party for the last two months; the re

place that he has spoken he has shown
up the policy of the fusion party and
greatly reduced its vote, thereby secur
ing the legislature though we failed to
elect the state ticket. No man in the

worthy than M. L. Hayward. He will

The York Times starts the ball rolling
on reform in our Australian ballot, and
none too soon. A cursory glance at the
ballot of last Tuesday by one unacquaint

him with amazement. Here was a bal
lot containing some seven tickets, three
of which contained the same names for
state, congressional and county candi
dates, giving the parties to this fusion an
aadae advantage over any other party in
the field. It is perhaps impossible to
prohibit or prevent fusion, but the fusion
ticket should be under one party name
r emblem, and be so printed on the
ballet, that all parties may have an equal
chases with the voters. la other words,
the candidate's name should not be
printed more than once on the ballot,
and the printing of the separate tickets
ef the parties to a fusion should not, in
fairness, be permitted, and the wonder is
that the honest voters have submitted
to this outrage so long. Beatrice Ex

The complete returns of the election
in Nebraska afford an interesting study
in political arithmetic Viewed from an
entirely unbiased standpoint they con
tain a wholesome lesson for politicians
of all parties. In many respecU the fig
ures are fall of surprises, even to those
who constantly move in the political at
mosphere. While experience had taught that pres
idential elections create the most wide
spread interest and draw ont the largest
number of voters it was confidently ex
pected that the battle of 1898, involving
tbe election of a United States senator
and a foil congressional and state ticket
would almost rival in popular interest
the contest of six years ago, if not of
two years ago. The returns show an un
precedented drop. The total vote polled
in 1892 was 210,000; in 1898 it was
230,000; in 1897, when there were only
one Supreme judge and two regenta to
elect, it was 200,000. This year the
total vote will fall nearly 10,000 below
that of 1897.
Tbe total vote polled for the republi
can and fusion candidates for supreme
judge last year was 191,837, while the
total vote polled in 1898 for the repub
lican and fusion candidates for governor
is in round numbers only 190,000. With
a steady growing population there has
been a decrease in the total vote of over
40,000 as compared with last year, when
the election involved comparatively no
momentous issue. Manifestly this
marked contrast in the total vote must
be ascribed to popular indifference and
Where this disaffection is most pro
nounced can be readily judged by com
paring the vote on governor in 1896 and
1898. In 1896 Holeomb, as fusion can
didate for governor, received 116,415
votes, while in 1898 Poynter, fusion can
didate, received only 96,703. In other
words the fusionists cast nearly 20,000
less votes for governor this year than
they did two years ago.
In 1896 MacColl, the republican can
didate for governor, received 94,723
votes out of a total of 211,138 votes cast
for the fusion and republican candidates
for governor, while Hayward this year
polled 93V281 out of a total of 189,964
for the fusion and republican candidates
for governor. The vote of MacColl ex
ceeds that of Hayward by only 1,402,
while the vote of Poynter falls 19,712
below that of Holoomb. Compared with
last year, the vote for Hayward exceeds
that of Jndge Post by 472, while the
vote of Poynter falls below that of
Judge Sullivan 6,125.
In a nutshell, the fusionist defection
was nearly 20,000 from their high water
mark of 1896 and 6,125 from their record
of 1897. The republican loss was only
1,402, as compared with 1896 and their
positive gain over last year 4272. In the
shrinkage of votes betweeu 1690 and leoe
the absolute loss of the fusionists to the
republicans was 2,870, while their loss
through the stay-at-home vote equalled
Whether these disaffected voters can
even be again rallied to the fusion
standard under any circumstances will
depend upon the course pursued by the
republican party from now on. If the
republicans hew to the line, live up to
their pledges, confer honors only upon
men of integrity and ability in touch
with the people, the complete redemption
of Nebraska to republicanism in 1900 is
assured. Omaha Bee.

