SUBSCRIPTION' BATES. One Year, cash in advance, $1.25 Six Months, cash in advance 75 Cents' vEnteredattheKorihPlatte(Nebrasia)postofflceas second-clefismattor. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1. 1897. ItZPUSLICAK' STATE TICKET. For Judge of the Supreme Court, A. M. POST. For University Kegents. C. V. KALEY, J. N. DRYDEN. Republicans of North Platte should make it a point to attend the primaries to-morrow. The refusal of Messrs. Streitz and McNeel to get off- the demo cratic ticket, or allow themselves to be kicked off, is causing the pop ulists to sweat blood. It is precious little sleep that HolcombeandHult mau are enjoying these nights. One week from to-morrow there will be nominated a set of candi dates who will be inducted into of fice the early part of January. This is a republican year in Lincoln county you can read it in the faces of the farmers when the' come to town. It now transpires that the at tendance at the state fair this year was some 8,000 less than last year. There were more visitors in Omaha, but they seemed to have regarded the fair, as sort of a side-show to the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities and did not visit the fair grounds. The secretary ot the treasury was offered $2,000,000 in gold at San Francisco, but replied, ''Don't need it." How quickly a former secre tary of the treasury would have pounced upon it. Anybody can see the changes seven mdnths have wrought, and be glad for the differ ence. u. ne man wiio can t see it is blind. The present high price of wheat has created somewhat of a craze for putting land into wheat and it estimated that the acreage of fall wheat in Nebraska will be forty per cent greater than ever before 'X ne tanner wno puts in an unus ually large acreage of wheat is just as likely to miss as to hit. The 1897 prices may not be maintained in 1898, and the farmer who continues to raise diversified crops will be the winner in the end. One year ago the street corners of North Platte were crowded with men who had nothing to do but to talk politics. To-day things are different. No crowds conjrreirate and littte political talk is heard. Nearly all the men around town who were then idle now have em ployment; the farmers who then came to towij to talk politics are now busy gathering their crops and selling" them at a bijr advance over the 1896 prices. There is a republi can in the "White House at Wash ington. The managers of the Nebraska railroads were highly gratified when J. J. Sullivan was nominated for supreme judge by the demo pops and free silver republicans and since his nomination they, the man agers, have been showering compli ments upon him. - When Sullivan was in the legislature ten yeargago he was classed as a corporation at torney and did not protest against such classification. In later years he continued his affiliations with the corporations.and it is said upon excellent authority that his eleva tion to the bench ot the district court was made possible by the aid ot the railroads. Just how popu lists can consistently support for supreme judge one who. has been so closely allied with the railroads is not easy to comprehend. .Chas. T. O'Farrell, the democratic governor of Virginia, the mother of presidents, in a speech delivered September 11th, said: "I am confi dent that the doctrines of the Chi cago platform will not much longer be masqueraded as democratic prin ciples. Free silver is retreating be fore the returning tide of prosper ity. It can only live on 4hard times.' It is begining to pant for breath al- ready, under the pressure of the ad vance in wheat and the re-opening ot mills, mines and factories. The free silver slogan of last fall, 'as silver falls wheat falls; as silver ad vances wheat advances,' is no longer heard, and the people are fast learning that it is the law of supply and demand, and not the price of silver, that controls the prices of the farmers products and the laboring man's wages. Free, unlimited and independent coinage of silver is doomed, and no strong ; political party of presenter future, will ever put itselt to death "by de claring for it in national conven tion" i Because of the Dingley tariff law, JeverBrothers, limited, of Birken head, England.'one. of the largest soap manufacturing firms in the world, have decided to build in this country a factory and a whole vil lage tor their employes. This firm has a capital of S10, 000. 