NE\VS \ FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS Conduct of Oonnty Treasurer Rccd Forms the Latest Political Sensation. OVER FEES PAID TO EXTRA ATTORNEYS III * OppnnriiU Clnlm Hrnl U ltp ] ion ll > tc for the Money Sreitrcii by IJurho and RannilyVhnt the Treasurer Bay * About It. The latest political sensation Is one in which County Treasurer W. D. Heed Is deeply interested , As stated some time IIRO In THE HUB , the county treasurer is the can didate Upon whom , perhaps , the hardest light is halnp ninitu of any of the county can- ilidatcs. For several days past the repub lican leaders have been looking over the history of his ofllclal career and now make some interesting charges. The collection of the JSX)0 ( ) and mo TO of personal taxes from the Union 1'acillo Hallway company , to which so much reference lias been made In the columns ot the onlcial organ of the local republican party , is thu b.isls of the main charge , which Is that he has been guilty of piling up costs iignliist the taxpayers. It will bo remembered that some tlmo prior to the scl/.uro of the Union Pacllle locomotives , Messrs. Uurko snd Casady wore engaged as attornoyH for the county treas' urcr. In accordance with their aavlco blx teen engines were seized , and when the company at last dccldud to plank down the cash the 5 per cent ucnalty was collected ac cording to law to pay the expenses of the soi/.urc. This fi per cent amounted to Jl'J'J. ' Scut III n lllc Hill. At the last session of tlio Board of Super visors a bill was presented by Burke & Casady for ? 500 for attorney fees. By re quest of some of the local democratic leaders they wore Induced to keep the bill until after tlio board had adjourned , fearlnir that the presentation Just nt tlio opening of the political campaign might work damage to ituctVs chances for re-election. Immediately after the board adjourned S. B. WaOsworth called at the olllce of the county auditor , accompanied by Mr. Casady , and uuthorired Auditor Matthews to pay the bill winch Oasady presented. Ho stated that ttio bill was all right , and that the suuervlsors had talked it over and decided that it ought to bo paid. Matthews accord ingly paid it. Tlio republican party leaders claim that this feu should have been paid out of the 5 per cent ponaltj iinovo referred to , instead of allowing Mr. Heed to slip the MUU into his pocket and bleed the taxpayers for an extra $ .100. r.xptuimtlnu of the Treasurer. Mr. Heed was scon by a BEB reporter yes terday afternoon unit asked what he had to say about the matter. " 1 have not had the time tn collect the necessary llgurcs , " was his reply , "to make as complete defense as 1 shall make 'in the course of the next twenty-four hours , but I can say truthfully that the taxpayers have never boon cheated out of one cent during my term of oftlcc. The law provides that if the county treasurer seizes the property of delinquent taxpayers no can receive no extra pay for his services , but if ho appoints a deputy the deputy shall receive 6 per cent of the amount collected. 1 appointed Mr. Wadsworth my deputy , and he got tlio $ UKJ. p.iylng. out of that amount tiie wages of all the men that as sisted in Hei/.inj : the engines and taking cave of them while they were in his custody. Be fore the sei/uro was over made tlio board en gaged Burke & Casady to act as my legal advisers. This was as a favor to County Attorney Oriran , who said that ho had so much to looK ufter that it would be impossi ble to attend to this part of the work. As long as they were hired by the Board of Supervisors they had a right to a just re muneration for their services. I did not en gage them and had nothing to do with pay ing them. And I never received 1 cent of the 3 per cent penalty. " ' Wasn't it because Organ had Just been taken into partnership with Wright it Bald win , the Union Pacillc attorneys , that lie couldn't take charge of the case ? " inquired tlio reporter. ' Well , now , I didn't ' say that , " was there- i 'y. ' Uu a .Mora * < urions Charge. A further charge made against Hcedils that he has ueen loaning money belonging to the county and receiving interest therefor , a thing which the law expressly says shall render the treasurer liable to a flno. This charge is supported by an uflldavlt bearing the signature of Emil II..effort , who was formerly employed In the Cattlemen's bank of this city. In this affidavit Loffert says thiit from the opcniinr of Heed's term of of- lieu until January 1 , Ih'J.J , Rood kept tin avor- ace nf about $10,000 on deposit in the bank and received i ) per cent interest on the sum , the interest being paid monthly. The im plication is that he lias slipped this interest down into tils pocket as an addition to his salary of W.OOO per annum. "All this troubln is raised by the oftlclals of the Citizen's State bank , " answered Mr. Heed , when his attention was called to the tlio charge ; "ills mere spite work. There are fifteen banks In Pottawattamie county , and I have been keeping anywhere from $ (10,000 ( to * 1CO.OOO in fourteen of thorn all the time , dividing up tlio amount as talrly as I could. 