SPIRIT OF THE STATE PRESS.
Old party papers are suspending in
. all parts of the state. Independent pa
pers are springing up in every direction.
The Plainview Independent of January
9 gives its town a good write up, which
ought to be appreciated by its citizens.
The subordinate Alliances of Walker
township Platte county, have organized
a township Alliance says the Platte
Blair Republican: "The farmers in
the neighborhood of Craig are discuss
ing the feasibility of putting in a flour
mill at that town."
Anselmo Stfi: "The south, room of
the school building has been furnished
by the Alliance, and is now being used
by that organization as a lodge room.
The Bartley Enterprise trots out its
. choicest rooster to crow over the fact
that the people and not the ring is at

Alliance Department, Logan County
Star, Gandy: "The boys, the real live,
progressive, wide-awake, get-lo-the-,
front, thinkers in the Reynolds district

The Anselmo (Custer county) Sun of
last week says: "The B. & M. has
stopped shipping supplies to this coun
ty tree. ; The time is just here when
such help is nost needed."'
Douglas correspondent in Unadilla
, Advertiser: "Our Alliance are making
arrangements to run their own butcher
shop next season and transact such
, other co-operative business as they may

Register, Aurora: Isn't it funny to
see how the democrats and republicans
love one another? Isu't it funnier to

law and at the same time yelling, V Re

The Loup City Northwestern now an
nounces itself the only republican paper
in Sherman county, the Times having
thrown off the mantle of republicanism
and joined the ranks of the Indepen

equality. . Y Y

Hamilton County Register: Ah alien
governor would be a suitable represent

methods adopted in Omaha on election
day, If Omaha is the state of Nebraska,
then let Boyd be governor. It would be

detailed account of the unjust manner
in which Marks Bros, of Omaha, saddle
and harness manufacturers, have deal
ings with their employes. The matter
having been considered at a special
meeting of the Platte county Alliance.
Neligh Tribune: Is n't it a farce to de
clare a man governor whose 'eligibiHiy
and election are both in doubt? Seat
him first and then go to work to ascer
tain if you have the right man? If the
codstitution makes this imperative,
then a school boy could make a better
The Hamilton county Register tells
of one just judge: "Judge Morris an
. nounces that he will conlirm sale in no
foreclosure cases where it is shown that
crop failure was a cause of non-pay-'
' meut. He says there may be no law for
' such a course, but there is no law
against it and he proposes to take it."
Atkinson Enterprise: Anything to
- beat the Alliance. There is a strong
likelihood of a fusion of republicans and
democrats in the state legislature this
winter. In aute-election days both the
old parties were deeply in sympathy
with the Alliance. Now they unite their
forces to defeat it. Indeed ic now trans
pires that the republican machinery in
Douglas county was used to further
Uoyd s chances of election.
Aurora Register: "At Blue Hill last
week, an own aunt of John Jacob Astor
was laid to rest in their cemetery, dying
in comparative poverty. Blue Hill is
rather a noted Nebraska town. A niece
of Andrew Jackson, though . getting
aged, takes in washing there, and Ed.

postmaster, is a nephew of Judge Hilton
who managed to absorb the widow and
most of the J. T. Stewart estate.",.

Albany, N. Y.. Jao. 20. The Demo
cratic joint caucus to nominate a
United States , senator was called tc
order in the assembly chamber shortly
after 5. Nominations being in order,
Speaker Sheen an said: '-The Demo
cratic party proposes to signalizj - the
great victory of November last by
nomination for senator in congress of a
leader of genius and courage, a states
man of breadth and capacity, a man
who more than any other contributed
to Democratic supremacy. When 'vic
tory seemed impossible, when de
feat stared us in the face, there
was one voice above all others
that penetrated the heart of the Ameri
can people, one who stood in the front
of the battle, heedless of personal or
political con8equencss,encooraging with
his presence and convincing with his
eloquent ' tongue the electorate of onr
land. It is only by rewarding men
who battle for Democratic principles
in darkness as well as in sunshine, that
our party deserves to succeed."
Atter other speeches Mr. Sheehan
moved Governor Hill's nomination by
acclamation, which was carried and
the caucus adjourned.
The Republicans nominated Senator
Evarts, also unanimously. v The Demo-,

