Tlie Monarchies of Europe are raid to
riew tle new republic of Brazil viith dis
trust and claim that the government
cannot long exist. That is v. hat was
aid of the United States government
and tliat is what lias lxfen said of every
republic which linn been organized, but
the fai t remains that such government
can exist and are growing more popular
the time. All that is tlie matter
with the monarch yet in power is thai
they fenr that their subjects will also
take it into their heads Unit a republican
form of government would tj a gond
thing to have and follow the exnmpU of
Brazil, only pe-rhops they would not U
quite so considerate in the treatment of
the deoed monarch as were the people
of Brazil in their course toward I)om
Pedro and his family. Monarchy Is but
a relic of barborous and ignorant ages
and they must go the same as all other
customs of a similar nature.
Tlie gaining opul!irity of loan ami
building association has opened the way
for a lot of irresponsible arties to go
about the country representing tlieni-
telves to be agents for some loan and
building association and having authori
ty to organize local lioanlx, rollm t tlie
HifHiU-rship fees and first installment
and all other money necessary to ojien
tlie business. In a number of cases it
has been found that those agents were
simply adventurers who liad no such au
tbority and were simply working the
racket to make a raise. The laws of Ne
braska are not so that the investor is
protected and the result Is that a good
many get taken in who can illy afford to
loose the amount paid. These loan and
building association frauds also injure
,tbt biwnesM of the responsible orguniza
tmii by milking the people unnecessari
ly suspicious of all such coinanies or
their agents. Laws ought to tie made
requiring companies who have their
beadquurters in another state but who
ish to do business io Nebraska, to give
a guaranty of responsibility by deposit
ing a certain amount with the state, and
tin n no siiier.t ouL'ht to ! allowed to

The condition and outlook of -the ironJ
trade of tlie country is one of the most
reassuring feature in the business situ
lion. It is an accepted maxim that the
.condition of this trade 1 a barometer of
commercial and industrial prosperity, so
tliat the almost unparalleled revival and
x .extension of the iron industry is to be re
garded ax promising an improvemeut in
all the channels of business. In (ireat

A couple came to this
county recently and obtained a license
and were married, and we are informed

tion for the crime of bigamy, and the
penalty for tliat is confinement in the
oeuaentiary. The laws of this state re
lating to marriage and divorce are not
the best that could begotten up but it
would lie well if the laws we have were
better observed. The iudire in a district
in the eastern part of this state had a
case tried Wore him where a woman
asked for a divorce from her husland.
.'uniig me uiai sue was asKea 11 she
wanted the divorce so that she could
marry another man, and she saiil she did
not. The decree was granted and within
a few days she did marry another man.
This fact came to the knowledge of the
judge while the district court was in
session, and we are informed that he an
nulled the decree which he had granted
to the woman, so it left her married to
two men and her statement on the stand
and her action afterwards made her
guilty of perjury, and also liable to lie
sent to the penitentiary for bigamy.
Such lack of regard for the marriage
laws does not have a tendency to create a
very high respect for the other laws of
the state and the result cannot but be
detrimental to the general welfare of the

About 5,0(10 Sioux Indians who take
allotments will lie full citizens and al

voters by the next presidential election.
This will bring about a new feature in
Uikoui politics. You cau catch the Ger

catch the Irish vote with a bottle of
whiskev. vou can catch the American
vote with a five dollar bill, but the In
dian vote can only tie controlled witli a
mast doir and a bowl of soup. It will be
somewhat unique to see the politician
start out to work the Indian district,
with a herd of dogs and a wagon load of
dumrhter bouse intestines. He will take
-t-ln-olJ braves out behind
house, pull out the doctored ticket from
one pocket and four yards of entrails
from the other pocket and proceed to get
