DEMOCRATS TO BLAME.
A Starving Republican Lays All
His Troubles at Their Door.
A poor man, a republican, one
of the howling, rantanl-rous kind,
called on a friend in this city the
other evening, a pop, one of the
shouting calamity-howling kind.
The republican looked forlorn,
cs.re worn and poverty stricken,
and boa- no evidence of having
been struck by any of John Sher
man's waves of prosperity for at
least a quarter of a century.
He was out of money and out of
work; the fire had gone out in the
the scanty homo and the little
stomachs were sufferings of hun
ger. - . ;.
.' He had no overcoat and had
come .to ask his friend if lie. had
.. an old pne to give' him, or any
other old c?st. off clothing. Or did
. he know of anyone who had' any
old clothes' to give away;';. ;
He was disconsolate and ' des
perate and had come to his friend
for advice. ' What should lie do?
"Keep right on voting, the re
publican ' ticket,'-' replied the un
feeling : pop.- '. "(ipld standard,
money good in Yurrup, the destruc
tion cf the silver dollatylow prices,,
no work,, business paralyzed,. sta'rv ..

been voting for; take your medi

"I know we have never agreed
on politics," said the. republi
can, '' "and :' you ' have for
years been preaching this
stuil . to me, but d - n the demo
crats! They are the fellows' who
have caused the trouble. If the
A republicans had been in power the
'past three 'year's we would not now f
have such hard times." -

Another Evidence of Prosperity.
The Nebraska Savings and Ex
change bank, of Omaha, closed its
doors Monday. The directors
on Saturday adopted the follow-
ing: ' .
Whereas, The long continued ;
business depression throughout the I
country, and especially in the state
of Nebraska, has made it difficult
to realize satisfactory profits in
business, and as we do nut consid
er it sufficiently remunerative as to
profits in future to continue the
business of ihis bank, therefore be
Resolved, By the board ol di
rectors of the Nebraska Savings
and Exchange bank, that we now
voluntarily take the necessary steps
to wind up the affairs of this bank
as soon as practicable.
Thus the gold standard, "sound
money" and "the best banking
system the world ever saw": is; dc:
souring, the very class of men
whom it. was calculated to : benefit.
.The failure aggregates $150:000.
President Hush announces that the
institution .stood up as . long as it
could, but - business continued so
poor, w ith no prospect of .'immedi
ate Improvement ' in view the di
rectors concluded to go into, "vol
untary liquidation."- As. usual, the
assets' ' are-sufficient J ) . to pay. otf
the depositors in full. The great
er portion of the., assets consists of
real estate and mortgages, which
require a little life in business to
make them worth their face value.
Let them rest easy. When John
Sherman's wave of prosperity ar
rives -which was to immediately
follow the destruction of the silver
dollar and the adoption of the gold
standard "sound money" theory
they may see "a little life in busi
ness." Since all things come to
those who .wait, let them, possess
their : soul in patience. Mean
while tuey should not kick; they
got what they voted for.
John T. Dorgan has donated a
car of coai for the benefit of the
city. Next. .

ing near Raymond, this county,
accidentally killed his little nine-year-old
daughter, Ethel, Wednes

Tllc ani;iiai being about to get
. Nichols nicked up a stick
of wood and threw it at the colt,
missing his mark and striking the
little girl about two inches below
Uhe right ear, when the child fell to
the ground and died instantly. The
missle struck over the pneumogas
trie nerve, which leads to the lungs
and heart and is supposed that the
shock was sufficient to kill her.

came . to her death by reason of a
wound caused by a stick thrown by
Arthur 1 1. Nichols at a colt, mis
sing which it hit . the .deceased,:
causing her. death. , We' further
find that, no blame attaches to
