HASTINGS , Nob. , Oct. 12 [ Correspon
dence of the BIK. ; ] Saturday before last
the democrats held their coiinly conven
tion. David Kwing was nominated for
, commissioner and A. M. Gooding for
county attorney. A resolution favorable
to Van Wyck was also passed.
The republican convention for the
nomination of commissioner and county
, /uHornoy / was huld last Saturday. M.
iJondingor was nominated for county
commissioner and K. M. Johnson for
county , attorney. The candidates for the
bommissionomhip are both good men and
'between the t\v > it will bo nip anil luck.
.JMr , Gooding will be , beyond all doubt ,
. our county attorney ; the puoplu want no
.jjnan . who is "tlnekr' with both the town-
/iite anil railroad gang , no mailer what
"Jiis politics. Mr. Gooding is by all odds
. .the best posted man on common law of
"nuy man in this section , while opponent
Is practically but u novice.
The independent candidate for tliu state
jfjsoiiatorship , Mr. John H Felbur , is mak
ing it decidedly inlercallng all around ,
lie announced himself as candidate on
July liTth , ami planted himself squarely
on the Van Wyolc issue. If elected Mr.
lialbor will do good work for Van Wyck
in the stale senate this winter , and will
bo found in slate legislation true to Van
\Vvcl ; principles. Mr. Folbor is a thor
ough anti-monopolist. Ho does not bo-
hove in the railroad commission fraud ,
nor does ho believe in prohibition. Ho
believes it better to hayo a high license
law , tmcli as Nebraska now has , in pre
ference to prohibition. Ho is no
carouser , rarely visits the saloons , and
still more rarely drinks , but he believes
in personal liberty in so far as that does
noi interfere with the rights of others.
Van Wyck's scheme of having the vote
on the railroad coininissloncrship busi
ness recorded by counties in the late re-
t-juiblicun convention was an exceedingly
good one. Through il the people can see
just how the delegates voted. Wo now
jniow that Cedar 8 four votes were casl
not only for the commission but for the
prohibition amendment as well , The two
delegates who attended the convention
from this county will now have more
than u little "fun" in explaining to the
people why they voted as they did. Not
a dozen men In this eoiufly , outside of
the railroad pap-suckers , can bo found
ryrho nro in favor of the commission.

