TKEASUBEK. We are authorized to auuomice I. I. Moore of Lewis township, as a candidate f-.r the oBce of Treasurer, ot Holt County, subject to the decision ot Me KepuHican .Nominating Convention.. Friend or Foe. The city council at its meeting last Tuesday evening passed nn ordinance authorizing tae submission of the ques tion to the voters of the city, on Tues day, March 24, 13DG, as to whether they shall bond the city in the sum of f2T,00U, for the purpose of putting masetem of water works. The opinion and views of The Sestinei. are bo well known to our people, and have been so often ex pressed, that it is wholly unnecessary for as to repeat them here. The city of Oregon must awake from her Rip-Vun-winklian sleep, or she will awake only to realize the decay of her beautiful lit- f to nit.v. We. as citizens in common with our oeople, will have to bear the creat and ruinous loss that will surely fallow unless we awake to the import anm nf the occasion. The council has Anna its whole duty in this matter, and.! it in nur dutv to stand by them in the discharge of their duty. The Made Land. The action of the county court of Callaway county, looking to a sale of the accrued land on the Missouri river near Cedar City for school purposes, will no doubt cause much litigntion. This land is all claimed by; persons who hnrdlv feel like civine it up. even for eo commendable an object s the public schools. There is a decisiou of the supreme court, it is said, in a suit oyer the title to an island, or rather an island when river is high, some four or five miles above Cedar City on the Cole county side, which may have n bearing on the Callaway laad. In a general way it vm held in that case where a person had lost land by the action of the river, and afterward it was again deposited m accretions, the title vested in the original claimant. Within past ten or t.vAltrn vnnrs larce bodies of land have tMAn cut awav from the Callaway side bv the river, and Borne one no doubt held a tftle to ever strip along the river side. Gone Glimmering. The Sentinel was not mistaken when it said more than a month ago that the house tariff bill would be sacrificed in the senate by the free 6'ilyentes ef that body. Tuesday of last week it was bur ied out of sight by an adverse vote that made it evident that no matter what the necessity of the government on ac count of deficit in revenue the senate as now organized will yield nothing in fa vor ot that necessity except- by an abso lute surrender by the tariff advocates to free silver. The free silver men in the senate may chuckle oyer the fact that they have achieved a victory such as it is. but it is a barren one. in this, that it has not advanced tho cause of free silver or made any new friends for it in the bouse or anywhere else, or made it any nearer being possible to pass any bill for free coinage in the house. There is nothing more to be done than for the people to take the matter in hand at the coming elections and so reconstitute the government that the executive and the two bouses may harmonize upon meas ures that will bring adequate revenue for public purposes and restore prosper ity to the country by protecting our domestic industries from a competition that is now seizing our home markets bv the cheat) labor of foreign countries and destroying our home markets for the farmers or tne country. Value of Cheap Excursions. One of the most effective ways of en couraging immigration is by extending transportation facilities to those in search ot new lands and new homes. There is no cla6S of people more in terested in the development of the great northwest, and the speedy settlement of the great areas of fertile lands still unoccunied. than the railroad corn- painee, whose linen extend into this territory. For that reason the steps taken bv the Burlington system in tir ranirine for cheap excursions for home and land seekers, is an admirable one. It is true that many persons who avail themselves of these cheap home seek ing excursions are not always satisfied with the lands they visit in this way, but it is also true that the greater por tion of them contract the western rover from such visits, and finally decide to make their permanent homes in the new region explored by them in this way. Thousands of persons in the eastern and middle states have no more than a general idea of the character of the country, many of them not oven that, and the way to get them to know what it is. is to brine them into the country that they may see for themselves. The verv active, etirrinc life of the west is a fascination and a stimulant to them, and tbey yield to it when they are once brought in contact with it. Elsewhere in this issue will found the dates of these home 6eekers excursions, and fuller information may be obtained by conferring with the various local agents in the county, or by corresponding wun L.

