The new mayor has
made some good ap
pointments. He has
made it plain to the
public that he is influenced by considera
tions other than "pulls" in politics in
making important appointments. His
appointment of Malone as chief of the
fire department was dictated by a
desire to preserve the efficiency
of this department. Mr. Malone
has demonstrated his marked fitness
for the position, and the council
in refusing to confirm him acted
contrary to the wishes of the taxpayers
of the city. The new city physician and
deputy city attorney and other appoint
ees of the mayor are capable men and
satisfactory to the public Mayor
Graham has done well thus far.
The New York Herald the
other day published
expressions on the finan
cial question from such
men as Joseph C. Sibley, Governor
John P. Altgeld, Senator Palmer, Lewis
Speery, Senator Allison, Charles S.
Fairchild and W. J. Bryan. Mr. Bryan
said: "The issue in 1896 will be the
immediate restoration of the free and
unlimited coinage of gold and silver at
the present ratio of sixteen to one, with
out waiting for the consent of any other
nation on earth. The president may lead
the gold standard democrats in an
effort to control the next democratic
national convention, but the effort will
be in vain, because the party will stand
by the gold and silver coinage of the
constitution." Mr. Bryan discussed the
-attitude of republicans on the money
question and intimated that the repub
lican party will split wide open on silver.
There is some disagreement on this
question within republican lines, but
there is nothing as yet to indicate that
there will be a split The wish and not
facts fathered this thought of Mr,
Bryan's. Senator Don Cameron, of
Pennsylvania, is a free silverite after
Mr. Bryan's own heart, but of all the
prominent candidatesfor the republican
nomination for president Cameron is
the only one who marches under the
16 to 1 banner. Keed has temporized a
little, but he is far from the advocacy of
free coinage. Harrison is committed to
a policy of sound mon ey. McKinley has
given assurance that he will keep clear
of the sentimental, sde of the .money
question. Senator Allison iq. a! recent
speech said: "Our free silver friends,
for the purpose of doing justice and
equity, insist 'that mortgages- given
within,four years, and debts contracted
within ix months, be scaled down fifty
percent,.. Is this equity, or justice, to
either class of people? Is there a man
with soul so dead as to ask congress to
be guilty of this injustice?" On what
Mr. Bryan bases his prediction that the
It was in the month of
THE MONTH May, two years ago, that
OF the dreadful panic began.
MAY, 1S95 For one year business all
over the country was
much disturbed. There was trouble
everywhere. The month of May, one
year ago, found the people suffering
from the general "depression, but the
panic had spent its force. There was no
longer any excitement, only discourage
ment. This year May is ushered in
under auspicies decidedly more favor
able. Since the first of the year there
has been a general improvement iu.busi
ness, and just now the outlook is especi
ally bright. In Nebraska May brings the
promise of a rich agricultural produc
tion. Rain has come at proper intervals,
soaking the ground in every section of
the state. The soil is in excellent con
dition. There is a Bong of a glorious
harvest in the air. The grass is green
about us. Fruit trees are laden with
blossoms. Nature is radiant in her
garb of spring, and the heart of the peo
ple is glad.
George W. Ledigh, the
WOLFE'S newly appointed warden of
CRIES the penitentiary, may be
and doubtless is a good
man; but his appointment is neverthe
less, to be regretted. It has stirred up
Uncle J. V. Wolfe, and from the point of
view of the public, it is much better not
to have Uncle stirred up. For Uncle
will insist on writing letters anJ other
wise exploiting himself in a notorious
manner. And just now, in these beau
tiful spring days it is much better to
listen to the songs of the birds and look
upon the wonderful unfolding of nature
than to listen to Uncle's sordid plaints.
Uncle finds fault with Governor Hoi
comb for the appointment of Mr.
Ledigh and voices his dissatisfaction
at the governor's refusal to appoint
him, Uncle, to a good, paying office.
Now Uncle has been monkeying with
politics for so many years that he should
hava learned the politican's first lesson
to keep quiet when you are sat upon.
Uncle's cries are undignified and reflect
small credit on his common sense. His
comparison of Governor Holcomb with a
fat pig is in bad taste. Even if there
was a resemblance it ill becomes Uncle
to point it out. Of course the grief
which nestles in the breast of Uncle is
intense. We can well imagine that To
have left the democratic party -and
become a populist, thinking to find
thereby a short and sure path to office,
and to have been bo many times in sight
of the goal, only to have the goal moved

Uncle ought to have known that every
populist could not get office, and if at
this late day, he is sorry he left his old
party for a place in the shifting sands
of populism, he ought to suppress his
lamentations and put on a smiling face.
Poor old Uncle! You are destined, it
seems, to fill out your days as a simple
private in the ranks, and you might as
well stop kicking.

general appearance, the
change being, we believe, a decided
improvement. From this time on The
Courier will bid for advertising and
subscription patronage with redoubled
energy. The editor, whose management
of TheCourieb was for some time inter
fered with by his duties as editor of
the Evening Call, will give his entire
attention to this pper in future, rein
forced by Mr. F. T. Dean, who has sold
his interest in the Fassett-Mickel Print

take charge of the advertising for The

the merchants of Lincoln, and his con

prove to be of much value, not only to
The Courier, but to all advertisers.
