Mr.Bbtax doesn't like Grover Cleve
land and that is very evident.
Western iron mills have served notice
that they will only accept orders for rails
to be delivered in the last quarter of
1908. Prosperity in that line seems like
it might continue indefinitely.
Ibbespective of the ending of the
anthracite coal strike, the search for a
way to produce heat without coal should
go on unabated. The inventor who frees
humanity from subjection to the coal
baron will be hailed as a liberator. Bee.
Nebraska land has increased 25 per
cent in valuo in the past five years.
Does not that indicate a pretty healthy
condition of affairs? Will history pro
duce anything approaching such results
dariBg a democratic regime? It is not
there. Moral Let well enough alone.
A fabmeb by the name of Chris Bell,
living near Plattsmouth, this state, has
a cariosity at his place in the form of a
patch of blackberry which is producing
the second crop this year. He also has
some cherry trees which are budding
and the prospects are that they will
bloom again before cold weather sets in.
Surely Nebraska b very prolific this year
in raising all kinds of crops.
So fab, the only people in the state
who express dissatisfaction over the
nomination of J. H. Mickey are demo
cratic orators. The populists, who know
the nomination of Thompson sounded
the death knell of their party, are not
denouncing Mickey, neither are they
praising Thompson, and when they go to
the polls next November they are more
likely to vote for Mickey than they are
for Thompson. North Platte Tribune.
The recent triumphant cry of the dem
ocrat that the monopolies had taken
President Roosevelt in hand has died to
a whisper einceahis recent action on the
coal strike situation. By his course the
president has proved conclusively that
he is owned by no single interest and is
the true champion of the entire people.
He is a worthy leader, and has been
called upon within a year to face more
peculiar and grave situations than any
president with the exception of Lincoln.
He baa met them welL
Ix the last session of congress it was
proposed to adopt an amendment to the
constitation giving that body power to
deal with the trusts but it was rejected
by democratic votes, among which was
that of Congressman Robinson. Be
cause it was a republican proposition
was euScient to get for it the opposition
of the democrats, and yet members of
this party are now going about the coun
try telling what they would do to the
i if given an opportunity. It is sp
it that what they want more than
anything is the offices, and the salaries
attached. Norfolk News.
Edoab Howard, the erudite demo
cratic editor of Columbus, is developing
a spirit of humor that rivals Bill Nye.
He printed a burning editorial in which
the election of a democratic house and
there-election of Congressman Robinson
are sens wind both effervescent pipe
dreams and then brought the joke to a
climax- by proposing Robinson for
eppetrr of the next house. Think of
John S. Robinson standing in the shoes