1 had private reasons for not want ing to keep anv of the money in the Citizen's bank , and all their attempts at coaxing , bribing , and bull-dozing have been unable to make mo change niy mind , It is an absolute falsehood. I have never had ono dollar of the county funds loaned out to any bank during my term of oflico , and I have a statc- , mont from Mr. Leffert to the effect that ho did not know what ho was doing when ho signed that paper.

Yesterday was "temperance Sunday" in ' .ho Sunday schools , according to the inter national series of Sabbath school lessons , and in all cf the Sabbath schools ol the city , as well all In other titles tn the land , the childrenVcro given lessons in temperance matters , But the most effective object lesson was given to a mixed audience of men , , children aud dogi at a latur hour in the afternoon. It was In "Prcshytctlan alley , " the private areaway between Main and Pearl streets In the rear of the Baldwin block. The audience lillcd both ends of tlio alley and spread out into the streets. Tlio lesson was given by a poorly tiothrd , laded out llttlo woman , who was trying to got her big , burly drunken husonnd home. She had found him In a drunken stupor lying among fcomo beer kegs In the alley. Her anxiety to get him away before the police discovered mm nerved her weak arms and she lifted the man bodily to his feet , but lie reeled ovrr and falling carried her to the earth. The sight of n faded shawl mixed up with n man , and nn alley and beer kegs for a background made a plijturo that quickly attracted r.ttrntion , and soon both ends of the alloy \toro tilled with curious spectators , livery shade of feeling that motes men and women was depleted on the faces of the crowd that watched the pro ceedings , but Jeers rather than sympathy were given to encourage the llttlo woman In her devoted work. As the crowd gathered her fear increased and with the strength * desperation she halt led and half carried the drunken man through the crowd and away to some cheerless homo before n police man came around to inquire the cause of the gathering.

Murray of Hanscom Park Methodist church delivered the following excellent sermon yesterday : Text : Psalms xl.10. . MOID to bo ilesltcU am they than gold. "No comparison to show the value of the words of God's holy book could bo better than this , " said the speaker. "No gold mint Is engaged in such noble work as it fashions and stamps the coins of a realm as occupies the tireless press where the deathless utter ances of the world's master minds nro trans ferred to tlio printed page , by whoso in fluence , from age to age. these prophets of the race are to direct the thought and shape the lives of men. But while wo may speak with warm enthusiasm of the value of tlio world's great books it behooves us to re member that there is one book of which the words of our text are especially true , nud that book the bible. The bible is precious , said the speaker , from its antiquity , sharing with the Vedas and tlio songs of the Shi Icing the honors of great age. During long centuries it has passed through severe conflicts , its historic , scientific and prophetic accuracy being at tacked , but successfully defended. Rawlln- son's opinion of the bible's historic accuracy was given and particular instances of the historic and scientific reliability of the bible were cited. The prophesies of the bible were not like the equivocal utterances of heaven oracles , sure to bo right In ony event ; but are plain and explicit. They were uttered centuries before the events they foretold took place and were remarkably fulfilled. A long ana minute prophesy concerning Egypt was cited and the fulfilling history related.