A Narrow Kacapofroni Death Under
tlio AVlieols.
Jamoa Fitzgerald , a carpenter living
in this city , had a most narrow escape
from death on Suaday afternoon last ,
' Uo was walking along the track of the
Union Pacific rail way near Seventh street ,
when he noticed an engine approaching
him from behind. When the engine had
come almost upon him ho stopped from
7 fr o Clio track ho was walking upon to another
running parallel , making it just in time
to bo knocked down by a second
engine ho had not soon beoring
down upon him. Fortunately for Jam
bo was thrown to the ground just outside
the rail , in such a manner that the pass
ing engine ran along over the back part
of his loft log horribly lacerating it and
tearing the ilesh from the bono near the
thigh and all the way down to his foot and
cutting oil' his heel.
The wounded man was taken lo St.
Joseph's hospital where ho now is. The
injuries though by no means serious are
of such a nature that ho will bo confined
to his bed for quite a length of timo.

Ono of the boldest and most daring
robberies attempted for some time in
this city took place laat evening about
eight o'clock ' , on G.iss street , between
Eighteenth and Nineteenth.
About that time Mr. Milt Barlow , of
the United States National bank , and a
driver named Casa , from the stables of
Charles Motitor , were going to the house
of the former when they heard near St.
Catherine's Academy the moans of someone
ono as if iu distress. Stopping to listen ,
hearda weak of " " ' ' "
they cry "Help ! 'llclpl"
coming out of the dnrkncaa. Going
up to the place from whlc'i the cry
came , they wore startled by two mou
rising to their feet nnd Hoeing from
them in the darknoaa. Shortly after
ward n third arose who said ho had been
sot upon by the two escaping men.
Mr , Barlow and the driver started
after the fugitives , following them at
some distance behind until they reached
tlio alloy between Caos and California , iu
bho rear of the Swedish Lutheran
church , where they distanced their
pursuers and escaped in the
larknoss. They then returned and found
.hc3 unfortunate mat. in the house
of a friend , across the street from where
; ho attempted robbery took placo. The
victim a young man whoso name could
not bo learned had boon subjected to
rough uoago nt the hands of his assail
ants , being nearly strangled.
What is astonishing about the whole
affair is the fact that while these high
waymen were struggling with their in-
.ondcd victim several persons were pass-
ng along the street on the opposite side ,
not oven hearing his cries for help or
irovonting the robbers from there accom-
) llshmontof their purpose.
Last night about nine o'clock Joaoph
Hanger , n Bohemian tailor , was hold up
ay thrco men under the railroad bridge
on Thirteenth street and robbed of fifty
dollars in money and a silver watch and
chain. Mr. Langor had been visit-
; some friends in Bohemian
: own and was strolling loisurly towards
Fritz Wirth's hotel , where ho resides ,
when the attack was mado. Not satis-
led with robbingtho unfortunate man the
robbers gave- him a aovoro beating ren
dering him insensible , evidently
with the Idea ] of preventing him
: rom calling for assistance. It appears ,
according to the statement made by Mr.
Langor that two of the men seized him
by the throat , nearly strangling him ,
while the other man kicked
liim in the stomach and then
robbed him. After committing
the robbery and cruelly chastising their
victim the miscreants flod. Mr. Langor ,
who Is in the employ of Frank Ramgo , ia
highly respectable citizen , and is
liighly esteemed by his national brethren
of Omaha.
The 1'ollco Committee Investigating
tlio Police Complaints ,
Vestordny afternoon the council com
mittee on police consisting oE Messrs.
Boohol , Ford and Thrano resolved itself
into a court of inquiry to investigate the
charges made against certain members of
the police forco.
The first matter taken up was the com
plaint of Charles Fleck who had commu
nicated to the council ihnt ho had received -
coived a severe beating nt the hands of a
drunken prisoner while in the cily jail.
The evidence adduced showed that while
the turnkey Tom Uormick was engaged
in making preparations to put the prison
er iu his cell Fleck came in and was struck
by him bsforo Cormick could'lnterforo.
The cano against Policeman Hyde ,
charged with drunkenness , was the next
case considered. The captain of the
force , the marshal and several other
witnesses gave testimony. Hyde him
self did not seriously contend against the
charge lodged against him , but argued m
mitigation of the od'onsothisdrunkonncai
did not interfere with the proper per
formance of his duties , that it happened
about the time ho wao to leave his boat
nnd that this wai the first time ho had
boon guilty of this infraction of police
The committee adjourned without
coming to a conclusion in any of the
cases. It will meet this morning again
at ! ) o'clock at which time the cases of
Highland and Knight charged with being -
ing drunk on their beats will bo taken
up.Tho witnesses in the examinations are
not Bworu nor are those charged allowed
to confront the witnesses against them.

