SENATOR SHERMAN of Ohio has been
elected president pro tern , of the senate.
Carlisle of Kentucky , speaker of the
house of representatives.
THE great , palpitating heart of the de

a republican senator being elevated to

THERE seems to be slight cause , if
any , for anxiety concerning the presi
dential succession. Grover is enjoying
his accustomed robustuous health. Our
democratic brethren can , we imagine ,
content their souls in peace.
THE public debt has increased , ac
cording to the treasurer's report , some
four and a half millions during the
month of November. The democratic
administration of economy and reform
seems to be getting in its work.
WILLIAM II. VANDERBiLTthe , great
est railroad magnate of the age , died
suddenly at his residence in New York
city , yesterday afternoon. No one but
President Garrett of the B. & 0. was
present at the time of his death , which
came without premonition. Cerebral
hemorrhage was the cause.
IT is alleged that the new state of
Dakota will proceed , when admitted , to
erect a coat of arms on which the motto ,
"By God the people rule , " will be in
scribed. The Butte ( Montana ) Miner
thinks there is a rough sound to the
sentiment and suggests the substitution
of "through" for "by"as the opening
THE unanimous nomination of Gen-
. eral Logan by the republican senatorial
caucus , Friday , was a surprise fully as
great as his declination , with thanksof ,
the honor , to those who have been read
ing the guesses of the smartVashing \ -
ington correspondents and the metro
politan editors. Evidently the republi
can senators hav'nt been talking much
to newspaper men.
THE petticoat by the late elections
may be said to have become the ' ori-
flaimne of British politics. The Baron
ess Burdette-Coutts secured the elec
tion of her young Philadelphia ! ! hus
band to parliament by a majority of H- ,
250. Toung and pretty "Primrose
Leaguers' " canvassed the Marleborn
district for Lord "Charley" Beresford ,
the young naval hero of Egypt , and he
was returned at midnight by a majority
of 954. Mr. T. P. O'Connor's New
York wife also busied herself with his
Liverpool electors , and it goes without
saying that Lady Randolph Churchill
contributed largely to the comparative
success of her husband in Birmingham
and to his victory in the swell West End
constituency of Paddington.
THE poor , despised mugwump re
ceives the following consolation from
the Philadelphia Times , which certainly
places that rara avis in a much more
favorable light than other metropolitan
papers are wont to put :
The mugwump is the most fortunate
of all men in politics. He has no par
ty ; he cares for no party ; he wants no
no office ; he courts no party's favor ;
he simply owns himself and thinksaots ,
and votes as lie pleases. He is the
logical growth of the independent press
that public abuses have created , and ,
instead of his tribe growing less , it nev
er was so large in numbers as it is to
day , and it will grow larger each year un
til a radical revolution shall be wrought
in our political methods. And so far
from the parties drifting away from the
counsels and votes of the mugwumps ,
they will be more sought for by the
small politicians who now decry them , in
futuie contests than in the past. They :
arc the power of the debatable states , ]
because they can defeat bnd candidates
in cither party : and the first inquiry the. >
politicians will make in New York and
Pennsylvania , next year , when .about to .
nominate tickets , will be to ascertain
the attitude of the mugwumps. The
mugwump is no 'mere eruption on the
body politic. He is a logical creation ;
he Is here because he is needed , and he
] ias come to stay. >
W. C. T. U.
The W. C. T. U. and llefonn Club met ,
according to appointment , at the Congrcga-
I tional church , and , although it was so cold
and blustering outside , and not very temper-
! ate inside , ( though known as a strict , temper
ance meeting ) still it was an occasion of gen
eral surprise to see so many at the meeting ,
real , earnest workers , too. After the sing
ing , and prayer by Kev. Hall , then singing
again , the real business of the meeting began.
J. E. 13crgcr delivered his salutatory in a
pointed , practical , one-minute speech ; then
called on J. E. Cochran , who attacked the
liquor party in their own fortificationagainst
sumptuary laws , and showed that the matter
of license , which is prohibition to a certain
extent , the whiskey party , by their own acts ,
virtually abandon their pet notions of indi
vidual freedom. Mr. Cochran was followed
by Kev.Dungan and other volunteer speak
ers , both ladies and gentlemen , and the meet
ing took a decidedly business turn. After a
recess of ten minutes , the secretary being ab
sent , G. W. Miukler was nominated and
chosen secretary pro tem. A committee was
next chosen to confer with R. O. Phillips of
the Lincoln Land Co. , in order to secure , if
possible , the donation of a lot on which to
erect a building to be used for a reading room.
The following were chosen on this conference
committee : J. E. 13erger , J. E. Cochran and
T. 13. Campbell , to which , on motion , was
also added the president and vice-president
and Mrs. ( ! eo. Hocknell of the. W. C. T. U.
A committee on program , with instructions
to report immediately , was next chosen.
Messrs. Dungan and Cochran being selected ,
who appointed a committee on music , con
sisting of Mrs. T. B. Campbell , Miss Mescrve ,
Mrs. T. S. Uohley and F. M. Kinmiell. AIo
a commute on entertainment , viz : Mrs. P.
Boyle , Miss Thomas and E. II. McCormick ,
who were instructed to report to the chairman
by Saturday ne t. K. S. Cooley , who believ
ed with Horace Grceley that "the way to re
sume is to resume" was hi favor of taking
immediate steps to secure a reading loom
for this winter , by renting somesuitablo room
and furnishing it with papers and magazines.
T. B. Campbell and others spoke to the same
purpose , and Messrs. Cooley and Campbell
were chosen a reading room committee. It
is understood that the reading room will be
furnished with an organ. There was also an
informal agreement to meet hereafter at 0:30
o'clock , M. T. Announcement was made that
the Baud of Hope and Temperance Cadets
would meet next Saturday at 2 o'clock at the
Congregational church. Adjourned.

THE SILENT GUILLOTINE. Since
Sunday last , the Denver & Rio Grande
road has discharged about forty con
ductors , and tliu few remaining do not
know how soon they may be called up
on to vacate. It is stated that for
some weeks a part } ' of detectives have
been at work shadowing every conduc
tor , not only iu his business matters ,
but paying close attention to his habits
ilso. This wholesale exodus is the re
sult of their reports. As usual no
charges were made , and their inquisi-
ive friends were advised to ask no
uistiois. ! One spotter was captured
n th.'j train between Leadville and
Salida and quite roughly handled by
.he men before he was dropped at the
alter point , where the railroad men
vere thoroughly posted aa to his busi1
less. A few men have also been '
Iropped from the South Park road with-
ut an explanation.

Onjiis trip to Illinois , last week , E.
F. Stephens of the Crete Nurseries ,
sold four car-loads of two and three-
year-old apple trees , to the Illinois nur
serymen. This is one more proof of the
superiority of Nebraska soil and climate.
Who would have thought , ten years ago ,
that Nebraska could grow better and
cheaper trees than Illinois. Would it
not be better for farmers to purchase
these trees at first hands rather than
pay eastern men two freights and good
profit on them ? D. K. Bell , general
agent , represents the above firm at Mc-
\Yc see that Kilpatrick Bros , of the
Circle-W ranch on the Frenchman arc

of the state are feeding smaller bunches
at various points , east of here , and not
a few are doing the same at home.
