Officers located a rendezvous for
small boys in the outskirts of South
Omaha. A number of boys, from 10
to 14 years of age. had excavated on
the level ground to a depth of seven
feet and had a very cozy cave about
eight feet snuare nearly completed.
They had secured a stove and had the
piace fixed up in dime novel shape.
When the officers swooped down upon
the piace they found four small boys
at work decorating and fixing up the
interior. They were badly frightened
and promised to abandon the "cave"
if allowed to go their way in peace.

Now that the election has finally
passed, says a Lincoln correspondent,
the state-olliciais will turn their atten

interest. There promises to be but
few changes in the capitol during the
next two years. Secretary Allen wiil
doubtless retain tho same force of
clerks, and this wiil give Nelson Mc
Dowell, the bookkeeper, another term
of office. Mr. McDowell has held this
position for tho past eleven years.

Grand Forks. N. D., Nov. 19.
Some two weeks ago W. L. Comers,
who for some time has been purchas
ing grain in East Grand Forks and
selling on commission, disappeared
suddenly, forsaking his wife and chil
dren and taking with him. it is al
leged, proceeds of sales of several
thousand bushels of grain belonging
to farmers for whom he had been act
ing. Nothing wa3 learned of his
whereabouts until yesterday, when a
young man giving the name of Charles
Williams arrived with a letter from
Comers to a young girl who has lived
with the family of Comers for some
time as nurse girl. The missive com
prised fourteen pages of manuscript
and urged the girl to come to him.
Tho letter was dated San Bernardino.
Cal., and Williams brought it with
him. Comers' wife obtained the letter
in some way and put it in the hands of
the police. A telegram was received
last night stating that he had been ap
prehended and the money he had taken
with him. Comers was living under
an assumed name. He is highly con
nected here and ha3 occupied various
Dositious of trust.

Washington. Nov. 17. There are
four rich plums which the democratic
senators must dispose of in caucus:
the secretaryship of the senate, now
held be General Anson G. McCook of
New Y'ork, with a salary of $5,000 per
annum: the sergency-at-arms, now oc
cupied by Judge E. K. Valentine of
Nebraska, which also pays $5,000 a
yerv; chief clerk, now occupies by
Charles W. Johnson of Minnesota,
which carries a salary of $2. 500 a year,
and the postmastership, paying $3,000
a year, now held by Stanley Plummer
There is no doubt that Charles B.
Readc of Maine, the present assistant
aergeant-at-arms. will be retained as
his predecessor. James Christy, a
southern democrat, was retained by
the republican senate untii his death.
It is not expected that there wiii he a
clean sweep of ail the republican em
ployes of the senate. Tnere have been
for years numerous democrats on the
senate rolls and it is expected that the
incoming democratic senate will show
the same courtesy to th republican
eorleagues lhat was extended to them
when they were the minority.

