The success that Ima crowned the ef
forts of the Manufneturors Association
of Nobrnska during the first year of its
oxlstnnco hns naturally led to the con
templation of nn enlarged field of use
fulness and Improved facilities for carry
ing on the bonnflcont work In which it
is engaged. The first exposition hold
under thn auspices of this association
last Juno In this city proved successful
beyond the expectations of its most san
guine frlcnda. It was visited by about
20,000 people in addition to no less than
11,000 school children to whom free tick
ets of admissio'n were issued. The asso
ciation not only succeeded in presenting
to tlio view of visitors a display of No-
brnska products that excited the admir
ation and wonder of all who saw thorn ,
but it also made a handsome sum of
money , not for the behoof of the associa
tion itself but for the continuance of the
work which it lias undertaken. The ob
jects of the Manufacturers an3ociation
have frequently boon explained in the
columns of this paper. It exists solely
for the purpose of promoting the inter
ests of the manufacturers and tradesmen
of this Btato upon the ba is of homo pa-
tronnge. The scope of its work is broad
enough to include every farmer and
every wage earner , for every forward
step taken by the manufacturer or the
tradesman Is n benefit to the people tit
large , no matter what tholr occupation
may bo.
The ollleors and members of the asso
ciation are now deeply Interested in a
project to provide a pullablo and por-
mnnetit building for future annual ex
hibitions. It is desired that a central
and convenient location bo secured and
u building erected thereon which will
ulToril irmplu accommodations. Thus far
tlio movement may bo taid to bo in em
bryo , but these who favor it are decid
edly In earnest and firmly believe that
it Is practicable. It. is proposed that a
site bo chosen In the custom part of
the town , or in some locution accessible
to all street car lines , and that a build
ing bo erected huitablo for the exposi
tions of the association and for con
ventions and gi oat meetings of all kinds.
The need of a great auditorium in this
city lias been felt in the past and will
become yet moro evident in the future
as the city of Omaha grows and becomes
joar by year more central and moro con
venient as a gathering point for the
surrounding population.
While it is yet impos-iiblo to present
the details of the plan suggested , it maybe
bo said in gonnral terms that it is based
upon the idea that the association is es
tablished as a permanent institution ;
that it will need a permanent exposition
building especially adapted lo the pub
lic convenience by reason of its accom
modations in the matter of room and
location , and that such a building would
often bo in demand fo.- the tiso of con
ventions and other great assemblages.
It is proposed that a stock company bo
formed , of which the Manufacturers as
sociation would materially constitute
the majority , and it is believed that the
latter would bo able to turn in a hand
some sum every year ns the result of its
profits from expositions. This would
certainly prove to bo the case if the
income from tlio initial exposition last
Juno at the Coliseum may bo taken as
a criterion.
It is natural to expect that a state
exposition that has proven so interest
ing and profitable will eventually , and
perhaps very soon , develop into an in
terstate affair in which the stales of
Iowa , Katifaas , South Dakota , Wyoming
and Colorado , and possibly Missouri ,
will share with our own great state' of
Nebraska. It should bo the aim of the
Manufacturers association to make
Oinahii the exposition con tor , as it is
already thu commercial center , of a vast
territory beyond the borders of this
commonwealth. Wo believe that , this
is practicable nnd that the birth of a
great intorstnto exposition , to be held
annually in Omaha , will bo hastened by
carrying out the project , of erecting a
sult.ablo building upon the plan briotly
outlined above. As yet it is only a
suggestion and n thoino of discussion ,
but from such beginnings great enter
prises have been developed.
According to a recent interview with
United States Fish Commissioner Alex

visit to the seal islands in IJerlng sea ,
the poachers have practically exter

The latest reports regarding the con
dition of the iron industry show it to bo
vary satisfactory. It is stated that the
consumption of pig Iron exceeds tlio
production and that there is n very
active demand for structural iron and
plates. The latter statement Is sfgnlll-
cant ns showing how much moro exten
sively than formerly iron and stool are
entering into the construction of build
ings , which of course moans n more
general erection of fireproof structures.
The country learned a most costly les
son from the great Chicago and Boston
llres , before which there was hardly n
fireproof building , in I ho country owned
by private parties , such buildings being
construt'lod only by tlio federal govern
ment. Since then there hasbcon steady
progress in the erection of fireproof
structures and reform in this respect Is
certain to bo more general in the future ,
because it is demonstrated to bo by far
the most economical policy in the end.
A steady growth In the demand for
structural iron is therefore assured and
this moans an expansion of the iron
industry commensurate with the in-
uroasa in building throughout the

roads are projected they are not.of sucli

equal to the capacity of the mills of the
country. It is an important fact in the
current history of business that the iron
industry is doing well , because' there is