- This book abounds in wonderful prophesies , wonderfully fulfilled. Compare it with the books of the world , test its super natural claims by the severest scrutiny. Lot science , history and logic bend their united energies , that imperfections may be detected it : this sacred volume of truth. "Llko cold tried in the lire , " it will come forth ' 'more to bo desired , purer , more precious , sired than gold , yea , than much tine gold. " As a literary monument the bible stands supremo. The masters of the world's letters proclaim Us grandeur. Great writers , yes , Kiciu national moraiurus imvu risen uiruugu its inspiration. The noblest productions of the painter's brush , the sculptor's chisel , the architect's plan , the pout's fancy , the philosopher's musing , the statesman's con structive brain , in these wonderful modern centuries of European and Amni lean civiliza tion , have como to life and glory through the power of the words of this book. Continuing bo said the bible is a book of religion. Not for its age , its science , its history , its prophecies , its literary grandeur , which uro but incidental , but for its theology , its morals , Its spiritual lite , shin ing through these pointing the world to Goa is this noble volume to bo so highly prized. That which gives the diamond its great value is its power to wonderfully grasp and throw back to our eyes the dory of the sunbeams. Glistening , glowing , Hushing- , ttiese rays of light from every /acot spea.c the clory of the sun and the purity of the rccious gem. So of the Jewels of truth In this great book. Back from each chapter and verse shine the light , the life , the glory of the divine nature in beauty and majesty. The bible contains , with its revelation of od , a revelation ot salvation. It not only reproves our sins and pricks our consciences with its sharp warnings and true words as to sin's slnfulncsi , but it offers us mercy and cleansing , A man whose eyes are blinded by sin cannot behold the golden words of this book. Ho is forced to read with his lingers the sharp , raised letters , which reprove his sins and foretell God's judgments. As ho reads these ho shudders , ho trembles , ho cries for mercy. God opens his eyes , and now , between those lines of sharp , raised Jotters , ho beholds God's ' golden promises and invitations. "God Is lovoj whosoever cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out. " "If we confess our sins ho is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from nil unrighteousness , " And all those other golden texts of mercy and of life. Words of gold ! And from cover to cover there is not a page that does not glow with the glory of these promises. It is the one book that points for us the way of a pure life on earth and in heaven , , All the centuries witness to the fulfill inctu of these promises. The characters of those who yield to the truth uro transformed by the grace of God. It is tlio crowning evi- dcnco of the divine clip ractor of the bible and its crowning glory that it is able , and it alone is able to make men like Uod. Gold is prized not so much for what It is as for its purchusini ; power , for what It will do for us. So of this book of gold , It posscsscb lAore inugio powers than gold which can purchase ploasurcs , gratify ambi tions , conquer kingdoms. 'This book leads us to the joy of pardon , the sonshlp of God and the conquest of spiritual kingdoms. The bible's power is primarily with the individual. Fanatics have bapti/oU kinir and subjects in a day , but a real spiritual conquest can only como as from individual to individual the word and grace of Goa are Imparted , Thus tt has boon that nations in the course of centuries have been conquered for Christ and have undergone a spiritual transformation from heathenism to faith in the true God , from brutality to noble man hood , from Ignorance and degradation to civilization , from warring upon ODD another to benlnccnt philanthropy. The speaker closed with an appeal for the etudy of the bible in the public schools. In these schools we study the literature and religion of great heathen peoples und note the effect upon the character of men of these literatures and faitln. Wo should study also this bible for its literary worth ; wo should trace the effect of this great book us it has passed from race to race , and as by magic it has wrought such wouarous trans * formations and ushered lu the glories of civ ilization. Lot it bo studied by all as a part of the literature ana history of the world. LIFE AROUND it COJISTOCK Senator Stewart Regales His Wnsliincton Friends with Storie3..6f the Minos.

