THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT. May 7, 1896. BAGS AND THE TWO TAXES. A Special Tkaim McCormick Binders kn route from Christchcrch, "THE BEST FARM IN Till WORLD." Possibly there are many of the readers of tbe Independent wbo would be lotn to admit that the best farm in the world can not be found in some parts of the United States and it is just possible that the particular spot of ground en titled to this eminent distinction would be variously designated according to the individual views of the particular reader. However we may state in all fairness, and certainly without desire to belittle our American agriculturists and even granting them the opportunity to de- iona memseives against me cnnric ui not being the owners of the "best farm in the world" that this title has for some time been held by what is known as thj world-famed Longbeach Estate, and that is located in New Zclnnd. Early in, February the harvest season was at its full height at Longbeach, and the enterprising Weekly l'ress published at Cliristchurch, sent a special representative with instructions to furnish the paper with a replete report of the interesting event, as dis closed by the operations upon this re nowned estate. "Longbranch," says the Press "is a busy place at almost all times of the year, and particular ly so during harvest. Plowing, sow ing, and other operations occupy large numbers of men and horses, but they' are spread over several months of the year, whereas the climate of the ditrict brings the crops to maturity within a period of less than a month, and in that space of time the grain must be secured. Small farmers, con tractors, and others many from the immediate vicinity, others from all parts of Canterbury and some as far as Qtago find work at Longbeach dur T HAIL, CYCLONE. FIRE. S.

I. ing this busy time and useful harvest hands flock thither sure of a job. Employment at Longbeach baa always been sought after, there being no bet Zeland tnan Mr. John Grigg, the owner of the estate, and it can be said tnai no empiujer has better workers whether permanent rs. a,,i Mmv under both categor- ies have worked for him for a great number of seasons, and many snug farms and homes in various parts of founded bv the earn ings at Longbeach." The Press repre sentative was impressed with tho long rrvirmlr.k harvesters and bind ers at work in the various paddocks, "there being as many as seventy reup ers and binders, and a corresponding number of drays, with upwards of 1,000 horses, and quite an army of men.

