llmt tlio president sustained the
navy department In the Sampson con
troversy, lie was a considerable sized
part of It up to a very short time be
fore the time of the occurrence, of
that bant tie.
One of the, reasons President I'oose
volt assigns for nlvliik" Sampson the
honors of the buttle, off Santiago Is
that he was In Klulit. of the buttle.
Well If all the other soldiers and snll
tirs had only participated In that bat
tle In the same, way (by belnn In

Those who think the supreme court
In t lis state mlnht decide on the con
stitutionality of the new election law
according to the constitution, should
be reminded that In nil probability,
tlvo of the Judges lit least will be can
didates for election on that Rame
t Icket on which they would he called
to pass. With the splendid precedents
of the. disregard of the qonstlutlon by
the. United States Rtipreino court be
fore them, does anyone think under
Mich circumstances they could keep
under Its restrletlons(V) Nevertheless
It might ho a good thing to let them
si low their baud at It.
President Roosevelt Is a very pow
erful man In all the affairs of this
country, hut if he thinks he can buck
l ho whole force of public, opinion on
tho Schley and Sampson controversy,
lie may tlnd that In some Instances at
least, It will bo the worse for Teddy.
There will no doubt bo plenty of so
ailed men who are willing to surren
der their right and capacity to think
to tho one man whom they have
fleeted to rule over them, that will
now change .nil their opinions on the
Uestlou Hut notwithstanding the
president's recommendation that the
Incident be closed It will rise to poster
him. lie may luivo the power to shut
off further process In t lie navy depart
ment, hut lie has not the power to
clnso the Incident before the forum
of tho people or In congress, there
are left In that body any who refuse
to become parasites and sat elites.
The Sterling .lournul speaks of a
scheme described In the liolnlt papers
where. It Is being tried, which Is cer
tainly to lie commended. It should
be as much the province of tlio pul
lie schools to teach economy and some
such practical habits which are es
sential to success in life as It is to
teach the dead languages, at least.
.Tho methods here, desorbed are about
as practical as can bo conceived.
The .lotirnnl Says: "The Keloid papers
tell about the establishment of the
public school savings bank system In
that town. On Friday afternoon of
ach week children will make depos
its with their teachers, of from one
cent up. Kadi child has a bank
I k. In which deposltsjire recorded
and blank cheeks are provided, to be
tilled out by the children, when they
desire to make withdrawals. The
money deposited by the children Is
placed In a bank down town. Over
thirteen dollars was deposited at He
lolt the II rst day and the children are
socager to save that the candy and
gum trade is said to be suffering,
The system tenches thoiightfulness.
Independence, frugality and thrift
for all children, especially boys, as
I hey have l'iriUent opportunities to
earn money by doing chores and run
ning errands. Kansas (,ly, Missouri,
children have over twelve thousand
dollars on deposit."
One thing which has not yet been
demonstrated In stale politics, but
soon will he, Is l.he return to power
of the l-eliind machine, llally will
lie the next republican candidate for
governor. Leland will again dictate
all tho appointments, lie and bis
gang will parcel out the stale patron
age, if the republicans are successful.
This Is not because the republicans
of the state so wish It, hut, it Is tt rst
because there Is no one else In the
slate the en,util of Leland In general
ship. Next It Is because, of the mis
erable failure of Hurrtou as a senator
siiid a leader, lie has surrounded
himself with the Wtenest crowd
that bus attempted to prey upon the
public fat. 1Mb appointments uro
too nasty to bo accepted by tho com
mon decency of tho peoplo. Of
courso In the composition of tho state
ticket ho and his coterie will bo giv
en a share. They uro too powerful
to bo Ignored, S' 't seems for one
of bis men on the t icket T T, Kelly
will be selected. Ho Is the man who
stands convicted by tho records of his
own county of having raised vouchers
and defrauded tho people. Taken
all together It does not make, much
difference, which gang Is on top. Le
land Is possibly not so filthy as Hurr
tou, but bo Is nioro tyrannical.
"NOT MUCH DECIDED.
Four delegates from Iteuo comity
attended tho populist conference at
Topekn on-Friday tho 21st. They
wero Hon. William Mitchell, C. 11.
Coplonud of Sumner township, L.
Kerrlck of South Iteno, and tho ed
itor of this paper. Wo wero all very
much surprised on reac.lng Topekn to
tlnd so much interest and so largo an
at tendance, Very few count leg were
not represented at all and most of
them hud full delegations. There
were more than three hundred attend
ing the conferonco and representative
hall was well lilted wit h delegates and
It was distinctively n populist pow
wow where everybody had a free
pitch In, got excited, called mimes,
made Invidious (list I net Ions and then
got good ualured again and went home
In good humor. It was lively enough
o make It Interesting for spectators,
and there was oratory enough to last,
and serve all purposes till the next
convent Ion. nly one man was seen
who went home mad. lie complained
because, the convnt Ion passed the pre
vious question before he got a chnnce
to make his speech. But it Is be
lieved that everyone else made at
least ono speech, and many two or
three, so on tho whole he had no good
ground to stand on.
There was only ono thing decided
by the conference, namely that the
party Is a unit on the proposition of
keeping Its organization. It was also
developed that It was almost unani
mous that a union with tho demo
crats should ho effected If possible.
Tho majority of tho committee on
resolutions were In favor however,
of allowing the democrats to
make the first, overtures, Inasmuch
us the committee had made some pro
positions to the democratic commit
tee which had been turned down. A
few were radical enough to denounce
fusion on any terms. None wero in
favor of going bodily Into (ho demo
cratic part v. Many were In favor of
voting a denioeratc ticket, If there
were no oilier way of getting together
and getting around the election law.
The report, of the majority of the
committee, as It was dually adopted
simply Instructed the. state central
conimt tee to call a state convention
not later than June 1st to nominate
astute ticket, and that a vigorous
campaign be made for the success of
the principles of the party, Tho mi
nority report contained more of detail
work. It recommended the holding
of tho populist convention, at the
sumo time and place as tho demo
cratic convention and then went on
with more or less Instruction as to
detail of a fusion arrangement. The
majority report was carried but only
by alMMit thirty majority ln"a vote of
more than three hundred.

