"People of nil ngos , " said tin

Showing tlnit this idea of tin ; text \vn' '

pointed ( int Unit the charily which coven
niiiH IB Christ , whoso intercession saves
us from the wnitli of f ! od. It is u curious
thing that in every paiigc of .scripture
the word "ChrUl" ean be substituted fet
that of charilyChrNtisclmrily , and It it
lie who c < i\i < rQur , sins. His acoounta-
blllty protect us from the results of our
evil dtM'dn. W.hon wo think of the many
which 'Chfhft will "cover" at thu
judginenl day , what must be our concep
tion of His love for us. Truly the great
love of Christ outstretches all the moun
tain of guilt.
Wo also can be the instrument of cov
ering the bins of our fellow man. God
may make us the humble instrument of
an erring fellow creature's conversion to
the truths of the go pol to shield , in the
grace of charity , the sins of a fellow man
from the divine sight. Sins ean be hid
den , but they can also be exposed. Wo
should bo careful , very , very careful ,
how we cxpovo one another's sins. Very
seldom should we uncover the misdeeds
of a fellow man , and then prayerfully ,
tenderly. H is the lowest ( alentto see the
wrong points in any ono's character it
is unworthy of any good heart to point
them out and discuss them. liclovcd ,
our mission , wherever we are , is to bo a
"coverer of sins. " If wo know anything
to the detriment of any one , let us keep
it silently , to be mentioned , if necessary ,
religiously , kindly , charitably. More ,
can we not be to tome poor soul a refuge
a hiding place where it may hide its
ehamo from the world ?
The bishop closed his sermon with the
earnest sumilicatfon that the grace of
charity migijt descend into the heart of
each one ot his listeners.
At Unllyjlast night , Rev W. E. Copeland -

There were probably 1,600 ov 8,000 people

"Mob him ! Mob him ! " were
taken up and ro'rchoed on all sides , and
a forward rnsllviis' made. Uy dint of

Was a Murder CommltlocM
Information readied police hcadquar
tors yesterday which bid the police to bo
llovo tliat a murder had been committee'
in this city Saturday evening. A well
known colored man came to the jai
curly in the morning and informei
Roundsman Mat/a that the evening be
fore , while passing along Cuming street
he had overncard two individuals talking
in a low tone. Enough of then
conversation reached hiH oar ?
to nrou c his curiosity and
he accordingly secured a position neai
them where no could loiter without being -
ing discovered. From parts of the con
versation whieh ho heard ho gathered the
information that one of the men had
either seen a man killed or assisted in
killing a man on the river bottoms at the
foot of Grace street. Who the men were
that he overheard , the colored man was
unable to tell , as when he found out the
nature of their conversation lie quickly
left them , not caring to bo discovered
\\hilo acting as envcsdroppor for fear
that they would do him personal vie
On receipt of the information , Rounds
man Matzii , in company with Olliccr
RowlcH , went to the scone of the alleged
murder but was unable to discover any
traces of the crime. A careful search
was made of the whole neighborhood ,
and those living in the vicinity were
closely questioned. The information
was developed that a shot had been
heard Saturday niht , but as no disturb
ance followed it had not been investi
gated. Ignorance was professed as to
the cause of the shot or who fired It. It
had been heard , however , by nearly all
the residents , only one or two asserting
that no shot had been tired.
If a murder has been committed , the
police are very much myt > liicd ! as to what
has become of the body and how all
traces of the crime have boon so quickly
removed. The colored man wno in
formed the officers of what ho had heard
has 11 reputation for integrity and veraci
ty ; and undoubtedly told his story in
A. clew has been found winch , it is
thought , will clear up the mystery ; and
the otliccrs are now at worlc on the case.
Every endeavor will bo made to bring

