Barnum & Bailey to Exhibit
.There on Tuesday July 13.
tacle as well as in other departments of
the big show, yet never in its splendid
history of nearly half a century has it
displayed such extravagance as is
shown this year.
Never since the beginning of time
' has an amusenSent enterprise so tre
mendous in size been organized as this
one. Its magnitude is almost beyond
belief. AH America, together with
every foreign country, has been scoured
from end to end by agents of this big
show in search of novelties and the
result is a performance brim full of
sensational acts new to the circus
vrorld. In the big Barnum & Bailey
show are nearly 400 arenic stars, most
of whom are seen now for the first time,
A new sensation will be seen at every
performance in "JUPITER, the balloon
horse." This remarkable animal with
its fearless rider ascends to the dome
of the circus tent in a balloon and des
cends to the ground in a shower of fiie
works. Nearly 1,000 animal wonders
-are to be found in the big 108 cage
' menagerie. 8 herds of elephants, in
cluding one herd that actually plays
upon musical instruments in time and
tune. A group of giant giraffs,monster
trained hippopotamus, only living bi
horned rhinocros and hundreds of other
strange beasts. Barnum & Bailey's
big, new, free street parade Is the most
gorgeous processional display ever at
tempted in tha history of circus busi

ful length can only be believed in the
actual seeing. It is natural to expect
this big circus to lead all others in
' quality and quinity of its street spec-
Burkett is a Fighter.
A dispatch from Washington by the
Associated Press speaks as follows of
the attack made by Senator Burkettt
upon Senator Aldrich and the methods
of the Finance Committee:
"Indulging in a vigorous denuncia
tion' of the committee on finance
because of its change of front over
night on the subject of tobacco im
portations from the Philippines,
Senator Burkett staoding face to
face with Chairman Aldrich today
declared that its action looked to
him like a game of petty politics.
He characterized this action as an
effort to hang Senator LaFollette
in the air, and finally declared that
this event afforded senators a good
opportunity to vote a lack of confi
dence in the committee."
Senator Burkett's remarks came dur
ing the discussion over admitting to
bacco free from the Philippines. After
refusing to adopt an amendment of
fered by Senator LaFollette the finance
committee accepted an amendment
made by Senator Bulkeley calling for a
reduction more sweeping than the one
asked for by Senator LaFollette. It
was this action which arroused Senator
Burkett's ire. The incident served to
show even more plainly the bitter fight
that men Iiks Senator Burkett are mak
insr for true revision in opposition to
the Aldrich followers.

seventy-three years of age. She lived
for a time in Missouri from whence
the came to Nebraska. She was the
mother of ten children, five sons and
five daughters, and her husband also
survives her. Mrs. Carroll wa3i rev
erenced by all with whom she came in
contact and, eulogy aside, was a ,good
woman and true wife and mother, and
one of her characteristic traits was her
happy faculty of always seeing ' the
brighter side of life in preference to
the darker. The funeral was held
Monday, the twenty-first. i

For the second time within two
months the peculiar business methods
of the sugar trust (The American Re
fining Company,) have cost it a pretty
penny. In the first case the company
had to pay to the government 2, 1-3
million dollars because for ten years it
had been engaged in swindling the
government by the use of false scales.
In the second case the company made
an expensive compromise with a compet-!
itor who charged that it had succeeded
by a trick in preventing him from open
ing a refinery. The story of this case,
briefly stated, is as follows:
Mr. Adolph Segal in 1903 organized
the Pennsylvania Sugar Refining Co.,
for the purpose of competing with the
sugar trust. The company built in
Philadelphia one of the most complete
and well equipped sugar refineries in
the country. Before the refinery was
opened Mr. Segal found himself finan
cially involved, and borrowed 1 1-4 mil
lion dollars from Gustav E. Kissel. The
security for the loan consisted chiefly
of stock of the new refining company,
and with it went the condition that
during the term of the loan the holder
of the collateral should name the di
rectors of the company. Mr. Segal was
of course entirely ignorant of the fact
that the man who was doing him this
favor was n agent of the sugar trust.
Mr. Kissel and three clerks of the trust
were at once elected directors, and
voted that the new refinery should not
be opened. For six years this magnifi
cent plant has laid idle, and not a
pound of sugar has gone through its
macinery. As a result, Mr. SegaV this
independent refiner who had been duped
into falling under the control of the
trust, was financially ruined. His down
fall involved a real estate company in
Philadelphia, whose president there
upon committed suicide. Suit was
brought against the American Sugar
Refining Company, and just as the case
was going to the jury it was announced
that a settlement had been reached be
tween the trust and the Pennsylvania
The exact terms of the settlement
have not yet been made public, but it
is reported that the closing of that re
finery will cost the trust between 2 and
3 million dollars. The evidence in the
case is being investigated by the Attor
ney General, in order to ascertain if
if there is sufficient grounds for crim
inal prosecution under the Sherman
Anti-Trust Law. So the sugar trust
has twice in rapid succession been piU
loried before the world once in open
court and once by its agreement to a
settlement which is equivalent to a
confession of guilt. The rascality in
the hrst case was systematic aud long
continued, covering at least a decade,
and probably a much longer space of
time. But the second offense was more
despicable, for it consisted in ruining a
competitor under cover of an act of
friendship and assistance the loan of
the money necessary for the carrying
out of his business. It is this kind of
conduct which causes and in part justi
fie3 the widespread popular feeling
against monopolistic corporations, and
in a lesser degree, against all corporations.

Louis Born, a wealthy young f aimer
who owns a fine farm near Cullom was
in the city on business Saturday.
While here he closed a deal with his
brother George whereby he became the
owner of the 40 acres which the latter
bought the day before from ex-senator
S. L. Thomas.
This land joins his brother Henry's
on the east, and he in time will doubt
less become owner of the same. The
Born boys are all well-to-do and their
own efforts have caused success, as
e l :h had but a team, wagon and har

The youug men have always had to
pay as much rent as any stranger and
their success is only the reward of
honesty, industry and good management.
