CRIPPLE CREEK has been almost
totally destroyed , this week , by two
Y incendiary fires attended b loss of life
, S ; and great destruction of property.
THE Bowers postal bill should become
a law during the present session of con-
. ; . gress. Such a measure has in it the
possibilities of doing some good to the
every day common people.
sap THE A. P. A. will discover it cannot
- make any unholy war on so good an
' = American as Major McKinley , and the
t ; : rank and file of that order will refuse to
be led into any scheme of that kind. A
I ? few bosses of that order may tae anxious
. to show their power , but the people of
, the country , the plain rank and file of
the Republican party , have already been
A doing some vigorous smashing of the
plots of the bosses.-Fremont Tribune.
McCooK conies forward with a new
. 9 - candidate to be added to the long list of
good men "mentioned" for state auditor.
He is H. H. Troth , who has been prominently -
nently identified with southwestern Ne-
braska's development fora period of
twenty-five years. He was elected mayor
Of McCook at the spring election , with
only one vote against him. This fact is
sufficient to prove his claim to popularity -
ity and he will have sonic active supporters -
porters behind him.-Fremont Tribune.
; . THE assertion that Mayor H. H.
Troth of our city is a candidate for state
t. auditor in the interest of some or any
' other candidate is indignantly and
warmly denied by him , and his friends
are taking comfort in the fact that the
false report is being corrected over the
state , and that his candidacy is being
, now clearly regarded as in his own be-
; f , half , without asking the consent of an Y
other nation or potentate on earth.
" IOWA has had the nerve to tackle the
' express companies doing business in that
. state The recent legislature passed a
s : bill which taxes the companies on gross
earnings for the benefit of the state and
' that places them so far as state business
is concerned under the control of the
railway commission of that state , requiring -
quiring the fixing of a scale of rates on
a like basis with that for rates for rail-
.J ways. The same question should be acted -
ed on in Nebraska.-Nebraska Farmer.
LAST year was a big potato year.
What the present year will be in this
A respect no man can tell. But every one
' knows that potatoes are very cheap and
that the item of cost for seed will be a
very inconsiderable one. We would
1 : ' say Plant potatoes this year. They are
always or generally at least worth what
it costs to produce then [ even for feeding
- purposes. No farmer cau ever afford to
: buy a single bushel of potatoes when he
can raise them on his own farm. Though
perhaps a small item in the rotation of
- crops potato growing is a very inipor-
e tint one.-Lincoln Journal.
THE "Three Macs" slate seems so far
to be having tolerably sniooth sailing
under the captaincy of that clever and
energetic political manipulator State
Treasurer Bartley , who seems to be abnormally -
: normally active in bossing the whole job
of naming the Republican nomineess
for next fall's election. Slates-if
they are good slates-are not the
worst things in the world of politics ;
but the people of the Republican party
of the state of Nebraska may take a notion -
tion about July 1st to do a little slate
making of their own that may not be in
keeping with that set up by Treasurer
Bartley. Or they may take another nog
tion of smashing a slate or two.

J- ' . They departed for Missouri the next

It is Different , Now.
IT has not been very long since the
Republican party took great interest in
the A. P. A. as it was intended to divide
the people on religious lines and take
their attention from politics and the
tricks of the politicians. Now that it is
giving the said politicatis and "leaders"
some grief , they are quite loud in
condemning the organization.-Trenton

The Transmississippi Exposition.
Never has there been anything suggested -
gested that will bring as many people
into Nebraska as the proposed Trans-
mississippi exposition to be held at Omaha -
ha in 1898. Since the government has
recognized the undertaking and has voted -
ed $2ooooo for its building and exhibit
it has become an assured fact.
In order to make the exposition a success -
cess in every particular it will be necessary -
sary to keep the people all over the
country thoroughly posted on the possibilities -
bilities , its development and progress.
Every citizen of Nebraska should make
it his business to let his friends in all
parts of the country understand that this
enterprise is to be second only to the
great Chicago Columbian exposition of
The Omaha Bee proposes to devote
considerable space from now on to this
great enterprise , knowing that a great
deal of publicity will be necessary to
bring the people here at the right time.
It has been suggested that a rate be
made for subscriptions to The Bee that
will give everybody an opportunity to
send one or more papers to friends in tether
other states. Acting on this suggestion
the publishers of The Weekly Bee have
decided to make a price of 25 cents for
that paper , mailed to any address in
the country from the present time up to t
January I , 1897. This price hardly coy- t
ers the cost of the white paper used in 4
printing a twelve-page paper for this
length of time , but the publishers feel
that the great exposition must be properly -
ly advertised and are willing to do their
share toward helping along an enterprise a
that is bound to be a great benefit to t
this state , as well as to the entire western -
ern country. Orders should be addressed - t
dressed to the Weekly Bee Omaha Neb.
