LINCOLN. August M. I
The money sharks of Grand Island nro op
posed to tlio ordur of llio slnto board of trans *
portallon reducing freight nitos , nnd they
pour fltfong vinegar over the taffy they feed
the board. They petition the honorable body
us follows :
GUANO ISLAND , Neb. , August S3. To the
Stuto Hoard of Transportation : Recognizing ,
uswii do , the wisdom und fidelity to llio pub
lic interests generally manifested by thu
tttuto board of trnnfl | > ortnilon In Its proceed
ings , wo1 yet most respectfully desire to plaeo
upon record our dissent to their recent order
Btill furthnf reducing freight rates through
out tin ) stato.
So far as we are acquainted with the fool
ing of our community we bclicvo that all are
imtlsflcd with tlio November rates , nnd no
discontent or dissatisfaction has been ex
pressed by any to your honorable body.
The reduction you order , about 15 per cent
below the November lariff , Is lee slight to af
fect the farmer or the tnerclmnt Itfdivld-
ttnlly , cither favorably or otherwise , yet our
railroads must feel it heavily In gross. Wo
believe the effect of crlirpling the earning
power of rallroiidM to this extent will com
pletely discourage tliem from further eon-
Htntetloii and compel partial withdrawn ! of
facilities wo now etijoy , while wo nro conll-
Uent that if your order is insisted uponj a
check will bo put upon all new railroad en
terprises from the building of which so much
lias been hoped for In the way of the dovol-
mcnt , of tliu state , and in tlio Itiereuso In thu
Wealth and prosperity of our people. For
these reasons , wo , the undersigned business
men , incroliauls and bankers of Grand
Island , do respectfully petition your honor-
nllo body to recall thu order In natation nnd
make it of no effect.
The foregoing petition was signed by fif
teen pontons , icprosBittlng the business in
terests of Grand Island , chiefly real estate
men and bankers.
Tlio following complaint was riled with the
board of transport : . ! hit to-day :
H. C. livens , complainant , vs the Fremont ,
Elkhorn ft Missouri Valley Kuilroad com
pany , respondent.
Complainant for cause of complaint against
tlio above named respondent , alleges :
First. . That bo Is a resident of Newport ,
lirown county , Nebraska , und that the above
named respondent , the Fremont , Klltlmrn k
Missouri valley Kailroud company Is n cor
poration organized under and by virtue of
thu laws of thu state of Nebraska , and oper
ates a railroad by steam In said stale , which
ftaid railroad passes through the village of
Newport , Neb.
Second That on the 2d day of September ,
1830 , the then Iwurd of railroad commis
sioners Issued an order or recommendation
requiring the said respondent to provide n
depot building and other shipping facilities
ut said village of Newport , Neb.
That said respondent has provided n depot
mid side tracks at said village , but has
wholly neglected to provide stock yards for
the shipment of stock , and although re
peatedly requested to do BO by your com-
jilninnnt and other citizens of said Newport ,
Las wholly neglected und fails and refuses
to provide the same.
Your complainant further alleges thnt said
stock yards nro necessary for thuronvenionco
and accommodation of the shippers and pub-
Ho ; thatlhcru Is n large number of cattle
raised and fed in the vicinity of Newport ,
and that there would bo at least fifteen cars
of cattle , boors and sheep per month shipped
from snld village of Newport ,
Wherefore your complainant asks thnt you
will Investigate the mutters and things
heroin complained of and issue such order in
the premises as may by you bo found to be
Just and right. U. C. EVANS ,

BIG GAMES AT POKER.
Courting Fickln Fortune on llio River
Yearn A o.
The passengers who travel the Cum
berland those days seldom are reminded
o ( the exciting scenes witnessed around
the gambling tables on the boats which
traversed the stream thirty years ago
says the Nashville American. Gam
bling in thosa days was heavy oven in
the Cumberland , and old rivoi1 men re
tain recollections of them which they
never tire of repeating to choice coter
ies , hut it was on the Mississippi that
the Ideal gambler flourished.
For years gambling on the Mississippi
has been a theme written upon and rout
with interest. How the iuenl plantot
got through with his patrimony ; how
sixty or seventy bales of cotton or fif
teen colored people changed hands in n
few hours ; but the gambler is always
portrayed ns n slender , lithe ana woll-
lormod youth , with black hair , dark
eyes , high boots and ft dirk , n dashing
cavalier sort of a follow that woul (
brook no insult. The bhilT , good-na
tured-go-easy man of about thlrty-livo
that did the winning , has been ignored
Gambling was heavy , and all the larg (
cotton and passenger packets luu
forward ot the cabin n room about 20 bj
25 ( cot , called the social hall. This 1ml
waa lit ted up in the most luxurious
8tylo , with a barjchaira and card-tables
At these tables all day and night the
planters , river merchants and officers
wore wont to tempt fortune. The favorite
ito game was draw poker ; but in those
times the gentlemen would bet on any
thing , from what kind of n Hsh a man
would catch on his line to a stoiuubou
race , nnd the more n man lost the big
per lion ho was. Even now gambling
It carried on to n great extent on nl
rivers , especially on the Red and III !
The most successful gamblers in ante
bolluui days were George Brooks am
"Bullotneck" Greou , so-called from K
bullet that \vnS lodged in His. nook. Tills
latter gentleman played at nnd won in
llio biggest game over played on tlto
Mississippi. It was a gatno of draw
poker between himsoll and three other
planter * . Green had about $120.000 on
board tlio boat , and the other follows
had over-sized his pile , and the gamu
was $100 ante with no limit. Green
hold u remarkable hand , and had
staked his last dollar , but
still no one would "call" him.
So , motioning the raptain of the
vessel to htm , ho asked for n loan , as he
did not want to rtm out of the game.
To this the captain iiH ontod , knowing
Green to bo u very wealthy man , and ho
told the elork to lot him have any
amount. When these preliminaries
wore HOttlod the players wont on raising
the stakes until $1200,000 wore on the
board , when one of the players called ,
nnd Green deliberately laid the cards
facedown on the table and said : ' 'Uoys
if I win this pot I will never turn an
ther card ; " then "showed up" four aces
ml a king , a hand that can't bo beat ,
s a matter of course , winning. It is
stimated that this man won ovorUoO- ,
00 at cards.
The gamblers in the days of slavery
heated , nnd when ho did and was dis-
ovcred at it , ho could bo found in a few
ninnies with a bowlc knlfo or a bullet
n him , more likely the former , for
hen it was a favorite weapon , used
vlth great dexterity , being thrown by
jxperts over twenty foot and driven
hrough a mark on a two-inch plank ,
t is very seldom that a giimo was
ilayed withdut every participant hav-
ng his bowloor revolver on the table ;
jut now the players are on the bunco
rdoif. and the ones they swindle less
ervy. Who that have 'lived in those
oars and the present will not declare
or Monte Carlo days.

