of Louis liohle , whose body the defendant
. confessed to Inspector Hyrnc.s ho had cut up
nnd shipped to Ualtlmoro In n trunk , linger
related In an Intensely realistic manner the
circumstances of the murder , closing with a
repetition of his confession. Ills manner
impressed the spectators to some degieu with
the justness of the theory of self defense ,
tliQ violence of liohle being dramnttcally
Illustrated. Unger related the story of the
nUht of horror whlr.h passed while the body
of Ilohlo was behind the cot. llo had n lltful
Bleep , broken by horrible dreams , nnd In
each of them Hohlo appeared .standing nt his
bed. Dnucr would start tin and spring out of
tied. Again nnd again this was repeated.
Unger said In closing : " 1 don't ' know , but It
don't seem tlmt I did It. I don't seem to bo
awakv. I am a miserable man , I seem to ho
dreaming nver slncn. I certainly did It In
Rclf-delonsc. I can't blame myself. 1 am n
ml ! arable man. "
Alter n recess Uneer was cross-examined ,
nnd ho again described tlio fracas minutely
and without thu slightest variation trom his
former relation , nnd ns lie described nnd en
acted Ills part In the light Ungcr's face was n
study. At the moment when he was relating
with uplifted hand how he held the nrm of
liohle , who had a butcher-knife in his hand ,
tlioio wns nn expression of hard exer
tion and trial of strength In Ungcr's
lace , nnd when he , In his memory ,
ran from tlio furious liohle , who
WAS after him with a knife , nnd told
how ho stooped nnd with ono hand on thu
bed loom door i cached half behind him with
the other hand for the hammer in the tool
chest to keep his eyes on his assailant mean
while , there was that frightened , hurried , ter
rible look which one might expect to see on
the lacu of one In that scene , llo said : "I
didn't know 1 would grab the hammer.
There wore Irons there nnd 1 might throw n
piece of iron at him. " As ho struggled to
Iiold Itohlu's right aim aloft nnd to strike
with the hammer he said : " 1 knuw 1 wai
pone If ho got his nrm loosu with
that knife , and I struck him on thu
forehead ; and then , ns he pulled
me across the room , trying to get his hand
loose , 1 hit him on top of thu head. Ho stag
gered and fell back on the sofa. There wcio
n few twitches or jerks of his nrms and legs ,
nnd that was all. "

CINCINNATI , Feb. 17. The labor convon

now the absorbing topic In nil political cir
cles. It Is called to organize or at best to dis
cuss , the propriety of organizing a now
national political party in the inteiest of the

many parts of the country during the past
year by the labor candidates , and the un
usual agitation of questions of laborinirmcn ,
have combined to encourage the originators
of this convention to think that It is time to
form a national party. It is now expected
that. 1.50Q tluleirates wm bo hero , tliotieh there

lias over known. Wo will only Instance tlio

! ! . DocniBo Its reasoning nirnlnst the grantIng -
Ing of pensions , tlmt unworthy men may re
ceive the heneilt of them , applies rather to
the genernl policy ot pensions and towards
tor services than to this particular bill , and
It Is an nignmunthlcli , It carried to Its con

patriotism and tmbllc generosity.
I , Ducatisc It assumes that tlio union sol
diers of tlio w.xr ot tlio rebellion linvo al
ready been pensioned higher than those of
any other war in tlio world's history.
Wo need not KO oulsldo of this message
to show tlio error In this assumption , liy it
wo tlnd that one-third of tlio soldiers of tlio
war of tlio revolution or their representa

those of Hi. ) war o 1812. JJy takliiu tlio tlir-

The chances for Injuries In tlio civil war
weru more than ono hundred to one of those
in thu other wars refened to.
0. Because wo consider it very cold comfort
for tlio poordi'pundent veteran in one of our
county poor houses to bo told that soldiers'
homes have boon piovlded for a low thousand
out of 2,000,000 , nnd that laws Have been
p.issed klving preference to those who served

