Henry T. Spdfttty, th republican
candidate for councilman of the First
ward, has a considerable interest in the
welfare of that part of the city as a
property owner, and has the qualifica
tions for making a first-class member of
the city legislature. Mr. Spoony is one
01 that class of men who take pnde in
doing the work that is laid upon
them by the confidence of their fellow
citizens, and doing it well. Yon may be
sure he will be found at Jus post of duty,
ready for action whenever the demands
of his ward or of the city are upon him.
He is a man of a great deal mor than
the ordinary ability, and a ver; jreat
deal more than the ordinary courage to
press his views of right and expediency.
With Mr. Spoerry in the legislative body
which largely shapes the expenditure of
the city's money, those who vote for
him may rest assured that the humblest
citizen, as well as the proudest, will have
in him a representative of his interests,
who will help to see that the public
moneys are properly and economically
It has been said as against the can
didacy of J. G. Pollock for the mayoral
ty that his property interests hero are
not large. There is some misapprehen
sion in this matter on the part of those
who use it. Mr. Pollock has always
had, since he has been a resident of the
city, and in the hotel business, several
thousands of dollars' worth of property
invested, and has expended with the
business men of this city from twenty-
five to fifty dollars a day, and this, too,
of money derived almost wholly from
transient trade money brought from
the outside. If property interests are
to be questioned at all, it is well enough
to be juBt
John Hoffman, the well known busi
ness man of Thirteenth street, is the
republican candidate for councilman of
the Second ward. Mr. Hoffman is a man
who takes a lively interest in public
matters, and, though not very demon
strative, ho is nevertheless earnest,
honest and capable, and will make a
first-class councilman. He is thoroughly
well informed on all matters of local im
portance in his ward, and will, in the
filling of the duties of his office, be
guided by the law, by common sense
and justice to all interests concerned.
Henry Bristol, one of the most suc
cessful raisers of wheat in this vicinity,
always drills his grain in, and before
sowing he always runs his seed through
a fanning. mill twice in order to takeout
all of the weed seed and small wheat.
By so doing he always gets a good stand
and never fails to get a good crop. Per
haps if some of our farmers who have
had "poor luck" raising wheat would
try Mr. .Bristol's plan tney w
with better success. Howe
The candidate of the republicans for
councilman of the Third ward, Gus G.
Becher, is too well known to our readers
to need any commendation from The
Journal. No man in the ward, proba
bly, is better acquainted with its needs,
or in better position to have those needs
recognized by the city authorities than
is Gus Becher. Those who have any
doubt about this can very readily have
those doubts dispelled by a few minutes
talk with Mr. Becher.
. H. Galley purposes enlarging his
store, making sin addition running back
to the alley, thus giving him a room one
hundred and thirty-two feet in length.
He will also put in a new front with
French plate glass, thus making one of
tho very best and most commodious es
tablishments in the city. Mr. Galley,
by the way, is a thorough-going busi
ness man and has established an en
viable reputation for fair, square, all-the-year-round
The program of the Y. M. C. A. of
district number one, embracing tho
counties north of the Platte river, for
the third annual convention, has been
distributed. The convention is to be
held here April 8-10, in the Congrega
tional church, and among those to be
present are: the Very Rev. Charles H.
Gardner, dean of Trinity Cathedral,

He was on the street car when a run

head against the other side and stunning
him so that he was unconscious. He
was getting along well when last heard
from. Monroe Looking Glass.

The first Sunday in April is State
Sunday school day, when every Sunday

work of organizing schools in the state.
Street Commissioner Elliott was at

Reno & Ford's "Joshua Simpkins"
company will be tho attraction at the
opera house this (Wednesday) evening.
As the title at onco suggests, it is a
rural drama or comedy-drama, showing
the honest simplicity of New England
country life as compared with the hustle
and pitfalls of the great metropolis.
The action of the piece opens on Maple
Sap Farm, in a small Vermont village,
and changes to Now York City, which
"Uncle Joshua" favors with his first visit.
He is at once set on by tho wolves and
sharks of the great city, but as ho reads
tho papers and is not as green as ho
appears, he bailies the bunco steorers
and confidence men who seek him for
their prey. The play allows of many
very funny scenes and situations which
are not lost sight of by the company.
There is also a well defined plot and
several startling dramatic scenes and
situations. Incidental to the action of
the piece, many pleasing and excellent
singing and dancing specialties are in

would have been equally as bad as the

being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.' "

