Having mot defeat by the nuaim-
anco of the demociatH , the Chief
would give them the grand bouneo
( \vhou they ask for roproBontition
on their uounty ticket ) by joining
with Painter in advocating the doc
trine of the middle of the road ,
hoping thereby to carry enough
votes that were formerly populibtn
to oleot the county ollhtora next
fall , and thereby hold onto the
public toat. But vro predict , oven
at this ouly day , that the Hohomo
BO transparent to the taxpayers of
Caster county , that they will not

to provide phvoon for a few poj

deserves 'ho respect of the public
when its ambition in to porpottiato

from ouo base or party to another
for the solo and evident aim ot se
curing spoils at the expanse of the
commonwealth , they douorvo urn

The fiiHioiii tH who nm now wor

Huetn to realize that their defeat if

Hrjau on Ills Defeat.
In an urtiulo entitled "Tho Elec
tion of 1900 , " in the Daootnbor
North American Kovtow , Mr. Uryau
atteiuptH to give reasons for his
defeat. Ono is the alleged use of
money.1 ' As the popular plurality
it ) over 800,000 , the largest on
record , the so-called "colonization
and purchase of votes" must have
boon conducted on a ooloHsal scale
A majority of 137 electoral votes
would look like foolish prodigality
buying. Shifting the point of view
Mr. Bryan remarks that "tho fear
of a ohanuo is merely a political ex-
prcpsiou of the conservatism whioh ,
to a greater or loss extent , exists in
every person , " It is oorlninly true
that a majority of the American
people prefer existing prosperity to
an uncertain chase after something
better. Common HOOBO would bo a
belter name than itotiAorv.ttism for
this fouling. Every linij n practical
man tan against tliu portonliotin
"Void if ! ulootod "
phrane , J3ryan H ,
ho realized the altitude that had
been t'ikon by mun of the coolunl
buiineds jiidgauient , and that oven
a grain of doubt can disturb the
grunt currents of national trndo.
Mr. Bryan denies that the ropub-
limn party has had anything to do
with prosperous conditions. But
from the day of the election there
was a grant upward bound in tlii )
markets. The sweeping nature of
tlio defeat was rolloctud in an un-
oxpuclod degree of general activity ,
and the wave in still mounting and
spreading. The boom instantly
followed a great reptibliuan victory ,
and it is vain to dispute its cause.
It was not duo to good crops or the
increased prcduotion of gold but to
the assurance of continued republi
can control of nil departments of
thogovornment , and n moHtomphatie
reassertion of the principles tli\t an
American dcllar must bo the equiv
alent of 100 cents everywhere
throughout the world. Mr. Bryan
liibists that the election of 11)00 ) wan
not decisive on the money question.
A popular plurality of 000,000 in
1890 , iml of 800,000 in 11)00 ) will
convince nearly ivorybody olsu that
the United States will never go into
the business of money debasement.

There is a general hope that the
republican caucus will bo hold and
the senatorial fight disposed of
before the 15th of January , the time
for the joint session , in order that
necnesary legislation may not bo
So far rs the state in general in
concerned , there is no great demand
for legislation at the hands of the
coming session. The uuedof anew
revenue law is renognized , but the
difficulty of passing one id also rec
ognized. Attempts along this line
in the last two sessions failed.
Two years ago the fudioniat otli-
oiali , although all elected or ap
pointed on a platform demanding
small salarius , came before the leg
islature and asked for increases.
Under their atreuuoui representa
tions many of the state house depu
ties received larger salaries than
had over before bnou paid. Tun
incoming republicans will reap thu
biueiit of thia example , but no
doubt they will bo criticised by thu
fusiouistrt for desiring to keep the
salaries at their present figure.
It is conceded that this move is
quite a proper one. They will feel
at home. Nearly every one of the
whole crowd of lenders lived south
of Masou and Dixou's line before
they came here to "reform" Ne
braska. Now they have concluded
thai the wintore are lee cold iu ibis
latitude , and that it is too hard to
manipulate elections.
The now attorney general will
inherit : v number of buncombe law
suils against starch factories and
other instiUiticiis , and it in not
beyond the possibilities that the
Smyths and Oldhams will ask to bo
allowed to nibble at the public crib
until these ouita are disposed of. A
long-haired attorney general who
has maintained a private ottioo in
Omaha and allowed the stale lo
shift for ilsolf excepl during politi
cal campaigns , may declare himself
to he indispensible to the settlement
of these campaign law suits , The
new attorney general , however ,
may decide that an official who uses
hair oil externally and an tx deputy
who uses it iutprnally will bo ol
little assistance in these suite.
'I ho pretended contest against
Dietrich to prevent him lakiug his
seal has fizzled out. The fusiouists
know that the cane was a hopeless
one , and bolides , the dieappoaranet
of certain of their campaign funds
has given them troubles of the !
own. There is well-grounded SUB
pioiou that high moculs of the
fueion crowd uaed up the funds to
bet on the election. Now , whil
they aooane each other , the legili
rniUo I campaign expenses remain
h unpaid. It ts bolinvcd that this
interim i ! quarrel has only just begun ,
and i that before the colony leaves for
H Oklahoma there may bo Homo
startling developments Under the
circumstances < the leform leaders
will go pietty slow about their < 'on
test , nnd will ning low thu song of
the lisa and abuse of campaign
iundp. "
