The ivory market of the world is London. The product is brought from the east and the western coast of Africa, Cape Colony, Ceylon, India and the countries east of the straits of Malacca. But by far the largest amount is imported from Africa, and the total weight given by the British Board of Trade returns for two or three years ago was 9,414 hundred weight Land Commissioner Bubnuam is preparing some specimens of what Nebraska farmers and stock growers can do, which will be taken to the Boston exposition. One is a big ox skin stuffed. Also a Cotswold sheep, the skin of which has been prepared in the same way. Also a porker, which weighed when alive 1,100 lbs. Boston will open her eyes at the sight of these samples. Hattie School, daughter of a prominent citizen of Lancaster, Pa., died the other morning from the ef fects of an abortion claimed to have been committed by Dr. Brnce, of Philadelphia. Joseph Strieker, her alleged betrayer, is under arrest. The girl in her dying statement said that four other girls were under treatment at a house in Philadelphia where she was operated upon. Candidates for the next legislature may as well commit themselves now to the study of railway legislation. This will he the issue in the next state and congressional campaigns, and no candidate of any party can hope to be elected who is not in favor of some measure looking to a just and equita ble settlement of this great question between the railroads and the people. Patenee Republican. Sehatob Wilson, of Iowa, has in troduced a bill to establish a board of later-state commerce. This bill in jadgwast covers most of the 1 ground in controversy, if it can be done by providing a board of com missioners with jurisdiction over all qnestions relating to commerce be tween states, or between the United States and foreign countries, espe cially the matter of transportation, &c. Senaton Van Wyck has introduced a bill to secure reasonable rates of transportation over the railroads aid ed by the government. Mr. Van Wyck said he introduced it a9 a sub stitute for a similar one, which only covered the Union and Central Pa cific. The government has aided these roads, which were, as they are termed, "partitioning" among them the great empire stretching across the continent. It is stated that tho mountains of Gellivara, in the northern part of Sweden, consist of pure magnetic iron in immense layers of several hundred feet. One of these peaks alone is supposed to contain 280,000,000 tons. Largo forests are contiguous, and they are less than 100 miles from the Atlantic. A railroad is to be built, and it is estimated that the iron can be delivered on the seacoast at a cost of 50 cents per ton. An express train on the Cincinnati division of tho Toledo, Cincinnati and St. Louis railroad, consisting of seven coaches and a baggage car and engine, dashed off a long trestle twenty feet high, near Beavertown, Ohio, the other evening, causing a complete wreck. The accident was caused by the breaking of a truck wheel of the engine. There were twenty passen gers on board, five of whom were injured, some of them badly. Senator Van Wyck is unquestion ably the most effective worker Ne braska has ever had in congress. Hi foresight and shrewdness in matters pertaining to the needs of the country have never been equaled by any rep resentative from this state. His rep utation is as wide as the nation itself, and even though a decree has gone forth from the political bosses that he shall not succeed himself be will re ceive the gratitude of his constituen cy. Fremont Herald. A man by the name of Weatherby, of Dubuque, Iowa, the other night shot a peddler known as "Mosc the Jew," five times, inflicting probably fatal injuries. He had sold Sirs. Weatherby some goods and had called the next day by request, to get his pay, and she refused to pay him, and when ho demanded the goods back Weatherby appeared from behind a curtain and began to shoot. The peddlar has always borne a good rep utation, and some believe it was a "put up job." At Washington on the 17th the sub-committee of the house commit tee to which was referred the question of retaliation on countries discrimi nating against American .hog pro ducts, has decided to report in favor of Townshcnd's resolution, authoriz ing the president, during the session or recess of congress, to prohibit the importation of articles deleterious to public health from countries which, on the same grounds, prohibit the importation of any American goods. An attempt will be made to have it considered under suspension of the rules ou Monday. At Columbus.O., Jan. 17th Senator Elect Henry B. Payne gave a banquet to the members of the