THE WORK OF DETECTIVES.
The sad atory of the ruin of Jacob
M. Smith , of Atchlionis ono that cannot
help exciting some sympathy. After n
long and honorable record as an enter
prising business man , ho ia charged with
an attempt to barn his own pork-pack
ing house for the purpono of defrauding
the Insurance companies. The only ex
cuse for this misstep , which has rained
his life , wrecked the happiness of
cha-rming and loving family , and pain
fully surprised his friends , was that he
was financiilly embarrassed and becoming <
ing desperate reiortod to this method oi
recuperating his fallen fortune. But lal
113 look for a moment into the facts , ai
recited in iho proas dispatches , to Ascer
tain If there nronotpotsibly aomocxtonn <
atlng circumstance ; , or If ho la not the
victim of some foul conspiracy.
For some tlmo past hogs , moat andothoi
freight had been stolen from the care
nud stock yards in Ei&t Atohlson , and the
railroad companies put detectives at work
to ferret out the robber * . It was upon
the promises of 'Mr. Smith that the rob
beries occurred. The detectives took
Smith into their confidence , and ono of
them , under the assumed name of John
son , became his driver. An arrangement
was made between Smith and the railroad
companies whereby the former was to al
low his safe to ba blown open in order
that a batter hold might bo got
upon tbo thieves , with whom
Johnson aaaosiated himself.
Now , at this point , la whore the strange
pirt of the story comes In. The dis
patches , sent ont by parties who in all
probability had heard only ono sldo , and
that of course being the statement of. the
detectives , state that not lung aft or this
arrangement Smith proposed a plan to
barn the packing house , promising to
give Johnson 810,000 for the job , To ac
complish thla both the watchmen on the
promises had to bo corrupted. Smith ,
for whom they worked twenty-two years ,
succeeded In doing thla. The plan was
carefully prepared. Everything waa ar
ranged for the safo-burgliry , to catch
the hog-thlevcs , and the fire-trap
was all sot to destroy the building. Bat
the insurance agents , who were aware of
what was going on , becoming afraid to
wait until the match should 'bo applied
lest the building should bo destroyed ,
ordered the arrests to bo mado.
Mr. Smith and his confederates , as
( roll as the hog thieves , were accordingly
taken into custody. Mr. Smith , who
had no connection whatever with the
thieves , confessed to the charge of at
tempted arson made against him , and
taking all tho'blame upon himself , begged
; hat his employes bo released.
Now , although Air. Smith ' 3 said to
idmit his gailt , IB it not possible that In
stead of his proposing to the dotectlvoa
: ho plan to barn the building , that the
proposition came from the detectives ?
Ead they not already put np A safe-
blowing job upon * the hog
thieves ? Why was that stop
accessary ? Could they not have
iavo been arrested tor the crime , with-
) ut being inveigled Into committing an-
ither ? Is it anymore strange than that
tbo detectives , in ord'orto create a sensa
tion , make a reputation , and reap a big
reward , should put np a job on Smith1 ?
Such tilings have occurred before. Did
lot detectives pat up a jo } ] to have -the
Nebraska state treasury robbed , for nether
) ther purpose than making a reputation
ind getting a reward , all at the oxpanio
if their misguided victims , who wonld
lover have thought of each a thing bad
lot the < detectives proposed it and led
ihem on. The mothoda of dotectlvea are
lomotlmes rather strange , and the1
true friends of Mr. Smith should'
; lvo the Eubjcct careful consideration
ind investigation , Perhaps ho has
} eon moro sinned against than sinning.
Furthermore , was it right to allow him ,
wen If ho did make the proposal , to pro-
: e < cd so far ? Wonld it not have been
uoro honorable on the part of the detec
tives , the Insurance ogonto , and others
vho knew rrhat was going on , and thereby
n a way making themselves parties to a
ionsplracy , to have checked Smith be-
'ore ho had virtually committed himself
o tho.crime' ' ? It would esom that the
jualneto of detectives is to a considerable
ixtont the ) pattlng-np of jjoba , rather
ban the detection of men after they
iavo committed crimes.

