Senator Currie Generally Endorsed.
. _ _ - _ _
The Demand of the "Republican" for a ,
Western and an Eastern Man Com-
I mented upon Favorably.
Senator Currie has entered into
the onatorml contest in earnest ,
and will put forth every ponsible
legitimate effort to secure roco ui.
tioii for the western part of the
Dtato , along the lines suggested by
the Ilici'unucAN two weeks ago. A
number of the newspapers of the
Sixth congressional district have
joined the KHJ'UUUOAN m demand
ing recognition for the west in the
election of the two United States
senators. Among the number is
the Valley County Times , which
devoted two-thirds of a page in
advocacy of the election of Senator
Currie to the United Stater senate ,
along with other comments on the
subject , copied the article from the
REPUBLICAN in full. Wo arc relia
bly informed that the republican
members of the legislature from the
Sixth district , and several of the
Fifth district , favor the abolishing
of the North and South Platte
hobby , and will unite in an effort to
secure one of the United States
senators to be elected from western
Nebraska. There are a number of
the members of the legislature from
the eastern part of the state who
recognize the justness of the claim
of the western part of the sla'e ' for
recognition , ara will lend their
support to the accomplishment of
the end. What others have to say :
Why not 1st the live stock in
terests of the state be represented
for one term at least in the uppei
house of our national law makers ?
Hon. FM. . Currio ia the man to
make the representation Browstor
Senator Currio , of Ouster county ,
will have a good many votes for
United Statcu senator , especially
from the western part of the state ,
and if the caucus should have a
long drawn out seancehowould bo
in a position for standing a fair
chance. Goring Courier.
We heartily indorse all Bro. Barks
has said in the above clipping , an
Senator Currie is truly a man of the
people ; and the work he did in the
last legislature proves him to be
one who has ability to fill the office
of U % 3- Senator from Nebraska ,
one who could and would find a
place in the front ranks of the lawmaking -
making liody.-iNorth Loup Loyalist.
Hon. F. M. Currie IP a scholar
among scholars , a broad man among
broad men. lie ia the only man
who could have broken the fusion
grasp on his senatorial 'district.
Lot us have him for U. S. Senator
aim thus aecuro Nebraska in the re
publican ranko. We urgohineleo.
tiou , not because of local pride , but
for the good of the state and country.
The more our people study Mr.
Currio as a man , and our political
ituntion , the more they will recog
nise tht wisdom of making him
their choioo for U. S. Senator Sar
gent Loader.
F. M. Currio is as able i man as
is to bo found within the borders of
the state of Nebraska , admirably
fitted to prove a shining light in
the chief legislative body of the
nation. Should ho be ohoien ne
ono of the Htato's representatives. .
It is reported that thy Chinesa
government has accepted the joint
note of the powers.
While the populist papera of the
county are boasting of the county
getting out of debt under their ten
years of administration , they fail to
note that the county had credits
enough loft by the republicans
when they went into power , to have
paid its indebtedness. With that
to their uredit , it has taken the pop
oilioialH ten years to put the county
on a cash basis. An ordinary school
boy , with the means at his disposal
that the pops have had , might have
accomplished as much in half , the
ho will , from point of scholarship
and education , lose nothing in com *
parisjn with any man who had ever
occupied thut place from our slate ,
if , indeed , there ever has bonn ono
who had the advantage of an early
education equal to his. As to bis
native ability , honor , party loyalty
and general fitness , h.s public and
private record best speaks. Valley
County Times.
Lot every newspaper ot north
western Nebraska come to the front
and a demand he made for the re
cognition of this portion of Nebras
ka , in the way of national represen
tation. No better man , in any re
spect , can bo found for the place
than our candidate , and ho would
give to the state a representation
that each man might feel proud of.
His record from a point of honesty
and ability , would be an envious
one. Let thn people of the whole
state know that this section wants
F. M. Currie for U. S. Senator , and
that the stalwart republicans who
have stood in this storm-centre
while the wave of populism swept
past , are entitled to something hand
some. Arcadia Champion.
The sentiment favorable to the
election of F. M. Currio as one of
the U. S. Senators to 'be chosen
next mouth , appears to bo growing
stronger as the time for the opening
of the legislature approaches. All
over the state Mr , Currio in recog
nized ae a possibility in the coming
senatorial race , and it is generally
conceded that in case of a look , up
among the 60-oallod prominent can *
didates , ho has a show of success
The eastern portion of the state
does not appear to concede , how
ever , that the western portion ia
entitled to ono ot the senators , and
no delegation from Missouri river
territory will accept a western man
except as acompromiso. The west
ern delegates ought to stand to
gether as one man for Mr. Currie ,
who can bo elected if. they insist
upon it , Callaway Courier.
There has never been a time in
our country's history when scholarly
statesmanship was more needed
than at present. Political cunning
and intnguo can have no place in
upholding the honor of the repub
lican party in the solution of its
present problems. Men who h ve
been trained outside of all party
combinations to look fairly and in
telligently upon public questions
are the ones who can render the
safest service to the country.
Nebraska has such men , and
among them can bo found no one
who combines all the present re
quirements of statesmanship in a
greater degree than Hon. F. M.
Currie , Ho is a thorough republi
can , a tireless worker and a man
whose ability is exhibited in strong
er proportions as duties devolve
upon him.
If the republican party of this
state wants a man who can reflect
the greatest honor upon our people
and giv Nebraska a proud i coord
in congress , lot the legislature elect
lion , F. M. Currie for United States
Senator Sargent Leader.
The Nebraska Press Association
will hold itH annual mooting at
Omaha January 22d and 23d.
The city council of Omaha has
offered 135,000 for the arrest and
conviction of the kidnappers of
Edward Oudahy Jr.
Three dollars a day is not to be
picked up every day , and the old
members of the board , with their
clerks , whoso time expired the first
of the year , should not be censured
too strongly for holding onto their
job until ousted by the now board.
It may he the last soft snap they
will got for borne time , and they
propose to make the most of it.
The 1'ast Ccnlurr.
In looking backward upon the
century junt closed , wo view with
amazement and gratification the
most wonderful achievements in any
like period in the history of man
The slow plodding meUiodn used
at the beginning of the onntury just
closed , eem inciediblo when com-
pared with the modern appliances
of today.
The spinning wheel and hand
loom used by our grandparents to
furnish clothing for the family , has
boon supplanted with powerful
machinery , that enables ono mill to
manufacture more cloth in a day
than was possible by one person
under primitive methods in a life
time. The shingle , when made at
all , was blocked out with a hand
frow and afterwards dressed to
proper proportions with a draw
knife , with the manufacturer
sitting astride a wooden horse. A
few hundred shingles was the result
of a hard day's work , where now ,
by the use of the machinery in
vented by American genius , ono
man can make thousands in an hour'
as easily as he could have made
dozens in a day at the beginning c f
the century. The improvement in
the manufacture of lumber has been
equally as groat.
The march ot progress has been
even as remarkable in methods em.
ployed in the homn and on the
/arm. The farmer then plowed his
ground with an ox and a wooden
mould board plow , and dragged in
bis grain , after sowing it broadcast
by hand , with a small tree cut from
the forest. The muzzled ox plowed
his corn , and with the hoe the weeds
were kept down. The whaat was
harvested with a hand sickle and
threshed with a wooden flail , and
carried to mill on horseback. The
corn was gathered and cribbed by
the use of a basket. A wagon was
unknown , and a sled was the popu
lar Damage on which wood was
hauled to keep up the winter fire ,
and on wnich were marketed the
pork or other products which the
industrious farmer might chance to
have for sale.
The cookicg was doue exclusively
on the hearth of the fire place , both
winter and summer , and exceedingly
fortunate was the housekeeper who
was provided with a crane attached
to the fire grates , on which to hang
her pots for cooking purposes ,
The needle has been supplanted
with the sewing machine , and the
knitting needles have become a
thing of a past. The stage coach
of half a century ago ban bion sup
planted by the ateam engine and
railroad , that by its system of trans
portation skips across the country at
the speed of a mile a minute , and
cariiea tees of merchandise from
oceau Co ocean at a similar rate.
The traffic on the ocean has been
no less wonderful in progress.
Electricity , which had not boon
brought under the control of man ,
is now ono of the moat useful agen
cies at hia command. By it mes-
snges can be conveyed around the
glebe in a few seconds of time
Machinery is propelled by its mag
netic touch , and human hfo may be
invigorated or extmguinhod by its
The great strides that have been
made in all kinds of machinery ,
manufacturing , printing , music , art
and science mark the closing cen
tury as the period of the most
wonderful and grand achievements
since Adam and Eve were placed in
the garden of Eden. Think of the
Webb perfecting prass , the typesetting -
setting machine , the eleutrio
oar , the'tolegraph , the woolen fac
tories , the wheat and corn harvesters ,
the threshing machine , the gang
plow and riding cultivator , the
telephone , and a thousand other
works of genius , and yon got a faint
idea of the world's progress during
the nineteenth century.
Wheu wo look back on the great
progress of the past century , and its
wonderful achievement ? , we feel
that the limit hae been reached , and
inventive genius cannot exoeid in
the present century the record of
the past. While with man it may
seem impossible , in the language of
Christ , with God nothing is impos
sible. We are his creature ? , and as
long as it is his good pleasure to
allow his children to remain on the

