Mr. Olney, living east of the city, had
a gold watch stolen from his residence
last Wednesday evening; during the
absence of the family a walking delegate
from somewhere entered the house. He
was tracked to Schuyler, and it was
found that there he had taken the train
for Omaha. It was thought best not to
try to follow him, identification being
difficult, and the valne of the property
taken not justifying the outlay.
Jack Egan, a tree agent, assaulted
George McKelvey Sunday morning near
the First National bank. We are told
that, without warning, he struck Mc

against him of sometime standing.
Egan was put under arrest, and on Mon
day before Judge Hensley, pleading
guilty was fined 530 and costs, S8.S5.

Before Judge Hudson Monday
morning James Harrigan was arraigned
charged with stealing two suits of
clothes from Friedhofs store on Satur
day. In default of bail for $500 he was
sent to jail. Harrigan and another man,
doubtless a confederate, were in the
salesrooms upstairs in the Friedhof es
tablishment, looking at clothing, the
other one staying ostensibly to look for
a suit, while Harrigan remarked that he
was out of tobacco and would go down
to get some. He slipped two suits of

Thursday afternoon what is known
to newspaper people as one of their most
trying experiences caine to the Wochen-
blatt. A four page form was on the
press at the Telegram office, and before
it was locked up, Jack Kincaid started
the press, and after running three papers
the whole form slipped off and every line
was pied, no two letters hanging togeth
er. Requisition was made upon Lincoln
for two German printers, and the work
of straightening out begun. The worst
thing about the accident was that the
English type-setters of the city could
not help in the distribution.

Rev. Marvon Farah, a Roman Cath
olic priest from Jerusalem, and Rev.Sar,
his deacon, have been in the city for
about a week. They travel the country,
looking after the interests of the Arabian--born
people in Canada, the United States
and Mexico. Rev. Farah is about sixty
years old and wears a long beard, which
gives him a venerable appearance. Rev.
Sar acts as his interpreter, and together
they have some novel experiences in
their work traveling on foot two hnn
dred miles once in New Mexico. When
we expressed to Rev. Sar our belief that
very early in 1900 we should see a grand
gathering from the civilized world at
Jerusalem, and railroad travel pretty
general in the Holy Land, he said that
there were now there forty miles of rail
road, constructed at a cost of $4,000,000,
because of the lengthy tunnels, but the
work goes forward, and there is good
reason to believe that it will be but a
few years until the country is well sup
plied. He was very greatly astonished
when he came here three and a half years
ago, at the sights he saw such wonder
ful cities, with their industries, their
public improvements, etc. The reverend
gentlemen held services at St. Bonaven
ture church Sunday morning, a large
congregation being in attendance.
The entertainment Wednesday even
ing, given under the management of the
Ladies Relief committee, the proceeds
for the benefit of the poor, was.a decided
success. Considering that the concert
was gotten up within one week, and had
scarcely any advertising, the house was
very well filled, the net proceeds being
about 360. The program was as follows:
Song, Maennerchor; piano solo, Miss
Elsie Morse; song, Mrs. Evans; violin
solo, Mr. G. A. Schroeder; baritone solo,
Mr. Gus. Falbaum; song, Maennerchor;
piano solo, Miss Florence Gleason; song,
Mrs. Chambers; trio, Mrs. Evans, Mrs.
Chambers and Mr. Schroeder; recitation,
Miss Ida Martin. After the above pro
gram was rendered with a hearty appre
ciation of each number, several being
enchored, the audience were treated to
several selections by a darkey quartette,
who are in the city giving concerts. The
audience was well pleased and felt paid
for their money. It is a good thing to
take an interest in these home entertain
ments. We are hardly aware and do not
appreciate the number of talented people
we can boast in our city, and do not have
enough home entertainments to "bring
out" many of our gifted people. The
play tomorrow evening, "Hal Hazard"
will be something that will just suit the
audience, and will show what talent we
have in our midst in the dramatic line.

tax; he had issued execution on some;
on others the time hacTbcen extended as
parties expressed a desire to pay. The
report was placed on file.

The correspondence between the water
commissioner and Master Mechanic
Manning and other officials of the Union
Pacific company was read to the council.
Since the water meter, which measures
the amount of water used by the com
pany, got out of order, the amount can
onlv be approximated by estimate. Tho-f
railroad authorities objected to an .efi
mate based on the three monthsT Sep
tember, October and November, as too
high, being three of the heaviest months
of the year. After considering the mat
ter fully the council decided to strike an
average of the six months preceding De
cember and January 318."9 each.
Councilman Welch inquired what
shape the meter is in, when we are going
to get it, and how long it will last after
we do get it. Commissioner Schroeder
laughingly said that was too many
questions for him to Jinswer all at once,
when Welch suggested that he could
take them up one at a time; explaining
the situation of affairs, the worst feature
was the presentation of a bill by the
Meter company for $57, for fixing the
meter. Mr. Schroeder explainJvhy
this was an unjust bill, and sbmild not
be paid. s- -
L. Schwarz, representing thjire com
panies, presented a list of supplies great
ly needed by them, viz: seven hydrant

terns, shut-off nozzles, &c. The request
was referred to the committee on fire.
The communication of Greisen and
others in regard to the tax on auction
eers was read and duly considered, all
the members of the council participating
in the discussion. The proposition, in
brief, was to the effect that the gentle
men signing the communication (nearly
all the active business of the citv), would
undertake to test tho questions at issue,
without expense to the city, suit having
to be brought in the name of the city.
The proposition was acceded to by the
council, all voting in tho affirmative.
Councilman Welch asking that he be
placed on the record as favoring the
proposition, the city being guaranteed
against all responsibility in the matter.
A resolution was adopted instructing
the city attorney to bring suit against
E. J. Harmon to enforce payment of his
occupation tax in full, as levied by the
ordinance, as retail dealer, viz: $20. Tho
resolution was offered by the committee
on police, Councilmen Spoerry, Gray and
