No. 18. Why, if the United States is
the most progressive country on earth
has she increased bercirculating medium
only $2.07 per capita during the last 2t
years, while Great Britian increased
hers 10.70; Germany hers 5.69; Belgium
hers 14.05; the Netherlands $7.50 and
Italy hers $5. 01 ? What does this show

19. If an individual must give three
to five times the value of a loan as se

2L Why do 150,000 Americans spend
annually $175,000,000 beyond the Atlan
tic when they have never seen the one
thousandth part of their own country.
22. Why, if France and Germany can
produce sujgar and ship it here and pay
40 per cent duty on it, it cannot be
produced here where everything is cheap
without a 2 cent bounty ?
23. Why are cattle 50 per cent higher
now with a $2-ahead tariff, than they
were four years ago with a $10-ahead
24. If a tariff of $25, ahead should be
placed on horses imported, would it in
crease their value that amount ? If not,
why not ?
25. If there is 15 cents a bushel tariff
on corn why does it sell in Iowa now, at
5 to 10 cents a bushel ? Will Canada
"dump" her surplus on us and "bear"
the market ?
23. If tariff on anything should be so
high as to forestall imports, how will
the revenue be raised ?
27. If revenue is to come by direct
taxation, who should pay it? Those
who have, or those who have nothing ?
2S. Is not a tariff on anything produc
ed in this country, manfactured or other
wise, a tariff of protection ? If so, is it
not intended to enhance the value tiiat
much 1 If so, is it not a sort of "com
bine" between the producer and the gov

Will the geovernment prosecute itself

Colonel Mailer's Airship.
Lincoln, Neb., April 19. To the E.litor
of the Worln-Herald: There was some
doubt in my mind as to the airship we
read so much about Until I read a dis
patch in your Sunday paper from Harri
son, Neb., aliout several eminent gentle
men seeing it at that point. All doubt as
to its genuioenesss has been removed, al
though tliey differ in their description.
I know that not one of those men 'ever
'touch a drop," neither would they say
they saw it unless they had, and as Col
onel Maheryour correspondent, is known
all over the country for his truth and
varacity, it will no longer 1 questioned.
In the first place, it would be about the
time of night that my old friend John
Tinnen, would be prowling around ;he
chicken coop, Charlie Coffee woulJ
naturally 1 ont at midnight looking
after the wheel of his windmill. Mr. Hub
agger would 1 out letting 1 he wave of
prosperity blow through his whiskers.
I can prove that by El Rich of Omaliu.
Ernest Dailey would be out about that
time of night watching patiently for Mr.
Whipple to return with some of his free
silver that was deposited in Whipple's
hank' and Judge Bartow wor.ld be out
watching for the federal appointment
that John M. Thurston is lo get for him
as soon as ha gets all of the boys at
Grand Island fixed up in good shape. No
houbt about it, the air.se ip is genuine.
(irant's Achievement as a Peacemaker.
The honors and attentions showered
upon General Grant during his tour ol
the world are, perhaps, unequeled hi the
history of kingly hospitality. He was
recieved everywhere as the greatest
soldier of his time and as the foremost
living American. Hon. John Russell
Young, who accompanied General Grant
throughout the famous journev, fraphi
call v recalls, in the May Ijidwit Uowt
Journal, its conspicuous incidents; the
receptiions, dinners, fetes, bills, etc.,
given in honor of the illustrious Ameri
can. It is said that Mi'. Young brings to
light a fact that has recieved but passing
attention; that General Grant was instru
mental in arranging t he terms of a treat y
of peace lift ween China and Japan, which
prevented an outbreak of war between
Reporters Privileged Characters.
Four Buffalo newspaper rpporfers were
caugnt by the police at a prize fierht, and
arrested along with the other spectators.
The court, however, refused to hold the
reporters, saying it was a principle of
law, as well as common sense, that three
kinds of men were permitted to go any
where without blame doctors, clergy
men and reporters. Buffalo re;ir,rters
now wear badges signify mg their call

Progress of Exposition.
Estimated already ubmitted fix the
the prolxible cost of putting the Exposi
tion trrounds in shape for all purposes at
$ 550,000. The fence enclosing t he grounds
nearly complaten, will be about live
mill's in extent.
Nearly $1,000,000 is in sight, from nil
sources, for the Exposition. This sum is
lieing constantly added to and it is ex
pected will be more than doubled by the
end of 1H07.
The railroads in this territory bnve al
ready suliscribed 7C,000 for the Exposi
tion. Other railroad subscriptions will
double this amount.
The wealth, resources and advantages
of every countv in Nebraska will lie
set forth in the State exhibit, compared
with which all former exhibits will Ihj

commissioners, appointed by the gover

these positions most active competition
is lieing niado by prominent men all
over the state.
It really requires carafnl thought and
considerable ingenuity for a fashionable
woman to think out some honest means
of penance whereby, during Lent, she
may save for her Easter offering. This
season the sjiecial form of self-denial
must of course differ from that practiced
during any foregoing Lent; and after due
consideration jewel wearing is the cause
which w ill sw many an Easter fund.
From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday
not an ornament can be worn save on
the payment of a fine. Wedding and en
gagement rings are permitted only Jiy
virtue of a weekly line, and any gems
used as adornment, Inside these tokens
of vows, must he paid for at the rate of
five per cent, of their value. The woman
who makes a gift of a jewel must deposit
a fine for the act in her Easter box; she
who recieves the gift of a jjwel must
also pay the penalty into her fund; while
false jewels, ornamental hat pins, neces
sary little stick pins, a watch, or even a
garter buckle, all come under tha head
of prohibited jewels. In consequence of
this new rule, which will hold until
Easter Sunday, smart women are wear
ing natural flowers, California violets be
ing the most popular blossoms, keeping
only their watches, belt buckles, hat-pins
and wedding rings in use, for, comfort's
sake, sodas a means of Increasing tha
