The O'NoJH frontier jabs a thorn \n \ a
nero spot when It says : "Thoso 10,000
voters that the fnsloulBts have boon
olixlinlng were brought back to Nebraska
by the republicans last year to vote must
have become permanent residents. "
Wnyno county was ono of the few
that backslid a llttlo. Last year it gave
Dietrich a majority of 170. This year
Sedgwick'H plurality is 150. The re
publicans there should coaco their
quarreling and nnlto against the com
mon enemy.
The Wahoo Democrat of Sauudors
county thinks the returns from that
count } ' indicate that there was fusion
Iwtwcon the populibts and republicans.
A good many individuals of various
parties have been fused by republican
prosperity and republican good govern
ment.
The Fremont Tribune would now like
the fusionists to state whether the late
campaign in Nebraska was fought on
ntato or national issues. The fusion
press was confident i ( ; know what the
issues were before election but they
probably know nothing of thorn by
this time.
Church ladies are accredited with
many curious and devious methods of
enticing the modest nnd elusive dime ,
.ranging from teas to bloomer parties ,
bnt perhaps the latest idea is a , "ceme
tery dinner"which must be appropriate
and meet the requirements of not u few
churches.
Among the counties that turned polit
ical snmmoisahlts at the Into election
were Holt and Antelope counties , two
fusion strongholds that wont republi
can by good majorities iwd elected al
most nil republican county candidates.
Antelope gave Sodgwick 228 majority.
No wonder Nebraska 'republicans are
cheerful.
If Nebraska must bo represented at
the St. Louis world's fair TUB NBWS is
hero to suggest that the people relieve
the state of the burden of making such
nu exhibit and that the funds bo raised
by popular subscription. That the exi
hibit then bo something original and of
benefit to the state.
Last year Thurston county gnvo Die
trich n majority of 88. This year it
went for Sodgwiok almost two to one ,
giving him a majority of 807 while Hoi-
enbeck received but 39G votes. This is
the county where Editor Mosea Warner ,
who a year ago deserted republicanism
for populism , lives. With a few more
.flops Thurston would go it unanimous.
The dailies report that the beef supply
of'the country is endangered. If thia is
a scheme of the plutocratic cattle
raisers to raise the price of that neces
eity Mr. Bryan can well afford to get
his sword and his pistol and go out in
defense of the common people , most of
whom eat beef when they can get it as
they have been doing with the aid of re
publican prosperity.
Tbo Kansas convicts who broke jail
may have secured a brief liberty bnt
many of them paid for it at terrible cost
and it is safe to presume that nouo enjoyed -
joyed it , When a person is punished
by the law , experience teaches that the
better way is to patiently submit unless
liberty can be secured through the
B or by pardon. There are few
who tire permitted long to otijoy liberty

Cure I'roicntH Condition.
The question of compulsory vacchm
tiou is being strongly agitated in the
state and Superintendent Fowler has
ruled that boards nro empowered to
compel the vaccination of children or
refuse them admittance to the schools.
The need of precaution to prevent an
epidemic of smallpox or other infcctous
diHease is apparent and the people
should bo willing to co-operate with of
lloials in preventing or stamping out the
disease. Many people would bo glad if
there were BOUIO other method of pro-
volition and not a few believe that there
are , than by vaccination ,
Recently people have come to fear iu >
nooulation almost as much as the dis
ease. The experience at St. Louis with
anti-toxin , the number of serious re
suits from vaccination , late of which is
that of n Now Jersey boy lying
death's door from lock jnw , nro tending
to increase this opposition to what i
popularly considered the only preventive
ivo of smallpox
While this may not establish n righ
for people to refuse vaccination if tin
order of officials command it , certainly
it should result in compelling the use o
pure nud healthy virus.
No person will wish to take sovora'
disonses into his system for the purpose
of preventing one. But if n person
should not wish to toke the vacoin
preventive ho should certainly comply
with the other alternative of official
making such a ruling.
THE NBWS believes that a person
having such a disease and not taking tin
proper precaution to prevent infection
of others is guilty of criminal negligence
and should be prosecuted , or at least ru <
quired to isolate himself. With the , exercise
orciso of proper core by the people theri
would bo absolutely no need of prevon >
lvesnud no epidemics. When they Vf il
not do this , however , th y force others
to submit to inconveniences that they
ore not ready to undergo. A rooou
case in Norfolk emphasizes the fact tha
some people have absolutely no concop
tiou of the rights or the privileges o :
others. They nro extremely selfish and
if a rigid law could be enforced in such
cases it would mightily please all citi
zeus. When people will not use
voluntarily they should be forced to
so. Norfolk ut present has no opidoml
and n proper precaution would proven :
one , and that should be required in one
way or another , the most satisfactory
method being for people having a cpn
tagious disease to prevent its spread. t < ;

