gram to the HKI : . ] The recent promotion ol
Assistant Superintendent 11. F. Koyce to be
general superintendent of the Hock Island
system , calls attention to the rciunrknblo suc
cess of many Iowa railroad men. Mr. Itoycc
lived for fifteen years in this city , coming
here In 1NW. when tlie Itock Island entered
thocity , nnd before II had built a mile west
of here. Ho had charge of Its trains as the
road KKtdiially built extensions south and
vest , nml finally became superintendent ot
the Iowa division from Davenpoit to Coun
cil Bluffs. Three years nice ho was made as
sistant siipeilntendent of the wholn Hue ,
with headquarters nt Davenpoit , nnd now ho
receives his new promotion ns Kennral super
intendent of thu wliolo systum , with head
quarters probably nt Chicago. Like the ma-
jorlly of succittsful railroad men In the west ,
air. Koyce has worked his way up from the
bottom of tlio ladder. Hu commenced an
clerk In a freight olllce , then was station
agent nt n .small place , then conductor on : i
train running between Mimcatlne anil I own
City , then n division superintendent , then
fuiiher promotion , and now general superin
tendent of one of thu largest lines in tlie
United States.

that while ungaifcd In this position he made

and ptcpaicd the way for further honors. It
seems that there was an accident on the " ( J"

to the .spot , nnd not only ntl'oidcd all reliel
possible for the suirerei-H , but drew up "mill

cities , wns called together ngaln. It met h
Columbia hall , First avenue and SIxty-slxtl

I he strikers sent messengers to warn mom
burs of the executive committee to keep on
of thu way. From tills It wns evident tha
ordering another tie-up was under consldera
lion , nml it was desired tliat.oflidal heads o
the organization should take no open part litho
the proceedings nnd tints avoid In

