Police Court Points.
W. M. Wii-ks was lined the usual
amount in police cour * yesterday for
tliT.ukunnoss , I1J3 ttory waste the elU'.ct
tluit ho was aslant driver on the Unit
cd States muil-wagou , and that
he and the driver , disregarding their
duties had taken "just a drink too much. ' '
Itaforc they knew it , they were botli roll
ing drunk , and the mail-wagon was not
driven to the depot , until too late to
throw the mail into the out-going trains.
The driver managed to elude arrest , but
Wicks was less fortunate , and was cap
tured by the police while in a bad state
of intoxication. Yesterday morning ho
fined $5 and costs by Judge Stenberg.
lie was somewhat more fortunate than
the driver himself , who was lined $50 by
the postal authorities for his dereliction.
Sadie McBride was sent up to the
county jail for another thirty days term.
Slip had again been arrebteti for disturb-
injf the peace.
John A. Ramsey , who had been ar
rested for "boating his board bill" was
discharged , as _ there were no grounds for
a criminal action against him.
Fred Pratlon paid a line of { 5 and costs

How the City's KGVCIIIIO Is Swelled
by Police CourtFinoi.
"There are thirteen proprietors of
gambling establishments and 105 women
of the town who will be called upon to
liny lines into the city tieasury during
month of March , " said Police Judge
Stenberg to a reporter yesterday. "The
amount paid by the gamblers ? It is
$27.05 per month. Formerly there were
only four establishments in the city
which paid a line of this amount , the
other and smaller ones being allowed to
escape with a fine of $12.55. Lately ,
however , I have made the line a uniform
ono of $37.05.
"The numncr of gambling establish
ments appear to have increased since
Mayor Boyd issued his "closed-front
door" order last summer , when there
were but seven houses paying a fine ? "
"No , there are really no more estab
lishments in the city now than there were
then. The fact is that a number of pri
vate poker rooms have been running hero
for some time without paying a fine. The
proprietors of these have been brought to
time , and are now required to pay a
license the same as tlio men who run the
big games. These little poker rooms
catch a good share of the trade nnd there
is no reason why their proprietors should
be exempt. Yes , they are scattered
all over the city , and some of them are
patronized by highly respectable men
who don't care to play at an open board ,
with chances of meeting anybody anil
everybody. There are a few more of
these private joints which maiingc to run
without contributing to the city treasury ,
but it won't bo long before the pro
prietors are brought to grief. " :

Railway Notes.
The cut in passenger rates has caused
a large increase in the trallic of the
Union Paeilio road , and every morning
and night the west bound trains are
heavily loaded with passengers , a largo
number of whom are of the emigrant
class. Yesterday morning an unusu
ally largo number of passengers
went out on the overland ,
most of them destined to points on the
coast. The latest "turn" of the Union
Pucilio will catch a good many people.
That company now oilers tocarry pas
sengers to Los Angelas , Cal. , via San
Francisco , and return without extra

tickets to Los Angclos have been obliged

Can bo realized best by ilioso who cnu recall to memory tlio old sites

The first selected by the ambitious fathers of our Onto City , for the ercci

until their ambition was gratified and they completed the noble and hand-
Which is elevated to that point that its towering eupalo can bo seen for miles

cf this bestowing feature to our city , as it is equal to tliat of any in the larger
cities east. These features show what enterprise can do for a once called
"small western town ; " and now with the site which has recently been the pur
chase of Hon. Win. Paxton , on Farnam street , between 15th and IGth streets ,
adjoining the site of the old court house , with a view to erect his new hotel
which when completed promises to eclipse anything in the hotel line on the
American continent. Mr. Paxton is a worthy citizen and deserves praise for '
the interest he takes in beautifying the city. Last but not least was the es t

they are equal to the neatest in the west. The Parlors also deserve credit for
the progress they have made in winning the many hard fought battles of com
petition , and in dressing the people of Omaha with such exquisite taste , and
saving them from 50 to 100 per cent on each purchase. The Parlors are the
