AT the usual ratio of apportionment of
one delegate for each county and one
additional delegate for each 100 votes
cast for presidential electors the coming
state convention of Nebraska republi
cans will have a membership of nearly
1300 , being larger than ever before.
This , of course , is due to the fact that
the presidential contest drew out every

THE United States is not the only
nation in the world that feels interested
over the growth of large fortunes. A
bill has been introduced in the French
assembly providing for an official inves
tigation into the means by which every
estate worth a million dollars or more
has been accumulated. The presump
tion is that any fortune that seems to
have been collected with indecent haste
will be taxed a good round sum as a dis

AN important decision by the United
States district court in Iowa in an in
surance case has escaped much public
attention. Some life insurance policies
contain an anti-suicide clause , rendering
the contract void whether the person of
the second part is sane or insane when
he commits suicide. The court holds
that this agreement is without effect , as
it is not possible for a sane man to agree
not to do certain things if he becomes
insane. This is good sense and ought to
be good law.
PERHAPS America has never experi
enced a time in her history not even
in the days of the Salem witchcraft
when magic and mystery so-called
\vere so widespread and rampant. It is
\vell-nigh appalling to note that appar
ently nothing is so fantastic and improb
able but that a clever and conscienceless
operator can draw after him a large and
devoted following. The memory of man
runneth not back to the time when more"
sects flourished , when more "new" ideas
of being , here and hereafter , were cur
rent , when more "new gospels" of life ,
physical and mental , were promulgated.
Indeed the whole world around they
seem to be seeking new processes of
securing health and physical vigor by
other than those of proper food , sufficient
out-of-door exercise and due relaxation.
The seeking is for something "new , " in
religion , in the mental and physical
sciences , and common sense , one of
God's rarest and richest gifts to man
kind seems to have been relegated to the
scrappile. Ignorance of natural phe
nomena in the middle ages may account
for much of the belief in signs , omens
and superstitions , but it is not uncom
mon in this day of the wild and wierd in
mental phenomena to see the educated
and cultivated out-Herod Herod in pro
fundity of depth of credulity. Truly ,
there seems to be some room for the
question , "Whether are we drifting ? "

To Consider Irrigation Bill.
Congressman Burkett will issue a call
for a meeting of western congressmen
and senators in Washington. D. C. , a few
days prior to the opening of the next
session of congress for the purpose of
considering the irrigation bill recently
recommended for passage by the state
engineers at a meeting in Cheyenne ,
Wyo. Several congressmen were present
at the meeting in Cheyenne and endorsed
the bill and it is believed that it will
meet with the approval of the confer
ence to be called by Mr. Burkett.
"To begin with this bill which we pre
pared at Cheyenne provides that all
moneys received from the sale or dis
posal of government lands in the western
states shall be set aside and appropriated
for the survey and construction of res
ervoirs and other irrigation works , "
said State Engineer Dobson today.
"The states included are Arizona , Cali
fornia , Colorado , Idaho , Kansas , Mon
tana , Nevada , New Mexico , North Da
kota , Oregon , South Dakota , Utah ,
Washington and Wyoming. Moneys de
rived from educational lands are of
course excepted from the provision.
Any of the states named in the bill desir
ing to take advantage of the benefits
offered shall enact a law accepting it and
shall create the office of state engineer.
This engineer may be authorized to
make examinations and surveys , plans
and estimates for reservoirs and other
irrigation works and the law adopted by
the state must provide for the super
vision and control of such works.
ARID LAND RECLAMATION.
"The money appropriated by the nat
ional government will go first into what
is termed the 'arid land reclamation
fund' and shall be under the direction
and supervision of the secretary of the
"One proposition made at the meet
ing , not by a state engineer , however ,
called for an appropriation by the
national government of over $150.000-
ooo. It was generally conceded by the
engineers , as well as by the congress
men , that such a demand would be
promptly rejected by congress. Here
tofore the western rep'resentatives have
not only disagreed with the easterners
on the subject of irrigation , but they i
have been unable to agree among them
selves. At the meeting in Cheyenne ]
there was a greater unanimity , however , I
than at any previous meeting and we have \
reason to believe that the bill we drafted 1f
there will receive favorable and general f
support. " 1

About Sugar Beets.
Reports reaching this office concern
ing the condition of the sugar beet crop
are very encouraging and satisfactory.
For instance , William Byfield has ten
acres in prime condition and promising
very satisfactory returns. David
Deveney , a divide farmer , has seven
acres in good form. Experts claim that
lie will realize $35 per acre on his crop.
W. E. Bower , who lost so heavily by the
hail storm , last week , also had his seven
acres of beets pounded into the ground ,
but the beets are coming on again at a
rate which truly "beats the band , " and
his sugar beet crop will be O. K. if the
liail did shorten his wheat crop byiooo
Dr more. The vital part of the sugar
beet crop being out of sight , hail has no
terror for tLe beet sugar raiser. Horatio
Stone is also handling a large acreage
ind promises to be at the head of the
procession at harvest time.
Sugar beet raising may now be consid
ered as passed the experimental stage ,
ind should be followed much more ex
tensively in the future.