Washington Critic : IIo sat On a
jafayolto square bunch , n wooden tooth
pick hold meditatively between his
eoth , the picture o' a clubman who had
Shullling down one of the graveled
uithu was a man a tramp. Ho passed
ho clubman , eyeing him closely , and
tailing in the gloom of a near-by tree ,
ookcd back to whore the clubman sat
ind then retraced his slops.
"Your pardon , sir , " the tramp said in
\ huskv voice , "will you give mo a little
"Weil , what is itV" the clubman asked ,
a shade of annoyance showing in his
jood naturcd features , for , like most
leavy diners , ho disliked anything that
savored of business after dinner. Be
sides , ho thought the man but a beggar
ind disliked his not approaching the
"I'll take but a minute of your time ,
sir , if you'll listen to mo. I catno to
Washington two months ago to got a
jovornmont position. As you see , I
'ailed. ' For the last eight days up to
ast night I have been drunk. I nave
) eon a drinker all mv life , but I never
drank so much nor so steadily before. I
woke up this morning with the sun
shining in my face through the trees of
a park. My clothes wore pawned and
replaced with these rags , my wateh ,
money , everything gene for drink.
"Did you over have manla-a-potuV
No ; I can see that you haven't. Well ,
[ have. Two hours ago I felt it coining
on mo. You can see , " holding up a
tremulous hand , "how unstrung my
nerves are. I can almost see the devils
now as they tighten their lingers on
my throat. And the thirst thirst that
nothing but alcohol will qnonch. You
can not imagine what it is to feel your
self potrillod , powerless , dead to every
thing but pain , while lizardsantstonds ,
worms , snakes , everything slimy , are
twisting , wiggling , squirming over
you , gumming your eyes together , fill
ing your oars with horrible sounds ,
while every joint in your body is rucked
and twisted until it seems ready to come
apart. Your brain on fire , your throat
parched and swollen , and the hot , fetid
breath of devils in your face as they
taunt you with great llagons of liquor ,
held just out of your roach. God , sir !
This and a thousand times this I have
felt , and feel coming over mo again.
"I asked you for advice. Well , I've
got a quarter in my pocket. I can got
a bed for a quarter , or J can got a pint
of whiskey that will keep mo out of
roach of those devils to-night , until I
can get to sleep. But where could I
sloepi1 If I got a bed I can't Bleep un
less I have something to drink. You
see why 1 ask your advice. "
When the tramp began his story the
clubman wore a look of wearied indif
ference. But the tramp talked quickly
nnd excitedly , with jerky , expressive
gestures , his hollow eyes fixed on the
clubman's every look and every motion ,
lending strength to what ho said , until
the clubman seemed fascinated. As the
tramp finished ho got up from the bench
and shook himself like a man ridding
his mind of an unpleasant day dream.
"Ugh , man , you ought to bo an actor.
Hero's 50 cents. No , hero's a dollar ,
and for God's sake don't talk to mo anymore
moro about your delirium tromons.
And the tramp shuttled off through
the deepening gloom , and as ho passed
into the glare of the electric light in
front of the treasury , the dollar and the
quarter jingled merrily in his pocket.
IIo was an ox-actor.

Prince Bismarck's bath is a weighing
chair , covered with rod velvet , of the
most modern constructionand the great
German minister never fails to "try his
weight" at least once a day , or to record
the result of his trial in the small dairy
ho keeps attached by a string to the
arm of the weighing chair for the pur

scaled the somewhat Gargantuan weight
of 257 pounds , but "much has happened
since then , " ns his late fried Lord Bea-

other things the prince has taken not to

of dealing with one's "too , too solid

chancellor was last Friday ublo to an

of triumph , that ho that morning onlv
