The prohibition Htnto convention to
elect delegates to their national con
vention meets in this city Wednesday
of this week. The apportionment of
delegates places the number entitled to
scnt ata figure near ono thousand , BO
that the convention will not fall far
short of a majority of the prohibitionists
in the state. From this convention a
great deal of noise nnd voluminous
resolutions may bo expected. It is a
noticeable fact that the lu.st stuto pro
hibition convention Hindu a great deal
more fuss than their depleted returns
on election day. . The party started out
in the early autumn days with the
avowed intention of rex'olutlonl/.ing
Nebraska , but when the votes wore
counted it was found the party laid an
absolute loss of votes over the year pre
vious. The same old claim of GOOUO ,
votes in the state will undoubtedly bo
made in this convention , but it is safe
to. predict a still greater depletion in
their vote the present year.
Wednesday next is Charter day at the
Blute university , and the usual exercises
commemorative of the occasion will bo
hold. The anniversary is tlto fifteenth
of the institution , and the growth ami
prosperity of the school will bo n gen
eral subject of favorable comment.
During the afternoon the university
will bo open to the public and strangers
as well us citizens of the city and state
are cordially invited to visit the school
in all its departments. In the evening
the commemorative exercises will beheld
held at the university chnpol. The
principal feature of the occasion will bean
an address by Chancellor Lippincolt of
the Univeralty. of Kansas.

and loyal tribute to beauty and genius.
The prince la beyond question kindly
nnd generous ; men of his set pronounce
him a "capital good follow " but repub
lican as I am , It seems to mo that the
heir to the proudest and noblest crown
in the world should not bo any fellow's

would seem that a time like this wore

In his marriage the Prince of Wales
has no advantage over his brothers , ex

wife. The duchess of Edinburg , though
llttlo liked in England , is a woman of
strong character , rare intelligence , nnd
dignity of demeanor ; tho- duchess of
Connnught , an excellent little creature ,
and no fool , holds her husband's heart
in spite of her exceeding plainness ,
while the princess o' Wales , amiable ,
graceful and gracious , Is rather nega

Klly young , with no trace of sorrow or
trial , or even thought , In her pretty ,
placid face ; fond of amusement , frankly
frivolous , and not too jealous of her
dignity. In fact , the charming royal
matron yet retains all a girl's love of
admiration , dress and adornment.
It is little wonder in these critical
times that serious English people look
forward with some apprehension to the
coming to the throne of this pair of
perennially youthful pleasure-lover.s.
They may love and admire , but they do
not wholly trust them. They fear that
the court of the futuvo reign will be
rather u mercantile than a moral ad
vantage to London ; : hat in its science ,
literature and art of the highest char
acter , great public enterprises , and
schemes of education and benevolence
will Hnd oven loss aid and comfort than

and miserly court ; while through its
favor will Hourish mightily eostumcrs

singers , and American champion shots ,
showmen , swimmers and pugilists.

motest parts of the kingdom news of the
interview between the British heir
apparent and n notorious American
prize lighter. The account of the cour
tesies exchanged between these two
powerful personages , in which the Irish-
American did not by any moans take a
secondary position the report of the
conversation , liberally spiced on both
sides with the slang of the ring , and
preceded and followed by "hearty hand
shakes , " must have been tough reading
for aristocratic and refined conserva
tives. Yet I nm afraid there is not
: imong the entire English aristocracy a
peer or a prelate too proud to kiss the
hand of his royal highness after the grip
of Sullivan the slupgor.
But the republicans should not be
troubled. The less the prince realizes
the mighty responsibilities and magnifi
cent opportunities of his own position ,
the more ho cheapens royalty through
such unworthy associations , the better
for the principles of democracy and
equality. Lot him continue to make
light of his dignity and his destiny a

must como either to him or the entire
system of English sovereignty. This is
an ago of miracles , the saving chantrc

