OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER
IT WILL be well for us to under
stand that the laws of Nebraske
must be enforced with such vigoi
and impartiality as to positive ! )
pnd forever discourage the idee
that stealing from the state by an }
one is a virtue and not a vice.
THE Nebraska maximum freight
rate case has been decided by the
United States supreme court to be
invalid. The court holds that the
law is contrary to the Fourteenth
amendment , and that the rate prac
tically amounts to confiscation of
property. The decision does not
affect the right of the state to
make such freight rates , but lim
its the state to a reasonable rate ,
and so the question is still open as
to what is a reasonable rate.
THE difference between the situ
ation in Spain and in the Unitec
States is illustrated by two inci
dents. Spain has been for some
weeks and months trying to place
a loan of 340,000,000. The other
day the house of representatives in
the United States , without more
ado than would be given to the
passage of an ordinary appropria
tion bill , put § 50,000,000 in .the
hands of the president to expenc
as his judgment directs for na
EXTENSION of the homestead
land laws to Alaska is no joke.
The southern part of the territory
is in the same latitude as Scotland ,
central Kuesia "and northern Ger
many , and good wheat is grown in
the valley of the Macken/ie river
farther north than the southern
limit of Alaska. It has been de
monstrated that potatoes can be
grown along the rivers leading into
the Pacific ocean and vegetables of
many kinds can be ripened in the
valley of the Yukon. It has been
the history of the world that the
farmer follows close after the'minei
wherever he may lead. Bee.
LIEUT. C. H. McLiLLAN of the
United States Eevenue Marine ,
now on duty as inspector of the
life saving station service on the
New Jersey coast , has been or
dered to Omaha to superintend
an exhibit of the life-saving ser
vice at the Trans-Mississippi Ex
position. A model station will be
built on the bank of the Grand
Canal , where boats , life lines , ham
mock's , rockets , and other appara
tus for saving life on the water
will be kept , and daily drills in the
use of the same given by the men.
The station will have a keeper and
six men. A novel feature never
before exhibited at any exposition
will be the use of the telephone ,
by the aid of which vessels at sea ,
within signal distance of a lifesaving -
saving station , if in distress , can
send messages by the international
code to the nearest station , and in
turn the station can send it by tel
ephone to a telegraph office.
