AS TO BARTLEY.
There are all kinds of opinions as to
the action of Gov. Savage in granting a
parole for a limited time to Joe Bartley,
a former state treasurer, but the action
fVn by the republican convention,
which met last Wednesday, was certain
ly definite enough.
The following resolution was passed:
The republicans of Nebraska disclaim
for the party any sympathy with custo
dians of public moneys found guilty of
the betrayal of sacred trusts. Without
impugning the motives of the governor
in any case, we deprecate any exercise
of executive clemency tending to create
the false impression that the republican
party is disposed to condone the wilful
embezzlement of public funds under any
circumstances and we request the imme
diate recall of the parole of Joseph
In a few hours afterwards, by order
of Gov. Savage, Mr. Bartley was again
in the'penitentiary, serving time.
It seems to have been generally con
ceded, ap to date, that the profitable
hog could only be produced in the corn
growing sections of the country, but
now there is more than the disposition
to dispute that point there is a determi
nation on the part of the producers of
barley and wheat to contest the supre
macy of the corn belt, even if a different
kind of hog shall be found necessary to
enter the lists. There is no doubt but
.the steer and the hog are essential ele
ments in the wealth of the corn belt,
helping amazingly to solve the problem
of converting the grain into money, at
the least outlay. The general principle
is evidently worthy of application in
other regions, but they will do well, per
haps, to ponder over the problem before
they actually enter the lists of producing
the model corn belt's hog of today.
From being a long-legged, raw-boned
rooter who fifty years ago walked hun
dreds of miles through mud and slush to
the Philadelphia and Baltimore markets,
he has come up to be a full-bodied,
portly, short-legged creature, who must
be hauled to market, after a life kept as
free as possible at all times, from the
ordinary ills, so that he may be in posi
tion to lift the mortgage. His achieve
ments have been so marvelous in the
world of business that there is little
wonder other belts are seeking an adapt
able modification of his good qualities
to further their purposes.
The June number of the Review of
Beviews has an intensely interesting
article by Sylvester Baxter, entitled
"The Winning War Against Consump
tion." which it might be well for every
thoughtful person to read. Some idea
of the article may be gathered from these
sentences, which we quote: "Of all dis
eases, man's greatest enemy is consump
tion. It causes one-seventh of all deaths.
The best medical authorities tell us that
one-sixth of the human race is tuber
culous". . .Cures effected in home cli
mates have been more lasting and more
assured than those obtained in more
genial climates away from home. Val
uable results are reported from systems
of cure that call for light and air for the
entire body... Altogether, pure air in
abundance lies at the foundation of all
rational treatments. Few chronic mal
adies are more easily curable. If the
statements of Mr. Baxter are to be taken
as true (and they certainly seem so to
the casual reader), the conclusions are
very encouraging to all who are afflicted
with lung troubles, or to those who have
a touch of consumption, for he says : "It
is now definitely established that con
sumption is a curable disease. Taken in
time, and dealt with in its incipient
stages, recovery is practically assured."
Journal readers will find profit in
obtaining the magazine and giving this
article a thoughtful study.
Gov. Shaw of Iowa has added to his
already good fame by his speech Tues
day evening of last week at Lincoln. He
is much talked of as a possible candidate
for president at the next contest A
man of recognized great ability, his pub
lie utterances receive close attention.
In discussing the needs of American
labor he sets the facts in strong light
In fifty years our agricultural products
have multiplied by four, while our man
ufactures have multiplied by eleven.
The demand for new markets now is but
a whisper compared to the cry of coming
years. The best that can be done is to
open the ways and broaden the channel
of trade. Reclaim waste lands, eoooar
age a merchant marine, coastruot an

in the ports of Europe, aad an open door

Tuesday afternoon of last week just as
The Journal was going to press the
republican county convention had begun
their session, having been called to order
by J. D. Stires, chairman of the county
central committee the past year.
In his speech to the delegates, he
referred to the successes of the party in
the last campaign; to the general, good
business conditions under republican
administration; to the change of the
world's financial center from London to
New York; to the preservation of the
Fourth of July, notwithstanding the
Bryan crossings to the contrary.
Henry Bagatz was chosen temporary
chairman, and excused himself from
making a speech by saying that he had
not even a hint of being called upon.
He took occasion to say that he was glad
to see so goodly a representation of
ardent republicans and especially so
large a proportion of the younger repub
lieaas, on whom mast devolve the future
battles of the party.
Frank T. Walker was selected as tem
porary secretary, aad oa motion a com
mittee on credentials was appointed,
oonsiatiagof Stirea of Columbus, Frank
of Monroe aad Clark of Humphrey.
While the committee were engaged
awkng up the accredited list of the del
egates, a J. Garlow was called upoa for
a speech to occupy the time. Among
other things be said that there was a
considerable tendency amoag Platte
county people to vote for mea of good
judgment and sound sense irrespective
of their party politics. We sll know
what a struggle we have in this county,
but when we select extra good men for
nomination, we have the support of a
good many democrats. After our candi
dates are named, then each of us should
see that we and our neighbors do oar
best for the ticket He said it wasn't
necessary for him toppeakof the general
affairs of the country they knew them
as well as he did, and, in conclusion be
expressed the hope that when the con
vention is over every one will work for
the best interests of the party, and in
unison for the election of the nominees.
The committee on credentials reported
all townships represented except Loup,
Woodville and. Walker. Albert Swan