[ Staff Corre spondence of TUB Hun , ] William Morris Stewart of Nevada , who lias spoken longer and more frequently than any other man In the senate during the Controversy over the silver repeal bill , sat In the senate restau rant yesterday , after the delivery of nn- ether ono of his bitter denunciations of President Cleveland's anti-silver policy , and as ho stroked his long , snow white beard and partook of n light lunch ho talked tn a husity voice of some of his early mining experi ences nnti the dantors to which ho had been subjected nil his life. Senator Stewart , who Is familiarly referred to around the capjtol as "Old Santa Cla.is , " was started on Ills reminiscences by an observation upon the part of his populist confrorco , Senator Allen ot Nebraska , about the physical hard ships which u few of the silver sonatorn had been subjcctcu to during the selgo of almost three months upon the silver biil. "Oh , tins la nothing more than the hard ships I have been bearing nil my life , which has now run over sixty-four years , " said the venerable-looking Nevada senator , as he straightened his slx-foot-thrco figure of Immense proportions and brushed his great snowy beard outwardly from an In ward stroke. Tlio only difference between the fatigue in this contest and the ones 1 have been used to In my mining experience In ! S40-oO U that no danger lias been experienced hero. I used to work almost day and night in M'J around tlio mining camps of the Pacific slope , and carried my life in my hands. I never got tired. If we bad ten silver sen ators here who wore willing to light as you and 1 are. Senator Allen , we would make this lleht continue day and night until the 1st of January , at least. " "You would hardly remind a man of hard- shlp.or danger , " observed Senator Allen. When the l.irVnn In thu IlnUtor. There was a pause for some seconds , dur ing which Senator Stewart turned ills lareo , ruddy face toward the floor , and while his prcat steel-blue eyes peered thoughtfully at his feet he stroked his flowing whiskers with both hands. Finally ho said : "Well , I remember a period in the mining camps of California and Nevada which covered n number of years , when 1 really didn't expect to live the day out each morn ing that 1 wont to my work , with a pick in ono hand ami a revolver in the other. Ire- call an experience I hndMn Nevada when it was the proper thing to challenge a man to light a duel if tlio least offense was offered , and it was very easy In those days to offend it man. Men were high strung ; every onto haa his nerves upon the highest tension by' tile excitement inci dent to great metal finds , all kinds of depre dations and crime by-white men and In dians , and a general .epoch of conflict. I think I was the best pistol shot in all that country during these da.\s. I wus u power fully-built and vigorou'i young man. My eyes wore quick and "my nerves steady. Why. I used to sometimes shoot birds on the wing with a pistol. I took a very active part lu politics , and , havinga , llttlo more money than some of the men , and being Inclined to- spend It freolv at times ; I invited all of the jealousies incident .to''u mixed mininir com munity. Frequently f momentarily ex pected some ono to shoot mo down without announcement , or challengemo ta light a duel. I remember the ilrst time I had a di rect intimation that I was to be challenged. A man came to my oflice and asked mo what 1 would do if I were' challenged to fight a duel. I had not beforehand made up my mind what course to pursue , but tne pres ence of danger made mo quick wilted. " 'I would kill the man that brought mo the challenge , ' was my reply. Ills I'lun tor Avoiding Ducla. " 'You don't mean to say that you would shoot a man for simply acting for u friend , do you ? ' said the man who haa come to me , ' his' eyes flashing excitement and his body quivering in fear. ' "That is exactly what I would do ; the Ilrst man that comes to me with a challenge will drop dead in his shoos ; I will shoot him on the spot'and I omphncizcd my statement by placing my hand upon a heavy revolver at my bolt. Looking my caller straight In the eyes 1 saw siowiv : i. cs , sir , you cansiaie to any ono who is Interested that the first man , and every subsequent man , who carries a challenge for a duel to me will die by my own hands , and that If any ono wants to carry a challenge to mo ho must como pre pared to shoot and begin slicotintr us soon us he