It lias accordingly boon decided to keep
all these valuable publications within
the bar , and require partial desiring to
read to make personal application for
them , at tlio same time giving his or her
name and residence and tlio work de

have been procured and in a few day.-i
will bo placed within the reach of read

when returned , and if in any manner
injuredmust be paid for by the oll'uiuling
party. Ifono.is not returned , it , or Its
equivalent , will bo recovered after the
manner used In the case of other urop-
erty of the library.
This system has been in practice in
Chicago since tlio library at that place
wiH opened , and has been found to bean
an excellent check upon those who : ire
disposed to bodishonest.
The board lias also had prepared
printed slips , which interested people
may procure , by which they may suggest
to tlio same the name of any work which
the subscriber may think il would
bo advisable to secure for the
library. There are blanks for
the nnino of the parly making the recom
mendation , his residence and the date ,
together with a place for the name of the
work , author , publisher , place of publi
cation , number ot volumes , and the cost ,
if known , of the work. This blank is
prepared in deference to the wishes of
the best patrons of the library and will
doubtless bo appreciated.
The librarian reports the largcat num

An invoice of books valued at $1.000
was recently added to the library , wliilo
another , costing about $3,000 has been
ordered and will bo hero soon. Many
books of tlio latter are of foreign publica

While the percentage of fiction remains
at about 78 per cent , the librarian notes
that there has recently been a gratifying
increase in the demand for mechanical
works which comes in the main from the
employes in our various manufacturing

John Picrson was brought before the
grand jury yesterday and remained clos
eted with them for a long ; time. Whtn
ho was taken back to jail his features
seemed as composed as wlicu behind the
bars of his cage. There is little doubt
that ho adhered to his denial ot any and
all knowledge of the murder of Watson
B. Smith , the great crime of which ho is
suspected. Nellie Nugent , mistress of
Jack Nugent , formerly of this city and
now of Chicago , was also before the jury ,
but failed to impart any information as
regards tlio perpetrator of the crime.
The grand jury will bo discharged this
morning. They found but ono indict
ment and that is against-tho convict , Mc
Carthy , who is now serving a term in the
Iowa penitentiary. Ho has been indicted

.Joseph Teahon , of the Wabash route ,
returned yesterday from St. Louis ,
whither ho had escorted some of the re
cent accessions to Bufl'alo Bill's Wild
West. The party consisted of fifty-two
Ogalalhi Sioux Indians , from 1'iuo Itidgo ,
Dakota. Of the number , six were
women. Among the whites were Major
Jack Burke , "Broncho Bill" and "Squaw
Man" Jack Nelson. Among the Indians
wore several chiefs of lordly proper
tions. Tlio aborigines were dressed in an
entirely now outfit , which Mr. Tea
hon pronounced the finest and rich
est ho had over seen. At every
largo station along the line
the red men attracted the greatest atten
tion , and at several , a colored man or
two wore innoconty introduced into the
cars , and , when made to confront the In
dians , almost turned pale with fear , and
lied prceipatoly from the oar. The party
reached fat. Louis Tuesday niirht , as did
also another batch of thirty-live Pawnees
from Arkanhas City. Both parties run-
do7.voused at Bullalo Bill's camp. Cote
Brillianto , three miles from the city. The
show will open on Sunday next , and the
first parade take place on Saturday.
There are now about ninety Indians in
the party , the largest number which over
appeared in Cody's enterprise.

Last night , about 10 o'clock , fire was
discovered in a barn on the Kennelly
place , owned by the South Omaha Land
syndicate , and about half a mlle from the
slock exchange. When discovered tlio
flames had gotlon beyond reach of being
extinguished. A number of people from
the surrounding country rushed to the
scene. John Corcoran , the party renting
the place , was in the lead , but ho could
not open the door , as the side was envel
oped in llamcs. As a consequence , the
contents , consisting of two tons of hay ,
two sets of harness and four horses were
burned. In his attempts to save his
property , John Corcoran was very pain

been in the loft , and no accidental

Tlio City Attorney's Dockets ,
A reporter of the BKE yesterday was
shown the first docket used by a city at
torney for Omaha. It was opened in 1857 ,
and remained in use until 1883. During
that time it recorded the court work of
City Attorneys Gilbert , Ambrose , Bartlett -
lott , Donna , Thurston , Mandcrson , anil
Howe , and yet had pages to spare. In
the latter year , Mr. Coi'mell assumed the
duties of the position , and opened "Docket
B. " The rush of cases soon necessitated
"Docket C , " and these wore successively
opened by the present city attorney. In
the twenty-six years the original docket
was used it recorded 570 cases against
the city. In the three years Mr. Council
has tilled his present position , 340 eases
have been entered , of which but 1-18 are
now pending. The increase of cases has
been oven in advance of that of the city.

Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Ha'tton , residing
on the Hats near the water works , for a

company undertook to enclose with a

and cmpha.si7.ed their hostility by de

IS rOWDBUIjY A "DEMAGOGUE ? "
The Opinion of a Mechanic Who llns
Known Him From Childhood.
To the Editor : 1 noticed in yesterday
morning's issue oi tlio Herald an article
headed "Powderly a Demagogue , " pur
porting to have been the title which John
I. Blair , a railroad magnate from Now
Jersey , gave the grand master workman
of the Knights of Labor. .Everybody who
knows Mr. Powderly , personally or by
reputation , knows that Blair was de
ceived when ho made that statement , and
the paper containing the interview pol
luted its columns in publishing it.
This great magnate claims , among
other things , to have known Mr. Pow
derly when ho worked in Ills ( Blair's )
shops in Scranton tor sfl.JJS a day. Now
to show you how unreliable this Is , 1 have
only to say that Powderly has been a
machinist since the closing of the late
war , having finished Ills apprenticeship
about that time. Ho has been considered
a lirst class mechanic by coveryono who
knows him. Have you over known a
lirst class mechinist to work for $1.125 a
day since the closing of the \\arv lam
sure Powdcrly is not a man that would
work for lets'wages than was paid other
men. 1 have known him from childhood
and 1 can say emphatically ho did network
work as a mechanic for fl.'Jfl in the shops
at Scranton or any where else.
Blair further claims that Powderly is
holding his place in the order for
the money there is in it.
This is niiotncr falsehood.
For ho has been tendered on more * than
one occasion the loreiuanship of one of
the largest machine shops at % , > QQ a
year. He is now getting $ liiOO from llio
order , working almost invariably twenty
out of the twenty-four hours of the day.
He is classed by , Blair as being an illiter
ate man. I will wager Sir. Blair that T. ,
V. Powderly will dictate two letters and
write one while he ( Blair ) is dictating
ono , and that Powderly's will bo the bet
ter literary production. Evidently Mr.
Blair is not a great reader , or ho could
have read Mr. Powdorly in the "North
American Ueviow , " wlicro the product
of his mind and pen his appeared during
the past ten years.
1 could go over every line of Mr. Blair's
printed interview and prove to the pub
lic that lie did not know what ho was
talking about , from the commencement
to the end of his interview. 1 will , however -
over , close by saying that 1 have known
Mr. Powdcrly from liis infancy and Jiiy
long residence in this city will entitle
my opinion of a man to as much weight
as a biassed railroad magnate. If the
country were filled with such advocates
as Powderly , there would bo no blood
shed in it in the attempt to right the
wrongs of labor. Yours truly ,

THE PEELER COAT OP BLUE.
The Style of Which Is a Question Bc-
tweeii the Police mid Couiioilmcu.
At the mooting of the council Wednes
day night , Councilman Kaspcr intro
duced an ordinance purporting to cotno
from the committee on police , defining
the style of coat to bo worn during the
fcummer as a double breasted dark blue ,
with sixteen buttons in front , three on
each sleeve , and two on each back poc
ket. Mr. Goodman claims he never saw
the ordinance , and , further , that the kind
of coat suggested would bo too warm for
summer wear , and prevent the men from
doing effective service. This is one of
the reasons which more than two-thirds
of the noliccmon advance against tlio in
troduction of the garment ; besides it is
too costly , costing not less than about
§ 10 , while blue blouses with stars and
buttons , and with hat and numbers would
uniform them , they claim , sufliciontly
well for all practical purposes. These
objections are set forth to the council ,
and comofrom by far the larger number
of the police.

