Free cider, why certainly, and feed our apples to the hogs. American Economist. The Grand Island city council have appointed a committee to act in con junction with the churches and benevo lent societies for the care of their needy. The Cass County Eagle thinks that if official salaries were cut down till they ceased to attract the selfish, a purer, nobler class of men could be secured to serve the people. - The death knell of the lottery business in Kentucky is sounded in a court decis ion that the state'had no constitutional right to contract its police powers away and the purchased lottery franchise by the authority of the legislature will not stand. Dak bosch's orchestra struck the oth er evening at New York city, refusing to play because he had employed Hegner as celloist, who hadnt been in the coun try long enough to become a member of the 'union. The admission money refunded at the door. The main objection urged against the proposed income tax is that it would lead to perjury. Then carry out the law and send them to the penitentiary for it We don't abolish the law for hanging simply because people still commit murder. Fremont Herald. The farmers of the valley of the Con necticut river are excited over the Wil son bill schedule on tobacco. Last year they received $6,000,000 for their tobacco crop. The proposed reduction of 92, or even $1.50 on imported tobacco, as now talked of, would mean ruin to three quarters of the tobacco producers. If Buffalo Bill is made Governor of Nebraska it will take a train of forty cars to pull the boys of Chicago who will want to go to Nebraska to see him inau gurated. A man who makes friends of all the children, as Buffalo Bill does, has something good in him. His name sounds a little wild, but Buffalo Bill is a patriotic American. Inter Ocean. The State board of educational lands and funds have purchased $45,000 of Webster county bonds, as an investment for the permanent school fund. There is still nearly $750,000 in that fund that ought to be 'used in buying warrants, thus acting upon solid business princi ples, instead of keeping the money as a temptation to robbers or placemen or scheming politician for plunder, place it where it will earn something and be perfectly secure at the same time. Foub years ago Nebraska incurred considerable expense in helping to sup press the outbreak of Indians at Fine Bidge. Senator Manderson has been successful in seeing a bill passed in his branch of the national legislature remu nerating the state to the extent of $42,000, and Nebraska would probably have had the money in hand a year ago, if the Nebraska members of the house had been equally as active in looking after the interests of the state. Now that we have more republicans there, we may reasonably hope to see a better state of affairs. William F. Cody, (Buffalo Bill), in an interview with a reporter of the New York Press, says it is true, as stated in an Omaha dispatch, that he is a candi date for governor of Nebraska. He has made a good deal of money with his show, and is now anxious to secure political honors. He recognizes the fact that being a democrat is rather against his prospects, in this state. There is no doubt but Mr. Cody would make a for midable candidate, because of his well known ability in a general way, in addi tion to his generosity and straight for ward way of doing things. "If only I had a chance to be some body r sighed a young woman not long since in my presence. What "chance" did Lucy Stone have "to be somebody''? If ever a girl could have been pardoned for hanging her harp on the willow and sitting down to wail for opportunities denied, it was this girl, born when women were burden-bearers and care-takers only, and education was given alone to men; when only five or six occupations were open to girls; when prejudice and precedence were arrayed in solid phalanx against the woman who dared to be an individual rather than an adjunct of man. Demorest's Family Magazine. re. At Ironwood, Michigan, which one year ago was a prosperous town of 5,000 people, where $250,000 were distributed in wages every month, there are now not more than 250 men employed, earning only $2,000 monthly. Of course, it is the proposed tariff legislation that is aiming a blow at the great industry of that region, which deters men from investing their money (advance it, if you please), on a future of uncertainty as to prices and demand for their product. Men choose to have their capital remain idle, temporarily, as it is now doing to a great extent all over the country, than to in vest it when they are well satisfied that tfcere will be a portion of it lost. It is best to have it remain idle, earning noth ing, they think, than to suffer a clipping frem tie stock invested. Clapp k Co, the well-known bankers and broken of New York, in their week ly market letter, nearly always start out -with some striking