It is nearly time that the printing
fraternity were looking after a few of
their rights, so far as the general public
is concerned. It will not be possible,
under the following, introduced by Sen
ator Alters, to start on wind: "That no
newspaper shall be considered a legal
newspaper for the publication of legal
and other official notices unless the
same shall have a bona fide circulation
of at least two hundred copies weekly
and shall have been published within
the county fifty-two successive weeks
prior to the publication of such notices,
and be printed either in whole or in part
in an office maintained at the place of
publication. That all legal and other
official notices shall be published in a
legal newspaper as defined in section
one of this act, and that the affidavit of
publication shall state that said news
paper is a legal newspaper, which affida
vit shall be prima facie evidence of that
fact. The provisions of this act shall
not apply in counties wherein but one
newspaper is published, or in counties
where no newspaper is published for a
period of one year prior to the publica
tion of such leg.il or other official notices,
or in counties where no newspaper is
published having the circulation requir
ed in section one of this act. All acts or
parts of acts in conflict with this act are
hereby repealed. Whereas an emergency
exists, this act shall be in full force from
and after its passage and approval."
Gold mining is being carried on
almost within the corporate limits of
San Francisco. On the beach, three
miles south of Cliff house, an old squat
ter has for years toiled with shovel and
pan, eking out a scanty living by extract
ing gold from the deposits on the shores
by the currents and tides. Experienced
miners have frequently asserted that the
entire coast, from Alaska to Cape Horn,
is full of free gold, and that its success
ful amalgamation was the sole obstacle
to working it. Several weeks ago a
newly invented amalgamator was em
ployed by a company organized for the
purpose, and as a result of fifteen days'
labor three chunks of amalgam are now
at the United States mint from which a
value of from 81.000 to 81,200 is expected
to be developed. Four men are required
for each amalgamator. A machine will
run twenty tons of sand a day, the net
profit being estimated at 82.50 per ton.
The ocean shore, wherever the black
sand exists, is now considered as good as
any quartz mine, and camps are being
established along the beach.
Government ownership of the tele
graph is not at all an exclusive tenet of
the populist party, as Senator Allen
tried to impress upon Ins fellow senators.
On the contrary, the postal telegraph
was repeatedly recommended by repub
lican incumbents of the postmaster gen
eralship, long before the populist
party had existence either in imagina
tion or in fact. Postmaster General
Cresswell recommended the postal tele
graph more than twenty years ago.
Postmaster General Wanamaker advo
cated government ownership of the tele
graph after the populini platforms had
adopted the idea, but no one claimed
that he thereby became a populist. Had
Senator Allen pursued the subject
further he would have discovered that a
very respectable minority of both houses
of congress are favorable to the postal

They had 8500 in their possession, when
they left Mammoth. Thursday the
bodies of both mother and daughter
were found concealed in a brush heap at

Foreigners are not readily deceived
about the tariff. They know when it is

"We seem to be getting back our egg
market across the border. Last week
ten carloads were shipped from Montreal
to New York, and realized a net profit to
the shipper of three cents above what he
could get at home. The demand there is
still far from being exhausted, and
further supplies from Canadian points
will probably find a rising market. This
reminds us of old times. Before the
passage of the McKinley act our exports
across the border ran into quite large
figures, amounting in 1889 to 1,011,017
dozen, of the value of 82,156,725. The
5-cent dutv of that tariff cut down these
exports to" the value of 8324,355 in the
fiscal year ended June 30, 1893. The
present duty is three cents a dozen, a
rate which should not make it impossi
ble to do an egg trade of the former
magnitude with our neighbors."
Miss Florence Betebeneb, a stenog
rapher at Swift's packing honse, is re
covering from an experience which she
does not care to repeat. Her ailment
was prononnced a case of genuine "black
leg." It came first with a fearful burn
ing sensation under the knee, on two,
distinct, black spots the size of pennies.
The two spots merged in one and within
a very short time there was a hollow
scooped right out of the flesh, which
began to fill with gangrene. The dis
ease in cattle is not unlike Texas fever,
but as there is no disease among the
cattle at the packing houses at South
Omaha the cause of Miss Betebener's
trouble is a mystery.
About 3,000 pounds of nitro glycerine

