What Is Heard, Seen, Learned and Perti
nently Snxgesteil to the Multitude.
A stranger wlio has boon within our gates
long enough to bccomo nn enthuslastla nd
mtrer of tho plnco until nmong other things:
"But over ami nbovo ovory thing else ou
have a homo-like city thnt mnkes n man's
heart warm to It. You hnvo mnny beautiful
and costly houses, but whnt 1 menu Ih that
tho general average Is so good. Everything
Is now and neat. There seem to bo no quar
ters given over to dirty, degraded classes.
in fact you don't seem to have those classes
among ypu. Tho city strikes mo as lolng
made up mostly of Americans from tho east,
and to Jndgo from their homes thoy seem to
havo moan as well as taste. I tell you It is a
comfort to get Intomuch a plnco, and in tho
far west it is surprising to find a city with
such a finished appeal ance a Lincoln."
41 You're right." added Mr. Fred A. Falken
burg. "As the representative ot a Chicago
publishing house I used to visit twonty-slx
rtates and three territories besides parts of
Canada, and I had a pretty good chanoe to
seo these United State and the principal cit
ies. Of all Alio places I saw in my trrvels
Lincoln struck mn as the most desirable for
a home, and that's how I came to locate
At tho board of trade meeting Mr. John E.
Utt of the freight bureau made a -statement
showing that tho reduction in freight rates to
Lincoln had effoctod a saving of about $200
000. Senator Ilaymond amended by putting
it at half a million. Our grocery Icing has had
long and la tlmateacqualntance with the whole
family of Jtebates, and, realizing how fast
they multiplied and grew, ho probably knows
what he Is talking about.
In the face of this great saving it is a lam
entable confession that Mr. Utt ii whistling
for .half -of Ills salary When -Utt was asked
o como to Lincoln to take charge of the
freight bureau he was general freight agent
for the .Burlington, Cedar Rapids Sc Northern
irallway with his home at Cedar Jlaplds, Iowa.
He was backed by the Rock Island, which
holds a controlling interest'in the Iowa road,
was a man of ability ana experience, was
popular among railroad men and cmld have
held his position indefinitely. He was getting
.13800 a year and iwas promised 44000 here,
but the .Increase 'Ofalarywa -only a small
part of the temptatlom to .make a change.
He had been in Lincoln before and had
strong liking for it as a place of residenoe.
He has done splendid service for Llnooln and
the territory tributary to it, and he ought not
ito have to wait lor Jits justoues.
Managing Kditor Hayes of the Journal has
been at work for nearly n year past on a his
tory of the city. Lately be associated with
himself Business Manager Cox .of the Call,
and the gentlemen are booming tho enterprise
for the almighty dollar.
There is no.question as to tho abundance of
good material or tho ability of Mr. Hayes to
collate it in a readable book, but to make a
pot of money out of it thore's the rub. Few
men iieep on hand a stock of the patriotism
that bya local hlstoryi It dosen't appeal to
one's avarice or necessities, and the best way
of reaching the pocket book of the average
man is through his vanity.
I wish Messrs Uayes and Cox well. .Most
newspaper men are poorly paid for the abil
ity and energy they bring to their business.
I want to seo tbeso gentlemen do well, and I
hope they aro not above a friendly tip. If
they want to make money they should not
wait for the public to appreciate a meritor
ious work. The public seldom docs, and pa.
tience would dad it a long timo between
That the Amerkau public likes to be hum
bugged is as true as when shrewd Barnum
first said it. Let the historians of Lincoln
profit by the examJeof those who have gone
beore them. Let them moko their work bio
graphical at so much blog. Let them in
twrt gushing twaddle uuder tho guise of bio
graphy and lithographic nightmares under
the alias of portraits. Tho average man
wants bin name to go ringing .down the con
turles (for fito years or k), and ho is willing
to pay handsomely for it. If tho "sketch"
contain the names and udigroes of his dill
dreu, live, dead and unborn, why, so much
tho more chance of getting pay.
Every man likos to seo himself In cold prin'
it it is "nice," and Iih has a sneaking con vlo-
tion that tlie world doesn't half appreciate his
uoblo qualities. After ho has read the glutt
ing adjectives plastered over several common
place and wicked neighbors at so many dol
lars for the Job, a copy ot tlie book thrown in
he concludes that ho hai been a d&iuphool
himself, and in disgust he kicks tho book Into
the tniddlo ot next week or homo other equally
inscrutable corner of oblivion.
But this should not deter my friends Hayes
and Cox. Fortunately a man is expected to
pay only for his own "idee little sketch," aud
the wise publisher C. O. D, The historians
In question may have a foolish self-respect
that objects to fathering mercenary stuff and
stuffing, but, Just think! tho whole business
will be dead and forgotten in live years and
they can again look tho world in tho face.
And then, as Walt Mason would say, think of
tho Sweet Boon it will bo to the rejorter