A MODERN MIRACLE
Porfonned liy tin 1'aiiimie Father Jolin
Tlie N'ovoe Yrcuiya of Sept. 14 has
the folhwlng nccoant of a miracle per
formed by the famous leather Job of
Crtmrtadt: "On the 12th father John
arrived at tho village of 9oilno, con

Slowly nnd with greit effort the wo

John, 'and again.' With ever-increasing
faith the woman repeated tho
movement. 'Stand up,' said Father
John, and the woman arose. Then he
moved from his placj, bidding her fol
low. 'Now walk arouud me,' said
Father John, and the lately aeemlngly
dead womnn slowly approached and
fell on his shoulder, 'do and pray,'
sulil he, Mussing the woman. On this

Thero will ho a meeting of the deni
ocratlo central coniiultto for lteuo
county to he held In this clly at the
law olllco of the Hettinger Ilrothers
on March . 1st. . Called to order
promptly at 10 o'clock a. in. A
prompt and full attendance Is urged
Charles Oswald, Chairman,
S. S. (Irayblll, secretary.
Tho treachery, bypocracy and de-
cell of Lord I'auncofoto as cuibassu
dor representing the court of SI,
.lames at Washington, Is so plain that
the wonder Is at the delay of the ad
ministration In glvug him his pass
ports and notifying the lirlllsh prime
minister that a degraded scoundrel of
the raiinccfote typo cannot bo ac
copted by tho American people as a
suitable person to reprscent any for
eign country at Washington. And
vet wo all know that Lord I'mince-
fole has tlio average characteristics
of the so-called Kngllsh gentlemen.
Tho experience of the American pen
pie for more than a hundred years in
their dealings with tiroat lirllau has
taught them that honor with a lirll
lsh nobleman Is an unknown (inuti
lity. Wo have only to lccalClhe many
Incidents of tho war of isiii and the
Mason and Slldell Incident, during
our civil war. They are Instinctively
cowards and never go to war except
with a weaker power that they can
compter by an overwhelming numer
ical force, and then they often tlnd
themselves disappointed an In the
Transvaal where thlrty-llvo thusaud
I toe in have kept at bay over tow hun
dred thousand trained lirlllsh sol
diers. STATE LIBRARIAN.
The question of a new stato libra
rian Is now claiming the.'attentlon of
the supremo court. It Is probably
as well to lodge the power of tho ap
pointment of librarian with tho mem
bers of that body as they are the
principal patrons, but the library be
longs to the state. We alllhavo the
right to go there for Information.
Mrs. Dlggs has been librarian for
four years and her successor w ill have
a four years term. There can be no
objection to the management of Mis.
IMggs. The stato never had a better
librarian or one that look more pride
In the management. She was system
atic and painstaking about every
thing pertaining to her calling. She
is a lady of unquestionable ability
and rare culture.
Why tho distinguished members of
tlio supreme court should let party
dictation govern them In tills matter
Is past rinding out. It is tho highest
court in the slate, and supposed to be
above parly prejudice. We believe It
will lower the dignity of the body to
let party control them In the slightest
degree, in this matter We believe
too, that an overwhelming majority of
the people would favor the reappoint
ment of Mrs. IMggs, and we are quite
sure that the best Interest of the pub
lic servleo would be subservedby the
appointment of Mrs. Dlggs.
PUSir WANTS A CORNER.
The 'many distinguished ladies of
the women's rights fraternity deserve
great credit for their pluck und per
