The Farmers Institute
Within the next wcclranother
session of the farmer's annual
institute will be held in this
city. We are glad to see the en
lightened interest taken in it.
Ours is an agricultural state.
The wealth of Nebraska depends
upon the products of its soil.
This is more nearly true of out-
state than of most any other
state. During- the recent finan
cial llnrry , the farmers of our
state escaped without a loss.
With cribs and granaries filled
with grain and farms well stock
ed with horses , cattle.sheep and
hogsthe prosperity of the farm
er is now to be envied more
The time has gone by when
tillers of the soil are looked
down upon because ot their oc
cupation. With our improved
markets , our rural telephones ,
and our rural delivery , and our
improved farm machinery , the
rural life has become the life of
No occupation holds out brigh
ter prospects to the young man
who is willing to labor and
economize than farming. On
the farm he is his own master.
He has the best that the earth
produces. He has his sea-on
for rest. With his finely bred
horses and eleg-ant carriages he
can make h s trip to town and
procure what he needs in his
home and return to a privacy
which no other life affords.

students dropped from the Leland -

Mr. Hryau made a special trip
without invitation , lie says , to
Louisville , Kentucky , to advise
the legislature of that state to
elect Beckham United States
Senator. He poured oil on the
troubled waters of old Kentucky
in an hours speech behind closed
doors , and still the waters
boil and Beckham is a private
citizen. A little more oil Mr.
Mayor Dahlman of- Omaha ,
disgraced not only his city , but
his state when he appeared in
the Water-way convention at
Sioux City in a drunken and
staggering condition. The idea
of the mayor of thegreat metrop
olis of Nebraska appearing before -
fore anT convention in such a
condition is repulsive to all
right minded people. We pre
dict that we shall hear nothing
more of Mayor Dahlman as a
candidate for governor of the
state of Nebraska.
The sentiment in favor of the
nomination of Mr. Talt forpresi-
dent is showing a steady growth.
No man before the public today ,
with the exception of the presi
dent , has such a splendid record
ot achievements as Mr. Tatt.
lie is a man of clean record.
Not one imputation can be
truthfully made against him.
He is honest , franlc , and out-
spnken. There is no disposition
on his paat to conceal his views
on any great public question.
By nominating him for presi
dent , which all signs now indi
cate will be done , the Republi
can party will retain its strong
hold on the confidence of the
The indebtedness of New York
City is nearly equal to the en.
tire national debt. It amounts
to several hundred dollars for
each family in the great metrop
olis. This burden must be
borne by the people , either in
the formjof increased taxation ,
or high rent. The tendency to
extravaganc-e is becoming too
common in the expenditure of
public money. With a little
more thought of economy , the
expense of our city , county ,
state , and national government
could be materially reduced and
the burden of taxation greatly
lessened. It is not he who
succeeds in expending the great
est sums of public money who is
the greatest benefactor , but it
is the officer who most judicially
expends it and keeps the ex
penditures within the public
The question of who shall

on who represents the state as
delegates. While there has
been several good names sugges
ted , there are none more deserv
ing of that honor than Mr.Allen
W. Field of Lincoln. Nebraska
would be honorably and ably
represented in him as a delegate
at large. Mr. Field is right on
the great national questions.
His sympathies are with the
people. His past record is good.
He is a ready talker and is well
fitted for such a position. Let
