J. Sterling- Morton has been the
hero of many battles, he has been
licked out of his boots "steen" times
and always come up smiling making
tho same talk for principle. Today he
is convinced that free silver at the
ratio of 16 to I would bankrupt the
country, and he is not the kind of a
man to accept such a doctrine even
though the dose be offered afl a panacea
by the democratic party to which he
has been wedded since infancy. He
boldly speaks out against the danger
ous theory and is prominently men
tioned as the sound money candidate
of tho democratic party for the presi
dency. If he should accept the nomi
nation tho free silver question would
at once receive its quietus, confidence
would be restored and an era of pros
perity would oe entered upon.

Heath of Johnny Stevens.
Johnny Stevens, a resident of this
cit for years, went out to the Soldiers'
home at Grand Island not long 6ince
to pass his declining days, but the
sands of life were nearly run and on
Tuesday he passed to his final reckon
ing in the other world. The inter
ment took place yesterday, Charley
Parmele being the only friend of
earlier days that was present Johnny
used to work for the Parmele's and
they did not forget his faithful ser
vices. Ho was a member of Tom
Potter's company, the great railway
manager, in the war, and came
hero soon after his discharge,
where he bogun working for C.
U. Parmele. Mr. Parmele sent
him to Grand Island last April,
where he could be well cared for and
for a long time he has seen to it that
he was made comfortable, as he was
both feeble and penniless.
Mr. Morton Will Speak
Secretary J. Sterling Morton, who
was requested by some three hundred
of our citizens to deliver an address on
the financial question, has concluded
to grant their request and will speak
at the opera house on Saturday even

interesting speaker and particularly
will bo so on this question, which he
has made a life stud v.

Mrs. Rhodie Noah, of this place, was
taken in the night with cramping
pains and the next day diarrhoea set
in. She took half a bottle of black
berry cordial but got no relief. She
then sent to ine to see if I had any
thing that would help her. I sent
her a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and
the first dose relieved her. Another
of our neighbors had been sick for
about a week and had tried different
remedies for Diarrhoea but kept get
ting worse. I sent him this same

quired to cure him. He says he owes

which gave very speedy relief. We

for dj'sontery, summer complaint,

The Old Settlers' Reunion.
The eight annual reunion of old set
tiers will bo held at Union August 13
and 14. A man who missos an old set
tlers' reunion this year is neglecting
an important part of his education.
There will be eloquent orators and
bands of music. And there will be
more. There will be a chance to
mingle with the men and women who
have done most to make Nebraska. A
man who could not put in a couple of
days at an old settlers' reunion simply
listening and come away with material
for two months' thinking would do
narrow and barren in mind. A meet
ing of the committees will bo held to
morrow at which it is expected to
complete tho arrangements. A grand
time is anticipated.
A Rate War.
Present prospects favor a lively rate
war in passenger business during the
coming month between Chicago and
Salt Lake and intermediate points.
The western passenger agreement has
been boldly broken and efforts of two
days have failed to patch up tho trou
bles. Low rates are already oponiy
offered by one road, a big commission,
practically operating as a cut in rates,
is being paid by another, and the re
maining through lines are reduced to
the necessity of falling in line or get
ting none of the business.
The trouble began over the rates for
tho meeting of fire chiefs of the United
States, which is to be held in Salt
Lake beginning August 10. Western
roads decided to make special rates
for tho meeting on tho homeseekers'
excursion plan, tho fare being the
cost of a one way ticket plus $2. All
the lines were quietiy working up
business for the occasion when the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul an
nounced an open rate of $30 from Chi
cago to Salt Lake and retuon, that
being $14.50 below the agreed rate on
the homeseekers' excursion plan.
About the same time the Union Pa-,
cific jumped over the traces and an
nounced that it would run choap side
trips, give stop-overs and other privi
leges which it had originally been de
cided should be denied. The St. Paul
gave as its reason for allowing the
low rate that the Burlington was of
fering a big commission on the sale of
its tickets, a commission which prac
tically acted as a reduction of $14.50
and that it had taken the protestod
action in self-protection. The Bur
lington, on the other hand, declares
the St. Paul had secured an immense
proportion of the business by offering
thing3 which the road had decided
against; that it had tried to get legis
lation in its favor, and failing, had
been obliged to make tho reductions.
