The city council will meet tomorrow
Cleveland will require all his cleav
ing qualities to keep a hold on the White
House this term.
Mr. J. T. Lloyd wishes us to say to
the man who has been helping himself to
his wood pile for the past two weeks
when he was in bed, had better stop if
he has any respect for himself, for if he
don't ho will feel something drop.
A small party assembled at the resi
dence of Mr. Thos. Murphy last night,
and it is needless to say that the most
enjoyable time was had by all present at
the home of as congenial a gentleman
The usual different amusements were in
dolged in and some friends present enter
tained the party by singing.
Messrs. Claus Brekenfcld and Chris,
Koehnke have purchased the large furni
ture store of Mr. Unruh and in a couple
of davs will take possession. These
gentlemen are both well known in the city,
Mr. Koehnke has had considerable ex
perience in the furniture business, and as
they arc both known to be good, straight
forward business men, they should secure
a ?ood share of the patronage. "We wish
them every success in this adventure.
Prominent "Hob, as the name ap
peared in last evening's issue, became
quite infuriated over the item, and as he
jumped on our reporter with severe
threat unless we complied with his
wishes, we are obliged to publish the fol
lowincr oration delivered by him: "George
Weidman was happened to be goen
home at half-past twelve. His fingers
was quite sore and please Robert lift me
up for I fell through a walk.'
Our attention has been attracted to
the Anheuser-Busch building, which has
recently been erected, by tho progress
which is now being made in finishing it.
The masons are nearly through with their
work and in a very short time now it
will be ready for occupation. Skinner
& Ritchie were given the agency of the
building, and any wishing to secure de
sirable rooms in the building should see
those gentlemen immediately, as the
building will find ready tenants.
In the local columns can be seen an
article clipped from the Omaha Herald
which speaks in favorable terms of the
"Webster-Brady company which played
"She" at Boyd's opera house last night.
This company will hold forth at the
Waterman opera house tomorrow night.
The seats are now selling fairly well at
J. P. Young's book store, and it is ex
pected that a full house will greet them.
Everybody go and see the great play of
which there has been so much talk of
late. Notices in their favor appear in
each of the Omaha papers this morning.
Lieut. CoL "Mose'' O'Byron and Capt,
Mumni, of Omaha, members of camp 1,
S. V., were visitors of II. E. Palmer camp
50, of this place last night. They were
well satisfied with the condition and
progress of the camp here, and reflected
great credit on Capt. S. C. Green for the
able manner in which the camp has been
conducted. The camp listened to some
wholesome advice from both the visitin
brothers and also from some of the G. A.
R. who were present. The Col. and Capt.
were given a rousing vote of thanks by
the camp which was neatly res2onded to
by capt. Alumni, ana tne camp unam.
monsly decided to invite them agaim.
"We are of late realizing such gratifi
cation on account of our success in the
' publication of the Daily Herald, and
the large number of names added to our
subscription list, that we feel like express
ing oursclyes in thanking the people who
are coming to our assistance. "We are
making strenuous efforts to bring The
Herald out in such a newsy style that
the people will feel that it is a necessity
in tbeir midst. These last few days wc
have averaged five and six new subscrib
ers daily, without canvassing, and for
some time past not less than two each
day. "We are striving to fill up the local
page every day and are determined to
catch every news item that is to be had
in any way. "We will give you all the
news that it is possible for us to secure,
and although the city is quiet at times
and news is hard to find in a city of this
size, yet, if as good support continues to
come in, with that encouragement we are
bound to be successful in every way.
Let the citizens assist us by subscribing,
and if any item should come in their way,
of any kind, concerning any, save it for
the reporter or send it to the office and
it will be thankfully received. If you
have friends visiting you, let us know of
their arrival, and by so doing you will
not only assist us, but furnish news. We
appreciate the kindness of those who
have so far stood by us, and by their
continuance of patronage we will do

Hooks Thrown at Engineer Last
Mlsht, Which Would Hays Klllsd
Had Tney Taken Effect.
Privileged Characters in the Ab
sence of the "Pinks".
It seems almost incredible that men
who have had good advice from every
body disinterested and directly inter
ested people, that at this late hour the
darkness should cover as much deviltry
and uncalled for display of misanthropy
as renortd this morning confirm. Men
who should act in such a disgraceful
manner, must certainly be possessed of
exceedingly shortsightedness to come
forward and work up such a reputation
for themselyes as will extend far and
wide, and if they can see anything they
surely see that no good can come from
it, while the wrong they have done them
selves can never bo forgiven them and
the brand of crime will be stamped on
the guilty parties wherever they may go,
while a man with such a mark - is not
capable of rivaling even his greatest ene
mies, the scabs. We speak as a disinter
ested party standing aside and only act
ing as observers, which is our business.
The engineers and switchmen while at
work last night about 11 o'clock, large
rocks were thrown from the bauk in the
vicinity of Mr. Joseph Connor's residence
with great force, which would, had they
struck any of the men, killed them in
stantlv. Rocks struck the locomotives
and cals, making dints wherever they
happened to strike, large enough to hold
a man's finger, and it is reported the par
ties who threw the rocks also fired revol
vers twice or three times before the men
working had a chance to defend them
selves. The engineers and men employed
in tho yards soon answered by openin
fire at the fellows on the bank, but w Ith-
out effect. Residents in that vicinity
were in almost as much danger as any
body, as the men were firing in all direc
tions. It is reported that when it was
discovered that the scabs were armed and
meant business, that the others skipped.
This morning a large pile of stones
were discovered which had been piled
up on the bank in readiness for opera
tion. Such stones as were thrown nnd
with as much force, were sent with the
intention f killing anyone they should
happen to strike. .
Some time ago considerable talk was
heard and very much disatisfaction no
ticeable on the part of many during the
presence of the Pinkerton men here, say
ing that their ireseuce only caused pro-
vootion to the people here.
Several requests have been made that
those men should be removed, and if
they were less trouble would result.
They were removed last Tuesday and
no sooner were they missed from the
yards than the trouble comrumenced. If
the men in this city, whoever they are, do
not wish to be looked on by the "Pinks,"
should not provoke the company and
eblige itto return those men to the city.
If the citizens here are obliged in be
ing misrepresented to the world as a
body of nocturnal highwaymen by a
handful of rnffians, we had better close
up shop and move out. We would ask
the authorities, not being partial to any
party, in behalf of respectable citizens to
look into this matter, and deal law out
to the guilty parties should they ascer
tain who they are. This thing has gone
far enough, so let it stop right here.
We did not secure the names of any
parties, and cannot guess who the guilty
ones are, but should such an act of mis
conduct be repeated, we promise who
eyer it may be that we will put forth
every effort to find out who they are, and
if we are successful in our attempt, an
exposure of the whole party will surely
People can not nor will not stand such
abuse longer, and if any such acts are
repeated, policemen will not be required
to enforce the law.

