A cartoon in the Philadelphia North
American represents Bryan in the atti
tude of a platform stump speaker, seven
silver bricks under his feet, and two
sacks of campaign contribution within
easy reach. The text he is expounding
is "Abolish all trusts but this."
The St. James Gazette uses peppery
language touching General Buller's re
port, saying: "Never in the history of
armies did it happen that generals
scribbled their confessions of failure or
defeat, of useless deaths of men and of
discredit to the flag in a manner which
suggests a careful selection from the
forced jocularity of the funny man, the
slangy chatter of the horsey woman and
the gabble of the smoking room late in
Twelve sacks of mail addressed to
Francis Truth, "the divine healer," who
was arrested recently, charged with
fraud, have been impounded by the
United States government under the
usual "fraud order." Many of the thou
sands of letters contained in the twelve
sacks carry money for "absent treat
ment," the usual charge for which was
$5.00. The letters which bear names
and addresses on the envelopes will be
returned to the writer, with the money.
The others will be sent to the dead letter
office at Washington to be opened.
Here are some of the inscriptions on
the tombstones in the democratic grave
yard: "The price of silver governs the
price of wheat "Under the gold stand
ard the reserve fund cannot be main
tained except by the sale of government
bonds." "The offico should seek the
man." "A railroad pass is a railroad
bribe." "The silver question is not dead
but gone before." J-Each of these mem
orable sentences is a mute testimonial
that somebody lied. Will there be a
resurrection of such? Not this year.
Ax open letter from Major J. N. Kilian
of this city, under date of April 21, ap
- peered in the Omaha Bee of Monday,
stating his reasons for declining to make
the race for the nomination for congress.
He asks permission to say: "I am a re
publican," -but he feels constrained to
make some criticisms on the actions of
the party and some "self-constituted
'leaders,'" calling upon his friends to join
with him in his efforts to rid the party
of the political Jonah, etc. There seems
no doubt about the major's military re
cord, but in that there were not many
orders to right about face and turn the
back toward the enemy. Of course, he
is entitled to his opinions, and also the
privilege of exerting himself as a repub
lican to seek to have his views prevail,
and The Journal does not understand
that be means to leave the fighting ranks
of the republican army at all, but simply
that if certain men are placed in com
mand of the Nebraska regiment (speak
ing politically) he does not desire to be
aaderstood as wishing to be selected as
oae of the captains, just at present The
major is impulsive, and is apt to go
cross-lots to bead off the other fellow,
and gain the end in view. We commend
to the major one phase of Senator Hoar's
address the other day, while addressing
the senate on the Philippine situation,
and as a republican freely criticizing
the national administration, he gave ex
pression to the truth that be had no ase

American exports for March were 8134,313,348. This tre
mendous sum was exceeded only one month in all the history of
our export trade, that month being December, 1898. Let it not
be forgotten that this has been done under a law aud a policy
which our friends, the enemy, have said must keep American goods
out of "the markets of the world." Remarkable, is it not? Fre
The Search for the Man Who Can.
There is but one straight road to suc
cess, and that is merit The man who
is successful is the man who is useful.
Capacity never lacks opportunity. It
cannot remain undiscovered, because it
is sought by too many anxious to utilize
it A capable man on earth is more val
uable than any precious deposit under
the earth, and the object of n much more
vigilant search. Whoever undertakes
to build a house, to cultivate a farm, to
work a mine, -to obtain relief from paiu,
to maintain a legal controversy, or to
perform any function of civilized life, is
actively searching for other men quali
fied to aid him. To appreciate the thor
oughness of the search it is necessary
only to realize the nnraberof persons
engaged in all these pursuits and un
dertakings throughout the world. From
such a search no form of ability can re
main concealed. If the possessor of
capacity sought to hide himself he would
be discovered and induced to employ
his ability for the benefit of those who
To be successful, then, one has but to
qualify himself thoroughly for some oc
cupation. Every man has some natural
aptitude. In these days the training by
which natural ability is developed into
effective ability can be obtained by
every youth. No man can hope to be
the best in any field of labor, but every
one can hope to be among the best
Time occupied in worrying about op
portunities, openings and starts is time
wasted, because to every capable man a
"start" and an "opportunity" are al
ways furnished by the necessities of all
other men. W. Bourke Cockran in
The Detroit Free Press (anti-Bryan
democrat) is doing what it can to keep
the- democracy from nominating Bryan,
and issues a call for "the most profound
wisdom and statesmanship of the party,"
asserting that "there is no opening for a
party of one man of one idea." The
New York Sun takes up the subject and
refers to Bryan as "an enthusiastic col
lector of issues," which is about the
fittest synonym for the "orator of the
Platte," and the "Nebraska son of thun
der" that we have yet seen. The nomi
nation of McKinley on one side and
Bryan in opposition are foregone con
clusions, There is some interest in
knowing who their running mates are to
bo, and some (among the fnsionists) as
to how many added issues are to be
tacked on to the Chicago platform, but
aside from these, we believe that the
great body of voters havo made up their
minds that McKinley will succeed him
self, and that therefore they will "let
well enough alone." So far along, the
f usionists have not been able to budge
that fixed idea.

A college professor once, tried to con

"These languages lire the conduits of

about $112,000 wore found concealed

away from the flames, liberated two
horses, and with an ax knocked boards
enough off the hog pen to save the
porkers from roasting. Mr. and Mrs.
Foley were absent at Platte Center and
left the youngsters in charge of un
elderly Polish woman.
Our i&sno of Murch 3, 1880, contained
this paragraph: We wish it distinctly
understood that TnE Journal is written
as a historical record to be read not only
by the present dwellers in the land, but
referred to by future generations as a
faithful record of local events. For this
reason we desire the co operation of our
patrons and friends in every neighbor
hood to furnish us facts suitable for
publication; and now, twenty years from
the time The Journal editor wrote that,
he is occasionally engaged in culling
froiri the record for present readers, to
many of whom the items will vivify the
panorama of by-gone years.

Some years .ago the late Dr. Colo
nette undertook to make a bottle of
port that should not cost more than
threepence which the best judges
should be unable to distinguish from
the highest priced wine that could be
obtained in the island. The preparation
was compounded openly before a large
assemblage, and three competent
judges were selected to test the prod
uct. The basis of this compound was
cider, colored with an infusion of log
wood. To this he added a few grains
of tartaric acid and salt of tartar to
give respectively a rough taste and a
mellowed appearance. When three
glasses of this compound and three
glasses of recognized port were pre
sented to the judges to taste and pass
their verdict, without being told which
was which, they" unanimously pro
nounced in favor of the doctor's cheap
preparation and rejected the genuine
port. What they would have said the
next morning if they had consumed a
bottle of this preparation remains a
matter of conjecture. London, Chroni

Passengers going east for business, will
naturally gravitate to Chicago as the
great commercial center. Passengers
re-visiting friends or relatives in the
eastern states always desire to "take in"
Chicago en route. All classes of passen
gers will find that the "Short Line" of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Rail
way, via Omaha and Council Bluffs,
affords excellent facilities to reach their
destinations in a manner that will be
sure to give the utmost satisfaction.
A reference to the time tables will in
dicate the route to be chosen, and, by
asking any principal agent west of the
Missouri river for a ticket over the
Chicago, Council Bluffs & Omaha Short
Line of tho Chicago, Milwaukee & St
Paul Railway, yon will be cheerfully
furnished with the proper passport via
Omaha and Chicago. Please note that
all of the "Short Line" trains arrive in
