"OLIVE HARPER. "
A Representative of the "Bee" Gives
an Interesting Sketch of this
A few hours with "Olive Harper , "
surrounded by the comforts which
the traveler of to-day enjoys , when ,
seated in an elegant Pullman car ,
he is whirled along ovr the Un
ion Pacific , forgetful of time and
space , he realizes that he can now
fully enjoy a feast of reason and a
flow of soul. In looking around he
flees the "world on wheels , " and
finds his temporary home is among
the representatives of all classes ;
men and women of every grade of
Intellectual and moral position , and
of every shade of opinion , are his
companions , and if he be worthy he
may choose the best as his especial
As in the world at large. 00 in the

as to give one the idea of a thor

I have rarely met a woman who
seemed to feel so deeply the exalted
privilege of motherhood. With bei
it is the highest anioition , th
crowning glory of woman. Som
of my readers will want to know
about her dress , and I will say that
but for the ( act that 1 can epeak
favorably I would be silent , for
consider that the custom of the uav
in constantly describing woman' !
dress as being her principal feature
is an insult to her.
"Olive Harper" seems to bellev
that dress was made for woman , no
woman for dreis. JNot being ec
centric , she dresses with such ref
erence to the fashions as not to at
tract attention , which is certainly
the true way.
When I met her she was return'
ing from a two months' visit to
California , whijh was necessitated
on account of her health having
been impaired by her labors during
the centennial , where she was the
correspondent of the California
A > ta , New "Xork Graphic , and other
papers , und at the same time mem
ber of the woman's club of " 70 , "
entertaining forty or fifty persons
at her Philadelphia home during
the long months of last syminer ,
and being generally astir , as such a
woman would be at such a time.
" Olive Harper " is a Callfornian
in all out birth , and from her lung
residence there , WHS fully qualified
to write her popular work , " Tweu >

Having been about me world a
good deal with her eyes open , she
could interest Americana with lec
tures on many subjects While in
'Fisco this winter nhe delivered
several succesaful lectures on Tur-
key , and her acquaintance with the
people and customs of that country
are well portrayed in her amusing

If , on the other hand , they looh
at the practical side of life , if tbej
love' their fellow men , and are
willing to remove the veil enough
to allow their hearts to be seen a
little , and the motive springs o :
their natures to show , they will in
turn be richly rewarded by a reve
lation of heart , life , and of earnesi

"Ol've Harper" is a practical
. and as such a progressive woman ,
and in the near future I oelieve wil
occupy a position still in advance
of her present one , upon m < jnj
question ? of to-day. Her love toi
young children ia wonderful , and
her strong magnetism and warm
heart keeps them constantly around
her. With instructions from a
woman "who entertains such lofty
veins of woman's grand duties and
opportunities , which she is ad
vanced enough to earnestly impress
upon them , the amount of good ac

the future life. Earnestly do
I hope that the forthcoming lecture
at Cooper Institute , New York ,

women of America. In that , she
may only show the great advanta

lands , and yet with that , she can
hardly fail to point directly at those
responsibilities in consequence.

NATIONAL SURGICAL INSTI
The Surgeons of this- Institution
Have Arrived , and are Best ged
at the Grand Central Hotel
bj Cripples of Every
The surgeons of the National Wur-
gical Institute , of Indianapolis , ar
rived yesterday and are stopping
at the Grarid Central Hotel The
surgeons of this Institute have frequently -
quently visited Omaha before , and
have successfully operated upon and
treated hundreds of cripples. They
carry with them between three and
four thousand surgical instruments ,
embracing every variety of appli
ances for the correction and cure of
deformities , and are prapared to ac
complish aa effective wor6 wherever
they go , as they do at ho'me. Their
trips are made to accommodate
their many hundreds of patienU all
through the West , and to save for
them their traveling and ether ex
penses which would be incurred by
an Eastern trip. Their patients
are doing well , and the visits of
these surgeons are hailed with de
light by all who need their ser
vices. They have their headquar
ters at Indianapolis , with branch in
stitutions at Philadelphia , Atlanta ,
Georgia ; Austin , lexds and San
Francisco. They are tccompanled
everywhere by a competent ma
chinist to change , icpair and fltsur-
glcal appliances. Long before their
arrival this morning , their rooms ,
previously engaged by them at the
Grand Central , were crowded with
patients from all parts at the coun
try , among whom all sorts of de
formities prevailed. Among the
number were many new ones , who
were to be operated upon for the
the first time.
The surgeons will remain here to
day , and Saturday , and we advise
all who need such aid as they can
give to call upon them immediately.
AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
The Iowa Roads Can Ran Their
Trains Into Omaha.
Information waq received in this
city yesterday that , the Supreme
Court had rendered a decision in the
case of Council Bluffs vs. the Kan
sas City , St. Joe and Council Bluffs
railroad company to the effect that
the Iowa law prohibiting railroad *
companies , whose road terminate
on the west side of the Missouri
river , from running their trains
across the Missouri river bridge into
Nebraska was unconstitutional and
therefore void. So it will be seen
that the Iowa roads can run over to
Omaha if they want to.
The Council Bluffs Nonpareil says
that the decision , however , is not
one under the circumstances winch
will materially affect the interests
of Council BluSs. The suit was
brought before the decision in refer
ence to the transfer question was
rendered by the Supreme Court of
the United States , and as that ques
tion is now forever settled in favor
Council Blufb , all the eastern and
southern roads will find it to their
nterest to make their connection
with the Union Pacific on the Iowa
aide of the nver.
THE programme lor the concert
to be given by the Congregational
hurch choir will be published soon ,

