A New Trick.
A novel species of confidence panic wns
reported at police headquarters yesterday ,
the victim being Mr. C. C. Field who
owns a candy store near Twenty-fourth
nnd Cntning streets. That gentleman
while in Ins store Monday night , was ap ,
proachcd bv a tall , neatly dressed
etrangor , who proceeded lo lake Mr.
Field into his confidence nt once. He
said thai ho litid jusl mot a young lady
friend whom ho desired to treat , hut
found that he had left his pocket book
at homo. Would Mr. Held kindly lend
him one dollar , taking ns secuniy his
gold watch and chain ? That gentleman
is nothing if not obliging , and he
promptly opened his cash box and
produced the dollar. The fellow
Instead of handing over his watch threw
down an old brass ring , look Iho money
nnd galloped through the door. Mr.
Fluid followed him and overtook him at
the corner of Saunders nnd Cumlng
Blreels. A short anil warm encounter
followed , which resulted in Ihe conlt-
deuce man being knocked down by a ler-
title right-hander from Mr. Field. The
fellow jumped up quickly , however , and
was soon on his feel again. He started
on"at n rapid gall , and niiitle his escape in
Hie darkness. lie has not been seen
ulnce. but as his description is pretty
wall known it is probable lhat he will not
try the operation on upper Cumlng street
Dan J Ross , the -sprinter , is slill be-
f- hind the bars of Ihe city juil , awailing a
i hearing on the charge of disposing of
t of mortgaged property. To a repor-
r tor yesterday he staled lhat ho did not
I know what ho hail been arrested for ,
I though ho did not pretend lo bo entirely
i innocent. Ho said that he expected lo
* have Ihe charges compromised.
i It ( lavrlopcdycstcrday that in addition
to'being charged with disposing ot Iho
, mortgaged property of Hill iSs Young ,
Ross has another and far more serious
1 charge lo answer. Sonic weeks ago ho
was in the employ of Duncan & Wallace ,
the piumblng linn , as their book
keeper. Ho forged an order for
fS5 on N. B. Falconer , the
clrv goods man , feigning the
firm name of Duncan & Wallace to the
order. This order ho gave to Mrs. Ross ,
telling her lo go down nnd get i Is value
in goods. She did M > , and wnile she was
selecting Ihe goods a boy was sent over
to Duncan & Wallace's to see if the or
der was correct. No one happened to bo
in at the lime except Uoss , who of course
assured the boy that the order was good.
When Messrs. Duncan & Wallace re
ceived the bill they were astounded and
, at once charged Ross with forgery. They
were compelled later to pay the bill and
it is probable that a prosecution for for
gery will grow out of the case.
He Claims That tlio Sale of the Symil-
cnto Property Was LiCRalt
Montlay evening Mr. A. H. Swan of
the South Omaha Land syndicate left
for the east. Ho was accompanied by
Mr. Boslor of Carlisle , Pa. , the gentleman
who , it is claimed , lias purchased the
property in Soutu Omaha belonging to
r the syndicate. Mr. Bos.lcr was met on
f the train by a Ben reporter , and grac
iously an-swered a number of ques-
ons propounded to him.
