canals are rapidly nearing completion, which will
bring into the highest state of cultivation 150,000
acres of the most productive land upon which the
sun's rays shine. The citizenship of North Platte
is that of the best afforded by the older states, and
her people are active, progressive and prosperous.
To the industrious, energetic home-seeker from
the crowded east North Platte and Lincoln county
presents unusual advantage. Thousands of acres
of vacant government land, in closo proximity to
thoe already being brought under irrigation, may
be obtained by consulting the United States land
office in North Platte. A letter of inquiry to "17.

Ha! Ha!! Excuse the levity,
but did you notice that old Bill Nye
cut which the Era palmed off upon
its readers last week as a reproduc
tion of the classic features of Guy
A. Laing-. Ever' one of its sub
scribers may bring- an action against
that sheet for endeavoring1 to obtain
money under false pretences, and
Judge Ray would sustain the action.
By the way, who in the name of the
late Davis jH. Waite, is "brother
Bishop Messmer of Green Bay,
Wisconsin, has been called down
bv the Kniirhts of Pythias, and
challenged to prove certain charges
made bv him imoutinsr to that
order anti-Christian principles and
purposes. This is business; and
we sincerely hope that the bishop
will manfully prove his charges or
eat his words." There is a duty
incumbent on American Catholic
laymen that must be asserted in
the verv teeth of anv bishoo who
ml W
undertakes to put them in any false
position in relation to those socie
ties. Catholics are morally bound
to render obedience to their bishops
in matters of faith and morals; but
it will be well for bishops and lay
men to mutually understand that
Catholics have other relations,
duties and obligations to sustain.
If thev themselves are worthy of
liberty they must forever cheerfully
observe a decent regard for the
rights and liberties, the opinions
and feelimrs of others. The church
commands us not to enter certain
secret societies. She accompanies
that demand with the satisfying
reason that our individual consci
ences must not be chained by such
societies oath nor blindly guided
by some power behind the scenes.
Un the august presence of the
church we bow, and accept her dic
tate as the voice of God. But if
any bishop seeks to unjustly assail
the motive of our fellow citizens,
and to make war upon them,
American Catholics take no part in
it. AVe are Catholics, but we are
also Americans. On this soil our
fathers died, and here our children
were born. By the holiest impulse
of patriotic duty we are always and
everywhere Americans, and we pro
pose to cultivate feelings of mutual
interest, charity, harmony and
kindly forbearance with Masons.
Odd Fellows. Knights of Pythias,
and all other good and law abiding
Americans. We are exceedingly
jealous of our own rights, ex
tremely sensitive as to doubtful
aspersions upon our motives; and
it is unfair for any man, whether
he wear the beretta of a Cardinal,
the mitre of a bishop or the plain
collar of a curate, to call down upon
us the reasonable resentment of
our neighbors and our friends who
are members of those societies.

Friend Stoddard discovered the
difference between a republican
legislature and a body of populist
patriots. When lie found there was
not offices sufficient to go around,
he modestly retired from the con
test, well knowing that a new lot
of sinecure positions would not
be made. Had he been be
fore a pop aggregation he would
have known that if there were not
sufficient places for all, more would
have been created. Do you see the
point, Mr. Era? Two years ago

by the fact that we are forced to

Tlcrsliey & Co'?.
. Paris, Jan. 14. A bomb explosion
occurred at about midnight in front 01
62 Rue Monceau, and is believed to have
been the work of anarchists. Nobody
was killed, but considerable damage was
done in the vicinity. The bomb is de
scribed as being of the reversible sort,
cliiefly charged with dynamite, packed
in gunpowder and concealed in an Eng
lish tin cracker box, strengthened by a
thick band of aluminnm. In other re
spects the bomb is said to have been
charged and prepared in a manner sim
ilar to the one used by Vaillant in the
chamber of deputies. The police at
present have no clue to the culprit, al
though some policemen on duty in ad
jacent streets saw a man running
swiftly away a short time previous to
the explosion. The police are maintain
ing the usual reticence as to the facts
in the case, thus making it probably
more difficult to trace the mat
ter to its foundation. It appears
however, that a porter on duty at No.
(m Rue Monceau just before midnight
was informed by a passerby that a sus
picious looking parcel had been placed
on the window ledge of the ground floor.
The porter in alarm rushed to the spot
and seizing the parcel he hurled it into
the middle of the street.
Shower of Shot.
A terrific explosion followed and
showers of shot were hurled in all direc
tions, breaking all the windows in the
vicinity, sdthongh they were protected
by strong wooden shutters.
Following the explosion there was a
panic in the neighborhood, particularly
among the people living in the immedi
ate vicinity. No 63 was formerly the
residence of Prince Victor Napoleon a'ld
its front, was terribly damaged. The
explosion of the bomb threw several
large paving stones into the strea way, j
tore up the paving and stirred up the
street in an amazing manner. Holes J
were made in the stone work of
several of the houses. The porter, it ap
pears, was warned by a Videt, who was
returning home and who noticed the
parcel on the window ledge. In an in
terview published in The Matin this
morning, the valet is quoted as saying
that when he saw the tin box on the
window ledge he hurriedly entered the
house and informed the porter that there
was an extraordinary parcel ou the win
dow. The porter hastened out
Into the street, took tho box and
threw it as far as he eouM.
The two men then entered the house
and closed the door. A moment later
there was a tremendous report. Neither
of the men noticed a fuse attached to
the bomb. The police express the opin
ion tnat- tne explosion was directed
against M. Alhalin, the magistrate who
conducted the inquiries in the outrages
committed by Ravachol and other an
archists, who lives in the Rug Verselay,
facing the scene of the explosion.
During the morning the cliief of the
municipal laboratory was engaged in ex
amining the scene of the explosion, and
it is said that he is inclined to think that
the explosion was more in the nature of
a dangerous joke than an anarchist out
rage. He is reported to have ascertained
that the bomb contained no projectiles
and that it was apparently only charged
-with gunpowder. The windows broken
are also said to have been broken by
concussion and by fragments of the lox
and not by shot orbidlets. The machine,
it is added, was made to explode on con
tact with the ground.
' Liege Anarchist on Trial.
Liege, Belgium, Jan. 14. Tho trial of
16 anarchists, including the notorious
Jagolchowski, alias Baron Sternbern
(who failed to appear as he is now in a
Russian prison), was commenced here
today. The prisoners are charged with
being concerned in the dynamite out
rages iu Liege in the spring of 189-1, the
most serious being the explosion at the
residence of Dr. Renson. Large num
bers of gendarmes and other police were
stationed in court and guarded the ap
proaches to the law courts as a precau
tion against anarchist outrages.

