If tolal value of .Nebraska's agricultural pro-
Ik ducts Is placed at the gross sum of 9. > i,033,022.
IF These figures form a very Imposing anay ,
but before vvo get through with multlpllca-

cidedly minified. They develop the fact of a
criminal neghct on the jnrt of past legisla
tures which I hope will not DO necessarily
charged to this.
Heloro accepllng the figures of the

been patriotically attended to , but Its
subtraction has been sadly neglected. The

Thu farmer has not had his living fruo out
of this , as some optimists fondly Imagine.
This amount simply represents the actual
cash value of their gross products. Not a
penny for gmb Is found in this calculation.
\VlfI \ any one say that 5200 apiece Is too
much to allow these men lor their labor ? It
is only a dollar per day for liOO working davs.

investment of 84.447. TIM total value ot the
product Is reported at S4'J,387,970. The cost
ot labor and raw material Is given at S.)2,5b9- )
310. Net uroht , after deducting cost of labor
and raw material , 810,708,760.
As the capital Invested is only 812,750,000.
wt ) find that Nebraska manufacturers earned
84 per cent , BS against the farmers' 2.&MOO
of 1 per cent. This is to say that SI Invested
in manufactures shall earn nioro than twen-
tr-nin and a half times as much as SI in
vested In farm property ,
Lotus take ono moro loving squint at the
railroads before tearing ourselves away from
the subject. The amount piid out for labor
on the part ot Nebraska railroads last
year hardly exceeded 84,000,000 , which In
cluded some BVl.OOOper annum for presidents
a fair to medium .sin-Inkling of political at
torneys , at 810,000 with a tan acre Held full
ot lobbyists. At their actual cash value the
railroad system of Nebraska oiuht not to

costof labor , was a trifle over eleven millions.
Hero wo find an average earning of 33 pur
cunt. A dollar Invested in railroads In Ne
braska Is allowed , by combination , and tlio
graclousness of Nebraska legislatures , to have
an Interest drawing capacity ot cloven and
two-thirds times greater than the farmeis'
In 180001 , the farmers earned an annual
gross sum of over 8700 per capita. Today ,
owing to the multiplicity of rings and combi
nations , they are not earning four-tenths of
that amount. And yet , characterless moun
tebanks stand around these lohbvs and stulf
greenhorns with the Idea that the farmers uio

gram to the liisn.1 This town was
thrown Into a fever of excitement yesterday
when a man on horseback came dashing Into
town with information that a deadly light
had been loughtabout four miles from heio.
Four male members of a family named
White were pitted against Colonel John K.
Hosser , his son Willie , aged 15 , and a hired
man named Mulltns , resulting In the killing
of the three Whites and Colonel Hosser and
the wounding of the boy. A few minutes
sufficed to impanel a jury , who , In company
with the ollicers and J ustlco Proctor , left
huriledly for the scone of bloodshed. A ride
of an hour brought the party to the battle
ground. Thu homo ot the Whites con
sisted of one room twenty feet square. The
party enteied and weio struck with horror
at the scene. On the ground In trout of the
entrance was louiid tlio body of ,1. C. White ,
a bullet hole through his breast and one
throueh his side. In the center of the room
in a gieat pool of blood , lav A\ alter White
dead , shot twice through the neck and bieast.
Upon the bed was Law-son White , dead , witli
gun cocked and clutched In his Hand.
A bullet hole through his head told how lie
met his death. In one coiner ot the loom
was found young Hossor , stiot through the
side , with a Winchester at his side. Blood
was ever ) whom and over evcritliiinr. Tlio
weaoons that wrought so much destruction
were scatteied promiscuously about. But
this scone ot death did not end heie. Halt a
mile fHither ou tlm home ot Ho ser was
renohcd. lleie in tlio center of tlio room was
tlio deau body of Kosser , suirounded by his
vvVeninjr family. Ho had received a death
wound at the hands of White , but being a
man of great vitality , mounted his lioise ,
after having , as he supposed , killed all the
Whites , and rode home , djing at his own
The feud had its origin in a law suit.
Whitopuiclused the propeity ho was living
on from Kosser over a jcaraao , hut failed to
pay for it and Kosser brought suit to obtain
possession. Writs were served on Wliito
last week , tiut he retusod to vacate , and yes
terday Kosser took his son and went to the
Whites to eject the family. The rest of the
story as told by young Kotser is this : The
elder White shot him and his father , and he
shot the old man White once and then
tinned Ids rifle upon the White bovs to keep
them from killing his father. About fifteen
shots were fired. Kosser's hired man , Mul
lens lias disappeared. What pait he played
in the awful trairedy is not known. Search
Is being made tor him.

