Tho financial philosophers who have

It looks like Govornor Holcomb

This is enough to make him wince

When Spain, in resoonso to Mc

THE war talk is not affecting business

Press, who saw fit to make unkind re

he fully deserved all tho abuse that
was heaped upon him.
Col. Woodford is a great orator
and was one of the bravest soldiers

DOW N ON THE POPULISTS.
Populis t.-i mufct got oil- tho earth,
that is tho slogan of the demoemtie
organ in this city as will bo noticed
from tho following editorial which
appeared in last evi nirig's Journal :
"Tho fusion of politic.il purlieu is all
right in principle, the name as a co
partriernhi j i ti u business venture is.
But it would bo preposterous to pi o
pose tho fusion or co-partnership of u
lamb and a hyena or of a dove and a
Horpent. Arid it's just the same witli
political fusion in some quarters. It
is no more than just to s.ty that tho
rank and file of all parlies are disposed
to bo square and fair, yet in many
localities they allow themselves to be
dictated to am manipulated by one or
two cheap grafters and p.u-iy iraituis,
wlio have no uioro idea of p-inc!p:o
than a Digger iridian has of I. e
Darwinian theory of evolution. 'I h.y
are po.itic il ha lots who chum to he
members of the party which they seek
to control, merely bee.iu-e they can
make more by such pretended alleg
iance than would bo possible by any
other course. Their ways wo devious
and dark. Party secrets at e obtained,
that they may bo peddled for a profit.
Fusion schemes aro cancoeted in order
that some ono may buy them olT, and
objectionable and unpopular candi
dates aro forced upon union tickets s
that such liekcts may be weakened in
the interest of tho opposition."
CHAPMAN REVERSED AGAIN.
This is thu same old story, witli a
new chapter. Tho supremo court, in
passing upon one of tho many cases
decided by Chapman, which, in the
interest of justice, wore taken before
that tribunal, says:
Miller vs. Meeker. Error from Cass
county. Reversed. Opinion by Jus
1. When an action is properly
brought before a justice of the peace
of one county, summons may if-suo to
any other county to bring iti other
2. In a personal action, service of
summons in a county whore a suit is
brought upon a nominal defendant
merely, who has no substantial inter
est in the subject of tho suit adverse
to tho plaintiff, does not confer author
ity upon the court to issue a summons
to another county for a real defend
ant. 3. The jurisdiction of u justice's
court is inferior and limited, and to
support a judgment of that court, the
record must affirmatively show juris
diction ever tho person of tho defend
ant. A SAMPLE OF PROSPERITY.
Reports from 15 of the leading com
mercial states on the number of busi
ness failures for the first quarter of
'97 compared with the fit st quarter of
'1)8 shows what McKinley times and
the restoration of conscience me 'tis.

Victor Kosewatku of Omaha was
before the supreme court yesterday
and asked for, and was granted, per
mission to tile a petition for a writ ior
mandamus compelling the governor to
hear personally the charges against
the three Omaha lire and police com
missioners. Mr. Ilosewater denies the
right of tho governor to delegate the
hearing to Judjje Tibbetts or any other
man. Governor llolcomb will be re
quired to show cause why ho shou.i!
not sit in the case.
The southern editor who "longs fo;
one hour of Wil'.iam J. Bryan " need
not go through life in disappointment.
He can have one hour of Mr. Bryan
at almost any time if he will charge
an admission and divide the gate re
ceipts. The Nebraska statesman is
not exclusive, if he is rich. State
Skxatou Allen, who is as large a
man as M. V.Gibson of South Park,
declares ho wants to resign and jine
the army if we have war with Spain,
tsince rendiDg his statement we are
unalterably for war.
The discovery of a copy of the

INFORMATION ANIJ OPINIONS.
Commissioner Evans has been called
upon for an opinion as to whether a
pensioner could enlist in case of war
with Spain. The commissioner in
formed his inquirers that they were
pensioned for disability, and the gov
ernment always sought for 'Sable
bodied men" (naturaly) for soldiers.
The pensioa stood in the way of old
soldiers enlisting, for it was a certifi
cate of disability which no medical ex
amination could set aside.
The Nebraska train on its arrival in