Time to Call u Unit.
Governor Savage has given it out thai
he favors the idea of Nebraska ninkin
a big display nt the St. Louis exposition
in 190 ! ) . Ho does not , however , regnp
it as judicious to call n special session
of { he legislature for the purpose
making an appropriation of funds fo
that purpose. Ho suggests that a fun
be raised by private subscription suill
oieutly large to make a creditable exhibl
at the big show. He believes , ho says
the next legislature will reimburse th
Conors and thereby convert the private '
subscription into a Hta'o obligation , thus
obviating the nxpi'MNC of a notion of the
It'glhlnturi ) , and I ho dnn cnt of ono with
none too good a reputation at best.
Thorn IH precedent for this procedure ,
t may bo found in the advancement of
loney to bring the Nebraska troops
omo from Hiin FianeiHco , and its
epaymont by the legislature nt its last
CHftion , Hut there will bo n greater dl >
/talon of muniment than in the matter I
f bringing homo the troops , There nro |
miny persons who will not bo dtaposod
o consider the ono as patriotic a pur-
> OHO as the other.
The Tribune bollnvcs the fltato should
nnko no appropriation for the St. Louis
xpqsition. Nebraska is n part of the
joulfllana purchase that can afford to
; ot along without it. The condi- '
ion of the state treasury Is not
itich ns to justify an appropriation
'or ' that purpose. Already there JH moro
him a million dollars of floating indobt
Warrants for that amount arp
now outstanding nnd drawing intercut.
Svory Houston of tie | legislature seoa ni |
ucrvaslug deficiency in the cost of state
iiBtitutioiiH , Of Into the state 1ms suf-
'orod heavy IOHBOS by fire In the burning
f the penitentiary nnd the Norfolk nsy-
nin. These must bo u'mdo good nnd
ho public debt therein' smaller. Siini-
ar institutions elsewhere nro constantly
calling for increased appropriations and
ho debt grows and grows.
It IH time to talce some practical stop
o got out of debt nnd prevent incronH-
ng taxation. Nebraska has indulged
n a good deal of exposition luxury in
ate years. It made a good appropria-
lon for the Chicago fair. It nuido u
nrgor one fqr the Omaha exposition.
There was a second Omaha exposition
carried on by private capital , This year
ho flto.tp had n modest exhibit nt Buf
falo. It also invested $50,000 in n state
'air ' site. In view of nil this wo believe
t about time to call n halt on exposition
ixpeuditurps. An exhibit of n clean
balance sheet vfould bo a bettor advpr-
isomout than n display of alfalfa and
corn. Wo believe the tax-payees of
Nebraska are ready to forego the latter
n the interest of the former. Fremont

SOLDIERS READY FOR THEM.
Insurgents Attempt to Re
peat Tactics of Sqmar Rebels.
Manila , Nov. 12. Major William L.
Ditcher of the Eighth regiment of In-
'nntry , commanding the Mindoro ox-
: iotltlois ( , reports that the garrison of
Abra do Hog was attacked yesterday
by n force of Insurgents commanded
by Leiiocoa. The Filipinos apparent-
y attempted to repeat the Samar tac
tics , but the Americans , who wore
breakfasting , fully armed , completely
outed the Insurgents , who left flvo
uen dead on the field , each having n
rlllo and ammunition. Quo American
ivas seriously wounded.
Captain Noyes of the Thirtieth In-
'nntry , commanding 'n ' detachment of
50 men , has captured n deserter
named Klchtor of the Sixth artillery ,
wearing the uniform of an Insurgent
lieutenant.
Major Pitcher says ho recently
captured three officers and a largo
part of an Insurgent company , all fully
armed. It Is bolloved the Insurgents
recently received nn Illicit supply of
munitions of war.
The insurgents In Snmar nrss flockIng -
Ing northward. They are suffering
greatly from famine. Many Isolated
bolomen hnvo surrendered. Only fear
caused by Lukbnn's proclamation ,
threatening with death those who sur
render , prevents a general submission
of the Insurgents , but It Is expected
this will bo assured In a few days.
KILLS IOWA SPORTING MAN.
Anna Crawford at Clinton Fatally
Shoots Jenks Dillon.

San Francisco , Nov. 12. Gus Ruhlln ,
who Is to meet James Jeffries on Fri

popular favor and yesterday crept up
In the betting BO that the local odds
are holding fairly steady , at 2 to 1.
where but a few days ago a consider
able sum of money changed hands at

has reached here from Chicago , has
expressed confidence In Ruhlln's
chances and looks for the adveut of anew

Bulgaralna Continue to Embarrass Ne
gotiations nnd Are O'ficlally Noti
fied of Uncle Sam's Attitude Con
sul General Dickinson Places Blame.
Sofia , Bulgaria , Nov. 11. Informa
tion has boon received hero from
Doitbnttza , that the band of brigands
holding captive Miss Ellen M. Stone ,
the American missionary , called about
fortnight ngo at the village of
Smetchevo , nnd subsequently pro
ceeded to the monastery of Ililo , but
the movements of the troops com
pelled the brlgnnds to flee toward the
frontier , where they nre now In hid
ing. It Is also asserted that lUio bri
gands have recently been treating
Miss Stone with moro severity In or
der to oxcrclso pressure and to com
pel a more ready acceptance of their
conditions.
Consul General Dickinson Is Inflexi
ble. He Insists that the surrender of
Miss Stone must precede or bo sim
ultaneous with the payment of the
ransom. His attitude Is justified by
the known determination of sonic
members of the band , particularly the
captain , Ynnno Sandansky , to kill
Miss Stone nnd her companion ns
soon ns the ransom Is received , owing
to the fact that the captives have now
acquired Information regarding the
secret committees.
Competent persons , however , ex
press the opinion that the cupidity of
the brigands will overcome their fears
of revelation , nnd nil such approve
the declaration of Mr. Dickinson.
Yesterday Mr. Dickinson made ener
getic representations to the Bulgarlnn
government ngajnst the movement of
the Bulgarian troops , reproaching the
ofllcinlp with the fact that notwith
standing their solemn promises to
give all the assistance In their power ,
their action ws embarrassing the ne
gotiations regarding a settlement and
placing In jeopardy the life of Miss
Stone. He made a declaration that
the Bulgarian government would beheld
held responsible for the death of Miss
Stone and of all the -consequences of
her death , should It be proved that
the attitude of the Bulgarian government
mont forced the brigands to kill their
captives.
