Of any Cass County Paper.
Lincoln said a great many goo d
things that are worth repeating, and
this is one of them: "If ever thia free
people, if this government itself, is
ever entirely demoralized, it will come
from this incessant human wriggle and
struggle for office, which is but a way
to live without work."
The effort to make any thing a legal
newspaper that bore the name, failed
iu the house yesterday, and the pre
sent satisfactory and fair law will con
tinue on the statute books. A paper
must have 200 bonafide subscribes for
fifty-two weeks before it can have
standing as a legal newsp iper.
The Douglas county ballots were
sent to Lincoln yesterday to be counted
on the amendment proposition along
with the rest of the counties. Attorney
Churchill's cheap bluff did not count
for much, and he might have saved
his grand stand play which only
served to disgust honest republicans.
A GENTLEMAN by the name of
Stevenson arrived at Bloomington,
Ills., the other day with his family
where a few years ago he was a pro
minent resident. Me had been for
gotten during his absence and but few
of his old acquaintances recognized
him, and the general opinion pre
vailed that be was dead, but he was
only Cleveland's vice president, who
emerged from obscurity on the 4th
day of March.
The flippant manner in which some
newspapers refer - to the shameful
crimes of Moore and Bartley is neither
smart nor funny and is not calculateu
to breed respect for the laws oi our
land. These men should be made to
feel that the enormity of their crime
is such that it will be a warning to
others not to attempt such a lino of
rascality and thus the state may bo
saved such humiliating evidence of
The State Journal is getting more
free advertising out of the scheme of
inviting opinions as to whether or not
they should print the result of the
"physical contest" at Carson, than
could have been secured by auj' other
means. During the time they are
getting the opinions of the people on
the question they are probably per
fecting arrangements to get a full re
port of the "mill" which will be
highly appreciated by their patrons.
PLATTSMOUHTU has one of the
most economical and conservative
school boards in the state. While the
strictest economy has prevailed, the
efficiency of the schools has been
fully maintained. If the taxpayers
want this sort of an administration,
and we believe they do, Messrs. D. B.
Smith and Dr. Cook should be re-elected
to succeed themselves on the board.
and if we mistake not the temper of
this tax-ridden community, we be

if any opposition.
As the board of county commission
ers adjourned some days ago to meet
March 16, the letting of contract last
evening for extensive repairs on the
old jail by two members of the board
will Hardly bind the county. The
commissioners have the same right as
any other taxpayer to oppose or favor
the new jail project, but when peti
tions are in circulation which they
will have to act upon a haste to ex
pend money on the old hulk might
turn out very ill advised.
The senate, by a tie vote tho lieutenant-governor
casting the deciding
ballot refused to investigate . the
charge of D. E. Thompson about the
lobby having control of that honorable
body. It looks like "D. E. T." at
this writing had made a mistake in
not purchasing the proffered "inHoo
enco," as the measure specially
aimed at his gas interests is now cer
tain to pass the senate, though it is
an infamous measure, allowing the
city council to saddle a half million
debt onto the city without leaving it
to a vote of the taxpayers, as the pres
ent law requires.
t The condition of the official boud of
the treasurer of the state of Nebraska
is something that concerns every citi
zen. If it is true as believed that Gover
nor Holcomb has been a party to the
approval of what is virtually a straw
bond, the fact should be definitely as
certained at an early date, says the
Kearney Hub. Treasurer Weserve's
predecessor gave a bond for two mil
lion dollars, whereas his own repre
sentf only one million, if the Ilub has
been correctly informed, while the
greater portion of even this reduced
surety is said to be practically valu
less. This state has had enough of
treasury troubles, hence the adminis
tration should while engaged in the
task of betting to rights and enforcing
the law again 8 1 the retiring treasurer,
be just as strict in dealing with the
new one. This is not a pariy matter,
but Is a question of public concern.
K . tl it

tion that can bo urged is the unneces
sary expense that would be rgcn
aered. A man who defaulted tv.enty
j ears ago and against whom no cutu-
plaint has been lodged is free fr:m
prosecution now uo m:Uter what might
bo found. If the legislature wants to
do something sensible let the statute
of limitations with reference to de
faulters aud embezzlers of public
money be repealed so that a prosecu
tion could be maintained i.t ;.r y time
when the facts were known Then let
thc-m make these crimes pun
ishable with penitentiary for life.
W ipe out the pardoning power of the
governor, which is an infamous pre
rogative that 6hould never have been
given, and put a limit to eouti.-iuanoe
so that trials may be speedily con
cluded. This sort of program will do
more good than all the blackmailing
investigations of ancient history that
can be resorted to. We do not object
to a thorough knowledge of what h;is
been done in the past, but we do ob
ject to an appropriation of $10,000
made for the sole purpose f celling
up populist political capital.
TnOMAS E. Watson, in the New

What is there a man won't do for
money? This question is jinpiiasi.tu
by the t eport that ex-Senator John J.
Ingalls has gone to Carton, Nevada,
to report the prize tight for the New
York Morning Journal. A college
graduate, a lawyer, an oiator and
statesman who has held the office wiih
credit, next to the presidency, is about
to engage in reporting prize fights for
a newspaper. What a prostitution of
brains and culture for p-jlf, and dirty
pelf at that.

