A Mysterious Case.
' The medical fraternity of the city are
much interested in n mysterious poison
ing case , very similar to that of the Mur
phy family , in which , as will bo remem
bered ex-Mayor Murphy died some
months ngo , after violent nnd sudden
symptoms. The alllleted family this time
was that of Mrs. Jane Dort , her two chil
dren nnd grand children , living on
flftoccn nml Davenport streets , next to
the Baptist church.
Mrs. Jane Dort , the mother , died at t
o'clock Tuesday , after n few days ill
ness , the other members of the family
having recovered. The circumstances of
tlio mysterious case , as Investigated by a
reporter of Ihe Her. to-day , areas follows :
On last Friday morning , shortly after
breakfast , Mrs. Jane Dorl , who is : i lady
of about IM years of age , was sud
denly taken ill. In a few moments the
pen and daughter , Lon and Li Hie
Dort , ngetl about ! 2l ! nnd SI
p years , wcro also taken down in a similar
i manner , as well us the granddaughter
ter , Kdna , n littlngirl 5 or 0 years of age.
The symptoms in each case weie those of
violent purging and vomiting , accom
panied by sovuro pains In the stomach
nnd bowels. In thuolosqof Mrs. Dorl thu
symptoms wcro Ivory violent , and the
vomiting kept tin from day to day with
( Uich olstinacv.tliaton ) Tuesday evening ,
death resulted from sheer physical ex
haustion. In the other cases , the symp
toms wcro less pronounced , and ns
already mentioned , the two girls anil the
young man have about recovered.
The cause of the mysterious poisoning :
is absolutely unknown. All sort ot
theories have been pressed into service to
afford an explanation. One supposition
was that the poisoning was caused by a
niulton steak which the family ate that
morning , but careful examination has
convinced Drs. Umsmoor and Parcel ! ,
who attended the case , that the sickness
jould not have resulted in that way. The
initchor from whom the meat was pur-
phased certifies that it w.ts perfectly
jwect and untainted , and that other
families , none of whom have experienced
any sickness , wore supplied oil' the same
piece. Other theories have been followed
up but none of them have thrown a par-
lielo of light upon the mystery.
"The ease is certainly 11 very strange
one , " said Dr. Dinsmoor to a reporter
yestcnlnyin speaking of the matter.
' 'The symptoms in all the cases wore
those ot gastricinllammation , which may
have been caused by the patient's swallow
ing some poison , or may have resulted
from malarial influences. "
"Hut how did it hapncn that the four
members of the family were all taken
down at the same time and in the same
"Tliatis the question which most careful
> Investigation lias failed to answer.
J Both Dr. Parcell and myself have
searched high and low to find some cause
( or the mysterious sickness , but so far wo
have been balllod in every direction. _ It
could not have resulted from the eating
nf the mutton , for other families partook
of the same meat and were not effected
n particle. It could not have
been caused by something in tlio
well from which the Dort family drank
[ as was thought at ono time ) for other
| ) | families on tlio same street use the same
well , and they have not been taken ill.
Tlio house has been thoroughly searched
f or poison of some kind , all to no avail.
The children of the family assure us that
no poison could have gotten into the
food , as there was none about the house.
The natural inference is that the poisonIng -
Ing was caused by something
which was caton by all of
the family , but just what that something
is no ono knows , and it seems to be a
mystery past finding out. Really nothing
can bo dotcrniincu definitely about the
matter until n postmortem examination
is mado. The symptoms so far as wo
were able to determine them wore t lose
of gastric inflammation , which may. as I
have said , have been caused by malarial
influences. "
* "No , " continued Dr. Dinsmoor , in an
swering another question of the reporter ,
"I do not know anything about the Mur
phy case , of my own personal observa
tion , and can not say how much this ono
18 like that 1 certainly believe in
ptoniaino poisoning , but do not think
that this cast ) belongs to that class. It is
a mystery that is all I can say about it. "
It is not probable that a ] > est mortem
examination of the body will bo made ,
though It is very desirable in the interests
of science that the mystery should be
fully investigated. The matter , however ,
is of course at thq dictation of the rela
tives of the deceased , who are averse to
ordering u post-mortem. The funeral
will toke place this afternoon at
2 o'clock , from the First Ilaptist church.
Charges of ilrlhory In the Third
tVnnl Wlmt People Say.
People wcro busy yesterday talking
over the result of Tuesday's election ,
which on all sides is considered a tri
umphant victory for thu republicans.
Pat Ford's majority In tno Third ward
has been thu subject of a great deal of
criticism. IJribory has boon openly
charged upon his democratic trionds. It
was stated yesterday that votes wcro
bought and sold in the most flagrant
manner. It is understood that the mat
ter will bo brought to tlio attention of the
district attorney who will be asked
to bring it to the attention of
the next grand jury. Witnesses
to the briberies are easy to liud , but it
will probably bo dillluult to fasten the
blaine upon the proper person. The
honest citizens of the ward arc thoroughly
aroused , and arc willing to use both time
and money to see that the will of thu people
ple shall not bo defeated.
The political complexion of the
council will not bo changed by yester
day's vote but the election will probably
catibu radical changes to bu made in thu
board of education , Tlio only member
of thu boaul entitled to receive any salary
Is the secretary. Mr , Conoyor is the
present incumbent of this oflice , but it is
obalifo that in May no will bo relegated
back to a teat among the members. Thu
indications are that the Hov. W. K.
Copeland will bo his successor , although
an effort will bo made to induce Mr Davis
to become u candidate. Jt is not likely ,
howeyor , that ho would bo willing to give
up hs | law practice to accept a position
ot ( lint nature. Blackburn does not waul
thi ) place and the business of thu othut
member * of tno board is of such a nature
as to ou'lmjo all idea of their candidacy ,
Jkt V Poiitls will , according to a mom
t jf the board , retire from the presi
* , -iit'b chair , which , after tlio May clec
tlon will probably bo lilled by K. K , Long

