I Ocn. Croolc'H Arrival.
I i nictlv and unobtrusively as is his na-
I turn Ocn. Crook arrived in Omaha early
I yesterday on the Missouri Pacillo
I train , lie stele very softly up tlio stairs
I to the third story of the military head-
I quarters , and quickly passing through
Itho corridors and past the row of open-
I mouthed anil wide-eyed orderlies , was
I BOOH seated at his old dusk working away
I nt the pile of letters which had accuniu-
I latcd awaiting Ills arrival. The orderlies
I hold an earnest discussion concerning - ,
I the intruder not ono of them scorning to
I roill/.o tiiat lie was Gon. Crook , thu now
I department commander. A ltii : ; man
I was the to greet tlio gnneral. Ho ro-
I ceived tlio newspaper man cordially and
I expressed much satisfaction at finding
I himself once more among his old Omaha
I i rionds.
I General Crook shows tlio effects of his
I rcciMit campaigning among tlio Attaches.
I Ills skin is burned to a deeper tint than
I its usual deep brown , hisligs arc chapped
I nnd the lines in his facomoru deeply cut.
I At the same time ho appears to be in
I the enjoyment of perfect health. Ho has
I clmngcu somowluit since ho left Omaha
four years airo. His face is a trillu thin-
I iicr , Ills beard a little longer , but tlierc is
Hie same quiet smile , tiiat same merry
twinkle of the eye ? , which arc and
I always liavo been distinctively Gen.
" 1 have had rather n , hard trip coming
up from Ari/ona , " said the general ?
"owing to washouts on tlio Topeka road
and had expected to reach Omaha earlier
I nnil now tiiat 1 am hero I am very glad
that the trip is over. It scorns very
natural to mo to ( hid myself again in my
I old ollico nnd among old friends and I
I anticipalo a pleasant stay among thorn. "
I "Have you any special plans in view at
I present as commander of the depart-
I mont ? " queried tlio reporter.
I "No , 1 can't say tlmt I have. I have
I hardly been hero long enough to post
I myself , you know. A. little later on 1
I miry bo in better shape to toll you some-
I thing. About the removal of lort Oma-
I lia ? Oh , I cannot express an opinion as
I yet on that matter. I have noticed
I something of the discussion , but hardly
I enough to know of the pro or cons of the
I case. I will say this that I have always
I been in favor of having the post on a
I railroad. So far as the more matter of
I room is concerned , I believe that thu fort
1-gr.Oimds are plenty largo enough for drill
purposes both infantry and artillery "
I "Do you know anything of Gen. Miles
I plans with regard to his campaign
I against the Apaches. "
I "Very little. I have had but limited
I opportunities to converse with him on the
I subject of his plans. Ho arrived on Sun-
I day , while I left the following day. I'rom
I what I have heard him say , however , I
I should infer that ho intends to actively
I push the campaign against the Apaches.
I There nro still nineteen of the buckswith
I Ucronimo at tlio head , who remain to bo
I captured. The only thing that can bo
I done is to run them down and make
I them surrender. I have already sent 77
I of the Apaches to PI o rid a upon
I surrender , and the only thing that is to
I bo done now is to run clown the romain-
I ing few. Ofwhat dilliculties that will
I involve only an. experienced Indian
lighter can know. Chasing
I these redskins with the Jim-
I itcd facilities at'our disposal
I is something like trying to run down a
I Hock of crows with mounted cavalry.
I They have to bo cimscct through inoun-
I tains , valleys , forests and plains , with
I often nothing but an old and indistinct
I trail to indicate the direction in which
I they -have gene. Occasionally the sol-
I diors may bo at tiio very heels of the sav-
I ages , almost ready to swoop down upon
I them , when night fall comes. The next
I morning the Indians will bo forty or lifty
I miles away , cither in tlio front or the
I rear. Their perfect knowledge of tlio
I country gives thorn an advantage over
I trained , soldiery which it is ditlieult for
I the ordinary mind to understand. "
I "Then you do not believe that more
I troops are required to hasten the suppres-
I sion of the uprising ? "
I "No , sir , 1 do not. The present force
I is'nmply largo enough. The combined
I force of the Mexican and American
I armies has been brought to cope with
I these fellows without crushing them , nnd
I if the body of troops were ten times as
I largo the result would bo the samo. The
I only cmiffao lo pursue is that of hunting
I Uown the Apaches and compelling them
' to surrender. That means hard work.
