Northwestern Bureau. Washington.:
B. 0., Aug. 2.—The Jews of the United.
States are moving forward along th.v
lines of a program which demands
full rights for their race in all lands,
and the abrogation of all laws dis
criminating against them. At a recent /
conference a resolution was passed
favoring the idea of a congress, which j
should seek full religious, civil, and
political freedom for Jews. The ac
tivities of the congress will be restrict
ed to these particular lines of en
deavor. Justice Louis O. Brandeis of
^ ie United States Supreme court, is
one of the leading champions of the
movement, which has taken concrete
form, and through his efforts and these i
of Oscar S. Strauss and other promi
nent Jews, a permanent “Conference
fc - of National Jewish Organizations” has
been formed. There has been a great
deal published within recent months
concerning the Zionist movement
which contemplates establishing Jew
ish colonies in Palestine at the close
of the war. The same prominent He
brews who are at the head of the pres
ent movement for protecting the
rights of their people in America and :
other countries, are very largely .in
terested in restoring a large part of
Palestine to their own people, in the
hope that in time they may gain
through peaceful mea-'s an independ
cut government of their own. The
leaders of tiie movement believe that
s ieh a movement is particularly rte
s I ruble at this time on account of the
large number of Jews of Europe who
' ill be homeless and friendless mi
der the new order of conditions that
v, iil come with peace. It may also be
j ussible that a great many American
J ws will desire to go back to the land
of their fathers in case the Zionist
movement succeeds.
Justice Brandeis and the influential
Jews who are acting with him. are
proceeding upon the theory that there
i.; radical discrimination against the
Jews of America. and their efforts ore
directed toward obtaining civil, re
1 gious and political rights, and in
addition thereto, wherever the various
'■copies of any land are recognized as
V having separate group rights, the con
ferring upon the Jews of the same
kind of treatment and privileges, if
desired by them.
The Boys on the Rio Grande.
Apparently nobody in Washington
ever wanted a war with Mexico. Nev
ertheless. the federal and state troops
were pushed forward just as though
it was intended to slaughter every
body in the realms of Carranza and
Villa. Now that the state troops are
on the border their great anxiety
tnems to be to return home. They are
:v energetic a lot of kickers as
America has ever produced. Since a
great many of them are very influ
ential, their protests are being head
ed at the National Capitol, where
senators and representatives are bus
vy engaged in efforts to put an end
to the holiday along the Rio Grande.
Growth of the Postal Savings Bank.
Recent reports of the post office de
pnrtment show that there are 596,009
depositors in the United States, with
approximately §80.000.000 standing to
their eredi.t The principal growth of
the government hanking institution js
in the larger cities, where there is
not so much confidence in the bankers,
as exists in small communities, where
the officials are mere intimately ob
served by those who place their funds
;n their care.
Moving Pictures.
Propagandists are turning more and
more to the moving pictures as the
means of reaching the people, and the
film known as "The Battle Cry of
Peace" undoubtedly had a greater in
fluence on the preparedness measure
in congress, than anything that was
written or said in the press or from
ilie rostrum. The "movies” certainly
make a hit with the public. Thomas
H. lnee lias arranged a cinema-spec
taole called “Civilization,” showing
the horrors of war. The production
is in reality a peace play, and in mag- j
nificence there has never been any- i
thing to excel it. Unlike “The Battle;
Cry of Peace" Mr. Ince's production j
is not propoganda. It is purely a i
business venture. The sentiment ex- j
pressed in this great film has sc
captivated the people of the large
cities that the production is classec
as a big financial success. It will like
ly be shown throughout the country
and the people of the smaller town;
will have an opportunity to see it.
The Literacy Test.
The common argument used against
the legislation for a literacy test foi
immigrants, is that in certain por
tions of the country, notably Norti
Carolina, there are thousands of peo
pie of old American stock who have
never learned to read or write. Tht
American public hears of them onl>
occasionally, and usually that it
through the medium of moving pic
tures or fiction writers. Deadly feud;
like that of the Allen brothers ol
Virginia, brings into prominence tht
half-savage conditions surrounding the
lives led by mountaineers. A recem
newspaper item throws light upon
the obscure conditions of a North Car
olina town, where United State.
money is seldom used. Pensacola i;
a one-man town, and the mines, lum

The business in the place is carried
on by use of the company’s “scrip." 01
due bills, which take the place of cash
at the company’s stores. The situa
tion is so tight that a moving picture

cola and found it necessary to accept

Fish Eaters are too Few.
J ne Department oi Commerce has
instigated a movement in congress to
regain the fish trade lost by American
fishermen on account of the construe
tion of the Canadian railways, and tb>
subsidies granted by the Department
of Agriculture, show that the Ameri
can people are not making the proper
use of fish as food, and that. whiL
meats have doubled and redoubled in
price, the great fish interests have not
c-nly failed to keep pace with othei
lines of industry; but have also been
unable to secure the home market.
A common illustration ' of this is
shown in the fact that sardines and
herring, sold in cans, usually bear
the label of the Scandinavian coun
tries. This, notwithstanding the fact
that the American fish grow just as
large and swim just as fast, and are
equally as good to eat as the members
of the finny tribe that come from the
European waters. The governments
of Germany and France have made
campaigns among their people in or
der to educate them in the use of fish
as food. The same class of educa
tional work that is now being done
among the farmers of this country,
was extended bV the European, to
teach the people the value of fish. In
the United States there is a very
foolish notion that fish from the sea
cannot be shipped but a very short
distance inland. The trouble is that
the government has not given suffi
cient guarantee of the methods by
which the housewife may feel any de
gree of safety in supplying her hus
band and brood with New England
cod and halibut on a dining room
table in Missouri or Oklahoma. But
as the meat inspection service of the
government becomes more efficient
the revenues of the packing houses
will decrease, and our fisheries will
become more profitable and popular.

