Alt ARtotimllnn ttovclntlnn.
Last WcilnoMlny ovcnint ; , .July Ttli , It
/ntiy bo remembered , Ilio marring * ; of 11.
L. U'noldrldiro , tlio cvcur driver and
licro of the robber-killing sensation of
last fallwns recorded in tlio local papers ,
The happy bride was Miss Pauline Paul-
sen , tin- daughter of . ) . T. Paulson , the
well-known real estate and insurance
man. The ceremony was performed by
.Justice Ilultlov. and after the marriage
an informal reception was held , at which
everything went merrily , and the happy
bride and groom received the congratula
tions ot numerous friends. Mr.
Paulson determined to be liberal
in all things , and gave his
8oii'inliiw a half interest in the Hock
.Springs dairy , putting him in pnrtnnr ,
ship with his two sous. It is concerning
tliiinnnrrhure , which was so happily con-
humiliated that a .sensation of rather as
tounding proportions was unearthed by
n reporter for the Ur.n to-day.
A few days ago a city ollicial received
from Shiiriirilickmtin , of Marsh all , Mo.
a letter asking if it was really true that
Wooldridge was married. The writer
went on to say that AVooldridgo
was a hard character , and bore a tough
name in the country around Marshall ,
Mo. , and stated furthermore that he
was a negro and had a negro wife
living in Missouri. The letter was at
once . shown to Air. Paulson , the father ,
who was very naturally astounded , and
overwhelmed. He telegraphed at once
for corroborative particulars , and re
ceived such as to satibfy him that Sheriff'
Jlicknmn's story was true that Wool-
drldge , the hero street car driver , and
Wooldridge , the negro tough , are one
and the same man. Mr. Paulson placed
the matter in the hands of Marshal Cum-
mlngs and intrusted him to telegraph
Iliekman to come at once and arrest
Wooldridge , upon proper identification ,
and take him back to Marshall on a charge
of bigamy. Iliekman. was wired to that
cflcct and a telegram was received from
him slating that he had left for Omaha
Wednesday night upon the
father's assuring himself the
terrible news was true , | hc
determined toj break the matter
to his daughter. Ho went out to the
dairy and explaining to Wooldridgo and
the other occupants of the house that
Mrs. WooUlrid ro's mother was very ill ,
took lier to his home on Twenty-first ami
Lake streets. There the news was broken
to the unfortunate girl. ' riho seemed
dazed and unable to comprehend the
tr nth at first , but when the true state o
affairs finally dawned upon her , gave
way to u terrible agony of grief , which
lasted the whole night 'Jong. Yesterday
morning she was still weak and dazed ,
ml it Is evident that her nervous system
has received a severe shock.
Wooldridgo is still blissfully unaware
of the situation and thinks ( lint his wife
is by her sick mother's bedside. Mr.
1'nulsen has left orders at the house that
if he should call to see his wife eh shall
be r-scoircd cordially and as though noth
ing had happened. The young man did
probably not know the true state of af
fairs until ho read last evening's BEE.
A friend of tlio family in talkng over
the matter with a reporter
yesterday afternoon said , "I toll
you this tiling comes ' wit
crushing force not only upon tlio unfortu
nate wife but upon Mr. and Mrs ]
Paulson and tlio whole ftunily as well.
They thought a good deal of AVooldridgo ,
and always believed him to bo a square ,
upright young man. The young wife is
nearly heartbroken and is almost in
clined to disbelieve tlio stories about her
Inlsband. How long had Wooldridge
known the yonng lady ? A little over
three months. He came to Her father
nnd asked for the privilege of being al
lowed to visit his daughter. Mr. Paulsen
felt a slight misgiving , but consented. A
few weeks ago Wooldridgo asked
for the hand of liis daughter in marriage.
Ml' . Paulson hesitated for a long tiiho ,
but finally said that if his daughter so de
sired ho would not withhold Ins consent.
It is my opinion Wooldrigo is a scoun
drel who ought to bo prosecuted to the
full extent of the law. "
Wooldridgo will bo remembered as the
street car drjvcr who shot Walter
Ruckel , the highwayman , in October
last. A great lioo-doo was made over
him at the time , and fora while he was
the hero. Since then ho has nearly
dropped out of public attention. His ap-
puaranco is decidedly that of a mulatto ,
as is also his accent. The Paulson family
is of the bosl German society hero , and is
certainly entitled to and will receive- the
sympathy of a largo circle of friends in
this bad aU'air.
HI ; wn.u NOT BE AJinnsrKD.
11. W. liiqkman , sheriff of Saline
county , Missouri , arrived in tlio city last
nlulit in response to a telegram from Mr.
