THE GRANDEST EVENT.
The Prominent Young Ladies of this City
Again act as EscDrts.
THEY DO THEMSELVES PROUD.
Their Ability as Entertainers Can
not be Excelled In any
The Gentlemen as Wall-Flowers.
Last night the second leap year ball
was held at Fitzgerald's hall. It was
cert unly one of the grandest events of
the Benson nnd much appreciated by all
who participated. The ball was given
in honor of the visiting ladies in the city:
Misses Lou Engel and Anna Breed, of
Hustings; Ida Martin, of Canton, Ohio;
Mrs. Gerrans, of Lincoln; and Miss
Lehman, of Omaha.
The following named young ladies
officiated as reception committee and
flor managers: Katie Ilcmple, Cora
Wayman, Irene Patterson, May Weck
haeh, Hattie Latham, Maggie Campbell,
Georgie Oliver, Dora Ilerold.
The young men apparently enjoyed the
situation and realized how pleasant it
was to act as decorations to the wall. The
affair was conducted by the youug ladies
in a manner which influenced the young
men to believe that they were still cap
able of undertaking a greater task re
cognizing all their leap year privileges.
No yung man present would attempt to
rival his escort as an entertainer, and all
were of the opinion that many did
remarkably well, considering a limited
experience. Since the first party given
by th; young ladies on this, (heir eventful
year, they have improved, and with that
improvement and encouragement of sue
cess, they will undoubtedly run their
leap year boats ashore before they sink.
Should any of them cast anchor for
mother term of four years; they may
Irift away and lose their course, with no
available means f rescue. We trust that
such will not prove true, but that
'he young ladies will pilot their barque
hrough on time. The party did not
reak up until the "we sum' hours of
the morn," each lady filling her program
i twenty-four dances.
About twelve o'clock the ladies invited
riends to partake of a repast, to which
rhey did justice.
About fifty couples were present, and
the floor was only large enough to ac
commodate the crowd, the entire com
pany joining in the grand march, which

THE SPLIT IN NEW YORK.
A Plattsmouth Citizen Writes to
the Proprietors of the Fair

Concern Ins the Democratic Party
Split. The Reply.
Mr. H. D. Jackson, of the Young
Men's Republican club, of this city, to
learn the faces and satisfy himself con
cerning the newspaper reports to the
effect that the manufacturing firms of
Deland & Co., of Fairport, N. Y., nnd
H. C. Faber, of Ulica, N. Y., had turned
their political support from Cleveland
and were supporting Harrison and Mor
ton, on account of their tariff views,
wrote to both establishments nnd received
prompt and earnest answers. DcLand &
Faiki'okt, N. Y., Oct. 10, 1888.
Mr. II. D. Jackson, Plattsmouth, Ne
braska. Dear Sir: I have your es
teemed letter of the 10th, and in reply
would saj': If the newspapers of Ne
braska have reported that I am supporting
Governor Hill with all my strength, and
at the same time that I am opposing the
election of Cleveland with the same
earnestness, they have it right. I am a
life-long democrat, but I cannot support
the Mills bill, which is a part of the plat
form, as I know that if It should become
a law it would ruin many of our most
important industries. I enclose a clip
ping from our paper showing that there
are many like me in this part of the
country. Mr. Hunt is in our senatorial
district, although in another county.
We have served together for a number
of years on this committee.

In reply to Mr. Jackson's letter, II. C.
Faber. who is proprietor of an extensive
trunk and traveling bag factory at Utica,

Utica, N. Y., Oct 16th, 1888.
Mr. II. D. Jackson Dear Sir: Yours
of October 13th, inst, is just received,
and in rep'y to your inquiry, would say
that the enclosed clipping from the Utica
Herald are my sentiments and belief.
And on the 6th of November next, demo
cratic Utica will give a large majority
for Harrison and Morton.

A Switchman Badly Injured.
Last night about 11 o'clock, Ellis
Qoolsby, a switchman, in the B, & M.
yards, met with what will probably prove
a fatal accident. He tried to make a
side coupling of two box cars, and stum
hied over a clump of cinders. When he
fell his left foot was run oyer, and the
right leg coming in contact with the
brake beam was badly mashed. The
surgeon informs us that a wheel must
have passed over the right leg as the
bone was badly crushed. It wiil be
necessary to amputate one limb, and it is
feared they will have great difficulty in
saving .the other. His mother is a widow
lady and dependent on him for s'ipport.
It is not known yet what chances he has

dona more for the advancement of science
and the skillful application of glasses
than any known person in the United
States. He has saved thousands from
partial and total blindness by the equal

and cases which Lave heretofore been
pronounced as impossibilities by others
arc new the happiest mortals, possessing
vigerous eyesight. Toe most skeptical
must admit he is a master of .bis profes

We have many such who rather tear
down than build up and such persons
are poisened with venom of prejudice
illiteracy and self conceit rather than to
own up their mistake and selfishness.
Such have no charity in their souls to
see their neighbors or friends saved from
the doom of blindness.

Oponlng of the Opera House
Last Wednesday was a red letter day
in the history of Weeping Water. The
grand opening of the Chase Opera House
took place on that evening in the rendi
tion wf the fine military drama, "The Spy
of Atlanta," by Prof. C. II. Colson and
his assistants from Chicago, assisted by
about 50 of our best home talent. The
play met with such favor that after the
"Dutch Recruits" had been played for
two nights, the "Spy of Atlanta" was re
peated on Saturday night to a large au
dience. These plays ure both as fine
military dramas as are on the boards to
day, and with Prof. Colson in the l;ad
iug roles, with his excelleut support, they
were last week acted to perfection.
The opera house is owned by MeFsrs.
Chase and Upton. It has a seating
capacity of about 400 ami is furnished
with the best seats to be hud. The
scenery is elegant. The entire building
is heated with a large furnace located in
the basement. Everything about the
house is of the most modern design and
no money was spared to complete it in
the best manner possible, at a cost of be
tween five nnd six thousand dollars.
Everybody say? it is the finest house of
its size they ever saw. The proprietors
are to be congratulated for their energy
and enterprise. The city is to be con
gratulated on the possession of such a
model of beauty and workmanship in the
opera house. The people appreciate this
enterprise on tho part of Messrs. Chase &
Upton, and will, we hope, lend them
every support. First-class theater, com
panies can now be secured, and the peo
ple can be comfortable, while they are
at the same time benefited by listening to
first-class entertainments. Weeping
