Senator Manderson intends endeavor
ing to secure the passago of a bill intro
duced by Congressman Laird, deceased,
but which failed to become a law. It
provides that "notice of sale of real es
tate sold under the order, judgment or
decree of a United States court shall lie
given in the county andstate where the
proerty is located, and that the proper
ty, after notice, be there sold." The bill
(.enacts that ''hereafter no sale of any real
estate under any order, judgment or de
cree of any United States court shall le
had without previous publication of no
tice of such property sale being ordered
and had once a week for at least six
weeks prior to such sale in at least one
newspaper printed, regularly issued and
having a general circulation in the coun
ty and state where the real estate pro-
Iosed to be sold is sit uated. Said notice
shall among other things describe the
real estate to le sold and shall provide
for, and the sale so advertised shall take
place at the court house of the county
where the real estate to be sold is situ
ated. The court may in its discretion
direct the printing of the notice herein
provided for to be made in such other
papers as may seem proper."
Wo think that the proposed change is
a good one, and we have no doubt the
Nebraska delegation in congress will
support it. Many mortgages on Nebras
ka farms are held by eastern money
lenders, and when the foreclosures are
made, suit is now generally brought in
United States courts, and it often works
hardships on land owners. This cannot
well be otherwise, but if the law can be
changed so as to secure the sale t be
made in the county where the land is
situated, there will be some mitigation
of the hardships of the land owners.
"Henry T. Oxnord the proprietor of the
beet sugar plant at. (iranu island ap
peared before the house committee on
ways and means Monday and made an
argument in favor of retaining the tariff
on sugar. It was an able talk exhaust
ing every phase of the sugar problem
showing the gentleman to be thoroughly
familiar with the subject. Mr. Oxnord
contends that this is the only way the
industry can make a start in this conn
try, but let it once secure a fair start
and sugar can be bought right here at a
much less figure than now. This is the
way Franco, Germany and Austria gave
encouragement to the industry and ev
ery well read man knows the beneficial
results that have followed in those
countries. France has a duty of 5 cents
a pound, Germany 3 and Austria 4
cents while the United States has but 2
cents. The gentleman claims there are
five sugar producing 6tates in the Union,
Louisiana, Texas, California, Kansas and
Nebraska and that Nebraska is not least
among these by any means. Coming
from such a source these are surely
words of great promise for Nebraska
and may be taken as a certain criterion

A FARM PROBLEM.
A Paper Read at the Platte FarmerV flub
by John C. Swart-dry.
Tho subjoet assigned me, and upon
which I purpose to give my views or
opinion is, can hogs be raised for three
cents or less per pound, or in other words
would it pay better to sell corn at the
market price, say sixteen cents, than to
feed it at above prices to hogs?
I expect to lie brief, and very likely
my remarks will not meet the views of
my hearers, at least not all, but those
who differ with me have a perfect right,
providing they can prove the contrary.
First, my opinion is that much depends
upon the breed or stock of hogs; I be
lieve this to be the verdict of every hog
Some years back it was the conviction
of many farmers that Berkshire stock
was the most profitable hog to raise, as
they were ready for market any time
from seven to ten months old; this is
true of some classes of the Poland China,
provided they are pushed from the pig
on, the build and make of the Berkshire
is such that it is easily fatted and it
looks hog-like when only a few months
old. It is the conviction of packers that
no hog cuts to the advantage and makes
as fine bacon as the Berkshire. I will
give it as my opinion that the farmer can
raise pork at three cents per pound, and
realize some profit, though I suppose I
should add a proviso that disease does
not infest his herd.
Further, early pigs will give more
profit, say April pigs than those later in
the season, and again, for profit I would
advise good care of the mothers, plenty
of swill in addition to corn and oats un
til grass comes, at which time yon can
partially dispense with dry feed; feed
your pigs swill, as soon as they will be
irrio eairthe sooner ihsyaPSTead-V for
market the more profit. Now, in addi
tion to feed for the hog, it is highly ex
pedient to have a dry shelter so that they
are not exposed to wind and storm. I do
not think it best to house too warm.
I will also state, it has been my ex
perience that fall pigs pay small profits,
especially when you lose half your num
ber before spring, which is quito fre
quently the case (and no cholera in the
country, either). Fall pigs from young
mothers I don't believe ever return
The first indispensable requisite of a
good breeder is the possession of a good
constitution and sufficient age, then the
offspring will inherit health. For profit
we must have healthy hogs; in order to
accomplish this we must select our
breeders, that are active, hearty and vig
orous, capable of endurance.
