Monday night saveral pullcomon and
ether subalterns felt thai tholr ilmo had
eomo , and many wore the walls which
fchoy gave utUranca to. The city coun-
oil mot and the matter was brought up by
Mr. Ullllngsloy , who offered a resolution
that the council appoint a committee to
Investigate charges of corruption and
fraud on the part of pollcomon. The
committee was appointed by the mayor ,
and consisted of BilllngtUy , Dalley and
Dean. The Investigation will doubtless
provo o bigger farcu than the jail do >
Thin la putting it on protly thick to bo
inre. It U ( seldom tlut the
BEK indnlgco In poetic comparisons ,
bat a few llnca from Wudsworln
atrlkca tha nltiutltm no well that they uro
given :
"Groat God , grant that every eceplred child

Who cries jjreaumptiouj , 'Hera the Hood shall

Hay In its prc&reji sea thy guiding hand ,
And ceaja his acknowledged imrposo to with-

Or , Hwopt in nngor from the intuited shore ,

Ills honor IB nuking a desperate fight
against public opinion and putting on a
bravado equal to that of 'Tho ncouturcd
child of clay , " bat the true conduct of the
poliso will oartaluly oomo out , not In tha
"Investigation" nh'ch ' the mayor has In
augurated , but from other sourcoa. Hla
honor took occasion to compliment the
police for it3 noble ouduoS during the
atato fair week , nud tliq tafty thus admln-
istored tall upon the police gathered iu
the room like riin dropi on an arid soil.
An csprceston of fillet sprtai over their
countenances which was bcautlfal to cou-
BlllingBlcy , tha clnlrmiu of the invos-
tipfation cjtnmlttco jnat appointed ,
nmllcd benignly over his desk at the
reassured coppers as it to say ,
"Boys. you have nothing to
fear from mo , " and things assumed
the aspost of a love feint. Mayor Burr
suld that the police force of Lincoln was
ono of the finest iu the Gauntry , and
that cash moaibr'j individual conduct
during fair wesk wsa beyond reproach.
Ono gentleman who I/atoned / to tha pro-
ceodlngi said from the nature of things
aa represented by the mayor and ono or
two councilman , each policjnun was
justly entitled to a gold medal , which ,
bo would BUKgent , be struck oil Imme
diately. "There Is no money In the
city treasury to pay for them , " a aid
another man , which assertion struck with
such forao npon the advocate of medals
that ho left the hall , and was seen no
The jell delivery will also ba a subject
which will como before the commit tee.
It was pretty unanimously decided ,
however , Monday night tint any one ,
with a tooth-pick , could have got
through the twenty -four Inch stone wall
of the yacd in a very short time. "What
ire want , " Bald one child of innocence ,
"Is a boiler-Iron cell to put those
fellow a in. I bollevo this is the only
thing that will hold them. " The rest of
the gentlemen agreed with him , and
doubtless as eoon ai the money is raised
the cell will bo contracted on plans fur-
nlshod by Pen Oonrvlllo and his associ
ates. Ac a matter of fact there Is noth
ing the matter with the call from
which the men escaped , and with the
slightest eire they would all bo In custo
dy now , and some of them could have
been clvcn terms In the penitentiary.
"Yes , " eald Councilman Billiogil.'y ,

/unormott dregs. The Investigation will

mittee will issue subpoenas and ether

cait of features as ho utttrdd the 1 st
words , and hU eyes fluhod something
akin to fire. If the city jullor and hta
associates had boon on the ground cer

The DEB reporter had the pi emu re
Monday evening of a short conversation
with ono of the seventeen goutlemei
who escaped from the city jail and hlr

and anxious to enfold. It will bs given

Illchird Preston and I was raised in
Poihdolphia ot English parents , I have
worked Lincoln easier than ny place I
ever was In boforc , and would God no
Ironblo to operate here for any length of
time I might with to stay. "
Giving the gist of Preston's story it
wan about as follows : Daring hli early
childhood In Philadelphia ho became ac
quainted with Bovornl notorious crooks
there who have alvrajs beou classed BS
the finest workmen of their kind In the
United States , Under the tuition of
these export tutors Preston soon became
proficient in the art of lightening pockets
and did not confine his operations to
Philadelphia , bnt traveled all over the
country. In 1875 ha went to St. Louis ,
and for nearly a year was successful In
his operations among lonnpora In theatres
and ether public rororta. Ho was finally
caught In that city , but no specific ovl-
donoa being brought against him ho was
released after a shott term in the work
house for vagrancy. Sluca that tlmo
Preston says ho has traveled through
Now York , Maryland , Pennsylvania ,
Illinois , Iowa and the fairs ot Nebraska
and the wear. In company with
a confederate ho will go
on board a train , sits down Inn car di
rectly in front of the man ho wants to
work , and juot before the train Is to
leave will glva a sign to his partner , who
will got up and walk out on the platform.
During the time ho has seated himself
beside his intended victim , ho has learned
where that individual is going to. Ho
vrhlspors the Information to his confede
rate as lie walks through the car to the
platform. The confederate suddenly ap
pears at tbo door of the car and yolle ,
"All passengers change caw for Omaha , "
or some ether place as ho feels disposed ,
and in accaidanco with the des
tination of the person whom
they Intend to vlotimlza. Of eourio ,
npon hearing that ho Is in the wrong cir ,
the victim grabs his gripsack and makes
for the door. Mr. Preston b right
after him , and when ho gets to the door
tha confederate given the man a push back
aticl DS thla is done Preston deftly gooa
through the man's packets. A few years
ago Preston say a that while in Ohtcngo
the chief of police , who considered hlrn-
oolf prct'y fly , Invited him
out to ri.lo to Lincoln pirk. The chief
know that ho was crooked , and Preston
told him that bin TTOI k was sr > slick that
no Chicago police could catch him. The
chief denied this , and eald that ho could
find any man at any time or place who
naa crookod. Prestos , In a spirit of
banter , told the chief that ho could take
hla watch away from him before they got
to North Olark street , and ho did it
notwithstanding the chief had been
notified. *
Preston says his forte fa in working
hotels with "ontsidars" and other devices
to iet at the rooms of guests Holsnorr
quite old , and ho told the reporter that
ho would eoon have to give up the
busincDB as ho found that ho could no
longer gat around sufficiently to moat the
requirements of his crooked trade ,

