The Bland bill for the free coinage of silver
Is dead for this session of con cross at least
and cannot como np again until next Decem
ber. Both tbo national conventions and the
presidential campaign Itself -will have be
come history before thl * question can acaln
\irlso in congress. Mr. Bland , who bas clung
i tbo last to the booo of galvanizing the bill
Into life , admitted Into ibis afternoon \vllh
obvious reluctance that tbo bill is dead for
Many Influences combined to bring
about this icsult In the Informal
conferences uf Sunday and Sunday
nlpht. As a result of this Influ
ence , Speaker Crisp announced today that
lie would not call a mooting of tbo committee
on rules to consider a resolution to fix an
hour or for a final vote on the free coinage
bill , and would not vote for such resolution
In tao committee Itself unless ho wore po-
tltlonod to do so hy n majority of the demo
crats of tbo bouse.

Tonight Mr. Bland said to TUB BEE cor
respondent : "As soon as 1 heard that the
spcnucr had como to such n determination I
went to him and asked about It. The
speaker told too it was true and there would
bo no cloture resolution unless a majority
petition cnmo to him. I told him 1 could
hardly bellovo It. Wo had some further
conversation , but nothlne was said In heat. "
4''Wbj'weroyou so surprised when you
oard of tbo speaker's decision ! "
N "For a very simple reason , " was the
reply. "When last Thursaay night , or
rather early Friday morning1 , I moved that
tbo bouse 'adjourn , it was with a distinct
understanding that n cloture resolution
would be broucht up and that understanding
was had with tbo speaker himself bv mvsolf.
Of course I was surprised when 1 learned
tbat tbo agreement was not to bo carried
"Do you think that the bill Is dead ! "
"For a tlmo , yes. "
"How would it bo possible to get it through
the house this session ! "
"There is no possible way of doing so with
the speaker against us. He knows that we
could not got a majority of tbo
democrats to petition for a cloture
resolution. Ho Itnmv that ho has
a sufllciont number of friends wbo
would refuse to sign such n petition to mnko
it itDDOs < siblo to secure the necessary major
ity. Well , I might asoll confess , the bill is
dead as far as this congress is concerned. It
has been killed by tbo speaker and his
friends. 1 do not care to discuss tbo proba
ble effect that the hill will have upon the
political future of the democratic party. "
i Sugar Production * .
Today the census bureau completed statis-
Ics on the production of maple sugar and
Fraaplo syrup throughout tbo country from
" -which it appears that much to tbo surprise
of tha census ofllcml tbat Nebraska Is to
OHIO extent at least a producer of tboso
articles. The productions last year wore
conllned exclusively to Douglas county
which produced twelve pounds of maple
sugar and thirty-nine gallonsof mnplosyrup.
Nebraska Is the most extreme western state
where maple productions are reported and it
is believed that no maple sugar and syrup is
made west or northwest of tbat state. She
produced nothing from the maolo according
to tbo returns of tbo census in 1850.
Ilotr to Treat tlio Indians.
Senator Pettigrew of South Dakota , in his
talk on the Indian question before tbo QuaK-
on. ' meeting at Philadelphia on Saturday
evening , used some practical illustrations
drawn from his own experiences in the Da-
betas and Northern Nebraska which ut-
trac'.ed much attention and wora warmly
commended. Senator Pettlgrew , wbo is a
prominent member of tbo senate committed
on Indian affairs , said among otber things
tbat the Indians should bo brought into Im
mediate contact with civilized life to enable
them to measure up to the standard of citi
Ho advocated removing them from the degrading
grading and demoralizing influences which
surround them on the reservations. Tha
people of the east , he said , were condemning
[ y'tboso of the west for the treatment of the In-
\f dlaus , and yet those of the east get all tbe
contracts and shape and dictate the wbolo
Indian policy. Ho praised the present ad
ministration , saying U was controlled and
shaped by the wisest and most dovotoa
o nicer that ever hold the position of commis
sioner of Indian affairs. Tbo people of South
Dakota , ho satd , are In earn on and want the
Indians civilized , but moro schools are
needed and an education for every Indian
child is desired.

