By F. M. KIMMELL. OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER. THE REPUBLICAN COLUMN. CONNECTICUT. NEW HAMPSHIRE. NEW JERSEY. PENNSYLVANIA. IOWA. MICHIGAN. OHIO. WISCONSIN. CALIFORNIA. NEW YORK INDIANA. ILLINOIS. WYOMING. SOUTH DAKOTA. DELAWARE. KANSAS. WISCONSIN. MIXED RESULTS. THERE seems to be no doubt that the Populist state ticket is elected by pluralities ranging from 2,500 to 5,000. The early returns indicated Republican success in the state , but the later returns soon wiped out the small Republican pluralities claimed. The Populist pluralities were largely reduced , but not enough to bring Republi can victory. The legislature is claimed to be safely Republican , by a small plu rality on joint ballotwhich insures a Republican United States sena tor to succeed Senator Allen. Congressman Sutherland is reelected - elected by a largely reduced ma jority , between 500 and 1,000. There are very good grounds on which to claim the election to the state senate of E.N.Alleu by a safe though small plurality. The election of Dr. Hathorn to the legislature is certain by a de cisive vote. So there is some room for all to rejoice. It might have been worse ; it might have been better ; we are thankful for small favors. THIS appears to be a Republican year. THE last laugh is always the most satisfactory , as well as the best. NEBRASKA is in line again. The state is and always has been Re publican at the core. THE way Colonel Teddy Roosevelt velt of the Rough Riders twisted the tail of the Tammany tiger is most delirious. THE successor to Senator W. V. Allen will be a Republican ; and tue contest will be a royal one for the high honor. THE people came nobly to the support of President McKinley and his policy. His admiuistrrtion is strictly all right , don't you know ? As prophesied in this paper during the campaign , Samuel Ran dolph Smith was "all shot to pieces. " It is only a question of the majority in Starr's case. HATHORN ran like a prairie fire. He will make Red Willow county an able representative. He will vote for a Republican United States senator , too. That's the joy of it. THERE seems to be no doubt but that the next congress will be Re publican in both branches by good working majorities a fact that will be highly gratifying to Presi dent McKinley and his advisers. NOTWITHSTANDING the Republi can plurality was heavily reduced from what it was two years since , the victory of the gallant and cour ageous Roosevelt over Judge Yan Wyck and Tammany was glori ously decisive. A LEAGUE is to be formed having - ing for its object the widening of 1the scope of the postal service. It might be made self-sustaining , "if nofc a source of profit to the gov- eminent , aud.it is one of the pur- po&es-'o the proposed league to bring this about. OFFICIAL RETURNS. On the railroad page of this issue appear the official figures of the votes cast in this county. The result is altogether gratifying to the Republicans of this county. A REPUBLICAN CONGRESS. There is no doubt that the United States senate will have a Republican majority after March 4th next. Republican successors to Murphy in New York , Smith in New Jersey , Gray in Delaware and White in California are assured , which , if there are no other gains , will place the senate in control of the Republipans. In regard to the house of repre sentatives there is less certainty , but'the latest estimate of the con servative chairman of the congres sional committee gives the Repub licans a small majority , which is more likely to be increased than diminished by the complete re turns. A majority of 13 , as esti mated by Chairman Babcock , is very much less than Republicans reasonably expected , but it is an off year and rarely has apathy in the Republican ranks been more marked , so far as the congressional campaign generally was concerned. It can hardly be profitable now to seek explanations of this. . In those states where the Republicans suf fered the greatest loss in congress men various influences operated , some entirely local in character , but a comparison of the vote with two years ago will quite generally show that there was widespread indifference among Republicans which may have been chiefly due to excess of confidence. Bee. COLEMAN. Small grain is looking fine. A. Prentice threshed three days last week. W. K. Forsey and Bob Moore were clerks of election for this precinct. R. Traphagan hauled out brick , Tuesday , for a new chimney to his house. He is having his house plastered. H. B. Wales has 150 acres sown to small grain and thirty acres plowed for corn. He has over 1,500 bushels of corn already husked and is not half done yet. Mr. and Mrs. George White of Dundy county were in this town ship a couple of days , last week and were present at the wedding of their niece , Miss Gertrude Cole- man. Uncle Billy sowed four and half acres of alfalfa in ] 895 , and has cut it every year since. This year he got three big loads per acre at one cutting. Now it is six to ten inches high and the stock runs on it every day and don't ob ject to it at all. MARRIED At the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Coleman , in this precinct , their daughter , Gertrude A. , to Mr. Berton H. Wales. The ceremony was performed by Rev. G. B. Mayfield of Culbertson in the presence of over sixty relatives and friends , who heartily wished these young Christian people all the pleasure this world affords and a home in- the realms of bliss when this life is done. The guests at tested their sincere friendship and well wishes by presenting these estimable young people a large number of valuable and useful gifts. When the ceremony was over and well wishes and congrat ulations extended , the guests sat down to a sumptuous supper , fit for kings and queens. Miss Ger trude came here with her parents in 1881 , and the members of the family were the only residents of this precinct for several years. She has lived here since except three years she spent in Cali fornia. She took a homestead and lived on it seven years. It was contested five times , but she beat them all , proved up and got a pat- ant for the land and still holds it. Mr. Wales came here with his parents in 1893 and has lived here since. Bert is an industrious , ex- amplary young man. He began ivorking for himself in the fall of' 95 and has , by good habits and trugal methods , accumulated a fair share of temporal belongings.

