< V Now mid F vorAulo Cli.uigo In the
Name iinrt Munngcmont of Lin
coln's HlR Hotel From Gor-
hiuu to Windsor ,
Soon after the Nebraska legislature
convened at Lincoln last January the
members thereof and the people of that
town were most agreeably pleased to wit' '
ness the opening of an excellently built
hotel , that subsequently became a very
popular and delightful place with all
these who were so fortunate as to enjoy
1U hospitality nnd comforts. It was
known as the Gorham house , the firm
nome of proprietors being Qorham &
Brown. The former gentleman had
been engaged several years previously In
hotel business at Burlington , Iowa.
The other proprietor , though , Mr. Nat
Brown , for years throughout the west ,
as the representative , first of a largo
Omaha business house , and secondly as
traveling passenger agent for the Chica
go , Burlington & Qulnoy railroad com
pany , was a favorite , and well known.
His reputation extended from the lakes
to the mountains , and ho numbered his
friends by the thousands. With such a
man as Mr. Brown as their host , It Is not
to bo wondered at , strangely , that with
the states law-makers and their families ,
with the people of Nebraska , who had
business at the capital , and with the
travelling public generally , the Gorhani ,
soon leaped Into universal popularity and
was known everywhere as one of , If not
the best , hotel at Lincoln. Having boon
a long time on the road himself , Mr.
Brown's knowledge rolntlvo to the wants
of hotel guests , served him admirably ,
and , ho know how to provide , not only
for their comfort nnd convenience , but
for their entertainment ani amusement
as well.
But there lifta recently bcon another
change , for the batter , though the famil
iar form. pleasant face and
genial presence of Mr. Nat Brown ,
still remains at the head
of affairs. Last week , Mr.
Gorham disposed of his interest to a gon-
tlpmnn from Oikaloosa , la. , by the name
of Ghsa , so that henceforth the firm will
bo known as Brown & Glass. They have
also changed the name of their house by
rubbing out Gorham , and painting over
the portals in Its stead , "Tho Windsor. '
Mr. Gloss cornea to Nebraska beating with
him the reputation of being a very pleas-
act and popular gentleman. Lfo , too ,
llko his senior , has been long engaged In
the railroad business as passenger agent ,
therefore , . , Is well and favorably known.
Under Its now management The Windsor
Is to bo made more popular than ever.
With plenty of moans at their command
the proprietors propose to leave nothing
nndono that will conduce to the complete
satisfaction of their guests. In fact , Tho'
Windsor Is to bo made a perfect homo
for Nebraska people and the travelling
public generally. In addition to
iho proprietors , two of the
moat gentlemanly and courteous
clerks , Messrs. E. S. Montroao and Ira
Elgby , will extend smiling and worm
welcome to the guests. Mr. Iltgby for
merly stood behind the register In tha
Paxton hotel , of this city , end his com
panion , Mr. Montrose , comes from the
Clifton house at Ottawa , 111.
The Windsor Is comparatively a now
house , elegantly fitted and furnished
throughout , and snppliod with all the
modern Improvements belonging to the
management of a first-class public houso.
It is pleasing to note that Messrs. Brown
A Glass give that attention to their culin
ary department which is assurance that
tholr tables will bo second totho | tables of
no other hotel in this or any other coun
try. They are amply supplied with
everything the market affords , cooked to
suit the palates of the most exacting , and
served In the very latest s ylo of the art.
The hotel has a large , attractive and
airy cilice , splendid rooms , easy and com
fortable beds , and In fact every feature to
make It the best place to stay at when in
the Capital City.
Tlio Former Makes n Bold Attempt
to Get AAV ayVlth tlio Latter ,
Bat Fttllp ,
Between 3 nnd ! o'clock yesterday
morning , a rather good looking young
lady , giving her name as Mary Larson ,
appeared at the city jail , much fright
ened , and reported to Jailor Slgwart that
a man by the name of Andrew Stanley
had shortly before mndo an attempt to
outrage her , and she wanted him arrested.
Mary is a Swede girl , and several youug
men of that nationality accompanied her .
to the jail. They were all greatly exe
cited over the matter end did a great deal B
of land talking about It. Not being able Oi
to take any action hlnuclf , Jailor Slg-
wart , advised the young lady to como
around later yesterday morning and sco
his honor , Jndgo Stouberg. Abaut 0
o'clock she was on hand again. The
story told to Judge Stetiberg Is not suffi
cient hardly to cause an arrest , but it will
bo Investigated to-day. Saturday night
Mary Lars2n attended a danca in the .
northwest pirt of the town near where
this man Stanley resides and OPTUS n
brick yard. She states that about 1 " ;
o'clock , ho invited her to go out nnd take B'
a buggy ride with him which Invitation Ii
she accepted without any protest. Where
they went she could not tell because the c
locality and everything about it looked h
strange to her. Anyway while out , Stanli
ley made an audacious and bold a
attempt to take undue liberties with her ,
but she struggled , screamed and created
such n scone , that ho became frightened , r
throw hla victim out of tbo buggy , then ]
drove oil and lift her. She finally mndo
her way back to the dance hall and made
known to her friends what had occurred
whereupon they became rather wild will
Indignation and excitement , Could they

