OMAHA Ol'lim DENS.
The Pollen Still Watching n Place on
Thirteenth Street. Pointers.
The police have boon closely wntching
Quong Wall's place on South Thirteenth
street which was reported as an opium
joint. As yet they have failed to dis
cover any evidence against the place.
There are several of these opium dens
in the city and if tlio police desire to
carry out tlio law against such places
there will be no lack of material on
which to work. Perhaps the most no
torious den in tlio city is that on Twelfth
etreet between Douglas and Frtriinm.
People who arc notorious hop fiends can
be seen going into this place at
all hours of the day and
night. People in that neigh
borhood complain that thu smell of
opium a sickly , oppressive odor , is dis
tinctly perceptible in tlio vicinity of this
place , almost every night. This "hop-
joint" is probably tlio most extensively
patronized in town. Gamblers and fast
women make up , for the most part , its

the opium smoker can enjoy a quiet
"siesta" at 25 or 50 cents a pipe , fn.fact.
as an ofliccr remarked yesterday , this evil
has grown so in Omaha that there is
hardly a Chinese laundry in the city that
has not its opium smoking outfit.
It is very dillictilt to procure evidence
against the fellows who run these opium
joints. The Chinamen themselves , of
course , always deny that opium-smoking
is practiced in their places , and to all in
quiries , reply with a solemn shako of the
head , "No hoppeo hero. " The babitual
users of the drug never can bo
made to testify against the pro
prietors of these opium dens. The
Chinamen take care to admit no
man into their dons , unless ho is intro
duced bv some well-known user of the
drug. This rule is a cast iron one , and
serves to keep out all spies , or person
who would bo liable to "give away the
placo" to the police. Two years ago ,
shortly after the anti-opium law went
Into effect , the police raided a notorious
Jen , but owing to tlio fact that tlio move
was made before everything was ready ,
tlio raid proved a failure. One or two of
the Chinamen wore ( incd , but the great
majority escaped conviction.
HIS TIIAVEMNG HOME.
"Diamond Dick's Palatial Car Seized
l > y Its Rightful Owner.
Mr. F. W. Fitch yesterday seized tlio car
occupied by Dr. "Diamond Dick , " on be
half of Mrs. Mary Tukoy of Kcokuk , la.
The doctor has represented that tlio
palatial car bclonccd to him , whereas , it
appears it belonged to the lady men
tioned above. Mrs. Tukoy two years ago
loaned the young and dashing doctor
f 3,100 , taking as security a mortgage on
the car. The loan was never repaid and
the car became Mrs. Tukoy's. "Diamond
Dick" at once made a contract to lease
the car from her at so much a vcar , and
to pay her sqn a stated salary every
month , as manager of the car. Since
that lime , Mrs. Tukoy claims , ho has de
faulted lease money to the amount of
f 1,800 , besides being in arrears for her
FOII'S salary since January. She there
fore lias had tlio attachments which were
placed on the car by "Diamond Dick's"
creditors dissolved and it will bo sent
back to Kcokuk to-morrow morning.
THE DEMUUUAOH SYSTEM.
It Will Do Adopted by the Union Pa
Union Pacific oflicials are fixing up a
scheme to charge "demurrage" on all
cars hold by merchants over the settled
time o ! twenty-four hours. For the ben
efit of the uninitiated it should bo staled
that demurrage is a sum assessed upon a
merchant to whom an assignment has
been made if ho fails to unload the cars
consigned to him within twenty-four
hours after ho is notilied of their arrival.
This demurrage may amount to
f5 a car or $1U a car more or less , ac
cording to the discretion of the railroad
oilieials. For some reason the demur
rage system has never been adopted by
tlio Union Pacific , though in other cities
it is in vogue and its rules are rigidly en
forced , During cut wars ic frequently
happens that merchants take advantage
of the low rates to order largo stocks of
goods from the cast. The cars pile in
upon them much faster than they can
handle them , and the consequence is
that the railroad company is obliged tc
hold the cars greatly to its own annoy
ance and the detriment of its business.
The demurrage system is intended to

$ , .0,000. . Tlio case will bo tried On this
issue at the present term of court.
Tlio friends of the Omaha firm sav that
the charges are wholly irroundlcss and
will be so proven. Mr. Webster carries
with him to Denver a sixty-six page

testimony , already taken , which show
serious ( lescrcpanclcs. Depositions from
over one hundred witnesses have been
been taken and will bo presented.

Detective Victor Schumacher , of Chicago
cage , was in tlio city yesterday , en route
from California east. Ho has just closed
up a very neat piece of detective work in
the captureof Charles Green , a noted
crook who escaped from the Jolict peni
tentiary recently. Green had been sent
up for u term of seven years for a burg-
glary committed in Chicago. Schumacher
traced the man to a little town in Cal
ifornia and arrested him there.
Yesterday Detective Schumacher called
upon the police oilieials and last night he
left for the cast.
. "Wluudoypu think of Carter Harri
son's nomination for mayor * " was asked
of Mr. Schumacher.
"I think , " was the emphatic reply ,
"that there isn't the slightest doubt but
what he'll bo elected. Ho is the most
popular man in Chicago to-day. Ho has
the city government and the popular sup
port to back him. He'll not only got the
solid democratic vote , but many rcpubll
can votes as well. "
"How about the anarchists ? "
"They'll bo hung every mother's son
of them just as sure us I am talking tc
you now. "