It Is Denied that Cleveland Gave
Tammany Any I'leilse.
New Yoiur, Nov. 19. The Brook
lyn Eagle, in an editorial, strongly
denies the published statement regard
ing that dinner at the Victoria hotel,
at which Mr. Cleveland met the Tam
many leaders and is said to have made
promises and stipulations to them in
return for their support at his elec
tion. The truth as to what tho prac
titioners on Mr. Cleveland's courage
at tho freedom learned, is this: "They
learned that Mr. Cleveland would
make no provisos or anything of tho
sort to any of them, or to or for any
others through them. That he had
not sought the nomination which, on
the contrary, had sought him, that he
considered the state a matter of much
more importance to them than to him;
that he repelled tho idea that his de
mocracy was questionable by them or
doubtable by any one; that they knew
he was aware who had been his friends
before the nomination, and he would
know who had and who had not been
his friends after tho election; that he
would have no friends to reward on
account of friendship, and no former
opponents to punish on account of
former opposition; that he would go
to election or to defeat equally free
and absolutely uncommitted; but
that if the democratic people and
ticket were defeated in this state by
the democratic machine another
democratic organization was ready
to lake its place at once, and that in
such case tho youngest man present
wouldn't "live years enough to see that
machine sufficiently strong to win or
betray a causo thereafter, or one of
their number ever sitting in a state or
national convention again. Last night
at a dinner given by the Manhattan
sinjrle tax club. Mr. Thomas G. Shear
man of Brooklyn said at the now his
torical dinner there were present
Messrs. Cleveland, Whitney, Dickin
son, Sheehan. Edward Murphy, jr.,
and Richard Crokcr.
Mr. Cleveland has not toid me
anything about the pledges he made,"
said Mr. Shearman, "but there hap
pens to be a telephone in the room
where that dinner was held which has
conveyed to me what happened."
Mr. Shearman then pictured Lieu
tenant Governor bheehan as standing
up and addressing Mr. Cleveland on
the subject of pledges. Mr. Cleveland
replied to Mr. Sheehan: '-Mr. Shee
han, I have iisteued with the utmost
attention to what you havo said. I
have followed you very carefully, and
I think I understand you perfectly,
and what I have to say in repiy, Mr.
Si eehan. is, that I'll bo d d if I
wiil pledge myself to any man on any
subject whatever, and I'll be doubiy
d d before I give you those particu
lar pledges for which you have asked
at this particular time."

today until the conference is over.
This unexpected step is attributed" to
a design of the committee to assist the
British delegates to tbe conference,
leading a discussion for the position on
the currency in India. When this
commission resumes its sitting, evi
dence will bo privately taken from
currency experts, including single
standard men favoring a gold coinage
Concerning the instructions of the
American delegates, the representa
tive of the Associated press, gleaning
from various weil informed sources,
learns that no hard and fast proposals
wili be presented by them. A general
statement advocating an international
agreement wiil bo made beforo the
conference, and this wiil lead to de
bale. The delegates anticipate that
the result will be a report, signed by
tho members, adhering to their prop
osition for an international agreement.
Doubtless dissenting reports wiil also
be. made. No reliable statement can
yet be made as to wh'ether the Ameri
can views wiil have a majority or mi
nority, but even if the monometaiists
prove numerically the strongest, it is
to be hoped that the deliberations will
assist in the intimate adhesion of the
government to an international con
vention to regulate currency values.
A Nervy Deputy MirriuT Captures and
Jails a Desperate llobbcr.
Sr. Joseph, Mo., Nov. 19. This
afternoon Maurice Crowiey, a desper
ate character who hails from Win
throp. boarded a Missouri Pacific train
at that place and robbed a Chicago
traveling man of a gold watch. $20,
and a number of valuable papers, after
which he jumped from the swiftiy
moving train and escaped. He was
captured a short time later by Deputy
Sheriff Brennan, who started with him
for the jail in this city.
While riding in a streetcar Crowley
suddenly sprang up and escaped. The
deputy started after him with drawn
pistol, and falling on the slippery
pavement the revolver went off and
shot his left hand away. He. however,
continued the pursuit and shot Crow-

