Dr Warner is now arranging
matters so that Butler Buchanan
will be found on the second floor of
the First National Bank building
after January 6, 1896. Mr. Buch
anan will then be simply an abstrac
tor and will haye no use for the far
mers he now so graciously grfcets.
The nomination of H. L. Gould,
of Ogalalla, as one of the regents
of the state university is a recogni
tion of the republicans of this sec
tion of the state that we are glad to
see. Mr. Gould is an excellent man
for the position and will receive
large complimentary vote in his own
and adjoining counties.

they can arouse a little enthusiasm.
In this they will hardly succeed.

pend and see how long he will es
ponse the populist cause. The re
mainder of the pop officials are just
the same they are willing to join
any party that will guarantee them
a job.
In- speaking of H. M. Grimes for
district judge, the Sidney Telegraph
says: Mr. Grimes has had a yery ex
tensive practice in all the eastern
part of this district and in the counties-lying
to the east and north of it
and has a good record in the supreme
court of our state. He is a lawyer
not only in name but in fact, and
has few equals and no superiors in
the district. His integrity as a man
and a lawyer has never been ques
tioned and if elected, as he certainly
will be, he will be a judge for the
whole people, knowing neither
friend nor foe, but administering the
law as he finds it and belieyes it to
be. Republicans certainly will and
all others should give him their
hearty support.
A recent dispatch from Boston
says: Reports that a Union Pacific
reorganization plan is soon to be
announced are stated by Boston in
terests to be somewhat premature.
There have been from time to time
meetings of representatives of large
interests in the property with a view
to forming a committee to reorgan
ize the mainline of the Union Pacific
road, but the matter has never pro
gressed as far as the formation of a
reorganization committee. It is
anticipated, however, that this will
soon be accomplished, the company
to be composed of representatives of
the various sub-committees and pro
minent interests in the road, and an
" effort will be made to get thp matter
before the next session of congress.
Does the county pay for the pub-
lication of that notice in which Mr.
xj . .i l
"UUUa.UU a"uuu" auiuuma
he claims to have saved to the tax-
payers of the county in the matter of
interest money?
Those who have been benefitted
by reason of populist supremacy in
Lincoln county will please hold up
their hands. Just a half dozen
hands are raised, and they are found
to belong to Neville, Miller, Keliher
Buchanan, Beeler, and Ellingham.
It is a Nevada agricultural society
that is now preparing to make up a
purse of one hundred thousand dol
lars to secure the presence of Mr.
Corbett and Mr. Fitzsimmons at
their creat moral, exposition. Ne-
vada really seems to be itching ti
eet wiped off Uncle Sam's map. It
seems willing to pose as the "dead
tough" member of the national fam
ily. Ex.
Ik ordar to accentuate the fact,
which of course i3 well known, that
this is a shoddv administration, it is
only necessary to point out that
under the McKinley law in 1893-94
the shoddy imports were but 210,404
pounds while under Clevelandism
and free trade the imports jumped
up to 17,665,563 pounds. A shoddy
administration? Well rather! Phil

The unanimous endorsement of
Chief Justice Norval for a second
term, ov the republican state con
vention at Lincoln last week, com
posed as it was of such a large num
ber of the leading republicans of the
state, must be verv eratifviner to
the Judge. He is clo'sing his term
with honor to himself,the stale and
the people who elected him. He
has a splendid record and will be
chosen as his own successor.
The law passed by the Texas legis-
lature to prohibit prize fighting re-
sembles the Nebraska law, in that it
makes the offense a felony. The first
and only conviction under Nebras
kalaw was a couple of fighters who
had a mill in Saunders county. At
that time Judge Marshall was dis
trict attorney and he prosecuted the
offenders in a vigorous manner and
sent them to the penttenliiry. It
was a lone time after lhat before
there was another prize fight in Ne
braska. Fremont Tribune.
The mileage charged by Sheriff
Miller when servintr papers in his
capacity do not indicate that he is
in the sheriff's office for his health,or
'hat he favors keeping down the ex
penses of the county. Mr. Miller is
not supposed to follow in the foot-
steps of his republican and demo
cratic predecessors, for you know he
is a member of and was elected by,
a reform party. But where in the
d does the reform come iu. Can
not Miller and Burritt publish cards
like Buchanan showing where
in they have saved the county
several wagon loads of sixteen to one
silver dollars?
Dubikg the past four years the
county publishing under the Era
cootract has cost the county in
round numbers $6,000. Had the
pop commissioners awarded the con-
tract to The Tbibuite at its bid, the
cost would have been $1,500 and the
county would have been 84,500 ahead
on the deal. Mr. Buchanan claims to
have saved the county $3,500, and
assuming that his claims are true
and honest, it shows the connty is
still $1,000 loser by reason of pop
ulist government in this one item.
The above statement is not political
buncombe bat a fact and is worthy
the consideration of voters who favor
good, honest govern ment.
The expression of the thousand
delegates from all over Nebraska in
attendance at the republican state
convention was ,such as to excite
sympathy for poor old misguided
Maxwell. It was merely an expres
sion of pity for him and his weak

old ace, and the expression was un-

Springfield, Mo., Oct. 10. Eva Dun

at this hour is speeding along to Cali

to whom she had been engaged for six

hopes were shattered. He hastened to

overtaken by the bride and groom in a

up to the vehicle and commanded his

companied Angle and her brother home.
Angle drove away soon after the party
entered the Duncan home. Since then
nothing has been seen of Angle or the
bride. It is understood that they both
left on the 'Frisco train for the Pacific

Constantinople, Oct. 10. Lato today
it became known that tho Turkish gov
ernment had finallv presented to tho on-
voys of tho six powers a reply to their
collective note on the subject of tho re
cent disturbances here. This reply, how
ever, is not satisfactory to the ambassa
dors. The porte, in its answer, onumor
ates tho measures taken to preserve or
der, and declared that the Mussulmans
were not the acErressors in tho recent
riotiner. but that, on tho contrary the
Armenians killed?-inoffensive Mnssul
mans. The Turkish government admit
that so soon as the Armenian refugees
leave the charches in which they have
sought refuge the normal aspect of the
city will be restored. It denies ordering
that no food bo supplied the refugees in
the churches, and urges the ambassadors
to assist in tho work of restoring order,
claiming that Armenian conspirators
are in league to cause fresh disturbances.
The note concludes with the assertion
that the government is about to open an
inquiry into the recent rioting with the
view of discovering the guilty parties.
In view of tho unsatisfactory nature
of the porte's reply, the ambassadors
met today to consider what shall be
done further.
Tho sultan continues to be greatly dis
turbed by the presence of the British
fleet off the island of Lemnos, and has
sent again to the ambassador of Great
Britain to ask for their withdrawal.