that the next district meeting of the boart

Their First Wedded Sunday.
IKTU : I'AUK , Mil. , Juno 0. Tlio iireslilont's
first Sunday on the crest of Uic Allcjhcnlcs
dawned blight and clear. Colonel Lnmont
and wlfo arrived on the early train frqm
Washington , nnd were driven at once to the
executive cottage , where they will bo anar-
tcrcd during thulr stay. Dreakfast was taken
shortly nftor 9 o'clock , nnd about ixu hour
later tlio party started for Oakland , six miles
olT. Tim pally consisted of tlio president
and Mrs. Cleveland , Mr. nnd Mrs. Lament ,
ox-Senator nnd Mrs. Davis and two children ,
nnd John W. Davis , President Oiirrctt's lirst
assistant. The quaint mountain village ot
Oakland was nllvo with nooplu who canio
Iroin .miles around to "oalcli a gllmpsej
of the president and his wile. ' The
pretty little tinirett memorial church wns the
center of attraction , and groups of , rustics attired -
tired In Sunday raiment 'stood around thn
door. lusldo thqrc were as many people as
could be accommodated. The chancel was
decorated with flowers , and an extra choir
was In attendance. At 11 o'clock the presi
dential party entered , and were ushered Into
thu pews reserved for them on the right of
the pulpit. As they were sealed the choir
sail ) , ' "Flee as n Hint to Yon Mountain. " The
pastor , Huv. Dr. Foulk , cave out
tliu live hundred nml fortieth hymn.
"Behold What Condescending Love,1' '
and after it was sung , proceeded
tobiptlze the Infant daughter ot Captain
Isaae Ktngkcndnll , which was , by a singular
coincidence , named Francis , though not in
tended as a compliment to Mrs ; Cleveland.
The little girl bore herself with becoming
dignity , and did not oncu make a.sound.
Dr. Kaulk read thi ! fifteenth chapter tif the
first Kplstlo to Corintlilans , after which he
prayed at length , asklni ; thu divine blessing
for all present , espceially tlio piesidcnt and
his bride. The sixty-fourth hymn was
then sung , tifter which a collection
was taken up , to which Mr. Cleveland
contributed a crisp new S5 note.
The sermon was preached by Dr. Fouck.
who tdok as his text the first and second
verses of the fittcenth chanter ot St. Paul's
Fret Knlstlu to thu Corinthians : "Brethren.
I declare unto you the gospel which I
preached unto von , which also yo have re
ceived , and wherein ye stnml ; by wlilcli also
ye are saved , It' ye keep In memory what I
preached unto youunless yo have believed in
vain. " Tlio discourse was an oithodox argu
ment as to tlio death and resurrection of
Christ , nnd lasted n little over half an hour.
The president and his party wcro the lirst to
leave the church. They at. once entered
their carriages nnd were driven to tlio cottage
of Senator JJavis , where they dined. After
lunch the president aim Ills wife walked over
to the next cottage , which is occupied by
Major N. S. Hill , purchasing agent of the
Ualtlmoro & Ohio company. Ho introduced
Mrs. Cleveland to Mr. and Mrs. Hill , and ,
after being joined by Colonel and Mrs. Lament -
mont , the entire party walked back through
the lields back of the cottage and spent over
an hour gathering wild llowers , with which
the ladies filled their arms. It is understood
that the president and Colonel Lament will
have n general tronting expedition tomorrow
row , and that the colonel will return to
Washington by Tuesday morning. The date
of the mesidenfs return lias not yet been an
Saturday Sauntcrinsn.
Dinn : PAHIC , Mil. , Juno 5. The third day
of tlio presidential honeymoon could not bo
more beautiful. The sun shines warmly , its
heat tempered by a delightful breeze , which
blows over the mountain. Quiet reigned supreme
premo in the neighborhood of the executive
mansion until nearly 0 o'clock , when the tireless -
loss paciiiE to and tro of the detectives was
broken by the appearance on the
poitico of the president lie strolled
down to where the ollicers were standing
and talked pleasantly with them for a lew
moments. Breakfast was brought over from
the hotel shortly after 0 o'clock. About 11
o'clock , ex-Senator Davis and wife called at
'the cottage and in n few moment the presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland were driven off.
The president was attired in a fishing suit.
Hods nnd lines were visible and the party
was evidently going on a fishing expedition.
After an early dinner at the cottage ot ex-
Senator Davis , a party was made up for the
purpose of visiting Deep Crook , a favorite
Tubing ground four or live miles from here.
Tlio party , consisting of the president and
Mrs. Cleveland and Mr. and Mrs. Davis set
out in the president's landau. Tliodrlvowas
through the most charming portion of the
country and was greatly enjoyed. They re.
turned homo about half past seven and Mr.
Cleveland showed over a dozen handsome
trout In evidence oi his skill as an angler.
Mrs. Cleveland anil MM. Davis tried their
hands at lUhng , but , though bites were nu
merous , neither succeeded in landing a trout.
The president was very much pleased with
his luck and wlITpay the .spot another visit
befmo ho leaves for Washington. Ho imsde
cided to remain hero four or live days longer.
Tlio cottage waa free from visitors to-niirlit
and at n reasonably early hoiir the lights
were extinguished.

Saturday morning about three o'clock ,
as one of tlio east bound trains on the
Missouri Pacilic was crossing the last span
of the bridge of that road over the Plattc
river , one of the cars became derailed
tearing the span and then falling into the
river. It wns followed by two others
which wcro heavily laden. The track
for a considerable distance on the north
bank of the river was destroyed , but
gangs of men and material wejo sent , to
repair it at an early hour , Tlm morning
passenger from this point at lUill ) o'clock
was compelled to go around by way o 1
flho H , & M.'to LuitTsvillo.
Tjho breaking down was caused by the
connecting rod of thu drivers of the en
gine. 803. occoming detached from one
of tlio latter and the piston. It flow
backward , destroying the engineer's side
of ( he cab , throwing him out into the
tender and giving mm but a narrow
'oscapo from death. Tlio train proceeded
slowly to'Maxwell , where the engineer.
Lambert with his. engine , was retired
for repairs ,
Train No.11 on the Union Pacific ,
which meets the overland at Valley and

