If Sioux City fools inclined to nny future exco > sea in Boreal BtronuoflitioB , it is to bo hoped that nho will count Norfolk out of her contingent territory. The experience of the past couple of days has boon eminently satisfactory in that lino. Governor Savngo IB duo to pass from tho'soeno of action in Nebraska politics and there few regrets hoard from any whoro. Ho expects to go west and it is to bo hoped that ho will grow np with the country aud grow up right , us Btntosmnu. A Now York woman is said to hnvo boon making n line stake by selling n harmless substance to wives who doslro to poison tholr huslmmlB , charging fron $1 to $5 for the stuff. It is not stated what woman first found and reported 'that she had boon fnkod. "Washington is to have n now unioi depot that is to cost the government nnd the District of Columbia about $4- 000,000. The people will probably not object to the expense , realizing that Washington , if any city of the , country should have n large aud handsome depot. Reports from North and South Da kota nud lown iudicato tlmt , as has boon its Into custom , Nebraska entertained but the fug oud of that hurricane. Its extreme fury was expended on those states. Nebraska is well content with the leavings in this particular case. Germany nnd England perslat in their attitude toward Vouovuoln , oven after Ciiatro has apparently niado the conces sions they have domnuded. It may bo that there is larger trouble brewing for the allies thnu the small republic conld possibly make for them. The report that there is likely to be n whiskey famine conies like a thunder clap from n clear sky and many n poor WTOWJHwno ims oeen struggling along trying to mnko his eatln' nud driukiu' will feel as though it was tlmo to give up. But they are advised to stay with * er till the calamity is realized. It may not bo BO worse. Just ns Senator Alton's Madison Mail hau warned the people of Mndison county that n pnnio is impending , a reckless county supervisor begins nu agitation to do away with the county poor farm , which has not been well patronized of late years , nud has no particular proipoots. Lincoln Star. The American people uro more pros perous than any other people on earth aud yet there are these given to fault binding and complaining with their lot. Perhaps they would have greater ap preciation of their advantages if they were compelled to exist na do the poo- pie of other countries for a year or two. Since the death of J. Sterling Mor ton of Nebraska City no one 1ms takou it npon themselves to protest ns em phatically nud regularly against the dis traction of trees to provide homos nud churches with timo-houored decorations on Christmas , and the slaughter was permitted this holiday season without protest. Senator Hoar ia homo once more. Ho has deserted the antis in their attack on the government and is fighting for the people and against the trusts. It maybe bo that the measnro supported by the Bonntor IN not the bout that could bo proflontod but ho la there to proro that hoiflontho right track nnd that the inllnenco of the trimtH muttt bo curtailed. A man with noinotlilng of n reputa tion na iv Bpondor , nnd resembling the person who crontod n record nt Lincoln bj disposing of f'2,000 nn hour for BOV- oral days , 1ms boon nrroHtod at Qulnoy , HI , , mid IB charged with the crime of bank robbery. The people of Lincoln who rooontly benefited by the extrava gant habitH of n stranger ivro now on- doavorlug to docldo IVH to what bank gnvo np the money whioh was spout. Sonatnr Morgan of Alabama has riaon nbovo the level of ordinary democratic polltlcH and IB making a specialty of the isthmian cnnnl , in whioh effort ho will rocolvo the support of a largo majority of the people of tbo north no well an of the south. Ho hixfl demonstrated that it is not only poflalblo for n southern demo crat to bo nbovo potty policies , but tlmt they mny even bo up-to-dnto nud pro gressive on matters of interest nud im portance to the country. After n laborious and expensive Invcs tigation the Atoliison Glebe finds that "tho diBtlllor rides in n steam yacht ; the wholesale liquor dealer rides in nn automobile ; the rotnll liquor doulor rides in n carriage , but the purchaser of the liquor IB pulled around by the hair of his head by n policeman. " Thus is presented n graduated scale of social in equality that socialists nnd others who rail against the diatinutious of capital are fioldom hoard to find fault with. In Vioiiun last year there were -in ! ) caBOH of Buloido recorded nud 407 at tempts at solf-dcstrnotion. Moat of the deaths are attributed to love nnd hun ger. The Austrian capital has the record among European cities , nud it is doubtful if nu American city conld coino within sight of the Yiounn record. Until they can show ever there that lifo IB hotter worth the living than this exhibit would provo , there are many of UH who will prefer to continue our resi dence in America. Reports iudicato that the worst of the storm oamo to nflliot the people of the western part of the state , nnd while this vicinity has rocolvod nn install ment of zero weather , the condition further west was much more trying. It is to bo regretted that any part of the state should bo compelled to suffer n spoil of weather uativo to Minnesota or the Dakotas , but people mny console themselves with the reflection that such an experience Is not only rnro but short- lived in Nebraska and that the extreme temperature will Eoon return to its native haunts. The senators are taking action to as certain just where the trouble lies in