principles of finance applicable to the situation. As for instance: "Private honor is a public treasure. Public treasure may be secured at ex pense of private honor. Honest legisla tion may provide honest money or dis- isn. A liquidated income dollar clipped is generally sent to the mint of muscle for reeoinage. Constitu tional distribution can only be effected by constitutional taxation. A tax on products in transit" for exchange falls mainly on desire that exceeds necessity. Economy is the only defense against a tax that settles on price. The man that invents a tax that will fit bales, banks, bushels, barrels, bonds, beer and bullion alike in forty-four states can be made American pope.' And then proceeds to give a sugges tion that was advanced by Hon. I. Ger rard nf this city, years sgo, viz, the support of the government by a tax on railroads: "Nearly 750 million tons of freight were carried by American railways in 1892, an average of 112 70-100 miles. The average rate per ton per mile was 0567 and produced near 817 million dollars gross revenue. A government tax of one-eighth of one per cent equals 125 per ton per mile and would yield on last year's tonnage over 100 million dollars. One-tenth of one per cent on gross earn ings of all corporations engaged in transportation of persons or things, in cluding gas, electricity and water, might yield in the year 1,900 enough to support the government. National taxes maybe levied on trans portation, which both on land and sea claims the nation's right of eminent domain through legal titles originally granted by the nation in contracts ex pressed or implied. The nation always reserved the right of taxation. Land values are local creations, and should be subject only to local, or at most state taxation. Personal property, products of labor, either in use or in process of exchange for use, should not suffer a' direct tax. The tariff is a method of collecting a tax on the business of carry ing merchandise between nations by water. In doing this we discriminate wisely in favor of protecting our own in dustries. Foreign vessels should pay a tax on merchandise tonnage delivered free of duties enough to protect Ameri can vessels." Washington better. From oar regular correspondent. "Protection for all or for none." That is the motto the republicans in the house have inscribed upon the banner underJ which they will make the tariff fight. After careful consideration they have come to the conclusion that it would not be fair to the interests of the thous ands who will be deprived of protection by the Cleveland tariff bill, should it ever become a law, for them to vote with the fifty or sixty democratic representa tives who are trying to get protection for certain industries in their respective districts, by amending the bill. They will work to defeat, not to amend the bill; if the dissatisfied democrats are patriotic enough to vote with them against the entire bill, well and good; it not, let their constituents take their dose of free trade along with the rest of the country. Mr. Cleveland has not made a single new friend for his Hawaiian policy, which has few enough old ones, heaven knows, by his tardy answer to the demands of senate and house for the papers in the case. Notwithstanding the great mys tery with which the administration has sought to surround the whole business there is little in either the special mes sage or the accompanying documents that was not previously known, and absolutely nothing that excuses the ex traordinary policy of the administration. If blood be shed in Hawaii, and the latest news seems to indicate that it will be, the American people will rightfully hold Grover Cleveland responsible for it. Democratic representatives are already going home in droves for the Christmas holidays; they want to ascertain what their constituents think of the Cleveland tariff bill. "Uncle Joe" Cannon and other repub lican members of the house committee on appropriations gave Commissioner Lochren, of the pension bureau, a very bad half hour when he appeared before the committee to endeavor to explain the reason for the deficiency appropria tion of $300,000, which he had asked for to pay special examiners. Uncle Joe tried hard to get the commissioner to give a sensible reason for suspending a man's pension before its illegality was investigated, but he didn't succeed, for the same reason that a sixteen year old child doesn't believe in Santa Claus there isn't any. Mr. Cannon and Repre sentative Lacey of Iowa, made telling speeches against the administration pen sion policy in the house Saturday. A member from Georgia appeared to be about the only friend the policy had. Speaking of pensions, William A. Tay lor, late democratic candidate for lieu tenant governor of Ohio, has presented a memorial to congress, asking that the treatment of Ohio pensioners by this ad ministration be