their friends were busy nil day , and
worked llko t'trers ' during the two hours
that votliiK was going on from C to 7
o'clock. In wards however
some , , every
thing was quiet uml peaceful , but in the
First and Third the fight waxed hot.
Gangs of men wore constantly moving
from one polling place to the other and
crowded around the ballot boxes to help

the heaviest voting was done , 727 ballots
being east. The three candidates for

The Missouri Pacific Scuds Out Its

A tndn of thirty cars of freight was
sent out over the Missouri Paclnc railroad
ycstrday , the first since March 5th. It was
sent to St. Louis and other points south ,
and consisted almost entirely of merchan

"Victor , the Illttc Stocking , " nn Un-
( Iiialilled SUCCCHB Last Evening-
The opera house was filled with an
appreciative audience last night to wit
ness the lioston Ideals rendition of ' 'Vic
tor , the IJluo Stocking. " It was the first
time tliis opera has been given in Omaha ,
and it mot with the great success which
it merited. It is bright , sparkling and
pure , abounding in clever dialogue and
charming sittiation. The sccno of the
play is laid in Paris , in the year of the fall
of the Uastile. The plot , while not com
plicated , possesses enough interest to absorb
serb the attention of the audience. The
interest centers about two characters ,
"Victor Delmar , " a loiter writer or sec
retary , and "Fanehcttc. " During tlio
progress of the opera the fact is dis
closed that instead of being a mere street-
singer , as she appears , Fanchettois really
the daughter of a French nobleman , who
considers himself a poet. The noble
man brings one of his poems to Victor
for revision. The poem is full ot loyalty
to the king , but Victor , who is an
ardent friend of the people , changes
its sense completely , and after passing
through his hands , instead of being a
royalist song it becomes a republican
street ballad. The marquis , of course , is
brought into disfavor witli the king and
is ordered to the Haslile. However , ho
escapes to London , taking "Funchotto , "
whom ho in the monntimo recognized
with his daughter with him. While ho is
absent Victor is elected a general in the
army of ( ho republic and saves him from
imprisonment when lie returns to Paris.
Fanchette also returns and the course of
true love , which had been clogged by the
discovery of her high birtli , once more
moves on serenely.
As "Fanchctto" Mile. Zelio do Lussan
made a great hit. She has a fine , well
modulated soprano of excellent timbre.
In addition to this she possesses a pretty
face and exquisite figure , which together
with her piquant acting makes her ner-
formanco altogether charming. Mr. Mc
Donald as "Victor" displayed his voieo
to perfection. His talent , however , seems
to bo limited to his singing , ns he does not
excel as an actor. Miss Agnes Hunting
don both sang and acted well and re
ceived deserved applause. Uarnabeo ,
Mor.scll and Frothingham , the universal
favorites , easily maintained tlieir repu
tation. As H whole the company was ex
cellent , and showed the results of care
ful training. The chorus sang in har
mony and in time , and aided L'j' ' Miss
Lussan , in the last act awoke the audience
to such enthusiasm as has seldom been
scon in Omaha.
To-night "Tho Maid of Honor" will bo
presented , with elegant costumes and ap
propriate scenery. This is more closely
allied to grand opera than almost any
operetta on the stage. It has been highly
commended by tlio critics and will doubtless -
loss draw a crowded house. At to-mor

FOOLS AND THEIR FOLLIES.
What tlio April One .Reporter Saw
The Iicngiic IiivcfttlKating n Wo
man's Wronjjs A Ilcad Alan
Identified Itrlef Mention.
At a few moments after half past seven
Wednesday night , a procession of seven
Chinamen , headed by thohalf-Anglociscd
leader of the celestial race in this city ,
San Goon , passed up the nislo of the
First M. E. church. They had come to
attend the revival , and as they pushed
their way up front , ttieicrowds which had
already gathered parted , and allowed
them to take n scat in ono of the first
pews. The Chinamen were not the last
ones to arrive , for up to eight o'clock or
after , people came pouring in , until the
spacious auditorium was filled. KVcti
about the reporter's stand the throng
pressed and took seats , hardly leaving
room for the scribes to apply elbow
The meeting was opened with prayer ,
followed by Miiging. Then Rev. Ir.
