Atlastl' Prof. Irving J. Mnnntt, of thin
city, exchancellor of tho Stato University,
has been appointed Consul at Athens, lie
was a candidate for minister to Greece,
but while the consular npiHlnttnent was a
surprise It will doubtless be ngreeoble. Pres
ident Harrison Is quoted ns saying Hint tho
endorsement of Mr. Mnnntt for the mission
wni very strong, and ho wns not surprised
that tlmt gentlcmnn's friends considered It ns
nil but irresistible; but the president dwelt
upon tho jKilltlcal pressure brought to benr
U(Kn lilm. He nppoluted Louden Sowdcn of
Pennsylvania to tho mission. This Is i cgord
ed among the politicians ns the first consular
appointment chargeable to Ncbraskn. Mr,
Egnn's appointment, It Is lelt, was n lecog-
nltlon of tho Irish republicans of tho whole
country and was not fnlrly chnrgenhlo to this
state. Ex-Chancellor Mnnntt may have had
detractors in his manngiment of the Uni
versity, but Nsbtaskans gcnsialry will bo
pleased at the recognition of Nebraska by the
president. Mr. Mnnatts learning and ablli
ty are un(iuestloned, nnd hu will represent
Undo Sam wltli credit.
Tho very latest in tho enst is said to be,
"Would you leave homo for that!" Tho cpU
demlc is working Its way westward, nnd
Lincolnttes will soon learn how easily It tuny
be applied to almost every conceivable
Tho columns of architectural dtslgus for
houses, published each week In the Couiiikii,
has proven to le one of tho best features un
dertoken by tho pnticr- The CouiiIKH tins
learned of several cases in which its designs
are to bo used In Lincoln, and there aro
others probably that have not coma to Its
knowledge. Only n few dnys ngo a contract
or received a carte blancne to build a cottage
after one of the CouiilEli plans, nnd ho has
taken the paper with the explanation that,
although' not much on socl 'ty, ho expects to
find many valuable suggestions in tho nrclil
tectural column. Many people of modest
means aro watching this feature with n great
deal of interest. It plans them a variety of
designs for homes of inodtratopiicesin a
manner that can bo readily understood.
The Rev. Mr. Savidge, who preached at
Cushman park Sunday, is quoted as saying:
"Hellglon U moiu than a inoru profession;
you can't make a minister out of a blatk coat
and a white choker. Tho besi kind of n man
is the ono with ouo bono in his back and tlmt
straight. You ain't make a man by taking
a bead and some toes and tying them to
gether with a strlug."
For the credit of the cloth mid thn truth
of anatomy it is hojad that the reverend gen
tleman has been incorrectly repotted. A
ruau with that kind of u back bono would be
fit only for u dime musee.
Mr. Savidge is the minister who cretacd n
mild sensation in Omaha ty talking oinmoii
sense lrom the pulpit. Hint ntmtdiobo a
noveliy for Omaha, and although the pustor
of a new Methodist church out on the edge of
town hu attracted considerable attention. He
was shrewd enough, too, to have the imperii
announce msseihious under btrlklng titles.
It seems that Mr Henry Cat-sidy, assistant
general ireignt agent or the ElUioiu did not
want the Noithwestern Omuha agency. The
lucky mau is Mr. It 11. Itltchle, who was
agent for tho Northwestern at Dss Moines.
He was agent at Clinton for years, and suc
ceeded to the Des Moines ofllce on Mr. Cas
sldy's promotion to his present place. Mr.
Ritchie is alto a young man who hus mado
bis way to tho front by merit.
One of the standing jokes of the lato legis
lature was tho farming of Senator Church
Howe. Ho joked about it himself, and tho
newspapers joked about it until the people
generally cot an impression that it was all
one hugo joke. Tho gentloman from Nema
ha it such u prominent and ever present flg
ure in political and railioad circles that it
was thought ho hud no time to lun a farm.
In his serious moments, however, lie asserted
that he was n bona flde hay seed, and he off
ered to convince the incredulous newspaper
men if they would visit him. While In tho
city last week he was reminded of his prom
ise, and ho told tho boys that ho would bo
ready for them on Sunday. It goes without
saying that tho visitors were handsomely en
tertained. Church Howo has tho art of
goodfellowship, or rather a genius which im
pels a spontaneous generosity and hospitality.
He is ono of tho tew men who net a world of
satisfaction by scattering favors upon others
as he goes along. Of course, Bye-tho-Byo is
aware that a great many jieople will main
tain that Church does nothing except for its
political effect. Admitting tho charge for
the moment, how much more admirable such
generous selfishness than tho selfish niggard
liness of the average politician, or even tho
average man I Dut u great many others who
have watched Church Howo closely will con
tend that the charge is altogether too
sweeping. Wlillo Mr. Howo is a politician
with all the arts of his class, they know of
scores of kindly acts of his, returns from
which are only remote possibilities.
But I am digressing. On their arrival th0
scribblers were refreshed at a spread of good
things, solid and iluid, and were then shown
over the farm. They found an immense
barn constructed on original plans, with all
sorts of conveniences. There are over 100
bloodtd horses on the farm, and tho sleekest
of them were led out before tho admiring
Visitors. The stud includes many beautiful
animals, several of them of great value. In
one of thecorrals wcro exhibited about eighty
head of cattle, not one weighing less than
1C00 pounds. There were swine galore. A
trip nbout tho farm show ed a variety of crops
in lino condition, among them '.'00 acres of
corn and 60 acres of wheat. Tho Senator's
home was an,' ordinary farm houso to which
another room has been added now and then.
It is furnished as luxuriously as a city house,
and the grounds in front of it aro kept up in
flue style. Tho farm has 800 acres. It has
been Church Howe's home for the lust
twenty years, and it represents In pnrt tho
results of a pretty active life. Hu Is assisted
in its mnnngemeut by his sou, Herlcrt Howe,
nnd thev hnvu quite n nuuilier of men under
