Fulls City on the afternoon train , and
during the progress of the committee
work wns called upon by the Hr.r. repre
sentative for facts nnd figures. The com
mittee , however , had hciird only from

"lam satisfied , " said Mr. Weaver , that
General Thayer will have at least i5,00 ! ( )
majority over North , and the balance of
the state ticket will not fall more than
3,000 behlivl those ligtirns. Of course , "
continued Mr. Weaver , "every man in
tlio state was surprised at thn result in
tlin First congressional district , nnd the
general distribution of loss in the con
gressional vole leaves no blumu to allaeh
lo any Indvidnal locality. The
question nf prohibition played a more
important part In tin ; First district than
in any other part of the state , and the
conntle.H in thn district that have held
thejr own , and liavo secured
legislators , have undoubtedly done excel
lent work. "
The work of thn committee was con-

is alreaily becoming an netivo totiio of
discussion , and notwithstanding tlio la
bored oll'orU of thu Journal and its satel-
itos to pooh down the unmistakable
strength of Senator Van Wyck , the poli
ticians of Lincoln , nnd visitors fiom out
in thu stale do not fail to uxprc's thu
opinion that the senior rionator s chnnees
are of the brightest character since thu
election , and U is Mated privately Unit Mr.
( iere , himself , is of thu opinion
that Van Wyck will be his own
successor. Of course thu party

with any who will listen. The uuti-Vnn
Wyck leaders in thn city have for three
days unsuccessfully ligured Bruno

of Douglas county have settled thatques-
tion against them.
Saturday II. M. Wells , of Crete , was
served with a warrant of arrest that
charged him with printing and peddling
bogus tickets against Lanliam at thu
polls in Crete. As information reaches
Lincoln the warrant was sworn out by n
brother of Lanham's , and when it was
herved Mr. Well's submitted and was
ready to go to jail if they wanted lo take
him there. They wunttul him to give
bond , but hu didn't want it that way , nnd
after walking around town with him for
iiwhiJu thuy released him. Tins brings
up a little election episode that occurred
in Lincoln on election day
when .1. C. MeUrido was hand
ling mixed tickets at the polls
in the Third ward. The tickets Handled
by him were republican state tickets , in
dependent countv ticket , and preference
for C. II. Van Wyck for senator. An
attorney of the town named Lamb dis
cussed the idea of arresting McBride ,
anil when Muc evinced a willingness to
bu arrested Lamb was to return in a half
hour and make it. The half hour has not
yn. Kpired. Later in thu same day D.
G. Connerv was ! ippi' ° ached and WHS
wanted toswcnr " " out 11 warrant ! against
MpBride , but he 1' ' tll ° solicitors
with a vigorous blessing.
Saturday evening the Travelers' Pro
tective association boys , who have re
cently fitted and furnished commodious
rooms lor themselves in the Lombard
building , had a house warning , to which
all of their friends were Invited , and si
large attendance was the result In the
transaction of business during the coiirsd
of the evening ttio hotel rate and accom
modation question was freely discussed ,
resulting in tlio following resolutions on
the subject :
Whereas , The hotels In the majority of Uio
towns In Nebraska are second class , and
charge first-class prices for tlieir accommoda
tions , anil
Whi'H'HS , Wheio there arc more tlinn one
hotel In an } ' town of ICHS tliun Inhabi
tants , the patronage , it' divided , will net bo
Inrjro enough to enable either hotel .to nc-
cominoilate tint trivbllng fraternity as should
be done , thi'wforo bo It
Itosolvcd , That the members of Hie T , P.
A . , Lincoln Post A , bo requested to putroid/.o
such betels as shall bo designated by the hotel
committee of tills post.
Resolved , Tluit the hotel committee Is
hcrohv Instructed to prepare a list of the ho
tels In tins state , which the members of the
T. P. A. are requested to i > atronye | , nnd have
Hiieh list published tor the accommodation of
the association.
The result of these resolutions were
their unaniirous adoption , although some
of the mtimbers since hold doubts as to
whether it can be made cflectlvo , which
like doubt will presumably arise In the
minds of the landlords when they see llio
results' and find that their individual tav
ern may not be included in the list , Vol
uminous votes of thanks were extended
for kindly donations made by friends of
the boy.s on the road to assist them in lin-
iblung tlieir rooms , and Mr. Parish , one
of the American District Telegraph com
pany , placed one of the company's call
bells in the rooms of tliu post tor ( lie con
venience of the members. The ollicial
list of the members of this post now num
bers llfty-throo and shows a remarkable
grou th since thu Inauguration of the post
less than two months ago. The evening
and thu evening entertainment was
greatly onjoved by all , and of the bov of
cigar.s that the genial Sam Lolaud placed
at the disposal of the gatiicring , not ono

