The Lllllo murder case nt David City Is nftnin brought into prominence by arguments for n now trlnl being pro * touted by the attorneys for Mrs. Lllllo. It will not bo u long and tiresome wait for Arbor tiny , which comes on the sand. In the inonntiiuo people can loonto the plnocs where they wnut trees nnd dig the holes. About the time wo have succeeded in donning the mud from our shoos wo nro compelled to tnko the whisk broom and Realtor the dust from our dorbioa. It is ono of the pOBfiibillttcB of Nebraska climate. The Burdlok murder must over re main n mystery , but through the invest igations arriving ut this opinion those vrho delight in scnndnl hnvo boon fur nished facts tbnt were very nocoptnblo to them. _ It in difficult for Bomo of the pnrtlsnus to nttnch n political significance to Pres ident Roosevelt's western trip , but others mnnngo to nocompllHh it without blinking nn eye or disarranging n train of thought. , With hnrmony banquets in the cast ivloug the old-tlmo democratic lines and harmony banquets in the west under the supervision of the now democracy , it is rather strange that the elusive dove of peaoo does not alight. With election over and the legislative Bosfllon ending the men can now turn their attention to providing ways and moans for paying for their wives' Easter "bonnets. They have a few days loft in which to do some figuring on that proposition. The west docs not propose that any -harm shall come to President Roosevelt during his trip through the section if it is possible to prevent and they have taken to jailing these that hnvo so inuch ns intimated that they would wish hlui harm. The bill prohibiting the shooting of Jive pigeons from a trap in the belief that it is "sport , " bus mot with favor at the hands of the Nebraska legislature juid it may bo bollevod that it will soon fco unlawful to practice this form of amusement in the state. * Canton , 8. D. , is sending advertise ments to eastern papers that reoito its disirnbillty ns a place for the scouring of divorced and the people of that town arc expecting n rush of business from thoeo of the coat who nro not enjoying a high grade of marital felicity. Arbor day is but two weeks distant "but if people nro unable to curb .their ambition to plant n tree they might do it now.nnd then plnnt some later. It is none too early to begin nnd the planting of trees is ouo of the good things thn it is impossible to overdo in Nebraska A Grand Island woman played an April fool joke on her husband by bnk ing a pancake with n piece of paper sandwiched in. The mnu of the house ate the cake nnd failed to notice the difference. The first of next April she should try broiling apiece of solo loathe for beef steak and see if his taste could distinguish the joko. Shamrock III is said to have shown nn uuusutil speed in her trial trip , bu the same reports were circulated re gardiug her predecessors and yet th American defenders kept the onp on this side of the water , so that the peopl will not be ready to give the trophy up as lost until it is actually won by Lip ton's now craft. Das Moiues proposes to Hue up some of the largest families obtainable in the Btate on the day President Roosevelt visits there to prove that Iowa Is exempt from the charge of a tendency toward race suicide. The west can furnish Bouio pretty respectable sized families to prove tint the fear of the president does not hold good iu this region. That was n very funny joke played by a workman In the gypsum mines at Batavia , N. Y. , on the eve of April Fool's day. The blowing up of a 20- pound keg of powder and the mangling of the bodied of four fellow-workmen vttu so excruciatingly humorous the practical joker should be compelled to laugh the balance of his life time without Leing permitted to stop for breath. The great west welcomes the president with open arms aud hopes that his visit will be one of unlimited delights. We know that this great section of country cannot astonish him with its vast resources and unlimited posslbil- tie * . Ho Is probably the bent informed iroRldent along that line that the ountry hint over had , but even ho may llncovcrnow features in hospitality. The York youth who throw a pitch * ork at IIH ( mother because she under ook to Instruct him in the matter of linking garden IB n fiunplo of the sort lutt tjould ho dnalt with to good effect vlth liberal donos of strnp oil , energetic- lly nnd thoroughly administered.