investigated. Mr. Tay lor does not mince words in saying what he believes such an investigation will establish as incontrovertible facts, among others, "that the government has been placed in a false and cruel attitude by its accredited and authorized agents and representatives; that the pension office was deceived into this false atti tude by a conspiracy of such audacity and magnitude as to stagger belief." Mr. Taylor does not say so in his memorial, but, if there was a conspiracy such as he charges, the chief conspirator was Gro ver Cleveland. Mr. Taylor says further in his memorial that the charges upon which Ohio pensioners were suspended were "a part- of that conspiracy" and were made "without investigation or a desire to investigate." The democrats of the house committee on invalid pensions, of which Representative Martin, of Indi ana, is chairman, to which this memorial was referred, made an unsuccessful attempt to prevent its being made public, but Mr. Lacey of Iowa made it a part of his pension speech. The secret is out For a time those not in the secret were at a loss to under stand the action of the house committee on rules, in reporting continuing orders giving the right of way to the bills for I the admission to statehood of the tern- ' tones of Utah, Alisons and New Mexico, but they are no longer at a loss to account for it These orders, which enable the bills in question to get through the house in such a rash, wen the result of a bargain, having for its object the gaining of six votes for the Cleveland tariff bill in the senate, the compact being, that the administratioa was to pat the bills through cougress at once, and in return the democratic bosses of the territories named pledged themselves to send senators who would vote for the Cleveland tariff bill and all other measures supported by the admin istration. The house part of the bargain has been carried out without any loss of time. It remains to be seen what the senate will do. Then an republican senators who favor the admission of all these territories, if Oklahoma be also admitted, but it is not probable that they will allow them to get in in time to send senators here to vote on the tariff bill. SoMETHixa new in the way of lawsuits is reported from the far west, that if allowed to "run at large" will make sad havoc in the ohina shop of hoary law precedents. Suit has been brought by the New Zealand Fire Insurance com pany against the Standard Oil company. Two years ago the oil company sold a certain quantity of coal oil to the retail dealers of Selma, Fresno county, repre senting it to be nonexplosive and very safe with a fire test of 150" Fahrenheit The retail dealers in turn sold the oil to their customers. Mrs. Mary Bell Brown a housewife of Selma, was 'among the purchasers. When Mrs. Brown used some oil in filling a lamp the kerosene exploded and burned her house down. She was insured for $1,000 in the New Zealand company. Mrs. Brown has joined the insurance company in a suit against the Standard Oil company for the amount of her loss. The complaint alleges that the oil was found to explode at 85 Fahrenheit It is reported other suits similar in nature will be filed. Oar Neighbor. James Legge, of Colfax precinct was severely injured by a cow last Thursday evening. While stooping down to tie her she jumped on him, bruising him badly and it is thought that two of the ribs were Jorn from the spinal column. Schuyler Sun. The trials of the charivari boys still go merrily on. The charge against James Porks, whose case went over from the day before on the plea that he took no part in the musical demonstration that was going on at the Johnson residence last Saturday night, but only stopped to look' on a minute or so, was dismissed. Fremont Herald. Mrs. James Beebe of Osceola was taken suddenly sick last Sunday morning, with what is called congestion of the spine and died Monday morning at about 9 o'clock, and was buried at Beulah, Tues day afternoon. She leaves a husband and two daughters to mourn her. They have the sympathy of the whole commu nity. Headlight. E. T. Graham returned from Omaha Tuesday. He lost his cattle case, a judgment being rendered against him for $2,700. The case was instigated by Frazier, a Columbus cattle buyer, who bought Mr. Graham's bunch of fat cattle last spring, but did not come after them until a few days after the time of deliv ery set in the contract, when Mr. Graham refused to deliver the cattle. An appeal was taken from the judgment Creston News. Farmer Hall, just east of town, is hauling wagon load after wagon load of manure from our livery stables this win ter and scattering it broadcast over his farm. He thinks, for some unaccounta ble reason, that this is more profitable than idling away his winter days in loafing and drinking poor whisky. Next summer some people will wonder why his crops are better than their's, then