The Cu nese exclusion laws will re
main the same as they cow stand for the
faext ten years.
Congressman Clark, of Wyoming, lias
introduced a bill, which, if passed, will
extend the right of suffrage to every
woman in the country over twenty-one
years of aj:e, m t,ie election of congress
men. The bill will be watched with a
good deal of interest.
Dixon, the soldier under sentence of
death for killing a comrade, has been
granted a respite of one month, the day
on which he was to have been executed
was to be Arbor day and an execution
cannot occur on a leyal holiday. Legal
holidays are becoming so numerous as to
frequently interfere with court proceed
Anarchists 1 ave again been plying
their trade in Paris and ten arsons were
seriously or fatally injured by the ex
plosion of one bomb. The building
wrecked was the shop of a man who had
helped to cause the arrest of the anar
chists, Ravachal, a few days before.
Threatening letters hud been sent to him
but he paid no attention to them.
x It is stated that in some legislative dis
tricts in this state the coming campaign
will be on a platform ofimprovement of
country roads. Bad roads cut down the
'profits of the farmer more than freight
or passenger rates; but it is seldom
thought of, and then it would not appear
60 big for a man to fight bad wagon
roads as it would to fight great railroads.
j Reports from Wales are to the effect
' .that a number of the largest tin plate
factories of the country will erect works
in the United States. The reason for
this is that the McKinley tariff ftiakes it
so that tin plate cannot be shipped from
Wales to this country. They can erect
works in the United States and employ
.American labor and pay American taxes
.and that is what the McKinley bill was
, Lincoln has organized a bureau to
, work for new settlers in Nebraska. If
the organization will make it a part of
. its business to advertise the homestead
( sections of the state it can largely in
crease the population of the state. The
trouble with such organizations in the
jpat has been that they have been used
'to booia a locality already developed,
. even at the expense of other portions of
the state. Perhaps the Lincoln bureau
will' prove more liberal in its scope.
A renewed effort is being made for a
reduction of first class postage to one
.cent. Postmaster General Wanamaker
'. is opposed to the measure. He is urging
.the government postal telegraph and
telephone system and the rural delivery
5 matters and it is probably on account of
.those matters that he it opposed to the
reduction at the present time. It will
not be long until the reduction will come
and it will be hailed with pleasure for it
(will tend to greatly increase the use of
The IoWa Homestead says that Iowa
will be the favorite hunting ground for
patent right sharks and other sharks
.and quacks because the governor ve;
toed a bill taking the Value from notes
given by the farmers for such things.
Allthatis needed is for I he people of
that state to keep their eyes and ears
open and not be behind the times and learn
. to sign no notes or contracts presented to'
. them by strangers. . It is information
and common sense that is needed more
The article from the Iowa Homestead
which appears on the third page of this
.issue is one that should have the careful
thought of every farmer. . The great
trouble is that the world is told of the
few who make a fortunate speculation
or are successful in business. A short
time ago a man made a large sum of
. money on a single board of trade deal.
.The fact was heralded all over the coun
try, but not one word was said of the
-many who were crashed by the same deal?
! Every dollar he made in that deal was
,lost by some one who was less fortunate.
( There is no class among whom there are
,80 few failures as among the farmers
(who study their business and work intel
ligently. A man of sense remarked a
I few days ago that the farmer would
have to give up the attempt to get a dol
lar and a half a bushel for his wheat and
.devise means whereby be could put it on
.the market at a, profit for fifty cents a
.bushel. That sort of spirit will make a
success not only of farming, but of everv

The Hemingford Reformer is the latt-s'
northwest Nebraska newspaper venture.
The salutatory which is signed by Bc-i t
Elswick, contains the following state
ment: "We expect to make a paper of
news and entirely acceptable to all."
Those engaged in the newspaper business
will watch the course pursued by the
editor of the Reformer for if he succeeds
in conducting a paper entirely acceptable
to all it will be more than mortal man
has ever before done. It is reported that
the Reformer is an offshoot of the Craw
In Uie eastern part of the state attor
neys and courts are being roasted for
putting off the trying of cases and tak
ing advantage of all delays allowed In
law. The roaster would find an excel
lent field for that kind of criticism in
Sioux county. It is about time some
means was devised to make the hearing of
cases imperative after they have been on
the docket a reasonable length of time.
A good rule would be to make the party
asking a continuance pay all the costs up
to the next term. To have witnesses
come to court term after term and then
have to wait probably for years before
they receive any compensation is not
right. In jury cases which are continued
it would be no more than justice to make
the party asking for a continuance pay a
portion of the expense of a jury, other
wise it puts an expense on the taxpayers
which is not right.
The Wyoming war is over. The in
vading cattlemen have been taken to
Cheyenne and turned over to the civil
authorities and the ofiicials of Johnson
county have given public notice that
they will protect the employees of the
cattlemen in the round-up. The ques
tion now is what shall be done with the
prisoners? It is thought by some that
because they are members, representa
tives or employes of wealthy organiza
tions the law will be evaded. Such a
thing could hardly be afforded by the
state of Wyoming. It is admitted by
all that the affair cannot but prove detri
mental to that state and should the au
thorities allow the outlaws to escape
punishment it would be a stain on the
state that decades would fail to efface.
The probabilities are that the roundup
will be about the last one for the fool
hardy action of the cattlemen in invad
ing the country with an armed gang of
murderers has aroused a feeling of bitter
ness which will make an end to range
business an absolute necessity. The
trouble has cost at least sis lives and
how many more is unknown and the fi
nancial cost and loss to the state is hard
ly to be estimated. All law abiding
people all over the United States will de
sire to see justice meted out to the cold
blooded scoundrels who planned or parti
pated in the uncalled for invasion.