"A Drummer's Dream. "
A Itttto room In a little hotel ,
In n llttlo country town ,
On it little bed with musty smell
A man was lying down.
A ereat big man with a great big snore
For ho lay on his back , you see
And a peaceful look on Ills face he wore ,
For sound asleep was he.
'n his dreams what marvelous trips he made ,
What heaps of stuff he sold !
And nobody fulled , and every one paid ,
And his orders were good as gold.
; Ic smiled and smothered a scornful laugh ,
When his follow drummers blowcd ;
For ho knew uo other luff sold the half
Of what his order-book sho'.ved.
Ho got UU letter from home one day ;
"Dear Sir we've no Jitter term
To use In your case than simply to say :
Henceforth you are ono of the firm. "
And a glorious change this made in his life ,
Ho now from the road withdrew ;
And really soon got to know his wife ,
His son , and his daughters too.
But with a thump bang whang thump-
bang again ,
The "boots" hud knocked at the door ;
"It's very near time for the 0:10 : train. "
And the "Drummer's Dream" was o'er.

"I have a great undo who is as shrewd and

Bnp representative ; "just the sort of an olc
fellow whoso mental machine doesn't gc
well unless It Is mounted on some kind of t
hobby. Phrenology used to bo the great
thing with him four or flvo years ago. 1
never was at his hpuso of an evening that tu
wasn't burled in a periodical , the cover ol
which was embellished with the sldo clcva
tlon of a head printed full ot little pictures
The old gentleman thought ho was on the
way to getting the whole universal scheuii
of things by the foretop , .and if your bump :
didn't si/o up right , you might as well ae
knowledge your name Dennis and done wilt
it. His family consisted of himself , his wife
and an only daughter. Ho was the leading
merchant of the llttlo Illinois town where hi
lived , and the family , as is not unusual ii
such cases , cherished a rather overpowerini
idea of their own respectability. I wai
traveling for u Chicago house then , and whci
I went in , which was two or three times i
year , I made it a point to stay over a fev
days with them.
About this time this was four years ago
or so , you know the daughter was a might ;
pretty g'rl of seventeen , and with a bit o
romance in her disposition. Well , ono uven
ing she and I wcro strolling alone the OIK
street of'their village ; some errand or othci
called us into a drug store , and as wo entcrct
the door I discovered the finest specimen o
physical manhood that I over had the pleasure
uro of looking at. Ho was a man prouabl ;
six feet-two , broaU shouldered and dec |
chested. Ho was lounging ugains
the counter and his hat wa <
pushed back on his head. Hi :
forehead was broad , but not high ; his cye <
magnificent ; his nose and cars nil that couhl
bo demanded. The lower part of his foci
was concealed by u silky , flowing browi
beard which fell down upon his chest. 1
regular washer the licard ulono would imvi
done the business for half the t-irls. Then
was Just n suggestion of Insolence In his at
titude and in the calm look ho cast at us ; but
the instant ho saw my cousin hosti-aightcnei
tip , half hesitatingly raised his hand , ant
then , as his eye mot hers , lifted his hat and
bowed. There suumcd an InsUmt of uncer
talnty on her part , then she colored ilceplj
and slightly inclined her head. . Noltnei
spoke as she stood close beside him while sh <
iniiclo her purchase , and when wo loft th <
store , although she strove to appear a1
though nothing had occurred , I could easilj
see the change In her "humor. Of course , :
saw from her manner In recognizing hin
that thnro was something extraordinary ii
her relation whatever it was to the man
but it was no business of mine and I snli
nothing. I carried the unpleasant conscious
ness of it with mo to the city , however , am
perhaps it may liavu had something to di
with my arranging to pay M a visit in i
couple of weeks on my way out ,
1 got In In the niuht. As I approached tin
house I saw that , there was a light in the par
lor , and when I got insldo f found that , nlatif.
with the light , uiy brown bearded fellow wai
also in the parlor. I was duly presented ti
him. Ills narno was Doctor Powell , and i
fmv momenta observation satisfied ma tha
Doctor l owell had come to stay.
My aiint Informed mo haw it had coini
about as nearly as the good lady undcrstooi
it herself , whlclj , to say the truth , seemed t (
bo none too clearly. It appeared that the ac
quamtance begun with ono of these peculiai
chances of travel which always seem so uu
accountable to throw a fellow it
the same seat with u pretty girl
Of course the doctor had been too nice fo
anything and his seductive beard hnd rippiei
