watha and tha surroui.diog county la n t
engaged in a war on whisky or fightit g
leading politicians, or rolling upabg
rote for friends of Peffer and Simpson,
thare is always soma other affair on han 1
that keeps the people busy. Just at pres
ent the town is in a ferment over acro
aade started by the leading church peopl i
of the town against the London Gaiety
girls, an aggregation of buxom females,
abort skirts, and wicked city ways,
booked for a series of performances here.
When the advance agent came along last
week and nee a red dates at the Opera
bouse there were murmuriugs of disap
proval from certain people.
Those Wicked Show Bills.
The editors of The Democrat and World
secured advertising cards at high rates
and inserted editorial notices and local
paragraphs calling attention to the ag
gregation of beauty, grace and perfection
usually claimed for the members of a
trarleque show. This was bad enough.
The good people of the town murmured
gainst this invasion. But it was when
the wicked billposter came along and pla
carded the town that the murmur became
roar. Such wicked, shameless pictures
never before were paraded to bring a
blush to Hiawatha's fair fame.
The Women Get Tog-ether.
Then it was that the women of the town
- began to consider the affair seriously.
There was an informal gathering of cru
saders against wicked show bills at the
residence of one of the leading society
ladies of the town. All were church mem
bers, and after prayerful consideration ot
the matter it was determined to prevent
the performance at any cost. The youth
nd the middle-aged and the elderly mem
bers of the male populace, it was argued,
must be saved from contamination. The
few male confidants of the crusaders coun
seled legal measures, urging the woman
to appeal to the mayor and police to pre
vent the performance.
City Officials Snbaidlied.
The plan was not favorably looked
upon at first, but finally it was decided to
make this concession to orderly methods,
and a committee was appointed to influ
ence the city officials. The committee
went to the court house, saw the officials,
and came away without getting any con
cessions. The agent had paid his license,
the city was bilied, the performance ad
vertised, and any arbitrary action on the
part of the officials meant a lawsuit
against the city and more trouble than a
little. .Besides, it is suspected that the
officials were rather anxious to see the
show, as it is the custom of most advance
agents to make themselves good neigh
bora by presenting the city fathers with
MADE THE CRUSADERS WROTH.
A Bald Executed on the Show's Iemor
Thea Ibe blood of the crusaders began
to boil. When the committee reported
the stubborn ways of the officers an elder
ly woman advised a personal attack on
the members of the Gaiety company,
while another counseled moderation, sug
gesting that the Gaiety girls be appealed
to to refuse to appear on the boards.
While tbe matter was being discussed an
other woman suggested that, even if the
performance con id not be prevented, at
least those degrading posteta and litho
graphs could be destroyed and public dis
approval of tbe show so loudly expressed
that self-respecting men would not dare
enter the opera house.
Attendants To Be Boycotted.
This sentiment was loudly applauded,
nd, while a committee was drawing u p
resolutions warning every man who at
tended the performances that he would be
declared a social outcast, another group
resolved themselves into a committee to
devise ways and means to destroy the ob
noxious pictures. Tuesday evening a group
of women armed with rakes, pitchforks
and hatchets started out on their mission
of destruction. While the band tooted a
welcomu at tiie opera house entrance half
a dozen richly clad women, armed with
weapons and a fierce determination, ap
proached the bill boards and began their
self imposed task.
Balsed Cain with the Pictures.
Tbe skirt dancsr's shapely foot was ob
literated and her skirt lowered to tbe
ground. The creature in pink tights was
torn to shreds, and tbe dainty girl dis
guised as a dude was robbed of everything
save her plug bat. Other women entered
the stores and shops on tbe business
streets, and without ceremony tore from
their" fastenings the ptetty lithographs
that adorned the show windows and
trampled them under foot. A mob, yell
ing and chaffing, followed the women,
who soiled their dresses and lost their
tempers before the work was ended.
Advertised the Entertainment,
Scores of persons who had not given a
thonght to the performances were
prompted to investigate the wickedness of
the Gaiety show, and a large audience was
the result. The show was a good one, and
tbe attenanoe last night was even larger
than that of tbe night previous. The
arusada has been noised about throughout
this section, and many persons came in
yesterday from Severance, Leona, Robin
eon, Manrille, Hamlin, Morrill, Sabetha,
and other towns along the Grand Island
road to attend the performance. -

