Theke is to be a fight in Nebraska
this fall and the men who are to lead it

"Intellectual attainment, the mastery of sciences, is a very
poor thing ; not a good thing at all, if along with this increase of
knowledge there has not been the bettering and stiffening of char
acter, and of high moral aims. It is not wealth or equipage or
personal attainments that make one differ from another. It is
character. Ex-President Harrison in an address to school chil
dren last week.
The republican state convention is to
be held in Lincoln May 2,- at 2 o'clock p.
m.t and it was decided to hold but one
convention. L. D. Richards of Fremont,
H. O. Paine of Ainsworth and J. L.
McCarthy of Dixon were elected mem

The Hastings Tribune wants C. H.

In Victoria, B. G, Upper Laird, a
Scotch-Indian family of seven named
McTavkh, was recently massacred on
the theory that they had caused the
scurvy by witchcraft. Their residence
was set on fire at night, and as they came
out to escape the flames, they were shot
down. One, the eighth, escaped to the
woods, and reached Laketown.
Viret Hawkins, a desperado, was shot
and killed Friday night about midnight

same be received by concurrent action
of the leading commercial nations of the
world and at a ratio which shall insure
permanence of relative value between
gold and silver."
Last Wednesday in the house of com
mons, John Redmond, chairman of the
United Irish party, spoke for the inde

England today, he said, stands in dis
graceful isolation, Turkey alone lending
her countenance. The unanimous dis
approval of the world demonstrates that
the war is unjust and it ought therefore
be stopped. His amendment to the
address in reply to the speech from the
throne, was rejected by a vote of 368
Last Thursday morning between 2 and

property, at least $20,000 worth being
destroyed. Mrs. Susie Thompson be
came entangled in a live wire which had
been blown down and was killed. At

Washington, D. C, Feb. 10, 1900.
The "anti-imperialistic league" of this
city, which includes all the anarchists
and latter-day Valandighams in the Dis
trict, has just issued an address notifying
Admiral Dewey that he is not truthful
in all things, and that they know more
about the conditions and events in the
Philippines than he ever did. They be
lieve now with Bryan that the United
States ought to give up the property
and establish a "protectorate."
All authorities here agree, however,
that to maintain a protectorate would
require an actual increase in the stand
ing army, with no chance of deriving any
benefits, and that should Aggy later con
clude to sell the islands to some Euro
pean power, this country would be in a
ridiculous attitude. The situation would
be equally embarrassing in case of inter-
oenine warfare, or in case Aggy conclud
ed to declare war against some other
In discussing the Philippine question
in the house the other day Joseph Sibley,
of Pennsylvania, one of the ablest demo
crats in the nation, and who in the past
has often been mentioned in connection
with the vice presidency, said that
Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson
would be ashamed of the attitude of
democratic leaders of the present day.
He produced records to show that the
old democratic statesmen were expan
sionists, and he urged the party to get
back where it belonged. One result of
the speech was that the democratic mem
bers denounced Sibley as a republican,
and told him to change his seat. The
answer to his speech was not very good,
but it was all they had.
The treasury statement at the close of
business on January 31, showed a balance
in the treasury of $291,950,888. It also
showed that for the past seven months
the receipts of the government were
larger than the expenditures by $29,
822,099. Under the democratic adminis
tration, and by the operations of a tariff
bill which Brvan helped to pass, the
country ran in debt several million dol
lars a month.
Another indication of prosperity is the
large increase in the money circulation
of the country. The total amount of
money in circulation at the close of Jan
uary is found to be 33 per cent greater
than it was in 1896. The actual increase
has been $493,424,155.
The indications now are that during
the coming campaign Nebraska will hear
some of the best orators of the country.
The storm center will revolve around
Nebraska and Kentucky. It is beyond
question that the east is for sound
money, protection and expansion, while
the south will through the aid of its
election machinery be held in line for
democracy. The debatable ground will
be in the central and western states.
Mr. Bryan has just made some
speeches in New Jersey, near here, and
democratic papers triumphantly an
nounce that at one place all the shops
and factories closed so the men could
go to hear the speech. This was not
remarkable, as the main object of the
Bryan campaign seems to be to close up
the factories. H.
Frank Hibbabd of Irvington, Nebr.,
in an impromptu speech before the state
board of transportation the other day
concerning railroad freight rates con
cluded by saying that the farmers and
shippers had been lenient and long suff
ering. "We have .been plucked of our
feathers for years," he said, amidst gen
eral laughter; "even the pin feathers are
gone. Now we have to pay more for
what we buy, you are raising the cost of
getting to market what we have to sell.
We are straggling to grow at least some
more pin feathers while you are plucking
us again and again." By a vote 3 to 2
Wednesday afternoon the board rescind
ed the order of 1897 restoring carload
rates on live stock and instructed its
secretaries to issue a substitute order on
the railroad companies to make a reduc
tion of 10 per cent in the existing cattle
rates and 5 on the rates for shipping
hogs. The roll-call showed the following
result: Yea, Meserve, Wolfe, Cornell;
nay, Porter, Smyth.
Judge William H. Taft of Cincinnati
has been appointed by President MrKin-
ley to be president of the new Philippine
commission, all the members of which
are to be civilians. It is likely that at
leaBt some of the old commission will be
appointed on this. It is generally
thought that so soon as the necessity for
military government ceases, Mr. Taft
will be appointed governor general of the
archipelago. This is in line with repub
lican principles and practices, viz: to
hold the civil authority supreme; the
military as an aid to the civil; no war
except for the sake of peace.
"Cuba is the best country on earth for
American investors today," said B. F.
Hake, who has just returned from a visit
of several weeks in the island weeks
which were spent on the rail and in the
saddle over the western part of the
country. "But prospective investors,"
he says, "should steer clear of the Amer
ican investment and colonization com
panies which have sprung up in Havana
since the war with Spain. A man must
look at what he contemplates buying or
he will be cheated. Good land can be
bought within fifteen miles of Havana on
government roads for $15 per acre, and
off of the roads land equally good will
sell for $1 per acre. Land is the beet
form of investment Property is being
bought in the city of Havana which is
paying 20 per cent on the investment,
and farm land will produce even more.
I saw one acre of tobacco land which will
produce a gross income of $5,000, and
land which appears equally good can be
bought for $20 per acre. I am going
back as soon as I can arrange my affairs
here." Omaha Bee.

