A Victory for Prohibition.
The trial of Muncrath, charged with
conspiracy in tlie murder of He v. Had
dock, of Sioux City, closed at G:80 p. m.
Saturday and the jury agreed at 3 p. m
yesterday afternoon, finding him guilty
of manslaughter.
The verdict is received with general
approval and the state encouraged by its
success will proceed immediately with the
trial of those known to have had a hand
in the murder, and it is believed by sonic
that Muncrath and his fricuds will vet
turn state's evidence and become prose
cuting witnesses. In case this should
conic about the state will without doubt
be able to carry a complete victory over
the men implicated in that crime and
bring them to the punishment which
they heartily deserve. The extreme pen
alty for manslaughter in Iowa, is eight

sentence will be pronounced next Mou
The official figures of the Texas pro
hibition canvass, which have just been
published, reveal two surprising facts.
The vote for prohibition (129.278) is
about 30,000 more than most persons
outside the state supposed the amend
ment would get, and the total yote (350,-
905) is greater than anybody either in
side or outside the state believed would
be polled. Tlie yote, indeed, was more
than 25,000 greater than cast in the pres
idential canvass three years ago, and
more than 47,000 in excess of that polled
at the exciting election for governor
last fall. The majority against the amend
ment (92,354) was large, to be sure,
but as the prohibitionists polled 27,000
votes more than the republicans ever did
in that state, and 64,000 more than they
did last November, the cold-water men
have no especial cause to be discouraged
at the showing they made at the first at

Ho For the Fair!
The twenty-third annual fair of the
Cass County A gricultural society opens
tomorrow to last four days. The officers
of that society have labored hard for
several weeks past to fill every stall and
corner of the grounds with something
worthy of admiration, and to have a
good portion of each day occupied by
interesting and exciting performances on
the speed track. They have presented a
very large number of valuable premiums
and prizes for competition besides many
specials offered by the business men of
Plattsmouth and the county.
The specials offered by the business
men are all valuable and worthy the
competition, which, in most cases, is
novel and attractive.
The prospects of the fair are very
promising and it will undoubtedly eclipse
any held this season in the state, except
the state and Omaha fairs.
The cash premiums alone amount to
The interesting sights and beneficial
instruction to be obtained from attending
makes the fair worthy the patronage of
every citizen in the county; and to get
the full benefits of the fair, the best way
is to attend every day. The grounds are
large and there is room for everybody.

Public opinion throughout Canada is
decidedly shaping itself against the Gov
ernment's threatened coercion policy to
ward Manitoba, if that province does not
submit in the Red River road difficulty.
Last Sunday the Government asked and
obtained an injunction restricting the
further construction of the road. This
iction raised a storm of disapprobation
in which the press of the country joined
almost universally. The Toronto Globe,
a paper which reflects pretty accurately
the opinion of intelligent Canadians, in
terpcts this action as no less an attempt
than to deprive, not simply Manitoba,
but the other provinces as will, of their
provincial liberties. In an article reccnt-
y published that paper takes a bcld posi
tion, and appeals to the Canadians f
the older provinces to sujport tho Mani-
tobans in their present conflict. The ar
tide thus closes: "If Canadians do not
promptly remonstrate against the Gov
eminent that has dared to prostitute the
Federal authority to the service of a mo
nopoly, they stand liable to be scrunched
in turn, and will deserve the scrunching
richly for callously concurring in a most
infamous attempt at oppression." This
is pretty vigorous language, but scarcely
less so is tlie opinion of a Winnipeg pa

per, me r re l-ress, which says: "it is
useless to shriek treason and rebellion
Tlie juestion is: Have we the right to
build the road? If we have, that is all
we care to know. It may be treason, it
may lie rebellion, it may lie anythin
else, but all tlie tyranny and sneaking in
the world cannot deprive us of it, and we
will be justified in asserting it in tlie faro
of tlie cohorts of injustice. If the money
is procurable the lied Hiver Valley road
must and shall be built." These quota
tions represent the opinions both of the
people of Manitoba and the older prov
inces. There is no doubt that resistance
to the bitter end will be carried out. Be
tween the instance of the Manitobans,
then, and the Dominion Government's
determination to squelch thisenterprise,
things are gettiug badly mixed up; and
lively times in the prairie province are
quite likely to result. Globe Dem.

