subterfuge of 'practical politics' that
ought to be stopped. If men are too

The work of Mrs. Nation in assaulting
saloons in Kansas, destroying furniture,
to, is attracting attention all over the

which has been violated every day, doubt
leas, since its enactment. No officials
have been "strenuous" in its enforce
ment, until Mrs. Nation appeared with
her hatchet, and what she has said and
i -to have roused a latent sen-
it that has sought to take the en
forcement of the law into its own hands.
Ia all her history Kansas has been
aaiqae, and so in this. The Journal
believes that violence in one direction
reacts in the opposite direction. The
beat' judgment of the saloon keepers in
Kaasas, under the prohibitory law, mast
tall thorn that they are law-breakers.
The heat judgment of Mrs. Nation and
her frieads must tell them that there is
even bo exease for her violence except
the outlawry of the anti-probibitionists.

eeeoad defy the defers. Better all obey

State SekatorCark of Page county,
Iowa, has made public a way to beat the
twine combine. At a farmers' institute
he displayed a piece of twine and a piece
of rope, resembling a good quality of
hemp. These, he explained, were made
from velvet weed, or abutilon, which
grows rankly on almost every farm and
has been considered useless. The dis
covery that the weed could be thus util
ized was made by D. D. Weir, a farmer,
living near Clarinda. Mr. Weir discov
ered the strength of the fibre of the weed
about two months ago. He picked up a
few strands from the ground after they
had lain there rotting since last summer
and found them very strong. They were
separated into threads as fine as the best
hemp. He endeavored to secure a pat
ent, but found that a discovery of that
nature could not be patented. A
machine for making it could be patented,
but the use of the weed for making twine
and rope must be left free to everybody.
The above, a special to the Chicago
Times-Herald of Thursday, from Creston,
Iowa, will soon be known to every farmer
in Nebraska who buys twine, to the
amount of $5 to $50 worth a season.
Stand up for the west, and make good
use of the weeds.
A telegram to the daily press from
Los Angeles, Cal., of Feb. 5, says: A
whale narrowly escaped capture on the
beach at Santa Monica today. A school
of porpoises was seen coming toward
shore, and moving much more excitedly
than usual. As the porpoises approach
ed shore it was seen that they were pur
suing a whale, at which they leaped on
all sides. As it got into shallow water,
where the breakers were, the whale ap
peared to lose, to some extent, its power
of locomotion, and its nose swung
around so as to graze the iron piling at
the end of the bath house life line.
From there the monster made its way
toward the end of the pleasure pier, and
a number of men with firearms ran to
the end of the wharf and opened fire at
the great animal's head as it appeared
above the water. The bullets took ef
fect The monster was roused to quick
action, and seemed to be driven frantic
with pain. Turning on its side once or
twice it started toward Port Los An
geles, leaving a trail of blood. Two men
started after it with a boat. They suc
ceeded in keeping the trail for nearly a
mile, but the monster turned out to sea
and sank, after which they saw no fur
ther trace of it.
How does this sound to the people who
four years ago said that the United
States would lose its en tire claim against
the Union Pacific Bailroad company?
The item is among telegraphic news from
Washington, D. G, Friday: The Union
Pacific Bailroad company has given
notice to United States Treasurer Rob
erts that it is prepared to anticipate the
payment of one of its notes for $2,910,935
given in settlement of the government's
claim against the company at the time of
the reorganization of the road. The
note, which bears interest at the rate of
3 per cent, would have matured in Feb
ruary, 1902, and by its payment now the
company saves the interest and secures
the release of an amount of Central
Pacific bonds deposited as security.
There remain unpaid four notes, all for
the same amounts, which mature every
six months from 1902."
Judge Samuel Maxwell died at his
residence in Fremont, Monday morning
of heart failure, in less than an hour from
the time he was taken sick. He was
born at Lodi, a suburb of Syracuse, N.
Y., May 20, 1826; removed to Michigan
in 1814; taught school and farmed; in
1853 was elected township clerk; the fol
lowing year school inspector; in 1855
removed to Nebraska and pre-empted
160 acres of government land which he
improved; was admitted to the bar in
1859; elected a delegate to the first
republican territorial convention; elect
ed a representative from Cass county to
the territorial legislature; assisted to
frame the constitution of 1866. In 1871

