, There will probably be few changes in
tho state iaetitationa when the chang
of administration occurs. The heads of
these institutions are appointees of Gov.
Holcorab and the employes are in sym
pathy with the new order of things. The
new state officers are deluged with appli
cations for the few places at the disposal
of eah, and there promises to be a right
arnest rivalry for every place at th
disposal of the new regime, even down
. to the most insignificant appointment
by the legislature, lue chief rivalry ap
pears to he over the three secretary
ships of the state board of transporta
tion. These secretaries are appointed
by the state board of transportation.
The law provides that the three secre
taries shall be from different political
parties. Heretoiore tnan nas oeen one
republicanone democrat and one pop
ulist. After the new state board takes
. control there will probably be one derao
crat, one populist and one free silver re
1 It is conceded that James C. Dahlman,
Vlate chairman of the democratic state
committee, will be the democratic mem-
ber, and that Hon. Gilbert L. Laws, late
i chairman of the Nebraska bimetallic
f league, will be the free silver republican
member, i or the third place the can
didates thus far mentioned are Judge
Wheeler of Polk, T. H. Tibbies of Cum-
iig, Hon, I. A. Sheridan of Red Willow,
Fred Miller of this city, is. W. Beardsley
of Cheney and Kessler of Burt.
-; There were a number of democrats
. who were anxious to receive recognition
lor the democratic corner of the secre
taryship, but they all retired from the
field as soon as it became known that
Dablman was a candidate. It is under-
at6od that the appointment of demo
crats under the new state officers will be
regulated by the selection! of the demo
cratic state central committee.
For the Care of Piles
Is not only intensely painful, danger-
ouato nte ana very expensive, but in the
light of modern medical research and
since the discovery of the Pyramid Pile
Cure a surgical operation is wholly un
necessary. 11 you have any doubt - on
thia point kindly read the following let
ters from people who know that our
claims regarding the merits of the Pyra
mid Pile Cure are borne out by the facts.
From N. A. Stall, Ridge Road, Niagra
Co., N. Y: I received your Pyramid Pile
Cure and tested it last night. It did me
more good than anything I have aver
found yet, and remember thia waa the
result of one night's treatment only.
From Peon W. Arnett, Batesville, Ark:
Gentlemen: Your Pyramid Pile Cure
has done me ao much good In ao ahort a
time that my son-in-law, Capt. T. J.
Klein, of Fort Smith, Ark., has written
me for your address as ha wishes to try
From A. E. Townsend, Benville, Ind:
I have been ao much benefitted by the
Pyramid Pile Cure that I enclose fl for
which please send a package which I wish
to give to a friend of mine who suffers
very much from piles.
From John H. Wright, Clinton, De Witt
u., ills: l am so well pleased with the
Pyramid Pile Cure that I think it but
right to drop you a few lines to inform
you its effects have been all that I could
ask or wish.
From P. A. Bruton, Llano, Tex: Gen
tlemen: The Pyramid PileCure has done
so much good for me that I will say for
the benefit of others that after using it
only two days 1 am better than 1 have
been for months.
The Pyramid Pile Cure is prepared by
The Pyramid Drug Co., of Albion, Mich..
and it is truly a wonderful remedy for all
forms of piles. So great has been the
number of testimonial letters received by
them from all parte of the country that
they nave decided to publish each week
a number of such letters and never use
the same letter twice, but only fresh
letters will be published.
All druggists recommend the ryramid

Now Holding a Session in Chicago, With
a Good Attendance
Chicago, 111., Nov. 14. Free thinkers
from all over the United States and from
England were present at Washington
hall last night at the annual congress of
the American Secular nnion and Free
Thought federation. r
I be meeting was called to order
shortly after 10 o'clock by Samuel P.
Putnam of Chicago, president of the
union and federation. Addresses were
deliverod by Mr. Putnam, George W.
Foote, Charles Watts, Judge C. B. Waite
and Mrs. M. A. Freeman. President Put
nam, in his address, said:
"Our American republic in its begin
ning was a powerful outburst of free
dom, and yet today in this republic we
are threatened witn tyranny and super
stition. itisourpiace to pat tne re
public on its original foundations, to
anchor it to principles of the declaration
of independence. We are repeating the
errors of the past. What we oppose is
not religion in itseii, out the union of re
ligion with the states. The exemption
of church property from taxation, the
Bible in the schools, the enforcement of
Sabbath laws, these are instances of the
degeneration of the government.
A great conflict is before us. A vast
number of petitions are circulating
throughout the country in behalf of this
Christian movement. The issue is direct
and we must meet it by every means in
our power. All differences are lost in
thia one tremendous and vital question.
we must worn lor tne rights of man: to
give to each human being the same rights
wnich we claim lor ourselves. We labor
not to divide, but to unite the human
race. There can be no union excent bv
equality of rights. We do not war upon
religion. Let religion be free, is what we
ask. Let it depend upon reason, upon
science, upon education, but not upon
the aword of the state."
At the afternoon session of the con
gress addresses were delivered by
Charles C. Moore of Kentucky and
Francis Woodbury of Washington
inere was a public meeting in the even
ing. The speakers were M. Florence
Johnson of Massachusetts, Pearl W.
Gear of Oregon and Samuel C. Putnam,
president of tne congress.

A Kidnapping'Tbat Ended in the Re-unit
ing of Two Brothers. '
Ft. Scott, Kas., , Nov. 14. James
Campbell, the Sandwich islands million
aire sugar grower, who was kidnapped a
tew montns ago at Han Francisco and
held for a $50,000 ransom, is expected
here soon to visit his brother, George
Lampoeii. x ney nave not met since they
separated in Londonderry, Ireland, forty-seven
years ago. Each was lost to
the other until recently, when they were
reunited by meanB 01 items in the news
ueorge Uarapbell is one of the wealth
lest stock men m this country and lives
on his big ranch twenty-five miles west
of here. A few days after the kidnap
ping the ranchman read the details of
the affair and he wrote the Sandwich
island man. No answer came and the
ranchman had about decided to abandon
the idea of his relationship to the mil
lionaire when one day a roughly dressed
stranger, who professed to be traversing
the continent on foot, stopped at the
house. Campbell afterward recalled that
the man wore white cuffs and silk hose
uuder his apparently travel stained
clothing. Later it developed that the
visitor was a detective from San Fran
cisco. Two weeks later Campbell re
ceived a letter from the sugar millionaire
and further correspondence has resulted
in arrangements for the two brothers to
meet at the rachman s home here soon.