A "."Memorable itaiiquc:.
New Yokk. Nov. 17. President-
' elect .Cleveland was one of the hon
jored guests at the twelfth annual din
ner of the chamber of commerce, held
at Delmonico's. There were many
other honored guests present, but none
' around whom so many interests were
1 centered unless, indeed, it were the
Hon. Chauncey M. Depew, who sat at
the table of honor next to Whiteiaw
Reid. Defeat seemed to sit lightly on
the shoulders of Mr.- Reid, and Mr.
j Depew. when he shook hands with Mr.
Cleveland before grace, allowed no
thought of tho epitaphs he said in
Buffalo he would inscribe over the
political grave of the president-elect.
The annual feast of the chamber of
commerce is always a memorable one
and the gathering on this occasion was
no exception to the rule. It was 9:30
when President Orr called for order,
and amid tho clouds of fragrant Ha
vana? be made a graceful speech.
Mr. Orr concluded by giving the
first toast, which was responded to by
Attorney General Miller of Indiana.
Mr. Miller responded to tne toast.
"The President of the United States."
for which Secretary Elkin was se
lected. President-elect Cleveland, on being
Mr. President and Gentlomen: 1
am exceedingly gratified by the kind
ness and warmth of your greeting. It
does not surprise me. however, for I
havo seen and felt on moro than one
occasion the cordial hospitality and
heartiness of those who assemble at
the annual dinners of our chamber of
nnmmereo. Wo have noticed that
many men. when they seek to appear
especially wise and impressive, speak
of 'our business interests' as some
thing wise and mysterious: and quite
often when a proposition is under dis
cussion its merits are no longer appar
ent to those whose hair is on end at
the solemn suggestion that -our busi
ness interests' are lying in wait with
numerous vials of wrath in complete
readiness for thoso who arrive at an
unaccepted conclusion. I am for
tunate in being able to state that my
relation with the chamber of com
merce of the state of New Yorir,
though mereiy of a complimentary
kind, arising from honorary member
ship, has so familiarized me with busi
ness interests that I no longer regard
these words as meaning anything
bloodthirsty, nor have I constantly
before my mind those chilaren in tho
biblical story who were torn in pieces
by bears for discussing too much at
random tho baldness of an ancient
It is entiroly natural that my fa
miliarity with business interests aris
ing from mv relation to which I have.
referred, should be of a pler.sant sort
and free from fear and trepidation.
Tho only meetings I have ever at
tended of the chamber of commerce
have been precisely such as this, when
the very best things to eat and drink
havo been exhaustively discussed. I
am bound to say that on lhe occasions
the dreadful beings representing bus
iness interests "nave been very human
indeed. I know you will not do mo
tne very great injustice of supposing
that I in the least underrate tho im
portance of commercial and financial
interests here represented. On the con
trary, no ono appreciates moro fuily
than 1 that, while a proper adjustment
of all interests should be maintained,
you represent thoe which aro utterly
indispensable to our national growth
and prosperity. I do not believe that
anj other interests should bo obliged
to feed from the crumbs which fall
from tbe table of these, nor do I be
lieve that the tnbie should be rob
bed of the good things which
are honestly and fairly there,
merely because some otner tables aro
not well provided. It comes well
provided. It comes to this where all
are interested as Americans in com
mon Durpose. Our purpose is. or
ought to be. in our several spheres.
to add to the general fund of national
prosperity. From this fund we are all
entitled to draw, perhaps not equally,
but justly, each receiving a fair por
tion of individual prosperity. Let us
avoid tramping on each other in our
anxiety to be first in tho distribution
of shares, and let us not attempt to
appropriate the shares of others. As
I close I cannot refrain from express
ing my thanks for tho courtesies ex
tended to me by the organization at
whose hosui.ble board I have sat this
evening. IYjbeg to assure you that
though I may not soon meet you again
on an occasion like this, I shall re
member, with peculiar pleasure, the
friends made among your membership
and shall never allow myself to oo
heedless of tho affairs you so worthily
hold in your keeping."
Two Ztlorc ltu!ler Killed.
Buffalo, Wyo., Nov. 18. Word
has been brought to Buffalo of tho as
sassination of two moro outlaws. The
dead cattle thieves are the notorious
Mike Brown and George Hanks, fugi
tives from Montana. Both were found
shot in the back near Hot Springs,
Fremont county. Four outlaws havo
been kitted in that vicinity in the same
way within two weeks. Brown was
one of the most notorious cattle thieves
President Harrison is already en
gaged in the preparation of his annual
message to congress.
At tho meeting of the cabinet the
question of filling a number of vacan
cies in important offices was discussed.
It is likely that a number of them will
be left unfilled until March 4.
