Mis. Wiley Black, who resided in
this city for a number of years and who
is well and favorably known, died at
Dcuver, Wednesday morning, and was
buried at that city yesterday. She was
2; years of age. She has only been in
Denver for a few months where she went
for the purpose of finding relief in her
struggle with that terrible disease, con

The IIekald doubts if there is a first
class engineer in the city (among the
strikers) who would be willing to father
the foolish "scab poster" which ornaments
the bill boards and telehone polls of our
city. Such anonymous circulars always
injure the parties resorting to that kind
of warfare. It lacks that element of
courage and good judgment which the
Brotherhood cannot afford to disregard
in any controversy thev may have and
this paper hardly believes it is endorsed
by the Brotherhood. The fact exists that
the C. B. & Q. trains are running up to
schedule time and with over crowded
passenger travel, hence such warfare can
only injure the Brotherhood.
The number who attended Gilmore's
entertaininent3 at Omaha yesterday, were
highly pleased with the concerts. The
Grand 0;era House was crowded, there
being nearly four thousand present in the
eveniner. The audience became very en-
thusiastic over the music, and every solo,
either vocal or instrumental, received an
encore with rousing applause. The music
was arranged to suit all classes. Those
who were cultivated to the appreciation
of classical music the most difficult
had a favorable onnortnnitv of hearing
it rendered as it should be, which showed
that every member of the band was a
thorough artist in his line, while a mini
ber of familiar airs were played and sang
which drew from the large audience
the strongest applause. The soloists
deserve special mention, as they were all
of the very highest class.
The exercises at Bellevuc college
yesterday, passed ff very nicely. There
were a large number of visitors present,
The exercises consisted of music, resita-
tions, declamations, essays and original
orations. Miss Nellie Lodge, of Bclle
vue, took the first prize in music which
was a gold medal, and Miss Helen A.
Lodge of Bellevue, toot second prize
which was a silver medal. Iu recitations
Miss E. Mand 31. Leslie, of Omaha, won
the gold medal which was first prize, and
the second prize, a silver medal, was
won by Miss Itoberta S. Brownlee of
Atkinson; and James B. Miller, of Julcs
burg, Cal., took the first prize in decla
mations, and Geomc S. I'awland, of
Avoca. second prize. In original ora
tions, Thomas J. Nalon, of Bellevue, took
first and Harry A. Carnahan of Pawnee
City, second prize, these were cold and
silver also. While in essays Miss Jessie
S. Flynt of Linnens, Mo., and Miss M.
Elizabeth Klepser of Bellevue, won, these
prizes consist in $10 worth of books, art
and music. Those who attended from
this city report haying a good time, and

We have completed arrangements
whereby we will print a new piece f
music each week in our Weekly Hekald,
commencing with June 21.
Mr. O. E. Wescott has been making
some change in the front of his store
within the last few days, and has repair
ed and changed ono of the windows so
that it will present a much better appear
ance. Messers. Rosewater & Christie, of
Omaha, who have secured the contract
of engineering the sewer work which is
to be done in the city, have started men
to work already at the rear of Frank Car
ruth's jewelry store.
Tht Plattsmouth market has been
higher for some than at any of the neigh
boring cities. Hogs are now selling at
five cents per lb. and corn at forty cents
a bushel, which makes it about five cents
higher than at any of the other markets.
Mr. John Iletch, of Omaha, who is
connected with a roofing company of
that city, and who is here taking charge
of the roofing of the Anheuser-Busch
building, is reported to be the oldest
resident of the State, having emmigrated
to it in 1851.
All who are intetested in the Fourth of
July celebration which is to take place
here, are earnestly requested to meet the
committee of arrangement at the council
chamber tonight at 8 o'clock. Every
body who can should be present, as this
move should willingly be assisted.
The event of the season will be wit
nessed in a short time when the lawyers
and real estate men of this city meet the
doctors and druggists as their opponents
on the diamond to settle an old uud long
talked of grudge. The real estate men
will furnish the ground and the doctors
will set all broken bones.
