D. E. THOMPSON of Lincoln has
shied his caster squarely into th
senatorial situation. And thos

virile man above reproach , person
ally and politically is demanded.

THE death of the courageous old
patriotic Cuban general , Garcia , in
Washington , Sunday , is one of
the most pathetic incidents of the
war for Cuban independence. Es
caping the malignity and cruelty
and treachery of Spanish hate , -he
succumbed to an attack of pneu
monia , while in the capital city of
the laud that made possible the
freedom of his own well-beloved
country. His death-cold was * con

adds another item to the pathos of
the sad event.

pete valuable time to writing six
pages of nothing but words and
