why should the common schools be

Twenty acres of Train's Omaha
plantation is advertised to be sold

For the Information of the Citron,

sympathies are aroused by Train's
black-mailing circulars, we will
state tltat the twenty acres were
sliced from, the portion of Train's

and therefore the least valuable.

personal friends for his special ac

Tiiire are eight woolen mills
now -in operation on the Pacific
coast They give permanent em-
'ployment to fifteen hundred opera
tives. The capital invested in each
of these factories varies from $40,000
to $150,000, according to capacity.
Now we see no reason why woolen
mills should not prove just as remu-
Iterative in Nebraska as in Califor
nia or Oregon. There are to-day
c Tiekrly one hundred thousand sheep
grazing in our Valleys.
Instead of exporting the raw pro
duct.to eastern mills; and exchang

yarns, we might just as readily save

Ve desire to call the attention of
Omaha tax-payers to the fact that
the City Council will be in session
as a board of equalization during
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
oftke present week. People who
have any complaints to make about
tber assessments upon their prop
jetty, should avail themselves of
this opportunity to present
their respective claims and grie
vaaees to the only tribunal
legally, authorized to make correc
tieas ea the tax list. Many of our
heaviest tax payers have heretofore
made M a practice to ignore the
boards ef equalization with a- view
of seeuring reductions or remis
sions by lobbying wiUi CouncIImen.
This sharp practice often proves
uajost so the poorer tax payer, and
we hajse will hereafter be done away
with. -No changes should be made
in the tax list after the adjourn
meate the Board of Equalization,
excepting ia caseswhere clerical mis-
takes or omissions occur. If this
regulation was rigidly enforced, the
Council would waste less time upon

duced or remitted, upon all sorts of

The Executive Board of the Re
publican State Central Committee
will meet in this city on Tuesday.
The objects of the meeting have al
ready been stated by the Bee in
Although the action of the execu
tive committee, is at best but pre
liminary, here is one subject
to which we deem it our duty to
il attention. The State Central
Committee, as originally constitu
ted, was composed of one member
from each Senatorial district This
arrangement, like our legislative ap
portionment, may of course be some
what inequitable, but it afforded at
least, a partial opportunity to the
Republicans in the various sections,
to have their representatives in tne
The removal of several members
of the committee from the districts
which had elected them as their
representatives naturally raises the
question whether these members
have not forfeited the right foTmem
berahlp This is always the casein
legislative and representative bodies,
and we should also oonslder it ap
plicable in this Instance.
While we have no objection to
any particular member of the Com
mittee, it seems to us that justice
and equity demand that the people
of each section should be represent
ed by men who reside among them
and have an opportunity to know
their wishes. For instance : No can
did person would coatend that Un
coln,which is entitled tobne member
should be represented by four mem
bers and yet such will be the case
if the committee Is not reconstructed.
For our part we believe such a re
construction is imperatively neces
sary. Wo want to see every section and
every district represented by men
who are bona fide residents there ;
men thoroughly identified with the
wants and interests of their constitu
ences, and we hope to see every
member present, when the new ap
portionment is made, in order that
no section shall have Just reasons

growing weather, and we would be
safe in saying that the whole field
will to-day average two feet tall.
Larger area sown to spring wheat
than last year, probably one-third
more. The crops at this time give
promise of a good yield. Oats
promise well. Very little fall wheat
sown, not enough worth reporting.
Not so large a breadth planted in
corn as in some years past. The
cold, backward spring has .made
com planting unusually late, and it
is yet too early to make any esti
mate of what the crop will be.
Notwithstanding the high price
of seed potatoes, at least the usual
quantum of land has been devoted
to that edible. The late rains are
highly favorable, and unless the
bug, which has already made its
appearance in many fields, proves
very destructive, the early planting
gives promise of an abundant yield.
Small fruit, sucbj as grapes, plums
and gooseberries, promise a good
yield, and every peach tree large

Rain has been the order for the

will be excellent. Old potato grow

their appearance yet, and we notice
that large patcnes are aireauy in

An unusually large amount of corn
has also been planted, which is
everywhere doing finely, and the
most of it ready for the cultivator.
Owing to the scarcity, and conse
quently high price ot potatoes last

have been planted this year, than
