Nat Goodwin loft yesterday with

as fast us it could be brought from Col.
Floyd's to his dressing room. The ell'cet
of his potations was very perceptible in
his acting ; his speech was jiift
a trillo uncertain , he had
but the energy to change his costumes
oxccpt when it was peremptory and
under hty orders details were chopped
out. songs expedited and dialogues cut
to their utmost brevity. After the show
closed , the great comedian primed to
the proper elevation of spirits wont out
to e/rip the tiger's tail ami frescoe the Ne
braska metropolis with the most im
proved hues. Ho struck lligglns1 estab

reputation for danger ; ho wins big when

The comedian had * about $ ' . ' ,000
in pocket , lie set in from the lirst with
his usual slashing game , playing yellows
and blues at from -f'5 to $50 a risk. It
was about midnight when lie commenced
and at two o'clock , after varying for

United Presbyterian Synod.
The sessions of the United Presbyterian
synod yesterday were as usual largely at'
tended. The day was devoted to botli
business and pleasure , and the comhina <
tion of the two worked admirably to-
The morning session opened with
the usual devotional exercises.after which
considerable business was transacted be
fore the noon hour. The synod then ad
journed in a body to the parsonage , ad
joining the church , where the ladies of
the congregation hud spread an excellent
repast. Alter thoroughly discussing that
branch of the work , the sixteen carnages
provided by McCaguo liros. were loaded
with the ministers and their wives and
the ride about the city began.
The route laid out was to drive out
Sherman avenue , returning on Saunders
street to Cuming , then west on Cuining ,
mid turning south to Ilanscoui park.
From the park the party was driven to
Farnam street to obtain a view of the
court house , and then a ride was taken
through the business part of the city ,
after which they returned to the
church to resume business. The
ride was a most enjoyable
one. The residence portion of the city
was much ddmired by the visitors , as but
few of them had seen that part of Omaha
before. The thouglitfulness on the part
of the Messrs.McCaguo not only resulted
in giving lit ; delegates an enjoyable
drive , but itMvill also bo beneficial to the
city In more ways than one.
The session was resumed at ,5 o'clock ,
Rev. W. \Vainriglit delivering a short
but tolling address on the claims of the
American Bible society.
The special committee on Monmouth
college reported that institution in a
flourishing condition , and recommended
that the synod continue to give it the
heartiest support , A similar report was
made in reference to the theological tern-

The evening session opened with a
report of the eommittOfe on temperance ,
as follows :
Whereas , The subject of temperance Is oao
In which the church always has a lively anel
abiding interest ; and ,
Whereas , The trallic In Intoxicating liquors
as a beverage results In intemperance , with
nil Its attendant evils ; therefore , resolved :
1 That we , as a synod , reaffirm previous
declarations In favor of the entire prohibition
of the manufacture and sale of Intoxicating
liquor * .
3 That wo favor the strict enforcement of
all laws having as their object the restriction
and prohibition of the sale of intoxicating
liquors as a. beverage.
Resolutions were adopted thanking the
people of Omaha ami the local church
lor their hospitality in entertaining the
delegates , and McCaguo BreJs. for their
liberality and tliougbtfulness in giving
the synod the afternoon drive.
An excellent address was delivered by
Rev. U , II. Barnes , of Tarkio , Missouri ,
on the subject of "Interpreting the Hand
of God in Providence. "
A case of appeal from the presbytery
of Kookuk was then taken up , which
lasted until a late hour , when the synod
Stock Yards Exchange.
The proposed site of the exchange
building at South Omaha has assumed a
very lively aspect. Teams are still at
work finishing the _ excavations , while
workmen are opening trendies for the
foundations. The brick and lumber arc
being hauled to the spot and two shanties ,
to bo need by the carpenters and for
storing limo , have been erected. The
brick work has been let to Mills &
Delaney end the wood work to J.
Douglas. Mcrccll & Rosonzwoig have
contracted to do the painting. The iron
work will bo done partly by Virling of
Chicago and partly by Schcorpe & Kolccn
of St. Louis. The building as planned
will be 58x150 feet and threes stories with
mansard roof , which is equivalent to four
stories. The tower will be 80 feet iu height.
The estimated cost when complete is 10-
000. It is impossible to describe the style
of the building , but it inclines toward the
Queen Anne , anil will bo very imposing
in appearance. The groujid iloor will bo
occupied by the Stock Yards Co. , and
they will nave very complete olliccs.
There will also be a barroom , a dining
room , and back of that a kitchen and
laundry , ice box'es , etc. Tliobankingde-
partmcnt will bo on the second , or princi
pal Iloor , which will also contain the pri
vate business offices , sixteen in number.
A corridor runs through the center of
the building with outside approaches at
both ends , and a balcony , ovof two hun
dred feet in length , extending around the
south and cast sides.
The third floor has a corridor running
through the center the same as the second
end , and is divided into twenty-eight
sleeping rooms. The fourth Iloor will
contaiu-tliirty sleeping rooms. The bank
ing department will be leased to the
same banking firm , and the same way
with tiie hotel department. In front of
the building n drive is being gratlcel
across the low ground to tlio main road.
A bridge has been built ever the crook
ami a dam is being constructed that will
form a hike of several acres , the drive
way making a very substantial embank
ment to hold the water. This will give
( ho company a good water supply for
I ho yards and in winter furnish an un
limited quantity of excellent ico. When
the improvements are completed the
stock yard's company will have some
thing to bo proud of.
Bishop Worthington is having plans
prepared for three new cathedrals to bo
built in his diocese.
One of these is to bo put up in North
Omaha , in Lake's addition , and will cost
iibout-$10,000. It will be of the Norman
style of architecture and is to bo con
structed of brick. Thu dimensions of
thu ground plan are ( iOxll'J. There will
bo a largo Normuu tower on the south
east corner and a smaller one on the
opposite corner , cloister connecting
the two. There will bo a rose window in

