A MODEL FASIILiY HOW.
The AVIfo Alleges nnd the Husband
JudgeStonborg lias issued a warrant
for the arrest of a man by the nameof
Ned L'hllbrick for hoatinj ; his wife. If
the story of the woman bo half true , the
follow is nothing loai than n brute in
Mrs Philbrick's story aS' told to Judge
Stcnbcrg is pitiful in the extreme. Bho
is but 28 j'cars of age , and has been mar
ried to Mr. P. for seven years. For the
past year or so Phllbrlck , who is a cigar
maker , has been abusive , cruel , and has
failed lo provide support for Jils family.
Mrs. I'hUbriek says that for the last four
days she has had nothing to oat but
bread and water , and that when she
asktul her husband lo bring homo some
moat ho struck her down. Their young
est child is an infant still in arms , and so
nearly starved .is the mother that she is
almost unable to nurse It. The woman
was turned over to Oflicor James of the
Law and Order league , who secured aid
for her from the county commissioners
and Womcns' Christian Aid association.
Philbrick when arrested had on his per
son $20. Ho has been balled out and his
trial will como oft'this week.
The nbovo is from last evening's DEB ,
find is in substance what the woman
said. The following is Philbriok's de
Ho denies nlmcst everything alleged by
Ins wifo. Philbriek admits that should go
to the Women's Christian Aid society and

essary , as ho has always provided food
for his family. Ho says iv little family

whoso mother is at the bottom of the
whole thing is making as much trouble
as possible for him. Ills wife , ho says ,
denies that she made the above allega

to got meal , and he knocking her down , ho
says lhat , instead of anything like it , she

Sonic of Contractor Fox's Workmen
Yesterday the gang of workmen in the
employ of Contractor Fox , who are doing
the grading on Seventeenth and Harnov
streets , "walked out. " It seems that
about noon the work was down to ono
small point , and having thirty-six teams
at work Air. Fox decided that ho would
lay off six of them , as they could not all
work to an advantage , the dump being
too small. Only nine mon were kept on
the dump , and they could not handle all
the dirt. Ho gave orders lo his son to
lay oft" these learns , naming only ono man
named O'Doll , an affigator who must
go anyway , and lold the young man to
use Ins own discretion as to the rest.
This was done. O'Dell ' , alias "tho Mayor
of Council HUuTs , " influenced the other
men to leave work and support him ,
ho wishing to go to work again. Mr.
Fox wont up there about 3 o'clock , and
found all the mon on a strike. He slated
the facts to the men , and ten or fifteen
teamsters returned to work. Those , how
ever , could not keep the workmen some
ninety in number busy , so the contrac
tor ordered all work stopped for the day ,
and that all , except O'Dell , who wanted
to go to. work again could do so this
morninc. The above is a part of Mr.
Tox's statement of the affair , and is cor
roborated'by several of the workmen.
"A Bunch of Keys" at the Boyd Fri
day Night "MIlss. "
Ono of the best of Hoyt's merry pieces ,
"A Hunch of Keys , " will bo presented at
the Boyd Friday and Saturday nights ,
with a Saturday matinee interspersed.
The play is now nearly at the end of its
fourth season , and creates as much laugh
ter as when it was first produced upon
the boards. It certainly id not the highest
form of dramatic art , but people who go
to the theatre to be amused prefer it to amore
moro dignified and sombre entertainment.
It's dialogue is pure crisp and witty , null
its situations , never descending to the
vulgar , are productive of great mirth.
The company , under the management of
the popular Frank Sangcr , is one of the
best of its kind over placed upon the
stage , and has won so many successes
lhat n failure with thorn is almost an im
possibility. The goats went on sale this
morning , and Iho rapidity -with which
they were disposed of attested to the
popularity of the play.

