By F. M. KIMMELL. OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER. REED WILL BE SPEAKER. The statements of democratic newspapers that a movement had been started among Eepublicans to defeat the nomination of Thomas B. Heed for the speakership of the next house and that the adminis tration desires his defeat , have been given an unqualified denial by Representative Grosvenor of Ohio , whose authority will hardly be questioned.- General Grosveuor says that the name of Mr. Beed will be the only one mentioned in the caucus of the Republican party for speaker of the house of representatives and that he will be nominated unani mously and enthusiastically elected by the same unanimous vote of the Republican membership of the house. The administration , said General Grosvenor , will not only not oppose Mr. Reed , but in his opinion it would be the height of bad politics if any known friend of the administration should be found engaged in anj'thing of that char acter. "If it was deemed advisa ble four years ago and two years ago to elect Mr. Reed speaker , " said the Ohio congressman , "by much stronger reasons it is desir able now that he should not only be elected , but that he should be elected without opposition by the entire party. " There can be no doubt that all republicans who have the interests of the party at heart will be in accord with this view. It is well understood that Mr. Reed is not in sympathy with the territorial expansion idea and also that he does not approve of the proposal of the currency reformers to retire the United States legal tender notes. Doubtless there are some among these elements who would like to see him deposed from the speakership , but they should understand that his influence would not thereby be weakened , though his power in giving direction to legislation would be abridged. On the floor of the house the com manding force and authority of Thomas B. Reed as a leader would still be felt. But his place in a republican house is in the speak er's chair , where he has never had a superior and there is where at least nine-tenths of the republicans of the nation want him to remain. Bee. ALLEN'S plurality is 80. ILRAEL was defeated in the 67th representative district by three votes. THAT was a body blow to Sena tor Allen , and incidentally to Col. Bryan. THE Atlanta Constitution thinks that poets are nearly all men and women who are suffereriug from liver complaints. And the Denver Post has all along believed it was 'pendicitis. SPECULATION is already rife as to who will be Senator Allen's suc cessor. Among the possibilities are : D. E. Thompson , M. L. Hayward - ward , A. W. Field , B. J. Hainer , G. M. Lambertson , M. B. Reese. And the campaign is just opened. "I WOULD not , " says Senator Hale , "take the Philippines if Spain would give 840,000,000 with them. " This is the first intimation we of the distant west have had that an effort had been made to saddle the islands onto the honored senator. IT is given out on very good au thority that the war tax will remain for another year at least , and that t no tariff legislation will be enacted during the coming short session of congress , which will be devoted quite exclusively to passing the appropriation bills. " \ WHATEVER rnay be the prospects for the continuance of the war taxes , the gum on the goverment's documentary stamps was certainly not made to stick. This is really a a serious matter , as the "shedding" of a stamp from a check or docu ment may render it invalid in law and entail serious loss. Royal nakcs the food pure , wholesome and delicious. POWDER Absolutely Pure ROYAL BAKINO POWDER CO. , NEW YORK. BARTLEY. Samuel Blnckfan departed for Omaha , Wednesday morning. M. E. Corbin made a flying trip to Holdrege , latter part of last week. B. C. Fidler moved from the farm into his town property , this week. Miss Nellie Stephens of Box Elder is visiting her sister , Mrs. H. P. Hodgkin. this week. John Blum of Culbertsou was shaking hands with friends here , Tuesday , returning on No. 5. Owing to the increase in busi ness Will Cowles has been assist ing on the dray line , this week. Mrs. C.E.Williams' mother , who has been visiting her for some time , returned to her home in Iowa on 4 , Tuesday evening. After an absence of some weeks , Mrs. W.W.Barngrover returned to her home in Stockville , Monday morning , via the stage route from here. here.Mr. Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Hansom have been visiting theii son-in-law and daughter , Mr. and Mrs. Balph Waite , up on the Medicine , th"e week. 0. W. Eckerman , representative of the Smith-Premier Typewriter Company , spent Sunday here with his old-time friend , Prof. L. V. Patch. Prank Brown of Company "L,5 Third Nebraska Volunteers , left , last Saturday night , to rejoin his regiment at Savannah , Georgia , his sick furlough having expired Eev. N. F. ELletzing of Ontario , California , has been visiting his daughter , Mrs. Wm. Hoppe , in East Valley , this week. He was transacting business in town , Tues day and Wednesday. It was a merry company which spent a few hours at the home o A. B. Wilson , Friday evening o : last week. The sosial environ ments , games and kindred amuse ments served to make the evening of happiest recollections for those present. Miss Anna and Will Boucher o Kearney have been renewing ac quaintances here the past week , Miss Anna arrived early last week and Will came over on Friday to take part in the band concert , Sat urday evening. They left , Tues day morning , to continue their visit with Culbertson friends. The free distribution by the government of Senator W. V. Al len's speeches , which was perfected here , some weeks ago , did not seem : o have the desired effect. It is ; hought that had they been prop- jrly distributed over Frontier coun- ; y rather than along the Burling- ion's right-of-way that his royal jobs , Allen , would have won in a santer. The band concert , last Saturday sveniug , was not a rollicking suc- : ess as regards the monetary feat- ire , but the musical programme vas all that could have been ex acted and thoroughly enjoyed by hose present. The inclemency if the weather no doubt kept many , way , as the boys have always leen accorded a good patronage mder favorable conditions. THE Tammany tiger will now be ompelled to go into retirement , bserves the Denver Post until it an grow a new hide to replace the ne which Colonel Koosevelt has dded to his collection of big game lementoes. ANOTHER such an effort and the lepublicaus will have the earth. COLEMAN. Forty bushels per acre is the yield of M. H. Cole's corn. Mrs. M. H. Cole and Auntie Coleman exchanged parables and ate peaches at auntie's a half day , this week. The Republican majority up here was so big that Uncle Billy took a lumber wngou to get it to the county seat. Wm. Colemau had seven bushels of peaches , this year. About a bushel of late ones were frozen be fore they ripened , and so were lost. Worth Coleman and Geo. Carl of McCook drove across this town ship , last Saturday , and on their return put up at Uncle William's and stayed till Sunday afternoon. Bert Wales and bride have re turned from a visit of about two weeks in Perkins and Dundy coun ties and will be at home to their friends , after December 1st , on the P. Blatt farm , which they will oc cupy the coming year. Farmers up here are in the corn fields early and late , these fine days , and the cribs are filling up. M. H. Cole brought out a new crib , Monday. There is no excuse for any young man fooling his time away now while there is so much corn to pick. A young man up here wants a job in the round-house , and spent two and a half days of this fine corn weather in town , this week , when a half day should have an swered every purpose. Two days lost and Jwo ; dollars not earned. Followed up this will insure pov erty in this or any other country. We learn that a hunter said he would not pay any attention to the notice from up here in last week's paper. We kindly and gently hint that all persons hunting here will be turned over to the proper offi cers with instructions to prosecut to the law's utmost limit. A man who will kill a prairie chicken or i quail now is the farmer's wors enemy. DANBURY. The band's membership now numbers fifteen. Eev. Jacob Martin died sudden ly , last Thursday. George Godown was over to see the county's handsome new cour house , Saturday.
