    News From Washington Is Ex
pected Very Soon.
Editor Calhoun la Turned Down, but
Bryan Names the Man Toe Farm
ers' Institute Session Comes
to a Close at Nehawka.
Anxiously Waiting.
News from Washington concerning
the appointment of a democratic post
master for Plattsmouth hs been
anxiously looked for all day, but up to
the hour of going to press uothing has
been heard. It is generally given out
that the plum will fall to Mayor But
ler, but City Clerk Fox will remain in
the race until the very end.
When the nb"s concerning the
Lincoln office arrived this after
noon it was interpreted to mean
that the president had coucluded to
allow Mr. Bryan to name the post
masters within his district, while
others were of the opinion that a com
promise had been effected whereby
Bryan named the postmaster at Lin
coln, Morton at Nebraska City and
Boyd and Castor the local office. But,
as one good democrat remarked, "we
shall see what we shall see.'"
Calhoun Is Tarned Down.
A telegtam from Congressman
Bryan to The Journal this afternoon
brings the information that the presi
dent refused to appoiat Editor J. D.
Calhoun to be postmaster at Lincoln,
and requested Mr. Bryan to name an
other man for the position. The con
gressman named J. H. Hailey, and the
appointment was made and sent to the
senate for confirmation.
All through the fight for the Lincoln
office the name of Mr. Harley has
never been mentioned in connection
with the office, so that he was a dark
horse in the race. He is a druggist
by occupation, and is one of Lincoln's
leading business men.
The many friends of J. I. Calhoun
in the newspaper vineyard will be
sorry to learn of his failure to secure
the appointment.
Farmers at Xehawka.
The farmers' institute held in Ne
hawka Tuesday and Wednesday was
a great success. The men who were
sent by the Nebraska state university
gave the farmers a great deal of prac
tical information. The meetings were
well attended and a great deal of inter
est shown. Prof. Card gave some very
profitable information about grafting
and planting trees. Hon. S. C. Bas
set of Gibbon discussed "Dairying" In
a business way that aroused an inter
est which brought forth a number of
questions. Prof. Bruner of the state
university talked to the school children
about the different bugs and their hab
its of life and generation. He gave
the farmers some remedies for destroy
ing the cutworm, chinch bug and po
tato bug.
Hon. Charles Steele of Norfolk
talked on the "Sugar Beet Industry."
He showed the manner in which beetB
are raised, how to care for them and
the financial gain to be derived. It
was clearly brought out that it will be
impossible to continue the beet indus
try if the tariff and bounty are both
removed from sugar. Prof. Ingersol
came to fill the place made vacant by
the inability of Governor Furnas to be
present. The professor spoke upon
the general theme of the university.
He showed the relation it bears to the
people of the state. The Btate uni
versity is a child of the state, he
thought, and all its citizens ought to
feel free to apply to the university
upon any subject. The benefits to be
derived from an education and the
need particularly of books on agricul
ture for every young man and woman
was set forth very clearly.
Nebawka possesses some local talent
that added much to the interest of
things. Among the different papers
read were: "The Trimming of Fruit
Trees.'' Isaac C. Pollard; "Selecting
Seed, Rev. Mr. Fulcomore; "Moral
Culture for Boys," E. A. Kirkpatrick,
'?How to Make Farming Popular," D.
V. Foster; "Farmers Institutes," G.
F. Switzer; "Stock Raising," L. C.
Todd. Some choice music interspersed
here and there added much to the en
joyment. This is Nehawka's first in
stitute, but judging from present indi
cations it will not be her last. Every
one was well pleased with the meeting
and departed with a kinder feeling for
the head of Nebraska's great school
This evening, at seven o'clock, at
the home of County Commissioner
Geo. W. Young, in Mt. Pleasant pre
cinct, will occur the marriage of
Stephen &1. Davis and Miss Hattie J.
Toung, Rev. T. K. Surface officiating.
The groom is a son of Anderson Da
vis of Eight Mile Grove, one of Cass
county's prosperous farmers, and the
bride is a daughter of Commissioner
Young. The future home of the bride
and groom will be on the Con ally
farm, near Murray, and Tile Jour
nal extends congratulations and best
wishes in advance.
The Todd, Dundas & Sage bridge
company of this city had in a bid before
the county board of Nemaha county
far the county bridge work and were
beaten out by the narrow margin of
one cent a foot. Tom Crummel, the
Otoe county bridge contractor, was
the lowest bidder and was awarded
the work.
Cbet. H. Smith will be found in the

Lawyer J. H.IIaldeman, of Weeping
ing Water, was at County Judge Ram
say's court today arranging for a final
settlement in the estate of the late
Ann Allison, of which be is adminis
trator. Incidentally it might be proper
to mention that Mr. Haldeman is
planning to remove hither in a few
months to continue in the practice of
law in this city. Mr. Haldeman has
no property interests in the town, but
he was magnanimous enough to sub
scribe toward the distillery project.
Mr. Haldeman is welcome. There is
room for such men in our midst.
Wm.Eikenbary had a bath Wednes
day that he did not enjoy to any great
extent. While assisting in getting out
his supply of ice at the river he stepped
upon a large piece which had been
sawed, and the consequence can easily
be guessed. By the assistance of by
standers he crawled from the hole, and
suffered only a cool, refreshing bath in
the muddy waters of "Old Muddy."

Mrs. Palmer's Meeting;.
A full house greeted the evangelist,
Mrs. Anna Palmer, at the M. E.
church last evening. From the scrip
ture lessons she proved the importance
and power of God's spirit as a controll
ing influence in the hearts and lives of
Christian people; the efficiency of
united, earnest prayer, and with a
consecrated church the rum traffic and
its attendant evils would be banished
from our midst. Mrs. Palmer is a
fluent, ready, happy speaker, and held
the attention of the audience through
out the evening. It is safe to predict
much good will result from her week's
labors in Plattsmouth.

Will Petition Judge Dundy.
It is expected that representatives of
the American railway union will be in
Omaha Thursday to present to Judge
Dundy a petition signed by 5,000 em- j
ployes of the Union Pacific protesting
against the recent equalization wage
schedule ordered by the circuit court
of this district. Eugene Debs, presi
dent of the union, has wired the Om
aha union officials that be will be in
Omaha Thursday, and it is expected
representatives of unions on the en
tire system will be present to urge
Judge Dundy to withdraw the order
granted some days ago. In speaking
of the order Mr. Debs is represented to
have said:
"The court not only reduces wages,
but compels the employes to accept
the reduction. If they submit without
a fight their enslavement is accom
plished, and no possible plea can lift
them a thousandth part of an inch
above the dead line of degradation.
Federal judges are treading on dan
gerous ground. If they are not totally
mortgaged to their corporate bosses
they will take warning of the mutter
ings their cruel and infamous de
cisions are exciting. The American
railway union may be relied upon to
do its duty, totally regardless of Judge
Dundy. The real anarchists occupy
the federal bench. The issue is upon
us and I am in favor of facing it. If
the men are true to their manhood
they will rise as one man from end to
end of the system, to resent the
monstrous judicial outrage that strips
them naked of their guaranteed con
stitutional rights."
