Tho regult of Secretary Wilson's
tIbH of Inspection at the 8oath Omaha
pncklng houses, finding them "In good
rendition," as he expressed It at the
conclusion, Is not at all surprising to
ell who understand Itfe CondltioDg. At
no tlm bis there been any Official or
other ciitlclam of the packing methods
and situation In general here. The
disclosure which caused such" a" sensa
tion during the late session of congress
related to unsanitary- conditions and
offensive practices In some of th es
tablishments grouped around the Chi
cago stock yards.
A sharply contrasting situation has
11 the time existed In the meat Indus
tries of South Omaha, where the plants
are of newer construction and were
provided with all the modern means of
cleanliness, convenience and sanitation.
Doubtless the requirements of the
amended inspection law have called
even here for some changes,' which
have been" promptly made, but they
have been comparatively few and slight
because of the original satisfactory
state of affairs.
Nevertheless the secretary's approval
after examination Is Important as an
official Indorsement, and as a' conclu
sive guarantee to the public,' whose
sensibilities have been recently sub
jected to severe shock by so many sen-
aatlonal and Indiscriminate rumors af
fecting the meat. supply In general. -.
THE BRTAX SULLtrAN KMBBOQIitO.
ft would seem that the "Majority
Rule club." under which designation
the anti-Sullivan coterie in Illinois has
been operating since tb.ey were thrown
out of the St. Louis convention In spite
of Mr. Bryan's championshipshould be
satisfied with the vote, of 1,03 8 to. 570
by which his demand that" the1 demo
cratic .national r committeeman be
ousted was rejected In, "the-state con
vention.' The action of - the . Illinois
democracy was deliberate, "for Mr.
Bryan's "demand for SuUivan'B retire
ment wag formally and unequivocally
made seyeral'weeks ago,, and -when re
fused the issue was explicitly presented
to the party, to force the latter" out.
with the 'added notice--that 'thai. Ne
braska statesman did not want the con
vention's indorsement unless it also re
pudiated Sullivan. .
The answer by such an overwhelm
ing majority Is a signal certification
that the democratic party of Illinois at
least, while at .this Juncture two' years
ahead Of the national convention con
siders It good politics to toss a verbal
bouquet In Mr. Bryan's direction'; does
not want and will not tolerate his at
tempted crarlsm in their affairs. It la
an ominous note of Independence that
s thus sounded aa the chorus is taking
its place for the reception performance.

firmed the credentials of Its national
committeeman, It will be curious to ob

membership. Nor Is it : apparent on
what excuse the" aspirant, having' as
sumed to dictate to the party in 1111
nois, can refuse to Interfere when In
like manner appealed to by- factional
favorites in the other states. Under
the circumstances the Illinois -Prece,-.
dent, rudely defying the. Bryan form pf
imperialism, cannot but be, regarded
as peculiarly awkward at this Juncture.
CROPS AXD PROSPERITY. . ,
The waning days of summer- find
Nebraska's small grain harvest ended
and one of the most bountiful" yields
ever recorded Is now being stored in
granaries ready for the market. Such 6f
the wheat crop as has already been
marketed has graded unusually high',
and the promise of that now held 'in
tne farmers bands is such as warrants
the conclusion that no ; -former "Crop
brought -to the state the money that
will be paid for this one. The outlook
for King Corn Was never better than
It is today. Timely rains throughout
the growing season brought -this, great
Nebraska crop to its fullest maturity,
while the hot weather of midsummer
days nave provided, the necessary con
ditions for the ripening of the corn
It' has been the general expression of
men familiar with the state from its
very foundation that never in the his
tory of Nebraska was the promise of
the corn crop so exceedingly encourag
ing. The fields show the best stand
ever noted, and It seems now that the
corn is beyond any possibility of dam
age from weather conditions.
With this outlook tor the continued
prosperity of the farmer, ' the mer
chants and manufacturers of the state
see also signs-of continued activity in
their several lines. Nebraska's history
for the last decade, at least, has been
cne of steady advance In all material
ways, and the continuation - of these
conditions is assured by the crop of Ithe
present year. As a natural outcome of
this condition the several cities and
towns of the state', are showing great
improvement. . Building , operations
everywhere have been and are being
carried on on extensive lines." In "many
localities It has been found difficult to
build even for present demands, so
general has been the increase in the
business to oe done. Jn Omaha, for
example,' present demands require all
the added storeroom provided by the
immense amount of money that has
been invested in nw buildings during
the past two years, and It can be truth
fully aald that none of these have
really been bullded for the future
Building operations locally have been
hampered to a great txten by lack of
material , and I tick ot men to handle
the material when It Is supplied. This
means but one thing, and that Is
continuation through at least one more
season, because ot the impossibility of
completing during the present year
projects already under way. , This,
with a demand that will naturally
arise, Indicates to a certainty that the
building activity In Omaha will be con
tinued indefinitely. What Is true of
Omaha In this regard Is true, la a gen
eral way, of 'the whole state of Ne
braska. The farmers of Nebraska are tilling
their ground with greater effort and
more Intelligence than ever before, and
the result Is seen in the Increased yield
of all sorts of crops These conditions
mean the prosperity of the state and
that Nebraska will continue In the fu
ture, as it has been" for years In the
past, one of the greatest wealth pro
ducers In the great sisterhood of eom-monwealtha.-
Authenticated reports, although full
details are still lacking, make sure that
a fearful -earthquake and fire disaster
has befallen Valparaiso and the cities

