When a populist begins to tell you
that thu republican nomincu for gov

quit e of him how long it has been since
W. H. Thompson severed his connec
tion with a railroad. Wo have never
heard that Mr. Mickey was ever em

been it would speak well for bis abil

f 1 lend if it doosu't speak well for a man
to have been elected treasurer of his
home county for ton consecutive years.
Tho ofllcial count of the votes cast at
tbo recent election in Oregon shows a
greater victory tor the republicans, ex
cept on governor, than any previous
election ever held in tho state. The
majority on the two congressmen is
15,171, against 12,408 in 1000, which
was a presidential year. Tho foreign
policy of Uncle Sam tigured in tho
campaign, and tho people there by
their votes have spoken in no uncer
tain words that they consider it all
right, and wo believe that Nebraska
will do the same at the election this

bonds, which are now about fourteen
years old .lust think of this the next

hands of the county treasurer some
thing liko 11,200, and in a very short
time another bond will bo called in and
canceled. Thoro has never been n fund
created nor a levy made for tho pur
fSjje of paying off theso bonds, and
this amount has accumulated from the
surplus of the levy made to pay the

some day we hope to be able to say we
are out of debt. The city water bonds

RED CLOUD CATTLE BRING $8 00.
Five Cars of Prime Cattle and Their
Miner Bros, and McCall Bros , of
Bed Cloud, Neb , had live cars of cattlo
hero today that avetaged 1,235 and
sold at S3 00 per cwt. Tito cattlo were
exceptionally ripe and well li shed,
and it is a matter of much satisfaction
to their owners that tho South St. Jo
seph bujers showed proper apprecia
tion of these qualities. The 83 head
were mostly Herefords with a few
Shorthorn grades, and were dut up
about the til st of February. For tho
lirst six weeks they had ground wheat
and corn, after which time their grain
was soaked. They consumed about 15
pounds of corn per day and 8 pounds
of cottonseed meal and had all tho al
falfa hay they could eat. Under this
tieatment a gain of 2 pounds per day
for tho entire feeding period is shown
and the cittlo ato turned off with
plenty of finish. Speaking of tho sale
Mr. J. L.Miner said: "Of courso wo
aro satisfied with the price and the
cattlo don't lose us any money. I have
been shipping stock for 25 years and
have gone to all tho markets, but now
that we can sell our stuff for what it is
worth at St Joseph, wo bring all of it
here. This markot lacks a littlo of the
snap and hurry that is found nt sotno
oilier points, but if a shipper comes
here right along through tho year ho
will bo the fa'ner by it.-' Mr. Miner

Death of Peter Albright.
Peter Albright, an old and highly
respected citizen of this city, departed
this life last evening, at about 8
o'clock, at his home in the northwest
part of this city. Mr. Albright,
who was past 80 year3 of ago, was the
father of Louis P., Stewart and A I
Albright and Mrs. John Garbor of this
city and Mrs. I. Frisbio of Amboy, all
of whom wore at tho bedside of their
father at tho timo of his death. Mr.
Albright has boon sick for the greater
part of the last four yoars and last
Thursday ho suffered another stroke
of paralysis and it was not thought at
that timo that ho could survive. At
this writing it is not known just when
tho funoral services will be hold.
Last Night's Storm.
Tho slot 111 which passed over this
city last evening was one of tho sever
est of tho year. Tho high wind, which
arose very suddenly, did quite a little
damage, broaking limbs from trees,
overtnrning outbuilding, nd m the
II. & M. yards a number of froighl cars
wero unrooted. Tho buildings and
fences around tbo old fair gronndi
were literally torn to piecos. Too rain
which ten nas causou tbo streams to
overflow their banks again, tearing
away fences and temporary bridges
which had boon put in in placos. Tho

A careful study of the auove table will reveal some very interesting things.
Tho impression has been prevalent that there was but very little corn planted
in this county t.is year, but according to tho nbove thoro were in round num
bers 15,500 ncres more of corn planted this year than last. This, with the
wheat acreage more than double what it was last year, will come to many
.somewhat as a surprise. Again, tho only crop which seems to show a falling
off in acreage is oats, ami iu that only 175 acres.
In livestock tho only thing in which there seems to be an increase is cattle,
an increase of 070 head, while in hogs there is a falling off of more than 10,000
head. These llgures aro tho totals as turned in by tho assessors of tho county,
and as such aro of courso as nearly accurate as can bu obtaiuod ami aru much
more nearly correct than any estimate which could bo made, as each assessor
visited tho pets ns assessed and took (heir statements, and the tigutes weie
totaled by tho county clork. It would seem from tho above ligures, anil taking
iuto consideration tho condition of crops over tho county tit this writing aud
the further fact that the above conditions apply to practically the whole state,
that feed of all kinds will certainly bo very cheap this fall, while prices foi
livestock will remain good until along lato in the winter, as it is hardly prob
able that corn-fed stuff will be ready to market until February or March. Of
courso there may bo enough brought to market previous to that time to lower
prices a little, but yet not enough to make meats cjicap, nor will meat prices bo
as high as they are now, as prices aro now much higher thau thoy have been in
years. Another thing which is somowhat surprising is that, notwithstanding
tho high prices of stock of all kinds this year, tho assessid value of stock is
much lower than last year, and whit is truo of this county is nlso true of othor
counties over the state .Cuttlo have an average assessed valuo this year of only
0 cents each per head more than last year, and sheep only 5 cents more. Horses
have an average assessed valuation of 53 cents each less and hogs 18 cents each
less, and mults and asses havo an average assessed valuo of Gl cents each less.
Another thing that looks well is the great increase in fruit and forest trees,,
both of theso having more than doubled in number in tho past year.