The sound money wing of the Demo cratic party of Missouri on Suturday last threw down the gauntlet to their onDonents. the free silverites, at a meet ing in St. Louis. In accordance with announcements, a conference and a demonstration were held, to which the cold men throughout the state were invited. Fully tour hundred represen tative Democrats wete present, and every congressional district in the state was represented, inis, uie im uibinui, was represented by B. J. Woodson and W. M. Smith. ex-Governor Francis called the meeting to order, and ex At tornev General, D. II. Mclntyre, was called to the chair to preside Mr. Francis in calling the meeting to order said: He denied that the Pertle Springs platform was a teBt of Democracy in Missouri. The convention, he declared, had taken the machinery ot the party out ot the hands of those to whom it bad been intrusted. This had been done against the protest of 2,000 Demo crats of good standing. "That conven tion," he continued, "overrode our wishes, and called an early convention ia order to shut off free discussion of the financial question. It was then that we made up our minds that the time had come for the sound money men to stand up and be counted." Congressman "Riley" Hall was present and made a vigerous attack upon the free silver contingent of his party. He declared that the 6ound money party of the United States was the Democratic party; and offered as a proof of his as sertion the action of Jefferson, and the action ot the Democratic party of to day, aided by a Democratic president, in repealing the Sherman act and the Bland-Allison act Then he abeerted that the champion of free silver at the ratio ot 1G to 1 was advocating some thing which did not exist in the world. Japan came the nearest to it, with its ratio of 16.19. Next to it came Old Mexico with its ratio of 1C25 to 1. China was not worth referring to. "So," said he, "the advocate of free silver at 16 to 1 wants to root under tho China man, the Japanese and the Greaser." Judge Morton, ot Platte county, was made chairman of the committee on ad dress, and in reading it we are fully convinced that the old judge is able to take care of himself for a while yet, and perfectly capable of "speaking out in meet in," Married, at the German M.

Many of the local members of tho order will no doubt he glad to learn of this, us they contemplate going to the encampment Spam is Angry. The hatred of the Spaniards for the United States over the action of the United States senate m recognizing the provisional government of Cuba as be- . , n- . . ligerem imu in caning upou rresiucui Cleveland to use his irood offices with Spain to secure the inaependence of Cuba, culminated in violent scenes at Harceloua. on Monday last, by the ston ing of the United States consulate The senate revolution was passed on Satur day last, and on on Tuesday the house passed similar resolutions by a vote of 2tfl to 17. Cable dispatches indicate that Soain's indmnation is on the in crease, and indications point that she is making her niagnihcent navy reauy in r.Hnu of an emeruencv. I he r rencti ana English paper bhow a very warm siue - ... fur Snain. and seem to condemn the United States congress lor us acuon, The Sentinel is of tho opinion, how ever, thai the government, ot opaiu not at all anxious to engage in war wun this country, no matter how clamorous tho Spanish mobs in her cities may oe eacer for it as the result of Monday's excitement. Tho queen's government is not blind to the fact that if it were to resent the receut vote of our congress in regard to the beligf rent chatacterof the Cubans by beginning hostilities against the United States, it would be th KBverini? of the enlv ligament that now binds Cuba to Spain. Not a week would elapse until the United States could and would land from the Florida coast such a body of hastily assembled troops as would render totally helpless the army that Spain is now maintaining on that island. The resolutions recognizing beliger- oncv simply means or imply a recogni tion of the fact that a state of war ex ists,and that equal consideration should be ffiven to the two parties engaged in it. Thus the Cut nu insurgents will be allowed to send vessels into our ports the same as Snain is permitted to do, and private traders will be allowed to sell them certain kinds of goods. But neiter side can buy arms, ammunition. or any other military supplies from us. There is also likely to be a misconcep tion as to the effect of the resolutions passed. The passage of concurrent res olutions, can be no more than moral un til there is a declaration from the Pres ideat.and it is generally believed that the President and his entire cabinet are Etrongly opposed to theprtBent recogni tion of the beligerency of the Cuban Insurgents, and to any declaration con cerninc their independence as embod led in the resolutions. iience, mere will not necessarilly be a war with Spain, any more than there was when she hastened to reewgnize the Southern Confederacy. X Bays, The St. Joseph Evening News thinks it a misfortune for the Scientist Koentgen to have such an unpronounceable name, claiming that on this account the rays that variably penetrate dmerent mater ials, will always be known as X RayB and will not bear the honored but jaw- breaking name of the discoverer. Prof. Roentgen himself cills them A Rays because of their yet undetermined character. They mny be transverse or longitudinal. They are assuredly not infra-red nor ultra-violet, nor even sucn light rays as are appreciable to human sieht. When their true nature is suf fiiientlv established to permit of classi fication the X will he eliminated and a name properly designating themsubsti tuted. To give a new science ooject the name of its discoverer is at best a misleading system of nomenclature avoided by all true students who care less tor tneir personality than for the subject invest! gated.

