A youth of Ann Arbor , Michigan ,

In Indiana the law provides that
when a prisoner is lynched , the sheriff
under whoso care he was , shall lose h
office. This happened to the officer of
Sullivan county from whom a negro
was taken recently and lynched. Such
n law in the south might have a tend
onoy to prevent the frequent violations
of the law by Judge Lynch , but it is
probable that such a measure could not
be passed there.
An Omaha woman watched a burglar

Carrie Nation decided to go to the

they were not particularly anxious to

The fusion press and politicians have
Jiad their attention attracted by the vote
fqr the nominees of the socialist party
through the country and they urn un
doubtedly anticipating that the party
will in the not far dlntant future bo
something worth fusing with. The

happened to tlm populists as a result of

likely to object to that sohumo of wip

The Chicago thief who drove off ono
of Undo Gain's mail wagons during the
absence of the driver for a minute or
two , and rifled the contents of two val
unblo socks of mall , deserves to bo
classed with the most daring of daring
thieves. Ho is almost entitled to a
place along nldo of Pat Crowe in the

will bo demonstrated that Chicago is a
safer place in which to steal that ) would

Wo hear the same old talk about es
tablishing a newspaper iu Omaha for
the purpose of making it warm for the
Boo. The only trouble is that the
fellows engaged in the vouturo would
have to do business in an atmosphere
with a llttlo higher touiporaturo than
they could possibly create for the other
fellow. Bucking an old , established
newspaper is a good deal like kicking
the stump on which yon stubbed your

