"Ainon"; the visitorsat the White I lous"
today was C. K. C'orsaut. a merchant of
Puerto Kico. To the President Mr. Cor-.-ant
talked at some length. He described
conditions on the island. The most im
jiortant thing that he ssiid was, that th-
business men of Puerto Rico would have
no objection to the proposed tariff of 1"
per cent of the Dingley rates. Ho saiti
also that, aside from an element which
always antagonizes, there was little com
plaint on thepartof tho people generally
against the legislation. From the White

to tell the Senators what he had said to
the President about the tariff bill."
Some Financial Oddities.
Some twenty odd years ago Montgom
ery & Itoecker at Oregon and Frazer V
McDonald at Forest City transacted all
the banking business done in Holt conn
ty. The railroads were built and a great
change was wrought. At present ne
have eleven banking institutions I5y
compairing the statements of the differ
ent banks we fiud that the dejiosits in
tho northern half of the county ?ii".0tJ)
exceed the deposits of the south half of
the county (Clu.boti) over two to one
Mound City, Craig. Maitland and Corn
ing all have banks, and in giving these
Hgure3 thev are all counted as being in
the northern half as against ( )regon and
Forest Citv in tho south half. Holt
county has 130,000 inhabitants and tak
ing the deposits above, this gives 00
to every man, woman and child in the
county. Hard times: Well, we guess
not! Forest City Journal.
The heaviest deposits as stated above
are in the northern portion of our roun
ty, while the inonevs. notes, etc., held in
Oregon, alone are larger by S10.00J than
the amount assessed to the credit of
Mound City, Maitland ami Craig. The
real estate values of Mound City are
larger than Oregon and Forest City by
S20.000. A tyjiographical error in the
above make Holt county's population
1SO,000, when it should have read SIS.0U0
and the per capita deposits about S.'hD.OO
instead of .OO. The average uejiosils
in the eight banks in the north part of
the county is 670,IJ"J and that of the
three banks in the south part is S'.'O.OOO.
Ex-Representative Springer tells a cur
ious story that is worthy of investiga
tion bv the bureau of ethnology. Hesays
that a Creek Indian from the Indian
territory, who was a member of the rough
riders, re-inlisted in tho regular army at
the close of the Spanish war and was
sent to the Philippine islands. inie
campaigning with his regiment in the
southern part of the archipelago he
found a tribe of Malays whose, dialect
was almost the same as the aboriginal
language of the Creek nation. He could
understand them and thev could under
stand him without ilifliculty, and he was
able to act as interpreter for his officers
with a tribe he had never heard of 1"
fore. Chicago Herald.
There is a Siamese boy stav ing with
Mrs. Knowles of our city studying the
English language. Mr. Frank Uennetr,
brother of Mrs. Knowles, spent several
years in the United States army, and be
came familiar with several Indian dia
lects. When he heard the young Siamese
boy speaking his native tongue, he was
astonished to tind that the language
was so similar to the Indian languages
he had learned, that he could under
stand much of the lioy's conversation.
This similarity between the American
Indian dialects and the languages of the
far east furnishes an interesting study
for the ethnologist.
Someone recently attempted to prove
that the Garden of Eden was located in
Colorado, and that America was the
birth place of the human jaw. Maybe
this is true. Who knows?
Our City Affairs.
The election in our city Tuesday was
as ouiet as a village funeral. Mr. Arthur
Petree was electiii Major, Clarence O.
Moller city marshal and Lin. Carro'l.
city collector. Saimi! Schulto was
chosen alderman from tho west ward
and Messrs. Frank Kreek and John
Philbrick from the east ward.
Mayor Alkire will retire, hu having re
fussd to be a candidate again, having
served four years. During his adminis
tration our city has made some long
strides in the way of improvement, and
our city has been placed along side with
the more progressive fourth clans cities
of our stale. While Mayor we have put
in an electric light system and a water
works plant, that are second to none
usually put in similar cities. The city
owns these plants, and is a practical
demonstration that municipal ownship
of such plants is the proper solution of
such problems. While it is to lie ex
pected that such enterprises will be of
some expense to the city, yet when the j
great nenetit is considered, the expense
becomes insignificant. These improve
ments have necesitatetlniuch labor, care
and thought, and the exjienditure of
many thousands of dollars. As our chleT
executive Mr. Alkire ha given his very
best efforts in behalf of our citizens,
watching their every interest with a
jsalous care, and during his entire term
we have never heard a criticism offered
by any of our representative citieus or

c Spauit.li governor refused to delive
out certain papers and Jacksou prompt

I-romeiitin for a writ of habeas corpus
and t!i judge dismissed him from cus
tody. At once Jackson cited the judg
before him fercontempt and in due time
the issue between them reached Prcsi
dent Monroe in Washington. The judge
set up that Florida was part of tho
United States and that all constitution
al rights, including habeas corpus, ap
plied to it. Jack-on set up that the
constitution had no force or effect what
ever in a territory, and that the judge
had no jurisdiction except to enforce tht
two laws that congress had extended
over it. He uWd ttiat until congress
provided laws, he, the governor, was
IMsnessed i " the supreme legislative
judicial and executive authority, and
that he was limited in no maninr by the
constitution President Monroe and the
department of justict upheld Jackson's
view of the case, and he continued to
rule as an absolute despot outside of the
constitution until congress provided laws
for Florida's government.
The arguments in congress uihiii the

