Bvcry competent observer pronounces the agricultural exhibit at the Om.iha exposition superior to anything of the kind that has ever been produced any where. The tiansmlssHslppI region Is the garden spot of the world and Its choicest pioducts are displayed at the exposition. Missouri democrats who have control of the stale government show their love for the populists by refusing even to let them tile their tickets for places on the oQlclal ballots. In other states , however - over , where the democratic ascendency Is nut so marked , the populists are good enough to ser\e as allies to help the democrats Into the otllees. Thu Second Nebraska Is not the only regiment that Is being given a thirty- day furlough to rest up before taking the Una ! physical examination prepara tory to mustering out.

What do these ilgmes slgnlfyV Simply hat the tax gatherer has been mote successful within the past two years ol good ciops and ie\hlng ptosperit than le had been dining the piceedlng years if drouth and general business depres Ion. The popoei.itle land commissioner 'or whom so much Is claimed as a savior of the school children was him- * elf among the delinquents as a lessee > f school lands whose rental he was en- ibled to pay only alter he got upon the .tate payroll. The new plan by which ic ex'pects to ilde back Into ollice could H'\cr ha\e been cart led out had not the .Conditions of the country been Improved with the advent of McKInley and re moval of the menace of repudiation by urrency debasement , together with iu- ci eased consumption of larm products by re-employed American labor. The deceptive figures by which normons savings to the taxpayers are pioved can be puiictiued Just as read ily in other dbectlons. It Is true that the state's tloatlug debt has been re luced several bundled thousand dollars , but the leductlou comes not liom the tate tieasiner but ftom the people \vlio have within the last two yea is le- deemed not only their outstanding tax < - > but also the moitgages lifted with the eaiulugs of their fauns , SP.I/.VS / ; ) DV/.sT/c' The SjmnUli Lolies will adopt the peace protocol and when S.iu.isla shall have accomplished that he will piolubly letlie fiom the ptemlershlp , the other membeis of the cabinet ot course le tiling with him. It seems plain that Sagasta will not be permitted to re main in ollice dining the pendency ot peace negotiations , however miah lie may desire to do so , pot haps by way ol lonndlng out his political career. Hut the sentiment Is stiongly against his contlniiame In ollice and the advices In dicate that the queen tegent has lallen In with this feeling. Immediately alter the signing of the piotocol Mar shal Campos dcclaicd that theie should be another ministry to negotiate peace and it Is now appaient that he voiced a widespread opinion. lu the Cortes the government has been most vlgoiously attacked , the conduct of the war being denounced by some of the most Inlluentlal men In the legis lative body. General We.vler , ot course , is posing as the chief mllitniy ciltlc and ( lie leading champion of the Spanish ' army , notwithstanding the lad that he did mine to demoiallxe the ainiy than a score of defeats could have done. Still he has plenty of adheients , at least among mllltaty men. Meanwhile a new p.uty has been organi/ed , under the leadin-hlp of General I'olavlela , the pie- else object of which has not yet been cleaily defined beyond opposition to the Sagasta government. This party seems to be glowing In strength and Influence , as well as In aggiesslvcness. it Is very likely that If Sagasta retires lie will lie succeeded by 1'olavleja , which would probably mean some very radical changes In political and military allaiis. With icgard to the dynasty the new- party Is doubtless as loyal as Is the party In power and It may be better disposed to weed out corruption , expel Incapacity fiom the public setvhe and icinedy other existing evils. In that event Its accession to power would lie of distinct benefit to the nation. The condition of affairs In Spain has an Interest for the American people In so far as It may affect the peace ne gotiations. Theie is some bitter feeling against the United States and doubtless there Is some sentiment In favor of ic- slstlng any demands on the part of this country beyond what are specifically made In the peace protocol. 1'erhaps negotiations would proceed more smoothly with Sagasta at the head of Spanish affairs , but In any event It Is not to bo apprehended that any serious effort will be made to obstruct or un necessarily delay negotiations , since Spain would have much to lose and nothing to gain by such a course. It Is to be presumed that even Weylet realUes that It would be the extreme of folly for Spain to adopt a course that might create contioversy and complica tions Inimical to peace.

