Ex-Congressman McKeighan will speak
in Lincoln on October 23rd, and we hope
every voter will make arrangements to
hear him. He is making a eallant fight
for the People's party, giving his whole
time to the campaigu.
The issue in the 'present county cam
paign is honest government economically
The People's party goes before the
voters of the county with a ticket that
cannot but command respect and one
that is deserving of the support Of all
fair minded citizens. The administra
tions of Judge Tibbetts, Sheriff Miller
and Clerk Baker are above reproach, aud
with Polly in the treasurers office, Walt
ers as county clerk, Richardson as com
missioner, Judge Berge in the office of
the county judge, a position to which he
was honstley elected a year ago, we feel
safe in predicting that the county will
have the best and most competent offi
cials that ever filled its court house.
Do your whole duty as Populists and
citizens, and on November 5th, see that
your vote is cast and counted for the
People's Independent ticket.
Vote for Elias Baker for clerk.
Send in a club for The Wealth Mak
ers. Vote for Miller for sheriff and Berge for
county judge. Don't forget it.
For district judges, A. S. Tibbetts, J.
C. McNerny and H. F. Rose. Vote for
G. II. Walters is the best man that was
ever nominated for clerk of this county.
Vote for the best man.

it now looks like the reported gold lind

aw was at first supposed. Hundreds of
persons went out from the city to see the
new mine. -One man sold one hundred
and sixty acres of land near the mine
for $12,000 and others who have land
refuse to sell at $75.00 per acre'.
In nominating Mr. Hiram Polly for the
office of county treasurer, the party in
this county made a wise selection. Mr.
Polly isone of the best known farmers in
this part of the state. Capable, conser
vative and if elected he will make an offi
cial of which the Populists will be proud,
and one that will add dignity and
strength to the party. We predict for
him the hearty support of Lancaster
Hon. Geo. H. Walters addressed a
large and enthusiastic meeting at Pana
ma on Saturday. Over one hundred
voters were present and the cordial recep
. tion given him by the people of that
vicinity is a good indication of the
growth in popular favor that the princi
ples of our party is now experiencing.
The lesson of Cleveland's bond issue
supported as it has been by the financiers
of the Republican party is beiug learned,
and the people must look to some other
source for relief. The financial question
will not down and the voters are study
iug the legislation along these lines as
they never have done before. Every
thing indicates a substantial increase in
the state of our party in every precinct
in Lancaster county.

GENERAL MAU DEAD.
THE VIRGINIA EX-SENATOR SUC
CUMBS TO PARALYSIS,
SKETCH OF HIS CAREER.
Be Was One of the Best Known and
Bravest Officers of the Confederate
Army During the War His Sen
sational Exploits In the United
States Senate Chamber
as a Republican.
Washington, Oct. 9. General Will
iam Mahone, ex-United States senator
from Virginia, died here at 1 o'clock
this afternoon from paralysis. He
was stricken during the night of Sep
tember 29 and only partially rallied.
His case had been hopeless for some
General Mahone emerged from the
war with the halo of glory about his
name. The citizens of Petersburg, his
home, through the city council ottered
him a lot to build on. It was a recog
nition of the services of the gallant
Mahone ' brigade. He was a son
of the state and, after Lee and "Stone
wall" Jackson, her greatest .fighter
in the rebellion. The night before the
surrender at Appomattox General Lee
called Mahone into his tent.. There
the two went over the situation to
gether. They agreed that surrender
was the only thing. General M atone
did not accept the lot offered by tbe
city, but the citizens united again and
by subscription bought a house and
lot and presented it to Mrs. Mahone.
She likewise declined to accept the
gift. But the general bo ugh V on Mar
ket street and built the residence
which he had since occupied, together
with Mrs. Mahone and his two sons,
William and Butler, and his daughter,
Mahone and the exploits of the Ma
hone brigade were celebrated in prose
and song. For years the "Little Wiz
ard" was the idol of his people. But
he became a Republican. Then the
idol of Virginia and of the South was
pulled from its pedestal.
General Mahone was the son of a
fine old fashioned tavern keeper, who
lived on the Jerusalem plank road in
the black belt below Petersburg. The
boy passed through .the Virginia mili
tary institute as a free scholarship
man and began life as a civil engineer.
He built the railroad from Richmond
up to the Southern terminus of the
Pennsylvania over back of Alexandria.
In the rebellion he was known as a
hard fighter. For exceptional
bravery at the time of the explosion
of Grant's mine underneath Lee's
works, July 30, 1864, he was given the
sobriquet of the "hero of the crater."
He was commissioned a brigadier gen
eral in March, 1364, and major general
in August of the same year.
This man, who was a major general
at 30, took charge, when the war was
over, of the railroad which, he had
built some years before. It was then
little more than two streaks of iron
rust. He nade it the powerful Rich
mond and Danville. He showed the
quality of the born leader at the first
start off. He sent the agents of the
Adams Express company and of the
Baltimore and Ohio Hying from his
trains and went into the express bus
iness himself. He made money and
solid popularity all at once. But in
the big Richmond Terminal fight the
other moguls froze him out. There is
a tradition, however, that the general
was posted about the movements of
the syndicate and made handsomely.
There is another tradition that young
Butler pocketed a good $30,000 himself.
General Mahone made an unsuccess
ful attempt to secure the nomination
for governor of Virginia in 1878, es
poused the cause of the Readjuster
party and became its leader and by
devious methods the object of many
an attack, he found a seat in the
United States - senate in 1880. He
served six years in that body, being
retired by defeat at the polls. lie was
like a firebrand cast into a mass of dry
tinder, and irom tbe peculiar attitude
that he at once assumed he caused one
of the most bitter controversies and
stubborn deadlocks ever known in the
history of that body. He at last acted
witb the Republicans, and gave them
the organization of the senate. His
course brought down upon his head
the wrath of the Democrats, but
the Republicans received him with
open arms and the federal patrpnage
in Virginia was turned over to him.
Since that time he had been
the Republican leader of Virginia,
Aitnougn ne bad resided almost con
stantly in this city since he left the
senate, he retained the Republican
leadership in Virginia and in 1890 was
a candidate for governor. He was
best known here of late years by his
efforts to secure the purchase by the
government for a printing office site
of a square of ground owned by him.
The quaint figure of its owner was
always seen in tbe lobbies of both
house and senate at the close of every
session, and he was considered a
great power in the third house. Ex
ceptionally slight in stature and frame
he was a marked man in great assem
blages. His peculiar style of dress,
and especially his hat, attracted atten
tion to him. This broad briirmed, soft
felt head gear seemed out of propor
tion to the tiny form beneath it..

FUSION IN NEW YORK.
Republicans and State Democrats Agree
On a County Ticket.
New York, Oct. 0. There was con
siderable excitement before the for
mal opening of the Republican county
convention in Lyric hall last evening,
when the report was received that a
fusion ticket had been decided upon,
It was a great disappointment to the
straight ticket men. Three places had
been conceded to the State Democrats
and one to the committee of fifty and
one to the good government clubs.
There were left fourteen Piatt Repub
licans on the ticket. The -Stecklers
independent county organization and
the Jimmie O'Brien and anti-Tammany
Democrats were refused a place on the
ticket. The Republicans and State
Democrats both held county conven
tions and formally placed in nomina
tion the fusion ticket. It is expected
that the German-American Reform
union will indorse the ticket because
the excise plank of the State Democ
racy is indorsed.
SETTLERS MUST GO.
