London, July 13, 1SS9.
In the great railroad fever which is
now pervading our country, it is pleas
ant to note, no point attracts so much
attention as ours the grainry of the
world the great west Capital, see
ing a rapidly developing empire, pro
gressing with a rapidity unparrallel
ed drifts hithertfafds to aid itsdevel
opement and enjoy Its great advanta
ges. Nebraska situated as she Is, at
the very threshhold of egress and in
gress to the traffic between the oceans
ii receiving her full tJiare of atten
tion by railroad capitalists, to reach
her rich trade by the way, and tap the
richer harvests beyond. Roads aiming
at this have undoubtedly the best sup-
i)ort, for in them are our eastern
friends most directlv interested. Of
such roads three are now, either in
progress or projected in and over this
State : One from Plattsmouth to tap
the Union Pacific east of Ft. Kearney,
one from Nebraska City to conrtct
with the first named at Lincoln, and
the one fiom Brownville now being
surveyed went from this point to tap
the U. P. at or near Ft. Kearney.
Many other and minor roads arc pro
jected, with fair hopes of construc
tion ; yet, so long as the tide of emigra
tion, etc., shall pass from east to west,
so long will thoroughfares running in
these directions have the advantage
over others. In this strife for trade
between the oceans competition will
naturally seek the shortest routes, and
in this lies our strength as a city, for
but a glance at the map of the country,
from this point east thrbu'gh Missburi,
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey to New York City, and
noting the cities benefited by such a
line, because of its shortnes over all
others, cannot fail to convince the
most indifferent observer of our ad
vantageous location. First and fore
most among our eastern friemhfin this
enterprise stands the city of Quiticy
the Queen city of the West, and des
tined at no distant day to be the great
trade centre of the Mississippi Valley
in Illinois. She will aid to. the full
extent of her ability ; yet, aisanterpri-
ses of such magnitude are not accom
plished save by a united, effort on the
part of all interested, so the friends of
this project must work along the line
from Quincy to Ft. Kearney. Beyond
the Missouri river the people are in
the greatest earnest to aid the work,
and to those west we would say : Your
destiny Is also in the scale, and car
nest, Intelligent, persistent effort is
required to work it out favorable to
yourselves ; for in the strife for prece
dence on the river, alluring schemes
will be and are offered you to breed de
lay till your distraction with that of
your river friends can be accomplish
ed. You niay be offered other road3
for nothing, by parties who of them
selves cannot build them, and over
routes where you know the way trade
will not be sufficient inducement to
eastern capital to invest; while the
route that eastern capital will labor for
will surely coal you something. To
Johnson and Gsge counties we may
safely say: your interest is identical
with ours, and we do not say go, but
come with us in this enterprise heart
and hand, and our joint prosperity is
secured. To be a point upon such a
road secures beyond prcadventure
prosperity and wealth, while the op
posite will result from lossofit thro'
present neglect. ' Again; we say, be
not tempted by the outside promises of
"side shows," but cleave with us to
the grand work, and success is as

A Talk With Old Ben Wade
tie Is in Favor or Chinese
A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial has been interviewing
with ex-Senator Wade since his return
from California, with the following re
sult: "Mr. "Wade what are your impress
ions regarding the Chinese."
"I think the more we have of them
the better. All accounts of those who
have employed them concur in con
ceeding to them habits of honesty,
industry, and temperance."
Why, then, do the laws of the
Pacific States discriminate against
'It is the old story of political
opposition, of precisely the same
character as that which on this side
has opposed the 'nigger.' The Demo
cratic politicians have passed laws in
California discriminating against
these people to please the Irish, who,
with other unskillful lalorers, fear
the competition of those Chinese."
"Are not their habits repulsive to
our people?" .
"On the contrary they are extreme
ly neat, preforming their frequent
abolutions With great care. They are
docile, honest, and never, known to
get i n toxicated. A n old friend of ou rs
with his wife, who have long been
residents of California, came with us
on the return trip. They left their
house hold and children in the care of
two Chinese servants who have been
with them ten years, and felt intire
confidence in them. They assured us
that in the employment of this people
was to be found- tlxj solution of the
vexed question about domestic help."
"Rut do you believe it would be ad
visable to admit them to citizenship i n
"I don't know that they desire to
become citizens. .They ask to be pro
tected equally with the others by the
laws, and to be permitted to testify in
courts of justice. Rut if the they are
as represented honest, temperate.and
industrious why should we refuse to
admit them to citizenship ?"
"They are reared in monarchical

