On Tuesday of this week the now city
government of Lincoln will tnko the
ruins and conduct the n flairs of the city
for the coming year. At the meeting
of the old administration to-night the vote
of the city election will be canvassed , the
result announced and the certificates to
the fortunatos will be issued. There is
ulready u cloud on the horizon for the
new mayor in the shape of the ordinance
introduced increasing the saloon license
from $1,000 to $ 1 , 500 per year. There nro
& few of the stronger fealoons , financially
or in patronage , . ! ! ! the city that either
favor or are indlfluruiit to tlio increase ,
while the others arc opposed to the pro
posed change. The doyen saloons that
fought side by side with the prohibition-
Jsts for the election of Mr , S.ivyer arc
Bomewhnt perturbed over the sudden in
troduction of increased ficense , and it
looks as though one of the lirst clashes
the now mayor would have to meet would
be the question of standing by his saloon
supporters and the old license or stand
with his prohibition support and assist
In inceca'jiiig tlielicenso. With these two
clas-ics of election day charmers con
fronting the mayor lie evidently feels
how happy he could bo with either were
the other dear charmer awuy. Some of
Die saloon interests have been anxious to
nave the old administration issue the li
censes for the coming year , but that
under the new law is an impossibility ,
nnd oven could it be done the retiring ad
ministration would not trench upon the
rights and prerogatives of the new in
questions of this character that shape
the policy of the administration. Under
the new chnrlcY the number of appoint
ive positions are both increased in num
ber and importance. The board of pub
lic works is one of the additions , and
while Mayor IJurr a short time ago sub-
mined : i list of name ? for these places the
council has deferred confirmation
that the now mayor could exercise -
ciso his own judgment in select
ing a board under the admin
istration. The only mcmber'on Mayor
Burr's list that is anxious for a place on
the board and who will presumably bo
appointed is Mr. 8. McConiga , and the
miggcstion of his nnmo meets but httlo
comment either way. The appointment
of chief of poliec is thought to be closely
to the door of I' . II. Cooper , the veteran
democrat and ice dealer of this city.
This combination may seem somewhat
strange , but the fact remains that Mr.
Cooper Is a democrat and deals in frozen
The organization of the council in se
lecting a president promises to bo inter
esting. The council is about us evenly
mixed in republicans , democrats and
prohibitionists as could well bo. and
what it will evolve is doubtful. N. C.
Brook , the present president of the coun
cil , is understood to bo a candidate for
rc-clrction , but his fast and loose game
ngainst his own party will not commend
him to the republicans and the demo
crats and prohibs will probably have a
man of their own. History i& repeating
itself In Mr. Brock's case , and in the cam
paign just past ho has rode as many
horses as ho did a number ot years ago ,
when ho ran for mayor , took two or three
nominations and then was defeated. But
the most agony exists in the police de
partment , and in this branch it is be
lieved that all In the police force will bo
left and the department reorganized en
tire. Petitions of applicants are lloating
through the streets daily cu route to the
ollico of the mayor-elect.
The republican city committee met in
business session Saturday evening to
make linal settlement of thn campaign
woric. Mr. Allen W. Field , the member
of the committee from the Fourth ward
who bolted the Uokijt after it was nom
inated and after he was made a member
of the committee , was not present , but
the committee without any hesitation
proceeded to declare his place vacant on
the committee on account of his leaving
the party , and Mr. John 1) . Knight
was appointed to the vacancy.
Mr. Field has been greatly honored by the
republicans of Lincoln in the past , being
a member of the legislature , -speaker ol
the house and at the present time city at
torney under a republican administra
tion. lo was also u candidate for con
gress last fall and as such invoked the
support of nil republicans , while six
months afterward hn can as calmly as the
oldest mugwump in the land turn his
back upon the party that has honored
him and support a radical democrat whenever
never in his lifa lost sight of the party to
which ho belonged. The republicans of
the city will approve the act of the com
mittee in decapitating one of the fathers
of the lawyer propaganda , and if the
committed will go further and loix < J a good
challenger with a stuffed club and stand
4 him at the polling place at the next re
publican primary in the fourth ward to
attend to the case of Gcro and Hathaway
if they attempt to call themselves repub
licans and vote , they will only do their
duty to their party organization.
