CORN , steers , hogs , beef , mutton , eggs ,

April. The farmer is still getting a
share of the general prosperity.
IN order to secure employment at
their trade the hundreds of shipbuilders
in the district represented ( ? ) by John
F. Fitzgerald in congress will be com
pelled to go to England that is , if his
policy of free ships should , ever be
adopted by congress.
A SHOVBI , cost 6j cents more last
year than in 1896. Corn was I4"ceuts a
bushel higher , so that the farmer could
buy two shovels , last year , and the only
additional cost would be his extra profit
on two bushels of corn. Even then he
would still have a cent left to put in the

readers of the west ; is for home ( New
York ) consumption.
BEFORE Representative Fitzgerald of
.Boston became a Democratic "leader"
lie used to declare that he favored pro
tection for American ships in competi
tion with foreign ships. Now , in order
to show that he is a "leader , " he has
been compelled to right-about-face and
oppose protection and advocate free
THE Fusion convention of the Fifth
congressional district will be held in
Holdrege on the aad day of August. A
lively time may be confidently expected
The minority Democrats will insist that
its their turn now , while the great ma
jority Populists will naturally demand
WHII.E the discussion goes on as to
whether congress shall come to the re
lief of American shipping by passing
the pending subsidy bill , the foreign
shipping doing 92 per cent of our foreign
carrying keep right on taking $200,000-
ooo a year out of the United States
about as much as is annually collected
at all of our custom houses.
DURING the first four months of this
year railway earnings for the whole
country were 15 8 per cent larger than
in the corresponding months of 1899.
In the same months of 1898 there was an
increase of 15 per cent over the earnings
of 1897. In 1899 the increase was 4.5
per cent over 1898. Business has kept
on steadily improving ever since Pres
ident McKinley was inaugurated.
COLORADO'S bank deposits have more
than doubled in five years , increasing
from $9,379.733 " l894 to $20,058,377 iu
1899. The number of people who had
bank accounts increased in the same
time from 18,532 up to 30,047. This can
be credited up to McKinley prosperity ,
and accounts in part for the fact that
thousands of Colorado men who left the
Republican party in 1896 are returning
ACCORDING to the Omaha Bryan or
gan the turning down of Congressman
Sutherland in the Fifth district is al
ready assured and the fight will be be
tween Judge Shellenberger as the Fusion
candidate and W. S. Morlan as the Re
publican nominee. If this is correct
Congressman Sutherland will soon be
able to add a sting of ingratitude to his
collection of political relics. Omaha
UNDER the American administration
of Porto Rico the old Spanish taxes are
being gradually abolished. The con
sumption tax , landing and transportation
charges are now done away with on pe
troleum , charcoal , fire wood , , fresh beef ,
veal , pork and mutton , fowls and eggs ,
fruits , vegetables , flour , cornmeal , bread ,
rice , beans , salt pork , ham , bacon , fresh
fish , codfish , herring , soup paste , dried
beef , sugar , molasses and coffee. The
Porto Ricans will now be able to take a
bite without being taxed for it , and they
will soon be able to enjoy the privilege
of a free square meal , paying less in
taxes and having more money for food.
ALL good and patriotic citizens deplore
the humiliating developments of fraud
and embezzlement in the Havana post-
office and note with satisfaction the ef
forts being put forth by the administra
tion to bring the perpetrators , those who
have outraged the confidence of the pres
ident and his advisers , to a full account
ing. And yet , the public should not be
unmindful of the other fact that Uncle
Sam's postal and money order system
is unparalleled for magnitude and hon
esty of management on the face of the
globe ; and this honesty is doubtless the
result of good character rather than fear
of detection , as the few scores of inspect
ors cannot possibly cover completely , no
matter how diligent , the 70,000 post-
offices and hundreds of thousands of
post-routes in the country. The loss on
17,000,000 pieces of mail matter , esti
mated value $500,000,000 , is not above
1-1,000 of I per cent. Two billion ordi
nary letters , valued at almost $500,000-
ooo , are carried annually at an estimated
loss of 77-10,000 of i per cent. The rec
ord is absolutely unequaled.

THE Illinois Republicans have ruined
a large batch of Democratic expectations
by holding a harmonious convention
and placing an excellent ticket in the
field. The indications are that this is
going to be a record-breaking year for
BIRMINGHAM is shipping three train
loads of pig iron per day to New Orleans ,
where it is loaded on vessels for the
foreign trade. This in a measure ac
counts for the expansion sentiment in
Alabama. The only regret in this con
nection is found in the fact that the out
put of the Birmingham furnaces is car
ried abroad in foreign bottoms.
REPUBLICANS are willing that the
United States government should con
tribute to the upbuilding of an American
merchant marine , so that the ships em
ployed in doing our import and export
carrying may be built by Americans in
home shipyards. Democrats , on the
other hand , favor the purchase of ships
built abroad by aliens , chiefly the

The little insurgent editor announces that
he is so evenly balanced on the political
tight-rope that it wont take much to pull him
either way. But no one feels rash enough to
throw the weight of a feather into the balance ,
He and his leather-lunged compatriot of the
Inter-Ocean are disturbing elements in every
activity and expression of life , and their polit
ical company is little sought.
Your correspondent notes that the Reporter
blacksmith shop has been awarded the print
ing of the premium lists for the fall meeting
of the Red Willow County Agricultural soci
ety. This insures the usual , diabolical job.
The management of the agricultural society
seems to abhore the very idea of having pre
sentable job-work at a white man's price.
The management needs to broaden out in
several particulars , if they hope to organize
and pull out a successful county fair.

Judging from the size of the crowd that at

likewise , Danbury can boast of one good line

and the entertainment of the day consisted of
telling stories and jokes of their boy and girl

Miss Maud Ruby's essay , "We Learn by Our
Failures , " was very appropriately arranged
and spoken , based on actual facts. "The
Uses of the Ocean. " by Ray B. Ryan , showed
that he has spent his time in the school-room
to a good advantage ; his essay was full of up-
to-date events , explaining the use of the water
in a creditable manner. Geo. A. Whitaker's
Essay on "Our Heroes , " received close atten
tion , was instructive to the old and young , he-
ing full of history and logical thoughts. Miss
Pearl Hayes read the "Past , Present and Fut
ure Life of the Class , " which was composed
of funny jokes as well as good tidings for the
class , including herself ; but , she will remain
an old maid ( ? ) . The presentation of diplo
mas by Philip Gliem was neatly done ; he
made the class a very impressive talk , one
that will be a guide to them in future studies.
The other parts of the evening's entertain
ment were well rendered , especially the
ladies quartet , composed of Misses Louie
Ruby and Sophia Wright and Mrs. Gertie
Pate and .Mrs. Pheme Bariteau , who received
a hearty cheer from the crowd.
