Death of Harry Steele.
From the Lincoln Journal we clip the
following account of the death ot Harry
Steele, which is given more fully than
was priutc-d in the IIehald yesterday:
'"Shortly after midnight yesterday
Harry Steele, employed us u freight
brakeman on the li. & M., received in
juries at Chalco, a short distance this
Bide of Omaha, from which lie died in
about five hours. lie was working on a
westbound freight train. The train had
been cut in two. Steele was on the for
ward portion, to which the engine was
attached, and while it was backing
walked off the end opposite the engine.
1 lis body fell outside the track, but the
advancing wheels passed over both
thighs. It is said that Steele endeavored
even then to pull his legs from the cars,
but the wheels of the next truck passed
over both ankles. He was put into the
way car at once and brougct to Lincoln
with all possibje 6peed. At 2 o'clock
Dr. Everett reached him, but was power
less j aid him and he died at G o'clock
in tlfceway car, from which it was im
jsible to remove him. The deceased
was formerly employed at the Depot
hotel and made his headquarters in this
city since beginning work for the com
pany. He was about 22 years old, and
has a brother employed as a Burlington
conductor in this city. His remains were
taken east yesterday afternoon for inter
ment at Lafayette, Ind., where his par
ents reside, the brother accompanying
A Surprise Party.
Tuesday evening about twenty friends
ofGuy Vandevoort got together at the
home of Miss Mattie Smith, and at right
o'clock they proceeded in a body to the
Vandevort mansion, where Master Guy
was indeed completely surprised. A de
lightful evening was had by the young
folks and when Mrs.V. crowned the event
with a delicious repast, all agreed it was
pleasant to be there. The particular
occasion for the party was a sort of a
general good bye and happy send off for
the young man who will soon be a resi
dent of Somerset, Ky. Those present
were Masters Harry Miller, Glen Carruth,
Henry Snyder, Hal Johnson, James
Newell, Frank Ballance, Tom Chapman,
Joe Knotts, Luke Wiles and Charles Sul
livan. The young ladies were Alice
Peterson, Anna Sullivan, Clair Green,
Minnie Doane, Sue Mathews, Lottie
Cooper, SMattie Smith and Alice Miller,
Miss Mary Egenberger at Denver on
' Monday evening of this week of moun
tain fever after an illness of only four
days. The deceased was a sister of J. V.
Egenberger, jr., of this city and was
born in Germany 22 years ago. She
came to this country about four years
ago and spent the first two years in this
ciJ7, the last two she lived in Omaha.
About four weexs ao she made up her
mind to go to Denver for her health
which seemed to be on the decline and
how unfortunate her trip was hi a already
been told. The remains were brought in
on the flyer last evening and the funeral
which was largely attended took place at
ten o'clock this morning from the Catho
lic church. Rev. Father Carney officiating.
A father and t-everal sisters in Germany
together with one brother here, are left

Connell and Bryan at Wahoo.
Wahoo, Neb. Oct. 10, Special Tele
grain to the Bee. The greatest political
eyent of this season in Saunders coanty
occurred here today. It was the joint
discussion between Hon. W. J. Connell
and W. J. Bryan. The discussion oc
curred in the opera house and the build
ing was taxed to its utmost capacity, even
stauding room being at a premium, and
many went away unable to gain admis
sion. Bryan had tke opening, and occu
pied forty. five minutes in denouncing
the McKinley bill, and was applauded
but sparingly. Mr. Connell on' taking
the platform was cheered to the echo.and
for one and a half hours he discussed
the tariff bill, thesilyer bill and reviewed
the work of the last session of congress
in a masterly way. and was continually
applauded and greeted with round after
round of etieers. He had the sympathy
f the audience and it was said by many
who heard the speeches at Lincoln and
Omaha that Connell discounted his
former efforts, and Mr. Bryan frankly
admitted that his opponent made tha
best argument he had yet mr.de in the
joint discussion, and that he had the best
of it. It is freely conceded by all that
Mr. Connell carried away the lion's
share of the honors and will receive
again a handsome majority at the hands
of Saunders county people, whom he
formerly represented as district attorney.