A good illustration of the hcnvy work
in ruilro.ul construe ! ion in Nebraska
during the present year , is found in the
work done by John Fit/gerald , of this
city , who the present season has built ,
from the ground up , nearly 275 ni'ilei of
new road tor the B & Al , company alone.
Mr , Fit/gitrald , in this work , has built
the grade. , laid the ties and irons and sub
let all the bridge work. 'J'horo remains

rilla Iicndcr.
Detroit Free Press : During the Franco-
G rimin war 1 represented leailing
hnghsli journal , which , by the way , ex
changed its reports with an American
paper of national prominence , as war
correspondent. Upon my arrival In Ger
many soon after the declaration of war 1
presented my credi'iithils to the proper
until uitios , and after much delay wa.s at
tacked to tiiu Koyal Saxon army corps , as
bravo a body of warriors as was ever
gathered together for purposes of do-
Btructloti nnd carnage. ( followed the
fortunes of the gallant corns through the
fall campaign and was with them at the
sieire of Paris. It is unnecujsury to pay
tribute to tlio bravery of HIM noiile Saxon
lads who , ufter repellinit Ihn s.ivagu at
tacks of tlio savage enemy , shared tlieir
scanty allowance of pea-s'ius ' > ge and rye
bread with tlio hr.lf starved French guards
who had been fortunate enough to bo
As might bo rxppctoit by constant pres
ence at huadipiartur.s and my unvar
nished reports of the doings of the corps
secured me the friendship of some of Ihe
olllcers , while others found it hard work
to conceal Iho pique excited by my let
ters. Among my dearest friends and de
fender * was Lieuteuiutt It iron Ludwig
von L - , an adjutant to one of the reg-
imeiils attached to Uie cor s. It had
been my good fortune to render a slight
service to the lieutenant diinngthe open
ing days of tlie war and with an enthu
siasm which was inexplicable ti me , he
defended my ever action and let no op
portunity p.iss by lo sound my praises.
It was but iritural that such disinterest
edncss challenged my admiration as
soon as our triondshlp had ripened into
an intiimcy such as only can bo estab
lished amid the MiiToundintrs In wh eh
in winch wo were placed. Notliiii" ;
marred these pleasant relations until
Christmas eve , nliim a stray shell struok
tlie lent in which the lieutenant and I
were celebrating tlie grunt ( Jerman holi
day. In a moment I realized that he
had been severely wounded , while I es
caped iinhanued. An examination of
the vyonnd proved that his life was in
imminent peril , and tlio stall * surgeon
concluded to send von L - to Ins home
in Saxon v. In numianeo of Iho doctor's
directions we parted then and there , and
the early morning tram bore my friend
to tlie arms of his anxious family , while
1 continued my exciting life among the
sanguine soldiery.
The week following his incident was
devoid of interest , owing to the inacl vi-
ty of the French , but on the ninth day
the forts opened lire.and from whispered
conversations at headquarters 1 gleaned
that the morrow would see a sanguinary
contlict. In order to be prepared I left
the. tent of the most advanred Saxon out
post at1 o'clock in the afternoon for the
purpose of preparing topogiaphical notes
concerning the probaolo lield of carnage.
My work was soon completed. Silence
aiut solitude , interrupted at rare inter
vals by the cheery , "Qni vlyoV" of the
Freneli outposts or the gruff ' 'U'or da1'
of the Herman sentinels , tempted mo to
rest under a protecting shed , and b"tore
I had roalr/.cu il I iiad settled down foi a
little nap When 1 awoke the darkness
told me that the evening had far ad
vanced , and lookinir around T saw that a
terrible HIIOW storm bad covered my
tracks. Escape was impossible. I knew
not how to roach my friends and to fall
into the hands of the French meant dis-
irracu and perhaps dishonor.
Making the host of an ncly situation , I
drew my heavy furovorcoatclosur around
me , pulled my cap over mv ears , and re
treated once more within the shed.
Scarcely had I settled into a comfortable
position when 1 was appalled. Was il
possiblel Yes , there at the riekit ) > door
of the shed nUioil , real as life , Lieutenant
von L - , his right aim extended , his
left hand resting upon his sword-belt ,
and speaking in a low and distinct whis
per : "Hewaro of the Franctireurs ! " Sud
denly as the apparition appeared il van
Imagine my feelings ; L cannot describe
them. I verily believe that my hair stood
upon end. A Htupor followed tins fear
and a trance-like slumber. How long I
remained in this condition I knutv not at
the time , but well do 1 remember the
awakening from the trance. My nervous
system was completely deranged , my
hands refused * o do service ; in fact , 1 hail
not the strength to light a match lo look
at my watch. With a groan I sank back
"noil my bed of snow. I tried lo sleep ,

