A Youth Prom Virginia llcCusos to

Stonewall Coskrill is the name of a
plucky UO year-old boy from Virginia.
IIu came to Nebraska on Saturday night ,
to grow up with the country. Yesterday
he fell into the clutches of two confnlenco
men. He halllutt them , and now they are
behind the bars.
The two "con" men , whew name ? are
John Shea nnd I ) . C. Miller , trh-d to
"work" him on the old plan. To quote
the boy's words : " 1 came here from the
Hind's on Saturday and wont to the Union
Pacific headquarters to sco if I couldn't
get work on somn of thu ratlro.vl con
struction gangs. They told mo to comeback
back again , i'ld-t morning 1 went to the
headquarters again , and while going in
the door these two fellows mot me. The
oldest of them asked mo if I wanted to
work , 1 told him that 1 had come to Ne
braska for that purpose. Then ho said
something about having some goods at
the depot that he coulan'l. get until ho
paid $80. If I would get them out ho
would give mo steady employment. I
told him that I would think of it and let
him know later. In the meanwhile [
started down to the depot , as the people
in the headquarters told mo that 1
could get work on one of the construc
tion gangs. 1 met the two men at the
depot again add pointed them out to the
police. The policeman told njo after
wards that the two fellows were "con
men" and wore trying to cheat mo. 1
didn't think anything about that at the
time , but , you bet , I lunglad that Fdidn't '
give up my money. "
Shea and Miller answer tlio description
of a brace of confidence crooks who have
been oncratimr in the city for a month
past. They will bo prosecuted for all
there is in _ the case , and. as Coekrill
tells a straight story , it will doubtless go

Mr. Slicltoti "Writes a Carrt lit
To the Editor : If you will look over
the gas papers in the hands of the city
council , you will Iind that an ordinance ,
is before that body to give to the Citizens
Gas company a franchise to erect gas
works in this city. The ordinance pro
vides that the Citizens'Gas company shall
supply the people with gas of at least
sixteen , candle newer and at a price not
to exceed § 1.150 per 1,000 feet for the first
five years and after that the city council
to regulate the price. It also gives the
city the right to purchase the works at
any time after their completion at their
cost with six per cent interest
added. It also provided for
proper conditions for laying the mains
on the streets and replacing the
pavements in as good a condition as be
fore ; a thing the old company has not
done. . All that the Citizens' Gas com
pany ask is that the council rescind the
exclusive privilege given the old com-
panv , and give them a franchise the same
as that asked for by the now company.
Then the old company would have every
advantage , as'they now have their
works in operation , and have the cus
tom of nearly all the buildings.
Dons the old gas company fear fair com-
Cetition ? If not , why do they object to
eing put on the same footing as asked
by the now company ? Without n repeal
of the old ordinance the now company
would bo exposed to litigation anil all
the annoyances and expenses attending
it. All they ask of the council is a fair
Whether the now company gets a
franchise ) on these terms or not the neo-
pie can thank them for forcing the old
company to reduce the price of gas from

John Kelley , a notorious crook , was
arrested yoslurday by Officer O'Uoylo , on
Sixteenth street , for stealing a watch
from a lady In the Estabrook block.
Kelley , it seems , had gone up into this
buildinc on the corner of Sixteenth and
Chicago streets , ostensibly to beg a meal.
He approached a lady , Mrs. Rohm , living
on the third lloor , and asked her for
something to eat. Shu replied that she
would gladly help him if ho needed it ,
but that she was moving , and too busy to
attend to his wants. Kelley fooled
around a short time longer , and then dis
appeared. He had not been gone a mo

Ail interesting case is in progress in
the district court , In which the lion , Wil
liam A. I'axton , of this city , lignres as de
fendant. The case , as gleaned from the
petitions In court , is as follows ; In 1883
A. E. Hooker , a prominent cattle
man , died in Holt county , Ne
braska A herd of100 cattle
formed a part of the estate of which II.
11. McEvoeny has been appointed admin
istrator , The cattle were in the posses
sion of W.J. Hooker , a brother of the
deceased , who refused to deliver the stock
to the administrutior , The admistrator
then got possession of the cattle by the
replevin process , but W. J.
Hooker and men in his em
ploy look forcible possession
of tlio herd and drove them into Dakota
and sold them to Mr. I'axton for $11,000.
The administrator then brought suit to
secure the money for the stock , accepting
the terms of Hooker's alleged illegal sale.
Hooker has also brought a suit to recov
er the same amount. Mr , I'axton is
ready to pay Hooker or the
administrator , but don't care about
paying twice for the cattle. The case in
question now .is to determine the owner-
snip of the cattle at the time of the sale to
Mr. I'axton. Messrs. Cowin and kin-
kaiil appear for W. J. Hooker and Thurs-

