A telegram dated San Francisco,
May 20, at 9:20 a. m., stated that Mrs.
McKinley's physicians reported that she
had the best night since her illness, and
that her progress is very satisfactory.
The State Board of Equalization have
placed the valuation of the B. & M. rail
road at $10,580 per mile, and the U. P.
at $9,800. The total valuation of rail
road property in the state was increased
175,000, above what it was last year.
In the house of commons last Thurs
day, Lord George Hamilton, the Indian
secretary, said that the number of per
sons now receiving relief is 381,000, and
it is expected to increase rapidly, owing
to the failure of the spring crops in India.
It is said that half the difficulty of
fighting any severe battle or accomplish
ing any hard task vanishes when a man
feels that he has comrades at his side
fighting in the same cause, or that the
eyas of those he loves are upon him, and
their hearts praying for his victory.
It has been arranged that when Presi
dent McKinley and party leave San
Francisco they will come east over the
Central Pacific to Ogden and to Omaha
over the Union Pacific. The train will
run as a special, and owing to the con
dition of Mrs. McKinley's health no stop
will be made along the line.
It seems that the name of the man
killed by Schuyler's colored policeman
Jake Thomas, was Frank Wilson, and
that he has a brother in New York City,
who is an Episcopal minister. The ver

H. E. Seaman, a traveling salesman of
Omaha, died at Hot Springs, S. D., Fri
day, in the plunge bath, the result of too
long a bath. This is the second death
at the plunge in ten years, both from the
same causes. He was seemingly well
when he went into the water, but in
forty-five minutes became helpless, and
nothing could be done to relieve him.

Thousands of Nebraekans have voted
a fusion ticket for the last time. The
eontinaed and phenomenal prosperity of
the state, the immense demand and high
prices for Nebraska products, the failure
of Bryan's direful predictions of calam
ity, the natural revulsion of feeling
against the disloyal and dangerous doc
trines preached by the Commoner, and
the popular conviction that Mr. Bryan
and hia coterie have had all the chances
they are entitled to, have weakened the
fmterast of the masses in town and coun
try in the present and future of popu
lism. The eraze has evidently run its
eoarse in Nebraska, as well aa in Iowa

"Don't get alarmed about militariam
or imperialism. We know no imperialism
in the United States except the imperial

