THE cholera has caused a panic among
American tourists in Europe , and they
are hastening to England , and from
there they will return homo. The ma

and thfcy can spend the rest of the sum

the principal places of interest in the
now world. There are too many Ameri

THE eighteenth annual national en
campment of the Grand Army of the
Republic begins at Minneapolis to-day.
It promises to bo a grand affair , and in
all probability it will eclipse all previous
encampments. Ifon. John A. "Logan,1
the first commander of the organization ,
will bo present at the encampment. It
lias always boon claimed that the organi
zition is non-political , and as a body has
never yet taken issue with the great
political parties. The object of the Grand
Army is to promote and protect the
interests of the old aoldiora and to keep
alive the memories of the war.
Ono of its most commendable features
in that particular is the special committee
on pensions. The committee ia compoa
d of five members , and goes yearly to
Washington and represents and urges the
pension interests of the G. A. 11. mem
bers before the aonato and congrcniioual
committees on pensions.
STATU elections hold prior to the pres ,
idential election in November , material '
ly possess more interest during the presi
dential year than at any other timo.
This ifl particulaily the coso whcro the
state is BO close that it it classed as
doubtful. In such a state the state elec
tion is taken as an indication of how the
people will vote for president. There
are Bovon states that hold elections before
ho general election. Alabama votes
for state oflicors and members of tbo log' '
islaturo , on Monday August 4. Arkansas
votes for the same oflicors on September 1.
Vermont elects' ' state oflicors and ropro
eontatives to congrow , on Tuesday September
tembor 2 , and six days afterward Maine
also elects state oflicors and congress
men. The first of October coma on a
"Wednesday , and on that day Georgia
will elect local officers. The 14th of
October is a peculiarly moraoutoin day ,
for then both Ohio and West Virginia
elect , the former ntato oflicors and con
gressmen , and the latter slate oflicors
and a legislature.
Tbo interest of the October election
centers in Ohio and West Virginia , lu
which states a bitter fight will be made.
Ohio has always gene republican in a
presidential campiign , and wo don't believe -
liovo aho will go back on her record thU
year. It is true that eho ho a domowallo
legislature , owing to local istuw , bat.the
republicans of Ohio are in the majority
and they will not throw away any votoe
in this important year. The republican
/actions iu West Virginia have united on
a state ticket , and will probably carry
ibo dtato. This will bo A big victory for
The decision recently rendered by the
supreme court of Illinois in the case of
W. J. Gonnoll against the Pennsylvania
Railroad company , is attracting consider
able attention , and is being criticised and
condemned by the legal journals , as well
as the public press of the country. It Is
conceded by the opinion of the court that
the ticket hold by Mr. Oonnoll was a
proper , valid ticket , and although purchased -
chased in this city from an agent oMho
Wasbash railway company was as bind
ing on the Pennsylvania railway com
pany , as though purchased nt the office of
the latter company. It u further admi
ted by the court , that the conductor | hai
no right to demand additional faro from
Mr. Oonnoll , but should have acccpto "
his ticket ; and that Mr. Oonnoll woul
have boon justified in refusing to pa ;
faro and in leaving the train. But it
hold , that notwithstanding all this , it was
Mr. Oonnoll's duty , when notlfio
by the conductor that ho would not receive
coivo the ticket , to pay his faro undo ;
protest , or leave the train , and sue th
company and recover for a broach of con
tract to carry , and that ho cannot su
and recover for damages sustained in con
sequence of the act of the conductor in
expelling him from the train. In otlic
words , according to the decision
of the supreme court of Illinois ,
a passenger holding a valid ticket , mus
pay faro asofton as demanded , and trust
to an action for the recovery of the money
wrongfully extorted. To hold this to bo
the law would amount practically to
denial of justice. The conductor on
every division from Now York to San
Francisco , upon making some trivial or
unfounded objection to the ticket of a
passenger , could compel such pas- !
longer to pay double faro , and the
passengers only roceurso would bo to sue
sach company between those remote
points , and recover for a broach of con
.wet. To BUppoDO that this would bo
lone in ono case out of fifty is absurd.
Dho traveling public would simply bo at the
norcyoftho railroads. It Is to bo regretted
hat a court so reputable and distinguished
or its able important decisions , as is the
Supreme Court of Illinois , should make
uch a departure from the rules of law
ind justice as is made on this question
> f passenger's rights.
It is stated by the editor of the Chicago
Lcrjnl JVeiw ) , that no cnso is to bo found
vhich pees to the extent of the decision
nado in Mr. Oonnoll'a case , and wo
igreo with the additional statement made
n that connection , that if there are any ,
'thoy should bo disregarded as announc-
ng bad law and a dangerous doctrine. "
't is a doctrine that places the travelling
mblic , not only at the mercy of warring
ailroad companies who dishonor the drafts
f their accredited agents , but exposes
ho patrons of the railroads to blackmail
nd brutal treatment from conductors.
Jndor this decision a venal conductor
lay blood passengers , who prefer to pay
wico rather than bo detained , and a
ap tious conductor may reject a ticket
rhich is perfectly regular and subject

