* t governor Adam , of Colorado , Bays Ho Cannot Believe Nebraska Farmers , 6UT THE STATE ASSEMBLY MAY. f crhaps CongrcHB Will no Appealed fa Mr. Pnpploton'a Answer to Complaints of Lincoln Mer chants Capital City News. [ FHOM THE DEE'S UKCOLX The question ot the use of water for Irrigation from the South Platte river in Colorado , by moans of which Nebraska eettlera in the western part of the state on that river are robDcd entirely of water and the stream remains dry for weeks at n time , is exciting more than passing in- toros t in both Colorado and Nebraska , The letter of Governor Thaycr to Gov ernor Ailams forwarding in detail the complaints of settlers on the bordorjwas Widely commented upon in both states Bnd the Kuriotis nature of the dry In K of the South J'latto for the lirst time Gained enura ! public notice. Governor Th uycr as pincu writing the letter been giving the ( lillicnliy n good deal of thought , and \vliilu no relief is discovered , the gov ernor is of the opinion that settlement will have to be made through congress , nnil he will probably work to that end. The reply of Governor Adams , of Col orndo. to Governor Thaycr is made by the attorney general of that state , Mr. Jvlursh , and Is as follows ; DKNVKH , Col. , July 27. Hon. John M. Thayer , Governor of Nebraska. Dear Sir : Governor Adams tins just handed mo your communication to him of tlie S3d Instant , for reply. lie dtslrcs me to state tliat ho has given the Hiibjcct to which you nlliulo tlio thouKht- lul consideration which it deserves , nnd that while he regrets the hardship Imposed through the agencies you miggest upon the farmers In the western' border of your utato living along the line of the South Plntto river , yet , as the executive of this state he Is entirely powerless to grant any measures of relief. Under the constitution and laws of this state , tbo waters of every natural stream can bo appropriated lor domestic , agricultural and manufacturing purposes , subject to preference in the order above named , nnd to priority of rights of appropriation for said several objects. A system ot Irrigating canals and ditches has sprung un under the protection of those laws. Involving large outlaj s of money by Individuals and corporations , and giving rise to many important and embarnsslng quus- tlons In their practical use and development , which have to bo determined Oy the courts. In view of these facts , Governor Adams feels that ho can do no more than to give general publicity to your communication , by causing the same to be published in our ( Rest Influential and widely circulated Journals , with a hope that at its next session our general assembly ( the only power which can give any adequate itself ) may take up and consider the question with reference nt least to the suggestion contained In the letter of your correspondent , Air. Stocking. With much respect , 1 remain , yours , etc. , AI.VIK MAUSII. MB , rOPl'LETON KEl'UKS. In the matter of the complaint of Plummur , 1'erry & Co. , of Lincoln , against the Union Pacific on California through rates , and as tiled in the oflico of the railroad commission , the Union Fuel lie has entered a general denial as follows : The 1) ) nlon Pacific denies that the rates charged from San Francisco to Omaha and from Omaha to Lincoln or either of them , are unreasonable or extortionate , but on the contrary Insists that both are reasonable and that the sum ot the two rates is much less than Uio rate from San Francisco to Lincoln ; that during the period In which the ship ment occurred , section 4 of the act to regu late commerce , was suspended by the na tional inter-state Commerce commission be tween points situated on the Missouri river and points situated on the Pacific coast on account of water and rail competition between such i'acllic coast points and points on the mam line , whereby a lower late could bo made between bald points than between either terminus and intermediate points , and that It was aolely by reason of such suspension that a rate of 75 cents could be made to Omaha on the shipment In controversy. Respondent therefore claims that said rate is not only reaouableand Just , but very low and was In the Intei ests ot complainants and in the only form possible. Respondent admits that it has not followed the practice In vogue before the passage of the act of congress entitled "An Act to Reg ulate Commerce , " which took etfect April 5 , 1887 , of giving to shippers In Lincoln a lower rate of ttoiglit than at other trade centers similarly situated , and for the reason that It Is prohibited by said act from so doing , that the former rate was a dis crimination in favor ot Lincoln that cannot now bo lawfully made. Respondent denies that the railway lines hauling the