Immediately after the services , the cler
gy adjourned to the basement of the ca-
" thcdral , where Bishop Wortldngton in
formally addressed them. Ho urged them
to allow nothing save an urgent call to
draw them away from Iho sessions of thu
council , because it was God's business
upon wliich thev were engaged and they
should endeavor to allow two full days
for that purpose in attendance upon
the council. Ho also took occasion ,
to thank them for the zeal and enurgy
thny had displayed in attending , almost
unanimously , from all sections of tlio
state. He thanked them further for the
foresight and attention they had dis
played in coining with their vestments to

The council met again at 3 o'clock yes

The standing committees for the ensu

The Ircasurcr's report was received
nnd referred lo Iho committee on finance.
The committee on the admission of
parishes reported in favor of the admis-
hion of All Saints and St. Johns of this
city inlo the union of the diocese and in
to the council.
The annual address was then delivered
by Bishop Wortljinglon. It was an ably
prepared document , dealing with matters
* of importance to the diocesu. Among the
salient points of the address was a dis
cussion of the .revision of Iho book of
common prayer aud'nn exhaustive treat
ise by Chancellor Woolworth upon eccle
siastical trials. The address was referrett
to a committee of three , who reported in
favor of the reference of the address to
the proper committees.
A resolution was offered bv Rev. Carter -
tor , authorizing the diocebo to instruct
the educational committee lo lake steps
to secure the crcclion of , a school for the
Nebraska diocese ut Omaha for girls and
ono at Lincoln for the boys.
The resolution was offered for the rea
son that the Episcopalians ot the state

al institution that are not acknowledged
by Iho diocese. The resolution was re
ferred to Revs. Babcock , Dougherty.
Woolworth , Barber , and Mr. Guy A.
The council then adjourned to meet at
8 o'clock for n missionary meeting.
Last night a meeting was called at
Trinity cathedral , in the interest of the
Nebraska missions in particular and
' those of foreign missions in general.
k After prayer and the singing of tome
hymns and reading several pslanis.Canon
Dohortysald that ho appeared for iho
secretary of Iho missionary board , who
had done more , ho said , perhaps than
any other man in Nebraska in the pro
motion ot God's missionary work. The
_ canon referred to the number of parishes
IMUid other ecclesiastical divisions in Ne
braska , which had contributed ? 1,800
each for the mission tlio past year. With
a membership of 2,200 this contribullon
was less than sfl apiece. There were but
fifteen missionaries , and it was not likely
the board would contribute even as much
ns it had to dulray missionary expenses.
It was imperative , therefore , that a
greater amount should bo raised , because
in the dioccsoof Nebraska there were not
less than 800,010 people. Ho had lived
hero for twelve years and know that the
work could not bo done unless llioso who
rthad been blessed bvlho Lord contributed
more liberally of their means.
Another hymn was sung , and then Rov.
wvMr. Huwitt addressed the gathering. Ho
* asked whether it was a diocese of miles
or souls. He claimed it was afield worthy
of those who hiul been bunt to sow it with
vtho b'jcd of religion. He then referred to
the Held of the world wliich thu apostles
tles had been sent to subjugate , and in
comparison , ubkcd how insignificant was
" * | hat of Nebraska. The latter had an ox-
wtcnt of 300 miles inuno \ direction , and
50 in another , or 75,000 square miles. If
. one communieant were placed on each
* square mile , thu Episcopalian membership -
, ship would bo 7. " > ,000. Even if there was
r but one in ten square miles , it would bo
Uioro than thu present band of mlssiona-
* .ries could attend. The last state census
i showed u population of 741,000. With
that how Insignificant was Iho showing
' - of Episcopalians. They had railroads
running in all directions throughout the
, , 'plate , but It was a source of embarrass-
jnent to both Jjiahop and board of mis-
' eipiiaries that the men who were to work
were not hero to do it. In tno 1,500 people
ple who wore weekly rushing to Nobros-
' 'ka there were hundreds who needed the
minlstralioiib of the ministry. Ho closed
with a prayer that the Lord might move
the rich to an understanding and get
them to appreciate the pecuniary needs
pf the illocosu.
llov. Mr. Uabcook , who , by the way In
features , reminds one of thu traditional
Hichnli'ju , followed thu next hymn. There
was n Jaw governing the carrying on of
"missions. It was hud down in thu words
of Paul to tlio Corinthians , "As every man
had H'coivedotc ; How would they foul
lf thuy were addressed as St. Paul had
) addressed tlio Corinthian. "Thou pulled

.cclvodV" His hearers had received , and
? ff they did not give they would waste
faculties and blessing * God had given
theni. His theory was that , having re-
eelvcd , without aoknpwledgmont , they
bould make their donation a mutter of
conscience. . . . , , , .

