THE COASTING CAKXlVAIj.
A Merry Time nt IMnttsinouth The
The coasting carnival at Plattsmouth
Saturday night was attended by a good
sized delegation of Omaha people , most
of whom went down on the afternoon
trains , returning yesterday morning. To
Bay that they enjoyed a good time is put
ting it very mildly. They were royally
treated by the citi/cns of Plattsmoatli
who did everything in their power to
make their visitors from the metropolis
feel at homo.
The carnival itself was an unequivocal
success , every detail of the management
being perfect. The committee of
arrangements , Messrs. J. H. Full-Hold , H.
C. Ritchie nnd James Patterson , worked
hard to have everything pass oil' smooth
ly. They certainly succeeded admirably.
Everybody , old and young , weak and
Htrong , wore given a chance and the en
joyment of coasting pleasures was gen
eral. The track selected was on Main
street , being some four or live blocks in
length. It was a trillo slow , on account
of its soft condition , but otherwise
was perfect. The long course was
well lighted with torches placed in the
snowbanks on either side , while a general
illumination of the houses and stores on
the street added to the brilliancy of the
eccno. A display of fireworks was also
a splendid feature of the occasion.
At a few moments after seven o'clock ,
the Omaha delegation was mustered
together at the foot of the hill and placed
in tlio load of the procession of coasters ,
preceded by a brass band. The march
up the hill was madu in a short time , to
the tuneful melody of n quickstep. At
about half past seven the course was de
clared open , and thoOmahn trnvqrso , the
"Liu-lino , " ably manned by Capt. IIul-
nhroy , was sent down , making
the ascent in liltlu loss than forty sec
onds. She was followed by her mate , Geo.
Kay's "Maud S. , " with Captain Hitch-
conic at the handle , nnd thereafter until a
Into hour , n continual stream of
traverses und sleds glided swiftly down
the hill to tlio music of the band , inter
mingled with the merry shouts of the
coasters and the noise of horns and
gongs. . Luckily there were no
Borious accidents , though one unlucky
youth was carried oft' the track slightly
disfigured. The crowd was not so largo
its to bo unmanageable. It was estimated
at about 3,000 people , probably one-sixth
of that number being coasters.
The fleet "Lurlino" and "Maud S"
wore the objects of enthusiastic admira
tion of the I'luttfiinoutli people , many of
whom accepted tin invitation to ride with
the Omaha people thereon. The "Lur
lino" nuulo the fastest time and longest

As Jennie Audrey , a young Judy clerk
in the store of O'Donahoo ' i&Bherfy , was
piissing the Metropolitan hotel yesterday-
ftfternooUf she suddenly fell to thp walk
in an unconscious condition : A numbqr
of people ! u the hotel quickly came to
her assistance nnd carried her to a room
and summoned a physician. Dr. CofT-
man responded , and found that the
young lady wns suffering from
convulsion.1 * . She was immedi
ately placed under the inllucnco
of chloroform which quieted her , but the
convulsions returned several limes. She
was finally placed in a hack and con
veyed to tlio homo of Mrs. McDonongh ,
on California street , where she boards.
At one time Dr. Cofl'man despaired of
saving her life and found it necessary to
keep her under the inlluenco of chloro
form for three hours. At n late hour last
evening she was reported us resting easy
nnd out of danger.

"Tho toughest prisoner 1 ever had in

UKE man Saturday , "was one who was
brought to the countj' jail last night. Ills
name was Hal MeClurc , and he was in
charge-of Sheriff. Nelson , of Bourbon

States Marshal McKinney. The party
was in route to Wyoming , where McClure
is wanted for grand larceny. He is over
six feet tall and built in proportion , and
all ho knows is to eat and light. Ho was
brought into the jail ironed to the sheriff ,
with the marshal following close behind ,
never taking his eyes off the prisoner.
When ho came in ho announced that lie
was a bad man , and ho told the truth.
After ho was arrested in Kansas he made
a hard fight , and shot and severely
wounded a deputy sheriff before ho was
overpowered. After they secured him
and put the irons upon his wrists ho told
thorn that they dare not shoot and started
oil'on a run , and was only captured after
a hard chase by a deputy sheriff on horse
back. He was then placed in a buggy
between two men , but in some way no
managed to get hold of one of their re
volvers and opened lire. Tim bullets
failed to take effect though , and McClure
was knocked in the hcacL After that ho
was chained to the olliecrs. They started
for Wyoming this morning. "

