At their mecling yesterday the county commissioners elected Thomas Svoboda to the position of janitor at the court house, a position whi.h he has held for a short time since the death of his brother Frank, ami in which he was in charge for a number of years past though in the name of his brother whose health wassuchthat he himself could not attend to the duties thereof. In giving this position to Mr. Thomas Svoboda, the comtnis sionwers have recognized merit, and have retained one of the most faithful and accommodating men that posi tion ever had. WASHINGTON, Dec. 21. (Sim cial Correspondence.) The president has sent to the senate the nomination of Judge Lurton of Tennessee as an associate justice of the supreme court, notwithstanding the protests and ob jections filed, and it is generally under stood that he will be confirmed. The principal objections to the judge are on account of his age, being over sixty, as well as the charge that he has private cars furnished him by rail road.!, and that his decisions have uniformly favored corporations. These charges are being investigated, but by the government and the fanners should profit by it, and if these ad vi'. nee lectures prove successful the practice will be continued, covering the fanning communities of the west. Mrs. Taft will perforin most of her social duties by proxy, as her health i will not permit her to ..ndertake t!ie strain of all the White House func-; turns. She lias already reduced the number of invitations, and will con stitute iier sister or some cabinet lady to bear the burden of general recep tions. She is more exclusive th;.:i was Mrs. Roosevelt, and is seldom seen on the streets of this city, either vis ting or shopping. A great flood of bills were intro duced in Congress the opening day, but few of them, however, will return to the house for action, as it is under stood that many bills are never to be reported from the committees. Hills of this kind are introduced to satisfy constituents, without any hope of passing, and include those relating to post Jilice im ldinfr. . Therefore, if you see that your congressman has introduced a bill for the purchase of a site and the construction of a building at your town, do not think that he is serious in the matter as he knows that it will n;ver be reported back to the house, but will die a quiet death in committee, as he intended r Rests In Silent City. Sunday the remains f James Railing, for a numbers of year a res ident of this place, arrived from his late heme at (ireenwood accompanied by his son W. F. Railing and family and other friends and was n.ct at the station by members of the Masonic lodge of this place, of which Mr. Railing was a member during his life time. The body was escorted to the Fpiscopal church where the services were conducted by Canon Rurgcss, who also delivered the funeral oration of Mrs. Railing some years since. The remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery, according to the im pressive ritual of the Masonic order. Mr. Railing ' was born in London. Fngland in 1S23, and was SO years of age. While in England he was united in marriage with Miss Morgan and removed to this place in 1S07, living here until about fifteen years since when he went to (ireenwood to live at the home of his son, Walter K. Pailing. A Beauty and No Mistake. No one that passes the store of 1' A. Wurl at the coiner of Main and Sixth streets but are struck by the heautv of the large double windows which he has dressed in holly upon the i lattice work in the back. The display (M) of the Roods which the window con-1 and (ins is iilsn nurk which any window- from L is not thought they are serious . .. i i.: . : 4:.... OOUKo i ) prevent ma cimm m.-iuuii, as the president is strongly impressed with his legal ability. The judge is a democrat in politics and will probably have the united and ardent support of his party in the senate, as he is re garded by all as a man of Ability. It is almost certain that the Pairuna c:mal commission will either be abol ished or reduced to one man, as coin- . plaints have come to congress of the red tape in matters c nnected with that service, besides this, it is found to be a very expensive body and large ly maintained for the purpose of giv ing to some politicians lucrative po sitions with but little, if any, work. The fossils, skins ami various specimens obtained by Mr. Roosevelt in his African hunt, are being placed on exhibition at the museum here, and arc attracting unusual attention. While a number of his specimens are t.. rare, the great majority ate lammai derive their curio value only the fact that they are contrih- it should. The speaker of the house and his friends have alreai'y given their dis approval of the postal savings bank scheme, and he has placed at the head of the post office committee an avow ed opponent of any such measure. Therefore, the friends of this popular idea may as well give up any thought of favorable action at the present session. Mrs. It. I). Shean and little son, Chester, came in yesterday from Cialcsburg, Ills., and will make an ex tended visit at Mrs. Shean's parents Mr. and Mrs. C. II. Smith.

Salsbury was in Omaha and Hellevue attending a meeting if the Presbyterian board which was con sidering matters relative to the changes which had been talked of regarding the Hellevue college. No definite conclusion has been arrived at in the matter, otherwise than that the school will not continue to be a college, but he continueil as an academy or institute, as otherwise the buildings and grounds would ri ven to the: donor, Henry T.