Hitler , the evangelist , advanced to the
front part of the platform and began
"A revival , " hs said , "is a sort ol
growth. Wo have got to learn how to
conduct it ; to understand the methods of
one another. 1 have got myself fairly
before you , and I think you understand
mo ; now I want to understand you. I
want to hear what you have to say. I
would like to have about twcnty-livo
minutes given up to the audience , so that
200 people may relate personal experi
ence. Ho brief. Don't ' waste time. Talk
from the depths of your heart. It will do
you treed , and will help the sinners. Oh !
brethren , 1 believe wo are going to have
a greater revival hero a greater out
pouring of tiie spirit than you have
any idea of. God grant it"
The singing of "I Will Follow Jesus"
came next. Then the Rev. Hitler called
upon the recent converts as well as the
oliler Christians to tell their experience's
Rev. Mr. MeCaig spoke rather beyond
the limit laid down by Mr. Hitler.
"Hrothrcn , I want to say , " ho concluded ,
"that my heart has never gone out to
wards men as it has since I have lived in
Omaha. My son } has never yearned for
the salvation of sinners as it has since my
stay here. "
Rev. Mr. Phplps spoke briefly. "Glory ,
Glory , llallelujan" followed , one stan/.a
of which was so inspiring that Mr. Hitler
asked the privilege of singing it as a solo.
It must be confessed that the evangelist
is not a great singer. Hut what lie
lacked in technique he made up mcnthu
siasm , and th audience responded
bravely with theechorus.
A very red faced young man , who said
that ho was a sailor , had run away from
homo when 10 years old and had followed
the sea for eighteen years , stood up in
the rear of the house. He had been con
verted since coming to Omaha some
months ago. " 1 have been as hard a
man in my day as any man could bo , " ho
said , "used to think of nothing but whis
ky , cards and all things wicked used to
give myself up wholly to the ways of the
world. I am chanced now. 1 have an
old Christian mother who has been pray
ing for me all these years. I gbt a" letter
from her to-day Goil bless her. Ono of
the struggles 1 have had within tlio past
few weelis has been against the use of to
bacco. 1 am coming out a conqueror
and 1 thank God foi it. " Loud cries of
"Amen ! Amen ! " from all parts of the
house showed the brother that ho had
many sympathizers in his . struggle
against the use of tobacco and other sins
of the flesh.
"Perhaps you want to hear from anoth
er recruit , " said a blind man , rising to
his feet. "I have served two enlistments
in tlio United States army and was blind
ed in one of thorn. A few nights ago I
was converted in these meetings and re
ceived my sight again my heavenly
An old lady perhaps seventy-nine or
eighty years of age said that she was
proud to bo member of the army. " 1 am
a Methodist and 1 am jilait of it. 1 hliall
follow the path until the great captain
shall call me homo. "
A stanza or two of "Ho Lcadcth Me"
was sung. An elderly gentleman in ono
of tlio front pews told how his faitli had
been strengthened. His feeling was that
the present revival was going to reach
out and embrace many houls who had
never before tasted the righteousness of
An old gentleman with long gray
whiskers asked the privilege of relating
his personal experience in song , llo
sang the old familiar stan/.a beginning :
' 1 rest , 1 rest
Supremely blest ,
Without a care to canker. "
His singing was not perfect by any
moans , and rather amused some of the
more worldly minded. One of tlio China
men in the front row appeared particu
larly amused , and grinned audibly. Still
the singing continued , growing bettor
toward the end , until most of the audi
ence wore rather sorry when it closed ,
The vocalist then brielly told his exper
ience and his faith ( hat the Lord was about
to shower down a great blessing upon
the people of Omaha.
All over the house men and women of
all ages arose and hriolly spoke.
