The Nebraska State Grange favors
the idea of loans by the government at a
rate sufficient to cover all expenses and
through a central bank and local branch
es. The scheme is not altogether new,
but whether the men who make the
laws can be made to see the advisability
of it, is a question of, serious doubt.
"What every farmer of the west wants'
is a factory in his community. It en
hances the value of his products by
insuring a strong demand, and eliminat

markets which always absorbs a large
portion of his otherwise legitimate in
come. The farmer is benefited by pro
tection. Fremont Tribune.
There is n band of sixty-five Omaha
Indians camped near the Loup. They
are waiting till the snow melts to go up
the Loup trapping for beaver. Two
bucks were in town Monday buying
coffee nnd sugar, with money got from
the sale of five pounds of beaver Bkin at
$1 a pound. They seemed to take great
pride ' in the big 1 leaver whose hide
brought them 83.
The Schuyler Herald reports a real
live anarchist from Columbus sojourn
ing down there, aud that he was given
to understand by several Germans there
that thiB country was no place for an
archists, uud that when he differed with
this government it was simply his own
mistake at his own peril. Guess there
must be some mistuke again. Columbus
lias no anarchists.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is the last day

taken the oath, shall appear on the 5th
and organize as provided by lnw, the new
board will have a legal existence. The
first meeting of the board is usually the
most important one of the year, aud it is
desirable that all le present.
A visitor to Blair, Neb., last week,
noticed a multitude of crows, making
themselves quietly at home in the back
lots, streets and alleys. He was informed
that this is the second winter they have
passed in this way. They are regarded
as jets by the citizens, and repay the
hospitality they receive by eating all
manner of refuse, thus keeping the town
free from decaying matter.
Paul Hagel tells us that the butter
and egg business is fairly active the
first, 10 to 18 cents according to quality,
fresh eggs 18. These prices, with this
firm, are cash. They ship a large amount
of these products, and the business
grows every year. The Journal le
lieves there is a greater per cent, of
profit in raising eggs than there is in
raising beef, and there is always a good
- The resjiectable and self-respecting
communities of Nebraska are making an
outcry against rowdyism, hoodlumism,
the gatning-tahle, the bawdy-house and
the doggery that violates the liquor law
every day of its life and brings young
lads to ruin. The last outory is from
Seward, where, it seems, that Sunday
whiskey in loafing bummers has done
bad work recently. Insist on the au
thorities abating the nuisances.

-One of the many industries that
would pay well in Columbus is a canning
factory. Operated on a large scale it
would give employment to hundreds of
eople, and help make Columbus a man
ufacturing center, as she now is a rail
road center. The canning factories at
Blair nnd Tekamah netted a profit last
year to the stockholders of over $5,000
for the season. Columbus's start for
ward in the road of progress, the next
step and the most solid of all, will be

Blind Boone Concert. This remark
able blind pianist appeared last evening
at the Accademy of Music before a large
and critical audience. The occasion was
one of double interest, it being the first

him by his manager, Mr. John Lange, ait
a cost of 850 from Max Meyer & Bro.,
of this city. Mr. Boone's playing is

The Columbus Loup-river, bridge
bond case was to have been heard by
the supreme court yesterday. At this
writing (noon Tuesday) no word has
been received here. It seems that the
Attorney General relies on section 77,
chapter 14 providing- that "all public
bridges exceeding sixty-six feet in
length over any stream crossing a 6tate
or a county highway shall be construct
ed and kept in repair by the county," to
defeat the registration of the bonds.
The case has excited considerable inter
est throughout the state, and an ex
haustive opinion by the court may be
The Quill raps the churches of
Schuyler over the knuckles thus: "A
large per cenL of Schuyler's church peo
ple are drunkards in a more or less
degree. If society did net lionize these
same fellows and would turn a cold
shoulder to a man who so lowers him
self in the scale of humanity it would be
somewhat different. We consider our
church affairs in this city of a weak na
ture, with one or two exceptions. Our
language on this subject may be a little
strong, but it is true and when a person
touches on such a subject it should be
handled without gloves. A man has a
right in a sense of the word to do what
be pleases with himself, but the public
has no right to uphold him and honor
him in hu recklessness. We repeat it,
Schuyler takes the belt." "'

The North Nebraska Teachers' As
sociation met at Blair last week, and
they had from all accounts, a very inter
esting and of course to those present a
profitable session. D. A. Cooper, presi
dent of the association, delivered a very
brief but earnest and well-considered
address -the central idea being "that
plan of education which will produce
the best results is the one for which wo
seek, the plan which is most complete
in all its parts." Miss Amanda Olsen of
Tekamah read an interesting paper on
The Kindergarten that was out of the
usual course. Prof. L. J. Cramer of this

us of this city was elected secretary,
and the meeting adjourned to hold their
next annual convention in this city.
We have always understood that
the Columbus Packing House quit
business because they could not get
rates from the railroad companies that
would justify them to ship their pro
ducts; that so long as they could get
rates, their Tenture did well enough,
but that, for some reason, both railroad
companies combined, making a discrimi
nation against Columbus in favor of
Omaha, virtually closing the outside
market from the Columbus Packing
House. Whether it would le profitable
for the owners of this institution to
start up again, since the interstate com
merce law and the state commission
have made a little change in things, is a
question the Journal cannot answer.

piece of rhymes written on the ''Thresh
ing of the Hog." It seems to us thut
the ancient Era, under Mr. Hensley's
administration, had a reference to the
"threshing of hogs," when speaking of
delinquent subscribers. Send the lines

Hard times for coal in many places till
over the country. Last winter the coal
kings of Pennsylvania met and resolved
to mine only bo much coal, I think about
CO million bushels less than the actual
demand of the consumers. This was a
double stroke inflicted on the poor
miners on one hand to deprive them of
work and crash them, and on the other
hand, on the whole people, raising coal
to exorbitant prices. Mr. Editor, is it
right to hang poor Molly McGuires,
Anarchists, Communists and othersmall
thieves and let those begetters of them
these R. It, coal and other kingly mo
nopolists ran free? Oppression begets
opposition. Suppress oppression and
a long suffering public will be satisfied.
Mr. Weaver's article in the Journal
had the right ring. He demands of Co
lumbus merchants and capitalists to
meet the farmers half way, so to speak.
But Mr. Weaver cannot shorten dis
tances, and ns long as the farmer can
get as much, or nearly as much, for his
produce, and can buy what he needs for
as little or nearly as little, by going from
two to ten miles, as by going from fifteen
to twenty, he will naturally prefer the
"short haul." Prices for produce could
only materially be raised in Columbus
by home consumption, and prices for
articles needed could only be lowered by
home manufacture. What Columbus
needs is factories, as the writer has
maintained all these years. Nor is pub
lic spirit among merchants and capital
ists in Columbus entirely wanting. A
pork house and a creamery, a fair asso
ciation and some other enterprises have
been started; the first one had to be
closed, the second is only kept up at a
continual loss to the stockholders and
other enterprises have gone down en
tirely. Why? Because the public spirit
of the enterprising men in and around
Columbus has not been responded to by
sin equal public spirit among the' farm
ing community. x. y. z.
