FOUR TO ONE.
Iu 1904 the United States Census
issued a bulletin giving the number of
prisoners in the several states aud the
ratio to population. Nebraska in that
year had 519 prisoners in the peniten
tiary and county jails, which was 48.
persons per 100,000 of iopiiIatiou.
The same authority shows that Kan
sas had 2,87'J prisoners, or 19:J.!J to
every 100,000 of population. The
prohibition state of Maine had 4
prisoners, or 70 to the 1 00,000 of po
pulation. Certainly the license state
does not suffer a great deal in this
respect in comparison with conditions
in prohibition states. The ratio is bas
ed upon the census of 1900, which gave
Kansas 1,427,09(1, ami Nebraska,
1,058,910. If in the matter of crime
and prisoners, Nebraska iu that year
had descended to the low level upon
which we find Kansas, the jails of our
state would have contain '-d 2,14 pri
soners, whereas the actual number was
but .019. Four to one! The State.
HEALTH AND THE NATION.
Most public questions are really
simple. During discussion they often
become so obfuscated by people who
want them obfuscated that they seem
difficult. But that is only seeming.
Such, for instance, is the ea.e of the
proposal to establish a national agency
for promoting the health of the peo
ple. There is no way that funds, whe
ther of government or of private wea
lth, can be more profitably spent than
in promoting health. The scientific
knowledge of the world is just at the
point to be applied with maximum re
turns. The federal government can do
little directly. It cau do a vast work
indirectly. Much of the work it cau
do cannot be done by either states or
municipalities. The proof of what can
be done indirectly lies both in the
government's present scattered efforts
toward promoting health and in the
work of those other branches of the
federal government which were created
to organize aud apply the accumulating
store of scientific knowledge.
The friends of the movement to have
a special agency for health promotion
created at Washington are now argu
ing whether a health bureau or a heal
th department should be created.
They ought not to waste too much ef
fort on that. If they cannot all agree
on the major programme they ought
' all to agree on the minor aud make a
start. Chicago Uecord-H erald.
THEY HUSH EVERY! HINC. UP.
York editors, who are iu accord
with much of the plan of running
York as a purely moral city and who
keep all news out of the papers that
would tend to show the outside world
that theirs was anything but a btrictly
right and virtuous place, have balked
and enter a protest. The York editors
never whisper as to any "bootlegging"
going on by York citizens and if one
gets "booze" from some .source and im
bibes it it is suppressed. Any police
court news is forgotten and for the
sake of the reputation of the good peo
ple of York any crime like the one re
ferred to is suppressed and nothing
done for fear that publicity would
humiliate the .citizens and give the
city a bad name. But when the auth
orities proceed to shut out pool halls
and close up every place where jeople
can congregate in a social way and
leave open only churches and Y. M.
C. A. rooms, those editors call a halt
and enter a protest and while carefully
worded, their articles tell a story that
needs- no tinting by us. While the
people of York and vicinity may be
a class that prohibition and the cur
tailing of all personal lilerties goes
with, which would not be in this and
many other Nebraska communities,
yet it is evident that what is done in
York is simply to drive under cover
where it is much worse than it is iu the
open. Those newspaper articles sim
ply are evidences, told in an unwilling
way, tht the effort to suppress by law
does not succeed. Schuyler Free
BITS OF EARLY NEBRASKA
The Cheyenne county of today is
but a feeble imitation of the Cheyenne
of thirty years and more ago. At that
time it comprised 5,100 square miles,
being 102 miles long from east to west
and fifty miles wide. Later Deuel,
Kimball, Banner and Scott's Bluff
were carved out of it, and recently it
was cut in two again to make half of
it the count of Garden.
In the old days Cheyenne was the
great cattle country. The first great
herd was brought there in 18G9 by
Edward Creighton, the Omaha man,
who made millions out of the cattle
business. Others followed, and lor
many years great herds ranged there
and the 'cowboy was supreme. The
battle of Ash Hollow, in which Gen
eral Harney sadly worsted a large
body of Indiaus7 was fought in this
county in 185".
In this county in the early days
roamed the famous outlaw, Alf Slade.
Julesburg, just across the line in Colo
rado, was the stage station, and Slade
was the superintendent JulesBeni.a
Frenchman, after whom the town was
named, offended Slade and the latter
swore he would cut off the French
man's ears and wear them as watch
charms. Beui took no chances, aud
wounded Slade. He escaped, but a
year or so later lie returned and Slade
fulfilled his threat, actually wearing
the ears on his watch chaiu.
Fort Sedgwick, on the southern Hue
of Cheyenne county, was a frontier
garrison intended to protect early Ht
tiers. In 1805 the fort was captured
by the Sioux and the garrison butch
ered. The troubles with the Indians
were kept up lor many years. They
ran off stock from the ranches, settlers
were attacked and killed, stages aud
emigrant trains were waylaid. These
were ended in 180!), when General
Carr, assisted by Bill Cody as chief of
scouts, pursued and slaughtered a large
body of Sioux near Fort Sedgwick.
Ou the completion of the Union
Pacific railroad to within about fifty
