The month of February, 1900, has made the most remarkable re
cord of any February in the history of our foreign commerce. The
total exports were:

The excess of exports over imports is also greater by about the same
William Jennings Bryan's statement
to the effect that the farmers of the
United States are not getting on as well
as they ought seems to differ materially
from the opinion of those who make close
study of such matters. The American
Agriculturist for March says: "The im
provement in agricultural conditions
now, contrasting with the depth of the
depression in 1894-G, is as little appre
ciated by the outside public as was the
farmer's condition during the hard times.
It is conservative, however, to say that
the produce of the United States farms
for the past year was worth to the farm
ers over $1,GOO,000,000 more than in
either of the depressed years noted.
This is an average advance of 31 per cent
in values, compared with the low point
The live stock of the country is said to
be worth $700,000,000 more than during
the hard times, or a gain of 38 per cent.
Staple crops are worth $400,000,000 more
than then, while other crops show an
increase of $20,000,000 in valne.or a gain
of 25 per cent compared with the depres
sion of 95 and ,9& The products of
live stock, such as meats, dairy products,
calves, mutton, sheep and lambs, hides
and pelts, colts, mules, etc, are said to
show a gain of $370,000,000, or 40 per
cent above the low point." The farmers
are all right.
Gen. Henry Harnden, commander of
the Wisconsin department, Grand Army
of the Republic, and who commanded
the Wisconsin troops that, with a Mich
igan company, captured Jeff. Davis, died
of pneumonia the evening of March 17,
at Madison, Wisconsin. Gen. Harnden
was born in Massachusetts in 1823, roved
the sea for several years, was in Califor
nia in 1838, and again a decade later,
participated in the Mexican war; was
several times wounded in the Civil war,
captured Jeff. Davis, was for ten years a
revenue collector and has lived in com
fortable retirement ever since. A widow
and four children survive him.
Funny, isn't it! Three years ago Wil
liam J. Bryan, in nearly all his speeches,
for some reason or other, took occasion
to let his audiences know how poor in
purse he wan, informing them that
about all the wealth he possessed in the
world was tied up in an acre patch
planted to corn. The statement is now
made that he recently invested $40,000
in registered United States four per
cent bonds in the name of his wife.
Conditions must be very favorable in a
country that will allow a man to make
such a sum of money in so short a time
withont extra exertion. General Pros
perity is certainly a great fellow.
Sailing under the surface of water has
been accomplished, a successful trial
trip having been made Wednesday, a
number of dives being made by men in a
sub-marine torpedo boat. On the first
dive it remained submerged for ten min
utes, going in a straight away course,
about a mile. Coming up after this run,
she discharged a torpedo from her tor
pedo tube at an imaginary enemy's ves
sel, and then turning, dived again imme
diately and came up some distance away.
A succession of short dives were then
made. Members of the congressional
party who witnessed the exhibition, con
sider the boat a success.
E. F. Holmes has been on trial at
Omaha, charged with forgery. He was
a curbstone ticket broker during the
two expositions, one of his favorite
schemes being to secure tickets on which
the limit had about expired and by fill
ing the punch holes indicating the
dates, with paper of the same color as
the body of the transportation, would
punch new holes putting the date of ex
piration ahead to suit his convenience.
Hundreds of them were passed upon
train men and passenger officials before
the forgery was detected.
The guaranty bond companies, it is
said, are beginning to assume the right
to dictate employes for those whom they
guarantee. It is clearly their right to
object to employes, whose career has
shown them incompetent or unfaithful,
because such persons would tend to ren
der their risk more hazardous; other
wise, their assumption should be met
with a firm denial. The public are en
titled to some rights which the guaranty
companies will be made to respect.
After this, a hundred working hours
in ten days is to be the maximum ex
acted of any railway employe in France,
and no consecutive stretch of more than
twelve hours is to be tolerated. We
judge that the number of railroad acci
dents will be wonderfully decreased, if
this law is obeyed. The people who work
for their living do not ask for charity
bestowed upon them, in any case, but
for justice, fair treatment and honorable

By the Columbus papers we see that
there were a large number of land trans
fers in Platte connty during February.
In the purchase of these farms part of
the price was given as a mortgage back
on the land. Yet the records show that
$17,363 more of mortgages were paid off
than were filed. That's prosperity for

else to make republicans thick up in

that the democratic candidate nominated

in 1888. A like fate, that paper thinks,

Notwithstanding the disagreeably cold
weather of Thursday, there were a con

the exercises in Frankfort square.
A delay of nearly an hour was made
by receipt of a telegram from G. A. R.
comrades on their way by train, but
finally, Baker Post with its accessions
signified readiness to move and the line
of march was taken up from their hall

At the Park, there was au endeavor to
form a square with the speaker's stand
at the east side, the Evans Rifles
at the west, the G. A. R. .comrades
at the north and south. The Rifles held
their own very well during the services,
but the other three lines gave way more
or less against the constant and pene
trating pressure of the cold wind.

