- * 8 J/n m ' By F. M. KIMMELL. OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER TiiE president's formal declara tion o war with Spain lets tli the dogs of war loose for keeps. IT only took a small American fleet eighteen minutes by tin watch to reduce the fortifications of'the important city of Man tan- zas. ' THE exports of agriculture pro ducts in the eight months since the Diugley law went into opera tion are more than those of any full year during the operations of the Wilson law , despite the asser tion of the free traders that the ' high tariff rates of the Dingley law would destroy our foreign markets for American products. WITH gold flowing into the United States at the rate of a mil lion dollars a day ; with a total gold circulation in the country of 1 T § 130,000,000 greater than it was at the date of the Chicago conven tion , with gold mines of the world turning out more of the yellow metal this year than ever before , the silver argument is not likely to be a very impressive one , if of fered in the coming campaign. THE Republican leaders in Con gress , under President McKinley's administration , are preparing to make the proposed new war loan , one to which every man who has fifty dollars to invest , may sub i scribe. The bonds are to ba issued in sums of fifty dollars and upward ; such facilities are to be given that people who desire , may subscribe through post offices , banks , sub- treasuries , or by sending checks , post office orders , or registered let ters , and if the subscriptions ex ceed the amount of the bonds , as is likely to be the case , the "scal ing down" process will be applied only to those whose bids are above one thousand dollars in amount. THE forty days which have elapsed since the Spanish-Cuban situation made war a probability , have been precious to the United States Government in the matter of preparation. The country has has been for years notoriously un prepared for war , and to have rushed into war six weeks ago without preparation would have been criminal. President McKinley - ley has shown great wisdom in holding out against the demands of politicians and sensationalists for instant action , knowing , as he did , how absolutely essential it waste to have a reasonable amount of time in which to prepare for war. STEEL manufacturers of pro tective America have just won a big victory over those of free trade England , and that , too , under the British flag. The Australian Com missioner of Railways , desiring to relay portions of existing railway lines with new steel rails , asked of fers from manufacturers in various parts of the world , and received bids from Germany , England , and the United States. When these bids were opened , it was found that those from the United States were lower than those from Ger many or England , and the con tract , amounting to nearly half a million dollars was awarded to one of the American bidders , the Penn sylvania Steel Company , its bid being nearly $20,000 lower than any other. THE railroads have made re duced rates for the Exposition. For the opening ceremonies a rate of one cent a mile will be made from all points within 150 miles of Omaha. From points beyond the 150 mile limit the rate will be one fare for the round trip. All tickets of every character through Omaha , in either direction will be made good for stopover at Omaha not to exceed five days. Summer tourist tickets will be sold at 80 per cent of double locals to Omaha from all sections of the country with final return limit on Nov. 15th. From all association points east of Colorado a rate of one fare and a third of the round trip will be made from June 1st until Oc tober 1st , with a thirty days re turn limit.

Clint Kelley was in this neigh borhood hunting for a sod corn plantei. one day last week. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Dodge and son Cassius were visiting with Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Relph and family , Sunday. Judging from the amount of prairie that is being broken , con fidence in this country has re turned with the general prosperity. Rev. J. M. Bell preached at the Pleasant Prairie school-house last Sunday , but owing to the United Brethren quarterly meeting at Fowler's school-house the same hour , the congregation was rather small. AFTER a splendid and invaluable public service covering a half cen tury. Hon. John Sherman on Tues day retired from the president's cabinet andhas , been succeeded by Assistant Secretary of State Day. THE silencing of the Mantanzas batteries proves the effectiveness of American marksmanship and the impoteiicy of Spanish gunnery.
