THE SATURDAY rVIOlIVTlVO COXJTCIISJ
(Continued from First Vayc.)
If anybody supiKwed that Walt Mason
has "written himself out," his contriini
tion to last Sunday 'h Journal, most
etToutualty quelled that idea. Walt Htlll
thinks thoughts, and his thoughts slido
down from his brain and on to paper
with an easo and effectiveness beautiful
to contemplate Tho prico ot tho Jour
nal is 0 ccntn; but Mr. Mason's tributo
to G. W. MoBhor last Sunday wan ulono
worth a good 10 to 1 quarter.
Of course it is any man's privilege to
pick up his hat and luavo when ho
doesn't like what's going on in meeting;
but it must seem to impartial observers
that Mr. Eldridgo, of thu A'ctr, ia carry
ing tho business to extremes when ho
refuses to eorvo on a republican com
mittco becauBO Messrs. 0. II. Oero, II.
D. Hathaway and Sam D.Cox, whom ho
uccubcb ot lighting tho typographical
union, aro on tho buiiio committeo.
Will Mr. Eldridgo refuso to brcatho bo-

Tho following 1h an oxtract from tho
telegraphic report of tho proceedings of
tho MethodiHt National Missionary con
ference, held at Minneapolis, which ap
peared in nearly every important daily
paper in tho country Sunday morning:
On tho call ot Nebraska Dr. Hunting
ton, ot Lincoln, read statistics showing
that there were many minlstcra in tho
conference whoso salaries were less than
8200 a -year. Nebraska, ho said, was
being tilled up with starved'out Now
Engianders who had been stranded by
tho financial depression. A hundred
'"thousand ot such from tho regions east
of tho Mississippi had como into tho
stato in tho past year, and tho priccB of
products ot tho ground weru going from
bad to worse. It had taken twenty
acres of wheat to put ftto Into a farmer's
wallet. In ono case that ho knew of an
honest Methodist tanner took 100
hushclBof wheat to tho elevator. It was
tho production of twenty acres of land.
All ho got tor it was Wl. With this ho
paid his tuxes and half of his grocery
bill and went homo without dinner ho
catiRo there was not a nickel left in his
pocket. These and similar stories pro
duced u profound impression, but all
the sumo tho appropriations were
scaled 10 to 15 per cent on last year's
Now, tho Rev. Mr. Huntington may
bo und doubtless is a very good man;
but ho ia foolish and ho talks too much.
Ho could not expect to gain anything
by his exaggerated account of isolated
caeca of deprivation and sutTcrlng in
this state, and tho report shows that ho
did not. Ho placed tho stato beforo tho
peoplo of tho country in a falso light,
and his talking is likely to result in in
jury to tho state. Having in mind tho
Van Wycks and tho Uurrowses and the
Aliens and tho Huntlngtous Tut:
CouiuF.n would Bay: "Save Nebraska
For several years past tho Cull has
been receiving tho afternoon roport of
tho Associated Press, through a special
arrangement with William Henry Smith,
until recently manager of that news
association. Within a week, however,
the Call has been admitted to fidl
membership, holding a regular fran
chise in the association, and it is now
receiving tho same day report that goes
to ho lice and other metropolitan
pupors. Tho Journal is a full member
of the United Press, receiving both tho
day and night rejxirt of that association,
so that tho Journal and Call between
them control the day reports of tho
principal news agencies.
There aro somo young men in this
country who aspiro to bo general secre
tary of a local Y. M. 0. A. who are ad
mirubly fitted for a position behind thu
ribbon counter of a second-class dry
goods store; but who aro of no earthly
uso in tho position of managor ot a
Young Men's Christian association.
Lincoln has had an experience with in
eftlciont, inane secretaries, and that tho
association lugged has not been at all
surprising. Hut tho now board of local
directors lately discovered a young man
in Denver who is going to cuuso a gon
oral turning up ot things in this city,
and who is going to mako tho Young
Men's Christian association mcasuro up
to tho highest Y. M. C. A. standard.
John K. Doano is a young man with
. manhood, forco and a tendency to got
there. Ho caino to this city October 20,
and ho brought all ot his good qualities
with him, und ho bus been using thorn
ovory duy sinco ho got hero in an en
deavor to pull tho association out of the
slough ot despond und place it up on tho
high bunk ot hope. And tho young
man Iihh succeeded to u degreo most
encouraging to tho friends of tho asso
ciation. Sinco tho 1st of January and up to the
time Mr. Doano fastened himself at tho
helm there wero two additions' to tho
membership ot tho association, Sinco
October 20 tlioro havo been over 40 now
Mr. Doano found a lot of jagged ends
sticking up in ovory direction. Ho
Binoothod tldngs down from tlio sturt,
and installed order and system whore
confusion hud held undisputed sway,
with very business-like rapidity.
