ASIIINOTON , D. C. , Sept. 19. I
In response to n request from Congressman
Lnird , the officials of the department of agri
culture have given him encouragement to
Believe that they will use a portion nt least
the ? IUO,000 appropriated in thu agricul-
ral bill for sorghum experiments In Nc-
oraskii , if the people of the state can show
that they arc in proper condition' for Ihoso
experiments. If so , they will bo set in oper
ation at once ; otherwise nothing will bo
done In the state until next season.
The war department ofllcials have con
cluded to ( tend for the latest maps of Oiminn
and Douglas county , and to appoint a board
of appraisers to look over these maps , lay out
upon them the Ihlrly or forly silos offered
to Iho government for now Fort Omaha , and
to select from the whole number
these not considered available , after
which perhaps six or eight will
bo left. Then General Scholield will
in nil probability , proceed to miiko a per
sonal examination of these remaining and
select from them the one which ho deems
best for the purpose. Senator Mandcrson
will procure the necessary maps.
An attache of the Costa Rican legation said
to-day that Secretary Fairchild had acted
very hastily in forcing section -oOO of the re
vised h tutites in relation lo lliu Imports lo
this country In Costa KIcan vessels Doenuso
of alleged discriminations against the United
States by Iho government of that little re
public. Tlio attache said that the grievance
of the United States was virtually a protest
against the manner which the government of
Costa Rica lias adopted for paying for their
service in carrying its mails and official pas-
Hcngers. Said this genllcman : "AVo have an
arrangement with the steamship lines
referred to , whereby in return for
carrying our mail to European
and United Stales porls , and for
carrying free any official of Hie government
whom it may bo ncccusary to send out of the
country , the owners of these vessels are en-
lilled to 5 per cent of the customs duties col
lected upon llinir cargoes. In other words
wo simply pay a percentage of tlio money
which these vessels bring to us In return for
the services performed. Our government
fuels that It Is hardly fair on the part of the
United States to construe this into a dis
crimination against vessels. However , as
the Increased duty provided for in the sccro-
tary'.s retaliation scheme is only to bo
charged against goods coming in this country
in Cost a Rica vessels , 11 is nol so great a
hardship , ns wo have in Cosla Rica no ves
sels but the small coasters. "
"Yachts , " suggested your correspondent.
"No , wo are poor and own no yachts.
They are simply smacks , " was Iho reply ,
"and lliey are nol engaged In foreign Irado
nt all. "
It is generally believed that the appropria
tion of $ 100,000 made by the sundry civil ap
propriation bill Iho other day for thu irriga
tion of arid lands In the public domain will
lead to very beneficial results. It is acknowl
edged on all hands that' this appropriation
of $100,000 , which is to make preliminary ex
aminations and reports to congress , will , in
all probability , result in the expenditure of
several million dollars for the construction
of reservoirs , canals and ditches for Iho slor-
ing and distribution of waste walcr in the
vicinity of the arid lands , but the results
cannot bo estimated.
At the general land office It Is stated that
there are millions of acres of as rich and
beautiful land us over existed located in sec
tions of Colorado , Nebraska and New Mexico
ice especially , with small tracts in other sec
tions of tlio country which are now barren
deserts on account of there being no way ol
irrigating them. H is proposed lo look into
the feasibility of the reservoir and olhor s.ys-
Icms of Irrigation for the purpose of makinp
these lands productive. A member of Ihe
geographical survey who has lookc'd inlo Ihia
question pretty closely , and who , in nil
probability , will bo prominent in the investi
gation about to bo instituted by the secretary
of the Interior Into the irrigation of arid
lands , said to-day :
"Within ten years I do not expect to sec
the slightest suggestion of what wus once
the great American desert. Neither do I ex
poet to sec any traces of the smaller deserts
which have marked certain portions of the
west and southwest. Probably you do nol
know it , but it is true iiovnrtliclcss , thai
there are sections of Texas as big as a Ne
England stale which are almost worthless al
present. Texas owns her own domain b.y
mason of Iho treaty stipulations which nn
ncxcd the state to this country , and for thai
reason it Is probable that al
of the domain owned by tlu
federal government will have long slnci
been made fertile and Improved before tlu
work of Irrigating the domain in Texas has
fairly begun. The Btato of Texas Is largol ;
in debt , and It Is no wonder Ihat steps havi
not been tnuen to Irrigate her public domain
