Senator Dietrich has given out a
statement in regard to the Hastings
postoillco affair which has the ring of
truth and which, if substantiated in
court, will oxonorato him from the
chargo of bribery uow hanging over

appointments, but assorts there was
no agroomeut betwoon Thompson and

his election as sonutor His indorse
ment of Fishor for tho appointment of
postmaster at Hastings dates back to
the timo when ho was governor.
Tho Nation is going after tho city
administration with a sharp stick, and
hints at mismanagement of tho city's
tinancos. It docs look as though tho
tax rate Is abnormally high, In view
of tho very limited public improvo
monts, but tho present deplorable
condition of tho oity's financial affairs
is 'the result of a sorios of blunders
of former administrations. There aro
always plonty of pooplo ready to criti
cise the doings of public officials, but
when they aro askod to suggest a rem
edy for existing evils they aro nevor
able to point "the way out." The
greatest drain on the city's fluances in
recent years has beon the water works
system, but no one scorns to be able
to suggest a practicable plm for
placing it on a solf-sustuining basis
The columns of The Chief aro open
to anyone who thinks ho can form a
plan wheroby tho water works may be
kopt running and tho other obliga
tions of the citv met, and at tho sam

legal limit. It is tho opportunity of
a lifetime for tho man of brains.

you a dollar's worth of something in
honest oxchaugo; and this you call
Christmas giving. You think you have
properly thawed out.
But you havon't. No, bloss you, the
genial warmth of the true Christmas
spirit hasn't thawed through even the
frost rind on your heart.
If you want to have tho satisfaction
of realizing what it moans to thaw out

main thing yourself don't you?
If any mau wore to toll you that you
act tho brute uud tho bully toward tho
pationt woman who has brought you
niuo-tcnths of your joys and shared all
your sorrows, aud whom you lovo noxt
to your monoy, you would got florco
I about it.
But in strict contldonco now, be
tween you aud your conscience, don't
you swell up to think that you'ro tho
boss, that a look from you is u com
mand to her, that she must beg of you
piecemeal what you promised to lay at
hor feet? You know you don't treat
her as well as you did the day sho was
your bride. You lied to her. You'ro
a bully toward hor every day. You
