AGUINALDO is on the coast with a
sea in front of him and General Young
and his cavalry behind him. His
situation is almost as precarious as
that of bis running mate,W. J. Bryan.
The latest from South Africa is that
Laydsmith hesitates about being taken
and General Joubert refuses to stay
dead. Sir Rodvers Buller is traveling
incognito while the British are anx
ious to know what the Boers are going
Rev. Fred Warren has branched
out into the newspaper field and is
running a warm pop paper up in Polk
county. His editorials are so hot that
they curl the paper. If Rev. Fred
isn't on both sides of every question
within a year we miss our guess.
It seems to be the money in the
office of clerk of the supreme court
that attracts fusion patriots, and not
cheap glory. The allied forces of re
form cannot insure the country
against imperialism and the gold
standard until they get possession of
this office, and then the country will
If D. E. Thompson should get a
controlling interest in the Omaha Bee

how to run a paper that is a paper.
Colonel Thompson never smelled the
smoke of defeat until he tackled a sen
atorial boom, and in that line Colonel
HitchcocK knows how it feels to stand
out in the hall while the banquet is go
ing on inside.
Considerable complaint comes to
The News in regard to owners and
keepers of cows who persist in turning
their animals loose at night to forage
upon innocent citizens. This is a
nuisance that the city officials should
strive to do away with at the earliest
possible date. No person cares to
have cattle eating up everything
that is left outside.
Hebe is a chance for Mr. Bryan.
The Tagal organ in the Philippines,
the Independencia, declares that
"Rizal, Bryan and Aguinaldo are the
glorious trinity of our political re
demption." If Mr. Bryan and his as
sociates in the United States are suffi
ciently helpful to enable Aguinaldo to
establish independence in the Philip
pines, Mr. Bryan might transfer his
presidential aspirations to that spot,
where he appaars, according to the
Indepencia, to be extremely popular.
Preachers of the African Metho
dist church in New Jersey propose to
urge definite action among the col
ored religious bodies of the state to
stay the increase of crime among that
people. Penal statistics of the state
show that in its prisons the average of
white convicts ehow that in its pris
ons the average of white convicts is
as 1 to 1,463 of population, while col
ored prisoners are in startling propor
tion of 1 to 160. It is evidently time
for missionary work among them on
the part of their own race and others,
and they seem to stand in the most
urgent need of it.
American capital is being rapidly
invested in the island which have of
late come under the control of the
the United States government. The
business men of the country realize
that we have to send abroad $250,000,
000 a year for tropical products, and
think they might as well get their
share of the profits from the produc
tion of these articles, every dollar's
worth of which can be grown in Cuba,
Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Philip
pines, and thus keep this vast sum of
money within our borders instead of
distributing it to the outside world
The old soldiers of the war of 1861-5
have nn patience with the perform
ances of the fault-finders in the so
called democratic party of today. Gen
eral Dan Sickels, who was in Wash
ington the other day, said: "I have
always baen a democrat and always
expect to be one, but Bryanism is not
the faith of the old-time leaders of the
party. I would scorn myself were I
to pretend to indorse such principles
as were embodied in the Chicago plat
form, which has already nearly made
shipwreck of the democratic party;
and if put forward again, the verdict
against it will be more overwhelm
ingly crushing than in 1896."
A UNIQUE question is being raised
in the various courts of the state which
may have a far reaching influence.
The constitution of the United States
provides that no person shall be tried
for a felony without having been first
indicted by a grand jury. The statutes
of this. state permit prosecution upon
information without an indictment.
The supreme court of this state has
held that an information is sufficient,
but the attorneys for Bolln, the do-
faulting treasurer of Omaha, have
taken the question to the United
States supreme court, where it will be
finally settled. The attorneys for
Harris raised the same question yes
terday, but the judge followed the
holding of the state court and over
ruled the plea in abatement. The
Bolln case will be followed with keen
interest by attorneys generally, as
many states have pursued tha same
course as Nebraska.
Eveky year when the rich autumn
days of October set in, with cool
nights but warm noons, there is a cry
of "Indian summer" prematurely
raised. But the real Indian summer
comes at a later date; generally at the
middle of November, and sometimes is
prolonged until the first week of De
cember. Indeed it is, on the whole.
nearer to December than to October
It is Indian summer which we are now
enjoying, a season wnicn maKes our
changeful and often inclement climate
for the time the most perfect in the
world. We may fix the date of its oc
currence by coupling it with the SL
Martin's summer of our European
cousins, which comes with or follows
St. Martin's Day, November 11. But
the date is most of what the two have
in common, the eastern season being
indeed mild in temperature, but gen
erally damp, moist an unpleasant.
INFORMATION AND OPINION.
The state of North Dakota has just
passed its tenth birthday. "Fleet-
footed civilization!" cries the Bis
marck Tribune. "But yesterday we
had the sod shack, the ox team, the
prairie schooner and the war-whoop
of the untamed red roan; today we
have soirees, musicales, pink teas and
functions, and we have golfers in plaid
cloaks and populist3 with whiskers.
We are only ten years old, but we are
a great state."
General Nelson A. Miles and Mrs.
Miles will not return to Washington

"Then give him this flower as my

Admiral Dewey is ded tired of be
ing lionizod, and no wonder. He can't
go down town to buy a piece of chew
ing tobacco without being surrounded
by a howling horde of lunaticd who
want to grasp his band and get a lock
of his hair. He detests th-it sort of
thing, and shows it plainly enough,
yet the half civilized people of the
east do not take a tumble, but go on
persecuting him. The admiral will
probably have to go to see again, to
enjoy rest and quiet. By the way, a
man was interviewed at Athioon the
other day with curious results. Before
and during the fight at Manila he was
captain of the gun crew on the ad
miral's flag ship, and did good execu
tion; this man has nothing but criti
cism for Dewey, and he says that the
sailors on the Olympia hated him.

Further contempt proceedings have
been brought at Boston in connection
with the suit of Joseph C. Woodbury
against Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, to re
cover damages for alleged libel. This
time the action is instituted against
the defendant by the plaintiff. An
order of notice has been issued by the
superior court, returnable on Monday,
for the defendant to show cause why a
writ of attachment should not bo is

alleged that the defendant caused to

in which the issues involved in the

pain soon left him. He says this grand
medicine is what his country needs.

undergarment which was intended to
be waterproof. He expected to make
a fortune by the sale of the same to
miners, seafaring men and others
whose vocations are pursued in damp
or wet places. Unfortunately for
Clark, however, when he donned the
new garment and submitted it to a
heat test the rubber lining melted and
stuck to his body, so that the fabric
was only removed with the aid of a
pair of scissors and a scraping knife,
and with great pain to the wearer.

The subject of a young lady's essay,
who was graduated from a high school
in an Ohio town, was "Hawthorne,"
and in her essay she said, "At the age
of thirty-nine Hawthorne married and

day after the commencement one of the
village maidens called on Miss E., and
