TAKE ITS PLACE
The Burlington to Use Telephone
Principally on This Division
According to the Lincoln Journal ex
periment in the uses of telephones for
directing the movements of trains to
the exclusion of the telegraph are about
to be made in the west, according to a
Lincoln man. He declares that the
Burlington, Northwestern and Rock Is
land roads are now preparing to carry
on experiments along this line, by which
trains on certain divisions of the road
are to be handled by telephone exclus
ively for a certain period that results
may be obtained and noted.
It has been hinted recently that the
Lincoln division of the Burlington, or
some busy part of it, is to be dispatched
by telephone for a period, but official
announcements of this intention aie
lacking. Discussing this matter, how
ever, a railroad man says:
"The Burlington could handle the
greater part of its main line system
without the telegraph now without se
rious inconvenience. Should a strike oc
cur to put the train dispatchers who
use the Morse out of business, the tele
phones that now reach over the main
lines in all directions would be brcught
into use, orders would be transmitted
by telephone and trains would move
with astonishing regularity. It may
need such an emergency to prove the
value of the telephone in dispatching
The Summer Stomach.
The summer-stomach is quite differ
ent from the winter-stomach, not being
able to accept and digest as much food
and as strong food. Everything sours
and ferments in it quickly on account
of the excessive-heat. Our aim will be
then, to try, to equalize the outside with
the inside heat. This shows how fool
ish it is on a hot day to freeze the
stomach with ice cold drinks, or to over
load it with meat. Be careful!. As
soon as you will feel some trouble with
your stomach or with your intestines,
do not delay but use at once Triner's
Amer. Elixir of Bitter Wine. It will
give your stomachjthe necessary strength
to digest even heavy food. It is the
only remedy you can give to all members
of your family, because it contains no
injurious ingredients. Use it in all dis
eases of the digestive organs and as a
tonic in convalescense. At drug stores.

TROUBLE OH THE
One Clan Placed in the County
Dasiile to Cool Off.
There was excitement galore on the
street this afternoon coming out of the
fact of Frank Fitzgerald, who had been
drinking, discharging Glenn Scott, who
was running a wheel scraper, Frank
Fitzgerald being a foreman of the grad
ing. Glen Scott was told to go to work
by John Nardine, the general foreman,
and did so. This should have closed the
incident, but for the fact that W. H.
Scott, father of the young man driving a
team, asking Fitzgerald why he had dis
charged the boy. For reply Fitzgerald
used some very forcible language and
started for Scott, which resulted in a
rough and tumble fight between the
two men. The other workmen separated
them and Scott went away, but return
ed to his team, with which he was haul
ing sand, when Fitzgerald threw a pav
ing stone at him, which he dodged and
ran into L. B. Egenberger's store and
telephoned for the police. Frank went
up the street and was placed under ar
rest by Officer Rainey. Fitzgerald re
sisting arrest, the officer was assisted
by Sheriff Quinton. Mayor Gering,
who happened along, commanded the
officers to place Fitzerald in jail. He

Returns From the East.
R. B. Windham returned this morn

has been for the past week. Mr.

departed for Ann Arbor, Mich. Here
he was at the commencement exercises
of the school from which he graduated
at in 1872, meeting many of those whom
he had known in former years. He was

Rev. H. B. Burgess was a member, and
which numbered forty-eight when they
graduated. At the meeting there was

THE BOAT JAMES
Goes South Today on Regular Tri
The Omaha Bee of this morning says:
"The government snag boat James B.
McPherson arrived at Omaha at noon
Tuesday, after a stormy passage down
from Sioux City, which point the boat
left Monday morning. The boat is in
charge of Captain E. H. McFarland and
Pilot George G. Keith, both old-timers
on the Missouri river. The boat had to
tie up Monday night on account of the
storm between Omaha and Sioux City.
It will remain at Omaha until Wednes
day and will then go down to Kansas
City if it can get under the bridge at
Plattsmouth. The boat had to break
its smokestacks to get under the Doug
las street bridge.
"The river is at its highest stage for
over twenty years between" here and
Sioux City,'' said Captain McFarland.
"We will go from here to Kansas City
and snag back from that point as-soon
as the river falls. There are always
more or less in the river about the
same quantity that has existed for the
last thirty years. Many of the snags
lie deep in the sand, and are washed
out by. successive floods, so it is an in
terminable work keeping the river
clear. The government has three snag
boats at work on the Missouri. The
Mandan from Sioux City to Fort Ben
ton, the James B. McPherson from
Sioux City to Kansas City and the Mis
souri from Kansas City to St. Louis.
The work in this district is under the
charge of Captain E. H. Schulz of the
government engineer service."

Washington Star Writer Tells of the Resentful
Spirit of Western Republicans, and Look
for Great Defections to Bryan.
A special Washington correspondent
of the Omaha World-Herald says:
The western republicans are bitterly
resentful of the manner in which they
were treated in Chicago and at the fash
ion in which Speaker Cannon and other
reactionaries forced the nominatian of
Sherman, and bent the platform into one
of reactionism, is being made clear here
from many sources. This feeling of
bitterness is becoming alarming to re
publican leaders. A moet interesting
light is thrown on conditions by the
Washington btar, a conservative re
publican paper, whose leading political
writer, N. O. Messenger, is now in the
northwest and is writing today from St.
Paul. Mr. Messenger forecasts repub
lican defections in large numbers. He
says : '
"Progressiveness is the watchword;
opposition to what is summarized in the
word "standpatism" is a fever in the
blood. If, as the campaign progresses
the republicans should seem to lean away
from the radical policy of Roosevelt and
Taft, and reflect the purpose of the
standpat wing, personified in James S.
Sherman's candidacy, look out for loss
of republican votes in vast numbers.
They will go to Bryan in platoons.

radicalism of Cummins of Iowa.and La
Follette of Wisconsin is reflected strong
ly in all these states. Republican lead
ers on the ground are taking alarm at
condition, and will strongly present it
to the managers of the national and
congressional campaigns. There is no
mistaking its existence; it crops up
everywhere, and is stronger in republi
can than democratic ranks, for the
natural reason that the republicans
feel they have been overwhelmed, in
the Sherman nomination, by the "stand
patters," while the democrats have no
complaint against the radical stand of
their party, and leaders so far.
"I was interested to learn of the
storm of resentment which is sweeping
through this section against the selec
tion of Mr. Sherman for second place.
The antagonism does' not extend to him
personally, but is based upon the belief
that his nomination was dictated by a
group of men in congress who are
thought to be the personification of the
standpat idea. And in this connection
standpat does not alone refer to the
tariff ; it applies to the antagonism of
the house leaders to other policies of
the president, which to these people
out here spell reform and progress.
"Another feature which is expected
to work for harmony among the demo
crats is their confidence of victory, based
upon their knowledge of these condi
tions." Peter Keil, of Cedar Creek, was a