are ) lo justice. _

Death of John U. Qiilnn.
A telegram received Saturday brongh
to his many friends in Omaha the sat
and startling intelligence of the death ol
John II. Quinn , Esq. , at the homo of hi1
parents in Davenport , Iowa. Death oc
currcd on Saturday morning at 1 o'clock
after a brief illness from diphtheria.
About two weeks ago Mr. Quinn ro
coivcd a telegram calling him homo tc
attend the funeral of a beloved sistei
who had died after a brief illness ol
tlm-o days. The shock was a terrible
one to him. Diphtheria had taken hold
of almost every ono of Mr. Quinn's sis
ters and brothers , and a few d-'O-s nftet
the burial of the sister , a younger brother
was carried from the unfortunate home
to his last resting place. Days ol pa
tient watching at the bedsides of those
of his family who were atllieted was
more than John Quinn's delicate consti
tution could bear. Tim dread contagion
atlacked him , and after a few days of
hovering between life and death relict
from earthly cares came as abe ; e an
John II. Quinn was born in Davenport ,
Iowa , and was in his twenty-sixth year.
After attending the schools 'of his native
city , he wen.t through H course at the
Jesuit college at Capo Girardeau , Mo.
Ho then entered the ollico of Judge
James Grant , and after two years ot
study was admitted to thebar. A year and
a half ago he located in Omaha , and wa
steadily winning his way into an excel
lent legal practice. His uniform eourt-
csy , gentlemanly manners , quiet and
unassuming disposition , and abovn all
his purity of character and devotion to
his leligious faith , won for him many
warm and fast friends. The writer knew
and was an. intimate friend of John
Quinn from childhood , and among all
the associates of his youth he can point
to no one who has gone to - bis eternal
renting place with the unsullied reputa
tion that he left behind him.
The courts adjourned Saturday nt soon
as the intelligence of lys death' wan re
ceived , and the jiiomber7of the bar ar
ranged to take suitable action. Satur
day afternoon next the bar will probably
listen to eulogies on the life and charac
ter of the deceased.
The Situation nt the Mines.
It was learned at military headquar
ters yesterday that al | the companies have
left Rock Springs with the exception of
two , and n detachment of twenty men
of the 21st , with a gulling gun. No fur
ther serious trouble is autioipatodthongi !
possible nay probable that if all mili
tary protection were removed at once ,
there would be another riot. Capl. J3b-
stein , of the Slst infantry , who has re
turned to his post at Fort Sidney , is re
ported as saying :
"As to the general feeling there , it
is the sentiment that the matter
should bo peaceably settled , but there
are perhaps a do/'Mi men in the camp
yet who have an incendiary feeling , and
if an opportunity is afforded will cau-so
uotimo. _ There are now about ono
hundred white men at work , and mines
No. 1 , a and r > are being operated. No
work is being done at No. 0-mine : , where
the recent dillioultv originated , and I
have been unable to learn if the company
expect to work that mine during the
coming winter. It is a very ox t endive
one and in the event of its romninin"
idle the company will certainly bo the
loser. This mine can hardly bo con
sidered n part of Rook Spring * . It is
Mtnated two miles up the gulf north of
the town and the residents near the mine
form a separate village. No. fi yields
nothing worth mentioningat present. All
thu coal taken out is raised at No. 0 , a
milo distant. II is expected , howouir ,
that the work on shaft No. G will soon bo
finished , and that the mine will be suc
cessfully operated. I found the citizens
generally of Rock Springs to bo of a con
ciliatory nature. They impress a desire
for a speedy and amicable settlement of
present difficulties , In my opinion the
railway company has the upper hand and
Is in a condition to dictate what kind of
labor it shall employ. I do not think
that one-half of the miners employed in
this mine are Mormons , and all of the
minors previously employed , who were
not implicated in the riot , are given per
mission to resume work , and many have
nri'.braced the opportunity of thus pro
viding for the wants of their families. "
The Great Hniltli.
A traveling man representative of a
largo Now York house informed a re
porter yesterday that ho had the delight
ful pleasure of meeting Omaha's greatest
merchant swindler , Loyal L , Smith , the
Jther day. In riding on the Canada
southern from Windsor to Montreal , he
ivas accosted by a gentleman who Intro ,
luced himself as "Smith , " adding with
\ suggestive twinkle of his optics "from
[ ) maha. " The commercial at once ro-
incmbcred him , for ho had placed Mwral
largo orders with him in the palmy days
af spring and onrly summer , before
smith began to make preparations to fly.
' 1 think you owe mo a treat , " suggested
smith to the drummer , "for it I rc-
menibor correctly , your house was the
July one that I didn't beat. The
jommcrcial man suggebted that ho was
Killing to treat if bmith would step
icross into Uncle Sam's domain with

inclined the invitation , saying tlmt ft

Smith further intimated hisintcntio
of opening up gambling ro&ms a fe
months hence in one of the larger eitii
of the province.
