Montgomery , Mill * of Mnislmll uud 1'oyzioer
of Tutmi , who bociuno faint hearted end
nUunprdcd to the rnllroad Mdo of the llqlit nt
the Html critical moment , are being "roasted" '
without morcy. The rullioadti lire utterly
disregarding the schedule established by the
commissioners and charging an excess of
Borne t5 ! to 40 per cent , which the shippers are
p.iylnguudcr proUst. Mcnnwlillo the law
yers are making up the case to bo presented
to the Buprcmo court in the October term
covering the points sustained by Judge
lalruI ! In liU injunction decision. Should
the nuprcmo court of HUH btnto do-
cida against the railroads as it most likely
will an appeal will bu taken to the United
States supreme court and a final decision
will not be reached for years. The railroads
tire now talking "compromiso" and
their attorneys Imprudently suggest to
tlio rommihsloncrs that If the people will
repeal the taw , the roads will como down in
their i a tea to a reasonable iiguro. Governor
Larrabeo Is watching tha contest with a
great deal of Inteiest , butdcclinesto Indicate
whether or not ho will convene the legisla
ture In extru Bcssion If no other solution of
the problem ii reached. The backhono of
the recreant senators has been wonderfully
RtltTcncd by the unequivocal action of the
utate convention , and oven conservnto sen-
nlors like Hutchinson , of Wnpello , arc now
rcadv to give the railroads such a dose of
positive law In the slmpo of an iron-clad
tariff as they will not bo likely to forget.
It is said that hundreds of cases of o.xtor
tion , under the schedule prepared by the
commissioners , nro being prepaicd by lawyers
in all parts of the state , and thu prospect , for
no end of railroad legislation In the near
future Is very piomislng.
The railroad attorneys realize the ticklish
situation in which they have pluc < > d them
selves by refusing to obey the schedule , and
linvo tried to onjoln ono attorney Hon.
C'hnrles A. HiKhop- from bringing suits of
thin character. Thlx unheard-of jnocccdliifr of
endeavoring to prevent the cltUcns of a
Btato from enforcing its penal laws increase1)
the feeling of opposition to the roads and
will only result in embittering the struggle.
Of course no court not absolutely under cor
poration dictation would grant or sustain
mich an injunction , and the railroad attorneys
who suggested this move utterly mistake the
temper of the people and exhibit their reel ;
less dlircgaidof public opinion. The Mil
wuukco attorneys seem to appreciate the sit

The state meeting of the Farmers' Alll-
fini'G was hold upon the fair grounds thin
wei'lc. About ono hundred mid lifty dele-
( 'ntes were present , lepiciontlng wt'ry part
of the stato. Notwithstanding this Is a pres
idential yi'ar.pnrtisan ntnfu was lost sight of
in the deliberations of the convention. Thu
resolutions adopted were more radical than
last j car. The lailroad legislation and the
action of the commissioners were heartily
endorsed ; u 2 cent , f.uo was demanded and
the taxation of money and money credits.
Although the convention was inado up largo.
ly of democrats and grcenbaekers the admin
istration of Governor Larrabeo was squarely
endorsed by n unanimous voto. Kosolutions
wcro also adopted requesting the candidates
forcongioRS to piudgo themselves to support
uuti-monopoly measures. The defeat of Gen
eral A. J. UaUer for the nomination of attor
ney general was greatly deplored and the
candidates for this position oujtho different
tickets wcro requested to define their posi
tions and plcdgo themselves to sustain the
railroad commissioners. A few hot-headed
members wanted to bring out Baker as an
independent candidate , but this suggestion
was not accepted by the conservative element.
It is very certain , however , that tha alliance
will watch the actions of Mr. Stone , as attor
ney general , with n sharp eye , and should ho

The alliance declined In favor of lifting the
present contest lor those positions above the
piano of partisanship by the election of
Campbell , Smith and Uey. This action will
Insure the defeat of both Wills and Lund , for
the alliance vote drawn from democrats and
Ereonbiickcrs will more than offset any pos-
ulhlo defection of railroad republicans. The
prohibitionists will also support the republi
can nominees. 'While the election of Smith

UNCLE SAM'S NEW FIGHTER.
