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 declare war if she likes and if we are 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 son'to rejoice when they consider their escape' from the calamity of sending a man like McKisson to the senate.

Whai, hypocrisy and dishonesty all around Ex. 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.

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 Boon. 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 John M.Thurston. THE POLITICAL CAULDRON. Mayor Gutsche fceomn to hold the demociatic organization in the hollow of Ins hand and thero is ro doubt of his renomination. For city trensurer, II. II. Gering will undoubtedly bo nominuted for a second term. The office of city clerk is worth more than it used to bo and there is more candi dates for the position. In democratic circles, Fr d LehnhoiT, jr., appears to have the inside track und his nomi riMtion is conceded by the parly lead ers. Fred h is been water ca rir long enough and proposes to se' if there is any such thing as gratitude in politics Republicans are at sea so far as a mayoralty candidate is concerned, considerable talk being heard in favor of II. N. Dovey and It. 15. Windham. Dr. Cook is conceded the nomination for treasurer if he wants it. The clerkship will bo a home of contention, 15. C. Kerr, the present lerk, has a iargH following, and tho name of T. II. 1'ollock, Ed. Lutz and several other young republicans are men tioned. AN ISSUE OF FACT. 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 a e enabled to put their product on 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 south. 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 litigants. The N w York Journal is certain li y n win drive from democratic r ni.vS ah men who are capable if en tertaining mor e than one idea at a time. Shaw, he did that long ago,and ihe weeding out of men who hold ideas at all, is now in progress. Ax Ohio man became 6o excited over politics that he shot himself in the mouth. This sort of wound will be sur e to take him out of politics. lNKOlOlATION AND OPINIONS. Judge Joyce last evening united in marriage Jesse Draper and Miss Bethel Samuel, both of Cass county.

The news brought by the treasure laden miners who have arrived from the Klondike on tho steamer Corona is important chiefly in that it is confirmatory of the great mother lode.

Savage at First Contact K-eard tb Fabrla With Suspicion. When savage people first come in con tact with the whites, none of tho won ders that they see is regarded with more suspicion than large sheets of paper. The native is apt to regard paper as a sort of cloth, and the fact that it teara easily and is worthless for most of the purposes to which cloth is put convinces him that it is a fraud. t- t-IA r,f ! tho disgust with which the natives at , first regarded paper.

Ono day a crowd of natives was in the white man's camp carefully inspect- ing the explorer and his baggage when a newspaper happened to drop out of his pocket. The natives unfolded and spread it out on the ground. They decided that it must be an article of wearing apparel, and one of them tried it on. He wrap- ped it round his shoulders like a shawl and sat down on the ground, arranging his covering this way and that and watching the faces of the crowd to see what they thought of his elegant gar- ment, covered as it was with many thousands of curious marks. Presentlv. however, an accident hap- pened. While the savage was rearrang- ing his shawl and trying to bring tne i ..!.: v,;, v,0 r,,,. ment began to tear at the nape of his neck. A howl from the crowd canea at- tention to the disaster. The blanket, or whatever it was, was evidently made of the poorest sort of material. The savage took his covering off, ex- amined the mischief he had wrought, made the tear a little longer and men with his f nger poked a hole through tUn mwr ine paper. That settled the fact that the article wa wnrH,lpsa. The newsnaner sudden- ly lost all interest for the natives, who turned their attention to less destructi- tie objects. Pearson's Weekly.
