Would it not be a good idea for the
real estate men of this part of Platte
valley, amy from Columbus aa forwent as
Grand Island, to organise themselves
into what is known in other parts of the
west as a real estate association, having
for its object concerted action toward
showing the people of the country at
large the magnificent advantages which
this section of the great west has to
offer in the way of cheap and fertQe
lands? A good plan is to form a stock
company, the money received from the
sale of stock to be used in advertising
purposes. There are many men not en
gaged in the real estate business, but
who own land, or are otherwise directly
interested in the up-budding of the
country, who could well afford to take
stock in an enterprise of this sort for the
benefits they would derive from its
workings. There is not a business man,
professional man, banker, capitalist, me
chanic, fanner or laboring man within
the limits named who would not in
some way receive a benefit and price of
real estate would soon come up to where
We have as fine a country right here
in the heart of Nebraska as the sun
shines upon; all we want is more people
to make it a veritable garden. We want
tillers of the soil, men who are willing to
delve into our rich soil and by the hon
est sweat of the husbandman's brow
bring to the surface the fabulous wealth
that lies hidden there.
We do not want an artificial boom, and
none of the towns within the limits
named, have any diamond-studded town
lots in additions several miles from no
where that they want to dispose of to
eastern suckers at fancy prices. There
is not a town from Columbus to Grand
Island but can stand on its own bottom.
The country that surrounds each is suf
ficient guaranty of its stability and ulti
It is only a question of more or less
time when all these things will be
brought to the notice of the world, the
problem is simmered down to this: Shall
we auow opportunity, now tnat it is
within our reach, to escape us and re
turn to be grasped by the more enter
prising generation to succeed us? There
are practically no conflicting interests
to hinder Platte, Merrick and Hall coun
ties from joining hands and working in
a common cause, and our real estate men
and land owners are proper parties to
head the movement. Get together, boys,
and see what can be done. A few thous
and dollars expended in the right place
for advertising purposes would accomp
lish wonders, and by getting the rail
roads interested it would not be so dif
ficult a mattert to raise the money.
The Central City Nonpareil, from
which we clip the above, talks good,
strong common sense, which always ap
proves itself to Journal readers. Now
is the time to do what we can toward
securing the breaking up and cultiva
tion of every acre of land in this section
of country, thus building up home mar
kets. Each of these towns has a radius
of country tributary that, if properly
put under cultivation, cannot be taken
away by means of cross railroads or by
rival towns; a radius of country that can
be made to bring forth wonderfully of
all that has made Nebraska what she is.
We can double, treble, quadruple our re
tail market just so soon as these lands are
settled upon and cultivated, and year by
year, their value as a foundation for
a city's prosperity, will become more
and more apparent.
As the Nonpareil says, we need no
balloon inflation, only straight business.
Let us develop all our natural resources
at the earliest practical moment.

Tactics of Tariff Reformers.
Under the promise of getting more
American products into foreign markets
the free trade preachers urge that all
barriers against foreign competition
shall be removed from our home market.
The unfairness, the hollownesa of their.
proposal becomes apparent when all the
facts of the situation are given consider
ation.' Our home market is the best
market in the world; best, not only for
the reason that our people are the most
liberal buyers in the world.but for the fur
ther reason that it is the only one in
which they can trade and have all the
profits of the transaction inure to the na
tional wealth. The proposal is further
unfair because it demands the giving of
a certainly for an uncertainty a consid
eration of tangible and enormous value
for a chance to contest for something al
ready in the possession of commercial
rivals. European nations, whose teem
ing people crowd the narrow margin be
tween poverty and starvation, already
have subsidized lines of ships pushing
the products of their factories and mines
into the harbors of every foreign coun
try able to buy anything. To secure
any portion of this trade Americans
must supply similar products for less
money, or bettor ones for prices now
paid Europeans. The fact that their
customers in other countries are unable
or unwilling to use and pay for the pro
ducts already available is what occas
ioned the solicitude of Europem manu
facturers for a better hold on the mar
kets of the United States. Not content
with the nearly $100,000,000 worth of
manufactures annually sold here, they
seek to still further supplant domestic
labor in supplying the wants of the
American peopled The fact that this
would give work to idle people in foreign
lands and profits to foreign capital, is
with them a potent argument, while
that other fact, that increased foreign
purchases means enforced idleness for
thousands in this country, is deemed to
be outside of those results theyare call
ed upon to consider.
Not content with the decision against
free trade last year, the champions of
this unpatriotic policy have begun agi.
tation for a reversal of the verdict in
favor of giving the people of this coun
try the first right in their own markets.
Without regard to consistency in their
pleas, these crusaders are again seeking
the ears of those who so lately repudiat
ed their teachings. While one set re
peats to the former that.competition in
foreign markets will swell the prices of
uo iuuuuw, auotner assures tue me
chanic that free trade will enable him to
live cheaper, notwithstanding the fact
that the greater part of his expenses is
for what must be bought from the farm
er. One "reformer" will tell the wool
grower that under free trade the im
pulse to manufacturers will insure high
er prices for wool, while another goes to
the laborer with the promise that free
wool will bring cheaper clothing. Any.

