Inflammable stuff with which the floors were
loaded. Tin second and third alarm was
turned In and twenty engines were soon
working on the building. Despitu thocarll- ot thu hour a largo crowd soon gathered
and watched the work of destruction. A
lance standplpe was erected and poured a
heavy stream of water Into the top story. The
floors began to fall within three-quarters of
an hour after the start of trio fire. The lire-
men say. they had never before seen so raftd
ana complete destruction of a large estab

Joining buildings , which are occupied by
wholesale jewelry and millinery houses.
McUrath , the owner of the stock of

dollars , probably the largest stock carried by
any firm In America. The loss on stock Is
estimated by Insurance companies nt from
four to five hundred thousand dollars. Ihe

Doing * In Railroad Circles.
CincAno , April 13 , The Panhandle road
has made the same rates on freight from
rittsburg toKcokuk and Burlington as It
makes to St. Louis. As the quarrel between
the eastern and western lines has resulted
in the abrogation of prorating and local rates
are changed to and from Chicago , this re
sults In all of the western business from Pitts-
burg being diverted from Chicago. The
Lk Shore road , which Is a competitor for
rittsburg business , and only connects with
Chicago lines , Is threatening retaliation
against the Panhandle.
The committee appointed by the-Western
Passenger association to prepare a report re
garding excursion rates submitted one to
day. It directs that special rates shall be
given to state fairs and large conventions
and gatherings , such as Knights Templar ,
Odd Fellows and the Grand Army of the Ite-
publlc. The association Is now considering
whether these excursions shall be conducted
on the old certificate plan or thrown open to
the public on the date when the conventions
ahall bo held.
The members ot the Central Traffic associa
tion passenger department continued in
session to-dav revising their rules to fit the
aew law. The differences of opinion on
essential points were so marked , however ,
that but little progress was made.

The Meeting of the State Association
In South Omaha Yesterday.
A regular mooting of the Live Stock
Shippers' association was hold at the
stock exchange building , at South
Omaha , yesterday afternoon. In the ab
sence of H. B. Dibble , thu president of
the association , First Vice President An
derson occupied the chair. The live
stock situation and the railroad rates
were fully discussed , and one and all
agreed that something must be done to
remedy some of the existing abuses. J.
G. Hall , Gibbon ; H. B. Miller , Wayne ;
and A. W. Rathburn , David City , wore
elected members of Iho association. The
committee appointed at the last mooting
to wait upon the stock yards conipany
in reference to the condition of the yards
and the manner of handling stock and
upon the disposal of dead and cripple -
plo hogs gave a very full report.
They found the Stock Yards company
willing to do about all that was asked of
them , admitting the demands of the
shippers to bo Just. The Anglo-American
Packing company , who have been buying
alt the crippled hogs , agreed to take into
consideration uny plan proposed by the
shippers and to do all they could to make
fair compensation for what they bought.
The Rendering company reported that
they wcro paying Chicago prices for
dead hogs , which ought to bo satisfactory
to the shippers. The resolution , which
was introduced at the last meeting , to so
change the constitution of the association
as to admit to membership parties from
outside the state , was laid over until the
next meeting. The following was theu
unanimously adopted.
Whereas , It appears from good evi
dence that the railroads are discriminat
ing against Omaha and are not acting in
good faith with the shiupors , iu the way
of transportation and rates , therefore ,
Resolved , That a committee of
flvo bo appointed to investigate
.tho matter and matco n report
in full. The following gentlemen were
appointed members of the committee :
D. Anderson , Columbus ; James Danloy ,
Ashland ; A. C. Virgin , Uttca ; James
Foley , Blair ; John Lansing , I'airflolil.
After an informal discussion of various
topics of interest to shippers the mooting
adjourned. The next mooting will beheld
hold on the second Wednesday in July
unless it is thought necessary by the
president to call iv special meeting before
that time.
L'ho association is in a very prosperous
condition and its members number over
fifty , all of them well known shippers.
The secretary , Mr. John Wigirius , of Co
lumbus , has had the preamble and by.
laws printed , for the uenutit of the mem
bers and ot shipper * , who are thinking
ot joining thn association. Ho has also