Protecting Watches from Electricity.
"The electric railroads are magnetizing
a great many watches," said a jeweler.
The watches become as thoroughly mag
netized as though brought within tho
range of a dynamo, Here are three watches
sent to me from Scranton, Pa., to be de
magnetized. The jeweler that sent them
said he had thirty-five in the same condi
"Can they be made to resist the influ
ence of the electricity?" ventured a re
"Oh, yes. If we put in a shield made
for the purpose they are all right. This
is the way it works."
The jeweler took an ordinary watch
cover, put a steel pen in it and moved a
magnet on the outside of the cover. The
pen followed the movements of the mag
net. He did the same with a pen in one
of the shields, but the magnet was power
"In some of the finer watches we put a
double shield," he continued, "and a plate
over the dial. "NVc protected a watch for
ice President C. E. Chinnock, of the Edi
son company. He used it two years while
superintendent in their place in Pearl
street, and walked between two big dyna
mos with it without the watch being dis
turbed. Those dynamos are the largest
in the world, 150 horse power each, and
each will lift 4,000 pounds. They took an
umbrella right away from me."
"Has there been any particular disturb
ance of watches this summer;-"
"It has been very great. The electri
cal condition of the atmosphere this season
has doubled the business in mainsprings.
More mainsprings have been broken thaa
has ever been known before. Xearly all
the watches taken in for repairs this
season have had broken mainsprings."
"Is the effect of the electric railways
"Every watch carried on an electric
railway will Tbe magnetized unless it has a
shield. Every lever on an ordinary en
gine is a magnet of itself by reason of the
earth s inductive force. Many railroad
companies require their engineers and
conductors to have their watches pro
tected by shields, much of the trouble of
watches being out of time resulting m
accidents is due to this cause." New

The Great Iron King's Heir.
Frederick Alfred Krupp, son and heir
of the great iron king who died recently,
has issued this address to his men at
Essen: "To the officials and workmen of
my steel works: On my return from the
tomb of my never to be forgotten father,
I take the first opportunity to express my
heartfelt thanks to all for the last honors
rendered to the departed in escorting his
remains to their last resting place and for
the touching sympathy shown me in my
bereavement, u. his sympathy is to me a
proof of the faithful attachment to my
father and a groat consolation in my pro
found grief. It fills mo with confidence
that every one of you within his sphere,
in remembrance of him who Is no more,
will assist me in performing the duties de
volved on me, thereby contributing to tho
maintenance of the reputation which the
establishment has attained by the energy
and under the direction of my late father.
On my pait I shall consider it a sacred
duty to go on working after the example
and in the spirit of the deceased, and, like
him, I shall deem it my first care to look
after the welfare of the officials and work
men of the establishment." Boston Tran
Thomas Jefferson's Violin.
An untoward accident hastened the
work on the new homestead. On Feb. 1,
1770, the family house at Shadwell was
burned. Nearly all its contents were also
destroyed, the principal loss in Jefferson's
eyes being his papers and books, which
latter he estimated at $1,000 cost value.
Not only his law books, but his records
and notes of cases he had prepared for
court, everything in the shape of written
memoranda, except the "garden book,"
the preservatioa of which was long un
known, went up in flame. The servant
who brought him the news in breathless
haste had but one consoling item of in
formation "they had saved his fiddle."

When the Armour mission, up on
Thirty-third street, was started with $500,
000 endowment, it was hard to decide
just how to manage the religious end of it.
Joseph Armour had directed in the will by
which he gave it $100,000 that it should
be non-sectarian. Phil Armour, who
added $ 100, 000 to the original fund, was
altogether opposed to the mission being
anything but a broad, humanitarian
charity, with plenty of religion, of course,
but of that generic sort only which would
be as acceptable to the Homanist as to tho
Methodist, and as agreeable to the Kpis
copulian as to the Iluntist. The reverend
gentleman who was finally selected to take
charge of the religious welfare of the in
stitution was given, in general term, au

