platform, but trill not hesitate
to mj'port and work for the
election of candidates for the
various officer to be voted for

they are Democrats, Populist
or free silver Republicans, if

According to report to yesterdays
World-Herald a cable has been cut by
Span i ih in South America waters.
Oenl. Fitzhugh Lee is slated for the
first military governor of Cuba by the
administratioa, so says the daily papers.

One more American Naval battle like
that of Commodore Dewey's, will no
doubt settle the Spanish dynasty for
ever. A part of the Nebraska Volunteers
at least will le sent to the Phillipine
islands accoiding to an order from Genl.
Alger to Gov. Holcomb yesterday.
Serious differences it is reported by
patches from Washington have arisen
between Gen Alp:r and Sec. Gage which
xhe report claim will necessitate one or
the other to resign.
The daily World-herald shows that
tier war news is up with any of the great
eastern metroollan dalies. Any person
in the North west, who desire to obtain
all the news all the time and up to date
thould take the dailv WorUl-lIcrald.
Those who have not read the truo re
port of the Com. Dewey battle at manila
May first should get the Sunday World
Herald of the 8th and read it, for it is an
interesting narati ve of the greatest naval
battle ever fought on water in the
history of the world.
Our noble and heroic Commodore
Dewy, after the notable battle at Man
illa, lost not a momemt but like all Dohle
warriors, anxious to crush the haughty
pride of castile and free Cuba, and add
her star to the american galaxy, under
whose fostering care Cuba will blossom
as the rose. Three cheers for Itear Ad
As stated some two weeks ago in the
column of the Journal, that bonds
would be authorised by congress if the
Wall street Spaniards wanted them.
The statement will soon be verified; ac
cording to late dispatches from Washing,
too sis or seven hannacrats which means
no more no less than a gold republican,
will make it possible for the national
hankers of this country to get what
they want, and whenever they want it
at the hands of congress. Greenbacks
and treasury notes, the money of the
poor people will not give but about
sixty million of usurers money to the
Spanish bond-holders in this country,
hence, the bond issue politics and money
seems to be the principle feature with
a few of the head men of this nation.

Avdree, O. E. U tarsi-, F. XoUnaon,
Miss Helen Gould has set a good
example to the rich bond holders of
New York and other large cities by don
ating acheck to Uncle Sam for $1,000,
000, actuated no doubt by pure motives
and patriotism. What have the nation
al bankers of New York done? simply
nothing but to ask congress through the
administration to uuthroize another
bond issue, yuite a dilferance between
the patriotism of Helen Gould and the
mill ioniare bankers of the country.
A PROSPECT OF WAR-
As JnrilcuU'fl by the flally Press.
Very little war news has transpired
within the past week to be of very great
intrest to the people of the country. But
of course, no telling when some starting
news may fl.isli over the wires that a
great battle is being, or has been fought.
Last Mouday morning report reached
here that the cruiser Montgomrey had
been over takeu by a large Spanish bat
battleship and had been sunk with all on
board. But, Tuesday's World-Herald
special dispatches report the whole story
5000 U. S. troops landed in the pro
vince of Matanssas, yesterday ; and 5000
leave Uncle Sam's domain for there to
day. A Case of Suieitff.
Monday morning early Dr. I'liinney re
ceived a telegram from Adelia a little
village on the H. & M. railroad north
east of Harrison 35 miles saying that
JamcsSwinback had been burned up in
his house Sunday night. As Dr. Phinney
was county coroner he was requested to
come at once and hold an inquest on the
charred remains of the deceased. On
account of the doctor being obliged to
attend district court which was to con
vene soon as the train should arrive he
was detained until near 4 o'clock in the
afternoon before he could get relieved
from court. But though late lie repair
ed at once to the scene of what proved
to be suicide. On arriving there coroner
Phincey found that as reported by tele
gram Jamew Swiuback with the house
he and brother lived in with all its
contents were burned.
A letter left by the deceased and found
probably one hundred yards from tle
house proved beyond a shadow of a
doubt that Mr. Swiubank had committed
suicide llrst setting the house a lira and
then shooting himself with a 22 calaber
The brother who had lived with the
deceased was away at Crawford on busi
ness and during his absence took this
opportunity of self distruction. The
short note which was left as stated a
love and addressed to his brother was to
tbe effect that he thought it was better
for him to die than to suffer longer
and bidding him with others good bye.
Mr. Swinbank was little past 30 years
old and had been a patient sufferer with
chronic rheumatism which prompted
him to close his earthly career.
ad inquest was not held as it was
thought the note left was conducive
evidence of the suicide. John Mosely
a neighbor impaneled a jury and held an
inquest but as the coroner concluded it
was not legal he did not recognize it as
such and besides he did not think it was
necessary to bold an inquest under tbe
circumstances. Tbe body what was
left of it was prepared and shipped to
Illinois tbe old home of the deceased
Those who are intimately acquainted
with the brother of the deceased, will
certainly sympathize with him in bis
bereavment which will be so hard for
him to bear.
War Now Twice ft week.
The fact that the Omaha Weekly
World Herald is issued twice a week
fives it an immense advantage over
other weekly papers sent out from Oma
ha. A subecriber to the weekly World.
Herald gets his war news twice a week
instead of only once. For this service
the World-Herald charges only $1.00 a
year, which is ten than one cent a copy,

Something to Iteineniber.
The question of perpetual motion has
been solved by a populist genuis:
Rags make paper.
Paper makes money.
Money makes banks,
Banks make loans.
Loans make poverty.
Poverty makes rags.

Belong to the Living.
Thesupremecourt has decided against
an income tax. The decision should be
reversed if possible. If tbe constitution
is such that the decision must stand, it
shou Id be amended so as to allow the
Government to get at corporate wealth
which is escaping taxation. It is the
same with charters. I don't believe in
long-time charters. How can one
generation of men give away the rights
of those who come after them? The
right to control the affairs of the world
belonging to the living. Gov. Pingree.
Licking Cong ss.
"If we can hold congress for twodays,"
remarks Mr, Steve Elkins, "we have
got it licked." That appears to express
the dominant idea of the administration.
The object is not to "lick" Spain but to
lick congress and incidently the people
of the United States. And the outlook
favors the hopes of the administration.
Tyrant or Coward.
Gold is a tryant in time of peace and
a coward in time of "war. Gold never
did serve as a circulating medium in
time of war and it never will. National
Era (Vincennes, Ind.).
The Anarchist Pingree.
That dreadful Michigan anarchist has
broken loose again. His latest political
heresy is the dogma that every one
should be made to pay his just share of
taxes. Journal (Chicago).
The Cause of Crime.
A great deal of crime says Benjamin
Swift is due to want of proper nourish
ment in childhood and youth and to the
irritability which results from a starved
body and brain.
Best American Thought.
The record believes that the munici
pality should acquire ownership of the
street railway lines as soon as possible.
It believes that an honest council will
come inevitably to this conclusion when
it begins to consider the matter. This
is in line with the best American
thought on the subject. Chicago Rec

We must have a stronger government
The wealth of the country demands pro

rights of the paupers who are continual

avert fearful blodshead a strong central
government should be established as
soon as possible. Senator Sharon, de