freight In controversy to aud.trom the rebilling point are parlies to an unlawful combination and discrimination against the city of Lincoln nnd the mercantile prosperity thereof , but on the contrary alleges the truth to be that eucli lines have heretofore protected the trade and business ot Lincoln , and are still doing so to the extent thai the laws will per mit. Respondent further submits that the rate of freight complained of Is entire from San 1'rmiclsco to Lincoln and is an Inter-state rate. That said freight was reshlpped ana rebllled from Omaha to Lincoln solely in the Interest and for the benefit of the complain- nuts and in order to KWe them the lowest possible rate , but that the shipment and the rate relate to and are a part of the commerce among states , and that therefore your honor able body has no jurisdiction thereof or power thereover. Respondent further denies the jurisdiction or power of this honorable board to modify , change , fix or establish a rate of freight on the shipment in controversy , or any like shipment between different states , and In nny case , or under any circumstances to con- tny. modify , fix or establish rates for freights > f Vt passengers on or over the respondent's , T Ihn Union Pacific company's lines. Mr. Ponploton therefore asks that the cane bo dismissed. CLOSE CALL FOR , LIFE. Robert U. Love , n 1) . & M. freight brakeman , had an oxpcrlcnco ycstorclaj morning ntVuverly that came vorj nearly coating him his life , llis trail left Lincoln at 3 a. in. bound for J'lutts Jnouth , upon which ho was rear brake man.

Texas Siftlngs : Jimpson Is n farmer from up in Tioga county. He came to Now York the other day ti got nway from the heat nnd took a trip to Long Urnnch on nn iron steamer. Ho was just dying to talk to some one , being nil alone and Uncling n plain-look ing man with white hair sitting along side of him on the forward deck ho thought ho would open conversation. Ho hemmed n few times to attract the plain man's attention , and then he said : "Cleveland made a great mistake about them flaps , don't you think so ? " "About what flags ? " "Why , the confederate flags. Ho was in favor of Bending them back to the south , you know. " "Why didn't ho do it ? " "itccauso the north raised such a blessed row about It , that's why. " "Did they belong to the north ? " "Course they did. The north took em. " "Where did the north take 'cm to ? " "Took 'em to Washington. And now Cleveland wants to send 'cm back. " "Had ho borrowed 'em ? " "Harrowed'emI no. " "Perhaps he'd bought 'em nnd they didn't just suit. In that case he might exchange 'em or take it out in suthln else. " Jimpson looked at the white-haired man with profound astonishment for a moment , and then lie asked : "Where were you raised , neighbor ? " "Right over there , " ho replied , waving his hand toward the New Jersey coast , .which lay ntretched out like an ocean-re sort sea-serpent in the distance. "I thought so , " said the Tioga man to himself ; "none of them Jersey fullers are very bright. " Then ho began anew : "Them ( lags had been captured in the war. " "VVhatwar ? " "Tho war of the rebellion. " "You don't mean to tell me there has been a rebellion ? " said the New Jersey man , with some little show of Interest. "Is it over ? " "Well , not in New Jersey,1'exclaimed Tioga , growing red in the face. "It takes live men to get up a rebellion and if you are a specimen of the people of your state there is no danger of a rebellion thero. " And Jimpson of Tioga jumped up in ill-suppressed anger and went to another part of the boat muttering that he never met such a darn fool in his life as that Jcrsoymiin. "Hello , McVicker , going to Long Branch ? " was the way the supposed Jor- soyinnn was saluted a moment after by a well known star actor , who was imme diately regaled with a relation of the above incident. The plain , white-haired man was Manager McVicker of McVick- er'a theatre. Chicago , who dearly loves a joko. But it wouldn't do to lot the mar from Tioga Know how ho was playoii upou. Painless Ileculatton. It is no longer a question of doubt although the contrary was once bcjicvci that medicines which produce violent effects aru unsuited to other than despcr nto emergencies. In other words , that super-potent remedies uro calculated to weaken and injure the system rather than reform its irregularities. Among medicines of a debilitating efluct nre cathartics and cholagogues which copi ously and abruptly evacuate the bowels. Because it does not do this , Hostellers Stomach Bitters are preferable to the drenching class of pcrgatives. Painless in its effects , it is sufliciently active to remedy chronic constipation. It re lieves by invigorating the intestines , and enables , not forces , them