delivers his challenge.1" "Would you have carried out your threat ? " was asked. "There is not the least doubt of it , " re plied Senator Stewart. "It was the only tiling n man could ( Jo under" the circum stances. I made up my mind in an Instant to follow out that plan , and as sure us I sit here I would have shot the man who brought mo the challenge as quickly us I could have drawn. Why not ? A challenge to light a duel Is a deadly message it means that either the challenger or the man challenged must die and I don't see any difference bo- twenn shooting the man who brings the deadly message und the man who challenges you. " The conversation drifted Into stories about duels and pistol shootlne. Then it turned Into feats of bravery , when the grizzled old miner senator from Nevada looked up sharply and said : Saved His rurtnnr'M Life. "I saw my mining partner do the most daring feat of bravery I over heard of or expect to hour. My partner in the curly Go's was n rugged and as powerfully built man as myself. The only trouble with him was that ho would occasionally go off on u sprco and had u fondness for gambling. When he drank deeply ho got into disputes and lights. Nearly every time ho was in a drinking mood and ho lolt mo I expected to hoar of his sudden death , On one occasion , alter ho had been away from mo a few hours , I learned that ho was down town in a bar room a little Intoxicated and playing curds. Somehow I hud a prom,6nltlon that my part ner's life was in danger , und I struck out from the mine to tli llttle town , n short distance away. W" ° n I entered tlio bar room I saw my parTnpr sitting at a table , Ho hud been drinUhi 'heavily , but was not drunk , Opposlta him sat u notorious ruf fian , who had kllled'tito'iiy ' a man. The Ilrst thine 1 saw x > hen my eyes foil upon the two men was the rufll.ih' draw u gun , cock it , and sliovo it IntoUho face of my part ner. Instantly 1 npxpected to eo the ( lash , hear thoj , report mid to witness the braiolne of my best friend. It took mo but a second to spring forward and jerk life tltool from under tlio runlan. As ho fell toMio floor he pulled the trigger or his iiig truiii nri tie revolver gave a tcrritlo report , nilrti'tliu bullet passed so closely over the head * of my partner as 10 nearly touch the B6a'lp. In a jiffy I hau irrasped the pistol hand of mv partner's adversary - vorsary and disarmed him. Then I rushed my partner out of tire place and uwaj. "Chagrined , humiliated und infuriated that ruRlun went about the camp declaring that ho would shoot my partner on sight ; und ho meant to do It , Some days after wards my partner and I were sitting on the ground near our mine eating dinner. We were in deep conversation , und never ex pected that danger was near. Suddenly , without the least warning , the man sprang Immediately In front of us , und with a cocked revolver pointed close to thu face of my partner , ho exclaimed ; " 'Now I have got you. By , I intend to kill you this minute.1 CuulUu't Scare Thlf SI mi , "Wo were sitting fifteen or twenty foot away from our pistols , Neither of us had a firearm or other weapon of defense upon us. It was an intensely hot day. Great beads of perspiration were already pouring down our faces. I looked down from the mountain side to the little mining camp called a town , and thought that toy partner at least would never see that place ncraln. His time hnd come How my hoaft ached that I could not raise n hand In his defense 1 There ho sat , with the weapon which was to take his life looking him in the fare. If I had had a pistol In my hand , cocked and pointed nt tlio runlan. I do not believe 1 would have pulled the trigger , for It would have cost my partner's life. There Is no doubt that the ruffian , a crack shot and experienced In such close business , would have blown the top of my partner's head off oven after a bullet had passed through his own brnln or heart. There was a moment of deep silence. My partner looked the ruffian straight tn ' .ho eyes while I looked at him. Not n muscle moved In his faco. There was not a quiver in his eyes. I never expect to see such n critical moment or fool the keen pangs of such a scone. The bosom of the flannel shirt on my partner was full open and hi * great breast was barol llo had on no other clothIng - Ing but trousers and boots. Looking his assailant steadily in the eyes ho raised his hands to his breast , and taking hold of the open lapels of his flannel