John Finisher is an old citizen, haying
been a resident of this place for oyer 30
years. This morning as he was loading
a wagon with dirt (he being in the em
ploy of Street Commissioner Ilemple) at
the corner of 8th and Vine streets this
morning, the bank, which is about S
feet high, suddenly caved down on Lini
and caught him in such a manner as to
break the thigh bone and otherwise in
jure him very seriously. He was brought
down to the Nebraska House and Dr.
Thede Livingston called, who dressed
the fractared limb and otherwise made
him as comfortable as possible. Mr.
Furnisher owns a house and acre lot in

himself. Owing to his age and other

A splendid audience, composed of the
bebt and most intelligent class of people
to be found in our city, greeted the aide
exponent of a protective tariff, Hoi.. J.
G. Tate, at the opra house list ev"nig.
The meeting was presided over by Mayor
Richey, who introduced the speaker of
the evening in a few we!l chosen re
marks. Mr. Tate did not begin by alms
ing anyone, but in a pleasant agreeable
manner he started in on what turned out
to be the moi-t eloquent and convincing
argument we haye heard during the cam
paign. His logic was clear and his pre
mises were based tn the facts that large
ly came under his own personal know
ledge. His telling points against the
demagoeuery and lying tactics of the
Omaha World-Herald werereceiyed with
deafening applause. He showed how
the democratic press had wantonly and
by wholesale, lied about the McKiuley
bill, and clinched his statements by read
ing from the paptrs and then from the
bill. Mr. Tate grew eloquent in show
ing how this country had grown since
the war, on account of the tariff, in strong
contrast with what it was before the war,
although enough gold had been taken
out of our mines from 1848 to 1860 to
have made us a rich nation; yet we were
poor at the beginning of the war, and
were almost without credit, and all on
account of free trade, which had taken
our gold out of the country to pay for
the immense purchases the country was
making abroad. The balance of trade
had been millions against us, until the
republican party in lSG'l closed the
gates; and from that very day, notwith
standing the natural results of a dreadful
war, the country began to improve until
it has stripped and outgrown eyery other
nation on the face of the globe. L. G.
Todd, who bubbles oyer at the slightest
opportunity, took issue with Mr. Tate on
some tariff point and wns invited upon
the stage, where he was allowed to give
his views in a rambling manner, that
amounted to nothing except that the
finarcinl policy was all wrong nod:
he, Todd, had a sure cure for
all the ills we suffer from over D-'
duction of cereals by issuing greenbacks.
The crowd listened good naturedly and
laughed heartily at Mr. Todd's position.
Mr. Tate replied in a live minute speech.
completely answering every point Mr.
Todd tried to make. Mr. Adams of Lin
coln, was then introduced, but the hour
was so late that he refused to detain the
crowd, they showed a perfect willing
ness to remain. All in all it was a great
meeting and we believe fully and satis
factorally explained the republican posi
tion ou the tariff.

It was amusing to see C. W. Sherman
shake bauds with L. G. Todd, warmly
congratulating him on his speech last
night, saying: "we have downed 'em
once and can do it again.1' The demo
crats love the independents, for they
think every vote for that ticket counts
one for them.
