Senator Allt'ii t-peaks at O'Neil
One and one-third fare is the rate on
all railroads to the populist state con
vention on the 28th.
The remains of Mrs. (J. It. Wolfe and
child, who were killed in the Denver
Jiotel horror, arrived here today and the
funeral occurs Friday at 2 p. m.
The letter carriers are arranging for a
picnic Labor Day at Lincoln park. As
the boys are a household necessity in
nearly every home, all will join in wish
ing them a happy time on this occasion.
Seventh warders are a little warm at
the mayor for his treatment of Council
man Myers. They are ready to stand
by their councilman for his work in the
interest of his ward.
Officer Kinney who was on a "toot"
not lone since is reported to have re
marked that the city administration
could not get along without his services
and it seems he called the turn since he
is 6till on the, force.
I'rof. (J. II. Walters, people's indepen
dent candidate for county clerk will
speak before the "Farmers' Economic
Club" of Mill precinct, on Saturday
evening August 24ih, at the Hock Creek
school house. Subject, "Money."
The "knights of Ak-sar-ben," which if
spelled backward will show who is
meant, promise to have a grand time at
Omaha during State Fair week. From
the class of buildings already completed
and the interest awakened Nebraska
will have the greatest fair in the history
of the state this year.
At a meeting of the populist county
central committee Saturday J. M.
Thompson was elected secretary.
J. C. McXerney and II. F. Rose were
placed upon the ticket as candidates
for district judges along with A. S.
The defaulting city clerk of Beatrice,
J. T. Phillips, has been captured and
now awaits trial in the Gage county
jail. Bogus warrants are showing up
in various quarters and several books
have been mutilated beyond all use. It
is likely he will get a good term at the
Ilayden Bros., the wide awake mer
chants of Omaha seem to have incurred
the everlasting displeasure of the poor
old Journal since they do not advertise
with that concern. The Journal is
jacking up that wide awake firm be--'
cause they are able to supply the public
with anything they desire in their line,
from a toothpick to a railroad train.
Alexander Buckner, a prominent
colored man, held on charge of bigamy
for some time, has been released by one
of the judges of the district court on
the ground that he had been tried once
on the alleged crime and acquitted. It's
getting close on to a campaign and the
colored vote must be looked after. Now
if the Rock Island would cause the re
lease of another colored man the coun
try would doubtless be saved.
llulda and Bertha Eck, mother and
daughter, were convicted pn the charge
of vagrancy Saturday afternopi. and
something over .3S each was taxed up
against them. Being unable to pay,
they were sent to the county jail to
board it out. Tha taxpayers are get
ting a liberal dose of this liberal republi
can administration. But they will re
pudiate it at the polls this fall.
The appraisers report on the Dorgan
contract proves interesting reading.
For instance: One second hand, worn
out 12-inch stiring plow 12; one two

is interesting reading matter.
Fire at midnight last night destroyed
two barns and a corn crib on the big
farm of Dr. W. II. II. Dunn, a half
mile belyond Ilavelock. Seven horses,
harness, valuable machinery and con
siderable grain were also burned. . Dr.
Dunn places his loss at upwards oi
97,000. The property was insured for
about one-fifth of its value. It is sai.J i
