A. Fatal Runaway on the Bellevue -
A .Lively Daeli Dawn the
Struct Hill ,
A fearful accident , which will prob
ably rooult fatally to ono of the suf
ferers , occurred yeatcrday afternoon
at 2 o'clock , on the Bellevue road ,
near the farm of Mr. E. P. Storrs ,
some eight milcE oouth of this city.
It appears that Mr. J. Vickonbonr ,
lioad jeweler for the firm of Edholm
& Erickson , had gone out with his
family and a few friends for a drive.
There were in the party , baside thu
[ gentlemen , two or throe ladies and
Bovoral children , occupying a spring
wagon. When near the scone of the
accident , the horses wcro driven up tea
a foiioo corner , while the inon wont
into the field to look at soinn colts.
VVhilo they were fjono the horses took
fright at something and ran away ,
taking u course down hill. Every ono
in thb wagon was thrown out , but
none badly injured except Mro. Vick-
onborg and n little child of Mr. Aug.
Nelson. The former was ontunglod
in Dorao way in the lines , dragged a
considerable distance , and finally left
insensible at the roadside. The team
ran about a quarter of a mile before
they were stopped , and smashed the
ffagon all to pieces. Mrs. Y. was
picked up in an unconscious
state and carried to a house near
by , whore a physician was summoned
from Bollovuo. All efforts to restore
her to consciousness were unavailing
and she was brought into this city
about 5 o'clock and local medical aid
secured. It is foarodihather injuries ,
which are mostly internal , will provo
fatal as aho had not been resuscitated
up to the latest accounts last night.
The injuries to the child are not
thought to bo very serious.
About four o'clock it ) the afternoon ,
yesterday , a horse driven by Mr. P.
P. Shelby , ran away from the vicinity
of the jail on Hiirnoy street. Ho
came out on Farnam on the north side
of the enclosure and ran down the
Farnam street hill nt the top of his
speed , narrowly missing the destruc
tion of a small boy who was on the
route taken. At Fourteenth street
the horse turned to the south and
drew in at the door of tlio McShano
barn on llarnoy street , where ho was
secured. No damage was done ex
cept the breaking of the bridle worn
by the nnimnl.

The Union Pacific Nine Gts
& way With the Kansas
City Club ,
The Finest Game of the Season
Dog Turns tlio Tldo-
The Kansas City Stars came , they
saw , but they did not conquer. The
most exciting game of base ball of
the season , thus far , and in fact the
most closely contested game over
played in Omaha , was played on Sat
urday between the Union Pacific's and
the Stars of , Kansas City. It haying
been rumored in base ball circles for
several days past that the Stars were
"a way up" club , every ono was on
the "qui vivo" to witness the aamo.
There were about ton hundred per
sons on the grounds. The grand
stand was filled to its utmost capaci
ty , besides a long line of carriages on
the north and west sides of the
The Stars arrived on the ground
shortly after two o'clock and preiont-
ed a fine appearance in white flannel
suits with red stockings and bolts.
Tlio game was called at three o'clock
with the U. P.'s to b. t Burt Dorr ,
who pitches the "grapo vino" for the
U. P.'s , sucooodedin making the firat
run for the Union Pacific's. The
Stars thou took tholr plnco at the
block witli the avowed intention "to
do or dye , " and succeeded in doing to
the amount of ono score , msdo by Mr.
Hutchineon , the gentlemanly pitcher
of the Kansas City club. In the sue *
ceoding two innings the U. P. boys
got in two moro aores , while the K.
C. failed to get thcro. Ono of the
Ecores of the U , P. , niado in the second
end inning by Dwyer , was given him
by a very intelligent U. P. dotr who
seized the ball in his mouth ( after it
had been thrown wild fro-n second to
first base ) and made a dual ) for the
carriage gate Thu first baiumnn ,
however , overtook him and recaptured
th < bull.
In tin ) fourth innings Diryor an'd
Holland went out on baau.i , and Hart
on ti i\f \ ,
In the fifth inning Dorr inadu an
other run , which was the lust score
imdo by the U. P.'s , the gnrao now
standing to 1 in favor ot Omaha.
It continued so until the last half of
the ninth innings , when llouso madii
a long fly into left field , nnd succeeded
in bringing Hog era aa well as himself
to the home phito. The enthusiasm
was now at fever heat , us the core
stood U. P. 4 and 1C 0. U , with but
ono nun out ( Hutohinson having gone
out on a foul )
At this stage of the game Air. Dorr ,
the U. P. pitcher , showed himiolf to
the best advantage , for the two sue
cooding batters , Furlong and Ken
nedy sawed out at the bat , this gave
the Union Pacifies the game by the
small score of 4 to 3. A great deal of
dissatisfaction was expressed at
the umpiring of J. J. Philbin , and
in the caseof Dvryor running to 1st ,
Mr , Philbin decided that ho was safu
on 1st , while the crowd shouti'd
"oull" "outl" "out ! " from all parts
of the grand Htand , Mr. llutchiuson
gained the sympathy of the on tire an-
dianoo , by motioning them to bo quiet
andllotthe Umpire's decision stand. _
Tlio reporter called on the captain
of the Stars at thu Canfiold llouno
where they were stopping for the
purpose of ascertaining now they felt
toward the rulings of Mr. Philbin , In
the conversation Mr. llutchinaon said
that while ho thought the rulings
were wrong on several occasions , yet
ho thought that Mr. Philbln'a inten
tion wiis to do both aides justice.
The ruportcr stated on behalf
of the U. P.'rf nine that it was to bo
rcgruttcd that any dissatisfaction
should bo felt by the Kansas City
men. Mr. Uu'chinspu n-iaurod him
that there was no dissatisfaction on
their part , whatever , but said that
thuy were a little unfortunate first by
the dog running oft" with the ball and
next by ono or two decisions of the
umpire which ( although against thnm )
ho though woio given as Mr. Philbin
thought wore just.

