An attempt was made to assassinate
John W. Mackay, one of the wealthiest
men in the Uuited States on the 24th inst
in San Francisco. He was shot through
the kick and narrowly escaeU death.
The would-be assassin then turned the
revolver on himself, hut did not take
good aim as it only wounded him. It
seems as if almost all the would-lw as
sassins, of late, get the worst of it.
Trof. Sumner declares that hud it not
been for the war. the United States
would have been today the foremost free
trade nation iu tlie world. Certainly,
and the foreuwst skive power in the
world. She would have gone on from
one decree of shame to another until her
bends instead of being floatable at twelve
per cent as under Buchanan in 1S60 would
liave beea on a par with those of Egypt,
Turkey and the Argentine Republic. The
war spoiled a great deal of democratic
prosperity and happiness is this way.

Tl.e exodus of fanners front li-jitral
'Illinois to Nebraska and the estisa
fruitful subject for the political econom
ist, and around railroad otlices the reas
i ons for the exodus are largely discussed.
I A railroad man. in speaking of t!ie
i chanL'e of the farmers from a well set-
00 1 tied state to Nebraska, said that he re-
EUitvr.i siimed tlie itinerant fanner was probably
in the majority, as landlords had raised
rents in the last few years.
'Only a few rears ago," said he, "a
renter thought he could hardly exist
when he had to give one-third of his
grain at rent, but now tlie rent is two
lifths, and in some cases one-lialf. The
cash rent then was 13 per acre; today it
is $6. So these wide awake heads of
families come west, buy a small piece of
land, jay part down and trust to the fer
tility of the soil for the remainder due on
j their property.
Public oninion will ussigu many
reasons for the movement to our owu
state, but one will seem to be particular
ly conclusive, and lhat is the rapid rise
to high value of lands on which the ac
cupantsin former years toiled hard for
meager prolits lias bred a t'esire to sell
and use the money in land speculations.
The conietition among renters makes
even the firm oues uneasy for fear they
may be supplanted by others with super
ior recommendations or willingness to
offer more money; hence where renters
have a bank account over their cost of
living they constitute a good part of the
exodus, and there are a number of them
amonir the home seekers. Another
r.;in. (mite evident anions the emi
grants is the desire to provide homes for
the children rapidly growing to manhood
It is understood that this is just the be
ginning of a larger exodus from central
Illinois, as hundreds are waiting to hear
the result of the experiment before they
themselves make the change. Bix.
Dawes county land is selliug every
day. This spring will see more changes
in "the ow nership of real estate than have
occurred for several years. Danes
This may be said of all Northwest Ne
braska. The fact is that many farmers
in states farther east cannot afford to
keep their high priced lands and let an
opportunity pass by to buy lands in this
favored county, at a price ranging from
fo to $ 10 per acre. Indications are now
that these cheap lands are going to be
looked after this coming summer and
fall. Crawford Gazette.
Tlie supreme court of Kansas handed
down its decision in the contest cases and
the republican house lias been recognized
as the legally organized body. Justice
Allen, who is a populist, gave his dis
senting opinion also, claiming tliat the
supreme court has no jurisdiction in the
cases. The two houses will now meet
together and recognize tlie republican
speeakeiv All the appropriation bills
v passed by the populist house will have to
be passed again and it is probable that
the election of Martin as senator will
also be contested and require another
election. The whole affair is very much
to be regretted, but if the pops will be
naughty they must be punished.
The Sugar Beet Industry.
There is a bill pending before the Ne
braska legislature proposing a bounty
from the state to tillers of the soil w1k
shall grow sugar beets in this state.
The objct of this commendable measure
is not to provide an easy means to get at
the public funds but on the contrary to
lend the moral support of this great
commonwealth to every effort on the
part of citizens to cultivate the sugar
beet. It will also serve to give official
notice to the producer that no more
profitably crop can be tilled. Experi
ments during the past few years have
amply demonstrated the h'tness of Ne
braska soil and climate for beet culture.
Results have overwhelmingly shown the
croi) to be a most profitable one and
there have been manifold instances
A Gulf Railroad.
Senator Stewart offered this resolu
tion concerning the building of a railroad
to the gulf, which was adopted:
Wnncic Tim iiwtm of the United
States has appropriated six million dol
lars to make a deep water harbor on the
Gulf of Mexico, and
Whereas, The construction of such deep
water harbor would be of little value to
tlie great interior besin of the continent
without a north and south railroad to
said harbor, and
Whereas, A road costing $27,000 per
milH could he constructed from the
north line of Dakota to the gulf for sum
of $21,600,000, and
Whi.-re.is. A tax nf five cents ner acre
on the lands of the ten great states lying
in the great interior oasin wouia con
struct said road and leave a surplus of
over $2,000,000; and
Whereas, The exports of wheat, cat
tle, beef products, meat products and
bread stuff of all kinds amount in round
numbers to S47o.000.000 annually on
which there would be a direct saving in
tmnnnnrtiltinn. eoual to 20 ner cent.
amounting to $04,000,000 annually, or
sufficient to nav tiie cost 01 saia roau
three and one-half times; and
Whereas, The furnishing of said inter
ior north and south transportation would
attract the great manufacturing indus
iries to the irreat interior vallevs and
make them the most populous as well as
the wealthiest portion of the country so
that jNeorasKa in ten years huuiuiuivc
5,000,000 people witli many prosperous
cities like Lincoln and Omaha; and
Whereas, By said transportation fa
cilities the value of the arable lands of
cniil mtrinr states would soon be en
hanced in value at least 35 per cent, and
the value ol otner property proportion
ately increased amounting in all to a
sum 100 times greater than the cost of
said road: now therefore, be it
Rexolved. Bv the senate of the state
and the house concurring, that it is the
cunca tt this ldn-ietnt-iiro 1 h:it. the said ten
states should immediately tale measures
for a co-oierative enort to ouuu saiu