them. They hnvu also 800 acres In Johnson
county, stocked with cattle. These fact
ought to Ix) coucluslvo evldcnco that Church
Howe i a farmer.
One of the merciful acts of the last legisla
ture was an law , authorizing tho governor
to pardon two convict each Fourth of July.
Tho law provides that the prisoners must hnvu
served ten years or moro, must hnvo n reeoiil
for good behuvior and mutt bo recommended
for pardon by tho chief Justice, tho attorney
general, tho secretary of state and tho war
den. In accordance with this net, Governor
Thayer on Thursday pardoned two Indians,
James Whitewater and Black Hawk, who
had served seventeen and nineteen years
Respectively. Both wcro serving Hfo senten
ces for minder. It is said that Whitewater
never broke ono of tho prison rules, whllo
Black Hawk's single offenso wns excusable.
Once, while marching, the man behind step
ped on Blnck Hnwk's soro heel. The Indian
jumped out of the ranks and struck tho w hlto
man. Black Hawk went to Omaha and will
probably go thence to tho Indian reservation
near Fender. Whitewater was met by his
two sons. He will probably join tho Otoes
In the Indian Territory.
The bonrd of pardons purosed recoin
mending Francis Frank for one of the govern
or's fa void, but tho old man didn't want to
be pardoned. Ho said nil of his old friends
In the outer world weio dead or scattered,
and he pref cried to stay in charge of tho hos
pital at the penitentiary.
Whitewater Is a half breed of tho Otoe
Indians mid spoko English fairly well even
before his Imprisonment begnn. On July 4,
1871, tho Otoes wcro returning through Fair
bury from their great buffalo hunt. Whlto
wnter got drunk while In town. On his way
to the reservation ho encountered two men
cutting grass nnd feeding their horses prepar
atory to going into camp for the night. Ho
shot ono of tho men whllo in the act of
gathering up an armful of grass. The other
man cut Whitewater on the arms and
hands with a scythe, but was disabled by a
bullet. A second shot killed him. When
found their bodies ncro not desjiolled, Indicat
ing that the crime had not been committed
for murder. Whitewater was suspected ntul
arrested, but escaped. The whites were in
dlgnunt. They accused tho Otoes of secret
ing him, and they, in fear, agreed todelivered
him up. They soon found him and took him
to Falrbury with a great display. Six war
riors i ode ahead. Then came a wagon with
the prisoner between two braves. On either
side of the wagon were two mounted Indians,
and many others followed as escort and spec
tators. On his trlul Whitewater saldthnt
n white man had killed his sister and he had
sworn to kill two white men for revenge. Ho
wns tried before Judge O. 1. Mason.
The king lives I For mluo eyes have seen
him. Long live the king I Ho ennio in omp,
and the glory of his paM.-liig filled tho hearts
of the eople with gladness. Great and good
is tho king! May he have life everlasting,
nnd may he never forget to light the streets
of Lincoln w ith his shining presence at least
once a year. And unto Bob Mcllejnolds shall
be prulse evellimie. For he went unto tho
laud of Quivern, which is in the kingdom of
Legend, and there he shewed unto the king
tho greatness of the city of Lincoln. And
Bob found favor in tho oyes of his ruler, and
tho king grunted his prayer and set the thuo
for his journeylto this fulr city. Praise, lw
the name of Mac.
Both arjicr'a Weekly and Frank Leslie's
had nu artist in Lincoln the Fourth. Hnr-
Iiers have offered to give n page of illustra
tions to the Tartarrax pageant and a two
column description on condition that the
board of trade take a half-iugo ad. at $350.
This Is an exceedingly liberal offer, and it Is
tho Couiukh's belief that that advertising
fund cannot bo used with better effect.
Orders for extra copies will not bo taken by
tho agent. They must go through tho local
newsdealers. Leslie's proposition is not as
liberal, and there is a disosItiou to make no
contract with that paper. It is to be hoped,
however, tlmt arrangements will lo inmlo to
have tho affair Illustrated in Leslie's also. No
hotter adverti'-emeut can bo hud for tho
money. These two paiws are of a high
giade, and to easterners anything illustrated
in them has an especial merit. To have both
periodicals bIiow tho glory of King Tin tnr
rnx's coming would Invest Lincoln with an
impoitanco throughout tho country that no
ordinary advertising could do.
Tho chief illustration in Harper' swill bo a
vlow of the procession from the north-west
corner of Twelfth and O streets. It will show
the "rifle tower" arch, .tho Burr block, Fuuke's
opera house and the Alexander block. Around
this view will bo shown tho other arches, anil
perhaps some of the characters in tho
pageant. Leslie's artists took about twenty
A girl claiming Lincoln as her home has
been distinguishing herself in California. Tho
Holllster Free Lance tells tho following story
about her: On Tuesday last n young man
and a boy were about the street peddling fans
prettily mado of wood. George Austin
watched them and told E. L. Dunham he
thought tho boy was a girl. On Wednesday
afternoon tho boy camo to Mr. Dunham's tal
lor shop to see about a coat. Dave offered to
measure him, but tho boy objected. Davo
insisted, and in measuring the Ixiy found
substantial indications that mado him believe
he was no boy, but a very well-built woman.
He told the marshal the result of his InvestN
gatlons, and tho marshal invited the boy to
his ofllce, and there, strange to say, ho was
convinced that the boy was a woman and de
serving of arrest for masquerading in boy's
clothes. She was taken to jail, where the
was visited by several kind-hearted ladles,
w ho volunteered to tit tier out in clothes suit
able for her sex. and to find her n heme.
She accepted both invitations, and will be
given n home in somo kind fatuity. When
her companion, who stated that he had been
tramping with her for a month, wns told that
she wns indeed n woinnn, his surprise appar
ently was houinlieiw; ho Indignantly denied
that she was n woman, but declared show as a

