Various movements hnvo been In
augurated in Omaha having In view the
development of the milling and manu
facturing Industries. The object
deserves the active support and co-op < jr-
ntlon of all classes. VVilli a location
unsurpassed , a tributary region afford
ing an nbundanco of raw material for
conversion Into articles of commerce
and u steadily expanding market for the
product , the city offers tempting in
ducements to skilled energy iind unem
It is riot stifllclcnt , however , to
secure the location of a new
factory In the city. Every citbon bus a
direct Interest in its success , The com
munity 1 ? obligated to give it every pos
sible assistance , to purchase Us products
in preference to those of ether cities.
All things bolng equal , it is entitled to
precedence. To ignore it nnd purclmso
like product from a distant city Is to stab
local prosperity and aid in strengthen
ing a competitor which contributes noth
ing to the support of the community.
The manufacturing interests of Omahu
tire largo and varied. Ono hundred ana
sixty-eight in number , they comprise a
vast range of industries , and produce
all the materials required In the build-
in L' trades , besides domestic untonillH ,
boots nnd shoes , clothing , carriages
nnd wagons , food products , the various
manufactures of it on , shot , load pipe ,
white lead , nnd a host of ether articled
of practical utility and nec'csslty. These
factories employ during the busy season
an army of lli.OUO men , whoso pay roll
aggregates $1,000,000 a month , and turn
out annually products valued at $25-
It is a lamentable fact that this great
interest does not receive the homo sup
port and encouragement its importance
deserves. Local factories are dis
criminated against and frequently
ignored by men who are vitally
concerned in the prosperity of
the city. It is a common complaint that
orders for material which ought to bo
given to homo institutuions are sent
abroad , depriving local factories and
workingmen of the support properly belonging -
longing to them. Nor Is this vicious
practice confined to individuals. The
city council has in one conspicuous in
stance snubbed homo industries nnd
given to a Chicago house n conttuot
which local Institutions were fully coin-
potent to fulfill both in quality of ma
terial , workmanship and price.
In like manner the school board pro
poses to disburse abroad the subitaneo
of the tnxpayors. Experiments are to
bo made with now systems of heating ,
the HUCCOSS of which is a matter of spec
ulation. Why the board should specu
late with novelties at tlio present time
Is u mystery. Tlio systems of heating
and ventilation now in vogue are practi
cally perfect. Tlio material is in stock
by our merchants and competent me
chanics are ready and anxious for work.
Is it just to ignore homo merchants nnd
homo workmen and pour the public
moneys into the colTors of men who have
no interest in the wolfavo of the city } "
Prudence and self-interest demand
that the money bo kept at homo. Local
industries nnd local workmen are enti
tled to preference , oven if the cost is
greater. Every dollar disbursed at
homo contributes to the general pros
perity. The factories are kept moving ,
idle hands are employed and the chan
nels of trade Improved to that extent.
This policy is particularly essential
at the present time. Thereto scarcely a
factory in the city running on full time.
Tlio volume of work on hand and in
sight is limited , consequently the force
of employes is reduced or else working
half-time. Nor is it possible for manu
facturers to extend their business to
ether citlus as in Hush years. Every at
tempt to do so is mot with the successful
cry , "Patronize homo institutions. "
Success in securing now factories in
the future will bo measured by the pros
perity of these already hero. Sentiment
will not make the wheels of industry
move. The people must give practical
force to their faith by supporting and
patronizing home institutions. It is the
bounden duty of every loyal citizen ; it
is the obligation of public ofilcials. The
individual who Ignores homo institu
tions is false to himself and his city ; the
olllcial who sanctions the disbursement
of public money abroad , to the exclusion
of local industry , is an enemy "of the
public interests and recreant to his
OUR sTitoxa FiN
The financial position of the United
Stales was never stronger than it is to
day. It is worth while to remark this
at a time when there are disturbing and
reactionary elements among our people
who are advocating departures that
would unsettle the monetary system of
the country and revolutionize the finan
cial policy whoso good results are now
so obvious. For weeks wo wore sending
gold abroad at an nhncut unprecedented
rate.Vhllo it seemed possible that
the drain might long , bo main
tained there was &ome uneasi
ness. Financial institutions cur
tailed their loans and plans wore talked
of for chocking the outward movement
of the yellow metal. Speculators bo-
cnmo wury and prices In the stock mar
ket receded. Notwithbtanding the fact
that wo had a larger htock of gold than
any ether country , with perhaps the ex
ception of Prance , there was a feeling of
anxiety. But every demand that cnmo
from the strained money markets of
Europe wan promptly mot , until nearly
$50,000,000 of our gold had departed ,
when there came an ebb in the tide.