BnooKLYN, Jan. 14. At 5 a. m. all the
trolley cars in Brooklyn were tied up,
the employes refusing to take out the
cars. Over 5,000 men quit work. This
includes motermen, conductors, elec
tricians, switchmen and others employed
at the various power houses. All but
one of the surface raids, and that a com
paratively minor concern, are affected.
It is claimed that the strike will extend
to the lines of the Brooklyn Elevated
Railroad company. The contract be
tween the Kings County Elevated rail
way company and its employes is
such that it is believed that there cau be
no strike on that line. District Assem
bly 75, Knights of Labor, which has
control of the trolley employes in Brook
lyn, has held various conferences dur
ing the past week, but President Lewis
refused to grant their demands. Tho
outcome of this w:is, the committee held
a meeting, which ended at 2 a. m.. at
which it was decided to tie up all the
roads in the city of Brooklyn, with tho
exception of the Smith and Jay Street
lines. This was done this morning and
not a car outside of the Smith and Jay
Street line is running.
Electricians Refused to Take Out Cars.
The companies expected tho men
woidd go out this morning and determ
ined to anticipate them. They asked the
electricians, about 1,000 in number, if
they would take out the cars this morn
ing. Every one of them refused to do
so. They were then told that there was
no work for them. This morning tho
people had to use the elevated roads.
The trains were made up with extra cars
to accommodate the rush. The Conrt
street line of the Brooklyn City com
pany ran out seven cars, beginning at 8
o'clock. The ears were manned, front
and rear, by two policemen. There was
no trouble. There was no car running
on the Fifteenth street branch. It is
said that President Slocum, when
waited upon at 9:30 o'clock by the ex
ecutive committee, had conceded the de
mands of tho men. The entire police
force, consisting of 1,700 men, is in
readiness in case there should be auv
trouble, bnt none is expected.
Statement of Grievances.
The grievances and demands are thus
stated: The schedule privities that a
day's work of street car employes shall
be 10 hours, within 12 consecutive hours.
It is alleged that the corporations havo
required them to work 11 hours, aud
latterly, even 12 hours, with no
interval longer than 10 minutes for
lunch, and oven depriving them of that-
brief time in most- instances. The wage
rate agreed uion a year ago w:ts .$2 for
the statutory day's work. The com
panies, it is alleged, have made no al
lowance for overtime. The men de
mand adherence to the law in regard to
hours in a day's work, or $'2.23 for a day
-on 2 hours.
An address issued by the executive
committee of District Assembly 75 al
leges that the trouble wjis precipitated
by the Brooklyn Heights company, in
excluding their electric workers from
work. The statement goes on to say
that the flagrant violation of the 10-hour
law has mentally and physically inca
pacitated the men for their work. While
the corporations are not allowed by law
to run at a rate of speed of
more than 10 miles an hour, through
schedules are arranged so that the cars
have to le run at a rate of speed of from
15 to 20 miles an hour. In consequence
nearly 200 fatal accidents have occurred
since th trolley was introduced, and j
countless injuries to passengers, all of
which wits caused by the greed of the
corporations. The power houses em
ployes are organized its Knights of Lalor
just the same as tho motonnen and con
ductors, and when the signal is given to
stop work they will fall into lino aud
not a car can le moved.

summer, just after the federal troops
were ordered to Chicago to qnell the
riots, a scheme was placed leforo Debs,
himself and other labor leaders to re
move the headquarters to Oregon or
Washington, and set up a provisional
government and declare independence
from the United States.
He says the scheme was hatched by
bnsiness men and lawyers at Chicago,
who said that troops would be secured
to defend the new government, against
the United States troops. He says the
labor leaders were too loyal to take up
with the scheme, and besides it was
thought to be a scheme on the part of
the railroads to nullify the laboring