Isolation of the scene caused exaggera
tion' In the first vague" rumors, but tho
loss Is overwhelming to the stricken
egion. In the light of the latest news
there Is only too much reason, to fear
that In proportion to total population
and property the destruction approxi
mates . the . San Francisco catastrophe.
The two cases present many analogies,
not only in the combined terrors of
shock and fire, but also in the scenes
and suffering that followed.
There can be no doubt that the Val
paraiso disaster will likewise call forth
the sympathy-and aid "of the civilized
world to supplement the prompt action
of home government and . private be
nevolence. To no people' should the sit
uation appeal 'more Intimately than to
our own who have so recently had
cause to know to their sorrow' the full
ness of Its meaning. And especially at
this time, when we are putting forth
extraordinary effort to win the confi
dence and good will of the South
American republics, such deeds of gen
uine helpfulness would go far to vital
ize our professions of friendship.
"TUB PUBLIC III THE MARKET.
There are signs that "the public" Is
n.ovlng In force into the stock market,
where prices all along the line are Ha
ng since the sensational dividend de
nouement In Union Pacific and South
ern Pacific late last week. It is well
known that for months speculation has
been distinctly what Is called a
'traders' market," from which the
great mass of ' nonprofessional oper
ators or possessors of funds all over
the country hold aloof, or In . which
they dip only gingerly and occasion
ally. But the tremendous Impulse
given to the market Is a temptation to
those who have been quiescent to enter
It actively and boldly.
Thus is once more created the famil
iar condition in which the leading spir
its In speculation quietly,' and deliber-
ateiy unload upon-, the. -public!, at
traordlnary high, price level, taking to
themselves" Vast profits. 'So far as rail
road stocks are concerned the unprece
dented crops to be carried encourage
expectations of great earnings, sym
pathetically boosting other securities,
and in the rush the public is likely to
stop at no extravagance, of antici

Mr. Bryan, with the facility he has re
cently developed for turning sharp cor
ners, may be able by the time the first
roll call is '.reached to see his way
clear to accepting the vote of Illinois,
even with the Sullivan attachment. It
would be deucedly awkward if the
unanimous nomination .wer to be
marred b the Inability of Illinois dem
oc.-ata to register-their choice simply
because they also have a choice In con
nection with their home affairs.
If the city council moves in the ice
natter with the celerity that has
marked its course in dealing with
other important matters submitted for
Its consideration, the-proposed ordi
nance regulating the trade will be
likely to be passed about the time next
season's crop Is harvested. If the
present body is noted for anything, it
Is the success with which It has evaded
any effort to secure from it relief- for
the people promised In its platform. .