Paulsen asking him to come hero and
identify Wooldridge. He at ouco drove
to Mr. Paulson's house with Marshal
Cumnilngs. HetoldMr. Paulson that thuro
could bo no question as Jo Wooldridgo's
identity. Ho had him employed ns
janitor around tlio court house for eight
months , ' During Hint time ho never
associated with any but negroes ami
never claimed to be anything but a negro ,
About a year and a half ago ho was
married to a colored woman and lived
With her until ho came to Omaha. J ast
winter ho commenced suit against her
for a divorce , The case was called
up ubout three weeks ago , when
AVooldridgo was in Missouri , and ills-
Wished , When AVooldridgo visited Mis
souri soon after ho killed his man in this
city , he requested the nowr.papcr reporters
by whom ho was interviewed to say
nothing about hs | being n negro as ho
was passing in Omaha for a white man.
Mr. Paulsen listened to Sheriff Hick-
iiiun'a story and then said ho would not
prosecute Wooldridgo. Ho said his
daughter had chosen him for n husband
jiiul ho didn't see how ho could do any
thing in the case.
As there has been no legal action taken
in the case Sheriff Iliekman had nothing
to do but to got out of the way. Ho will
rot urn homo this morning ,
AVooldrldgo is still measuring milk at
the Rock Springs dairy.
A S12.NSATIO.VAIi SUIT.
A Doctor Who AVauts u Co-Partner *
* ship Dissolved.
Dr. U. M. Dinsmoro commenced a suit
In tlio [ district court this
yodtcrday afternoon to dissolve
ho partnortihip between himself
and Dr. Parcel ! . His petition is full of
interesting , amusing and .novel allega
Uo elates that on the lOtlf of February
Parcel ! came to him and wanted to go in
to partnership , and a deal was then nnd
there consummated , by which the two
went into business together , share and
share alike. Soon after that , Dr. Dins-
more alleges , he discovered that Dr. Par-
cell knew little about medicine and still
lc s about the principles of honesty.
Among other thing * ho would go around
to liis ( Dr. DinsmoroV ) patlrnts and give
them instructions directly the reverse of
what they had llrst received. Ho
would confidentially inform them that
Dr. Din.Mnoro knew little about medi
cine , while ho , Dr. Parcull , was possessed
of well nigh infinite power nnd skill. In
this way ho would seek to destroy the
confidence of tlio nlaintifPs patients.
The petition goes on to state that Par-
cell was in thr habit of giving hin patients
wrong mcdlcmcBin order that they might
remain sick the longer , so that he might
extort money from them. Sometimes , It
is alleged , he would give them water
mixed witli medicine , or even water
without mt'dlcine , for this purpose.
I'lirthcrmoro , it is alleged Dr. Parcell
had a bad habit of coming into Dr. Dius-
nioor'1' ollico and remaining the re tor
hours at a time , with liis feet cocked up
on tin1 Inblc. lie would absolutely refuse
to leave , unless forced to do so. Ho also
had n bad habit of singing in a loud nnd
boisterous manner , calculated to disgust
the patients of Dr. Dinsmoor. As the de
fendant iMi't possessed of the voice ot a
nightingale , his vocal efforts were not lit-
ti'tl to soothe the nerves.
The petition goes on to.state that things
went on this way untilJulyO. when Dr.
Dinsmore demanded a dissolution of the
co-partnership , which Parcell refused to
consent to , although ho promised to go
out on October 1 , 18SO.
The plamtilf winds up by demanding a
dissolution of the partnership and an
equal division of the property.
One of the distinct allegations of the
petition is that Pareell wrote a letter to 11
lady , nigh in social circles here , one of
Dr. Dinsmorc's prtieiits. warning her
against falling in love with Dr. D. , who
was a very bad. bad man. In other and
similar ways , it is claimed , Dr. Parcell
has tried to ruin Dr. Dinsmore'u businc.-.s.
THE OK AND ARMY BOX'S.
How llioy Are Heading Tor the West
Mr. Blackburn's Present.
The passenger dopartmcntof the Union
Pacific yestcrdaylrcceivc information that
the first large delegation to the great G.
A. II. encampment in San Francisco

would arrive hero on the 21st. Following
that , the AVisconsin delegation will pas' *
through here on the 2-lth , the Pennsyl
vania and Massachusetts delegations on
the Q5tn , the Iowa and New Jersey dele
gations on the 27th. The Indiana , Missis
sippi , and Arkansas delegations will go
west via Kansas City , about the same
time , over the Union Pacific. Decides
these regularly organized delegations ,
largo numbers of the Grand Army
men are going west cvex
day headed for the Golden
gate , probably at the rate of fifty to one
hundred a day. Next week it is expected
the rush will be made at 1,000 per day.
It is anticipated that irom 50,003 to
75,000 Grand Army of the Republic men
will be in attendance at the conclave.