shirt pulled them farther open. Then , rising slowly and keep ing his eyes steadily upon the man with the drawn revolver hn exclaimed , with all the passion and earnestness possible for n man to show , but without the least sign of fear : " 'Shoot , you scoundrel ) shoot , take my life , you villain and coward I' "I tell you , centlcmcn , that was a dra matic scene. The runlan quailed. Ills face quivered , his eyes dropped , and ho lowered his pistol. As ho did so ho exclaimed : " 'I cannot take the life of such a bravo man. Hero Is my hand I' " \\hou Stawurt Thumped UU Mnn. A few minutes afterward Senator Stevtart related this Incident : "After 1 had well established my reputa tion In regard to killing any man who brought mo a challenge to fight a duel I was told that ono fellow Intended to slioot mo the first tlmo lie mot mo if ho conld not hlmsolf arrange for a meeting according to the code duello. One evening 1 was passing along the street and saw my adversary upon the sidewalk opposite me. Ho was off his guard , did not sco me , and I ran across the street and was upon him before lie realised it. " 'Hero , you scoundrel , I understand you have said that you would kill mo on sight , ' and 1 bore him to tlio ground. To emphasize my omphasii 1 churned him up and down on the ground and gave him two or throe sharp strokes with my list , ex claiming as I did so that I would teach him how to threaten my life. " "ApoloRi/o ind big , you scoundrel , or I ill beat the life out , of you 1' I continued to say ns I pounded him up and down on the irround. Finally the fellow apologl/cd and assured mo that no would not challenge or slioot me. Then 1 invited him to a neighbor- inc bar and wo took a friendly drink to- irothcr. From that day wo were fast friends. " PEIIIIV S. II RATH. o MONEY FOB THE PEOPLE. ICIfilit Dollar * Mori * l'i-i- Capita null Ilinvlo ( lot. It. Lixcoihf , Oct. 28. To the Editor of TUB BKE : Knowing as I do your friendly atti tude toward the masses I make free to sub mit to you and the many thousands of read ers of your able paper a few thoughts on the all-absorbing iltmnclal question of the day. The inasccs have lone been clamoring for more money. Congressmen , financiers and statesmen have been wrestling with the problem of how to safely increase the circu lating medium of our country. And us wo have n plan wo beg for space to sub-nit It and invite discussion and criticism , for if the plan Is good it should bo pushed and If not wo and others desire to know. Our plan Is this : Your renders no doubt quite generally understand that the govern ment of the United States now Issues money called "national currency" to national banks of the whole country , all readv for final sig natures of proper otllcers , which said money is secured by government bonds , deposited by the banking corporation with the proper department at Washington. i ow , wo would go just a step farther. We would ask congress to specify the features of a general bond law for the states similar to what Nebraska now has , also to provide a bureau or department , or cloth the comp troller of currency with additional powers , to authorize the Issuance of currency guar- antc'ed by the government and signed by proper government officials , all ready for countersigning by the proper officers of u city , county or state , to which it was to bo transmitted and to be secured , not by government bonds , but by the bonds of cities , counties ana states , duly and prop erly voted under a rigid and carefully guarded bond law for internal improve ments. Said bonds to run twenty years , to bear no interest till past duo ana to bo pay able at the rate of 5 per cent per annum. After having passed the scrutiny of the proper state ofllcluls the bonds shall bo deposited - posited in Washington City and currency issued therefor to ttio full face value of said bonds. , The government , to see to the gath ering in and dostroyingof the currency when redeemed by tlio borrower. Just as ft now sees to gatncring up and destroying tlio cur- i-cnev of national banks that have naid up. In brlof the above is the plan. Let us suppose , for illustration , that Omaha wants to make some improvement that will cost the taxpayers fcJUO.OUO ns a starter. Under the present law you vote the bonds , say on twenty years time ut 0 per cent inteivst , and at the end ot twenty years you have paid out the enormous sum of f240,000 in interest alone , and still owe tlio