Without indulging in the certain re
flection that pea--e is assured, we may
at least rejoice in the evidence that
comes from Manila of trie competency
of the Americtn government, the
merican army and the American
navy to maintain and demonstrate the
sovereign power or tne ivmerican
nation, says the Chicago Times-
Herald. There can mw bo no doubt
th:t we aie equal to the demands cf a
colonial policy, that we are capable of
expansion il we wish t.oexpind. The
doleful forebodings of these fearful
prophets who would have us accept
tne alternatives oi scuttling as tne
r.e eeape from an interminable war
have, been ea-t back at them for a re
proach within less than three months.
What a wonderful record is that
which we have made, how sti-nngto
the national spi'il, how withering to
the doubters. In tho progress of our
arms victory has followed victory in
. . 1
quielv succession, anu mere uat nut
been a tingle repulse. hat a splendid
superiority our men have disDlaycd
over Filipinos and Spaniards, over in
trenched positions and climatic condi
tions. It is now almost a year to a
day since Dewey sailed into Manila
harbor, and in that time we have not
only wrested her colonial domain from
Spain, but have proved also that we
could erect peaceful govornir cnts over
subjects who were ever in rebellion
against her, and easily subdue a
threatening revolt which might have
distracted the Philippines for years.
The testimony to a remarkable race
supremacy is overwhelming. Our
sailors and soldiers both have been so
confident of it that they have assumed
it to be a matter of course that they
should win. This calm assumption,
full of an unconscious egoism is part
of the evidence in. the case. When
Colonel Funstou was complimented on
one of his daring and reckless deeds
he looked t.urprised and replied that
it required no pirticular courage. Our
men were protecting him, and the
Filipinos couldn't shoot, anyway.
That is typical of the general feel
irjr, of the conviction which carried
the American soldier through the
series of bri-li.int, inspiring rushes
that has so cruelly upset the calcula
tions of the dismal Jcremies. In two
months and a half all is practically
over. The struggle which was inau
gurated on the eve of the ratification
of tho pe.tca treaty by the United
States senate is reduced from a vague
indt finite forever to a ludicrously
small and nearly definite portion of
time. What remains will be at most
but brief desultory fighting, and, if
the proper policy is pursued, even this
may be avoided. So much has true
Americanism accomplished, while

tributary, the Alburn, which conies
from tho Abyssinian highlands, pays
the New York Sun. In building the
railroad from the lower Nile to Khar
toum, hundreds of miles alorg tho
rirut bank of tho river, it is necessary
therefore to erect only one bridge.
This bridge will tie an iron and steel
structure over aiiuartor o? a mile in

Tho British government is having
this bridge built in America b.'cause
there is pressing need for it to obviate
considerable delay in tho completion
of tho railroad, and we can turn it out
more quickly than British builders
would agree to do. Tho prodigious
work of developing Africa will require
many bridges and a great deal of ma
chinery, and our builders and manu
facturers are perfectly able to compete
successfully with the rest of tho world
for the supply of many of these- pro
ducts. Tiik dinner habit is growing in the
democratic party. This has many
pitfalls for a man like Bryan, who
goes to nearly al! of them, and who
talks wherever he goes. At each din
ner he makes an assault on Jefferson-
lsm or Jacksonism in some shape, and
some of his dupes are beginning to
see this, says the Globe-Democrat. In
each of his speeches the republicans
find much to attack. If ho keeps on
talking from this time to the opening
of the democratic convention with
such recklessness as he has been dis
playing in the past two weeks the
democrats will bo frightened into re
jecting him. His vanity, however, is
likely to keep his tongue active until
the convention meets. lie seeks the
nomination, and he believes that his
speeches will give it to him. The
republicans are graying that he will
sweep the convention, as he did in
18!)0. lie will be far easier to beat at
polls now than he was then.

was wine, died at the Perkins Louse
about six o'clock this morning. As
far its known the deeeaed had no rel
atives in this country, having made his

ferent farmers in the county. He was
a carpenter by trade, and aside from
periodical sprees was an industrious
and competent workman.

