(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. April 20. (Special.) The
agricultural experiment atation of the Uni
versity of Nebraska has Issued a bulletin
detailing experiences and rssults of ex
periments with alfalfa. During the winter
Just past a list of between 600 and TOO names
of successful alfalfa raisers wss collected
and to each person waa sent a report blank
calling for a definite statement regarding
the processes he employed In obtaining his
stand and of his subsequent care of the
crop. There were 288 stands reported upon
upland and 273 upon bottom land. Even
In the western portion of the atate the
amount of alfalfa on the upland Is shown to
be considerable and satlsfsctory results are
evidently obtained, although naturally the
yield of hay la smsller than on the bottom
landa of that region.
In the eastern part of the state aomewbat
heavier yields appear to be obtained from
bottom land, but loss from winter killing or
other cause Is grester. Twenty-three re
ports state that upland la more satisfactory
than bottom land. Theaa come principally
from the eastern portion of the stats or the
Irrigated land of the weetern portion.
An astonishing feature of the replies Is
the large amount of alfalfa that they show
to be growing on land with a clay subsoil.
Sandy clay, clay loam, clay and lime, etc.,
were not counted as clay. In spite of this
limitation, 246 clay or gumbo subsoils are
reported. A clay or even a gumbo subsoil
does not appear to be a barrier to success
ful alfalfa culture.
Method of Preparlaa; Soil.
The aeed bed was prepared by plowing
and further working In 373 cases and by
disking or cultivating In seventy-five.
Among the latter la one method that ap
pears to be popular and satlsfsctory. This
consists In thoroughly disking corn land
after all trash has been removed from the
field. In the western part of the state
there aro a number of good stands of al
falfa obtalnsd by breaking prairie sod, disk
ing It and harrowing In the aeed; also by
disking the unbroken sod knd harrowing
In the aeed. The latter commends Itself as
an easy way of supplementing the native
grasses in pastures. The tendency to dis
pense with plowing on unlrrlgated land In
creases with the distance westward from
A study of the dates of aowlng alfalfa
seed In the spring shows a range from early
March to late June, although where advice
waa volunteered It was practically unani
mous In favor of early aowlng. There were
only eight reports of summer qr fall eow-
ng, of which one waa sown In July, four in
August and three In September.
In 108 cases a nurse crop waa used, while
In 393 cases the alfalfa seed was sown with
out any ether crop. The use of the nurss
crop was Isrgely confined to extreme east
ern Nebraska and the irrigated land ef
the west. Many persons who used a nurse
erop say that they would not do ao again.
It haa been recommended to uae a light
eeedlng of small grain, sown earlier or with
alfalfa, to prevent damage by severe winds.
When sown In this way ths nurse crop Is
mown when eight or ten Inches high, to
prevent It smothering the alfalfa.
In flfty-flve caaes the seed was put In
with a drill and In 447 cases It was
sown broadcast. This Is at leaat an in
dication that If a drill la not available a
satlBfsotory stand can be (retained by
broadcasting and harrowing In, provided
the other conditions are favorable.
Amoaat of teed Per Ato.
There were 138 reports of less than
twenty pounds of seed per acre being used.
and 336 reports of twenty pounds or more
being sown. The evidence seems to be in
favor of the uss of at least twenty pounds
of seed per acre.
Of the persons replying to the Inquiries
221 have stands of alfalfa that yield mors
than four tons of oured hay per acre each
season, while- 16T do not get as much as
four tons of hay per acre.
Of peraona having practiced disking al
falfa In the spring or at other times, 138
report that beneficial results have been
obtained, while seven report that disking
has been Ineffective or Injurious. By disk
ing alfalfa la meant going over It In the
spring with a disk harrow before growth
starts, or during summer immediately after
cutting for hay. It la customary to set
the disks at a slight angle.. This cuts the
crown root and atlra the soil. Some of the
oorrespondsota prefer barrewlpg to disking.
Where positive objection was made to disk
ing. It was bsssd on the claim that It
eaussd the crowns to beeome dlseassd. The
great bulk of the evidence waa, however.
In favor of disking.
Of the persona who have manured alfalfa
either by plowing In the manure Imme
diately before eeedlng or by spreading It on
the field after a stand bad been obtained,
110 obtained beneficial results, and thirteen
found It to be Ineffective or Injurious.

In Washington, presumably looking out for
the interests of the San Francisco opium
agents, as two of the men who hsve been
haunting the committee rooms, asking for
information regarding the bill mentioned,
are known to be from that city and i i all
probability, these men will use every effort
to defeat the bill. Both Senator MaBon
and Representative Blakeney declare that It

scarcely require more than five minutes of
Representative Orosvenor of Ohio Is mak

In its effects aa It will restrict and regulate,
by limiting tho meaning of the word con

and the making of such an agreement or

will be enjolnable the same as now. The
advocatea of the bill say Ita enactment
will give assurance to laboring men; that
they will not be subjected to Injur-nions
and restraining orders and contemp. pro