WHO SAYS CHANGE t
The value of republican policies and
republican control is unanswerably evi
denced by the following figures of the
total deposits in our banking institu
tions of all kinds and loan and trust
companies, as shown by the treasury
bureau of statistics on June 30 of each
1806 ft 4,088.089.119
Not yet available
Bv these furores we see that tne re
publican year 1901 finds us with twice as
much money saved up as we had in the
democratic year 1896, and $447,000,000
more. On the basis of 80,000,000 popu
lation, that is equal to a gain of nearly
$56 for each man, woman and child in
the country. Who says change?
Or, to put it another way:
Gain is four democratic years
with which contrast
Gain in four republican years! 3.33805,608
Deduct four years' democratic gain 56857,374
Exceaa of republican gain . ... ft 2,771,818.232
or, in other words, four years of republi
canism is as good to the country as four
years of democracy, and over $2,770,000,
000 (not the Kansas City platform kind)
To emphasize four years' gain under
republican rule is equal to more than
twenty-five years' possible gain under
democratic rule. New York Sun.
Trading Off Their Ticket.
While manifesting buoyant preten
sions and while boastfully claiming
success for the state ticket, the fit
sionlsts admit their insincerity by the
endeavor to trade off Thompson and
the entire state ticket for votes for
their congressional candidates. Re
publicans have been approached dur
ing the last week by f uslonists in the
Third and Fourth congressional dis
tricts and offered votes for the Repub
lican ticket In return for Republican
Totes for fusion congressmen. The
fact seems to have dawned upon them
that their state ticket Is already hope
lessly beaten, with every indication
that every Republican nominee for
congress will be elected, and they
have concluded that they can afford
to submit to the embarrassment of a
large Republican majority on the state
ticket if they can only fool the Repub
licans Into voting for their con
gressional nominees. Republicans who
were approached saw at once the
motive and spurned the offer. That
Nebraska will go Republican on the
state ticket by from 12,000 up Is reason
ably certain and It Is almost as certain
that Nebraska will contribute her mite
towards keeping the nation prosperous
by electing a solid Republican delega
tion to congress.
To appreciate the improvements
that have been made in connection
with the state institutions during the
last two years, one has only to make
an Ideal comparison between buildings
that are clean kept and well repaired
and those that are unsanitary and bad
ly dilapidated. Very little of the
money appropriated for the care and
maintenance of public buildings was
expended in that way by the last fu
sion administration. The money was
taken out of the treasury, but where
It went to no one appears to know.
The buildings were In the worst condi
tion imaginable. In nearly every
state institution plastering was off, the
interior wood work was coated with
filth, the furniture and bedding was
all but ruined. The spectacle, to say
the least, was pitiable. It is difficult
to believe that public servants would
so far forget their duty as to permit
of such a wreckage and destruction of
The Republicans on assuming
charge proceeded at once to repair
the damage. Of the amount of money
expended for maintaining the Institu
tions no small sum was for repairs
and furniture. Had not this been
done, so complete was the wreck, that
a delay would have entailed a much
larger expense, as the buildings were
going to wreck at an alarming pace.
Even with this extraordinary expend
iture, the Republicans have so man
aged the Institutions as to maintain
them for $189,000 less than the legis
lature estimated It would cost and
$280,000 less than the fusion admin
istration estimated and asked the leg
islature to appropriate.
True tg Protective Principle.
Senator J. P. Dolliver of Iewa dis
cussed the practical aspects of the
political campaign at Chicago. Oct. 2.
with the delegates to the thirteenth
annual convention of the National Re
publican League and a large number
f their friends as an audience. The
eloquence and wit of the speaker were
directed to an exposition of what he
was pleased to call the "Iowa idea,"
but which he declared was a "Repub
lican idea" that would in time be
recognized as "the American idea."
Senator Dolliver took the position of
an optimist. He was not alarmed
over the trust problem. The law of
competition eventually would be the
doom of the trusts, and the protective
principle would continue to advance
the interests of the nation as it had
done in the past. Mr. Dolliver be
lieved that within a few years every
trust or industrial combination not le
gitimately capitalised and managed on
the soundest economic principles
would pass away.
The Seward Blade has the following
comment on Bryan's speech, which was
in substance the same as delivered in
Columbus last Wednesday: "W. J.
Bryan has come and gone and the sun
still shines this morning. An audience
of five or six hundred heard him speak at
the opera house yesterday afternoon, a
large part of which was composed of
ladies. He offered no new arguments;
he offered no remedy for the imagined
evils that beset the people in these pros
perous times; he sang the same old
calamity songs we know so well, and was
not manly enough to father his own pre
dictions made in 96 and since. For the
benefit of those who did not hear him,
we print in our supplement todsy some
of his prophecies made in former
speeches, and although he msy deny
them, those who have a copy of his
"First Battle," (and there are many of
them in Seward county) can look up the
prophecies and see that he is correctly
quoted. The meeting was disappointing;
the "Peerless" has lost his drawing
power, and it is doubtful whether his
coming was a benefit or a detriment to
the cause he represents."
The Falls City Journal expresses the
opinion that the action of the state
liaaor dealers1 association can have bat
lone effect snd that is to make Nebraska