Wilson is the artist with the cleaver and saw. saw.Will Will Bentley , employed on the Burlington's Southern division , is home with a smashed hand and will rest up in parental headquar ters a few days. Rev. and Mrs. I. N. Clover de parted on Monday for Omaha on a visit to the children. They have disposed of their property inter ests here and will piobably make Colorado their futuie home. Mr. and Mrs. W. V. Vickrey and Glenn went up to Culbertson on 1 , Wednesday morning , on a short visit to Rev. and Mrs. G. B. Mayfield - field , formerly of this place. Mr. Vickrey also gave attention to mat ters of business moment farther up the road. The local election was a very tame affair and all one-sided , the Fusiouists being smothered under an avalanche of Republican votes. The precinct vote averaged about 81 to 33 and there Was only one "Pop" with sufficient nerve to stay to see the count finished. ' S. W. Clark went up to the cen ter of county affairs , Wednesday morning , with the election returns. The smile which overspread his features on his return could not be interpreted to mean that there was anything wrong with illow county Republicans , this year. The election of Dr. J. E. Hath orn of this place to represent the Sixty-fifth district in the approach ing legislature is a source of much satisfaction to many. That the district will be ably represented and -well will not be questioned for an instant by his bitterest po litical opponents , and the doctor's large majority , J81 , is noted with gratification. The business of this place is perhaps larger at the present time than it has ever been. The busi ness houses are all full for the first time in years and there is not an empty dwelling house in the town. Property is in greater demand than for many moous , and most of that formerly owned by out-of-town parties has been recently trans ferred to local ownership. The brick bank block occupied by Yickrey's store , the bank room , Inter-Ocean office , etc. , has been purchased by the State Bank of Bartley and the bank room will be immediately refitted for occupation by that concern , which has had quarters in Yickrey's store since its institution. W. Y. Vickrey was up the road , this week , looking for a safe with which to replace the one removed from the vaults after the suspension of the Bank of Bartley about two year's ago. The present institution is handling a large business and the demand for more commodious quarters has been a pressing one for some time. The change will be scarcely less gratifying to the patrons than to the management. Awarded HighesV Honors World's Fair , DR ; BAKING POWDffl MOST PERFECT MADE. pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.

Ludell is in the centei of the best wheat belt on the line and has in reserve considerably over 100 carloads of wheat. Las year wheat was such a paying crop that many of the farmers go out of debt and do not have to sel at prevailing low prices. The largest wheat fields in Eawlius county are north of Ludell.

Trainmaster Josselyn may well feel proud of his management and the great increase of business since he first took charge of the St.Fran- cis branch. For two weeks the branch has averaged an extra be sides a regular train each way daily. It is rumored that "Johnnie" Morrissey , ageut at Atwood , con templates entering the journalistic field. It is said ho has received a flattering offer from a leading daily. Mr. Morrissey is a bright and fluent writer and is conspicu ous for his wit and brilliant imag ination and would be a credit to any paper. President Perkins of the Burl ington is out on his annual hunt near Ludell. The people of that vicinity are always glad to wel come Mr. Perkins. Mrs. Perkins , the wife of the president , went east on a special , Saturday , from Lu dell , where she has been'spending a few days with him. This line was honored with the presence of General Superintendent Cahert , Superintendent A. Campbell and Trainmaster Josselyn , who came up on the special with President Perkins , last week. . 28.
