Mr. E. Rose water, editor of tho Omaha
lice, in an nrticlo in tho Topoka Cajiital,
replying to statements niado by John P.
St. John makes somo interesting com
parisons between Nebraska and Kansas.
Ho says: "Tho totul dobt in Nebraska,
Btato, county and municipal, in 1880,
amounted in tho nggregato to 87,180,074,
or a per capita debt of 81(5.58. In 1800
tho uggregato debt of Nebraska amount
ed to 815,5,17,772, or n por capita debt of
814,07, being a liccrcaso of 81.01 per
capita. On tho othor hand, tho aggro
gato dobt of Kansas in 1880 is computed
by tho ccitsus bureau as 815,012,114, or n
por capita debt of 815.07. In 1800, tho
dobt of Kansas had renched 840,020,022,
or a por capita of 828.47, an increase of
812.50 por capita. This increase alono is
only 82.10 less than tho total per capitu
dobt of Nebraska. With ono third
greater population than Nebraska, Kan
sas has nearly threo times her debt; A
Btriking contrast between tho two states
is afforded by tho uunuul interest chargo
on thoir respective bonded debts. In
1880 tho annual interest chargo in No
- braeka was 8541,072, equal to an interest
chargo por capita of 81.20. Tho annual
interest churgo for 1890 amounted to
8025,(36.1, cquol'to a por capita of 87
cents, or a reduction of .'5.1 cents por
capita. Tho Knnsan unnual interest
chargo for 1880 amounted to 81,075,758,
equal to 81.17 por capita. In 1800 tho
intorcBt chargo had risen to 82,1585,075, or
a por capita of 81.G7, being an incrcaso
of 50 conts." .
Mr. Rpsowator points out that ac
cording to tho census of 1800, Nebraska
had n population of 1,050,703, and Kan
sas 1,427,000, and then makes tho follow
ing statement: -'According to tho re
port of tho comptroller of tho curron3y
for 1801, tho combined capital, surplus
and deposits, of all national, state and
privato banks and loan and trust com
panies in KansaB in, that year was 85.1,
800,588, or 837.22 por capita, and that for
tho banks in Nebraska, 8G0,.iai,G20, or
$00-10 por capita."
Tho manager of Snow, Church & Co.,
morcantilo agency, Omaha, says: "Tho
corn crop Ib never assured until tho
middle of Soptombor, honco tho predic
tion that tho business of tho year will bo
dono in tho fall months. Country mer
chants aro watching tho gruin and stock
markots these days. A raise in tho prico
of oithor grain or stock at this timo
would do much toward loosoning up
matters in tho country districts. As tho
murkot stands at present tho outlook is
cortainly not oncouraging, nnd notwith
standing tho low prico of beef farmers
find it more profltublo to food than to
sell thoir corn. Even u slight increase
in tho prico of oithor cattle or corn would
huvo u benoilciul effect. Merchants who
aro now carrying farmors and have dono
bo foi tho last fow months would get in
some roady cash, resulting in bettor col
lections. That much '0.1 corn is hold in
tho state is corroborated in roports from
all sections, excepting tho far westorn
counties. Much of this will bo lot looso
botwoon now and tho 1st of April, as
after that duto a tax is levied on gaain
hold, and only farmorB in tho most pros
perous condition will bo ablo to hold out
much boyond that timo. This will im
provo collections all around, and easo up
country merchants who have been carry
ing their patrons. With outstandings
fairly woll cleanod up, tho avorago mer
chant would bo inclined to buy, and in
in better shape to meet his bills."
With the Wilson bill in a fair way to
bo disposed of in such a manner an to do
tho least possible harm, with plenty of
mnnoy in tho banks, and factories all
over tho country resuming operations,
why do times still continue hard?
A prominent jobbor of Omaha, noted
for his knowledgoof business and atYolrB
in general, gives Tin: Couhikk tho fob
lowing opinion:
"You can all talk about free silver nnd
tho tariff, and no doubt Itoth have had
their Bhuro In causing tho recent panic
Tho silver bill tlrst demoralized tho
mnnoy market; no doubt of that; tho fear
of unfavorable tariff legislation para
lyzod.our Industries; no doubt of that;
but tho silver bill did not pass, and tho
tariff bill will work no great harm when
it does. How do I uacount for tho con-t-'nucd
hard times? My answer to this
consists of juBt four wordB, 'Pay day has
como.' Yes Blr, pay dy has como.
When money bocamo tight, and banks
woro failing everywhere and bunkers
wore drawing In their loans, that wns
whon tho hard timcB cunio.thnt was tho
tlrst call for pay, and pay day began
right thoro. Tho consumer owed tho
retailor, tho retailor owed tho jobbor.tho
jobbor owed tho manufacturer and im
porter, and they all owed tho banks.