Something About tlio "Work of Uio
Council Committee
anil Jifrcreon 1'ark.
' There were 3,000 people , men , women -
men mid children , at HaEssom park last
utidny , " said a member cf the council
committee in charge of the work of 1m-
> rovlng the parks to aVoportor Saturday.
That chows that the efforts being
made to Improve the park are not unap
preciated. "
It is n fact , without doubt , that
Inuscom park , since the committee have
icon pushing the work of improving it
las bucomo moro and moro r. popular roBert -
Bert The place , Indeed , has boon
; reatly beautified by tbo changes which
lave taken placo. The walks hnvo bcon
rimmed , the grnss trimmed , and a now
dancing platform provided in place of the
old ono , which was in the last stages of
decay , and unfit and unsafe for the tread
of dancing feet. The contract has al
eady beouletfor a system of watcrworVs
hjc will supply the park fountains ,
vhich are shortly to bo put in. It la ox-
looted that within thirty days the water-
rorka will bo completed and the two
"ountriins In order. It hss been suggest-
: d that n largo lake bo dug out in ono
octlon of the park , to bo supplied cither
> y artificial means , or from natural
prlng . In all probability , howovortho
work will bo deferred until next year ,
when moro funds will bo available.
The council commlttoo have been con-
nlting the county commissioners and a
ilan his been perfected whereby the road
rest of the park , running north and
suth , is to be graded and the dirt used
n filling np the depressions which now
xlst in the west side , and which are
overed by two bridges. Pipe will be
aid In these two depressions before they
are filled , BO that the drainage will be
perfect ,
The classes who flock to the park on
Saturdays and Sundays , as Indeed on the
> thor days of the week , are as nrulo , well
> ebavod and do not attempt any deeds of
vandalism. From time to time , however ,
ho roughs who occasionally find their
way thither are guilty of committing
hlogs which should not bo al-
owed , For example , last Sunday a
> arty of rowdies amused themselves by
( tiling the squirrels and "chipmunks , and
> y frightening and insulting ladles and
children. To prevent such outbreaks , It
laa been ouggosted that Marshal
Cntnmlngs be asked to detail a special a
lollreman to patrol tbo park on Saturday
ind Sunday of every week. Thorasolu-
ion ordering such a thing has pa-sod the
council , r > nd it Is probable that the de
sired stops In this direction will BOOH bo
: akcu by the marshal.
Jefferson park has also received its
hare of attention. The fences and
stand have bcon painted , and the grass
.rlmuied , end things generally put in
.hlp-ohnpu. ] Two fountains will also

other without the fence ,

Saturday In the police court the
.rial of John Fox for committing assault
upon his wlfo and upon his mother , was
aken up. The testimony developed a
state ' of affairs which were simply shock
ing. It was proved by Mre , For , the
mother , that her eon had bjnteu her most p
cruelly , bruising und maiming her In a tl
liorriblo manner. Mrs. Fox , the wife , tl
had also como In for her share of the T
abuse and 111 treatment which had bcon ii
inflicted upon her not only once , but
many times , by her husband. The tostlt t
mony throughout showed that young p
Fox was a heartless brute , whoso lack of
decency was continually impelling him to f
do things which ono with n spark of manhood -
hood i In his composition would not
dream of doing. Fox has boon arraigned
on < similar charges before , end
each i time ho has been lot oil'
with light punishment. This
time , however , Judge Stonberg concluded
to let him have the full measure of the
low's severity and accordingly fined him
$25 and costs , and sentenced him to ono