Evert fact relative to the natural his
tory of Nebraska is interesting, and many
of them are essential when considering
the development of the natural resources
of the state. The Omaha World-Herald

an artesian well operating for a year and
a half, going down 1450 feet and yield

American commerce with the islands
and countries of the Pacific shows a
greater gain in the year 1899 than that
with any other part of the world. Our
total exports increased twenty million
dollars, and our exports to Asia and
Oceania alone increased over nineteen
million dollars; our total imports in
creased $164,000,000 and forty-eight mil
lion dollars of this increase was from
Asia and Oceania. Exports to Asia and
Oceania increased 27 per cent, while im
ports from that part of the world in
creased 40 per cent Of this increase of
twenty million dollars in exports to Asia
and Oceania, over six millions went to
British Australia, four millions to the
Hawaiian islands, four millions to China,
and 'the remainder distributed to the
various countries and islands of that

Tawing over the unclaimed mall Is

set of Idle youths," said a hotel clerk
yesterday. MAny letters for So-and-so?
theywul ask, giving an imaginary
name, their, object being apparently o
gratify Idle curiosity by studying the
superscriptions and reading the post
als. Last fall an idiot of that type re
ceived a severe lesson here in this
house. He made the usual request,
giving rather a peculiar name, which
he afterward admitted he had thought
of on the spur of the moment. By a re
markable coincidence two central office
detectives were standing near the desk
at the time, and the name he gave was
that of a noted crook who was wanted
by the police of Chicago very badly.
"Without a word more than was nec
essary they took the young gentleman
by the arm and carried him off to po
lice headquarters. He was so astonish
ed that he was unable to make a co
herent explanation and really present
ed a picture or guilt. His story at head
quartern that he had asked for letters
under an assumed name was regarded
as so improbable that they held him
until telegraphic Inquiries could be
made. Of course It turned out that be
waa not the Chicago crook, but he got
the scare of his life, and you may rest
assured that he has dropped that form
of amusement from his Indulgences."
