President Boyd , -whcae term of of
fice expired with this meeting , then
delivered his annual address , in which
he said that , while in Omaha a Board
of Trade could not be made a success
ful business mart , yet this body had
rendered valuable service to the city
and state in many ways. He alluded
to the growth of the city during
the past year ami prophesied an in
creased expenditure of money in per
manent improvements through 1881.
He considered it almost a certainty
that a large hotel , which is one of
Omaha's greatest needs , would bo
built on the ground where the Grand
Central stood. The arrangements for
auch a hotel would have been made
long before this had it not been for
vexatious law suits , which , it is bo-
licvcd , will soon be disposed of.
It was probable that water would be
flowing through the pipes of the
water works company by July 1st.
Ho called attention to the fact that an

tion of the pork - packing business
here , the organization of man
ufacturing companies and the oppor

condition of the wholesale trido of
Omaha and the increasing proportions
of the retail trade.
The need of wiser management of
public affairs was discussed , and the

Daring the past three years the
railroad tonnage arriving at Omaha has
fully doubled , which is found to bo
the case in almist every branch of
business carried en in the entire state ;
and in this same period fully 10,000
people have found occupation
and homos in our city. The
conclusion drawn from this is that the
expansion of trade is far beyond the
present population , and that the great
demand for labor and material of all
kinds , taking into consideration the
free homes and cheap lands of No-
braaks , will enlarge the present tide
of immigration end eottlement far
beyond anything heretofore known in
the history of the state
The subject of cheaper transporta
tion was discusccd , with the methods
of bringing about that end. The time

LIKCOLK , January 4 , 10 p. m.
Considerable surprise is expressed in
many quarters at the defeat of Church
Howe and the election of a pronounc
ed anti-monopoly spaakerof the house.
Dp to 10 o'clock this morning the op
position to Howe appeared sadly de
moralized ; while he and his support
ers kept up a bold front aud created
the impression that ho had a walk
away. By half-past 10 o'clock nearly
all tbo candidates had been withdrawn
accepting Slocnmb and Shedd. About
11 o'clock the republican members , in
response to the call for a general
caucus , asiemblad at the hall of the
house. Gtd Slaughter , chief clerk of
the late house , wis chosen temporary
oliaiimtn After some preliminaries
the roll was called , and sixty odd
members responded. Quito a lively
debate occurred batween Mr. ICaley
and Church Howo. ICaley reminded
the caucus that "two of the promi
nent candidates for speaker wcra ab-
nent , and thuir friends may not oven
know of the existence of Iho caucus. "
Howe thought there was a "full un
derstanding about this caucus. Wo
are here as A republican cvjfcus , to
vote for those uho are here. There
arc Gl votes. " Mr. Kaley agreed with
Howe that the absentees should bo
b und by the action of this caucus ,
provided they were advised by the au
thority of the caucus.
Mr. Basllett said "tho majority
are here and I know of no better
time to setllo the matter than now.
Have been adviaed by friends and am
ready to abide by the decision. ' Mr
Hostettor of Merrick , withdrew from
the caucus on the ground that it was
nut a representative body and ho
would not be bouud by its actions.
Ballotticg then commenced. Church
Howa was still confident of
success and flushed with vic
tory by what ho supposed
was the withdrawal of the opposition.
While the balloting was progressing
the absentees all came in , and the re
sult was , on the informal ballot Howe
received 29 votes , Slocumb 13 , Shedd
28 , Bartlett 2 , and Shiek 2. The
formal ballot was then ordered , and
Mr. Slocumb'a name was withdrawn.
The result was , Howe received 30
votes and Shedd 41. Me. SLedd was
then declared the nominee of the
caucus. That cooked Howe's goose.
Incidentally it may not bo nnmter-
oBtlng to mention that of all the re
publican members of the delegation
from Douglas , only two voted against
Church Howe Bartlett and Bollli.
The democrats , not to bo behind
hand , got up a caucus of their own
and went throiigh all the motions aa
ifj they had control of both houses.
Nine of them mot "in a body" and
resolved to support Mr. Holnian , of
Dakota county , for speaker firat , last
aud all the time. And they livid up
to their pledge like little men.
Both houses were ctlled together p.t
the appointed hour. Lieutenant Gov
ernor Cams caHei the senate to crder ,
and that august body , after appoint
ing their committee on credentials ,
adjourned until 4 o'clock. The same
coureo was pursued in the house. The
outcome of these preliminaries has
nlreaily been telegraphed , and the
only interesting incident worth men
tioning is the neat little speech deliv
ered by Speaker Shedd in taking pos-
lieRB'on of the gavel. It was by all
odiJs the mcst appropriate address of
the kind that ha * been delivered with
in my hearing in 'ho past ten years ,
from the same clnir , jinc 1 am sure it
will not worry tha readora of THE BEE
too much to peruse it. Mr. Shedd
spoKe as follows :
Ilr NOKABLE MEMBERS OF THE LEO-
IS ! , VTUUE : I thank you for this prac
tical expression of your regard forme ,
and the more because of tno eminent
qualifications of all the candidates for
this position. I accept the honor
not as an honor to myself , especially ,
but aa a tribute to Sannders county ,
which , having no incorporated city
withm its limits , has the largest agri
cultural population of any county in
the state. Thorerofore I accept
my election as a tribute to
that labor which , duriog the
years wo all expect to see , will lift the
great attic of Nebraska to the highest
place among her peora. If I apprehend -
hond the facts aright the session now
commencing will not be a mere winter
holiday , but a period of earnest , work.
On this legislature the paople have
devolved a great task , which they ex
pect us to perform honestly , faithfully
and earnestly ; and with a niso econ
omy of time and money.
The people will not recognize the
claims of any ono act of legislation to
absorb or monopolize attention , but
will expect the legislature to take nd
vantage of all that has been found
wisest and best In the judgment of the
older states to aid in the develop
ment of this newer stato. But there
must be no crippling of the energies
of the state by imperfect legislation ,
for in the court of the people
plausible . .experiments wili bo
regarded as simple mistakes Do I
, voice your thoughts in iho hope that
every perfected piece of legislation
shall be as permanent as the noble
structure } ender ( referring the new
wing of the capital ) .
Again , I thank you , and with any
imperfections displayed in the dis
charge of my duties , hope your for
bearance will bo as wide as the bean
tiful paairica of our adopted state.

