J. W. BURLEIGH. Ed. and Pub.
Omaha is being invaded by the big
revivalist, Rev. Torrey, and that to
gether with the trial of the big cattle
men is making things lively in that
Herman Kountze, the well known
banker of Omaha is dead. He is said
to have left his heirs some ten
millions of dollars to keep the wolf
from the door.
■■ ■ ■■■—■■. i^—
As usual, the newly elected state
officers are being besieged by a hun
gry hoard of seekers after place, each
one in his own estimation having
saved the day to republicanism.
The big cattlemen of west Nebras
ka are up for trial in the federal
court at Omaha, and in spite of their
efforts to stave off the case for the
present are unable to do so and the
big cases are on in full blast. *
The horse doctor law passed by the
last legislature will not hold water,
is the decision of the courts. In a
test case that was made in this state
recently, the law was found unconsti
tutional and now any one can doctor
a horse or any other dumb brute with
out having to take out a license or
having to undergo an examination.
The official vote of Nebraska has
been presented to the people of Ne
braska in tabulated form. By it we
see that W. T. Thompson, for attor
ney-general, led in the race with a
majority of 17,241, with Norris Brown
next and State Superintendent Mc
Brien third. Governor Sheldon was
well down the list, but has 12,973 ma
jority over Shallenberger.
Down at Dorchester, this state, the
other da\ a liquor dealer was assessed
a heavy tine under the anti-treating
clause of the Nebraska liquor law.
paid the line and hastily decamped.
This is something new in Nebraska,
and if tines were attached to all such
fractures of the law. it would cause
the dry bones to rattle promiscuously
in about every town in Nebraska—
except, of course, Loup City.
The expenses of the candidates for
representative and for county attor
ney show that It. H. Mathew expend
ed the sum of $78.87 to land him in
the county attorney's office, while
E. A. Brown yielded up $11 to for
ward his aspirations and entitle him
to hold dow n a seat in the lower
house of the Nebraska legislature.
Carle McKinnie smote his exchequer
to the tune of $12.75 during the cam
paign. while It. P. Starr only reached
in his trousers for $7.35 to the bad.
; The Northwestern has not yet tiled
its expense account.
A letter from Bob Jenner, who is
making his home for the winter on a
wheat farm near Los Angeles, says
the lawlessness at San Francisco is
something tierce at present. He
stopped over there a few days and
avers that hold-ups and sand-bagging
of victims occur daily, night and day.
to the number of fifty or more, arid
on principal thoroughfares crowded
with people these thifcs occur daily
and with the utmost daring, while
the police seem powerless to prevent
or stand in with the thugs. A nice
condition of affairs, truly.
Don't scoff at the souvenir postal
card craze. It has been given the
endorsement and hearty approval of
Postmaster General Cortelyou, and as
a matter of fact it furnishes the
government with a most profitable
form of mail matter. In order to
keep the profitable fad from dying
out, the Postal Service has issued an
order providing that all such cards
may bear written messages on the
front, the right half of the card being
reserved for the address, and with
sufficient postage they will be trans
mitted under the post card rates to
foreign countries. The order goes
into effect March 1, 190", and the post
cards will be treated alike in both the
domestic and international mails.
The Aurora Sun man last week
turned his small calibre batteries on
the Northwestern because forsooth
we called “Judge" Edgar Howard of
the Columbus Telegram a much over
rated man. in fact the most over-rated
of the few democratic editors of Ne
braska. so far as our knowledge went.
Had J»e been acquainted with the
Sun man. we might justly have said
"the writer of the Aurora*democratic
paper excepted." The Aurora baga
telle evidently has that fellow feeling
which makes one wondrous kind and
proves he is the sort of a jackass on
which Edgar iias ridden into fame, if
so it may be called. Now Edgar, the
"Judge.'’ should retaliate and help
the Sun ma,n to become known out
side the confines of the little village
in which he attempts to run a "news"
The Omaha Bee's state capital cor
respondent says that it is now planned
and it is said the plan has the san
tion of Governor-elect Sheldon, to
have introduced and passed by the
legislature during the first fifteen days
of the session all of the bills covering
the points set out in the republican
state platform—the anti-pass bill flrsu,
with the emergency clause attached:
a bill to make the freight rates in
effect January 1, the maximu m charges
to be made by the railroads; a separate
bill giving the railway commission
absolute power to reduce freight rates,
with the emergency clause; for the
taxation of railroad terminals for
municipal purposes: the direct pri
mary bill, and other planks of the
platform. It is thcnght down hereby
those who want to carry out the plat
form. that thj bills will be prepared
bj.ore the legislature meets ana that
they will be submitted to Mr. Sheldon.

The Grand Island Independent says
that one day last week workmen re
moved an old wood pile in the rear of
the Keohler hotel. The work had not
proceeded far when it became evident
that the abiding place of many rats
was being disturbed. Two good rat
dogs were secured. It wasn't long be
fore something was doing. Rodent
after rodenf, appeared. There was a
quick dashJ a snarl and a shake and
Mr. Rat was no more. Some of the
rats got away but after the slaughter
w as over there were 468 dead rats pil
ed up in a pile 8 feet long 3 feet wide
and nearly a foot deep.
