The reminiscent l'nt 0. Howes of Omaha
was in tho city tho other day, nnd ns usual
turned tho flash of his dark lantern memory
upon tho political history of tho state, l'nt
bo been a power In lolltlcs. Ho hni mailo
and unmade moro men than Mr. Rosewnter
nnd tho lite oven, nnd ho knows moro of tho
inside of polltlcnl deals than any other man
in Nebraska. Some peoplo will smile incred
ulously at these statements, but Bye-the-Bye
has the best of authority for making them.
They como direct from l'nt himself, and when
it comes to politics ho knows.
l'nt is an interesting character for nn ap
preciative listener. He is 11 Kentucklnn, by
the way, which may nccount for some things.
But ho went Into the war on tho Union side.
It beenmo his duty to tnko homo tho body of
tho colonel of his regiment, and ho then first
met tho family of his ilenil superior. Tlio ac
quaintance led to a closer Intimacy, and in
due time l'nt, then n captain, mm rled one of
the colonel's daughters. On tho dentil of tho
mother he took several small children under
bis protection. Among them wns nn infant
girl, who nfter living in his fnmlly for nbout
twenty yenrs beenmo Mrs. Kent Hayden of
Pat has mode a great denl of money in his
time. Ho came to Nebraska twenty-odd
years ago, nnd two-thirds of his winters have
been spent in Washington pushing claims
through congress and tho various depart
ments. One of his first schemes occurred
near tho close of tho war. A Inrgo number
of quartermaster's voucheiB wero flouting
around in pnrts of Kentucky for wnnt of
money to redeem them. l'nt conceived tho
idea of buying up a lot ut n discount nnd tak
ing his chances of getting them cashed. Ho
went to n town near by whero ho had teen
a provost mnrshnl nnd wns well liked ami
mnde n draft on his father nt Louisville for
(15,000. Ho succeeded in getting It cashed
and immediately bought up about $18,000
worth of vouchers. lie rusbeddownto Louis
ville and through his army connections sue
ceeded in getting tho money on his vouchers
just in time to savo his draft from being pro
tested. It was n smart stroko for a young
fellow, a fine bit of lobbying, nnd Pnt has
never overcome a tnsto lor tiint kind or work.
Our hero wns one of n small party from
Omaha nt the laying of the corner stone of
the old cnpltol. They drove in cnrrlnges
down the Iown side of the river to Platts
mouth, thence across country to Lincoln,
taking threo days for tho trip. Put bought
fort v -two lots in Lincoln for nbout ?2,WW.
Shortly afterwards a man living in Johns
town, Pa., got a list of the lot and olrered to
buy . Tho sale was made at $5,000. Years
afterwards rat received a letter from J . u.
McMurtry asking what ho would tnke for his
interest in a certnin lot thnt had been sold for
taxes. He denied owning n lot here. While
, in tho city subsequently ho looked Into the
matter and found that the lot; hnd bo- u omit
ted by the Johnstown mun in mnklug his list
Pat wrote to Johnstown, but wns informed
that his patron hnd been dend live yenrs.
Hnwes then sold the lot to Mr. McMurtry,
who presumably redeemed it.
Perry Heath, tho Washington correspond
ent of tho lice, is giving an excellent report
of tho South Dakota constitutional cotiven
tion. Heath is ono of tho best correspond
ents in newspaper row at the national cap!
tal. His letters to the lite aro full and rella
able, nnd nro ono of tho vnlunble fentures of
thnt journal which no other paper in this sec
tion of the country lias been able to approach.
His correspondence has tho merit, too, of be
ing signed. Thnt puts the writer on his met
tle to bo fnir, nccurnto nnd nlert. Tho paper
gets tho benefit of tho extra effort, because
,ts correspondence iuvites tho trust of its
readers and gives it a strong hold on their
confidence nnd, presumably, their patron
age. Heath's letters from tho Sioux Fnlls con
vention to tho lice have twice tho Interest und
value of anonymous communications, because
they comenvith n personal authority that has
established itself in the respect and esteem of
tho lice's renders.
Heath is not only ono of tho best corre
spondents in Washington, but ho is ono of tho
busiest nnd most prosperous. In nddition
to the lice he serves daily papers nt Indianap
olis, Pittsburgh nnd Columbus, Ohio, and it is
estimated that his Income, from theso four
sources is $100 n week or moro. He also does
the executivo sessions of the Senate for the
UnitedtPreM, nnd may do special work on tho
side, though how he llnds time to do it nil isn
mystery. It is said that ho lias marto prollt
able investments in Washington property nnd
is doing exctedlngly well llnnncinlly.
At tho press bnnquet recently given by Mr.
Rosewnter. Mr. Heath Btnted that his instruc
tions when ho began tho Washington bureau
wero to wire three or four hundred words
dally. In a short time ho was notified that lie
might send 1,000 words, and subsequently tho
limit was removed entirely. Ho also suited
that ho had never been dictated to as to any
policy to bo pursued. His order was to send
the news without fear or favor. There seem
to be an impression abroad thnt every subor
dinate of Mr. Rosewnter is under instructions
to hew to n policy bo wants carried out. The
observation and exjienenco of tho writer, af
ter a year's connection with tho lice, are that
the general impression is wholly wrong. As
the lice correspondent for tho state Senate
last winter ho expected tho dictation so much
talked of.' Happening to meet two corre
spondents together n day or two after an Item
had been covered by both, Mr. Roewnter
suggested that they compare notes nnd thus
avoid duplicating news. That wns the near
est approach to dictation from him. In fact
it was the only instance during the session in
which ho gave any instiuction. Of course
editorial writers aro expected to carry out tho
policy of tho editor-ln-chlcf, but tiio orders of
reporters nnd correspondents nro to get the
news nnd give the facts without prejudice,
color or comment. Indeed, there is a special
and oft-empbusized order against injecting
reportorial opinions into news Items. Mr.
Rosewnter nnd tho lite nro proline subjects
for newspnper comment, by tho way, They
nro such jKwerful fnctors In Nebraska's nf-
fairs, material ns well ns polltlcnl, nnd -Mr.
Rosewnter hns such n pervnslvo personality
that they aro perennial in their interest.
Ex-Oov. Furnas, secretary of tho Stnte
Fair association, has Issued a circular explain
ing tho arrangements for transportation nnd
Indicating some of the specinl attractions al
ready engaged for tho coming fair. Freight

I was tempted to start a roll of honor with

noticed a young lady in tho dress circle also

to omit her from the list, but I don't
happen to know her name. If women only

Sho therefore offered them for snlo prlvntely,

glvo hur commissions to pick up choice bits for
them, Then sho h'gnn to buy for herself
where she sawn nice little margin of prollt.
From n single counter she advanced nnd took
hnlf the store, which sho soon hnd lllled with
articles for sale on commission, or rare pieces
which she herself had purchased. Then she
began to go enst nud flunlly to Europe to pur

tho buyer nnd n commission from the seller.