LINCOLN , Neb. , January 5.
Scarcely had Mr. Shedd been iu-
ducted into his Eeat before the vul
tures , jobbora and cappers were mik
ing him their object of special devo
tion. Ho was besot by pretended
friends who expressed unbounded joy
over his elevation , aud feasted his
ears with flattery. The political
managers of the monopoly resorted to
their usual tactics when they ar.i beat
en. Thurston and hia aides did not
dare to bring direct pressnro upon Mr.
Shedd , but they exerted their influ
ence indirectly through such men as
Governor Nonce , who is as much a U.
P. man aa Thurstonand through Dis
trict Attorney Reese and Judge Post ,
who are active allies of his excellency.
They desired to impress the speaker
with the grave responsibilities
tJiat rested upon him in
making up his committees with im
partiality , that is to say they wanted
him to be just aa liberal toward the
railroads and the jobbers as he is to
ward the people. I had a few min
utes' interview with Mr. Shedd , and
ho assured mo that he was an inde
pendent man , indebted to no faction
ixnd desired to do hia duty with strict
fairness and impartiality. I have no
doubt Mr. Shedd's intentions are ex
cellent in the main , but I fear he will
lose sight of the faqt that he cannot
yield to the indirect pressure of the
monopoly representatives and wire
jnllers , without betraying the sacred
rust reposed in him by his constitu-
> nts. Mr. Shedd ia a new man in pub
ic lifeand he may commit the blunder
of allowing pretended friends ,
who are aitin as cappers
for monopolies and for senatorial
cindidates of the monopoly , to bar-
cer away important positions on the
committees under his very nosOj
while ho simply labors dnder the de
lusion that he is making an impartial
distribution. I admire Mr. Shedd's
independence , and hope ho will not
identify himself with factions while
in the speaker's chair , or commit the
serious blunder of classing the pro
ducers of ihe statcj who demand cf
this legislature a strict compliance
with its sworn duty in dealing frith
corporate monopolies aud tenatorisl
cindidates of monopolies , as a politi
cal faction. Mr. Shedd U a young
man with more than ordinary talents ,
and he has K very bright falura before
him if he discards the policy of trim
mers and fence riders , who pretend to
bo independent , but always fall over
on the side of capital and corporations.
For his sake as well as for tile a&ka of
taxpayers of Nebraska , I hope ho will
orgauizj his committees for wholesome
legislation in the interest of the pee
ple. E R.

After electing a few additional
minor officers and clerk ? , both houses
went into joint convention to canvass
the veto for t-angressman and stile
officers. At 1:15 an adjournment was
taken to 3 p. m. , whtn Gov. Nance
will deliver hia message , which will
appear in full in our next issue. The
message is a plain , brief business doc
ument. Its chief feature is the omission
of any reference to the transportation
question , or the seventh plank of the
republican platform , upon which
"Nance was lately ra-elected , nnd which
pledged the party and its candidates
to rail way- legislation in accord with

