Senator Mason , of Illinois , intro
duced the following resolution in con
gress last week. Of course it won't be
passed , but we feel safe in saying that
it undoubtedly represents the views of
most Americans :
Whereas from the hour of achieving
their own independence the people of
the United Mutes have regarded with
sj'mpathy the struggles of other people
to free themselves from European dom
ination : Therefore ,
Resolved by the Senate of the United
States , That we watch with deep and
abiding interest the heroic battle of the
South African Republic against cruelty
and oppression , and our best hopes go
out for the full success of their deter
mined contest for liberty.
The Nebiaska Independent analyzes
the vote of Cherry count } ' at the recent
election as follows :
In 1897 , Cherry cotintv east 123&
votes for Post and Sullivan.
Sullivan's majority 12-1.
In 1898 , Cherry county cast 1.115
votes for Ilayward and Poynter , a loss
of 123 in total vote. Of this loss o came
oil the republicans and 118 off the fusionists -
sionists , making a net loss of 113 for
Poyntor's majority , 9.
In 1899 , Cherry county cast 1,270
votes for Reese and Ilolcomb , a gain of
38 over 1897 and 161 over 1S98.
Compared , to 1897 , the gain of 88 in
total vote went to Reese , and in ad
dition 39 fusionists felt like upholding
the Sulu treaty by voting the republi
can ticket , a net gain of 161 for the re
Compared to 1898 , the republicans
gained 82 , fusionists 79 , a net gain of 3
for the former.

There was never a more infamous
falsehood printed than the constant
assertion that the Dingley bill has
produced a surplus in spite of our enor
mous war expenses. In the first place
there were bonds issued to the amount
of $200,000,000. Next there was a Avar
tax imposed. That tax brought to the
treasury , according to U. S. Treasurer
Robert's report , last year $46,553,419
in increase of customs and § 102,530.520
increase from internal revenue. Here
is an increase of taxation , outside of
the Dinglev bill , which has put into
the treasury $148,089,939. Even this
enormous increase , added to the hiirh
tariffs of the Dingley bill , will not pay
the expenses of this government under
McKinley and imperialism. The pres
ent rate of expenditure ) is almost as '
great as in 18G3 and 1864. and is greater - '
er than any other year of our history as \
u nation. In those two years we had
over a million soldiers in the field fighi-
iug the most bloody battles of all his
