In reply to a question by Senator
Pugh as to what remedy he would sug
gaest for the present emergency, Hill
replied: "Pass a rule making it possible
for the senate to execute its purposes;
with the present rules it is impossible to
proceed on any course of action."
That was pretty sparring between
Senators Gorman and Hill last week, but
Allison told them that if they had not
threatened the revising and nullifying of
the McKinley law, its normal action
would have yielded abundant revenue
for the current expenses of the govern
ment. Regulate telephone charges? Well,
in the name of conscience, why net? Is
there any corporation that is more ex-

Scott's Body Found.
On New Year's eve Barrett Scott, the
ex-treasurer of Holt county, was spirited
away from his wife and niece, and hired
man, since which time various rumors
have been set afloat to account for the
disappearance, varying from abduction
by friends to abduction, and murder by
All this timo search has been made

A coroner's jury convened on Sunday
rendered their verdict to the effect that
they believed, from the evidence pro
duced, that on the 31st day of Decem

with a rope by the neck until he was
dead, in the county of Holt and state of
Nebraska, and that George D. Mullihan,
Moses Elliott, Mert Boy and other citi
zens of Holt county, to the jurors un
known, were guilty of the killing. They
believe that the body was carried to the
bridge and then thrown into the river.
After the inquest, the body was con
veyed to O'Neill, where it arrived Sun
day afternoon at 3. His mittened hands
are tied tightly behind his back; the
noose of half-inch rope still hanging
around the neck, told how the work was
done. The bullet hole is apparent in
the right ear, and a crimson furrow
shows where it grazed the cheek. His
nose had been broken and twisted to
one side. There is a large contusion
just above the right eye, and another on
the left temple. There is the mark of a
knife in the left boot. The body was
well preserved, though the skin was
It is believed that Scott was hung at
the place where Schmidt was turned
loose, and very soon after that time. His
watch, found on the body, had stopped
at just one minute after midnight. This
would indicate that the vigilantes lost
no time after they were left alone with
their victim. The last words he is known
to have spoken were to his captors to
kill him quick, and it seems they took
him at his word.
The marks on the body are supposed
to confirm the belief that he wa3 tortured
in the hope that he could be forced to
disgorge some of the Holt county money.

tomorrow (Thursday;, and be attended

Th W it) ne Normal.
Representative Becher has sent us a
ropy of a bill introduced to "locate,

time and referred to the committee on
universities and normal schools. It is

state the college building now occupied
for college pnrposes,and the si-acre tract
of land on which it is located, and cause
to be conveyed the dormitory and nine
lots, etc., for $12,500. The bill goes on
to appropriate this sum and $8,000 for
salaries of teachers and janitor, $500 for
fuel and lights and $250 for stationery,
etc. If the scheme works through tho
legislative mill all right, the state is to
take possession Sept. 1. 1895.

The New York Central railroad com
pany has decided to withhold from
clergymen the customary half-fare per

the privilege by loaning their permits to

black sheep be made known.
The number of persons killed by the
explosion of giant powder at Butte,
Montana, Tuesday night of last week,
was sixty. A number of the bodies were
so mangled that they were beyond all
recognition. It is believed that over
100 were killed. The fire originated in
the Royal Milling company's warehouse
and spread to the Kenyon & Connell
ramnnnv's buildincr. Nobody seems to
know where the powder was stored that
wrought the destruction. The streets
near by were literally covered with
parts of human beings and with the
dead and injured. The houses in the
vicinity were as thoroughly wrecked as
if a cyclone had passed throngh them.
One of the rescuing corps gathered
twenty-seven dead bodies in one pile.
Casimir-Perier has resigned the pres

