If oithor Admiral Sampson with his
licet frcdh from tho destruction of the
fortifications in tho harbor nt San
Juan, Porto Hico, or Commodore
Schloy, with tho Hying squadron,
which is itching for a chance to (lis
tiuguiah itself, can meet and tight tho
Spanish Capo Vcrdo fleet this week tho
end of tho war will bo in sight, l'hcro
is no doubt that cither Sampson or
Schley can crush tho Spanish fleet, if
they can only get at it, but there is a
doubt about their getting at it. Tho
Spanish fleet has been piny in g now-you-see-it
and uow-you-don't-seo-it. It is
now thought to be trying to get to
Cuba without lighting cither of our
big fleets. If it succeeds, tho war will
be considerably prolonged, and that is
evidently what Spain desires, in tho
hope that if tho war is prolonged some
other European power will gut mixed
up in it. Owing to tho superior .speed
of the vessels composing the Spanish
fleet, they will have tho choice of light
ing or running should they be met by
either of our fleets. The most formid
able lighters in both our fleets the
monitors and bnttlo-ships aro too
slow to keop up with the Spanish licet,
if it desires to run awav without light
ing, it is only a qusetlon of time when
every ship in this Spanish fleet will bo
oithor captured or destroyed; if thoy
light our fleet it will be immediately,
if thoy got into a Cuban harbor it will
bo u matter of n few weeks. This
week will tell which.
Tho blockade of Cuba, which during
tho past few days has been accom
panied by some stirring lighting
which wo got tho best of, besides cut
ting two important Spanish cables,
will bo continued, but the lauding of
tho ai my in Cuba has been postponed
until after the Spanish fleet has been
A very distinct reminder of the civil
war is the more or less active, although
of cotir.-tf, not open criticUm of the
civilian .it till" appointments made by
President McKinley, which Is heatd
among army ollicers ami their friends.
Among the appointments especially
criticised as having been made solely
because of social influences are tho
following: John Jacob Astor; who
knows nothing whatever about military
ntTairs and some say very little about
anything, to bo inspector general with
the rank of lieutenant colonel; James
G. Bltiluo, who has tried and failed in
about as many things as possible, and
who doesn't know enough about tactics
to be a corporal, to bo assistant adju
tant general with a rank of captain;
Russell 1). Harrison, whoso escapades,
business and otherwise, doubtless add
ed many gray hairs to his father's head
to bo assistant inspector general with a
rank of major; Charles 11. Miller, whoso
appointment is duo solely to his father
being an old friend of tho president;
Fred W, Alger, who is the mmi of a
soldier, Secretary Alger, and who
makes his military debut as assistant
adjutant general with u rank of e.ip
tain; (j.Cruightou Wubb, closely con
nected with the Vauderbill family;
John A. l.ogau, whom the governor ot
Illinois declined to make a colonel;
Lloyd Carpenter (iriscom, sou of tho
president of the American Steamship
line; J. It. Forukoi, Jr., son of Senator
Poraker; Latv. Audor.iou, ,i social swell
of Washington, and Hush Uuidukopur,
a Newport veteriuary surgeon, all of
whom have become captains or majors,
Ami mnjoiity of the stall are regular
army ;Hicers a few grccnics sue not
likely to impair its work.
The democratic senators, some of
whom are very much in favor of an
nexation, decline to make the annex
ation of Hawaii a party question, but
then is a movement a Jiang members
of the party in tho house, to which has
been leported favorably a joint resolu
tion providing for annexation, to hold
a caucus for tho purpose of trying to
commit the party to opposition to an
nex ullou. In view of the sentiment of
the country on the subject such action
would bo very poor politics.
The war revenuo bill was so oxten
lively amended by tho senate linauce
committee befoio it was reported to
the senate that It is really a new meas
ure. The amended bill is far from
satisfactory to tho tobacco interests,
which were not pleased with the
doubling of tho lax on manufactured
tobacco from six to twelve cents per
pound because it increases that tax to
sixteen cents per pound. Tho propri
etary medicines and toilet article mak
ers are protesting and saying that the
stamp tax on their wares is too great.
