The editor of the Journal has cul
tivated the very unmanly habit of
approaching republicans who chance to
open up conversation with their demo
cratic friends on the streets, and contra
dieting their statements when his advice
is uncalled for. Last night the eye doc
tor opened up on a staunch democrat and
was stringing out facts to him so rapidly
that it made his head ewim. C. Whop
per chanced to pass that way and not
being content at minding his owu busi
ness, advised the professor's hearers
to move on and not pay any attention to
liiiu as he did not know what he was
talking about. C. W. by so saying re
lieved his democratic brethren and took
the whole responsibility upon his own
shoulders. If the Prcfessor had had a
pair of smoked glasses in his pockets he
would haye presented tliem to him, for
any covering for his sheep eyes at th.it
time would nave proved a great relief.
Mr. S. wa3 knocked out in the first
round, and we trust that eucIi a lessen
will do him good. The democrats
would thank him if he would keep t n
his own side of the street and did not

It is estimated that there were over

also that there were over 25,000 people
on the streets.
The Glenwood ladies club secured
the prize, which was a silver water set
valued at $100, for being the best dril
led and finest appearing ladies club at
Council Bluffs last night. If a subscrip
tion paper had been circulated in behalf
of the ladies club over the river the night
they afforded the republicans such a pleas
ant surprise here, there is no doubt that
five times that amount could have been
raised here without an effort. We most
heartily congratulate them on their

The fifteen months old son of Mr.

a very peculiar illness. The child has
been quite sick for some time and has

that the entire body became perfectly
discolored and resembled that of a color

the first case of the kind ever known
here i before. The cause is unknown.

A German-American Anti-prohibi
tion meeting was held in Rockwood hall
last Saturday night. The B. & M. band
was engaged for the purpose of calling a
crowd, and they succeeded as the house
was crowded to its utmost capacity. Mr.
J. V. Weckbach was appointed chairman
of the meeting, and in a few well chosen
words introduced the Hon. W. S. Shoe
maker, of Omaha, as the first speaker. In
his speech he strongly denounced the ac
tions ot the republican party in the
adoption of the submission plank, stating
that such an act was not necessary. He
advanced the argument that the people

CITIES IN WEDLOCK.
TheOpenlngof the New Iron Blidge
Uniting Council Bluffs and
Motive Power From Electricity.
About a year ago contracts were let
and operations began for the erection of
a bridge over the Missouri river between
Omaha, Nebraska, and Couucil Bluffs,
Iowa, to accommodate the growing pass
enger and commercial traflic between
tliose two cities; the budge to be built
for motor cars propelled by electricity,
with wagon and foot ways to either side
of the bridge.
During the fall and winter months deep
casions were sunk and piers erected, and
as the spring and summer months of this
year advanced, the piers of iron and solid
masonry, which rested on solid rock be
neath, were made to bear up the trcssel-
work for an iron bridge, the bud of en
thusiasm started by the announcement
of the bridg cproject burst into a flame of
excitement. Real estate rect ived the
first impetus, and building and general
business improvement followed.
Yesterday was the day set apart for the
opening of the bridge to the public
characterized as a wedding day of cities
(united for good or bad, prosperity or
depression of business). It was a day of
jubilee for all the rival spirit of years
past was suddenly changed to a feelin
of brotherly loye and "good in common"
The street in Couucil Bluffs leading to
the bridge was paved completely so one
can travel from the bridge into Iowa
four miles and a half over cedar block
and stone payement without materially
changing his direction. In Omaha the
bridge opens on Douglas street. The
tlouble track for the electric motor cars
extends from Omaha to the M. E. church
on upper Broadway in Council Bluffs, a
distance of about four miles. The elec
tricity is generated at the electric house
about one mile cast of the bridge and is
I, lulls Welcomes Omaha." Suspended
from the trusses of the center span of the
bridge was an immenrse ring, covered
with bunting and flags, bearing the in
scription, "Truly Wed." Under this
riog the carriages of Governors Larrabee
and Thayer were driven beside each other.
Mr. Thomas Baldwin, as master of cere
monies, now stepped forward and
requested the revcrened Bishop Newman
to pronounce an invocation, which he
did, invocing God's blessing npon the
two cities so auspiciously brought
together. John T. Stewart was intro
duced, and made a short address.
At this junction the scene on the bridge
was a grand and magnificent sight. Here
stood the governors of two great states,
surrounded by their staff officers. These
officers, in their rich and magnificent
uniforms, mixed with the civilians, made
a most impressive and gorgeous picture
one that will not soon be forgotten by
those who were fortunate enough to be
Governor Thayer made an address on
behalf of the people of Nebraska, but the
screeching of steam whistles, cheers of
the people and sharp crack of firearms,
made it impossible to hear much of what

THE NEXT LEGISLATURE.
There is no doubt about the designs of
the democratic leaders of the McShane
clique; while they make war on Gov.
Thayer, they do not expect to defeat him
but they do hope to capture t lie legisla
ture of this state. This is fi ir detign
and money is being freely placed to ac
complish that object. This would insure
the return of John A. McShane to the
United States senate from Nebraska and
with a like gain in another quarter the
senate of the United States would become
democratic and the solid srath bi again
restored to its ancient inheritance of the
full and complete control of this govern
ment. Then should Mr. ILiriisoii be
elected he would be poweiless to act.
Dakota would be kept out of the union
and four years from now the political
status of the country would be precisely
as it is today. Mr. Harrison as president
and the republicans in possession of con
gress the rights of Dakota would be
recognized, two new republican states
would be added to the union and democ
racy with its free trade; its ballot box
stuffing; its southern system of Mexican
ization, would be relegated to the back
ground never to figure again in American
affairs until it was reorganized on a plat
form in harmony with our free institu-

At tins juncture Mrs. Rohrer and Mrs.

two cities together.
The procession then returned to Coun

home. Driving to Bayliss park in Coun

from their carriages and the bridge com

and honestly unite on our legislative
ticket? If the policy of supporting
McShane democrats by leading republi
cans in Cass county because of disappoint
ments in controlling nominations, is to
prevail, it would be well to abandon the
party organization at once. If a man
stands back, sulks over the nominations,
saying, "Oh yes I will support the ticket
but I don't like the nominees" he is in
point of fact throwing his weight and
influenca against the ticket and his party.
This is poor polities, it is not square
dealing, for if a nomination is fit
to be supported at all, it is fit to
be supported honestly nnd
bravely; especially by the leaders of a
