'I hi' City At tonics'n Opinion ,
OMAII v , Neb , Dec 2i.Hon. ! . .lames K.
Hoyd , Mayor of Omaha. Dear Slr--15e- :
sionding ) to your request for my opinion
In wilting concerning the approval of
certain contracts for street paving , I
can only lepcnt whut 1 have already in
biibstnnce to yuu.
The plan of advertising for bids for the
paving contemplated tor ISStl , of course ,
is familiar lo you , as you had the honor ,
1 believe , of suggesting the plan adopted ,
and which , ns a business propositioi. , I
regard as eminently sound ,
Under Ihn plan suggested by you , the
board of public works advertised for
bids , requiring that nil bids bu made
upon blank proposals printed and fur
nished bv the board.
The streets then in contemplation of
being pavcU during the year 1SSO , wore
expressly named in Hie blank proposals
so furnished , us , for Installed : ( 'inning
street from Division .street to Ilrown
The proposal of each bidder was as fol
lows :
"Thmindcr.signcd propose to pave cacli
os the streets herein named on such parts
01 any of said streets as shall be ordered
pavc'.l during the year , 1830 , etc. "
1 enclose for your consideration , one of
the blank proposals referred to
The charter provision , with which we
are familiar ( section ! ! ) expressly requires -
quires that all paving for which a special
tax shall bo levied , shall bo ltet to the
iowest responsible bidder.
Under Uio charter provision referred
to , the question arises , as to whether
streets not covered by the proposal of
any bidder , and which were not then in
contemplation of being paved , but have
since been ordered paved , can now bo let
to the then lowest bidder , without further
It is claimed that as the , bond taken
from the contractors required them to
pave any and all streets required by the
city to bo paved during the year 18SO ,
therefore , they are the lowest bidders for
all such work. In all cases whore special
taxes are to bo levied , I am disposed to
advise such course as will , if possible , re
move all ground for dispute or contro
versy over such taxes , and with this in
view , 1 would bo disposed to favor and
advise advertising for bids for the paving
of all .streets not included in the former
bidding proposed. At the same time f
freely admit that had contracts now pro
posed been executed , and the work of
paving done , 1 would contend for the
validity and regularity of the tax.
1 understand that for a portion of the
paving proposed , a majority of the
property owners have expressly peti
tioned that the work be done under the
bjds of Murphy , Creightou & Co.of date
February 8 , 1880 , and at the prices therein
specified' , f fl all such piopcrty
owners , th HNs'anbc no question as to the
right to loRoutracts as requested , with
out further advertising.
A ro advertising may result in higher
bids and may also result in litigation.
Hut , as , to.the probabilities in this re-
gardsas well as to what is for the best inter -
tersts of the city , I must leave you to
judge and to act according to your own
best judgment.
Respectfully submitted , '
W , J. CO.X.VELL , City Attorney.

"J propose to thulium if it costs me all
the money I've got. "
The. speaker was a young , rather pretty
and well dressed woman , who was stand
ing in the Union Pacific depot yotcrilay
morning. She looked careworn and
traveled stained , but notwithstanding Hint
her appearance made her the centre of
attraction in the ladies' waiting loom , in
which she was sitting.
To a reporter for the Hri : the lady
whose name was Mrs Mary Sylvester ,
told her story in a manner which could
not but impress one thai she wa.- telling
Ihe truth.
Her home , she said , was in Godfrey ,
Ills. 1'or seven years she has lived in
that place with her husband. During all
that time she had lived a happy life , and
nntliing had occurred to mar lite rela
tions between herself and her husband.
About a year ago , Mrs , Sylvester em
ployed a young woman to act as maid ol
all work for hera girl by the name ol
Mary Nicmulir. Though quite youn
and "ignorant , she possessed atlrae-
lions which made her an object
of attraction to the masculine sex" .
It appears that Mr. Sylvester full a
victim to her charms. Of their rela
tions , Mrs. Sylvester suspected ab
solutely nothing , though as she has since
been informed , the Mason between the
two was a notorious fact among the no-
quaintancc.s ot Sylvester.
About ton days ace , Sylvester left his
liotnu in IJodfroy , saying that hu pro
posed to come to Omaha and see what
opportunities for investment ho could
llnd hero. He bade his wito good-bye ,
promising to write to her everyday ,
Since that time hlio has heard nothing
Irom him , A day or so afterwards , tin1
Niemuhrgirl disappeared and with hei
Mrs. Sylvester's only child , n litllu six-
year old girl , who hail boon fondly at
tached to the young woman. Mrs. S.\l-
vester was driven Irantio by this unex
pected turn ot alliiirs and upon making
inquiries unearthed circumstances whicli
led hur to believe that her husband had
eonuocted a .scheme to runaway with the
Nlemulir girl , taking with him thu child ,
She discovered Unit lie had drawn nearly
all his money nut of the biuil' '
and hud quietly disposed of almost
every article of ready salable property
he had. Mrs. Sylvester declares that slu
doc.s not care for her husband , but I s de
termined to find 11 or child if possible ,
Shu .says her husband has friends and
relatives in Omaha and Itoairlee , and shi'
thinks ho is hiding in one of thcso twc
An Incident In tin ; Late Flying Trip in
Fremont ,
The number of developments in tin.
faH run to Fremont , by a Union Pacific
special train on Monday last , is bocom-
Injj of intercft. The latest s that the
engineer , llouny , and the conductor ,
Uaile-y. have been suspended , for failing
to stop at the crossing of the Missouri
PacHic ro'idnear I'apillion. It seems
that tlio engineer was busy at the
t mo maUing steam and did not notice
the crossing in question , until after he
had run over it. Ho than
brought his engine nnd
jTJuitnniu.nvaltajiU } pr dece&tlrl
In a stop , but did not rccross. Ho then
continued hh Hying gait to Valley. It
seems , however , that some Missouri Pa
cific men were around and noticed the
omission and promptly notified their MI-
perlor.s. The c drought the matters to
the attention of the Union Pacific olliclnls
who promptly suspended both the em
ployes mentioned , One of the strangest
features of the episode is Hie defense which
Henry makes. Hn claims that ho did
not know Hint the Missouri Pacilio truck
crossed the Union Pacific near I'apillion.
and in support of this asserts tlmt he had
not run on tlio main line of the latter
road in three years. In that time he has
workedMMIIO times at the BlnlV < aiid. ome.
times here , occasionally ruiuilnpa switch
engine and sometimes cngagcu in other
pursuits. Under llicso cirouinstanecs it
can readily he believed tlmt he was not
aware of the crossing he had run over.

