Anarchy in'a nutshell.

little in advance of the procession.
Last Monday morning the.govern-.

And now the Bryan democrats
and populists are busy circulating
the story that there is a base combi
nation on between Secretary Mor
ton and Senator Manderson which
will result in the return of the lat
ter to the U. S. senate by means of
democratic votes in the legislature.
During the past year, notwith
standing the great financial storm
which swept the country from end,
only ten banks in Nebraska suc
cumbed to the depression,and of this
number but two collapsed entirely.
This is a record of which the state
may well feel proud.
On Thursday the house passed
the Wilson bill,income tax included,
by a majority of sixty-four. A few
democrats voted against it, but the
kickers cut little figure. The sen
ate will consider the measure this
week, and indications are that it
will pass that body.
If Colonel Cody will carry out
his scheme of bringing a colony of
Quakers to his big ranch near
North Platte, remarks the State
Journal, he will win the hearty ap
proval of the people of Nebraska.
There is nothing better in the
world than the genuine Quaker,
such as they grow near Philadel

already being used in connection
with the pop nomination for con
gress to succeed Kem. As a candi

Holcomb carried this congressional
district, but if the republicans put
up a clean and popular man, which
they must and will do, they can
elect their candidate.
Few men who have died in this
decade x to whom the text, "Man
goeth to his long home and mourn

more appropriately than in the
death of George W. Childs, who de
parted life Sunday night. It is a
beautiful tribute to a noble, unsel
fish life, and an object lesson not
to be lost.

law-abiding citizens, not given to
acts of violence, and in case of a

the same peaceable manner which
characterized their actions in the

bait worked like a charm upon the
populist members, says the Bee,

The West Union Gazette, one of
the mouth-pieces of O. M. Kem, the
misfit congressman from this dis

bosh! It is not on account of
ill-health that Kem has decided not
to be a candidate. This early he
has seen the handwriting on the
wall, "weighed in the balance and
found wanting," and well knows
that he could not secure a renomi
nation much less a re-election. Of
all miserable failures as law-makers,
Kem stands pre-eminently at
the head, and as for his service to
his constituents it actually amounts
to nothing. We would like to hear
of one populist in the Sixth district

How the income tax, as passed
by the house, may affect Nebraska,
is told in the statement of W. E.
Annin, the Washington corres
pondent of the State Journal: "A
carload of fat steers in Nebraska
will sell on an average for 1,000 to
$1,200 and the hogs fattened with
them 300. The farmer who fat
tens and sells three carloads of
steers and the hogs usually fattened
with them will be compelled to pay
an income tax. He is not even al
lowed to deduct the "price he paid
for the-cattle in case he buys them.
By this provision every creamery
and cheese factory must pay a tax
on every dollar's worth manufac
tured above 84,000. One that
makes S75,000 worth, and there are
many which do, would be compelled
to pay over $l,4u0 tax. By anoth
er provision practically every loan
association and every building asso
ciation must pay on its income
over 84,000. It is not clear but
that merchants will be compelled
to pa' on their sales,- deducting
only expenses and interest, as the
rest of the goods can hardly be in

Chief Clerk Harry Shaffer of the
State Board of Agriculture is busy
preparing the statistical tables to
appear in the forthcoming annual
report of the Board. The statiscal
tables will be of especial value this
year, as they will afford Nebraska
people interested in agriculture an
opportunity to compare last year's
results with those of more pros
perous years in the past history of
The first table shows the relative
proportions between the improved
and unimproved lauds of the state.
In 1893 the abstract of the asses
sors returns shows that tor Hie first
time in the history of the state the
improved lands exceed, the unim
proved. The acreage of improved
lauds for 1893 is reported as 15,-
289,858; unimproved, 13,041,457.
In 1892 the figures were 13.270,422
and 13,345,809 respectively. The
following brief tabulated statement
will show the number of acres of
improved and unimproved land in
Nebraska for four years past:
Year. Improved. Unimproved.
1890 11,719.359 14,228,821
1891 12,050,219 14,266,540
1892 13,276,442 13,545,869
1893 15,289,S59 13,041,457
The average assessed valuation of
improved lauds has also increased,
as will be seen by the following:
Year Avr. Total.
1890 83.89 845,503,415
1891 3.82 47,020,378
1892 3.72 49,357,703
1893 3.94 60,294.544
Nebraska's improved lands are
devoted to cultivation as follows:
One of the most significant fea
tures of the report is the showing
in regard to the falling off in the
acreage devoted to corn and the in
creased acreage devoted to wheat,
as compared with the year 1892. In
1893 Nebraska farmers cultivated
3,870,689 acres of corn. The year
before they cultivated 3,981,754
acres. In 1891 they devoted 4,538,
009 acres to corn and in 1890 they
planted 4,317,682 acres. In the
three years following the year 1891
the decrease in the corn acreage
amounted to 667,993. !

