The average annual gold yield
of the world for the last ten years
has been $32,000,000.
The question with the Nebraska
democracy is “what shall we do
with this young man Bryan ? ”
And the echo answers, “what can
you do ? ”
Hon.Edward Rosewater thinks
that Hon. John Thurston’s silver
views are absurd. It might be of
interest now to hear John’s opin
ion of Edward’s silver view’s.
The McCook Times-Democrat
is bellowing for a congressional
candidate “with a spine as well as
brains.” Well? What’s the mat
ter with Andrews? He has the
brains and Col. Deitrich the spine.
Jack MacColl seems to have a
pretty good following in the west
ern part of the* state. It looks
like a neck and neck race for the
gubernatorial nomination between
Tom Majors and the man from
The experience of those eastern
coal barons and others with their
foreign laborers cannot draw out
one tear of western sympathy.
Men who import that sort of labor
ers for the purpose of forcing down
American wages are not entitled
to much consideration.
The assassination of President
Carnot of the French Republic
will cause sorrow and indignation
throughout the civilized world.
Anarchist Santo's dagger did the
cowardly deed, Sunday night, as
the president was on his way to
the opera house in Lyons.

troduction to this popular cormo
rant, and he was quite taken with
the clever, genial Church’s fetch

because he had left his horns, and

The McCook Tribune says that
“four more years for Grover and
then it will be all over.” We don’t
grasp the meaning exactly. Will
Grover be all over or will the four
years be all over Grover; perhaps
in four years it will be Grover all
over with the same unanimity that
it was in 1892?—Hastings Demo
Politically it will be all over
with Grover. Commercially and
financially the country will be in
it all over—in the soup.
The annul cry is now going up
that our assessment laws need a
general and thorough reformation.
To be sure they do need the jag
cure, and everybody knows it, but
our law makers seem to be very
shy about tackling this outrageous
ly rotten system. Why, the ques
tion naturally arises? There
should be a state law absolutely
requiring under the severest pen
alty a full value assessment. This
would increase Nebraska’s valua
tion by millions, though the
amount of taxes to be raised would
remain the same. The per cent,
would of course be much lower,
and the basis more just and equit
able. Will the next legislature
do its duty in the premises ?
The investigation of New York
city’s police has uncoveied a depth
of infamy absolutely unimaginable.
It has shown that the police of
the metropolis annually receive
from houses of ill-fame, unlicensed
saloons and other institutions con
ducted in violation of law $20.
000,000 for so-called protection.
It has developed the fact that the
police appointments cost the ap
pointees $500,000. Such bound
less corruption and unfathomable
infamy do not seem possible in
this Christian age, and shows more
than ought else to what immeas
urable extremes men will go to
satisfy their selfish greed for gold.
This condition of affairs is not of
course confined to Gotham, but
prevails measurably in all our
cities. The system needs chang

The national republican league
meeting at Denver, this week,
adopted the following regarding
the silver question: We believe
in the use of gold and silver as
money metals, maintained on a

will be a permanent return of pros
perity to our country until the full
use and highest position of silver
shall be restored, and we favor
such legislation as will bring about

Protestants and Catholics in
Chicago have united in a petition
to the board of education asking
that a reading book of selections
from the scriptures be prepared
for use in the public schools. The
petition recites that the whole re
ligious world unites without ob
jection in the universal prayer,
“Our Father, which art in Heaven,”
and that right-minded Americans
will agree on the daily reading of
suitable selections from the script
tures in the public schools, fixing
in the minds of the children the
“vital, spiritual principles on
which good citizenship and the
future welfare of the country so
largely depend.” Here is a move
ment that is destined to spread
over the whole nation. It is dif
ficult to find a single objection to
the 00,000 Chicago petitoners.
Considered as literture alone there
is nothing more perfect than por
tions of the sacred scriptures. It
is impossible to gather more in
spiring matter for the daily reading
of pupils than selected passages
from the old and new testaments.
Books containing these selections
properly classified for school use
are already in existence. Their
