Now York Star : Pat Hifrgins. of Denver -
vor , Col. , who is estimated to bo worth
at least $100,000 , formerly kept a boot-
blacking stand at the corner of Uroad-
way and Ann street , In spite of his
wealth 1m dresses as ho did then , except
on Btute occasions , anil is still engaged
in blacking boots , though ho elooa less of
the manual work than bo did when
barely making a living in Now York
city. He now employs many assistants ,
anil is wiiel to have stands in fcovoral
I' Colorado towns , anil in Tombstone , An-
1 zona. Ho was well known to N9W
Yorlu-rs eloing business near the City
Hall pink duuiig the hitter years of the
war and for several years afterward ,
Hu was in the bootblacking business pre
vious to the breaking out of the war , but
eave up his brush to fiervo t wo years in
the navy ,
V He then returned to his old stand on
* " 'Broadway , nnd lived in atonement house
in the 1'uurtli ward. Ho was able to aeid
, MO bis earnings by selling papers , but
oven when making $5 a day at his black
ing stand ho continued to llvei in the
cheap rooms ho luul occupied when $1 u
MJuy was good pay. Ho wu ; > an evcry-day
sort of Irishman , unpretentious , haul-
, ! working aud saber. Ilo could Iiavo
dressed well , but he did not care to. and
wore only a common llnnnel shirt nnd
trousers in summer time , with the addi
tion of a pea-jacKet in winter.
Pat had ideas and aspirations that were
far above his station in life. Ho was verj
proud of his two daughters , whoso mother
was dead. They wcro always neatly
dressed , and wont regularly to church
and to school. When they grow up he
closed his Broadway stand , and , saying
good-by lo the few friends at the crullet
and cofTee-stands near by , ho left New
York and took his children to their aunt
in Chicago. JIo went on to the Black
Hills. Pat did not open a saloon or lo
cale a claim or gamble. Ho opened n
modest little shanty with a chair in it.
and hung out the legend ; "Boots blacked
inside. " Whenever a miner came to
town ho always went first to the barber's ,
then to J'al's place to get a shine , nnd
then ho was ready to paint the town.
The miners paid lliggins in gold dust ,
and 35 cents was the price of a shine ,
The dust was not weighed , and Pat go !
more than a quarter's wortli oftener than
ho got less. He saved every cent possi
ble , lie had no expensive habits , nevet
dressed up , seldom drank , never gambled -
bled , and was making from $10 to ? 20 .1
day. Thnn he sent to New York for the
illustrated papers. There wasn't a news
stand in tlio Black Hills at that time
Kvcry man and woman subscriber
through Iliggins for one or more of the
illustrated papers. Ilu bought them foi
10 cents and lest by subscribing foi the
year , anil sold llie-in for 25 cents , ami
ovmi as high as r > 0 cents and $1. Compc
tltSon soon began. Higgins stayed till
protits began to fall oil'very perceptibly
then moved on to the next frontier tovvr
that had no bootblack and no news
When Pat got as far as Loadville he
found ho was worth several thousand del
lars. He selected the First Nationa
bank of Denver as his bank of deposit
and he has ever since done business will
them. Probably to-day ho has $50,000 or
deposit there. Not long after ho wen
west , Higgins began sending occasiona
orders for $100 worth of blacking am
brushes to New York linns. The scrawl
ing handwriting and doubtful standing o
the unknown customer caused feelings oi
misgiving with some firms at lirst. bu
the promptness with which the little
Irishman's drafts were honored by the
First National of Denver , sot at rest am
doubts , and Higgins hud becomn a vcrj
valuable and much apprcciali'el customci
at a well known brush house in Bookmar
street.andalso at a blacking manufactory
which is advertised on every rock am
Not long ago a traveling man for the
brush house hunted up Higgins. He
founrt him in Tombstone , Ariz. Higgins
was the same man , with the same pru
dent ways and modest desires , hul will
the same lofty Ideas and fond pride of hi :
daughters. He had just been to Chicago
lo see them. They wcro being educated
at the best schools there. Having seer
them , ho had returned contented , anel
with as firm purposes as ever , to his
cabin and his brush.
