We need money , and we need it at
once there is no use disguising the
fact any longer in , fact we must have
it. To economize the editor islittempt-
ing to do all the work of the office him
self , consequently he can't get out and
collect. He can't afford to offer , any
prizes for the purpose of stirring people
up , but he's hit upon another scheme ,
one by which YOU can make some
thing. Here it is :
To every subscriber who pays all ar
rearages in full to September 1st , ' and
One Dollar in advance , we will give a
receipt for Paid Up Subscription to
January 1 , 1901. Brands accordingly.
In other words , you will get the pa
per four or five months absolutely free
of charge. The NEWS-DEMOOKAT is
ordinarily opposed to schemes of this
kind , as there is no money in it in the
'long run , but this is an extraordinary
occasion , and we must have money ,
This offer is for cash only and will be
withdrawn September 1st. <
The republicans expect to hold their
nominating convention about October
1 , although this seems hardly neces
sary. All the candidates are already
picked out and unless Bob Lee , Dave
Hanna and Elv V alentine can smash
the combination the convention will be
automatic in its action.
" \Ye are reliably informed that John
Lord is a candidate for sheriff on the
fusion ticket , and his friends in town-
are pushing him forward with a vim
which auurs well for success.
nominated and elected John would
make a very efficient officer and one
who would reflect credit upon those
who support him.
If Mr. Morton will show that at any
time in our national history , during
the perion when we had free silver
coinage at the present ratio , a mellet
silver dollar was not-worth" as' much' asa

mission of tiie proofs , as a reward for
his labors , the Times will acknowledge
publicly that Morton is a democrat.
Papillion Times.
It is currently reported that Capt. A.
G. Fisher , of Chadron , is pushing 11.
It. Pickson , of O'Neill , for district"
judge , and many prophecies are made
to the effect that this insures Dickson's
nomination. The local agent of Fisher
has not yet promulgated such a sen
tence , but that argues not a thing.
Morgan seems to be getting the worst
of it all around , and there seems to be
some doubt about Alder being able to
control his home delegation , all of
which adds to the interest of the situ-
tion. Wood , of Kushville , is plugging
around trying to gather votes , with
poor success , and Wills , of Butte , is
lost in the shuffle. Personally we
would like to see Wood and Miller get
the nominations.
It is feared that the telegraph editor
of the State Journal will soon bo look
ing for another job. Monday morning
a dispatch , of which the following is a
portion , appeared on the iirst page of
that paper :
Johnstown , Pa. , Aug. 13. What is
probably the record for a big reduction
of wages will go into effect in the struc
tural department of the Cambria Steel
company tomorrow. The reduction
ranges between 70 and 80 per cent.
Think of it , ye apostle of McKinley-
high-tariff-gold-standard- - prosperity
perity ! c Wages reduced four-fifths ! Is
not this encouraging ? And then you
prate of your love for the workiugmaii
and tell him how much betttr off he is
here than is his brother in ' 'free trade
England and free silver Mexico. Just
think of it men who have been earn
ing $20 will now haye to take $4 for the
same amount of labor , or quit. But
the corporation won't care , oh , no. Jt
will find a lot of poor devils who to
keep soul and body together Avili accept
the low wages. But this cant last long
and one of these days the world will be
be startled with a dispatch in the city
papers reading something like this :
The Cambria Steel company has vol
untarily advanced the wages of a portion
tion of its employes over 100 per cent.
And when that dispatch appeers all
the administration papers will join in a
glad refrain and point to this "evidence
of "prosperity. " But readers of this
paper will know that this perceutnge of
increase vill bring wages up to orly
two-fifths of what they were before the.
reduction ! ' ,

The Commissioner of Public Lands
and Buildings will offer about 105,000
acres of school land for lease at public
auction at Vaientine at the office of the
county treasurer , beginning at 9 a. m.
Sept. 7th 199 under the following pro
vision of the new school land law :
If after using due diligence to lease said land ,
at an annual rental of six ser cent upon the ap
praised valuation , the Commissioner is unable
to do so , he may offer the same for lease at less
than the appraised valuation and leosc it to the
person or persons who will pay six per cent on
the highest offered valuation , as annual rental ,
if in his judgment it is to the best interest or the
state to accept such bid.
Persons desiring to examine lands to
be leased may secure lists of the same ,
showing present appraisement thereof ,
as well as any other information , upon
application to the county treasurer or
by addressing the commissioner at Lin
coln. At the beginning of the auction
the Commissioner will gladly answer
all inquiries in regard to the school land
business or the workings of the new law
The list of lauds referred to will be
found on page fivs of this paper

At Bill ngs last week a train of 560
horses from Washington were unloaded
for feed and water while cnroute to
South Omaha and within 2-1 hours 125

this condition is a mystery. Several of

Prices Compare I With Last year.
The nrst shipment of Swan's natives
arrived in Omaha last year on August
1st , averaged 1,200 pounds , and sold at
an average price of § 4r.2o. The first
shipment this year arrived July 31 , av
eraged 1,151 in weight , and sold for
% ± 65 straight. Speaking of this Clay ,
Robinson's Report says : "Add to this
the value of fully lOc in favor of the
1898 shipment by reason of heavier
weight , and the increased value for this
year will be found to exceed 50e per 100
pounds. We think it is a conservative
statement to say that the difference in
price mentioned Tepresents the advan-
tage.of this year's market over last.
