TUB demonstration given Mark
Ilanna by his neighbors when here
turned triumphant from Columbusthe
other day to his home at Cleveland,
was almost without a parallel. When
those who know a man b st endorse
him, ho is p etty neat- right.
Cuba continues to keep well to the
front, and if McKinley would show a
.Mad hand to the belligerents right
now it might do them great good in
thoir Btrutrele for liberty. Lot h pain

really in danger from such a sickly
power we can't know it too soon.
Jim Dahlman and Jim Edmisten,
the chairmen of the democratic nnd
populist state central committees are
both ilirting with the boys in the
trenches, each wearing a placard
chalued on his back announcing his
candidacy for governor. But neither
of them can cut any ice until Governor
Holcomb grants his permission. They
are both holding state jobs under exe
cutive appointment. When he looks
over the case and makes up his mind
he doesn't want a third term he will
give the Jims a wink and they will
make the fur llv. Fremont Tribune.
Decent people of Ohio who love
honor and cansisteney, have good rea

TiifcTuE seems to be a general de
mand among republicans all over the
state that Judge M. L. Hay ward of
Nebraska City should be our stan
dard bearer this fall. No man is net
ter or more favorably known in every
county in the state than Hay ward, and
he can chase the fusio-fusees into
their holes in short order. He is a
typical Nebraskan large of body as well
as mind,and would make a chief execu
tive of the state without a superior
anywhere. A man of unquestioned
integrity, and in everyway qualified

The News is gratified to no?e that
the county commissioners will go to
Glenwood tomonow to inspect tie
working of the county poor farm over
there. It is said that people who are
too trifling and improvident to earn a
living are placed on the farm where
they are compelled to earn their own
living by work We hope the board
will rind sufficient encouragement to
adopt a similar plan here and do away
with a regiment of professional men
dicants. The present plan places a
premium on worthltssness and en
courages dead beats to settle here and
work the county for a living. Almost
any change would be" an improvement
on the old system that has prevailed
here for years.
THKexposition souvenir medal are to
have on one side the design of an In
dian spearing a buffalo. This buffalo
business makes us tired. Nebraska
has outgrown the Indian and buffalo
stage and the continuous use of these
figures makes the average layman
weary. Something emblematical of
the wealth and prosperity of the great
state should be shown. The people of
the effete east should be taught to
think of Nebraska as a fertile plain,
producing breadstuffs for the world
and whose rivers have been harnessed
to turn countless wheels in busy fac
tories. The idea of connecting Ne
braskans with Indians and buffaloes
is worse than wrong it is vicious
and a halt can not be called any too
One of the cleanest and brightest of
the younger republicans in Nebraska
is Charles J. Greene of Omaha. He is
a successful lawyer and an orator of
more power than many men whose
names have been heralded far and
wide. Mr. Greene ought to represent
Nebraska in the National senate. He
would make an ideal senator, and
when he got to Washington, he would
not forget the state he represented, or
the friends who had helped him. Al
though he has in a measure kept
aloof from the dirty pool of politics,
yet he has never shirked a political
responsibility or failed to make a
fight In every campaign for the suc
cess of republican principles. Mr.
Greene's standing is such that the
mention of his name for the high of
fice of senator is often heard over the
state and The News hopes to see the
republican party honor itself by his
-lection, either to tucceed Allen or

The strike of the cotton mill opera
tives in New England is an indication
that the trades union does not believe
the tale of the mill owners to the ef
fect that on account of the competion
of tho cheap labor of the southern cot
ton mills they are obliged either to
scnle down vnges or go out of busi
ness, says the State Journal.
The mill owners claim that the
southern mills pay about 40 per cent
less than the New England mills have
been accustomed to pay, and " hence

the market at less than it costs to the
New England establishments. This
tho operatives deny and say that the
per cent of difference is much less and
that the efficiency of the New Eng
land operatives is enough greater to
counterbalance the low wages in the
The strike is therefore organized to
test the sincerity of the New England
mill owners. In short, by closing the
mills the two contending parties seek
to ascertain which lies. This is a
costly method of arriving at the truth
of statistics and it would look as
though a little common sense would
settle the dispute at a less cost to the

Savage at First Contact K-eard tb Fabrla
When savage people first come in con
