( Special. ) , Thc Cedar vallc-y bn now a magnificent Ir- rlcatlon canal , constructed by the Nebraska Irrigation and Power company. Thla canal Ja tlio nearest Irrigation enterprise to the eastern border ot the state , and It has been constructed despite the fact that thn Cedar valley has lost but ono crop In a wliolo generation. The Cedar river la a never fall- IIIR stream , 100 miles long. It springs up In -the far away sand hills ) and although It runs through several counties It receives the waters ot no tributary creek. The river la supplied by the under-earlh channels , the water lit which travels but a mile per annum. Conseauontly , should rain fall for another yeir or two the Ccdnr would still bo certain of , Its full supply of water. An entire- section of land Just north of Spaldlng has been made ready arid will be ; planted to fruit trees and vlneynrdn thla spring. Our hills afford the right shelter from nun arid wind. It Is a well known fact that the north and east slopes arc the only plaice who o orc atda are a sure success In Nebraska , and wo hava 200 acres of such dopes. The fruit hills of Council Bluffs give an average of $100 profit per acre every year , and they offer as flno a sight as the vineyards of Burgundy. But these hills are worth $500 an acre , and whert planted with fruit trees In full bearing $1,000. The Sraldlng h'lls ' are not so sleep , and not BO much exposed to the high winds. They nro smooth and well nheltercd , and they nro still at , nominal prices. Our irrigation ditch flows at the foot of the hills and It will bo an easy worlc to ralso the water on top of the lillla In lakes. If necessary. That would make our fnilt lands equal to any In the United States for mols- lure , shelter ami sunshlno. Wo have hero a Franciscan monastery preparing to open an Industrial school. Ono of the principal branches , that are practical for Nebraska , Is horticulture , and that will bo taught here by experienced teachers.

There Is another export In fruit growing on the ground. A Prsnclj village of wine growers .may come. Wo offer this most lib eral terms to anyone who wishes to plant trees for a few acres of tree lands. Hera Is n chance to make a flno homo.

Tbo head and tiunk gave every evidence of foul play , the eltull show- Ins several deep wounds. Thcro was noth ing else to give any clew to the man's lOcn- tlty. After the body had been lifted from the barrel the body ot the baby was found. It was nude save for a thin flannel yhlrt and there were two marks on the side cf the head , apparently nmdo with a blunt Instrument. The bcdy ot the elder male was that of a man between C5 nr-d 70 years of nge.

