Oscbol was in the midst of a coal

Tkk years ago alfalfa was almost an,
unknown quantity in .this .state. It is

The spread of the foot and month dis

WHO'LL GET THE CANALT
The following taken from the Fremont
Tribaae will be interesting to readers
here, inasmuch as Columbus people be
lieve they have just about as good a
chance as any of securing a water power:
Secretary Hanson of the Commercial
elab spent the day and evening Monday
in Omaha, looking after Fremont's' inter
ests in connection with the power canal
mooting held the same night in that city.
Eagiaeer Andrew Rosewater has been
following up. bie usual tactics of corral
jog the situation' for his own individual
beneft, by attempting to secure the pas
sage of an ordinance giving him an indi
vidual franchise in Omaha for putting
ia power distributing wires and connec
tions. Fremont was requested by the
Omaha interests, which have been co
operating with this city and putting up
money, to be represented. The Fremont
Commercial club's position has been that
it doss not care especially what interests
construct the canal, be it Rosewater or
anyone else, but naturally, from common
knowledge of and experience with the
latter it cannot have confidence in his
ability or disposition to do so.
The meeting that night was a charac
teristically Omaha session full of violent
personalities, denunciations and inter
ruptions and that bland confidence in
the effectiveness of hot air only for canal
construction purposes which Fremont
has seen so much of in this connection
in the metropolis. Fremont being loudly
called for at the meeting, Secretary Han
son responded and stated some canal
facts. Among other things he compli
mented the meeting on thelight-hearted-ness
with which it contemplated canal
construction. He said that ten years of
continuous, persistent, diligent effort in
that direction by Fremont had taught it
that it was not such a "dead easy "thing,
and he noticed that it was the interests
connected with the Fremont enterprise,
local and in New York, and not Omaha,
that had paid the bills for demonstra
tion up to date; that Fremont felt no
antagonism to Mr. Rosewater, but simply
knew that it was an enterprise financially
of too great magnitude and difficulty for
him to swing that it was out of his line,
as he was an engineer, not a financier or
The meeting adjourned without en
dorsement of Mr. Rosewater, the latter
saying in the violent style of the gather
ing, that he had been "sandbagged."

AjnmnEB of Fremont business men
formed a company last year for the pur
pose of raising sugar beets, and last
week a summing up of the business was

leased 480 acres more for the coming
