Tbe to called national democratic
party through Its chairman oensurea
the present republics administration
because "the financial relief expected
ef the ad ministration has not been giv-
en." It was to be expected that those
democrats who voted for McKlnley be-
cause they could not endure for a mo-
ment the thought of supporting the
candidate of their own miserable dege-
nerate party should take to themselves
the whole credit for the magnificent
victory of the republicans at tbe
soils In 1896. and should try to direct
the policy of the successful party by
holding over tbe heads of the admin-
istration the faot that they came to its
aid at a critical time. We would be
the last to underestimate tbe value to
the republican party of having the sup-
port of these sound money democrats
la fighting the dishonorable and
dangerous dectrines which the Chica-
go platform strove to put into
practice. But we do em-
phatically deny that tbe republican
party gave to lta democratic
supporters any promise that has not
been fulfilled any assurance that has
0 been denied. President McKln-
ley has been in control of the govern-
ment since March of last year nine-
teen months. Tbe last eight months
of that time hV been filled with mat-
ters pressing forSmmedlate solution
particularly the Spanish troubles. We
believe the currency question ia
today the most important matter
before the public. We believe
that it ia of vital importance to every
corner of our country down to the re-
motest farming district or cattle ranch
that our currency system should be re-
formed. But this reform will lake
time to Inaugurate and press
through the ' period of leglsla
ttve meddling. The president baa
two years and abalf yet to serve. Hehas
done wonderful work since he assumed
office. The country is prosperous the
cry for currency debasement does
not now corn's from the producers of
the nation but Is kept alive solely by
the fatuous and demogogic appeals of
the professional politicians. The
country is safe. But !t is time to act
for the future and as we believe the
currency system ought to be revised
by purgiog our currency of govern-
ment paper obligations and substitut-
ing a banking currency on modern
lines so also we believe that the pres-
ent republican administration will take
steps tosccompllah this much desired
end and give the lie to those poor home-
less political wasderert who threaten to
take their dolls and go home unless
McKlnley will let them a paltry few
on the edge of a great and united
party run the government in return
for their kindness in voting for him
when they were ashamed to own their
Little Billy Bridoers has got
himself ioto a peck of trouble in the
second ward. Billy always wants to be
sure of things and then he blames it
on tbe printer. B.lly was very sure
this time. He was afraid he might get
left in h's desire to go to the conven-
tion as a delegate s a he wasn't
quite sure which faction he would make
the most out of and as he bad no prin-
ciple about it aojhow be got bis name
on both tickets. That is a good deal
like a crap game with the dice all
sixes. Billy is a skilful balancer. He
ruos double just as well a single and
if treated kindly he is warranted never
to break the harness. Feed sugar every
day or two It pays.
ALL tbe railtoad buys will vote for
Welch no matter to what pilitical
party they belong. Welch is a demo
crat. He is running independently.
The republicans have endorsed him.
If be is elected it will save the district
from tbe disgrace of having poor little
tawed off wbioiog B lly Bridgers to
''represent" this great metropolis in
the state legislature. People would
laugh. They would say "Is he a sam
ONCE before B lly Bridgers tried the
trick of getting himself on two
different tickets. That time be
had an easy exp'anaiioa. He sail
that after it had been arranged that
he should go on one ticket he moved
his residence and then he was put on
the other. Wonder what explanation
he will have ready this time.
Republicans now bare a good
clean straight ticket to vote for. We
shall attempt bo comparisons; we shall
say nothing against the opposing
ticket but we strong'y endorse the
ticket put out by the republicLns
and recommend that republicans vote
The action of the city council in de-
ferring final action on the electric rail
way franchise for one month deserves
the commendation of every citizen wbo
hsa the best interests of the city st
heart. Nothing will be gained by too
great baste in such an important mat-
ter. Between Bridgers and Welch there
Is no hesitation. The little Porous
Plaster is getting smaller every day.
Dwindle dwindle llfle Plaster.
Oaly so a little faster.
Too are getting- very po-oni;
Please do not much longer b we us.
I P any money is spent this fall. In
deciding the election it will be by
the democrats. There will be no
slush fund raised by the republicans
and there is every indication that the
election will be the cleanest for a long
The railroad and labor vote can now
be turned to the republican side and
tbe fight against Patterson and his
gang is in this way sure to tell.
Vote for the republican ticket ard
thus record your pro'.est against Pat-
terson. Now Welch has a chance for an easy
winning on a strale-ht clean fight.
Cluan men as a rule on both sides.
It ought to bt a cleat fight.
There ought to be a strong vote for
the republican ticket.
How to Prevent Croup.