Chicago, July 30. The following
are the particulars of the bloody riot
which qccurred on board the Dubuque,
on the Mississippi river.
One hundred .and fifty raftsmen
came on board the boat at Davenport,
and the clerk ordered two of the deck
hands to stand guard at the gangway
not let any one pass without his per
mission. One of the raftsmen tried to
pass this guard and make his way into
the cabin, when the deck hands order
ed him back until his ticket was" ex
amined by the clerk. "
He, not liking this commenced
pitching into the deck hands who got
the best of him, when the raftsmen,
to the numler of over one hundred,
came to his rescue, stabbing and beat
ing the two deck hands until they
were about dead, and then throwing
them into the river. They then
made an assault on the rest of the crew,
and succeeded in killing three more
of them throwing their bodies Into
the river. One of the raftsmen was
also killed in the melee, making six in
all killed. -
As soon as Hampton Missouri was
reached Captain Rhodes landed the
boat, when the raftsmen drove the
deck crew ashore, injuring several of
them with stones. . ..
As soon as this was over they went
aboard the boat and ordered the
Captain to proceed up the river or
they would burn his boat.
lie being in their power, and fear
ing they would carry their threat into
execution, headed the boat tip stream,
and in the meantime telegraphed to
the heriffof Rock Island who char
tered an extra train and left with a
larsre force of men well armed.
They overtook the boat at Clinton
and immediately. took possession of
her and started for Rock Island.
. On his arrival at Rock Island, there
were over 5000 on the river bank to
gether with the crew who had been
driven from the boat, and with their
assistance they succeeded in recogniz
ing forty-two of the men who were
taken to jail under a strong guard.
A large police force is posted about
the jail and no' further trouble is ex
pected. Rock Island is full of rafts
men who came ashore but an extra
force of police Is stationed about the
city, and it is thought that all will be
quiet foe the night.

Interesting from Havana.
Havana, July 31. On Wednesday
last 5,000 negro insurgents attacked
Puerto Principe, making a General
raid through the city. Spanisa f robp
to the number of 4,000 men attacked
them. . A severe struggle ensued hi
which the ground was contested inch
by inch, the insurgents retiring in
perfect order, having achieved the ob
ject for which they made the raid.
They captured and destroyed provis
ions valued at $50,000, and made good
their retreat. The Spaniards. don't
give any estimate of the patriot loss.
Thirty-foUr of their army were taken
to the barracks of the volunteers.
There is great dearth of provisions,
and consequently great misery. At
Santiago Drueda, July 24, the patriot
detachments, which have been attack
ing the fortified plantations for some
time past, defeated the Spanish rein
forcements sent to meet them; Col.
Comara, commanding the Spanish
forces, was surrounded. The expedi

The New Fractional Currency.
The Treasury Department 1ms com
menced the issue of the new fractional
currency. The printing is done in
New York the face by the American
Bank Note Company, and the back
by the National Bank Note Company,
ou the same paper used for priutiug
the United States and National Bank
Notes. This paper is superior in qual
ity to ihat used for currency now in
use. Instead of flashy bronzing now
heretofore used on the face of the
fractional currency, which was easily
counterfeited, an engravedscal, prin
ted in red, has been substituted.
This is thefinishing touch to the notes
and is done at the printing division of
the Treasury Department, under the
management of it3 efficient chief,
George B. McCartee. The ten'cent
note, instead of being ornamented oh
the face, as now, by the head of Wash
ington, has the bust of a womnnr6up
posed to be the Goddess of laberty.
The fifteen-cent notes will have-on
their face the figure on the dome of
the Capitol. Fesscudcn's head will
be taken off" the twenty-five-cent
notes, and that of Washington substi
tuted. General Spinner's handsome
bust will be taken ofF the fifty-cent