everytlmo an old settler dies. A loody-inode
obituary will win a reporter's heart more
unanimously than a freo lunch, and the his
torians will bo blessed for years to come as
tho bonofuctors of their craft.
Think of these things, boys.
Mr. Thomas Cook (If you don't recognize
him under this disguise you will ple&M) under
stand that it is Tom, plain Tom Cook), who
took u run east after tho legislature adjourn
al to recover some of his wasted adipose, has
returned to town and turned himself loose on
tho remnants of tho recent unpleasantness.
Ho is (insisting Chief Clerk Brad Slaughter in
getting up tho "record" of tho members of
Die House ni ltepresontntlvcs. They aro ot
work on the ofllclnl Journal, for which tho
chief clerk Is allowed (1800. Ho is to mnko n
copy to lie dejKislted In tho ofiK-o of tho secre
tary of stoto nnd n second copy to bo used by
tho prlntor. Then ho has to read tho proof
for the printed work nnd make an indox.
This work will tako a month or mora. It
looks liko handsome pay for tho job aud
prolwbly In, for legislatures havo n habit of
taking good care of oputar employes. And,
then, in tho fitness of things hnndsomo fellows
liko Brad and Tom should lw handsomely
provided for.
In past years Wait Seeley, secretary of tho
senate, hits pushed hli work through first and
monopolized tho printer's attention at tho out
set, but by nu understanding Clerk Slaughter
vtus given tho first chnnco at tho printer this
tlmo and Becctnry Seeloy has gone to Okla
homa to look over tho country.
"Thoro was a good sermon for boys in one
sentence of Brad's," said a gentleman tho oth
er day in discussing the chief clerk's little
soech on tho last day of tho legislature.
"Ho said: 'Whatever I undertake I try to do
right.' I think that is the secret of Slaught
er's success. When his Journal of tho House
proceedings is published nnd given to the
worl 1 every representative Is confident that
it Is correct and that his record Is accurately
sot forth. Brad's subordinates sometimes say
that ho is too particular because he insists on
having his house in order. If a document or
a bit ot information Is mislaid no ono is
allowed to rest until it Is found, and whon It
la subsequently called for by the bouse, often
unexpectedly, they recognise the wisdom of
his system. As a result of Ids careful work
and affable courtesy he bum been rlerk of the
House Xor nine sessions and soon becomes
United States marshal for Nebraska. Yes,
I think tbere is a good lesson in his method
for men as well as boys."
It now seems probatde that to next Senate
will have n new secretary and the House a
new clerk. Brad Slaughter's appointment as
United States marshal will take him out of
the field of availability, aud the indications
are that his mantle will fall two years tunce
on Tom Cook, who, barring his wild yearn
ing for onions, is a handy fellow to have in
the House. Tom is Abundantly able and
seems to have the "git thar" popularity.
In his little speech acknowledging the gifts
given him at the close of the legislature Walt
Seeley intimated that he did not expect to bo
secretary of the Senate again, and the infer
ence is that he k going to remove from the
state. A Republican state convention with
out him will hardly know Itself, but Walt's
plans reck not of party or legislature. His
chief .assistant, Joe Eastendar, stands In the
line of promotion. He i a exceptionally
good reader and is thoroughly familiar with
the routine of the office. But the hungry outs
will probably make a light for the place when
tho time comes.
One can't help admiring the fertile shrewd
ness of that particular comer of Semmons'
brain which keeps Its gray matter in a com
motion dovislng new advertising schemes.
Tho latest Is -a opy of the plgs-ln-clover
nightmare with livo pigs. Tho affair fills ono
of his large show windows and draws big
crowds to watch a boy whip the pigs in and
out of the pen.
Among tho coterie of newspaer mon who
have congregated In New York and sprung It
to public notice .by.their brilliant work as
special correspondents none has done more or
bettor work than Blakely Hall. He is abroad
now and one of his recent letters contains a
bit of information of special Interest to tho
Lincoln dude. Hall says it soems to him
from observation during the past year or so
in different cities of the world, that tho frock
coatjwlll be the garment of tho future. Even
lu Cuba tho mon who make a point of dress
ing well affect the frock coat. With them it
is made of the thinnest possible material, and
without any lining. There is a certain, dis
tinction ot cut which tells. The acknowledged
leaders of fashion in London have all taken
up the frock coat and are sticking to It nobly.
It is not proper to make a call or to drive in
any other. It is said in London that the frock
coat has been pushed into prominence by tho
leaders of fashion because it Is essentially a
gentleman's garment, since it is never worn
to business or by poople who troqueut the
"city." Tho fear of being mistaken for a
business man is a ghastly nightmare to tho
avorago member of a crack Loudon club. It's
an honor In this country. That's tho differ

