Attorney Genkkal Smyth in his
motion for a now trial in tho B irt'ey
case makes a strong: showing' in favor
of tho theory that the jury has been
tampered with, and every taxpayer
not having a financial interest in tho
defense, will hopo to boo Judge I'owell
grant a new trial.
THE gold reserve in tho national
troasury is now over $200,000,000 and
no bonds have been Bold, either. How

Their silver prophesoios aro of the
same cloth as those which said Mc
Kinley would have to issue bonds to
keep gold, in tho treasury.
Theke hasn't been a revolution in
Central America for ten days, but wre

which win involve costa inca, non-

habit of boiling over and lighting like
pirates over trival matters.
Judge Newell's name is mentioned
of lato by his friends for tho mayor
alty, and with his former experience
in the ex cutivo chair he would make
a most acceptable ollicor. F. II.
Steimker, a man of storling integrity
and sound judgmont,is also mentioned
for the same position. Either of these
gentlemen could be elected.
John O. Yeiseb, who is better
known as "HelloYeiser" since he got
tangled up with tho telephone com
pany, imagines he is candidate for gov
ernor of the pop cohorts. John's high
opinion of Yeisercuufortunately is not
shared by tho general public and his
boom will never get farther along than
the kindergarten stage.
THE New York Journal has become
so unreliable a newspaper that it
seems strange anyone should care to
read the worthless sheet. The World-
Herald of Omaha, which reprints its
bogus Havanna dispatches that are
written in New York, is so utterly
unreliable that people who care to
know the real conditions of affairs,
must look to the State Journal or
Bee for information.
Your Uncle Sam has as good credit
as any nation on the globe since he re
fused to scale his debts and try to pay
in a depreciated dollar. lie has a
few hundred million now ready to
use without issuing any bonds, and
for tho first time in four years, the
monthly balance sheet at the treasury
shows an income a few millions larger
than our expenses. We are all right
when republicans are on deck with a
tariff and honest money policy to en
force. If Spain needs a little disci
pline, Uncle Sam is tho fellow to ad
minister it, and we shall only be glad
of a good excuse for taking decisive
action against the cruel Spaniards.
Tiie government continues'to talk
peace while night is turned into day
at every ordnance factory, in an effort
to put all of the twenty-four hours in.
in the manufacture of powder and mu
nitions of war. Tha investigations of
the causes of the Maine disaster move
slowly along while the Spaniards fume
about what they will and won't do.
War has not been declared except by
the Yellow Kid Journal of New York,
and it may not occur. If it does come,
however, the United States will be
found in perfect readiness to face any
emergency. The policy of the presi
dent has been safe and conservative
and deserves tho unanimous support
of the whole people.
The Nebraskan who went to Massa
chusetts and begun the manufacture
of shredded wheat for the esthetic
Bostonians, has made a fortune out of
the venture, and now in memory of
tho state which gave him a start in
the world, he is turning his attention
to a new product called shredded
corn, which is said to be very fine.
We certainly shall not envy him his
wealth if he thereby doubles the con
sumption of our chief staple as a table
food product. The heart of the grain
is extracted, and the balance is put
through a steaming process and
shredded. From the heart of "the
grain, a fine article of oil is extracted
and the residue is used for stock feed.
The Review of Reviews which, bar
ring the Cosmopolitan, was the only
standard magazine in this country
that apparently espoused the cause
of Bryan and IG to 1 in 1896, lays down
its arms and confesses that for all
practical purposes the gold standard
is as firmly fixed and as permanently
a part of the republic as the Missis
sippi river and the Rocky mountains,
and that the whole civilized world is
committed to it, and that further
kicking is useless. The sane portion