What People In the Neighborhood
Say About Thorn.
A reporter for the HUE yesterday after
noon investigated the report that the
people in the neighborhood of 1110 Jack
son street , where the Salvation army has
ita headquarters , were nnnoyod by the
meetings of that organization. As nearly
ns possible nn opinion was obtained from
n resident of each liouso on Jackson
street between Eleventh nnd Twelfth ,
Following is the result :
Mrs. Ahmanson , 1100 Jackson "At
first the Salvation army caused us some
nnnoynnco , but not much. Wo soon got
used to it. Anyway it is not the Salva
tion nrmy proper that makes this noise ,
but the toughs tlmt try to break up their
meeting. Wo don't mltul there being
thuro. "
Ed Callahan , 1103-"Tho Salvation
army don't cause us n particle of trouble ,
and I'd just as soon see them stay where
they aro. The people that imnoy them
make all the trouble. "
L. C. Iluntington & Sons , 11 M "No.
wo are not disburbed in the least by the
Salvation army. AH the trouble is caused
by those rowdies who go there to break
up the meeting. 1 have not heard of any
petition to have the Salvation nrmy
driven out of the neighborhood. Wo did
poml in a petition to have our property
protected from these rullhuis who made
u business of smashing \\indows ami
breaking chairs. 1 think we
are entitled to tiiat protection.
If it was n house of ill-
fame or n saloon next door , and the windows
dews should bo smashed there would bo
about eighteen .policemen on hand to
protect tlio property. As it is , it is only
a religious meeting place , and the police
don't scum to care a snap what the ruf-
lians do. "
Mrs. Read , 1118 and 1120-"Wc nro not
annoyed in the least by the Salvation
army , and would like to have them stay
whore they aro. Hut they need protec
tion from the rough clement. "
Mrs. Snowdon , 1131 " 1 can't say that
wo are troubled by tlio Salvation army
people. All the noise is made by the
men who try to break up the meetings ,
and the police ought to look after them. "
Mrs. S. H. Thompson , 1103 "I nm not
one of tint kind of people that are easily
annoyed by noise , and I don't ' bother my
self about the Salvation army. They are
no annoyance to mo. Oilier people besides -
sides those that do the singing and
praying raise the disturbance. "
A young lady in the liouso of Henry
Haegun , 1107 , said : "Tho Salvation
army doesn't annoy inc. Their meetings
are over by ten o'clock , in plenty of time
for us to go to sloop. "
Mrs. Jacob Cronk , 1111 "Those people
ple are good Christians and are trying
to do a good work. AH the disturbance
is caused by thosu roughs that go there
just to raise a row. There are a lot
of follows living around here who make
a business every night of trying to break
up these meetings. Tlio Salvation armv
people themselves do not annoy us at alf.
1 would like to see them stay just where
they aro. "
Mrs. Harrington , 1113 "The Salva
tion army does not : nnoy us in the
least. "
Mrs. Clinton , 1115 "The Salvation
army does not trouble us much. The
noise is made by that rougher ele.mcnt
which disturbs the meetings. Still we
don't mmrt it. "
Mrs. F. M. Kcrnan , 1117 "The people
around hero don't mind the Salvation
army , though it holds its meetings across
the street. The noise is not made by the
army people themselves , but the boys
ami men who disturb the meetings. "
Mrs. Cassell , 1119 "If the police would
only clean out the toughs who go there ,
those meetings would't disturb us. Wo
are not annoyed by them much , nnv-
way. "
Pointers on the Subject of Sfnacpier-
ndo Paraphernalia.
"Masks Yes ' of
? , we've got plenty
them , " said a clerk in one of tlio largest
establishments in the city , replying to a
question of a reporter. "Want to buy
one ? "
The reporter assured him that ho only
wanted to obtain .sonic information on
the subject.
"Yes , " continued the salesman , "wo
have a largo stock of masks and false
faces ; if necessary wo could lit out the
patrons of a do/en masquerade balls.
Wo have them in all varieties , grades and
prices , from the simple cloth domino
mask to the expensive one , weighing two
or three pounds and costing $1.00.
Here is ono nt the latter price , " and ho
clapped on the reporter's head a
mammoth representation of Uncle Sam
in a plug hat and a standing collar , the
whole being pretty near the si/.o ot a
small barrel. "That is pretty clumsy
and I'm afraid you'd lind ithardto dance
witli it , " he added.
"Hero is a line of false faces which soil
for twenty-live and lifty cents each. You
see they include negroes. Indians , China
men , devils , dragons , babies , old .women
and pretty nearly everything else you
can think of. Here is a line of wire
masks. They sell for lifty cents , being
somewhat more expensive than the ordi
nary article. Hero is another variety of
mask the wax coated. They come at
thu same prieo as tlio others.
"Here is another style of false face ,
wluuli is very popular animal's heads , i
can lit you out witli thu head of a wolf ,
lion , tiger , monkey , or almost any other
animal ? These sell for various prices ,
from r,0 cents to § 1.50.
"Then hero is another line of fulso
faces character masks. " Hero the clerk
uncovered a largo box , containing a lot
of masks representing various celebrities.
Among them the reporter easily recog
nized the laces of Garlleld , Logan ,
Cleveland , Hlaino , Hismarck and other
great men. "Most of these"Niid the
clerk , "soli for lifty cents. Here is a very
largo mask , ropresontiiig an Englishman
with long llowing hide-whiskers and eye
glasses. You can have that for $1.50.
Besides these , wo have u full line of false
moiihtaohea , boards , noses , etc. , which
are used at masquerade balls for dis
guises. They sell for 23 cents up to $1.50
and M , or oven more. "
"Whore are these masks made ? "
"The best goods are Imported from Eu
rope. They are made in Paris , Vienna ,
Munich ami Horlin , and other largo con
tinental cities. "

