It is H. M. Sullivan of Broken
Bow for district judge instead ot H.
M. Mathew of Loup City.
The Sixth congressional district
will have two representatives on tiie
board of woman managers of the
Trans Mississippi exposition. The
mass meeting was held at Broken
Bow February 2f for the purpose
of electing said delegates.
Kugene Moore, the only republican
^ state olllcer that was ever well spoken
of by the populists, has been found
to be $27,000 abort in iiis aceounts.
The World-Herald says that he has
been arrested and will tie given an
opportunity to state what he has
done with the money.
There are yet a few orfices for
Governor Ilolcotnh to till by appoint
mcnt. We suggest that it might
be well for the governor to go to
Custer county for material to fill
out the balance of the list. There
is lots of territory iu Custer anil from
the amoaut of hungry olflce seekers
she produces wo apprehend that
there will be bat little difficulty in
finding enough material to finish up
the job.
The populists here are justly in
■/ iver the action of C ..rn-v
Holcomb appointing H. M. Sullivan
(a republican) of Broken Bow judge
* of the Sixteenth district. They are
not backward iu saying that Sher
man county shoald have been this
time honored, espetially when they
came forward with a candidate with
the recognized ability and Illness of
R. j Nightingale, who has been an
ardent worker for the success of the
party since its organization. Many
of the populists are quoting Sulli
vsb’s speech delivered here during
the campaign, in which he said he
'was a republican, and denounced the
-whole populist platfoirn except the
.silver plank.
In another column appear a let

against him in that paper. It seems

somewhat aroused by au article

Good Lunch Banket Mheme Used on
German Hallway*.
Germany is showing the rest of tin
world how “quick lunches” may lx
served without employing waiters am
how a hungry person may have jusl
what he wants to eat uud drink at u
fixed prico without paying an extra tip
and without feeling himself called
upon, no matter how particular he mav
be, to find fault with tho service unless
he is satisfied to make his complaint tc
u mechanical contrivance, which diffen
from some waiters in so far that it
makes no pretense of caring a rap 01
tho t urn of a handle how uncomfortable
or how badly served tho hungry oin
may lx*. Tin) contrivance, which ha
been perfected by tho Quisioana com pa
uy of Berlin is so perfectly arranged
that even those people who object ft
the manner of washing tho ••ups aw
plates in the ordinary quick lunch
places ars deprived of their cause foi

sup< rviso the cleaning of the cup which
ho will use, and if ho is so inclined niaj

Tho quick lunch stands arc provide* 1
with automatic spraying nozzles foi
cleaning glass and china und insure per
feet cleanliness. No rubber tubing it
used to conduct liquids, silv* r tubes be
ing employed for the purpose. The serv
ico is run by clockwork.
In place of the ordinary counter there
are sets of ornamental cabinets range*:
along one side of the room, which hav*
a shelf projecting at a convenient
height, upon which glasses and cups art
placed. Above these there are faueett
and a number of slots to receive the
coin. When tho customer has decided
what sort of a drink he wants—coffee,
tea, chocolate or beef tfsa—in* drops the
coin in the slot and receives the regula
tion quantity. The cold drinks—lemon
ade, soda water and all sorts of “soft
drinks”—are kept in glass vessels and
tho hot drinks in nickel tanks surround
ed by a iiot water bath, which is heated
by gas.
But tho establishment is not limited
to drinks, and the hungry man may
also be served. Sandwiches und cake*
are kept in a glass stand, circular in
shape, which is covered with a glass
be)] V itj (1 contains about a dozen
sandwiches, and the purchaser indicate*
his choice by dropping his coin into the
slot opposite the kind ho wants, and the
stand revolves sufficiently to bring hi*
sandwich to an opening where he may
take it out. Utanrls similarly arranged

The quick lunch is nothing new in
Germany, though, as any person will
know who has made a railroad trip be
tween Berlin and Copenhagen by way
of Warnomnnde. A man who made the
trip several years ago said:
“ We wero coming back from Den
mark and stopped at a little place on
the German frontier at about noon.
Everybody was hungry, and tho Ameri
can contingent was disappointed when
the conductor shouted, ‘Funf minuten
'aufeuthalt. ’ Wo knew that five minute*
would not give us time for a meal, and
we lost no time in leaving the c6ach a*
soon os it was unlocked. Everybody
rushed pellmell into tho restaurant,
whero a lot of wiro things thut looked
like old fashioned rattraps wero piled
up. Everybody grabbed a trap, paid
about 25 cents for it und rushed back tc
the train.
‘‘What looked like a trap was really
an ingeniously contrived lnuch basket
having three compartments. In one wa>
an ample portion of chicken; tho next
contained sandwiches, and tho third a
dainty piece of piistry und u small bot

iug glass wus fastened Little salt and
pepper shakers ami a knife ami fork
were fastened to the sides, and the
whole was covered with a Japanese pa
per napkin. The fact that we were all
hungry and tliat the whole arrangement
was .uoxpccted may have had some
thing to do with our enjoyment of tie
luncheon, hut it was agreed that it was
the most perfect of the ‘quick’ kind wt

