interesting document for Nehrasknnt an <
onq which will do credit to tlio state abroad
The report trcata principally of the teni

the whole report is of a nature to commnn
great attention. Of the general character i
the cliiimto of the state Qcnerul | 0rco
With the geographical center of the Unite
States proper near Its limits , which moan
tjmt It Is nearly ono thousnnd six humlrc
miles from either of the Rreat oceans.reinovc
from the direct climatic influences of the gu
of Mexico , 800 miles to tlio south , and situate
BOO inllns to the windward of the great Amor
can lakes , It Is needless to say that the climal
of Nebraska Is thoroiiRhly contlnontal , ]
contradistinction to marino cllmnto this tcr
implies for Nebraska winters of consldernh
severity , summers of unusual warmth , rail
fall in limited quantities , marked and suddc
changes' of tcrpernturc , largo seasonal or
dolly tcmporoturo ranpcs , dry , snlubriot
atmosphere , with small percentage of cloud
ness and largo percentage of sunshine.
Fortunately the general configuration i
the state is such that despite the sinn
amount of aqueous vapor In the air , whlc
condition facilitates rapid radiation in wlnti
and a high dogrco of initiation in sumtrfc
yet Nebraska finds itself favored with c !
matlc characteristics remarkably constai
considering its remoteness from the ocean.
The rainfall is what may ho called acoldei
tal , rather than periodical , that U , it nrlsi
almost entirely from abnormal atmosphcr
movements In connection , with the passage i
low area storms across or near the state , t
gethcr with the alternating anti-cyclone
which , flowing In , as cold air from the Sacl
ctchownn and Manitoba-country , bring tiboi
sudden changes of tompcraturo fuvorablo i
rainfall. The molstura precipitated ovi
Nebraska comes almost entirely , clthc
dlrcctlv. or Indirectly , from the Gu
of Mexico. The warm souther
winds , which prevail In conncctlc
with the advancing low area storms , belt
drawn northward laden with aqueous vupo
deposit their vapor with more or loss fr
qucncy in advance of storm centers as th <
move toward the Atlantic. Following in tl
rear of these depressions , the cold , dry n
from the northward tends to precipitate sue
moisture as is left in the rear quadrants i
departing storms.
Considering its Inland situation , far fro
the Gulf of Mexico , the original source i
rainfall of that section of the country , y
Nebraska Is much more favored In this r
spcct than is usually surmised. The annui
rainfall of the stuto may bo placed :
about twenty-four inches. The avorni
annual amount for any entire stnto Is alwn ;
misleading Information , and. in exception
cases , the amounts which full over Clifford
parts of the estate may vary enormously , a :
for instance , in California from two Inches :
the Colorado valley to eighty inches on th
northwestern coast , and In the state of Wasl
ington from seven inches in tho. interior
ninety-four inches nt Neah boy.
The figures show rain-falls in the caste
states ranging from DO to 100 per cent aba
those for the points indicated for Nobrasli
but it would bo an error to surmlso that tl
disadvantages against Nebraska are as o
tonslvo and material as would seam cvidci
from a cursory consideration of these fact
Tlio great advantage which Nebraska ho
in the distribution of rain-full throne
out the year , particularly with row
enoj to the months of April , Ma
Juno and July , which may be called the cri !
wsl months , from the agricultural stand pot
of staple crops grown In Nebraska. Tal
the state as a whole , tbo percentage of nil
fall In each of these four months close
agrees , that for April Is about U per cent
the en tire annual ram-fall ; f or May. 17 p
cent : for Juno , 10 per cent , and for July ,
per cent ; or over DO per coat for the fo' '
months. In other words , threo-flfths of tl
rain-full of the year occurs most opportune
during the period when it is most beadle I
to the growing crops.
It appears that the average amount of ral
full during the months of April to July , incl
slvo , at Omaha amounts to 18.41 mchc
Yanltton , 15.58 Inchon ; Valentino , 12 ,
inches ; North Platte , 11.40 Inches. Itisi
tc.restlng to compare the rainfall during the
four months with that which occurs ov
what ore known as the eastern states. Sue
comparisons show that the eastern part
Nebraska has during these four months
larger amount of ralnfull than the oastci
states from Maine to Virginia , except pos :
bly along the immediate coast , and thnttl
western part of the state of Nebraska
favored with an amount of ralnfi
but slightly below the amounts record' '
In the eastern states. Taking Now York , t
instance , the rain-fall at Albany from Ap :
to July , Inclusive , amounts to 18.51 inche
at Rochester. 11.81 inches , a comparison I
vornblo to Nebraska. Jn like manner tl
records show that the i-aln-fall in Peiins ;
vanlu averages nt Plttsburg 14.2 inches ai
nt Philadelphia 13.03 inches for the mont
named. Those llpures show that the avera
amounts for Pennsylvania arc less than the
which obtain over the eastern half of N
braska , and but slightly greater than the
of the western half.
The state , however , is more favored in tli
rcsj > cct than some of these to the westwa
and southwcstwiird. While this doviatl
exhibits a liability to drought , yet , on tether
other hand , it shows a constancy of rain cc
illtions which is not usually credited to IS
It is still a mooted question as to whether
or not the rainfall of Nebraska Is Increash
From the amount and character of do
at hand It can bo said tin
contrary to nn Impression BOincwli
prevalent , there is no increase In amount
precipitation shown. Kccont Invcstlgntloi
have brought out nn Important feature , vli
that the rainfall has been better dlstrlbut
throughout the year , ns shown by anincrcii
f the number of r.ilny days , and that t
breaking up of the hard 'pralrlo land h
checked evaporation and enabled the rulufi
to penetrate tno earth and thus increase :
vuluo to grdwing crops.
If this characteristic brought out fn
later records is to DO accented as a fact , su
increase may bo accounted for as resultl
from Increased cultivation , breaking up
the soil , and , not the least , perhaps , from t
fact that the planting of trees hu * been
greatly stimulated by the observance of J
bor day , which the people of Nebraska iuai
united and have been most faithful In tna
talnlng. It is noteworthy that the increo
in frequency of rainy days has been i
served in these portions of the state whi
tbo surfuco of the country bos undergone 1
greatest transformation through the labors

