It now seems probable- that the people
of Nebraska will have an opportunity at
the coming election of voting Upon
another amendment to the states ar

amendment proposed is to change

on the high consideration in which

Bkothekiiood is one of the dominant
strains in the worlds symphony Not
since the stars first sang together have
men realized the fact more generally or
more potentially than now Men are no
less social animals than religious beings
The twentieth century bids fair to be
known to fame as the lraternal century
of the ages Then there is the ten
dency which we hail with loudest ac
claim of a strenuous endeavor to real
ize here and now the full ripe fruits of
brotherhood of doing the kindly deed
and uttering the helpful gentle word
now when they can be appreciated in
the flesh and not waiting to place gar
lands upon the bier in memoriam and in
sympathy May this evident tendency
acquire an accumulating impetus and
more and more become the established
policy and habit of the craft For the
kindly charitable impulse there should
be no tomorrow Today is
Utilize it
Brotherhood is a fact in Natures plan
Then why be selfish fellow man
All were created by God above
Then let us live in brotherly love Bob
An ago of gigantic commercialism like
ours is naturally an age of selfishness
and next to the sweet teachings and
sweeter deeds of the mild and gentle
Nazarene nothing is so calculated to
soften the harsh and ofttimes cruel edge
of supreme endeavor and crushing com
petition as true fraternity raised to its
highest and best exponent of power and
utility We do not refer to fraternity or
brotherhood in the abstract but to its
concrete personal exhibition to a broth
erhood with hands and feet and heart
and soul for none other is of value or
worth while consisting of signs and
words emblems grips and cold barren
ritualism and lacking approach even to
the real thing the flesh and blood of
true humanity

How Our Territories Pay
Since the Mexican war rounded out
our continental domains we have mater
ially increased our national area but
twice first when wo purchased Alaska
and again when wo took Guam Porto
Rico the Philippines and Hawaii
This latest annexation like that of
Louisiana Florida Texas California
and Alaska has boen criticised as un
profitable Contemporary critics of
their own country while they did not
object to the annexations of Florida and
Alaska on the political grounds on which
thoy opposed those of Louisana Texas
California and the islands still cen
sured all as imposing burdens rather
than conferring benefits
Waiving any question of political
morality such men were want to say
it is evident that these new possessions
will cost more than thoy come to We
should not have taken them because
they will be a source of expense rather
than of gain And that argument
while long since proved false with re
gard to our older territories is still
urged against the retention of our
Some figures lately made public by
the treasury bureau of statistics indi
cate that the argument is being rapidly
falsified by facts with regard to our latest
acquisitions The annexation of non
contiguous territory has been de
nounced as a crime and an unprofitable
crime by a great political party Yet in
the last fiscal year these noncontigu
ous territories afforded a market for
850000000 worth of mainland products
or five times what they took in the fiscal
year 1897
Our exports to Alaska have grown
from 83900000 in 1897 to 815000000 in
1902 To Porto Rico the increase has
been from 819S8000 to 810000000 To
Hawaii the increase has been from lr
090000 to 820000000 and to the Philip
pines the growth has been from 895000
to 85000000 These figures it should

hary mercantile transactions
Nor is this benefit one sided Neither
directly or indirectly are wo levying
tribute on these possessions From
Alaska and Hawaii we collect practically
nothing for the national treasury for
the reason that nearly all their imports
come from the mainland From the
Philippines and Porto Rico the nation
receives no tax monev ac all All their
revenues go into their local treasuries
Furthermore our imports from these
possessions have grown from 825250000
in 1S97 to 853000000 in 1902 Our im
ports from Alaska were about S5000000
in 1897 and 815000000 in 1902 From
Porto Rico the increase has been from
82181000 to 8S000000 From Hawaii
it has been from 813687000 to 823000
000 From the Philippines it has been
from Sl3a3000 to 87000000 This total
trade of 8103000000 annually is in no
sense an exploitation of territorial
resources but benefits both parties as
all honest trade does And in addition
we are giving the islands real liberty
real advancement and real civilization

Another Heaviest Engine in the World
The building of heaviest engines re
minds us of the average railroad mans
story the last man has the edge How
ever the engine just recently built for
the Atchison Topeka Santa Fe Co
will for a while hold the belt It comes
from the Baldwin Works and is a shape
ly massive affair Its total weight is
267S00 pounds of which 237S00 pounds
are carried on the five driving axles
The next heaviest engine is also owned
by the Santa Fe was built at Schnec
tady and is but 8000 pounds lighter
than the Baldwin engine Tho actual
drawbar pull of the Baldwin engine
when working up to its full power say
at a speed of ten miles an hour is over 31
tons The engine is of the tandem
compound type with piston valves
The high pressure cylinder which has a
diameter of 19 inches in placed forward
of the low pressure cylinder which is 32
inches in diameter the two pistons be
ing carried upon a common piston rod
The stroke is 32 inches The high and
low pressure valves are also carried on a
common rod In addition to the regu
lar Westinghouse the engine has a back
pressure brake The ten driving wheels
are 57 inches in diameter The driving
axle journals measure 11x12 inches
The boiler however is the colossal
feature of the engine It is of the
wagon top type and carries a working
steam pressure of 225 pounds The
diameter of the barrel is 6 feet 64
inches Firebox 9 feet in length by 6
feet 4 inches vide with a depth at the
front of SO inches and at the back of 78
inches There are 463 tubes of 2J4
inches outside diameter which measure
19 feet in length over sheets Tne total
heating surface in the tubes is 51588
square feet the firebrick tubes having a
heating surface of 239 square feet while
the heating surface in the firebox is
2103 square feet The grate area is 5S5
square feet The tender has a capacity
of 7000 gallons of water An unusual
feature is a pair of cranes one on each
side of the smoke box for the purpose
of facilitating the removal of the high
pressure cylinder when it becomes ne
cessary to inspect either the high-pressure
piston or the piston rod packing be
tween the two cylinders

First Step Taken
Sterling Col July 23 Special
Telegraphic orders were received by the
local United States land office this morn
ing from the interior department at
Washington withdrawing S90 townships
embracing 900000 acres of land located
in Weld VVashington Logan and Sedg
wick counties in Colorado and Cheyenne
county Nebraska from public entry
This land is located on the north side of
the South Platte river and extends from
Snider to Julesburg into Nebraska
The significance of this move cannot
be overestimated It means that Hydro
grapher Newell who last Saturday in
spected in this section for a reservoir
site has recommended to the depart-
partment at Washington that this land
be set aside for the first great national
reservoir under the new irrigation law
Now that this vast erea has been with
drawn from entry the prelimiuary sur
vey will begin at once If this survey is
finally approved at Washington the
building of the reservoir by the govern
ment will be started

ment lor Ringliug Bros popular big

engages the services of over a thousand
men women and children and fully five
hundred thoroughbred horses There
are over a hundred magnificently carved

sections in which the parade is divided

circus The procession will leave the
show grounds at 10 oclock and tho

principal downtown streets Tho par
ado is a fitting introduction to the great
show that follows There will be two
complete performances The initial one
will take place at 2 oclock and the final
one at 8 p m The doors however will
be open one hour prior to the beginning
of the exhibition and tho menagerie
