Among tlio real cstato transfers pub
lished hi the HrK of Saturday , the one
Hint attracted the moat attention was the
K II Cntlln ( single ) to Frederick TJ .Ames ,
jiait of It l , bile 120 , Omaha , w il-Slo,000.
Mr. Ames , as is well known , is ono of
the principal owners of the Union Pa
cific , and Is olio of the wealthiest men in
the United States. This i.s his first invest
ment in Omaha real estate , and it was
negotiated during his recent visit to this
city in company with Charles
Francis Adams. At that time lie
made a careful survey of the city
nnd was struck with its wonderful
improvements during the last In o years.
JIo concluded to make u largo invest
ment in Omaha and erect a largo block.
The ahove purchase of part of lot 1 , block
120 , is the twenty-two foul , two doors
west of the Omaha Savings bank , on
IJoiiglas street. Arrangements have boon
made to purcha.se the remaining forty-
four feet of the lot , thus giving a front
age of sixty-six fuel on Douglas and
eighty feet on Thirteenth. It is the in
tcntion of Mr. Ames to tear down the
buildings and erect in their place a six-
Mory block to cost over $100,000. , This
block is to-be made the handsomest bus- !
ness building In Omaha. The plans are to
be drawn by a Boston architect. It will ho
u lireproof"structure , and will bo called
the Ames block. Work will probably bo
begun on it in a few weeks , and an cllbrt
will bo made to have it completed next
fall. The Omaha Savings bank , of which
Hon. Guy Barton is president nnd prin
cipal owner , will occupy the same loca
tion in the new building that it now has
in the old block. Mr. Ames has been in
duced to make this investment in Omaha
principally thiough the efforts of Mr.
llarton , nnd in all probability it
will bo followed by other heavy invest
ments by him and his associates.
BATLKV'S HAD lillGAK.
A Y.M. O. A. ProtCKO Uols Ills Hone-
Gco. Bntloy is the name of a pale , mild
looking young man who came to Omaha
about four weeks ngo and sought and
gained the confidence of some of the good
people of this city. Ho has played the
part of the "viper in the bosom , " and IH
now wanted by his benefactors , whom ho
has deceived and outraged most cruelly.
Batloy came to Omaha , friendless ,
moneyless and without the prospect of
obtaining immediate employment. Ho
fell in with the loading members of the Y.
M. C. A. bore , who at once became inter
ested in ms case , Tlioy took him in ,
clothed him and fed him. Mr. Joplin ,
the secretary of the local branch , was par
ticularly kind to him and found him odd
jobs about town , so that ho managed to
make a pretty fair living. Ho seemed to
uo a very honest open young fellow
( ho gave his age as 10 _ years )
nnd his story , to the effect that the great
strikes in Chicago had deprived him of
employment was calculated to procnro
no little sympathy for him. Several days
iigo , he was reccomended to Mrs Wood ,
living on upper Farnam .street near
Twenty-fourth , who n eded a young man
Jo do work about the house. The lady
employed him , after satisfying herself by
the references offered that ho was an
honest young man. Batloy did his work
well , and all went smoothly until yester
day. Ho wont away early in the morn
ing , nnd did not show up during tlio day.
At night ho was still absent and Mrs.
Wood beg m to suspect something was
wrong , She made a search and found
that two $100 bills which she had placed
in her reticule in ono of the closets.
wore missing. She at once suspected
that Batley was the thiof. Mr. Jojilin of
the Y. M. C. A. went over to Council
Bluffs yesterday and found ,
Euro enough that a young man
answering Bntley's description ,
had purchased a ticket to Chicago
via. the Northwestern , offering in pay
ment therefore , one of thn "centuries. "
Marshal Cummings yesterdy scut
telegrams to the police in
Chicago , ordering Batloy' sarrcst ,
nnd ho al.so notilicd tlio conductor
on the Northwestern tram which lett
hero last evening to bo on the lookout for
tlio nbscondur , and not allow him to
leave the train.
Closing SCCIIOH of tlio Methodist
Perhaps no service since the beginning
presented the same measure of attraction
us tiio closing exorcises at the exposition
building on Sunday night , which Pastor
JloKaig pleases to call the jubilee incut-
ing. As a prelude a few songs were
sung , and Rev. I. A. Brodrick led in an
Kov. Mr. Savidgo then introduced Air.
B. U. Patterson , and the latter stated
that ho had been chosen by a committee
to present an interesting feature , and
ono which appear of moro interest after
the people might know what it is. lie
stated that Mr. MoKaig was impatient to
get at the work of saving souls , and ho
nuwtboqulck in getting before the people
ple the question of paying the remnant
of the liability for the rent of the build
ing now being used for the meetings.
Mr. MeKaig preferred paying the full
Rinount unholpcd , but wu have taken the
matter out of his hands , and the people
will holp. Mr. Patterson has more than
common-good gifts for such work , and
displayed skill in getting the matter before -
fore the audience. The response from
the audience was liberal and in a little
while $700 was promised. This MICCOSS
scorned to increase the enthusiasm , and
tko song following w.i3 rendered with
good cheer , a largo part of the mi-
Ilcv. Mr. MeKaig followed tins un with
onn of the most earnest and thrilling
jtulks ho over made in Omaha , and was re
peatedly cheered in a very decorous man
ner , but it came from all over the house ,
Ho said : " 1 thought at first of taking a

