PETERSON Perhaps the greatest compliment that cau be paid to a state official un der the present primary law of Ne braska is his nomination for re-election without a content so far as his political party is concerned. This recognition of efficiency has been tendered to Silas R. Barton by his party affiliate?, and is a well merited compliment to his conduct of the office of auditor of pub lic accounts. Mr. Barton has done much, in the insurance department of his office, for the protection of the in sured and has not hesitated to incur the displeasure of wealthy corjiora tions who sought to evade the law ami operate in spite of the state law that is intended to compel insurance com panies to cany on their business in a manner that insures the insured in case of a loss by (ire, or his beneficiar ies in case of life insurance. As the official who is required to scrutinize all expenditures for the upkeep of the state institutions, he has exercised diligence and has inaugurated a sys tem of uniformity in this department that simplifies to a marked degree the records of this office in this particular. Personally, Mr. Barton is a plain, gen ial, straightforward business man and his excellent past as a public servant should make him an easy winner for another official term. Tilden Citizen. HOW LANE SAW WASHINGTON. In Washington lives John Lane, a descendant on his father's side of an old Virginia family, and on his moth er's side of an old New England fam ily. Mr. Lane is 86 years of age. For some years he has liked to puzzle people whom he met by telling them that he was the only living person who ever saw George Washington. Now as Washington died in 1799 and as Mr. Lane is 86 years old, it can be under stood that persons to whom the state ment of having seen George Washing ton was made were naturally incredul ous and looked on their informant as either being something of a joker or as beiag something which they did not care to mention when facing him. When the old Virginian has excited curiosity or incredulity to the highest pitch he will make explanation. When he was a boy of about 10 years . he was standing on the road in George town when a Mount Vernon stage coach passed. The driver knew the boy and asked him it he wanted a ride. He did, and he climbed up and took his seat beside the driver and stuck there all the way to Mount Vernon. It happened that at the time of their arrival the body of Washington was being moved from the old tomb to the new one, and in order to make sure that the ghouls who had entered the old sepulcher sometime before had not disturbed the remains of the Father of His Country the coffin was opened and the boy Lane was lifted up to look up on the face of the "First American." 'So it is that today Mr. Lane can say truthfully that he is the only living person who ever saw George Washing ton. Everybody else who was present at the removal of the remains died long ago. Washington Letter to the Chicago Evening Post HITCHCOCK'S INGRATITUDE. I The Hitchcock-Bartley exposure occupies the attention of the public around here almost to the exclusion of everything else. It is the topic of conversation wherever two or more people congregate. And one feature of the awful confession made by Mr. Hitchcock, whether he borrowed stale money or Bartley money, showed a streak that does not belong in a United States senator. That feature is tbi.-: After admitting that he had borrowed money from Bartley, that the state treasurer had come to his assistance at a time when the wolves were howl ing at the door of the World-Herald office, when he knew not where to secure bread for his family, when star vation and ruin was on every hand and the gifts of his relatives were about to be swept away from him, and his aristocratic head was about to le bowed down in poverty and want, he appealed to republican state treasurer, Joseph S. Baitley, for help. He appealed not in vain. Bartley advanc ed the. money. The wolf was scared away, the Omaha editor took on new life and his business prospered. His family was fed and he took his place among the wealthy men of the day. Then hard times fell upon Bartley. Those whom he had saved from finan cial ruin came not to his rescue. They saw him carried to the state prison, a convict scarred for life; taken from his home and from his family. And as Joseph S. Bartley grew pale and thin in his prison cell which he could have filled with those who had helped to place him there by being partners in his crime. Gilbert M. Hitchcock prospered and grew rich. Bartley fought his way out of- prison. He needed money just as Gilbert M. Hitchcock needed money. He appeal ed to Mr. Hitchcock to pay back that which he owed him. He appealed in vain. Gilbert M. Hitchcock knew him not. When the request was made for a settlement and the note signed by Hitchcock present ed to him, he repudiated it. He defied Joseph S. Bartley to bring suit for its collection. He threatened him with criminal libel should suit be brought to collect it. "The debt is outlawed," was the rea son Hitchcock advanced for his refit sal to help the man who had saved him from poverty, his family from disgrace and made it possible for him to live and succeed. Bartley was in sore straits, and the opulent Mr. Hitchcock, made opulent by the gen erosity of the state treasurer, forctd this man who had served a term in prison with his lips securely sealed, to take only a small portion of the amount due, in exchange for the Hitchcock papers. Hitchcock, the democratic candi date for United States senator, the editoi of the World-Herald, the much talked of head of investigating com mittees; Hitchcock, the moralist, made his own statement that the note Bart ley held was outlawed. He gave that as his defense for not paying it, A debt that was contracted at a time when he admitted his credit was bad; money that he admitted saved him from bankruptcy. "Hitchcock is not made of the stuff of which our United States senators should be," said a prominent democrat today, in discussing the exposure. "I may have overlooked his borrowing money from a state treasurer; that debt was contracted in hard times when many others were borrowiug. But I could never overlook his refusal to pay back the money because the debt had been outlawed. Ingratitude is the basest of sins. Had Hitchcock been a man he would have worked his fingers off to pay that debt. Bartley saved him from disgrace and frorr ruin. Hitchcock with the start Bart ley gave him, got rich and could have paid every dollar of that debt and not injured his fortune. But he refused. He pleaded the statute of limitation. Just think of it! He, when rich, refused to (.ay to a poor man a debt he owed because it had been outlawed. His own confession damns him. The, voters of Nebraska surely will never assist such a man as that to a seat in the United States senate. Lincoln correspondent of Omaha Bee. Her First Poem. She was one of those soft eyed maid ens, sweetly innocent, shy and gentle. She was unaccustomed to newspaper offices, but. being ambitious, she man aged to And enough, courage to try 'winning an editor's sympathy, sym pathy to be expressed by the accept ance of her poem. "I have here," she said demurely; "a little verse I've composed. I really don't know what you'll think of It. Tou may not like It at all. but It's my first that is. the first I've ever writ ten for a newspaper and I'd be very pleased indeed If you honestly thought it was good." The editor kept at his work, now and then scowling, but not at the young woman especially. "It's about a maiden tripping o'er the lea," she continued. "What was the trouble?" asked the man behind the paper. "Couldn't she lift her feet:-" Philadelphia Times. bsssssssssssHbsssssssssssssW BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB?'

