Ono ot the most charming and Instructive
lectures ever heard In thl city was that
on "General Grant" by Dlshop John P. New
man of the Methodist Episcopal church at
Crclghton theater last evening. It was the
first time the lecture had ever been delivered
In the transmlsslsslppl section ot the coun
try , and In the audience was noticed a con
siderable number of veterans ot the civil
Judge Jacob Fawcett presided over the
meeting , and among the more prominent
citizens on the stage were : General Man-
derson , General Cowln , Henry W. Yates , D.
A. Footc , Judge Strawn , ex-Governor Hoyd ,
Major Wllcox , Amos Field. M. M. Hamlln.
John Dale , A. 13. Henson , GeorgeII. . Pa > ne ,
Allan T. Ucctor , Ilev. Ur. J. W. Shank
Samuel lltirns , Ilcv. Dr. Saumlerson , Itcv.
Dr. Maxfoll. John G. Cbrtelyou , Erastus
Young and W. V. Morse.
Dlshop Newmin made his Interesting lec
ture all the more delightful by abandoning
the least migic ; tlon of manuscript or notes
nnd even dispensing with the ordinary lec
ture table. The address rather took on the
form of a conversation about an Intimate
friend. Grant as a warrior was discussed
but little. Allusions were made to his bril
liant military ochlcvments , but they wcro
brief. Instead of rehearsing the exploits
of the gront military leader upon the south
ern battlefields the lecturer tlrow aside the
veil of Grant's private llfo and showed the
beautiful characteristics of him a.i a man.
Ills great Intellectuality , the beauty of his
family life , his patriotism and his philan
thropy wcro the principal heads of the lec
ture , nnd under each of them was given an
abundance of material that no one , perhaps ,
save Illsliop Now man himself , could handle
so well. To the advantage of speaking from
un Intimate friendship with the subject of
his lecture , Dlshop Newman added the charm
of a most pleasing delivery , nnd throughout
his addrrea ho was given the closest atten
tion of his auditors.
In Introducing Dlshop Newman Judge
Fawcett said that ho knew there was gen
eral regret that Omaha was soon to lose the
distinguished clergyman. Deforo removing
from the city Illsliop Newman had agreed
to deliver this lecture , which had been re
quested many times. In his opinion It re
quired great men to discuss great subjects ,
and It was therefore appropriate that he
should , In opening the meeting , mention the
names of Newman and Grant. Judge Faw-
cott said that ho had always regarded the
fact that ho enjoyed a personal acquaint
ance with Grant as ono of the most precious
features of his life. Ho had come from the
same town , Galena , and It would now bo a
pleasure for him to hear mere about the
great general from his pastor and friend ,
. ABOVE ALL A PATRIOT.
In his opening remarks Dlshop Newman
said that General Grant had been
universally accorded a nlclio In the
temple of renown , and neither was
that temple to bo destroyed nor the
fame of Grant diminished. "Cordial recep
tions accorded public men do not always tcs.
tlfy to the greatness of these to whom they
are tendered , " said the lecturer , and he supported -
ported hla statement by alluding to the
grandest pageants Rome and France had
ever seen. In a mottt beautiful word picture
ho painted the national sorrow at the great
general's death , and said It was because the
man whoso death was mourned was above
everything else a patriot , and hU patriotism
had stood out In front ot his other char
"Great men appear In the world's history
in groups. It was so throughout ancient and
medieval times. Around Grant wcro clus
tered Sherman , Sheridan , Thomas and other
warriors whose names shall bo cherished
to the end of mankind. This grouping of
famous mvu Is seen even in the affairs of
the nation today. With Heed In the house ,
Sherman in the senate. Harrison In Indiana ,
McKinlcy In the presidential chair and God
over all , tbo nation still lives.
"Grant was a logician of war. Ho was a
scholar , and In the studies that require the
greatest mental effort to master did ho do
his best work. " nishop Newman once looked
up Grant's record at West Point. Ho found
that ho had excelled Iti his studies , liv most
of them being classed as a first section
man , but In his conduct ho had been marked
low because his boots were not alwaya
shlncd and his buttons seldom polished.
Grant's aim In llfo was to be a college pro
fessor , and the lecturer once examined let *
tors of Grant In which ho had asked for the
position of adjunct professor at West Point.
In his trip around the world Grant was still
a student. He carefully Investigated the
physical , commercial and social conditions
ot the many places ho visited , and his
journal of that memorable tour was a mas
terpiece. Ills memoirs too , every word of
which ho wrote himself , arc the work of an
Intellectual giant. Ho fought his battles
In the Intellect , and his Intellectuality 1 $
evidenced In his experiences of war as well
as In those of peace.
"Were I a painter I would paint you a
picture of Grant as the guest of great na
tions , honored throughout his foreign tour
by court receptions and handsome presents.
Then I would paint you a picture of Grant ,
bankrupt , penniless. I was at his homo the
evening of the day when the sad blow that
robbed hhn of his earthly treasure came.
Ho was then quiet , In repose. Hut It was a
repose that only told of his sorrow. I was
there at the time the Vandcrbllt's made a
financial demand and in rather harsh terms ,
too. Ho looked nt all the precious gifts that
had been bestowed upon him nt homo and
abroad , but gave them "a mere glance In
passing. It was before an old family pic
ture that ho stood lougcst. Then ho cried
out : 'Give mo poverty and honor rather
than wealth and disgrace. ' If I were naked
to sum up Grant's character In a single
phrase I should say : 'Sincerity , changeless
sincerity. ' "
The lecturer paid a beautiful tribute to
Mrs. Grant , and ho declared that when she
fchould overcome her natural modesty she
would give to the world a book that would
bo moat corJtally received. In It would be

