The blackest charge now made
against ex-Senator Pettigrew Is that
he has made money by fortunate in

Republicans are boasting of the half
billion of gold In the United States
treasury. That Is republican doctrine
to tax the people to their highest abil
ity to pay and lay the gold aside to
carry the next presidential election.
Cleveland or McKinley must be the

We take the liberty of urging the

kick Bryan out and run the demo

carried the election In 1J04.
Some of the strongest eastern repub
lican papers begin to think and write
for a change in the tariff instead of
taxing the people and paying subsidies.
One paper recommends "opening the
reciprocity sluicegates In the high tar
iff dam and let trade flow unobstructed
rather than pay subsidie3." There are
several republican congressmen who
are talking change in tariff.
It is really strange how people
change In their political opinions. Ten
years ago Cleveland and McKinley
stood on the opposite sides of almost
every political question then up for
settlement; now they stand together
on the same side. Cleveland stands
where he did and McKinley has gone
over to his side. It is not reform
that has carried him over, but it has
really been anti-reform that has car
ried backward. He has advanced two
paces to the rear. He condemned
Cleveland's position on the money
question, but now stands with him,
solid. He. condemned Imperialism and
the occupation of territory by force.
In one of his speeches in congress he
said: "We have no right in law or
morals to usurp that which belongs to
another, whether It be property or
We all know that the moneyed men
run the general government of this
country and yet they pay no more
taxes to support It than the common
laboring men. Unless they use liquor,
tobacco and imported goods they pay
not one cent. Then come down to
state, county and city taxes, it is near
ly as bad. The money on the asses
sor's roll this year in Lancaster county
is only about $40,000, while the money
deposited in banks is over J4.000.000.

Is the Work the British Doctors are
Doing at the Corner of 11th and N
Streets by Giving Their Services Free
of Charge and Thus Demonstrating
Their Ability to Cure Many Maladies
That are Called Incurable. .
A staff of eminent physicians and
surgeons from the British Medical In
stitute have, at the urgent solicitation
of a large number of patients under
their care in this country, established
a permanent branch of the Institute In
this city in the Sheldon block, corner
of 11th and N streets.
These eminent gentlemen have de
cided to give their services entirely
free for three months (medicine ex
cepted) to all invalids who call upon
them before September 8. These ser
vices consist not only of consultation,
examination and advice, but also of
all minor surgical operations.
The object in pursuing this course is
to become rapidly and personally ac
quainted with the sick and afflicted,
and under no conditions will any
charge whatever be made for any ser
vices rendered for three months to all
who call before September 8.
The doctors treat all forms of disease
and deformities and guarantee a cure
in every case they undertake. At the
interview a thorough examination is
made, and, if incurable, you are frank
ly and kindly told so; also advised
against spending your money for use
M'ale and female weakness, catarrh
'and catarrhal "deafness, also rupture,
goitre, cancer, all skin diseases and all
diseases of the rectum, are positively
cured by their new treatment.
The Chief Associate Surgeon of the
Institute is in personal charge.
Office hours, from 9 a. m. till 8 p. m.
No . Sunday hours.
Special Notice If you cannot call,
send stamp for question blank for
just as unjustly assessed as the money.
Every kind of property value should
be assessed and taxed according to
what it would sell for no matter
whether it is owned by rich men or
poor widows. But no, ten thousand
rich men are skipped where there is
one poor widow. Stock in corporations
should be taxed according to selling
value ,the same as farms. There are
more than six million dollars' worth
of property and obligations owned in
Lancaster county that is not taxed a
single cent. The republicans have
nominated many of the same assessors
to be re-elected next November and
others of the same stripe. If the tax
payers desire to exempt the rich from
paying their share of the taxes, they
should vote the straight republican
Many people, and preachers among
them, have concluded that the police
force of Lincoln is too small. As long
as a majority of the people vote for
saloons and other schools of crime
those who vote that way ought not to
complain of the fruit. If I plant crab
apple trees I ought to be satisfied with
that kind of fruit. We plant pauper
ism and crime and then expect our
police to reap soberness, virtue and
honor. One single policeman would
lessen the crime half if all the church
members would vote for cleaning up
the city. Wide open cities are most
popular among voters.