the coal situation , having started an in quiry into the prevailing high prices and the reason for the famine. The people will not only wish thorn SUCCORS in their inquiry , but hope they may bo able to give legislation that will prevent Us recurrence curronco in the f utnro. A very limited supply of coal in mid-winter is n condi tion that does not appeal to the best nature of these who depoud on that f uol to prevent freezing or discomfort from the coH. Business men are surprised and pleased nt the way iu whioh buainess has boon holding up this far during January. They usually expect a de cided slump in trade , immediately fol lowing the holidays , but this yenr ap pears to bo n gratifying exception to the rule and much business has boon trans acted this month up to the present time. The indication is tlmt the people did not spend all their mouoy during the holi days nnd that uow they are buying the nocoBaities that were neglected during the holiday season. The coal situation in Ohicngo and other eastern cities is distressing and the indications are that the mine owners nnd coal-carrying roads are courting trouble that will not bo pleas- ant. They nppear to hnvo no scruples about freezing a few people to death that they may gain eomo point for which they are striving. The govern ment may adjust the matter but it may bo believed that the people will not wait patiently when they are suffering from cold nnd may take matters in their own hands if the situation is not at once re lieved. Certainly no court will be pop nlar that will convict n man of stealing coal if his loved ones are freezing. If Mr. Oxnnrd aud the other beet sugar men nro satisfied to give np the fight against granting Cuban sugar concession of 20 per cent , that about tolls the story , but there are these who would fight till dooms day on the question if it was thought that the beet sugar industry would bo injured and the sugar refining trust benefited. The beet sugar industry IB a growing Americni interest aud it ia to bo hoped that it wil. continuo to grow until every pound of sugar used in American homes will be produced by American workmen from the product of American farma. The democratic newspaper boys should have waited for Governor Miokoy'8 message nud inauguration before - fore renewing their accusations of corporate influence against him. It is improbable that their idol , the little giant Thompson , would Imvo taken n firmer stand for the people nnd against corH > rate Influence than hnn Governor Mickey , who strongly Insists tlmt the burdens of taxation bo oqualt/.od in fact and not in theory. If the legis lature follows Ills ndvico the people will hnvo reason to bo thankful that Mr. Miokoy was elected governor. Nebraska farmers , OH well an UIOHO of lown , nro taking up with the idea of rural telephones qnito generally nnd it IB believed that it will bo only n matter of tlmo when nil the fanners will bo able to turn n crank nnd talk with their neighbors or with the people of the owns nud cities where they trndo. It is to bo oxpooted that n merchandise de livery Byatom may follow the telephone nnd mail rontoa into the country , when the people in the oonntry will bo as well served us nro the people living in town. The farmer of the future is not likely to roaltzo the inconveniences nud trinls of the farmer of the past. In Ohio the gnnio wardens nro on now tack , tlmt threatens women aud their fashions. The wardens of that Btuto nro visiting the millinery stores and seizing quantities ot wings aud bodioB of birds that nro within the class specified by the game laws as not game birds. The desire of woman to wear birds of beautiful plumage , many of them Hwoot singers nud the majority of thorn valuable na insect destroyers , on their hntB , ia n primal cause for the slaughter of n largo number of such birds during each season. The notion of the Ohio wardens may impress on thorn the undesirability of such a fashion , nnd when they ronlizo that the surest wny to stop such slaughter will bo to cease wearing birds nnd wings , it is believed that they will quit with one accord. They mny bo averse to giving np n style that causes suffering to thorn- solves , but may bo depended on to dis- oouutonauco n fashion that moans cruelty and slaughter to the most beaut iful nnd desirable of nature's small creations. These who have boon looking for n businosB-liko administration by tha re publicans placed in control of affairs of state at Lincoln fcol that tboir antici pations nro about to bo realized by rea son of the facility with whioh the pre liminary work of organization has boon disposed of on the pnrt of the republi can member of both the senate nnd the house. With the selection of J. H. Mockott ns speaker of the house and W. H. Harrison as president of the senate - ate , nud other minor positions filled in ; anous , it remained for n more ratifica tion of the selections when the legisla ture was actually in session. This was quickly disposed of nnd the state body nt ouco proceeded to the business laid ut for it to do , with no fights nnd no discord to iutorfore. It is a pleasing prospect to republicans who believe that the present administration is intent on preparing a foundation for futnro sue cesses at the polls that will bo in evi deuce during the years that are to come. The propitious beginning should rule during the entire session , and there are many lovol-headed mon in the senate and house who will undoubtedly under take to Bee that it does. President Roosevelt has decided to call an extra session of congress , pro