Ill the rotunda of the Paxlon ono night
last week , a BIK : representative met Mr.
C. C. Fowler , representing the firm of
Dan Talmago's Sons , of New ITork , the
only exclusive rlco house in the world.
Mr. Fowler was in Omaha looking after
the interests of his firm , whoso agent hero
is F. W. Mecgan. In conversation with
the reporter , Mr. Fowler said :
"Omaha and vicinity is the poorest
country for the rice business that 1 know
of , and I have been wondering what is
the matter. Nearly all of the river towns
north of here are the same way , and I
can't account for It. It is very evident tome
mo that the people need to have their ap
petites cultivated in this direction , and I
wish 1 could do it Why , in St. Paul th's '
week 1 sold twenty car loads , or in other
words , 1,800 barrels , which make 510,000
"St Paul must bo a great place for rice
eaters , " remarked the reporter. " .There
must be an immense settlement of Chinese
in that location. "
"Not at all , " replied the gentleman ;
"those twenty ear loads will not last very
long. Rico is a big article of consump
tion. Did it ever occur to you that by
far the larger proportion of the world's
population live on it almost exclusively ?
Well , it is a fact. There are 800,000.000 ,
souls in China , Japan , and the East
Indies who , if it were not for the rice
crop , would starve to death. Do you
know how much rice those countries pro
duce in a year ? It is something enor
mous 250,000,000,000 pounds. You may
think that is a pretty nig story , but it is
a fact. These billions of pounds are
nearly all consumed at home , too , for the
exports do not exceed 1 per cent of the
crop. In Japan alone there are 8,000,000
acres planted to rice. 1 could go on nnd
give yon these big figures until your head
"Uutlwill tell you something about
the rice production in this country , " con-
tinned Mr. Fowler. "In the lirst place ,
its introduction here was by mistake , or
rather accident. In 101)4 ) a vessel bound
for Liverpool from Madagascar was
blown out of her course and put into the
port of Charleston , S. C. , for repairs. He-
t'oro starting cm his homeward voyage the
captain gave to ono of his friends , Land
grave Thomas Smith , a small parcel of
rough rice which was in his cook's stores ,
suggesting it might possibly grow and
afford them an additional article of
food. In a new country such a gift was
valuable. That it was so , subsequent
events proved , for the seed was planted
n Mr. Smith's garden ( now known as
Longitude lane , in the city of Charleston )
and the product carefully preserved and
distributed among the colonists , until
from this small beginning the products
increased , and during the ten years from
1720 to 1729 inclusive the exports were
"At that time , and for more than a cen
tury ai'terwards , rice was not used for
food extensively in this country , and most
of the orop was exported to England.
Its culture , however , spread into several
of the southern states , und the finest ar
ticle in the world was produced. Up to
the time of the breaking out of the war
the total product of rico in this country
was 20,012,400 pounds. Then if. dropped
suddenly on account of the toTrible de
vastation which that conflict produced.
After the war ended it again jumped up.
and the production has steadily increased
since. The past year has been the largest
one that wo have ever known. But it was
also disastrous to rice raisers. There was
too much of it. Speculators had
been looking for a long time at
the played out sugar plantations in
Louisiana , und trying to find some use -to
which they could bo put. Last year they
thought they saw their opportunity in
.rice , as it was paying u big price , and so
they planted that cereal heavily. The
result was they put their foot in it
jumped from the fryimrpan into the fire ,
so to speak. The big crop brought down
the price to less than the cost of produc
tion. Over 90,000,000 pounds were raised.
'Prices have been so low that so fur the
foreign crop has been held back. Rico
can be bought to-day tor from ! tj cents to
0- cents a pound. 15ut it will not
remain so low long. As soon as
the homo product has been placed on the
market prices will jump up. Then the
foreign rice will bo available. It can be
produced more cheaply than in this coun
try , but there is n duty on it of 2 } cents a
pound. Our New York houses handles
foreign rice exclusively , while our other
houses in Charleston und Now Orleans
care for the homo production.
"This year our houses expect to handle
10,000,000 pounds of foreign rico and 50- ,
000,000 of domestic. This country does
not export any of its crop to speak of , as
rice is rapidly becoming ono of the staple
articles of diet. "
After a long talk from which the above
facts were drawn from Mr. Fowler , who ,
by the way , Is a most affable gentleman ,
the reporter agreed to increase the de
mand for rico by having his grocer send
up half a pound for his next day's dinner.
OHicor Bloom last night arrested a
young Jew named Abe Dan/.mgor on
suspicion of having stolen a lot of cigars.
The ollieer was informed that Dan/.inger
had for three weeks past been paying his
board at the St. James hotel with cigars ,
Altogether ho had given the proprietor
1,200 , ami a suspicion was awakened that
ho had not come by them honestly.
There have been a number of cigars
stolen recently , and it will probably bo
developed this morning if any found in
Dan/.inger's possession are among the
number , _

