At a mssting of the council on April
10 Qmnoilman A. W. Clark introduced
asBotioa before that body to make the
Telegram the oaVial paper for the com

Phillipps. Mr. Galley spoke frankly
upon the subject, ssying that he thought
the printing should be left to bids from
the dafsrsnt newspaper oftcee; that it
wasa matter of business for the city and
that all the papers represented tax pay
ers and were therefore entitled to recogr
nition. The motion presented by Mr.
dark named no rate for which the print
ing should be done, and all supposed it
to be at the full legal rate, although the
Telegram had been receiving one-half
the legal rate the past year for the work
performed. Mr. Clark contended that
the city should pay full legal rate for the
printing, and said that the council should
have the city work done in good form,
and he thought it was not customary for
the council to let the work to bids.
Galley and Sheldon both said that the
council were there to demand good ser
vice, that any of the printing offices were
Tenable, and Mr. Galley referred the
council to the action of the board in
years past when the republicans held the
balanoeof vote, and when they had let

offered an amendment to the resolution
of Mr. Clark to offer the printing to the
lowest bidder. The amendment carried,

At the meeting of the council last
Friday evening, when the clerk announc

Mayor Becher asked what the wish of
the council was. Phillipps made a
motion to the effect that the bids be
indefinitely laid upon the table without
reading and that the Telegram be made
the omcial paper and to be given the
city printing at three-fourths of the legal
rate. The motion was seconded by Clark.
Galley offered an amendment by request
ing that the bids be ordered read, and
the amendment was lost. When the vote
was east the Telegram received the sup
port of all the democrats, Clark, Greisen,
Geitzen and Phillipps, while Galley and
Sheldon voted against the motion.
The legal printing amounted to be
tween $150 and $200 the past year.
As Mr. Howard ssys in the last issue
of the Telegram under an editorial entit
led "Some Day," The best public official
is the one who best guards the interest
of the people." It is a good motto to
follow by all.
Tote fair, boys; an open field without
favor will injure no one.
NEWSPAPERS AND THE FAR
MERS. An exchange very sensibly remarks
that it is high time that newspapers look
elsewhere than to farmers for subjects
for jests and cartoons. In this country
there are upward of 6,000,000 of fanners
who own their own land, their hones,
cattle, sheep and hogs and the aggregate
of their wealth is greater than the com
bined richness of the steel trust, the
Standard Oil company and of all the
railroads of the United States. They
live comfortably and they enjoy life.
Place them side by side with city people
and they will compare most favorably
with these in intelligence and in educa
tion. They are sensible and conserva
tive. They believe in law and order.
They select good men as candidates for
office and usually elect such. All of
their influence is cast for what is best in
manhood and they are intensely patriot
ic. Aa a class, they are just, upright
and honest. Newspapers which hold
them up to ridicule belittle themselves
when they do it. Farmers are readers
of newspapers, snd above any other class
are educated to rely upon advertise
ments to tell them where to go snd buy

I have just come in from observing the
restber conditions. The ground is
frosen and ice baa formed a quarter of
aa inch in thickness. Not much corn
has been pbmted but what little is in the
ground is liable to rot with so much
moisture. Where the wheat is not cov
ered with snow, I fear some damage will
result but this will not be serious. The
apple crop will probably be seriously
affected bat cherries and peachea are
more hardy and I look for less damage
to these fruits. Strawberries were in
blossom and considerable damage to
them may result. If they are covered
over with snow and all the snow is allow
ed to melt undercover less damage will
result The price of corn will probably
go up because of the poor conditions and
there being little planted to injure, the
end may not be ao bad after all. I went
out this morning to plant corn but the
conditions were such that I attempted
nothing. Very few farmers have any in
the ground. This is the worst storm so
late in the season that I remember. In

Those who are intending to prepare aa
exhibit for the Winter Corn Show in
January, 1904, and who are not familiar
with the manner in which the corn waa
judged at aha- last exhibit will be inter
ested in knowing upon what basis .the
awards are made. Ten ears of corn con
stitute an exhibit. Any variety ie eligi
ble to entry provided a standard has
been adopted for it by the Corn Improv
ers' Association. Vsrieties for which
standards have already been .adopted
msy be obtained from the secretary.
Anyone wishing to enter a variety not.in
this list may have a atandard set by
sending five typical ears to ths secretary
not later than one week before the
exhibit opens. Each exhibit is judged
ia aeoordanoe with the atandard for .the
variety it represents. Aa exhibitor 'can
enter only one' exhibit of any variety.
He therefore has only one chance at the
premium money for each variety entered.
There is no reason therefore why anyone
having corn capable of scoring over
seventy per cent should not draw some
premium money. Let everyone prepare
to raise the best corn his farm has ever
produced to win premiums at the Ne
braska Corn Show next January and to
represent him and Nebraska at. the St.

Federation, whioh meets in Fremont,
Mrs. Gerrard and Miss Sheldon.
The club tendered a vote of thanks to
Mrs. Gerrard for her efficient work for
the club during the past two years. She
is the first president who has served two
years, and although it has been two of
the most trying in the history of the
club, she leaves the same in excellent
condition. Mrs. Gerrard served refresh
ments after the club work waa concluded.
