In the opinion of the republican
state central committee, Nebraska
this year raised the biggest crop of
prevaricators ever before known in
the history of the state. It is the only
way we can account" for the slump of
Senator Thurston's 60,000 tepublican
majority and Chairman Post's 30,000
republican majority to a populist vie
tory of almost equal dimensions.
IN the grand rush for the populist
pie counter the cheerful face of Bill
Dech, the pioneer populist is painfully
missing. Bill, however, has one con
solation that is worth mure than all
the pie in enristendon, he really
helped to save the country, and while
through his efforts McKinley has not
succeeded in Nebraska, yet Bill's
head was right and his efforts were in
the right direction.
The newspapers with one accord
since the clash of comets and boom of
Nebraska populism, are inquiring

years, but it has entirely disappeared
from popocraiic circles and its place is
taken by "What shall we do with Bry

study Spanish and become a Spanish
orator he might go to Mexico and pre
side over a republic that would be to
his liking. Of course there are no
plutocrats in Mexico, bcciuse they
have free coinage of silver. Poverty,

lotment down that way, but we have
heard of some gigantic fortunes there,
just the same, as a result of mining
ventures. Billy might hunt up some

Auditor-elect Cornell shows
the right kind of spirit. He resides
at the little town of Verdon, which is
not much larger than Mynard, yet he
has selected lrom this town C. W.
Pool as deputy, John W. Simpson as
bond clerk and Samuel Leighty as in
surance deputy. A man who will not
stand up for his personal friends is
not much of a man. We are not ac
quainted with Mr. Cornell, but we
confess his style suits us. Most men
after having been accidentally elected
to office take to spreading out all over
the state and appointing strangers to
good offices on the theory of political
policy, while the friends who have
been faithful and true arej left to feed
on husks and disappointments.
Brother Cornell show the right spirit,
and we stop the press to offer con
gratulations. IX printing a statement of fact TnE
NEWS always tries to be absolutely cor
rect: we find, however, in the matter
of the water company case at Omaha
we were somewhat in error. We find
from the record, that Sirs Chapman
and Sullivan did not withdraw the
case as they reported here, but on the
contrary the federal court there dis
missed their bill. The petition for re

Major McKinley and General
Prosperity seem to be two titled
gentlemen who are very closely re
lated. The talk about Mr. Pingree of
Michigan weakening the state ticket
by his candidacy for governor turned
out very differently, his vote being a
few thousand larger than McKinley .

L. C. BATEMAN, the populist nom
nee for governor in Maine, has re
covered his sanity, and 6tates publicly
that the silver issue is dead, and that
the populists will never try to resur

anneared in Chicaco. It is said that
nine-tenths of the Chicago street or

sufficiently exciting for a Kentucky
audience. A man who seems to com

has arranged u fight at Huntington
between a colored pugilist named

The world's wheat erop of 1805 is
estimated by one auihority at 2,509,-
000,000 bushels and the crop of 1S9G at
2,365,000,000 bushels. The decline is
less than 6 per cent, but it wipes out
the surplus and advances in price 50
per cent. An increase in consump
tion will act upon prices in the same
way, while a stinted consumption

idle will take the edge off the mar
ket for every product, and make the
narrow margin of difference between
"good limes" and "hard times." Ex
ANOTHER legal farce has been en
acted at Lincoln. Suit was brought
by the state of Nebraska against the
bondsmen of Oil Inspector Hilton for
the sum of $5,000, which Hilton had
kept that belonged to the state. The
testimony was sufficient to convince
an ordinary individual that judgment
ought to have been promptly rendered
against Mr. Hilton and his bondsmen.
After the jury h d been out twenty
four hours on the case, the jurors
finally came into court and declared
they could not agree eight standing
in favor of the state's claim and four
holding out for Hilton. Lincoln courts
already have an unsavory reputation
in the state, and this Hilton suit will
in no wise lessen it.

