Mi. Keru on the run, for that is about
what it amounts to when a congressman
iv.orts to writing letters explaining his
record to be published in the organs of
i rank Sharp, a well-known hustler
; : uni Fremont, was in this city Thurs--'jy.
He had with him A. J. llackelt of
( hi. ago w ho stated that ha was looking
Kr a good place to build a H'O.OOO beet
M.gar factory, lie wanted $75,000
bonus, $0,000 of which we understood
i.e was willing to take in land. lie was
j idled out the proper location, the land

ivturn in a few days. The Siynal be
lieves that the building of a beet sugar

The supreme court of Colorado has
sustained the governor in the dismissal
of meniliers of the Are and police com
mission of the city of Denver and the
members of that body who were obnox
ious to the chief executive have yielded
quietly to the law. That ends the trou
ble which came so near causing blood
shed in that city a few weeks ago, w lien
the governor called out the state miliiia
to enforce his w islies in opposition to ao
injunction from the court to restrain
him from dismissing members of the fire
and paiice commission ((ending a hcarin
of tlie ca.-j. It w as a very Uangerou
thing for tlie governor to take the course
he did. If those high in authority re
fuse to respect the orders of tlie court
they must not be surprised at lawless
acts by the people.
ning with Sunday, April 2'Jth, tliat paper
will contain the first installment of a
children's story, written especially for it
by a Cfcicago man, Sam Clover. A
unique feature of this story is tliat it is
to be named by Chicago school children
after reading. This with tlie musical
supplement, a new art feature, makes
the Sunday Inter Ocean a most inter
esting and welcome visitor for every
member of the family.
The various divisions or Coxeyites are

whiit the outcome will be. Some places
The business men of Alliance and the
farmers thereabout have organized an
irrigation association to develop work
where practicable, the people all over
the west have come to realize the bene
fits of irrigation and the work will be
kept moving right along. The most
needed thing now is proper legislation on
the subject. A law that will protect the
rights of all and prevent as much litiga
tion as possible and allow the fulles
possible use of the water will do more
than anything else to develop the west
ern part of Nebraska. It is the duty o
the legislative committee of the North-
west Nebraska Irrigation Association
which was appointed at tlie last meeting
of that organization to get a bill in
shape and have it ready to present to the
legislature w lien it convenes nest win
ter. In the preparation of the bill the
committee should act in concert with
representatives of tlie other irrigation
organizations of the state so that but
one bill will be introduced and that be a
Ucome them and some do all they can I g00j one which will meet the demands
to keep them away. Some express fear
of the results and others laugh at the
scheme, but there are few who see that
there is a possibility of any direct good
to come ot it. senator Arien made a
grandstand play in' a great speech' in sup
port of the move. It was severely criti
cized and even he did not want to stand
by what he said for when tlie time came
he toned it down very much before it
went into the record. It will not- be
long until the outcome will be known.
James Whitehead has written to the
secretary of the congressional committee
stating that he will not be a candidate
for congress in the coming campaign.
uis right to the nomination was con
ceded by all the other aspirants in the
jiarty and now that lie is out of the way
a large crop of candidates is springing
up. Whitehead's name is being men
lionetl frequently as a good one With
which to head the state ticket.' He has
many friends all over' the state and' it
may be that they will not allow him to
retire to private life. The state needs
tlie services of good men and Whitehead
!s one of tliat kind. Tom Majors and
Jack McColl seem to be the others who
are in the lead for the piace at the head
of the state ticket, but the race is young
yet and no one can now predict what the
butfome will be. If the republican
jvarty wishes to regain what it has lost
in the state and district it must see to it
itiat none but good men are namec; as
leaders. One unwise selection would

Silver for tbe World.
A dispatch irora Ivomlon announces
tliat Mr. Balfour, the conservative
leader in the House of Commons, Mr
Lidderdale, formerly governor of the
Bank of England and a distinguished au
thority on matters of finance, with
others of prominence, have promised to
attend an international bimetalic con
ference to be held May 2 at the official
residence of the lord mayor of London.
Under wliat auspices or upon whose
invitation the proposed conference has
been called does not appear, but the an
nouncement is interesting as showing
that the subject of hi metal ism is com
manding serious attention abroad. Mr.
Balfour following the avowed adhesion
of Lord Salisbury to tlie policy of bl-
metalism, has for some time been a pro
nounced advocate of the policy, and as
one of the foremost leaders of the con
servative party his influence in its behalf
must not be underestimated, me ex
governor of the Bank of England is
probably a more recent convert, but he
stands very high in financial circles and
bis espousal of lie cause of bimetalism
cannot fail to t have great weight both
with the people and with the moneyed
. The discussion of the inadequacy and
injustice of the existing assessment laws
of the state has been resumed. It fc' al
ways taken ap at this season of the year
in all parts of the state and a firm re
solve made that when selections are next
made for members of the legislature the
matter of the assessment laws will be l
looked after and men sent to iuakj laws
who will do something to correct the
vrongs now existing. But wlien the
time conies some fellow will ha1 e some
kind of a hobby which he will ride about
over his legislative district and he will
make the people believe that all that is
necessary for them to do to bring them
prosperity in this world and eternal hap
piness in the world to come is to have
such hobby become a law and that be,
the rider of tlie hobby, is the only person
able to get said bofcby put upon, the
statute book and as a" result he will ride
o tbe legislature thereon and the wants
of the people so far as reform in assess
ment go are entirely lot sight of.
There is no matter of more importance

be of interest to some school officers

of saving others a good deal of trouble;
In regard to the much talked of chart
swindle which has arisen in Holt county,
we submit the following opinion from
State Superintendent Gotidy to Superin
tendent Jackson. It may throw some
very important light upon the subject of
school directors w ho act NOT in accord

How Do You Walk!
A celebrated French physiognomist
was wont to declare that he had but to
follow persons and imitate their walk,
gesture and facial expression to diag
nose accurately their ge neral character
istics, and especially the emotions of the
moment. Now if we realized, al vavs.
when mingling with our fellow-beings,
that "he who runs may read'' even our
mest secret thoughts, we should cer
tainly put a guard upon ourselves tliat
the thoughts might be such as we should
not be ashamed to acknow ledge if they
were proclaimed from the housetops.
If you doubt this statement you have
but to mingle with the crowd and imi
tate pronounced walks and gestures to
be fully convinced of the truth of the
theory; aud you will be deeply impressed
by the mental and physical effects thus
Par example, assume a slouching gait,
let thhody fall heavily over on one hip,
drag oue foot after the other, drop the
outer coruors of the eyebrows and the
corners of the mouth, and, presto! you
will instantly feel completely demoral
i zed, a wreck, utterly unlit for the
slightest menUl or physical exertion
As you pursue your investigations you
will be amazed by discovering how frc
quently the human beini; appears but
huge lump of semi-inert matter with
countenance expressing as nearly a men
tal vacuum as nature can tolerate.
There are oases of heaviness of mind
acting upon tlie body, and that, in turn