A special to the" Lincoln Journal,
from Osceola, under d ite of the 29th
says: "At the early hour of 9 o'clock
this morning all persons that were for
tunate enough to have cards of invitation
could be seen wending their way to the
beautiful home of Senator and Mrs. M.
A. Mills, on Gospel Ridge for the pur
pose of witnessing the marriage of their
daughter. Miss Blanche to William J.
Rickly. There was a large concourse of
Osceola's prettiest and best The im
pressive ceremony (the ring service) of
the Presbyterian church was performed
by Rev. Knox Roude, the pastor of the'
First Presbyterian church. Miss Delia
Powers was maid of honor and the
bridesmaids were Miss Rickly, sister of

Friday evening about 7 o'clock in the
Union Pacific yards near the coal chute
a lad about 1G years old, name not
known, but supposed to be from Chica
go and working his way west was killed.
It was an extra freight train, and the
last seen of him alive by his companion,
he was standing on the bumpers of two
cars, from which he was probably jostled
to the track where he was horribly
mangled, doubtless dying instantly.
The skull was crushed, so that there was
no bone larger than three inches square.
The brain was found on the ground as'
though thrown entire out of a bowl.
Both arms were broken, the right arm
hanging by the skin only.
Coroner Metz was in the city Satur
day, but did not deem it neoessary to
hold a formal inquest There was no
clue as to who he was. In his pockets
were found a time card of the Chicago,
Milwaukee road, tobacco and a corncob
pipe. He wore a brown felt hat, blue
coat, blue and white striped shirt, blue
overalls and blue socks. On the left leg
between the ankle and knee there was a
large dark spot probably the effect of a
burn. He had gray eyes, light brown
hair, thick lips, small thick nose, and a
(nil set of teeth. He was five feet three
inches tall and weighed one hundred
and ten pounds.
Albert Lambert, a young man of 17,
who had ridden from Schuyler on the
same train, making his first trip in this
way, said the boy had told him he was
from Chicago, but had not given him
his name. Lambert was so shaken up
that be purposed walking home.
From the place of accident the body
was taken to Gass' undertaking rooms,
where it was prepared for burial, which
took place Saturday afternoon at 4:30.
Pawiee mi's Wild Wait
Coming September 13. The big Wild
West Show is going to visit us with its
hundreds of men and horses. The exhi
bition will be a thrilling one, calculated
to stir the blood of even frontier men,
and will consist of reproductions of dar
ing deeds of the far west together with
novelties of a high order. Indians, Cos
sacks, Arabs, Cowboys, Japanese, Mexi
cans, Gauehos, Daring Lady Equestrians
in heroic pastimes, on foot and in the
saddle. Champion rifle and pistol shots,
adepts with the bow and arrow, the spear
and bolus, and as a special feature those
strange people, the Bushmen from Aus
tralia. A word about them may not be
amiss: The Australian Boomerang
throwers and Black Traokers are the
lowest order of the human family a
people that have no fixed abode or mar
riage ceremony, do not bury their dead
or till the soil, wear little or no clothing,
just one step above the animal kingdom,
but possessed of a secret power of con
trolling the missile of primitive man,
known as the "Come Back" Boomerang,
universally regarded as the most pecu
lisr snd wierd weapon in existenoe for
the wonderful skill exhibited in its inven
tion and construction, the origin of its
shape and diversity of distribution," its
remarkable power of returning to the
thrower when it has achieved its course,
after performing extraordinary evolu
tions and its survival to the present ay.

The first white man to set foot on
Utah soil, Futher Silveatre Yelez de
Escalante, who reached tho GREAT
SALT LAKE on the 23rd day of Sept.,
1776, wrote in his diary: "Here the
climate is so delicious, the air bo balmy,
that it is a pleasure to breathe by day
and by night." The climate of Utah is
one of the richest endowment of nature.
On the shores of the Great Salt Lake
especially and for fifty miles therefrom
in every direction the climate of cli