Tlio Meeting ot tlio Omnlin Freight
Ittircau Lmst Night.
A fairly attended meeting of the newly
organized Omaha Freight Bureau was
held at the board of trade rooms last
evening. President Brady presided.
The minutes of the Inst meeting were
read and approved.
The article of the constitution Using
the initiation fee at $25 was read ami
adopted. A discussion arose over the re
port of the executive committee upon the
plan they had adopted for securing the
necessary fiuuls for tlio current expenses
o { the bureau , lliey Imd-dccldcd to di
vide the members into four classes lo bo
knowirus iho A , B , C nnd D classes.
The "A" class to bo assessed at the 100
rate , "B" ul 50. "C" al23 , ami "D" ut 10.
This classification was made Hint the
heavy shippers and those most
benclltted by tlio bureau should
bear the burden of the expense ami the
lessor shippers in proportion. After
some expressions of opinion tno report
was adopted , ' and the constitution as u
whole agreed to. The representatives of
the cliilercnt branches of trade then
signed Iho constitution. Secretary Gib
bon stated that he had sent out invita
tions to 104 business men to allcnd the
meeting , and that ho regretted that so
few had responded to the call. Ho
moved that a committee of six bo ap
pointed lo solicit signers to the constitu
tion of the bureau. The chair appointed
Messrs. Gibbon , Easson , Martin , Frcid ,
Broatch , Gray and Max Meyer.
Secretary Gibbon stated that ho had
been met by business men who had re
fused lo loin the bureau on the grounds
that they aid not want lo antagonism the
railroads. Ho said that the organization
was not for the purpose of antagonizing
the railroads but merely to demand jus
tice and equity from them.
He gave as an illustration that the
freight from Omaha to Fremont , on
fourth-class mailer , is 20 cents per hun
dred , while Iho rate from Chicago lo
Fremont is 6 cents per hundred , a , dis
crimination of M cunls against Omaha
shippers. It would be the business of
Iho freight bureau lo discover and cor
rect siruh discriminations
Mr. P. E. Her called allcntion lo an-
oilier dilTercnco in rales Ihat ho thought
the bureau could correct. The freight
rale from Chicago to Omaha is Iho same
as lo Council Blufl's , while from Omaha
cast the rale is 5 cents greater per hun

gives Council Blufl's merchants an equal
show with Omaha on western business ,
but culs Omaha out of western Iowa
business by reason of the excessive

An Explosion In the Union Pacific
Shops Vcstcrdny.
John McGinn , an employe of the Union
Pacilic shops , was made the victim of a
frightful accident about 5 o'clook yester
day afternoon. Ho was engaged in clean
ing , a piece of machinery , and was hold
ing in' his hand a can

workman near by was hammering a
piece of red hot iron when a spark from

knocked down and rendered unconscious.
Hjs face and neck were burned in a
frighlful manner. Fellow-employes
rushed to his rescue and succeeded in ox-
linguishing Iho flames which had ignited
his clothing. Ho was removed to St.
Joseph's hospital and at a late hour ,
under proper medical attcndance.was ro-
porled to bo rebling easily.
The Promenade Concert.
The attraction at the Exposition build
ing last night was Iho promenade concert
given by tlio Mendelssohn Trio club and
the Musical Union orchestra. The pro
gramme consisted of two parts , ono com
prising five vocal and instruinenlal num
bers , the other live dancing numbers.
Every selection of the former part was
splendidly rendered , each ono receiving
an encore. The vocal selections of JMiss
Edith Edwards were especially line The
lady , though very young , possesses a re
markably full and rich soprano voice ,
which she knows how lo nsa wilh charm

from "ALaJuivo" was received with
rapturous applause. Tlio , violin solo by
Mr. Nahan Franko was , rendered with
the good lasto and careful modulation
which characterize the work of Ihat gen
tleman. Ho was encored twice. Upon
his second response to Iho demands