tcrial as the president only signs the war
rants when ordered by the board.
Mayor lloyd was waited upon by a re
ported for tholiEG yesterday and wasques
Honed about the truth of tno rumor that
ho was about to resign on account of the
result of the election.
"Is it true , Mr. Hoyd"was asked"that
you expect to hand in your resignation ? "
"Iliad intended to do so last night , "
he replied.
"Then you have changed your mind ! "
"No , I won't say that. My friends are
very anxious that I shall remain , Still I
fchall resign unless certain things come to
pass. "
"Have you any objection to stating
what the = o 'certain tilings' are ? "
"Yes , I don't care to say anything
further about the matter. I shall just
state that I can't have things go on as
they have been for the past few mouths.
If it hadn't been for the protestations of
my friends , I would have resigned long
ago at the time the first trouble over
Oumnungs aioso. The fact is that since
I have been in the mayor's olllco , I have
Worked hard tor the city's ' interests and
take a deep interest in her welfare as , In
deed , 1 always have. Vet I have been
abused and misrcpsonted. No I can't
say that I am exactly disappointed at the
result of thu election , though certainly I
had hoped tha it would bo different. It
is not an easy tiling to elect a democratic
council in a city which is republican by a
largo majority. "
It Will Take Plnco on Snmlny Prep
arations on I'"nut ,
Capt. , T. ( jr. Uourko , who accompanied
the remains of Capt. Emmet Crawford
from New Mexico to Kearney , arrived in
the city yesterday. Ho says that the
funeral will take place on Sunday next ,
under the auspices of Hebron Comman-
dory of the Masonic order , to which the
deceased belonged. A large number of
olllcor.- ) from different posts in this de
partment , as well as the oilier depart
ments , are expected to bo in attendance.
Quito a delegation will go down from
Omaha , and arrangements are being
made to have a special tram .sent down
on the Union Pacific. General Howard
haswutten to General Scholicld , division
commander , requesting the privilege of
sending down a full company of in
fiintry from this fort.
The telegraph brings the news that the
Second Infantry is to be transferred from
the department of Columbia to this de
partment. Nothing is known at head
quarters about such a change , as yet.
General Drcck said yesterday the change
would probably be simply be u transfer of
the Second Infantry from the Columbia
and the Ninth Infantry from this depart
The Musical Protective Union Cclc-
Imitc the Day In Fine Style
As early as 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon
the crowds began to collect in front of
the exposition building and by the time
the first wagon drove up to take part
in the Mardi Gras procession , instituted
by the Musical Protective union , the
sidewalks wore lined for blocks with
people. In the early part of the aftei-
noon gaily decorated wagons , bearing
various advertising devices stood at
almost every street corner , wait
ing to bo loaded. At the
exposition the marshals wore
iding about on horseback in vain
trying to keep the crowd within bounds.
As each team came up the driver was
given a number and drove away again to
find the proper place in the procession.
This was one of the gayest throngs over
seen in Omaha. Boys spurred through the
crowd on small ponies , men with hideous
masks piloted their horses through the
masses , small urchins shouted and
jeered and men and women laughed.
Every conceivable oolor was represented
In the costumes of the participants in the
procession and every variety of articles
was carried in the wagons. One enter
prising restaurateur had a cook stove
and cotl'co placed in n hugo wagon and
prepared meals while on route. His
waiters , clad in immaculate white jackets ,
and aprons followed the moyablo kitchen
in barouches. Pyramids of beer kegs
grotesquely decorated wcro piled up in
wagons , and made the thirsty pedestrian
sign for a taste of their contents. Sowing
machines , cigarsdifferent brands of wine ;
in fact , everything produced or made in
Omaha , was represented in the proces
It was 3 o'clock before the marshals
secceeded in getting anything like order
out of the chaotic mass of men , disguised
by more or less frightful masks. The
procession started oil to gay music , ac
companied by the cheers of the crowd.
Windows were thrown open all
along their line of march , and
the corners of the streets were crowded.
The different "organizations composing
the Musical Protective Union were drawn
in handsomely decorated chariots and
furnished the music for the occasion
They mot with a hearty reception trom
all quaitors and it was the universal
opinion that the procession was the finest
over scon in Omaha. The line of march
was as follows : Starting point ex
position building , Fifteenth and Capitol
tel Avenue , south to llarnoy street , easton
on Harnoy to Ninth , noi.n'of . Ninth to
Farnham , west on Farnham to Fifteenth ,
north on Fifteenth to Douglas , west on

John Phillips , a brother of Laura
Phillips whoso tragic suieido was men

city yesterday and took charge of the re
mains of his sister. According to his
direction , the burial took placa at 4
o'clock this afternoon , the interment being -
ing made in Prospect Hill cemetery.
The fact that Laura Phillips conies of
the best family , the unusual charms
of refinement and beauty which invested
her , and the strange note , written
in blood , in which site tells of the
compact made between herself nnd the
devil , combine to make the case ono of
strange and wicrd interest. The parents
of the girl are not aware of thu lifo which

The Exposition BuiKlinj- Engaged for

The Methodist revival is proving such
a great success that the church on D.iven-

opportunity to attend these meet
ings the exposition building lias been
rented for a month , with the exception of
Saturday evenings. The first meeting in
the exposition building will be hold on
next Sunday. It is expected that Rev. C.
P. Creighton , of Lincoln , will be present
all next week and assist in the meetings.
So far ono hundred persons have been
