Washington dispatch: Ex-Senator
Manderson of Nebraska, in an Inter
view, admitted that ho was in the
hands of his friends as a candidate for
the presidential nomination before tho
republican convention nt St. Louis.
For months .Mr. Manderson has been
the recipient of letters from nil parts
.,. i i .!. ... .. l.
of tho country urging him to enter the
contest. Tne insistence, ho said, scorn
ed to become moro persistent with his
expressions of disinclination mid before
leaving Nebraska he stated that he
would mnko no further opposition, but
would remain passive.
Ceneral Manderson said tonight that
the various marks of confidence and
manifestations of endorsement which
j would bo apparent by the presenta
tion of his name at St. Louis are most
I grateful and acceptable. Ho has been
. greatly influenced by tho kindly ex
pressions of tho eastern press, particu
larly Pennsylvania, where ho wus
born, and Ohio, where his early miin-
I hood was spent. Under the circum
stances lie enn only stand anil wait.
Tho Now Irrigation I.utr.
As the tlmo approaches when the
new district Irrigation law becomes ef
fective by the organization of districts
nnd tho voting on this proposition a
number of questions of general inter
est to people contemplating such ac
' tiou nro being submitted to the state
officers. Ono of these is in relation to
who are eligihlo voters. Ono such in
quirer wonts to know If one living on a
homestead which he has tiled upon, but
on which he has not made limit proof,
Is a voter. Tho language of the act
itself on the subject of tho eligibility of
voters says: "No person shall be en
titled to vote at any election held un
der tho provisions of this act unless he
bhall be a qualified elector and the
owner of real estato in such district."
There seems to have been the ques
tion raised of whether the land can be
taxed beforelho government hab part
ed with the title and the tax levied
made a lien on the land. If the holder
of this kind of nn incompleted right of
ownership can.not bo held for his part
of tho expenses the farm owners who
have deeds to their lands say it would
be an injustice to others to
participate in tho voting
men t of the district.
Thrro. Irrigation DccIhIciiik.
Lincoln dispatch: The State board
of Irrigation filed three opinions today,
it found in favor of Andrew Carson,
who appealed as contestant against the
McCook Irrigating and Water company
of Ueil Willow county. Tho latter
company, comprising a large number
of people, intervened in the case be
fore tho board and claimed under
riparian common law procedure, but the
board decided nguinst it, and dismissed
the intervention as immaterial to the
case. Tho claim of K. P. James of
Chase county was dismissed. He had
sought to make appropriation of water
from Frenchman river for mill pur
poses, but tho board found his applica
tion deficient in detail. Tho claim of
the Republican River Irrigation com
pany as against J. 15. Phelan, K. F.
Highland, A. P. Ilcuno and It. Williams
was also dismissed on tho ground that
the contestant had not complied with
the law of 1880. This was a case from
Dundy county and involved rights to
water from the Republican river.

As the beet-raising and sugar-making
has proven a success throughout tho
htate of Nebraska, writes a correspond
ent to the State Journal, and most
everybody seems to feel that a lasting
success will bo made of it, especially
sinco that new process came in by
which they claim the cost of making
suirar Is greatly reduced, and if tho
plan is carried out to build factories in
different parts of tho state, allow mo
to propose a plan by which all thoso
aro mado safe who iniulit interest
themselves in this industry, and this is
as follows: Suppose It lakes S2.'.,0)0 to
erect such a factory as they say, it win
cover the cost ready to make sugar.
Now then, If it take that amount, or
whatever it may take, let twenty
five men each investing SI, 000, or
whatever sum it may take, so that no
man shall have n greater share than
the other, which will bring every stock
holder on nn even footing with tho
other, and no one has moro power than
the other, or in other words, freeze the
smaller stockholders out, which is gen
erally the ease where one or 'more have
the controlling power. It will also be
seen by this that in this way, such es
tablishments can bo run tend ought to
be run independently from any monop
oly or trust. As there is no danger of
over-stocking the marketwlth this pro
duct, any man 'who has any money to
spare is willing to invest in a safe busi
ness running under uueh management
where everyone is equal with the other.
I would like to have some opinion on
this subject from others.

to open the proceedings each day with
prayer. Tho ltev. C, J. Oelsehlaeger,
a German Lutheran minister, was in
vited to serve the house as chaplain
next week. Ho responded thus: "I
do not believe in opening a promiscu

character makes li an abuse of prayer,
and an unnatural union of church and
