The Slomnti Case.
Tcstcnlny Mr. Samuel Slonmn , the gen
tleman who hits liccn acting as rccoivor
for Slonmn Iro3. ! , stepped down and out ,
giviving way to Ins successors , Messrs.

were appointed Kslerday afternoon by
Judge Dundy. Yesterday ! gontlmen

This morning Messrs. J. M. Wool-
worth'I'lnirston & Hull , and Oroll' &
Montgomery , attorneys for Herman
Fcehlicimer. Samuel Klotnun. Meyer
Hillman , Samuel Knl/ and H. V. 1'aige ,
tiled an answer to the cross-bill of the
Chicago creditors , as lilud by Messrs.
Hartletr. Webster and U'akely a day or so
ago. This answer enters ti general
denial to the statements con
tained in the crossbill of
the creditors in "the city on the lake. "
The defendants deny thai they have en
tered into a conspiracy to defraud the
other creditors , but aver that the mort
gages to them given represent security
for actual indebtedness , to which they
are by law entitled. They deny that
these mortgages were given to shield
crookedness of any manner or dcscrin-
The answer further denies that any
property has been disposed of in such a
way , or at such prices , as to injure the
interests of the linn or the creditors.
Furthermore , it is denied that Receiver
Sloman has refused to show up to the
creditors the goods which are stored in
tlie establishment , or that the
firm had made ' a practice
at any time before or since the failure of
buying needs in such enormously large
quantities or with such intent to defraud
eastern linns , as is charged by the plaint-
Ifl's. The document in fact enters a
sweeping denial to all the material alle
gations of the plaintiffs , anil is a compre
hensive one of some ten pages
It should bo noted that Mr Sloman's
retirement from the olltao of receiver
was in accordance with his own wishes ,
and was olleded upon his own motion in
the United States court. Mr. Sloman has
acted in the matter to the best of his
ability , and with a conscientious idea of
his duties. The allldavits against him ,
filed in the United States court , have
been withdrawn.

A Justice Case IlcvcnlH n Flagrant
Instance or Usury.
Yesterdayafternoon | Justice Hclsley
commenced the hearingofjacase whicghis
decidedly interesting as illustrating the
Shyloek methods practiced by some of
the money sharks who do business in this
city. The title of the suit is Uced & Co.
vs. Patrick F. Tarpy , and the history
thereof is in brief tins : Some sixteen
months ago Tarpy , who is a poor man
with a largo family to support , became
hard pressed for money and borrowed
$180.7(5 ( from Rood & Co. Ho gave a
mortgage .on nearly everything ho had to
secure the lirm , .including nearly
all his household goods , and n horse ,
wagon and harness. Since that time ho
has , for all but three months , paid inter
est nt the rate of about $7 a month. This
would make the amount lie paid to them
about $05. Notwithstanding this , liis
indebtedness to the lirm of money loaners
has actually increased , for they now
hold his note for $160 , or some $30 moro
than he originally borrowed.
Some few weeks ago he sold the horse
and wagon which ho hail mortgaged ,
after lirbt obtaining the consent ot Keoil
oi Co. thereto. With a part of the proceeds -
coeds of the fettle ho bought a cow , upon
which the money loaners demanded that
he ttivo them a mortgage. This he refused
to do , and they at once hail Him arrested
and brought before Justice Helsley on a
criminal charge of selling mortgaged
property. Justice. Holsley released Tarpy
on his own recognisance to appear for
trial yesterday. This greatly angered
the complainants , who urged that Tarpy
ought to bo released on nothing short of
$1,000. The case upon trial will doubt
less dovoloi ) some racy and interesting
features. Tarpy's lawyers , Simeral < &
Rediek , say that they will push the case
for all there is in it , and will commence
actions against Heed & Co. for usury and
malicious prosecution.

