The programme of the third and
last concert is before us, and whilst
we could have wished to have seen,
in accordance with our expressed
views upon the occasion of the sec
ond concert, more vocalization and
less instrumentation; still we are
satisfied that the management has
done the best possible with its pres
ent available material, and are in
clined to believe that the third and
last concert of the season, which
takes place on Thursday evening
next, will be the best of the series.
It is the province of every honor
able, high-toned journal, to give to J
its readers a fair review of all enter- !
tainments which appeal to the pub

In justice to him it should be
stated that he made complaint on
the first of the month as required,
against all the inmates, who were
known as such. In many cases
they are brought before the court,
and cannot pay their fines, and in
the exercise of that clemency which
is my prerogative I give them fur
ther time. Sometimes it is neces
sary to re-arrest them, and that has
frequently been donebyaconstaole,

Prostitution is an evil, which, like
the sale of intoxicating drinks, can
not, in cities, be entirely suppressed.
I am not prepared to say but that
the system adopted in Omaha is as
good as any. It is attended with
considerable trouble, especially
against the refractory.
I hardly think it necessary for me
to state that no " rapacious hawks"
or "spies" are tolerated right under
the nose of the Police Judge, to my
knowledge. I have no control of
the Marshal or police, and it is not
my purpose to vindicate the defense
of either, except in so far as a state
ment of facts may tend to cxenoratc
them from the serious charges you
make against their official action.

This troupe returns to Omaha al
most entirely re-organized, hardly
any of tho old members now being
connected with it. The new organ

performers, among whom are some
of the most talented minstrels in
tho country- J. II. Green, the orig

nightly with the Wagner boys,
while Ren Brown shakes an arustiu
hoof as a jig dancer. The vocal

is composed of accomplished sing

for last evening's entertainment at

Some time ago, "William Alstadt,
having seen a report that Prince
Frederick Carl, brother of Emperor

make a tour of the world, by way of
California, sent him an Invitation in
the name of the Miunnechoi Society,

The Hystcry Solved The Body of
Count Harris Found.
Sometime la-t winter, "Count"
Harri-,a c. nductoron the Hannibal
& St. Joe R. R. and one of tno most
!opular and widely-known railroad
men in the country, mysteriously
disappeared, and it was supposed by
his relatives and many friends, that
he had, while laboring under an at
tack of i-isanity, wandered away,
become lost, and peiished. All ef
forts to find him proved futile, not
withstanding the large reward of
$1,000 tint was offered for reliable
information of him.
From Mr. Treat, the general west
ern travi,inj?ngetit of the Michigan
Central & Great Western railway,
who arri -ed In the city last evening,
we learn that the deep mystery
which has shrouded his disappear
ance h.is at last been penetrated.
His bjdy was found by two colored
boys on Sunday morning In a rive-,
two or three miles from Camden,
Missouri, half buried in the tand,
with the feet sticking upward.
They at once reported the discovery,
and when it was found that the
body was really that of the missing
Count, the fact was at once tele
graphed to his relatives. His costly
gold watch and chain, $300 in
money, and his diamond pin were
found undisturbed upon his person.
The colored boys will undoubtedly
receive the reward between them.