Indian lighting is not child's play. "
"In n general way , " continued Gen
Crook , in t nswor to another question , "I
uollovo that the only way tlio Indian
question can bo solved is to enter into a
I treaty with them , put thorn on a rosorva-
tion. with rights in severally , anil compel
thorn lo remain ( hero. That , in u few
words , is my idea of what the ultimata
solution of tlio problem must be. As
regards this score of Apaches who are
still on the warpath , I do not think that
they should bo allowed to enter into any
treaty the governinont cannot afford to
meet them on half-way ground. They
must ho conquered. To place thorn back
on the White Mountain reservation
would bo folly. At any time they might
break out mid start upon tlio warpath
again. The. settlers in that country
would reali/.o this and would bo in a
chronic state of terror. "
Gen Crook very properly declined to
discuss at length tlio results of his four
years work in Arizona , where he accom-
pllshed so mueh with such tremendous
oids | against him , Ho said , howovorthat ,
ho had lott things in such a shape that
Gen. Miles could take up the campaign
and push it to advantage.
All preparations have boon made for
the reception to bo given Gen. Crook tonight -
night at tlio Omaha Club. From present
indications it will be a brilliant ullair
vvlncing unmistakably the position of
honor and esteem which Hie now do-
parlmont commander hods ) in the hearts
' of lite people of Omaha ,

A Sarpy County Prisoner Jumps Off a
Moving Train.
Sheriff Campbell , of Sarpy county ,
walked into the county jail yesterday'
ircscntlng a rather dilapidated appear-
nice. His hat was gene and his coat
jatlly lorn. Ho had charge of a prisoner
mined Adam Fox , who who had made a
lesporato hut unsuccessful effort to es-
capo. Fox , The ? . Hruco and Thomas
Akron , who have been working on the
ailroad near Papillion , wore arrested at
that place yesterday for ilriinkenncss and
lisordcrly conduct. They wore sent to
thu county jail hero to servo a ton day's
sentence. Shefilf Campbell started with
ho three prisoners , an the incoming

When about two miles from this city.Fox
who was silting in n seat by nimself made
i rush for the open car door and had
leaped from the platform. Sheriff
Campbell at once placed the two re-
naining prisoners in the hands of a citi
zen and followed after Fox. As ho
lumped from the train tlm sheriff lost his
lat and was considerably bruised and
shaken up. He gave chase to Fox and
soon came in sight of him. The fugitive
refused to surrender until the slioritf
ired upon him. He was boon marched
nto thu city and placed in the county

Details or t\vo Great Schemes Hall
The information that Omaha is soon to
tavo a now union depot and freight
louse , was first given to thu public on
Monday through the columns of thu BEB.
further details of the grand suhumc have
jcen consummated , ami are briefly oul-
incd below.
The Union Pacific is first and foremost
u thu scheme , and chiully deserves credit
for setting it on foot. When President
Adams was hero last week , the mattur
was given his final approval. He there
fore authorized General Manager Calla-
way to proceed with the preliminary
work without delay. Two plans for the
depot arc being considered , cither ono
of which will require an outlay of. from
fMO.OOO to $400,01)0. )
One set of plans arc for a structure to
bo erected on South Tenth street , about
where the present building is. The draw
ings show a structure 800 feet long , 75
feet wide and tlireo stories in height ,
with a tower reaching a goodly distance
skywards. It is probable that pressed
In'iek , dressed granite and California red
wood will be used. Apartments for ticket
plllces , telegraph offices , division super
intendent's ollices , waiting rooms , dining
jiall and baggage rooms arc provided for
in plans.
Mr. Callaway says that in view of the
fact that the viaduct is to bo constructed
on Eleventh street the depot on ght to
extend across Tenth street , andj that the
city could well afford to close that thoroughfare
roughfare at tlic railroad crossing for
this'puruose. In this event , the old pas
senger and freight depots now m
use would bo torn down. With the new
edifice stretching across Tenth street it
would bo near the north slope of the hill ,
thus allowing plenty of room on the south
side for tracks , sheds and handling of all
trains coming in and going out. Another
plan under consideration is to secure a plat
af ground at the corner of Eleventh and
Lcavcnworth strccta , provided the pro-
purty owners in that locality do not
charge too outrageously high.
The second set of plans for the depot
contemplate a square building with tracks
and sheds on two sides of it and a .court
yard In the center. This structure would
not bo so commodious as the other nor
nearly so ornate.
