A Chicaoo firm has bought up nearly
all the apple orchards in the lower Ohio
alley, the object being to start a gigan

point. Which leads us to remark that
occasionally one year's product of somo

A telegram" from Glencoe Camp. Oct.
20, states that after eight hours of con
tinaoaa heavy fighting Tallana Hill was
earned by the-Dublin Fuaileers and the
King's rifles under cover of a well served
artillery fire by the Thirteenth and
Sixty-ninth batteries. The strength of
the Boers was about 9,000 men. They
posted their guns on a hill overlooking
the town, opened fire on the camp and
the battle became general.
Judge Reese's splendid official record
of former years makes assurance doubly
sure as to what may be expected of him
in a general way. He is sound, solid,
sure, steadfast in right doing, whether
as a public official or a private citizen.
Democrats, all over the state, as they
more and more come to know the inner
man that Holcombhas shown himself to
be in office, are seeing the importance of
electing Judge Reese and laying Hol
comb aside.
Last Saturday morning about 7
o'clock William Pugh got his foot very
badly ground up in the cylinder of his
threshing machine. He had to have his
leg amputated below the knee. The ac
cident was caused by a team becoming
frightened at tho noise of the machine,
when it started to run with a boy in the
wagon. Mr. Pugh was on top of the
separator attending to the strawstacker,
and thought he could head off the team
and stop it by jumping from the front
of the machine. His foot slipped and
went into the cylinder. Marquette
President McKinley's views as publicly given by himself:
"Peace first, then, with charity for all, establish a government of
law and order, protecting life and property and occupation, for the
well being of the people, a government in which they shall partic
ipate under the Stars and Stripes."
Paschal s Reese Club.
The editor of the Telegram had time
and space in la6t week's issue for a
column and a half "write up" of the
Reese club of this city.
To say that an editor is in very small
business parading the names of our best
and most honored citizens before the
public in the manner he did, is to put it
very mildly.
It may be great sport for the editor to
weave such a fabrication of falsehoods as
he did in this article, and he may
chuckle over his production, and it may
meet the approval of a few of tbe lower
element, but when an editor will resort
to such methods for political purposes,
and try to elevate and advance the
interest of his own party by assailing
good citizens and using his efforts to
create dissention and hard feelings, that
editor is no ornament to society.
The Reese club has over 200 members,
and Mr. Garlow was nominated for pres
ident by one of tho men this same Pas
chal would have the public believe was
an enemy. Every member has one object
in view, viz: to advance the interests of
the republican candidates.
The adage that "he who laughs last,
laughs best" will prove true in this case.
Fair Play.
Harrington Writes a Itter.
M. C. Harrington, Democratic nomi
nee for congress in the Sixth district, is
also a victim of the habit of letter -writing,
as witness the following sent by
him to Jnan Boyle of Kearney, chair
man of the Democratic district commit
tee: Kearney, Neb.
Joan Boyle, Esq.,
Dear Sir The stato central committee
is urging prompt action. We must
accept the inevitable. The future of
Democracy in the Sixth district depends
largely upon the number wo can draw
from Populist sources. There is only one
more year to wait and fusion will bo all
over. There will he but two parties and
the leaders of the Democratic party now
will be the recognized leaders then. Sub
mit gracefully, even tho' we havo to
stretch a point to do so. Find enclosed a
certificate which please sign in the two
places marked before a justlco of tho
peace or a notary public who has a seal.
McKcel, who has been absent in Virginia,
will lc at home in a few days and want to
havo it ready for him.
M. C. Harrinoton,
This letter is of particular interest
and significance to all Populists of Ne
braska. It sets forth the avowed pur
pose of the Democrats to swallow the
Populists next year. What concessions
are made this year by the Democrats
arc expected to bear fruit an hundred
fold next year, when Candidate Bryan
and the silverplated Democracy will
put the Populist party out of sight.
This is the meaning of the adherence of
Bryan to Holcoinb in the state conven
tion, despite tho protest of many lead
ing Democrats who objected to support
ing Holcomb, but who are doing so in a
desultory sort of way merely to profit by
it next year, when the Populist parry,
just as Mr. Harrington writes, is to dis
appear and when leaders of Democracy
now will continue to be leaders after
the swallowing has taken place. Mr.
Harrington's letter, which has just
come to tho surface, throws a strong
side light on the working of Boss Bryan
and his Democratic machine.
In the course of n cutting reply to
Colonel Bryan, who wants to tell the
Filipinos that they are free to govern
themselves, John J. Ingalls says: "Bnt
supposo after we drove Spain from Cuba
an army of insurgents and malcontents
under the lead of an ambitions and un
scrupulous outlaw, had attacked our
troops, defied the Hag, burned towns,
levied contributions upon reluctant in
habitants, kept up guerilla warfare,
fired on hospitals and flags of truce and
refused all overtures for peace, what
then about Cuba, Mr. Bryan?" Ingalls
further says: "When McKinleysaid that
where the flag was raised it would float
in peace and triumph nnd honor, he hit
the bull's eye and rang tho bell. This
closed the debate."
