The niarshall very properly put a
stop to the excitement produced yester
day evening at the trait store of
Scluappagasse, by dispersing the crowd.
It is not only an inconvenience to ped
estrians who may wish to use the side
walks, to have them blocked up and
made impassable by a crowd indulging
in a sa'.utory crime, and a felony at that,
for such is the statute- of this state pi o
hibiting bettins.. but it i3 a moral wrong,
and all good ciiiens will delight to
uphold the city ellicc-rs in their efforts to
prevent anything like that proposed.
It is simply gambling, and that is on
ly calling it by its right name.

vs. llaldemau From the order disal
lowing these claims. Mr. Showalter ap
pealed on his own behalf a'ld on hehalf
of the others having fees in the same.

their former action and allowed these j
claims. The ctin of th- commissioners

A NeW Combination.
This morning near the Wheeler IJlock
there was an interesting exhibition. It
was a street show consisting of two da
goes, two bears and Judge Sullivan. As
usual there was a crowd of boys around
to see the hears, Dagoes and Judge Sul
livan wrestle, climb trees and telegraph
The price to see the big bear climb a
tree was fifty cents. One Dago passed
the hat around and soon big bruin was
doing fifty cents wortli of climbing.
Then the little bear became anxious to
climb to the top of a telegraph pole for
twenty live cents. But the crowil was
'"busted." It was just then that the Sul
livan part of the combination came to
the rescucymd the influence of the judge,
especially on behalf of thevisifingsons of
sunny Italy, was soon apparent, with his
ell known energy, skill and influence
he soon passed the hat and the twenty
rive cents to pay littla bruin for climbing
to the top of a telegraph pole,
was promptly in the i xcln quer of
the combination. Amid cheers little
bruin was taken to the pole, near Len
hoff Uros store, and having hetn told in
the Dago ilialect( understood only by th;
bears, the Dagos and the Judge) that it
was expected to climb to the top.
promptly elevated its frontage, threw its
caudal appendage- into a graceful curve
and vigorously started in the direction of
illimitable space. Up went little bruin
about ten feet and then stoyped. It
was a graceful stop, but discouraging
again to the boys. The twenty five cents
had been paid for a longer climb
but little Hiuin wouldn't go any
higher. Tightly hugging the pole
he looked down at the crowd, then at the
two sons of Italy anel then winked at
Judge Sullivan. It seemed to realize
that the cents was safe. But the boys
wanted it to climb higher. They yelled
and cheered, scolded and "cussed."
The Dagos pounded the pole and the
Judge anathematized in the l);igo Dia
lect which little bruin evidently under
stood, as it blinked both eyes and grace
fully curled its tail sis the words came
i hick and fast from the Judge. But
little bruin would climb no higher.
fhe money was safe in the treasury: little j
bruin was safe from immediate danger
and the boys ill voted it a 'Dago sidi."

anel the- t. I ious. it net fatal, wounding
of Assistant Engineer Jesse- Lee.
Engineer Crittenden and his men had
been especially friendly with the Indians,
and had always treated them kindly and
hail done them innumerable favors
Last Sunday morning i levin Cheyenne
Indians rode into the surveying camp,
and they were- given u kindly welcome-
It was soon discovered that the Indians,
were intoxicated and disposed to be ugly
They demanded liquor of the surveyors
which was refused. The Indians then
began drinkiug.from flasks which they
had brought with them, at the same time
invitniLr the men to ioin them in their
orgie. The men again refused, and the
Indians finally bugt.n to niifke threats,
and were ordered from the camp. A
quarrel ensued. The Indians suddenly
attacked the surveying party with their
knives and guns. The attack was so uu
expected that the men were in no way
prepar-d for resistance, and when the
Indians departed all five of the men
weie left upon the field for dead. As
sistant Engineer Lee was not killed,
however, and recovered sufficiently to
drag himself to the nearest ranch.
The Indians rilleel the camp and rode
away into the mountains. A pursuing
party wus at once organized, and alter a
hard chase the Indians were captured
and are now under guard. It is thought
that a lynching bee will dispose of them
shortly, if this has not been done already.
Two of the ranchmen who are known to
have furnished the Inelians with whisky
have also been arrestee!.
No Such Word as "Fail."
Cardinal liicheiieu said "In the lexi
con of youth the.-! is no such word as
fail,' but he lived in an age when en
terprises of the greatest moment are
dwarfed iuto oblivious insignificance
compared with the achievements of the
nineteenth century. Had the wise old
cardinal lived in these days, he undoubt
edly would have qualified his language
and put it in this way-: ''In the lexicon
of youth there is no such word as fail
except in tiie show business." Out of
over two liuuelred shows that have ap
peared on the stage of life, since Sells
Bros. b. came identified as showmen,
there is but one other firm in existence
now, the others having all failed. Not
withstanding the discouraging statistics
which are calculated to frighten people
from embarking in so hazird.-us a busi
ness, Sells Bros, are not deterred from
undertaking the most stupendous enter
prises known. Tfiis shmv last season ex
ceeded in size and daily expenses any
other circus organization by 'ong odds,
yet they piloted it successfully across the
continent. This year they have under
taken what would seem to other man
agers certain bankruptcy the addition
of another show, nearly as large as their
own, the S. II. B irrett's world's fair and
both big shows will travel in union, ex
hibiting as one. Both these shows were
perfectly equipped and organized to
travel separately, as they have done for
many past seasons, but when Sells Bros,
learned that the Barrett show contem
plated making a tour of the Pacific coast
this season, negotiations were opened
which resulted in the consolidation of
both shows in one, and the tour will be
made in union. While this will increase
the daily expense nearly double, the
price of admis.-ion will not be increased.
The two .shows combined will exhibit at
Plattsmouth on Tuesday, June "24.