used was BO Illiterate , blasphemous and
vulgar that Judge Stonborg took Officer
Crawford to task yesterday for not arresting -

back and forth through Jones street ,
howling Ilka liquor-crazed donnionde ,
threatening ' oil sorts of dlro punishments

But they could not bo fonnd and oven *

of an evening , and especially
Saturday evening , when hundreds of
laboring men congregate in the neighborIng -
Ing boor halls to enjoy a few glasses and
talk over events of the past wook. Any

AlT AlL Angeles is the center of this trade.
The Pacific coast nud coaet Islands ,
from Monterey In California to
Acapulco 'n ' Mexico , with contributions
from J China , Japan , and the Sonlh sear ,
furnish the product , and Europe Is the
market. Franco is the Urgcst buyer ,
and next In the order named follow Ger
many , Belgium , Holland and England.
The product consists of mothcr-of-pcnrl ,
pearl oyster , brilliant or curlovs eholla
from Japan , China , and the South seas ,
the several varieties of abalone , and
conehologlcal medley known 'In busincs *
parlance as "small shells. "
Small shells command from $50 to $70
per hundred pounds , and are found along
the south coast and on the outlying Is
lands. They roach California in sack * ,
and in sicks they are shipped to Europe ,
where they sro used in the manufacture
of many curious nnd ornamental things.
The mother-of-poarl , known to the
trade as "tho Tahiti shell , " Is the most
valuable of all shells. It is exquisitely
beautiful , flvo to eight Inches In diameter ,
round and Hat , and overlaid with a ten
der niilk-whlto , gloaming eurfaco that
Immediately challenges admiration.
Specimens uf "tho Tahiti nholl" may bo
spun in sorao of the art "windows of thla
city and Now York. They are usually-
displayed with n sunburst sunset , or
hmhcipo painted upon them , but the
finest and most perfect shells find their
way to Europe.
Mother-of-pearl shells are found around.
and on the coast and Island of Tahiti.
They are deep-water iholls ; notlvo divers
ralao them to Iho surface , and they are
brought to CAlifoinia by trndors , who
procure them by barter. The divers of
Tahiti display great daring and fortitude ,
and many talcs are told of the foata they
perform nnd the dangers they encounter.
Talcs are told of dlvcra who never re
turned , and who are supposed to have
boon devoured by marliio monsters or
lost or entangled In the labyrlnthlan
windings of coral caves.
Tahiti nhells nro worth In lump , wholc-
nalo , $1.50 to $1 each , end the finest
Delected shells are valued at $50 per pair.
In America Tnnitl shells are marketed
solely as articles of virtu , bric-a-brac ,
and curios. In Enrtpe , however , they
find additional nso and value in the man
ufacture of rare and elegant articles of
fancy , fashion , toilet , and jewelry , and
In the creation of the most coatly and ar
tistic Inlaid work. Thus motnmorphcsed
the shells of the ocean find tholr way
back to America , form a distinct trade ,
command fabulous prices , and beoomo
the special prey of the tariff demon.

very perceptibly In Ha formation. It Is
flatter and more regnlar , and rows of ray-
like grooves radiate from the thicker per
Hon. These shells are used in the man
nfacturn of pear ) buttons , n trade con

value of the pearl oyster depends on the
vagaries of fashion.
Of ubalono shells there are thrco dis
tinct varieties known to commerce the
bluo-groca of Mexico , the black of Cali
fornia , and the gray abalone common to
the whole coast. Uf thcao the Mexican
variety Is the most valuable. It Is fonnd

rocks throughout the coast of Mexico
from < San Thomas , cloeo to the American
line , as far south as Acapulco. Blno-
grcon ' abalones are gathered by mestizos
and brought to Wilmington ( San Pedro )
traders and fishermen. Tha Mexican
