Samuel Rees , Dr. Conkllng , C. F. Good
man , I1 C. Hruner and others. Each of
these had been addressed n postal card
by tlio Hecretnr.y of the board , notifying
them of tlio meeting , but not one of them
bad received it.
Max Mayor called the meeting to order
nnd said it had been suggested for the
purpose of rendering assistance to the
Union Pacilic road to build branch Hues.
Ho then introduced Senator Van Wyck ,
who had been telegraphed nt Washing
ton , and who had come to discuss tliu sub
ject , with them ,
The senator was received with
cheers. Ho said , u.3 ho under
stood it , it was a business
gathering called for the purpose of hav
ing free and frank interchange of opin
ions on a subject which was interesting
to Omaha. Nebraska and the Union
Pacilic roatl. It had been thought not
only by the Union Pacilie , but also by
many persons who have the good of the
country at largo , that it was not altogether
n benefit that the fund uecumulatingtakon
from the Union Pacific , put in the treas
ury ami drawing mcagro interest , should
be allowed to remain there , but that it
ought to bo used for the bcnelit of the
road and the country in general. The
matter had been considered and it was
not now doubted that if this was done it
would be to the advantage of the govern
ment , and it had bcon suggested that this
monov , therefore , which was tied
up under the Tliurinan act should
bo used for the benelit of the
road and the security of the government.
For this purpose , ho hail introduced a
bill in the senate , of which they all knew ,
for the purpose ol utilizing llieso funds
and it was only natural that it shoulil bo
referred to the Thuriuan committee.
Since that time it had been suggested
Unit instead of using tlio money "of the
sinking fund , the company could use its
credit to build roads. That , ihe senator
thought might bo the easier means , would
tit least invite less opposition anil leave
the money in the treasury. From a liastv
consideration , ho thought it might bo the
best , at least the most easy to pass , as al
so lor the credit of tlio road.
In 1878 , when the country was shocked
with the monstrous injustice and rob
bery of the Credit Mobilior.
congress experienced : i spasm of
honesty , such a spasm as set
the seal of disapprobation upon public
robbery , the law as passed that the Union
Pacilic should not bo pcrmttteil to issue
I now stock or make mortgages or pledges
on the property or future .earnings of the
company without the consent of con
gress. 1 hereafter the earnestness of con
gress relaxed , anil the managomcntfailed
'to notice that there hnd been power above
'them. Jay Gould , for whom there was
no law , paid no attention to tlio restric
tions previously mado. Ho made the
monstrosity ofjtho Credit Mobilier even
rnoro monstrous. Instead ot being gov
erned by the law , bonds were issued , stock
sold , worthless hues wcro bought , and ho
almost succeeded in bankrupting the
DTho question now was , can anything bo
done ? Tlio people are willing to do any
thing in tlioir power to assist. They nro
not opposed to railroads , but they are op
posed to the manner in which railroads
nro run. It was from that stand
point that I drew my bill. The
Union Pacifio and the people
nro now counseling. They are inclined
to take tlio people into their confidence.
The Union Pacilic is on tlio very verge of
bankruptcy. If taken to-day it would
scarcely bo worth its first mortgage. Wo
nro told it is not safe to intrust congress
with the management of the railroads.
/ Hut what reason is there for this fear ?
The Union Pacilic , with all that has been
done for it by Omaha , Douglas county ,
Nebraska , and the government , ought to
bo the grandest property in the country.
Who 1ms boon running it ? It has not
been congress , nor the state. And yet
wo are told the only railroad are Goiild ,
Vanderbilt , and such railroad mon are
the only persons to run the roads. Hail-
roads ouglit to bo modest. The people
will bo with the road , and in favor of
this billif it bo based upon jiisticc.nnd as
such , it ought not to favor any capitaliza
tion beyond the cost of auxiliary lines to
= actual builders. That question is the
great cause of the labor troubles which
are now occurring everywhere. A rail
road cannot bo sustained in this manner
any moro than can the farm worth $10,000
upon which the owner gives n
mortgage of 1)0,000. ) For the first year ,
while ho is spending his $10,000 , he is
successful , but when lie comes to pay his
interest on the watered valuation and his
annual payments , ho fcols befoio long
that it will be n blessing when the time
comes for the mortgagee to tuko the land
from oil'his hands. Take the Union Pa
cific and place its value in the millions ,
and whore has the money gone ? Into
the pockets of Jay Gould , aim , of course ,
the result is very html on us. With ref
erence to the arrangement that can bo
( made in this caso. it ought to represent
- . only the dollars that are the actual value
of the roads secured. No moro roads
ought to bo built which do not recognize
this fact. There seems to bo no objection
to tlio plan proposed because the credit
of the Union Pncilio road is still worth
something. If confidence can bo aroused
in thin scheme , the interest will bo in the
roads which are to be built , and the per
sons who have the money to spend would
Lo the most intiirtistcd.
No matter ho\ good or how perfect
this bill may bo , it will bo opposed.
There are influences oponlv and secretly
which will work against it. Other rail
roads , too , will antagonize it boeaiiho
railroads are sometimes like cannibals ,
ready at all times lo grind one an
\ other to ( lust. Them is a road on the north
roail on the south , Ther are two cor-
' tllY1. 1'0118 ' m I'1'3 ' ' stllt ° i each of whloli is a
bujuigcrous antagonist , and each is striv-
bur * 'or a putronagu which must Injure
Ajn Pacilic. They have no tender
-j jO Kols"of mercy , and it was therefore
[ p incumbent that something should bo
[ I done to overcome this great rivalry.
f If Omaha and Nebraska wanted some-