AVherever the federal government owns arh
lands the Improvements will go forward I
congress gives us the ; money which will bi
desired lo carry out the plans wo propose ti
make. Thuro are iwo classes1 of the publi
domain which embraces nearly all of th
unoeo..pied lands owned by tlio government
They are the arid lands and the hilly lands
neither of which at present can bo utillzci
for any purpose. AVhcn wo have Irrigatoi
the arid hinds the maximum of homosteai
entries can b Immediately taken. Within i
decade I expect to sco all of tha lands nov
owned by the government , which can bo mad
produclivo for ngriculluro , homesleaded
and the best lands which will bo taken undc
the homestead act will bo these arid land
which wo now propose to Irrigate. "
A Californian who does not care muel
which political party wins at the approach
ing election , and who Is hero looking nfto
his agricultural Interests involved in th
preparation of the republican tariff bill li
the senate , says it Is folly for the democrat
to talk about carrying the Piiclfio slope li
November. "Tho Mills tariff bill , " says lit
strikes n deadly blow nt Iho interests o
California and Oregon , while it propose
nothing to really relieve the people there
In no section of the country nro the ugrlcul
tural and manufactured products inon
largely exported , and nowhere do lui
I > ort3 come moro directly In con
filet with homo products than o
the Paclflo slopo. The Mills tariff bill give
no relief lo our farmers , while 11 stubs then
severely by putting nearly all of thei
products on the free list. Cullfornlans woul
like to get cheaper sugnr lor their fruits am
wines , and they would especially like to hav
Iho.tux on alcohol for the arts and mnnufac
turcs abolished , since they use cnorinou
quantities of both in frult-pncking and wim
making. Tlicro is no section of the counlr
where the Mills bill injures moro and helii
less than on the Pacific slopo. Of course , th
success of Cleveland nt the polls in Noven
ber means the success of the Mills tariff bll
for despite the reaubllcan senate n uroaldei
can force the adoption of the incasui
through one branch of congress , which
nearly a tie. "

The union labor party has also placed Its
llcket In I'm ' field , Francis Phillips for the
senate and J. U. Coe for the house. Phillips
Is a prominent farmer living near Kenesaw
and is now chairman of the board of super
visors. Coo is a printer holding down a "sit"
in the Democrat office of this city. It Is gen
erally believed that thrco or four hundred
ballols will bo casl for this Uckel.
The open and avowed candidates for the
republican senatorial nomination are Frank
L ) . Taggart and Leopold Hahn. James D.
Heartwell , the present senator , has
expressed no personal desire to return ,
but many bollevo that ho Is
the strongest and most available man for the
party to place In nomination. Frank D. Tag
gart Is young and ambitious. He has
achieved wonderful silccoss In a business
way. Is a lawyer by profession , a college
graduate , a thorough republican and a tal
ented and llowcry orator who could lake Iho
slump and make a great milling among tlm
old polilical dry bones. Ho has an ardent
following and may now bo considered fairly
in the lead for the nomination. Hoth ho and
Heartwell favor submission. Opposite to
them on this issue is Leopold Hahn , a plain ,
blunt business man of excellent ability , and
the recognized leader of the German element.
His candidacy would bo a challenge to the
prohibition element that would insure a
lively contest.
For nomination to the lower house the as
pirants are II. C. Minnlx. the present mem
ber from this county , F. P. Olmstead and
pissibly H. M. Palmer , of West Ultio town
ship , and H. F. Single , of Kenesaw. Olm
stead served one term in the legislature a
few years ago , and is now making a very
energetic canvass for the same honor again.
Minnlx is regarded as the most popular man ,
and is likely to win.
The democrats are exceedingly quiet
and expect to see the situa
tion take such shape that they
can como in finally with the longest pole
and knock the persimmons. The only names
mentioned in their ranks for legislative hon
ors are K. A , Batty , AV. W. Jones and Ur.
Cooke. The latter does not want it and the
two former are , singularly enough , temper
ance advocates and submissionlsts.
The Germans have formed nn association
to control if possible their entire vote , esti
mated to be nearly ono thousand , against , any
submission candidate. If this is done it is
possible Iho prohibitionists would combine
on a submissinnist. At all events the fight
this fall in Adams county will be an inter
esting one , but , the republicans are strong
and feel confident of winning a complete
victory. _

CHICAGO , Sept 10. The nineteenth annual
reunion of the sociely of the Army of the
Cumberland was opened hero to-day with
about 150 members present. An address of
welcome wan delivered by Major A. F.
