Striking feature. It was tried at BIs-

thirty shots in 'the minute, with 28
hits, of which 17 were bull's-eyes.
The rifle is said to be vastly superior
to either the Lee-Metford or the Mau
ser in strength, efficiency and simpli
city of construction, while it is 35 per
cent cheaper to manufacture and Is one
and one-fourth pounds lighter than the
present Lee-Metford rifle. It has been
strongly recommended by Lord
Charles Beresford and there Is little
doubt that it will be introduced into
the British army at the end of the

was admitted to the union. Neither
is there any excuse for this large defi
ciency. The last legislature was lib
eral in its appropriations, and, while
it did not appropriate the large amount
demanded by the head of the various
state institutions for the simple reason
that it would have imposed a hardship
on taxpayers, it appropriated an
amount which, had the institutions
been honestly and economically man
aged, would have been abundantly suf
ficient."
That's what Thunder Maker Harri
son says. The records show different
It may be stated right here that the
deficiency claims incurred in the main
tenance of the various state institu
tions will not reach one-fourth of $100,-
000, and the first statement can safely
be branded as a lie.
It may not be amiss to say that dif
ferent legislatures adopt different
methods of making appropriations to
cover deficiencies, and it was alwajs i
favorite trick of republican lcgisla-
tures to put deficiency claims in with
the miscellaneous claims bill to hide
them. Deficiency claims which appear
on the face of the records are as fol
lows:
Allowed by the legislature of
1891. $ 9,000 00
Allowed by the legislature of
1893 4,901
Allowed by the legislature of
1895 11,177
Allowed by the legislature of
1897 15,798
Allowed by the legislature of
1899 13.723
The principal item of deficiency
00

