Congress adjourned last night
To President Wm McKinley greet
ing AVe hope for the sake of the peo
ple at large that your administration
will be a prosperous one
Nothing truer nor worse could be
said of either than that In honesty
Village horizon and rise to the level of
-broad minded public spiiit which seeks
to develop the state and draw atten
tion to the advantages it offers to in
vestors and homeseefeers Instead of
decrying Omaha -and attempting to
block its enterprise the state at large
-ought to rejoice at the opportunity
-presented for joining with Omaha in a
grand effort to lift city and state up
-and hasteu the revival of prosperity
Through the courtesy of Hon O M
Kem this office is in receipt of 50 cop
ies of the Year Book of the Depart
ment of Agriculture for 1895 This
Year Book is a volume of some 600
pages of printed matter and is filled
hdck full of interesting matter and
no one who reads them can fail to
material benefit therefrom
Alialfa irrigation soil culture grasses
and other subjects of special import
ance are thoroughly discussed in the
book You are welcome to a copy if
vou call for one
The history of this congress if truth
fully written would show a systematic
neglectGf public business a confusion
-and perversity of counsels a lack of
public spirit and patriotism an exhi
bition of partisanship and malevolence
to a degree that has not been sur
passed in our history
The extravagance of this cbngress
surpasses all previous example This
is a greater public offence from the
fact that the times are bard and the
taxpayers are poor Economy should
fcave been practiced in all departments
of public expenditure Instead of
thrift and economy there has been
wevery wbere profligacy and extrava
gance without bounds Chicago

In the opinion of this paper the
fccrap at Carson on the 17th will be
nothing but a lighting machine against
boxer- with Fitzsimmons in the role
of tire machine
An honest man is the noblest work
of God but a hypocrite in the livery of
foeaven is an abomination in the sight
of God and man This quotation is
very apt when applied to a certain
3ocal num
The folio wrag is clipped from an
Ohio republican paper
The balance ot trade in favor of this
country under the -two years McKinley
law wasoulv 20 millioms more than
under the two ears of the Wilson law
on ten millions 4i year in a total of
1700 million These figures are for
fiscal years ending June 30th If the
calendar years were taken ending Dec
llst the balance of trade would be
larselv in favor of the Wilson bill two
years irr i lie year lbJO

Birdie whoever he she or it may
be gets real mad at The Democrat
in last weeks Gordon Journal and says
some awfully mean things about the
paper Birdie calls this office a
cheese press and apple butter and
shoe peg shop says the editor is no
gentleman and after awhile remarks
that life is too short to waste breata
on the desert air and words are in
adequate to express our feelings from
all of which we gather that Birdie is
a womanand that her article was
touched up by Bro Lyou before it ap
peared in the Journal How do we
know these things Why bless you
would anyone but a woman use the ex
pressions quoted aud do not J3ro
Lyons earmarks show This paper
did not susppct that it was going
after a woman in its former article
or it might have dealt gently with her
As it is we retract the epithets if we
used any and ask her pardon Never
theless Birdie was way oil on her
figures regarding Cherry countys
finances and the statements made by
her were calculated to do great injury
to the county at large Being a
woman she of course did not think of
this and burning with indignation
over the contemplated outrage of fur
nishing the county with a court house
I which will cost practically nothing did
not stop to figure the effect of her
words learn the price of county war
rants or the ability of the county to
pay its debts Once mote we ask
Birdies pardon and if she will send
us her name and address will place it
on our subscription list for a year
This paper has all the time deplored
thejingo sentiment which exists among
those classes of people who were op
posed to the Cleveland administration
and has contended that Secretary 01
ney did right in using diplomacy in
stead of force when dealing with
Spain and Cuba net however from
auy love of Spain Cuba should be
freed and will be soon no doubt Now
that a jingo administration or an ad
ministration which has always been
supported by the jingoists has charge
of affairs at AVashington it is a good
time urge war on Spain Jehosaphat
Shall we stand by and have people
arrested who once visited this country
for a short period anguily without
even sending a warship to see how
about it Can an American partici
pate in a war Uuiz be arrested and
imprisoned without the consent of this
aation How dare the Spaniards