An important element in climate o
weather , in relation to health or ngrlcultu
interests , is the relative amount of sunllg
The observations of the signal service g

As far as Nebraska Is concerned they may b

I'ho researches nnd compilations of Lieutcr

iavo clearly shown that tornadoes do no
occur in the immediate vicinity of the ccntc
of oyclonlu storms. They bear , however ,
definite and tolerably llxcd relation to tli
storm center , but ttioy occur at a distance c
several hundred miles to the southeast c

Ono very Important point in the report 1
.ho distinction it draws between tbo rcllabl

ICountza memorial church , at Sixteenth
and Harney streets , WIM well filled yesterday
morning , the occasion being the Installation
of Hev. A. J. Turkic , the now pastor of this
Hev. II.V. \ . Kuhus presided , nnd lluv. J.
C. Jncoby , president of the NcbraiUft Synod ,
and Hev. J. A. Clu tz , D. 1) . , president of
Midland college , Atclilson , Kan. , assisted.
After the usual opening services Hov.
Jncoby addressed the pastor of the church ,
clioollng as Ills text II , Timothy , lv. , 1-5 ,
Paul's chnrgo to Timothy , the first bishop of
the church of Pphcsus.
The speaker said the text gave a clear Idea
of Paul's conception of the importance of the
church work. The ministerial office , 'ho snld ,
towers above all others ns do divine things
nbovo things temporal. It was the purpose
of the ofllco to point out the dlvlno way nnd
lead the people along It. With this high ideal
Paul had delivered his charges to Timothy.
The attention of the now pastor was called to
this charge and ho was ndviscd to study It
veil nnd follow Its teachings.
A prominent feature of this charge , the
peakcr snld , was the direction to preach the
ford , preach it to nil moti nt nil times. Oed
ad given the ministerial ofllco special proml *
cncc and also the Injunction to preach the
vord , therefore , the thing of greatest im-
Kmanee was to spread tliu gospel. To preach
ncant also to tench , therefore the duty of the
mstpr was to teach the word.
The speaker drew many examples from the
crlpturcs of ttio preachers of old us showing
ho proper course to be pursued in carrying
out the duties of the ofllco.
Ho then wanted his brother of the many
ifllcultlos to bo encountered. Human na-
uro had not changed slnco Paul warned
Timothy that the people woula 'grow tired of
religion , hcn'eo tno necessity of 'continued
The minister of God had the physical ns
.veil as the spiritual we f uro of the people in
ais charge and they heeded his prayers to
sustain them. The pastor wua reminded thit
God had set apart ouo day for the preaching
of the gospel , out ho had also set apart six
days for visiting the stole and destitute.
The speaker then dwelt brietly oh' the re-
ponslblllty of the pastor. His temporal re-
ponslblllty was great , but his responsibility
'or the souls of the people under his charge
ivas far greater. Ho would probably ilnd
many members of Ul.i congregation who
would need spiritual consolation and ho was
directed to afford them all the assistance they
required , with the certainty that God would
ecelvo him ns a faithful steward.
Kev. J. A. Clutz then addressed the coiv
grciration ou their duties toward the pastor ,
'nking ns his text , Nchomlah iv , 0.
The text related the building of the wall
.bout Jerusalem by a man called ef God ,
Tlio pastor of the church was
also called of Oed , und the
speaker said that ns the builder would bnv <
been helpless without the assistance of the
people , so would the pastor bo helpless with
out thu co-operation of the congregation.
He referred briefly to what was meant bj
, uccoss in church work. It was usually un
derstood to mean ability to draw a crowd , bin
this was a false Idea. Again it was taken t <
mean that the churcn had plenty of money 11
the treasury to pay all expenses. This wn ;
also a wrong Idea. Success , ho said , was tht
accomplishment of the end of ouu's being
and a church Is only successful as it nccom
pllshes the end of its being the salvation o :
Tbo congregation was reminded that I
must not leave everything to the pastor
Each member of the church was responsibly
for some work according to his ability , ani
would have to answer accordingly.
The speaker advised that all organization :
and societies In the church ba un dor the dl
rection of the pastor , in order to avoid con
fusion and the Interference of ono with thi
other. In order to bo successful all mus1
work together nnd under the direction of on <
guiding hand.
The congregation was enjoined to keep uj
n hopeful spirit nnd speak encouragingly o
the church and its work and show a.hopcfu
spirit which would Induce others to bcconn

