IVnlkcr'H Shameful Conduct
Isaac Walker is dm name of ti man who
is si chronic wife beater. For about the
fiftieth time he was arraigned in police
court yesterday morning on a charge of
abusing his SDOUSC. Monday lie went
home drunk and assaulted her shamefully
He was found by one of the neighbors in
the interesting business of dragging her
around the floor by her hair. When re
leased , iiis wife told a pitiful story of tlio
struggle she liad had with him and how
he had tried to burn her up by setting
lire the bed in which she
was lying. It was only
with tlio greatest difliciilty that she had
been able to extinguish the llair.es.
Walker was given a brief examination
and then held for further trial. It will
probably go hard with him when ho la
.sentenced , as Judge Stcnbcrg is consti
tutionally opposed to wife-boaters.
William Ilart. who had been guilty of
assaulting W. H. Quinism with a heavy
hammer , was lined ! ? 'J5 and costs. He
was committed in default. Twolvodrunks
were arraigned , and one was lined $3 and

Aside from being an expert in all matters -
tors relating to sudden and suspicions
deaths , Coroner Drcxel is capable of
nerving replevin papers with neatness
and dispatch. He was called upon yes
terday morning to show his ability in this
direcion in the case of the Paxton -
ton & Vlerling Iron works against
Raymond As Campbell , who nro en
gaged in building the viaduct. This firm
as is well known , failed last week and
among other tilings , owed $ 1700 to the
1'iiKton & Viorling companv. SheritVCo-
burn in behalf of the latter linn , at
tached a lot of iron which was being put
into the viaduct. This morning , Cor
oner Uroxolroploviiied the property from
Sheriff Coburn and turned it over to
Raymond & Campbell after that firm had
given u bond of ? D,80 ( ) , with Isaac Miller ,
of Council lllutt'f , and ( J. W. Liningor ,
of Omaha , as sureties , Work on the
viaduct was at once resumed , and will be
eoiitiued without interruption.

tilork directed a Her. reporter's attention
to the name "II. C. Cleveland , " which
was then wet upon the register , with the
remark , "I think bo's a cousin of

The next day , the register showed the
name , "II. H. Cleveland , " who , it was
stated , also icsemblcd ( lie husband ot
the "lirsl lady" of ( belaud , Last even

u few seconds later ho engaged the fat

meeting , beeause the rotund gentleman
was in excellent humor , The more ho
talked , the more tlio repot tor felt his vic

"Are you not President Cleveland ) "
the reporter at length asked.
"No , " lie replied , smiling , "but I am
taken for him everywhere. "
"Aro cm II C. Cleveland , thn prc.si-

" 1 am sorry to say 1 am not. "
"Well , arn't you H. 11. Cleveland , the

whether you buy or not , and see if my

.sold them in a week for $1,800. 1 have a

who put ( heir earnings in the.se lots and

of others , all citizens of Omaha , cannot
bo boutrht to-day for less than $1,000
each. Ten lots sold to Carl Sescmann
for $500 each will bring $1,000 to $1.000
each to-day , but ho will not take that for
them ; .So much for my prediction for
"ORCHARD HILL" not quite ono year
ago Wo have 200 lots left which wo will
sell at $ ; (50 ( to $ ! )00 ) each. Ono year from
now they will bring $1,200 to $1,000 each.
Even if you do not want to buy send to
my oHice and get a plat with prices
marked on each lot , and pin this to it for
reference one year hence. The question
is often asked , "If you are so sure these
lots will bo worth so much more in a
year why do you sell thorny" Simply be
cause tno changing of b-indsand improv
ing of lots sold causes the increase in
values of the balance , and it is by buy
ing and selling property that J make my
Very reasonable terms given on all
property handled by me. 1 will take no
property for sale that I cannot honestly
recommend to purchasers.

