'I ho most extensive improvement of
Hie year fop Lincoln from the hnndc of
the municipnlity Itself is the srwrrajjo
stciii , now well nmler way in its con
struction. It is the nlin tn * the poniipil ,
the engineer in charge , and tlio con
tractor to have six miles of mains laid
before severe wlnler weather causes the
work to cease , and ns a great deal of
complaint was heard that the work was
progressing too slowly to accomplish this
a little inquiry was made.
It was during thn last days of August ,
paid Councilman Dean , when the coir
tract was entered into , and that was the
first opportunity that tlio contractor had
in which to branch out in ( he purchn c o (
material. A visit to St. Louis and Alon-
niouth , 111. , was made , and it
was found that sewerage pipe
was a scarce article in the
inarket--so scarce , in fact , that all that
could be obtained had to bo manufac
tured alter it was contracted for. In tills
ilcin alone , said Mr. Dean , isthn explana
tion for the greater part of the delay oc
casioned , and the material i.s only arriv
ing now as fast as the present force of
men can lay it. It will take for the six
miles of mains r.nil laterals over one hun
dred cars of material , and as the order
was not made until some thirty days ago ,
after which it had to be manufactured ,
tlio parties interested consider that excel
lent progress is being made. During the
past two weeks the conlr.ictor has had
some seventy men at work , and thov are
averaging about one hundred and'lifty
feet of the large mains daily.
Tins work lias been done in
the part of the city where
the most dillicult ground to cross lies-
thai i.s , over and through die bottoms
where tlio II. & M. tracks run , and in
laying one of principal mains , from
Ninth street west on P , forty railroad
tracks have had to lie tunneled under and
kept braced for the moving of trains
over them during the time. Water and
quicksand have also played havoc with
the won ; in many places , rendering it
both tedious and expensive. However ,
the worst part the contractor feels cer
tain is past , and ho has commenced with
a force of workmen on Thirteenth street ,
iiiul iu the coming week contemplates
adding to the force until 200 men arc cm-
Inquiry from member * of the coun
cil and those who are taking
uctivo interest in the work elic
its tlio response to the query
as to the character of the work done anil
the quality of the material UMM ! , that nil
is first class , and that the engineers who
have been inspecting have boon very
strict in throwing out all but the host
material. Mr. Tyler has boon appointed
by Mayor Hnrr as sewer inspector , and
in addition the engineers in chariro of
the work propose to themselves furnish
an inspector free of expense to assist in
the work.
"I think , " said Councilman Dean , at
the close of an interview , "that if tlio
people who complain would understand
the facts in the ease that they would
rcali/.o that the contract i.s in the hands
of an excellent man who is doing first
class work in every respect , and who is
pu.-hing it so that no apprehension rtced
li ! felt hut thntthosi.x miles contemplated
this season will bo completed. "

The Knights of Labor and trades as
semblies of the city hcl'd a private caucus
or convention Thursday night to select
two candidates to nlaoe in the vacant
places left by the democrats at the tune
ol their nominations. Tlie labor organ
isations seem to have made excellent se

They have selected .Joseph Hums
for the semite and Henry Schaal
for the house. Air. Hums is a p'ump ami
well man of Lincoln , who bears an ex
cellent name anionir his fellow men ,
and whoso selection for the
place was predicted some time
since. Henry Schaal is a printer in the
otlice of the Staats Anzcigcr , and is re
puted a man of intelligence , Two va
cancies yet remain in the ticket to be
filled , both vacancies being for members
of tlu : house.
A man from Monmoiith , ill. , appeared

route to Mindcn , Kearney county , to visit
it a brother living there , "anil he
slopped oil' at Lincoln to
see the city. He had $03 in Ids
pocket and "Wednesday he fell in with a
party , well known in police court , named
Jack Itronnan , who lured a rig and took
tlio Monmoiith man for a ride over the
city. They drank some , but the stranger
was positive that he had not taken more
than three drinks anyway. The next that
he can remember he woke up borne three
miles from Lincoln in the woods in the
night and minus his $ i > 5. He remem
bered riding with Hrennan in tlie city.

The Century : As nearly as could b
judged , I was more than a mile high , ami
all sounds from the earth had ceased ,
There was a death-like silence , which was
simply awtul. It scorned to my over
strained nerves to forbodo disaster. The
ticking of tlio watch in my pocket sound
ed like a trip hammer. Icouldfcol tlie
blood as it shot through the veins of my
head and arms. My straw hat
and willow car snapped and cracked ,
lining contracted by the evapora
tion of the moisture in them by the fast
cooling temperature. . I was compelled
to breathe a little quicker than usual on
account of the rarity of the atmosphere. .
I became sensible of a loud , monotonous
hum in my cars , pitched about on middle
C of the piano , which seemed to born
into my head trom each side , meeting in
the center with a pop ; then for an in
stant my head would bo clear , when thu
same experiment would be repeated.

closer , large ( Irons of ram could be seen ,

what they fondly fancied \va < eonver.-n-

"There's a gctilli-niin : down tnr ; who

card back to the boy and said :
"Tell him \ve don't rceogm/n country

wants to jo in. ' '
The boy hurried away , and in a few
minute.returned. .
"Me says , " declared the boy , "that ho
doesn't want to go in. He's seen the
show on tin ; road , and it's the worst in
the world. "
"Oreat Scott ! " exclaimed Mr. linker.
"Ho is not an idiot , anyhow , " said the
lean man.
"Mot much , Smith. What does ho
want ? "
"Well , sir , " said tlio boy , striving m
vain to repress a smile , "lie said ho
wanted to see yon on business thai might
prove to be of great importance to yon. "
"Show him up and let us sue what sort

manager and his .stage ; manager , sat in

well , intelligent-looking man.

