still In session yesterday , but did little ol

matters of individual concern.
A special streetcar train was put on
yesterday , for the benefit of those w
were enxious to get to and from the court
houaa from the Ugden house , without get
ting drenched by the rain.

out Its proceedings for Its delight If noth

weeks of nightly meetings.

There are some features in the late
inaugural of Mayor Uowman whicl
naturally excite some comment. Ono
ia the remarkable absence of any utterance
toranco regarding the enforcement o
ordinances and the bettor preserving
of law and order. Ho recommends
an increase in the pay of policemen ,
but lias not ono word to say nbout the
increase in their clticiency and excou
tion of law ,
Another feature which naturally ex
cites comment is the boorish praise
given to the railways , nnd the proud
shoffinir of the amount of taxes paid
by them. Nearly one-fourth of the
inaugural is devoted to n free pun"of
the railways , and what they have done
for this city.
Another interesting feature is the
exhibit of the assessments made , show
ing that in 187 < i the total of real and
personal property was SO IH HU ; ,
while in 1881 it had shrunk to $2-
32'.i,250. ' , lias not the city grown any
in five years f Have not the railroads ,
ivhifih hold so much property hero , and
ivhoso payment of taxes is BO paraded ,
iwellcd the assessed valuation any ?
Why is not the growth in the city in
Heated in nn increased assessed valu
ition rather than a shrinkage ? This
itrnnpco slate of things is lightly passed
> vcr by the inaugural , the only
lomments on the facts being that
'they may proyo of some interest as a
[ uido to public duty in the matter. "
Chora is some disappointment felt
hat some moro direct words were not
[ ivcn concerning so important a foa-
uro ot the financial condition.
The organ which supported Mayor
Jowinan must feel a littln disappoint-
d over the kindly words which lie
; ave in his inaugural to the city im-
irovomcnts , for which the organ so
inmorcifully thumped the old council ,
nd also the kindly words which ho
.as for tho1 poiico fund , including a
iroposcd raise of salaries , which force
ho organ pronounced as corrupt time
nd again. The organ must have for-
otton the charges it brought against
JhiofjFiohl , for when Mayor JJowman
ccommomh that the chief's salary
hould bo raised to 81,000 , the organ
ironounces the suggestion a sound
no and endorses the whole inaugural
n like manner.
They Swept the Board ,
As the time for the municipal oloc-
ion in Omaha approaches , the Herald
nd Republican , of that city , who
iavo not now nnd never had any con-
option of the rights of laboring men ,
nd who , during the late unpleasant-
icss , took every opportunity to force
hem to bow to capital by unceasingly
irging property owners and the state
lilitia to hold the "degraded
rrotches" in the lowest depths , are
low in a tnrriblo state of fear that the
lonost bono and sinew of that city
ssort their rights at the pells. Every
isuo of these journals is teeming with
ditorial matter calling on their brass-
ollar friends to uao their utmost on-
[ favors to keep the "yellow dogs nnd
lumnod rascals" from capturing .tho
ity offices. While pounding the poor
nen ever the head in the merciless
fianner they did a few weeks since ,
hey lost sight of the fact that every
nn of these laborers nnd their friends
af whom there are many among the
roll-to-do classes of .Omnha ) , hadpro-
iaoly the same right , nt the polls an
hey did , and now that they have been
ompolhd to throw down their hand
n the labor question , as regards ro-
lunorativo wages , it ( lashes most
ividly across their benighted brains
hat the game is not got concluded
nd the enemy is about to rake in the
list ppt and all the political capital of
ho city of Omaha.