The Sunday Hun of Sioux City, Iowa, has
been consolidated with the Saturcfuy Chron

ot tho river. Will S. Jay, who is credited
with tho paternity ot the topics department
ot the Journal, threw a breexy Individuality
Into the Sun that attracted wide attention to
the paper. Jay, who by the way has a broth
er of oar own dearly beloved Al. Fairbrother
as a partner, says Sioux City has papers
enough, that the Nebraska town is growing
rapidly and its one paper needs thler undivid
ed attention. The boys will probably make
mora clear profit by giving all their energy to
tho one paper.

A very light house greeted Miss Mattlo
Vickrrs at tho Funke, Monday evening. It
was not tho kind of a house tho llttlo lady de

Tlie now 0N3ni house to lie built by the
Modern Woodmen has lieon begun again, nnd
some enterprising iiowsaper is likely to have
it finished within o week. Prof. F. F. Ilooso
and W. T. Sawyer are tho boomers back of
tho enterprise. Tho plan uro for a building
100 by Wi at O and Fifteenth with a seating
capacity ot 2100. The front elevation shows
a stone front with ttiai nlo entrance. It also
indicates a four story structure with n cupola
surmounted by n femald figure with n shield
bearing the word "Modem Woodmen ot
America." Tho scheme Is for the Woodmen
to buy the third and fourth stories of tho
building, tho former for tho office of the order
und the latter for tho lodgo room of tho local
camps. This Is a peculiar deal, but It Is not
uncommon In the east for secret societies to
buy tho upper stories ot buildings. Tlie plans
call for a house costing $80,000 to $100,000,
and the land is valued at $30,000. An en
thusiastic Woodman says tho building will be
so far advanced that the theater can be used
during the state fair, but the projectors are
patiently waiting for neighboring property
owners to chip in the $15,000 bonus thoy are
asking for. It la said that Mr. John Kitsger
ald has been interviewed and says he will
abandon bis opera house enterprise it the oth
er is likely to be pushed through.
Manager Mclleynolds of the Funko affecta
K stoical Indifference to the new opera boute
ordinarily, but In a confidential mood he said:
"If a new house opens they'll know that
I'm around. And I can give them this point

jected the listener.
"i es, he does, in a way. Tho four houses

playing in a house that is a rival to ono of
Crawford's where the lines aro drawn is bar
red from the Kansas C ty theaters. Ot course
there Is a quid pro quo. A company may
show in an opiiosltion house at Toioka and
. have tho freedom of Crawford's circuit."
"How about Omaha!"
"Oh, Tom Boyd has the oldest and best
house, and tlie lines, are not drawn there."
It may not bo generally known that our
Bob recently had a scheme on hand to become
a managerial king himself, Dave Taggart,
then of Hustings, shared thu brilliant idea
with him, and the scheme was no less than
that of controlling a chain of theaters along
the C. B. & Q. from Burlington to Omaha.
Having learned that tlie Grand of Burling
ton. was in tho market, Bob hied himself
thither to gather it in Tho house Is com
paratively new und was built at the exxjnw
of a stock comHiuy composed of rich men,
each ot whom was allotted a private liox in
which ho expected to pose with his family or
his fi lends for the admiration of the rest of
tho audience. Consequently tlie house was
built regardless, und in its construction and
furnishing it is very fine. It is not laige but
it is u gem. An might have been expected,
the stockholders soon tired of their pretty but
oxenslvo plaything, und it became nu ele
phant of which they wuuld like to rid them
selves. They in e offering a big sacrifice to uujone
who will relieve them. Tho building alone
cost $87,.'00. They offered the intieiiy to
Mulley holds for M0, 000. They will uccept
$.00Udown and give fifteen years for the j si),
inuut of thu balance, which is Ut druw only il
per cent. Qn the other hand they offered to
lease it for ft ier cent on 1.1,000, thi hnsee to
pay tho insuiaiiLO, luxes aud steam Inviting
privilege, which would bring tho rent up to
about fiWO h j ear. After studying the sit
uation carefully the would-be monopolist if
managers concluded there was not enough in
it to puy for running the risks.
