Of Any Cass County Paper.
The now peddler license law in
South Dakota, the legality of which
was questioned, was upheld by a court
of that state, and a few weeks later an
Iowa court declared a similar statute
unconstitutional. In the meantime,

It is said that ex-secretary Whit
ney has expressed the opinion that, if-
the democracy is true to itself, it may
live in hopes of 1000. It is very ap
parent that Mr. Whitney makes r
condition on which he can hedge no
matter what happens during the next
IT 3IAY be a fact that ex-Senator
I'etTer has sold his paper, yet this
does not compel him to give up his
right to express himself through otiier
people's papers. However, the pub
lic may " rest assured that it will be
regaled periodically with Peffer's
views as heretofore.
WITH its usual enterprise, The
News had a reporter on the ground at
Union, within two hours after the
mangled body of Peter Curtis was
found, to look up everything in rela
tion to the probibls murder, which
was one of the nios t brutal ever com
mitted in the couotv.
The vote in New York which
elected Van Wyck was within a few
hundred of the number received by
Mr. Bryan last fall. While the demo
crats are claiming the result iu New
York as a glorious victory, yet the
showing of the previous year was not
so considered when democracy was
snowed under out of sieht.
AFTEK C. J. Smyth has learned
humility, he can profitably engage in
the study of law, says the State Jour
nal. He went into office like a roar-
in"- lion giving the impression that
recreant republicans would be eaten
as t9t as he could get to them. A re
publican supreme court now has to
prod him vigoiously lest parties ac
cused of high crimes die of old age
wait ing for him to make up the issues
and get ready for trial.
IT IS alleged that this government
hss already spent $2,500,000 in fussing
over the pelagic sealing question, says
the State Journal. It is evident that
the game isn't worth the candle
Better make an end of the Pribiloff
herd at once and of the whole con
troversy. ItVtoo much like that fam
ous law Buit between two farmers
about the ownership of a calf which
only ended when the lawyer owned
both farms and the calf wa dead of
CIVIL service has been a g.eat
thing for the efficiency of our postal
system, ine worn is or such a nature
that years of practice and study are
required before a clerk can really be
considered of value to the govern
ment. This is not true of revenue col
lector?, gaugers, storekeepers, etc..
and the placing of these offices under
the civil service rules in order to keep
a lot of Grover Cleveland's satelitesin
omco is a fraud on the public that
President McKinley should lose no
time in overturning.
Mr. Smyth, the demo-pop attorney-
general, tore bis nether garments
during the campaign about the delay
in the trial of Embezzler Hartley.
Now that the election is over and the
court is ready to hear the Bartly case,
the same Mr. Smyth makes affidavit
for delay and gets three more weeks.
xnis is a iuir sample oi reiorm as
dished up by the present state house
gang. The attorney-general should
have beei ready for trial so that Bart-
ley could get .behind the prison bars
where he may do petiace for his crime
withouth so much delav.
In view of the fact that Great
Britain has, against her own inter
ests, refused to concede the claims of
the United States for the preservation
of the Pribiloff herd of seals, so as to
conciliate the Canadian seal fishers.
says the Stale Journal, it is rather
hard lines for her to witness the effort
of the Canadian government to dicker
with the United States with this seal
ing question with a view of granting
the latter peculiar trading privileges
in return for conceding the right of
the United States to stop deep water
sealing. Great Britain bas always
controlled the trade in seal skins for
the reason that a.l the curing, manu
facturing and drying of the raw skins
for the world has been done in Lon
don. Since 6be refused to help us
stop the destruction of the female
seals in deep water, this industry has
fallen off to a great extent. Hence
she has sacrified herself in the sealing
contention for the gratification of
Canada. And now if Canada makes a
dicker on her own account with this
government against the further com
mercial interests of Great Britain,
will be a very unfilial performance.
But like other grown girls, Canada is
prone to look out for herself.
SWIFT & Co. last week purchased
for about $150,000 an abandoned pack
ing plant m St. Paul, .Miun. A small
force of executive men from the Kan
sas City house have been detailed to
the new plant whicii it is proposed to
have in operation in time to enter the
winter packing season for hogs. C.
M. White, reevnt'y tep-tseotative of
the dwifts at Philadelphia, has been
appointed auditor of the St. Paul
pi art aud baa gone there there to take
charge. The plant is a suu.ll one and
will be devoted mostly to supplying
the locil trade there. The Armours
have a plant there which was put in
operation during the la9t sum mer and
which is now doing a thriving busi
ness. The Recognition of St. Paulas
a packing center, only emphaizvs the
fact that Omaha is in the heart of the
packing district, and the time is not
far distant when both Chicago and
Kansas City will be distanced on ac
oounl of the favorable location which
Omaha ho'ds. The completion of the
Armour plant recently begun at Om
aha will give that city the largest and
n.ost complete packing bouse in the
world and the other houses already in
operation there ate not very far be
hind. The entire slate is benefitted
by the rapid growth of this great in
dustry at our doors, as it means a
?hare of p oepet ily for eveiy farmer
in the st tie who feed his co. n instead
of se ling it out by the bushel.
A COMPARISON of the vote cast at
the last election by congressional dis
tricts with the election one jearago
is not without inteiest to those who
watch the trend of pilitical affairs.
Strode's majority in the first district
was 219, which is reversed, and Sulli
van carries the district by 08 votes
a whowing not very encouraging to
reDublicjus. In the second district.
Mercer had 1,575 majority last year,
and Port carries it by 1,884, e. small
republican los. In the thiid district
Maxwell's majority for congress over
Hammond was 4,854; Sullivan's ma
jority was 4,5t'5, a 1 ss to fusion of
over 300. In the fourth district
Stark, pop, had a majority of 1,671,
and Sullivan carried the district by
2,900. In the lifth, Sutherland, pop,
had a majority of 2,711 and Sullivan's
majority was 3,277. In the sixth dis
trict Gieen, pop, had a majority of
4,537, while Sullivan's was over 40
less, he carrying the district by 4,115.
The above showing would not he en

for th'i fact that Post ran behind the

a vcy different showing, but we have

The robbery of taxpayers tu enrich
a ring of aristocrats under the cloak
of a state fair association, as well as
the appropriation to county fairs, is
one of the reforms that will be brought
about when the legislature meets
next year. If a county fair cannot
get along without an appropriation
from th s public treasury, it had better
disband. Snch an expenditure is
wasteful and worte than useless. The
stato board has become so rotten that
it is destined to fa!l to pieces anyway.

plain that their incomes have been re
duced heavily by the competition of
money against money, and this com
petition, which comes from an abund
ant supply, is still at work reducing
the interest rate all over the United
States. It is evident to any thinking
man that the talk of a scarcity of the
circulating medium only comes from
demagogues who wish to secura pub
lic office by raising false issues to de
ceive the masses, or from deluded fol
lowers who do not stop to think or
learn from the facts easily noted by
observant people. It is to be hoped
that no legislative experiments will
be tried in a matter that is doing weil
enough, though congress is quite liable
to attempt some sort of legislation af
fecting the currency.

It -is generally known that slugging is

Some time ago a box-car on the M.

and a quantity of goods, amongst them

The negro Harris, who broke into

sentenced to a yenr in the "pen," was
believed to know - tmmething about it.

panied by two companions, white men,
who were not arrest- d. Y-terday one
of them returned he-i and this morn

asked if he recognized tiny of the dHs
oners there. He t-aid no. Then the
negro, Harris, spoke to him, calling
him by name, whereupon he a Imitted
knowing the uegro. It is believed
that Harris can be induced to tell
what he knows, as he has already re
