WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1893.
Judge Thurston's eloquence will
not.be htord in the United ' States
senate until 1896, "bat i t "is sure , to
be then if he is alive. He is the
man to succeed Man derson .
Thi solution to the Nebraska
senatorial problem was solved at
Washington, not at Lincoln. The
Sressure brought to bear upon the'
emocratic members of the legisla
ture bj Gorman, Brice and Whitney
made the solution possible.
Charles Cameron, a Hastings
merchant whose store was closed by
creditors on Monday of last week,
and who mysteriously disappeared
the same evening, was found Satur
day on the outskirts of the city
dead. He had died of exposure.
It is generally conceded that
Judge Neville was knocked out in
the senatorial fight by the strong
opposition of the A. P. A., it being
openly talked on the streets of Lin
coln that the Judge was the recog
nized Catholic candidate. Had it
not been for this talk he would have
undoubtedly beea elected.
W. H. Dech, the prominent inde
pendent leader, took a dose of poison
Friday night at his room in Lincoln
but by prompt medical aid his life
was saved. It is not known whether
he took the poison with suicidal
intent. In his room was found a
letter directed to his son, in which
he told him that his heart had been
troubling him, and he should not
be surprised to hear of his death -at
any time.
The place for the pin in the
Lincoln county publishing con
troversy is in the fact that commis
sioners Murphy and Hill had an
opportunity to save the tax-payers
the som of (1200 last year, which
they unwisely refused to do. The j
same opportunity presented itself to
Hill and Diehl this year, but they
refused to embrace it. But there is
no need of rehearsing the matter,
for the people of the county know
that the reform board has expended
over $2,000 in transactions which
can only be regarded as very shady.
. Prof. Goldwik Smith, who livea
in Canada, and who has made a
special study of this annexation
question, says that a majority of the
people of the Dominion are in favor
of political union with this country.
Tne average intelligent person on
this side of the line will be apt to
think that this is an exaggeration
However, if this is true, or anything
like the truth, it will be definitely
known before long. Anythtng
which half, or even a third, of the
people. of a. free countrv want wil
become ajrery live issue at once, and
a war will auicklv be found to
secure a vote on it. Canada wil
vote on the annexation question
when it reaches the burning stage
The Tribune ventures the opin
ion that senator-elect Allen will
carry the patronage of Nebraska in
his vest pocket, and that demo
cratic office-seekers will not be rec
ognized. The complexion of the
United States senate will not be
highly satisfactory to Cleveland,
especially when Hill and Murphy
stand ready to knife him at oppor
tune moments. The president may,
and undoubtedly will, need senator
Allen's vote on the confirmation of
appointees, and receiving it, it is
only proper that he should recipro
cate the favor by giving the senator
the 'distribution of the Nebraska
patronage. 'On this theorv the
democratic aspirants for the North
Platte land office will be excusable
for s swishing' out their handker
chiefs and drying their eyes.
At high noon yesterday the legis
lature elected Judge Allen, populist,
United states senator by a vote of
seventy, that being the combined
strength of the democrats and inde
pendents. There could scarcely be
any other result expected after Mon
day, when the five democrats 'who
have been hanging to Boyd and
Morton issued their declaration to
the effect that if the republicans
did not unite with them on tfoyd or
Morton they would cast their votes
for Allen. This proposition was
not accepted by the republicans, and
tne declaration was carnea out.
The senator-elect is regarded as a
man of more than average ability,
and it is said that prior to coming
to Nebraska he was a democrat.
Upon becoming a resident of this
state he entered the republican ranks
and two years ago deserted that
party and became an independent.
llis vote in the senate will un
doubtedly be counted with the dem
ocrats. Considerable excitement was
created at the Pine Ridge Agency
Saturday by the killing of four cow
boys by an equal number of Indians.
Two Strikes, White Face Horse and
-two sons of Two Strikes became in
volved in a quarrel with some cow
boys over some cattle, resulting in
the killing of three cowboys and
the mortal wounding of another,
who: died the same morning. The
cowboys were employed by Stringer
k Humphreys, contractors on White
Clay Creekjwhosupply the Indians
with beef. It is said the Indians
obtained whisky in some way and
were under the influence of liquor
when the killing was done. Indian
"Agent Brown sent twenty special
policemen to the scene of the trouble
as soon as he learned of it. The
Indians resisted arrest and the police
opemed fire on them killing Two
Strikes and his two sons, as well as
White Face Horse, and capturing
.the entire lot. The trouble is not
likely to result in any outbreak on
ifc part l tke Piaa Biigs Indians.
It is said the democrats will try
to increase the supreme court to
hfteen members in the next con
gress. This would add six to its
present membership, and give the
democrats a chance to control it.
Three of its nine justices, when
Jackson, the new appointee, takes
his nlace. will be democrats. This
count includes the chief justice.
Six of the nine are republicans. If
six more members are added the
democrats will have to take five of
them to secure a majority. The
court would then stand eight demo
crats to seven republicans.
It is yet nearly four weeks before
the advent of the new administra
tion, but Washington is even now
rapidly filling up with democrats
who are anxious to serve the conn
try in any capacity that is open to
them. Before March 4th the
national capital will be a very hive
of place hunters, the large maiontr
of whom will be doomed to return
home disappointed and a great deal
poorer than when they went. . If
Mr. Cleveland has 'been correctly
reported he does not intend to make
a sweeping change in the public
offices, and he cannot do so if he
proposes to give the preference, to
men who can show a good business
record. The new administration.
however, will not be able to quite
escape the usual experience -with the
importunities of hungry spoilsmen.
Bee.
In an editorial on irrigation the
'Bee says: A corresuondent of the
Bee suggests, as a ; means of indue
ing the farmers of Nebraska to en
gage in the artificial watering of
lands on their own account, that
the legislature appropriate a fund to
be paid out in premiums to farmers
for the best specimens and largest
yields per acre of grains, grasses and
vegetables on irrigated lands. This
might stimulate the agriculturists
of the state to special effort, but it
is already perfectly clear that irriga
tion pays and that only by. means
of artificial watering can the pursuit
af agriculture be made uniformly
profitable in that portion of the
state which is classed as arid. The
drouth of two years ago and the
disastrous effects which it produced
sufficiently demonstrated this. A
jhprdugbT system of irrigation in the
region where the lack of rain was
most felt would then have saved
thousands of farmers from, distress
and would have added greatly to the
wealth of the state. There is an
abundance of water in Nebraska for
irrigation and only enterprise
needed to apply it to this use.