Two years ago, as an auditor of public accounts, I was an experiment; having served you two years my service tells the story of whether or not the office has been filled to your satisfaction. As president and member of the Banking Board, I have done my best to maintain sound banking conditions. This work, of necessity, must be done in a quiet way but I feel quite positive that, if you could scruti nize the work of this department it would meet with your approval. The bond department, which is one of the departments of this office, has had before it many complex questions and at times we have been compelled on account of error to have entire issues revoted. I firmly believe that every issue that has passed through this department will stand the scrutiny of the lust courts in the land. The county treasurer examiners who comprise one department have brought to my desk complicated conditions and we have succeeded in getting questionable matters adjusted; today we have our examinations well within the legal limit and, if re-elected, I mean to bring the examinations down to a yearly period. The printing board, of which I am secretary, has let the contracts for the Plate printing to the loweUrootidibIe bidder, as the records of this department will show. The bills have been audited with care and the interests of the state safe-guarded. The state or expert nccoiiutatii under my direction has audited the several stale institutions and, in my bi ennial report, recommendations for improvement will be stiggeted without fear r favor. As a member of the board of equalization, whose duty it is to assess the corporations, my vote has been dictated solely by my judgment and I rest on the written record which is ojh'ii to inspection. As insurance commissioner I have, through my examiners, examined closely into the conditions of our insurauce companies and where evil and wrong were found, used corrective measures without giving the matter publicity, believing that a man who accomplishes these beneficial results without tearing down institutions and men, or creating distrust in the minds of the people, has done more foe his constituency and his state than the one who, to upbuild himself, wrecks men and institutions. I have freely exercised the right of the department to decline to admit companies whose standing was unsatisfactory and to revoke the license of unscrupulous insurance agents. Quite a few names adorn the "black list" in my office and as long as I am Auditor of State I shall enforce this right, believing that a certificate from this department should be a certificate of honesty as well as a right to do business. We feel in this department that we have accomplished much for the insuring public and the insurance agents and companies and firmly be lieve that our work has met with the approval of the great majority who are honest men and honest institutions. Thanking you for the honor conferred in entrusting me with this important position, I am, most respectfully, SILAS R. BARTON. I GETTING OUR RIGHTS. A well known Kansas man is mak ing speeches in the east and a copy of a paper printed in New Hampshire, containing extracts from one of his addresses, has been received by the la- j bor and capital editor of the Gazette. The speech was fiery aud eloquent, and the country really must be in n bad way if half what this Kansas ora tor says is true. He claims, among other things, that a poor man can't get justice in the courts, which are con trolled by capital. The poor man, in fact, is getting the cleaver, coming and There is no such thing as jus ! going. tice for him. There are many orators preaching that doctrine, year after year, and the poor men who hear them are forced to j the conclusion that their faces are be ing ground by iron heels. There is a better doctrine that should be preached by silver-tongued orators. It is not sensational, but it has the merit of being based upon truth. This doctrine is that the poor man who is industrious, and minds his own business will get along all right. If a man applies himself to his work, with all his energy, his services will be valued highly, and paid for according ly. He will be promoted from time to time and, if he is economical and sensible, prosperity is sure to come to him, and he won't need to lose any sleep over the bugaboos conjured up by impassioned orators. The statement that the poor man can get no justice in the courts needs a lot of corroborative evidence. But even if it were true, the poor man shouldn't walk the floor because of it The man who is industrious, and at tends to his own business, seldom has anything to do with the courts. Near ly all the litigation in this country rises from the fact that people don't J attend to their own business. There OF is too great a disposition to meddle, to interfere with other people. If a man keeps his own dooryard cleau he doesn't need to worry about the condi tion of the landscape on the other side of the fence. When you see a man who has ac hieved prosperity, and built himself a comfortable home, and raised a happy family, you see one who minds his own business, and refuses to shy at bogie men. Erujvoria Gazette. THE MORGAN STOCK. Horse lovers will be glad to learn that lhe fcprtciit uf agriculture is to maae au tiort to restore the old Morgan stock of horses, at present practically extinct. The present gen- eratiu" knuW3 ,iu,e nothing of the Morgan" lmr.se, but those of the gen eratiou immediately heibre, during and after the war will recall this breed of horses as among the most useful and valuable for general purposes that this country has ever had. The breed