THE Omaha News-Republic, an
evening paper started two years ago,
suspended publication yesterday with
liabilities far in excess of its assets.

Matt Quay thinks if McKinley
were to be chosen president he would
offend all the party leaders before his
term would bo half through. There
is probably some truth in thi3. It is
at least certain that the party bosses
could not use him for any dishonest,
sinister or crooked purpose. And the
people appear to understand this fact.
The administration wing of the dem
ocratic party has called its convention
fnr Lincoln to meet April 29 to select
delegates to their national convention.
The invitation to measure strength
with the silverites at the primaries
was declined with thanks on the
ground that the true test of numeral
strength was given last fall on the
vote for supreme judge, when Ma
honey, tne adminitration candidate,
ran far ahead of the free siver can
With Colonel Colby, ex-Senator J.
D. Pope of Saline and N. V. Harlan of
York in the field as active congress
ional candidates it looks very much as
if tha "too previous" Mr. Hainer
miffht be consigned to the shades of
private life. The result in no con
gressional district in.the state will be
awaited with as much interest as in the
Fourth, which Mr. Hainer not long
ago, was supposed to have a mortgage
on. Let the good work move along.
Either of the first three candidates
would please the people.
In discussing the question as to
whether or not General Manderson is
a stalking horse or a delivery wagon
for some other candidate, the New
York Sun remarks: "The only candi
date who can properly be called a
delivery wagon is the Hon. Thomas
Brackett Reed; and- that in a sense
highly honorable to the speaker. He
has charge of the interests of all the
candidates in common. If he upsets
the vehicle, a republican nomination
this year will be a valueless possession.
'He is at present, and until -congress
adjourns, the custodian of republican
fortunes, no matter who may afterward
become the nominee of the St. Louis
Nebraska is as fertile in point of
candidates as the Hon. John Milton
Thurston is in point of metaphors. The
state prohibition convention has in
structed for the Hon. C. E. Bentley of
Lincoln as the dry man for president.
The Hon. Charles Francis Manderson
is a republican candidate, and the
Hon. Tobias Castor will be a powerful
and moving democratic candidate, and
every lover of 6ilver wheels and cart
wheels will shout for the Hon. Wm.
Jennings Bryan, the boy orator of the
Platte, as the fittest and highest
sounding chap for the populist nomi
nation. Candidates are as thick in
Nebraska now as grasshoppers were
in unhappier days. And speaking of
grasshoppers, the Hon. Julius Sterling
Morton may be a candidate for some
thing himself. New York Sun.
It is freely predicted that McKin
ley will be nominated on the first bal
lot, a compliment seldom bestowed in
this country. In but two of the ten
national conventions held by the re
publican party, has the nomination
been made on the first ballot when
there was a contest. These were the
conventions nominating Fremont and
Harrison. Pointers in advance of
the convention are often illusive. In
1860, Seward, whose nomination was
generally conceded, was defeated on
" tha third ballot, and in 1876, Blaine,
thought to be invincible, went down
on the sixth ballot. Says the Globe
Democrat: "However, present indi
cations are that McKinley will be
stronger in the convention of 1896
than Blaine was in the outset in that
of 1876, and much stronger than
Seward was in 1869. On the first bal
lot Blaine lacked ninety-three votes
that year of .the number required to
nominate. With such fluctuations, he
increased his vote to the end, but od
the last ballot, when all aspirants had
dropped out except Hayes, who won,
and Bristow, Blaine was twenty -eight
votes short of the. number needed.
Conservative estimates at present put
McKinley on the first ballot only forty
or fifty short of the required number.
With that narrow margin between
him and victory it would be impos
sible for his enemies to unite on any
body to defeat him. McKinley is the
' second choice of so 'many men who
have various other aspirants Tor a first
choice that enough votes could not be
concentrated to carry the convention.
It is entirely safe to predict that if
"-JIcKinly comes within seventy-five
votes on the first ballot a .stampede to
him on the second ballot cannot be
TRYING TO CHECK UNDERVALUATIONS.
The appraisers' bill to prevent
frauds upon the Treasury by under
valuations has boon practically agreed
upon with a proviso in it which de
clares that if. the appraised value of
any article of imported merchandise
subject to an ad valorem duty shall ex
ceed by more than 5 per cent, the
value declared in the entry, there
shall be levied, in addition to the
duties regularly imposed by law upon
the article, 2 per cent, of the total ap
praised valuo for every 1 per cent
that the appraised value exceeds the
declared value in the entry. These
duties, running to 109 per cent, of the
value of the goods, may be remitted
only in cases of manifest clerical error
in the declared entry. But when the
appraised valuations exceed oO per
cent, of the declared value, except by
manifest error, the entry shall be held
to bo presumptively fraudulent, and
the collector shall seize the merchan
dise and proceedas in case of forfeit
ure for violations of the customs laws.
And this forfeiture shall apply to the
whole of the merchandise of which
the article found to be fraudulently
undervalued 6hull be a part. This will
be a wholesale reform in the appraise
ment aet,and should result in the stop
page of the ruinous undervaluations.
But another important feature' of
the proposed amendment to the act is
that which proposes to take from the
courts in trials of appealed cases the
questions of fact arising, and limit the
court to the questions of law alone.
This will make certain that the
questions of factconcerning fraudu'ent
undervaluations shall rest upon the
decisions of the appraisers and are
not to be combattsd by testimony of
importers or agents respecting the
actual valuation of goods against which
the charge of undervaluation rests.
This will make the appraisers the sole
judges of the questions of fact respect
ing the value of goods, which is of
tremendous importance. American

covered by a traveling photographer
of Bowling Green several weeks ago.
He stumbled across an opening in the
rocks and following it downward sixty
feet found himself in an immense cave
He got others to accompany him in an
exploration of the cave, and it is al

it will be lighted with electricity, and
that an electric railway will be built

their complaints to "colds," which at
