Decoration Day Doings.
Yesterday was given over by Platts
mouth people to the paying of tribute
to the heroes who fought for the pre
servation of the nation in time of war
and whose remains now lie peacefully
resting in Oak Hill cemetery. A large
majority of the city's business houses
were closed throughout the day, and
the entire populace entered into the
ceremonies with a zeal which plainly
displayed that veneration was in every
heart for the nation's heroes and pre
servers. The exercises proper com
menced at 2 p. m., when the members
of the G. A. K., the W. K. C. and the
Jr. O. U. A. M. marched to Itockwood
hall and listened to an address de
livered by the Hon. E. R. Holmes, of
Lincoln, and to the rendition of a
musieal program, the numbers of
which were befitting to the occasion.
The march to the burial grounds was
taken up at 3:30 p. m., where ritual
istic services of the G. A. It. and the
W. 11. C. were held by those societies.
Following came the covering of graves
with wreaths of flowers.
The day was an ideal one and alto
gether the ceremonies were conducted
in a manner which did credit to Platts
Tbe Handicap Road Race.
Seldom has any local athletic event
occasioned as much genuine interest
as did yesterday's handicap road race.
The entries numbered over a dozen
riders, but after the handicapping

handicaps, were as follows: W. J.

the fair grounds "horn," a distance of
eight miles. Bright was Grst across
tbe line at the finish. He comes from
Pacific Junction and although a com
parative novice, he shows promise of
becoming a fast wheelman. His
actual time was 33:57. Tom Parmele
came in second, bis actual time 30
being the best ever mads on the
course. J. K. Pollock was third in
Did Great Credit To the State.
Congressman Bryan was one of the
orators at the big Arlington Decora
tion day celebration yesterday, and
Billy Annin writes from Washington
to the Lincoln Journal, in reference to
Mr. Bryan's address, as follows: "The
speech of Representative Bryan was
one of the best efforts which he has
made in Washington from any forum.
It was well considered, tasteful, and
delivered with much effect. He spoke
for nearly xlfteen minutes on patriot
ism and the duty of the people to pre
serve tbe government so that it would
be worth fighting for. Secretary Mor
ton is quoted this evening as saying
that Mr. Bryan's speech was the best
of the occasion, in good taste, fitness
and adaption to the opportunity and
that the delivery was perfect. It did
he says, great credit to the state."

A well-known railroad man recently
in talking about the recent freight rate
war said: "Tbe position of President
George Gould of the Missouri Pacific
was clearly defined in an interview he
had with one of tbe best known rail
road officials of the west, who went
on to New York to interview Mr
Gould about the Missouri Pacific's
"The man from the west saw Mr
Gould, who was very quiet in bis treat
ment of tbe rival officer. The dignified
manner of the Missouri Pacific's presi
dent considerably excited the visitor
who rather vehemently remarked that
if Mr. Gould persisted in his course uf
demoralizing freight rates it would
ruin all the railroads in the west. To
the excited speech of the freight man
Mr. Gould calmly replied that if all
the other railroads in the west passed
into the hands of receivers the Mis
souri Pacific would be the one road re
maining out of the control of the
courts and he proposed to reduce rates
until rival roads began to play fair.
This was all tne satisiaction the man
who traveled out of tbe west got from
George Gould, who, in the recent
freight tight followed absolutely in the
footsteps of his father.

The April statement of the Burling
ton showed a decided improvement
over the same month of last year.
The gross earnings were $2,495,046, a
decrease of $494,753 as compared with
pril. 1S92; the net earnings were
$840, 322, an increase of $115,930; the
surplus fund shows a gain of $40,322
against a deficit of $90,514 in 1893,
making a total gain in the surplus of
$138,830 over last year. This result is
the outcome almost entirely of a cur
tailment of expenses, as all sources of
gross earnings show a heavy falling
