During December last, the nation al debt was reduced $9,100,000. Ax earthquake occurred the other day at Page, Texas. No damage re ported. The Adams Express Co., lack $ 13, 000 of the full amount stolen by robbers. Asa Gbiggs, "a newsboy" of Nash ville, Minn., is said to be eighty years old. Mbs. Gen. McClellan, it is said, has realized $10,000 from the sale of her late husband's book. Charleston was again 6haken op by earthquake shock the other morn ing. No injury reported. Late news from Vienna states that Austrian Jews are being expelled by the wholesale from Odessa and Wo locuska. The signal service for the past week or two have made very correct predictions of the approaching weather. Twenty-eight of the thirty-nine counties of Washington Territory have elected women as school tuper intendents. Charles B. Fabwell and Dick Oglesby are aspirants for the U. S. Senate iu Illinois to succeed John A. Logan, deceased. It ib officially announced in the London news of last week that the meeting of parliament has been post poned till February. Queen Victoria haB ordered a tea sot of fifty pieces of Burmese ware to be made for her by a New Bed ford, Mass., manufacturer. The first house bill was to provide for two judges in this (the Fourth) j udicial district. The second was for the repeal of tho railroad commission law. Jon.v Roach of Now York, the great ship builder, was reported last, week as dying from the effects of a cancer located in the roof of Ins mouth. The Supremo court of Nebraska has decided that a city is liable for damages when, in consequence of it6 negligence in removing snow from sidewalks, a man falls and injures himself. Nathan Merriman has contribut ed $4,000 toward the building of a "Home for the Friendless" at Omaha. The proof is strong that Omaha baa one more good hearted and sympa thetic citizen. The citizens of Omaha and Doug las county are called upon to vote on a proposition to give the Fremont, Elkhorn & Niseouri Valley road $75, 000 iu bonds to help build a track from Arlington to Omaha. The senate has passed a bill allow ing a pension of $2,000 a year to Mary S. Logan, widow of Gen. Lo gan. Also a similar bill increasing the pension ot the widow of Frauds P. Blair to $2,000 a year. The following named fourth class postmasters in Nebraska will be raised to the presidential class Janu ary 1: Blue Hil!, Ord and Wayne. The salaries of these postmasters will be raised from $1,000 to $1,300 a year. Rev. Chas. H. Savage, of Spring field, Neb., and pastor of the M. E. church, at that place, was reported by dispatch from Papillion tho other evum.g to his son iu Omaha, as hav ing been thrown from a sleigh and very seriously, if not fatally, injured. Theodore Smith, engineer and manager of A. G. Scott & Son's ele vator and farms at Axtell, Neb., got caught the other day in a line shaft, tearing his clothes in strips, breaking three ribs and inflicting several bruis es. It is thought he will not recover. The enemies ot Soualor Vau Wyck seem weakening in their opposition. It doe6 really seem that the Senator will be his own successor. ills friends in the legislature will do well to sleep with .one eye open until after the election. Miis Tillie Swanson, an employe in the City Steam laundry at Omaha, was terribly Injured the other morn ing by having both hunds caught and crushed iu the ironing machine; her arm was broken and mangled to such an extent that immediate ampu tation was necessarv. A street car at Beatrice, Neb., the other morning became unmanage able and went swiftly down the hill until it came to a turn in the track, where it jumped several feet into a deep ditch injuring Mrs. Parker and Mi6S Duboise, the former seriously. A telegram of new6 from Men doea says it is expected that the cholera epidemic will jield to the stringent measures adopted by the municipality. Buenos Ayres has voted $50,000 for the relief of the sufferers at Mendoza. Many families Lave arrived in Buenos Ayres from that place. Hon. C. D. Casper, state Senator from Butler county writes to bis paper, tue Press, that the senate is in the bands of the railroad machine, bnt that the house is, he thinks, all right on the re-election of Van Wyck and the adjustment of railroad legis lation; that, "if the election of United States Senator were to come off now, Van Wyck would get there in fine shape, but, there is no certain- ij as to what tbe 'barrels' will do." That Bridge Propositi. No right-minded man in the county will thoughtlessly or maliciously vote agaiu6t the proposition to be acted npon next Tuesday. It is very plain and can be understood by all. No additional levy is to be made on Platte county, if the proposition should carry. It will