OMAHA , July 3 , 1880T.o tue. Editor :
In to-day's Herald appears an editorial
entitled , "Matters to Think Over. " U

gays that Marshal C'uiumings escaped in-

A Itnld
Ono of the boldest robberies imagina
ble was reported at police headquarters
yesterday. The victim thereof was
Dr. ( ) . S. Wood , who resides at 2130
Davenport street. Uurglars broke Into
his hou o Tlinrsda.C and stole a pan1 of
pants containing about sJlOO , a bunch of
keys and n pocket case of medical instru
ments , and numerous other smaller arti
cles. Strange tosav the vr t which lmii < i

trance through onu of the front parlor
windows , bringing a lighted lamp from
the lower hall up to the sleeping room In
Dr. Wood was , where it was toiind still
burning yesterday. Dr. Wood thinks
that the robbers will probably throw the
surgical instruments away , and any ono
finding them will confer a favor on him
by returning the snmo to his ollicc on
Capitol avenue.
Army Notes.
Yesterday In pursuance of the telegram
from the war department as noted in
Thursday's ' MEG , the number of messen
gers in the army headquarters was re
duced from four to two. Sergeant Hayes
is transferred to Company E , Second in
fantry , and Sergeant Clark , at his own
request , is discharged , and will procure
employment in this city. Sergeants Delaney -
laney and Hose , the two old "stand-bys"
of the service , are retained. As the cler
ical force was already-short one man , it
was not found necessary to reduce it.
It is quite evident there wijl be some
gooil shooting done at the rillo contest
this year. Captain Unssell , of Fort lUis-
sell , writes that the figure of merit of his
company is over ono hundred , and Gen
eral Wlieaton , of the Second infantry ,
coming to this department , says thai
some Of his company have figures of
merit of 110.
Postmaster Quarterly Kcports.
Yesterday Postmaster Coutant and
his assistant , James Woodward , exam
ined the reports made to them of money
balances by the different postmasters
throughout the state. Each report is
contained in a largo envelope and ac
companied by a blank , showing the
amount of paper money and coin for
warded in satisfaction of the same. Of
these balances not less that 800 will be
received by Mr. Coutant before the end
of the month. They arc generally full of
discrepancies , and in some instances
money is forwarded and there is noth
ing accompanying to show where it
came from or by whom it was sent.
A Flnlandor Rolibert.
F. Oscar Julin , a young Finlander , ar
rived in town yesterday from his
native land with the story that , before he
had been twenty-four hours on the train
out of New York , ho felt'tired , and
sleepy , and , not suspecting , anything ,
dropped asleep. When ho awoke ho
found that his pocket book and wallet
had disappeared. It contained $32 , all
the money he possessed , to bring him to
Carbon , Wyoming. His ticket van out
here leaving him perfectly helpless. He
told his story to the watchman at the
Union Pacific dcuot and was by him
taken the the headquarters , where his
case was considered by the officials.

rj3S 3J No Politics in It.
Mr. Coutant , postmaster , was spoken
yesterday about the alegcdl removal of
Mr. E. J. Edwards , the ex-clerk of the
general delivery'window , because of his
being a republican , llo denied the alle
gation that the removal had been made
on partisan grounds. The man Mole ,
who succeeded him , was also a republi
can , and the reason assigned for his ap
pointment was that ho was an old cm-
pioyu of the postoHiee nnd had boon ono
of the best clerks in the service at this
5GOacres land in Tliayor county , Neb. ,

