Now Is the time that a good warm , serviceable overcoat requires your most serious consideration , You may reason that your old one. although threadbare and rent , will answer for this winter yet. But you lost sight
of the fact that a cold is easily contracted , but not so readily removed , and the mere pittance required in providing yourself with adequate protection from severe weather , will go out double and three fold to your physi
cians to remedy your ill-advised savings. Your health and comfort , and that of those who are ncur and dear to you , should claim your first consideration , and we are enabled to offer that which will make this duty an
easy matter for you , for we have the largest and handsomest stock and selection of overcoats to be found anywhere. We can supply you with good serviceable and comfortable top coats for a very .small outlay , to the
handsomest and most stylish fur lined garments manufactured. We guarantee absolutely the quality of each and every garment to be just what we represent them to be , and our assertion means more than idle words ,
for we back up our every representation with a return of your money if you find them different in the slightest degree or not up to the standard of quality we claim.

There ore now about fifteen hundred
laborers employed by tno city. It is believed
that there will bo plenty for them to do for
the next thirty days. Fully five hundred
teams are being used and will bo kept
steadily employed until stopped by Jack
"There is $23,000 worth of work yet to
bo finished this year , " said City Engineer
Tillson , "and I nm satisfied tbo
greater portion of It would bo
completed tusfdo of tno next thirty days.
After the- frost nettles in the ground there
will bo no work done except possibly to lay a
liltlo stone whore the concrete is already
placed and to lay briclr. During the last

