THE manner fn which THE NEWS'
subscribtion list is growing is very
gr; lifying to the publishers, showing
us it does, that the people appreciate
their homo papor.
One of North Dakota's most impor
tant industries that of the divorce
mill has received a black eye at the
hands of the legislature, the residence
provision of the law having been
amended to twelve months instead of
Goveknok Poynteh has evidently
been carrying a little note book and is
now commencing the delightful task
of executing some of Governor
Ilolcomb's appointees. It may be fun
now for Mr. Poynter and fun for the
fellows who grt the jobs, but look out
for the man whoso scalp is taken
he will be heard from later on.
Colonel Bkyn made a serious
mistake when he resigned his position
with the Third Nebraska, as he could
hardly have found a constituency tfhat
would approve his present utterances
any more than the Cuban insurgents.
If the colonel had gone to Cuba and
made the campaign he is now making
against the United States, he would
have been the most popular man the
war has produced in the eyes of the
Cubans and that ought lo have been
glory enough for one war.
The anti expansionists are all at
sea for the reason that they do not
know what they are fighting. The
administration has out-lined no defi
nite policy with reference to the care
or control of the new territory, so
that Mr. Bryan and his class do not
know whether they are fighting repub
licans or democrats, or merely mak
ing a war on "wind mills." Of course
it makes little difference to Mr. Bryan
as he is like the proverbial Irishman,
who is "ferninst" the government, no
matter what the proposition, so long
as hi is not permitted to stand at the
EACn successive turn in the affairs
of the Spanish difficulty confirms the
wisdom of President McKinley when
he sent his message to conerress that
led to a declaration of war. With the
inr-iirbt of a true statesman. President
McKinley saw that the Cuban in
surejits were s unstable as the Spa.i
iards who we e trying to control them.
and im-tijad of favoring the recogni
tion of Cub n independence, his state
ment i hat a sti.b e gore r m nt should
be established in Cuba, meant mu h
more th-tn hi-t closest r iends then
Understood. Ij iter developments show
that a stable governmtnt does Dot
mean a Cuban government, and until
tho Cubar s have learned that they are
to live by honest 1 tbor instead of
pillaging ihcir supposed enemies,
Uncle Sam will have to kt t p a strong
nand on Cuban affairs.
The governor of Indiana declaims
against lynching, but his fevered in
terest in the question will not hare
much effect in changing local condi
tions. The law is now bitterly op
posed to all lynching and could not be
made stronger, but what ihe people of
this country need is enforcement of
law against criminals, and the public
sentiment that will back that enforce-
ment, and there will be no occasion to
ignore it and attempt to mete out pun
ishment under the direction of Judge
Lvnch. It is true Indians has been
disgraced by several lynchings re
centlv. but an education that will
teach respect for her laws and the se
lection of men to enforce them, will
do more to prevent lynching than all
the proclamations that chief execu
tives have ever issued.
Colonel Bkyax has a certiiu faci
lityand felicity of expression which, to
people of literary tastes, is exceedingly
attractive. As an example of making
the best out of a bad cause, his reply
to President McKinley's question,
'Who shall haul down our flag," may
be cited. But unfortunately for him,
he has the proverbial and traditional
facility of his party for blundering. In
an address at a banquet in Cincinnati,
given in his honor last evening, he
took up and emphasized his adherence
to the defunct sixteen to one issue, and
devoted the remainder of his time to
exposing his crude and grotesque
ideas about military affairs, and to
antagonizing the manifest drift of the
national mind, and the obvious de
stiny of the Amerisan people in the
direction of a wide- and more influen
tial national policy. On these issues

