Who'll guard It unstained, or lu death coldly

Tlio Omalm Her of Wednesday, gives tlio
following interesting lilt of railroad gossip:
"Thero It ft Kiinio of chess going on between n

Hurllugton & Qiiiney nro piny lug ono Mile, tho

mid not ii disinterested one either hut tho sort
of n HnecMtor who is willing to hold tho stakes
wagered on tho gamo for u small fraction
thereof, nay 50 er cent.
The lite of u fow days since contained tho
announcement that tho Chicago, llurliiigtou
& yulncy had decided to nso tho Union Puci
llc for it transcontinental business from
Choycnno westward. An yet It in understood
that this applies only to freight ImslnetiH hut
thoso who uro in n jiosltion to know contend
that putsongor travel Im to follow in n very
shot t spaco of time. Of course this leave tho
Denver !& Hio Urimdo without an eastern
connection mid tho only income tho road can
derive is from its local business. It is indeed
n inovo calculated to "check" no it wore. In
return for this sending of freight and iMUwen
gent over tho Union l'nclllo westwurd tho lat
ter road Is, so it 1h understood, to send ltn
freight and passenger trulllc eastward from

has u lino to Denver via St. Joseph, Mo. To
make tho matter more binding tho hittor

in a southwesterly direction through to Fnlr
bury, connecting with tho Chicago, Kansas

will give tho Hio uiundo equally as good

COMMENTS AND OPINIONS IN TYPE.
What lie Sees, UriiiK, 'llilnk mid
Little did our friends of Omaha, or tho state
know what n genius nnd lirlllaut writer they
had until tho nt,Mrii entitled, "Mr. Samson of
Omalm," wns announced oven now fow more
than thoHostudyiug lu tlio Mil Ions parts in (ho
0era know what n lirlllaut author nnd play
wright they have In the s"rson of Mr. Fred
Nye. Tho lihmtto Is by our Journalistic fi loud
Nye, of tho Omalm ll'iiWtf nnd tho viKiilscom
by Mrs. Young of tho snine cltv. "Mr, Hum.
son of Oinnlui" will ho staged nttho lloyd's
three nights next vvcok, commencing Thurs-
day orenlug, tho east comprising sonui of the
leading musical Mrsoniigcs of the inotrojMjlls.
While lu Omaha, one eeniug this week lu
conversation w ith ii lady friend who assumes
one of tho leading characters in tho ciut of
"Mr. Hnmsou of Omaha" 1 was told thai tho
piodlictlou would bo one or the Wt of tho
season, not withstanding it is by a homo auth
or mid local talent, "Why, do you know I"
Mild tho vocalist, "Tlio music Is HTiictly
charming; the airs arc, many of them catchy,
nnd tho Bcoro throughout Is jMirfectly faseln
ntlng, tho lines of the owirn nm as nicely ar
ninged, tho wonting as pretty us any ohhh I
luivo over heard, and tho situations urn often
lulto novel. I'll miss my guess awfully if tho
oern. Is'nt u great big success, for It has every
ipiullflciition for drawing well." Tho lady is
one of Omaha's most prominent vocalists nnd
with such recommend and from such n source
wo may exHct much nnd the Observer know
ing tho genlnl Fred Nye, does not linvo nny
doubt but that tho production will bo all that
has been predicted for It,
Hpenklng of "Mr. Hnmson of Oinuhn" there
lias leau sDine talk of bringing the company to
LIiiodIii to present tho oern here, nnd I tnist
proHr nrrongoinont will Imi mode for tho
event; I nm snrn iiVrowdisl houso would greet
tho company, notonlybocnusoof thoexcelenlt
proiluctinn but for tho fact that lu tho cast aro
so many very lino singers, and among them
tho licst vocalists nnd lenders of Omaha socie
ty. Wo trust ".Mr. Kainson of Oiimhn," will
glvo Llncolnltesnn opportunity to show them
their appreciation of home talent of the met
ropolis. I wltncsvsl nu interesting sceno tho otner
day in n lestaiirnnt, nnd tho fact Hint wrong
was punished, (pilto pleased me. 1'ioin whnt
I could observe it wcmisl that u lady had been
dining nt tho lcstaurant.and herhuslmud wns
to call for her later, about tho time she would
lsvready to leave the place 'I ho waiter, (a
innle) net knowing that the Indy was married,
or that her husband, who had Just stopis'il in,
was near at hand, iniido some insolent and
disreputable remnrk about her to u young
man nearby Htnudlug wheio ho could hear
tlio talk, tho husband promptly pio"ccdcd to
to chastise tho puppy, nnd would have thrash
),(, i,, 0t a liystnndnr reminded him of
his jiositlon nnd that cool Judgement usetl In tho
,tter would bo lietter than n public scene.
However the wnlter who had no tlmo to talk,
ft without waste of tlmo or words. This sort
f thing Is Winning entirely too topulnr for
K()0(i result and vigorous steps should Im
taken to stop it, Now-n-das n lady, no mnt-
! tor how reserved iniiDnenrnncoshoinav Imi. or
how little attention sho pnj-s torsous on tho

lums dressed In gentlemens attire, who en
deavor to pick up ncipialntnuce, or as they
call it, "mako u mash," and nothing ever
pleases tho Oliserver inoro than when ho oli
servosonoof these fellows getting Ills just
deerts;l low over men, (for they nro not gentle
men) if you must (Hi t or will Insist on making
acquaintance, theronro enough females roam
ing the street that will talk to you, anil will
not feel insulted, without ynuriiimlllatfng tho
truo lady. If you are dopinved and without
honor or common sense, go to that class that
llnds similar favor, but to tho unproteeUsl,
tho innocent nnd the rcM'Ctcd lady you should
not, will not, and if the law does Its duty, can
not continue this base and insulting conduct.