Something About the Man WIio llns
Willed Him n Small Fortune ,
New York World : Blue Anchor Is a
hamlet in the heart of the grape produc
ing region of New Jersey. It is about
twenty miles from Canulon on the Camden -
den > fc Atlantic City railroad , is the next
station nbovo Wlnslow Junction , nnd is
about six miles from Hammonton. Goo.
llutcliins was a man about sixty years
old. He and his wife Mary , a childless
couple , lived on a farm of modest extent ,
yet of considerable value , which they
called Ancora. llutcliiti * owned the
farm and his principal business was
raising grapes. Ho was a native of
that locality , but had been something of
a traveler in his younger days , and was
noted as an intelligent man and a pro
digious reader. In the course of his resi
dence at Ancora ho had tilled tlio Iiouso
with books -and periodicals , lln wns
particularly fond of getting everything
new in literature and in the indulgence
of that habit he picked up a copy of
"Progress and Poverty , " soon after its
publication. He was delighted with the
book and re-road It again and again.
More than that , ho became an earnest
advocate of the doctrines ho advanced ,
and mv. Ullcd his simple neighbors by his
constant and persistent ellbrts to propa
gate them. Thenceforth ho pui chased
and devoured with avidity everything
that Mr. Georjro wrote , and was carried
along stop by step , body anil soul , with
the author. But ho was as unassuming
an apostle as ho was sincere. Ho en
deavored to expound Mr. Gcorgo's
doctrines to his neighbors and to make
converts of them , but ho never sought ,
as so many admirers of popular authors
do , to make known himself and his ad
miration to his teacher. Ho only called
on his lawyer and made his will in favor
of the author. Then ho calmly waited
for his summons , not without secrotsalis-
faction , perhaps , at the thought that thn
surprise occasioned by the discovery
would make the author remember him
all the more pleasantly.
When , after the old farmer's death , a
few days ago , the will was read its con
tents were a complete surprise to every
body but Itis widow and a few other per
sons who had been cognizant of thorn all
along. Ho had evidently consulted with
his wife on the subject Mid won her over
to Ins way of thinking , for she expressed
no di.i.sat'.sfaction with his disposition of
the property , and says she will oiler no
objection to carrying out its provisions.
There is ono other poison , however ,
who is not so well satisfied. This is a
collateral relation of Mr. llutcliins ,
named Glendale W. Davis , who is said to
live in Philadelphia , although his name
tloes not appear in the directory of that
city. The exact nature of his relation
ship to the dead farmer is not known to
the executor , nor does the contest tiled
by him in tlio surrogate's court of Camden -
den eountj' state the grounds on which
tlio will is to be contested. The opinion
in the legal circles of Camden is that the
will cannot bo broken.
The will ilsalf is a rather curious doc
ument. After Hie usual formula declar
ing George Hutchins , of Ancora ,
township of Wlnslow , county of Camdcn ,
state ot New Jersey , being of sound
mind , etc. , bequeaths , etc. , to his wife
Mary llutcliins , one-third of his rcnl es
tate ami Northern Pacific preferred
stock and such of his personal properly
and household ellects as she may require
for her own usp , a single other bequest is
made of a sewing machine , logelhor wilh
oiiough money to put kin shipping order ,
to Sarah Wood , wife of William S. Wood ,
of Randolph , Parker county , Ind. Then
comes the residuary clause , which is as
follows :
"All the rest and residue of my estate ,
of any and every form , kind and descrip
tion whatever , 1 hereby give , devise ami
bequeath under the name of the
'Ilutcliins' fund' to Henry George , the
well known author of 'Progress and

and cognate subjects , including his 'Pro

cisms thereon , his 'Problems of the

pamphlets which ho may think it wise
and proper to gratuitously distribute in
this country ; provided :
" 1. That said George , his heirs , execu
tors and administrators shall regularly
furnish true annual reports of the man
agement and distribution of the Hulchins
fund to a paper called The Irish World
and American Industrial Liberator or its

of every free copy of IIIH books distributed
by means of this fund , this my solemn
request virtually to wit : 'That eacn re
cipient shall read it and then circulate it
among such neighbors or other persons
as in his best judgment will make the
best use of it.1 "
Thu estate , which consists chiefly of
real estate and a number of shares of
Northern Paeilic preferred stock , worth
at present ( WJ cents on the dollar , is
valued at about $10,000. William S.
Braddock , of Bates' Mills , is named as

