. Jtinlata Herald : The subject of greatest
general Interest for the coming year te > Nebraskans -
braskans will bo the miccem ot the proposed
/ Transmlfilfrtlppl Exposition to bo held at
- * - Omaha In ISD8. Liberal subscriptions should
bo given to this great enterprise by our
moneyed men and all business men gen
erally. It will bo n grand thing for our
ntato and thn western country generally , the
ncopo of the exposition taking In not only
our country , but practically the whole world
nnd bringing to our very doors the men and
means needed In the development ot our
Nebraska City Prras : The Press , does not
dcslro to harp nn the question , yet It cannot
refrain from calling the attention of the
> legislature to that portion of Governor Hol-
comb's message relating to the Transmlssls-
nlppl Imposition. All Nebraska Is Inter
ested In the success of this mammoth under
taking and as this state will receive the
greatest benefits It Is ncccraary for Ne-
brankans to assume the leadership. Un
fortunately the governor failed to mention
nny sum which In his estimation would bo
proper , but the legislature should not bo
ntingy. Ily judicious management $100,000
can be saved to the state In the manage
ment of state Institutions which can surely
bo run for two years on an economic baala
Avhcn the reward In the end will be so great.
Add tn this $200,000 aiuPyou have a pretty
fair start. Other states are appropriating
$75,000 to $100,000 toward the enterprise and
certainly Nebraska can Judiciously afford to
expend thrlco the amount of any other com
Randolph Tiroes : The portion of the
United States commonly called the "corn
bolt" Is undoubtedly the richest In product
iveness ot any land or ell mo. Corn Is
synonymous with beef and pork , of the best
quality on earth. This fact alone , however ,
only expresses In part the wonderful re
sources of thu transmlsslsslppl country. The
exposition at Omaha will reveal to the world
the products of twenty-four of the greatest
agricultural states tn the union. Ily no
other means could there bo created such a
world-wldo Interest In the middle west and
particularly to Omaha as the exposition
would. The star of empire Is moving west
ward and the fact will bo moro fully recog
nized by the many thousands who will visit
Omaha from far and near and witness for
themselves what wonders western pluck and
push can accomplish and has accomplished.
Alliance Guldo : Our legislature will be
asked to make a liberal appropriation for
the Transmlsslsslppl Kxposltlon to bo hole
In Omaha next year. The government has
appropriated $ 00,000 for a national building
nnd exhibit , nnd the citizens of our state
metropolis are bestirring themselves most
liberally and putting forth all the energy
at their ctimmand to makt * : lic exposition a
brilliant success. It goes without sayiiiR
that every enterprising citizen In the state
feels a deep Interest In the Transmlsis.ilppl
Kxposltlon , nnd the consensus of opinion
throughout Nebraska Is that the legislature
should not bo niggardly In this matter , slnct
the state In general will bo benefited accordIng -
Ing to the success of the enterprise. Hon.
R , Iloscwntcr of Omaha has been placed at
the head of the Bureau of Publicity , which
means that If the exposition Is not the suc
cess It should be , no blame can attach to
the advertising department.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 18. ( Special Tele-
gram. ) The aundry civil bill of 1S96 appro
priated | u,000,000 to pay sugar producers a
bounty at eight-tenths of a cent per pound.
In the dlspodltloj of that appropriation It
was found that 11,000.000 was lacking to pay
the entire amount which the government had
obligated Itself to pay. Efforts arc now beIng -
Ing made to eccure an amendment to the
sundry civil or general deficiency bill cover
ing the amount necessary to liquidate the In
debtedness which the government has as
sumed toward thu sugar producers , Repre
sentative Halncr of Nebraska , who Is In fa
vor of the project , but differing ES to the
bill to which the amendment should be at
tached , Is endeavoring to secure from the
commissioner of Internal revenue a state
ment of the Inability of the government to
pay out , and having done this , it la thought
that congress will pass the necessary amount
to reimburse sugar producers. Mr. Halner
Is anxious to have the amendment attached
to the general deficiency bill , while. Mr. Can
non , chairman of the committed on appro
priations , Is anxious to have the amendment
go In the sundry civil bill , as that bill car
ried the amount appropriated last year.
Judge J. M. Woolworth , who has been In

dates fop the late Judge buddy's place , In

another name for the place. While there was
a meeting of the senate judiciary committee
this morning , nothing was done as far as
Mr. McIIugh's nomination Is concerned.
Nothing will bo dcno until the meeting next