tion were. Commissioner IJIanrhard deliv
ered an address to the committee outlining
what ho thought should bo thu policy of the
association In i aspect to the Inter-state com
merce act Olher addressed followed from
vailotts members , and icsolulions embodying
the sentiment and opinion expressed weio
unanimously adopted. . These resolutions are
In effect that the committee recommends
that the Contrail radio association bo con
tinued , with thu nnilL'istanding that Us
methods , statistical statements , etc. , be re
vised to conform with such railway action
under the Inter-state law as shall bo dually
decided upon ; tlmt the law should bo ac
cepted , Interpreted with a just togard for the
great mtituil railway nnd public Interests In
volved generally , In conformity with the
definitions of the law ns explained bj Sena
tor Culloui In the senate debate thereon , and
the association will co-operate with the com-
mlssloneisunder the Intel-state commerce
law , In securing , as far as josslble ,
the benehts of that bill and In
the faithful observance ot all Its
ptovislons ; that the committee meet
with the trunk line executive committee
on the call of the latter , and that the joint
cxeiu'lve committee so constituted lor that
purpose proceed to such further agreement
and recommendations of detail as may be
required by the Interpretation of Urn act
agreed upon by such executive committee ,
nnd then submit the same to a meeting of the
association for its action.
It will bo noticed that the shape which * ho
association will assume Is not dictated that
it is lett for n future meeting ot the associa
tion to deteimlue.
A renoiter met Commissioner IJIanchard
after the meeting adjourned and inquired
whether , In his opinion , an edieieiit
l/ation could bu maintained In face of the
stncturpsas to poolhu'which the luter-stato
commerce act presented.
"Thi'ie is no doubt of It , " roulipil Hlaneh-
artl. "These Is a very eiroiicous Impression
with a L'reit many people that the object of
the Central Tratlic association is to pool the
business ot Its luembt'is. The leal purpose off
the association is to maintain Kites , anil the
pooling of business Is onlv one of the means
adopted to obtain this , -object. "
"And can rates be maintained without
Borne means of nptvntionlng business ftom
common points among competitive linesV"
"Undoubtedly. Some membeis believe that
under tlio inter-state commerce act means
can bo devised whereby business may bu
appoitinned without violating the clause
piohibiting pooling , but tlio general feeling
Is not to attempt anything of this kind just
now. but to nllovv each line to keep all the
business It gets. "
"Would not that encourage the cutting of
" .No ; for the reason that it must bo done
openly and tor everybody. Cutting of lates
in the past has been most disastrous because
It was done secretly and in favor ol lai o
bhlpnris. A roaa vvoulu make a induction
quietly and scoop all the business. The other
lines would not k low of it until It was too
late , but now they Will know it at once and
can meet it piomptly , So that there will bo no
advantagn to be obtained by a icductlou. "
Not KspcclnUy Active But Prices Well
Nr.vv Yomc , Feb. 8. [ Special Telegram to

Outside of granger stocks , which

the noel support of St. Paul , the market
acted heavy and tlio advlcoghen by conservative

reaction before buying. Coal stocks opened
higher than yiwteiday's closing , but were
unable to make much of an advance. There )
was some talk of a bull y ° < > l in Pacific Mail.
The advance ot nearly 2 per cent In it could
haidly bu explained as due to buying of an
ordinaiy kind. It was thought that a com