Thfie is no good reason why the
public treasury in tho 8tat of N -br.-ifka
Fhould bo depleted each year
$2.0)U for tho pur pi 'ho of running a
stato fair, says J. Slotting Mi rtoi.'s
Conserva' i vo.
If the farmers and manufacturers of
Nebraeka deem it advantageous to
have a state fair each year they have
a right to hold one at their own ex
pense. But there is no excuse for a
law which puts the hand of the state
Board of Agriculture into the popular
pocket for the purpose of tking out,
each year, enough tax-levied, tax-
gathered cash to pay tho ex penses of
the board and its officer for running
a state fair.
More than twenty j-ears ago the ed
itor of tne ConservUive served as
lVsido'.t of the Stato Board of Agri
culture. While c ng in thai capacity
he de -lined to i th - -tato appro
priation for lh- li id of Agriculture.
To Hon. Euyeno Mun , ttien a m m
bor of the legi-1 itur,. from otoe
county, he nd Irossi-d a lotto prot-si-ing
against th app opr-iation. It was
not made. Tho st.te f iir was a -uo-cess
financially a id in every de-iranle
way. Bat never s nco that time has
the Stato Board of Agr.cu lur f tiled
t seek and secure an 1 consume fls
annual stipend of $2,000 from the state.
In the last twenty years that stipend
makes an aggregation of more than
$60,000. No tuch appropriation is
needed. No such appropriation should
be made. If tero is not demand for a
sta'e fair in sufficient force to pay the
expenses oi a state fai. Nebraska
ought not to indu'ge in a state fair.
Things undemanded are valueless.
There is among the statutes of Ne
DrasKa one wnicn provides lor an
annual allowance of $o00 by the com
missioners in each county for tho pur
nose of holding a county fair. Tho
ninety-eight organized counties of tne
commonwealth availing themselves of
this lax, unwiso and extravagant leg
islation may squander in horso trots
about $o0,000 annually. In the last
twenty years these expenditures which
are wholly unnecessary have added
about $1,000,000 to the taxntion of Ne
The legislature of NebraKa should
abolish all subsidies to the State
Board of Agriculture and to county
agricultural societies. If these laws
are not repealed it is a duty of tax
payers to sue out injunctions and per
manently, under order of tho courts
put an end to this waste of public
the cost of expansion.
Among the spurious arguments ad
vanced against a colonial system by
the L oiled States is its expense; and
men of slender information or narrow
views will figure out tbe cost of a
large army, the expense of a great
navy, the increased taxation resulting
and then sit baeU and solemnly tell us
that this is the highway lo ruin. Sup
pose Great Britain hnd figured that
waj' during the past century? Or to
come closer home, and bring ourselves
possibly within the comprehension of
these prophets of evil, suppose that
Armour & Co. or Swift & Co. of Chi
cago should figure out the expense of
a Nebraska branch of their business
without taking account of piospec
tive profit? How soon would
others take the place ieft vacant by
their short sightedness or timidity and
the success of these great bouses be
arretted. The truth is, Great Britan's
policy of expansion has not only paid
its way but t nrich d the mothei toon
trv beyond pr cedent. If the United
&'at-s enters on this career, it wt 1 be

AS BEtiARDS SELF GOVERNMENT.
The right of self government de
pends upon the ability of self govern
ment Even Jefferson did not favor
its extension to our Indian tribes, and
the latest advices from the Filipinos
raise the same question as to them. In
reply to a question as to the ability of
the insurgents there for governing
themselves, Major General Merritt
replied "that it would take time, that
they would have to be educated up to
it. " General Greene said, "no native
government can maintain itself with
out the active support of a strong for
eign government. It is difficult to see
how a foreign government can give
this protection without taking such
active part in the management of af
fairs as is practically equivalent to its
own name." .now could we expect
anything else of a race or races com
posing the population of these islands?
Barely semi-civilized, as most of them
must be, ignorant, wrong headed, fit
tools for any ambitious demagogues,
these natives, and probably those of
Cuba and Porto Rico, for their own
welfare and for many years to ccme.

We trust and believe that the re

honest efforts in the direction of
penuine economy. We want none of
that sort of economy that imposes upon
the inmates of asylums and soldiers'

in which good republican reform may
be useful. A great responsibility
rests upon this legislature. Republi
can representatives should appreciate
that responsibility, and act wisely and

NIGHT AND DAY.
The Packers at the Battle of Santiago de
Cuba Were All Heroes Their Heroic
Efforts In Getting Ammunition and
Rations To the Front Saved the Day
P. E. Butier, of pack-t,ain No. 3
writing from Santiago de Cuba, on
July 23, says: "We all had diarrhoea
in more less violent form; and when
we landed we had no time to see
doctor, for it was a case or rush and
rush night and day to keep the troops
supplied with amunition and rations,
but thanks to Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, we
were able to keep at work and keep
our health; in fact, I sincerly believe
that at one critical time this medicine
was tbe indirect savior of our array,
for if the packers had been unable to
work there would have been no way
of getting supplies to the front. There
were no roads that a wagon train
could use. My comrade and myself
had the good fortune to lay in a sup
ply of tnis medicine for our pack-train
before we left Tampa, and I know in
four cases it absolutely saved life."
