TO BE FORWARDED BY VAN WYCK , llio Sonntor to Lend In the Hcroulcim Labor of tlio Seizing tlicOrcnt Komi on tho\ergo of Uniikrii | > tcy. Senator Van Wyck'n Itctnnrko.

Falconer , 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 road. 1,1 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- \f \ ' thin ! ; dona for them which did not exactly - \ 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 secure the confitlcnco of the people , nnd thnt not ho nlono but nlso others whoso duty hnd been to criticize the road hnd been impressed with this fnct. Tlio senator tlion nnswcrcd n number of questions : Tlint the petitions now in circulation wcro the best means of bringing - ing the bill into notoriety ; that it might bo reported as a substitute from the committee now considering his own 1)1111 ) ; that it would bo advlsablu to have n bill similar to the ono under discussion introduced in the house also ; that it would bo advisable to have llio Nebraska dele gation support the document , and finally tliat the only opposition ho anticipated was from the other roads nnil that was always. The bill was then reported to a com mittee wnich conferred with the son.itor and finally reported the same changes sent nt > to read as follows : TIIK nn.u I3c Itenactcil by the snnato mvl house ot representatives of the United States of Amer ica , In cotiL'tois nssuinliluil : Section 1.

When the announce ment , however , tntit Lauer himself would not be brought into court , many people lelt the room. The defendant was represented by Jndgo Tlmrston anil Judge Savage , the state by Gen. Cowin and District Attor ney Estollo. Mr. Tlmrston made the opening speech. 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 took the matter under advisement nnd promised to rentier n decision on Satur day. _ _ _ _ _ _ Brevities.

STRIKE- A Woulil-Ito Diamond Tlilof CiuiRlit The Ijnuor Case An Unloaded llevolvor City Matters or General Interest. The Brnkcinon'fl Strllcc , 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 1'lalto nnd Hawlins , Wyo. West of the 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 ger train at Eagle Hock. 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 ( hey nro dissatislied , but in support of the strikers on the Wyoming division. " Girls Strike. Eighteen of the sixty seamstresses em ployed by tlio Cunliohl Manufacturing company struck yesterday on account of a disagreement between themselves nnd Mr. Canlield. The girls have been working by the piece , and going to work in the morning , sometimes as lute as 8 o'clock. The day before yesterday Air. Canlield said he would not stand it , and they must get to work at 7 o'clock. Half the girls said they wouldn't ' do it. They took executions also to the fiwt that they couldn't liavo a full hour for dinner , because - cause while the proprietor did not insist npo i half an hour's work during noon , he sot the machinery going , and these who wanted to bolt their food could com mence to work at 12iW : , and continue un til G o'clock , thusJpuUing in ten and one- half hours. At the Christian Church. 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 from Rom. I 10 : "bor 1 am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ , for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that belicvefh. " 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. Where Gninhriuus Tjotlfrc/il. 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. An Unloaded Itovolvor. 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 - torday by having Mr. Gees and some of his workmen arrested for trespass , The trial of both cases is set for to-day , Plead Not Guilty. The man Barbbcr , accused of forging pension papers , was arraigned in the United Stales' court yesterday , Ho plead not guilty. ODDS ANDtbRDS. , 4 Stray Leaves Front tlo Importer's Note IJooIr. 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. SAVI2D nv TJ1IO BIDS. Tlio New OitrbliiK lo Cost $3OOO Loss than Before the Injunction. There was a spaelal meeting of tlio board of public works yesterday. The bids upon stone for curbing were oponod. 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 stone Kiley's bid was ! l ( ) cents ; Jas. Fox , § 1.05 : C. 1) . Woodworth , 85 } and 80 cents ; and Murphy , Crolgliton & Co. , 81 and 85 cents per yard. In Districts tf5 , 49 , 4118 to 05 inclusive , Woodwortli's price w.is 85J cents : in districts fiU to Co inclusive 80 cents per yard. In districts U513 Is exclusive , Murphy , Creighttm & Co.'sbid was 84 cents ; in districts 05 , 5U and 56 the bid was 85 cents per linear yard. These figures are considered remarkable for two reasons. They are lower than are these of thoj Union Pacific agent of the sandstone , himself , and about ! ? !

"Wanted to Steal Dinmoiidt ) . Jack Bird was ono of the prisoners brought before Judge Stenberg yes terday. Ho was arrested for stealing a ham from a down town.grocory store. The judge gave him ten days in tlio county jail. Bird confessed to a Ninfh street sport ing woman yesterday afternoon that ho was just out from a iivmyenrs sentence in Joliot. and had just 'consummated a scheme to break into Annie Wilson's mansion thaf night , and steal all the diamonds mends ho could find. The woman whoso name in May Brown , at once informed the police , who speedily captured Brown. He was caught making away with a stolen ham and locked up on that charge Peter Nolan , Hugh Bums and Thomas Thompson who were caught drinking liquoi from partially empty beer kegs yesterday afternoon , wore lined s5 and cost each. None of them could pay , and they wore taken to jail. Ella Jones paid a line of * 5 and cost for assault upon Minnie Francis. Several vagrants who were supposed to bo implicated in a highway robbery on St. Marys avenue Sunday night , were given bread and water sentences.

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- orated and tlio occasion was one which has not since been equalled.
