The Democratic I'rlmnrlefl.
Tlio contest nt the primaries yesterday
afternoon was by all odds the most ex
citing fight that has ever taken place in
the democratic ranks In this city. It re
minded one of the old times when the re
publicans indulged in factional lights
and nnihtered twice as many voters as
there were members of the parly. The
mnchlne , of coum' , had the Inside from
the start , owing to prestige ntid patron-
ngo. Jt had the police , lire department ,
the grading contractors , the pavers and a
big campaign "bar'l. " The Lord always
JlRlits with battalions , and he was on tlio
Bide of Miller and lloyd this lime , ami no
The contest however was by no means
n one-elded light , as the Drown phalanx
fought with a good deal of bravery , and
"wnoopc.d her up" almost even unto
desperation against , the overwhelming
od < ls. Urown's brigade mustered a big
force In the' IMoody Third , " where Gen.
IJrown has made many a gallant light
liofore , with Hessian auxiliaries It was
almost n pitched battle , and the anti-Mil-
leritcs louglit nobly even if they were
done tip brown.
An incident occurred in the eminently
respectable Fourth ward that was of
rattier a i-ensatiniial character , and
which showed that an attempt was made
to introduce .South Calolina methods
into Nebraska politics. Itefore the
balloting began the followers of IJrown
charged that the box had been
lulled. It was accordingly investigated ,
and sure euoiiirh ll was found full
of machine tickets. The stuffing was
knocked out of that ballot-box in short
order. There were 400 votes easl in this
ward , wlule it is a fact that lltere are not
more than 1IUO democrats in the ward.
It naturally follows thai some republican
recruits vtcre enlisted in the war , or else
democratic repeaters got in their work in
great Hhaiic The majority for the Hoyd-
Miller ticket in Ihis ward was , however ,
the smallest of any in the city , there bo"-
ing only thirteen more ballot.s cast for it
than for the opposition. It was a close
call for the mayor and his men , and they
fully appreciated the situation. Atone
tlnio it looked as if defeat was surely
staring them in the face , and both sides
fairly fiew in their efforts to shove in
In the second ward a burly policeman
is said to have been the chiet inspector
and boss of the primary. Marshal Cum-
Tilings wants it distineUy understood that
ho is not responsible for the the jiolicc-
man's services on this occasion , even if
lie was oil' his beat.
The result throughout the city was in
favor of the Miller-Hoyd double back-
action machine.
The convention will be held tins after
noon , and in the evening there will prob
ably be a picnic on Harncy street , where
the bosses do business.

The directors of the board of trade
hold a meeting yesterday afternoon ,
and resolved to submit to the board a
proposition to issue to each member a
bond for $100 , for the purpose of furnish
ing funds to finish the foundations for the
proposed new building this fall , the
amount to be called for as needed.
At a meeting of the board last evening
it was moved and carried that the board

A resolution was submitted by Col.
Chase that a committee of five be ap
pointed by the president of the board of
trade to take under consideration tlio ex
pediency of organising a chamber

milieu report at an early day , and if they
deem it best to organize such a body ,
they suggest in such report the best
method of ellecting such organization.
The resolution was adopted , and Col.
Chape , 11 G. Clark , G. C. Ames , J. F.
Sheedy and John Kvans were appointed

A Quiet ConvcrHiit ion Itatwccn Tny
Gould and Church Itowo.
'Howe are you Churchy" said Jay
Gould to the Neinalia statesman yester
' lam doing quite well , my old Jay
bird , "said Howe , in the most familiar
manner as he slapped the Wall street
king on the .shotililor and shook hands
with him.
"How are matters and things out here
in Nebraska anyhow ? " inquired Mr.
"I have got everything in good shape , "
said Mr. . ' '
Howe. 'Hverything looks bright.
1 am playing it fine on the nnti-monop. "
"lly the w.iy , how is this railroad com
mission workin r ? "
"Like a charm. Just elegant. Just as
if it was made to order. It was a neatly
put up job. I had work to yet it through.
But she's a daisy. You can depend on me
as long as the Missouri Pacific will stand
by me. "
"I'll tee to that. "
"But it must be kept , on tlio q. t. that 1
am in with you. You know I am a rip-
roaring anti-monop for the novt season.
1 am for the old man I mean Van Wyek
for all there is in it. "
"Do you really moan it ? "
"Of course , J am in with him until T
see a good chance to trip him up and
bounce him overboard. Don't you target
it. I am no spring chicken. "
"How about your going to congress ? "
"I am keeping that little scheme in
the background for the present. But
the outlook is first-rate for my nomina
tion. "
"I'll sec you later , " said Mr. Gould , as