jected to attacks of croup. Whenever
an attack Is coming on my wife glvee

It always prevents tbe attack. It is a
household necessity in this county aod
no matter what else we run out of it

Omaha Oct. 22 Can any good

see. Scornful Uotonian cynical New
Yorker doubtiog Chicigoao use tbe
precious days that remain of Ootober
and come to look upon the evanescent
beauties or tbe "Trans-Mis-sUsippi
and International Exposition "
Do not judge it by its name
which is clumsy enough to spoil any
ordinary sbow. The wlss man will
not prate of stockyards art and prairie
Pbilistlnirtro either without a j uroey
to see for bleat-elf. Grant that Omaha
has not ia the pat figured largely in
the annals of culture that it has not
been known as an art center or an
abode of tbe beautiful. Do not there-
fore imagine that Omaha's ideal of
sculpture is a cow modeled in butter or
a bog in lard. Do not suppo-e that she
measures paintings by the square foot
or muslo by tbe number of trombones
In tbe band.
It is now some years since tbe effete
east began gradually to abandon tbe
time honored belief that cities where
catt'e congregate on tbe hoof mu.t
necessarily bow to comp'ete abasement
before cities where tbe ca'tle appear
as beeft-teak and bides. (Jbicaso tus
won reluctant welcome to the holy al-
liance of metropolitan culture. Now
Omaba is knocking at the door. Out
on tne Drown Diurrs overlooking tne
muddy Missouri in a spot far more un-
attractive by nature than Cbioago's
Jackson Park citizens of Omaba and
of Nebra-ka at large have wrought an
other modern miracle.
THE WHITE CITY RESTORED.
When the great palaces by Lake
Mlchlgao met tbeir eod in ki a ly cruel
flame when the graceful peristyle
and the golden goddees tell in common
ruin men aiu that the century's
dream was past. O her years might
witners greater achievements more
enduring structures more marvelous
transformations but ibis eiirbt could
never be repeated. In tbe min they
were right lboe who vii ed Nash-
ville a tear azo aod saw tbe Teonecsee
Centennial exposition were pleased
wi b several of the budding? admired
tbe Parthenon commended tbe general
effect but to speak frankly the imi
tation of tbe architecture of '93 was
dieappo ntiog. It threatened to belit
tle a treasured memory. On so small
a scale these white staff structur-s
contrasting with tbe colors of tbe
muddy lagoon? and tbe rack coarse
grass looked cteap aod petty in the
dazzling southern sunshine.
But in Omaba tbougb here as well
comparisons are dangerous there Is no
such disappointment. Profiting by tbe
experience of Naebville tbe builders
ol this latest summer city lavished all
their resources oo one grand group of
glistening walls and towering pinna-
cles surrouodlrg a "grand canal" or
Vourt of honor" not far from half a
mile in length. They have attempt d
no side canals no euoo'dioate group
no wooded island." Tnere Is mjch to
rce oukide oftr is grand court it is
true; commercial structures erected by
corporations out-dj rexbiblts of many
kinds an extensive "Midway" and
many other features tbe whole cov
ering a large tract of ground.
THE HEART OF THE EXPOSITION.
But the heart of the great exhibition
the center of its attractions the part
that will endure la history as a dls-
tloot aad worthy architectural ac
hievement is this noble water ave
nue lined from end to end with lory
and spoilt s buildings. It certainly
recalls tbougb course it does not
equal the Court of Honor st Chicago
that unforgotteo vision of delight. At
the western end is tbe government
building which is both the most im
pressive single bulldlog on the grounds
andhe best expositioj building so far
erected by the national government.
It Is a R loalsfaaoa structure with a
gilded dome of graceful proportions.
At the opposite end ol tbe canal rise
twotowers of the tvpe seen in Chioago
on the Mining and Electricity buildings
Between these commanding heights
tbe skyline on either side is broken by
cornices and pediments similar io gen-
eral effect to those of five years ago.
There are the same broad promenades
between tbe buildings and tbe edge of
tbe lagoon; the same arcbed bridges:
tbe same effect of harmony and digni
fied solidity. At the western end. In
front of tbe Government building tbe
canal widens intoatrefoil-sh-tped basin
JUO reel across at oae side of which is
a fountain the latter more beautiful
bynirbt than by day. Tbe presence
of a tall mast with yard used for ex-
hibltioos by the life-saving crew mars i
this end of the canal: but its general
appearance looking from the plaza
eastward is decidedly impoi-ing.
A most pie ad tig minor feature of the
eastern end of the grand court is tbe
winding covered pfsage-way leading
from building to building with double
rowsof columns on which vioes bave
been permitted to climb. The curves
of this porch or gallery enclose bright
hued beds of flowers and shrubs re-
mindiogone of the Italian garders with
belr summer bouse' found on some
fine private estates ia h! country.