Aell known attorney of the city calls
the attention of the Br.E to the lact that

unit has been , violating its louse with the
Btatn lands , and is in n condition that
the attorney general could , through the
complaint of any taxpayer , commence

question whether a new town six miles
away will help the city proper , especially
if it means the locating of industries at
that point. In connection with the plat

its shops to the new town is revived , all
of which careful men consider not worth

The most serious question confronting
the city of Lincoln at the present time is
the wholly inadequate water supply , the
water supply running so low that the
mayor has issued n proclamation calling
attention of citizens to the fact
of the necessity of using no
more than is absolutely neces
sary. The way the city is growing at the
present time the present source of supply
will not bo adequate to one-half meet the
demand in six months' time and a water
famine is imminent at almost any time.

"Knookings" That Commenced in Hydes-

Tlic Fox Misters Their Rochester
Knocking * Vlilt to Cincinnati
Tlio Imtu Convention Won
derful Psychometric I'ower.
Cincinnati Commercial Gazette : Early
in 1813 the family of John U. Fox , at
Hydesvlllo , a small village in Wayne
county , N. Y. , was disturbed by myster
ious rapplngs , wkich were heard mostly
in one of the bedrooms. Efforts to trace
the noises to a tangible causn were fruit
less , but after discovering that the strange
presence could converse by answering to
the call of the alphabet , the members of
the Fox family were startled by its de
claration that they were talking with a
The announcement of this fact pro
duced great excitement at llydojvillo ,
nnd the neighbors flocked to the residence
of Mr. Fox to investigate for themselves.
The wonderful presence continued to
manifest itself by raps and wns persis
tent in the declaration of its spiritual na
ture and occult powers. It was at length
ascertained that the raps came only when
the two younger daughters of the family ,
Catharine and Morgaretta , were present ,
nnd then the fame of the "Fox girls"
spread faa and wide , because they had "a
familiar spirit. "
Soon after these occurrences the Fox
familv removed to Rochester. N. Y. , in
which city the mvsttrious manifestations
continued to accompany them , and they
were soon known everywhere as tlio
"Rochester Kuockings. " It was hero
discovered by rappinz out the letters of
the alphabet 'that different spirits were
apparently usiiig this channel of commu
nication , and that almost anyone , on
coming into tlio presence of the two
girls , could get a message from what
purported to be the spirits ol departed
irictuls , the same often being accom
panied by tests whicli satisfied the inter
rogator of the spirits identity.
in a few months a new phase of the
presence was observed in the Movement
of tables and other ponderable bodies ,
but still only while these young girls
were in the loom. Such manifestations ,
all the time growing more and more re-
markablo. attracted numerous visitors
from fur distances , and the phenomenon
crc long began to probagato itself , and
to be witnessed in other families at
Rochester and elsewhere , while , as coin
ciilcnt circumstances , susceptible per
sons would sometimes fall into apparent
trances , become clairvoyant , and re-
allirn these raps and physical move
ments to bo the production of spirits.
The public meeting ; held at Corinthian
hail , at Rochester , in November , 1841) ) ,
was called at the request of the alleged
spirits , for the purpose of submitting
these phenomena to the investigation of
a committee to bo selected by the audi
ence , with a view to the publication of a
report concerning their nature and
chums , whatever the decision resuocting
these might be. The phenomena were
freely manifested through the Fox sisters ,
and were submitted to many tests , and
tlio committee , after having continued
their investigation for several days , re
ported that they were unable to trace
them to any earthly source. Upon the
announcement of this conclusion the ex
citement throughout the country was in
tense , and everywhere the men marveled
greatly at that which was very generally
regarded as a new revelation.
In May. l&oO , the Fox sisters visited
New York city , nnd then these peculiar
manifestations through their mcdiumship
became the subject of extensive news
paper discussion , and it was in the
speech of Americans everywhere. The
facts were published far and wide in
many tongues. Mediums through whom
similar manifestations were said to occur
sprang up in different parts of the coun
try , and were soon multiplied by hun
dreds and since that date spiritualism has
been a prominent theme of public discus
sion by popular writers and thinking
men and women. The manifestations
in New York were sometimes accompan
ied by phosphorescent lights and noises
liko.electrical explosions , and as all the
particulars were given in the newspapers
from day to day , excitement of the people
ple increased daily and reached fever
heat. .
In 185Uthese weird sisters , as they were
then thought to be , visited Cincinnati
and held a number of seances at the Bur-
net lioubc , A gentleman who was prcs-
nt some of these gives us some interest
ing particulars. Besides himself there
wore nine in the circle , and ho enumer
ates them as follows : Benjamin Urner.
Mr. and Mrs. Chirk Williams , James ana
Samuel Goodwin , the two mediums , their
mother , and a gentleman with whom ho
was acquainted. The names mentioned
are sullicicntly familiar to old citizens.
