Opinions br Btookmon anil Others
Touching the Tool lf clilon In
llegard to Uhlpplng No-
biro Stock.
The publication In last night's BEE o ,
the decision of Commissioner Falthorn
of Chicago , relative to the through-bill
ing of Nebraska live stock on the Union
Pacific road to Chicago , caused no little
excitement in business circles , The
older was substantially ai follows :
"Tho Union Pacific Is not allowed to
nee local rates , and all llvo stock of the
clisi indicated must bo oanslgnod
throughout to Chicago , but Itwill bo
allowed to atop consignments at Omaha ,
and in event of tholr sale the Iowa linos'
proportion will bo deducted in the busi
ness reported to the pool. It will bo
allowed to do this because Omaha is the
terminus of the Union Pacific or on its
direct lino. The privilege , however , is
donltd to the Burlington & Missouri and
Sioux City & Pacific roida fcr the reason
that In older to roach Omaha they would
divert traffic from tholr through lines
which cross the river at Plattsmouth and
Blair. "
The change 1 generally regarded as a
most unfortunate ono for Omaba in many
recpects ; it Is feared , in fact , by these
conversant with the facts of the cage ,
that it will give a black eye to the stock
interests of the city. Of n number of
gentleman who conversed upon the matter -
tor with a BEE reporter yesterday there
was not ona but expressed hlmaolf as of
the opinion that the now order would
work evil to the stock interaata of Omaha
If allowed to remain In force very long.
Said Mayor Boyd to a reporter who
asked him his opinion of the matter :
' 'So far n.i I can see , thin change wilt
work Injury to the Omaha stock yards ,
provided the B. & M. folks will bj
prevented from shipping utock Into the
city , and I suppose they will.
Of course the Sioux City
& Pacific will likewise bo prac
tically debarred from shipping any
stock through Omaha , but this will not
make a pattlclo of difference. Why ?
Becauao Omaha receives very llttlo stock
over the lines of the Northwestern syo-
torn. To bo sure , wo got some from the
the St. Paul branch , but from the Elkhorn -
horn Valley extension little or nothing.
From the Barilngton & Missouri , how
ever , Omaha receives considerable stock ,
and to have that supply cut off by the
operation of tMi order will be a bid
thing for the city , certainly. If the order
could bo made to apply to all Nebraska
roade , no as to allow them to do through
billing from western points to Chicago ,
with atop-over privileges In Omaha ,
then certainly the change would prove a
great banefit to our city. But so far as I
can see now the Union Pacific will secure
all the advantages to bo reaped from the
chance. "
A number of other stockmen expressed
themselves as being of similar views.
General Manager floldrodgo , of the
Burlington & Missouri , upan being
shown the order yesterday , said that as
at present adviapd , ho thought the change
would prove Injurious to both Omaha
ncd the Burlington & Mlscontl road. It
would prevent hla road ? , undoubtedly ,
from sending livestock through Omaha
ai similar rates as through Plutlamouth.
aiD General Freight Agent Shelby , of the
Union Pacific , esil that he didn't care to
express an extended opinion upon the
subject of Commissioner Faltorn'u
order until that gentleman notified him
officially of the change. Ho said , how
ever , that he was Inclined to think It
would work a serious Injury to tbo stock II
Interests of this city. The Union Pacific ,
ho ramarked , would not ba at all pleased
with , the chaugo because it wanted to do
all it could to build up the otock Interest

The Bricklayers Decide to Finish
AVorlc on the It , & M. BuildIIIR.
The members of the Bricklayers Union
mat Tuesday night in K. of L. hall to
discuss the matter of resuming work on
the B. & M. headquarters addition. It
will bo remembered that labor on this
structure came to an end last week when
the bricklayers discovered that the stone
which ws being put into the building
had been cut by convict labor , having
come from Jollot.
The sotslon was a long and heated ono ,
nearly every union bricklayer iu the city
balng present. Tbo mooting die ! not ad
journ until after midnight. It was by a
very close vote decided that the bricklay
er. ] employe on the B. & M. building
should finish tlio work on the structure ,
inasmuch as tlu contractors , Bailey &
Olsenlind not ordered the cut ntono , and
know nothing of its having been brought
from the Joliet penitentiary. It was
further decided that a notice should nt
once ho Issued for the benefit of the con
tractors and architects of this city tint
hereafter no union bricklayers would
work on a building into which material
wes being put which had been furnished
by convict labor. The quontlon of con
vict labor was thoroughly discussed and
the union decided that every moans avail
able should bo nsedto deal with the evils
of the system.
The bricklayers will go to vrork upon
thn building to-day.
It is said that whan work
is resumed , still other complica
tions are apt to arise. The stone which
is to go into the building will hive to bo °
trimmed , and the men balongiog to the
stonecutters nnion vriil not bo alloued to
do the work , as tholr constitution strict
ly forbids their working ou atone furn
ished by convict labor. If mon are then
procured to do the necstsiry trimmingtho
union threatens to declare them scabs and
again otdor the bricklayers to quit work.
The brickliyors will then bo obliged to
yield , as the stonecutters' and bricklay
ers' unions have a compact to stand by
each other in all cisej. The bricklayers' Y
union has no convict labor clause In its
constitution , and hones the willingness
of the men to return to work.
Tin object in again calttcg the men
out of the building la stated by the stonecutter - Jt
cutter a to bo for the purpose of forcing
the Burlington & Missouri company to
reject the stone already secured irom Of
Jollot and replace it with now stone
which has not been handled by convict Otw