THAT AIIIIITHATIO.V TIIBATY.
I'rpNlilont Clcvclmiil SiMids to Uic Sen
nit * u 3liiN * nf Information.
WASHINGTON , Jan. IS. The president to
day furnished the senate , In response to n
resolution adopted In executive session , with
the correspondence betweea our government
and Great Britain resulting In the general
arbitration treaty now awaiting the approval
of the senate. Nearly all of this correspond
ence has been prevlouoly published In the
newspapers , having been officially given out
cither In acrwer to congressional resolutions
or In the llrltlsb blue book. It appears , how-
aver , that the ultimate coming together of
the twd governments was brought about by
personal Interviews between Secretary Olney
and Sir Julian Pauncefote. No record exists
at the State department of this phase of
the negotiations , but It may bo that some of
the future British blue books will Indicate
Its character by making public Sir Julian's
telegrams to Lord Salisbury.
Sotno of the facts that appear in. the cor
respondence that wcs submitted today are
that the late Secretary Gresham In the
spring of 1895 Initiated the correspondence
with Great Britain looking to a general ar
bitration treaty , but for some reason Its dis
cussion was dropped for a time. It was re
vived rather unexpectedly a year later , anfl
this time by Lord Salisbury , who , having
been approached by Mr. Dayard with a re
quest for a settlement of the Venezuelan
boundary dispute , accepted ItU suggestion ,
but accompanied his acceptance with an in
struction to Sir Julian Pauncefote to reopen
negotiations In Washington for a general
Indeed , the Urltlsh premier went so far
In his first note on this subject on March
lj last as to submit a rough draft on the
heads of thu treaty which formed the basla
for the treaty now before the senate. On
April IS on behalf of the United States the
president welcomed these proposals of her
majesty's prime minister with the keenest
appreciation of their value , and from that
point on the negotiations thus started pro
ceeded with an evident disposition on both
slues to come together.

WASHINGTON , Jan. IS. The president today -
day sent to the house the report of the deep
waterways commission , consisting of Presi
dent Angell of the University of Michigan.
John F. Russell and Lyman E. Coolcy , which
was appointed In 1SU5 , under a resolution
Introduced by Senator Vllas of Wisconsin
for a preliminary Inquiry as to the prac
ticability of waterways between the ocean
and the great lakes. The report slates that
the plan Is entirely feasible.
Starting from the heads of Lakes Michi
gan and Superior , the moso eligible route , the
commission believes , Is through the several
great lakes and their intermediate chan
nels , nnd the proposed Niagara ship canal
( Tonawamla to Olcutt ) , to Lake Ontario ,
and that the Canadian seaboard may be
reached from Lake Ontario by way of the
St. Lawrence river and the American sea
board may be reached from Lake Ontario
by way of the St. Lawrence and Like Champlain -
plain and the Hudson river , or by way of
the Oswego-Oncld-Mohawk valley and the
The commission finds that It Is practicable
to develop the work In pcparato sections ,
and the several sections In part by degrees ,
cash step having Its economic justification ;
that the benefits rhould follow closely on the
expenditures , without awaiting the comple
tion of the system as a whole.
It Is fitatcd , however , that the completion
of the entire eystem as quickly as , proper
projects can bo matured and economically
executed la fully justified. The report
recommends that the Niagara Ship canal
should be first undertaken , and Incidentally
the broadening nnd further deepening of
the Intermediate channel of the lakes , the
same being tn the logical order of develop
ment , nnd also requiring the least tlmo for
The commission adds : "In view of the
International character and relation of a part
at least of the works that will be required
ninl nf rlnnrlnn Intercuts Involved. It sccma
expedient to make the examinations and
projects and carry on the works through a
commission that may bo possessed with lim
ited International functions. "
It Is urged that early action be token to
the end that complete surveys and examina
tions bo made and all needful data to mature
the projects be provided.
The complete surveys and Investigations ,
with measurements of the outflow of the sev
eral streams and the full Investigation of
collateral questions wl\l \ 'b&t not leas than
$000,000 and require some years of time.
The report gives many statistics relating
to the tralllc on the grdat lakes. It iiays the
agricultural competition * this country has re
cently had to meet with India and which
la likely to be Intensified , Impels the gov
ernment to take- steps 'to cheapen freight
rates ; that the limit of reduction In railroad
rates hns been reached 'and attention must
bo directed to waterways. In referring to
wheat , the commission .expresses fear of the
consequencca of the lucrea'slng competition
from the Argentine Republic and Uruguay.