Kind or degree. Good doctrine from tlio
llible, without any theology, was what ho
was usked to give. He began with on

own idea of what the little children and
the parents who lillcd the benches needed.
One day he received a summons to come
down town the office. lie got there
promptly and was beckoned over to t lie
big packer's desk. Armour wheeled
around in his chair a couple of times as if
to select his vocabulary, looked the man
of God over caremlly ami then launched
forth his own ideas of theology,
"You're giving these youngsters too
much grape and canister," he began.
slowly. "Hell fire and brimstone are all
right for the old sinners, but tho mission
isn't for them. .ovv," he added, with
the same emphasis he'd use to one of his
ollice clerks, "I want you to change around
and try another plan. If you don't, you'll

'inen ten astory," he continued, "some
thing with a point to it and a moral, but
short. Then you can have another little

inches apart this time.
'Mr. Armour," remarked the preacher.
rather jocosely, "I suppose you can run a
packing house, but you don't know- much
about religion."
'Well," said the builder of tlie mission.
very sharply, "will you try it?"
"Oh, yes," was the answer.
Phil Armour's theological scheme has
been in vogue ever tince that interview
and has been a great success, lie goes up
every Sunday to tlie morning children's
service and watches the thing grow.
"JJon't you mind the old fellows or the
played out sinners," he constantly ad juri s
the minister iu charge. "If vou see an
old fellow in the gutter, even, don't sto;.
but keep your eye on the little fellow
ahead. Look out for him."
Armour's theology has fdled un the
benches, and they hold l.t'OO people. The
preacher, ever since the sharp interview
at the La Salle street ollice. lias been
working on the new tack. The service is
a most interesting one. According to
orders, the grown folks are entirely ig
nored. The whole service is for the little
ones, 'l he prayers are short not longer
than Armour indicated with his two fore-
lingers. There is singing prettv nearly
all the time. The little fellows are drilled
to recite verses or to sing solos. And yet
the benches are almost iilled with the pa
rents and grown brothers and sisters of
the little ones. There are twice as many
at this children's service in the morning
as in the evening, when a sermon is
"lou can do what you like at night."
Armour told the preacher in an encourag
ing way after this interview. "You can
preach a sermon if you like, for I'll never
be there except m the morning. But at
that children's service I want it my way
until I see it won't work."
But it did work. The dominie at the
mission now admits that, after all, Phil
Armour knew better what would fill the
benches than a trained theologian. Best
of all, and this pleases Armour most, all
creeds gather at the mission to bring or
see the children, hundreds of Catholics
among the others. New York Sun.
A Parisian Clockmaker's Expedient.
A Parisian . clockmaker, evidently an
admirer of Gen. Boulanger, has hit upon
a happy expedient for increasing his por
tion or wealth and fame. Having noticed
that only the jingo men are popular in
this fickle day, he posted a notice that
many of the clocks that were being sold
as American product were really German
make, and announced that he would
handle no more of them. To prove his
sincerity, he went to the trouble of smash
ing two or three "suspected" timepieces
in the presence of a goodly crowd of ad
mirers, who cheered him in his patriotic
work. Since then, work, which he often
lacked before, has begun to flow in plenty
to his doors, and he is coining money at a
lively rate. In a city like Paris this was
easily done, for, in spite of its surround
ings, the Parisian rabble is easily gulled.
But it is dangerous work, nevertheless;
for if the same people who are now cheer
ing this hero were to learn that his action
was only an advertising ruse, they would
soon make it warmer for him and his
shop than he probably desires it to be
come. Philadelphia Times.
Breeding Buffaloes for Market.
Buffalo meat, which was once a drns
on the market, and cheaper than beef by
more than half, is now, on account of
its scarcity, esteemed a luxury by a class
of people who believe that anything that
is expensive and hard to get must be
good. Time was when a western game
dealer was glad to get 4 cents a pound
for buffalo beef. Now he could get 25
cents a pound. To meet the demand, we
learn that a party in Kansas, and another
in Dakota, have gone into the business of
breeding buffaloes for the market, and
expect to put some two-vear-old heifers
on sale next spring. It is strange how
people will long for the hard to get. For
instance, in St. Louis no one thinks of
eating wild pigeons, and there are scarcely
any put on sale, because New York and
Boston take all that can be shipped, even
should the amount sum up to 5,000 bar
rels in a single season. ew lork Mar