The Xew - .
District Attorney Estelle arrived in the
city yesterday after attending court , the
past month in Burt and Washington
counties. He informed a reporter for the
BEI : that in all probability ho would
commence the work of the criminal
t crm of court in this county , next week.
"How will the law abolishing the grand
jury work , think you ? " wa.s asked of Mr.
" 1 cnn hardly tell yet , but I believe it
will operate satisfactorily. Yes , 1 al
ready nave two or three men in the pen-
jtentiary whose cases have been brought
into the district court on criminal infer
mations tiled by me. There is one thing
to bo said in favor of the
old grand jury system , nnd
that is that one knows just what evidence
lie has to rest his prosecution upon before
ho commences the case , because most of
( lie evidence is brought before the grand
jury before the indictment is filetC On
the other hand under the new system I
have some trouble in knowing liefore-
hand just what evidence to rely upon.
About the only wty ; in which 1 can post
myself thoroughly is to attend tlio pre
liminary examination. Hut , on the whole ,
tin : new plan is much preferable to the
old. Jt is more expeditious , Jess cumber
some , less expensive.
There is not as much criminal business
to be disposed of this year , as there was
last , the cases taken Irom police court
being considerably less.
The following are the cases now in tlio
hands of District Attorney Estello which
have come up from the justice and po
lice courts , on which information is to be
tiled :
Omaha , appellee , vs'William A. Smith ,
appellant , failure to run street ears.
State vs Thomas O'lJriun and James
Manning , 'rand larceny.

State vs Mulhall , peace warrant.

whether or not to allow the jwrsons pro-
flouting such affidavits to vote. Further.
more , lie said , this motion to throw out
the affidavits was not according to law ,
because if granted , it would onoralo to

case was reached for trial.
Judge McCulloch has reserved his de
cision , which will be rendered in a day
or two.
mi : .
There wore eighty-three different ex
cuses for not registering recorded in the
affidavits. Some of them are extremely
ridiculous. For Instance , ! 2)1 ( ) persons
applied for election affidavits , alleging
that they did not register because they
thought they were always registered.
Some other noteworthy excuses are ,
"Neglect" 131 , "Supposed he was regis
tered" S ! , "Forgot1' , "He told a fellow
lo register for htm" 1 , "Did not think he.
would vet until election day" 1 , "Did
not know the time of registration" Util
and so on ad nauseam. These excuses
and many others , it is claimed , an ; illegal
and the persons making _ then ; should
have been barred from voting.