000, and it purposes spending 510,000,000 in establishing its American work. The design is to reproduce as nearly as possible the town of Port Sunlight and introduce the same profit sharing plan here. DEATH LURKS IN THE MILK. Little That la .Fit For Infants' Use Sold lu the Cities. Columbus, O., Sept. SO. A feature of the morning session of the national con ference of mayors and councilinen that aroused great interest ainoug the dele gates was the reading of a paper con tributed by Nathan Straus of "New York on "The Influence of a iMre Milk Supply on the Death Rate of Children.' Most of the municipal officials here were conversant only to a limited ex tent with the work being done by Mr. Straus in New York City. Its opening statement, that "there is practically no milk delivered for general consumption in cities that is fit to be fed in its nat ural state to young children," was suf ficiently startling to challenge atten tion, if not contradiction. The paper closed with the following appeal: "I think I have fairly demonstrated the proposition that many thousand of in fant lives are annually sacrificed by the neglect to supply the nutriment of chil dren milk Avhich has been subjected to a process of pasteurization. I hold j that neglect to be criminal, and I leave it to you to fix the responsibility for it. j We punish murder with the penalty of death, and yet we allow murder to be committed by the wholesale iu every populous community of this land with no thought of its punishment and little thought of its prevention. I appeal to yon, gentlemen, who are charged with the responsibilities attending the gov ernment of cities, great or small, to study the conditions under which this work is done, and carefully note the re sults which attend the doing of it. I i appeal to you as if you were standing beside a great river iu whose current were constantly swept past hundreds of drowning infants. This stream is a very real thing if people but recognize its existence, and all its yearly tribute of death is paid because of the public neglect of some of the simplest prepau- j tioiis for the saving of children's lives." FAVORS FOR THE FARMERS. Agricultural Department Will Ask Con gress to increase Appropriation. Washington',, Sept. 80. Secretary Wilson of the agricultural department will, in his annual report, ask congress to make a material increase in the ap propriation for at least three branches of the work of liis department. These are: -The bureau of animal industry, the farmers' bulletins and the weather bureau. The secretary says the facil ities of the bureau of animal industry for the inspection of meat intended for foreign shipment are overtaxed, and that the experiment already made by tho bureau in the shipment of butter to En gland should be followed up by more work in this line. He claims that tho shipments already made have produced excellent results, as shown by the fact that a representative of English firms has recently been in Iowa buying up all the available butter supply for export. There is a constantly increasing de mand for the farmers' bulletins and it is the secretary's purpose, if he secures the necessary funds, not only to increase the circulation of the documents, but to largely increase the range of subjects covered. Mr. "Wilson thiuks there should be several' new weather stations. FIVE MEN MEET HORRIBLE DEATH. Overcome by "Mark Damp" In Jermyn o. 1 31 i ne, Near Seraiiton, Pa. Sckaktox, Pa., Sept. 29.

They went cn duty at 3 o'clock and nobody knew of their death until the discovery of the lifeless bodies. Not a man in the party survived to tell the story. CRISIS OF STREET CAR STRIKE. Probable Tbat a Strike Will Be Ordered In Chicago Friday Morning. Chicago, Sept. 29. The crisis of the street "car strike situation will bo reached tonight at the close of another mass meeting of the employes. It is probable a strike will be ordered to take effect at 5 o'clock Friday morning on all lines operated by the Chicago City Railway company.

Liberal Statesman Favors Kccall of Wey. ler and of Granting: Autonomy to Cuba Immediately FrlmeJIiuidter Azcarraga to Hold Over Until Successor Is Chosen. Madrid, Sept. 30. The Spanish cabi net has resigned. The queen has ac cepted the cabinet's resignation, "but has asked General Azcarraga to continue in office until a solution of tho crisis-is found. Her majesty will summon the leaders of the various parties- and tho presidents of tho chambers tomorrow to consult as to the situation. Senor Sa gasta has been telegraphed for and it is believed that the liberal leader will be asked to formal cabinet. Tho niinistry whose resignation has just been an nounced was constituted as follows : Prime Minister and Minister for War General Marcello de