Th "J-J -s" V.:j In Trcuila. j
ble-double-back-action kind of a man
by the name of Newberry, but better
known by all as "Judge," was attempting
to work an invention or contrivance of his
on the team of horses over which ho offi
ciates, last evening. For several weeks
he has tried in various ways to make the
High School hill with his hungry team,
but never was successful until last night
when he tried his invention which work
ed like a charm. Before when he attempt
ed to driye up. the horses would become
discouraged. whn their collar bones
wonld stick from their eyes. He certain
ly has been feeding them better of late or
thty never would have reached the top
with such rapidity. The "judge" had a
rope connected with the front driving
wheels of one of his locomotives, and
when ever tho wheel would s'rike a dead
centre and stop, he would pull the bell
rope with which he had full control at
the front where he sat. Several times the
troubled animals stopped still and wouid
mA. ninvA unless it would be to let the
"judge" and his wagon drop back a little.
For some time the monuments of bones,
apparently were about to succumb to the
heavy weight of the "judge" and the
wagon, and if such had been the case the
result would have been a bone-yard,
crippled "judge." and a dozen or so men
employed by the health inspector in clean
ing up the road this morning. After
the judge had worked at his new scheme
and was about to give it up in disgust,
a bright idea struck his fertile brain
The horses were starving as he knew, and
the people knew from appearances, and
knowing their anxiety to reach a pint of
oats if they could be seen in the distance,
the taste of which they had a faint rec
ollection of, thought that if he should
locate a pail at the top of the hill, let
them see it and bring his new bell-rope
scheme into action at the same time that
they would soon make the hill. The
oats were secured (not from his barn but
from his partner's, Richard's,) and
set out in full view of the
wide-awake animals. The thought
that a good feed was in store for
them, brought into full control every
nerye which could be utilized in one
grand effort for the top of the hill. The
"procesh" nioyed slowly but with one
grand effort to the top. A fter vcl? so
successful, several times the same trip
was made, each time they made a more
rapid trip. The judge thinks his new
bell-rope scheme was what did such ex
cellent work, but he has also come to the
conclusion that a little more oats or hay
would help it out wonderfully.
"She" at Boyd's Last Night.
The announcement of the presentation
of a first class dramatization of ITaggard's
weird novel "She" was sufficient to at
tract a fairly good house to Boyd's last
night. There are many companies on
the road producing alleged dramatic ver
sions oi mis worK, due tew meet tne re
quirements which the anticipations of
readers of the book demand. It is in
fact yery nearly an impossibility to pre
sent anything at all meritorious in a dra
matic sense and adhere to the plot of the
book. In a greater measure thm any
other company thus lar brought forward,
however, the Webster-Brady combination
overcomes this fact. Last night's presen
tation was attended with a degree of
smoothness hardly to be expected in a
play where the abnormal in nature and
fact are the sole recommendations. The
scenic effects, to be sure, were the main,
if not the only features of the show,. At
the same time the people in the cast
availed themselves of every opportunity
to do good work and were rewarded by
liberal applause. The hetpot tableau re
ceived two encores, while Misses Tittal
and Biggar and Mr. McConnell were
called befoie the curtain after the judg
ment scene. Mr. Webster made tho best
of a commonplace part as Holly, while
Mr. West did some very good low come
dy worlf as Job, The play will be re
peated tonight. Omaha Herald,
Reports from Crete, Neb.,say that large
crowds from towns and cities all oyer
thstate are arriving there daily and al
so people from a greater distance have
put in an appearance. The Assembly
grounds are in excellent condition and
electric lights are distributed numerously
upon the grounds. Distinguished men
from abroad will be present and particir
pate in the proceedings each day. A
large number of Plattsmouth peoplo left
here this morning with the intention of
spending a few days at that place and it
is expected that a large number will leave
here tomorrow. Today in the day of the
opening, and it is not expected that all
who have made up their minds to visit
the place will start today, but it is ex
pected that the excursion train the morn
ing of the 30th will be crowded. Rev.
T. DeWitt Taluiage, America's most
famous preacher, will lecture that day.
The C. B. & Q. will sell tickets at all
points along the line at one fare for the
round trip, good to return until July
12th. Crete is a favorite summer resort,
and if for no other reason than to take a
pleasure trip and remain a few days, a
person would be well paid should they

short time Saturday morning caused by a
fire in the building owped by Truman

when it began to boil over, and caught
