their own dressing.
Thcro is much necessity for havinc the
names of streets placed on signs at the
corners. Many of the houses , too , need re
numbering. Some houses have their old
numbers yet upon them. Buildings which
have been moved from one part of tno city to
another , in some cases retain their old num
bers , causing much confusion.

Thcro was a rumor floating around the
streets yesterday which was strong enough
to como singing through the windows of the
postoftlco building , setting the whole forcoof
clerks nnd employes to buzzing , to the effect
that Congressman Head had recommended
Postmaster Bowman's successor. The airy
tongues that bora the rumor along syllabled
the name of Major Lymnn , Iho
trumeroui gentlemen who have boon holdIng -
Ing nloft their lightning rods for n long
tlmo in hope to catch the bolt when It should
Hash , let them drop for u whllo to llml out
who had been hit , The search was long and
fruitless and after it hnd proved vain they
picked up their rods und turned their points
nnd their eyes toward the linpcrterbablo con
gressional cloud whence the coveted bolt
must como. ,
Tlio rumor tingled the cars of a reporter
nnd ho started to hunt it down , Ha put an
his wings und boldly penetrated the sanctum
in the midst of the cloud itself , nnd a very
pleasant colloquy ensued between himself
nnd Congressman Reed. *
" 1 hear you have recommended Major
Lvmnn for the postofllco , " said the scrlbo.
"What havoyou to sny about Itl"
"Well , I'll tell you , " said Judge Heed with
n droll smile , "If you hear any moro about It
nnd anybody asks you just toll thorn for
ino you don't Uuow. "
The gentlemen who are applicants for the
position have notified Congressman Reed
that they still huvo their lightning rods up
nnd will keep them there until next Novem
ber.
ber."Tho postofllco light has many elements of
Interest in it , " said u well posted local poli
tician yesterday. "fho question Involves a
good deal for Congressman Heed himself ,
and I think ho feels the responsibility.
Among the prominent candidates are Stcail-
tnun , Nott , Beers and Major Lyniati. Sto.id-
man hus n strong claim upon , the oflico , and
would muka u popular postmaster , but there
Is n strong faction of his own party working
against him. His chances urn gone. Then
there is Ed. Mott ; he'd bo a splendid post
master , und he's an old soldier , but ho hus
too many opposing him. Heed can't uhooso
him and huvo harmony. Then there is
young Ucers u first rate boy , but bo's un
fortunate enough to ho n nephew of Judge
Heed. If ho was appointed it would rulso a
storm , for ho has never done any
thing for the party. When he was in
I'usoy's bank bo worked for Puscy's election -
tion , und folks thought ho was a democrat.
Then ho kept still until Judge Hoed was
nominated , and then worked for his uncle's
election on the republican ticket. It wouldn't
do to ignore the old party workers und put
a nephew In. "
"What do I think of Major Lyman for
postmaster ! " Woll. there's another rub.
The major has fared pretty well alrcadv at
the bauds of the party , tie is a splendid
lawyer , but not much of u business man , and
like many other great lawyers , a poor finan
cier. It will spoil Judge Hood's chances for
anything.morc , if ho gives Lyman this plum.
I understand that some of the other congress
men are anxious to huvo Lyman elvon tlio
postofllco. Why don't they pitch in and help
get him some good government position ? Put
him on the bench , say in Colonel Keatley's
pluco iu Alaska.1'
"No , it don't look ns if any of these promi
nent candidates can bo named without n
row und a split that would spoil
Judge Heed's * chances for another term
in congress , or for the United States senate.
There's a good deal of bud blood , uud it's
getting baddor. "
"Woll , what about a dark horsol"
"I ruthor think this will bo the solution.
Thcro is D. W.'Bushnell. I have heard that
ho could have it , but won't take It. llo'd
make a capital postmaster. J. M. Troynor
is also named as liable to bo called upon.If
ho would accept It no ought to suit , all
around , or J. C. Mitchell , the ticket agent.
in fact , uny stirring business man , n good
accountant , etc. , would do , but there's been
too much talk and too much pulling over the
old candidates. T noy'vo got jealous of each
other , and are bound to feel sere and make
trouble. YeSj there's James Patterson , of
Stewart Bros. J don't like him , but ho
would make n splendid postmaster. The
woods uro full of them , iu fact , and I think
Judge Heed will avoid trouble by naming
some such dark horse. "

" 1 wish the women of Council Bluffs would
form a rifle club or some sort of an organi
zation that would familiarize them with the
use of .firearms and overcome their timidity
and fear ot such thinirs , " said u prominent
business man yesterday. "Perhaps tuoy
would then carry such things when circum
stances compelled them to go on the streets
unattended ufter nightfall nnd tench a
wholesome lesson to some of the whelps who
make a practice of insulting every woman
who appears ulouo on the streets after dark.
