Hurrah for Bill! --' - When-anesp3per becamai so foul that parents, for the proper protection of. their children, are forced to pass it directly from the carrier's hands to the stove, it would seem that a press censor would not be superfluous. One of the evening papers in this city would keep him busy. In Omaha it waa not only possible to secure the conviction of Bolln and the imposition of a sentence of nineteen years' imprisonment, but official zeal sought out men charged with tamper ing with the jury In the first trial of the case, and caused their arrest. The peo ple of a state who have grown accus tomed to seeing criminals of the Bolln stripe given their liberty and an offi cial vindication, must regard with a mingled feeling of wonder and amaze ment the accelerated movement of jus tice in Omaha. The sentence was just and right. It is worthy of note that the man who consigned Bolln to nineteen years' imprisonment was the same man who was successful as United States dis trict attorney in getting C. W. Mosher off with a sentence of Ave years. Mash er's reputed stealings amount to $1,000, 000, while Bolln's shortage was $112,000.

The debate In the Creighton theatre be tween Mr. Everlasting Rosewater and Mr. William Jingling Bryan wasn't a Al Falrbrother has suddenly reap peared on the scene and is contributing to the general political unpleasantness that obtains in this state. Colonel Fair brother is a man of varied and peculiar talents, and the possession of these tal ents has discouraged any Idea the colonel may have had of retaining a residence In any one place for a con siderable length of time. Since he left Nebraska he has set up his Lares and Penates and printing press in many an unfamiliar place, only to And, after a short space, that circumstances, like the poifceman said, "Move On." He has blazed a trail from Lincoln to Dur ham, N. C. and from Durham through Pennsylvania and New York, and life with him has been, if not a continual round of pleasure, at least a continual round or excitement. Colonel Fair brother could settle on an uninhabited isle and In three days have the entire population by the ears. He could sell extra editions in the Desert of Sahara. He has a sensational hat and sensa tional hair and he wields a sensational pen. Now he Is back on the old stamping ground writing breezy letters about the "Joes" and "Jacks" of Nebraska politics for the weekly papers. Not many years ago there flourished an am bitious journalistic school in this state. O. H. Rothacker and Fred Nye were Its shining lights. Walt Mason and Al. Falrbrother scintillated around the greater orbs. Those were great days. The Omaha Republican, Omaha World, State Journal and the Lincoln Call used to flash and sputter with brilliance. Erratic geniuses they were most of them but they used to write things that it was a pleasure to read. In the past five years our newspapers have be come less brilliant, but, perhaps, more prosperous. Certainly they have Im proved In balance and discretion. Fair brother cultivates a gruff, uncouth, battering-ram style, but he knows how Only Practical Hatters.-Inbincoln 1896 NOVELTY Making hats a specialty.
