English, who, it will be re membered was the democratic candi date for vice president when Han cock ran for president, in 1SS0, died at his home in Indianapolis yesterday. Toe report is that President Kreuger of the Transvaal has accepted an in vitation to visit England to talk ovei Transvaal matters. "Will you walk into my parlor? said the spider to the fly ! JuDtnxit by appearances, the beet sugar convention at Fremont last week was a party affair, as all the stated ad dresses were in favor of "protection" and of a sugar bounty. It was a sig nificant fact, however, that theonly practical sugar maker was opposed to the bounty. Friends of Jimmy Lindsey, the prize Oghter are exerting themselves to secure a pardon for him from the governor. They probably forget that there is ttill pending against him an indictment for prize figbting, which it will be the duty of the county attorney to push as soon as he gets out. They had better let him serve his time out. The anti-prize fight bill, which was introduced in the house Wednesday, passed the house and senate Thursday, was signed by the speaker and presi dent of the senate at 2:30 and became a law by the signature of the president at 4:33 Friday afternoon. The bill was just three minutes before the senate. It would be hard to beat that record. Toe unfinished Iowa soldiers' monu ment is daily becoming an object of contention. The manifest fact that Us plan of construction and the medal lions placed upon it was conducted on the basis of favoritism and not of he roic conduct or achievements has been the cause of a great ruction in soldier circles throughout the state. The whole thing was a scandal and a shame. ADOLrn Hichter of Salt Lake, a mining speculator and expert, who has recently made an investigation of the mines at Mercur and tells a waiting liblic that the Cripple Creek mines cannot be classed with those at Mer cur. In fact, the world has never seen such fabulous wealth as is soon to be brought to light in those mountains. If we believe half be says, the goldites will soon reject that metal as a reliable standard of value. The goldbngs are making a great ado over the fact that the alleged "pop ular" loan was a success. The fact is that nearly all the bids were from bankers and money loaners. There was not one private citizen in the whole lot of bidders, and why it should be a subiect of congratulation to that class of people is somewhat of a mys tery. It is presumed that they are crlad to see each other shell out their o hoarded shekels. J. Sterling Morton isn't flying his "reform" kite so high since Sena tor Vest gave him such a neat dressing down the other day. Imagine Sterling marching in front of the white house, awincine his golden censer and shout ing "Glory, glory unto Grover, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords" the man of whom he said a few years ago that "amone ward bummers he is a states man, and among statesmen he is a ward bummer." Toe senate having passed a resolu tion requesting Spain to grant belliger ent, rlahts to the Cuban rebels, that government has instructed its minister . a 1 . 1 at Washington to stare mat sucn nas been the policy of Gen. Campos, and it will continue to be the policy of the new general as long as the rebels themselves recognize the principles of civilized warfare. They must, how ever, stop burning the property of non combatants. No doubt the latter de mand will not be complied with, be cause it is as much the right of the rebels to stop sugar making by burning the cane as it was that of the govern ment in the late cival war to free the slaves of the southern people. War is not humane, it. is civilized savagery, and permits combatants to injure each other in the most vital points. AN ULTIMATUM.

