THE OOTToliit FOR FARI-iERS
Winter Wheat in Excellent Condition, and
the Fruit Prospects Uninjured.
The past week lias been very cold,
averaging about 10 degrees below the
normal In the eastern half of the slate
and 4 degrees below in ttie western
half. The lowest temperatures were
recorded on the Kith, readings about
10 degrees below freezing being re
corded throughout the state.
No rain occurred during the week
except a trace in scattered localities.
The week has been an excellent one
for sowing spring grain, and this work
is nearly finished in all sections. The
early planted oats are coming up in
the counties along the southern bor
der of the state, l'lowing for corn lias
begun under favorable circumstances,
tho soil being sumeiently moist to
plow well except in some western coun
ties. In the eastern half of the state
winter wheat is in good condition and
no damage is reported from the dry
weather ot the week; in tho western
and southwestern sections, however,
much damage to winter wheat has re
sulted from the many weeks of dry
weather. The unusually low temper
ature of the Kith, which was the low
est on record during the last twenty
days of April in some localities, did
little if any damage; fruit buds wore
not far enough advanced to be harmed.
Potatoes are about all planted. Spring
grain, grass and gardens are starting
slowly because of the cold, dry condi
tions. A period of warm weathcr,with
rain, would be beneficial to all vegeta
tion. Let Kim Keep Up the Good Wor!(.

enough taxable property In the way of
mortgages, to much more than equal

Mr. K. E. Garner, representing the
Metropolitan Street Fair company of
Chicago, was in theclty Monday and
Tuesday for the purpose of making ar
rangements to hold a week's carnival
in this city. When the matter was
first submitted to Mavor Gering la-

a donation of $r0 to pay the expenses
or getting the company here, which
seemed very reasonable, and Hob
Mauzy and 11. A. Hates were named by
Mayor Gering as a committee to as

soliciting subscriptions, and ere the

Eighth Grade Excminctions.
Luring the past week lias occurred
the regular eighth grade examination
of the pupils of Cass county. County
.Superintendent Wortman tells us that
a larger number than ever before were
in on this examination. They were
held in six different towns in the
county and were conducted personally
oy the superintendent. Mr. Wortman
devoted the entire week to the matter
and examined 11.") pupils orally in the
subject of reading. All other branches
taken were in writing. As we under
stand it, the law authorizing these
examinations provides that such
pupils who pass satisfactorily will Re
ceive a diploma from the county su
perintendent which will admit them
into a high school without further ex
amination, thus bringing about a uni
form requirement throughout each
county for admittance into the various
hfgli schools. These examinations will
show what Is being done by our
teachers who have eighth grade pupils.
There is nothing more important than
thoroughness in the common branches
and this should be assured before stu

HAS HOT YET SHOWED UP
And the Citizens cf Greenwood Take II
for Granted Ks Is U Liable To.
Two weeks ago Fred Ech, a saloon
keeper at Greenwood, left the village
unceremoniously, hut, the citizens
thought nothing; of his so doing, hav
ing left his business to the care of an
other party. A week rolled around
and Fred falling to show up, not only
tho gentleman who was holding down
the business at the old stand, but
some of his creditors began to smell a
good sized rat, and began an investi
gation. It was soon learned that there
was '-a woman lu the case," and that
"trouble was brewing" on this score.
Not only this, but upon further inves
tigation it was found that numerous
citizens were "left to hold the sack"
for varioussums that he had borrowed,
and that the wholesale liquor houses
came in with claims for dill'erentsunis
amounting to hundreds of dollars.
After all the facts in the case came
to light those interested S'on decided
that Kch had gone for good, and his
place of business was taken possession
of by creditors to be closed out for
what it would bring. It is claimed
that lie owed the wholesale dealers
about $ii00, and that other debts would
make the sum run to over $1,000.
The Journal is informed that Kscli
always bore a very fair reputation and
did a good business in his line. In his
departure he leaves his bondsmen "in
the soup" also. He Is a single man,
and we understand the friends of the
woman whom lie lias left to suffer from
his perfidy will make a desperate cITort
to seek his whereabouts and have jus
tice take its revenge.

Editor Journal: I hope 1 shall not
be intruding by asking for a little
space In your valuable paper, as 1
should be pleased to offer a few re
marks anent the mcetingof tax-payers
at the court houso last week. This
meeting was called for tlic ostensible
purpose of securing a just and equita
ble return and valuation ot all property-cash,
personal and real in tills
city, and to prevent shirking by those
who have property in such shape so
that it can not be readily ascertained
by the assessor, etc., but the real pur
pose of the meeting was apparently
lost sight of, and the enforcement of
the "scavenger act" in this county was
the only thing up for discussion, a'
committee was even appointed for the
purpose of bringing the matter before
the county board, but 1 will make you
guess that it will never be heard of
Now, I have heard it intimated that
strong pressure was brought to bear
on the projectors of this meeting to
side track the purpose, by a class, as
usual, who desire to shirk their cart
of the tax burden as in the past, and
make a 'Tour Hush" of the new reve

permit him to go to tlic banks nnd
other kindred corporations receiving
deposits of money, to ascertain that
no "mistakes" occur In returning
amounts on deposit on the 1st, of
April, but it is nob tobcexDected that.
this will be done. There is just as
much liability to "error" In returning
cash for taxation as notes, judgments
and tax sales. The assessor should
not stop with the court house records,
but will he?
Now, Mr. Editor, this l:iv wnfl
framed and lobbied through tlic legis
lature by the banks, railroads and
other corporations, and I for one
would like to see it enforced to the
letter, and then if the good people of
this state want another republican

and pay the liddler. The class who do
the governing and consume the money
paid in taxes do not realize wlier the
money comes from as a rule. '
If all the property subject to taxa-
tlon In this city is listed at its proper
value, t lie tax rate should not be over
four or live per cent, Instead of ten or
eleven last year. As a matter of self-
defense each one should see that it Is
done, and then if the law is found to
be unjust and unreasonable possibly
the next legislature will correct It.

The New Revenue Law.
To the Editor of tlic Journal: As
the new revenue law Is the subject of
some discussion at the present time, I
should be pleased to call attention to
the unfairness of the provision thereof
relative to the listing of mortgages.
Where a mortgage is found in tlic
name of a local citizen It wilt be listed
for. "taxation, as well as the land it
covers, and to the extent of the mort
gage this will be double taxation.
However, this unfair provision will
apply only to the holders of mortgages
who reside in the county, and not to
the non-resident holder, life Insurance
loan and trust companies, and very
likely will not apply to any one resid
ing outside of tho county, as the law
docs not require the assessor to go be
yond the limits of the county on ex
peditions of "discovery." Of course,
this is as It should be, the large and
powerful interests should be protected
from taxation the same as our power
ful industries, called by our republi
can friends "infant Industries," should
be sheltered by a protective tariir.
This law goes after the small investor
within the county, but docs not touch
the loan, trust and I nsnrnnen mm.
panics beyond the borders of tho state
(and probably the county), and to that
extent places the local investor at a
disadvantage. Now the Inevitable re
sult will be that local capital will be
sent away from home to be invested
and local borrowers will be required to
get their loans from outside the statu.
Then how many of the mortgages will
pay laxes? to say the least, the law
Is very unfair, but it is nrnhahlv nrn.
sumptuous to expect fairness from tho
so.irce rrom which the law emanated.
It is pre-eminently a comoratlon
measure, but what else could be ex
pected from the legislature that en
acted it; I presume I shall be called
a "red liagger" or a "lippy populist"
lor caning attention to these thines.
but it matters little to me.
Yours truly, John M. Leyda.
