Annie Wilson, about three
week ago, lost a S00 diamond

had stolen from her dressing table.
Yesterday a man named Callahan
came into Shaw's Jewelry store, to
have a ring weighed: Mr. Shaw,
who had been informed of the loss
of the ring, at once saw that he had
the lost article, and telling a gentle
man present to go for Marshal Snow
den, he detained Callahan, until the
Marshal came and arrested him.
Callahan explained his possession
of the ring by stating that he had
found it while cleaning up Annie
Wilson's back yard, and upon Miss
Wilson corroborating thisjact, he
Frank Ramge, the merchant
tailor, yesterday afternoon, sent his
nephew to collect a bill of long
standing from a young man named
Bodley, employed as a book-keeper
by a Farnham street house. Bod
Jey refused to pay the bill then, and
sent back an Insulting message to
Ramge, who went over to see him
abaut it, and thereby got himself
into a little unpleasantness. Bodley
repeated his message, and some
words ensued between the two, when
Bodley struck Ramge once or twice.
The timid tailor, instead of striking
back at the head of his assailant,
struck at his pocket book, by having
him arrested and brought before the
police court, where he was fined $5
and costs. The morning papers took
great care to suppress his name, but
his unwarrantable conduct does not
deserve any such leniency. Any
body that will strike Frank Ramge,
we've got our opinion of.

A Hoisy Bow in a Disreputable
A very loud disturbance occurred
at the house of Hattic Harper,
southeast corner of Twelfth street
and Capitol avenue Mondayevening
about seven o'clock. An inmate of
the establishment, named "Nigger
Em," although, she is white, was
"chuck full of benzine," and on her
muscle. She wanted to whip her
boss, Hat. Harper, and almost en
tirely stripped for the mill. About
a hundred citizens were attracted
to the place by the loud mouthed
demonstrations. Policeman Byrne,
who had been summoned, arrested
and dressed up the woman, with the
assistance of others, and putting her
In an express wagon, conveyed her
to jail. Yesterday she was fined
$7.50 at the Police Court, and-&at,
Harper, the keeper of the den, was
assessed $10 and costs.
A House of Prostitution Baided
by the Police.
The low house of ill-fame kepW
by Mrs. Creston, on Eleventh street,
was raided Monday night by police
men Thorn and Benedict andOfficcr
Simpson, who captured the mistress
and female inmates, and lodged
them in jail.
They were brought into Police
Court yesterday, and were cer
tainly as hard a looking lot of out
casts as ever drew the breath of life.
Big Em Creston, the boss, was fined
$15.00; Ella Jones, Hattie Turner
and Dora Mansfield were fined $7.00
each. Most of them were sen t back
to jail, as they did not have the cash
to settle up with.
They are a bad lot, and the
Marshal deserves credit lor ordering
the menagerie to be stirred up.
Charged with Bobbery.
A girl named Annie Morrlscy was
arrested by the police Monday night
at the house of Amanda Kelly on
Tenth street, on the charge of hav
ing robbed a verdant Duchman of
$10. It seems that the Dutchman
went into Jack Shepard's saloon on
Eleventh street, and treated, receiv
ing back his change from "honest"
Dutch Minnie. He then paid a
visit to Annie Morrisey in an ad-
joing room, and she kicked him out,
after he had been there but a few
moments. "When he came out he
found, as he claims, that he had
been robbed of the ten dollars.
Miss Morrisey was yesterdaj
brought before Judge Peabody, and
bound over in the sum of 100 to ap
pear this afternoon for examination.