Oare 31 ore. A Chrixtian Burial for Chris
Ed. Journal: Two articles appeared
in your last issno in reference to the
abovo mentioned statement. It would
bo useless to enter upon a detailed re
ply to the same. I will simply say this.
Tho broad viows of Christianity which
characterize our nineteenth century and
which are so loudly proclaimed in tho
"Partial Review," are not contained in
the scriptures, are not the loving Sa
vior's teachings. The teachings of the
loving Savior have always been and are
appallingly so in our days, an offence to
tne great multitude or tne worlds
people, consequently when scripture is
held up to them and scriptural truths
practiced they cry: "bigotry! intol
erance!" It was bo in the days of
Christ's visible presence on earth, and it
is. so to-day and will continue to be so
unto the end.
To the writer who cal$, .huaaett HNot
Infallible," I would' especially say, that
if at any time in the future he should be
tempted to write about some one, he
should at first make sure whether his
statements can stand the test of truth.
The whole passage of the "Redding
affair," (which by the way, stands in no
connection whatever with the disputed
question,) is, as far as my person is con
cerned, a blunt lie. If the Rev. Redding
really did such good work here; it cer
tainly did not affect the "N. I." very
much. Probably it would be good to
have Mr. Redding another three weeks
here, to teach the "N. I." to put away
lying and to speak the truth. - So the
"side light" of the "N. I." turns out to
be a sitle shadow, thrown upon himself.
As to ray reasons upon which I base
my action of refusing christian burials
to non christians, they have not been
weakened by the objections the "N I."
raises, and as long as this is not the case
there is no need for better ones.
Atthe;closinj?,of his article the"N
L" says: "That" a man may, exception-"
ally perhaps, go to heaven without any
help from any chnrch whatever, the
strictest bible christian will not deny,
for it is plainly shown in the case of the
malefactor on the cross," (which state
ment, by the way, reveals very confused
ideas concerning the doctrino of the
church,) and then continues: "Was
Mr. Heintz as bad as that criminal?
Supposing he had been worse, does Mr.
M. know if ho did not ask for and re
ceived pardon nt the eleventh hour?"
Whether Mr. Heintz asked for and re
ceived pardon at the eleventh hour I do
not know. I cannot look into the hearts
of men; but is there any earthly evi
dence that he did ask for pardon? He
was known ns a despiser of tho word of
God unto his end, and Christ, who
judges the heart, says: "He that is of
God, heareth God's words; ye therefore
hear them not, because ye are not of
God." And through the prophet Hosea,
God says: "Because thou hast rejected
knowledge (i. o. the word of God) I will
also reject thee." If we therefore con
demn a despiser of tho word of uod, as
Mr. Heintz has been ono, we do this in
full accordance with God's word and if
in this case tho words of Christ: "Judge
not that ye be not judged," are held up
against us, they are entirely wrongly ap
plied. II. MlESSLER.
Another Interesting Letter from onr Itcsi
Bno. Turjtek: Since my last letter to
you there have been many developments
m the way of improvements in tho furth
er growth of our big, southern babe, Vo
lasco. It certainly is a marvel of its age
and you would bear me out iu the asser
tion were you here.
Wo are in the midst of beautiful spring
with all that we enjoy of that season in
Nebraska and much more in the way of
birds, flowers, garden vegetables and tine
atmosphere. Pine, costly buildings are
still going up, now principally large
bricks, and still more talked of. The
plans and specifications for an elevator
with a capacity of 100,000 bus. of grain
and annexed a large cotton compress are
in, and the work soon to begin; a large
exchange building also a board of trade
building, and more large, business houses
are nnder way of construction. The ex
tension of the wharf is being pushed by
the syndicate; the jetties are still being
worked on for permanence.
A corps of engineers have started the
survey from there for Richmond for a
railroad line to tap the M. K. & T. sys
tem. The Sante Fe will also run in here,
so in the near future we will be in com
munication by land and sea on all com
pass points. New shipping appears in
the port every week, showing that com
merce by 6ea is gaining rapidly at Velas
co. The freight trains on the new road
are growing longer every day. The traf
fic in city property is quite active, and
what we need now is more farmers to set
tle in here, while they can get near the
city. In my judgment there are plenty
of mercantile businesses here now, for the
present but still the foundations are be
ing laid for many more; probably they
see further iu the future than I do, but
with the hosts of business houses, thea
ters, churches, etc. one would think it is
enough, but still they come. There was
a rush of mechanics until the supply was
gorged and many of the surplus have left
disgusted because they did not get work,
but I have been fortunate enough to se
cure plenty to do.
Boat building is employing quite a
number of people; an ice plant, 15-ton-capacity
daily, is being put in. when ice
will be plentiful and cheap. To-day the
temperature is 61 degrees above. The
health is good yet, no one sick. The doc
tors have tho most unhealthy appear
ance and seem to find the most objections
to the health of the city. I am surprised
myself when there are hundreds of peo
ple living in tents and rude shanties along
the riverside, sleeping on the ground, in
cluding women and children and no one
sick. There are here the healthiest look-
ing women and children that 1 have ever
found in my travels.
So far as my judgment goes up'to date
I would not be in doubt to advise com
ing here, especially ladies and children.
Catarrh and asthma are cured here in
a month's time and no medicine needed.
Colds and coughs are very little noticed.
Spaniards are plentiful, and so are ne
groes and Chinamen. No mosquitos as
