Tlio Bound money democrats propose to
Make themselves felt during the last week
of the campaign. They have secured the
attendance not only of their candidates for
j-.rmldcnt nnd vlco president , but also ol
two or three of the most successful cam-
palRn orators In their party. The pre
liminary arrangements for a scrloi of blR
mass meetings at Omaha and other Ne
braska points vvcro made In Chicago by
Uuclld Martin , W. D. Mcllugh and I.eo
Spratlln , who returned yesterday. Gen
eral John M. Palmer nnd Simon Iluckncr
will be In Omahn October 29. The details
of the meeting hnvo not been derided on ,
but It vvlll probably bo held at llojd's
theater. John I' . Irish of California vvlll
como November S. An excursion will bo
arranged by which ho will make n hurried
tour of the state , minding up with a big
meeting In Omaha. Members of the com
mittee on arrangement state that Mr. Irish
will not follow llryan In his prospective
trip on the fume day , but It Is expected
that ho will naturally speak at several of
the paints atvhti ! llryan stops.
It Is also promised that John H. Fellows
of Now York will come to Nebraska during
the last week of the campaign and mnko
several speeches for the sound money cause.
The arrangements for Mr. Fellow's trip have
r.ot been completed , but a very encouraging
assurance Is given that ho will at least
prak In Omaha.
Messrs. Martin , Mcllugh and Spratlln do-
clnro that even as far west -Chicago
McKlnlcy'g election Is now considered a
foregone conclusion. The pound money
pause- , they say , has gained strength with
rcmarKnblo rapidity , and nil the ante-elec
tion Indications point to an overwhelming
defeat 'or llryan. They assert that the
I'almcr and Iluckncr ticket has proved to
lie a potential factor In the campaign and
that thoimands of democrats who were for
merly for llryan bavo decided to vote for
the sound money nominees.
Aside from the Interest which will at
tach to the presence of I'almcr and Iluckncr ,
Irish nnd Fellows , Douglas county vvlll be
the scene of a rcdhot local light during
the remainder of the campaign. Governor
Holconib will spend his time campaigning
In Omaha -mid vicinity for the populist
ticket. Several of the rcnubltcan candi
dates ns well nn their most effective sup-
porteia will arrive hero during the week
for the purpose of walking for the re
publican nominees. The republican county
central committee Is conducting an ug-
grrsstvo campaign , and encouraging reports
are received from all parts of the county
with the exception of n few precincts , where
the poll shows some slight defection. These
nro nioro than offset , however , by gains In
other districts , vvllch arc nlnio.it unanimous
for McKlnley and MacColl. The committee
feels confident that McKlnley has now fully
3.000 majority I , ) the county , vvhllo eotv
sldcrablo gains nro In sight.

their minds already made up thuy are no
backward In expressing their preference fo ;
the republican presidential ticket.
It was the most cordial greeting yet ac
corded to republicans In the banner demo
cratlc precinct of Douglas county. On every
hand hope for republican success this fal'
wns freely expressed.

of the presidential candidates , the speaker
alluded , to the popocratlu llryan as n man
who had discovered nn enemy's countr )

nation wnis fought for and accomplished
more than thirty jears 'ago. The speakoi

which the popocratlc candidate represents
Ho said the present exceptionally ban'
times In Nebraska were practically due to an
overgrowth of populism , fiom which Kansas
had also suffered. On the money question
Mr. lUtchlu took Issue with the popocrntt
who assert the commission of tlio crime In
1S7.1. This ho said was really committed In
1SC5 , when Leo handed over his sword t <
Grant and car loads of confcdciato pape
money was struck down.
On account of lack of tltno Mr. Holler ,
another speaker of the dny , gave way to
Sir. Cornish was very attentively llstenci
to when he dwelt en this country an
German's prosperity under n llkp

wild statements and utter unreliability with

Mr. Cornlili received a most liberal share

OMAHA , Oct. 19. To the Editor of The
Ice ! Through the medium of your paper I
ivould llko to call the attention of these of
my race , who arc thinking of supporting
the frco silver candidate , to a few facts.
They nay "the rich are oppressing the poor ; "
would like to know why they send tip
nuch a howl ? Have they looked nt the con
dition of the negro In South Carolina ?
Senator Tlllnmn , one of the chief ad
vocates of free silver , Is going about talking
of oppression. Where docs n worse condition
: xlsl ? Nearly Do per cent of the negro 'vote
s disfranchised by on unholy election law ,
I think the negro might do better , In
ninny wa > a , by dividing his strength , but nt
tlili tlmo I think the experiment might
prove too costly. We nrc entitled to more
consideration nt the hands of the republican
mrty than we get ; but I think we do not
, ake the proper steps to secure It. Fifteen
jenrs ago the negro tn Omaha found plenty
of work on the streets , but now I look
around nnd I see but few. Why Is It ? The
reason Is plain Many of the men who now
ask him to support Mr. llryan have brought
about this condition. They bar him out of
their unions. It matters not how much skill
lie may poascss.
Work Is necessary If we exist , and , ( inch
being the case , we must work for those who
can pay us Can the poor man , like our
selves , hire us ? No. sir. The rich , unholy
as they nrc now called , give us work. They
say they want Mr. McKlnley elected. I sn >
vvu ought to Join In the thiong that Is flght-
ng for the honor and Integrity of the
government , which some of us fought to
Fully 20 ocr cent of my race do not \otc ,
but I am In hopes that they will , on Novem
ber 3 , and I hope they will vote for the re
publican national candidates , the state
ticket , and such men for the legislature ns
have money Invested In Nebraska. Men
who have the good of Nebraska nt heart ;
men who give cmplojmcnt to white and
Return Hon. D. H. Mercer to congress as
n reward for bis untiring work. Ho lias