in
1897 was S12.548.17, incurred by Com
mandant Culvet of the soldiers home at
Milford.
Now, it should be understood that
legislatures have a trick ox dividing up
the appropriation of an institution into
as many as twenty or twenty-five little
funds, jeach one for a specific purpose.
If the fund for fuel and lights becomes
exhausted, coal, etc, cannot be paid
for out of the fund for board and
clothing, even though that fund may
have tei thousand dollars more in it
than will be needed, and the result is
a deficiency against the fuel aud lights
fund to be met by the next legislature,
while a portion of the boaid and cloth
ing fund lapses into the state treasury.
Under fusion government the unused
balances have always more than cov
ered the amount of deficiency claims.
a fact our republican friends never
mention.
Referring to the auditor's books, the
following is a true statement regard
ing the institutions mentioned iu the
"boiler. plate" article:
Normal school at Peru: Here the
fuel and lights appropriation is ex
hausted. It was only $3,000. although
the fusion legislature gave $4,000, or
$1,000 more for that purpose. A small
deficiency vill be the result of repub
lican parsimony toward this educa
tional institution. The lectures fund
($200) and that for advertising supplies
($250) are also exhausted, but there will
probably be no further indebtedness
incurred in these lines.
Institute for Blind at Nebraska City:
N,ot one of the funds for current ex
penses or salaries is exhausted. The
'thunder-maker" simply lied, that's
all.
Fish Hatchery at South Bend: The
necessary labor fund here is exhausted.
It was only $1,000 in 1898 as against
$2,000 in 1897. Another case of nig
gardliness by the republican legisla
ture, and goes to show how well that
party loves the laborer.
Soldiers' and Sailors' Home at Mil
ford: The employes wages fund of
$1,500 is exhausted, but none of the
other current expense funds are. There
will be a small deficiency in the main
tenance and clothing fund; it was only
53,000 as against $7,500 in 197, yet the
population there 5 per cent greater.
Soldiers' and Sailors' Home at Grand
Island: Here again republican parsi
mony struck a blow at a state institu
tion. With all their great professions
of love for the old soldier, when it
comes to acting1 the republicans give
him the worst end of it every time.
On May 31, 1900, there were 298 in
mates of this home, yet during- the
biennium of 1S97-8 the average popu
lation was only 203. . Notwithstanding
it was well known that the population
at this home would increase consider
ably, the legislature of 1899 appropri
ated only $8,000 for fuel and lights,
$1,500 for drugs and instruments, $500
for stock and implements exactly the
same as the legislature of 1897 had ap
propriated. These funds are exhaust
ed and deficiencies will be incurred.
for the fusion administration has no
notion of allowing the old soldiers to
colonial policy, great combinatijna of
corporate wealth and a centtalised
government. Tbe other party wots
a continuance of the plain and JttJ
government of oar fa&ere, ptt!s ex
penditures limited to the actsml -aeoes-sities
of the government, -tarUZ taxa
tion for public purposes only, an army
for defense and not for eonqaed, com
petition in business, free from saoaop
olistic combinations.
No one needs to be tcIJ watch of the
parties favors- large standing armies
and the other things -pertaining to an
imperial establishment, and which a
freeze this winter simply because a re- J
publican legislature was too stingy to
give them sufficient money to buy fuel.
Institute for Feeble-Minded Youth
at Beatrice: Three little funds, ag
gregating $900, are exhausted! All the
other funds have ample balances, part
of which will probably lapse the first
of next April.
Hospital for the Insane at Norfolk:
Here again the republicans got iu their
work on the fuel and light fund. In
1897 $12. OO0 was appropriated for that
purpose, and it proved to be hardly
enough. An additional wing was com
pleted in 1808 and the population has
increased nearly sixty, yet the republi
legislature of 1899 gave only $12,000
for fuel and lights. The fund is not
yet exhausted but it will be inadequate
to provide fuel and lights until March
31, 1901.
Hospital for Insane at Lincoln; On
ly the "paints and oil fund ($.100) ex
hausted. Probably not a cent of
deficiency will be incurred, yet the
"thunder-maker" includes it in his list.
Industrial School for Itoys at Kear
ney: Not a fund exhausted. Score
another lie for the boiler-plate.
Now, what do you think of that? ,
Do you care to know the real reason '.
why there will be any deficiencies
whatever? It need not take long to
convince you. During the campaign
of 1S9S the fusionists 6howed by in
controvertible proof that they had suc
ceeded in maintaining the unfortu
nate wards of the state at a greatly
reduced cost to the taxpayers, and had
rendered better service than ever be
fore. This so incensed the republican
legislators that they made a deter
mined effort to give the fusion admin
istration a "black eye" if possible by
making inadequate appropriations lor
the state institutions. At nearly every
place a new building or two had been
erected, thereby necessitating more
fuel and light. By copying the appro
priations of 1897, the legislature of
1899 could cripple nearly every state
institution by making a shortage in
the fuel and lights fund, because the
necessity for more fuel and lights was
present in nearly every institution. It
will be noted that probable deficiencies
nearly all come under this head.
The following table shows the ag
gregate amount appropriated for all
the state institutions (penal and char
itable), excluding the amount for new
buildings and permaucnt improve
ments, made by different legislatures,
together with the average number of
inmates durine each biennial period,
and the amount per capita allowed fox
the maintenance of eacfi inmate.

Does that look as though "the last
legislature was liberal in its appropria
tions?" Only $15,000 greater than in
1697 to maintain 320 additional in
mates. The fusionists have accom
plished wonders in reducing the cost
of managing state institutions, out
there is a limit to all things. Bed
rock was reached in 1S9S, when the av
erage per capita cost oi maintaining
an inmate of a state institution was
only $153. It cost $155.(52 in 1S97 ana
S14S.1S for eleven months in 1890, in
which year the fiscal period was made
to end November 30 instead of Decern-'

be reached. The 1S99 appropriations
were niggardly and that's about all
that can be 6aid for them so far as
concerns the maintenance of state in
stitutions; but the republican legisla
ture had no qualms about appropriat
ing money to pay some hoary-headed
claims of doubtful merit. That there
should be some deficiency claims to be
paid by the legislature of 1901 is not
to be wondered at, in view of the fig
ures above; in fact, the republican
legislature intended that there should
be such. But it is a monstrous false
hood to say they will reach $100,000.
A Correction.
In our article published recently,
"Call on Bed Bugs," one sentence rean:
"Now, Poynter may not be a consis
tent strong; man. Among a certain set
of people, but out among the farmers
he is almost idolized, and when that
portion of Nebraska speaks you'll find
that they are more interested in those
questions affecting their interest than
they are in unproved cases of miscon
duct and mismanagement of state in
stitutions." We readily plead guilty to poor proof
reading; in this instance. The way
the article rras written in copy was as

