Horribly Scalded.
The Union Pncllic overland train from
( ho west last evening was delayed over
two hours and a half by an unfortunate
accident which occurred near Silver
Creek , Neb. Ono of the Hues in the en
gine burst while the train was running at
a high rntu of speed and the cab
of the engine was Instantly filled
with scalding steam. Hans Peterson ,
the iiroman , was at tlio time throwing
coal into the lire box , and the escaping
steam completely enveloped him , horri
bly scaldiny the exposed parts of his
body. The train was quickly brought tea
a standstill , nnd an examination made of
the unfortunate man's injuries. It was
found that the skin on his face and neck
had been completely burned away by the
Btoam and both hands so badly scalded
that the skin and ilcsh dropped Irom
Ohom , exposing the bones of a portion of
both hands. Peterson's injuries were
dressed temporarily in oil ami cotton and
lie was made as comfortable as possible
under the circumstances. The engine
was complntoly disabled , and it was
necessary to walk live miles to secure
another one to pull the train to Omaha ,
whore it arrived about 8 o'clock. Ur.
( talbraith was at the depot to attend to
Peterson's injuries , and the unfortunate
man was at once taken to St. Joseph's
hospital , where ho will remain until able
to return to work. Ho will undoubtedly
be disfigured for life , although his in
juries are not considered dangerous.

Mr. niorbowor Compelled to Vncnto
for Mr. Cnlboun.
Mr. Calhoun , collector of internal reve
nue of this district , told a Hr.i : reporter
yesterday morning that the question be
tween himself and the marshal with re
gard to the rooms to be occupied by each
in the postolflco building had finally been
by a peremptory order of the secretary of
settled the treasury at Washington to Mar
shal lllerbower to vacate his present quar
ters. "Wo are waitingonly until an order
on the treasury can be drawn , giving us a
little money to moot the necessary expense -
ponso of transfer. Some of the marshal's
cases must bo taken apart lobe removed ,
and that will require some mouoy , lor
which this delay is necessary. "
Marshal IJicrbowcr acknowledged the
issuance of the order in question , not
withstanding his correspondence on the
subject , but said at the same time he
had asked for some money to build a par
tition in his new quarters , llo did not
think that the removal would take place
until this request was granted.
IJy tliis , Mr. Calhouu gets two rooms
for one. which latter the marshal will bo
compelled to divide Into halves , which
will afford him very small quarters.
The Mystery of nit Emigrant t'asscn-
Kor "Who Jumped OH * the Train.
Dispatches received at Union Pacific
headquarters yesterday announce n
etrango occurrence , which took place on
the Idaho division of that road Monday
On that evening , as train No. 501 was
speeding its way westward between
Shoshone and Ontario. Joseph Kilbur ,
nn emigrant bound for Walla Walla , was
observed to disappear. Ho had announced
his intention of retiring , and indeed had
partially disrobed , when all at once the
fact of his disappearance was noted. It
was supposed that ho must have gotten
oft" at one of the stations between Shoshone -
shone and Ontario , or more probably in
n lit of insanity jumped ojV into the
darkness as the train was moving. This
liitfor supposition is the more probable ,
us Kilbqv had from time to time mani
fested signs of mental weakness.
Nothinjc moro was known of the lost
passoiiper until yesterday , when train
No. fi9 ! west-bound , Conductor Swanson ,
Engineer Dorlmm , struck and killed a
man near Glenn's Ferry , about ! ) :33 : a. m.
According to the report , the man who
ehoolctis and tailless was walking west
when the engineer signalled him to
get olV the track , The man did so. but
just as the train was about to pass him he
Stopped on the track again. Ho was in
stantly killed and irigl'tiully mangled ,
almost beyond recognition. It lit sup
posed from the descriptions which are
furnished that the unfortunate man was
Joseph Kilbcr who had jumped oil train
No. 001 the night before. Kilbor's part
ner states that ho had several hundred
dollars about his person when on the
Gorman Subjects in Omaha AVlio Are
lanblo to Military Duty.
The ominous preparations for war in
Europe has caused many a young Ger
man in this city to feel that before many
days ho will bo compelled to return tc
Germany to taka up arms in defense oi
the fatherland.
Last night a BKE reporter was made
aware of this fact by a conversation with
several intelligent youiiK Germans who
have served some time m the German
" Wo arc under compulsion to go bacli
to Germany , if a war should bo declared , "
said one of them "because wo are still
citizens of Germany. You see , wo enter
the army over there at the ago of nineteen
years , to serve three years. It wo arc
nbla to pass an examination in at least
two foreign languages together with all
the branches taught iu our schools ,
we can save two of those
years ami bo compelled to servo but one
year. Whether we servo three years or
one year , we are still obliged to go into
camp for six weeks every two years , and
for two weeks in the fifth year , thus mak
ing fourteen weeks of service in the live
yjars. Wo are then usually about 25
years of airo and deeply in love with our
country. Wo do not question the necessity
of these military Jaws , because wo feel
they are necessary for the preservation
nf the nation. When we have attained
to the ngo of thirty-one years wo are en
rolled among the landwehr , or the first
reserve corps , and later wo go into the
land-sturni , which consists of old men
ttml is the last reserve to bo called in
event of war. When wo enter the army
we swear while wo remain citi/ens of
Germany no matter whcru wo may reside ,
to report to our command in the event of
war. The unpleasantness of this oath
we do not see over there. It is only when
t ; wo get here , ami we see how much better
wo can live and advance ourselves that
we fee the disadvantages it entails upon
us. Ami yet , if war should bo declared to'
morrow , thorn are 100 , yes ISO , young
Hum who would leave this city to join
their old command in the army. If they did
not they would forfeit whatever property
they might have In Germany and lui
open to the reproach that they were al
lowing thmr fathers ! and mothers to be
? F9tJc < * Ue 51MS of oilier parents. .
Of course we try to get absolved from
allegiance to Germany and that we ecn-
crally do by asking for an extension of
our leayo of absence , because all of us ,
who hare boon in the army arc hcre only
by permission of the government. Yesif
war be declared 150 of the finest young
Germans of this city will return to the
fatherland. "