To the Editor ot the Um : : I thin ) : it
about time for the Omaha board of trade
to stiffen up its backbone and make the
atlcmlanco of Uiu membership ; at its
meetings compulsory. ThU is olloctunlly
done in other places and there is no
reason'why ' wo shouldn't have the same
thing hero. Ono of Omaha's greatest
needs is a powerful , nclivo commercial
body lo promote the interests of the city
in Ihe race with its competitors. This the
board of trade was created to do , as well
as to make a place of common resort ,
where our business men can congregate
at convenient hours , transact business ,
meet and introduce strangers , etc. , oto.
As it is now a slranger has to nearly run
his legs off if lie wishes to moot any
number of our principal men , in their
widely sopar.iled places of business.
This is all well enough in a village , but
in a cily like Omaha , approaching 80,000
people , it is very unbusiness-liko and
away behind Iho times. Strangers can
not afford it and besides they won't waste
their energies in any such foolishness.
Doubtless Omaha has missed many line
opportunities to secure capital and busi
ness enterprises because tnoso strangers
have no convenient place to meet the
mon they want to see in the day time ,
without frequently exhausting them
selves in what is often "a
wild goose chase" for the reason ,
when they got to the ollico
of the man they want to see ho is likely
to be oil somewhere else.
The board should bo on the alert for
Etrancors anil capitalists seeking loca
tions and investments hero , and bo atten
tive lo them , instead ol throwing
the burden on Iho Omaha club and
individuals , as itis done now. It should
compel its membership of 140 lo respect
its authority , nnd when matters nro re
ferred to committees they should bo
given to understand that tno board in-
toads to do Iho work , or else il will know
the reason why , with such penalties as
the board is enabled to inllict. It might
as well bo understood first as last that
Omaha cannot permanently sustain her
present remarkable growth unless newcomers
comers nnd capitalists have nvcnucs of
employment opened for them. Omaha
expects this from Ilia board of trade , and
that body will bo wanting in its duty if it
neglects to compel its full membership to
take hold of thu thing and work with a
will. It is done else where and it can bo
While the board is about it , in the ef
forts to secure manufacturers , those al-
ivuly : huro should meet with the same
encouragement extended to outsiders ,
whpiiovor they jvibh to enlarge or remove
to moro convenient locations. Some of
the greatest manutacturing es

UKE , returned a ynrdict to the effect that
the child was bom deadowiug to causes

