WALL street is having a season of ro-
peso. Last week was the dullest of the
year in stock speculation , and the cur

promise of improvement. Brokers ex
press inability to account for this state
ofall'airs , but perhaps ono reason is in
the fact that the street has not for many
years boon so deficient in great opera
tors ns it is nt present. At the same
time reports regarding the movement
in mercantile trade are exceedingly sat
isfactory botli from Now York and other
eastern trade centers. So far as llie
legitimate business of the country is con
cerned , the outlook for the autumn and
winter is regarded as very favorable.
Vnn AVyok'R Double Tay.
The terrible cannonade to wliloh Sen
ator Van Wyck has been subjected since
ho has tii'iiti' his uppcal to Iho people of
Nebraska liai heeii mrrely n discharge
of blank cartridges. Tlicro have been
noisy explosions of powder ami great
floiil ( < < of smoke , but. the senatorial tar-
gel shows no visible clloets of the licrco
! is auH. The charges which liavo been
hurled against the senator do not alVuet
his lldclit.v to the intomsts of the state.
Nobody ' has dared to charge him
with neglect of duly or willful defiance
of the known wishes of his constItiionts.
Nobody , not oven Iho moU malignant
cni'iny , lias ever cluirgeil him with cor
ruption as a legislator , or with making
iisi' of Ills position to feather his no-it.
Nobody dares to assort that Van Wvck
lias betrayed the trusts reposed in him
by thn men who elected him and by the
people whom he has represented with
fiiuili signal abilitj in tlio national legis
Tlio only grave charge brought against
Senator Van Wyck by his oppon
ents is thai during tlio war liu
drew double pay as member of congress
and colonel in the army. The charge
has no bearing whatever upon tlio con
duct of Oeneral Van Wyck as senator
from Nebraska. It can scarcely lie con
sidered as an elleetivo argument to pre
vent his re-election. But it may as well
be discussed in all seriousness to show t" >
what desperate and contemptible moans
the monopoly press will resort in order
to crealo prejudice and throw discredit
upon Senator Van Wyck ova , public man.
Tlio senator has not seen lit to deny that
during the war ho served In
the double capacity of congressman
and commander of : i regiment. Ho has
not seen lit to deny that ho drew double
pay during one. session of congress. This
may bo a most terrible oll'ensc in the eyes
of his tradueers , many of whom lought
the battles of the country gallantly
among the homo guards. Van Wyck
was by no means the only man who held
a commission in the army and served in
congress at the same tlmo. At
the outbreak of the war Senator
Spruguo , of llhodo 'Island , was made
a major-general and served in the
army between sessions of congress.
General Garlield was elected to congress
wlulo he hold a commission in the army.
While we cannot say positively that ho
drew double pay during a portion of his
term , wo have very little doubt that ho
did. If wo are correctly informed Gen
eral Amasa Cobb was olcclud from Wis
consin while he held a commission. .In
all probability ho served in the same con
gress with Van Wyck , and ten chances
to ono drew double pay for a few months.
The fact is that the fire in the roar by Iho
copperheads and rebel sympathizers
of the north made il imporalivo for
the safety of the. republic to
plac < loyal men of known ability and
firmness in congress during that very
critical period. These men reluctantly
left their commands in the army for n
season when congress was m session and
returned to the front the moment their
congressional serviceswcroondcd. Inas
much as the pay of congressmen was
fixed by the year , members who served
in the army in the summer months , whan
lighting was most iiclivo , took thoirleavo
during the winter , but were retained on
the army pay roll until mustered out.
In the case of Senator Van Wyck the
meanness of the assault appears more
despicable when it is borne in mind that
ho organized and equipped at his own ex
pense a fifteen company regiment known
as the Tenth Legion , and paid for their
transportation to the front. Inasmuch
as he has never been reimbursed for this
outlay , the paltry pay of a colonel for
throe or four months while congress was
in session is hardly worth notice Qif it
wore not for the great hue and cry that
has been raised about it.
The "Actual 1'nirt" Fraud.
The Sunday Herald appeared with the
following cards at Us head : "Tho largest
actual iiaid circulation of any paper bo-
Iwcon Chicago and San Francisco , " and
"Double the actual paid circulation of
any paper published in Nebraska. "
Now what docs the llcnild mean by
"actual paid circulation " ? Will its pub
lishers please explain , or stop its bra/en
imposture ? ] ) oes "actual paid circula
tion " mean a gilt-edged list of extra-
select subscribers ? How dare they claim
a larger circulation than any paper be
tween Chicago and San Francisco when
they know that Kansas City. St. Paul and
Minneapolis papers circulate all the way
from 13,000 to 18,000 daily , as against less
than 4,000 of tlio Herald's bona fide daily
circulation ? What right has the Herald
to lay claim to double the circulation
of any paper in Nebraska ,
when it knows that the HKB
has an actual paid circulation
ofovnr 13,000 daily. If the Herald's
claim wore true , it would circulate over
35,000 , papers n day , which every intelli
gent person knows to bo an outrageous
falsehood. The "actual paid" catch ,
which the Herald lias invented to impose
upon advertisers Is a very clumsy device.
What docs "actual paid" mean ? The
JJBK receives pay every Saturday lor
about 45,000 , papers sold during the week
of seven days to its lessees of circulation
in Omaha and Council BluIVs , Is this
"actual paid" circulation , or is it to bo
regarded as delivered on trust ?
