Karl In the gray 'foggy morning of Oc-
t tuber IS, 18;4, Colonel Joseph Thoburn's
division of Brigadier General George
Jrook's army of West 'Virginia, which con
stituted a part of the army of the Shenan
doah, waa roused from Its slumbers by
I a ringing volley Of musketry from the con
federate General J. B. Kershaw's infantry
division. Thoburn'a men were panic
atricken and poured out of their tent to
' nee what was up and before they had col
lected their senses their position was swept
' In an Instant, their seven gun, from which
not a. Shot had ben filed, were In tha
hands of Kershaw's forces and over half
of the division was made prisoners. Tha
rest fled to the rear and Kershaw turned
the guns, hn had captured on the fleeing
troops. On csme the victorious Kershaw

and t. combined rebel forces were hurled
agalfst the Nlnteenth and Sixth corps and
the retreat of Cedar Creek was on In fact.
Confused by Heavy Kosj.
A heavy fog prevailed during the earlier
( hours of the battle and confusion waa
( rampant Inside the union lines and regl
j ments and brigades fled down the Win
' Chester pike, a disorganised mob abso
lutely uncontrollable. There were a few
rcglmenta that maintained their organlca
tion and discipline and no one man is en
J titled to greater credit for resisting th
I victorious rebels and holding them partly
In t'heck than Colonel R. B. Hayes and his
Twenty-third Ohio Infantry. Tha panlo
did not continue long, but a greater portion
of General George Crook's army was tn
full retreat down the pike and was among
I the very first men that General Sheridan
I ran Into on his famous rid.
General Sheridan had Just returned from
Washington from two or three days'
conference with General Halleck and
f lth. About 7 o'clock an officer on picket
i reported. "thV 'distant sound ' of" artillery,
j which was at first supposed to be from a
reconnolssance, and but little attention waa
paid-to It. About t o'clock General Sher
idan, mounting his horse, rode to the out
aklrta of the town, and observing no cessa
tion-in tha artillery firing, became satisfied
that a battle was on. Riding out to Mill
Creek, half a mil beyond Winchester, he
found trains and troops already there from
the Cedar Creek battle field
So far an the ride l concerned. It ended
I upon General Sheridsn reaching the Sixth
: corps at about noon. Krom that time in
lie devoted himself to riding slong the line,

lie gave hurried orders to park tha re
treating trains and to use the spare brigade
at Winchester to form a cordon across tha
pike and fields so as. to stop the strag
glers and fugitives. General Sheridan
dashed up the plk with an escort of twenty
' men of the Sixth 1'nited States cavalry.
'. He called the fugitive to turn about and
face the enemy, and nany of them, In
al'lied by his presence, turned back with
vheer. Thi main body of the retreating
rinv was encountered just eleven and a
half miles from Winchester, and as soon
as Sheridan's presence became known tha
wildest enthusiasm and Joy prevailed. It
was the Sixth corps which was first met

swung his old hat and dashed along th
line toward the right.. "Never mind, boys,
we will whip ! out of them yet; we will
whip them yet. and we shall sleep in our
' old quarters tonight."
How well Sheridan kept his promise Is
a nmtter of often-ttd history. Victory
wst wrenched from disastrous defeat. At

While the union army was retreating back

The Soulli Omaha republicans held an
enthusiastic meeting Saturday at Com
monwealth hall. A number of the loral
candidates. County Atorney Slabaugh
snd Congressmsn John I Kennedy sd
dressed the voters on tiie Issues of the
present campaign. The speeches by the
latter two were the principal efforts of the
evening, though all the candidates had
plenty to say.
Mr. Kennedy's speech wss more thsn
usually Important because he committed
himself unreservedly to the policy of a
postal savings bsnk. He said: "Such fail
ures as that a few weeks since In the Mil
waukee Avenue Savings bank have but
one meaning that there must be means
of greater safety to the earners of small
salaries. From statements furnished by
the receivers of the bsnk. It is shown that
the greater proportion of the depositors
were of the laboring class. The fraternal
lodges snd soclftles numbered twenty-six,
all of which losses come from the work
ingmen. These people must have means
of safety. As long as I have any Influence
In congress I shall be In favor of such a
system. I have been abje to get many
things dona for the good or soutn umsna
and the state, and In this respect I leave
It to your Judgment which would be able
to the more quickly accomplish the de
sired ends, I or Mr. Hitchcock, a man who
said of hia own ability while a member
that the only thing he could do was to
distribute gsrden seeds."
In discussing other subjects, Mr. Kennedy
briefly ran over his official acts and showed
their connection with the affairs of the
city and the state. By his efforts the Ex
change post office received additional help
both In the clerk and th machinery neces
sary. The branch ofTic wss established In
Brown park by his recommendation. He
promised that at an early date the salary
of the officials should' be raised to meet
their Just due. This was also true of the
He declared that through his efforts the
meat Inspection appropriations were made
higher and kept up to the requirements
of the work; that the efforts of himself
snd a number of the western representa
tives secured the clause of the new law
providing that the cost of government in
spections should be assumed by the federal
government. This provHon he explained
at some length. After dealing with the
history of tils work asj a representative,
he took up the qualifications of the other
candidates. He specially recommended to
the citisens County Attorney Slabaugh, a
man whose work was so consistent and
earnest and the results of his labors so
gratifying. He declared that the one fact
of W. -W. Slabaugh establishing the In
heritance tax had saved already to the
people In Douglas county $75,0U0.
Democrat Would Be Helpless.
Mr. Blabaugh's address was forceful and
exceedingly practical. "What is the use,"
he said, " of sending a democratic delega
tion to the Ifgislature from Douglas
county when the balance of the state is
bound to be overwhelmingly republican.
The prosperity of these year assuredly Is
not forgotten by the rural districts. If you
want home rule can you get it by antag
onising the balance of th alate? They witt
make sport of you and will say to a demo
cratic del. gu tion from Douglas. 'Go buck
home.' If, on the other hand, a republican
delegation is sent to Lincoln they will tw
in a position to ask and to secure almost
anything they desire."
he then discussed the county affairs, till
ing how he fought the case of the Inher
itance tax to the supreme court and estab
lished it with Its great benefits to the
state. One hundred thousand dollars In a

that he had fought no less than twelve
cases before the supreme court; that ho
had never employid any special attorney
supposed to have exceptional ability to
represent the county before 1 lie supreme
bench. He hud givfn numerous opinions
and never had a reversal of his Judg nent.
He challenged his present opponent to show
such a record.
The other speskers of the evening were
L. C. Gibson, candidate for re-election for
aenator; Representatives Barnes, F. C.
Best, MIohael Lee, Edward Leder, Wil

of The Bee: As a reader I am glad to
see you publish the Dshlman answer to Mr.

say that I am glad there has been a
stand taken against too much clerical In
terference with seculsr affairs.
Mr. Dahlman could have pointed out to
his critic that people who do not pay taxes
on their property while enjoying all the
benefits of munrlpsl Improvements should
be careful In making wild charges about
the management of affairs to which they
If church property and parsonages paid
their share of taxation, or even as much
as the tax shirking railways contribute to
the genral funds of city government, criti
cism of the method of management of city
affairs would be in greater request.
In the long, up-hill fight your paper has
made for years against railway tax shirk
ing I have failed to see you get any sup
port from the pulpits of Omaha. So It
seems, then, that these superior people find
it more profitable to attack petty things
than Ills which are of a much greater order.
