Ther hare been but twenty-six local
fir companies report receded at the
auditor' office, but these compa
nies organized In different part of the
state will give the people aa educa
tion that will push the work to the
front at a rapid rate. We presume
these twenty-six companies will this
year more than double the amount
written last year, which was $1,790,
90.10. At the beginning of 1892 these
twenty-six companies had 11,891.169.33.
The total amount in risk on Jan. 1, 1893
was 13,592,160.03. These companies
bar 18,507.63 on hand, with
liabilities amounting to. 1185,66.
The . total loss of all this
amount at risk is tl.225 14 which is
fully paid. The total assessment due
and unpaid on all companies is but
tll2 95, 167.50 ol this amount from one
There art several local fire compa
nies not reported, and some of them
have several hundred thousand dollars
Therefore we estimate that there Is at
least 16,000,000.00 Insurance now writ
ten in the mutual , companies in this
state. Bnt in this particular we are
far behind Iowa for their total amount
la over $100,000,000.00.
Now with the above report from
twenty-six companies In our own state
before you, it seems to me that if you
have no company In which you oan in
sure tbat every man in the
state' should say to himself first,
that he wa going to have a company,
and that soon, and then tell bis neigh
bors, and not stop at that but push to
the front, everybody put his shoulder
to the wheel and the burden of organi
sation will be light on all. But do not
allow One mm to do all the work and
then not pay him for It.
I will have this information tabulat
ed soon and printed on slips giving
name of county, name of Moratory and
postoffloe, amount at risk and amount
written last year, cash on hand, uncol
lected assessments, liabilities, income,
liabilities and losses, all totalized and
giving a good history of each company
as per report in the auditor's office.
The Nebraska Clyolone company had
on January 1st, 1234,582.00 at risk.
Coamenoed business on March 19th
last with $150,000 since which time it
has sustained no loss. Is out of debt
with $102.10 on hand. Since January
1st we have received several good ap
plications, and still the good work of
reform goes on.
In our hall company we now have
about $1,500 on hand and several prom
ises to pay soon. At this time we can
not tejl when we will make the next
and last apportionment, but it will not
' be for some time as we want to make a
full report at that time, and want to
collect every cent we can from delin
quents. We want some one in each
neighborhood to push up his delin
quent neighbors in keeping their own
word. Every member made a promise
to us as a company of individuals and
neighbors to pay 10 cents per acre for
his protection, and now he should ba
maneno'igh to make his word good
without so much sharp talk on the part
of those who have Buffered losses
through me as their agent. It is our
determination to do all In our power to
collect this money, because we are mor
ally responsible to those who have had
losses for the 10 per cent, and If we can
not get the total amount we will tell
exactly who . is to blame and why.
Hence if ftnyVnambar has not yet paid

House of Common Wm
London, Feb. 14 To-day marked an
era In the history of Great Hritain and
Ireland for. to-day William E. Glad
atone, the venerable Liberal leader,
presented to the house of commons his
measure providing for homo rule for
The knowledge that Mr. G'adstone
would make the crowning effort of his
wonderful career caused Intense in
terest among all classes and long be
fore noon the streets about Westmin
ster were ciowded, while the inner
lobby bt the house was packed with
members and the gallery approaches
were jammed. When the doors were
opened there was an unusual rush for
seats, members and spectators shout
ing and struggling like a mob of ex
cursionists. The veteran Caleb Wright, Liberal
member of parliament for Southwest
Lancashire, who is 83 years of age,
was unable to hold his own in the
crush, fell In the doorway and was
trampled upon until John Burns, the
labor representative, . opposed his
shoulders to the crowd while Wright
was picked up and borne away.
The crush ended at last and all who
could secured seats and waited for the
feast of Gladiitonian eloquence. Every
seat in the house except the govern
ment bench was ecu pied.
When Mr. Gladstone entered the
house at 3:30 o'clock, every Liberal and
Irish Nationalist stood, ud and srreeted
him with prolonged and enthusiastic
cheers, '. : l'
, When Mr. Gladstone arose at 3:40 p.
m., to introduce the home rule bill.
there was another demonstration so
earnest, so enthusiastic and irrepressi
ble that it was several minutes before
he could be heard. '
JK. Gladstone spoke as follows, in a
dear, strong and resonant voice:
I mar without Impropriety remind the house
that the voices which usually pleaded the cause
of Irish self-government in Irish affairs have,
within these walls during the past seven years,
been almost entirely mute. I return, there
fore, to the tertod of 189A. when a proposition
of this kind was submitted on the part 6f the
government of to day, and I beg to remind tha
house of the position then taken by all the
promoters of these measures We said that we
bad arrived at a point In our transactions with
Ireland where the two roads parted "You
have," we said, "to choose one or the other."
One is the way of Irish autonomy according to
the conceptions I have Just referred to: the
other Is tho way of coercion. It will be the
recollection of the house, however, that that
contention was most stoutly and largely de
nied. It was said over and over anln by man)
members of the opposite side: "We are not
coercion Is w; we do not adopt that alternative,
and neither can we adopt it. Ministerial cheers
That assertion of their was undoubtedly sus
tained by the proposals, especially from the
dissentient Liberals, of various plans of deal
ing with Irish affairs. Those plans, though
they have fell entirely short In principle and
in scope of Irish self government, yet were of
no trivial or mean importance. They were far
beyond what had heretofore been usually pro
posed in the way of local self government for
Well, what has been the result of the
dilemma as it was then put forward on this
side of the house and repelled by the other?
Has our contention that the choice lay between
autonomy and coercion been Justified or not?
What has become of each and all of these
important Bchemes for giving Ireland self gov
ernment in provinces, and giving her even a
central rstabllshment In Dublin with limited
powers? All vanished into thin air but tha
The roads were still there autonomy or
coeroion. The choice lay between them and
the choice made was to repeal autonomy and
embrace coercion. You cannot always follow
coercion in an absolute uniform method. In
1888 for the first time coeroion was imposed on
Ireland in the shape of a permanent law
added to the statute book. This statute consti
tuted an offending against the harmony and
traditions of self government. It was a violent
breach of the promise on the faith of which
union was obtained. The permanent system
of repression inflicted upon the country a
state of things which, could not continue to ex
ist. It was impossible to fering the inhabitants
of the country under coeroion into sympathy
with the coercion power
Mr. Gladstone proceeded to dilate at
length upon the circumstances under
which the act of union was passed, the
promise of equalit in the laws and of
commercial equality under which
union was effected. It was then proph
esied confidently, he said, that Irish
men would take their places in the
cabinet of the United Kingdom, but it
had been his honored destiny to sit in
cabinets with no les than sixty to
seventy statesmen, of whom only one,
Duke of Wellington, was an Irishman,
while Castlereagh was the only other
Irishman who had sat in the cabinet
since union. Pitt promised equal laws
when the union was formed, but the
broken promises made to Ireland'
were unhappily written in indelible
characters in the history of the
country. Coming to 1832, when the
resurrection of the people began, and
thence down to 188 Ireland could
present only a small minority in favor
ofiestoring to her something in the
nature of constitutional rights and
practical self government.
IRELAND'S OVERWHELMING DEMAND.
The venerable leader then continued:
it is to me astonishing that so littlo weight
is attached by many to the fact that before
1889 before 1885, Indeed Irish wishes of self
government were represented only by a small
minority. Since 1885 when the wide extension
of the franchise was protected by the sa ret
ballot. Ireland's position has been Improved

