proved, to be most severe, and there
is not a railroad in Nebraska that
did not suffer deleterious effects in
consequence. - Telegraph poles by

night. The wires became coyerecl
with a heayy cpatnfr of sleet, and

steadily swayed the wires to and
fro they could not stand the vibra

and just went d.awn jn a heap. The
rails also became covered with sleet
and their slippery condition caused

coaches to slip and slide along- de

The Union Pacific this mornin"
found over 300 of its telegraph poles
between Columbus and Kearney
measuring their length, on the snow

add that all telegraphic caramnci
cafclan between these points was
suspended. West of Kearney there
was. not set much trouble; although
the wires were pretty well tangled.
The poles remained upright, how
ever, and the wires did not fall
down. At 1 oclock this afternoon

A great squash that filled a

ceived by:-Bresidqn t-Brejt McKin
Iey Thursday, a gift from Colonel
eharles Worker of Blaine precinct.
Pierce county. Nebraska. Accom
panying the squash was a clipping
from the Pierce Call, which ex
plained that the squash had been
grown in the only precinct in Pierce
; county which gave McKmley a raa-
pnty. Averse was scratched on
1'thesquasrn the last line of which
reads: Early in November I shall
make ilcKIaley pies."
The official presidential vote in
this state is now ooen to the inoec-
tion of the public Republicans will
find nothing- discouraging- in a
study of the returns and comparison
with the vote or four years ago. It
is true that McKiniev was beaten in !
Nebraska by 13.060 votes, but his
total of 103.565 is a gain of 600
OTer the vote received by Harrison.
The Bryan, vote oi 115.625 is a. gain
of only .000 over the combined vote
cast for Cleveland and Weaver. The
republicans will come out ahead in
the next rounp up.- -State Journal.
