will bo nearly if not quito equal to
that of last , aggregating nearly
830,000,000. Throughout the stnto

roads is assisting greatly in
the further development of the
mining industry. The Denver and

ng an independent outlet to the Pa
cific ocean. Northward , the Denver ,

Immigration is pouring into the

oys. Its vast cattle interests are con
stuntly increasing in value , while nt
no distant day promises to become the

Within the past two yean the atten
tibn of motalurgists has boon strongly
directed to the mineral wealth of
Idaho. The western and northern
part of the territory has long boon
noted for its rich ranches and fine ag
ricultural lands , nnd the country
around Lewiston and bordering on
eastorjit Oregon has for some
time received a good share
of far western immigration.
Interest at present centers in the rich
quartz discoveries in eastern Idaho
and the dovolopmontsalon ; the Sal
mon and Wood rivera , and capital is
rapidly coming to the aid of local
prospectors to assist in the develop
ment of a number of claims which
promise to pay handsomely for work
inc. The extension of the Utah and
Northern railroad through the terri
tory has aided very much in bringing
to notice the resources of the country ,
and the near future is certain to briuj
it into still
greater prominence re

In Washington territory nnd Oregon
gen heavy harvests nnd a largo
amount of railroad building have also
brought prosperous times nnd nt-
traded jconsiderablo immigration.
Both have suffered to aomo extent
the commercial depression which has
affected the entire coast , but this is
gradually wearing away to give place
to n sounder nnd inoro cheerful state
of nffairs. A largo surplus of grain
loft over from last year's harvest is
available for export , nnd low rates of
ocean freight will make the winter's
storage moro profitable than of a
ready sale had boon effected last fall ,
In Wyoming , the losses of a severe
winter have boon made up by the iiir
creased price of cattle , and the ranges
never looked in bettor condition. The
agricultural resources of the northern
part of the territory nro coming into
greater prominence , and a number of
mineral discoveries afford reasonable
grounds for the belief that future bo
nanzas may yet bo uncovered.
In all thin encouraging outlook
Omaha takes a deep interest for her ,
own commercial importance is largely
dependent on thousands of customers
scattered in every atato and territory

ON behalf of the citizens of Omaha
Tin : BEK tenders a hearty welcome o
the thousands of visitors who nro
in attendance nt the state fair. Omi-
ha may not nppear to advantage just
now with great piles of building ma
tcrial blocking her principal thorough
fares , but she points with honestprido
to the very substantial improvement
which she nmdo on every street since
last fall and to a hundred now enter
prises now under way. Her great
oporn house is unfortunately not com
plated but it is far enough advanced
to afford n good idea ot what it
will bo when the masons , carpenters
nnd upholsterers have loft it. Two
largo elegant hotels are rising rapid
ly in the heart of the city and ground
lias been purchased far n third which
is to equal if not to surpass cither ol
of UICBO now buildings. In the bus
iness section of our city A score ol
liandsomo brick and atotio fronts at
test the growing importance of our
commercial interests , while every
street in the residence part of the city
evidences our rapidly increasing pop
Such a steady advance indicates the
growth of the state , for which Omaha
s the commercial center , and on this
account every citizen of Nebraska has
a personal interest in the matter.
Tin : demand of tha railroads for
congressional regulation by which
, heir contracts with ono another can
30 enforced is likely to bo loud and
ircssing if ( ho present war ? of rates
continues to prevail much longer.
Since early summer the west bound
passenger traffic has been out tb
igurcs which scarcely pay the actual
expenses of running trains. The last
move is , a cut into cast bound rates
by which passengers ore carried from
Chicago to Boston , via Now York , for
SO. Under this cut the Pennsylva
nia road , which pays $5.75 for send
ing its passengers to Boston from
Now York , gets only twenty-five cents
for carrying n passenger from Chicago
cage to Now York. The entire quar
rel is nn expensive ono to the roads
for which the public must pay dearly
in the end by an equally arbitrary
raising of the tariff. It looks very
much as if congress will be called up
on in the interest of both the rail
roads and the people to put n stop to
such cutthroat warofnro.
ACCORDING to the Lincoln
Mr. Qaloy stated boldly , without fear
"of successful contradiction , that there
was moro interest taken in Omaha to
defeat the building of the Fremont &
Lincoln road than there was In Lin
coin to secure its construction. " Mr.
Galey otatcd boldly what ho wol
knpvr to ibo a downright falsehood.
Ho has simply taken advantage of the
known fears and jealousy of the people
ple of Lincoln toward. . Omaha ant
hopes by such imposition to frighten
them into voting § 50,000 in bonds
into the pockets of the syndicate ,
for which ho was tho'spokesman. .
The people of Omaha have not
manifested the least concern aboui
this Fremont & Lincoln railway pro
ject. Not a single businessman o
Omaha has over directly or indirectly
sought to lay a straw , in their way ,
noif has the Omaha press made a concerted
cortod onslaught on thia job.
For years thia paper has opposot
the subsidizing of railroads by bone
donations and in this instance withoui
suggestions or pressure from any quar
ter wo have expressed the opinion
that the pcoplo of Lancaster , Saunders
dors and Dodge counties would bo
yory foolish in voting mortgages upon
their homos for the benefit of a railway -
way that was bpund to be built wheth
er they voted n dollar to it or not , In
opposing Mr. G'aloy'a aoliomo THE
BEE haa noted puioly on its own im
pulse , without the remotest reference
to the business rivalry of Lincoln ant
Omaha. But wo presume Mr. Galoy
nnd the bulldozers of the proposci
Fremont & Lincoln branch will con
tinue to wave the rod rag of Omaha
in the fnco of the Lincoln bull , and
wo take it that they expect this is the
only method by which the .taxpayers
of the capital city can bo scared into
voting another $50,000 mortgage on
themselves. \
ONI : of the most graceful acttn of

