Well defined rumor has It that the
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul road is
K- projecting the Immediate construction of
its line into this city. It is stated that
the road will soon ask the city of Omaha
for a subsidy unit that If its over
tures are favorably received
it will commence work at once
Mr. J. T. Clark , general superintendent
of that road , Is now in the city quietly
* > i skirmMiing about. Ho refuses to say
anything about the matter. Local railroad
road men credit the rumor and say that
there Is not the shadow of a doubt but
that the Milwaukee will enter Omaha ,
and that at once.
A SPKCIAI , CAU.
Mis. C. II. I'rescott , wife of General
Manager and Vice-president I'rescott , of
the Oregon Railway and Nayagation
company , is at the union depot in her
special ilining and palace cars. She Is on
route to Now i'ork with her daughter
aged thirteen. They remain in New
York for a war. They are to-day the
guests of S. i\ Smith , general superin
tendent of the Union Pacific and leave
Omaha to-night by the Chicago , Rock
Island and Pacific"railroad. .
MOKE SWITCH KNOJNKS.
The Union Pacilic's increased traffic
lias necessitated an increase in the facili
ties for handling cars in the yards. Ten
now switch engines have recently been
put to wOrk in the upper and lower yards.
The Union Pacific freight department
has FX men constantly employed on the
now freight tarifl's , which have to be
issued in accordance with thn interstate
commerce law. The work involves a vast
amount of details and it is hardly prob
able that the new tariffs will be out before

A circular has been received in tlU
city announcing the appointment of Mr.
liurton Joluihon as second assistant general -
oral freight agent of the Chicago &
Railway officials say that they appre

Pat Humphries , the well-known passen

The Mln-inuri's Impetuosity Dropping
\ into Its LcRltimnto Channel.
The water in the Missouri has fallen
considerably since Tuesday. The union
Pacific railway is ballasting its track
and straightening out its sinuosity.
South of the waterworks a largo box-car
is partially submerged , and is nearly
tilted over. The engine and house
of the Grant Flag and Stone Paving
company are unUer water , ns is their
yard. William Davis , whoso house near
the bridge was moved smoothly to Kansas
City on Sunday , has an idea that Omaha
will pay him und has notified the au
thorities. Ira Jones trundled along the
track with an immense sphere of beading
on Ins back , a strong comforter enclosing
nil. Ho waded into the mud to get into
his house. The crowds of poor people
who are out on the track in the water
picking up wood and other articles are
Htill industrious. It will take two weeks
before the water subsides fully , it is
claimed , and then will follow a season of
mud , and if the sun shines warm , bad
odors may bo cxocctcd in the neighbor

W. J. Baker is the name of a partly
suave gentleman who came to Omaha
about two weeks ago. He registered un
der ati assumed name at the Cozzcns
hotel , at which hostelry ho has since
been stopping. Ho announced that ho
represented a big starch factory in the
cast , whoso goods ho desired to sell in
Omaha. Mr. Uakor ran np a big bill
and a few days ago pretended to settle by
giving Mr. Law , the proprietor , a draft
for $50. This was accepted bv that gen
tleman who returned to Hakor a sinull
balance in cash. The draft has since
been discovered to be worthless , having
been returned protested.
Yesterday Manager Nocdharn of tin
hotel appeared in police court and swon
out a warrant for Baker's arrest , on :
charge of defrauding the hotel to tin
amount of his bill , $ < J5.G5.