To the Editor of TIIK BUK.
I notice in your issue of the 10th nit. ,
a communication eianod by ono 0. H.
Roberts , la which the writer attempts to
carry the Impression that the Albion
press is subsidised , and the Albion post
oflico run in a louse nnd careless manner.
As to the first , wo care nothing , but the
public might possibly attach some importance
tanco to the latter charge if allowed to go
unrofutcd. The facts in the case are
these :
1st , C. II. Roberts was so intoxicated
while in Albion that ho could not reason
ably bo expected to know what did actu
ally occur.
occur.After Mr. Roberts had indicted
at least a dozan interviews upon us , and
wo had become reasonably familiar with
hia story , ho Intimated that Rico must
pay him something or "suffer the conso-
quoncus ; " that president Arthur's cabi
net were intimate chums of his ; that ho
controlled the senators , and "had" Rosewater -
water , and that "by the eternal , ho
would bounce Rico. " Wo thereupon
told him in pretty plain language that
hia little bchomo for "blood money"
wouldn't win , nnd advised him eo go
hence without date.
2nd. Mr. Roberts never ofi'orod the
Argus any communication. IIo did
however make a verbal complaint and
wo told him to formulate his grievances ,
put them in writing , and if they amount
ed to anything ho could have all the space
in the Argus desired. IIo never did so ,
but indulged in verbal and rambliugcom-
plaints against postmaster Rico. An near
us wo can learn the important (0 ( postal
card referred to was , by error put in
banker Roberta' box and returned by
him as soon aa ho discovered the mis
take :
Mr. Rico is an efficient postmaster and
gives general satisfaction. JIo has , at
nis own uxponso fitted up ono of the fin
est postcflicea1 west of Omaha , nnd the
lii ! : docs injustice to an honest nnd capable -
able plliciul by giving publicity to such
outrageous charges , unices they are ac
companied by something moro substan
tial than 0. H. Roberta' word.

isxEit , September 19. Few small

as Wianor. For several years the place
lias shown little or no improvomont.until
the progressive firm of Graham & Mo-
Nish orostnd , last season , a few two story
brick blocks. This seemed to start the
ball rolling and the heretofore dormant as.
piratlons of public spirited citizens have
become fully aroused , and to-day prepa
rations are compiled and the specifica
tions completed for
to bo put In operation ou or before the
tenth of November noxt. This ia the
most practical scheme I have heard of for
any town , as the entire espouse docs not
exceed that of supplying wells for the
culinary and other purposes demanded by
a young city ,
The proposed plan is to make a largo
well on the bottom land near the depot ,
there erect a big windmill which pumps
the water into two largo rosorvors of 1500
barrels each. These tanks are fitted with
filters and nro located upon the hill east
of town , thus giving 113 foot fall.
From those tanks the contractors are
to lay 0,000 feet of mains thrdftgh the
principal streets , with hydrants located
at convenient places for use incase of
fire , the fall being uufllcont to glvo iorco
to throw a two inch stream far above
the tallest buildings. The mains nro to
bo tapped by individual pipes for domes
tic uso.
Is the inaugurator and solo owner of th
project. The whole thiug is contracted
for $1,000.00 and Sir. A. L. Strang , of
Omaha is the contractor. Work
will bo commenced at onco.
It is estimated that a supply of 1,000
gallons per hour will sallico.
In looking over the town I notice many
now residence buildings and many more
are contemplated. The business part of
the city has boon greatly improved by the
grading of the streets , laying of now and
substantial sidewalks , planting of useful
and ornamental shade trees , etc. , etc. It
is safe to aay that business under the nus
nlccs of thn wido-nwako , go-ahead busi
ness men and citizens generally which It
contains , will in no distant day bo uni