Mr. T. 13. Blackburn , chief clerk of the
passenger department upon rcturning.yes-
terday was made the rccopicnt of a
handsome olilce chair , the gift of his as
sociates. Mr. B. was a trifle overcome ,
but responded witli a brief speech of
thanks. lie leaves the office witli the as
surance tliat all his co-workcas sincerely
regret his departure. No one hs yet
been selected to fill his place. -
A circular was issued yesterday announ
cing that that the name of .Denver Junc
tion station had been changed to Jules-
berg to agree with the name of the post-
ollice at that point.
Judge Brewer's Decision.
Clerk Frank of the United States court
yesterday received animpnrtant | decision
from Judge Brewer in'the case of J. . ) .
Budlong and the Norweigian Plow com
pany vs Lewis A. Kent. The suit was
brought by the creditors of Smith P.
Tuttle , tv merchant of Minden , who had
failed. Tuttle , it appears , had made an
assignment of His property to tlio
First National bank of Minden ,
to secure them on a note
of if'J.OOO which they held against
him. The foreign creditors claim that
tliis was all a "blind , " put up mersly to
defraud them. They alleged that Tut-
tle's property and stock of goods were
worth far moro than $9,000. and asked
that the proceeds of this properly might
bo taken from Kent , president of tlio
bank and applied to their benefit. Judge
Brewer , however , thought that their side
of tlio case was not proven , and ordered
that a decree be entered up against them.
A Professional flippodromcr.
AV. A. Gregg , the foot racer , whoso dis
graceful hippodrome race with Stoyon-
son will bo remembered by local sporting
men , has been up to his old tricks again ,
tliis time at Bellwood , Nob. Mr. George
Kay received a letter frojn George Huff
man , who styles himself the champion
heel and too pedestrian of Nebraska ,
stilting that Gregg had come to that city
and made n five inilo race with him. It
was agreed that llulfmann should allow
Gregg to win tlio race , on condition that
another ten-mile race should bo arrang
ed for larger stakes , AVhen Gretrg won the
race , however , ho pocketed the stakes ,
his backer , "Billy" Bardoo , gathered in
tlio bets , mid the pair loft town together ,
leaving Huffman and bis backers to kick
themselves black and blue.
John Jacobs , who keeps ji boarding
house for railroad men , just west of Will-
nut Hill , appeared before Justice Ander
son yesterday nnd swore [ out a war
rant for tlio arrest of three of his board-
on * , who , he said , had been on a spree
last night and made u great disturbance
about tlio house. They had broken up
the turniture , torn down tlio stoves , bro
ken the windows and played a game of
general smash. The men , whose names
wore James Cole , James Thompson nnd
James McQuadii , were arrested. Cole
and McQuudu were lined $10 nnd costs ,
upon pleading guilty. Ttiompson pleaded
not guilty ami upon trial was lined $10
and costs and ton days In the county
Messrs. G. AV. Lintnger , J , A. Wake
Held nnd Major D , H , Wheeler will leave
on Friday for Chicago and Milwaukee to
take notes on the expositions in those
cities so as to enable the local project tc
bo successfully carried out. They will posl
themselves thoroughly before starting
on all the essentials. "Tho fact is , " sate
President Meyer , of the association to
day , "wo propose to leave no stone tin-
turned to make this thing a big success
We shall take care not to have it turn out
u failure like the Juno festival. "
The People's Theater.
Tlio People's theater has boon leasci
for the next season by the well known
actor , Robert Ransom , who last season
played n very successful engagement ut
the house. Both himself and his wife
Cecil Wallace , made quite a hit in the
"Celebrated Case. " The place will bo
run as to accommodate cheap combina
lions , Which are. however , of good repu
tatioii in the theatrical world ,
ODDS AND TND9.
Stray Leaven From n Reporter's
"I saw in tlio RKK of ycstcrJay , " said a
public spirited Omahnn who has made
half a fortune in this city in the last
soveli years , "that the managers of the
fair bourd propose to run an
exposition In this city shortly before and
during the Omaha district fair. Nothing
could give mo greater pleasure than tins
announcement. Do you know , it was on
one of the evenings of the first Chicago
exposition that I proposed to my present
vita ? It's n fact. And I tell you that 1
iclievo if it hadn't been for the surround-
ngs of an unlimited variety of display * .
hrongs of rich and poor anil variously
Iri-ssed people , brilliant lights and vol-
iptuous music , I believe I wouldn't have
obtained the marital consent of my wife.
