Considerable corn has already been
husked in the vicinity of Fremont and
many farmers report the quality of the
corn much better than anticipated.
There is not much soft corn, but some

An interesting experiment was made

The election of J. H. Mickey by such

no stone unturned to elect their "Little
Giant," proves to all fair-minded men
that this certainly is a sure republican
state. Stand up for Nebraska.
C. D. Caspeb of the David City Press
in closing an editorial on the recent
election in that county deplores the fact
that the republicans were successful in
carrying the county when several years
ago the fusionists boasted of a thousand
majority, saya: "It is not easy to smile
with your mouth full of quinine, but that
is what fusionists must learn to do."
Rehtbucaxs read with amusement
the declaration of Judge Howard in the
Columbus Telegram that the railroads,
'"booted and. spurred," are now in pos

the things that has brought about its
defeat year after year since 1897. State

President Roosevelt has been indorsed
by the American people. In the elec
tions last Tuesday every republican state
of the middle west and the northwest
gave more than the accustomed off year
majority for republican candidates.
In New York, where the moat deter
mined fight was made by a reunited
democracy against the Roosevelt poli
cies, and most particularly againat hie
policy toward the trusts, the republican
majority is as large aa it waa in 1898,
when Roosevelt himself waa a candidate
In all the large cities of the country
except Boston, in all the strong states,
including Pennsylvania and Indiana, the
republicans have gained ground.
The main contest was on congress.
Here national issues were at the front,
and the fact that the fifty-eighth congress
will have probably aa large a republican
majority aa the fifty-seventh is the
strongest possible indorsement of Pres
ident Roosevelt and his policies.
In the results in the several states and
in the heavy vote in the congressional
districts, President Roosevelt will read
the verdict of the people. He has won.
The seal of the nation's approval is upon
him. Chicago Inter Ocean.
AS TO IRRIGATION.
In an address by George H. Maxwell
before the Omaha Commercial club
recently on "Reclamation of the Arid
Region" he said:
"In the next two years there will be
about $10,000,000 available for construc
tion because we started with a fund of
nearly $6,000,000 when the bill was
passed. This fund of $10,000,000 is aa
much as can be wisely expended during
the next two or three years.
It will be enough to build a few great
reservoirs and main line canals as object
lessons to prove the truth of our claims
to the eastern people of what can be
accomplished by national irrigation. It
is not material where these projects may
be located. Our association will back
up the Interior Department in any selec
tion they may make. But the people of
any section of the west who unite their
forces can do much to promote the con
struction of any particular project if it
MMConon every merit and promise of
I would urge the organization of a
section of the National Irrigation Asso
ciation in every city and town in the
west to study and to teach the true
principles of thia whole irrigation prop
aganda. It is not limited to government con
struction. It covers the whole field of
private irrigation enterprise; of the
organization of water companies; of the
betterment of our laws of water along
right lines; of artesian development and
of pumping for irrigation from every
And last but not least it takes in tha
whole field of forestry. The bleak plains
of western Nebraska should be dotted
with forest groves planted by Uncle Sam.
Every farmer should be induced to plant
trees and then to plant more trees. The
children in your schools should be
taught to love the trees and to preserve
those we have and plant more every year
until the whole state of Nebraska is dot
ted over with groves of beautiful trees."
In an article occupying almost a col
umn The Columbus Telegram relates
that several section men working for the
Union Pacific railroad were taken out of
town on election day before the polls
opened and not returned until it was too
late to vote. These men, The Telegram
says, would have voted for W.H.Thomp
son for governor and were anxious to do
so, but the corporation cormorants
blocked the game and for base partisan
purposes deprived them of their sacred
right as citizens of this republic If
Howard is right, the Union Pacific rail
road company ought to be ashamed of
itself. These men were entitled to ex
press their choice of law-makers and
executive officers with the same freedom
accorded to the patriots of Lincoln who
went to the polls and forgot to vote for
W. B. Price for county attorney. But
let us analyze the vote of Columbus and
see if Judge Howard in his mad haste
has not made a mistake. In the First
ward, where we once ran for alderman
and received 54 votes against 185 for
August Boettcber, 66 ballots were cast
for J. H. Mickey to 222 for W. H. Thomp
son. If any of Mr. Thompson's sup
porters were kidnaped in the First ward,
you will have to give us their names and
when, if ever they were naturalized.
The Second ward shows 74 for Mickey
and 132 for Thompson. This isn't so
bad, but it is so emphatically democrat
ic that one must be a political ingrate
who would cry for more. But here is
the mysterious feature of the returns.
The Third ward of the city of Columbus
has always been republican. In the
past it has stood pat when all other
parts of the county went plunk and
look at it now, 105 votes for Mickey to
136 for Thompson. There are but two
ways to account for this remarkable
decadence in the morals of the Third
ward, either republican voters were de
bauched by the use of democratic money
or some of them were spirited away in
the early hours of the morning and kept
in hiding until after the mischief was
accomplished. The Third ward of Co
lumbus is in disgrace for having per
mitted so great a calamity to come to
pass at a time when no man could offer
a plausible excuse for voting the demo
cratic ticket Bixby in State Journal
The folowing from the Fremont Trib
une gives an account of an old-time
Nebraskan, well known to many Jour
sal readers in this section: "Seth P.
Mobley, formerly of Grand Island, for
thirty years in the newspaper business
there, was in the city Tuesday night, a
guest of Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Tracy. Mr.
Mobley baa for a little more than three
years been in the revenue service in
Manila. In August he was granted a
vacation, to come home on a visit. He
has since then been making the journey.
He came by way of the Suez canal and
the east, being on the ship seventy days
to Boston. After visiting a week or two
at Grand Island he will resume his
journey, reaching Manila again about
Christmas. Mr. Mobley is looking the
picture of health. The climate there
agrees with him perfectly, and with the
members of his family. He is chief of
the consular and statistical department
of the Philippines customs service, hav
ing about twenty clerks under him.
The revenues of the islands, he says,
areauScient to meet the requirements
for all purposes except the maintenance
of the army, they being about $4,000,000
a year. One who baa been in the islands
he saya, aa long aa I have, can actually
see the stages of progress aa they come
into being. I think it positively is a
fact that in the last twelve months there
has been more progress than in any
twelve years in the previous history of
the city of Manila and adjacent territo
ry. A vast amount of building is going
on; American thrift and induatry is pro
jecting into all channels. When we went
to the islands we found them asleep.
The old natives and Spaniards were lost
in a lethargic dream and cared little or
nothing for commercial or industrial
advancement But these fellows have
been awakened by American ways and
now they are assimilating these modern
customs with commendable progress.
The better class of the natives have
learned that it is to their own advantage
to become Americanized aa rapidly
aa possible and these now show
a remarkable anxiety to acquire all the
knowledge they can."

