Some New York capitalists offered
to build a distillery at Plattsmoutn,
provided the city would give them a
certain sum of money as a bonus. The
amount was subscribed after a great

Fred Gorder went to Plattsmouth
last week, and as he did not return on
schedule time, some one here started
the report tiiat he was married. Now
if Fred ever does gets married the af
fair will be celebrated out here with a
barbecue or some other appropriate
demonstration, no matter whether he
is mayor or not. So when the report
of the splicing was noised about town,
nine of Fred's friends clubbed together
and sent a congratulatory telegram
This brought Fred home on the first
train, for he was anxious to see what
was up. Fred informed the boys that
there was nothing in it, and advised
them not to waste their money these
hard times telegraphing on uncertain
ties. He had to set 'em up, just the
same. Weeping Water Republican

llnzt Saw-Two Flngr OfT.
Thomas Sullivan, living six miles
southeast of town, a brother of Judge
A. N. Sullivan of this city, met with
and accident this morning which cost
him two fingers and a part of anothc r
off his left band.
Just how the accident happened Mr
Sullivan does not know, but thinks
that carelessness on his part had very
much to do with it. He was assisting
in operating a circular wood saw, and
in some way his left hand came in con
tact with the saw, severing the last
two lingers and a portion of the middle
linger from his hand.
After the accident Mr. Sullivan came
to town and Dr. Humphrey attended
to his lacerated hand.
Where there is a majority there need
be no filibuster. It is eatirely evident

the bill for the repeal of the Sherman
law, was loudly denounced as un

New York and New Kngland are de
termined to defeat every effort for the
rehabilitation of silver. Ever so slight
concession as the coinage of silver al
ready bought and paid for and against
which no certificates are outstanding
meets their bitter hostility. In the in
terior, on the contrary, the rem'netiza
tion of silver is generally demanded.
The silver question and the tariff ques
tion are held of equal importance. The
farmers hare learned that the tariff
compels them to pay more for what'
they buy, while the single gold stand j

they sell. By'the one device they are !