IjottU Knlnlmrt Meets Heath lly Violence
lence AVhllo nt Work.
Louis Kulnhart , nn employe- Hen-
son's ieo liouso at the foot of Jones street ,
mot with a violent death at 5 o'olock yes
terday afternoon. In the work of hoist-
intr ice from tliu rivur to the wnreliotisos
an endless chain is used to which are
fastened nt regular intervals blocks of
timber upon which the cakes of ice rest
while being hoisted to the ice house.
Workmen nro stationed at intervals along
the distance to steer the cakes of ice
through the various chutes into the dif
ferent ice houses. Any ono of these men
has the moans of stopping this endless
ciiain , and a rtilo is observed that the
man who stops the elevator must start it ,
the others keeping clear of it in the
meantime. Ileinhart was employed on
ono of Hongon's gangs. At G o clock 3'cs-
terduy afternoon someone stopped the
elevator. Immediately Heinhart stopped
inside the chute , when tlio ele
vator was started again , and before
tlio unfortunate man could save himself
ho was caught by ono of the hugo tim
bers nnd crushed in a liorriblo manner.
The machine was stopped as quickly as
possible and the injured man removed.
Dr. Carter was summoned , but announced
as soon as ho saw the injured man that
ho could live but a very short time.
In the crush some of the man's ribs had
been broken and forced into and through
ins lungs and liver. Koinhart lived about
an hour , and died without having re
gained consciousness.
Coroner Drexel was summoned and
took charge of the remains. A jury was
called anil an inquest held. The verdict
returned was that the deceased came to
his death by an accident which was the
result of his own carelessness.
The deceased was a Gorman about
forty years of ago , and lias lived in
Omaha for a number of years , llo lived
near the reservoir of the waterworks
company and leaves a wife , but no chil
dren. The remains are now at Drexel &
Maul's undertaking establishment , from
which place the funeral will bo hold
probably to-morrow.
A Very SuccosaCul Hemline H
Timbcriunti Imst Nlfjht.
Last evening a very pleasant literary
and musical entertainment was given in
the First Methodist church. Tlie attrac
tion was a lady elocutionist named Miss
Tnnbcrman. It was her first appearance
in the city. She had come heralded with
complimentary notices which had caused
people to expect a great deal from her as
an elocutionist. Miss Timbermaii is
possessed of a pretty and ex
pressive set of features , with
an endowment of natural gifts of intelli
gence and voice and graces of both ges
ture and carriage. She dresses fault
lessly , and when this fact is taken into
consideration with her personal charms ,
her success may readily bo appreciated.
Last night her selections were of the
lighter order. They abounded in pas
sages of pathos , sentiment , humor and
wit. They were admirably adapted to
tlio composition of the audience , and
eacli ot them received hearty applause.
She was several times recalled. She ap
pears next Saturday evening at the same
place in a rangeof. . Shakesiiercaii read

Incidental to the entertainment was
the singing of Mrs. J. T. Clark , Miss Nel