coniine them to the HUta rehearsal

of the penetrative power of the X
ray but meagerly indicates what is

covered , that would , bo useful to
man. And who knows but that in
the course of another l-undrcd years ,
methods for transportation through
the air may supplant the steam rail
way and electric earn of today , and
the telegraph may be succeeded by
wireless telegraphy , and by tele
pathy friends on opposite side's of
the globe may hold conversation
with each other. Such achieve
ments would not be .in greater
contrast with the methods employed

There will be some hard tights
in congress on the question of the
reapportionment of representation
in the House and the oleotonal col
lego. The plan reported to the
House by the CUIIRUH committee had
only one majority in the committee ,
and it is antagonized by several
other method ? , any one of which
may be substituted for it before the
measure passes the Ilouae. The
Senate , too , has several schemes of
its own which will be ready for ex
ploitation as soon as the House bill
reaches that chamber. Tim is a
question of high importance to the
whole country. There is a , chance ,
indeed , that tha measure may fail
of passage in this congress , accord
ing to some of the Washington gos
sips. The House oho-en : iu 1902
will have to bo elected on some
sort of an appoitionment bused on
the census of 1900. If none is
made by March 4 , next congress
may be called in special session to
provide one. Globe Demosrat.
The coming legislature will have
many problems to deal with , but
nothing needs "fixing" worse than
the revenue lawB of Nebraska It
will be a sweet day when a farmer
or stockman of western Nebraska
knows he is paying taxes on his
possessions at the same rates paid
by the properly owners of the east
half of the state. 'Ihero is only
one way to do it make the la.u so
rigid that it will bo as unsafe to as.
SOBS at less than actual selling value
