A Lively Run.
From Taturdny Daily
At tin early hour tiiia mrniug as ex
preRsiimn I. Dunn wr.is loading some
boxes into hU wa." at tiie front of
the Stadclmm buiUing ou Muiu street,
his team becainu frightened at tlm clat
ter and uoise of ibe boxes, ud took
tbeir flight t 11 lively pced down the
street without any driver. Fortun u-lv
there were nut many vthuli jet u i.--Btreet,
and m d.i.1...l4o' lesult.d muil
tbey lad ruu over a block, when they
came in contact with A. Clark's lony,
which was hitched to a cart and was tied
in front of th j etose. The ftony was
completely stripped of his harness, and
the c irt was pretty badly demolished,
and one of the broken shafts was driven
into the breast of one of the runawuy
horses inflicting an ugly wound. No
further damages were d'.ne except the
pony's harness was somewhat broken up.

J. B. Holmes, living west of Rock
Bluffs, and Sani'l Barker, of Eight Mile
Grove neighborhood, put up at the
Perkins House last night. On rising this
morning they were astonished to find
that Mr. Barker's vest, which contained
his watch, had been removed from under
his pillow, but the wacch was not dis
Further investigations disclosed the
fact that the burglar, or burglars, had got
in their work by taking Mr. Holmes' vest
from under his pillow, or rather where
the pillow had been, as Mr. Holmes bad
during the night removed the pillow
from over the vest. Mr. Holmes' veht
contained a gold watch and chain valued
at $80, and bills amounting to from $52
to $55, Mr. Holmes not remembering the
exact amount In addition to these los cs
Mr. Holmes lost about S4 in chango which
the burglars took from his pants pocket,
and Mr. -Barker some 83 or $4 taken
from his pants pocket.
Nothing in the way of a clue to the
burglars has yet developed. Mr. Harti
gan was a guest of the hotel end left
his order to be called at 3 o'clock a. m.
for No. 1, which is due at 3:20. Accor
dingly he was called, and at that hour
the hall light was on. In about fifteen
minutes he returned, finding the train
did not make o,uaha where he wished
to go, and observed the light in the hall
had been turned out during his absence.
This is a circumstance, merely pointing
to the time of the burglary, but which
of course may prove of no value in tra
cing the burglars.

Was It a Fake?
This morning when No. 5 arrived
about an hour late a little sensation
occured. which it is rumored will later
on prove to be one of those things our
neighbor seems to be such a victim to, a
"fake." As soon as the train slowed up
the deputy conservator of the peace,close
ly followed by the lusty editor, might
have been seen prancing at a lively speed
toward the rear end of the train to make
an important capture and report. They
wire told i li it there was something in
the closet, and that an entrance could
not be effected thereto as the door was
Finally, means were devised for ex
ploring the place by putting a courageuos
porterln at the window, when lo, and

Washington, Aug. 9. The president
sent a message to congress in which he
states that ne has received a communi
cation from Governor Steele of Okla
homa territory, stating that it has been
shown to him that in township 16,
range 1, in the county where Guthrie is
situated, twenty-eight families are in
actual need of the necessaries of life,
and that the township is not an excep
tion in this state of affairs. Governor
Steele further stated that the legislature
will be unable to comply with the de
mands of the needy and he asks the
president to call the attention of con
gress to the condition of his people.
The president states that he is led to
believed from other sources that the
governor is altogether right, and that
unless relief is afforded widespread suf
fering will result. The people, he says,
have expended all their money in trav
eling and the crop prospects are poor.
"I am advised," he says, "that there is
an unexpended balance of about $45,000
nf th fund annronriated for the relief

Washington, Ang. 9. The senate
adopted the conference report on the

in the afternoon the tariff bill was taken
np but no progress was made with the

Mr. Hoar from the library committee,

Ulvsses S. Grant to be erected in the
Capitol, provided that the design of the
6tatue and pedestal shall receive tne
approval of the joint committee on the
library, and it was passed. The senate
then at 6 p. m. adjourned.
The house finished consideration of
the general deficiency bill and passed
it, in the afternoon. The remainder of
the afternoon was spent discussing a
resolution from the committee on rules
to bring the senate amendments to the
Indian appropriation bill before the
house for immediate consideration.
Oft for Boston.
Washington, Aug. 9. President
Harrison, accompanied by Secretaries
Noble and Rusk and Private Secretary
Halford, leave Washington this morn
ing for Boston to attend the G. A. R.
encampment there next week. The
president and party will be met on his
arrival at Jersey City in the afternoon
by the navy yard tug Catalpa, which
will transfer him to the Baltimore. He
will be received on board the Baltimore
by Admiral Gherardi and Capt. Schley
with presidential honors, hia flag will be
hoisted and soon after the Baltimore
will start for Boston by way of the
Sound. During Sunday the Baltimore
will remain at anchor. The journey
will be resumed in time to allow the
Baltimore to reach Boston on the after
noon of Monday. The various ships
which have been ordered to Boston, in
cluding the Kearsage, Atlanta, York
town, Dolphin, Petrel and Vesuvius,
will not accompany the Baltimore, but
have been ordered to Boston, to reach
there not later than Monday.
Who Will Succeed Clarkson?
Washington, Aug. 3. The question
of a successor to Assistant Postmaster
General Clarkson is discussed with in
terest now that it is known with certainty
that Mr. Clarkson is soon to retire. The
ever blooming Chauncey I. Filley of St.
Louis would be willing to forego his
criticism of the administration and
accept the responsibilitiesiand the emol
uments of the office, and Congressman
Niegrindhaus is pushing him for the
place. Mr. Filley, however, is in dis
favor, and his appointment is unlikely.
Henry C. Payne of Wisconsin is also
mentioned. Mr. Payne was a candi
date for postmaster general, but gave
up his claims to cabinet honor3 in favor
of Jerry Rusk. He is making a good
deal of money in private business now,
and will hardly care to re-enter public
life in a minor capacity. The desire
seems to be to find a western man to
succeed Mr. Clarkson.