child. Yesterday Vance called nt

The Cause of if , D ; Carpenter's Untimely
Demise , Stil | a Mystery <
WHO PURCH SEb THE MORPHINE
A Complete In vcfiUgatlon of the Fncts
of Carpenter's ! Alleged. Suicide
Urines to'ljlehl Some Peon-
Sornctlilnfj Now a ml Interesting.
The cause of the death of the late Wil
Hum D. Carpenter , which occurred last
week Thursday , is still shrouded in mys
tery. Various llicorios have been nd <
vnncod to account for It , with more or
less degree of plausibility. The coroner's
jury , after a cursory examination into
the facts , returned the verdict that the
deceased "mot his death from a dose of
poison administered by himself. " The
nature of the poison , so says the verdict ,
was unknown to the jury , but from the
evidence was supposed to bo'morphine. '
This verdict , uncompleto as it Is , was
unsatisfactory to the friends nnd rela
tives of the late Mr. Carpenter , ns well
ns to the general public. No blame is
attached to the coroner , but it Is thought
that under the existing circumstances n
more thorough investigation might have
been had. The young man's father en
tirely discredits the idea of suicide , but
is unwilling to stale what ho believes to
bo the true theory in regard to his death.
In view of these circumstances n re
porter visited Iho scene of Iho young
man's death yesterday afternoon nnd
ascertained certain facts which may pos
sibly throw some light upon the matter.
Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter live in a small ,
one-story , two room house a few rods
south of tlie shot tower. The house is sur
rounded'by a growth of underbrush and
is aecc'ssiblo only by abrullc , path being
back about forty rods from the main
road. A Gannon family who cannot
speak English live next door to them ,
and asfdolrom them they have no neigh
bors. The house stands in the name of
Mrs. Carpenter who bought it with her
own money. Where she obtained the
money to purchase thu house and the
lot upon which it is situated
she docs not state , but a
friend of hers claims that she made the
purchase out of her earnings : is a seam
stress. A thorough invcstigatian would
From her own and the testimony of her
friends Mrs. Carpenter is a much worried
woman. She is rather above the medi
um , and neither stout nor slender. She
has n dark , sallow complexion and black
eyes with small pupils , which , how
ever , dilate wlich she is in n state of ex
citement. Her. first ( husband was a man
by the name of Mcltlnley , by whom she
had a daughter whofdiou about two years
ago. Kd HartdhauT'noxt sustained the
martial relations witli her , and after him
came a man named Kendall. McGregory
and Green are also 'Tiioiitionetl ' as being
on intimate ' terms with her ,
but whether . .ornot the wedding
knot was ovpr tied is uncertain.
That she was married inn bona fide man
ner to Carpoutoc is , .however , proven be
yond a doubt ' .is she has a marriage
ccrtifioatnsigncd InSb' ' February by a well
known justice ; of-tho peace in Council
Mrs. Carpenter has a friend named
Annie . .Nicholsonwho according to the
people-in the vicinity has Dccoiiid'ds-
-tranged from herp'arcnts and is inclined
to bo n little wayward. She is rather a
prettygirl about 18 years old _ , with eyes
that spcak'volumcs to the intelligent ob
server. When seen by a reporter for the
phlegmatic looking man named Bruce ,
who lives in the neighborhood. The girl
was subjected to a volley of questions
which she answered in a calm , matter
of fact manner. She told the story of
seeing- Carpenter take something
from under his mattress , lie
was Jn bed al the time. a few
minutes before his death and piace.it un-
dot the bed covering. Just what this
was she said that she did not know , as at
this point she went out of the room to
call Mrs. Carpenter , who was fccding'tho
chickens. She said that she heard -him
wfllk across the floor.
The theory advanced at the time , and
which was accepted by the coroner's
jury , was that the package removed from
the mattress contained the morphine
which caused his death , and that when
ho walked across the room he placed the
paper containing the powder in the
stove. The bed in which ho was lying
was , in the front , and near it was
an ordinary Hal-topped kitchen stove.
The girl stated that she did not hear him
open the' doors to the stove or re
move the lids , although she 'could
hear him walking across the lloftr.
No paper such as that used by druggists
in wrapping up powders could at the
time bo discovered , but the next day
Annie found a serai ) about two inches
square under the bureau. The coroner ,
however , who examined the premises
at the tlmo , could lind nothing.
In the immediate vicinity llioro lives a
man by tiio name of Joe Hill , with whom
Carpenter slept the night before. Hill ,
who was next visited by the reporter , is
a man about45 years old , with a peculiar ,
gri//.hud board. Ho was in a loquaoioiis
mood , and when spoken to about Mrs.
Carpenter blurted out : "I'll help her.
I'll go down to the meeting to-night and
clear her. "
"S s sh , " said his wife angrily.
" ( Jo b-1. "
to - you - ,
was the trouble she got for her pains.
Hill then went on to state that liu had
been out with Carpenter the night before
his death , and had slept with him at the
Kvans house , a small hotel on
Vinton street. The next morning
Jio stated that ho wont with him to the
drug store of 111 Hassmusson , No. IfiOl
Venter street , whero'Carpentcr procured
S5 cents' worth ol'mwrphino , paying for
it with a silver jlQllar , which lie took
from his vest pocket * Ho says that the
drug was put up'iyWlr. Rnssmusson him
self , who dividi'4)-itijnto four powders.
wrapped it up iivTa 'piece of paper , and
told him to take < 5u61 > owdor at a dose.
Ilassmusson isbno of the most highly
respected men in-South Omaha , and his
neighbors say that lite word can bo de
pended on implicitly. Ho told the re
porter lasl niglij/tflniV Carpenter was not
in his store the morning of his death , and
that moreover luv'naVer sold him a grain
of morphine. H)9olork ) , who was also
scon , said that hcnvas out of town on the
day in quesliqn and that ho had
never given Carpenter the sopovilio.
Ho stated , however , that Itassmussou's
predecessor In the drugstore told him
( hat ho had often dispensed bottles of
morphine to Mrs , Carnenlor. whom ho
took to bo a victim of the habit. Further
more Hasamusspn denied ever selling
Carpenter liquor of any description , al
though Mrd. Carpenter stilled to a re
porter her husband was in the habit of
obtaining liquor al the drug store mid
that she had warned Itassmusacn against
felling it to him.
It was not a difHcult matter to trace
Carpenter's proceedings on the morning
of his death. Ho undoubtedly spent UIQ
previous night at the Kvans house , as
claimed by Hill. Ho arose thu
next morning at 8 o'clock and
ate a light breakfast. Ho then
blurted out with Hill to' Flannery's sa
loon nwliero ho mot a man named
Kugcno 1'lckert , Ho and L'iokwt drank-
three or four glasses of boor togi-ther and
started out iu the direction oT Carpenter's
homo. They left between 11:30 : and 13
o'clock , ana according to the statement
of Flahliery , who saw them depart , were
both perfectly sober at the tlmo. Car
penter's wife , however , nssorvatcd lime
and again to a UKE reporter thai her hus
band came homo between 11 and 13
o'clock In a slate of beastly intoxication.
Jho distance from the saloon to his
house is perhaps a mile , and , if the wife's
statement Ls true , during the not more
lhan half hour occupied in Iravcrslng it
he became so much intoxicated that ho
was unable to stand up but was brought
homo by one of the neighbors named
I'aulscn , who assisted her to put him on
the bed ,
Aunio Nicholson stated that Carpenter
and his wife lived on happy Icrms
with each oilier and as far as she knew
did not quarrel. Mrs. Carpenter , how
ever , admitlcd lhat they had numerous
family rows of more consequence.
The neighbors state the same.
Mrs. Carpenter does not deny thai she
lived on terms of intimacy with her hus
band for a long time before Iho marriage
vows were performed.
The neighbors agree to this statement.
Mrs. Carpenter admits that her hus
band was of a jealous disposition and
that she partook of his nature in this
The neighbors state that this was the
fact according to their observation.
It is also maintained that her former
admirers or husbands , as she was pleased
to oall them , were In the habit of paying
her visits alter her marriage to Carpen
ter. Whether ho know of tills or not is
unknown. Carpoulcr'sfather often tried
to got him to sorer his allegiance to the
woman , but he steadily refused to do so.
-Mr. Carpenter , sr. , has made a tour of Iho
drug stores in the vicinity and can lind
none which over sold his son any mor
phine. Moreover , his wife says ho never
took the drug and that it had never been
kept Jii the house.
Ilolmgrccn , the druggist , states thai ho
has repeatedly sold Mrs. Carpenter largo
bottles of morphine.
In view of these facts it would seem
lhat.tlio mystery of Carpenter's untimely
demise is as great as ever.

