Senator Sfbecheb, who represents
this district in the state senate, gives
this as a reason for his action in regard
to the State Fair location:
"Just at present the permanent loca
tion of the State Fair is the big issue
before the legislature. As our readers
know, the State Board of Agriculture
last January located the fair at Omaha
for five years. Now a bill is introduced
in the legislature to permanently locate
it at Lincoln. The legislature can do
this as the State Board of Agriculture is
a creature of the legislature. A fight is
on between Douglas and Lancaster
county and it promises to be bitter. For
one I "shall vote for Lincoln. I believe
that Lincoln is the best place and is
nearer a central location, and above all I
can get a slap at that infamous Omaha
Business Men's Association that went
into politics last fall and tried to elect
rotten Tom Majors governor by sending
out a circular insulting every populist
and declaring that if Holcombwas elect
ed governor the credit of the state wonld
be ruined. I want to say right hero that
any populist who votes for Omaha after
that circular is not worthy to be classed
as a man among men again. He would
be a genuine thing who, like a dog, licks
the foot that kicks him."
It looks to us as though the senator is
a little too impulsive in this matter. A
contract has been entered into by the
state board for the location at Omaha
for five years; Lincoln has had a very
large share of the benefits heretofore
flowing from the location of the fair
there, and why violate the contract en
tered into, if the same waB made fairly?
It seems to The Journal that the spirit
of one phase here "and above all I can
get a slap at, etc.," is not the motive to
actuate senators in the discharge of
their duties. It should rather be the
best interests of the state and of the
district which the senator represents,
than any personaj or individual feeling.
While we think that Senator Sprecher's
general course is very close to the
straight mark, we think in this matter,
he should not let his personal prejudices
control his official conduct
Good Democratic Opinion.
There are scarcely any now to 6ay a
good word for the late democratic con
gress, but, on the contrary, nearly every
body is "registering a kick," and among
the very mildest of these is the demo
cratic Boston Post, which says:
"For the first democratic congress
which this generation has seen demo
cratic, that is, in both branches, with a
democratic executive it has been a sad
disappointment. It has failed through
the weakness or the wrong-headedness
of men elected as democrats. It has
failed because democratic principles
have been ignored or betrayed.
If the democratic party has learned a
lesson in the choice of its representa
tives, the Fifty-third congress will not
have lived in vain."
A bill prohibiting the display of for
eign Hags on public buildings in this
state has passed the assembly by a vote
of 83 to 17. Why it should have any"
opposition is not easy to see. " The Star
Spangled Banner God bless it is the
pride of all true Americans and fills the
measure of their desire for decoration on
civic holidays. The bill may have been
introduced out of malice, but it will save
ill-feeling among fellow citizens. It will
relieve the state of such displays of prej
udice as ex-Mayor Hewitt made when he

The proposed now depo3itory law
makes some radical changes requiring
investigation into tho standing of a bank,
and of bondsmen; requires sureties to
qualify and punishes them for perjury;
restricts deposits to banks in same
county to f0 per cent of capit.il and sur
plus, thereby preventing large deposits
in small banks; permits deposits outside
the conntv when banks in tho county
will not bid for the money or are not
safe; gives the county the enstody of
vouchers and the right to require auxil
iary books to be kept for the purpose of
showing the transactions between treas

funds in the treasurer's hands to be de
posited in the depository banks.
There is a democrat in town who used
to be a great friend of President Cleve
land and has never gone back on him
entirely until the other day. He has
always had Graver's picture hanging in
his store but when the president recom
mended bonds, it was the last straw and
our democratic friend took down that
picture. He tore it in half, then he tore
in two again and continued to tear it
until it was resolved into 10,000 infinitis
imal fragments and then he stamped on
it. Thus disappears the last picture of

Senators, representatives in congress
and others are endeavoring to form a new
political party based on silver alone.
They declare that in this lies the only
hope of success. They despair of accom
plishing anything effectively in existing
political parties. Joseph C. Sibley of
Pennsylvania is spoken of as a presiden
tial candidate for the new party, and it
is understood that it is the desire of the
Bimetallic league that a republican
should receive the nomination for vice

