RELATING TO TELEPHONES
There isn't much editorial
matter in the editor's head this
week but telephone matter. We
have labored so long for the ad
mission of the rural companies ,
and have suffered so much of
abuse and boycotting that we
feel that we are entitled to say
as much on the subject as we
It was more than 18 months
ago that this paper first took a
stand for the rural companies.
We determined then that it was
right and that we would never
let up until the desires of the
rural companies had been grati
fied Of course we could have
done a good deal better financi
ally if we had taken the other
side of the controversy , but some j
way it didn't seem quite right , (
and therefore we didn't take 4 it. |
We have been accused by time
serving newspapers , of insincer-1
itv and of li'yiiifif to keep
rural companies from accepting
the several propositions offered )
that this accusation is untrue is
known to every rural telephone
man that has ever discussed the
matter with The Tribune. We
did evo.rything in our power to
get the warring factions to
gether , and that , notwithstand
ing the constant and bitter oppo
sition of the local people.
This paper , though it needs
every dollar that it can earn , has
chosen to do what is right. It
has never made a dollar out of
the telephone fight , but it has
advanced its own opinion always.
Can those personal organs that
have accused The Tribune of in
sincerity truthfully say as much ?
We have opposedmen in this con
troversy that are not only friends
of this paper but are among the
strongest personal friends of the
writer , we have regretted more
than we can say that this course
has been necessary , but we have
an old fashioned notion that the
difference between expediency
and right is not a fanciful differ
ence , and though it has cost us
dearly , we have followed what
we thought was right , in which
the action of the council on Mon
day night has vindicated us.
Falls City is over run with red
bugs. Please notice we said red

The state committee met in ;
Lincoln Wednesday night , too
lale for us to present to our read
ers its action. The railroad ele
ment of the party seeks to keej
the question of the selection of :
United States senator out of the
state conventionthereby hoping
to dispose of Norris Brown. Mr
Brown is a poor man who has nc
means of making a fight before :
legislature , and it is considered
quite doubtful whether or not h <
would continue in the contest i :
the committee determined to g <
back to the old method of select
ing a senator. The Richardsoi
county member of the state com .
mittee worked earnestly to hav
the committee leave the selectioi
of a senator to the state conveti
tion where the people can hav
the opportunity of making the !
own selection , and not pass it ute
to a legsslature that it susccpt
ble to so many influences tha

interest to the manifest and er

WOMAN A PUBLIC OFFICIAL.
Pessimist Wlicn Talking of Alabama
Must Speak In Soft Tones Fo-
mtxle Secretary There.
The pessimist who protests
against woman's progression , not
to mention digression , in now
lines of work must admit there is
recognition of her ability abroad
in the land when a woman is
chosen as recording secretary of
one of the southern states , sayn
the Pilgrim. When the man who
held that position with Gov. Cun
ningham , of Alabama , resigned
recently , Miss Mamie OlVutt , who
was conlldcntial stenographer to
the governor , was appointed in his
place. It was a greatcompliment ,
for the ofllce demands the exercise
of much tact and diplomacy. By
virtue of her position Miss Offutt
is also secretary of the state board
of pardons , and keeps a record of
everything in connection with the
thousand and one applications for
pardon from inmates of Alabama
mines and prisons. She must have
a familiarity with the statutes of
the state which relate to the of
fice of governor , since questions
bearing upon state laws and stat
utes are consequently coming in ,
and many novel points raised.
She must also indorse the action
of the governor upon such applica
tions , as well as conduct much of
the correspondence of the execu
tive department. Graciousness
ami gentlewomanly qualities are
no less characteristic of Miss Of
futt than the knowledge of herdu
ties or the efficiency with which
those duties are performed , and
her appointment to such respou-
Hibilites is not only a tribute to
icr exceptional ability , but incidentally -
( dentally recognizes the fact thai
( there are women who can keep .1

Wheu Riot In Ruusla Breaks Loose
Big Shafts Are Made the First
Object of Attack.
That the disturbances in Russia
are uot marked by the overthrow
of memorials is due to the care

The police have learned through
experience that these public me
morials are the llrst objects of a
mob's attack , and they profited by
the happenings iu other lauds.
When the Commune gained control -

the overthrow of the Veudomc

SALVATION IN ADVERTISING
Brightly-Colored Insects Are a Dan
ger Signal to Tholr Known
Every meadow on a summer
day swarms with a winged host
blatantly heralding its exist
ence by colors thai must seem cor
dial invitations to its enemies.
Why is it that they are not at
tacked ? asks Waldemar II.
KaemplVerl , in Hooklovers Mag-
axine. For a long lime ( hat
question puzzled Darwin. After
much futile speculation it was
finally ascertained that many of
these gayly tinlod denizens of th < >
air are horribly distasteful to in
soot-eating epicureans and fre
quently endowed with the most
nauseous qualities. They I'mil
their salvation by advertising
themselves boldly and llnmlxn
antly. Their colors are danger
signals not to be disregarded.

pillar that develops into the
magpie moth is gaudily spotted
with orange and black. A Mill. '

strips the foliage of our oaks and
elms toward the close of sumun > i
is likewise a squirming cylindoi

Other insects that would prove
lelieious morsels to greedy
'oes have not been slow to protU
jy the immunity that is granted

tually mimicked obnoxious spe
eies protected by garish hues in
order to escape death themselves ,
and this with such amazing accu
racy that not only is the enemj
but even the collector completely
tricked. In the jungles of tlu
tVnmzon species of butterflies art
found that mimic the species Heli
i-onidae. Entomologically thej
are all as distinct as horses ant
cows , and yet the one species is r
of the other. The Eleliconidai
possess an atrocious odor au
taste , and accordingly are ai
brilliantly conspicuous as oxeyi
daisies in u green field. So frei
are they from attack that they Ha ]
