In an editorial treating on the
effect of the late rains on the Ne
braska crop prospects, the Inter
Ocean says: It is truly amazing
that the pioneers of the far west
have shown so much pluck during
these two seasons, and they certain
ly deserve the turn in fortune which
seems to have come to them. If a
season of plenty does really come
to them; and of improved prices,
the whole country will share in the
benefits. With our network of
railroads there is no isolation. The
remote frontier and the seaboard
have a unity which was impossible
when this century began, or even
when it bad reached the middle
point. The political effect promises
to be good. With poverty to the
most extreme degree pinching those
far west farmers the very arguments
used against free silver served to
whet their appetite for it. If it
would really bring a ,450-cent. dol

prevailed during the first part of
the week with attendant dust

Secretary Morton, who is fond
of writing letters to his agricultural
friends about smut in wheat, chinch
bugs, the free silver distemper, and
other bucolic afflictions, sent a mis

day which contained a point too
good to be wasted on the prairie
air. "What you want in order to
be prosperous," wrote the secretar'
to his farmer friend, "is notthe free
coinage of silver at the ratio of 16
to 1, or any other ratio, but the es
tablishment of government grist
mills at which you farmers will be
able to deliver 50 cents worth of
wheat and get in return a dollar's
worth of flour. Until some politi-J
cal party puts a demand for these
government grist mills in its plat
form, I don't see why you farmers
should get excited and go around
demanding a change in the currency

The farmers in western Kansas
have built a good many "Jumbo"
wind engines, like the one described
by the Journal a few days ago. and
they find that it is possible to get
an enormousamount of power out
of the wind practically without cost.
The biggest wheel yet made out
there is twenty-seven feet in di
ameter, twenty-one feet long and
has eight fans. It runs when the
wind is blowing from any direction
except due east or west, and the
harder the wind blows the faster it
pumps water into the irrigating
ditches. It is so simple that any
man can build one out of common
materials in a few days, and if it is
well made it will easily last a life
time. Any farmer will be able to
build a "Jumbo" from a description
if he can only get a proper idea of
its workings. Let him take the
fanning arrangement out of an
ordinary fanning mill a"nd place it
upright in a box that will protect
the lower part but give the wind
free access to the upper fans. After
watching this little mill for a few
minutes he will be able to construct
a "Jumbo" und,attach it torik pump

Greeahnt Is Pleased.
Peoria, June IB. J. B. Greenhut,
ex-president of the Distilling and Cattle
Feeding company, seemed to be very
well pleased this morning with the de
cision in the quo warranto case. He
said it was only what had been expect
ed, and that legal proceedings would be
commenced by the owners of the prop
erty leased to the trust to regain pos
session of the same. He contends that
all leases executed to the trust are by
the decision null and void, and should
the stockholders seek to retain posses
sion of the property, suits! in ejectment
will be brought against them. Leases
were for 25 years and were assigned by
the old trust to the Distilling and Cattle
Feeding company. There is no clause
in the leases providing for removal of
betterments at the expiration of life
thereof, and lessees will be apt to de
mand all they are entitled to. There is
a question as to the right of lessees to
remove machinery from distilleries, and
on that a fight will be made. Mr.
Greenhut says the reorganization com
mittee now has nothing to reorganize.
He does not think another combine like

Springfield, Bis., June 13. Attorney
General Moloney, speaking of the deci

as such Judge Gibbons of Chicago did
right in pronouncing a judgment of
civil death against it. The supreme
court also decided that the attorney
general was right in his views of the
law regarding the matter and that the
Distilling and Cattle Feeding company
is no more than a continuation of the
old distillers' cattle feeding trust. The
decision," he continued, "is one of the
ablest opinions ever delivered by the
supreme court of this state. In no un