The evangelist , warming up , jumped
to his feet and advanced to the edge of
the platform. "Now I'm going to ask
something , " ho Mild , " \vhich will roach
a good many of your hearts. 1 want all
of you hero who have once enjoyed the
sweets of salvation , but do not enjoy
thorn at. the present time , to stand up
now. You nay , ' 1 undcr.stand the lan
guage of Canaan , but 1 don't enjoy tlioso
gnthls as 1 used to,1 There are many of
you hero , who have backslidden. Let us
toll Him about it. Wo will pray for
Slowly people arnsn in difl'uront parts
of the house until perhaps twelve or fif
teen had berne testimony to bavin" wan
dered from the fold , They were invited
to stand , and Mr. Hitler led in an earnest
prayer that they might bo brought into
the light again ,
More sinking followed. The Christian
portion of the nudionco began to move
lioro and there throughout the house ,
exhorting the sinners to rouont. The
ovangoliht nervously flitted from ono
part of tlio house to tlio other , shaking a
hand hero , dropping a word there , and
over and anon , praying with some strug
gling penitent. He nervously rushed to
the platform , nnd mounting a chair
called to all who were trying to turn to
Jesus to make tlio first stop in line and
kneel at the altar , or take a front seat
where they could bo prayed with.
Quito n number responded some ton or
twelve and nearly all professed con-
Torsion before tuny turned away.
Among them was a Chinaman , who , as
the ovangclist announced , "had found
Jesus since ho entered the houso. "
The services were closed with the sing
ing of the doxology , and the fourth nit'ht
of Mr. Hitler's work In Omaha was at an
Alilt FOOI/S DAY.
Small Roys and Dignified Men Alike
Subject to 1'racUcal Jokex.
Wednesday was pre-eminently the day
for the small , boys. The irrepressible kid
arose early in the morning and began to
lay traps for the uuwury to fall into.
With a sly sardonlccvn demoniac
when ho found a victim smile he started
out in the morning bant upon deceit.
Horse cars were stopped by him and
after two minutes pataout waiting the
driver was solaced by the remark that it
was the First of AprD People kicked
hats placed invitingly irpou the sidewalk
nnd , when they found the hat was filled
with brick , had a gcntla reminder for the
rest of the day in their toes that they
were April fools. Dignified men stooped
down and picked up bright look-
ins quarters only to- - drop them
with scorched fingers in time to
hear n hearty cry of "April Fool" and
KCO a dozen heads disappear around the
neighboring corner. Early in the morn
ing the swirit of fun scorned to bo infec
tious and the practical jokes were by no
means confined to the youth. Hartoml-
ors took pleasure in giving their regular
customers nauseous mixtures instead of
the matutinal.cocktail which tlieir stomach
ach craved ; smokers found nails and
pieces of wood In their cigars , and those
unfortunate enough to UMJ chewing to
bacco got frequent tastes of quinine In
stead of the much beloved nicotine. In
fact every variety of chestnut was
brought back from the dim. ugos of boy
hood and iitili/.cd for all it was worth ,
and ingenious minds Fct themselves to
work inventing new "gags. "
Perhaps the most sport was had at the
coroner's ofiieo. The body ot a man who
had been killed by nn accident had been
brought in , ami 'as usual there was n
great crowd of morbid curiosity seekers
anxious to see it. A mail would rush in
hurriedly and exclaim : " 1 hear you'vo
got a corpse in hero. Let mo see it now
Unit's a good fellow. "
The coroner would smile sarcastically
and quietly remark : "I guess you've for
gotten that this is the 1st of April. " That
would be sullicirnt and without making
any further inquiries the man would rush
out. vowing vengeance upon the person
who had played an April fool joke upon
The fun , however , was all good nn-
turcd and no one seemed to take ollbnso
at being sent upon a fool's errand.
An Interesting Case.
The Law and Order League yesterday
took the girl , Louisa Mercer , who
it is claimed , was enticed from
her homo in Council Hlufl's , out o
the house of Mrs. Frank. Agent James
of the league , has been working untiro-
iimly on the case for the past few day * ,
and has discovered evidence by which ho
thinks he can prove- that the young
woman was allured from her homo by
promises that she would be taught Urn
dress-maker's art in this pity. She has
respectable parents living in tlio Ulufi's ,
who arc greatly grieved over the course
into which she has fallen. Up to about
a few weeks ago Miss Mercer worked in
a hotel in Council Hlufi'Sj and two weeks
since was brought to this city. In work
ing up the case , Agent James was ren
dered valuable assistance by Chief
Mathews , of the Council BluQ's depart
It is stated by those who have known
the girl that tlio woman who brought her
to this city is not entirely to blame , and
that this young lady was. . not as innocent
when she came fo this city as she might
have been. The Mercer girl declares she
doesn't want to go back to her parents ,
but will leave the city as soon as possible.