The Champion Trtus.
Hernia , or rupture , is one of the most
common of troubles , and it is ono of the
most important matters tlmt thu aillictod
should secure thu best truss made , in or
der to cure their trouble. The most prac
tical truss on thu market nnd the ono
that is becoming the most popular is tlio
"Champion , " made by the Philadelphia
Truss company , un exhibit of whoso
wares attracted so much attention at the
recent pharmaceutical mooting in this
city. This truss has boon award
ed the premium nt the Centenni
al exposition , and nt the Now
Orleans exposition , and Is in nsa in
the United Slates army , navy and marine
hospital service. Thu truss is handled by
nineteen of the loading houses in Omaha ,
many of whom are using those goods to
the exclusion of all others. The truss is
thu most practical made , and wilh it the
most difficult cases of hernia can bo
treated successfully.

As the colobrnlcdi .Tolin C. Ualhouti ,
wlicn ojiprosscdvlth iv deep sense of im
pending peril to'tlio rojiubllc , was wont
to say : "Wo are in the midst ot n crisis ! "
"a crisis wliich tliruatons tlio very ox-
islcnco of the federal xinlon , " "the Tory
foundation of tlio republic. " Even to
the merest sciolist should bo plain
and clear.
If "history is philosophy teaching by
example , " wo learn from it tlio unerring
truths that , in all nations , ancient nnd
modern , whether democratic or despotic ,
whether republican or imnarchial , the
absoptlon of the land by the few , whether
under the forms of corporations or by
privileged social orders , to the exclusion
of the great body of the people , sooner or
later uprooted and destroyed all tlio
sources of life in society nnd the state.

internal improvement and educational
grunts , all with powerful interests rami-
lied throughout all branches of the na
tional government , had intrenched them
selves in a citadel , from which they de
fied all parties to dislodge them.
Nevertheless and fortunately the now
commissioner , Gon. Sparks , possessed
the qualities for the hnrculean work be
fore mm. He granplcd instantly with
( ho monster monopolies and corrupt
rings , infesting and devouring our
public lands. Ho very naturally aroused
nil their ire , ajl their vituperation and
misrepresentation , but fortilicd by : v sim
ple rectitude of purpose and the de
mand of duty , ho steadily and fearlcsly
pursued his resolution to purge the land
service , if possible , ot all the elements
of corruption ami traud , and I am cm-
abled from ollicial sources to give your
readers a statement of the success so far
of his administration.
Under the cscHcntAcK the Texas Pacific
grant , those huuH1 ofj the grant covered
by the Southern Pjieilte road at the Rio
Colorado were ojcclujtcd by the depart
ment and awarded to the latter com
pany. Gen. Splirks by his order of
April 5th , 1885 , reclaimed these lands ,
and thus prese.rvcil to" the public domain
an area of abou iCiOj(100 ( acres.
. To the Atlantic/it 1'acilie company Sec
retary Deiano h tl ajvarded unlawfully
lands aloua a p'atl of its route' , not in
cluded in its gram. , 380 miles in length.
Gon. Sparks , by'his'idccisiou of October
fully to tlio Northern 1'iicilic lands along
that part of its roultt'Tvoni Portland on to
Puget Sound. Gen. Sparks , by his de
cisions in the case of Mellao vs. The
Northern Pacific , reclaimed theso.'lands ,
and thus preserved to the puolio domain
an area ot about I,7e5,000 acres.
Under the indemnity provision of rail
road grants , granting lieu lands to tiio
corporations , lor losses incurred by the
settlement or other disposal of lands
within their grants prior to the definite
location of their roads , abuses of great
magnitude and cruelty Had grown up
under arbitrary practices Jn favor of the
roads. The pitiful prayers of settlers
were unheeded , The corporations worn
supremo. The lands ot settlers , doubled
in value by improvements and years of
painful ted , were in hundreds of cases
confiscated , the settlers and their families
evicted or compelled to purchase their
homes from the usurping corporations.
Settlement was retarded. The nation ,
as well as tlio settler , was incalculably in
jured. Gen. Sparks early called a halt
to this cruel injustice. Ho coerced the
corporations to conform their selections
to the law as defined by the courts , and
to verify the lossds 'for which indemnity
was claimed. He thus preserved large
areas to the public domain , as well as the
farms and lawful rights of thousands of
honest settlers against the merciless
greed of incorporated laud grabbers.
Under his revised system of measure-
month of lands under railroad grants
largo areas are preserved the public do
main and the corporations shorn of much
valuable land previously regarded as em
braced within their grants. Thus the
area of the Union Pacilic , the road of
which runs through Nebraska and part
of Wyoming and Utah ) has been reduced
in Nebraska alone to about 3ii,100 ; acres.
and llio reduction in tho. territories will
bo oven heavier. The area of the Atclti-
sou , Topeka & Santa I'o road ( -IGD-iW miles
in length ) has been' reduced about -81-
753.1)1 ) acres , Hundreds of thousands ,
even millions of acres , in the aggregate
will thus bo preserved to. the public do
main and opened to settlement under
our homestead law.