elected as district judge, judge of the
supreme court, and congressman. He

The ahip subsidy bill is said by the

Camital City Letter.
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 1L 1901.-(Special
Correspondence.) During the past
week eeveral new caucus calls were in
circulation, but none of them made re
markable headway. A conference com
mittee was appointed by the speaker to
agree on terms, but inasmuch as the
anti-Tbompson'element was denied rep
resentation on the committee, the futil
ity of the plan was evident from the
start Finally, on Saturday, a paper
calling for the election of a North Platte
man first was put in circulation, with
little hope of success.
In the meantime the radical anti
Thompson men, who are now known to
have increased in number to nineteen,
exclusive of the Boeewater men, have
remained firm on the proposition that
they will enter no caucus in which
Thompson is considered. They declare
that they are ready to accept any two
true republicans, and their stand seems
to have received quite general approval
inasmuch as over one hundred republi
can papers of the state are declaring
that the Thompson candidacy is dan
gerous to the republican party.
The house had a little flurry of ex
citement a few days ago when a fusion
representative annpnnced that he had
been induced, by a couple of profession
al lobbyists to introduce somesuspicious
bills. This led to the exclusion of the
professionals from the floor, and the ap
pointment of a committee on investiga
tion. While this lobby business led to some
needed discussion, the suspicion is pre
valent that the whole thing was a "grand
stand" play, calculated to detract at
tention and prevent the introduction of
some meritorious bills regulating certain
corporations. The two professionals are
known to be in the employ of the cor
porations interested, and their reputa
tions are such that this flurry would
scarcely injure them, while the member
of the house who took part was possibly
coached by the corporations. If this is
true, the result will be different from
what the "grand-stand" players inten
ded. There has been a considerable change
in the public mind regarding the pro
cedure in the senatorial fight. Two or
three weeks ago the demand was for an
immediate settlement of the contest.
Now the demand from over the state is
for a settlement of the contest Now
the demand from over the state is for a
settlement that will be good for the
future of republicanism, without regard
to the overpowering personal ambition
of any one man. This is a good healthy
sentiment which has set many of the
legislative members to thinking.

If there is any one thing which more
than another wrecks the peace of mind
and shatters the placidity of the Amer
ican free trader, that oue thing Is the
Improved condition of American labor
growing out of the protection policy.
Better It were, In the view of The
American Free Trader, that the work
people of this country were reduced to
abject poverty than that they should
be Id any degree indebted for their
present prosperity to a protective tar
iff. A fellow of this ilk, Schoenbof by
name, rushes into print in the New
York World with a contribution Intend
ed to show that Commissioner Wright
of the United States department of la
bor Is guilty of a partisan perversion
of figures In his recent bulletin show
ing that the rate of wages for 1900, Is
higher than In 1891-2, the years of
greatest prosperity prior to the election
of William McKInley, and very much
higher than In 1893, 1894, 1895 and
1896, the period of Industrial paralysis
following the triumph of free trade In
Mr. Schoenhof, being an American
free trader. Is displeased at this show
ing of Increased wages and puts him
self to some trouble to demonstrate
that Commissioner Wright Is wrong.
Stress Is laid upon the fact that. only, a
limited proportion of the statistics cov-j
er the entire ten year period, 1891-1900;
and that the majority of the statements!
cover not more than three or-'rdur
years. The commissioner's 148 retdrns
represented 26 Industries and 192 occu
pations, a fairly representative num
ber, one would think. It takes time- to
make a poll of the vast Industrial field
of the United States, and In the limited
time at his disposal and In the absence
of any power to compel answers to bis
requests for Information It is not sur
prising that the' commissioner was not
able to cover the field more thoroughly.
Nevertheless the showing was an Im
pressive one. Starting with 100 as the
average In 1891, the wage rate went up
to 100.30 In 1892, after the McKInley
tariff had been In operation a full
year: went down to 09,32 in 1893, fol
lowing the advent of a free tirade ad
ministration, and reached the lowest
point 97.88. in 1895, after a full year of
the Wilson free trade tariff. Recovery
of the wage rate was relatively slow
after the Dlngley tariff went into oper
ation. The average rose to 08.96, drop
ped back to 98.79 In 1808 and then rose
quickly to 101.54 In 1899 and 103.43 In
Excellent as this showing Is on the
side of protection and prosperity, it
falls far short of telling the whole
story. It takes no account of Increased
employment In' 1898 a poll of 2,229
establishments representing 33 Indus
tries snowed an Increase over 1896
(Wilson free trade tariff period) of 64.

The United States commissioner of
labor did not go Into this all Importaat
question of increased employment Hie
statistics ideal only with the lncreasei
wage rate. Not even the federal cen
sus win be able to make known all the
facts of Increased employment under
McKInley and protection prosperity aa
contrasted, with the dismal period of
Democratic tariff making, 1803-7.
The twelfth census will tell of the
enormous Increase of employed labor
and of wage paying In 1900 as com
pared with 1800, but unfortunately It
can make no comparison between the
labor employed and the gross sum of
wages paid In 1805 (free trade tariff
period) and 1900 (Dlngley protective
tariff period) respectively. Neverthe
less the facts of these extraordinary
contrasts are perfectly known through
the very effective Industrial census
polls of the American Protective Tariff
league In 1898 and 1809. They are facta
which bother the American free trader
more than any other and all other facta
with which he has to contend facto
which show unmistakably the gain to
American labor that has come through
the policy of supplying the home mar
ket with the products of home labor.
Aaeleat Castle. Carlesa Cteeic
- Bushen castle, Castledown, Isle of
Man, Is the ancient seat of the kings
and lords of man. The castle Is a veri
table curiosity, both historically and
otherwise. The first mention of It
dates to the year 1257. It was taken
after six months' siege In the year
1315 by Robert the Bruce. The castle
Is built of limestone and Is not a ruin..
Until a few years ago It was used as a
prison. The town clock seen hi the
castle wall was presented by Queen
Elizabeth In the year 1597. It has only
one hand on the dial. This Is the hour
hand. The minutes are judged by the
position of the hand between the hours.
The works of this clock are also a curi
osity. The weight at the end of the
pendulum is a large stone, and It is
driven by a rope coiled around a cylin
der of wood, with another stone at the
end of the rope. The clock Is still going
after Its centuries of service and Is still
the town clock. Newcastle (England)
