The Galveston Dutch
As the Dutch have reclaimed the
Netherlands from the sea the citizens
of Galveston are working to build their
town-site above the ocean. The
Dutch built walls or dykes and drained
the salt marshes. The citizens of
Galveston are taking the sand from the
bottom of the Gulf and piling it up on
what was Galveston and what will be
again Galveston. It is a heroic anc
brave undertaking. If they are as
brave and persistent as the Dutch and
as willing to spend money, there is no
reason why they should not succeed.
In their efforts they have the good will
and encouragement of the whole coun
try. Though when it comes to loaning
money because they are brave, hope
ful and enterprising, bravery, hopeful
ness and enterprise are not assets that
the money Ioaners are willing to ac

mands of the North Platte district to
satisfy, these are some of the burdens
which will rest upon the shoulders of
Senator Millard, of Nebraska, during
the coming session of congress. Be
sides the legislator is now past sixty
years of age.
Strange as it may seem Senator Mil
lard, hale, robust and vigorous, want
ed a senatorial toga in 1SS3. He came
to Lincoln and fought for it but the
prize was awarded General Charles F.
Manderson. Eighteen years ago Mr.
Millard was in the prime of life. In
his ripe old age. the position he so eag
erly sought came unsought, unasked,
The story of how a select delegation
went to Omaha and offered J. H. Mil
lard the North Platte senatorship on
a silver platter is political history too
recent to need repetition. But at last
the long senatorial deadlock was brok
en and the Omaha man was elected
without a dissenting vote by a band
of legislators, the majority of whom
had spoken his name for the first time
when they recorded their votes for
Then came the lucky man to Lincoln,
journeying by easy stages to thank the
members of a legislature for one of the
highest compliments that can be paid
to an American citizen. The personnel
of the two houses was to him an un
known quantity. Ezra P. Savage, who.
as lieutenant governor, presided over
the joint session, was the only man
connected with the. legislature who
had mixed in the struggle of 1S83.
Mr. Millard has been for many years
president of the Omaha National bank
and first became identified with that
institution in 1S66. It is in this posi-
matters can be utilized to the best pos
sible advantage.
The North Platte senator was born
on Canadian soil of American parents.
In his early youth his parents re
moved to Dubuque, Iowa. When he
was twenty years of age he set
tled in Omaha where he has remained
ever since.
The real estate business first claimed
his attention. After several years of
J M. O'Neal, mentioned as a likely
appointee as state oil inspector.
this work he became Interested In the
Omaha National bank. He first served
as cashier and then as president.
He served one term as mayor of
Omaha and with that exception has
never held u political office previous
to his elevation to the senate. After
his one strenuous and exciting race
for political preferment In 1SS3 he de
voted himself to business until a toga
was presented him last March.
At one time Mr. Millard was one of
the board of directors appointed by the
government to adjust the affairs of
the Union Pacific railroad.
Tht-re be some of the wise politic
ians who say that the man who will
be appointed to succeed Ed R. Slzer as
state oil Inspector will be J. M. O'Neal
of University Place, and If the for
tunes of war do give him this place It
will give pleasure to the many hun
dreds of republicans who know and
esteem him.
Mr. O'Neal Is a native of Iowa, and
a cousin of ex-Governor Drake. In
fact he comes from Drakevtlle. He is
forty years of age, and fifteen of those
two score he has spent as a traveling
man. In 1.SU1 he located In I-incaster
county. In t'nlverslty Place, where he
married a daughter of Postmaster S.
II. Iteesmau.
Mr. O'Neal has been an active and
energetic republican. The only official
connection he has ever had with poli
tics or office-holding was when he
served one year as secretary of the re
publican county committee.

lTI in Fremont the politicians are
having a warm round-up. ostensibly
over an article that recently appeared
in The Courier, but really because of
the jHstotHce trouble. In order to set
at rest the minds of the disputants It
may be stated that Mr. Richards had
no Intimation or knowledge that the
article was to be published nor did
any representative of the Courier dis
cuss the subject with Mr. Richards.
What It printed was well authenticat
ed gossip in political circles, and the
denial by Mr. Schneider of certain
statements therein in no wise changes
Its belief in the truthfulness of what
was printed. Mr. Richards has re
peatedly and to divers persons stated,
as Mr. Hammond says, that Mr.
Schneider has not kept faith with him.
Whether this is true or not is a ques
tion for those two gentlemen to settle,
although as an Impartial observer The
Courier Is compelled to state that
there are others besides Mr. Richards
who testify against Mr. Schneider In
this dispute.
It Is violating no confidence and not
misstating history to write down that
the senatorial fight bust winter was
largely a tight of the railroad political
managers. The most active men in
the scramble, the men who came here
early, opened up
headquarters a n d
stayed till the finish,
were railroad repre
sentatives, Burllng
lington. Union Pa
cific, and Elkhorn
men. attorneys and
others. A number
of the men who sup
ported Mr. Thomp
son's candidacy were
recognized and class
ified as Burlington
men. and all but
three of the nine
who were ranged
against Thompson
irrevocably were
classified as Elkhorn
or Union Pacific
men. Certain it is
that the backbone
they displayed was
largely furnished by
the men representing
those two roads here
in Lincoln last win
ter. It is no discredit
to the legislators to
list some of them as
railroad men. By
