THE PASSING SHOW
POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE
OF THE DAY.
THIRD PARTY CLAIMS.
AN ADDRESS PROM THE EXECU
Emboldened by Their Capture ot the
Farinern' Alliance at IndlnnapollH They
Claim That All Labor Will Unite in a
Concentrated Political Movement.
The National Execulivo committee ls
sued an address to the people of the coun
try from Indianapolis which says that the
People's party will have a candidate for
President In the field for 1892; that no lu
lluenco of the old political organizations or
aggregated capital can prevent a hearty
and unanimous coming together of all
labor forces of the country, whether em
ployed in the workshop, mine or farm.
"The people have beheld," it says, "with
growing alarm continual advance of con
ditions carrying the country every day fur
ther away from the principles and tradi
tions of the founders of the Republic and
nearer the abyss in which can be seen only
a crushing oligarchy or the dreadful alter
native of eevflulion and anarchy. It Is for
the purpose of saving free institutions by
the peaceful instrumentalities of educa
llon and the ballot that the People's party
liaa been organized." The aidress devotes
omc space to the scoring of railroad cor
toratlons, corrupt legislatures, debauched
juries and judges, and banking associa
tions which make or wreck as their interests
dictate, and says th dally newspaper
press has become coerced by its business
necessities into becoming the ready instru
ment to bind the shackcls of serfdom on
the limbs of free people, to confuse their
minds by sophistry, fill their cars with
falsehood, uphold everything destructive
to the public good and crush everything
that would help the people. "As a striking
Instance of the colossal lies with which the
Jieoplo arc misled," says the address, "we
point to the vote of tho People's
party tills year in Kansas. Ninc
teuths of the population of this country,
iu consequence of the gross misrepresenta
tion of the press, believe that tho People's
party vote in Kansas this year fell off
greatly from that of last, while the fact is
that it actually increased about 11 per
cent. The Republican majority in South
Dakota was reduced from 10,000 in 1890 to
2,700 tills year, w hile in Nebraska the Peo
ple's party came within 8,000 votes of de
feating the combined power of both the old
parties and elected eleven District Judges."
THE FREE SILVER DEMAND.
The Denver Mining CongresN IleclareH in
Favor of Plenty of Alone)-.
The committee on resolutions appointed
by the Mining Congress at Denver reported
declaring that the certificates of the gov
ernment backed dollar for dollar by gold or
silver coin on deposit in the Treasury of the
United States is a safe and bound currency
and has been approved by the people; that
tho first National Mining Congress Is unal
terably In favor of the principle of bl-mct-alism;
that gold and sliver not one to the
exclusion of the other arc the money met
als of tho constitution; that gold and silver
should have by law equal rights, uses and
monetary purposes, and to that end it dc
tuanded of the Cougic-s of the United
Btatos the enactment of laws by which sil
ver shall be coined free in all mints equally
with gold ami to have with it a full and un
restrained monetary power, and that they
he in the ratio of 1C to 1. and when the
coinage is represented by treasury notes
each dollar shall represent 412 grains of
standard sliver or 25.6 grains of gold.
Washington State Alliance Men.
The Farmers Alliance convention of the
State of 'Washington adjourned after a
stormy session. A motion made to select
three delegates to the State third party

President Sutton. On appeal the Presi
dent was overruled and the motion pre
vailed. President Sutton declares that he
will cxposo the Alliance for its political

The Lottery Advertising Law.
Argument has been made in the Supremo
Court at Washington in the anti-lottery
cases, in which tho unconstitutionality of
"the recent anti-lottery law is involved. The
suits arc those brought against Publishers
Kapler, of the Mobile Rtuister, and Duprcc,
of tho New Orleans Stales.
Russia Expects to Fight.
Tho Novostl of St. Petersburg declares
that tho financial crisis in Iiurlin has de
veloped a political crisis; that the war
party has gained the upper hand and the
prudent Bismarcklan policy has been for
gotten in the frantic desire to strike Russia
in a moment of weakness.
Large Amount of Smuggling.
Supervisor Longle of the Treasury De
partment, in ids annual report says the
Canadian and Mexican borders arc so large
that the small force of customs collectors
is unable to protect it and thousands of
Chinamen and an untold value of goods are
smuggled in annually.

