Acoording to the junior eenator from
New York (Mr. Depew), who should be
an unquestioned authority on railroad
aninoas, the freight carried on the rail
roads of the United States equals the
freight carried on all the other railroads
of the earth and by all the ocean ship
ping. To this should be added our
immense lake and coast trade.
A oommrrb of citizens, headed by
the pablishers of a Boston paper last
Salarday sought relief in the oourts
from the present ooal shortage and high
prices by asking for a receiver for the
coal companies and coal carrying roads.
A bill in equity waa filed in the supreme
court against the following named cor
porations: The Philadelphia k Beading
Railroad eompany; the Central Railroad
of New Jersey; the Lehigh Valley rail
road eompany; the Delaware, Lacka-
waana k Western Railroad company;
the Delaware k Hudson company; the
New York, Ontario, & Western, railroad;
the Erie Railroad company; thePeaxsyl
vania Ooal oompany and the Phila
delphia k Reading Iron k Coal eom
pany. The petitioaers ask that a re
ceiver be appointed for the benefit of all
concerned upon aueh terms and in aueh
manner, aad with such agents and ser
vaats, and with each rates of wages and
other conditions of employment and at
each prices for goods produced and sold,
aa the court ahall from time to tisae
adjadge proper. The bill is based upon
the legal theory of the coal situation,
given by H. W. Chaplin, a lawyer. Mr.
Chaplin says in support of his position
"Since the public have a right in the
mines, a right to have coal forthwith
mined for immediate consumption, and
have a right to have that coal imme
diately transported out of the mine
regions, by the coal carrying roads, a
court of equity, if no other eolation of
the difficulty ia open, has authority to
and upon the application of a repressn
tative proportion of the people undoubt
edly would appoint a receiver or reoeiv
era to take into his or their hands the
whole haeinaai bow in the hands of the
anthracite coal combine, and to run it in
their place." A subpoena to serve on the
def endanta, giving notice of the bringing
of the aait, waa taken oat Monday by
the plaintiff lawyer, and it will probably
be returnable ia November.
Faox year to year, it ia being demon
atrated that Nebraska is in fact though
not fonaerly recognized aa aueh, a win
tar wheat state. In the August (1902)
report of the department of agriculture,
at Washington, showing the estimated
average yield per acre in the principal
states, arranged in the order of acreage,
as follows: Fsnsaa, 8.7; Missouri, 18.12;
California, 15; Indiaaa, 15; Ohio, 16;
Nebraska, 22; Pennsylvania, 15; Okla
homa, 1L6; Miohigaa, 17.4. That the
above report of the average yield per
acre, ao far as Nebraska at least ia con
ceraed,MeoBaervativey correct is ahowa
by the etatietieaa of the Nebraska Grain
Dealers' association, in his crop report,
No. 10, issued September 20, 1902, ahow
iag the following results, that ware ob
taaed from replies received from COO
weU-cbetribated correspondents, who are
coaatry grain dealers ia Nebraska. Thia
ahowa the average yield par acre, ia east

connection with the state Institutions.
Those were the principal spoils of the
fualoBlsts. Into them more than 200
relatives aad friends of fusion leaders
were clandestinely smuggled there to
bo housed, fed and often clothed at
the expense of the state. When the
featonists turned over the Institutions
there were 227 people being fed and
aheitered In them who were neither
employee nor inmates. At one institu
tion two separate tables ware being
asalataiaed for' twenty-seven fusion
paraaltee. At another, one-quarter of
the accommodations was monopolised
by relatives and friends of the official
to charge. At another, outsiders were
takem to aad boarded at the state's ex
pense and for which the state received
ao compensation. And still at another
private house rent and office rent
were paid to coal and groceries stolen
from the state, while at another a fu
alon newspaper plant was given three
rooms with light heat power and a
aumopoly of the job printing, for all
of which the dear taxpayers had to go

The question has been asked repeat

the money appropriated and how did
It happen that when they went out of
office they left behind them $149,000
of unpaid bills?
That question no one but those who
dissipated the funds can answer. The
money was not expended for improve
ments, for the buildings were in a sad
ly dilapidated condition. At the Kear
ney reform school, the buildings were
so near a complete wreck that they
had to be propped up until repairs
could be made. The money waa aot

of it went to "Your Uncle Jake" Wolfe

prices ranging as high aa $124 each.
