LINCOLN , October 15. I tliink it
was in March , when winter's Insl
struggles broke the ice in tlio streams
that flow in this section of the world ,
that I was last at th s place. The
Salt Greek was tht'ii some thrco miles
wide and caino up to Sixth street in
the city. Well , I remember being
paddled up O. Btroot on n raft , but
now I find a line of "Hordics" run
ning on schedule time. They are nn
excellent substitute for horse cars , and
fill a demand long felt by tliu people ,
nnd , judging from the patronage they
have had for the first live dnysof their
existence , they are duly appreciated.
Two more coaches are to bo added to
the line next week.
The most striking feature one sees
on arm.1.1 n Lincoln , is the now throe
story brick blocks tli.it have crowded
old rookeries into the , street nnd
sprung up in their place.
Soon aftos Nebraska became a ter
ritory the capital was located here.
Lincoln has boon a capital for thirteen
i Oh , say ; Mr. Editor , I wish you
could smell of my "button hole ; " the
exquisitely blonuod aroma of "moss
rosii" and "sweet p6a" constantly re
freshing raj * memory of the estcom ( ? )

persistanco to establish women's rights

you to nioyo your ofllco to this place.
The boss Her lives hnro. I met him
in the train. In writing for n metro
politan paper my experience tenches
me that it is best not to enter into per
sonalities , hence I will refrain giving
his name lest some of his neighbors
might got joaloiiE of him. lie told
mo the population of Lincoln was
greater than that of any place in the
State , and that there Hero numerous
saline springs near , and the govern
ment had recently bought GOO acres of
land in the great salt basin and intend
ed to manufacture salt on an extensive
scale , employing several hundred
hands. Ho also naid that as an whole
sale trading post Lincoln was by far
ahead of any of them in the West and
geographically speaking was in the
center of the United States both in
latitude and longitude , und no doubt ,
the government would find it to their
advantage to remove the capital from
Washington to this place , before he
was dead La-do-da.
'Fourteen years ago the fitato board
of commissioners locatedltho site for
' the future capital of Nebraska at Lin-
coln. It took thorn three years to
find enough to make n starting place.
'To-day wo find over 17,000 people and
Since my last visit there has boon
built 51 brick business houses , 30 two-
atory , and 1C throe-stories high ut an
actual outlay of $350,000.
One of the finest depot buildings in
the west , at a cost of 9100,000 , orna
ments the city ( nnd connects seven
branches ot railroads , with a fair ( ? )
prospect for one or tin o more.
I am informed that over 1,000
dwelling houses have been put up.
One wing of the capitol has been
completed , nnd nnotheristartod , which
is to cost $200,000. I finl improve
ments generally in meandering about
the city , in the way of "fixing up"
the lawns , planting shade trees and
putting down permanent stone- ' walks ,
assuming a metropolitan 'shapo all
Some strong argument might bo
used in favor of waterworks. The
dense population of the city , together
with the cult naturally found here ,
' tends to impregnate the water in the
wells with u malarial form
of disease that is not calculated
to bo enjoyed ; indeed , there
are several obstinate cases of typhoid
fever reported now , and "pink pyo"
is whispered as having made its up-
poaranco among the hoises. It is evi
dent that the time has come for the
people of Lincoln to bo renovating the
city , establish ft system of sewerage ,
pump pure , fr6sh water , bury the
ccsonools , and clean out the cisterns ,
that's the way ! If I owned n city

Lincoln Socaino a city she wanted one
too. Lincoln is bound to have nny-
tliing tliut any other town has , wheth
er it is a railroad , an ineauo asylum ,
or a speckled lion.
Lincoln could have bought Omaha' "
elephant at u discount , but nho wanted
one new , with the paint all on , fresh.
Second hand ! who ever wanted > c
buy a second hand elephant
Not any for Lincoln. So the city or
dered one several years ago , the idea
was that it could bo utalizeu in build
ing up the city and every one wan anx
ious to see it. Finally the city was
notified that one train of cars loaded
with elephant had arrived , with roc
flags on , bolikening extra trains run
ning wild , wore following and the city
was invited to come down to the dopol
and pay- the first installment of freight ,
and take the thing away that part o :
that had arrived. The aldermen woni
down and took an inventory of it am
some of them ran away , Lancaster
county that means Lincoln , for Lin
coin represents a good share of her
valuation bonded herself f or 9300,000 ,
to pay the freight on this mbnator vie
lhant , and still it came. It took Un
'trains a day on each of the seven
brandies of railroad loading into Lin
coin to brinu this elephant and it is
not all there yet ,
. .Now that these roads are proved in
fidcquato for the tnsk 'they ( ire g6ing
to build nnollior from Ircomont to

Hint is to bo $50,000 more.
