seIve. The chIcory manufacturer are.
Them seems to b a rod reason for makIng
the 1IstInctIon. A chicory factory haying a
capacity of 2,000 pounds per 11ay can bo
ereltll and equIpped for n.200. Of coure ,
this 1 a smal factory. but It would con-
f' Bumo the product of one acre of chicory beet"
per day Twenty or thirty farmers living In
any fa\'lrable locality couhl eaiy unite and
j erect a Co"olJlratve factory and manufacture
their own ehlcory. One of the frlenls of the
chicory bounty bas malIc a Ito estimate of
the posIbIIItIes lying within the Imlustry In
this possibities Blto developed le basel
his calculation upon the smalest plant that
, could bo operate under the bounty act , one
Illvlng a capacity of 2.000 pounds per da ) ' . .
Such a factory coulll lie built by twenty
farner at a cst of' $1Th eaeh. 1 could
manufacture the product of 200 acres per an-
3mm , or ten acres to each of the twenty I
farmers owning the co"operatve plant. The
finiahed prorluct of 200 acres of chicory b2etS
, fnished 'ouh be In round lumbers 200 tons of
chIcory. The chicory commands a really mar-
lccit at $80 per bulk ton on board the cars. The
Itate bounty would be $12.0 per ton. The
receipts would bN :

This would bo $926 to each of the twenty
farmers who had contributed ten acres of
l1eet8 each , or $92.50 per acre Out of thIs
, $ 92.50 per acre wouhl have to come the cost
of , producing the beet and the emaIl pro
rata cost of manufacturIng the chicory. The
farmer belonging to I co.opertvo company
could easiy make n Profit of $50 , per acre
o his chIcory beets ,
Ihasmuch ns the chicory Inllutry Is a eom-
ltmmuch new one In Nehr\sl , the pro-

The beets are first Mlel In a "drying" room.
Once dried they cnn be stored for nn In-

PI.ACE FOR A PIUNTFML
The house has passed the bill to create
another 1.lnce at the state house anti teaM
; aM to the already lane : and raphly grow-
log salary l t. The bill referred to I by
nouso of Hal county. anti It creates the
office oC "supcrvlsor oC 11blc printing. " nt
nn' ' annual salary of $1,500. The bill Insists
that the supervisor oC public printing shah
: \Ie a prctcl printer. A creful perusal of
the bill reveals but Ito for this newly
; cr atcd officer to do. There Is a provision
that "cxcept as otherwise provided by law
the supervisor of public printing shall see
that the work Is executed In n suItable man-
1er. and pursuant to law " Printing for the
executive ofcors Is to bo ordered through
the new o 1ce. and he 18 to see that the
ordered Is received. ,
full number of copies recelvc,1
; I Is required to audit nil accounts , keep
a record of the cOlt of printing and binding
and make an annual report to the governor. i
That's about all. The law does however ,
male n number of radical changes In the
present system of ordering anti paying ! for
IttO printing , and perhaps therein lies the
true merit or Iemerlt of thin bill. ns the
case may be At present contracts for report -
port oC state ofcers , state societies . logls"
aatve journals , session laws etc. . are let
at a stpulalcd price per page. and the price

? THAT MILFORD SANITARUM fILL.
Another bill passed by the house . and now
rending In the senate , Is worthy of careful
consideration before It Is permitted to be-
come a law. It Is the acceptance of the
offer oC the town of Milton ] to donate a
1Jldlng and a tract of land , to the state
upon condition that It bo used permanently
! S' I branch soldiers' home. The offer was
a tempting one to the house. The 11fori
Sanitarium which has been offered to the
ItatQ , has I state-wldo , reputation for Its
pitisant at ractveness : I would no doubt
make a most advantageous location for a
soldiers' hodie. I the mere acceptance of
the proffered gIft would end the mater t .o
state could wol afford to accept with alac-
rity. But I the gift Is fnaly accepted a
new state Institution will have been born.
I will have its superIntendent , physician ,
matron stewnrd employes etc. Every two
years the legislature wi have to mao appropriations -
propriatons for salaries and cmployes' wages ,

to say nothing of a biennial demand for
moro buidings , increased water supply , electric -

c"penslve "necessities" that are perennially
recurring to the mind of the ambItious su-
110rlntendent. Tile tree gift offered to tile

WILL KEEP TiE SENATE CLEAR
Sergoant-at-Arms Stewart proposes from
Monday morning on to enforce strictly to

from tile senate floor all Persons , who arc
not legally entitled to enter within the sacred

keepers to strictly observe the rules. The
gatcklepers , who are famiar wih the faces
of all who are entted to the floor , propose
to obey orders The rule which the ergeant-
atnrms proposes to enforce Is No. 43 of the
standing rnlos of the senate , and It provides :

