Tnn election of Galusha A. Grow, the
republican nominee, for congressman-at-large
from the state of Pennsylvania, by
a majority of 187,000, is opening the eyes
of many politicians in this country, to
the fact that a number of electors who
helped place the present administration
in power, have changed their minds most
decidedly, and purpose making no con
cealment of that fact.
McKixlev could not have said more
in a column and a half than he said in
these twenty-one words of his spoech
before the Republican clubs of Ohio
Tuesday: "The people are tired of this
tariff-tinkering, bond-issuing, debt-increasing,
paralyzing, wage-reducing, Queen-restoring
administration.' No administration
was ever better described in fewer words.
The county commissioners are making
a move in the right direction when they
resolve to require of the county treasurer
a monthly statement showing the precise
amounts of county money held by the
different banks that have been designat
ed as county depositories. The publica
tion of this statement would be a further
check upon the power of the treasurer
to favor one bank more than another,
and would at the same time take the
people into the confidence of the county
bookkeeping. There is no call for
secrecy with the safekeeping of public
funds. Omaha Bee.
The following extract from a recent
"letter from Oregon will be of interest to
wool growers: "The democratic party is
raising sheol with the whole country.
One-half the sheep men in the west are
. bankrupt and are only hanging on to see
"if the new tariff bill in its present form
. becomes a law, in which event the flocks
will be fattened and sold to the butchers.
With low price for mutton and no price
for wool the sheep men cannot payex
penses. We live twenty miles from The
Dalles, Oregon, which is the wool em
porium of the north coast, and I am told
by a reliable party there are hundreds of
tons of wool stored there which cannot
": lie sold at any price. Nearly every branch
of business is flat. Some are praying for
better prices, but I think the time and
place to pray with best effect is at the
. ballot box. We hope to see McKinley
tbe next president. God speed the day!"
Deauadx Money Dae.
At the annual encampttnent of the G.
A. R held in Lincoln on Wednesday. D.
A. Scoville, commandant of the state
soldiers' home at this place, reported
that the last legislative appropriation for
the support of the soldiers' home was
$24,000 less than the appropriation of
1891, for a period of two years each, and
$16,000 less than the actual expenses for
the two years last preceding. The re
port further states: "It is generally be
lieved that the home receives aid to an
amount equal to $100 per capita annually
from the general government, and while
this is true in most states maintaining
soldiers1 homes, it is not true in Ne
braska." By law the governor is made the
proper officer to receive money from the
United States. The committee to whom
this report was referred recommended
that steps be taken to secure money that
may be due. The home now contains
136 men, twenty-one women, making a
total of 157.
A very pleasing incident which occur
red during the meeting, is related by
Col. Geo. P. Dean. Six old army nurses
made their appearance among the boys
and were accorded a reception such as
almost raised the roof of the building.
The ladies were aged and infirm, with
hair as white as snow. One of them, de
crepit with age and physical infirmities,
had a quilt that she had made of red,
white and blue colored cloth, to be do
nated to the soldiers' home at this place.
It was mentioned that the pittance of
ten cents paid to the old lady would
recompense her for working the name of
the doner into the covering. In a trice
$28 were raised and she will have 280
names to inscribe with her needle if she
is not mustered out before it is complet
ed. Grand Island Times.
According to the Chicago Tribune the
present valuation of church property in
the United States is $475,000,000. This
property is exempt from taxation. If it
were taxed, and if we suppose the aver
age tax rate to be two per cent, and we
believe it to be higher than that, it would
produce $9,500,000. Nine millions of
dollars! Only thiuk of it! And this is
the sum of money which in this country
that boasts of a separation of church
and state, the people are annually forced
by the state to contribute to the sup
port of the church. For, if this property
were taxed, it is easy to be seen that the
people would have to pay that much
less. Church property should be taxed.
To a man in his ungenerate state, it
would look as though the churches and
church people were not living up to the
doctrines of the sermon on the mount
to any particular extent. With all those
475 millions before him, he would natu
rally conclude that no matter about
their treasures in heaven they were cer
tainly laying up treasures on earth in a
very thrifty and ungodly manner. How
would it do if these people should just
now proceed to put in practice the scrip
tural injunction of selling all they have
and giving to the poor? We would not
ask them to 6ell all, but if they would
only dispose of a few of their surplus
millions in that manner, it would do very
well just for the present. Preaching and
practice don't always go together. Sil

Rev. Butler of Omaha is credited
with saying recently that "a private
school is as treacherous to American in
stitutions as a private mint." While we
do believe that the public free school,
properly conducted, is one of the most
potent factors in the preservation of our
liberties, it must not for a moment be
allowed that machinery of any kind,
however complicated and precious, can
take the place of the motive power,
whose instrument it is. Even in matters
of learning it is not so much a question
of Where? but What? As to one phase
of Rev. Butler's callow sentence the
Omaha World Herald says:
"In your efforts to escape from imag
inary tyranny, Mr. Butler, you are mak
ing a tyrant out of republican institu
tions. We are free to do as we think
best here, reverend sir. We may study
where we please and what we "please,
think what we please, worship as we
please, by the grace of God and the
American constitution. And over us
shall be no czar. You may talk of
American liberties, Mr. Butler, but
American liberty is not assured until we
are free to refuse to accept the tenders
offered us by the state of a particular
and regulated education. We must
have the right of election. And you can
do only harm to those you would fain
ground in patriotism, if you insist upon
specific courses of action. It is human
nature to revolt against coercion. And
a reaction will as certainly follow ex
treme views as fever follows chill. It is
a law of nature that it should do so."
"Great things come out of Kansas," is
a common-place saying, and certainly the
climate or something down there seems
prolific in expedients for bettering the
world. At a meeting of the farmers'
alliance in Topeka Friday the following
resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That the time has now
arrived in the history of the republic
when we need a new, national co-operative
system of industry that shall furnish
remunerative employment to every able
"Senatob Oblakdo Tekft, of Cass
county, is mentioned as a possible candi
date for the governorship this fall. Sen
ator Teff t is one of the clean and brainy
men of the republican party in Nebraska,
and withal as full of sense as an egg is
of meat He is a real fanner who culti
vates the soil and monkeys with politics
betimes. If the wheel of fortune should
turn him out as a candidate he would be
one that all good men could support with
enthusiasm. He would be a sort of a
new deal in state politics and this would
be welcomed by a good many members
of the grand old party."
The above from the Fremont Tribune
finds an echo here. Orlando Tefft is one
among a thousand of the public men
whose motive of action is found in a
strong desire to do right by his fellow
men; aside from this, he is a man of ex
cellent judgment, and has had consider
able experience as a legislator. We
could vote for Mr. Tefft for governor
College boys will be boys. Very
true; but that is no reason they should
grow up criminals, says the Inter Ocean.
Yery true. Many an American lad has
been subjected to indignities at West
Point, for instance, whose tormentors
should have been made to suffer for their
misdeeds, and it has been a shame all
along that our people have tolerated
such a state of affairs. There is nothing
manly, nothing courageous or gentle
manly about hazing, and the American
people should put their foot down upon
it so hard that hereafter the rowdy
ruffians who torment younger students
shall pay very dearly for their supposed

Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is tho Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
"Castoria Is on excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osgood,
Castori Is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is cot
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria. in
tead of the Tariousqoack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agenta down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graTes."