The relief which the foreign mar
kets needed had been supplied and the
great foreign bankers sent their insur
ances that the United States had noth
ing to fear. There hud really boon no
substantial cause for anxiety , for wo
wore prepared to meet double the drain
without seriously impairing our re
The gold wo have lost has cost us no
appreciable trouble. No legitimate busi
ness Interest has experienced the slight
est injuries from It , and wo have again
given Europe substantial evidence of the
solid character of our financial nnd com
mercial status. When a few months
ngn the financial centers of Europe
suffered a tremendous shock from
the failure of the Barings , American < to-
curitfoa alone found a ready market. In
the face of an Impending danger , the
possibilities of which no one could fore
see , nnd which for a time threatened
overwhelming disaster , our securities
stood fast in the confidence of investors.
Tlio later events have Justified this con
fidence and will increase It. When all
the monetary centers of Europe needed
gold tlio United Suites was the only
country that could supply them , nnd
it did go without weakening
Its financial position or suffer
ing any disturbance of its In
ternal business nffalrs. Every dollar of
this gold , and moro with it , will return
In good time. Europe cannot keep It in
hoard. It will come back to pay for our
grain and cattle , and if nil Indications
do not fail , it will pay n generous Inter
est. Meanwhile our securities thai are
marketed abroad will grow in confidence
and bo more largely sought for , raising
them in value there uiul hero.
This is at once nn on viable and a highly
advantngcous position for u country
to occupy , and it is u position of
which every intelligent American cltl-
/on ought to bo proud. It Is duo to con
sistent adherence to a sound and con
servative llnancial policy , which , while
carefully considering domestic nocdd in
such steady and safe expansion of the
currency us the growth of population
and business requires , lias never lost
sight of the necessity of conform
ing itself to the commercial re
lations which wo hold with the
rest of tlio world. The duty of main

The growing interest in the produc
tion ol boot sugar in the United States ,
largely stimulated by the success already
achieved In Nebraska , tuul the highly
favorable outlook for the industry in
this btato. found expression in the
Denver commercial convention. That
body adopted n resolution commending
tile paying of a bounty by the national
government upon the sugar proJucod in
the United States , and urging that fur
ther encouragement be given this in
dustry , "that promises the production
of an Hlclcnt sugar to supply the
entire United Stales , with a
surplus for export. " This is a sanguine
view of the possibilities of this industry ,
but who shall say that it may not bo
In order to appreciate the great im
portance of the sugar industry it is only
necessary to btato that during the year
ending Juno 30 , 1890 , the importations
of sugar into the United States amounted
to 2,931,000,000 pounds , valued at $101-
20:5.000. : Of this .amount the boot sugar
importation from Germany , Austria ,
Hungary , Belgium , France , Great
Britain and Ireland , and the
Netherlands was (501,000,000 ( , pounds
valued nt $18,000,000. The people
ple of the United States paid
during that year to Cuba , tlio Hawaiian
islands , the British West Indies , British
Guiana , Porto Rico and the Philippine
islands , a total of ever $74,000,000. In
all probability the importations of the
fiscal year now drawing to a close will
show a considerable increase ever those
largo figures , and every year the con
sumption of the country is increasing.
Such facts furnish an unanswerable
argument in favor of liberal encourage
ment by the government of the produc
tion of sugar , at least until the
experiment shall bo given a
thorough trial and the fact
demonstrated whether or not it Is possi
ble for this country to largely or wholly
supply the requirements of its people.
If this can be nttuinedand there is intel
ligent and conservative opinion that it
can bo , the sugar industry will In time
reach proportions exceeded by few
others when results to producers and
manufacturers arc combined , and will
furnish an added source of prosperity to
the agricultural interest of immense
value. Our people would then bo inde
pendent of the rest of the world for
ono of their greatest necessities , a
vast sum of money now annually
sent abroad would bo kept at homo and
sugar would bo materially cheapened to
the consumer. With a production equal
to our wants there would bo no danger
of combinations to control tlio markets.
Manifestly the promise of no ether in
dustry makes a stronger claim to gov
The indications are that in the devel
opment of the sugar industry in the
United States , Nebraska is to piny a
largo part. The secretary of agricul
ture has publicly stated that bo
found the conditions hero far more
iavorablo to success than in
California , and it is generally admitted
that there is nowhere a bettor soil and
climate for the cultivation of the sugar
beet than exists in portions of Nebraska.