and shone In the most becoming lights. Thi
next meeting had been in the drug store , am
by that declension , to the parlor had boon ui
easy way for him. My aunt was troublci
and uneasy. They really Knew nothing abou
him except that ho appeared genteel ; but hi
bumps wore most satisfactory to my uncle
and that settled it with him. No man witl
such bumps could bo anything but most exemplary
emplary that was my uncle's dictum , am
the beauteous doctor Haunted his beard am
bumps nightly In the parlor , midnight en wo v
tire-glossy threads of the former about Eva'
susceptible heart. I gathered from his coplou
conversation that he had retired from actlv
practice and was now a gentleman of ease an
wealth , with interests in the west which re
fiuired an occasional visit. . Ho WHS In M
with u view to largo investments , my uncl
said. To tclljtho truth , I didn't Ilka the fcl-
ow. Ho talkctf'loo fluently about his own
remarkable aihldvoments and exploits to suit
no but. maybe jl had an Idea that he wasn't
at all the sort .tot m n for Eva , and I
nay have cherished another Idea that I could
ay my handj upon a great deal better wan
for her any hour of the day or night.
I went nwily that tlrao with an uneasy ache
under my coat lajijicl , and with a Vague , but
much cherlsfTeil notion that I would somehow
or other she * Up the doctor , bump , beard and
all. I began'my trip and ten days after 1 loft
M as 1 was tiding through the streets of
an Iowa city on my way to the train , I behold
a spectacle that came near making Die forget
.hat such a tiling as a train existed. I have a
particular frtctii } In this Iowa city n married
lady whom I hnvo known ever since I was
kneo-hlgh , and whom I think n great deal of.
Well , just as the 'buss swung past her
residence I glanced up and saw on her porch ,
hat In band and paying her his adieus , my
doctor. Now Mrs. V Is n tremendous
authority on respectability , and the fact that
she had received n visit from Dr. Powell
should have settled all doubt of his social
standing at once , I told tnysclf. It was
really no business of mine anyway , I said ,
and I wouldn't meddle. If the girl was sat
isfied , and her folks were satisfied , and I
know nothing against the man , why should t
| ) lay the detective gratuitously ! Still I
wouldn't content myself to let It rest at that.
I stood it two days and then wrote Mrs. V
a note fpollng like some now sort of a
sneak , as I did It asking her what she know
concerning Dr. Powell. 1 haunted the post-
ofllco three days and was finally rewarded ,
and with poetic Justice I told myself gloom
ily , by receiving from her a note which read ,
'Hove no fear of Dr. Powell. Ho Is all ho
claims to bo,1 with the nil underscored In
trim feminine fashion.
There was nothing for It after that but to
pull my hat down over my brows and culti
vate n manner of dark and forbidding mis
anthropy an undertaking , by the way , in
which I was so-successful that nil of the boys
cut my acquaintance inside of a week. I
conceived it to bo. my duty to inform my
aunt of what I had learned , and 1 did so
wishing Eva eternal happiness in a lachry
mose postscript , along with other idiocies
which I have forgotten.
This business went on for four weeks , in
which I reconciled myself to my bitter lot ,
and did many other fool things. Then I was
surprised tit receiving n second note ad
dressed in the well-known handwriting of
Mrs. V 1 toro It open and read :
" 'I fear 1 was over hasty in HO fully recom
mending Dr. Powell. You see I had suffered
untold agonies with my feet , and when his
operation afforded me such relief as it
surely did yon will forgive mo if I was too
enthusiastic : I am tortured now , however ,
by a terrible suspicion that the doctor Is a
good deal of n fraud , and that I may yet
have to endure yours uf that detestable pain ,
the harder to bear because one cannot attach
any spark of heroism to it. In short , I am
afraid that my corn Is coming back to tor
ment me. 1 hope my retraction will come in
time to save you from the reversal of hopes I
nm now suffering. '
"I don't know whether I oven whooped
when I read it. I do know that I sent it bv
the Ili-st nniil to M and that I followed it
at , the end of my trip. The gallant com doc
tor had decamped when 1 arrived. The
amount of I. O. U.s bearing the correctly
bumped doctor's signature which my uncle
burned is yet a matUT between himself and
ills conscience , and it will be a very nervy
nuin that tries to find It out. I have had it
in my mind several times to ask him how ho
was getting on .With phrenology , but when I
look tit his black eye-browed , tlorid , square
old face , my couratre forsakes me. And , by
tne way , you mustn't print this , because

