, but our wool
has always been 10 rents a pound
higher than foreign wool. The Mc
Kinley bill has benefited our farmers.
When the Wilson bill takes off this
duty you will soeour wool will only be
worth as much as cheap Australian
wool, with the freight added. When
Mr. Wilson talks about free wool in
creasing the price of wool in America,
lie is talking foolishness. Wilson
says 'free wool will enable onr manu
facturers to send cloth to Europe.'"
-Will it do this?"
"No; we will never shio one yard of
cloth or one knit shirt, or one yard of

Senator Hill is the bull in the demo
cratic china shop just now. and as a
smasher of political crockery he is a
'success.- The first week of the tar') IT
debate brought the free trade demo
cratic Senators throe separate defeats;
small in themselves, but still defeats.
The free traders are bewildered.
They are asking each other "where
are we at?" in piteous tones, and no
one can give them a definite answer.
The second we;k opened even more it;
auipiciously for them with Senator
Hill's bold declaration of war against
the tariff bill as it now stands. While
Senator Hill's heaviest artillery is
trained upon the income tax clause of
the bill he intimates very strongly that
tho bill will not be satisfactory tohun
even with the income tax struck out.
It is an open secret in Washington
that Mr. Cleveland is in sympathy
with Senator Hill's attack on the in
come tax, indeed, Senator Brico is
authority for the positive statement
that Mr. Cleveland is strongly opposed
to the income tax. M. Urice does not
hesitate to say that he is also opposed
to the income tax, but he says he has
not yet decided how he will vote if he
fails to get it struck out and also to get
souio other amendments he wishes
adopted. Hill, Brice, and the other
dissatisfied democrats would gladiy
make a combination with Repnblican
Senators to strike out the income tax
and to amend the bill in a number of
schedules, making the duties between
those named in the bill and those in
the McKinly law, but the republicans
are not in a combining mood. Ihey
consider that the chances for defeating
the bill have increased for some time
past and are not disposed to accept
anything less than its defeat, at least
not at this stage of the proceedings.
It will oe time enough to talk about
compromises three or four months from
now, if in the meantime the bill has
not been absolutely beaten or sidetracked.

Representative Caldwell, of Onio,
who was elected mayor of Cincinnati,
the other day, received an ovation
when he returned to Washington Sat
urday. He will retain his seat in the
houso until May 1, but will probably
resign the chairmanship of the repub
lican congressional campaign commit
tee this week. His colleagues will bo
sorry to have him leave Washington,
but they are confident that he will re

The republicans of the house are
making it plain to the democrats in
that body, that it needless for them to
attempt to do any polntcal business
without a quorum of their own. Tho
republicans are not disposed to make
the point of '"no quorum" against the
regular appropriation bills or other
necessary business, but inasmuch as
there are 21S democrats in the house,
they wi I insist that 17!) of them shall
vote when partisan legislation is to be
taken up or passed.
The democrats in the house have
boon quarrelling among themselves
ever since the beginning of the extra

bank currency. So ingor, of Illinois,
chairman of tho committee of banking
and currency, is opposed to repeal, and
