LFROM TMI : DEE'S MNCor.x nonnAU.1 The city council has been devoting .1 good amount of time latterly perfecting thn plans lor the sewerage system for the city under the \\arlng system of spcclli- callous as accented by the council. In this work of perfecting plans the sower- nge committee has visited Omaha nnd iilso has had the city engineer of Oma ha , Andrew Uoscwaler , down to tins city nt two dlllcrent sessions of the council. The results have been some important changes that must commend themselves to the cltlxens at llrsl sigl.t. Under the Waring specHications the principal sewerage mains were only to bo down olght feet in depth , and this has been changed making the depth twelve feet instead of eight. 'J'ho wisdom of this change will bo apparent when It is re membered that a basement eight feet or morn below ground would bo lower than the sewer mains , making drainage from such buildings impossible. It would seem strange that such tin oversight should have been made in the lirst place , but with the drainage pipes twelve foot down this defect Is rem edied. Again the size of the pipes have JSPWI glumsctt to oijrht-u ; nstc.id of inch , the six-inch pipe in Omaha proving BO defective in work that in many in stances it has had to be replaced with litrger. The council here , in view of that iact and the-history of six-inch pipe as in operation there , has wisely changed in the commencement to a standard proven by experience to be much the more pro- foi able. Attain , the lirst plans have benn changed in another respect. That is , the new arrangement will require man holes nt Ici3t : oyer.v block , making the main newer easy of access at anv lima , and al lowing any stoppage to bo discovered , located and remedied without the ncc-os- Hily of tearing up streets and pavements to find the point of dilliculty ns the lirst plans would have resulted. All these changes add to some extent to the cost , but the plans and specifications as amended by Engineer Hosowater and adopted by the council have been radi cally changed in wording aad in the way the work shall be done , supervised and paid for , which the council regard as good and uropcr safeguards for the city that were unprovided tor heretofore. Under these changes in depth of laying mains and the si7.o of pipes used , the ter ritory intended to bo covered with sewerage - ago will have to bo slightly curtailed to moot the additional expense and keep all within the limit of the amount received from the sale of bonds. The probable reduction in territory will cause a change" in tnu mileage laid Irom twenty-live to twenty miles. Uul , on thu other hand , somfi saving will bo made in one instance that may bo cited. The estimate as pre viously made out provided that 1J ! per cent of the ! ? 80,000 should be used in pay ment for the engineering work. Mr. lloscwntcr , however , submitted a propo- nition to the council to do tlio work for ? 5,000 , which would only bo some 7 in stead of.1J . ! per cent , aim a consequent saving of 0 per cent on that item of ox- pcnsu. Tlio ( fuestion of accepting this proposition was left with the sewerage committee , with power to act , and it is understood that a contract to that effect will bo entered into between the engineer and the city. I'KECINCT BONDS issued by Scotia precinct , Greeloy county , for the uurposoof building a court house , were going through the routine handling at tlio state house yesterday. These bonds arc , in amount , $4,000. and they are issued to run ten years , drawing in terest at the rateof 7 per cent per annum. Dii'AUTEl > I'OLITICIANS. The numerous candidates and politi cians of high und low degree , who felt themselves called to the capital city at tlio congressional committee meeting , have departed homeward n < jain , nmt pence and quietness reigns. Mr. Clarke was thu only gubernatorial candidate present , and it looked vcrv friendly to Clarke. General Thayer , who was in the city a few days previous , had hold an interview - torviow that had Dccu made public , and departed. Captain lluir.phroy. ot Paw nee , was gathered at the hotoIJobby , and he disabuses thn minds of a good many who had counted him not a congressional candidate by announcing himself in the ring , and evidently lie is watching for a deadlock at convention time , when a compromise candidate's hour would come. All now , however , is peace and quietness , and lots of it. TUB DAY'S DOINGS. in police court yesterday the cases were only