The enormous sums of gold that
are coining to us on both sides of the
continent more than 9 1,000,000 a day
since February 25 are a source of
national strength far too littlo appre
ciated. They add largely to tho ability of
tho poople to support the government
in case of need.
Tbey greatly increase the volume of
money in; the country, every dollar
meaning, as a bank reserve, from $4
to $0 of availablo money with which
to meet the needs of commerce.
They mean that the country as a
whole is buying far less than it is
soiling; that it is living far within its
moans a circumstance that is as sug
gestive of thrift and prosperity in the
case of a nation as it is in the case of
an individual.
They mean that our national credit
and the credit of all our enterprises
aro unimpeached in foreign markets.
Otherwise American securities na
tional, state, municipal railroad and
industrial would now be flowing in
upon us from timid foreign holders
and we should be exporting gold to
pay for them.
At a season when we usually export
gold, and with a "war 6care" on, we
are still importing gold in phenomenal
quantities. The fact is reassuring in
an extraordinary degree. New York

SPAIN has not solved the question of
naval coal piles on this side of the At
lantic. It is believed by good judges
that a Spanish fleet in American wat
ers could soon be reduced to helpless
ness by cutting off its fuel supply.
The Spanish bluster about how dear
they hold tho honor and integrity of
their country, and how they will sac
rifice everything for it, sounds very
much like the talk which Greece put
up when the Turk9 got after them
and at the first smell of real battle the
Greeks ran like frightened hares. If
Spain can fight she must show us.
The Central City Democrat, which
has been scientifically named, sets ite

The democrats in their city con
vention here last week, spiked fusion
very effectually, so far as this county
is concerned. Populists who would
consort with them after such a square
slap in the face as was given, would
be very cheap sort of men. From those
we have heard talk, fusion is
squelched for this year in old Cass.

squelching a ten million dollar rail

Leading Clothier of Cass County
Mb. Bryan is evidently not in it
for his health. He made a speech at
Lawrence, Kas., Wednesday night on
the silver bug a boo which netted him
$175. His crocidile tears for the suf
fering and down trodden laboring
people are thus wiped away and his
head aches for the suffering masses
assuaged by the healing balm of
money not earned. Oh, demogoguery.
thy name is surely Bryan.
The Nebraska National guard is in
a state of cold perspiration, having
found from the oath taken that the
president can order every company to
the front with little ceremony, and
make yellow fever food of the Ne
braska heroes of Pine Ridge. The
dodging of Spanish bullets is not half
so bad as the trial to keep out of reach
of Cuban microbes. The latter enemy
strikes terror to the Nebraska soldiers
heart as he is only familiar with clear
sunshine and pure air.
The populists have been slapped in
the face so many times by the remnant
of Jeffersonianism in Nebraska it
would seem that they would some time
come to their senses and give the dem
mies the rebuke they deserve. The
latest insult is the withdrawal,
through democratic influence of sev
eral candidates from the populist city
ticket. Let the populists vote repub
lican ticket and they will be voting
for their friends. At least, not for
men who are seeking to use them as
cat's paws.
A SPECIAL to the State Journal in

Plattsmouth, Nebraska.
Plattsmouth can well afford to
donate liberally to the cause of the
suffering Cubans. Everybody can af
ford to give something be it ever so
little. None of us would suffer from
the loss, if necessary of one or two
meals, that some starved creature of
the little isle might enjoy one whole

Since John P. Sutton, of Lincoln,
has heard of a possible alliance offen
sive and defensive with Great Brit-
tain he shows a disposition to consider
it purely offensive, especially to him
self. This is all wrong, John 6hould
remain neutral in a case of this kind
and not harrow up the feelings which
have been slumbering since 1812.
England has a navy that is a pretty
good thing to have around in case of
a dispute with a foreign power, its
monster battleships forming the most
convincing argument in favor of a
proposition that a government ever
had tho pleasure of considering.
War with Spain ia now almost a
certainty. The report of the commit
tee appointed to investigate the
Maine explosion has been received at
Washington and it is given out that
the report alleges the cause was a
dynamite mine or torpedo located on
the outside of the vessel. American
residents of Havanna have been noti
fied by this government to leave and
a vessel has been sent to bring them
away. The note from the govern
ment to Spain with reference to the
disposal of the torpedo fleet coming
this way has been entirely ignored.

fore the sun rises on this day of next
week there can be no question but
what the conflict will be on in all its

However much war may be deplored,
there is but one opinion, from the
lakes to the gulf and that is in favor
of punishing the barbarous Spaniards.
McKinley has, with rare wisdom,
staved off the day of conflict which he

and the country is on a pretty fair
war footing. The work that has been
accomplished in the last month on the

Secretary Gage says the financial

the money which it woud need to carry
on the war. The capital of the out

William Morrow, of Murray, has been
in town taking charge of the Vienna
bakery which her father traded for, a
few days ago. Last evening she re
ceived a telegram announcing the
death of her twelve-year-old brother,
William Tay, whom she did not know
was dangerously ill. She departed on
the late M. P. train last night for
Murray to attend the funeral which
occurs tomorrow at 10:30 o'clock from
the Christian church in Murray. The
little fellow has suffered for some
time from heart trouble and has not
been strong, but the immediate cause
of his taking off was malignant sore