GERHARD BORCHERS MURDERED.
His Fenrteen-Tsmr-Olsl Step-San is
HeU fer the Criame.
One of the most cold-blooded and hor
rible crimes ever committed in Platte
county was the murder of Gerhard Bor
chers, a well-to-do farmer living three
miles northeast of Humphrey, a week
ago last Friday. The murder waa com
mitted by the step-eon, Herman, who had
purchased a shot gun the Wednesday
before for the premeditated purpose of
taking the life of bis step-father. Two
younger boys were parties to the crime,
but claim that the older one committed
the deed. The boys are Herman, aged
14, August aged 12 and John, 8 years old.
Mrs. Borchers, the mother of the boys,
died last spring leaving an infant and
four other children to mourn the loss of
a mother and wife. His intense feeling
in the death of his wife deeply affected
Mr. Borchers and the gloom and sadness
that pervaded the home ia probably the
cause of this unnatural occurrence. It
is hard to believe that three young boys
could have planned and executed so
dreadful a crime without the sad condi
tion of absence of kind home influences.
The story aa told by the boys, after
going through a cross-questioning by
Sheriff Byrnes, is about as follows: The
boys bought a shot gun the Tuesday
before, hiding it in the barn. About 9
o'clock Friday morning Herman quietly
slipped up behind his step-father, firing
about six inches from his head killing
him instantly. The boys then dragged
the body, out of the house, thence to an
old straw stack, and placing a load of
fresh straw on top of the body, set fire
to it On Saturday the boys went to
town and wanted to purchase a water
tank of a merchant but he refused to
sell it to them without an order from
their father. The boys stated they did
not know where their father. was that
he had left home. Friends of Mr. Bor
chers were notified, and after a search
the charred body of the man was found
in the burned straw stack.
Sheriff Byrnes was notified and a close
investigation made. After cross-examination
of the boys the above story waa
got from them.
The coroner's jury composed of D. T.
Bobison, Charles Schueth, Nels Peter
eon, Peter O'Shea, Jacob Fischer and
Con Heesecker, with Dr. McKinley aa
acting coroner, rendered a verdict accus
ing Herman Borchers of the crime and
implicating August and John aa parties
to the murder by the fact that they
knew and had discussed among them
selves and pre-arranged the murder.
Herman and August are in the jail
here but John, the youngest son, was
allowed to return home with hie uncle,
The funeral of Mr. Borchers waa held
Sunday morning in Humphrey from the
German Baptist church of which he waa
The deceased wss highly respected bv
all who knew him and waa never known
to be cruel to hia family. He waa about
53 years old and a native of Germany.
