Lincoln for Orders.
THOMPSON AMONG CALLERS
Mttle Clan) la Aaxtoaa for Khallea

Another Term Mayor Jim
Only Stars Away.
. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN'. Jan- 0. (Speclal.)-Uovcrnor
Hhallenberger has established hts right to
the title of "boss" ef Uis democratic party
. of the state. And unto him have come
during the, last few days the erstwhile big;
chief illher to k for quarter or to get
ir.r.trttcUons or to curry favor.
Since his return from Washington the
governor has been besieged with callers of
high and low degree,.. Following his re
fusal to call an extra session of the legisla
ture the aspiring ones who were on the
other side have by their presence In his
office acknowledged their submission to his
edicts, and his utter refusal to be used by
Mr. Bryan to carry out the pet Ideas of the
presidential 'candidate has scared the little
fellows, who tremble at the name of Bryan
Among the callers last week was W. II.
Thompson, tha "Little. Olant." of Grand
Island, who Is a candidate for United
States senator. The "Little Giant" Is not
anxious for the- governor to be the "Giant
Killer," so ho sugKiftts that the governor
try for hlB old Job again and his friends
Insist that a Thompson-flhallenberger com
bination looks good. ' In fact It Is reported
that the "Kittle Gtant"even went so far
as to say but In Hall 'county that tha t
O'clock closing law had been a factor In
the election of democratic county officer.
Then came the change In the date of
the democratic dollar dinner1, which htM
been originally set for February 8. All of
a sudden some one asked if this date suited
the governor,- who was then in Washington.
So the matter was held up In the air until
tha big boss stamped his approval on Feb
ruary it, changing it from the 20th, which
was the second choice of the lieutenants.
. Volpp Has Orlevance.
Senator Fred 'Volpp of Scrlbner was an
other ' caller, who had ' previously been
quoted as ' being for Mayor Dahlman for
governor. '' Volpp, so his friends say, Is
anxious for executive approval of his con
templated announcement ' for state treas
urer. Volpp feels peeved at the way the
party has- treated him. ' In fact it went
square back on a promise 'that had been
made him.' He had 'gone to considerable
trouble to secure a banking bill for Intro
duction into the legislature. Then when
tha committee decided to sidetrack It Volpp
roared as only a man Of his Hts can roar,
so to appease, his Just wrath It was de
cided and made a matter of record that
tha bill when it oame from the oommlttee
was to carry the name "Volpp-Wilton
bill.'' The committee gos Jealous of Volpp
and Wilson and each member had his own
name tanked onto the bill. A11 the satis
faction1 Volpp got was to read seventy-eight
amendments prepared by Arthur Mullen
and given to him by Governor Shallen-berg-er.
Two amendments- which Volpp
himself offered were afterwards defeated
because they had not f h-st bsen O. K'd.

KEARNEY, Keb., Jan. Sft.-Ppeclal.)
About a year ago the registrar of deeds of
Buffalo county received a bogus deed to a
section of land that did not exist In the
cotinty for the purpose of registering it on
the records at the court house. Since that
time there has been about fifteen of these
same fraudulent document received. They
are all from parties living along the south
ern border of Ohio and the northern border
of Kentucky. . In each Instance they de
scribe land that could not be found on the
plat of the county and they are all signed
either by John Berra or John Moore with
an H. B. Emerson as the notary public
One party paid W.000 for a section of land
claimed to be under a government patent,
hen the government has never Issued a
patent on more than one quarter section
at a time.
When the party who has been duped Is
informed that his Instrument is worthless
he invariably wants it returned. Ia some
Instances the land Is traded for property.
On the surface of these actions can be seen
the coarse work of a J. Rufus Walllng

