a success whnt can we expect of eoplo at n

tirno nnd money to exhibit their wnrcsf It

An artistic display kept In neat onler during
tho fair Is worth much, oven though It does

nevertheless during the your.

The Military band has achieved an envl
able reputation ns a musical organization In
tho short time in which it has been organized.
Their concerts havo been listened to by thous
ands of eoplo with much appreciation. They
huvo been to n largo outlay for mstmmeuts,
uniforms and various other accoutrement,
u)ou which they huvn yet n payment to make.
In view of the fact that they havo and will
continue to furnish free concerts I think the
citizens of Lincoln ought to help them out by
subscribing liberally. There are no better
musicians In the west than Messrs. Ilngnnow
nnd Aschmaii,fiid they have gathered mound
them oidy the best and most talented musi
cians obtainable I want to see tho band
prosper and think tho jieople should support
Dick Johnson of tho Cnpisal hotel with his
usual foresight and charitable disiKwition,
started u subscription pnper Thursday for the
!oiieflt of the tiro laddlei who were so unmer
cifully robbed Wednesday night whllo at tho
fire. Dick showed tlio paper to tho generous
IHitrons of the house nnd a few friends and
fast night hnd nearly n hundred dollars sub
terlhcd. Tho idea is a commendable one and
sjieuks volumes for tho opulur chief clerk of
the Capital, and is an net tnat the city fire
department will not soon forget.

It was rumored about town yesterday thnt
t!i9 underwrite! a wcie to raise tho rutu of in
surance in Lincoln and that an increnso of
twenty-five per cent was talked of. This was
told mo by the proprietor of onoof the largest
dry goods houses, and tho reason given wns
thnt tho water supply being so uncertain, it
increased tho risk. Should this bo the wise It
will make thousands of dollars difference in

. Lincoln is certuinly in a very crippled con
dition just now as fur as tho water supply and
paving Is concerned, although tho latter in
soma places Is progressing more favorably
than heretofore, lint tho water, oh, tho fil
thy witter! thnt Is where tho great dilllculty
arises, und it Is just now a disastrous draw
back to the prosperity of tho city. Thero is sq
much tnlt in it that it cats through steuni boil
ers nud hns ruined dozens of then, throughout
tho city nnd if It does this, whnt effect must
it apparently havo on a person's stomach, to
my nothing at the horrible taste. The Ob
server has asked numerous persons during
the week whether they used city water for
drinking purposes, and tho answer nlmost in-
vnrubly cnnie, "No, wo can't drink it. We
go several blocks to get a bucket of well wn
tor." This is n sad state of n If aire. Citizens
pay a largo water rate, and oven then cannot
uso it. I havo been told of a number of
instances where jieople hud allowed their well
to go to ruin, that they have hud to dig new
ones at big expense, and still iay for city wa
ter. Thero has been too much "monkeylug"
with this water question and It's time far
fetched that something successful was lwing
done. There has lieen too much scheming
und meddling done, too many wells dug in tho
Mime pluce and too many fingers in the pie.
It is evident that the plant will havo to be re
moved, and tho sooner the bet er.
