The reports from Wahington state
that Congressman Brvan will secure
some patronage while Messrs. M
Keighan and Kern w ill be left nit in ly in
the cold. Thev will be constrained to
cry: "Water, water everv where but
.not a drop to drink"'.
The Thaver-Bovil case has been ar-
igiied and submitted in the United States
supreme court and it in expected that a
.decision will be handed down soiutime in
.January. The prevailing opinion seems
to be that Gov. Thayer will still con
tinue to hold down the excutive chair.
"Senator Paddock is at the head of the
'.Senate committee of agriculture and
.forestry and those branches will be well
,looked after by him. He also holds a
position on the committee on pensions,
public lands and Indian depredations, all
of which are of importance to the people
.of his state.
Representative Townsend, of Colorado,
will introduce a bill in the house to tuna
iarid lands over Jo the states. This is the
move in the great scheme of tla
irrigation companies and should be sat
idown on hard. If the states can handle
.such matters the United States can do so
; still better.
'The reports, indicate tliat the prospect

iMr. Lambertson is well fitted for the

Senator Manderson is chairman of the
Senate committee on printing. In this
position he ought to be able to relieve
the printing fraternity of the unwar
ranted conietition of the government in
the matter of printing envelops. No
ther business has to meet the govern
ment in competition and many thou
sands of dollars are annually taken from
Ihe legitimate channels of trade thereby.
l'he press of Xebi-aska should urge Sena
tor Manderson to use every effort to
have such cometition done away with.

The organization of a county agricul
tural society has been accomplished.
This is but the foundation. To make the
society a success it is necessary that a
reat deal of work be done. It is an ag
ricultural society and the success of it
pends, to a very great extent, on the
inners. A lew men cannot make it a
success. It is governed by the state
aws and one member has no more to
,iy in the matter than another, and it is
the duty of all to take hold of the work
with a will and carry it to a success.
Do not neglect the matter.
The county attorney of Dawes county,
'A. N. Harbaugh, is getting after the
! gamblers of that county and the saloon
keepers of Chadron have been jerked up
: and those of Crawford are expected to be
served likewise. It is always the case
that in the new counties gambling runs
openly for a time and then the authori
ties take a hand and enforce the law, but
iitseemu that Dawes county has had
enough court costs to pay as the out
fgrowth of the gambling institutions so
ithal some move ought to be made.
"'When iron goes up look out for good

The Nebraska senators are demonstrat-
ng tliat they are alive to their duties.
Sen. Manderson has indroduced a bill to
create postal savings banks; and to cre
ate a branch mint at Omaha; one to di
vide Nebraska into three judicial dis
tricts and one to provide for the publish-
ng of notice of sale of real estate on de-
reeof the United States court, in the
state and county in which the land is lo-
ated. This bill was favorably reported
on at the last session, but failed to reach
a final hearing. It is one of a great deal
of importance and will quite likely be
passed by the present congress. Senator
Paddock has also introduced a number of
bills, the most imjiortant of which is his
pure food bill and this he hopes to push
rapidly through and get it upon the stat
ute liooks at an early date. The indica
tions are tliat the present session of con
gress will be a lively one.
The Experienced Editor.
The general reader can easily dis
tinguish by reading a newspaper whether
the editor is of the green and callow
class, or whether he has been through
the mill, so to speak. If he is one of the
former, his paper will bristle with
attacks on this shortcoming or that neg
lect; on the idiosyncracy of this one or
the eccentricity of that one, and the
word "gore" seems to be water-marked
on every page. With the experienced
editor it is different. He has rid himself
of the idea that the reformation of the
world is his especial work, and sufficient
unto the day are the scars he now bears.
He has learned that no man is without
faults, and he believes tliat one line of
praise is worth more than a column of
blame in securing needed reforms. He
vents no personal spites, nor engages in
petty quarrels, and if he does strike at
an abuse it is because it is flagrant and
its correction demanded by the best in
terests of the. public. There is yet
another kind of editor the one who
realizes his inability to interest his read
ers by legitimate news, and so strives to
create sensation by attacking prominent
men in their weak points, but this sort of
tactics never succeeds outside of the
largest cities. In the smaller place ,
this editor is soon short on cadavers i od
character, and is forced to shut up shop.
( ' tnj) tni.jn for J -'j-.', w hich we have re
ceived seem to touch about all healthy
tastes. Itn fiction embraces folklore,
serial. s.'H, mlveiilmv zv tu.lid.iy stories.