Senator Paddock Bill to Be Consid

THE MEASURE'S PROVISIONS
And Frospeets for Its Adoptloa by the
Senate Ko Appropriatioa for Nebraska
Sufferers The Seigniorage Case la
the Supreme Court Congressional.
Washington, Jan. 20. Senator Pad
dock said that his bill creating a per
manent tariff commissioner would be
considered by the senate committee
this week. He believes the measure
will receive favorable . action by
the senate at an early day. He could .
find little objection to the prin
cipal involved or . the mode pro
posed for their recognition. The bill
provides for a commission of five men,
sot more than three of whom shall be
appointed from the same political
party, each to be paid a salary of $7,000
a year. The commission will have
headquarters in Washington, but shall
look into the operation of the tariff
law in .the various sections of the
country and report annually to con
gress with recommendations as to the
changes needed in the tariff law. The
intention is to give congress fresh non
partisan information relative to the
operations of the tariff law and what
is needed to make it more satisfactory,
Of course the conclusions would in a
degree be conferred by its partisan ma
juiity, but for that reason it is regarded
very favorably by the minority. The
reports of tue commission would be
bated on practical and material evi
dence. It would, it is believed, be a
breakwater between the cxtremo and
wide views of the two leadiug political
Washington, Jan "20. Mr. Dorsey
was before the house committee on
agriculture and made an argument in
favor tif his bill giving $250,000 to the
drought sufferers in Nebrasca and those
who lett their hoinei on account of In
dian troubles: The committee declined
to put it in the regular appropriation
bill, as it would be stricken out iu the
house on a point of order. Mr. Dorsey
was asked to cite a precedent and for
that purposs the proposition was refer
red to a snb-committoe. Some mem
bers of the committee said the state of
Nebraska should taue care of its unfor
tunate settlers, but Mr. Dorsey re
minded them that tne majority of these
sufferers had also suffered by the recent
Indian raids, and tne federal govern
ment is surely responsible for its wards
and their acts. Mr. Dorsey says he
will carry his battle for his bill to the
floor of the honsa, but there are little
hopes of success on account of the gen
eral feeling against paternalism on the
part of the federal government. .
Washington, Jan. 20. Most of the
session of the house was taken up by
political speeches and assaults upon the
speaker by the Democrats for past rul
ings. Only one bill of minor import
ance was passed, and at f:2U the house
adjourned. In the senate an hour and
a half was consumed discussing a point
of order raised by Senator Gorman,
taking issue with the vice president's
ruling last Friday, to the effect that an
appeal from a decision of the chair on
a non-dt batable question was itself not
debatable. The matter was finally
dropped and after the introduction of a
number of bills, the elections bill was
taken up and Senator George addressed
the senate in opposition to the bill.
Without finishing his speech the senate
at 6 o'clock adjourned.
, Dressed Beef Decision.'
Washington, Jan. 20. The United
States supreme court handed down an
opinion affirming the judgment of the
circuit court of the United States for
the eastern district of Virginia, direct
ing that a writ of habeas corpus be
gran ed William Redman, convicted in
Norfolk of violation of tha state meat
inspection law. This is one of what is
known as the dressed beef cases, arising
out of state legislation, having for its
object the restriction of the sale of
meats by firms located outside the states
in which the meats are offered for sale.
It was held that the law was an inter
ference with interstate commerce, and
the supreme court sustains the conten
tion. - ,
Historian Bancroft's Funeral.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 20. The

historian, took place at St. John's Epis
copal chnrch at 1 1 o'clock. The edifice

impressive service or tne Episcopal
church was read by the rector, after
which the remains of tne eminent his
torian were followed to the Baltimore

Washington, Jan. 20. The Colorado
gentlemen who recently presented a
silver brick at the Philadelphia mint,
with a demand that it be coined into
dollars for tnem without the usual
seigniorage, 'prayed the supreme court of

Secretary Windom into oourt to answer

contract with the engineers, and after
several hours discussion of the demand,
flatly refused to make any advance,
and declined to change the schedule in
any way that would briug about more
expense to the company. Mr. Arthur
made no threats as to what ths result

