Tillman and McLaurin, U. S. senators
of South Carolina, had a fiat fight in the
senate Saturday, in the afternoon near 3
o'clock. Tillman had said in debate
that he knew of the federal patronage of
a atate having been used, parceled out to
a senator since the ratification of the
Paris treaty. He averred that the state
as South Carolina, that McLaurin voted
for the treaty and that improper influ-
eaoes were brought to bear. Afterwards
McLaurin arose to a personal explana
tion, and with great heat declared that
Tillmsn's statement regarding him was
a "willful and deliberate and malicious
lie." Tillman jumped over chairs and
struck McLaurin in the face, and a
vicious encounter ensued. No serious
damage was done by either man, the
contestants were duly separated and
quiet restored. Just what action the
senate will take has not been fully de
cided upon, but it is supposed that the
unprecedented occurrence will evoke
very strong censure and full apology.
Miss Ellen Smith, who for nearly
twenty-five years has been with the Ne
braska atate university as instructor,
librarian and registrar, ceases her active
work with the institution at the close of
the present month, but will continue to
draw her salary and carry the title of
consulting registrar until the close of
the present college year. This was de
cided upon at the charter-day meeting of
the regents. Miss Smith desired an
advance in salary from $66 a month to
$75. Her request was couched in terms
that made the regents look apon it as a
resignation in case they could not vote
the increase. So says the Lincoln Jour
nal. "Maw" Smith's doings and sayings
are quoted on every hand where there
are students of the university, and, as
the Journal well remarks: "The alumni
and old students will hear of the action
with deep regret, for Miss Smith is so
closely assnciitwri with the university in
their minds that they cannot understand
why they should be separated."

imperial family of Germany. At 11:40,
tremendous cheering announced the

All the surplus corn is produced in
eight states of the Union. Argentine
and Hungary produce a little for export,
but the world at large depends apon
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas,
Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota for
its supply. No other statea grow an
appreciable surplus nor can the field be
extended. It is limited on the north by
temperature, on the west by altitude, on
the south and east by lack of fertility.
Upon the corn crib depends the supply
of beef, pork, mutton, wool, lard, cheese,
poultry and eggs to feed and clothe the
millions. The demand is rapidly increas
ing and prices will not soon be below the
price of production. Corn is used in the
manufacture of starch, glucose, whisky
and other articles of commeroa-rlowa
A statement prepared by the Treas
ury department shows that the debt of
the United States, which in 1865 was
$7R25 per capita, was in 1901 only $ia5
per capita, and that the annual interest
charge, which was $4.29 per capita in
1865, was 38 cento per capita in 1901. In
1865 the government was paying from 4
to 7 3-10 per cent interest on its indebt-'
ednees, while in 1901 half of the entire
debt drew only 2 per cent interest. It
may be remarked incidentally that these
results are due to republican finan
ciering and administration. Indianapo
It is inconceivable to The Journal
why it is that there is any talk at all in
favor of Governor Savage's nomination
for governor. It certainly is 'the drear
iest nonsense on the part of republicans.
If fusionists could force his nomination
by the republicans, they might think it
a good move for them to make, but what
any republican can find in the situation
to warrant the naming of Savage for
gubernatorial honors, we are unable to
see. The sooner the talk ceases, and the
republicans of the state get down to
business, the better for the party.
What good does the bank inspector
do as long as he cannot detect bank
ruptcy or fraud in a bank? Mosher's
bank and the Bellwood bank were both
run for years by fraud and were doubly
bankrupt all the time, and yet the in
spector .could see nothing wrong. The
tact that he reported the banks all right
and sound led many innocent depositors
into the trap. A guide-board that sends
the traveler the wrong road is much
worse than no guide at all. Nebraska
The Wiener Chronicle says that farm
ers of the vicinity of Fremont have been
swindled out of thousands of dollars
recently by two -clever swindlers who
represented themselves to be hunters
from Chicago. They offered five dollars
to various farmers for the privilege of
hunting on their places, requesting that
a receipt be signed after the money had
been paid. The receipts turned out to
be promissory notes for $500.
The recent ineffectual attempt of the
democratic editors to force the populist
party to disband will make co-operation
more difficult than ever. Those popu
lists who have favored co-operation will
necessarily become alarmed and be more
cautious than in the past. The move
ment was so inexcusable that it scarcely
seems credible that it was the work of
sane men. Madison Mail (ex-Senator

Every anecdote told of Cecil Rhodes
proves the greatness of the man. He
has met no obstacles which he could
not surmount, even to teaching British
sailors to pronounoe French so that a
Frenchman could understand It Fol
lowing is the stary of how he did it:
While on the way to England from the
Cape on a Castle Uner he was on deck
while passing Cherbourg, where sever
al vessels of the French channel squad
ron were drawn up In line to salute
the ex-Empress Bagenie's yacht. The
Frenchmen who were spread out 00
the yards of their vessel shouted
"Vive ImpeatrIee.,, The Castle lin
er's captain, wishing to show his re
spect to the ex-empress, got his men
ready to salute, but in the short time
at his disposal he could not school his
crew to repeat the French words.
"Tell them to say 'Beef, lemons and
cheese,'" suggested Rhodes, playfully.
and to his utter amazement the yacht
was greeted with .a deafening yell of
"beef, lemons and cheese," which en
tirely drowned the voice of the French
sailors. The ex-empress is stated to
have expressed great pleasure at the
compliment afterward. Brooklyn Ea