A Colomboa Lady Writes
imglj of Her Eastern Visit.
Suanksville, Pa., Oct. 18, 1902.
Hy trip to the east has been a very
interesting one. Thirty years have pass
ed since I left my native home in the
glades on the western slope of the Alle
gheny mountains. This is the eastern
limits of the vast bituminous coal region
.of which so much is said just now.
Snanksville, a small village within five
miles of the summit of the mountains, is
where I was born and where I spent the
first five or six years of my childhood
life. This town was settled 104 years
ago by my great-great-grandfather. The
remains of the old pine tree under which
my great-great-grandfather Shank un
loaded his household goods are still vis
ible, viz., a few of the old roots are still
there. Of course many changes have
taken place since that time. The graves
of the old pioneers are grown over with
moss and grass. These heroic men and
1 women migrated to this wilderness and
endured all the hardships incident to
that day and life, and through their
labors and tribulations they have trans
mitted to us all the comforts and con
veniences of a high civilization. Books
were few and costly, ignorance the rule,
and authors famed the world over now
were then unborn; now we spend annu
ally one hundred and forty million dol
lars for schools. Shanksville is not as
yet favored with many advantages, such
as railroads, trolley cars, or telegraph.
It has a telephone line that certainly is
a great convenience, though social cus
toms are somewhat old styled. Such as
it was many years ago friends and neigh
bors met together and enjoyed them
selves and entered into the spirit of
social amusement with a hearty good
will, a geniality of manners, a corres
ponding depth of soul, both among the
old and young. Guests didn't assemble
to criticise the decorations, furniture,
dress, manners and surroundings of
those by whom they were invited. Here
is the place to find old time dinners, etc.;
these Pennsylvania women know how to
prepare the necessaries of life, and we
western people know how to deal with
the good things thus prepared. It would
do you Nebraskaites all good to take a
trip east and gain two pounds per week.
Say, what think ye? Those grand old
hills have something very charming
I was pleased to spend a few days in
the old historic "smoky city," Pittsburg.
This is becoming a great iron center; for
miles and miles up along the Mononga
hela river and up the Allegheny immense
manufacturing plants are running day
and night. The capital invested in man
ufactories is estimated at $150,401,481;
the number of firms engaged at 1,500;
the number of workmen at 100,936; the
wholesale grocery trade is estimated at
$30,000,000; the wholesale dry goods
trade at 315,000,000. The public parks
are fine and delightful to behold. From
here I went up the Allegheny river about
100 miles to where the Redbank empties
into the river; thence up the Redbank,
or rather the low grade division of the
Allegheny Valley railroad to Brookville,
the county seat of Jefferson county. Pa.
This is an attractive and progressive
town, with a population of 3,000. It is
beautifully situated, like Rome, on seven
hills and is divided into several-parts by
three creeks, viz., the North Fork and
the Sandylick, which join and form the
Redbank. The lover of nature as well
as one who seeks the conveniences of a
populous and healthful community, finds
Brookville the proper site of a wide
awake and prosperous public school. It
has, passing directly through it from east
to west, the Allegheny Valley railroad,
which renders access easy to every part
of the state. The seemingly inexhausti
ble supply of natural gas and coal fur
nishes cheap fuel. The water supply is
very abundant and is of good, pure qual
ity. The most important manufactories
of the town are three large planing mills,
one large glass plant, two woolen mills,
one fnrnitnre factory, one large saw-mill
which cuts 130 thousand feet of lumber
every twenty-four hours, one large wagon
factory, one machine shop, two foundrys,
four flour mills. The town contains
many beautiful residences. The streets
are wide and lined with shade trees,
which add much to their beauty; three
of the main streets are paved with vitri
fied brick. There are eight churches,
the doors of which are open every Sab
bath and at various times through the
week, offering an opportunity for relig
ious growth. Brookville contains a num
ber of able ministers, attorneys, doctors
and many other men of more than ordi
nary intelligence who take a great inter
est in the progress of public affairs.
An accident occurred to Harry while