simply author ize that $10,000 now unappropriated in tbe connty treasury, be placed alongside of $7,000 furnished by the City of Columbus, to be used in tbe construction of a bridge across the Loup. This will give a fund that will secure a solid, substantial structure, and it is an improvement necessary to the welfare of the county, a considerable portion of which lies south of the river to be bridged. Those people are entitled to a safe highway leading to and from the county seat, and nothing but a policy of tho meanest selfishness will deprive tbem of this convenience. The section of country more im mediately interested pays a very con siderable portion of all the taxes that are raised in the county and thus are justly entitled to consideration. Besides all this, the general interests are sufficient and full foundation for an affirmative vote by every man. What helps one helps all, Every prosperous market in tbe county benefits every property holder within the limits of the county, and increases the value of his merchandise or busi ness, his bouseB and his lands. There is no doubt about this. The better roads and bridges, the better market towns; the better markets, the greater the price of farm lauds tribu tary thereto, and the greater induce ments for settlement and improve ment ; the denser the popul&tiou, the greater facilities lor improvement again, and so it goes on. One man in a business might just as well con clude that he has a pre-emption on the same and endeavor to bar out all comers, as lor any section of a county to act on a like principle with another section where its welfare, nay its very existence as a prosperous element of the county depeuds upon, not generosity, but simply fair deal ing. The public improvement pro posed will be well worth the money ; the amount proposed now lays idlo in the tieasury. This section of the count' asks special consideration of her needs and the proportion of taxes she pays into the county treasury. Do your own best in terests justice by saying "yes" to the proposition next Tuesday. EiCKialatmre. The Nebraska Legislature organ ized Tuesday of last week by the election of the following officers for-the Senate : President, George D. Meikle-' john; Secretary, Walter M. Seely ; First Assistant Secretary, Vint C. Shicklcy; Second Assisteut Secre tary, E. O. Lewis; Clerk of the Com mittee of the whole, J. O. Easterday ; for Sergeant at ArmB, W. D. Wild man; for assistant, Irvin Westover; for Chaplain, Rev. J. G. Tate; Post master, Perry Walker; Assistant Postmaster, James Ireland ; for Door keeper, J. W.'Brush ; First Apsistant, T. M. Saunders; Second Assistant Joel Purcell; for Enrolling Clerk, Mrs. Nellie DePue ; for Engrossing Clerk, Miss A. B. Olmstead ; J. R. Simpson and W. Ebberson were ap pointed janitor and assistant, and H. Windell mail carrier. In the House N. V. Harlan was elected speaker and Brad Slaughter chief clerk. On the day following, tbe House continued its organization by elect ing T. M. Cook, first assistant clerk. Miss Nellie Worham, enrolling clerk and Miss Janet McDonald engross ing clerk. Rev. P. Van Fleet was elected chaplain and H. P. Cutting sergeant at arms. At this point of the proceedings the House passed a resolution giving the speaker author ity to select all further officers neces sary to carry on the work of the session. Subsequently tho elerk an nounced tnat tne bpeaker nan ap pointed Mr. Doran assistant sergeant at arms, T. B. Beach, assistant door keeper, Mrs. Kate Boyle, postmis tress, Mr. Hendricks, mail carrier, David Cook, janitor, G. A. Lyson, assistant janitor, Frank Alley, llobt. Stovens, Julia Fuller, Miss Lyons, Dell Root and Johnnie Mathieson pages. So far as we have learned the Nebraska legislature has been or ganized by the election of republi cans to all tbe principal trusts. We don't know who the man is that now writes the "Topics" de partment of tbe Lincoln Journal, but whoever he may be it Is well enough to say to him that in his war fare against Senator Van Wyck he has o'ei stepped the bounds ot de cency and outraged tnat sense of fair-play which all men entertain. It is proper enough to combat a man's opinions, to oppose him in bis ambitions, to compasB his defeat for office by just means, but to speak of a manias a physical monstrosity is going a little too far. That method of warfare will, however, not injure Van Wyck any. It only shows tbe weakness of the man who indulges in such remarks. It reminds of the fashion of children who make faces when they wish to vent their spleen and dare not strike a fair blow. A railroad horror occurred the other morning near Tiffin, Ohio, by a fast train on the B. & O. road col lided with an east-bound