vusterdav afternoon about 1:30 : o'clock.
-The engine , tender and baggage and
mail ears rolled down a steep embank
ment and were badly used up. The lire-
man and engineer saved themselves by
jumping. Thu passenger cars remained
on the tniok , which was considerably
torn. up. Thu accident was occasioned
by a broken rail.
Train No. ! on the Union Pacific which
reaches hero in the afternoon wns do-
tallied at Ogden four hours in waiting
for the Denver & Rio Grande. In on-
doayoring to make up for lost time , the
engine broke down when about te.u miles
this side of North Platte. This necessitated
another delay of about an hour. To ac
commodate the local trafllc a special was
put on at Grand Island which canio in
yesterday afternoon on limo. ,
Doug Pattou , an engineer on the Oma
ha & Republican Valley division of the
Union Pacific , met with a peculiar acci
dent on tlio in-coming run yesterday
morning. Ho was pounding along at the
rate of M ) miles an hour just this side of
Valparaiso whim hu noticed that one of
thu burrs on the left Hank of the engine
had become loosened and was about to
drop oh" . Ho stepped out on the foot
board and was fastening tlio nut when
the wrench ho was using caught in the
wheel and was knocKcd out of his hand
carrying the engineer's right thumb with
it , Remembering how narrowly hu es
caped being thrown from the engine
Doug gazes wistfully at his maimed hand
antl murmurs , "It's bad but it might have
been worse. "
Last niglil , about 10 o'clock a special

sccni ! of the accident , while earlier in the
afternoon an engine-was dispatched from

