Another Jail Delivery.
This Soming about "5 o'clock
Jailor Birchtield came down to the
Court House to attend to his "jail
birds," when he was met on the
walk at the northwest gate by Geo.
Elder, alias Frank Humphrey, who
informed him that two of them, the
prisoners, had "flown. Birchtield
wanted to know why and how he,
Elder, was out there, when Elder
told mm no was ieu um u
other prisoners, but not being
able or wishing to escape, he had
concluded to board during the sum
mer in jail, at theexpense of the
county. Birchfield was too aston
ished to say much, but hastened
into tho court house to find that in
deed what ho bad been told was
only too true, and two prisoners
named Greary and Sullivan had
made good their escape, and "gone
where the woodbine twincth."
We learn from Sheritf Farbar the
particulars of their escape, which
are that about 8 o'clock, as he is in
formed bv the prisoners who re
mained, Jolm Sullivan, who is in
for stealing hides, commenced pry
ing on the lock, a light brass one,
witli a Btick, and after working until
1 o'clock he succeeded in bursting
it and as he did so ho remarked
to a fellow prisoner, "I have been
working three hours to break that
and now I have done It, I will put
it in my iwckct and keep it," which
he accordingly did. Sullivan then
took tho same stick of cordwood
and broke the look tp Qreary's cell.
Greary at first refund to go but
finally consented, but said he would
be back at the September term of
court but he did not want to stay in
there until then.
Thev were both in on a charge of
petty larceny and it is a good thing,
pecuniarily, lor the county, but it is
rather too common, letting prison
ers escape whenever they attempt
to. Someone should be responsi
ble. If the jail is not suitable to
contain and retain prisoners, then
let the Commissioners attend to it
and see that it is. If a jailor is
hired for the purpose or Keeping
them let him be responsible. It is
getting to be an old story when
every prisoner iu a jail can be set
free at the pleasure of one convict.

Tho petitioners complained of there
being too many Hacks on tne streets,
hanging around the hotels, etc., to
the damage of liverymen. It was

right to make a living.
A resolution that the Mayor
should purchase ice for the city offi
ces, was carried by a majority, but
coolly vetoed by the President, who
has this right iu cases of resolution

A resolution was passed author
izing the City Attorney to furnish
iKmds in the replevin case for the
possession of a fire department
horse. The horse had strayed into
the country and had been found in
the possession of a farmer, who was
plowing with him, and who refused
to give him up. The farmer's con
duct was an astoni&her to Stephen
son, who had never heard of such a
thing before a farmer picking up
and u'.ing a horse belonging to the

A resolution that a committee
be appointed to examine Edward
Johnston's books since he became
Treasurer of the city of Omaha,
was adopted. The chair appointed
Mr. Stephenson as chairman of that
committee, tho Mayor and the
Clerk, it being the duty of the latter
two to audit the boooks.
Councilman Stephenson handed
in a map from the Union Pacific
Company for the grade of Tenth
street, so that bridges could be built
over the tracks. The matter was
referred to the committee on streets
and grades and City Engineer.
The Mayor's nomination of
John Christopherson as Captain of
Police, came up for confirma
tion. Councilman Lucas explained
why he should vote against it. He
did not consider Christopherson a
comietent as Captain Ryan, who
uad been tried and found faithful
and efficient. He saw no necessity,
for a ehanjre. The vote resulted as "

was absent, tho appointment was
laid over till next Tuesday.
The other police appointments

Correspondence of Omaka Bee
Lincoln, Neb., May 19, '73.
Editor Omaha Bee:
Lincoln, during the last few days
in particular, has been what is
known in western parlance as a
lively town. Those dear ladies, dy
ing for love of their poor brothers,
sous, husbands, and for the love of
their aisters' brothers, sons and hus
bands, have contributed much to
wards making it so. The City Coun
cil put a stop to praying and singing
on the sidewalk, the saloon keepers
refused longer to admit them, but a
manner washeld in "Bro. Alex's"
church, and it was there decided
11. 4- l.rt llM-rrh- muat fa nil "
They have adopted a different
mode of warfare, which is much
more expensive to saloonists and
tax-payers. It is this: During the
later days of tliecrusade, they acted
oa snips, so had numerous cases of
the violation ot law, as they thought,
and accordingly several prominent
saloon keepers werelbrought before
the courts, upon various charges.
To-day the last case was tried, tne
charge being that of allowing mi
nors to play billiards. The jury re
turned a verdict of not guilty m
this, asthey did in all others, the
..JAaa nnt hfivlnir evidence to
substantiate their assertions. Thus
far, you will see, the attempt in a
diiTerentdirection has resulted in
heaping upzosts for the city to pay
They also have another plan. It
is to go in twos and threes, calling
upon sucn aa uru au"Jtv-.7
crusading and "plead" with them.
A committee of-two called upon the
editor of the BladeAhe other day,
thinking that he certainly ought to
be ripe for the harvest. Thev could
talk like lightning, and getting him
cornered, poured upon .him a gall
ing cross-fire. It didn't last but
ten minutes, and though he stood
up to it like a little major, after the
conflict was over he bore a close re
semblance to that man whose pho
tograph most everybody" carries
nowadays the man whowas
"talked to death." J
Then there is a great fight be
tween the editors of the Blade and
Arivrwntr. in recard to the hitter's
nose. The Blade insists that it is a.
bad looking nose for a temperance
editor, while the Advocate man
says that "the Major and our nose
is on a level." This the Major de
nies. He says the elder's nose is
not on a level with him. Well, we
.nsk. where is it then ?
fi,o Piontlon for Marshal, of
which wo spoke In our last, came
Asa last grand effort the tem
perance people held a mass meet
ing last evening in the Academy
of Music. Elder Davis first spoke,
but said nothing more than to ex
press his belief that God was with
the ladies in their great struggle,
and that if He was for them Mho
could be against them ? Then that
staunch old reformer, (?) Gov.
Butler, with his rosy checks and
gentle mien stepped upon the plat
form. He commenced, of course,
by telling that calf story. Every
one who has ever heard him speak,
ntior. wW. or a dozen times, have
heard that story an equal number of
times. "They pqueu uis eura uu iu
get it to suck, and its tail to get it
away." , ,t
" We took a walk then around the
square, but as the windows of the
hall were up, and we were not over
four blocks "away, ho was distinctly
heard. He can talk longer and say
I- s than any speaker we ever heard;
He tells a story, then tries to start a
laugh. His arguments, if such it
can be called, was, that judges
ought to decide in accordance with
public opinion, and that public
opinion was in favor of the crusade.
That, he said, was what Taney,
Andrew Jackson's tool, did; that
was what Chase did, and that was
what our judges ought to do. The
only way, in his opinion, to convert
saloon keepers, was for God himself,
to reach down with His all
powerful arm, take them by
the nap of the neck and
shake them over the abyss of
boll until they realized their con
dition. If the Governor keeps on,
you see, he will make a good
preacher. Suoh was tho heaviest
speech, and with it they adjourned
to wait for the morrow. It came,
and at an early hour, the ladies,
with fans and parasols, tooK tneir
positions. They held their ground
all day, but at night, they lacked
125 votes of carrying the election.
The "whisky" man was elected by
125 majority. We do not believe it
was a square whisky and. anti
whisky fight It was crusade and
and anii-crusade, and many tem
perance men voted the anti ticket.
The square is illuminated to-night
