Repubmcanh respectfully and confi
dently ask for President McKinley's
administration tho support ot tho conn
try, because he has been right in the
conduct of the government, during one
ui wu uiimv nuiui uiuk nun iijiiik uiiini
of its entire history. He has been '
patient, wiso, strong, decisive, able, far
seeing and patriotic. Send to Washing
ton congressmen and senators of like
mind. Vote for Norris, nnd vote for the
nominees of tho republicans who will
elect a United States senator to tako tho
place of Allen, who would overthrow the
McKinley administration if he could.
We are not to have populist rule in Ne
braska any longer, and why continuo
Allen after the current term closes?
The nomination of Hollenbeck for
judge will not give the fusionists much
hope. They have seen him defeated
twice for the position in receut years and
they will be unable to discover any new
reason tor believing ho can be olectod
now. The truth is ho secured the nomi
nation a year sooner than be expected.
He was playing for a place on the ticket
next year, when both four-year terms
are to be filled. He was for Alberts, a
populist this time, believing if the candi
date succeeded, he would be renomi
nated next year, then he (Hollenbeck)
would work for a place on the ticket
with him, making one democrat and one
populist, and satisfactory fusion. Geo.
L. Loomis has also shown symptoms of
an ambition for the job. He is playing
for the state senatorship now ns a step
stepping stone to the judgeship. Ob
viously if his ambition is to bn fulfilled
it will be necessary to see that Hollen
beck is elected this fall just as ho has
been twice before. That would leave
Loomis a pretty clear field a year hence.
A Seotklag Speech.
Ed. Journal: One night last week a
popocrat meeting was held in Niobrara,
Nebraska, in which Auditor Cornell and
W. R. Price were advertised to speak.
Col. Custer of Gov. Holcomb's staff, who
also keeps a hotel up there, took his
guests out and proposed to show them
the town. While doing so he got too
much ot a load himself. The meeting
was to be opened up and the Colonel
dressed himself up in his uniform, sword
and all and was considerable put out
when he was asked to be a part of the
audience but a fit having got hold of
him, he is stated to have gono upon the
stage sgainet the wishes of all and seated
himself behind the principal speaker.
He soon went to sleep and set the audi
ence to giggling between hiccough and
snores, while Cornell waded through his
piece not a little amazed. Price waa one
ot the audience and when he was called
for he arose and said, that he had but
little to say but he had beard Cornell
make many speeches during the cam
paign but that this was tho first time he
had ever known him to have been so
soothing in his talk as to put the chair
man to sleep. This took the wind out of
the sails ot even the pops.
Yours truly, K. N.
State Tbkasurer Meserve's juggling
with figures is being. shown up in a
manner that is riocredlt to him, and will
result in losing him many votes where
the trath is known. "I," says the treas
urer, "have reduced the state debt from
November 30. 1806, to August 1, 1896,
$738,486.99." Now the present state
treasurer took charge ot the office,-not
on the 30th of November, 1896, as bis
statement would imply, but January 7,
1697, says the State Journal. Why does
he date his achievements as the state
debt rsdaced, from November 90, 1896,
thirty-eight daya before he took charge
ot the offtoe? Why does he straddle
himself over these thirty-eight days and
claim them as a part ot his official
period? Ia these thirty-sight; days
aader a call for interest bearing stats
warrants Hartley paid 30215.84. That
is, he, Bartley made the call in Decem
ber and turned over to Meserrs of the
general fund the money na seamy to
meet the warrants as they were present
ed dariag the first part of Janaary.
These warrants were being paid uader
the Hartley call when Meserve went into
the ottee. The call for these warrants
was Hartley set. The taraiag over of
the aaoaey to asset the cell was Bartley 's
act. How then eaa Meserve okim credit

