Census bulletin No. 193. giving the
agricultural statistics of Nebraska has
been issued and contains information cf
great interest. The farms of Nebraska,
June 1, 1900, numbered 121,525 and were
mined at t577.eeO.02Q. Of thia amount
$91,054,120, or 15.8 per cent represents
the value of buildings and $486,00500
or 8L2 per cent, the value of land and
improvemeuteother than buildings. On
the sums date the value of farm imple
ments and machinery was fZ4,tu,4oo,
and that of live stock, $145,349,587.
These values added to that of farms give
$747,950,057 the total valueot farm prop

29,911,779 acres or 61.6 per cent of the
area of the state of which 18,43296
acres were improved snd 11,749,184 were
unimproved. The average size of the
farms was 246.1 acres. This large aver

WILL URGE TRUST LEGISLATION.
It appears that President Roosevelt is
very much in earnest regarding legisla
tion for the supervision and rsgulstion
of corporstioos doing nn interstate bus
iness says the Omaha Bee. Itwas stated
a few days sgo thst he had been in con
sultation with Representative Littlefield
of Maine, one of the ablest lawyers in
congress, whom he had invited to pre
pare a bill for the regulation of the com
binations to be introduced in congress
with the endorsement and influence of
tbe president back of it. It is now
reported that Mr. Littlefield ia engaged
in drafting a measure and will shortly
have a conference with Mr. Roosevelt
This evidence of the earnest desire of
the president to have enacted legislation
for carrying out the views he expressed
in his first message to congress snd has
repeated several times since, ought to
remove nny doubt thst rosy exist ss to
the presidents sincerity in tbe matter,
aa well as silence nil those who would
discredit his utterances. Mr. Roosevelt
has very clearly defined his position res
pecting national supervision snd regula
tion of the great industrial combinations
snd nowhere more explicitly than in his
Pittsburg address. He does not propose
n wsr of extermination against the com
binations. He does not propose reckless
snd revolutionary saessuree that would
result in general injury to. the business
of the country. What be desires is reas
onable and practicable legislation that
remedy the evils snd abuses now com
plained of, protect the interests of the
public snd not interfere with industrial
progress and prosperity. That ia a
policy which will have the approval of
all rational people.
Mr. Littlefield has ebown s great deal
of interest in this matter and it may
confidently bo expected that he will
frame a bill, with the aasistauoa of the
president and Attorney General Knox,
which will meet the requirementa of the
A oeaik man who receives reports
from sll parte of tbe state said to a rep-
tative of the Lincoln Journal that
he believed two million bushels of wheat
would be the extent of the loss on
account of rains and high water in Ne-
aad that the balance of the crop
would be damaged from 2 to 10 centa a
bushel Notwithstanding the weather
than will be aa enormous yield, esti
mated all the way from 50,000,000 to 00,
000300 bushels, an enormoua increase
over last year. This large yield will
bring ia large revenues despite the dam
sged wheat. Most of the harm promises
to result from the color which will be too
dark on account of rain and thus the
grade of the crop will be lowered. A

Ths battleship Mains, whishi
the spring of 1889, will lsavs for
her builders' test off tbe Delswsre capes
today, Tuesday, says a Philadelphia dis
patch. The trial will take place on
Thursday, snd it is expected the Maine
will be again moored st the shipyard on
Friday. Easily the most powerful bat
tleship that the Cramp yard haa turned
out for the United States nsvy, the
Maine is also planned to be tbe fastest.
She must sttain eighteen knots speed,
the same requirement as for the Russian
battleship Retvizan, recently completed
at the yard. In most respects tbe
Msine snd the Retvizan are alike. The
keel of the new Maine was laid on Feb
ruary 15, 1889, the anniversary of the
destruction of the old Maine in Havana
harbor. There was a delay in her con
struction, resulting from the controversy
over the question of armor plate. 8be
was launched on July 27, 1901, Miss
Mary Preble Anderson of Portland,