What tlif Iilnc of Battleship Maine
Will lie When Unlit.
In ISfiO it Is expected thut the pride of
the American uiivy will bo the warship
Mtiino. The Mnino does not amount to
uuch as yet , but hundreds of men tire
limiting 'the Brooklyn navy yard hum
with the industry that will in time re
sult in the grandest Bhii ) over turned
out in this country. The luaino is going
to bo n lighting ship. Unlike the At
lanta , Bo.ston and Chicago , which tire
designed as fawt armed cruisers , the
Maine will bo a regular line of battle
ship. She will bo fast and still bo a ,
The Maine is the first big ship to bo
built ut the Brooklyn navy yard in many
years , and thu consequence is , a livelier
btato of affairs exists in the yard than
has boon known in borne time. It will
take at leaht two years to build her.
Since the wnr little has been done at
the Crooklln navy yard except to put
the finishing touches upon vonsols. The
Atlanta mid Boston were completed
thnro , and the Chicago is lying in the
yard now , receiving her finishing
It talces iv great deal of machinery to
build a Ing bhlp niachinery , too. of a
complicated kind. There must be almost
a complete rolling mill to roll the iron
into shape. There must be big ma
chines to punch rivet holes , immcn&c
steam hammers to pound the iron , and
great pinners to piano it. To build
solid foundations for these heavy ma
chines , to arrange shafting and tram
ways , overhead , lakes considerable time ,
skill and experience. That is what is
being done at prooont. Four big ahods
have been constructed , and in each
borne branch of the work that is to re-
ult in the big ship will bo done , fn
another month work will bo actively
begun in every department , and little
bv little the parts of the monster war
rior will bo completed.
In order to see how a big ship is built
a reporter paid a visit to the yards.
The first thing ho did was to seek out
Master Shipwright J. II. Mageo.
"Talk about clockwork , why clock
work is nothing to building ono of these
ships , ' ' said the veteran bhipwright , as
ho hurried over to where a gang of men
wore finishing two long and narrow
tanks. "These are acid tanks , and here
is where the first work on the ship
Thctic tanks tire six feet deep , about
three feet wide and about ten feet long.
They are placed in line with each other.
The iron for the ship is received in
sheets. It is loaded on small railroad
cars and pushed , by men , to the big
fehed , at the end of which are the acid
tanks. The sheets nro stored in this
shed until they are wanted. Whoa
this time comes one of the tanks is
filled with acid and the other with
water. The sheets of iron are loaded
on a car again and rolled up to the
tanks. By machinery they arc raised
from the car and lowered into the aeid.
This cleans away nil the dirtt rust and
foreign substance upon the iron. The
shoots are lifted from the aoid and
swung by means of an overhead tram
way to the water tank and rinsed olf.
Then the iron is bright and clean and
and ready for working.
In the big shed next , to the storage
shed are to bo the rollingniuohlncb , the
big planers , steam hammers , etc. Some
of the machinery is ready , and the rest
Is being placed as rapidly as it arrives.
An immense engine will furnish the
force to drive all of the machinery in
this department. The boilers are al
ready in place. The biggest planer In
the United State will be among the ma
chinery to bo found hero.
The preparations that nro being
made are not temporary ones. They are
permanent , and no doubt if the Maine
turns out to bo ns great a ship as it is
hoped she will , more of the armored
cruisers will be constructed at the
But the most interesting part of the
preparatory work for the Maine isboing
done under the supervision of George
MeMullen , the master joiner of the
yard. Ills men are constructing the
frames for molds. Every piece of iron
that goes into the ship must bo
"framed. " A trip to the mold loft is
ono of great interest. The loft Is a room
of great size , and on thu lloor are laid
out two big block- sections of boards.
K-oh ono is fifty fcven feet wide and
thirty-throe feet deep , the exact dimen
sions of the Maine. On this block surface -
face In white lines , nro marked off all
tha friitnos that are to ho constructed.