freight, wrecking both trains, cars telescoped into one. Eighteen bodies have been taken from the wreck and many others were injured. Maimed and dying paseengers slowly burned to death. Fred. Betzold, a lumber deal er at Rushville, Neb , was a passen ger at tbe time on the smoking car but made his escape. The Omaha division of the Wa bash road was sold the other day for $1,400,000. It is said E. N. Sbelton of New York bid it in for tbe bond- I holders. Etfaa's Lat Speech. General Logan's last public speech was delivered at a G. A. R. camp fire in Youngstown, O., November 18, a little more than five weeks ago. In the course of bis remarks he said : "I believe in pensioning every soldier living that went into the service either for a short or long term, who was wounded in service or contract ed disease, or has since, through no fault of his own, become disabled. I believe in pensioning every soldier that has arrived at tbe age of sixty two. Pass that kind of a law and justice would be done." Ex. Dispatches received the other morning at Baltimore from West minister, Frederick, Emmetsborg and other towns in western Maryland stated that the inhabitants had been awakened from their sleep by violent loud rumbling noises In the earth, which was first heard at 11:30 at night and continued at intervals till morning. No damage was done so far as known, but as the country is mountainous the people are appre hensive of grave trouble. After the violent gale and un usually heavy snow storm reported in London Tuesday of last week a rapid thaw set in throughout the country. The storm did great dam age to the grounds around Bucking ham palace. In Hide Park, London, trees werE biown down and all over tbe country telephone and telegraph wires were destroyed and railway trains impeded. Nearly eighty years have passed since Prince Wilbelm, now German Kaiser, a lad of ten, had his commis sion as ensign of the foot guards handed to him. Strictly speaking, the eightieth anniverpary of this event has not arrived, but popular im patience haB outstripped the flight of time, and all Berlin on the 1st ot Jan. was celebrating tbe Kaiser's military jubilee. News from Melbourne states mai the German steamer Preussen, from Breman via Port Said, has arrived with a caso of small pox on board and was quarantined. The disease spread to twenty-four other persons. Thir ty paeeengers who were landed at Sidney have also taken sick. News Htea. It is now Gov. John M. Thayer. The funeral of General Logan took place last Friday at 12 o'clock in the Senate chamber of the United Statep. President Cleveland was re ported last week quite indisposed, but in the latter part of the week much better. The General Land Office received reports last week showing the re moval of fences from twenty enclos ures embracing over 275.000 acres of land, principally in the Denver land district Quite a fire occurred the other morning at Sioux City, destroying the building of Hedges & Anderson on Fourth (Main) street, corner of Nebraska, causing a total loss of $23,000. Mrs. Logan was reported last week as recovering slightly from her prostration, and found relief from her mental anguish in consulting with friends regarding arrangements for the funeral. The legislature of Illinois stands sixteen republican majority on joint ballot, and doubtless a republican will be elected to fill the vacancy in the United States senate occasioned by the death of General Logan. Charles Burgee, a farmer living near Rushville, Neb., came home the othor evening and found his wife and three children dead. IHb wife in his absence had suddenly been seized with a violent fit of insanity and kill ed the children and then cut her own throat. A. C. Wright, a one-armed farmer, came into Elwood, Neb., the other day, and his horses became frighten ed at an engine, ran away, overturn ing the wagon and throwing the man out with his head against a piece of frozen earth. He died in an hour afterwards from bis injuries. W. K. Soulter, of New York, formerly of the banking firm of W. K. Soulter & Co., which failed over a year ago, with heavy liabilities, has been indicted by the grand jury for grand larceny. It is asserted that the accused has applied $180,000 of tbe estate of bis grandfather to his business. A fire broke out the other morn ing in the basement of the Temple Theater in Philadelphia. The theater balongs to W. M. Singerly, proprie tor of the Philadelphia Record and cost $400,000. During the fire the roof fell in, burying three firemen with it. One of the men was dug out alive and tla other two could not then be reached. SaKSentleas f lertelasrs. From all sources, we wish togivfe, under this head, what we can gather that