Jhu (Jiiim y Adams and i i.
tmiijfo Inter fi-cau.
The New York It arid calls attention
to tlie parrallel between Judge Gresliaui's
selection for secretary of state and tliat
of John Quincy Adams. The two in
stances certainly have some points in
common up to date, enough to suggest,
naturally enough, some attempt to cast
a political horoseoie, but the II arid is
somewhat ot fault and decidedly incom
plete in its history.
Tlie B'drfil says that Madison, as well as
Monroe, appointed the second Adams as
the head of his cabinet, which is a mis
take. Monroe himself was the secretary
of state under Madison for the greater
part of the time, succeeding Robert
Smith, of Baltimore, w ho had been sec
retary of the navy under Jefferson.
Madison had honored Mr. Adams with
the mission to England and other diplo
matic service. His elevation to the head
of foreign affairs was due to the genuine
spirit of civil service reform as it ob
tained under all the presidents who pie
ceded Andrew Jackson, and not to any
consideration of political exjiediency.
The entire number of removals from
office by the six presidents who precedid
Jackson number, it is said, only seventy
two, all told, including an average of
one removed for embezzlement to
each president, making for the
entire ieriod only two removals
a year. John Quincy Adams had held
high office in the foreign service under
every president, but not continuously.
Between times he had been a United
States senator and a Harvard professor.
So much in the way of corection oi the
positive mistake of the World and for
the general circumstances of the case.
But the real point of insistence on the

should repeat itself the republican party
of to-day would never again be a power
in the politics of the country. It em
phasizes and expatiates upon the fact
that tlie Federal party, to which Adams
had belonged, never again showed its
head. Tliat is true, and far more to the
point, that the republican party of that
day never won another national victory
and soon lay buried in the same grave
with the Federal party. It had m Wil
liam H. Crawford a presidential candi
date in 1824, that gentleman, rather
than Adams, who was also a candidate,
being the regular party nominee. There
was no election by the people, but Craw
ford was so low in the scale as not to lie
a factor in the election by the house of
The democracy in general and the
World in particular are quite welcome
to all the consolation they can derive
from that chapter of political history.
The Inter Ocean lavs claim to no gift of
divination. Tlie next three or four years

the present time, but surely theGresham

little candle lighted by the New York
World, bodes only evil to that "organ-
zed appetite," the democratic party.

The Death Penalty.
The temper of the public mind is prob
ably decidedly adverse at the. present
time to the abolition of the death penal
ty.. The appalling increase of crime in
this country is. awakening serious
thought, and when to this is added" the
decreasing number of convictions for
murder, the tendency of society is un
mistakable. In- 1893 there were 6,793
murders in tlie United States, and only
107 local inflictions of the death penalty.
According to this showing one person in
ever 10.000 was murdered, while only
one murderer in every sixty-three and
one-half met the just punishment or nis
crime. Students of social problems have
also to admit that "reliable statistics
and testimony nrove that, .among all
actions of tlie Christian worn r In the
TJoltad State the highest crimes are
most frequently committed and least
nuaiihid." So Ions a ttowewoarr-
lag facto remain indlsputabto tt wUl ba
uaelesf for amateur philanthropist to
urge toe abolition or r iieawi penaiiy
for tbe crime of munld .
Northern and Southern Orators.
"I have noticed in my frequent visits
to Washington," says Mr. R. W. Haw
kins at the Arlington, "a very decided
difference between the northern and
southern members of congress. I al
ways go to the capitol if congress is in
session, as a sort of religious duty. I
figure to mvself that I am an American
citizen and have to help to pay the salar
ies of these roosters. I waut to see
where they are at and what they are at
I find that the southern 'member is al
most invariably' more fluent, has a
ereater command of language, is blessed
with a more easy delivery, is more prone
to run to the flower of rhetoric, has a
more rotund voice, and enunciates more
clearly. I find tliat the northern mem
ber has a more positive face and manner,
evinces a thorough knowledse of the
subiect under ' discussion, usually dis
play a sounds logic, uses plainer lan
guage, and produces more effect. I find
that the collar of the southern man is
aDt to crow awrv and his coat to come
unbuttoned. I find tliat the collar of the
northerner is always in place and his
coat thoroughly fastened. The south
erner has a tendency to become heated;
the northerner is always cool. As a
legislator I nrefer the northerner. He is
less effervescent and more safe.