"I am going home"ho said , "to Car
lisle , 1'a. , but 1 shall return before long. "
"Has the question of your purchase of
the limit syndicate property been agreed
to by the minority of the trustees ? "
"It lias not. But that does not make
any difference. I have nought the prop
erty in question , or at least Mr. Swan has
sold it to me , and I intend to stand on
my contract. "
' 'Is that the contract which it is alleged
Mr. Swan was authorized to make with
the 'Scotch syndicate ? ' "
"No , sir. Mr. Swan was never author
ized to sell to the Scotch syndicate any
more than to you or me. Since I have
been hero , 1 have looked up the resolu
tion which authorized him lo make Iho
Bale , and Ihere is not a word in it which
epccifics Iho Scotch syndicate as the
party to whom the land must bo sold. I
nave taken legal advice on the subject
and am informed the sale is a legal one
and 1 propose to stand bj the agree
ment. "
"Who are your associates ? "
"Their names I do not now desire to
mention. "
"How much ready cash were you to
pay ? "
"The full amount , $700,000 , "
"Were you required to make improve
ments ? "
"Yes , but 1 do not care to speak about
that now. "
Mr. Hosier , it will bo perceived , enters
a Hat contradiction to" the story of the
minority of the board of trilslccs ,

II ( Swan , Wm I'axton , Thomas Svvobc ,
Frank Murphy. C. W. Hamilton , Peter
K. Her nnd James M Woolworth , trus
tees of the South Omaha Land syndicate ,
from selling the property owned by the
same. The petition sels forth that the
association was formed May 7th , 1883 ,
for the ourposc of buying and selling
laud , and that after tlioy had purchased
about 1,800 acrcssouth of Iho city of Om
aha , they issued bonds to the amount of
$1-IOO,000. Of these , Rogers tookJfOO.OOO ,
which gave him one-twenty-eiglith Inter
est in the association. The cost of tlio
land unon which thcso bonds were is
sued was but fcUT.OOO. For the laud sold
and others sources , the syndicate have
received bills receivable to the amount
of $175,000 , , and slill retain 1,000 acres of.
the land bought. The total assets of
chc syndicate are $1,500,000. , It is
thinned that on the 2-td of July , by
virtue of authority , alleged to have neon
obtained from Iho trustees , executed a
contract of sale lo J II. Bosler. of Car
lisle , 1'a. , all of the property of the syndi
cate , including the notes mentioned for
Iho sum of $750,000. One third of this
sum was to be in cash , and the remainder
to be paid on the Istof January , 1837. On
the 2 th of July this alleged contract of
sale was ratified by a majority of the
trustees , namely , A. W. Slmw.W. A Pax-
ton. P. E. Her and J. M. Woolworth , thn
said Bosler being , it is claimed , associ
ated with the above members for the pur
pose of carrying out and consummating
the fraud. The plaintiffs further claim
that the price at which the land is sold is
inadequate to satisfy the rightful interest
of the bondholders , and that the scheme
to soil is one of deceit and fraud , and if
carried out will lead to the irreparable
injury ot tlio petitioner. For these reas
ons he petitions that any and all of the
trustees above mentioned be enjoined
from in any manner attempting the sale
of the property mentioned.

Men Who Have Nothing Else to 'Jo Bat
Tind Faalt ,
A Few Facts for the Thouchtful nnd
KarsecltiR OUCH to Think Over
Tlio Heal GHtatc Boom.
It takes all kinds of people to make a
World , and there is probably no one class
more largely represented than are the
cranks. There are cranks on every sub
ject , and in large numbers too , They
arc generally men who are perfectly sat
isfied with tlipmsclfos nnd Iheir jutlg-
menl , but are dissatisfied with every one
else. Omaha , ll is sad to say , comes in
lor her share of thcso cranky mortals.
They stand upon the street corners , con-
gregalo In every public house and place ,
and do iiulhing but find fault with every
thing that is said or done.
There probably is no one thing at pros-
cut that the cranks Hildas much fault ,
with as with the real estate boom which
Omaha is enjoying nt this time. They
shake their heads , knit their brows and
say , in a tone which is intended to carry
conviction with ils every vibration , Ft
can't last , there is bound to be a big
break before long. For the past four or
livn years they have been saying the
same thing , and notwithstam ing their
predictions the price of real estalo has
sleadily advanced , and it is now worth
150 per cent more than it was t\vo years
agoThey say it can't last , but it docs , and
the real estate market was never in as
healthy a condition as at present. What
reason is there for thinking it will not
continue so ? Was there over a time
When the growth of Omaha was us rapider
or substantial as now ? Was there ever a
time in the history of this city when men
in all branches of trade and manufacture
wcro as prosperous and thrifty as at
present ? Are not Omaha's stockyards
and packing houses attracting the at
tention of the entire country
and causing the investment of largo
sums of eastern capital ? Even
Chicago , that invincible city ,
looks upon Omaha's packing houses ,
stock yards and stock Interests through
the green colored goggles of jealousy.
