It should interest every fannerin Nebraska
to know that be can sell out hia high-priced
lands and move to the fertile valle a of East
ern Assinibo a and bay land at from $8 oo to
fit oo per acre, with an expenditure of very
ttle cash. It must certainly be of interest
also to know that the taxes on improved farma
in this famous district are fum 12.50 to $5 00
on the quarter secti n. Hundreds have come
into this d strict from Minnesota, Iowa and
Nebraska at my instigation and have found
a district just as fertile, and the winters jurt
aa pleasant, as in the Western States, and
prosperity more generally prevailing. Poor
men who came to thia district two years ago
and purchased land at f 8.00 per acrt are now
prosperous and contented. In 1901- Areola
shipped 500,000 bnshela of wheat, being an
average or 29 bushcia per acre, aud iu the
season just pawed 900 coo bushels of wheat
being an aveiageof rj bushels per acre, be
sides 200,000 bushels of flax. Write to your
friends in this district, or send to me for ra
map and pamphlet showing the lai ds I stifi
have for sale at the above prices. Vou cannot
help but be impressed by the prospects. It
is worth figuring out.

f We can't see why the United States
senate should object to Senator-elect
Smoot from taking his seat A large
minority of the present senate are just
as much polygamists in practice as
Senator Smoot. Nebraska can boast of
having one senator of that grade.
'The beef trust has been prosecuted
because the easf buys beef of, the
west,' but the oil trust goes free be
cause the east sells, oil to the west
So It is through and through, the east
wants free trade for what they buy
and a high tariff for what they sell.
Dear senators, ' kill the anti-trust
bill if you want another million of
my money to carry the next election.
Remember I am a rocky fellow.
Typhoid fever came near breaking
up the state university at Ithaca, N.
Y., a few days ago. The cause of the
disease seemed to be in the water
used. Lincoln can boast of as pure
water as any city in America. ' Dead
hogs and dogs cannot be thrown into
the supply a hundred feet under the
groundneither can the sewer filth of
the city get down so deep. '
Is It not a little queer that the
whisky republicans should call out
seven or eight hundred republican
voters, at their late primaries, who
dW not register or vote last fall. Will
all of them be allowed to vote at the
coming election? If their number
should double we would heed an extra
city clek to help issue voting certifi
cates. It looks as though the time
had come to put up ; a non-partisan
ticket National party questions have
nothing to do with city interest
Home questions alone should rule.
The two riotous street trolley
strikes in South Bend, Ind., and Wa
terbury, Conn., are still burning. Has
it got to come to this that a few hun
dred men can organize themselves in
to an army of marauders and override
all laws and ordinances?. Will clubs,
stones, .brick bats and. explosives be
their extreme, after a little, or will
they resort to fire arms and guerilla
warfare? The cause of one of these
strikes was the dismissal of two or
three saloon frequenters. So It goes,
more and more trouble. Hundreds of
men stand ready to fill all these ..well
paying places. Citizens, of all classes,
seem to stand up for the strikers and
justify their law-breaking.
There seems to be no remedy in
sight, only for cities, states and na
tions to own and control all public
utilities. Certainly, socialists are
making some tracks in the right direc
tion. The mine owners are making
ten times more out of the coal strike
than the coal diggers. Compare fif
teen dollars a ton in the city of Lin
coln with eight, and tell us who pock
ets the difference. Cities better pay
rental for street cars and let them
stand still, than to pay the expense
and damage on both sides of a strike
war. When government owns all these
utilities, let the employes be appointed
for life, then strikers will stop striking.

There were two men and two women
who started in life a few years before
we did, who had more influence in the
formation of our character, sentiment
and plan of life than all other men
and women not connected with our
early home. These four were Horace
Greeley, Wendell Philips, Susan B.
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
All have gone over the snowy range
except Susan. Each of the four pulled
separate strings and not a string has
broken. Susan's string has stretched,
but it still holds. - .
It don't look as 'though our legis
lature or congress was likely to do
any legislating only in the interest of
corporations and trusts. Equat rights
and justice are suspended. The tune
played is to tax the common people
and relieve the wealthy.

' The Bellwood Gazette says that the
Farmers' Co-operative association at
Bellwood shipped a car of wheat to
the P. P. Williams Grain company at
St Louis and realized 6 cents a
bushel more than the trust elevators
were paying. But Williams discovered
that the shippers are not "regular"
and warns them that "we cannot take
any more shipments except through
the regular dealer in your city." The
Gazette thinks it time for the farm
ers to try standing up for 'Betsy and
In a recent editorial the World
Herald asked the legislators to "Stand
by Brady" and his bill for side-tracks
to farmers' elevators. This inspired

Herald a commendatory letter. In
this he incidentally very neatly re
moves the cuticle from one R. B.
Schneider, a grain trust man and
high muck-a-muck in the republican
party. Schneider appeared before the
committee having Brady's bill in
charge and asked that it be killed be
cause the grain elevator trust has
large investments in elevators and if
the farmers enter the grain shipping
arena it will mean a depreciation of
the value of the trust property. Vin
cent showed that the farmers have
about 360 times as much invested as
has the elevator trust magnate who
serves them; that a sacrifice of 5 to 9
cents a bushel, because of no competi
tion, means a loss of over ten thou
sand dollars a year to each quarter
section, and he says: "The bandits
who have ' thus despoiled Nebraska
have the effrontery and gall to send a
lobby to the legislature, a majority of
which are farmers, and 'demand pro-tectlonV
