avenue is indeed a beautiful one , and
those in other parts of the city who are

The police have been on the hunt for

being concerned in the recent burglaries
hero. An attempt was made the other
night to butglari/.o the K. C. house , kept
by Mr. Gibson , but the fellows wore soon
and fled. They were traeked down the
railway track , andOfllcorO'Hrlon , learning -
ing the direction they had taken , started
in pursuit. About twelve miles south of
the city , near Ur Wall's place , ho came
up to thorn on the railway track , and
called on them to surrender. They did
BO apparently willingly , and the officer
was thrown off his guard by the evido"t
ease with which the arre.st was made. Ho
started to got out Ids shackles to place on
the wrists of the follows , when the tailor
one of the two , standing behind the
other , pulled a icvolvcr and aiming over
his companion's shoulder , tried to shoot
O'Hrien. The weapon missed lire , and
the otllccr pulling out his gun , attempted
to tire it , but it mihsed too. Then the
colored men started to run , one of them
tiring at the olllcor , who by this tiimi had
got action with his revolver , and as ho
chafed thorn ho fired four shots. The follows -
lows weto running for the thick brush
alongside of thu track and one of thorn

in the dense thicket with his comrade.
Itoth men succeeded in getting away , the

The republican congressional conven
tion yesterday was in ono respect a tame
tffair , in others very enthusiastic. It was
conceded that the result would bo the
unanimous rcnomination of Major Ly-
man , and Mich proved to bo the fact.
Not a ballot was taken , and no other
nnmt ! ever hinted. It was a foregone
conclusion , bill while the convention
lacked the interest which ari-cs from a
contest , it w.is , novel tliclcss , very cnthu-
sla'-tie , much more so than most conven
tions whose result is so clearly foreseen.
Colonel Sapp called the convention to
order. Judge Tnbbs , of Mills county ,
was then "elected as temporary chair
man , hut he was excused on account of
temporary illness. Colonel Stockeit , of
Harrison county , was then selected. Mr.
Davis , of Shelby , and C. L. Hyde , of
Harrison , were chosen secretaries.

A Cliautuufuii | Scheme.
Rev. Mr. Van Orsdell , pastor ot the
Baptist church nt Ottawa , Kan. , is in
the city spending a few days of his sum
mer vacation. He is largely interested in
Sunday school assemblies. A few years
ago such an assembly was organized at
Ottawa , and it is now proposed to effect
a similar organization hero. There arc
in the United States eighteen such an
nual assemblies , and it is desired that
another should be established in Council
Bluffs and ono at Davenport. The plan
adopted at Ottawa and other places has
proved so successful that it is the one
proposed here. A duly incorporated or
ganization is formed , with a capital stock
of $80,000. The shares are S5 each , but
only ijl is paid in on each shaio , the rest
to bo called in as necessity requires.
Tims far theie lias been no necessity lor
making any assessments beyond the orig
inal $1 on each share. In older that it
m a j' not bo a monoy-mukine scheme no
dividends arc declined , but whatever
surplus there may bo is used for further
ing the interests of tlio assembly. The
assembly holds for two weeks each sum
mer. A tabernacle is erected and other
conveniences provided , and the very best
instructors and lecturers secured. Men
of national reputation are engaged , and
dining the two weeks every afternoon
and evening there arc entertainments
nnd lectures , concerts , etc. All topics
nro embraced , and the culture offered is
in music , literature , science and philoso
phy. The most remarkable success has
attended the enterprise. The terms are
placed within the reach of all , only 25
cents a day being charged for tickets , or
sfl.50 for the season. Many of the lec
tures and cntcitainmcnts are by
men whom it would cost 70
cents or $1 to hoar under ordinary
circumstances. The fact that thousands
crowd in where otherwise there would be
but hundiods. is the secret of thollnanelal
success , which enables the organization
to secure such talented persons , Besides
the gatherings , which are of general pub
lic inteiest , t1 ro are also classes organ
ized for instruction , and a regular course
of study , these passing the examination
receiving suit bio diplomas certifying to
that fact. The plan is not experimental ,
having boon tried and proved successful
olsowhoro. Tlio peculiar location of
Council Bluffs has caused tlds point to bo
looked upon as one peculiarly favorable
for such an assembly. So many railways
center here , that It could bo easily
reached. At Ottawa , Kas. , there have
been 40,000 people , drawn in from the sur
rounding country to attend the assembly
there Ills a great thing for the eity and
for the railways. The railways there
built the original tabernaolo for the assem
bly , and have eonfibuted liberally since.
Thorn has been realised there n surplus
of $10,000 , over and above nil expenses ,
so that there is an abundant fund , for
securing still greater attractions. Besides
the financial advantage to a city having
such an assembly , there Is the still greater
advantage of the moral and intellectual
influence which emanates from such an
ontoruriso. Council Bluffs has the most
beautiful glens and bluffs , natural nmpli-
theaters , and pleasant tenting places ,
with Us railway advantages , it seems
that such an enterprise could bo made an
even gieater success horn than in almost
any other place in the west.
A conference xvas held last evening at
the pavilion , and the matter was talked
oyor informally. It will doubtless result
in the organisation of an association for
pushing for ward the enterprise , so that
aiuther season such nn assembly can beheld
held hero. The opening one might not
bo so great a success as these later , but
it seems from the very start that it is