IT Is an ill wlud that blows nobody
s ny good. The Denver Tribune already
sees In the noarfaturoa great rush of
people to Colorado to escape the cholera.
The best way to escape the cholera , fl y
that enterprising journal , is to floe to
the mountains of Colorado as cholera
has not boon known to exist in high
mountains , and this accounts for the
fact that a largo portion of the flying
French are taking refuge in the
Pyrenees. "Cholera has never
existed at as high an altitude
aa that of Denver , " says the Tribune ,
"but if it should como hero people
could keep ascending the mountains un
til they reached the region of perpetual
snow where the disease could no more
survive than in the Arctic sea. No place
in the civilized world is so well fortified
against the visits of the Asiatic destroy
er as Colorado. She is the safest refuge
that the panic-stricken people of the low
lands will bo able to find. "

Arctic regions en the 1st of Juno , was for
nearly four years employed in the general

to a lieutenancy in the Pawnee Scouts.

A IVAll BTOHY OF
How "Blnuk Knelt" Stoort V&\\\\ Oror
It was in the summar of 1805 , and the
irmy under Sherman had fallen back
Tom its position before Atlanta and
iwept nround to Hood's roar , General
[ jogan loading the advance , I remember
.lit ) country was densely wooded , and the
nagnilicout forests of nine , oak nnd
ihoetmit towered on either side of the
'o.id over which wo marched. Just aa
ro turned a bund in the road wo emerged
luUlonly into a ninnll clearing. A rude
ug cabin , surrounded by evergreen
hnibbory , flood in the clearing , and
lanuinu from onn of the bushes wo no-
iced a yellow cloth.
As mudicnl ollicera it naturally occurred
o us that this wan an Improvised hospit-
il of sumo sort , und wo rode up to in-
[ ulro. At the door of the cabin , as wo
ipproaohod , an old lady , evidently of the
amiliar "cracker" typo , presented her-
elf. She told us "thoro wa'n't no
rounded men thnr , " and when asked
rhy she had put out a yellow flag there ,
ho replied : "Wall , yor see , my gal Is
iok , and I reckoned of I pnt out that
iosp't'1 II ig yon'uns wouldn't bopestorin *
round so much , "
"What's the matter with you child ? "
aid I ; "wo are modtcal oflicors and per-
taps can do something for her. "
"Woll , now , " she quickly responded ,

ind so * what you'ans all done with yonr
htllln' . Time my gal was sickest , two

Wo aooeptod the old woman's InriU-

'ho cabin , built of rough pine logg , af-

By this time quito a number of oflicors
and men had gathered about the cabin.
Presently some ono suggested that the
baby ought to bo christened with full
military honors , and ii being duly explained -
plained to her that to "christen" was nil
the same as to "baptize , " she replied ,
with alacrity : "Oh , yeal baplizod. 1
reckon , If you'ns haa got any preacher
along. " ThU was all the boys wanted ,
and an orderly was at once sent back to
the general commanding , with .tho com-
pllmonta of the surgeon nnd a request
that a chaplain belonging to ono of .the
regiments in the advance brigade might
bo allowed to rrturn wllh the messenger
to the cabin. Upon this , General Logan ,
( for | ho It vr&s ) BlgniQcantly remarked
that the names mentioned [ were in them
selves sufliciont to satisfy him that some
deviltry was on hand , but thatr , never
theless , the chaplain mipht go. Then ,
inviting the colonel , who happened to bo
riding with him at the time , ho set ou'
himself for the scone , spurring "Oh
John" to a gallop , and soon had joinec
the party at the cabin.
"Gonoral , " said thn doctor , as th
former dismounted , "you are just tin
man wo'ro after. "
"For what ? "
"For a godfather , " replied the doc
The matter was explained to him , and
an the doctor led the way into the houoo ,
the boys whd had gathered around thi
General In the expectation that the oven
rrould furnish an occasion for a display o ,
hia characteristic humor , noticad there
wns something in Black Jack's face thn
they were not wont to ace there , ami
that in his eyes there was n cortnir
humid tondornosa far ditfrrent from tholi
usual flashing brightness. IIo stood for
i moment silent , gazing at the unhappy
tnothor and fatherless child , and thttir
pitiful surroundings , nnd then , relum
ing , to those about him , said torso-
"That looks rough. "
Then glancing around at the ruins
irrought by oar shells , and addressing
, ho men in the cabin , ho called out : "I
iayt boys , can't you stra'ghtcn this up a
ittlo ? Fix up that roof. There are
ilonty of 'stakes' around that old stable
and push back tha- log into place , and
lolp the old lady to clear out the litter ,
ind I don't think it'wo'uld hurt you any
.o leave a part of your rations ! "
Prompt to hood the suggestion , the
) oya loaned their muskets against the
ogsl aud , while some of them cut brush ,
ithors swept up the splinters and pine-
mots that the shot and shell had strewn
ivor the floor , and not ono of them forgot
o go to the corner of the cabin and empty