A Story for Moderate Drinkers.
An old friend of the late Judge
Fletcher, of Boston, related to the
writer many years aso, the following
characteristic anecdote: Mr. Fletcher,
when a young man; boarded in the
old Exchange coffee house. Without
much consideration he had fallen in
with the drinking fashion of the day,
so far as to have a class of spirits and
water brought to his room every night
to no taken on going to bed, as "a
nightcap." One night an unusual
press of company prevented the bar
keeper from carrying up Mr. Fletch
er's usual night dram. The squire
did not regard it as quite the thing for
him to go to the bar and get his grog,
and so he went to bed without his
nlcht cap. But to sleep he could not.
All night long he tumbled about for
lack of his accustomed drink, and as
he did so his active and discriminating
mind worked most dilligently. The
fruit of his reflection appeared next
morning, when, on getting up weary
and worn by his hard and restless
night, Fletcher went directly to the
bar keeper: "Mr. ,you did not
bring up my brandy and water last
night and, as a consequence, I have
6lept little or none all night.
The bar keeper was very sorry.
This neglect should not occur acain.
"Not so," rejoined Mr. Fletcher.
"Never bring me another drop. of
liquor, unless I order it, If it has
come to this that I can't sleep without
a tumbler of toddy, it is high time
that I stopped drinking, and broke up
the dangerous habit." - 1
From that day Mr. Fleteher became
a thorough-going Temperance man.
Sayixo "Hateful" Things'
What a strange disposition is that
which leads people on to say 'hateful"
tilings for the mere pleasure "of saying
them. You are never safe with such
a person. Wlien you have done your
very best to please them, and are feel
ing kindly and pleasantly out will pop
some bitter speech, some underhanded
stab, which you alone can comprehend
a sneer which is masked, but which
is too well aimed to be misunderstood.
It may be at vour person, your mental
feeling, your'foolishjhabits of thought,
or some little secret of faith, or opin
ion confessed. In a , moment
of ganuine confidence. It matters not
how sacred it may be to you, he will
have his flinng at it, nay, since the
wish is to make you suffer, he is all
the happier the nearer he touehes your
heart. Just half a dozen words, only
for the pleasure of seeing a cheek flush
an eye lose its brightness, only.spoken
because he is afraid you are too nappy
or too conceited. Yet they are worse
than so many blows. How many
sleepless nights have -such attacks
caused. How, after, them. one awak
ens with aching eyes and. head, to rer
member that ppeeeh before anything
el3e that brigh t sharp needle of speech
that probe the very centerof your soul.
There is only one comfort tole taken.
The repetition of such attacks, soon
weans your heart from the attacker,
and this once done, . ifothing that he
can say will ever pain you more.

It only needs to be stated that the

and were returning from a shopping

that they went to the husband's heart.
"But Belle, what's the matter?"
"I can't tell Oh ! I can't tell, but

And now the car had reached the

began to leave the vehicle.

vou the benefit of my experience in the use of Coe's
Cough Balsam. From taking a heavy, cold, I was
taken down with the con?ettion of the lnhijs, and
continued to fail, under the bvst. care until I. was
given tip by the most competant medical authority,
to die. There seemed nothing trat strangulation and
death before me. I was told that further medical at
tendance and medicine was useless, and I was re
signed to death, when a friend, who had been greatly
benefitted by using the Balsom.bronghtmea bottle.
TbiH was after I had done with the dtx-tor and medi

stopped, and my luns healed, and got well. I used
ten bottles. I remain, gents, with great respect,