The Norfolk Press is the name of anew
now weekly paper that made its appear
ance in this city last Saturday , with P.
F. Sproohor's name as publisher. It is
a six-column quarto with four pag os of
homo print. Mr. Sprechor is ono of the
oldest in experience newspaper men
iu this Footlon of the state , nnd if ho is
convinced that there la a demand for
another paper in Norfolk his judgment
will not bo questioned , and his friends
will hope that ho may find qvou a better
patronage than a superficial view of the
situation would disclose.
The decision of the Nebraska supreme
court regarding the use of the Bible in
the public schools will bo a fruitful
theme for discussion in religions gather
ings for some time to come. The people
who are now the severest in their
criticisms might bo expected to bo the
first to favor a decision ruling out readings
ings or teachings from the Mohammedan
or Mormon books , of Mrs. Eddy's
Science aud Health. And yet
thoroughly impartial decision would
glvo any of these works the same privilege
lego as would bo given the Bible , if it
was desired.
All is not one smooth slide for the big
corporations aud companies. A case
has boon started iu an Iowa court for a
judgment of $3,500 against the Western
Union .Telegraph company by a firm
that sold a bunch of cattle to a man on
a worthless cheek because the man bad
represented himself as speaking for a
bank to a telegraph operator who acted
accordingly and was the moans of clos
ing the sale without making inquiries.
If the suit is won it will devolve upon
the telegraph company not only to
have reliable employes , but operators of
a character that will use the diplomacy
of a Oladtouo before they will accept
and deliver messages.
It is evident that the people are will
ing to trust a republican state treasurer
in spite of the fact that the party no-
cldently inflicted them with Bartloy.
Peter Mortensou's plurality for the
office was the largest of any of the suc
cessful candidates , receiving 16,012
over his opponent , J. N. Lyinan. In
spite of the fact that the present treas
nrer , William Steuffor , has been
roundly criticised for some of his transactions -
actions , it is but fair to concede that
the fine majority this year for the re
publican candidate is due largely to his
conduct of the affairs of that ofllce dnr
ing his two years' term. Now if Joe
Bartley would put it back it is but
reasonable to suppose that the people
would have none other but republican
treasurers hereafter.
It is stated that there will bo an effort
made at the coming session of the legts
latnre to have the Norfolk hospital for
the insane relocated. It iauot only prob
able but certain that there are people
in Nebraska who would abandon the
property on the hill and favor building
a new institution in another part of the
state , but the people of Norfolk will not
believe that there are any number who
would favor such an extravagant aud
unfair move ou the part of the legisla
ture. Extravagant because of the value
of the property to be abandoned and un
fair because Norfolk coutributod liber
ally to have the institution located hero
aud its offices were acceptable to the
members of the legislature and officials
who originally located the hospital.
Presdent Roosevelt , it is , alleged will
ercommend in his message that cougrees
undertake to regnluto trusts in regard to
over capitalization , lack of ptibllotj , dis
crimination In prices to destroy compe
tition , insufficient personal responsibil
ity of office nnd directors and tend
ency to monopoly and disregard of the
people. All this should bo done with *
out endangering the Industries that the
the trusttt control , It is a hard task
that the president has sot for congress
to perform , but it is the buHlnoHS-liko
plan to adjust a difficult proposition aiid
it is to bo hoped that the congressman
nud senators will go about the work in a
ninnuor that will insure nnccoBs. It
may bo mirmtiiod that the trusto will en
doftvor to prevent action detrimental to
their interests , but if they cannot exist
on n fair business basis , it is but just
that they should bo ruled out of the
business world.
While it Is a fad with reformers of all
typos nnd classes to fight the railroads
it is certain that the railroads have at
tained n development iu industry that is
astonishing to contemplate. It is also
certain that with no railroads the people
of the country would scarcely know how
to exist. Some estimation of what the
railroads of the country are able to ac
complish may bo approximated from the
report of ono day's work by the roads
entering Plttsbarg , PH. , and these are
but n small share of the roads of the
country. Speaking of what was done
at Pittsburg on Sunday a telegraph re
port says : "It is estimated that during
twenty-four hours , 030 trains , consist
ing of 40,225 cars wore moved in and
out of Plttsburg as follows : Pennsyl
vania , 1291 trains , 1-1,700 cars ; Fort
Wnvuo , ISO trains , 0,000 cars ; Panhandle -
handle , 215 trains , 12,205 cars ; Balti
more & Ohio , ninety trains , 4,500 cars ;
Pittsburg & Lake Erie , 120 trains , 0,000
cars. The estimated tonnage is 1,750 ,
550 , " Just fpr the sake of comparison
some man smart at figures , might show
how long it would have taken a number
of wagons , teams nnd men to do the
same work , or how many of them it
would require to do the same work in
the same length of timo.
Governor-elect Bally of Kansas is an
other who has learned that it is foolish to
make pro-election promises aud then fail
to keep them. Mr. Baily is a bachelor
but promised to become a benedict and
provide the now executive mansion at
Topeka with a mistress" . The widows ,
old maids and little girls donned their
fighting clothes nud wont after a fine
majority for Mr. Batly. They got it ,
and now ouo of them expects to draw
the prize promised but Mr. Baily is at
tempting to "crawfish. " The men are
seconding the women and the governor-
oleot is hi hot water with indications
that he must whether ho will or no.
His first excuse was tnat ho was unable
to find a woman who was willing to as
sume the responsibilities of the position ,
but h ° 1m8 recently boon enlightened on
that score by the Carrie Nations and
others , and really if Kansas was inca
pable of furnishing a bride it is not far
to the homes of those beautiful No
bratkans of whom bo has undoubtedly
road. That excuse was silly. Ho real
izes it now , nnd endeavors to plead a
previous and unrequited affection.
This will not avail. There are hundreds
of marriageable women who could con
vince him in a short time that such af
fection was merely a boyish affair of no
depth whatever. He is to be pitied if
he does not take the final step before
the day set for his { inauguration , else he
will bo unable to move because of the
crush of female loveliness at the event
Ho had best resort to a lottery scheme

