Administration organs roared because
Bryan didn't raise a regiment at the
first note of war ; they roared when he
did raise a regiment ; and now they
roar because lie has resigned.
The coining session of the Nebraska
legislature has important work before
it , and we feel certain of the approval
by the governor of all meritorious
measures adopted by the assembly.
Secretary * Gage estimates that the
standing army will need an appropri
ation of $145,119,000 next year as
against $24,600,000 this year ; and the
navy $39,115,000 , against $29,900,000
this year. Imperialism costs money.
There is a very general demand
throughout th ° state for the abolition
of the offices known as "secretaries of
the state board of transportation. " and
we believe the legislature will this
winter take steps to relieve the people
of the state from the necessity of pay
ing § 6.000 in useless salaries for these
' 'secretaries" who have no power , and
who do practically nothing but draw

A story is going the rounds of the
northwestern press to the effect that
Senator Mutz so influenced the school
joard of his district after election that
they discharged a lady teacher and em
ployed him in her stead. As nearly as
we can learn , the story has practically
no foundation in fact , the senator hav
ing merely accepted the situation until
such time as the young Jady could as
sume her duties in the school room.
This being true , it shows the venality
of editors who will twist an act of
ourtesy into one which all men would
How easy it is to make official re
ports that may bo used by designing-
persons to decieve the public. A late
Monthly summary of finance and com
merce of the United States , says that
the currency in circulation increased
during the preceding year $187,755,804.
and the figures are quoted to show
what is being done to satisfy the clamor
for more money But the same report
shows a like amount as the increase for
the same period of the reserves in
national banks alone , so that as a mat
ter of fact there is less 11101103 * in actual
circulation than a year ago.
A few years ago the republican party
posed as a great friend of the farmers
of this state , and visions of twenty-five
sugar factories were conjured up to se
cure votes for "protection. " The far
mers of Cherry county were given a
free trip to Norfolk , two years ago , and
republican organs openly asserted that
if McKinley was elected the factories
spoken of would be built. lie was
elected , and what is the result ? No
factories have been built , the sugar
trust has waxed fat and saucy , Hawaii
has been annexed so cheap labor can
compete with Nebraska sugar beet
raisersCubaForto Rico and the Philip
pines are almost ours , " and the tariff
remains the same. There is danger of
Illinois and Indiana going democratic
in 1900 , so all kinds of sugar factories
are being projected in these states.
Will the Iloosiers and Suckers swallow j
this sweetness ?
Bv its adoption of the initiative and
referendum system South Dakota comes
nearer to having a democratic form of
government than any other state in the
union. If five per cent of the people
petition the legislature to pass a certain
law , that law must be passed and sub
mitted to the people for a final vote.
If the law is then adopted , it is a law
which no court can annul. The ex
periment is being watched with great
interest , and should it be successful it
will undoubtedly be tried by other
states. "We are inclined to believe
though that five per cent is too small a
proportion of the voters to initiate leg
islation , and believe the law should re
quire at least ten or twenty per cent.
B } * this system the lobby which dis
graces everj * meeting of the state legis
lature will to a great extent be deprived
of its influence , and even though the
initiative be never resorted to the pres
ence of the law upon the statutes will
have a tendency to suppress corrupt
The eastern democrats and populists
are now beginning to see in W. J.
Bryan a leader of men , and the next
president of the United States. The
New Tork World , among other eulo
gistical comment , pavs the son of Ne
braska the following tribute : Mr.
Bryan is opposed to the imperialistic
idea , it being directly antagonistic to
the idea and ideals which have been
cherished by the American people since
the signing of the declaration of inde
pendence. Bryan says , -'heretofore ,
greed has perverted the government
and used its instrumental interference
for private gain ; but now the very
foundation principles of our govern
ment are assaulted. " And with his
old skill for crystallizing in a phrase
the dominant idea in his mind he de
clares that "this nation cannot endure
half republic and half colony half free
and half vassal. " Mr. Bryan , contin
ues the World , has lost none of his
daring and de-cterity as a political op
portunist with brilliant gifts of leader
ship. Two years ago he polled 6,502-
925 votes as the champion of 16 to 1 ,
whichhe , maintains will continue to be
the paramount issue until correctly
Live Stock Notes ,
Recent sales of American hordes in
England were made at very satisfactory
prices. Carriage horses sold from $145
to $275 each , and cart horses from $140
to $175 each. It is said that the ex
porters made satisfactory profits on the
From an article in the Market Basket
we learn that it required an average of
i 4J- pounds of shelled corn to produce a
i pound of pork during an average period
| of four weeks , and 4J pounds of corn
j meal to produce the same result. In
! other words , dry shelled corn produces
i more pork per bushel than will the
corn when ground into meal. Corn is
worth three times as much as oats , for
J. M. Conner of Bennett , Wyoming ,
has purchased two car loads of thor
oughbred Shorthorns , which he imme
diately put on his ranch near Saratoga.
