The Hastings Tribune calls attention
to the fact that politicians who imagine
they have a pull, are working "tooth and

something to do with it.

ago we quoted the senti-
U of the Cedar Rapids Outlook, a
popalist newspaper, advocating the ap
poiatment of a republican senator to
saccaed Senator Hayward, who was
elected by a republican legislature, but
died before doing duty.
The editor of the Outlook is not only
an able writer but conscientious in his
conviction of duty. We call especial at
tention to the last sentence of this
article as' truth concentrated:
"Gov. Poynter has- appointed Judge
W. Y. Allen to fill the senatorial office
made vacant' by the death of Senator
Hayward. We favored the appointment
of a republican as decent respect for the
dead and for the friends of the dead.
We favored this course ss the best poli-
afor the fusion party. Allen and
tehcock would both have been elected
by the next legislature, by general con
sent and to their greater honor than is
possible now. The only proper repre
sentation of the people's will as to
senator is now the present legislature,
and if it had been called to meet in
special session it would have elected a
republican. Mr. Reese wss. the man
chosen by the republicans for the high
est ofloe in the state at the last election
and if he bad been appointed the repub
licans could not have made any reason
able complaint He would probably
have done no good at Washington and
the chances are that Allen will be able
to do nothing of consequence in the
present senate. The exhibition of greed
for office which has been made in this
affair has done more harm to the fusion
cause in Nebraska than Allen will be
able to do good by this appointment
(Special correspondence.) It seems
that there is to bo a change in the po
litical fight in congress if the plans of
the democrats can be carried out The
republicans of the bouse got the minor
ity side in an embarrassing position by
forcing them to discuss the money ques
tion. Jast at the time when Bryan was
trying to avoid the silver question and
work up some other issue upon which to
go before the country, the democrats in
congress were compelled to stand up and
defend free coinage.
Now it aDDears to a close observer
that the house democrats are going to
let the senators wrestle with the money
question, while they jump into the arena
with the anti-expansion issue. It is be
lieved that during January all manner
of resolutions will be offered criticising
the administration and declaring for the
abandonment of the Philippines. By a
flood of oratory on this question the
democrats hope to divert the attention
of the country from the silver issue, and
at the same time so delay the business
of the session that very little will be
In the meantime it is the clear inten
tion of the democratic senators to talk
and bushwhack, gerrymander and delay
on the currency bill, to the damage of
all other business. It was on this ac
count that they were so anxious to have
Allen appointed. They proposed to use
the windy and obstreperous Nebraska
senator as a central figure in the game
of delsy. He will be utilized to "bnck
the line" every time play is called. This
also explains why Bryan was so anxious
to have Allen appointed.
The all winter tilt on the money ques
tion will be useful to Allen for other
reasons. He is already committed on
the Philippines question and will be
glad to avoid that and cling to the silver
debate, where his old speeches cannot
be used against him.
The appointment by the national com
mittee of the new bureau of literature
for the coming campaign cannot but be
gratifying to republicans of the western
states, ss it is made up entirely of wes
tern men. Perry Heath, the head of the
bureau, was a western newspaper man,
and was connected with a Nebraska
paper for over ten years. Charley
Dawes, is an old Nebrsskan, and Senator
8houp, the third man on this most im
portant committee, is an Idaho man.
From the first move it is plain that the
west is to have muoh attention in the
coming campaign, and that Nebraska
will be especially well looked after.
The Nebraska members of the present
congress sre showing great activity in
looking after the interests of their con
stituents. Besides, Thurston, Mercer
and Burkett are each on important com
mittees, and their corps of clerks and
secretaries are kept busy. The fusion
members from Nebraska are taking it
much easier, and each of them expects
to make a private saving from the fund
allowed for secretary hire.
The commercial interests of this
country are already feeling the effects
of commercial expansion in Cubs, Porto
Bico and the Philippines. The exports
from this country to the islands have
more than doubled in value in two
years, and it is believed that for the
present fiscal year ending next July,
there will be another doubling up.
There has been a large increase in the
exports to the Philippines, and this does
not include the goods and supplies
shipped there for army and navy use.
The shipments from the Philippines to
the United States amounted to more in
1899 than they did in 1897, showing that
the insurrection is not preventing the
.commercial business of the islands from
being carried on.

Some idea of Nebraska's resources ss
an agricultural and stock state may be
gained when we consider that last year
she raised 6V315.000 bushels of rye, 51,
961,200 of wheat 54,411,900 of oats, 180,
611,944 of corn and that there were
7,863,786,715 hesd of cattle, 18,455,177 of
hogs, 3,754359 of sheep and 103,03 of
horses and mules. Besides these the
dairying interest of the state is one of
considerable magnitude and continually
growing. The poultry business is a
source of great profit to the farmers of
the state. Cutting and marketing the
bay crop of the Platte and Elkhorn val
leys is a big industry in itself and brings
in a good revenue, as it furnishes work
for scores of men during the early fall
and the winter months. Then there is
the beet sugar industry which promises
before long to become one of the leading
products of the state, besides numerous
smaller industries scattered all over the
state. When one remembers that it is
only twenty-five years since the real
development of the state began it is cer
tainly a remarkable record and we do
not believe can be equaled by any other
state. Nebraska will one day be one of
the richest states in the Union because
she has the soil, the climate and the
people to make her so. Schuyler Sun.
"Do American men and women realize
that in five cities of our country alone
there were during the last school term
over sixteen thousand children between
the ages of eight and fourteen taken out
of the public schools because their ner
vous systems were wrecked, and their
minds were incspable of going on any
further in the infernal cramming system
which exists today in our schools?" in
quires Edward Bok in the January
Ladies' Home Journal. "And these six
teen thousand helpless little wrecks,'' he
continues, ."are simply the children we
know about Conservative medical men
who have given their lives to the study
of children place the number whose
health is shattered by over-study at more
than fifty thousand each year. It is
putting the truth mildly to state that, of
all American institutions, that which
deals with the public education of our
children is at once the most faulty, the
most unintelligent and the most cruel.''
