That's , A pretty big

is jmt the amount W. T.
Bluckwoll & Co. paid

1881 for stamps to puton
the tobicco they sold ,
and those stamps woto
put on over twenty-five
million little bigaand
packages of tobacco that
are nil smoked up long
before this , for millions
of little bags are being
filled with tobicco , label

Why is this ? Simply
because it is the best.
Messrs. Blackwell&Oo. , .
are located in the heart
of the finest tobacco

world. They have plen

largest buyers of the
best grade of leaf and
thus have the pick of the
maiket and what is more
they have never yielded
to the common practice
of adulterating their to
bacco , but hare always
kept it up to the stan

It has cost them over

It's funny how many
manufacturers try to got

They seem to think if

After several fruitless efforts to pass
bills by un'animaus consent , the house
went into committee of the whole on
thn deficency bill.
The house spent the entire day on
the deficiency bill , it passing an
amendment to the section approprial
ing$350,000 for repairs to the navy
and that for payment for army trans
portation , the republicans voting yea
and the democrats voting no.
When it came to the section appro
priating $122,000 for p ymontc of spe
cial deputio at congressional elections ,
Mr. O ix stated , as the marshals had
worked in good faith , expecting to be
paid , his side had decided to vote in
favor of paying them , disclaiming any ,
responsibility f * r the law , and stating
expressly they did not yield their
judgment as to the constitutionality or
justice of the law. The section was
adopted by rising vote , most of the
democrats voted against it.
The bill passed then by 116 to 7 and

TIIK TARIFF COMMISSION.
The caucus of the democratic sena
tors lasted four hours and a half. Thu
object was to unite the party in oppo
sition to the entire list of tariff com
missioners. It waa believed that Van
Wyck would vote with them. There
were twenty-four present , and the dis
cussion was animated , owing to the
fact that Boino members of the com
mission wore appointed on recommen
dation of some members present. It
was found to bo impossible to unite
the party on the entire list and the
caucus adjourned without any action. I

AN OLD INDIAN TOWN ,

Correspondence ) of The Deo.
Luvris , IA. , June 2 , 1882. -
II was in the year 1833 , if wo re
member correctly , that the 7,000 Pot-
tawattamios mot at the village of
Chicago , and agreed to move beyond
the Mississippi ; and , it Booms to be
well understood , that after that date ,
the principal settlement of this tribe
was at Indian town , a mile or to west
of the present 'town of Lewis , or in
other words , the rod man's village was
on the west sitjo , and the white man's
town , afterwards , way 6u the east
bank of the east Nishna ; and only a
ihort distance from the "crab apple
trove" that was known for some miles
way , as was the "lone tree , " at the
lomo of Buffalo Bill and the present
Central City. Indiantawn was called ,
jy Mi-au-miso ( the young Miami ) ,
iftor their favorite chief. The trading
ioat und Indian agency was at Traders'
'oint on the Missouri , and the store
hero waa kept by Peter Sarpy , of St. li
jouia , a man quito famous in Nobrs > lic lin
u , and for whom a county in thut c
tate is named. Tradition brings to .
is the story of a clerk in the store at
traders' Point falling in love with a
kss county Indian girl , and

Jmself , or wasting a quantity of
ipwor and valuable load , trying to
ill himself , ho just put on the Indian
tress , and wore paint , and "jinod in
or the balance of life , " and is sup-
losed to have received his rations
nd full quota of arms and atumuni-
ion from the government , and done
iis part of the scalping like a faith-
ul and patriotio Indian. The tribe

is supposed that there are buried
he remains of their most noted chief ,
lahaska , who wan shot by a inoak
liiof Indian , while sitting by the lire ,
n the banks of the Nodaway , during
fishing excursion , and the records
f the trial and execution fail to
how that those simple-minded people
laced any dependence on the "plea
f insanity , " or that the beautiful and
oOnod ladies of that day showed
very attention and kindness , allow- 1
bio to the murderer ; and forgot all
tie oilicos and noble qualities
the fallen chief , who
ad h died instantly , because i
o h d not led his friends whore f
ley could take 11 the scalps they
needed. The white people have re-
mombercd the fallen chief by giving
his name to ono of the counties in this
stntr. In the fall of 1840 the Mor
mons scattered all over this pnrt of the
tate , and some settlements wore made
along the Nishun , and ono of these
was nt Lewis , orlndinnlown , which In

Indian creek , was the principal trading
point , although Indiantown had two
or three stores , The names of many nf
men who figured here at that time
have become quite noted , among
which ono Bradshaw and Wintuisot ,
and Peter Hedges , who kept a tavern
at Irouiston , nnd was supported most
ly by emigrants. V. M , Conr d or
dinarily owned the laud whore the
town of Lewis now stands , and feel
ing that duplicity was used by the
legislative committee or some ono else ,
wfien the town was located , so that
the land was secured from him nnd
the profits given to another , has taken
sweet revenge in helping , a few years
ninoo , to remove the county seat from
this place to Atlantic. The old town
of Lewis , with its churches , largo
stores , fine houses , old shndo trues ,
busy tradesmen and county offices ,
has gone to decay , for since Iho coun
ty seat wont to Atlantic in 18G9 the
town had to settle down in quietness
and build on a now foundation. Two
years ago when the railroad was'built
here , an addition was laid out between
the old town and the railroad , and the
business has all boon moved to the
now addition , The town is beauti
fully' located on a rolling
well drained , slope , well supplied with
strong stado trees , good siuo walks ,
many good residences , and plenty
more excellent and iuvitin locations.
The design of those who laid out the
now town was that the trading houses
should bo collected around a public
square , but the average burger selects
Ills own trading ground as independ
ently as the Union Pacific road selects
its congressmen , or lieutenant gover
nors , for their "trading advantages , "
and the lower side of the tquaro has
been loft op on. The park , or square
has just been sot with trees , and a
beautiful white fence placed around it ,
making it a thing of beauty.
of the town has been quite steady and
satisfactory since the railroad came
along two years ago last fall , and
now it is claimed there are about 800
living souls in the city , and a rich and1
prosperous farming settlement all
around. Tho-'Nishna valley is here
narrow , and the stream furnishes the
best wafer pow.er expected anywhere
in this state. ' '

are all that , oould be asked for. Thor
are several good churches and th

A Cameron Story-
Katlonal Awclatod I'rcas.
PuiLADEtruiA , Juno 8. Develop'
wonts made to-day show the absolute
falsity of the widely published state
ment that Senator Cameron , at a re
cent conference with representatives
of industrial interests , thi oaten to op
pose all tariff measures in the senate
unless the general support by republi
cans was given the llnrrinburg ticket.
It now appears that the story was told
as a joke by a looker-onat , the conference
once to a friend , who is a reporter on
an afternoon republican paper
bitterly hostile to Cameron , and in
which the statement was first pub
lished and from wnich it was tele
graphed all over the country. Tho.
Sunday morning papers which pub
lished the statement obtained it from-
Iho same reporter. Yesterday even
ing a friend becoming alarmed at the'
feeling against Cameron which
the statement had created sent
for the reporter and made a
free confession to the reporter , who <
is an anti-Cameron man , and also-
made a lull statement to Col. Frank
Taggart , the secretary of the regular
republican state committee. In tho-
same connection , it may bo said thai
a number of pacticipants in the con
ference who were interviewed a few
diys ago by the National associated i
press n prcsontative ,
make the remark. The name of the-
"friend" involved lias not yet been
made public , but It is said that the
republican state committee contem
plate immediate action in th *
promises. _ _