It is reported that an old man who
was in a hurry to pass a yung man and
his young lady friend while they were
out driving a few evenings ago got real
mad because the yuug man was com
pelled to st jp in his way. He was prom
ised that he should be allowed room in a
short time, but was not satisfied with
that and attempted to drive over every
thing. He got a "Hull" lot of hard slaps
for it and did not like it a bit.
A grand time has been reported to
us today by the parties who were inter
ested in the picnic yesterday which was
held at a grove about six miles north of
Pacific Junction. lt was under the aus
pices f the striking engineers on the oth
er side of the river. A large number of
the engineers from here were invited. and
a number, accompanied by their wives
and sweethearts, attended. A gentleman
accompanied the party as far as Pacific
Junction, and shaking the crowd, had a
picnic all alone, for the rest of the day,
in the land of nod.
The remainder of the Talon estate
was disposed of a short time ago on a
forced sale. The following gives the
full particulars of the sale and the names
of the purchasers: The w of block 9,
lot 29, the property where Fickler's
butcher shop now stand?, sold to Mr.
Fred Stadlemann for $1,025; the e same
lot, sold to C. J. Martin for $1,090; old
Duke residence property, lot 7, sold to J.
M. Craig; lot 8, sold to Mrs. Doyle,
Talon's sister for $935; lot 9, sold to
Miles Morgan for $207. This is a com

which has remained unsettled for some
Sheriff Eikenbary was confronted a
few days ago by an important kind f a
fellow who made strenuous efforts to
pass himself as a detective from Chicago,
saying that he had fellowed a man for
some time and had just succeded in caj)
turing him. He tried to make Mr. Eiken
bary believe that he had his man secured
somewhere near the city and wanted him
to assist h'ni by lending him monpy to
take hii man back to Chicago. The sher
iff only made a brief reply. Do not
know what it was he saH, but whatever,
his stay afterwards was about as brief as
the reply, and the last seen of him lie was
trying to jake up a scheme to make his
way easy for his return trip. He has not
been seen since, and no accounts have
been heard of either him or his prisoner.
Last night at the Grand opera house,
Omaha, during tha Gilmorc concert, a
young lady and gentleman entered and
took seats immediately in front of two
gentlemen from here, without noticing
them, or perhaps never expecting to see
any one from this centre of industry.
Nothing was said to them by either of
the two gentlemen for some time, and
they were apparently enjoying the sights
to be seen on the stage to their utmost
appreciation and content by looking
through a pair of opera glasses, until one
of the gentlemen of whom we spoke,
reached out his hand and exclaimed in a
gruff voice: Give me them opera glas
ses, please!" The shock struck kind of
sudden on the young lady's nerves, caus
ing her to exhibit signs of an excited na
ture. When she looked around and saw
two of her Plattsmouth friends. 6he look
ed though she wished to soy, " what are
you doing here? "
The Printing Contract-
" The' city printing matter has at last
been settled to the satisfaction of Coun
cilman Murphy, if not to that of the dis
interested citizens. The statesman named
started out with that end in viev, and
the writer never had any idea that the
other members of the council cared
enough about making a fight on his pe
culiar hobby to thwart him in his pur
pose, and it was only at the earnest en
treaties of others that the Journal made
any effort to get the work."
