" LEADERS IN LOW PRICES.
THE TKAMP PROBLEM.
Method a Pretty
Good Hint for
Nobody is safe in his life or property
when the country is overrun by such a
hoard of outlaw's ns infested Crete lasl
week one man killed, another knocked
down and almost choked to death, and
two or three others held up inside of two
or three days is sufficient cause for the
formation of a vigilance committee of
level-headed men to take charge of the
next tramps that make their appearance.
The tramp problem has been on ns for
years and nothing more has been done
than to provide the usual penalties for
jetty larceny and vagrancy. Tramps in
this "country are developinginto outlaws.
They commit highway robbery, burglary,
arson, grand and ietty larceny, rape and
murder whenever opportunity presents
itself. And it is one of the most diffi
cult things to fix the crime uion them
for they come and go without any one
knowing it, and liave, no fixed alnide;
and may be in Crete in the evening and
kill a man, and be in Hastings in the
morning by stealing a ride on the cars,
and no one know it. Crete Democrat.
Any village or city can settle the
tramp problem for themselves, pretty
effectually, by having some work to do.
and compelling the tramps to do it.
Suggestions: chopping or sawing wood
to furnish to the city's poor: street
grading; digging cellars; cracking stone
where needed, to macadamize the streets.
One of our citizens says that his wife
has solved the problem for 'herself, in
this way. She had a wood pile prepared
for this special purpose. When a tramp
applies and asks for something to eat,
she tells him to chop the little pile of
wood and she will give him a good meal.
The pile of wood remains intact, and is
likely to do service for years to come.
Tramps are not banting for work with
the expectation of doing any. They
will shy around the town that makes
them work. They want none of it.
They will avoid it as a snake avoids fire.
Work is the one thing in all the world
that they have no use for. The bread
they eat is sweet to them because it is
the result of the hard labor of some one
else, from the time the seed went into
the ground, until the cold bread is
poked out of the back door. The prac
tical problems of life are mainly wrap
ped up in two words work, wages
and happy is he that seeks the one, and
thus finds the other.
In the assessment of taxes if a man
has money or notes or debts, his debts
are subtracted from his assessment, but
the farmer, though he may owe all he is
worth, is assessed on his real and person
al property, without any exemption. This
is an unjust discrimination in favor of
capital, and rakes millions from the
farmers unjustly every year. The mort
gaged farmer pays tax on the full assess
ment of his farm while as a fuct; the
farm is largely owned by the mon,in the
east who holds the mortgage. Generally
the men who hold the mortgages, pay no
tax on them, but if they do there is an
equal injustice in making the same prop
erty pay doable tax. In either case it
all in the end comes out of the farmer.
How does it corae that in every case
where our presenftaws discriminate, the
discrimination is in favor of capital?
Why is not the farmer somehow and
somewhere allowed the long end of the
whiffletree? The alliance should look
after the tax laws. Cedar Bapids Re
publican. The proposition of Gov. Thayer for
the passage-of a bill enabling Nebraska
to choose three congressmen-at-large at
uext election is favorably received at
Washington. It is evervwhere recogniz-

member, against 30,000 in New York,
20,000 in Massachusetts and 8,000 iu

be immediately righted, and the gov

Speaker Reed's proposition, "Federal
supervision of federal elections," is not
being well received in the south. Any
thing done to practically enforce the
theory that the United States govern
ment is the organized will of the entire
people of the Union, in short, that we
are a nation and not a confederacy, is
distasteful to those who hold to the doc
trine that the states are sovereign, and

Union be subject to the .manipulations
of thugs, ballot-box etuffers, bulldozers
and corrupt scoundrels, whether of the
south, or in slum-ruled cities of the
north? There is no reason. Let the
sovereign power of the United States be
extended and firmly felt wherever a
eitien of the Republic is honestly en
gaged in minding his affairs. Evil doers
should neither be consulted in making
the laws or enforcing them. If the gen

very source of all political power, then

From oar regular correspondent
Senator Frye has reported from the
senate committee on commerce two bills
in which the president is known to be
very much interested; one of them pro
vides for the payment of a bounty 30
cents a ton for every thousand miles
sailed by American built and owned
vessels of more than 500 tons burthen,
and the other provides for the formation
of an American built and owned ocean
service by authorizing the postmaster
general to make contracts for carrying
ocean mails with four classes of vessels
at from $1 to $6 a mile, according to
class, for the outward voyage. Mr. Frye
6tated when making his report that if
these bills became laws he had reason to
know that within three years a line of
the best ships in the world would be put
on between Mew lone ana Jjiverpooi,
and that another line wosud be running
between New York and South America
in less than two years, and these would
be but the beginning. These bills have
been indorsed by boards of trade and
chambers of commerce all over the
country and also by the National Grange
and the Farmers' Alliance, but that did
not prevent two democratic members of
the committee senators Coke and Vest
stating that they did not agree to the
report of the committee. The idea is
too progressive for them.
The idea of an argument between the
senate and house republican caucuses
on a silver bill has, practically been
abandoned. The house will pass the
bill agreed upon and the senate will
amend it and leave it to a conference
committee to arrange a compromise.
The house committee which has been
investigating the civil service commis
sion devoted the greater part of Satur
day to hearing arguments by both sides.
A report is expected from the committee
Senator Beck dropped dead of heart
disease in the Pennsylvania railroad
station here, Saturday afternoon, but a
few feet from where President Garfield
was shot in 1881. Mr. Beck had just
retnrned with his daughter and his pri
vate secretary from New York City. He
was the ablest democrat in the senate,
but for several years oast he has not
taken an active part in congressional
work on account of his health.
The house has passed the diplomatic
appropriation bill, also the legislative,
executive and judicial appropriation bill.
The president has signed the bill pro
viding a temporary government for the
territory of Oklahoma.
Representative Henderson, of Iowa,
has introduced a bill providing a penalty
of 5,000 and imprisonment for five
years, or both for sending obscene liter
ature through the mails.
Representative McCreary of Kentucky
is one of the few level-headed democrats
in the house: Saturday afternoon he
made a strong speech in favor of recip
rocity with the South and Central Amer
ican republics and stated bis belief that
the recent Pan-American congress would
be recorded in history as a success, and
that it would be remembered as the first
step in the social and commercial union
of the American republics. The speech
was frequently interrupted by the ap
plause of the house.
The date when the McKinley tariff
bill will go into effect has been changed
to July 1,1891.
Secretary Windom thinks the amount

lite figure 9 in our dates will make a long stay.
Mo man or woman now living will ever date a
iooament without using the figure 0. It stand
In the third place in 1990, where it will remain ten
years and then move up to Mcoud place in 1000,
wkete It will rest for one hundred yean.
There U another "9" which has aUo come to stay.
It is unlike the figure 9 in our dates In the respect
that it has already moved up to first place, where
it will permanently remain. It is called the '-No.
9" High Arm Wheeler A Wilson Sewing Machine.
The "No. 9" was endorsed for first place by the
experts of Europe at the Paris Exposition of 1899,
where, after a severecontest with the leading ma
chines of the world, it was awarded the only
Grand Prize given to family sewing machines, all
others on exhibit having received lower awards
of gold medals, etc. The French Government
also reoognized its superiority by the decoration o f
Mr. Nathaniel Wheeler, President of the company,
with the Cross of the Legion of Honor.
The "No. 9" is not an old machine Improved
upon, but u aa entirely new machine, and the
Grand Prize at Paris was awarded it as the grand
est advance in sewing machine mecnanism of the
age. Those who buy it can rest assured, there
fore, of having the very latest and best.
