The Only Remedy in the World Except a
Surgical Operation, that Will Certainly
Cure Any Form of Pile.
The study of physicians, the experi
ments of chemists, the loudly advertised
pretentions of quacks, have been for
years expended in one direction; to find
a pile cure that would cure.
The results have been a number of
harmless and in most cases useless oint
ments, suppositories and even internal
remedies, which the public have weighed
intbe balance of experience and found
wanting; nearly all of them gave some
relief, but uothlng approachiug a rad
ical curt resulted from these prepara
tions. The remedy required is one which will
immediately stop the pain so severe In

A POPULIST VICTORY
Without Feat or Favor Give Credit to
Whom Credit is Due.
There baa been considerable discussion
as to whom belongs the credit of secur
ing the Omaha Indian supply depot. All
admit that Senator Allen was the origina
tor and chiet projector of the scheme.
That to him belongs all the credit of
getting the measure through the senate
and through the two conference commit
tees. It was also due to his influence
that the committee on Indian affairs
made a favorable recommendation.
In the house the matter was very dis
cretely handled. Credit has been given
to congressman Mercer for more than he
la entitled to. The first time the vote
came up in tha house, Mercer and Strode
were caugbt entirely off their guard.
There were only two republican votes in
addition to their own in favor of Omaha.
All the other vote in favor of Omaha
wer populist or democrat. The
Omaha clause was stricken out. Sen
ator Allen learned of the defeat and at
one began the work to have the con
ference committee decide in furor of
Omaha and thu aecur another vote on
the question In th houM. II waa sue

FIRST NATIONAL OF ORLEANS
Falls with Mora than $20,000 of State
Money on Deposit.
The first National bank of Orleans,
Nebraska, has met that great wave and
passed into history. As usual this waa
one of J. S. Bartley's favorite banks and
the state is by faObe heaviest loser.
The bank had been the recipient of state
money einee September 7, 1895. On
September 4th, 1895, the bank furnished
a depository bond in the sum of $25,
000 and under the provisions of the law
was entitled to receive $12,500- of state
money. The bond given was worthless
at the time and is worthless yet. It was
signed by John M. Burton who quali
fied for $50,000. Pat Gibbons for $30,
000, M. F. Burton for $12,000, J. 0.
Huff man for $10,000 and Geo. YV. Bur
ton, who did not qualify in any sum
whatever. From inquiry it is learned
that the state will not be able to recover
from any .of the bondsmen.
Hartley deposited the money gradually

bank allowed the check to be protested
tor non payment. Later on April 29
they paid the interest amounting to
$526.58. Treasurer Meserre bad made
demand on Bartley and the officers of
the bank tor toe money several times
but they either could not or wonld not
respond with the cash. The reckless
methods of Bartley are well illustrated
in the last deposit of $6500 when the
bank already had a small amount in
excess of the amount allowed by law.
Criticism cannot be too severe of the
board that approved the bond, with
three members of the Burton family and
two other parties as sureties. Such
acts ought to send the members of the
board to the assylum or Denitentiarv
The Penitentiary .
The state penitentiary under the iruid-
ing hand of Governor Holcomb and
Warden Leidigh has commenced for the
first time to be honestly managed.
Since its inception and construction the
republican boodlers hare used that in
stitution as a place through which much
boodle was to be obtained. The state
must have 'ost over two million dollars
through the penitentiary and probably
much more. Boss Stout had his arms
into the boodle as long as be could, and
then sold out. It was said at that time
the boss of the rennhltaan nnrt had
got away with over a million dollars.