The BKK sells through dealers in Iowa
and Nebraska fully three thousand
dailies , which are paid for at the end ol
each month. Is this "actual paid" circu
lation , or is it a give-away on the inflation
system of the Herald manager , who al
lows dealers to return or keep stacks ol
unsold papers which ho sends out tc
make a bogus showing ?
The remainder of our daily circulation
is in part prepaid , and in part collected
from tlmo to time by agents. This is true
of all other Nebraska dailies. Where
then does "actual "
paid" come in ?
Hut the Herald pompously proclaims
that it has double "tho actual paid circu
lation of any paper in Nebraska , '
Whore is il ? In Omaha its actual circu
lation is a fraction over 600 by carrioi
and less than 1,200 , all told , In other
words , its circulation In Omaha is nboul
the same as the circulation of the Br.K in
Council Ulufla. The rcgularsubscription
of the Bir : in Omaha , supplied by CHrrici
delivery , is now over 4,700 , , This docs not
include papers delivered to dealers , Hut
the Herald with about one-fifth
of this circulation has the audacity Ui
advertise its circulation as double that
of any paper pubjlshed lu Nebraska. II
this imposture only deceived Its sub
scribers it would make liltlo diUbronce ,
Inlt itfiiiialn object iato swindle the credu
lous eastern advertiser , who has not the
means to ascertain the truth. If this
fraud is not stopped we shall talk a little
more plainly , and exhibit the methods by
which tlio llorald is trying lo obtain
money under falio pretenses.
Tlio Situation.
Ilttinr is still comparatively quiet in
some branches but the conditions are
ripe for improvement , and the indica
tions are everywhere nior-i oiH-wuraging
for a prosperous fall and winter trade
than they have been at the outset of sev
eral preceding seasons. Merchants and
inanufuelurorrt are correspondingly
cheerful and hope-fill. The jobbing dis
tribution of manufactured goods is fairly
active , and in many lines shows an im
provement over the business of last
week. In nearly till departments the
contrast with the condition of trade at
this time last year is very favorable. The
siness t'ailure.s occurring throughout
thu country last week number 201 , as
against ISli the previous week and 107
the week before. The increase is mainly
in Canada. Failures in the eastern ,
Southern and Miildlo states continue
Cotton prices have been depressed by
Iho political uneasiness in Huropo ami by
unfavorable market news from Liverpool ,
mid as compared with a week ngo are
1-1U to i of a cent per pound lower. The
crop year i.s drawing to its close , and
business is done on a moderate scale both
for homo eonsiimntlon and export. The
generally accepted estimate of the prob
able outturn of this year's crop is (1,500- (
000 bales. The trade in cotton goods is
morn active in jobbing dcparlmouts and
fair at llrot hands. Demand is absorbing
the production of desirable fabrics , and a
good many orders are on the mill books
for future delivery. Tlio market , there
fore , is in excellent shape and firm.
Wool has been shaded slightly in price
in exceptional instances. Tlioro arc a
good many buyers canvassing the mark
ets , and largo lines could be moved at
concessions , but business nt current
market rates is quiet. Manufacturing
clothiers are having a good trade in
heavy goods , and are giving only moder
ate attention to spring weights , but or
ders are fairly satisfactory forthuseason ,
and indications point to a good fall trade.
Other branches of the woolen-goods
trade arc fairly active , and values in till
lines are very firm. Increased activity
is noted in tlio jobbing trade in dry goods
in leading markets throughout the coun
try. The anthracite coal trade shows an
improving tendency.
Kxporl business in wheat has boon much
less active the past week. Clearances
have continued liberal because a largo
amount , of the grain had been previously
sold for August shipment ; but thvro has
been a lull in thn latter demand from
foreign buyers. The partial halt in ex
port buying , large receipts at winter
wheat centers and an increasing move
ment of spring wheat from the north
west , have promoted a more bearish
feeling in speculative circles , but jts
ell'oct has been measurably oil'set by the
political news from Europe. The drift
of values , with occasional interruptions
duo to the foreign war talk , has been
downward. The corn crop outlook has
boon slightly improved in some localities
by recent rains , but tlio week's reports do
not indicate any material change in the
general situation. Kxport demand for
corn is light.
The Grand Army Hcunion.
Nebraska is pre-eminently a soldier
state. Nearly every regiment that served
in the armies of the union has a score or
more of representatives in the Grand
Army organisation of Nebraska. Tlio
eighth annual reunion of the veterans is
now in camp at Grand Island. Extensive
preparations have been made by the of
ficers of tlio Grand Army and the citizens
of Grand Island to make this reunion a
memorable event. The attendance prom
ises to bo greater than that of any pre
vious assemblage of the boys in blue in
Nebraska. As the years roll by these
gatherings of the gallant defenders of
the union become more and more
interesting and impressive. They recall
memories of patriotism , valor and priva
tion of the most critical era in Iho history
of tlio republic. They recall vividly to
the present generation the debt of grati
tude which the nation owes to tlio men
of 1801-03. Nebraska , although a terri
tory with less than ! l."i,000 population at
the bioaking out of the civil war , fur
nished her full quota of volunteers to the
union armies , and many of these
veterans , now assembled at Grand Island ,
served gallantly through the entire war.
TIIBIIB Is no UFO for ward bummers