A Veteran Talk * ,
As ( ho October days draw on apico
and political war clouds gather on the
horizons of both slate and county , the
veterans begin to lend the weight of their
judgment to the ( peculation which la
atattlng into life. Already the corners
have their evening rallies , the grocery
stores and "taverns" tholr all-day cssom *
Wages and oven the busy citizen halts a
moment to drop a word or obtain on Item
of advlco on the popular drift.
Omaha is not allowed tbo exsltomont
of being the scene of olthcr itito onvon-
tlon. The capital this year will bo per
mitted to enjoy the crowd and nolso.
Lincoln is certainly in a fair way
to have enough of it as the whole tur
moil of both conventions is centered
there within two days , Oatober 14th and
15th , republican and democratic. How
ever , the county fight will bo warm
enough in Douglas and the loaal popula
tion ncod entertain no apprehensions of
political stagnation while tno riot is on at
The democracy enters the campaign
with factional differences In Its ranks
as of yoro. The standards of Bojd-Mlllor
and Morton-Brown will bo Haunted on
the flanks , weakening the center as ever ,
perhaps. A spirit Dgalastlntor-partystrlfa
is growing among maoy members of the
democratic party in Onuha. These gen
tlemen , with a livelier Interest In the city
and county than In the otate , are desir
ous that the Issues of the quarreling fac
tions bo excluded from the local cam
paign. To that end , they suggest that
two primaries ba hold hero , ono for the
salootlon of county delegates and the
other for representatives at tbo atato con
vention. The county democracy , tboy
maintain , hni no Interests common to the
state patty and will bo only hampered
lytho Introduction of the UtUr's din-
Botittona. The 1 cul fight Is ono of can
didates wHlo the ntruggle in the alnto
convention Is upon the basis of personal
"What Is the IEOUO batwoeu the two
factions of the state democrats , " was
naked cf a prominent old timer who Is as
cnthuelaattcally for Morton and Brown

"Issue ? Yof , yes ; there must bo an
Issue between dlffdrencoa. Wh } , I don't

on the ether band , h the Morton repre
sentative in Douglas county. Yes , that
doss pretty neatly renolvo the situation
to a fight between rival champions , each
bickod by hla retainers and henchmen.
If you want to look at it In that li ht ,
it doeo seem strange that a crowd
will subserve with blind devotion
the ambitions of ono mm and that fac
tions will bo created whoso on y platform
is some big fellow's anxiety to "get there.
It is hard to tell how matters will wjtk
this yesr. Iu my jadgrncut our aldo hag
hadtho best of it all along. If you take
noticaof the federal appointments made
alnco the change of administration ,
you will see that the South
Platte chief has his collar on a
great majority of them. You see Boyd
made desperate efforts to secure on ofiica
within the party which might be called
the chairmanship cf the patronage com
mittee. la that high station ho could
have worked hla point by currying the
Eivor of the ontlro democracy and put
ting the whole lot at his back. But
wo boat him at h'a own tsatloi , I rather
believe. This war of factions is so bitter
and so foreign to real pnblic Interest that
I hope it can bo kept ont of the county.
In a general primary the quarrel would
be spread over all , and the glvo and take ,
buy and sell prccess might give us local
candidates unfitted and not popularly de
sired for the offices which they aropnt Into
the field to attain. This would provo
disastrous to the county democracy ,
which will need every atom of its avail-
ab'o strength to make a showing , and I
therefore hope that two primaries will be
hold. "

are In every ciso anonymous. They are

"No , I can't ' tell you why they should
want to arrest me for this thing , " Bald
the doctor to D reporter. "I
know nothing about the robbery
of this man Jonoson. But I do know
something of the msn who robbed him.
On the day of the robbery a man came
to mo and asked me what I would glvo
him for a lot of diamond jownlry that

noon. That same morning I went to a

of any one having any diamonds to sell. I
told him yesand dotcribed tboto which had
boon offered to me. Bo immediately told
me that tbey must belong to Jonaaen , aud
t gether wo went and o lied upon that
gentleman. I told Mr , Jonasen that I
would help him to find hla jewelry , and
with his detootiVd Iioncooted a scheme
by which be waa to watch the ( illoe until
thodiarnondthief shouldreturn. Both * did
not turn up that day , probably having
been scared off. SInca that time I have
