LINCOLN , , Aug. 19. ( Special. ) The
Evening Post , which was owned by Bryan's
private secretary and has been operated
two years as a free silver organ , today
closed up Us office doors and ceased publi
cation. In tbe farewell notice to the publls
the paper says that It succumbs because of
"a persistent tendency on the part of the
gross receipts to fall below the gross ex
penditures. " It further explains that this
a common malady to which many other
"reform" newspapers have fallen victims
and Intimates that the popocrats are not
loyally supporting their official organs. The
Post began publication when tbe free silver
agitation was the liveliest in 1595 and was
reputed to be owned and held up by Mr.
Bryan himself. Since thent as the silver
agitation dwindled down and the local pope
crats lost hope of success , the paper has bad
a hard time to keep alive. Two months ago
Bryan's secretary leased the plant to Frank
Edmonds , who has since In the face of many
itfflcultles published a very creditable pa
per. In the war between the Edralsten and
Gaffln factions In the populist party , how
ever , the support of the paper has grown less
end less until it has finally succumbed. A
scheme of Bcnton Maret to get possession
of the plant and operate Independent of
cither the Edmlstcn or Gaffln crowds has
apparently miscarried. The principal cred
itors of the paper are the workmen who have
been employed during the summer. The
Woodruff Printing company has a , claim for
steam power and the Newspaper Union has
Bled suit against the proprietors of the plant
for a paper and stereotype bill amounting
to over 1200.
The sick report for the Second regiment

the hospital and eight In quarters , with

A telegram from Colonel Olson of the Second

were sent home last night In charge ot
Captain Rebcrt nnd ten nurses. Also that
Thomas E. Hedges of Company I died Sun
day. The message says that the regiment
Is ordered to move as soon as transportation
can be secured. General Barry wired this
afternoon asking If the sick men were able
to come north with tbe regiment.

of the movement to have the street repaved.
The contest Is on between those who want
brick pavmcnt nnd those who favor asphalt ,
and it seems that the latter are gaining
ground. It is argued that should O street be
paved with brick and one of the other busi