Nashville, Oct. 22. Ten thousand peo

LONDON, Oct. 23. Two handsome vol

author's precocious genius.
JOHN HQEY DEFENDS HIMSELF.
Bis Version of That Heal In Express
New York. Oct. SH The World printe
an Interviewed with John Hoey, ex-president
of the Adams Express company, in
which he gives his side of the famous
Sberb6arne deal, the alleged reason for
his dismissal from the company. Mr.
Hoey said: . .
I bought some stock In the Massachusetts
express companies, in conjunction with Sher
burne and Spooner. Taft was the man who
held it and transferred it. Tbe first batch we
bought was sold to William B. Dim-more, then
president of the Adams Express company. Mr.
Dinamore held that stock for two years and
then turned it over to the Adams. In the
meantime, we had scoured an option on the rest
of the stock, and the Adams Kxpress company,
through Mr. Dinsniore, decided that the com
pany should own it all. My only sin was vot
ing as a trustee to buy that Btock for the com
pany. Iil Not Own a Dollar of the Stork.
But. mind you, I did not own a dollar of it.
William B. Dinsniore owned all of it. I did
not sell them anythine I owned. They try to
make out that I eiininecred a di al by w hich
Sherburne, Spooner, Taft and myself sold to
the company for $.s.).0iJ stock that was worth
only tl.V'.KiA. That is false. The stock had
bt-en purchased by Iresident Hinsiuore, and
by him transferred to the company. It had
appreciated In value largely after Mr. Dins
more bought it, but it seems a good time now
to jump on me and poor spooner.
Mr. Hoey added that ho bad not owned
any stock in the Adams express company
for sixteen years, but that was no reason
why he should not faithfully look after its
Corroborated by Dinsmore's Son.
William B. Dinsniore, son of the late
President Dinsniore, confirmed Mr.
Hoeys statement that his father had
owned the first batch of Massachusetts
express stock, which he transferred to
the Adams Express company. Some
time later when his father was on his
death-bed, he heard that the United
States Express company was after the re
mainder of the stock and it was on his ad
vice that the Adams Express company
bought the rest of the stock that had
been acquired by Messrs. Hoey, Spooner,
THE MONUMENT TO GRADY.
Unveiling of the Mrniorinl to the Brill
. ATLANTA, Oct. 22. The monument to
the late Henry W.Grady, editor of The
Constitution, was unveiled yesterday, his
little daughter pulling tbe rope that re
leased the veil of flags covering the statue.
The speech of the day was by Governor
Hill, of New York, and was an eloquent
eulogium of the dead southerner. At
night a banquet was given Governor Hill,
which was a Democratic symposium. Tbe
monument is made of granite and stands
ou a terrace with molded edges 10 feet
square by 4 feet high. Tbe terrace is sur
rounded by four corner posts and a brass
railing. The pedestal stands ou the
terrace, and is about eleven feet high. It
consists of three bases, tbe top of one of
which is molded and supports a polished
die with a molded cornice, on which
stand? the bronze statue of Mr. Grady.
The statue is between fti and 10 feet
hiKh. Ou either side of the pedestal is a
projecting buttress, on which are seated
two bronze statues representing memory
aid history. On the front of the base is
a large palm branch and wreath in bronze,
it closing an appropriate inscription.
France Objects to Wooden Buildings.
Paris, Oct. 2. M. Favette, secretary
of commerce, has received advices from
Caicago to the effect that the exhibition
buildings in course of construction by the
World's fair management are of wood,
instead of stone and iron. If this is true,
the fact will prevent France from partic
ipating in the fair.
CHICAGO, Oct. 22. Ko credence is placed
at exposition headquarters in the dis
patch from Paris that France will not
participate in tbe exposition because the
buildings are not constructed of stone
ami iron. It is looked upon as a French
newspaper lie for bribes.

