is not visible to the unaided vision in

The last objection urged ngainst Sen
ator Van Wycd is that It is undignified
in a rnitcd States senator lo jaunt around
thn stat < < and shake hands with his farm
er con-litupiit.s. This terrible indictment
will di iihtlcu. * ! ruin the general's chawt
in quart TI where the idea of senatorial
dignity is that it consists in frtruttiug
around in store clothes and drinking
champagne with wealthy nabobs. The
people of agricultural Nebraska , how
ever , will ! ( but little in thn charge to
damage the senator , General Van Wyek
has always been a man of the people.
Ho was raised in a farming community
and has lived among farmers over since.
His associates may have contracted
Ills ideas about the dignity proper for
f-onntorhil assumption , but they have
prevented him from being anything of a
snob. He has yd to learn what it is to
bo ashamed of his friends or to look
down upon such of his constituents as
wear jeans instead of broadcloth , and
who plow corn instead of gouging clients.
( Jenonil Van Wyck's ideas of senatorial
dignity may be peculiar , but they are
safe , lu his opinion , a dignity which
stands in the way of olllcienl action
for the people's interests is a false
dignity. Mr. Kdmunds complained of
Van Wyck's lack of senatorial dignity
several times , but it was only after his
knuckles had been sharply rapped while
pounding the senatorial desk In behalf
of the corporations. It may not be dig-
nilied for n senator elected by the people
and responsible to the people to mingle
with his constituents and explain how ho
has kept the trusts committed by them
to hi ? care ; but it is rational and proper.
Tlio people of Nebraska have found such

The hum of politics grows cacli day
louder and moro general , and for the
next two inonlhs political controversy
will make ils usual annual demand upon
the space of newspapers and the atten

publicans of Ohio and Iowa held their
conventions. So far as the declarations
these bodies refer to national ques

respect present a notable contrast to the at
discordant views of the democratic con

these columns several days ago.

Squire's SticoesHor.
Governor Hill , of New York , finally
reached a decision respecting his duty
in tlie Squire matter , and approved tlie
removal of that ollieial. It cannot bo
known how miieh this result is duo to
the strong outside pressure , but it is not
to bo doubled that the
governor was ex
tremely reluctant to take llio slop , and
doubtless weighed mod carefully the
probable political consequences of either
line of action. A plausible explanation
of the delay in approving tlie removal of
Squire will be found in the duly of de
liberately considering tlie effect of such
approval upon the case in court , and
this will very likely bo accepted as sulll-
cionl. 11 is not doubtful that the action
of tlio governor will increase his popular
strength. Tlie appointment of General
Newton to succeed Squires as commis
sioner of public works was eminently
judicious. General Newton is at present
the head of Hie engineer corps of
the United States army with the
ranK and pay of a brigadier general.
His whole lifo for nearly lifty years lias
been .spout in the study of engineering ,
and his career has litled him in every
way for liio position tendered him. In
order to accept the olliee , the general
will have to resign his commission in the
army or ask for retirement. As he is
within a few months of the age for com
pulsory retirement ho will doubtless take
latter course. Under the statute , the
president can retire any ollieer on bis
own application who has served forty
years. General Newton's service oxcec'ls

