W. 13. Jones has sufficiently recovered
from that dread disease, rheumatism, to

bidder a stock of second hand goods
which he was selling this forenoon.
The work on the new B. & M. shops at
Ilavelock was commenced yesterday and
the Lincoln Journal says if nothing takes
place to cut short the development, of
that suburb, 10,000 people will be there
in three years.
County Clerk Critchfield and Commis

The railroads that have been cutting

BluPs precinct was making his returns to
day to the county clerk. Mr. Pittman
returned ft valuation of $t 8,000 more in j

out of improvements made during the j

W. S. Cleveland, of minstrel fame, is
a liberal manager, still, on business pi in- i
Viplfs. he is never guilty of paying i
inore than a just value. In negotiating
V with one of his performers he figured
very closely, and the sum at which the
artist was engaged was not quite up to
that exalted individual's opinion of his
financial worth, and he made the fact
known in forwarding his portrait, writ
ing, "Enclosed find my photograph, it
is as well as I can afford to look for the
money." Cleveland appreciated the
point. See them Saturday night at the
London, May 29, (special ) A banquet
will be given tomorrow by American
residents in London, to Henry M. Stanley
at the Portiuan rooms. John C. New,
the United States consul, will preside in
the absense of Minister Lincoln, who is
in retirement since the death of his son.
Miss Zjunaut will also be present. It is
thought probable that Stanley will take
occasion, when responding to a toast, to
state delinately whether or not he is an
American citizen, and also inform the
assemblage of the land that can truth
fully claim nim as her product. The in
vitations have been limited to 400 and
they include the members of the Lega
tion aud the leading Americans now in
London. He goes to New Castle next
week to receive the freedom of that city.
The day opened up very sultry and
warm, and although it was cloudy and
Sprinkled rain every once in a while, the
preparations for services at the cemetery
went on unabated and the procession
formed on Main street at 2 o'clock and
marched to the cemetery headed by the
"Woman's Relief Corps and little girls
carrying flowers to decorate the graves;
then came the drum corps followed by
G. A. R-, Sons of Veterans, and a com
ranv of small boys, then followed a
large number of citizens in carriage and
wagons. As the ceremonies were held
too late for todays' paper, we will give
further proceedings tomorrow.
Yesterday Mr. Wm. Brakhage made
application to the county judge for the
requisite document to claim Miss Julia
Meieryurgen as his own. When interro
gated as to bis age, the judge elirited
the fact that William was one year short
of man's estate, i. e., be had not reached
his majority, and that either written or
verbal consent of parents or guardian
would be required before a license could
be issued. Thereupon William applied
to his step mother at South Bc;nd for her
consent to the marriage, and that was
not received until 11 o'clock toda
when Judge Ramsey very gracefully
pronounced the words which made them
husband and wife.

gravations and difficulties to which

London, June 2. The syndic of
Venice has created a sensation and
aroused popular indignation by the
work of modernizing, a:id consequently
vandalizing, the square of San Marco,
in front of the cathdral of that name,
really the only cien space of any size in
the city of the doges. Popular protest
seems to be of little avail, however, and
the work is to be pushed as rapidly as
possible. The improvements will neces
sitate the removal of many objects in
teresting to the visitor because of their
ancient origin and historic associations.
London, June 2. Leprosy has in

upon that ground. It is known, how
ever, that appointments of this kind are
few, and even in the case of a colored

The superintendent is not given any dis

ligatory upon him to report each and
every person who fails to comply with
the requirements of the law to the proper
persons, who will institute a vigorous
prosecution against the violators of it
and they become liable to a fine of 100.
It is thought that some trouble will Im

The River and Harbor 15 i 11.
Washington, June 2. The absence
from the city of Senator Frye, the chair
man of the commerce committee, has
delayed the consideraf ion of the river
and harbor bill on the senate side of the
Capitol. The delay is not all serious, as,
with the silver bill and the tariff bill
hanging fire, it is not likely the river
and harbor bill will have much chance
of being considered within the next
month. Senator Frye will return to the
city on Tuesday of this week, and the
committee will then begin in earnest the
consideration of the bill. It has been
determined that no hearings will be
given to the representatives of the dif
ferent interests atfected by the bill, but
members of the senate will be given
hearings on the improvements asked by
their states. The bill will be taken up
in the order of the appropriations, ami
the hrst week will probably be con
sumed in debating the appropriations
for New England. The Pacitic coast
comes at the bottom of the list, and it
will be last considered. There is very
little doubt that the bill will pass the
senate, probably with the appropria
tions materially increased. It will be in
conference for some time, but will doubt
less go the president before the adjourn
ment of congress.
The Co:it;urs.joiial Forecast.
Washington. .June 2. The senate
will resume to-day the suspended silver
debate. Senators Pugh,- Aldrich and
Sherman are booked for long speeches,
and as a gre.:t many other senators de
sire to be heard, no limit to the debate
can be fixed. 1c is likely to be suspend
ed once or t'.rie during the week to per
mit the dicivj- ion of bills from the com
mittee on appropriations. In the house
the silver bill agreed upon by the Re
publican caucus of the house will be
dissected during the week in committee
of the whole. The bill will be called up
probably on Wednesday, and the rest of
the week will be consumed in debating
it. It cannot be definitely stated that
the bill will be acted upon before the
end of the week. Tuesday has been set
apart for the consideration of the con
tested election of McDufne (Rep.)
against Turpin (Dem.), from Alabama.
The Republican majority of the elec
tions committee has declared in favor of
seating McDufne, and there is no doubt
that this will be done.