THE MYSTERY UNSOLVED
No Corpse Yet Discovered to
Account for the Cry of
Murder at the Flo-
There seems to be no satisfactory
explanation discovered yet to account
' .or the mysterious doings in the
rooms on Houston street , ai. account
of which was given in yesterday's
BKK. The neighbors and others are
confident that there was some bloody
deed committed , and seem determined
that the corpse of a woman is to bo
found concealed somewhere in the
woods , but as yet no such ghastly
spectacle has been brought to light ,
and no now evidence secured. Be
sides the broken vial and the snide
seal ring found at thu spot , there has
boon picked up seventy-five cents in
silver , which wns apparently dropped
by Bonio ono of the parties concerned
the mysterious affair. The evidence
thus far obtainrd is that two men and
a woman rode thither ; that the
men were boating the woman ; that
shots were heard ; that screams and
outcries of murder were heard , and
: hat the men returned alone ; but as
; o who the parties were or what they
really did no ono seems to know.
Among many the impression pre
vails that the whole wns H bawdy rower
or n drunken trip , in which perhaps n
revolver wns fired , frightening the
lorso and causing a spill-out. The
dctcctivo talent of the policoforco _ lias
an excellent chance to show itself-
Tom Prmdlo Is Keeping- Shady as the
Result of His Afternoon Rlclo.
The young man concerned in the
runaway accident on Sunday , in which
us companion , n young woman , wns
njurcd and the rig smashed , still
ccops out of the road of the officers.
Yein further information it appears
hat his name is Tom Prindlo and that
10 is a plasterer by trade , The horse
ind buggy belonged to Holland &
SVaijnor's livery stable and was lot to
tim for the purpose of a two-hours'
ride in the country , under the pro-
eiiao of collecting some money due
lim. That time having moro than
> assod , the proprietors became uneasy
ind in looking after the young man ,
Vfr. Holland spied him just driving up
n front of the St. .Too house , in company -
pany with a girl. Ho had just order-
ad beer for the two when Mr. Holland
topped up and , taking the horse by
he head , told the young man ho had
Irivon long enough. The young fol-
ow assured him ho was just going to
.rivo to the stable , and Mr. Holland
rood his hold. Instead of going to
ho stable ho whipped the horse
ilmost into a run and skipped out
round the corner. In a few minutes
Ir. Holland gave chase on horseback ,
) ut was utmblo to overtake him. The
ext ho hoard of the rig was when a
oy brought the horse back to the
nd told him that the buggy had been
mashed , the girl had some ribs
arpkcn. and tha young man had
kipped. In company with a poiico
) fficer Mr. Holland tracked the
rounp man to the St. .Too 1 ouso , and
vould soon have had him , but the
poung fellow was' too slick , and by
etting himself down from an upper
irindow escaped , and has not reported
inco. The horse was badly injured
ind the buggy smashed , so that the
lamngd is estimated as reaching fully
5200 , to say nothing of the fact that
ho girl is so badly hurt as to require
urgical and medical treatment. It
vas a wild Sunday afternoon ride ,
ind the young man is not probably
uixious to face the consequences.

rho Plain Instruction Under Which
Marshal Jackson Is Expected
The ordinance defining the duties
of the city officers , declares that it
shall bo the duty of the city marshal :
To cause to bo enforced within the
city , the laws of the state and the or
dinances of the city , in relation to
iconsos and traffic in intoxicating
iquors , the suppression of gambling
louses and houses of ill-fame and
In addition to this the city conn
cil has lately passed the following :
Resolved , That the mayor and
marshal bo , and they are hereby in
structed to enforce rigidly and iiu
partially the ordinance defining mis
doncanor and fixing punishment ;
also the ordinance concerning the
closing of saloons and tippling houses.
As in well known the city ordinance
referred to provides that saloons shall
close at 11 o'clock at night nnd shall
keep closed on Sunday. The poiico
have reported a number of violations
of the 11 0'elook ordinance , and have
also reported thirty-threo saloons ns
open last Sunday , and the names have
boon inado public in TUB BIE. : Whul
does the marshal propose to do aboul
It is not the province of ofilcora to
decide whether the ordinances are
good , bad or indifforont. There was
it wonderful alacrity shown in onfor
oing the ordinance driving the wagons

A Coloroa Policeman
Thu proposed ordinance taking the
power of appointing a park policcmai
out o ! thu hands of the mayor has
been passed by the council. The now
ordinance provides that the counci
may employ two men to work in the
parka at $40 per month , said men to
have power to preserve order iu the
parka. It is stated that Mayor Bow
man promised the colored folks to ap
point one of their number aa a police
man , and that ho sought to fulfill thii
promise by making Charles Warner t
park policeman. Some of the counci !
think that this is a sort of evasion ,
and that ho should make his promise
good by appointing n colored man or
the regular forco. The mayor's powei
to appoint n park policeman boinj
taken nway , it remains to ba sceti
what ho will do. The council witl
probably employ Walstein and Jack
son , It appears that each of the par
ties striving for power nt the last
election promised the colored folks
to have ono of their number appoint
ed on the regular police force
in case of success. After Mayor
Bowman was elected the colored folks
sent him a petition asking for the ap
pointment of Adam Topert upon the
force. Instead of doing so , the ap
pointment of Warner as park police
man was made , and now the council
lias knocked that all over.