Ho Hought Her For $2OOO A Sen
A most sensational cpigodc , a portion
of which transpired in Omaha , has just
come to light. An uncanny romance it
is , nnd it shows that thnro arc still some
people in the world whoo notions are
very much like those which prevailed
during the dark ages.
Seveh years ago there emigrated to
this country from the city of Coblmiz ,
Germany , a young man named Anton
Hannnoycr. After many vicissitudes ho
finally landed in Ford county , Kansas ,
about live years ago , and by dint
of industry and economy managed
to save up a respectable eonipetcncj * ,
besides being the owner of a 240
acre farm in tlio neighborhood of
Dodge City. When Hammoyer left the
old country he was engaged to a comely
'maiden named Uortha Miiclhcim , whom
ho had promised to .send for as soon as ho
had secured a homo or accumulated
enough money. Whether his sweetheart
had become sour to him , or whether ho
was so engrossed in the money making
business that his mind drifted uwiy from
her is not known , but shortly after his
arrival in America he ceased writing letters -
tors to any one in his native city , and so
far us his people or lianco Knew , ho
was dead. When all hope of Ham-
meyer's return had been lost , his
younger brother , Joseph , took up
the thread of love for Frauleiu
Muclheim which the missing one had
dropped , and after a time of wooing the
two were married , Last Juno Anton
Hatnini'yor , who had in tlw meantime
grown prosperous , happened to pause in
the midst of his money making opera
tions , and recollected that he hud left a
sweetheart und a brother in Germany ,
and ho accordingly wrote to both of
them , informing them of his whore-
uboitts , and offering to send money to
his brother and intended to bring tliein
to this country. After several letters had
been interchanged by the parties , it was
finally agreed that the brother and
his wife would come to this country.
During this correspondence the man in
Kansas had not been informed that his
brother had married Frrulein Miielheim
and for all ho know the maiden whom ho
left in promises was still true to him.
Every arrangement was made for the
coming of llammoyer's brother and what
fie supposed was Ins own intended wife.
It was agreed that Htimmcyor should
meet the immigrants in Oinaha , and
when those arrived in this city on Wednes
day afternoon they found nobody to meet
them. Meanwhile the Kansas man had
been snowbound and had telegraphed to
Omaha to have the immigrants come to
St. Joseph , Mo. , where lie would meet
them. Hanimeyor arrived in the Jailer
city Friday noon , and when Js'o. ' 2 on lite
K. C. , St. J. & C. U. arrived at the Union
depot the lirst people to get oil' were the
younger brother and his wife. They were
met by the man from Kansas , and u gen
eral reunion look place on Hie platform ,
after which the parties adjourned to the
ladies' waiting room of the Union depot.
It was fully an hour before the fact was
made known to llaminayer that his
sweetheart of long ago and his brother
the two who stood before him wore man
and wife , and it was almost another hour
before ho seemed to realize it. IIo was
nearly dislractcd for : i lime , and wan
dered up and down lite waiting room in
a restless and uncertain manner.
Then ho called his brother over to ono
side and Iho two had u long and earnest
conversation , into which the woman
was afterwards called , and the result of
which was tin agreement that Hummcyer
should loan his younger brother $2,000 ;
that the latter should return to Germany
and that his wife should be hold as a hos
tage by the former until the money was
repaid , with the understanding tfiat it
should never bo repaid , and that the wo
man should live with the elder brother.
In a few hours the woman took leave
forever of her husband , boarded the train
with her former lover and future com
panion in life , and left for Atchison where
they look Ihc Santa Fo train for Ford
county. When the south bound train had
departed the younger llammeyer boarded
the Chicago express with an uir of stonic
indifference , und went his way , return
ing to Germany.

