Omaha i happy over the prospsct of.
having a fine union passenger depot, a
dec ision having recently t-en made to
that effect by the tate board of trans
portation. It will I highly appreciated
by the traveling public. j
Senator Stewart, whose waring lilacs
were plucked by the vandal hands of
Sergeant at-Arms Stewart during the ;
lat legislature, has permitted his iaier,
the Crawford Bmcm. to be sniffed out.
There was no demand for it. Fremont
John ('. Santee, a pioneer newspaper
man of Boyd county, hanged himself in
his barn a few davs ago. Business re-
verses are said to have led to the art. j
His name has long leen familiar in con-;
neetion w ith the part of the state w here
he lived.
So far the acknowledged candidates
for the republican nomination for presi
dent are Reed of Maine, Morton of New
York, Mc Kinley of Ohio, and Allison of
Iowa. At present Ohio's favorite ,
Deems to !e in the lejul, hut the nice
young yet and others may enter
list. ,
It i reported that ttie hotel keejiers of j
SU Louis intend to charge from $10 U
$40 a day for ordinary accommodations
during the national republican conven
tion. If that be true the national com
mittee should fret together and recon
sider its action and hold the convention
in some other citv.
It is all very well for everyliody to
"stand up for Nebrska" but that does
not alter tlie fact that business condi
tions and climatic conditions in the
eastern part of the state are far from
being satisfactory. It is becoming more
apparent every day that some new en-1 Tlie folio uur is a summitry of tiie m

Tlie question of holding one or two re
publican state conventions it bein;f dis
cussed. Tle national convention will
convene June 16th so that the conven
tion to elect delegates thereto will most
likely be in May. That is too early to
put a state ticket into the field, and then
it would be hardly proper for a state
to try to pet ahead of the nation. H
would look like a performer fretting
ahead of the band-wagon. Two conven
tions, one in May and the other the lat
ter part of September, would be the
right thing.
ii. A. Eckles, county attorney of
lhttves county, is announced as a candi
date for the nomination of auditor at the
hands of the republican state conven
tion. Why not? Northwest Nebraska
lias never had anything to brinif it into
prorainece but crop failures, Indian
scares, cowboy races, populist majorities
nd H. O. Stewart's whiskers. It might
lie a good plan to show outsiders that all
is not gloom west of the sandhills. Get
into the rinu Mr. Eckles, get into the
ring. Notxxiy don't get nothin' he
don't holler fer.
There is a good deal tieing said of Itoss
L. Hammond being aliout the right man
to tlli Congressman Meiklejohn's place.
Hoss Hammond and his Fremont Tribune
lias done more than any other one man
in the third district for the republican
party, and if in politics the ones who do
the work were the ones who got the re
ward, he would have a walk-away.
As a rule the newspaper men are ex
pected to "wlwop 'er up" early and late
for tlie party and if he dares to seek a
little recognition lie is slapped in the
face for his imprudence and the honors
and lucrative places are bjstowed on
some fellow who never made an effort
in the interest of the party until lie be
came a candidate for office.
Tbe two new United States battleships
will lie named Kentucky and Kearsarge.
Tlie contract is awarded for these two
vessels to the Newport News Ship Build
ing and Dry Dock -Company, at $2,250,
000 each. Such vessels will help Uncle
Sam to retain tbe respect of the grea
nations of the earth. There has n 1 ways
been a feeling that this nation did not
need a large standing army, for the rea
son Unit almost any numccr of men
could be mobilized very quickly if need
ed awl of a class that could be trans
formed into an effective army in a very
short time if the arms and ammumtioo
war in the hands of the government for
distribution. That position is very
largely correct, but the matter of a
Hfjf ia quit different. It takes time to
const uct such hugs vessels, and in the
vast of unusual haste it would be very
at to be at the aspens of safety or ef
fective). Ia view of th recent eom
plicatioo which th nation has been
eaJled wpoo to face, it will be wis Tor
Uk aavjr t be very much strengthened,
for Ik warfare of th future to a great

ne of tue rnk l things that Iias w - i
rred in the senate for a lonif tune was j
; the iutro luction of a resolution by one
! of the silver senators culling upon tlie j
; president to furnish information as to i
