Wahiiinoton. D. C April 21,1891. EniToit Wf.ai.tii Makeim; I have been informed that somo of your correspondents have mentioned me ns their clioico for tho olllco as Unitod States senator, f dofliro space in your pnper to say to my friouds that under no clrcumstnnco will I permit tho ubo of tny name ns a candidate for sonator. My decision wao mado known tosotuo of my friends mnro than one year ago, nnd it will not bo changed. This is no hasty conclusion; it was reached ufler n cart ful considorntion of my duty to the pop ulist narty of our stnto. which hua with in its ranks many earnest and able men, nny of whom would do honor to tho ntato if elected senator. I am, pir, yourB for victory and right, W. A. MoKf.ioiian. From tho nbovo wo should judge that our congressman wno laying tho wires for congress ngain, inasmuch us Senator ial honors are isomowhat remote besides uncertain. By the tlmo snow tiles again new legislators will bo elected, and they will be republicans too, nnd Sonator Mnndoreon wdl succeed himself again Soo! Tin: Old Woman. Of ull ungallant epithets that some men use In spooking of 'tho wife of thoir bosom," none por haps is more often used than "tho old woman." Young married mon soon form tho habit of this woman oulturo and think it smart. "Dear Angelina" and "Molly Darling" only hear thoir pot niuncs for a short time when "hubby" win iiuurcsH mo porinnio or tho com munity as "Old Woman." Tho wifo Boon beginB to think that sho is growing oiu nnu one ny ono or nor youthful ohnrms disappear, and ore long that brightest vivacity that "would raise mor tals to tho nkies'f is gono, and in its placo tho effervescent spirit of discontent tnkos its place. Once ho whb wont to address her sb "my angol of tho golden trepscs." but'now ho calls Per "oldeorrel ton." Wonders "why she has changed po!" while ho in all lovo and affability, kicks tho cat into tho cream jur, and is off to town till midnight, jimt to moko tho "old woman hot." As a gonoral thing this class of men who hnvo "old woman" on tho brain aro chronic grum blors and fault llndors. If tho recent froozo froze his potatoes, why! tho "old woman" is to blame, he didn't want to plant for n month yet. If tho rate hnvo eaten up his pood corn, ho will saddle mo oiniuo on tho "old woman." Ho will persist in buying tho cheapest grudo of Hour in order to Imvo an oxcusotoblumo mo "oiu woman" for not having bread Un to tllO lltlinilliril nf n "Vintlnnr l.mf " If he is a republican, ho blames tho "old woman" for hard times and tho dofeat of his party in 'tvj. if ,0 jH democrat, tho "old woman" is responsible for the McKmloy bill, tho low prices of corn nnd tho hog cholera. And "when life's iltful fever is over" and Satin invitcB him in to his engiuo room, ho will say, "Well if it hndn't been for tho 'old woman,' I'd boon on tho cupola of parodiso. Will some of our scientists invent an "old woman" currwind bring the millennium! Tho pessimist no doubt would dread the cure, but "If right mokes might tho world would bo better for it."

Wo have read about wars of various kinds, local wars, tho war of tho rebel lion and the rebellious war, and Red Cloud baa had qui to a sufficiency of tho latter during the last to days, During tho first of April, tho City elected now officers ntnong them a mayor, Hon. W. B. Roby. A month later ho took his seat in tho council chnmber. Things went swimmingly on until tho nnnolnt- menta wero mado, and then tho rebellious war commenced. Ono of tho learned council objected to thoproccoduro. Tho mayor did not nnmo tho candidates, but allowed an nldormnn to do so, when up jumped an aldorman, nnd in flowing languago denounced ilia Honor In no uncertain terms. Tho mayor thought ho know his business, but tho war wont on, two aldermen voting for tho nomi nation and two against, and the mayor caBt the dociding voto in favor of tho nomlneo and tho war wont merrily on. Thon another appointment was mado. This did not suit tho pooplo although tho council confirmed It, nnd n gront doal of incendiary talk was indultrcd. and tho war went on. Tho council final ly adjourned to mcot again on Monday ninht. It convened nnd nbout ono hun dred and fifty citizona gathered them rclves togothor at tho council chambor to see tho fun, and tho wnr went on. Finally His Honor, convened tho coun cil. Tho clork road tho minutes. Tho first thing that camo up was tho approv ing tho bond of Harvey Vincent ns water commissioner. Aid. Potter jumped up nnd began n Senator Allon speech on tho subject. Ho gave a great deal of ox- parto testimony on tho subject of ap pointments, and several times drew forth great applause His Honor cnllcd him to ordor, but llko the boy on tho burning dock "Ho would not loavo his post," but kopt on in the oven tonor and sometimes doop boss way. Finally a voto wne called on the bond, and tho wnr wont on, and so did Aid. Pottor. Ho said.