is no longer to be "considered as In re
straint of trade or commerce," and third.
'nor ahall any restraining order or Injunc
tion be Issued with relation thereto." The
committee on the Judiciary has reported
ths bill to the house with a strong recom
mendation that It be passed.
w BaHdlng to Re Costly.
The proposed state. Judicial and execu
tive building will be one of the most costly
federal buildings in Washington. According
to present plans it will cost almost $7,004,
000 exclusive of site, and It will surprise
no one If the limit la raised from time to
time In course of its construction until
the aggregate appropriation far exceeda
that amount. The alte selected Is the
square on Pennsylvania avenue opposite the
State, War and Navy building and one of
the finest In the city for a government
building. The bill authorizing the con
struction of the new building was intro
duced early thla session of congress, but
it was not reported to tbe senate from the
committee on public buildings and grounds
until laat Saturday. The delay of the com
mittee In reporting it was caused by an
uncertainty, as to whether offices for the
president should be provided. As reported
to the senate, it not only makea provision
for executive offices, but for the holding of
large official receptions by ths president
that would overtax the White House.
The White House was constructed and oc
cupied In November 1800. It was rebuilt
In 1829. When first occupied the country
had a population of 6,250,000. The fact
that 100 yeara have elapsed and that the
population Is approximately fifteen times as
great would seem to sfford argument for
giving to the president additional accom
modations. The subject of enlarging the
White House or providing space elsewhere
in the vicinity for the force of clerks and
an office for the president In which he
might transact his official business, reserv
ing to his family and himself some meas
ure of domestic privacy, has been a sub
ject of official recommendation from time
By providing for the State department In
the new building tbe War and Navy de
partments will be enabled to occupy to good
advantage the space thus to be vacated.
The secretary of war recentl sent to the
senate committee a letter which directs at
tention to the over-crowded condition of tbe

The Independence of President Roosevelt
In tho- making of federal appolntmenta con
tinues a subjsct of comment among mem
bers of congress. From the beginning of
his administration Mr. Roosevelt has se
lected his appointees In accordance with
his own views aa to their qualifications and
with a spirit of indifference as to whether
they were or were not favored by the sena
tors from their respective states. Ths
president's most recent msnlfestations of
this tndlfferencs was in the case of Eugene
F. Ware of Kansas, whom he selected as
the successor of H. Clay Xvavs, commis
sioner of pensions. Mr. Roosevelt did not
consult ths republican senator from Kan
sas, Mr. Burton, and then appoint ,Ware.
Inatead, ha appointed Ware and then con
sulted Mr. Burton, much to the chagrin of
the aenator. Ware's name bad not been
mentioned for the commissionershlp and
when the announcement that he would be
appointed reached Mr. Burton the latter
was amaxsd. Burton, who Is a new sena
tor, has very extravagant Ideaa of the
ssnatorial prsrogattve In tbe distribution ef
federal patronage. That the president should
appoint a Kanaaa republican to ths com
missionershlp of pensions, by far tbs most
Important federal position that haa gone to
the etate, without so much aa even Intimat
ing that he Intended to do so. was a sur
prise and a shock from which ths senator
haa not yst recovered. He acquiesced with
as much grace as possibla, however, and
will not oppoae tbe confirmation of Mr.
Ware's nomination when It comes before
the aenate. Tbe president haa also failsd
to consult other senatora In the selection
of officials and la some Instsnces his
thoughtlessness haa created displeasure
which threatened complications, but which
ended by the statesmen at the capitol swal
lowing their wrath and falling In with the

SECOND GOES TO THE SAINTS
Omaha Loses Sunday Game to St. Joseph's"
CONTEST FULL OF FUN AND GINGER
Bar. Hits. Rrrors and Brlaht Plays
Mlaale In Profaslon and tireat
t rind Is Immensely
Before a crowd of 4,000 people at Vinton
Street park, Sunday afternoon, the Saints
from the south out-errored the Rourke
Rangers, but they aleo outgeneraled and
outbatted them, so the visitors won at once
victory and vindication by a score of 7 to
6, the breathless defeat of Saturday being
From go to gone the game waa one of in
tense interest, despite the errors thst
checkered its career. This can be under
stood when it Is noted that the score shows
a double shutout In the first, a tie in tbs
second, a tie In the third, a lead for St.
Joseph In the fourth, a lead for Omaha In
the fifth, a double shutout In the sixth, a
lead for St. Joseph in the seventh, more
scores for the visitors In the eighth, and
strenuous attempts by Omaha in ths ninth
to save tbe day, resulting in a sensational
home run and two scores, but falling short
of the required salvation by aa many more.
Little Peter Burg waa there with hla two
hits, as usual, one a three-bagger, but he
demonstrated more clearly than ever that
he is not fast enough or sufficiently ex
perienced to pUy an outfield for "Pa's
Pets" up to the standard set by the other
two garden guards or by the Inner circle
habitues. All three of the triple bits which
are credited to the Saints landed in his
territory, and a Oenine would surely have
landed at least two of them, while Peter
also let Ball to first In the seventh by miss
ing bis fly, which be could easily have
csught and held bad he started for it
Taking those features Into consideration,
Owen threw a great game for Omaha, and
was not In any sense responsible for the
defeat. Thomaa cinched the Job aa perm
anent aecond catcher when he batted for

BLAIR, Neb., April 20. (Special Tele

D. Haller and the newly elected city coun
cil were Installed Into office and strict or
ders were given to the police laat night to
enforce every ordinance of the city, and
especially those pertaining to Sunday clos
ing of the saloons and gambling rooms.
This Is the result of the fight made upon
Mr. Haller'a re-election ss mayor, the Sun
day closing of the Baloons and gambling
rooms being the main Issue brought against
him by a majority of the saloon men. The
only thing on tap today is soda water, even
tho public drinking fountains not being
turned on until noon. This Is tbe first
strictly dry Sunday that Blair has experi
enced for a number of years, and many
calls were turned In at the drug stores
for alcohol and bottled appetizers, which
were promptly turned down. It Is reported
that aeveral fishing parties were abandoned
for want of snake bite medicine. Those In
terested still smile, however, and claim that
It Is only a spurt of the new administration,
but Mayor Haller has signified his deter
mination to have his orders enforced or
change his police force. Seven of tbe sa
loon now In operation will not apply for
license for the coming; year.