The president of Columbia college has
nuujruratcd a reform in that institution
ivliich should bo generally adopted by
colleges and universities where the
> raelico of liaxinc is still In vogue. It
ippcars that hazing1 nnd hooting and
ushing of freshmen by sophomores
mvo been growing for several years at
Columbia , and tlio president determined
to put a stop to it. Accordingly at the
opening of college last wool ; ho told the
incoming sophomore class that while
lie had respect for trials of strength be
tween the classes where the contests
were friendly , and did not object to
rushes when both classes mot on equal
terms , yet the hooting at freshmen , the
compelling1 of them to stand treat , and
other insults inflicted by gangs of
sophomores "on single freshmen , were
cowardly blackguardism and no gonlle-
mnn would take part in any such pro
ceeding , lie appealed to the self-respect
and sense of honor of the sophomores ,
taking good cure , however , to back up
the appeal witlutn adequate Jiolico force.
When the freshmen assembled for
their entrance- examination they found
thai something unprecedented probably
in college history was going on. The
college grounds were guarded by police
men , who had instructions to arrest any
sludcnt who attempted to interfere with
another , and college ollleors were sta
tioned so that they would bo able to re
port any sopbomoro who hooted. There
was no Iron bio at the examination , and
although subsequently some of the moro
reckless of the sophomotos manifested n
disposition to break over the bounds ol
propriety the certainly of expulsion in
such case restrained them. It it
staled that the great body of the stu
dents agree with the president that
ha/.ing and insults are practices that
ought to bo suppressed , and the presi
dent is determined to suppress thorn ii
it costs Columbia every sophomore.
If this reform should become general
with the colleges of tlio country it would
remove au evil , tor the practices inter-
dirled tit Columbia are nothing less
which are n source of alinosl endless
trouble to the faculties of many of these
institutions , and relieve college lifo o
what to many students is a serious hard
ship. The president of Columbia i :

Conservative business methods , base
upon u bound financial bystoin , are pn
ducing good results in the commorch
affairs of the country. This 'fact ,
forcibly exhibited by tlio steady di
creatio in the number nnd magnitude <
business failures in the United State
According to mercantile agency rupor
there has boon u largofalling off , bet
in tlio number of failures and in tl
aggregate liabilities in all sections <
the country in the past nine month
Tlio decrease in the liabilities is mo
marked. In'thoKow Knglaml titates
was about ono-third , in t'uo midd !
states ( H-or one-half , and in the wc
cm und southern states about t )
The natural inference from those'fac
is that the great doereubu In llnbllitl
indue to the management of buslne
enterpriser upon conservative principles.
These who have fidlcdlmvo boon mainly
small tradesmen \Kiolhavo found after n
short trial that lllylWoro engaged In a
doubtful oxporhncm ind have accord
ingly retired from the field before be
coming very badly involved , so that the
losses individually and in the aggregate
have boon remarkably HffhU The num
ber of largo failure * reported is very In
significant In comparison with the rec
ords of previous years. Some of the best
commercial authorities attribute this
excellent showing to the prevalence of
largo crops and favorable prices last
year , resulting In a great improvement
of the debt paying ability of the people ,
but It is also true that business men arc
crowing moro conservative and care
ful. Speculation is at a very low
ebb and there is an increasing ten
dency on the part of buyers lo pay for
what they gel ; lu olhcr words the credit
system lias boon narrowed d0wn nnd
trade has approached moro nearly to u
cash basis. It lias boon a noticeable fea
ture of the commercial reports for many
months past that collections were con
stantly reported good. 'Carrying this
out to its logical conclusion it means
that the people are boiler able lhan
usual to pay their debts and lliat they
are not incurring unnecessary obliga
ESTlMATliS regarding the probable
product of corn vary from 1,1(70,000,000 (
bushels to 1,700,000,000 bushels , nnd the
yield will doubtless bo somewhere be
tween these figures. The most careful
estimate wo have soon gives Nebraska
in round numbers 180,000,000 bushels ,
Kansas 127,000,000 and Iowa 230,000,000
bushels. The indicated yield per acre
is in these states respectively 2SJB , 24.H
nnd 28.-1. It appears from such data as is
available that tliero is required for do-
uieslic consumption a little under Ihirty
bushels per capita , which would call for
aboul 1,000,000,000 bushels between now
and tlie next crop. Assuming this cal
culation to bo correct , it will bo soon
that the highest ostimnto of Iho year's
crop is at least 200,000,000 bushels below
low the estimated homo demand , mit as
the maximum liirures as to the yield are
doubtless too high it will probably bo
safe lo say Hint the doficoncy will ap
proximate oOO,000,000 bushels. There
seems to bo no considerable amount of
old corn on hand in any of the surplus
stales but two , and this will perhaps not
greatly exceed Iho foreign demand. It
would thus appear Uiat the corn producers - '
ducors have a very favorable prospect
for profitable prices ( during Iho next
year , which is improvpd by the fact that
there is alee a deficient simply of oats.
Tnu first celebratidn in honor of Iho
discovery of America begins in New
York tomorrow with a school and col
lege parade , to bo followed on Tuesday
and Wednesday by nfival and military
parades , and closing . Thursday with a
banquet. The arrangements ( or tlioso
several displays are on an elaborate
scnlo , and the comraeijcial metropolis of
the nation , which 'appropriately in-
atigurales the" cbmruomorution of ono
of the most important events in human
history , will for the next four days bo
Iho scene of ono of Iho most memorable
celebrations in its history. On Friday ,
Oclobcr 21 , which has boon , by act of
congress , declared a national holiday ,
Iho .entire country will unite in cclo-
brating "Discovery day , ' ' with Chicago
as the central point of interest. Dur
ing llio next two weeks , therefore ,
popular atlenlion will bo largely
directed to the consideration of this
great event , and Iho otTeol cannot fail
to bo of great moral worth to the whole
people. It will servo lo direct the
minds of men lo Iho contemplation of
Iho wonderful development of civiliza
tion during four conluries , and with
the American people especially it will
conduce to a higher appreciation of the
value of free institutions , and lo a
stronger love and pride of country.
TUB upward tendency of prices shown
by the commercial reviews of the pasl
week offers much encouragement to the
western farmer. The steady improve
ment of trade and manufacturing inter
ests is also significant to him , for the
reason that general activity in these
lines is always accompanied by a
strengthened market for agricultural
products and the maintenance of a
steady and oven demand. Notwithstand
ing the prospect that tlio wheat yield of
Kuropo will bo larger than It was last
year Iho growing popularity of Ameri
can corn in KOIIIO portions of thn old
world is expected to keep the foreign
demand for thai great product of the
west up nearly to tlio figures of last
year , while the homo demand can
hardly bo diminished. It is too early
yet to determine tliorelation's between
foreign supply and demand with any
confidence , but if reports from European
stuliuliclan.s are lo bo rolled upon at all
it is evident that the present dullness of
foreign demand will soon end. That
prices should bo oj well maintained
while Kuropoan transitions are light
is regarded ns n gdod'fndlcation. '