About 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon the mayor called another enccinl meet ing of tho council and appointed Harry Pond as wator commissioner, which wns confirmed. Now ns far as this paper is concorncd wo think tho wholo proceedings aro out of ordor and much of it a disgrace to tho city. It does not look woll for business mon to resort to such measures in order to mnko n littlo notoriety or political capital. Tho peoplo elect thoir repro sontatives to do business for thorn and thoy expect them to do it or resign nnd lot tho vacancies bo filled by men who will. That Citv Water. For tho Inst fow yoara wo havo hoard a gront deul nbout tho city water. Wo havo beon lead to beliovo thnt good water could bo secured by spending money upon tho bottoms at tho presont location of tho pumping station, nnd nsfnr ns it goes, tho water is all right, but it does notgofuronough. Up to tho present date tho wells havo cost tho city in tho neighborhood of $7,000, and what hnvo wo to show for it? If tho money during theso years had been properly expended in nrtesian wcIIb thero would bo plenty of wntor Bat horo comes spring nnd before it is fuirly begun the foul creek wntor hns to bo lot in, impregnated with all tho tilth that naturally finds its way to tho creek, Wo prcsumo tho nldormon woro honest in thoir purpose, but it does look liko a wnsto of money to search attor wator whoro thero is none, and keep sinking monoy in tho ground without Bomo good result. If thoro can bo no bettor water produced, tho city ought to at once, tako off all rates nnd allow tho peoplo to havo the wator without cost as it is an absolute robbery to ask ono to pay lor uuen corruption as comes irom tho creek. If tho water wnsproperly filtered it. could bo used, but in its pres ont condition it is nn outrage to ask tho citizens to pay for it. During tho win tor tho wator was oxcellent hut things hnvo chunged now, and tho other is tho case. Tiik BEAUTirur. Hu.ls. When ono Btops to think, ho comes nnturally to tho conclusion that thero is no othor statu liko Nebraska, and not nnothor city as hnndsomoly located ns Red Cloud. Sit uated on almost a 1000 hllls,shocan sur vey thousandsof beautiful farms in ovory direction. On tho south are tho beauti ful greon hills dotted with farm houses nnd industrious farmers. On tho west, north and cast with handsomo IiUIb and dells, thousands of groves und other beauties of nature. With her grand Republican river and clear creeks sho stniids proominently abend of any other Nobrnskacityforapluco to build a homo nnd livo in happiness. Red Cloud ro coivod hor nnmo from tho famous old Sioux Chiof, Red Cloud, und if tho early Bottlers had hunted tho dictionary over fora numo thoro could not havo been found ono that so admirably fitted thesur roundingsof our city. Then tho salu brious climate, tho delightful evenings, tho gentle summer breozos all go toward makinga man satisfied that helms at lust found a local puradloo. A Fkauii On last Saturday, Sunday nnd Monday, numorouB tramps visited this neck o' tho woods, soliciting monoy but not work. Ono follow struck Hon Potor Shea for 2Ti conts. Poto told him thut his exchoquor was minus that amount, but thut ho would got him a breakfast. So thoy meandered towards J. O. Lindloy's cafe (not calf.) Horo Poter told tho '-boss man" to give tho "Nomad" a lunch, nnd thon it was dis covered that tho chap had just had breakfast. Such aro tho trinls and vic issitudes of life. Wlion you want to do charity, you frequently find you aro im posed upon by ungrateful humanity, llowovor, thero nre many who aro de serving and should bo cored for, accord ingto thedivino injunction, "Inasmuch as yo havo dono it unto the least of theso yo Imvo dono it unto Mo." A (loon Wkli, Tho city dads ought to hiro Donnls Lindsoy to put down nn artesian well. Ho has machinory to put a well down 1000 foot, hih! Tiik Ciiiei" boliovoB thut it would bo a paying in vestment, and wo also beliovo that ho would put it down at almost coat. Ho has just complutod a IWr. foot well for Mr. (irillltliB on tho Jno. Barber west 80, and has a fine well of 2."0 foot of wa ter. Ho struck n fine gravel bed at that depth and thinks that tho well cannot bo pumped dry undor any circumstances. In going down ho bored through !100 feet of bolid rock. If ho could gut so good a well of water thoro, ho certainly could got ono us good or bottor in Red Cloud. The council should investignto if. If tho 87,000 that has boon spent for wolls and othor ofTortB to pot wntor had been used in getting artesian wells, wo would not now havo to depend 011 mixed water for a diet.