Remarks of J. H. Galley in turning
over the monument to Baker Post:
Mr. Commander of Baker Post No. 9,
G. A. R.: In behalf the monument com
mittee it gives me great pleasure to meet
you and so many of my comrades and
citizens today, and it may be well to ex
plain how it came about, after so many
years, to erect this memorial shaft.
From our honored mayor's great desire
to salute, not only our own brave 'boys"
of Company "K", but all the volunteers
that might be going or returning from
the Philippine Islands, conceived the
idea that fire bells, steam whistles, bombs
and crackers, were hardly suitable for
military display. He urged Baker Post
to secure from the government a cannon
so that the people of Columbus might
salute each Glorious Fourth in a becom
ing manner, but Baker Post not wishing
to be responsible for any accident, de
cided to get some ordnance cannon and
erect a Soldiers' monument, and on the
17th day of September, 1898, a committee
was appointed by the commander of
Baker Post to confer with the Ordnance
department and devise ways and means,
to erect a monument to commemorate
the lives of the Soldiers and Sailors of
the Civil War; and as the result.of their
labor I have the pleasure to present to
you this monument, that it may be ded
icated by you and your comrades to the
noble purpose for which it has been
erected. And like our silent comrades
these cannon will never more belch forth
fire and destruction, but, like this shaft,
be as reminders of war's dire commotion.
Poet Commander E. O. Rector then
proceeded with services calling upon
Adjutant D. N. Miner, Officer of the
DayR L. Boasiter, Senior Vice Com
mander W. A. McAllister, Junior Vice
Commander E. H. Funk, Chaplain A. W.
Clark to assist in their appropriate
places in the ceremony.
The iag was then slowly raised while
the baad played The Star-Spangled
Banner;" a symbol for the sailors, an
anchor, and a musket for the soldiers,
were plaeed against the monument;
Clarence Clark aad George Bushel, each
in appropriate uniform, personated re
spectively the sailors aad the soldiers,
while Ed. Albaaga, Las Bollia and
Jessie Keller acted as gasrd of honor.
The prayer of dedication by tha chap
lain and scripture quotations appro
priate to the occasion, were followed by
a salute and the presentation of the
monument to the city.
Remarks of J. H. Galley in turning
over the monument to the City Council:
Honorable Mayor and Members of the
City Council of Columbus, Nebr.: As
chairman of the monument committee,
it gives me great pleasure this day to
meet so many of my fellow citixens on
this occasion who have assembled here
to participate in dedicating this monu
ment. In' behalf of the comrades of Baker
Post No. 9, G. A. R, I wish to thank the
citizens of Columbus for their generous
contributions that made it possible for
ns to erect this monumental shaft to the
memory of those soldiers and sailors,
both on land and sea, who offered their
lives for the security of the citizens, and
the unity of the states. Though silent,
it is sacred to every loyal and patriotic
heart; it needs no words to assure us
that our dead are held in remembrance.
It is an object lesson to our children, of
the patriotism of tuuir siren. It is sig
nificant of brave and loyal obedience to
the command of the nation in the days
of its peril.
Mr. Mayor and members of the Coun
cil of the City of Columbus, and your
successors: In behalf of Baker Post No.
9, department of Nebraska, G. A. R, I
now place in your care Hub monument.
May its silence ever impress upon you
the sacredness of the trust; may you
ever guard it, in memory of those who
fought for the unity of our nation, and
the preservation of our glorionaflag
that its stars and stripes might float over
a united nation. In a few short years
this great army of veterans will have
passed away to the great beyond where
the tap of the drum will fail to awake
them. Soon, but few will answer to the
roll call of their posts on Memorial day
to decorate the graves of their comrades,
but this shaft may, by your care, stand
for all time, as an emblem of the pa
triotism of Ihe citizens of Columbus,
and our loyal dead.
Mayor Fitzpatrick responded.
Mr. Chairman: As I look backward
over life's pathway, I see many, many
bright and happy days, and many pleas
ant occasions. And Mr. Chairman, let
me assure you that the pleasure of being
privileged to be present here today and
to receive from your hands this precious
document, given in behalf of Baker Post
No. 9, to the city of Columbus. It is a
pleasure that crowns all storms, a pleas
ure that I shall never forget. It is an
honor that I am proud of and why should
I not be?
The pleasure of witnessing these im
