Ihey do say that Tom Majors
has hud a bad taste in his mouth
ever since the Morton banquet.
There is oertainly nothing very
lovely or lovable about the Ne
braska penitentiary that men
should desire it.

There is getting to be a settled
long-felt-want in Southwestern
Nebraska for another railroad, the
feeling being especially strong in
Stockville and Hayes Centre,
Perhaps the most serious dam
age sustained by the Republican
party of Nebraska from the popu
list movement has been the turning
down of sundry unsavory politi
cians and would-be leaders, who
have been the cause of the good
old ship’s leaking so badly. Let
the process continue, good sirs!
Perhaps the most encouraging
and gratifying feature of the great
inpouring people to western Ne
braska is the substantial character
of the home-seekers; under whose
energy and thrift we confidently
expect to see this section prosper
as it never has since the settle
ment of the country.
The activity in farm lands in
Nebraska means a more prosper
ous condition of affairs all over the
state and will be especially benefi
cial to the cities and towns. The
cities and towns had a boom a few
years ago which pushed them
ahead of the country and it is im
possible for them to enjoy the pros
perity they should until the country
catches up. The present doom in
farm land therefore means much
for the towns and business men and
manufacturers can view the landed
activity with a feeling that it means
greater prosperity for them later
The princely bequest of $2,000,
000 to Harvard university by Gor
don McKay, a retired New England
shoe manufacturer, will prove of
great advantage to the institution.
Nobody has the right to criticise
such a gift, yet it would seem as
if a manufacturer, whose sympath
ies should have been with labor and
whose knowlege of the needs of poor
men’s sons must have been exten
sive, might have given a portion of
his large fortune to help the poor
boys who cannot go to Harvard or
any other great university, and who
are anxious to secure an education.
If the men who win their way to
affluence as manufacturers and em
ployers of men do not aid the poor
men’s sons in their efforts to rise
by placing opportunities before
them, who can be expected to do it.
The passenger men will hold
another conference on the question
of World’s fair rates in Chicago
on Friday. A disposition is shown
by some of the western agents to
oppose a rate even as low as fare
and a third, while others are will
ing to make one fare for the round
trip in order to avoid the under
handed struggle for business that
is certain to follow the adoption of
high schedules. It is certain that
the people will delay going to the
fair if the high rates are announced;
and the longer they refused to be
coaxed on the journey the more
auxious will the agents of the
weaker lines be to grant conces
sions that will start the business
with a rush. It may be considered
settled, therefore, that low rates
will prevail before the exposition
is three months old. It will bp
more comfortable for the public
and just as profitable to the roads
to have low excursion rates an
nounced at the very opening of
Senator Allen of Nebraska
comes out on top in the committee
assignments of the senate. With
the other three populist senators
he has been taken into the demo
cratic camp, given the chairman
ship of a committee which carries
with it a nice committee room and
a clerk and has been assigned to
the important committees on the
list. Senator Allen, by the reso
lution of today, becomes chairman
of the committee on forests reser
vations and a member of the com
mittee on claims, Indian affairs,
public lauds and meat products.
These assignments are unusually
good for a new senator and will
enable the junior senator from Ne
braska to participate in the formu
lation of important legislation.
Senator Manderson gives up the
pleasant committee on printing to
Senator Gorman. He retains a
place on the committees of military
affairs, on rules and Indian affairs
and printing and is made a mem
ber of the committee on national
banks. As a member of the com
mitte on rules he will have a good
committee room in the Maltby
Evangelist B. Fay Mills, who
is about to attack the citadel of
Satan at Milwaukee, requires an
advance of $5,000 before entering
upon the work of converting the
“Cream City.” This snug indem
nity does not at all invalidate the
doctrine of free grace. Salvation
is free but it takes money to buy
coal and pay gas bills and rent
tabernacles. Sinners mustbecom
fortably housed and properly shel
tered and must be tempted by the
creature attractions of light and
warmth before they will take the
message of truth into there res
pective hearts. It is true that $5,
000 seems a good deal of money
for “expences” but it would not be
quite fair to take in all the publi
cans aud leave Mr. Mills out in the
cold. St. Piul himself declared
that “the laborer is worth his hire.”
The official figures show that
but two Americans were natural
ized in England last year. This
is a surprisingly small number as
compared with the hundreds of
Englishmen who become citizens
of America within the same period.
The drift of population is quite
logically, from the old to the new
world, but the enormous balance
in favor of America shows that, in
dependently of the natural advan
tages which this country presents
to homeseekers, the love which the
American cherishes for his native
laud is stronger than that existing
among any other nationality on
The Montana legislature has
passed a law, which has been ap
proved by the governor, imposing
a fine of five hundred dollars upon
any scalper who may sell the whole
or any part of an unused passen
ger ticket. Such a law could not
be passed in any legislature not
owned by the railroads and no un
trammeled court would hold it va
lid for a minute. But people don’t
expect much of Montana.
The supreme court commission
was agreed upon Wednesday even
ing. The three gentlemen who
have been elected and who will be
formerly appointed tomorrow are
Hon. Frank Irvine of Omaha, Hon.
R, G. Ryan of Lincoln, and Hon.
John M. Ragan of Hastings.
Western railways have about
decided to make a twenty per cent
reduction on all World's fair pas
senger traffic. Canadian roads have
agreed upon a thirty-three and a
third per cent reduction. The
fact is, they all ought to make
one fare for the round trip.
Representative Sheridan is one
of the people and must be respect
ed, Brother Rosewater.
Won’t Rosewater make Sheri
dan’s hair curl, though!

the thought of putting
such Low Prices on
these Goods, but.