When the banks called in thoir lonnB
n Bottloment of courso wbb inaugurated,
and tho man who owed moro than ho
was worth, or who was doing too largo it
business for his capital, was Bwamped,
und tho loss was divided all around.
Somo secured an extension, but it was
on tho condition of dctinito settlement,
and tho settling process Ib still going on,
und will continuofor somo months. Our
fiscal j car begins in August, and I fig
uro on ono solid year of settlement, last
ing until August noxt, n pay day of
twelve months duration, and then tho
hiBt vestiges of tho panic will huvo dis
appeared, and wo will start in doing
business anow. Yes sir, pay day has
come, pay day is here, and when wo
huvo settlod up all around, business will
go on us it did before, und wo will seo
somo good timcB in Nebraska, ae good
times its wo havo over soon." ,
Snow, Church & Co., of Omuha fur
nish Thk Coukirk tho following view
of business prospects in Omaha und tho
state: "Tho good weather this week
Booms to havo infused now lifo into bus
iness. Thoro aro no startling develop
ments, but orders begin coming in in
Omaha moro lively in all jobbing lines,nnd
tho general tono seems firmer and bet
tor. That W6 will not'h'avou largo busi
ness this spring admits of no doubt, und
tho most sunguino business man knows
this to bo tho case. But fuirly good
wouthor will cortainly bring fairly good
trade It is not to ho expected that tho
business this spring will come anything
near that of of last spring, which us
every ono knows was lurgo. Tho goner
ul opinion seems to bo, although it is
hard to express an opinion at this timo,
that trado would fall off from 20 to .'50
por cent this spring, nnd thut will bo a
fair business. If howovor, spring Ib slow
in cominc nnd wo uot moro bad weath
er, business will bo poor, except of
courso, in somo lincB. What tho month
of March will bring remains to bo seen.
If good weather continues, business will
continuo to brighten up; if wo get bad,
cold weather, tho reverse will bo tho
Frank M. Blish, manugor of Dun's
Mercantile agency, makes tho following
summary of tho business situation for
Thk Couuier:
"Business this wook preBonts no now
features. Transaction in nearly all lines
havo boon light, and retail dealers aro
complaining rather moro than common
of thoir collections Tho wouthor has
been all thut could bo reasonably asked;
but It must bo confessed that results
havq boon, for tho most part disappoint
ing. Country trudo is fuirly healthy,
but buyorB uro very cautious ond what
has como to bo known as tho "waiting
policy" still prevails. Tho old timo snap
and vim seem to huvo disappeared
uttorly for tho timo being. Sovorul
Btocks havo changed hands during tho
wook and bo.uo othor changes havo re
sulted also; but thoro huvo boon no out
und out failures, und wo can only iiopo
thut spring will inaugurate u condition
of things, bo fur un improvement over
thoso now oxisting, us to convince tho
most scoptlcal and timid of a speedy re
turn to bottor times."
About tho middle of this month thorn
will bo Homo important business changes.
M. Ackerman &. Co., tho "Famous," who
woro recently burnt nut, huvo loused tho
largo McConnoll building, 1020 O street,
formerly occupied by Bottmun k Co,,
und will uccupy two Jloois, each 142x25
foot, with a millinery stock. Tho first
floor will bo devoted to tho retail busi
ness nnd tho Btock which is a! roady pur
chased and in tho city or on tho way,
will bo by fur tho largest over brought
to Lincoln. The wholesale department
will bo very lurgoly increused, tho entire
second tioor being devoted to it. An
olovator und othor improvement i uro
now boing put in. All of tho old stock
will bo Bold In it lump, und everything In
tho new store will bo brand now und
fresh. This branching out on a lurgo
scale at this time indicates an abund
ance of faith on tho part of Ackerman &
Co. Mr. Ackerman Is looking forward
to a lively spring trade.
Tho old Ackerman cornet, Twelfth
and O streots, is, with possibly ono ex.
coptlun, the best comer in town, and as
soon as vacated and renovated utter tho
fire, It will bo occupied by Frank C.
Zohrung'B drug sloro. This Will be Mr.
Zohrung'a first move since starting in
business, having boon in tho present
location for moro than twelve years. Ho
will put In a new stock and equip tho
store In tho finest manner.

Whon Mr. Zohrung moves his old store
will bo takou by SundorKon, Scluiremau
A- Davis, tho well known hoot and shoo
dealers, who will havo almost twice as
much room in thoir now quarters, and
bo in much better shape to handle their
lorgo und rapidly growing business.