These are the best Shorthorn cattle that
have ever gone into the state. The
herd is headed by the Scotch bred bull
Lancaster Comet , and includes some of
i the best .Shorthorn cows obtained at the
sale of S. G. Crawford of Lohrville ,
Iowa. Mr. Couriers intends to raise
thoroughbred bulls for sale in the west.
A new disease among sheep has been
identified at Rawlins. It is termed
"loco" by the sheepmen. Its distinct
characteristics are an apparent saliva
tion analogous to calomel salivation
among mankind. The lower jaw of
the sheep is seen to suppurate , the
tee ; h in jaw get loose enough to pull
out by the fingers. They lose llesh
and get generally % ion the lift. " It is
said to arise from the sheep grazing in
the fall of the year on the short grass
covering the alkali flats.
The western papers are filled now
adays with accounts of depredations by
gray wolves. One paper tells how 40
head of horses were stampeded over a
cliff in Wyoming and killed. The
Fort Pierre Journal tolls of many
ranchmen employing hunters , and one
or two ranchmen near Pouglas , Wyo. ,
have offered to pay a special tax of
$1.00 per head on cattle in order to in
crease the wolf bounty. We have
heard of sove'.i gray wolves in Cheriy
count- , and our stockmen should
watch for the animals , when they come
from the mountains this winter.
Nearly 40,000 sheep wintering at the
South St. Paul , New Brighton , Minn. ,
and other stock yards in the vicinity ,
says the Journal of Agriculture , are to
be sent to Iowa and Missouri. This
strange situation has been brought
about in midwinter by the formation of
a trust bv the Minneapolis millers and
the sudden rising of the price ot wheat
screenings from o to $8 50 a ton. This
iricc is practically prohibitory , render
ing it necessary for the o\vner.s to ship
their sheep where they can be fed on
corn meal. It is said the cattlemen
are contemplating a similar move.
The St. Joseph , Mo. , Stock Yards
Daily Journal , evidently does not credit
the stories that have been sent out of
late regarding the heavy cattle short
age. In a recent issue that Journal
says : "Predictions are already being
made of a shortage of stock cattle for
1899 , and that marketings of fat cattle
will decrease a million. There is more
danger of an oversupply of both than a
decrease. For the past few years every
farmer or ranchman who had it female
critter bred her ; few calves have been
vealed , and spayed heifers are a rarity
on the market. There will be plenty
of cattle for 1S99 , so there is little need
of feeders to become agitated at this
time as to where the supply will come
Narcisse Jackson , a quarter breed
Sioux Indian belonging on the Rose
bud reservation , has been arrested by
Deput3r United States Marshal Somers
and taken to Chamberlain for pre
liminary examination before Commis
sioner Tidrick. It is alleged that the
prisoner commenced operations by in
vading the ceded Sioux land region
north of White rive-rand stealing cattle
from John Q. Anderson , a prominent
white .stockman. The cuttle were
then taken to the interior .of the ceded
lands , 100 miles or more from their
home range , and as soon as he could
negotiate a sale he disposed of the
stolen animals to another white stock
man. Suspicion was aroused , which ,
when investigated , resulted in the dis
covery of the theft and the arrest of
Jackson , as stated. Northwestern
Colonel Eli Titus , of the Santa Fe
railroad , is of the opinion that the
shipments of Texas and Indian Terri
tory cattle into Kansas this month will
fall fully 50 per cent short of the same
time last year. Young cattle are
bringing high prices in Texas , and the
Texas cattlemen show more disposition
to put cattle on full feed than in former
years , owing to the liberal cotton and '
corn crops in that big state. Texas ,
farmers are fast acquiring the habit of i
feeding cattle instead of selling stock to
farmers or ranchmen in other portions
of the country to fatten for the market.
The cattle sent from Texas to northern
states during the past season fell nearly
100,000 head behind last year , and it is
more than probable that the numbers
will continue to decrease from year to
year. Texas has an abundanee'of feed
within her borders , and cattle can bo
fattened just as well in that state as
they can be in Illinois or Iowa.
Isaac T. . Pryor has just purchased
one thousand head of two and three-
year old cattle of a firm in Ardmore ,
Indian Territory .at $25 per head. They
are said to be exceptionally good cattle.
They are in the Otoe reservation , and
will be exporte 1 to Cuba. Mr. Pryor ;
has forwarded about seven thousand |
cattle to Cuba since the close of the
vrar. National Stockman.