BRITISH TIN TLATE TRADE.
Bejolclng In Wales at the Proposed Re
duction In Oar Duty.
In the Swansea district the procedure
in connection with the abolition of the
increased duties imposed on English
produce imported by America is looked
forward to with the very greatest inter
est because it is certain that included in
the repeal will be the increased duty on
tin plates, which has had such a serious
effect on the staple Swansea industry.
At present nearly half of the mills in
the trade are idle, and directly it is cer
tain about when the repeal will come
into force there may be general prepara
tions for a restart of the 200 nulls or so
But much depends on the date fixed
for the McKmley duty ceasing and the
old low duty taking its place. It will be
remembered that the date of the imposi
tion of the McKinley tariff was pretty
wall known long before it came into
force, and the conseauence was that
there was very active buying by Ameri
cans in order to get the plates delivered
at the lower duty. The date reached, or
at least the last, day on which the ship
ment was possible for delivery before
that date, there was an immediate ces
sation of buying, and a stagnation set in
which continues even now.
This state of things might have been
to, a certain extent avoided if makers
had so arranged the output as to prevent
the American market being glutted as it
was before the act came into force.
Bather the reverse will be the case now.
Till it is known when the repeal will
have effect, buyers will only buy such
plates as are absolutely required for im
mediate consumption, and the date once
reached there should be an immediate
demand on a large scale for plates.
The great hope is that the repeal will
be as soon as possible. It is believed that
the repeal could become law next month,
and the sooner the better. Of all things,
it is hoped it will not be put off till June,
as suggested, for that month is the can
ning time, and it would be a very bad
thing for the tin plate trade were the re
duction of the tariff to be put off till
then, for canners in their own interest
would naturally only buy as they wanted
plates, for any purchased in excess of
their actual requirements to the date
would be at a loss to them. Liverpool
Cor. South Wales News.
The small ring of capitalists who reck
oned upon McKinleyism to shut out
Welsh tin plates from the United States,
and who have since discovered that they
were sadly out of their reckoning, are
naturally "bucking" against the Wilson
bill. The material reduction in tariff
virtually involves the extinction of tin
plate making in America. Cardiff West
Assuming, of course, that the measure
is not destroyed beyond recognition in
its progress through the houso of repre
sentatives and the senate, the reduction
on tin plate from 2 1-5 cents per pound
to 1 cent per pound is a' great concession
and ought to stimulate exports from
South Wales and so make up for the dis
tress of 1891-2. Pall Mall Gazette.

