"Tho recovery from a general business
depression, such as visited this country
in 1893 is, I believe, pretty suro to como
tirst in tho agricultural communities,
and Nebraska can look with somo confi
dence to a roturn of prosperity before It
becomes general in tho cast. By fall
business will have resumed something
liko its normal condition, and with a
good crop Nobraska will bo in an excel
lent condition. It is an indisputable
fact that tho tarilT agitation has greatly
rotarded resumption in manufacturing,
whllo tho present uncortalnity exists,
progress muBt necessarily bo slow. Even
tho democrats tho business men re
gard tho Wilson bill as a very unwise
Mr. Dawes is of tho opinion that tho
present year will witness u considerable
influx of Bottlers into Nebraska. This
opinion it might bo said, is quite genor
At tho annual meeting of tho Lincoln
Clearing Houso association held Wed.
ncsday, N. S. Harwood was olocted presi
dent; J. II. McClay, vice-president and
O. II. ImhofT was continued as manager.
Mr. C. G. Dawes returned tho other
day from a visit to tho financial confers
of tho east. His observation of condi
tions in Now York, Boston and other
eastern cities leads him to take a hope
ful view of tho business situation.
"There is' ho said "a noticcablo im
provement in nearly overy lino, duo, to
somo extent to tho fact that doalera
having rcfrainod from buying as long as
they could, aro now forced into tho
market. Supplies of manufactured pro
ducts have been exhausted and manu
facturers must of necessity turn out
now goods. Of courBo, thoro is very
general depression, but tho worst has
been passed, and thoro is no question
but that things will steadily improve
frBhi now on."
"I had occasion to como in contact
with somo of tho largo investment com
panies and financial institutions, and u
littlo examination mado it clear to my
mind that tho west has, on the whole
suffered much less than tho east. Tho
investment companies report many
losses; but tho perceutago of Iosb on
eastern securities 1b notably heavy. An
ofllcer of ono of tho largest companies
told mo that ho wished all of their
money waB loaned in tho west. Tho
west lias como through tho last six
months with a protty good record, and
an evidence of tho contidonco of eastern
capital in our part of tho country may
bo found in tho fact that monoy has
:ow commonced to como west for in
vestment. It will como in increasing
volume and with tho assuranco of a
good crop, good times ought to make a
speedy reappearance in this locality."

Elsewhere in this issue of Tiik Coun

"At tho close of half a .lecade of ofll

that tho growth of tho bunk has been in

the most acute that the country has
over oxporionced, when all tho banks of

endured a sovero strain, your courngo
was an inspiration, while your personal
credit nnd financial standing was a bul

to hold tho bank in tho high placo it has

The Journal now exhibits a freakish
nes decidedly at variance with its
vaunted conservatism, Ono of Its latest
unconventional manifestations Is tho
addition of a second dramatic critic to
Its stair, and wo believe wo can truth
fully say that tho Journal Is the only
paper in Nebraska employing two
dramatic critics, as to the reason for this
doubling up process wo tiro not fully in
formed. Tho thought suggests itsolf
that iw Journal management may havo
concluded that two dramatic critics are
bettor able to stand tho jeers of tho pub
lie than one, and wo are of the opinion
that this conjecture is tho correct solu
tion of thu dualism of lute noticed in the
dramatic columns of our contemporary.
To toll the truth wo find much to com
mend in this new departure. The target
is moro likely to bo hit by forty shots
than by one, and there is somo chance,
now that there is a multiplicity of opin
ion, that tho Journal' criticisms of tho
drama as it is found in Lincoln, may
occasionally reflect an Intelligence and
discrimination in keeping with tho
traditions of a paper that drains tho
state university of so much infantile
and maturer artistic nerve. Wo moat
the present writing, unuhlo to statu
whether tho gifted contribute. who
sport their knowledge of thu drama In
thu columns of thu Journal, aro ad
vanced pupils in Mr. Jones' celebrated
kindergarten school of journalism ut tho
university or persons of riper experience,
or whether they uro playful expectations
of tho olllco boy and tho devil. But
they are Interesting, and, after all that's
tho main thing.

Our congratulation goes out to thu
Call on two of its latest accomplish
ments, thu issuance of the annual review

Mason. Inviuwof tho general depres
sion of business it required somo futituul
on the part of the Call management to
undertake a special edition of this sort,
and wo aro pleased to observe that thu
venture met with thu success it deserved.
Thu ruviuw was carefully compiled and
it constituted a most qualifying showing
of Lincoln's progress in a dull your. It
Is generally free from exaggeration, and
the review is a good thing to send to
ono's friends in thu east.
Walt Mason's friends und admirers in
this city includes protty neurly tho en

for thu relief of tho Buttering poor.
Tm: Couitimt has mado un investigation
of this Bubjeut this week und while thoro
is some deprivation in Lincoln, it can bo
truthfully stated, us tho result of u
somewhat extended examination that
the suffering in this city is probably
much less than is guuuraly supposed
und considering the experience of other
cities is very light. Wo do not mean to
be understood by this us meaning that
there is no hardship among tho poor.
There aro cases of genuino destitution
and particularly distressing cases have
come under tho observation of Eldur
Howe and others. But overy winter
brings its allotment of distress to thu
poor, and to thu credit of Lincoln, be it
said, thu destitution is not very much
greater than Is usually thu caso ut this
season. Thu county commissioners
huvo afforded much relief and private
contributions have been and aro liberal.
Deserving cases have been promptly
looked after and there is reasonable as