The Omaha and South Omaha city direc
tory for 1693 has just madn Its appearance ,
Tresh from the hands otthc compilers , J. M.
Wolfe & Co. , nnd Is on Improvement over
any of Its predecessors in moro ways than
one. Ono notlocablo change is that it is less
than two-thirds tbo size of the directory of
1SUI , though showing an increase In popula
tion of 553. The reduced size Is duo to the
Improved arrangement of the columns of
names and addresses , which in tbo new
volume are arranged In two columns Instead
of one as in previous years. The matter
Is thus rnado moro compact and
will probably bo found moro easy of
reference. Thus arranged , with a small
Increase In the width of the page ,
though thcro is no perceptible change In the
size of tbo cover , the book is consldor.iblv
less bulky and much easier to handle. In the
directories of all cities that hove attained
mctrouolllan proportions it has been found
best to adopt the double column svstem , nnd
Omaha has reached that stage. The number
of individual names in the volume is 4 .GiO ! ,
which , estimating the usual number of throe
to a name , shows a population of 142,3.20 , as
against the 140,452 shown by tha United
Status census of 1SDO. A brier sketch of the
work of the past year shows substantial
growth nnd progress , witn real estate trans
fers amounting to $10,000,000 and now build
ings costing $3,000,000 , besides public im
provements made bv the city nnd franchised
corporations amounting to nearly $3,000,000
more. A mortuary list , containing a record
of all deaths reported to the Board of Health
during the voar , is a new feature. The di
rectory also shows 1.020 births during 1&91 ,
nnd 317 during the first two months of 18U. !
South Omaha Is treated by itself on the
samn scale as the larger city with the single
exception that tbo names are arranged in
single column as of yore. None ot the
Smiths , Petersons , Olsons or Joneses seem to
bavo gotten nwov. So far as > observed all
the old ones are' there and several cir loads
ot new ones. The publishers uro justly
proud of their latest work , and there is little
doubt that nil who have occasion to use it
will be duly pleased in proportion.

E. V. Wood of McKoe's Rocks , Allegheny
county. Pa. , in speaking to a traveling man
of Chamberlain's medicines said : "I recom
mend tnem nbovo all others. I have used
thorn myself , and know them to bo reliable.
I always guarantee them to my customers
and have never had a bottle returned. " Mr.
Wood had hardly finished speaking , when a
tittle girl came in tbo store with an empty
bottle. It was labeled , "Chamberlain's Pain
Balm. " The traveler was interested , as
there was certainly a bottle coming back ,
but waited to hoar what the little girl said.
It was as follows : "Mamma wants another
bottle of that medicine ; she savs it is the
best medicine for rheumatism fcbeever used. "

"Tbo association is waiting patiently for

In a recent issue TUB BEE published over
a page of interviews with prosperous farm
ers in various portions of Nebraska , each of
wbc.m gave his personal cxpenonco in tilling
the soil , in slock raising , in fruit culture , etc.

success of Nebraska farmers as demonstrated
by THE BEB. Farmers and business mon at
once became interested and uro now demand
ing moro information with respect to other
sections cf the state. Tlio issue was soon
exhausted and Into orders for extra copies

ments could bo held out to prospective set
tlers or land buyers than the facts as gleaned
bv THE BEE , coming directly from tbo men
who bavo made fortunes on Nebraska farms.
TIIE Bnc will soon print another exhaus
tive showing of the agricultural resources of
various oounties. Old residents have been
interviewed , and they furnish a fund of

ductive qualities of soil , perfect climate , ex
perience with successive crops , advantages
of Htoo.k raising , fruit and tree culture in
short every essential fact to prove that Ne-
oraska U pre-eminent us an agricultural and
stock raising stato. This information will
bo In demand not only in this section , but ,
will boot interest to thousands of dissatisfied
lurmors in eastern stales who are looking
for more desirable locations. All orders for
extra copies will be promptly filled.
