Preelamation Setting Apart Thursday,
Nov. 24, for Thanksgiving.
WAIHINTONS. Nov. 4.-The following
proolamation was issued this afternoon:
"The gifts of God to our people the vast
year have been so abundant and so special
that the spirit of devout thanksgiving
awaits not the call, but only the appoint
ment of the day when it may have common
expression. lie has stayed the pestilence
at our doors; he has given us more love for
free civil institutions, in the ceation of
which his directing providence was so con
spicuous; he has awakened deeper rever
ence for laws; he has widened our philan
thropy by a call to succor distress in other
lands; he has blessed our schools and is
bringing forward a patriotic and CGod-fear
ing generation to execute his areat and
benevolent designs for our country: he hna
given us great increase in material wealth
and wide diffusion of contentment and
comfort in the homes of our people; he has
given his grace to the sorrowing.
"Now, therefore. I, Benjamin Harrison,
president of the United -tates, do call upon
all our people to observe, as has been wont,
Thurs !ar, the twenty-fourth day of this
month of November, as a day of thankse
giving to God for his mercies, and sunpli
oation for his continued care and grace."

Did Not Cut Rates.
OM4AHA Nov. 4. - General Passenger
Agent Lomax, of the Union Pacific, said
this morning that notwithstanding the
Union Pacific has been out of the associa
tion since Nov. 1. he proposed to be very
conservative regarding rates and would
maintain them as long as other roads ad
hered to the agreement. "The people an
ticipated I would cut rates," said Iomax,
'when we went out of the association, but
instead of this I have put in winter tourist
rates at a slight advance over last year.
This will be our poller throughont."
