The s editor of the REPUBLICAN is

gave the situation Tvith 'reference to
the judgeship as it was at that time.
Other things entered into considera

THE ORGANIZATION OF THE LEGISLATURE.
TheJBrokcu Bow people , who' were
in Lincoln during the time taken up
by the organization of the Legislature
state that the Lincoln reports do not
indicate the real strength of the work
done by the Ouster connty people and
that Taylor was really stronger than
the reports indicate. They seem to
agree that the "booze" interests had
most ofthe , legislators where they
could have something to say about
who they voted for and the "railroad-
booze" combination had the work of
organizing.pretty we.l ) in hand all of
THE FREQUENT THEFTS.
The frequency with which small
thefts have occured in the city during
the last couple weeks is rather sur
prising. As to just why these things
take place and.the cujprits get away
is explained in different ways by dif-
fere"nt people. Some people think
that it shpws a lack of proper activity
on the 1 part , of Broken , Bow's , city
marshal while others' ' cqnsider 'that it
is a naturalftccurence.and , that it is
expecting toQ much of the city peace
officer to expect ? him to prevent the
the acts or catch the guilty parties ,

however , that the people who arc cut
ting up these capers are not any too
much afraid of the city marslkil and
that a little more aggressive vigilence

THE DEPOT TELEPHONE.
The manager of the local telephone
company states that the chances of
a telephone oeing put in at the depot
in the near future are very good. A
committee appointed by the officers of
the Commercial Club is working to
that end and their efforts give prom
ise of being successful.
$ 'PRESS COMMENT
Money In Better Hogs.
Twentieth Century Farmer : The
present high prices for feeds and the
prospect for continued high prices
for all kinds of grain that may be used
in growing and fattening hogs would
indicate that there must be some rem
edy for the hog grower in profitably
carrying on his business. Higher-
priced pork seems an inevitable result
of increased expense of pork produc
tion. Improvement in quality of
swine tending toward a lessening of
cost of production might also be taken
into consideration , and no doubt will
in the solution of the question.
All hogs do not equally utilize the
the feed consumed in the production
of pork. Some make more pork than
others from the same amount of food.
The better the hog the less the feed
cost in the production of a pound of
pork. This is thejnain principle up
on which hog improvement is based.
It is plain , therefore , from this prop
osition that a poor grade of hogs at
the present time are not aole to pay
expenses , say nothing about making
a profit on feed consumed.
Instead of the improved hog indus
try being curtailed in volume or out
put , there should be increased de
mand to meet the expediency of more
economical conversion of high-priced
feed into pork. The hog owner can
not afford to use the common hog to
market his corn. Corn is too high-
priced to be carelessly disposed of
through a machine that is not capable
of utilizing all its flesh forming prop
erties to the highest possible de
The only intelligent course for the
corn raiser and the hog grower is to
dispose of , as quickly as possible , all
common and low-grade hogs and se-
cnre breeding sto of the best pure
bred pork-producing type , and con
tinue right along raising hogs for the
market. Prices for pork and pork
products will adjust themselves from
time to time so as to create a demand
for the live hog from the feed lot at a
cost that will justify the use of corn
in growing the hog4 Get better hogs.
It will pay you , evenofi ypu pay good
prices for the Breeding stock and sell
all your produce to the pork market.
There is no excuse , now for the
common hog raiser to continue in the
production and feeding of a poor , or
even a common , grade of hogs on his
farm. The pure-bred hog sales now
taking place over the country afiords
abundant opportunity for the stock
ing up with the very best of breeding
swine at very reasonable prices ;
prices that appeal to everyone at all
interested in hogs , except the pure
bred breeder , who must feel that his
time , investment and feed is being
poorly served at present prices.
Salary Increase ,
Grand Island Indpi endent : There
is good reason to believethal Hie large
majority of citizens of the country
would like to see congress take up
Senator Bourne's bill to increase the
salary of the president to 8100,000
and that of the vice-president to S25-
000 per annum and make a special ef
fort to pass it promptly and by a
unanimous vote. The demands upon
the chief executive of the country
are generally accepted to be such
that a salnry of $50,000 , considering
all of the circumstances , is wholly in
adequate , as is likewise that of S8.000
for the vice-president.
Flic Oklahoma Way ,
Lincoln Star : Reports from Okla
homa on the working of the new
guaranty law in that slate ; are not
very reassuring to the friends of that
law. Numerous things are happen
ing down there that could never take
place in Nebiaska under our present
For instance , one man who has al
ready failed in business twice , once
in his own name iiiid once in his wife's
-has practically complctcl arrange
ments to start about lif teen new banks
in the state under the guarantee sys
tem , In Nebraska such a banker
would get no deposits whatever and ,
therefore , cQuld never get into the
business , but in Oklahoma his depos
its are just as safe as the oldest and
most conservative banker's in that
region. He practically has insured
for him a line of deposits many times
his capital , with which to speculate.
Another report comes of the start
ing of a fourth bank'in a town of less
than one thousand people. Anyone
knows that four banks cannot make
money in a town-pf .that size and do a
conservative business. The Oklaho
ma state banking board held the same
opinion and endeavored to keep the
fourth bank from starting , but the
banker appealed' to the courts and
.they rendered a decision in his favor ,
stating that all the power the banking
board had was to see that the papers
were properly executed.
Another banker advertised that he
would pay 8 per cent on deposits.
For this he was "called down" by the
state banld g board. In the next
week's paper he advertised that his
bank would pay 4 per cent interest ,
and that he would pav the other 4
per cent out of his own pock.t. :
The lime is coming , and not far is-
tant , when Oklahoma will rue the day
she passed herguarmty law. Is it
possible that Nebraska , the most in
tellectual state in the union , is going
to be carried off her feet completely
and enact such an absurb law.
Orel Quiz : Congressman Kinkaid
has intioducecl a bill providing for the
return of the postal note , .which used
to do business in the posloffices j'ears
ago. For several rears the little in
nocent and worthless piecf of public
utility has been out of business for
the public was deceived by it and fin
ally quit using them very generally.
Kinkaid's proposition , however , is
different , for 'he new postal note , if
made to do business , will be secure ,
the chief difference between it and
the money order being that no advice
is issued by the issuing postmaster.
But the order will be payable to a cer
tain person and so will be secure.
3 earney Hub : The fear expressed
by opponents of the postal savings
bank that it will work hardships on
present banks is not well founded ,
for there is nothing to indicate that
it will interfere with regular banking
lines 10 a great extent. Postal s iv-
ings accounts can not be checked
against as can commercial bank ac-
counta so it follows that not only all
checking accounts must be kept in
the commercial banks * but that all
large time depositors must use them
because of the limitations to the
amounts that may be deposited in
ill postal banks. That present banks
will be affected somewhat at first is
natural to suppose , but that any per
manent injury will be inflicted is