Azcarraga. Minister of Foreign Affairs Tho Duke of Tetuau. Minister of Marine Rear Admiral Don Jose M. Beranger. Minister of Finance J. Y. Don Juan Nnvaro Reverter. Minister for tho Colonies Don Thomas Gastellano. United State Minister Woodford, the Duke of Tetuau and the president of tho senate, the Marquis Paso de la Merrsed, held a conference today and General Woodford presented to General Azcar raga the members of the United States legation. Owing to the cabinet crisis the Cuban pour parlenrs have been postponed. It is said that Senor Sagasta is in favor of superceding Captain General Weyler and of granting autonomy- to Cuba immediately. Senor Gamazo will probably be min ister of foreign affairs iu the new cabi net. NO WARWITH SPAIN. State Department Ofliciuls Tak Optimis tic View of the Situation. Washington, Sept. 2S. The possi bility of a rupture between the United States and Spain, growing out of tho representations recently made to the Madrid authorities by Minister Wood ford, is regarded as very remote by state department officials. At the time Mr. Woodford's instructions were written it was the opinion of the administra tion that a tender of the good offices of the United States would be rejected by Spain. Their views have changed on this point. It is said that the authori ties are now confidently expecting that Spain will accept the offer of mediation in the same conciliatory spirit in which it was made, and express a willingness to consider any suggestion which this government may choose to make in the direction of a restoration of peace in the island. It is a very easy matter to tender good offices and a. comparatively easy one to get them accepted, but, as it is argued in some quarters, with the Cu bans declaring they will not accept any thing short of complete independence, and Spain firmly adhering to its reiter ated declaration that it will not with draw its flag from the island, tho ad ministration will find it as difficult to end the war peacefully as Spain has in its efforts to close it by force of arms. Should the Spanish government re ject the offer of 'the good offices of the United States, tendered by Mr. Wood ford, it will then be necessary for Presi dent McKiuley to consider what shall be the further course of the govern ment. A member of the cabinet said that the president would not act hastily in any event. The president will com municate full information to congress at the beginning of the session in De cember and be guided by the action of that body. FEAR A BIG UPHEAVAL. Central American Kepuhlies on the Eve of a Crisis. Washington', Sept. 2S. The Central American republics, according to pau american diplomats in Washington, are undoubtedly on the eve of a general po litical upheaval. The success of the revolutionists in Guatemala, entailing the downfall of Dictator Barrios and the elevation of Prospero Morales to the presidency, is believed to be inevitable and. is likely to, of itself, bring about a revolution in several of the sister repub lics. The imprisonment of the Costa Rican consul general, Don Eduardo Boche, by the Nicaragnan authorities, is regarded as a serious breach of inter national "courtesy that can hardly pre vent a rupture. The seeds of sedition are easily sown in Honduras, and the uneasiness in that country seems likely to develop into open revolt against President Bouilla as au indirect result of the success of the revolution in Guatemala . Berius: Sea Conference, Washington, Sept. 26. As an answer I to Great Britain, who, after seeming to agree to a conference between Canada and the United States to discuss certain phases of tho Bering sea question, has declined to be a party to the conference if Japan and Russia are participants, it is not unlikely that the delegations of the United States, Russia and Japan will proceed with the consideration of the questions at issue without regard to whether or not Lord Salisbury changes his mind, This may, however, cause eoine delay in the meeting of the con ference. T'lijjlnml and Kfcypt. Paris, Sept. 2fl. The Politique Colo- jnaje .publishes a dispatch from St. Petersburg today saying that as a result of an exchange qf views between the chancellors of St. Petersburg, Paris, Berlin, Vienna. Rome and Constantino ple, tho sultan of Turkey will address thc)owers shortly on the subject of Great Britain's evacuation of Egypt, and Russia, supporting the sultan, will invite a conference at Constantinople or St. Petersburg, with the object of set tling the question on tho basis of tho autonomy of Egvpt under the suzerainty .4 A 1 . 11 oi me smtau.