the successful instigation of those whose plot
it was to divide the people of Ireland when
they were united at tha close of
the last century, through the medium
mainly of Orange lodges and through re
ligious animosity, there was an alteration of
feeling, but the Protestants of Ireland, during
the period of the Independent Irish parlia
ment, were themselves not only willing but
tealous and enthusiastic supporters of Irish
nationality. Inasmuch as their political life
was at that period more highly developed they

who have seen them alter, not through their
own fault, are not ready to be persuaded that
they will not alter back again to the sentiment
of their own ancestors, cheers and when their
own blood and their own people form one, in
noble glorious unity.
Alluding to the English feeling to
ward Irish home rule, Mr. Gladstone
said he would refrain from urging that
England would find herself exhausted
and her work made impracticable by
resistance to Irish demands. He could
well conceive England maintaining, if
so minded, resistance to Irish demands,
but England's conversion to home
rule had been rapid. In 1880 Eng
land's majority adverse to home
rule was 211. It had, now declined
to 71. In the face of such a fact who
would guarantee the permanence of
the remainder? Cheers. He would
now ask the indulgence of the house
whilst giving an account of the bilL
Cheers. He could not undertake to
supply a mere table of contents. The
bill, if he did, would probably be
wilder than his hearers. He would
rather seek to present the salient
points, hoping . to leave a living im
pression on the minds and memories
of his hearers. .
FEATURES OF THE NEW MEASURE.
The object of the bill remained as in
1886, to establish a legislative body in
Dublin for the conduct of both legisla
tion and administration in Irish as dis
tinct from imperial affairs. Cheers.
The limiting conditions which were
then observed and had since been sed
ulously and closely observed were
First Imperial unity is observed and tho
quality of all is observed.
Second The equality of all the kingdoms
would be borne in mind.
Third There would be equitable reparation
of imperial cnires
Fourth Any and every practicable pro
vision for the protection of minorities would
be Included. The plan proposed ouht to be
such as to present the necessary characteris
tics of real and continued settlement -
Mr. Gladstone spoke until 6 o'clock
and was not exhausted in the least.
He finished amid great enthusiasm.
The Liberal Majority Goodly.
London, Feb. 1 4. After a long de
bate in which Mr. Gla one took a
leading part, the house f commons
approved of the Liberal address in re
ply to the queen's speech by a vote of

E. B. Slosson, Gen. Agt,
. Are You Going East?
Now just take a word of advice: Let
your next trip be by the North-Western
line. Do you think it a longer
route to Chicago than the others? It is
not. It is shorter. Its equipment in
ferior? No, there's nothing better.
Track less smooth? By no means; it is
the best. Time longer, and more in
convenient leaving hours? Should say
not, but just the i contrary. If you do
not want to leave as early as 1:40 p. m.r
just try our "Business Man's Chicago
Train," leaving at 5:25 p. m., arriving
in Ch icago 9:30 next morning in six
teen hours. Anything wrong with
that time9 Go right on to Boston if
you mutt in forty-five hours from Lin
coln; New York, forty-four; Philadel-peia.forty-two;Washington,forty-three.
There's nothing better than this. Gome
and see us. A. S. Fielding,

No Real Rival Vet.
World famous Eli Perkins says:
"After people have gone over all the
routes to California once, they settle
down to the U. P. This road will al
ways be the great transcontinental line.
It has the best track, the best equip
ment, the best eating houses, and it
teaches the traveler more history and
geography than any other line. It
shows you historic Salt Lake and the
Mormons, takes you through the great
Laramie plains, the Humboldt Basin
and the Grand Canyon, over the very
stage route that Horace Greeley ana
Artemus Ward rode. '
Once on the Union Pacific it goes
everywhere. It runs to Portland and
Pueblo, Helena and the Yosemite, Ta
coma and Seattle, Los Angeles and San
Diego, and i the only route to San
Francisco. It has no real rivals yet."