limited by the number of hours that made a working day. The round up of the night showed cloven now pris * , oners in the cooler waiting for a hearing. Ono young man , who evidently was ashamed of himself , paid out before trial came and departed. Eight others wcra arraigned nt one time. All pleaded guilty to drunkenness and were lined , only three of whom paid out. A vagrant , or a party caught begging on the street , was also one of the now cases in court. He recited a plausible tale of beluga butcher by trade , and that ho had just arrived by tie pass from Crete , and on account of not stopping nt nn eating house on the way he had missed dinner and wns looking for sup per. The judge heard the tale and as sessed u line ot $5 and costs nt its conclu sion. sion.One One of the prisoners who slept in the refrigerator through the long hours of thu night su\vtis ona of thu courts guests , when his case was called , the familiar face of his bettor half , who was on a search for him. and who , ( hiding her lord , turnished hnancial aid for his free dom. dom.Tho The cases brought against parties for .violating the health ordinance are the cause of a good deal of indignation on the part of the parties called up. Yester day Moi rs. Jirown and J. H. Foster paid lines of $1 and costs each , and the latter gentleman remarked that he would henceforth give the police court all the work it could attend to , and that he pro posed to see to It that his particular alloy wns henceforth as clean as a brussels carpet , if he had to have every man in the neighborhood arrested. Complaints were lodged yesterday against Mrs. 1'ut- natnnndll , C. Palmer for violation of this ordinance. Frank Whltcomb , the right bower of Agent James in his work , and who was cited yesterday as being a common gam bler , was arrested also in police- court on a like charge , making three counts in all , While fooling around police headquar ters ho was sot upon by a party named Urounan , and the appearance of the au thorities saved him from being disfig ured. Urounan wns locked up on the charge of assault , and yesterday his Menus were preparing to bail him out nnd pay his fine. This was the first case of violence shown the Law and Order agents , and the assault , it Is said , was provoked. A party named Blurting , who had some dilliculty with some guests of tenants of * usIor something of the kind , was being trictl yoslordny under n cbarge of .assault and battury. Oliver MnpKanl , i licensed drnyman , waslo bo called up lo court lo answer to the reason of why bo overcharged parties for hauling , contrary to the rates pre scribed by ordinance. U is a fact that might , be mentioned in this regard that n system of little less than highway rob bery U practiced bv some of the drnynien on now comers In this mutter of overcharging - charging , and that is paid through ignor * nnsi1. A number of Lincoln fishermen nnd holiday seekers are going out to Crete to day to liih. Tlio way they o .pcct to reap Riici'-s ( fiil returns lies in the fact that ilohn Lanhaii luis the contract foi re pairing the mill diini at thai phicr , anil till the water from the poiuls nbovu will bo drawn oil' . Thp Lincoln lishcr- men expect to gather llsh in quantities in much tlio same way that a melon patch is raided in the dtirk of the moon. Thu line now brick block on the cor ner of U and Sixteenth street is Hearing completion and is a handsome structure. 1'ivo years ago this location was out in thn country , comparatively. 1'ctcr Johnson and Harry McLaln were Dailncrs In business in the little town of Coiirtland , just over the county lino. Yesterday 1'otcr Johnson was arrested and brought into Justice Brown's court charged with disposing with over a thousand dollars' worth of partnership notes for a loan of money , which money ho proceeded to use for his own indiviilunl purposes , and in doing so committing a fraud upon his partner. When arre.stcd ami brought into court Johnson did not deny disposing of the noles , and it looks us though a trial will jro hard with him. A oontimtnnco was hud and the cashier of the bank went Johnson's security. The man John Wcttoncamp , arrested on the charge of beating his wife , was brought into court yesterday and the case was continued by consent of attorneys for one month. It .seems that thy beating was ( ho result of u ir- . " . - ; ; ( vSl. , ! Kreement , and it is said the continuance means a settlement of ditHcultics outside of court. HOTEL MUUVAT.S.

