An Interesting Letters From a
Former Plattsmouth Boy
to His Sister.
The following very interesting
It tier in regard to the actual
eou.Jitioiis in Vera Cruz, Mexico,
has been received here by Mrs.
Anthony Nesladek, from her
brother", Walter Haines, a former
I'ialtj-mouth boy, who is at prcs
eiirwith the signal corps in the
warlike southern republic. Mr.
Haines is well remembered here,
alth..uj-'h it has been several years
.-:nce h. removed from this city.
The b tter is one that tells freely
tin- actual conditions that pie
vail there:
Vera Cruz, Mexico, May 31.
Hear Siter Your kind letter
r- ad and was ylad all were well.
This war is turning out to be a
j ke, frm the way things look to
K:4 soldiers and sailors. It is
about the same as it was when
v.. landed here, only things are
i, i as they should be according
t. the naties' point of view, as
tl ey don't savy this eb-aning-up
I ,'oVess; they are all being vac-
luated and imule to clean up in
fiieral. I suppose that this is as
loan as this city ever was and
eer will lie. I am stationed about
two miles from the terminal
l; -a biuarlers and in one of the
Waters-pierce Oil Co.'s otlices;
tl e headquarters of the Fourth
ii. fantry are here and this is half
a mile from one of their outposts.
Suppose you folks hear a dozen
different reports ami all kinds of
lumors that are not true, and it
will always be that way, but the
only way to get the right of it is
be right on the job. Our wire
k is installed on a passenger
cnai li and we run through the
federal lines every day. twice in
tr forenoon and in the after
noon, niakinir the trip out to the
gip in the traek where they have
it torn up, and bring back the
iefu-'ees who come down from
th- city on the Mexican railroad.
The; train proceeds through the
li with a white flag and we are
i:-'t mole-ted by them. The navy
has four hydro's here and they
do the scouting. We have all our
outposts and the trenches all
fixed up and I don't think all the
Mexicans in the country could
trke one of them. The -poor devils
do-fl want to fihf they are
made to. They are starving, and
I look for them to come in and
give up any time now, as the rebs
are pressing them a little closer
very day. and will sooner or
1 : f or lrive them in. It sure is a
strange state of affairs, and that
I think we will be a biur time try
ing to straighten out, if we ever
do. Say, Sis, if you will read
what Jack London has to say in
Collar's Weekly the 23d of this
month, entitled "With l-'unston's
Men." I think that you will have
it pretty straight, as he has put
it down right. The pictures of
his. and the line-up he gives is
about as correct as you can get
it. so get a copy of it, if you have
pot already one. Yes. if. is cer
tainly a mixed-up affair and I
gues it will be some time before
we will be back o the states, at
least that's my opinion of it.
Well. I will mail you a copy of
today's Herald ami you can see
where they allowed the fierman
ship Ypiranga to unload those
arms at Puerto, Mexico, that
means encouragement to Hue
rta's men, but from all reports as
to their way of lighting they will
waste nine out of ten cartridges
before they make a hit.
The men are very anxious to
do something or go back home;
I bey all holler, "War is li I,"
and I guess it is. I will send you
a few postals of the prison, San
Juan De I'lloa, soon. It was a
si'-rht to see awful, but it is all
cleaned up now and thousands
go to see it all the time.
(Jive my regards to (hc4 folks
and write soon, as we like to hear
from our homes. It takes the
mail 3fi hours to come from Gal
veston to this port; the destroy
ers carry it for us. You ought to
get this about the rth of June.

