Hueh objections a * have boon nrjjod
ntiaiiiHltho Mil nny lur 'ly foundi'd on
niiiapprohi'iisioti.Onoof ' them l that
it Is purely for the benefit nf tin * western
purl of the state and that It will 1m In-
jurloitxto the ivistiM-ii half. This objection -
tion is based on a very narrow view of
tin1 ITW. When several of the western
counties sutiered do.itltuthm as the result
of the drouth , the injury was not limited
to thorn. The * whole state of Neiirusliii
was put before tlio country in tin iinfav-
ur.iblu Ik'bt ami taxed In ooinnion to
also means to moot the emergency.
The Injurious olVecU of such a calamity
'nil with equal force on till parts of I lie
stile. And in the sumo way all p-irti
, vill altiiro the prosperity which will
omo to tlio h-rul-ariil region umlaf a
, vlsn system of Irt'igation. The eastern
lalf of the state has , therefore , a very
vital int M'cst in putting tbo countiod
west of tlio ICOlli moi'idlan boyoitd tlio
reach of the drouth.
Under the provisions of the bill si sys
tem applicable to tlio ontlro length and
broadtli of tbo btute. from tbo Missouri
river to tlio boundary of Wyoming , Is
tihli : < < hi d upon bnnd foiindatmiH. It
would ho folly to begin with a .systom of
patchworkXo one can toll how far or
t tin * interest in Irrigation willtravnl ,
nor when the waters of the Missouri
will be in as great dniniiml a * tbo waters
of Iho N'orth I'lntte.
For Instance , the latest spontan-ous
convention was held S-it'irdayatO'N'elll ' ,
in Holt county , which is fur east of
the 100th meridian. The ( Usp.itoho *
state : "Kvorybody was onthiiblaiitic
and anxious to see some scheme in-
aiiguratod to give the county a
nysteinof irrigation. " Ani'issconvention '
lias been called to ineet.on the 17th. This
in a surprise to the friends of the move
ment , though * It is a very welcome sur
prise. It demonstrates how Hhort-sighted
policy it would Iw at this time , when Irri
gation bids fair to brseome the most im
portant development in western agri-
cult uro , to attempt to limit the opeiu-
lions of a benilleentlaw-to ono small sec
tion of the stale. The bill divides the
whole of Nebraska into water districts
and provides a system of administration
to bee that the law is impartially enforced -
forced , but as all local ollicors are paid
by the day no oxpcnso will attach to the
system in tlio eastern counties until they
begin to make use of it. It is manifestly
wise , however , to make provision at , this
time for their possible demands.
The only other the onai't-
nipnt of the splendid law submitted to
the legislature by the recent state and
district conventions comes from the cattle -
tlo men. / Their objection is purely
M-llihh. They want the western half of
the state to again become the cowboy's
empire. The battle is today , as it has
boon for a do/en years , between the
homesteader and the cowboy. The
homesteader has built ids house o1'cabin
on almost every quarter section west of
the rain bolt. Ho has enriched tbo laud
with thu labor of himself and family
through years of hardnhin and
sacrifice. The arid homestead
represents his total wealth and pros-
pacts. IIo now asks for laws that will
insure the development of , irrigation
and bring the powerful arm of capital to
his assistance. IIo is a xvh'iro ' tbo
cattleman is but a small company. Tlio
greatest good of the greatest number
demands that the prayer of the home
steader bo granted.
The friends of the irrigation bill are
ready to discuss it with all comers , but
they have full contidenco that the legis
lature will make it the law of the land.
The preliminaries for tbo survey of the
proposed international railway to con
nect the United States and South Amor-
lea have be-on arranged , and as soon tin
Iho surveying parties can bo organized
they will Mart out upon their important
tusk. There will be tbreo surveying
parties , including the milit-iry party al
ready assigned to the Central Amor'i.tu '
state- . , and the two to ho organi/.od will
work respectively north and south from
i central point in Colombia.
According to a report submitted hut
year by a board of oxpart engineers ,
which was unanimously favorable to the
project , the proposed international route
ll bo by steamship from Tampa , Fin. ,
to Cartagena , Colombia , a dist'inco
f a,7 ( ) miles , whieh is but half the dis
tance by way of Mexico. From Carta
gena a railroad 1,000 miles in length is
proposed , running up the valley of the
Magdalena , crodslng tlio Cordilleras ,
through a gap of only 0,000fuel elevation
in a range 1-1,000 feet in height. Thence
the proposed route runs to the valley of
the Ama/onia which it crosses , and then
traverses the western \vator-iho.l \ of that
river and its tributaries at an avoratro
elevation of 1,100 feet. Ily this
route tlio' territory of Colombia ,
Kouador and IVrn would bo traversed
and llollvia entered. The greatest dilll-
cully anticipated in the fiirvny iscroasing
the Andes in Colombia , and it isostimat-
ed Unit it will lake a year and a half to
complete the survey with the force now
arranged to bo sent into the Held. The
proposed route will traverse a healthful
country , and at all points within a short
distance of the greatest gold and silver
bearing region of the world , from which
tlies-o metals to the value of ilOftilOQt , .
000 have been taken. The road will
cross and connect 'JO.uUO miles of naviga
ble waters , and the building of 2" > 0 miles
In Ijolivia , Argentine Kupublio and
Chill will connect 11,000 miles of road al
ready built. The estimates of the cost
of tlio project range between SIOJ.OIH,000 )
and $ 00,000,000.
In order to appreciate tlio magnitude
of this enterprise ono must make a care
ful study of the map of the territory
trough which it is proposed to conduct
it and learn the many and great dilllcul-
ties to bo overcome. The crossing of
the Andes , if tbo chlof of these , is but
ono of many , the least of which might
have dismayed the engineering skill
of half a century ago , but none of
which has any terrors for that of today ,
The question Is not as to the practic
ability of building the road , because the
highest expert opinion has settled that.

