THE FABM2ES' INSTITUTE.
To the Editor: The proposition
offered in your Tuesday's issue by
Wesley Iewis in relation to the
farmers of Lincoln county organ
izing" a farmers' agricultural asso
ciation (or if Mr. Xewis will accept
the new name of farmers institute)
is a proposition that should be en
couraged by the citizens of North
Platte in every manner possible.
Having had the pleasure ot at
tending several of these institutes
during the past two years, I think
that for meetings where genuine,
practical information was the ob
ject that these institutes excel an3r
thing I have" ever attended.
Western Nebraska is commenc
ing- to look up and forward to a
better and brighter future. 'Its
present residents and those who
will come to our county need just
such an organization effected as
has been mentioned by Mr. Lewis.
He should have the help and en
couragement of our citizens and
the press of the county, and a
meeting should be called some time
in February to effect such an or
This -meeting should
hogs and other stock, cannot
be solely a farmers' association,
managed and controlled only by
farmers.for if organized in any oth
er way it will be a failure and farm
ers will refuse to attend.
A meeting of this kind where
there can be an interchange of ideas,
of the ways, means, methods and
systems now in use in our county
to successfully grow crops ot every
character, either with or without
of feeding" cattle or
be of great help to the agricultural
interests of this portion of the
state and, to North Platte.
By all means Mr. Lewis should
be assisted and his proposition
carried to a successful issue. Mr.
Lewis, although at present en-
rnrfrl in f frjrli?nnr crlinnl iti rrr?fr
to help out the farm, is one of our
countv farmers. Who is the next

Pearl buttons, concerning "the
infamous McKinley duty of i4J per
cent," on which we heard so much
from our democratic friends prior
to the disastrous elections of 1892
and 1894, are not perceptibly
cheaper to-day than they then were.
But somebody one Uncle Sam
has lost something by the "tariff
reform" that dealt with them. In
1892 the income collected as duty
on pearl buttons was $428,048: dur
ing the first ten months of 1895 it
wes$241,193. In 1893 the foreigner
paid $113,537 as toll tariff for
selling his manufactures of shell
and mother of pearl in the United
States. During the first ten
months of the present year he paid
but $26,282. In 1893 McKinley
tariff foreign makers of decorated
earthenware paid $4,022,656 as cus
tom duties; for the first ten months
of this year they paid but $2,291,-j
444. The Canadians paid $164.792 !
as tariff on eggs m 1893, and only
$78,160 in 1895, and yet eggs are
neither cheaper or better now than
In 1893 the revenue by tariff on
foreign paintings was $313,015. In
1895 it has been $9,069 for the first
ten months. And yet foreign works
of art are not peddled-at a thirtieth
part of their former price. In 1893
the revenue of duties on cotton
laces, edgings, etc;, was $7,688,399;
in the first ten months ot 1895 it
was $5,694,481. Iu 1893 the govern
ment drew a' revenue or $4,596,481
from duties on? silk dress goods,
and in 1895 of but '$2,718,657; and
yet many who were abl&. to -wear
silk in 1893 are content with- wool
and cotton in 1895. In 1893 the lux
ury of velvet paid $2, 179, 961 as tariff
revenue; in 1895 $371 877 was col
lected from the same source. In
1893 our imports of woolen goods
contributed $36,451,522 to the treas
ury; during the first ten months of
1895 $20,698,265 was the sum of the"
collections, and yet the woolen
goods of 1893 carried a far less
percentage of shoddy than those of
1895, and, quality being considered,

Sound financiers believe that busi

fact that there are no overstocks of
merchandise in the factories, as
there were at the beginning- ot 1893;
that there are no big- lines of doubt
ful credits out, as there were prior
to the great national business
clean-up; that business houses and
banks have been running- close to
shore for two years and have just
about disposed of their old stocks
and bad paper. There is no danger
of a panic now because the country
has reached business liard pan.

have mostly been weeded out. If
