Forman Scott of Section Gang
Settles Row Without Blood
Yesterday Foreman Scott, who
had been In command of the extra
gang which livened up affairs a
week or so ago by going on strike,
received a new consignment of
Italians and prepared to take up the
track work where his old gang so
unceremoniously left off. This new
gang proceeded to fjrnish some en
tertainment for the populace and
some excitement for the sheriff's of
fice lust evening when two of them
engaged in war red, Internecine
war. These two Italians, who shall
for the purpose of this article be
named Pietro and Lughl, had had
trouble previous to coming to this
municipality. Their real names are
not printed out of consideration for
the typesetting machine, it being too
valuable a piece of machinery to risk
their names on. Pietro, who Is the
vllllan of the tale, came here with
the reputation of being a trouble
maker, and as really a sort of pocket
edition of the Mafia. His country
men, It Is said, tried to get him
prized off the gang before they land
ed here, but without success, and
they then and there determined to
serve him up as the poet has put It,
a la gizzard, If he started anything.
And sure enough, he started some
thing. He engaged Lulgl in conver
sation at the cars last evening and
pleasantly referred to the latter's
personal habits, and his ancestry In
a manner anything but an fait, so to
Fpenk. Further on he proposed to
start a slaughter house right there,
using Lulgl as the carcass. Lulgl
expostulated and Pietro produced a
large knife, and slashed at Lughl
cutting a nice, long rip In his roat.
Foremnn Scott, who was present,
then Interfered In time to save
Pletro's life, as Lulgl was real vexed
at him and was on the verge of let
ting his warm blood trickle down
over the bright, pretty rails of the
Burlington. As soon as Mr. Scttt
interfered Pietro abandoned the
fight and fled northwards along the
tracks toward Omaha, pursued by
small boys and men. Sheriff Qulnton
and Deputy Manspeaker were no
tified and Joined In the merry chase,
but the villain gave the sheriff and
his valiant deputy what is derisive
ly termed the merry ha, ha, and
acted like a regular scamp, refusing
to come back when told to and tak
ing to the woods. Since then he has
never been seen and for ought the
sheriff and his trusty deputy knows,
he Is now basking in the shade of
his own grape vine In sunny Italy,
Others think he may have gone to
Join the Weeping Water murderers
or the Manley bank robbers. Maybe
so; maybe not so. Anyway, he Is
gone. Pietro was not injured except
in his feelings.
Foreman Scott states that the
man was watched, as he had a bad
reputation and the gang had tried to
get him left behind, but the Inter
preter thought he would give him a
trial. The Beveral different sections
of Italy produce men of different
temperaments, according to experts
on the subject, those from from the
north of Italy making good, honest
and energetl: workmen, sober, tem
perate and althful, while from the
southern end of the country comes
the fightln?, unstable element who
cannot be depended upon. The gang

That is the Number David S. Taylor
Passed Last Monday
Lust Monday night the home of
David S. Taylor, In South Purk, was
the scene of a pleasant gathering,
some fifty of the aged gentleman's
friends gathering to observe his sev-
enty-frst birthday In a flt.lng man
ner. The party was of the nature of
a surprise nnd It completely tilled
the bill. The aged gentleman was
more than pleased at the manner In
which his many friends showed their
appreciation of his being with them
for so many years, and was much af
fected by the presents which were
showered upon lit m. A resident of
this city and vicinity for a number
of years past, he Is one of the most
populur of men among those who
know him, nnd they could not do
t-nough to show their appreciation
of his excellent qualities.
The evening was spent most pleas
antly, the older folks Indulging In
social conversation while tho young
lokls made the airy inert y upon the
lawn, Indulging In various games
and pastimes. Later Ice cream nnd
a pleasant and dainty luncheon was
served, which all partook of with
the utmost enjoyment.
One very pleasant feature of the
evening was an address by Kev.
Luther Moore, who presented the
honored guest with the presents
which his good neighbors and
friends had brought In. He felici
tated him upon tho punning of the
many milestones of a long life and
trusted that tho three score and ten
which hud been passed be far sur
passed and a long life would be his
lot. Rev. Moore'i address was
pleasant one and handsomely suited
to the occasion.
Tho guest of honor was born sov
enty-one years ago at a point twelv
tulles northwest of Vlncennes, Ind
Dear the Illinois state line, where h
lived until his parents died at th
age of 15 years. Ho then removed
to Marlon, lit., where for thlrty-flv
years lie was nn honored nnd Tv-