legislature. A number of speeches were made. Payne, In the course of his remarks, referred to civil service. He said it was like trying to clean Augean sta bles with a tooth brush. The only remedy was to elect a democratic presideut. He favored a tariff for revenue, limited to the necessities of the government, economically admin istered, and so adjusted as to encour age productive industry at home and afford a just compensation to labor without fostering monopolies. Senatob Van Wyck slaps a greedy mouth wherever be sees it open In the discussion of tho biil to create a territorial government tor Alaska, our senior senator objected to the U. S. marshal being paid pattly by sal ary and partly by fees, ou the ground that "marshals depending ou fees were liable to arrest people upon the flimsiest pretexts in order to create fees." His suggestion was adopted, and if the same policy were pursued down to the lowest office in the land, there would be less cause lor people to say that officials are taking more than honestly belongs to them. The fee business is a little too great a temptation to the average office holder. It is high time that the fee sys tem should be done away with among county officials in the various states. Every county office should be made a salaried office, aud the officials should not be allowed to have the benefit of one cent of the fees. Under our pres ent system several of the most im portant county officials in Nebraska receive salaries and at the 6ame time have the privilege of disbursing the fees of tbeir office. Every fee should be turned into the treasury, and a strict fee account kept by the different officials. There is no telling how much certain connty officials pocket over and above their fixed salaries. Omaha Bee. Gov. Dawes last week commuted the death penalty sentences of John Polin to be hanged at Plattsmouth on last Friday, and George Hart, whose execution was also set for Friday, at Grand Island, to that of life impris onment at hard labor in the peniten tiary. Judge Cobb, of the supremo court, in writing to Gov. Dawes in the Polin case, makes use of the fol lowing very strong language: "While it cannot be announced as law from the bench, yet it ia law which is ac knowledged by almost all people, whether savage or civilized, that he who take the life of a man whom be i believes guilty of violating the chas tity of his wife or daughter, ha an excuse which should shield him from tho extreme penalty of the law." The Lincoln Democrat thinks it knows a thing or two about republi can politicians. It says: "Senator Manderson is going to take Judge McCrary'a place; Joe Millard will take that of Mauderson by appoint ment, and judge Dundy is liable to stay where he is. Thus upon the legislature to be elected in November next, will devolve the task of electing a senator to fill Manderson's unex pired term, and that legislature is not going to elect Millard. General Man derson is better adapted to the beuch than to the senate; moreover, he knows a good thing when he sees it, and he has seen that vacancy. This, moreover, suits the U. P. and B. & M. railroads, it squelches the previous Fremonter, whose name is Dorsey." Besides the usual 'declaration of anti-monopoly principles at the re cent convention in Kearney, there was an outside organization suggest ed, and which is now being perfected to be called Nebraska Farmers, Merchants and Mechanics Protective Association, a joint-stock company designed to be a means of defense for stockholders against "fraudulent claims by patent right dealers; to en force the collection of just taxes and prevent the imposition of taxes for debt fraudulently created; for prose cution of claims for damages sustain ed by citizens of this state by excess ive transportation charges, injury to persons or property by railways in conveying passeugers and freight." Of course this sort of business com bination against monopoly rule will be sneered at by the railroad news paper cappers, as has already been seen, but if it means solid busiuess, it is a move in the right direction. The State Bee-keepers Association closed its fourth aunual session on the 17th at Lincoln. It was more largely attended than any previous meeting, over sixty delegates from other parts of the state were present, and several from Iowa. A large col lection of apiarian goods sent by manufacturers for exhibition. There were four different styles of honey extractors, as many more bellows smokers; comb fouudation, and sev eral different styles of hives and honey boxes; also honey and wax. Filtccn old members answered to their names, and forty-three signed the constitution. The treasury show ed a