Moth's Methods.
Charles Moth , the wrestler , will moot
Colonel J. H. McLaughlin , of Minneapo
lis , in a wrestling match at the exposi
tion building to-night. The match will
bo n good ono , as it is the meeting of two
men who arc especially good In this line
of athletic sport. As ( hero is an effort
being made , however , to got the sports
of Omaha into thn hands of square men ,
it is hoped that Moth will pack his collar
box as soon as this match is over and join
the army of sporting men of his ilk who
have floated out of the oityin response to
the demand of the patrons of sports for
good attractions in the hands of square
men. Tnat Moth is n wrcstlor of ability ,
there is no doubt , quoted opinions to the
contrary notwithstanding. Colonel
McLaughlin , who 1ms the reputation
of being ono of the squarest
sports in the country , And the
acknowledged champion of all collar
and elbow wrestlers , sixes Moth up an n
very had man to handle , especially in
Grjeco-Roman contests , iu which ho is
especially skilled. Colonel McLaughlin ,
however , is careful to have all his deal
ings with Moth in black and white as lie
considers him a little scaly in business
transactions , There has boon a crcat
run of suckers in the stream of sport In
Omaha during the past half year nud
Moth docs not occupy a back seat in the
procession by any moans. Ho has - resorted
sorted to decidedly questionable methods
in his matchmaking , and has convinced
tlioso with whom lie has had dealings
that Colonel McLaughlin's estimate of
him is correct. During his eTorts ( to get
up a match with McLaughlin to take
place at the exposition building on March
28 ho oven wen so far ns to sign the namn
of a BKE reporter to a telegram
urging McLaughlin to como to
Omaha at onco. In this
connection a little explanation may bo
timely. The first match between Moth
and McLaughlin was arranged in part by
T. W. Eck , the bicyclist , while ho was in
this oity. When Mr. Eck wont away ho
gave Colonel McLaughlin the name of n
BEK reporter , who ho thought would
look after the colonel's interest in the
Match. As McLaughlin did not want to
have any direct dealings with Moth , ho
wrote to the reporter requesting him to
make the match on his ( McLaughlin1 s )
part. The reporter replied that ho could
take no part in the mtmagomorit of any
affair that ho might bo called upon to
criticise , and suggested that McLaughlin
should como on and look after his own
interests if he was afraid to allow Moth
to make the match. The letter was duly
received by Colonel MoLaughlin , who
was surprised to receive immediately
hereafter two telegrams , ono signed
"Sporting Editor of the BEE" and the
other by the name of a reporter ,
telling him to como out ntonce , as every
thing had boon arranged and a good
house was assured. Thcso telegrams , it
has been ascertained , wore sent by Moth ,
who deliberately committed forgery to
further his own interests. Moth knew
hat Colonel MoLaughlin was sick on
March 33 nnd could not bo here to take
part in the match which was booked for
: hatdato. Moth is not anxious to try
conclusions with Colonel McLaughlin
and made a deliberate attempt on that
date to gull the public by scouring their
money and giving thorn a substitute hip-
: ) odromo fa fee between himself and
Adolph Royco. He has been cornered
now , however , and will have to wrestle
to-night or lose all claims to any title ,
earned or self-assumed , that he may now

At 12:30 : o'clock Mayor Boyd proposed
tlio toast , "Our Guests , " which was
drank standing. Mr. Coutant was iho
first to reply. Ho said that when leaving
homo in the evening ho explained to his
wife the object of his vidit down town.
She remarked that , as she understood it.
ho was going to attend his otlicml funeral
and Mr. Gallagher's christening , lie
said be had nothing to say of the past
management of the oflice , except that ho
would have dona better with better
health , lie thanked the bondsmen who
had served him for four years , Ho also
thanked the proas for their courteous
treatment of his ollicial career , and re
ferred to Iho fact that ho had never been
made the subject of editorial criticism by
the press of cither party. Ho referred to
the imperative demand for additional
room for the postolllco depart
ment and prophesied that his
successor would be greatly incon
venienced by this lack of accomodations.
He closed by wishing lib ) successor a most
successful terra of oTtico.
Mr. Gallagher followed Mr. Coutant
la R response to tbo toast "Our Quoits. "
Ho wittingly compared h\s \ position to
that of Nasby vrlio waited so long for
Bascom to bo removed from the post-
oflica at the corner * and finally se
cured hii coveted position only
after * bis predecessor had re
fused to bold tha place any