At last relief came. I could RJ ! bo ima :
taken. I heard tlio footsteps of a
body of men. They approached the
shed. Yes , but now with tlie steady tread
of the .soldier. Heavens ! could it no tiio
Franctireurs , these bloodthirsty guerril
las and hvonas of tlio battlefield ! 1 tried
to fortify "myself for an attack. I tried to
arouse my physical self. Heforo I could
arise or make a noise the door of the
shed was rudely opened. A rough face
showed itself. It was that of the loader
of a noted guerrilla band. The Franctir-
cur entered. He approached , cocked lii.s
revolver , and said with meek politeness ,
in broken Herman : "Monsieur , prepare
to aiu. " Making an cll'ort to reach my
own weapon , at this moment I was
startled by the words : "No ho , but you ! "
Looking up I saw the pallid and fright
ened fuco of the Franclireur , and by his
side could it be po-jsibloV Lieutenant
von L - , pointing a pistol at tlio heart
of the asiassin. The excitement proved
too much for my shattered nerves , and
just as 1 heard tlie explosion of a pistol 1
lost consciousness ,
When I revived it was 8 o'clock in llio
morning. By mybidobtood Major M - ,
commander of the advanced outposts ,
and a detachment of Saxon infantry.
"Woll _ done , my lad , " said the major ,
and witli that ho pointed to an object

L'uo a Hash the niyetur'ous apparition
presented iUult to niy mind , and hastily
calling a corporal I bade him extract the
bullet from the dead Franctirour's wound.
Then 1 produced my revolver nad found
that not a shot nad been tired from it. I
compared the bullets used by me with
that extracted from tliu wound. They
wore of aillerent weight. The mystery
was uutolveil. Who had shot my enemyy
The battle predicted by the BlaH'oIl'ieers
was not fought on that day , nnd I was
glud of it , for the exciting sccucd of the
previous night compelled me to rest for
some time. On the fifth day after my
adventure J received u letter from Sax
ony. Here It is :

A Kansas Ijawyerlilnil by nn Ignor
ant Judge , Creates n. homo In
Court ,
Wo sometimes growl about the way tlio
modern lawyer attacks ana insults a' wit
ness on the stand. but ( hero has really
been a improvement in the last
twenty year.s , especially In llio west. In
1SU3 a writer in tlio Detroit Free Pro-s
was a juror In the case of Adams v.s
P.tigo , tried In Kan.S'is. Adam.s was a
Boston speculator , who was trying to
oust Paige from certain hums. The lands
clearly belonged to jvdams. and Paige
was clearly a squatter , but the latter re-
si-led and the former appealed to the law.
The judge xvas a siinatter , nnd therefore
a sympathiser , while Palirn was likewise
a cousin of Ills. \V lien Adams came to
take the st'tnd Paige's lawyer , who-,0
name was BiiU , began :
"Now. Mr. Adams , you say you bought
this land from a party in Boston * "
"Yes , s r. "
"And you paid him
"Ves , sir. "
"Now , sir , isn't it a fact that while this