The following excerpt taken from
an editorial in last week's Liberty
will be of interest to the populists
of Lincoln county: One year ago
last Januarv there were more than
800 delegates in attendance at the
annual meeting of the State Farm
ers1 Alliance in Lincoln. In De
cember last, ISO delegates attended
the annual meeting at Grand Isl
and. One year ago Mr. J. Bur
rows stepped down and out of the
board of directors and ceased to be
the chairman of the executive com
mittee. When Mr. J. Burrows
stepped down and out C. H. Van
Wyck stepped up and in. One
vear ago the State Farmers' Alli
ance paper was a power in Nebraska:
it was on a paying basis, with more
than 10,000 paying subscribers.
Mr. J. Burrows stepped down and
out and Mr. S. Edwin Thornton
stepped up and in. To-day the pa
per is going down hill and losing
money, and is without influence
On Tuesday of this week 275 shares
of it stock sold under the hammer
on execution at auction for $94
cash. These 275 shares represent
820 a share or a total of $5,500. At
the price it sold for the stock
brought two cents on the dollar.
And yet the Alliance-Independent
talks about the Capital National

ers ruined! Here was a paper
VMt to the State Industrial School
at Kearney.
continued from last week..
The roperiateadent now led us down
a steep embankment until we were thirty
feet below the leva! of the plaza and into
the great furnace room. Here were five
furnaces heating immense boilers in
which were generated the steam for
1 ,1 d.1 i MJ; . -
ueauug mii we uuiuungB ana ior power
for the work departments. Adjoining
this is the electrician's department where
he provides for lighting all the rooms in
the institution, At request of the super
intendent he set the machinery in mo
tion and the dynamo set aflame all the
incandescent lights on the premises.
From this room we caased nn and rmt
across the plaza to one of the family
buildings. Entering upon the ground
floor upon our right was a toilet and
bath room; on the left a room that is to
be fitted up as a reading room. At the
end of the hall we entered a large room
about 20x50 feet, surrounded on all sides
by seats that were now occupied by more
than fifty boys, from eight to fourteen
years of age. Over and back of each boy
was a hook from which was suspended a
cloth sack in which he kept his treasures
and trinkets, which is sacred to himself
like tho drawer, in the bureau at home.
Over the sack, .hung his cap, made in the
institution and of the same material as
his suit, woolen and warm.
In this room there is the freedom of
home, and games, stories and reading
were all in progress as we entered. On
one Bide was a boy barber clipping tho
locks of his fellows, one after the other,
with creditable effect considering the
wiggling condition of his victims. The
officer in charge is always with them and
attends to their wants and amusement.
Upon the second floor are the officers'
rooms, and the school room, fitted up
witn ail tne appucances needed to im
part a thorough knowledge of the
branches taught; excellent patent desks,
large blackboards, reference books, maps,
charts, an organ, etc. "We were sorry
not to find a school insession, for we are
told the boys are much interested in
their studies. On the third floor is the
dormitory where each boy has a single
bed with wire springs, a good mattrass
and plenty of covering. These rooms
are neyer cold as the buildings are
heated by steam. We visited a second
building arranged much as the first,
where were about the same number of
boys from twelve to Bixteen years of age.
Then a third with boys from fourteen to
seventeen years. In all these rooms wo
did not see a look nor an act among the
boys that indicated a feeling of shame or
degradation for being seen there. They
are taught tfa truth that the fact of
being there isuo d!srace;it is what they
did while at home that brought them
there that should cause them regret. It
was now noon and we bad no time to
visit the fourth building where the
largest boys live. The bell rung and all
the inmates of the institution were pre
paring for dinner. The superintendent
led us in advance of the families to the
great dining room on the first floor of
the main building. Here one family
after the other came in and took their