Frank Catnea Takes CVrbollo Acid
After Quarrel with Wife.
CRETE, Nob., Jan. 30. (Special Tele
gram.) Frank Carries committed suicide
last night at 6:30 by taking carbolic acid.
He died within an hour. The suicide was
the result of an unhappy marriage and
followed within a few minutes after a
quarrel between the husband and wife.
The couple were married In Qulncy, 111.,
five years ago and after considerable
quarreling Mrs. Carries leit her. husband
and came to Crete with her parents. After
about a year Carnes wrote to her and
came out to Nebraska -and they made up.
They have been living In Crete ever since,
but their home was very unhappy and the
were unable to get along together. Few
were aware of their quarreling outside of
near relatives, but the .wife's father had
heard Carnes often threaten to kill him
self. It also said he threatened to kill hit
wife several times. . Last nlgbt when
Carnes came home from work he and his
wife had a bitter quarrel and when she
went out to telephone for an offloer he
took the fatal carbollo. acid. When, the
wife came in the house again she heard
her husband in the front room groaning
and crying. She opened the door and found
him lying on the floor, his head near the
stove and in terrible agony and convul
sions. Mrs. Carnes hurried for neighbors
and called a doctor. A few minutes after
help camo he was dead.
Carnos was a fine built, smooth shaved
and good looking fellow, barely 71 years
old. He was a first class painter, but. as
business was slow during the- winter he
was helping in the construction work on
the college science hall. Mrs. Carnes is a
frail little woman, ; only 22 -years old and
pretty. They had been married, five years
and have two children, Roy, ( years-old,
and Leona, a year and a half. old. The
mother of the dead man lives Irv Qulneyv.

peculiar stage.. Milt Erwln, who la alleged
to have named former Alma postmasters,

appointment regardless of other candidates
in the field, and that J. O. Thompson,' a
prominent democratic -attorney and deputy
under the present postmaster, is to take
the stump for Congressman Norrls during
the coming campaign. The republicans are
divided on the question and thus far all
efforts to get the congressman . to state
his position have apparently been in vain.

Tuesday morning the 8outh Dakota Poultry
show will be in full operation in the city
hall building, which makes an ideal place
to hold the exhibition. Entries that have
been received ' In the Barred Plymouth
Rocks indicate that this class will outnum
ber all others at the show. The Barred
Rocks have usually Outnumbered all other
classes of birds at the local shows for
many years, with the Buff Cochins and
White Wyandottes a close second. Several
towns along the western border of Minne

and they have been among the prize-winners,
and It la expected that section will be
well represented again this year. Prepara
tions have been made to take care of a
large number of entries, which J. N. Crow,
who has been doing the advance and pro

WASHINGTON, Jan. K. -(Special.) The
last half century has seen a great Increase
In the exports of farm products from the
United States. From an average of $1V.
000.000 a year In the five-year period. 1S51
IKA, the agricultural exports rose to an av
erage of $.175,000,000 n year in 1TO1-1905, and
In two subsequent Individual years (190?
und l&flR) surpassed $1,000,000,000.
Not only have such .exports Increased,
but they have Increased much faster than
the population. Io H51-1.V the average
valuo per capita of the agricultural ex
ports of the United States was $&.ftn. In
1901-lUOA It was I10.8S, and slnoe 1906 it has
been still greater.
-A report on the annual exports of farm
products from the United States from 1861
to IMS, Inclusive, Is about to be published
as Bulletin 75 of the bureau of statistics,
United States Department of Agriculture.
Averages are given by five-year periods, so
that It Is possible to perceive the general
drift of the trade.-
Cotton Bis; In Export Value.
The chief agricultural products exported
In the last half century have been (1) cot
ton, (2) grain and' grain products, and (3)
Packing house products.
In 1S61-1SK5 cotton made nearly two-thirds
of the. value of all agricultural exports,
but In 1901-1905 between one-third and one
half only, although tha average quantity
exported Increased from 1,028,000,000 pounds
in 1K1-18NS to 1,677,000,000 pounds In 1901
1905, while In 1907, the highest year, 4,518,
000.000 pounds were sent out In the period
1861-18rt6 the quantity of cotton exports was
only about 6 per cent of that for 185S-1890.
Increases occurred afterward, however, un
til in 1878-18S0 the average quantity ex
ported was somewhat greater than In the
period Just prior to the civil war. In quan
tity exported per capita, the five-year
period 1SM-ISC0 was highest; there were
then exported 44.8 pounds of cotton per
capita. The nearest approach to this was
44.5 pounds per capita in 1901-1906. Cotton
seed products, such as cottonseed oil, oil
cake and oilcake meal, have assumed con
siderable Importance In the export trade
of the United State In recent years, that
la, beginning about 1878. The value of oot
tonseek products exported averaged during
the last several years from 125,000,000 to
I3,000,000 a year, the highest being In 1907,
Grain Goes In Vast Quantities.
Grain and Its products come second In
order of value. They Increased from a
yearly average of 826,000,000 In 1861-1865 to
$194,000,000 In 1901-1906, and In 1908 were
216.O00,C00. The chief. Items are wheat (In
eluding wheat flour), corn and oa.ts. Ex
ports of these cereals during 1851-1855 were
equivalent to about 20,000,000 bushels of
grain annually, and rifty years . later to
250,000,000 bushels. The period of largest
grain export was 1896-1900, since which
time there has been a decline. The per
capita exports of wheat and flour were
largest Jn 1881-li5,,when they were equiva
lent to 1.6 bushels per capita; in 1901-1906
the average exports, per capita were two
bushels, and since 1906 have been leas than
two bushels, . In corn the maximum limit
was reached In 0$9. 1900, when an average
of 3.4 bushels per , capita waa exported.
j.ni come a downward tendency, the ex
ports in tho next five-year period betna'
only 1.1 bushels per capita, and In uc4re better than those of any other man
ceedlmr ven.r falling Kau., - , iST

