Settling the "Sand Hills. '
Senator Manderson has been mak
ing an investigation into the con
dition of the "sand hill region" of
Nebraska, and the result of his
study is a determination to ask con
gress for laws which will more
closely meet the needs of , that dis
trict and accelerate its settlement.
He finds that there are millions of
acres of land in the northwestern
part of the state which cannot be
devoted to agriculture under the old
system of small homesteads, and
which are yet too productive to be
given over entirely to the free use
of the cattle barons. The senator
has formed no definite plan as yet,
but believes with the leading men
in the sand hills region that a mod
ification of the law giving the set
tlers an opportunity to acquire
enough land to maintain a moderate
nerd of cattle would oe entirely aa
vantageous to the district and to
he state. He has addressed a cir
cular letter to all of the counties
interested, and hopes to receive re
plies which will be of assistance in
raminer a new and helpful law.
There can be no doubt of the
richness of the region under con
sideration. The valleys are fertile
and well watered, and the hills are
covered in the summer with nu
tritious grasses. At the same time
he district will not support a dense
population. An ordinary home
stead will not suffice for the needs
of the settler. He ought to be
given an opportunity to acquire
more than 160 acres without too
arce an expenditure. The situation
calls for a compromise between the
homestead law which has peopled
he rich Nebraska prairies and the
right of free range which has made
the large cattle "man such an enemy
o the settler in nearly all of the
western counties. Senator Mander
son has undertaken a good work for
Nebraska. State1 Journal

John M. Thurston to J. Bur

that it has made every honorable
endeavor to redeem everv pledge.
Had the republican party continued
in power, 1 believe there would have
come a fair aud reasonable solution
of the money question without anv
disturbauce of the confidence and
credit of the country. The great
outcry of today against the present
attitude of a democratic adminis

a democratic congress, comes from
the men who, either directly or in

party. So far as I am individually
concerned, I believe the welfare of

nothing from democracy; and you

upon a platform waiting-for a train; so,

Buried in thoaght. thia stranger left the
platform to walk upon the 'track, not
noticing an approaching engine. One
moment more and there would have been
an indistinguishable corpse. Silently,
suddenly, Edwin Booth seized this
stranger and lifted him almost bodily
upon the platform. So close came the
engine that it struck the stranger's heels
as they left the track. "Do you know
who that man is?" asked Mr. Ford, the
well known manager of Baltimore, who
witnessed the thrilling scene.
"No," replied Booth.