A Glided Me ltd Sharper.
Hobbic Hros. , the ticket brokers , came
very near being taken in last night by a
slick rascal whoso namoiifi unknown. Ho
entered their ollico evidently in a great
hurry , nnd asked lor a ticket to a western
point , which was furnished him. In pay
ment he laid on the counter what was
supposed to be a live-dollar gold piece
and hurried away. After ho had been
gone a tew minutes Mr. llobbie discov
ered that the money was simply a now
nickel , without the "cents , " which had
been gilded. An officer was at once sent
to the depot , and after a short search
captured the man as he was boarding the
west bound train. When accused of the
crimp he ollered to settle with Hobbio for
tlio ticket and upon doing so he was re
leased and went on his way rejoicing.
The Dead Man Identified.
Andrew Hovamlo was the man instant
ly killed at the east end of the Union
Pacificjyards Wednesday evening by being
run over by a switch engine. Benjamin
Johnson came into the coroner's
ollice yesterday morning and identified
the body that of a black
smith , Andrew Tlovnndo , living
at the corner of Seventh and Jones
An inquest was held in the morning , at
which the facts as given above were de
veloped. Tlio Kuddest'part of the tragedy
is that the wife of the unfortunate man is
to bo confined shortly.
Ahout Two Murder Cases.
District Attorney Kstello returned from
Lincoln yesterday afternoon whore ho
argued the motion in the lialhird murder
case before the supreme court. The ar
guments , he said , lasted for about live
hours , and were full anil comprehensive ,
but just when the decision will bo ren
dered is uncertain. Ho is of the opinion.
however , that lialhird will not be granted

Some days ago , it may bo remembered ,
Michael lluss , a llohcmian who had just
come to Omaha , was arrested at the
instance of Michael Hlplc , a follow-coun-
tryman , on a charge of obtaining goods
under false pretenses. The story told by
Uiplo was that Huss had been entrusted
by his ( Uiplo's ) relatives with sonic goods
In the .oid country to bring to America
and deliver to lliplo. When lluss came ,
however , ho did not have the goods , say
ing they had been taken away from him
in Hamburg. KIple did not believe the
story nnd had lluss arrested. The case
was continued in police court until 3-cs-
tcrday , when it was called for trial. In
Iho meantime u letter had boon received
from Hiple's mother in the old country
saying that the goods she had sent by
Huss had been returned to her by . the
custom ofiicials , ns the duty had not been
paid on them at Hamburg. This corrobo
rated lliiss' story , and ho was accord
ingly discharged by Judge Stcnberg.
lUplo , however , was not satisfied , and
wanted to settle the mutter by n light In
tlio police court. A personal coiillict was
with difficulty prevented by the ofiicers.
Ic ! Narrowly Missed It
"I came pretty near seeing snakes last
night , judge , " faid a man arraigned in
police court yesterday morning. "A little
and I would have had to tackle the jim-
jams. Send me to jail and let me sober
up. I'm a total wreck. Heaven knows
what's going to become of mo. "
"You're sentenced to ten days in tlio
county jail , " said Judge Stenbcrg ; 1
guess that'll ! ! Itn ntltillnrli . "
"Say , pard , " said tno prisoner , ns ho
took nis scat , "say ' pard ( addressing
Court Ofllcor Whalen ) , can't you got me
ono drink of whisky before I go up on
the hill ? "
The "cold tea" nourishment was given
the poor fellow by Officer Whalen. and
then , after solemnly pledging himself to
temperance for the rest of his lite , the
unfortunate who had so narrowly missed
"seeing snakes" was wnisked oft" to the
county jail. _
