SENATOit IlANNA is reported one
yote short of the ;requisite majority
today, but the faith in his management
is such that most people believe he
will get the votes he needs when the
time coupes, nd will b elected.
Bolln, Hartley, Moore, Whitney
and Mills have all been sentenced to
the penitentiary in Nebraska during
the past few months, for being too
free with public money, says an ex
change. Speaking of hopeful signs of
the times, who could ask for anything
better than that?
In the Ohio legislature yesterday
the two houses voted separately and
Ilanna received a majority of one
vote. If he does as well today, when
the two houses meet in joint session,
he will be able to succeed himbelf in
the United States senate. Uis
friends are hopeful, but his enemies
seem far from giving up the fight.
OMAIIA is in the toils again, pri

of the nee si notices the law creating
the excise board has been attacked
and labeled bad by the district court.
The police have to guard the city ball
for fear a popse might steal it, and
general turmoil prevails. Tbe license
notices seem to be a sort of Klondike
which the whole city must take a hand
in fighting for. To the average tax
payer up there present conditions
must make him weary.
There are all kinds of trouble in
store for a number of republicans in
this state, and all because Bartley
does not propose to be made the
scapegoat for the republican party,
says the Nebraska City News. He
holds a number of i. o. u's given by
men who have now deserted him and
he threatens to make a clean breast of
the whole transaction. This is what
will cause the trouble: Section 124
of the criminal code of this state, un
der which Hartley and Moore were
convicted, provides that if any person
6h ill advise, aid or in any manner
participate in tho act of a public
officer, charged with the collection.

ment of funds, in converting to
his own use, investing or loaning
such funds he shall be guilty of em
bezzlement, and be punished by from
one to twenty-one years. Thi9 means,
in plain language, that not only the
man who borrows from a state
officer, but also the ono who ad
vises him to make such loan is liable
to indictment, conviction and sentence
just the same as if each was the public
The progress that has been made in
this country in financial independence
and stability is illustrated in the re
cent sale of the Union Pacific railroad
and the payment therefor, says the
Chicago Tribune. This transaction
required the transfer of $68,000,000,
which has been accomplished in the
space of six weeks without appreciable
disturbance of the money market.
And yet it is only twenty-five years
since the payment to this country by
Great Britain of $15,500,000 under the
Geneva awaid on the Alabama claims
was made to extend through a period
of several months in order to produce
as little disturbance as possible in the
money market of the strongest nation,
financially, in the world. Has
America, in a quarter of a century,
grown so much stronger financially
than England ?
Marcus A. Hanna was elected to
the United States senate yesterday
from Ohio by a majority of one vote.
While the majority was not large, yet
it was eminently satisfactory to tbe
friends of Mr. Hanna, who had bfn
alarmed at the outlook which first con
fronted them after the opposition had
organized the legislature. Foraker
and his understudy, Kurtz, were de
feated in their effort to ruin Hanna
and they have received such condem
nation at the hands of their own party
as will doubtless call for retirement.
EVER since Mr. William J. Bryan
first became a conspicuous political
figure he has shown a marked incapa

louic-al way, great puolic questions.

It is easy to understand the reasons
for the great abundance of money in
western banks which is reported in
the dispatches, says the Globe-Democrat.
Financial confidence was res
tored by the overthrow of the Bryan-
ites and the accession of the republi
cans to power. The sale deposit
vaults and the other receptacles in
which cash was hidden during the
panic gave up the hords of money.and
it went to the banks and passed into
trade channels. The business activity
which came at the same time and the
advance in prices of grain enabled the
farmers to pay off their debts and ac
cumulate a little surplus, and this
went to the banks. Thus the west is
in a far better financial condition at
this moment than it was before at any
time in the last dozen years, money is
plentiful, and everybody takes a hope
ful view of the situation.
A GEORGIA HEN COOP.

a reporter, "than one of our Georgia

who loves better the products of the

gome time ago, a customer of mine who
had a fancy for chickens and who had
always had more or less trouble in
maintaining ownership of them told me
he had a remedy and asked me to go
around with him and see it. I wanted
him to tell me what it was, but he in
sisted on my seeing it first, so I went
along with him. and in a few minutes I
was standing in his back yard before I
what was to me tho oddest chicken
coop I ever saw. It was constructed of
largo timbers and there were a dozen
places in its walls where a hand could
bo run in and everything cleaned out
within reach. Then there was no fas
toning on the door, nor was there any
kind of protection to the fowls. I
couldn't understand how such an in
viting snap could be of any nse to the
owner and said as much.
" 'The charm is in the timber,' said
" 'No,' said I.
" 'Fact, just the same,' said he. You
don t see it on the outside and you don't
know it, but the darkies around here
do, and they won't come within 100
yards of that coop if they can help it. I
don't care how full of chickens it is.
'Cause why? It is built of the timbers
of a gallows on which a man was hung
about three months ago in another coun
ty. It cost me something extra to get it,
but it has more than paid for itself
since I have had it. and I am in the
market now to bny all the secondhand
scaffolds in Georgia. If you run across

