Mrs. Gilman was as near to bo

over gets. B. F. had chopped
her enough wood to last during
his absonco, but during tho night
somo enterprising neighbor, who
doubtless boloivos in a moro equal
division of property botween tho
rich and tho poor, appropriated
tho lion's share of tho pile.
Mrs. Gilman says sho wouldn't

but tho idea that somo other

Representative McMillan, of Ten
ncsseo, is enthusiastic over the dem
ocratic outlook, in his state as well
as in tho country at large. He says:
"The people of Tennessee aro in the
best of good humor over the magnifi
cent crop and the improved condition
of business. Our iron furnaces are in
active operation, and that Is about
the best evidence of business revival.
I feel confident that a new era of in
dustrial prosperity is about to set In,
and twelve months from wv we will
have forgotten all about tho great
panic. In fact, it will be surprising
if 1890 doesn't turn out to be a regu
lar boom year. Tho good times will
be a powerful ally of tho democratic
party in next year's struggle. With
the nation enjoying a high degree of
prosperity It will be dlfllcult to rob
the party In power of the credit. The
democrats will go Into tho campaign
with the confidence born of popular
approval, while the republicans will
have lost the effective cry of hard

tion tax upon all travel ing-theatrical

and performances exhibiting
horo for tho purpose of taking
monoy away from the town. The
City may just as well mako two
or three hundred dollars in a
year in this way as to havo tho
monoy taken out of town. Un
less our merchants aro protected
in somo way, they must necessar
ily charge moro for their goods
in order to meet expenses, which
causes dissatisfaction among tho
people, resulting in a genoral de
moralization of business.
Attorney R. C. Noleman loft
for Omaha Sunday night as At
torney for tho Dawson family in
tho hearing ordered by Governor
Holcomb beginning on Monday.
Last year while this family wore
traveling ovorland enrouto for
Tacoma, Wash., thoy camped for
a night on tho road a short dis
tance from South Omaha. While
thus encamped thoy wero sot up
on by tho Vic McCarthy gang,
a band of notorious toughs, and
robbed and beaten in a shameful
manner. Tho authorities in
those parts either through fear
of tho gang or being in cahoots
with them, quioted the matter
and hustled tho family on to Al
liance, whoro thoy havo since
been located part of the time in
a destitute condition. Tho mat
ter being laid boforo tho British
government of which govern
ment tho Dawsons aro subjects,
an investigation has been order
ed, when, if tho statements of
tho Dawsons can bo proven, a
demand will be made by the
British govornmont for repara
tion. Mr. Noleman has an on
viable roputation in this state as
a persistent fighter in logal mat
ters, and if thero is any show at
all of sustaining his clients ho is
tho man that can do it. Further
