Tenths l History MlHHtnted
Tho littlo Americans aro constantly
referring to the Declaration of Inde
pendence as the sheet anchor of thoir
hopes and tho basis of thoir opposition
to the holding of tho Philippines Thoy
quoto from that immortal document
precious to every American citizen
copiously and dwell upon certain phrases
expressed therein as settling tho whole
Their deductions aro that wo have no
moral right to pursue tho presont policy
of establishing law and order on those
islands Hut like many other roasouors
thoy push their logic very much further
than the real facts of tho caso will war
It is true that Thomas TelVorson wroto
that all men aro created equal and that
they am endowed with tho unalienable
rights of lifo liborty aud tho pursuit of
happiness It is also tnto that Thomas
TolTersou was a slave holder aud that ho
did not consider tho black mon who
worked for him either ns his equals or
as free
When tho American colonists decided
to protest against tho tyranny of tho
government of King George tho Third
they frankly gave to tho world their rea
sons for so doing Thoy martialled a
sories of indisputable facts in behalf of
thoir position that wero so impregnable
as to compel tho respect of mankind
Can Aguinaldo have ground for declar
ing tho causes of a rising of his follow
ors ngainst a government which never
had oppressed thorn and had no inten
tion of doing so
These men of Sill who havo called to
their aid tho men of Tit imply that Jef
fersons declaration justifies revolt from
a government which does not concede
political independence to any commun
ity that demands it It is strange that
intelligent Americans at this lato day in
tho history of tho nation should contend
for such a principle It is no loss than
the destructive proposition of Jefiorsou
Davis revamped Tho nation gave
thousands of lives aud millions of treas
ure in a long four years war to sottlo
tho fallacy of such a view of govern
Tho declaration of 1770 based tho right
of independence on tho fact that the
rights of lifo liborty and pursuit of hup
piuess had been denied them They
had no quarrel with the English govern
ment in itself They took up arms us a
last resort merely as a matter of self
preservation They were very careful
to make a clear expression of the motives
which prompted them Read it
When a long train of abuses and usur
pations pursuing invariably tho same
object evinces a design to reduce them
under absolute despotism it is their
right it is their duty to throw off such
Is there any parallel between thoso
men and what they endured and Aguin
aldo and his motives Has the United
States denied abridged or destroyed tho
life liberty or happiness of tho Filipinos
Iu tho clear light of history will any
seusiblo enlightened American compare
tho actions of the noble christian gou
tlomau who as president has directed af
fairs at Mauila with tho tyrnuuical
stnbboruuess of Georgo tho Third
Tho contention is so incompatible with
tho record of events that it is unjust to
tho fathers of tho republic aud an insult
to the intelligence of the country
The trouble is that these timid souls
who shrink from moetiug tho burdens
imposed upon us sjeuil their time in

Tho era of depression has passed away
and in its placo a spirit of hopefulness
and contontmont with existing condi
tions has come about
Tho furmors of Nebraska havo beon
doing well thoso last two years and from
poverty and distress have stopped to tho
front slowly but surely until thoy aro
recognized as tho class who havo not
only a competence but in not infrequent
instances positivo wealth Theso val
ues aro not only found in increasing
looks and herds enlarged wheat hold
ings nnd longer corn cribs but the bank
books of tho different financial institu
tions iu this and othor communities will
show haudsomo deposits of cash funds
as well
Tho farmers of Nobraska havo made
money and thousands of dollars worth
of mortgages havo beon paid and real
ownership of fertilo acres has taken
placo in consequence
Agricnltnro is everywhere tho only
true basis of a dofiuito and lasting pros
perity and this is especially true in n
commonwealth like this
Tho evidence that prosperity exists is
found iu tho larger stocks of goods that
aro being carried by merchants the ad
mitted fact that collections are better
and that sales are larger than over be
fore Auction sales of farm stock im
plements aud household goods this spring
have not only been very largely attend
ed but what is significant tho sales
made have been largely cash sales
Nothing proves that the farmers have
money inoro than this
These facts are naturally attracting to
this state many settlers from the east
and the tide of immigration is more pro
nounced than for some years past
Many of these uowcomers are from
Iowa Illinois Wisconsin and Indiana
Thoy are mon of means and large ex
perienco and thoy see the opportunity of
a lifo time to sell their high priced hold
ing in thoso states and reinvest iu the
equally fortilo but much lowor priced
lauds this side the Missouri
Not only farm laud but city property
in tho different centers of population is
bound to feel tho effects of this iutlux of
capital and industry
Thero has never been a time when tho
outlook fora suro and substantial growth
iu values to owners of Nebraska real
estate was as flattering as it is now
Every department of business is sure
to have enlarged prosperity because of it
If thero is a good crop harvested with
in tho borders of tho state this year the
next two years will see not a boom but
a development so prosperous aud phe
nomenal in its way that it will bring
blessing and wealth to all kiuds of hon
est industry and to all classes of honest
toilors It Is a timo when every mnn
can nllbril to bo sanguine
Land Commissioner MacAllistcr says
There hns not been a timo during tho
pnst docado when tho prospects wore so
bright for Nobraska as now Fanning
has brought good returns during the last
fow years and men arc quitting the
stony lands of tho cast and coming out
here They are not going south now
but instead havo started west and thero
is nothing that can stop them If thero
is a ood crop this sensoif thero will bo
tho biggest land boom in tho history of

