FIFTY YEARS OLD
AN APPEAL TO THE PEOPLE OF
The Committee In Charge Issues a
Public Statement A Propel Ob
servance of the Signing of the Kansas-Nebraska
Bill In 1854.
Tho committee ot citizens charged
with tho work of arranging for tiio
soml-centennlnl of Nebraska, May 31,
havo issued tho following:
To tho Peoplo of tho Stato of Ne
braska: On May 30, 1851, tho presi
dent of tho United StnteB approved
yvhnt is known nB tho Kansas-Nebraska
bill, tho most important legislative
and executive action In tho history of
tho country west of tho Missouri river
ulnco tho Louisiana purchase was
mado under tho direction of Thomas
Jefferson. Tho fifty years that havo
ulnco elapsed havo been prolific in
groat events, but none arc more wor
thy of noto than tho development that
has como during tho half century to
tho Trans-Missouri section of tho re
public, nnd especially to tho states of
Kansas and Nebraska.
Tho undersigned, a committee of
citizens, have been charged with tho
duty of arranging for a seml-ccnten-ninl
celebration of this event.
Dy both fcdornl and Btate law tho
30th day of May of each year Is do
voted to memorial observances of the
gallant spirits who In their lives serv
ed their country during tho great war
of 18C1-C5. That day being thus de
voted to holy purpose, it has been
thought best to hold tho exercises
properly incident to the seml-ccnten-nlnl
on Tuesday, tho 3lBt day of May.
Thus will como a proper recognition
ot Memorial day, and jilso pf tho Im
portant fact that tho stato of Nebras
ka received aftor the great war a
larger proportion of ex-soldiers than
any other state in tho west, nnd these
soldier-citizens havo added greatly to

Tho Grand Army of tho Republic,
which hns had direction of tho me
morial observances, has boon In tho
habit fqr years of detailing members
of tho organization to address tho
.scholars of all schools throughout tho
state on the lnst school day prior to
tho 30th day of May, and It haB re
quested that on tho Sunday preceding
that date, In nil tho churches of tno
otato, tho clergy should make fitting
roforonce to tho incidents of note
proper to the day and Inculcate pat
riotism and fitting sacrifice for tho
Tho eommltteo suggests to the
Grand Army and to tho clergy that it
would bo most fitting, In tho schools
and in tho churches, to call attention
to the fifty years of growth and pros
perity that havo come, not only to
tho United States, but especially to
tho part of It in which our lot has
been cast, and on Memorial day it
certainly will bo appropriate that all
who address tho peoplo, while- giving
fitting tribute- to those who served the
country and havo passed away, should
mako like reference to tho progress
that has been mado during the half
cntury that will closo upon that day.
On tho 31st day of May, in tho city
of Omaha, there will bo proper ob
servance of tho signing of tho Kansas-Nebraska
bill by the president of
tho United States. Tho detail of tho
exercises will shortly bo published
and tho city of Omaha invites all citi
zens of tho stato to Join In this cele
bration by local ceremonial If they
wish, but proferably within tho limits
ot the metropolis of the state.
Tho committee takes pleasure in an
nouncing that a son of Nebraska, who
has achieved great distinction and
prominence by reason of his ability
and coquence Hon. Henry D. Estn
brook, now of Now York will deliver
tho oration of tho day befitting tho
occasion. It is expected that other
speakers of worth and prominenco
will recount tho Interesting events of
the fifty year3 that havo passed since
the birthday of tho state of Nobraska.
Military and civil parades will nlso
be nu incident, and tho latchstring of
Omaha will be out in hoarty welcom
ing to all who wish to glorify the
ovent of May 30, 1854.

THE 28TH OF APRIL.
THE PROGRAM FROM NOW OH
Work on Appropriation Bills Well in
Hand Four Days' Discussion Look
ed for on the Postoffice Appropria
WASHINGTON April 28 has been
discussed in committee rooms und
nmoug senators and representatives as
not at nil an Improbable date for tho
termination of tho present session of
congress. Tho pension appropriation
bill has been received from the houso
nnd reported from tho'seijnte eommlt
teo with an amendment. Discussion
of servico pension legislation, It Is be
lieved, will bo exhausted before the
bill Is placed on its pnssage, and tills
measure, therefore, Is not considered n
barrier to early adjournment.
The army appropriation Is agreed
upon except as to four amendments,
which are In conference, and It is
thought thero amendments will not re
suit In much further discussion in
either body of congress. Tho confer
ence report of tho agricultural bill has
been agreed to in the senate, but no
action has been taken by the house. A
second conference has been ordered on
the fortification bill on tho senate
amendments for tho purchase of a sub
marine boat for instruction in coast
defense nnd making nn appropriation
for the completion for a certain typo
of disappearing gun carlage. Roth the
nnal and tho district appropriation
bills aro in conference. Tho confer
ence report on tho Indian appropria
tion bill has been mado and is likely
to cause debate for ono or two days.
Four days' additional discussion is
looked for on the postofllcc- appropria
tion bill. The amendments that havo
been adopted aro not of a character
that will tie the bill up In conference
for more than two or three days. It
It expected that tho sundry civil bill
will bo roported from tho senate com
mittee on appropriations on Tuesday
nnd tho mllltnry academy bill will bo
ready by the timo tho sundry civil bill
is passed. It is expected that the gen
oral deficiency bill vlll bo reported

publicans leaders of tho senate antici
pate holding a meeting of the steering
committee early next week to agree on
a general program for tho remaining
day of tho session.
PROGRESS IN IRRIGATION.
Unexpected Difficulties Tncountered
in aome Localities.
WASHINGTON The progress
made In the Irrigation work of tho

tion issued by the geological survey,
which points out tho necessity of
great caution and conservatism in
the extension of tho reclamation
It says that of tho irrigation pro
jects favorabl; reported in 1903,
which incluaei those on the Truckco
river in Nevada, on the Salt river in
Arizona, on tho "Milk river in Mon
tana, on tho Sweetwater river in Wy
oming nnd on tho Gunnison river In
Colorado, the Nevada and Arizona
projects havo been found feasiblo and
construction of the engineering works
along tho Truckco and Salt rivers
lias progressed to a reasonable ex
tent. Tho Montana project, however, has
presented unexpected engineering dif
ficulties ns well as complications re
garding water rights so that prog
ress Is slow. It has been found nec
essary to modify the first plans In or
der to achlovo early results.
The Wyoming project, as at first
outlined, has been found impractica
ble. A better reservoir site than that
on tho Sweetwater river, however,
has been discovered on tho North
Platte, so that a larger scheme of de
velopment may be worked out thero

Very great engineering difficulties
are encountered in the accomplish

that tho Japanese fleet Is engaged in
