Uncoln Cerrespondence: Members
of the smajority4n the legislature, be

economy, are interested in the pros

deemed necessary by state omcers and
'superintendents of state Institutions,
not including new buildings, axgrc
gate I2.C13.235. This total Includes
appropriations for. deficiencies
amounting- to $186,785. It includes
also a- deicieiency of $125,000 in
bounties on beet sugar, and a defici
ency of about 150,000 for bounty on
wild animals. The grand 'total acked
to ran the state for two years and pay
the deficiencies mentioned is $2.8L'3,
St. " In round numbers the amount asked
for to defray necessary expenses is
two million and a-half dollars. Tak
ing it for granted that the state insti
tutions can get along on less than -the
amount asked, there is good prospect
for the legislature to finish its work
with a low grand total appropriation.
It is not likely that there will be any
new buildings provided for -by the
coming legislature. Two years a;.o

legislature appropriated $2,366,843.

A Librarian Organisation
D, A, Campbell, clerk of the supreme
court, says a Lincoln dispatch, has
just returned from a two weeks' visit
to Washington. While there he at
tended a meeting of the state librar
tans of the various states, the object
of the meeting being to form an organ
ization to provide for the free ex-
change of all state reports and docu
ments between the various states. At
present Nebraska, and some of the oth
er states send out copies of all thd
documents produced officially; but
some of the states are not s6 free td
make these exchanges. Mr. Campbell
believes that much progress was madd
at the meeting and that the Nebras

copies of all the reports and documents
Issued by all the other stales.

where a district .judgeship becomes

Frost of this county. Tuttle was ap
pointed by the governor to fill the va
cancy caused by the death of Judge
Hall. Ifrost was elected to the place
at the recent election, and the question
is Whether the term of the newly elect
ed judge begins immediately after thd
election or on the first day of the ett

Paris, Dec. 10. SenorMontero Rio
president of the Spanish peace com
mission', and Scnor Ojeda, secretary of
that commission, are still confined to
their beds. The illnes3 of Senor Ojeda'
aciays engrossing tho treaty, and it is
doubtful whether it will lie signed be
fore Monday. The Americans held
their usual session this morning. The
Spaniards continue making bitter com
ments conc2raiag President McKin
ley's reference to the Maine.
When a correspondent approached
Scnor Garnica of the Spanish commis
sion for further details of the treaty,
he said: "The exact number of arti
cles. is still undetermined. It depends
upon how Secretaries Ojeda and Moore
divide the treaty. It may be twelve or
twenty articles The Americans are
to pay the Philippine indemnity With
in three months Of the .ratification;
Wc shall appoint consuls id Cuba;
Porto Rico and the Philippine islands
without delay. The Cuban consulwiU
be accredited to the powers-thai be."
Aslrcd why tlia Spaniards refnssd'to
grant the ' United States a coaling
station in the Caroline islands, Senor
Garnica said: ,;The Americans could
hardly expect that we should agree to
discuss matters outside of the proto
col after the lessons we have had from
then on this point. When we wished
to discuss the Cuban debt they abso
lutely refused to consider it; and then
they ask for whatever they . want.
Qacllc toupet! (What cheek). Yet the
Cuban debt remains an important ques
tion for settlemsnt."
In regard to the Spaniards' final
protest on the subject of the Maine,
Scnor Garnica added: "That protest
now becomes history, as.it was em
bodied in tha protocol It is neither
loyal nor just that this thing should
hang over the reputation of Spain. Wo
caunotsnbmittoit. tt must be cleared
up, ia justice to ourselves. There are
many other causes to bring hatred be
tyvosn tiie two nations without the ad
ditioa of such a one as this.
"Jls to the future relations of the
two countries, that is one of the
things history alone can determine.
Mcny nations which have been deadly
enemies arc speedily reconciled."
Seuor Garnica Was then questioned
as to the future of tho Philippine isl
ands and lie slid: "The United States
has inaugurated a policy which Will
bring it much trouble and many re
sponsibilities." The protocol of the treaty will al
most reach the dimensions of a volume,
as it will contain every written state
ment presented on both sides during
The Spaniards made a last contribu
tion yesterday upon the assembling of
the commission?: Scnor Montcro Rios
then presented a vigorously worded
protest, in which the Spaniards de
clared they had yielded to force, but
they invoked the conscience of the na
tions against the abuse of tho rights
of nations, of which they were the vic
tims. The protest was for the pur
pose of record.
The protest concluded; ''Btit these
Concessions which wc were' obliged to
make touch us less than the insult,
which has been afflicted oil odr nation
by President McKinley in his message.
We again protest solemnly against the
accusation hurled against us iu con
nection with the Maine, arid wc intend
-to again submit the question to an in
ternational tribunal, comprised of En
gland, France and Germany, to deter-
mine who shall bear the respdnsibility
of the catastrophe."'
iVn important provision is the guar-
antcc of religious freedom in the Ceded
territories, in tli3 saine .terms as the
Florida treaty, the Americans having
steadfastly refused to incorporate any
guarantca of the United States deter
mination to favor tlu property of the
Catholic ehurcli, leaving it subject to
the general laws, upon the same foot

the possibility of a hitch in the pro

Howard says the governor treated him

The .American Farmer is sincere in
what it says and whenever it endorses
an article, be it machinery, proprietary
medicine, or a man individually, we
want our readers to believe that what
we say we have good reason to under
stand is true. For a year or more
there have been endorsements of the
Swanson Rheumatic Cure Company, of
167 Dearborn street, Chicago, by this
paper. People have written us to
know if this company Is responsible,
and if its remarkable remedies, for the
cure of rheumatism, neuralgia, dyspep
sia, catarrh, kidney troubles, etc. real
ly had merit. We have therefore been
at extra pains to investigate, and once
again we add emphasis to our former
endorsement of that company. There
may be Isolated cases here and there
which, probably through neglect in fol
lowing directions, or from exposure or
some unexplainable reason, the won
derful Five Drops remedy does not do
the work. But it is a case where the
exception proves the rule. Mr. Swan
son is a gentleman of character and
personal Integrity, and, we believe,
would no more attempt to deceive the
public than the writer of this article.
They still offer to send a sample bot
tle of "5 Drops" for 25c or a large
bottle, 300 doses, for SI, prepaid by
mail or express. Address as above.
