The currency bill promises to bo

Probably nothing will bo done

It is hardly possible that legisla

there is soon wound up.
Gov. Poyutcr found it necessary
tri explain his Thanksgiving procla
mation. The reason is that ho is
the iirst governor that Nebraska
ever had that stooped so low as to
inject parisan politics into a Na
tional Thanksgiving Proclamation.
The approaching campaign over
shadows everything else , and around
it hangs the Philippine question
and others of importance , and both
parties in congress will act with
their bust skill , with the view of

There is without a doubt , a wide

1 he tendency of wages is up
ward. With factory owners strain
ing evorv facility to keep up with
the brisk demand for goods which
hai accompanied the return of
protection and prosperity , wage
earners naturally come in for their
share m the allotment of increased
profits. Several hundred employees
jjj of the Tontoosuo Woolen Mills , at
Pittafield , Mass , , have been noti-
ji lied that a five per cent , increase in
f their wages will go into effect No-
vember 1. The 138,000 mill opera
tives at Fall River are moving to
secure a general advance of ton per
cent , in wages , and with excellent
prospects of success , as the cotton
weaving industry is now in a highly
prosperous condition. American
Free Traders continue to insist that
wage earners are in no way bene
fited by protection , but the facts
are against them.American Eoon-
Governor Poynter appears to bo
suffering from a violent attack of
militariuphobia. Ho exhibited
symptoms of it in his Thanksgiving
proclamation and in his utterances
regarding the shooting by soldiers
pf A deserter be has another attack ,
Whether Uifl men who did the
shooting1afo to bo held answerable
to the ciVil law is a question which
can well bo determined without
casting any aspersions upon the
men in the army. They have done
nothing as yet to warrant the asser
tion that they are attempting to
subvert the civil law and have cer
tainly been much more moderate
and discreet in discussing the af
fair than the governor. Bee.
This oflloo has always boon an
admirer of Rev. Irl B. Hicks. The
frequent criticism and remarks that
have appeared from time to time
in our exchanges have therefore
pained us deeply however , wo are
foroiid to admit than Mr. Hicks
has failed to strike center and has
not grasped the situation in his No-
vc tnbor prognostications. The
weather promised us for November
should have boon very stormy , un
der the combined influence of vulcan -
can , blowing great clouds from his
busy , clanging forgo , and mercury
"tho sleet god. " It was to be a
month of "wild and wooly" storms ,
and old Boroas was to walk abroad
with icicles a foot long hanging
from his populistio whiskers. The
horrors are Illustrated by a pioluro
of a farmer in a field of corn , while
thick cloudtt roll and mix themsel
ves up over head , and Mr. Hicks
says , "such farmers have delayed
matters too long. " The fact is
there was never a bolter time for
husking corn , then the last No
vember for many years , Our faith
iu Bro. Hicks is pretty well rooted
and grounded , but such actions on
his part are liable to knock the
"pops out from under us" and let
us down with a thump-
of Nebraska Vote.