shake their heads and charge it all up to bull-head luck. Ulysses Dispatch. The Omaha Bee's Washington corres pondence says "Representative Meikle john called upon Supervising Architect O'Rourke to-day to hurry up the work of getting out the drawings, eta, for the Fremont federal building. He was assur ed that the working drawings and speci fications, including the approaches and all, excepting the heating apparatus, were being completed as rapidly as the limited technical force of the office will allow. Mr. Meiklejohn expects to secure. the advertisement for proposals early next month. No one from here attended the state irrigation convention at North Platte on the 19th. From the Ord Quiz we con dense the report of a committee in at tendance. They say that the interest is general and widespread; more miles of ditch are being surveyed and will be constructed in 1894 than are now in operation in the sub-humid portions of the country; quicksand can be handled easily and cheaply; the average price of land under the North Platte ditch is $50 an acre, and little for sale; one speaker proved to the convention that his crops were paying him interest on his land at a valuation of $100 an acre; special crops, such as cabbage, onions, celery, cauliflower, etc., in many instances ex ceed $500 an acre; two men and two teams can tend and irrigate 160 acres of land in mixed farming. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. A Colaartax Ckristaua. Christmas was celebrated this year just the same as if times were not hard, and money plentiful. The children evi dently enjoyed the holiday as much as usual. The churches all celebrated and many people who are not in the habit of attending church or Sunday school came out to see the exercises. We cannot give detailed accounts from all the churches, so will mention them briefly. The German Lutheran's hsd a large tree Sunday evening loaded with toys, candy, etc. Speaking and singing com posed the program. The Reform church also had exercises and a tree Sunday evening. The Latter Day Saints had a tree in their church Saturday evening. The United Brethren had a tree Mon day evening. The Episcopals had a big treat for the Sunday school Monday evening. The Baptists had a liberal treat. that filled two trees, Monday evening. The Presbyterians had a grand old fire-place and Santa Clans actually came down it bringing bis toys with him. A' short entertainment preceded his coming. The Congregational church gave a cantata Monday evesimg, "The Frost Queen," Miss Florence Gleasoa taking the part of queen in a commendable manner. Miss Ethel Galley was the ac companist on the piano, and gave excel leot satisfaction. The Methodist Sunday sohoolgave the cantata ."Santa Claus." The north cad of the church was built to represent a castle, with a large archway from which the stage was seen. Mrs. Theo. Fried hof was the accompanist on the piano. After the cantata the school was treated to candies, etc. The Maennerchor society had a large tree in their hall Monday evening.' " The churches wen all crowded, the evening was pleasant, all the exercises appropriate and interesting, and every thing was done to please the little ones, and make the occasion a joyous celebra tion of the advent of the Christ child. ANOTHER HOG DEAL. The Thieves Know t't-rtCeiaabas la a Good Market, ABjrkaw. The David City Banner has this to say: "Five salubrious swine departed from their beds of ease on H. C. Stryker's farm last Monday evening without leaving a note on their table to inform their friends of their future intentions. Their failure to write such a note is taken as evidence that they have not committed suicide, but their course is still an uncertainty. A couple of fellows left one of the livery stables in Rising about eleven o'clock that evening with side boards on their wagon, and as they have not been heard from since it is feared these five porkers waylaid them and run off with the team. Mr. Stryker has offered a reward of $25 for the capture and conviction of the crew and John McEvenny, the city mar shal, got rumor of their being at Lincoln and went down there yesterday to inter view them. The two chaps suspected of being waylaid and abducted are named respectively Smith and Suavely. Later, Snavely showed up and yester day made a confession implicating two more fellows, Edward Talbot and Oscar Bond in the stealing. It seems the hogs were taken to Columbus and sold by Smith who came back here and was arrested by Marshal West yesterday. Constable Jockisch brought the accused before Judge Dean this morning. Smith and Snavely plead guilty. Talbot and Bond will have their preliminary hear ing this afternoon." We may add that it is claimed these hogs were sold here to W. H. Lewis for about $40. We learn that the men spoken of were here and that the money received was spent mostly in the saloons. Real Estate TraaHfen.
