A serious stabbing affray occured in
Omaha last night, in which Chas. Duke,
of that place, fatally stabbed Micheal
Connelly. It seems that they had some
words over a woman and it finally ended
as above stated. Connelly is in a very
critical condition, and Duke is under ar
rest. Mr. Woolley. of Weeping Water, is
in town today with a petition signed by
2,503 legal voters to remoye the county
seat from Platttsmouth to Weeping Wa

Free Trade ys. Protection.
Editor Herald: We hear a great

this election campaign, but the average
voter knows but very little about the
practical working of the free trade doc
trine. Perhaps a slight allusion to the
practical working of free trade right here
at home may set some men and women
to thinking. And first of all we will
give C. Whopper a nut to crack, who
fills what little space there is for reading
matter in his paper principally with free
trade slush and flings at protection. But
he is not consistent in his teachings he
frequently has an article in his paper de
nouncing persons who go to Omaha, Chi
cago and other places to buy their goods.
This he should stop or stop preaching
free trade. It is all right for men who
believe in, and vote for free trade to go
to Omaha to buy goods and pay the tariff
or tax in the shape of IL II. fare ( pro
Tided the R R does not violate the In
terstate Commerce Law by giving them a
pass). But what is the effect of this pol
icy ? Just what protectionists are
preaching. It not only ruins the business
of our merchants and compels them to
sell higher than they otherwise would, on
account of the loss of the trade that goes
from them and into the hands of foreign
merchants. And the merchants are not
the only loosers by this free trade policy
Every man who owns property in the city
is injured; every mechanic and laboring
man who has a home in 'the city or
intends to make it his home is injured by
this practical working of free trade.
Suppose every person in the city and
surrounding country were to do their
trading in some other city, how long
would it be until you had no merchants
in the city, and how long would it be
until you would be but a country village
-without a store or shop in it ? If tiiis be
true of small cities and villages, how
much more strongly does it apply to us
Gentlemen, practice what yeu preach
If you believe in free trade, buy your
goods in Omaha, Chicago, or other cities
and let your own city that you are trying
to build up, go to the dogs.
I may have hit some protectionist in the
foregoing, and if so, all I have to say is,
if the shoe fits wear it.

Wonderful, sublime, beautiful, start
ling, were a few of the many expressions
we heard issue from the lips of a number
of the immense audience coming from
Boyd's Opera House last evening after
the performance of the "World," which
has had such extensive advertising, and
we are pleased to say that Geo. O. Morris,
the manager, presented all and more than
he advertised in the way of scenery and
company. The harbor scene was realis
tic, and the sunset effect pleasing, the
the deck scene was imposing, and at the
conclusion we rise involuntarily from
our seats in amazement as we actually
witness the horror of a sinking ship in
mid ocean and watch the angry waves
eager to engulf it. At the conclusion of
this truly wonderful piece of stage mec
hanism we looked at each other and for
a moment there was the silence of death,
then one mighty round of applause at
this perfection of stage machinery; the
raft scene was grand, in this we see the
castaways lashed to a frail raft and toss
ed about by the wayes; already the hor
rors of the situation has temporarily de
prived one of its occupants of reason,
and as all appears lost a ship beats up
from windward and rescues the sufferers.
The garden scene, the lunatic asylum,the
revolving scene, the panorama, the hatel
parlor, etc., were all realistic, in fact we
may say that never before has such a
great amount of scenery been seen upon
eur stage. The bills announce that it
cost $10,000, and we think it did. The
company is more than ordinary. J. Z.
Little is an easy, unaffected actor, and
we were unconscionsly led by the hand
of the plucky sailor throughout all his
troubles. The other parts were well
sustained. Omaha Bee.

O. stag ths praises as you will
For the people of your choice ;
But always be for Harrison
For he's our nations choice.
But better far than beauty fair
Than G rover's vetoing eye.
His tender voice soft cadence rare
Is that which we most prize.
So siny the praises as you will'
And in your loves reiolca.
Kemembar well that "Harrison"
Is our Nation only choice.
His eyes are lovely and luminous.
There's business in his face ;
The tresses piled above his brow
Add witchery to his grace.