My Dear Rrotiier: I am great ly
pl eased to noto that the Hon.V. F.
Norris has been nominated for congress
by his friends in tho 3rd congressional
district u nomination so timely and
well deserved, that it at once commends
itself nnd will meet with the most earn
est approval by the voters of that dis
trict, and I will trust that they will
send Judge Norris to Washington this
fall by the largest majority of the whitest
votes, ever tendered a nominee from the
gallaut "Old Third."
Tho money question must bido its
time for final adjudication, it will be
settled later and settled right, but great
er questions are pressing their claims
for recognition and must take preced
ence because of their supremacy. I
doubt the loyalty of men or party that
choose to make the money question a
hobby horse, upon which they wish to
ride into political office, when such po
tential problems as that of human rights,
of an increased liberty to those isles of
the sen, of the maintenance of the honor
or "Old Glory" at Manila, and the Ne
braska boys are asking for our approval
and support. Money is a value but
blood is above the price of rubies and
that speech of blood has a message for
us today. It reddened Santiago's Hills
and wet in sacrifical love tho block house
of San Juan, it crimsoned Manila's Ray
nnd made holy the trenches at El Caney
nnd the interpretation of that speech
that God has transferred the steward
ship ot certain lands and colonies of
Spain ns an inheritance to America to
protect against all comers, until these
oppressed people shall bo able to devise
and establish a government of their own
and until then old glory is their knight
and defender, to do less than this is
treasonable, and belittles the spirit of
our Christian civilization and misreads
that message of liberty's prophets,
spoken by Dewey, Hobson and Joe
It ia sinful to make a mistake in the
selection of our congressman this fall.
The times are anspicous, it is an epoch
making period, history was never more
rapidly written, nor with a braver hand.
Give us statesmen at Washington,
men above the trades of political trick
erysuch a man as W. F. Norris; by all
means send him to Washington. He is
the peer of any of Nebraska's brilliant
men whose presence has yet graced the
Capitol City, it natural endowment,
strength of character, purity of motive,
disciplino nnd education' count for any
thing ns elements of fitness in a congres
sional candidate, Judge Norris ia with
out an opponent.
Born in a state which gave ns James
G. Blaine, educated at West Point,
trained in his country's service, schooled
with the pioneers of Nebraska in the
school of privation and hardships, he
comes by birth, endowment and fitness
to this position ot honor well qualified
a clean record back ot him and a glori
ous future ahead Mr. Norris "On to

So that, it is little wonder that the
delegates of his party, ia coaveation at
Geaea, asleeted him to auks the raee
agaiast Editor Taaaer at Failertoa.
We do aoi believe there weald be a
particle of doubt of the election of Nils
Olson, if he snd Tanner could make the
canvass together over the district, sad
republicans would give a pretty penny
if they could induce Mr. Taaaer to
make the race. Jim woald f nd himself
away in the rear, becaase the great body
of the people would be with his oppon
ent. Mr. Olson's friends are hopeful of bis
election, notwithstanding 'the fact that
. the three political parties, so-called, are
supposed to be solid in support of Tan-
Olson is of the number of plain, hon
est common people, while Tanner is of
the most uncommon kind. Tanner
understands the newspaper bnsineoa,
doubtless, but Olson knows what the
plain people on the farms and in the
shops and stores want in the way of
state, county and township legislation,
and has bad an opportunity of serving
the public in official station, and pleas
ing them with the manner of hi9 service.
A vote for Olson is h vote to sustain

Mlpftosri Soap l!muv.
In order that there may be no doubt
that the Missouri soap grease is being
used in the state institutions of Nebras
ka, attention is called to the following
figures showing tho amount of bntter
ine known to have been purchased for
the institutions since July 1, 1897:
Hasting Asylum ,
Feelili Mindeil Institnte..
Institute for HI i ml
lltime for Friend lean
Krarnejr Industrial Homo,

Resides these amounts, which are all
verified from sworn vouchers on file in
the vault at tho stato nnd i tor's office,
there is evidenco that n largo amount ot
bntterine was bought under cover, or
that it is included in tho bills for grocer
ies from wholesale houses. Only two
of the vouchers on filo show that the
greaso purchased wns "light colored,"
the natural inference being that all the
other consignments were colored to imi
tate butter. As tho state law expressly
prohibits tho J manufacture or salo of
bntterine colored,ito imitate the real
article, it seems that the stato honso re
formers have committed n double of
fense. Tho statute provides for n fine
of not less than $10 nor more than $20
for each offense. There are forty-oue
vouchers on filo for the purchase of
colored butterine, so that the minimum
amount of the fines duo from the re
formers would be $410, which would bo
a nice addition to the school fund.
During tho time the officials were feed
ing the wards of the stato on illegal imi
tation butter.'sixty-seven new creamer

