A report flashed over the wire early
yesterday morning from Omaha to the
effect that the battle ship Maino had
lieen blown up in Havana harbor late
last Tue-sday evening. Whether done
by the Spanish military, by the bursting
ol the ship's boilers, or by the bursting
of a powder magazine on board the Maine
the dispatches fail to say. Whatever
the cause amy or might have been, 2''i

(.hip is a total loss.
Many opinions are rife ay to the. cause
of the distruction of the battle ship
.Maine. Coming as it does, so soon after
the DtLorno incident, many believe it to
be t!.e work of tlie Spanish boldiers, but

BOODLERS ARE PLOTTING
They Make a Malicious Attack on the
Populist State Committee.
THE SHERIFF GETS AFTER
Joe Johnson and Ed Sizor Propose
to purify the Republican
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 16. (Special
correspondence.) While the farmers of
Nebraska are making their plans for an
other season of hard -work and giving
all their thoughts and attention to tha?,,
the old gang of republican boodlers are
making their plans to recapture the state
government and re-establish the old
regenae, under which the farmers ot
the state have been so unmercifully rob
bed. Realizing that they have a difficult job
on haed they looked about for a vulner
able point to attack, and found none.
Knowing that their overthrow was in a
!arge taeasure the result of the brilliant,
honest, open-handed campaign made
under the direction of the present popu
list state committee, their malice sug
gested an attack on the olficers of the
committee, so last week the vilest slan
der that could be invented by malicious
men was printed in a Lincoln republican
paper, with the intention of using it se
cretly in the next campaign. The men
attacked were J. II. Edmisnten, chairman
of the populist state committee, and Geo.
W. Blake, its treasurer, with some in.
siiwations thrown in, implicating Gov.
Ilolcomb and others. The story printed
was a rehash of the old tale, so often
told by Joe Johnson, about the re
count ef the ballots on the constitu
tional amendments, but charging spe
cifically the grossest crimes against Ed
miasten and Blake.
These men hate Edminsten with a ha
tred that know no relonting. Why?
Because Edmisten is one of the old pops
who has fought the thieves since away
back in the preceding decade.
Ha was one ol the original organizers
oftbe populist party. He was a del
egate to the Cincinnati and St Louis
conventions, which laid the plans for
the formation of a new party. He was
a member of the Omaha convention
that formed the populist party. Gov.
Ilolcomb was first nominated for judge
in grove on Edmisten's farm, the
us of which and a beef for a bar
becue was donated by him. He was
chairman of the congressional commit
tee that conducted two successful cam
paigns in the Sixth d, strict and sent
tl first populist from Nebraska to
congress, and although he did not have
the best timber for a candidate with him
he laid out the renowned George Wash
The people of Lincoln have been con
vulsed with laughter most of the
time fer the last week. The republi
can city administration became so no
toriously corruot that it could be en
dured no longer. The leaders learn
ing that a lot of the city officials were
pretty sure to be indicted at this term
of court, held a meeting and resolved
that they would purify the party.
Tliey organized what tney called the
Hamilton club and placed Joe Johnson
and Ed Si zer on a committee to do the
purifying. Joe is now a purilied saint and
goes around singing,
"I want to lie an angel.
And with the angeta Htand." ,
