the energy and ingenuity he displayed in

sending away from home, and the peo
ple the inconvenience of being longer
out of water.

testimony here, and when the case was
tried at the land office Dorington got A.

The prospects appear to 1)6 that the
national capital will get the world's fair,
any of the members of both Senate and
House are said to pretty well committed
in favor of Washington. Other things
being equal it would be right and proper
to hold it there, but the fact of that city
being so far to one side of tlie nation, it
a question whether it would be possi
ble for so great a number of the Citizens
of the United States to visit the fair.

It is reported that a bill is to be ititro
duced in the legislature of South Dakota
for the taxation of mortgages on the
farms of the state. That may be a good
way to increase the resources of the
state, but it will doubtless pfoVe a poor
policy in the long rum If the eastern
money which finds a safe invesiment in
western farm mortgages is to be taxed
in South Dakota the settlers there will
find it hard to obtain money to aid them
in improving their farms, at tlie rate of
interest at which it can now be bor
rowed. All the difference that it will
make is that the loan companies will add
enough to the rate of interest to cover
the amount of taxes, and the parties
who borrow the money will have to
pay taxes on their own property and al
so on the loan. It would be better for
the settlers if the matter was left as it is
in Nebraska, at least until the new por
tions are settled. In .the older portions
of Nebraska eastern capital seeks invest
ment at a very low rate on real estate
security, but in the newer portions a.
good deal of caution is still exercised and
a higher rate of interest demanded, and
so it has been all the way from the east
line of the state. As fast as a locality
or county gets settled up the rate of in
terest drops. It will lie but a few years
until money will lie much cheaper here
than at present.