Secured fur Tills City ,
Tlio Foundry nnd Machine Simp.
A few days ngo , the UBE published mi
article expressing tlio belief that the
Usher & Russell foundry nnd machine
shop of Kansas City , Mo. , and Lawrence ,
Kau , was about to locate in tills city. It now
reverts to the subject and announces that
thcfio works will positively be located
here and in running order by the IBth of
next Juno. They will bo built in the
cast i of block 5 , Bedford Place , a track
of land lying south and West of the fair
grounds. The location is on ono of tlio
best sites on tlio Hell line , and sillHciontly
near the city to bo of advantage for
'iliis important determination was
made but a day ago and Is now for tlw
first time given to tlio public. Tlio works
will bo divided into twcplnrgjo' buildings ,
willi u number of smaller ones. This
former will bo respectively 70xlW and
10x150 feet , and will be of both brink and
frame. They win give employment to
from 75 to 150 men throughout the year.
To establish tlieso shops the plant of
Usher & Russell now located at the
points above speciliod. will bo moved
here entire. This linn pas a number of
contracts to bo fulfilled in the future , the
work of which will be commenced imme
diately after tl.o same are opened.
They make all kinds of castings and
turn out excellent wi ought iron work ,
according to design. They have : i heavy
contract with the Union 1'acllc , and ox-
poet to turn out for them a great deal of the
work I hey employ injho running of their
stock. Tlio fact of this contract with the
Union 1'aeilie rather led to the under
standing that when this firm should de
cide to locate here , the Union Pacific
would be accorded the right of selecting
the site. In view , however , of Messrs.
Bedford ite Sour's proposition which waste
to donate to Usher & Russell the ground
required for their works , the road waived
its right in the premises. Accordingly ,
the oiler of lledford & Sour has been ac
cepted. This means employment to
so many more skilled and unskilled la
borers , and an increase in the wealth
and industrial activity of Omaha of
which the city may bo proud.

The information contained in the
above article is supplemented herewith
by another of scarcely le.ss importance.
It is now assured that the foundry and

River bridge works , of 'Loavonworth ,
which will give almost constant employment -

these institutions can and will work
beautifully together , and bo of exceeding

There has been so much said about the
location of the Molinc Plow warehouse
that * it will bo a source of pleasure to

OMAHA , April 27. To the Editor : Will
you kindly publish in to-day's paper the
letter of C. O. Martin , chief engineer and
superintendent of the Mew York and
Brooklyn bridge ? His statement is plain
and to the point and can scarcely be mis
understood , and as he is in a position to
know what ho writes about should bo ac
cepted as authority. Now , if it is desira
ble to destroy the Klcvonth street viaduct
as a roadway for private conveyances ,
then it is proper for the city council to
grant the cable company the privileges
they ask , otherwise the cable company
should bo required to provUo a proper
and independent roadway of their own.

BROOKLYN , N. Y. , April 21 , 1830. II.
Kountzo , Omaha , Neb. Dear Sir : Last
craning 1 received your telegram of the
12d ! ! inst. , as follows : ' 'Would you deem
it safe , aduisable or prudent to establish
a line of cable cars on a viaduct or bridge
with a roadway only ten fuel wide , same
roadway to bo used in common by cable
cars and by private carriages and wag
ons , ono class of travel following I fie
other and on the .same track , viaduct be
ing on an incline of four feet.
in u hundred ? " In reply I bog
say most emphatically Unit
1 would not consider it oitlior safe ,
advisable or prudent , to use a viaduct ,
each roadway of which is only ton feet
wide for both cable cars and carriages ,
but ou the contrary would consider it un
safe and dangerous in the extreme. It
is true that on the New York and Brook
lyn bridge both cable cars and vehicles
cross and rccross , but , as yon see from
the enclosed cross section of the bridge ,
that they occupy different divisions and
that a truss separates them. No incon
venience nor danger results from this ar
rangement , but on your proposed
viaduct the roadway is so narrow
that n car and vehicle could
not puss each other , and it would bo next
to an impossibility to rogultuthe speed
of the card to adapt it to the v airing
speed of carriage travel. Again on a
grade of four feet to n hundred , she uld
any accident occur by which the car be
came dotiichcd from the cable , and the
brakes failed to work properly , the cars
would dash down the grade , carrying de
struction as they went. Again the cables
of cable railways are sometimes
stranded , that is one or morn strands of
wire composing the cable become
broken , and become so entangled in the
grip of the car that the conductor is un
able to detach the car from the
cable. Should this occur the car would
bo dragged along irrisistibly at the rate
of which the cabin was moving nnd
would sweep from the viaduct whatever
happened to bo in front of it. In my
judgment , should a cable railway be
placed upon a viaduct no wider than the
ono proposed by you , it would bo effectu
ally ruined for street travel.
Very truly yours ,
C , ( j. MARTIN ;
Chief Engineer and Superintendent New
York and Urooklyu '
As I understand itilhq viaduct is twen
ty feet wide , ten fectwf the width to bo
used by cars and vehicles going in ono
direction and the other ten feet by those
going In the opposite direction.

commenced an action before Judge J\lc-

building at No. 212 north Sixteenth street ,
now being occupied by Siuitli , Kennedy

alleges that in November , 1883 , the de
fendants leased the store room for one
ye-ir at $05 per month , that they have re
fused to pay their rent , there
now being $200 duo. It is
asked therefore that judgment bo ren