The opposition were really lacking a

For Tks Joubjial.
There have been many explanations
of what is known as the "problem of the
sphinx." The sphinx are found mostly
hi Egypt, and are of various sizes and
forma. Some are single, others in pairs.
The lighter ones have wings. The pairs
are lying down, one having the form of a
lion or lioness, the other representing a
ram or lamb. Male rulers erected the
masculine one, and female rulers the
other. These illustrate the language
that says: "The lion and the lamb shall
lie down together and a little child shall
lead them." This is symbolical of the
age of constant day.
Animals like the lion, that see by the
dark rays, become in a measure blind
and docile, and will play around like a
lamb when led. The great sphinx are
hewn from the solid rock, and are 172
feet 6 inches long, and 56 feet high. In
front of the lion k a base-relief in the
form of a child. The inscriptions on the
sphinx mean the nn on the horizon,"
or light without the sun showing himself,
or a representation of the Aurora, or
Dawn, or Daphne, or Hemera,or JEoe or

Southern Europe waa called "Saturnia,"
which literally meant "land of plenty,"
or "a land flowing with milk and honey."
During such an age "there was no king,
and every man did what was right." In
such an age every variety of tree and
bush showered upon the ground like
manna its fruits. The vegetables and
grains volunteered on every field. Such
age was a veritable Eden garden bowers.
During such an age man is said to
have ereoted golden images of adoration
to mark its time, as well aa such statues
as the sphinx. Daring the hieroglyphic
age the sphinx waa represented also by
two hieroglyphics as names for the
earlier picture names or statue names.
One hieroglyphic was called "Neb,"
which meant lord, or force, or power.
The other hieroglyphic waa called "Akar"
which meant intelligence. A representa
tion of the power of intelligence, or the
inventions of civilization over tbe ferocity
of brute force. Tbe sphinx also has a
representative in the English "Lion and
the Unicorn." E. J. Couch.

Paxis,Nov. 22. The United States
peace commisrioaers have undoubtedly
made their final proposition here. The
conference opened yesterday afternoon,
Judge Day addressing Senor Bios and
his ooUeaamee of the Spanish commis
) ak, recurred to the protracted nego
tiations and reaffirmed the desire of the
commissioners to reach an amicable
eonolusion. Then handing the Ameri
can presentation to the interpreter,
Judge Day concluded his remarks by
saying that the Americans, preferring
not to break the armistice or resume
hostilities, had determined to present
another and final proposition, which he
hoped would lead to a speedy and ami
cable adjustment. That portion of the
representation setting forth the new
proposal, the proposal that the United
States must have poososaion of the en
tire Philippine archipelago, with a ten
der of 120,000,000 for a treaty cession of
the islands, was then read. Without
betraying their mental attitude tks
Spanish commissioners suggested nn
.adjournment until Wednesday.
Spain's Proposal Bajectad.
Spain's proposition to mvoke the of
fices of a third power to construe the
words "control, dispositien and gov
ernment of the Philippines." was re
jected by the American commissioners
on the ground that the distinction of the
thud article of the protocol dealing
with the Philippines, is so broad and
clear as to afford no justification for ar
bitration as between the parties to the
An analysis of the American memo
randum shows that all other sugges
tions and other considerations hinge
upon treaty cession at the amount
named by the United States and within
two weeks. In the event of cession
Spain may enjoy for a term of 12 years
rights of commerce in the Philippines
equal to those of the United States.
If the United States acquire the islands
by conquest Spain may not enjoy such
Should Spain refuse cession she
would remain liable for indemnity
claims, national and individual, since
the outbreak of the last Cuban insurrec
iton. Should she refuse she woxld also
lose, probably, as further indemnity for
the expense of conquest one of the Caro
lines, which she may now sell, and
other cable privileges within Spanish
jurisdiction might be taken by the
United States without any return to
Spam for them.
Last evening the Spaniards, doubt
less, did not know whether they will ac
cept or reject the American terms.
They telegraphed the substance of
the American memorandum to Madrid
and they expect a reply at Wednesday's
Possibly they may 'conclude that be