entire original debt of $200,000 , while under our plan , by paying only 5 per cent per annum for twenty years tlio whole debt Is paid. And , as nearly all kinds of internal Improvements are a sort of charity , Is it not quite enough to pay for them once , and Is it not llttlo enough to usk of the general government that it lend u hand , as indicated , to relieve the burdens of the people and clvo a powerful Impetus to public improvements over the entire nation ? Wo are of the opinion that the loss to the currency by lire , flood , oto. , will bo quite enough to compensate the government for the part it takes in the mutter , but if the law makers think otherwise then let them provide for nn annual tax of , say one-half of 1 per cent , to bo refunded so far as not ex pended when bonds nro redeemed. Again , if tlio lawmaker fears too great a volume of money U will bo easy to provide that no city of 1,000 inhabitants or over shall vote bonds under this law In excess of say f > per cent porcaplta , and that the county may vote say 5 per cent additional , and that the state may bond Itself for 2 per cent per capita , or some such restriction. But us there are towns and < villages Innumerable too small to vote bonds for national improve ments , the average increase could not ex ceed fS per capita under the 12 per cent limit. Wo believe such n currency would bo stable , niul yet flexible and elastic. For us the years go by many localities would bo paying up and others continually coining to the rescue with new bonds and fresh money , It would bo in the power of the people ut nlnjost any time to Increase the volume of money , make needed improvements und keep the hungry toilers led and clothed , and at homo. It would meet the growth of the country , for ns wealth and population increased the volume of money could bo also increased. And this money would go not to the banking corpora tions to bo loaned , but direct to the men who toll and furnish mutPriul for the improve ments. And thus tlio question so often usked.How will wo get the money If the government does make It ? " IH fully solved , for it gees direct to the people of every state und every county , As to its being good nn ono can question. This plan would also turn millions of money now put into this cluis of securities uy uiu capitalist , cacn ycur into other channels , und thus roll around again and again thu monster wheel of progress , unfolding to the smiling masses an era of prosperity so long ana so devoutly wished for , But wo anticipate opposition from the capitalist , who will thus ho robbed of a line and sure source of revenue ; und it will re quire many a sting from such fearless udvo- cutcs of the people's rights us THE BKB to spur our sluggish congressional body up and onward to tlio point of doing this thing for the taxpayers of the nation. .UMKH F.

During the past week there has been u big crowd of Omuha people attending the World's fair. The boys had a line time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Some of tncm nave rciurneu nnu are now engaged in relating their adventures to friends. Hut it remained for Thomas Ormsby , Michael Mul- lin nnd Peter Bouse to captivate tlio na tives of the Midway pluisanco. After tak ing in tlio main part of the fair they wan dered down among the Midway freaks. When they reached the Irish village , Ormsby executed the skirt dance to the music of the piper from Kerry. Then the gang hired some camels and pro ceeded to win the plaudits of admiring friends by their graceful riding , "Spud" Furrlsh chartered a donicoy and acted as ail advance guard for the procession. Wnno passing the Persian village , 11 Is al leged , Tom saw one of the Persian beauties. With his natural gallantry ho raised his hat and made a bow to the fair damsel. That is where ho made u mistake. Ho has not rode a camel since the time 'he was a major In the Egyptian army , several decades ago , and was.thcroforo somewhat out of practice. As soon as lie turned his attention from the camel to the girl the ungainly beast stumbled and Tom was thrown over its head. A Co lumbian guard arrested the camel and res cued Tom. while "Micky" und Pete had to cot "Spud" to llfU them down from thch high porches , The boys now Bay that camel riding is a base delusion. Ormsby has con- eluded that camels would not do for jiutro ! service. H'iVI TJIKH l-'OHKUsl * 7 H. Fiilr mnl AViirmor u tlio Promise fur Ne. bniHlcit Toilny. WABIIIXOTOS , Oct. 20.