The Madison Chronicle says that tho
wind of Sunday week at Norfolk got a
little gay. A barn in Edgewater Park
addition to Norfolk was picked up and
carried some distance and set down over
a wagon. The horses that hod been oc
cupying the barn were somewhat sur
prised at their uncovering, but were not
injured. At Meadow Grove the wind
struck P. A. Crann's buildings at 2
o'clock in the afternoon, and cattle
Bheds, feed racks, corn cribs and gates
were carried a distance of 80 rods and
smashed into kindling wood. A granary
12x32 and 12 feet high was taken off its
foundation and half the roof taken
away. It twisted iron bars in two, and
blew corn flat to tbe ground.
The dailies of Wednesday last gave
account of .a heart-rending casualty at
Geneva, occurring the evening before.
Three children of Jacob Hofferber, re
spectively C, 9 and 11 years, came home
from school this evening, and undertook
to start a fire in the cook stove with
kerosene. When they applied a match
to the kindling the fire extended to the
room where they had spilled the fluid,
and set the clothing of all three afire.
The eldest is dead, and the other two
are 6o badly burned there is little or no
hope of life. One was burned in the
face and sidetaf the head so badly that
his ear dropped off. The others were
horribly burned about the arms, breast
and side.
Ralph Pcgsley, the republican can
didate for county judge, is a youne man
of excellent character, and well qualified
as to a knowledge of the law, for the
proper discharge of the duties of the
office. He was a soldier in the Philip
pines, doing his full duty, gaining the
esteem of his comrades and the respect
of officers. He is a level-headed young
man, judicious in thought, word and
deed, carefully weighing bis words, and
placing them with the exactness of rifle
balls Bhot straight at the mark. You
will not regret voting for Mr. Pngsley.
ZHow Governor Holcomb Defeated!
f' It Till He Organized a Company.
The remarkable record of Silas A.
Holcomb in the matter of insurance leg
islation challenges the attention of. the
people of the state and leads at once to
the inevitable conclusion that it would
be unsafe to place such a man on the
supreme bench. A weak man in the
presence of temptation while in the
gubernatorial chair, what could be ex
pected of him as a judge? What case
would be safe in bis hands?
During the legislative session of 1895
there was a determination to pass a law
which would allow the organization of
mutual companies for the insuring of
village and town property. To defeat
this there was present at the state house
an organized lobby, possessed of ample
means for oil room purposes. It was
well known at the time that $10,000 in
cash was on hand to be used in defeat
ing mutual insurance legislation.
On Jan. 17th Mr. Brockman of Rich
ardson introduced house roll 240, a bill
authorizing the formation of mutual
companies. It was perfectly satisfac
tory to tho people who were demanding
mutual insurance. The record of the
introduction of the bill is found on page
2G1 of the house journal.
On Feb. 26th the bill was reported to
tho general file and was delayed there
until March 27th, when it was taken up
in the committee of the whole and
recommended for passage. On March
SOth (page 1183 of the house journal) it
was passed by unanimous vote. Such
reformers as Barry, Hull and Soderman
were there and voted for the bill. The
reason for the unanimous vote was that
the insurance boodle had been in sight
so notoriously that any man votinr
against the bill would have been marked
at once as a boodler.
The lobby concentrated its efforts to
defeat the bill in the senate. Every
method of delay was resorted to. At
least one prominent clerk was bribed.
Money was offered to senators to get
tkcin to delay or lose the bill. At one
time the one crooked clerk and one
boodling senator carried it away, and
were made to disgorge only after the
senate had issued warrants for their
In the senate, as in the house, all the
boodle plans failed. The bill passed
with but one dissenting vote, and that
one senator was politically blacklisted
for that act, and has never since been
allowed to hold office.
But the old-line insurance people knew
what they were doing. They had de
layed the final passage of the bill until
the last day of tho session. They knew
what Governor Holcomb would do.
They know that he would wait until
after the adjournment of the legislature,
when all danger of passing over his
head was past, and then ho would veto
the bill.
The record shows that on April 5th
(page 1359 of tho house journal), the
bill was presented to the governor by a
joint committee. Until it reached his
hands it was carefully guarded to keep
tbe lobbyists and boodlers from stealing
it. At that late day one of the clerks
was offered 1.000 if he would lose the
bill or allow himself to be held up and
robbed of it.
After the adjournment of the legis.
latoro Governor Holcomb carried out
his part of tho contract. After numer
ous consultations with ft Lincoln lob
byist he vetoed the bill. For this action
he was never able to give a decent ex.
cose, and left himself open to the strong
suspicion that he had entered into a
satisfactory deal with the boodling
The defeat of this meritorious bill in
such a suspicious manner caused much
indignation over the state and the next
legislature met with the determination
to pass a mutual iufinrauce bill and put
it through so early that a cowardly gov
ernor could not head it off. Jones of
JJemaha on the 18th of January, 1897,
introduced house roll 183, a bill exactly
similar to the Brockman bill, except
that it had several mors sections relat
ing to assessments and other matters,
which were also covered in the laws al
ready on the statute books. The bill
passed the house on the 13th of March
by unanimous vote. It passed tbe sen
ate on the 2d of April with jus one
negative vote and was presented to the
governor on the 3d of April.
