The age of lack has gone by and with its

The president took bis Wednesday's
ride to Oak view iu opposition to tbe in

that he suffered no ill effect from the
ventare will probably tend to confirm
his opiniou that his judgment is better
than tbe judgment of the medioal men.

No one yet admitted to Mr

himself to all kinds of public or private
business. He -will in all probability
pull through this attack and there is no
need of fears oonoerning bis oouditlon,
but be is in delicate health and will re
quire exceeding good eare now and iu

any of the various rheumatio affections
It is not denied that there is in Wash

has gone so far as to provoke enquiries
regarding anooeaor iu the event of his
death. Under the provisions of the

1HE NEBRASKA SFNAT0RSHIP
Latest l'lia*e of the Hltnatlen—Judge
cobb's Candidacy—Van Woa'a
Liuoon, Neb., special: The near ap
proach of the time when the legislature
will meet increases the interest in the
senatorsbip question which will soon
become the all-abaorbing topio. Your
correspondent has interviewed several
prominent parties who keep posted on
the turn political affairs take and who
look oat for uew deals in a political way.
Iu answer to a qaestion, a gentleman
who has been a public offioial and
lamiiiar with publio affairs, said the
leading candidates just now are Jadge
Oobb, of Lincoln, Congressman Laird,
ex-Congressman Weaver, eX Senator
Paddock,Governor-eleot Thayer, and ex
(iovernor Nance. The two last as
dark hoises among tbe straight
out republicans, and Van Wyok,
anti-monopoly aud independent republi
can. At the present time the indications
arfa that Ooi baud Laird will have about
the same number of votes, with Oobb iu
the lead of uy thing and Weaver follow
ing close on both. These estimates, ol
ooorse, leave Van Wyok out of consid
eration, as he is a crowd by himself.
Judge Cobb has mure positive strength
'hau any other candidate. His deoisioni

The upper house in oongress was too
close lor Nebraska republicans to take
any other course, aua it was their doty
to nee a substantial republican should
be sent to the senate. Vau Wyok'e sup
porters will go iuto the caucus, but wii]
be unable to control it or break it up,
even if Van Wyck is naw fighting a
caucus. Judge Oobb is now the strong
est candidate, and is likely to beeleotcd.
Laird will cot be a oandidate unless be
is toroed to be by those who oppose
bim. He may be obliged to oome
out iu self-defense. Few if an
demoorats will ever vote for Van
Wyok, aud the stalwart republicans will
never vote for a demoorat, but will
prefer to caase a dead lock and prevent
an eleotion N»noe lias no hbow, and
Weuv. r'B prospects are not very flatter
mg. In 4 certaiu event the Hon John
M. Thurston, of OmabH, might be sprung
as a candidate. There is a report to tbe
effeot that when Manderson's te
expires Vau Wyok, if re-eleoted, is
give his influeuoe to Thurston in retnrn
for some support at the present time,
aud a certain combination might briug
such a scheme to a point thia winter.
The foregoing statements cover aboat.
all tbe HeUatoriitl gossip of interest just
now. Other phases of the situation may
develop at auy time, and the importance
of the election of a staunob republican at
this time oan not be overestimated.
