One Tear, cash in advance............ $1.25. -Six Heaths, cash In advance 75 Cents Entered ottheNoithPlatte(KebrMka)po8tofficeas eecond-classmatter. FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 1897. The silver mine owners of Colo rado are closing" their mines and will probably engage in raising wheat, which is more profitable. "Wheat sold in Lexington Wed - nesday for seventy cents a bushel. Dawson county voted for free silver and Bryan last fall.'but it will be different this year. . Wholesale merchants report greatly increased sales in all de partments. The farmers in the west will be in condition this fall to buy lots of goods and live well. 'The campaigns in Iowa and Ohio will be watched with interest this year. In these states the free sil : verites will make their final kick before sinking" into oblivion. The spirited and prolonged fight in Omaha over the appointment of a chief of police was terminated Monday by the appointment of Con Gallagher. Nebraskans will now breathe easy. Brer Bryan comes out of his hole long enough each morning- to learn of the relative value of silver and wheat, and then scoots back. The markets continue to g-ive Bryan a tired feeling-. SdME little opposition to the re nomination of Judge Post is being developed as the date of the repub lican state convention draws near. There is a question, however, if this opposition will cause the Judge any inconvenience. Twenty-three ot the leading - railroads of the country report an increase of nearly one hundred thousand working-men to their force. This is one of the best indications of the revival of business. "When -railroads are busy other branches ..of commerce is active. Jerry Simpson says he is weary of 16 tol and wants a new issue; Senator Stewart declares "there is nothing- in talking free silver at the - present time," and Senator Jones is vready to lay down. Even some ot our Xincoln county free silver statesmen have let up on the silver hooray. Justice Field of the United States Supreme Court has the record for the longest service on the bench, having- been appointed by President Lincoln in 1863. He is in his eighty-eighth year, and . has reached the age for retirement, but prefers to remain in active service on the bench. Secretary Wilson, of the agri cultural department, in response to a request from the regents, will send a specialist from Washington to assist in the investigations going on at the state university with ref erence to hog cholera. Secretary Wilson is keenly alive to this sub ject and he readily consented to guarantee every facility of the gov ernment to make a thorougly scien tific investigation. Eventually the swine plague must be conquered, though thus far it has bafiled all attempts. It slays its tens of thou sands every year and the losses are millions upon millions of dol lars. With immunity against its ravages it is not likely the hog in dustry would be proportionally profitable, for the numbers would be so vastly increased as to depress the market; but it is probable the business would be much more prof itable than now. Fremont Tri bune. IT is quite astonishing the prices calves are bringing this summer. They go off at a flash now at prices for which cows would have been a very slow sale a few years ago- It was a very difficult if not an impos sible thing at that time to convince a great many cattle owners that things would ever again be very dif ferent from what they were then with the cattle business. But all branches of the live stock business have their ups and downs, and just at the present time the cattle busi ness is having one ot its ups. The present condition comes about mainly from the scarcity of cattle in the country, but an abundance of cheap feed. Stockers and feeders are apt to be held at too high a fig ure for a safe investment, and yet there is a sort of balance wheel in this feeding business. If a man cannot buy cattle to suit himself he can try sheep. There ought to be some money in feeding sheep this winter.and the more sheep that are brought into the state to feed the easier it ought to be to secure cat tlfata safe figure.

X.oftns Cuddy Says This Is the Tlaa of the Pittsburg- Operator, TVlio Have Ar ranged to Start Their aliens With or "Without Force. Pittsburg, Aug. 19. Yesterday was operators' day and from present appear ances they have made a most effective move and have nearly, if not quite, checkmated their opponents, the strik ing coal miners. The court's decreo in making permanent the preliminary in junction restraining the strikers from camping, inarching or in any way in terfering with the New York and Cleve land GaS'Coal company's iniue has had the effect of almost depleting the camps about those mines and apparently de moralization again exists among tbe campers. , In order to follow up their advantage the operators held a largely attended meeting last night at the Monongahcla house last night and arranged for the starting of their mines With or without force. If force seems to be unavoidable it is the intention to start a certain few mines at once tinder the protection of deputies and whatover expenso may re sult will be shared pro rata by tho miuo owners. This scheme to start tbe mines was adopted to break the natiosal strike in 1894. Operators' Move Succetsful. The operators agreed to bear the ex pense and two mines were put in opera tion and the men were guarded by depu ties. The miues selected were the Manown of the Yougbiogheny Gas Coal company and the Derr mine of Osborne, Saeger & Co. At the former mine 18 railroad care were loaded tbe first day. It was expensive coal, but when the bills were settled no operator could he found to tell what it bad cost. Various estimates wore giveu and it was conceded by some that it did not cost a cent less than $5 a ton. But it had the desired effect. A similar successful effort was made by the operators several years ago, when a number of colored men were brought in from the south and foreigners wero imported from other localities. They remained after the strike was ended and are still in the district and among, the surplus of miuers. President Dolan of the miners organi zation does not believe tbe movement will be a success, as the strikers are more in earnest than in any former struggle. "The operators may talk about their inability to piy the advance du account of having taken contracts at tbe present rate," said ho. "When they made those cou tracts they were fairly warned that a higher raw would be demanded. Wo called for :i confer ence and told them to not make any contracts based on the low rate of min ing. So tbat there could be no possi bility of a misunderstanding wc issued a public notice and had it printed in the" daily papers. They wero told plainly not to make contracts based on a 54 cent mining rate. Wc did not take any advantage of them, for they know what was coming. When I spoke of a strike they merely laughed and said: 'We will have you starved out iu two weeks.' They see now where they were mis taken and want to start, bnt they will not succeed. We will establish a camp and march at every mine where the at tempt is made to operate. We will fight to tho bitter end." BLOOD WILL PROBABLY FLOW. Intention of Pittsburg Aline Operators to Engage Pitikertou Men. Cleveland, Aug. 19. The decision reached by the op3rafeors of the Pitts burg district at their conference here last night, to open their mi nes regard less of the consequence, will probably cause serious trouble Acsordiug to local coal men it i3 the iuteu tiou of the Pittsburg operators to engage Pinkcrton men to protect their nonunion men. This action on their part will probably precipitate a terrible climax to the great strike, and the operators admit that blood will probably flow. In speaking of the probable result of the operators' decision, Loftus Cuddy of the Cuddy-Muddly Coal company said: "If it is necessary to do so, a whele army of detectives will be employed to protect our men, and if tho worst comos they will be supplied with Gntling gnus and other equipments to convince tho strik ers that we mean business." Mr. Cuddy's statement is upheld by J. P. Zerbe, president of the Ohio and Penn sylvania Coal company. Jlecsago From Audree. Christiana, Aug. IB. Information received here confirms the story pub lished in a dispatch from Hatumerfest, Norway, saying that one of the search ers for Herr Audree met the sealing vessel Aiken about July 23, and was in formed by har captain that one of the crew had shot a carrier pigeon between North Capo r.ud Seven islands, on the north coast of Lapland, bearing a mes sage from the exploror, addressed to The Bladet of Stockholm, which reads as follows: "Eighty-two degrees passed. Good journey northward. Audree." The date of the message was illegible. The pigeon also carried a letter ad dressed to The Bladet, bnt the captain declined to surrender either the dispatch or the pigeon, and continued his voyage north wa rd. Kentucky Uribery Cases.