1-Yoo Spnvvti niul Anarchism.
New York had an anarchist meeting
lust Friday at which several of the speak
ers denounced vindioiively the present
government and the existing state of
society. There wai n great deal of rabid
talk and not a few senseless threats. As
a result , several ill-ad\isod citizens ap
pealed to the district attorney to take
notice of the meeting and to cause the
arrest of the < o who took part. This ho
very properly refused lo do on the safe
and constitutional ground that free
speech is guaranteed to every citixen
and that unlawful acts only fall under
thn surveillance of the court
ofllcors. District Attorney Marline
occupies a position on the ques
tion which cannot be assailed.
If the right of public assemblage and
free discussion of political and social
questions is to depend upon the will of
government , the United Stales is on the
road to a despotism which is the surest
breeder of anarchists , socialists and dy
namiters. It is because America is aland
of free speech , in which every citizen has
full rights to express his opinions and
afterwards to voice them in n free ballot ,
that anarchism can never obtain a foot
hold In this country. Ignorant foreigners
smarting under the oppressions to which
they have been subjected abroad may
rave in public of the evils of
our present social organi/ation and the
imaginary outrages which the people en
dure under a people' . * government. Hut
the public which reads their wild vapor-
ings is enlightened by their very folly.
Free speech acts as a safety valve for
passion nhich if suppressed would surely
break out in social disorder. It is the
bulwark of rcpublici'ii institutions , tlio
assurance ot their stability and the sale-
guard against the .schemes and conspira
cies of deluded fools and reckless and
wicked men. Suppressing anarchism is
one thing. Suppressing free speech is lo
quite another.

Pjnvos county , ut tlio suggestion of many
of our fulloNV-citiztMis , and tlio request o
others , I have been iiskwl to writi
mi article , nml cuii c it to bo published
in your paper , setting forth the many ail
vantages of Dnwi-s county na a stock
raising country , in order Hint tlio pee
of tlio county may have mi opportunity
to discuss tlio matter and bring it botoro
the people in a rensonablo li ht. 'L'ho
geographical situation of the county has
been so often written up ami published
in tin : Ilii : : that 1 deem it unnecessary to
write-rnytliliiK further on that subject.
Hut the question 1 wiih : to call attention
to is that of a fence- law which la now bo
iiifi agitated throughout the county.
From my stand-point , I claim that a
fence law would be of mcslimablo value
to all the people throughout the county ,
especially to tlio poor settler who is just
starting to farm.
1' , because a largo portion of the
county consists of blull's and other lands
which , under no circumstancus , could bo
cultivated , but which could bu used to
great advantage for [ "gracing purposes
for small herds of caltlo or horses. This
would certainly give the people a chance ,
.especially the poor fanners , to become
owners of nmll herds of liyo stock. It is
true that the price of cattle is bccomii
cheaper every year , but this fact is an ml-
vantage to the farmer. In my opin
ion , an ordinary cow is not
worth 'more ' tfian ton dollars
and will not bring more than that
amount in a few yenr.s more time. A
further advantage is that horses and cat
tle will live throughout the wiutor , and
would require no other feed or hay to
keep them alive. Another advantage
that would arise under a fence law
would be that the poor farmcrH who are
unable to buy cattle could obtain all they
could take care of on shares. For in
stance H is a farmer with 100 acres of
land but no money to buy stoclc , C is a
merchant or clerk who has money to buy
thirty ' or forty head of cows , but could
ati'ord to handle them himself. He
contracts with 1 > to take cliarge of ( lie
same for half of tlio increase. This in
usual way of doing such business ,
which is certainly advantageous to both
parties. This arrangement will , no .
doubt , seem dUlicult (
to those who arc in
experienced in such busines , but such is
the case , for when 15 buys thirty
head of cows he f immediately puts his
brand on them , and in the coining spring
when the increase of calves are to be
branded , C puts his own brand on his
hilfof the increase , thus avoiding any
possible contest as lo ownership ,
The writer hereof has worked for
many years under the share system and
found no tlillictilty.
Dawes county is assuredly well adapted
such stock raising. Water and grass
to be found in abundance , while the
bluffs abound in timber suitable for fenc
purposes. It will , no doubt , be said
many that the fence law would only
benolicial to large cattle men , but
assertions are far from being true ,
under no circumstances could the
owner of a large herd allbrd to turn them
in a country where there arc a num EYE
of small owners.
Wliat has been said of cattle tlio same
bo applied to horses. No bettor
country exists for horse raising than
northwestern Nebraska. Texas mares
cheap , and are likely to become
cheaper vet. They rciiuire very little
, and in fact it is said by many that
are more profitable than cattlo.

in the state , and the solid men of
Chadron whoso names are legion , would
