Himlnt Bryan and Smythe Tried to
Entort'Wn an Audience at the
Opera House Last Niht.
l'ro 11 Satur(layn Daily.
The iniich iidvertined Bryan appeared
before 11 jooi Hudiciu'u at the opera
liou.ic last evt-niiiy iu company with
luilj'e irii::s of Columbus, the demo
cratic nominee for attorney general, Col.
Bmythe and Frank Morrissey of Omuhn.
County .Tudic llamsey presided, while
tSam'l Waiigb, Col. Peter E. Uuffiiir,
Mr. Otitsclie, Hon. Win. Neville, lion. J.
M. 1'atttrnon, W. II. Gushing, Col. J. A.
Connor, Col. Peterson and Col.
Sherman of the Journal acted as
a Ktno setting to the entertain
ment and applauded lustily on the
slightest provocation. Judge lUmsey
presented Mr. Higgins who in evidently
a very pleasant gentleman hut his speech
was one of the most insipid listlers point
less affairs we have heard during the
present campaign. As a sample of some
of his statements which we took down
ut the time, the following shows the ten
or and depth of the argument he was
trvimr to use and the wide divergence
between what he said and the facts.
Mr. lliggins says: "Christianity start
ed "out 1800 hundred years ago w ith the
ten commandments and the Lords prayer
and has been whooping it up to the boys
ever since." The point he was trying to
illustrate need not be mentioned when it
is seen that a little itemtw o thousand years
from the truth on his ten commandment
start, was likj most of the remark of
the evening, latgely made up of
misquotations of facts or the mani Ty
ing of immaginary evils. 4
After the Judge had ground out his
grist, the sacred IJryan, with the melli
fluoua voice, made his bow to the audi
ence, which received the gentleman so
recently from Illinois with marks of ap
probation. The first chestnut was,
"Where I stand on prohibition," and as
lie said his piece on that point, Tom
Wilkenson was noticed to move restless
ly in his chair and look imploringly
about him for comfort but it never
came. Since Guy Livingston in a tragic
manner tried to dress him down, Wilkin
son begins to feel like an orphan in strange
land. But re musj not digress; the
pampered and breezy Bon of democracy
warmed up to his sudject and finally
broke out with the assertion that he
wanted sugar, salt, wool, and all raw
materials, which is almost limitless, in
its scope' placed on the free list. He
forgot that he had said at Weeping
Water and Omaha that he stood squarely
a the Mills bill and advocated it, when
Mi tariff was not taken off of sucrar bv
rthatbill at all. He then stooped to
mention the World Herald fake about
fc.the Doraey telegram which appears to be
the popular democratic method
of electioneering. Stealing tel
egrams and publishing them
is heartily indorsed and warmly com
mended bv Mr Bryan. But whether the
people endorse it or not we will learn
later. Bryan forgot to tell us how many
letters had passed between the ehairman
of his committee and the New York im
porters who are furnishing the money to
run these democratic congressional cam
paigns. These New York importers are
the fellows that are suffering to help the
dear farmers of Nebraska, they are wor
ried most to death because we out west
are taxed, it is too bad, but it will be
infinitely worse for us if Bryan is elected
to congress and far better for the impor-'
Bryan made so many mistatements that
we cannot notice the half of them today
but one more must be mentioned. lie
said that thei nerensed cost of tin plate
would increase the price of cans $10,000
for one years work by the canning factory
at Beatrice.for he had been there and
knew all about it. Well we have fig
ured with one of the leading stock hold
ers and a bookkeer in that institution
and w-e find that the lucreasedjjpiice f 4
cer per pound if that were added en
tirely to the cost of the cans after the
work and former price had been
paid,k,it would take enough cans
to keep 200 men employed every day fcr
one year, and would supply enough tin
cans to furnish all the canning factories
m the state with more cans than they
could use in fiye years, on the basis of
the output last year.