is quite lengthy.
Tefft's bill providing for a constitu

present time, will be approved by the
people. Costly luxuries are not to be

THE INCOME TAX.
What Farmers la England Must Do
Faying- Their Tribute.
While the American fanner is basily
engaged in making a statement of the
valuation of his property and his stock,
so as to be ready for the income tax col
lector, who is as necessary an evil in this
country under the policy of free trade
as he is in England, it may console the
American fanner to leant that his broth
er farmer in England has been receiving
a little Christmas gift in the shape of a
revised circular concerning the income
tax in that country.
There the tax is payable on Jan. 1, a
sort of New Year's gift which the farm
er is compelled to disgorge as his tribute
toward free trade. There the farmer has
the option of being taxed at a rate of 6
cents in the pound upon the actual val
ue that is, the rental value of his
land, although he may decide to be taxed
as an ordinary trader upon his average
profits during three preceding years. In
this latter case an examination of his
accounts during that period is necessary,
so as to show the farmer's exact posi
tion. During his leisure moments the farm
er here, as well as in England, should
take a course in bookkeeping, if he is
not already an expert in that necessary
branch of business. We aro not aware
of the exact form in which the farmers
must make their rctnrns in this country,
but in England a blank balance sheet is
prepared and distributed for the farmers
to fill out, requiring many items and
particulars which the average farmer
could only furnish as an estimate, and
many others which it would bo impossi
ble for him to furnish unless ho were an
Shonld the farmer desire to appeal
against the amount of his taxation, the
time wherein he can appeal or lodge a
claim for the repayment of a portion of
his tax is very limited. The tax col
lector, however, is allowed at least six
montns wherein to consider such claims
and make repayments, so that if the
farmer be compelled to pay unjustly any
amount in excess of what tho law prop
erly demands he may make up his mind
that fully a year will elapse before he
secures any refund. Tbeso aro a few of
the incidents of an income tax, which
is and must bo always a necessity and
part of a policy of freo trade.
The Wind That Blows the Straw.
'.Must Mot Lower Wages.
Men do not mind working side by
side with each other, no matter what
their nationality, when established con
ditions of wages and labor are not placed
in jeopardy thereby. Tho refusal of the
men at Homestead to work with a con
tingent of Hungarians was because the
latter were introduced for the purpose
of demoralizing the wage scale, not be
cause they were Hungarians.
The Two Eternal Types in Fiction.
The novel of romance and adventure
has had a long history, and the elements
of which it is compounded are recogniz
able long before they took the form of
fiction. Two figures appear and reap
pear in the mythology of every poetic
people: the hero and the wanderer; the
man who achieves, and the man who ex
periences; the man who masters life by
superiority of soul or body, and the man
who masters it by completeness of
knowledge. It is interesting and pa
thetic to find how universally these two
figures held tho attention and stirred
the hearts of primitive men; how infi
nitely varied aro their tasks, their ierils,
and their vicissitudes. They wear so
many guises, they bear so many names,
they travol so far and compass so much
experience that it is impossible, in any
interpretation of mythology, to escape
the conviction that they were the domi
nant types in the thought of the myth
makers. And these earliest story-makers
were not idle dreamers, entertaining
themselves by endless manufacture of
imaginary incidents, conditions and per
sons. They were, on the contrary, the
observers, the students, the scientists of
their period; their endeavor was not to
create a fiction but to explain the world
and themselves. Their observation was
imperfect and they made ludicrous mis
takes of fact because they lacked both
knowledge and training; but they made
free use of the creative faculty, and
there is, consequently, a good deal more
truth in their daring guesses than in
many of those provisional explanations
of nature and ourselves which have been
based too exclusively on scrutiny of the
obvious fact and indifference to the fact
which is not less a fact because it is
elusive. Hamilton W. Mabie, in the
The supreme court holds as to a man's
voting place: "One's residence is where
he has his established home, the place
where he is habitually present and to
which, when he departs, he intends to
return. The fact that he may at a future
time intend to move will not necessarily
defeat his residence before he actually
does move. It is not necessary that he
should have the intention of always
remaining, but there must be no inten
tion of presently removing."

The following directions for tanning
sheep skins will answer a correspond
ent: For mats take two long-wool
skins and make a- strong: suds, using
hot water; when it is cold wash the
skins in it carefully squeeziag them
between the hands to get the dirt out
of the wool then wash the soap out
with cold, clear water. Then dissolve
alum and salt, each a half pound, with
a little hot water sufficient to cover
the skins and let them soak in It
over night for twelve hours, then
hangover a pail to drain. When
they are well drained spread or
etretch carefully over a board to dry.
When a little damp have an ounce of
saltpetre and alum pulverhed and
sprinkle on the flesh side of each skin,
rubbing in well; then lay the flesh
sides together and hang in the shade
for two or three days, turning the
under skin uppermost every day, then
scrape the flesh side with a blunt
knife to remove any remaining scraps
of flesh. Trim off projecting points:
rub the flesh side with the hands, and
they will be very white and handsoma
suitable for a door or urriage mat
They also make good mi. tens. Lamb
skins or even sheep skins, if the wool
be trimmed off evenly to a half or
three-fourths of an inch long, make
beautiful and warm mittens for ladies
or gentlemen, and the girls with a
little practice can make them.