There is no good reason why in a few
years , if this industry shall continue to
receive the fostering encouragement it
evidently deserves , this state will not bo
producing ououch sugar to supply hoi-
own people and make a valuable addi
tion to her commerce with adjoining
states. The sense of the Denver conven
tion regarding this industry will become
the sense of the country , if it is not so
( ntAfff .uvo I'ltoDUut ; MAHKRT.
Now that the Denver congrosi is ended
and the executive ofllcor of the board of
trade of this city is at homo again , the
subject of warehouses and a grain and
produce market ought again to coma to
iho front for consideration. The board
ii a trifle slow in reaching conclusions
and mortally tedious in carrying out
plans , but if it expects to bo of any con
sequence at all in this enterprise of
making n grain and produce market in
Omaha It must take a hypodermic injec
tion of enthusiasm or drop out of the
procession. Omaha will not permit the
opportunity which the warehouse bill
presents for building up a grain nnd pro
duce market to pass unimproved. If the
board is not equal to the emergency it
can blame only itself if some ether llvo
organization stops in and reaps the bene
fits horonltor to accrue.
The great trouble with the board of
trade , as has frequently boon remarked ,
Is that It ix not a board of trade. Just
what functions In the commercial life of
the city it performs are not quite clear.
There is a strong odor of cooking nnd
eating about the chamber of commerce
building , but no fragrance of growing
crops of now Industry Hontlng through
Its rented npnrttuionU. It Is too nnioh n
rcnt-coUoctltfjj agency and junketing
association to bo a particularly potent
force in the lyoferosBof Omaha. It must
take on now ulo , adopt and carry out
now plans nndfyish out Into the affairs
of the city wiw an aggressive purpose
to bo useful Ixjoro anybody will be im
pressed with its importance or concede
to It the placo/iiftihuuld occupy.
Although ujit'fivo'Woous are loft before -
fore the now wiCfehouso bill will become
tv law , no dofialtb plan for utilizing its
advantages lihtf been devised by the
board of trade. That organization rec
ognizes the value of the measure to
Omaha , but its membership is so indif
ferent that scarcely a corporal's guard
can bo assembled on call to consider
ways and moans for securing warehouses
nnd creating a market. Tlio board of
trade has no right , in view of all thoclr-
cutnstfincos , to Hud fault wltii the gen
tlemen , Komo of them Us members , who
are working intelligently , persistently
and definitely toward establishing hero
just such u market as grain and ether
dealers in food products demand.
It would be fortunate for all con
cerned if the board of trade with
its largo membership , tlio prestlgo of its
name , and the value of Its property
could bo made available , but enterprise ,
experience mid capital cannot well alTord
to wait longer for It to declare itself or
manifest its intentions.

Chlckasnws , und In Quo nrtlclo of thut treaty
the Choetuws and Chlckasaws leased tbol'r
common country lying between the ! )3th ) and
100th do reo west longitude for the iierma-
nunt settlement of the Wichita and such
other Indians as the government miyht dc-
siro.but the territory so leased was to remain
open to settlement by the Choctaivs and
Chicknsaws. On April 2tf. 180 < i , the United
States made a treaty \\lth the Choctaws and
Chtcltnsaws and uy the third article of said
treaty the Cboctnws and Chlckasaws worn
to ce'do to the United States the territory
west of the OSth degree of west longitude for
the sum 01 Siou.uoo , Uut tno Utioetaw general
council rejected that particular article , and
notified the government tnroutrh Simpson
Folsom , who was the nation's attorney at that
time , nnd the sale of that territory hiis been
nn open question until It was settled by the
last congress. Under thcso facts 'ho govoin-
meut justly owes the Choeiaws nnd Cbicku-
saws for t'u : land In question and If lue gov
ernment withholds the payment of the
amount appropriated to the Cnootaws nnd
Chlckasaws for their land , she will bo violat
ing the Choctaw rule of justice and fairness ,
nd ilnfraudlng poor , helpless Indians out of
their God-given right. "
Continuing , Judge Durant said the Choctaws -
taws nnd Chlckasaws Joined with the confed
eracy as n matter of self-preservation. If
they had not done so they would huvo been
at the mercy of the confederate ) .soldiers anil
would probably have greatly suffered. What
thev did in the war was doho us a mutter of
self-preservation. After the war the United
States made u proposition to the Choctaws
nnd Utik-knsaws to allot and accord negro
frcedmen cltirenshlp. This they rejected by
nn overwhelming popular voto.
