A Bold Attack on the ( fault
The Plucky Pursuit by a Oour-
ageous Lady.
Minor Attacks frcru MidulRlit
Mrs Louis MjCoy , the wife of the
proprietor of the Giult house , near
tae now government depot , was the
heroine of a thrilling advontnro on
Monday morning between 2 and 3
o'clock. Mr. McCoy Is the old gov
ernment scout who lust year wont out
to Sidney and made the succtHsful
search for the remains ( if Mr. Aust ,
the Omaha butcher , who jumped from
the stage In a fit of insanity , wandered
off amid the sand hills and perished.
On Monday morning at the tlni'j
named Mrs. MaOoy hoard a noise in
tno bed room , which she thought was
ciUiod by the dog trying to jump
upon the bod. In trying to push the
dog elf she sat up in bed and saw a
man In the room , and at once dropped
to hia racket , which was probably to
go through the cntlro house , several
of the lodgers having recently boon
paid til.
She was afraid to awaken her hus
band lest ho should attack thu burg
lar and bo shot , oo she jumped up
herself and gave chase to tno intruder
who at once fled. She followed him
to the back door , which ho had un
looked but closed after him , and
then , being cornered , the follow
turned on her and fired. The shot
stunned her and she fell down on the
floor , npon which the thief made
good hla escape.
Mr. McCoy was awakened by this
time and learning the atato of aifiirs
ran out in pursuit of the burglar , but
stumbling over a chair OD the porch full
doirn ana his revolver was discharged ,
the ball grazing the underclothing
acrocs his stomach and narrowly
escaping the infliction of u fatal wound.
Mr. McCoy returned to his room
and , having drocsod , trucked the bur
glar for some distance in the snow ,
but finally gave up thn chaso. Thu
ouly things necured by the marauder
WAS n pair cf old pantu mid a pair of
non suspenders belonging to Mr.
McCoy , and thu moat interest
ing foaturca of the whole all'jlr
wuro the narrow escape of Mr. and
Mrs. McCoy from fatal injury and
the boldnenti oxhlbitod by the heroic
woman in following the fellow out of
the house , shu nt onu time actually
Imvli g his coat tnils in her grasp
Mrs McCoy thinks she could identity
thu man , who answered the descrip
tion of ono of the trio who made the
attempt on Baldwin & Oo./j / safe Sun
day morning.
Three other attempted burglaries
Irivo been reported silica our lait is-
a no. The Saratoga homo , the West-
urn hotel and the residonoo of Mr.
John Shelby In north Omaha , wore all
visited by thieves. In the former
they wont through thn roonu but xot
very little booty and In the latter
they broke open the front door but
got no further than that and only sue-
rccdcd in frightouing thu family.
The gang evidently means business
und the police ehouid enforce the law
against suspicions characters to its
fullodt oxtmit.

A Pen ioneil Printer Takes Sud
den Leave of Omaha ,
Ovfrcominfj Serious Wounds
and Giviug tbe Boyo thn
The readers of THE BKK will romom-
ior that about the middle of last No
vember a printer named Jatnea AI-
catt was attaelcod by a negro , at the
; ate of his boarding houao and
terribly beaten , hia jaw being
Broken and hia noeo nearly
eovorod from hia face. Alcott'a assail-
uic was never diacoverod but ho lay in
U. Joaoph'0 hospital for a long time ,
jolng ouppprtod ut the expense ) of the
typographical Union and finally com-
ng out fully recovered.
On Suturcl ly last Alcott received a
chock from the govurnment for hia
iiMininn and back pay , amounting to
$1,700 , dip3aiting all but $00 of the
amount in the Omaha Saving bank
and spending the $00.
Alcott was watched by aoveral of
ih frlonda , who were anxious that ho
ahuuld not bo allowed to squander the
L'ntiro amount for drink , which was
ilia well known failing. Yesterday
morning it was learned that ho had
driwn the balance out of the bank
nd disappeared from hia quarters at
the Eminott Ilouau. It was auppoaod
that ho had the money in cash on his
person , and a conplu ( f the boys fal
lowed him across the river to
neo if ho could 1)3 found. They
( iitcovfred him on board a train for
Chicago , having pii'.nhaeod i\ ticket
for St. Johnsburg , Vt. Uo claimrd
that ho had been diainhnrotcd by his
family on account of his dis
solute habits , and waa go
ing back to break the
will It is probable that ho will go