It is a wonderful line piece of work , anil
indicates how minute and exact must bo
all the calculations that enter into the
work. The framus nro made of hnlf-
Inch plno HtulT. Men are busy turning
them out. and many Imvo already been
completed. Eaoh piceo Is numbered on
the diagram , and us it is turned into
wood the numbers are transferred , as
for instance : "I'mino 41 ! Mnino. '
'L'he3o > designations are marked In plair
letters that will not rub off.
The keel blocks of the Maine are al
ready laid under the big shod , where
she will gradually take shape. The
blocks indicate the length of the ellip
alid show the graceful curve of sloir
rtnd fctern. All Of the preparatory work ,
such as getting In the machinery anil
placing it , is under the supervision o ;
Master Shipwright Magce , and a busy
irmn lie Is , too.
While considerable attention la being
paid to the Mains , it is by no moans all
that is going on in the yard. Work i
being done on the Chicago and the iron
monitors Terror and Miantonomah
The Terror arrived nt the yard a fov
days ago. She. and the Mluntonomal
will in time bo lilted for boa , but a
there is no demand for their service
now the work will not bo hurried.
\Yhon completed the Maine will b <
a 0,000-ton vessel. She will bo supplied
with the heaviest guns , such as the twc
eight-inch guns ou tile Boston. She
will have two turrqls ono tit the
bo\v Utid the other nt the stern , not
nmidshlps. The ono at tlio bow will bo
close to the port side , while in the stern
tlio turret will hug tlio slur board sldo
of the vessel.
The llohtou is now lying1 nt the ynrd.
It was n lively scene that mot the ro-
porlor'a oycs when ho bonrdud her. The
suitors hud just flnishod thuir midday
meal. They wore cleaning tiwny the
swinging tables iinil washing thodlshos.
Everything was busMonnd scorning con-
fusion. The rattle of the dishes min
gled with the noisy hum of conven > n-
tioii and merry laughter.
The aroma of the after dinner pipes
van distinguishable nbovo everything.
Icro six tars were sitting in the shadow
.if ono of the big guns , engrossed in
iheckors. Four are playing , the rub
ier checker boards thread upon the
leek , and two are looking on. There
were two more silting under the frown-
'ng mouth of another gun , playing
ini'ds. othor.s were simply laying back
enjoying their pipes. Tlio noon hour
on board u man of war is an interesting
me. The men enjoy it because it is ati
lour of relief from stict diHipHno , and
jocauw } the hearty food which the gov-
jrnmcnt furnishes them braces them up
'or the further work of the day.
Xlio Dynamite Cruiser "Vesuvius. "
American Magiw.iiio : The "Vesuvius"
, vus launched at Cramp's shipyard April
J8 , and is intended to demonstrate the
practibility of Captain Zaliimki's dyna
mite gun afloat in naval warfare. She
is a small , nuifclless vessel of 725 tons
displacement , long nnd nrrow-lSko ,
drawing only niuo feet of water , and
with powerful screw triple oxpiinsion
engines designed to give a speed of
twenty knots. Her length is two hun
dred and fifty-two foot and breadth
twenty-six feet. A small central super
structure and a thinly-armored conning
tower nro built upon the upper deck ,
which is live feet above the water lino.
