This morning's World-Herald has
the following: "The heaviest eight
wheel passenger engine in America
was sent oilt of the Pnion Pacific
shops, today to pull the mail.
It was built at the shops from en

should be borne iii .iniiul that it
weighs ten tons more than the
Unin Pacific standard engines
and twenty "tons more than the
engine that run between Chicago
and Omaha. It , weighs LM.'MKHI

The engine stands high, the top
of its short -'diamond" smokestack

The Ledger Misrepresented.
Kditor Craves of the Union Led
ger comes back at The Nebraska
City News in the following manner:
"The Nebraska City News has a
"cute'' way of doing some things.
In its issue of the l'.Hh it clips from
the letter of our K'ock IUulfs corres
pondent anil credits it to The Led
ger, thus making us appear as a
strong supporter of W. J. Hryan.
We have no objection to The News
making use of our items, but when
it shows us up as espousing the
cause of Hryan, we kick. While
we esteem Mr. Hryan very highly
we find in Judge Field a man
whom we regard as his superior
in statesmanship and legislative
ability, hence Judge Field is our
choice in preference to Hryan. He
ing personally acquainted with
both gentlemen and having heard
them discuss the political issues,
we find no difficulty in reachingthe
conclusion that Field will do the
country more good than Hryan has
or can do."
The Board of Trade.
The following recommendation
is made by the board of health of
Plattsinouth.tbrough its chairman,
Dr. J. II. Hall:
(T.KANSU AM) KISIM IXT.
Cleanliness being- an essential
preventative of disease, and in view
of the great importance of thorough
disinfection, as a sanitary measure,
at a time when a cholera plague
seems so liable to come upon us,
possibly not later than next Hum
mer, every source of impurity
within and around thedwellingand
places of business of our citizens,
and to meet a want in regard to the
use of articles for this purpose, the
following brief statements and
formula have been prepared by
order of the board of health, and
offered with the earnest advice that
every family and every owner or
leasee of tenement houses or other
dwellings owe it to their sense of
duty, to enforce and encourage
thorough cleanliness and to keep
down all putrescetise and foul gases
by the free use of disinfectants.
First to remove and destroy by
either burning or deeply burying
every kind of tilth or offensive
For water closets, privy vaults,
drainage pipes and all indoor uses,
a strong copperas (sulphate of iron)
solution, in the proportion of two
pounds to one gallon of water, is
recommended by the board. Of
this solution add one pint to a pail
of water and this pour in each
vault, water pan, sink, drain or
place lor disinfection. It would
be better used every day, or
at least two or three times per week.
Copperas Doing cheap, (a cents per
pound) effective and odorless, is
especially desirable for indoor use.
For garbage yards, pig pens,
area ways, cellars, and all places
where dampness and mildew exsist,
quick lime maybe strewn over the
effluva, or dry lime maybe used in
the form of whitewash.
Fresh uir, free ventilation and
euulight should never be over-
looked as natural ineaiM of prevent

Opinion by Chief Justice Maxwell.
1. Where several common carriers
unite to form a line for the trans
portation of merchandise and re
ceive goods and give a through bill
of lading each carrier becomes the
agent of the others to carry into
effect the transportation and de
livery of the property.
2. The testimony tends to show
that the property in question-a
piano was injured through the
negligence of the defendants and
no one else;that they bad attempted
to settle the damages caused
thereby both before and after the
suit was brought; that they were
witnesses in two trials to recover
such damages and must have
known that they were ultimately
responsible for the same.
;i. In raich case knowledge of the
pendency of the suit and its object
and that if a recovery was had it
would be for the default of the de
fendants and no one else, is suffi
cient to impose upon the defend
ants the duty of making any de
fense they may have to the action
and in case they fail to do so the
judgment will be conclusive against
them as to the amount of the judg
ment. 4. The measure, of damages is the
amount of the judgment, interest
thereon and taxable costs.

