A BAD LOT.
A Whole Gang of Burglars now
SheriffBurley returned Wednesday
night at 10 o'clock from Sioux City,
having in charge Dan Donovan and
Anderson, the two young men who
were held to await the arrival of an
officer from Omaha. They are
wanted here to answer to the charge
of burglarizing several places re
cently, in company with one Lynch,
also in jail.
Mr. Burley ironed them from
Sioux City to Missouri Valley Junc
tion, and having to wait there four
hours, he took the irons off, and
placed them in the lock up. Ten
minutes afterwards, they set a straw
tick on fire, and then cried for help,
hoping to make their escape during
the excitement They were foiled
in their attempt, as the fire was first
put out, before they were taken out
of their suffocating quarters.
Upon being put in jail here,
they recognized their pal, Lynch,
who squealed on them, and one of
them exclaimed, "there's the d d
son of a gun!" They deny any
knowledge of the burglary of
O'Keefe's tailor shop. Their hear
ing will probably take place to
morrow. Donovan is one of the fel
lows arrested here last fall, for tap
ping a Farnham street till, and who
with his pals, escaped out of the
front door of the jail hall way.
SheriffBurley has done a good job
In securing "this gang of operators,
who will for some time to come, re
main within the prison walls.
An Impertinent Thief.
A man that will steal will lie, and
Judge Lake even goes farther by
declaring that a thief will never
hesitate about perjury to explain
away his theft. So much as to the
reliability of the statement of the
discharged apprentice Ellsworth
MilJer, who publishes a mess of
malicious falsehoods touching his
connection and discharge from this
office. The facts of the case are
briefly as follows: This young
scamp was employed at the Herald
office until the printers' strike at six
dollars per week. He folned
tho strikers, but when starvation
stared him in tho face he
applied at the Bee office for em
ployment He was employed in
the news room at $0.00 per week
during the first week, and at the
end of that period, his pay was ad
"vanced to $8.00, and a few weeks
later to $S.60. His thievish predi
lictlons boon manifested thomselves
by disclosing to tho Union certain
items gathered by our local editor,
and causing their publication in
that sheet prior to tb4r appearance
in the Bee. He al:o made it a
practice to ransack the editorial
room in the absence of the editor,
for tho purpose of pilfering ex
changes for the Union.
This he virtually confessed when
accused last Saturday by acknowl
edging that he furnished papers
from time to time to "Kelley," one
of the thirteen honest (?) and op
prcsed Union publishers. One sin
gle incident will Illustrate Miller's
character. About leu days ago a
full-grown bird strayed Into the Bee
counting-room and was captured by
the book-keeper. Mr. Rosewater
placed the bird into a little covered
basket with a view of presenting it
to his children. He locked
his room, and returning in'
about an hour found the bird dead.
Subsequently he learned that
Ellsworth Miller had forcibly en
tered the room and tossed the bird
about in the basket till he was dead.
Miller's story about his pay is as
false as is the declaration that the
Union exchange lists exceed that of
the Be.e, else "why would Kelley
wt those papers? His pay lias
alwavs bt-n prompt, and Mr.
Stearns, who dischar Wm; slm
ply desired this impertinent yo-
to stand back a few minutes until
he paid off the other employes -of
the news room. We should not
have given this matter so much
space had not the virtuous and
honest publi diers of the Union seen
fit to make i.n injured hero out of
a rascally and heartless scallawag.
Dorchester, Neb. May 23.
DorcSjester, Saline county, a little
prairie town of about 100 popula
tion, is tunded on the north by
literally level prairie, on the south
by literally level prairie, on the east
by literally level prairie, and on the
west by literally level prairie. As
is a graii of wheat unto an eleva
tor, so is Dorchester unto the broad
prairie. One may sit on a chimney
pot and ec the horizon precisely as
it appears from tho mast-head of a
ship at sea.
The genuine, unalloyed prairie
scenery is free from irregular, un
sightly hills, monotonous forest
belts, muddy streams and buffalo
wallow.s, which are noticeable In
some i;rtions of Northwestern Ne
braska. Then, owing to the absence
of hill , one can the better appre
ciate the exhilatinir zephvrs that
nearly at all times are blowing with
greater or less force, causing the
vast area of grain to gracefully
wave, and refreshing the weary
granger as he toils, etc.
These level lands, however, are
in an emminent , decree .desirable
for agricultural and stock purposes.
Some of the steam flour men should
come out here and go to work.