Private land claims , based upon Span
ish-Mexican and other foreign grants , had
been prolific sources of prodigious frauds
upon the government , and the crudest
wrongs upon settlers. The great major
ity of these are , ivjiolly , fraudulent. A
grant primarily for 'tono smiaro league"
was fraudulently'o.\panded into " 109

" cases" in " "
partment "special "logger"
and "cowboy" entries made ' "special"
through partisan and other influences ,
nnd through criminal practices under our
commuted homestead and uro-cinption
systems , "logger11 and "cowboy" entries
had usurped a largo area of our imblip
domain. "Timber bosses' " in hiring
"loggers" and "cattle oosses'.1 in hiring
herdsmen or "cowboys" stipulated that
oftcli should enter in Ids individual name
ICO acres of era/lug nnd timber lands for
the benefit of their respective syndicates.
Trusty prospectors sought out the land ,
experienced lawyers and "loirgor" and
"cowboy" perjurers completed the nec
essary proofs , and the land was formally
transferred to the syndicates.
Now no cases are made "special , "
Gen. Sparks' early order suspending all
entries has practically worked Us pri
mary and principal purpose in the cs <
tablishmont of a purified land entry sys
tem. The certainty of iv rigid scrutiny
in the department and field into all en
tries or application for warrants for land
has worked a destruction of nil the old
cattle and lumber band grabbing ma
chinery , rendering "loggers" and "cow
boy" cnlries impracticable.
Wholesale fraud had organized itself
under the system of special deposits for
surveys. Under the act of March 3,1870 ,
corlificatcs of these deposits became
negotiable , nnd a market opened for
them , by being made receivable in pay
ment lor publlo lands throughout the
domain , The flood gates of corruption
were also opened. Wealthy syndicates
were organized for the control of all sur-
voring contracts under this special deposit -
posit system. Tito aggregate of those deposits -
posits prior to 1870 , from 1802 , seventeen
years , Was only * > ; W8Oi5.Gi ) , but
the aggregate in the live years
subsequent to 1870 , reached the
enormous sum ot $5,813,303. Fraudulent
contracts and fraudulent survuys sur
veys only on paper now became the rule ,
and were dutifully approved ,
were liquidated by an obsequious
department. Re-surveys were run-
dered necessary. One sotllor in a
township was adjudged all that was noc-
cessary to authorize a survey , or rather
a contract for a survey , and fraudulent
surveying contracts multiplied almost ad
libitum. Hundreds of thousands of dollars
lars were thus fraudulently disbursed to
corrupt surveying rings. Reports of
now examiners in the field are burdened
with mortifying tales of "defective" "im
perfect" and "wholly fraudulent surveys"
"no surveys at all. "
Wealthy lumber and other corporations
also manipulated this system for their
benefit through the usual practices of
fraudulent entries. Thus 100,000 acres of
the most valuable California redwood
lauds estimated as worth $100 per aero ,
were fraudulently appropriated by an
English firm at a cost of only § 3 per acre
for surveys.
Their purgation of this corrupt system ,
so vast was its proportions and ramifi
cations was truly a herculean labor.
Nevcrlhlcss Gen. Sparks , by the suspen
sion of all surveying contracts and sur
veys ; by a new system of surveys in
which all are held to a rigid accounta
bility , and an exhaustive examination of
all surveys in Iho department and field ,
the surveying service has been greatly
improved , and fraudulent biirveys in the
future rendered impracticable.
Wholesale and systematic spoliation of
our timber lands had also become "uni
versal , flagrant and limitless. " Great