That Ijcnvciiworth Struct C ratio
Editor I5nn : For the purpose of in
fluencing the action of the city council on
the proposed change of grade of Leaven-
worth street , certain interested parties
called a meeting purporting to bo of
property owners interested in the grade
of saiii street. If it had been .such a meet
ing there would have been no objection ;
but it was not. There were several parties
present who acknowledged that they
lived outside the city limits , and many
others who have not any property inter
ests within a half mile of the street , and
ye they controlled the meeting , and
on its face made it appear that a majority
of the property owners were in favor of
the change. For my part 1 think there
might bo some little improvement made
without serious damage to property. I
think that the manner that has been
taken to change the grade is wrong. No
matter how disinterested in his action an
interested party may be lie is not a proper
person to get tip and establish a grade.
It appears to mo that the bettor way
would bo for the property owners in
terested to present a petition to the city
council for a change , should they desire
one ; that the petition should be referred
to the city engineer for his opinion as to
the desirability of .such change , and his
recommendations us to the best grade to
be established , and then if his views have
the assurance of the committee on .streets
and grades , that the grade be adopted
regardless of private interests the per
sons damaged receiving compensation
thereof , aim the persons benolitcd being
assessed for said benelits. Under the
system which is now being attempted on
Leavenworth struct , no ono knows
whether the street will bo improved or
not , whether the advantages will bo more
than oll'set by the expenses , or whether
the majority want any change.

Mr. Peter Connolly , of this city , yester

H. Hratton Konnett Square Pa. , brother of
William Hratton , who was found dead
in Mr , Connolly's store on Sunday night ,
instructing him to bury the remains in
this city , and stating that ho would write
him later. Accordingly , Air. Connolly
gave the deceased a respectabln burial
in Prospect Hill cemetery yesterday
afternoon at SJJo'clocK.
Win. llratlon the deceased was a man
of exceedingly brilliant mental qimlilica-
tions , and in Ids young manhood had
held important clerical positions under
the government at Washington. At one

the auditorship of Hie H , & M. road , and
subsequently became u partner in u

tion fro/.o nearly all tlio stock , llu was
the author of .Johnsoii'o History of Ne

many of the facts which have since been
incorporated into later publications , have
been derived. Ho was personally popu

At the last session of the leguhUuro in
1885 , in lias lately been brought to mind ,
there was passed a bill which provided
for aid in placing headstones on * the
graves of soldiers whose resting places
arc unmarked. The bill was supple
mentary to ono passed by congress which
furnished stones , and makes provision for
setting the same , providing the deceased
died without leaving sudlcient money to
purchase a headstone nnil without friends
who were cither able or willing to supply
the deficiency. The state law .says that
the county commissioners , or supervisors
where- the county has township organiza
tion , shall appoint a competent person to
superintend the erection of stones ,
who shall serve without payer
or conimNsion. The commissioners
of Douglas county , it is to bo regretted ,
have taken no action In the matter ,
mainly because the matter has escaped
their attention , This has not been the
case in other localities , where compe
tent parties lm\o been appointed to at
tend to tlio securing and tlio placing of
the .stones. The latter are obtained by
requisitions , showing the full name , rank ,
company , regiment and date death of
the soldier. In the cemeteries around
Omaha , there are a number of soldiers'
giaves which arc unmarked , and the
members of the ( r. A. R. , as soon as the
commissioners return , will sen that .somo
person is appointed to attend to the mark
ing ot tlii'su sacred resting places ,

The Wholesale Slaughter of the
Aiitlefcd Fleet Ones.
The season thus far has been so pro
lific of venison that the most enthusiastic
admirer of that delightful viand has had
little objection to find. There has not
been a commission house in the city at
the doors of which deer , mainly young
ones , have not been lying in numbers.
This shows that unusual slaughter of
these licet animals is being indulged
and gives rise to the fear that if it is
continued , before long , the deer will
disappear as has the bullalo. The Black
Hills' papers are crying out against the
slaughter and especially against their
killing out of season. It is claimed that
some protection should bo given this line
game , oven during the winter season.
This view is largely shared bv sporting
men in this section , who know that
wanton destruction eventually destroys a
great deal of legitimate sport.

