willing to risk any money in the ca

chances of success
Colombia never enjoyed effective
sovereignty on the isthmus because
the United States landed troops there
whenever it wanted to and even de
nied Colombians the innocent right
to kill each other still in the canal
treaty Colombian sovereignty on the
isthmus should be distinctly recog
nized argues Senor Pulecio not ony
to calm the nerves of the apprehen
sive patriots but because Colombia
may within 100 or 200 years develop
into a strong nation and be able to
recover sovereignly on the isthmus

claimed by the railroad company un

Labor Bureau Issues Bulletin on Con
dition of Grain and Fruits
The labor bureau has issued a state
ment showing the condition of crops
and fruit With the report is a table
showing the inorcare and decrease in
the per cent of acreage put in wheat
oats rye alfalfaand corn The reports
said that if March and April had been
changed a normal season would have
ictulted but as it was the warm weath
er of March caused an early planting
cf oropt and the cold weather in April
injured them to some extent The
uporl follows
The average total precipitation for
yins t h for Nebraska was 072 inch and
for April 1C3 inch
Wheat prior to the cold weather of
April the appearance of wheat present
ed a 05 per cent condition This ap
plied to other crops of small grain
The prospects were for the largest per
cent yield in the history of the state
The wet weather of last fall caused a
decrease in the acreage that would
have been sown had it not been for
this wet weather
Corn For corn there will be an in
crease of 1086 per cent in the state
The prospects are excellent over the
entire state and the only fear expressed
is that the cold wet condition cf the
ground may continue which might
prevent germination
Oats For the oat crop there is re
ported a 676 per cent increase and a
028 per cent decrease giving a net
increase in the state of 648 per cent
This increase will occur mostly in the
south central counties
Rye There will be an increase in the
acreage cf rye of 328 per cent The
prospect is good and the condition of
the state crop is about 90 In the
eastern part it is better than this
Alfalfa Alfalfa is gaining friends
rapidly It has been thoroughly dem
onstrated in the west that alfalfa can
be grown without irrigation and the
result is a very great increase in acre
age each year This year it ranks first
in increase of acreage the increase be
ing 1979 per cent