mil?J of the western boundary of the
state, iu the fall of 18C7, a town was
laid out and called Sidney. Previous
to 1870 the county had been attached
to Lincolu county, but that summer
the citizens organized and secured the
issuance of a proclamation by Gover
nor Butler for a secial election.
The first and only county seat of
Cheyenne has been Sidney. The first
building was a log house brought iu
from his rauch by a Frenchman, who
utilized it as a saloon aud supply store.
There was no town within a hundred
miles aud being in the center of a
stock raising region, Sidney rapidly
grew. New impetus was given it wheu
the gold excitement in the Black Hills
broke out. Sidney became the out
fitting point for many expedition, and
stage and freight stations were estab
lished there. At one time as high as
a million pounds of freight left there
daily. Strangers thronged the streets
daily on their way to the front. Bull
whackers were there with their freight
wagous, gamblers with their imple
ments. Sidney was a rough frontier town
aud murders were not infrequent Iu
1879 a man named Keed was lynched
for killing a respected citizen named
Loom!, who had been accused by
Heed's mistress of accosting her as she
walked down the street The lynching
was no vulgar rope pulling. Reed was
given the choice of being hanged or
hanging himself. He chose the latter.
A rope was put around his neck, the
other end being attached to a telegraph
pole. He coolly walked up the
ladder with the rope around his neck
and jumfied off.
In 1881 the decent folks iu Sidney
decided to break the rule of the gam
blers, who ran the town with a high
hand. They raided the places of evil
resort, and arrested a number of men.
A gambler named McDonald, who
had indulged iu many threats of kill
ing and who led the opposition, was
lynched as a result of the trouble.
This was one of the last of a number
of lynchings. For some years murders
were so frequent that the citizens lie
came careless and hardened. Iu the
dance halls most of the killings occur
red, but the usual thing was to tumble
the corpse iut) a corner and on with
the dance. It generally took two or
three killings to break up one of these
rough affairs. The class that made
the trouble were not residents, but
transients, and when these passed on
with the settliug down to regular bus
iness, Sidney became as staid and law
abiding as any other town in the state.
Mr. Bryan has sticcumlted to the in
fluences which surround his home.
Lincoln is the nucleus of more societ
ies for the reform of mankind than any
other spot, of its size, on earth. One
can find anything there from socialism
to Seventh Day Adventism; from raw
food cranks to spiritualism; from reli
gious orthodoxy to atheism; from labor
unions to capitalistic combines.
Every other door is a Y. M. C. A., or
a college or a church, and between
these is either a crank, or a grafter try
ing to skin the innocent The city is
built on a salt marsh and the inhabit
ants never get a breath of real air on
less they leave town. Nearly every
reformer in Lincoln has one hand on
the Bible and the other in someone's
pocket. The suburbs consist of more
colleges, suburb towns populated most
ly by wornout preachers and last yearls
deaconesses, while farther out are peni
tentiaries and reformatories, idiot
homes and lunaticasylums. Fairbury
A ROW WITH PREACHERS.
Elbert Hubbard: Bishop Quayle
about a year ago, one Sunday evening,
took me as a text
He was expatiatiug on my life from
the Sacred Desk, when a women arose
in the audience and stood perfectly
Such a circumstance is sure to dis
concert a speaker, for he loses his audi-
fence, and then his confidence. The
people are looking at the still, silent
figure and wondering what next. An
interruption, even though planned in a
play, is always exciting.
The Pious Bushwhacker felt the
Kosmic Kibosh closing down on him,
like a summer cjoud. He mopped his
brow and his voice became filed with
cobwebs. He paused. The little
woman said. "I know this man you
are discussing; and evidently you do
not, for you are stating that which is
Just then the organist got on to his
job, like Jack Binns on board the Re
public. The roar and rush of the' in
strument drowned the voice of the wo
man, aud on sigual the audience arose
and sang, "Pull for the Shore." In
the meantime a large poddy Elder with
pus plus, placed two fingers under the
right elbow of the little woman who
had stampeded the elephant, and led
her down the aisle to the door. There
she was dismissed with a warning that
if she ever came back she would be ar
rested on charge of disturbing a religi
ous meeting, all as duly provided in
In time agone I have occasionally
criticized the so-called religious be
liefs and professional methods of Rev.
Dr. Reuben A. Torrey, Rev. Dr. H.
Wilbur Chapman, Rev. Billy Sunday
and Bishop Billy Quayle, also certain
other Divine Billies and Sams.
None of these gentlemen being able
to answer logic, nave contented them
selves, at odd times and sundry, by
calling me vile names. Also they
have dived deep into what they are
pleased to call my "past." This "past"
not being sufficiently salacious, they
have taken the liberty of hand-illuminating
Not so long ago the Reverend
Reuben Archer Torrey preached at
Montgomery, Alabama, and interject
ed into his glad tidings of great joy
these words: "In an obscure cross
roads town in New York state lives
one of the worst men in America.
This man is Elbert Hubbard, who
publishes atrocious and blasphemous
tommyrot and calls it literature. I
am told that his publications circulate
here in Montgomery, and I want right
now to warn you against them. This