an evangelist that kept ahead of mo. He
has kept ahead , and 1 couldn't help it. "
Mr. Ititlur followed his remarks with a
thrilling prayer , ami then gave an invi

saying he would never give another invi

A I'cdtllcr'o Ghost Story A. Mystery
A party of men. representing various
traveling professions , were sitting in the
ollice of n Tenth street hotel hist evening
relating their adventures and experiences
to an interested party of listeners I
being the notion peddlers turn , ho began :
"It happened some live years : igo about
eight miles cast of a little town in south
western Iowa. The county for miles
around had been worked up to a heat of
excitement over the report of strange
things seen nnd noises heard in nnd
around n place called "Horse Thief
Grove. " I happened in the vicinity
nbout the time things were the hottest
and immediately made up my mindfrom
the stories , that there was trickery in the
strange lights scon. ' 'Horse Thief
Grove" received its nnmo some eighteen
or twenty years ngo by common consent
of the neighborhood , owing to two horse
thieves having been bhot nnd buried
there by a vigilance committee.
The remains of n "jiino monument"
is nil that marks the spot
whore the little mounds used to
be. As the grove is located in a
hollow , nnd is thickly grown with under
brush , it is very gloomy indeed , moro so
especially when it is supposed to harbor
the uneasy spirits of n brace of criminals
whoso bodies were buried in it. The
graves nre in the center. Around them
nro four of the largest trees , whoso
branches meet nbove und form a leaty
canopy. The reports were that nt 1U
o'clock each Friday night blue and white
lights wore seen to rise from the grave
nnd disappear in the branches above.
Not one among the surrounding settlers
could be found bravo enough to make an
attempt to ferret out the mystery. As
before stated i happened along about this
time and had soon made up my mind
that the whole affair was due
to some mischievous mortal. Well , one
Friday night at the time when good folks
tire in bed , 1 nut n ] > istol in my pocket
nnd slipped down to the grave. During
the day I invoMigated mutters. I knew
exactly where to go. It was nearly time
for the performance to ot > cn up. There
was an eager and expectant crowd on a
hill at a convenient distance waiting to
see the lights. I mentally decided to give
them an afterpiece , that night , ns I lay
snugly concealed under the bushes near
the graves. 1 did not liavo long to wait
before I heard the sounds I had been ex
pecting the trampling of feet near mo.
Looking up cautiously 1 beheld two sons
of my host , two very mischievous lads ,
carrying a rope and lantern with blue
and whlto glass. Everything was plain
to mo now. The boys would creep up a
narrow ami deep ditch to the graves.
By the aid of a rope running over a pul
ley fastened in the trees they could run tlio
lantern up and down while concealed in
the brush some distance oil' , relying on
the superstitions fear of the others to
prevent discovery. After they had every
thing arranged nnd had run the lantern
up once I commenced haying something
in a terrifying voice. Thov dropped
everything nnd started through the brush
like frightened sheep. I lira ! a few shots ,
gave a blood curdling yell and quietly
slipped back to the house. Next
morning the excitement was terrible -
riblo to witness. My host's house ,
being the nearest was crowded with men
wearing nn awed expression , some as if
they expected n dire calamity. After
hearing the various eonjcctures'und sug
gestions I arose and told my story. My
statements were bornn out by liml'mg the
rope and lantern. Nothing but tlioir ex
treme youthfulness saved th perpetra
tors from something worse than the gen
tle caresses of a hickory switch. Ileft
the next day but I'll ' warrant that was
the last of the ghost of "Horso Thief