For sonic time back it has been well
known that representatives of the druir
linn of Hruce , Hhiko & Co. , of Ottumwa ,
la. , have been m the city with a view to
c'tablWiing a mammoth wholesale drug
house in Omaha. 'I hey were prompted
to thl niinc by tlio step of the Kiehard-
.son Drug ( . 'ninpanx of St. Lotii.s , the
Inrgcs ! linn of the kind in
the country locating here. They
have canvassed the situation veri thor
oughly and have finally entered upon ne
gotiations to pnrchasctiiostoek and busi
ness interests of the well-known 11. T.
Clarke drug company. The negotiations
have proceeded in n satisfactory manner
and yesterday a number of hands
weroutuployed in : nakimr an inventory of
the stock on hand. Mr. Clarke was
seen byji UIB : reporter yesterday morning
and in"response to interrogations from
the latter said that , negotiations of
Ihe naliiru suggested were pending but
that ho would nave more to say concern
ing the subject in a day or two , The un
derstanding at present seems to be that
Mr. Clarke will retain his interest in his
Lincoln drug hou e , while Ihe institution
here will bu sold to Hruce , Ulake & Co.
This latter is a very wealthy institution ,
doing a larjro business in Iowa and own
ing a bank in the town mentioned.

Omaha Merchants "Will Dlsouss It
Commissioner ( Jrillitt.s , of the freight
bureau , will call a inectimr of the mer
chants and business men generally for 10
o'clock : this morning , for tlio pur
pose of securing some expression on
Senator Cullom's interst.ilp commerce
bill , which is now pending in congress.
Tills is a lull providing that railroads
shall make pro-ralu charges for hauling
goods that is , .shall charge the same , in
proportion , for making long hauls that
they do for short hauls.
This bill , Mr. Crillitts thinks cannot
bo denounced by the bureau in too vigor
ous terms. " [ ( , will cause Omaha mer
chants to pay exorbitant rales. Tor in
stance take the haul between Omaha
and New York. Suppose a railroad
charges three cents a hundred for a ten
mile haul. The pro rata charge per hun
dred from Now York to Omaha , assum
ing 'hat the distance is 1,500 miles , would
be $1.50. When you remember-that the
rate at present is only seventy cents per
hundred , you can realise w'hafc a state
of affairs the Culloni bill , if passed , will
bring about.1'
An Important Rlcptinjiortlie Western
A meeting of the Western league has
been called for Saturday , .January 8 , and
will occur.:1 ! Lincoln , " said ( Jeorge Kay ,
the well known base ball enthusiast , yes
terday. "On that occasion , the question
of thu admission of Uaslings into the
league will bo derided. 1 Hunk it very
probable that both Pueblo and Hastings
will bo admitted , Inasmuch as the feel
ing is that Kansas City will bo barred
out. However , Kansas City may have a
representative at the meeting who will
prevent anything of that sort. "
"If Kansas City is not refused repre
sentation in the league , there will be a
question to bo deeide.d as to whether
Pueblo or Hastings is lo be admitted. In
that event , it is probable that Pueblo will
come put winner , as most of the other
cities in the league are against Haslings.
The question of the grounds which aru
lo be used by the lioinn club is as yet un
decided. Ifis expected that the matter
will be definitely settled within the next
two or three weeks.

night. Mr. MeDorilt lias already testified

He was near the tram at the time young
Gross was run over and killed , and saw
that the boy fell oil'and was not kicked
down by the brake man as claimed by the

the event of Peter and James Gross being