In tho department of physical Instruc
tion there were ten or twelve jwrsons
enjoying tho privileges, and tho appli
ances wore in a wretched condition,
Things were straightened up, and now
thoro aro upwards of soventy peoplo in
regular attendance. I), V, Hohrer is tho
physical Instructor, and Miss Anna ltarr
lias charge of tho ladles' classes, which
moot Monthly, Wednesday and Friday
from 10 to 12 a. in. Hoys' classes aro
held from 1 to G p. in. Tuesday and
Thursday, and Saturday from 10 to 12
u m. Huslncss mon's classes aro hold
daily from 5 to 0 p. in., and thoro is a
general class ovory evening from 8 to 0
Professor F. W. Taylor has boon In
duced to take tho management of the
Current Topic club, which will occupy
an Important place in tho bcIioiiio ot
rejuvonution. This club will hold its
first meeting November 20, und will
meet ovory two weeks thereafter in tho
association parlors. Professor Taylor
has u choice collection of wheels in his
head, und ho will uso his entiro assort
ment of mental machinery for tho proper
development of the Current Topic club.
Tho club will deal with live issues in a
live way, and it will bo a live club.
And music. A glee club ot eight
voices has been organized. The mem
bers are: It. A. Williams, J. A. Perkins,
11. R. Ricketts, L. A. Uumstend, F. E.
Reagan, Charles Jones, W. II. Tut tie
and R. A. Clapp. Tho class meets every
Monday. Thoro Is also an association
orchestra ot thirteen pieces. Professor
II. J. W. Seamark will have a male
chorus under his charge, which will
meet weekly. Tho chorus will bo open
to ull members.
Mr. W. E. Hardy has consented to
engineer a class in social economy, wliich
will hold its ilrst meeting November 27,
and will alternate thereafter with the
Current Topic club.
Mr. E. C. Hardy will conduct u Chuu
tuuquu circle, commencing November 21.
Thero will also bo common law lectures,
lectures on chemistry, physiology, etc.,
und numerous entortiinmouts during
tho winter. All of which proves that
the ussociution is now very much alive.
A philosopher says: "Thero aro three
things which a good woman ought to
resemble in ono particular, but not in
another. Thus, sho ought to bo like tho
snail, wliich always keeps in the house,
but sho should not copy its example in
putting all sho possesses on hor back.
She should resemble the echo, which
never speaks unless spoken to, but sho
ought not, liko the echo, always try to
have the last word. Lastly, she ought
to bo true and correct as the town
clock, but she ought not. like the clock,
to mukc noise enough to be heard ull
over tho town."
Tho prospect ot tho early establish
ment of a brand-new daily newspaper in
Omaha, and tho current incidental
gossip concerning the sumo, have tended
to direct attention to tho two pupors
that now occupy tho metropolitan Held.
There is, in many ways, a marked
difference between the lice and tho
World-Herald. Tho former has a
definite editorial policy, which is tho
uplifting and glorification of its editor,
Mr. Rosowutor. Tho World-Herald
hasn't any policy at all. Thoro is tin old
copper 2-cont piecointho World-Herald
ofllce, nml every morning Mr. Hitchcock
throws tho coin up into tho air. If it
comes down head up, ho directs tho
chief editorial writer to writo a demo
cratic loader. If it's tails, liko Squire
O'Grady, who on certain occasions
always called for broiled bones, Mr.
Hitchcock calls for a red-hot, anti-cup-italiBt,
semi-anarchist, populist screamer.
Somo times tho coin disappears in u
crude or drops into tho mucilago pot,
und then tho editors writo about tho
future of American doddle drums, or
tho peculiar whiteness of now laid snow,
or somo such diverting subject.
Another diireronco is that tho lice w
muking inonoy und thu World-llcrald
is losing money. If tho current reports
concerning thu latter aro true, it is only
a question of timo whoii Mr. Hitchcock
will bo compelled to part with his 2-cont
piece, und then tho editorial page ot his
paper will bo oven more of u curiosity
than it is now. It is suid that the lice
at tho close of lust your, after paying all
expenses, including interest on tho lice
building mortgago, which by tho way, is
at tho low rato of 5 per cent, had a not
profit left over or 852,000. On tho other
hund it is roportod thut Mr. Hitchcock
who started in with an ambition to bo a
newspaper man und a capital of some
thing liko 8750,000, has spent ull ot his
money that ho can got at, and Is yot fur
short of his ambition. It comes from
un authentic source that Mr. Hitchcock
has mortgaged his property till ho can't
mortgage it any more, und thut tho
money has all gono into the yawning
chiism in the business otllco of the
World-Herald, which, with Oliver
Twlstiun persistence, is ever demanding
Tho principal obstaclo in thu way of
tho World-Herald' a success has been
its lack of editorial stability. Mr.