railroad corporations , beneficiaries of
the government added their depredations
to Iho thievery of timber corporations like
the Montana improvement company 01-
ganizcd under the auspices of the North
ern Pacific , for the monopoly of Ihe lim
ber traffic of Montana and Idaho. Whole
ranges of our most valuable pine and
other woodlands along .streams and water
coiuses , miles in extent , were denuded
of their timber , aided by instructions and
rulings of the land department. But by
Ihe vigorous execution of the laws
forbidding and punnisliing
depredations , Gen. Sparks has greatly
checked these criminal .speculations.
Suits criminal and'civil for the recovery
of millions of dollars , the value of tim
ber stolen , have been ordered and will bo
pushed vigorously to judgment. In the
mouth of February alone bints upon the
reports of government agents were ord
ered for the recovery of timber damages ,
equaling $3,031UG5. No timber thief
will now escape.
And so on under every grant of lands
and every law relating lo Ihe disposition
of our public domain swamp land-
grants , grants for educational and inter
nal improvement purposes , wagon road
nnd cabal granls , limber culture and
mineral lands organized fraud despoiled
Iho domain of millions of acres and de-
foaled the purposes of thu'grant or law.
But under the vigorous administration of
Gon. Sparks' practical remedies have
been applied , and "land crabbing" or
fraud is at last and rapidly disappearing
from our land system.
Do not these achievements of Gon.
Sparks constitute a grand work ? Should
wo not in simple justice unstinlingly ac-
knowlcgo it ? By this recovery of mil
lions of acres of lands illegally or fraudu
lently claimed and allowed or stolen by
the suppression ot fraudulent "cowboy"
anil "logger" entries in behalf of corrupt
catlle and lumber syndicates by blip-
prcssion of fraudulent pre-emption and
and homestead entries by Ihu purifica
tion of our surveying system , by Iho sup
pression in a word of all forms of land
grabbing , Gen. Sparks has labored suc
cessfully to preserve to Ihe people what
ib left of our vast public domain. Nor
can tho-io important labors bu really over
estimated in their intluonces on thu pros
perity and happiness of our whole puo-
This nation , indeed , is deeply interest
ed. Every thinking man , every man
having at heart thu welfare of his country
and species , thatju-day , in our
labor froujilcs , " wo"aro conlronling a
problem pregnant with deplorable possi
bilities. Our public lands are rapidly
disappearing. General Sparks , in a
statement repeated by Secretary Lamar ,
estimates Unit three-fifths of our domain ,
embracing the moil valuable of our ngri-
cultural , timber and mineral lands , have
already been disposed of that of the re
maining two-fifths a great proportion is
unfit for human habitation. Neverthe
less , our population is rapidly increasing ,
both by immigration and natural causes.
Our cities and towns already are greatly
overcrowded. What shall bo done with
this surplus humanity so fiercely battling
for bread ? Truly a momentous inquiry !
Soon there will bo no outlet for them
through settlement on the publiu lands ,
"Go west , young man , " even now has
practically no meaning. Our labor troub
les , thurufore. must necessarily inuruuso.
Conflicts , perilous and deplorable in their
probable results , will bo Inevitable. Thus
our land combining with and aggravat
ing our labor troubles , will frightfully

wreck the very foundation of the repub
History enlightens us by its examples ,
The usurpation or absorptions of the

patricians orders , crowded the laboring
populations into the cities or towns ,
where unable to obtain subsistence by