The after part of iho ship is devoted to
lho quarters for the captain nnd
olllcors , the middle compartments to the
engines and boilers , and the forward
compartments to the crow nnd to the
Llireo fifteen-inch dynamite guns , which
ire built into the snip at a fixed eleva
tion of 18s , projecting above the upper
dock near- the bow , and extending
down nearly to the Keel. The annlo of
elevation has been recently increased
from 10 ° to 18 ° , to diminish the
chances of ricochet nnd thus insure tlio
torpedo action of the shell. The guns
u-o sidn by side , and must bo pointed by
.ho helm , the steam sticring-genr and
Lwln screws contributing quick turning
powers. The guns nro smoothbores ,
lifty-four foot long , made in sections of
thin cast-iron. It isas yet thought best
not to rillo these guns , as it would cause
additional strain upon the gun and
projectile , and increase , by friction , the
iient and consequent danger. To keep
iho shell steady In its flight
there is n tail tube with
spiral vanes attached , which act
muL'h on the principle of the11
feather on an arrow. The shell
is made of thin drawn brass tubing , and
is fourteen and three-quarter inches in
diameter , and about seven feet long ,
exclusive of the tail tube. The opera
tion of loading is very simple. Com
pressed air is the firing medium. A
storage reservoir near the keel contains
air at n pressure of 1,000 pounds n square
inch. From the storage reservoir the
air is admitted to the firing reservoir
near the breech of the gun. A valve
admits the air from the firing reservoir
to the gun barrel in the rear of the
shell , and starts the latter on its jour
ney. The man at the firing lover con-
Lrols the valve , so that it may bo opened
to any ox tent ho may desire ,
thus regulating the amount of
air that is to bo admitted to
the gun barrel. The greater the amount
admitted the greater will bo the ranco
of the projectile. Experiments will
readily determine the si'/o of the open
ing for any desired range , thus bringing
the gun under the complete control of
Was America liver Discovered ?
At the time when Columbus started
in search of the now world , nearly
every man , woman and child in Europe
insisted that there was no new world to
discover. When they came back ,
crowned with success , a largo proportion
tion of these good people adhered to
their theory ; and if they were alive to
day many of them would doubtless in
sist that America had never boon dis
covered nt all. A man will give up
anything in the world more readily
than n pet theory. For example , look
at the individuals who still maintain
that consumption is incurable. Dr.
Piorco's Golden Medical Discovery has
cured thousands upon thousands of cases ,
and will euro thousands more , but these
people can't ' give up the point. Never
theless the "Discovery" will euro any
case of consumption , if taken in timo.
A Patent IilchtnliiK Calculator.
Chicago Times : About a year ago ,
Dorr E. Felt , of Chicago , perfected n
little machine that does away with the
"lightning calculator" and is destined
to greatly simplify the handling and
use of figures. The machine has boon
named lho "comptometer , " and is ready
for the market. It is about the size of
an unabridged dictionary , is operated
by numbered keys , very much as lypo-
wrilorsnro , and seems capable of n largo
amount of work. It adds , subtracts ,
divides and multiplies with equal facil
ity , and with a rapidity in pracliced
hands almost incredible. The only
thing against its popularity , probably
will bo the cost , which from the fact
that it is of Intricate construction will
There have been half a dozen ma
chines invented intended to do the sumo
Class of work , but noilo of them has been
successful , or even reached popular use.
The Felt invention , however , differs
from them all in that it is operated on
tha unit syBlom , and lhat when tlio ad
dition of a column of figures has been
made it is not necessary to turn the reg
istering wheels backward nnd com
mence on another , but column nf tor col
umn can bo added and the machine will
carry the additions to any extent. As
an example , suppose it is proposed to
the operator begins with the units nnd
successively depresses the keys 7 , 0nnd
! i In the unit column , and the machine
registers 10. The next operation Is to
commence on the column of tons by
striking the 2 , 4 , and 8 keys , nnd the
result of the additions is 14. while the
register IB 160. The hundred column is
next taken , nnd keys ! ! , 0 , nnd 1 are de-
presfcod , nnd the machine by its cumula
tive Work registers 1-150 , which is the
result of the addition. The numbers
may bo added by either vertical or her
izontal columns with equal case , and
lho machine is unerring.
It is almost Impossible to convoy n
correct idea of the mechnnism of the
aovicp , or yet to explain its workings ir
detail bo that the ronQorcnn understand
it. In fact , it must bo seen , and then
oven uttlcb * one's mind runa to mechan
ics and figures some explanation will bo
nccetsary to a clear conception of its
usefulness. As has boon illustrated , it
ndds with facility , doing nil of the
figure-making Itself , nnd it multiplies
divides nnd subtracts just as readily
though the processes ar
nero Intricate and difficult to explain.