ARE THE PEOPLE OF OMAHA
Van Cott Emphatically
Says They are-
The Small Amounts of the Con
tributions are not Satisfac
tory to Her.
A religious Bee reporter Wandered
into the Van Cott tent last night,
for the purpose of listening to the
eloquent revivalist, and of picking
up some notes of interest. The
tent was pretty well crowded, while
a large number of men were seated
or standing on the outskirts, or
leaning upon the fence. People of
all classes were here gathered, and
certainly the spiritual seed fell into
many varieties of soil.
During the course of her ramb
ling exhortations Mrs. Van Cott
took occasion to pitch into "pro
fessd Christians," who attend wor
ship at some house of God to-night,
and to-morrow night they are at
some ball, theatre, or other place of
Mrs. Van Cott thinks the people
of Omaha are stingy. She stated
that on Monday night the collection
amounted to only $2, and on Wed
nesday, to but $7.00 or $8.00. In
the matter of contributions, "deal
with us," she said, "just as you
would like to be dealt bj'. Give us
a respectablo collection. It ought
to be $30 or $40 every night." She
related how, in a little town of Vir
ginia, of only 130 inhabitants, the
collection amounted to $30, $40, or
$50 in gold or silver every night,
which led the reporter to mentally
remark, that the Virginians must
have discovered some mines, and
become well heeled. She wanted
the people of Omaha to follow suit
"Brother," exclaimed she, "take
the collection, and don't be in such
a jumping hurry. Don't pass them
by with a sleepy eye."
The brother's activity didn't suit
Mrs. Van Cott, which caused her to
remark, "ypu act just as f you
didn't expect tho people to give any
thing." While the collection was being
taken, a hymn was sung, probably
not quite loud enough, for Mrs. Van
Cott at its conclusion, said, "they
told us last nigh; that they heard us
sing three miles away, now let them
hear us seventeen miles away. Hal
lelujah!" Another hjmn was sung, while
the contribution b:x was passed
around the second time.
"I pray pod for yqu tq bo liberal.
You aro too stingy. That js the
reason you do" not get converted,"
said Mrs. Van Cott, incidentally.
"I do despise meanness. I am glad
I am nof- niean. You will never be
converted tity yqu are more liberal.
I pray God to give you a more jib
eral spirit. Who will say amen to
"Amen !" exclaimed a score or
more of voices.
After the majority of tjie crowd
had dispersed, wc understand that
Mrs. Van Cott attacked "the various
ministers for not taking a greater
interest in tho revival, which was
not as great a success as she had ex
pected. She threatened, if it did
not prove more successful, to depart
from Omaha at once, and leave it
to be damned.

