hero a few nights ago the speaker madi
the misleading statement that the repub

spend a large amount a ! money to elect Its
candldato this fall. Mr. nurkett declared
this was iiboslutely untrue and so convinced
his hearers. Ho concluded his address by
warning the- young men who cast their firs
vote this fall to ponder well this Importan
matter and start right by voting to cndorsi
the administration of a man that they wll
be as proud of In after years as the eli
veterans now are who cast their first b\l
lots for Abraham Lincoln.

LINCOLN , Sept. 21. ( Special. ) The
members of the popocratlc party who are en
deavoring tw prove by a distortion of figures
that the present state ofllclals are doing
wonderful ( things for the state and who re
ject with scorn any suggestion that cither
the national administration or the good
crops have any bearing on the showing they
make could disprove their own assertions

amount of money received from the in
terest and Icafe of school lands. They could ,
ot ] the other hatiU , prove that providence
works hand In hand with t'ho republican
party , or nt least that through some medium
the people are prosperous only when tha
reins of the natlonar government are In
the hands of republicans.
The figures below are taken from the rec
ords In the cilice of state superintendent )
of schools and show the amounts derived
ram the lease of school lands and the In-
crest on unpaid principal on school lands

In this table , the last year of the first
Cleveland administration , the four years of

t will be noted that there was n substantial
ncreaso in 1SS9 , which was Harrison's first

until the democrats again took charge of
national affair : . . Thus the amount of lease
money received by the state shows as fol-
This shows a considerable difference In
'avor ' of the republican period. The decrease
during the Cleveland period Is no less
marked In respect to the Interest received

Difference In favor rep. perlod.$13,9D0.62
Although the popocrats in their circulars
do not hesitate to make unfair comparisons ,
hey would cry out loudly against any com
parison between the receipts during the last
year under Cleveland's first term and the |
first year under McKlnley. This would show-
is follows :

The Nebraska people who pay lease and
nterest money on school lands may not owe
all their property to the national republican
administration , but the popocrats will hove
o do some tall figuring to prove that the
present state officers are themselves creating
, ho prosperous conditions.

HEARD ABOUT TOWN.
Deeds of daring that Involve risk of life
ire always fraught with attractions for
he crowd , and this morning when a painter
caled the Hag pole above the Continental
-lock - to a height of 160 feet and suspended
n mid air , calmly glided the round pole
op and repainted the pole , he was watched
iy several thousand people on the streets
The Continental block Is four stories high
On the corner of the building Is n clock
ewer and above this reaches a flag pole
measuring twenty-five feet. It Is not larger
around than a man's arm and on its top
la a gilded ball. .
The top of the tower was reached from
ho roof by means of n ladder ; then began
ho climb Into mld-atr that attracted a
rowd which filled the ttreets for blocks.
There Is a pulley Just beneath the gilded
ball nt the top of the pole and through the
ulley runs the halyardc used to hoist the
Hag. It was by means of this contrivance
hat the painter made the ascent. A swing
mil foot rests of rope were improvised , and
ivhcn these were nadc fast to the halyards
he painter slowly pulled himself Into Hie
air. A paint can and brushes were tied 1o
ils wnlst and for more than on hour he
worked while with every gust of wind the
nole swayed and swung like a willow reed
n n storm. It wan risky work and the elc-
iient of danger for the workman held the
ntereat of the crowd.
E. S. Ilrooks , n leturned Klondlker , was
at the exposition yesterday. His home Is
n Denver , but he came down hero to see the
big show and hear the tales that are being
old of the gold that Is being dug out of
ho tranBtnlsslsslppl country by raising |
rult , agricultural ptoducts and live stock.
lu was amazed and It Is more than likely
hat he will locate a claim rather than go
back to the frozen north.
Speaking of the Klondike region Mr.
Irooks slid : "All told there has not been
more than $6,000,000 in gold token out dur-
ng thot past season. The people are dc-
Iberatel'y robbed by the Canadian govern
ment. To secure this amount of gold tfie
miners had to pay $00,000 for certificates
of location and $351,783 In royalties.
"Thero Is nothing for the people to do
n the Klonodlke. Of course there Is work ,
but not more than one out of every 300
men can get employment. There are no
. new discoveries being made and not n claim
has been located during the past six months

by the transportation companies that arc
anxious to carry people and thus pay for
their boats that they have put on the ocean

C. O. McCarthy of DCS Molnes , who \f \
now serving his sixth year as state auditor
for Iowa , returned home last evening from
the Iowa day celebration at the exposition ,
Mr. McCarthy has made three visits to tbu
exposition and promises to come again next
month during the Peace Jubilee and bring
Mrs. McCarthy with him. He says the ex
position Is a wonderful enterprise and re
flects great credit upon the city , and that
of all the people he had seen who had been
here to visit the show he has yet to find
the lir.it one to speak of It in any other
manner than of praise. "Mr. McCarthy
hoped to bring his FOII out to see the expo
sition but the young man Is a midshipman
In the navy and sent word a few days ago
that he hadd been assigned to the battle
ship Iowa and would not be able to make
the expected visit at this time. He has
heretofore been on the. battleship Massa-
chuaetts and was through oil of the Spanish
war. He graduated from Annapolis in 1897.
Senator Allen Is not much of a club man.
This conclusion Is reached through the fact
that ho has shown that with all his visits
to Omaha It was not until Tuesday night ho
became Impressed with the knowledge that
there was n club room here other than the
Commercial club. He was Invited to attend
the banquet given to the Iowa Exposition
commission that evening and put the In
vitation in his pocket without being Im
pressed with anything particularly except
the date. Tuesday evening came around , as
It is wont to do , and at the proper time
the senator began pushing himself toward
the banquet hall. lie went to the Board of
Trade building and pushing the bell for the
elevator boy seated himself upon a settee
and awaited results. He found after a
while that the elevator was not run
ning and , wondering that such should be
the case with a big banquet on hand , he
began to lift himself up the stairs. The
ncnator Is not built for climbing stairs and
after ascending five flights of long , hard
steps ho found his further progress blocked
by an Iron gate , which was locked on the
upper side. Then the senator descended ,
counting the steps as he went , and wonderIng -
Ing what sort of o trick had been played
upon htm. When ho reached a light
pulled out the Invitation which he had so
carelessly read and found that the ban
quet was at the Omaha club.