I refrain from quoting further. An
evangelist can use language in the pul
pit that I am not allowed to circulate.
However, iu the printed report of the
reverend gentleman's remarks con
cerning my wife, I find the words,
"wanton," "immoral," aud "shameless."
If there is any one thing that the
true American refrains from, it is re
viling the good name of womeu.
I have known men who would get
drunk, swear and lie, but who had
enough of the remnant of the gentle
man left, so they would not speak ill
of women. Aye! I have seen in the
Far West men of this class slip their
coats off and oiler to fight the Inducer

memory of mother, wife, sister or

ing Christ, standing before thousands
of good men and women besmearing
with the slime of his foul tongue, a
woman he has never seen.
He raises back-fence-gossip to the
dignity of authority, through the posi
tion that he holds.
Does Torrey of Tophet think be can
talk like this and still elude Nemesis?
Does he realize that this woman he
reviles could go, and with cold. lead

like a dog on the streets, and that no
law in America could touch a hair of
Does he know that the husband of
a slandered wife, according to Com
mon Law in America, can call out the
slanderer, even though this wife were
once a "wanton?"
Ask any lawyer!
The American home is sacred, and
he who tries to disrupt, by villifyinga
wife does so at his own peril.
And so a lawyer of distinction writes
me from Montgomery, say ing, "I heard
the Rev. Dr. Torrey's remarks aboat
yon and your family. I also have the
stenographic report of his sermon, and
the newspaper clippings. The langu
age is certainly actionable, and I am
at your service if desired, without fee,
in order if possible to teach these pul
pit blatherskites a lesson."
Obno, I'm not going to kill Torrey
much less does my wife have designs
on his ecclesiastic carcass.
If there were a shade of truth in his
vaporings, we might go after him, but
we leave him to the devil in which be
believes, and to the hell he preaches;
and we ourselves thank the good God
that when we pass from this life to an
other, we shall not go to the same
place where is located the Rev. Dr.
Reuben Archer Torrey, Reviler and
Traducer of Womanhood.
Just in passing let me say, no one
who ever saw Alice Hubbard and
heard her voice, ever believed ill of
her, much less did they use any one of
the awful words which this alleged
servant of God flings in her direction.
Alice Hubbard is reaching out for
her fiftieth birthday. The gold of her
hair has turned to silver; deep lines of
thought and experience furrow her
plain but honest face. She has lived
an earnest, active and useful life.
From childhood, without rest or respite
she has been a worker a wage earner.
She is a woman of intelligence, and is
today one of the world's great women
workers. She is a writer, a teacher,
the superintendent of a factory, and
the manager of a hotel. Every Sat
urday she looks a pay roll of over
three thousand dollars, square in the
eye. She is a creator and a builder.
How cheap and silly for a man who
does no useful thing, who lives on the
labor of others, to revile a woman of
this type a woman -with grown up
children, whose life is devoted to
human needs, and whose heart goes out
to the whole world in blessing!
Especially does Alice Hubbard
think of her own sex in a desire to give
them the freedom of opportunity which
the mothers of the race deserve. Shu
is a woman who knows the great and
good who haye lived and worked and
loved, and often sublimely failed and
nobly died. A woman who loves the
memory of Froebel, the friend of chil
dren, and lives in the spirit with Eliza
beth Fry, Susan B. Anthony and