It nas nrguod that the onlv way to
got this oloplmnt up to the city would
be to give the rnilroiul the right ol
wny up town through it. Sonio wore
in favor of tolling the rnilroad to take
the city outright and save freight , but
the company threatened to got out an
injunction on the county and they
paid it. Finally a man \vho takes
contracts for moving brick buildings
agreed to bring this p-vrt of the ele
phant up town on sharosand hnabocn
to work on it with ICO span of mules
This is the king of bcatlH ,
and it takes all the hay that
grows in Nebraska-in value
to make a bed for him once a year so
ho will stand easy for a while. Ho
hns stood here for several years with
out any covering nnd hns drank "salt
water" until ho is "aweful thirsty , "
now ho wants fresh water , and is
howling loud. People look at him
and wocp. Every alderman swears ho
voted against buying him. Occasion
ally some ono of ' 'tho dnd" would
suggest that the oloplmnt bo taken out
to the river a couple of miles and al
lowed to drink , when another ono
would move to amend by inserting a
clause that the river bo moved into
the city ai it would save expense.
And now the rjuoaticm is being probed ,
to ascertain the expanse of building a
neil 50 feet in diameter over on the
Platte bottom and forcing water from
it to the city , and it begins to look
quito feasible. ROVKII.
A Sketch of Hin Career nil Foot
NovelUtand Jonrnnllnt ,
NEwYoiiK , October 12. Dr. J.
U. Holland , the pont , died suddenly
this mornniK. Ho was apparently
perfectly healthy yesterday , and spent
tlio day at the publication ofllco preparing -
paring "Topics of the Times" for the
December number. Ho awoke at _ 5
i. m. and spoke to his wife about ris
ing. A few moments later ho began
breathing heavily. Before any ono
could bo summoned ho was dead. Dr.
Josiah Qilbort Holland Was born at
[ ) olchortownMass. , July24,1810 , and
was thordforoat the time of his death a
ittlo over G2 years of ape. His uni-
erin and splendid health , his erect
brm , straight as nn arrow , seemed to
ndicato a vitality that would not bo
exhausted for years , and his sudden
death from heart disease will startle
ho literary world ) who may have ox-
icctod for years to eomo a series of
lelightful essays , charming poems ,
ind common.BUH80 papers , such as
mvo flowed from his pen with such
regularity lor the past twentjr-fivo
'cars. Dr. Holland formed a striking
iguro among the literary men of Now
fork. His orcct , compact figure , his
mndaomo , noticeable face with a
in go in it suggestive of abor-
ginal blood his dark , ilaali-
ng oyoi , his black hair
and aquiline nose also indicative ,
) orhap8 , of a touch of Indian blood
n Ills veins wore familiar to thou-
ands and tons of thousands of the
luoplo of this country , before whom
10 appeared upon the lecture plat-
onn. No lecturer in 'Now ' York has
won in greater demand for the past
iwqnty years , with tw-o' , or three
marked exceptions , than Dr. Holland ,
and the demand came from all parts
> f the country , in which his books
iayo become , 11) ) many homes at least ,
iko household Words. His 'income '
rom the lecture Hold , together with
lis copyrights aiid the handsome prof-
ts ot Scribnor's Magazine , of which
) o was oiio-third proprietor , made
lim ono of the wealthiest purely lit-
irary men in Now York. For a num-
) cr of years his annual income lias
ranged from § 20,000 to 30,000
Dr. Holland's career was mainly a
itorary career , and was markodlysuc-
ccseful. Ho started out in Jifo to bo-
iomo a physician , and , after graduat-
ng at the .Berkshire Medical college
at'PittsDold , Mass. , practiced medi
cine for a year or two in the western
part of that state. After h brief experience
perience- went to Vicksburg , Miss. ,
where he remained ror a year , filling
the position of superintendent of
public schools. This was in 1848 ,
when the slave power was at its
height , and the young school teacher
imbibed a hatred of slavery , which
remained with him till the end of his
days. To live in the same city with
slaves uround him grew in
