A Very Queer Proceeding.
One night last week, between
twelve and one o'clock, three po
licemen appeared at the door of the
room of two frail females, Emma
Doyle and Jesse Allen, over a Farn
ham street establishment, and ob
taining admittance, informed them
that they would be obliged to pay a
fine. The next night, at about the
same hour, two of the same three
policemen knocked at the door.
The girls wanted to know who was
there. "Officers," was the reply,
and they added with an oath, it
is said, that they would break
in the door if they were not
admitted. They were let in, and
they informed the girls that they
would have to pay a fine or go to
jail. The females finally induced
their gentlemen visitors to put up
the money for them. One was
taxed $7.85 as an inmate, and the
other $9.00 and some cents, as being
the mistress. The officers then left
Next morning Marshal Snowden re
turned some of the money, about
$2.00 overcharges, and in answer to
questions by the girls, stated that
the proceeding was somewhat ir
regular; that it would not occur
again, and that they ought to have
been given a chance, as they had
just come to town.
The proceedings on the part of
the officers, no matter how good
their intentions may have been,
were unquestionably without any
authority. "Whoever heard of any
body being fined, without being ar
rested and taken before a. court of
justice? The amounts levied upon
tijem were large enough to cover
the costs, if any had been made,
but none were made, as no papers
had been served or any expense in
curred. The system of collecting
fines from the tlemi mondc seems to
be considerably mixed and decided
ly irregular, as well as the whole
mode of conducting the police busi
ness. It seems strange that the Mar
shal should allow a constable to col
lect fines, when he has a sufficient
police force about him, and who are
paid by the city a regular salary to

that if a policeman served the
papers or did the business, as he
ought to d , there would not be
those little extra fees, which the
constable pwkets. The ordinances
provide that the Marshal shall
make complaint against all pros
titutes on the 1st of every month,
and cauc thir arrest, and if we are
not mistaken, the charter expressly
states that for this duty no extra fees
shall le charged by the Marshal.

In a few days the Iowa roadn,
composing the "pool," will resume
the freight business on the old basis,
and what little through freight that
has hitherto gone round by way of
Kearney, will hereafter be shipped
b1 way of Omaha. The Kearney
route, hawever, will be left open,
and the Union Pacific will there
fore assume a neutral position be
tween it and the pool. The Kear
ney outlet has not effected Omaha
in the least, as only three men
were required to do the Kearney bus
iness, about which so much was
said. This change back to the old
basis, does not affect the "pool" in
their relation to Omaha, whom they
can treat as they always have done
if they feel so inclined, but the prob
ability is that hereafter they will
deal with this city more honorably,
and not discriminate against it.
They have been taught a lesson,
and they will profit by It.

THE MAN WITH THE MASK.
Two Daring Attempts at Burg
lary. An Exchange of Shots Between
Augustas Xountze's Gardner
and the Midnieht
On last Friday night a (huing
attempt at burglary was made at
the residence of Herman Kountze,
the banker, living on eighth street.
Some time after midnight, Mrs.
Kountze, her husband being absent,
was awakened, and was horrified to
see a man, closely masked, stand
ing in her bed chamber, and mak
ing explorations for valuables by
the aid of a dim light. She uttered
a cry for help, and the man said
"hush," but upon her continuing to
scream, he fled out of the window
through which he he had entered.
That there was considerable excite
ment in that household during the
remainder of the night, after all the
inmates had learned what had hap
pened, was but a natural result.
Another attempt at burglary, evi
dently by the same man, was made
Sunday night between 12 and 1
o'clock, at the stable on the prem
ises of Mr. Augustus Kountze, in
South Omaha, Mr. Augustus
Kountze and family have been liv
ing in New York for nearly two
years and a half, and during that
time the palatial residence and
beautiful grounds have been in the
charge of Mr. Fisher, the gardner,
wl)o js a faithful and efficient guar
dian, as was proved Jast night. Ho
moIcs a room on the south side of
the house, in s com"
manding a view of the si-JLf "
was awakened by hearing some
hammering in the stable, and know
ing that there were no horses there
in, he thought it very strange.
Jumping from his bed, hastily
throwing on his clothes, and arming
himself with a revolver, he at once
quicklj' proceeded to the stable.
Arriving within about two rods of it,
he perceived, although the night
was rather dark, that the large
double door was open about eigh
teen inches, and that a man was
standing in the aperture. Mr. Fisher
raised his revolver, and fired. The
compliment was promptly returned
by the burglar, who then gave a
whistle, as if for a signal to some of
his "pals," and then took to his
heeLs southward through tho timber,
in which he disappeared. Asheran,
Mr. Fisher tried to take him on the
wing, but the revolver failed to go
Mr. Fisher on examination found
that the door had been pried open,
and that a sleeping room In the
stable had been entered, a ward
robe and trunk broken open, and
the contents selected and piled up
ready for carrying off. The burglar
left behind a file, as the only clue."
Mr. Fisher could not distinguish
his features, but was under the im
pression that the man's face was
disguised by a heavy white
flowing false beard or a mask.
Ho seemed to think that he
lilt the burglar, as no mark
of the ball could anywhere be found
in the vicinity where it ought to
have lodged, if it had missed him.
The daring villain must have been
aware of the absence of Mr.
Kountze, pnd probably Intended
also to go through the house in
hoies of making a good haul.

