tho Trip rroiii Lincoln im heen by
a "Ooiitlcr" Scribe.
Wi'll, It seems utmost itu ago since I loft
Lincoln unci yet it If luit only n fow days ago.
Tlio Journey, however, Is mi long unit nt times
so very tedious nml monotonous Unit t lino
drags instead of passing liy pleasantly, as
ono would oxoct. leaving Lincoln in tlu
morning nt nliout 8 o'clock tlio destination
jsjlnt Ih reached nt 7 a. in. of tho fourth day,
making tlio trip In a llttlo less tlinn thm
days, and as far west as Cheyenne tlio Jour
noy is a very pleasant ono. Tlio surrounding
country is well settled, tlio cyo over viewing
tlio imtirovomeutH in iiaturu on either side of
the track that have been added to tho land
scape In tho last fow years. Tho new "Over
land l'Tyer" on tho Union Pacific nddsuilleh
enjoyment to tho trip over what it w as for
merly, (thanks to tho deceased Pottoi), for
now instead of diagging along at twenty
miles an hour tho Pneillc coast Meeker Is Jour
noyed at tho rate of forty to llfty miles an
hour, saving all entire day in time between
Lincoln, Omaha and either San Krauelsco
or l'oitland. Tho change in train son ire is
uimtlccahlo now feature, and tho new rolling
stock adds much to tho beauty of tho Union
Pncille's immeuso train. On tho "FIor"
wo llnd no antique cms of tho M'J iH-rlcsl, but
all now coaches of tho most modern Improve
ment. Thoy uero built by I'ullman, and
havo tho sumo cushions and many of tho
Mulshing and furnishings that aio found in
tho celebrated Bloopers of this inuko, but of
Course not ipilto ius elaboiato. Tho "Flyer"
leaving Omaha makes a picture to IhjIioM,
forming as it does a lino of four and live
sleeping cars, two day coaches, besides the
bnggago and express cars and ottimos more,
iw tho travel demands. To somo it might
seem queer to havo so many sleeiwrs, but
they havo each a destination, viz: I'ortlimd,
San Fruuelsco, Us Angeles, Salt Iako and
ono or two other xjlnt.s. Tho trip after leav
ing Uhoyenno Is almost void of Interest, suvu
an occasional point where an antique struc
ture Is seen; u struy Indian or somothing on
that order. At Granger wo leave tho main
lino of tho Union 1'acltlc and enter tho Ore
gon Short line, and for hundreds of miles wo
see naught but sago brush and sand, with
mountains on either side, and gazing on tho
latter wo wonder how and why nature has
bhuped them thus; so rugged, immeuso and
massive, wo llndumplo tinio to marvel at tho
chain of so much mountainous country
and to think of what hidden treasures
that lio theioili yet for man to discover.
Along tho lino ono can seo an occasional
"hole In tho ground" in tho mountain sides,
hero and there a Hume, and tho loose earth
strewn about shows that tho prosjioctor has
been hi tho Held w ith pick and shovel. And
so tho Journey goes on without anything of
particular inteiest to note, until wo near Tho
Dallejt, n Motion vu tho Oregon Railway
Navigation Co's line.
From this point webt it Is noticeable that
true civilization exists, for ouco again agri
culture is progressive and tho products yield
bountifully and of excellent quantities.
However, tho scale on which tho work is
carried on and In its acreage, has no coin
parlsou to our Nebraska Holds. Chinamen
do the work and aro considered very success
ful. Tho country from Dalles is very intor
csiilig and benuttful, entering as it does and
follow ing it closely up for more than a hun
dred miles tKo famous Columbia river. On
its banks wo see largo numbers of llshories
and saw mills. Tho country is thickly tim
bered and of lato years tho cutting of this
wood has licon acivcly taken up, and ship
ping to eastern markets has bccucommciuccd.
Tho wood is of red color and is said to Ik) the
lluest building lumber In tho United States,
and I am told th'it rich eastern syndicates
aro buying up laud and will ship all their
products to eastern markets.
It is now Wednesday and I am hi tho great
city of 1 ortlaud, nearly 2,000 tulles from
homo, hut vet I do not feel lonesome: on tho
contrary, having met numerous friends, feel
quno at, iiuiue.
Seated at tlio Oilman house I am told by a
frlond that tho imputation Is "badly mixed"
and that tho town Is not settled particularly
by any class, but that tho English jooplo aro
most prominent. There aro numerous (ler
inaus and a liberal supply of Israelites, w ith
of course tho greater majority being native
isirn Americans, many of tho old inhabitants
having lived hero from twenty to thirty
Unfortunately for me, I struck tho rainy
season, and now tho dew Is gently falling and
tho atmosphere is chilly. This, the citieus
claim is their most disagreeable season and
to hear thorn grumble ono would think thoy
hato it liko a Nchriisknu hates a blizzard, but
I don't thid It very disagreeable. It Is not a
very heavy rain, but very light and does not
seem to bo as drenching as our Nebraska
rains. No thunder and light'iiug accompany
tho storms, and during them you can see
ladles out shopping and tho streets aro full of
people as at any other time. Thoy get used
to it and don't mind it. This weather, how
over, only continues about threo out of
twelvo mouths, and the balance o; tho year
lias such delightful climate that every resi
dent speaks of as lielng tho lest In tlio world.
Contiary to expectations, theio is but very
Tho almond eyo heathen is hero in all his
glory and in Portland today tho Chinamen
havo a population of G.OtX) to 7,000. Thoy aro
to bo seen every where and aro generally con
sidered honest, trustworthy and industrious
ieoplo. As cooks thoy havo no siiH'riors
hero and aro found In many other hnpoi tutit
places, l'eoplo hero seem to favor them in
preference to white laborers, and among them
wo find many very wealthy iorsoiis who live
good stylo, but do not own their homos, nor
aro thoy allowed to, but always loaso. Here,
like in San Francisco, they havo certain
streets that they principally inhabit, and as
a rule aro very clean iiiul tidy. Their stores
look nice and busiiioss-liko and their living
hero Is peaceful and (pilot.
Among those whom 1 met since leaving
leaving l.lnojlu was Mr. I). I. Kaufman,
formerly of Hyumu& Kauiiiiau, of Lincoln.
Ho is travelling for ono of S.iu Francisco' s
largest grocery houses and nppaiont
ly Is doing well. I met him In Oregon near
Liko In San Francisco and Denver the,
fashion hero is also ipilto Knglish regarding
tho manner of living, vl.i Hroakfust at 8 to
10, lunch ll:'J0to ihlfOniid dinner at 5 to H
o'clock. It Is a good custom and I havolio
como ipilto pleased with It and now enjoy it
lietter than our usual custon of eating. Near
ly all hotels hero aro on tho Eurooan plan,
but there Is not u Mrst-cluss house hero that
Is, nono to compare with tho l'axton, Mlllird
and that sort. However, the foundation of
an Immense hostelry Is now ready for a lino
structure. Some several years ago Vlllanl,
tho great Northern l'acillc man, stnttcd tc
build an S00,000 hotel and when tho sui,ht
strueturo was Mulshed, costing f.'0,000,
money gave otitand tho scheme failed. Now
capital Is lielng raised to complete the struc
ture and when done It will tho lionuty of
tho l'acillc coast.

