Reasons why an
As the extra session agitation is
creating quite a stir in this county
and as it would likelX please a good
many of the citizens of PlaUmouth
and Cass county to know how
Senator S. L. Thomas slood
on the question, the reporter
cornered Senator Thomas Monday
afternoon before he had time to tie
his team to a post and before he had
time to tret out of the buiigy, and
a conversation something like this
"Senator, you have, no doubt, re
ceived a communication from Gov
ernor Boyd regarding the advisa
bility of callingan extra session of
"Yes, I have received such a com
munication." "Have you any objections to TllE
HERALD publirhing the governor's
CJimmi nicul ion'.'"
"No, I have not, ami if TiK Iki;

publication I have no objection.'
"Now then, Senator, as the article
wouhl be incomplete without you
iiusive'-, what is the matter of lllE
Hkk-ald publishing your answe
"Why, yes, 3-011 can publish m
answer if you desire."
Following is the letter received by
Senator Thomas from the governor
K:;ecut-ve Depakt.vuxt, Lix
co',n, Feb. UU, lSUI-JJir sir
Would vou have the kindness to
advise me by return mail you
jp-nion as to whether, in your
judgment, it is advisable for me to
call an extra .session of the legisla
tuie, and if so, what subject or sub
lects should, in your opuiou, oe
embodied in said call. Also whether
3-011 think the members of the le
isiaiure would agree cpon a rasoo
aole maximum rate bill, say a re
duct ion from the present tariff rate
often to 20 per cem. iHost truly
yours, J. E. Boyd, Governor.
S. L. Thomas, Esq., PlaUsmouth
I3y a careful perusal of the above
the reader will notice that Governor
Bovd asks Senator Thomas what
subject or subjects, should be em
bodied in a call if one should be
made for an extra session. Then
the governor goes on and asks Mr.
Thomas if he thinks the members
of the legislature would agree upon
a reasonable maximum rate bill
say a reduction of ten to twenty per
cent. If governor Boyd is sending
out letters to members of the legis
lature for their opinion as to what
should be embodied in the call for
an extra session, why does he jump
in and tell them what lie is going
to call an extra session for? The
time tor him to make an explana
tion should be in his proclamation.
His epistle looks like he had al
ready made up his mind what the
extra session would be called for.
If he had left out the part in his
letter relating to the maximum
rale bill, then it would have been
different. But to go and ask a mem
ber of the legislature what they
think should be embodied in the
call and then stating himself what
it should be looks like a very child
Following is Senator Thomas' re
ply to Governor Boyd's inquiry:
PLATTSMOUTH. Xeb.. February 120
Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your
honored inquiry ot February liOlii.
In reply I desire to say that 1 am at
all times willing, both as an indi
vidual and in my ofhcial capacity,
to do my duty, and since the agita
tion of ane::tf-a session 1 have con
versed with ma 113' of my constitu
ents irrespective of party and eu
deavored to obtain a concensus of
opinion upon whictt 1 can safely
and intelligently act. As a result
I am constrained to say that an ex
tra session is not desired by the
citizens of my county. You ask if
I thought the members of the legis
lature would agree on a reasonable
maximum rate bill from tiie pres
ent tariff of irom ten to twenty per
cent. In answer would say that up
on many items such a reduction
would be just aud impart'al as be
tween the people and railroads; up
on many oi her items the reduction
would not be sufficient, and still
upon others it would be too much.
Individually I would be willing to
agree upon any bill which would
fix ihe rates at a reasonable tigure
and which would be just
between both parties. As
to what is reasonable, the con
servative members ot the two
houses and 1113-self would agree but
as to what tiie extremists would
consider a reasonable reduction
would be so much at variance with
the view of the conservative element
that I th'nk it would be impossible
with my former experience with
them, to agree. The state has been
in a practical turmoil and exc'le
mentso as to largely unsettle busi
ness relations, for some lime past,
and althe present time I see no
such discord or iicilou as should
alarm anyperson or call for
immediate action, nor before
the next regular session; in
the meantime all who are interested
could mature theif plans and more
fully digest the subjects in hand so
as to meet the approval of our con
st tuents. The expense of having
an fxtra session would be large and
without giving the tax payers nn
relief than that which couid be giv
en them at the next regular session
This is ttiy strongest reason for op
posing an extra session and is the
general objection among the peo
ple. Holding these views as I io, it is
unnecessary for me to enter upon
the question of what other subjects
should be contained in the call if
one were made, as I think, the two
mentioned are the only ones the
p ople are vitaly interested in.
t rusting that you see your duty as
I see mine, I am yours respectfully
S. L. Thomas.
To Hon. James K. Boyd,
THAT WONDtRFUL LasT NAIL
Mrs. Potter Palmer Will put the
Finishing Touches on ihe Wo
man's Building with Costly
Hammr .and bpuve.
Mrs. Potter Palmer, president of
the bdard of lady ma jagers of the
exposition, as already announced,
will drive the last uyil in the build
ing to be known as the Woman's
building. This nail will be fur
nished by the women of Montana
a I'd w'll be a ery wonderful one,
as indicated by the description cf
it by the Helena, Montana, Indepen
dent: "The nail lias been so made
as to form tiie back or cross bar of
a brooch, which is to be a shield
beariugthe coat of arms of Mon
tana reproduced in native gold, and
the S3'iubolical figures will be made
of ihe same metal, but of different
colors The waterlaJl in the fore
ground will be of light colored
gold sunk into the shield, and the
plough and the pick, standing at
loot of the falls, will be of a (Jarker
shade, as will be the background
or relief. The wreath surrounding
the escutcheon will be of native
gold, aud the figures of the two
men supporting the whole on either
side will also be of the same rich
yellow gold. Underneath will be
he scroll, bearing the motto of the
state, "Oro 3' Plata," In the two up
per portions of the wreath two Mon
tana sapphires will be inserted.
Instead of merely engraving the
ligures, each will be wrought separately-
and then fastened together,
making the task of shaping the
brooch not only a delicate, but
exceedingly difficult one, and oue
that will require much skill aud pa
tience. To Mrs. J. E. Richards of Butte
belongs the credit of the happy
idea of making the last nail oue of
such iuierest. In design the nail
which is being made by a Butte
jeweler, will be the counterpart of
an ordinary twelve-penny nail and
will be composed of three strips
with silver iu the center and the
copper and gold on either side.
The nail and the brooch are dis
tinct articles and after the former
has been driven it will be drawn
irom the wood, fastened to the
brooch and presented to Mrs. Pal
The women of Xebraska have
unde -laken to furnish the hammer
with which this "last nail will be
driven. A description of the ham
mer has not 3'et been given but it is
the intention to make it worthy of
the aristocratic nail with which it
will be brought in contact by Mrs.
Palmer. It has been suggested
that it be made of native Xebraska
wood, inlaid with gold silver and
The Noss Family
The Daily Progress of Clarksville
Teuu. Speaks iu the hisrhest man