Jlo It an Awny From Ills Hrldo.
Tor nioro than n year past n , young
Scotchman named James Irving has boon
employed ns a book-kcciior in Simpson M
carriage works on Dodge street. Sober ,
steady , reliable , niul good-looking
witluil , it is not strange tlmt lie .should bo
appreciated by his employer , who placed
every conlldonco hi him. Mr. Simpson
wna not silono in appreciation of the
young man's good < | imlilications. Soinu
months ago Irving madu tliu acqualn-
tiuico of n young lady , the duughtor of
onu of thu bust families whoso namu
need not bo mentioned in this tnlu of
disappointed hopes. Sullico it to say
that ix mutual admiration ripoiiud into
allcctloii , apparently mntnal also ,
us it resulted in an engagement
and an arrangement for an
October wedding. The announcement
was a source of congratulation to tliu
friends of both parties who considered it
n splendid match and prophesied a long
and liawpy married life for the worthy
couple. To-day , Oct. 15 , was decided
upon as a date for the union , and both
parties made arrangements for the
uvent. The young lady's bridal trossoau
had been built , her friendsduly informed
of the all'air and every necessary , and a
great many unnce.'sary preparations
made for the important event. Irving ,
on his part , seemed to be husv preparing
for the event , lie went to Calm Bros ,
on Saturday last and , representing that
lie was about to be married , invested in
a ? ! ) ( ) suit ot clothes , i'or which ho secured -
cured credit. On .Monday ho was at the
ollico of his employer as usual and paid
oil' the men and took money onottgli to
balance his own account. Ho failed to
appear at his work on Tues
day , and some inquiries were
made for him. Ho had been seen in
the city during the day , but had disap
peared in the evening.Vedncsday it
was found that ho had left the city. He
had about $1,000 in the Omaha Savings
bank and other money in another bank
in the city , all'of which ho drew on Tues
day. Why ho left the city ia a matter of
considerable conjecture. Ilisallianced is
a most estimable young lady , who is well
nigh heart-urokon over liis strange
actions and has no reason to assign there
for. Irving has of late been having some
trouble over the settlement of a Scotch
estate , and may have been called away
suddenly on business. Dame Humor 1ms
another version of the all'air that con
firms the old adage "tho iirst love is the
best. " Irving , it is said , recently told an
intimate friend that a. bright-eyed lassie
was waiting for him in bonnie Scotland
and that ho was soon going to the old
homo to unite his life and fortunes with
The affair has created quite a sensation
among llio friends of the interested par
ties. .Mr. Simpson has found nothing
wrong witli his books as yet , and it ap
pears that Irwing's crookedness consisted
entirely in his unmanly treatment of his
allianccd and the defrauding of Cahn
Bros , out of a wedding suit.
Arrival of the Blj- Moil of the Peim-
Hjlvnnia. Road.
At 7 o'clock last evening there came
into the Union Pacific depot u train of
four cars , which wcro the neatest in
every respect that have attracted attention
hereabouts. It contained the president
and directors of the Pennsylvania rail
road company. They were mot at the
c'opot ' by S. 15. Jones , assistant general
passenger agent of the Union Pacific ,
and Colonel Tom Orr , of the same com
pany. The names of the visitors are as