the business would go to the asphalt street

DISCORD AMONG FCSIOXISTS
Almost Every Portion of the State Has Its
Troubles , Great and Small.
PASS HOLDERS ARE HAVING A HARD TIME
Democrat * nnd Pnpnllsts nt Onts In
Severn ! Counties Dlssnllsfnc-
tlon Over Legislative
dominations.
LINCOLN , Aug. 29. ( Special. ) The
quarreling , back-biting and threatening
among the "reform" forces Is not all con-
flned to Richardson county , although there
Is more trouble there to the square mile
than in any other part of the state. There
never has been good feeling In Otoc be
tween the democrats and pops and the
failure to fuse on the county ticket last
year widened the breach. There Is a pre
tense of unity there on the state ticket this
year , but those who are welt acquainted In
the. county say that there will be .a great
turning-over this fall , the republican gain
coming about equally from the two reform
parties.
In Cas county the democratic delegates
who left the congressional convention
shouting "hurrah for Burkett" are still
causing trouble and the assertion made by
certain popocratlc officeholders that "the
bolting delegates are without character or
Influence and cannot control their own
votes" has Induced the bolters and their
friends to take the field and work openly
against the fusion candidate for congress. In
an endeavor to furnish proof that they can
influence several votes besides their own.
A striking sample of fusion "harmony"
comes from Gage and Saline counties and
11 is beet told In the words of the Saline
county Independent , the leading populist
paper of the county , which says :
Last Saturday Dan Freeman of Gage
county held a populist float convention at
this place and nominated hlmielf a candi
date to bo voted for by the fusion parties
of Gage and Saline for the legislature. The
convention was called by the cotnralttccman
of Gage , but he had previously been nrllCed
by this county that we were not ready to
hold a Joint convention. Saline \vas in-
titled to the candidate according 10 c prece
dent long established between the two coun
ties , but the old homesteader seemed to be
much stuck on the honor of receiving the
nomination though defeat was sure to fol
low that brand of politics. Not a delegate
from Saline was present , but Daniel was
satli-Ced. Two years ago the same fellows
did the same thing. They canie here with a
delegation , picked up a few voters In DeWltt ,
held a Convention , nominated their pet , Mr.
Bush , and got gloriously defeated at the
polls. That kind of political trickery never
will result favorably to a party and Mr.
Freeman will find It so In November. When
the populists meet In convention at Pleas
ant Hill in September they must net forget
to place In nomination a good honest Saline
county man for the office of float representa
tive and show the bulldozers from Gage that
their way of doing political work is not the
kind we want in Saline.
In Adams county the principal democratic
paper made a vicious attack on Representa
tive Fernow , who Is a candidate for reelection
tion , which leads the Hastings Public Jour
nal , a populist paper , to remark-
Had Mr. Fernow been a democrat the four-
column article which was published last week
would not have appeared in their sh ct. Cry
fusion aad harmony and give every populist
a stab In the back who vlll not agree to
stand pat.
In Holcomh'n Home Co tin tr
ill Custer county Representative Webb
was turned down in the county convention
because he was known to carry a railroad
puts. Now Webb and his friends , while
making a show of supporting the fusion
ticket , ICEC co opportunity of reminding
their farmer friends that Representative
Eastman , who was renomlnated. also carries
a pass , and that tbe state ofQcIals are break
ing the record In the pass business. Custer
county "reformers" are also In trouble be
cause they have In their ranks a defaulting
county treasurer , a defaulting county Judge
and so many defaulting tax collectors and
popocratlc postmasters that there Is a polit
ical scandal In almost every precinct. Tbe
decent people there are tired of Bill Greene ,
and Senator Beal , who served as a member
of the"Muti sniffling committee. " Is also so
unpopular that he is sure to be beaten by
F. M. Currle , his republican opponent.
In Furnas county Representative Wheeler ,
another member of the "sniffling commit
tee , " was recomlntted a few days ago , and
when he started to make a speech accepting
the honor an old farmer asked him If he
accepted railroad passes. Wheeler was cor
nered and had to admit that he carried
passes on two or three roads , but made the
excuse thst all tbe other members of the
legislature did the same. This was not par
ticularly reassuring to the farmer voters of
Furnas county , and It Is said the pass scan
dals will Induce many of the populist voters
ers to deeert the party.
In dlscutalng the general political situa
tion a few days ago a prominent populist of
the southeast part of the state , who was
one of the earliest free silver shoutera and
who has the credit of having converted
Bryan to the free coinage belief , said to
The Bee reporter : "It looks like the inocey
question Is played ou : . for the prestnt tt
least. Along about ten years from now
we will have another snell of hard times
end then there will be another struggle
over the financial question , perhaps In a
different form. The silver agitation was ,
I have come to conclude , a natural out
growth of the hard times and It has been
snowed under by the good tlrccs. The re
turn of prosperity Is losing us many votes ,
particularly among the foreign'element , and
I would not te surprised to see the whole
fusion ticket whipped this fall. " In speak
ing further of oneof the campaign dodges
now being adopted by the state officials , the
old populist fanner sld > "It won't do.
It Is too easy to see through. They boast
about the amount of consjr they hare piled
up In the lait two years , tut in the change
in the times the republicans might have
done just as well. The state officers act as
If they were coining that money out ot
nothing , as If the taxpayers ell over the
state have had no part In furnishing the
money. "
SANTIAGO FILLING UP AGAIN

SANTIAGO DE CUBA. Aug. :9. The
steamer Segurenca arrived this morning ,
bringing Lieutenant Richmond Hobson , who
will superintend the efforts to float the
sunken Spanish cruisers Cristobal Colon and
Infanta Maria Teresa. Lieutenant Hobson
bad an enthusiastic informal reception from
General Lawton , with whom be will be

ranca. brought also Captain L lgh and forty
men of the signal service corps , who will
relieve Colonel Greene. Work will be be

telegraph lines along the eastern Cuban
coast. The Seguranca brought a cargo tt
freih beef.
Today General Lawton Issued an order

government , returning it to the use ot the
local merchants and shippers. Trading ves

and deay | In consequence of Insufficient
wharf facilities and nany ships In the

muncs can be removed to the new camp ,
two miles out. The boulevard 1s a fashion
able resort for driving and promenading.
Residents of the city and province to
the number of about S.OOO , now In Coila
nica and Jamaica , are expected to return
hero during the next three weeks and prep
arations are general for a house cleaning
all around.
A whole battalion ot the Fifth regulars ,

