Ho Has Some Moro Coots to Settle.
Tbo replevin salt Instituted by the
Bornstoin'a against Constable Dutch-
or , who attempted to collect the costs
aorued In the police court n short
time since , when Bernstein endeav
ored to bulldoze two Ruealans and got
left , came np Monday afternoon In
Justica Wright's court. The justice
had callid a jury , but after looking U
over Oharlus II. llodiok , the attorney
for Dutchor , concluded to try the case
Without ono. The Introduction of
evidence by Bornatoin wna to show
that ho owned nothing himself , and
that his wife had always dona the
burinoss and had accumulated all the
lll-gotton fpinu the twain possess.
The horse and buggy levied upon by
thoconattblo waa tlieunbjoct matter of
the case , and Mrs. liornotoin aworj
that It was hers. Tn order to substan
tiate til's ' fnct she offered several checks
In evidence which oho said she had
paid for kooplng nt a livery ntablo.
The signature to the chocks were dif
ferent , uud the signature to the ulli-
davit in replevin to support the cult
was wholly unlika uithorof the others.
It appeared thtvt the signature to thu
aflulavit , though In smaller writing
than thu body of the instrument , It
was tlio identical handwriting. When
Hadlok questioned on thla point
Bernstein's attorney admitted thut ho
hud signed the name , but had
done ao at the request of the woman
herself. An It is absolutely necessary
under the law that the allidavH shall
bo made by the person bringing the
replevin suit , of course the o.uo foil
flit , at this juuotur9 , ! " < Hodick
moved that tha case bo dismissed , nnd
the justice uuld that ho.vrould have to
dcf so. Colonel Smytho objected ,
however , nnd aakod time'to bring in
EOino authorities , nnd ho was linally
given until Saturday to do so. The
case was virtually Bottled nnd Bern
stein in addition to iho $50 costs
in the poltoa court will , , have
ntiothor bill of nearly equal magpitudo
to liquidate. During the progress of
the cute Mynday his -woazon and dis
torted face was wreathed in the near
est semblance ofa smile lt , nould as
sume ' , and ho appeared to think fhat
ih'o course of justice would clog1 up for
once and ilovv , ao to apeak , his way ,
but it did not. Ho even expressed
himself to the effwit that ho was uot
in Judge Bonoko'i court than , and ho
would have thinc diiloront. The only
dleslmularity appa'ren was a fow'dollara
difference In the amount of the costs
which ' ho will have to pay. The quick
er this'mlsorablo.villalnand shark quits
his nefarious traflbinrr in this city , the
bettor it will bo tor him and his hard
outfit. '

An Interesting Otveo lu Judge Chad-
wlck'a Court.
If over there was a city in which the
habeas corpus privilege waa ucod to
ts utmost , that city is Omaha , nnd
casua hero are of so frequent oc3ur-
ronco that it would nbzolutoly startle
those buck cait , who are accustomed
to resort to thin final privilege , only
upon the most extreme occasions.
The county court'ia the most frequent
quont eci'iio of habeas corpus suits in
Douglas county , and yes orjai
nt 2 o'clock n very intoroitmg caeo
was called thero.
This ouit was brought by n mother
to recover her baby. The circum
stances are rather peculiar , ns it op-
pears that the child was an illegiti
mate ono and was born nomothlnc ;
ovora year ago , its father boiug n
well known merchant of this city.
After the birth of the child the
father nnd mother conoplrod to have
the child loft upon its father's door
otopa , with the understanding that ho
ahould take it up , return it to its
mother as n waif and pay ho < - for its
support and thus avoid nil pub
licity ao to the true inwardness
of the buaincLB , no pcoplo would then
think that It was n matter of charity
ail round , It acorns that the father
failed to keep his part of the contract
and the child was lot out to a farmer
residing not far from Omaha , who
took it into his family , and both ho
and his wife became warmly attached
to it , Recently the mother , who bo-
same anxious to once moro hold her
own baby in her arms , wont to the
farmer and told the story of the child's
maternity , and neked that it bo returned -
turned to her. This the farmer re
fused to do , and consequently tha suit
wai brought which c > imo up in the
county court yesterday.

- in this city yesterday by announce
ment of the failure of L. M. Woods &
Co , , of Stroraeburg , Polk county ,
This firm kept a general merchandise
and hardware store , nnd this
morning made an assignment for
the benefit of all their creditors ,
giving no ono preference. It seems
< that they have been behind on their
accounts for the past eight months ,
and their creditors have been giving
them extenbions with the hope of
working them through , but it waa fin
ally found impossible ) and accordingly
they suspended. They nnaigned as
the cause of their failure the poor col
lections they made , but it is probable
that the close market now prevailing
. is what killed them. Their liabilities
jr are about $7,000 , and the assets of the
firm are estimated nt about $4,000.