Bible In Public Schools.
Ono of the school directors of the
Gage county district has asked
State Superintendent Jackson if ho
would restrain a teacher from reading -
ing the Bible or ainqing religious
songs before her 'class. ' Mandamus
proceedings were recently institut
ed in the district court at Bealrioo
to compel the school board to dis
continue the practice of reading the
scriptures at the opening of school.
Superintendent Jackson rendered a
decision in favor of tbo Bible , there
being ; nothing in the laws of Nebr
aska to prevent a simple reading ,
without note or comment , or recit
ing the Lord's prayer.
About six months ago this paper
characterized the raising of' a fund
to buy a house for Dewey , as a peice
of rank foolishness , and then advised
that luo scheme bo dropped , the
money bo turned to the donors , and
that if he needed a house , Admiral
Dewey purchase it like any other
American citizen. As usual , our
advioo was not taken , and a general
rumpus is the result. Dewey got
the house. Ho very innocently
made tranffor of it to his wife ,
whereupon there went up a howl
from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
The admiral got angry , declared
that he wished ho had never fought
the battle of Manila , and that ho
had half a mind to throw up the
old house and go and live in some
other country. The following re
marks , from the Drover's Journal
hits the nail on the head.
"The people who inaugurated
the scheme of presenting Admira
Dewey a house were misguided
the admiral , in agreeing to aooop
it , was misguided , when he made
that hasty transfer he was mis
guided ; and when the people jump
ed onto him roughshod over th
matter , they were misguided , I
was a piece of fool business from
1 start to finish , and very small busi
. . aVLO" < * li ! : V5
ness nt thati As a rule mercurial
pcaplo who are ready to make an
idol of a hero and to shower at him
contributions ho doesn't nocd , are
the very first to turn and rend him
when ho shows by some email ,
thoughtless action that ho is human
after all. To thinking sensible
people Dewey was no god when he
was on his tliumphal return from
Manila , and ho is no devil now that
ho baa got mixed up with the people
ple who think a 10 cent subscrip
tion to a fool fund entitles them to
forever after keep a string on the
dime. " Callaway Courier ,
After a Djiutf Altai's Shoes
The Nebraska Populists are al
ready quarreling over the BUOOCB
ion to United States Senator-Elect
layward , whoso death is likely to
occur at any time. For the Bryan-
tea to defer washing their political
men until after Mr. Hay ward's
iinoral would strike the average
American as more decent. But
> orbaps the ordinary canons of
rood taste are hold not to apply to
Editor Gilbert A. Hitchcock of
the Omaha VVorld-Horaid is openly
seeking Mr. Ilayward'o place. Ex-
Senator W. V. Allen , who was de-
'oatod for re-election by Mr. Hayward -
ward , would also like to break into
the Senate again. It is also utatod
that Governor Poyntor is willing
to resign in favor of Lieutenant
Governor Gilbert , with the agree
ment that Gilbert shall thrn make
Poynter' Sonatoi. Of course , Mr.
Bryan , too , is mentioned , as ho al
ways is when any office is in sight
Hitch rests hia claims on the services -
vices of the World.Herald to Bryan
and Bryanism. Allen thinks ho
ought to go back to the Senate be
cause ho has been there before and
was the candidate of his purty be
fore the last Legislature. Bryan
is said to bo keeping out of the
fight between Hitchcock and Allen ,
It is intimated , however , that Bryan
may bo compelled , in the interest
of harmony , to accept the Sonator-
ship. Poynter would probably
feel compelled to appoint Bryan
Senator if Bryan should request
the place , but bo doubtless will not
request it , for ho has other aims in
Bryan's political plans are suffi
ciently well known. Ho expects
to be renominated for President
ezt year by the Populist Demo-
ratio party. Ho can harlly hope
o bo elected , but La does hope to
hold Nedraeka and to secure the
lection of a Bryanito Legislature ,
lo then would become a candidate
o succeed Thurston , whose term in
bo Senate will expire in 1001.
'ho change of the Sonatorship as a
onaolation for his failure to reach
bo Presidency has undoubtedly
> een the animating force of Bryan's
eoent political activities.
The death of Mr. Hayward will
loprivo his state aad the country of
an able man who would have been
an efficient Senator. The situation
resulting from his loss should teach
ho Republicans of Nebraska and
other iBtates a lesson. With little
exertion in 1808 - the Nebraska
Hopublioane could have won the
Governorship as well as the Legisla
ture. Out of a total vote of 190-
057 Poynter's plurality over Hayward -
ward was only 2,721. The republicans -
publicans , with a majority of 13 on
joint ballot , were able to elect to
the Senate tboir defeated candidate
for Governor , but they did not
secure a republican successor 11
such a continonoy as has now
ariflou , Thus the will of the
people of Nebraska , as expressed
their present Legislature at its last
session , that a republican should
represent them in the United State
bonate , is dofnated by the concur
ring accidents of death and a
Populist Governor. The forme
accident was beyond human fore
sight , but the latter was not. Such
accidental defeats of the pecplo ,
will tench the necessity of a polit
ical party's using its utmost en
deavora to elect all the and no
sacrificing ono part of to anothe
part. Inter Ocean.
