Mr. and Mrs. O. F. Dean of South

day after a pleasant two weeks' visit

of the poor farm. Mr. Dean hurried
home to put in a good McKinley vote,
but he felt that the state was safe for
the sound money champiou.
The farmers of the country have
been benefitted by the advance in
wheat to the extent of over $90,000,000
since July; and if it were true, us the
Bryan organs absurdly claim, that
this result has been brought about by
Chairman Hanna for political pur
poses, then he would certainly be one
of the best friends they ever had. Ex.

part of the state was reached, when
the snow turned into rain. There was

ing for McKinley, those for Bryan bad
to take a back seat. However, all
were given a seat of bocor at dinner,

night he was not so anxious to Hud

Bryan admirer and he thinks the

with $10. Charley Hall took him up.
On their way to Seligsohn's, There
the money was to be posted, Mr. Sul
livan suggested that they make the
wager $50 a side instead of $10. Mr.
Hall was agreeable and the crowd
which was following them cheered
him for bis confidence. When they
arrived at Seligsohn's Mr. Sullivan
changed his mind and backed squarely
out of the bet. The crowd hooted, but
he stuck to his intention to keep his
money. State Journal.

Ke Foundation to the Personal Claims
Made by Gov. Holcomb Republican Of
ficials Have Entire Control of State In
stitutions and the Disbursement of Funds.
; i
; The claim made by Governor Hol
comb that-he has saved $200,000 to the
state during his term of office by reason
of his economical administration of state
affairs will not stand even the most su
perficial investigation. In the first place,
there has been no such saving. In the
second place, the governor has nothing
whatever to do with the expenditure of
6tate moneys. The governor appoints
the heads of all state institutions except
the two industrial schools, which are
appointed by the board of public lands
and buildings; commander of soldiers'
home at Milford, appointed by above
board and approved by the governor,
and superintendents of industrial home
at Milford, and home of the friendless
at Lincoln, appointed by a board of
lady managers.
Supplies for all institutions are pur
chased by the board of purchase and
supplies, consisting of the governor as
chairman, commissioner of public lauds
and buildings as secretary, the secre
tary of state, attorney general and state
treasurer at present four republicans
and one populist. The law requires that
the secretary of the board shall adver
tise for bids, that the board shall meet
on the first day of each quarter, and
that bids shall then be opened and contracts-awarded
to lowest responsible
bidder. The contracts for supplies are
then enforced by the board of public
lands and buildings, of which the gov
ernor is not a member.
Section 19 of the constitution defines
the powers and duties of the board of
public lands and buildings as having
charge and supervision of all buildings,
grounds and lauds of the state, and all
institutions except those for educational
The legislature of 1877 (section three
revised statutes) under the heading,
"Custody of Buildings," gave force to
the above provision. Under the head
ing, "Disbursements of Funds" (sec
tion four), the statute says: "The said
board shall have power, under the re
striction of this act, to direct the gen
eral management of all the said institu
tions and be responsible for the proper
disbursements of the funds appropriated
for tfieir maintenance," etc. Under
section six the board is given power to
pass upon accounts of the "public offi
cers" or heads of these institutions.
Under section 6, the board having passed
upon accounts, the auditor is directed to
issue warrants in payment thereof.
-Thus it will be seen that the governor
has nothing at all to do with the control
or management of state institutions, or
the auditing, approving or payment of
bills contracted, those duties being en
tirely within the scope of the board of
public lands and buildings, of which he
is not even a member. But if Gov.
Holcomb is correct when he states that
the sum of $200,000 has been saved dur
ing his administration, the credit would
be due to the board of public lands and
buildings. This board would be glad to
have the credit for the saving. The
fact is, however, that the appropriations
are barely sufficient for the ruuuing ex
penses of theN state and state institu
tions, and with six months of the bien
nial period yet to run it may appear
that they are insufficient. Still the
board believes that by the practice of
economy in all directions, in keeping
with the policy of the past two years,
the appropriations will be made to suf
fice. The legislature of lc-93 appropriated
$792,610 for expenses of state govern
ment and institutions. The legislature
of 1895 appropriated $780,276. A saving
it will be noticed, of $12,000.