\ ly justify his own method of having it
L \HOUO , as the reurcsoniat.lvo of each , he
was willing to help them in tlioir own
Vay , Their proposition was bettor than
uls. and ho would gludlv introduce their
bill. The bill should distinctly state , for
the salto of anything hereafter , that any
lease or purchase should bo upon the act
ual cost of tlio road leased or purchased.
Mot withstanding ( hut , herctifor , ho might
muko some strictures , ho * was yet glad to
stnto that the ninnrtgoment of the Union
Pacilic nt present seemed to ba in the
hniuls of people who were disposed to

An Omaha iMnty Queen's AUrtrcss.
The following is a copy of the address
composed by Julia Del.inoy , aged 14
years , the May queen chosen from the
fifth C class , Hnrtman school- , the teacher
of which is M. L. Alter :
Kind friends as we've decided
To pass a pleasant day ,
And as you've kindly clioson
To nialco mo "Queen of May , "
1 think it i but luting
That I should tell to you
llo\v very much I love yon.
And how 1 thank you , too.
And so , my Httlo comrades ,
When all Is bright and ay ,
With the birds sweetly sinning
The flowers blooming by the way ;
When from tlio leafy tree-tops
Their little volce.s rin * ,
Anil through the dales and valleys
Their colors thickly spring.
When all around is-joyfnl ,
And all is glad to-day ,
Let its bo merry , alao ,
And enjoy our first of JIay.
Let us join our gladsome voices ,
* " Xct us dance and play and sing ,
And nil bo gay and nappy ,
Like' birds , to greet the spring.
And vhen we're old and feeble
When bome are far away ,
And ne'er again we'll meet hereTo
To join in snort or play-
Perhaps the gladdest momenta
That wo shall ever know ,
Will be those hours of Rpring-tlino
In the happy long ago.
And now my little comrades ,
Kind friends , and teacher , too ,
I'll trouble you no longer ,
But bid you all adieu ;
And in the year before us ,
Mv wish is but to say
That wo shall all bo happy.
And have many a uiciry May.
Moving for n Now Trial.
The district court room was crowded
yesterday , on the occasion of the ar
guing of the motion for a new trial in
the Lauor case. When the announce

The defendant was represented by
Jndgo Tlmrston anil Judge Savage , the

Judge Tlmrston addressed the court
for about two lionr.s , basing his argu
ment principally upon two errors in the
court's ' instruction to the jury. Ho styled
the verdict n tribute to prejudiced pub
lic opinion , and took occasion to declare
that many of the Indies who nttcnde'd
the trial , by nods and smiles , curling of
the lips nnd twinkling of the oycs. in-
llucnccil the jury in their conclusions.
In the afternoon General Cowin replied
at length to Judge Tlmrston * s aduross ,
and took occasion to make a scathing re
ply to fiomo of his opponent's insinua
tions. District Attorney Estello closed
tlm argument for the state and Jud < ro
Savage for the dofi-nso. Judge Neville

The situation with regard to tlio Union
Pacific brnkoincn's strike was unchanged
yesterday , except that the men
on the Nebraska division west
of North Plntto went out in
morning. DThis stops the run
ning of nil freight trains between Nortli

Intter point , tlio freight trains nro run
ning as usual. All passenger trains nro
running on schedule time. No special
acts ot violence arc reported , though yes-
torclay the strikers did "lio up" a passen

