The time allowed for the work teinp limited, and the peneral confusion incident toan entire ehanire of management, has resulted in the present issue einsr considerablv below the usual standard, hut w e hope that in the future to make up for present deticiencies. As to the future policy of the paper it w ill continue as in the past, tony the flair of democracy and to advocate the principles of that party. It will Ite our earnest endeavor In each week present the news in a truthful, con vise manner, and to publish facts on matters of interest to our readers and to treat everybody fairly. Personally, the publishers do not need an introduction to the people of Plattsniouth and Cass county. Ix.th bavin? resided here nearly all of their lives, and .eiiip personally acquainted wiin nearly all the readers of the paper. We expect to obtain a share t.f your newspaper patronage, and will honestly and consistently seek to de serve the same. Ckokoe 11. Mann. W. K.. From the reports w hich have come in from over the state, State Superin tendent Fowler lielieves that the es tablishment of adjunct districts nn der the free hijrli school attendance law was defeated in every county in the state. The matter was brought up at the recent school elections. It seems that the people do not gener ally understand the new law. In many cases the result was because of technical mistakes by the officers of the school Imards. These adjunct dis tricts comprise all of the county not included in the high school district. The vote taken was on the establish ment of the district. Many school men think that the new plan will con tinue to fail even after the people come to understand it. because it im poses a slight additional tax on the di.stiicts. This will make it uiipodu- lar. Superintendent Fowler has writ ten a circular letter to every county suj-ti inteiiil.'nt in the state, asking for information as to the reason for the opposition to the law, and request in: their opinions as to whether the question should be submitted again next June, and if so what kind of campaign should ie waged to insure its success.

VWien .senator Foraker introduced Senator Manna as permanent chair man of the Ohio republican state con vention he described him to the dele gates as a man who knew his busi ness and how to attend to it.' There can be no question of Senator Ilanna's knowledge f his business, it is his business to run the republican party in the interests of syndicated monop olies or this country. He was placed in public life to attend to this busi ness, lie is strictly attending to it. It is t be commonly observed in this wicked world of ours that those who boast at all boast of that thej have least of. The rich man, though never so purse proud, does not, as a rule, go around bragging about his money, albeit he may sometimes make a vulger display of its power and uses. The lady who talks overmuch of her virtue will bear watching. Vanity may sustain a bully in a corner, but ve men leave their valor to take itself as occasion requires. The board of county commissioners while sitting as a lioard of equaliza tion, has discovered that the law de fining the powers of the lioard t( change assessments as returned by the assessors limits their action to a very nai row scope, anil is sadly in need of amendment or alteration For in stance, the total assessed valuation of the county as returned by the assessors can not be materially disturbed, ami siiouiu any large increase in any as sessment I' deemed equitable a corre sponding decrease must la made else where, in order that the total may not be affected. Again, should any assess ment be found too low. and such faet be known to the members of the board, they are powerless to make any change in such assessment unless the matter is brought to their ollicial notice by complaint. In-ing made by some citizen or tax-payer. The entire plan of levying and collecting taxes in this state is faulty, and apparently the legislatures which have sought to give the people relief were unable to devise a more equitable or better plan, although one is sadlv needed. Tiie new fish and game law. passed at the last session of the legislature, is developing into a gigantic farce. Heyond providing places for a half dozen political parasites to fasten themselves upon the state treasury to the extent of several thousand dollars per year for salaries, it is doubtful if any attention whatever will be paid to the enforcement of the new law. A license which costs 1 per year is one of the requirements before a per son can legally catch lish in a county of which he is not a resident, and the county clerk is the officer authorized to issue such license. The law went into effect July 1st. but thus far no licenses can be procured. It has: long been the custom when a new paper is established, or when a c.iange of publishers takes nlaee. for the new or incoming editor to an nounce that he "has come to stnv " In the case of the present publishers of the Journal, both of whom have been residents of Plattsmouth and Cass county tor in re than thirtv years, such an announcement would appear superfluous, but the fact re mains that thev have uiidmr.f erilv j 'cotne to stay.

