, By F. M. KIMMELL , .
.OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
EXPANSION is being pretty thor
oughly airedin congress. Of
course it's a wnrm topic.
THE immense gold find reported
from Colorado a few days ago be
comes of less importance as time
MATT DAUGHERTY and K. D.
Harris are the newly appointed
register and receiver for the * laud
office at Sidney , this state.
JUDGE HAYWAKD seems to be
forging well to the front in the
senatorial race. He would make
a senator in whom the state could
take pardonable pride.
WHILE it was expected to be
different , the cold facts remain
that Omaha was the great benefi
ciary by the exposition. Let the
matter rest right there.
EVEN our old friend Carnegie
is afraid of a little expansion. An
drew never runs at expansion , when
it relates to his own little business
affairs. And Parkhurst has stam
peded. Well !
THE TRIBUNE is undecided in
this Hobsou kissing nonsense ,
whether the fool's belt belongs to
Hobsou , the women or the news
papers. It ought to be awarded
at once and the nonsense stopped.
IF there is much of truth in all
this Hobsou kissing nonsense ,
Hobson ought to be suppressed.
There are enough sources from
which one can get "that tired feel
ing" without reading columns of
Hobson's latest kissing record.
It's all unprecedented nonsense.
THE district attorneyship plum
has finally fallen , and William S.
Summers of Lincoln was right
there to catch it. The senate con
firmed his nomination the same
day it was sent in. He will make
a strong and highly creditable at
torney for the state.
GENERAL WHEELER was asked
the other day by a very young
man of Washington : "How is it
you never wear auy medals ? You
surely have some. " "No , " an
swered the soldier , "I have not. I
am no bicyclist and I never made
a century run in my life. " Which
goes to prove that Joe is long on
good hard sense.
THE supreme court of the state
of Illinois has declared the cigar
ette law of that state to be valid
and legal. The law demands of
dealers an annual license of § 500.
Nebraska may well copy after the
Illinois people in that respect at
least. The license to sell cigar
ettes to minors at least ought to
be made as near prohibitory as
possible. It is a great and grow
ing curse to the youth of the land.
THE TRIBUNE has none but the
warmest wishes for the success ;
and prosperity of Omaha , but must :
be excused from participating in
or aiding and abetting any more ;
exposition schemes at this time ,
either temporary or permanent.
Better rest for the present on the
If magnificent success achieved than
to spoil the splendid record with
failure and opposition , and the ;
alienation of the present good feel 81a
ing now entertained toward Ne 81fc
braska's metropolis. fc

Letters from various parts of

that the corn is likely to stay in
the fields until spring. A man
