to the Hni.J : When Lord Lonsdalc called at
tlio Hoffman house to see \ lolct Cameron
jestciday afternoon , he Mas told that KiUvaul
S. Stokes , proprietor ot the hotel , wished to
ECO him on business of Importance. Mr.
Stokes said , on meeting Lord Lonsdalo ,
that lioliait a\ury unpleasant duty to per
form , Ho had read In the newspapers that
there had been more or less talk about Lord
Lonsdalo'.s connection with the Violet Cam-
eion operacompany , nnd this had been stim
ulated Into unusual activity by the arrival
in this country of tlio persons most dhectly
concerned In It. Under the circumstances ho
felt compelled to suggest to Loid
Lonsdnlo that another hotel bo found
lor Miss Cameion. Miss Cameron was
very shortly removed to Hotel
Mndlbon at Thirty-ninth street and Uroad-
Mny. Last e\enlng Mi. Stokes said when ho
read the papeis the old stories conceinlng
Lord Lonsilaloaiid Miss Cameron ramo bnck
to him , and he determined In justice to the
guests of his hotel ho would be com-
pulled to ask Miss Cameron to get accommo
dations eKcMheio. He told Lord Lonsdnlo
liu was running a famll } hotel and was com
pelled to piotcct his house from any breath
of scandal that might Ilnd its way Into It ,
and to consider the comfoit and welfare ot
his guests bi-foie anything else. Lord Lous-
dale assured him his relations with Miss
Cameron were purely of u business charac
ter. Mr.Stokcsthen talked with Miss Cameron
about It , Shu was much disturbed but madu
no protest against Stokes' decision. Lord
Lonsdale , who moved fiom Delmnnlco's to
hotel Madison at tlio saint ) time that Miss
Cameion moved from the Hollman house ,
Bald that Mr. Stokes Imd known about the
stories about Miss Cameron moio than two
xsoek.s ngo Mhen the rooms Mere enir.i. . 1.
Nothing had been concealed fiom him. . . (
Lonsdnlo also said that although ho did not
wish to make harsh criticism , he yet thought
tluit Miss Cameron was unfairly treated , lie
sympathised with her to the extent that he
gave tip Dehuonlco's so as to bo near her.

111 1803 Captain Hiehanl Cluvulnud , of
Salem , took to the Sandwich islands scv-
oral horses , an event thus rouoreled in his
life by his son , just published by the Har
pers :
Touching at Capo St. Lucas , where
they purchased "another pretty mare
with foal , " for winch they paid in poods
which cost in Eurojio ono and a half dollars
lars , they took their departure on the
Mill of May , and arrived at Karakaroa
bay , Sandwich islands , on the 21st of
of Juno. They found it was the bouson
of a periodical taboo , during which no
canoes were alloweel to stir ; but the next
day John I'ounp came on board and told
them that the king was at Mowee.
Young was very desirous of having ono
of the horsesand , thinking that the wrob-
ability ol their increase would be better
secureit by leaving them in diflorent
Elaces , they next day moved to Tooagah
ay , near Young's residence , and landed
the mare , of which ho took charge. This
was the hrst horse ever seen in Owyhue ,
and naturally excited great astonishment
among the natives.
From hero they went to Mowooand
wore- first boarded by Isaac Davis , who ,
with John Young , comprised at tlio time
the European population of the islands.
Soon after a large double canoe came
oil' , from which a powerfully built , ath
letic man. nearly naked , came on board ,
and was introduced byDnvis as Tamaah-
maah , the great king His reception of
them was not such aa they hail antici
pated , nor could they ' account for his ap
parent coolness aml'lack of interest ex
cept on the supposition that it was mere
ailectation. Ho took only a careless look
at the horses , and returned to the shore
without expressing any curiosity about
them. His subjects , however were not
restrained by any desire to appear uncon
cerned. The ncM's of the arrival of the
wonderful animals spread rapidly , the
decks wore crowded with visitors , and
next day , when they were landed , a great
multitude had assembled , evidently with
no definite conception of any use that
could bo made of them. As might bo ex
pected from people who had never scon
a larger animal than u pier , they wore at
first afraid to approacli them , and their
anm/.oment reached its climax when ono
of the sailors mounted the back of one of
them and galloped up ami down , upon the
beach. They were greatly alarmed at
first for the safety of the rider , but when
they saw how completely lie controlled
the animal , and how submissively and
quietly the latter exerted his powers in
obedience to his will , they socmnd to
have a dawning conception of the value
of such a possession nnd rent the air
with bhoiits of admiration.
Hie king , hoM'ovor could not bo be
trayed into any expression of wonder or
surprise , and , although ho expressed his
thanks when told they wore intended as
a present to himself , he only remarked
that he could hot pcicoivo that their abil
ity to carry u man quickly from ono
price to another Mould bo a sullieient
compensation for the great amount of
fooil they would necessarily require ,