surplus of $30. A large amount of busiuees was disposed of and many questions discussed, together with the clccliou of tho following officers: T. S. Vondorn, Omaha, president; M. S. Trestcr, Lincoln, sccretarj' ; R. V. Muir, Browuyillc, treasurer; S. S. Thomas, Plattsmouth, vice-president. The awarding committee to judge the fruits at the recent state horticul tural exhibition consisted of J. B. McDowell, of Fairbury ; Prof. Thomp son, of Lincoln, and R. W. Day, of Tekama, who awarded premiums as follows: To Mr. Wiles, five varieties of apples; E. Shugart, collection of ten varieties of apples ; Hiram Craig, display of twenty varieties ; E. Bea ver, a collection of twenty varieties and to W. R. Harris a display of ten varieties. Ex - Gov. Furnas, J. H. Masters, Mr. Beaver, Mr. Shugart, Mr. Craig, Mr. Day, Barnard and Mr. Tattle, in response to a resolution offered by Mr. Wheeler, of Cass, pro ceeded to di?cuss the samples of fruit before them. The general experience of the speakers and tone of the dis cussion seemed to favor the Ben Davis, Jonathan, Wine Sap, White Winter Pearmain and Bellflower as the best varieties for Nebraska. The discussion was very interesting and to fruit men certainly very profitable. Van Wyck's peculiar way of pre senting a subject is fully shown in the following extract from oue of his speeches recently made in the senate, in a debate relative to the forfeiture of the land grant of the New Or leans & Paciiic railroad: "I knew that next to the constitution the highest law in this laud was the de mand of a railroad company, par ticularly a laud grant railroad com pany. I know that heretofore their demands in the Departments of this Government have amounted to law; and I have known, too, a3 I have read their brief aud the decisions in the Supreme Court of the United States, that the-Supreme Court in a measure have recognized that the demand of a railroad company was next to the Constitution of the land as the highest law of the nation. It became necessary that this matter should be understood, and there should bo no certifications issued, and no patents granted to this railroad company, whose only foundation for their claim is an opinion of the Attorney General of the United States." Annual Meetingof thc3icbraUa Stock: Ilreederti Asjk elation. The State Stock Breeders' Associa tion will meet in the Senate Chamber, at Lincoln, February 13th and 14th. This meeting i uot in the interest of any one breed, but is intended to help all persons cugaged in breeding, feediug, or marketing cattle, horses and swine. Charles II. Walker, Prcs't, Kising, Neb. To the Sheep men of Nebraska: The State Wool Growers' Association will hold its annual meeting on Fri day, February 15th, at the Senate Chamber, in Lincoln. Every Sheep man in the State snouia oe preseni, as matters of great importance to this large industry will come under dis cussion, and especially the present unsatisfactory state of the tariff. P. Jansejt, President, Fairbnry, Neb. These meetings will occupy the time of the last three daya of the Ag ricultural C illvg-i Lecturo course, for farmer?, imtfiotoru announced. For full programme, or for certifi cates giving reduced fare on rail roads, address, S. R.Thompson, Acting Scc'y. Lincoln, Neb. T. S. Clarkson returned Saturday from St. Louis, where he went to at tend a meetinz of the National Sugir Association. All the prominent suar growers of the country were present, fifteen different states beiug repre sented. There were present five of the promineut sugar growers of tho state of Louiaiaua. Mr. Clarkson says that it is a settled fact that as good sugar can be made from north ern cane as from southern. This year four of the principal sugar factories of the north manufactured 800,000 pounds of number one sugar from sorghum cane. Kansas hd9 enjoyed the reputation of being the best northern cane growing state, but this year Nebraska comes to the front as the best. Kansas and Illinois had early frosts this year that destroyed & large part of their cane crop, while Nebraska had a late frost. Although this has been a poor year for the cane growers, much has been accom plished, and next year there will bo more cane raised in the northern states than ever before. The syrup made from northern c-tne is iti great demand and is selling more readily in St. Louis than that mtdo from southern cane. Makiug sugar from sorghum cane is a new industry and promises to be one of the largest and best paying industries of our coun try. Sorghum cane can be raided in nearly all the northern states, and can be made to pay more than any other crop. Schuyler Herald. SaperviNorM Proceedings. Continued. Januaby 8, '84.
