Milton Nobles , the character actor and
comedian , whoso name has long been
associated with "Tho Plmmlx , " will ap
pear at Boyd's opera house to-morrow
night in his latest successful play , "Lovo
and Law. " This paper has always rec
ognised in Milton Nobles an actor of in
telligence , and has given him credit for
having achieved fame aud fortune in his
profession by force of individual ability.
It therefore affords ns double satisfactio'n
to note that in "Lovo and Law" Mr.
Nobles lias produced a play worthy of
himself and his line company. It is a
better drama , in point of literary merit ,
constructive skill and sustained interest ,
than any melodrama , native or imported ,
produced in this country for years.
"Love and Law" will bo repeated at the
matinee Saturday afternoon and in the
evening. "The Pha-nix" will bo pro

A Frightful Acoltlont.
A distressing nml fatal accident oc-
cuircd about ii-.iio o'clock last night at the
residence of C. W. Finn , 2320 llaruoy
street. Mrs. Alice Titcomb , who oc
cupies a room at the residence ,
was engaged in her room , when
by some accident she knocked the
lamp from her table. The oil
from the broken lamp ignited
and flamed up , setting lire tea
a loose wrapper wlneli the lady was
wearing at tjm time. The light , inlhnn-
mable material broke into a hla/.o that
almost instantly enveloped the lady , who
gave one agoui/.ing scream anil rushed
down the stairwuvund out into the street.
Her cry aroused Air. and Mrs. Finn and
Mr. Horace Newman , who resides at the
adjoining house. Mrs. Titcomb throw
herself upon her face as soon ns she
reached the street , thus partly smother
ing the ihimcs. Mr. Newman
was tlio lirst to reach her
and , calling for some ono to
bring a blanket with which to smother
the mimes , commenced tearing the burn
ing clothes from the lady. Some one
rushed to the rescue with a blanket which
was wrapped around Mrs. Titcomb
finally extinguishing the llames. The
unfortunate lady "was picked up in
the blanket and removed to her
room and medical attendance sum
moned. Drs. Stone ami Preston soon ar
rived and took charge of the lady. It
was found that her injuries were of a
very fatal nature. The flesh was
almost. entirely burned oil'of
her arms , while her body was burned to
n crisn. Her face was fortunately not
all'eeted by the cruel llames. Sfio lin
gered in great agony until about four
o'clock this morning when she died de
spite all that could bo done for her. Her
remains have been removed to the core
ner's olliee. but no inquest will bo held.
Mrs. Titcomb is u young married
lady who has been spending the sum
mer in Omaha in the absence of her
husband , who is in east. She
has made many friends hero who
will deeply mourn the sad and tragic
ending of her young life. The time of
the funeral has not yet been decided
MK. nuitmcic's ACCOUNT.
Among the witnesses to the sad affair
were Edward Taylor , a brother of Mrs.
Titcombs' and , f. E. . Burdick , a draughts
man for Henry Voss , the architect.
These gentlemen were visiting with Mrs.
Titcomb last evening , and in trying to
extinguish tlio llamas in thn ladies' cloth
ing , had their hands badly burned. Hoth
of them will bo laid up for several weeks.
Mr. Taylor , the brother of the unfortu
nate victim , is completely prostiated ,
partly from tlio shock caused uy thn ter
rible death ot his sister , and partly from
the injuries received , which were of a
more painful character than those re
ceived by Air. Burdick.
The latter was seen to-day m his room
in Crcighton block , and gave the follow
ing version of the affair :
l'Last evening , " ho said , "Mr. Taylor
wont up to call on his sister , Mrs. Tit-
comb , and I accompanied him We spent
the evening in.xpieasant .conversation.
About 10 o'clock/'wc got up to go and
wore about to leave when the dresser on
which the lamp was setting was saddcnly
moved to ono side. The lamp was thrown
to the lloor , exploding instantly. In a
moment the room seemed to "bo filled
with a mass of llamo. We started to ex
tinguish it by stamping it out and nearly
had the lire under control , when Mrs ,
Titcomb knelt down and commenced to
smother the flames with her dress ,
which wasj made of light , inllammable
material. In a moment she was _ all alirc.
I turned about , saw her condition , and
realized that her condition was a perilous
one. Hcforo I could find anything to
wrap her in , she ran out into the hall , and
with ono bound jumped do\yn stairs into
her brother's arms , on the first lloor. Ho
did his best to tear the bla/.ing clothing
from her , and I assisted him. I tore oil'my
coal , which was made of light material ,
and threw it around her. but that had
little or no elfect. Mrs. Titcomb ran out
into the yard , anil there wo succeeded in
tearing oil'more of the blazing clothing.
She rushed into the street , where the gra
ders had been at work and commenced to
roll over in the dirt. Uy this time , tlio
flames wore almost owt , and were finally
extinguished by means of u blanket
which someone brought. Mrs. Titcomb
was then taken into the house rind placed
in the doctor's care. Siio was conscious
at first , and wo had strong hopes that she
would recover. Toward the last , how
ever , she became unconscious. "
Some idea of the unfortunate lady's in
juries can be gained when it is stated that
nor whole body was so badly burned
from the ankles up to her shoul
ders , that the doctor could not in
sert a hypodermic noodle under tiio pkin
for the purpose of injecting morphine to
ease the pain , because ho could not find a
single spot that was not charred to a
Mrs. Titcomb's husband is chief en < ri-
neer of the Capo Cod canal , and has been
informed by telegraph of the sad ullalr.
The body has been embalmed awaiting
Mrs. Titcomb's dress catnhing ( ire at
tracted the attention of nearly everyone
in the house , and but for the heroin ef
forts of Miss Jennie Webb , who remained
behind and extinguished the ! lamc.s in tlio
room , the building might have burned to
the ground ,

