Itiilhvny Notei.
Mr. Ourslor , tlio local freight agent of
( he Union Pacific , who was to act , after
tlanuary 1 , as tlio local agent of all the
transfer roads , has as yet rrccived his
"coninii'-sioii" from thcMilwaukeoalono.
Thus that road is virtually tlio only east
ern line with a freight italion in Omaha.
The reason is not apparent for the delay
in consummating tlio freight union pro
ject which was favorably passed upon
last fall by the eastern lines. It was do-
cldcd by them to establish each on this
side u freight ollicc with Mr. Ourslcr actIng -
Ing in the rapacity of joint agent , repott
ing directly to eaeh roa'd instead of to the
Union I'ltullio as formerly.
"Why is the Milwaukee the onlv road
that acts upon this glorious fccnomol"

the solo reply. It may be that the others
intend to go back on their agreement in
llio matter but if .such is the intention tlio

agents informed.
\vtiv Tin : WINKS SNAP.
"Tho wires work hard to-day. " said an
operator to a reporter as ilm latter
walked into one of the railway telegraph
offices of the city yesterday.
"You see , " resumed the brass pounder ,
as ho was questioned for ihu reason of
the bad order of aflairs. "It does not re
quire ice and wind alone to down the
wires. The air can do it under a clear
sky and with not a breath of breeze
stirring. It of course requires cold air ,
and when the atmosphere touches a
temperature several teens below zero
it is almost as destructive
on the lines as u cyclone. Yon sec thai
cold contracts ( lie wires and when they
draw up their slack they begin to pull.
They can hardly pull the poles down and
as something must give way the wires
usually do so themselves and snap oil' .
It is causes us lots of trouble , delay and
expense , to bo sure , but so far there has
been no remedy for it found. Probably
when the vexed problem of healing tlio
street cars is solved the genius who docs
it will be hired by a , syndicate to work up
a scheme to keep telegraph wires com
fortable in winter. "
A rail on"tho Tenth street crossing last
night , slumped in two , but the break was
discovered before any damage resulted.
Jt is supposed that it broke from the cold.
The trains are all running fairly on
time , although the intensely cold weather
makes everything drag.
The Union L'aeilic issues a circular an
nouncing $50 rales to and rctniii from
San Francisco on the occasion of the
Grand Army reunion this year.
Another case of the caisson fever oc
curred among the bridge workmen on the
other side. The victim was brought ouor
to St. Joseph's hospital and attended by
Dr. ( Jalbraith. Tins last case is not very
serious. The two former patients have
so far recovered that one of them was dis
charged and went back to work this
morning while llio other is rapidly im
proving. On the suggestion of Dr. Gal-
brailh tlio shitts have been changed as
the depth increases , from thrco hours oil
and thrco oil' , to Iwo on and four oil' .
A circular issued by Albert Keep , pres
ident of the Chicago & Northwestern
railroad , announces that in the law de
partment the title of general solicitor has
ween changed to general counsel , and of
assistant general solicitor to general at

Missouri river. " His views were based
on data collected from the rccont works
along the river anil from his own obser
vations on the United States works in tlio
\lolnity of Omaha , on which work ho
was tin assistant. Ho referred to tlio ro-
suits of the work above Omaha and
stated that tlio greater purl of this work
was far morn elllcaclous than the public
generally boliovod. Drnv > ings , maps und
photographs of the works were exhibited.
Mr. Clinu of Washington county , read
an artielo on the Fish Creek improvement
jn Burl and Washington counties , this
Btivto. Ills paper was particularly inter
esting inasmuch as so great an amount
of public attention is at the present time
being given to the maltir ot drainage of
low Tint li-rtilo farm lands not only in
Nebraska but in nearly every state. Ho
elaborated on the method ot drainage in
the above referred to counties , and ex

