Mrs. K. was a party to the plot and

nice musical selections.

Considerable talk was indulged in
yesterday by interested persons regard
ing a rumor that Superintendent Uig

ing done private work with railroad
employes. Tho charges aro made
against Mr. iiigne.l by T. A. II. Her

dent had a detail of men at work re
pairing IJuriington iJeaeh, a private
investment, and paid them by allowing
them lime in the monthly pay-checks
is-ued by the liurlingtoii. Another
charge i3 that h i brought the lako
steamer from He itrice to Lincoln with
out paying any freight on it. It is
c a: me 1 that these c'n nges have been
sent to Viee-l'resident Harris in Chi
cago and that Mr. Hurkey stands re idy
to furnish substantial proof.
Friends of Mr. H;rnell place no cred

vestigated ont-o and proven without
foundation. Slate Journal.
Tho county judge's office was crowded
with members of tho board of trade
and business men last evening. The
beet sugar question was discussed and
it was agreed that a special meeting
of the board should be had as soon as
the delegates return from the Fre
mont convention, in order to heal
th eir roport. The postottico building
matter came up, and C. Sherman
gave a very intelligent reason for our
not getting the coveted building at
once. His theory, that we must in
crease tho reveuuesof the office until
we can first get a free delivery system.
is doubtless correct. Mr. Cochran, of
South Omaha, made a pleasant
little talk on sugar neets and
industries generally. On motion
of Dr. Humphrey a vote of thanks was
unaminously tendered Hon. .1. I J.
