All honor to Brother Babcock. All those wiahiag fat positions, such - as president or treasurer of the various railroad companies, also passes when the governmeat shall own all the rail roads, had better file their applications with either Mike Harrington or fid gar Howard, for they are the presi dent and secretary of the government ownership league. Hitchcock of the World-Herald will then have to walk or pay his fare, for he is bucking gov- arnment ownership of railroads. -Once more the Omaha papers report that the Columbus power canal has beoa financed and work will begin in the spring. There are a good many doubting Thomases here, but we are among those who believe the power canal is bound to come. We have great faith in the future of Columbus. Most of our people do not realize what it woald mean to Columbus to have the millions spent right here for labor in constructing the canal, even if most of the power raised from this canal was transferred to Omaha and other points. If Joe Bailey was a republican and a United States senator from a north ern state, instead of being a democrat and a senator from the state of Texas, there would be no question as to his re-electton. He would simply be down and out yes, more than that. Public sentiment would be such that he would not dare to be a candidate for re-elec tion, and if he was not confined in some prison, he would surely be on the road to it Compared to Senator Bai ley's .ofense, Senator Burton of the state of Kimws committed the small est act of petit larceny. In the south a maa is all right if he is a democrat, and he is a democrat if he is right on the "nigger" question. He can be a free-trader, a protectionist, a free sil ver maa,a Standard Oil man, or any thing else, if he is only a democrat This same spirit has been in evi dence ia Platte county, to the detri ment of our community. Some years ago the republicans of this' district were fortanate enough to have on their ticket as a candidate for state senator a maa who was not only one of our earliest settlers, but he was also a man of the highest integrity, thoroughly qualified for the position, respected -aad honored by all who knew him, and . he was known all over the state. Had he been elected he would have made a most useful, coascieatious aad leading member of our state senate. Opposed to him oa the democratic ticket was a maa, a comparative stranger in this community. He did not have a dol lar's worth of property in this county, he had ao ability for the office, not a particle of experience, but he was ' elected and by a majority of over seven r handred votes, just because he was on the democratic ticket He went to Lincoln aad seemed to forget that he was leprsseating this district He did not evea return at the close of the ses sion, but he was on the democratic ticket, aad that ia Platte and Colfax county is enough to elect anyone.

How far manufacture can be localized, even if not yet practical at small farm sills, can only be deter mined experimentally, but particular pains have been taken so to draft the rules as, while protecting revenue, to favor distilleries at the smaller towns, near the source of raw mateaials. But manufacture of this as of other articles, is likely to be determined by general industrial forces. The chief public interest in which farmers, both as con sumers of denatured alcohol and as producers of the raw materials for it especially share, is that this new sub stitute for agents of light, heat and power already monopolized, shall not itself fall under control of monopoliz ing combinations and trusts. Such a result, if it should happen, would in fallibly and swiftly cause the same irresistible demand for relaxed rev enue regulations as has just caused tax exemption of denatured alcohol. And in any event the government upon its own motion may be expected to mod ify them as rapidly as practical expe rience in administering' the systom shows it to be safe from the revenue point of vi iw.

Booth, to whom Henry E. Abbey would cheerfully have paid $1,000 a night for ISO consecutive nights, was one of the most unhappy men on the face of God's earth. He had buried two wives, been through the mortifica tion of bankruptcy and so far as world ly wealth is concerned, so far as the comforts of, a settled home go, had yet to make the one and secure the other. This being the case, what do you sup pose is the fate of minor people? The fact is that they work hard, are under paid, never play the parts they prefer, pay much, by far the greater portion of their salaries, for stage costumes, in variably have a gang of hangers on who vat the bread they earn, are out of engagements most of the time and ninety times out of a hundred die so poor that they are buried at the ex pense of their fellows. In the first place, it Is extremely difficult for them to obtain a position, and, having a position, how few its advantages. They have to rehearse at inconvenient times; they go out in ail kinds of weather regardless of their health or comforts or home desires; they dress in outlandish places, either wet, damp and chilly or overheated. They are at the capricious mercy of speculative" managers, and, having found by ex perience that there Is very little sym pathy for them, either before or behind the footlights, they wrap themselves In a garment of mental Indifference to appearances, which Is utterly misun derstood by a cynical and suspicious world. 'I know of a girl who was called to a Sunday night rehearsal. Her father was very ill, but the rental of their rooms, the fees for the doctor and mon ey for the drugs depended upon her at tending to her business. It was imper ative that she should be in the theater at 730 o'clock. Having arranged the room as women only can, having placed upon the table by the bedside of her father his medicine, she kissed him goodby and, with a loving touch, prom ised to be back as .early as possible. You know what Sunday night rehears als mean: They, mean I, 2, 3, 4 o'clock the next day. That is what this one meant. The girl hastened home.
