The city t'ounclltnen have unanimously
awarded the contract for putting in the
ftowcrngc system. This stop taken is
another toward busy times nml much
employment for the autumn months and
thoyear following , for with the growth
of the city scwerago must grow , and the
system once in under wnv will moan
much business for laborinjimen. Since
the night of the public mooting some two
weeks since Iho opposition to the plans
nml nets of the council in the way of
inodilications and engineering , has
greatly decreased , and it has fairly ceased
to bo a topic of street conversation , the
sentiment of the pcoplo in the city is so
generally In favor of continuing the
work without break or hlnderanco that it
has caused many who micht bo consider
doubters to full in for the improvement ,
nnd tliero has boon little talk of stopping
work through legal process of late and it
looks now a.s though the council would be
undisturbed in forwarding the sewerage
Hy.stcm. Tlio contract for the heavy work
of the .sewerage system was lot to F. A.
Korsmeyer & Co. , of this city , they being
lie lowest bidders , on a bid of $3.j40.
This contract covers sixteen miles of
which Is to bo completed on or before
January 1 , and the rest of the sixteen
miles to lie finished by Juno 1 , 1837.
The contractors who have been awarded
the contract tire safe , reliable men , who
are engaged In the plumbing and gas fit
ting business. They will commence op
erations at nn early day and give em
ployment to a largo body of men , which
will make labor plenty for some time. In
regard to tlio construction of manholes
and Hushing tanks for the sewerage sys
tem , that part of tlio work will bo rp-ad-
verti.scd and let at a future day. but if no
obstructions in the way of legal processes
are put in the city's way , the construc
tion of sewerage will be a lively business
in a short time , and one that thu laboring
classes especially will appreciate.
TIIK DISTIMIlt'TOItS OK l'ItI/.K9 ON'TllIAI , .
The county court was occupied yester
day in the trial of the Globe Cofleo and
Tea company , that has for the last ton
days ueon doing a thriving business on O
street , much lo thu discomfiture of the
dealers in those staplecommoditics in the
city. The complaint and information is
signed by two of tlio prominent grocers
in the city , John II. Nadcn and Harry A.
Tcbhotts , the complaint reciting that M.
Fisher , C. F. Nobcs , O. Lewis , T. W.
Becker , J. W. Wilson andC.Dawson , the
parties at work under tlm name of tlio
( Jloljo ColVeo and Tea campany , have
opened nnd set on toot , nnd
are now carrying on , promot
ing publicly in the city of
Lincoln , n scheme ot chance or lottery ,
and the complainants further say that
the parties are selling and exposing for
sale teas and coll'eo of same value , and
said to contain valuable prizes and gifts ,
all of which is in violation of statutes as
made ami provided. The case is being
prosooufed by Attorneys Lansing nnd
Stearns , and Caldweil aud Billingslcy
are thu counsel for the defendants. A
voluminous lot of witnesses were put up
on the stand by the prosecution to show
that it was not the goods Uought that
parties purchased , but that it was for the
.chances. The plan of work of the com
pany is to sell cans of ton and collce fora
dollar each , and have a pri/.o in each can ,
sometimes valuable and more times
worthless. Among the advertised prizes
given out are watches , diamonds , solid
gold jewelry and cold cash , and the testi
mony of tno state witnesses was all in
eflbct that they were after big prizes
moro than ten or colTeo. if a person' pur
chases a can for a dollar and tails to get
anything of value in the way of a pmo ,
the company take back the cau at half
price and give a fifty-cent chance to the
customer. This ten'ls to keep the ball
rolling , and some parties , as the testi
mony bhowed , keep up a struggle for
prizes until they had spent $20 nnd up
ward , and there they would go away
minus any tea or coffee , this tendency
going to snow that the straight groceries
played little part in the performaneo.
One of the witnesses related his experi
ence : that having heard of alike scheme
before in Hullalo , N. Y , , whore UIQ tea
and coll'eo men clcurqd up big money , ho
went into the store and let them know ho
know .their plan ofwork and the big
prolit it secured IIo was not allowed to
toll on'tho witness stand all he know of
the BnQ'alowork , but he did toll how that ,
after ho ilnid told them that ho under
stood their plans nnd they had invited
him to purchase , that ho invested with
the idea that something great would
come to him , but the tea and coflco men
were up to anull' . and ho purchased and
drew brass , and purchased again and
drew brass , and then jumped the game
anil testilied in court. The testimony of
all the prosecuting witnesses was in eifoct
that they were gambling lor diamonds
rather than buying tea and coilen , nnd
evidence was introduced to show the
quality and quantity of the said groceries
given lor a dollar. There 1ms boon u
rumbling that portended just snob an
ending as this for the ( Hobo Coll'eo nnd
Tea companv , and it Ins boon a clear
case that the grocers in the city have
looked upon the operation all the time