of U manner ( which hi * appointment
had been received by the press aud the
people aud promised to administer the
affairs ot the olllco to the best of his
. ' '
ability. ,
Mayor Boydjrpsb in response to the
rather indoliiillotijist , : "Omaha. " Ho re
sponded in an [ Indefinite manner , refer
ring first to liis'possession of the opinion
that a chaiigo in lulminlstratioti of

review of the Wt > , the subject of his
toast , and a pleasing prophecy of her
future greatness.
"Tho Bar" was the toast to wnioh Gen
eral J. C. Cowin responded in a decid
edly entertaining manner. He said ho
was like Mayor Boyd iu 'the respect that
the successful man was always Ills first
choice. Ho congratuhitcp Mr. Gallagher
upon the fact that hU term of olllco
would bo a short one. The republicans ,
lie said , would not bo two yours in re-
movinc the democratic otllcoholdcrs
after the next election.
Mr. E. W. Bartlett responded to the'
toast "Nebraska. " picturing the remark
able growth of the state and prophesying
a great future development.
Speeches wore also made in response
to toasts , by J. C. Calhoun , O. H. Roth-
acker , F. R. Morrlssoy , G. E. Prltchott ,
W. F. Gurley and C. S. Montgomery.
The meeting adjourned by drinking to
the toast offered by Mr. Rothackor , "Tho
blood of nationality thicker than the
water of partisanship. "
The opera house was comfortably filled
last night with admirers of Louis James ,
who won recognition hero in past sea
sons when ho supported Lawrence Bur
ro tt. His capabilities as a star wcro sat
isfactorily demonstrated in "Virginius"
aud roused instant nnd continuous on-
thuslasm in his auditors. His line Roman
bearing more strongly identified him
with the part which ho eminently adapted
to his personality. His acting is power
ful and at times majestic , with an under
lying current of fine pathos tnat sug
gested a gonuinu emotion and forced
into greater relief the lierco grandeur of
his climaxes. Ono good thing that may bn
said of Mr. James is that ho does not rant.
Ho is its refined as lie is versatile. Marie
Wainwrlght , as Virginia , gave an imper
sonation that had all the attributes of
sweet womanliness and innocence. H-er
acting charms by its naturalness and
grows gradually upon the auditor until it
compels commendation. F. C. Moslov ,
as Icilius , shared largely the honors of
the ovoning. His lines were delivered
with marked intelligence and fine elocu
tion. F. C. Hucbner , as Appius Claudius ,
was good , as wereGeorge Fawcott and
James Cnrran iU'thcir parts.
Notwlthstandingitho weather this the
ater was well tilled1 to witness "Collars
and Cuffs. " The , cpmical situations and
witty dialogue served to send the audi
ence away well pleased. Miss Fannie
Bean repeated her success , her singing
and dancing being excellent. Mr. Chas.
Gilday's interpretation of Willy Waddle
is extremely funny.f To-night the com
pany produce an ? entire new bill. The
play being "A Pie'co of Pie. " Now songs
ana dances will , bo introduced and a
pleasant evening's entertainment is in
store for any who may attend.
An Act of.tjrent Dnrlnff.
Road Master J , ' P. Taylor of the B. &
M. reports an incldont of mobt commend
able bravery and , forethought upon the
part of an Omaha switchman named T.
U. Egan. A few "ifriys ago a traiu of
reight cars was backing along the B. &
VI. between Gibson and this city on the
; rack which runs down to the river bot-
; om. Egan was upon the head car , the
ono most distant from the engine , when
10 saw a little four year old child
upon the track some few yards ahead.
Quick as n Hash ho descended the ladder ,
swung himself around upon the brake
beam and throw his feet under the cars
until ho secured a hold upon the trucks
with them , then , holding on with his
foot , ho lot go with both hands and
reached out and grasped the child as the
train bore down upon it at the rate of ton
miles an hour. It was a bravo act , at
tended with great risks , and it was all
done in a moment.