Tho representatives of tho brewers aro
not saying much, because they have
gotmoio iu the bill as it now stands
than they expect to have when tho bill
is passed, and thoy legard it good
policy to keep mum. Tho striking out
of the bond clause by tho committee
has not alarmed tho administration.
It was expected from the committee.
It is understood that a majority of sen
ators aro pledged to vote to restore tho
bond clause. So confident are treasury
olllciuls that this will bo done that they
aro going right ahead preparing the
printed blanks that will bo needed in
distributing tho bonds. The provis
ions for issuing 9150,000,000 in green
backs, and for issuing $42,000,000 iu
silver certificates iu advance of tho
coinage of the sciguorago on tho silver
bullion owned by the government, aro
not likely to bo in the bill when it be
comes a law.
Small grain never looked better.
Grass is getting good and stock can

Flossio Deakln, youngest daughter of
Ruv. and Mrs. Deakln who died at her
homo in Cowles, Nebraska Tuesday
May 17-03 after an illness of only a fow
days was born iu Shrowsburg, England
April 1st, 18S0. Sho camo to America
with her parents when two years of ago
and 1ms dwelt In Cowles for about four
years, t lossio has gone from our midst
and her going lias left a vacant placu
not only iu the family circle but every
where in our little village where her
presence has mtido sunshine. Flossio
was a leader among her playmates and
greatly loved by all. The funeral took
placo Wednesday from Congregational
church of which her father is pastor.
The church was tilled to overthrowing
with sorrowing neighbors and friends
who had come to show their love for
tho little one and sympathy tor the
parents, brothers and sisters. Kind
friends tilled the church aud covered

We can but sorrow now and yet with
tho pain still there comes a joy to know
that thu dear one shall never more
know sorrow or pain but till is joy aud
she shall some day meet her loved ouos
at the gate.
Considerable diseudoii is being par
ticipated in us to whether "Phil
lipine is spelled with a single or dotibl
"1" but we think since Dewey knocked
a little "I" out of them one is enough.
The Superior Journal says, "A ciazy
man was picked up on our streets
Tuesday morning." That's nothing
new for Superior. We have heard it
reported by people who have stopped
there between trains that crazy folks
in great numbers infest the shouts
of that hamlet. Give us something
new. Tho gravel walk between tho
depot and the main part of town is a
good thing (?) this wet weather, for
small boys who go barefoot and carry
sling shots, but older people think very
difl'ori nt. If our farmers and eitiei.s
intend to patronize till the shows that
visit Bed Cloud this summer they had
better ask Loiter to send tho price of
farm cereals up u little higher. The
community is sullerlng cousibcrably
with kidney disease, however before
thu tho "three mouths for a dollar
treatment" purchased on our streets
this week is all taken no doubt it will
bo improved. Madrid is cooling down.
While defeats are still counted as vic
tories nothing further has been said
about tho satisfaction of Spanish hon
or. So much rain lias fallen iu tho
west part of tho state that the fast
trains havo to slow down for fear of
sliding off the roadbed. Our creamery
plant presents somowhat of a dilTcrcnt
aspect these mornings as compared
with tht mornings a few short weeks
ago. Tho farmors of this section must
bo prosperous. Peterson has sold over
eighty buggies among them sluco the
middle of February, mostly for cash.
Tho heavy wind and light hail last
Tuesday did considerable damage to
tho fruit crop. It has been discovered
that Dewoy is a red hot republican.
No woudor ho was so successful. Tho
towu of Cavite, recently bombarded by
Dewey, should be changed to Cavity,
iu remembranco ot tho hole in which
tho Spanish fleet dropped. A fow
buildings on tho cast sido of Webster
street would look considerably better
if they wero elevated to tho grade.
No talk as yet of a Fourth of July cele
bration in this city. The probabilities
are the tiro department will remain in
blissful ignoranco of tho celebration
this year. The weather has finally ar
rived at a genuine spring basis and
gardens are humping themselves, so
aro tho weeds. The volunteer com
pany will march with the G. A. H's ou
Decoration Day. There aro a number
of lawns in this city which look as neat
as a parlor, and there aro still others
which could be considerably improved
by a llttlo work. There are people iu
this vicinity who wish they had not
been told that there was nothing to
hold up the price. Modern Woodmen