Chicaco Mail : Kdwin Booth , it is said , will retire froni the stage at the end of next season indeed , it is not improbable that he will not play another season , so weary , ill. and despondent is he. Jf ho had been loft to himself the last live .years ho would MI rely have remained in seclusion. Ho tills engagements only because managers seek him out and bind him to contracts which ho fools obliged to keep. His spiritual ailments are inertia and brooding , and they are not likely to bo cured. lie is free from debt , and may have , in all , property worth $200,000 , the income from which will sulllco for his modest requirements. His inilill'orcnce to money and to most things which the world ranks as pleasures is absolute and dclinilc. A veritable gen tleman in the best und highest sense , n genial and delightful companion whom all gentlemen admire and like , ho is apt to wound their sensitive pride by his lack of reciprocity. His natureis really soli tary. though ho enjoys the society ot kindred spirits if they come to him ; it is peculiar , almost unique. Few under stand him , and he tries not to bo under stood. It is strange that the foremost of native tragedians should bo .so isolated and exceptional. ' lie is , in brief , the real Hamlet of thu nineteenth century the melancholy Ur earner of the western world. \Yomoa in the Government Printing Otltoe. Cleveland Leader Washington Corres pondence : The women of the govern ment printing oilico are paid as a rule by piece or by the day. These on piece work make $1.83 a day , and there arc over 1,000 women so employed. They stitch pamphlets , run numbering ma chines , fold and paste for the bindery , and they do in fact nearly every class of work done in the government printing oilico. Some of them sot type , and these receive 85 cents nn hour , and their average salaries are $70 n month. A largo number of guides are employed nt the Bureau of engraving find prilling , anil these are nearly nu women. An army of sweepers and scrubbers is em ployed to clean out the treasury depart ment every day , and the woman who presides over tliom gets about $800 a year. These sweepers nnd scrubbers of the various departments form another largo class of the working women ot Washington , nnd connected with them is n class who sow en rpets in the treasury for the government buildings all over thn country. Then there is the colony of washerwomen , who wash the thousands of towels used in each department , and the numerous women who supply the p.lorks with food in the restaurants of these great buildings. Rheumatism , lumbago , and sciatica at once yield to the power of St. Jacobs Oil. A Book Agent's Triclc. Minneapolis Tribune : A friend of mine was tellint ; mo the other day of some of the sharp tricks which book agents play in order to gain entrance to private houses for.tlm purpose of exhibit ing their wares. The favorite scheme at present scorns to bo the following : The agent arms himself with a list ot some of tlio prominent residences , with their occupants , and a package of calling- cards executed in the most fashionable stylo. Ho then starts out to make his "calls , " He stops at the house of Mr. A. , rings the boll and politely requests the servants to bo kind enough to hand his card to Mrs , A. The servant naturally supposes him to be n fashionable caller , and anounccs to Mrs. A. that "a gentlemen - mon wants to see lior. " Mrs. A. there upon spends half an hour in making her self presentable , and descends to the par lor to find a book agent. [ Tableau. ] My friend suggested that book aconta should bo compelled by law to wear it uniform , so that servants may bo able to distinguish them from "gentlemen.