For some reason not orally explained,
but which is pretty well shown np by
the records. Governor Holcomb held the
till until the 8th of April, when he an
nounced to the legislature that he had
signed it.
Now the sequel: That flams day the
news was given out that a new insure
auco company had been organized under
tho new Uvw and that Silas A. Holcomb
was elected as its president This action
had been taken before the bill was
signed and the salary of the president
was fixed at $50 per month. Comment
on this transaction is unnecessary. "The
records are the best evidence."
From that date to the close of his
official term as governor Holcomb drew
money every month as follows:
Salary as governor $208.33
Salary as insurance president 60.00
Bake-off in house rent deal 19.80
This was a pretty comfortable salary
for a "plain man," and did not count
the other perquisites he might get in
the way of railroad passes, assessments
from clerks .and appointees and other
"oomplirnentaries," as O. W, Palm
would term them.
Silas made the office pay, but the in
snranoe scandal will be remembered. It
will have another chapter.
Popular sympathy in continental
Europe seems to be decidedly with the
Boers and against England. Parisian
papers are generally bitter in their de
nunciation of Great Britain as grasping,
and brutal One Paris paper expresses
delight over the Boers' ultimatum, re
marking: "It has remained for a hand
ful of Dutchmen to say to Great Britain
what France was eager to say to her
after the Fssboda affair, bat did not
Achen tolo the golden wedge,
And while ho kept it
Hidden in his tent,
The curse of God.
Who hates a thief,
Rested on Israel.
But when the whiskered prophets
Took Achen to the suburbs
Of the camp.
And stoned him there with stones
Till he was dead.
Tho curse was lifted
And Israel in the next campaign,
Carried every precinct
In the state.
You are the Achen, Si,
You took the wedge.
You, Si, took everything in sight,
And now
The whiskered prophets of reform
Are after
They're pelting you with stones.
They've driven you to the suburbs
Of the camp.
And there they'll fling you,
As worthless rubbish, into the
Ash barrel
Of oblivion.
They're building now
A mighty wull
Around the supreme court,
With iron gate so hi? h
And bars so close
That e'en
The sllpperest weasel of your gang,
Cannct squeeze through.
And on that gate they'll carve
"No cunning fox of
Sham reform.
No trap door conjurer of
Ballot frauds,
No constitution breaker
With stolen house rent
In his jeans
Can enter
You bet it's tough.
But Si,
You had your chance.
You've hud your day in politics.
The people havo been kind to yon.
They tucked you in a carriage
And at
Broken Bow,
They cheered your cause.
And waved you on with banners.
And you, old fox,
Bowed and smiled,
With sanctimonious mien.
Knowing full well
That all the while
You hail
The wedge.
Oh. Silas! Silai!
Had you but served the people,
And not yourself,
Thoy would not now,
In this election,
Remain at homo to husk the corn
And leave you
Naked to your enemies.
Lincoln Journal.
General Fred Fnnston, like Admiral
Dewey, has disappointed the oppon
ent's of the administration's war policy.
He has confirmed what the admiral
has said since his return. He denies the
capacity of tho Filipinos for self-government
and favors going ahead in a vigor
ous manner to subdue the rebellion in
Luzon. He characterizes Aguinaldo as
a "con" man. He is confidenciug his
followers into believing they can whip
the Americans and drive them ont of
the islands. As a disciple of George
Washington, according to General
Fnnston, the little rebel is a miserable
failure, and Nebraskans who may think
they are supporting a pure and high
minded patriot by voting against the
administration should open their eyes to
the facts.
Silas A. Holcomb as governor repudi
ated Mr. Sturgess, recommended by or
ganized labor for appointment on the
state commission for the Omaha exposi
tion. United labor now has its oppor
tunity to repudiate Mr. Holcomb and
the prospects are very good that it will
do so. The truth is there is positively
no warrant for labor of any kind sup
porting Mr. Holcomb and his ticket, on
general principles. All kinds of labor
is in great demand all over the state, at
enhanced wages, and this in no wise
because there is a Populist state admin
istration, but because the good Lord has
sent big crops and the Republican party
has maintained sound money and kept
its promise to reopen the mills and re
store prosperity.
Mr. Bryan is making, with some va
riations, the same speech in Ohio and
Kentucky that he made in Humphrey,
this county. It is our candid opinion,
which we freely express, that Mr. Bryan
and his followers will find when the
votes are counted next month, that tbe
great body of the people believe a polit
ical party should have some vital prin
ciples for whiflh they stand, aside from
mere opposition to the administration.
