every nicklc of thulr indebtedness in
Omaha.
A very lively and thoronglilv interest-
ine huv suit will grow out of
this failure. The papers will 1)0 prepared
nnd thi ) CUM ) will be lilctl at as
early a day sis possiblo. Tlio action will
bo brought by Sloman Itros. against
Hntdfitrcut's local agency on the ground
that a false "call report" Issued by tills
company was tlio cause of the failure.
Morris Sicilian , who claims that the af
fairs of the llrm have not been correctly
shown up In tlio local papers , says
that the trouble all are so over a
personal quarrel between himself and a
gentleman connected with Hradstrcets.
nnd that a day or two thereafter , that
agency sent out a "call report" which
as aliened , waM totally false in many
particulars , and overdrawn in others.
This "call report" alarmed the eastern
firms doing business with Sloman liro.s.
nnd caused them to swoop down upon
the Omaha Imiihu. Sloman Bros , kept on
meeting these claims as fast as they came
in , until thi ) pressure became too crcat
iml they were forced to succumb.
One of the doeuments to bo produced
in evidence was shown to a reporter by
'Morris Slomau yesterday. ltis ; a cony of
rating sent out by llradstrcet on April 7 ,
which speaks favorably of the firm.

Mr W. O. Taylor , manager of llrad-
streets Omaha agency , was questioned
yesterday afternoon concerning thn state
ment of Sloman that the "call" report of
Dratlstreet had been made upon false
grounds. Ho stated that early in .March
.Morris Sloman made a statement to the
agency that the linn was in debt but
$14,0K ( ) . Upon this statement the agency
gave the linn a favorable rating. Later
it was discovered that the tirm'fi liabili
ties amounted to live or six times the
amount stated by Morris Sloman , and ac
cordingly , on March 80. tie rating of the
tirtn was withdrawn. Mr. Taylor says
that the rating of Sloman Itros. should
have been withdrawn in January when
Samuel Sloman left the Iirm.

ONI/Y A CUP OF WATER.
How a New York Drummer Was
Drugged and Ilobbnd.
"That diamond ring has a history , "
said a traveling man in the Pnxton
rotunda the other night , displaying a
well-sized " " his little .
- "spark" on finger.
"I was robbed of that ring two years
ago on the tram while going from Now
York to IJnft'alo , in the slickest manner
imaginable. It won't take buta moment
to tell the story , and I'll just relate il to
yon. It may prevent your being caught
in the same trap some time.
"I fell into conversation with a passen
ger on the train , a nice appearing.gentlc-
manly young fellow , who told me fliat he
was gome out to Chicago to establish
himself in business. I noticed that he
took good care to size IIP my ring and
scorned to take an especial interest in it.
Finally , a hour before the train was duo
at liuIValo , ho got up , wont to the water
cooler and took a drink. Very cour
teously , as I thought , when ho came back
ho brought with him a cup of
the refreshing liquid and offered itto mo.
Of course I thanked him ami drank it.
I thought it tasted rather queer , but said
nothing. Pretty soon 1 began to grow
drowsy and putting my head on a folded
overcoat , fell back asleep. I know noth
ing more until I awoke in Buffalo. The
very first thing I noticed after
I fully roali/.cd that I was in
the laud of the waking was that my
$ .700 . diamond ring was gouo from my
linger. And the nice-looking stranger
was gone from my sldo. In a moment
then I realized the truth. The water
which had been offered me had been
drugged by the polite young man , and
then I had been robbed. To cut a long
story short , Mr. Thief was run to the
ground within twenty-four hours by an
experienced detective , being captured in
a little town a few miles from Buffalo , at
which station ono of the passengers had
seen him get off. The diamond ring was
found in his possession. Ills full con
fession of the crime exactly corroborated
my first suspicions. IIo is now "doing
time" in Sing Sing. "