may be of interest to represen tatives and senators elect, and of pos sible benefit to the people of Ne braska. We ask private citizens who have suggestions of amendment to our laws, attorneys who see where justice might be better secured, county officials who realize wherein statutes can be bettered, to send us what they have to say. Ed. Jour nal. One thing that the coming legis lature should do is to cause tbe pub lication of the new laws in at least one paper in each county. Passing laws to which all tbe citizens of tbe state are amenable and then hiding them in high-priced calf-bound vol umes to be retailed out by lawyers at a high rate is not just the proper thintr. It is also absura to assert ma: a man is "supposed" to be acquainted with the Uwe when in factt has J had no possible chance to form their acquaintance. Enlightmrnt in one ot the prerequisites of good citiz9nhip and a little annual expense to the state for the purpose of making her citizens better acquainted with her laws would be the best possible economy. Publish the uew laws. Ord Quiz. Ed. Journal: As the time is nigh at band when our members elect will get to the business of legis lation, and as you.some time ago in yied tax-payers who felt so iuclined to submit any questions that might have a bearing upon their labors, something that would act as a spur to such as will be honestly inclined to do the square thing by their con stituents, I, as one of the tax-payers of Platte county, will 6ay as a starter, that in my humble opinion there is a great portion of the statutes that need a careful revision, particularly in the township law, for we all know that under the present form it Is little better than a nuisance. The several counties in tbe state would reap a richer harvest if the law was so amended as to allow assessors to get possession of their books on the first of February, and not have them wait a month until a great portion of the county's wealth has departed to parts unknown. The Board of Supervisors would then in all probability escapo the pain 11 duty of eummoning stockmen to appear before them to show cause why they refuse to list their fat cattle and hogs. I remember last summer of reading a letter in iho Journal written by Tax-payer, showing where a great deal of wealth was shipped out of the county without being taxed. I ulso read Supervisor's" reply, Mating that those stockmen had afterwards come before the boaid aud made ample reparation, aud now I find that it was only a few weeks ago that I saw in the proceedings ot the board that those same parties referred to bj Tax-payer were called to appear before the board and show cause why tbey did not list their stock to the assessors last March. I rauBt believe that in this case "Tax-payer" was right and "Supervisor" wrong, and I don't believe that "Supervisor" acted with a degree of honesty and good faith in office when be eent out his reply to tbe readers of the Journal, which be must have known was erroneous. Mr. Editor, I only Ven ture those remarks so that all who may read the Journal will see tht it the assessment could be made earlier in tbe year the great nibj uty of the people would be benefitted thereby. Does the law not say iu plain words that all taxable properly shall be assessed, and as Platte county is sending down as good a team ot their age and size as there is in the state I verily hope they will do their utmost in bringing about a state ot affairs that will make tbe rich mau pay a just proportion of taxeB. Besides, there are many other points our members will be expected to keep in sight viz: tho millers throughout the state are deserving of having some attention paid to them. I don't liko to see them left out in the cold.tbeiefore 1 ex cit to hear tl at the Legislature will act generously with them and see that there is a good sound and wholesome law passed that will entitle the miller to toll the tenth bushel and take sixty pounds at that, when they grind wheat, other grains in proportion. And, Mr. Editor, as I am trespas passing more than I at first intended, 1 will say in conclusion, and I think that you will bear me out iu this my last appeal, and that is that I in com mon with all tbe other down-trodden tax-payers of the county I do sincerely beg that our two members will prove themselves equal to the emergency, and labor night aud day if necessary to see that such streams as the Loop and Platte will be bridged by a 6tate apportionment; it strikes me forcibly that if the question of bridging streams of such magnitude was properly brought before the House aud urged iu the proper spirit, something could be accom plished in this direction. In the meantime wo will live in hopes and