Tax recent census shows that about 12 per cent of the population of the United States is colored. The farms in the neighborhood of Pretoria have been proved rich in coal, copper, gold and diamonds. Of the 3153 locomotives built in the United States last year, 505 went abroad, most of them to British lines. The charges against Delegate Wilcox ofHawaii were taken op Friday by house committee on elections, and a bearing had. At Canton, China, Thursday, were reported 100 deaths from the intensely cold weather prevailing. Stand up for Nebraska. Winter tourist travel is reported very heavy to South California over all the roads, and the hotels at Los Angeles and other resorts are crowded. It is stated that the first mulberry tree in America was brought from France in 1826, with the expectation of establishing mulberry groves in New York. What The Joubnai advocated years ago is a possibility. A bill to establish a branch mint at Omaha has been favor ably reported to the lower house of congress. The funeral of the late J. J. Brown was held at the family residence, Omaha, Monday afternoon. A large number of , friends, and especially the older residents of the city were in attendance. The resignation of Congressman Chas. A. Boutelle as representative of the Fourth Maine district in the national congress, was received by Governor Hill Thursday, to take effect February 28. Bepresentattve Albebt D. Shaw of Watertown, N. Y., was found dead Sun day morning at the Riggs house, Wash ington, D. C, death due to apoplexy, probably about 2 o'clock in the morning. A fibe in Havana, Cuba, last week destroyed a lumber yard, sawmill and fourteen houses, valued at $700,000, with insurance on the mill and yard of $93,000. A number of persons were injured, most of them firemen. Hartford's new steam patrol wagon, costing $2500, weighs '3,000 pounds and is operated at an expense of 2Jc a mile. It is of twelve-horse power and runs from fifteen to twenty miles an hour. In five minutes 200 pounds of steam can be generated from cold water. The owners of the Craig & Meeker (Colo.) stage line are arranging to put on an automobile in the spring. The horse less stage will have a capacity of 2,000 pounds and will be run at a minimum speed of fifteen miles an hour. It is said that mails can be delivered in Craig one day earlier with the automobile than is now being done by the old-fashioned stage. Severaii hundred tons of dynamite stored in an underground chamber of the San Andres mine, in the western part of the state of Durango, Mexico, exploded Thursday, blowing the whole top of the mountain off and destroying a portion of the village of miners there. Eighty seven were killed and many injured. Men, women and children were blown into small pieces. The mine iB the most celebrated silver mine in Mexico, and is valued at $20,000,000. Eighty boxes of liquor were stored in an express office at Tekamah, Burt . county, and Monday morning these were all found broken, and the whisky spilled out of them. No clue to this particular Carrie Nation, except that a woman's fascinator was found caught in one of the windows. The statement is made that there is not a single saloon in the county, which is quite a fruitful field for the whisky drummers. Of the pack ages destroyed four-fifths of them be longed to parties in the country. C D. Casper, the radical democratic ' editor of the David City Press, says: "Saloon keeping js outlawed in Kansas, and the women will win. It is law breaker against law-breaker, but the ioiat-keepera are the firstotenders, and so the women ought to win. Toting for laws they never expect to enforce is a subterfuge of 'practical politics' that ought to be stopped. If men are too cowardly to enforce the laws they make they ought to quit making. Prohibition ia Hawass is not statutory, but con stitutional." " The work of Mrs. Nation in assaulting saloons in Kansas, destroying furniture, to, is attracting attention all over the .country. Kansas has a prohibition law, 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. The fret defy the prohibitory law; the eeeoad defy the defers. Better all obey the kw, Decease it is the law. soooooaoooQooexxx: "Cadets must quit hazing or quit the West Point mili tary academy." 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 he removed to Fremont, and was later elected as district judge, judge of the supreme court, and congressman. He leaves his widow, fonr sons and four daughters. The old saying that "a fellow feeling makes men wondrous kind" may be illus trated in the following paragraph. Cer tainly it shows that the so-called fusion forces are not fusing for all purposes; have not sworn-off allegiance to their former, several political parties. How long will they continue to scrap for equal division of the offices and the inciden tals thereto! The brutal democratic majority on the board of supervisors in Platte county asserted themselves last week when they divided the county patronage among the democratic papers to the exclusion of the only populist paper in the county. Plainly fusion is dead in counties where democrats have a brutal majority exclu sive of populist assistance. Stanton Picket. The ahip subsidy bill is said by the democrats to be an eastern bill. They want if possible to array the west against it, but the west helped to adopt a party platform favoring it and is not averse to the proposition. It resolves itself into a question whether it is worth $9,000,000 a year to keep $100,000,000 a year at home and distribute it among American vessel owners, mechanics and farmers. We are of the opinion the Nebraska farmer would be willing to endure his share of the burden for the correspond ing benefits, at least until ship building comes to be an American industry again. They believe it is worth while to restore the merchant marine. Fremont Tribune. Queen Victoria has had eighty-three children and great-grandchildren, of whom seventy-one are living and twelve are dead. She has been not only a great queen, but a great mother of kings, queens and emperors. No other royal family of modern times has ever held within the circle of its membership so aaaay crowns and scepters. The descend ante of Victoria already have assured to them the thrones of the two great em- ixxxxxx; piree of Great Britain and Germany, and it is more than probable that within twenty years the crowns of the three great empires of Britain, Germany and Russia will all be worn at the same time by her grandchildren. New Ycrk World. Is to V. 8 Under this heading we purpose giving from week to week, such information and speculation aa may be of current inter est. Ed. Journal. The deadlocks in the Nebraska, Dela ware and Oregon legislatures are fur nishing strong arguments in favor of the adoption of some other method of select ing senators. The anti-Thompson men express a de termination to hold out against his nomination. If they are determined strongly enough, it would seem that they can prevent his election. 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. Adam Granger. Hiaahxey. Fro the Leader. F. B. Eimersof Columbus-was in town Wednesday.

A second survey has been completed by the Union Pacific surveyors for the proposed new railroad from Central City to Stromsburg, and the surveyors are firmly of the opinion that the road is to bd built and that in a very short time. Another railroad rumor that is being handed around is to the effect that the building of the Central City-Stromsburg branch will call for a new depot at Cen tral City and that if the new road is built the new depot will be forthcoming.

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 1892. 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 1900. 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. 749 hands employed and $3418313.09 In the amount of monthly wagea paid, being an Increase of S1.65 per cent In the number of bands epto jredj gain j 0f 44.05 per eent In the amount of j-18 Pa'd n aln of 11.56 per cent M xae TeraSe wages per cap- ita. 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) Chronicle. Hot Arrrelasr. The person who feels like saying "Let us keep silence, that I may have the talk all to myself," would fain re duce conversation to an entirely one bided affair.