Thcro uro a number of young lady clerks em
ployed In my store , nnd on Saturday und
Monday nights they uro com pellet ! to remain
until after 0 o'clock. Some of them have to
go homo alone , but they always arrange to
go in company with each other , lliu the
presence of ono another does not protect
them and they have been repeatedly in
sulted. Ono young lady who , by the way ,
is BOO u 10 bo married to an cstima-
bio young man , has been particularly

The special board of trade train , for the
Crcston Blue Grass palace , loft the local
depot of the Chicago , Burlington & Qulnoy
nt 7:10 yesterday morning. The railroad
company had agreed to furnish a special
train if 100 fares at half rates were guaran
toed. When the train pulled out there were
22-J passengers on board , and others weru
taken on at the Junction , swelling the num
ber to nearly i50. ! The train consisted of
threo' beautifully decorated reclining chair
cars , two coaches and a baggage cor.
The decorations consisted of festoons of
bunting , potted plants , grasses , etc. , and In
ono ol the cars the festive sunflower pre
dominated. The engine , No. 2b2 , was very
tastefully decorated with bunches of grain
and blue grabs , under the direction of L. E.
Bridenstom. The train was in charge of the
popular conductor , Michael Fnrroll. En
gineer William ICelloy and Fireman Alf
Morganson presided over the machine at the
head of the train. Altogether it was u
pleasant party that loft the Bluffs on the
special , filled with the anticipation of a very
enjoyublo trip.
There were several "Q" ofllcials on the
train , among them being J. M. Bechtelc , of
Burlington , division freight und passenger
agent , who came in Wednesday evening , und
went as far with llio party n Pacific Junc
tion ; W. J. Davenport , general freight und
passenger agent ; M. M. Marshall , general
agent at this point ; J. T. Pugh , general
uitcnt nt Pacific Junction : L. E. Brldonstcin ,
master mechanic , and Gcorgo Webster ,
traveling engineer. Accompanyiac the
partv , us guests of the board of trade , were
the following members of the Omaha board
of trade : W. N. Nnson , C. F. Goodman , F.
E. Biiiloy , C. O. Lobcck , E. H. Wheeler and
Edwin Davis.
A very fust run was made to the Junction ,
where a stop of nearly half nn hour resulted
on account of a hot box on the engine. Hegu-
lar time was made beyond -that point to Hed
Oak , nnd from there to Creston some fast
running was done , arriving at the city of the
Blue Grass palace a few minutes before 11
o'clock. It was expected that there would
bo a reception committee nt the depot , but ,
urobubly owing to some misunderstanding ,
there was a failure to make connections and
n part of the visitors got lost in the shuffle ,
as it were , but eventually turned up at the
fair grounds.
It was to bo expected that there would bo
many llttlo details wanting attention , which ,
owing to incompleteness of preparations ,
always attendant on the first day's exorcises ,
hud been overlooked.
Soon after arriving at Creston the party
took carriages , und escorted by Dalbey's
Hilitary band , of this city , Company D ,
Fifth regiment , I. N. G. , of Creighton , Crns-
tou Fire department , nnd Crcston Cornet
band , drovooutto the grounds , where , after
n brief inspection of the colcbr.itocl palace ,
the addresses of the day were mado. , .
The following gcntlcmou occupied" the
speakers stand : Governor Larraboa and
staff ; W. L. Alexander , adjutant general ;
G. P. Hnnawalt , surgeon general ; Jonn
Duughorti , colonel and aide ; W. W. Ellis ,
commissary general ; W. C. Wyman , captain
and military secretary ; Colonel O'ICeefo ;
aldo ; Governor Thayer and staff ; General
A. V. Cole , adjutant general ; Colonot E. M.
Gorvcll , quartermaster general ; Colonel M.
W. Stone , surgeon general ; Colonel H. S.
Hotchkiss , inspector general ; President
Harsh , Hon. Lucius Wells und other repre
sentative citizens.
J. B. Harsh , of Creston , prosldont of tlio
Blue Grass league of southwestern Iowa ,
was master of ceremonies. The exorcises
opened with proynr by Kev. W. S. Hooker ,
of Creston , after which Governor Larrabco ,
of Iowa , wes introduced to make the dedi
catory address. His remarks consisted
mainly of statistics and politics , for which
ho was severely criticized oy many of these
In attendance , who thought that at best the
governor showed very boor taste In taking
advantage of such a gathering to make a
political harangue. Ho spoJto but a short
tlmo , however , when Governor Thayer , of
Nebraska , was introduced ,
The Nebraska covornor spoke for about
half an hour , his remarks being in the nature
of a rovlow of the progress made by Iowa
In the past twonty-flvo years , with many u
good word for Nebraska thrown in at in-
tcrvuls. Ho was frequently applauded , and
bis speech seemed to put the crowd iu a very
happy mood. At the conclusion of his re
marks the visitors sought the dining hulls
and lunch counters.
In the afternoon the formal address of
welcome was made by Hon. John
A. Patterson. mayor of Creston.
It was briefly responded to by Hon. Lucius
Wells , vice president of the Blue Grass
league for Pottawattainio county , who , in
conclusion , introduced Colonel W. F.