Boys n 1'rcsaRc of War.
Cleveland Sunday Sun : The good old
ladies are now beginning to tell us that
war is an inevitable fact of the near
future. How do they know ? Simply be
cause all , or mostly all , of the babies born
tiiis year are boys. That is an unfailing
presage of war , as every sensible think
ing man ought to know. It is , of course ,
n very good thing that we are advised of
this fact in nmulc time to trim pur sails.
Everything will go IIP that is , every
thing eatable and salable , anil we must
begin to store away and garner up at
once. The shoddy clothing manufne.-
lurors , and Iho ingenious persons who
make coffee out of peas and hard-tack
out of pine blocks , can now are to work
nt getting ready supplies for the army.
Perhaps there may bo a general exodus
to Canada when this male surplus in the
baby line becomes known , but we have
lost so many prominent citizens to the
unfortunate dominion that wo are grief-
hardened. I hope that tlio boy-baby sign
doesn't mean n civil war ; we have had
enough of that. But when the girl babies
outnumber the boys it will bo plainly un
derstood that another sort of war is
surely foretold the domestic war. This
lifo is one unending strife.

'Oh , yes , " was the confident reply ,
"thnre's nothing in hero that will burn ,

"Is it burglar-proof , too , fattier ? " con
tinued the young lady.
"Don't ' ask too many questions ,