to perform the duty imposed upon them by nature. Promoting meting the secretion of bile in normal quantities by its healthfully stimulating ellect upou the liver , it is eminently con ducive to digestion , and contributes in no small degree to Keep the bowels regular. A Convict's Career. Louisville Commercial : In the south ern prison at JeHi'rsonville , Monday , Frank Gulliver , a half-breed. Miami In dian , who was serving a life sentence for the killing of two men in a barroom fight nt Richmond. Ind. . in 1807 , breathed his lost. Gulliver being half Indian and half negro , was a perfect brute in dispo sition , and greatly feared by all who know him. Ho was n butcher , nnd had the reputation of being able to disem bowel more porkers in a single day than any other man in the stnto. Gulliver has engaged in many contests of this kind , and often large sums of money wore etakcd on the result. Those who placed their money on the half-breed never lost. lie could , if it became necessary , use the sculping knife with as much skill as a fnil-Hedged Comnnche. At the time of his arrest for the killing nt Richmond the county seat of Wayne county was at Centrovillo , nnd to that place ho was hurried by the shoriil to sayo him from being lynched. It was twenty years ago , and the jail at Ccntroville was then a huge log structure , but very substantial ly built. Gulliver made several attempts to dig through the walls , but always failed. Finding that he could not gam his liberty in that manner , ho ono night sot lire to the building , nnd was in n fair way to bo cremated , when the jailor dis covered what was going on and removed the prisoners. The building though much damaged wasot totally destroyed. The old criminal was in his seventieth year , nnd had finished twenty years of servitude. Ho WHS born on the Indian reserve in Howard and Tipton counties , Indiana , nnd spent his boyhood days there with the Miami Indians. He has ono brother , n birbor , doing business in Indianapolis , and it is likely he will at tend to the disposing of the remains. Although throe score nnd ten years ol age , ho had never been ill until taken about n week ago with pneumonia. Mr. Donnls of the Benson house has loused it to nn Iowa party who takes pos > session the first of September. Mr. Uon- nia will then take charge of the Reed housu , now in course of erection on Twenty-fifth street. It will be n three story frame , 1150x41 foot , nnd will contain lifty roouia.

Some Experience in tbo Oultiration of Silk in the West and the Results. THE ART OF BUTTER MAKING The Quantity of Milk Required Uat Straw Tor 8tock--Vnrloun Mat ters of Interest for the Farmers. 811k Ilnlslnjt In the Wont. NAPRHVILI.E , 111. , Aug. 8. [ Editor of the Chicago Tribune. ] In consideration of the prevailing Interest now felt in silk raising in the west , nnd of the attention which the Tribune has been giving to the matter , 1 venture to communicate from my own personal knowledge some facts in the history ot the earliest successful efforts to rear silkworms and to manu facture silk in the west. In 1827 , my father , Daniel Roc , nt Dayton O. , procured from the patent office a few the usand silk worms' eggs for experiment. When warm weather arrived ho took the eggs from nn icu house , where they had been deposited to prevent premature hatching , placed them where they received the In direct rays ot the sun , nnd in due time was rewarded with living worms almost as numerous as the eggs ; but n few failed to hatch. They were healthy and hun gry. And how ho watched over , fed , and cared for the little follows until they hud eaten their fill of wild mulberry leaves nnd grown to lull size , and had hidden themselves away in silken co coons is a vivid memory to me still , though it happened sixty years iigo. Enthusiastic over his lirst experiment , which resulted so successfully , ho now rnado arrangements to procure for the next year through the patent ollico as before two millions of eggs. In the meantime ho studied the whole subject of silkworm rearing nnd the manufac ture of silk with untiring devotion. The literature of the subject was at that time meagre indeed ; but cyclopedias were searched , nccossablo librariesovcrhaulcd , correspondence opened with other in quirers , and much information of gen eral nature obtained , but so litllo that was specific and adapted to the local cli mate and the native foo'd for the worms that Mr. Uoo was compelled to take the chances nnd in a great degree to feel his way in the dark. In the spring of 1828 he hired an old church cdilico facing the canal basin , fitted it up with shelves nnd hurdles , and got ready for his two million of worms. They came in duo season , lived nnd throve on wild mulberry leaves , eating eighty