It is true, too, that there are more
people to care for than ever before, aud
this is done with a smaller appropria
tion. A comparison of cost of supplies
during three years shows that a con
siderable saving has been effected.
For instance:
Lump coal was worth $3.70 in 1893
and $2.99 in 1896. Other grades about
the same.
Men's shops in 1893 were $2.50. In
1895 and lfe96, only 96 cents and $1.10.
Women's shoes in 1893 were $1.77, in
1896 only $1.10. .
Coffee 1893, 22c per lb.; 1856, 15.
Syrup 1893, 23c to 27c per gal.; 1896,
Sugar Extra O, 1893, $5.40 per cwt.;
18D6, $4.99. Granulated, 1893, $5.90 per
cwt.; 1896, $4.99. I
All wool suits in 1893 cost $3.00, now
only $5.00.
Muslin and flour unchanged.
The reader will thus see how the
greater number of people can be cared
for in 1895 and 1896 at less expense.
Some people may think it is a light
fhing to mislead the public for political
purposes, but the members of the board
of public lands and buildings would
rather tell the truth than be governors.
The records of the several offices in
the state house occupied by republicans
are always open to the public for inspec
tion during office hours, and the board
invites inspection. Each official is ready
at any and all times to account for his
stewardship. ;
Nebraska's Man of Destiny.
Hon. Jack MacColl, the man whom
destiny has selected to be the next gov
ernor of Nebraska, is a fine, whole
souled gentleman, who makes friends
wherever he goes, and if he only had
the time to travel all over the state, not
only every republican, but every intelli
gent democrat, would rote for him. He
is an earnest, sincere man, honest in
every fiber of his being, and will maks
an ideal governor of this great com
monwealth. Let every republican and
every democrat who loves the state and
wishes to Bee it prosper vote for Jack
MacColl. Syracuse Journal.
Perpetrated Upon the People by Hoyt
Co , of Chicago.
One of the colossal popocratic fakes
of the present campaign, says the
Lincoln Call, came to light this morn
ing. The press' dispatches through
out the country conveyed the surpris
ing information that the Hoyt & Com
pany grain- firm of Chicago had
donated to Mr. Bryan, and particular
ly to the popocratic campaign fund, a
house and two lots located in this city
valuedat $18,000 in cold silver. An
investigation of the records pertain
ing to the property in question give
some startling results. The property
named consists of lots sixteen (16) and
seventeen (17), block ten (10), in that
part of Lincoln called Junction place.
A mo tgage on the same for $600 was
given by one Dan E. Bixby to the
Mead state bank of York, Neb. This
mortgage was afterwards assigned to
Hoyt and company of Chicago and a
quit claim for the whole property
given. The records further show the
lots assessed at a valuation of $150 and
the back taxes for the year '95, yet un
paid, are placed at $5.98.
This is the $18,000 gift the people
read about in the morning papers. On
the best authority attainable it is
claimed that the property would not
sell under the hammer for more than
$200. It certainly seems that this firm
of Hoyt & company bad an eye to
business when it made a play that
gave it national advertising for the
meager sum of $200. And the part
Mr. Bryan plays in this is anything
but commendable. Mr. Bryan ought
to know as well as any man in the city
that no two lots in Junction Place
could be worth $18,000. Yet he ac
cepts the gift with thanks and there
by becomes a party to the deception
practiced upon the people. Anything
for sympathy. Anything to play upon
the passions of tbe American voters.
Remember Flag Day.
Do not forget that tomorrow is re
publican "flag day" and every believer
in sound money is expected to display
the national emblem from residenee
or business room, or both. Chairman
Hanna has has made this request and
the whole country seems inclined to a
favorable response by making the day
a memorable one. The issues this
time, affecting national honor as well
as personal prosperity, make the flag
a significant emblem for the patriotic
followers of the sound money cause.

A Big Rainfall.
The rain that set in yesterday af
ternoon at 4 o'clock and continued all
night long was the heaviest that has
visited this section in years. The
rain was general all over this state
and Iowa and in this county a great
deal of damage was done to bridges,
roads and culverts. The precipita
tion, according to the guage at the
B. & M. depot, was 3 and 8-10 inches,
while at the institute for the blind
the puage showed 3 and 4-10 inches.
The whole face of the. earth for a time
last night was a perfect sheet of water
and the storm was accompanied by
considerable thunder and lightning.
This is the heaviest rainfall we have
had in years and the nearest to it was
the rainfall of 2 and 3-4 inches in two
hours one day in September, 1895.