Herald : A real robber from
the mountains and plains of the wild
west is a prisoner at the Central Police
station. He was brought in from iho An-
amoia , Iowa , penltentiarv.ycsteiday , and
will bti taken today to the penitentiary
at Albany , N. Y. His story is an inter
est in t ; one. In appearance Marion ( iam
bic for that is the name of this stage
robber is sallow-faced and pop-eyed.
Ho i.s twenty-six years old. Ho is tall ,
and will weigh between 130 and 100
pounds. According to his own comes-
sion he , witlt two others , successfully
held up a stage in Montana containing
fifteen persons , including the driver.
After the shackles had been removed
from his hands and feet , and ho had
shaken himself n little , lie looked around
with n smile , cordially greeted a number
of detectives who were looking intently
at him , nnd then calmly nsked for a
cigarette , which was given him. Ho was
then taken to a cell , where , after a few
consolatory pull's of the wood , he s-ettlcd
back on his wooden bench , and in answer
to a reporter's query said. "So you want
to know how 1 worked the racket , do
you ? Well , Hain't darin1 work , and thorn
as says it is don't know. \ \ 'y.
it's as easy , " and ho pulled
a cloud of smoke around bis
head by way of illustration. "Hut before
1 tells you everything I want you to know
that the ( turned shorill's at Doer Lodge
lied about me when they said as Low 1
had robbed nine coaches. How many
did I rob ? Well , 1 didn't rob nine by a
dttrned sight , anyhow. Now , I'm an
Illeenoy boy , born right liyar In Mont
gomery county , and I'm too elus' to hum
to have nny lies told about mo. i left
this state ton years ago , when I was but
sixteen , and 1 struck tor the west , landin *
in Montana. I knocked aroun' rounrtin'
up nnd cultin' out cattle for dill'eront
ranchmen. But I got tired and went to
minin' in Wyomin' Territory. 1 got
married thrco years after I loft tins state ,
and I've got a wife and a baby six year
old. But they don't know where 1 tun ,
an" it'.s just as good they don't ; reckon
they think 1'vo sloped. But that's none
of your business and wo won't argy Iho
matter , " as lie turned back and blow his
nose and wiped his eyes several times.
"AVhat you want is this stage business.
I got poor , had no work , and took to
drinkin' like many adurned fool afore
mo. Ono night along in July , " 82 , mo an
Tom Sheldon , Iho traitor , and Frank
Wiley was sittin' in a boo/.e joint in Deer
Lodge , when in cum a stoTlcman ,
I fnrgit his name , an' he
says. 'Boys , lot's all take a drink on me. '
Well , wo tuck it an' good many more
afpro he left us fur his fehako-down at a
friend's ' ranch. Before ho left us wo
lound onf that he was heeled heavy witn
the sDondulix an' that lie was goinc : to
take the coach fur a point lifteon miles
nway som'ers across the Reek Divide on
Thursday. This was Tuesday wo heard
this. Well , what could wo'do ? Didn't
ho have $35,000 ? An' wo wanted it. So
wo sets on our nags an' waited near the
divide fur Thursday an' the coach Sure
enough , 'long about noon the ole coach
cum nt ) tlio pass. We tethered our nags
behind a little clump of pinons an' laid
fur it. I had .1 double-barrel shotgun an'
two forty-fours , while Sheldon an' Wiley
had two Remingtons an' two Colts. I
told the boys to be steddy an * all jump
out at the same timo. Wo did it , an'
when the olc driver saw us he pulled up
without a word an' dropped the lines ; he
had bce.ii there afore an' know his busi
ness. While Wiley hold the horses me
nn' Sheldon ordore.d the passentrors out ,
an 1 stood 'cm in a line , cxcoptin' the
Avimmon folks two of 'oin. Ono feller
went fur his hip pocket , but I told him to
drop it , and ho did , quick , you bet. It
wasn't a pistol , though. It was
a pookotbookj about § 300 in it.
All of 'em was scared most nigh
to death , and the coach full of shootin'
irons at that. lint when a feller looks
down a double-barrelled shotgun and a
couple of Colts lio'll ' throw up his hands
cf ho's got sense. Wo didn't got much
about $4,000 in jewels an1 money fur ,
you see , our stockman had got drunk an'
missed connections. He cum over on the
next coach , on Sunday , an' never got
tired blowin' about the good luck whisky
brought him. had bad luck , though ,
for while I was searching n 'high ilycr'
my mask fell oil'an' ho identified me
after I was capture.d. An' that reminds
" bttid tlio "tho
mo , suddenly prisoner ,
fellow that saw my face was named Pen-
royd. i disromembcr his lirst name , an'
he was a drummer for a Chicairo wholesale -
sale clothinir house. I had his card , but
I lost it. 1 didn't take nttthin' from tlio
wimmon nnd I give back some money tea
a couple of poor devils who talked about
starvin' babies an' sich. I had to laugh
at the Chicago feller , though. He were
kid gloves , and when I cum to him I
sorter took hold his iins fur fun , when I
felt a plain gold ring. I made him take
the glove oil' and found the ring was
a pure sparkler , with the stone
turned so as to bo on the inside ot his
linger. Igot it just thosamo , thougli-.an1
when I looked into his grip I found a box
of good cigars an' a quart of the best
whisky I over tasted. I passed itaround ,
so's to make everybody spruce up like ,
Then wc.lct 'omgo.an' three months later
I was nabbed by thq sheriff's at Shedd's '
Bridges , as I told you in the start oil' .
The United States officers say I got ? 00- ,
000 from the Wells l-'nrco express , but
it's a ( turn lie ; didn't got half that , fur I
didn't rob it , " and ho winked knowingly
at Ids listeners.
"Tliis Chicago follor , Ponroyd. is n
queer cuss , though , " added tho.highwny-
man , rollcotively , Ho told the judge that
ho was an export on voices , an' said ho
was sure I robbed him , even if ho was
mistaken about my fuco. Now , I road
sommors that In a.000,000 voices there
ain't no five alike , yet this cunning cuss
rapped to mo as soon as ho heard mu
talk. Funny , ain't it ? If yon can tiiut
Ponroyd tell him to cum an' see me , I'd
like tobhake hands with him. "
When nsked what ho considered pay
ing work at stage robbing ho replied
that , taking everything into considera
tion , ho should think $10,000 or $15,000
would bo about right.
Marshal Desmond , who will to-day
tnUo Gamble to Albany , says the prisoner
is a desperate follow , and that ho was
long sought for before captured. The
specific charge against him is thu riilling
of United States mail matter and jeopardizing
ardizing the life of the carriers , llola

the borough of bldCliester. was executed
the intrepid outlar , Captain .lames Fitz-
patrlek , the terro1 of the whig revolu

