EniToit 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
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 "
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. "That n bond thnt timl bnon
changed without tho consont of tho sur
eties was invalidated," nnd he was right.
Tho bond wub not approved. Hero Col.

Now ns far as this paper is concorncd

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

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

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

Btops to think, ho comes nnturally to tho
conclusion that thero is no othor statu

A Fkauii On last Saturday, Sunday

this neck o' tho woods, soliciting monoy

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