viding the present session does not adopt a reciprocity trenty with Cnba aud pass * nn adequate law jfor the con trol of the trusts. The pooplojwill pup port the executive , especially in his dp sire for legislation through which the great monopolies can , bo controlled. If there is one thing more than another emphasized by the present cool situation it is that the government should be given power to deal with such , condi tions. There is such a thing as corpor ations and capital having rights bnt there is nlao such a thing as laying down laws they shall not transgress in tholr dealings with the people. They undoubtedly have an influence toward directing the people in their interests and plenty of money to urge their cause , bnt if the president nnd congress will take a firm stand for the people it is believed that the voters mny bo de pended upon to support thorn regardless of how much influence and money maybe bo put in to cause their overthrow People have boon aroused to the'neod of such legislation ns never before nnd they have about determined thnt the present is the very beat time to Bottle the matter as to whether the people nre to bo controlled by the trusts or the trusts by the peoplo. They are ready to sup port nny party or set of candidates thnt will bo nbovo corporate influence and assert the independence of the country iu fact ns well as iu theory , This does not mean that they have become radl cnlly opposed to capital , so much 113 to make its use unprofitable , but they do believe that it should bo subordinate to the will of the people , aud that nny at tempt like the present to freeze the people ple into submission shonld iu the future bo impossible. If the people cannot do this peaceably aud through the means provided by the ballot it IB not difficult to foresee that n revolutionary spirit would bo aroused and by force of arms the people would nttemnt to enforce a changed condition of affairs. The will of the people baa governed iu the past and it ia not improbable that it will as sert itself in the future. The sun is remaining nbovo the horizon later oaoh evening and noon a person will bo able to BOO whether ho baa basher or plo for supper without lighting a tal low dip. An exchange has figured it out thnt when capital nnd labor realize thnt they aro'partners inaoporablo in nil thnt is undertaken by either , the millennium will hnvo boon reached. THK NICWH has learned how thin people plo may got fat , nud it gives the inform ation generously and fraoly bny it at the butcher's , or of a pocking house , or kill a hog yourself and take it from him. Reports from the mines indicate thnt coal is being mined there , but it is ap parent that for soiiio reason or other it fails | toj roach the people who perform the not of shoveling it into the steve or furunco. Norfolk is hustling for the rebuilding of the Insane asylum. The state can't afford to lot tbo property it Btill has tboro go to waste or bo disposed of at a sacrifice. And besides , Norfolk is en titled to it. Grand Island Independent. With the Bonnto nnd honso of ropro- Boutntivosthe various legislatures and Bonio grand juries probing into the coal situation the negro in the coal pile is very likely to bo uncovered nnd when ho is disclosed tronblo of some sort as suredly awaits him. The Reading companies report thnt their production of coal was greater last week than during any other similar period in a number of years. Evidently it is not now the fanlt of minors that some of the people of tbo country are prevented fiom purchasing coal. It 1 alleged that n Nebraska evangelist - list has been robbed by a woman in n San Francisco saloon , of his pocket book , containing $103 , while endeavoring to auravol sociological problems. It is a phase of the question he probably was not prepared to study. They have been enjoying sleigh- riding in Missouri , and perhaps farther south. It has thus far been a winter boyoud criticism as far as severe weather is concerned. No place this side of the torrid zone would seem to be exempt from its rigors. NOWB of the conl situation in tbo various states of the north is easily crowding any other sort of news toward obscurity. Even the legislatures nro naving some difficulty iu getting a lieariug from the reading public , unless they nro dealing with the main question of the hoar. President Mitchell urges the members of the union to exert themselves toward increasing the output of coal from the mines , that the situation may bo re lieved. If the coal is to bo side-trucked and held , orjpiled np in great heaps and guarded it IB impossible to see how extra efforts of the minors is to avail. A rash legislator has introduced a bill prohibiting football at any of the pablio educational institutions of the stato. If the football players should organize a lobby tboro might be n scrimmage ever the passage of that bill that would pat the real game in the shade , andit would be nn interesting thing to note who is credited with the first touchdown. The sultan of Morocco is experienc ing the uncomfortable knowledge of how | it feels to have his followers sell tboir arms and ammunition to the followers of the pretender. It is almost equal to the experience of the candidate who finds that his friends are tinding their votes and iusido information to the other side. The grand jury at Chicago appears to bo learning something of the coal situa tion that will bo interesting to con sumers. It ia to bo hoped that their in vestigation will result in more than learning some important foots and they may bo able to bring