"Three great parties in Nebraska are

The people's Independent party

in urn me srate conventions were
neia suDsequent to the three great na-

was accomplished. The democrats were
given one place, attorney general, on
the state ticket, and presidential elec

lour democrats. In this campaij?n a

the campaign of 1900. "While state
matters enter somewhat Into the con
test in Nebraska, and the personality
of the nominees will cut some figure,
yet the feeling is growing every day
that this is an all-imporant prelimin
ary skirmish in the battle of 1900. The
silver question Is the same lively
corpse mat it was in 1896, In fact,
livelier, because many republicans who
followed the International bimetallism
will-o'-the-wisp then, see now how
they were duped; and the present con
dition of the backs of New York is
every day bringing the money question
more prominently before the people.
That comparatively new question, the
trusts, and the newer, but none the
less Important one, Imperialism, are
claiming a great share of the people's
attention. . . i
The fusion forces have a normal ma
jority of nearly 20,000 over the repub
licans with a full vote polled, or from
15,000 to 18,000 with an average vote
out' However, Governor Holcomb's
magnificent record as "the best govs
ernor Nebraska ever had" will bring
him many republican votes that could
not be secured for the national tltfket
In passing, it may not be amiss to
state that the republican party form
erly had an overwhelming majority In
Nebraska, but was always divided
into two factions, the monopolists and
antl-monopollsts. The warfare be
teen these factions was very bitter
and continued from about 1880 to 1890,
The people's , independent party has,
since 1890, practically absorbed all tin
cere anti-monopoly republicans who
could, lay aside party for principle, In
1883 the present republican nominee for
supreme judge was elected to the su
preme bench and one or two of his de
cisions show a leaning toward the
anti-monoply wing of his party, as
then constituted; in 1889 he was de
feated for renomlnatlon by the monop
oly wing of his party through conven
tion trickery; and since that time, the
monopoly republicans being in control,
he has smothered his anti-monopoly
views and made herculean efforts to
show that he Is most subservient to
the monopoly ring. He has not been
an anti-monopolist since at least 1832,
and Is now the party nominee of the
most pronounced advocates of trusts,
monopolies and Imperialism. ' But his
campaign will doubtless be made, so

The hay crop is outlined as "unusu
ally Irregular and uueveu" by the
American Agriculturist, which says of
the general conditions: The range Is
from almost complete failure to mag
nillceut luxurlauce, aud when the view
Is narrowed to take in state coudltions
ouly the range Is almost as great. Not
ouly Is there great disparity tn state
conditions, , but within the state the
same Irregularity exists. It Is thus
dltilcuit to summarize the condition for
the whole field, but the careful returns
of our country correspondents furnish
abuudaut basis for the claim that the
hay crop this year will be small lu
comparison with the abundant product
of lust year.
East of the Aileghsnies and In the
south the long spring drought came at
a time when its full effect was appar
ent In the grass crop. Not only was
the crop cut short, but on material
areas no attempt was made to cut any
bay, cattle bclug pastured on meadows
tn the absence of any nourishment on
regular pasture areas. In New Eng
land the crop locally runs from one
fourth to one-half a crop, in New
York and Pennsylvania only three
fourths of a crop la In sight With
ucb a situation In these Important hay
districts If naturally follows that the
general average of condition for the
whole crop Is low.'
West of the Alleghanlea the season
has presented radically different condi
tions. Instead of drought the whole
spring and summer hare been marked
by a great excess of rainfall, and not
looking beyond the bare records of pre
cipitation the public has been convinc
ed thut the grass of the west would
make good any deficiencies In the east.
But such Is not assured. Instead of a
great bay crop as a result of the unu
sual rainfall In the central valleys, the
crop Is inferior to last year for the belt
as a whole, and tn many localities it Is
decidedly smaller than the average for
a series of years.
WMlp the partial failure In the east la
the result of the drought entirely, the
uneven crop of the wesf Is due to a
cause which is apt to be more lasting
aud farreaching. The severe" winter
weather which so nearly di-atroycd the
winter wheat crop over a large district
left a heavy mark on the meadows as
well. Clover suffered to an extent al
most beyond precedent and meadows
Were left In such shape In many sec
tions that the plow was the only reme
dy. On this account there was a larger
area of grass land put to corn than for
many years, and much of what was
spared , will another year be plowed.
The crop promise of the west la not
Dp to the usual standard. Not only will
there be a shortage In tonnage, but the
usual rankness' In weed growth this
year will lowef tbe quality of the crop.
In portions of Ohio, Indiana and Illi
nois the j complaint of : white top Is
greater than ever before, and this pest
will necessitate further plowln up of
grasa land., .

An Ohio Farmerorrespondent aska
whether alfalfa can be sown In an
orchard for bog pasture which has

What May Be Dona After Wheat Ha
vest Sowing Decoy Crops.
The Hessian fly is glvtug trouble In
various uectlous of the country. In a
iHillotlu of the departmcut of ngrlcul
ture on this Uy thu remedies discussed
at length are burning the stubble
plowing uuder the stubble, destruction
of volunteer wheat, planting decoy
strips, rolling, late sowing of fall
wheat. Intermittent wheat culture, pas'
turltig with sheep, mowing aud selec
tion of reslsttttit variotles. Mr. II. Os.
born, the author of the bulletin, says
that a little thought concerning the
measures discussed, with a recognition
of the lifo history facta upon which
they are bused, will suggest thut Uie
best practical results will bo obtained
not by reliance upon any one method
but by an intelligent adaptation of two
or more, accordlug to the conditions
prevailing for the season. These will
constitute, a practice which can be
modified for each year as the condi
uous win indicate.
With the harvesting of grain there Is
open the policy of burning the stubble
or plowing It under or allowing It to
stana ror the exclusion of beneficial
parasites. If the weather la very dull,
k win be best to defer burning, to al
low the Issuance of as many parasltea
aa possible, but If burning Is to be
adopted at all it should be done before'
rail rains set In or the field has grown
un to weeds. If rains occur earl v.
burning will be best, .and In any case
tne atubbie should be plowed under
and rolled aa soon aa there la any ap
pearance or a volunteer growth of
wheat The ; chaff from thrashing
snouia oe Darned and tne screenings
ournea or red to stock aa early as pos
sible, and care should be taken during
autumn to plow under and roll the vol
unteer wheat that springs up In the
stackyard. If winter wheat Is to be
planted, strips of decoy wheat may be
put In to be plowed under at the end of
three or four weeks and finally the
crop piantea at as late a date as prac
ticable, according to dates given In the
paragraph on late planting. This nrac-
tlce can be duly combined with the se
lection of resisting varieties of wheat
and the application of fertilizers.
It will be observed that the modifica
tions are based primarily on the weath
er whether dry or moist, a condition
apparent to every one, and that the Bug'
gestlon amounts to postponement of
burning oi1 plowing If dry, or the early
adoption of one or both If wet.
The proper time for sowing decoys
will vary with the latitude. According
to Webster, for northern. Indiana they
should be bowu' during tie latter part
of August, and In the southern part of
the state not later than the first week
In September. To the north and south
of this he does not undertake tp give
dates, but It would depend,, upon the
date of appearance' of the fall brood
of files, the wheat being planted early
enough to attract the files at the time
of their emergence. A decoy' crop
should be destroyed within f oar weeks
at the utmost, 'and turned under so
deeply that any , Insects maturing
would be unable to escape. . , ,