Down with the Spanittrds we say
AArill the American people stand idly by
and permit outrages like those enum
erated War Lets have war Noth
ing but buckets of bind and barrels
of briny tears from the bull fighter will
satisfv us
The following receipt is offered by a
AYesteru paper Just let the subscription-go
Its only a dollar or two
the publisher dont need it
If he asks for it just get as mad as
you can tell him to stop the paper
you never read it anyhow Then
go and borrow your neighbors
AAhen the reporter comes always be
busy Make him feel as if he was in
truding AVhen the advertising and
job man comes tell him you dont
need to advertise everybody knows
you that you will try to get along
without any printed stationery it is
too expensive you must economiize
Never drop in to see the editor un
less you want a free complimentary
notice or a lengthy obituary for a be
loved relative Never recommend the
paper to -anybody AVhen you do
speak ot it say Yes we have a lit
tle sheet but it dont amount to
Keep it up a year or two and you
will -have a dead newspaper a dead set
of merchants and a dead town
The Oracle a monthly magazine
published at AYood Lake made its
first appearance last week The
mechanical woik on the magazine is so
poor one can form a very inadequate
idea of the value of the contents
With good printers behind it the
Jazine might make a success

It will pay every lady to see our fine and large selection before buying
Four years from now McKinley will
be softly singing to himself
Just a little sunshine
Just a littlo pain
A very little president
And a lot of pain
Newspapers over the state are loud
in their demands that thG present law
relating to legal newspapers be allowed
to remain on our statute books
Everybody who believes in fairness
will advocate the defeat of the bill in
troduced for its repeal
AVhether a man steals for himself or
for others the act is theft Whether
an officer converts public funds to his
own use or permits them to be con
verted to the use of others the act is
embezzlement Every unpunished em
bezzlement of public funds is a pre
mium on the betrayal of official
trust Omaha Bee
An exchange says a lawyer in a
court room may call a man a liar a
scoundrel villian or a thief and no
one makes a complaint when court ad
journs If a newspaper prints such a
reflection on a mans character there
is a libel suit or a dead editof This
is owing to the fact that the people be
lieve what an editor says what the
lawyer says cuts no figure
AV E Annin the State Journal
correspondent at Washington has this
to say of J Sterling Morton Secre
tary Morton will go out of office before
the seeds purchased for this years dis
tribution have gone from his depart
ment to the mails He will leave these
seeds behind him as he will also the
more valuable seeds of departmental
economy and garden sass sense which
he has been planting through the four
years in which he has presided over
the agricultural department

people win rf member that lh man spoken of
here is the Cntiioie m lesc that visits this place
occasionally bin has not shown his ugly mug
here forborne time iowit is not our purpose
to attack the Catholic church or any other
church but will go after him on general princi
ples Tt u oukl seem bv the reading that the
holy father ha been having a little altercation
with one Had which ws think if proper
ly translated would mean Robert Jood but we
arc at a Iosh to know what this man Had as he
calls him has eer had to do with the A P As
of Newporr wuich he lights down on all
sprawled out
Now about the building referred to Wn will
say it stood unocupiedlor a long time lor thu
rea on that the liolv father seemed to have
control of it andwodd not lent it for anjthing
like a reasonable sum While our people looked
upon tliebuiidingasan old lire trap liable to
take lire trom many different wajs bv accident
it being therefore a menace to the town yet no
one e er thought of w recking it or burning it
no we thiow it back in his teeth as an absolute
he and we find tiiat it is not the only one he has
told for he tells another when he says the indig
catholics inarched in a body to Prof
l v Pad V printing shop and demanded their names
io or iiivuu irom me use jNow the tacts are
that this man l5ad be speaks of never ran a
printing shop as he -calls it m this town neither
did any such a thing take place as the Catholics
ordering their papers stopped He says he well
remembers the day when this was dotie and in
the next breath he says that if this is the case
and In has grave suspicious that it is thus ad
mitting that he had lied about the matter
The statements of Father Lechleituer are
wholly false so far as he has made anv refer
ence to the above mentioned are to the people
of Newport Ed Republican
The foregoing is taken from the
Newport Republican of Eeb 19 and is
part of a column article contributed to
that paper by a correspondent Only
that part of the communication is
printed which bears upon our case
The Republican makes charges against
Lechleitner far worse than anything
The Democrat ever said In the
light of the above corroboration of our
denial of Lecbleitners charges he
and the people engaged in cir
culating them will if they are pos
sessed of a spark of decency or love of
fairness immediately make a retrac
tion or stand convicted as dastards and
While returning home from a neigh
bors last Saturday Mrs J A Cronin
living southeast of town had a nar
row escgpe from death AAThen within
about half a mile from home the team
she was driving ran away throwing
her to -the ground The team went
over the sand through blowouts on
side hills and other dangerous places
running at a tremendous gait for about
half a hour when they were captured
The team ran -over places where a
pedistrian could not follow and yet
strange to say neither Mrs Cronin the
team or buggy were injured in the
slightest degree