found In the finest diction n wealth of In
formation concerning Orant never before
published , Interspersed with bright flashes of
Mrs. Grant's own keen wit.
"Grant was nn Intense patriot , an Intense
American. The glory ot patriotism was his.
Ho did not dispute the right of citizenship
to any foreigner who chose to come hero
and make this his adopted home , but ho
never liked those who acted ns though they
were conferlng n favor on the- United States
when they took out their naturalization pa-
pew. With all his patriotism , ho had the
humility of n true warrior.
"Next to Grant's glory of patriotism was
his glory of philanthropy. Patriotism was
limited In Its purview. Grant believed In
extending the right hand of fellowship to
all civilized nations. Ho was n dreamer.
Ho was a man ot war. but ho was also n
man of peace. In his conversations with mo
ono of his fondrat topics to dwell upon was
the establishment nt some future day of n
supreme court of the world. There would
all International difference * be adjudicated ,
the sword being converted Into the plow
share and the bayonet Into the pruning fork.
Grant longed to sco the time when peace
should reign and rlghteousm-M prevail over
the face of the entire earth. He would have
ever above this International court of justice
the cross , the symbol of universal peace ,
and below It the American Hag , the symbol
of universal liberty. "

taken his seat , announced that Jules Lum-
bard would nlng "America. " The soloist

That Palno's celery compound certainly
cures such diseases as neuralgia , sleepless
ness and dyspepsia does not admit of a
doubt. It builds up the entire nervous sys
tem , plumps out the tissues , starts the blood
Into healthy circulation and regulates the
action ot the nerves. It makes people well ,
strong nnd energetic.
Mrs. U. It. Pratt of Centre Brook. Conn. ,
whoso portrait Is given here , says plainly :
"I find Palne's celery compound a perfect
medicine. I took several bottles for general
debility and It did for hie all I could ask. It
made mo well. I have recommended It to
my friends , and they all speak In Its praise. "
Palno's celery compound Is the most as
sured and direct means of getting luck n

regulator. U exterminates all vlcloui

Practically nothing wca done In the fed
eral court yesterday and It la an open secret
around the court room that Judge
Shlras Is much put out at the dllatorinc 3
of attorneys In bringing cases to a hearing-
He announced yesterday that a now as
signment. of cases would bo made Monday
and It Is altogether likely that In case
something Is not done to dispose of the
largo amount of business on the docket there
will be something drop. The Judge hlm-
svlf Is n hard worker and comes Into court
promptly nt the tlmo set , ready to proceed
There are on the docket for the pres
ent term 110 law cases , 21G equity and a
considerable number of criminal cases and
the grand Jury will In all probability re
turn a number of additional indictments.
Court has been In session lacking one day
of two weeks and ui > to date only two jury
cases have been heard nnd very few equity.
At the present rate of progress the money
avalhblo for payment of Jurymen will bo
exhausted long before the work Is com
pleted , which will necessitate the discharge
of the jury. This Is not only likely to In
volve Injustice to litigants , but work far
more serious consequences to federal pris
oners who are not nblo to give ball. Unless
they can secure a trial It will necessitate
their remaining in Jail until the next term
