The silliest rot we have heard from
Lincoln for many moons was contained
in a dispatch in thi3 morning's World
Herald, which said Governor liol
comb, who is one of tho most abject
corporation tools which ever held the
office of governor, is going to call a
special session of the legislature to
pass a new maximum rate bill since
the old one, which has always been
ignored, has been set aside bv the
federal supreme couit. The people o
Nebraska are not simpering idiots
even though their votes at the las
state election might indicate an in
clination toward paresis. In the flrs
place a maximum rate bill is not spec
ially needed we have lived and pros
pered without any such measure hav
ing been enforced, and it is not likely
that the governor would call a specia
session of the legislature to pass a bill
for which no demand is made. The
idea of Ilolcomb, the corporation
best friend, trying to embarrass his
masters is too ridiculous for even pop
consumption, and the World-Herald
ought not presume too much on the
ignorance and imbecility of its
yvak witn &pain certainly seems
imminent. The president has asked
for an appronnation of $50,000,000 for
war purposes and congress, it is said,
will grant it without debate or even a
dissenting vote. A prominent demo
cratic member from the sooth com
mended McKinley's firm policy and
insisted that party lines were obliter
ated for the present, as no man should
forget his Americanism. The strong
arm of the government, renianted an
other political opponent, must be up
held even at the cost of life and treas
ure there is no other honorable
course to follow. The entire country
seems to breathe a martial spirit, and
is getting on a war footing. Every
powder and munition factory has been
running night and day on government
account. Even the packing houses
are putting up a class of canned meais,
we are told, suitable for government
use. bpanish scoundrels blew up the
Maine without a doubt, and that
country can not pay an indemnity, be
side matters in Cuba wi:l soon compel
intervention on tne pari oi mis
country. To a conservative observer
war certainly seems near at hand; the
drift of affairs is in that direction and
nothing short of an improbable back
down on the p rt of Spain will avert
the calamity which will cost the lives
of many of our best people.
