I ALEX. D. JohINsToN of Valley Grange Prec.
, , NEBRASKA should promptly follow the
example of New York state and repeal
I , , : her law which makes it possible for one
, i - to collect greater damages for a broken
leg than his heirs can get for his broken
neck There seems to be small equity or
, justice in such an anomoly.
Now comes Colonel Phillips of the
Indianola Reporter who deposes and says
il l i that Colonel Mitchell of the Indianola
Courier is not a fall-fledged Populist , but
a Prohibition-Woman Suffragist with a
1 transparent enamel of Populism. Butt
a t whither are we drifting , anyway ?
C -
i THERE is positively nootherinfluence
so potent in deterring men from misbe
havior of all grades , from petty vice to
' , infamous crime , as the popular consciousness -
sciousness that the newspapers , with an
aggressive moral sense , are inquisitive of
wrong doing and "sensational" enough
to publish the truth about matters that
concern the public well-being , says the
Seattle Telegraph Not even the fear
I :
' of the law's penalties is an effective deterrent -
terrent where there are no newspapers
with moral sense to turn the light into
every dark corner.
s says that registered state warrants are
not state securities in which the permanent -
manent school fund can be constitutionally -
ally invested because if that were the
r r intention of the constitution they would
have used the word "warrants" and not
. "securities" . According to the same
F logic , neither are state and county bonds
t within the scope of tlfe constitutional
t , provision because if they were the con-
9 I stitution makers would have used the
word "bonds" instead of "securities" .
x l And the attorney general prides himself
on his logic.-Bee.
H. H. TROTH , mayor of McCook and
candidate for state auditor , returned
home , last evening , Mr. Troth has the
honor of being elected mayor of Mc-
, , Cook , this spring , with onlyt one vote
polled againgt him. He has been a resident -
ident of Nebraska since 1871 and was
postmaster at McCook four years under
President Harrison , Mr. Troth was allowed -
lowed to select his own delegates from
C Red Willow county to the state conven-
tion. He has assurances of support
' from all parts of the Fifth district and
expects a solid delegation from the Republican -
publican valley.-Lincoln Journal , Mont -
t clay.
It Will be Swamped.
The ambitious attempt of the bosses
11 of the A. P. A. to advertise themselves
can party in the matter of a candidate
for president will only make them ab-
surd. The American people are weary
of that sort of secret society horse play.
The charge that McKinley , a member of
, the Methodist Episcopal church and a
' Republican from away back in blood and
. patriotism , favors the pope in politics
and appoints Catholics rather than Protestants -
testants to office , is so puerile and crazy
. that if the A. P. A. organization goes
into the campaign on it it is the association -
tion and 'not Major McKinley that will
be sivamped.-Lincoln Journal.
I , Will It be Necessary ?
Will it be necessary for Americans who
aspire to the presidency to procure a bull
' froii the A. P. A. pope granting them
permission to become presidential can-
didates-Omaha Bee.

One of the curiosities up here is a
horned toad , sent from San Bernardino ,
California , by Gertie Coleman. Its manner -
ner of locomotion is very different from
our native toads , as it walks and runs
but never jumps. Its make-up is different -
ent , also. It has eight horns on its head
about a half an inch long , and it has a
tail about three inches in length. Its
body and legs are a counterpart of our
native toads. Minus the tail and horns ,
it looks just like a common , every-day
Nebraska toad.
That rain , Friday , was a real old-timer.
Three and a half inches of water fell in
less than two hours. So much hail fell
that it lay in patches on the prairie until -
til Saturday night ; and on the north of
buildings it lay until Sunday night. It
stripped the apple , cherry and peach
trees of bloom. Wen. Coleman had sev-
ty-five apple , ten cherry and eighteen
peach trees in bloom , and they are very
near every onegone. Only a few blooms
remain.- Hundreds of twigs , two to five
inches long , are broken off. Fifty or
sixty bushels of apples , cherries and
peaches are "knocked into pie" .