starting up of industries is evidently

And if there is money enough to start

THE Hon. Arthur Sewall, who an
nounces his belief that "the financial
platform of the next democratic (pop
ocraiic) national convention will be
practically the same as that of this
year," couples with the expression of
that belief a confession which shows
the main source of the silver agita
tion, aside from the artifical impulse
given to it by the owners of silver
mines, says the New York Sun.
"Should there be four years of pros
perity," 6aid Mr. Sewall, "I am in
clincd to think that free silver would
not be the issue, because the improved
condition would seems to obviate the
necessity of a change." That is, only
let hard times continue, give us
plenty of disaster and make us suffi
ciently miserable and we may become
desperate enough to vote for the free
coinage of silver. Gold is all right
in prosperity, but if only everything
will go to smash, the people will turn
to silver. So the prayer of the silver
agitators is for calamity. The more
of it there is, the merrier they are,
and the brighter are their prospects.
They set a bait for disappointment
and despair. Prosperity is veritable
poison to them.
Jerry Simpson, the Kansas popo
craiic philosopher, says the business
revival now beginning is being com
menced at the wrongr end. "There is
no use in starting up the mills," he
says, "uLtil the people are able to
buy goods." Who does be mean by
the people ? Hertofore when he said
"people" he meant farmers, but it
cannot be the farmers, for they have
not been out or work p.nd they are not
empty handed. They have raised two
immense crops in the last two years,
and their granaries are full to over
flowing. As soon as the farmer can
find a purchaser for his products he
will bay, and buy liberally. It is evi
dent to a. man who thinks, that the
remady for hard times must be ap
plied in a way that will increase con
sumption. The laboring men wno
are idle and the sleeping wheels of
the factories must work in unison;
then the farmer's products will be in
demand, and with increased demand
comes increased prices. We have
every confidence in the fact that pros
perity can come in no other way than
the one advocated by the republican
party. Proof has already been fur
nished by the starting of factories and
employment of men all over the east

surplus if we have a market at alL

The fact tnat corn remains low is a

A strange evangelist is in Louisville
preaching the end of the world in
189S. He has the whole scheme
figured out from Biblical prophesies.
Well, what of it? Suppose, the
preacher were correct. Life is but
a span; it brings weariness and care to
more than it brings happiness. What
difference would a few years sooner
or a few years later make? It might
even be taken as comforting to go off
in the rush and confusion of the end
of all things rather than starting out
on the mysterous journey compara
tively alone. If tbe end of all things
comes in 1898 kicking can't binder it.

Tho following ptcm written by Isa
bel Richey, "God's Picture," was
beautifully read by Mrs. Stoutenbor
ough, Mrs. Richey being detained at
home by illness.
Life is a picture, changing ev'ry minute.
Painted anew upon its canvas. Time,
God is the artist, we the ligures in it.
Gathered at will from ev'ry land and clime.
What it has been we read upon the pages.
Order from chaos fulfilled His design.
Crimson and grey clad warriors and sages
Battle and death, the restfulness benign.
What it now is we gaze with eyes unseeing.
Sense is bewildered by its many themes.
Heroes and kings ! He calls them into being
Heroes and kings ! They fade again to dreams.
What it will be. Ah. God In Heaven knowetli.
When at the last His picture is complete.
Yet we believe whatever he bestoweth.
Of light or shade, our portrait shall be s-weet.

President Isaac Lewis of Sabina, Ohio,
is highly respected all through that
pection. ' He has lived in Clinton Co.
75 years, and has been president of
the Sabina Bank 20 years. He gladly
testifies to the merit of Hood's harsa
parilla, and what he fays is worthy
attention. All brain workers find
Jlood'ti Sarsaparilla peculiarly adapted
to their needs. It makes pure, rich,
red blood, and from this comes nerve,
mental, bodily and digestive strength.
"I am glad to say that Hood's Sarsaptr
illla is a very good medicine, especially
as a blood purifier. It has done me good
many times. For several yeaw I suffered
greatly with pains of
in one eye and about my temples, es
pecially at nigut when I had been having
s hard day of physical and mental labor.
I took many remedies, but found help only
in Hood's Sarsaparilla which cared me ot
rheumatism, neuralgia and headache.
Hood's Sarsaparilla has proved itself a true
friend. 1 also take Hood's Pills to keep
my bowels regular, and like the pills
very much." Isaac Lewis, Sabina, Ohio,