How ilolui Is lircotnhiK Anglicised Chinese 3Inrrlnjci The l-anti- dry Btislucf-s Opium Smok- inj ; , Etc. The C'clcstlnl Element. Chinaman John's famous declaration "Chinaman nlloo same Mclican man , him hcapco sniokce , chowce , drinkee lighU'o nnd go to hclleo" must not betaken taken ns a criterion whereby to judge the average Mongolian citueu of Otniiha. There are thlrtjthree of these Celestials in our midst , nnd they constitute a quiet , orderly and money-making element of the local population. It is a fact noticeable to the average observer that Omaha , compared with other western cities , has but few China men. Lincoln , with about ono-thlrd bur population has twice ns many of these almond-eyed gentlemen as has Omaha. The same thing is to bo noticed upon comparison of this city with other grow ing western towns. Why this is , if is not easy to sec. Certainly the Chinaman in Omaha is well cared for , and receives all the protection that ho could desire. It may be that the many American laundries which have sprung up all over the city have something to do with the case , ami that they are pulling John on the back shelf with the washwoman who used to Houri.it ; n ± } % & iiu.uijisis ; ton o twelve years ago. Cui'tain it is that out of the 73,000 population which this proud young city boasts , less than three do7.cn are Chinamen. And it is said that the Chinese elumeiit of our population is smaller than it was live years ago. An avlicle ol this kiiul , wJlk'b ucouQSja to toll something about Chinese life In Omaha , must bo necessarily incomplete. A few sKctches of the dillbrent phases of the subject are heroin strung together , nnd presented for the benelit of Iho curious reader. Of the thirty-four Chinamen in this city , about twenty-eight are in the laun dry business , One is a tea and general notion merchant , another is a doctor , and two arc family servants. There are about twelve laundries in the city each giving employment to from two to three men. The oldest Chinaman in the city is Yet Sing , who can lay claim to forty-two summers and winters. Yet is a good fellow , but when angry or insulted , no is to u e a slang phrase a "terror. " lie can light , and his wrestling powers are of about the same type as those of the Jap , Sorakaehi. lie is continually getting into trouble , and is well known to thu police. The youngest Mongolian is about sixteen years of age , and a rather good looking , chubby laced young fel low who is known among his comrades ah the "baby. " The Chinaman who has been in Omaha tlio longest cannot lay claim to more than seven year's residence here. The fact is that tlio average celestial does not care to remain any Jonger in Omaha than he can help , lie is anxious to amass a competency , in order that he may return to the native land , marry and settle down. To enable the reader to fully understand this point , it may be well to reproduce in aiigliei/.ed form the explanation made to a reporter by an intelligent Chinaman. "Our coun trymen do not care to marry in America" ho said "because they have brides awaiting them in China. Nearly every Chinaman is betrothed by his parents before - fore ho is ten or twelve years of age to some girl. When both become of the proper age , they are allowed to marry. In China marriages are made at a much earlier ago than in your country. When the j'oung man leaves his homo and starts for America , his bride goes to live with his mother , who leaches her to cook and perform nil the duties which it is neces sary for her to know. The girl lives with the young man's mother until lie rclurns and marries. During nil this time she dares not receive the attention of any other young man , nor can she marry. It ho does not return from America , she cannot marry unless it is known that ho is dead ; then she can return to live with her own folks again. And then she can marry Some one else. " And so it is that the average Omaha Chinaman is hurrying to save money so that ho may return to the old country and settle down to a comtortablo com petency with his almond-eyed wife. Quito a number of Chiiwmon have luft Omaha in tiiis way in the last year or two. There is one Mongolian in the city , however , who , it would seem , has no in tention of going back to the old country. He"is married to a white woman here , has cut his queue oil' , and is , altogether , rapidly becoming Americanized. He drussus well , sports kid gloves and car ries a handsome gold-headed cano. lie is to his brethren here what Berry Wall is or was to the dudes of Now York city. Nor is ho the only Chinaman here who allccts the American in costume and conduct. There are quite a number of celestials in this city who dress in American style oven to the stand up collar , and llashy silk necktie. About ono half of the Chinamen hero , probably , have discarded their native costume of Iho baggy mints , loose shirt , and clumsy punts and nave put on the ( to us ) mora civilized dress of coat , pants , vest and narrow-toed shoes. With the exception of the individual referred to above , however - over , the writer knows of no other China man in Omaha who has gone so far as to chop oil his pig tall. For that in the old country means certain abasement , if nothing worse. There is u small but choice coterie of Chinese spirits in Omaha who seek an approach to Americanism , in other ways than in matters of dress. These gentle men are "way m > " in the pleasures of going to the thoatro.for instance. During tlio recent visit of the Grau opera com pany here , they attended quite regularly. The performance of the "Mikado1'seemed ' to tickle them mightily. In olher ways , too , they are rapidly drifting toward our western civilization , such as in the ac complishments of drinking , smoking , chewing1 , gambling , etc. , etc. In another direction tliu Omaha China man is