ture to sell their votes.

ir Alexander Adieu.
Clitraon HcniM.
Whan in 1878 Disraeli returned from
Berlin with the island of Cyprus in his
pocket , and the cry ot "peace with
honor" on his lips , Bulgaria , which had
been a bono of contention in tlio much
vexed eastern question , was constituted
an autonomous and tributary principality
under Iho su/.eranity of his imperial
majesty , the sultan. IL was ordered also
in the same treaty that it should have a
Christian government and a national
militia. Bulgaria had been one of the
European states of Turkey. Nearly
three-fourths of ils population , scant two
million , belonged to Ihc Greek church.
The Turkish tax farmers perpetrated
terrible outrages on the people , and the
province was in a continual condition of
revolt. The treaty of Berlin gave its
first attention to the alTaiis of the people.
Il provided , after fixing the status of the
principality , that the prince should bo
freely elected bv the people and confirmed
by the sublime portc with the consent of
the powers. The population chose
Alexander , who is a cousin of the reign
ing grand duke of Hesse , who married
the Princess Alice , daughter of Queen
Victoria , and a brother of the Ludwig to
whom the Princess Beatrice was recently
wedded. The election occurred in 187B ,
and was entirely unanimous. In 1880 ,
with equally apparent unanimity , ( he
young man is escorted to the fnintier ,
having been quietly deprived of his gov
ernment , his palace at Sofia , and his
$100,000 a year that were given him for
prince playing. Save that there was
trouble with Servia recently , the reign of
Alexander has been peaceful enough ,
but Hut population of the prineipamy
have religious reasons for profering the
rule of Kussiu , and will probably noyer
bo content while i.ormnlly a dependence
of thu sultan. UIISSKUI partisanship has
been strongly expressed in Bulgaria , but
Russian authority cannot bo exerted in
the country without the assent of the
European powers that wore parties to
the treaty of Berlin which terminated the
war of 1877 between Russia and Turkey.
Plenty of work tor the cabinets of Eu
rope will grow out of tlio present compli
cation , but the bayonet factories will
probably not bo disturbed until , break
ing through ail parchment bonds. Russia
will drive the Turk from Constantinople.
Denial of ( In ) Story that Her Dentil
Resulted Prom a Hovel.
Denver Tribune-Republican : A queer
little llguro with u very short waist. A
bond covered with dark hair set squarely
on a pair of shoulder.- ! without the inter
vention of any nook to sneak of. The
oddest of palo-bluo calico drosMis. worn
with a short shoulder capo of black cashmere -
mere , a white mull kerchief , nnd a long ,
white apron. This is how she appears
Mrs , Leon , the Scottish waiting woman
now in employ of Mine. Modjcska , and
once maid to the great Ncilson. Thin is
how she looks a dumpy liguro in quaint
attire , looking as If she belonged to a by
gone century , and speaking very gram-
miitlcally in a quiet , easy fashion , which
shows * hu is used to being iiboul Iho
"You want to talk to me about Almo.
Noiisanr1 she said. "Well , I like to talk
of her because I love her. and because she
was one of the loveliest and
hearted women who ever lived. Indeed ,
] cannot describe to yuti her lovely dis
position. She was remarkably oven *
tempered and never gave way to angry
expressions as so many ladies do. Natur
ally things did not always go to suit her ,
anil she was not always pieo-sod , but she
had a gentle way of remonstrating that
never engendered bitterness or angkT. "
"Wore you with her when she died ? "
"O ! yes , indeed , and a very sad death
it was in that little Parisian ohalet with
only nor nearest friends about her , No'l- '
sou died the Mill of Augtisl just six years
ago. You see , it was this way : she had
long been ill at times , 'her trouble being
situated in the blood vessels , but she was
quite well when she set out to dnvo with
two or three friends that afternoon , in
tending to leave Paris for Switzerland at
night. I staved at homn to get all bur
things in I'oadincss for Iho journey , and
was greatly startled at being ? enl for
Iato in the afternoon to goto Mmo. Noil-
son , who was dying at the chalet. The
reason of her death was very feimplo a
blood vessel which had worn to an ex
tremo dopron of thinnos , nnd suddenly
broke. Then lifo could bo sustained no
longer , and poor madnino died.
' Dlryes.l know nil about those1 storing