lay dvlng you robbud him of this dead ? "
"No , sir ! "
"Be careful ! We want no perjury in
tins easel How often have you been sent
lo the state prison ? "
"Look out ! Aht see the guilty blush
on his face ! Noti : o hiseonfnsion'l Your
honor , that man is deliberately lying ! "
"I object toall this"exelaimeil ! Adams'
lawyer as he .jumped up.
"Steve Itulloek.yousoldovvnl" shouted
his honor. "I've known vou ever since
you started out driving a mule team , and
yon was allus obji'olln ; to everything. If
this man has been in .state prison this
court wants to know it. hut him answer
the question. "
"I never boon , " replied Adams.
"Have you ever robbed a widow ? "
asked the lawyer.
"Your honor , what lias all this lo do
with tlie case on trial ? " asked Adams'
"Heaps , your honor , " replied Brilt. "If
we can MIOW that this man is a thief ,
murderer , and land pir.ilo , U is our busi
ness to do so. If a welt in sheep's ' cloth
ing sneaks into our innocent community ,
it is our duty to expo-e him. "
"I should say it was , " answered Iho
court. "The witness must answer the
question or I'll look him up tor con
tempt. "
"I never did , " replied Adams.
"Then your looks belie yon. Didn't
you set a store uliro in St. Louis ? "
"No. sir. "
"Nor rob a bank in St. Louis ? "
"Your honor , I mujst object , " said Bui-
look. "Tills is a eo o - "
"Stove Bullock , sot down ! " exclaimed
tlie court. "You quit driving mules a
year ago and went into law , but you
don't know everything yet This court
can give you half a mile the start and
beat you in. If tins man robbed a bank
wo want to know it. Wo want to know
what sort of a man hs : | come among us
to skeor our wimin and children. "
"I did not rob si bank , " . said Adams.
"Oh , you didn't ! " sneered Unit. "How
about burning a barn in Illinois ? "
"Your honor , I did not como here to bo
insulted , " said Adams , as lie turned to
tlio court.
"Answer the question ! " commanded
the judge. "I've got a barn of my own ,
or am going to have next spring , and if
we've taken a barn-burner to the bosom
of this community 1 want to know it. "
For two long hours Britt continued to
ask such questions , and the pulge obliged
this tlio witne- to answer. Then the case
for the defense wa.s closed without a
word in reirard to the legal aspects.
Britt contended , in his speech to the jury ,
that it was a plot to rob n big-hearted ,
good-nature'1 citizen ot his all , and Bul
lock was o d , L".istet ! that ho refused to
cxiiwino a w.iness or make an argument.
"Gents , " said the coi rt , when ho
charged up , "we don't want no fooling
in this case. That 'ere land belongs to
Bill Paigh , and you want to return a vor-
dielto thatollecr. "
Wo went out and ten of the twelve were
rcadv to agree with the court. Two of
us hung out. and to reward us for pro
ducing a disagreement his honor sent us
to jail for thirty-six hours a piece.

A Pica fur llio Horse.
New Orleans Picayune : If you biro a
horse at a livery stable you ought to treat
him as if ho were your own. If you drive
out ten miles you ought not to attend to
your own wants until you see him prop
erly cared for. If an honest man , you
will remember yon are under a two-fold
obligation to that animal an obligation
to its owner and an obligation to tlio ani
mal. You are tne debtor of both , and
though you pay tlie price of the horse ,
yet no money can 'release ' you from
the duty unit moral claim involved
in the bargain bol woeu yourself unit the
owner. Tojieirlect the poor speechless
beast , that cannot nppeal in your tongue
to tlio commiseration , of a passer-by , is
simply unpardonable , and the man who
is gniltv ot such ncglfi9t is worse than a
man. The arrant infidelity of Balaam
and his sordid love for- money are sec
ondary crimes compared witli his brutal
abuse of the ass whiohihe rode , and the
Lord wrought a mirsvolo to soouro al
lowed renioiibtrant'o , .Wo have but one
jnstance tn the whole ijlblo of a dumb an

The Ilr at Novgorod ,
The annual fair at Nislmi Novgorod U
ccJebrutud throughout Ktinaitt , but it is
stated by wull-inioriucd Uussuiii journals
that it is on Hie decline. Everybody
knows , says the Si. Petersburg Ua/etto ,
that this fair is of great importance to the
commerce of the whole empire. It is
there nhcra the p rices art ) . settled for row
materials as well as for nianiifnclurod
article * , and Iho well being of the whole
oriental p.irt of the empire depends on
the fair. Long ago the decline of this
great lair has been predicted , and ono day
it will vanish before the cllbrts for the
extension of steam power byroad and by
xvater. It is oven possible to foresee the
time when the Nislinl fair will bo only of
local importance as a place where ( no
products of the small industries of the
Volga basin are exchanged , and the
opening of the S.iinar < i Ufa railroad on
Iho one hand and the projected construc
tion of another railwr.y from Kazan to
Mourom will help to bring about that
time , It may oven happen that all the
oxehango which is now carried on with
Asiatic merchants will pass away from
Nishni , where it has been centered for
many years , to Astrakhan nivl Baku ,
where the minister of linance laM spilng
anttiori/.ed periodical fairs. But all hough
these arc only predictions relating to some
future time , there is no doubt that for
some time past the Importance of the fair
has been on the deellnn. ' 1 bus , according
to ollicial documents , Ilia circulation of
money at last year's fair has amounted
to 1-WU5,7W ; rubles , \\hieh , compared
with the precluding year , shows a dimin
ution of 18,000,000 rubles , while the pres-
nut year shows again a diminution 01 , ' ( ) , -
000,00(1 ( rubles On the whole , the fair has
been below the averasro. There were
fewer visitors than last year ; a multitude
of articles have remained unsold , and
many bargains have bmin retracted. No
prices have been settled , and no produce
lius been sold. There wore also far fewer
articles of merchandise than ! n.preceding
years. _
