Yesterday Peter Perry of Eight Mile

the circus. He hitched his team on Vine

get his dinner he found some one had
appropriated his dinner and box which
contained it, so Mr. Perry and his folks
had to go hungry.

They gave two exhibitions, one in the
forenoon and one in the evening, both
of which were largely patronized by
both city and country people, and all
were loud in pronouncing it the grandest
success they ever saw in the way of a
show. Under one large canvas were two
large rings and a large elevated platform
all of which were occupied constantly
with the most brilliant performances
over given in this city. It was, indeed,
the small boys' paradise, and some of the
large one's too, for it was observed that
the attractions did not fail to draw from
all classes. It will be many a day before

I The Parade Today.
The first day of the Nebraska State
Firemen's tournament was a su cess a?
far as the races were concerned, but the
attendance was miserably poor, owing
largely to the fact that the ciirus held a
lare crowd from attending, but today
the management expects better patro

In the Green Hook an l Ladder race
there were two entries, the Nebraska City
team and Plattsmouth team. The Ne
braska City team whs the first to start
It stitrted and the harness broke, causing
a little delay, but the break was soon
mended and they came down the track
in 51 i. The Plattsmouth team then
made the run in 50 seconds. When Geo.
Scott, the man that climbs the ladder,
reached the top and had started down,
the men lost control of the ladder and
let it fall with Scott, he lighting on his
side, but fortunately he escaped unhurt.
In the chiefs' race there were five en
tries A. Rothman, of York, winning
the 25 bidge in 11 seconds, and George

Portland. Oregou, June 17, 1890.
Editor Herald: In my last letter 1
promised to tell you some things about
Portland, the largest and most important
city in the state of Oregon. It is beauti
fully situated on a plateau which grad
ually increases in height till a range of
hills are formed in the western part of
the city, and is also on the west bank of
the Willamette riyer, fifteen miles from
its mouth, fifty miles northeast of Salem
and 120 miles from the mouth of the
Columbia river. The city is well built,
the houses being mostly made of wood.
It is a large commercial town, both
wholesale and retail, and the prices dif
fer but little from the prices in Omaha.
From the range of hills west of the
city a magnificent view is obtained of
the snow-cappeil mountains in the dist
ance, Hood, Jefferson and St. Helen
and the range of the Cascade mountains.
The windings of the Columbia and Wil
lamette rivers is, indeed, a beautiful
Portland has a population ef about
25,000; is at the head of ship navigation
on the Willamette and is the center of a
large growing trade with the north and
west of it . A line of steamships connects
the city with San Francisco, also to the
Sounds, up North Arab road from Seattle
and Taconia, thence Portland to San
Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sandiego
bay. With all these advantages in its
favor it will soon become one of the
largest cities on the western coast and in
point of wealth I suppose few cities com
pare with it. If I was to select a place
on the western coast as a home it would
be here but I think when I get home old
Cass will be good enough for me as I
have failed to find a place as yet that
sec-m3 like home. The first rain since
last March is faliing now. The very dry
weather has occasion hard times to some
extent as this is the third year of drouth
and crops have been short. The valleys,
this year will yield only about two-thirds
of a crop.
I will now stop for the present and as
ray next stop will be at Seattle and Ta-
coma on the Sounds, you may hear from
mo again in the near future.