This is pre-eminently the season of the
year for tlio enjoyment of equine pleas
ures. There is no city of its size in
America , probably , whore the ownership
and enjoyment of liorxvilesh is as general
as in Omaha. A drive on Sixtpnnth
street ( Sherman avenue ) any line evening
would convince the most skeptical indi
vidual of this fact. Everybody who can
afford it , and manv who cannot , owns n
rig of some sort. It may bo nothing but
a yellow two-wheeled cart attached to an
equine skeleton , or it may be a handsome
two-horse barouche , with all the hand
some incidentals of equipage which goto
make up a stylish "rig , " but It is owned
by the driver and is a source nf a deal
ot enjoyment to him and his family ,
large or small.
The cost of keeping a horse and car
riage in Oinahu is not large. The fact
that t there arc so many beautiful drives
in and about Omaha has contributed
largely 1 : to the growth of this passion for
owning liorsollesh. Who would not have
the t means to enjoy the invigorating ef
fects of a spin in the cool evening air ,
when such means are at hand niton a
I rilling cost ? Horses can bo kept
amazingly cheap in Omaha. It is a very
tony livery stabli indeed which charges
over ? 20 n month for boarding a horse.
First class board can be obtained for $18
a month , and in some stables fair board at
$15 a month. This includes not only care
of the horse , but also daily washing of
the buggy and harness and hitching up
for the customer at all times. To keep a
saddle horse requires less , from $10 to
SlUn ! j month. Ol course , the owner of
the t ; animal , if fancy or a shallow purse
sII dictates , can keep the horse at a much
k-ss expense , say not more than $5 or $7
amenta. The cost is the same whether
the i : animal is a sfoU horse or a § 1.000 nag ,
for however much diflerenco there may be
iitl the value and capabilities of horses ,
there is very little in the cubic capacity
of their stomachs. And so it happens
that ; there are a largo number of
horses in Omaha , and an equally large
number of equipages , handsome and
otherwise , .
Morth Sixteenth street is a good point for
the observation of these vehiclar outlits.
The 1 mo.-t common rig , of course , is the
plain buggy attached to a single horse ,
or the two-horse double-seated carriage.
Some of these rijjs arc strikingly hand
some ' , and worthy of extended mention
did space permit. Of stylish family barouches
rouches or carriage ? then1 are any num
ber in Omaha , and dozens of them may
be seenout , any line evening containing
the business man and his family.
The Shcllicld dog cart is becoming
quite popular in Oinitha. These two-
wheeled arrangements are made to hold
only two people. The most stylish of
these have heavy wheels , Iiiuli seats and
are painted a resplendent black , with
heavy lanterns on cither side of
the scat. They arc sometimes
known as Stanhope gigs , because
that mine is English , you know.
Some of these outlits cost : ts high as if-HX )
or $ .100. From these prices'you can range
as low as $10 , which amount will pur
chase a small Perry cart , used principally
by children. Another very stylish gig or
two wheeled cart is the Whitecliapof. of
which there are several in Omaha. It is
a trille heavier than the Stanhope , with a
seat considerably higheu.
The Ellesmorp is n , pretty cart
adapted especially for the use
of Indies , ft is low , with a turn down
seat behind for a footman or gentleman
guest. They are quite expensive , and
there are but one or two of them in
The plneton , single and double seated ,
is a vehicle which is quite popular in
Omaha , especially among the ladies who
wish to take a quiet evening drive with
their children or friends , and who care
not for style as much as they do for com
fort. The " ' "
low "basket phiu'ton" is espe
cially popular among tlio members of the
gentler sex. Something akin to these
vehicles is the "Gladstone , " an old fash
ioned basket chaise , with two opposite
seats , and one seat behind for a footman
or tifth party. There is , so far as known ,
but one of these in the city.
In the long procession of vehicles
which may be seen on 11113' of the thor
oughfares of the city , ono cannot fail to
notice the landau. It is nn open carriage ,
capable of seating four persons , vis-a-vis.
These arc especially used by the sports of
the city , inalo and female , who arc
out for a good time and don't care who
knows it. Visitors who want easy
and pleasant locomotion on a
sightseeing tour through tlio city patron
ize this lorin of vehicle. There are
very few private landaus in the city , be
cause a ride in one of them savors too
much of ostentatiousncss. Passing by the
closed carriages sometimes vulgarly
known as "hacks , " of which tlioro are a
large number in Omaha , both in public
and private use and the hundred other
forms of vehicles , ono cannot fail to no
tice the cab. It was a little
moro than ono year ago when
this strange two-wheeled institution wns
introduced into Omalia. It , too , was
"quite English , you know , " caught on
quickly , and has since grown immensely
popular in favor , Tliu eonpo. a single
horse , closcd.carriatro , capable of seating
two. or at a pinch , three persons , was in- *
troduccd a month or two later , and is
almost as popular as the cab. There are
quite a number of elegant private coupes
in the city.
An article of Mils character would bo
incomplete without n reference to the
real estate "bnckbonrds" which have in
tlio past year or so become a feature of
the hurrying caravan of vehicles in the
streets of Omaha. One of these buck-
hoards is capable of pealing two persons ,
the agent unit his victim the intending
purchaser and is really a neat though
hardly a stylish rig. Oiioontorprisingreal
estate agent hero ownsand runs no less
than ton of thesobuckboards , ono or two
of them attached to licet and blooded
Ily way of conclusion unU as a matter
of interest to its renders , the KKR pre
sents the cost of an equine' establishment
such as Iho Omaha gentleman of aver
age wealth and table ought to be supposed
to set up and maintain ; He ought to have
nt least :
One pair carriage horses 51,000
One roadster for buggy unit cart. . . . . . . . SOO
Ouo Lniulau , . . . 1,000
One two seated canlago bOO

