Tho Nobraska stato fair was a de
cidod success, both in tho matter of ex
hibits and attendance. If anybody had
any doubt about this a visit to tho
grounds was sutllclent to dlspol tho
doubt. Tho weather for most part
was not nil that could have been de
sired, nnd yet tho attondanco went
considerably beyond tho record, and
would undoubtedly Imvo been much
greater hud not heat and dust inter
fered. Forty thousand pcoplo are
credited with being on tho grounds
Wednesday, and at least 10,000 in ad
dition to this number on Thursday.
There was a lack of means of trans
portation, tho dust was not properly
luld, and somo other things were left
undone thnt should have been attend
ed to. Tho managers havo gained ex
perience that will enable thorn another
year to havo all matters arranged and
carried out in a satisfactory way.
The agricultural exhibit was tho best
ever seen in Nobraska, and this is nay
in? a good deal when it is considered
how many splendid exhibitions tho
stato has held. All tho various depart
ments wero full to overflowing, and
ovidence was present on every hand
thnt Nobraska is not only a productive
state, but that her citizens take prldo
and satisfaction In making It known
to tho world. Counties vied with coun
ties in elaborate displays, and all were
so good, so full and complete, that It
was diillcult to draw comparisons.
Omaha took caro of tho largo crowd
in a splendid way, making her claim
good to every protension previously set
forth. Tho city was brilliantly illum
inated through tho cntiro week nnd en
tcrtalnment elaborately provided for
tho thousands of guests within her
gates. Hands innumerable wrought
enchanting music on all sides, and tho
parades arranged for tho various even
ings wero up to expectations und drew
hundreds of thousands of sightseers.
Tho Nebraska stato fair for 1805 passes
into history ns one of the most success
ful ever hold, and if thcro was any
thing lacking tho experience that has
been gained will enable tho managers
to provide it in 181d. The fair has ad
vertised tho state's resources in a man
ner that will bring good fruit in groat
abundance in coming years.

havo been secured from bankers In tho
principal cities of tho country that In

upon to place up to S.IO,000,00() of gold
in the treasury in exchange for legal

bcon quietly negotiated by Messrs.
Belmont aud Morgan during tho last
Tho reasons which havo led to tho
action arc varied, but all tend to tho
bamo end. On tho part of the admin
istration it is recognked as good poli
tics to avoid another bond issue and
throw tho responsibility and necessity
for remedial financial legislation upon
tho incoming congress. It was deter
mined by tho president several months
ago that there would bo no bond issue
until after tho elections, as nu issue
previous thereto would havo tho effect
of strengthening tho hands of the free

On tho other side tho syndicate
wishes to avoid tuiy action which
would havo tho effect of checking tho

NO CUBAN RECOGNITION.
Tho United State Unlikely to Take Any
roftltlto Action tit rrencnt.
Washington, Sopt 18. Savo vaguo
newspaper reports, nothing is known
nt tho statu department of tho Inten
tion of any of the governments of tho
American republics to rccognlzo tho
belligerency of tho Cuban revolution
ists, and it is qulto certain that no
lonnai nppncatlon for such recogni
tion by tho United States has been
made. It Is not perceived hero how
the insurgents can reap any substan
tial advantages at this timo for such
recognition. Tho only comfort that
thoy would derive would bo from tho
moral effect of an assent by an Inde
pendent power to tho proposition that
they had assumed statehood.
As far as tho United States is con
cerned, it took such a pronounced stand
in tho caso of tho late Brazilian insur
rection that it could scarcely rccog
nlzo tho insurgents in tho caso of
Cuba at present without a complcto
reversal of its position. It has held
that, to entitle them to rceognltion.ln
surgents must sot up a seat of govern
ment and maintain it; that thoy must
issue money, and must possess a navy
to mako effectual nny blockade thoy
wish to establish in short, that they
must have an actual defacto govern

POLITICS AND CRIME.
rrofcaaor Warner of California Attacks
tliol'rcscnt rollce System.
Denver, Col., Sept 18. At this
morning's session of the national pris
on congress a paper on "Politics and
Crime," written by Amos G. Warner,
professor of economics and social bcI
enco in tho Leland Stanford university
of California, and read by John N.
Dryden of Kearney, Nob., created a
sensation. "If the stato itself is under
the Influcnco of criminals," wrote Mr.
Warner, "how can it hope to reform
criminals? Setting a thief to
catch a thief was an old-timo
doctrine, but tho plan of setting a
thief to reform a thief has never yet
been defended. Tho representatives
of tho stato with which criminals aro
most frequently brought into contact
aro policemen, police justices, sheriffs,
sheriffs' deputies and others only a
shade if at all better than tho crim
inals themselves. The hope for tho
euro of criminals largely lies in cura
tive treatment in tho early stages.
Petty offenders and those on tho verge
of criminality in tho largo cities sel
dom or never get beyond this lino of
guards, aud live moro or less in their
presence. The police to them repre
sent tho state."