trash to the farmers forvotcs, not ex
pecting that it should be repeated in
Omaha and Plattsmouth. And his ex
planations and attempt to (-core the
IIkuamj fell perfectly Hut on an audience
that vu3 largely composed of shop nun;
one turned to the editor of this paper
with the remark that the explanation
was worse than the original story. And
when Mr. Waugh attempted to break
the c hilly stillness by starting an ap
plausc it met with no response. And
yet this immaculate Bryan after getting
off the 'top not' chestnut and the earncfet
remark that the man who "garbled hurt
himself went right ahead and quoted
from Council's upeech in Washington,
which lie garbled shamefully ns he well
Of the Nebraska Young Men's
knew, Mr. Conntll having called hi a
down on it at Weoninir Water. And h
did worse than that, he reiterated the ex
President Haves chestnut which .Mr,
Hayes repudiated entirely several day
ago stating that the purposed interview
was baseless and false. And this is the
manner of man that the democrats wisl
to send to congress whose campaign is a
constant reiteration of decayed issues
and questionable statements.
Seldom is Plattsmouth's people called
upon to assist in putting out a fire and
when tho (ire company does get out the
(ire always goes out tco. Today about
one o'clock the fire alarm w as sounded
and smoke was Been issuing from the
roof of Mr. Ilyeis' residence on south
seventh street. As the outlook for a se
rious conflagration seemed imminent the
entire department was soon on the
grounds and with four streams of water
the fire was quickly routed. Great care
lessness was shown in the removal of
goods several articles being damaged
The fire started near the chimney under
the roof and was slow in getting oiit.

doubtless be paid in full.
The Journal gring, not sathfied wi:h
a mass of wholesale lying through their
own columns that would make Ananias
blush, indicted themselves on to the
World-Herald last night. The house
was not twice as largs as Mr. Tate's;
Bryan's speech, as every man who his
heard him before knows, was not entire
ly new. And Bryan did not say any
thing about taxing western farmers for
eastern shops; at Weeping Water he said

It is said that Mike Cavey made anoth
er attempt to blacken the character of
Lemasters at his home town of Ehnwood
Saturday. When Mike got the floor the
audience picked up their hats and left.
The above is as false as hades. Facts
arc that Mr. Cavey was called up at the
speaking in Weeping Water and asked
to prove the charges m ide against Le
masters. He read two affidavits in prcof
and attempted to explain, when he was
requested to with hold and he would be
gi anted' opportunity to discuss the mat
ter next night in Elmwood, before Le
masters neighbors. The meeting came
off and Mr. Cavey was not even given a
chance to speak, nor did he attempt to.
Lemasters carefully evaded the question
and did not permit it to come up, and
was afraid of it where the people krjow
the facts. The Eagle's statement that
the audience got up and left when Cavey
at '.emoted to speak, is false. He never
attempted to speak.

In the Clouds.
Professor Moller, of Carlsrnhe, has
made some interesting observations on
clouds. The highest clouds, cirrus and
eirro-sti-atus, rise on an average to a
height of nearly 30,000 feet. The mid
dle clouds keep at from 10,000 feet to
23,000 feet in height, while the lower
clouds reach to between 3,000 feet and
7,000 feet. The cumulus clouds float
with their lower surface at a height of
from 4,000 to 5,000 feet, while their
summits rise to 16,000 feet. The tops of
the Alps are often hidden by clouds of
the third class, but the bottoms of thr-
clouds of the second class, and espe
cially of the thunderclouds, often enfold
The vertical dimension of a cioud ob
served by Professor Moller on the Netle
berg was over 1,200 feet. He stepped
out of it at a height of about 3,700 feet,
and high above the mountain floated
clouds of the middle class, while veils of
mist lay in the ravines and clefts. The
'upper clouds were growing thicker,
while the lower ones were dissolving,
and soon it began to rain and snow.

The First Silk Jlill in KnjjlHruJ.
A portion of the old mill built by John
Lombe at Derby in 171S the fir.-t silk
mill ever erected in England has col
lapsed, and it is expected that the whole
building will have to come down. Lombe
worked as a silk weaver in Italy, and at
