Should Never Hang ,
A man should never hang up his coat by the loop
made for that purpose if he can avoid it; if hung in
that way sooner or later it will sag out of shape.
Then again, they say we spend one-third of. our life
in bed. If that's the case we must spend the other
two-thirds with our clothes on, so the wearing part has
the best end of the bargain. Isn't that good proof
. that the wearing qualities of your clothing be more
carefully looked after. If the quality of the cloth is
all right the hanging part as a rule is all right, When
you buy a suit of clothes from The Nebraska you can
rest assured the quality, style and fit is correct, it
wouldn't be Nebraska Clothing if it wasn't. We are
showing some men's suits of all wool diagonal serge,
fast colors sack style, satin piped, perfect fitting and
splendidly trimmed, good looker, good wearer, good
value for $6.50. If you want to order this suit through
our mail order department, order suit No. 216 say

Didn't Have Bens Enough to
Charge It.RularrfUte.,
The republican press of this state is
still wailing over the hard lot of the
poor insurance companies "held up" by
Palm. The only thing about Palm,
aside from writing letters that would in
criminate himself as well as Innocent
parties is that be didn't have sense
enough to charge the regular rates for
the work that he did. To find out what
the examiners in other states charged
for this work, letters have been sent to
the auditors or insurance commissioners
of the various stales. The first reply
that comes to hand is as follows:
Topeka, Kaa..Feb. ISOO.-Uenlyluir to
yours of recent date in rifereuce to the
amount of charuos uirainst Insurance
companies where . examinations are
made by this department, I will say
that our statute provides that an in
surance company shall pay the expenses
of such an examination of its ttssets.
The statute clearly intends, it it intends
nuy thing, that the clian are to go to
examiners for making the examination.
lhln department nas Instructed in all
caxes that the examiners charge a fee of

THE ENEMY AGAIN DRIVEN OUT. do8!notoa b tha President to repre
sent him In the archipelago. The
speculation regarding the duties ot
this commission and tho authority It
will have in the colonial government
are set at rest by the publication oi
the order issued by the President to
the secretary of state. It will be
noted that the military government of
the Islands under Ooneral Otis will be
continued without interference until
Congress makes other provisions and
that the commission's powers, while
important, are very largely advisory.
The order says:
"In the performance of this duty
tho commissioners are enjoined to meet
at tho earliest possible day In the olty
of Manila and to announce by a public
proclamation their presence and the
mission Intrusted to them, carefully
setting forth that, while the military
government already proclaimed Is to
be maintained and continued so long as
necessity may require, efforts will be
made to alleviate the burdens of taxa
tion, to establish industrial and com
merolal prosperity and to provide for
the safety of persons and of property
by such means as may bo found oon
duclve of these end
"Tbe commissioners will endeavor,
without interference with the mill
tary authorities of the United States
now la control of tho Philippines, to
ascertain what amelioration la the
condition of the Inhabitants and what
improvements in publlo order may be
practicable, and for this purpose they '
will study attentively the existing
social and political state of the vari
ous populations, practically as regards
the tonus of local irovernment. the
Manila, March 8 Tho engagement
of yesterday In wuloh thirty rebels
were killed near tho reservoir, was
renewed this inornlncr. After the
Insurgents had been Urlvon off last
night from In front of Mariqulnao
they came back 500 strong and cut oil
a company of tho First Nebraska vol
unteers. This morning Qonoral Halo sent
out three companies of tho Nebraska
regiment and two companies of the
Second Oregon to dislodge them. Tbe
enemy, who were holding a strong po
sition among the locks, tired excellent
volleys at the advancing Americans,
but the latter, by a flank movement,
drove tho Filipinos over the hills. No
sooner was this fight well under way
than tho insurgents to the south of
the waterworks, knowing that the
forces there had been weakened by
loading troops to Mariqulnao, at
tacked the water works In tho rear. :

The flro was heavy and our small

Washingtoic, March a President
MoKlnley bas decided not to avail
himself of tho authority granted by
the compromise army bill, to organize
a provincial army of 85,000 volunteers.
After consulting with officials of the
war department the President has de
cided that, in view of the present
favorable outlook In Cuba and the
prospect of the complete suppression
of the Philippine insurrection at an
early day, it will not be necessary,
after the present volunteer forces have
been mustered out, to have more than
the OS.t'OO men allowed for tbe regular
array until July 1, 1901.
It is also his purpose to expedite the
withdrawal of volunteors from Cuba
and the Philippines as rapidly as pos
sible, and muster them out of the
service. All of the volunteers are
to be brouorht home from Cuba
without delay, and those In tho Phil-
Ipplnes will bo brought home as soon
as enough regulars can be sent out to
take their places,
The President will have authority
under the law to appoint volunteer
general officers and volunteer staff
officers In sufficient number for the
69,000 regulars. If subsequent devel
opments show tho necessity for mora
men the President will then exerulsa
his power to enlist all or part of tht
S3, 000.
Under any circumstances the Pros
(dent will not enlist tho 85,000 volun
teers until after the regular army ha
been Increased to 65,000 men, and then
only when they are absolutely necessary.

jKrrBso Citv, Mo., March 8. The
House got back to its old familiar
wrangle over the clerical force this
morning and fought it out with Its
usual spirit.
One could hear a pin drop as Popa
of Cole, chairman or the special com
mittee appointed to Investigate tha
clerical force, arose in his place and
sent to tho desk the report : of tha
committee. It provided for the rein
statement of four stenographers who
were discharged by the chief clerk.
Lon Luther of Scdalln and J. C Duval
of Richmond were reinstated because
necessary. Three others were rein
stated because the members who rec
ommended them had no other patron
age. Th committee recommended
that th enrolling clerk drop three,
tbe doorkeeper three and the engross
ing clerk eight of those who had been
retained after the first dischargea un
der the Dozell resolution.
Pope said the committee had care
fully considered Us work and found
much difficulty because members, as a
rule, elected to retain those they had
on the ohlef clerk's force. They found
that the chief clerk had discharged
those of his force who were recom
mended by the two members who
died. These were reinstated. Tha
committee also reinstated Lou Luther
aud J. C. Duval, two members dis
charged by the chief clerk. The four
typewriters were reinstated because
they were needed. The doorkeeper
had agreed to drop two and th en
