The Nebraska City News says edi
torially: "With an abundance of la

With an abundance of peopie wanting
money the banks hold millions of idle
capital. With a powerful nation, ca
pable of creating its own money, it
goes to ruin ror want of it." Wnat a
patriot (?) to pick flaws and preach
dissatisfaction without offering &
remedy. If there are so many people
wanting money, and there is an abund
ance of labor tj be performed, it is
very evident that those wdo want
the money prefer te steal it rather
than work for it, or tramp around and
exist without work. A powerful Na
tion has never yet been of sufficient
power to create values, or make some
thing out of nothing. If the power
to make money in any quantity exist

any paupers to exist. They should all

are to be the agents of the creator of
all wealth. Our neighbor is either

THE RICHEST NATION
Mr. Michael G. Mulball, the noted
English statistician, is clearly of the
opinion that no other nation compares
with ouas in all the essential elements
that go to make up aggregate wealth.
He also notes the fact that while the
most European countries ha ve attained
their growth, the United States is ap
parently on the threshold of an indus
trial development which it has never
dreamed of before.

These computations arobisod upon
values as shown by real estate records,
buildings, merchandise and railways
as well as the circulating medium in

It was Admiral Cerwra who made
a grandiloquent speech to his seamen
before starting for western waters to
annihilate the American 11 iet and lay
waste the coast of New England. The
poor old man must feel bitterly humil
iated now. He has no mote orations
to make. He appears to be a superior
sort of Spaniard. He is not entirely
selfish, but devotes some thought to
his men. Ex.
Just a little while ago the Spanish
ship Vizcaya visited these shores. It
was at the time of the excitement over
the Maine disaster. Captain Eulate
spent several days at New York, and
then went away and told the Spaniards
that there was no discipline on board
American war vessels, and that we
didn't know anything about naviga
tion or the management of guns. Now
the captain's ship lies on a junk heap
and tho captain himself is a prisoner.
He might be persuaded, while on board
an American vessel, to give us a few
pointers on the management of guns.
The Krag-Jorgensen seems to have

Several camera fiends seized the op

the bad humor of the waders was
greatly augmented by the knowledge
