amount of attention was nrouucd by
the group , Mallard receiving the greatest
share , lie was the otaorvetl of all the

IV S ! IjYING ON TIIlT TIIACK.
A Drunken Mother and Her Ijlttle
Daughter 1'lckcil Up by Police.
One of the saddest sights witnessed in
the city jail for a long lime might have
been noticed yesterday. It was hat of
a pretty little six-year-old girl playing
about her mother , who lav stretched out
in a drunken stupor on a bunch In the
woman's ceil. The young miss seemed
all unconscious of the situation , though
she confidingly whispered to a reporter :
"Mamma got that way cause she drank
whisky. 1 don't ' like whisky , but I like
beer , and you bet 1 drink It whenever 1
cot a chance , too. "
The woman Mrs. Mary Smith , came
hero with her four children , and hus
band , from St Joe , arriving in Omaha
Monday night. Smith is a telegraph
operator , and came to Omaha to look for
work. So far ho has been unsuccessful ,
and the family have boon obliged to sleep
out doors , and subsist the beat way they
Yesterday morning Mrs. Smith
took her 0 year-old dau
ghter , Daisy , by the hand ,
and started oil' for a stroll. Several
heavy drinks of whiskey "naral.yzcd"
her anil Ollicer UufV Green picked licr up
a short time afterwards lying on the
railroad track. She was locked n in
jail , with her little girl as a companion.
The little one is as bright as a dollar , and
Is really painfully precocious. Durinrj ;
the day her areli prattle furnished amuse
ment for all the habitues of the jail. It
is a pity that the child should bo allowed
to grow up amid such degrading surround-

And He Concluded Not to Ask for the
Gus Jones , ono of Iho drivers of tlio
Park avenue line , had a narrow escape
about 12 o'clock Wednesday night from
svfl'oringiajmishapsimilar to that of the cat-
driver Peterson on Monday night. In
passing the "wood switch" nouv Leavcn-
wortli and Twenty-sixth streets ho no
ticed a man lying in a suspicious altitude
near the track. Jones drove up to tlio
bam and askcct two men to board the
car with him for the return trip. His re
quest wascrantcd and the two fellows
m-med with revolvers jumped on the car
witli him , lying Hat on the scats so as to
avoid observation. The car driver , too ,
was armed and ready for action. When
they reaehed the spot where
the feljow had been seen lying , they
looked in vain for him. At a distance ,
however , they could see him hurrying
across lots , lip soon caught up with tlm
car , and , drawing a revolver , was about
to make a rush at the driver , when ho
saw the barrelsof three revolvers levelled
at him. Ho turned and tied precipitately
before Jones or either of the other men
on the car could tire n sliot. It is almost
to bo regretted that tlio Ruckles' tragedy ,
with variations , was not re-enacted.

Constable Karl yesterday turned in to
Justice Helsley's court § 011 , tlio proceeds
I | of a sale of stock and property ot Colby ,
If Koblnsoii & Co. , the bankrupt grocers on
[ | North Sixteenth street. This will bo ap-
ff plied to the payment of the attachments
which were sworn out by the creditors ,
and will nearly cover the liabilities.
Constable Karl is threatened with a law
suit by Mrs. Knapp , who purchued : the
etoro , Fixtures auil ttook , it is said , the
night bcfoftj the foreclosure was an
nounced , and the lawyers are preparing
papers for the action. The lady , who Is a
mother-in-law of Mr. Robinson , ono of
the partners , will sue the constable for
heavy damages , on the criminal charge
of conversion of property. Mr. Karl
feels safe in the matter , however. Uefore
disposing of the property , ho pccnred
from the attaching creditors an indemni
fying bond which represents about $1-
000,103 worth of property behind it.

A n\K \ Heal.
Ono of the heaviest real estate deals
consummated in this city for months was
closed up yesterday. Mr. C.
E. Mayno purchased from
August jDoll bis twcnty-aecr
farm northeast of the poor arm , between
Leavenworth street and Mt. Pleasant av
enue. The consideration paid was $77-
000. A few years ago Mr. Doll bought
this same strip of land for $2,200.
This bargain was "fixed" up some days
nito at a pricu of $75,000 , and at Mr. Doll's
consenting to it , Mr. Mayno atonco wrote
liim out a check for $1,000. Mrs. Doll ,
liowovor , protested at allowing the land
to go at what she considered too low r
licure , and refused to sign tlio deed Fo-
a time a law suit seemed inevitable. Yes
tcrday , however Mrs. Doll agreed , to sign
the papers , provided Mr. Mavno would
pay $2,000 extra. Preferring this method
of settlement to a law suit , Mr. Mayno
agreed to pay the $77,000 and the transfer
The back steps of the Leavcnworth
street school building is rapidly forging
to the trout as a , roost for lovors. Tlio
Liuilding protects them from the rude
gaze of pedestrians and residents on
Loavenwoi th street ; a high tight board
fence cuts off the alloy prospect and a
convenient outhouse guards partially ,
shelters the cast view. Thus the budding
sprouts and matured mashers spoon ami
smack and squeeze totally unconscious of
the ga/.e a"nd guffaws of a convenient
scribe. Last night several pair picnicked
there , and kept up a low , warm and em
phatic coohig , boveral hours beyond the
proper and fashionable limit. The 15in :
violates no confidence in saying that it is
time to turn tlio hose on the ducklings
and drunuh a sensation.
Hastily Called to IMatte Centre.
OYesterday morning Conductor Keesh in
ono of _ the most gentlemanly ot the Union
Pacilie conductors , had scarcely stopped