places, standing until all had taken their
positions, when at a signal from the
assistant superintendent all seated them
selves and waited in quiet until, at a
signal every head was bowed and every
their meal. We wished, as we stood
there, that every boy in our homes could
be taught such a habit of respect and
gratitude to our Great Giver.
The provisions set before the boys
were the same as are found upon the
tables of the officers whose dining room
we next visited, and upon the table of
the superintendent, with whom, through
his courtesy, we now dined. Tho family
of the superintendent, as well as himself,
are all interested in "our boyB" and;
special cases of merit werp mentioned in
which tho daughters seemed to feel a
sisterly interest In the family parlor
we were entertained with music by the
elder daughter and were shown some
fine paintings from the hand of the
younger.
We now went to the general reception
room and conversed with some of the

The Next Department Commander G. A. B.
We noticed an article in the
Omaha Bee last week to the effect
that Church Howe was trimming
his sails for the position of depart
ment commander of the It. A. K.
for the ensuing year Now comrade
Church Howe is all right, was a
good soldier, is a comrade of marked
ability and declares of course that
he is out of politics and all that,
but he is too previous in this matter..
It has only been about two years
since Church has been taking anv
perceptable interest in Grand Army
matters ana last vear he figured, as
a candidate ror department com
mander and the boys, while they all
like him, expressed theopinion that
he had better figure in the ranks a
few more years before aspiring for
the commandership, and the same
holds good this year. There is a
worthy comrade out at North Platte
who is entitled to the honors this
time. He was a brave soldier and
is a worthy comrade, has worked
for years in aiding to build up the
order in Nebraska, is a gentleman
of ability and, in fact, has all the
requirements necessary to fill the
position with credit to himself and
honor to the Grand Armv boys of
our state. W e refer to Hon. Alonzo
Church, of North Platte, our pres
ent efficient senior vice department
commander. In all fairness to him
and. to the great army of veterans
in the western part of the state he
should be honored with the position
his vear. His election will be a
grand incentive to the boys in this
part of the state and will be the

Comrades elect comrade Alonzo
Church for commander, and select

We came away deeply impressed by
what we had Been and heard. Impressed
with the fact that those boys are not to
be commiserated, but congratulated upon
the advantages they have and the in
tercet that is felt and manifested in their
permanent welfare. Impressed with the
efficiency of the officers and especially
with the exalted fitness of Supt Mal

position-he has held for eight years with
so much honor to himself and benefit to
those who have come under his care.
impressed with the great mistake our
honorable legislature has made in reduc
mg the appropriation to this school when
it would have been for their eternal
honor to have doubled it
On the afternoon following we went
again to the school to attend the after
noon service by the chaplain, Rev. Martin,
with whom many of our readers are
acquainted. The chaplain was suffering
from a cold and there was no service,
but we had a delightful hour with him
and his daughter, learning still more of
the practical, home-like policy pursued
throughout lor these "wards 01 tho
state." The boys are gathered in Sun
day school every Sunday forenoon,
taught by Rev. Martin as one class, in
which work he has succeeded admirably.
We wish we had space to elaborate his
manner of conducting this school for we
are confident many could learn useful
lessons from it

"Total mill wages in productiou of

to finished bars in England $4.62,
in the United States $11.27." Wages
$6.63 higher with us. The iron
made in Staffordshire, England, sells
there at $38.85 per ton, the same
quality made in Pittsburg sells there
at $40.32. In Pittsburg tWe laborer
gets over 35 per cent of the price,
in Staffordshire only 9 per cent.

money will buy 17 per cent more
goods than that of the American,
and the difference in favor of the