It is qulto evident that the admlulH- ration Is not In favor of the tariff re arms that have boon advocated by the omoorntH nnd some members of the re- mblluan party. Quito recently a num- mr of high officials hnvo taken n firm tand in favor of the good old ropubll- an policy of n high protective tar III , uid it is safe to believe that the party will bo found sustaining them when the proper time arrives. Land for farming nud gardening In fobrnfikn is not in such demand that n ow acres cannot bo devoted with irollt to the growing of groves nnd imbor. Such use of n few acres will noronRo the productive capacity of other acres nnd add to the value of the arm. If your farm is not already defined with a grove or orchard this spring would bo the earliest oppor- unity to supply the deficiency. The fact that the ioo orcnm season IB soon to opou may hnvo inspired a company of young men to induce her to lo it , or she may bo ono of that rare species of womankind who dislike ice cream , but a female medical student ms announced that she found 30,000- X)0 ) bacteria , known as storptocoous ctrngpiiuft * latUR , mlcrocoous tetragonus anrous in a dish of Ice cream. If she md counted twice ns many of the animals the young man might still find a girl who would not refuse to oat ice cream with him. A Hastings judge has fined a mer chant of that city for gambling. The merchant wag conducting a ruffle for a shot gnu , in which ho got the interest of a number of boys , ono of whom broke into n till in a bntchor nhop to secure money to buy tickets on the gun.

If George Wash- lugton'conld witness this possibility of modern inventions it would bo safe to believe that ho would bo considerably astonished to learn that the president was directing the government from the white house though ho was in the center of the Yellowstone National park. Dr. Robert Sangiovannl , physician to the'lnte General Garobnldi , has emhpa- sized the not entirely now theory that the liberal eating of beef is a means for combatting consumption , nnd also insists that the corset is one of the greatest dangers to women liable to the attack of tuberculosis bacilli. He says : "Tho impoverishment of the blood is the only favorable menus to the life nnd multiplication of the bncilli of tubercu losis and in order to avoid consumption It is necessary to use albuminous foods in sufficient quantity dally. The prin cipal staple of albumen is ox moat. It is the restricted nso of beef that is re sponsible in a large degree for anaemia and eventually for consumption. " The doctor's endorsement may mean the in creased eating of beef and thereby aid these who raise cattle , but on the other hand his euro is very agreeable nud most people can afford to heed his advice in the interest of health and happiness. The legislators are being criticised by some who hope for a campaign Issue that will stick , because of the largo amount of money appropriated by the session just closing. As is customary with such critics they fnil to specify wherein the appropriations nro exces sive. Before joining with these critics the people should for themselves ex amine the record and ascertain wherein the legislature has been extravagant with the public money. A review of the appropriations will disclose the fact that a large amount of the money has been devoted to paying that for which other legislatures should have provided and a nether large amount has been set aside for making repairs and improvements to state In stitutions that nro nbflolntolr nrcexsnry. Others nro for progrmslvo movements that no ono desiring the growth and ad vancement of the stittu would desire to have eliminated. Outside of thcso the appropriations nro no larger thnn these made by proceeding Icgislnturca , Thn Htnto pcnato has decided that capital punlflhinent , an conducted in No- bniBkal not suoh n horrible crlino after all , nnd him voted to permit the present law to stand , by a decided ma jority. In considering the question it wnn determined that tlioro nro crimes of suoh n revolting nnture that nothing short of death to the murderer would Hcem to answer an pnnisnmout. This may not be pleasing to sontimont.illBtH , but to these who bollovo in prompt nnd vigorous justice where the crlino nnd criminal have no HOinblanco of n de fense It will continue to bo Hntlsfaotory. As it is the law makes enough mistakes in favor of sentiment and becomes too lenient. There have been several cases in this section to the point. In ono n man brutally murdered his wife nnd children , using n foot wnrming stone to accomplish his horrible crime. Ho wns adjudged insane , confined in an iusauo asylum for n few mouths , nnd is now nt liberty to commit other crimes. The crlino of Gottlieb Niugonflnd , almost ns revolting , wns punished effectively nud for nil timo. Between the two the people ple nro Inclined to bollovo that justice wns uioro nearly approached in the Nicgonflnd case tlmu In that of the ( other man. I'uro The Lincoln