CRN CURE ASTHMA.
A Leading l'hyilclnn nt Innt Dlnptivnr
The majority of sufferers rrorrr
Afithma and kindred complnlnts, after
trying Doctors nnd numberless Reme
dies advertised ns positive cures, with
out avail, have come to the conclusion
that there is no cure for this most dis
tressing disease, nnd these same per
sons will be the more in doubt and skep
tical when they learn through the col-
Umnn ft tlln tirnaa Hint Tif 1 n.lr.l.,1.
Schlftmann, the recognized authorltj,
who has treated more cases of these dis
eases than any living Doctor, has
achieved success by perfecting a rem
edy which not only gives relief in the
worst cases, hut has positively cured
thousands of sufferers who were con
sidered Incurable. These were Just ns
skeptical ns some of our readers now
are. Dr. SchlfTmann's remedy no doubt
possesses the merit which Is clnlmed for
It or he would not authorize this pnper
to announce that he Is not only willing
to give free to each person suffering
from Aathma, Hay Fever, Phthisic, or
Bronchitis one free liberal trial packago
of his cure, but urgently requests all
sufferers to send him their name and'
address nnd receive a package, abso
lutely free of charge, knowing that in,
making the claim he does for his cure
a strong doubt may arise in the minds,
of many and that a personal test, as he
offers to nil, will be more convincing
and prove Its merits than the publish
ing of thousands of testimonials from
others who have been permanently
cured by the use of his Asthma cure.
Dr. SchlfTmann's Asthma Cure," as It
Is called, has been sold by all drug-
ITtstS 6V(P llnrA It wna flraf lt.(M,1i.n.j
although many persons may never have
heard of It, and It Is with a view to
reaching these that he makes this offer.
This Is certainly a most generous nnd
fair offer.and all who are suffering from
any of the above complaints should
write to him at once and avail them
selves of tho same, as positively no freo
samples can be obtained nfter Oct. 10. Ad

A Wlm Choice.
A young lady in charge of the cap
tain of a P. & O. boat had t-vo suitors
on board and a pug dog. Tho latter
fell overboard and ono of her swains
instantly jumped after it into tho sea.
Tho other confined himself to leaning
over tho side and crying, "Poor dojr
gio!" When the rescuer came on board,
dripping, tho young lady turned to tho
captain and asked him which of her
two lovers, after such an incident, ho
would recommend her to take. He was
a practical man and replied, "Take tho
dry one," which sho accordingly did.

Tho cross of Christ Is tho key to
Everything God gives us to do needs

Christians get along faster when
they travel In pairs.
God's flro in tho heart soon melts all

Whoever takes Christ for a topic will

The better wo know the Bible, tho
plainer God can talk to us.
If we talk about Christ wo will never
run out of something to say.
It takes tho mm. wlio-.oarrleo-aoaB"
message a long while to get tired.
Many hear tho voice of Christ before'
they know who it Is that speaks.
Whatever Christ has given the church
to do, every Christian should gladly
try to do.

DAMAGES FOR LIBEL.
A Virginia Taper Hrought to Terms by
tho American Hook Company.
A dispatch from Norfolk, Vn.. snys:
"Tho American Book company of New
York has just gained a signal victory in the.
courts of Virginia and has received an ab
solute and complete vindication after a long
and exhaustive trial by special jury iu tho
Circuit court of this city. The l'llot news
paper of this city, upon tho awarding of
the contract for school books to the Amer
ican Uook company, printed a long article
written and prepared by 11. K. Byrd, an
agent and attorney forGfnn & Co., of New
York, in which it vas charged that tho
stato superlatendcut had been bribed by
tho Americnn Iloolf company. The l'llot
vas immediately sued for libel, und, after
a live weeks' trial, which created an im
mense amount of interebt throughout the
state, a verdict for punitive damages was
recently awarded, and tbo jury fouud that
the statements made, wero faho and a
deliberate lihol. Not only so, but the
company, upon uiiim oichable evidence,
was proved to havedeaJt bouornbly aud u
rightly in ovory particular in their negotia
tions with the stato ofllcials. It was furth
er proved at the trial that no better terms
bnd bcon mndo with auy othor state for
school bcois. In fact, the attorney-general
of Virginia stated that tho American Book
company 'seemed to throw open tuolr whole
business to us,' nnd after full and complete
examination of nil tbo original contracts
made with tho various Mutes bo expresbcd
himself ns absolutelv mtltfied thnt the-
prices were the same In all ca&es anil that
no discrimination whatever hod been modo
agaiust tho state of Virginia. Furthermore
be mentioned that none of tbo utatomenta
of tho American Book company ha1 boon
accented until every cuo of thun hud been
absolutely verified by diroct reference to
tho governors of somo fifteen states, with
whom contracts bad been made. This
proved conclusivolvtbat tho representations
of tho American Book company wero cor
rect in toto. This celebrated caso hag thus
ended iu a complete triumph in every re
spect for the American Book company, und
has shown In clear contrast the clean nnd
buslness-liko methods in which they carry
on their great industry ns compared with
the attempted uto of political pu:l and
mUstnteaeats by their opponents." CM