tolerable , nnd in 1847 Dr. Holland re
turned to Springliold , where shortly
afterward ho became connected with
The Springfield Republican. The Re
publican was then the organ of the
much hated abolitionists , and fostered
the hostility to slavery which after
ward brought into existence the re
publican party. Dr. Holland re-
mninod with The Republican twenty *
three years. His journalistic training
probably helped to fashion his terse ,
cle.m cut , notvoua style , and to give
him that sympathy with the puoplo
at largo , to whom his poems ,
novels and essays were mainly ad
dressed. It was during his connec
tion with The Republican that ho
wrote most of the works , now famil-
lar to the whole reading world. In
1835 ho published ' "History of
Western Massachusetts , " accounted
one of the best local histories of the
state oxtant. Tlio history suggested
a romancojimd in 1857 appeared "Tho
Hay Path ; a Tale of Now England
Colonial Life , " written "with the be
lief that the early colonial life of Now
England , though cramped in the
creeds , rigid in the governmental
policy , formal in its society and home
ly in its details , was neither without
its romantic aspects nor its heroes , in
high and humble position , with whoso
full hearts , independent wills and
manly struggles , the largest spirit of
this ago may fully sympathise. " The
merit and didactic aspects of Dr. Hol
land's nature found scope in
the "Timothy Titoomb Letters , " pub-
lisliodin 1857 , and "Lottors to the
Young , " published in 1858 , both of
them collections of a series of epistles
on life and morals which had been
published in the Republican. His first
poem , "Bitter Sweet , " followed a few
months after. The work is ono of the
most popular of Dr. Holland's ' , olForU ,
and gives in dramatic form a sweet and
touching picture of Now England lifo ,
forming one of the few really indigen
ous American productions. "Gold
Foil Hammered from .Popular Pro-
vorbi , " was jf a wider soopo in its
treatment of social subjects than the
"Titcomb Letters , " but of the same
general character , and with both may
bo classed "Lesions in Life" 0801) ) ,
"Lottors to the , Ionoscs"tl801) , ' 'Plnin
Talks on Faniilinr Subjects1' (18C5) ( ) .
Dr. Holland was the author of four
novels : "Miss Gilbert's Career , "
"Arthur Bonnicastlo , " "Sovhn Oaks"
and "Nicholas Minturn , " all convoy
ing a 'moral lesson in some shape , nnd
nil marked with n successful , though
none promise a permanent populnrity.
Ilesidoi the poem of "Bitter Sweet , "
ho wrote "Katrina , " which appeared
in 1807 , nnd attained a fiftieth cdi-
lion , "Tho Marble Prophecy , and
Other Poems , " published in 1872 , nnd
"Tho Mistress of the Manse , " inl87 < 4.
In 1805 Dr. Holland prepared a "Life
of Abraham Linco n , which speedily
attained a circulation of 80,000 copies.
In 180(5 ( ho visited Europe with his
wife nnd children two daughters
and n son spending two years in
England and on the continent. It
was dilrin a short stay in Geneva ,
Switzerland , that ho conceived the
idea of Rcribnor's Monthly , the plan
of which was sketched at the bndgo
on Mont Blanc. In 1870 , in conjunc
tion with Roswell Smith and the
firm of Ohnrlcs Scrihnor & Co. , the
magazine was issued , The magazine
nisumcd a pure , high-toned character
from the start , and hns been a financial
Buceess. In the "Topics of the Titno , '
chiefly written by him , ho handled
the leading questions of the day in n
series of thoughtful and earnest essays ,
which commanded attention even in
quarters not interested in his poems
nnd novels. Dr. Holland became n
member of the board of education of
Now York city in 1872 , and was
elected president , thus becoming the
head of the common school system of
the city , while ho also held the chair
manship of the board of trustees of
the college of the city of Now York.
Ho declined a re-appointment to the
former position id 1878. Among
his micellanoolis poems is the
following , which forms an appro
priate close to a sketch of his life :
Heaven la not reached at a single bound ,
IJut wo build the ladder by which wo