Istci-liiR to IMibllc Convenience.
In rcsponso to petitions filed with him ,
Comity Superintendent Hruner yesterday
morning made tlio following changes in
the school districts of the county !
Detached from school district , No. 40 ,
llio n. w. 1 of section 20 and n , o. } of sec
tion 87 of township 10 , range 11 ca t , and
annexed the same district Xo.-ll.
Detached from school district No. 41 ,
the s. e. 1 and c. i of the s. w. 1 of section
10 , township 10 , raugo 11 east , and an
nexed the same lo school district No. 52.
Ho .sent notification of those changes to
the district and county olllcers who must
innko proper revision of the public
ledgers accordingly.
" \Vhat \ is thu purpose of the change i u
the form of dislrietsV" asked a reporter
yesterday of Mr. Hruner.
'Tor the convenience of the children
in that part of the county. You see the o
districts all touch each other and the
troubles which the change mends probably
grow tip among the people living on the
border districts. It ia our purpose in
forming n district to shape it with refer
ence to convenient access from the cen
ters of population. In a rapidly-growing
county like Douglas conditions change
and as school houses cannot bo dtagged
about from ono locality to the other , wo
are forced in time to make alterations. In
llic case at hand , you see that the school
in district titty-two was more
convenient to a number of the residents
of 41 and they thus wished a change. To
get the ground ceded as they desired they
nml to nropitinlo their fellow district men
by obtaining an allowance Irom district
40 , adjoining on the other side. Then
when everything was satisfactorily ar
ranged they all three petitioned for the
change ana all that remained for me waste
to order the change. It Is a delicate task
as it is hard to please all and a school dis
trict row is worse than a national civil
war in the intensity of sectional feelings
it arouses. "
Cattlemen IlcqucHt Thnt the Execu
tion of the Order bo Delayed.
Messrs. William A. I'axton and John
A. MeShano returned Monday night from
Washington whither they went some time
ago on business of importance. Their
object , was lo confer with President Cleve
land and the secretary of state with re
gard to the order for the removal of
fences on all grazing lands. Messrs ,
Fusion and McShauo botli own largo
ranches in Keith , Sioux and Cheyenne
counties , anil the.yldcsired to have tlio exe
cution of the order delayed until June , at
"Our conference with the secretary of
the interior and the attorney general was
very satisfactory. " said Mr. I'tixton , in
conversation with n rcportar to-day ,
" they gave no dctinilo answer to our re
quest that the fences bo allowed to re
main until June , but gavq us to under
stand that they were inclined to accede
to our wishes. "
' "What is your object in having the exe
cution of the fence removal order do-
"Simply because lo take them down at
the present time in the dead of winter
would bo too great an inconvenience.
It would require an extra round up of the
cattle in the spring , inasmuch as the
herds would become scattered were the
fences to be let down now. "
"Will this removal of the fences in
jure the interests of the largo cattle
men ? "
"Not in the least. Wo would as soon
have the fences down as not , the grass
will bo there just the .same , "

The Reason Why it Does Not Pay to Specu
late in Onttlo in Omaha.
How Oinnha Unso linllists Stand on
the IOHuo | Question Social
Events Soon to Transpire
01 her City Xows ,
Oinnha Stock Vards.
"By the way , " remarked a live slock
dealer to a BII : : reporter , "have you no-
( iced that wo have no active speculators
in live stock on'.tho Omaha market ? " Jt
is a fact , however , and this very thing
goes to prove that Omaha is a good mar
ket. All other markets ot any import"
mice have speculators who buy up .stock
of all kinds , which they ship to other
markets , whcro they expect to realize
better prices than they paid. The same
thing was tried hero by men of experi
ence , and lh > t-class buyers , but they all
made n failure of it and had toghelt
up. Some of them went back to Chicago
where- they came from , other * sought
new lie-Ids for speculation and others
still remain here , buying lor packing
houses or following sonic other line ol
business. None ol them , however , arc
speculating in livestock here. Jt is no
secret that the speculators lost consider
able money hero last summer and fall.
and I could mention the names of .several
whoso pockets are lighter by reason of
their operations on the Omaha live stock
market. "
"That gentleman , " continued the
speaker , "standing there , worked all last
Mimmor and fall buying and shipping
stock and came out $ . " ,000 behind , and
had to give up the business as a losing
game. The reason for all this is plain
enough. When the tock yards were
opened , tlio projectors of the
scheme , the packing hou c and
in fact everybody ho had anything to
do witli the yauls , realixed that the only
way to bring stock to the yards wns to
pay good prices. As a result the prices
paid for both cattle and hogs were so
high that the speculator could not pay
the prices and ship withoutlosilig money.
If tlio specuIatorSj who know all the ins
and outs of the business , cannot make it
pay to ship , the original owners of the
stock certainly cannot afford to do so. "
"I might mention several instances
whcro Ihj ! owners of stoek refused to ' ell
at the prices bid on the Omaha market ,
and shipped through to Chicago onl.y to
lose money. 1 remember one train of
cattle from Chadron was shipped through
to Chicago and cold at ? : ) . ? " ) after an of
fer of $8.85 had bcon made hero. The
owners of another train of twenty-one
cars of cattle from Oregon relused an of
fer of $4.r > 0 in Omaha , and after paying
transportation and shrinkage- , sold llftoon
cars in Chicago for § 4.50 , and the other
six ears for S54.2.1) . I might mention a
good many instances of the same kind
but will put it oil' until some other time.
However , so far as the Omaha hog mark
et is concerned , J might add that if you
will compare prices , taking into consid
eration the ditl'erenco in transportation
and shrinkage , you will iind that the
Omaha hog- market is very frequently
above the Chicago market and never be
low it. _
An Effort to Put Omaha in tlio West
ern I cngtio
A dispatch from St. Joseph bearing
the date of January 18 , says : "Tho
Western Base Ball league organi/.ed here
to-day , with St. Joseph , Lcavcnworth ,
Topeka , Omaha , Lincoln , Denver and
Pueblo. E. E. Murphy of Leavcnworlh ,
was elected president. It is expected it
will bo self-sustaining , as the members
will pay the visiting clubs a stipulated
guarantee , and the home club will take
all gate receipts. The next meeting will
bo held in Omaha in March. "
The gentlemen who represent the bnso
ball interests of Omaha emphatically
deny that this city wili bo represented by
a club in this now league. "We don't care
to have anything to do with such a pic
ayune all'air as this , " remarked one of
them when his attention was called to
tlio dispatch ; "wo can't ail'ord it. The
cities are too far apart to make the cir
cuit a profitable one. Besides there will
bo too many one-horse towns in the
league. The project of the Northwestern
league certainly appears to bo the most
feasible one. The six cities which will
enter this organixation , St. Paul , Minne
apolis , Diiluth , Omaha , St. Joseph
and Kansas City , are thriving ,
prosperous places , and certainly
ought to support clubs. Yes , J think
that the prospects for the organisation of
a base ball stock company hero are ex
tremely favorable. "
Other gentlemen interested in base
ball expressed the same opinion. A
committee wilj bo put in the Held very
shortly to solicit subscriptions.