A. BESTJRHEOTION STOEY ,
An Omaha Man's Coolness
in Dealing With Curious
Killed , Revived and Killed
Mr. W. M. Ktctt , fm ) of
Omaha , but now residing at Dillon
Station , the teruiinin of the Utah
Northern , floO miles above Ogden ,
came in on Monday evening's train td
stay a few clays. A reporter of THE
BEE , in conversation with him , learn
ed that Omaha has several represent
atives in Dillon , among others Mr.
Robert Byrne , a brother of the late
John E. Byrne , of this city. Con
cerning this gentleman , Mr. Knott
tells a story which will bear repetition
for its flavor of frontier experience.
Mr. Byrne ia a carpenter by trade ,
and has a shop in Dillon. About
three weeks ago a bhinaman employed
in a restaurant at Dillon , and who
w.is a confirmed opium eatar , dropped
dead , as wai supposed , on the floor
of the restaurant. The proprietor
notified his countrymen who came in
ono hundred and fifty strong , to look
at the body , but declined- take it
oll'his hands or contribute toward a
burini fund. At length the proprie
tor , thrown on hia own resources ,
offered Byrne § 10 to take the body to
Ida ahop and take care of it , and § 25
moro to make a cofEa and give the
body a 'Iseent interment.
Mr. Byrne accordingly took the
Corpse away , made the coffin and
placed the body -herein , ; iml was just
( jutting the lid on to nail it down ,
tflien up tos John Chinaman in his
c fnn sr.il be mi jabbering heathen
Chinee t him.
Although somewhat surprised the
pro tern underraker Bent again for tbo
Chinaman , this was the evening of the
same day , and they opened their
hearts so far as to contribute the
money to buy a quart of whisky for
their companion , and then loft
him in Byrne's care. The
night waa very cold and the
undertaker built a fire , sat beside it
and drank the whisky with his corpse ,
and then laid down on a pile of shav
ings and went to sleep , leaving John
sitting bolt upright on the bench. As
the night waned , the fire wont out ,
aud John got cold and and colder , un
til at length ho fell over on the floor
ard soon froze stiff , a "stiff" sure
enough , this time.
Byrne was aavod by the liquor ho
had taken and by his bed of shavings ,
and when he aTOke and found John
dead again he evinced no surprise ,
but coolly proceeded with the work
where he had loft off the day before ,
John was nailed up and "planted" in
good style , and he received hia well
earned S35 Mr. Knott vouches for
the truth of this story , which wo re
gard aa equal to some of Mark Train's
Balcombe vs. Hitchcock.
To the Editor of TUB BEE :
P.W. Hitchcock undoubtedly thinks
he has annihilated me with his column
of attempted sarcasm in yesterday's
Republican , and as it fa a low pot
house kiud of sarcasm , such as gen
erally emanates from loafers , I shall
not answer it.
As to my statement of his political
record , in TriE BEE , seven weeks ago ,
he has but ONE denial to make , and
that Is in the following verj carefully
worded extract from his letter :
"HeB3lcorabesay3 ( ) that'in 18601
bolted the republican candidate and
supported the democratic ( Johnson ,
candidate for congress. This I admit
is important , if true. The trouble with
Mr. Balcombe ia , it is not true. I
supported the regular republican tick
et in I860.
Now , IF this be true that Hitch
cock slyly slipped into the ballot box
a ticket with Marquette's and Taffe'a
names on it that year , both parties
were deceived that much , for neither
had any reason to suppose that he did ,
on the contrary it was generally as
serted in Washington thit he was a
supporter of traitor Johnson's admin
istration , that fur that reason ho had
more influence with the same , even
after he was out of congress than Sen
ator Thayer and Congressman Taffe ,
the silting members , who denounced
traitor Johnson ; and , finally , receive : !
the appointment of surveyor general
as a reward for his support of Jojn-
son. It was also understood and gen
erally asserted by both parties in this
state , at that timo. lint Hitchcock
was a Johnson follower AND HE DID
KGT DENY IT.
It is possible ttut ho allowed the
republican party to denounce him as a
traitor , and the democratic party to
claim him as an accession , and at the
same time to cast his vote for Marquette -
quetto and Taffe , instead of Paddock
and Morton , so that at this distance
off he could say that he supported the
former if it was for his interest to dose
so , if he did thus ho is welcome to
all the credit duo him for such cow
One word peraonal and I am done ,
Mr. Hitchcock ays in yeatorday'u
"I ho belieVa that he , ( Balcombe ) ,
was lately a deputy tJnited States
Marshal for Wyoming Territory , and
retired therefrom with CERTAIX OK-
HAVORY OFFICIAL ODORS HAWdlXG
If Mr. Hitchcock intends to insinu
ate or assort that I was guilty of any
dishonorable or corrupt actaaa deputy
United States marshal , I DENOUNCE
HIM AS A WICKED LIAR He knOWS
what he ihfondsd to insinuate or as
sert , and the public can draw i's own
conclusion from a careful reading of !
what he bus said as to his intcuf. :