verdict at the polls. It remains to be

be impotent The Third District, says
the Daily States, is sure to go Demo
cratic. That remains to be seen, but it
can not be any more certain to go Dem
ocratic than Ohio and Illinois were to
go Republican. In fact, the very cer
tainty of the Republican trend of new
States gave a pleasant comedy aspect to
the presence of Messrs. Mills and Gor
don. If on a full and fair vote, honestly
counted, the Third District of Louisiana
is sure to go Democratic why should
the Daily States and other Democratic
leaders of that district be otherwise than
amused by the presence of Messrs. Bur
rows, Bowell, and Peters? The question
is natural, indeed inevitable, to the situ
ation. The Daily States assumes that
the gentlemen are in the Third District
as "spies." Which provokes another
question: Spies upon what? Surely not
upon honest methods? Honesty will
bear unlimited espionage. We did not
complain of Messrs. Breckinridge, Mills,
and Gordon acting as spies upon North
ern methods in the late campaign. We
had nothing which we were afraid of
their discovering and proclaiming to the
whole world. The Daily States profess
es fear that the very honorable and dis
tinguished Northern gentlemen who are
now guests of the Republican party in
the Third District of Louisiana should
"manufacture evidence of bulldozing and
fraud sufficient to justify a Republican
House in unseating the Democrat elect
ed." No such fear was ever expressed
by any Northern Republican newspaper
as to the presence of any Southern and
Democratic Congressman in any debata
ble district. Messrs. Burrows, Rowell,
and Peters are not the kind of men who
would "manufacture evidence." It is
paltry and disgraceful party malice
which attributes such a disposition to
them. But neither are they men who
will be afraid to tell what they have
seen. If they witness a fair election
they will say so. If they do not they
will say so. Chicago Inter Ocean.

vein which was struck some months ago
when excavating for the Masonic temple.

There are quite a number of people con
jectunng what John Stauffer is going to
do. It is conceded all around that he is
out of the race for county clerk, but
many are in doubt as to whether or not
he is a candidate for treasurer. The
Journal hears that Mr. Stauffer's near
est friends are anxious that he should
not accept nomination for any office,
while some others interested in putting
up a ticket are urging him to accept the
nomination for treasurer. A strong re
publican friend of Mr. Stauffer's remark
ed to the writer Monday while speaking
of Mr. Stauffer's probably running for
treasurer against Becher, that it seemed
to him there was no sort of justification
I for it; that Becher had made a most ex
cellent county treasurer, that nobody
could justly make a single complaint
against him, and yet why should Mr.
Stauffer (if it is a fact that he wishes to
run for treasurer) want to work for the
defeat of Mr. Becher for another term
a customary thing in this county for a
worthy official? It certainly could not
be in the public interest, and, remarked
our friend, "Mr. Stauffer, who has al
ways received hundreds of republican
votes, would find that, in this case, it
would be different." Another remarked
that Mr. Stauffer was a little too shrewd
to be caught in any such trap as the
nomination for treasurer would put him
into, and that John would excuse him
self to his political friends and go into
business; that the fact is he is tired of
official life and will take a rest and then
probably engage in business. The
Journal is well aware that very much
of the nature of the coming campaign
depends upon whether Mr. Stauffer is
nominated for treasurer we mean the
issues upon which the campaign will be
fought, and hence there is more than
usual interest in this matter which
seems to be merely personal but it