a queer coincidence upon that of

The Telephone Goes On.
A wire stringing gang Is sow at
work on the Burlington's main line
west of Sutton, working toward
Hastings, preparing for the installa
tion of the telephone between Lin
coln and Kearney for train dispatch
ing purposes. When this wire Is
placed and one or two little branch
lines connected up, the use of the
telegraph In the dispatcher's office
of the Lincoln division will be dis
continued. Less than two years ago articles
were published In the papers from
telegraphers pointing out the impos
sibility of the use of the telephone
for train dispatching purposes, and
calling attention to alleged dangers
resulting irom its use. Now every
big system In the country Is using
the telephone to some extent for
train dispatching and to consider
able extent for the transmission of
railroad messages. Tress messages
are now being received over railroad
wires in Nebraska, where telegraph
operators are not In service.
The Burlington is now using on
itc lines west of the river telephones
on all the lines of Its Omaha di
vision, excepting the Sioux City
line, on Its main line northwest from
Lincoln to Ravenna, and on many
other divisions on the system.
An expert telephone operator in
the employ of the Burlington Is re
ported to have recently taken on a
typewriter eighteen railroad mes
sages, of average length, in less than
that number of minutes. State

Asks For Administrator.
In county court this morning a
petition was filed by Mrs. Mary
Egenberger, asking for the appoint
ment of an administrator of the es
tate of the late J. V. Egenberger,
her deceased husband. J. II. E
(Eddie) Egenberger Is named as ad
ministrator. The value of the per
sonal property Is fixed at $2,000 and
the realty at $7,000. The hearing
Is set for August 24. Matthew Ger-
lng Is counsel for the petitioner.
With the Sick.
The latest reports from Mr. and
Mrs. G. W. Osborne are more assur
ing. This morning Mr. Osborne was
able to set up for the first time,
staying up some twenty-five min
uses. His condition Is reported as
much more favorable than it has
been, and there is every reason to
believe that he will make a speedy
recovery. Mrs. Osborne is also re
ported as progressing nicely, and it
is believed her recovery will also be
very rapid and complete. This is
good news for the many friends cf
this estimable couple, and all trust
that they will soon be able to be out
and about once more.
Reports from Mrs. Lydia Newiand
are also rather more encouraging,
and hopes are entertained that she
may eventually completely recover.
Her children take a more hopeful
view of her condition, and trust that
the rally which she has made will be
Frank Svoboda did not rest so
well last night and this morning, a
physician being summoned at 5
o'clock, on account of a dangerous
sinking spell which he had. Owing
to his weakened condition these
spells are very dangerous and each
renders the chances for recovery
more remote. His many friends
would be pleased to note a complete
let-up in them so that strength
might be gained.
The reports from Omaha, where
Mrs. Alice Towle Is at the hospital,
were very gloomy this morning. Her
condition was so bad that her par
ents and other relatives were no
tified to come to the hospital at once,
as the end might come at any time.
It is to be hoped, that their mourful
forecasts are erroneous and that
they will find her condition much
better than hoped for on their ar
Mrs. Lillian K. Hasse Is reported
as getting along as well as condi
tions will permit at the hospital in
Omaha, although her Illness is of a
very serious nature and there Is not
much room to hope for any very
favorable trun at present. She has
been 111 for so long that her condl
ton Is quite weak, and this militates
against her chances. It may be,
however, that change for the bet
ter will come nt any time and that
her recovery will soon take place.
Her friends certainly hope for this
happy state of affairs.
Returns to Her Duties.
We omitted, unintentionally, how
ever, yesterday to mention the return
of Miss Mary Foster, county superln
tendent of schools, who, in company
with her parents, has been on a vis
iting nnd recreation trip in the east.
We are pleased to stnte that her trip
was a most enjoyable one, nnd that
her much-needed rest from her con
tlnuous and arduous duties hns
brought the desired results. Miss
Foster Is looking remarkably well,
