Again cosies the report that the late
Mr. Majcrs being asked if he was a can
didate for governor again, said "I am
not a candidate; but I have always been
ready to answer any call from ray coun
try, and I am ready now," That k well,
If Mr. Majors will just continue to wait
until he is called it will be all right.
The danger is that he will come without
calling. He has done that many times
before, and he hss got in the habit of
it The chances of Mr. Majors ever
having any call for bim to be a candi
date for governor again are so remote
that they are not worth considering.
In the Irkt place nobody will call, and
then it (here should be any sound Mr.
Majors could not bear it. The tesatTfc.
which he now reposec in damp and sor
rowful oblivion is far removed from the
busy walks of the living. No ordinary
sounds penetrate its solid, tangible
gloom. The quiet is unbroken and will
be unbroken, No invitation to take up
the battle again will ever come to this
shipwrecked mariner. He is beyond
Poor Mr Rosewater! Of late his
lines hare not fallen in pleasant places.
He hss sowed the seeds of abuse and
k reaping a harvest of misery. Troubles
are coming upon him, and he k being
weighed down by grkvious vexations.
It k not the auit for 850,000 damages
which G. If. Hitchcock, alias the
World Publishing Company, recently
commenced. That is a balm to the
running sore. The Bee of late has not
been holding its own, and there k much
personal humiliation in this. Then in
tin great game of politics in which the
querulous editor has been wont to try
hk skill too often his opponents hare
bees able to crack their heels together
and cry "Checkmate!" Things have
been going badly. The refusal of the
suprese court of Nebraska to receive
the decoration known as the Rosewater
cellar the cruel disappointment in the
matter of the Omaha fire and police
commission this was a serious blow to
the man who but recently was called
"an after dark production on the cross
roads between Bohemia and Judea."
No wonder this defeat gave rise to a
report that "Mr. Rosewater will shortly
retire from the management of the
Bee. But another blow was in store for
the man who has been punching some
body all hk life.
It came in the triumphant re-nom-iaatkn
of Judge Cunningham R. Scott.
Scott k generally credited as being a
somewhat erratic and very much un
balanced judge; an honest man, but
irascible, lacking altogether in the
traditional judicial temperament. In
the ordinary course f affairs the people
of Doaglas county would have certainly
retired him from the bench with celerity.
But Rosewater's persecution has made
a martyr of him. and his re nomination
was nothing more nor less than a
rebuke to the malicious editor. In his
eitended course of abuse of Tom
Majors aad other public men Mr. Rose
water has exhibited a certain pktur
etque mendacity, but he has in no other
single persecution reached the acme of
devUish evil attained in hk pursuit of
Judge Scott. Whatever may be the
shortcomings of the judge there could'
be no justification for the malicious,
mendacious aad devilish warfare of Mr.
Rosewater, aad even those persons who
know Judge Scott's wsaknesses cannot
but rejoice at hk victory in overcoming,
inthk first battle, the vnom of the
Bee's reptilian editor.

Having been taught from my earliest
that the Bible was God's

may say jocose manner in which the
editors of Tar Courier treat "Bible
Student's' inquiry. It k true that
Paul in speaking of marriage, 1 Cor. 7
chap., admitted that he was not speak
ing by commandment, but by permis
sion, as one who had obtained mercy of
the Lord, to be faithful; but in no pas
sage in which he treats of the subor
dination of woman to man does he inti
matt, that he k not speaking by inspir
ation, and to assume otherwise may be
a "dangerous presumption" unless we
are prepared to abandon the inspiration
of the Scriptures and admit them to be
man's work. I will quote a few pas
sages from the Bible that we may
understand what it teaches on thk
1st Cor. 11 Chap.: "But I would have
you know that the head of every man
k Chrkt, and the head of every woman
k the man, for the man k not of the
woman, but the woman of the man.
Neither was man created for the woman,
but the woman for the man.
14 Chap.: "Let your women keep
silence in the churches, for it is not
permitted unto them to speak, but they
are commanded to be under obedience,
and if they will learn anything let them
ask of their husbands at home, for it is
a shame for a woman to speak in the
Eph. 5 Chap.: "Wires submit to
your own husbands as unto the Lord,
for the husband is the head of the wife
even as Christ k the head of the church.
Therefore as the chuich is subject to
Christ, so let the wife be to her own
husband in everything.''
1st Pet. 3rd Chap.: "Likewise ye
wires be in subjection to jour own hus
bands and ye husband giving honor
unto the wife as the weaker vessel."
1st Timt 2nd Chap.: 'iLet the women
learu with silence with all subjection,

Bible authorities k easily ascertained
The old testament from beginning to
end teacbea that woman was created
for, aad taught to consider herself
subordinate to man, and ,by God's
direct command. In Gen., 2 it k de
creed that a wo nan giving birth to a
maid child should be uncleanly, and
punkhed twice as long as had her child
been of the other sex.
Again look at the different standards
of morality, recognized by the Bible in
regard to men and women; by the
direct command of God when he was
leading hk people through the wilder
ness to the promised land, and tell me
candidly, was not Paul, and every man
and woman who would follow Paul's
foot steps and the Bible teachings
justified in believing, that woman was
created to be subordinate to man; and
so k it not a "dangerous presumption"
on her part to claim to be man's equal?
That she does thk is an open secnt,
and while it does not yet appear what
she may do, who will doubt that the
"new woman' may soon claim to be

preaching of the flood was not popular

The readers of thk paper will be
pleased to learn that there k at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that k catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatement. Hall's
Catarrh Cure k taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby
destroying the foundation of the disea

by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.
