IT is claimed that one-third of

THE sugar beet plant at Grand
Island is in full blast grinding out
over three hundred tons of beets
per day. The beets are yielding
from fifteen to seventeen , per cent
sugar , while the beets in France
average but thirteen or fourteen
per cent sugar. The outcome ex
ceeds the expectations of the san
guine manager Mr. Oxnard. The
supply of beets is altogether inad
equate to keep the factory running
all the time.
EX-GOVERNOR FURNAS has be

world's fair commission through
the absence in Europe of Commis-

three members of the commission
and two members of the executive

an active member at a time when

3JAND COMMISSIONER GROPF has
ordered a general curtailment of
expenses in all laud offices. The
decrease in the number of entries
as well as the receipts demands
economy iu expenditures. The
"xvork of the laud offices has actual
ly increased in the aggregate , while
ihe cost of maintenance , owing to
ihe increase in number and division
f labor , exceeds that of previous
years. .The present administration
is compelled to take up and deter
mine the countless number of con
tests and reheariugs hung up dur-
ingihe reign of Sparks , consequent
ly the laud department's record for

"burden of past negligence. So far
as the land offices doing less busi
ness now than under Sparks , the
actual work done has been largely
in excess , as appears from the rec
ord , which shows almost double
the number of cases disposed of
and patents issued during the first
jear of republican administration
lhan during the last year of Cleve
land's. Nevertheless , Judge Groff
proposes to enforce economy all
jalong the line.

FROM official returns from sixty-
one counties and reliable un9fficial
reports from fifteen more out of
ninety counties in the state Bich-
ards has 64,274 , Boyd has 67,781
and Powers has 64,580 for govern
or. The remaining state officers
upon the republican and independ
ent tickets run very close to the
vote on governor. It will take the
official count in the ninety counties
to determine who is elected. The
counties from which no returns ,
official or unofficial , have been re
ceived are the following : Arthur ,
Banner , Cheyenne , Duell , Frontier ,
Gosper , Hayes , Logan , Keya Paha ,
Rock , Sheridan , Wheeler , Hooker
and McPherson. These are all
western counties and from the re
ports already ju from other west
ern counties it is evident that Boyd
is not receiving to exceed 10 per
cent of the total votes in these coun
ties. The counties above named
will cast about 10,000 to 12,000
votes , of which Boyd will not poll
to exceed 10 per cent. The remain
der will be about equally divided
between Richards and Powers ,
with the chances in favor of Rich
ards. The republican state cen
tral committee believe that the of
ficial count of all the counties will
elect L. D. Richards the next gov
ernor of Nebraska , and it is almost
a certainty now that the balance
of the republican state ticket is
safely elected. Let no one get ex
cited , but calmly await the complete
official count. WALT M. SEELY ,
Secretary Republican State Central
CHAUNCEY M. DEPEW dined with
a lot of prominent New Yorkers
the other day , of all political shades ,
and they had a jolly time , no
speeches being reported. There
upon some democratic fraud who
was present made up a speech for
Chauncey who introduced Grover
Cleveland to the company in accord
ance with the arrangement that
gentlemen of opposite politics
should toast each other , in which
Depew is represented to have call
ed Grover "the typical American"
and otherwise covered him with
fulsome eulogy. Being interview
ed afterwards Mr. Depew laughed
a good deal at the fake. He said
he had spoken of Grover in a good
natured way as a man who had
made the largest political jump in
the history of the country in three
years and had managed to get the
good Avill of his party in the presi
dential chair , but it was General
Sherman he had spoken of as "the
typical American" and not the all
too fat Grover. Mr. Cleveland
will not be very proud of the feat
of his democratic admirer who
stole Depew's eulogy of Sherman
and gave it to Grover. Journal.
THE last obstacle in the way of
the certain success of the Colum
bian exposition was swept aside by
the voters of Chicago on Tuesday.
There is now plenty of money be
hind the big fair. It will be a
success. The president will imme
diately invite exhibits from foreign
countries , and the people of the
United States will prepare to make
it a great exposition of the wealth
and resources of their great coun
try. Nothing can now stop the
world's fair movement. It is fair
ly launched and national pride
makes it necessary for us to see
that it is an affair worthy of one
of the chief nations of the world.