An Indian Hoy's Composition.
Hero Is a composition written by Fred Big
Horso, a smart Itl-year-old Sioux boy, who
has leen a year or two at tho Indian school
ftt Carlisle, Pa. Fred is evidently cut out for
o newspaper humorist. Tho titlo of tho com
position is '-Monkeys," and this Is what ho
writes about them: "Thero aro many kinds
of nuimuls. Monkoys and monkeys, etc. Tho
monkeys aro very much liko a monkey, too.
Tho monkeys can climb a tree liko n monkoy.
They havo long lingers liko a monkoy. Tho
monkoys havo long tails and long bodies liko
a monkey. Thoy often piny a merry gamo
and sing a morry song liko a monkoy. Onco
upon a tlino my friend and I wero young
men that tlmo wo took a trip wo started oh?
from Dakota and away wo went and then wo
wont to South America. Thero wo saw tho
nionkejs and monkeys every whero on tho
troos screaming and chattering everywhere
on tho trees. Thoy wero very cheerful liko
monkeys. Wo siw all kinds of monkoys In
Bouth America; wo caught a shipload of
them and brought them back to tho United
States and sold them for so much money.
Then wo took tho money to buy a big balloon
and it blow away. Then wo had no monkoys,
no money and no balloon." Now York Sun.

Tho sjMH'tnoular drama of ".oo, (he

play is one which will please every class of

Fiom the Itoston Iraveller of DoeemlsT lit,

extract regarding tho production of "Julius
Cii-sar" in that city.
Tho revival of "Julius Cicsar" at the llos
ton last evening, in which Mr. Edwin Ilooth
apissiieil as Hrutiis and Mr. I-nwrcuco llar
lettas Casnius.attraetisl a verj lurge, cul
turisl, and enthusiastic audience Itoth
tragisllaus seemed to ap)sar at their U'st lu
tliu tritgisly last night. It Is doubtful if a
iicrformauco of late j ears has Urn given tlmt
was more harmonious, more complett , nunc (
iiiR'iiigeui in inmigiii aim aiusuc in one,
and in every way more admirable, by u legi
timiite dramatic coniMiiiy organized for tuur
ing the country, than tho one Monday cmii
nig Coining together when theiv weix in
the full possession of their powers, when the
rewards of long and faithful service wire
bountifully theirs, they have set an example
of superior chaiaetor to tho atroiisof the
drama that can but prove tols) Hsitlv lu
tluei.ces for gixsl, and must live lu memory
for many years to como.
Tho iui;x'rsounttoii3 of Drums by Mr.
Ilooth and Casslus by Mr. Harrett have lieon
seen so often and commented on so frequently
that nothing further need is) said, except
that hoth were lu excellent spirits anil acini
with their customary artistic Mulsh, lutelll
geiico and careful endeavor, Mr, Ihxith Is,
IK'ihaps, a pathetic rather than a stern llru
tin, making the character one of devotion
and rending tho text In n masterly manner.
If Mr. Harrett Is evenly stiong lu any one
lai t it Is Casslus. It Ills him exactly, and
consequently the character Is inimitably
Tho audience was deelihslly demoiistiatlve
lu its applause for Messrs. Ilooth, Harrett ami
Huckloy, and at the end of the fourth uctthn
two stais were callcsl lieforo the curtain live
times. The mobs wero itiiusiinlly woll mini
agisl, and by tholr action displayed somo
kuowlislgoot what thoy wore oxpcolodjto do,
Mr. Harrett Is iinrlvallisl as a stage manager
lu this country, and his staging of "Julius
Cicsar" showed his siqMirlor ability In that
direction, Tho scenery was elaborate, hand
some and picturesque. Tho Hrfnriuiitnm was
a magiiilleleut one lu ever) particular, mid
was evidently thoroughly apprisdutisl by tho
lino audience present. "Julius Cicsar" will
