A RICH TERRITORY.
Do we realize the wonderful resources
of the great Missouri valley? Do we
realize that the farm production of the
United States last year amounted to
about ?7,750,(X)0,(MI0? Do we realize
that we are in the very heart of this
immense production? Do we realize
that we are in the center of the richest
portipn of this great wealth producing
For l'.Hlrt Nebraska stands third in the
list of corn producing states, according
to the government crop estimate. The
final outcome on this crop for our state
was really surprising, all things con
sidered; and the total production realiz
ed must stand as a further convincing
proof, if such were needed, of the im
mense possibilities of Nebraska farm
land. Through tribulation, our pro
ducers have come to most consoling
realization. They have emerged entire
ly from the staggering wave of dis
couragement that hit them in '1)1. And
that is saying much when the far-spread
advertisement of that disastrous year
is kept in mind.
Nebraska today is indeed coming into
her own! She has "arrived" to stay.
Counting in yesterday's babies and
today's transients, the total poplation
within her borders can hardly exceed
1, 250,000. Yet her wealth in principal
crops and live stock this blessed year
of Our Lord will total $:145,:1G5,818.
This means that for every man,
woman and child in Nebraska for the
year 1008 the yield from corn, wheat,
oats, barley, rye, alfalfa, hay, speltz
and potatoes, and horses, mules, cattle,
hogs, and sheep alone would have about
Here Is Prosperity.
There still remains here and there an
isolat i calamity howling democratic
sheet shouting "we can't see any signs
of prosperity," and "where is your
prosperity now." Simultaneously with
one of these calamity howls, we read
in the press of the country that the
farmers were selling their corn at ti.r
cents per bushel and wheat at iH) cents
to a $1.00 per bushel. We confess that

bank clearings continue to climb right
on up toward new record marks, the
figure for May having reached a total
several millions above that of any pre
vious May since the establishment of
the clearing house. The volume of ex
changes amounted to $C1, 28(5,081.71, an
increase over the same month for 1!08
of $13, 07:1,205. 10.
But once in the history of the clear
ing house has the record for May been
exceeded. That was for March of this
year, when they reached a total of $71,
7G0.302. W5. March is always one of the
heaviest months of the year, as it
marks the period of farm mortgage
settlements and renewals.
The close of Jlast week showed the
following notable increases: For the
week, $ 1,5(17,081.00, 21.0 per cent; for
the month, $l:S,07:i,2!5.10, 21.1 percent;
for five months, $52,9H5,::ii;.l.",, 21.5 per
During but one month this year have
the clearings fallen below $50,000,000.
This was in February, always the small
month of the year. During three out
of the five months it has gone above
$('( I, (HH),000. The average for the five
months is just a shade below $(!0, 000,000
the total reaching $200,171,182.10. In
this connection it is interesting to note
that this amount is within $1(5,000,000
of being as much as the total for the
entire year l'.MM).
Following is the detailed report of
clearings since the first of the year for
this year and last.

Following is the five months' record
for foi'r years.
Known real estate transfers of Oma
ha property are $2,000,000 more for the
first five months of 1900 than for the
same months of 1908.
For the month of May the transfers
were $1,024,853, as against $725,572 for
the same month last year. As several
additions have been sold on the partial
payment plan and no deeds have gone
on record, the $1,024,853 by no means
represents the sales of the month.
May was the largest month in the
history of Omaha' in the building line
and the first five months of the current
year have been the largest five months
since the building inspector's office was

It is a more serious question than ap
pears on the surface. Suppose for ex
ample, that any two of the great pow
ers, for example, Germany and Great
Britian, should engage in a conflict of
arms, or that any one of these great
powers should go to war with any other
nation, what hardships it would work
against our foreign commerce. In
such a case, where would we get the
ships to transport our merchandise?
See what England's littl war with the
Hoers cost this country in the loss of
trade, although the Hoer nation was
without a single vessel of any kind.
