The object aimed at la desirable enough,
the Italian navy being undoubtedly In need
of more liberal expenditure, but It would
be well not to attach too much Importance
to exaggerated language used by Italian
newpspers In order to recommend such
an expenditure to the country. It la a

Lieutenant Acquitted of Old Charge.
The military court of Justice at Florence
has acquitted Lieutenant Modugno. Mo
dugno oommunJed a portion of the Italian
troops during tht war in China, against
the Boxers. He returned to Italy and was
charged with having murdered hla wife,
but was acquitted. Then he was charged
with Illegally appropriating enormous
riches In China through plundering and
killing several wealthy Chinamen. The
chief charge consisted of Slaving buried In
ooal a rich Chinaman. The fact was at
the time related by the papers, and there
was no answer to this last charge, which
caused a deep Impression.- Modugno ap

gram.) "Nebrifrka must have new law he

The democratic candidate for governor and
I stand absolutely opposite on this propo

His speech at Columbus was In some
particulars like the speeches he has been
making elsewhere. He not only charged
the railroads with demanding exorbitant
freight rates, but he produced the figures
to show the people of Columbus how
they were discriminated against and how
they were being robbed. He compared
the republican and democratic plat fornix
and called special attention to the "we
believe." of the democrats and the "we de
mand" of the republicans.' He called at
tention to the denunciation of the rail
roads by the republicans for not paying
their taxes and the pledges made by the
individual republican candidates for the
legislature to enact a law giving power
to the railway commission to relieve the
people. These things were "demanded"
In the republican platform, he said.
He dcfotided himself against thu drn-i-prp
