Speaker Reed addressed a large au

In the course of his speech he said, in
"It is amazing to notice the history of
the house of representatives and con
gress to see how in detail is carried out
this principle that when things are to
be done the republican party does them.
The great struggle which has been made
by the democratic house of representa
tives has been not to be economical in
the expenditures of the government, but
to cut down the sum total of the appro
priations. They have been striving in
every way to pile up a surplus, not mere
ly by taxation, but by parsimony in the
expenditure of money. So long as they
could point to the clogging of business
which results from the storing of money
in the treasury they seemed happy, but
now they are busily engaged in showing
that the surplus has disappeared. They
are unable to be contented, either with
a surplus or without one. There is no
doubt but what the expenditures of the
government are about to approach the
receipts, but any man would make a
mistake if he believed it was in any way
the result of extravagance or careless
ness with public money. There has been
an advertisement broadcast of this sur
plus and every human need and want
has been put" together to try to get
money out of tho treasury for other than
public purposes, but not one of these
schemes has been successful. All ex
penditures have been legitimate, just
and proper. We shall expend nearly
our income. We shall also reduce taxa
tion to the extent of $50,000,000 in addi
tion thereto. One great element of
expenditure is pension legislation, which
is not understood in New England, and
tho character of it is not fully apprecia
ted. With us the soldier is compara
tively content with what he has received
and "with what is promised him in the
near future. But in the west there ex
ists a different feeling. The stories
about a vast surplus have set men wild
with the idea of a service pension, which
would bring emolument to every man in
the service. We have had to meet not
merely the contention of those who are
parsimonious and not willing to do what
was fair to the soldier, but those who
wished to do such things as with the
present rovenues of tho government are
impossible without bankruptcy and ruin.
The republican party grapples with the
question and solves it with that measure
of justice which is satisfactory to the
whole people of the country. So have
we met nil such questions."
Toltarro Unixing in Nebraska.
Since coining to Nebraska we have
always had a notion that the culture of
tobacco would prove a very profitable
venture for those who owned Nebraska
soil, and understood the culture of "the
weed." Nebraska "homestead" tobacco
has been a product of the soil for years,
and the nostrile of a good many people
can testify as to its strength and pun
gency. We don't know of any test, on a
large scale, but Nebraska land owners
will keep track of tho subject, as hun
dreds of thousands of dollars may thus
be added to the farmers' bank accounts.
Tho following is from tho Schuyler Sun
of tho 4th:
Mr. John Garnas, tho gentleman who
has charge of tho tobacco being raised
on Messrs. Wells & Nicman's farm, call
ed on the Sun office Tuesday and gave
the reporter some very interesting facts
in regard to the tobacco that he has
raised here this year and the industry in
general. He has the crop raised for
Wells & Nieman all cut and shedded and
says that tho qualityand quantityis fully
equal to that raised in the tobacco dis
trict of Wisconsin. It is the variety
known as the Havana .Leal and is a
healthy, rich looking plant. Mr. Garnas
has been at tho business of tobacco cul
ture for ten years and knows just what
can be done at the business, rightly con
ducted, and he tells us that the soil here
is well adapted to the plant and he an
ticipates big results for those who raise
it here. In the tobacco districts of
other states he says tho land is worth
from $30 to $50 more an acre than where
other crops are grown and there is no
reason why tho samo change should not
take place hero. Thoy will also experi
ment with other kinds next year and
very likely put a large acreage in of the
Havana Loaf. Tho leaf can bo shipped
to tobacco factories at other places or
made up hero. We shall certainly all
watch the outcome of tho venture it
can hardly be called a venture now and
anticipate splendid results and increas
ed valuation in the price of lands here if
many go to raising the leaf.
Not in the Race.
A special dispatch from Fremont to
the Enterprise has the following:
It is stated that the friends of Rich
ards, in order to boat Dorsey, will sup
port MacColl as a dark horse candidate.
Mr. MacColl is not a candidate. The
friends of Mr. Richards feel very kindly
toward him, no doubt His hearty loy
alty to the ticket, from the moment of
its nomination, could not fail to com
mand admiration. Had ho desired to run
for congress ho could have beaten all
other candidates out of sight, but that
has never been his ambition.
Jack MacColl has but one desire to
graitfy in politics this year. That is to
see L. D. Richards elected governor by
an elegant majority. He is more anxious
for that result than he ever was about
his own nomination.
But he isn't a horse in the present
race, dark or otherwise. Kearney En
terprise. John L. Butler of Harrisburg, Pa.,
has introduced into politics a new word;
although a democrat himself, he doesn't
like Pattison, the democratic candidate
for governor of the Keystone state, and
calls him a ji-boose, which he defines as
"a professed democrat who is better and
purer than his party, in his own estima
tion, and is loaded with a set of prize
package principles which can never be
put into practice."
The following from the Schuyler
Quill is supposed to refer to the demo
cratic candidate for senator of this
district: uIt is not proper for one alli
ance man to run against another. The
alliance ticket was nominated, now let
the members stand by it. If the order
has a lot of chronic office seekers in it,
whose ambition for cheap notoriety
overcomes their brains, let them get out
and pull in with their old parlies."
P. Mullen, one of the solid farmers
of Warnerville township, threshed out
his wheat the other day, and it yielded
33 lj bushels to the acre, good plump
grain at that. Who can beat it? While
Mr. Mullen has been lucky with his
crops this year, he has been unfortunate
in another respect, having lost a valua
ble mare last week, which impaled itself
on a stick which was stuck slanting into
the ground. Norfolk Herald.