Important Grading ImiiroyrinentH.
Some weeks ngo tlio city council re
ferred a great number of petitions from
property holders asking lor the grading
of streets in dilVcrent portions of the city
to tliu city engineer with instructions to
draft an estimate of the cost of the de
sired work. Mr. Rosewater has com
pleted h'jj work ami mudu a report to the
council committee at their meeting on
Saturday evening. The report shows
that tlio property holders Imvo asked forever
over a million yards of grading which
would cost about fiZO.lWO of wliic.h
amount $110,000 would have to bo paid
by thu city , thu other half being assumed
by the property holduro. The committee
are of the opinion that this is fully UO per
cent moru work than can bo
attempted by the city at Ihls
time. . An ordinance will bo
reported to thu council at the meeting on
Tuesday night and will bo tollowcd by
another next week making provision fet
the grading of a largo number of street *
at an estimated cost of $ MOP03. ' 1 he
principal streets to bo included Iu this
provision are podge , Douglas , Saunders ,
Hamilton , Jeu"er. < on , Sixteenth , Jackson ,
Lcnvotiworth ami connecting streets
about tliirtv in all. The demand for the
grading of tlnwo streets is simply impera
tive and is umdo to nUbrd room for the
improvements that are contracted for
anil contemplated on the streets which
are named in the ordinances. Citv Kn-
g'uicer Koscwatur stales that the grnillnu
13 much needed on all of thirslreots named
in the numerous petitions but that the
city is so limited in its resources that
it can not attempt the work at
present. The delay in ordering the
work is necessitated by tlm doubt that ex
ists in the minds of the council as to
what thu assessed valuation of the city
will be for the coming year. Unless the
valuation is raised to a good iiguro the
clly can not well attempt any further
grading improvements than will bo pro
vided for in the ordinances to bo pre
sented at thn tunning meeting to-morrow
night and next week. Mr. Hosuwatcr
states that an ell'nrt will bo made to have
the work le.t at once ns in many portions
of the city important contemplated im
provements are being delayed because
the streets are not in a condition to al
low the work to proceed. The grading
cannot be done any too rapidly.
A SpottinMnn Tells How lie Won
"Lucky about queer wagers" said a
sporting man Iho other night , "I shall
never forgot the time I won $1000 on a
fast hog. Have 1 over told youthostory ? "
His auditors shook their heads and
asked for the tale which lie told as fol
lows : "It wns iu the summer of 1878 , if I
recollect rightly , I hail buon play
ing a pretty Bleep game in
Chicago that winter nnd spring
and when June came , my not over-strong
systum was pretty nearly broken down.
Acting on the ad vice of a medical friund ,
I took a jaunt to a little country town in
Iowa , hoping thai a month's sojourn thorn
might brace mo up for the fall and winter
campaign. But to tell you about the race.
The town hud a pretty good course , and
some of the boys there owned some
really good tlycrs.of which they were very
proud. Ono of them , whose name I
needn't mention , possessed a mare upon
whoso Ilcetness ho particularly prilled
himself. Talking with him in a banter
ing way one day , I offered to produce a
hog which could beat his animal
in a UOO-yard running race. Ho
became angry , when I insisted upon thu
matter. 'I'll tell you what I'll do , ' I said
to him jocosely ; 'I'll ' bet you any amount
of monuy you may namu that mv pig can
win the race. Do you take nicy * The
boys standing around grew interested ,
and commenced to press around. Tlie
other man , whose face by this time was
livid with rage , roared 'I'll ' bet you
$1,000. '
This rather staggered me , but as I had
the money I wasn't to bo hluHed. I put
it ui ) . Iho articles of agreement wuiu
quickly drawn up ami signed.
"Well , to cut a long story short , T got
hold of ouu of thuso long , lank , hungry
scrub porkers and put him at once into
training. My method was to feed him
a bushel of corn ouce a day. The pig
would bo stationed at one end of a
straight ! ! 00-yard lane , and over the line at
the other cud , tliu corn would bo dumped
upon a given signal. The moment the
corn was dumped , the pig was freed and
away he would scoot for Hie other end.
Tins kind of1 practice was kept up for
one month , nnd at the end of this time
tlie hungry hog could make tlm distance
in a waj' thai would put "Maud S" to
shame. The day of the race came , and
every man , woman and child for miles
around was on hand to witness it. The
race was run on the boy's own ground ,
according to agreement. The porcine
racer was more ) than unusually hungry
that day. Ho had became so accustomed
to lindin < r his half bushel of corn at thu
other end of tlio Jane that when iiu was
released , upon tliu word 'Ho ! ' hu shot off
like a llat-h. Hu darted under tin ; horse's
logs , and before thnt animal and his rider
could recover themselves , was at the
other end. Hu didn't got his corn , but I
did gel the § 1,000. 1 left town the next
day. "
The Sunday Game.
Yesterday's game between the Lead-
villes nnd Iho Union Pacifies was onu of
Iho poorest ever played on Umaha
grounds. It was a contest in which heavy
slugging , many errors antl general rotten
work , with an occasional good play , were
the features. The Union Pacifies had no
pitcher , and consequently could not hold
down the Leatlvilliaus , who are of
mighty prowess witli tlie willow. Sales-
bury pitched onu inning , and upon liis
nnn giving out hu was succeeded by
Jtockwcli , who met with n similar mis
fortune after two innings' ' work. Melvol-
voy then stepped into the breach , but
nftor two or three innings liis arm like
wise failed him. Ho then linishuil the
game by simply tossing the bail to the
batsmou. The resulting score was 10 to
11 , in favor of tlio Luaelvillu team.

To Secure Possession of the Omntift
SnvliiRS Hank Property.
It has already been published in Iho
BIB : that Fred Amos , of the directory of
tlio Union I'aciHc , hail purchased qulto
an amount of property in this city. Ono
of his purchases comprises tlio fifty-
two feet immediately west of tlio Omaha
Savings bank on the southwest corner of
Thirteenth and Doughs streets. Mr.
Ames proposes to erect upon this ono of
the finest buildings over built in Om.ihn ,
but has expressed also n willingness to
purchase the ground nnd building where
thu savings bank now does business. K
hu shonlit bo able to secure that , hn
would bo inspired lo put up a building In
ke"ping with thu location and the present
and prospective advancement of tlio city.
Ho has offered no price for the property
but has expressed a willingness to hear
the value placetl upon it by the owners.
Accordingly , a meeting of the directors
of the bank will bo held to-day to doeido
whether or not they will jiart with their
building and ground. The building at
present brings but a poor rot\jru \ upon
the value of thu property , and the lit-
cotuu cannot be increased unless a now
structure bo erected or thu present ono
so modified as to enable it to compote
with better equipped structures. It is
understood that a number e > f thu directors
arc in favor of selling tlm place and rent
ing from Mr. Ames , while it is known
that some arc opposed to the scheme. .