The conductors of the road arc still
loyal. A telegram was received yesterday
from the chairman of the executive com
mittee ot the order in which ho stated
that the conductors would stand by the
road through any and every uinurgoney.
tiunprnl Tralllo Manager Kimbjtll said
yesterday that in his opinion the
strike would soon become general over
the road , extending oven , to tlio eastern
Nebraska divisions. "Tlio whole trouble
originated , " ho said "with those roughs
on the Wyoming division , who want the
earth. It the brakemen on the othyr
divisions go out , it will not bo because

Eighteen of the sixty seamstresses em

Owing to more favorable weather and
increasing interest , the attendance was
larger Tuesday than on Monday night.
The discourse by Hov. K. U. barrow was

The power of God , said the speaker , for
the accomplishment of His purposes , is
exerted through agencies ot His own
selection. Ilis power to bring the sum
mer storm is only present when certain
thermal conditions exist. His ppwer
for the reproduction of grain
is placed in tlio germ ot
each kcrnal , to bo developed
by conditions of his own selection , and
is nowhere oho found. If yon plant a'
locomotive it will not produce a stalk of
corn , for in no part of this mighty piece
of mechanism has God placed Ids power
for this purpose.
The gospel is tlio power , not a power
of God to save men , lienco noth-
in" can bo substituted for it.
Gal. 1-8. "TJiough we , or an angel from
heaven , preach any other gospel unto
you than that which we have preached
unto you , let him bo accursed. " What is
the gospel ? It is : First Something
that can be preached ; second , believed ,
and third , obeyed. TliospeaKcr read from
1 Cor. 15-3-4 , that tbe gospel is the death'
burial and resurrection of Christ , for
our sins. This is God's power to save.
Education rarely reforms men and never
purilics the heart. The gospel has in it a
power , God's power , to purify the heart
and lift man and women from depravity
to holiness. Can wo preach tlio
death , burial , and resurrection of
Christ ? Yes , it has been preach
ed for more than eighteen
centuries. Can wo believe it ? Yes , mil
lions have died us martyrs rather than
renounce their faith. Can wo obey it ?
Yes ; Rom. 0 , 8 : "Know yo
now that so many of us as
were baptised into Jesus Christ
wore baptized into his deatli ; therefore
wo are buried with him by baptism into
death , that like as Christ was raised up
from the dead by the glory of the father.
even so wo also should walk in newness of
life. " The speaker empliatix.od the expres
sion "buried with Christ by baptism1' ' and
compared the desire of bereft friends to
bo buried with their loved ones , to the
desire of their behoving penitent to bo
buried with Christ by baptism.
These services will bo continued each
evening through the week.

The workingmen in making their ex
cavations for the foundation of tlio now
Krug building on the south side of Fur-
nam street , between Tenth nnd Eleventh ,
have disclosed to view something which
hus been unknown to nil save tlio early
comers to the city. They are the beer
vaults of the old Krug brewery. They
are of brick of small dimensions , and
feebly lighted , nnd now while not look
ing like a collar , can hardly bo appreci
ated as beer vaults. Especially is this the
case when ono considers the space now
required to accommodate the lager now
consumed in Omnlm. Yet , here was
stored some ot the beer made in the first
brewery in Omaha. The latter stood
above them , and in connection with it
was a saloon in which Krug , tlio pioneer ,
still in our midst , disposed of his simple ;
beverage. His brewing of those days is
not wtiat it is at the present time , and
some os tlio good livers of these days
yet remain to toll of the ollccts. jolly and
otherwise , the early beverage had upon
thorn nnd the generation. The vaults
will bo visible , perhaps , for. a few days ,
nnd tlion will disappear , as has so much
they hauo contained , forever.

Mrs. Sarab Bernstein nnd her daughter
llaehaol wore arrested this morning on a
charge of "threatening to shoot. " They
had sonio trouble about a lot on Four
teenth and Jackson streets , which i3 now
occupied by them ( the Uornstcins ) , and
which Peter Gees has Inased in order to
erect a hotelcr , Yostday Goos" work
men tried to roughly put the Bernstein's
moveablos off the lot. llnchaul pointed
nn old , rusty , unloaded revolver at the
laborers , and they ran like a pack of
scared wolves. Mr. ( Joos immediately
caused the arrest of Uachaol and her
mother. Mrs. Benibtoin retaliated yesterday -

