The senate committee thinks him not entitled to a seat. It is quite possible he has served us long enough, anyhow. The republican members of the Iowa ttnte legislature will hold a caucus this evening to nominate a candidate for JUnited States senator. It is all but a certaintv that Gear will be the successful candidate. Lee Herdman baa been endorsed by ths "machine" for clerk of the su preme court and every effort possible is to be made to oust D. A. Campbell, without waiting until the expiration of his four-year term. Bkigiiam Roberts' growing ''bit ter" suggests that his chances for be ing seated are not growing better. He Bays the eastern missionaries who went to Utah to oppose Mormon ism have "hounded" him. TnE fusionists are going to begin early. The time set for their 6tate convention i for the selection of dele gates to the national convention is March 19. The place of holding the convention has not yet been deter mined. TnE Conservative, published by J Sterling Morton, has many subscrib ers all over the United States. Mr. Morton is looked upon as one of the brainiest men in the country, and whether you agree with him or not. politically, you will want to see what he has to say on national questions. Tub Plattsmouth Telephone com pany's new local exchange card shows that it has 314 'phones in the city. The efforts of the new company are certainlv beiner appreciated by our citizens. In a short time a directory will be published, giving connections with other independent lines, which will give us connections with about ei?htv cities and towns. Let the good work go on! INFORMATION AND OPINION. Immigration officials say that many foreigners in this country aro living in a condition of abject slavery. At Avon, N. Y., there is a colony of 270 Italians who are under the dirert con trol of one man, who hires them to farmers and fruit growers and takes who perform the labor gets little more .L - - .1. .AAA ft n A n mi Q All , buildings 6heds. 'little better than cattle Telephone lines are to be con structed in the mountain counties of j Kentucky. In this project there is promise of mitigation of the horrors of feuds. When the survivors on one side of a feud can employ the tele phone in conveying sentiments to sur vivors on the other side, there will be fewer opportunities for words to lead up to bullets and buckshot. In war it is a common thing lor a soldier's life to be saved by the bullet of the enemy striking a bible carried In the pocket. True as this is, it does not account for the fact that every Boer soldier carries a bible in his hip pocKet. The way the Boers have been fighting, the bullet would have to nnaa throueh the man before it r reached the bible. nnm Prtiil is achieving as creat a reputation for bottling up British trnnns as Hobson did "by his efforts toward bottling up the Spanish sailors in Santiago harbor. One danger to which Paul will ever remain imper vious is that he need have no fear of being Hobsonized. Bee. The total value of the eggs and chickens marketed in the United States last year was $290,000,000. The mag nitude of the poultry industry is made more evident in the fact that the value of the 1898 potato crop was only 880, 000,000, and the total value of the pig iron output seldom exceeds $130,000, 000, while the annual output of coal amounts only to about $200,000,000. A train load of broad-gauge cars of gold ore from Cripple Creek has just arrived in Denver. This shipment is worth more than any train load of ore ever sent out, probably, from any min ing district in the world. One car contains about thirty tons, and it is estimated nt $250,000. The other thir teen cars are also high grade. Five armed guards arrived with the train. The commissioner of internal rev enue has decided that a physician who prescribes whiskey, brandy or any alcoholic liquor, which is not com pounded with any drug or medicinal substance, for the purpose of forming r remedy, shall be required to pay the special internal revenue tax of $25 a year as a retail liquor dealer, provided he acts as a dispenser as well as physi cian.

Col. de Villeboia Mareull has joined the Boer forces ana will give thorn tbE benefit of a long experience in military tactics,- which he acquired in the French army. When a lieutenant the new Boer recruit fought in the Franco Prussian war, and received promotion. In January, 1890, he re signed his position in the Erench army because he was disappointed in not receiving a generalcy. Attorney General Campbell is of the opinion that the state of Colorado, through Governor Thomas, as trustee for the people, ought to begin working some of the supposed gold mines that exist on the mineral lands that nave come into the possession of the state land board, to be used for the benefit of the school fund. The senate committee on commerce has made a favarable report on resolu tions extending the thanks of congress to Lieutenant Frank H. Newcomb of the revenue cutter Hudson, and to the officers and men of his command for heroic gallantry in rescuing the tor pedo boat Winslow, when she was dis abled in the engagement at Cardenas. A gold medal of honor fa awarded Lieutenant Newcomb, and silver med als to his officers and bronze medals to his crew. Defend Free High School Lw.

A Legacy of Pretense. Just one hundred years ago the Man hattan Company of New York was In corporated by Aaron Burr. Its osten sible purpose was to supply the city with water. Its real purpose was to open a bank. The reason for the con cealment was because there was a pop ular prejudice against banks. A tank was built, hollow logs laid for pipes, and water was dlributed until 1840. In order to keep Its charter, this great banking company, which still exists, is today obliged to pump water from its ancient tank. A pitcherfu! is al ways in evidence at its annual meet ings, and a committee solemnly re ports that no applications for water have been refused. The story has its humorous side, but it illustrates the legacy of pretense and useless effort which roundabout methods always en tail. Aaron Burr's mode of seeking one object under cover of another hua many followers, but in politics or so ciety or in Individual relations It can never be commended and seldom ex cused.