The democratic campaign committees here
find themselves in a very embarrassing situ
ation. Their parly hai made the "forco
bill" the leading Issue of thn campaign , and
in many congressional districts it is the only
issue. At the opening of the campaign they
ordered a largo number of the election or
"forco" hill printed. It was then believed
that every speaker In the parly would want
one , every democratic newspaper would do-
maud one" , und the discreet workers would
nil desire a copy. It was not the intention ,
however , to give out the bill for educational
purposes , as the managers hud long since
luarut that the uill itself not only did not
inako democratic voles , hut lost thorn , for
the measure is not vicious and does uot pro
pose any improper intorforoneo with states' '
It was nrranccd that the "forco bill"
should DO dcscrlOQd as u turrtblo measure , as
ono which deprived every citi/.cn of his
rights nnd turnrd over the ballot nnd
the offices to the nocroos. But , the copies of
the bill Itsell were to bo given out only to
men known to bo nil rinht. Very severe in
structions were issued to uot only the demo
cratic committees here , but the oflicora of
the document room of the lower house of
A day or two ago an oiflcor in the Treasury
department received 3 loiter from a frlond
In Indiana , requesting a copy of the so-called
"forco bill. " Ho stated that ho had neen
informed that the supply In the hands ot the
republican committees was exhausted ,
whloh was true , ns the republicans
have wanted no Dettor denunciation of
the lies home circulated about the
election bill than the bill itself. It
vindicates itself , and no fair minded or in
telligent honest man can read it without sav
ing it is just and right nnd should bo in
forco. So the department ofllc'al ' started
out to got a copy for his Inalana correspond
ent. Ho found none ut any republican
place and finally found himself loaning over
the railing at the house document room ask
ing the democratic superintendent to glvo
him a copy of Ino "force bill. " Tneso Dills
are printed for no partisan , but are paid for
out of the public treasury und belong to anyone
ono who culls for thorn.
"Can I got a copy of the force bill ? " in
quired the oflicial deferentially.
"Well"said the suporlntendont , looking
nt the inquirer suspiciously , "Iain not sure
that wo have them.Vhotndoyouwant It

"A man in Indiana , " was the reply.
"Is he a democrat or republican ? "