Two Men Enter the tilcncoo Mills and
Capture the Till.
Yesterday afternoon at about f > o'clock
the Glencoo mills till was taken out of
the ollico. It seems that for : i half an
hour a couple of follows had been hang
ing around the mills , but conducted
themselves in such a manner as to excite
no suspicions. The mills proper are in
the rear of the building , with a small
ollico in front. The money is kept in a
till in this ollicc , and as they have had no
trouble heretofore" , not much attention
was paid to it , sometimes no ono a't all
being in the oflico. These follows wore
aware of tiiis , probably , and while the
ollicc was vacated , at about tiio hour
named , they walked deliberately in and
one follow took the till under his arm and
walked out of the building. They were
scon , however , and a chase was insti
tuted. They ran down through the alloy
between Nichols and Izard streets , then
into another alloy between Sixteenth and
Seventeenth streets , where they wore
captured by a man on horseback. 15y
this time quite a crowd wore in thu
ranks of purunors , but when slopped by
the horseman ono of the robbers yelled to
bo'loLalonc , and they would settle it. At
thii same time ho handed over the till
containing the money ho drew a revolver ,
which ( < o frightened his capturor that
both the fellows escaped. There was
about 10 in the till.
John Golden was arrested lasl night on
suspicion of being one of thu thieves , and
also William Hurl. The arrests were
niiulo by Olliecr Koso.
About 3 o'clock yesterday a team
attached lo a coal wagon came dashing
around the corner of Howard and Thir
teenth streets. They were making a
mad rane for supremacy over the driver.
Mossrti. Frank and U. F. Smith were in a
buggy belonging lo ( Ionian's livery fita-
bio ana jiift going to turn in. They
heard ( lie yells of the driver of Iho runa
way , but could not got out of the way ,
and the team ran into thpbuggysmashing
the uxio and tearing oh" ono hind wheel.
Hoth gentlemen wore thrown out , but
happily sustained no injury. The runa
way team was stopped on Harnoy eireel