A CuriouH Complication.
Hon. William Pitt Kellogg , of Louisi
ana , has been in the city for the past few
days , negotiating with Mr. J. II. Millard ,
and Mr. Guy C. Barton , for a transfer to
them of a portion of his property on Far-
mini street. This hind , as is pretty well
known , extends from F.irnam to Hartley ,
( including a small strip .south of Hartley )
and from Twenty-third street to a point.
about 150 feet east of Samuel Brown's
Some months ago Messrs. Millard'and
Barton ma cup their minds that they
wanted a suction of this properly. Nego
tiations were entered into to purchase
about one-third of it , the strip
fronting 118 feel wide on Fnrnam
and Twenty-third streets and running
( dear back to the western and southern
limits. The price agreed upon between
Mr. Kellogg and Ihe gentleman desirous
of purchasing the property , was $ : il,000.
Arrangements had been nearly com
pleted ] for the transfer , when it was dis
covered I by chance that thorn was a "lly
on ( the soiij ) " a fiaw in the title. Mr.
James ( ! . bobbed
I Chapman up serenely
II as I the claimant of a strip of the property
eight ( feet wide , and extendjng the en
tire I length , east and west , lying between
Farnatn ] street ami the bulk of tlio land
A reporter talking yesterday with
Mr. ii i O. F. Davis , agent of Mr. Kellogg ,
learned i that Ihe titl'air stood in this wise :
Nearly twenty-two years ago , .lames G.
Chapman , transferred to Mr. Kellogg the
property ] under consideration , conveying
and intending to convey , as is alleged ,
the entire section of land. The limits of
the property were plainly defined and un
derstood , it is claimed , and are still to bo
seen in the old platted record. This was
before Farnain street was opened to the
present limits. When that thoroughfare
was opened , there occurred a slight dis
crepaney of 8 feet between the original
recorded survey and the new survey. The
difference , which technically made Mr.
Chapman the possessor of the 8 foot strip
was not discovered until just the other
day. Of course as the matter stands at
present this will prevent Mr. Kel
logg from giving a clear. ti
tle to the property. Mr. Da
vis said that negotiations were on foot
looking toward an amicable settlement
of the affair. "The fact of the mailer is , "
he said , ' 'that Mr. Chapman intended to
convey to Mr. Kellogg the entire prop
erty , and Mr. K. has been paying taxes
upon the land for the past twenty-one
years. Mr. _ Chapman will , I think , be
induced to give a quit-claim deed to the
property , in order to make the title a
porlectly clear one. If , however , he is
inclined to light the matter , Mr. Kellogg
is determined to make it warm for him. "
' Yesterday Gen. Howard received a let
ter from Division Commander General
Scholield , of Chicago , which may ( level-
ope an interesting state of affairs relative
to the Sioux Indians in this department.
For some time past there have been
complaints thai the Sioux Indians of thu
Pine Jlidgo and Rosebud agencies have
been in the habit of leaving their reser
vations and committing extensive depre
dations in the territory surrounding those
points. These alleged depredations have
been committed in thn newly-opened up
country ol Dakota and Wyoming. Most
of the settlers have been in the coun
try but a short lime , nnd are
just getting a istart in life. These depre
dations , Mich as cattle-killing , horse-
stealing , hay-burning , etc. , annoy them
seriously , it is alleged , and to such an ex
tent thatthey desire the protection oil the
government from the foragers. .Fust how
many Indians there are on the expedi
tion , or c\acly ! what they are doing , the
advices do not state. It is understood
that those complaints have been coming
in for bomo time , from a variety of
sources , and that the government is de
termined to sift the mutter to the bottom.
Gen. Howard has telegraphed lo Mtij.
Ditwees , of Fort Robinson , to thoroughly
investigate the complaints , and make a
report thereon as soon as possible.
"Of course , wo can't toll just what
truth there is in these complaints , " said
Ass't. Adj. Gen. Hall to a BIK : reporter
yesterday. " 1 am Inclined to think that
home of these white settlers tire simply
seared , 1 do not anticipate any scrlmis
trouble with the Slouxs. If there should
be arr"tJII"l-'illty , however. 1 think our
Fort 'Robinson troop * il ! ! ' "vu uo

Col. Morrow , commandant at Fort
Sidney , has been having a dispute with
the saloon men of Sidney , as to whether
or not ho is entitled to sell beer at the
post without a lleciibo. Thn saloon men
at Sidney , who have been recently de
prived of the patronage of the soldiers ,
chum that their profits are soriottaly af
fected , and rcmoitstiate againsl the sell
ing of liquor to at the on the ground
that no license has been secured thore-

to Col. Morrow , asking him to Mop the
Milling of liquor us bmii" illegal and un
fair. I'ho matter has neon referred to
Col. Henry , acting judge advocate of the
department , and yesterday a decision was
rendered to the elfcet that Col. Morrow
was light and had a perfect right to Mill
beer or liquor to the soldiers at the post ,
Inasmuch as the stale had ceded to the
military Uio post i enervation , and all
rjghlH of government therein. This de
cision U quite an important one , : i/i it
must apply alike to all posts throughout
this department. CoJ. Marrow claims
that by thus having tluflle of liquor un

