LISCOLN , January 18. Another diy
< f suspense and excitement. The bal
lots taken to-day were both a surptiio
and disappointment. Millard'a boom
collapsed before it reached tha di
mensions that were predicted by hit
supporters. The fuiluro Is chiefly
aaoribnd to the fact that many mom-
bars who had pledged him support
bicknd down bocaust ) they did not
dare to go homo with such records
Thayer's increased vote created great
commotion in the camp of rival cindl
dates , The impression bacame
general in the lobby that
Thayur was the coming in in. This
impression was strengthened by
general activity among Thayer'a lobby ,
and at about 8 p n > . the Mnndcraon ,
Siundars and Co win followers were
panic struck ever the report the
Union Pacific and Burlington & Mis
sourl had pooled on Thayer in collu
sion with Rose water , who was represented
sentod na pledged to deliver the atiti
monopoly vote tj Thayor. Tnis
cinard ciuiod lively commotion for a
time * anion ? the camp followers
of the Omiha cyndicato. I
communicated itself to u conference
of the rjpablicins. Gwy , of
Douglass , who had boon chltf supporter
* or of Mlllard , denounced Thayer as n
Union Pacific pensioner , and general
crimination and recrimination was in
dulged in between Millard men and
Thayer men. The conference ad
journed at ton p. m. without reaching
any conclusion. The outlook for to
morrow indicates another field day
without much change except the trans
far of Millard's votes to various can
didatcs. It U freely predicted that al
the leading republican candidates wll
bo defeated in turn , and dark horse *
are baing groomed for the last heat

NEW YORK , January 18. There Is
considerable exaltemont in billiard
circles over the action of Slosson in
rt fusing to enter the list for tourna
ments announced to take place in
Ohlcogo and Now York. Sloeson
gives as his reasons , American players
have been entirely ignored , and the
securing of Yigneaux in the joint in
toresta of Oallandor and Bruuawick &
ttalko company's ia nothing moro or
less than a big advertising scheme.
The champion mid yesterday arrange
ments with Yigneaux were cf such a
character that ho has nothing to lone ,
being guaranteed expenses and $0,000
for six months. Wo all want a trial
with Vignoaux , but lot the billiard
table manufacturers take their hands
off , and lot the Frenchman meet us on
equal looting with nothing In his favor ,
and may the boatman win. Kjhaeffer
and Dion also refused to play , and the
dlasatlsfaction becomes general.

By the time ho had finished his ml-

ewer her curia , rub oil the rouge with

umbler of water , unscrew her cork

About this time everybody was on

and wonder away with many blushes
to a moro open space , where
they try it again. Nobody seems
to notice the little by-play All
ivro dancing , or trying to dance , and
have enough to do 'o attend to their

neither of whom know how to waltz
or have the slightest idea of the nmjio
P'lwer of the rhythm ; but that dors
not so'in to disturb them in the loaat.
Round and round they swing , cxocut

both grow so dizzy that , they ataggur

when they launch upon a now series
of revolutions.
But there are plenty of good dancers
on the iloor whom it Is n pleasure to
watch. They do not adopt the limp ,
icithotlcal attitude and lazy lope of thi
fashionable city waltzor , but go whirl
ing down the floor at a good lively
pace and , even whore the crowd la
thickest , carom from couple to couple
like blllard balls. The young lady
does not lay her cheek affectionately
on the young gontlpman's shoulder ,
nor stretch out her lilly-whito arm am
feathered fan in the direction of the
Polar star , where it muots her part
ner's at an * equally inconvenient
and ridiculous altitude , but she
dances In a natural position , slightly
inclined forward and supported by her
partnor'a arm , while ono hand rests
firmly on hlnnhouldor and thu other is
clasped ' / am disengaged hand. Tnero
is H rpitii and spirit , an endurance
auil evident enjoyment about tiioso
country dances which you will look
for in vain In the enervating and pjr

Those young people will danoo al