A SeeediBK Province Prepares to Meet
the Dictator's forces la the Field.
The late dispatches say that the jeal
ousies between the insurgents of tho seced
ing State, Rio Grande do Sul, have !ccn
silenced and a provisional government has
iteen agreed on to prosecute the war agalnt
the Dictator, Fonseca. They made one of
their number, Dr. Assine Bra.ll, Minister of
War. Active measures ar being taken to
lmproe the defences and increaso the
effective strength of the army. The mouth
of the Rio Grande, the principal river of the
Slate, was obstructed by sinking two ships
in the channel, and the river is protected
by heavy artillery. The Junta is in full
control of all the military stores in the
State and of the government factory for
making munitions of war. The provincial
banks and private persons are offering to
furnish the Junta with ample funds to carry
forward tho plans that tr.ajr 1 decided
upon fot maintaining the independence of
the State. The officers sent by Ihe Dictator
to take places of those who cast their for
tunes with tho Insurgents in Rio Grande do
Sul have arrived at Monte Video and pro
pose to proceed at once to their destination.
They assert that several men-of-war nro
now on their way to Rio Grande and others
nro being made ready to follow. The rfu
gees from Rio Janeiro who reached Monte
Video exprcos tho opinion that Fonseca
will not be able long to maintain himself.
His cause is lost, they say. Only the fear
of mob violence in their opinion, now re
strains the discontented opposition at the
Brazilian, capital from active steps against
PAID SECRLT REBATES
The Federal Grand Jury In Chicago
Finds Railroads and Shippers Guilty.
The federal grand jury at Chicago re
turned a number of indictments against
shippers ttnd one railroad hian for practic
ing it system of secret rebates. Indictments
were returned as follows: For obtaining
rebate less than the card tariff, the follow
ing members of tho firm of Swift & Co.:
Gustavus S. Swift, Edwin C. Swift, Louis F.
Swift and D. Edward Harpnell; for the
same offense, George and John Firmenichs,
glucose manufacturcrsyof Marshalltown,
la.: forgiving rates less than the estab
lished tariff, Georgo B. Spriggs, general
freight agent of the New York, Chicago and
St. Louis Railway. The members of the
firm of Swift & Co. wero indicted for obtain
ing rebates on the legal tariff rates from
the Nickel Plate Road. In the last six
months Swift & Co. received over 30,090 in
rebates for meat shipped over that road
alone. The violation of law committed by
the Firmenichs was even greater than the
charges against the Swifts. The glucose
company they control at Marshalltown is
an immense concern, having brarches ail
over the west and an office In Chicago. It
was shown that over SSO.OOO in rebates was
paid to the firm in the last six months.
That the only railroad man Spriggs was
indicted was somewhat of a surprise, but
not a few other railroaders barely escaped.
The evidence against them was not suffi
ciently strong. None of those indicted were
arrested, but they will be compelled to ap
pear and give bail for trial. The penalty
for freight discrimination is set down in the
law at a fine of 51,000 to 5,000, and impris
onment from one to three years, or both, in
the discretion of the court.
-ALASKA FOR ALASKANS."
A Spirit or Revolt Growing in the North
Advices from Alaska state that the peo
ple up there are much Incensed because
Congress has not taken notice of their de
sire for a proper territorial government.
An Alaskan newspaper, in a recent issue,
suggests, in view of tne injustice suffered
from appointive officers under successive
administrations, that the people assemble
In convention, prepare a bill for a terri
torial reform government and demand its
approval by Congress. If Congress refuses
to pass it, every resident of Alaska is ad
vised to rise, unfurl the motto of "Alaska
for Alaskans." elect their own judicial offi
cers and resist all processes emanating
from officials whose tenure ot office is under
the original act
Pneamatlc Mall Tubes.
Postmaster General Wanamaker will
probably ask Congress to appropriate some
thing for experimenting with the pneu
matic tubes for mall service In the large
cities. The department has- no money
available for such a purpose. Inquiries
however, have been made into the possibil
ities of system. It Is said that the pneu
matic tubes work bettor in Berlin than in
other European cities. There the system
costs $700,000 and it has proved profitable.
It has also Increased the telegraph receipts,
and as the government controls the tele
graph, that has been a gain.
The Fare to San Francisco.
When the news was received from St.
Louis announcing that the Transcontinen
tal Association had refused, to grant the
S50 rate for delegates to the Republican
convention, if it is held in San Francisco,
which rate had been guaranteed by the
Southern Pacific company to the committee
of business men who have gone to Washing
ton 10 lay tho San Francisco offer before
the national committee of tho respective
parties, Vice-President Stubbins, of the
Southern Pacific, said: "Our guarantee
for the 550 rate holds' good."
The Pork Was Not Inspected.
An official inquiry in Germany into the
report that American pork Infested with
trichina: was imported into Dusseldorf
brings out the fact that the diseased pork
did not bear the stamp of Americen inspec
tion. Consequently there will be no inter
ference with the admission of American
pork in a healthy condition which has been
properly certified to.
Treasury Snap in Wisconsin.
In the trial of the State Treasurers of
Wisconsin for moneys of the State unlaw
fully turned into their private pockets.