Adjutant General JJnim , writing , in
reference to the case qf Capt. Sladcn , tea
a certain gentleman in this city , is re
ported to have said that the captain Is
entitled to no immunity from the order
of the secretory of war on the score oi
his tvonnned leg , lieeiutsq ho had not re
ceived the injury in nuJUtjl service. This
may bo so , but it is nnnp the less true
that Capt. Sladeii received the injury
while acting directly in his line of duty.
He was stationed at Fort Vancouver
when the unfortunate accident occurred ,
and Vt as dashed by his horse against a
tree , while going out to meet a British
officer , ll might bo stated right hero
that this remark does not come with
peed grace from Adjutant General
Drum , who never served in a single bat
tle in the war of the rebellion.
Among tlu ; Mormons.
A reporter for the Bitfell : into conver
sation yesterday with Mr. .lames Olson , a
prominent citizen of Salt Lake city , nt ,
the Paxlon. Among other things Mr.
Olson expressed himself upon the feeling
among Mormons in Utah about the re
cent convictions for polygamy and un
lawful cohabitations. W. D. Newborn
and Frederick II. Hanson wore both tried
and convicted. The Mormons as a rule
are inclined to feel rather gloomy over
the result of the. trials , he said , as well
as highly indignant.tSomu express
themselves as being afraid that polygamy
my will receive a serious blow from'this
persecution , as they term it. A few seem
to think the Edmunds law will operate lo
banish polygamy altogether from the ter
ritory ; bul lite majority of them have had
their auger aroused to a ferocious pilch
and say they will fight , if neces
sary , for the lenets of their faith. Judge
Xane. who presided over he trials , he
.said , was being roundly abused by the
Mormon pulpit , press and people. The
Apostles are constantly ijroaeniiig ser
mons to their followers which tire lull of
treason to the government , urging their
listeners to make a linn stand against
their persecnlors. ' 'I shouldn't be at all
surprised if there were not.riot and blotitl-
j-hed in Utah before many weeks he said.
ll seems to me that trouble is brewing. "
It was learned at military head-qttar
lers yesterday that while no special
anticipation of trouble ju l at presjnt ,
forces are held in position .so that they
can be placed at Ihe governor's com
mand ut any motm nt.

Yesterday afternoon Jiiy Gould nml liN
party urrivcil in Onuiliu , in a special cur
over the Missouri 1'ncillu railway.
The jiarty consisted of the railroad
nuigntito , his BOH George , Kusscll
Sage , rapt. J.V. . Shockleftml , Mr. A. L.
Hopkhm , Dr. Munn , H. M. Iloxlo , first

