McKinley and Bryan will be the op-1
posing candidates in 1000 as in ' ' ) . , and
the result will be that Bryan comes out
victorious. He received the popular
vote at the last election , although a
yery new man , now with his popularity
as a statesman , can win hands down.
Wm. Jennings Bryan , president in
lb'00 , is a sure thing.
The fusionist members of state institutions -
tutions believe in improving on their
republican predecessors in the matter
of appointments and adopted the fol
lowing resolution :
Resolved , That it is the sense of this
board that no member of the family of
the superintendent of either of the in
stitutions under our control should been
on the payroll of the institution.
Boyd county republicans are mad
because their board of county commis"
sioners had the affrontery to file a com
plaint ferniust County Treasurer Seiler
just because he admitted having stolen
$5,270 of the county's money. They
claim that as he was simply following
a precedent t > et ; by other republican j
state and county treasurers there is no j !
cause for action 0' > eill Independent
The following resolution was passed
by the Elkhorn Valley Editorial Asso
ciation , of which we are a member :
RESOLVED , That no candidate , either
for the nomination or election for the
legislature , be given.the support of any
newspaper published by members of
his A'ssociation unless said candidate
first ] pledges himself to vote agains1
any bill looking toward the reduction
OJ legal rates for printing. Motion
Samuel Kinga cousin of the Wheeler
Bros. , of this county , and a member of
Battery B , Utah Artillery , now in the
Philippines , recently wrote a letter
home , front which we extract the fol
lowing paragraph :
There are lots of soldiers killed , we
ca ' find out how many as it is kept a
se some way or another. I don't
know what the object is. I would
send you the papers from here but they
seT ' publish the tacts as they exist.
They : are making lots of de.nocrats of ,
the soldiers by the wav they are doing
and treating us out here. When the ,
articles of peace were signed we thought ai
we could not be kept here over sixty th
daj's , but it looks different now. The ec
officers have been around with a peti
tion asking the boys to re-enlist for six
months longer , but not one of the boys
would < sign it. We have been fooled ,
once and we thought that enough. The th
volunteers are giving it to the republi
cans for bringing on this uncalled for >
trouble < which is a disgrace to the
United : States. mi
The editor of the Chadron News
must be afflicted with corns on his

judging from his attitude toward the

ing , all members of tle association
when he was invited to attend and give
the beneht of his advice on the subject - , .
ject of editorials , he first located the
meeting i in O'Neill and last week called
" Editorial Associ
the "Platte Valley in
ation" : and calls the members liars for
pledging . themselves to not support any
candidate for the legislature who will ,
not agree to leave the rates for legal
printing alone. He says ' 'they would th
not dare refuse their party nominee the in
support of the paper , " and so saying he 10' [
jxhibits his own venality. Kerns is ho
of those who have
svidently one people an

aiit in this brazen fashion that he dares hii

Some of the writers on conditions of we
he cattle industry are inclined to take yc
gloomy j view of the decrease of cattle is
exports since the middle of last year ier
ind are disposed to attribute it entirely th :
Argentine and Australian competi til ;
tion. This competition has , of course ,
iiad its effect , but there are other facts wi
hat have exerted an influence upon N
foreign market. One is that there .
not been a sufficient supply of ani
mals suitable for the export trade , ami then
mother is that weather conditions in on
England for some time caused the inar- in
iets of that country to have a heavier nil
tiome supply than would have been offered ch
fered under normal conditions. The an
latter fact tends to reduce the native pi
supply upon the English market here- PI
ifter and give just that much more at
room ior American or other imported
Battle. The Australian and Argentine
competition may grow even stronger as wi
large purchases of Hereford , Short-
iiorn and Angus bulls will very much
improve the herds of those countries ,
the advantage in distance possessed.
the United States is a very import
one. Texas Journal *

Word comes from near Sparks that
a certain farmer persists in penning
his hogs on a spring branch which
runs by a widow's house much to that
lady's inconvenience and annoyance
as she has no other place from which
to procure water. He ought to be
compelled to move either his hog pen
or himself. This is a word whicn the *
wise will not overlook.
Cattle rustling is becoming quite
common once more in western Holt ,
Rock , Brown and Cherry counties , as
no less than three hundred head have
disappeared from ranches during the
past two weeks in ounches of from"r
ten to seventy-five head. The people
are up in arms about it and say that
the thieves must be caught and pros
ecuted. Atkinson Plain Dealer. tlW