It is also said that the secretary, who
is a French scholar, wns able to con

the diplomatic language of the world.
A PliETTV fair indication of the
policy to be pursued toward Cuba by
M .-Kinley . may be inferred from the
fact that Consul General Lee h .s been
asked to remain at his post. There
will be no successor appointed for the
present, and his efforts in behalf of
American citizens will receive a, very
different support than w is given by
Cleveland and the beneQci iries of tho
Mo: a claim.
W. II. Alexandei:, representing
the Omaha Smelting works, is in
Washington trying to get a low duty
on lead ore in the interest of the Om
aha firm. This is the same outfit
that was so active in fighting republi

they were not especially eutitied lo
any shading of the protectivd ta' iff
principle for their benefit.
Philosopher Makvin. who pre
sides over the destinies of the G ge
County Democrat, treats 'Gene Moore
very leniently with reference to his
defalcation. Be says that if Moore
had turned the money into the state
treasury, Bartley would have gotten
away with it, and so long as it had to
be stolen 'Gene was more entitled to
it than Bartley.
Senator Farkell. who slugged
the Crete editor, apologized to the
senate jesterday for his act of dis
courtesy to that honorable body. Don't
wait, though, until the editor apologi
zes to anyone, but glance at his as

The newly-appointed private secret
tary to Senator Hanna is a brother of
Mrs. Willard Kimball of the univer
sity school of music of this city.
William E. Curtis prints the follow
ing in the Chicago Record concern
ing tho emoluments of the fortunate
young man: "Senator Hanna has ap
pointed as his private secretary Mr.
S. A. Perkins, who was president of
the republican college leatruo a few
years ago, and during the last cam
paign acted as assistant to Secretary
Osborn of the national committee at
the New York headquarters. Mr.
Perkins has been in charge of the
national committee headquarters here
siace January 1 and has made many
irieode. Mr. Hanna treats him with
great generosity, and will erive him
his entire salary as senator in addition
lo his regular allowance of $100 a
month on the senate pay rolls, which
will make his -full compensation $6,200
a year. There is probably no other
private secretary in the couutrv who
receives so large a salai v." State

Senator F.irrell of Merrick county
and Editor Bow i by of Crete had a dis
graceful list fight in the senat-3 cham
ber yestei day. Quite an excitement
was created and the ciowd of ladies
pret-ent bnujhj the done at a. lively
gait. One of the men is a pop and the
other a democrat, and the altercation
grew out of some criticisms the editor
mad1 on the senaler. From what we
could learn each deserved a good pom
meling as having more mouth than
brains and a better nose for other
peoples' business affairs than their
own.- Unfortunately the mill was
stopped before either of the combat
ants had received serious injury.
Tho editor of a neighboring country
paper thus gives in his exper e.ice:

the rich man essared to be patronizing
and said: ".My dear madam, I know
that you try to do good among theso
poor people, but I can assure you that
yonr efforts are practically wasted.
They take ycur money and such cloth

to chuckle, I hvAl consider the time
and money well ppeut, " replied tho
woman, with a rnild tiugo of reproof.
"Oh, well, I pappose that jn aro

pause he continued, "If you will dem

it to you just as often as yon can dem

assented and accompanied his philan
thropic caller to her coupe. Loth enter
ed the conveyance and were driven to
the neighbori-cnd cf Eleventh avenue
and Fiftieth street. Tho coupe stopped
in front cf an unsightly tenement. In
silence tho man followed his companion
up two or thv e flights of stairs, and ho
socn was standing in a cheerless room
about 12 feet square. The floor and tho
walls were absolutely barren, and there
were not more than four pieces of furni
ture in sight. One was a small stove,
in which a scant fire was burning.
A middle. v.;iv rjan lav hclpl. ss en a

and a girl eo raggedly clad that their
white skin was visible through mo
than one reuf. A few empty liishea an 1

the stove told their r.iuta story of desti

the three emaciated occupants of the
room tunui their glances upon tho vis
itors touched a Ion? dormant; chord of
tho rich man's heart. He involuntarily
thrust his fii-.gers into Lis vest pocket,
but his companion, laying a restraining
hand upon his arm, advanced to the
cot, and in a delicate aud sympathetic
manner questioned tho sir;!; man re.qaid-
ni himself ana his children, one es

was urgent need of nourishment, aud,

woman knew just what to purchase for

and within a quarter of nn hour a bulky
basket was borne up to the desolate
room by the procer's boy. Speedily the
fire in tho little stovo begr.n to throw
out comforting heat, and by and by tho
grateful odors of cooking were diffcEed.-
