I AN EMIGRANT'S STRANGE DEATH A IjlttloGIrl Mlsilnir r.iylor's Cnsc Tlio MnrBbnl Goes HabblnRtou's Jlclcnso A Hotel Man's Dentil Oilier Local. 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. T1113 MAIlSHALi GOliS. 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. KILLED ON THE THACK. 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 night. 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 train. FOH FATliliULANU. 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 army. " 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 < Jtud.by * 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.

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. Five acres in South Omaha for sale at a bargain. EVANS & JOHNSON. Crmkllnc I'ltice , On Leavcnworlh street. 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 fact.

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 thoca.se 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. Can TliN Bo IJcat ?

"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. Here Again. N. 1.1) .

EVANS & JOHNSON , 021 S. ISJth St. , Cunningham Hall. 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 satisfaction. 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. Ton acres for sale cheap. EVANS & JOHN-SON , o.'l S. 13th St. * FiUtl's Album.