pounds per day for the last wcek _ before beginning to spin , and went into their cocoons in good condition. The loaves on which these worms were fed were gathered in the woods in the vicin ity of Dayton nnd came from two species of native mulberry. After the worms had passed into the chrysalis state a few were allowed to pro duce moths to simply cngs tor the next year ; and the rest were "killed by baking , to preserve the silk fibre unbroken. Now came the mechanical dillicultics. Machinery was to bo invented nnd con structed to wind the silk from the co- ooons , to reel it properly onto spools for the weaver , and a loom devised and con structed upon which to do the weaving. Mr. Hoc invented all these and aided in their construction. A Frenchman familiar with the business was found who put the reeled silk into the loom and wove 200 yards of heavy silk handkerchiefs. And that was the end of my father's silk ex periments. Did ho make any money ? Not a cent. Ho did not try to make money , but to make silk , and that ho did. The handkerchiefs were disposed of to the curious nt $2 eucli. It may bo stated in conclusion that there was then no market for cocoons anywhere in the United States , which led to the making of original machinery and the manufacture of the silk bv the pro ducer. But ono thing was fully demon strated. The leaf of the native mulberry and the climate of central Uhio are well suited to the production of silk. _ E. 11. UOE. Quantify of Milk Jtoqulrecl Tor Iluttcr. Philadelphia Record. How much milk is required to make ono pound of butter depends upon so ninny circumstances as to render it impossible to estimate upon any certain quantity as the proper pro portion. No two breeds of cattle possess the same qualifications , and there is no herd of ono breed made up of oows .of like capacity for either milk or butter. Milk is a variable substance , and even when some particular cow may bo se lected for experiment in the production of milk and butter she will fail to give a uniform quantity of milk of the name quality from one day to another. The seasons influence the yield , as is shown by the trial of n cow selected for purposes of experiment. Allowing two pounds of milk to represent ono quart , the record shows that in January from 10 pounds of milk 1 pound of butter was produced , while in February 1 pound of butter was made from 14 pounds of milk. These months being winter months , when green food is usually scarce , it would naturally bo supposed that in summer the cow would give a larger quantity of butter from n given quantity of milk than she would in win ter , but her record was 31 pounds of milk to 1 pound of butter in March , 1'J pounds of milk for 1 pound ef butter in April , and 32 pounds of milk for 1 pound of butter in May. The quantity of milk re quired to produce a pound of butter dur ing the remainder ot the year was : For June.54 pounds ; July , 2'J pounds , August , 25 pounds ; September , 23 pound * ; Octo ber , 18 pounds ; November , 1C pounds ; and December , It ) pounds. It docs not imply thatdiirmg the summer season the quantity of milk yielded by the cow was less than that yielded in winter , but that it was not as rich ns cream. These changes were effected , not by the quan tity of the food but by its quality , as the cow had abundant pasturage in June , although it required fifty-four pounds of milk to produce one pound of butter dur ing that month. November to March are periods of the year when cows nro fed on concentrated food , and consequently quently they receive more attention from tbo dairyman. The yield of milk may be less , but the proportionate quantity ot butter may bo greater. The time of calv ing also affects the quality , while the severity of the cold , as well ns the shelter nnd protection given , must also bo con sidered. The experiment shows how dif ficult it is to estimate upon the butter production of a cow. The food and its quality is the most important feature of management , nnd the tests of cows for a week only may not represent the capacity for n longer time. No matter what the breed may bo , upon the management de pends the value and capacity of the animal. _ Oat Straw for Stock. In n recent report of conclusions , reached through a long series of experi ments , concerning the feeding value of oat straw , Prof. Sanborn , of Missouri , says that this straw is mainly valuable aa a lioat and fat producer. It does not pro duce much fat , because- cattle will not eat enough of it. It contains but 1.4 per cent of digestible albuminoids or flesh formers , nnd 40 per cent of digestible carbohydrates or fat formers , lleuco , to use it with advantage nnd got the full benefit of it , it must be fed with a food directly the opposite kind , such as