The rallcal changes proposed by the bi
will be noted and apprecIated by the people
of Omaha , without a reproduction ofthe
existing law. The first notable feature of
the bIll now pending Is the one which enables
the state board , which Is to be dominated by
Attorney General Churchill and Commissioner -
stoner of Public Lands and DUldlngs Rus-
sell , to summarily remove all four of the
present tire and police commissioners and
appoint In their stead three electors of the
city , one whose term of office shall expire
December 31 of the present year , the Eecond
at this end of tim year 1896 and the third
December 31 , 1897. This prevision of the
law Is mandatory. Three new lIre and police
commissioners must b appointed wIthIn
thirty days after the passage of the act The
mayor I excluded from the board and conse-
quenthy from connection with the police
force. The bIll reduces the membership of
the board from live lo three , two of whom
may bo of the same party anti strikes out
the provision of the existing law which
makes the mayor ex-cmcio a member and
chairman of the board. 1 deprives the pop-
uilst party of all recognition or participation -
tion In the police commission
ton Is required that the chie of police and
the chief of the fire department shall be
elector of the city of Omaha. I the bill
should become a law , wlh the emergency
claus , the new Board of Fire and PolIce CommIssioner -
mIssioner would have a lawful excuse for
dismissing so efficient an officer as Fire Chief
Redel , for under the laws of the state Mr.
Redehl cannot become an elector of Omaha
fOr some little time yet to come.
It seems to be taken for granted by those
friendly to the bill that It wilt pass tile
senate unchanged , altlugh a number of
rejiublican senators admit privately that they
ar ublcan supportng the bill very reluctantly and
against their best judgment.

OADD'S LETTERS IN EVIDENCE.
A sensational feature of the NathAn T.
Gadl trial today was the introduction In

Receiver Whitehead of the Broken Bow land
ofce from Austin . Tcx. . where the defendant
went broke , after returning from Mexico.
Tile leters wee lhose of n man broken In
spirit anti poclletbool The wrller described
his agony of mind and said he had never
known a moment's peace since the defalca-
tion . Ho asked the receiver to forward
money for transportation to enable him to
retur' ' anti straighten out tile land office ,
books declaring that he was willIng to take :
ally punishment that might be inflicted '
rather than have Mr. Whltehad's political
enemies make capital of the embezzlement
agaInst him As to the cause of his crime , '
Oldd said no nmount of pressure would ever
induce hIm to revcal It , but ho would say
that It was done to avert a more terrIble
thing which was lt the time hanging over

A fellow clerk of the defendant from tile
land office identIfied Gadtl's initials . which
were dropped below the name of the receiver -
cel\er on the receipt books of the Wells
Fargo and Adnms Express companies These
books show that many packages of money ,
containing $200 and over In nearly every
Instance were received by Gadd and never
accounted for on the land office books. Re-
ceiver Whitehead took the stand and cor-
rbortC\ the testimony of Judge Reese
saying that Gadd had stolen something over
$2.300 In all . which the witness lal been
compelled to bake good at , the general land
office In Washington. Witness sent $30 to
Hev. E. Wright at Austin . Tex , and the
latter purchased Gadd a ticket to Lincoln.

GRAND ISLAND , Neb. . March 23.-
( pecal.-Miss ! ) Banche Edgerton of this
city , daughter oC Hon. and Mrs. J. \V. Elser-
ton , silently left home Thursday morning for
Lincoln , where sue married J. A. Edgerton.
The marrIage was much against the wishes
of tile lady's parent and her mother Is corn-
pletely prostrated over the affair. MIss
Blanche was \el and favorably Imown and
was a prominent member of several church
socIeties. ! r. Edgorton , her father , said In
regard t the affair :
"This Is a very painful sUbject for mo and
I would refuse to dIscuss I only for tile tact
that 1 was bitterly opposed to tile marriage
and In justice to myself and wife I want the
reasons for our oPPQslton known that we
may not bo judged wrongfully . J. A. and
myself arc double cousins : our fatherl were
brolhers and our mothers first cousins There
was Insaulty In our mothers' family . J. A.s
mother being Insane , and J. A. and my .
daughter have both inherited a highly
nervous toniperamnent from our mothers' ado
of the house. I did not rely alone on my
own judgment In this matter . but consulted
a number ot prominent physlcans ! , and they
all agreed that there was the greatest danger
to bo apprehended from such a lnarriago I
laid tile matter before J. A. and my laughter -
ter and requetell thel to take time to con-
aider and not to b In a hurry . but as J. A.
reCusel1 to listen . or walt I finally forbid his
coIning to my house. Du l wrote a letter
over day some of which my who and 1
read. lie was continually ImllorJng : , my
daughter to leave home and mnrry him. Ho
acid ho was engaged In n great literary
work that would.mako him famous and thal
ho would proL'bly bo elected president some
time and tha lie would set the world afire
In the coming revolution , but without her all
his literary work would be lost to the world
and I she did not marry him he would commit -
nut suicide. This threat overcame all our
reaoning and entreaty , but she left home In
tile morning Ileoro wo were up and welt to
Lincoln. Wo can't blame her 80 much as
silo Is only 18 and seemed be wholy under
hl control ; but for a great moral I reformer ,