these gailty of withholding the coal from the people to torma , promptly and vigoronaly. A California girl has sold an inherit ance nnd a chance of becoming a count- esa for $0,000 iu cash. She has the trao American spirit. She prefers to be an indepoudent American woman of mod erate means than a countess in a European monarchy. She ia rnthor nn exception among society women , mnny of whom would have paid several times that sum for her chances of enter ing the nobility. Cole Yonnger , since the death of his brother Jim , huu a longing to BOO his old homo once more , before ho , too , is sum moud to his final account , nnd has made application to the Minnesota board of pardons for n full and complete release , bis present parole forbidding hia leaving the state. There are these who wonld grant his prayer , bnt Ex-Governor Sav- uga ia not of that state , neither , has the power iu Nebraska any more. The woman suffragists are maintain ing a lobby at Lincoln , not , as might be supposed , to have a suffrage law passed , but in the interest of a bill providing that a wife shall receive oiio-half of the basbnud'a eatato instead of ouo-third , as provided by the present law. This change Bhould not bo ot jnctlounblo , bnt there will be some to fear thnt the women are just trying tholr hand for nu attempt at tbo main Issuo. Blxby is fonrfnl that Onrrlo Nation mny bo neglecting her duties and bor field , nud IB npprohonslvo lost she go into innocuous dossuotndo witb Coin Hnrvoy , James B. Weaver nnd others who have had a tarn nt saving tbo country. If she bos taken anotion to subside for a spell the country is a gainer nnd the punsters shonld not endeavor doavor to nrr her loosa from her rinbt oous determination. Governor Murphy of Now Joraoy con- grntnlntoa bis state on tbo fact that it is tbo homo of tbo tnists , and appears to bo particularly pleased that tboBtato hns profited from snob corporations' to the amount of $18,000,000 during , tbo past docado. The governor appears to bo convinced thnt the agitation against trusts by the people of other states la In spired solely by their jealousy of Now Jersey's prosperity. Ho favors treat ing tbo trnsts with great consideration , and if the legislators nud ether officers fool ns ho does on the matter it will bo impossible to accomplish much by nt- ticking the combinations of cajit.l at the source of tboir boiug. Tbo postofllco department has pre pared statistical show that , of the mail which went wrong last year , 19,054,480 pieces were wrongly directed. It mny bo safe to conoludo'that the letter , from which you are patiently awaiting nn answer , long overdao , was among this number. In view of these figures , it should bo unsafe to disrupt a friendship , bnso n family difficulty or a business enmity on a inero letter that bad not been answered. It is a safer plan to try the charmed throe , before bidding the passions to rise ever the failure of n correspondent to reply. Yea may be ono of the fear persons who misdirected your letter last yenr. Governor Dockory of Missouri IB eulogistic ever free trade. He ignores the record , ns democrats will do some times , nnd attempts to make the people believe that under free trade , only , will they enjoy prosperity and happiness , full and complete. The disaster that at tended the country through the march of his party free-tradownrd under the reign of Grover has either not como to his knowledge or is completely ignored. Some mon would starve , die nnd rot ander the operation of a pot measure and continue to sound its praises with their latest breath and after they bed attained the shores of eternity. Other people are not constructed that wny , therefore the reason that free trade was bnriod nnd baa not been nblo to bob np with much force since 1890. If the poor people of Ohicngo become desperate enough to attempt to get their conl by stealth or by force , the loaded cars in the yards of that city may be moved beyond their reach. The citizens of Arcola , Illinois , however got nhead of nny such move , and assisted by three preachers , two bank presidents and a policeman , they confiscated 1C carloads of fuel , the process being renewed with vigor after the railroad company had refused to sell the fuel. After the town was supplied with fuel a committee of citizens offered to pay for every ton taken , bnt their method of procedure was far from satisfactory to the com pany having the shipment in charge. It was an exciting day bat it is improb able that those who took part toward securing the coal feel any regret for their action. The people of the state will bo qnito pained to hoar of the affliction of Hon. A. G. Wolfenbarger of Lincoln by hiccoughs. Those who have followed the political history of the state in recent years will not fail to recollect that Mr. Wolfonbarger has repeatedly rushed into the broach and served the prohibition party as a candidate in ono capacity or another , nnd they nro fear ful thnt ignorant people will attribute his present affliction to overindulgence in that which intoxicates , this belug the fruitful source of hiccoughs in numer ous well authenticated instances. Bnt his friends will rash to his rescue and emphatically deny that corujulco was the contributing cause of his complaint. He hasn't baen nblo to stop the disa greeable convulsions of tbo diaphrngm aud glottis for a week and bis friends fear that ho may never stop. It may bo his punishment for attempting to dis courage the production of hiccoughs iu the regular nnd time-honored wny. Castro Abandons All Hope. New York , Jan. 13.