pressive ceremonies coupled with your
eloqnent address, in presenting that
monument, that beautiful shaft to the
city of Columbus, has carried many of
us, all, I will say, back to the scenes of
our boyhood, back to the dark, stormy
days of the early sixties. Yon hear again
that Fort Snmpter has fallen; you see
again the dark war clouds rolling over
our fair land; you are among the first to
respond to the president's call for volun
teers; yon feel again the fond embrace of
your weeping mother and sisters; a fare
well kiss and yon are off for the war.
As you near the corner of the street or a
bend in the road yon slacken your pace,
you halt and look backward. Love
beckons yon to return. Duty leckons
yon forward. Your first battle is being
fought. Duty is victorious and yon start
forward a man, a soldier, an American
volunteer, one of God's noblemen,
going forth of your own free will to bat
tle for the union of states.
There is no body of men, no organiza
tion on God's footstool more deserving
of a monument to their memory and
heroism, than the American volunteer.
I mean yon comrades of the civil war.
Yon who at the fatal battle of Bull Run
faced overpowering numbers. You bat
tled with the enemy hour after hour,
until they advanced on yon forty thous
and strong and forced yon to retreat,
leaving fifteen hundred dead and wound
ed on the field.
Yon who faced the storm of shot and
shell at Fort Donaldson and forced Gen.
Buckner to surrender with fifteen thous
and prisoners. You who battled at Mal
vern Hill, and Winchester, yon whose
souls were tried in the two days terrible
battle at Shiloh, where twenty thousand
lay dead and wounded on the field.
Again yon are at the second battle of
Bull Run. Yon have not forgotten your
retreat of the year before. You have
not forgotten the dead and dying com
rades you were forced to leave on that
awful field. A homely saying will apply
to this case:
"He that fiirhta and rnns awar.
May live to fight another day."
And you whipped, routed, and scattered
the enemy. Your comrades of the year
before were avenged. You who at Vicks
burg battled almost daily for three long
months. And when Sheridan was twenty
miles away you were battling with Early
and his army at Cedar Creek. When he
was ten miles away you were bravely
holding yonr own, and when he was only
five miles away yon were wavering,
struggling, and when he came dashing
down the road on that famous black,
foaming ateed, your ranks were broken.
And with what waving in the air he
dashes along your line, yon hear the in
spiring words, "Turn the other way, boys,
we are going the other way." Then with
bayonets fixed and a cheer that made the
woods ring, you turned the other way,
and turned defeat into a glorious victory.
You were at Spottsylvania with Grant
when he sent his famous dispatch to
President Lincoln: "We will fight it out
on this line if it takes all summer."
Gettysburgh made the name of the
American volunteer famous the world
over. After the smoke of this awful
battle had cleared away, over twenty
thousand of dead and wounded were
found on the field. Your heart beats
faster when in spirit you again scale the
heights at Mission Ridge and rout the
enemy from every point, and with that
grand man, Gen. Sherman at yonr head,
you start on that famous' march "from
Atlanta to the eea," your march home
ward. A few months more and you return
home crowned with victory, after five
years of a most bitter struggle, a hero in
the hands of your friends. But you have
a duty to perform, a sacred duty that
you promised to your dying comrade.
You Tint he home of mourning. You
lost playmate, a schoolmate, a comrade.
They lost a son, a brother, who at the
first call for volunteers went forth to
fight for that flag, fou faced the
enemy's guns in every battle. You fought
the eneoy,-an to man, and your hero
ism in every battle in which you fought
was never questioned, but to deliver the
last message of your dead comrade to
that broken-hearted mother and sister
was more than you could do. You could
not find words, but your heart went out
in sympathy, and you wept with them in
And in conclusion, Mr. Chairman, I
will say in behalf of the city of Colum
bus and in the presence of our distin
guished guests, his excellency Governor
Poynter, commander of the Grand Army
Evans, and in the presence of your wives
and children, that we accept this sacred
gift, and we will consider it a most sacred
duty to guard and protect it at all times
and under all circumstances. And,
pointing as it does, heavenward, may it
stand, and may the honored names in
scribed thereon shine brighter and
brighter through sunshine and storm for
centuries to be.