Then , too , look at the public improve
ments , which are being made this sea
son. Mile after mile of pavements and
sewers are being put down to say nothing
of the two magnificent and costly via
ducts , which are in course of conduc
tion.All these things speak louder than words
and when the question. "Will it last ? " is
asked , it is not necessary to "read the
answer in the stars , " but take
a look around you , ride over
the city and see everywhere the
substantial public improvements , the
magnificent buildings which are being
erected , and answer for yourself. There
can be but one answer , and that is , that
it will last and not only last but the prices
of real estate will advance slill more in
the next year than it has in the yst year.
This stands to reason and tin sound
reasoning persons will see it at a glance.
In view of this fact it behooves you to se
cure some choice i real estate with the
knowledge that it will prove a paying
investment. Thn finest city property
market is " Pface"
on the to-day "Mayno
and "Orchard Hill , " both for sale by C.
E. Mayno. Lots in both these additions
are going very rapidly and it will bo to
your interest to call early. If you want
a bonanza in acre property tale a look at
"Newport , " which is also for sale by C.
E. Mayno. It is by all odds the finest
and cheapest aero property ever offered
for sale in Omaha. Call at the office of
C. E. Mayno , Real Estate and Trust com
pany , southwest corner of Fifteenth and
Farnam streets , where you will find con-
.veynnci's to _ take you out to any of the
property which is for sale.
Stray Leaves From n Reporter's
' The Union Pacific has been very un
fortunate lately in the number of its ac
cidents , " said a passenger conductor ,
yesterday. "And. I don't know where
Ihe epidemic of catastrophes is to ceaso.
But it has been pretty fortunate in that it
has had but few injured people in all its
wrecks. How they escape , is more than
I can toll. They get jammed in cabs and
cabooses , thrown from the car tops and
shaken up all through their system and
yet the train men generally have come
out without injury. It's one of the mys
teries of the business. Another thing I
can't understand is why freight trains go
to pieces so often and pabsenger trains
hardly ever got into trouble. And yet.
the latter have to use the same track , roll
over the same switches and run risks
precisely the same as the heavier trains.
It's all for the better , I expect , both for
the passengers and the road. "
"I have often heard of Kilkenny cals' "
said a Douglas street merchant last
night , "but I have never found so good
an illustration of them of late years as is
shown by tlio attitude of the B. & M. and
Union Pacific roads on the river bottoms.
One road throws a track in one direc
tion ; the other finds it out and straight
way aims 'to head iloIP by constructing
a cross line in advance of Iho oilier.
They have been playing Ihis game for
months back , and Ihe result is that the
bottoms are crowded with trucks held
down with loaded cars , which reminds
one of a Chicago depot yard. Those
tracks are run at all angles and describe
all si/.es of circles , and some of them dip
into Ihe slough and others try lo climb
up the opposite bank. The humorous
feature of the thing is thai each road
claims lo have secured its point and holds
that the other has been worsted in the
deal. "
"I believe tlio fact that Ihero is a largo
encampment of gypsies near Iho city has
somelhing to do with the largo number of
burglaries and foot-pad criminalities
which arc being committed all over the
city , " said a well known citizen to a re
porter to-day. "The gypsies , from time
immemorial , have been a restless , roving ,
thieving sot of people , and they are
pretty nurd citizens generally. 1 think
that if the marshal and his men would
drive these people a respectable distance
from this city that there would not bo go
many burglaries committed. At least it
would be uorth while lo waloh Ihoso fel
lows , "

They Must Not Drink.
Marshal Cummlugs has promulgated
an order that no policeman , while on his
boat , shall be allowed lo go inlo a saloon
for any purpose whatever except in cases
of actual necessity. This order became
necessary because several of the men
lately have been indulging freely , so
much BO , in some instances , that they
were unable to attend to their duties.
One or two of them have been discov
ered in a beastly drunk condition ,
fit subjects for a "drunk and
disorderly" fine at tl.o hands of Judge
Stcnberg. One policeman who has n
beat on North Sixteenth street was found
about three o'clock the other morning ,
lying against a lamp-post minus his hat
and coat. Ho had been robbed while in

cious thief.