John Robinson's shows gave two1
performances in Loup City Tuesday.
A large crowd was present in the af
ternoon. but the evening turnout was
not large. Those in attendance all
spoke in the highest terms of the
j performance, and the general cour- j
j teous treatment received by them by
the management.
The entire performance was of the
highest order, not a poor act on the
program. The trained seals, in their
balancing feats brought fortli much
applause, as did the bicycle riding
j of the baboons. The Nelson family ,
i of acrobats are probably unequalled :
' by any performers in the country
and the crowd, by hearty applause
j showed its appreciation of their act.
j The high school horses also delight- j
! ed all lovers of gaited horses, the j
: aerial acts weite there with their j
| thrills and the w'ire and rope per- \
j formers, along with the bareback ,
f riders, were up to the standard of j
| the larger shows.
The afternoon crowd was estimat
i ed at something over 3.000, the rain
I of the night before preventing thrash
I ing and allowing the farmers to be
present. The show^ loaded shortly af
ter the evening performance and went
from here to St. Paul.

hoard held a meeting Wednesday
morning and. although the full mem
bership was not present, those took
up the matter of the employment of
an architect. Mr. McGuimiis of Lin

also has the contract for the library

To my ice patrons and the general
The impression is being spread by
someone that I am charging sixty
cents per hundred for ice. To all my
regular ice patrons, if they commence
to take before the 10th of June it
costs them 50 cents per hundred and
all who started after that date it is
60 cents per hundred. Everybody
starting after that day and just taking
during the hottest weather ought to
pay at least 10 cents per hundred more
than those that take the five months.
Now some who are paying 50 cents
per hundred are giving out the im
pression that they are paying 60
cents per hundred. Anyone tvho tells
you this you ask them to iet you sec
their ticket and if you can find any
one regular ice. patron who 1 am
charging over 50 cents. 1 will gi ,ie
you J5. Remember anyone starting
before the 10 of June is a regular
patron. The month of July was the
best ice month I have ever had. It
true that your ice bills were high for
the month .of July, but you did not
say how low they were for the year.
The month of May and June except
the last four days of June, were very
poor. There is always some one tak
ing the joy out of life. Extra ice for
ice cream is aiso 60 cents per hun
dred. Thanking you one and all for
your patronage during the past month
and the past years.—Jas. W. Conger.

All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. The kidneys filter the blood.
They work night #md day. When
healthy they remove about 500
[ grains of impure matter daily, when
unhealthy some part of the impure
matter is left in the blood. This
brings on many diseases and symp
toms—which vary widely but may in
elude pain in the back, headache,
nervousness, hot. dry skin, rheumatk

sessions, all program events will be
held during the luncheon hour, leav

free to the merchants. Two good
speakers will be secured to talk on

Plans are fast being prefected for
tie greatest of the tractor shows 01
power demonstrations which will be
held in Fremont the week ot August
7 to 11.
The tractor grounds are going to
be in better shape than they were
last year for the growing grain has
already been cut and some of it has
been thrashed. Last year one field
and portions of others were not cut
on account of the wet weather. The
fields were plowed with the tractors
which may have made more of a de
monstration than otherwise.
The Commercial club has the show
well in hand and has apportioned
the work of looking after the various
details by appointing a number of
committees with live wires on every
one of them.
The tractor grounds this year will
be lighted with electricity which
will meet with the approval of -til
the representatives at the show and
will materially show off the place
at night. The city plant is geting
ready to string the wires and make
a distribution that will give each
tent sufficient lighting. An effort
is being made to have the Bell Tele
phone company string wires on the
same poles and furnish telephones
for the exhibitors. Last year there
was one phone on the grounds and
that was a toll line and there was
hardly a moment during the day or
evening when it was not in use. If
the company can be induced to in
stall a number of instruments it will
relieve the situation and aid the rep
resentaives by giving them so much
quicker service.
Chairman John Gumb who has
‘ barge of the wrestling matc h has the
contract signed by Champion Joe
Stecker so there will be no slip-up in
this section of the entertainment.
At a meeting of the Commercial
club it was decided to repeat the
watermelon feature again this year
and a couple of carloads of the lus
cious green or red fruit will be on
hand for the free distribution at the
grounds immediately following the
demonstration every afernoon.
If the Fremont growers are able
to supply the demand they will get
the order if not they will be shipped I

The transportation committee has
laid out an official route to and from
| the grounds and special officers will
be detailed at the turns to see that
all abide by the rule. Going to the
| grounds the route will be Broad
| street to Tenth. Tenth to Nye. Nye
to Twenty-Second, thence to the
grounds. Returning vehicles will be
jsent south to the Morse Park road,
to the Cemetery road, to Pierce stre-t
and south on Pierce to Military
avenue. The change to Pierce is for
a better road and also detours from
the road going out. Barrels' are to
be placed in the intersection of
Twelfth street with signs readim
“keep to the right." Cement posts
ordered by the city will not be ready
at the time of the show. The prices
to be charged are 25 cents one way.
A new committee this year is one
on sanitation. The grounds are to
be kept in tip top shape, a clean-ui
to be made every night. There wii!
be water mains on the various
streets and they will not be allowed
to form mud holes as heretofore bn;
will be taken care of. A manufa
turing company is to have charge of
the toilet facilities, a new system
which it makes will be used.
All concessions are to be handled
by the club so that whatever profit
accrues will go to it. A large stand
will be built and divided into stalls.
