A WAEM INTIMACY.
Omaha and Council Blufis Sud
denly Conceive a Great
Friendship for Each
Omaha Will Cross the River
The scene at the corner of Harnoy
and Fifteenth streets at 4 o'clockMon61
day was an cxhtlirating ono. For
blocks on either side the streets were
crowded with sleighs and prancing
teams , while the music of the Ninth
infantry band and Olker's band of
Council Bluffa made the air ring with
melody. The occasion was the royal
good time being enjoyed by the visi
tors from Council Bltiffi and their
hosts of this city.
Messrs. D. T. Mount , Marsh Ken-
nird , W. A. Sharp and J. S. McUor-
mick had exerted themselves to show
the guests what Omaha hospitality is
the Withnell Houte was thrown
wide open to all , while committees on
the street met each advancing pirty
and invited them in for rest and re-
The ladies wore sumptuously enter-
tiincd in the elegant parlors on the
s icond floor , where , notwithstanding
the brief notice given , a collation of
oysters , turkey , salads , jelliec , cakes
aid every other delicacy was served
the dlnlnq-room force. The par
lors were crowded with ladles repre-
the best society in Council
, who did ample justice to the
liberality of their hocta.
The male visitors were entertained
down nlElrBj where a charming lunch ,
arranged in superb alyle , was prepared
under the superintendence of Mr.
Spsnca Stoverwhoso beaming face
welcomed the guests , and whoso active
hsnda dispensed liquid refreshments
and Raleigh's favorilea across the wal-
mt counter Mayor James , of
jrtnncil Jiluffs , Mayor Chase , of
Omaha , and lesser dignitaries
from both cities wore distinguished
amonij the delighted and harmonious
crowd. About 5 o'clock the visitors ,
after a friendly muaicil contest be-
the two bands , each playing
alternately , and after driving about
the principal streets , left for home.
In referring to their trip the Coun
cil Bluffs Nonpareil of yesterday says :
'It is ncodlces to say that young and
old , grave and gay wore last night en
thusiastic in the praise both of the re-
ceptlon and hospitality received In
our neighboring city , and the visit
will pass int-i the history of the two
cities , not only as a remarkable gath-
ring , but one M herein rivalry in busi
ness was forgotten , and in its stead an
overflow of gotd feeling chimed the
hour und will over hold a place among
treasured memories of 1F81.
The three hundred or more
ladies and gentlemen who partici
pated ill 'ong remember the royal
mnner in which they wore received
nnd treated by the generous-hearted
find enterprising citizens of our 'sin-
twister. ' The reception given the
party in the parlors of the Withnell
llouco WAS eomothing altogether un
expected , bat was nevertheless highly
appreciated. All wo can say to. the
citizens of Omaha IB , como over again
and test the hospitalities of Council
Bluflj , and just let us know an hour
or two before you come. "
The invitation thus extended will
bo accepted , for determined
to sliotr Council Bltiffi that Omaha
can't bo outdone in display any more
than in hospitality , the people of this
city will return the friendly call.
Everybody is invited to participate in
this sleigh rida to Council Bluffs who
can do souid especially the ladies.
The party will rendezvous at the cor
ner of Fourteenth and Farnham
at 10 p" , in. , sharp , to-morrow ( Wed <

The breaking up of the Iowa pool

in New York City , that it was a matter
of a short time only. It might be in
a few months , and perhaps weeks.

question of putting money into the
new bridge over thorivor at this point ,

lest it should bo rcrjti red at an early
day , for it is known that the
incapacity of the Union Pacific
bridge to accommodate many
new trains in addition to those uf the
proprietor is all that has kept tbo
eastern roads out of Nebraska for this
long time. The fact that several of
the stations included in the Alton list ,
for instance : St. Louis , Lafayette , Ind. ,
Toledo , 0. , etc. , are local stations on
the Wabash , make It well nigh impos
sible for the Wabash to decline taking
up the gauntlet thm thrown down.
They must of necessity moot the rate ,

He thought the Wabash , was waiting
to see what the pool lines would do ,
as it was really they whowero chiefly In-
than usual , notwithstanding the cut
made by the Alton. Very few Indi
anapolis passengers would go that way
as it required three days to reach In-
dirnapolis and other points east by
the Alton , while the Wabash reached
tlio same points in ono day. The ex
tra expenses of sleeping cars , board ,
time , etc. , would deter business men
from taking the cheap route although
there was over $7 difference.

The Fire Which Cleaned Out
Julius Treitschke's Stock
About ten o'clock last night an
alarm of fire was sounded from box
21 , No. 3 engine house. Those wbo
hurried to the spot saw a dense col
umn of smoke ascending through the
mocn lit air , proceeding from Bar
ker's new block , in the lower story of
which is situated Julius Treitachko's
grocery store and saloon.
The fire was first discovered by
John Brechbnller , the bartender , and
a couple men who were playing pool
in the sample room. Their attention
was attracted by a crackling noise in
the rear of the building and by the
sight of smoke issuing through the
doorway , between the saloon and gro
cery store , both of which are situated
upon the first floor of the block. Ona
of them immediately ran up the alley [
way to the engine house and gave the
alarm , which was responded to by the

made. The plate glass windows were
smashed in and several streams of water
turned on the burning portion of
the building. The smoke poured
forth in dense volumes , and for a time
it looked as if the block was dooriled ;
but the strenuous efforts of the boys
were fortunately successful , and in
half an hour's time the fire was en
