WllKitK was Bryan when wheat went to $1.75 enquires an impious exchange, lie was probably gathering gate re ceipts in monoy which McKinley has helped to keep on a parity with go!d. It is now very evident that another call for troops will bo made and the companies that are organize! aro well drilled and ' ready to go will bo tho ones that will get in on tho next call. The Bplendid work of the Ameri can sailors at Manila will bo a favorite theme for the naval historian. Asono fleet was wholly dist.ro.ved tho start ling featurs must have been innumer able. ONE result of Dewey's victory is that our commerce on tho Pac'Oo is safe from Spanish attack. The Span ish fleet, if it had escaped, would have been a constant ineanco to our oriental trade. As WE go to press Windy V. Allen, the Nebraska senator, was still in Washington and Gov. Ilolcomb had not accepted his resignation. Soldiers who want gallery applause seldom go to war. A Mr. Salisbury, who gives his postomce address as London England, it is reported, suggested to ono Polo Bemabe that the Canadian climate was unhealthy for him and tho ex Spanish minister is going to Madrid without delay. YOUNG Loiter only needs to do bus iness a few years moro anil tie will be a billionaire. If Nebraska farmers were able to hold wheat for a raise along with their neighbors they could wear diamond?, too. Leiter is the luckiest man who ever dealt on the board of trade. War, pestilence and famine have come to his rescue and turned a few million of yellow dollars into his bursting coffers. If Spain continues her idiotic war and causes this country loss of life and expenditure of largo sums of money, the fight should be pushed until the parliament buildings at Madrid are laid in a&hes. They see that they can not possibly retain Cuba, and the idea of continuing the war is only an evi dence of the barbarous brutality of the Spanish people whose punishment should not end until the Spanish na tion is only a blot on the ?pages of history. On sweet to the taste is the promise of the democratic politician his words float out on the air like the symphonies of a celestial choir, but when the de luded pop or silver republican pre sents the promise to pay at the demo cratic counter, it is promptiy marked. "no funds" and handed back. If the holder ventures a protest he is promptly kicked out into the alley with the admonition to get into line and work for the democratic or fusion ticket steen years more. J. H. EDMISTEN, the state oil in spector with gubernatorial aspirations, seems to be "fixing" some of the boys in the ranks who formerly had the knife out for him. Some of the faith ful old pops who have been after Ed mis ten's scalp ever since he bobbed his head up are now very busily engaged in telling what a good man ho is, what a noble patriot and true reformer. Harley, old boy is pretty foxy and will give some of the would bo gov ernors the heart ache before the con vention ends. But he would be a fine specimen to decorate tho governor's hair. ONE of the syndicate editors of the Journal having absorbed some inform ation from the sugar trust sheets which have been opposing the annexation of the Hawaiian group of Islands, thinks the News is inconsistent In advocating annexing a coaling sta tion with a few inhabitants and oppos ing tho annexation of the Philippine Islands, with a population of 9,000,000 and located over 6,000 miles from our nearest port. Hawaii is clamoring to become a part of tho United States its leading people being Americans. The Philippines have been part or tho Spanish government for over 300 years are as unAmerican in principle as a people could possibly bo. Tho man who could see no difference in the sit- uation has too many wnecis in nis head to be able to comprehend much of anything, and a discussion of tho problem with such an individual would only result in a waste of time. PUSH IT ALONG. Tho determination on tho part of tho pro-blent nrid cabinet to push tho war to as m' cly n termination as possible ia In every way commendable and an action tho people have been praying for for months. Thorocan bp no occasion foi delay. When tho mat ter was hanging fire, no to spcik, and the pc pto were impatiently clamor- J ing for speedy action on the part of the government, wo worn lold to wait till wo got ready to shoot and then our government would go to businct-s. Ko cont developments have proven that everything is in readiness to do quick work and end the war in short order. To land our t-oldiurs in Cuba now be fore the hottest weather, tho rainy seahon or the yellow jack season comes let-sens tho danger to our troops to a great extent. In tho interest of peace and for tho benefit of commerce the world will applaud our government for their determination to end tho slrl'e as quickly as possible. Now let them put their determination into action as quickly as possible at d all people, save tho Spaniards, will ro joico. What about the Philippine islands? Well, the News says, drop them as soon as- this bloody war is over. The inhabitants are not fit for self govern ment. We have no moral right to hold them that money may be squeezed from the unfortunates c aiming those islands as a home. It will bo a sorry day when this nation, forgetting the fundamental principles underlying Its existence and urged on by the lust of conquest, shall turn this war from one in the interests of humanity into one of conquest. The voice of America will bo all powerful in the future, but tenfold so must it be when the lessons of this war will teach the world that tho United Slates mean what they say when the voice of the nation finds expression in tho solemn declaration of its congress and president. The populists and silver republi cans of Cass county, one by one, find the promises of thoir democratic musters dead sea fruit. INFORMATION ANI OPINIONS. The Manilla rope boutonniere is the proper thing just now in memory of Dewey's victory.. Seoor Polo Bemabe declined to par ticipate in any social functions at Mon treal on account of the loss of friends at Manilla. He sails for Madrid on Saturday of this week. Walter Wellman is showing a vast deal of tenacity of purpose in carrying out his plans for an arctic expedition just at a time when everybody wants to hear of tho war and many influen tial journals would be pleased to se cure his services to report it. He can hardly be recused