C. serving in the capacity of page to the sergeant at-armsof the pres sent congress, sends The Sentinel, the following interesting letter about the national capital: The capitol building is about seven hundred and fifty feet long and its breadth vanes from fifty-six to three hundred J.ind twenty-five feet. It cov ers and area ot four acres including the grounds. Its height from the ground to the toD of the Etnlue ot Jjtuerty on the dome, is three nunureu anu eigm .... , , i a feet. The central portion is construct ed of Virginia saudstone painted white n ml :s the original capitol. Since 1827 the wings. u Inch are of Massachusetts marble, have been built. The capitol facee the east. It was originally be lieved that the city would build up on the east side ot the town, but instead it has built up on the west side and the capitol, like the Irishman's shanty, has its front door on the oacK siue. Over the main entrance is a sculpture n low relief bv Caoellano. and repre senting Washington being crownea with laurel by Fame and Peace. At the main entrance is the famous bronze door designed by Ralph Rogers and cast in Munich in I860. It is inside of a bronze casing, is 19 feet high and 9 feet wide, weighs ten toBS and cost $23,000. On the nine panels are designs iu high telief reoresentins scenes in the lite of Columbus and in the discovery of America. On the eastern porticoes of the house and senate are twenty two large cihimnR. and on their north and south fronts are ten similar ones. The dome nf cnHt iron and weiahs nearly 4000 tons. I!v its necuhar construction tne nliniiL'es of temnerature make its con traction and expansion like the folding and unfoldin? of a lily. It was designed by T. U. Walker and cost over S'iWU.uw. It took eight years for its completion Tim bronze statue of Liberty which is nn the summit of the dome is nineteen and one half feet high, weighs soven and one-half tons and cost over 24 Alt J The rotunda is a magmheeut circular hall !H1 feet in diameter and 180 feet in height. Above are the 3G windows of the peristyle, then the curving dome, at its top the "eye,"' an opening 50 feet in diameter. Susttended over the eye is an immense iron canopy on which is Brumidi a celebrated allegorical paint ing, "Ihe Apotheosis of Washington." Washington, with "Freedom" and Victorv" at his right and left anu it female figures representing the origi- al states, occupy the center and around the border are six groops representing the "Fall of Tyranny;" "Agriculture," Mechanics." "Commerce." the "Ma rines." and the "Arts and Sciences." It cost 350.000 and occupied Brumidi a number of years. Around the walls are ight large paintings representing, nrsi: "The Landing of Columbus at ban Salvador" by John Vanderlvn and cost some S10.CCJ. The nest is tbatoI "Ue Soto Discovering the Mississippi" by W. II. Powell and cost $12000. Then The Baptisn of Pocahontas" by Chap man cost 810,000. The fourth is uy llob't W. Weir representing the "Em barkation of the Pilgrims" and cost 810.000 Tlie next four are by John Trumbull representing the "Signing of the Declaration of Independence, me Surrender of Burgoyne." "burrenaer of Cornwallis." and "Washington Re signing his Commission." 4ow passing through the west coor of the rotunda we come to the library of concress. This is made up of three halls each 00 feet long, 31 feet wide and 38 feet hiah. They are tire proof. lighted by windows and glass roofs, and have tessellated mnrble floors. The shelves are of iron painted beautifully. and it is estimated, nave a total length of about live miles. The library con tains GCO.OOO books and 200.000 pamph lets. North of the rotunda is the chamber formerly occupyed by the senate, but the sunreaie court has used it Moce 1800. This is nn elegantly turuisiieu room and a beautiful specimen of classic architecture. On the wnlls are busts of deceased justices and in the robin? room west of the corridor are tine portraits ot Uhief justices jay. Marshall, Taney and Chase. The court sits promptly at noon when tne crier aunoances: "The Honorable the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United btates. Then the justicen come in dressed in black silken robe6 with fie chief jus tice in the center, and take their seats. Then tho crier opens the session by the ancient formula: "Uyez! uyez: uyezi All persons having business with the supreme court of the United States are admonished to draw near nnu give inoir attention, for the court is now sitting God save the United States and this honorable court! North of this is the senate chamber. which is in the north wing of tre capi tol. 112 feet lonL'. 82 wide and 30 high. The ceiling is farmed of iron girders and cross pieces, enclosing ulass panels behind which, are hundreds ol gas built-" for the evening ssmns Ihe president's seat is at the n irth end of the chamber. On his right sits the eerg't-at-Arins, on his left the iissiHtant doorkeeper, while in front are the oesKS of the clerks and official reporters. Be hind the chamber is the lobby and north of it is the "Mnrble Room." the walls, floor, and celling are of polished marble. It is usee by the senators for consultation and for the reception of snecial visitors. West of the marble room is the presidents room, i tie presi dent comes, here during too hurried closing hour of the session and sign bills passed at the last of the session. .ll over the senate wing are pictures and paintings which are mnt magnificent. Now we come to the "National Statu ary Hall" formerly used by the house of representatives. Trom 1808 to 18U when it wns destroyed by the British. On its reconstruction it was again devoted to its original purpose until 1S57 when the house nssembled in its present place. There is nothing of much interest here, so we wi!l pass on to the house which is the southern extension of the capitol. It is 130 feet long, 93 feet wide, and 30 feet hieh. The ceiling is similar to that of the senate chamber except the panels are decorated with the seals of the states. At the north end o: the hull is the chair of the speaker in front or whish is a marble table. On the speak er's right is the mace which rests on a marble pedestal and is the symbol of authority of the speaker. It is a bun dle ot black rods fastened with trans verse bands of silyer, like the Roman fasces. On its top is a silver globe sur mounted by a silver eagle. Close by it sits the serg't at-Arms. At the speakers left sits the assistant doorkeeper. A full length picture of Washington is on the wall east ot the speaker and one ot Lafayette is on the wall west ot him. South of the ball is the lobby with the walls decorated with the portraits ot past speakers. Opening from the lobby is the members' retiring rooms. Grand stairways leads to the galleries and statues (lecoratejthe landings. Here, as well as in the senate, are fine paintings. The walls of the various committee rooms are ndorned with fine paintings and frescoes. From the dome we get n magnificent view ot the city. This ends my description of the cnpitol.

