With this issue The Tribune be
gins its twelfth year, having been
issued ten years as a weekly and
one year as a semi-weekly. Like
all other business concerns, the pa

during the past year, yet the editor
has not missed a meal for lack of
funds to pay for it, nor have the

not receive their pay promptly.
For these conditions the editor is
duly thankful; and he is also grate

Tbe paper will continue to make
its semi-weekly visits, and if the
present bright prospects for a re

will be materially increased in size.

E. B. Warner, ot this city, is
mentioned as a candidate for dele-
gate-at-large to the republican na
tional convention at St. Louis next
June. It is believed that Nebraska
will send a McKinley delegation to
that convention, and as Mr. Warner
was the only delegate from Nebras
ka who cast his vote for McKinley
in the convention ot 1892, it would
seem that the stand he took tor
the great protectionist at that time
should entitle him to recognition
when the selection of delegates to
the coming convention is made.
The list of aspirants for the re
publican nomination for congress
in this district is large and steadily
growing. Among those spoken ot
are some strong men and also some
mighty weak ones. What the re
publican convention should do is to
nominate the man who possesses
the ability to make a live, earnest
representative and who will also
poll the full vote of the party. The
Sixth district is. we believe, republican-by
a small plurality, and with
three tickets in the field a strong
republican candidate can win. even
though Governor Si is nominated
by the populists.
One of the most notorious green
goods swindlers, Vosburg, was dis
charged from custody the day be
fore Christmas in New York, where
he had been on trial for swindling
a Nebraska farmer out of 5500.
His lawyer made a plea for clem
ency based upon the ground that
his client had never sought to take
human life and he concluded by
saying: "In brief let the law be
merciful, and grant a suspension of
sentence on account of Christmas
and the crucifixion of our Lord."
Recorder Goff. that remarkable re
form official, actually barkened to
the plea and did discharge the no
torious swindler on the council's
promise that Vosburg should ab
stain from crime in the future.
Vosburg is an aged man whose lite
is a record of crime and who could
no more obey the law than he could
fly. It will probably not be thirty
days before he swindles another vic
tim. One remark of the recorder'?,
however, is worthy of notice. He
expressed the belief , that the far
mer who comes to purchase counter
feit money should be punished as a
felon. There is truth in this, but
that is no reason why Vosburg
should, have been turned loose upon
the community. Council Bluffs

THE CRISIS IS ENDANGERING THE
President Kramer Determined to Repel the
British by Force of Anns Sketch of Dr.
Jameson's Ufe Was the Prime BIoTez
Za the Ma tab el e War.
London, Jan. 2. A dispatch, from
The Hague to The Times says that the
Rotterdam Checoyrant regards Dr.
Jameson's action in the Transvaal as a
most flagrant example of British arro
gance. It admits that Holland can do
nothing for the Boers and fears that
Eoglandwill seize the opportunity to
wipe out the stain of the Majuba Hill
Incident. It also expresses the, hope that
Germany will come to the rescue.
The Berlin correspondent of The
Times says: "Thecriiis is clearly en
dangering the Anglo-German relations.
Public opinion is excited and angry and
without doubt the government will in
terfere because relations have gradually
arisen between the Transvaal and Ger

It is stated that President Kruger has
telegraphed to Colonial Secretary Cham
berlain pledging his government that
the Beers shall temporarily adopt a pas
sive attitude toward Dr. Jameson's
forces on its arrival outside of Johan
nesberg. An important feature of this
arrangement between Mr. Clamberlain
and President Kruger is that all respon
sibility for hostility will rest with the
chartered South Africa company.
Sketch of Dr. Jameson's Life.
Dr. Jameson, the leader of the party
of British South Africa company sym
pathizers now engaged, apparently in
an invasion of the Transvaal, is the ad
ministrator for the British South Africa
company's territory in Mashonal and
Matabele lands. He is the son of a
Scotch journalist and was educated for
the medical profession. But just as he
began to make his mark as a practi
tioner in Glasgow, he decided to go to
South Africa, and in the early '70s he
reached the diamond fields and soon ac
quired a high reputation and it remun
erative practice in the treatmont of ty
phoid malerial diseases as"camp fever,"
which is very prevalent in the South
Africa mining districts. In fact Dr.
Jameson was so successful that he was
upon the point of returning to Scotland
when he was persuaded by Mr. Cecil
Rhodes, the premier of Cape Colony, to
enter the service of the British South
Africa company, in which not only Mr.
Rhodes, but all his friends, are under
stood to bo largely interested.
CONFLICT IS EXPECTED DAILY.
President Krngcr Determined ta Repel the
British by Force of Arm.
Berlin, Jan. 2. A cable dispatch re
ceived here from Pretoria says a rising
has occurred at Johannesburg. It is
added that 300 more armed men belong
ing to British chartered company have
crossed the frontier and that President
Kruger is determined to repel the free
booters by force of arms. A conflict be
tween the Boers and England is expect
ed at any time.
In discussing the invasion of Trans
vaal by Dr. Jamison and the forces of
the British South Africa company, all
the newspapers here declare his action
constitutes a serious and unjustifiable
breach of the peace against which Ger
many must protest.
The National Zeitung remarks that
German interests demand the mainten
ance of the independence of the South
African republic, and it expects that the
government will vigorously defend and
come to President Kreuger's aid in case

the woman's home by the 14-year-old

tragedy was one of the most brutal ever
enacted under the gruesome sway of
dread judge lynch. Despite the plead
ings for her father's lifcof a half clad,
frightened child and the prayers and
tears of the ill and helpless woman, the
mob went through with its work with
cold blooded, cruel deliberation, and
only left when certain that both the
man and woman were dead. The
affair was the outgrowth of the old
story of a faithless wife and a revenge