where it was prepared for burial, and
interment was made about 5 o'clock,

The adjourned meeting of the city
council was held in the council cham
ber last evening for tho purpose of
considering the applications for liquor
licenses and druggists' permits for the
ensuing year. A few other matters
were also disposed of at the meeting.
Tho bond of M. M. Heal, who was
appointed to fill tho vacancy in the
Fifth ward, was approved and that
gentleman took his s-eat, after being
The matter of applications for li-
conpes was then taken up. Tho clerk
read a remonstrance against issuing a
lieenso to A. G. Hroback, signed by
Mrs. Ilattie Cole, Mrs. Iloba White
and Mrs. Allio Kennedy. In tho re
monstrance the applicant is charged
with violating tho Slocum law in tho
illegal salo of liquor, with not having
tho requisite number of signers to his
petition and not having complied with
tho city ordinance in tho publication
of his notice. An examination of the
petition revealed the fact that it con
tained the requisite number of signers,
but, on account of tho other charges,
he was not granted a license, and a
hearing on tho matter was set for this
evening at 8:30 o'clock at the council
The bonds of the entire number of
applicants wero read and an effort was
made to railroad all of them through
at once, but Councilman Hinshaw ob
jected to this and demanded that the
bonds be read and acted upon sep
arately, which was done. Tho bonds
of Phil Thierotf, F. G. Egenberger
and Ed. Uonat ware reported as good
by the committee and licenses were
granted. Anton Nitka's bond was not
complete and John Mumm's notice
not having been published the re
quired number of times, they were
both laid over.
Tho matter of publishing the notices
in other than the official paper of the
city was discussed at eomo length.
Sattler contended that there was no
official paper and Hinshaw claimed
that tho paper having the contract to
do the city printing was the official
pap.er, as has been in the past. City
Attorney Beeson gave as his opinion
that, a newspaper of general circula
tion was a legal paper and that publi
cation in any such paper was legal.

which have heretofore governed this
matter did not cut any figure.

the opinion that pine, evergreen and

Delia Meyers, tho fourteen-year-old
girl who disappeared last Sunday and
who was located by the Omaha police
yesterday and brought home by Sheriff
Wheeler, was taken before Judge
Spurlock this afternoon, charged with
incorrigibility. The evidence of the
girl showed that on last Sunday
night, the night of her disappearance,
she was persuaded by a young man
around town to accompany himself
and another cou; le, composed of
Mamie Noah, a woman of ill repute,
and her companion, to one of the wine
cellars south of town. The party re
turned late and the girl was afraid to
go home, and instead stayed all night
at the home of the Noah woman.
Hearing the next morning that her
father was looking for her and in
tended to punish her severely, she de
termined to walk to Omaha, and did
so tar as La Platte, where sho caught
a freight trun into South Omaha, as
She had fully determined not to re
turn home, and had written to her
parents to that effect a few minutes
before taken charge of by the officers,
and stated further that &he would not
siay at home if her parents continued
to reside here. Sho stated to the court
that she felt herself fully competent
to make her own living.
The state asked that she be com
mitted to the re.'orm school, the sen
tence to be suspended during her good
behavior. A. J. Graves was appointed
by the court in her behalf, ami made a
plea for her liberty, urging that a
girl of her age (fourteen) could not be
incorrigible, and that she would be so
much better taken care of in the
future by her parents that a reform
school sentenco was unnecessary.
The court, after some further ex
amination of Delia, concluded to sen
tence her to the reform school, and al
low hor to go home with her father,
the sentence to ba enforced at any
time further complaint was made.
IiyilSS HELEN M. WINSLOW of
Boston, at the third biennial of
the General Federation of Women's
clubs held at Louisville, Ky., in 189G,
road a most interesting paper on "The
Boston Public Library." It is full of
interest from start to finish, but we
gloan only here and there for the
readers of Tiik News who are inter
ested in libraries:
"The Boston public library was tho
pioneer of free libraries iu the United
States to bo supported by general tax
ation and therefore truly f public li
brary. It is not loo much to claim
that it is still the most important of
all American libraries, as well as tho
most beautiful library building in the
"Away back in 1836, one Lemuel
Shottuck of Boston suggested tho noed
of a suitable place to preserve the ar
chives and documents of the city. In
1841 Alexander Vattemare, who had
visited America, sent fifty volumes as
a gift from Paris to Boston. This
formed the basis of the Boston public
library of six hundred andthirty thous
and volumes of today. For seventeen
years the feasibility of a pub ic li
brary was debated, with the' result
that on January 1, 1858, what we call
the old building was dedicated on
Boylston street. It was quite time,
for already the fifty volumes of Vatte
mare had increased to seventy thous
and volumes, and in response to Ed
ward Everett's plea that day, that
every person present should give one
book to the institution, fifteen hun
dred more wero received in a few
days. The library was but the mi
terial exprossion of the golden age of
American literary life. Emerson,
Longfellow, Lowell, Hawthorne,
Holmes, Whittier in literature; Tick
nor, Prescott, Park man. Motley, Pal
frey, in history and scholarship;Greeo
loaf, Story and Parsons, in juris
prudence; Daniel Webster, Itobert C
Winthrop, Edward Everett and Wen
dell Phillips in oratory these are the
men who gave to Boston its life and
culture in 1S58.
"It requires courage and ability to
lay the foundations of a great pubi c
library aright; and, although the
names of those city fathers and private
individuals who together laid deep
and strong foundations are commem
orated in the pavements of the en
trance hall to the new library, more
enduring still is their scholarship and
fine judgment, which established a
tone that lastingly pervades the a'
mosphere of the institution, and
makes it second to none in the world.
"The Boston library is seventh in
point of size in the world. The Na
tional library of Paris is the largest,
with two million, six hundred thous
and volumes; the Imperial, at St.
Petersburg, has one milliou peven
hundred and eighty thousand volumes;
the British Museum follows, with one
million six hundred and fifty thousand
volume.-; the Munich library has nine
hundred and forty thousand volumes;
the University of Strsaburg and the
library at Washington each have
seven hundred thousand, according to
the latent statistics, and Boston has
six hund red and thirty thousand vol
umes." Then Miss Winslow gives a de
scription of this immense building,
which cost two million, three hun
dred and sixty-eight thousand dollar?.
The immediate model of this building
was the Bibliothcque Ste. Genevive in
Paris, the architecture of which is in
the style of the Renaissance.
"The staircase is unequaled in mag
nificence by unything in tho United
States. It tells at onco the true in
tention of the building, and that the
building is none tha less a palace for
being the property of the people and
not the king. It took several years to
obtain the marble used in the stair
case hall. Very many slabs were re
jected as not suitable to tho color
scheme. At one time it looked a if
it would be impossible to get a suffi
cient supply, for the only quarry from
which it couid be had was owned by a
monastery which was unwilling at the
time to reopen it, and was only in
duced to do so by the personal persuc
tion of a member of the board of trui-J
tees, who visited Siena for that sole
"This staircase is one of the eights
of Boston. Last summer two rural
sisters were seen inspecting it, when
one said: 'This is very good imita
tion marble, very good.' 'Oh, isn't it
real marble?' asked the other, 'I
thought it was.' 'No,' was the re
sponse, 'it is only imitation, but very