being her sponsor. The Msine is 383

Thu Union Pacific strike
ed up to Seturdsy, says a special dis
patch from Omaha to the Lincoln Jour
nal. The company claims to have 65 per
cent of the old force at work. The strik
ers declare there is no truth in the state
ment. The company says it has 510 men
at work in the shops in Omaha. With
those at Council Bluffs the number is
675. The ordinary force in busy times
at these places is 975 men. At Grand
Islsnd snd at Ellis, Kansas, tbe company
claims it has more men than were em
ployed before the strike. It is admitted
that tbe weak place in the force is at
North Platte where very few men are at
work. The strikers assert that they have
not lost a man and that the outlook is
cheerful. A circular has been issued
asking unemployed workmen to keep
away from the towns where Union Pacific
shops sre situated. Tbe boilermakers
have been out five weeks.
Thk official count of the votes cast at
the recent election in Oregon shows a
greater victory for tbe republicans, ex
cept on governor, than any previous
election ever held in the state. The
majority on the two congressmen -is
15,171, against 12,498 in 1900, which was
a presidentisl year. The foreign policy
of Uncle Sam figured in the campaign,
and tbe people there by their votes have
spoken in no uncertain words that they
consider it sll right, and we believe that
Nebraeka will do tbe same at the elec
tion this fslL

The following communication refers
to sn srticle that appeared on the fourth
page of Thk Joubjcai. of June 25th un
der the title "A Brave Drummer Boy:"
PcKinvo, Cola, July 3d, 1902.
Ed. Journal: Last week some one
through The Journal, which I have
read more or leas for over thirty yesrs,
told of Johnny Clem, the drummer boy;
now please sllow me to tell whst I know
of him. In October, 1862, 1 first saw him
at Covington, Ky., bsrefooted snd in
rags, standing behind n tent, taking
shelter from tbe cold wind snd he looked
so forsaken I bad to atop and interview
him. I asked him whose boy be was snd
where his home was? He said he had no
home only with the army. Well, in
about six weeks I found him again in our
regiment, the 112th Illinois, snd he now
had good clothes and he seemed cheerful
nnd hsppy snd I soon found that our
generous and kind-hearted adjutant
claimed him for his boy and he stayed
with the sdjutsnt till near spring, then
went with the 22d Michigan infantry
which waa then in our brigade, and n
little later on tbe brigade was divided
snd the22d, not the 23d at all, waa sent
to tbe army of the Cumberland and we
heard no more of little Johnny till just
after the awful battle of Chickamauga;
then we heard that the 22d waa badly
cut up and many of them captured there,
and that little Johnny had immortalized
himself by shooting n rebel colonel. So
sixteen yesrs ago when be waa a captain
in tbe regular army, I wrote him just to
find out for oertsin that he waa the same
little wait I first saw at Covington in
1862, nndin nfewdsys I got n letter from
him stating that he was the same little
John nnd he wanted to know sbout nil
of our officers ss well as I could tell him,
and I wrote again and asked him to
please tell me the particulars of the kill
ing of the colonel nnd he told me, and it
was. just about aa we had first heard it,
and when Gen. Thomas heard of it be
made him an orderly, and kept him with
him ns such till near the close of the war,
then sent him to a military school for
five years, then President Grant made
him a lieutenant and later Arthur nude
him a captain. He waa only 12 years old
and vary small for that age when he
killed tbe colonel. Now we never saw
him with n drum nor heard of him with
one till last weak through Thk Jockhal.
He was with the 33d Indiana and 14th
Kentucky at Cumberland Gap all sum-
in 1862, nnd I am alasost csrtsia he
not at the battle of Shiloh at all, and
I am also moat aura, little as he was,
that he did not ask nor expect nny
reward for his killing the rebel ooloneL
These old srmy stories get so ealsrged
ns time goes oh I just felt it my duty to
help to right this one, nnd you can tell
what I have to offer through Thb Jodb-
KALif you wish to.

The Nebraska City Tribune truth
fully aaya that children ought to learn
what ia around them. They ought to be
shown how to use their eyes; to know,
remember snd understand the outdoor
things; tbe birds ssd trees, the clouds
and winds. These are the things they
have to live among; it ia like teaching
them the toola of their trade. Such
things do not change. What a man
learna about them when he ia a child, he
can enjoy every year aa long as he lives,
snd pass on to his grandohildren just ss
he received it The schools sre already
overburdened. They are formed, and
try to form the scholars, on models thst
sre very 01a. it is nam, anu mayrje
ought to be hard, to introduce any new
things into the school course. But is it
not strange thst tbe fscts of tbe free
nature that surrounds us every minute,
should be "new things?" Many teachers
today take this matter into their own
hands, just as many teachers have
always done, snd use Saturdays snd
Sundsys of their own time to open their
pupils' eyes to whst is around them.
These are the real "educators" drawers
out, not staffers; to lead a child to think
ia the idea, not to fill him with facts.
But this is sfter sll work thst can best
be done by fstbers snd mothers. And
tbe newspapers that are read in the
homes can help too.