Ono "Hhellielil" ! 0 n
Harness estimate ' * < >
llon > ( ) clothing anil stable llitings 500
Uoufliinnn'soutlit JOO
S4.TOO .
If to this bo added a pony and cart for
the children and a handsome sleigh
for winter , it will bo seen that n lirst-class
establishment can not tbo sit up for less
than $5,003. That there are several in
Omaha valued at thia figure or higher ,
there is no question. There are n num
ber of costly barns in this city , too- , three
ot which are estimated to have cost $5,000 ,
each. ; .

How n Beardless Young Man Undo a Living
iu Swnnstou ,
Persecutions eCu HntcliciMntrlinoqi
nlly Inclined Thoi-oiiKlily Up In
All Itrnnolics of Housework
nml Initially Arrested.
A young man who , under various
aliases , has figured in several
western cities of late , and who has just
served a term in the Hriiti-wcll in
Chicago on conviction of theft , related a
few of his adventures here last night ,
says a Milwaukee corresspondimt. He
now calls himself Henry Jackson , nnd
at lirst glance ho might bo taken for a
young man who , perhaps , was old
enough to vote. A closer scrutiny , how
ever , would convince the observer that
l.e was not much under . ' 30. His slight
lignro , small hands and feet , smooth faoe
and fair complexion , gave him an at )
pearancc of youth , which was belied by
the few wrinkles on his forehead aim
about his eyes.
"When 1 came west six years ago , " ho
said , "I stopped in .Milwaukee for u time
and looked for work. I knew nobody ,
and the kind of employment that I
thought myself lilted for was not open to
me. As n\y \ necessities became greater ,
1 sought work as a laborer , but. owing to
my sl/e , 1 was either refused l > y bosses
in search of men , or as suon as they could
( hid a heavier man Ihey laid me oil1. I
was about discouraged when a cheap
restaurant here , wheie I had boarded ,
lost one of its waiters , and I applied
for and got the job. 1 did not like the
business , but ns it promised to keep body
and soul together through Iho winter , I
concluded to keep at It. At tlio end of a
mouth the owner of the place sold out
and I lost my job. After looking around
a little and sceng no prospect ot getting
work here , I roncludi'il to go to Chicago
and try. I could at least get a job there as
a waiter , 1 thniiirht , and to that I bent my
energies. At the end of a week I found
myself installed in a beer hall and rest
aurant at half a dollar a day. While
there 1 noticed that it was comparatively
easy to get men , but that steady and ef-
licient girls for the kitchen were scarce.
Ono day I read an article in the Taper
about the scarcity of house servants and
explaining hqw good girls could easily
pot 9,1) a week and a comfortable home.
That set me to thinking , and in the
course of a short time I had decided to
try my luck as a girl. I always had a
smooth face , and 1 know that I could
get myself'up so as to look as well as the
average house servant. One of the girls
at the restaurant was a friend of mine ,
and between us the job was lived up. 1
loft the restaurant one night in woman's
clothes , and as a man i was never seen
there again.
"The next day. with a list of people
who were advcrlisjng tor girls , 1 started
out. As Wisconsin servant trirls are at
a premium in Chicago , 1 told' everybody
that I was the daughter of a farmer liv
ing near Milwaukee. Three or four la
dies did not want me because I could not
say that I was a good cook. One said
she liked my looks and wanted me to
cull again the next day. Toward even
ing I called at a house where the lady
informed me that she had got a girl , hut
that she had a friend living in Swanston ,
. ,
a suburban town , who wanted one , and
that if i would call again in the evening
I could see her. As she held out a pros
pect of good pay I thought I woxld try
itni any way , and so in the evening 1 put in
an appearance. Tlio Swanston lady was
thercrwaitiiifj for me , and the upshot of
ilWi was that I was hired out to her for $0 a
week , with half a day oil' each week. I
was ; to do general housework and she
volunteered to teach me things that 1 did
