I started off In this way , while thu crowd
started elf In a dozen different ways :
liadles , Gentlemen and Kditors : I deeply
feel and doubtless fully appreciate the terri
ble sactllice you are making , If you remain to
listen to mo on this occasion. This is not
my lirst offense.
1 shall not plead the baby act. I am here
to speak and II any man or woman or child
or adult person or infant of cither sex Im
agines 1 am not going to speak , that person
Is troubled and hampered and perplexed by
or with an over-production of happiness.
Over-production Is ruining this country.
Change , 1 said , my voice mellowing
down to where It sounded like the lark or
Sunan U. Anthony , Is stamped on every
thing especially on the breath of a man who
frequents saloons frequently. ( A voice ,
"bounce him. " ) I m > o around and about me
many men who would bo willing to swear to
their circulation on this point.
lint I am not here , my hearers , to attempt
toflucldato the Darwinian thctrjr on a toothy
cylinder In rotary motion , which Is the Latin
for "monkoyln1 with the buzz saw while in
motion , " but rather , my hoarurs , to toll yon
what 1 know about tdltin' a newspaper , and
performing such other labor as Is nccussary
In a print shop to enlighten the tolling mil-
lians. ( Groans , together with cries of
"chestnuts , " from Judge Morris and John M.
Thurston who has recently teturned from a
fishing excursion and a lonely sojourn In the
mountains of the plains of Minnesota. ) I
looked around and saw a ttlp pass smile and
an orator-Crawlord-expresslon on Taurstou's
face and I said with renewed vUor and an
attempt at "sarkasm , " "If John M. Thurs-
ton wants to laugh at me he can laugh.
Hut lie had better return to Omaha and bet
some man a dollar that ho escaped the Pacllic

be hied and hid himself away and dodged tbe
only men on earth who were anxious to see
him , says 1 , maybe ho will want to run for
United States senator next time , Instead of
running away from the commission.
1 presently commenced to talk again when
I said : An editor Is not necessarily a suc
cess It ho gets drunk every night In the week.
Neither Is no a success If ho remains sober
every week In tne month. As Judge Good
win would say If he had been here-an editor
Is just liUe any other Individual with a few
advantages possessed by no one else.
W non 1 used to do the editorial work on
the Times , It was sport tor mo. I milked
( our 'cows and took care of twelve horses and
a roan steer , and did the editorial work and
had plenty ot time to snare. Do you suppose
every man could do that ? No. 1 ven
ture to say that Governor Dawcs , whom
I see In this audience , wouldn't think ol
such a thing. Yet Governor Dawes used to
edit his messages and take cant of the school
land thieves , its I understood It , with great
sang fraud which Is the Latin for sane
irold.When I edited but there h no use for mete
Hut , as 1 said before , my hearers , the ed
itor Is a man of genius a man of good char

John M. Thurston has said a coed deal

physician was hastily summoned to the

that the entire family , with the exception of
Mr. Knote , svcre , Uoubled with excessive

had partaken of some poisonous substance.
Among other things they hnd canned
peaches and milk for dinner , and Mrs. Kuote
was Inclined to believe that the m'lk ' had
caused the ttoubk * . Simple remedies wcto
applied , and at last accounts the sick ones ,
Mrs. Knote and tlio children , wore feeling
much better. A careful analysis of the milk
failed to reveal anything of a poisonous na
ture , and It Is now thought that the canned
peaches caused tlio trouble.

The Colorado Drought.
DRNvnit , July 7. ( Special Telegram to
the UEI : . | Koports which como to Denver
concerning the drought In the eastern portion
tion of the state do not agree with those
sent to Washington from the same locality.
To within two weeks nco it was represented
hero that the people who hud located within
the "tain belt" wore gettlttt ; frequent show
ers and about as much water as was needed.
No otto need to be surprised , however , if
there should bo a suUiclont scarcity of moist
ure during the present month to create seri
ous apprehension. 1 his thing occiuredlast
season and It Is apt to occur aealn. Mid
summer droughts are not Intiequeiit In all
sections of the country , and certainly Colorado
rado may not hope for an immunity from tlio
visitation. But while there was much com
plaint last season , there were also good crops.
It may be so again tins time.