Omaha, Sept. 25, There is. every prospect that the South Omaha Live Stock exchange may. be abandoned by its members. Those who know predict that it will collapse soon. Inspired by the -victory in tho United States court in Kansas over a live stock exchange there, suit has just beeu brought by the United States against tho South. Ornahn Live Stock exchange- and all of its members. It membership amounts to a few over 200. The suit is authorized by Attornoy General McKenna of the United States The papers in the- suit were filed with him some time ago by Attorney John T. Cathers of this city. They were re turned yesterday with, the statement that tho attorney general had-approved or the suit. Summons are now being prepared by the clerk of the circuit court of tho United States and will be served by the marshal in Sonth Omaha today. The effect of the suit, if decided as that at Topeka was, will be to perpetually re strain the South Omaha Live Stock ex change from carrying on its business. It is alleged that last September tho Omaha Live Stock Commission com pany was organized, but its members had charges preferred against them by the South Omaha Live Stock exchange. In January membership in the exchange was made harder by an increase in the membership fee from 100-to $1,000. It is alleged m the petition that tho exchange is a trust and that as such it operates in violation of the laws of tho United States. GEN. TRACY THEIR CHOICE. lovr's 'ame Ik Iteceived With Jeers nnd If isries by the Delegates and Spectators, New York, Sept. 29. General Ben jamin P. Tracy, former secretary of the navy, was last night nominated by the convention of the regular Republican organization for mayor of Greater New York. Seth Low, the nominee of the Citi zens' union got less than o0 of the 348 votes cast. His name was received "by the delegates and spectators with jeers and hisses :uid Jacob Worth, the leader of the opposition to Senator Piatt, was cried down when ho essayed to present- Low's name. One of the Low men ex pressed an intention to bolt the regular ticket. The Citizen.s union, several days ago announced that the with drawal of Low was out of the question and the Republican committee at the same time presented an ultimatum to the effect that Low was not acceptable to the Republican organizations. Ne gotiations were thon discontinued and were not resumed again, although the Citizens union and the Brooklyn Dem ocracy both supported Low and made m appeal in favor of Low. A union of the anti-Tammany forces seems likely. Select Canal Route' to .Seaboard. Albany, Sept. 23. The deep water ways commission, appointed by resi dent McKiuley to report on a canal route connecting the upper lakes with the seaboard, have practically selected a route, according to a statement -made by Chief Engineer Harrison of the com mission, starting from North Tonawan- da and extending to Lake Ontario, the outlet to be near Wilson, beirinuins: again at Oswego, thence to Lake Oneida, and from there to Mohawk river, wiiicn is a mrect connection via the Hudson. To a certain extent the pro posed waterway follows the lines sug gested by tho Hon. Elanthan Sweet. The cost of construct ion will be, accord ing to estimates, SS2,093,G01. The Suez canal cost $1 00,000,000. Keil Dmv's Condition. Portland, Me., Sept. 80. General Neil Dow passed a more comfortable night than he did on Monday.

WATERTHEIE theme SIXTH ANNUALIRRIGATION CONGRESS CONVENES IN LINCOLN. Sessions Marked With Increased Attend ance An Interesting Dissertation or Itainmakinsr Address by W. J. Bryan. Ulrs. Uootli-Tticker Spoke. Lixcolx, Sept. 30. Beginning t 9 o'clock yesterday morning with a short recess at noon and continuing until late last night the delegates to the Natioua' Irrigation congress were surfeited with papers on irrigation subjects and discus sions which followed their presentation. The state irrigation convention pre ceded regular meeting of the national irrigation congress, which convened in tne state university chapel. The at tendance at the main congress was fair. The commit tee on credentials made a report, after which the following officers were elected by acclamation: President, Joseph M. Carey, Cheyr enne; first vice HON. 3L CAREY. roifloYir S A SA. VUiUVMl J - Cochran. South Dakota: second vice president, L. W. Shuertliff, Ogtleu, Utah ; third vice president, S. M. Knox, Princeton, His. ; secretary, T. E. Frost, Minneapolis ; reading clerk, Colonel H. D. Maxon, Reno, Xev. ; file clerk, P. E. Hickson, Nebraska ; press reporter, R. J. Colver, Los Angeles. The congress took action looking to its indefinite continuance and providing for the incorporation of the national as sociation and adoption of 51 constitution and bylaws, which was broached at the meeting at Phoenix, Ari., a year ago and has been delayed through a failuro heretofore to recognize the congress as a continuous body or to keep intact for mer proceedings. Ex-Senator Carey of Wyoming, who was honored by a unanimous election to the presidency. emphasized the necessity of making the association a distinct and permanent or ganization. Interest in the subject, he said, was growing each year and the enterprise itself was broadening and so developing as to compel recognition .of the whole nation. The sessions were marked with an increased attendance and papers as a rule were pointed and interesting. An extremely interesting dissertation on rainniaking by a local theorist had the effect of crowding out of the program a number of papers. Brigham Young: sent the following : "Public business prevents my presence at Lincoln. Success attend your labors in the present congress. I congratulate you on your just enorts and lieartily hope that the people of the nation may realize the importance of your mission and how closelv it is allied with their futaire prosperity. May the day be hastened, may the labors of men and women who have so uuselfishly devoted their time and means to develop the national interests of the great west as you are doing be fully appreciated by the whole people of our great conutry."
