up to pasturage , and as gradually home
steaders have been growlcg larger as the
needs of the stockmen Increased. Repeated
failures of crop's taught these people that the

or more your feeling over the critical situa

state what course you deem advisable , pro

OMAHA , eb. 20. The World , New York.
N. Y , : I respond to your telegram that'lf
full , thorough Investigation shows destruc
tion of Maine was caused by Spanlsn treach
ery or culpable Spanish carelessness , wo
should demand full Indemnity and ample
apology. If both are not glv 2n , wnr IB In
evitable , however much to be deplored.
Preliminary Investigation should be thor
ough nnd dispassionate and the llndlnps of
fact should be Incontrovertible. Newspaper
sensationalism , with display type , exagger
ated telegrams anil red lire , particularly
censurable at this crisis. The president
should not be hindered by unfair criticism ,
but upheld by every patriot. There can bo
no party lines In this emergency. If war
comes , my services can be commanded and
had by and for the great republic.

NEW YORK , Fob. 20. At the headquar
ters of the Cuban junta 'n this city the matter -
tor of alleged existence of mines In the
harbor of 'Havana ' was the subject of free
discussion. In support of the allegations
that such mines were laid , flics of local
papers of November , 189G , were produced In
which It was asserted that one shipment of
six tons of dynamite was > ma'o ' from this
port and that the steamer Cludad , which
sailed about the 19th of the month named ,
refused to take passengers because It
carried a large consignment of dynamite for
General Weyler. It was also alleged In the
newspaper Illea shown that about the same
time a St. Louis concern was to make a
tender of ten tons of dynamite for Immediate
shipment to Cuba.

On the morning of February IS the life

hope of Intercepting some passing steamer
The weather proved tempestuous , with In

day on the Spanish question :
I have fully 'considered everything that I
have i .pen lu the papers , and while at Wnph
Irgton I talked to the otllclnls of the gov
ernment , and in my opinion nothing has yet
come to light that In my judgment calls for
a rupture between the United States nm
Certainly If guilt Is brought to the door of
Spain full retributive. Justice 'should be the
order of the day. Liberal Indemnity , apolo
gies and full repiratlou ought to be preferable -
able to the legislators than that course
which would1 entail the countryMtv the con
sequences of war.
The attitude oC the ( administration Is
worthy of this grout nation. Scares and
rumori of war do not miovc It. It a.-.valts
the necessity of 'war ' , meanwhile making
ready. Mr. McKlnley will not rush the
country Into a needless conflict. Should the
lionor of the country tjemund that Mr. Jlc-
Klnley sign the proc'nmatlon of war , he will
do it with the sumii love for peace , the same
trust In .the God of'our nation that charac
terized Abraham Lincoln nearly forty years
ago.The Catholic church OK umesI ntf attitude
of any kind. It has not 'been called upon

intlon mutters nothing. The question is
not ono of icllglon. If'there Is a question nt

KANSAS CITV , Mo. .Feb. 2C , The Star
says : The railroads In the Transmlssouri and
Southwestern freight bureaus have saved
notlco that ou April 1 the privilege of feedIng -
Ing cattle In transit to this market \\I11 bo
cut oft In the stoto of Kansas. Shippers are
up In arms over the notlco and arc com
bining every Influence to prevent the iiill-
roads from putting the obnoxious order Into
effect. The contemplated move of the rail
roads Is a more serious menace to shippers
; han the wiping out of the carload rates ou
live stock shipments.
Ono of the worst features of the cutting
off of the live stock feeding privileges by the
rallronds Is that It does not apply to tlio
state of Nebraska. Omaha has enjoyed the
benefits of Hie feeding privilege In common
with Kansas City , and according to the ac
tion of the railroads Is to enjoy the privilege
exclusively for the future. The movement
s calculated to benefit Oinalm .IB a llvo
stock market at tlio expense of Kansas City.
Shippers will send fattened cattle to that
narkct instead of to Kansas City If the rall-
oads concede the feuding in trcmrlt prlvl-
ege. It Is practically a rate discrimination
against this market , and the railroad com-
iiissloners of Kansas and the courts will un
doubtedly be appealed to to prevent It from
going Into effect.
The railroads defend their action on the
ground that the feeding privilege has boon
greatly abused and has icsulted In vicious
iractlces In the way of celling expense bills.
t Is alleged that shippers who were not en-
Itled to the rate thought the expense bills
nnd thus were enabled to ship cattle Into
Kansas City nt the rate of $10 a car.