The New York World, democratic
through and throngh, gives its deliberate
opinion that the income tax has come to
stay: that it especially commends itself
to the popular sense of right. It pro
ceeds to tell in what particulars tho ap
plication of the principle will be
changed, viz: so that incomes below
$5,000 shall be untaxed, and incomes
between that and $10,000 taxed at a
nominal rate, while above that figure the
rate will increase with the amount of
the income, the object being to lay tho
burdens of government upon wealth, in
stead of on industry; superfluity, in
stead of necessity.
Among bills introduced in the legisla
ture are the following: To prohibit the
issue of free transportation under pen
alty; to provide for a soldiers' relief com
mission; to require railroads to issue
through bills of lading and build trans
fer switches; to allow county boards to
issue bonds to secure grain and seed for
farmers; to exterminate Russian thistles;
to incorporate plate-glass insurance com
panies; to regulate charges for selling
livestock; to provide a public employ
ment office; to amend the constitution
by providing for nine Judges; to admit
attorneys only by the Supreme Court.
Congressman Sibley's alliterative
phrase characterising President Cleve
land has traveled around the world
already, but the following paragraph
gees slower: He said that by the stand
ards of the fathers he believed he was a
democrat; he loved Jefferson and Jack
son; but if he was to be carried in a con
veyance labeled "Democracy," guided by
an obstinate driver, over an unknown
road, with precipices and chasms yawn
ing on all sides he was going to jump
out, and he was not particular as to

The commissioners of Pieice county at
a recent meeting directed the clerk to do
away with the old system of listing land
in 40-acre descriptions and town lots in
separate description where the owner
thereof owns a section, half-section, half
quarter-section, block, etc., and many
ca.i be included in one description, thus
saving a great deal of money to tax
payers. It is estimated that Pierce
county tax-payers, will, by this action of
their commissioners, save about $700. A
good thing for all Nebraska counties
At Crawford, Nebraska, Thursday, A.
V. Harris, an attorney of Whitney, was
shot dead on the main street of the town,
Luke Lyons, a farmer, had his irrm shat

shoulder. The deceased was a married
man, about 45 years of age, and has a
wife and several children. The alterca

Harris is in doubt, several shots having

Tho amount estimated as needed for
defraying Platte county's expenses the
coming year is $49,750, little short of
$50,000. Of course the supervisors are
not obligated to appropriate so much as
that, only limited ndt to expend more.
The largest item is county bridge fund,
99,000; $7,500 for expenses of the district
court; county road fund $7,000; officers'
salaries $7,000; printing, etc., $1,500.

We notice that in some counties, the
supervisors have been cutting down the
salaries of county officials. That can
hardly be looked for here, whether by
tho proffer of the officials, or without
their consent. We believe the people of

pay the regular salaries of the officials,
but they would like to see the taxes
lowered some way. Who is the man to

When the result of the elections of
Nov. 6 was first made known, the or
gans of free trade and foreign interests
that are published in this country were
so completely staggered by the death
blow given to the cause they espouse
that it took them a good many days be
fore they could invent some" excuse for
the defeat. The hidebound free trade
editors cling to their idol with at mqch
vigor as the paralytic stroke from
which they are suffering a recovery will
permit. It took the New York Herald
two weeks to collect its scatterbraiua,
and here is the result:
"The more the elections are studied
the more apparent it becomes that the
overwhelming blow was directed by
voters not against Mr. Cleveland, not
against his aggressive tariff reform pol
icy, but against the elements of his par
ty which deserted the cause he up
This is one of the most laughable
jokes of the season, especially when we
find added in the same article that
"but for Mr. Cleveland's adherence to
thi cause his party would have fared
much worse- than it did." There was
one issue, and only ono issue, as The
Herald very well knows, before the
American people in tho last campaign,
and that issue was protection as against
free trade. Every honest Democratic pa
per acknowledged this np to Nov. 6.
The overwhelming vote of the people
was rendered against "tariff reform" or
free trade collegiate theories and such a
policy as the anti-American New York
Herald advocates. The people voted for
an American policy; the people voted
against free trade; the people voted for
American silks and against French silks;
the people voted for protection for them
selves, not for the French; for Ameri
can manufacturers, not French manu
facturers; for American labor, not for
French labor; for American steamers,
not for French transatlantic steamship
The Herald anticipates the defeat of
the Democratic party for another quar
ter of a ceuutry at least, and probably
until the millennium, because it says,
"It must remain in a minority nntil
the Democracy becomes bold, coherent
and united." If we wait until "the De

