The fact that the anti-trust pre
I ositiou was not incorporated in t
n taiiff bill does not mean that t
M Republicans are going to omit
J active support. On the contrai
J * it will be pushed as an independe
measure at once , the only reas' '
for the failure to place it in t
tariff bill being because of the d
lay in that measure which
discussion of this proposition wou
be sure to cause.
When you see a man who is
all times full of partisan enthusiar

The recent statement of Colon
Mitchell that all opponents <
fusion are either Republicans <
Anarchists rests hardly upon tL
mid-roadites. Some time sine
the Populists were bewailing tin
I their organ "said nothing. " An
now they are wishing in the name
of all the gods large and lilliputia
that their organ would in the f utui
confine itself to saying nit exck
It is melancholy to observe th
attacks of little minds upon a castl
of intellect. Because Hon. Wiliar
Jennings Bryan was found latel ;
by a wandering reporter befor
breakfast , the supremacy and evei
the plutophobic sincerity of Mi
Bryan are questioned by men wh <
ought to know better. According
to this reporter , as often as Mi-
Bryan "would rise ( sic ) up in bed
the light would fall on his elegani
silk nightshirt , all covered
in front" with embroideries , 16 to 1
in raised letters , and so on. The
populists don't like the description.
Many popocrats are shaking
head and ear over it. A friend of the
people is in an elegant embroidered
silk nightshirt ! A plain , simple
young manvowed to the hatred ol
everybody who makes more than
$5,000 a year , detected in a sofi
light and an elegant silk nightshirt 5
Did Jack Cade wear an elegant
embroidered silk nightshirt ? Did
Jack Cade wear any sort of night
shirt ? Are not nightshirts , al
though very cheap as the result of
combinations and monopolies , dis-
1 . tinctly plutocratic ? N.Y.Sun.
There is nothing to be gained
by Republican editors by going
into deliriums of impotent rage
and disappointment , or by exhibi
tions of partisan hate on the part
of Republican politicians , over the
temporary eclipse of the party in
the state of Nebraska. Neither will
it avail much to call the opposi
tion nincompoops , anarchists etc.
Our condition is at least measur
ably self-imposed , and the remedy
is simple : Punish those who have
brought disgrace on 'the party , loss
to the state ; hurl from power the
leaders that have admittedly drag
ged the party down to disaster and
disrepute in the furtherance of
their own selfish ends ; let the rank
and file of the party take an ef
fective hand in the nominating of
clean , able and untrammeled can
didates , which abound in the Re
publican party ; and soon the star
of Republican success will be in
the ascendant. No party or com
bination in this state is superior to
the Republican party in personnel ,
if its equal. Wise and honest lead
ership will make it invincible.

ler we struck out for Colby , but getting abe
miles out we had to commence climbing tl
lills out of the Sappa valley which made 1
ralk considerable as our motor power w ;
imited. From about 3 p. m. on we we :
iretty slow. Every now and then we wou ,
top at a farm house for a good drink of mil

Next morning we struck out for Kexfon
bout 10 miles straight south , the wind blov
ig hard as ever , and we began to think th :
ur luck was not of the best kind. So arrh
ig there about S a. m. we concluded to tak
le train as far as Brewster and cut acres
om there to Wallace , then to Tribune on th
[ issouri Pacific , then on to Pueblo , but aite
itting 5 or 6 miles out southwest from Breu
er we got into a country that we named * 'N
[ an's Land" , for there was not a soul to ben
en anywhere. Then Russian thistles hai
ken the land and the natives had gone t
ek refuge among their wives' folks. W
: gan to get thirsty , and fearing that 011
lances would be slim for water if we kep

ock Island , thinking it would be better fete
to travel in civilization than where man
asts , birds , squirrels , etc. had ceased to stay
About 2:30 p. m. we came to a station 01

than any thing we had-struck so far , pack-

We got to Goodland about sun-down that

ted until about 10 o'clock the next morning ,
ving previously decided that life was to

ht we commenced riding through the land
the prickly-pear cactus and sand-hills all
: way to the Springs. Occasionally we saw
eld of grain and a farm house to match it ;
0 a few skin-poor Texas cattle feeding on
sand-grass that grows in between the
tus of the prairie.
Lt Limon , Colorado , we changed cars a
le after sun up , and after riding about an
ir we came in sight of the Rockies , they
king something like great rain clouds fixing
for a storm. 8:30 a. m. we were in the
ings and after walking around and gawk-
at the signs we found a 15c. meal house ,
er breakfast we rode out toManitou , about
iles distance into the mountains. This is
: autiful city situated at the foot of Pike's
k. The buildings aie mostly of stone and

for it alone one day what it costs for board
week at home , and that afternoon started

o'clock we came to the half-way house
inquiring the distance on up we were told
it was 6 miles before we could reach the
mit of our ambition , having only come 2'A

gain and we took the back track , thinking
be that some day in the future we would
ble to make the top in amoie easy way.
ig the evening of the third day we rested ,

On Wednesday , the 14th , with an uncle ,
made a trip to Canon City , about 45 miles

and rode part of the time on a desert of sa

through some of the finest fruit country in