Kinley in one of his Texas speeches.
WHY IS IT?
We get a singular request from Lin
coln, Nebraska, a moat singular request
Byron Beall tells us that in the near
future, June, he is to preach a sermon
upon the theme, "The Gospel Ministry
and the Coming Revival," and, as a
helper to the sermon he desires to have
a symposium by Nebraska editors on the
subject "What are the needs of the present-day
ministry in order more effect
ively to reach the people?"
Your request assumes that the minis
try are right in all essentials, but that,
for some heretofore unaccountable rea
son, the people have not been reached,
as they should be.
Your request assumes that practical
men could tell, if they would, what the
And that editors are practical men.
These boundaries being outlined, you
would naturally get answer somewhat in
consonance with the design of your
According to the thinking of the
writer hereof, the ministry are radically
wrong. The gospel as laid down in the
scripture is not the gospel that they
preach. In some sense they are right.
They believe the world should be made
better; but they are wrong when they
imagine that mere words are the means
of making it better. The Glad Tidings,
which shall be of Great Joy to many
people, is, so to say, the discovery and
the adoption of a new way of living; a
new motive in life; a radical change of
view, so radical, so vital and real and
strong, that it was called the new birth.
It is a spiritual reality, and too many are
endeavoring to "work it" somewhat as
a commercial investment. It will not so
be treated. The rewards of that life are
far other than houses and lands; perish
able things and things of sense; but they
are purity and peace; real content; an
apprehension of what is right and good,
and a life conforming itself with the
But this is an exceedingly busy world,
not only for preachers but also for edi
tors, and I must hurry to a close. Mod
ern life is linked together, and ever since
the Master preached the laws of the
kingdom, there has been a new element
at work among men, very imperfectly
understood by even the first disciples.
What a wonderful force it has been in
subduing man's animal nature, and mak
ing him amenable to justice and right
Notwithstanding the evident lack of
faith of the ordinary ministers in the
Living Word of God, there are believers
who think that God's presence is over all
his works; that there is a sure way of
knowing what is right through doing
what is right; that the Creator of the
Universe is the Father of us all, spirit
ually, and that his will is that we shall
come to our own, even though it may be
through much tribulation.
If the gospel were preached now as it
was at the beginning, the common peo
ple would, as then, "hear it gladly."
The Woodmen of the World are de
veloping some interesting facts in their
history. Commander Boot reports that
there were 129,837 members at the end
of the last year, a net gain of 41.356.
The membership of all jurisdictions was
as follows: Sovereign, 129,837: Pacific,
58,043; Canadian, 0,129; Woodmen of
Woodcraft 18,975; Woodmen Circle. 12,
813; total membership of perfected wood
craft, 225,797. The commander spoke in
flattering terms of the progress of the
order and discussed the matter of enter
ing Mexico. He recommended that the
sovereign camp invest $2,500 in the
Omaha Auditorium company. The death
claims paid during 1900 were 31,600,338.
The place of the United States as the
greatest exporting nation on the globe
is now firmly established. For the nine
months ending with March last the aver
age monthly exportation from this
country were valued at $124,497,853,
while those of Great Britain and Ireland
were $117,816,246 per month during the
same period; those of Germany, the next
largest exporter, were $87,551,000 per
month during the twelve months ending
with December, J900; those of France,
$56,467,000 per month; Bussia, $29,550,000
per month; British India, $26,747,000 per
month; Austria-Hungary, $25,753,255
per month; Belgium, $23,568,000 per
month, and Italy, $20,518,000 per month.
The total domestic exports of the United
States in the nine months ending with
March were $1,120,480,675, while the Bi
portation of British and Irish produce in
the same period amounted to $1,060,
346,214, showing the exports of the
United States to be sixty million dollars
greater than those of the United King
dom during the same term. Chicago
The following comes as a news item
from Lincoln: "State Superintendent
of Schools Fowler, acting on a case sub
mitted to him from Tobias, has taken
the position that the school district is
entitled to the whole of occupation taxes
as well as license fees, and that the for
mer cannot legally be diverted to th
use of. the village or municipality. In
the case in question a license fee of $500
is levied on saloon keepers and in adni
tion an occupation tax of $600, the latter
being turned into the city and the former
into the school treasury. Mr. Fowler
holds that the school district is entitled
to the entire $1,000, and bases bis posi
tion on section 5, article 8, of the state
constitution and on three deoisions of
the supreme court of the state." It is
safe to say that the subject will form an
interesting topic of discussion by mem
bers of boards of education and tv
councils throughout the state. What
ever comes, let the law be ascertained,
and then carried out impartially. It a
portion of the fund intended for the
education of Nebraska youth has been
diverted into a different channel, let the
proper officials take action at once.