I have stated in my notes before that
I believe the officers of a state the best
judges of its laws aud their influence on
the state. So I cive a letter from m
Larrabe written when he was the high
est officer in the state. Please read what
the governor says:
Des Moines, la., Feb. 10, 189.
Rev. Fuller. Aberdeen: Your com
munication of recent date at hand ant;
noted. In reply I desire to say that the
prohibitory law in Iowa has much moie
than answered the best expectations o
its former most hopeful advocates. As
regards the assertion that prohibition has
driven people.ont of the state, I think
not a person has left the state on account
of prohibition whom it is desirable to
have return. Many of those engaged in
the saloon and liquor business and such
persons as are usually attracted by these
in-erests have left, and the state is large
ly the gainer thereby. The cheap lands
of the states and territories west of us
have induced a greac many enterprising
j aud yaluable citizens to emigrate, inde-
dependent of any influence of prohibition.
: There has been a steady growth in our
population, and the census of 1890 will
probably show in Iowa at lbast 2,000.000
I inhabitants. The yote at the last elect-
ion shows an increase of 65,320 over the
caiucuuw ui xo-x acw.c u-
j crease than the election of 1884 showed
j over that of 1880
j As to the depreciation of real estate
( occasioned by prohibition, it is the sheer
est nonsense. Values have, I believe,
been sustained in Iowa as well as in the
adjoining states where prohibition is not
the rule. The same causes that have
effected values elsewhere have undoubt-
eai-v i,aa t,le,r eUeot nere- Crol)S 2row
,,trds multiply, and the markets of the
world continue open to us me same as
before, and why should business suffer?
Money is now spent for the necessaries
of life and legitimate uses instead of
being spent at the saloon.
The banking business of a state is per
haps as fair a barometer of business as
can be found. The number of banks in
the state has been increased from 180 in
1883 to 244 in 18S8; deposits have in
creased from $27,231,719.74 to $39,985
362.08 in 1888.
I think more than half of the jails in
the state are entirely empty at the pres
ent time. There are 98 less convicts in
our penitentiaries than there were three
years ago, notwithstanding- the growth
of population. Expenses in criminal
courts have decreased very largly during
the last few years. I send you with this
a copy of a collection of letters from the
district judges of our state, which will
show you that the testimony is over
whelmingly in favor of the law. More
recent statements from them would no
doubt show still more favorable results.
Tramps are very scarce in Iowa.
There are evidently very few attractions
for them here. Probably more than
3,000 of their recruting stations have
been closed during the last five years.
The wives and mothers of the state, es
pecially those of small means, are almost
unanimously in favor of the law. The
families of laboring men now receive
the benefits of the earnings that formerly
went to the saloons. There is no quest
ion in my mind but what the law is
doing good for the people.
My views heretofore advanced in
favor of the law are strengthened end
confirmed by added experience. Our
people are more determined than eyer to
make no compromise with the saloons.
The lawr has more friends in the .state
than it eyer had before, and I am satis
fied that no state can show results more
If you carry the prohibitory amend
ment, say the whiskey men, you will in
crease the burden of taxation, which is
now almost heavier than the people can
bear. A comparison of the rate of tax
ation for state purposes in Kansas and
Nebraska for the years 1880 to 1889, in
clusive, will show how utterly groundless
this argument is . It will be remembered
that Nebraska adopted high license jnst
about the same time that Kansas adopted
prohibition. After a nine years' trial of
the two systems, how do they compare
as to thtir effect on taxation?
In 1880 the rate of taxation in Ne
braska was 39 cent3 and 5 mills on one
hundred dollars. Ia Kansas it was 55
cents, or 15 cents and 5 mills more than
in Nebraska. The followsn? table will
show the steady increase in the rate
under high license in Nebraska and de
crease under prohibition in Kansas, We
hope our readers will study this table
Thus, while Kansas began the period
with a rate of 15 cents aud 5 mills on
the hundred dollars higher tlmn Ne
braska, it has steadily decreased, and
our 6tate has steadily increased, until now
our state taxes are not only 23 cents and
3 mills higher than in Kansas, but are
23 cents and 8 mills higher than when

the state adopted prohibition.
In other words, while prohibition has
reduced taxation in Kansas S8 cents and
8 mills, high license has increased it in
Nebraska 23 cents and 8 mills. So
much for the argument that prohibition
increases taxation. In the next issue we
shall compare the two systems as to their
effect on crime.
MOTOR CARS DURING STORMS.
They Will Hereafter Remain Motion
less In Omaha While Thunder
The trolley wire for the Harney street
motor line has arrived, and the work of
stringing it will be begun at once.
The loss sustained by the company
during the Sunday night storm is not so
great as was nt first supposed, and it is
thought that $ GOO will repair all dam
Hereafter, the company proposes to see
that no damage will result on such occa

machinery will be stopped, all connect

This they think will be more satisfactory
to all parties.

Bought the Box.
Yesterday as farmer Rusterholtz, who
lives about eight miles southwest of the
city, was on his way to see the show and
tournament he was met some distance
out on the road by two youns: men, who
topped and engaged Mr. Rusterholtz in
conversation, exhibiting to him a small
paper box containing $G0 in glittering
gold, in plain view of course, and of
fered to sell it to him for 30. The
fa mcr saw a golden opportunity to
make his three gold eagles and could
not withstand the temptation to buy
that little box; so reaching for his replete-
wallet he closed the deal by handing
over to the smooth young man the $30
and took his box, full of gold as he sup
posed, and the interview was at an end,
for the slippery pair had business else
where. It is hardly necessary to say that
this box, like most other little paper
boxes lying around loose, was empty
when its owner came to open it. It
seems unnecessary to warn people against
such swindlers, for the papers all over
the country are full of such tricks, and
have been since the mind of man runneth
not to the contrary. Yet men of reason
able intelligence and judgment pfirsist in