The W. H. Harris Nickel Plate shows

bo one of the best ring
performances in America , and special
pains have been taken to make it as
thoroughly first-class as money and talent -
ont can make it. The moiuigorio is small
but embraces some rare and costly ani

o'clock to-morrow morning , but there is

This manfesto is intended for the bone-
lit of those strikers who have shown an in
clination to use violence in attempting to
carry their point. Thus far. however ,
there has been very little of this kind of
work and what has been done , has had
but trilling effect on the movement , of the
company's ] trains.tLWednesday however ,
at Butte , Montana some of tho'br.ikomen
amused themselves bv dumping freight
cars off the track , "killing" locomotives ,
etc. Gen. .Stipt. Smith says that ho is
determined to put a stop to this kind of
work , at any cost.
So far il must bo confessed , the com
pany has decidedly the best of the light.
I ho strike extends only between North
Phitto and Uawlins , and it is
now believed that it will
bo confined between these points
The hundred deputies who passed
through Omaha the other night have
been sworn in to protect the property of
the company and the men working for it.
They ; will furthermore act as brakoiucn ,
and it is believed that the freight trains
ou the troubled til visions will soon bo
running on schedule lime. The Union Pa
cific , as one official expressed itycsterday
cannot afford to declare a truce or com
promise on Half way ground. It has de
termined to push the light , and rid itselt
of the obnoxious characters and dema
gogues who have long run things with a
ilirh hand on the western divisions.
The feeling of the railroad men both
biakemen and conductors on this tli-
vi.-ion , appears to be decidedly in favor
of the company. The sentiment expressed -
pressed on all sides is that the brakemen
on the western divisions have made a
mistake in acting as tho. > did. Certain
it is that the lirakcmen's Brotherhood
and the Knights of Labor are not in
sympathy with the movement.
TIIK STIEIKHIiS WEAKENING.
Since the organization of the strike the
Union Pncilio have sent nearly 200 men
west to take tlio places1 oft the striking
brakemen. These men wore Sent out in
squads of fifty , and were- gathered at
Kansas City , Detroit and Omaha. The
last delegation arrived in Cheyenne yes
terday atlernoon. The strikers made an
attempt to pick a row with the recruits ,
but were unsuccessful. Yesterday morn
ing train No. 17-was taken from North
Phitto to Chpycniio in the charge of
freight conductors. Twenty of the btrik-
ing brakemen have been discharged at
Cheyenne , Sidney and North Pintle.
The presence of the rcciiritlng brakemen
and the discharge of tlio leading
strikers had a bciu-licial cflV'cfc upon the
loc-kout braKemen , antPthe entire force
at Cheyenne reported to Superintendent
Deuel and asked to be put to work.
Trains have been sent out from Chey
enne , south and cast , and no further
trouble is expected at that point.
The strikers have caused the company
a great deal of annoyance on the Idaho
division by damagjngcars , cutting water
p.ipos , and committing other depreda
tions. There are no trains out ot Lara-
mio. Some of the leaders among tho.
strikers at Laramie have been arrested
for damaging the company's property.
The company has acted determinedly in
the fight , and the result promises to be a
victory for them. The concession of the
Cheyenne strikers is a great point gained ,
and is likely to be followed by a general
return of the brakemen all along the line.