'or those latter operations the use of
, ho keys Is varied somewhat , but they
nro so marked that there is little trouble
vith them , and it is claimed that a few
essons Is nil that is necessary to make
an export of a person with ordinary In-
clllgence. Mr. Felt has started west to
exhibit his invention and has already
succeeded In gottfng It In several of the
departments at Washington , where It is
said to bo giving abundant satisfaction ,
lot only on account of Us accuracy , hut
ts grout Bi > ecd and ease of operation.
Klectrlo Onrn VH. Cable Trnctlon.
Electrical World : It scorns that the
struggle for supremacy botwcen electric
mil cable traction for street cars , al
though practically settled so far as the
jlcctrlc side is concerned , is still a sub-
cct for the advocates of the cable , who
roftibo to recogni'/o defeat. Wo have
so often pointed out the advantages of
slcctrlclty that it is needless to recall
, hem again here , and wo only draw at
tention to the matter now In order to
noet the remarKs which have boon made
: iv an engineer at Kansas City , who , as
one of his arguments , puts forth the fact
.hat the electric current cannot compote
pete with the cable , because the latter
can pull cars up grades ns stoeep as 18
per cent1 , a thing , ho says , that the
olectrio car cannot do. The criti
cism is perfectly correct , and wo
are not at all desirous to see any elec
trical engineer undertaking to run an
electric railway on roads having 18 per
cent grades. It Is obvious that in such
situations the cable is in the right
place , and is probably to bo preferred
to any other method davised up to the
present time , so far as wo know. But ,
as experience has demonstrated , grades
up to 0 and 10 per cent , which are or
dinarily as great as need bo considered ,
can bo successfully mounted by the
electric car , and the economy of tlio
system on such roads has long ago boon
proved to bo greater than that which
can bo obtained from the cable. To
argue , therefore , from an extreme and
special case is avoiding the main ques
tion , and oven if such arguments nro
successful for a time , they can only
slightly keep back the final acceptance
of electricity as the general source of
power for street car traction.
When two young people of dissimilar
sex. with a singleness of purpose and a
doubloncss of affection , sit up with each
other , and so on , and when the clock
strikes a dozen , says : "Is it possible ? "
and she says : ' 'Why , I didn't know it
was so Into ! " you may draw your con
clusions that very soon a united couple
will bo buying some furniture.

BOYS SCHOOL SUITS ,
We are showing a larger stock of 13oys' ami Children's Clothing than all our com
petitors combined , and feel satisfied that we can "lead the trade" in this department of
Clothing never was as cheap as it is now , and never did wo mark our goods with
such a small profit as wo did this season. The larger the business wo do the cheaper
we can afford to sell.
We will inaugurate the fall season with a grand Boys' Clothing Sale , and as at the
opening of schools , boys' clothing are mostly in demand , wo propose to make the com
ing week the most memorable one in our boys department. AVe moan to surprise you
with our bargains and that every garment that wo sell shall be a big advertisement for
Here are only a few of the bargains which wo offer this week :
Two-piece Children's Suit , size ! to 1H , at $1,00. . Wo cannot do-scribo this suit ,
but we ask you to come and bee it. You will be astonished what a suit you can get in
our store for $1.00. Other houses would charge $ L\00 for such a suit and pretend to
give you a bargain.
Two piece Children's Suits , of good cotton mixed Cassimore , heavy weight , nice
patterns and well made , at $1.60.
But the greatest of all bargains is the Knee Pants Suit wo are offer this season at
$2.5O. This is a suit we are proud to show. To call the material "all wool" would
not mean much , as we have sold all wool suits at that price before , but wo can truth
fully say we never offered SUCH a suit for the money. This suit is conscientiously
made with special view to wear. The material is honest all wool cassimoro no shoddy.
The pants are made with double thickness of cloth in knee and seat , and every seam is
sewed strong. It is a perfect wear resistor. Besides that it is neatly plaited and fin
ished. Other houses would charge $5.00 for such a suit.
We are equally well prepared to fit larger boys from 12 to IS , and prices are made
just the way the Nebraska Clothing Company does business GIVING GREAT
EST VALUE FOR LEAST MONEY.
STRICTLY ONE PRICE.