The Junction City (Kas.) Republican
of a recent date speaks of the change of
the county name from Davis to Geary,
and of the fact that some citizens had
been dissatisfied therewith. Seeing
something of the matter, a Nebraska
veteran comes to the front with the fol
lowing letter which explains itself, and
at the same time furnishes a picture
which will be of interest to some of the
"boys." By the way, A. Smith of this
county was at this 6ame battle and
knows of the facts:
Grand Island, Neb., April 8.
Commander G. A. R Post Dear Sir
and Comrade: I see by the American
Tribune that your county is about to
adopt the picture of Gen. Geary kissing
the lips of his dead boy on the battle
field of Wauhatchie as your county seal.
The emotions I experienced when I read
it I cannot explain. I was a witness to
that incident, and can testify to the
truth of it. Three of our cannoneers
were wounded, and Ed. Geary was filling
the post of a common cannoneer when
he was shot. He fell at my feet, and
after a moment he rallied, and raising
himself on his elbow, cried: "For God's
sake, boys, keep up the fire." They were
the last words he ever spoke. His father
was informed of his death, and in a few
minutes I saw him riding up to our gun
with but one staff officer. As he ap
proached I pointed to where Ed. laid.
He dismounted, dropped on his knees,
kissed him, mounted again and rode on.
The battle of Wauhatchie was fought at
midnight, and only lasted about one and
a halt hours, but during that time onr
losses in men were greater than any one
battle we were ever engaged in. 1 will
close by saying that if there are any
members of your post that belonged to
the White Star division of tho 20th
corps, just give them a shake for me.

I. L. Albert.
The republican and people's independ
ent candidate for county attorney was
born in Clearfield county, Pennsylvania,
Dec. 28, 1856.
His father being engaged in the lum
ber business, this was also the occupa
tion of young Albert until he was nine
teen years old, at which time he came
west, attending the Western college at
Toledo, la., of which his uncle, E. B.
Kephart, was president, and of which he
is a graduate.
Under the direction of Hon. F. C.
Hormel, a prominent attorney of Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, he studied law, and was
admitted to practice in Plymouth coun
ty. He practiced in Iowa courts till
1886, when he came to Albion, Neb.,
where he had an extensive practice until
last fall, when health failed him, and he
spent the winter months on the Pacific
coast Early last spring he returned to
Nebraska, and with J. D. Stires, esq.,
opened a law office in this city.
By his acquaintances here Mr. Albert
is regarded as a young man of excep
tionally good ability, a bright lawyer,
and one who will be a credit to himself
and an honor to the political parties
which have selected him as their candi
date for the important office of county
The Pierce Tragedy.
From a citizen of Pierce who was in
the city today, The News learned fur
ther particulars of the shooting of the
Auten boy near that place Sunday night.
It seems that young Auten and another
lad about the same age (17 years) had
been routed by Pointer from his melon
patch, and while the latter was captured
the Auten boy jumped on his horse and
started to escape. He went but a short
distance, however, and then turned back
to see what had become of his compan
ion, who says that as Auten rode up
Pointer said he would "fix him," and
loaded his shotgun and went out to
meet him. Leveling the gun at the lad,
Pointer fired both barrels into his body,
beiug so close to him that every shot in
both loads, some 200 in all, the doctors
say, took effect. The boy was taken
home, and though every effort was made
to save his life, he died this morning.
Pointer was arrested at the time for
shooting with intent to kill, and was
placed under $500 bonds to appear.
After the death of young Auten this
morning he was rearrested and will now
have to answer a more serious charge.
Norfolk News Sept 3.
The Irishman for ready wit, always,
and a way out of trouble. Tap" Thom
as was a stern disciplinarian, and once
upon a time, after many complaints had
been lodged with him against his boys
for foraging, he issued very strict or
ders, menacing with death any who
should transgress. The brigade in ques
tion wore for its badge an acorn, in silver
or gold, and the men were very fond of
it as a sign. The old general didn't
succeed in finding any proofs until one
day he came full upon an Irishman, who
had killed a hog and was skinning the
animal with his sword-bayonet "Ah,"
cried the general, "you rascal! at last I
have caught one of you in the act
There is no mistake about it this time,
and I will make an example of you, sir."
"Bedad, gineral, honey!" said the man,
straightening himself up and coming to
the salute, it's not shootin' me that you
ought to be at, but rewardin' me."
"What do you mean, sir?" exclaimed
Gen. Thomas. "Why, your honor," the
soldier replied, "this bad baste here had
just been disicratin' the regimental
badge, and so I was forced to dispatch
him. It's atin' the acorns I found him
at." The general laughed and the sol
dier was not shot.
A Revolver's Victin.
What proved to be very near a tragedy
from the careless handling of a revolver
occurred at the farm of C. F. Haase
north of this city this morning. Wm.,
the young son of Mr. Haase, and a farm
hand were at work in a field together
when the latter pulled out a revolver
and was showing it to him. While the
"showing" process was going on the
weapon was accidentally discharged, the
bullet striking young Haase in the right
side, passing either through or around
the body and lodging just beneath the
skin near the backbone. Though the
wound is a painful one, the doctor does
not think it dangerous and the young
man will doubtless speedily recover.
The Newport, Ky., branch of the Ad
dyston Pipe and Steel Works will this
week begin turning out the largest pipe
ever attempted in this country, being
five feet in diameter almost double the
largest size heretofore made. Each pipe
will be twelve feet four inches long.
The thickness will be one and one
eighth inches. The weight of each sec
tion will be six tons. The ladle used in
making the cast will hold nine tons of
molten metal. The pipe goes to Mil
waukee to be used in obtaining a water
supply from the lake. Eight hundred
lengths are to be made, or 4,800 tons.
A number of the Jefferson county
farmers have maufactured horse power
machines with which to cut their corn.
It is a wonderful piece of labor saving
machinery and does good work. Two
men and a boy can cut and shock from
eight to ten acres of corn a day, its
swath being two rows. G. Ducket has a
machine which cats four rows and he
alleges that he can cut and shock in
good shape from fifteen to twenty acres
of corn in a day. This machine is a
simple one, being made in the shape of
sled, narrow enough to pass between two
rows of corn. Knives are attached on
either side, back of which are substan
tial platforms for the men to stand on
who take care of the corn. Thus says
an exchange. This is the same machine
in use in this section of the state, and
manufactured by a Kansas City house.
Last Friday morning while all the
farmers were busily engaged putting up
hay a fire was discovered by Charles
Jenkins in the barn of Wm. Maurer, liv
ing near Kalamazoo and soon the neigh
bors were coming from all directions to
help extinguish the flames, but all
efforts proved of no avail, for the flames
by this time were leaping high into the
air and nothing could be saved but a
harvester. Tho balance of the contents,
consisting of two horses, two sets of new
harness and all small farming utensils
and other property in the barn, together
with the barn soon went to ashes, which
was a total loss there being no insurance
on the property. Mr. Maurer having
the true western grit was soon on the
road to Madison to get lumber to build
a new barn. Madison Reporter.
About forty people left Albion, St.