The legislative committee on appor
tionment has perfected its bill providing
for an UUTOUMJ in this branch of the ju
diciary and for a now arrangement of
districts. An tbo bill has boon placed at

The bill Increases the number of
judges frmn 1M lolimnd of districts from
12 to M. The Douglas county district ,
which includes also the counliesnf Hurl ,
Snrpy \Vashlngton , will have throe
new judires , or a total of seven , Klght
wore asked for , but It is probable that
the number granted by Iho now arrange
ment will furnish Iho needed relief.
Lancaster County is separated from Cass
and Otoo and constituted the Third
district , with three judges , a gain of
ono. The remainder of the bill is de
voted to the rearrangement of old dis
tricts or improved geographical lines
and the division of those which have
formerly had more than one judge , with
tlio exception of the First. By this
means three new judges are gained.
Among the territory now under the
care of two judges , which is divided into
separate districts by the now bill , are
the old Sni-ond , Fourth , Seventh and
Tenth districts. The old Ninth , pre
sided ovur by Judges ll'irrison and Tif
fany , becomes the ne v Kleventh and re
mains a double district , with : ttl its old
counties and the addition of Hooker ,
Sherman ami Grant. The Tenth dis
trict becomes the Twelfth and Thir
teenth. Judge Hamcr retains the for
mer , with liiilTalo , Ctistor and Dawson
for his jurisdiction , and Judge Church
has the now district , composed of the
remote and sparsely settled western
Tlio apportionment appears to bo a
good one. It recognizes the demand of
the larger counties for improved judicial
facilities , but keeps the increased expense -
ponso down to a low figure. The four
now courts will involve an expanse by no
moans out of proportion to tlio benefits'
to bo gained by litigants. Tbo geographical -
graphical division is a great improve
ment and will materially assist in the
prompt dispatch of business.
The new judge ? will bo named by the
governor , but as the people will be called

The ciso isnn important ono and con

Tbo methods of the Minneapolis concern -

Organized by unscrupulous pnrsons , they

agent , collects his commission in advance
from the subscriber. Ho is responsible
to no ono , and does not scruple to resort
to disreputable means to secure his foos.
Tlio subscriber finds ; when his money is
paid that ho invested in "a pig in a

agents repudiated , but the certificate of
stock stipulates that the agent acted not

National associations depend on for
feitures for success. The stockholder is
tied down by rule- , and regulations , iviil
failure to meet his payments results in
confiscation of the amount already paid

the llrst two years , and in most cases
the limit is llvo years. Tno fact that
shareholders are sought mainly among
the wage-earning clas-e.i inalces thulr
method- , the more roprahoimble , for n
comparatively small pur cent of this
class of investors can afford to keep up
their payments continuously for llvo

Hut Indian Commissioner Morgan holds
a different opinion , and has nrcsciitod
his reasons therefor in a communication
to the secretary of the Interior. They
ire not convincing. The fact that an
Indian enjoys thu possession of a gun Is
not n satisfactory argument in favor of
allowing him to have ono , tiny more
than ll would bo In the case of an Irre
sponsible white man who should desire
to go around with a plslol in ills hip

ised communities properly prohibit ? .
The assumption that the life and prop
erly of tlio Indians would bo in jeopardy
if they wore deprived of llroarms cannot
be accepted , unless it bo admitted that
the government Is incapable of protecting iii'ople. As to making u distinc
tion between tho. < e who engaged in hos
tilities and these who remained loyal , It
would obviously bo unwise to do so. All
nuist bo treated alike. Disarming the
Indians is very gptier.illy behoved to l > o
a necessary precaution against a recur
rence of trouble with them , nnd the assurance -
suranco of Commissioner Morgan that
there is no danger of further dillteulty
will nol remove tlio apprehension of
these who nsk for Iho .security which dis

with this dcmnml , ami while It agrees
with Commissioner Morgan that the In