For the past year he had been in feeble health, ana alt that was possible was done by fonu parents and friends to re store him. but his disease, that of the liver, gradually worked its way, until the day named and he was forever re leased from his suffering.

Jacob Mumm, of Mound City, died suddenly of anponlexy on the af ternoon of the ir.ith ult. tie tiaa been comnlainmir for more than a week About 2 d. in. on Thursday he wa9 taken suddenly ill at his place of business and was removed to his house as soon mere after as Dossible. lie became uncon scious and died within 30 minutes after beinsr Dtit to bed. Medical aid was summoned but it was soon felt that nothing could be done. The break in the machinery was irreparable. The end had been reached. Jacob Mumm was born at Hoen in Schleswic. Germany, while that state was still i. nart of Denmark. He re mained in his native country 'till after his ruiijoritv. receiving such education as could be civen there. He came to the United States and settled in Val parniso, Ind. Me was the only member of the family who ever ventured to come away. He had several brothers in Oer many, at last accounts.oneof whom was C teet Ila.j inches in height and was one of the emperor's body guard. As these brothers were older than he, they or part of them may be dead. Mr. Mumm came to St. Joseph in lSo9. and soon af ter the war encased with one of the Pincers in tho lumber business When the war beaan he tiromotly enlisted the First Missouri Cavalry. He served nearly two years and held the position of second sergeant. In 13G3 he married Miss Elizabeth M. Jessen. by whom he bad the following children viz.tAnna M John, who died in infancy. Lydia M now the wife of Ed. King, of the Mound Citv News: Amanda M.. wife of Law rence Kaucher; Theodore V, Ollie who died May l'A 18k; bmina U Iteniamin F.. Edna A. and Harry J. In 18S0 Mr. Mumm moved to Mound Citv and eneaced in the lumber busi ness, in which he was successful, as the block of business houses and other property built by him clearly shows. He was a public spirited and useful man, and promptly supported any tneas ure that promised to forward the in terests of the community in which he lived. Ha was president of the board of education for about nine years. Mr. Mumm was a member of the Methodist Episcopnl church at Mound City, and also of Wilkinson Grand Army post, and of Holt lodge and Mound City Encampment of Odd Fellows,also of the Woodmen of the World. The funeral was in charge of the Odd Fellows of whom a great number from all parts of the county were present. The Grand Army and the Woodmen participated in the ceremonies at the grave. The funeral took place Sunday nfternoon. Two sermons were preached simultaneously, one by Rev. L. 1$. Wiles at the Methodist church and the other by Rev. tl. 15. Preston at the Presbyter ia"n church, both to overflowing houses. The funeral was larger than any that has occurred in Holt county for many years, which fact is conclusive of the high estimation in which the man was held by hia fellows. The excellent pub lie schools of Mound City owe much of their efficiency to the energy of Jacob Mumm. nnd for his labora in promoting their interest he will long be retnem Ilesides the wife and children already mentioned Mr. Mumm left two grand children. Nelson King and Dorothy Kaucher. Two brothersof Mrs. Mumm, John and Peter Jessen, of Ljtraoot, Ia., were present to comfort her in her great trouble. John will stay a week or so to aid her in re establishing tho business which will be conducted under the management of Theodore W. Mumm, the eldest son. Save Your Home! Secure Your Family! E. 0.