WASHINGTON , Nov. , U3. [ Special to Tn

Fiftysocond congress nro apprehensive o
much trouble growing out of the cnormou
majority they will have in that body aud wl
take all of thu precautions possible to put tb
management of affairs into the hands o
skilled men.
The great trouble will come In thoselectlo
of speaker. Un fortunately most of the Icai
ors on the democratic Ride are hot headci
This is the weakness ofboth , Mills of Text
and Springer of Illinois. Especially the Uv
ler is flighty , ' and so full of projudic
that ho would bo "continually getting b1
party Into deep water. A conference :
talked of for an early period during the con
ing session , with a view to agreeing as far a
possible upon tin selection of a levcl-bcadc
democrat for the sixialccrshlp , with a view t
cutting off the various campaigns for tli ;
position , nnd therefore preventing the strli
which may result in a split In the party. Th
course of the democrats In the nouso he
always been , oven when they nro in a ininoi
ity , that they cannot stand together. It i
feared that if prolonged campaigns for th
speakorship : should bo permitted thcro woul
bo 111 feeling engendered , nnd not only a spl
in the party , but , the election of an Incupabl
man result.
After the democrats have selected thel
speaker , mid bo ho over so wise , the greatcs
dinlculty will ensue in keeping down plans
bio measures which should not bo thru :
upon the majority. Every man who is nc
known ns a straight republican , will , c
course , try to co-oporuto with the majority
und every sort of wildcat proposition will u
thrown upon the democraticorganization. . 1
will bo interesting to watch the movement
of the prohibition members \vbo will hav
seats in the Fifty-second congress. As i
well known the prohibition party is backe
by.democrutio managcra , and whenever ' it I
in the ticld in ainixed race , ilciuocrutio'inone
and democratic brains guido it , notwitl
standing the fact that republican votes givi
it positive encouragement.
No ouo fears the work which may be don
in the next house of representatives by tb
fanners' alliance members. In point of fat
they will bo given the greatest leeway , un
their suggestions will bo welcomed by over
ouo. It has been puay for mcu out of con
press to rriticlso these who are in it for IK
taking some stcijs to relieve the dcpresso

A fair slr.od nudlcncovns at the Boyd yes
tcrdny afternoon to hear the story of the con
dition of the unfortunnto farmers in the west
ern part of the state.
Mayor dishing presided , and , nftcr calling
the meeting to order , said : "It U painful to
think that relief meetings must ba held , but
they must , nnd there must bo something
more thim simply meetings. Wo know that
la our own atuto there nro many persons
who nro In need of fuel , provisions nnd cloth
ing. Omahn has always had the reputation
of being ono of the most charitable of cities ,
unrt there Is no reason whv slio should not nt
this time eoino nobly to the front and help
sustain the tmfortunnto cltlions of the stato. "
Governor Tlinyer said !
"I regret nuiru than you ran Imnglno that I
am called upon to appear before you nnd ask
nld for twelve or ilftcen of the counties in
the western part of the stato. In many of
the counties the psoplo have nothing ou
which to subsist. It.was my duty to take
bold of tlio mutter because , as governor of
the stuto of Nebraska , appeals anne to mo
from the peonlo of the counties where crops
failed ou account of the lack of rain and
the visitations of the hot winds. During the
post three wccljs these appeals have beconio
more numerous , nil telling the sumo tiilo , and
lean hardly trust myself to speak upon this
subject. They wrlto to uio saying , 'Can you
help us I1
"In order to ascertain the amount of help
required , I selected Dr. Martin and Mr. J. if.
Hartley of Lincoln to visit these counties.
The gentlemen went and found that what Is
written Is truo. These farmers who are so
nflllctcd nro honest , Industrious People , but
they cannot help themselves. Tlio question
now Is , will yo'u help ttioni , or will you let
them dlo of hunger and cold I
"Slnco I was In Omaha last Thursday night
I have received many lcttcrsshowlngn worse
state of nffulrs than I sui > | > osed could exist.
I Know Ui at thcro are thousands of people in
the western part ot tlio state who uro suffer
ing today for food , fuel and clothing. "
The governor then read a number of letters
from residents of the nfllictod sections , showIng -
Ing that they have been left do.stituto and
without the mans of support. Continuing ,
tbo governor said :
"It is on account of such appeals as nro
made In these letters that I appear before
you. To the business men I sny , what you
giro today you will reap back in two years ,
with ton and twenty/old / added. A storm
now menus much. Let a blizzard como and
ton. twenty , yes , scores of these people will