becoming rapidly Americanized. The Sunday school , which is conducted in the Buckingham Homo , is doing much to teach the Chinaman to read and write. Some of them are already creditably pro- licicnt in the thrco It's , As has already been Intimated- great majority ot Chinaman in Omaha are engaged m the laundry business. Some of them are already proficient in the art of washing nnd ironing when they come to this country , having already learned in Hong Kong , China , from thu vicinity of which city most of the Omaha Mongolians hail. A young Chinaman , however , who starts to learn the business hero is required to go through a thorough course of training , lasting sometimes a year or two , and comprising the diil'oront branches of washing , starching , ironing nnd folding the clothes. Ono dimcult fea ture of the work is tho"spinging , " which the ironer has to do. Tha "splnging" consists of squirting the water through the teeth , in a thousand fine streams upon the.clothes , preparatory to ironing them. This is no easy accomplishment , as anyone ono who will attempt the feat will dis cover , The Chinamen fills his mouth with water , and by a sudden effort of expulsion drives It through his teeth tipou the clothes. It requires months of prao- tico to acquires perfectly the art of " " ' ' "splnging" These laundrymcn are capable of iloing the hardest kind of hard work. Seven- loon hours is thn average length of their working day. and oftentimes a pressure of work will oonipbl them to labor twen ty-four hours without rest. As for wealth ) some of these laundry- moil are "well .licolod. . " There arc sev eral laundrymcn worth over 2.000 cash , nnd ono "washeo-washco" on Sixteenth street is reputed to bo the possessor of the snug little stun of 1,000. In closing this article. It may not bo amiss to refer to the popular belief that all or the majority of Chinamen in Omaha are opium smoKcrs , or "hop liends , " to use a riioro familiar expres sion. Such is far from being tlio case. There arc now two opium joints In this city , connected with Chinese laundries. These are almost entirely patronized by white people of the sporting olas cs , male and female. It is safe to say that not over live or six Celestials are habitual users of the seductive drug. An intelli gent Chinaman , in discussing the matter with a reporter the other day , made the asscitlon that there were but four of hm race in Omaha who were addicted to the use of opium. "WHITEWllSH. " The Iiutost Fnslilmtnlilc Drink In New VorJc llari-norni. Now York Herald : "What is the rea son for the big demand for milk ? This place doesn't resemble a dairy. " " 0 , everybody wants 'white plush' lately. It's caught on great. " "And what is white plush ? " "What is it ? Well you ought to be labeled I Where do you live ?

" "JJut what's it Uiado of ? " " 0. just milk ana wntsky. I never know a drink that caught on so quick ergot got so popular as 'whito plush'has. All uio swells drink it It makes a very good booze , too palatable , and is a lir&l-clabs all-round drink. If a fellow hasn't cat anything it is very nourishing ; takes the plarm nf fonit } > nv. if a. \ " \ \ | j > 2nnv \ up nil night whooping things , a 'whifo ' plush' is a bettor bracpr than a cocktail. It slips down oaby- , you know , when a fellow linds it pretty hard work to swal low anything. Then , too , it's a good day drink , for it doesn't leave a breath , and a man can talk with his employer or a tem perance advocate without giving himself away. As an evening drink it has its advantages also. You can either make them 'short' or 'long' ; and us nobody knows how much whisky you arc drink ing you have no need to get full unless vou want to. It is a great snap for that. " "How did'white plush' first get into the market ? " "O , by accident. Just as all the fancy mixtures do. There are some mixed drinks that are standbys , and are always popular , such as cocktails , punches , and juleps ; but every little while there will bo a new racket sprung on the public that will have a great run 'for u while , and then got knockekl out by another. About a month ago 'white plush' got its stare this wav : There was a country buyer down from Nqw England somewhere , and a party of dry-goods men were try ing to make it pleasant for him. So they look him into a swell bar-room down town , and wcro going to open sour wine. Same old story , you know ; get him full as a balloon , and then work him for a big order. It turned out that this coun tryman was not such a flat as they thought him. Though ho had been swig ging barrels of hard cider and smuggled Canada whisky for tlio last twenty years , he pleaded the tempo ancn business on them ; said ho never drank , and he guessed he'd just take a glass of water if they'd get him one , as he was kinder thirsty walkin' round so much. Well , that was a factOrtQk for the boys. They know ho had lot's of money to spend , nnd ho was ono of those unapproachable ducks that have got to be warmed up be fore you can do anything with them. " 'O , take something" they said ; 'take some milk. ' " 'Well , I guebS a glass of milk would go sorter good , ' said ho , Some one suggested icumyss , and told him what it was. As they did not have kumyss In the place they gave him some milk'and seltzer. That's about the same thing. Ouo ot the boys gave the bar tender the wink and ho put n dash of whisky in it. The old man did not got on to it at all. He thought it was the seltzer that flavored it. The next round the seltzer was loft out. altogether and more whisky put in. They kept on giv ing to him imUlhogot pretty well sot up. ' . It's u very insidious nnd seductive drink. Pretty soon the countryman got funny and tipped his glass over on the table. As it spread around he said : " 'Gosh , it looks like white plush , don't it ? ' " 'So it does , ' said the boys.