Oppoio the Sewer Tax.
The citi/cns of sewer district No. 20 are
objecting to the payment of the sewer
taxes imposed this year. The residents
of the hill a few blocks west of Satinders
street are taxed as high as the storekeep
ers doing business on Saundcrs for the
combination storm-water and house-
drainage sower. This is declared unfair ,
as the hill men do .lot use these sewers ,
and the unhealthy eden that emanate
from the catch basins are a nuisance.
They want all sewers to bo run under the
alloys instead of In the middle of the
streets , so that the house drains can bo
connected with them with fewer feet of
load pipe than by running from the
kitchens through front lawns to the
street middle. Certain of the objectors
met in Grace chapel and a committee re
ported that it had legal advica to the ef
fect that the citizens had good cause for
action against the citv. They agreed to
meet again pn next Tuesday night at the
same place and appointed G. H. Uatlibun ,
Robert Colvin , Joseph Darker , Mr.
Holmes and Dr. Spaulding as a com
mittee to make arrangements therefor.

A Llttlo Olrt Missing.
George H. Kingham , an Englishman
boarding at the Emmet house in this city ,
is in great distress over the whereabouts
of a little daughter. The little girl whoso
name is Gcrtio , cloven years old , has
been visiting relatives at Albion , in this
state. Yesterday morning Kinpham re
ceived a postal card , saying that the little
ono would start for homo , arriving in
Omaha Tuesday evening. The postal
card had evidently been delayed , and as
his daughter had not put in an appear
ance , the father started out to look her
up. At the Union Pacillc depot Kingham
was informed that a little girl answering
Gertie's description had arrived on the
overland train and had gone across the
nver. Ho immediately went over to
Council JMufl's to search for the missing
girl , but up to last evening was unable to
get the least trace of her. It is King-
nam's opinion that some one in the Hlull's
has taken Gertie to their home and the
distracted lather hopes to get word from
the little olio through publicity of the

Judge Stonborg is continually troubled
with the cases of wife-beaters. Not a
day passes but that ho disposes of one or
moro of this most degraded class of
criminal offenders. Strange as it may
seem , however , the greatest obstacle in
the way of justice being properly meted
to a scoundrel of this kind is the wife
herself. As a usual thing she is very in
dignant when she comes to swear out a
warrant for her husband's arrest , but at
the trial she generally relents and begs
for his release. Even if she does.not do
tliis , she rarely or never fails to appear
about the third day after ho has boon
sent to jail and ask that ho be allowed to
go free.
A striking illustration of this is
of the man , Edward Bnbbington , who
was sent up foe thirty days n short time
ago for beating his wifo. Ho is a thor
ough brute , and has been time and again
arrested for ill treating his wife. E.ioli time
she has successfully pleaded for his release
On till1' occasion she deflated to the judge
that she would not ask for his release if
he were sent UP for six months. Yrstcr-
day however , she went to Mayor Doyd and
told him a piteous story of now she and
her child were starving , having nothing
to cat , and having no moans of support
except what was all'ordcd by the labor of
her husband. She stated , furthermore ,
thai her rent was past duo , and her land
lord had notified her to get out of the
house. Under these circumstances Mayor
Boyd ordered her husband's release , and
the woman went oil' happy.