Compared with corn and wheat, exports
of oats .have been small, the largest aver
age for any five-year period being 38,000,000
ousneis a year during lsw-1900, or aome
thing more than one-fifth the correspond
ing exports of corn or of wheat, including
Our Meat Products In Demand.
Exports of packing house products, a
third leading group, have Increased much
more rapidly in the last half century than
cotton or cereals. The average value of
packing house products exported In 1851
1855 . was $10,000,000 a year, and in 1901-1905
It was $18,000,000, while In 1908 the value
was 1K6,(100.000. The principal Items of this
group are pork, lard. - beef and oleo oil.
As in the case of grain, the greatest ex
ports of lard and pork Were in the five
year period. 189S-1900. The exports of lard
have Increased nearly eight times as fast
as the population of the United States
The average per capita In 1861-1855 was 1 1
pounds a year, while fifty years later, In
1901-1906, the average reached 8.6 pounds
per capita. Another great lncrem. .
curred in per capita exports of pork. The
,v.rage ror is w-1870 was 1.8 pounds per
capita; In 1876-18S0, 13.6 pounds per csptta
and in 1901-1906, 14 pounds per capita.
The largest exports of beef and
(those In 1901-1905) amounted to 408,000 000
pounds a year for beef and 148,000,000 pounds
for oleo oil. Since 1906 there has been a
marked decline In exports of beef the
average for 1906-1B08 being only 349,000(100
pounds a year, or less than for any five
year period since 1886-18). On the other
hand, the averng exports of oleo oil dur
lng the three years ending with 1908 ex
cetded the average for 1301-1906 bv nMrl
American Tobareo Popular.
Tobacco, which a century ago was amon
the most important of our exports, still
holds a prominent placa. Exports of un-
manufactured tobacco have averaaed alno
1891-1S95 more than 300,000.000 pounds a year,
with an averase yearly valuation of about
30,POO,000. The per capita exports of this
product declined fiorn 6.8 pounds in 1851-
l Pounds In 1901-1906. while during
1S03-1908 the average was less than four
Exports of fruits Increased from i7i rort
In 18.11 to $30,000,000 In 1904, aid subsequently
they ranged froru $14,000,000 to $17,000,000.
Exports of hops hsvc been Irregular. In
1S51, 110,000 pounds were exported; in 1&56
4.023.&10; In Un. m.m; In 1U, 8,816,000; In

Whether or not Mr. Cannon of Illinois
decides to become a candidate for re-election
as speaker of the Sixty-second oon
gress In the event of the republicans re
taining control of the house, It is certain
that Uncle Joe will have a very strenuous
opposition. Although the rules whloh have
led to the designation of the present par
liamentary methods In the house as "Can
nonlsm" are tho outgrowth of the rules
of the first congress over which Mr. Reed
presided, and, although so far as they re
late to the powers of the speaker, they
were not changed by the congresses n
which Mr. Crisp, Mr. CarliKle and Mr. Hen
derson were speakers, the Insurgent fight
against them has led to the common belief
throughout the country that "Cannonism"
means tho method now in existence for the
control of representative affairs in the
house Of representatives.
The mont ardent supporters of "Unci
Joe" admit that the so-called Insurgent
opposition to him Is virile and widespread
and many of his most earnest friends hopo
that he will not permit his name to gs
before the republican caucus In the next
house If the republicans control that body.