TilK windy Bryan in his Omaha speech
had much to say about the democratic
party w hich he would so honestly and
fairly represent, if he were eleclel to
congress. He was singing a different
tune from what he sung in Plattsmouth
when he sawed the nir and proclaimed
his independent e of lhe democratic cau
cus whose rule -hould NEVER bind him
It was a different kind of an audience
and the ''independent" rot which he
sometime dispenses was not suited for the
the Omaha faithful.

A Base Falsehood.
From Fridays Daily.
The following clipped from the Weep
ing Water Eagle shows to what extent
the reformers (?) will go to make a point
in their favor. The B. & M. foremen do
not try to vote their men and could not
do it if they did. The easiest way to
defeat a measure in the shops would be
for the foremen to attempt to dragoon
their men into the support of a particu
lar man or measure. The foremen have
too much sense and respect for the opin
ions of those about them to even think
of such a proceeding:
Plattsmouth, October 8. is;o.
Editor Eayle. ' It is understood around here
that ail the men in the B. & M. chops are goini:
to vote the old ticket, but it ii because they
cannot he!p themselves. The company have
Kottliemby the neck and they tell them to
vote their way or net out. so the laborer will
have it to do. a La korkb,
Irom Cot'onwood Alliance.
The tendency of the above writer is
toward democratic campaign oratory, his
methods and style are peculiarly demo
cratic; the distance from the truth, and
the careless manner that he shows in
drawing on his imagination, marks him
as a coming man for stump oratory. He
should stop writing squibs under a nom
de plume and join Bryan at once.
Democratic Club Meeting:.
The democratic club met in the court
house Wednesday eyening. Judge Den
nis Dwyer weighted with the dignity of
the position presided. T. T. Wilkenson
whose familiar name is Tom, stepped to
the front and delivered an eloquent
democratic speech that was calculated to
set the boys on fire. The boys shook the
house with their generous applause.
Charley Butler and Guy Livingston were
fairly beside themselyes with delight
at the discovery of the new democratic
orator; Henry Gering raised the ehingles
with applause and wanted to challenge
Tom Reed or McKinley either one. While
the excitement was at white heat Judge
Dwyer announced that the especial feat
ure of the evening would now be listened
to in the form of a speech by the able
and talented leader of the young democ
racy, Guy Livingston Esq. The ap
plause wasdeafen eing as Guy with studi
ous mien stepped forward and launched
into the republican party like an old
. He had not trayelled far until he
struck out on prohibition rending the
air with facts and figures. He closed
his eloquent effort by telling about Iowa
He said that not long since a man went
down to an Iowa drug store about 2
o'clock in the moming and while he was
fooling aronnd there his wife died, there
says Guy is Iowa prohibition for you as
he clinched the argument by striking the
table with his fist. And the crpwd de
lighted with the point, fairly roared
all except Tom Wilkinson who sighed
wearily and rose up slowly and inquired
if there was a prohibitionist Jpresent?
Each waited for the other and there was
no response. Mr. W said he wonld pol
ish Livingston off in short order and a
heavy pall began to settle down over the
once joyous crowd but czar Dwyer was
equal to the occasion and stated Wilken
son who had so enthused the crowd a
few minutes before could not be heard;
trouble was brewing and the chair wa
DECEITFUL AS USUAL.
The Omaha W orld Herald is becoming
more amusing every day. Yesterday it
discussed the wire nail at length, saying
that the indusMy of making these nails
was started a f w years ago, and reached
large proportions t ithout a tariff.
Further it says: "enormous amount of
nails are used on farms and the farmer
hud this one thing that did not have a
direct tariff on it, and it flourished with
out it. But Mr. McKinley huad of it,
and he saw thai it would never do to
have an industry flourish without a tar
iff to help it. That wou'd ruin the
whole theory of high protection. To
preyent this thing going any further,
Mr. McKinley claps a tariff on wire nails
of 2 cents a pound."
The facts are that previous to 1883
wire nails weiv free of duty, were nearly-
all imported and cost from 0 to 8 cents
per pound. In 1883 a tariff of four
cents per pound was levied, and th W.
H. yesterday quoted these nails at $2.75
per 1UU pounds. .Mr. -McKinley does
'clap a tariff if 2J cents a pound" on
wire nails, but it is to supercede a duty
of 4 cents a pound .
riir; industry did "reach large propor
tions without a tantr, hut it was in
England, and the fellows who made the
nails exacted n burdi nsome profit from
us until we built up ur own rail mills
on this side of the water.
