PEE DOZEN, ISo, Ji Ri m Ci Ji DOLLIVEfi AT LINCOLN. He Spoke at Bryants Home City Last Week — Greatest fiemonsti-a* tion Ever Seen There. A week ago Saturday Congressman Dolliver spoke in Lincoln, Neb., candidate Bryan's home. It was the greatest political demonstration ever made in the city. Following are paragraphs from the report of the Lincoln Call: Lincoln never witnessed anything like it from a pyrotechnic standpoint and the thousands of people who thronged the streets went into ecstacy as the brilliant pageant marched along the route laid out from Eleventh and P streets to the Lansing theatre where Congressman J. P, Dolltver of Iowa delivered an address, the equal of which has never been heard in Lincoln. The republicans have been anticipating the coming of J. P. Dolliver for several weeks. His greeting at the train by large delegations from all republican clubs was only the beginning of one of the most enthusiastic rallies Lincoln ever witnessed. The preliminary arrangements for the meeting and the organization of the parade was unique and effective in every sense of the word, and all the local committees deserve much credit for the success that has everywhere greeted their undertaking. The scene at the starting point, the Capital hotel, was indeed interesting and thrilling. Uniformed men began to appear near this point as early as 6 o'clock and by 8 the wide streets were filled with the various republican marching clubs of the city. On P street the Zouaves, in brilliantly colored uniforms, stood in two open columns with well lighted torches, enclosing the carriage containing Mr. Dolliver, Judge Post, chairman of the state central committee, Elmer Stephenson, chairman of the county central committee, Mayor Graham, Col. E. R. Slzer and others. At this point the Ladies' McKinley clubs of the Third and Seventh wards surrounded the carriage and paid their compliments to Mr. Dolliver and his prominent escorts. The Railroad Men's Sound Money club, bearing aloft a most exquisite new silk banner, on which was inscribed the name of the club, headed by a platoon of police and the drum corps, marched south on Eleventh sti-eet and fell into position just behind the carriage. The Railroad Men's Sound Money club had received but a portion .of their beautiful uniforms, but with their lanterns presented a splendid appearance. The Republican Escort club and the Flambeau club were on their best behavior and presented an tirray that made the popocratic organizations look smaller than they have yet appeared. The parade was made up and headed by the McKinley drum corps of thirty pieces. The carriages containing the honored guest and Mayor Graham followed with the Republican Escort club, Railway Men's Sound Money club, Lincoln Zouaves, and the Lincoln Flambeau club in the order named. The line of march was west on P street to Ninth, where a spectacular bombardment on the Lincoln hotel and the Bryan headquarters was made, and the like of which was never before viewed in this city. The clubs marched and counter-marched from P to O street on Ninth and burned hundreds of Roman candles and pounds of red and blue lights, which set the heavens aglow and caused the few stragglers in "night-shirt uniforms"^ and red helmets who represent what is called the Bryan Home Guards, to seek seclusion away from the scene and kick themselves because, they had attempted to interrupt the parade by making an effort to form their bewildered company into line. It was purely a republican night, and the magnificent appearance of the different clubs was greeted with cheers that made the welkin ring as they marched in military order, handling their fireworks with the accomplishments displayed by drilled veterans. Congressman Dolliver will always have reason to remember his reception. Few men were ever accorded a grander or more brillianfone in any part of. the country, and as was frequently heard expressed on the street last night, he will leave Lincoln this morning satisfied that the great state of Nebraska will assist in reinstating to office the party that enabled it to become a member of the union that must and will be protected from dishonor, The scene on 0 street when the republican column appeared, was inspiring, and the greeting it received from the eager crowd was a treroend* ous ovation to the republican cause in Nebraska, Men, women, and children flanked the marching columns in their persistent effort to do them honor an4 satlsfly4helr own''}ntense political enthusiasm, It was a magnlflcent scene.' It was only a local republican meeting but it was an outpouring of the re< publican spirit in Lincoln, an4 shows her people will be little influenced by the presence or the residence of the popocratic presidential candidate. There was not standing room at the Lansing theater when 'Chairman Post Introduced Mr. Dolliver to the brilliant audience, and thousands of people were compelled to go away because /hey could not gain admittance to the building, WI l> TAYEOB'S BIG SCORE. the Team SUoot with Bancroft 00 Thursday mot-fling the wtob ejigot at p}a,y targetl between Mes^s, Sun,4r etVOW and Len&nder of Bancroft ag&JRSt £,, Tftylar of Algcma a»4 Martin..

In speaking of the dohtest the Bancroft Register says of Taylor's shooting: "Taylor has come to the front this year as a trap shooter, and if he can hold Up the gait he has been traveling since last June there is toot a shooter in the United States that can defeat him in a long match, or series, at inanimate targets. That may sound rather broad speaking of an unknown country shooter, but it is the truth." Taylor and Mortlnson have a match at Livermore tomorrow. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Burt has several typhoid fever cases. Bancroft has 277 children of school age. Mrs. Pearson died nt LuVerne last week from cancer of the stomach.

Some farmers in the northwest part of the county still refuse to pay for their county plat books. They met at Swea City Monday to organize , and resist suit.

Nevada Representative: Attorney F. M. Curtiss, according to THE UPPER DBS MOINES; has in hand one of the famous bogus land deals. That it will be handled to the advantage of the victimized farmer we have good reason to predict. Obituary. Ames Intelligencer: Mrs. Rachel Ayers, wife of Party L. Ayers, died at her home in Ames, Sunday morning, Sept, 13,1896, of typhoid fever after a comparatively brief illness. Such are the few words which speak so eloquently of human sorrow and human suffering; of a, happy home "dissolved, and children destined to be reared without knowing the tendernesses of a mother's love. Rachel E, Naylor was born In Adams county, Iowa, in 1873. She soon moved with her mother to Glen wood, Iowa, where on July 4, 1891, she was married to Perry L, Ayers. In 1893 she moved with her husband to Ames, which was her home up to the time of her death. Two children were born of this union, both surviving. Short services were held Monday morning at the late home, conducted by Rev, Douglass,, The body was then taken to Algona, the former home of Mr. Ayers, and where his parents now reside, for burial. Mrs. Ayers was a member of the Congregational church of Glen wood and was a sincere Christian, Of a quiet and retiring disposition, it was in the home life that were brought out noble qualities of a perfect woman' hood. She was one of matures artists too, ambitious for herself and for he.r husband. Besides her children, too young now to know of their Joss, she leaves behind, her loving husband, her parents and two sisters, who will ever revere her memory. Mrs. R, E, Whlpple of Glenwood, her mother, was present during her illness an4 went with the family to Algona, Mr. Ayers will remain in Algona until his health improves, and it is likely that the children will find a permanent home with bis parents. He expects to return to Ames as soon as possible &o4 gettle up fcis affairs. It (s not likely that be will resume business here, ' BUCKLKN'S ABNIOA S43&YJE!.
