THE DISTRICT FATE.
A district fair for Western Ne
braska, first suggested br Judge
Hinman two years ago, is now
being agitated by the Record and
some of our more enterprising peo
ple, and The Tribune falls in read
ily with the movement. There is
no question but tue irrigation
movement now being- pushed so
vigorously in the Platte valley west
of the one hundredth meridian will
continue until everv available acre
is brought -under a ditch. This
means that thousands of acres ot
irrigated land will be placed on sale,
and it will be necessary to have the
attention of well-to-do eastern farm
ers who contemplate a change of
residence called to this section. One
admirable way to do this is to have
a. district fair at which can be dis
played the products of the irrigated
lands. By uniting the counties ot
Dawson, Lincoln, Keiths Cheyenne,
Deuel, Banner and Scott's Bluffs in
this move a fair could be held which
would attract attention all over the
east. It could be made of such
magnitude as to induce the rail
roads of the country, and especially
those, west of Chicago, to offer very
low excursion rates, and these re
duced rates would be taken advan
tage of by hundreds of eastern
farmers. Once in this section they
would visit all parts of it, and pur
chase land in the vicinity which
best suited them. The land-owner
in Cheyenne county would ftave just
as good a chance to sell His laud as
the one in Lincoln or Dawson coun-
Beinjr situated near the center ot
the irrigated district, North Platte
is undoubted! the most convenient
and most suitable place to holcTthis
district fair, and we believe that
her citizens will do every thing in
their power toTttake tke fair a suc
cess when once established.
The attention of irrigationists
and business men of the other coun
ties is invited to this matter, and if
they take Tdndly to it and they
certainly shouldNorth Platte will
take tie initiative step'aud the-hrst
fair can be held in the fall of next
It's a good thing; push it along.
A democratic poultry raiser near
Grafton, W. Va., the state from
which Prof. Wilson hails, sent a
Thanksgiving turkey to the presi

cents a pound never before less

turkey sent in tins way is a crow.
On Tuesday 272 bills and-eleven
joint resolutions were introduced in
the senate. The same profusion of
measures marked the second day in
the house. Both Mr. Mercer and
and Mr. Meiklejohn introduced bills
the former asking for an appropria
tion of $100,000 for a branch mint
at Omaha, and $15,000 for the estab
lishment of an assay office in the
s,ame city. Mr. Miklejohn's bill,

The profane press, taking up Mr.
J. Sterling Morton's comparison of
Grover to the president of a bank
and iufisting that he has as good a
right to be continued an indefinite
number of terms in the White house
as the president of a bank has to
stay in office are making it some
what warm. They say that a
president of a bank who . was get
ting very rich himself while the
hbank is lapsing- into bankruptcy
-ould ,be fired pretty suddenly.
JGrover as president to the
jj jgep-jan republic is at his wits

firiari-ial condition, for he permited
the bills that cut down the revenue
without diminishing the expenses
to become laws. But when Grover
first arrived at the White house, he
was a poor man. Today he is
rated- among the millionaires.
There is something very sinster
in this view of the case. State

v The proposition of the Trans
Mississippi congress to hold in 1893
in Omaha a grand exposition of all
the products and industries of the
Trans-Mississippi country is of
great importance to this whole
western country and to Nebraska
and Om.aha especially. It ought
to be taken in hand by a strong
association from Omaha and other
portions of the state, and our now
commencing congress ought to be
induced to financially support the
enteprise as it has assisted the
World's Fair of ,Chicago and the
great southern exposition at At
lanta. The celebrated calf case has
almost had a parallel in a law suit
over a $1.25 pig at Michigantown,
Ind. The owner was sued for
pound charges and he appealed
from the judgment. After three
trials in the circuit court he re
ceived a verdict, with $1.01 ,dam
ages. The costs of. the trial
amounted to over $150.

silver men of all parties, but they
found themselves alone when the
caucus got to business. The dem
o.crats ana republicans wno were
invited to attend excused them
selves, saying they preferred to
stay in their own party organiz
ations. Mr. Teller's declination to
take part in the free coinage caucus
is an indication that the rumor that
he had decided to abandon the re
publican organization and become
