about the young gentleman who in dis
cussing the free range and herd law bold

buccaneers. They are not so contractive

are broad and strong enough for the man

consider as such I dare to maintain them."
George Manning and lady of Chicago
are visiting at the South Side ranch, the
home of their son Sidney. The above

Paris to Honolula, and for years they
paced the decks of their own ships on the
bright waters of the northern flakes. For
the last few years he has been an active
operator on the Board of Trade in Chica

of his son's home, and is contemplating
the building of stock yards on the line of
the B. & M. railroad. His friends are
convinced that his remaining amongst
them would give new life to the region.

The Last of the "Cow Punchers."
About seventy-five cow boys were in
town Monday. It was the Bay State, in
charge of CoJ. Peny Brazeil, the LF and
the 70 outfits and they were making what
will probably be the last general round up
through this section of tbe country. We
noticed several old timers in tbe outfits
and that thecest of order prevailed. As
the cavalcade rod? slowly out of town
there wrre not a few among the watching
spectators v$fv regretted that the cow boy
had gon fever to return to this region
The round up secured very few cattle
on the way down the Lodge Pole. Calf
stealing is reported to be very general
and one settler had the gall to refuse, un
til forced to do so, to give up five or six
calves although the Bay State cows were
balling outside his corral and readily
claimed the calves when they were re
leased. On Pumpkin Creek a settler
fired into-a bunch of saddle horses in the
night time and wounded one in the fore
leg . One of the balls sped dangerously
near the night "wrangler."
The Bay State company is using every
endeavor to get the cattle out of the coun
try. Three herds will be sent to Montana
and two to northern Wyoming. Sidney
Ninety-five Miles An Hour.
An application has been filed by a New
York civil engineer for a patent for a
locomotive and tender designed for mak
ing faster time than has ever been made
in this or any country. The boiler is
rectangular in shape, having a large and
permanent area of evaporating surface,
supported by a great extent of heating
surface, the pressure to be carried being
210 pounds per inch, which is one third
of its bursting pressure at its weakest
points. The cylinders are in the rear of
instead of between the truck wheels, and
the fire-box is supported between the cen
ter of gravity of driving wheels. All the
combination of parts are in exact har
mony, and it is intended to easily make
the time of sixty miles an hour with ten
coaches, and can without violent strain.
be brought to ninety-five miles per hour
with the same load. This gain in per
formance over the present machine is ob
tained by a mathematical construction
with reference to the distance between
rail centers upon which it is supported,
and is the first application made which
has embraced and specified every portion
of a locomotive and tender constructed
mathematically with reference for the
limits within which they must be con
fined and supported. As a result of exact
proportion with reference to such base,
the cost of maintainance will be greatly
below the general average of jgresent con
structions: Washington Letter to Phil
Blaine Could Not Accept.
We can certainly see no reason why
this utterance (Blaine interview in New
York Press) shall not be accepted as final
by the Republicans of the Nation, even
those who are most loyal to Mr. Blaine,
and most desire his candidacy this year .
There is no possible pretext for continu
ing to agitate his nomination, after so ex
plicit a withdrawal by himself. He does
not want the nomination, for reasons
which he does not choose to give, because
they are personal to himself. Conjecture
as to their nature is impertinent, especial
ly as he alsc admits thai his health is not
good, and implied that he does not feel
able to stand the strain of a heated cam
paign. It may be, as Mr. Stephen B. Elkins
says, that Mr. Blaine might reluctantly
accept if the nomination were offered him
with principal unanimity by the conven
tion ; but it is obvious to any man who has

M. Cj. Harrington, The First Ward Grocer
i r :
closely followed the current of events
that such unanimity is impossible. Mr.
Mr. Blaine wrote his Florence letter be
fore the selection of delegates had begun.
State after state instructed for a "favorite
son," and there can be no hope of even a
majority for Mr. Blaine until repeated
ballotings Jiave disposed of the candidates
to whom their States are formally
And we believe , should Mr. Blame's
friends persist in pushing him as a candi
date, that a nomination which would
come as the result of a protracted strug
gle would be declined by him, and very
wisely. He can not afford to go into a
campaign with the thick and thin friends
of other candidates ready to knife him
for- accepting a nomination which he has
reDeatedly declined, and feeling that his
renewed candidacy had defeated their
own hopes. . .
We are thus forced to tne convicuuu
'that Mr. Blaine's withdrawal is final, and
that his supporters, who have stood by
him with such splendid loyalty, must re
gretfully abandon the hope of again going
into battle under his leadership. One
ing remains in their power, however,
beyond all doubt; and that is to name the,
candidate. Their strength in the con
vention, as at present acknowledged,
shows that they hold the balance of
power. Let them consider caretuiiy and
give to the country a candidate who can
not only command the support of every
Blaine man, bat of every other Republi
can in the nation, if they desire to render
victory certain. Toleda Blade.

farmer than either place and that, it is
much healthier than there.
The freight agent at North Platte in

cars going west but that the Union Pa

Capt. L. K. Hutton found a nugget of
gold in the gravel near the foot hills last

solid. Its weight in its crude condition
as found is nearly as much as a twenty,

years that there was traces of gold in the
sand in the hills near Paxton between the
rivers but no one supposed that nuggets
of gold would ever be found in this re-cion.
