There aoems to bo a curious fatality
attending the workv of the Omaha
Smelting and llelh'ing company.
Such a succession of misfortune
would , a few centuries asjo , have giv
en a belief that the tput was
accursed. To begin with the grim
visaga of death hovers over the spot ,
no man beii-g able to work within its
w& la for any great length without
being poisoned by the deadly atmos-
pheto. But a few months ago fire
attacked it , again the shadow of war
cast Its threatening presence over it ,
a week since mid the waters robe
against H , Mid yesterday the Ilnnnjs
renewed their attack , and were only
prevented from devouring the entire
institution by the almoat superhuman
of our gtHant firemen.
It was nearly 5 o'clock laat evening

It waa with the utmobt difficulty that
die atoaii.era and hooks could get to
tht-ir siilions ; , the yard being eur-
rounded by the high water , and the
only path by which to gain access
being the side-track runnini ; in at the
south g-ite. Ovar thia the horses
drew the hi avy engines , and the hook
and Lvlder track and BOOH No ? . 2 and

work , while iho "Pioneers" with their
ladder ] soiled the roof and devoted
their energies to preventing its falling
a prey to the devouring element. The
Duranta were also evrly on the spot
and took their station on the north
eido HO that the buildings wore guard
ed on over } ' aide. At this time the
ti'-l destruction of the Works seemed
inevitable , nllj the superintendent ,
Mr. Hilbach , saj , iH would not have

dreds thronged nlong the traiXo ,
covered th < > roofs of c.irs or gathered

t'.e progress i-f the threatened cala
mity. Among the latter were scores
of c images so that it resembled some
contest in the arena and the blulli a
vast iimpilhe-itre filled with eager
spectators. The. flames 1 urnei in the
great intensity and nearly scorched the

car arrived and took up its poaitiou
and from that moment it became evi
dent ihat it waa an unequal contest
with the firemen in the ; iaccnd < tncy.
Stre.unh of water were poured on from
every quarter , the source beinj ; the
cwollon flood of the Missouri itself , ita
capacity Biillicent to drown the fires at
the auu. Above the glowing fires
arched a dozen brilliant and beautiful
rainbows and their Mollification waa
never truer. Slowly the crimson
tongues of Ore ceased to lp up the
pr perty upon which they fed , smoke
and uteam drowned out the beda of
fierce tliunus which were visible through
tiio chinks in the wooden structures
and finally blackened embers and
doaolale 1-ioking clock rising naked
above the ruins told that the work waa
accomplished aud the institution
Whfn there w.xs time to inquire a *
to the origin of the catastrophe
it was learned that the
fire waa first discovered in H small
building back of thu office ,
uaed as a storehouse. In
one portion of thia was stored a quan
tity -f liuiK , aud beneath it the water
Imd worked its way. It i.i believed
that in Home way thu water came in
contact with the lime and slacked it ,
and from it the building was fired.
In the same building weiu quantities
of blue vitrol , coke and charcoal , all
partitioned .iff from each other. Mr
Uoyt , the assi yor , aud the gato-kee- |
er discovered the tireabuut the same
time , and the latter rang the alarm
bell and g.ivo the cry of lira. At that
time the ro.oii waa full of smoke , but
it bn.ko Into flame with stattliug rap
idity , and in the space of sixty seconds
ends had enveloped the whole build
ing In fin1. From ilna it spread to the
retort r. om , then to the aide furnnce
room and plstf-Tm and sheds. Theaa
three buildii ga were totally destroyed
as wore silao the platforms upjn which , bullion , ( -to. , are unloaded from
the cars. The cupall shop was saved
by the hardest exertions , and to the
devoted work of the firemen and oth
ers can alone bj attributed the saving
of a single wall of all the cluster of
buildings. The materhl destroyed
wai inconsiderable , and the buildings
were old , being the first put up of the
entire lot. The huge stacks and fur
naces were ieft standing unharmed ,
and the managers estimate the loss at
not exceeding ? GOGO , and perhaps
within $5,000. All this is amply se
cured by the insurance held in nine
companies , represented by Messrs.
Murphy t Lovett. None of the men
will be thrown out of work , as there
will bi sufficient occupation In clear
ing up the debris and making repairs.
New buildings will scon replace the
old ones , and except for the Immedi
ate pecuniary loss to the managers ,
the damage will scarcely be felt.
Our reporter was requested by the
managers to say that they appreciated
the fact that but for the noble work of
the firemen they must have sustained
the loss of the works entire.

Mr. John Martin , Iho fri"iid with

in the city Friday morning for the
purpose of inking thu body back with

Mr. Martin Bays the deal man had
a boat of friends in Ohicago , by whom
the news of his death was received
with surprise and deep mourning.

A farmer who livts south west of

that on the mvcnin f the murder , aa

man came out of iho brush near Har

and asked him for a ride.
He allowed the man to got

out and left him. Ho was an Italian ,
and didn't h.xvo much to say. Ho

information was received which led

The cause of this unusual commotion
was the receipt of a telegram by the

murderer , had been observed entering

The Plattsmouth operator seemed

Alleged Fickleness of Omaha
Business Men.
Railway Miscellany.
In conversation with a prominent
; entleraanofOmnh yesUrdayonewell (
versed tn railroad matters , a-BKB re-
portar observed that ho liad bren led
to believe that when the PhtUmouth
bridge shall have been completed ,
Omaha will bo greitly benefittud by a
coiuequunt reduction of freight-rates.
The railroad man snid that such an
impression was gaining a circulation
in the city , but he could not see it in
tint way. He argued that the C. B.
& Q , would not be likely to initiate a
war with the ) maha bridge for the
uke of this city's patronage alone ,
when it could make much larger profits
on the cast-bound U. P. through
freight which it carries for three or
four hundred miles from Kearney to
Plattsmouth. And even 'f It ever did
conclude to sacrifice this patronage to
help Omaha himineps men , the lat
ter would not stick .by it
any length of time. "It has
occurred several tiuiea , " said he ,
"during my long residence in Omaha ,
that thii biisinocH men have gone back
on all contracts wit-h steamboats and
railroads whenever a second road
comeH in with its bid to do a well by
them aa any other. These men are to
blame fi r ho extortionate rates now
exacted of them , and unless they
show in-ira stability and fairness they
will guffer until death overtakes
them. "

[ * he Old Firm of Stephens &
Wilcox makes an As
It will bo a surprise to many to
: now that the firm of Stephens &
Wilcox , one of the oldest doing busi-
neas in this city , made an assignment
, o-day , and have closed their doors.
Oils firrii has been in business
n this city for over 15 years ,
and ha ? always stood high
n reputation for honor and honesty.
Chefr bii'iinofs ' has beun in general
hat ot dry goods and post-traders'
supplies , and the secret of the trouble
s believed to be bad accounts made
in the latter department , a it is
mown that collodions have been
jeer for several months
wat. It is certain that there h no
dishonesty in the failure , and there
is a general feeling of regret over their
misfortune. The bulk of the indebt
edness is with relatives , not over 25 to
33 per cent of it being to eastern
creditors. The indebtedness probably
reaches 875,000 to $100,000 , and the
firm , wo understand , claims that their
aascta will cover nil liabilities. The
matter has bean kept very quiet and
business run along as tuual until it
became evident that there was no al-
ternalivu , and Mr. Jacob U. Hen-
drix. was to-day authorized to
close out their afFura , and Is this
afternoon making an inventory. Iltd
the firm not sunk a fortune in bad ac
counts with pnat traders it is believed
no such disaster would have over
taken them.