"The Burlington has gone out of

The strictures placed upon thoso
who aspire to political preferment in

of a man's position would bo expected

According to the dispatches from
r i a . . -
wasningion tnese gentlemen are
fearful of an Indian outbreak up that
way, and want protection. To a west
erner this looks liko a good joke, as
the Indians in the reservation u
there are nenrer civilized and are fa
more law-abiding than the averaer
Wyoming cow-boys who go to make
up a large part of tho population of
that part of Wyoming. Nebraska is
in as much danger from the Indian
up near Pender who are engaged in
cultivating the soil as tho Sherida
people are from their neighbors. A
fort may be a good thing to have
around, but the danger from India
outbreaks is too absurd to talk about
seriously in the west.
The report of the secretary of the
treasury shows that between Novem
ber 1, 18J3, and February 1, 1898, 37,
735,572 standard silver dollars were
coined by the United States. This
means that after the Sherman act was
repealed, in the very time the cheap
money people have been conducting
a big campaign for the restora
tion of silver to its old place,'
wo have coined more than fou
times as many dollars as the govern
ment did in its entire history up to
1S73. The government is using more
silver all the time than it did before
the "crime," but the miners are dig
ging it out of the hills so fast that the
price connot catch its breath. The 16
to 1 people are working at the wrong
end of the proposition in all of their
efforts to restore the party. Jf they
really want 16 to 1 restored they had
better go out to tho mountains and
stop up tho mines that have been mak
ing the trouble. State Journal.

NO LOVE NOK IE A It OK STAIN.
F. J. Coates in Monday evening's
News says ''it is easy to talk of war;
it will cost us a million of men and
untold wealth to conquer Spain." In
reply will say we know this and are
ready to take the responsibility. War
is dreaded by all, but when Spain re
fuses to pay tho damage done to our
navy by blowing up one of our best
vessels and sending 258 souls into
eternity, what else can we do but go
to punish these treacherous devils?
Or are wo dongo like to say to Spain,
"We forgive you, but please do not
hurt us hereafter;," No, a thousind
times nol Tho American people are
not built that way. Surely, it is not
our fault to be dragged into war with
Spain. This government has been
ever lenient toward Spain in order to
keep out of war. In fact, too lenient.
Had wo acknowledged the belliger
ency of the Cubans, the latter would
have driven the Spaniards out of Cuba
s me time ago, and Cuba would bo
free. Instead of hel ping the Cubans,
we spent thousands of dollars to keep
help away from this country. And at
the same lime fully knowing that the
Americans in the revolutionary war
gladly acceoted aid from the French.
L-ifayette, with his ship-loads of sol
diers, ammunition and provisions, was
gladly and thankfully received by
Washington and the American people
and we thank Lafayette today for the
assistance he gave the country. In his
memory they will build a monument
at Washington or New York.
We agree with Mr. Coates the
French generals, such as Nye, Mc
Donald, Lannes, Murat and others
were brave men. We had just such
generals in our late war, such as Gen
e al Lee, Sherman, Sheridan, Custer,
and a great many more, who, if alive,
would lead the Americans to victory
once more and would not be afraid to
fight the Spaniards. If war must come
we will have able leaders who will
offer their services, besides, Mr.
Coates, the Spanish nation today is
not what it was in Napoleon's
time, at that time, Spain was a power
ful nation and had plenty of money
and credit, today Spain has no money
or credit. Tn fact, she is unable to
pay her Cuban soldiers their misera
ble monthly wages.
The French went into Spanish terri
tory to conauer the country. It is
different with us, we don't want to
conquer Spain, consequently if they
want to fight us they will have to cume
here. All we want is a free Cuba for
the Cubans, and that we will have,
and next we want pay for the damages
done to the Maine and pay for the
poor widows and orphans left to mourn
the untimely death of their husbands
and fathers. This is all we want Mr.
Coates, and I use the words of Gen
eral Jackson; "By the eternal we will
have it." To close I will say to Mr
Coates, Dongoo will have to to take
a back seat, or, gopher-like, dig a
hole in the ground and pull the earth
after them, if war would break out.

George Schular, the bootlegger who
was tried in the county court of thi
county last week and found guilty and
who finally pleaded guilty to the
charge of selling liquor without a li
cense and was fined $250 and costs by
County Judge Howard and oent to the
Douglas county jail to work out his
fine, was released Saturday afternoon
by District Judge Keyeor, who claims
that Judge Howard had no legal right
to impose more than $100 fine and
even then could not sentence him to
jail. The temperance people of the
village are much excited over the
case, as they advanced $50 to the Om
aha detective for conviction. There

their own hands and appointing a
committee to wait on such men as

to vacate. Schular used to run a salo n