New York Gets New One.
The directors of the Continental Na
tional bank of Chicago have voted
unanimously in favor of Increasing the
capital stock of $1,000,000, making It
S3.000.000. Three of Chicago's oldest
and largest banking Institutions are to
be consolidated. The Corn Exchange
National, the American National and
the Northwestern National are to pool
Usues and reorganize under the char
ter of the Corn Exchange, retaining its
title. President Ernest A. Hamlll, of
the Corn Exchange bank, wll' be pres
ident of the consolidated corporation.
The new Corn Exchange National bank
will have a capital 6tock of 12.000.000.
a surplus of $1,000,000 and undivided
profits of $500,000. The Federal Na
tional bank of New York city is the
proposed title -of an institution for
which the application has been approv
ed by Acting Comptroller Kane. The
proposed capital is $500,000, and the
responsible applicant who has con
ducted the correspondence Is Joseph T.
Hall, the real estate man at 35 Nas
sau street. The other four Incorpora
tors required by law are Walter D.
Johnson, broker; Charles A. O'Dono
hue. merchant; Percy B. O'Sulllvan.
and Jason C. Moore. It Is announced
that the United States treasury's third
call for $5,000,000 from government de
positories will be the last. The remain
ing $10,000,000 needed for the retire
ment of the $25,000,000 old 2 per cent
bonds. It Is stated, will be made up
from the growing treasury surplus.
The three calls have been prorated
among the banks all over the coun
try having government deposits, and
the eight depositaries in Philadelphia,
after responding to the last call, which
was payable July 16, contributed
something like $750,000 In all.
BEAUTIFUL FEET RARE.
Present-Day Footwear Distort tb
ie Ex-
t remit lea Abominably.
A man who denies that he is pre
judiced, but claims that he is a good
judge of feminine beauty, declares
that there is scarcely a beautiful foot
to be found among the women of to
day. The high heels, the exaggerated
curve at the ball of the foot, the stiff
heel stays and the pointed toes, he de
clares, have distorted the foot in a
painful and ugly manner. The ankles
are misshapen. In some cases the
bones are enlarged until they bulge
out so that every bone is perceptible.
The weight of the body thrown upon
the toes has caused them to spread
out. Crowded into pointed toes, they
stick up in clusters of knotty corns.
The foot should be as shapely as the
hand. Footwear should fit as a glove
fits the hand. The perfect foot is
slender, with an arched instep and toes
that lie smoothly and easily. The first
step toward acquiring a pretty foot is
to wear shoes that fit it comfortably.
The next is to take exercises that will
render ,he toes strong and supple. Be-"
gin by spreading out the toes to the
utmost extent; then hold four toes still
and attempt to move the remaining
one. Every toe should be straigbter
and shorter than the next one and the
arch should be shapely and pliant. The
feminine foot of today renders a grace
ful carriage an impossibility. And all
because Dame Fashion has decreed
that a short, high-heeled, pointed-toe
shoe is the correct thing in dressy
footgear, forgetting that there never
was a human loot duiii mat way.
Does Electricity Kill Trees?
New Haven (Conn.) Special to Phil
adelphia Inquirer: Indignant citizens
who desire to save the noble elms that
are the pride of New Haven have
threatened to bring suit against the
trolley car companies of the city for
alleged damages to' the trees. The as
sertion is made that the trolley wires
charged with electricity are in some
streets held in place by connecting
wires fastened to the trees, and that
charges of electric fluid are sent into
the trees, which are thus killed. Tbe
trolley companies have sought to stave
off damage suits by an offer to test
the scientific correctness of these as
sertions. Permission has been obtained
from the department of public works
and police supervision assured for the
interesting experiment within the
week of charging the big tree in front
of City Hall with the full voltage of
the trolley system. If the tree dies
a score of suits will be filed by prop
erty owners, who have been compelled
to cnt down' trees, some of them 150
years oldince the trolley ran through
the avenues.