On thu arrival at the depot carriages
were taken for the Paxton hotel , and in
asmuch as the party had arrived several
hours ahead of time ( evidently disgusted
witli Kansas City ) , the regular reception
committee of this city was not on hand.
When the Paxton was reached , however ,
Senator Mandorson mid "several members
of the board of trade met the visitors ,
They wcro escorted to the Omaha club
and an impromptu dinner given them.
After the inner man was well satUlicd
Senator Mandersou iravo one of his un
equalled welcomes. Ho reform ! particu
larly to Omaha's prominence and Ne
braska's progress , introducing many
merry things tlmt in the hands of able
men always servo to do valuable punctua
tion. In referring to the opportunities
for loud mill industries in the wttit ,
and especially in this locality ,
Senator Mander&on made u very pointed
remark to his friend , John Price Wether-
ell , the king ot this line of business in
America. The hitter responded in a few
business like remarks , and from their
tenor it could plainly be scon tlmt if any
of the ctherell lend works rear their
"touts" in the west K will bo in Omaha.
General Koberts , president of the Penn
sylvania road , then > wns called upon , lie
said it was his Iirst visit to the west , and
although ho was prepared for surprises ho
never thought he would sec such won
ders. "Why , the cAttla wore Jumbos
compared to eastern cattle , and the
grain why , gentifincJi , it boats the
world. " Although impromptu this
was one ot the most im
portant festival reunions over
hold in the Omaha club and it is to bo
regretted that the ndvhneo arrival did
not permit Omaha to turn out a larger
reception delegation. Among those who
wore present , besides Unit prince of en
tertainer. ' ' , Senator Mandorson , wore
Herman Kount/.o. Hon. A. U. Wyman , P.
13. Her , A. K. U akeloy , Secretary Nattin-
gcr , of the board of trade , and Mr. Rich-
arils , a prominent drug merchant of St.
Louis who intends locating hero.
The visitors started out to make the
annual directors' Inspection of the lines
of both the Pennsylvania company and
the Pennsylvania Railroad company
going to the northern terminus ot the
roads at Chicago , and the western at St.
Louis. Coming so near to this part
of the country , of which so much has
been said in the eastern papers ,
they decided to visit it. The won
derful development which they have
noticed everywhere 5u the west has born
a surprise to most of thorn , more tlinu
rcali/.ing the expectations which they had
formed. They will leave early this
morning for Minneapolis.
The train which those railroad digna-
tarios occupy is certainly the most com
plete that ever came to the Omaha de
pots. * The rare nolislied dark outside of
the cars was but n dismal introduction
to what was within. Mr. M. S. Callaliau
has charge of the party , and it is
needless to say that the president of the
Pennsylvania company has made a wise
selection. Ho thoroughly understands
every minutiae of his business , and is
just as able to nolo whether particular
railroad facilities are afforded on the dif
ferent lines liis train passes over , as ho is
in seeing whether the Hap jack for the
morning breakfast is properly turned.
Mr. Callaliau is a Now Yorker of college
bred instruction and to his credit ,
hkox many other railroad men
in far lessor capacities , bo. it
said , ho knows that ho does not
own tins road or the world either. Under
him are eleven assistants , and one reason
strikes the lookers on in Vienna icl
that these railroad magnates fee
good is because their stomachs
are scientifically diagnosed. L. J.
Grubb is baggageman ot the party , and
although he has not to wrestle with very
largo pieces his weather eye is always
open. This visit of the Pennsylvania
gentlemen will certainly bo no detriment
to Omaha. It is to bo regretted that they
could not remain longer.
Meeting or the Democratic State Cen
tral Committee.
The first meeting of the now state dem
ocratic central committee took place last
evening in the Paxton hotel.
At an early hour \jhe \ rotunda was filled
with a busy , noisy , smoky crowd of rock-
rooted , straight-out , warm-iii-the-marrow
bourbons , of every , typ'o and every con
dition in life. They \vcro from city ,
town , hamlet and plain'i and circulated in
a peculiarly dcniooratiojstylc on all parts
of the lloor. The > .sample- was not for
gotten , and the cigar Stand likewise con
tributed to their".entertainment. . . The
gathering seemed. ) without a head , and
though the odices".of chairman and sec
retary were to be liUed/tliero seemed to
bo little diplomacy being practised to
secure either pno or thiS'otnor ' of the posi
tions by aspiring Mortals. So far as ap
pearances wont it looked occasionally as
if a little 'biitiontiilto'lihgif was1 done by
Omaha gcntlemonpbul it n-ns in a furtive
manner which scarcely attracted atten

The occasion of the gathering brought
out several df tin ; local war steeds , among
them being the calm and dignified pres
ence of Dr. Miller ; the active personalty
of his assistant , Frank Morrjsoy , the ro
tund FalstalHan frame of Hugh Murphy ,
the contemplative entity of Q. V. Gallagher
' '
lagher , the insinuating'oturo of
Charles Drown , with a host of others.
Those wore supplemented by retired vet
erans from abroad , Smails of Fremont ,
North of Columbus , with a few from other
parts. I5ut the absence of J. S. Morton ,

