Just now there is some curiosity as to
what Mr. Hitchcock of the World-Herald
is going to do, because Governor Poyn
ter didn't appoint him senator, or per
haps rather why the governor submitted
to be dictated to by William J. Bryan.
Many of the democratic wing of the
fusion forces have been wondering and
wondering why it was that if the gover
nor had serious objections against Mr.
Hitchcock, he couldn't find some other
democrat who would be comparatively
free from opposition. There were plenty
of them, surely.
We think the truth is that Bryan and
Allen are the would-be political dictators
for Nebraska, and are not long-sighted
enough to see that it would have possi
bly delayed somewhat the end of their
reign to appoint Hitchcock or some
other democrat When politics in Ne
braska was mainly (and almost wholly)
Which railroad company shall domineer?
public matters were in much better
shape as a rule than they are now.
Who believes that anything like the
best men of the fusion forces are man
aging their affairs?
Who believes that Bryan, Allen, Hol
comb, Poynter and Robison will con
tinue long unchecked in their career?
The dullest sighted have now had
abundant opportunity to see the utter
and thorough selfish character of the
populist leaders, demonstrated in great
broad flaring letters across the political
sky of Nebraska, and from now on the
yoke that they will try to place upon
their presumed allies, but would-be ser
vants will be very strongly resented.

There is going to be quite a readjust
ment among the politicians. Democrats
voting for the gold standard bill and
silver republicans are taking their doll
rags and leaving the republican ranks.
The proclamation of the latter as to
their motives is put in strong and forci
ble terms, but not less forcible is the
declaration of those who are deserting
the free eilver ranks. Here is an
ungrammatical bnt strong statement
from Congressman Joe Sibley:
I publicly predicted that if McKinley
and the gold standard were successful,
prices would fall with a corresponding
increase in the purchasing power of the
gold dollar, and we would have an era of
hard times and commercial depression
such as this country has seldom wit
nessed. Now I look around me, and I
see the forges blazing, the fires lighted
in all the furnaces, the shuttles weaving
and the looms spinning. Every man
who has a day's labor to sell finds a
ready market for it. Everywhere there
are plenty and prosperity, and so it
occurs to me that somebody must have
been mistaken, and perhaps that fellow
Good sense, but bad grammar. St
The story circulated to the effect that
Major John A. Logan had been killed
by his own men in the Philippines is put
to rest by Lieutenant Colonel Brereton
of the Thirty-third infantry, in a letter
to Mrs. Logan, in which he says: "Your
husband died a hero, while leading in
battle the command to which he had
been assigned upon joining his regiment
the Third battalion. His battalion was
the advance guard of the regiment in
attack upon the town of San Jacinto.
Yesterday, November 11, Major Logan
was leaning over a wounded soldier, to
assist him, when he was shot through
the head. This was shortly before 9
o'clock in the morning. Prompt sur
gical attendance was at hand, but the
major never recovered consciousness
and died while being conveyed to the
hospital. The exact locality was about
two miles from San Fabian on the road
to San Jacinto. I was one of the last
persons who saw him alive and he was
brave and self-possessed until struck
down by the enemies' bullet"
The supreme court has sustained the
right of the State Board of Transporta
tion to regulate express rates. This
doubtless will prove a serious blow to
the members of the board who enjoy be
ing restrained from doing anything to
interfere with the transportation rate
makers. If the board has power to reg
ulate express rates it must also have
power to, regulate railroad freight and
passenger rates, and that being true the
live stock shippers who resent the recent
arbitrary advance in rates should lose no
time in invoking the power of the board.
Rates'on live stock affect the interests of
the farmers directly and the State Board
of Transportation is composed of popo
cratie officials whose party was founded
on the issue of reduced railroad rates for
Nebraska products. A test case will
show the shallowness of the pretensions
of the reformers. Omaha Bee.
There was another case to come up in
county court today in which the court
was asked to declare a missing man
legally dead in order that his estate
might be settled. Andrew Moline dis
appeared from his home, Logan town
ship, in October, 1892, and no word has
been heard of him by friends or relatives
since then. Inasmuch as he had been
missing for over seven years the judge
ordered that he be considered as dying
intestate and on the filing of a $1,000
bond by Louis Moline, the latter was
declared administrator of the estate.