Omaba Men Make Big Coal Strike.
A few days ago the BEE referred
to the coal bonanza which had been
recently struck near Hamburg ,
Iowa , about fifty miles from this
city , by an Omaba company , ol
which M. A. Kurtz , of the auction
firm of Kurtz & Allen , is president ,
and J. M. Stmeral is secretary. Th'e
following concerning the same is
from yest.rday'e Council Bluffs
"From information received from
Hamburg , in Fremont county , we
learn that an extraordinaiy discov
ery of coal has just been made in
that vicinity. In one place , at a
depth of sixteen feet coal was found
the vein being from 22 to 28 inches
in thickness. Not satisfied \vlth
that discovery , another trial was
made within a half mile of centre
of town , and at a depth of 137 feet
a vein , was struck of about
five feet in thickness , of the
very best quality of coal ,
under which was found to be a very
fine bed of fire clay. This vein of
coal is estimated to be two miles
wide. A company has been organ
ized and is known as the Hamburg
Coal and alining Company , with
M. A. Kurtz as president , and J.
M. Himerel as secretary They
commenced sinking a shaft seven

roads. If the above reported dis
coveries are genuine , and coal 1-t
is found ia such quantities as Mated ,
it is of great importance to that
town and vicinity , and also to our
own city. It will open up another
source of coal supply to us , and by
cheapening the price of fuel hasten
the day when Council Bluffs will
be able to compete with anv city in
the west in manufacturing enter
And the Nonpareil could truth
fully have added , without straining
a point , that Omaha will be equally

The Council Bluffs Nonpareil
Bays : "A couple of young men ,
residents of this city , went over to
Omaha yesterday and got them
selves into trouble by drinking too
much "hot scotch , " and the like.
For this they were arrested and
brought before the Police Court.
They managed , however , to secure
the postponement ot their trial until
to-day , and gave bonds for their ap
pearance , when they came home
full possibly of regrets. "
The attention of the proper au
thorities is called to a dangerous
bole in the sidewalk , on the north
side of Farnbam street , between
Tenth and Eleventh. Several per
sons have already fallen through it
and have barely escaped breaking
their limbs , and as it was they re
ceived several severe bruises. Be
neath is a cellar , into which a pe
destrian may fall at any time dur
ing these dark nights and not frac
ture their limbs but break their
necks. It is not only criminal neg
ligence on the part of the city to
allow this unprotected place to re
main a moment longer , but the city
is liable for heavy damages for any
accident that may occur there.
Several railroad companie :
have adopted the plan of issuing
their editorial free passes for the
present year with the photograph
of the person accepting the pass af
fixed thereto. If the photograph
tails to identify the person using it
the pass is taken up and cancelled.
This plan , though rather a humilia
ting commentary upon the honesty
of the average- editor , ia yet a novel
experiment , and will probably
prove remunerative to the com pa
nies However in some cases , this
plan may not work s effectively as
expected , For instance , in Umaha ,
there is a gent I em in who is often
mistaken for a certain newspaper
man , and vice versa. So the gentle
man referred to could very easily us-e
the newspaper man's pass over
those railroads which have adopted
the photograph plan.
