ve;:k set aside for securing
PROCLAMATION BY GOVERNOR
Importance of Looking Carefully .to
This Matter Strongly Urged by
Seed corn needB of Nebraska farm
era aro sot forth In n proclamation
Blgned by Governor Aldrlch.
The executive calls upon farmers
to select seed corn early and urges
them to set apart the week beginning
September 30 for this purpose. The
Tho experience of successful far
mers throughout the corn belt and
tho results of tests made by the 'var
ious experiment stations, show con
clusively that tho early selection and
proper caro of seed corn always re
sults In seed of strong germinating
power. Tills Is true for the follow
ing reasons: ,
FJrst Early selection secures early
maturing ears, thus lessening danger
Second Corn selected in the Held
can be taken from stalks wh'ich havo
tho power of producing j;ood cars of
corn under normal or even under ad
verse conditions, thus Increasing the
chances of securing high yielding
Third Seed corn properly cured
will not be Injured by freezing.
Thero was a seed corn shortage
last year due to the hard freeze before
tho corn had dried out. As a result
all available seed in the state was
used for the 1912 crop. We have no
surplus seed on hand. Reports from
all sections of the state show that the
crop this year is from dne to three
weeks later than normal. If we
should have an early freeze we would
have a seed corn famine next year.
This would mean that much of our
seed corn for the 1913 crop would be
eecured from other states.
A test made at the Nebraska exper
iment station for three years shows
that seed from other states havo aver
aged G.2 bushels less per "acre than
native grown seed. With these facts
In mind I urge the early selection of
seed corn and designate the week be
ginning September 30, 1912. as "Seed
Corn Week." Its general observance
will Insure a sufficient amount of na
tive grown seed for our 1913 crop.
Asking for Securities.
Thirty-live applications aggregating
bonds to the value of $G40,500 have
been filed with State Treasurer
George asking for the purchase of
these securities-under the provisions
of the Potts re-Investment measure.
The latter act, passed at the last ses
sion of the state legislature provide
for the- salo of the bonds of other
states, by the state treasurer, and the
Investment of the funds In bonds Is
sued by civil divisions of Nebraska.
Fremont school bonds to tho value of
$125,000 have just bpen purchased
with proceeds of this fund, but the
transaction has not been formally
Walt Has Problems.
Secretary of State Walt Is not hunt
ing any trouble on the ballot proposi
tion, but. will wait till the trouble
comes before taking up the matter.
Mr. Walt probably will be called upon
before long to settle tho matter of
the candidates of thejiew party get
ting a place on the ticket, but until
that tlmo comes he Is giving out no
opinions. In all probability the mat
ter will be put up to Attorney General
Martin when the proper time comes
for making a decision In tho matter.
Corn Acreage Reduced.
According to Labor Commissioner
Guyo, the acreage of corn In Nebras
ka for this year Is much less than has
been the prevailing idea. From pub
lished accounts it has been under
stood that tho acreage of corn for
this season was greater than tho state
has ever had, but taking the reports
of the assessors for It tho stato will
fall 141,978 acres short of tho 1911
crop and ovor 500,000 less than tho
crop of 1910. -
Commissioner Guye was led to
make the Investigation on account of
an advertisement tent out by the
Kansas publicity bureau claiming that
KanEaH would havo a crop this year
much larger than Nebraska and larg
er than any previous year. Referring
to tho crop reports sent out by the
government, Mr. Guyo says that this
year, as well as previous yeaiB, tho
Kansas publicity bureau Is claiming
moro than they havo a right to claim.
Last year, notwithstanding Kansas
made great claims as a corn state, tho
records show that Nebraska produced
a greater acreage and a larger crop
per acre than did the Sunflower state.
Kansas Figures Boosted,
Will M. Maupln, who has made a
Btudy of tho resources of Kansas and
Nebraska; and has ropcatedly mado
comparison of the crops raised each
yoar In the two states, says tho crop
reports of tho Sunflower stato havo
always been greatly exaggerated and
boosted beyond tho real figures In
order to make that state appear a bet
ter farming state than the Comhusk
er state. He agrees with Commission
er Guyo that with comparisons prop
erly made Nebraska makes the best
MANY SEEKING LAND.
Commissioner Guye Kept Busy
About four months ago Labor Com
missioner Guye began a systematic
Investigation of tho vacant lands of
Nebraska with tho object In view of
having the same taken up. Ho met
with considerable opposition from
certain sources which wero Interested
In keeping the lands unsettled, but he
kept at It and tho result lias been far
beyond his expectations.
In fact Commissioner Guyo "bulld
ed better than he knew," for his In
vestigations and the published state
ments mado by him drew the atten
tion of tho government with the re
sult that department officials took up
the matter and found that besides the
KInkald land in western Nebraska,
there aro subject to entry seventy
four Irrigated claims under ditch
which can be taken undo the home
In order to get Irrigated claims,
which run from forty to eighty
ncres in size, the person filing will.be
compelled to pay $55 per acre for
the water right. He will have twelve
years to pay for It In, paying $5.25
per acrp at tho time the land 1b ta
ken. After the third crop is raised
ho will then bo required to pay $5
per yoar for ten years until tho whole
amount 1s paid. The government
charges nothing for the land, but tho
amount covers the water right, which
Is perpetual, the owner of the land
paying nothing for the water after the
whole amount Is paid, but will havo
freo use of same after that time.
Mr, Guye will leave for Chicago,
where he will take charge of the spe
cial train run by the Burlington to
western Nebraska whero these lands
lay. 'The Burlington land department
says that never In the history of their
tourist and homeseekcrs' exclusions
have they had so many Inquiries for!
particulars and applications for ac
commodations on the trains. Com-;
missloner Guye has himself received
assurance from over fifty persons that,
they will join the train at some point"
on the road and letters are reaching;
tho labor bureau every day- assuring
Commissioner Guyo that they will
join the excursion.
There Is room for hundreds of set
tlers on the vacant lands of Nebras
ka, and should the Burlington efforts
be successful the Northwestern will
run a similar train later which will
reach a different portion of the state.
Robert W. McGinnls, passenger agent
for the Northwestern, located at Lin
coln, has been working up the matter
with Commissioner Guyo and will run
a similar train as soon as the results
from the first excursion are knovn.
A letter from tho land department
at Washington received by Commis
sioner Guye assures him that tho gov
ernment will have representatives
meet tho train at a stated point to as
sist in locating those who desire to
take up the lands under the home

Mlssourlan Wants to Be ''Shown."
Attorney General Martin has re
ceived a letter from E G. Robinson,
a prosecuting attorney In a Missouri
county, In which the "show-me" man
wants to know about supremo court
decisions in this stato which refer to
testimony secured by the aid of
bloodhounds. The attorney general ha3i
not found any decision along this lino,
and a judge of the supreme court is
authority for tho statement that no(
decision of this character, according
to record, was ever given by a Ne
Lincoln Delegate to Attend.
Secretary Walt received this morn
ing a letter from E. M. Jenkins of
Kenesaw stating that his father was
visiting him and would attend the cer
emonies of unveiling the Lincoln stat
ue. The old gentleman la 91 yearB of
ago and waB a delegate to the conven
tion which: nominated Lincoln for the
presidency and also served through
the civil war.
Veterans to Have Part.
Secretary Walt has received several
communications regarding tho part
that the veterans of the civil war will

Lincoln statue. The matter was taken
up by tho Lincoln post and as a re
