THE indications , asve go to

THE \Dingley law continues to
do its duty despite the war rumors ,
which naturally affect business and
importations. The March receipts
exceed those o any month since
it went into effect , the customs re
ceipts for March being nearly 150
per cent in excess of those in its
THE money in circulation has
increased at the average rate of
§ 12,000,000 per month since the
Chicago platform of 1896 declared
that the circulation could not in
crease except through the free and
unlimited coinage of silver. It is
now greater than at any time in
the history of the country.
THE president's message and
the action of the house have
pushed the Cuban question along
to the crisis , which will in a day
culminate when the senate con
curs. The probabilities that hos
tilities will commence soon are
hourly growing more warlike. Lee
has returned from Havana and the
American minister pt Madrid is ex
pected to be called home any time.
War with Spam seems to be prac
IN the war between China and
Japan we used to read about the
terrible fighting , but it appears
that the Japanese lost only 739
killed outright and 230 .who died
subsequently of wounds received
in battle ; 3,148 of yellow feveVand
other diseases ; 3,009 were invalid
ed on account of wounds received
and 58,852 were invalided from
cholera and other diseases con
tracted during the campaign. Thus
it will be seen that while modern
destructive weapons slay their hun
dreds , disease slays its thousands.
It would'be the same , " only more
so , should we send an army of oc
cupation to Cuba.
" APPARENTLY the railroads have
decided to treac the Omaha Expo
sition a little better than the }
treated the World's Fair in Chi
cago. Tourists who wish to go to
Omaha for the summer can go to
aud returu for four-fiths of the reg
ular double fare. Those who are
content to limit their stay in
Omaha to thirty days or less can
go and come for one and oue-thirc
fares for the round trip. To attend
the opening ceremonies the rate i
still more liberal , being a single
fare for the round trip , or one cent
a mile for all living within 15C
miles of Omaha. In making these
concessions thus early the railway
managers have evidently profited
from their World's Fair experi-

Frank Moore had business re
lating to the Murphy estate in
Beaver City , last Tuesday.
The last day exercises at Frank
Moore's school were of a high or
der of merit. The members of
the school board and others made
addresses , and all enjoyed a treat
by the teacher , of oranges , candy ,
Easter Dav services at the M.
E. church were largely attended ,
quite a number coming up from
Wilsonville. The exercises were
not quite up to the standard owing
to the shortness of time taken in
preparation. Features worthy of
note were the address of Key.
Chrysler , and the two duets by
Mrs. L. D. Kimpton and Frank
Mrs. W. H. Epperly entertained
some of the members of the ladies'
aid society , last week.

Frank Carothers purchased a

The entertainment at the Spring
Creek school-house was all that
could be desired. The program
was interesting and also the music
which was given by Spaulding's
orchestra. Mr. Beach , their teach
er , has taught a very successful six
months' term in this district.
THE farmers who were alarmed ,
if any were so alarmed , by the as
sertions of the free-traders that the
adoption of the Dingley protective
tariff measure would disadvantageously -
ously aflWt our sales a Iroad , will
be interested to know that the Jan
uary exportations of pi oducts of ag
riculture amounted to $79,045,101 ,
an increase of more than § 12,000-
000 over January of the preceding
year under the Wilson law.

After a brief illness , succeeded
by a paralytic stroke , Chas. Fox
departed this life on Tuesday.
He had never altogether recovered
from a severe attack of typhoid
fever , last fall , and his final illness
was probably resultant from over
work before regaining the neces
sary physical strength. He was
very popular with all who knew
him and his untimely death is
greatly deplored by a large circle
of friends. The funeral services in
Prailaud church , on Wednesday ,
were conducted by EPV. G. B.
Mayfield of Culbertson , formerly
pastor of the deceased , and the at
tendance was very large. Inter
ment was made in the cemetery
adjoining the church.