A WIND 8TOUM.
Wild SCPIIOH About the City A House
The wind yesterday morning blow with
surprising rapidity and created a noisy
and dusty commotion throughout the city.
Signs groaned uselessly for a rest , as
they swayed with pitching motions , en
dangering the safety of passers-by.
Paper , rag.s anil otlior dried refuse held
high carnival with the fantastic ,
twisting dust that Hew in all directions ,
responsive to the gusty eddies , brushing
the pavements , or toying around lofty
chimneys or boldly slapping the hurry-
hie pedestrians in tlio face , regardless of
rank , sex or costume. Some damage
was done , but in view of immense
amount of scatlbldingand building frame
work all over the city , tlio estimate will
bis small. Tlio "Nebraska Market , " in
an old building on an alley , between
Howard and Harney streets' , fronting on
Thirteenth street , was slightly damaged
by the wind. The front , near the roof ,
was torn , leaving an opening about
largo enough for a dove cot.
It is an old weather-beaten
structure owned by Pat Manning , and
tlio damage will probably amount to $50.
This occurred about 7 a. m.
llobbio Bros. ' sign at 1113 Farnam
street was blown over tlio Goodrich
building upon Drcxcl & Maul's roof ,
which it damaged seriously.
After about 7 o'clock the violence of
the hurricane abated , and at noon the
wind had tamed down to u gentle bree/.e.
The signal olhce reports show that at 5
a. m. the velocity of the wind was thirty
miles an hour.

MIKED IN THE MUD.
The Experience of Two Omaha Mm-
rods on the Ellchorn.
J.JC. Farrish , a member of the fire de
partment , familiarly known as "Spuds , "
and Dick Hill , returned yesterday from a
hunting trip to the Elkhorn. They
brought back seventy-one ducks as the
result of the trip.
The boys had an amusing experience
while on the Elkhorn. Their team be
came mired in a marshy piece of land ,
and were unable to move. Farrish and
Hill jumped out of the wagon to assist
their equine friends , and in jumping be
came fastened in the quagmire- them
selves. While they were in this plight , .
tlio horses pulled out of the mud and ran
away , leaving the two hunters knee deep
in the mire. Farrisli and Hill extricated
themselvps as quickly as they could , and
started out after the horses. The team
was recovered after a two days' search.
ODDS AND ENDS.
Stray Leaves From n Reporter's Note
The-magician Hermann , who recently
appeared in tins city , was very fond of
entertaining his friends in private with
an exhibition of his wonderful sleight of
hand skill. During his recent visit to
this city ho invited a party of friends to
meet him on the stage at the close of the
performance. A choice brand of cognac
and an excellent Havana put the great
prestidigitatcur in good humor. Ho re
galed his friends with a number of ex
cellent tricks. Tim most wonderfulper
haps , was played upon a newspaper
man who was one of tlio party. Her
mann turned to him at the close of the
seance with the remark : "Young man ,
I've taken a fancy to you and 1 am going
to make ' vou a present of this magnificent
diamond'ring which was given to me by
a Russian prince. " Ho slipped the splen
did circlet off the finger of ins right hand
and proceeded to place it on tlio little
linger of the scribe. The latter could
plainly feel it slipping past the joints and
was sure of temporary possession of the
ring , at least. The magician removed
his hand , when lo ! and bolioldl the ring
was discovered not on the hand of the
newspaper man , but on the little finger
of the left hand of llermirtin. Thojnpws-
paper man was surprised , if not disap
"I wouldn't be surprised , " remarked
an undertaker yesterday , "if the recent
cremation of Edward Kuclil's body would
not start a small cremation craze in this
city. I have heard men v'ho wore ap
parently in earnest say within tlio past
two weeks that they preferred sucli a dis
position of their remains and would pro
vide for it in their wills. "
"Omaha has tlio worst drivers for a
city of its sizes of any in the country , "
remarked a horseman yesterday. "They
don't seem to know tlio law of right and
left at all. It is really dangerous for a
lady lo attempt to drive the most gentle
horse on the streets , for some reckless
fellow is sure to render a collision immi
nent. Whan grading commences and
ten-year-old boys are given charge of
teams , so that their fathers or employers
can make a fnw extra cents by engaging
in another branch of work when they
should bo attending to their teams , then ,
the fun will bo inaugurated. "

The BKB has received numerous inquiries
from persons who wanted a certain dis
crepancy in the case of John W , Laucr
explained. It will b remembered that
in the reports of the evidence it appeared
that Lauor had expressed a desire to
bury his dead wife on Sunday because his
mother had been buried on that day.
Later on tlio public was informed through
the press that tlio first thing Latter had
done after his acquittal was to telegraph
the news to his aged mother in Clove-
land. This apparent discrepancy is ex
plained by the fact that the telegram
was sent to Lanor's stop-mother. Ills
own mother died years ago.

The large snlos which followed our recent announcement through the press , of our im
mense line of Spring Overcoats at our popularly low prices , has so depleted our .stock ,
( some styles having been entirely closed out , and of qthers the sizes were entirely broken )
that we were compelled to duplicate our entire line , which with an increased assorment
is now again complete.
Those who were in the habit of ordering their Spring Overcoats made by merchant
tailors , were deeply interested in our $14.75 and $15.75 overcoats , of which we sold largo
quantities. These garments are made up from very good .English and the very best Amer
ican fabrics , and the make up of which will compare with such overcoats as merchant tai
lors ask from $35 to10 for.
We have also an immense line of lower grade Spring overcoats , ono style , of which we
sell for $5.75 , is a marvel of cheapness and sold by other dealers for $9.