was Friday , when wo had the heavy snow
Allpui'rt Jj.iborlnjr Slrn.
"Alleged laboring men , " airt a hard
worker to-day , "have organized themselves
into different associations. I don't blame
them for that. I like to sea organization and
believe it to bo a good thing , but when fol
lows get together and nrganlzo for money ,
it hurts the ccnulno organizations ami makes
n farce of the true , blue blood. It is true
that such associations and organizations
spring up Just before every election , but thu
organizers eel till the money and no person
in particular the benefits.
The delegates who attended the conven
tion of the brotherhood of engineers at Den
ver will return homo to-day.
It was a long nnd lively session. From
Omaha tticro wore three delegates , nnd each
of thn gentlemen worked hard and continu-
ou * for Vromun.
After Arthur wan selected chief last Mon
day the announcement wns received with the
greatest satisfaction , although Arthur is not
the most popular man who could bo named.
In speaking of the battle before Arthur
was nominated , thu Denver News has this to
say of the situation : "Several ot Mr. Yro-
inan'i henchmen wore seen reading the an
nouncement that pictured the Vcdder boom
larger than that of their favor-
Un. Widowed adjectives and ornliancd
nouns , steeped in profanity , llo.itod
through the Markhaui lobby , from
the exeitod lips of the Vroman enthusiasts.
When minicienlly calmed tbo stalwart John
son , manugor of the Vroman wing , rubbed
the creasus from his shirt front und said that
the Yrouion men would , if necessary , die in
the last ditch with their colors Hying and
liana playing. Ho claimed that victory was
in sight , undi predicted Woman's election bv
n majority of fourteen voles. Quo veto urn-
lority is flufllclont to elect.
Mr. Ycdder was tbo secona choice of the
Vroman constituency , Mr. Ycdder is a sala
ried chairman of the Could system griev
ance committee ana a iiiiin of sound Judg
ment. AsMo from hla i-orsoual popularity
his claims uro really promoted by tno fact
that the oflleo of grant ] chief has baen held
by nn eastern man for over twenty yours.
Cleveland's selection is a foregone conblu-
slon , as It is the most accessible railway cen
ter to grievance euibasaaJora ou their way
east to BOO heads of the railway xvorld , who
reside mostly cast of the Mississippi river.
It Is also central for thu southern mid other
members who deslra to confer with the
trraad chief. Geography has successfully
knocked out thu chance * of Omaha aud Den
ver , while the Illinois conspiracy law has
put Chicago's chances In sweet repose. "
"There is no chance for us follows to
kick. " said n member of the brotherhood.
"Of course I don't want to bo quoted , but us
western fellows wanted Yrotnun. Artnur is
all right on some things , but we are not sat
is lied with tlio way ho has carried out a ma
jority of his instructions.
"Of course , " said the gentleman , "we do
not want to bo ulaccd on record as saying
anything against the conduct of the conven
tion , but you will find a whole lot of western
fellows who are opposed to Arthur. "
A reporter for Tun Bnn has carefully can
vassed the situation and.finds that nearly nil
of the western delegates are sorry that
Yroman was not elected.
A I.ahor Candidate.
John II. Ames , the labor candidate for su-
crutno Judge of Nebrasa , was born in Wind-
ham county , Vt. , February 0 , 1847 , being
the youngest of u family of three boys. His
parents removed , to Cbautauqua county , N.
Y. , when ho was seven years of ago , where
ho was reared on a farm , being employed
with the duties of farm Hfo until ho was
seventeen years of ago.
"Ho attended tiio common schools , " says
the Nebraska Laborer , "und at seventeen
entered Fredynia academy , fVedonia , N. Y. ,
where ho received an , academical education.
After graduating from this school ho con
fined his attention to the study of law.
Ho enrolled himself as n student with the
law firm of Shannon & Hcott , nt Forcstvillo ,
N. Y. . consisting of Daniel .Shannon , now
surrogate of that county , and Captain Na
than S. Scott , for the past twenty years a
resident of this city.
Ho was admitted to the bar at Buffalo , N.
Y , , in May. 181J8 , ami immediately opened a
law ollico nt Dunkirk , in that state.
In politics Mr. Ames was a republican ,
until the presidential campaign of IhSI.
Mr. Ames has been county attorney , nnd
was n member of a commission appointed in
1877 , to lovise the statutes of Nebraska. "
"Tno signs of the times , " says B. O. Lit-
tlelleld , "aro hopeful for the ultimate
triumph of tlio principles contended for by
the great labor organizations , All that has
prevented its accomplishment years ago is
the fatal tendency of labor organi/altons to
quarrel among themselves , thereby dividing
their strength and causing them to full un
cusy prey to their oppressors , The recent
conference between the Kninlits of LnLor
nnd the American Federation of Labor , the
two leading organizations nf the United
States , was u stop in the right direction , und
the harmony and mutual concessions , which
characterized the meeting , auger well for
the future success of thu movement so de
voutly hoped for by nil frimids of labor. It
is to bu hoped time thu next conference of
these two great wings of the labor partv will
witness the consummation of the movement
for the unification of iheso organizations
whoso alms und objects are in most rcsuects
"Tbo plasterers of Omaha , " said n well-
Known contractor , "aro altogether too inde
pendent. They do good work , get good pay ,
nnd the Journey men who really want to
work are never out of employment in the
season when they uro supposed to work.
"Hut tlio boys are urone to kick on small
matters , " continuml the contractor , "and
for that reason considerable work is re
tarded , "
A union plasterer was soon by n reporter
after the above iuicrviow. The laborer
said : "Wo huvu had little or no strife witu
ourbDSses this season. Nothing unreason
able hits been asked , and every demand has
been uccoaod to , barrini ; a few instances ,
whore lUo work was only checked for a duy. "

The carriagomakors of Omaha will soon
organize a union. Mr. G. A. Gooser , a clear-
maker who lives at 103 South Thir
teenth street , has tendered his ser
vices to assist in the organization ,
aud is now laying his plans to
malco the union a success. There are about
ono hundred carriage makers In this city ;
and although , they uro all competent and
thorough workmen , there has never j ct been
an effort made to organize a union. It is ex
pected that at n meeting to bo held this week
there will bo at least fifty carriage makers
present. A notice of the place of meeting
will bo published in Tim BBE.
Whoso Turn Next ?
The political labor clement has split. A
week ago several representatives of various
trades unions got together and endorsed a
t'cket headed by Bovd. Two nights later
another crowd of alleged laborers got to
gether and endorsed a ticket headed by Co-
burn. Such has been tno daily campaign in
so far as the ofllcc of sheriff goes.
Laboring men who have teams nnd who
live in Omaha are making strencous objec
tions to people who live outside of the city
and in Iowa doing day labor hero and carryIng -
Ing their earnings to another town. This
matter will bo investigated bolhby the board
of public works aud by thu city council.