of undertaking the work for advertising purposes, when he slips off so unostentatiously at this time of universal war preocupation Mr. Wellman is an accomplished jour nalist and an experienced arctic trav eller. Something ought to como from his sacrifice in going to the north jut now. when most men of his nerve and talents are moving toward the south -Ex. There is no question but what Dewey will be rolicved at a very early date, as t he Charleston will sail at once with arms and ammunition, and the City of Pekin and other transports will leave San Francisco by Sunday, with several thousand troops, supplied with a mil lion rations. Kev West is suffering from a water famine. The people have to rely on cisterns for pure water, and the sold iers and warships have about exhaust ed the supply. The government is putting in a condenser that will furn ish 20,000 galons of pure water per day Spain was once an aggressive nation. She gloried in the warlike spirit of her men, and her black flag of piracy was the terror of the high seas She waxed fat upon plunder, and her pride was greater than tho limitations of her unhallowed conquests. The former is about all she has left. Her ignor ance is deplorable and her arrogance unjustified by any public act since she discovered America. Rent by internal dissensions and ripped up the back abroad she has but one thing to look forward to as tho- fitting finale of a career of infamy, and that is oblivion State Journal. Major General Merritt, command ing tho department of the east is said to have been selected lohead the Phil lipine expedition and to act as gov ernor general of the islands. It is re ported from London that 40,000 Span ish soldiers aro being made ready to go to the Phillipines with war ships, so that trouble in the Asiatic region may bo looked for. Our fleet on the Pacific coast consists of tho protected cruiser Charleston; the monitors Monadnock and Monte rey; tho gunboats Bennington, Alba tross, Grant, Corwin, Rush, and Perry, of the second class; tho Alert, an iron cruiser, the Iroquois, Vigilant and Active, purchased 6teamers. This is tho only force which could roach Ma nila ahead of the Spaniards if it be true that their fleet is on its way to the Philippines. Tho Kansas republicans have nom inated a man for congress bv the name of Boworsock. An exchange thinks this is done to offset the advertise ment of SocKless Simpson, the pop congressman. Weyler has offored tho Spanish cortcs to lend a victorious army of 50,000 men across this country if ordered to do so. The polico force in oantern cities might have something to do if Weyler ever landed, but ho values his hide at too high a figure to think seriously of tho proposition. Litiio Dewey care what becomes of tho Armnda after Sampson gets in sight of it Tho St. Louis Globo Democrat calls Dewey a Manila rapper. General MUcb will bo tho Ilavanna filler later on. Coramodoro Dewey's victory seems to have put new life into tho govern ment at Washington, and orders are flying thick and fast to push matters all along tho line. Wednesday afternoon Wilham Rose, of Fairmont, an old hunter, bethought him that he would go out and get afow ducks. Re borrowed a horse and buggy and got about four miles. He went to take the gun out and it was accidentally discharged. The charge lodged in the horse's rump. He put the next charge in the horse'd head and walked home. It is said the owner of tho horso wishes to spoak with him. Ex. Tho error in the translated cipher dispatch from Dewey in tho figures stating the number of Spanish killed in the battle arose from the omission of the word, "alone" by the translator. Tho dispatch was that lo0 were killed together with the captain on the Reina Christiana alone." It was the mor tility of one Spanish warship that was given and not that of the entire fleet. It seems likely that the slaugh ter was dreadful amounting as is claimed now to something like two thousand, which was a number equal to the entire force on the American fleet. It was certainly the most re markable battle in history, consider ing tho small number engaged in it. Exchange. Miss Helen Gould, who recently do nated $100,000 of her father's accumu lations to the government, to aid in carrying on the present war, possibly got the inspiration from the Platts mouth man who had previously do nated $200. Did you notice Platts mouth is always at tho head of the procession. The report that the Spanish had taken the American ship Montgomery with a kodak lacks confirmation. Since they are too cowardly to get near enough to reach our ships with a long range gun it is safe to nay they could accomplish nothing with the kodak. Tho ladies are always enterprising and have an eye -single to the glory of their home town. In their move to beautify the B. & M. park and clean up the city to make it presentable to Trans-Mississippi visitors this summe they have 6et an example for the men of the town which is highly commend able on their part but it ought to make the men blush a little with shame to think they have been so negligent of such an important work. We take our hat off to the Woman's club and would urge them to proceed with their good work until the most satisfactory results are achieved. Oive the Children u Drink callel Grain-O.

There has been considerable discus sion as to what tirno and what day Dewoy fought his marine battery at Manila, whether it recurred Sunday or Saturday morning. A well known gentleman, who is well posted In such matters, s'tys: "While in theory a man might figure either way around the earth ns to time, still it is neces sary in actual practice to have a fixed starting point in oidcr that all may figuro on the same basis and all maps, charts, etc., may have their longitude and latitude numbered to correspond with each other. "These two points have been arbi trarily selected and aro the equator tor latitude and the meridian of Green wich for longitude. Most time calcu lations, thereforo, begin at Greenwich, and the almanacs which determine the astronomical calendar days use this as a starting point. If tho battle of Manila was "fought at 5 o'clock a. m. Sunday morning tho corresponding mean time at Plattsmouth was three hours, live minutes thirty seconds Saturday afternoon, becauso the sun did not pass over Chicago until thir teen hours, fifty-nine minutes and thirty seconds after it passed Manila."