The t'nie > n Pacific railroad engineers
nro .surveying u line of road from Albion
in Roomi county to Niobrara , this county.
The line runs about twe'lvo miles west of
Creighton down tlio Verdegrls creek , but
no one knows when it w'll ' bo built.
Rumor says the Northwestern has inter
cepted them , and are grading on the
Union Pacific's surveyed line between
Albion anel Neligh.
Omaha needs a direct line into north
ern Nebraska as most of our proelucu and
steiok goes direct to Chicago , and our
merchants buy most of their goods from
Chicago , the Northwestern giving better
rates than to Omaha.
Wo need more railroads in this part of
the state. Wo have no competition , and
are compelled to pay the enormous rates
of the Northwestern. It is hoped the
next legislature will do something in re
gard to railroad rates , if tlio roads don't
buy the legislature.
"The ailgluy Deillnr. "
The mighty dollar has enjoyed a con
siderably longer lease of life than is usu
ally vouchsafed to creations of a like
superficiality of construction. It is the
offspring of one Wolto , of Boston , ami
fostered by Mr. and Airs. Florence. It
has hold its OM-II through twelve years of
thoatiical uncertainty , time only serving
to tighten its grip on the popular favor.
Outside of its lack of plot the play is
clover enough us a satire on well known
types of American eccentricities e > f the
vulgar sort. The two leading characters
are drawn with boldness anel strength
and fit the principals to perfection. Wo
have all encountered such types and recognize -
cognize their likeness with a hope
that their counterfeit represen
tatives may render a lession to
the originals that will tend to diminish
their number in society. Mr. Florence
was intelligent anel tnorough , as lie is in
everything. His characterization of the
lion. Slote is a delightful piece of art in
its finish and mabtory of minute elotail.
From his baggy , Puritan looking best
clothes anel undo Sam collar to the up
lifting of his eyebrows or the good
humored trickery of his glance , ho is
every inch the inflated , spread-eagle pol
itician \vlio makes a nuisance of himself
by his proclivity for mounting the stump
and proclaiming in windy grandilo
quence tlie patriotic effervescence of his
Ilbu/.iium " M-lule ho
/ , privately is willing
to lend himself to any scheme that M-iU
enrich him bj- fair or dishonest means at
the expense of the government.
Mrs. Florence is an actress of more
method and polish than a casual observer
is capable ot appreciating to the tallest
extent. Her voice is identical with her
self , mezzo in pitch , and full of pleasing
inflections that convey to the utmost the
bignilicanco of her lines. Her gestures
are less demonstrative than expressive ,
am } her action while never dragging , is
deliberate , anel as natural as tnough the
result of a spontaneous impulse. As
Mrs. General Gdlllory she was convuls
ing with her amusing mannerisms nnd
confusing smattering of art and French ,
and vaguu idea of geography. She gave
an excellent portrait of the shodelj
American woman of fashion , whoso
European tour seems to have been too
much for hershallow brain.
The balance of the company were capa
ble in their respective parts , the love

Mrs. Florence was attired with
her usual taste and magnifi

wears a pretty out-door costume of deep

with pink and trimmed with shaded tips.
She carries a white satin parisol. A cos