A very pleasant evening was spent
Wednesday in Crcighton College hall at a
lecture given by the members of the
chemical circle of the institution. This
circle consists of all students belonging
to the sciontillc class , ono of them being
accustomed to give a private lecture on
some given subject , or rather take the
place of the professor once m every two
weeks , thus giving practice in preparing
addresses , and also enabling them to
more easily give a public exhibition of
their labin'tory practice. The introduc
tory address was irivcn by Michael Me-
Gnory , who delivered his oration in a
manner which was elegant and pleasing ,
and which did him great
credit , Jos. McCardlo , assisted by Chas.
Nenicc , then gave his lecture , his subject
being "Chemical Atllnity , " Ho explained
by numerous experiments , that sugar
contains charcoal , that a solid can be
made from two gases and that gas lias
weight. Ho also made several other
beautiful as well ns successful experi
ments relating to the subject ho had
chosen. John Whaleu , assisted by
Charles Frenzor , then took the plat
form for the purpose , of explain
ing the reaction of chemicals.
Ho proved , by experiments that the
well known soda water ; has no soda at
all in it , but is only a gas which , mixed
with water and flavored is sold under the
meaningless name of soda water. Dur
ing this lecture , the magio lantern was
brought into use , in < order to moro
thoroughly illustrate the experiments.
The subject of orystalization was next
taken up by John 15.1'uray , jr. Ho gave
a splendid illustration of the magnesium
light , which is oven stronger than that of
the electric light. The combining of tin in
a solution , to copper wire , forming what
is called the tin tree , was beautifully
illustrated with the aid of the magic Inn.
torn and magnifying glass. A lead tree
was likewise formed. The assistant in
this lecture was Edward Smith.
The fourth and last lecture was given
by Win. P. Dorau , assisted by Henry Ma-
Jono , The young man ehoso for his
subject "Group Reagents. " Ho explained
why silver , which is in constant use , be
comes blackened , and also why men la
boring in white lead works become poi
soned. This lecture was accompanied
by many successful experiments , which
proved that the subject was well under
Diflercnt songs , which greatly pleased
the large and attentive audience ,
wore given nt intervals , by the College
Glee Club. On the whole tlio lecture was
a great success , and should show to the
people ot Omaha what well instructed
boys can do.

Shipped to Ireland.
Pat Murphy is the name of a youne ;
man well known in police circles as the
"Irish Lord. " Ho was arrested yesterday
in an intoxicated condition and locked
up for safe keeping.
Murphy comes fiom n long line of an
cestors , and it is said lias noble relations
still living in the old country. Ho came
to America several years ago to embark
in business , but his love for whiskey
has dragged him down so that ho
is little better , nt present , than
a sot. Ho has repeatedly been arrested
for drunkenness , and has many tlmoi

The Revival Services at the Christian
The storm Wednesday prevented many
regular attendants from attending the
services , but these who wore present
were treated to a very interesting cxcgct-
ical discourse. The theme of the speak
er , Hcv. R. C. Burrow , was the tempta
tion of Jesus as recorded in the fourth
chapter of Matthew. Although Jesus
was divine , his earthly life was an in
tensely human life ; and he met its duties ,
responsibilities and trials just as wo are
required to meet them , a\ailhig himself
of no means of defense or guidance , not
made accessible to us. He wrought mir
acles for other , never for hini'-clf , After
his baptism he fasted forty days. Skej- )
tics used to sneer at this portion of this in
spired narrative until Dr. Tanner demon
strated the possibility of fasting for tlia
length of time , without special divine aid.
So ho a pcrfcctexamplo to humanity , to
bo " tempted in all points as we arc , and
yet without sin , " Jesus must reach the
extremity of suffering from hunger.
When called upn lo relief his hunger
by commanding the stones to bo made
bread , something his followers should not
do , ho evolves nothing from his
divine nature , but goes for guidance to
the written word , where all his followers
can go. When asked to throw himself
Irom a pinnacle of the temple relying
upon a prophecy that the angels would
bear him up , he replies by quoting the
passage , "thou shall not tempt the Lord
thy God , ' ' that is you shall not put God
to the proof. No experiments are needed
to demonstrate the truth of the word of
God. When the multitude on the day of
Pentecost were pricked in their hearts ,
and asked what to do to bo saved or par
doned , and Peter told them , Acts 2 and
D3 , to ' 'repent and be baptised in the
name of Jesus Christ ; , for the remission
of sins , " it was not an experiment to sco
if God would pardon them , but an abso
lute certainty , and every ono who com
plied with the conditions , then as _ now ,
were pardoned , beyond the possibility of
a doubt. No ono who has complied
with the conditions of pardon found in
Acts 5 and ! ! 8 can doubt the forgiveness
of their past sins until they doiibt the
word of God. The s peakor attributed
the reign of terror in Franco and the
present anarchist troubles in this
country , larccly to a lack of
regard for the word of God.
When Jesus was offered all the kingdoms
of the world if ho would fall down and
worship Satan , his only reply was a quo
tation from the written wonf , torbidding
the act. What a lesson of reliance upon
what is written rather than upon our
wisdom , experience or emotions ! The
speaker closed with a touching allusion
to the tender bonds of mutual suffering
that bindh the souls of afllicted humanity
to the great and loving heart of the Son
of Gou. Services every evening this
