Its quadrennial deliberation today under

Besides the members of. the Imperial
cabinet, fifteen premier and mlniater
from the over-the-aea dominion of the em

"all-red" transportation line to encircle the
globe, and a future constitution of the
The hope la expressed that out of the
discussion of the last topic may come some
definite proposal for the federation of the
The Anglo-American relationship Is likely
to be discussed In connection with the
question of Imperial defense, as also Is the
part which tha Australasian navies are to
play In that defense, as Australasians,
alnce the visit of the American fleet to
that continent three years ago, have come
to regard America a a possible ally In
the policing of tha Pacific
The fiscal question probably will take a
back seat In the discussion in view of the
determination of the liberal government to
keep the door bolted against anything In
the nature of Imperial preference.
The meetlnga are held In strict privacy,
so that the public will have to be satis
fied with the mere official fragment of
the proceeding given out at the end of

outdo Oehkosh In the matter of showing
Omaha, but lha new tows with the foreign
name' has set ' a pec which will be hard
for any town or city In , Nebraska to beat.
The concert and ball ilven In honor of tba
visitors waa not sufficient The good peo
ple of Oshkoah were up bright and early
Tuesday momtrvg to meet the train on lta
return from North Port and the atralne
of the Oshkosh band bid the Omahan fare
well aa they left the "valley of the Nile"
to begin the day' trip on tha main line.
Oshkosh and Omaha are o much alike
that Oshkoeh simply' could not let go.
To meet tha Omaha business men a num
ber of Gertna1 and Bridgeport otUaena cam
to North Port by automobile. . Thcae two
towns were flatted two year ago by tha
Omaha excursion and tha business men,
Just could not get along without another
look at tha real trade excursionists.
Everybody Oat at Broadwater.
"Count the 'people at Broadwater depot
and you will know what tha population la,"
aid a message received on the train be
fore the train pulled Into the little city, and
It took some time to count them, too.
Hershey waa a town which could show any
bhe' that western. Nebraska la tha rival ot
any wheat and small grain growing section
In the country . '- . , '
Hundred of little lack ot wheat and
oata were given to the visitor. On opening
them the yfound not only - prise-winning
grain, but a ' little note giving tha facta
about' where eaeh'sample waa grown and
what tha production per acre was. One nota
waa signed by Albert' Morris and aald: "X
have raised 8.000 bushel of thl wheat in,
WIO, also bOO bushels of corn and SOS bush
els of oats." There' I plenty of thla kind
of land for el a fa four year I have mad
enough money ta .quit farming, and am

Platte In tima to mak an address and tell
tha , people of North Platte . that tha
Omahans would support their city for tha

mak a better Impression on the visitor.,
North Piatt waa correspondingly con

of ' tha valley which Is showing th
Omahan how much of ' tha future pros

train worked it way, passing, between
long lines of school children at many of