pro\.cmcnls In progress and the beautify
ing process which is goinpon more mark -
odtv than over now that.tho grounds are
supplied with water. Those' who have
lots can now secure the needed water
supply easily , instead of having to bring
il fiom homo by the jugful , or beg a lit
tle from some of the neighboring wells
As a result the grass and the flowers are
given the needed moisture , nnd the hit-
owners seem to bo taking more pride in
keeping up the appearance of the place.
U here are too in uiy neglected lots ,
though , even with tiio additional con
vonicnce. Some are owned by residents
of tliis city , and for thom tlure scorns no
reasonable excuse It costs little time or
money to have the sod kept closely
clipped , and the foliage trimmed. Many
of the neglected lots are owned by non
residents , and it seems that most of those
could make some arrangement with the
sexton , or othur party huro , to look after
their hits , and keep them mown and cared
for during tht-lr absence. A trifling sum ,
placed in the hands of the sexton , or some
jiorson here , would cause the lots to bo
c.tred for properly Nothing seonis more
heartless than a cemetery lot , whore rest
the remains of these who once dear , ne
glected , grown up to weeds , as though
those gone before had boon entirely for
gotten , The neglected lots do much to
destroy the bounty of the cemetery as a
whole , and the cause of complaint should
quickly ho done away with.
The cemetery association has recently
added to the grounds by the purchase of
lots extending clear to iho street on the
Oakland avenue side. This strip is to Do
made into a beautiful entrainv to the
grounds , and will not bo divided Into
lots. The land purchased some time ago
on the other side of tlio cemetery is being
cleared up , and some of it will bo soon
laid oil'into lots , There is now in the
uunmtery about fifty acres , and it cer
tainly is as beautiful a site as could bo
cho en. The scenery is wonderful , and
with slight improvements it can bo made
one of thu most beautiful cemeteries in
the west. The roadway being opened
along tlio ridge of ho bluff to the line of
the new part of the cemetery affords
some of the finest views of the city and
surrounding country of any to be had
hero. One point in particular presents a
better view Of the city and of the river ,
with Omaha on the other shoie. than any
one point in Fairmonnt Park oven. At
this point it is proposed to lay oil a lot for
the vcteians. and the Grand Army of the
Republic will plant their cannon at the
corners and otherwise adorn it. The
work of clearing up the hitherto unused
portions of the cemetery is going on
daily , and now roads and other improve
ments will be made so fast as practicable.