per cent. It was stated that interest had
been received by the State Treasurers as
far back as 1S54.

THIRD PARTY VICTORY.
Tha People's Party Claim to Hate Cap
tured the Alliance;
the People's party men claim to have
captured the Alliance as a result of tho
general election for officers at Indianapolis,
President Polk was unanimously re-elected;
II L. Loucks, of South Dakota, was chosen
Vice President: J. II. Turner re-elected
Secretary and Treasurer, and J. F. Willetts,
of Kansas, nationcl lecturer Mr. Polk, in
his animal address Tuesday night, so
severely condemned tho old parties and so
strongly Indicated his tendencies to the
People's party movement that his re-election
1 regarded as a great Victory for the
People's paity. The election of Mr. Loucks
as Vice President Is regarded as a greater
vidtory, from the fact that he is a member
of tho National committee of the People's
party. The fact that a large number of
Alliance delegates are also members of
other Industrial organizations and working
together would indicate that the trend of
their action was to unification of all and in

BIG FOOT'S BAND RESTLESS.
The Remnant or the Hostile Go Visiting
Special Indian .Allotting Agent
McKean has just returned from a trip
to the old camping grounds of Big
Foot's band of Indians which partici
pated in the late Indian massacre. Ills
object in going there was to allot tne
remnantW this once large band's land
in sevcratlyijupon the ceded lands.
There remains aDout fifty families of the
band and they arc under Chief Red
Cloud. The day beore the allotting
agent arrived the band had sold out all
their stock and took their departure.
Their sudden departure has created
quite i commotion, as the Indians am
not permitted to leave an agency with
out getting a permit from the agent.
Rig Foot's band did not get a permit,
but skipped out, presumably for Pino
Ridge agency. A half dozen Indian
nnlicemcn were sent after them and
overtook them at a ranch about half
jyayjjctwpcn their old home and pine

When JIcKcan left a large force of In
dian policemen had been detailed to
bring them back at any hazard. Tho
object of these Indians in going back to
Pine Ridge is not known, but must be
pure "cussedness,'" as they cannot draw
rations there and they might have se
cured tho agent's permission to pay a

from the sale of their stock will last

that they premeditato another uprising,

ONE SHERIFF TOO MANY.
Sully County, South Dakota, Boasts ol
Sully County-, S." D..' is having a red
hot time over "who owns the office" of
Sheriff. Last fall at the general elec
tion, when it camo tov the count, the
commissioners threw out .one 'precinct
becauso of alleged fraudulent -voting,
which turned the scale for one office,
as in that case Faust, tho Republican
candidate was elected, while if (Icod
water precinct had been counted,
Smith, the Independent candidate,
would have been the winner for Sheriff.
The matter was taken to the Circuit
Court and Judge Fuller declared that
thoie should be a recount, and that
Coodwater precinct should be figured
in on the new deal. This was dono and
Smith was given a certificate of election
by tho Auditor. Now Sully County has
two Sheriffs, as Faust refuses to give
up the keys to his desk and claims he
is yet Sheriff.