For Possession of the Iiot on liCftvcn-
worth nnd Eleventh Streets.
The dispute between the Union rAciflc
nnd the gas company as to the ownership
of the lot on the northeast corner of
Eleventh nnd Lcavcnworth streets .re
mains as it was on Saturday last , No
Incursion , as had been expected , was
nindoby the Union Pacific forces Salur-
d"y night. The gas men aio on hand in
good numbers. A number of them are
fii constant patrol of the company's prop
erty , while others are convenient to respond -
spend to any alarm. All of them nro
heavily aimed and instructed , when
directed , to repel any further invasion by
direst force. . . .
A reporter for the HUB called upon
Claim Agent Manchester yesterday to
learn the Union Pacific's side of the con
test with reference to the lot on the north
west corner of Eleventh nml Lcavcn
worth streets. The information gained
was that the claim that the gls ; company
owned the lot in question was false.
Over the southern part of it and lot seven
immediately wost.tfio Union Pacific claims
to have a right of way , which it knows it
can provo nt any time.
This right wa % granted manj' years ago
when the main track of the Union Pacilic
was that now running along Leaven-
worth , on each side of which the right
extended 101) ) foot. Within this distance
! H included a part of lots 7 and 8. The
part ot lot 7 so included is anil has been
for many years occupied by the gas _ com
pany with its conl sheds. This part ,
Mr. 'Murphy , speaking for tlio company ,
informs the Union Pacilic , is looked upon
as the property of the former , from the
fact that it has been in its possession for
a number of years.
With reference to lot 8 , it was recently
owned by a party named Cnllalinn , nnd
was so 'frequently overrun with fetid
water from the gas works that he sued
the latter company and recovered dam
ages. The gas company then induced the
Union Pacilic road to buy the lot , because
Callnhan would never sell to the gas
people The fco to thin lot , Mr. Man
chester claims , was never given to Mr.
Mnrphv , nnd is , in fact , now held by the
Union Pacilic , and it is claimed to show
that the part of the lot sold to the gas
company was that north of the north
line of the right of way of the Union
Pacific. This fact the latter is willing to
concede , but it is enthusiastically op
posed to admitting that all of the lot , or
even all 01 lot 7 , is the property oftthc
gas company. Mr. Manchester clnims
that limit , of the road's right of way is
clearly defined in all the earlier trans
fers , and that the matter cannot be con-
rtavcrtod. If this bo true , the road can
ely claim to a triangular piece of both
lots , running from a point about thirty-
live feet on Eleventh street north of
Lcavonworth to n point on the south
western line sf lot 7. There is also a
small fraction in lot 0 , but that is too
small to trouble nbout.
United States Court.
In the United States circuit court yes-
yesterday Judge Brewer gave decision in
two cases. The lirst was that of D. M.
Tomlin , of Arnpnhoc to enjoin the collec
tion of a judgment held by Toolo , Sher
man & Co. , and Locknwood , Englchardt
& Co. The decree was in favor of the de
fendants on the proposition that the as
signment of W. 7 , Tavlor to D. M. Tom
lin was a fraud , winch instead of pos
sessing the swcut. flavor of honest , swell- ,
cd like the body of Lazarus after it' ' had
lain several days in the grave , and that
Taylor and Tomlin were parties to it.
The other was that of Win. Verhuscs ,
of Madison , \Vis. , to enforce a judgment
of ? 2lpO against Kyron &Ticrnoy. Tier-1
n oy is the proprietor of the house"
of that name in Tccnmseli in this
htatc , nnd it , was sought to levy upon that
as also eighty acres in the immediate vi
cinity of tlie town. The decree of the
court was that the hotel was beyond reach
of attachment because it might bo con
sidered the homestead of the defendant ,
nnd also because of the statute of limita
tion. It ruled however that the eighty acres
could be subjected to n licnbecnuso it ap
peared that Ticrnoy's ' assignment of the
same to his wife after lie hnd purchased
it out of the income of the hotel , wns
evidence of fraud and would not stand.
The defendant was represented by Ap-
plegato & Son , of Tecumseh , and the
plamtin" by Arthur Wtikcloy , who wns
warmly congratulated by older members
of the bar on his success.
Robert Seymour , ono of the indicted
Dcnverites. who were arraigned hero last
winter for land frauds , was brought into
court yesterday afternoon to give bail for
his appearance nt the next term of court.
In view of the met that there will bo no
court for six months , Seymour wa.s

Paying ; Teachers.
President Points of tlie board of edu
cation is dissatisfied with the inconsistent
manner in which teachers nre paid. A
graduate in a full course from a normal
receives when commencing to tench tlio
full salary of $70 per monlli. A grad
uate of the high school , without oXporl-
cnco , if employed at all , receives but
if 10. A teacher from a graded school re
ceives a certain amount of pay for Hint ,
while ono from nn ungraded school , no
matter what her experience , has to com
mence at the lowest mini. Air. Points
thinks that if any importance be attached
to a teacher's experience in giving her
employment , it ought to bo recognized
ill her _ pay. These irregulnrjties and in
consistencies Mr. Points will endeavor
to have the board regulate.