Three months ago G. C. Stevens was
a poor drummer. He had accumulated
$409, which he was pursuaded to invest
in Florida phosphate lands. The other
day he sold a fraction of his purchase for
$50,000, at which rate the balance of his
holdings is worth $700,000. He gave out
a contract for a marble palace in the
fashionable part of the city.

From the Fullerton Journal it would
seem that some alliance people are com
plaining that the republicans have nom
inated their candidate, Henry Stevens,

for alliance men to think that the re

when they see it They are not, howev
er, without discrimination.
Oxford, a town of 1,500 sixteen miles
west of Iowa City, was almost entirely
destroyed by fire Tuesday night of last

Little is left of the place except the res
idences on the outskirts, and the loss is
estimated at $100,000.

Children Cry for
From onr regular correspondent
The president has been giving a great
deal of attention to the condition of the
congressional calendar, and he has be
come convinced that it will be impossi
ble to dispose of the measures of nation
al importance, not to mention those im
portant to particular sections of the
country in the time between the first
Monday in December and the 4th of
March, 1891. At the same time, it is be
lieved that he would prefer that congress
should adopt the resolution offered by
Senator Edmunds providing for a recess
from September 19 to November 10, in
stead of his having to call an extra ses
sion. Senator Edmunds says he offered the
resolution without conferring with his
party colleagues, and because he thinks
the additional time will thereby be gain
ed is absolutely necessary to dispose of
the immense mass of business all more
or lees important with which the calen
dar of the senate is loaded down. Mr.
Edmunds thinks, as does every one else
at all familiar with the subject, that un
less those three weeks before the regu
lar meeting in December are utilized in
this manner many important measures
cannot be acted upon.
Another thing which will probably
have a restraining effect upon the fili
bustering proclivities of the democrats
is that among the measures which the
Edmunds resolution or a similar one
will give an opportunity of becoming
laws, which otherwise they cannot pos
sibly have, are a number that the labor
organizations and the farmers' alliance
are numerously clamoring for; and for
the democrats to antagonize those or
ganizations so openly they are always
ready to do so secretly would mean
that the republicans would certainly
elect two-thirds, if no more, of the next
house of representatives.
It begins to look now as though the
reciprocity amendment of the tariff bill
would provide for including other coun
tries than those of South and Central
America. Senator Aldrich, who, in the
absence of Senator Morrill, is in charge
of the tariff bill, has introduced an
amendment to include coffee, tea and
hides in the amendment giving the pres
ident anthority to place a duty on such
articles coming from countries which
refuse to reciprocate by allowing our
goods free entry. Of course the ques
tion remains as yet an open one, and
will bo continue until the voting upon
the amendments shall begin.
The house has passed the bill amend
ing the eight hour law, which was asked
for by the labor organizations.
