tlie national capitol will be the pluce
selected, although New York is making
a deHjjerate effort to sev iire the prize.
It is reported that a move is on foot
at Crawford to yet the railroads crossing
there to put in a switch so that cars can
be transferred from one road to the
other. This would he a benefit to this
locality as immigrants cars and other
stuff could he shipjied from B. & M.
points here without being handled.
Bank reserves in New York are in
creasing, clearances and railroad earn
ings are heavy, money is abundant and
low, and tlie financial situation general
ly is satisfactory. Tlie business outlook
has seldom been more encouraging in
the middle of the first month of the cal
endar vear tlian it is at this moment.
Kun ze, the German defendant in the
Cronin case, lias been granted a new
trial. A good deal of doubt as to his
guilt has been expressed ever since the
close of the trial and the tendency of the
court has been to see that justice was
done to all, and now it is reported that
the proceedings against him will be dis
missed and he be set at Liberty.
An important move was made in of
ficial circles of the B. & M. a few days
ago. E. Bigtell, who lias been assistant
superintendent, with headquarters at Al
liance, has been made superintendent to
succeed D. E. Thompson. Mr. Bignell is
to be congratulated on his promotion.
He is still a young man and his being se
lected for tlie important position of su
perintendent is a recognition of his abil-
Census Superintendent Porter says
he expects every enumerator to be
' ready to begin work at nine o'clock in
the morning of the first day of June
and he expects to have the returns in
shape so that congress can apportion
the representation of each state in
time for the election of 1892. Mr. Por
ter appears to be determined that the
census of 1890 shall be published in
less time after it is taken than was
that of 1880.
The republicans in the Iowa legisla
ture express their determination to force
the democrats to yield or continue the
deadlock until midsummer. The demo
cratic governor cannot he inaugrated
until the matter is settled and the result
is that the republicans have one point of
advantage in that fact. Senator Allison,
having been made the choice of the rep
ublican caucus for his own successor,
rests perfectly easy and urges the repub
lican members to hold to their principles
and not worry about him.
Omaha is still rustling and is after the
the national methodist conference and
also a national fat stock show. It is be
coming apparent to all organisations
that Nebraska cities are good places to
go to be entertaind are taking advantage
of all opportunities offered to visit the
rapidly growing cities of this state. It is
safe to say that Omaha will capture the
Methodist conference and the fat stock
show, and the treatment the visitors re
ceive at tlie hands of the people will
make them feel kindly to all Nebras
kans. Walker Blaine, eldest son of Secretary
of State James G. Blaine, died at the fam
ily residence in "Washington on January
15th, of acute pneumonia caused by an
attack of la grippe. He was sick but a
few days and his sudden death come
with a terrible shock to his parents and
many friends. He was a man of more
than ordinary ability and his success in
places of official responsibility indicated
that he had inherited his father's execu

It is reported that up in Sioux coun
ty the out-going county official, had a
scheme all fixed up this year whereby
they expected to stay there. The plan
was, we believe, for the county com
missioners to find fault with the bonds
of the officer-el.'t or something of
that sort, and fool along with the new
men for a vear or two while the old
ollicials continued to get in their work.
But people outside of the "rinn" irot
onto things in some way and on the
day upon which tlie winds were to te
"considered" there hapnod t lje
from one hundred and lifty to two
hundred men in town from the country,
all armed w.ith either revolvers, Win
chesters or shot (funs. There were no
threats made by the ariued men but
some of them incidentally expressed a
desire to see the tends of the new coun
ty official!) approved, and they were
approved. The commissioners found no
room for a kick, the new officers were
dulv installed, the had men from awav
up the Sowbelly went home and unload
ed their weapons into jack rabits, instead
of county rinsters, and white winged
peace will airain hover for a fiew mo
ments over that turbulent political lmt-tle-fleld,Sioux

anainst the liquor habit that lias been

intoxicated a second time wlen in the