Steplicnson of Chieigo. General Uosecrans
was made chairman. Colonel Stone then
submitted the names of members who died
during tlio year , and General Fullcrton
made a motion that a member of the society
from each state bo appointed to consider the
question of erecting an equestrian monument
in Washington In honor of General Sheri
dan. The mutter was laid over. At Central
Music hall this evening General II. A. Alger
of Michigan delivered the following eulogy
on the late General Sheridan :
General Alger began his address with n
brief sketch of General Sheridan's life ,
touching ujion the circumstances of his birth ,
his graduation at West Point , his service as
lieutenant of infantry against tlio Indians in
Oregon and Washington territories , his re
call from the Pacific coast in tlio fall of 1S01
and assignment to duty as chief quartermas
ter at St. Louis , and noted that this great
military genius was not given independent
command till May 2Ti , ISiW , when Governor
Blair , of Michigan , appointed him colonel of
the Second Michigan cavalry. General
Algor continued :
"Ho was a resolute man , and his command
soon learned the fact that unless in camp
two parties were in constant danger the
enemy and themselves. Ho was always
geninl and easily approached except In bat-
tle. when his whole tmturo seemed to change ,
and woo to the man who crossed him while
the fight was on. Speaking of the fact not n
year since , when told that ho was always
ugly in battle , he replied : 'I guess that was
so ; it was the way 1 always felt. ' "
Summing up tlio sketch of Sheridan's
methods in preparation and In b.ittlc , Alger
said : "Such was the combination a knowl
edge of tlio topography of the country ,
the position and strength of enemy ,
quick perception and decision , heavy
and rapid blows which gave him
the success thai crowned him among
the foremost generals of modern his
tory. Sheridan never lost u battle. Ho sel
dom made an attack that was not successful ,
and , lllco a mighty rock standing in the sea.
whoso waves strike it only to be divided and
shattered , so tlio enemy's host was ever
hurled upon his command but to bo broken.
Those who saw a handful of n en defeat ten
times their number at Uoonovlllo ; these who
stood in the cedar brakes at Stone river and
witnessed thu repulse of the proudest army
over sent by the rebels to the west ; these
who were with him in the seven miles of
fire at Mission Hiclgo ; these who were
with him in that hill of fire nt the Wilder
ness , or served under him in the croat
cavalrytlghts of the Yellow Tavern and Tro-
vllllan station ; those who passed with him
through the terrible battle of Winchester ;
those who helped to demolish Early's victori
ous army at Cedar Creole , and those who
followed him at Five Forks , all joined In ac
claim us each victory in turn increased his
bewildering fame , crowning him with the
plaurtlts of Ihe world.
"Ono of Iho slrong characteristics of Gen
eral Sheridan was his intense devotion to the
cause of the north. Soldiering with him
was not a mere occupation to gratify per
sonal ambition , but ho believed Intensely that
the rebellion was n crime , and that it ought
to bo punished. It was this intense cnrnest-
ness that made his success. His appearance
ui > on the field at any time during the battle
always created the wildest enthusiasm. Ho
handled a regiment as though it was an
army , and an army was managed by him as
though it were a regiment. "
Grant's and Sherman's
After quoting opin
ions of Sheridan , the speaker said : "Sheri
dan's part in the \yar was so prominent that
it attracted attention at once , and became a
theme for poets , artists , and historians to
dwell upon. Other men have served their
country well , and died hoping that future
generations would do them Justice. Sheri
dan was happy in living in the glory of his
own fame , and his fondest friends can hope
for no moro than that the future may concur
with his own time in doing him honor. "
The speaker then touched upon the pension
question , and said that there were about
eight hundred thousand veterans ir. the
country who were dying at tlio rate of ten
thousand per year , and added : "Tho com
rades of the gallant Sheridan ought Jo bo the
nation's wards , and not the nation's pau
pers. A grateful country should rise up to
give them their just reward and place them
beyond tlio possibility of suffering during
the few remaining years allotted to them. "
The speaker closed with an eloquent apostro
phe to the dead general.
Among the distinguished gentlemen present
are : General Kosccrans , General James
D. Morgan , Colonel II. Stone , General II. M.
Cist , General Nathan Kimball , General
Parkhurst , General J. H. Doolittlo and Gen
eral J. Warren Keifor.
After the session at Central Music hall a
symposium with tlio Chicago members of Ihe
military order of the Loyal Legion was held
at the Grand Pacific hotel. A banquet will
be held to-morrow night.

that the Wabash Western and Hurllngton
troubles are not at an end. The refusal of

fusal to handle Hurllngton engines I cannot
see how the trouble is to bo averted. "