Captain Fitzaslio , railed himself , was
a blacksmith by tudo. He was a patriot
volunteer early inl770 with the "Flying
Camp" of CheMoicounty , which wont to
participate in tls disastrous battle of
lAMig Island. He might have taken not

disobedience chaujed llio current of his
future actions. Uesertlng the patriot
cause ho swam tin Hudson river , crossed
New Jersey and reached Philadelphia ,
homeward bound o Cheslcr county. Ho
Was arrested in tils city nnd safely quar

promising to remw his military lifo ho

Subsequently , Miou the victorious llrit-
ish , under ( Sen. Ibwe , look po cssion of
Philadelphia , Fit patrlek was there in
the role of captan , with a lioutonunt of
his own choice mined Mordocal Doherty.
With a small connand they terrorized
their old ncighbnwhig.s in Chester
county. Their hindquarters were often
tit "HtuuK pass , " iear the present town
of Coatsvillo. Tin tux collector seems
to have been the Articular object of Fit/ '
ntVoetions. It is related that on a certain
foraging cxpedltim , falling in with two
of these \yorthius irmcd with muskets ,
and entering into onvorsatlon with him ,
they Inquired if ho had ever seen this

him a lessen. On tearing this Fits ; drew
out his pistols , giyiigthointo understand
ho was the indmlunl in question , nnd
would be obligci to them to fork out
their money and \iluables. The boast
ful captain was foeed to resign his mili
tary swords nnd pitols , bis queue was
cropped clos-c , ant , boiug tied to a tree ,
lie was severely lligged. On represent

old ballad says :

These daring nes of lawlessness led
the wings of Chest r to combine in an
cll'ort to capture tin outlaw , and to this
end they oflercd a nward of $1,000 for
his head. Several vigilant committees
wore on the hunt aid meetings were held
to devise plans to jring- the outlaw to
justice. Fitzpatriec himself put in "Ui
incog , appearance t ono of those mce't-
ings at a tavern ui the West Chester
road. A militia uiptnln was holding
forth in a gran.dilwinent style , dilating
on the eminent , plcisuro it would afl'ord
him to moot Ca/taii / Fitx. face to face that
lie might haiut him'1 over. The outlaw
watched his chanctfand when the. noisy
captain was alone le approached him and
btiid he could hpve.his wishes crntlticd
relative to Captainl'itK. Ho was" invited
to a neighboring nom to sco the outlaw
face to face. On cilering the room Fit/
locked the dooi and leveled a
candlestick at the dumbfounded
captain's headsiying ' : "Young man ,
you want to see Cap. FitI am that
person. I'll troubb you for your watch
and the money .yo | may have about you. "
With hands tiedwith his own handker
chief behind his bnpk.tho captain was told :
"You may gd bick to j-our friends and
tell them that yui wanted to bee Capt.
Fitx and you have seen him. " The pro
clamations of tlio executive county com
mittee ofl'ering a pizc for Ins head made
him a target for concealed marksmen ,
yet ho escaped , apiearing oven in broad
daylight in Kennat square , with pistols
and dagger , at the "Unicorn , " the noted
tavern ot the tiiiB. It is said that the
people made wa } for him as he
passed , but these must have been
tor.v friends , wlo were very nu
merous and inlhcntial thereabouts.
Never was it said that Fit/ molested
a tory , robbed a poor peddler , or insulted
a female. This broignt him into favor
able recognition wtli all young ladies
who sympathized vith King George , and
they regarded the jutlaw as a hero. On
Aug. 23. 1778 , ho cilled at the house of
Capt. McAfee , nn u-clent whig , residing
near Castle rock , aromautic spot , where
the West Cheater road crosses Crum
creek .about ten miles from Chester. In
quiring if William McAfco lived there ,
ho was given to underhand politely that
he was talking to tke son , Robert ( Cap
tain ) McAfee , Ilcjnning "I am Capt
Fitzpatriek , " he was politely invited by
the muscular McAfee to tea. Ht/patricic
gave him to understand there wore four
ot them ; that ho came to levy a con
tribution of 150 , and , drawing pistols ,
demanded the needful.
Espying a handsome pair of buckled
shoes on young McAfee , ho was not long
discussing their utility. Thwarted in not
finding tlio money after ransacking all
the drawers , or rather compelling Cap
tain McAfee to do so , ho imposed as a
penalty , that McAfco should join him in
the next excursion.
Ordering tlio four helpless ones-

Sir. Warner Is interested In Oennral Ar

that any man should be allowed to die under