vnnco emphatically refused consider
any proposition looking towards repayment
payment for his courtesy , und when
informed that several changes must no
made in the interior , replied that the
cottage and all its contents were Pros * (
Idont Garfiold'a for as long n time as
ho might require. The Springfield
Ittpubliean in commenting upon iha
subject says ; Congress , when it comes .
o deal with the many subjects for
legislation and appropriation which
the presidents illness haa placed on its \ \
calendar , should And aomo way of ox-
iressing the national appreciation of
ilr. Francklyn'a offer. A service of
silver was given by the United States
Staomplli , the Swiss representative

declined any money payment , The
precedent is worth following again ,
and neither skill nor treasure should
be spared in making fit national ac
knowledgement to Mr. Frnncklyn.

LINCOLN , September 10. For si
days and nights your correspondent
has shared all the harddships
nnd .ill of the glories of Camp Abe
Lincoln. Ho fought the winds to
keep them from blowing his tent
across Salt Creek , faced the blizzards
of ice water fresh from Her Majesty's
dominions in Manitoba , marched to
the front with the seven hundred and
fifty scarred veterans from Illinois ,
nnaworcd to the call for the Eleventh
Cavalry , shook hands with eight com
rades , not ono of whom ho had scon
since the year 1804 ; hung out the
banner of the seven pointed stars , met
beneath itsjrays eight of Hancock's
veteran corps , two of them brother
corporals in his own company , shook
hands' with nnd hugged grizzled old
chaps , who were not quite as lovely as
girls of sweet sixteen , but ho loved
them fully as well , shouted the old
army yell , to invited galloping horse
men to "jump oft and grab a root/ '
ordered the drivers of braying
mules to "apiko that battery , "
with arrosnround necks , ho sang , "In
186i , " "Marching Through Georgia , "
"John Brown"and "Tho UnionFor-
over , " looked at every ribband on
every hat , for these told the regi
ment or regiments with which the
wearer served , found thoae who had
climbed the same hills on the same
charges , camped on the same camp
grounds , followed the lead of the
same generals , comrades of the same
brigade by scores. Of the same division
or of the same army corps ho found
too many to talk with in ono short
week. Your correspondent listened
to ns much martial music ns ho heard
in any six months of nctual service ;
listened to morj speaking , or to use
soldiers' slang , "had heavier ra
tions of wind pudding" thau
during all the three years , four
months and seven days tlmt ho were
the army blue ; met more generals ,
colonels , majors nnd captains than ho
didat the grand review at Washington
after the war was over ; saw tor the
first time men with starred , eagled or
barred ahoulders meeting privates
with perfect familiarity ; saw frater
nity , equality and loyalty aa univer
sally exhibited as any man could wish
for ; witnessed a regiment of militia
and a battery of artillery conduct a
sham battle with all the pomp and
glory of nctual warfare ; saw the camp
life of armed soldiery almost the exact
counterpart of the old time scones ;
heard every military cell from reveille
to taps , from sick ball to the long roll ;
hoard the drummer boy of Shiloh
play the tune that thrilled us nineteen
years ago when "Crazy Sherman"
led the long line across the tobacco
field to the loft of Shiloh church. The
"close-up ! close up ! " which the offi
cers shouted when shells or bullets
gapped the line 'was ' not' heard , but
every face looked as serious na if the
order , "Column forward , charge bay
onets , double-quick , march ! " was ex
pected before the time waa onded.
Ho heard old veterans toll how the
ranks of bravo boya molted away , how
they died sending loving messages to
dear ones at homo , or shouting some
war cry that condensed into ono sentence -
tonco all the patriotism that
loads men to give up life
as if it Were an idle toy.
WomMi aobbcd aloud , tears ran down
the cheeks of gray veterans and no
dry eyes could bo found. Your cor
respondent saw the survivors of the
rebel prison pen , saw the corn cob nnd
nil which wns their only food , and
hoard tales of suffering that would
chill the heart of Jeff Davis himself ,
if Dr. Miller's statesman had n heart.
When morning came it was ushered
in by the roar of cannon and the roll
of drums. Brass buttons and mili
tary emblems were on the clothes of
nearly all the men , the bugle call
summoned to pork nnd beans , antlers
were busy nnd darkoya earning nickels
by patting juba and singing. "Wo
atnid five days in Georgia , nha , aha ,
wo atnid five days in Georgm , nil jino
the union , nhn , aha , fight for Uncle ,
Sam. Then harness up yor mules ( bo
careful how you drive 'em. "
When the boom , boom of the can
non announced the opening of tha
sham battle your correspondent felt ,
in the language of his colonel , "Bob"
Ingersoll , "Every mun of the
Eleventh ia mounted to-day , " and it
was hard to stnnd back and see others
do the loading nnd firing , but the old
lag wns berne bravely forward , the
enemy was outflanked , their lott driv-
m in , ft column waa alowly ntealing
Ihrough the cornfield unseen , with at.
lie evident design of turning their
ight and when , with ono grand
charge , the battery woa taken , it
\\oa all a reality.
I A. Million , editor of the of
ficial daily "The Reveille , " is a man