not know. The next day I moved out
there anil was duly installed as maid of
all work. There was another girl in the
house , but as she was a nurse 1 did not
see much ol her.
pNow , I know considerable about cook
ing and housework or i never should
have : thought of trying it. At home I had
ns a boy helped m ymothor a great dual , ;
and there were plenty of things that 1
could do as well as anybody. The lady
appeared ' to like my style , and as she
was : an experienced housekeeper she was
m only willing but able to give me'such
in as 1 needed. I swept , cooked
and washed and ironed , and as soon ns I
got well hcitled in my place I came to the
conclusion that it was a great deal better
than starving as u man. I had just made
up 1 my mind that the girls who refuse to
dc housework and prefer to Mrugglo
along in shops and stores in the cities
were making fools of themselves , when
ono day , after I had been at my place
about three months , the butcher boy , a
lubberly fellow who used to make him
self quite fresh around the housegrabbed
sem whim I was ofl'my guard and planted
kiss i on my mouth. I came within an
ace of planting my list in his nose ,
but it suddenly occurred to mo
that that was what servant
girls > hud to expect , and I
could fool my checks burning with the
confusion which came upon. me. Then
twitted mo about blushing , and finally
wound up by inviting mo to go sleighing ,
which ! 1 iliially agreed to do. From that
time on the butcher and I were great
friends. J tried to keep the cuss at arms'
loiiKth : , but the moro distant and digni-
lied 1 became the moro ho seemed to
think of mo. Finally ho wanted me to
inarrv him , and I put him oh"on the plea
that 1 had promised my mother on her
death-bed that I would not marry until
nl my Hltlo brothers and sisters had be
come able to support thumsclves. llo
became so much of a nuisance nl length
that I had to leave that place , much
against my will , and llnd another iu the
lly Hint time 1 was reasonably compe
tent in all branches of housework , nml I
had no ( rouble in getting work in Chi MS
cago. I found thu conditions the sumo
they had boon. While thorn worn
plenty 1 of men out of work and plenty of
women who were trying to got work at
starvation t : wages down town it was as
easy : as rolling oil'a log to got good situ
ations ns house horvants. 1 think if I
Jind seen any chance of gettiuz some
thing to do as a man , I would hnvo loft
olVmy ( ire.'ses. but I didn't and I then
pot out with the- idea that 1 would try lo
save enough money to make the neces
sary deposit and become a . trcet cir :
conductor. My now place was harder
than the o'd ' ono , but I got along all
right , nnd stayed there for two years ,
when the family broke up. .My acquain
tances were nearly all amuiurtho girls , '
and the only way 1 could lind out how
the ! labor market was was by asking
market men what bhow tlioro was for a \o
brother of mino. 1 got a job in this way
? Iho driver of a delivery wagon for a
grocer , and for a year or so I dressed ns
man , but as another chap Imally cut
under ii.o in wages and secured tlio place
became disgusted with my snx , and
after looking in vain for work , donned
my dresses again and trot a place as cook
a big family where they had a house
full o ? sorva'nts I stayed tlioro a good
while , and might have been there yet ,
only ono of Iho girls got mad at me , and ,
communicating her suspicions lo Iho
lady , the latter cornered mo and inado
mo admit that I was not a girl. llicii.
got even with im- , shy had mo arrested
for stealing , and the worst of it was shn
swore so itiflly against me that she con
victed me. . ,
"I'm ' just out of that tempo , and I
don't think 1 shall try the servant irlrl
sphpnie again. SlHI , I am of the opinion
that it is a great opening .for young men
who cnn'l make their Ihing in any other
way. If .the girb thcmsnlves wo't\ld \ TFv
to g"M worn lit hard labor for n wLI/rS / niul
find themselves thrown out every time
that a bigger follow i-amc along , tiny
would s-oon discover Iho advantage of
having n bed to go to and something to
eat , rain or shine. "
