A Brace of Bloods From the
Operate Upon the Confidence
of Our Citizens , and
Make a Hasty
It was in the mild September when
two young men hailing from Canada
their first appearance in Omaha , giv
ing the rispectivo names of T. D.
Lindsey and Nathaniel A. Merritt.
During the ensuing winter months
hese two keeners lived in luxury and
style upon money borrowed on the
strength of well told stories of their
Canadian possessions. Some two
months ago Lindsey decamped with
about two hundred dollars thus ob
tained from a party whose confidence
ho had gained by the manipulations
of his oily tongue. Our article , how
ever , deals more particularly with the
adventures of Merritt , a mere lad in
years but old in tricks that are vain.
During the eeven months of his so
journ in this place Merritt never ful
lowed any legitimate employment , but
id ways managed to live on the cieam
of the land. Like others of his clats
he had his mistress , who no doubt
shared with him her ill-gotten wealth.
Ho represented owning large tracts
of land in the dominion of Canada
and claimed to bo highly connected in
Chatham. He succeeded in borrow'
ing several sums cf money by repre
senting himself as being connected
with the firm of Ghddish & Co. ,
druggists , doing business on the cor
ner of Dodjjo and Twelfth ttreet.
The firm , however , disclaim having
ever had any dealings with the fellow.
Merritt is among the tlings that are
missing. On Thursdayho crossed the
stormy Missouri in a ror boat in order
to avoid a possible ecene with friends
who might be at the depot to bid him
a tearful farewell. He wss always of
a retiring nature. Aleut the same
time his paramour tool her departure
by rail , and the twain no doubt made
connection in our aisle ? state , and left
for parts unknown. ,
Merritt is described as being such
a "nico" young fellov that people
would go and borrow .money to lend
him or weep if they coild not accom
modate. Those who kiew him to the
tune of dollars and certs , and partic
ularly a well known Intel proprietor
whom Merritt forgot to settle with for
several months' board , will mourn his
loss , and will express tieir feelings by

THE OTHER SDEr ) >
Statement of Mr. D. W. Griffey
'Concerning His Recent.
To the Editor of TUB BJLE.
In a recent issue of The Omaha
Herald there appeared what purported
to be. the statement of my wife in re
gard to recent troubbs that have arisen
between us , and as the "statement" is
so altogether one-sided both in The
Herald and Republican of the same
date I deem it but justice to myself
as well an to my friends in Omaha and
elsewhere that I be allowed a hearing
n my own behalf , with the hope ,
therefore , that this may be given room
in your columns. I here make the
following truthful record of the whole
wretched affair , that has been so wide
ly circulated :
I was married to Mra. Griffey in
Council Bluffs about five years ago ,
and up to within a few weeks prior to
our recent separation our donlestic
life was peculiarly peaceful and happy.
We settled in Council Bluffs and
made and dwe't in a happy home ,
one singing aud teaching music ,
while I had a position in the U. P. R.
R. offices. We rendcd in Council
Blutfe for three years , when wp re
moved to Omaha , Here her ability as
a vocalist soon became known and for
the past two years her career has been
very successful in this regard. All this
time I retained my position with the
U. P. and until one month ago cure
was the happiest of homee , and right
hera I may say that the statement in
The Republican to the effect that
since resigning my place'with the rail
road , I have taken to drink , is as
false as hdl , are an also nearly all the
other reports in tbat paper with regard
to myself. For ten years I have
avoided intoxicating driokr , and unt'l
within afewdayssince had not touched
them for that length of time.
But to come directly to the cause
of this whole sad affair : some time ago
there came to Omaha a Mr. DeLe , a
musician from the south , and he was
some weeks since joined by his wife ,
also quite an artist. This very worthy
couple at once made their headquar
ters at my home , where the longest
two-thirds of their time was passed ,
much to the satisfaction of myself and
wife , however.
Things went on thus for some time ,
and had they continued so all would
have been well. But about two
months ago there came to Omaha a
"slick-tongued" fellow named Jacobi
and a good musician withal. This fel
low , being on old-time friend of the
DeLes , became acquainted with my
wife , and in a few days I was only a
third-class boarder in my own home.
Go homo when I might , there in
the front room was a party of four :
consisting of Mr. and Mrs. De Lo ,
my wife , aud Jacobi , all playing cardi
in the jolliest kind of a way. Hac
this been only an occasional affair al
would have been lovely , but it wouk
continue from 9 o'clock in the morn
ing until 1 and 2 o'clock at night foi
weeks at a time. And right here , "
will slate , is where my despondent
streaks came in that my wife speaks
of in The Republican's account of the
affair. I would sot for hours at a time
trying to come to some conclusion
what to do , and I will leave it to an ;
man of sense if such work isn't ven
liable to grow monotonous.
This was not all. Mr. and Mrs DeLe
Lo made a couple , my wife and Jacob
made a couple , and of course , when i
was proposed to have ice cream , the
husband ( myself ) was left to take care
of the children.
For several weeks this sort of thinj
continued , until at last I remonstrate !
with my wife. Kindly at first , am
sternly when it became evident tha
stern work was necessary. She prom
ised a reform in the card-playing bus
incss and promised to keep more ou
of the company of the man Jacobi ,
whofo wifa and family reside in ai
eastern state. So far , all was satis
factory , but after a trial I found that
the promise of reform was made only
to be broken. She left our home at 9
o'clock a. in. and went'to Mr. DeLo'i
room where Jacobi always stoppet
remaining there all day. Had to eenc
the girl after her to come to dinner.
After dinner she went back a ain ant
remained there until supper. Thurs
day she did precisely the srmo thing
Friday she did the same with a sligh
variation. When she came home Fri
day to dinner she remained al home
after dinner long enough to make Mr.
Jacobi a necktie on the sewing ma
chine that I presented , to her for a
Saturday morning' , juit as she was
starting for DeLo's , I called her in the
bed room and told her as coolly as ]
conld talk , what she must expect if ]
caught or heard of her being at De
Lo's any more or in company with Ja
cobi. She flew In a passion and toll
mo in very plain English that she
liked their company and would go anc
have them como to our house when
ever she pleased , and defied me and
told mo 1 could not help myself. As
any other man would do und > r like
circumstances I resolved to end the
matter. On the evening of the
"church scene , " as reported in The
Herald anjl also in The Republican , ]
returned homo from down town at an
early hour ) and as a matter of fad
will state that I was somewhat under
the affluence of liquor at the time ,
was growing desperate , and may the
curse of God light on the small soul ol
him who -p-ill deny _ that it was my
right to bo excited and angry. Upon
entering my own house I found the
front room occupied by Mr. DeLe and
wife and upon inquiry learned that my
wife had gone to rehearsal in the ccm-
pany of Jacobi. She had attended
rehearsals alone often and of ten before
and the thought that she should so
soon forget every promise , made me
feel strangely like cutting the throat
of some man and Jacobi in particu
lar. I went to the church and Jacobi
went in under ono of the pew seats ,
hence the ' 'scene" referred to. That I
waj slightly jealous I will allow and
leave it to any man of pride and spirit
to say whether or no I bad cause to be.
And this is all thpro utoit.I felt
that my rights were being interfered
with by a characterless scamp , and
when my wife failed to see matters in
that light , we stopped.
. -Respectfully ,
D. W. GRIFFEY.

Eq , on the above subject , at the