liberally , for Just as sure ns cold weather sots
In the news will go abroad that people In Ne
braska have frozen aud starved to

that it Is better that the facts should now bo

send abroad the names that the people of Ne
braska have frozen to death tn their own
"Tbo county commissioners of the various
counties have been instructed to distribute
the supplies to the needy and I have tssued
most stringent orders that no man who is
nblo to support himself shall have any of
these supplies. In addition to this 1 have In
structed ttio distributing ofllccrs to kocp nn
accurate account of every pound of coal and
flour sent out. "
Dr. Martin of tbo Kearney industrial school ,
who has traveled over thodlslressetl country ,
said :
"Mr. M lyor and Citizens of Nebraska I
am not hero to make a speech , but to give you
some facts. For two weeks I was among the
people , visitlnpsovon counties , to see Just the
exact condition of the scitlcrs. There nro
gentlemen hero who know that the soil of
these counties Is as fertile as can bo found
anywhere in the state , but this year no corn ,
wheat , oats , potatoes or grass grow. It was
not on account of lock ot industry , but the
hot winds came and in a few days the
prairies were as brown nnd bare as a floor.
Those peonlo have no crops to sell and noth
ing ta eat but com bread , nnd very llttlo of
that. They are now on our bauds and we
have them to feed and keep warm during the
next nine months. A cnroful estimate shows
that at least eight thousand people are in this
"Wo do' not need to sea tier the news that
Nebraska Is in need , for it is not. There nro
a few counties , but the state is ono of the
richest in the union and she can take care of
hero needy ones. "
Thomas Kllpatrick urged upon the meeting
the Importance of speedy action. Ho also
stated that ten carloads ol coal nnd 5,000
pounds of clothing had already been shipped
to the residents of twelve counties.
M. V. Gnnnoii said ;
"In my younger days my eyes looked upon
many scenes such as Governor Tnayor and
Dr. Martin portrayed. As I listened I had
all I could do to keep back the tears. Tnis is
a time for writing bank drafts , and not
poems ; this ia a tlmo when tbo people of
Omaha should stretch out their hands. If
they do not , nnd they let their brothers die
upon thoAvestern plains , they nro not worthy
of being called American citizens I trust
that Omaha will demonstrate to the world
that she will do ns much , proportionately , as
nny people In the union. It will then be said
that Omaha did her duty nobly. I bogof
you , I demand of you that you come forward
nnd help the people ) of western Nebraska.
Too much credit cauuot L > o given to tlio grand
old man who , ns your chlof executive , told
you of toe condition of these peoplo. "
Kov. Dr. Duryoa said :
"After looking over this audience I might
bo induced to believe that the Omaha census
was padded. I suppose this small house is
positively caused by the fact that each
man thought his neighbor would bo
hero and wanted to prevent crowding.
If you could gel face to face with these suffer
ing /armors in the western part of the state
you would give freely. Uo home and sit
down , think of the little god hut without a
flro to warm its occupants , the empty cup
board without oven a crust. Make this
picture and then gaze at your own homo , fin
ished lu oak and mahogany. Let the ruin
como to you. 'you must give.1 Shall a score
or a hundred people die of huuner and cold in
Nebraska while our larders and coal bins are
full ? You never go to a reception until most
ol the decent people are ready to go home ,
you never como to church until the sermon is
nearly finished , but I will fool you some time ,
for I am going to preach my sermon and
hnvo the rest of the sorviecs afterwards. But
I want to. toll you that you must help the
farmers of the wust , and now Is the time. "
Today the committee from the board of
tnuio will visit tlio business men for the pur
pose of taking their contributions , and ia the
meantime , these who are not call oil upon uro
requested to call at Secretary Nuson's oflico

Chief Detective Haze found that Halstead
md pawned n gold watch nnd diamond pin

mwnbrokor corresponded with that lost by