I don't think there is any question but
what the old hog's offspring give larger
profits than the young one's. I believe
this to be the conviction of all hog rais
ers, and were it not for the disease the
hog is subject to, farmers certainly
would prefer the old hog for profit. The
farmer felt as if he could not keep his
sows over, as there would be too great a
risk of loss, or in other words a loss he
could avoid. With this dread of loss,
the farmer is responsible in destroying
the vital powers of the hog. There is no
comparison between the hogs of today
and the old woods hog which had the
vitality and endurance of a race horse.
Our hog today has a delicate, frail con
stitution, not capable of enduring hard
ships, but is subject to all diseases that
Again, for profit it is highly expedient
for farmers to have the necessary accom
modations for his hogs in the way of
houses, sheds, tame pasture and plenty
of clean water. Mud and filth are fore
runners or disease. That farmers wno
have the proper accommodations, can go
into the hog-raising business more ex
tensively, I believe it is accepted as a
settled fact where the farmer can raise
hogs on a larger scale, say enough to
.consume all of one man's time, he cer
tainly could curtail the cost of raising
hogs (especially with good luck), regular
feeding, proper attention witn the moth
ers at the time of farrowing, and the
pigs until they are able to care for them
selves. Now by the way of demonstration: if
you can, by attention and care, raise one
hundred pigs from ten sows, certainly
this would give a much greater profit
than only to raise fifty, this is the ex
perience of many farmers, only to raise
half the number they should. Of course
this is not always attributable to the
want of care, shelter and management.
The condition of the hog may have mnch
to do with this loss. If disease is in the
system, the pigs are likely to come dead,
or die soon afterward
When the farmer meets with losses he
soon feels the profits are gone, gone we
might claim in two ways; because he
could attend and feed one hundred hogs
at a proportionately lees expense than
twenty-fife, time, feed and all things
considered. I will conclude with tius
statement: if a man is properly equipped
for hog-rrising and could havo a guaran
ty against loss by disease he can raise
pork for three cents and even less, per
pound. But I cannot figure out any
way by which the farmer can raise corn
for twelve and firteen cents, which seems
to Ik? the market price on corn.
From oar renilar corresoiident.
Congress, much abused, but still nec
essary, is again with us, and Washington
rejoices and hopes its guests may make
a long visit. For if congress does not
entirely make the Washington mare go,
it certainly acts as a spur to that quad
ruped and accelerates her pace.
Among the vacant chairs on tho re
publican side of the house is that of
Judge Kelley, the "father of tho house,"
and from present appearances the chair
will never again lie occupied by the ven
erable commoner who has made his last
tariff speech. Ho is critically ill in this
city from a complication of disorders,
including a rapidly growing cancer, and
there is little or no hope of his recovery.
There is a probability that tho race
question in the south will shortly be
come one of international importance.
An English subject, a minister of the
gospel, has presented a petition to Sir
Julian Paunceforte, the British minister,
asking redress for injuries received by
himself and wife at the hands of a mob
in North Carolina. He claims to be a
missionary, and that he and his wife
have been preaching to the negroes and
teaching a negro school, and that for
this offense a mob of white men broke
into his house, after tiring a volley
through the door, wounding him, and
beating his wife. Tho preacher and his
wife are now in Washington, and tho
British ministejcj's engaged ill investi
gating their statements. If found true
redress will be demanded of this gov
ernment. The sheep raisers of the country are
standing up manfully for their rights
before the house committee on ways and
means they think the tariff on wool
should le raised a little.
There is considerable dissatisfaction
among congressmen because of the ex
clusiveness affected by certain depart
ment officials, and- unless something is
done 'to allay it an early explosion may
be expected, and it wdl not bo the con
gressmen that will get hurt. Beeause a
man happens to got into the cabinet or
at the head of an important bureau is no
reason why he should act as though he
was sole proprietor of the entire country.
Everybody is watching to see which
way the house will start this week, ev
erything depends on what business is
first taken up. If one of the many non
political questions, things may jog on
quietly for quite a while, but if a polit
ical question comes up it will lie a fight
from the start. Probably tho republi
can leaders will not provoke a rumpus
for some time yet, certainly not until
they get the mojority under better con
trol than was apparent beforo the holi
days, but on the other hand, the demo
crats will probably do all in their power
to make a row. for they are much letter
prepared for it now than they will be
later. So matters may fairly lie said to
be in a ticklish condition.
Kobert G. Blaine, a brother of Secre
tary Blaine, has ln-en appointed deputy
first auditor of tho treasury. He was
an applicant for the position of register
of wills of this district.
From official information received
from United States consuls tho state
department officials are under the im
pression that the seizing of certain
American merchant vessels by the Co
lumbian government was perfectly jus
tifiable, as the commanders of the ves
sels wilfully disobeyed the marine laws
of that country. The New York papers
tried to make a big sensation out of this
little matter, probably lecause the ves
sels are owned and sailed by merchants
of that citv.