Tlio rctirinir moderator , Itcv. W. 13. Rim
ball , delivered the sermon for the owning.
He chose for his text a part of the lif-
toontli verso of the third chapter of I
Timothy : "Tho Church of the Living
God , the pillar and ground of Truth.1
The ml dross wns an able ono and closely
followed by the largo attendance. The
speaker said that man has n natural do-
slro for an association with fellow men
of his own class. ThU desire forms
an element ot character called
the social that results in the
formations of associations of business
and social character. This deslro is at
tributed to divine plan. Ho who trained
the stars to troop together also united
men in a common association. But these
human associations , while they have
their proper Hold , do not satisfy man's
highest desire. To supply this Gotl
founded the church. Of late , however ,
there have been inltnenccs at work to
keep men out of the church and away
from God. There is a crying need that
the church should be given the attention
tine to its holy origin and bo given the
prominence lor which il was founded.
The speaker referred to some of the
characteristics of the successful church.
First may bo mentioned the piety of the
members that always forms the uond of
union which exists among tlio
individuals who compose a church
lite second feature is the
dolinito form of constitution for the direc
tion of the church. The church may ex
ist with individuals without organization ,
but not with the same success. The
church is not for the purposes of worship
alone , but like the pagan temple stands
as a permanent monument of the place
in which God dwells in an especial man
ner. In worship and testimony too the
best work of the church is shown. The
influence of the church on modern clvili-
/.alion was dwelt upon at considerable
length and closed the strong sermon.
Attor the sermon the Svnotl organized
by the election of Itov. W. J. Harsha as
Tliero will no morning , afternoon and
evening sessions ol tlio synod to-day and
to-morrow. There will bo a popular
meeting this evening in the interest of
homo missions , to bo addressed by Dr.
Timothy Hill , of Kansas City , and Ifov.
T. L. Sexton. The mooting to-morrow
evening will bo in the interests of foreign
missions and will bo addressed by Uev.
Alexander Mitchell , of New York. On
Sunday morning the sacrament of the
Lord's Supper 'will bo administered by
the moderator.
They Suck Separation From Alleged
Unfalthliil Husbands.
The trouble in the Gotham family
came up again yesterday in the form of a
petition for a divorce filed by Mrs.
Gotham In the district court. Mrs.
Gotham , then Lillian Gray , came here
from Chicago in May last , to work in ono
of tlie manufacturing establishments and
scoured board with a Mrs. Gotham , on
Thirteenth street. She worked but a
short time when she became engaged to
the son of her landlady , and on Juno 20
gave up her position to become Mrs.
Frank Gotham. Their wedded happi
ness was of but brief duration. A few
weeks ago she became sick and was de
serted by her husband , who wont back
to live with his ma. Ho afterwards com
menced an action in Justice Berka's
court to got possession of the few arti
cles of household furniture that ho had
given his wife at the time of their mar
riage. Upon this showing of facts Mrs.
Gotham asks the court to grant hur a de
cree of divorce and restore to her her
maiden name , Lillian Gray.
.Mrs. Hannah Mossett filed a petition in
tlio district court yesterday asking a di
vorce from her husband , Joseph Mossett ,
to whom she was married twenty-two
years ago in St. Louis. Drunkenness and
cruelty are the causes assigned for the
desired separation.
The IlaruesR Moil in Murks Brothers'
Object to a Convict Bonn.
There was a walk out of workmen nt
Marks Bros' harness manufactory on
Harnoy street at noon yesterday. There
are twenty-live men employed in the har
ness department of the factory. About a
month ago the proprietor put in a now
foreman over thcso workman , a
man named J. J. Connor ,
who has boon until recently the boss of
the convict harnessniakors of the Mis
souri state penitentiary at Jollorson City.
The worxmon assort that Connor has
been treating them in probably Iho same
manner that ho did the convict laborers ,
and has placed work upon that they could
not ami would not perform. They
made an unsuccessful attempt to com
promise in order to keep on good terms
with their foreman , but failing in this
they petitioned their employers to have
him released , setting forth at length his
arbitrary and abusive metnods with his
workmen. The proprietors have had the
petition under consideration and yester
day returned an answer to the men that
the foreman would bo retained. The
workmen , twenty-live in number ,
then walked out of Iho
shop and will refuse to go to work again
under Connor. The workmen have no
complaint to make against their employ-
era. Their trouble is entirely with Con
nor. There will probably bo a union
formed among the Omaha harness mak
ers as a result of the trouble.
Quo of the proprietors of the above
named establishment called nt the Hi'.i :
oflico liiht night to make a statement in
correction or explanation of the charges
fibovo that were made on the authority
of the striking workmen. The proprietor
states that the foreman lists not had any
thing to do with convict laborers for a
number of years , but came hero from
Chicago , whore ho had been employed
for some lime. When the workmen ob
jected to him a few days ago the firm
asked them to try him another week , and-
If ho was not satisfactory then ho would
bo discharged. Instead ot doing this the
men walked out.
