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 ; 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.

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.
in police court yesterday the cases
were only limited by the number of hours
that made a working day. The round

Ono young man , who evidently was
ashamed of himself , paid out before trial

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

The cases brought against parties for

the part of the parties called up. Yester

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. "

Something About an Interesting Element

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 ; 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
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
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
" " ' '
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.

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

( with the tone of a man explaining n

know what 'white plush' is. Why , it's
the now drink , i thought everybody
know that. "
"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

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. ' ( Jive the
gentleman another yard ofwhito , plush ,
hero , ' und the name has stuck to it ever
since. "

rcspondcnco of the BKK. ] Much fear Is
entertained lest the hot , dry weather in
jure the crops in this section. iSo rain
in two WCOKS.
Illidroth , the now town near the center
of the county on the north , Is making
rapid strides towards a village of import
ance. Let 'cr boom.
Township organization will be adopted
here this fall by a clear majority of
nearly 200.
Calhoun , of the Lincoln Journal , al
ways more than ready to malign the BIK : ,
takes a miserable , cowardly advantage
when he will knowingly and wilfully
misstate facts , as he did recently , in re
lation to correspondence from hcie ,
which appeared in the Hr.n. We defy
Calhoun and all his ancestors to show a
single Instance where our correspond
ence has contained an untruth.
The farmers of this county have com
menced organizing to support Van Wjek
Thu political curtain will bu rung down
this fall on ono of the most disorganized
rings in the history of Franklin county.
The ring will learn too l\to : that the people
ple have some rights which even rings
are bound to respect.
AuothniMittempt will Uo ninety this fall
by Kranklin lo remove to their village the
county seat. It cannot be. clone.
Kovembor 2'3 Is the day hot for Calhoun
and his nut commissioners , whose ollicial
careers have been a ropitition of expen
sive blunders , and partiality to the rings ,
to vindicate themselves.

conservative and independent persons as
the only labor daily in the stato. All thu
rest are members of the corporation gang
and for which tliov have established : v
system of bushwhacking and bully-rag
ging , not a whit less than tyranny.
"Harrison for congress" looks well in
print and has a pleasing sound to nn hon
est man's car , for lie knows that no dis
honest measure would oycr pass in tlio
house of representatives of these United
States without his dissent , wcro he a
member , But , after all , wo can see little
reason for expecting Mr. Harrison to bo
elected , with Stinking Water Jim as his
opponent. Mr. Harrison would not stoop
to Jim's mode of electioneering , and this
one point alone , wo arc airaid , result dis
astrously. To defeat Jim Laird , wo must
oppose him with a popular man and one
who will meet the dandy from the per
fumery district on every point.
Uco. W. Slieppard would like very
much to push Judge Wm.Gaslin.jr. , into
the race for congress , that he might make
a race for the judge's old shoes the
judgcship of the Eighth district. Hut
when Geo. W. Slieppard is elected judge
in this district , the people will curse the
day when they were associated with him ,
in the same district.
E. A. Fletcher will probably be the
next county attorney.
"Demagogue" 13usli wants to bo sena
tor. Tnerc are several of the same ilk
who wantoflices , but there is a doubt
about their ability to gel them.
Ono of the greatest dampliool ideas of
the commissioners was to put Jno.S. Ray
and Don't-know-much Cad man , forward
as oxpcits in the examination of I the
county clerks' record. It looks like a
job of political "boost-mo-up" at tlio pee
ple's expense. Neither of them is capa
ble of examining nn ordinary set of books
as used in a wholesale house. Uay
wants to be county clerk awful bad , hav
ing been defeated once by Win. A. Cole ,
and Ira Cadman has for the past live
years been a standing political target
always praying that political lightning
wouldstiiko him. It never strikes him
and never will.

no one need be afraid of uoing called
"shoddy" if her loveliness Is as apparent
by daylight as at the hops. iVifect

We understand < Dr. U. C. Flower
will bo enrouto in n few days for Colorado
rado , in company with a party of friends ,
and at the ot n number of lita
patients anil friends , has concluded to
maVo a few stops on his way out and re

plaees on days and dates given below-

bo short , yet it will ntlord an opportunity
not often presented to consult this dis
tinguished physician without going all
the way to lloston to consult him. 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.
This is a wonderful gift for any one to
possess , and Dr. Flower's diagnostic pow

Hartford Cournnl : It is current rumor
that n very largo pile of inonov . w J
" " iw. . -
"drrinnetl" 11 v - 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.
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.