Ho is n genius , us a philosopher
and a poet , may ho yet find the pea-
plo who have sense enough to appreciate
ciato him.
General Chas. F , Mnndcrson hns
demonstrated to the people of Nebraska -
braska on many previous occasions
that ho is one of the low attempts of
nature at producing the perfect man
and it is conceded by every ono of the
5,000 veternns camped under his
command that his management \\ns
nbovo criticism. The errors committed
were beyond the power of any com
mnnder to remedy.
Paul Vandorvnort worked unceas
ingly for the success of the reunion
nnd that it , was n grand success no ono
pretends to deny.
Captain Wood nnd Commander
Fitch , of Omnhn , were conspicuous
for their laudable efforts.
Col , Sessions , of Lincoln , was the
moat enthusiastic man in the camp.
Col. Crnbb , the commander of Iowa's
veterans , was the happiest man. Gen.
Dillworlh right nobly led the host
from Illinois. Capt. Miles Warren
came from Lcadvillo to nttond the ro-
union. Brig. Gen. Ekin , A. 0. , U.
S. A , , is a fine specimen of the old-
time officer. Bob McCook , post No.
21 , G. A. . , of Ashland , Nob. ,
proved that they were the best drilled
nnd they won the § 50 prize. J. Clark
is the post commander.
Company A. of York , Capt. Scott
commanding , holds the post of honor ,
nnd the boya have earned it. They
drill like veterans , and their flank
movement at the sham battle was
magnificently executed. They had
forty-six men on duty.
Capt. W. D. Young , a man who
knows the duties of an officer , nnd n
gentleman as if ho were nn old
veteran , is the commander of compa
ny B , of Sutton. This company also
musters fortj'-six men. Col. Colby ,
the commandant , bore his honors
well. Liout. Col. Keller is nn able
assistant and nlso n veteran. Most of
the the other ofiicors and the privates
nro inexperienced and yet they are
fair soldiers although n tritlo green
with a crcat deal to learn. ,
Speaking of Nebraska's militia
brings up the Nebraska veterans of
the war. General Thaycr , every inch
a soldier , made n grand speech in
their behalf , and the ilugs these bravo
boys carried to victory was accorded a
reception that showed the honor in
which they arc held. Perhaps some
day our militia may have the Oppor
tunity for winning as bright laurels as
their predecessors under Gen. Thayer ,
but lot us hope not. The greatest
wonder is the sobriety of the veterans.
Let a convention of loading men
bo hold and n largo percentage
got intoxicated before going to bed ,
but hero were 6000 veterans and
about ten thousand of their friends ,
and during six days stay in Camp Abe
Lincoln , n. drunken man was not seen.
A few militia men in the adjoining
camp got full and n few veterans up
town , but in Camp Abe Lincoln there
was no drunkenness , no fighting , no
stealing , no vulgarity , nothing but
healthy enjoyment.
About § 1500 were taken by the B.
& M. for trip tickets between Lincoln
find the camp.
The 1st army corps , Hancock's
veterans , formed an organization by
electing J. M. Taylor , of Nebraska
City , president , and yours truly , sec
retary. C. H. Frederick , nn efficient
staff-officer , n , perfect gentleman and
well everybody knows General Fred-
crick , of Omaha ; ho is first on the
list ; then comes J. H. Bowkor , of
York ; R. L. Roberts , of Ithaca , nnd
J. B. Brooks , of York. A corps ban
ner was decided upon and when
the next reunion meets the veterans
of the 1st A. 0. will once again
follow the star with seven points.
This corps is worthy of more than a
passing notico. It was organized
under n special act of congress , giving
$300 extra bounty for veterans who
had served two years , and recruiting
officers were notified to enlist none
but those who could obtain certifi
cates of soldierly conduct from their
captains. It was the seventh call for
troops and this is the signification of
the seven points of the star. It was
the only considerable body of war
veterans unmixed with raw lovics that
over was organized in this country.
The arms , uniforms and/ equipments
were different from and bettor than
any others in the service , and distin
guished foreigners who saw the corps
at Washington said it was the finest
and most intelligent looking body of
tropps in the world and all first A. 0 ,
men were unanimous in the belief
the d. f. s. wore very right.
Hundreds of men who had previously
served as officers were in Hancock's
corps as privates. Officers got no
bounties , hence in a crack corps , with
bis ; bounty and a chance for promo
tion , they wore willing to commence
again as privates.
