John Short was taken with one of his Ecml-
occaslonal travails of soul yesterday morning
and perched himself In his wagon at the
corner of Broadway and Main street to
give the general public an Insight Into governmental -
ornmental affairs. In a few minutes he had
accumulated quite a crowd , a portion of
which , composed of strangers , expected to
hear something Intcrcbllng , and the rest ,
composed of people who knew John , wanted
lo see from what quarter the customary
shower bath would co'me. "
W.IL"M. _ . I'uscy was sitting In his bank
and the oratory grated on his nerves. He
sent to the police station and asked that It
be stopped. Officer Weir appeared on the
scene a few minutes later ami ordered John
to close his face. But John has been defy-
Inc governments too long to have any fear
for a blue-coated minion of the law , and he
frankly vowed his Intention to stay there and
talk until the thermometer down in hades
registered 32 , unless he chose to stop sooner.
"I defy you to arrest me , " he shouted ;
"I'm a citizen and I know my rights. " With
that the crowd gave a lusty howl and
awaited anxiously the time when one or the
other of the parties to the encounter should
use his fists. Some of the local labor people
In the outskirts of the crowd Intimated In
tiulet tones that If Weir tried to arrest their
apostle he would find his hands full , for they
would take him away. For a time It looked
very much like trouble , but the upshot of
the whole matter was that Weir hauled In his
horns and left Short In possession of the
field. Short cracked several pieces out of the
cerulean and finally left when ho got ready.

COUNCIL BLUFFS , Aug. 22. To the Edl-
tor of The Bee : Since my return from
Spirit Lake I have often thought of the
pleasant and uplifting Influences of the Cluu-
tauqua which I enjoyed at that place. It
was good Indeed to be there. But why should
not all Council Bluffs right here at home
enjoy those means of personal and social
Improvement which such an assembly opens
to us ? Given a location easily acceptable to
our population , an assembly room with teach
ing apartments equal to the needs of the oc
casion , camping grounds near nt hand , well
shaded and Inviting , and a list of lecturers ,
teachers , musicians and entertainers adapted
to those In purslut of restful but profitable
relaxation , and all the essentials of a first
class Chautauqua are at hand. A few thou
sand dollars will furnish all thcsa and a
grand assembly next summer can be opened
up to western Iowa and eastern Nebraska.
I hope the needed money may bo soon forth
coming. T. T. THIGKSTUN.

General Manager Dickinson Is having
peck of trouble these summer days , much of
It originating west of Cheyenne along the
Union Pacific. His mall during the past
three weeks has grown In volume until the
general manager Is almost swamped under
the avalanche of letters. And these letters
have but one thought In them , petitions for
the reinstatement of old employes who went
out on the strike. These letters , however ,
do not come from the men themselves , but
from merchants , bankers , real estate agents ,
Hoard of Trade associations , and other bodies
having presumably some Influence with the
general manager. They are all of the same
tenor , asking that work bo resumed In the
shops , and that old employes be given prefer
ence over Imported help.
So urgent are Eomo of the demands that
Mr. Dickinson has about decided to go west
and yiersonally Interview the business
men of the communities clamoring
for relief and asking for the reinstatement of
men. He will simply place the situation
on a business basis and nothing could be
more conclusive than the earnings of the
system for June recently published In The
IJee , wherein It Is shewn that the whole
system , with the single exception of the
main line , presents a deficit.

CHICAGO , Aug. 22. For over a year the
Alton and Hlo Grande Western have been
quarreling over the division of World's fair
business of last year. The latter line has
refused repeatedly to abide , by the basis
of division adcpted by the lines of the West
ern Passenger association. Recently an at
tempt has been made to Induce It to alter
Its resolution and adopt the association rate
of . division , but U has once more positively
declined and the trouble will Mill brew ,
The stagnation In passenger business con
tinues to bo as great as befcre and many cf
the lines report It the dullest season they
have ever known.

His reasons are :
Tea and Coffee create nervousness with
a people too nervous al.eady ;
Hitter Chocolates are not lit to make a cup