THE TELEPHONE EXCHANGE. Its Wonderful Efficiency Under the Present Management. There is an institution in Lincoln that the people should be proud; of., It is the present telephone exchange. With in the last year the telephone company have built an elegant 25.000 building on South Thirteenth street for their exclusive use. There is not a building in the city that will compare with this one in durability, constrnction, or elegance of finish. They have spared no expense in securing the latest and best improve ments to make tbe service equal to any in the country. A visit to the central office will convince the most skeptical that the company and especially the manager, Mr. Eich, have much to be proud of. There is not a more busy place in the city than the central office during business hours. Everything is quiet and orderly, moving with speed and accuracy only possible with tne most perfect system and organization. To describe the workings in detail would require many times the space we can give to this article, vve can only sug gest that when showing your friends through the city you do not fail to take them to the central office. They will see more of real interest in that building than in any other in or about Lincoln. THE FIGHT IN OREGON. Populists will Carry Oregon ; in June. Gen. Weaver tells us th at there every reason to believe that the Popu lists will carry Oregon at tbe election on the first Monday of June next He will be assisted in the canvass by J. H. Davis of Texas, (" Cyclone Davie"), J. R. Sov- erign, Master Workman of the K. of L.; W. Whitehead, of New Jersey, late Na tional Lecturer of the Grange, Colonel McDowell, of Tennessee, and Thomas V. Cator, of California: besides a host of local talent. Gen. Weaver was in Ore gon recently. He says the Republican party is torn to peices upon the silver question. The old party press has sup pressed all information upon thesubject; but the struggle between the two fac tions of Republicans has amounted almost to a state of war. At the pri maries in Portland pistols were drawn, men were knocked downby the score,, the police appeared with level guns. The gold-bugs carried the. day; then tho fight was transferred to the county convention, intensified ten fold. Each side put up a candidate for chairman; the crowd surged onto the nlatform. both prospective chairmen were knocked down and kicked; the most prominent men in the party were piled up like cord wood, and the body of , the hall was Bedlam-let-loose. . It is, of course, impossible that an organization thus torn to peices can defeat the united Populist. Hence vic tory is certain for the Peoples Party. The cry is'union." The free-silver Dem ocrats and the free-silver Republicans are uniting with our people. This is good news. But our readers can realize the state of slavery we are in under the control of the Associate Press organization, when not a particle of all this important news is permitted to reach us. Gen. Weaver is sanguine that the unit edPopulist and Free-Silverites will sweep th nation in November next. Ignatius Donnelly. ; Delinquent aabsoribert mutt pay up, at mat lr aiMfr Sometimes A Dog Knows More Than A Man. Near tbe summit of a hill, on a Dakota farm, two foxes once had their den. One day th farmer's dog "Rags" discovered one of them and gave chase. Round and round the bill they ran until the fox be came tired, then be dodged into a path of high weeds where his mate lay concealed. She then ran ont and led "Rags" over the track while her mate rested. They continued to fool the dog in this way until he went home thoroughly disgusted. The next day "Rags" returned and the same plan waa pursued. This process was continued all summer, until "Rags" was entirely worn out, and so poor that he could hardly crawl. At last "Rags" concluded he wonld give them one more trial. When be neared the mound he saw a Erairie fire sweeping across the hill; as it urned the patch of weeds both foxes were driven out, and he dicovered how he had been deceived. He went home, saying to himself: "I can't catch both of them alone, but I'll get the neighbor's dogs to join me and thea they can't get away." For thirty years the MoneyPower has been playing the "two foxes" act on the voters. They first get them to chase the fox "Protection," until that issue is tired out. Then they let it rest and "Tariff Reform" dodges out of the grass and the voters chose that iesue. The voters have chased these two foxes until they are as hungry and poor as "Rags." The prairie fire of "financial reform" has now driven the foxes out of the grass, but whether the voters will be as wise as he, and get their neighbors to combinr and catch both of them at the same time, by overthrowing the Money Power in 1896, is an open question. Sometimes a dog is moresagacious than a man. ' Snap shots at factB m Fi' uance." Copyright, 1895. IT TAKES COURAGE. "All nations are brave in their own way. Massive battalions, thousands strong, will march to death midst flash ing bayonets and screaming shells not a man dropping out of his place. But the courage that faces the sneer of fash ion, the scorn of power, the scowl of altered friendship, the proud man s con tumely, and the insolence of office this is the courage that belongs alone to souls touched to fine issues," and this is the kind of courage it takes to make a populist. There are three millions of them bow. There will be six millions by- next JNovetnber. intelligent Americans are tne bravest people on earth. POPULIST STATE CONVENTION.

' it is also recommended that the cre dentials from each county be handed in to the state central committee, prior to the meeting of the state convention, so that a full list of delegates can be made out and the tedious delay occasioned by a committee on credentials avoided. It is also recommended, in accordance with a resolution passed by the state central committee, that in the state con vention, the following plan of selecting delegates to the national convention be adopted: That nine delegates and nine alternates be selected from each con gressional district by the delegates present; and that three delegates and three alternates be elected at large. It is urgently requested that every member of the party, who possibly can do so, attend the primaries, so that those selected as delegates may represent the wishes of the entire party. Every voter in Nebraska, who favors an American system of finance and is opposed to the gold standard, bond issuing policy of the present administra tion; who favors the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at 16 tol: who favors reform fn our systems of money, land and transportation; who favors more economical administration of national and state governments; who is opposed to the farther domination of corporations in our legislation; who be lieves that the government should be brought closer to the people; and finally, who is ready to cast aside prejudice and vote for the common prosperity of all; every such voter is cordially invited to participate in our primaries and assist in the selection of our delegates. By order of the state central com mittee. , J. A. Edokrton, F. D. Eager, Chairman. Sec'v. The Safe Store There is'nt a store in the whole country that sells cloth ing as "THE NEBRASKA" does.