The roads to bo associated in the
scheme are those now centering in the
Bluffs , tlio Chicago , Burlington &
Quincy , Kansas City , St. Joe & Council
Bluffs , Northwestern , Chicago. Milwau
kee & St. Paul , the B. & M. , and C. St. P.
M. & Omaha. These roads will all run
their trains into the building as soon as
the now bridge is completed.
Furthermore , as mentioned in the BIE :
Monday , the Union Pacific will commence
work this summer upon a magnificent
now freight depot , upon the plans and
specifications for which a corps of archi
tects are already at work. The details of
the structure have not yet boon decided
upon. The location will probably bo at
some point between the present freight
house and the approach to the bridge.
Hon. John B. Hawley , with office at
Fremont , Neb , , has been appointed general -
oral attorney of the Sioux City & Pacific.
Ho will enter upon his duties May 1,1880.
General Manager S. T. Smith , of the
Union Pacific , wont west in his special car
this morning , on route to Denver.
On and after May 1 the Union Pacific
ami B. & M. will sell tourists' tickets to
Denver and return for ii0. ] The same
regulations regarding time , etc. , will bo
in force as last year.
Mr. W. II. Burns has been appointed
general agent of the tralllc department of
tlio Union Pacific , with headquarters at
Council Bluns. Ho will have general
charge of the freight , passenger anil
ticket business of this company at that
point , reporting to the proper heads of
these departments at Omaha. His an-
poii\tmout take effects May 1,1830. ,

ing cases in police court yotlorday.
Jas. Connors , J. II. Nicholson , drunk

sent up to the county jail in default of a
fine of $5 and costs. Jon Welbaum , fined
$ a and costs , paid , anil released.
John Kelly , who stele the gold watch
from Mrs. Hehm yesterday , plead guilty
this morning and was hold for sentence.
Ho is under ago and will probably bo
sent to the reform school.
Logan Brown , a colored manwas fined
$25 and costs for assault upon a fellow
darkey named James Bell. According
to his story ho came to this city with Boll
to look for work. It was some time before -
fore either of them "caught on , " and
before that time arrived uoth of them
ran out of funds. Brown claimed to
have pawned tils jewelry and clothing to
help himself and his companion , with the
understanding that Boll was to pay halt
the cost of redeeming the articles when
he secured work. When ho ( Bell ) got a
position at tlio Paxton , it is alleged , ho
declined to help redeem Brown's valua
bles. Over this the quarrel aroso. Bull
came out of it badly battered up. IJrown
was sent up to the jail in default of his
Frank Cloud , n suspicious character ,
was sent up to the county jail for thirty
days , besides being fined $33 and costs.

Note Book.
"I can always loll the guest from the
counlry , " said n colored porter lo a HER
representative , "by the way ho forgets
to turn off the water in the wash room ,
and by sitting around with his hat off. "
[ n response to query concerning the
treatment of country guests , the porter
replied ; "The fact is they nln't treated
ns well ns they should bo. Of course
the grangers' dollar is as good as
anybody else's , and the hotel men don't
neglect them intentionally. You see , the
\yerago traveling man is continually
Kicking about his hotel accommodations ,
and at the average holcl lie don't got any
iccommodations unless ho does kick.
J he granger is mild and unobtrusive ,
don't kick , nnd is consequently over
looked in the rush. It's fun , too , to
see the ordinary ruslic wrestle with
a bill of faro. lie seldom orders
what ho wants and seldom gets what ho
orders. The waiters know him. There's
ono old fellow who eats his dinner hereon
on every circus day and at tax paying
time , who never forgets , when asked
"lea or coffee ? " by the waiter , to say :
"Have you got tea made ? " The remark
used to break us all up , but we've got
used to It , now , and get our fun out of
watching the question's clfuct upon
strangers seated at the same table. "
"You newspaper men are pretty roughen
on us farmers , " remarked an elderly
granger , as ho crossed his lengthy limbs
In a Farnam street grocery ycsterday.aiul
fired a half-pint of tobacco juice into a
basket of bran-covered eggs. "You are
always printing something about our
being caught by some slick agent who
secures our nninu to some contract
or other which turns up at
the bank afterwards in the
shape of a promissory note bearing our
signature. The fact is , we can blame the
women folks for most of this kind of
trouble. Some oily-tongued cuss comes
along in our absence and soft-soaps the
women folks into buying anything on
earth. Just the other day a fellow took
dinner at mv house while 1 was away
and , like Will Carlotou's lightning-rod my wife and daughter so deouly
ntercsted in a sympathetic story of his
misfortunes , that the old woman signed a
contract for the purchat > e of anew patent
washing machine that will run of its own
accord and turn the linen out , starched ,
folded and ironed , ready for use. 1 am
looking around alittlc to-day to bee which
of the banks has bought up that villian's
promissory note against niu. "
"There is an art about suicide , " re
marked Coroner Drexel thu other day to
n group of listeners. "It is not every
body that understands how to take his
own life successfully.