DEADWOOD , S. D. , June 23. ( Special. )
It has been definitely decided by the

iger , ex-Senator Manderson , solicitor

ECills & Ft. Pierre Railway company
rom Eaglewood as far as Galena siding , i
ind from that point a new roadbed will
e made into Galena. The Burlington
ompany has about 100 men at work at
he present time on the new road. The
ilkhorn company will now , in all prob
ability , build in , too. This company's
urvey starts at a point below the smelter ,
n this city and there will be more new
oads to build than by the Burlington. , ,

NEW YORK , June 25. The divorce

gainst Dr. Robert Campbell , a wealthy D

ime in order to take the depositions of
laterial witness in Nebraska , among :
thers that of former County Judge >

Justice Dickey says the case is one
rhich required the presence of every

Alliance , was down looking over the
shops , Wednesday. R. B. A. always
takes pleasure and satisfaction in show
ing J. P. R. a real shop and R. B. A.
thinks the McCook shops are "it. "
The Chronicle'of Wednesday says :
It is reported here that the officers of
railroads in the different combinations
located in all principal cities throughout
the country will be consolidated. The
report if revived in connection with the
Morgan-Hill syndicate operations. It is
said that wherever separate offices are
now maintained by the Great Northern ,
Northern Pacific and Burlington joint
offices will be substituted. After the
consolidation of the line under the same
ownership thousands of solicitors , freight
and passenger agents will be eliminated
in the interest of economy.
General Manager G. W. Holdrege likes
Nebraska and the Burlington too well to
accept the general managership of the
Q.lines in Illinois and Iowa , made vacant
by the resignation of General Manager
W. C. Brown , who will become vice-
president and general manager of the
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern , July
ist. Mr. Holdrege has been very closely
connected with the building of the Burl
ington and its extensions , not to say
with the development of Nebraska , and
it is with a measure of pride we note his
expressed preference to remain with the
Burlington and in Nebraska. F. A.
Delano o f Chicago , sup't of motive
power on the Q , will succeed Mr. Brown ,
and Mr. Deems , first assistant to Mr.
Delano , steps up a notch ; and similar
promotions will occur all along the line
in the motive power department. The
executive department will remain un
changed and undisturbed.
The New York Central railway has
just put into service twenty new locomo
tives which are the largest passenger
engines in the world. They are expected
to make from 100 to 125 miles an hour
all the time. The length over all of the
monster is sixty-three feet , three and
three-fourths inches , while the engine
itself is thirty-four feet long. Seventy-
nine inches is the diameter of the drivers
and the roof of the cab is fifteen feet
from the ground. A feature of these
engines is the peculiar placing of their
ten wheels Behind the four drivers are
two smaller traction wheels under the
cab. These carry the bulk of the weight
of the cab and fire box in ordinary run
ning , but when on an up-grade with a
heavy load and drivers slipping a novel
new mechanism is brought into play.
The mere turning of a lever in the cab
switches five tons of weight from the
traction wheels to the drivers , giving the
latter the grip they need.
Boarding-car A3 is now undergoing
transformation into a sleeper and diner
for the wrecking-train. The front end
is being divided off for sleeping purposes ,
accommodations being provided for 24
men. The rear end is being changed
into a kitchen and
bined , with an 8-hole Acorn range , com
missary closets , ice-chest , sink , dining
table and the equipment complete for
cooking and serving meals. The car
will be repainted inside and out and all
the necessary conveniences will be pro
vided. The wrecking-train crexv is some
times put to to secure food and sleeping
facilities , as in such cases as the snow
blockade on the St. Francis branch ,
last winter , and this new car will pro
vide against the recurrence of such hard
ships and will equip the wrecking-traiu
in excellent shape for any emergency ,
rhe work is receiving the master me
chanic's personal attention and is a
source of no small satisfaction to him ,
is indeed are all the improvements in
iquipiuent on the Western division.
The opinion is gaining ground in rail-
oad circles that J. J. Hill will soon
iecure control of the Chicago Great
iVestern road and the Wisconsin Central
md will merge them with the Great
Northern and Northern Pacific systems.
Dhese two roads are virtually left orphans ,
lot being owned or controlled by any of
he big interests which now control
nest of the roads in the country. They
ire not strong enough to stand alone and
nake a successful fight against any of
he big combines , but at the same time
hey can inflict great injury for a time
ipon both the Hill and Harriman inter
ests if allowed to remain independent.
5o far as the Wisconsin Central is con-
erned it is quite certain that it will
econie the Chicago end of the Northern
'acific. The Chicago Great Western ,
trith the probable exception of that part >
if the line between Marshalltown and
Kansas City , will probably be amalga-
aated with the Burlington , and these
ill form the Chicago end of the Great
Northern. That part of the line of the
Jreat Western between Marshalltown
nd Kansas City will in all probability j
ie turned over to the Chicago and North-
res tern , to give the latter an indepen-
ent outlet to Kansas City , and prevent
from building a line of its own. V
