Among other things the Weeping
Water Eagle has the following to say
about the democratic congressional con
vention: The Plattsmouth Journal says that
Harry O. Race was assistant secretary of
the convention. The only way the Eagle
can account for this hallucination ofJSher
man on the subject, is this, he must have
imbibed too freely of "Tom Noonan's
Schnaps" for several days' sickness fol
lowed him on his return from the con
yention. The writer objects howeyer to
be credited with the honor that belongs
to others. !

C. W. Sherman, that pink of purity
who presides over the Journal, cast a
mean insinuation at us, and with a great
deal of self-laudation assumes to be of a
varv hiffh moral tone. Yet he can stoop
to publish an anonymous letter about a
vounff lady of one of the best families in
the community, and with no little an
noyance to that family at that. Will tne
great journalist have the manhood to
aDolocize for that sort of business? The !
head of the family said Sherman should
have had better sense than to have pub
lished such stuff.

From Fridays Daily.
Through the courtesy of our old friend,
A. M. Story, a former resident of Cass
county but now of Hillsboro, New Mex
ico, we are in receipt of "The Silver City
Enterprise," an 8 column folio published
weekly at Silver City, Grant county, New
Mexico. It appears that that territory is
rapidly developing and the people
are pushing for statehood. The immi
gration there is heavy despite the unset
tled condition of land titles. The assess
ment for 1889 placed her property at
$50,600,000, and the tax for that year
was $420,000, the extremely low rate of
8 2-5 mills on the dollar.
The records for last year show that
over 280,000 acres of land was filed on.
She had planted in corn 57,000 acres,
yielding about 1,200,000 bushels valued
at $650,000. Within the last five years
her output of gold and silver amounts to
$23,000,000. And within the last two
years she has yielded $10,000,000 worth
of copper. One writer says of her news
papers and climate: As to newspapers I
must say they are far in advance of those
ef other territories and I have an oppor
tunity to judge of them. The editors
and managers of them are gentlemen of
brains and erudition, in high standing
and of incalculable benefit to the territo
ry. I regard New Mexico as an earthly
paradise. There nature has provided a
cure for the many diseases that human
flesh is heir to.
"The climate of New Mexico is, in my
opinion, the very best m the world. Crops
nrver fail there, and there we have no
cyclones, haTricanes, blizzards orcholer",
I there 'nature's climatic revolutions move
with undisturbed exactness and charming
equability.' The dryness and salubrity
of climafa mike New Mexico almost a
heaven for consumptives. The winters
there re very mild, and the summers arc
not hot like tl.-y are in the east. Etch
nicdit through the summer one msts nice
ly under a til mket."

they hadn't time for anything else but to

Three or four weeks ago Police Judge
Archer, upon complaint filed, found
Charley Paling guilty of being drunk
and disorderly, and imposed a fine of $ 5
and costs of prosecution amounting to
$3.75. The mayor remitted the fine, and
Paling was given until next day to pay
the costs; but instead oi paying as he
agreed, he skipped out. and remained
away till a day or two since.
Today the police judge applied to
Paling for a liquidation of the costs; but
young Paling demurred to payment,
when the judge issued a mittimus and
put it in tha hands of the marshal who
committed him to jail this afternoon.

Boston, Aug. 8. A Berious riot is in
rroirress at the state prison at Charles'
(otu. The po ice reserves of this city
h v.-e been Bent to Charlestown.
The convicts rebelled against prison
rules in the forenoon. After dinner the
prisoners marched bafck to the shops
very quietly, but hardly had they en
tered when a terrific and general yell
broke out. Windows and furniture
wera broken and the men rushed into
the yard, and the entire crowd dashed
for the various walls. The guards on
the fences fired, at first to terrify the
men, but aa several nearly gained the
top of the wall the guns vere armed to
kill. It is thought that nobody was
eM-iouslv wounded. The officers with
clubs and pointed revolvers
Held the Prisoner at Bay
until reinforcements arrived. Every
available man on the Boston force is
now at the prison and fully 300 officers
ar massed m the yard and corridors.
The guard on the walls has been more
than trepied, and au are annea wim
Winchester rifles and have instructions
to kill any man who attempts to scale
the walls. No count has as yet been
taken of the prisoners, but if is known
that many have not been retnf ned to
their cells. Some of these are known
to be hiding in the yards and work
shops, and It is thought- that one or two
may have succeeded in reaching the
outer world. Cordons of police guard

The Warden's Story.
In an interview with Warden Russell
he said the fight was the most serious
that had taken place at the prisdn for
many years. He expected trouble on
Wednesday and had police :in readiness
should any outbreak occur. Yesterday
afternoon he felt morally certain that
the crisis was at hand, and the police
were in readiness for a summons. At 3
o'clock it came from the harness ehop,
where 100 men were employed. War
den Russell at once hurried to the shop,
which was in great confusion, and
called upon those peaceably disposed to
retire to their cells. About seventy
five men complied. The others, how
ever, endeavored to reach the walls in
an attempt to escape. Capt. Gaskins
and forty-five officers now appeared,
and after a short struggle the prisoners
Under Lock and Key.
Evans' revolver has not yet been found,
but a box of cartridges was discovered
in his cell. The warden has seventy
men locked in strong cells. They will
be kept on bread and water until they
exoress their willingness to oby the
rules of the prison. During the con
fusion in the harness shop a fire was
started by some of the prisoners, but
was quickly extinguished. It is thought
that the plan of the prisoners was to
start a fire, and, in the excitement,
when the outer gates were opened to
admit the fire department, make a DreaK

Waterloo, Ia., Aug. 8. The coro
ner's inquest at Cedar Falls over the
body of D. M. Jones resulted in the ver
dict that he came to his death by a shot
feloniously fired by Deputy Marshal

the majority of citizens, but quite
u umber of the friends of Stingley claim
taat all of the story was not brought
oat and that the verdict was too severe.
Great excitement prevails throughout