"Take the case of a man who deter
mines to end his existence by cutting his
throat , " ho continued , not noting the in
credulous stare of his audience. "In
about eight cases out of ten the would-be
suicide is unsuccessful. Why ? Because
in drawing the ra/.or across his throat , he
throws his head too far back and the
edge only severs the windpipe. A cut of
this kind is rarely fatal , because the jugu
lar vein is not severed. If the victim , in
stead of throwing his head back , would
only hold it upright , or throw it a trille
forward , the jugular vein would surely
bo cut and death would be instanta
neous. The case of that man Kasncr
who tried to commit suicide on Sunday
because his divorced wife had secured all
his property. Is ono in point. He failed
to sever tlio .jugular vein and ho has
every chance ot recovery. "
The local public , or a goodly portion
thereof , cannot fail to remember the
case of the man Halverson who was mur
dered on the bottoms , nnd whoso body ,
as supposed , was thrown into the river.
The murder was undoubtedly committed
by some of the hardened wretches who
make their habitat on the bottoms ,
but , though suspicion pointed s'trongly
at certain parties as the murderers , no
proof strong enough to convict them was
ever secured. "Bill" Davis , the des
perado who was shot by Carlin on the
bottoms Sundav and died Monday night ,
was suspected of having been implicated
in the affair. Ho was a notoriously des
perate character , and a leader among the
ruffians who live on the bottoms and
make a living by preying upon the un
wary. If holiau boon nslxod concerning
the matter , knowing that ho was about
to die , he might have made a confession
of the affair , or at least said something
that would throw light upon the mystery.
But ho is dead ; his lips are sealed for
ever , and it is probable that the Ilalver-
son murder will always remain a matter
of mystery.
For the past day or so the American
Express company has been holding a
sale of unclaimed parcels at the auction
rooms on the corner of Fourteenth and
Douglas streets. The parcels are sent in
from all stations on the road , where they
have been accumulating for months past ,
and they constitute what is known in the
language of the fraternity as "old boss. "
The significance of this term , it must be
confessed , is not exactly apparent.
Every three or four months , sometimes
more , occasionally less , tlio "old boss" is
auctioned oil' . The buyer is not al
lowed to open or examine the parcels
that ho purchases but Is made to run
risks of buying a bonan/.a or "striking it
Hat. " The representatives of the exiiross
company are supposed to bo equally in
ignorance of what the various parcels
Sometimes the bidder \yill purchase for
a mere song , a parcel which is very valu
able. On the other hand ho may bo
"fooled" , paying dollars for something
which is not worth as many cents. For
instance , to-day Tom Murry paid several
dollars for a package , which , when
opened , was found to contain a lot of
broken glass. Another man paid forty
cents for a small , innocent looking par
cel , which contained ton heavy gold
rings , Another paid a similar amount
for a trombone worth $35 or $10.
And so on. In truth , the
auction of "old boss" is but a
lottery , in which ono has chances of win
ning and chances of losing. It is amus
ing to note the different expressions on
thu faces of those who have purchased ,
Many como away with a look of supreme
disgust. They have been beaten , Oc
casionally a look of joy which lights up a
face gives token that its owner
has pulled out a plum. To prevent the
profanity of disgusted purchasers from
jarring ruuoly upon Auctioneer Frel-
welt's cars , no one is allowed to open a
parcel in tlio room where the sale is go
ing on.