Uoforo proceeding wltpi tljo canal bill sev
eral pending matters werpdlsposed of ,
A message from the. urpaldent was read
submitting a report of'Uiarboard appointed
to Investigate and rcn6rt7pn the feasibility
of a deep water route from the Great Lakes
to the Atlantic.
The senate bill was passed for an examina
tion and survey of a water route from the
mouth of the jetties of the city of Galveatali ,
Tex , , through the ship channel and up Iluf-
faln bayou to the city of Houston , Tex ,
Mr. Gordon , democrat of Georgia , gave no
tice that the resolution 'of respect to the late
ex-Speaker Crisp would bo called up at 3 p.
m. next Thursday ,
Mr. Morgan then addressed tlio senate In
favor nf the Nlcaragtmn bill. Ho npoko of
thu supreme Importance of Urn propceeil
waterway to thu United States. In estimat
ing the coat of the work , the oU-Uaclcw to bo
overcome and the advantages to ho secured ,
Mr , Morgan compared the project with thu
Suez canal , the Sault Ste. Marie canal and
thu Chicago drainage canal , blnco the build
ing of thu Suez the coat of canal construc
tion haa ln.'civ reduced one-half through
American Invention ,
The senator reviewed tlio course of Eng
land In securing control of the Sun * canal
after French nnd Egyptian money had built
It. It the commerce of the proposed Nlcnr-
agnail canal was but half ot the SUM canal ,
on tliei Imals ot $1.CO a ton agalnnt the Suez
canal rate of $1.87 per ton , there would bo
a largo financial profit to the United Statra.
The senator did not disparage thla prospect
of enormous earnings on a comparatively
Hiuall Investment , yet ho felt that without
money returns the canal would be Justified
for the great bcneflta It would bring tn the
commercial and agricultural Interests , as
well as for the strategic nd naval advan
tages It would afford the- United States.
Mr. Morgan said the treaty rights of Great
Hrltnln were precisely the same as the
United States with Nicaragua , so wo enjoy
nn exclusive privilege. It was only through
the concession secured by enterprising citi
zens that the United States could hope to
make the canal an American Institution. If
cnngrasa failed to avail itself of this private
concession It would sacrifice Its only hope
to carry out the great doctrine that the
canal should bo an American concern.
Mr. Morgat < here referred Incidentally to
the new Anglo-American peace treaty. It
related , ho said , to differences which might
artac between the United States and Great
Urltaln. "Uut what nre these dlffcroncca ? "
Mked Mr , Morgan. "Iwant to know what
these differences are before wo sign , our
names to the agreement. I want to know
whether It Interferes with our right to build
an American canal In Nicaragua. If there-
Is n dlffe'rcnco which Involves the great doc
trine that the canal Is to he an American
concern It should bo known. Is the Monroe
doctrine a difference , which 1s tu be settled
by the Judgment of King Oscar or by the
strong right arm of the United States ? "
Thcjo questions , Mr. Morgan said , Indi
cated a need ot acting ; upon this Nicaragua
ranal bill at once. Ho wanted to sec what
Great Urltaln would do after congress passed
this bill , and then ho would know what dif
ferences existed. The senator declared there
was "not ono speck of dust" on this propo
sition ; It was clean and free from every
semblance ot a job. He closed with a glow
ing picture of the great results to flow from
the construction of the canal.
At 4MB p. m. the senate wont Into execu
tive at&slon and soon after adjourned.

NEWPORT , Ky. , Jan. IS. The First Na
tional bank of this city closed Its doors
thlo morning. Heavy Investments In real
estate In this city Is ald to be the cause.
The failure of the First National Hank of
Kentucky to open Its doors this morning was
a great surprise to the business men of the
city. Whllo a statement was given out by
the olllcers that no ono would lose anything
there were all sorts of rumors flying about.
Fortunately the Integrity of the olllcers Is
such that no suggestion of wrongdoing has
found credence. The first evidence of weak
ness was the refusal of the olllcero to pay
on Saturday afternoon $5,000 to the treasurer
of the Ilellcvue school board , which he hud
jjut recently deposited and which lie had
been advised he ought to get out. This was
not made public till today. Cashier T. n.

dent Trapp , who was elected last week in
place of Dr. Henry Gunkel , who retired on
account of advanced years , is a resident ot
Lexington , Ky. , and Is outof the wealthiest
men In tlio county.
It Is learned now that the directors were
In session all day last Saturday , on which day
the bank opened with only ? 7,500 In Its
vaults. At that time It was known the bank
could not open Its doors today. At that meet
ing Cashier Youtzey resigned , and his
resignation was promptly accepted. The
bank In Covlngton agreed on Saturday after
noon to loan the bank $00,000. but later the
proposition wao declared off. Congressman
Ilcrry , who holds $75,000 of the stock , made
special appeals , but all rails for help were In
vain. The dlrcctow , H. O. Gunkel , John
Grlese , J. B. McCrackcn , George Youtzoy ,