Duncan, Hollingor & Co., 8.17 P. streot,
furnish tho following special market
summary to Thk Ooukiku: Wheat:-
During tho last week wheat has shown
alternate strength and weakness within
rathor it narrow rango, but somo ad
vunco in 'prico has been established.
Tho principal catiso of strength 'in Chi
cago has been caused by tho tenacity
with which tho ownors of wheat in ele
vators in tho northwest hold on to their
property. Millers in MlnncniKilts aro
paying .'to higher than tho prico of simi
lar wheat in Chicago und as such a Btato
of mutters points to the possibility of
shipments from Chicago to Minneapolis.
tho option market wus naturally affected
Thursday tho Prico Current' estimato
of 80,000,000 bushels less wheat in farm
ers hands this year than last, caused a
bulge , to COaC for Chicago May wheat;
but a later telegram from tho editor
giving dollnito ligurcB und naming l.'tO,-
000,000 bushels as his estimato of pres
ent stocks in farmers hands created
some ro-uction. Assuming this
cstimuto is correct aud that our
exports will go on about tho
presont rato, and milking customary
ullowunco for seed wo should havo
about 03,000,000 bushels in tho visible
and in farmorB hands on July 1. This
docs not mean famine, but it is it small
quantity and would justify good, fair
prices. Tho now export business has
been light but thoro is it hotter tone to
cublos. Clearances havo been good and
that, und tho milling demand, give
promiso of a larger decrcaso in tho
visiblo this woek. Tho last six months
havo been a timo of accumulation und
wo havo now, it seems, fuirly entered on it
period of distribution und wo look for a
market with a distinctly advancing
Corn Thoro is no change in tho corn
situation und wo soo nothing to advance
pricoB unless wo should got u strong
wheutXmarkot und corn gain something
in sympathy.
Oats, seem to us to bo to high relatively
as cotnpured with wheat or corn.
Provisions Wo said last week that
wo thought tho genoral courso would bo
downward. Thoy havo fallen some
what during tho week but wo look to soo
them reach considerably lower figures.

ISpeclitl correspondence.! Tho agony
displayed by congress in Its attempt to
dliqHwo of tho tarlll', tho Hawaiian nnd
tho silver questions has been likened to
that of it bou-coiiHtrlctor, In trying to
swallow and digest its victim the or
gunitmi is thrown into a spasm of bcoiii
ing insensibility, so great In fact, thut
at times It seems us if tho effort of
nature to do Its work would fail, but
just as tho victim Is generally completely
digested, so it is believed that congress
will ultimately pars thu Wilson hill in
a :nodilled form, and nlno tho seignior

It has lccii remarked that "the tarlll'
hill will remain in comparative seclu
sion during lent." Tho somite finance
committee has taken much mora timo
for its consideration than was promised,
und although material modifications
havo been made giving more protection
to tho constituents of this or that demo
cratic senator whose vote is Decennary,
no consideration hits 1cen shown repub
licans. Tho measure as it eumo from
tho houso bus lieen characterized as an
extreme sectional ono, protecting the
products of southern farmers; placing
all tho products of farmers on tho free
list, and reducing the protection accord
cd northern manufacturers presumably
in favor of southern buyers, while It Is
pro-oscd to mnko up the deficit by a
tax on northern incomes. An incrcaso
of tho whisky tax is strenuously resisted
bccuiiHO that is a southern product.
The manner in which Abrnni S.
Hewitt touched up the southern leaders
In congress at the banquet of tho south
ern society in New York on Washing
ton's birthday, raised a storm of in
dignation hero which has not yet sub
sided. The speech is explained in var
ious wayi; ho is called a -pessimist and
all tluiti'lmt the fact remains' that it is
tho small modicum of truth in the utter
ance that hurts.
It is currently talked about tho enpi
tol that tho democratic party ban no
statesmen among its leaders. Coming
into power as it did on tho tidal wave of
two years ago, when everybody wob pre
dicting the early demiso of the republi
can, or as it was sarcastically termed,
tho "g. o. p.," tho party, if it had been
dominated by broad statesmanship,
able to look beyond sectionalism anil
party prejudice, and act for tho best in
terests of tho country, might have en
compassed somo such result as was pre
dicted. What bus been tho remilt7
Time bus shown that tho democratic
politicians are of the hoi -house variety
thoy have been nurtured in such con
fined and close quarters, that in their
first experience in tho world, their
range of vision is so contracted by prior
training that really they know not
which way to turn. It Ib tho hot-house
politician of no public experience who
lias been coupled with the responsibility
incidental to power and authority thut
is causing all the trouble.
