The executive committee of the
Commercial club has had a state
ment prepared, ahowing the busi
ness conditions existing in the
state and drawing comparisons
which show the improvements
which have been experienced in all
lines of business within the past
few months. The statement is
most conservative in its nature,
and was prepared with the greatest
care, in order to avoid any suspic
ion of "booming." It will be sent
by the Commercial club to the most
prominent eastern papers with a
request that it be published. The
full text of the document is as fol
lows: What's the matter with Ne
braska? Two years ago the legis
lature appropriated $150,000 in aid
of the drouth-stricken settlers on
the western frontier, a region
which prospered when devoted ex
clusively to stock grazing, and can
only be tilled when irrigated.
This year the corn crop was the
greatest in the history of the state,
o r rn rr i i i r n O
odu.uuu.uuu ousiieis. iuore man o,-
000,000 acres were planted to corn
this vear, and the averace yield
Was forty-five bushels to the acre
and of this vast crop more than
200,000,000 bushels will be exported.
Much of it is being shipped to the
gulf ports. It is estimated that no
less than 100.000,000 bushels will
be fed to the herds of cattle and
hogs this winter, making a revival
of the live stock industry unprece
dented in the history of Nebraska.
Millions of dollars have beed bor
rowed bv stock raisers who are
taking advantage of the low price
of corn and have bougflit feeders,
which will be ready for the market
next spring. In, Dodge county
alone, over 150,000jsheep are bein
wintered. There is an enormous
increase in the number of cattle
being wintered on the ranges. The
estimate of the " number of Ne
braska hogs which will be ready for
the market next year is 2,000,000.
Ivast year the total business of
the packing houses was not so
great in volume as in preceding
years. The drouth cut short the
supply of corn and grass, com
pelling stock-growers to, dispose ot
their stock at a disadvantage.
Stock receipts at the South Omaha
3ards for the six months ending
October 31, 1895, reached a total of
20,917 cars, while for the corres
ponding months this year the total
stock receipts amount to 23,360
cars. These figures show the re
covery from drouth conditions ot
two or three years ago. Those
who make a business of gathering
information on this subject say
there is more live stock in Ne
braska being fed for the market
than ever before in the history of
the state. When this stock shall
have been turned into money next
year," the season of business de
pression will be at an end.
Figures are at hand showing a
steadjr increase this year in the
business of the packing houses. A
notable feature of the trade is the
iucreased demand tor sheep, One
packer, who slaughtered but 9,510
sheep from May to November, 1895,
this year has killed 6S.708, over 600
per cent increase. Enormous in
crease is also shown in the number
of cattle and hogs slaughtered.
From May to November, 1895, this
house slaughtered 150, 691 hogs, and
68,361 cattle, as against 217453
hogs and 81,725 cattle this yean
During the same period, another
packer shows a proportion ol" in
crease that is niost gratifying.
Last year he killed 66,000 hogsand
2,000 cattle, while for six months
this year he has killed 90,000 hogs,
and 2,100 cattle. Another packer
gives figures on the value of his
product sold during the months
ending October 31. 1895. at $3,350,
000, while this year the total is
$3,500,000. This packer purchased;
during the period, named in 1895,
31,856 cattle," 122,3is' hogst and
12,664. sheep; in i96, 31.309 cattle,
,4S,682. hogs and 10,195 sheep. -He
paid for cattle this year $57,625
more thanfme paid last year, dur
ing the period named. In 1895, he
shipped 3,026 cars of product; this
year, 3,461 cars. For the period
named in 1895, another South Oma