A good audleuce assemble at the
opera house last evening to see the
Xoss Family in their musical novel
ties and "A cjuick Match." The en
tertainment was very pleasing and
refined throughout. Misses Bertha
and May in" Won't you come outand
play," especial' pleased the audi
ence. The mandolin orchestra and
he saxophone quintei.e made some
exceedingly fine music, the latter
being encored twice. The "Sleigh
Ride Party'' by the family orches
tra wasj beautiful. Every number
is worthy of mention but space for
bids. This entertainment concluded
with the two-act musical comedy
"A Cji.ick Match," introducing coni
cal complications and perplexities
illustrative of modern courtship
and matrimony. The acting of II.
Xoss, impersonatiog the servant
man, and Ferd Xoss, as Arthur
Fita KazzJe, the. dude, was espec
ially good, affording as they did
much amusement for the audience.

Oh, j es. Hob is a cat the big, bol
tailed eat of Mulberry street the fe
line John L. Sullivan of his quarter of
the town. Like John L. the original
! and other creatures endowed with
! genius, he has his little weaknesses,
and beer is chief among them. When
1 ever the alcoholic mania seizes upon
j Hob he will saunter down to the sa
loon at the corner of Houston street
and proceed to liquidate like any-other
"blood." Although he is far from 18
years of age, he does not find an3' dif
ficulty in getting served, and the way
he will rush the growler sometimes is
a caution and an example. Often he
1 will stay away from home for an en
tire week, and when he does return
the marks upon him show that he has
been indulging in his penchant for
lighting to a disastrous degree. He
will tackle anything up to a brindle
bull pup, and I do not know that he
was ever really beaten.
Once in a while Hob will go a-h tint
ing, lie will catch some hapless mouse
or rat, and will proceed to have fun
with it, boxing its ears ami, culling it
about to his own intense amusement,
if not that of his prey. At last, when
he has grown tired of playing with it,
Hob will kill it with a single blow.
Hut do you suppose that Hob will con
descend to eat it? Not much! Hob is
a high liver. He likes pate de foies
gras and truflles and porterhouse
steaks with mushrooms. Ife does not
care for plebeian rats and mice. Hut
Hob is good-hearted under his rough
exterior. After killing, the rat or
moiie he will go around the corner
and look up souk: tramp cat who is not
smart enough to catch mice himself,
and a moment later you will see that
tramp cat sneaking around to find and
carry off the carcass to make a tramp
If.it were not for Hob's disease of
drink he would be q'uite an ornament
to society. I wonder if anything can
be done for him.
The horn of the rhinoceros is noth
ing more than a protuberance com
posed f f agglutinated hair. Cut it in
two, and, examining its structure un
der the microscope, it will be found
that it is made up entirely of little
tubes resembling hair tubes. Of
course, these are not themselves hair,
but the struct lire is the s:ime. The
horns of the African rhinoceros some
times grow to the length of four feet.
From them the Dutch boers make
ram-rods and other articles.

it all we will at least raise some of it."
And then he wondered why the min