The traveling man induced Higgins to
have his pictuio taken in his everyday
clothes , with his pot dog at his side ,
Higgins loved that dog verv dearly. Thej
traveled together. When Higgins went
from the Black Hills to Leadvillo he
walked , only occasionally getting a ride
on an emigrant wagon. Higgins was
wrakcd up ouo night uy the barking oi
his dog. The barking grew fainter , and
linally ceased. In half an hour the elo"
returned , wagging his tail. He had lea
a band of Indians on a false scent.
"Woman's Alisnlon.
Woman's Journal : The end of woman
is to marry and raise up a family. She
starts out in this direction when she car
ries a doll in childhood. Your girl whc
leaves home nnd goes out for herself does
so because she has failed to find the man
she wants to marry. By and by she does
lind him , and when she does she drops
everything and goes with him. She
stops short in her music , her acting , her
art , her literature or whatever it is , be
cause , after all , her instinct tells her to
marry , and she follows her instinct in
stead"of reason.
A man can marry and go ahead in the
particular pursuit or profession he has
chosen , but the woman fitops and sub-
jectti everything to the one duty of wife-
hood. That is the reason women do not
succeed asyoll as men. They fall short ,
Grant all this for the sake ot argument ,
Admit that it is the general mission ol
woman to marry ami raise up a family ,
IJut 1 am now writing about the excep
tions. There arc exceptions to all classes ,
all rules , all theories and all philosophies ,
Most women elo many young , and that is
right. That is as far as most of them
want to go. They are fitted for this sort
of life , and have no desire or fitness for
But are you going to make one kind oi
a girl do this when it is a straight-jacket
and an abomination to her ? in other
words is she to anarry simply jor the
sake of marrying , and "settle down"
simply for the sake of settling down ?
Why not allow her to follow her natural
bent as well as the young man ? True ,
she may , as my objector says , fiiul some
man , while herself following a .siiucebs-
ful career , whom she will love and whom
she will marry , thus cutting short a
work that might othovviso have been
rounded out ami made complete , True ,
women are not as completely successful
as men in the more independent pursuits
of life. But the point I wish to make
clear nnd emphatic is that society , nnd
the woman herself , aud the man she
marries , and all direct or remotely concerned -
corned , are the bettor for her having elono
something for herself , however liltlo.
I repeat that the .self-reliant woman is
a civilizer. The busy world is improved
by her having been n participator there
in. Her words are gentle and kind , and
her prese-nco is a restraint lo the headlong
impetuosity of men , Even though she
may not remain long with us single , let
us bo thankful that she has como at all.
If she falls in love and marries , oven at
the sacrifice of an independent career ,
her life after all is not in vain. Her own
views have been broadened , her sympa
thies have boon deepened , her capacity
for enjoyment made greater and her
scope tor usefulness widened. I say
again and again , let the ambitious girl
see what she can do jor hoi-golf.

A. J. Ponplpton was called for and said
that the Union Pacific , by virtue of its
own interests , worked for the benefit ol
Omaha , and every citizen was beuelittcd
by it. The .Northwestern and the C. 15 ,
& Q. were interested in carrying freight
and passengers by Omaha , thereby get
ting the long haul. The Union P'acilic
had to light handicjippod by federal limits
and restrictions , which the other roads
did not have. It could not lend its credit ,
oven in matters absolutely essential. It
was , therefore , but simply a question of
time when bankruptcy would come , and
the road would fall into government
hands and bo run as a political machine.
The companj * could do iiothtu"
jn any direction , situated as it
in. With the proposed law , ? 10,000-
000 , as President Admi-8 said , could ho
raised in one week by capltali/ing
now roads at their actual cost. Them
had not been a mile of road built under
the Union Pacilio auspices since 1870
where there was one drop or one dollar
of watered stook. Originally , the main
line was capitalized at $100,000 or ? 170-
OCO per mile , and the branch lines had
leveled that down to less than ? ! 50,003
per mile. Mr. Adams and Mr. .Ames
were to bo credited with reducing the in
terest charged by over $ ODOfO a marvel
of financial management. But the road
needed now the power granted by this
bill , and ought to get it. The Van
Wyck bill wa i impracticable and im
possible to wortv.unUcr. The constitution
of the board -directors , itself , provided
for by it would llo sijliiciont | to ruin the
road. No such board could over bo got
together for the \irriper \ management of
the road. Ho preferred to let the gov
ernment lend thii money with the stoek
and bonds in the present hands , The
proposition ta , anything from
money paid to the government was ab
surd. Ho was ifUrppgly in favor of the
bill reported by the committee and urged
its adoption byUho'b'oard.