Hurlingtou road speaking of immigra
tion says
Thousands of men who camo hero

buy oithor city property or farm lands
I feel safe in snyiug that boforo tho end
of six months tho agricultural districts of
this state will 1k participating in a move
ment that will bo much akin to a real
est at o boom
Testimony such as this from mon who
keop in close touch with the movements
of tho pooplo aro worth something Ne
braska is all right 1
Thero aro few conimonwoalths that
havo tho prospect for such marked
growth in wealth and population duriug
the next decade as it does
Tho opportunities aro here as thoy
aro offered in but few sections nnd they
are going to bo taken advuntago of by
tho host blood and brawn of tho country

From Mondays Daily
City Clerk Stilt received tho following
letter this morning from the attorney
gonoral concerning the Second ward tie
Lincoln April M Mr J C Stitt
clerk of tho city of Norfolk Norfolk
Nob Dear sir Your letter of the 12th
was duly received in which you submit
to mo for my opinion a question resting
substantially on this stuto of facts
At the election recently held In your
city It was found that two candidates
for tho position of alderman received
each tho same number of votes j that tho
mayor after duo notico had beon given
to tho candidates instructed you as
city clerk to draw for tho purposo of
deciding tho tio j and that you refused
to do so on tho ground that you hud no
legal right to niako such drawing
Tho official business of this ofllco is
such as to precludo mo from making a
careful examination of this question but
from a casual examination thereof I nin
of tho opinion that you oro right
There is nothing in tho statuto gov
erning cities of tho Becond class having
over oOOO inhabitants which authorizes
bucIi an action on your part In fnct
there is uothiug thero which provides
for such a caso as the ono under consid
eration Nor can I find anything in any
part of tho statutes which does so Truo
in the caso of tho Stnto vs Bowman 45
Nebr 7VJ tho court through Mr Com
missioner Ryan intimates that tho
statuto governing county elections
might be applied by analogy to elections
in cities of tho second class but tho
court does not decide that and I do not
think that this is tho law
1 repeat however that I have not
given this matter that careful attention
which I would like to givo to it but
which I cannot give it owing to pressure
of official business
Very truly yours

lives a happy wife She writes I
have used Mothers Friend before
two confinements The last time I had
twins and was in labor only a few min
utes Suffered very little The reason
Mothers Friend
does expectant mothers so much
good is because it is an external liniment
to be applied upon the outside where
much of the strain comes It helps be
cause the pores of the skin readily absorb
it and it comes into direct contact with
and is absorbed by the parts involved
Morning sickness is quickly banished
and nervousness is kept completely away
The sense of dread and foreboding is not
experienced even during labor itself
Confinement is short and almost without
pain Recovery is quick and sure Best
of all Mothers Friend benefits the
unborn just as much as the expectant
mother and when the lite one comes it
will be strong lusty and healthy