are invited to attend.
The death of Justin Sweeney ,
though expected for some time , will
thrill with sorrow the many friends
and neighbors of Mr. and Mrs.
Sweeney. The relentless hand of
death has now secured the third vic
tim from the family. In the two
former , that of Johnny and Mary , as
in thu instance , the children had
reached the threshold of mauhoodand
womanhood. Their character and
lives were so good nnd true that a
earner of honor and usefulness in th"ir
hutublu spheres Doomed certain , and
.their paronta' hearts were filled with
naught but happiness. But heaven
willed otherwise. Mary was first
chosen , to bo followed at an interval
of loss than three years by Johnny ,
who was beloved oy nil acquaintances.
This was about a year ago. The
doubly boi oft parotitu were then crazed
with grief , from which they had
scaicoly recovered when Justin wai
called. This last alllictiou can add
little to the gloom already surround
ing the family heaithstonu , which the
hope of reunion 'in the Great Euro-
after alone can penetrate. The sym
pathy of all will go out to thorn in
tbeir terrible aflliation.

A Youug Swiss Boy Loses His
Life in Cut-off Lake.
Another Coroucr'n Inquest ou tlio
Each day of late has brought its
quota of death and disaster and yes
terday was no exception. The victim
on this occasion w.is Anton Hauvor , a
native of Switzerland , who has been in
America about a month and in Omana
about two weeks. Ho was about 21
years of ago and had neither kith nor
kin in this country , although his fam
ily are said to bo quite well to do.
Hauver had found employment at
the smelting works , and was working
this week on the night shift. Ho
boarded at the corner of Ninth and
Capitol avenue , and his effects , left
there , are said to include quito a tine
Yesterday ho wont with two com
panions for a nwiui in ono ot the small
lakes on the river bottom , about three-
quarters of a milo north of the pump
house. The throe went in the water ,
Hauror being rather a poor swimmer ,
and had been in about twenty minutes
when Hauver cried out to his com
panions , who saw that ho was ubout
to sink , and ono of thorn went to his
rescue. Ho grasped him by the hair
of his head as ho was going down , and
Hauvor , as is usual with drowning
men , seized his would-be rescuer by
the wrist , both sinking together. Thu
latter succeeded in freeing himself
and ame to the surface and made his
escape to land , but the unfortunate
SWIB * had aunk to rise no moro.
Corner Jacobs was notified by tele
phone and went down to the scene of
the occurrence about 5 o'clock. Ho
found a crowd gathered and a search
for the body going on. A man
known as "Indian Jack" was out on
the surface of the lake with his wife
in a dug-put , fooling with his pole for
the remains. At length ho was suc
cessful , and plunging into the lake
brought the body to the surface.
A jury was impanollod on the spot
and brought in a verdict in pccordanco
with the facts. The body was taken
to the coroner's rooms and will pro
bably bo buried at the county'u es
The la o referred to is very small
and the boys say that the water a lit
tle ways below the surface is cold as
ice , it being probably fed by springs
It in probable that young Hauvor got
the cramps and was unable to help
himself at all , as he was found a few
feet from the shore , arid might other
wise have helped himself out by walk
ing on the bottom or in seine way.

A Rumored Strike on the Wnbasu ,
Donlod by the Olilclnls.
The Chicago Times says ; "It has
been romored in railroad circles for
some days past that a strike was im
minent all along the line of the Wabash -
bash road among the running hands.
The following from a Kansas City pa
per of the 20th inst. , referring to the
matter , will bo read with interest :
'Ever since the now management
took hold of the Wabash a npirit uf
economy bus prevailed , and various
Bchoinos have been adopted in all the
departments for the purpose of cut
ting down expenses. While no open
meeting haa resulted Imretoforo ,
thuro has been a heap of prumblmg ,
which has been liable to break out
into op en warfare at any time. For
some sis months past the road bus
been holding back more and more of
Hie men's wages , until the last pay
day , | July eleventh , two months ,
and eleven days was retained , the
men recaiving only their April pay.
Another cause of dissatisfaction among
the running hands was the change of
system of paying them. Formerly
they wcro paid by the month , but this
has been changed to the mileage sys
tem , whereby the men receive pay
only for the actual number of miles
run. A reporter started out , yester
day , to run the rumor down , but found
the Wabash employes very reticent on
tlio subject. They either did not
know or did not want to tell anything
about tlio rumor. Finally , however , a
brakomrm wai found who talked on
the subject. Ho naid ho had just com o
from a star chamber session of run
ning hands , where it was decided
that the men should strike this morn
ing at ( i o'clock for back pay nnd a re
turn to the old per diem system of re
muneration. Ho claimed that men
who formerly made from $45 to SCO