The Quiz exchanges, as a rule with only t he
host class of papers--those that are ably edited
and neatly printed. Hut it has continued to
exchange with the St. Paul Phonograph partly
because it used to be edited by such capable
men as A. A Kendall and J. I- Claltln. and
partly because It is a next-door neighbor. Hut
it Is never carefully read at the Quiz oflied ami
seldom even looked at. It was by accident
only that, we saw in Its columns last week a
. long roast of the Quiz news bulletin. I be
article appeared an an editorial, but It wa* evi
dently written by that renegade profligate w ho
was tired from the Quiz office for systematic^
ally stealing money. The ridiculousness of
the whole alTair is very pointedly put In the
following paragraph taken from the rtt. I aul
Republican this week:
runny mistakes frequently criep Into print,
because of the endless hurry and rush of the
newspaper business, but everything In that
line that, the writer hai witnessed was edlpw d
by the apparently premeditated (if It has any
premeditator, which we doubt» deed of a local
contemporary last week In criticising the typo*
graphical appearance and style of one of the
acknowledged neatest papers In the state. I he
Idea of such a Journalist Ic scarecrow as the
poor old Fhonogrndh having the sublime nerve
to read the riot act to the Ord Quiz on the
subject of its variegated stylo” Is laughable
The renegade profligate who was fired from
the Quiz office for systematically stealing
money" has been given the opportunity of an
swering the above, which was taken from the
Ord Quiz of February 19, throagh thi columns
of this paper.
To W. W. Haskell. Ord. Neb.: This Is from
the fellow who went to work for you on
the i*tb day of May. 1*90. on the magnificent
•alary of *u.»o per day and trie promise of a
raise a« soon as times improved"; I am the
fellow who put in thirty long weary days in
distributing pi and dead Jobs left by yourself
and other blacksmith printers from 1*93 to
1HM; I am the one who brought back your wan
ing Job patronage and told big lies In ads
through your paper to do it ; 1 am the fellow
who Is con side rod by the citizens of Ord and
yourself as t he best printer that ever performed
in your city; I am the fellow who brought to
you the trade of the young men around the
town who gave dances and other entertain
ments and who formerly patronized tin Journal
office; lam the fellow who paid money from
my own pocket for a boy to help mo "blow out
thr fellow who trove your office it touch of high
life und got work you would never linve re
celved on your own uncord.
You are the follow who told me when I asked
if I were going to get find that you "didn't,
know,” that you had not hired my successor
permanently -just giving himn trial: you ara
till) fellow who told ir.c that you "hated" to
Are me but licit : r< wi r" other consldern
tlons (postofflces. etc.. I suptiose); you are the
fellow who admit!i i h> mi in the pn « nee of
tin devil In you oBIre and also told other
people that my sin '■< s..or Is a botch of a printer;
vou iirv th« fellow who udoiltutd t.'» u cortalii
hogbuyer In Ord that the " dy thing you hod
against me was tl l wm addicted to drink.
Yet because I ;;.c e yon a gentle rail-down
through the colni.u.s ... the St. Paul Phono
graph. ..ditch I should not bale noli'! bad you
treated mi fairly, you lnaUc tlie siui. meat that
1 was Bred for systematically stealing
money. ...
You know, a does everybody else who are at
all familiar with the i^ul/ office, that I did not
have tiie handling of the money: you were at
the ollke every morning before me und were
usually the last one Uyrc home. The only time
X"d any of your money was during your
ulisonc. and then 1 didn't take in enough to
pay the express on the weekly supply of mates
from i,he American I’res* association. And hud
I held out every cent of your money 1 got my
lingers on 1 wouldn't have enough to "set In
a "penny-ante" poker game. I recall one In
stance where, during your abseace. I sold one
dollar s worth of chattel mortgages to a man
residing In Krlcson. I placed the money In the
drawer and when the drayman came up I gave
him I# cents to pay the express on the weekly
grist of plates and some other stuff When you
returned l was telling you what had been done
and what had not and pulled out the money
box and stated that it contained kb cents, be
ing the balance of the dollar, Close examina
tion. however, revealed the fact that some of it
(1 have forgotten how much) had been swiped,
and by one whom you had accused of theft be
fore uud who admitted thut he had taken money
from you before.
When 1 wrote the article In the St. Paul
l'honograph 1 expected you would cull me down
pretty hard, but 1 thought It would he some
thing In regard to my drinking habits, to which
you are so strongly opposed. 1 may have
caused a panic In the booze market of Ord on
divers and sundry occasions. Hut that was be
cause they carried a small stock and a weak
brand of liquors. He thut as it may.
If I am guilty of "systematically stealing
money” why did you not arrest me Instead of
writing the following recommendation:
"This is to certify that L. A. ltosseter. the
bearer, lias been In my employ for a good while,
and anv printer will Win) him very near the top
as a printer either In the job or newspaper
composing rooms.”
Why did you, when you handed me the re
commendation in the Koehler hotel id Grand
Island, sav. I hope you get a good job, ltos
sc tor )'' why didn’t you charge me with theft.
Instead of corning up In a fawning inuiiuer and
saying that you would have to discharge me,
but could not help it ) why didn't you prosecute
me for the systematic stealing of money)
If 1 am thk-f whv do you recommend me to
your brother publishers) Why did you ask
Kditur Gobies of the Grand Island Independent
to give me employment