Transfer of Business from the
old wooden buildings to
tfco new Brick
The Hew Order of Things began
The removal of the Union Pacific
ticket offices, telegraph offices, bag
gage rooms,lunch and diningrooms,
etc., from the old wooden buildings
to the new brick depot, was begun
Monday evening and completed
yestesday morning. The baggage
rooms occupy the west end of the
building, then come the gentle
men's sitting room, the Union Pa
cific ticket office, in semi-circular
form on the north side, and the
Pullman ticket office, in the same
shape, on the south; next is the la
dies' sitting room, and lastly the
The first transfer was made at
the new depot this morning, the
transfer train running to the south
side, while the train for the west
stood on the north side. The car
riages, omnibuses, and express
wagons occupied a position at the
west end of the platform, facing
Tenth street As the train from
the other side of the river was a
very large one, the scene around the
depot was a right lively one, yet
everything went on with the ut
most regularity, just as if the rail
road employes had been located in
the new quarters for a year.
The new order of things
is a most decided improve
ment over the old, and will be ap
preciated by the railroad men in
particular, and the public in gen
eral. But the greatest improvement,
and the one that deserves an exten
ded notice, is Markle's dining hall,
occupying about'one fourth of the
building, at the East end. The
twelve tables are full' supplied with
silver ware'of the latest designs. A
three hundred dollar mirror
stands at the east end, and
reflects the beauty of the room. A
handsome sideboard stands at each
side of the hall, while the high walls
are tastefully hung "with chromos,
oil paintings, and bird cages
containing sweet songsters, and are
decorated with a buffalo's head,
elkhorns, stufrbd prairie chickens,
partridges, etc. The extensive lunch
counter is abundantly supplied with
everything that can be called for.
The arrangement of the shelving
within the counter is very attracti veT
An eagle with outspread wings sur
mounts a mirror, and on each side
is a railway scene, the shelves on
either side being filled with canned
fruit, pickles, preserves, etc.
Mr. Markle has also added an ex
pensive soda fountain to his estab
lishment. It has been placed inside
of the lunch counter.
Mr. T. L. Hawkins, one of the
bc3t natured men in the world, has
charge of the lunch counter.
The kitchen, in the rear of the
lunch counter, is a model of neat
ness and compactness. The range
and boiler, costing $1,500, were
built by Walker, of Boston, and
were ordered and purchased by Mr.
Markle himself. A reservoir occu
pies a'place in one corner, in which
100 gallons of water can be made to
boil in four minutes. There are
three "jack-kettles," in which all
the cooking is done by steam, and
in which water can be made to boil
in one minute. Other necessary
apparatus has been supplied, and
the kitchen Is perfect In all its
appointments. It is under the charge
of John Miller, a cook of thirty
years' experience, and who came
here from the Occidental Hotel,
This department of the depot is
one of which the company may well
be proud, and we agree with one of
the officials of the road who this
morning, after looking the room
over, remarked that "Jake Markle
knows how to run a hotel."
The old buildings, with the excep
tion of the eastern baggage room,
which has been torn down, will be
used for the emigrants.

O'Keefe opened his tailoring estab-

windows up and it soon became evi
dent to him that the place had been
burglarized. The thief had first tried
to cut out a pane of glass in the
east rear window, but changed his
operations to the west rear
window, out of which he
broke a pane by means of an in
strumeut of some kind
reached in his hand, unfastened the
catch, shoved up the window, and
made preparations for a big haul.
He did up in a bundle about three
hundred dollars' worth of clothing
that had been made to order, and
threw it out of the open window,
where it was found yesterday morn
ing. The thief having evidently been
disturbed and frightened inr-hls

very great value, Mr. Whitney's
best coat, and a small amount of
money. The rascal was a sly one,
and got off with his plunder with

Governor Furnas has issued a
proclamation offering a reward of
$200 for the apprehension of Charles
W. "Wells, who killed David O.
Schurrter, in Stanton county in this

case are that "Wells, without any
authority, attempted to seize Mune
goods belonging to Schurrter, for
another party. Schurrter drove
him away. "Wells procured a gun,
and returning, shot and killed
Schurrter. Ho was taken to Fre

being taken to trial escaped. A clue
has been obtained to his where

will be tajcen into custody again.