very much, but the time has come when
I must say good by. I expect to be at

The Old Veteran.
E. H. Jenkins of this city writes from
Washington, D. C, under date of Oct. 10,
giving an account of the old soldiers'
parade during O. A. R. week:
"On Wednesday was the grand review
of the different divisions of the G. A. R.
or the big parade, and they tell me that
it was the largest and most important of
any ever held here except when "Billy"
Sherman made the memorable parade of
his victorious army in this city at the
close of the war of the Rebellion. I
think it was important because it was
the last one the G. A. R. will ever hold,
as very many of the members are against
more parades for the reason that it is too
much for many of the older members;
while many of them are able to walk a
mile and a half or more, in order to move
such a large body of men the time
required to get them together and over
the route runs into many hours, and on
a warm day is very tiresome to many of
the old "vets" who do a good deal of
cussing each year they have dress parade.
The route of the parade was from the
U. S. cspitol to a point just west of the
White House, or a little more than a
mile and a half. Wire cables hsd been
strung early in the morning and at stated
intervals policemen were stationed to
keep people from crawling under the
ropes I should ssy about 75 feet apart
and with the help of the cables they
managed to keep the great number back. I
Shortly after 10 the head of parade start-1
ed up the svenae headed by a drnm
corps composed of old soldiers, among i
them being one old "vet" who was una
ble to walk and was pushed up the street
in a tricycle with a small flag flying on
either side, which I thought as good as
anything I saw in the whole procession,
and he certainly was a good player.
The post of honor was given to the
Illinois Division, and they had a large
number of uniformed men in line with
good bands from many different towns
of their great state, especially noticeable
among the different posts was two or
three from Chicago and one from Spring
Next in line came the hosts of men
from Pennsylvania, in point of numbers
outdoing any other state by far, they
having at least fifty bands at the head of
different posts, some of the musical
organizations having 36 men in brass,
and the -drum corps heading some posts
had as high as 24 pieces, which made the
echoes numerous between the high
buildings on the avenue. Would like to
have had some of the members of Csmp
No. 124 with us on the avenue to have
seen the grand sight aud heard many of
the best bands of the country play for
the old boys to keep time to.
Next to Pennsylvania in numbers and
in good appearance came New York,
they having the best appearing lot of
men and the most good bands; but the
western state to make the best showing
was Kansas, although Iowa hsd a goodly
number and they seemed to be very
enthusiastic. Taken altogether it was
fine, taking five and one-half hours to
pass a given point, and not a fewwere
obliged to be taken to the hospital dur
ing the day. I saw the red cross wagons
pass our reviewing stand no less than a
dozen times, but as the government had
a good many hospitals erected with a
number of attendants, I have no doubt
they were well taken care of. It is now
Friday night about 9 and the bombs at
the fire works are being sent up at the
rate of at least fifteen per minute, this
to close the day's doings.
Death of J. 0. Shannon.
Joseph O. Shannon, the subject of this
sketch, an old time Columbus resident,
and father of O. C. Shannon of this city,
died in the hospital at Independence,
Iowa, last Thursday, where he had been
taken from the soldiers' home in Mar
shslltown, Iowa, last May. He had
suffered for some time from wounds re
ceived in the army, but not until last
May did they give him serious trouble.
Mr. Shannon was 74 years old. He
was born in Kentucky, but grew to man
hood in Ohio, later going to Iowa and
about 1868 coming to Columbus where
he lived for many years. In 1882 he
moved to Plattsmouth where his wife
still lives with her daughters. In 1895
he went to Iowa, there to make his home
with the comrades he had fought with.
The following from the Marshalltown,
Iowa, Times-Republican, gives an idea
of his army life:
"Capt. Shannon was one of the best
known members of the Home and had
been in the institution since Nov. 16,
1895, coming from Oklahoma. He had
an excellent war record, and served
practically throughout the entire strug
gle. He was one of the three months
men in 1861 and served through the
time of his enlistment, only to return
homo and recruit Company E, of , the
Fourteenth Iowa, of which he was made
captain. He was wounded at the first
day's engagement at Sbiioh, on April 6,
1862, and was one of the number of Gen
eral Prentiss' division captured by the
confederates. After being exchanged he
was unfit for army service on account of
his wound, and later resigned his com
mission, tie recovered berore many
months and enlisted again, this time in
May, 1864, as a private in the Ninth Iowa
cavalry. He was discharged on June 12,
1865, with the rank of captain, at Little
Captain Shannon ib spoken of by men
who served under him as one of the
most considerate and thoughtful of
officers. Many times, whon on long
marches, and when rations became short
his men testify that he spent nearly all
his salary for food, which he distributed
equally among the members of his com
pany, in order that they might not go
While in the service he received three
serious wounds, was captured and im
prisoned nine months in Andersonville
prison and five months in other prisons
in the south.
Mr. Shannon possessed more than
ordinary ability and during his residence
in Columbus he was prominent in polit
ical affairs, holding the office of county
superintendent in 1870-71. He also held
the offices of justice and of constable
at different times.
His children were anxious to care for
him in later years, but he preferred liv
ing in Marshalltown, where a beautiful
home is given the soldiers who fought
for their country.
The remains were taken to Marshall
town where funeral services were held in
the chapel of the Soldiers' home Satur
day, and interment made in the Home
cemetery, as had been the. request of
Mr. Shannon leaves his wife, two
daughters, Mrs. Virgie McVicker and
Mrs. Leesley all of Plattsmouth, and O.
C. Shannon of Columbus.
A Card to Voters.
I wish to say to the voters of Platte
and Nance counties, that I have known
Mr. G. A. Scott, the republican candidate
for representative, since 1883. I have
always found him one of the coolest-
headed, most conscientious men in deal
ing with matters of importance I have
ever met He is also one of the kindest
of men to the poor and unfortunate.
On Thanksgiving and Christmas I have
known for several yean past of his send
ing presents of turkeys to many poor
people, which was sent without expecting
any reward. Mr. Scott has given me a
good home, has fed and clothed me for
over two years, and in that time I have
received the utmost care and kindness
from himself and family.

Washington, October 6th, 1902.
By satisfactory evidence pre

made to appear that "The First National Bank of

Wm. Schreiber of Bismark has sold
his farm and bought a half section in
this district, consisting of the n C of
section 3, range 17n le, and upon which
he will move tho liret of March next.
Glad to weicotno such men in our com

There is a place in the public highway
between sections 9 and 10, range 17n, le
and about SO rods in length which is
getting to be dreaded by tho traveling
public from herea!iout3. Wo allude to
the part traversed by tho waters of the
lowland canal. Whenever there is a
general shower, tho canal brings large
volumes of water down tho ditch and
overflows at the above, point, which
makes it almost impossible to haul o
loaded wngon through tlte mud and
water caused by said overilow, and we
do hope tho proper authorities will in
vestigate and find a remedy that will
relieve the traveling public.
Eat up a man's confidence. The
poorly dressed man is afraid to push

comfortable. He usually gets ready-to-wear
clothing. Sometimes it tits

gets worn and shaliby, and still be is
compelled to wear it. For about the