Sentiment and respect have changed
in relation to marriage and single life
in the last fifty years. We remem
ber the time when it was considered
almost a disgrace for a girl not to
marry before she was twenty-five.
And a male human was not considered
more than half human who did not
marry before he was thirty. Now the
single blessedness livers are as much
respected as the double blessedness
livers according to what they do.
There are many cases where they are
the mainstay of a whole neighbor
hood. They have built beautiful
homes and in most cases their homes
are the homes of many a wild rela
tive. The birds and the fawns are in
structed and polished. We would not
advise any man, young or old, to
marry a woman who smokes, chews,
drinks, gambles or spends her even

The thing that differentiates Ameri

one of the men was the most success
ful fisherman in that part of the coun
try and the Indian replied: "Oh, that
fellow there. He can catch fish any
where alongside of the road wherever
he goes " An Englishman could not
possibly see any sort of a joke in such
a statement as that. He would look
at the man making it with profound
afitonFhment and that would be all.

BATTLING AGAINST CANCER,
Views of am BnsrliaU Paonstolaa sa
The tragic ending of the tragic life
of the Empresd Frederick has given a
new meaning to the pathetic appeal
which King Edward made to English
medical men to spare no effort to com
bat "that other terrible disease can
cer' .writes the London correspondent
of the New York Evening Post. Sir
James Paget, the famous English phy
sician, once declared that "every one
would have cancer if only he lived
long enough," and that must, I sup
pose, be accepted as a fact. But it is
evident from the medical comments of
rthe week that there is no ground for
asserting that the disease is on the in
crease in this country. An English
physician, who speaks With authority,
assures me, on the contrary, that, al
though the essential nature of the dis
ease has so far baffled research, con
siderable progrers can be recorded dur
ing the past t . o decades. In some
notes he has sent me he says: .
"Just as In the case of consumption,
cancer was believed to be mainly due
to some inherited fault of constitution,
and It need hardly be said that this
hypothesis engendered a despairing
frame of mind in the practitioner as
well as the patient. The present gen
eral belief throughout the British med
ical profession, in support of which
numerous facts might be adduced, is
that the disease is at first entirely local
or limited, and in all probability the
result of the growth of some specific
micro organism. The constitution may
possibly have some influence it is a
question of relative suitability of soil
and seed but it would not appear to
be so nearly bo Important a factor as
in some other parasitic diseases tuber
culosis, for example. The conclusion
follows that if the disease is recognized
early enough and is in some accessible
part; from which it can be removed
freely by the surgeon, there should be
a fair chance that it may never recur;
and modern improvements in diagnosis
and methods of operation have actu
ally accomplished this In large num
bers of cases. If, however, precious
time is wasted by hesitating or tem
porizing, or by submitting to the treat
ment of quacks, the malignant growth
not only destroys the part It has first
attacked, but particles are carried to
neighboring glands or to Internal or
gans, just as the seeds of a noxious
weed may be scattered over the whole
"Assuming this view to be correct,
the directions in which Improvement
may be looked for are two in the first
place, the recognition of the parasite,
and, secondly.las is now being done in
the case of tuberculosis, plague, mala
ria and many other, diseases, the at
tainment of knowledge concerning Its
life history and the conditions which
favor Its growth.

clares he will be able to demonstrate
the practicability of talking through
the air between widely separated
places. With small instruments of his
own making he has succeeded In talk

These experiments have satisfied the
Inventor that there Is no obstacle In
long distance telephoning, for his in

Not only wireless telephoning be
tween far separated cities is possible,
according to Dr. Pratt, but communi
cation may be readily had with mov

have its own circuits without wires.
For long distance telephoning or tele

- Wheat Paid Church Debts.
The Evangelical church at Industry,
In the northern part of the county, has
Just paid off its church debt with a
crop of wheat says an Abilene (Kan.)
dispatch to the New York Times. Last
autumn the pastor, the Rev. Mr. Bru
ner, together with a number of the
leading members, rented 40 acres of
ground near the church house. The
work of seeding and the seed grain
were contributed. The yield was 950
bushels, of which one-third was paid
for rent, and the remainder has just
been sold for enough to pay the $350
mortgage on the church.