Ho Hud No License.
A suit of moro than ordinary interest ,
especially to exp.rcssmen and liacknien ,
was decided in the -district court Sat-
terday by Judge Wakeloy
, 601110 four or live years ago Patrick
Hughes , an expressman , sued Hoybrook
& Co. , of this city , on an account o ;
$ 101.85 , which ho alleged to bo duo him
for his services in transporting goods for
them. The defense , among ether points ,
interposed the plea that the plaintiff
Hughes , hail no license and thus was not
legally authorized to run an express
wagon1 hence , it was areucd. ho had no
right to expect any remuneration.
Judge Wukcley's ' decision uphold this
latter point , and thus the case was do-
culed in favor of defendants. Ho main
tained that Hughes could not recover the
money which ho alleged was duo him
simply because ho had no authority to
do business , having failed to complj

The Success of Adelaide Moore nt
Iloyd's Opera House.
Miss Adelaide Moore loaves Omaha
with the best feelings for the city und Iho
promise to return. The success of hoi
first appearance hero recommends the
city lo her favor , and if Iho schedule of
the next season keeps her in America the
local public will have the pleasure of see
ing her again. The performance of the
"School for Scandal" Saturday afternoon
drew an audience equal lo that of the
night previous und one of tlio larg
est mallnee houses ever in Iho
history of the theatre. Sheridan's
well known and popular drama wns given
a presentation worthy of its great "char-
uclor. It was in Juliet , however , on that
night that the star appeared to her best
advantage and won her groalost laurels.
Framed with grace and uncommon
beauty , Miss Moore is perfectly adapted
to the role of the gentle Juliet. Her
efforts mot niith liberal applause und two
recalls were given during the evening.
In stage business , emotional work und
common dialogue she is good. The com
pany is well selected , und on Saturday
night the Mereutio of Mr. Ross can bo
singled out as a splondod pleeo of work.
The company left for Dos Moincs last
It is sincerely to bo regretted that some
ill-advised friends of Miss Ingcr.soll Hew
to print in the morning papers. The
statement impugning Miss Moore's
jealousy is altogether false , as she know
nothing of the flower episode at the lime ,
and when she received the Intelligence on
the next day she very graciously went to
Miss Ingursoll and apologized. The star
was mot with freezing courtesy which
conveyed a virtual insult , ami
very naturally took great offense. The
gentlemen who secured the publications
m llio Sunday papers only uggruvcd mat
ters und sire almost in duty bound to con
tinue their services to Miss Ingersoll by
securing her some occnpalion since they
have robbed her of the present. She may
go on lo Philadelphia with Iho company.
arriving Ihero in two weeks and will
then be dropped from liio troupe. It is
sincerely to bo regretted that this has oc
curred , as the young lady is worthy of
Tbo Vincent company played to u
jammed house at the People 's theatre
last night , the bill being "Queen's Evi
dence. " The stirring drama was well
presented and hold the attention of the
audience from the lirst act to the last.
Just before the curtain rose for the last
lime Mr. Vincent appeared and an
nounced that the company would remain
another week. The play lo-night is "Miss
Million , ' ' which will afford Miss Vincent
wide scope for the exercise of her versa
tile talcnls. llei characterization of the
leading role is said to be very line.
THE MUSICAL rxiox CO.NCIKT.
The concert of tlio Musical Union or
chestra at the oera ) house ivas well at
tended last evening , the audience being ,
if anything , larger than on the two lire-
ceding Sunday nights. The programme
was quite up' to the usual standard of the
concerts given by the orchestra.
"HUITAI.O HIM , "
Speaking of the "Buffalo Bill" combi
nation which appears hero this week , the
Rochester Daily Herald says :
"The Grand Opera House was thronged
last evening by an audience that was deep
ly interested from lirst to last in following
the plot of the "Prairie Waif , " presented
by the Buffalo Bill combination. The in
cidents were sensational enough to please
the most critical , and the timely rescues
that succeeded each other in rapid suc
cession were loudly applauded by the
galleries. The company is largo und
well balanced , and the piece is put on
with all the accessories- "