A New Speaker Last NlRht Scones
and InoldontB ,
Ten Chinamen silting near Iho pulpit
looked very wise and solemn ns the choir
opened the revival service Cnl
Iho Exposition building last night.
Their song was "Havo Yon the
Garment of White ? " and the Mongolians
appeared to join in the music , though It
is much to bo doubted whether half of
them know what they were singing
Another song followed in which the
rod-faced young man who handles the
balon got woefully out of time , nnd man
aged to keep three or four swings behind
the choir. Still ho struggled manfully on.
A very small infant in ono of the front
rows intermingled its prattling with the
"amcns" nnd "Lord "
, grant its" which
accompanied tbo opening prayer by Hov.
Broderick. This circumstance did not in
the least wise nuuoy the divine , who
made a most powerful plea for the descent
scent of the Holy Spirit.
Moro singing followed , the collection
was taken up by a small nrniv of ushers ,
nnd then Hev. Harris , of Ihe First Baptist
church , led in n fervent prayer.
Mr. Hitler advanced lo the cdgo of the
platform , and in a few words introduced
hfs friend and former co-worker. Hov.
Mr. Crcighton , of the St. Paul M. E.
oliurch , tbe speaker of the evening. Ho
commenced by nlludina to Mr. Hitler's
work in other cities , which , he said , had
been a good one ,
"Tho worst town ( but ono ) t over saw , "
ho said , "was Gnlllpolis , n river town on
the Ohio. ( The ono city I refer to is
Omaha. ] well , this city on the Ohio wns
n wicked place , with a bad reputation
abroad. It was the centre for river trndo
and a sort of headquarters for the gam
blers , and other disreputable characters.
I worked with Brother Hitler in Galh-
polls , and a most glorious work ho ac
complished COO souls being converted.
At Circlovillo , Ohio , Brother Hitler
worked In the revival , nnd 010 conver
sions followed. At Lincoln , where Mr.
Bitlcr came out to help mo at my solici
tation , there were 800 conversions. New
1 don't believe Omaha is any worse than
Lincoln nnd what God ean do there ho
can do hero. I believe you are going to
have a great revival hero , something the
like of which you never saw before.
"Now the first tliing'wonced , to have a
great revival , is to get 'loosened un. ' 1
don't mean anything rude or crude , or
anything that won't bear criticism. We
must have a free nnd easy spirit among
us that will enable us to work with and
lead the sinners to Christ. "
The speaker said that in his church at
Lincoln there were deep earnest prayers
being made for the revival in Omaha.
"A constant incense of intercession is
going up to heaven for the success of the
work in this city , " ho remarked.
The revornou gentleman's remarks
were rather rambling. This ho recognized -
nizod himself half apologetically , us ho
said , looking towards the reporters'
table , "I am afraid that it thi.s speech is
reported correctly that it will make a
rather poor showing. "
Mr. Crcighton then spoke briefly of the
necessary element of conversion. "Yon
must have humility , " ho said , ' 'must bo
ready to humble yourself before God.
When Henry Clay was dying a clergy
man wns called in to pray with him. Ho
started oil'by praising the dying man
by telling God what a great , good , glori
ous being Henry Clay was. 'Stop that , '
said the ayiug man , 'God will damn us
both. ' The wise , old statesman , standing
on the brink of the grave , knew that ho
must humble himselt before God. "
The reverend gentleman denictctl very
strongly the terrors of sin. "Get out of
the way of your life of iniquity , " ho
cried. "Give up yourself to God , and get
from untter the million mountains of sin
which are tumbling upon you. Think of
eternity , and if you don't tremble you
arc not a thinker. By the height of
heaven , by the depths of hell , by an
awful eternity , I asK.you to think think
on the momentous subject of the salva
tion of your precious soul.
"If God should ilo the very best thing
ho could do for you I'll ' tell yon what it
would bo. Ho would lead you all lo re-
pentence. May God liless yon every ono
and give you a thousand souls is my
earnest prayer. "
As on the previous evening , Ucv. Hitler
invited all those \ylio were scokiuir Jesus
to come inlo the inquiry room after the
service. An invitation was extended to
all who were Christians in the audience
to arise. About nine-tenths of those
present stood up , including the China-
men , who after looking atone another in-
ouiringly for a moment , rose in a body.
They appeared to bo very much pleased
about something. Ever nnd anon they
would nudge one another , and laugh
"Suppose now , " fiaid Mr. Hitler ,
"we nave a good , old-fashioned
tima of handshaking and ex
hortation. " His suggestion was readily
complied with , and the congregation
bcznn to "circulate. " Christian shook
hand with Christian , and the sinner came
in for his share of encouragement. The
reporters' stand scorned If ) , bo the central
point of attack. The newspaper mon
responded well , dropped their pencils
anil paper , anil gave themselves over
to a brief season ot handshaking. Some
of the moro earnest of the workers
plead earnestly with the scribes , trying
to point out ( o them the right path. They
wore obliged to give it up after a time ,
without , it must bo confessed , having
minion deep impression. One very earnest -
nest old lady foil lo exhorting a bald-
headed member of tbo journaliMlo craft
to turn from his evil ways. She , too , was
obliged to retreat.
At thoconnluslonof the services , many
seekers crowded into the inquiry room.
A number of conversions followed. Hov.
Mi. Creighton , who is really ono of the
irtol eloquent speakers In the Methodist
churoli , will speak this afternoon and
possibly in the evening.