A Furious Jehu Failing to Shoot
His Wife, Searly Hills Her
by Clubbing Her With
His Gun, and Found
ing Her With His
Wednesday afternoon Edward
Flaherty, a hackman, living at the
foot of Douglas street, had a diffi
culty with his wife and came very
nearly murdering her. He drove
up to his house with his hack, and
soon after alighting he had some
loud words with her, quarreling
in that household being a common
occurrence. Mrs. Flaherty went
into the house, and upon her com
ing out again, lie told her to "git,"
or he would make her. Putting his
horses into the stable, he procured a
club, and threatened to knock her
brains out. A man, who happened
to be near by, yelled to him to hold
on, and he did so, but only long
enough to obtain a double-barreled
shot gun from the house. Raising
it to his shoulder, he cocked the
weapon, aimed at his wife, and
pulled the trigger, but fortunately it
failed to explode the cap. Fol
lowing up his wife, he com
pelled her to retreat behind the
house, on which he kept the gun
pointed for some considerable time.
He finally set it in the house. His
wife, who had watched him through
the cracks, crawled in at a window
at her first opportunity, got the gun
and run, with her husband in hot
pursuit She was forced to throw
the weapon away, and when it
struck the ground it went off, for
tunately not hitting any body.
Flaherty caught his wife, threw
her down, and then went to pick up
the gun. She, in self-defense,grabbed
up a stono with which to keep lm
from putting a new cap on the un
fired barrel, and with that end in
view she flung it at him, without
effect, and then took to her heels.
Again did the furious husband cor
ral his spouse near th.e gate, and
raising tho gun high in the air, he
struck a blow, which caused her to
measure her length on the ground.
Three well-directed blows from
his fist followed immediately.
Mr. Stephens, from Fletcher
fc Hubbard's stable, seeing the
woman tall, thought she
had been killed, and with Mr.
Douglas, from Clark's stable, ran
over to the place where she had fal
len, and picked her up. She seemed
to have no life in her,.
Said one of the men to Flaherty,
"I guess you've done it now," He
replied that he did not care; that
he would have done it ten years
ago, had it not been for the boys.
Mrs. Flaherty's head was bleed
ing from the wound caused by the
blow from 'tho gun, and both her
elbows woro skinned. She soon re
vived and walked unaided into
the house, much to the surprise of
the men who came to her assist
The above are the facts in the
case as related to a Bee reporter,
by an eye witness, and which will
probably be substantiated under
oath, at the examination, which
will take place before Judge Pea

STRAWBERRIES and CREAM
A Prominent San Francisco
Liquor Merchant on His Way
to Hew York Becomes.
Wednesday morning a telegram
was received by Deputy Sheriff
Hanlon to come to Elkhorn, on the
Union Pacific railroad, and take
charge of a crazy traveler.
The man's name is William Beal,
a prominent liquor merchant of San
Francisco, on his wajT to New York
on business. He left home perfect
ly sound in mind, but upon nearing
the Eastern end of the Union
Pacific railroad, he showed signs of
approaching insanity, and upon
reaching Elkhorn station he became
entirely insane. He threw his
money, $150, out of the car window,
jumped from the platform, and
cut up many curious antics.
Sheriff Hanlon, who had
put in an appearance in answer to
the conductor's telegram, took
charge of him, brought him to
Omaha, and lodged him in jail.
The unfortunate individual is a fine
appearing gentleman. Judging
from his ravings he has become in
sane from brooding over the subject
of the liquor traffic, and the evihHl
entails upon mankind. He is con
stantly praying to God to forgive
him for his crimes, and for having
caused so much intoxication. The
sad information of his case has been
sent to his friends in California.
While freight train No. 10, on the
Kansas City, St. Joe and Council
Bluffs railway, was running south
on Tuesday night last, the fireman
of engine 20, became last off the
train between Forbes and Ottawa,
in some mysterious manner. When
Jt was learned that ho was missing,
the train was backed up, and a
thorough search made for him. He
could not be found, and he is yet
missing. His wnereabouts and fate
are a matter of singular mystery.
"Sandy" will Probably Escape
The notorious "Sandy," alias
George Melville, formerly of Oma

on the charge of murder, will pro

Fagg, of Kit Carson, last January,
was taken to Los Animas last Sat
urday to have his trial, which takes
place tjjjs month. E.very witness
is out of the county, wU oannot be

U ABOUT THE WATKR WORKS
The central city of the West
Quito nroud of late has crown.
4td feels it can no longer wait
A goot sized pona to own.
The greatest cities of the world
Who wish to cat s swell,
At once erect a reservoir
Upon their highest hllL
We read in the days of Noah
That water wo.-ks were tried;
The trouble was they had no tewexf ,
An J so the peopln died.
Let us then rememlier
If water works we try.
To pot in sewers good and strong,
And mate our street quite dry
And when the thing is done
We'll celebrate at once,
Then everybody in the town
Will bay their hats of Bunce.
For all new styles that t ow are out,
Some fifty kinds or more.
You'll find them cheap at Bonce's
Famous New York store.