PRESIDENTIAL DEMAND HONORED IN
FULL BY THE HOUSE.
Provides For an Issue of 3 Per Cent Bonds,
Emergency Measures Now Go to the Sen
ate Congresiional Proceeding In De
tail Spirited Dobate In tho Senate.
Washington, Dec. 29. When the
house convened today but three hours
remained for debate on the bond bill.
The vote by tho terms of the rulo under
which the house was operating was to
be taken at 3 o'clock. The attendance
was large. Mr. Brossius (Rep., Pa.)
opened the debate in favor of the bill.
The debate was closed for the respect
ive sides by Messrs. Crisp and Dalzell.
The former insisted that the bill was a
political measure really inten- em
barrass the treasury, while tter
said it was a plain business tion
to save interest. Mr. Dalzell ui tacked
the Carlisle interview of last night as a
violation of the decencies of public life.
At 3 p. m. a vote was taken on tho
first section, and resulted as follows:
Yeas, 169; nays, 136. Forty-seven Re
publicans voted with the Democrats
and Populists against the bill.
The second section of the bond bill
was then passed without a division.
HOUSE PASSED THE TARIFF BILL.
Designed to Raise 840,000,000 For the Be
lief of the Treasury.
Washington, Dec. 28. The house
yesterday responded to the appeal of the
president by parsing a tariff bill, tho
operation of which is limited to two
and a half years, and which is designed
to raise 40,000,000 for the relief of the
, treasury. The vote was on party lines
j with two exceptions. The special
order under which the bill was brought
to a vote at 5 o'clock, after three and a
half hours of debate, was ironclad in its
: character, and compelled the members
to adopt or reject it without opportunity
1 of offering amendments of any kind.
The bill as passed repeals the present
tariff law until Aug. 1, 1898. It restores
i 60 per cent of the McKinley rates on
wool and woolens, lumber and carpers
and makes a horizontal increase of the
present rates in all other schedules, ex
cept sugar, of 15 per cent. When the
bill was put upon its passage, it was
passed by 205 to 81, the vote being taken
by yeas and nays.
AGREED ON REORGANIZATION.
Resolution Passed In the Senate by a Ma
jority of Two.
Washington, Dec. 31. Tho commit
tees of the senate Monday passed into
the control of the Republican.-- The
change in the political complexion of
tho committees was effected by the
adoption of a resolution organizing the
committees as agreecLto by the Repub
lican and Democratic steering commit
tees. The Pcpulists, with the exception
of Mr. Kyle (S. D.), declined to vote
and the Republicans having a plurality
of the senate, were thus enabled to
adopt the resolution by a vote of 30 to
28. Mr. Kyle voted with the Democrats
against the reorganization. A 2-hour
debate followed the adoption of the reso
lution, the purposo of which was mainly
political. The Democrats, under the"
leadership of Senator Gorman, ably
seconded by Senator Harris, attempted
to show that the reorganization was
effected by an alliance between the Re
publicans and Populists, contending
that the silence of tho latter, making
possible the reorganization, indicated
acquiecence. He also insisted that the
Republican accomplishment of control
saddled them with responsibility for leg
islation. The Populists, led by Senator
Allen (Neb ) and Senator Butler (N.
C), denied that they were in any
fashion responsible for the result.
Before the reorganization, Henry Ca
bot Lodge, the senator from Massachu
setts who has made a brilliant reputa
tion as an historical biographer, deliv
ered an address on the Monroe doctrine.
Although temperate in language, he
took the ground that, unless we insisted
1 that Venezuela's dispute with Great
Britain should be submitted to friendly
arbitration, we would surrender the es
sence, spirit and vital principle of the
Monroe dectrine, which, he contended,
was as essential to the safety and wel
fare of the Americans as the balance of
power was to the safety and welfare of
i TO RESTORE THE GOLD RESERVE.
Resolution Introduced by Senator Sherman
to Protect Our Yellow Metal.
Washington, Jan. 1. The senate
held a 2-hcurs' session Tuesday, in the
' course of which a speech by Mr.
Mitchell on the restoration of the Mc
Kinley duties on wools was listened to
and a resolution was passed for the in
vestigation by the committee on naval
affairs of the prices paid by the govern
ment for ship armor. The resolution
contained a broad intimation that
officers of the government were inter
ested in armor plate processes. The
most important featuro of the session
perhaps was a resolution offered by Mr.
Sherman for th restoration of the gold
reserve, which hereafter should be held
sacred for tho redemption of the green
backs and treasury notes, the former to
be reissued only in exchange for gold
coin and bullion. Mr. Elkins asked for
the immediate consideration of a resolu
lution apropos of the anticipated bond
issue, declaring it to be the sense of the
senate that no bonds of the United
States should he sold at private sale or
by private Contract, but should be disr
posed of by advertisement to the highest
bidder. Hill (N. Y.) objected.
Oxnsrd Has No Hope.
Washington, Jan. 2. Henry Oxnard,
president of the Nebraska beet sugar
company of that name, left for New
York, after a careful canvass among
senators as to the possibility of securing
an amendment to the revenue bill now
in the hands of the finance committee
of the Benate. Mr. Oxnard is not san
guine that any legislation looking to a
betterment of beet sugar interests could
be enacted &t this evesios.
