will wipe out that provision of the

business is unprofitable and these so

that the allowance of the claim for our

As A result of Omaha impersonating

chances for the state fair to be relo

work of electing officers, etc., and the
board of managers was requested to

The real reason why the friendship
of Great Britain was so valuable to the
United States during our war with
Spain was because she possessed the
greatest navy in the world. While we
are grateful for Great Britain's friend
ship, and what it implies, is there no
undercurrent of humiliation felt by
our people to think that we stood in
need of that friendship to defend us
from the interference of the powers of
Continental Europe? And if such an
t secure thing as an alien nation's
riendship is all that preserves usfrom
the interference of other nations,&hall
we not hasten, while we may, to se
cure ourselves against it? An ade
quate navy and a great merchant
marine all of our own, manned by our
own citizens, is our best and safest
THE ANGLO-AMERICAN ALLIANCE.
A half serious, half humorous view
of this subject comes to us from an
English source which contains bo much
of practical sense and human feeling
as to deserve the attention of our read-
ers. ice writer says ne is not me au-
vocate of a formal alliance eo much as
of a good understanding between the
British Empire and the United States,
though which, if either nation shall
find itse'.f crowded to the wall, and
facing any combination oi foes, the
other shall step forward saying "I
have nothing to say about the origin
of the quarrel.or the merits of the case
at issue, but this is my brother whom
you have at bay, and while I have two
freehands you shall not punch his
head." The language may come from
the prize ring, but the statement
omes frm the heart of humanity.
HOMKTIIINO A ItOUT EXPANSION.
In its commercial seno this moans
the completing of the Nicaragua
canal, the retention of the Sandwich
islands, Porto Rico and the Philip
pines, and the acquirement of any
further territory necca-ary for naval
or coaling stations in remote sons
v liero our commerce may extend, and
the nation must prepare to protect it
This is called by its antagonists, im
perialism. It does not mean that in
itself, but only the wiso policy of an
Armour or a Field in laying the
foundation for a great business and
getting ready to protect that against
danger. In order to make tho interest
of all our citizens clear on this subject,
let us consider t under three heads.
Ou.- Resources. Wo have about
fifteen times as mm h coal as al the
world beside; we liavn incxhau-lib o
stores ol coin and aliii st a 1 other
metal, tiiut enter into the art-, be
sides U'6 products of our fo ests and
our sol. In these tespo ts no other
milion Can C mparo w;ih us except
Ru-sia. and our ability to develop ami
utilize these roou cos, iidded to the
preeminent mechanical skill and in
ventive tjeiiins of our working man,
leaves Russia entirely out of the
tiold of compstition. Now we cannot
consume at homo what wo annually
produce. Hence wo must let our agri
cultural products rot, or our fields lie
waste, our manufactories stop, our
mines close down, our railroads re
duce their trains, and our working
men remain idle, or we must lind
Foreign Markets In our domestic
exchanges the farmer uses his teams,
then the railroad takes his products,
and 6o eastern, western and southern
exchanges are effected. If we are to
carry our goods abroad we shall need
a merchant marine. At present Eng
lish and German vessels conduct most
of our exchanges. This is a worse
national policy than for the farmer to
hire teams to market his corn. In
that event the money would be kept at
home; but wo Americuns pay hun
dreds of millions of dollats every year
to enrich and strengthen foreign ship
owners who in the event of war would
become our most dangerous foes.
What then Is required? We must
enlarge our merchant service. This
will give employment to thousands of
sailors; raise up a body of American
seaman of inestimable value in case of
war and keep at home the money now
sent abroad to pay for the service of
foreign vessels. But the ettlciency and
safety of this navy will require the
Nicaragua canal and foreign coaling
and naval stations. And the foreign
markets, especially in the Orient,
means much more to ns than most
people appreciate. A single illustra
tion will suffice. Already the Pacific
coa6t sends certain grades of flour to
China exclusively, and then finds a
lucrative market. This takes much
of the wheat of that great region out
of competition with this interior and
the eastern seaboard, in the European
market. Cora has not Jet taken its
proper place among the cheap and
wholesome foods of the world. It will
do so at no distant day. When that
time comes and China begins to call
for corn and its products, the supply
can never equal the demand. Then
the Mississippi Valley fanners will oe
more interested in the Nicaragu
canal and American possessions in the
Orient, than anybody else.
The Interest of the Laboi ing Man.

