A citi Icinati of means ami one
wlio means husiness is in town in
consultation with President Wind
ham of the hoard of trade and his
committee in regard to establishing
a factory in l'lattsuiouth. It is not
good public policy at the present
time to give tie.' details to the
world, hut the proposed factory is
one which will lie uite an addition
to the manufacturing interests here
and the goods w hich will he made
are a staple. Th" plan is to confine
the investors lo three or four capi
talists, and to push the establish
ment to an immediate completion.
Within a month or two after the
signing of the' agreement the fac
tory can he in operation.
The effort that the committee is
making to induce capitalists to
locate here has resu.lted already in
attracting the attention of several
eastern firms and matters looking
toward the enlargement of thin
town's industrial output are in i
better condition than ever hefore
A letter was idiown to The Hkk
AU by an attorney who is the rep
resentative of several wealthy
Omaha men, which outlines th
plan for the organization of Mill
another company, which is sure to
lo a large tnisiness and its head
quarters are to heat Plattsmouth.
Th9 Now Opera House.
Tin: II i:k.t.i isol'llcially informed
that the re building of the Plaits

which was horned a few week ago
is now a certainly. As soon as the
insurance matters, which are pro
gressing s it i-dactorily, have been
adjusted the plans of the builders
of the new edifice will he given lo
the public. As has been suggested
by Tin; IIkkw.h, the new opera
house will be on the ground Hour,
the entrance on Main street and the
body of the house in the rear of the
fiirrouudiiiL' storerooms. The new
building will be a much more im
posing one than the old hoiipe and
will be in style and finish a com

Frank Kennedy and Charlie K'eid,
two smallpox patients who were re
moved from the J.anciiKter county
jail to a tent on the west side of
Salt Creek, southwest of South and
First streets, J.inculn, escaped from
their guards at midnight last
night. The fellows effected their
escape during the temporary ab
sence of C.uard I I.ilUm.m by hit
ting Adams, the either, gmud,

attached to their legs by a chain,

he was hit andhastciied toward the
tent in time to see the two patients
run up the creek, lie fired several
shots at the fugitives but missed
them. Intelligence of the escape
was sent to the county jail and to
police headquarters and a search
was instituted for the fugitives, but
it was fruitless.
The theory of Health Officer liar
train that Kennedy and K'eid were
shamming and did not have small
pox, but produced the eruptions on
their skin by the application of
croton oil will enjoy a boom in pop
ularity. Health Officer Jfartram
has persistently clung to his theory
against the vigorous opposition of
several leading physicians, and on
numerous occasions predicted that
the men would escape if not closely
watched. II is prediction has been
realized. At an early hour this
morning the fugitives had not been

PEOPLE AND AFFAIRS.
"Judge W. II. Newell," said are
publican citizen at The K'iley last
evening, "seems to be worrying
over democratic friends. There is
little doubt but that if Newell is
nominated by the republicans to
oppose Frank K. While for lloat
representative that he will defeat
the democratic-railroad candidate.
My the way, it is really amusing to
see The Journal grow eloquent
about anti-railroad candidates and
then whoop it up for its special
favorite the Hon. Frank K. White.
Hut then it is all right for a dem
ocrat to be a railroad man. The
sincerity of democratic managers 1
is suinething wonderful."
Two car loads of No. 1 hard wheat
shipped from Sterling, Neb., a few
days since, fell into the bauds of
Chief Inspector Smillie of the state
inspection department at Chicago
It tested sixty-four and a half
pounds to the measured bushel and
was pronounced the finest grain the
inspector had ever seen. Samples
were kept for the world's fair ex
hibit. The Journal seems to have been
interviewing MiSton 1). ISilk on
local political affairs, and it rightly
classes him as "a prominent demo
crat." He is a democrat for this
campaign and is doing his level
best to injure the republican cause
by shady methods, but his "work'
has lost its effectiveness. He is a
detriment to any party or individ
ual he pretends to aid. The slush
about "a deal" in regard to some
contracts is on a par with demo
cratic campaign talk. The average
democrat has "deal" on the brain
and cries because he is not in on
the ground floor.
It is currently reported on the
street that the ultimatum has bet n
issued from the sheriff's office that
"Tin: Hi:k'.LI) shall have no more
legal advertisements from this
office." Well, well! That sounds
rich, too. The power and patron
age attached to a public office, sus
tained by the whole people, is to be
used by the present occupants, so
it is alleged, to club the press to
silence -in regard to the wrong
iloings of officials. I low do the
honest democratic farmers of Jef
fersonian simplicity and Jack
sonian integrity like that? How