Ralph Waldo Emerson, cannot be
reached by the malodorous lyddite sent
forth from the lying lips of Torrey, the
A few weeks ago Billy Sunday was
horsewhipped in the pulpit for villify
ing womauhood. There were some big
welts raised ou the evangelistic legs,
but it is doubtful if the lesson will
short-stop the Reverend Billy from
continuing his libels on the race.
The man who stung him up with a
buggy whip had no right to do so, and
was promptly given a term in jail. A
remark made by the judge who sen
tenced him is worth quoting: "While
it is doubtless true that this defendant
and his wife have both suffered from
being wrought upon through religious
emotionalism, there was no excuse for
his assaulting' Mr. Sunday. The de
fendant has here stated that Mr. Sun
day has reviled the women of this
town. Granting for argument's sake
that this were true, it gives no man
excuse for forgetting law and order.
Had Mr. Sunday reviled some partic
ular woman to her shame and dis
grace, there might then be some ex
cuse for some particular man to come
to her defense. As it is, the defendant
should be punished."
The Rev. Walter Holcombe was
recently fined five hundred dollars for
using insulting language toward a
woman in his audience. The woman
was a worthy wife and mother. The
Georgia court of appeals confirmed the
sentence, and said among other things:
"Even though the woman were a per-,
son of ill repute, the law 'protects her
from insult and assault."

In Perfect Accord.
Some years ago there came to an
Amerlcau city a delightful German.
Herr vou Blitz, who intended to sup
port himself by giving lessous in his
native tongue. When he had been here
. several mouths and had secured a
moderate number of pupils lie went
oue day to the mother of one of them
and to her great surprise asked for
her daughter's hand in marriage.
"But, my dear sir," said she. "my
daughter lias no fortune."
The suitor smiled uon her in an ex
"Me, too." said he reassuringly.
"And, although we are not rich, wc
have thus far been able to give her
every comfort. She is Indeed used to
"Me, too," was the smiling rejoinder.
"But, Herr von Blitz, she will never
be able to manage affairs."
"Me, too," rejoiced the lover.
"And I feel obliged to tell you that
my daughter has a very higli temper."
"Me too me too."
That was enough. The mother re
tired from the contest, aud the pro
fessor won his suit.
Quick Justice at Ascot.
Not only the horses, but the powers

are swift at Ascot, for the course has

Is decreed by clause 31 or the in

In the eighteenth century from an as
sault upon a royal personage. In his
Indignation at the impossibility of in

ordered that In future a magistrate

done, and by the above mentioned act

to enable him to hold this court at
Natural Age of Man.
The question as to what Is the nat

tled, of course, but many are of the
opinion that the Frenchman Kiourens
was not far out of the way in his est!

The Word "Canvassing."
How "canvassing" got its election
significance is one of the unsolved
puzzles of etymology. The word ap
pears originally-to have meant tossing
In a canvas or blanket and thence gen
erally mishandling or assaulting. "I'll
canvass thee iu thy broad cardinal's
bat," Is the Duke of Gloucester's
threat to the bishop of Winchester In
"King Henry VI." The next stage ol
meaning was that of destructive crlti
clsm, from which to thorough discus
slon "canvassing" a subject was sim
pie enough. But bow exactly did it
arrive at the election sense? Dr. John
son explained that the term meant
"trying votes previously to the deci
sion" and derived it from "canvas, as
it signifies a sieve." The Oxford Dic
tionary, however. Is uuable to find this
use of the Vord.