RAILROADS GET A RESPITE.
Cklcag-o Great Western Will Refrain From
Applying- Short Line Rates.
Chicago, Oct. 25. Another respite
has been granted the Missouri river
lines in regard to rates to Montana and
Northern Pucific coast points. The
Chicago Great Western will refrain
for the present from applying short
line rates from lower Missouri river
points to Montana, eastern Washington
nnd North Pacific coast poiuts. An op
portunity win. be afforded the transcon
tinental lines of considering all the
questions involved before anything
further is done in the matter. Since
the proposition to apply short line rates
by the route named was made many
complications have presented them
selves. Bates from Duluth and the
Superiors, s well as from tho Missouri
river gateways, have been threatened
with disturbance. The Great Northern,
which is as directly involved as the
Chicago Great Western, has required
the latter to refrain from taking further
action in the matter at present, and
that road has complied. Of course this
does not formally dispose of the mat
ters in dispute, but the roads interested
feel that a great point has been gained
when they have Avoided the immediate
application of the rate. It is believed
that when full opportunity is given of

will be found of reaching a satisfactory

Loxdox, Oct. 24. The Anglo-French
crisis continues acute and preparations
for possible conflict are being rushed on
both sides of the channel with feverish
haste. Few sane people, however, be
lieve that France will profike a conflict
for aa insignificant and' fever ridden
village on the Nile that is of little actnal
importance to her.
The present is very far from the mo
saent in which France could wisely haz
ard war with Fngland or with an
other country. The Dreyfus case and
its consequences weaken the .republic
at home, partially tie its hands abroad
and threaten even its stability.
Russia would almost certainly keep
aloof, Germany would draw closer to
England and the present approachment
between the two countries has dis
turbed Gallic equanimity.
The French government is seeking
other ends than war in its pretensions
inFashoda. The real aim of French
policy is not the possession of Fashoda
but the exchange of it, so to say, for
compensations elsewhere in Africa. If
she was only reasonably confident of
securing these compensations in subse

London, Oct. 25. The British gov

the most important feature of which
will be a dispatch dated Oct. 12, from
the marquis of Salisbury to the British
ambassador at Paris, Sir Edmond Mon
son, reporting the previous interview
with Baron de Courcel, in which the
latter wished to ascertain what solution
of the question was possible. In this
dispatch the marquis of Salisbury says:
"I generally insisted that the Nile
valley had belonged and still belonged
to Egypt, and that whatever diminu
tion that title had suffered by the mah
di's conquest had been removed by the
victory at Omdurman."
The marquis of Salisbury then pointed
out the aptness of Major Marchand's
position, which Baron de Courcel de
nied, and finally the premier, in re
sponse to Baron de Conrcel's sugges

chand' with food and ammunition in
order that he might bo able to reach

then said France wanted an outlet to

Pakis, Oct. 25. It is understood here
that the American peace commission-.
ers have received positive sharp in- j
tractions from President McKinley to '
refuse to discuss further the question of !
the Oubaa debt.
The envoys have been given to under
stand that the president believes there
has already been too much delay over
the matter, and that Spam must be
made to realise at once that the denial
of her proposal is final.
In other words, the American com-;
misskmers must ignore any further at
tempts on the part of the Spaniards to
draw them into debate on the Cuban
debt matter. Spain must accept that as
settled. This is perhaps the most
crushing blow of the war with Spain.

Guam, in the Ladrone islands, has been
chosen by the Americans for the United
States, under the terms of the protocol,

ered at the session was the American
reply to Spain's revised and renewed
propositions of the last few days, and
the indications are that the Cuban ques
tion will be disposed of this week. But
no details have been given out by either
side regarding Spain's presentment of
Friday last, or the American traverse of
the same submitted Monday.