charge could be mado ngniust hlin he wns nl

Lincoln Is to be fnvored next Monday
evening by the Bostonlnns with "The Do

company aro Marie Stone, Tom Karl, 11. C.
Barnabee, Gtorgo Fiothlughum nnd W. 11.
Macdouald, whom old theater goers will re
call as the mnlustnjs of tho popular Boston
Ideal 0erit company. Dissatisfied with the
muiiugemaut of that troupe, Messrs, Karl,
Bai nubve and Macdonald organized the now
company, which embiuces tho best talent in
the old organization as well us new singers of
merit. Among the latter me Jessie iturtlett
Davis and her sister, Josephine Buitlett,
Louise lllanca, Catlottu Macdouald, Juli
ette Corden, Edwin Hoff and Edwin Cowels.
The Bostoiilans aie on their way east from a
successful tour of the Pacific const. On tho
succers cf this engagement in Lincoln will
deM!tid the company's return In the future

Bostoiilans play In Omaha tnch sensott to big
houses nnd It would be a treat to lovers of
good music in Lincoln to Induce them to visit
this city every year also. The IItoulunn
liuve made such a bright record us one of the
very best English oera companies in this
country tlmt it seems unnecessary to dwell at
length ufou their merits. The company Is
so large that it can give two entire casts for
any of the twelve ojieras In its reportory.
The singers are cast to suit the oiera ami
give the most efftctive results. If you hear
an opera with Karl instead of liaruulteo it is
because the former is better fitted for that
particular work, and vlcoveisa,

wets won In Italian oiiern at Milan, where lie
studied wtth bnnglovaunl, and where he
made his debut. His success was to great
tlu.t ho filled no less tlinn five consecutive en
gagements in the musical cubital of the
world. Carl Rosa went to Milan expressly to
secure Tom Karl for the United States tour
of Purepn. His enreer since then, excepting
a five mouths' season nt Milan, hns Wen con
fined to America. Here he has sungwlth
such distinguished prima denuus ns Tit lens,
Purepa, Nflssvii, Annie Louise Cury, Kellogg,
Muiie Iloze und Adelaide Phillips, besides
having been a jmrt of the glorious recoid of
the Bostoiilans from the first performance
they ever gave. Karl jsossesses the admir
able trait of self-control. He Is not self-indulgent,
and the admirable habits ho main

leading tenor roles, such ns Wilheliu Melster

question tho most pleasing and satisfactory
artist on the stage. He is also a strong solo

Is a fine contralto. She Is a Chicago woman
and probably the most noted of American
singers whose art was acqulrsd at home. She
has been a singer all her life, and was an at
traction for miles around her country home
on the prairies of Illinois. She sang success
fully in tho earlier Gilbert and Sullivan op
erns, but her career really began when she
made her debut in New York with Adellna
Patti in Italian opera at tho Academy, where
she made an instantaneous hit as Slebel in
"Faust." The circumstances under which
she sang apearing at a day's notice ami
without rehearsal being widely and favor
ably commtnted upon, she may be said to
have gained national fame In a night. The
greater jsysslbllltles for her were obviously in
English opera, and since then sho has sustain
ed the leading contralto roles In the Carleton
Opera Company, tho American Opera Com
pany am) the Bostoulans. Considered as un
approachable in comedy roles she has this
season astonished her friends by exceedingly
strong dramatio work in "Bohemian Girl"

she did in tho systematic way of mi English
