ANordlnanoo to prevent huckstering
on the streets of Omaha was Intro
duced at the last mooting of the city
council , and referred to the aopropri
ate committee , by whom it onght to
bo promptly pigeon-holed. Wo want
all the hucksters wo can got. The
prloei of garden truck and farm pro-
dnoe are not yet so low In Omaha that
we can afford to place an embargo on
the business. Any competition In the
ale of food products should bo en
couraged rather than suppressed.
Of course , If Mr. Eitabrook wanti
to build a market on his Sixteenth

But he U acting entirely too previous

grounds for believing that otho

However this may bo the Depart

congress and which was to have boo

The poocoablo invasion of our state
by a host of eastern editors calls for
some comment on the part of their
brother journalists In Nebraska. They
may bo assured in advance of a hearty
welcome f rorn onr people , Nebraskans
are proverbially hospitable , and they
are not Inclined to cloud their record
when their guests happen to bo of a
profession In which onon eyes and at
tentive oars are the prerequisites of
success. Both eyes nnd ears
will find ampio employment dor-
Int ; their short sojourn In Omaha
and their flying trip through onr
state. They como to .us at a season
of the year when onr people are
very busy in planting and cultivating
iholr crops and when the country
looks its best. It their travels
through the southern portion of our
state they will bo carried through the
finest corn lands of the Union and
whirled rapidly across a sec
tion which twenty years ago
wan mjppod In oar geographies
as the Great American Desert.

to the Wyoming Stock Groworu' neso

the territory worth , after the sprit

commonly said that , in mutton an

In a part of Sweotwator county , In

following wcro reported ; In one cat
b1,500 sheep wore lost out of 2,000 ; i
another , 7,000 out of 9.COO in abet
throe daya. These two cases are 01
ceptlons , aa one rancher lost 100 oc
of 2,000 during the winter. Thoabov

loss will average 25 per cent.
The opening of the Eist River
bridge , which occurs to-day In Now
York i nd Brooklyn , is an event of
moro than local Interest. It marks
the successful culmination of ono of
the greatest works of modern en
gineering and celebrates the comple
tion of a mighty monument , whoso
lofty towers will mark for centuries to
come the location of America's great
est metropolis.
The designs for the East river
bridge were accepted In 1869 , and
work was begun on the foundation of
the Brooklyn pier oc the 3d of Janu
ary , 1870. Moro than fourteen years
have consequently boon expended in
tha work and $14,000,000 of money ,
The bridge Is the largest suspension
bridge In existence. The span Is
1,695 foot In length between the piers ,
and the entire roadway is moro than
a mile long. The towers reach a
height of 200 feet and the center of the
spa > < is 130 feet above high water. The
structure weighs 4,000 tons , and when
loaded will weigh at hast 5,030 tons. As
this is barely moro than a tenth of the
breaking power of the structure , all
fears for its safety under the heaviest
possible travel are gronndlesa ,
America haa reason to boast that
the principle of wire bridges was drat
developed in this country , and their
adaptability to railroad purposes
proved by her engineers , after its de
nial by such eminent foreign
authority ss Sir Robert
Stepheneon. The same engineer
who designed the Eist River bridge ,
constructed In 1855 the first railroad
suspension bridge In the world , This
la the once famous structure spanning
the Niagara river , which has since
been dwatfed by later triumphs of en
gineering. It la fitting , therefore ,
that the entire country should bo In
terested in the completion of a great
work which will bo nt once a monument -
mont to American Invention , and an
artery of truffle between two of the
largest cities In the country.

egal Proceedings in the Sulli-
van-Dodsou Cease ,
The Neighbors Express Their
Indignation Very Em
The report of the Dodson-Sulllvan
affair In yesterday's BEE caused a de-
ided sensation in North Omaha ,
where the parties era all well known ,
It turned out that after Emma Dad-
son left the Sulllvana she wont to
] ol. Smytho'a office for legal advice ,
lero aha waa found by her parents ,
who had retained Ohas , R. Rodlok as
counsel. The yonng lady refused to
go homo with her folks and they
ecured a writ of habeas corpus in
ho connty court and she
accompanied Deputy Sheriff Orowell
. ; hero , and the case was set for 9
) 'clook yesterday , pending which
Miss Emma waa remanded to the care
- of her parents , and consented to go
homo if Mr. Orowell would act aa her
escort , which ho did.
It appears that this did not end the
trouble , which waa renewed at the
gate of the residence by Mr. Dodson ,
who acted in such a manner that Mr.
E. Y. Smith , his neighbor , went over
and gave him a pretty good talking to.
Mr. Bailey and other ueighbora
gathered around and expressed their
Indignation pretty plainly , and finally
half convinced the father that ho had
gene too far. The young lady refused
to stay at homo all night end stayed at
a neighbor's.
. Yesterday when the ciso was
called It waa dismissed without any
< proceedings , as it was admitted thai
Emma was past eighteen years of ago
and privileged to choose for
herself where she should go ,
The writ had charged thai
the illegal detention was on the parl
of the Snlllvans , and Miss Sullivan
appeared before Judge Ohadwlck and
stated that on the contrary the girl hac
taken refuge in their house , and thai
after her departure she was not aware
of her whereabouts.
Sullivan waa discharged Tuesday ,
, the charge registered against him
on the book atftho jail not being sus
tained by affidavit during the day.
Whether ho will file a complaint for
assault and battery la not known.
- Miss Dodson called at the BEE office
and had hardly gone when
couple of the neighbors , gentlemen ol
the highest standing , well to do and
with the nerve to see things rightec
if they have to take a hand themselves ,
called and made some very serious
chargea against Mr. Dodaon , claiming
that ho aud his wlfo had both treated
Emma brutally , and that the whole
neighborhood was indignant. Ho Bale
they came near tar and feathering
Dodson Tuesday , and wore sorry now
that they had not done so , but prom
Ised that if things did not run It bet
ter shape up therothey would takothi
girl away If she went back , and woulc
take justice In their own hands ant
give Mr. Dodson a dose that he wonlc
not forgot.
: Just what Miss Dodaon intenda to
do la not known , but at present ovsry
thing In quiet.
There IB one thing to be said before
fore closing , and that ia that ono am
all apeak In the highest terms of Mia
Emma's tharactor , and are Inoensec
that anything should be hinted agalns
It. She is a very prepossessing yonng
lady , aud they say that her treatmen
has been perhaps the resnlt of a mis
taken idea of what discipline la , and
on whom it should bo exorcised. Th
sympathy in the case la all for the
yonng lady.