When the birds are on a roam,
The people will go to the rumbler

The County Seat of Chase.
Grant, Neb., Sept. 5. The special
election held Monday in Chase county to
change the location of the county seat,
was not decisive. Imperial, the present
county seat, pitted against Chase, Cham
pion and Manderson, was only short 40
vote9 in the race. Chase, receiving the
smallest vote, will drop out. The next
ballot will take place in thirty days.
Utah Indians Making Trouble.
Salt Lake City, Utah, Sept. 5. The
Utes and Navajoes in the Son Juan coun
try are growing very insolent and settlers
are daily fearing an outbreak. Many of
the ranchers have moved their families
into the settlements, and if the Indians
continue their raids, will appeal to Goy'
West for protection. The Indians have
lately gone to the homes of ranchers an d
helped themselves to whatever they
wanted. They also detain travelers and
Harrison at Fort Wayne.
Fort Wayne, Ind., Sept. 5. The reg
ular tram carying General Harrison and
party was 20 minutes late starting from
Toledo yesterday afternoon. Short stops
were made at White House, Liberty and
Napolian, where he was greeted by large
crowds at the stations. At Defiance 500
people were at the depot, but the stop
was too brief for a speech. After mak
ing stops at several other small towns the
train reached Fort Wayne. Fully 5,000
people were at the depot to wit
ness his arrival. His special car was
switched off and General Harrison and
his party alighted and were escorted to
the public square. Here a large crowd,
numbering 6,000 persons, had assembled
to greet the distinguished guest. As the
general appeared on the platform he was
pelted with a shower of boquets. When
the noise and cheers abated he de
livered an address on the issues of the
day, the audience frequently expressing
its keen appreciation by applause and
Anna Dickinson Is authority for the as
sertion that Fred Douglass has that rare
beauty, an absolutely perfect hand. It
is small and exquisitely shaped. The
tinge of yellow natural to the akin gives
it the appearance of a finely sculptured
bit of ivory tinted by time, but preserved
with infinite care.
Miss Mary Anderson is much annoyed
by "the pestilential nuisances who write
for autographs," but has now hit upon
an effective plan for dealing with them.
She has had a specimen of her writing
lithographed, and her manager Eenda
each applicant a copy thereof, with a
printed card saying: 'Miss Anderson de
sires me to inclose you her autograph as
you request, with her compliments, and
to say how sorry she is that the matter
has not had her attention ere this."
Oliver Thome Miller is now 50 years of
age, gray haired, stout and jolly. She
first began writing for the amusement of
her children, then for their instruction
in natural history. Five years she baa
devoted exclusively to the study of birds,
of which 6he keeps a room full, her
writing desk standing in the middle. It
is with a bobolink on her shoulder, a
bluebird taking his bath in her tea cup,
and an oriole cribbing from her back
hair for its nest, that Mrs. Miller pens
the studies from bird life introduced to
us in "Bird Ways" and in her new work,
In Nesting Time."
A Mrs. Pratt, in Louisville, the widow
of a well known Presbyterian divine, is
making quite a little fortune out of
beaten biscuit, such a she used to regale
her guests on in happier and more pros
perous days. They are "home made"
under her personal supervision, white as
snow as to crumb and golden brown as
to crust, just such as you may have
eaten in many a Tennessee and Kentucky
house where the divine art of making
them is still possessed by the negro cooks.
Mrs. Pratt sells her biscuit at fifteen
cents a dozen, and the demand for them
for luncheons, parties, picnics, etc., has
grown so that she employs several people
besides the original "aunty" who helped
her make the lirst batch she sent on trial
to the Woman's Exchange.
Vernon Lee is the young English woman
uKn whom the mantle'of George Eliot is
supposed to have descended. If her
future fulfils the promiso of her present
she will leave George Eliot behind in the
race. Probably no literary woman of
any time has or has had an early record
to compare with that of Vernon Lee.
She is only 25, and she has written sev
eral largo volumes on mediaeval lit
erature, involving years of research; she
has contributed for at least eight years
to the leading English reviews; she has
published three or four volumes of
essays, several short stories, and a re
markable novel called "Miss Brown,"
which was the literary sensation of the
day. Vernon Leo her real name is
Violet Paget lives in Florence with a
lame and musical brother. She is very
plain, decidedly masculine in appear
ance, and is fond of sitting with her legs
crossed and of smoking cigarettes. The
reading world has been waiting patiently
for new work from her pen.