Prospect of the Union Patiflo
Purchasing the Wabash ,
An Unbrolton Line From St.
Louis to the Pacific.
llobc Democrat
The groutost railroad sensation of
.ho day was sprung yoaturdny by n
yontlemun who hud just returned
rom Now.Yotk , nnd woo is familiar
with several of the Gould tyndicato.
llo stated that from what he hoard
n Now i'ork it was probable , and
oven moro than probable , that the
Union l\io fie will cither purchuao or
oaao the Wabaah , or tnako some sort
) f a tnvilio arrangement wheruby it
will work with the Wabaah an if the
.wo were ono.
"And practically they will bo ono
mad , " eaid the gentleman from Now
Ho continued : "Don't you eeo
Gonld has a great head ; ho know the
governor would call attention to thu
aw governing parallel roado , and
would insist that the law prevail tn
prevent ono corporation or set of
iflicera running two parallel lines
His ideas were right , and ho will at
ouoo proceed to toke hlmaulf out of
the Wabash presidency. "
The informant went on to say that ,
the governoi'a ideas didn't scare Mr
Gould much , but his principal
nmbltion was to secure for the
Union PaclDc alino to the
Northern lakes. The Northern
Pacific , going boldly westward into
the Union Pacific's territory , has
awakened the directors to the fact
that they are behind in getting an ou'
lot which nature alone can close.
Then the Chicago , Burlington and
Qaincy , which was fornmly con
controlled with a line to Hannibal and
Qnincy , las gone in a direction where
by they can draw from the Uninn
Pacifis'o triflb. The Southern Pacific
has worked its way to an owjturn
water outlet , and it is a fact that the
Union Pacific must positively got to
the lakes and to the Mississippi river
independent of any line , or they will
bo loft in the shade. The ro
porter's attention was called to
iho Wabash map in the cllicial
enldo It oiov75 ! u good line from
Omaha to Chicago and St. Louis , and
from Kansas Oity tn Chicago and S.
Louis , to say nothing of Hannibal
and other Mississippi river points.
The Union Pacific owns or controls
the Kansao Paclfio , which \7ill give it
a line to Kansas City. "
"But when will all this take plact ? "
aakod the reporter.
"Why , jttat ao noon na the arrange *
inonts can bo made. It Is just as vrel
for an . .uterprioing pnper ) ilo the
Globe Democrat to civo the first hint
as it la to let oomo eastern paper got
it first. It's my opinion thio move
will take placs within niuo months "
NEW YOKK , January 7 A dispatch
from St. Louis printed to-day said
that there was a plan for the Union
Pacific railroad to purchase or leaao
the Wabash lines , or to pdrfeot a
traffic arrangement whereby the two
systems would bo practically made
one. It seemn that the announcement
.0 this effect created something ( f a
lensatiau tn St. Louis. Mr. Washing-
ion E Connor aatd , when the dispatch
was shown to him this afternoon , that
the story was probably started by
plans under consideration to
perfect a practical combination
> f the interests of the Union
Prtc.fic , the Wabash , the Mis
souri Pacific , and the Hannibal & St.
Joseph.s There had been a disposi-
; lon to overbuild , and by combining
; hia tendency would bo checked. Two
paramount objects would bo gained
creator economy and greater facilities.
The idea of a combination was to pat
the roads on a moro economical basis ,
and re move dlsturbirg elements. The
Hannibal & St. Joseph had perhaps
been in a position where it could bo
worked for good or oyil. It would
prove a natural iocder in the method
proposed. The plant tended moro in
the direction of traffic arrangements
possibly than any other , but it would
bo premature to discuss the
subject In that bearing at
this time. Whatever combination
wan made , St. Louis would bo bone-
filed , becinse it was the natural headquarters -
quarters for the lines. Ever since
air. Gould has boon in control of the
eonthwostern system S ( . Louis has
been the most important center for the
roads. What defined the position of
the railroads most clearly was the pos-
eibility of thu Denver & Rio Grande
changing hands. It threatened to
build in n way to interfere with the
Union Pacific. In its anxiety to
build it exceeded the capacity of the
_ country. Had it Mopped it might
have baen in a different condition
' from what It was to-day , Mr.
Gould gave np the management of
the Union Pac fie three years ago , nnd
his holdings in it wore light. Re l. ,
ferring to a portion of the dispatch
which spoke of the attnmpts of other
lines to cut into the Union Pacific ,
' Mr. Connor said that nothing which
threatened it could work injury to
Mr. Gould's enterprises. Even if It
were to go out of existence no loss
would bo suffered by Mr. Gould'a
system. Tbo presidency of the \Va
bash had not been broached. Mr
Sidney Dillon , the president of tht
Union Pacific , said there was-no plan
fir hia road to lease or purchase the
Wabash. The Union Paclfio had run
nlng arrangements with Mr. Gonld'i
lines as well as others.