feet In her stocking, led Detective Sergeant
Bonine of Hoboken, N. J., a chase over
roofs Thursday night and was not captured
until four alleys had been hurdled. When
caught ahe fought until she reached the
street. Tonetta Blraonsen, a sister of the
prisoner, complained that Toblna had taken
her bank book and drawn from tbe bank
all hef money. They had lived together In
1483 Amsterdam avenue, Hoboken. Toblna
would make no statement.
A bag containing $60 In nickels fell off a
dray enroute from the United Statea sub
treasury to one of the banks' the other day,
scattering coins In every, direction. The
street waa crowded and tber waa a gen

But when a sub-treasury official, together
with a cop, requeated that the money be
returned, explaining that It waa govern

PROSPKRITY III THE WEST.
Pointed Evidence In the Dividends of
the t'nlon FneMe.
Chicago Inter Ooean.
The whole country awoke yesterday
morning' to learn that large fortunes had
been made by many persons In Wall street
on Friday by speculation In shares of th
Union Paclflo railway.
Outside of the financial maelstrom of the
country probably few persons were Inter
ested In the published facts, larg aa they
seem to men who follow the vagaries of
the stock market. But behind the facta on
the surface are a good, many other facts
to which all the people of the United States
may well give, attention.
Fortunes were made In Union Pacific
speculation because prices of tha shares
went up. Prices of the shares went up
because the dividends were enormously In.
creased. The dividends were enormously
Increased because the railway had earned
Finally, the railway had earned tremen
dous profits because the west, the wide
west, the golden west, had been loading
the Union Pacific ears with an ever in
creasing amount of Its products that they
might be taken forth and distributed to all
parts of the world.
In a word, the flurry In Wall street and
the harvesting of a million or two of sud
den profits here and there, by this, that or
the other speculator, waa not a fly speck
on the great situation which thua waa
brought before the -eyes of the American
, The enormous fact, the overwhelming
fact, of this situation was the colossal
wealth of the west, on which but a (toy
percentage had enabled this one railway
to pay such great profits' to its owners,
even after numerous deductions for other

NATIONAL IRRIGATION CONGRESS.
Matters to Be Considered at the Idaho
New York Tlrbune.
Great Interest attaches to the fourteenth
National Irrigation congress, which will be
held at Boise, Idaho, September I to I
The tremendous, growth of the Irrigation
movement since the passage of the reclama
tion act In 1903 gives the subject to be dis
cussed an Importance which could not
have been foreseen four years ago.
This act provides that all moneys re
ceived from the sale of public landa in the
atatea and territories west of the Missouri
river. Including Oklahoma (except the fees
And commissions due registers and receivers
and the 5 per cent set aside for educational
and .other purposes), shall be a special fund
to be used in the examination and survey
and maintenance of Irrigation works for
the reclamation of arid and semi-arid lands
in thoee states and territories. Thirty mil.
lion dollars has been thus accumulated,
and plans for the Irrigation of nearly 2,000,
000 acre hav been completed. It la esti
mated that the total amount of land which
can be thus benefited Is 100,000,000 acres, of
which nearly 10,000.000 acres are under cul
tivation. The completion of the work which
the reclamation service aspires to accom
plish, with some aid from. private enttr
prise, will. It la hoped, Increaae the national
wealth 35,000,000,000. Bona fide settlers In
the Irrigated regions pay for the uae of
the water In ten annual Installmente. the
price varying In proportion to the difficulty
of construction and the amount of water
Boise Is well situated for the scene of de
liberations on Irrigation questions. Idaho
furnishes object lessons In the work of the
reclamation service hardly to be matched
elsewhere In the country. Including the de
velopment of the Shoahon falls power,
which, when completed, will produce more
electrical unlta than Niagara now does,
and the Twin falls project, where water
was turned on a little more than a year
ago, and -where In 100 days reapers wore