Henry Ga ble, an old and experienced miner, who was one of the first to join the rush-to the Klondike, has returned, and telte a story calculated to deter others from go-, ing north in search of gold. T7hen the news of gold strikes reached this coun try Gable determined to seek his fortune, in the Yukon, leaving his mines in Ari zona, and camo to San Francisco. Here hehoughthis outfit atid supplies and left on tho Umatilla threo weeks ago en routo for the Klondiko via Juneau and Chilcoot pass. Now he is back, having sold his outfit, which cose $235. He learned from many experienced mining men at Juneau and further up that it would be. snicido to go hef ore spring. He says: "The Alaskan mining men are positive that nearly all who are try ing to get to Dawson City will be frozen up en route until spring, and that their fate is uncertain. I wid not answer for the lives of tho tenderfecb who are now going," San Francisco, Aug. 17. Thomas Mageo, who accompanied his son to Dyea, writes to the Associated Press from that point to tho effect that the ig norance displayed by the crowds who are flocking to the Klondiko fields is lamentable. Aug. 7 a miner wan drowned while packing his goods over a foot log aboat a mile and a half from Skaguay. A teamster charged $10 for bringing the corpse iuto town, and this so enraged the paople that ho was or dered to leave town at once. He was offered 2,000 for his wagon and team before he left for Juuoau. DENVER AND BLACK HILLS. Prospective Kail Cc mm anient ion IJetween the Two Mining Centers. Denver, Aug. 18. A movement look ing to the connection of Denver and the Black Hiils region of South Dakota by railroad is now said to ha in progress in Wyoming. The Burlington Railway company has placed a party of surveyors in the field to survey a route for a road between Newcastle aul L3ad City, S. D. This route, it is claimed, in con junction with tho Cheyenne Northern line, which i3 liable to rass into the pos session of tho Burlington when it is of fered for sale, will practically open com munication by rail between Denver and the great mining region of South Da kota. The work of the engineers at this time, when tho sale of theCheyciine Northern is appro tchiug. is regarded as strong evidence that the long desired communication between the two min ing centers will bo consummated at an early date.

MIGHTY JUMP IN PRICE OF-4 WHEAT. September Closed at Highest rlkt It lis Beached Since 1SL. Chicago, Ang. 19. Septemher wheat closed at 88 cents yesterday, the high est point it has reached since 1801 and an advance of a full 4 cents since Tuesday. The closing was a sceno long to be remembered, the pit in the last few minutes of trading becoming a struggling mass of excited speculators trying frantically to buy. But there was literally no wheat for sale and the efforts of tho shorts took the market off its feet, Septemher jumping nearly a cent. Decemher showed a still more radical advance, and for a time sold on even terms with the nearer future. At the closo 88 cents was hid, or b cents above tho closing figures Tuesday.

The advance began with a sensational advance in Liverpool quotations Wed nesday morning instead of the weak- ucaa ftouciutiy cAcbicu. jluio nu im- lowed np hy rumors of a big jump in curb prices ot Paris, the market being closed on account of a holiday. On top of these factors was a big demand from foreign houses and reports that all of last night's offers to the other side had been accepted, including three cargoes for France. Spiing wheat news also brought in lots of buying orders, it being considered very bullish by the trade here, as the weather is too cold and wet in many sections for harvest iug.operations.
