A CRYSTAL CROSSING.
Captain J. R. Porter's Ice
Bridge Over the Missouri.
Aa Enterprise Promising Big
The efforts of Hon. JohnR. Porter
to combat the "Cuion Pacific bridge
monopoly during the past year , by
maintaining a cheap ferry and his suc
cess in reducing the rate of bridge
tolls and fares , are well known to our
citizens. _ _
With the closing tip of navigation
the ferry boats were laid np but the
indomitable spirit of Capt. Porter was
not thus to be conquered , and he has
again opened to the public a cheap
thoruehfare between this city ana the
Iowa shore. Our reporter was
'yesterday permitted the pleasure
of a drive from Omaha to the oppos
ite city by Captain Porter's line , and
with the exception of one obstacle ,
which will be removed in a few days ,
found it quite an enjoyable trip.
At the foot of Jones street a wide
bridge spans the space from the top of
the ice which has formed
the ! rip-rap to ,
ed a gorge frcm the bridge to the
foot of Farnham street , and forms a
eafe ; and smooth natural bridge over
the waters of the Big Muddy
From this bridge , which is elghf y-five
feet ( in length , to the other shore , a
track is marked out upon the ice by
sawdust shewn on pretty thickly and
tne : whole track is as smooth as a
pived et. The ice over the channel
nel is over eight inches thick and con
From the other side the captain has
constructed a road , the grade of
which is above high water mark , and
which crosses the bayou at the further
extremity of the flats , by mcins
of a wide and substantial bridge 103
feet in length. This rests on poles
driven in the ground to a depth of
twenty ieetand its largest span is thir
ty-six feet. Its floor is of heavy ,
three incti planking , and is three feet
above high water level. It will withstand
stand the severest June rise of the
The amount of money , time , labor
and skill expended on this road is sim
ply surprising , and we are of the
opinion that Captain Porter has
built up a more valuable
property than he himself dreams of.
Ho has in reality paved the way for
the easy construction of a second
bridge , and we believe it will result in
this at no distant period.
The obstacle alluded to above is the
crossing of the Omaha and Southwest
ern twcks , two of which cress his
route at the foot of Jones street and
arj very eerlous and annoying ob
structions , to a public thoroughfara.
The track - layers have promised
to build a crossing this
week , and the ice bridge will then be
thrown opjn to Jhe public at a very
low rate of toll , and must for many
reasons win the patronage of most of
the travel between the two cities , as
it is the shortest , quickest , best and

TWO MEN AEHESTED.

Spaulding , one of Mr. J. E. Boyd's
men , who keeps accounts at his pack
ing house , was robbed of s coat and |
ol underclothing , and about § 5 in I
small change. Mr. Spaulding owns a
small saloon near the establishment ,
occupying ( the rear room as a sleeping
room , and the clothes were taken
from this room and the money from
the till. Suspicion fell upon a man
who had formerly tended bar for him
and the officers who were
put on the scent went over
to Oouncil Bluffs , "the headquarters
for crime , etc , " where all the property -
perty , except the underclothing and
cash , were recovered from a store at
which they had been disposed of. Two
men , John Hogan and John O'Neill , '
have been arrested and put in jail on
the charge of grand larceny and had
their examination before Judge Hawes
this afternoon at 3 o'clock. O'Neill ia
the old brr tender but Hogan is be
lieved to be the leader in the scheme.
" "A SERIOUS CRIME. '
Deputy Marshal Ben Weaterdahl
laft last night for Waterloo , Iowa ,
to testify in the casa of two men '
ono of whom was arrested in this city
by officer McClure in July last.
These men robbed and outraged a deh
fenselcss widow woman , communica-
a loathsome disease , and atterwards
fled the country. Deputy Sheriff
Hdzlett followed them to Omaha ,
where one of the parties , named
Montague was arrested by officer
McClure , who had only the deecripa
tion of the man to work npcn. And ,
by the way , officer McClure ia given
charge of all the nion delicate and im
portant detective work , for which he
is peculiarly qualified and has made
some moat important arrests since his
appointment many of which have never
been given to the public. Upon
Montague's person were found a gold
and silver watch , a knife and revolver ,
all of which property was subsequently
identified. Montague and a companion
stole , ajb oat at Sioux City and came to
Omaha in it , the boat being confiscated .
by the police and afterwards in turn
confiscated by some river thief. The
two men do not deny their guilt and
will probably go up for twenty years

Startling Solution of a recent
The Parents to be Confronted
With the Exhumed
The readers of THE BBS will re-call
the circumstances of tha finding of the
dead body of an infant , in a basket , In
the Nprthwestern baggage room , at
Oouncil Bluffs , a few days ago ,
nursing bottle partly filled with milk
and a cold brick which had been
warm , indicating that the child had
been placed in Its narrow receptacle
alive and had frozen or starved to
Pinned to the clothing was a slip of
piper , bearing the name , "Stephen
Vincent , " and addressed to "Mr.
King , Guardian of the Poor , Round
Grove , Ills " The circumstances sur
rounding the case led Marshal Fitz
gerald , of Sterling , Ills. , to the be
lief that the child was from that place ,
and from these slight clues he began
his investigations , which resulted in
the discovery that Stephen Yincent
was the child of Mies Mary A. P ,
O'Connor . , formerly a Sister of Char
ity at Sterling , and of Rev. John
Daly , ex-parish priest of the same
Marshal Fitzgerald came io Counci
Bluffs Tuesday and had the body
exhumed and forwarded to Sterling
and the guilty pair will be arrested
His supposition is that the child irzs
dead when placed in the bas'set and
that that was done to lead to the ba
liof that it had been allovad , un nieu
tiooally to freeze to death. Wo an
not inclined , however , to this theory ,
but rather to the belie
that the child was phced
on the train alive , iu thi
hope that it would reach the trustee
of the poor , at Round Grove , and be
properly cared for. It , however , re
mained undiscoveed until it was final
ly landed at Council Bluffi , and there
remained ( in the baggage room through
a bitter cold night.
It Is a sad case , and had created an
immense sensation at Stirling.
