The Battleship "Nebraska."
Tho following by one of Webster
county's best known citiens, is taken
from the Daily Stato Journal of Wed
Guidk Hock, Neb., May 10. To the
Editor of tho State Journal: Seeing
that patriotism is running at "high
tide" and every citizen of tho state is
exceedingly anxious to do soinothiug
to show his loyalty to his country and
contempt to its foes, and that it is im
possible for tho United States to uso
ono man in lifty of those- who are do
sirous of going to war, I have a sug
gestion to oiler through jour valuable
paper, which if acted upon favorably
will give us all an opportunity to do
something for ' country. Tho gov
ernment needs warships moru than
men and probably will coiitiiiuo to in
tho future, especially f Uncle Sam
should conclude to hold the l'hillipinos
which wo are all in fivor of his doing.
In that ovont or in any evert, a pow
erf ul navy will bo a necessity to the
United States in the future. My prop
osition is that the peoplo of the state
of Nebraska should raise by popular
subscription a snflloiont sum of money
to buy and equip a liisl class battle
ship which should bear the name of
our . state and present the name to the
United States government.
Now when peoplo are soverynuv
ions to show their patriotism anil do
something for their country, 1 am in
favor of giving them a chance to re
lievo their exuberauco of spirit, and
from 5c to 10c per yard more for carpets sold from samples.
Saxony Axministers, large line samples, cut and
the nbovo plan would give us all a
chance to do that with credit to our
selves and honor to our country. We
old fellows who put in our best licks
from '01 to 'O.'i don't liko to bo left out
now, nud I don't believe there is a vet
eran in tho state who would not give
a mouth's pay towards such an enter
prise, and hundreds and thousands of
our citizens who never .saw service will
do tho same. A war ship, built by our
people and named after our state
would be a source of pride to us long
after tho war is over. If our enter
prise is successful our example would
doubtless bo followed immediately by
other states. Undo Sam would soon
havo a navy equal to any nation on
earth and largely the free gift of his
own patriotic children.
This matter is alrcadj being talked
up among the veterans in this part of
the state and will be imuieiliately
brought to the attention of tho Grand
Army posts and other organizations.
1 would suggest that Tho Journal set a
date for a meeting in the city of Lin
coln next week, where an organization
can be peifeeted in time to bring the
matter to the attention of the Decora
tion Uay orators, so mat they can In
turn diiet the attention of tin people
to the matter on Decoration Day. 1
feel at liberty to believe that The Slate
Journal will use its best ell'orts to for
ward this enterprise.
Yours very truly,

When the shells of destruction aimed
by sle.idy Aiin-riean hands, hurtled
against the ill managi"! ship, and foils
in .Manila harbor, they did much more
than lamago the laggaid Spain, they
did much mote than endear Dewey to
our hearts, they did much more than
add another to the world's deeds ol
cool courage; lltey hoarsely sent around
the world a proclamation. It was that
the American heart is once neue one
and indivisible. Since the days of 'ii,i
when the people "beat their swords
titt plow s'lares and their speais into
pruning hooks," theie has lieen needed
just Htteli a strong wielding inlliieiice as
the present Minlliel lumake the sulfa e
unity of national life a unity in deepest
truth. The unity is here. North to
whole some nidged opponent to seces
sion still imagined dangers in the
southland, South to where eiiiually
sturdy anil brave men spoke an occa
sional explanatory "If," West to the
states whoso majorities were strong
against the east whose interests they
misunderstood, East where maritime
bias and vast commercial interests
sometimes foster an apparent pride
from the peaks of the Sierra Madro to
the ports of thoAtlantie, from the pines
of Maine to the palms of Flotida one
proud and united endorsement of De
catur's woids has gone up, "Our coun
try, may she over bo right I Hut out
country, right or wrong."
It is sad to 1)0 compelled to e.giuo
with Mr. John l'iske wnou ho says,
"The Spanish system of governlnont In
America WftS so thoroughly bad that
oven in tho bauds of saints it could not
have succeeded. It was based upon
tA'o bail things, commercial monopoly
and political despotism."
It is horrible to realize that a peace
ful peasantry has been slain to make a
desert and then call it "Peace" that a.
hopeless wail of prolonged agony has
gone up to tho quiet skies from a thou
sand times live hundred harmless
creatures to make a Spanisli triumph.
Hut it is blessed to bo able to say that
wo havo hoard and wo have answered.
Tuns, just a? with nil noblo causes es
poused, they bring thoir own sweet re
ward, and our reward has come, as I
pointed out last weok, in sinking re
ligious differences, and now in thrilling
us nil with ono spirit of kinship and
partnership in tho bravo deeds dono by
our navy and projected by our army.
Tlioso poor wretches who havo norved
us to striko at the rulers who havo fat
toned on misery, have brought us a
greater blessing than wo can bring
thorn, much though they need tho
food-ships nnd the clothing, tho sooth
ing and tho solaco of friendly regard
and treatment. Tlioy havo brought us
into vital union wo nro simply sotting
straight paths before their piorced foot.
It is thrilling to noto how old war
leaders on both sides thirty-live years
years ago havo olfered their sei vices to
tho government, and it is joy to noto
that tlioy long to light no longer faeo
to face, but side by side. This is a
grand time in our national history and
big with possibilities. Mark too, how
the colored men h.tvo shown thoir
eagerness to servo a country thnt is
their country too ami over likely to ro
main so. Then tho gifts of yachts
from tho wealthy for the mosquito
licet, of complete batteries of nrtillory
for the front, and so on tliiotigh lists
that tl.o telegraph has already made
known throughout the country. Even
those who in many eases have not yet
been adopted by us, wish to wage con
llict on our behalf because they believe

In the hearts of some there now arises
tho desperate hope for a dof ,.nfljvo Illlti

people. England yules tho eastern

terests are identical; their standards of

ono language, inherit ono Ij.'cratnrc