Death of George W. Hulrt.
At ten minutes to 8 o'clock Tuesday
evening of last week, occurred the death
of George W. Hulst, in this city, at the
home of Dr. O. T. Martyn.
For some three years he had been
ailing, a post-mortem showing tubercu
losis of the liver. In earlier life he had
been troubled with hemorrhage of the
lungs, but nothing of this was noticeable
in the autopsy.
All day Tuesday he lay in a comatose
state; the last three or four days prior
to this he suffered none, but knew all his
friends, who had had, for some time, no
hope of his recovery.
On the 26th of last December he had
endeavored to regain health at Phoenix,
Arizona, bnt returned about the first of
April, and had been steadily failing ever
Funeral service was held at 10 o'clock
Friday morning, Rev. Weed of Grace
Episcopal church conducting it. The
pall bearers were D. Sohupbacb, George
A. Hoagland of Omaha, J. . North, Carl
Kramer, Gus G. Becber and A. M. Post
The choir of Grace church furnished
music for the services.
The funeral was attended by a large
number of sorrowing friends, those from
abroad being: Nelson P. Hulst brother
of the deceased, and wife, of Milwaukee;
the aged mother, Mrs. Nancy Hulst of
Omaha; Mrs. S. W.Chase and Mrs. S. D.
Mercer, the latter accompanied by her
husband, Dr. Mercer, son and daughter;
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Carter of Omaha;
Mrs. Sidney Cullinghamof Omaha; Mrs.
M. A. Phillips of Duluth; Edward L.
Merritt of Springfield, 111.
Mr. Hulst leaves his widow, his two
sons Garrett of thia city and George of
Omaha. A younger son, Nelson, died in
George W. Hulst waa born in Brook
lyn, Di. 1., June 24, 1810, removing to
Alexandria, Va when a lad and while
there his father died. He then came to
Omaha, engaging in the grocery busi
ness. From there in 1869 he came to
Columbus, engaging with Abner Turner
in the lumber and afterward banking
business, later consolidating withGer-
rard k Beed in the Columbus State
In 1872, he was married to Mrs. Lucy
Latham, at the residence of her father,
Mr. George at Clarke. It waa at the
residence of her son, H. L Ttham at
Phoenix, Arizona, where Mr. and Mrs.
Hulst sojourned last winter.
In 1885 and at different times until in
1891, Mr. Hulst had been engaged in
business with Messrs. Turner & Price in
the Black Hills, St Edward, Albion,
Cedar Bapids, Follerton, Schuyler,
Deadwood, Lead City, Hot Springs,
Edgemont, Hills City, Custer, having
two sawmills in the mountains at Green
wood and Keystone.
Mr. Hulst waa singularly unobtrusive
with reference to his own personal mat
ters, even desiring that the casket at the
funeral be olosed from view.
He desired to live peaceably with all
men; was averse to strife, and was a
noble hearted man in all the relations of
life. He loved his friends and nothing
could have swayed him from loyalty to
them. His constant thought waa of bow
he might benefit others. The memory
of hia gentle, kindly spirit will always be
cherished by hia friends. '
Death af Clark Caeaey. -
Clark Cooncy.one of the early pioneer
settlers of Platte county, died at hie
home about seven miles west of Genoa,
Friday, May 10, after aa illness of two
years' duration. Mr. Cooncy waa a vet
eran of the civil war and. had for a num
ber of years been on the pension roll
Immediately after the close of the war,
in 1865, he came to Platte county and
settled on the farm now owned by B. W.
Gentleman, a short distance southeast of
where Platte Center now stands. About
twenty years ago he sold this farm and
moved to Nance county where he has
since been engaged in farming and atock
raising. The remains were brought here
Sunday where services were held in St
Joseph's church and the body interred
in the Catholic cemetery. He leaves a
wife and eight children. He waa 59
years of age. Mrs. Cooncy is a sister of
our townsman, Patrick Hayes. Platte
The Fulisrton Post speaks of Mr.
Cooncy aa one of the early settlers in
that section, and that after a long illness,
he died of dropsy. He enjoyed the con
fidence and esteem of all who knew him.
Many of the older readers of Thx
Journal will remember Mr. Cooncy's aa
a familiar name in the local columns of
this paper in the early 70's. Prominent
as a farmer, aa a atock raiser, aa a man
of affairs in the community and county,
he took an active and lively interest in
all that concerned the public welfare aa
well as his own, and a host of Platte
county friends were sorry to see him
change his residence, even only to
Mr. Cooncy had many excellent, and
some notable traits of character. He
was open-hearted, generous, candid and
fair. The Golden Rule was not a dead
letter but a living principle with him,
and the world was better by his having
lived in it.