The friends of James Lee , brother of
Dr. E. W. Lee , of this city , will regret to
learn that lie recently mot with an acci
dent on an Ogallalu ranch , which all but
proved fatal. Ho was engaged in roping
a steer , when his ior.se , a liory , half-
broken steed , roaroU and fell. Unfortu
nately Leo fell directly under the horse ,
and while no bones were broken ho re
ceived internal injuries of n complicated
nature , concussion of the brain and
spir.e , For a time his life was despaired
of , but ho rallied aud is now on the high
road to recovery. Dr. Robert wont out
to Ogallala and accompanied the unfor
tunate to his homo in Randolph , N. \ ' .
Hero is under the care of his brother , Dr.
Lee , assisted by Dr. ( Robert. His chances
for recovery are good.

diaries Ogden , chairman ot the com
mittee , appointed to select delegates to
tlm state convention reported the follow
ing names : ( ieorge K Pritchett , Juluis

James McArdlo and Charles Nober.
The "harmony" that had given evi
dence of loosening its hold npun the as
sembled statesmen vanished entirely
when C. II. Brown arose and
moved to amend the committee's
report by substituting the following
names : A. .1. Popplotou , J. Megeath ,
Cyrus Morton. Eli Johnson , ( Jeorge W.
Doano , John W. Creighton , Henry Lud-
dington , C. LutC. . V. ( Jallaghor , A.

Mr. lirowii said lie had no personal
motive in making the motion. The con
vention had met not to suuservo the in
terests of any person or any faction , but
the interests ot the party as a whole. The
men nominated by him were of high
character as gentlemen and democrats ,
men who stand above factions'and have
the power to give the party an impetus
that will send it forward until its banner
shall float over the capital of the state.
" 1 ask , " cried the exponent of the
"slotter" house democracy , growing
eloquent , "that men of character be sent
to represent the democracy of the
grandest county of the state. 1 ask a
calm consideration of the names I have
presented. Take these men and yon
settle all warring factions. If you do not
you will leave the democracy of Douglas
county in tlio same condition that it now
is , with all its factions intact. "
"Do you intend by your remark to im
peach the democracy of tlio me.n who
have been selected by the committcey"
yelled the ( Jreek editor of the mayor's
organ , who was a proxy delegate.
"No , sir , " replied Mr. Brown , "but the
names I have mentioned will lift the dem
ocracy of Douglas county to an atmos-
phhre that yours can not. "
"Speaking to the point , " said Mr. Morrissey -
rissoy , " it is just a question whether the
convention will name the delegates se
lected by a committee of live , chosen by
the convention , or will it name the dele
gates chosen by one man , and , as I take
it , in his own interests. "
Mr. Brown replied that he claimed it a
privilege to name tlio representation of
the pure democracy of Douglas county ,
and ask that they bo selected to stand in
the state convention and voice the senti
ments of the democrats of Omaha and
Mr. Ogden then got on the lloor and
replied to the charges of Mr. Brown. He
asserted that the names of the delegates
had been taken without reference to the
members belonging to any particular fac
tion. They had been chosen because
they were men who would attend the
state convention. Many of the men
named by Mr. Brown had not been near
the primaries , and the majority of them
would not attend the state convention if
they were named. Of the men named by
the committee there were Urown men as
well as Boyit men. "H comes witli ill
grace , " said Mr. Ogden by way of a
clincher , "for Mr. Brown who pretends
to bo kicking against a faction to bring
in a factional list himself. "
"Will these men named by the com
mittee attend the state convention , " in
nocently asked Mr. Windspeur.
"They will , sir , " replied Mr. Ogden.
"You said , sir. " returned Mr. Wind-
spear , "that you itad not talked with
these men , and did not know to what
faction they belonged. How do you
know that they will attend the conven
tion if you have not talked with
them ? "
Mr. Ogden's explanation to the effect
that lie had been " 1 .formed" that tlio
men would go to the state convention
was drowned by cries of "question ! "
"question ! " A vote was taken aud Mr.
Brown's amendment lost. The report of
the committee was then adopted.

and none but those who hail been hon
ored with invitations admitted to the
hall. This rule , it is understood , is to bo
studiously enforced during the present
season , no matter what prleo of admis

An Idea of Wlmt It Is Going
Architect Mendelssohn said to-day that
work on the new hotel which is to bo
erected on the south side of Farnam
street between Ninth and Tenth , would
commence in about two weeks. The
plans have been drawn up and all that
remains to be done now is the awarding
of the contracts. The plans which have
been drawn tip by Mendelssohn & Fisher ,
the well known architects , contcmuhito
a hotel building liner than anything now
in this city. The structure will be HW feet
square and six stories high. It
will be built of St. Louis pressed brick
with terra cotta trimmings of the most
ornate design. There will be over 200
rooms in tlio building. The rotunda
will bo a largo and roomy one , and will
connect by winding stairs with a magni
ficent system of promenades and
parlors. it is the intention of

ments in the hotel , and make it in all
respects thoroughly first class. The
structure will cost in the neighborhood