originated in Vermont, by Justin Morgan, for whom the breed was named. The Morgan was a close built, round barreled, clean limbed, fine necked, handsome headed, intel ligent looking animal of about 1,200 pounds when in good flesh, deep round hoof, flat leg, fine mane and tail, good sPry gilt hardy as a bison, never known to flinch or fear: in color, a handsome chestnut sorrel, with only a white spot in the forehead. Soon after the war came the development of the speed bug, and our handsome Morgan was bred into lines for speed, with the result that before many years the old Justin Morgan stock of horses had be come so dispirited in a stock of indiff erent roadsters and utility horses that gradually it became lost alto gether, and this country has never had his equal since, as can be verified by any horse lover who knew the Morgan in his prime. Atchison Globe. LATTA AGAINSTTHE FARMER. Congressman Latta is taking ad vantage of his ranking privilege by mailing free of postage thousands of letters to.his constituents compliment ingthe great scientific work being doue by the agricultural department of the government in the interest of the farmer. But, notwithstanding this good work lieiog doue by the agricultural department in the inter est of his farmer constituents, when the appropriation bill carrying appropria tion of $4,000,000 for the maintenan ce of the agricultural department came before the last session of con gress, Mr. Latta immediately move I (Cong. Rec, page 1301) to strike out the only item in the bill for carrying on this work in the state of Nebraska, amounting to the sum of only $18,000, to do experimental work iu propagat ing and growing trees on the sandy land in this state. Mr. Latta voted for this motion and but for the vigilant efforts of the other members of con gress from this state, the item would have gone out of the bill, and the great state of Nebraska would have received no direct benefit whatever from experimental work along this line from the agricultural department. Wouldn't it be better to send a man to congress whose vote will be record ed in favor of the farmer when needed, rather than to have a man there who will vote against his own state and then use his frauking privilege to tell his constituents how they are being benefited by a department he attempt ed to cripple with his vote? These letters going out just before election would convince any unbiased person that Banker Latta is really looking more for his own personal interests than he was to those of the Nebraska farmer when, he voted against them in congress on this measure, the postal savings bank bill and the railroad bill.

He is making an aggressive campaign on the issues as he sees them and is fearless in stating his position. He has cards out, printed in three different languages and is giving them wide circulation.

The Leech as a aremeter. A leech confined In a glass jar of water will prove an excellent weather prophet. If the weather is to con tinue Hue the leech lies motionless at the bottom of the vial aud rolled to gether in a spiral form. If it Is to rain, either before or after noon, it is found to have crept up to the top of its lodging and there remains till the weather Is settled. If we are to have wind toe prisoner wriggles through bis limpid habitation with amazing swift ness and seldom rests till it begins to blow hard. If a remarkable storm of thunder and rain is to succeed the leech gives itself up to violent throes and convulsive motions. In frost, as In clear summer weather. It lies con stantly at the bottom, and in snow, as In rainy weather. It pitches its dwell ing on the very mouth of the jar. African Grosbscks. The social grosbecks of South Africa live in large societies. They select a tree of considerable size and literally cover it with a grass roof, under which their common dwelling Is constructed. Tbe roof serves the double purpose of keeping off the heat and the rain, and 400 or GOO pairs of birds are known to have tbe same shelter. The nests In this aerial dwelling are built in regu lar streets and closely resemble rows of tenement bouses. A Financial Gsnius. "He Is a financial genius.

Curious Lighthouse of the Republic ef San Salvador. The republic of San Salvador, on the Pacific side of Central America, is the only government on earth that collects lighthouse fees on account of a vol cano that It owns. The volcanic beacon Is about eight miles Inland from the port of Acajutla and Its pillar of cloud by day and its fire sky night are visible for many miles out at sea. It erupts every seven minutes and Is just as accurate as any revolving light that warns mariners in any part of the world. This volcano has been keeping up this seven min ute series of eruptions ever since any one can remember. It is a favorite amusement of visiting gringoes to sit by the hour during the lazy afternoons and. watch in band, time the eruptions until they tire of the amusement and fail asleep. Every vessel that puts In at Aca jutla and It Is quite an Important port of call along that part of the coast has to pay its lighthouse fee. There- is no other lighthouse than the volcano, but that is a sufficient excuse for the government of Salvador to make a charge for Its services. The explosions that accompany the eruptions sound like detonations of heavy charges or dynamite, but arc not sufficient to rhake the ground perceptibly more than a mile or two from the summit of the crater. At night there Is a spurt of fire, a muffled report and a cloud of steam. By day only the steam Is vis ible. New York Press. THE RICK IRRIGATED LANDS In the BIG HORN BASIN.
