NOTWITHSTANDING extraordinary ex
penses in connection with the Philippine
insurrection , the public debt of the
United States under Republican man
agement is rapidly decreasing. During
the piping times of peace of the labt
Democratic free-trade administration ,
the debt increased in just about the same
ratio as it is now being reduced.
IN its unqualified support of the Re
publican city ticket , THE TRIBUNE
menus no personal affront to the worthy
gentleman on the Petition ticket , but
with a full knowledge of the men on the
Republican ticket and of how they were
nominated , and feeling the necessity of
Republican success in matters great and
small , TUB TRIBUNE sees no sufficient
reason why the Republican city ticket
should not receive every Republican vote
in the city.
IT will be remembered that in 1898 a
party of silver Republican patriots ,
among whom was Senator Pettigrew ,
made a tour of Japan for the purpose ol
finding out why that country had aban
doned the silver standard for the gold ,
and also to learn how the gold standard
was working. They returned in safety ,
but for some reason their report was
never heard from. The mystery is now
solved. The Japanese minister of finance
has just issued a full official report show
ing that the gold standard has been ol
great advantage to all classes in Japan ,
clearly accounting for the vast improve
ment over the conditions found under
free silver. This may explain why the
members of the self-appointed Pettigrew
commission suddenly dropped the Jap
anese gold-standard question like a hot
cake and turned their attention to other
lines of opposition.
THE Republican city ticket is com
posed of clean and competent men who
highly recommend themselves to the
electors of this city for their votes at the
coming city election. The nomination
of each and all of these candidates was
fairly and openly secured in a regularly
called and properly constituted Republi
can caucus , and they as such nominees
are justly entitled to the unswerving sup
port and loyal votes of the Republicans
of McCook on the ground of party con
siderations as well as because of the rec
ognized worthfulness of the men on the
ticket. THE TRIBUNE desires especially
to urge upon the Republicans of this city
the importance of upholding and main
taining the party organization at this
time , just as the party is preparing for
the greatest contest of its history , when
organization and authority and harmony
are so essential to party success , next
fall. Stand by the city ticket !
THE pledge of the Republican party
with reference to money has been ful
filled. The new currency law breaks
the "endless chain , " and at the same
time established a sufficient guaranty
fund in the treasury to maintain at a gold
value every dollar of curreucy in circula
tion in the United States , whatever its
form may be. It makes the reserve fund
for redemption of paper money' $150,000-
ooo , instead of $100,000,000 , and author
izes the secretary of the treasury to in
crease this reserve fund whenever it gets
below $100,000,000 , by exchanging the
paper currency thus redeemed for gold
in the general fund , or by sale of bonds
if necessary to keep the reserve up to its
proper figure. The fact that the notes
redeemed cannot be used again to meet
deficiencies in the current revenues , and
only by exchange for gold , obviates the
possibility of pumping the gold out of
the treasury by the "endless chain"
process which proved so disastrous a few
years ago , while the fact that the law
specially names the dollarat " 25 Sgrains
gold , nine-tenths fine , " as the unit of
value , puts an end to any possible ques
tion as to the value and acceptability of
American money in any part of the
world , and of the relation ot any one of
our dollars to any other dollar.
For Councilman , Second Ward.
W. T. Colenian , the Republican nom
inee for councilman in the Second ward ,
is one of McCook's most substantial
business men , with large investments
and interests in the city. From a small
beginning Mr. Coleman , by careful at
tention to safe and conservative business
methods , by energy and push , has de
veloped his business into one of the
most pretentious establishments in
Southwestern Nebraska. Such a suc
cessful man of affairs is especially quali
fied to make a valuable councilman.
Mr. Coleman has ever been identified
with the law and order element of our
city , in which he is deeply concerned ,
and for whose prosperity and honor he
has always been a warm champion. He
will make McCook a most desirable
councilman. THE TRIBUNE recom
mends him warmly and heartily and un
reservedly' to the Republican voters of
the Second ward , who should see to it
that he is elected by a safe plurality.

him shoot ; then for about four seconds there
was a mixture of BillAndygun , when Bil
broke the combination , leaving the gun some
where , and Andy , plainly visible with his feet
flourishing heavenward and his head in the

amusing and Andy didn't ; for after digging
himself out , he came back to the house and in
a tone that showed that his confidence in Bill
and John was about on a par , says : "John , I
thought you said I could shoot off of Bill ? '
John , laughing hard , said : "Well , if you
didn't shoot off of Bill , I'd like to know what
you'd call it. "