PACIFIC STEAMER OVERDUE Has a Total of Ono Hundred and Fifty-Nino Persons on Board , AGENTS HAVE NOT GIVEN UP HOPE YET verr Storm * IIi \c llccn I'xncrlcnceil Since the Ship Suited VcH < icl Snlil lo lie One of tlie llvnt In the Service. SAN FRANCISCO , March 8. The fleam- ship City of Ulo1 i\tf \ Janeiro , which left hero February C for Yokohama , has not yet ar rived there , nnd fears are entertained for Its safety. It was duo at Yokohama February 20 , but not n word has been heard from It. The Hlo carried 155 people , four cabin pas- Bangers , ten Europeans , ten Japanese and twenty-two Chinese In the steerage. The crow consisted ot thirty whites nnd sevpnty- nlno Chinese. The cabin passengers were J < Fisher , W. T. Sylvester , Lamar Lyndcn and Mru. Lamar Lyndcn , The steamship people say there Is some chance that the Hlo may have been forced to pass Yokohama and go on to Hong Kong. The Hlo do Janeiro is ono of the hald- sorrcst and largest vessels engaged In the transpacific service of the Pacific mall. It Is a four master , amply provided with sails so that In case of damage to the engines whllo at sea there would be nothing to pre vent the ship weathering- way to some near by port with the use or canvas alone. If this were the case , however , It would doubtless be long delayed and It might bo oven weeka before It would bo heard from. The nio was built In 1S78 at Chester , Pa. It Is of steel and Is eaulpncd with the most modern machinery nnd appurtenances and has the reputation of being a fairly fast and staunch vessel also. When the Ulo left this port It carried a cargo of general merchandlso valued at nearly $1,000,000. The merchandise , which was consigned to various Japanese and Chinese ports , was valued' In all at $152,233 , The major portion of this cargo comprised flour for China , cotton for Japan and canned goods and1 sugar for both countries. General Superintendent Center of the Pa cific Mall company stated the company had not yet becun to lose hope for the safety cf tbe UIo. "Of course. " said he. "wo can not help feeling somewhat anxious. Wo are hopctul , and have good reasons for ontort.xln- Ing that hope. Many things could have hap pened by which tlio long absence ot the Ulo could ba accounted for In our minds , even thoueh we have received no dispatches ror anything of a definite nature In the shape of news from the ship. We do know , for In stance , that they have been having very heavy weather between the Hawaiian Islands and Japan ot late. It Is not at all Improb able that the Hlo got Into the. worst ol this and that Captain Hussell decided to take pleny of room and not antagonize the storm , oven thouRh ho might lose much tlmo In reaching Yokohama. It Is possible that lie found It compulsory to even skip by Yokohama hama entirely. That has happened before. Wo did not become anxious when the steamer wag only overdue a week , because the Belglc , In making her last run down , was six days late. U reported exceedingly heavy weather. "The Rio Is a good stout boat and per fectly capable of taking care of Itself under the good management In ' ny kind of weather. It was only recently overhauled and put Into thoroughly gcod condition. The ship was at that time pronounced to be about as good a sea boat as wo had on our line. The engines are In perfect condition , so 'far ns wo know , and In fact everything about her was In a nt condition for any kind of a voyage. " _ _ Club Dinner * In. Gotliiuu. When the clubs of Now York were fewer and their housra were smaller than they are now the restaurants had a monopoly of all the big dinners of a heml-publlc character. Every one of the dozen or moro large clubs In New York now have a kitchen where a dinner can be prepared for several hundred people wltli as much attention as the largest restaurant could give to It. Many large dinners have been given at the new Metropolitan club. During the winter the Lotos gives half a dozen dinners In Its club house , each one ot which Is attended by 200 or more people , and as many cfl 275 persons have been dined there. The University and the Manhattan clubs glvo large dinners from tlmo to time. Of course , such a dinner necessitates the service oj extra waiters , but it does not strain the kitchen service. _ Autorn FlKht n Duel. MARION , Ind , . March 8.

OAI.IFOIIMA'S Sl'KKIlAOIJ CAMPAHJN. Hunnu It , Anthony Knront < > tn Take Part In II. TOPKKA , Kan. , March 8. Susan 11. An thony passed through Topcka yesterday on her way to California to advocate the cause of woman suffrage. She said she hoped the women of California \sould profit by the ex perience ot the nomcn ct Kansas In ISO I and keep party politics out ot their cam paign. The legislature of California has submitted a constitutional amendment en franchising women as the legislature ot Kan sas did In 1833. and she believes that by ROO.I management the political parties can bo Induced to endorse the proposition In their respective platforms. In their work among the democrats the women expccT to have the active support of Governor lludd. who Is an advocate otoman suffrage. U Is not expected that any political party Mill put out n declaration of principles until after the national conventions thall have been held and therefore the women will have ample tlmo for a campaign of education. It Is proposed to circulate petitions asking the party conventions to endorse woman suN fragc , nnd Mlsa Anthony believes that the iiameaNif 250,000 or 300,000 men and women of the state can bo secured. Fully halt of llioso will bo the names cf men , and as the total veto ot the state Is only about 2CO.OOO the politicians will hardly Ignore n petition signed by ono-lmlt of the entire voting population. Miss Anthony will bo Joined In a short time by MUs Yatcs and Anna Shaw , who will speak In every county In the state. It 1s proposed to hold two day conventions In every ono ot the fifty-seven counties. Miss Anthony will speak In San Diego , Los An- ccles and other largo towns In the state , finally establishing herself In San Fran cisco , where slio will bo the guest of Mrs. A. A. Sargent , the widow of the ex-United States senator. Mls Anthony said that she had just nw piled to an Invitation for her to be present at a conference of reform forces to bo held at St. Louts In July. She declined , saying that she could bo ot no value In such n conference , as she could pledge no help at th a polls. Whenever her clientele should be given the ballot she would feel It her duty and the duty of all women to take part In such meetings , but without the ballot her counsel would have no weight In delibera tions ] of that character.
