Chinese Section IHcu at Iloek Springy
Wednesday uight , ahotit eleven
o'clock , a mob of white
men attacked the section house
nt the old town of Hock Springs , about
three miles from the mining camp that
bears the name. The house was tilled
With Chinamen , about thirty in number ,
who are employed as section men. The
attacking 'party raised terrorizing shouts
and firing'jrv.f6vy pistol 6hot in the ait-
began 8nty/jl\iug / \ tjio , windows with slicks
nnil stoned Tlio ' Chinamen in
alarm Ijod the scene and took
'refuge in { lift'mils. After making a wide
detour they came into camp this morn
ing , all in a most wretched condition
after a night of half-clad exposure in tlio
chill weather which now prevails there.
The authorities and remaining : military
wcro informed but were unable to dis
cover the identity of the rioters. These
arc mippo.scd to bo some of the striking
Miinera who are barred out ,
from work andyot loiter about the toiyn.
Their purpose is evidently to terrori/.o
the coolies so that they will gladly leave
the region. Efforts will be made to fer
ret out and punish all parties concerned
in the outrage.
The mini's at Hock Springs wore stead
ily operaled yesterday and elsewhere at all
point.s where order lias previously been
'Tlio | ) eiuourato ! Primaries.
The democratic primaries passed oft"
very quietly lasv evening. There was no
bloodshed no clash of warringfaetions.
Indeed , but little interest was taken in
the result , and life allair caused scarcely
a ripple of excitement on the placid sur
face of political waters.
The reader , glancing over the list of
delegates selected to attend Saturday's
convention , ns1 printed below , will per
haps have Mil HI trouble in determining
the exact lines of the coming conlliet
or the probable issue thereof. It would
Ecom that 1'at Ford is the probable nominee -
ineo of the convention for sheriff. His
.friends are certainly making strong
claims in that , direction , and lord him-
Helf is po.-Uivo that ho will .securo the
nomination. "Von bet 1 will get it"
ho was heard to remark yesterday , "and
il 1 get ( ho nomination you may depend
upon it , I'll gel the ollico. " A-prelty well
posted democrat who had scriitini/cd
carefully the | list of delegates selected
from each ward , and had surveyed the
situation pretty thoroughly , unbosomed
himself to a reporter to say this :
" 1 think I am pretty safe in predicting
hat. the convention will nominate the
following ticket : Uenokc for county
clerk , ! ! , F. Mudsen for Ireasuror.O'Keollu
for commissioner , Drexel for coroner ,
ami For * ! for shcriu" . .Mark my word ,
and sco If the prediction doii't come
trim. "
It wns amusing to note the expression
dieted from the Itoyd democrats and the
Morton-lirown mon when the question
"will the Hoyd-Millor-Morton light cut
any liguro in the county convention } "
was sprung by a reporter.
Tlio follow ! ng utterance of a prominent
Drown-Morton man , well posted enough
to know whereof ho speaks , may bo taken
aa representative ;
"Tho issue you speak of will Imvo just
tins much bearing : Wo have made no
light U ) put Ilrown-Morton delegates into
the convention , but Imvo allowed Mr.
lloyd to send his own henchmen. This ,
at least , iA' the ease in the llrst , fcceond ,
third and . fourth wards. Now that wo
have , allowed them to control the
primaries , wo * lml | allow them to
Dominate their 'own ticket , aiid to elect