peace , I projnised my wife never to mention

Bonliam , Texan , Dispatch the Glob Democrat -
crat : A drummer has Just come to grief in
this city la a way that will cause unlimited
fun for weeks to como. Last Saturday
there arrived in town a young Hebrew drum
mer who represented a Jewelry house la
Philadelphia. This was the young man's
first visit to Texas , and ho thought it was a
a way-back country where style was not wont
to dwell. He dressed hlmsolf in the latest
Broadway agony , and proceeded to prome
nade the town , eyeing every girl ho met.
Ills actions wore noticed by several young ,
men of the town , who determined to take
some ot the _ conceit out of the drummer.
TJiey accordingly formed a bond of eight or
ten and agreed upon a plan of action. Two
of the number made friendly advances to him
and proposed to show him the town by night.
To all of their plans the young man readily
agreed , and about 10 o'clock nt night the
trio started out In Hie west part of the
down to an alleged beer garden. When
about half a mile from the square , In n dark ,
muddy and thinly settled portion of the city ,
the drummer and his escort wore suddenly
confronted by live or six heavily armed and
desiwrato looking individuals , who called to
the trio to halt. The dude's escort , accord
ing to n preconcerted arrangement , made a
break to ryn , and the driitnmor , who was
almost frightened out of his wits , thinking it
n regular Texas hold-up , of course ran also.
Immediately thu armed mnn commenced a
regular fusillade , about twenty shots being
fired after tho'fleeing party. One of the
guides fell and cried tlmt he was seriously
wounded. This added terror to the thor
oughly frightened youth , who had gained the
middle of the street , and regardless of mud
and gocd clothes was running for dear Ufa.
Police Officer Weathorsby , who had started
to learn the cause of so much shooting , met
the Heeling figure of the "inashor , " and
throwimr the pistol down Into his face told
him to stop. The officer assured him that no
harm was intended , and allowed him to
come on to town , where ho hud a remark
able story to toll of his escape from the band
of desperadoes. Presently the .boys who
hnd acted as escort straggled in , one of thorn
limping from nn alleged bullet wound. The
drummer was informed that his lifo was In
danger : that his actions had incensed many
of the clti/.cns , who would surely kill him if
he did not soon make his escape from this
town. Ho was advised to disgulso himself
and leave as soon us possible. This sugges
tion ho agreed to net upon the next day , and
went to his room at the Crockett House ,
locking himself in , and spent a sleepless
night , Yesterday morning ho sent for a bar
ber , who went to his room and cut off his
long-cherished mustache. Ho then sent fern
n slouch hat , old coat and duckmg overalls.
When ho had put on this disguise , and
was about to start to the depot , another
drummer put him on to the joko. By this
time , however , everybody in town had
learned of the affair , and great crowds of
people gathered around the depot to see
tilt ! tenderfoot of the east. So annoying did
the Jeering crowd become to the manner that
he begged the depot officials to lock him in
the freight room until the train arrived. This
was done , and the verdant youth from Phila
delphia says if ho over sees Bonlium again it
will bo through a telescope. Nothing has
caused KO much interest and fun In this place