Wlicn- ever il is known that Dr. Flower is stop- pin at a hotel , whether in tlio cast , west , north or south , crowds gather to consult him , and It is not tobuwonderctLnl when it is remembered that in diagnosing n tll ua o ho never nsk the hick person any question , but doM-iibe.s the dilVorent diseases - eases better than the sick can themselves.

COLLEGE CONTESTS. $200,001) Lost tiy tlio llnrviml lloys In Itels DH ttio Unreal Itoat-Ituco. Hartford Cournnl : It is current rumor that n very largo pile of inonov . w J " " iw. . - "drrinnetl" 11 v - iuoppc.il nn > < . . .to-ntirviira boat- race. The Hoston Herald reckons that devotion to the crimson cost the Harvard boys about $ ' ' 00,000 The ball match , It may be added , was not withoutiU. stakes , too. In each case Harvard was the favorite anil Vale thejwlmior. There is soinethiiig iighly disgraceful nuout this whole betting contingent of the eollego contorts. The example is sot , if tlio whole betting is not done , in both colleges by those rich ami pernicious idlers whose fathers send them to college for the sake of saying thuy have been there , and whoso great wealth inclines the managers , in tlio&o monoy-sorvmc days , to help Ihpiu along in the hope of endowments from the parents. They are an injury to whatever college they attend. With their reckless expenditure , their profligate habits , their hig'h scale of living , their idleness , ami their general futility they do for more harm than their parents can undo \ylth tlio uncertain charity of their laat wills and testaments. They are the curse of thu laign colleges to-day. The only wav to look at this boating and tinso'bnlf diversion Ls ns a sport n side issue in a course of educa tion which dons not neglect bodily train ing. If the boys can keep up their sludiso and succeed in their sports it is all very well ; but it is a question whether they do not give too much time lo the latter already. Certainly any further emancipation from study for tlio sake of piny in any of them is a mistake. Considering - sidering _ the abominable cxtcnl lo which the bolting and gambling have gone , it would bo better lo-tlay lo cul aIV all Iho sport than to increase its opportunity. Wo keep the largest number of work men and have every facility for doing line work of all kinds. EDIIOLM & EUICKSON. Salaries of Women Oicrks. Cleveland Leader : The highest salary received by n women clerk in Washing ton is $1,800 n year , nnd ono of these is a law clerk. Less than n score receive $1,000 per annum , but a larger number get $1,200 ; and hun dreds are paid $1,000 a year. Mora copy ists receive often as low as$720aml there is a largo class of women who work by piecework , and who do the olaes of labor that would bo required In n factory. The salaried clerks work from 9 o'clock until 4 , with a short recess at noon for lunch. They have all of their evenings to them selves , and never take any work homo with them. They get their pay regularly at the ITtli and DOtli of every month , and each of them has a month's vacation every year with full pay during the timo. They are treated politely , are free from worry , and the positions may bo consid ered very desirable ones. LIEBIGGO'S "Did mo much good , " turn KnwiN UOOTII.