Sapp , of Council Blulfs. At the hands of
this gentleman , the advantages of I'ottawat-
tumlo were portrayed in glowing colors.
Other short addresses were made by Spencer
Smith nnd D. A. Farrell , after which the as
semblage was dismissed , and the remainder
of the day devoted to sight seeing.
The displays made by the various counties
were in ovor.v way creditable to ttioui. and
were of such size und vurlety'us to raiulro
at least tinco hours for a thorough inspec
tion. There were fifteen counties repre
sented , ouch occupying u section by itself.
Of course , the center of attraction for the
Council Blutfs Jologatlon was the I'ottawat-
tiunio exhibit , and It was of such a nature
that no resident of that county need have
any feeling , except one of pride , concerning
it. It was without exception the finest dis
play of general products made by any county.
The exhibition was varied , Including vege
tables , corn , small grain , fruit and flowers ,
Thcro were 17".l varieties of apples ami sixty-
two of grapes , In this exhibit was the
longest blue grass shown by uny county , u
bunch iiitio foot tall being displayed. Potta-
wattamlo also had the banner corn stalk , it
measuring bixteon foot , ono inch In halghth ,
and ten feet to the center of the first oar.
A twenty pound boot and a twonty-llvo
pound oabbago were among the attractions
of the vegetable display , and a piece of grape
vine fourteen feet long , containing sixty-two
bunches ot grapes , UUH n feature of the frut |
exhibit.
But it muitt not bo inferred that Pottawut-
tauila bad everything her own way ia the
mnttT of fine dl pl .ui. Although she Ir-d In
the wuy of n acnJnil exhibit , there were
others which had'llfttecr special displays.
Appar.ooso cotTpW had a largo exhibit of
coal from the Combrvlllo mines.
Mills county tmulo a heavy grass exhibit
and n largo fruit display.
Taylor county triidb a very fine poncral ex
hibit , showing mnb handsome Individual
specimens of vojrutah'e.i. '
The specialty fnuluro ot tlio Lucas county
exhibit wns a larnoi display of pencil sketches
by pupils of the Chnrhon public schools.
Adnir county showed the finest display of
grasses , the prlntjijSal fcnturcn being a sheet )
nnd horse neatly manufactured from small
grain nnd grass.
In the Clurlto 'tfrtunty exhibit were Homo
hnndsomo specimens nf ctraw drapery nnd a
cabinet of intricate Joiner work. The latter
contained over G.000 pieces of wood. Including
ninety different kinds. It was made by J. L.
Butler , ot Osccola.
Warren county made n fine showing of
various woods , tlio , vegetables nnd fruit.
Tbo MadUon countv exhibit was mostly
wood , Including a cabin from Mncksburp ,
built of twenty-six different kinds of wood all
grown in that county. The other exhibits In
this section were stone and grass.
Montgomery county hnd a very tastily ar
ranged display of grass and fruits.
Adams county had n flno exhibit , of apples ,
corn , snmll grain , potatoes , wood and drain
tlio. A handsome colling made entirely of
small grain , in panels , attracted a great deal
of attention.
The Cass county dlsplav wns late in arriv
ing , nnd wns not unpacked until late In the
day. It consisted almost entirely of manu
factured articloi from Atlantic , Including
starch , soap , condition powders and canned
goods.
Decatur county showed grass and corn In
profusion.
Next to Pottawnttamio county Pngo county
had the finest general exhibit In the palaco.
A handsome modern cottage made of corn
wns among the exhibits. Thcro wuro splendid
specimens of vegetables , ilno fruit , oxcelhint
brick nnd wood.
Notwithstanding the general excellence of
the displays of other counties , the palm for
nttructlvoncss must bo awarded to Union
county , the homo of the blue grass palace.
It was not the variety of articles ,
as * grass mid gram formed the
creator part of the nxhlblt , but
the muny odd designs into which they were
manufactured. Chairs , cradles , stands , spin
ning wheels the wheel ot commerce , god
dess of corn and tillage , iiro place , flro
screen , moss covered buckets , etc. etc. , were
there In endless variety , which caused this
display to bo an object of continual Interest.
An immense pyramid of vegetables was also
shown by Union county. The greater part
of this exhibit was prepared by the city of
Crcston , with the assistance of nfow farmers
l ? the Immodlato vicinity , and is a
splendid nttributo of the skill and
Ingenuity of her enterprising citizens.
Itvns quite natural that tlio Union county
exhibit , or , moro correctly , the Creston ex
Inbit , should surpass all others , us articles of
homo manufacture could bo shown which it
would bo impossible to transport from a .dis
tance , but it must ho said to the croait of the
ladles of Crcston that they labored long and
faithfully , not so much to eclipse all others
as to make their initial Blue Grass palace
exposition a grand and overwhelming suc
cess. The opening was most auspicious , and
promises great things.