Contractor Corny Performs a Deec
Which Averts And Accident.
J , O. Coi'by , the well known contrao
tor of tlds city , performed an act Tues
day which averted u serious catastrophe
nt the same time that it brought one upoi
himself. During the parade of th
Knights of Pythias band and lodges , i
horse attached to a telephone poln ii
front of Drexel & Maul's , on Farnan
street , became frightened and started 't
dash up the street , which was tlirongo
with vehicles and people. Some on
would surely have been hurt had nc
Mr. Corby , who was standing by , flnni
one arm around the neck of the ufl'righte
animal and with the other hold on to th
telephone polo. The horse did his bos
to break loose from the grasp of Mi
Corby , but that gentleman was there t
stay. Ho held the animal until som
one came to his rescue. His hand wa
.badly lacerated , but otherwise he wti
TlitU Humane Society Arrctt.
To the Editor of the BEE : In you
issue of Tuesday allusion was made t
the arreit of McLaughlln by the tiger
of the Humane society , in which an a
tempt is made to give the impression t
the public that the man was arrested fc
"clipping11 horses , and that this will L
made a test case to determine who the
"clipping" horses is cruelty to annual ;
the names of a number of prominci
horsemen are mentioned who , it is salt
will bo subpa-iuicit as witnesses to gi\
their opinions. The plain tacts are sin
ply these : The man was arrested , not I
the agent of the Humane society , but t
Oflicer Turnbull ; not for "clipping"
lioreo , but for beating the animal wll
an iron rod , as several rcsponsib
gentlemen who ulno witnessed tl
affair will testify. The Humane socle
linn never "mado war upon horse clii
ping " A suggestion by one ot the met
bcrs that midwinter , during the coldc
weather , was scarcely the proper time
hear a horse of its warm coat is n
ranking war upon clipping by ai
means , nor do we know of any mpmb
of the society who opposes cliDpU
( orwa at the proper time , Oflicer Tur
bull arrested this man tor what appeared
to him and others to be an Inhuman
treatment of the animal , and it is greatly
to the credit of that olllcor and would re
dound with credit to all the members of
the force to bo equally viirllant in this di
rection. As wo have said repeatedly , it
Is not the Intention of the Humane soci
ety to annoy or meddle with others' af
fairs , but to enforce a law on
our statute books which will
put a stop to scones which
are distressing to human people and n
disgrace to our citv. We have known
valuable horses to bo ruined through the
violent , ungovernable temper of grooms
and drivers , and he must Indeed bo a
( juuer owner who does not appreciate a
society which through purely human mo
tives endeavors to protect his property.
This c.i o hits boon reported to the socie
ty's attorney as a case of cruelly boating
n horse , and will bo so tried , and those
who imagine they will regaled by a
sproad-eairlo trial lo determine whether
"clipping" ' is cruelty to animals will bo
disappointed , as this will not enter into
the case at all.

Improving a Knapsack ,
Colonel Mcrriam the genial soldier from
from Fort Laramie , is in the city
shaking hands with his friends. Ho has
procured a long leave of absence and is
on his way to Europe. He intends to
visit the different military headquarters
of the continent for the purpose of ob
taining points which will c.iable him to
improve the new knapsack which ho has
just Invented. This is a knapsack which
is intended to throw its weight not upon
the back of the soldier , but upon his hips
where it will rest easily. In long
marches , a knapsack , when perfected by
Colonel Mnrrinm , will bo a quiet factor
in preventing "waste of energy. "

ODDS AND ENDS.
Stray Ijcavua Front a Ituportor'a Note
"Yes , the corner of Thirteenth and
Farnam streets Is going to loom up
big and don't you forget It , " said
an old settler Tuesday. The two.
bank buildings will bo grand busi
ness structures. Than Meyer II ell-
matin , one of our oldest and most enter
prising citizens , lias added a story to his
block , which will correspond with the
other corners in line shape. Mr. Hell-
man deserves the credit of having built
the first brick business block of worth in
Omaha. He don't say much , but he acts
every time when action Is necessary. In
that block of his were at dill'oront times
the military headquarters , the Western
Union telegraph olllco. the first police
court and several other prominent olliccs.
1 understand he intends to continue this
spring's improvement by fixing up the
A. B. Snowden liquor store with one of
the finest plate glass fronts In the city.
Oh , yes , the Thirteenth street coruer
will boom as long as such men as Meyer
llellmaii have anything to do with it. '
"The scarcity of houses in Omaha , "
said a railroadoflicialyesterday morning
"is shown by this Hood. People who have
been driven from their homos by the
high water have tramped every street
and alley in the city looking in
vain for hou ns to rent. They have
been compelled to seek temporary
shelter in cow stables and such places ,
and the cold weather which seems to have
come with the Hood makes their condi
tion extremely uncomfortable. There is
furniture In nearly all the submerged
houses , and the effect of the soaking
muddy water will bo disastrous.