oil meal or cottonseed meal. The professoi found that thirty-four pounds of put ; straw and six pounds of cottonseed uioul 1 gave the tame rctiilU as fifty pounds of nay , because cottonseed meal has 83.3 per cent of albuminoids and but 17.0 per cent of carbohvdrato3thu3 forming , with the straw , n well balanced ration. Uil meal contains 97.0 per cent of albumi noids and 87 per cent of carbyhydrntes , PO that n pound more of oil meal than of cottonseed meal should bo fed. The cost of this feed ns compared with hay , nt 15 a ton , or ono-qunttor of a cent per pound , is an Important question. It is said to take 85 pounds of it to make n steer gain n pound n day , or 01 cents daily to keep him in good growing condition. But if by feed ing 4 pounds of oil nieal , worth It cents per pound , the same gain uin bo made , and by feeding a proportionately less amount wo can keep up the weight , it will help out n short crop of hay. But to the farmer who has not nnd cannot got oil meal the following facts will bo of value : Clover hay contains about 0 per cent of albuminoids , timothy contains 5.8 , and oat straw 1.4 per cent ; therefore ) it will bo scon that n tone of clover liny fed with a ton of oat will bo equal in value to two tons of timothy , because clover liny contains an excess of albuminoids , and it is waste to fed it by itself , as it is wnsto to fed oat straw nlono. A steer fed on the straw long enough would starve , but when fed with clover they nro n well balanced ration , nnd make a poor luvy crop go much further , it is clearly established that the food value of oat straw can bo obtained only bn feeding with something that has un excess of al buminoids nnd a deficiency of carbohy drates. The farmer's food of this class is clover hay. ScaRonnhle Illntit nnd Use every endeavor to induce the birds to build near the house nnd barn , ns they are the best insect exterminators. Buttermilk thickened with wheat mid dlings nnd ground oats , with plenty of grass , is the best food for growing pigs. Cabbages delight in frequent cultiva tion nnd cannot be worked too often. If necessary , the hou should bo used close to the plant. The Chicago live stock show will hnvo n department for poultry , this year , nnd it is expected that over 3,000 birds will bo ou exhibition. After the rains it will require close at tention and extra work to Keep down the weeds nnd grass , ns they now have the most favorable conditions of growth. It is best not to allow n tree to so over load itself with fruit ns to compel the use of props to the limbs. The fruit should bo thinned out , leaving only the choicest. Where n young tree runs up in height with but few strong branches and u men der trunk the top should bo trimmed oil' a few inches , especially of the main shoots. Young turkeys over ton weeks old are usually past danger. They will bo tender - dor until they shall hivn the red face , but after that time they will bo hardier than chicks , Open sheds in the barnyard nro service able in providing shade in the summer , nnd in affording protection from driving storms in winter. Kvery barnyard should have an open shed , if conven ient. In turninc weeds under the work will bo thrown nway unions they bo com pletely covered , ns covering the roots only and leaving the tops out of the ground will permit them to continue growing. It costs very little to plant trees along the road , nnd when they shall reach n fair size they will add something to the vnluo of the farm. Attractiveness is often of as much value as fertility when disposing of a farm. Tomatoes will not bccomo affected with the rot if the vines bo properly trimmed nnd staked. If they nro per mitted to fall over nnd the fruit rest on the ground , the result will bo some times an attack of the rot nnd nlso of in sects. sects.Whore Whore sheep nro troubled with flies nnd mngcots they rapidly lose lle.sh , as they got but little rest nnd have no np- potites. Damp pastures are also in jurious , often causing foot rot. The sheep should always bo sheltered at night. A fast horse is not the best for the plow or cultivator , as such horses not only exhaust themselves but the driver also. The best work can usually bo done with u slow animal , as the grass and weeds can thus more easily bo de stroyed. The recent ruins have been very favor- nblo to turnips , which should bo thinned out in the rows and well' worked until the loaves shall cover the ground. The turnip grows very rapidly , nnd only needs attention nt lirst for it to grow to n large si/.o. Ono of the principal cauecs of failure in preserving eggs is that in nearly all cases where the eggs are collected from dilTorcnt sources a few stnlo ones get in among these that nro fresh , thus injur- jnring all. Only strickly fresh