Some of the southern congressmen
have been claiming that the national
hankinff evatem was all in favor of the
north, and that the south was being held
down in various ways. They said the
country ought to return to the old state
bank system in order that prosperity
might visit the south. This has led to
an investigation of conditions, and it is
found that in the thirteen southern
states since the election of McKinley the
individual bank deposits have increased
over $110,000,000, and that in manufac
tures and commerce the improvement
has been one hundred per cent in the
three years. The growl comes only from
two or three dyspeptic congressmen.

solicitor for the war department, has

on the legal status of the territory and

acquired. He holds that it requires
additional congressional action to make.
citizens of the inhabitants, and that the
Malaya may be excluded the same as
Chinese now are. It seems that the
treaty with Spain did not give full citi
zenship to the new inhabitants, but ex
pressly said: "The civil rights and
political status of the native inhabitants
of the territories hereby ceded to the
United States shall be determined by
Congress." Without congressional action
they are like other inhabitants who be
come citizens either by birth within the
United States and allegiance thereto, or
by compliance with the naturalization
laws. On this question Magoon cites
many learned authorities.
The argument is being made on the
floor of the house, however, that the
United States having acquired the terri
lory by the treaty and should admit the
Porto Bicans and their products to full
fellowship at one fell swoop without
action by Congress, while the Philip

The war department have announced
the customs receipts in the Philippine
Islands by ports for the month of Novem
ber. The total amount of import duties
collected was $327,007, of which $293,400
was collected at Manila, $18,830 at Iloilo,
and $15,371 at Cebu. The total amount
of export duties collected was $24,912 of
which $8,679 was collected at Manila,
$11,759 at Iloilo and $14,473 at Cebu.
Other dues collected brought the total
collection of customs in the islands for
the month up to $369,308, of which $318,
504 was collected at Manila, 120,704 at
Iloilo and $30,030 at Cebu.
The New York Sun has been counting
up the totals of European emigration
during the century, and finds that the
movement is the greatest of the kind in
history. In the first 20 years of the cen
tury only 250,000 Europeans came to
this country, but between 1820 and 1882
more than 17,000,000 migrated to Amer
ica. In the last named year alone the
United States received 900,000 immi
grants. Since 1882 the European out
pouring to various parts of the world
has been over 12,000,000 souls.
A Trip uietjMn ii Striken Gtliftnli.
Editor Journal: Our trip of five
days from Omaha to San Francisco was
replete with strange yet interesting
scenery, more especially while passing
through Arizona and New Mexico, view
ing the old Spanish towns and ranches
was quite edifying. Then again we
traveled for hundreds of miles through a
long, lonesome, weird stretch of territory
covered with sage brush snd the ever
lasting mountain cactus, over mountain
ranges, through solitary canons and
About dawn of the fifth day. we were
speedily precipitated for miles down an
almost perpendicular indue, from which
we plunged into the lovely Valley of
Pasadena, ornamented its whole length
and breadth with gorgeous homes and
handsome groves of orange, lemon and
olive trees. The houses were almost
covered from view with a draping of
green vines, fragrant shrubbery and
beautiful roses. This sudden and unex
pected transition was bewildering and
completely startled one with delight and
admiration. After speeding through
this productive valley of fruitage and
flowers we were ushered into the famous
city-of Los Angeles, the seat of wealth,
pleasure and longevity.
The distance from here to San Diego
is one hundred and thirty miles, the
whole distance being interspersed with
pleasant villas, picturesque mountain
aad oeeaa views, attractive orchards and
productive valleys. In one large flax
eld of 4,000 acres I observed ten plow
teams with six horses or mules attached
to each plow, and each plow turning over
su furrows. These plowmen leave their
headquarters at sunrise and return about
sunset, making one round each day.
While whirling along by the ocean
aide at the rate of forty miles aa hour at
sundown, one is inspired with a feeling
of awe and wonder as old Sol grandly
liagers yet aarely descends beyond in
the western horizon and drops beneath
the Father of Waters; then tuning ear
eyes eastward we behold the great high
mountain peaks, allies and tributaries of
the Sierra Nevada, reaching far up
among the clouds.
San Diego is a handsome city, with
broad and cleanly streets beginning at
the bay front and reaching out into the
undulating hills; the buildings are usu
ally large with modern design and archi
tecture. Good law and order prevail,
and the citizenship is .first-class. This
also applies to the rural districts. The
Youngs, Boutsons, Arnolds, Mullens,
Sam Smith and Mrs. Stillman, together
with other old Columbus citizens, are
here and appear to be satisfied with their
condition. Over one hundred of the best
and most commodious buildings are used
for lodging apartments; tourists and
citizens alike take meals at the cafes and
restaurants; one sits down to the dinner
table with strangers and rises well
acquainted. Everybody here, old and
young, male and female, Chinamen, Mex
icans, soldiers and Bailors, all use the
wheel, as bicycling is excellent on
account of asphalt streets and dry,
U. S. Grant, jr., son of the greatest
warrior of the Nineteenth century, owns
a magnificent home here, situated on a
prominent eminence in the heart of the
city, from which a splendid view of the
interesting surroundings of city and bay
is obtained, viz: Coronado Island, on
which is established the noted and the
best patronized hotel resort on this con
tinent (the Hotel del Coronado) with
nine hundred rooms, and which is at the
present accommodating over 1,000 guests,
many of whom are millionaires. The
cost of this handsome and immense
structure was two millions, and is prin
cipally owned by J. D. Spreckles, the
sugar king and multi-millionaire.
Point Loma, to the west, presents a
beautiful picture, majestically reaching
up out of the ocean's depths several
hundred feet high, and on its highest
pinnacle is located the government light
house; this celebrated place is gained by
boat, or stage around the peninsula.
Then directing our observation south
many miles the great Tia Juana moun
tains across the border in Old Mexico
are plainly visible.
In our sight-seeing we visited the pop
ular battleship "Iowa," which lies

Everyone remembers this monster of our
navy as doing such good execution at

Our numerous and dear old Nebraska
friends of many years ago, seem to vie
with each other in their kindly efforts to
entertain us and make our stay pleasant
and enjoyable. Only think of the con

People here are quite sociable. They
appear to live easy and enjoy life. Even
the dogs and cats look amiable and are
sleek, fat and saucy.
I could write volumes of the natural,

to the subject, and conditions that pre

America, and not wishing to occupy too
much of your valuable space, or to im

readers, will at once break away.
