Senator l.orinn r may be innocent
of evil intent in the matter of his
election. Hut this much is certain
the "interests" that got him his bit
terly contested seat, and are now
moving heaven and earth to keep
him in it, are not innocent. A man
who lias such a pull on the moneyed
interests of the country may well
be regarded as, a questionable prop
osition. The interests of the com
mon people certainly demand his re
call. Money and innocence, like oil
and water, do not mix.
We are kinder than wo once were.
There is less cruelty towards the
dumb and helpless tilings about us.
The efforts of the organizations for
the prevention of unnecessary cruel
ty are having their effect. Man’s
most willing slave, the horse is enjoy
tug a respite. The birds are not so
generally abused as they once were.
Iflven the cat and the dog are accord
ed certain privileges because it is
becoming recognized more and more
that those humble creatures actually
have feelings. And creatures with
feeling claim our consideration.
Nebraska City lot tiro contract for
their new high school building to an
Omaha concern, yesterday for $44,760
Tho cost of the heating plant and
the furnishing which was given to
other contractors will bring the price
of the new building w< II up in
$60,000. This will not be without
interest to Tails City as wo also
have a serious school building proli
lorn before us. There is no more
important work before the people ill
any time, than the task of providing
adequately for the education of the
youth of tho community, ltefore
this other business can afford to
wait. Our boys and girls grow up
to manhood and womanhood whether
taught or not. It is for us to see
that they gt t every inducement to
grow wisely and well.
Falls City lias, for some time been
pressed for school accomodations. Tli
high school building is already crowd
ed. Tlio situation one year hence
when the children of the shops and
railroad people -apply cannot well
be described In advance. The nec
essity is upon us to do something be
fore that time comes, that will pro
vide needl’d ri lief. Why not use
the Central building as a ward school
and build a new high school in n
more central location. With the
center of population moving rapidly
toward the south, the present loca
tion of the high school is anything
but central. The present experience
which we are having because of lack
of houses, should teach us to pre
pare against the future.
Not much light has as yet been
thrown about the dark subject of the
coming spring election. There is a
very general plea for the divorcing
of the saloon issue from the elec
tion. The efforts to decide this
troublesome issue heretofore have
been anything but gratifying to both
factions. That the administration of
the city's affairs lias sufferedserious
ly as a consequence of the divided
state of affairs is evident to every
one. There is a growing sentiment
in favor of calling a truce, and by
common consent tabling this issue
until such future time as the people
may elect for its further considera
tion. In the mean time with the
saloon question out of the way, it
is believed that the people of Falls
Ciy can be united upon a strong and
thoroughly progressive platform, and
in support of an administration made
up of Falls City’s livest and most
aggressive citizens. No reasonable
person can find serious fault with
a plan like this. And Every fair
minded voter in town can throw his
support to it. All that remains to
be done is for the leaders of both fac
lions to get together in a spirit of
fairness and real magnanimity and
select a ticket that will fairly repre
sent both sides. This should not
appear unreasonable and aught not
present any serious difficulties.
CATTLE AND LUMBER
Concerning grains in general, Mr.
Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture, de
clares that the United States with
profit could take all the grains Can
ada has to sell, and devote its own
lands to less exhaustive crops. But
whether we realize it or not, grow
ing wheat for sale from our farms
can be only temporary. After a few
years the land refuses to yield profit
able crop*. Recuperative farming
must be re.sorti d to in ord< r to build
up a soil robbed by grain growing.
For this reason the older prairie
state farmers turned to grass, < orn,
and domestic animals us scon as
they could bring about the* change.
They buy their flour, and thereby
keep up the fertility of the soil.
The new departure has been bo prof
itable ttiat lands have risen in val
ue from $100 l o $2<S0 an acre. But
how, then, by admitting cattle free,
does the agreement help our farm
ers? In tills way: Canada cannot
turn to tiie production of beef and
pork as we can, because the more
northerly climate prevents a large
corn crop from being grown there.
Hut, witli cattle entering the United
States duty free, the American farm
er will l.e able to fatten them on
liis corn and sell them at a profit.
At prose lit, owing to the tendency to
split tiie ranches into homesteads,
there is a dearth of such cattle in
tills country. The rumor that our
meat trust lias had anything to do
with the framing of the Canadian
tariff limy be dismissed. The very
tiling; it wishes would be the r**el
proeal admission of free fresh and
cured meats. This, with its resul
tant domination of the Canadian
market by our packing interests, the
Dominion government would not
permit. The agreement further af
fects the farmer favorably by se
curing as the president points out,
the free listing of such important
agricultural products us cotton seed
oil, all kinds of fruit and vegetables,
seeds, baiter, and numerous oth
er items, in which the movement to
Canada from the United States is
much greater than from Canada to
the United States. Finally, as to
lumber, tiie agreement is also in
the interest of the farmer—that is to
say, the remission of $1,300,000 in
duties on rough lumber imported into
the I'niteil States by free-listing it
along with pickets and palings, and a
heavy reduction on dressed lumber,
laths, and shingles. Briefly stated,
the economic advantages proposed by
the agreement are: first, a regula
tion of the price's of very many nec
essary artic les generally consumed
by our people; second, in times of
scarcity, a tendency io keep prices
down on particular article's; third,
by augmenting prosperity, an in
crease of purchasing power, and
hence an Increase of trade