To Swell In tlio Exposition IIuililltiR
'at ' tlio June Festival ,
TttesdayCthero was a Qjolni Erohcarsal
at tlio exposition building of thy local
chorus of the Juno festival The attend
ance of singers was smaller than usual
owing to other engagements , but the
orchestra had a good representation.
Conductor Pratt was present and led the
work ,
The parts rehearsed were those of the
"Messiah" and the ' 'Hymn of Praise. "
In the former , especially , tlio chorus dis
played most satisfactory ability. It was
rendered with intelligent and forceful
effect. With the other piece , there was
not displayed the same proficiency , but
another reliearsal would servo to equalize
the standard.
There seems to have been made a mis
take in placing the orchestra upon a
platform of nearly the same level as that
of the singers. In some instances a
number of the latter are hidden by the
musicians in trout , while , for a largo part
of the audience in the front rows the
orchestral and not the vocal effort will bo
that to reach the cars. It is , of course ,
advisable that the orchestra should bo
well nmler the direction of tlio conductor ,
but that effect might bo secured and still
have the orchestra in position where they
would not be really the , principal fea
ture of ilia occasion to u largo part of
the audience.
There will bo another choral rehearsal
on next Tnosday night , about forty in
number from tlio singing societies of
Chicago will bo present. On Wednesday
morning there will bo a jqiut rehearsal
of all : ho participants , including the
Chicago orchestra , which will bo about
thirty strong. Agents arc now working
tip a patronage in the state , nnd a large
attendance is expected ,

The state ofllccrs of the A. 0,11. , have
issued a call for a state convention ,
which will bo hold at their hall on Thir
teenth and Jackson Blroots on Monday ,
Juno 21. The convention will bo a very
important one for the order and its
spread in Nebraska , anil it is expected
will bo attended by delegates from all
parts of the state.
A great Impetus was given the society
throughout the United States by the atti
tude assumed by IMshop Ireland of Min
nesota at the national convention lately
held there
Steps will bo taken by the delegates at
the state convention here , to largely in
crease the membership and more
thoroughly establish it in inlluence
throughout the state.
It is expected a grand reception will bo
tendered the delegated after their labors
are over by the mum bora of the local
division and their lady friends , particu
lars of which will bo auhounced later.

Thursday evening the Union Pacific
will send out an excursion train to Loup
City , where the citizens of that growing
burg are to celebrate the opening of the
Lonp Citv branch.
The Union Pacific sonic time ajro
ordered twenty now engines from the
lialdwin manufactory in the cast , and
one of them , numbered 817 , rolled into
thu yards yesterday ( at an early hour.
Tlio Grand Island train was delayed a
few minutes this morning by cattle on
the trncic near Klkhorn. The delay
enabled No. 1 , westbound , to pull
out , and permitted the suburban
to pull in along the regular platform.
This latter train has been compelled ,
heretofore , to unload its passengers out
among the tracks in the depot. It is com
mented on that llio management should
cither build a new platform or enable
the train in question to reach tho'old one.
The train carried about I'-Vi passengers
between Grand Island and Omaha , > nnd ,
about the same number going west last
night. This number , it is thought , will
increase with the country.
The first class faro from this city to
Chicago is now $11 ; second class , it is
only $8.

Wahoo , and will go thence to Lincoln ,
from which point ho will join the oscui-

The Rulilc Case.
The man Norelia , about whom so much
has been said and written in thq past two
weeks , in connection with the Ruble mur
der , turned up yesterday in a most unexl
pected manner. His correct name is
Francis Norolius , " and he is a Swede ,
working for A. G. Willis , of this city.
Norelius , however , is not the mysterious
man in blue , who was seen with Ruhlo
on the day preceding the murder. IIo
was confounded with him on account of
the fact that ho registered at the City
hotel tlio niirlit before the murder , imme
diately before Ruhlo and his friend , the
man in blue. The matter was called to
the attention of Norelius' father , who
lives Din Crawford county. Yes.

nty , Mr. L. IJ. ' Moony , arrived
in Omaha and took Norolius to the pojico
court , where a satisfactory explanation
was made.