INFORMATION AND OPINION).
As THE time of the spring election
comes on there is much discussion of
candidates for the several offices. The
sentiment among republicans seems
to be quite strong in favor of H. N.
Dovey for mayor. H. N. is a hustler,
is largely interested in the town and
would without a doubt make a win
ing fight for the office, and, what is of
equal importance, he would matce a
first-class executive." John Unruh's
name receives flattering mention in
the same connection, and R. B.
Windham is also mentioned for the

The old mariage de convenance, whioh
oaused so much sorrow and consequent
evil in former days, when a cirl was
taken out of a convent to bo shown the
man to whom she was about to be mar
ried, is now a thing of the past. It must
be acknowledged, however, that mar
riages are still made up, often too has
tily and superficially, by nicely balanced
family arrangements and by the inter
vention of friends. Nevertheless, attrac
tion and repulsion are now taken into
consideration, and a girl is no longer
forced to marry a man whom she posi
tively dislikes. I could quote instances
in the very highest (historical) aristoc
racy where, at the last moment, after
the trousseau had been sent in (marked,
according to custom, with the united
initial letters of the two names elabo
rately embroidered) and all the social
preparations made, the marriage was
broken off because the bride had de
clared that she could not "get accus
tomed" to the bridegroom nor endure
the idea of seeing his face in her home
during her natural life. In one of these
instances the family lamentations over
the initials of the trousseau were really
amusing. Fortunately a substitute was
soon found whose name, like that of the
rejected suitor, began with an X, and
the complications were thus happily
The great object of the French girl's
life is marriage. From the time of her
birth her parents have prepared for this
event, and in many cases they have con
siderably straitened their income and
curtailed their enjoyments to make up
her dot. Every girl in every class is ex
pected to have something. Those who
have nothing are exceptions and consti
tute a minority of old maids. The girls
who from choice do not marry generally
become nuns, usually much against the
wishes of their parents. The old tales
of young women being forced into con
vents to improve the position of their
brothers are forgotten in these days,
when, while no child can on any pre
tense be deprived of a share in the fa
tner s inheritance, monastic vows are
not recognized by law. Nuna and spin
sters are exceptions; marriage is the
When a girl is of age to be introduced
into society, her friends and relatives
immediately look out for a suitable hus
band, whom it is considered highly de
sirable to obtain before she has reached
the age of 21, that she may not be pro
claimed fille majeure when the banns
are published. The principal considera
tions are equality of birth, of position,
of fortune, and in the last particular
the scale is usually expected to weigh
rather more on the side of the young
lady, especially if the young man, in
addition to sufficient present advantages,
can bring forward a number of relatives
not likely to live long. This is called
having hopes (des esperances beaucoup
d esperances). If the young lady with a
substantial dot can also show a satisfac
tory background of invalid uncles and
aunts, then everything is as it should
be, and the young people are brought
together with every prospect of a favor
able conclusion. It happens, however,
too often that they do not know each
other sufficiently, and that they are per
suaded to believe that the mutual liking
is greater than it really is. Sometime
this sort of undefined attraction ripens
into a deep and devoted love. When
this occurs, there are no more affection
ate wives or more faithful widows than
More frequently, especially in the
higher classes, a sort of cool friendliness
springs up, where they see but little of
each other, and freedom is enjoyed on
both sides. The authority of the hus
band is less felt than in an English
household. There is a sort of under
standing that in her home the wife is
queen and settles matters as she pleases.
But their best and warmest feelings
are awakened by all that concerns their
children. French parents are perhaps
the most affectionate in the world. The
interests and welfare of their children
are their first consideration, and won
derful sacrifices of their own pleasure
and enjoyment are made in favor of
their sons and daughters by the most
worldly men and women. These are
taken as a matter of course; no one
thinks of doing otherwise or of seeing
any merit in such acts.
The mothers especially are unequal-
ed. Nothing will stand in the way of a
Frenchwoman where her children's in
terests are concerned. This love is so
engrossing that it swallows up every
other. They are more mothers than
wives, and if called upon to choose be
tween allowing a husband to go alone
on a foreign mission or leaving their
children they would not hesitate. "Mes
enfants avant tout."