A Ijovcly Crcaluro.
"Carp" in Cleveland Lender : The
pictures of Herr Most which are being
published by the papers do not resemble
him. In them lie appears to lie n fair-
lookin'g man. He is in reality as ugly as
sin , and his frame is as badly joined as
was that of Caliban. I saw him hero two
years ago. His face is twisted about so
that one-half of its seems to bo trying to
look over ono shoulder with a frown ,
while the other half is trying to smile
over the other. His head slopes upward
on n plane like that of \ \ fiat-headed
Indian , and Ids whole cranium is. an
anomaly of ugliness. His eyes are blue
and strained. His twisted-tip face Is
covered with reddish-brown whiskers ,
and his hair is combed straight back.
from the cowlicks which sprout from the
base of the Inclined piano of his head.
Ills mouth is all on one side of his face ,
and it has been said that it looks as
though ho were in the habit of unbutton
ing his collar with his teeth. Ho was full
of nihilism when ho was here , and ho
said things to mo which , if uttered in any
other country , would have boon fit cause
for imprisonment. Ho is indeed a
dangerous man , nnd both Austria and
Germany imprisoned him for his actions
in those countries. Ho comes from old
Angburg , in Bavaria , and ho has devoted
his life to attempting to tear down the
social structures.
The Dinicuttjr Solved.
Troy Telegram : Old Dr. Howson was
distinguished for philanthropy. On one
occasion the doctor had a case of malig
nant typhoid fever. He prescribed rest
and nourishment for his patient.
"Give Dan plenty of chicken. Ho must
have moro nourishment. "
"Shall I hill a chicken ? "
"Yes , you'd better kill n rooster ; broil
it well and add plenty of butter. Patients
with typhoid fever like plenty of gravy. "
Dan's wife killed , dressed and cooked a
line chicken.
"That's about right , " said the doctor ,
who v.ras superintending the job , as ho
enviously eyed the chicken.
"Dan , how're you feeling. "
"First-rate , doctor , first-rale. "
"Lot mo feel your pulse. "
Dan extended his arm ami hand.
"You are more feverish than usual. I
just ordered your wife to broil n chicken ,
but you can't eat it : you're to feverish , "
"What shall we do doctor ? " inquired
the wife.
"I sec no way out of the difficulty butte
to cat the chicken ourselves. I once
suffered from typhoid fever myself ,
madam. "

Hydrophobia Purely Imaginary.
Dr. William Lehman of Baltimore : I
don't believe in Pasteur's inoculation
theory because 1 don't ' believe in hydro
phobia. It is in my opinion an imaginary
disease , and I defy anybody to produce a
well-authenticated instance of where
hydrophobia attacked an idiot or an
inlant bitten by a rabid dog. It needs a
good , vivid imagination as an adjunct of
tlie disease. Some years ago a man came
to mo for cauterization of what ho
claimed was the bite of a mad dog. It
did not look to mo like a wound made
by teeth , but I cauterized it to satisfy
bun. A month afterward that man died
with all the symptoms of hydrophobia
as described by standard authorities.
AfUn his death it was established con
clusively that the wound was made by a
nail in the fence that ho had climbed lo
get away from the dog , and also that the
animal was very old and only had lliroo
teeth those very far back in the jaw and
impossible to use lo bile with. ' 1 hat case
shuttered my faith m hydrophobia , and
subsequent invc.iti ations dc.stioycd it
altogether. There is no such thing.

CHICAGO. May 10. [ Special Telegram. ]
Wheat was neither ono thing nor the other
to-day. It was nervous , ntid scalpers had a
day of It bunding prices backward nnd for-
waid. Only a modoialo business was trans-
nctcd and fluctuations woio within about * { o

Tlio first rally was on the statement that 335-
000 bushels had been worked oil hero for ex
port , and that loom had been engaged tor It.
The amount proved to be exaggerated and
scalpers beat the prices down. Clearances
from Now York showed tip largo and there
was talk ot a possible decrease of
4,000,000 bushels this week lu wheat
and Hour. This estimate was subsequently
reduced to 3,000,000 mid ,500,030 , but It served
as a healthy rc.slbtnnt , and the market was
hold firm. Foielgn orders were on the Hoot
tor a considerable amount , and some lots of
moderate size worn undoubtedly worked.
Corn fluctuated KfM ( adurliiK the forenoon ,
