There was n monster K. of L. meeting
held Sunday afternoon , at which
many representatives of the order
In this city were present. The object of
the meeting , of course , was kept so far as
possible a secret. Ono of the things ac
complished , however , wag the voting of
further financial aid to the strikers on
the Missouri Pacilic system. A system of
assessment was arranged therefor.
Sonio of those who claim to bo on the
inside look mysterious and hint that
thcro is soon to bo a general strike
among the shopmen and trainmen
on the Union Tacilic in support of
the Missouri Pacilic strike. Nothing
definite about the matter is known
at headquarters , though quo gen
tleman of high standing in railroad cir
cles , said that he would not bo at all sur
prised if such n thing wore to occur.
"Tho strikers on the Missouri 1'acilic
who are trotting worsted , " ho said , "feel
dmvii in the mouth , and naturally
enough will resort to desperate means.
I believe that if our employes strike it
will bo purely in sympathy with their
brethren in the south , and not because
they themselves have any grievances
to complain of. "
The conductors and brakeman , al
though they wore paid lor last month's
work on tlio old system , claim that they
have not yet secured a satisfactory ad
justment of their grievances , and will
ykrobably return to seek another con-
lonyico witli the ollicials.

The Union Pacific sends out two sec

now , both heavily loaded with passen
gers , first-class and emigrant.
General Tratllo Manager Kimball , of
the Union Pacific has gone to Denver to
meet the Adams party. The part } ' will
probably travel westward over the lines ,
returning to Omaha in about ten days.
J. T. Clarke , general manager of the
St. Paul road , is now in the city.

MIDNIGHT BlA.lt/VUDEftS. /
An Incident "Which Might Have Fur-
' nlshcd Corpses For the Coroner.
> Early Sunday morning , shortly after
, the hour when "gravo yards yawn , " etc. ,
H ludicrous thing happened at the corner
of Thirteenth and Howard , which will
furnish pleasant recollections lor certain
of the Union Pacilic headquarters clerks
for several years to como.
, Some of the smooth-faced members of
the headquarters force who had just
iboon paid oil' had started out early in the
evening to have a "good time. " Most of
jthoin , as already intimated , wore of
.tender ago , and of that particular class
whoso highest ambition is to bo con-
( aldcrcd "hlgh-rolloraj" who go about
saluting ono another with a " 'ow arc yo ,
chappie , me boy , " after the manner of
the real sports , and otherwise conduct
themselves as characters on the turf
1 The members of the gang had bowled
up at a lively rate during the evening ,
'and as Sunday morning approached ,
ftrow more and more hilarious.
Shortly after midnight some
of the more sober in the party proposed
that a drug btore be visited for the pur.
porso of procuring emetics. All agreed ,
, &nd a bco line WIIH struck for the nearest
drugstore , which happened to bo Spaf.
ford's ' , on the corner of Thirteenth and
Howard. They rattled and banged at the
door , but no answer came. The boys
\yoro determined to procure relief , ami
crow boisterous in their dosiru to get into
the drug store. The night clerk , roused
out of a sownl slumber , saw the mob at
tthudoorand concluding that burglars had
iBwitptdown upon him ma band , jumped
\fromhis \ bed and liral several shots in
quick succession. The U. P. clerks were
thoroughly frightened. They lost no
time in dispersing , Eomorunnlng in one
direction and some in another. The
police cametime just in tinio to cap *
lure ono or two of the lleoing youths.
but upon haring their story released
them at once ,

to ferret out the matter , and though the
Urge gathering of spoiling characters
bout ono of the down-town suloons , and
the sight of loaded hacks departing for
tw west shlo uveiy lu\y moments , gave
confirmation to the suspicions of the
police that "something was about to
drop , " not until the spectators returned
from the scene of the light did Captain
( Jormnck learn positively of what the
"drop" was to be. Ho secured a number
of men and searched every resort in the
city high and low , but failed to find the
light , and , of course , after an hour or so
of bcarching gave up the chase. Sneak
ing of the matter yesterday , Captain
Cormack stint that if ho had Known the

