The report is that ia tiie Montana muddle the renubl leans are eominsr out With victory perched uon their banner. , It is irncrellv looked upon as a triumph of justice over fraud. The masonic lodges of Lincoln are tak ing active steps to expel all members who are saloon keepers acd liquor deal ers. This is in accordance with a rule nil mod at the last session of the Grand Lodge. ' An attempt will be made to'divide Gage county, the new division line pass ing through the city of Beatrice, within a block of the court house square. It is quite likely that a hot contest at a spec- ial election will follow the submission of he question. There is great excitement in Spain over the supposition that the young king is dead and that the fact is iieing kept from the public, but the object for withholding the truth is not'known, and the people of 8painTure becoming quite uneasy. Calvin 8. Brice, the rainbow chaser has been made the nominee of the demo ocratic caucus for senator in Ohio to suc ceed Henry 8, Payne. It is thought by some that Brice will attempt to use the senatorship as a stepping stone to 'presi dential aspirations. An ordinance has been passed by the council of McConnelsville, Ohio, for building a high fence around a certain saloon in thatown so" that the only place of ingress and ""egress will be the front door. That will stop sneaking in at the back door bv those who wish to take a "nip" without being seen. Ben. F. Baker has been appointed United 8tatesattorney"for the district of Nebraska. This is a goodjappointment and will give very general satisfaction, Mr. Baker" was a member of the lower bouse ofithelast legislature where he demonstrated" the fact that he was the possessor of a gooddealjjf legal ability. Judge William D. Kelly, ofTenosylva nia,better known' as "Pig Iron Kelly,' died at his home last week. He had been a "niember'of the lower house of congress longer than'any other man and was frequently mentioned as the "Fatlie of the House." He enteretrcongress 1861 and remained3&Xnlemberunt''Xn's death. There were nearly 5000"bills"introduced in the Senate and House previous to the holiday adjournment, of which 2,500,000 copies were'printed. As'nine out of ten of these nroDoseu laws were wholly use less and will never be acted upon, the ex cense of printing them in such liberal quantities can only be regarded as a flag rant waste of public money, ami it is to be hoped'tbat a"better"! practice will soon be instituted. " has never been iu a position to watch tl settlement and development of a new country, can form no idea of the matter. Ttu ruiw f-onnf rt4 are settled bv a clas of people who are least able to accotn- plish tiie tank tliey take upon tltemselves j hopes of bettering their conditions. I Go out on the prairies and you will tiuu the voung man who arrived with scarce- dollar in his pocket, and on the next laiin you will find the man with a large family who lias found it inijoMble to make a living in tlie older .sett led coun tries, while in trie next little house you will find the broken down merchant, struggling to gain a living on a piece of land, although uutil he came west he never held a plow in his life and perhaps scarcely ever drew a rein over a horse. For a while all these struggle along and live from hand to mouth. But reverses came and they are about to'give up their claim and seek some other means of mak ing a bare'living. Juhtat'this point'the loan cornpany'steps in and advances tlie means for them to secure a new hold. With renewed hope the settler goes on with his work. He improves his farm and g-athers a little stock aliout mm and in a few years he can not only jy off tlie mortgage, but ne tan look the world prouifly in face and say that by energy and "grit" and a little timely assistance from the loan company, he has maile a beautiful home on the western wilds and lias benefited his fellowmnn by liene- fiting himself, for he has transformed in to a rich and productive farm what would haveotlierwise have been a waste. It would be "almost out of the question to settle the west were it not for the as sistance of the real estate mortgage, and tlie records show that a smaller ijr cent of them are foreclosed than of any other class of securities in existance. It is on ly in ease'off indiscreet loan cornianies or agents tliat any cases of failure to meet the payments occurs, for in a majority of cases if a man cannot meet his pay ments he finds some one who will pur chase bis interest in the land and tlie new owner goes on with the improvement of the plaee and by the time tlie principal falls due the hind is worth ten times the face of the loan. Instead'of the loan companies being a curse to st'new coun try they are the greatest blessing known to tbehomesteadera. SMITH'S POINTERS FOR 1890. A Good Grade of Family FloOr for $1.15 per sack.

The judge sentenced him to the penitentiary for life. This is about as stroni: a case of Youthful depravity as we have noted for a long time. Tlie court refused to make'the confession pub lic on account of its'sensational charac ter. " ' Those best informed in Missouri politics are expressing Uie opinion that that state will give a republican majority in 1893. ' The democrats have been gradually los ing ground for some years and of late the change has been quite rapid. With the addition to the republican strength made by the admission of the new states and Missouri wheeling into line, the pros pects are pretty slim for the democratic " partyjever again ; getting control of the national government. The supreme court of tlie state was re-organized on last Thursday by Chief Justice Beese retiring , and Judge, Cobb Mooning chief justice and the newly tjectr member, Judge Norval, taking kH eeat on the bench. There were a Bomber of "aspirants for the position of ' eiirk of the court, each member having e, nan whom lie favored. The result tree the reappointment of Walter A. feesea to tfoe pontoon, the appointment, to KM food'uatil May, when, if the judges mi fame, a nermanent clerk will be The Foreigner iu Politics. St. 1-ouis Globe Democrat. Only twenty members of the popvnar branch "of congress, it is said, are of for eign nativity. That is to say, out of the 320 men who constitute that body six tee were bonrui the United States to every one w ho was bora outside of it. This is contrary, of course, to popular opinion'in this country, as it is radically opposed to the prevailing notion abroad. The general assumption during tlie civil war and since then was and, is that a large proportion of the Union forces in that struggle were men of foreign birth. This opinion too, has been and is still held on both sides of the Atlantic except by those who have taken the trouble to become acquainted with the precise facis. In reality the ratio of this" class to natives was small. Of the 2,000,000 men and more w hose names were in scribed'on the rolls of the armies'of the Federal Government in the war between the states, ninety Ove out of every hun dred, according to our recollection of the figures, were born on onr soil. It is a fact which the demagogue and the socialistic tiuack should bear con stantly in mind that the foreigner ha eomnarativelv sneaking, a smaller t-hiire n tlie management of the country's af fairs and the development of its interests and activities than is commonly sup posed, even by intelligent persons. The men born ahroard, ills true, comprise an element of our population important in number as wen as in lmiuence arm force, but its proportion of the aggregate mass is and must continue to he sleauuy lessening, for, as a class, the children born here of foreign panintage are as fully American in instincts and aspira tions as are the descendants of the men who landed from the Mayflower.- The ancient and stale assertion w hich often does duty for fact in the press of Eng land and other lurorean countries as well as in the papers of reckless agita tors and scalawags here, that the politics of the United States is moulded and dominated bv persons bom abroad, s round to be false when testeo ry tact. Without detracting in the smallest detrree from the praise which is due to the patriotism and potency or tne nat uralized citizen, it can. truthfully be said that in both war and in peace tlie country is defended, developed and gov erned by those who were bornunder the sliadow of. its nag. duction. y7 Kentucky Ains at Hoe's, worth 50fts.

To counteract tlie effect of these reck less utterances, the liw, m common with other western newspayers. has called at tention to the steady and liealtliy growth of the west and the development of its marvelous resources. nehave denied tliat the mortgage records represent Uie actual debt of western farmers,.
