John Sherman , former Secretary of
State , is indignant over the report of

President McKinley were up for elec

inconsiderable number of votes. From
all that I can learn there is little en

few newspapers are supporting him/ '
This paper wishes to enter an em
phatic protest against the habit certain
members of the legislature haveof
'pairing' ' every week on the vote for
senator. Members were elected to the
legislature to work and vote , and not
to "pair" with sonic fellow who wants
to go home everv other day. Legisla
tors should stick to their knitting and
elect a senator.

The deficit of $112.000,000 announced
bv the secretary of the treasury needs
serious revising in several points. One
item in the correction should be a re

was paid into the treasury during the
year to buy Union Pacific and Kansas
Pacific railroads. That amount should
be added to the deficit of war ta < osand

The populist party of Nebraska will
doubtless take up the battle cry at the
next election and attempt to make
great political buncombe out oi the fact
that the anti-pass bills in the state legis
lature were defeated by the votes of the
republicans. Dawes County Journal
.Not political buncombe , but real
meritorious facts. The populists and
democrats have continually roted for
measures prohibiting "passes' * while
republicans always supported the same ,
and evidentally causes the Journal no
little amount of uneasiness.
Two bills in the legislature which
have been placed on general file , and
are especially interesting to our readers ,
are , 1st , a law to let the voters of a
county decide whether they want a
herd law or not. 2nd , a law repealing
section 1 of chapter 51 , requiring the
county clerk to keep a record of the
different brands , without which end
less litigation is sure to ensue. The
fact that these bills have been placed
on general file , is conclusive that they
are considered meritorious , and our
readers should not be slow in making
their desires known to our representa
Live Stock Notes ,
While in town last Saturday . W.
Ostrander of Rushville called at these
headquarters and chatted a few min
utes with the editor. Mr. Ostrander
has decided to offer a reward for in
formation leading to the arrest and
couvi2tion of any person or persons
stealing cattle with his brand , and has
had notice of ? 400 reward inserted
with his brand advertisement , the
"circle . " Speaking of the condition
of cattle , he said his stock was all in
fine condition , and he attributes this
to the fact that he doesn't use sheds
except for calves and cows about to
drop calves. lie is firmly convinced
ikat an animal which has to stav out in
all sorts of weather will come through
the winter in better shape than those
which have shelter. This ofcourse
does not app y to ranches where the
herds may be fed while under covi r ,
but to the ordinary ranch where stock
must go out for feed and water.
A prominent Chicago live stock com
mission mercliaat says : "There is no
probability of any oversupply of cattle
any time this side of May 1 , and there
is ever , ' indica ion that the demand
will keep in excess of the supply right
through the season. The prevailing
high prices during the last three
months have caused the shipment of
every steer that was anywhere near
ready , and a great many that ought to
have been fed several months longer.
This marketing has left the country
with lighter sto'-ks ' of marketable cattle
than any time in the last ten yearsand
I think the people who are advising
everybody to ship cattle "now" are
"guessing wild , " with nothing to war
rant such advice. The eft'ect of the
"embalmed beef" scandal has already
been nearly discounted , but it undoubt
edly was instrumental in breaking
prices last week. The public will
probably never know the "iiiMde
workings" of this case , but if the gov
ernment inspection had been as rigid
on meats furnished the army as it is on
meats furnished the export trade there
would have been no foundation for any
of the reports that have been scattered
broadcast over the country. ' '
The inferiority of southern cattle has
been a great draw back to that country
in the production of beef in competi
tion with northern cattle. None feel
this shortcoming more than do the
railroads throughout that section , and
they are inaugurating moves to remedy
the deficiency in at least one particular
better breeding. It behooves our
northern ranchers to guard well their
laurels lest they lose the place now held
in supplying the markets with beef
cattle , for season , cheaper labor and
freight rates are all in favor of the
southern cattle raiser. In referring to
the matter of improving stock in the
south the Iowa Homestead says : "The
Industrial Department of Sea Board
Air Line has inaugurated a plan to be
gin the work of improvement among
southern cattle by placing pure bred
bulls along the line of their road for
free use. To this end the department
has solicited the contribution of bulls
from breeders of the various improved
breeds , and the road undertakes to
place them along its line and move
them from time to time to new locali
ties , giving ample notice to the com
munities in other localities where pure
bred bulls are entirely too scarce and
where the individual holdings of "she
stock1 * arc too small to justify private
ownership of the right kind of bulls. "
A Kansas man has been in the Chicago
cage market recently buying a car-load
of good farm chunks to ship to that
state. Horses on the Kansas farms are
becoming scarce , and the shortage
seems to be general throughout the
state. Horses to ship to Kansas sell at
§ 50 to $75 per head , plain general-pur
pose chunks being wanted.
Martin Brothers solda few days ago ,
a drove of Oil ) head of 75-pound goats
to a Chicago slaughterer at $3.25 per
100 pounds. They were raised by
Watson Tyson , of Blair , Nebraska.
Mr. Blair is a large raiser of goats , and
has about 4,000 on his farm. They
were bred from goats from Oklahoma ,
New Mexico and Texas. Last year
Mr. Tyson fed 5,000 sheep , but he is
not feeding any now. A good many
goats are raised in Texas and the surrounding - J
rounding country , and large numbers
are marketed here. It costs little to
feed them , and they make fair profits
for their owners in sections where land j
is cheap. A few goats are bought for
children's pets , but most of them are
converted into a common grade of
"mutton. " No "goat meat" is ever
seen in the butcher shops.
The Colorado Cattle Company has
recently purchased 20,000 head of cattle
near Casas Graudes , 150 miles from El
Paso , in Mexico. They will be ship
ped to Denver this month. It is un
derstood that the amount of monev involved -
volved in the trade is about 50,000.