hardly ( It to travel with ao largo a

The Eu-lmgton and Eio Grande
Osnsolidation Indicated ,
A Collision in the Snow on the
Missouri Pacific.
The much mooted question of n
consolidation of the 0. , K & Q and
Burlington fc Mitaouri with the Denver -
vor & llto Orundu ia again brought before -
fore the public nnd thin time in a
ahapo more tangible thnn over. THE
BKK has , upon information almost
official , insisted from time to time
that thcso two roads would nt un early
day be merged together , thus giving
the Q. a through line to Salt lake
City , and that at that point a connec
tion would bo made with the Central
Pacific. The foot that the D. & II
Q. will lay a thiri rill from Salt Lake
to O den , and that the 0. P. will
at once begin runnniug its trains Into
the capital of the kingdom of
brigham allows that all preparations
are bolug in ado to oifsot the advantages
of the Oregon Short Line , which will
rnako the Union Pacific independent
of its old connection. The Central
Pacific fmnd it necessary to take
step * to bo equally free from dependence -
once on the U. P. , and no other route
afforded such an opportunity. Tnuro
is not a question as to the design of
tliu two great linea , and the coinplo-
tlon of the Oregon Short Line will ace
iti consummation already accom
plished. The proposed corsolidatiou
of the Union Pacific and Wabaah in-
tereats is in furthurauco of the plot
which will add another Pacific road to
the list , already large. A special dis
patch from Denver to the Chicago
Times Bays :
It is expected hero that the Bur
lington and Grande railroads will
soon ba consolidated. The straws tf
railroad ovontn are all blowing that
way. At thin moment General Man
ager Potter of the Chicago , Burling
ton & Qaiuoy , and General Manager
Dodge of thu Rio Grande , are on a
trip of inspection of the road which
is operated by the gentleman last
named. Recently Mr. J. B. Orraati ,
of Pueblo , the chief contractor ( f the
Rio Grande , introduced a bill in the
house of representatives amending
the act relating to corporations , so
that railroads operating under char-
Uraeecurodinadjolning states and ter
ritories inny have the right to merge
or consolidate , each retaining its orig
inal rights and franchises. The only
roads which are denied the right to
consolidate in this proposed bill are
those which run parallel and compote
with each other. Those things ore
significant. Mr. Potter does not
make trips cf inspection over road a h ,
which ho in not interested. The
duties of his office are so pressing that
ho has no time to mokq pleasure ex
cursions over foreign roads. It is rea
sonable , therefore , to suppose that
ha has some business object in joining
Mr. Dadgo in a rldo oVer the lines of
the Rio Graudo company. In intro
ducing the bill referred to , Mr. Or man
may have had no other object than
the general one of befriending the
railroad laws of the state , but there la
one reason why one may think that
the bill was prepared for u special ef
fect. Mr. Ormau ia well known as
ono of the richest railroad contractors
in the state. Ho has done more of
the construction work of the Rio
Grande than any two other contract
ors. His interests are largely with
the Rio Grande , and it is rumored
that he had some object in view other
than the bonofitting of the state. Un
der the existing laws the Rio Grande
could not ba merged into the Burlington -
lington if it wanted to. Legislation
was needed to put matters on a plane
whore unimpeded action could be had.
Under this bill the two roads could
consolidate , and each could still retain
all the rights and franchises which
had been granted to it when the com
pany was incorporated. It is said on
good authority that Gen. Palmer hns
given the Burlington permission to
name the directors who will bo elected
at the coming meotinc in Mivrh.
In the list of railroad accidents
published in THE BEE of Friday , the
breaking of an engine WAS mentioned
briefly. The Papillion Times shows
that the trouble wua much more seri
ous than was stated. The Times
saye :
"Owing to drifted unow in the cute ,
the Missouri Pacific passenger tralna
southward bound Wednesday night
wore aide-tracked and held here all
night , while those coming north were
delayed at Springfield. A work train
was put on and about 0 o'clock a. in ,
yesterday finished clearing the snow ,
and reported a clear track for the
trains waiting horo. It then backee
up to the big cut between her <
nnd Springfield , and stopper
fca do scino moro work. Th <
passenger train that had been 1
standing here all night , having u firo' '
right to the track started south , anc
as the engineer expected to find mori
or Iocs BUOW in the cut , ho put on i
full head of steam and dashed forware
at a lively rate to force a passage
Upon entering the cut the p&sseng :
collided with the work train. Botl
engines wore disabled , the cabooco r
the work train smashed into plcc.'i