that description, and threaten to

dition of the republican party todav
We have no further demand for our
products at home. We must find for
eign markets or reduce our outputs at
home. The policy of the administra
tion is to enlarge the foreign field and
to do thin in the mot effective and
permanent way. If the working men
refuse to sustain the policy insy may-
succeed in checking it, but in so doing
close foreign trade against us and stop
altogether or seriously check the ex
port cf wheat, corn, steel and all other
products of our farms and our shops.
Are they prepared to take this step?
THE MILES-EAGAN WAR AGAIN.
T.he fact teat a court martial is
about to be commenced to try General
agan for "conduct unbecoming an
officer atd a gentleman ' will not
change public opinion on one phase of
the question, whatever the verdict
may be the course of General Miles
was aggravating to the last degree.
Granted that General Eagan went, to
unpardonable length in his testimony
before the committee of inquiry, and
that his language amounted to an
aff i ont to them, and that for this he
should be punished, it remains that
General Miles is not blameless tbat
he has pondered to a newspaper cry
for the investigation of the war de
partment, for the all too evident pur
pose of reaching Secretar3T Alger, and
has allowed himself to speak in a man
ner "unbecoming the head of the
army. At ine time oi nis assignment
to this high position it was understood
that President Cleveland hesitated
long before deciding. It now appears
that he had better reasons than the
general public understood.
IN AN article on local government
J. Sterlirg Morton, in The Conserva
tive, pays the following compliment
to the board of county commissioners
of Cass county: "Cs county makes
a better Bhowing for inexpensive locnl
government than any of tho older
counties of the territory and state, as
her annual levy has averaged only 1
per cent from 18G5 to 189), and in the
latter yoar was only a little over 1
cent on tho dollar."
OLD PLYMOUTH PfLPIT.
The call of Dr. Hillis of Chicago to
the Brooklyn pulpit, rendered famous
and historic by Henry Ward Beecher
and his successor, Lyman Abbott, de
serves more than passing notice. Dr.
Hillis, as pastor of an Evanston Pies
byterian church. became so well known
te the independent congregation of Dr.
David Swing in Chicago, that on the
death of that popular preacher he was
invited to succeed him. Manv prop
h cies of failure followed his accept
ance of tho call, but he soon cime to
bo recognized, not only as the worthy
successor oi a wortny man, put as a
stronger thinker, if, of possibly a less
pontic temperament than his fame us
predecessor. Of course the fame of
the puipit to which he is now called
will attract m my eyes which have
failed hithei to to maik the appear
ance of this young blur in the west,
and si me may trerr.Wo for his future,
Butt-uperior pulpit genius, tho gen
uine celestial fire, is not so common a
to fail of full appreciation in lireoklyn
or anywhere else.

J no White Star lino steamer
Oceanic, tho largest steamer ever
built, was successfully launched at
Ilarland & Wolf's yard at Belfast re
cently in tho presence of an enormous
crowd. The Oceanic is 704 feet long
and registers over 17,000 tons. The
Oceanic, unlike the Great Eastern,
which was launched broadside, was
launched stern foremost, though
longer and weighing half as much
again as the Great Eastern. The
Oceanic has a coal capacity sufficient
to enable her to circumnavigate tho
globe at a speed of twelve knots an
hour without rtcoaling.
There are no new developments in
tho smallpox situation in Omaha. The
victims of the disease are progressing
satisfactorily toward recovery and no
new cases have been reported. Phy
sicians are vaccinating the children in
tho Comenius, Druid Hill and Daven
port public schools and in the St.
Wencoslaus school, the latter a Bo-
hemhin parochial school. When the
vaccination is completed in these
schools, all school children in the
school districts in which the disease
exists, except attendants of the High
school, will have beon innoculated,
The physicians will then commence
visitation at the rest of the city
schools. Residents in the far northern
part of the city are considerable
wrought up over the establishment of
the pest house near Fort Omaha.
Capt. William Taylor of Terre
Haute, Ind., has forwarded to Wash-
ington a claim against the government
in tho sum of $72,500. The matter will
be looked after by Congressman
George W. Faris. During the civil
war Captain Taylor was engaged in
building a canal from the Bayou Fuch
to the Mississippi river near New Or
leans. When Farragut ran the chain
of forts and entered the river Taylor
sought out the naval commander and
offered his services and the use of his
litiht draught vessels. The offer was
immediately accepted, for the pres
ence of a pilot who knew the shallow
waters was invaluable. When Com
modore Farragut ieturned to Wash
ington Captain Taylor was given
p:sses through the federal lines at.d
went to the cpiial to present his
claim. Farragut was mortally ill and
they wee not admitted. He then re
turned to the Mississippi river and
se; ved as pilot for the federal govern
ment until the close of the war. Sev
eral times he narrowly escap. d death
at the hands of southern guerillas, and
both his parents were murdered by
them. Captain Taylor had never pre
sented the claim before, but expects
tbat there .will be no difficulty is se
curing indemity for the vessels.