A Danish Hasina; Case.
The inquiry into the death of the
young cadet Simonsen at the naval
academy at Copenhagen has just been
brought to a conclusion and has re
sulted in the dismissal and disgrace of
the commandant of the school. The
latter has been made the scapegoat,
and tbe principal object of the court
seems to have been to exculpate young
Prince Charles, son of the Crown
Prince, from the charges of hazing and
brutality which had been brought
against him. The fact, however, that
none of the cadets was pun
ished furnishes abundant evidence that
the charges against his royal highness
were well founded, and the court
has been forced to admit that he, one
of the seniors, was present when
young Simonsen, almost crazed by the
incredible cruelty to which he had
been subjected by his older comrades,
and with his face covered with blood
and the bridge of his nose smashed,
seized a revolver and put himself out
of misery by blowing his brains out

"Columbus, Neb,, has a citizen who
only needs a pair of yellow covers to
make him a walking dime novel," said a
citizen of that burg at the Merchants.
"I refer to Colonel Jim Meagher, who is
now agent of the Union Pacific road at
that place. When the road was first
constructed, Colonel Meagher was the
'transient agent' always- moved to the
end of the line, pushed to the front, as
the rails were laid, to open a new station.
Jim has a choice lot of reminiscences of
pioneer days, including the time when he
shot all the feathers out of an Indian's
war bonnet and then made the warrior
stand on bis head on a pile of railroad
ties. This veteran railroader also tells
of the time he carried S. H. H. Clark on
his back and swam across the Platte
river, on a hunting expedition. Another
time, he worked up a big sale of tickets
for the Union Pacific by disguising him
self as an Indian, accompanied by sev
eral of the yard crew, and riding on
horseback through the small town where
he was agent, whooping and shooting,
with an energy that caused a stampede
of citizens to the railroad station, where
they bought tickets in a hurry for
Omaha, to escape what they believed was
an inevitable massacre to follow, that

In the earlier days more than now it
was customary to fell the large cotton
wood trees and saw them up into dimen

flooring, or slats for granaries. A far
mer had thus provided himself with a
large lot of slats, and for a few weeks let
them lie exposed to sun and rain, when
they began to twist and warp to such a
degree that the aged farmer called to
his sons one morning, seeing extra ani

all tit L. W. Weaver's harness store
anuviee tbe set or liarness no will give
away May 1 to tho lucky man. I will
give to every purchaser of a set of har
ness a ticket entitling him to a chance in
a drawing of one of my very best hand
made harness worth $'2o. This gives
every man that buys a set of harness of
L. W. Weaver a chance to get two set for
the price of one. I wish to say for my
harness that they are the very lest; all
made in my shop by workmen of thirty
years' experience in the trade, and only
tho very best oak leather is used. I ask
every one that contemplates buying to
call and examine them, nnd if they Gnd
they are not as good or better than any
made in Columbus I don't ask you to
buy. Every set is guaranteed nnd any
breakages in a re.isonablo length of time
are repaired free of charge. My prices
are cheaper than ever known before.
All hand made, range from $20 to $2T
per set. The drawing will be conducted
in any way the ticket holders may see
fit, and we shall seo that it is done strict
ly fair in every way. Should I sell but
ten set of harness between now and May
1, the drawing will take place jnst the
same. This offer surbly ought to be a
great inducement for you to buy your
harness of me, if tho price and quality is
as good, as elsewhere, and both of which
wo guarantee. Buy your harness of
Weaver, for yon may be the lucky man.
It coats you nothing extra, and may
make yon a set of harness.

HEMP SEED TO LOIN !
I want to contract with farmers within
hauling distance of Columbus to grow
about a thousand acres of hemp. Will
furnish seed and take pay out of crop
grown. n.ivo two kinds of seed; small
est variety will produce ten to fifteen
bushels of seed and lj to 1 tons straw
per acre; other more straw and les3 seed.
Hemp stands drouth better than any
crop except alfalfa. Improves land
almost as much as clover and can be
grown twenty years in succession on
same laud. On good land plowed deep
it made fair crop in 1894. For further
information apply at my oirice at mill
after 2 p. m. M. Jerome.

Henry Wallace Out of the Homestead.
Henry Wallace, whoso name is synon
ymous with that of tho Iowa Homestead,
of which ho has been editor for ten years,
is no longer connected with that paper.
Mr. Wallace has always boen a strong
anti-monopolist in fact, the present
Iowa railroad law is largely due to his
efforts in tho Homestead. His with
drawal from the Homestead was the
culmination of trouble between him and
the business manager on matters of edi
torial pcliev Mr. Wallace wishing the
paper to continue to stand for anti-
monopoly principles. Failing in this he
has become editor of Wallace's Farm and
Dairy, a semi-monthly agricultural paper
published at Ames, Iowa, at fifty cents
per year. Mr. Wallace will be glad to
send free sample copies of his new paper
to his old Homestead friends, or any
others, who will drop him a postal card.
We will send Wallace's Farm and Dairy
and the Columbus Journal one year for
$1.80, payable in advance.
