first seven bills presented in the

Americans to sit in the executive

SECRETAKY-OF-STATE ALLEN has
retained ex-Secretary Cowdery as
his assistant for the present.
IT looks very much as though
Mr. Ingalls would be his own suc

ACCORDING to the reports of the
mercantile agencies , the failures
in Kansas in 1890 summed up
§ 4,500,000. This amount was
nearly double the losses in 1889.
THE newspapers who gave cur

Gov. Thayer is "a raving maniac"
are guilty of an act which will con

GEORGE BANCROFT , the venera
ble historian , died at "Washington ,
Saturday , at the ripe old age of 80
years. He was ill but three days ,
and his death will be a shock to
the whole country.
BARBED wire manufacturers held
a meeting in Chicago last week , to
form a trust , but after getting
legal advice decided to still contin
ue on their own hook , as the anti
trust lawproves too much for them.
ALL parties seem to have settled
down at Springfield for one of the
deadlocks for which Illinois is not
ed. The balance of power men
have the situation well in their
own hands , and it looks like a con
test of endurance.
THERE will be no security on the
frontier as long as the Indians ,
friendly or hostile , are permitted
to keep their guns. The govern
ment fully understand this fact ,
and failure to disarm them now
would be unwise and cowardlv.
THERE is one good thing about
it all , . .citizens of few other states
can point the finger of scorn at the
Nebraska legislature's wild pro
ceeding. Most of the states have
legislatures of their own which
are likewise indulging in a great
deal of unseemly hilarity.
REPRESENTATIVE MODI is to be
commended for his course during
the turbulent organization of the
"legislature. It may be said to his
everlasting credit that while many
of his colleagues were putting their
brogans into their mouths , Andy
was exhibiting his steady good
sense by silence.
KING KALAKAUA , of the Hawai
ian Islands , who came to the Unit
ed States some weeks ago in the
hope of benefiting his health , and
for the purpose of effecting ar
rangements for the improvement
of the financial condition of his
realm , died , Tuesday , inSanEran-
cisco. It is not uncharitable to say
that the dead ruler was not a hero
ic figure , and that his life was de
voted largely to the pursuit of
pleasure and to self-gratification.
The Appointment Hade.
On Wednesday of this week , Presi
dent Harrison sent into the senate the
nomination of lion. James P. Lindsay
of Beaver City , to be Register of the
McCook land office , vice Hon. S. P.
Hart , whose term of office expires on
the 28th of February. The appoint
ment is a thoroughly good one and will
be highly acceptable. Mr. Lindsay has
served two terms as a state senator from
this district with conspicuous ability.
He is a rising young lawyer , a clever
gentleman , nnd the office will fall into
good nnd capable hands when the ex-
senator assumes charge.
MODI is all right.
SENATOR KOONTZ is all right.
EEGISTER LINDSAY is all right.
CONGRESSMAN LAWS is doing
some quiet but hard work.
THE TRIBUNE is awaiting the
initial appearance of the Hastings
Daily Democrat with an earnest-
npss born of desperation.
MUCH talk has been indulged ii
by the press and pulpit of the eas
concerning the keeping open o
the "World's fair on Sunday. A
Chicago minister hns solved tin
question by stating that if the fai :
is held open on Sunday it wil
keep thousands of persons from at
tending worse places.
BECAUSE Mr. Thayer has vacat
ed the executive apartments in re
sponse to the order of the board ol
public works it does not follow
that he admits Mr. Boyd's election.
On the contrary he maintains vig
orously his original position thai
he ( Thayer ) is governor , and that
until the question of Mr. Boyd'g
eligibility is settled any executive
act by the latter is null and void.
Thayer's relinquishmeut of the of
fice does not , of course , effect the
proceedings begun by him in the
THAT eminent peanut politician.
David B. Hill , was Wednesday
elected to succeed Senator Evarts
of New York. The deal was car
ried through according to the ar
rangements made by the party
bosses without the slightest varia
tion from the published pro
gramme. The goods were wrap
ped up and delivered and the new
senator was made. No investiga
tion into the qualifications of Mr.
Hill to fill such an important posi
tion was made. The rank and
file of the party had nothing to
say. It was simply a business
transaction engineered for the ben
efit of the professional politicians.
New York is ostensibly under a
republican form of government ,
but in the trifling little matters of
electing public officers and saying
what shall be done with the pub
lic funds the people are "not in it. "
THE adoption by the house of
Mr. Shrader's resolution inviting
co-operation of the states west of
the Mississippi in the revision of
their usury and stay laws is a
move in the right direction. The
wisdom of this course is obvious.
If the usury and stay laws are re
vised in a manner to appear undu
ly hostile to capital , capital will
endeavor to retaliate by withdraw
ing from the state or states in-
which such legislation is enacted.
If Nebraska should be more arbi
trary than Minnesota , Kansas or
Colorado , investors and capitalists
would give them the preference
over Nebraska. If , however , an
Hgreemeut can be reached by which
all the granger states in the north-
\vest would enact laws that were
uniform as regards the legal rate
Df interest , penalties for usury and
right of redemption after foreclos
ure , the results desired by the debt
or class would be achieved without
bringing them into a conflict with
fcheir creditors. Bee.

Brother Carpenter has at last ren
dered an account of himself , during the
first days sessions of our highly riproar-
ious state legislature. We had been
creditably informed that the talented
editor of the B.-L.-F.-W. had gone
down to Lincoln after hayseed and ex
pected that he would distinguish him
self beyond regulation. But seeing no
special mention of him in the great
metropolitan press of this state we
thought he might have gone on down
into Kansas where hay is more abun
dant and preachers less numerous ,
else why had he not taken Sheriff Mc-
Clay by the nap of the neck and the
seat of his breeches and thrown him
over the dome of the capital. Why had
he not like the Le Noir Faineant at the
tournament of Ashby-de-la-Zanche
swung in at the supreme moment and
tied Meiklejohn and McClay in a knot
and stow them away under the Speaker's
desk. Imagine our surprise when
Richard himself steps to the front and
explains that while the storm was at
its highest he was calmly but firmly
making peace between two con
tending guardsmen. Shades of de

TO , BUSINESS MEN GMIIUI&
THE TRIBUNE is a zealous , active re
presentative of your interests and of
every worthy interests of the city. It
aims to give McCook one of the best
newspapers in Nebraska. From n finan
cial standpoint it is doing all that it can
dote keep McCook where the city
rightfully belongs , in the very front
rank of the enterprising young cities of
the state. It is ever doing more than
it can afford to do. It therefore asks
the support of every business man , be
it much or little , in order that it may
continue during the coming winter
months to keep up its standard of ex
cellence that has been so frequently al
luded to and complimented by the press
of the state. It is common among
merchantH to discontinue their adver
tising , or nearly BO , at the begining of
the year , a mistake from a business
point of view and a policy of serious
import to newspaper business. THE
TUIBUNE , with the leading circulation
in the city , offers actual inducements to
advertisers , and believes that it can
make it appear to their advantage to
pursue a comparatively liberal adver
tising policy during the next ninetj
day. THK TRIBUNE can give you good
value for your business , and will there
by be enabled to promote your business
interests , and the interests of the citj
generally by means of support that will
make it a power for good in and for