ner a? to elicit the unqualified com
mendation of a majority of the cul
tivated portion of this community.
Neither shall we, in the future, be
deterred from discharging that
pleasant function by the snappish
remarks of any obscure, wandering
minstrel, whose sole complaint is
that his little "tool" cannot be heard
in any other manner than through
the public prints.
All criticism is beneficial only so
far as it is just. This rule applies
with peculiar force to home talent
Criticism with severe strictures upon
a body of home singers has gener
ally been considered as out of place.
Rut because they are " above criti
cism" it does not necessarily follow
that they are beyond the reach of a
kindly hint, prompted by the most
unsclfifeh motives. If, therefore, the
recommendations of a number of
musical people who are good judges
of the production of classic music,
cannot be tolerated,we shall most as
suredly drift into that terrible social
bore, a society that is so touchy that it
The unanimous verdict of many
competent judges fixed the fact
that the second Philharmonic con
cert was, so far as regarded the
instrumental nortion. too long: and
we are glad to learn that its man
agers have wisely accepted that de
cision and have curtailed the pro
portions of that feature in their next
entertainment. With regard to the
question of practice amongst its
members in their own houses, which
we some time since urged, if, as has
been suggested, numbeiless and
studious rehearsals are detrimental,
then all we can say is, that music
has certainly become an easier art
in the West that it has in the East.
The selection ot pieces for the
third and last concert has been ac
complished with much care and ex
cellent judgment, and the result
will prove that on no former occa
sion has there been so fine a dis
play of classical music, vocal and
instrumental, as that which will
greet the ears of the Philharmonics
and their friends at ShoaPs Hall on
Thursday evening next.
How Mr. Wilson Captured a Couple of
For Pome time past, the corn crib
of Mr. Wilson, a farnjer Jiving about
throe and a half miles southwest of
the city, has been entered during
the night, and corn taken there
from by some unknown tiueves.
Last Sunday night, at a very late
hour, Mr. Wilson was awakened by
a noise near his com crib, and,
hastily throwing on his clothes, and
arming himself with a long club, he
ran out to catch the thieves, as they
really were. He saw them loading
up a wagon with the corn, but they
became aware of his exit from the
house as soon as he opened the door,
and whipping up their herses they
started off, through the gate. Re
taking a short-cut, Mr. Wilson
caught up with the wagon, climbed
up the rear end, and raised the club.
The brace of thieves thinking it
was a mm. tried to protect their
heads, aud then tumbled off the
wagon nearly frightened to death.
Mr. Wilson jumped off also, and
caught one of them before he could
regain his feet. Meantime the oth
er fellow, taking advantage of the
situation, overtook the wagon, and
drove off in triumph. The captured
corn-thief begged most piteously,
and said ho came only to help his
comrade, who did all the stealing.
On his promising never to be caught
in a similar scrape, and agreeing to
settle up for all tho corn that had
been stolen, Mr. Wilson let him go.
The names of both of theso sneak
thieves are known to Mr. Wilson,
who proposes to mako It hot for
them if they do not pay for the corn
Editor Bee :
A great deal has been written in
reference to State Prisons and Pro
tective Unions, and it is a very
difficult matter for one of my edu
cation and abilities to dwell upon.
My course through life, especially in
the last year has been very check
ered, but still I strive to hold up my
head and to face society. I would
like you to place this communica-
tiion in your valuable columns, if
you thing it proper for the purpose
of bringing before the eyes of the
public, the mean actions exercised
by the Painters' union of Omaha.
On the 1st day of May, 1S73, 1
came to the city of Omaha, for the
purpose of engaging in the work of
painting. As 1 was a workman of
nn mean order. I soon found em
ployment with the firm of Lehman
& Reard. Several weeks afterward
I took to drinking, and while intox
icated I broke the laws of the State
cf Nebraska. I was confined in the
county jairfor the period of forty
days, and after a severe lecture from
the Hon. Judge Lake, was sen
tenced to one year at hard labor in
the State Prison. I was taken to
that institution and served ten
months and twenty-seven days,
ilir lmlaiieo of the vear I
was aiiowea oy iaw ior . guuu
conduct and was discharged
on last Wednesday morning. I
made up my mind to stop drinking
and came to this city for the pur
pose of trying to be an honest man
and good citizen. I called on my
old employers, and as -they knew
the circumstances of my case they
offered me work, which I eagerly
accepted. I worked Wednesday
and Thursday, and a great many
times I was abused by these so
called Union men by their mention
ing to strangers that I had just come
out of the State prison. I bore up
under their taunts and tried
to do what was right.
Rut they still hampered at me un
til they saw that it was no use, for I
would not notice them. Two young
men in the shop took my part and
they wore informed by these Union
men that if they did not join tho
Union they could not work in that
shop in the future; or in other
wools, they intended to run Messrs.
Lehman & Reard's business. These
young men did not join the Paint
ers' Union, and the Union men sat
isfied themselves by forming into a
clique for the purpose of throwing
me out of employment. In that
they succeeded for they had aH
nrovinuslv resolved that if I was
retained in tho shop they would all
quit work. How well they played
their little game, for well they knew
that their employers was rushed
with work, and consequently I was
discharged. Iliad the promise of
work all summer by the firm, and I
might have wade myself a respect

When the Union men went to
Messrs. Lehman & Beard and told
them they would leave if Bennett
was allowed to contlnqo at work,
Messrs. L. & B., who were con
vinced that Bennett was trying to
do right, and therefore deserved to
be encouraged, told the Union
men that they could not leave any
too soon to suit them, under the
circumstances of the case. They
accordingly left. Bennet, who was
out working around town when this
occurred, upon hearing of their ac
tion, immediately went to Messrs.
L. & B. and said that he could not
possibly work any more for them,
as he had already got them into
trouble. Nothwithstanding the so
licitations of Mesrs. L. & B. to him
to remain, and theirassurances that
they would stand by him to their
own loss, he persisted in his deter
mination. After his departure from the shop,
the Union men returned and were
allowed to go to work, as Messrs.
L. & B. hail a great rush on hand.