are expected homefrom Washington to
day or tomorrow. The reports from the
capital city are to the effect that Mr.
Cook will likely be appointed agent at
the Pine Ridge agency. . His recom
mendations were of the highest order and
his quiet, manly bearing called forth the
most favorable comment from all who
met him. To the people of northwest
Nebraska and South Dakota the appoint
ment is of the greatest importance and
to the Pine Ridge Indians it would mean
more than has ever betn done for them
for it would prove to them that the gov
ernment is willing to listen to their re
quests and help them to depart from the
ways of the savage and become civilized
and take their plare in the ranks of men
The cordial assistance and hearty sup
port given Mr. Coot? by Senators Pad
dock and Manderson has been a promin
ent feature in tlie reports from Washing
ton and it is evident that those gentle
men realize the importance of the Re
quest of the settlers in that portion of
their state lying near the Pine Ridge
reservation, and all hope that the ap
pointment of Mr. Cook will be made in
the near future.
One of Mr. Sheila Convert.
Saturday afternoon, after the conven
tion, a small knot of men, among whom
was Chairman Gowdy, were standine
listening to a man in the Denison hotel
office, near the reading room door. The
speaker was a sturdy man of about
31 years, with a bright face; his name
wasKilleyand be is the stock airent of
the Nickel Plate railroad. He was tel
ling the listeners that two or three
months ago he met Mr. R R. Shiel on
business here, as he had before. Business
over, conversation turned toward politics
and Shiel said: "I suppose you area
"Yes," answered Rilley.
"And you, like myself, are a man of
Irish blood. I surm-iw Out. . nM
democrat Because -your father was,' or.
because the Irish for the most part .are.
You have no U-tter rea- i -'
r ,,rrr c ' iune.

i,, ,w it a v.i-y good reason

been one, and I tU '"
that it wa no reason whatever, ome.
went on. declaring that there was uo
sense m the Irh being democ rats and
being so much under the control of dem
ocratic politicians. -They count us a?
theirs, shouted Shiel: 'you hear disputes
..i. (I, Hermans will vote, but
did vou ever mind hearing anyone doubt
how the Irish would vote.- JNot a on o.
it; the democrats count us as projierty. '
"And then we turned to talking ol
Egan," said Rillev. "and I expressed my
regard for him, for I had known some
thing of him. 'Yes' retorted Shiel, but
every democratic pajer in the land is
shouting Pat Egan, as if it were a crime
for a man of Irish blood to hold a high
office. And who gave him this otlice'r
Harrison; and do you mind that in his
message about Chili the president, before
he went on to speak of other matters,
attested to the hiah character and effici
ency of Egan? And still the abuse of
Fan iroes on.' And Slnel Kept mis
thing up, and I got very mad. But after
I left him and was ruling over me coun
try I could not help thinking of it. 'Did
vou ever hear anvone doubt how the
Irish tvould vote?" I opened a demo
cratic paper, and Pat bgan appeared in
black letters, and with slander and abuse.
Then I thought of what Shiel said about
an Irishman driven from Ireland coming
here to help those who had driven him
away by voting the free trade ticket. 1
turned the thing over in my mind. Then
I talked them over with my wife, and in
two weeks we came to the conclusion
that 1 had been a democrat long enough.
I am a republican to-day, like Shiel, and
T am nuttinL' in mv work for Harrison,
who stood by "a man of Irish blood
through evil reports and did Inm honor.
I shall do what I cm to have a doubt
cast upon the way the Irish vote."

People's Independent Party will meet in

member be present.