That of 1817 Very Repugnant

with Great Britain Which Prohibits
Warships ou the Great Lakes Western
Shipbuilders Deprived of the Utiliza

Secretary Knsk Preparing n Valuable
Bulletin of Comparative Prices Frauoe
to Take Our Pork.
Washington, Oct 22. There promises
to be a general ouslaught on the treaty of
1317 with Great Britain in the forthcom
ing annual reports. Not only will the
secretary of the navy probably recom
mend its abrogation and the secretary of
ate say a word in the same .vein,
b it the chief of the bureau of navigation,
W W. Bates, who, by the way, is au old
Chicago shipbu lder, will jump bard on
the odious treaty, which prevents tbe
ljustruction and maintenaute of a fleet
sf war vessels on the great lakes. Mr,
Bates will present the nieritsof the treaty
from a commercial standpoint, while the
cabinet officers will take broad national
ground and show how utterly defenseless
we are rendered on the Canadian border
by tbe operation of the treaty.
The Treaty Practically Inoperative.
The general trend of sentiment will be
to impress upon the senate the necessity
of passing a resolution giving the neces
sary six months' notice required before
abrogating a treaty. A number of well
known authorities on diplomatic matters,
notably ex-Congressman George E.
Adams, of Chicago.have taken the ground
that the treaty is practically iuoperative
from various reasons, and that there is no
necessity for formal notice of abrogation.
However.it is likely that the state au
thorities would counsel a less abrupt and
more courteous shedding of the shackles
than would be implied by a total disre
gard of tbe treaty.
Complaint Against John Bull.
An authority on the subject said:
So far as Great Britain is concerned the
treaty has been practically inoperative for
years. By means of canals the British bring
their warships within easy access of the lakes.
Ureat Britain alternates between making
treaties and scheming how she may evade
tbe obligations they impotc. In this case she
holds over our beads an implied obligation by
which we could be prevented from putting
a licet on the lakes to defend our northern
boundary and tbe great commercial interests
of Chicago, Cleveland and Buffalo from inva
sion in case of a war with any other foreign
Interferes with Ship Building.
The coinmcrci.il efTect of the treaty seems to
be the most distasteful to the people residing
In the lake regions. During the lat year the
ship building iuterests cf that region have
lodged many petitions in favor of the abroga
tion of the treaty. As the treaty oiH-ratcs ship
builders on tbe lakes are excluded from com
peting for contracts in building war vessels.
Last season t he secretary of the navy made a
ruling which practically declared the treaty
operative by rejecting the bid of Wheeler &
Co., of Bay City, Mich., on sjieciflcations for
the construction of a war vessel.
Chicago a Rival of Philadelphia.
With a supply of raw material for ship
building unequaled by any region on the
globe, this section is excluded from the com
petition, the icreat industry paralyzed and the
federal government deprived of the benetita'
which would accrue in low-priced vessels
which could reasonably be made cheaper on
the ground where the raw materials are all
produced than by shipping them across the
continent and adding to the cost of construc
tion the cost of tbe transportation. Most of
our warships are now constructed in Phila
delphia. (Should this treaty be suspended it is
more than likely that Chicago wonld succeed
Philadelphia as the great ship-builder for the

she will give a temperance address at

public and Miss Willard will preside.
A Warning to Letter Carriers.
Washington, Oct. 22. It has been
found npou iuquiry by the postoffice de
partment that the Philadelphia letter
carriers who were removed recently by
Postmaster Field were in the habit of
"playing the races" at Gloucester, a sporb
iug resort. They were recommended by
General Edgar ton, inspector in charge, of
Philadelphia, as persons untrustworthy

Washington, Oct. 22. The action ot

regarded as an official declaration ot the
purpose to lift tbe embargo from Amer
ican pork. Secretary Busk says it will
make tbe French dnty on our pork 78
cents less than tbe German duty.

you know the old prejudice.'
And the doctors -some of
them are between you and us.
Ttiey would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure . you. K.yjou'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
u stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhapt, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