A BAD WRECK.
Two Trains Crash Together at Fremont
The Wreck Burned.
Two freight trains collided at Fre
mont, causing a frightful wreck. One
train was sidetracked, but a brakeman
had 16ft tho switch open and tho fast
froight crushed into the cabooso, in
which were twenty people. Ell Hul
ben, the brakeman who left tho switch
open, was working in the second car
frHin thu caboose unloading merchan
dise ahd was crushed into eternity. P.
M. Barnhouso, conductor, was bally
mangled and died within an hour.
E. C. Hardy, an Omaha traveling man.
was wedged between some trunks and a
coal stove, where he was compelled to
stay until a hole was cut through the
side of the car, through which he was
extricated. His recovery is doubtful.
J. A. Bothwell and F. A. Cornett arc
badly injured. An unknown lady had
her collar bone broken, and several
others were badly shaken up. The
engineer and fireman of the through
freight escaped by jumping. The wreck
took lire and burned.
BEATRICE'S DAMAGING FIRE.
fentire Plant of the Oat Meal Company
Destroyed by Flames.
The works of the Beatrice Oat Meal
Company, four stories in height and ono
of the largest concerns of the kind in
the West, was destroyed by lire. The
fire originated on the second floor, and
in an almost incredible short time tho
entire building was ablaze
was saved but a few barrels of the
manufactured product. The workmen
on the upper floors had a narrow escape
The fire is believed to have originated
from a steam pipe. The loss on the
building, machinery and stock is S20.000,
with 50,000 insurance on the building
and machinery and 51,000 on the stock.
Tho mill was recently refitted and
was running night and day to its fullest
capacity of 100 barrels every twelve
hours. The company already had or
ders on its books that would have kept
them running through the entire sea
son, the product being sold as far West
as tho Pacific coast. It will be rebuilt
at once. The stockholders of tho con
cern destroyed aro all Beatrice capi
talists. Burned to a Crisp.
Mrs. Anna Mobkissey, an old lady
living a few miles north of Davey, Neb.,
was found burned to a crisp in tho
ashes of her home by a neighbor. She
had lived by herself for some time. The
supposition is that she was sitting by
the fire and after falling asleep her
dress caught lire. When found nothing
remained but her body, her head and
imbs having been burned off.
A Peculiar Find.
When the Union Pacific pay car
stopped at Odessa, Neb., a peculiar find
was discovered on the pilot of the en
gine. It was a buggy top, carriage
robes and an unconscious man, who
proved to be Burton Salisbury, a travel
ing man. Ho was struck while driving
across the track, and it was found that
he had an arm and leg broken.
A School for Domestics.
The W. C. T. U. of Kcarnoy has
branched out in its charitable work.
The new scheme is to conduct a school
where working girls, particularly do
mestics, may pursue such studies as
they wish, or take instruction in needle

Will Close the Bank.
The Spink County Bank at Rcdfield
has notified depositors to come and get
their money, as the bank desires to
close up its business. The bank was
established in 1S81, and the projectors
have discovered that there Is no money
to be made in the business.
A Season's Work.
The York Canning Factory has just
closed its season's work. It put up
54,000 cans of corn and 40,000 cans of
tomatoes. Next year they expect to
double this, as they did not get started
till too late to make contracts for pro
duce with the farmers.
Fire at Hickman.
Fire destroyed the elevator at Hick
man, togcther-with the coal house ad
joining, thirty-one tons of coal, about
1,500 bushels cf grain and one coal car.
The cause of the fire is not known. The
extent of the damage is about 50,000,
with insurance of 55,50.1.
Plow Factory at Blair.
A company has been organized with a

