Among the visitors attending the sea-

Omaha last week, was John Anderson,
who recently spent a terrible week in
the bottom of a well at Johnstown, in
tl itate. He looks hale and hearty
r agh not entirely recovered from the
ef ects of the siege he went through.
He says he can convey no idea of hit
sensations when the well caved on him,
though his hones soon revived, and with
his knowledge of the nature of the soil
be realized that it was merely a ques
tion of how long he could hold out. His
greatest fright came when they began
pulling on the ropes, and thus threaten

' A shooting affair, which will likely re
sult in the death of one of the partici

week. John Hall, who lives with his
wife and children in a dilapidated and
abandoned house in the southern part of
tho city, went borne in his usual state of
intoxication and commenced to abuse
his wife and threatened to murder the
entire family, when his wife drew a re-'

nearly through. Mrs. Hall wag not ar
rested, but a guard was placed over her
to await the result of the wounds.

Mr J. Harpman, says a Minneapolis
dispatch, who lias returned from a visit
to llamsey county, Dakota, says of the
Polish-Jew sufferers there: The settle
ment is located about eighteen miles
from Devil's Land' and comprises sev
enty families, numbering 25 , souls.
They came here two years ago last
spring from Chicago, St. Paul nnd other
places, with some household truck and
from $1,00 to $2,500 in money, farming
implements, etc. They procured land,
bnill their modest houses and went to
work with a will to clear the land and
become independent farmers. Those
without money mortgaged their laud
and borrowed enough to pay the govern
ment price, about $230, and expected to
live on the balance of their loans until
tho first crop could be harvested. They
raised a fair crop the first year, nnd the
prospects were so bright that they mort
gaged their lands and other property to
purchase stock and farm machinery.
The second year they planted a
much larger acreage. The notes
and mortgages signed by them
in many instances bore interest at a
rate of 2 per cent per month on chattels
and 12 per cent on real estate, besides
!5 per cent on tiie loans which they were
to pay the loan sharks who loaned them
the money and charged the extravagant
interest. About the middle of August
all their expectations were ruined ii
one night. A severe frost came nnd ru
ined their entire crop of wheat, leaving
them oniy about as many potatoes ns
they used for planting, and barely
enough oats to winter their stock.
Trouble and suffering began jt once.
Merchants who heretofore had been
anxious to supply all their wants re
fused to cred't them any more. Seeing
that they could not expect payment for
what had been furnished already, nearly
every creditor became alarmed and fore
closed at once. The situation became
so bad that the sheriff refused to inflict
further suffering on the people by
taking their property. He found tho
people without fuel or bread, they using
the droppings of cattle for find to cook
such few articles as they could get, hyi
set bread, if they could get any, to bake
in this fire. Their children were naked,
without shoes or stockings, men and
women in rags and without footwear.
We found everything as the sheriff
stated. To the tearful appeals of these
people w-e said that we should not let
them starve nor freeze, and they took
fresh hopes, showering many blessings
upon us. For the present, their most
pressing needs are bread and fuel,
and these articles must bo
had at once, for every day is a dav of
suffering and privation. We visited
twenty houses, and found all. with two
exceptions, without a stick of wood or
any other material for fire. On Satur
day ice was three-fourths of an inch
thick, and we found numerous little
children with bare feet and legs. The

from his scanty supply. Another wo

A Big Suit Threatened.
Chicago dispatch: A local paier says:
"The omens portend that in the course
of a very few days there will be big liti
gations set afloat between the United
States Ex press company and the Milwau
kee &, St. Paul Railway company. Some
time ago the road declared its intention
of transferring the business of its entire
system from the United States Express
company to the Adams Express com
pany. This has been done, and the
Aduins express will proceed to handle
its newly acquired territory on the 15th
of the coming mouth, but it seems there
is, or will bp, one year of the contract
possessed by the United States express
unexpired when the new incumbents be
gin their duties, and the fact that the
railway company ignores this unexpired
term is the base of the action at law
that now threatens."

InJianaixdis put on a holiday appear

whom were Charles H. Litchman, ex

General Harrison mod s brief ("i-eeon,
1 have seen during this busy summer
many earnest and demonstrative assem
blages of my fellow citizens I have
listened to many addresses full of the
kindest expressions toward me, person
ally, but among them all none havo been
more grateful to me, none have more
deeply touched me than this treat as
Kembiage of workingmon of Indiana and
these kind words winch have been ad
dressed to me in your behalf, i Great
cheering. There are reasons by this
should bo' mi. that will readily occur to
voiir minds, and to nie of which Mr.
McDani -Is has alluded. Early in this
campaign ri.-rtaiu people, claiming to
speak for laboring men, but rt illy in
the employ of the democratic cam
paign managers, promulgated through
the iieivspnp, rs, and by campaign pub
lications that were not given i!K-n en
dorsement of the democratic campaign
managers, but were paid for bv their
fiiuds, and circulated under their aus
pices, a number tit false and scandalous
stories relating to my attitude toward
organized labor. The purpose of all
these stories wiis to poison the minds of
working men against the candidate of
the parly that stands in this campaign
for the prineiplo of protection to Ameri
can labor. I have only once in all the
addresses I have made to my fellow cit
izens, alluded to these matters and scan
dalous Htorii-s. But now, in the pres
ence of this great gathering of working
men, I do pronounce them t be utterly
false. (Tumultuous cheering, waving
of flags aud banners, continued for sev
eral minutes. The story that I ever
said 1 a day was enough for a working
man, with all its accompaniments and
appendages, is not a perversion of any
thing I evei said. It is a false creation.
Enthusiastic cheering. ) I will not fol
low in detail this long catalogue of cam
paign slanders, but will only add that it
is equally false that anywhere, or at any
time, 1 ever spokn disparagingly of my
fellow citizen of Irish nativity or de
scent. Many of them arc now enrolling
tlie.imelves on the side of the protection
of American labor. This created tho
necessity of the story, i Cheers. I
want to say again that those who pitch
the campaign upon so Iowa level greatly
under estimate tho intelligence, sense
of decency and hue of fair play of tho
American people. I Prolonged cheer
ing. 1 said to one of the first delega
tions that visited me that this was
a contest of great principles; that
it would be fought out upon the high
planes of truth, and not in the swamps
of slander and defarmation. Those who
will encamp their army in the swamp
will abandon victory to the army that is
on the heights. Tiie republican party
stands to-ilay a bulwark, of defense of
the wage-earners of this country against
the competition which may reduce
American wages even below the standard
they falsely impute to my suggestion."
There are two very plaiu facts that I
have often stated, and others more forci
bly than I, that seems to me Bhould be
conclusive with the wage-earners of
America. The policy of the democratic
party the revision of our tariff laws, as
indicated by tho democratic party, a
revenue only tariff, or progressive free
trade-means a vast and sudden increase
of importations. Is there a man here so
dull as not to know that this means
diminished work in our American shops?
If some say that labor is not fully em
ployed now, do yon hojie it will be more
fully employed when you have transfer
red one-third of tho work done in our
shops to foreign work shops? If some
one tolls me that labor is not sufficiently
rewarded here, does he hope to have its
rewards increased by striking down our
protective duties and compelling our
workmen to compete with the underpaid
labor of Europe? Cheers. 1 conclude
by Baying that lesss work and lower
wages are an inevitable result of the
triumph of tho principles advocated by
the democratic party.
- And now, you will excuse further
speech from me. There are here several
distinguished advocates of republican
principles, you will be permitted to hear