The Omaha passenger agents have returned
from the special meeting of the Western
Passenger association , which occupied the
latter pa'rt of last week. General Passenger
i\gcnt Francis of the I ) & M. said yesterday
morning , In speaking of the work accom
plished : "Tho matter of the clergy bureau
was up for discussion , Reports ehowed that
the work of this bureau had been very satisfactory -
factory throughout the year. Instead-
each road within the bureau being required
to pass upon the credentials and applications
of clcrg > men ( or half-fare permits the work
has been done by the bureau. Instead of
keeping , say twenty reports , It has been
necessary to keep but one. The work hnn
been reduced to about one-fifteenth of what'
It would bo should each road attempt to
handle this matter for Itself. Not all of the
roads within the Western Passenger associa
tion were members of the clergy bureau
during the past jcar , but the workings of the
bureau have been so satisfactory that 1 think
they will como In this > cnr. The Denver
& Hlo Grande , the Rio Grande Western and
a few other western lines were not repre
sented In the bureau last jcar.
'Yes , we vvlll continue the clergy bureau ,
nnd ns nil of last j ear's reports will bo
valuable for the coming year's work , the
bureau will prove more effective than ever.
"Among other matters decided were four
homcscckcrs' excursions through this part
of thp country. There will be two In No
vember and tvvo In December. The question
of granting reduced rntes to voters to enable
them to go home to vote was brought up
nnd decided adversely. "

Thp cane brought In the county court by
William Alstadt to compel the county clerk
to place his name on the ofllclal ballot to bo
voted at the next election as the regular re
publican liomlnce for the ofllce of justice of
the peace In this city , was taken up by Judge
Itaxtcr yesterday afternoon. Alstadt was
represented by his attorney and the county
clerk was represented by Assistant County
Attorney Day , assisted by attorneys repre
senting the republican county committee and
the Republican Veteran league , of which
George Cockrcll , the other nominee of the
republican convention , Is n member.
H was asserted by Alstadt's attorney thnt
Alstadt had been nominated on the first bal
lot to fill ono of the vacancies then existing
and that ho received more votes on that bal
lot than did Cockrcll , the latter being sub
sequently nominated for the other vacancy.
It was asserted that the convention , by this
action had shonn Alstndt the preference.
The. contention of the attorncjs represent
ing the county clerk was tlut the proceed
ings of the convention had nothing to do
with ( he case ; that the county clerk could
only bo governed by the certificate filed by
the ofllccrs of the convention. U was shown
thnt the certificate In the case contained the
names of both Alstndt nnd Cockrcll , cnch
being nominated "to nil vacancy , " and when
the decision of the district court disposed of
ono vaejncjv Uic certificate vvns null and
void under the ruling of the supreme court
In the en so brought by the tvvo factions of
the statedcmociatlc convention two jeais
ago. It was argued that the clerk hud ex
ercised his discretion by declaring the ccr-
tlficnto void and that the court could not
compel him to exercise his discretion In nny
specified manner. It was asserted tint this
action on the part of the clerk simply cre
ated n vacancy which the central committee
alone vvas authorized to fill
The arguments In the case occupied the
court until about C o'clock nnd Judge Haxter
took the matter under advisement.

In drilling the artesian well In Klmwood park
have stopped work for the winter. They

water cnouR'n to rise to the top of the well.
As the well ct Rlvcrvlew park Is only about
1,100 feet deep there Is some doubt whether
It will be possible to obtain n oatlsfactory
flow at the new well. The men In charge
of the drilling assert that If they do not
strike water they will flnd oil or gas. They
have already gone through nve feet of
carboniferous shale which was thoroughly
saturated with oil and several other similar
Indications have been encountered.

rightly direeted. There is comfort in
the knowledge , that ho many forms of
sickness arc not duo to tiny uctiml dis
ease , but simply to 11 constipated condi
tion of the system , which the pleasant
family laxative , Syrup of Figs , prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
lemcdy with millions of families , andfs
ovciywhere esteemed f > o highly by all
who value food health. Its beneficial
effects arc due to the fact , that it is the
one icincdy which piomotcs internal
cleanliness * ! thpnr debilitating tl.o
organs on which it acts. It is tlieicforc
all iinpoitanl , in order to get its bene

all reputable diuggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health ,
and the system is regular , laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If

This morning' we open up a line of little reefer Overcoats
for lads 4 to 15 years of age. Commencing at $1.75 and
up to $3.50 we will show more rcefers bettcr reefers
and reefers for loss money than you hive ever seen here
before , The $1.75 reeler is made from a superior grade
chinchilla , made for hard wear and hard Icnocks and when
your boy gets through with it next spring you will say
it is the biggest money's worth of rcelcr you have ever
seen. The reefers at $2.00 , $2,50 , $3 oo and $3.50 arc
the best reefers ' ever offered for these prices and the only
reason we don't carry any higher priced ones is that we
don't think any reefer will give more than $3 50 worth of
wear. There arc places where you can pay more , but
there is no place where you can get more for what you
pay. Our line of cape coats for boys will interest those
who think the average prices around town are too high.
Here nothing is too h'gh. ' Here three dollars and a
quarter buys the best cape coat.
