It is stated on reliable authority that

one object of the war, that of saving the
starving Cubans, will never be accom

Last week. we gave a statement of our
trade with Spain. There never was
enough of It to brag about, add it lias
been growing less with every year. The
latest figures of our Cuban trade possess
more interest. In 1893 our total trade
with Cuba amounted to 102,OO0,0OO.
For the present fiscal year it is lets than
120,000,000. In 181)4 we imported two
billion pounds of sugar from Cuba. The
past year it is less than one-fourth that
amount. In 1800 we sold 15,000,000
worth of lard in Cuba the present year
none. We neut 0,000,000 pounds of
hnra and 4,000,000 of bacon to Cuba
every year until the present. In pota

our shipments formerly reached near
12,000,000. Now, hat we send Is

I in tne behavior of many oi tne varieties

Some varieties of peaches seem to remain
more perfectly dormant during the win
ter than others, with the result that
tneir buds cau withstand a lower range

varieties of that class usually perish

below zero, it is found thnt other varie-
ties may ordinarily stand !iO below, and
sometimes degrees below zero.
Among the varieties which an expe-
rionce of sixteen years demonstrated to
be among the more reliable are Alexan-
der, Early ill vere, Hale's Early, Coolodge

It is a matter of profoitud regret that
the directory of the Trans-MlsHisslppI
Exposition at Omaha have thorn
selves applied for a saloon license and
propose to soli liquor on the grounds
this summer - for what there is to be
mado out of jt.
There are. al kinds of vlewe on the
question of liquor.selling held by the
people of the state of Nebraska. There
who believe that liquor will be sold any
way and the best way Is to secure, iW-
P"8 irom us snie and some measure ol
regulation to prevent In part the evils
that arise from the use of liquor' and
there are those who would take the
baiter off and leave Its sale as free as
that of sugar or kerosone.
liut when it comes to the sale of liquor
on the grounds of either state or county
fairs, the great mujority of the people
of Nebraska are practically of one opin
ion, that it is no place for it and they
have put their opinion on record in the
statutes of Nebraska (section 18, chap
ter 2, Art. 1, compiled statutes of 1807)
as follows:
"No person shall be permitted to sell
Intoxicating liquors, wine or beer of any
kind, dr be engaged ln any gambling, or
other game of chance or horse racing,
enuer tnsiue the euciosure where any
state, district, or county agricultural
society fair is being held, or within forty
rods thereof, during the times of holding
such fair; and any person found guilty
of any of the offenses herein enumerated,
shall be fined in a sum not less than five
nor moro than fifty dollars for every
suchffense. That upon filing
proof witn the State Treasurer of a vio
lation of this section inside the inclosure
of any such fair, the amount of money
appropriated shall be withheld for the
current year, except if paid, then ft shall
be withheld from any money appropri
ated for the ensuing year."
Now ths state fair of Nebraska for the
year 1808 has been given up and con
solidated with the Trnns-MiseiHeippi
Kx position. So have many county fairs,
If there is any good reason why liquor
selling shouldbe kept)off the grounds at
state fairs and at county fairs on no
count of the disorder and drunkenness
that arise, there is certaiuly just asgood
reasou why it should be kept off the
Trans-Mississippi Imposition. Ths vast
majority of Nebraska people both for
elgu und native born, of all religions nnd
all parlies, are perfectly sutistled alt'i
the vii'IuhIoii of liquor from state fair
grouuds. They know there is gmtd
reasou lor keeping-it oft the grouuds of
0. A. It. encampments aud all great

Ily the casting vote of Senator Jones
of Nevada, the 500,000,000 bond tail
to the war revenue bill was cut off in the
senate finance committee room and the
bill reported to the senute Monday of
this week.
It is a war revenue bill. Its provis

went to the front iu 1801 of the war rev
enue bills of 1H01 and 1802 with one
notable excretion there is no provision
for an income tax such its produce over
1300,000,000 of the money that put
down tho greut rebellion. No income
tax since Judgo Shims of tho supreme
court saw the sooth sayers und changed
his mind over night. This bill then
skips over the big untaxed incomes of
the mlllionnires.but It goes after theatre
tickets, bowling alleys, bnuk checks
chewing gum aud paregoric with an
unrelenting hand. It exiiects to raise
1101,407,000 extra revenue in the next

A four weeks' discussion has com
monced in the senate upon the qtu-s-tion
how to raise the revenue and not
tax tho rich.
Now Sruin 1m ready to give her de

was not ho with our rebellion. Wo
guve the south the hiiiiih government

for knocked out, that was
slavery. Everybody now Is glad of it.
Why call him Itear Admiral Dewey?
UHler cull him head admiral. He is
ahead now and we doubt whether he
ever will fall behind.
Why quest Ion taking ohurgo of
Culm, Porto Klco and Hie Philippine
Islands until the bona tide residents
can urninge a government of their
own and start a republic? Of course
we iimst fill the olllce of protectorate
until I lie new government Is tinder
way. If we thought best we oould give
theiii such a government us England
give Cuiiudu. There Is no hunkering
for a change of government over
Why do not McKlnley end Hiuiipwm
direct nil their guns toward Cuba and
the Philippines, hold Unit territory
feed the starving nnd wait for the
(Spanish fleet to show up? Jf they
can do no more they can sail along
the const of Culm In an iron clod and
throw oil' a few Isigs of eniekers to
the sturviug women tiiul children.
Why waste any more coal or steam in
trying to Und the 8sinlurds? Why
not go about Ihe Job freeing Cuba,
which we sturlcd out to do?
The wnr with rqsiln will not only
settle the Ciibnii question, but it will
settle the feeling of unrest among
our own people anil It will ulso blot
out the remaining sectional feeling

In limit way. There is an underlying
cause or unrest uiiii mat cause must
be removed before our people will ever
settle down in quiet. J lie grout doct
rine or all good for all must take tho
place of the prevailing (hsftrlne of to
day which is the greatest gixsl for the
millionaire and let tho common scrubs
go to grass. Money rules this fHfrplu
in every department. Our elections
are carried by money, Why did Ifon
tia use millions In the central western
stafi-s while hardly a dollar wus used
east of the Alleghany ran go 7 Our
law makers make laws for those who
will pay them the most money, In
whose interest was silver stricken
down and who paid John Sherman
for bossing the. Job?! In whose inter

Very year. The question in should

rnment or should the liner tmv most
of llie taxes for that itiii'ixwie? Htrict
iiKtice to all elasMes Is the only thing
that will aettle the unrest manifest in
the American people.
The thing for the common ix-oplo to
fight now is the Issue of Isolds. A
lillion of Isinds will stir up the unrest
of the American people as 'It was never
stirred Is-fore. There Is no need for
any more IhuiiIm for the millionaires
to speculate on. Issue greenbacks,
and coin silver is the thing to do. Our
hope is In the senate alone. If tho
senators fail us now we may n well
give the whole thing 1o the plutocrat
und Is1 done with it. .