( inIng domestic His. .I.V The ( ] Uesthn as to what "shall be done with the Philippine Insurgents appears , fiom the lati st advices. have become urgent. Agulnaldo. It seems , u growing all the time more arrogant and mote aggressive. He assumes that by virtue of such assistance n was lendeied by the Insmgcnts In the captme of Manila he has some right of Jurisdiction and authority there. Ills demand to bo al lowed 'to ' occupy n poitioti of the city having been iefu ed , he proceeded to stietiglhen his position outside of the city as a menace to the American forces. In view of this the AHUM lean outposts were doubled and the rebel leader was notllled that he must with draw his forces within a stated time. This presents an ominous situation , lor If Agulnaldo should icfuse to with draw , which It U quite possible he will do , ( icncinl Oils will be compelled to adopt coercive measuies. He must fol low up his ultimatum with action If Its demand Is not compiled with. The doub ling of the American outposts plainly indicates that this Is the intention. It Is veiy much to be hoped that thcic will be no necessl'y for taking forcible ineasuies against the Insurgents. We do not want a conlllct with those people ple , any more than we want one witli the Cubans. American desire Is to tieat them fairly and justly. Hut we cannot permit them to de'eimlne conditions to suit themselves. They have no right to dictate terms of any kind. The sur- lendcr of Manila was made to the Ameilcan forces and our mili tary authorities alone have the light to exorcise control there. The assumption of Agulualdo Is absurd , because no di v ided authority In Manila Is to he thought of. If , theiefore , the liisiu- geut leader should persist in his unjus tillable demands theie is but one tiling to do. He must be suppressed. This might be no easy task. The insurgent foicc Is larger than we now have at Manila , it Is understood to bo well sup plied witli arms and ammunition and it lias shown that It will light. Warfare between our tioops and the Insurgents could have but one result , but the achievement of that result might cost a good many Ameilcan lives. It Is most earnestly to be hoped that this will be averted. General Otis Is a discreet soldier. He has at command the wise counsel ol Admiral De\vey. If it be a tact that the American commander has de manded the withdrawal of the Insur gents fiom their menacing position about Manila there can be no doubt that theie are sound and sulliclont lea- sons for doing so. It ma.v become nec essary to send moie soldiers to Manila. VULICK DKMUlt.M , ! It Is admitted on all hand * that tin.

The pro fession must bncppje still more professional 1 with the Improvements In arms which aie continually being perfected , and which other nations are on the alert to adopt. General Wheeler Is the last man In con gress to bo accused of a leaning to mili tarism or Imperialism Ho views the coun try's growing military needs from the sol dier's point of view exclusively ; and ho sees that , leaving tbo homo service wholly out of the question , the garrleonlng of the new poHsrsslons v\lll make a larger standing army Imperative. General Wheeler agrees with Secretary Alger that there should be an army of ino.000 men. and slnco he has been Invited by Chairman Hull of the house mili tary committee to aid In framing the new army reorganization bill , It Is likely that Ids Ideas on this and other matters of de tail will find expression la tbe formulated measure a fact which Invests his utter ances at thin time with more than ordinary ilgnlflcance.

There seems to he a strong suspicion nbroid that If the tenant was a good reformer some filend would lease the land and the tenant would remain and of course he would not have to pay any baek taxes. If per chance ho was a republican , of course he would lose his place and all ho had Investe-d there , la both case's the state lost the back money. North Platte Tribune' ( rep ) The popu list papers are howling with delight over the statement that Secietaiy of State Porter ter has during the past eighteen month.s collected and turned over to the state 120- 000 In fees. To be honest with the'lr read ers the pop papers should state facts ; they bhould state that of the above amount $1.1- iiOO was the corporation fee of the Union Pacific that was not collected by Poitcr. It was not entrusted to him for a single mo ment , but was turned into the treasury di rect by the agent of the Union Pacific. The payment of thU fee would have been made Just the same If n democrat or a republican had been secreary of state. It was not made through any "mitingement" of Porter or other populist state officials , yet they are attempting to make the voters believe that they are entitled to all the credit. Instead of turning $20,000 In fees Into the state treasury , Secretary Poiter has turned In less than $7.000. Genoa Leader ( rep.- ) Speaking of passes reminds the Leader of the "hot box. " Pojn- tei , the populist nominee for goveinor , got himself into with a pass n few jears ago It was while he was a member of the legis lature.