"This great talk and hubbub about the
prevention of cruelty to animals makes
mo tired , " said a citizen , standing in
front of a largo commission house ,
"Tho other day 1 was out on South
Eleventh street and saw some men load
ing about two performing bears , for tlio
amusement of the children , While look
ing at thorn a well-known citizen , whoso
name I might mention , drove by in a
carriage , and noticing that the boars
wore lead by n rope passed through a
ring in their noses , stepped out and r.aid :
'I will give you just one hour to get out
of town or I will have you arrested. If
is cruel to lead buur3 iu that way. ' The
gentleman probably is nfll aware that
cattle and some other nnitfials , that are
not docile , are hnndlott irf that way. I
remember a howl wassmado last winter
because some gypsies enoaittpcd near the
government corral were leaving their
horses unhoused during the cold weather ,
but the tender-hearted person making
the complaint did not stop' to think that
thousands of range catt6. ! Ho better able
to endure the cola thailMho-horses , were
compelled to go without covering and
without feeding , and that ) the gypsies
themselves , men , women nnd children ,
were only protected byfrhihcnnvas tents ,
little better than no covering at nil , It
looks lo mo as if these prcvcntiqn-of-
cruclty-to-animals people 'straining
at gnats and swallowing camels. '
M ook at that chicken coon , " contin
ued the speaker , at the same time pointIng -
Ing to a coon in front of the store , "that
coop is ittst largo enough to hold a dozen
fowls , but , as j'ou can i-cc by counting ,
It contains a dozen and a half. There is
not standing room for them , and they
are compelled to tread upon one another.
Did I say standing room ? That is the
most cruel part of it all ; the coop Is made
so low Ihat none of them can stand erect ,
but are crouched down in a cramped po
sition. They have been in that coot )
twenty-four hours , and there is no telling
how much longer they will be tortured
before they are sold. They are nearly all
( mothered , and ns many as can have
thrust their heads through their slain to
$ ot v breath of air. There are three that
.iavo given tin and have died from ex
haustion and suffocation or have been
trampled to death by the others. Look
at that line cock , whun the coop
was picked up lie stopped through the
slats and his foot was caugltunder _ : it and
crushed mid was left pinioned down.
That coon is no worse than the average ,
for nearly every coop of fowls shipped
into this city contains enough to satisfy
oven a "Torqucmada. "
"Why does no one complain of this ? "
"Simply because these fowls are ship
ped by responsible business men in the
country towns , and are handled hero by
reputable business houses. If some
poor devil is seen leading a bear by the
nose or if some tough , long-haired horse ,
the property of a poor Gypsy , is loft out
in the cold-the tender hearted citi/.en is
in arms at once , but when responsible
business men needlessly tprluro hun
dreds of dozens of fowls , no cno has a
word to say. "

The Horrible Mistake AVlilch May
Coat William Niinomaii Hie lilfc ,
William Nuneman , a hostler in the
employ of Henry Horubergor , made a
horrible mistake yesterday which may
cost him his life. lie swallowed a heavy
dose of ammonia under the impression
that it was soda water.
Nuneman wcntinto Hornbcrgcr's saloon
on the corner of Fourteenth and Douglas
streets , and as was his oubtom , poured out
for himself a tmall glass of whisky. Ho
then reached down under the counter ,
and taking out wnat ho supposed to be a
bottle containing soda water , poured a
quantity of the fluid into the whisky. Ho
then swallowed the compound at ono
draught. Ho discovered his mistake too
late. He was immediately ; seized with
the most agonizing pains in the throat
and stomach. Dr. Neville was summoned
and plie4. , the unfortunate man with
emetics which partially relieved his
sull'erings. Up was taken to the St.
Joseph's hospital where ho now Jies ,
suffering intense pain. The chances are
about even for his rccovcrj' . His throat
and stomach are shockingly burnca.
The bottle which Nuneman supposed
contained soda , was filled with ammonia
which was used for scouring purposes.
This bottle in some unaccountable \vay
bad been placed with those containing
liquor and soda. The bar tender sajs it
is a mystery to him how it came to bo
placed there.

and with success , there are many other
? oed reasons why the eight hour system
should bo made universal. The follow
ing are a few of the many :
1 , No ono will deny the fact that eight
liours hard work , whether it bo mental or
manual work is an honest days labor.
2. It gives the clerks an opportunity to
crot recreation and enjoyment between
Llio hour of rising and bea time , allowing
them to retire at a seasonable hour.
8. It gives them n chance to transact
maivy odd jobs which are sometimes ot
ijroat importance but which could not bo
done during working hours without in
convenience to employer and employe.
I venture the assertion that in no
branch of trade are there so many clerks
employed who have as lonp hours , as the
retail grocery clerks , many of whom
work from 0 a. in. lo 8 p. in. and oven
8:30 : on week days nnd to 0 o'clock and
after on Saturdays.
1 request in thu name of nil these clerks
that the ladies ask their grocers to please
close his store at 0 p. in. week days and
8 p. m. Saturdays.
Sincerely trusting the ladies may think
our claim right and just and that they
will one and all enter into this with de
termined spirit , assuring them of our
