Omalm Military Men Stirred Up Over the
Latest Court-Martial Order ,

Military Sensation.
The court martial order issued from
department headquarters which calls
for the assembling of the cotut nt Fort
DuChegnu , Utah , February 7 , lias excited
considerable interest in military circles
in Omaha. The fact that two colonels ,
Unco lieutenant colonels and six majors
compose the court is conclusive evidence
that a Held ofllrcr is to bo the subject of
trial and Invcstientlon. Tlih added to
the fact that only a few works n o Colo-
jiel Kdward Hatch , of the Ninth cavalry. summarily ordered to take command
: it Tort lu Chosnc , makes it
001 Inin that Major Frederick Hentcon of
the Ninth cavalry lately in command at
that post is to bo the subject of ollleial
inquiry by comt martial No infoi ma-
lion on the subject can be obtained from
those in authority , but there li no ques
tion as to the fact M stated. Major Hun-

The rtiinouncemeut which appeared in
the inorninjr papers that Lieutenant
Colonel Absalom Hainl , insprclor pen-
crnl , had been ordered to piocood at
once from Washington toFoit Iu Chcsiio
is taken as ovidcneo that the army head-
miartcrs at Washington will not permit
the case to come on trial unless the cir
cumstances are so lla raiit as to prevent
it being arranged otherwise without det
riment to the service. It is possible that
Major Hentccn's oll'enso may have been
homo uilliiur violation of the regulations
which while deinnndiitK reprimand need
not necessarily submit that bravo and
gallant oiiicor to the humiliation of a
court mat tint. If such should bo the ease
the court mailial may bo dissolved with
out session.

JobnS. Prince Answers Certain Ol-
Certain dyspeptic individuals , who o
names it is not necessary to mention , are
trying to make it appear that Saturday
night's race between Prince and Dingloy
was a tamely contested ono , and that the
record was far below what it ought to
lave been. All fair-minded persons who
witnessed the race agreed that it was one
of the best over scon in tills city. Uoth
men did their best to win , and the consequence
quence was that thoio were frequent and
exciting spurts of speed which served to
keep the enthusiasm of the spectator ? at
the highest pitch
Speaking of the rccoid made. Prince
said yesterday "Well , 1 admit that this
record lor the lifty miles was not as good
as has been made on ptovious occasions.
The rea on is appaiont enough. The
first tucnty miles wo raced so hard that
both of us were exhausted and could not
do the remaining thirty miles in as good
time as wo otherwise might have.
The rceoid for tlio twenty
miles was better than anv ever made.
If wo had been contented to start on" at
a modoiate pace we could have finished
much better at the close. You take a
horse that is callable of trotting a mile
in 'J t0 ! , and if you expect him to run in a
fho mile race jou wouldn't make him
liot the llrst two miles in'J ! ! 0 , for at the
end of the third mile you would run him
to a standstill. On the other baud you
would let him trot in about three min
utes , and in that way ho would bo able to
finish the live miles with a good spin t of
speed. It was exactly so with Sauuduy
night's race. "

Testing Thermometers.
"As this is the lime of year when no
two thermometers seem to agree , per
haps I can explain why it is by iclating a
little experiment , " said a Dodge stteet
druggist. " 1 took three ihcrmometcis
and tested them by putting them into a
bucket of water. They registered ex
actly alike. Thou I put one on a tele-
giaph pole noi th of the store and one
each side of a door opening cast. The
wind was blowing from the north. The
instrument north of the door and the one
ou the polo dilleied 0 degrees , while the
one south was U or ! i degrees higher yet.
I changed them about and they indicated
a dilleront number of degrees accoiding
to the position. I noticed they
altered with a change in the wind. After
some experimenting 1 discovered the
causo. The wind , entering whenever
another door was opened would carry
the warm air out through the deuces

Having noticed that Omaha \ poorly
represented In tlio Associated 1'ress dis
patches , the directors ot the bo.ud have made
arraURemcnts to have nil matters ol impoit-

Ou Apt 11 G tlio board took action to further
the passage of a bill to enable the Union
I'acilic railway company to aid the cou-
sti uctlon ot btnncli lines and extensions , nml

I am son j to note that nlthough agitated
forsevoial jeat' , Omaha is still without a
maikut house , nnd something should bo dnno
that ere the 3 ear of iVi" closes wo will h iyo
a mat kct house In which tlio pioducer and
consumer meet , and which will liavo a
temicnci to lucluco pikes ou a good many
necessaries ol llto.

ol Homing nnd woolen mills and additional
elovntors , nnd with tlio cheap teal which Is
pinmised us In' some ot om loading cltbons ,
wo oiuht to be nble to m.tUe Omalm the man-
ulactuilng center of the west.
Tlio bouleviirds vvnich vveto talked of so , nnd which would help in a great
muasuio to beautify the sunmtiidlngs
ot the cltj , have ns 30 ! not been laid
out. If the members : ot this boaul
bv their Individual elfoits , during tlio jcai ,
should .succeed In having boulnvnrds ustab-
llshud , tlioy would eain thogiatltudu ol all
out cltl/eus.
Anotliet matter which cannot bo urged too
strongly upon out elt > count 11 Is that all tlio
names of all our stieets should bo pioperb

nil } ol them visible.

Tto | cutortaliiiucut Kivon by "tho great

neither musicaldtamatic1 , molo-dt.unatii1 ,
tragical or farcical. It originates neither
with Collins , Taylor , Houcclcault , Hob-

fiend himself. Hut these columns are
not the mouth niece of superstition.
They must ti-11 the truth , and they but
tell the Unth when tlioy say that none of

iijg dexterity on the pail of the

spectators had ample course to doubt
their senses. Their eyes were open , butte
to no use when they "sought to discover
tlio method by which hats were packed
with a freighter's load of goods , when
ducks weio evolved out of strips of
paper , and human beings were made to
poise upon a single arm and with a sinclo
point in a manner which knocked cveiy
human cicneein a corner of the middle
ages. To enumerate Hci matin's acts
would bo an ungrateful task , for those
who don't want to see them. The o who
do want to see him , ought to learn that