The Hutchinson and Sontbsrn Deal a
Good One for tha "Wlasrd" Anti-Pass
Association Dlssolred More Tronbla
Brewing- Over Paasonger Bates.
Chicaoo, Jan. 20. Preadent Per
kins of the Burlington, Hughitt of the
Northwestern, and Gonli of the Mii
souri Pacific have been appointed a
committee to try to induce the Alton
people and the Chicago, St. Paul and
Kansas City to join the new Western
Traffic association. The mission, so
far, has been in vain, and it it believed
will be. It is known that the Rock
Island and Northwestern would not
have gone into the association orig
inally hal they not been bound by
the preliminary, agreement before
Gould secured control of the Union
Pacific. It would have bee :i no
surprise to Chicago railroad men if
either or both of these lines withdrew.
The salaries of the officers have been
arranged as follows: Chairman Walker,
$12,000 a year, and Commissioners
Midgely, Fauhorn ,' Ficley. Smith and
Vinimr $10,003 each, ttnould any of
them be irettiuk more tha i this at pres
ent the difference is to bo male up by
the lines now paying tno larger salar
ies. Thn, tne interstate commerce
railway association lines must make up
an additional expense of $13,000 for
Chairman Walker; the western freight
$2,00J for Mr. Midgely dud the tooth
western railway and steamship com
pany $5,000 for Mr. Fail horn. Chain
man Fiuley is now getting $10,000 and
the salary will be advanced for Com
mitteemen Smith and Vining.
One of Gtwild's Tricks.
Chicago, Jan iO. The Railway
Press bureau says: It ha just developed
that the abrogation of divisions between
the Hutchinson and Southern and Rock
Island is one of the smoothest trie its,
for a small one, ever played by Jay
Gould. The Hutchinson and Southern
was built on money furnished by the
Union Pacific at tha solicitation' of
President Chrystie. The line runs
south, into the Indian Territory from
Hutchinson. A spur of the Union Pa
cific runs to McPherson from Saline,
between McPherson and Hutchinson, a
distance of twenty-seven miles, the
lines are connected by the Rock Island.
In other words a Union Pacific branch
is cut off entirely from the mainline
unlesi it makes a trackage contract
with the Rock Island. This contract
was made, out la?t Friday. It was
abrogated by the Union Picific. Ap
parently Gould has cut off a valuable
feeder, but the milk in the cocoanut
is seen when it is learned that what is
Gould's Union Pacific loss is Gould's
Missouri Pacific train. The Hutchin
son and Southern crosses the Missouri
Pacific three titles south of Hutchin
son, and it might as well be in Pata
gonia as far as delivering traffic to the
Union Pacific i3 concerned.
Passenger Kate Troubles.
Chicaoo, Jan. 4. Representatives
of the St. Louis lines met in Chairman
Finley's office and discussed the unset
tled state of passenger rates. Chair
man Finley had tested the Chicago
market thoroughly and he fouud nine
scalpers selling Wabash mileage from
Chicago to St. Louis for $0.50, a cut of
$1. He also found all scalpers selling
tickets reading "over any line between
Chicago and tit. Louis" and issued by
the Pittsburg aid Western. It waj
apparent that the cnt rate on these
tickets was taken off the eastern por
tion, but the whole tickets from Pitts
burg via Chicago to S Louis had bean
sold at such a hgure that every scalper
in Chicago was selling the St. Louis
portion for $0.73. a cit of 75 cents.
The Wabash agreed to instruct its con
ductors to confiscate all mileage found
in illegal bands.
Anti-Pass Association Broken.
Chicaoo, Jan. 20. The Anti-Pa33 as
sociation of the western roads has been
practically dissolved. It was formed
in December, all the Chicago west
bound lines signing the agreement not
to give transportation, except in a lew
distinctly mentioned exceptions. One
after another the roads have fallen
from grace until there is hardly one
which has not over ana over again
broken the agreement The roads
which lived up to the agreement were
consequently at a disadvantage and
gave notice of withdrawal As far as
known the Atchison, Hurling ton and
Northwestern have withdrawn, their
membership. This breaks the associa

The Marder of Few Tails Caases mm Ua-
asy Feeling at Fine Bldga.
Pise RiD9B Agency, & D., Jan. 20.
The news of the murder of Few Tails
and four of his band and the wounding
of his wife has tended to inflame the
Indians here. The shooting is universally
condemned as a cold-blooded murder.
The uneasiness anions the Indians in
the morning rather died away in tha
afternoon, and Two Strikes came in
with thirty of his men and delivered
up twenty guns, mostly of an obsolete
pattern, tien. Miles nas ordered a
a forage ot twenty days longer and
will, himself, remain here until every- '
thing ia quieted down. A band of
Chejennes will start for Tongue river,
permission having been received from
Washington, lien. Miles hopes be
will ultimately be permitted to separ
ate the hostiles and send them to the
agencies where they belomr. One of
the Indian police discovered the bodies
of four dead Indians in the creek near
Wounded Knee. One wss a boy, two
were girls and the fourth an old
squaw. They were evidently victims
of the Wounded Knee battle. A meet
ing of the commanders of the various
detachments of troops was held to de
cide upon certain tactical movements,
and at the same time the general situa-
tion was canvassed.