Lower Wages the True Cause of the La
bor Troables at Homestead.
A dispatch from Homestead, Pa., in
reference to the labor troubles there in
consequence of the reduced scale of
wages, stated that "the trouble at
the Homestead steel works of the Car
negie company was caused more partio
ilarly on account of a number of Hun
garians having been assigned to that de
partment than it was by the reduced
This is an attempt to conceal the true
condition of affairs at Homestead. The
fact is that tho workmen could not, or
would not, after trial, continue to work
for the reduced wages which have gone
into effect since the passage of the Gor
man bill. As an evidence of this we
give the following context of the dis
patch: "Superintendent Schwab met the
strikers, and after guaranteeing certain
wages for the rest of the week, whether
or not the mill was worked to its capac
ity, the men returned to work."
There has been a very decided effort
made to suppress the grcst dissatisfac
tion existing, chiefly in ilie iron indus
tries, among workmen who have been
brought face to face with the new con
ditions incident to pauper labor wage
scales. If the facta connected with this
condition can be concealed or confined
within groups, one after another, until
the spirit born of opulent American con
ditions under a truly protective tariff
system is crushed, the triumph of the
conspiracy against the labor of this coun
try, beguu when the Democratic party
went into power, will be complete.
Men will come to accept whatever
may be giveu them in the present as a
matter of course. The only safeguard is
in resisting lawfully every encroachment
upon the labor scale and in making
known every attempt toward reductions
of wages. Reductions so far have been
very serious, but the facts have been
and will continue to be be ventilated so
that tho laborer everywhere may under
stand what is going on all over the
country as well as in his own limited
circle. The wider the discussion the
more permanent will protection be here
after. A Startllns Discovery.
Tho Evil a of Cheapness.
Are cheap things good for anybody?
Yes, apparently for the man who wants
to buy, but certainly not for tho man
who wants to sell, nor yet for the man
whose labor is a factor in producing the
thing sold. Since everything is produced
by labor, no cheapening system can ben
efit it, and incidentally, labor being a
consumer, all of those activities with
which it has business relations suffer to
gether under the reigu of cheapness.

Such meadows her white feet have pressed.
Make her led the prairies nro weaving
Her curtains with flowers and song;
Her sweet sleep shall lie where wild liinN are
Tho' her spirit may sorrow with wrong.
Give her not tears but smiles on her going
That glad angels bear her along.

Where green willows clasp their bright arms.

Editoh Jourxl: I think there is
one thing for the fanners to do this
year, and if the adverse experience of
last season is to be utilized to advantage,
I think Nebraska will come out all right.
I refer to subsoiling, and this nine
tenths of the farmers of the state can do
with ease as we have no stumps to lift
nor stones to turn. It is n certain fact
that if Nebraska farmers had snbsoiled a
few years ago we would have raised 50
per cent, of an average crop of corn and
all other small grain in proportion, be
sides straw for feed, even tho dry season
of 1894. Why should we not subsoil, as
wo have no hard under soil to loosen?
I, for one, will begin this year to sub
soil in the following' manner, which is
something new in this part of the conn
try, and I think it an easy and a good
way. While I have used a lister to plant
part of my corn former years, I will this
year open up the furrows with the lister,
say 12 inches deep, then follow after
with a snbsoiler in the same furrow
another 10 or 12 inches, this to begin
about the first of May, then in about a
week, when tho ground has become
somewhat warm, plant the corn with a
drill. This will give the corn plenty of
loose soil under and it will be covered
with the warm upper soil, consequently
give a vigorous growth.
The next year proceed the same way or
as you think best, but take the strip be
tween the rows so that in two years your
land will be nearly all snbsoiled and if
any rain the water will always draw to
the place last loosened up, consequently
it goes to the roots of the corn.
In working the corn (listed corn) I
have found it to be the easiest, the
quickest, and as good as any other way,
after the corn is up about four to six
inches to take a drag and drag the ridges
down two times at intervals. This will
almost level the land and pulverize the
ground, and work it to the corn gradu
ally; then by going through with the
cultivator once, your corn is finished, and
the field clear from weeds.
The above plan will, I think, be easier
for man and horse; safer for a corn crop,
and will not take so long time as the
former way in plowing all the ground,
and I guarantee that one man with a
little grit and early rising, can tend one
hundred acres to corn so that ho need
not be ashamed of it on the first of
Octoler. Joseph Henooler.

L. W. Platte says that if yon want the
best crops out of Nebraska soil, yon
must plow deep. Mr. Platte, at that

one of the best informed men we ever
met iu regard to Nebraska productions.
The following rnles, first printed in
one of Jacob Abbott's books, have been
of great service to many successful
teachers: "When you consent, consent
cordially. When you refuse, refuse
finally. When you punish, punish good
naturedly. Commend often. Never
scold." If parents and teachers could
follow even the last two precepts, chil
dren would be much better every way,
and would improve amazingly.

T 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. Have two kinds of seed; small
est variety will produce ten to fifteen
bushels of seed and 1 to 1j tons straw
per acre; other more straw and less 6eed.
Hemp 6tands drouth better than any
crop except alfaifa. Improves land
almost as much as clover and can be
grown twenty years in succession on
same land. On good land plowed deep
it made fair crop in 1894. For further

nienry Wallace Out of the Homestead.
Henry Wallace, whose name is synon
ymous with that of the Iowa Homestead,
of which he has been editor for ten years,
is no longer connected with that paper.
Mr. Wallace has always been a strong
anti-monopolist in fact, the present
Iowa railroad law is largely due to his
efforts in the Homestead. His with
drawal from the Homestead was the
culmination of trouble between him and
tho business manager on matters of edi
torial policy, 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 arty
others, who will drop him a postal card.
We will send Wallace's Farm and D&iry
and the Columbus Journal one year for
81.80, payable in advance.
On the margin of The Journal, or

you will find the date to which your sub
scription is paid or accounted for. If
the date is past, you are respectfully re