serious illness and requesting him to re
turn immediately and bring a physician.
Ho immediately secured Dr. Darrow , and
with him loft on the overland train. Mrs.
Kccshin with her two children have been
visiting Platte Centre for a short time
back , and the news ot tier serious illness
is both an unexpected and severe blow
to her husband.

Uriel' Interviews Plukcrt Up on tlic
Councilman ( loodrich : "I took a sympathetic
pathetic view of the quarrel betw"cui >
Chief Uutlcr and Jim O'Brien , and yet I
felt that Jim had been treated severely
enough. AVe lined him $70 one month's '
wagss ( and that's making him pay pretty
dearly for a single drunk. O'Urien is
not a drunkard. Ho is and has been one
of the best and most reliable liromeniwo
have had , and he has been so for seven
teen years. To throw him out of his
position now in his old age ; when ho is
unlit for anything else would bo unjust.
The line wo imposed upon him will do
moro to make him over more reliable
than ho ti'is been , and even deterring
some of his associates from drunkenness
than his discharge would. It is folly to
expect to find perfect men. He.sidos _
Uutlur should not have sent us his resig
nation. He should have handed it to the
mayor , and then it would have come to
Colonel J. J. Dickey : "Yes , I returned
Wednesday night from the
Black liills country , having
been to Rapid City to inspect the
now Western Union branch to that city ,
on the Northwestern. I found every
thing in satisfactory condition. The
Western Union intends to extend its
lines in the Black Hills country and will
erect within the next month or six weeks
a stretch of wire from Rapid City to Deadwood -
wood , a distance of about two hundred
miles. The country up there is develop
ing very rapidly and nearl.C all the land
in that part of the country I visited is di
vided up into farms and ranches. "
C/tus. Ogilcn : "I liavo just returned
from Chicago , and while there 1 attended
Iho trial of the anarchists. One feature
ol the trial which struck me most forci
bly was the perfect discipline Ayliich was
maintained by the judge , and it was in
strange contrast , 1 can tell you , to what
we are used to here. For instance , ono
of the lawyers , Mr. Foster , started to
ask a witness : 'Do you pretend to say
, ' when bo was interrupted by the
judge , who ruled the question out as be ]
ing improper and impertinent. 'Any
question propounded in that manner , '
said the judge , 'retleets on the character
of the witness , and I will not allow it.1
Mr. Foster re-worded his question , and
was allowed to go on. In other points of
court ethics , the judge is equally strict. "
A.M. Welch : "I learn that Omaha is
to have- two national conventions next
year the Presbyterian general assembly
and the Conference of charities and cor
rections. Do you know that there has
never been but one .successful national
convention held in tliis city ? And thab
could scarcely lay claim to the title , be
cause though many of the delegates came
from all parts ot the country , yet they
sought to have their ideas obtain in Ne
braska , tor Nebraska's good as they
styled it. These delegates were the
members of the woman suffrage conven
tion field hero several years ago. Not
long since there was to have been a con
vention of police superintendents here ,
but the thin ; ; fizzled. Several other af
fairs also flashed in tlio pan , and most re
cently , the national convention of Platt-
deiitsiihors , failS ingloriously with but a
handful of delegates. Why is thisV Do
you think the matter is worth looking
into ? " ,
No Kvldonco Against Tracy and Ills
Companions Ho Wanted Whlnky. <
Tracy , Langley and Goodin , the men
arrested on suspicion of 'having some
thing to doyitii the street car robbery
of Monday night , are still in jail. No
eliminating uvidcnco lias been discov
ered against them. Even tlio identifica
tion of the btreet car driver , Peterson , is
weak and far from absolute. Judge
Stenborsj said this morning that ho did
not feel justified in filing against thorn a
complaint for the robbery. From nil
present appearances the charge would
lull through and the city might have a
suit for false imprisonment on its bauds.
Ono of the prisoneis , James 'Iracoy , is
almost a total wreck from drink. In
fact , sine o his incarceration Wednesday
nioniinir , ha has suffered from n slight at
tack of delirium troniens. A heavy dose
of whisky brought him around all right
again. Tlio dose was given him by order
ot Judio Stcnborg , who sent out and procured -
cured a largo bottle of whisky. The fiery
fluid was handed to Tracoy through the
bars. Ho jumped at it like a wild beast ,
and running buck to the rear of the cell
bwallowcd half of it at ono gulp.
"Hand that bottle to mo now ! " 'de
manded the judge after Tracy had taken
the bottle from his lips ,
"Oh , judge , lot mo keep it , " whimpered
the inebriate , clinging to the bottle nor-
"You'll bo Intoxicated in half an
"No I won't , " replied Tracy , "I'll keep
it wrapped up in a blanket and only take
n small swallow at a time , "
He was allowed to keep the whisky ,
and has been quiet ever since.
Yesterday afternoon Judge Stenborg
released the 1111114 from the charge pre
ferred against him.