The rappings instantly began and Mr.
Urner said to our informant :
"Now ask if there arc any spirits prcs-
that will communicate with you. "
Such a question ia always a poser to
the neophyte. It appears to him that he
14 merely interrogating the empty air ,
and that the reply can Tie nothing more
than the echo of his own voice , and ho
hesitates. Our friend hesitated , but fin
ally nerved himself to the occasion and
repeated the question as suggested. The
number and variety of raps which in
stantly followed were a surprise to him.
llu was greatly cmbarasscd , and Miss
Margaret i-ox , observing this , told him
to write his questions , or , if he could
concentrate his mind sullicicntly , to ask
them mentally. Ho chose the latter
method and Inquired :
"Is the spirit of my mother present ? "
Answer , "Yes. "
"Is the spirit of my daughter Eliza pres
ent. "
Answered affirmatively.
He asked his mother several common
place questions , which were answered
correctly , and then :
"Mother what was the ago of my
daughter Eliza when sLo died ? "
The rapuings immediately became
regular. The lacontour did not know
they wore to bo counted , but the others
counted them.
"Twenty-two ? What was your ques
tion ? " they asked.
Ho said he had asked the ago of his
daughter at her death.
"Well , " asked ono of the company ,
"was twenty-two right ? "
Ho said it wns , for she was within a
month of that age when she died. But ,
like all anxious inquirers , he wanted still
another test.
"Mother , what was your ago when you
died ? " ho asked.
Distinctly and unequivocally ninety-
seven raps were given , which was the
correct answer.
lie asked several additional questions ,
all of which he said were answered as
only his mother could have answered
From the very beginning of the inter
rogations ho felt something striking his
knee , like a ball of wool. This ho
thought very queer , and determined to
say nothing about it Ho several times
peeped under the table to see if it could
bo some person doinir it , and continued
to foci the soft blows from something
wholly invisible to mortal ken. They
numbered about sixty per minute.
'There were raps on the table which he
did not understand , and ono of the me
dium * announced'that thp alphabet WM
called for. Through Its aid this question ;
was asked : '
"Why don't you tell ? "
"Tcli what ? " Inquired one of the
"Tho knocking oa your knee , " was
spelled out.
Our good friend wits astounded. Someone
ono asked him :
"Did you feel knocklngon your knee ? "
"Yes , " ho replied : ' but I intended
you should know nothing of it. "
"Which knee ? " was asked.
The alphabet answered , "Tho right
knee. " '
Ho attended another circle a few
evenings following that upon which
these incidents occurred , and not only
received correct answers to every ques
tion he propounded , but his chair while
occupied by him was shoved about the
room , backward nnd forward , moro than
a dozen times , without the visible touch
of any power !
Such was the experience of the gentle
man who , upon visiting this first circle ,
had determined to erect from his own
ignorance a throne of judgment upon
which to condemn these manifestations ,
but instead of this ho found his skepti
cism suddenly cured. We do not Rive
the incident tor its intrinsic merit , for it
is but ono of the hundreds of thousands
of the same kind , but its value consists
in its early date nnd connection with
those original expositors of a doctrine
whoso natal day is now being celebrated
in most of the largo cities of the United
It is natural for the average reader to
say that he docs not admire the assur
ance of any one who expects him to believe -
lievo in the occurrence as above related ,
and it is proper to reply that he is not
expected to believe in them till evidence
of their truth is presented personally to
him from the original source. Then be
lief will not bo necessary , for ho will
know. Xeno declared the existence of
a criterion to establish the truthfulness
of man's knowledge , and the spiritualist
proves to himself the soundness of Zeno's
position. But he cannot prove it to his
neighbor. The manifestations of spirit
presence must conic to every one direct.
Through an intermediate mortal they are
of no force or value.
Whatever the actual foundation of
spiritualism may be , It has undeniably
increased in &trcngth from year to year
from its beginning , and in plt'.co of the
wild-eyed , unkempt and generally dis
trait disciple of its earlydays , we now
find among its believers many alert busi
ness men and lirst class citizens. They
scout the term "believer"andinsist that
they walk by sight , without the least re
gard to faith. The best of them admit
that many impositions have been prac
ticed under the name of spiritual mani
festations , but state that in the majority
of cases fraud could not have been
palmed off even if designed , and that in
other cases there could be no possible
motive for deception , as the investiga
tions were carried on in private families ,
with their own sons and daughters for
A special dispatch to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat dated March 28 , status :
At the spiritualist convention of the
south , at its session this afternoon , the
lion. A. C. Ladd. of Georgia spoke. Ho
is denominated a normal speaker , that
is , one that speaks not in a trance state.
