a speech. He has premised to go and
will warm them up in good old-fashioned
republican style. The camp-fires are being
lit up in every city and village of the
land, and Harrison and Morton will
bring out as much enthusiasm in 1883 as
did Harrison and Tyler in IS 10.
Mr. Milton Griffith, formerly of the
Journal office here, but who has for the
past few weeks resided in Council Bluffs,
Is in the city visiting his old chums.
Since the Council Bluffs team proved
themselves good players by defeating the
Plattsmouth boys, his ambition could
not be kept under control and it is sup
posed, since he wished to aspire to the
tosition of player in that nine, that tu
bas dislocation a finger, the injury of
which will not permit of his working
and he has now come back to see Platts
mouth. A neatly dressed lady came to the
city yesterday and make inquiries of sev
eral business men here concerning her
husband whm she claims has been in the
city. She gave a description of the man
eaying that he was an artut and is the
man who did the 6ign and window paint
ing in the city a few7 days ago. She said ,
that she had come from New York Citj
nnd had followed him around the coun
try for some time. "When asked why sin
was following him so closely said that
fhe only wished to look after him and
see that he kept straight.
Mr. Cutler, our new photographer,
who is located in Carruth's block, has a
very riine display of bis excellent work
in front of Carruth's jewelry store. Siuce
be has come and settled in our midst, hp
has been very successful, not only in
pleasing all his patrons, but in haviug a
good business ever since. He has been
rushed by work necessitating his working
nights to keep up with the demand.
The work in that line which recently
went to Omaha, is retained in the city, so
it is a benefit t the city indirectly to
have a man here capable of pleasing
all, even the most fastidious.
Last Saturday afternoon about 4 o'clock
a large procession of the different Catho
lic societies, headed by the B. & M.
band marched to the depot to meet
Bishop Bonacum who was expected to
arrive at 4:20 on the flyer. As he was
not made acquainted with the fact that
arrangements had betn made here by the
societies to receive him, he did not come
until 6:30 and disappointed the large
crowd who were waiting at the depot to
give him a rousing welcome. He had
charge of the services here on Sunday
last aud spoke in favorable terms of the
progress made by the church workers at
this point At the morning service 80
children were confirmed. Bishop Bona
cum is bishop of the new diocese south
of the Platte Hirer.
The Darber Case.
Considerable dissatisfaction on both
sides has been the result of the late
trouble between the barbers of this city,
and since the last trial it has been more
apparent than before.
The trouble came about by the mana
ger of the Kiddle House Barber shop
keeping it open on Sunday for the pub
lic while all the others of the city have
agreed to close up and do no work of
any kind on that day. No dissatisfactiou
has been tot iced on the part of any un
til the shop I speak of opened here in
our midst. Such a move would certainly
compel us to open up our shops or lose
considerable business which we would
otherwise Jiave. A barber's life is not the
pleasantest one each night in the week
we are obliged to work until a late hour
and when Sunday comes we feel as
though the day belongs to us as a day of
rest as it docs any other mechanic, and if
one barlcr shop is running Sunday it will
certainly draw wur custom from us.
People who have had the case misrep
resented to them suppose the whole trou
ble was propted ouly by malice, which is
far from being true. The cnia clearly
showed in court that such work was a
violation of the law, and every one can
sec that it is wrong.
If Mr. Riddle was compelled to keep
his barber shop open to accommodate
.transient guests, and those only, who
could not or would uot require our ser
vices, we would not have had the slight
est objections. But such was not the
case; citizens, finding the shop open and
the men ready to do work for anybody,
if they needed any work done they would
certainly take advantage of such an op
portunity, throwing our custom in their
We do not or navcr have wished to
interfere with the business iu ,opg as it
does not come in contact with us iu that
way and then we are obliged to object
or lose our business, or keep open Sun
days, which we will not do as long as
we can help it, but as soon as wc find citi
zens or customers of ours getting work
done there on Sunday, we must decidedly
and will object. John' P. Kciiney,
Successful Production of "She"
at The New Park, Portland,
It has almost become the rule in Port
land, that, when a dramatic company has
been heralded by the most fulsome ad
vance notices and flaming four-sheet
lithographs posted all about town, the
advent of the company itself, and its
performances ,have fallen short of their
promise. However applicable this obser
vation may have been to other organiza
tions, it is a plersure po say that it does
not apply in the least to ' the "Webster
Brady Dramatic Company, which begau
its engagement at tha New Park Theatre
last night in Mr. Win. A. Brady's drama
tization of II. Rider Haggard's highly
sensational romance, "She."
The house was filled above and below,
and the applause which greeted the sev

To speak of Mr. Brady's work in the
arrangement of the scenes he has selected,
he has used excellent judgment. He has
grasped the salient and most dramatic
portions of the story, and confining him

constructed a pfa which, as well to
those who have, as to' tiioe wjo have
not, read the original story, maintains
the interest to the end.

