The Gathei-lnjc of the Claa.
Linco'n has cot for two years en
joyed bo much genuine political ex
c:ttment as siie has during tho past
twoweeka. Though the excitement
has perhaps not bocn so intense as it
was two years ago, it has been of a
mere exuberant and pleasurable char
acter. Two years ago tho great "con
test" weighed down the spirits of the
members of all parties. Now there is
nothing of the kind. It is true there
has been a great deal of uncertainty in
the situation, but there is this year an
unusually largo number of able and ex
perienced men among the members
elected by all parties, and especially
the independent party. And they have
proceeded to the preliminary work with
cool determination. It is a remarka
ble fact that, although the independj
ents are a minority party in lhte"J&
lature, they have disy'jyed mor.jon-
fidence and detpf VJJ to JUfcceed

inches deep, throwing the top soil
on either side - as - before mentioned.
I never use a team in doing the work.
It should be done" with the spade,
rake and hoe, and in cultivating, jthe-hand-plow,
rake and hoe are sufficient.
,My experience with manures has
proven they should be thoroughly

well mixed with the soil. I have
never used anything superior : toj well
rotted barn yard manure for potatoes
and cabbage, but hen house manure
mixed with lime or ashes is far pref
erable for onions, peas, beans,m"elons
cucumbers, . etc. Many gaiMeners
scatter fhe manure promisfuouslv
over the ground. My experience
teaches me the better and jbheapei
plan to apply it to the, ilds only
whei it will do the most goad. After

beds over the second tipio, with the
addition of more well rptted manure

During Saturday, Sunday and Mon
day, many rumors were afloat that the
republicans had bribed the independ
ents to help them rganize. There is
not a particle of dount that efforts were
made to bribe members. A party hus
sunk very low indued when its only
hope of success lies in corrupting the
membeis of another party. But all
their efforts were in vain. . In fact, so
great was t e conn ence and enthusi
asm of the independents that they paid
but little a'tei.t'on o these rumors.
The number of applicants for posi
tions is by no means small Almost
every employe of the last legislature is
on hands, and pe fectly willing to sac
rifice himself on the altar of his par y
for another term at $3 per day. There
is also quite a large contingent of new
applicants and the legislature will have
no trouble in finding good material to
fill all positions.
THE HOUSE ORGANIZED. .
It was exa tly at high noon that Sec-
greeted the speeches and hard hits of
Porter and Casper.
The applause from the republican
side when Watson tried to reply was
very weak and scattering.
It was nearly half past three when
temporary speaker Sheridan rapped for
order, a d aru-r a quorum bad beea de
clared pr sent, railed for tbe report of
the committee on credentials.
It was read by Casper. It left the
roll just as that prepared bv the sec'y

swearing in the new members.
When the time for swearing in the
new members came Temporary Chair
man Davidson ruled that the members
whose seats were contested could not
be sworn in. Tho Republicans at
tacked the ruling, but on an appeal to
the house the speaker was sustained.

Urging a Canal Syatem. For Europe.
The president of the Vienna corn
exchange, in a recent speech, 6ald
that grain growing in Europe has
ceased to be remunerative, owing to
the development of new agricultural
regions and to the lowering of railroad
rates. The only chance he could see
for the European farmer was in the
construction of a network of canals in
central Europe. Cheap water trans
portation would help the European
farmer against the competition of the
