'Prof. Rakt straw does not seem to
be losing any time in the way of
cleaning out. He had hardly been
installed before he released Miss
Jessie Sinclair, one of the teachers
who upon his (Rakesl raw's) recom
mendation, was given a position by
Prof, rarinelee, and is a teacher of
more than ordinary ability. Ye.-ter-day.inorning
Rakestraw informed C.
Hruce, who was a graduate and af

that he could' pack his trunk and

The fifteenth annual encampment
of the department of Nebraska met
at Columbus at l o'clock yesterday
afternoon. The convention was
called to order by Commander
Teeter. Mayor Kagatz turue 1 the
city over to the old veterans in a
abort speech and welcomed them to
Columbus. Commander Teeter re
sponded in behalf of the G. A. R.
The evening sessions was taken
up with resolutions, reports and
the appointment of committees. A
ringing and eloquent resolution
was passed, requesting the Nebras
ka Columbian commission to do its
utmost to have Nebraska well rep
resentea at the world's fair.
A $40 collection was taken up to
assist the Sons of Veterans at their
next annual camp at David City.
An adjournment was taken until 9
o'clock this morning. The various
candidates for department com
mander are on the ground and are
working hard for the prize, but it
cannot be said with any degree of
certainty wh will be the winner.
There is quite a struggle among
the comrades for the privilege of
representing the order of the state
at the Grand Army of the Republic
encampment at Washington, Judge
Pat O'Hawes being one of the prom
inent candidates for the position.
There are about 1.CC0 delegates to
the Grand Army of the Republic

Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. 17.
The state encampment of the G. A.
R. to-day adopted a resolution in
dorsing the record of General R. A.
Alger and scoring the New York
Sun for the article recentty pub
lished reflecting upon his military
career. The resolution is as fol
lows: "Resolved, That the article pub
lished in the New York Sun reflect
ing on the military career of our
past commander-in-chief, Russell
A. Alger, is a libel upon the fair
name and well earned reputation
of a distinguished soldier and
patriot; a disgrace to American
journalism and an insult to the
grand army of the republic, which
should -be condemned by everj'
citizen of the United States.
Resolved, That the department
commander be instructed to tele
graph the above resolution to Gen

The Correspondent of the Kansas
City Sunday Sun Gets a Sample
of Current Public Opinion.
' Tiie good people of Nebraska City
evidently don't seem to have .any
use for such personal notices as
they get from the pen of the corres
pondent of the Kansas City Sunday
Sun. The foil jwing is taken from
the Press of that city.
"Young Tollc, who claims to be
the correspondent for the filthy
sheet known as the Kansas City
Sunday Sun had a bit of palpafcje
experience yesterday that should
show him just how his paper is re
garded in the city. Tolle is a young
sneak, who prowls about nosing in
to other people's business, ami then
reports to some person of greater
ability who writes up the matter in
the most breezy as well as dirty
newspaper style. There seems to
be no doubt that the man who as
sists this dispicable wrecth in his
ungodly' work is an old time news
paper man, but who it is has not
been positively- learned.
Tolle glories in the supposed
power he holds at his dis
posal, and let out ttiat he would
"write up" Casper La tier for next
Sunday's issue. Mr. Lauer is not a
man to stand upon ceremony, and
meeting Tolle on the street, ques
tioned him upon the matter. Tolle
grew impudent and Mr. Lauer
grasped his wrist so firmly that
Tolle felt his feelings hurt. He ac
cordingly went straight and swore
out a complaint for Lauer's arrest
on the charge of assault before
Judge Katon. Yet at last report
there was found no one to serve the
As the matter stands, the people
are getting to know so much about
the disgraceful methods of the Sun
and its representatives that public
sentiment will support anyone who
deals summarily with young Tolle
and his unnamed assistant. Such a
sneak having no responsibility to
law or personal rights has little
claim upon their protection, The
Press suggests that he be ostracised
from connections with people as he
was j esterday, when he came to the
oflice to word his complaints. He
was promptly rejected."

Elegant Silv r Water Set
A Pleasant Evening
The friends of Mr. and Mrs. Bird
Critchfield gave them a surprise
farewell reception last evening at
the Odd Fellows' hall, in tie Fitz
gerald building. There were about
300, big and little, people present,
who passed the evening in social
chat and games of all kinds.
About 9 o'clock a committee
called at the home of Mr. Critchfield
and informed him that he and his
esti (liable wife were wanted down
town, and escorted them to the hall,
this being the first intimation they
had ofanything of the kind. They
were completely taken by surprise.
After arriving at the hall and greet
ing their friends they were escorted
to one end of the large hall, where
Judge A. N. Sullivan, on behalf of
those present, presented them with
a beautiful silver water pitcher and
service, which bore the following
inscription: "Presented to Mr. and
Mrs. Bird Critchfield by their many
friends, February 17, 1892."
Mr. Critchfield, in accepting, re
sponded in the following well
"Dear Friends I regret our ina
bility to express our sincere thanks
and gratitude to our vast number of
friends who have partaken in this
most complete surprise, yet it is use
less for me at this time to under
take to express our feelings on this
most pleasant occasion. We had,
to some extent, broken off the ties of
friendship which so often hinder
persons from leaving a community,
and, indeed, often cause the most
unpleasant feelings of homesick
ness, but this occasion onl' reacts
and reassures us that we shall be
missed in your city, wheie our
stay of the past four years has
brought us in close association with
nearly as many real friends and
neighbors as during the previous
thirty years of our lives. We only
want to dearly thank you, dear
friends, for the manjr courtesies
shown us, not only in the discharge
of the duties of my office, but as
citizens during our stay; also for
these beautiful presents which you
have given us, which probably
seem but a small token to you, but
to us are valued highly, and, indeed,
their value is beyond estimation in
our hearts; and we further assure
you that we will ever remember
our dear friends in Plattsmouth,
and if at any time any of you
should happen to be in the vicinity
of Elmwood you will find the latch
string hanging out for you. You
will always be welcome, and if the
house is not large enough to ac
commodate you, we will build

to an end some days ago, and having
no further use for the specimens he
had the jars and their contents re

and causing the spirits to form a pool,

by the peculiar antics of Sport. He
howled during half the night, which
was a strange contrast to his ordinary
good behavior, and when Gros went

unaccountable manner, snapping at

An interesting story is told how
George Westinghouse, the millionaire
inventor, obtained $1,000,000 when he
needed it badly. When the Westing
house Air-Brake Company was a new
concern the directors gave to Mr.
Westinghouse a paper vesting abso
lutely in his hands the power to fix the
Belling price of air-brakes. The object
was to cripple competitors. When
the Wrestinghouse Electric and Manu
facturing Company was in trouble
Mr. Westinghouse applied to the air
brake company for a loan of $500,000.
His application was refused and men
tion made of the fact that he owed the
air-brake company $650,000.
At the next meeting of the board
Mr. Westinghouse produced the paper
giving him the authority to fix prices.
Its existence had been forgotten and
the directors saw the importance of
gaining possession of it. Attorneys
were consulted to ascertain what could
be done. All said that the only thing
would be to make terms with Mr.
Westinghouse. Then he was asked
what he would take for the paper.
He said $1,000,000, stuck to the figure
and got it. The directors who refused
the loan of $500,000 and then paid
over $1,000,000 don't like this story,
but its truth is vouched for. Philadel