It is, of course, to be expected that the
west, end especially the middle west, will
make vigorous" efforts to secure the honor
for one of Its sons, and ordinarily It would
appear that James A. Tawney of Minnesota
will become the most formidable candidate
for the honor. If the west Is to have that
Important position Tawney will perhaps
go into the contest with more strength than
any other man who could be named from
the region west of the Mississippi. Mr.
Tawney Is one of the most able and fore
ful members of the house of representa
tives. Like "Uncle Joe," himself, ho has
served for a long time on the committee
of appropriations and has shown a deep
seated knowledge of all affairs relating to
the conduct of the government business.
Also, like "Uncle Joe," he has fearlessly
fought for outialstent reductions In ap
propriation for government expenses which
he regarded as extravagant, and also, like
his able predecessor, he has been frequently
"turned down" by the majority In the
house. But Mr. Tawney comes from the
state of Minnesota, where tnsurgentlsni
seems to have obtained a powerful foot
hold, and this in Itself will act as a check
upen his ambition to secure the gavel
which gives the holder a position second
only to that of the president In the United
. Boom for Olmatead.
Not since Mr. Reed stepped down from
the speaker's rostrum has the east fur
nished the presiding officer for the house,
and for this reason the east will probably
Insist upon consideration In the next cau
cus, and when the eastern candidates are
looked oVer Representative OlmBtead of
Pennsylvania looms up In the foreground
as by long odds the most' formidable of the
available candidates. Mr. Olmstead ia re
garded as a parliamentarian second to nor.o
In the lower house. He has had-long ex
perience in congress. He has the faculty
for surrounding himself with followers who I
will fight for him and who believe In him
and he Is wlthall without Intangling alli
ances. He Is by no means objectionable to
the so-called progressives and at this
writing1 it would appear that If the middle
west is to be sidetracked Mr. Olmetead's
chances of succeeding to the speakership

In a recent report to the executive board
of the General Federation of Woman's
clubs, the federation chairman ot Indus
trial and child labor committee made the
following significant announcement.
"Tour chairman submits that she has
paid especial attention to the matter of
contract convict-made goods as It affects
the wages and employment of women. The
whole subject of convict labor Is one of
pressing Importance and one that is being
treated largely by magazine writers and
by those qualified to speak. We naturally
dt sire to advocate reformatory methods In
our penal Institutions, but we find that the
reformatory idea of creating a oltlsen out
of a man confined In a penal institution is
lost sight of In the greed for gain in some
one or more contracts.
"As a result ot an investigation started
by your chairman along these lines in the
state of New York and which was carried
on through the state labor department
conditions were revealed which have re
sulted in the organisation of a national
committee on prison labor for the purpose
of making a nation wide study of this sub
ject and suggesting remedial legislation.
The General Federation of Women's olubs
may, your chairman thinks, felicitate Itself
upon the fact that this committee which
will comprise leading men and women
In the labor movement, among manufac
turers and for the general public, is a
result of the work of the Industrial oom
mlttee. Your chairman Is obtaining from
someone In each state as muoh data as
possible on the question of the kinds ot In
dustries In which convicts are employed
and to what extant It affects the work and
wages of free women. We feel that all
convicts should be given sufficient em
ployment, but It should be in Industries
In which the men could get employment
were they outside at prison and for prices
which would benefit the state and ths
family of the convict and relieve the tax
payer and not be solely for the benefit of
ths contractor with the pull,
"The question ot pensions for aged em
ployes bears heavily upon the women in
Industries and also the question Of proper
safeguarding against accidents .and in
these two matters your chairman Is co
operating with organisations devoting time
and means to placing these subjects prop
erly before the public