"What do the Filipinos think of the
American proposal to purchase the
islands?" Ageoncillo was asked.
"The opinion of the Filipino govern
ment cannot be favorable to it," he
answered, ''as they cannot allow them
selves to be bought and sold like mer

moderate indemnity is that their re
cognition and peace be established, I do

in 1887 remain almost unchanged. The
negotiations have been conducted with
tbe utmost secrecy. It is expected that
the effect of the treaty will have an
important political influence for the re
moral of a long standing friction be
tween the two countries. The treaty
it is noticed was concluded during the
absence of Emperor William from Ger
many and there is much speculation re
garding its probable results upon the
Rons, Nov. 22. The conclusion of the
Franco-Italian treaty came as a thunder
clap. Looking to the hitherto strained
relations between Paris and Borne, the
treaty may be considered the most im
portant international event as regards
Italy since the conclusion of the triple
Wfal Tri oT'tho Admiral Dawoy.
Boston, Not. 22. Admiral Dewey,

the act of congress authorizing the

Troops to Caoa.
Wasbtk ores. Not. 22. The war de
partment has found that it is imprac
ticable to occupy Cienfuegoa before
January 1, and Major General Wilson,
commanding the First corps, which waa
designated to occupy Cienfuegoa, has
been directed to make such disposition
of the troops that were about to sail aa
in his judgment, will best serve the in
terests of the army. It has been found
that there are now 19,000 Spanish
troops at Cienfuegos and that more
Spanish troops are to be sent there so
that the Spanish garrison cannot be re
moved in time for occupation by the
American troops on or about Dec 1.
The preparations thus far made do not
indicate that the United States author
ities are in any great hurry about send
ing troops to Cuba. No ships for trans
ports have been assembled at Savan
nah and no orders have been issued for
the quartermaster's department to send
transports to southern points for the
embarkation of troops to Cuba.
atallotta Waa a ruw,
Chicago, Nov. 22. The Paris bulletin
sent out shortly after noon on Monday
announcing that Senor Montero Bios
had refused to continue the peace ne
gotiations was not sent from Paris by
the correspondent of the Associated
Press. It was noc sent with his knowl
edge or by his agent. The message was
received over the wires of the Cam
pagnie Francaise des Cables Tele
graphique (the French Telegraphic
Cable company) and it appears on in
quiry that the cable sheet handed in at
the Paris office was indorsed in the
name of the Paris correspondent of the
Associated Press. The cable company
was imposed upon. In reply to a spe
cial message of inquiry the Paris corre
spondent of tto associated Press says
regarding the tofletiu: "I have sent
no such statement. It is declared, too,
by the Spanish commissioner to be un
true. Has the Associated Press been
imposed upon by stock jobbers?"
Will Have a Ball Fight.
Denver, Colo., Nov. 22. The enter
tainment committee of the national
live 'stock convention, to be held here on
Jan. 24, today received a letter from a
prominent breeder of Spanish bulls in
the state of Jalisco, Mex., offering to
bring four thoroughbred fighting toros
and five experienced matadors, three
men and two women, to Denver on this
occasion and give a "grand corrida"
after the old style. The committee is
serionsly considering the matter and if
it can see its way clear and can secure
an arena sufficiently large to hold 50,000
people the Mexican's proposition will
probably be accepted.
Temple Will Be Released.
Washington, Nov. 22. The case of
the American railroad conductor who
has been held under arrest in Mexico
for killing a man has been satisfactorily
adjusted. United States Minister Clay
ton has reported to the state depart
ment by telegraph that the Mexican
minister for foreign affairs had agreed
to stop further proceedings against
Temple under the Mexican law and
surrender the man to the Arizona
authorities on extradition proceedings
on Mr. Clayton's statement that he
would be tried in Arizona.
Sports la a Ferment.
New York, Not. 22. The sporting
element in this city, which is being
augmented hourly by new arrivals, is
in a ferment over the coming meeting
between James J. Corbett and Thomas
Sharkey. The fight, which is to take
place tonight before the Lenox Athletic
club, will certainly go on without any
interruption by the police authorities.
Both participants are in the best pos
sible condition for the encounter, and
while each seems confident of viotory,
Corbett is still the favorite among the
majority of sporting men.
Filipinos Want Damage.
San Francisco, Nov. 22. At the
Palace hotel in this city are registered
a number of Filipinos. They came di
rect from Manila and are en route to
Washington. The party is composed
of the following: Calndio Beina, Pedro
Y. Bungue, JuanaMantella, E. B. Bun
gue, Amelia Mellizo and Messrs. Angue
and Miguel Corte. The object of the visit
to the United States now is to present
urge claims for damages before the
president iind cabinet. The damage,
they assert, was incurred owing to the
recent war with Spain.
