the Horlit.
The Bee has pleasure In announcing that
In Ita Issue of January 14 will art' tha
first of a series of weekly letters from the
pen of William Jennings Bryan, who In
now making; a tour of the world.
Mr. Bryan crossed the Pacific to Japan,
stopping a dny at Honolulu en route, and
hna already conrludod hl visit In Japan.
Corea and China. He te now at the Philip
pine Islands, whence his Itinerary will In
elude India. Palestine. Egypt and the
various countries of Europe. After crossing
the Atlantic and spending a brief time at
home he will sail again from Pan Francisco,
making a special trip to Australia aud
New Zealand.
A better time for Mr. Bryan's tour, from
lie standpoint of the reader, could not
possibly have been chosen. Extraordinary
change are In progress In pearly every
section of the Old World. The oriental
slumber of centuries Is broken; a new
regime dominates the far east; the old
Wea as to the relative strength and im
portance of European and Asiatic nations
has been rudely Jolted, and Caucasian con
tempt for the Monrnllnn has Riven place
to the respect which triumphant might
never fulls to command. How are the
new conditions to afreet the interests of
the t'nlted Plates? How are they afre-ctlng
the Japanese, ciiineMf- nnd Coreans? It will
lie interesting, will 11 not, to have Mr.
Krynn's leisurely taken observation an
swering these (iiicstlons?
atnrtv f the Philippines.
It Is to lie hoped that the Inhabitants
of the Philippine Islands are progressing
rapidly toward civilized conditions and that
American control means a glorious new
birth of light audi liberty and self-control
and Improved material prosperity for the

.Mr. Rryan Is making a careful study of
the conditions and the record will be spread
out In full for the benellt of The Bee's
reader. Recent cable reports from the
Philippines state that Mr. Bryan Is counsel
lug Filipinos who are clamoring for Inde
pendence to yield loyal obedience to the
American government.
Tho great empire of India Is also under
going mighty changes. The leaven of west
ern education and missionary effort Is
breaking down barbarous customs. An rx
traordlnory movement from Hindu! Sill tO
Christianity hna lately become evident. Mr.
ntyan will Investigate also the workings
of the English colonial system there as
compared with our own in the Philippines.
The great Jewish Zionist movement con
templates the reoccupatlon of Palestine by
the Jews. Already many thousands of
Jews Hre settled there. The awful alniighti-r
In Russia has drawn the Jews of all coun
tries closer topethci, ns witnessed by great
demonstrations of sympathy Rnd the giving
of Immense relief sums. All slfctis po'nt
to an Increasing solidarity of this ancient
and retiiiirkatile r.iir. which Is very sig
nificant iu view .if the fact that many
students of Biblical prophecy contend that
the Jews ure to have again 11 national
existence, with a capital at Jerusalem. In
the light of these firts Mr. Bryan's letters
from Palestine will have vastly more than
the Interest ordinarily attaching to cone
spondence fmnv the Holy Lnd.
Egypt, too, as a result of many years'
control by Great Britain, Is rapidly becom
ing 0 modern country. Its progress nnd
new conditions will, nt course, be graph
ically deplete, by Mr. Bryan.

Krnni Egypt Mr. Bryan will go to Kurnpe.
What tho conditions will be in Turkey and
the Balkan states, in Russia, in Austrla
Hungnry and in the countries of western
Kuror when he gets there it Is Impossible
to suy. Russia may be a republic, Poland
may be Independent, the Austro-Hungarian
empire may le dismembered; hut at all
events there is certain to bo no lack of ma

On his arrive! in Toklo ho was entertained
by the leading statesmen of Japan and was
received by the mikado. 1'ndoubtedly a
similar experience awaits him In every cap
ital ha shall visit.
Mr. Bryan witnessed the great naval re
view celebrating the new Anglo-Japanese
alliance, and the monster reception given
Admiral Togo at Toklo.
The letters already In hand from Japan
are literally as full of human Interest as
an egg is full of meat: for be It remembered
Mr. Bryan Is not only one of America's two
foremost public men. but he Is also a news
paper man whose keen faculties of observa
tion Instinctively seixe on and record the
details concerning men, women and chil
dren, surroundings and events which ennie
within the range of every reader's active
Interest. A great deal has been written

anese through Mr. Bryan's eyes and It will
seem as though you are acquiring a most
pleasant and never before reallied famil
iarity with the Land of the P.lslng Sun.
The article to appear January 14 Is the
fruit of a single day's visit at Honolulu.

The re-ports eif the olliccrs of the Conser
vative Ravings and Ixian association for t!te
year 190f, as made to the board of directors
at Its last meeting, show a state of uffnlrs
gratifying to the membership of that asso
ciation from every standpoint.
The net increase In the business of the as
sociation for the year was S:tl9. 1.JS. the
largest one year's growth experienced by
tho association in Its fourteen years of
business. The gross receipts for the year
were $l,tD5.0'3.33. also the largest In the asso
clatlem's history. ,
The net total resources the 31st ult. were
fl.51A.9Wi.44. the highest thus far reached by
any Nebraska association.
The gross earnings for the year were flnl..

to members In payment of dividends at the
rate of it per cent per annum.

Four hundred and sixty-nine new loans i
were made during the year, of which P;7 j
were rnr the erection of new homes in
Omaha and South Omaha. A reduction eif
interest rates on loans was made July 1

On ae count of lack of space and a con- !

western roads show an Interesting table on
the cost of repairs of locomotives, showing
that the cost of repairs, both running and
In shop, is closely preiportlonal to t,he- trac
tive power and therefore to the height on
the drivers.
On the Union pacific In 1!i"4 there were
1:4 engines with an average weight on the
drivers of fifty-eight tons. The cost of
locomotive repairs and renewals jer en
gine mile was 13.R4 cents; per 100-ton miles, .
17.04 cents and per locomotive. t3,'iefi. The
cost of repairs per engine on tho Not them
Pacific was f;.07T. and em the Southern i
Pacific. f3.473. The highest cost for repairs '
per engine was on the Santa Fe, which 1
leached tl.lW per engine. These lines all
use the heaviest locomotives ceintructed
and a comparison with the figures of tha 1
other middle-west lines which do not have
to cross the mountains and which, there
fore, ase lighter engines, shows t fie cost
less. The Milwaukee has 1.011 engines
which cost ror repair and renewals but
fl,4H3, aud the Northwestern owned lust
year 1.307 engines, which cost tier engine
for renewals and repairs, fl,563.40.
