S1.60 A YEAR IN ADVANCE.
It is gratifying to know that
Chief Justice A. M. Post has final-
I ly surrendered to the urgings of
I his many warm friends over the
I state and has decided to stand for
H reelection to the supreme bench.
H Doubtless this determination on
the part of Judge Post means fi-
H nancial loss and the most uuremit-
ting toil to him , for the salary is
I paltry and the duties of the office
HI most pressing and laborious , but
II the Judge's loss will be the dis-
II tinct gain of the Republican party
11 and the people of the state of Ne
ll braska. Judge Post is in every
11 essential well , nay eminentlyqual-
II ified for the position he has held
II during the past few years , and the
II Republican party will honor itself
| g by recognizing the ability and
IK splendid record of Judge Post by
m renominating him for the supreme
HI bench , for no man in the state over-
H measures the Judge in the severe
Hi requirements , mental , moral and
H judicial , for a judge of the supreme
H court of the state of Nebraska.
Hj And not only is Judge Post pre-
H eminently fitted in all particulars
III for the place , but the conditions as
J well call clearly and loudly for his
B retention on the bench , where he
K has made a clean , honorable and
M able record. It is indeed a pleas-
ure for The Tribune to learn of
his decision and to urge upon the
I Republican party of the state what
we consider its duty , the renomi-
nation of Judge A. M. Post of Oo-
lumbus for judge of the supreme

Hj sinessalthough the season of mid-

lj Business men of the highest stand-
H ing in all parts of the country have
gradually perceived that the tide
I has begun to rise and are regulating
I their contracts -investments

I confidence quite unknown to them
I a short time ago. Great changes
B before the adjournment of Congress

B moval of uncertainty is with reason

I buying forces which have been restricted -

j it is encouraging that crop prospects -
\ pects still grow brighter ; that the
industries meet a gradually in
creasing demand for products ; that
I labor questions which had a
threatening aspect have been adjusted -
* justed , and that the Treasury
maintains its ample strength not
withstanding some exports of gold
; brought about by premiums paid
i ' on behalf of foreign governments. "
Dun's Review , June 26.
In issuing the official call for
i the National Republican League
of the United States , which is to be
held in Detroit , July 13,14 and 15 ,
President "Woodmansee says : "We
I cannot overestimate the importance
of this convention to the Republi
can party. Our victory of last
I year does not guarantee perma
nency of power. We must keep our
organization well equipped for the
contest of ' 98 , when we will again
vote for members of Congress , and
in many of our state elections
this year the terms of members of
the United States Senate are at

Adding : Disabilities Together.
One of the cruel strokes at the
veterans by the Cleveland Admin
istration was Order 224 prohibi
ting Examining Boards from ad
ding together minor disabilities
'to make a pensionable rating under
the act of June 27 , 1890.
This was malignant in concep
tion , and harshly unjust in execu
tion. . It was one of the devices
employed to nullify the Disability
Act. Cleveland and his followers
lacked the courage to repeal out
right that admirable but terribly
slandered piece of legislation , so
they resorted to all manner of
tricks and subterfuges to defeat
its operation. Order 224 was one
of the most cunning and effective
The object of the Disability Act
was to give a pension not exceed
ing § 12 a month to every man who
was incapacitated for manual
labor. This was its true intent
and purpose , and it should have
been administered solely to that
end. But unless a man had some
one specific disability and under
the Lochren rule , it had to be an
exceedingly severe infirmity
sufficient to entitle him to a rating ,
he was denied a pension.
The injustice of this is clear to
every reasonable man. The meas
ure of a man's disability is not any
one infirmity , but the sum of all
from which he suffers. They all
contribute to disable him , and two
lesser disabilities will cripple him
more than one more severe. JFor
example , a man with moderately
bad rheumatism may get along
better than one with slighter rheu
matism coupled with hernia and
chronic diarrhoea. The disabilities
have always been taken togeather
under the old laws , and the only *
reason for varying the custom of •
she Bureau was eagerness to do '
anything and everything to nullify
and invalidate the act of June 27 ,
Order 224 still stands on the
books of the Pension Bureau , but
we are in daily expectation of its
repeal by Commissioner Evans.
Last week Representative R. D.
Sutherland , of Nebraska , intro
duced the following bill , which , if
passed , will sweep away the obnox
ious order , and prevent any future
duplications of it.
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Con
gress assembled , That in applica
tions for pensions under section 2
of the act of June 27 , 1890 , or for
am increase under the said law ,
now pending or hereafter to be
made , it shall not be necessary for
the applicant to allege any special
or specific disability , but a general
allegation that the claimant is suf
fering from a mental or physical
disability of a permanent charac
ter , not the result of his own vic
ious habits , shall be sufficient.
Sec. 2. That all acts and parts of
acts inconsistent with the provis
ions of this act are hereby repealed.
The first gathering of Republi
cans in a National Convention
since the victory of ' 96 will be
that of the National Republican
League in Detroit , July 13. Re
duced railroad rates make it easy
for Republicans to attend. It
looks as though the convention
were to be a great gathering. It
is interesting to note the evident
desire that Detroit has for the
nominating convention in 1900.

Your correspondent attended the
elebration on Saturday at the
Jtone ranch. It was a success in
every particular. The exercises
were held in a beautiful grove of
elm trees. There were patriotic
speeches by a number of good
speakers , interspersed with excel
lent music by the Culbertson band.
The Cornell glee club composed of
Messrs. Powers and Hinkle and
Misses Paddock and Flood also
furnished good music. There were
500 or 600Jpeople there from the
towns of Culbertson , Trenton and
Cornell and the country around.
The Ladies' Aid society furnished
refreshments and took in 310 at
their stand presided over by Mrs.
Roger Barnes. Money will be
used in building a new church.
Last but not least there was an
abundance of good things to eat.
The people all unite in saying that
it was a harmonious celebration of
a glorious day.

United States weather bureau will

cold wave starts in that direction.

result from this arrangement , and
by the same token there is no

fortune , several of the neighbors

to extend a helping hand to the af
flicted by refusing to allow him to
use water from their wells.
The celebration was largely suc
cessful , the majority voting it as
such. Mr. Valentine was as good
as his word in giving something
new in the line of Fourth of July
speeches. The remarks by H. H.
Berry were also appreciated. The
contests were all spirited , from the
fat men's race to climbing the