It is now in the second yrar of success

headquaiters in Montana. ] "Butto is a
bustling , progressive town of at least
20,000 inhabitants. Its growth whieli has
taken place almost entirely during tlio
last two years has been .simply phenome
nal. The principal resources of the town
are the copper and silver mines which
are located in the heart of the eity.
Heavy shipments ? Well , 1 should smile.
The copper mines on an average send out
twenty-six cars every day. This metal is
shipped to New York and thence to Liv
erpool , England , and Swansea , Wales ,
where it is put through the refiner
ies and is then rcshipped to
this country. The silver mines ship in
bullion about $200,000 , every week. Those
mines are situate in the very centre of
the city. There is considerable indignation
in Montana over Commissioner bpark'.s
recent ruling in regard to proving up
land entries. A committee of Montana
men headed by the governor , will shortly
Icavo for Washington to Iny before the
secretary of the interior , urgent reasons
why this ruling should be set aside. It
will certainly work a great deal of barm
in Montana. The sentiment in favor of
the admission of our territory as a state
is growing. So far as population is con

The First Congregational Church
Ijcavcs Its Old Sanctuary.
- The First Congregational church bade
farewell to their old building last Sun

pancy of the skating rink while a now
$10,000 , cdillco is being erected on the site
of tlio old. On the occasion of the clos

to build an lionet for the sanctuary ; Ijc

1'roject to Unite All German-Ameri
can Societies ol' Omaha.
There is a project under consideration
by a number of prominent German citi-
/ens to brine ; all the Teutonic organiza
tions of Iho city into one grand associa
tion , in which they shall each be mutu
ally interested in maintaining the spirit
of Gorman-American citizenship anil the
amelioration of the condition of all its
members. The school is the center of
this enterprise anil in it tlio greatest
amount of the good reached by
such an organization will bo
accomplished. The institution is
h to-day certainly in a Nourishing con
dition , with a largo attendance , good fac
ulty and liberal store of funds. But not
pnblicspirUcd gentlemen sco tliatit is now
lilling the scoiio of its iioseibilitics and
intend il possible to enlarge Us sphere.
The German-American association , un
der which the .school is conducted ,
aheady exists but its membership is
almo-it exclusively from the Turn-Vercin.
Jt is now thought to make it more
completely the property of German-
American citix.ens by enlisting actively
in its control , all classes of that nation
ality. This can best bo done by forming
a federal ion of the societies to which tlio
German element belong , and the initia
tive in such an enterprise has already
been taken. The Concordla with its forty
member- , has signified its willingness and
de.Mro to take part ill the project , and itis
believed that the others will follow.
There yet remain outstanding , Iho 1'latt-
doutsch-vurcin , the SwoilKcr-yeroin and
the Miunnorehor. Thcsoocioties / com
prise about thrco hundred people of good
standing and thcno combined with tlio
two huiuUed already within the organi-
zalion will form a formidable backing
for any educational institution or any
other enterprise that might bo undertaken
for the public good.

have progressed , no one knons , except
themselves. All their correspondence is
done in oipher. I bclioM ) that they Mill
recover the money eventually , though It
will probably bo t > omo time before they
do , Thn story of the di Ivor of tlio coach
is generally accepted as true , although
there arc a lew who profess to believe