Condition of Arizona Cattle.
Tbe following lines from tbe

fulness of Arizona catt'e: A remark
able circumstance in connection with
tne cooaitioi or tne heras oa toe ran
ges of Ar'zma Is tbe universal health
tness of tbe 'cattle. Epidemics such
as carry off thousands of animals io
other cattle raic-ing districts are al
most entirely unknown in Arizona the
air being so pure and and tbe condi
tions favorable to aniual life so nearly
perfect tbat the germs of disease have
no cbance to develop. There
are no blizzards to des'.roya whole

riations of the temprature to ctuse

In abort Arizona is tbe stock breeders'
paradise. It has been estimated that
the grazing lnds of Arizona are can-
ablej t maintain! nt 8000000 head-of.cat-
tle each rear. Ten years ago it wa- es-
timated that there were 4000000 head
of cattle feeding oo tbe grama grass
of its p ains and it is not overestimat
ing to juuVe tbat tbe number
has since tbat time remained the same.
Cattle High Hogs Low.
Cattle are high. They are aleo
"carce. Ask the butohe's If this is not
true. A Sherman bu'eher tells tbe
democrat that he can scarcely Had beef
enouen io supply nis trade aod some
times Is fearful that he will run out be-
fore he can receive another supply.
He says at the prices. 8 to 2 1-2 cents
there is no money in beef and tbat tbe
price ought to be from 10 to 15 cents
to make any money. On the other
band bogs are plentiful and low io
rice but tbe old price on ttork must
bemairtained ia order to get hack
part of the loss on beef. It takes three
or four y ars to reverse tbe situation
in beef but hogs can be high one year
and very cheap the next Hih beef
has caused a rush of cattle to market
aod tbe magnificent ranges of tbe
southwest are nearly. destitute of cat
tle. There will be a spurt to raise
rattle and in a few years beef will be
cheap again. Exchange.
Demand For Small Horses.
A gentleman who shipped some
range hors-s loan eastern state re
cently f. und a rather surprising- state
of affairs io regard to tbe size of the
bora-s demanded. Be bad selected

ing that theee woud fell mot-t readily

the last horses to be sold the snasnn

pooies tbat could be sold at $25 to $35
were a I picked up at once and a
good many more cou'd have been

the demand for the little ores came

The Horse Market.
Oue of tbe redeeming features of
tbe torse aod mule ei-uation is tbe
strong demand apparent f-jr tbe rnge-
bred horse. During tbe month one
firm here has t-old 1150 bead of the
unbroken westerners aod other firms
bave bandied altogether nearly 5u0
head. While well-brotceo good-fleshed
native bor-es have been foing

or less or none at all thrse rangers

tbe way from $25 to $3o in car lal
lots' and frequently in retail lots $30
to $4o per betd. Counting tbe cost
of breakl-g the western horses are
bringing a good deal more money
than the native kinds. This feature
of tbe market is a source of gratifica-
tion to those wbo have been trying to
build up the market for this class at
