Our legislature has failed to do
many things which the people wanted
it to do ami it has done the very
i hing which the people did not want
it to tin, to wit: It has increased the
levy for state tax purposes not less
than five mills. In one word it has
increased taxation, when there was
not the slightest need for it. This is
rathet a strange proceeding, to say the
least, and one lor which the members
of the legislature should be made to

to their own detriment are as good as

this respect and change them at once,

LAI LSI SNOW STOK3IS.
Trains Stopped. &e.
I'liK AfiO, March 20. 2 . m. Af
fairs in the streets have gone from bad
to worse on account of tho stoini, but
at present the snow, which has been fall
ing rapidly since 3 :30 a. m. yesterday,
is beginning to come less lieavily and
will probably stop falling entirely
soon. The result of to-day's storm is
from six to eight inches of exceeding
ly compact snow, which is so solid
that pedestrians can walk on top of it
without perceptibly reducing its
height. The thermometer has been
very near, I ut a trifle above the freez
ihg point all day, and is now slowly
rising. Morning trains arrived very
closely on time, but to-night there are
serious delays on all lines. All freight
trains are abandoned. The North
western road sent out only one train
to Milwaukee, and no others, except
suburbans. The C, B. & Q. ttains are
blocked. The Alton train arrived one
hour late. The Illinois Central trains
are slow bnt running with some regu
larity. The Michigan Central is far
behind and sent out only one train to
night. The Michigan Southern trains
were delayed by a bad wreck fifty
miles from this city, and incoming
trains were six hours late. The Pitts
burgh & Ft. Wayne road justified its
reputation by sending all its trains
out on time. Roads not particularly
mentioned in the above report have
either abandoned all trains or only
suburbans. Wires are prostrated in
nearly every direction, and it is impos
sible to learn the fate of the trains
which have gone out, and many may
be blockaded only a few miles from
the city. There has been almost a
complete stoppage in travel and traffic,
and not a street car is running in the
city. The snow is piled up between
car tracks and sidewalks so high and
firmly that it is impossible to crowd it
back from the tracks. It is a problem
of vital interest to citizens how long
the presunt state of affairs is to last.
Nothing but heavy rain or very warm
weather will afford speedy relief from
the embargo, and there would be a
flood if either of those came about.

tracks which converged' at a point op
posit the depot. Through the caie
lessness of the engineers they rubbed
up against each other rather too fa

To Point a Moral.
We call the attention of our boys
particularly to the following facts
concerning the personal habits of two
men prominent before the American
public at the present time, on account
of their immense wealth and enormous
stock speculations; Wru. II Vander
bilt and Jay Gould.
If these men cannot afford to waste
their capital the capital of a clear
brain, steady nerves, and vigorous
health, and consider lhat only by total
abstinence can these be preserved in
full activity, is there not a lesson for
you in their example in this respect,
if you wish to succeed in whatever is
to be your life work?
"William II. Vanderbilt's personal
habits are such as do boner to Ameri
can manhood. It is said that the hab
it of smoking was strong upon him in
his younger days, and his breaking it
was an illustration of his boundless
deference to his father's feelings and
wishes. One day in 1833, as the fami
ly were on their way to St. Peters
burg, on board the strata yacht North
ern Star, the father and son were
walking on the deck, the latter puffing
an after dinner cigar.
"I wish you would break up that
smoking habit of yours. 1'il give you
10,000 if you will do it," said the
"You need not give me any money;
your wish is sufficient," answered the
son, throwing the cigar overboard.
He has never smoked since.
His command over himself is some
thing remarkable. He used to be a
real whist player, like his father, and
when he .:ad removed to New
or four evenings
a week at the
I'nion 'lub. But he noticed that
tobacco smoke ani midnight hours
i interfered with the clearness of his
head the next morning, and he gave
up both whist and club. The samo
thing happened with wine. He likes
a glass of champagne, but having dis
covered that it affected his head the
next day, he never touches wine or
spirits of .my kind now, even at public
banquets or dinner parties at his own
house, Every day in the year he is in
bed by 11 P. m . and at work by 8 A. M
And now in his sixtieth year, his
complexion is fresh with the glow of
health and strength, and his eyes have
the luster that comes from regular
habits, and abstinence from drinking
Jay Gould is a regular "blue ribbon
boy" "never swears nor uses strong
language of any kind, nor does he
drink, smoke, or play cards.'
Drinking produces poverty, domestic
misery, insolvency, bankruptcy, de
struction of property, loss of reason,
disease, and premature death.
They call it strong-drink when
speaking of it, and never was anything
more rightly named. For as surely as
it gets hold of one, it pulls him down
ward into depths of degradation, as
nothing else has power to do.
DitfXKKSSEss is a besetting sin,
and leads to idleness, quarrelling,
swear.ng, lighting, stealing, adultery,
murder, and almost every other sin,
and finally to f.teen'al miskuy.
Charley Holmes is just more than
fixing up that "Ross Hotel" of his'n,
on Sixth and Vine sts. He's put a
pizarro on one side, a portorieo on the
other and there is to be a lemonade
all round it. Whether it is to be fin
ished olT with a cupola, a moitgage, or
at mechanic's lien on top we tlo not
know. Any one of 'em would set the
thing otf in good style.
A portion of the democrats want
to run a straight ticket and would
probably nominate Capt. O'rtourke.
Many citizens would like to make a
good business ticket irrespective of
party, in fact we understand ther is
movement on foot looking towards
that kind of a tieket. We have heard
of no Republican candidates as yet.

A Chapter of Accidents.
Last Saturday morning about 2 a.
m. as the early freight train was pull
ing into the yard, it would seem that
Thos. L. Barnhard the engineer slip
ped from his engine somehow, and
was run over and instantly kilLd by
his own train. An engine stood on
the switch with" headlight burning
brightly as Barnhard's train came
round the curve; both he and the fire
man seem to have thought at first that
this engine was on the main track,
and both stepped to the side of th
engine to look out. The fireman heaid
no word, nor did he know Barnhard
had left the engine till the thud of the
cars passing over his body called at
tention to the fact of something wrong.
The supposition can only be, that he
stepped down or was leaning out down
low to see s where the witch engine
really was when he somehow slipped
or lost his hold and was thrown under
His body was at once removed to
town, an inquest held which threw
no further light on the subject, and no
one will ever know just how poor
Tom Barnhard lost his life. He had a
wife and child at Lincoln where the
body was taken next day, and the
funeral held. The final interment
however being in Indiana, among his
folks, we understand. lie was one 'of
the most reliable engineers on the
road ami stands high with t lie com
pany and all his comrades.
A STOCKMAN FALLS OKI" THE BUIDOE
On the same morning a number of
stock cars passed through from Burt
county, on one of which was Henry
Stoik. a drover, residing near Tekama
in Burt Co.
While crossing the bridge one of his
steers got d.nvn and he attempted to
prod him up while the cars were in
motion, either walking by the side of
cars or hanging by the ladder with one
liand. At all events he lost his hold
somehow and ' as precipitated to the
frozen ground and ice beneath, a dis
tance of 32 feet by measurement.
Both legs were broken, or rather

tit once removed to the Pacific House
this place, where he now lies, and
there is a bare hope of his entire
recovery. Mr. S. C. Smith one of the
men going through with three cars of
his own cattle, stopped over Sunday
with Mr. Stoik, and Sunday morning
his wife and a Mr. Lilly from Tekama
came down. Mr. Stork is here now
and everything that c in be done for
the unfortunate man is being done.
Drs. Livingston, Richmond and Hall