Last evening Constable O. W.
Clark arrived in the city bringing
with him Henry Cook, a stranger,
who claims to be from South
Omaha, and who for the past
week has been staying in the vi
cinity of Union. The man is
evidently decidedly off in the up
per story and his stories of his
being pursued by large crowds of
men who threatened his life
greatly frightened the residents
at the farm of Mrs. A. J. Ander
son, where the man was working
for a few days. The trouble was
first noticed when he reported
having seen a large number of
men crawling under the fence in
the pasture at the Anderson farm,
and an investigation was made,
but no men were found, and Mr.
Clark was summoned, and to him
the man related a harrowing
story of how the farm was sur
rounded by armed men, hiding
behind bushes and generally an
noying him. The county attorney
was notified of the situation and
advised that the man be brought
here, where the authorities could
look after the case ami see that
he was placed where he could not
harm himself or anyone else.
Word has been received that
.Mr. and Mrs. David G. White of
Missoula, Mont., will arrived in
Lincoln the last of this month en
route for Washington, I. C Mr.
While being transferred from the
U. S. forest service district head
quarters at Missoula to the gov
ernment headquarters at Wash
ington. Both Mr. and Mrs. White
are well known here. Mrs." While
was formerly Miss Gertrude Mc
Kinjey of Crete, and their wedding
will be remembered by many as
one of the social events of last
winter. Mr. White has numerous
friends here who will be glad lo
congratulate him upon his pro
motion and success. He is a
member of the Delta Tau Delta
fraternity and' a graduate and
post-graduate of the state uni
versity. They will also visit at
both Crete and Plattsmouth before
leaving Nebraska. State Journal.
The success of Mr. White in his
chosen field will be the source of
great pleasure to his friends here,
where he was born and reared to
manhood, and those knowing his
splendid qualifications realize that
he is eminently qualified to till
any position to which he may be
called upon lo take up in the for
est rv service.

This afternoon John Cory de
parted for Omaha, where he will
join the other members of the
"insurgent" Woodmen who will
leave at (5 o'clock over the North
western en route to Toledo, where
they will attend the head camp of
the Modern Woodmen of America,
which will convene there Tues
day. At the recent convention at
Hastings, which was controlled
by the insurgents, Mr. Cory was
selected as the delegate from the
First congressional district by the
convention, while the Talbot or
stand-pat delegates, who boiled
the convention, picked Henry H.
Goring as their representative
from the First district. Hoth of
these gentlemen are members of
Cass camp of this city. Dr. E. W.
Cook, state medical director of the
Modern Woodmen will also be in
attendance at the Toledo camp
and left yesterday for that place,
where the head officers are ar
ranging the details of the camp
and preparing for the work of
organizing. The victory at the
camp is claimed- by bolh the
sf and-patters and insurgents, but

From Saturday's Daily.
The news of the death of I. X.
or Nye Heading as he was better
known here, was received in this
city yesterday. Mr. Heading, who
was a foreman of a paint gang of
the Burlington, was struck near
Chaleo Thursday evening by
Burlington train No. 12 and in
stantly killed. From what details
of the accident that could be re
ceived it seems that Reading was
endeavoring to get his handcar
off the track when he was struck
by the onrushing passenger train
and killed. Be was well known
here, as he resided at Pacific
Junction with a married daugh
ter, who, together with a son and
two other daughters, is left to
mourn his loss. He was about ir
years of age. The matter of the
accident, is being investigated by
Ihe Burlington.
Some very fine western cattle
were marketed at Kansas City last
week, being shipped from the vi
cinity of Murray, this county, ami
they brought Ihe lop prices on Ihe
market, as they were exception
ally fine stock and in the best of
condition. The shippers were W.
J. Philpot, who hail two loads. 1.
511 pounds, and averaging S.7
per hundred; J. A. Brown, one
load, 1, 5 55 pounds average, at
!?8.83, and J. W. Philpol, one
load, l,i70 pounds average, at
sS.811. These cattle were pur
chased in Wyoming and proved
good gainers, adding upwards of
500 pounds in less than six
mouths. This certainly speaks
well for the cattle that are fatten
ed by the Cass county shippers
and the owners of the slock are
well pleased with the showing

The county commissioners,
sitting as a board of equalization,
yesterday had a very lively ses
sion in looking over the various
claims presenled to them for con
sideration. City Attorney Tidd,
appearing' before the board, asked
that the assessment of the Ne
braska Lighting company be in
creased $7,000 on the valuation
returned to the assessor; the
Lincoln Telegraph & Telephone
Co.. $25,000 over their returns,
and the Plattsmouth Water Co.,
$5,000 increase over the figures
given in. This is to cover the
improvements and valuation
which it is alleged should be tax
ed against the corporations. The
city attorney also asked that the
land east of the depot, on which
Thomas Stokes is located, be
stricken from the tax list of the
county, as the City of Platts
mouth claims title to the land
that Mr. Stokes has settled on and
which has been in controversy for
the past, two or three vears be
tween the city ami Mr. Stokes.
The board decided o set Mondav.