It transpired yesterday that Sheriff
Coburn issued orders Sunday to his deputies -
putios to the olleet that the prize fight must

were scouring the country during the en

looking lot of men than the deputies it

SHAVING J > EA.D MEN
A Loquacious Barber Toll ? Ills Ex
perience With Corpses.
"There goes a $5 job , " saidjv barber at
the Millard yesterdayr "J wish'
ho was my customer , because I'd
take tap job if ho was. Sam , though ,
ain't got no use for shaving dead people. "
The reporter who had overheard the re
mark , took his seat in Sam's chair , and
while his face was being lathered the bar
ber began. "It's hard enough work to
shave Vive men. I often have to shave
tlrunkcn men , but I draw the line at
" \ \ by so ? " inquired the reporter ,
opening his month wide enough to got a
good taste of tno soap.
"Well , in the first place , it's unpleas
ant and then I don't like to monkey
around corpses. Uesides , it dulls your
razors. Do you know the regular prjco
for shaving a dead man ? Seventy-live
cents ? Not much. Wo charge * K > , anil
don't ' hanker for the work oven at that
price. Why , n dead man's beard es
pecially if ho has been dead a few hours
is just like so much wire. It will nick
your razor every time. And then , just
think of it , shaving a man who can't un
derstand n word you say ! Why , it makes
you have the blues for hours. I shaved
a stiff once , and may I never got a good
edge on a razor again if I didn't talk to
him for fifteen minutes without realizing
that ho was dead. I just thought
ho was a cranky customer who didn't '
like to speak to a barber. There is ono
good tiling about it , though , customers
of that kind never kick when you happen
to make a blip and cut their cheek.
"Say , " continued the barber leaning
over in a confidential manner , "do you
know that 1 believe that lots of people
are buried alive. I shaved a dead man once
and before I'd got half through the razor
slipped and cut a deep gash in his neck.
I don't know whether it was nervous
action or not but the man opened his
eyes and blame mo if ho didn't try to
speak. 1 dropped the razor and skipped
and have never shaved a dead man since.
Ho Saw the Elephant.
Charles Nelson and John Fcely are two
rustics from the vicinity of Rule , Neb.
They came to Omaha last week to see the
town. Thoysawit. The sight cost them
exactly ? 180.
They foil in with some disreputable
French women on Twelfth street , and en
tered upon a protracted sprco. Fcely
soon spent all the money ho had. Sun
day afternoon Nelson squandered his
last money , but four or live dollars , upon
a livery rig , and took a young woman-
Viola liusha by name , out for a ride.
Tlioy were arrested soon afterwards , and
tried and lined in polled court yesterday
Nelson paid over all the money ho
had to liquidate the line , and departed
with his comrade Feely , a sadder , out it
is to be hoped , a wiser man.
"Tho next time you come to town , "
said Judge Stenberg , as ho released the
man "don't spend your money on women.
As long as you have cash , they treat you
mighty well. lint just as soon as that's
gone , they throw you overboard. "
Confidence Man Caught.
Saturday morning William Maxwell ,
who was on his way to San Francisco ,
was accosted by a slick-looking fellow ,
in a saloon on Tenth street , who n&kcil
him where ho wasgolng. On being told ,
the fellow , wliose name Is George Dell ,
said ho was going to the same place ;
that he had no small change , but did have
a big cheek ; would Maxwell let him have
some money , take the check and then go
to the depot and watch his buggago ?
Yes , Maxwell was obliging and wouluuo
BO , giving him all but * ! tfiOot his money.
On inquiring at the depot for Hull's baggage -
gage , ho was informed that noonebv that
name had anything atthodopot. and was
advibcd to report the matter to the police ,
lie did to , and tlioy have betm on the
lookout tor nlm over since. Snndas night
Ollleor O'Gradyspotted [ him and took
him to the lockup.