Republican Ratification Meeting at
Rockwood Hall Tonight.
At a largely attended meeting of the
Young Men's Republican Club last night
it was unanimously decided to hold a
ratification tonight, June 2Ctk at Rock-
wood hall. Different committees were
appointed of live men to take the matter
in hand and make it a success.
Prominent speakers from Omaha and
other points will be present and address
the meeting. Although at this writing
their names cannot be given there will be
music and cannonading all along the line.
Six new names were handed in last
evening and all young republican mem
bers of the club are invited to band in
their names to the secretary, Bird Critch
field, at once. Let all republicans turn
out and have a glorious good meeting.
The Journal frequently comes to
the rescue of the downtrodden and op
pressed, and one of these days it will
branch out for a season as the champion
of the boarding house landlady. She is
always piisrepresented and maligned, be
ing referred to s an ogress who delights
in dishing up weak coffee and furnishing
butter which speaks louder than words.
She has to please everybody, from the
large man with hair on his whiskers to
the sallow youth who has ruined his
health by absorbing the poisonous juices
of the head of a cau;. One of these has
an abnormal appetite and the oJJier no
appetite at all. The men who can't get
along without a finger bowl sits opposite
the one who wipes his fingers on his vest,
and the whole mob of them find fault.
The landlady is obliged to listen to all
their grunts, although some of them are
badly in debt and liable to leave in the
dark of the moon without pausing to
pay up. It is a wonder that she doesn't
arm herself with a spiked club when the
grumbling poiifien"?.s and decorate the
walls and ceilings of the dining room
with brains and clotted blood. No jury
of boarding house keepers would convict
her. Lincoln Journal.

Tbe Girl of the Period.
It is deplorable to think that our boys, who
have bo much desperate hard work before
them, will have no hotter helpmeets than tbe
"girl of the period," who can only strum the
"Boulanger March" on the piano, whose idea
of bliss is to sing some trumpery music shop
ballad without expression or tasto, and whose
idea of a gentleman is one who does not work
for his own living. I heard a conversation
between one of these swoet creatures and her
father one evening recently. It was a de
cent middlo class household, and the parents
had been giving a small carpet dance to
please tbo youngsters. For pianist they hired
a young lady from a neighboring music shop,
who had gladly coma to play valses and
quadrilles for tbe modest remuneration of
half a sovereign. Before the end of the
evening the father, very courteously, as I
considered, wishing to place the young lady
on an equality with his guests, asked his wife
to play a valse while he offered himself as a
partner to tbe relieved musician. I can con
ceive nothing niore graceful. But it did not
appear so to his daughters, whq soundly
rated mm for dancing with a dependent.
"Why, she is nobody I" screamed one ill bred
young girl; "she is not a lady. W)jy, she

ueo, li. t llu tier's Famous Order.
While the Ancient and Honorable artillery
visitors from London and Boston were in
Washington a party of them made a call one
evening on Gen. Butler, who happened to be
in town. Tbe general was in one of bis most
gracious moods, and as full of his peculiar
buinor" as an egg 3 full of meat. He was
glad to see his callers, and" niado hem feel
that they were welcome. Tbe Englishmen
showed a great interest in him, and came
away delighted with their reception. Their
uriOKity was quite equal to their interest.
nd they plied the general with question?
which were characterized by a sort of mix
aire of Yankee inquisjtiveness and British
luntness. Maj. Becker "wanted to know
.'ou know," about that famous order at New
Jrleans for the summary anil degrading pun
sshmect of any woman who should insult a
oliiier, the major stating frankly that it had
a used a c;ox' dea f indignation among
"Well, gentlemen." said (he general, witl