but I assure you they arc tlio base-Hfabri
cations. Then1 is no truth in them what
ever. 1 liavo reason to know tlnit she had
not drank a drop of wine that day , ami
that slin never drank to eseess , beingri
temperate woman in all things. DM tin-
way to thn chttlol 1 know the party
slopped at a dairv and had some milk , but
I am convinced tnatthomllk was not iced.
It is ( pillu probable that It was juM fresh
from the cow. They Uc very mile iced
milk in l-'nuice. And the pally was u
very small ono and a very mnel one in
every respect. 1 am positive Mint" . Noil-
son bad had no wine that day.
"No , 1 tin not think she allowed her mi-
fortunate marriage to make her unhappy.
Sins bail youth , beauty , luxuryeven love ,
and she had a happy faculty of making
the best of things. Shu had a habit of
making her will every time she. sol out
upon a long journey , and the last otto she
made , in which slui bennentlied the bulk
of her fortnnt ! to Mr. Nlynn , was , I am
sure , more of u whim than anything ol o ,
as she had never eared for" him. Ho
wanted lo marry her , and she respected
him. That was all there ever was
between them. At Hit ; lime she made her
will in his favor , ho madoa will in her.s-
an oven exchange , yon ceo , possibly moiv
in jest than in earnest. She willed me
her wardrobe , which I sold for $8,000. ,
She said sonic time before her death that
if she had a successful season that year
.she would have given me a pension. 1
wish she had done .so. I tun getting old ,
and the work of dressing a great actress
is no easy task.
"Mine. NeiNon was very easy to dress ,
because she played mostly in Slinks-
pearean drama , where the itressos are
very simple , and are seldom changed.
1 never saw her look lovelier than she did
the day she died. She wore a simple
white dre > s and looked so sweet and
ohariiiing as she stopped into her car
riage. Poor Mmo. Neilsonl She has
gone to n better world. "

San Diuiro ( Cal.Suu ) : Miss Altie Tul-
lanl , ii beautiful and accomplished young
lady , is the daughter of Mrs. Tallinn ,
landlady of the hotel at Knoinilas. She
has a luntl claim about a mile .south of
Enemitas , on the line of thn California
Southern railroad. Last Saturday a
spark from a passing locomotive
.set lire to the dead grass
and threatened Iho destruction of
her house and conlents. She look some
giinnytmcks. , soaked diem in water , and
blurted for the lire. After a determined
light Iho flames were subdued and the
house saved. On her way back , in pass
ing near a pile of railroad ties , she came
near stepping upon a large rattlesnake
lying beside them , almost hidden from
view , but ready to strike the first person
that might happen along. Sieving a

slept in her cabin , n full mile from any

Sunday morning , "smiling and looking
as f rt-sh as : : i peach , " apparently none
Iho worse for the experience of Iho pre
vious day.

boon known to exert an injurious effect
on the eyesight , but a recent case in
Sweden illustrates this reflection in an
unusually striking manner. The patient
was a ounggirl blind in Iho right eye ,
although the surgeon. Dr. Widmark , was
unable lo detect the pathologi
cal change in tlio organ. Observing ,
however , considerable defecis in the
teeth ho scut her to M. Skog.horg , a
dental surgeon , who found that all the
upper and lower molars were completely
decoyed , and 'hut in many of them tin ;
roots were inflamed. llu extracted
the remains of the molars on the right
side ami in four days' time the sight of
tlio right eye began to return , and on the
eleventh day after the extraction of the

deceased fangs on the other side wore
subsequently removed , lest they should
cause a return of the ophtlmlminio

Messrs. O'Connor & Rufur , of Iho Mis

was made in the testimony before the
coroner's inquest. Tlio impression was
conveyed that Rufur , the brakeman , tes
tified that O'Connor , the conductor , had
been drinking and that his breath smoluil
of whisky. Rufur domes t hat ho testified
to this statement. O'Connor says that