"Can you ah or- can you toll mo

"Yes , sir 95 , "
"Ahi thank you guess ah I'll go

minded man lounged awny towards the
olovator. The hotel clerk looked after
the slowly vanishing guest , and then
turning to a Star reporter who was stand
ing near , said :
"That man is a holy terror. I've neon
all kinds of men since I've boon in this
business , but ho is the great original for

days , and I have to watch him like a
baby. I'll bet ho'll either forgot hia way

won't know why ho wont there. "
"What is he , a genius ? " asked the re
"I suppose BO ; ho's an inventor and ho
dent know anything but cogs and wheels.

because if 1 don't take caru of him lie
will surely attack the reputation of the

"Do you have many of those charac
ters to look after/ / " inquired the listener.
"Never had one like him , " said the
clerk , "llo'o the worst ; but vro have a
great many guests who exhibit signs of
preoccupation. Perhaps the commonest
example of abucnt-mindednosswhich 1 uuo

"Tlioro was an Kupjlishmiui here last
winter , " continued the clerk , "who deposited -
posited nearly { . ' ' .1,000 in Hank of Kitglnml
notes with mu. The next day ho was
called to New York by a tolcgtam , and
having plenty of American money in his
wallet , ho hurried to the cars without
paying hia hotel bill , and never thought

The United States Treasury deport
ment hns just now taken the pauper
emigration bull by the tail ; two years ago
when impositions of this character vroru
[ loiuted out vigorously the department
might hr.vo taken the animal by the
jiorns. However , lot 113 bo thankful it
isn't n mule , and that the government is
big enough to swing the other animal by
the CiUidnl end. Collector Robertson , of
Now York ha- received instructions that
really show symptoms of shutting oil tlio
American dumping ground for foreign
refuse. Heretofore the most energetic
action of Federal and local authorities
has boon no moro effective than the
customary sign-board on vacant lots
"Placo no rubbish hero under penalty oi
the law. " Like this description of indofi.
nito threat the sign on Castjo Garden has
accomplished little or nothing. Now it
really looks as though the customs au
thorities nndthojboardof commissioners of
emigration meant business. The one
will have every vessel boarded mid exam
ined for paupers , and'tho other will do-
maud a bond from each steamship com
pany in guarantee that paupers shall bo.
fed while in Castle Garden and returned
whence they came.
It is intended to enforce the same rules
n other sea sports , so that the Board of
Guardians of the poor in inland cities and
counties may look forward to the time
when n largo percentage of poor house
paupers and applicants fur outdoor relief
will not bo recent arrivals from abroad ,
as has been the case in a marked degree
in the last three years. When it became
known positively that local poor societies
and boards in Europe , were systematical
ly shipping the halt , lame and blind to
Americaiitid that in numberless instances
persons in fair circumstances wore send
ing hither their dependent relatives , it
was the duty of the government to
adopt prompt and efficient measures
against the imposition. When it ia seen
at the beginning of an evil that it will
probably grow beyond endurance the
proper action is to squelch it at onco.
This country is willing to receive al
comers from abroad who emigrate logiti
m&loly , but it is not n "dump , " nor yet
a cess pool , into which Europe may de
posit its garbage and mistiness. Local
nuthoritk'H bhould -
co-operate energeti
cally with th'i seaport officials in return
ing all piu M. ThU city could afford
to pay the passage of such undesirable
persons rather than be at the expense of
their maintenance for half a your.

Kind In tlio World.
Wnnhinglon Star ,
In so extensive a building as the gov
ernment printing office the largest es
tablishment of the kind in thu world
filled with valuable material , and con
taining within its walls every day over
two thousand operatives , the necessity of
extraordinary precautions for the safety
of lifo and property from destruction by
fire is apparent , particularly ns the build-
iug is not a fire proof structure. The
present head of the odico , Mr. Sterling
P. Rounds , who is n practical business
man with great executive ability and who
has had experience in the west as a fire
man , when ho took charge of the govern
ment printing a few years ago recognised
this fact ; and at the present time there is
probably no butter equipped building ia
the country for preventing loss of lifo
or properly by a conflagration , Before
Mr. Roundu took churgo the principal
moann of oscnpo provided for thu inmates
of the iirmoimo building wore from stair
ways in a couple of towers in addition to
the ordinary Btairnaya ,
Now a plentiful Hupply of water can bo
turned on rnch Hoer at n monient'ii notice
from the six stand pipes , which run ii |
near the Udders , and sections of lioauaro