On thu other Imml , tlio Hoyd men , who

Ji'ovtvr "wo JJoyd mon haven't tried to

Two Children . \lnliicle.l.
Two young lads , sons of ( "harles Allen ,
of this city , were forcibly abducted from
their place of residence on North Six
tccnth street last evening , and arc sup
posed to have been taken from the city.
The facts in the ease , as reported last
evening , are about as follows : Cbarle
Allen was some time ag > granted
divorce from hi.s wife and given the cus
tody of his children. After the cotipl
had separated Mrs. Allen became a com
mon prostitute , and has been living it
Omaha most , of the time since. Mr
Allen at , lirst kept his two boys willi him
boarding at the Knimel. house , but finally
put them in charge of a lady living 01
North .Sixteenth street , where. Ihev him
been living until last night. Durin < ,
tlie evening a lady called at the houm
anil asked to see the two boys
saying she was a friend o
their mother's , and had brought them t
present. As soon us they appeared , how
ever , she quickly sci/.ed the youngest , o
the ( wo in her arms and taking the othei
by the shoulder , hurried them out on the
street. She quickly placed them in ;
carriage standing near by and drove rap
idly away.
The woman with whom the children
had been staying ran after them as rap
idly as possible , but soon lost sight ol
them. She then proceeded to the Kmmci
house , where Mr. Allen boards , to in
form him of the matter. Mr .Allen , how
ever , was not in town , and is not as yet
informed of the loss of Ins children
Some of bis friends at the hotel , when in
formed of Ihe abduction , endeavored U
trace the woman , and found that , she had
gone directly to the depot with the inten
tion of takingtlio Denver train. Whether
she did so or not is unknown. She i.s
supposed lo boMr.Allen's divorced wife ,
but why she should desire to steal the
children is a mystery , as she is said to bo
leading an abandoned lifo. Something
new will probably bo developed in Iho
case when Mr. Allen receives tlio intelli
gence of his loss.

Tlio above is the statement made by
Mrs. Henry in her address lust evening
at the Davenportstreet Methodist church
"What is the worth " The
on boy ? state
ment , tlio lady said , was based on care
ful calculations which she had made dur
ing years of experience in providing for
her own family of fatherless boys.
The cause which had led her to figure
up the cost was a remark which had
been made to her by a business man while
she wis : engaged in the tcmjierauco
work. The gentleman had said : "You can
never make a success of your work until
you can prove there is as much
money in temperance as there is
in whisky. " In order to convince
him that there was a big balance
in favor of temperance , she had inado
the calculation , which , she assured her
hearers , was none too high. She illus
trated her point by drawing a word pic
ture of two young men. One had wasted
his energies in the saloon , paying' bis
revenue to his country by drinking
liquor , and finally landing in the gutter
or the prison. Tlio other husbanded his
energies , exerted himself to improve all
his opportunities , and became a respect
ed member of society. Place the two in
a balance and which is worth the most ?
Ono isa wasted life , absolutely worthless ,
while the other id a living monument of
solid worth ,
The saloon , Mrs. llcnry said , is a
traitor to ( lie home , the nation and the
church , The boy , with all his worth , is
waylaid by it , corrupted , and finally rob
bed of all that is good. And yet the law
upholds tlio institution just as much as
It docs the church and the home.
At the ehifO of Mrs. llenn 's remarks
i prayer was offered by Kev. Mr Dot-
iviler and tlio congregation was 'dis
missed. The address was most interest-
ng and was listened to with close attcii-
: ion by the audience present. Mrs. Henry
, vill speak again tlii.s evening on the sub-
ect ol "Tho Unanswered Prayer. "

gambling house in Omaha , although cor

is time to know what , men will do nnd to
know how much they "dont lose" for
placing Waterloo precinct , before the
convention in a false light. Thank
Heaven , ( lie primary poll books show
democratic votes enough to represent
their majorities , and the same names are

There are various ways of making a
livelihood. Ono of the most pleasant ,
withal profitable , is that practiced by a
couple of young men now in this city ,
who are artists in the line of "instantan
eous photography. " They curry with
them , from place to place , a fully-
equipped camera , capable of turning
out pictures by the "dry process. " They
go into a residence or business liou-c
and offer to photograph the building , o
its occupants , or both , free of cost , will
the understanding that if Ihe pictur
suits , a do/.en or so of thorn are to bo
purchased. The process takes bin
