The verdict of the jury in the case
of The State of Nebraska vs. Harris
was not a surprise, as it was difficult
to remove from the minds of the
jurors the character of the deceased
and the principal witnesses for the
state. For this reason the case was
exceedingly difficult to try. County
Attorney Root made a vigorous prose
cution and many favorable comments
are heard upon his closing argument
in the case.
The new year is likely to see the

the treasury department, and the con

Leading silver republicans of Idaho
are refusing to co-operate longer with
the democrats and populists and are
preparing to return to republican
ranks. Secretary of State Patrie, who
was elected as a silver republican in
fusion with democrats, has written a
letter to leading silver republicans of
the state, saying: "I do not see that
up to date anything has been accom
plished by the coalition of the silver
republicans with the democracy ex
cept the upbuilding of the democratic
party and the destruction of the re
publican party in the states in which
silver republicans were strong," and
adds that "it would be impossible for
me to identify myself with the demo
cracy and become a democrat."

The other day, in a Sunday-school