manager whistled. The stranger paused
in astonishment. The manairer turned
and lookoil him over from head to foot.
"You seem to be quite sane , " he said.
"Do you think your play is a good
'i don't know. I hope it is , but I am
not a good judge of my own work , t
want the opinion ot'somo one like you
who known a good play when lie sees it. "
Managers are human , and this delicate
stroke of ( lattery had its weight. Mr.
linker spoke a little more kindly.
"Have yon any means of earning a liv
ing without writing plays'1" ;
"Oh , yes ; I do literary work , which
pays me well. "
"You're a literary man , eh ? That's
bad ; literary men can't usually writegood
plays. How many acts are there in your
piece ? * '
"Three , sir. "
"Tell mo the plot of the drama ,
please. "
The literary man sat down and in con
cise language detailed his story. It was
a strong plot , founded on human char
acter , anil interesting oven in skeleton
form. The manager .shook his head du
"I'm afraid it will not do. Kead mo

"Well , good night , " said the stage
manager , rising.
"Sluy a little while , Smith. I want
you to hear this act , ' * said the manager.
Smith heaved a heavy sigh , and nank
into his chair again. The literary man ,
looking a trillo nervous , opened his ninn-
iincripi and began to read the second
act. licfore he hail gone half way it was
plain that lie know but little about the
technicalities of the stage eyept as they
can be learned from the auditorium ; but
his work had nn < | itc.iiionablo merit , and
tlio manager saw at once that with slight
alteration it , would make a beautiful
play. The author road to the. end of the
act , and then closing his book looked in
quiringly at tlio manager. That digni-
tai.y shook his head.
"It'll never do at all , my boy. "
"I am sorry , sir , " was all tlio literary
man could say , as ho reached for his hat.
"Don't bo in " said the
a hurry , man
ager ; " 1 want to say a few words to you.
1 don't send men away with a play with
out giving them a reason. You probably
wonder that I have come to a decision so
speedily , do you not ? "
"Wcfl , yes. sir ; I do. "
"My friend , that is a bnauliful play. If
the third not is as good as the second
and 1 judge from your sketch of the in
cidents that it is it is one of the inoit
ruliued , delicate , genuinely poetic plays
1 have ran across ; but it'll never do.1'
" 1 don't understand. "
"Of course you don't. Lot mo illus
trate. Not a great while ago I stood in
the lobby of the Madison Square theatre
at the conclusion of a performance of

formance , wo listened to their comments
us they went out. I suppose yon know
Gilbert's Itrokun Hearts. ' "
"Oh , yos. "
"It's one of the most delicate and po-
etio thingo ever written for the .stage- , "
continued the manager. "Well , the peo-
idc as they wont out said : 'What rub
bish ! Why on earth do they plav such
things as that ? Why don't they give us
s-omething lively ? I'd rathur see "The
Tourists in a i'lillnian Palace Car" any

to mo and said : 'That's the sort of pub
lic gratitude I get for producing this plav.
The critics of the press will praise , but
no oae oUc will. And the public will bo
bored fey it.1 Now , my friend , that's
just what will happen to your play if it is
over produced. It's altogether too good
for the public taste , if it were a horse
play tarco like 'A Tin Soldier' 'A Hag
baby , ' it would make you a barrel of
money. "
"Hut I can't write that sort of thing , "
protested the literary man.
"I know you can't. " said the manager ,
"nor can 1 afford to produce tlio sort of
thing you do write. If I were a philan

The literary man , sadder and wiser ,
arose , put on his hat , ami strode silently
out , of the room. When lie reached his
homo he sot to work to turn his play into
a novel. In six months it was published
and made a tremendous hit. The man

his stage manager , and said :

Kvery proposition or principle of the
Knights of Labor every section of their
declaration of principles , depends for its
success upon state and national legisla
tion. Merely executive , clerical , minis
terial or judic al ollices can oiler little or
nothing by way of solution of tlio ques
tions now up between workers on one
hand and capitalists , .schemers ami spec-
ulnlors on tlio other , and such ollioos are
of minor importance anil should receive
no attention from members of our order ,
beyond securing honest ami competent
public servants.
The halls of our legislatures must and
will bo the place whore the rights and
wrongs of workers of all classes will bo
adjusted. In those halls will bo forged
their chains or shattered their shackles ,
and wo deem it important that public at
tention bo called to the fact. Therefore
we , while disclaiming any partisan inten
tions whatever , do believe thai we should
give our support to those who are known
to no advocates of our cause , and that
we should never bo found jiiving aid and
comfort lo the enemy.
Wo find that our cause has a few friends
in congress men of all parlies and
prominent among them are Senator Van
Wyck , of Nebraska , and John A. Ander
son , of the fifth district of this stato. We
express our hope and desire that tnej
may bo relumed to the national legisla
ture , to continue their noble battle for
tinpeople. .
\ \ o recommend that the delegates of
this assembly go to their homes and
among their people , and endeavor , as cit-
i/.eus , to secure the election of represen
tatives and senators to our state legisla
ture , who are known to bo in sympathy
with our declaration of principles , and
that without regard to the party from
which they may come ,
The assembly believes , and i.s entirely
FiUlslictl that ( i. S. Isott , democratic can-
dithte for Lieutenant governor , who , if
elected , wil ) president of ihe senate
a legislative olliccr ; and Charles II.
Moody , the anti-monopoly candidate for
congress from this district are wholly
and heartily with us in our oll'orts ; that
those men have shown their devotion to
our cause by sacrifices in past years , they
having boon tried and not found wanting
We therefor ; ) recommend to all iooal
assemblies , individual Knights and
workingmcn of all classes , that they sup
port tin-so men w'tli ' their votes and