port on Its way from the United States
and was cot Inspected at Tampa. Five
cases ot the fever have developed. A large
quantity of government supplies left here
by the commissary department will be dis
tributed among the poor. General Wood
said today :
"It seems Impossible that so much desti
tution could exist with the work ot the
Red Cross society , the government odcers
end Inspectors , but I flnd extreme distress
In the lower quarters of the city and I am
giving orders to have all cases relieved

buildings , Including one in which General
Miles established himself temporarily arc
now in flames. "
The above dispatches prove that General
Miles was In command of General Shatter's
army from beginning to end with the knowl
edge and by the consent of Secretary Alger ,
and that the administration looked to Gen
eral Miles to extricate Shatter from his dif
ficulties , which he did. General Shatter's
only excuse far attempting to evade the au
thority of his superior offlcer was furnished
by the "secret" dispatch. In the hands ot a
stronger man it might , as General Miles ex
pressed It , "have caused confusion. "
Dispatches Are Mntllntecl.
The mutilation and suppression of dis
patches are made plain by th-a publication
of the originals in the Star for the first
time. By compering them with those given
out by the War department It will be seen
that Miles' telegrams were doctored In the
War department before tielng made public.
Every one of the charges made by General
Miles Is proved true by tbe official records
and facts well known to the American pub
lic. These facts cannot be Ignored by the
people cf this country and their utterance
by the commanding general of the army
cannot be set aside by the politicians with
a mere wave of the hand or discredited by
a general denial.
General Miles Is expected home In a few
days. What he will do on his arrival , or
what the administration will do In regard
to the controversy now raging about the
War department , is difficult to say. The
breach is too wide to close , the sores arc
too deep to heal. General Miles Is a good
fighter. He has expressed himself quite
freely of late In a way that would Indicate
that ho expected music on his return and
was prepared to face it. He has the best
of the argument , for he has the official
records. His opponents have the political
power , but there is a. limit in a republic
to its insolent use.

WASHINGTON. Aug. 29. There Is still
a possibility of a hange in the personnel
of the American nie'mbershlp of the peace
commission. Up to this moment It Is not
yet definitely and absolutely known whether
Justice White will "accept the appointment
tendered him and efforts are making by the
president to learn his intentions In the
matter. Mr. McArthur , the assistant secre
tary of the American commission , is now
in New York making arrangements for the
sailing of the commission on tbe 17th of
September , so that very little time Inter
venes to make a change in the body In the
event Justice White declines the plice. It
Is suggested that Senator Lodge of Massa

formerly of the naval observatory , was reg
ularly sworn In as an acting assistant sur

that Dr. McGee will avail herself of this
privilege.

"What Is morality ? If It be conformity
to the standards ot conduct prescribed by
what for the time being is the sentiment
of the community , the age of the Puritans
was moral , but It wns not so with that of
the revolution or the civil war. How has
It been with ourselves In these days of
trial , of great deeds and new ambitions ,
or national extension by conquest or the
excitement of glorious victories In new
fields ? We have been educating ourselves
Into new beliefs. We are possessed by them
ruled by them. We believe that our coun
try Is net measured by the breadth of the
continent. We believe the Islands that
fringe the coast and those remoter still.
vrhlch In unfriendly hands might threaten
Its cecurtty , may rightfully as occasion
oners , be incorporated In the United States.
We believe that our people have duties
of humanity toward other people. We be
lieve the United States are something
greater than the states under the dag and
that the American people may acquire and
hold territory anywhere upon the globe
which Is needed to serve their navy or pro
mote their commerce. "

A large percentage of the acreage of the

long seasons of drought. Additional nj.ticn.il
ted state legislation Is tequlred. Much h.i ?
been accomplished In this direction.
The people of every state are directly In
terested In thtse questions. At the prevent
rate of Increase of population the time Is
fliort in which uvery portion of the t nltcd
States will be crowded with those seeking to
build up homes. The arid and semi-arid
regions , through development by mrans of
Irrigation , can be made capable of furnish
ing home ? for many millions of poor.
The meetings will be open to the public ,
and the sessions promise to be well at
tended , as a number of Intended papers re
lating to Irrigation axe to be read by scien
tists , engineers and expert ; .

contract to sink an artesian well for the
city of Mitchell. The drilling machine and

lieved , will be sunk below the granite , where
a strong flow Is almost certain to be en
countered.