News of last Saturday showH n unrrow , selfish Inconsistency that is simply astonishing in n paper claiming to represent any portion of the people nnd its arguments nro BO ridicu lous ns to make Ic appear that an incom petent numbskull in directing its course in n vain attempt to influence leg islation. A goodly portion of the News' editorial columns is devoted to argumonta urging the necessity of an increased tax in support of the state uni versity , which is asserted to bo a matter of stnto pride. The editor pnts the leg islators on the back nud calls them good nnd wise and honest nud discreet for what they have done for Lincoln with its state cnpitol , university , poulten- tinry , insane asylum , stnto fairgrounds , experiment station , its printing plants , business nouses , etc. , oto. , but the mo ment the legislature attempts something for another part of the state , especially that portion lying north of the Platte river , there is a loud and long protest. The legislators ccaso to bo statesmen in his estimation nud become n gnng of looters , bent on robbing the tax payers of the state and imposing on them un just burdens. In the opinion of the News the appropriation for the rehabili tation of the Norfolk hospital for the insane , the only npproprintlon of any .moment coming to the north Platte country , wns entirely inexcusable aud will prove a heavy burden on the tax payers of the state. The News of the 28th says : The house this morning started an other lead into the vaults of the state tsoasury which will impose heavy burdens on the tax payers. This was the passage of a bill appropriating § 100- 000 for the reconstruction , of the Nor folk asylum. This represents simply the money that will go into the recon struction of the buildings , and makes no account of the largo sums which have been tacked onto the salary bills for the payment of the salaries of the employes and officials of that institution when it is rehabilitated. The stnto is caring for its insane nt the other ins i- tntlous , nud the justification for the action of the house this morning is found in the fnct that the north Platte country is supposed to have some claim on the state treasury to an equal dis tribution of the state funds. The fact that the bill passed with only eleven dissenting votes indicates to what ex tent the members arc blinded by the fact that the Platte river is n sluice way Into the state treasury. Many mem bers who hnvo boon in favor of eronotny voted for the measure because they nr- euod that the state's cash ought to be distributed equitably through all sec tions. The News should be entitled to an other spasm because the senate agreed with the house that Lincoln Is not the state In Its ontlretv and spoke emphat ically for rebuilding the hospital that through a flro nnd Governor Savage north Nebraska and Norfolk were unfor tunate enough to lose. The News has the gigantic task on hand of making the governor , the house and the senate appear ridiculous because they wont BO far as to make an appropriation of $100- 000 that didn't go to Lincoln. It is to bo hoped that the News does not rep resent the sentiment of the people of Lincoln in its astonishing display o selfishness , if it does the people of the state should send a legislature the nex time that will tench the capital city a valuable lesson. It is clear that the legislature is not under the whip hand of the News , else other sections of the state might go begging for nppropria tlous aud bo turned down. It would be a wise thing for the people of the cap Hal city to insist that the News mm take n trip over the state and becam impressed with the fact that there i some considerable portion of It ontsid of Lancaster county/ It was not unfair that north Nebraska should ask to be permitted to care fo its unfortunate insane and it was no unfair for the legislature to comply , th Lincoln News to the contrary nothwith standing. The county assessor IB n now office to nvito the attention of politicians hav- ng that appetite for office , The Beatrice Sun claims there is lees runkennoBS in that city than in any own in Knuna * , nud Uuatiico is so dona o the line that the editor should know vhat conditions exist in the prohibition tate and the homo of Oarrle Nation. Ex-Congressman Mercer proposes to mild n magnificent residence In Omaha ml open n law ofllco , which may be akon to mean that the fight between 1m nud Editor Rosowntor is not yet n losod incident. At least Mr. Mercer mends that it may no longer bo said lint ho has no homo in Omaha. These papers that are running dvanco stuff relative to President loosovoH's proposed hunt on his trip vest might butter call the articles down u view of the fact that the president ms given it out that ho will not hunt lo docs not take to the sport nsup to its idenl with n gang of photographers , pportor , couriers , etc. , dogging this locls during the outing , aud would nnoh prefer to go it nlono ns ho did ) oforo ho