The completion of the Burlington’s
northwestern line to a connection with
the Northern Pacific at Billings is ex
pected to result in a marked increase in
the smelting business of the Black Hills.
Ores needed for mixing with the pro
ducts of the hill mines can then be
brought in from the far west to good
advantage, and in a few years the largest
smelting center in the northwest can be
built up in the Deadwood district. The
Black Hills region has a great future
before it, and the depression of the pres
ent will soon give way to a period of
unprecedented activity.-Lincoln Journal.
The Burlington railroad has announced
two special homeseekers’ excursions
from all points on their system east of
the Missouri to all stations west of that
river. A round trip rate of one fare has
been made, with liberal stop-over privil
eges and a limit of twenty days. These
tickets may be purchased on May 8th
and 28th. They will afford a fine oppor
tunity for people in the east to pay a
visit to Nebraska. The time, it will be ,
observed, could not be better for giving
the visitors a favorable impression of
the state. Nebraskans may find it de
sirable to bring these excursions to the
attention of their friends and relatives
east of the Missouri. A round trip for
one fare, and the privilege of remaining in
the state twenty days, ought to encour
age many visits from eastern people.
Notice from the Postoffice Depart,
The following notice to postmasters has
been 'published by the order of the post
master general concerning the trans
mitting of letters and circulars by per
sons operating what is generally called
“green goods or sawdust swindle.” Cau
tion cards, suitable for display in post
office lobbies will be furnished to all
postmasters in the course of the next
few weeks, with instructions to display
them conspicuously in those portions of
the postoffice frequented by the public:
“Postoffice Department, Wash
ington, D. C., March 21, 1894.—The
attention of persons is called to the fact
that the laws prescribing penalties for
using the United States mails for the
conveyance or transmittal of letters and
circulars concerning swindling and fraud
ulent schemes is being violated by per
sons operating what is called “the green
goods or sawdust swindle.”
“These swindlers pretend to sell coun
feit money and call their goods “cigars,”
“green articles,” “green goods,” “busi
ness that is not legitimate,” etc. One
set of these swindlers, located in Jersey
City, N. J., mailed their circulars at that
point, while others were sent to be post
ed at New York, Chicago, Toledo, O.,
Detroit, Mich., and different cities. To
avoid detection, they request that replies
be sent by telegraph to fictitious ad
“A contemplated robbery, pure and
simple, and in every possible instance
plunder their object. Therefore, all per
sons who receive circulars in which are
contained offers to sell counterfeit mon
ey, green goods, cigars, etc., will know
that there is an attempt being made to
deceive and plunder them.”
“To further the ends of justice, persons
receiving such circulars through the
mails are requested to hand the same to
the postmaster, who is directed to trans
mit them forthwith to the chief post
office inspector at Washington, D. C.”
“By order of the Postmaster General.”
A Great Big Cut.
Owing to the hard times nearly every
commodity has been lessened in price.
The Nebraska State Journal, which has
forged to the front as the best paper in
the state, realizes that the public is en
titled to cheaper state papers, and there
fore reduces its prices from fio.oo to $7.50
per year, including the Sunday issue, or
$6.00 per year for six days in the week.
There will be no reduction in quality but
the increased circulation even at the
lower price will permit of larger expend
itures for telegraphic news, etc. The
Journal is for Nebraska first, last, and
all the time, and every effort is put forth
to build up state industries. Published
at the state capital it is of particular in
terest to Nebraskans. Its Washington
bureau is in charge of W. A. Annin, who
is thoroughly acquainted with Nebraska
interests at the national capital. Dur
ing the approaching campaign, and dur
ing the coming legislature, the Journal
will be pre-eminently the newspaper of
Nebraska. Try it awhile: 65 cents per
month for seven days in the week; 50
cents per month except Sunday. Address

It is a practice, unfortunately too fre
quent, for dealers to make fictitious and
fanciful prices on goods as a basis for reduc
tion and a text for advertising. Positive
Evidence confronts us in which the net re
sult of vaunted and much advertised bar
gains is simply a scale of prices the same as
ourselves and other dealers charge regular.
The remedy for this humbug is with
the retail business.
