Lew Dockstuder is nn-uico high sort of fol low. I don't menu thut he's u three curd rnontu man, nor u gnmtiler, but uw the ex pression simply to designate him us n prince nmong gocsl fellows. Toko him at tho soclnl or on the stngo, he is of tho sumo happy nn turonndlu Ids unpretentious inniiuer forces one to Inugh nnd adinlro him. Thero is noth ing flutjeious alxnit him, nor doon he pattern nftcr tho dude hi attire. Dockstndcr dresses plainly but neat nnd whllo in conversation with him, ho is as eutortninlng ns though on tho tKMinls. I don't know of n minstrel man today thnt is so generally liked as is Low Dockstuder. On the stngo ho is seen by le gions of admirers and socially in private life N ho scores his friend" by hundreds. t 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 them. 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. Complying with an ordinance recently (Missed by the council, I observe that a great many property owners nro lowering their side walks to the gradu and the improvement is a noticeable nnd timely one. It is to lo hoped thnt the good work will not cease but continue' ' 4 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 tho payment of insurance premiums in Lin coln und certainly n big kick will Ira Inugu rated. However, I don't think thut the in surance companies can or will make Mich a big increase. . 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. Diikotu lint HprliiK'. These springs aro nt two canons which come together forming one lit tho sliajio of a Y im mediately west of Battle mountain in tho southern Black Hills.

Tlin (I rent Irish Comedians, Harry Fay, at the Ftinke Tuesdny, nnd Thn employes of tho Kunke will tender a benefit to Manager Melloynolds on Tuesday evening next, the eocentri; Irish comedians, Barry V Fny, appearing In "McKemm's Kllr tatlon." There Is no very deep plot to tho piny, It being one of thaw light comedies constructed mora for laughing purposes thnn anything else. Of Hilly Harry nnd Hugh Fny little need lw snld but thnt their chitruc terlzntlou of the stngo Irishman (n person never mot whit in prlvnto life) le.tvo nothing to lw desired. Their fun Isof the wholesome kind, no straining of situation or juggling ot scenery is necessary to mnko tho jwople laugh. Miss Isabella Coe, tho leading comedienne, is n plipmutly pretty young woman, with a voice thnt -nptlvates nil. Tlin other nicmlvers of tho company are fully up to the exactions of their ch.imetoi , ns will bo attested by all who hnd thu pleasure of w itucxslng the pre sentation of "McKennn's Flirtation" somo mouths nco.