Order ,
A reporter for the Ben met Samto
Manderson hit night and engaged him in
an intoioitlng conversation upon his trip
cast. Ho left hero last vrcok , it may bo
romomboiol , going to Philadelphia ,
and thence to Now York , where ho at
tended the Grant obsequies as a member
of the smto committee appointed by
Vice President Hcndrlcka.
"There was ono thin ; ; remarkable about
the funoril , " remarked Senator Mandor *
eon In the course of an Interesting talk
upon thu subject , "that was the wonder
ful stillness whieh pervaded the vast con-
canrsaof people who witnessed the funeral -
oral of Gen. Grant. There- wen at least
1,500,000 people on the Directs , including
the spcctatora aud the 50,000
men in line. In all the throng , the most
death-like tilciico was observed. Evi
dences of profound respect aud honor for
the memory of the dead soldier there
wore , but no demonstration of violent
grief. Twenty years ago I had thn sad
prlvliega of witnessing the funeral pa
geant of Abraham Lincoln , The crowd
then was vastly smaller than on the occa
sion of Gan. Grant's funeral , but the ex
pression of bitterest sorrow was very
noticeable. Of course the violent manner -
ner of Lincoln's doith wan the occasion .
of n bitter grief , hardly to bo caused by
the demise of Gen. Grant. "
"It in wondiirfnl to note Into what close
relations the funeral brought old aoidioH
of the blue and the gray , " continued the
general , musingly. "I myself rose with
Wade Hampton , of South Carolina. All
war difloroQces seemad to bo wiped out ,
and Incidents of the rebellion wore re
vived and cHncusncd with great interest. "
Speaking of the order of President I
Cleveland , ordering tha taking down of \
fences from the public lands , Senator
Mandurson said that ho dldnot think that
the cattle Interests of this alato would bo
seriously Bli'jctad thereby. Tno now or
der > ho would undoubtedly give Ne
braska ttockmcn a chuico to buy cattle at
very Ion pricoa from the Ohorokoo strip
VIol land. Ho was of the opinion that
national legislation ought to allow the
lands of each western state and territory to
llo under supervision of a commission
which should determine the lands which
were fit for settling up , and tbi'JW them
open I for Immigration. These lands not
immediately available for arable purposes
CE , could bo uted for ranch purposes on
such tenns that the lesco could bo cancelled -
celled upon six months notice. Such a
state of atl'ilrs , ho thought , would bo ben-
eficlrxl not only to Nubraska , but to other
cattle grazing states and territories in the
Senator Manderspn loaves to-day on a
four weeks somi-otiiclal visit of inspection
to Utah , Montana and Idaho , and to the
Yellowstone park , as a member of the
senate commlitaa on territories.

Milan ( Term. ) Exchange.
By invitation of Col. Christian , her
jgont and manager , Dr. Henderson ,
Dapt. Moore , V. L. Ware , E q , and the
adltor of the exchange , yesterday wit
nessed a private exhibition of Mrs. Colo-
nan's marvelous power over animate and
Inanimate objects. She is an attractive ,
refined : , amlablo and handsome lady , in
ho prime of lifo , and altrgother a moat
iharmlDg person to meet in the parlor or
public. She was born In Franco , but
onio to Amotic * trhcn an Infsnr , oud
jai lived ten or twelve years in Nash-
rltlo and Atlanta. A little more than
mo year ago she discovered that she poa-
osed the romirkabla powers that Miss
julu Hurst has , and on trial convinced
ho publio that her talent , force of dec-
rlcity , or whalovor the mysterious pos-
cssion is , waa oven greater than that of
H'BJ ' Huist. Dr. Henderson and the
ither gentlemen , who witnessed and
ottod her strength , are unable to explain
but they are fu ly convinced thut she
an and docs perform everything she ns
dvertlsea to do. In our presence nsi
( easily llft ° d a chair on which ( to
apt ; , Moore ( who weighs 224 pounds )
, by merely pressing her handa
.gainst the chair poato. This writer took p
a chair , grasping It firmly , and press-
it Dgalnst hla body , She plac&d her I
3ft hand on the scat of the choir , and
right hand on its buck , when she had
all danciug around In a moment ,
nelly throwing ussprawliog over a trunk
ito another room , completely vanquleh-
. The other gontkmou tried ( ho same
xporlment , but none of them could
Uhstand her strength , end Captain
looro was thrown erjnnd like a child ,
four gentlemen also took the chair
, grasnlng it firm ly , and txerol tholr
tmost ) strength to press it to the iloor ,
lillo she merely placed her hands on it
hold it up in the nlr against their-
nited alrangtn , without fatiguing her in
Joast. Each gentleman took a strong
ick and proeed ono end ou the ibor ,
irjwlng his weight en it and trying to
3ep it tlioio , She merely preetcd her
nds against the sides of tno atlck and
isllv raised it up against the man. An-
her remarkable test was Trhen Captain
core held an umbrella Iu his hands ,
hilo she stood balonojd on ono foot and
acoi her hands against the umbrella ,
pushing i his whole strength and great
clfjht against her , without throwing her
her balance. She will probably ro
sin in Milan several weeks.