Market houses are always -surrounded bj

who have business with the city oflictali
do not want to be compelled to gc
through the jam , The great lnconvon <
lonco of taking prisoners and wltncssei
to and from the public court room locatec
in a market building , ia patent to every
body. The odora of a market house
wonld not be very doslrablo for the cltj
officials and those having buainos |
with them , Betides this such a combin
ation building could not bo made fire
proof fhort ofhalf a million dollars ,
Bnt oven If It conld bo erected cheaply
without objectionable features , Jefferson
eqnaro Is not now and never will bo cen
tral enough for a city hall. In locating
the city hall the main object should bo
public convenience and safety , Every
largo city aims to have the city and
county buildings as near together as they
can possibly bo placed. In many cities
the city and county buildings
are nndor ono roof. They should have
bcon so hi Omaha. It would have been
cheaper and much moro convenient to
have had the court hence and city hall in
ono building. The next best thing to
having them In ono building is to have
them as the cites are now located , op
posite to each other. This was the mcin
object nnd purpose of the city conncll
when it made the trade for the Paxton
ground. It was the understanding where
by the board of education entered into
the compact to contribute $25,000 to *
wards the city hall building
The board never would consent
to a change of location. It would pur
chase a lot nearer to the business center
and erect its own building rather than
move to Jefferson square. If put to a
vote to-day the location opposite the
court houao wonld receive seven-eighths
of the vote'Oi the people. The men who
ire agitating the change are only ob-
itrucling a needed public Improvement.
Fhoy may delay and prevent the
erection of a city hall for the next
; wo or thraa years. They m y
lelay and prevent iho erection of largo
3locks of buildings on upper Farnam
itroet , but that is all they will accom
plish. It has been the misfortune of
Dmaba that old moasbncks , cranks ,
mall ? , and men who have been
i failure all their lives In their

JHIGHTER DAYS FOR NEVADA.
Ever alncB the famous Comstook lode
egau to dwindle down to an ordinary
lold , itho state of Nevada has gone back-
rard. Mining camps and towns that
rero once protperoas and populous are
low mere hamlets. Even Virginia City ,
nco the liveliest mining town on the
'aclfic dope , has become moro than half
opopul&tod , while property , once hold at
fabulous .price . , can now be had for a
ong. The state has not now moro than
0,000 people. It is owing to this ro
larkable retrogression that Nevada has
termed " " state and
oca a "played-oet" ,
olitlclans have maintained that she
ught not to be entitled to the repro-
3ntatlon of actato in the national legU-
ilure , bnt should ba deprived of
or statehood , If It were possible ,
ad attached to 'California. The maln-
-nance of a foil set of atate officers at
i ; salaries has also been criticised. Ne-
ida has stood the brunt of unfavorable
rots comment for several years and it
ust , therefore , be a pleasure to the
evadans to see at last a break In the
3ads .that have been banging over the
ate for ao long a time. According to

Intaln that the mineral development
Nevada ia yet in ita infantcy , New
coyeiies are now bplpg made almost
dally , and sales of mining properties arc
constantly occurring. Altogether the out
look is quite favorable for n return ci
prospcrona days. The Caltt from whicl
wo quote , ( ays :
Some changes have been going on , ani
others are in prospect , which will Urgelj
aid In the future mining. The great draw
back to the prosecution of work has been thi
heavy expense , Including extravagant sala
ries of superintendents , the oxcestivo cost ol
transportation and general prodigality of ex
penditure , This Ja being remedied. The blp
salaries bavo been cat dawn to reasonable
figures ; the numerous leak-holes In management
agoment have been stopped , There is a ten
dency to division of labor by divorcing mill
ing and reduction from mining proper ,
which , it Is believed , will tesult in on im
provement of processes and greater economy
In working. The transportation question b
still in the future , but there are signs of r
change hero also. The Utah Southern , with
its prctent terminus at Frisco , near the Nev
ada line , Is already taking ore from eastern
Nevada to Salt Lake for reduction. There Is
a prospect of the continuation of a connecting
line across tbo state to California. Settle
ment oi the country along the line , competi
tive rates and tLe construction of short feed-
era will settle the question of transportation
and enable the state to utilize Its dormant
resources ,

It la n matter of surprise to those in-

the public schools. When It la considered
that the teacher spends moro waking
hours with the children Intrusted to her
euro than do their parents , and by tbo
cloao relationship which ho or she boaia
to tha in nnd their dally work , shapes
their lives for good or ill , the carelessness
of the vast majority of parontj in thla

for. The board of education , the sup-

Then ho wont around on the other sldo. Ho