He spoke on ancient and modern spirit
ualism and the effect upon the human
race. He hold that 'spiritualism ' was
established as true by more perfect tests
than even the Christian religion. It af
forded tlio only absolute evidence of the
immortality of the soul , whereas specula
tive theology was founded on hearsay
evidence only. No evidence of a future
existence of the soul can bo greater than
that of the return to us of our friends
after death.
Mrs. Edith E. R. Nicklcss of Chicago ,
through the little Indian girl control , Lit
tle Sunflower , gave some tests in a trance
stato. She talked in broken English , as
it is supposed an Indian would talk , and
pointed out persons in tlio audience and
made observations about them. To a man
iiway back in the audience , she said :
"You are in the midst of troubles and
you think there is no way out of them. "
"That's so , " responded the man.
"But there is , " responded the medium.
The gentleman said this was the first
time he had ever seen the medium , nnd
that ho was not a spiritualist. A lady was
called up and told that a spirit friend ob
jected to her wearing black clothes now ,
just as much as she had objected to it
while living. The lady said that she once
had just such a friend , who was now
In the evening Mr. George Colby spoke
on the theme' liWhat lack wo yet ? " He
assumed that spiritualism has robbed
death of its1 terror and the grave of its
gloom , and had brought the sunlight ol
hope into the lives of millions , but that
millions to whom it had made this revela
tion had not yet become spiritualists because -
cause they tailed to comprehend the
philosophy of it. Ho advocated the
education of children in spiritualism tlia
they may escape becoming a prey o
bigotry or blank infidelity. On this point
he expatiated at some length.
Mrs. Isa Wilson Porter , of Chicago , the
daughter of E. B. Wilson , deceased , of
Cincinnati , gave a series of psycho
metric readings. . . Her method was to
road the history of several lives by hold
ing In her hand some familiar object o
their property , such as a handkerchief
a bunch of keys or a ring. These read
ings wont into details of personal his
tory , and were in every instance pro
nounccd correct. To a lady whom she
heard walking in the hall a few yards
she said , talking rapidiv :
"You are very positive , and you rule
your own household , and I urn glad you
do. A short time ago you gave certain
parties to understand' just what yoi
thought of them , and you did perfectly
right. You ought to have begun ot
them six months sooner than you did
The 17th of last December was a critica
time in your history. The answer 'Yes
conies to the question you are now ask
ing. Two months ago you closed a door
that you ought to have loft open. "
The lady in question said she had no
closed a door that she should have lef
open. The medium amswerpd that thi
expression was used metaphorically , and
the incident was not in her own home
but in ouo in which she was as deeply in
tcrested. The lady assented to tlio cor
rcctness of the statement 'throughout. '
Her last test was experimental. It was
standing blindfolded 'while some ono
walked in a natural manner down the
aisle , after which she was to describe the
person. She stood blindfolded , with her
back to the audience. < > n a brilliantly
lighted stage. Mr. L. MrBartlett of com
mercial college note , of Cincinnati
walked UP and down life aislo. After ho
had returned to his seat she said :
"You are a man that holds ticht your
purse strings. You are' more liberal to
others than you are to those of your own
family. You will go a mile out of your
way to help a needy one and never le
anybody know what you have done. You
are satisfied with yourself , and don't
care a bit what others nay about you.
"Three times in your life you have
been better financially , and you are more
careful now. You hare been over
whelmed in waves of sorrow , and the
waves of an angry stream bereaved you
of your two boys. I see the figures , Juno
7 , 1879 , and tbo figures 14 and 10. Tha
data was an eventful and sorrowful ono
In your life. 1 see sanctity symbolized
by a loaf oat In three parts.1' This las
symbol she did not explain.
Mr. Bartlett arose and Mid that every
word was true. Thofaotfc that two o
Mr. Bartlett's sons were drowned on
June 7,1879.
Dr. Nicholas then addressed tbo meet
ng and said ho wanted them to flub-
crlbo to the stock in the .spiritualist
iropcrty on Lookout Mountain. Ho said
hey proposed to build a college there ,
\nu they must consider that matter in
bis convention. The enterprise of in-
estment there was n profitable ono and
ull of promise , and it was worth foster *
The meetings are held in Greenwood
tall , which was brilliantly lighted. The
stage Is Hooded with light , and tlio mo-
Hum stands about the middle of it. Tha
attendance has been good. About six
uindrcd people were present to-night ,
xml their attention was perfect from
irst to last.