Ono of tio. troubles witli the ''g. o.
p." In 1802 was that it had run out of
campaign material. The solo aim of the
present administration seems to bo to
"1111 tho aching void." That this pur
pose is being rapidly accomplished, wit
ness tho republican triumphs of 1803,
and recently in Pennsylvania, w hero a
republican majority of 180,000 was cast,
with tho state administration in thu
hands of tho democrats.
Tho only purposo that can bo sub

Mr. Carfislo will huvo to sell moro bonds,
and thiB measure is in effect forcing u
loan to tho government without inter
est. Tho term "solgnlorago" is an en
ticing one, but in reality it lias no ma
terial substance ; it stands for nothing
but tho difference between tho tictuiil
and tin coinage value of tho silver stored
in the treasury, o. g., if the silver in u
dollar is worth 05 cents, then tho seign
iorage on that dollar Is 35 conts an
obligation of the government. Thu
Holgniomgo projositioii does not con
template tho purchase of silver; it can
not help tho silver states, much as that
help is needed; It means notljiug moro
than tho issue by thu government of
$50,000,000 worth of fiat money. Tho
democratic party has always hud strong
fiat tendencies. Mr, Bryan is strongly
in favor of thu seigniorage bill,

(Written for Tim Couiill-.K,)
Thu necessity for reform In tho conduct
of municipal affairs In npparont to every
thoughtful ultien. It Is notorious that
in almost every oily In tho United Stilted ,
jnunh'lpiit governments have Imen ex- '
reed I ugly extravagant, and In most
canes full of corruption. Bo trim Irt this,
and no well established are unhunlncFB
like methods, that thoughtful cltlr.enn
seo little hope of Immediate relief. True,
thu ptihllu has been aroused for it short
time, and somo changes for tho bettor
have Imjoii miido ; on tho wholo there
bun doubtless been Homo permanent ad
vance, hut thu task of securing thu con
duct of city affairs, In tho careful, and,
Judicious milliner in which good business
men maiiago their own affairs, will not
ho accomplished during this generation,
If present appearances aro Indicative of
thu future.
t t t
It in all vory well to say that tho law
abiding voters catt, by going to tho)olls,
soon work n permanent reform, Tho
greatest good could bo accomplished if
overy honest man wero to vote only for
honest men. The dlfllculty is to know
who are honest. There Is it deep seated
dlfllculty about tho management of pub
lic affairs; one wulch cannot ho removed
t t t
Lincoln has probably had somo venal
aldermen. At least the city seems' to
huvo gotten so far In debt that there Is
no prospect of paying out, and unless a
halt In called somo where It will bo im
imBslblo to oven pay thu Interest. That
all this vast sum has been carefully ut.d
scrupulously Invested cannot bo asserted
by any ono. Meantime this city hnH
had many honest aldermen; men who
have performed their duty In n conscien
tious manner. Vet well known citizens
havo Imeli elected to that office, and
have found themselves no hemmed in by
circumstances, that it him been aluioHt
Impossible to do what they really, In
llovcd to he tho right thing.
t t t
Two difllculllea rise boforu overy man
who accepts a trust of this sort. To
commence with, he in ulivo to tho neces
sity of doing tho best ho can for himself.
A measure Is proposed that will help '
him directly or indirectly in his busi
ness, if it Is passed. Wuro ho entirely
free from this personal Interest ho would
oppose tho measure, lie can see no
great harm in it, though it may cost the
city a few thousand. It will probably
go through any way, ho reasons, so ho
adds his otu in its favor.
Men go into council with honest in
tentions. They find, however that if
thoy will support certain measures, or
oppose certain measures, they will in
some way derive an advantage, either in
u business or a political way. Pressure
is brought to bear upon them from all
sides, and from being perfectly honest
they gradually yield, and supitort meas
ures they had no intention of supporting.
t t t
Again, men are occasionally sent to
tho council who really havo hud no oli
tlcal aspirations. Thoy immediately
breathe a new and tainted atmosphere.
It soon occurs to them that thoy might
use the present office as a stopping stone
toward something bettor. From tho
timo tho idea enters their bruin, they
train with politician. Thoy gradually
adopt political methods, and are soon in
the swim. From being men to be thor
oughly trtifllcd, they allow themselves,
to do thingy which are a little question
able. A little observation anil rullci'Mr'Kt
will convinco any ono of thu , ,uhY
theMj propositions i( eveiy
man who swerved from the rivmct puth
In his official capacity, in thft least de
gree, understood that ho cottjd not bo
returned to ottho, and that lib .J)dJU
met with condemnation at the hulnVii '!
all respectable citizens, a long step in
the right direction would bo taken.
What wuwapt in city government is a
moro honsitivu conscience, and a man
who will bo nioio chary of doing things
for tho city than ho would lw of doing
tilings for himself.