On Sunday last three residents of Oak
land named H. H. Thompson, Charles
Monro and Charles Gsell visited the
beach at Alameda, and at the foot of a
cliff one of the men found a substantial
looking pocketbook. it contained no
money, but two letters, evidently
written by a well educated German.
Gsell. who is well versed in that lan
guage, translated the letters and then
hurried with them to the police. One
of the letters gave instructions to the
receiver, who was addressed as
Brother,'' as to the placing of eleven
infernal machines in the hotels of San
Francisco by as many different parties.
Each agent was to secure a room in a
certain hotel on January 30, place a
machine therein and then depart.
Efich muchine was so regulated as to
be fired in seven hours. The receiver
of the letters found at Alameda wai
promised, in cao of success, the
leadership of an orgriniziiion of ahar
c hist s in Chicago. Tho letter con
tained minute details as to how tho
work whs to bo done, and indicated
from the lnnguago used that tho men
involved are fishermen.
There is much interest in local rail
way circles over the meeting of the
Western Passenger association in
cngo next Monday, says The Omaha
Beo. At this meeting it is expected
that u general strengthening of the
association throughout tho territory
it controls will bo accomplished. Homo
seekers' excursions will bo a fertile
topic of discussion on this occasion,
and it is said among tho local passen
ger men that the terms granted this
e'ass of patrons will bo even more lib
eYal than in the past. The restric
tions, however, ate expected to be
more severe, which will mean tho le
ducingofthe time limit to some ex
tent. Tho western lines and especially
those reaching this ten itory are in
favor of granting any reasonable con
cession to this class.
Says an exchange: The stamp-col
lectors are a ha-rmless people, and it

Frank J. Woodard, a Hamilton

lost his life. Deputy Warden D.iwson,
who 6enten2ed Woodard, states that

Speculation has been rife in Alliance
this week regarding a report that the
Burlington wouid at on"e commence
the building of a branch from here to
the southwest, says The Alliance
Times. General Superintendent T.
E. Calvert came in Monday morning
and depar ed overland with his own
vehicle, accompanied by a friend,
who-e name we did not learn. The
rumor was to the effect that the Union
Pacific had started grading at North
Platte for a branch line up the river,
and th;it the Burlington would at once
commence work so as to be first in the
Platte territ ry. We have it from a
reliable official source that dirt is not
beirg thrown at North Platte, but
that the jcu ney by Mr. Calvert into
that ten itory is simply for the pur
pose of looking over the line as sur
veyed three years ago and teeing for
himself just what advancement has
been made by the irrigated section
into which a new road would build.
We are also assured that when the
Burlington does conclude to build it
will be with the inteution of obtaining
the most direct line possible to Denver.
This being the case it is pretty certain
that when the road dees build from
Alliance and sooner or later one will
be built it will cross the river at a
point sovornl miles cast of Coring, and
probably cast of Bayard. A fur ns
present building is concerned, our in

During the Battle of
SICK OR WKLIv, A RUSH
NIGHT AND DAY.
The Packers at the Battle ot Santiago dc
Cuba Were All Heroes Their Heroic
Efforts In Getting Ammunition and
Patlons.To the Front Saved the Day.
P. E. Butler, of pack-train No. 3,
writing from Santiago do Cuba, on
July 23, says: "Wo all had diarrhoea
in more less violent form, and when
we landed vo had no time to see a
doctor, for it was a caso of rush and
rush night and day to keep tho troops
supplied with amunition and rations,
but thanks to Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, wo
were able to keep at work and keep
our health; in fact, I sincerly bolievo
that at one critical time this medicine
was the indirect savior of our army,
for if tho packers had been unablo to
work there would have been no way
of getting supplies to the front. Ther e
were no roads that a wagon train
could use. My comrade and myself
had the good fortune to lay in a sup
ply of this medicine for our pack-train
before we left Tampa, and I know in
four cases it absolutely saved life."