somely gotten up , while in the north end
there will be three chancel windows ,

A Female Knlfer.
Mrs. Ilclleu .Barrett , her head swathei
In a bushel of ragsj mid a doleful look ii
the ono eye which she permitted to peoi
through the folds of bandage , came uj
to the city yesterday from the stock
yards. Shu want straightway to Justice
Seldcn's Thirteenth street court , ami
there lodged complaint against a certain
Mrs. Siinchczoy for felonious assault ami
battery. Mrs. Barrett says that Mrs ,
Sanohe/.ey is the owner of the
latest shebeen put up in
thu growing precincts of South
Omaha. Yesterday afternoon , while the
two were engaged m a neighborly quar
rel , Mrs. Haiiehe/.ey assaulted the com
plainant with a big knife ami sliced her
face across the nose and mouth , cutting
her lips to rags and tearing out two tooth.
Even now Mrs. Barrett has twonfy-soven
stitches in her face and a lattice work of
flaming cut.4 spread ever her visage , M >
that she looks more like a cracked doll
than the "daoont , pacoful leddy" she
claims to be. A constable was sent out
to arrest a female Howie.
STAllUKD WITH A TUTU.
Another account of the story is that the
two ladies met in a store , and Mrs. Bar
rett demanded that Mrs. Sanohcxoy pay
her.f,1) which shu claimed was owing
her. Mrs. Saiiohe/ey denied the debt ,
and then both ladies indulged in a war
of words , calling each other- various pet
names. Finally Airs. Sanchexey struck
Mrs. Barrott with her hand , ami s-cvoral
blows were interchanged. The latter
lady then invited the former to step out
side the store ami light it out. This was
agreed to , but once outside Mrs. Barrott
scoured a heavy shillolah and ' struck
Mrs. Sanche/.oy a number of blows , driv
ing her into the store. Again the latter
lady ventured out into the street , and
again was she attacked with the club.
Slio ran for the store a second time , and
as she entered she picked up a heavy
stick , and wheeling quickly -truck her
pursuer over the bond , inflicting the in-
mries of which mention is made above.
Both women then ran through the town ,
lighting as they ran , antl would undoubt
edly have made mincemeat of each other
if they had not been separated by , .J. A.
Carroll. The South Omaha boys declare
the light a draw.
A AVtininn'.N Story.
Sir. Stenbcrg was called upon yesterday
morning by a woman , who , weeping bit
terly , sought him to issue a warrant for
the arrest of her son , Charles. ' .She gave
her name as Mrs. 'Hart , resident on
South Thirteenth street. Her storv was
jo the effect that for years she had boon
in fear of her husband and the POUS. who
latterly seemed leagued against her to
abuse ami ill-treat her. She claims that
her oldest son has been particularly
iibusivo to her and exhibited an ugly
spot on her head , where ho had struck
lier. " 1 have slaved and toiled for
my husband and my children
for years , " she said , sobbing , "and this
is all I get for it. .1 have tried to do all
I could .for my 'boys , and give them
livcrything I could ; but they treat me like

