D., Nov. 9, Senator Pettigrew opened the campaign of 1900 tonight by announcement and an ad dress to the largest audience ever gath ered in the city. It was announced as the beginning of the bimetallic fight of four years hence and proved to be the sensation of the fall. 1 be senator stated that he would render McKinley every aid possible for him to demonstrate that the tariff was what ailed the country, but wanted to put bimseli on record by saying tnat he would resist every sec tion of a tariff bill that provided for tariff on any article controlled by a trust. This created a sensation. The Old Llmbtwlater. Office of thk Bloated Plow Holder Piloek, Neb., Nov. 6.

A Farmer s Vision on Seeing Politically Pictured Old Glory. Editor Post: A week ago I saw in Lincoln some United States flags with the pictures of McKinley and Hobart on them. Yesterday I could see a good many of these flags, not only on the streets but in nearly every window of the state Capitol. If a boy of a collem would draw a Eicture on a United States flag and ex ibit it, people would get angry and de mand that the culprit should be pun ished for desecrating and insulting the American flag. Here is a political party which soils the United States flag with two pictures and exhibits them not only in the public streets, but even in the Cap itol, jnst like an auction flag, as a kind of an advertisement for its candidates. Such a disgraceful insult was never be fore performed to any flag. Every thinking man must know that the exhibition of these McKinley flags has a purpose. It is to make the peo ple acquained with its dictators, and with this they follow the example of former foreign usurpers. I remember that a few years after his election as president of the France, Louis Napoleou put his picture on the French coins, and after the people were used to this picture, the political revolution followed, whereby he usurped the crown as emperor. The same was done, I believe, by the Roman Caesar, but never liefore did any usurper dare to put his picture on a flag, and I hardly believe that even an European monarch would dare to do it. It is not a secret any longer that a conspiracy exists in these states for establishing a monarchy, and the des perate measures which the money power used in this campaign and the different declarations that the money power would not peaceably submit if the peo ple should be victorious in this election, must have removed the last doubt about it. The money power knows well enough that it is not possible to suppress and plunder the people very much longer, as they have done until now, but they are determined to maintain their power un der all circumstances, even b.r brutal force, and McKinley's first term as presi dent will be used to make the necessary preparations for this purpose. The new McKinley conspirators' flag is the first step. Others will, be the in creasing of the regular army and police and Pinkertons will follow after the in auguration. Will this eople look peaceably at it? Fekd Schweizer. Woodlawn, Nov. 8, 1896. ONE DISTRICT JUDGESHIP. Report That the Coming Legislature Will Abolish it Here. Judge Tuttle is authority for the as sertion that a bill is likely to be introduc ed at the next session of the legislature to cut down the number of district judges in this county from three to one. He did not intimate where such a meas ure is likely to originate, except that it will come from local business men and pop ulists. When it was suggested to Judge Tuttle that any such law passed at the next session conld not curtail the num ber of judges until the expiration of the term for which the present judges were elected, the judge gave it quite emphati cally as his opinion as a lawyer that either of the judgeships could be obolish ed at once and that either of the judges now Berving could legally have his pay stopped at once. The measure to cur tail the number of judges, if such measure is proposed, will be pushed on the ground that there is not enough workvto keep three judges busy. ; LET US BE THANKFUL. Saved the State in Spite of Ingersoll atd Satan. Union, Nov. 8, 1896. To the Editor: Let us thank providence we have saved the state in spite of the devil and Bob, Intrersoll. I have no doubt that had we secured the election of Bryan, hell would have been to pay, but when prosperity came it would have come to stay. Under the present rulings all our present monoy circulation must be redeemed m gold demanded. This exposes the McKinley administration to great danger. This puts the nation in the banking business on a gold basis. Then if the basis is not as large as the circulating currency, bust is inevitable at some time. 1 should be pleased to nave some one inform me who conducts the political department of the state University at Lincoln? - s It seems that the students who go up from Cass and Utoe counties and attend trie institutions, come oacic on a pass with Instructions to vote tor McKinley and protection from their anarchist fathers who vote for Bryan, Holcomb and a state ticket in order to keep state government out of the control of rob bers and thieves. That institution, so far as its agricultural instruction is con cerned is a humbug and a farce from top to bottom. If their religion Is of the kind that sets father against son it is but little or no better. Their ' political theories of a gold standard and tariff protection, are yet disputed, unsettled questions which I hope the taxpayers of the state will not submit to have taught in the public schools. L. U. Todd. A Sad Accident. i Mrs. Patrick O'Donnell, wife of Road- master O'Donnell of the B. & M was killed this morning at 8 o'clock by the accidental discharge of a 32-calibre re volver in the bands of ber 16 year old son, William. When Patrick O'Donnell left his haDnv home at 2435 Q street, shortly before 8 to attend to bis usual duties in the B. & M. yards he little dreamed that in less than half an hour be would return to find bis wife lying Stone dead in a pool of blood upon the floor. Such are the facts, however, and thedetails as related by eye witnesses to the terrible affair are such as would move the stoutest heart. The family comprising husband, wife and nine children had just finished breakfast. Mr. O'Donnell had left for the city and the children were being ore- pared for school by the mother. William, the eldest son recently came into pos session of a revolver and was standing in the kitchen door examining the weap on which he supposed was unloaded. He attracted his mother's attention to its many fine points and in a careless manner commenced to snap it. Twice it made no response but the third time it went off and the ball lodged in his mother's head, entering between the noes and eye on the left side and passing !r ,. rnii nnding lodgment in ma-nun somewhat tack of the right mr. iae poor woman fell to the floor wun wood spirting from the wounds in large quantities. In just ten minutes she was dead. The children became panic stricken, but finally the neighbors were aroused by their screams and Dr. 3reen, a neigh bor, was summoned. When he reached the woman's side she nmt th m,A ni alt human skill. She was nlekarl nn &nrl carried into her bed room and Mr. 0 Donnell was immediately summoned from the B.AM. When the poor man arrived his feelings can better be im agined than described. After ascertain ing the cause he became frantic almost fremied and it was with great difficulty that the neighbors presentcould restrain him. The screams which continued to issue from the houss attracted n. 1 arm crowd, bnt none were allowed to enter. Mrs. O'Donnell was about thirty-seven years of age and was the mother of nine children. She was very devoted and gave up her whole time to their care. The loss which befalls tbem, to say nothing of the husband's grief, cannot be defined in words. William, the son who did thn ahnnrW is nearly beside himself and as the hour of going to press is still in a highly wrought up nervous oondition. . j Mr. and Mrs. O'Donnell were old resi dents of Lincoln and the former baa been in the employ of the B. & M. for a great many yerrs. A peculiar coincidence of the death is the fact that about six years ago Mrs. O'Donnell's mother was killed at tha corner of Twenty-flrst and Q street by Deing over b.v a team. Her father and mother are also said, to have met death by accident. no arrangements have m vat hoan made for the funeral.