"becomes bold, coherent," in its edito

Why Freight Is Cheaper,-
In 1880 the. freight on a barrel of
flour from St. Lonis to New York by
rail was 84 cents. In 1893 it was only
57 cents, a reduction of 27 cents per
barrel within 13 years as tho result of
protection to our coal, iron and steel in
dustries. Ob, What a Dlfferea.cc!
During the protection administration
of President Harrison the national debt
was decreased by $244, 8 16, 890. During
21 months of the free trade administra
tion of President Cleveland the national
debt has been increased $100,000,000.
Stilt They Come.
The imports of dutiable goods during
October were worth $6,500,000 more
than in October, 1893. This was the
second u onth under the new tariff.
A High Price to Pay.
The additiou of $100,000,000 to the
national debt within ten months is a
fair sample of a free trade "object les
son." It is "a condition" that confronts
the people, not "a theory." This addi
tion of debt during ten nioitbs of a free
trade administration is atr tho rate of
$10,000,000 a month. It has cost the
people $333,333 during each and overy
one of the 300 days in these ten months
to pay for the privilege of threatening
protection; it has cost $13,900 every
hour of the ten months; it has cost over
$230 every minute; it has cost the coun
try almost $4 during every second of
the ten mouths. This is only tho cost to
the people as represented by tho actual
increase in the national debt in the sum
of almost $4 during every second of the
ten months, over $230 during every
minute; $13, 900 every hour and $333,
333 every day of that time. The cost of
a course of lectures delivered by a Buf
falo lawyer and a West Virginia college
professor is certainly considerably more
than it is worth and very much more
than the preseut generation of people
will ever pay again.
The Price of Cotton.
Is the present low price of cotton due to a
diminished demand for the staple in the Unit
ed States resulting from the threatened and
effected tariff reduction??
W. J. Waxbauqh.
The price of cotton is regulated pri
marily by the question of supply and
demand. Added to unusually laige cot
ton crops in the United Btates more cot
ton has been grown ill other countries
withiu recent years. At the same time
there has been general trade depression
throughout the world, all of which facts
tend to depress the value of the raw
staple. In this country there undoubt
edly has been a diminished demand for
cotton goods, due to the threatened and
effected tariff reductions, because the
threat of the change in the tariff caused
such a panic and such general busiuass
stagnation that there was little or no
demand for manufactured good. Fac
tories were compelled to close, tens of
thousands of people were thrown out of
employment, and of course, when earn
ing no money, these people were not buy
ing any cotton or other goods that they
could possibly do without.

company assembled at their residence in
honor of the event. After all the guests
had arrived, Mrs. Carrie Guiberson arose
and announced that she had been re
quested to act as master of ceremonies,
and that the first thing in order would
be the reading of an original paper by
Miss Effie Danforth. That lady re
sponded and read a well prepared essay
on "To Wed or Not to Wed, that is the
Question." She was followed by Miss
Emma Miller, late principal of govern
ment Indian schools in Oklahoma, who
read an original poem suitable to the
occasion a production of more than
ordinary merit. Next came Miss Lou
Seymour, who recited "John Anderson
My Joe, John." Then Capt. S. C.
Brooks read a poem selected for the oc
casion which was well received by the
v listeners. Rev. A. In wood, with a few
appropriate remarks now presented Mr.
and Mrs. Calloway some silverware, as a
flight token of the high esteem in which
the friends who were present hold that
worthy couple. Mr. Calloway responded
by thanking all the friends present for
their attendance and for the good will
manifested. Next came vocal music,
followed by refreshments. At a season
able hour the company dispersed, all
feeling that they had had a good time.

Councilman J. P. Steinman has re
moved to Columbus to reside. His re
moval left the Third ward without a
councilman, and to fill the vacancy,
Mayor McLeod appointed G. H. Dnnbam I
as his successor.
The Schuyler opera house has changed
hands, Manager Bohman selling it to
one Albert Rickly, of Bushville, this
state. The consideration was 8,000 and
in payment of the same Mr. Bohman
takes 500 acres of land near Columbus.
The management, however, does not
change hands, as Mr. Rickly will not
reside here and he retains Mr. Bohman
as manager of the house.