LONDON. Feb. 7. [ New Yoik llcr.ild
Cable-Special to the HUE. ] I met Jem
Smith and Charier Mitchell this evening In
the Washington music hall. They had just
leturncd from a provincial boxing tour ,
heretofore rrlcrrcd to In the ilerald dis
patches. Mitchell showed mo as n present to
them last week In Dublin by Irish .sports
men of two pold lockets with Shamrocks on
the outside , the leaves made of emeralds and
the stem of diamonds.
"When do j on go to New Yoik ? "
"In about three weeks , " said Mitchell. " 1
nm seven pounds heavier than when 1 left U.
He ( pointing to Smith who left tlio talking
to Mitchell ) will fight at ItO pounds. " At
this Smith's smllo seemed heavier than that.
"i'os , wo are both thoion'hly healthful and
hope to have a gooiltlmo In America when
wo meet our old friends. Please say to the
American public that Smith don't want any
exhibition with Sullivan In any respect , or
any merely money making trans ictlons. "
At which Smith gave a hearty nod of assent.
"All you want , don't j on , Jem , Is to meet
him in a twenty-four foot ring In the old
style for a substantial stake. " Another nod.
"Ho will not light In any place that Sullivan
chooses to select , but In n fair place , and
wheie Smith will receive American fair play.
When I was In America Sullivan twlco re
fused to light me , nnd paid the forfeit. Sulli
van , 1 see by the Herald you show me , calls
me Cunning Charlie , and is credited with
saying that I want to make money out of
him. 1 want to know how I possibly can
make money out of him ? All that 1 ask Is
that when wo arrive lie shall Tight mo with
Knuckles. Jem and I are willing to light , In
n fortnight after our arrival , anyone
ono In the United States. ling-
lish sportsmen , for the last two months ,
have been willing to make a match for Smith
with Sullivan for 81,000 or S'J.OOO n side and
have olfeicd every inducement to Sullivan to
come over. Ills refusal icsnlts in our deter
mination to go over and light him In Amer
ica. We do notgoovcrfoi the solo purpose
ot meeting him : but are open to meet all
comers up to any price. "
Mitchell , thus far , was the spokesman , and
he looked as unlike a prl/e fighter as Wilson
Barret looks unlike an actor when ho is at
the dinner table. Mitchell wore a dark suit ,
tlio oveicoat being trimmed with military
biaid and the collar and cuffs being of heavy
.sable , also a l.u go diamond lioiso shoe pin ,
and two diamond rings. He spoke in n
soft , low voice. Smith , who was very
reserved , not to say moioso , was dressed in
dark tweed , and woic a heavy oveicoat , the
collar and culls of which were trimmed with
AbUakhan , but no jewels. I then said to
Smith : "What do you think of Sullivan ,
from what you have read and heard of him. "
He replied in a deep , double G bass , speak
ing as if It were out of great good nature :
"Well , lie Is only ono man. He Is not two
men. Ho has never eaten anj body. Ho has
never killed anyone , and I feel confident that
1 can fet tlio better of him. " When ho
paused at this point his determined look
grew pleasant , for Mrs. Smith , a pretty and
tastefully dressed woman , with the bright
e.vesofa lion tamer , was beckoning him to
her side , and ho said : " ( Jood night" It is

LONDON , Feb. 8. | Now York Ilerald
Cable Special to tlio Uni : . ] The evening's
Globe , evidently taking for Its text that in
Lancashire next Tuesday a man will bo exe
cuted for a murder committed one week
after last New Year's day , invites attention
to the laxity In America of carrj ing out sen
tence. The Globe instances the ease of
Maxwell in St. Louis , of Spies in Chicago ,
and of other cases In New Yoik and elsewhere
It ironically si > s , touching tlio delay :
"Alter sentence has been passed in America ,
the law of the republic holds as a first prin
ciple that every possible chance should be
given to a suspect to prove his Innocence.
The law will not take a mean advantage ol a
suspect simply because circumstances nro
cruel towaid him. In a few years the wit
nesses might forget the point of
their evidence , or die , or be
come aldermen , or in some other
way make themselves unworthy of
trust. The prisioner himself , in the inter
val , might succumb to high living or old age ,
but that would bu his own lookout and the
law would only pity his misfortune in his
untimely dropping oil. In no part of the
world has crime n better chance
of escaping with impunity than
In the great republic. It Is
rampant and detmnt. The Knowledge of U Is
no barrier to acceptance in business circles
and a known criminal Is apt to be regauled
ns a little above the rest. The ball system ,
and the theory that a suspected man should
bo given all facilities for proving his possible
or impossible innocence , are at the bottom of
this state ot things. "
After citing other American Instances ,
nnd especially civil injunction a.-aiust the
execution of criminals , as procedures being
curious to English lawyers , the Globe con
cludes : "So the merry farce goes on. Oc-
casionly theio is a noise about It Some
times an exposure of some exceptionally hid
eous travesty calls attention to the hard fact
that justice Is crippled and that all
kinds of deviltry are wandering loose ,
that rascals snap their lingers at the law as
though they owned the city not a far-fetched
supposition and the opinion Is oxpiesscd
that when people understand the situation
they at oncn Institute vigorous remedial meas
ures and show criminals that the laws are
made ot triple steel and law breakers will bo
handled so roughly and justly that the
states will quickly bo rid of them. Never
theless , the pcoplo do not do anything of the
kind. They complacently turn over to the
columns where diabolical outrages and Wall
street reports aio wiitten. "
I have observed similar comments In the
Kngllsh press lately with expressions of
but "tho laws " has
wonderment , delay" loft