and to tr.lta cliurgu of each outlet or BIIO-
tlon of hoeo in an emoigency there la nn

and lieutenants , with a suitable number

guishor , in charge of a c-tptum and lieu
tenant , und on the occasion of the burn
ing of the stable on the promises some
months ago , these wcro found to work
There la an iron tramway running en
tirely around the building , with iron
cagoa secured rcith wire ropes , to aid in
convoying from the upper windows any
person , who might In case of a fire below -
low , have the means of their escape cut
< 11. This tramway was designed by Oon
Meifrs , and the experiments mndo with It
luvo been entirely satisfactory. In nddl-
to the ordinary fire iMc.tpos there are two
canvra escapes , reaching from the upper
floor to the { round , andas 13 well known
thov have been satisfactorily teatcd sev
eral times.
In hia last report Mr. Rounds nnya :
lions and arrowa arc also provided ,
which would cnablo lifo liuca to bo shot
sr thrown through the upper windows.
Up to the time these changes were made
ihe entire ollice was supplied with only
a three-inch connection with the water
mains , which barely gave aulllcloiit wa-
lor for daily use , and was wholly inado-
junto for the purposes. Hut by the kindly
co-operation of Mr. Kilwnnl Clark , ar
chitect of the capitol , the ollico haa now
moro than double the former supply , and
luito ample to render the now lire appa
ratus in every way clliciont. All the
outside doom were originally hung uo as
to open toward the inside of the building
and in eiso ; of a panic , with the pressure
ngatnat them , it would have been im-
[ losslblu to have opened them. The
rea have been changed BO as to open
either way , and egress cannot thereby bo
Besides oil thodo ample facilities for
the safe egress of employes in cnao of
sudden alarm of fire , the entire force of
Females hns been divided up Into com
panion of forty each , and each company
In charge of a captain , with several aids ,
and in cose of alarm the companies are
taken out by designated fire-escapes ,
under the charge and aid of.tho men ap
pointed for the purpose. Tlio first trial
of the system demonstrated the fact that
the bindery , containing about five hun
dred women mid nearly one hundred
trnn , was emptied In loss than ono min
ute ; and it is believed that after moro
trials the entire ollico can bo cleared in
less than two n.inulcs. It , therefore ,
may bo falriy stated that for the first
time in the history of the ollico It ia
reasonably safe from fire , and its em
ployes from danger of loss of life or limb
caused by a stampede or want of sullicl
out ogress.
RThoro have boon test alarms rung since
the present system was adopted , and it
was found that every man or woman
know his or her place. By a test once
made in the bindery it was found that
the folding-room , containing over five
liuudrod operatives , wa * cleared insldo of
ono mltmto. The female operativeshow
ever , found that in going down the fire
there " Toms"
escapes were some "Pooping
on the ground , and in subsequent tests
asked that canvas bo placed on the ladder
before they would make the descant.
In each room there is a captain with
three lieutenants , and theao direct the
pthora in case of an alarm , but the work
ing force consists of about forty men to a
section. Probably no bolter trial of the
system was over given than that of last
month , when a partition on which oil
from the bindery had dropped took firo.
The tlnmcs were extinguished when
Chief Engineer Cronin was within a few
yardn of the BCOIIC , and neither ho nor
Mr. Rounds know of it until it was all
ovorno general alarm having boon given ,
For some years it has boon though
that the old portion ot the building was
unsafe in consequence of the great wolghi
on it , but by exercising duo care and ro'
moving the surplus material to The Con
gressional Glebe building , there has no !
been for no mo time pant any danger , the
oflicors keeping in this portion of the
structure at any ono time the smallosl
possible amount of material necessary for
the work in hand.
Supt. Rounds' ollico is connected by
telephone with every part of the build
ing , and in case of fire ho would bo in
formed of it at onco.