C. 1) . WttrnirV. . \V. Fti-jan , division
minorintomlont , A. S. Kvcrcst , uttornoy ,
and W. U. Otiton , treasurer.
Mr. Gould was mot by S. II. II. Clark
at the di'pot , mid for about half an hour
the party was driven about the city in
carriage : ) , ufti-r which they returned to
the special train. In the evening , Mr.
Gould and soniu of the uu > mlu < rs of his
party went to the residence of Mr. S. 11.
Callaway , whuro they apent several
hours in a very pleasant way. This
morning , at 0 o'clock , the special train
will pull out for Kansas City.
Mr. Gould's visit to this city moans
nothing more nor less than a new road or
extension of the Missouri Pacific from
this fily into northwestern Nebraska ,
something that lias been needed for years
I/t t night this fact was ilrst exclu
sively announced in the. Hr.i : that Mr. S.
II. II. Clark had purchased either for
the. Holt 1/mi ! or the Missouri Pacilio
railway the old Taylor farm , two miles
out on the line of Lcavcnworlh street ,
paving for the twenty acres thereof the
Mini of $18,000.
It was also announced , as a surmise ,
thai this meant the projection by the
Missouri Pacific of a line into the north
west , and that the Missouri Pacific prob
ably intended to build a round-house ,
depot , etc. , on the plat. A reporter
questioned Mr. Clark about this in the
afternoon. " 1 can't tell yon anything
about the matter , " he replied. " 1 can
neither aflirm nor deny the report.
You had bettor MC Mr.Gould himself
about the matter. "
The reporter took Clark's advice , wont
down to Mr. Gould's private car , and
was accorded tin interview with the rail
road king.
"Mr. ( Pould , " was asked , "what is the
object of your visit to OmahaY"
" 1 am here , " I us replied , "on my regu
lar tour of inspection of the Miibouri
Pacific .syhtem. Mr. Sage and the ollieials
of the road came with mo simply as a
matter of pleasure. "
"It ib rumored that your road intends
to build a. line into northwestern Ne
braska , and that the purchase of the
Taylor farm was made oy Mr. Clark for
the Missouri Pacific , with aview to build
ing thereon a depot , round-house , shops ,
etc. "
"Well , I [ don't earo to open my
mouth on that Mibjcct. The ot-
Jicers of the road Intvo not fully
made up their minds what is the
best thing to do with any siiare money
that they may have on hand.Va shall
undoubtedly build some branch lines , but
jiust where 1 can't now say. "
"Do .you intend to improve the present
lines o'f the Mi * onri Pacific road ? "
"Yes , 1 fchall spend a great deal of
money on tins line of the road from here
to Kansas City , and shall make it in point
of general equipment , one of thcs best ,
roads in the country. Yes , from Omaha
we go direct to Kansas City and then
soutnward over the line of the Missouri ,
Kansas As Texas.
"I am ( surprised to see. the general
prosperity of this .state and this section of
the west , " continued Mr. Gould. " 1 can
say that 1 was astounded to note the
growth of your town since I was here
three years ago. 1 believe that Omaha
has a j ri'iil future before it , and that it is
boumrto become mm of the liveliest , and
mo.sL thriving cities in the wesl. "
"In what condition do you regard the
railroad affairs of this country as being ? "
"Well , all'aii'H have been in pretty
bad shape during the. past year or so ,
but . ( tar as I can read the .signs of the
times with reference to the great rail
ways of Ibis country there is a 'good time
coming. ' Kates are gradually being es
tablished in the cast , hiiMiicbs is swing
ing around to a goud basis , and I don t
anticipate any more railroad wars for a
time at least. To my mind the outlook
all over the country is encouraging. I
am inclined to feel that the railway
business as well as tint commercial in
terests of this land arc about l < i witness
an era of rare prosperity. Mo far as rail
roads are concerned , 1 leel a great deal
of confidence in the ability of tno trunk
line presidents to keep rates to the pay
ing point , now that they have beeomo
aware of the exigencies of the situation. "
"What do you think of the recent labor , Mr. Goiildr"
"I don't think , as I have repeatedly
said betore , that there should bn any
Mnkcion a railway , and 1 will tell you
why ; railway employes cannot prosper
unless ihi ) railway is prosperous ; to , cm
the other hand , a railway cannot prosiicr
unless its employes arc prosperous. This
inU-re-ts of both employer and employed
arc. mutual , I think the employe should
have the largest possible wages consist
ent with the ability of the road to make
expenditures. 1 don't think that the em
ployes of the road should demand larger
wages than the road can pay , and on thn
other hand 1 don't bnliuvo that a
road wlioiild M-uk to make
money at the expense of ( ho
intere'sts of the employed. Here is the
whole solution of the question. If its
principles were only remembered and
protected there would be no labor
troubles. "
Mr. Gould continued the conversation
some time , touching upon a variety of
topics , of general interest. lie refused
to answer the reporter's Inquiry , "Did
you lose , us reported , ifc'OO.OOU in the
'Smith failure on Wall htrect last weeky"
declining to thus give away hta private
business. His MM George , however ,
iiidiijjly : | suld that the report was pret
ty 'nearly ? ; : : - : but hu bald he guessed
tlio Gould family htm Cv"5" : : o y ' ,
live on , a while longer ,
Till : NOinilWKbfUl.V IWANVII.
It will be noted above that Mr. Gould
declined to express himself positively on
the plans of I lie Missouri Pacific relative
to the extension into Northwest Nebraska
kalint Mr. George Gould did. Ho in
formed a reporter that there was every
probability that the northwestern road
\\ould be 'built. The Taylor farm , ho
said , had been purchased by Mr. Clark
for the Missouri Pacific , and would
be used for the erection of
a depot and round house.
No hliops will bo built there
because for the present all rolling stock
for the Nebraska line could bo easily
supplied from the company's shops at
Sedalia , Mo. Mr Gould refused to enter
Into any particulars as to when or to
M lint terminal point tlio road was to bo
It is probable from nil that cnn bo
Gathered in railroad circles that the
Missouri Pacific intJiids to throw out n
line lo a point .tlitrhli.v noithwcxtof Ihi8
city , my to Madison , or West Point , or
Oakdale. nnd from there to throw out
feeders into far northeastern nnd northwestern -
western Nebraska. This , however , is all
inero conjecture , and must bo taken ns
such. There is nevertheless no rcn on
to doubt but that the long desired road
into northwestern Nebraska is an assured
fact. "You may just depend upon it that
vc arc to have that line , " said a man
well posted in railway matters to a re
porter lor tlio HIK : yesterday , "and it
won't be so very long either. Why ,
oven if there were no other
circumstance to lead'ino to believ'o ' this ,
I should think to from the fact that the
Missouri Pacific lias purchased this largo
tract of hind southwest of this city ,
twenty acres in e\tent. They certainly
don't want It for right of way. Jay
( Sonlil doesn't understand anything
about farming , there fort1 it must be for
the purpose of furn ! hing a site for
depots , i omul houses , etc. And what
would the M. P. want with these without
a liiii * into some portion of ( ho Mate in
all probability the northwest ? See ? "