The Woman's club m jt at Mrn. S. II.
Atwood'a home Saturday evening,
April 29. The attendance was large,
the rooms being well filled. A large
number of visitorn, both ladies and
gentlemen, were present. Tho:e be
ing very little business to be done it
was soon attended to, and after the
reading of tho minutes of the last
session the report of the committee ap
pointed lo vidit the schools, Mrs. Fel
lows and Mrs. Stouten borough, was
heard. Mrs. Fellows gave a very
elaborate report of their visit to the
ward schools, and while sho had words
of praise for the works of teachers and
pupils, she couid not but censure tho
lack of care for tho outside. Mrs.
Stoutenborough then took charge of
the meeting, the department of Eng

The first on the program was a piano
solo by Miss Smith, followed by a
description of the cathedrals of Can
turbury by Miss Leving, Litchfield by
Miss Anna Sullivan and York by Miss
Mayme Sullivan. The three cathedrals
were well described, showing careful
work and much study.
A vocal duet by Miss Lansing and
Ralph White was very good and called
forth a hearty encore. Mrs. Stouten
borough then, in a neat little speech,
introduced Miss McIIugh of Omaha.
Miss McHugh spoke of Hiwthorne,
giving Lis life and general character,
his likes and dislikes, etc., but her
subject particularly was the 'Mar
bleJjFaun." The characters in this
she described very carefully, taking
her listeners with her until one could
imagine themselves as being with
them, and her discourse was interest
ing throughout Those present had a
few moments for greetings before the
storm came up.
This meeting closed the work of the
Woman's club for the fall and spring
of 1898-9. The next meeting will be
Friday evening, May 12, for etection
of officers for the next year and finish
ing up the business for this year.

As in the case of kIiock, it i a good
plan, if one can, to have several pairs
in use at a time, the rule applying to
gloves as well as to shoes. The fastid

in an appointed place, and should be
trained to have no heedlessness in this
matter. Much valuable time is con
sumed when one never knows where
one's habiliments are.

could hardly follow the movement, of
his hands and body.