The Annual Floral Festival
Trinity Sunday School.
Trinity church Sunday evening
was the scene of one of those annual
festivals so dear to the Sunday
School, and so pleasant to the older
members of the church. Yesterday
being Trinity Sunday, the regular
annual Floral festival of the Sun
day School was held in the main
auditorium of the church. The
smiling, happy faces of the many
little folks the white dresses of the
j-oung people contrasting with the
sombre shades of the older portion
of the congregation the hand
some floral decorations of the church
thelteautiful silken banners, with
appropriate mottoes of the different
classes thereon were the elements
of a delightful picture, that gave to
the (ibervera scene long to be re
membered with pleasure.
Promptly at 7i o'clock, the Rev.
Dr. Garrett, announced the opening
hymn, which was sung with much
energy and power, by the entire as
sembly. Following this came the
report of the treasurer, showing the
school clear of debt, with an unex
pended balanccin the treasury. After
the report followed the most pleasant
and entertaining exercise of
the evening; two scholars from each
class, one with the class banner, the
other with the floral tribute, procee
ceeded to the chancel rail where they
were received by the Dean, in a
neat and appropriate speech, to each
of the fourteen classes. It is seldom
if ever that we have heard in suc
cession, fourteen speeches, all en
tertaining and Instructive, and yet
all different, and to suit differ
ent subjects, from one per
sod as we did from
Dr.'Garret last evening. The flow
ers as received, in bouquets, bas
kers, and crosses, were placed upon
a lame cross, trimmed with ever
greens, and presented a truly beau-J
tiful sight. The odors frojn these
flowers fell in grateful fragrance
upon the audience.
After singing another hymn, Dr.
McNamara, President of Nebraska
College, was introduced, and dejjw
ered a sound r radical address, evi
dently intended for the adults pres
ent upon moral culture, as ponnec
ted with Sabbatb schoojs. The adr
dress, though brief, was profound
and scholarlj', and was evidently
the result of much thought and
study. "Wc regret that we have not
the space to epitonize it.
Following tho collection came
Bishop Clarkson, who demonstrated
his ability to talk to children. Few
persons fully realize the difficulty or
responsibility in addressing young
people. Bishop Clarkson does, as

recommends itself, on account of
the convenient location, and the

place. On the opening day, the
proprietor will set an excellent
lunch, and intends always to keep
the finest liquors and cifrars. also
every brand of beer, brewed in this
city, and imported beer from Mil

and the brewer, whose beer the pub
lic pronounces to be the best, will
receive a premium of $10.
We anticipate that J. Damon will
soon be doing a lively business, as
he has in fitting up the Volk's Hall
spared no expense in making it
both pleasant and attractive, and
we would say to the public, that if
they desire to enjoy themselves,
they should attend the opening next
Monday. Good music will be in

It rained all night here, and such
an one. A regular soaker, and it
has done all sorts of good. Small
grain can be counted on as made,
and all crops look splendid. Every
acre is planted that could be, and
the prospect is certainly cheering.
Our town is improving slowly; busi
ness is not so dull as it was. Immi
gration is pourmg in rapidly, and
the outlook for Western Nebraska is
certainly flattering. Our business
men are taking steps to form a com
pany to bridge the Platte. A bridge
is much needed, and will double
the business of our town. It will be
a toll bridge, and a good investment
for any one to take stock in, as you
will readily see by the map, that a
large portion of Hamilton,. Polk
and York counties, will center here
for trade. Our temperance
organization is working well;
most of the old soak
ers have joined and the saloon
trade weakens fast; one already
played out and the other on the
road, with no noise about it hut
quiet, earnest work. Politics quiet ;
our papers are throwing out feelers,
and candidates are plenty, and all
sure to win. No names, however,
are prominent, except at Granu
Island and North Platte. It is sup
posed that Mr. Mobley, of the Inde
pendent, will be the Grange candi

in the State Senate, while it is
hinted that Guy won't give it up.