CHICAGO , April li. | Special Telesmm. ]
WIIIA.T : Speculation remains In the
Imiuls of professionals or under tUclr control
largely. For two years the country held the
Chicago market huail and shoulders above the
markets ot the whole vorld , niul the world
has been riding It. While speculation \vas
bulling the market for forward delivery thu
railroads nnd local elevators Imvo been chilk-
lug the cash trade to death , Iho former by
uiainlalnluK poola which operated against
Chicago , and the latter by exacting higher
transfer and storage charges than Is the rule
in other eltlos. Tired bulls having Inkl down
their loads , Chicago has dropped to a point
relatively below nny other market In the
world , and Iho bears insist lhat there nro
depths to the ocean lower than any so'uml-
IIIKS have yet disclosed , and that VvheiU must
Ret there before Iho market widens and pcritia-
nciit Improvement and relief can bo hoped for.
The market opened to-day at n loss from yes
terday nflcrunon of 1-Cc , and not long after
ward May was quoted at 70c. The olllclal
llgurcs jjlvo TU c as Iho lowestbut the trades
on stop orders wore made J/c cheaper In sev
eral cases , it was said In Iho pit. "This is
Iho lowest point ever reached for May op-
lion , " said an old trader , stooping out of the
crowd , At that moment the May quotation
was He under Now York , Sjtfc under St ,
Louis and SJrfe uiulor Duluth. It was whis
pered abuut. that Cudahy had sold n largo Hue
of put yesterday with the Intention of break
ing the market , having wheat put to him to
day. A well grounded Impression that there
wa's something to the gossip made the crowd
very timid about bearing prices , and later ,
when brokers , supposed to bo representing a
great speculator , began buying , "sniait
ones" were continued iu their sus
picions , and from then on the
market took upon Itself llrmer tone : ! .
It Is * Cudahy's favorite play to cover his
shorts In the manner described by adroit
manipulation. lie succeeded In covering an
enormous line of wheat without disturbing
the market In the slightest degree , flo lots
Iho crowd play his hand. It covers his wheat
for him and pays him SI per 1,000 bushels for
Hie privilege of doing It. The 1 o'clock clos
ing was at the best prlco obtainable IIP to
that time , the last trades In May being at 77 ®
77 c and Juno at 7S ; @T9c.

away , but the market .subsequently gntheicd
itself together somewhat and quotations
underwent no serious change from those
posted on record. ,
AFTIKXOON : JJoAim At the close of busi