Dissett uud 13ocrs , tlae men accused of a
diabolical crime on the person o'f a young
man near Corning , Atjams county , la. ,
and who were nrrcsturt Wednesday and
sought to bo rcleose.dnm a writ v f haheas
corpus by Judge Wnfcoly , wont to Council
Uluirs Wednesday tusht ami gave bonds in
the sum of $1,000 to answer to the charge
of maiming and disfiguring at the next
term of the district conrtin Adams county.
Bissett was arrested in Folk county in
this state , where ho claims to have
resided during the past four years. Beers
is Ins son-in-law and has lived in this city
for some months. Both claim apd assert
that they can prove their residence hero
at tlio time of the commission of the al
leged crimo. Immediately after giving
bond , Beers returned to this city and Bis-
sett wont to his homo in Polk county.
Sheriff Bcrgan says that the friends of
Bissott have known him to reside where
ho now lives and at tlio time of the com
mission of the alleged barbarity , and
Beers likewise claims to be nblo to prove
an nlibi. The mysterious part of the busi
ness is that the young man deformed said
nothing about it at the time of the com
mission , waiting until the grand jury
meeting a short time ago. It would
seem , strange , however , that ho would
falsely accuse lunoeunt people of the
crime to save guilty ones.

Yosterdas morning the folowing entries
made upon the register at the Millard :
"Oliver Ames , 2d boston , " and "Geo. L.
Pcabody , Boston. " These wore pretty
high-sounding names in the not distant
past , and , bccau.se of that fact , were
siiflioiont to arouse the curiosity of a BIK :
reporter as to who were the bearers of
them at the present time. And
the curiosity was satislied. Geo. L.
Peabody is a youn < r man twenty-two
years ot age , regular , pleasant features ,
light blond mustache in its incipient
stages , and a voice singularly sonorous
for u young man of his build. He is a
distant relative of the world-renowned
philanthropist after whom he is named.
Oliver Ames , is of tin ? .same ago , a head
taller , a great deal heavier , with ti kindly ,
yet not so intelligent or attractive set of
features as those of Peabody. lie is the
son of Fred Ames , one of the present
directors of the Union Pacific. Botii

James O'Brien , late driver of the hook
and ladder truck was met yo > terdaymorn- !
ing by a Bui : reporter. He said he wanted
tomake aSstatemeiit with reference to that
made by Marshal Butler concerning the
fire on the iid of July. "Butler
claims , " lie said , "that 1 was drunk on
that day and nearly upset Iho truck , and
came near killing two .men. I want to
say that I never made a nicer run in my
life , and that I wasnotdrunkat that time.
I have been drivjng in this depurlment
now between sixteen and seventeen
years , and in all that time 1 have missed
but two fires when I was on duty. Does
that prove that I havu been a drunkard ?
I have never had an accident and nnvcr
broke a truck or injured n horse. I had
ono team for ten years. Except for age
when sold , tliov were just as
sound as when I first held the reins over
them. Talk about breaking trucks , if
you want to know who are the men that
break the apparatus , get Butler to show
you what carts have the repairs made
upon thorn and sec how much they cost ,
too. " _

The- Nebraska Telephone company
have ordered all the material for a new
air flue to Ashland. It follows that now
staked out by the U. & M. road , and will
shorten the distance by wire between
Omaha and that city by about sixteen
miles. The old wires run in a zig-zag
direction , taking in Papillion , Spring
field , Louisville and South Bend , and is
about forty-four miles in length , while
that o f the proposed line is but , twenty-
eight The line will bo completed bolorc
The line on the old route was the or
dinary iron one , which occasions quite an
amount of resistance , and has always
made it a ditlleult matter to establish
connection by means of it with the coun
try contiguous to Lincoln. The now wire
will bo of copper of numberlwiilvegaugo ,
which will readily enable people in the
territory mentioned to talk as uasjly with
Omaha ns Omaha can with Council Bluffs.
Next year , the now line will be extended
to Lincoln , and the communication then
will bo even more easy between tins city
and outside points.

T. Call Boxes.
The American District Telegraph com
pany is about to replace all its old
call boxes with others , which contain a
recent patent , and which will be of ex
ceeding importance to patrons. Hereto
fore after a call it has required frequently
as long as half an hour to close the wire
opened. The wires of the system arc con
tinuous , that is , going and coming to the
oflieo , instead of being grounded , asj in
the ordinary telegraph circuit. The in
vention in question , and a very simple
one it is. has the ell'ecf of automatically
"grounding" the wiiv when open , thus
establishing the circuit , the same as with
the telegraph , and enabling every caller
to establish immediate connection with
the oflieo. Thu now device is to bo placed
in position as rapidly as possible and
will do away with a great deal of the an
noyance to which patrons have all along