severance if nothing more. They or
ganlze and reorganize with each suc
ceeding year and have kept it up for
more than llfly years. The time may
come when all they have dreamed of
will be crowned with success, and the
lights of women to the election fran
chise on an equality with men recog
nized In every state of tho union.
Hut It will not come so long as they
continue to commit the folly of fas
tening their apron strings to the
Jacket straps of the republican party.
It is claimed for Mrs. Carrie Chap
inann Catt and other leaders of tbe
suffrage order that they are In full
sympathy with Ihe republican ad
ministration at Washington and are
loud In t heir praise of the republi
can parly. Wo are not permitted to
credit them with Ignorance of the
true policy of the republican parly In
their dealings with the people of the
Philippine archlpellgo in another
hemisphere. The territorial policy
of the republican party Is a Hat con
tradict Ion of the cardinal principles
of Ihe women's rights woman, since
they started out to make men belter,
and themselves tho equal of men In
It will be safe, to assume that Mrs.
Catt never made a speech that she
did not make use of the winds 'equal
ity before the law. I'nxallon
without, representation Is the rule of
a tyrant," and is Inconslstanl with
the forms and purposes of a republic."
Ifut the declaration of Indcendeiice
and the constitution are dead letters
when they stand In the way of the
masters of the republican parly, (In
trusts and the naioual banks. If
Pussy Catt can tlnd a warm corner In
the republican nest she must aban
don all hope for the triumph of prin
ciples as taught by Miss Anthony and
Mrs. Only Stanton.
FUSION A SUCCESS.
From this on to the tlmo of the
meeting of tho conventions opposed
to the republican party, our populist
friends will bo petted and fluttered by
tho republican press and street corner
orators. Every Intelligent populist.
must know from experience that the
best Interest, of tho count ry Is sub
served by doing tho contrary of any
thing recommended by a republican.
We commend the following extract
from an editorial in the Wichita
Honcon to a careful perusal: 'Mf there
are but two tickets oil the ballot, the
populist Is betrayed Into voting the
republican ticket Just as much as ho
Is Into voting the dciiiocraflo ticket.
He doesn't have to vote either but
may wrlto In names for every oillce
tlio only restriction being that ho
shall not wrlto In tho name of any
candidate already on tho ballot.
It Is this point to which the fusion
1st objects so seriously. Instead of a
convention bet raying n man the legis
lature has disfranchised hi in. To Il
lustrate: suppose the democrats nom
inate Senator Harris for governor,
Helng on the democrat lc ticket no
populist can support hi ni without
voting the democrat lo- ticket, He Is
a populist but there Is no method by
which a populist can cast a ballot for
1 1 1 in except to vote the democratic
ticket, The populUts cannot meet
In convention and nominate him be
cause If they do his name cannot
head both tickets, If a populist
would vote for Harris by writing his
name In the Independent column he
loses his vole because the same name
cannot appear twice on the ticket.
Now who has bet rayed tho populist?
Who has forced him to vote tho deni-
ocarlc ticket or loose his ballot?
Isn't It the republican legislature
which did this when they passed the
Vet curiously enough the republican
papers arc taunting the populists