the men who tnko care of the horse and

OMAHA , Nob. , Nov. 3. To the Editor of
THE BHK : The unwarranted attack of Mrs.
Helen M. Cougar upon tbo editor of Tim
BUB merits the contempt of all right-minded
Christian people. Her brazen and entirely
masculine demeanor , from beginning to end ,
is that of an adventuress 'seeking notoriety ,
nnd is no moro woithy of notice than any
other weak minded fanntlu verging nigh
onto Insanity , unless it bo In pity.
What of tier homo , with the wife and
mother , if such she unfortunately is ( un-
: forlunuu > for the husband and children ) . I
say , what of her homo with the wife and
mother storming over this country in u man
ner that , were she a man , she would not
only bo ousted by the people everywhere ,
but would bo branded as a common coward
I am in favor of prohibition as against
high license ; I also believe that prohibition
prohibits , nud oven though it did not pro
hibit , | f it is wrong to sell liquor it Is do-
cldedly wren ? to receive pay for n license
to soil it. But this is a frue country , in
habited by millions of liberty-loving people ,
every ono of whom is entitled to ills or her
opinion. Mrs. Gougar's actions are moro In
keeping with the slums of the world , the
most vile , if you please , who carry out their
ends with violence and bard words , than
with the advocate of a Christian association ,
in trying to convince the people of their
errors by heaping upon thorn such epistles
and Jail-bird language and limitations to ucU
of violence and common brnwls. .
Mrs. Gougar will rum tbo tempcratiDO cause
in Nebraska , and if the W. C. T. U. havoun
eye to their interests , they will throw her

I bavo only ono moro statement to- make ,
nnd in doing so I echo the sentiments of
hundreds of temperance people in this state

When the world's llrst great westward voy
Sailed out in faith to this new continent.
Whither ho felt all his life-current stir ,
Though knowing not unto what place ha
One day , no land in sight , his grating \cc\ \
Uonortud shoals ; the unconscious vessel
Across , nor hoard tbo grinding sands rovcal
Thu secret of the coast beyond them hid.
Ho drifted past , though waif of leaf and bird ,
Floating und fluttering after , bade him stay ;
Vague invitations every where ho hoard ;
By hope's own dazzling glamour led astray , .
He landed on an Island's rim , nor guessed
How nearly ho had won his larger quest.
Alas ! the dumb , inscrutable human sea
That will not toll us of the shares wo seek I
Us Jealous waves , in moaning mockery ,
But Just returned from pressing a blue
Against fresh roses blown fnrus. unseen ,
In our own realm , that never will DO ours ,
Though through the starry dusk nil night wa
And , unaware , brcatho balsam from tbo
And feel its soft mists wrapping us around ,
And hear far , wavo-toisua voices wlilspor-
From some dim bourne beyond the horizon' *
Heart's kindred starving for the love we
brim ; ,
And wo for theirs nn uiircaped harvest )

And yet , Columbus , this Now World is thine I
Thy claim was in thy forward-reaching
An inner prescient right ; thou didst divmo
Wonders that , tbu veiled homiupboro should
At lost , from out the blue blank of tbo scat
And whatsoever foot might tread this
Clear was thy title of discovery ,
Whoso thought ouuullcd thy ships so long
That which we recognize and seek U oursj
Approaching unperceived , related ttouls
Stir irresistibly our noblest powore ;
Us toward our own tbo lido of being rolls )
And shall it not bo Joy , the voyage done ,
To know thu continent auU island one )