Curious, isn't it, that those foreign countries are unable to realize the ad vantage it will be to them to admit our products free, while we put a pro- mom e tariii on what they have to sell? But these foreiiriieis riKv:iv were dense. The county commissioners have de cided that hereafter the pay of asses sors will not be as extensive as form erly. A plan has been agreed upon by oieii a eeiiaill sum Will he nnrmr- lonedtoeach ward and precinct for doing the work and if the assessor cares to undertake the work for this sum he can go ahead, and if not he can. resign and the board will appoint some one else who will accept the work for the amount agreed upon. Hereto fore the assessors have tiled claims for as high an amount as the board would allow, based on the rate of $i per day of eight hours, for the time actually employed in doing the work, which has resulted in claims whieh people consider excessive. many Every young man in town would be hunting up a license and a minister if he knew how beautifully and inexpen sively the Sattler Furniture f'o ejm furnish a homp for him. Washington, July 1, 1101. Secretary fiage is chafing under the muzzle that has been put upon him by the admin ist rat ion, and some predict it will re suit in his resignation. Since turning over to the diplomatic branch of the government with a hope that the tar iff war witli Russia, into whicli the secretary's blundering construction of the law plunged the country, the pres ident informed the secretary that he must cease talking for publication about his acts which led to the tariff war. This Mr. Gage regards as double reflection on his Judgment, but whether he will take it so seriously as to resign is not yet apparent. Those best informed seem to believe that the tanking interests which placed Mr Gage in charge of the financial branch of affairs will intervene, if necessary, to prevent his resignation, as they dc not wish to take tiny chances with new man. The republican fight over controling the pension bureau is growing sensa tional. Commissioner Evans has made a statement his first public resist ance to the demand for his removal that breathes defiance between the lines, and may be considered a dare to Mr. McKinlev to redeem the written promise of the republican national committee to Gen. Daniel E. Sickles duiiug the campaign last year, that Evans would not be continued at the head of the pension bureau during this administration, if Mr. McKinlev were re-elected. Mr. Evans intimates that in addi tion to the desire if the pension agents sharks to control the work of the pension bureau there are republican politicians who wish a change because they have not lieen allowed to dictate in defiance of law appointments and promotions in the bureau. This state ment of Mr. Evans would lie ' hot stuff" in much colder weather than that w hich Washington is now passing through, and his friends say he has unlimited ammunition for more of it. and, having become tired of being abused for doing his duty and standing between the treasury and a ring of pension looters, he will use it without regard to who is hit if the fight against him is kept up. Democrats are inter ested spectators of this fight. Gen. Sickles, who is a leader on the anti- Evans side, was a McKinlev stumper both in l9j and 11HX, and Corioral Tanner, who seems to oe second in command, who was summarily kicked out of the office of pension commis sioner by the late i 'resident Harrison for doing the very thing for which Evans lias been fought for not doing. The opinion is increasing among democrats that the republican talk of revising the tariff so as to hit trust- controlled articles is nothing more than a vote-making bluff. In many congressional districts in the west and middle-west there is a strong senti ment among republican voter? against trusts. It is to keep this vote from being lost to the party that tariff re vision talk was begun, and is expected that a considerable number of re publican congressmen from that sec tion will make speeches during the corning session in favor of taking the tariff off trust-controlled articles, not because they expect or really desire legislation along that line.but because the speeches will make good campaign documents in next year's congressional fight. It seems that Secretary Gage's or der imposing a countervailing duty on Italian sugar, on the suspicion that Italy was paying an export bounty on sugar, was as big a blunder as that he made about Russian sugar. The Ital ian government has officially informed this government that it does not pay a bounty on sugar exported, just as Russia did. Matters of this sort are tfo important and far-reaching in their effect to lie determined upon without absolute knowledge of all the facts. Within a few days probably this week the advisory headquarters of Ohio republicans will be established in the Canton home of Mr. McKinley, and the advisor-iu-chief will be no less t han Mr. McKinley himself . Although there is no national issue in the Ohio cani(iaign this year, unless the election of a legislature to elect Senator Fora ker's successor can be considered such, Mr. McKinley is very anxious that the republicans shall win, not that he would grieve to see Foraker lose his seat, but because of its moral effect on the congressional campaign next year. Asa shrewd politician he rec ognizes that unless the republicans x can retain control of congress many of his plans concerning the Philip- pines will be upset, as he has no idea that all those plans can be put into effect through legislation by the pres ent congress.
