does not want to find work (whicn,

! that makes the vtramp he tries to get
nnmethimr for nothing. In character he
is not different from any other of his
kind whether they live in fine houses
and wear good clothes, or go from house
to house, in rags. The man who lives
npon society without giving an equiva
lent, whether he be called king or beg
gar, has the elements of a tramp, ordi
nary or extraordinary, and the better
classes of society should find fit reme
dies against both of them. The repub
lican party started out to lower tne
crest of one of the greatest tramps the
world ever saw in the shape of the lnsti-1
tution of human slavery, assuming not
only to take the work of millions of
their fellow-creatures for a mere "pit
tance of what it was worth (their keep),
but claiming property in the flesh and
blood of men, women and children, and
a right to say that these should be kept
in the grossest ignorance, to the end
that slavery might spread. The wrath
of the slaveholders made emancipation
a necessity. There are now corpoiated
evils recognized by men generally as
belonging to the class of robbers of the
public, (idlers, gamblers, wreckers or.
business values, etc) that must oe
checked, or overthrown, else the condi

Big Fire at Liacela.
Last Tuesday evening at 8:30 a fire
broke out in the building occupied by
the Lincoln Paint and Color Company,
corner of Eighth and O sta, at the state
capital, and in half an hour the walls of
the large, four-story building fell in, and
in another half hour $100,000 worth of
property had gone up in smoke. Owing
to the nature of the contents several
car loads of paint and two hundred bar
rels of linseed oil, the heat was very
intense, and the adjoining property, the
wholesale grocery of Baymond .Bros.,
would doubtless have been food for the
flames, except for a double brick wall at
which the fire department were able to
make some headway. It is stated by
one of the Lincoln papers that it was
fully fifteen .minutes before the full
pressure was turned on the hose, and
water played till midnight on the ruins,
which were smoking yet on Wednesday
evening. The stock was valued at $05,-
000, machinery 15,000, and both were a
total loss. The amount of insurance
was S32.500. The bnilding was owned
by J. S. Gregory and was valued at $20,
000 to $25,000. It was insured for $10,
000. It is not known how the fire
originated; the book-keeper, Homer
Taylor, was the last man in the build
ing, and left it at 7 o'clock, after having
looked clear through it, and found ev
erything in the usual good order. The
company had been in business nearly
five years, and had a splendid establish
ment one of the best in the country,
their trade extending in every part of
the United States. It is said they will
renew business as soon as possible. Ev
ery business man in the city deplores
the loss as of one of the most nourish
ing establishments in the state.
At a quarter after twelve Friday, a
man shabbdy dressed and carrying a
brown hand bag, called at the office of
Russell Sage, Broadway, N. Y., and
asked to see Mr. Sage. He was told
that Sage was busy, but continued to
talk loud, when Sage came out to see
what was the matter. He asked the
man, who gave his name as H. D. Wil
liams, what was wanted. He said "If
you don't give me a $1,000,000 I will
blow you to pieces." On being refused,
the man opened the bag, produced a
dynamite bomb, and threw it at Sage.
Two of Sage's clerks were instantly
killed and several dangerously wounded.
One of he killed is a young lady type
writer. Sage's injuries were not serious.
The assailant was killed and the safe
was broken open by the explosion and