attained to the prominence lint made these attendants n nccesfmrv part of his party. The newspaper boys of north No- jraska very generally rejoice with Nor- oik over the fact that money has been appropriated to rebuild the hospital for .ho . Insane nt this plnco. They recog nize that it wns just nnd right that there hould bo n hospital in this part of the tnto to care for the unfortunates of the eotion nud hnvo snbordiuntod nuy jeal ousies that may hnvo existed between ; heir towns nud Norfolk. The people of Norfolk appreciated the manner in which they seconded the movement nud it will linger long in their memory. The agricultural experiment station it Lincoln has Issued n very senbonnblo looumeut , just preceding Arbor day , hat should bo in the possession of every farmer and orchardist , nnd can bo obtained by merely addressing the tation. It is bulletin No. 79 , and do- ails the experiments conducted at the tate fnrm in orchard culture. It argely dealp with the preparation and reatmcut of the soil for orchards. It a an old-fashioned belief that in orchards , especially young orchards , hero should be n crop of oats or millet planted with the trees. This is proven orronous by the experiments at ho station , whore it was found that clean and thorough cultivation gave ho best results during the summer , aud the using of the ground for the crowing of vegetables gave the next best results. It was likewise ascer- alued that trees could be ripened to withstand the rigors of the winter to he best advantage with a late cover crop of millet. The orchard was planted in 1001. That was an unus ually dry year nud it was found that while but two trees had died In the clean cultivated plot , thirty-nine had died in that portion planted to oats. Another plot was planted to vegetables , ouo to corn , ono to millet and in another the weeds wore permitted to grow , but the clean cultivation gave the best results. During the summer the plot that was clean cultivated and the one devoted to vegetables showed the best results in development of the trees. The diameter of trunks was 19.4. Height in clean cultivated 5.9 nnd of those whore vegetables were raised six feet ; breadth of top in clean cultivated 2.9 , aud of vegetable plot 3.3. In the plot devoted to oats the result was as Follows : diameter of trunks 15.2. , height of trees 4.0 , breath of tops two feet. It is also shown that the orchard- : st must know when to quit cultivation. Cn the late cultivated crop five trees were killed three were badly injured and none were unhurt by the winter , while with millet used as a cover crop , three trees were badly injured and five were unhurt , showing a decided advan tage for the late cover crop for winter proteotion and in ripening the wood of the trees. Those experiments are ol great importance to those planning to grow an orchard. The bulletin consists of some thirty pages and is free for the asking. TRADES UNIONS TO UNITE. Defensive Alliance of Labor Organlza. tlons Forming. Pittsburg , April 7. A defensive alli ance of most of the trades unions of the country Is a possibility of the near tut- uro , nnd the heads of various labor organizations , led by President T. J. Shaffer of the Amalgamated Associa tion of Iron , Steel and Tin Workers , are forming plans with that object In view. If formed this amalgamation of working men will bo the largest over In existence and will have a member ship up In the millions.

" t Mr. Shaffer intimated that after the Amalgamated convention at Columbus Is over , stops will be taken to get the heads of the labor organizations of the country to consider the plan sys tematlcally. He stated that this de fensive alliance Is coming and that Us organization Is only a question 01 time. Sultan Accused of Goading Albania to Revolt. AU&TRIA MOBILIZES TROOPS. \ Turk Promises Ambacccdors to Send Soldiers Into Disturbed Districts If Trouble Deco Not Soon Subside. Russian Consul at Death's Door. London , April C. There Is little fur- her development In the Balkan crisis elnco Saturday. The rumor of the death of M. St. Chcrblna , the Russian consul at Mltrovltzn , who was shot by nn Albanian sentry , proves to have jecn premature , but the consul's con- lltlon Is serious nnd symptoms of por- tonltls have appeared.

The sul tan Informed them that In the event of the failure of the mission that he dispatched to Albania , ho would take measures for the military occupation of the disturbed region. The Dally Mall's correspondent at Vienna asserts that Austria has mobll- zed her Agrnm , Sarajevo and Tomes- var army corps In readiness to occupy Mltrovitza should such a measure become - come necessary. The correspondent further affirms that a dangerous agita tion exists among the Mohammedan population of Bosnia and Herzegova- nla , which Is secretly arming itself In spite of all official precautions with the Intention , It Is feared , of emigrat ing Into old Sorvla to swell the ranks of the Insurgent Albanians.