The Rabbet Industry.
Manufacturer's Mqnthly : There nro
about 20,000,000 pounds of rubber Im
ported yearly to the United Stutos.
About one-half of this conies from thu
Para , Brazil. Many other tropical
countries produce rubber , but not suuh
stock us the Para stoek. Next in qual
ity conies the African rubber , wnich
ranks ntnone the poorest sorts , and is
used for boltlnes and articles where ,
united with duck by hydraulic pressure
the rttbbor receives no stran. The best
quality of rubber , the Para , is the sort
of which overshoes are made or otipht
to bo. But there are about 70,000,000
pair * to be made a year out of the lim
ited stock of Para material , and it
takes at least one-half a pound of rub
ber itself for a pair ot men's overshoes ,
and a.s 70,000,000 will not go into IUV-
000,000 , there are few overshoes made 6f
complete rubbnr of the best quality.
The prlcoof rubber is about 70 cents per
pound ; this means rubber of the Para
quality. The material in clear rubber
of the best grade for a pair of ordinary
overshoes cannot cost more than 50 cents
at the most. The further expense nec
essary to the production of thu shoos are
for cloth lining too small per pair to
need noting almost ; and all the remain-
ilor is for thu manufacturing process.
The average price per pair is CO cents
over the United States , but the prices of
the different shoes run ire from $1.75 to
1 ! ) cents per pair. Especially in New-
York this variety has existed at the
same season , and the $1.75 sort wore
very little bettor , if at nil. than the 10-
cent grade. The deterioration in the
quality of rubber garments and over
shoes everywhere has been for several
years a matter of general public note. .
The competition of dealers is the
cause , the crude rubber itself being as
good now as it ever was , and the gen
eral competition and variety of prices.
It is impossible to know where goulno
rubbers are to bo had , and nobody can
tell what proportion , If any , of good-
srrado rubber is contained in a newly
finished pair of overshoes ; the exporter
or the dealers thentbolvos cannot toll by
an inspection of the article when it is
new. The difference between two pair
of rubbers that have seen service , one
made of rubber at first hand mid the
other made of rubber composition , is
It happens this time , however , that
no overshoes made for sale are wholly
of the crude' imported rubber at llr.t
hand and of the llrst quality. The
second grndo of Pnrii rubber is a very
inferior one , and where the overshoes
are at their best at the present day ,
they are still to a great extent made of
the bccona and inferior grades. Manu
factures pretend at times to make an
article for sale of the lirst quality , but
competent , non-manufacturing authori
ties dealing in rubber say that not. a
pair of rubbers in the market is made
of genuine Hrst-cUihS rubber , and that
at the present prices of overshoes ,
such quality cannot bo manufactured.
Some rubber llrms doing a largo
business use only one case of rubber
per month. A Jewish rubber com
pany in Jersey City beats this by
supplying the public with im
mense stock of overshoes without re
ceiving any native rubber at all. The
resources of their trade are the gather
ing upof _ refuse rubber , on the principle
by which some cigarettes arc made ; and
and rubber shoes
the cast-off worn-out
of ono season's wear turn out now , shin
ing and advertised as of superlative
quality in a following season. No other
material to adulterate rubber with has
over been found except rubber itself.
But the old and broken stuff , and the
crumbling and inferior now material
are sulllciontly poor to bo very marked
in their dilTorence from the llrst-class
The _ secrets of the rubber trade and
the proportion of rubber which enters
into every manufacturer's products , are
not known to auy ono outside of the
trade , or , perhaps , outside of the manu