A vote was then itUken , and the bill
was unanimously approved.
Mr. Colpetzerw , % then appointed a
committee 01 op $ to ascertain when tiie
Nebraska congressional delegation should
arrive here andjm jflo arrangements for a
conference between them and the Board
of Trade upon the bill in question.
Messrs. Wakoficld , Colpetzcr , Smith
and J. A. McShano wore appointed
a commuted to have both the
bill and the resolutions above
mentioned printed and circulated for
signatures throughout the city and state
and the territory of Wyoming , nnd after
wards returned to the secretary of the
Board of Trade of Omaha.
It was also resolved as the sense of the
Omaha Board of trade that the railroads
connecting this city with the east should
place upon their lines at least one train u
iluy , for Chicago , which should run at
the rate of at least thirty-live miles per
Adjourned ,
That Nebraska is a tree-growing land

MA von IIOYD'S w ii.ce > MK.
Nearly loin ycais agoas mayor of this
city , it was my privilege to preside at a ban-
euiet tendered by thei cltUuns to General
George Cioqk on thetva ol his depaitute for
Ailzonn. Regretfully wo saw him leave us ,
as he , with atiuosolulei'salaciitv , rospondcii
to tlio stern call e > f duty. On that occasion
all Omaha united as one poison In bidding
him God-speed. To-night 1 leel that 1 am
highly honored iu having the pleasure on be
half of ourpcoplo in welcoming him hade as
4 > nmmundor-ln-chief of the derailment ot the
Platte. [ Applause. ] And In bidding him
welcome yes , a thousand times welcome 1
but faintly oxniess tlio sentiments ot all , citi
zens and soldiers alike. I know I voice the
icellmr of oveiyone In Omaha , and , may well
add , all Nebraska , when I say the keen 10-
giet at General Ciook's depirttire In ItSSJis
only equaled by the heartfelt joy at hlsio-
tinn in USb8. [ Applause , ] by the thought
that thn hcioic soldier , ellsungulslied cltl/en
and ge'iilul gentleman , so well known to the
nation and so piomlncnt In Uio Htoiyof its
wars , will bo again among us asol old a
slmier in our prosperity In our onvviiul and
upward pie > gress. [ Applause. ]
When Ueneral Ciook first assttmod com
mand of this department Indian domedntlons
in western Nebraska , Wyoming ana Dakota
were of almost daily occurrence. In Indian
warfare , as In all other contests , the opposing
party must bo worsted bofoic satisfactory
terms e u be agreed upon. Geneial Ciook's
plan iu dealing with Indians is , lirst to whip
them then treat them as human beings , anel
after having made teims to keep falin with
them. It is extiemcly dllllcnlt for an otlieer
to light Indians nnd sustain his lemitatlon ,
but the inline of ( ieorgn Ciemlc will always
"shlno untarnished on the rolls of fame , "
( Applause ] and no matter In what field his
duty may bo cast , his deeds vv ill add new
Justio to the page of liisUuy.
The day spoken of by the Piophet Isaiah ,
"When the swords shall be beaten Into plow
shares and spears into pruning hooks , when
nation shall not lilt svvoiel against nation ,
neither shall they learn war any moie , " is
still afar oil , lor ,
'War must ho
While men aio what they ate , while they

Passions to bo loused up , while ruled by men ,

Insults olleiod ; yea , while lights are wroth

So long' the sword shall shine , so long shall
Continue and the need of war remain. "
This being so let us hope that our aimv may
ever bo ottlcered by such gallant and imtriotlo
soldiers as Goneial Ciook has proved Jiimsolf
to be on many a blocdy battle Held. [ Ap

Our wTlcomo to Oencral Crook and hi ;
brother olllcers to-night Is all the more heart
felt hpcitisQ wo know that ho was as anxious
to return as we have been to sco him In om
midst again. In him we proJt not only the
wanlcr crowned with fresh laurels , but alsc
the staunch and tried of Omaha and her pee
pie. Let mo then oncu again , as mayor ol
tlm city , say welcome to this distinguished
soldier , cltl/cn anel true friend , Genera !