A Remarkab.'y Successful and Pleee-
ing Entertainment.
The sticrod concert given at the
Tamer hall Sunday afternoon by
the Oinuha Musical Union orchestra ,
assisted by Kudolph Giwort , cornet
soloist , and Richard Kohl , solo bass
clarionotist , was n fine entertainment
in ovoty respect. The programme
consisted of twelve numbers , and em.
braced some of the best selections of
music. 'Tho piece , "Young America , "
which gives full play to the ability of
n Drnctiat , waa admirably rendered
by G jtvort. Ia response to an encore -
core ho g ve a very good selection.
Thu technique nnd range possessed by
Mr. Gowort gives him u place very
near the celebrated Levy and Ar-
The selection fromtho | Pirates of
Penzance , arranged by Profeaaor Hoff
man , the director , was well rendered.
The first number for Mr. K hl was n
selection from Donlzetto for the bass
clartonetto and wni well executed by
that gentleman This instrument is n
comparatively now ono in orchestras
and adds much to the volume of mel
ody , it having a heavy sonorous sound
which gives emphasis to the rendition
of the music. Mr. Kohl well under
stands its unu , as appeared from his
performance yesterday. The duett
tor cornet and bias clarlonotto
wan exceedingly well rendered by
the two gentlemen and the
orchestral accompaniment was also
fine. The foreign , nrtis B were on-
thushaticilly applaudtd audrosnondcn
a good humored manner. No. 12
of the programme , a march entitled
"A Greeting to Omaha , " composed by
Prof. H ( ti'jian , was artistically ren
dered and evinced a correct knowledge
ot mualo by the union and ability on
the part of the profeeuor. The maich
was BO loudly applauded that it was
repeated , which closed the entertain-
mont. Tnoso concerts have become
qnito an event in musical circles nnd
are of a high standard of excellence.
A. good house listened to the concert
yesterday nnd left , moro than ( mtittijd.
Too much credit cannot be given to
Mr. Julius Meyer , the manager of the
union , and Prof. Hoffman , the direc
tor , for their efforts to famish the
music loving portion of Omaha with
these rtilnod and elegant concerts.

The Now Company Preparing to
Dairy Out Their Agreement.
And to Supply Consumers by
Next December.
Negotiation ! fjr tlin ParoUnsi of
the frfseut Wfiru
A Talk With Manayor Glbba
Manager Gibbs and Mr. Jackson ,
agnnt of the United GAS Im-
prorement Company of Philadelphia ,
arrived yesterday in Omaha and are
guests at the Millard. The gis com
pany to which the right to erect works
in this city or to acquire them
by purchase WAS given , is cow
in negotiation with the officers
of . the present gas company
for the purchase of their works. An
offer to this end waa made yesterday
and is now being considered. In case
it Is accepted the United Gat
Improvement company will become
proprietors of the existing gas works
and will enter into agreement with
the city to t ? furnish gas to the city
and consumers at the rates specified
in the late ordinance. Should the
Nebraska Gis Light company ro'iuo
to sellmains will at once be putchasod
and preparations acivuly bouuu for
the immediate erection of now works.
In conversation last evening with a *
reporter of THE BEE , Manager Gibbi
said , "Wo have inndo a liberal ofFar
to Mr. Murphy , and feel aatUGed thut
ho will see that iv is to his advanta ute
to accept it. There seems to have
been an impression in some quarters i
that the United Uis Improvement
company had something to coll. Wo
have nothing to sell but gond and
cheap gap , which wo can manificture
under our patents at a profit , and
furnish to the citizens of Omaha , at
about half the price they are now
paying. Wo made every tffort to pur
chase the present worka before secur
ing our ordinance. Having sicurod it
o shall certainly , before the
oar is out manufacture and vend
as in thii city at the
a'.es wo have agreed upon with the
ty council We propose to do thin
urael ois. Wo have no pitonts or
ights to sell. To save time and
rouble wo would like to purchuao the
iroiont worka , but if the gentlemen
refer to retain their plant we shall
mincdlataly begin the croc'ion ' of
ulldings and prepare for the laying
f pipes. With no wish to destroy
ho value of their property wo have
mrdo the present company what wo
; onsider a generous offer fur their
> Iant and ore only awaiting the ru-
ult of the negotiation ? . "
"Supposing you pnrchaso the
works , Mr Gibbs , " asked the re-
iorter , "what effect would the ordi
lance have in restricting your charges
or gas manufactured under your
"We shall sell gas for what wo have
greed to and are ready to make thnt a
londitionof the purchase of the woiks.
The ordinance would hold n < * to that
under any circumstances. You can
> ay that just na sure as the sun shines
within nine months wo will bo selling
a better gai in Omaha than that now
vended at the rates fixed by the city
wuncll. We moan butinots , wo have
lie procctsflB and the capital to put
hem into execution and the people of
Omaha phall certiln'y ' have a part of
ho benefit of the now invention. "