At Carbon , Wyoming , and Louisville
Col. , the men employed in thu Union Pa
eific mines btruek yesterday morning
When the opening hour of the day ar
rived not n man was on the scene , ant
throughout the day the mines rematnet
The lirst intimation of the Mrlkt
reached Union Pucilic headquarters in r
telegram from D. O. Clark , at Carbon
stating that not a man had appeared foi
work at the mines , and , although it was
not positively known to bo the caso.il
was believed that the men laid oft'on or
ders from tho. Knights of Labor head
quartern at Denver. This message wiu
followed by .similar intelligence from
Louisville , Col.
During the forenoon , when the ani
mus of the miners' proceedings was un
known , Mr. Calhiway , in response to a
query for his opinion of the strikers' pur
poses , expressed himself \ given in the
interview in last evening's issue of the
Uit : : . as follows :
"To cut oil' our coal supply. They
don't intend to create a disturbance but
they will conspire to bring us to terms by
Mopping our coal. Do 1 think they can
succeed * Rather not ; wo must have
coal and if the di.sturbiiig element does
not oome to time in short order we will
put iu a substitute force. However. I
must understand what they want in this
instance before I can speak definitely. "
This view of the situation , if sincere at
the time of its utterance , was not adhered
to by the general manager when the facts
came to hand.
"Tin : CIIIKKSI : jirsT oo. "
Later in the day , lie received from the
men at both mining camps the otlieial
statement that local lodges of the Knights
of Labor had , at a mooting on the night
previous , passed resolutions that the men
.should not return to work until the last
Chinamun had been discharged from the
employ of the company ; that coolie labor
was , in the judgment of the order , fatal to
fair remuneration for labor and
that _ their employment by * the Union
Pacific company must ecaso.
HIOKIHC ! TKKATMr.NT.
It is barely possible that Manager Cal-
laway smiled when he road this ultima
tum , at least his immediate action was
Mifjlcienl to a smile a grim , very grim
smile. He straightway issued an order
for the closing ot both mines.
"Why , " said bo to the reporter last
evening , "if those fellows want to loaf
they shall have the elegant opportunity.
Wo shall close tho.iii mines and keep
them shut all winter if necessary. "
TI1K liOAU'fi MINKS.
It is the evident policy of the .Union
Pacific management to carry out the
light on the firm principles which
Mr. Calhiway declared at the com
mencement of the diflioultles. The road
is independent o.f its supply from the
two mines which are located
at Louisville. and Carbon. The
coal camps belonging to the com
pany are little .short of one hundred in
number , chief among which are Uock
Springs , Almcda , Brass Creek nndGun-
"It.will prove n bard job , " said a
Union Pacific ollicial last night , "for any
strike to shut us out of coal. At Itoek
Springs for instance , which wo only work
at a fractional capacity , wo can 'double
the force and turn out from
IfiO to 200 oar loads every day.
Aside from this wo have good
veins opened , but not under opera
tion , at innumerable points through
western Wyoming and in Colorado. The
mines now'closeilcan remain so for ever
and aye , as far as the absolute require
ments of the road are concerned. "
THE TWO STUIIUNT CAMl'3.
Carbon is situated on the main line of
llm Union Pacific in Wyoming , about
eighty miles west of Cheyenne. There
are five hundred minors in the camp , all
whites , and the community is almost en
tirely made up of these ami llieir fami
lies. These mines were the scene last
December of trouble , almost of the fcamo
uharactcr as the present , and was settled
ipiictly through the intervention of Mr.
Louisville is in thoColorado mountains ,
mi the Colorado Central railroad , about
100 injles from Denver. There are about
. ' 00 miners and their families there.

An Auditing lloss.
Through a casual leak , n new pchcmo
of the Unlon.Paeific , which has not ycft
seen the light of print , nor is yet , for limb
matter , fully formed , was discovered by
ft HIK : reporter yesterday.
The leak has ueen just large enough to
set a rumor afloat , mid that rumor is to
the ofl'eet that Krastus Young , the prcs--
cut auditor of the roadis to bo .superseded.
Such , however , is not the case , buh
the fact that Oliver W. Miuok , of JJoa-
ton , is tc be appointed comptroller of thu
company and have complete supervision
of the accounting department. The details -
tails which will attend this now depart
ure are unknown , but it is believed thati
the present condition of alTairs in the
auditing department will not bo changed ,
Mr. Minck has been and is now assist

A llallroail Ijonsc.
Hy reference to the telograaphlo eel
limns it will bo scon that the Union Pa
cific has leased to the Missouri Paclllo the
Central branch of their line. The Icaso
is said to run for twenty-live years. This
line of the Union Pacifio extends west
Avard from Atchison. Kansas , a couple of
hundred mlles , dividing into throii 4
branches , ono of which runs into Lenora ,
one to Stookton and ono to Burr Oak.
J'ho pice of property is ono of thn most ;
valuable controlled by the Union I'aellio.
covering a fertile territory which is being
rapidly opened up. It is rumoredon , the
New ork stock exchange that the lease
is made to .secure the Missouri Pacifio an.
outlet to Denver.