A RICH MAN'S STORY.
JIouCliarlcH Crocker Accumulated
JllH Vast -.Millions In Thirty Yours.
1850. 1800. 1680.
Nothing. $50.000. $10,000,000. ,
That is short be.tveet. . Certainly , out
what is it ? ( The story of Charles Crocker
Thus the New York World begins an
account of this rich man , and continues :
Crocker is a native of Now York state.
His family wcro intelligent but very poor.
lie was originally gitted with natural
virility of body , with never failing good
nature , with a big heart , generous im
pulse and a. strain of push and energy
such as made George Law conspicuous
among the contractors of the world.
Tired of trying to do .something here ,
Crocker went to California in the early
days. Ho was not cut out for a miner ;
ho know nothing of refining processes
with metals. Ho had no capital with
which to embark in any of a thousand
and ono speculative schemes laid before
the fortunate ones of the golden shore ,
so he started , in what was then a little
town , a thread and needle store , where
nil sorts and kinds of feminine necessa
ries could bo procured , from the humble
bodkin along tlio line of pins , buttons ,
shoestrings , facings , underwear of every
name and description to the more pre
tentious garments. In tact , to quote the
words of Senator Hugh McDermott , the
well known poet and writer , whoso local
habitation , though not his name , is
coiifmcd to Now Jersey , ho would have
been "glad enough to sell out oven thing
ho had for a clean $1,500 in taTI. "
Crocker's saying habits , the frugality of
his wife , always a helpmate , his abstem
iousness , brought about their natural re
sults , so that when the Judah proposition
was made Crocker vyus able to chip in
with the rest. The lirst few miles of road
were easily built , anil when , in 1802 ,
Huntington , then in Washington , wired
to his partner Stanford , then in Sacra
mento , that the bill which had
passed comrrcss giving to the builders of
the Central Pacilio and the Union Pueilic
rail ways , every alternate section of land
on their respective lines and $20,000 for
every mile of railroad built , was signed
by the president and become a law , Stan
ford , turning to a well-known resident
of San Francisco at the time , said-
"There Is the basis of an imperial for
tune. " Already a largo number of miles
had been built from Sacramento on and
into the "imperial fortune" at the rate of
$20,000 a mile when the chief parties , the
big four , entered into possession. Each
gave up his former business to push the.
new venture , and to Crocker , who had
developed already much executive energy -
orgy and driving power , was assigned
tlio post of builder.
For eight years ho literally lived in his
shirtsleeves and overalls. Ho knew no
rose , ho had no sleep comparatively , lie
cared nothing for homo , nor for lite , nor
aught save the prosecution of that great
work which , so far as ho thought about
it , was to turn into his coffers a large
share of the "imperial fortuno" of which
his partner spoke , littln thinking ot thn
tremendous service ho and his friends
were rendering to the world at largo and
the people of this country in particular.
The two ronili wore rivals. Each started
from the Pacific slope. The Central
Paeilio .soon , encountered tremendous
engineering dillicultics , and instead of
building several miles of railroad a day ,
sometimes as high as eight , as the Union
Pacilio people were doing , they
were lucky it they built a milo a fort
night. Having reached the binn-
nut of a mountain it occurred to
their bright minds to .skip the valley in
tervening between it ami Us fellow , some
twenty iniha away , and they did so ,
rcnchfng then a plateau where they were
enabled to bijild eight , ton , twelve milc.s
of road a dati , miles which , according to
u sort of lujrishittvo codicil , warranted
them in dra.wing0,0W : ! ( each , instead of
the original1 S'0,0)0 , ( ) , while passengers
wcro brought by hlago from the temporary
ary terminus on the lop of ono nuuntaiii
to the starting point tins .side.
As methodical as over , Crocker held on
