March 9, 1899 THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT. A MAN 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.

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 f 23 per day from the time they leave thiso'Iloe until they return, providing ho was at work while at the other end of the lino, excluding Sundays, and his expenses while there and going and com ing. 1 he basis for these charges Is this: J.

President MeBlnley. Infraction to the Men Rent to the fhlltpplnei, WAsniffOTON, March 8. Renewed Interest in tbe situation la the Philip. pines is awakened by the establish' meat at juunua oi me civilian mem bers of the commission which h&a haen 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. : Mutual I Their object was to cut off the pump-1 Ing station, but they did not succeed. The flro was heavy and our small loss was due solely to the bad marks manship of the Filipinos. The enemy's dead numbered twenty. Returns now in show five Americans woundod.

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.

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 rolling olerk three.
