Genial Calhoun of the Lincoln
Herald goes to Tampa, Florida,
for a year at least, if not for aye.
You can drive a four-in-hand
through the rent in the Democratic
party made by the president's veto
of the Bland seigniorage bill. Great
is Grover and his veto.
President Manseelde has sent
out notices that the date of the
meeting of the StateNebraska Med
ical association has been changed
from May 8 to May 1.
Whether the successor of Gov
ernor Orouuse shall be a republi
can depends solely upon the action
of the republican state convention
in placing in nomination a man
who will command the united re
publican support. The elation of
the fusion democrats is considera
bly premature.—Bee.
After the slap administered to
the attorney geueral by the su
preme court in the decission upon
the state depository law, it might
have been expected that that func
tionary would do all he could to
expedite the suit that was insti
tuted to determine the legality of
the law requiring the investment of
state school money in the outstand
ing interest-bearing state warrants.
Perhaps the attorney general is
waiting to be again admonished
by the court as to the performance
of his duties.—Bee.
Another decision has been
rendered ip the United States
courts in Louisiana against the
insurance department of the
Knight of Pythias, which will
probably end all future efforts to
defeat the collection of policies
upon the lives of persons who com
mit suicide. All policies contain
a clause declaring them void in
case the person insured shall com
mit suicide. The courts have re
peatedly decided that suicide is
an evidence of insanity, and as in
sanity cannot be set up as a de
fense neither can its manifestation
or development—suicide.
In the death of George Tichnor
Curtis the United States loses one
of the most eminent constitutional
lawyers and one who has taken
active part in the various move
ments for political reform since
the war. Mr. Curtis’ great legal
ability was doubtless traceable to a
legal bent in the Curtis family,
his brother Benjamin having at
tained a place upon the supreme
court of the United States, while
he himself held several positions
requiring a high order of legal tal
ent. Fortunately he has left a con
siderable literary legacy to perpet
uate the work which secured for
him his extensive reputation as an
expounder of constitutional law.
It now looks as though W. E.
Andrews would receive the con
gressional nomination again in the
Fifth district. The Gazette be
lieves he is the logical candidate
of his party, and is perhaps as
strong a candidate, if not the
strongest, who could be selected.
His campaign two years ago was
a clean, manly and able one, and
in defeat he left the party in a
condition which has required no
apologies or a regret except the
single one of his defeat He is
stronger today than he was two
years ago. and nothing but the
intrigues of the'j&liticians will de
feat his nominatipn.if he wants it,
for the masses are for Andrews.—
Minden Gazette.

Some one who is trying to play
a practical joke on Mayor Brewer
gives it out that he is laying the
wires for the congressional nomina
tion. This, too, in the face of last
Tuesday’s Waterloo.
“The Hon. Silicia S. Coxey,”
say8 the New York Sun pleasantly,
“is a compound crank of 82,000
ass power dragging an advertising
cart, and the Hon. Carl Brown’s
head is a shell without partition.”
At the solicitation of friends,
M. J. Abbot, editor of the Hayes
Centre Republican, will be a can
didate for the nomination on the
Republican ticket for the office of
Commissioner of Public Lands
and Buildings. The newspaper
fraternity has never had a repre
sentative on a state ticket, and if
the Judge were placed thereon the
“boys” would have a staunch friend
at the front. He is an able worker
and a capable man, who “never
turns his back on a friend nor to
an enemy.” He is now serving
his second term as county judge.
Southwestern Nebraska is entitled
to recognition on the state ticket,
and no worthier candidate can be
presented than Judge M. J. Abbot.
—Beaver City Tribune.
Organized labor has risen slow
ly, but with a calm, steady rise
like that of a leviathan who, when
risen, is not to be easily overthrown.
It has not risen with a precipitancy
that would argue that its basis
was unstable and was not likely to
endure the siege of capital and
capital’s minions. It has arisen
out of the very hearts and brains
of the best and most earnest work
ers in the cause of labor that the
world has ever produced. It is
not a vision or an erratic scheme.
It is not a mirage in the desert of
social freedom and brotherhood,
but a reality that will bear good
fruit and bring fresh, cool water
to the lips of the wayfarers in the
social half-world.—New Bra.

They made a bow with the other
piece and put it in an envelope.
The boys bought the en velopes and

According to a decision of Judge
Caldwell the United States govern
ment will run no railroads at a
loss. It has no surplus funds to
devote to tlmt sort of philanthropy.
Those who are so anxious to see
the government take hold of the
railroads and run them all might
as well take notice of this decision.
Under it if the government had
all the railroads in the hands of
the receivers a good many of them
would cease running trains at once.