It could be easih done, and we propose shortly to show by evidence collected from perfectly unprejudiced sources that even now the process has begun, and is proceed ing at a rate that will astonish many people, and probablv make this coun trv regret that it did not at an earlier staee fashion its monetary policy on principles of fnendlfriess to other na tions instead of on a bads of short sighted selfishness. The above was not written for the eve of Americans, but it furnishes food for considerable thought. The house of representatives have had quite a discussion over some items in the District of Columbia appropria tion bill taking money for certain sectarian charities which have for years been supported by the govern ment. Mr. Ilaiuer of Nebraska had the courage to move to eliminate sev eral of these items from the bill, and he is entitled to credit for the move he made. Those who are aquainted with these institution acree that they are little else than leeches upon the public treasury and if kept up at all should be maintained by private instead of public charity. And, if they are en titled to public support the District tax-payers and not those of the whole country should support ihem. All or most of the denominations have re sorted to this sort of scheme to foster institutions in the District whose main support comes from the U. S. treasury, and that source of levenue should be cut of entirely. Good for Ilainer. "Wanted, at Once. Twenty-five good second-hand bicy cles. Will pay cash for them. ' Leiiniioff Bros. Flattsmonth, Neb. A Very Good Law . That the populist legislature of K01 vn tint, ult.nrretlipr ttnd is illus trated by the county depository law, whieli was nasetri that winter. As ott erated in Cass county duriiiK the past four years the county has saved the toi l.iwinp- sums, as shown bv tlit record: - r i 1S92 $ 1.C73.3G 1S03 4 OL'G.-JO 1891. e.tS7.20 :;oci. itt Total saving to the county 1 1. ill And this is not all. It has saved the county a biennial bank light, when it comes to electing a county treasurer. that is worth something considerable to the public. A letter written by John M. Thurston two years ago has just been republished, in which he said: The recent events, instead of bring ins me to believe in the single gold standard, have had quite the opposite result. For the worldat large toaban- donthe use of silver as money would be to greatly enhance the power of gold; to greatly diminish the volume of mon ey, and thereby the borrowing elaspt-s and the producing classes wt.uld be more at the mercy of the money hold ers than they ever have been before. The United States is a silver producing country, and I do not believe it can af- ord to let those nations not producing silver compel it to abandon silver 21s a money." John keeps right on voting the way re didn't shoot, whenever he gets a haiice to help the "single gold stand ard" by his vote in the senate. Most politicians are apt to be a little cross eyed. The government bond bidders were not disposed to bid any more than they could help and make their bids success ful, as if shown by the fact that an av erage of the successful bids was about 112, while the actual value of the bonds on the market w as 210. The bids made, therefore, were no evidence of a desire to help out the government. but only a disposition to pet the bonds as cheaply as possible in the competi tion. The senate Tuesday oidered our Julius Sterling Morton to proceed and purchase seeds and distribute them as lias benn the custom heretofore. This is the senate's answer to the allitera tive .secretary's appeal for economy. i. G. Vest is believt-d to be responsi ble for this freak of the senate ami r.n early fl"Od of remarks anent the paid Vest from Secretary Morton is looked for. The recent speech of U. S. Hall or Missouri is pointed to as an indication that the single gold standard is gaining advocates. Uosh ! Hall never was an honest advocate of bimetallism..; The fact is, Hall is not known to be a man of serious convictions on any subject. NKISKAMvA NEWx. Pierce is now agitating a curfew ordinance. Mrs. C. G. Johnson of Gothenburg has been declared insane. Auderson, the Norfolk harness dealer, ha? succumbed to the chattel mortgage. Kearney's celery growers have al ready contracted ?for fifty-live acres of the plant. Tho Union Pacific paid 82O,0C0 taxes into Kearney county's treasury the other day. Over 1,200 men participated in the Beemer wolf hunt, andthii teen wolves were run in at the death. The Ueemer State bank has declared a dividend of 10 per cent, after re serving $3, COO in the undivided profits account. J. 1 Tulleys of lied Cloud, grand custodian cf the secret woik of the Masonic order, is holding a school of instruction at Wahoo. . The Hastings city council has passed an ordinance to submit the question for voting $15,000 bonds for an electric light plant and $8,000 for water works extension. James Ilendricksori of Pelmont broke his leg while hauling wood. He rode a horse twenty-live miles to have the fracture reduced and is getting along all right. The society ladies of Hastings have made all necessary arrangements to give a grand leap year ball and ban quet Friday night. About eighty couples will participate. A farmers' institute will be held at Bancroft Thursday and Friday of this week, speakers being present from the state university. Much interest is be ing manifested. The latest gold discoveries in Ne braska are reported in Stanton county. In the meantime gold is becoming so plentifiul in the vicinity of Alma that the newspapers hesitate to accept it on subscription. The numerous friends of Terry Gass are eyeing that worthy gentleman with considerable suspicion. It seems that a certain young grass widow, living about eight mbes west of Capt. Wiles' farm, has been making frequent visits to this city, and each time she remembers Perry witli a basket of nice apples or some other delicacies. The latter, in return, gives the young grass widow ;i number of papers, con taining tender love stories and bits of romance. At least, this is the story told by one of Perry's friends. 1It li:trt ure Ktfrett'l. At the meeting of the Plattsmouth W. C. T.

Butler. It was a most gratifying success for Miss Terry and her friends . Miss Terry, in her solo, "Bel liacgio," from the opera of "Seunramide," carried with her the hearts of her audience. The Misses Dovey were quite popularly received in every number, and Mr. Adelmann, after his violin solo, "Fantasie Sue doise,'' was compelled to respond to the encore, follow jng with "Inter mezzio," from "Cavaleria llusticana.-" Omaha World-Herald.
