Mitchell Vincent, of Onawa, who for many yeais has been doing construction work in Iowa for the Chicago and Northwestern Railway company, and who has an intimate knowledge of Sioux City and Pacific affaire, was in Sioux City yesterday, and when asked what in his judgment would be the outcome of the Sioux City and Pacific sale in une, he said: 'The Northwestern cannot af ford to loBe the road. I believe that when the other roads which might possibly be bidders, oome to understand that by their bid ding they only would cause the Northwestern to bid higher than they otherwise would have to bid, they will not attempt to break into the game. But even if they should, the Northwestern, situ ated as it is, could bid all the others to death. Understand, the road is bonded for $16,000 a mile, and the Northwestern owns the bonds. It is not alone the line south from Sioux City which is so valuable, but the Sioux City and Pacific terminals in Sioux City are to be taken into account. For instance, if a new railroad were today to attempt to enter the city of Chicago from the west it would co3t that toad more to get into the heart of Chicago than it would for the construction from Chicago to the Missouri river. The only way a road could enter Chicago would be by the grace of some railroad which already owns termi nals there. Well, what is true of Chicago is true of Sioux City in a smaller way. The Sioux City and Pacific's eight blocks along the river front are too valuable to lose." Speaking of the possibility of the building this year of North western's proposed Moville exten sion, Mr. Vincent said a survey for the line was located in 18S6 and that all that would be neces sary before construction work could be started would be the re locating of the line. This, he said, would not take much time. The line could be built in short order. 3 MoElroy who has been in Ft Dodge for several weeks past, is expested to arrive in the city Saturday and will spend a few days here visiting his family.

Missouri Valley has had at times some very excellent orches tras for terpsichorean purposes but never in it history has it been the home of a high class concert orchestra till now, and every mu sic lover who didu't attend the concert at the Methodist church last night missed a rare treat. Those acquainted with the personnel of the orchestra from time to time in the past were aware that there was material to produce good classical music, but no predecessor of Prof. Adams has ever succeeded in bringing out the best that Svas in them. This evidently he has done to a marvelous extent. The city is to be congratulated in the acquisi tion of such an excellent leader and cultured gentleman aB Mr Adams. The orchestra as it is now organized and rendering the music it does, savors of the me tropolitan in every respect. The music is classical and tec nique faultless of this superb company and all those who are judges and can enjoy the "real thing" in music should reproach themselves for not patronizing so meritorious an entertainment as that of last evening. May Prof Adams be with us till our people will be anxious to hear whatever he may bring be fore them, which, without doubt they ultimately will be. "Lover of the Genuine" A Raging, Roaring Flood Washed down a telegraph line which Chas. C. Ellis, of Lisbon. Ia., had to repair.

Just before ho went to sea for the last time lie was present at a dinner, dur ing which lie sat between the artist and Sir William Hamilton. Nelson was expressing to Hamilton his regret that he had not, iu his youth, acquired some taste for art and some discrimination iu jiulgiug It. "But," said he, turning to West, "there is one picture whose power I do feel. I never pass a shop where your 'Death of Wolfe' is in the window without being stopped by it." West made some gracious answer to the compliment, and Nelson went on, "Why have you painted no more like it?" "Because, my lord," West replied, "there are no more subjects." "Ah," said the sailor, "I didn't think of that." "But, my lord," continued West, "I am afraid your intrepidity will yet furnish me with another such scene, and if it should I shall certainly avail myself of it." "Will you?" said Nelson—"will you, Mr. West? Then I hope I shall die in the next battle!" A few days later ho sailed, his strangely expressed aspiration was re alized, and the scene lives upon can vas. Worse Tlinn Ills Own.

"No, in troth, yer honor, worse luck," replied Mat. "Well, call at the house this evening on your way home," said the gentle man. "I'll leave an old suit of mine with the butler for you." A few days later, when showing a party of visitors through the gardens, he was much annoyed to see Mat look ing, if jKissible, more a scarecrow than ever. "Why are you still wearing those old clothes, Mat?" he asked. "Sure, yer honor, they're the best I have," replied Mat. "But did you not get the suit I left for you the other day?" asked the gen tleman. "Indeed, an I did, thank yer honor kindly," replied Mat "but, sure, I had to lave them at homo to be mended."— London Tit-Bits. How 4lie Arllm Wan Called. When Henry S.