George Ciook. FGicat applausa.j
I nm unable to express the very great
gratitude I feel toward you for this kmdlj
expression of j'our fe'clfng for mo upon
my return , after my departure some year ?
ago. I desire to express thu pleasure 1
experience to bo with you hero to-night
nlso the interest I have always taken in
your city. 1 Iiavo watched its growth since
187/3 / , aud take a pride in it and its people ,
nnd like Pat Mnlloy , although my pock
ets nro empty 1 return to you with my
he.irt full of joy.
General Cowiu saiel that if Mayor fioytl
had received no list from the committee
of arrangements , ho did not know how ho
found e it the speaker's name. It was a
satisfaction lo him to bo present and to
extend a welcome to George Crook.
Many j'cars ago ho was ouo of a distin
guished party on the great mountain
sielcs of West Virginia , anel in that num
ber was General Crook , and the great
man who has now gemo from this earth
for over. Ho was reminded to-night , of the
place , and the iniluoncc made upon Gen
eral Grant by the appearance of the first
white flag winch rose above Vioksbiirg.
Notwithstanding the danger , tlio priva
tion , the sleepless nights , greater than all
these , the soldier found an enemy
in the traitors whoso prejudice and cen
sure teemed in certain parts of the north
ern press. No one who has experienced
it can fail to appieeiate the feelings of
the guest , who , when on the stony moun
tain pass , ignorant as to whether or not
death might not como from behind a
shelter , diel his duty nobly and
well , despite the censures of
an unfriendly press who know
no more about the matter of which they
wrote than if they wore in the Fiji islands.
[ Applauso.J We rccognniso that General
Crook has done his duty and his whole
duty , anel it is to the credit ot our whole
press that not one word of censure has
been breathed against him hero. Wo bid
welcome to-night to one who has stood
the test among those in charge of Indian
affairs , better than any ouo the govoin-
mcnt ever intrusted with the charge of
the Indian.
It seemed to him but a little time since
they had gathered to pay a tribute of ad
miration and respent to a departing com
mander and citizen whom we lova. It
had been well said by the chairman that
the regret we experienced when General
Crook lolt us is equalled only by the joy
we experience at his return. "We con
gratulate the general unon his success ,
alter four years of hardship in a strange
lanel , anel who now returns crowned as it
were < .vith success. lie has come to our
city of Omaha to enjoy peace , the
pleasure of association , its education , its
civil life , its hospitality and the greet
ings of his friends. I wish it were possi
ble1 for mo to-night to fully express the
admiration 1 hold for General Crook as a
soldier and a cit'uen. The fact that I am
speaking in his presence , prevents me
attempting to voice it. Last winter , after
I had recovered from a rather dangerous
illness , I met with Juelgo Balelvvin on the
street one day , and no said 'John , in
getting well again you have deprived
mo of the opportunity of de
livering the best dibit of my life. '
Gonenu , in cominjr homo alive , you have
depriveid me also of the opportunity of
delivering the best effort of my life , and
you elo not know , now that vou arc alive.
what good things would have been said
of you if you had only oome home elead ,
[ Laughter ] . And I hope it may not be
in the lifetime of anybody hero to survive
the elcalh of General Crook. [ Applause ] .
Governor Warren spoke of the esteem
and love the people of his territory had
for General Crook. He had saved them
in ' 75 , ' 70 anel ' 77 , when a man could not
safely go to his barn on the Union Pacific
lest he niiirht bo murdered. They named
then * counties sifter him , and they named
their babies after him. anel ho felt it
woulel not ho long before the growth of
Omaha would hcnuhim out to Cheyenne
to DC with them forever. When the time
came to ship the fort they could put it
on a flat car and Cheyenne would pay
the C. O. D.
Speaking of the pleasure it afforded
him to welcome General Crook , ho know
the same fooling was entertained by all
the Fourth infantry , the regiment which
sent General Crook forth. It had pro
duced great Dgonorals. It was father ,
mother and brother of such men us
Grant , Sheridan and Crook. lie was
glad to see him return , but ho was sorry
ho would bo compelled to leave so soon.