Hitchcock Is naturally a republican, and
If tho lice hud been u deinocrullc paper
his paper would havo been republican
in politics. Ah It Is It has been nothing,
and with some of the ablest newspaper
men tn the. state on its stall, it has
signally failed to command that respect
necessary to tho success or a metropoli
tan newspaper. Rosmvater's methods
aro not along angelic lines; but they aro
aU right from tho business standpoint,
His paper has always had an aggressive
K)llcy; it is always lighting for or
against something, and it has weight.
A now republican paper in Omaha
may jmsslbly materially weaken Rose
water so far as nls inllttence In tho re
publican party is concerned; but it will
hardly succeed in "knocking out" tho
llcaw a newspaper.
Most peoplo move along In ruts and
they aro so deep down that they cannot
seo over tho sides. Those persons
whoso rut novor brings them to the city
library havo no idea of tho work and
scope of this most useful Institution,
and lire unaware of the good it is doing
in u quiot way. They aro consequently
unaware of tho excellent Held for tho
benevolent and philanthropic and pub
lic spirited that exists here.
Thero aro fi.OOO people who regularly
patronize tho city library. During tho
month of October over 0,000 books wero
circulated among patrons and nearly
1,000 reference books wero examined in
the library. Thero me in the neighbor
hood of 10,000 volumes in the library,
and the institution is run in a most
olllcleut manner by Miss Dennis and
The city, with characteristic muni
cipal generosity, contributes tho
measley sum of 8800 per year for tho
purchase of books, and as there is no
other source of income, the annual ad
dition to the cloth and leather covered
packages of thought is not sufllciontly
large to throw any particularly favor
able light on Lincoln's enterprise hi tho
direction of the development of things
There Is no desire in any quarter to
bring any of Lincoln's wealthy citizens
to an untimely end; but it is a pity that
some of them who aro going to die soon
could not bo induced to agree to mako
a bequest to tho city library, wliich ac
cording to tho admittedly unorthodox
standard of Tin: Coumkii would bo
much better than dispatching a lot ot
money to a far otT and wooller country
than ours for the benellt of a lot ot
heathen who do not know the dif
ference between a ham sandwich and
the book of common prayer. Money is
bequeathed to every conceivable object
and sent away to all sorts of impossible
places; but somehow the peoplo who
have money to give away and who havo
made up their mind to die, never think
of tho city library that Is doing more
good tn the youth of tho city than nine
tenths of the so-called charitable and
benevolent institutions that are so
geneiously supported. If thoie is any
one Institution in Lincoln doing a more
important work than thut of the city
library it bus escaped Tiik Couiiikic'h
notice, and it has to struggle along on
8800 a year. Inn city tho size of Lin
coln tho public library should spend
from 82.500 to 8.r,0X)n year for new books.
When tho good peoplo of this city get
time it is to be honed that the public
library will come in for its proper share
of favorable consideration.
Tin; Call occasionally recognizes an
ubsurd spectaclo when it sees it, as is
munifest from tho following: "Another
of those remarkable antics with which
from time to time tho excise board is
wont to ainiiso tho public, was cu by it
yesterday in the finding that the charges
against Ofllcer Kucera of doing elec
tioneering work while on duty wero not
proven. It tho excise board wanted
Kucora to work for Fred Miller, or if it
did not want him to do it and he did it
of his own uccord, it was nothing very
serious. If tho excise board did not
want to discipline Kucoru it was foolish
to allow itself to be drawn into it by tho
nowspupers or anybody else. Rut after
it hud undertaken it and he declared
that ho made tho distribution of Millers'
tickets a hutiincss, that he took some
out with him in tho morning when ho
wont out on his beat and gave them to
anybody who appeared to want them
all day long, then tho board Is making
a very amusing spectacle of itself to
declare that the charges wero not sus
tained, in fact it looks very much us If
Kucera's suspension' was simply to give
him u few days for uninterrupted elec
tioneering work. The only other ex
plutmtion is that tho hoard felt that
when Kucera went on tho stand and
swore thut ho wns distributing tickets,
thoro was no further proof necessary to
show thut ho wus not." Comment by
Tiik Coukikk is unnecessury.
Tho fall of thu year is a trying season
for elderly people. The many cheerless, '
dark, dismal days net depressing!-, not I
to say injuriously, on hoth old und
young. Now is the timo to rounfoiee
tho vital energies with Ayer's Sarsa
paiillii thu hest of all hlood medieiues.
