Every Nebraskan is Interested in What
it Does.
The coming session of the legislature
will be especially interesting. After six
years the republicans aro again in con
trol of both houses. A United States
senator will be elected and a host of
other good things should be done. No
matter what your politics, ou will want
to read about the legislature. No mat
ter what paper you read at other times
you should read the Lincoln State Jour
nal during the legislature. It is printed
at the state, capital and devotes more
space to legislative doings than all the
other stato dailies combined. The Jour
nal has jumped away up in the lead,
having the largest circulation in Ne
braska. It is spending more mouoy for
news than its competitors. Col. Bixby
is its daily poet. It also has Walt
Mason. Wm. E. Annin, its Washington
correspondent, serves up Washington
stuff as no other correspondent employed
by Nebraska papers has ever done it
Annin knows Nebraska people and No
braska politicians like a book; his letters
are a great feature. Stories are fur
nished by Conan Doyle, Rndyard Ki .
ling,and a host of others who are regular
contributors to tho world's groatest
magazines. Tho Journal's price has
been cut to 50 .cents per month, without
Sunday, and 65 cents with Sunday. You
should try it awhile. The Semi-Weekly
Journal is only 31.00 per year, and is a
great family paper, almost as good as a
daily for a large class of people The
Journal's phenomenal growth is duo
largely to the reduction in price Jind the
po!icy of attending to its own busmesr,
not presuming to bo a dictator.

Secretary Morton's su?-p-estion
that an improvement be made in the
manner of collecting" agricultural
reports will be received with favor.
While it would be expensive to send
ag-ents to the farms every spring- to
collect data concerning yields, stocks
and general conditions, such re
ports would be of real service to the
farming and commercial classes
and would undoubtedly be worth
their cost. There has been entirdy
too much imagination in the reports
of the agricultural department in
the past, and the introduction of
scientific methods would be an un
mixed blessing to the country. Ex.

IOWA FREIGHT RATS HEARING CHDS
Board Aaxieaa to Settle the Matter Before
Commissioner Da? Retiree.
Des Moines; Dec 81. The hearing
before the Iowa railway commission of
the application of the railway companies
came to an end Saturday evening and
the matter now rests with the commis
sion for decision? It is expected the de
cision will be reached inside of the next
two weeks, in order that Commissioner
Day, retiring member, who has given
much attention to the matter, can join
in the decision. The case has been pre
sented very fully by the attorneys for
the shippers and jobbers, ex-Commissioners
Campbell and .Smith and S. F.
Prouty. The railway companies have
apparently not gone any further than
was necessary to make a case in accord
ance with their desires', and have been
strongly accused of suppressing farts
which would materially Weaken their
position.
Newspapers Should Improve.
New York, Dec. 31. The Rev.
Charles Parkhurst preached a sermon
Sunday morning in which he made in
direct and incidental reference to the
work of the paat yean The people had
learned, he said; that a politician was a
man of expediency and that he might
arrange things in such a manner as omy
a mighty uprising of the people could
undo. In looking over the field of the
future, he said the people should look for
an improvement in the character of the
newspapers. The papers, he said, that

Indianapolis. Dec. 3i. Ex-Congressman
Walt butler of West Union, la.,
whose wife had offered a reward for his
body on the supposition he was dead, is
here and very much alive. Butler acci
dentally noticed the reward in a Chi
cago newspaper and immediately made
himself known at a local newspaper
office. In explanation of his sudden dis
appearance from home two months ago,
he says that the morning of Nov. 22 ha
awoke hearing a trainman call out In
dianapolis.- He says that from the time
he dismissed the school he 'was teaching
in Iowa on Nov. 20 until he arrived here,
his mind was a perfect blank. He says
he at once wrote to his wife but the let
ter was miscarried. Butler has been
working as a book agent. He seems
to be perfectly sane.
When it was suggested that friend3
here might assist him he said he would
not consent to go home on borrowed
money, and expre33ed the determination
to stay till he was ab! to pay his own
fare. He referred frequently to his fail
ure to recall any events attending his
leaving home and his trip to this city,
but frankly admitted that it was all a
blank.
"There was no reason, whatever," he
said, why I should have left. I have a
nice home at West Union, a kind, lov
ing wife and one child, and
no man's domestic relations were
happier than mtne have always
been, The only Wriy 1 account for the
uneasiness is that my letter failed to
reach my wife. It seems strange, though,
that no one of the many people I met
did not say something to me about the
inquiries that were made for me. I
made no concealment of my name or
place of residence. I called upon Mr.
Matthews, Mr. Taggart and Mr. Bynum,
having served with the latter in congress,
and none of them mentioned the fact
that my absence from home had caused
and comment In any ot the papers"
Oelwein, la., Dec. 31. James Butler,
brother of Walter H. Butler, who is hero
conducting the search for the missing
ex-congressman, stated when interviewed
that he placed no confidence in the re
port of the finding of his brother at In
dianapolis, and he believes now, as he
has for the past few weeks, that his

Fort Dodge, la., Dec. 31. Mrs. L. E.'
Castle of Callender has qualified aa jus

husband conducts a drug store there in
her name, and the intention last fall was
to nominate him for the position. Mrs.

BULLS AND BEARS WHITENED. '
Annual Neir Tear's Revel on the Chicago
Board of Trad.
Chicago, Dec. 31. The annual New
Year's revel on the board of trade was
observed today with unusual enthusiasm.
The market waa neglected during the
last hour and at the tap of the bell at
noon every trader on the floor was long
on Racks of flour and short on dignity
The galleries were crowded with people
who had come to see the fun and the per
formance wa3 fully up to expectations.
When the market closed the ball opened.
The festivities began with a series of
bloodcurdling yells and a vivid imita
tion of the ghost dance. A short, fat
trader with a high silk hat, who was
leading the vocal exercises, was sudden
ly cut short in his musical flights by the
swift descent of a bursting sack of flour
With the Bignal every man on the floor
entered energetically into the attempt to
pound every other man with a sack of
flour.
Hats were battered and hurled toward
the ceiling; coats were torn, men were
upset and for half an hour a merry war
was waged in a mist of flying flour.
When the stock of flour was exhausted
the sample tables were robbed of barley,
oat3 and corn and the air was full of
flying missiles until the exhaustion ended
the fun. When it was over the pit
looked as though it had been struck by a
blizzard and the traders resembled a
choice collection of tramps.