watch our two worthies, how they will handle themselves in the fight; they have a grand opportunity now afforded them to come out with marks of distinction, for. without flattery or extolling them in the least, tbe people in my neighborhood, when speaking of them will exclaim, "Didn't we elect two daisies, just the fellows we need when it comes to close quarters." One before the mast. -otttsyontttnte. In this department the people talk, and not the editor. Each writer must hold himself ready to defend his principles and his statements of facts. "Iu the mul titude of counsel there is wisdom." Ed. Journal.1 Ed. Journal : Let Van Wyck be the password given to every true man who will mount guard in the halls of legislation, because no man who serves as member, either in the house or senate, who believes in the maxim, Honor to whom nonor is due, but wi-1 vote first, last and all the time for the old hero who spent bis time, strength, money and means to save tbe Union, and then, like a true Spartan stood up almost alone iu the senate and battled for the rights of the people, and with such success that he amazed the whole nation, so that his name has become a household word in every homo throughout tbe laud. Tbe man who can 6laod up and say that Van Wyck did not do bis doty in tbe United States Senate and ought not to be returned is not worthy of comment, and is possessed of a gizzard hard enough to grind gravel for cementing an egg shell. Mr. Editor, the whole country is watching the present legislature and the member, bp he demncriU fit1 re publican, who tor paltry gain will help to slay Van Wyck in this contest will be wcii remembered, and, should he aspire again tor iffic?, "bis name will be pants," as the country will take care of those men ti ho make it a rule to pack conventions with men carrying spurious credentials. Such men are being shadowed aud will in due time be dismissed from the pay-roil as too burdeusome to the people. No doubt money will be spent freely at the capitol to compass Van Wyck's defeat. Where mouey is used to put a man out of office there is a "nigger iu the wood pile," for had Van Wyck bean a bad servant the tax-payers throughout the state would soon tell him so, but that isn't tbe wrinkle. Van Wyck wants to help better the condition of all men who honestly toil for a living for themselves and Jamilies, and that don't go down well on the bloated stomachs of money kiugs. Well, Mr. Editor, the Irish have lost one solid iriuud in the death of Gen. Logan, the brave soldier aud incorrup'ible mau. But why do I say Irish it may offcud the majesty of the Democrat didn't the rag of tho 17th show up tbe dialect of Poor Paddy to perfection? I don't mean the Hon.

Civil War, published by Sner nmu & Co., of New York is a thrill ii.g and intensely interesting work. It does for tho Navy what Grant's memoirs doea for the Army.

When the first gun of tbe Rebellion w?b fired there were but 12 vessels of war on the U. S. coast, and hut 4 o: them with 25 guns were in northern ports and available for f e:ice.

Telegraph Reporter gives tbe following state ment of Dr. C. Francoise, the well known veterinary surgeon of that city, in reference to a case of blind ness. The Doctor says : "Four years ago last spring little Willie, the four-year-old son of Mr. Peter De Witt, a relative of mine, residing at that time in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was taken with the measles. The disease struck in on bim, and tbe poor LITTLE FELLOW WAS LEFT BLIND. Distinguished physicians in Mil waukee and Chicago were consulted, and said that nothing could be done for him, and that, blinded thus early, be would continue sightless during bis entire life. While at Hot Springs Mr. De Witt bad heard the S. S". S. remedy, manufactured at Atlanta, spoken of very highly. How it hap pened I don't know, for S. S. S. is not guaranteed to cure blindness; but by some happy chance it was decided to test its efficacy in Willie's case. By the time he had taken a bottle and a half his eyes had so far , recovered that b6 cculd play out of doors. Alter taking four bottles bo vi as completely cured. His eyes seemed penectiy sound, and have coutiuued so ever since." "Here, WiUie, Willie, come here!" shouted the doctor suddeuly, to an 'active little boy dressed in knicker bockers, who was playiug in the street. "This is Willie De Witt. His father used to be a railroad con ductor, but he is out West now on business, and Willie is staying with us uutil he gets back. He goes to the East Avenue school every day, aud never has the least trouble with his eyesight. See, his eyes look as well as yours or mine." Treatise on Blood and Skin Dis eases mailed free.