Bryan Finds a Vastly Different Feel
inuThan bxlsted in His Raceof
Two Years AKO-Bryan
an Easy Mark.
Republicans Were Confident.
Considerable interest has been
felt at Weeping Water in the joint
debate between Judge Field anil
Hon. W. J. Hryan, billed to take
place yesterday. Doth democtals
and republicans have been eager
for the fray, the former because
they felt that no man treads western
soil who can stand before tl e im
agined invincible Hryan, and the
latter because they have always
claimed that the catch)- sophistries
of the young congressman may
fail be fore the logic of a forcible
speaker and a clear thinker. The)'
had learned to look upon Judge
Field as possessing the necessary
elements to meet Mr. Hryan, and the
result of the debate but made man
ifest the correctness of their faith.
J. M. Patterson of Plattsmouth,
chairman of the democratic central
committee, presided for the demo
crats. At IMiO he introduced Mr.
Hryan, who began work at once,
evidencing by his expediency the
fact that he had a large contract to
fulfill in on.' hour and fifteen min
utes. There was not that ease and
utter confidence the young man dis
played two years ago in his joint
debate here. He was not on the
front side of a prophecy of evil as
then, but behind it, and the young
man could not talk so glibly of
what would be.
He complained because Field had
attacked his record when at Lin
coln. He attempted to justify his
vote on the world's fair bill, saying
that he could not bring himself to
vote the money of the common peo
ple into the pockets of a rich corpo
ration. He tried to win the inde
pendents over by claiming that his
vote on the bill to grant the use of
government vessels to convey the
donation of the generous farmer to
the starving K'tissians corresponded
with the votes of their republican
representatives, and spent a good
share of the opening hour crawling
out of the hole his astute opponent
had driven hi u into. He acknowl
edged that he had not done much
for the old soldiers, but unlike his
opponent he had not defeated three
of them for a nomination to con
gress. lryau tried the old ch-.'stnut oi
propounding questions for Mr.
Field to answer in order to save
himself from the argumentative
uruuDing lie seemed to Know was
coining. His arguments against
the taritf and in favor of free coin
age of silver are too old in this vi
cunty to add imv laurels to his
standing as a debater. With a fine
oratorical flourish Hryan was done
with his lirst elTort.
Hon. O. Teft then introduced
Judge Field, who proceeded at once
! to handle bis opponent without
gloves. Field was a pleasant sur
prise to republicans, but to the
democrats an unpleasant one. He
began on Hryau's record, and no
wonder the young man eloquent
objects, for after bill introduced
came the words "no action." In
answer to the charge of Hryan that.
Field had defeated three soldiers
for a nomination to congress, Field
replied: "A democrat is very safe
in making such a charge as he
would never, in the conventions of
his party be likely to find three
union soldiers in that ;arty seeking
a nomination. He argued with ef
fect that the world's fair is an en
terprise of the people and the pur
pose of exhibiting the products of
the people for the advancement of
the material welfare of the people,
and not an institution for the en
richment of a corporation; and no
true American should vote against
a bill to strengthen it. He would
have differed from Hryan in the
chartering of the government ves
sels to carry relief to starving
Kussia, because he would not stop
the bountiful gifts of the western
tanner to save the government a
Hryan then read from McKinley's
speech to sustain a point in his
argument. Judge Field asked his
hearers to remember Hryau's speech
two years ago against everything
savoring of McKinleyism and to
note the change of heart. All the
arguments Hryan introduced
against rebates for free lumber, tor
free binding twine and for free
trade in general Field met to the
delight of his admirers and to the
confusion of democrats, for at this
time many were trying to convince
their neighbors that Hryan did not
say or mean that.
Field referred to the report of the
famous Peck, whom Hryau said j
was untrustworthy because Pc.

he hoped to embarass bim in the

his own party on much of anything

With an appeal to the patriotism
of his hearers to vote for that
which enhances the glory of the
nation and the material welfare of
themselves, Judge Field closed his
part of the debate with great credit
to himself aud to the eminent satis
faction of his admirers.
Hryau's closing was a rapid, run

little and had scarcely any effect
