Saturday night last, supposed about
1 o'clock, two unsuccessful attempts
were made to burn the Clother House.
It is a three-story, frame building, re
cently enlarged and in good part refiit
ted, and, on the night referred to, con
tained, guests and all, about seventy
five people, so that the infernal enormity
of the crime can be imagined. If the
fire had got under headway as intended
some one or more would probably have
lost their lives. As it chanced, there
was not much damage done, but no one
can look at the debris of the two at
tempts, and have a kindly feeling for
the villain who would even plan such a
deed, say nothing of its attempted ex
ecution. In a room on the second floor, a pile
of papers had been laid on the carpet;
kerosene had been poured on these and
set on fire, burning through the carpet,
and through the hay under the carpet
to the floor. A looking-glass ten feet
from the blaze was cracked from top to
bottom; beds, walls, etc were fearfully
blackened; a gale was blowing in at a
window open on the south side, and it
was almost miraculous that the house
The second attempt was made in the
cellar, under the dining hall; kerosene
had been sprinkled here, too, and some
sticks saturated with the fluid and lit,
but had not burned much. The fluid
was probably an extra good quality, had
blazed up quick and gone out as sud
denly. Nothing was known by the proprietor
of the hotel, of the attempted arson, un
til about half past eight Sunday morn
ing, when the room was entered.
Monday afternoon Geo. Jenkinson
was put under arrest, on suspicion of
having committed the deed.
As we go to press, the decision of the
Justice has not been given.
E. D. Fitzpatrick, whose heart ever
boils with true patriotism, and who is a
true friend of the children, has assumed
the task, with the assistance of his little
friends, in preparing a program for the
Fourth which is novel and interesting.
The morning program will consist of a
game of foot ball, frog race, sack race,
foot races, climbing greased pole,etc,etc :
valuable prizes by Mr. Fitzpatrick will
be given to the victor in each contest
The afternoon exercises consist of Na
tional song by little girls under the
management of Miss Helen Stockdell;
reading of the Declaration of Independ
ence by Master Burke Bowman; song by
choir of little girls; Fourth of July ora
tion by Master Willie Anderson, the ex
ercises of the day to conclude with bal
loon assensiou and fireworks.
"Fitz" is entitled to a great deal of
credit for the generous public spirit he
manifests and for his patriotic zeal.
A New Enterprise.
Thursday last the organization of the
Nebraska Real Estate Trust was com
pleted by the election of the following
officers: President, L Gluck; Vice
President John P. Becker; treasurer,
A. Anderson; secretary, H. Hockenber
ger; Board of Directors, D. T. Martyn,
J. P. Becker, J. Welch, I. Gluck, A. An
derson. The capital stock is $80,000
with power to increase to $400,000, and
we understand that fifty-two per cent
of the capital stock is paid in. The
principal place of doing business will be
in this city; the business of the Trust
will be the buying, selling and improv
ing of real estate and borrowing money
thereon, in any county in Nebraska.
There is abundant room and work for
such institutions and no doubt this one
will pay a handsome dividend to the

We are informed that our competitors
are circulating documents showing il
lustrations of what they represent as the
Steel Buckeye Binder, and that they are
endeavoring to create the impression, by
means of this device, that we are build
ing for the market a 6teel machine, and
that we are palming off upon our cus
tomers in the west our stock of Wood
Frame Binders, and withholding from
them machines of our latest pattern.
We wish to assure you that there is
not a word of truth in any such state
ment The Binder department of our factory
has been running the entire season ex
clusively on Wood Frame Binders,known
and advertised as the Light Draft Buck
eye Folding Binder.
We have no other Binders in the mar
ket Nor do wo propose to abandon an
acknowledged and triumphant success
for what is still a doubtful experiment.
This piece of dirty work on the
part of our competitors is a further
evidence to us that the "All Steel"
Binder men are not meeting with the
success in capturing the trade that they
anticipated, and recognizing the fact
that tho Buckeye Wood Frame Binder
is out-selling them on its merits, they
take this villainous method of misrepre
sentation, hoping to deceive the farmer,
and secure a portion of the trade.
Reports from the south, where harvest
is already in progress, show that the
Buckeye is starting off satisfactorily to
all, except our competitors.

America, the "empire of the setting
sun" posseses the "largest tenant farming
class now furnished by any nation," a
quarter of a million more, than in Great
Britan and Ireland. Illinois has more
tenant farmers than Scotland. The
number of "tenant farms" in Nebraska
in 1880 was 11,419-. See North American
Review for January 1886, pages 61 and
Miss Gretta Sampson graduated with
honors in the early part of the month of
June at the Denver High School. I
think that I can 6ee the mother's living
in her children. No person in Denver
had more friends than did Mrs. Samp
son in her life time, and, what is better
yet, she deserved them. The "soul
stirring" words of Doctor Moore at her
funeral are still fresh in my memory,
and I sincerely trust that they may al
ways remain so.
When I left the "Queen city," Norris
G. Bouesteel was there with his cousin
Dr. Bonesteel, looking for a job. He
said that he was likely to remain in the
city for several months. The doctor's
business is increasing all the while. It
is pretty hard to catch him in his office,
as he is "on the go" 6o much. He has
recently invested $5500 in Capitol Hill
lota, a very desirable part of the city.
Elmer Sheets is studying medicine with
the doctor. Archie is quite a boy, and
is a great help to his father.
Since my arrival here, I have seen
"Bud" Newman, the county treasurer,
and John Stauffer, the county clerk.
Mr. Newman seems to argree with me,
that the tax-payers throughout the
county need all tho light that they can
get; that it would be a good plan to
publish statements concerning the
financial condition of all the townships,
with reference to delinquent personal
and real taxes etc if he could; that he
has two hundred and six different ac
counts to keep, including the various
state, county, school districts, town
ships, city and village funds; that the
town treasurers might figure the matter
out, and he could furnish them the nec
essary data. Mr. Newman said that
parties living in Bismark and Sherman
know their standing in that regard. I
have seen no statement in print, touch
ing the subject. The light ought not to
be bidden. Whether the parties referred
to are officials of these townships, or
not, I am not advised. Treasurer New
man makes a good showing as to the
manner in which he has saved the county
compound interest, on the L. & N. W.
bonds. I was very glad to hear Mr.
Stauffer say, that he intended, some
time, to figure out the cost of criminal
proceedings to the county, during the
present year. This year's estimate for
court expenses is ten thousand dollars,
and Mr. Stauffer thinks that a good deal
of that will be used for that purpose.
It is strange that the Board of Super
visors have not before now ordered the
clerk to make such calculations, and

During the late spell of dry weather,
many farmers with long faces could be
seen leaving their wagon wheels at the
shops to have the tires set, and at the
the Burue time having doubts about the
outcome of their small grain. It was
not an unusual thing to see a farmer
going to the shop with a cottonwood
pole under his axletree in lien of the
left hind wheel which lay in the wagon,
minus a tiro; all of this of course made
business for the mechanic who wore a
smile of satisfaction. No sooner had
the recent heavy rain fallen, than the
long faces were removed and a smile
clapped upon the farmer, making both
farmer and mechanic happy.