This done , the next thing in order was
ho christening , aud the chaplain now
amo forward to perform his sacred oflico.
"What are you going to give her for alamo

She was told that the name should bo
atisfactory , and' forthwith she brought
ut the baptismal bowl which on this
ccosiou consisted of a gourd full of
rater fresh from the spring. General
.loqan now took the baby , wrapped In its

In the fall of 1870 , Bon Butler traveled
hrough the Wont and made a few politi-
al speeches. Mr. Hondricks , hearing of
leu's advent , told the people at a public
nooting to look out for their spoons.
thereupon , Old Bon took the next tram

The growth of Omaha for several years
past baa boon north nnd south of its bus *
iness centres , instead of to the west. The
reason for this haa boon the Inaccessibili
ty of the east and nest streets , bui
through the efforts of enterprising citi
zens and the Oily Council , our city la to
liavo advantages thia aoaaon of the follow
ing graded atrootu : West to the city
limits , Farnnm , Dodge , Davenport , Cali
fornia and Cuming. Farnam will load as
the great business nnd residence thor
oughfare of the city : Cuming street will
probably occupy second place and the intermediate -
tormodiato atroots of Dodge , Davenport
and California will open up , perfect and
establish some of the finest residence lo- . _ ,
calitics thnt Omaha will ever havo. Aa v
soon as the splendid grade on Farnam
street is completed , etrcot cars will run
on n double track to the city limits ; at
thccaamo time Cuming street trill have
cars. A 'connection between the.se two
lines will become n necessity. Men , who
ought to know , aay it trill bo on 28th
street , which Is the anmo aa Line street ,
on Gaming , and open now to Farnam
and beyond to the Park. It ii confident
ly suggested that the Park avenue line
will bo continued west on Loavonworth
street to Colfax , then duo north along
28th to Cuming stroot. The ground along
this line and especially between Farnam
and Cuming streets , will bo ono of the lo
calities of the finest residences in the
city. Foremost among the lands in thia
locality for desirability for residences are
Hillside Additions , Noa. 1 , 2 and 3 ,
owned by A. E. Touzalin , These addi
tions were put on the market Juno 7th , .
within thirty days following lota were
sold to the amount of ever $42,000 to
VERY DESIRABLE parties , who , in nearly
every case , will erect residences varying
in value from § 2,500 to $30,000.
These lots are but six blocks west of
the High School , their natural advanta
ges are all that can bo doaircd , being ele
vated , sightly and healthful in location ,
with many of them already covered with
fine groves of forest trees. These con
siderations combined make them the best
and cheapest lota for the erection of elegant -
gant homes that are now offered for sale. < ,
To parties who will build within ono year V
very eaay terms will bo given. *
POTTER & COBB nre exclusive
agents for thia property , and will toke
pleaanre In showing it or giving any in
formation concerning the additions. Call
at their oflico , 1515 Farnam street.
Another Addition that is destined to
become very valuable property , ia Pot
ter's addition. It occupies n very desir
able location , commanding a fine view of
the surrounding country , t the inter
section of Lowe avenue and Farnam
street. 3 Lowe avenue will , without ques
tion , in a year or two , become the con
necting line of the Farnam and Cnmintr
street oar systems. The proposed line of
the Bolt railway is only ono block west of
thia addition. With the completion of
Farnam street grade and perfection of
street car accommodations , these lots will
easily double in value.
They are now for sulo nt the low figure
of § 400 to $500 per lor , on very easy
terms. Inquire at 11315 Farnam street
for further information.