eggs can bo preserved. The white nnd brown Leghorn fowl begin to iny when only five months old. They nre non-setters , lay white eggs , and rank very high as egg-producers. They are , however , rather small in size , anil do not answer ns well for market us do the larger breeds. When digging potatoes allow them to thoroughly dry before removing them to the storage bins. If dried in the shade it will bo better than exposing them to the direct rays of the sun , and they should not be stored too soon after digging them , but should bo kept spread out fern n few days. Mud in the barn yard is n sevora trln ! to htock.and plenty of absorbent uiatena. should bo used freely in order to have the barn-yard ns dry ns possible. A filthy harn-yurd often compels the stock to re main in the stalls instead of allowing it to be in the fresh air. Sheep cannot thrive unless the barn-yard bo free from mud , while cows often have their udders covered , the dirt from which passes into the pail when they nro milked. A great many fruit-growers do not cul tivate the blackberry canes niter the fruit has been gathered , under the supposition that the grass and weeds prevent winter killing ; but recent developments show that tlm ditllculty is duo to n parasite in stead of to exposure to severe cold , nnd that a thorough cultivation at this season will assist the growth of now cane nnd ttdd vigor to the plants , thus enabling them the butter to pass through the winter.

Hoover , No 278 West Twelfth ttreJ $ " , who , being sworn according to law , doth " ' , depose and s.ay : _ _ * That I have been ill for two or three year ( 2 ] with a lung trouble , which a short tlmo since resulted in hemorrhage , so that I re marked to my wife : I think about next fall I will finish up. That I have paid out hun dreds cf dollars in the past two years for medicine and advice , but pothit\g did mo any practical good. I would stop coughing for nn hour or so , but it would come again next day. The relief afforded me was only temdorary. I read of the numerous cures which had been effected by _ Dr. McCoy in the papers , and they described so closely my symptoms that I called upon him at No. 10 Park Row. Dr. McCoy told me that I had catarrh.il bronchitis , and there was serious trouble with the right lung in ' .he . form of an abscess. I was put under he treatment , and he gave me relief right away. The night sweats with which I i ind been troubled have left me and I now rest well. I began the Ueatmcnt on th i 23d of Mav last , I used to cough every nornlng ; would get sick at the stomach. 1 iavc been verv nearly strangled trying to ; ct something up when there was nothing o come up. But now I am doing splen didly. Have a clear head. I am not clouded up I can travel All day and not tire out , and I can assure you my work re quires me to go about a great deal , I am satisfied that if I had not gone under this treatment I should have been compelled to stop work entirely , and this is my busy bcason. I was obliged on account of my trouble to leave a very easy situation about a year ago because I could not stand the light air aud was constantly taking cold. [ have not felt so well for years as I do now , an'd I work hard , too. My friendi remark my improved appearance , and I > ave gained five pounds in the little time which I have been under treatment , and I am convinced that a cure will be effected. GEORGE W. HOOVER.

The disease from which Mr. Hoover suf fered was catarrhal consumption. The disease originated In a cold , which became , chronic. As n result came the formation ol mucus , which was partly discharged from the head or dropped down the throat and was partially hawked up. A large portion of it , however , was swallowed , passing into the stomach and causing catarrh there. The mucus formed by catarrh decompose * , and when it reaches the stomach Is tithcr absorbed in the blood , producing all manner of evil symptoms , or else coats over the food with a slimy material , which prevents the food from coming in contHCt with the digestivcjuices in the stomach. The food itself decompotes. forms gat or wind In larfje quantities , and causes a feel ing of bloating or fullness after eating. When the catarrh has existed In tlm head and the upper part of the tin oat for any length of time the patient living In a district where people are subject to catarrhal - * al affection and the disease has been left "i uncurcd , the catnnh invariably , sometimes slowly , extends down the windpipe and into the bronchial tubes , which tubes con vey the air to the different parts of the lungs. The tubes become aflcctcd from the swelling and the mucus arising from catarrh , and in some infctances becomes plugged up so that the air cannot get in as freely as it should.
