Lawyer James McNeny of Red
Cleud, would have no objection to
relieving Congressman McKei
ghan at Washington. To farther
this desire was evidently the im
port of his visit in our city, closing
days of last week. Ton have per
haps noticed the size of the yawn
ing cavity the average Red Cloud
politician has for pie.
The Jaffa-Jerusalem railroad is
a sort of international affair. The
concession was obtained by a na
tive of Jerusalem. The road was
built by a French company, the
engines and cars manufactured in
the United States, run over rails
made in Belgium, and the most
remunerative part of the passen
ger traffic is drawn from British
' tourists. _
The Bland bill for the coinage
of fifty-five million dollars of
seigniorage silver passed the honse
Thursday by 164 to 129, a major
ity of 35. Fifty democrats voted
against it and nineteen republicans
for it. All the populists voted for
it. The south and west furnished
the votes for the bill, while the
east was solid against it. This is
a reliable indication of the coming
lines of party division.
It is said that Rosewater is for
Cady for Governor and John Da
vies for attorney general. If so,
he for once deserves to win his
fight. Cady is a fanatic in some
things, a most uncompromising
republican, and objectionable in
being a believer in bounty and
tariff, but he is honest and not
afraid. So is John Davies, and
with those men in office there
would be no stealing from the
state. But there is no hope of
the republicans ever nominating
such men.—Lincoln Herald.
The new plan of the elevated
road in New York City is to build
a second track above the old one.
This is the scheme proposed by the
company, but it is safe to say that
nothing beyond promises will be
attempted until there is a riot or a
semblance of one. No other city
in the country would have suffered
so long and patiently under the in
conveniences and abuses of the
transportation system. But New
York is notoriously apathetic is
the matter of public improvement
and facilities, and exhibits on its
principal thoroughfares dirty and
rickety cars and stages that would
not be tolerated in the ordinary
country town. As long as public
sentiment is not unmistakably and
forcibly defined, so long will the
corporations do as they please in
this the “best governed city in
A New Yobk judge enunciates
the doctrine in a decision denying
the claim of a woman to marital
relationship with a defendant in his
court that “words of endearmenl
in love letters are never to be taker
literally; the extravagant use of
such words therefor cannot be held
to conclude the defendant to theii
literal meaning, even if he did
write them.” Won’t this establish
a cloak for men to hide behind
when love affairs get too worm!
How can susceptible women relj
upon anything a man may write
to them if his words of endearmenl
are not to be understood in theii
literal sense? The rule of inter
pretation here laid down will tend
to make love missives synonymous
with deceit It is cruel for a couri
to juggle thus with the recognized
instrument for conveying expres
sions of admiration and affection.
4 CURIOUS DECISIOR.
The decision of the supreme
court in the depository law is
rather curious, not in itself but in
the results that will follow. The
decision of the court in effect is
that the educational funds of the
state are not current funds; that
is, funds coming under the provis
ions of the law requiring them to
be deposited in approved deposit
ories, which will leave but about
four funds to which this will ap
ply. The court holds that the ed
ucational funds cannot be deposit
ed in the banks, as that consti
tutes a loan in direct contravention
of the law. They must be invested
either in United States or state
securities or in registered county
bonds. The inevitable conclusion
is that Mr. Bartley must keep all
these school funds in his vault in
the capitol. This is jumping from
the frying pan into the fire with a
vengeance. Mr. Bartley objected
to allowing these funds to be de
posited in state depositories where
the state could get three per cent
interest for the reason that it
would deprive him of that amount
or interest as ms perquisite as
treasurer. It ought to be appar
ent even to a supreme court that it
was never intended by the legisla
ture that the treasurer should keep
a million dollars or less in the
vaults at the state house, where it
would have to be guarded night
and day; neither was it the inten
tion to give the treasurer a large
sum for speculation or upon which
he could realize personal profit
The Omaha banks announce their
intention to begin action to com
pel the treasurer to withdraw these
funds from the banks where they
are drawing interest far the treas
urer and put them in the vaults,
where the supreme court says they
belong. It is to. be hoped that
Treasurer Bartley will obviate this
embarrassment by investing the
permanent school fund as the law
provides, in the state warrants now
drawing 7 per cent interest, and
cease the senseless quibbling over
legal technicalities that do not re
bound to the reputation of officials.

It is remarkable how very oddly the

A petition is being circulated among
land owners of this district, the object
being to open a road which will be
more convenient for those living north

Mr. Cashen and boys will work the
Cain plaoe, again this year, also the
old Wilcox farm, making, in addition
to his other places, about 470 aores,
which will be put into crops this season.
Where land is plenty and cheap it
would be folly to crowd things, or at
tempt to have the neglected garden
and fruit patch all in one. It is much
more convenient to grow fruit and veg
etables in separate plaoes.
The more or less strikingly handsome

An agriculturist says that one reason
why boys leave the farm is that they
are not educated in rural tastes. Agri
culture is too often made a slaving
business instead of an elevating pursuit,
where skill is highly esteemed and sci

The year gone by was not a good
one for raising chickens, yet North
Divide has one family who managed
to raise over 700 of these feathered
customers. Good care and wise man
agement in this department of the farm
is sure of large gains.
In building dwelling houses, farmers
should plan not only for beauty and

Friday last. Appropriate exeroises

is not often the case.
A very pleasant party of young peo
ple gathered at the home of A. F.

time was pleasantly spent in games and
other amusement until a late hour. An
elegant and appetizing repast, whioh
savored largely of better times, was
partaken of by those present.

bnsiness, with the exoeption of the last

are unable to dispose of last season’s
crop at the present prices.
