The State Capital
Matters of General Interest
Nebraska's Seat i Gov.
The 19,500 appropriated by the late
legislature for building a brick addi
tion to the hospital at the Soldiers'
home at Grand Island is liable to lapse
back Into the state treasury. The
State Board of Public Lands and
Buildings is not going to make any
more improvements at the home until
the title to the property is quieted in
the state. The bil provides that this
appropriation shnl become Available
only after the title is vested in the
state. When the board made an effort
to get the tangle straightened out
some of the original signers refused
to sign the deed until they had been
paid $2,000. This the board had no
authority to pay. Attorney General
Thompson then brought suit to quiet
title In the state. Should the state
lose the suit then the board will not
inake any more permanent improve
ments. Should the state win the suit,
there will be nothing to prevent the
legislature from removing the home
to Milford should it desire.
Heretofore it has been the custom
for the adherents of Grand Island to
urge that it was provided in the deed
.that the home should not be removed
from the Hall county town. Inasmuch
as the orders of the board have been
disobeyed at Grand Island and the
board has had considerable trouble
managing the home, there is a dis
position on the part of the individual
members to assist in any movement
lending to move the home to Milford.
Clarke to Have a Hearing.
Han-iron Clarke will have a hearing
before Governor Sheldon December 9,
at which time the chief executive will
decide whether he is entitled to a
.commutation of sentence. He renews
4he charge made after his trial in
Omaha that his lawyers were selected
for him by Judge Sutton of Douglas
county in the face of a request tc re
tain his own counsel and that the at
torneys consulted him but once pre
vious to trial and that in effect his
,case was "railroaded" through the
atrial court. He asks the governor to
commute his death sentence to one
for life, or if on reading the record,
the governor shall conclude that he
is no more guilty than Cathright. al
ready sentenced to fifteen year., to
make the term of the same length.
A letter containing his request was
received by Governor sheldon, who,
on reading iL, fixed December 9 as
the time for a hearing. The date cf
execution has already been fixed by
the supreme court at December IS.
Law Reaches Farmers Too.
A citizen of llrainard complains
that he bought two dozen eggs from
a farmer for which he paid the high
est market price for fresh eggs and
that out of the two dozen only seven
were fit for use. The theory ad
vanced is that the farmers pack their
eggs earlier in tho season, holding
them for the higher price, and then
market them at the highest prjee
without reference to their condition.
"When evidence can be obtained by
the food commissioner that is definite
and certain as to this bad egg cheat
prosecution will be instituted against
farmers as well as grocerymen and
others who sell bad eggs. The com
missioner holds that the farmers who
persistently sell bad eggs, bad cream
and low grade milk to the townspeo
ple are deserving the penalties pro
vided in the pure food law and there
will be no leniency shown to the sel
ler because he is a farmer.
Governor Endorses President's Ideas.
"President Roosevelt is intensely in
terested in saving tae natural re
sources of the country," said Gover
nor Sheldon, in discussing his invita
tion to meet the president and other
governors in Washington next Sray
to discuss the question of the salva
tion of the countrj-'s resources. "He
is going to do all he can to get the
most good out of the rivers and at
the same time protect the forests, I
may be able to attend the meeting,
hough I believe the congressmen Kioy
the wishes of the people about as well
as the governors and could set along
very well without suggestions from the
Packers and the Food Law.
Tho case aqainst Armour & Co. for
not branding their meat packages has
been continued by County Attorney
Tyrrell to December 10. In connec
tion with this case L. W. McCandless
of Chicago, attorney for Armour &
Co., writes the food commissioner
that he is endeavoring to have the
packers come to an agreement where
by they will comply with the law in
. which case the pending suits will
ptobably be dismissed.

Commissioner Ryder. "The figures on
the state production of alfalfa have
just been completed, and give a total
production of 1.450,759 tons. Figured
at a very conservative valuation, this
is worth $11,606,072.

Trust Must Obey Law.
The alleged cracker trust found an
eloquent 'advocate in the person of
United States Senator A. J. Hopkins
of Illinois. In company with At
torney L. Babst of New York he
called on Governor Sheldon hnd
asked that the National Biscuit com
pany be relieved from the burden of
placing net weight bands on pack
ages. Babst is the New York at
torney who cordially invited Food
Commissioner Johnson to come to
Chicago to talk matters over, .the
cracker concern to pay .all expenses.
Johnson refused and gave Babst's let
ter to the newspapers. Babst, rein
forced by Senator Hopkins, pleaded
with Sheldon to set aside the pro
visions of the mire food law. Sheldon
declared that he must enforce the
statutes and the cracker concern must

quences. Roads Report on Traffic

"Seeing an account of Grape-Nuts

THE CROP OF 07 I AN EXCEL-

will be about 80.000,000 bushels and
the price the farmers will realize for
it will be upwards of seventy million
dollars. The oat crop was good in
most -places, and the crop' 'of barley
will be very remunerative. '.Those who
know of' the generally unsatisfactory
conditipns during the seeding, grow
ing and ripening period in f the United
States during tho past season, will
look with righteous distrust on any
statement intended forgive the impres
sion that Western Canada conditions
were 'so much different. Generally,
they were not,-' 'Jut the conditions of
a highly recuperative soil, long and
continuous 'sunshine, are conditions
possessed by Western Canada and not
possessed by anyofher country on the
Continent This is why it Is possible
to record today a fairly successful
crop, when in most other places the
opposite is the case. Tho yield in all
grains is less than last year, but the
higher prices obtained more than off
set any falling off in the yield. Take
for instance tho Province of Sas
katchewan the wheat crop will be
worth $21,135,000. Last year the
'same crop was 35 per cent, larger and
the quality better. The- yield was
worth $24,000,000. Oats and barley are
.very important .factors in all' three
central Provinces. At Gladstone, Man
itoba, returns from one farm were $27
per acre from the wheat laud, $35 per
acre from oats, and $30 per acre from
barley. The yield of wheat at Dauphin, '
Manitoba, was 20 to 24 bushels to the
acre but not of a very good grade,
but the yield of barley in that section
was good and so was the quality and
price. At Meadow Lea, Manitoba, 15
to 20 bushels to the acre were
thrashed, bringing a round dollar on
the market. At Oak Lake. Manitoba,
on" some fields where 21 bushels were
expected, twelve and fifteen was the
result; others again where twenty was .
looked tor gave iwemy-iwo 10 iwemj
five. One special patch south of town
on J. M. McFarlane's farm went as
high as thirty bushels to the acre. At
Sheho, Saskatchewan, oats yielded
from 60 to 65 bushels to the acre. Sam
Wunder threshed 2,500 bushels from
forty acres. The sample is good and
weighs well. At Lloydmlnster, Sas
katchewan, W. BIbby threshed 97
bushels of oats to the acre, and two
others were but little behind. Wheat
here reached 35 bushels. At Portage
la Prairie, Manitoba, from a quarter
section all in crop. Alex. McKinnon of
Ingle-side threshed an average of 33
bushels Xo. 1 Northern. I. J. Grant
had 190 acres, yielding C.000 bushels
of the same grade. These illustrations
taken from widely distant districts
(and thousands of others could be
produced) show that the year 1907 has
not felt the serious effects from severe
winter, late spring, or unfavorable
conditions during the growing season
that might have been antitcpated. In