"You newspapermen are always d d
hard on a man when ho gets into a little
trouble , " remarked Taylor , the man ar
rested as a suspicious character , to a re
porter yesterday. "The stun"that has been
printed iu the morning papers about me
since I was locked up is nothing but a
pack of lies. "
L. C. Taylor , it may bo remembered ,
was arrested by Special Policeman
Thompson near the St. Paul depot night
before last charged with being a "sus
pect. " The fact that he had six or
seven spurious , very clever counter
feited dollars caused a lurking
suspicion in the minds of Uie
police that ho was ono of a gang of coun
terfeiters who have boon infesting this
city and the Blull's. It is alleged that
while riding in the patrol wagon Taylor
tried to slip thcso counterfeit dollars out
of his pocket , but in so doing was detect
ed by the otliccr. Ho explains his pos
session of this money by baying that he
is in the employ of the United States
secret service , in Irving to ferret out the
gang ot counterfeiters of which the police
think ho is a member.
Taylor denies most emphatically that
he ever served live years in the Iowa pen
itentiary or that he has "done timo" in
the Nebraska stale prison.

A Sulininrlno Koat that Works AVcll.
London Daily News : A boat called
the Nautilus was yesterday tried in the
( loop-water ( look at Tilbury , in presence
of a large number of naval and military
men among whom was Lord Charles
Beresford. The boat was made to rise
and sink and to take short trips on the
surface , and under water hidden from
view of the spectators on shore. The
limited space prevented the Nautilus run-
ninir full speed , and the Doek company
objected to experiments with exploding
torpedoes. What was done gave great
Mr. Campbell , the. inventor , bethought
himself how to supply a boat which could
bo readily submerged or lloatod in a safe
and simple manner , leaving nothing to
chance , and not depending on the power
used for propulsion a boat practically
indestructible , efficient in any climate ,
and ready at any moment. 'I lie theory
that it could bo done by simply increas
ing or decreasing the weight had failed
as also had that of propelling the boat
down nose foremost , for as soon as the
machinery stopped she found an even
keel and lloulcu to the surface ; nor did
he think finality and nb > elute success had
been readied by that better method
adopted by Mr. Nordenfcldt , by which
the boat is forced down by means of
propellers or screws working Tiorixontiilly
at the side of the boat , tor the capital
fault still remains thai submersion is de
pendent upon the machinery.
Fish and animals subsisting in water
rise and sink simply by mut-ciilar eon-
traction and expansion. The same ex
pansion and contraction to such a rigid
structure as a boat was given by placing
in the hull -of a water-tight vessel a
serins of metal cylinders , into which arc
lilted rams and drums , which can bo pro
truded or withdrawn by a simple process
governed and worked by the screw of
the vessel , by moans similar to those used
in steering an ordinary sliip. The speed
of rising or falling is ea ily and per-
feellj regulated ; an even keel is always
maintained and perfect safety is assured.
A torpedo may not simply be taken
within striking distance , but may bo at
tached and Irom a point of safety. J'he
inventor , in short , claims that ho has
produced a boat which is perfectly under
control ; can bo kept at anv
given depth , can be raised or sunk
rapidly or slowly ; can be propelled sit ten
knots an hour , or , floated or submerged ,
may bo Kept for days without using a
traction of the stored propelling power.
The Nautilus is a cigar-shaped vessel ,
sixty feet long and eight foot diameter
amidihips. She is propelled by twin
electric engines , worked from storage
batteries ot largo capacity. For safety
she is divided mlo lour compartments ,
all the projectors and machinery being
contained in one of these , so as to render
them under easy control. Besides the
projectors ho is htted with water ballast as
well as horizontal rudders , and in case of
an absoluts break down , such as might
be caused by collision or a similar acci
dent , a turn of a bolt will enable the
crow to release a heavy woiiflil and raise
her to the surlaco. Tims everything is
believed to have been done to insure ab
solute safety to all lives within bur.

Autograph collecting is ono of the most

a collection of more than usual value is

Mine. Adoliua Patli. For ninny years
past no friend of any distinction has
been permitted to pass the threshold of
the prinia donna until he or she has
written a few words cither upon Mine ,
Patti herself or some other subject oi in

natures of almost every notability both in
nnd outside of llio musical world are to
be found in ono of her albums , while , be
sides those , are many letters of well

and other illustrious ones.