The Hon. John S. Little of Arkansas
is a Democrat probably iu line with his
party on the great question of constitu
tional aelf-extfiision to the territories,
and is evidently in harmonv with the
view of the Tribune.
On Monday of last week. Mr Little

male persons over twenty one years of

tribe, residing in the Indian territory;

We '.er agreeably eurpn-ed u short
time ago. to learn that our school board
had added vo.-ai music to the cirnculum
of school work, aud recommended that
all ttie teacher give instruction in this
branch in i.ur public schools. A little
singing we .ne tol.f lias been practiced
oyer there all along, but the riidments
f music h:ne neier, as we understand
it, been taught until now. Miss Delia
Kuukel offered a fe.v whis ago to take
up music in tne school, and give nil the
pupils from the highest to the lowest
grades a th trough drill in Hie subject.
The b ar.l at that time hoivever.d'd not
feel able financially to authorize the
work t' be dune, but now since it is
made a part of each te.iclter's duties,
that subject can be carried right along
with all the others and without hiring
an addito ml teacher. There is no
doubt of the good that comes from in--truction
in music. Children leurn to
read the notes at sight io the same way
thru they learn to read print, and having
learned this 6u young it beconiei almost
ii p-irt of their Datures and i never for
gotten in all their after life. Besides
the practice of singing is a most salutary
exercise for all young people io both its
! influence upon the emotions, and in its
I j development of the respiratory organs,
, 1 here is no doubt that for defective
chest development and chronic heart
trouble, biuging ib an unequalled exer

I no constriction of the neck or waiet

eume music teachers make is that of
having their pupils practice too much;
that forty minutes practice every day
iu fingiug is belter than four hours a
duy would b at the same exercise and
that if the forty minuteB were divided
up into periods rf ten or twelve minutes
each this would be better still. Ilegu
litrily and mil loog practice hours,
(w Inch only fatigue the voice and wear
it ouli is paid to be the greatest aid to
advancement. The voice of a young
person must necessarily develop very
gradually, and no doubt any attemp to
force itsgroth would be a fatal mistake.
Music is very like penmanship (in one
rcspect.j An ounce of theory and
pound of practice mukeu a very good
combination of ingredients for each of
them. We hope that their experiment
of introducing music into our cchool
may prove highly successful.
We see by the cession acts of the last
General assembly that seven different
amendments to the constitution of the

that some of thetu ought to be adopled,
The tirst amendment permits county
courts to levy a special lux of nu. to
exceed 15 cents on the S100 valuation

larger fund for road improvement. The
levy of the tax is discretionary with the
Under the second amendment three
fourths of the jurors, in civil cases, in By

in courts not of record, in both civil and
criminal cases, two-thirds of the jury
which need n-Jl consist of twelve men
may render n veidict. Under the present
law a jury'e verdict must nlways he un
animous. The amendment does away
with the "hanging" of the jury by the
disagreement of one or two men.
The third amendment permits the
prosecution of persons criminally for
felony or misdemeanor by either inilict
ment or information.
The fourth amendment provides that
juries in courts of recoids may consist
of less than twelve men. It also pro
vides that grand juries shall not be con
vened e.cepton order of the judge of a
court having the power to try felony
cases. These amendments, if carried,
are expected to reduce materially the
criminal costs particularly in grand jury
The fifth amendment deals with the
subject of taxation. It provides t'aat a
mortgage or other obligation by which
a debt is secured, shall be treated as an
interest in the nropeitj. Io cbscs of
debts so secured, the value of the pro
nertr. Ies the mortgage, shall be as
sessed to the owner of the property. If
the owner of the securities shall pay the
tax on the properly it shall operate as
a corresponding additiou to the debt. It
the owner of the property shall pay the
tax on the security it shall diminish the
indebtedness or mortagage to that ex
tent. The amendment seeks to relieve
"double assessments" Bnd to distribute
the burden of taxation equitably be
tween the givers aud holders of nior
tages. The sixth (tad t-eventli amendments
deal with the St. Louis World's Fair.

Worth Talking About.
Thejjiovements in real estate in Holt
county for the last three mouths have
been usually large both in numbers as
well as in amount involved in the tran
saction. Recorder of deeds Heller with
his deputy, have had all the business
they could conveniently attend to. They
make a neat set of records, and take
great pains in having their work done
right and promptly. There were 228
warranty and quit claim Deeds tiled dur
ing the three months ending March 31,
1900, the considerations in these transac
tions amounted to 131,485, as against
tl04,571 for the entire year of 189G.
There were 187 trust deeds filed Talued
at $253,000. There were 177 releases
made involving $180,010. this is within
f 20,000 of the total value of releases filed
during the entire year of 1890. When
these transactions are taken in connec
tion with the?829,000 on deposit in the
various banks of our county, surely there
