The State Press Association
will be in session at Lincoln, the
The senate has refused to con
firm the appointment of Judge
Hornblower as one of the justices
of the United States supreme court.
Ex-Governor J. H. Gear is the
choice of the republican caucus of
the Iowa legislature aud will be
Senator Wilson’s successor in the
United States senate from the
The indications of the times are
that we are entering an era of
lower wages, aud doubtless it is a
matter of more than curiosity with
the wage workers whether the cost
of living will be decreased pro
portionately, and what the per
cent, of decrease on official sala
ries will be.
The York Times admits that
destitution and suffering exist in
that city, but insists that this con
dition is not the fault of the rich
people of that city. What kind
of poor people do you have in
York, anyhow, Timotlieus? Are
they God’s poor, man’s poor, or
are they destitute because they are
not energetic and provident
enough to be otherwise? There
is plenty for all, but why should
it be possible that a large family
must live on $1.50 a week, earned
by a woman at the wash tub, in
any spot in Nebraska, or in free
America, for all that?
The State Journal states that as
soon as two or three tardy county
superintendents send in their re
ports the December school appor
tionment, (which should have been
sent out on January 1st), will be
forthcoming. What reports, pray ?
The December apportionment is
based upon the same reports the
May apportionment was, the April
census. Why the necessity of re
ports, when no reports are due?
But the Journal is, of course, bet
ter posted than its sly excusing of
the delay would indicate. The
schools need the money urgently,
and it occurs to us that the treas
urer ought to get his feet under
him and his cash in hand, and the
December apportionment should be
forthcoming instanter, if it has not
gone out at this writing.
Among the somewhat startling
remarks made at the recent Jack
son day festivities in Omaha by
Editor Hitchcock of the World
Herald were the following: “Laws
for the enrichment of the few at
the expense of the many, no mat
ter under what pretense, have uo
place in civilized government, and
least of all in our land of freedom.
The bloodiest revolution and the
most terrible political storm
known to history were the direct
outcome of au attempt in France
to maintain side by side in the
same nation a privileged class at
the expense of the people. The
Frenchmen would not stand it,and
much less will the Americans en
dure it. Strangely enough, the
French revolution followed closely
upon the heels of the glorious
reign of a French monarch, under
whom the apparent prosperity of
France was so great as to win for
the period the title of the Augus
tine age of French history. But
so unequally were the fruits of
that wonderful prosperity distrib
uted that the people in a bloody
revolution wiped out the decrees
which created the privileged and
unprivileged classes among
The Veterans at Bartley.
James Laird post,G. A. R., held
its annual public meeting at Bart

evening. There was a large attend

a memorable day. , The hall was

The opening devotional exercises
were led by Judge 0. W. Beck of
Indianola, after which Commander
J. E. Hathorn made one of his
happy addresses introducing the
Hon. Tom Majors, who discoursed
in his usual popular vein to the
delectation of his appreciative aud
ience. Tom nlways carries the boys
with him on such occasions.
The audience was delighted by
the music furnished by Rev.W. M.
Taylor and family, Trank Hodgkin
and wife, and W. W. Lemasters.
A pleasant social time closed the

few days ago. He is one of the
enterprising farmers of Bed Wil
low county. His fine herd of grade
cattle, horses and Poland China
hogs, with his extensive cribs and
granaries filled with corn and
wheat, will convince any reasona
ble person that farming in Bed
Willow county is uot a failure.

It will be a difficult feat to successfully dodge

Eli Perkins, who is a vestryman in an up
town church, in the absence of a Sunday
school teacher, kindly offered to take her
class in the Sabbath school. After teaching
the class four w'eeks Mr. Perkins was pre
sented with a Bible by his class. People can
draw their own inferences.—N. V. Tribune.
A saving of at least $800 per annum w’ould
result to the city if the present salaries of offi
cials were cut down to a reasonable point, or
one iiail what they are now' receiving. And,
if the lines were properly and legally imposed
and collected, our school treasury would be in
much better shape. McCook is ripe for some
reformation in municipal matters.
We hear it mentioned that the mayor would
like to be a member of the school board. We
regret sincerely that a person cannot be mayor
and member of board of education at one and
the same time. The mayor is properly con
stituted to create more trouble on the school
board than perhaps any man in the district.
But we surely cannot dispense w ith his ser
vices as mayor, next spring. The thought is
To thoroughly prepare himself for his lec
ture on “Fun and Fact in Japan,” Eli Perkins
rode 12.000 miles and spent six thousand dol
lars. 1 Ie went all over China and Japan with
a kodak in one hand and a pencil in the other.
While traveling he wrote syndicate letters to
fifty newspapers. Since returning he has
about finished a book on Japan, llis lecture
besides giving all the fun of the Orient, teems
with valuable information. At Menard’s
opera house, Tuesday evening Jan. 23d. Seats

Get There, Eli.
“Get there, Eli!” The by-word, “Get there,
Eli!” originated with Eli Perkins twenty years
ago. His frantic trips through ice and snow
and flood, often crossing the whole length of a
state on a special train to fill a lecture engage
ment, suggested to the boys the expression.