Labor and capital are and must be

men to earn an honest livingis absolute

toward the labor it employs, and which
it needs, is also absolutely wrong. These

A Cfeicago View of the Glass and Building
Trades as Affecting labor.
Mr. George F. Kimball, the well known
johber of window and plate glass at
Chicago, has submitted for publication
the following discouraging views re
garding tho trade:
"It is difficult to speak of the condi
tions in the glass trade without seeming
to be a prophet of hard times. The tariff
agitation, pointing to a revision that ap
parently means disaster to the manufac
turing and jobbing branches of the glass
trade, has affected sales until it hurts ev
ery, one engaged in the business from
the laborer up and down. Speaking in
general terms, I should say the volume
of business in glass has been decreased
fully 20 per cent as compared with last
year, and if it had not been for tho
World's fair and the business which fol
lowed as a result or its presence Chi
cago's glass trade would havo been at
least 33 per cent less than it was a year
"Studying tho situation as carefully as
may be, there seems to be no important
factor in tho trade disturbanco outsido
of the tariff revision proposed by the ad
ministration. The glass trade has suf
fered ever since Mr. Cleveland came into
power from tho knowledge that the tariff
schedule would bo lowered and other
wise disturbed. Tho result has been a
decrease in purchases by jobbers, a con
sequent reduction of manufacture, fol
lowed by the discharge of large numbers
of workingmen and the shutting down
of aany large plants. Today only two
plate glass factories are running, and less
than 83 per cent of tho window glass
factories are at work.
"The jobber who has any stock at all
is glad to dispose of it at cost, and tho
man who has no stock is waiting to see
what congress is going to do before he
"Another factor in the business is the
absence of the men who intend to build.
Ordinarily permits are taken out in the
fall for buildings so the foundation may
be laid and everything put in condition
for completion early in tho spring. So
the fall permits indicate in a measure
what is to be done in the way of build
ing during the ensuing year. The per
mits issued this fall show that very little
construction is contemplated during tho
winter and coming spring. Taking all
the indications, I cannot see where the
glass manufacturers and jobbers are to
get any business in the immediate fu
ture, and I do not look for anything like
a resumption of favorable conditions be
fore late in the summer of 1894 or early
in the fall.
"This is bound to affect labor in tho
glass manufacturing and kindred trades.
If. the duty on glass is reduced 50 per
cent, it must, in my opinion, come off
the laborers' wages. The material in a
pane of glass does not amount to any
thing as compared with the cost of la
bor in that pane for instance, a pane of
glass selling for $100 in Chicago has raw
material in it worth perhaps $3. Any
reduction in the selling price must come
from the cost of labor. Take our polish
ers in this country, and they are paid
$2.50. In Belgium women are employed
to do the same kind of work and are paid
20 cents a day for it. If the duty on
Belgium glass is taken off, the American
polisher can expect to see Lr. wages cut
down just to the extent of the reduction
in the tariff. It is practically determined
already by the large manufacturers that
they will have to cut wages 50 per cent
if the tariff proposed by the Wilson bill
is put into effect.
am a Democrat myself, and most of
my men voted for tho Democratic candi
date, at the last election, but in the face
of the situation not one of them would
do it again if the opportunity offered."

populists, John P. St. John has cast
his lot with them.

Tariff Tinker Wilson has insinuated
that wage earners are being "forced" to
sign the petitions that are pouring into
congress against his bill of destruction.
We are afraid that the coercion screw
applied from- the White House to the
chairman of the ways and means com
mittee must have affected that gentle
man's ideas of fair play. This is a free
country, and people are not generally
"forced" to do things against their will.
There are more than 60,000,000 of peo

Mr. Albert Favorite, of Arkansas
City. Kan., wishes to give our
readers the benefit of his experience
with colds. He says "I contracted
a cold early last spring that settled
on my lungs, and had hardly re
covered from it when I caught
another that hung on all summer
and left me with a hacking cough
which I thought 1 never would get
rid of. I had used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy some fourteen years
sigo with much success, and con
cluded to try it again. When T had
got through with one bottle my
cough had left me, and I have not
suffered with a cough or cold since.
I have recommended it to others,
and all speak well of it," 50 cent

Gentlemen: We are in receipt of your esteemed favor
of the 8th inst., and have decided, owing to the back
wardness of the season, to accept your offer on the lot of
Overcoats and Suits which you order, (although they are
some of the most desirable portions of 'our stock to-day),
and which we have shipped as per invoice enclosed here-
You are doubtless aware that these goods are billed
to you at about 5U per cent of their cost of production.
However, on account of the general depression in trade
in large financial centers, we are willing to accept your
proposition, but wish to warn you at the same time that
such prices as those you offer are not likely again to-pre-vail
for many a day. Awaiting your further commands,
we remain veiy truly yours,
