An Omuhn Man Comes to the Front
With iv Curious OHor.
A HBK reporter yusterJay learned of
very patriotic proposition which him
boon Hindu by a woll-knowii citi/.on t
U. S. Mttralml Iluiiry , of the District
of Columbia. A tow days ago n lot
tur wns sent him offering
$100 tn bu given to tlio
poor of Washington City , for thu
privilege ) of hanging'Ouitcau on the
JlOth of Juno nnd also ollbniig to fur
nish the rope nnd other little etcete
ras required for nothing and pay his
own traveling expense * from Oinuliu
to Washington City and return.
A little inquiry developed the
fact that the report WHO true
and that the citizen who ninde
it is eminently tit to swing
the LToat-iiRHnssin into eternity , 'tie
in the well known shoemaker , Mr.
Edward Kulil , who works OH the east
side of Tenth street , l > otweon Farnam
and llarney.
Mr. Kulil is the descendant of n
family of hangmen , nil of whom have
boon public executioners in the old
country MIICO the year 1417. lie is
the seventh son of the seventh son of
the illustrious family nnd lias
had some experience himself
nt he business having hunp
his Inst two men twenty-five years
ago next June. Air. Kuhl's skill
nnd anciently derived right , o
the exorcise of the profession of break
ing the necks of villinns like Quitenu ,
should entitle his proposition to n re
spectful consideration. It is to be
hoped his oll'er will be accepted.

A Novel Machine.
Dr. L. llt Kendrick , whoso head
quartnrs are at the Omaha Merchants'
barn , on Eleventh htreot , between
llarney and Howard streets , has the
horse clipping machine that takes the
cake. A UKK reporter saw it work
yesterday , and it shaved a
horse oil'as clean as a mouse in
ono hour and twenty minutes , which
thu doctor says is thu average time in
which it will do the work right along.
It is the only machine- the kind over
brought to the city and certainly
works like a charm , the horse seeming
to rather enjoy the operation. f4-lw.

Tlio Grand Jury on the Hnm-
mor Cneu.
The District Court began busint'ts
oesterdny by thu ttial of a civil casuof
tlul Omaha Smelting Works Company
against S. C , Abbott nnd others. Thu
first jury in the box is composed of
very intelligent looking men and thu
case will doubtless bo justly disposed
of. It involves n sum of § 2,400 which
certain parties became indebted to the
smelting works company for.
Of course the greatest interest cen
tered in thu grand jury room , into
which a number of witnesses were nt
different times summoned and dig-
missed. The principal testimony ad
duced yesterday wis that given by
the men who weru present nt the
time of the homicide. Un to con
vening of "court at 2 o'clock ycatnr-
day none of the females' recently de
tained as witnesses had been examin
ed. It is probable that the investiga
tion will continue all of to-day nnd n
part of to-morrow.
The prisoners ut the county jail
waiting the action of thu grand jury
are the following :
T.4D. Scott , held on a charge of
perjury in the Garngan case ; L. Levi ,
held on a charge of grand larceny in
the copper stonlnig cases ; Martin
Kearney , held for arson in setting lire
tolioyd's packing houseMilton ; Schnf
er nnd .Inmei Kcba , hold for a high <
way robbery on Thirteenth street ;
Martin Grace , for burglary ; Charles
Wilson , for yrand larceny from Julius
ROBS ; L. Curtis , for housebreaking of
a liquor store. The case * of those
who have given bail to appear or are
to be present for indictment nnd who
are not incarcerated include Charles
Kostors , held on charge of the mur
der of Hammer , and Henry Siert ,
charged with violatii g the Slocumb