At least that's what she said , but then ,
hose women Eometlnics say things
o tantalize u follow. well , let
hat be as it may. I tell
you thousands of young people made
eve to one another during that expos- !
ion , and are to-day happy husbands ,
rivus , and fathers and mothers. I know ,
iowevertliat marriage was notthe prime
native In the Chicago exhibition , neither
should it bo in that of Omaha. My point
s that if the directors make the exposi-
Ion" worthy of patronage it will attract
ill classes , and that is what will make it
successful. Let mo tell you , however ,
hat better advertising must be done
him was carried out in the recent races
iicre and musical festival. "
"Tho freight rate war between the Iowa
roads , it appears , is about to bo tprmin-
nted , " said CommNsionor Grilliths to a
cporter yesterday. "On the whole , it
uis been productive of good to our Oma-
1:1 : business men. it lias enabled them to
ay in a stock of goods from eastern
loints at greatly reduced figures. In
hat way many of our retailers and job-
> ers have undoubtedly saved much
noncy. But it is time for the war to
stup , and it is host for tlio business men
of Omaha that it should. And this the
mijority of our merchants realize. "
"How is thatV" asked tno reporter.
"Simply for these reasons , If this war
continues much longer , say six months ,
the tendency will be , on the part of local
merchants to overload and uccumilatc
itocks which they cannot work off for a
eng time to come , Then again tuo bal-
mee of trade will be destroyed. One
ncrchant will never know on what rates
mother jobber is having his goods
shipped from tl o eastern cities.
. ) no may be paying ? 20 a oar-
oad to one road where another
nan is , for the same transportation , pay-
ng10 to another road. The couso-
Hjenee is that local prices become clcinor-
ilized , and moro trouble follows. Then
ngain the retailers take advantage of the
Irop in rates and buy their goods direct
Vom Chicago instead of purclinmng them
icrc. There are reasons fliat 1 might
enumerate , but I think 1 have said
enough to show that Omaha business
nen have reason to desire a speedy and
equitable restoration of rates. "
On Tuesday a gang of fifteen
aborcrs boarded the B. & M. train their
ntention of going to Broken Bow to
vork for the company. They were
Urnished with u pass for the entire num-
> cr , which was in the possession of one
of their number. This fellow got off at
yir.coln and became drunk and did not
cturn to the depot in time to catcli the
rain. As a consequence , some of tiie
nen were left off at Lincoln while others
jugged their way to Hustings. Some of
hose who stopped at Lincoln have re-
.u'riicd . to Omaha and felt like treating
heir bibulous friend to a first' class
" 1 see that Fay Tcmpleton's new mat
rimonial alliance is galling her already ,
nnd she is as eager to get back to the old
round of footlight successes and cham-
nignc suppers with congenial friends , as
she was to get away from them but a few
> ricf months ago. " The speaker was a
young and handsome- lieutenant in the
irmy , stationed at a fort in the
soutnwest , who was in Omaha yesterday ,
enroute to his eastern homo on a leave of
absence. His dark eyes assumed the ox-
ircssion peculiar to soldiers and sailors ,
is.he continuedjin alialf conlidontial.tono :
'Fay is very peculiar in her changes of
ieart. I don't think she is a ilirt. I urn
nclincd to believe that she is perfectly
loncst in her love affairs , but is naturally
changeable and easily won over
Tom affections and good resolu-
ions. I am absolutely cor-
ain that the feeble heart of the lair
Fay was once all my own. " Startled at
.ho revelation lie had almostunconscious-
y made , the soldier checked liimself.and
, was only at the earnest solicitation of
tlio scribe that ho continued the story ,
and the conclusion ivas told in a matter
of fact manner and tone of voice , "It
was three years ago when Fay with the
Tompleton Opera company gave an en
tertainment at the fort where I was sta
tioned. I was just out of West Point.and
was ready for anything. AVe met at the
banquet table , l was completely smitten
and Fay appeared to bo. Wo met after
the opera and 1 spent the Happiest even
ing of my life , head over heels in love
and fully assured that my ardent affec
tion was reciprocated. AVlicn wo parted
Fay gave mo this ring , which , you will
see bears the name of one of the best
known funny writers in the country , jlJ.
AV. P. 1 guess yon wont have hard
work to guess the name. Well 1 never
heard a word from Fay and have recov
ered from my attack. I often look at the
ring and wonder if Peck was as badly
mashed when ho gave the rinir to Fay as
1 was when she gave it to mo. "
Itcltzer , the BeiiUelmun Knnlcer.
The report that Bolt/.or , the Bonkolman
banker , got away with $100,000 , is dis
credited by Omaha bankers , Bcnkelman
is a very small place , not haying over 400
inhabitants. The Diindy county bank

& Beltxer , the latter ot whom Isthopresi
dent , who has skipped. Although they
were rated at from $8,1,000
tp 10,000 , ana credit very good , they re
ported not long since to one banker's
publication that their paid-up capital was
$10,000 , while in another similar publica
tion they were valued at only $3,500 cupi-
taL If Boltzer has got away witli $100- ,
000 ho must have done It by obtaining
money from eastern parties for the pur
pose of loaning it out. The Benkclmuii
bank did not do any business wjlh any of
the Omaha banks ,
Wcdnosday sad aflliction was experienced