days. There was never such good feel
ing between the traveling salesmen and
the railroads as existed just previous to
the enactment of the law , nnd the rail
roads have learned to approchuli the
alno of tha friendship of the common
itl : fraternity.
Tno afternoon session was delayed
until the committee on revision of the

while waiting the jolly travelers amused
themselves with some of thu stories for

Jlio constitution was adopted. Thu read

lack of knowledge of parliamentary rules
by the members. The traveling men pro

At Cliin lust night , box 03 called the fire
ilopurtmout to the corner of Thlrtoonth
and Harncy streets. A voliuuu of sinoko
WHS pouring out of the third story south
ern windows of the brick block owned
by Hansel & Alien and occupied by H.
HIiiKlMiii , K. I' . Fox & Co. and W , L.
\VriKht. The dopartmunt responded
quickly , but were greatly hampered by the
Croat crowd which lloekod from all direc
tions. Lillet' Galilean turned in n second
nlnrm for reinforcements. Soreennt
Mostyn , Otllcers Mcltrido and Dempsey
emleavorcd to keep the crowd from the
streets , but were too weak in numbers to
stem the tide of surging and crowding
liutiiunit.y , The whole rear portion of
the block was on lire. The department
soon had streams of water playing upon
the building from all directions , but not
before the south end had been pretty
badly damaged. Tlio second floor was
occupied by several persons as olliocs ,
and their damage is comparatively small.
11. liingham , commission merchant , oc
cupied the southern end of the block.
His damage will amount to about $2,000 ,
on which Tie has an insurance of $1,200.
K. P. I'aj & Co. , coufoctioncrs ,
were damaged to the extent of
$ ' 2,000 ; partially insured.V. . L.
Wright , retail crockery and glass
ware suffered less than the others. His
loss , together with the damage to the of
fices on the second tloor and the damage
to the block , will foot up about $1,000.
The principal damage is from water.
The lire is believed to bo .tho work of an
incendiary. The whole of the roar end
of the building was on lire when the
bla/.o was discovered. It burned through
Irom lloor to lloor without spreading to
the front until the third story was
reached. In the third story was storeil a
lot of furniture , bedding , etc. , which
probably created the great smoke but
prevented a rapid spread of the lire.
THIS NKI3D OF MOKE POLICEMEN.
The City Actually Sufferlnc For llot-
The lack of police protection was never
more painfully apparent than last night.
At the time the lire alarm called the tire-
men to the corner of Thirteenth and
Hartley it also attracted hundreds of
people from till directions. Heingin
the heart of the business center ,
it took but a few moments to
ill the intersecting streets with men ,
ivomen and children. The pilbrts of the
ire department wore greatly impeded by
; he great crowd , and it was fully ten
ninutcs after the alarm had sounded be-
ore water was thrown upon the burning
building. In every city in the country
of the si/.o of Omaha , a detail of police
would have been on lianil to assist the lire-
non , protect property and keep back the
crowd. In most places of the importance
of Omaha a detail of policemen run in
the police patrol to central lire alarms
and the ollicers from beats adjacent to
the box from which the alarm is sounded
ire instructed to be upon the scone. If
the lire is lirgc , ropes arc stretched and
the policemen assist in protecting the
property. Last night there were
just thirteen policemen on duty
throughout the city. Two of these , to
gether with n sergeant , were on hand and
labored hard to keep back the crowd.
They did as much as any three men could
do , but were insutHciont to keep the
mob from trrcatly interfering with the
laying of the hose and the movements of
the firemen. A disastrous conflagration
may awake the community to a
full House of just what the
opposition of the city council to
the police department means. That burg
laries and other crimes are committed
with impunity should create no surprise ,
since there are but thirteen policemen
doing night duty and about an equal
number on day service. ' 1 ho police force
is greatly overworked. Chief Soavey ,
Captains Cormiek anil Green and Ser
geant Mostyn being compelled to do the
duty of patrolmen. When some great
disaster befalls , then the community nuij
bo thoroughly iiwnkened to the reprchen-
siblo opposition of the aldcrmuuic'ring to
the police department.
Wanted Him Arrested.
"Can I speak to the head man ? " said
a trim and business-like little woman as
stio interrupted the conversation of a
cotcrio in police station last evening.
She was referred to Jailer Slgwart. "I
want my husband arrested. His name
is Hankin Kd Kanktn. Ho goes around
with another woman. I don't care any
thing for him any more and 1 won't live
with him. Wo haven't boon married but
a short time. He's nothing to me , but I
think its a shame yes sir , n shame
( waxing wroth ) that ho should go with
another woman. I want him arrested 1"
As soon as the jailer could get in a word
he explained that they could do nothing
for her ho must swear out a warraat.
Disappointed in her attempt ut revenge ,
Mrs. itankin tripped away. Judging
from appearances , however there is
trouble in store for her untruthful loige.