The agitation for a new law govern
ing the liquor traffic in Nebraska is re
ceiving considerable attention in vari
ous parts of the state and it is beginning
to appear as though such a bill would be
presented to the coming legislature.
Some are advocating the dispensary law
iu force in South Carolina , while other
favor local option. While many are
provoked at the attitude of the liquor
men during the late election and would
bo pleased to rebuke them for the part
they took , it is but reasonable that the
other view of the situation should be
taken. It was emphatically denied by
the republicans that the success of their
tlck t meant any altering of the present
liquor law and the question was kept
under except where necessary to counteract -
act the influences of the liquor dealers
It was not a question of the campaign ,
aud it would be unfair for the legislature
to make a movement in that direction
without consulting the wishes of the
oeoplo. When it is desired to adopt n
radical measure , governing any class of
people or any business , it is but just that
e people should have same way of ex
pressing a preference. No mention of
changes in the liquor law was made
until after election , in fact any such in
tention was omphatcally denied , know
ing that even an intimation that Mr.
Mickey was a temperance man was
being used against him with effect. If ,
now that he aud a republican legislature
are elected , they should undertake to
revise or substitute a law that has not
received the attention of the people it
would be unfair and would result in an
agitation that would bo unfavorable to
temperance candidates iu the future.
It such a fight is to bo made it should be
open and fair , aud have the approval of
the voters.
Joe Cannon thinks it is now all over
but the shouting.
If you cau't bo thankful , you might

grontful for bountiful blessings would

The stealing of an express package
containing $40,000 from the Adams Ex

President Roosevelt has his annual

A Jittle slip in the isthmian canal

There is a company iu Illinois that
promises n person who sends it $3 down
and $2 additional for six months , aud se

not to exceed $100 at the end of the six
months. There are undoubtedly a largo
number of easy ones who would undertake -
take to gather in the amount promised
and for fear that tharo would be too
many "fish" in the country the United
States authorities huvo stopped in to
prevent the fool and hla money from

if many of those ho represents would

It is sometimes awkward to have n
common name. A family at Sac' City ,
Iowa , by the name of Miller had made

After all preparations wore made the

gave them more of a surprise than he

customary health. Mr. Carnegie has

stable demise with anything approach

It is intimated that several of the
Wall street moguls would not bo averse
to starting a little panic "to teach Roosevelt
velt to respect financial interests. " It
is hardly necessary. The president
does respect financial interests , but he
does not believe in giving said interests
an entire cinch on the government of
the country. The president will be
found standing up for labor and other
.nterests . quite frequently and all the
bluster of Wall street will not prevent
him from doing that which his excell
ent judgement.diotates as fair and right
to the people.
The Elkhorn road has discovered a
old rniuo , | or words to that effect , at
Belle Fonrche , S. D. , from which point
in the neighborhood of 100,030 range
cattle have been shipped during the
season just closing , and it is reported
that the range is in fine condition for a
start next season , with prospects that
the record will be exceeded next year.
It is believed thac Belle Fonrche is now
the largest cattle shipping point in the
west , aud there is no information avail
able to show that its record of the past
season has ever been exceeded. Those
who live in Elkhorn territory will be
pleased to know that there is a point on
that line of railway of such importance
to the cattle industry of the country.
The modern merchant is credited
with good business judgment who fig
ures on enough profits to re-imbnrso
him for bad account" , that he is almost
pertain to lose. With the increase in
the crime of stealing in recent years it
will bo almost necessary for business
men to add enough to their profits to
make up for the goods and profits they
lose through the operations of thieves.
The honest , trust-worthy people are
destined to bo the losers in both partic
ulars , and it is to their interest as much
as that of the merchant , to see that the
two practices are discouraged. A mer-
clmnt , to be successful , must have his
losses , and it will be to their advantage
to have such losses as small as possible.
The World Herald hns som how been

many people who would rather lose
what little wealth they have around
the house or on their poison than risk
their lives in offering resistance to the-
law-breaker. The law now protects ,
such defensive measures , but the a-
tomshing increase in such crimes
would seem to warrant it to go further

his own interests or those of another.