Leavenworth, Eaa, has almost a par
allel of the Wichita Brown mystery, so
far as a sudden dusappearance and con
tinued and inexplicable absence are con
cerned. Last Sunday one week ago Mr.
E. O. Webster, who resided in a suburb
an addition to the city, left his home to
go to the Baptist church, located in the
central part of the city. Since that time
nothing has been seen or heard of the
missing man. The most careful search
has utterly failed to lead to the slightest
clue -to his whereabouts, or explanation
of bis continued absence. The case is
assuming an alarming phase, there being
no possible reason suggesting itself
which will clear up the case.
A Pennsylvania editor answers a cor
respondent who propounded the query,
"Did you ever see a bald-headed wo
man?" in the following strain: "No; we
never did. Nor did we ever see a woman
waltzing around town ia her shirt
sleeves, with a cigar between her teeth.
We never saw a woman go fishing with
a bottle in her hip pocket, sit around on
the damp ground all day and go home
'boozed' in the evening. Neither have
we seen a woman yank off her coat, spit
on her hands, and swear she could whip
any man in town. All the foregoing
'privileges' are reserved for men."

where the people intended to celebrate
the day in commemoration of the found

United States. -Log College was estab
lished in 1726 by William Tennenant,
and flourished until 1742, when Prince
ton college was founded. A number of
speeches and addresses were made by
eloquent ministers, but when President
Harrison arose to speak he was greeted
for quite a space of time by that stand
ing audience of 25,000 people with cheer
after cheer and waving of handkerchiefs.
He made a very neat and appropriate
address, in which he particularly com
mended the persistent and steadfast
labors of Presbyterians from the Log
College days until now; to these two
qualities he attributed much of the pro
gress of this time.

The president on Friday settled one of
the hardest fought contests for an office
that has yet been fought before him, by
the appointment of Frank P. Clark to be
collector of customs at El Paso, Texas.
There were thirty-seven candidates in
the field for this office and each of them
has been, since the' fourth of March
"hustling" as only a Texan knows how
to "hustle" to "get there." The man ap
pointed has from the first been the
choice of secretary Windom for the place
and four times his commission has been
sent to the president for his signature,
but the other candidates by combining
each time in preventing the attachment
of the president's autograph thereto.
This case gives a good ideaof the trouble
there is in filling the offices.

side contends that if built on the present
plans she will not float, and the other
that the plans are all right. Both can
not be right, and the amount of money
involved more than $2,000,000 makes
the question a very important one. In
addition to this the secretary will try to
arrive at some conclusion regarding the
completed, but -unaccepted, vessels Ve

officials courageous enough to say that
he believes the offices should be given to

putting his whole force to working until

on the examination of the money order
accounts from 9,500 postoffices, which he

A fire broke out in a barn belonging
to Rev. Andrews at Blue Springs, a sub
urb of Wymore last Tuesday afternoon.
Two children of David Gay, aged three
and four years, were in the barn at the
time, and the general supposition is that
they were playing with matches in the
hay loft The fire had gained such head
way when discovered that it was impos
sible to save the children, and their
charred and almost unrecognizable re
mains were tound in the ruins. Mr. Gay
is a traveling salesman. The loss on the
barn is about $200.

What a pity it is that Schnyler does
not take pattern from such cities as
Kearney and Fremont and do something
in the way of establishing industries.
Fremont can point with pride to a mam
moth creamery, a large foundry, a twine
factory, a canning establishment, a car
riage factory in process of construction,
a packing house doing a good business
and several minor industries. Kearney
has a paper mill, one or two other fac
tories the names of which have escaped
our memory, and now a contract has
been let and signed for the erection
of a cotton mill which will be one of the
largest factories of any description this
side of Chicago. Thia mill will require
upwards of 800 hands and will have a
pay roll running up into the thousands.
Such enterprises as this mesas the ad
dition of two or three thousand to Kear
ney's population during the next year
and several millions ia wealth. By the
enterprise aad public spirit of her citi