The nbove squib set in lumber type,
appeared in the editorial column of our
local contemporary last night. It "sounds
to us'' like a usual spurt from the whale
when he has the audacity to say that it
was just through the entreaty of his
friends that he put in a bid against this
office. If that be so, the estimate put on
the space of his paper must be much
lower than at the time he charged the
city a dollar a square, which he agreed
to allow publication for twenty-five cents,
for after his scheme was defeated, he
used nearly half a column in giving full
expression of his grief so seriously brought
upon him by the loss of the printing for
the city. We expect he needs it. Hecon-
demned Mr. Murphy quite severely in his
paper yesterday because he was only do
ing his duty to the city as any council
man should do. The city has had con
siderable experience with Mr. Sherman
during the past year, a9 Mr. Murphy
knows, and has tried to rob it severel
times by not living up to his contract. Iu
their publicationof the bid from this office
they did not publish it as it was handed
in to the city council, and we can
prove that, so it is quite evident, if
for no other reason than lying, he should
be shut out from consideration entirely,
for if a man will misrepresent such things
to the public, it is equally true that he
will swell his bids and misrepresent his
work also. Mr. Murphy did only what
was right to justify himself when he knew
as much as he did of such disgraceful
acts on the part of Mr. Sherman. The
Herald has always lived up to its agree
ments and we defy Sherman or any other
man to deny this statement. That is more
than he can do and wc can prove it in
black and white. The bids from this
office was handed in before the termina
tion of the time set for receiving it, but
Mr. Sherman did not wish to displease
himself by so doing and waited until our
bid was made public before the council
and an agent of his whose ears were tak
ing in everything as the clerk read it
Mr. Murphy and the other gentlemen only
showed their appreciation of honesty by
acting as they did.

WAGES in EUROPE.
A Short Talk to New York Working
Men by the New York Sun.
There is only one country in Europe in
which the wages of labor are within a
half of what they are in this country.
That is Great Britian.
Wages in Germany, France, Belgium
and Swiu-herland are not one third of
what they are here. Those of Italy are not
One duty of government is to protect
the labor of its citizens. Last year cheap
foreign labor was imported into the
United States in the shape of manufac
tured goods to the value of $092,31 G,7C3.
This was a great wrong to American la
bor. In that immense amount of imports
permitted by our insuflicicnt and defec
tive tariff, the labor of women employed
in the Manchester, Englaud, cotton mi 'Is,
whose wages do not average $00 a year,
came into competition with the higher
priced labor of our southern and north
ern cotton spinners, iu that mass of im
ports was the labor of German factory
workmen averaging less than $115 a year
and that of women averaging less than
$50 a year.
Munich is a gallery and centre of art.
Gorman women with as many as six
childred saw wood in its streets for 15
cents a day. May a merciful God sink
the United States 10,000 feet under the
sea before that heinous spectacle shal be
come an incident of our civilization!
Nearly $700,000,000 worth of the star
vation labor of Europe, in the form of
manufactured goods, was imported into
this country last year. That which came
from Belgium iu bales and boxes repre
sented the wages of 22 sents a day for
women and 43 cents for men, and the
highest priced labor in those cargoes of
Belgium steel and iron represented wages
less than 80 cents per cay. Compared
with these the wages of Carnegie's men
at Braddock are the incomes of princes.
Italian labor, in Italian merchandise,
was imported into this country last year,
in competition with American labor, at
prices that should fill sensitive souls
witli horror, and alarm the thoughtful for
the future of the human race. The pay
in the cotton factories of Naples is 20
cents a day; of Neouolitan marble and
granite cutters, from 40 to 50 cents a day,
according to skill; of coachmen, 30 cents;
of women in lace factories, 10 cents, and
girls, 7 cents; of soldiers in the army, $2
a month. Of all the workmen in the glass
works of Italy, only the skilful blowers
receive as high of $1 a day, and laborers
on farms, hoeing or making hay, from
15 to 18 cents a day, working from sun
to sun. God save America from such
In the Swiss silk goods which came
into our half protected country last year,
in those $700,000,000 of imports, was the
skilled labor of men at 41 cents a day
and of women at 20 cents, both compet
ing with the silk weavers of Patterson,
New York, Philadelphia and. Cheney.
Glasgow, in Scotland, is the steamship
factory of the world,and its blast furnace
owners and iron rollers howl for free
trade day and nighb. Of the families in
that manufacturing Sodom 41,000 out of
100,000 live in one room, and half of the
men and women in the city are chronic
ally ut of work. That one room for a
family of father, mother, daughter and
sons tells what wages are in Scotland, and
how they drag humanity down into bes
tality and misery.
Brothers? the Mills bill to reduce the
tariff is the first step to that one room
for an American family. Fight it with
out delay and fight to its death; and
then make your tariff so protective as to
shut out cheap foreign labor in the form
of manufactured goods.