Northwest every available cubic Inch or

utmost to give tho necessary iL
give tho remote sections the preference,
and to demonstrate how earnest our
efforts lot ate say our locomotives are
worked tts thinr never were before. Tho
moment ono cre leaves another takes
tho engine In hand. Seventeen crews to
six engines Is tho present record. Tho
farmers, nearly every one of them, are
behind In their paymonts and must ha
money. Should tho snow prevent tho
movement of grain starvation will In
many localities end the suffering or
struggling families. Thoy must hao
coal and food. To obtain these they
must secure a market for their crop?,
and If the country buyers cannot move
tho grain then no money can bo paid
Tho Chicago and Northwestern tells
the same story. An ofliclal says: Tho
lines connecting with the seaboard are
crowded to their greatest capacity.
There aro no cars for rental. Even tho
Southern lines aro without extra
"emptiea" The Jforthwostern Is doing
Its utmost to break the blockade.
Every available car Is sent to the North
western gra'n belts. But traffic is un
usually heavy in all commodities and
the cars must go out loaded. There are
few empty cars in tho country at tho
present time. 'I ho farmers, owing to
their need or ready money, aro striving
to delivor to tho buyers at least 50 per
cnt. or their crops. There is elevator
room for only a small portion of thi9
vast amount of grain.
George H. Ross, superintendent of car
and special freight service of the Chi
cago, Burlington & Quincy, said tho
company could use l,C0O cars more than
It now bad to good advantage. Corn
would soon begin to pour in, and then a
greater shortags in cars would be made
annarent. The new crop would be In
active movement during December, and
a grain blockade would be almost cer
tain. The Eastern lines were now un
able to meet the demands made upon
them. What would be the situation in
December he dared not predict
God help the farmers of the North
west should there be a snow blockade
this winter. "
This is the sentiment expressed by tho
oflicials of every railroad over whoso
lines the products of the great grain
belts are to be moved. By reason of the
anxiety of tho farmers to convert their
crops into cash at thu earliest possible
moment tho carrying capacity of each
company is far too limited to meet the
clamorous demand. How long this
freight-car famine will continue is solely
a matter of conjectnre. The enormous
vleld of all cereals, estimated at more
than 700,otO,000 bushels in excess of tho
crop of 1890, and the greatly increased
demand for commodities of every kind
arc tho reasons why tho railways are
short from f 00 to -',500 cars each. All
employes, all locomotives and all cars
are being worked to the utmost limit
Tho poor crops of the last two years
reduced tho tillers of the soil in the
Xorthwe-t to extreme poverty. Money
th y must have. The lavish kindness of
nature in the wheat t.'e ds of 1891 has
again filled with hope the hearts of these
farmers. 'Ihe Interest on their mort
gages may now be paid. Seed Tor noxt
year's sow ng is assured. But their sur
plus grain must bo converted Into cash.
These aro the principal rca ons why the
peop'o of the Northwest arc clamor
ing for cars. Their n evators of limited
capacity are filled. Bins, bed rooms,
barns, and even tents are bursting with
grain, rive hundred million bushels not
vet thrashed arc stacked upon tho prair
ies. Tho buyers can take no more. They
havo 110 placo to store it To give reliof
the railway companies aro doing all that
Every railway through the great
Northwestern wheat bolt has made spe
cial preparation for hauling to market
the phenomenal wheat crop. More
fr ight cars were purch: sod than In any
other year Iu the railroad history of this
section, in addition tho cars wero en
larged and 700 bushels of wheat has be
come a standard car instrai of 500 a:
heretofore, but all preparations aro In
adequate, and every road reports a car
faniim. Tiio crop is moving even more
rapidly than was expo-ted and cars can
not be supplied to irect the demand. The
Railway Commission lias received and
inxestigato i a score of complaints and In
every case it has been shown that it was
sheer 'inability on the part ot the com
panies to furnish sufficient cars. The
roads having the longest hauls are suf
fering tho most so erely, with tho excep
tion of th's Northern lines, from whose
territory little complaint comes. The
greatest apprehension is now felt for the
coal snnnlv. Throush that ereat sec
tion of Western country supplied with
coal via the lakes and Duluth the de
mand for cars is now the greatest for
tho crop, and tho pre cnt cold -nap has
so stimulated the demand for coal as tc
excite the fear that tho car famine will
be intensified later on.
So great is the shortage of freight
cars on the Atchison, Toucka and Santa
Fc that tho farmers of Kansas and the
Southwest are terribly depressed ovci
the poor prospect of an early movement
of their crops The company is exerting
every effort to move the corn and wheat,
and would willingly pay a premium over
and above the mileage for empty cars.
The farmers of the Southwest, while
they need money quite as badly as their
brethren or the Northwest, do not race
starvation as do the iattor by reason ol
the inability of the railroads to handle
"Rushed to our limit," and "Not cars
enough by the hundreds" aro the replies
of the managers of .the Eastern lines.
So heavy, indeed,-is the demand for cars
that many shipments cf grain go across
the ocean via New Orleans! So it is
that the railroads running into Dixie
arc in but litt'e belt r shape than those
of the North, Vc d East.
The Flint and tire Marquette Rail
road, which by reason of its differential
rate was able to carry grain to the sea
b ard ch'apcr-than the all-rail lines, is,
it is ta d, in as bad shape as its Western
cen tcctrons Ihe Northwestern has is
sued to its agents in the Northwest or