It is rather surprising' , to note the
wide variety of conceptions which exist
in the minds of the outsiders regarding
tlio size of Omaha , " roma ed a traveller
the other day. "Conilnp into Omaha last
week , I made inquiries ofcdiflcrcnt people
ple whom I mot as td the size of tlio
place , The answer I received indicated
that your city might havoa population
ranging anywhere from H,000 to 160,000.
Ono travelling man f rofai Boston who had
never been in Omaha before said that ho
understood it was a city of about 10J.COO
inhabitants. Another man from Chicago
who had heard a good deal of the place ,
but who had never been hero , suggested
that it had about ! > 0,0.0 ! peoplo. Another
man stated that it was nearer 150.UOO. A
man from Minneapolis turned up his nose
when I put the question to him , and paid
that Omaha had not boon over 40,000.
The candy bov who cnmo along just then
wont him 10.00D lower , placing the esti
mate nl 80,000. , 'I ought to know1
ho said , 'because I run into Omaha twice
a week. ' I grow tired of asking ques
tions nnd decided that the only thing I
could do was to wait and see for myself.
My candid , unbiassed opinion is that
your city contains at least 73,003 souls. "
The statement was made in the Bnu
that the orderlies in the army headquar
ters were unable to realize that the quiet
unostentiou.s individual whom they found
seated in the chair of the commanding
general the other day was ( Jen. Crook.
This does not apply to Sergeants Dolunoy
and Boso , both of whom are "old timers'1 '
in tlio military service , having fought
under Gon. Crook in his Indian cam
paign of 1870. The general was glad to
meet his old comrades and greeted both
of them with hearty warmth.

There was a spaelal meeting of tlio
board of public works yesterday. The

Colorado sandstones and Mankuto lime
stone were bid upon , the latter by J. E.
Hiloy at 0 ! ) cents per linear foot. This
was tlio lowest by 15 cents , but as only
25,000 feet of it could bo secured , when
nearly 00,000 are required , the ligtiro was
not considered. Upon Colorado sand

Both Ouster and Omaha Posts , G. A.
R. , propose this year to take part in com
memorating Decoration day. Each has
taken the first stop by agreeing upon thes
matter , and last night , Custor Po bt , at it
regular meeting appointed the following
executive committee to act in the promi
ses : D. A. Hurley , A. Alice , Jno. II.
Fleming and P. O. Hawcs. This committee -
mitteo , it is expected , will act in har
mony with a similar committee from
Omaha post to make tlio commemora
tion worthy of tlio great day. A citizen
remarked yesterday that the tendency of
the people was indin'orcntisni in the matter -
tor of these celebrations. That they wore
becoming less worthy of the colouration
and more difllcult to bo arranged , lie
claimed , also , that ono of the G. A. R.
posts took but a passive interest in the
celebration and no thought it would bo
but a short time , unless .something should
bo done , before the occasion would re
ceive but passing attention. Ho would
like , ho said , to .see such a celebration as
they had eight years ago when the whole
town took part , the buildings wore dee-

has not since been equalled.

Tlin Court HOUHO Addition ,
The county commissioners have boon
requested to furnish K. E. Meyers , the
architect of the court house , with plans
of the ground floor , elevator , etc. , of the
building , that ho may prepare plans fpr
the talked of rultfltlonnl story to bo placed
under the building.
The commissioners propose to adver
tise for plans by which this work can bo
best done. A premium of $800 will bo
paid to the architect of tlio most suitable
plans. If the commissioners nro con
vinced that the plan is feasible they will
submit the proposition to a vote of the
people this fall.
The Cnso Acnlnst Kilo.
Some days ago a complaint was filed
with the county commissioners asking
the impeachment of Constable Kilo for
drunkenness and actions unbecoming an
ofilccr in his position. The commission
ers set 2p. m. yesterday as the time for tlio
hearing of tlio caso. At that hour , how
ever , it was discovered that Kilo had
novnr been legally summoned to appear
before the board , and .the case was ac
John I. Blair.
The eighty-four years which have
passed since Mr. John 1. Blair was born
have loft him in the possession ot a halo
and hearty condition not often gained by
mortals. This distinguished gentleman
was among the early projectors of the
Union Pacilic , andgavoof his own moans
$1,000,000 toward building it. Ilo is now
in attendance upon a case before the
United States circuit court.
A little mistake was made in Monday
evening's paper in tlio article headed
"Young Folks Frolic , " The occasion
was in nonor of Miss Li//.io Bushy , who
has just returned from Colifornia.