low Mr. Ilnxtor of Wyoming tlccaino
Executive and Then Stopped Hown.
Among the passengers who went west
ward last evening wai George W. Haxtor ,
of Choyounc , and Ins family. Mr , Baxter
cnjoya the distinction probably of being
n territorial governor with thn shortest
crm on record. After President Cleveland
> coamo settled comfortably in the big
arm chair at the white house , Iho demo
cratic "war hossos" of Wyoming ro-
olced with great rejoicing. They had
ilways been under republican admlnls-
rations and consequently had always
tad republican officials to bow down bo
or o and worship , as it woro. The olco-
ion of u democratic president was , there
fore , to thorn , a nuw dispensation. Can
didates became at once as numerous as
ho iack rabbits of the fertile valleys of
ho North Platlo. But the rosy-huud an-
icipations of tlio long-suffurring democ
racy wcro not reali/.od ns promptly
us had been expected. It was
Iko pulling tooth to got the republican
appointees suspended. Francis E. Warren -
ron , the governor , hold on most severely
and tenaciously. As the months rolled
> n nnd , despite most earnest work at
Washington , no complaints were listened
to , apparently , by the president , the
icmocrats of the territory became
wrathy nnd they prayed dally for
some opportunity to supplant the genial
iVarron with a hido-bouud democrat.
Sir. Baxter , who was a candidate , finally
hit upon the idea of having a complaint
sent to the land ollico regarding
Jovornor Warren's fences around public
and. With that as 'an excuse , Warren
was suspended and Baxter , who had se
cured influential southern support , was
appointed. But ho scarcely had time to
qualify before information was in the
lands of the commissioner of the gen
eral land ollico which tended to show
lint it was n case of kettle call the pot
) lack , only more HO. The now governor
mil fenced in more public land than thu
) ld governor had over dreamed of unclos-
ng ; and ho had done it , too , after thn
order of the president forbidding such
jnclosurcs , while whatever olYcnso of the
dnd that had boon committed by W.irron
KU ! boon long before thu land officials
had paid any attention to the matter ,
ind when it was not deemed an improper
hing for the owner of adjacent suctions
of railroad land to do. In two weeks
after being appointed Mr. Baxter's
lame was withdrawn , nnd that of
Thomas Moonlight , the present gov
ernor , was substituted. Mr. Baxter was
governor jut three weeks.

It Is not commonly known that a large
proportion of the rheinatism and neuralgia
extant is traceable directly to the dlscaicd
condition orlmpcrfcct action of the kidneys
and liver : thercfoic n remedy which cures
the resulting disease must have found and
smitten the first cau c. Many persons
uninp Athlophoros for ilu'iimntistnnm ! neu
ralgia have been surprised to find that
jhronic diseases of the Ihcr nnd kidneys
lave also been greatly relieved anil they
lave written for an explanation , The fact
s , that the remedy nets directly on these
organs , cleansing them from all irritating
-ubstanccs nnd regulating their action.
Taken in connection with Athlophoros
[ 'Ills this is , without exception , the most
valuable kidney and liver remedy in the
world , and will cure a large proportion o |
hose uho have these diseases.
Charles F. Griffin , Stuart , Iowa , says ;
'I have not had an ache or pain ol rhcuma-
istn since I used the Athlophoroa , which is
now over a year ago. For three months
my store was closed , not being able to nt-
cnd lo my business nt all. My joints were
swollen nnd there did not seem to be nny
laitof my body that did not ache. After
suffering in this way until the pnln was nl-
nest beyond endurance , I went to CotCax
Springs to try the elfectR of the water. The
dav I left home I had to be carried down
stairs. Alter remaining at the Springs a
nonth I came back , being some better.
After being home a few weeks I had a re-
apse. It was at this time that I learned of
Athlophoros. I sent for a bottle of it and in
iftecn minutes after I had taken the first
dose I felt its effect ) : , and whert I had fin-
shed the third bottle I was well. I have
not had any rheumatism-since.

When putting any property
on the market , and advertising
it as desirable , I lmra invariably
confined myself to a plain unrar
nished statement of facts , never
indulging in vague promises for
the future , and the result in ev
ery case has been tliat the expec
tations of purchasers were more
than realized. I can refer with
pleasure to
Albright's Annex
And Baker Plact
as sample illustrations.
Lots in the "Annex" have
quadrupled in value and are still
advancing , whlto a street car line
is already building past Baker
Place , adding hundreds of dollars
to the value of every lot.
Albright's Choice was selected by
mo with the greatest care after a
thorough study and with the full
knowledge of its value , and I can-
conscientiously say to those Book
ing a safe and- profitable invest
ment that
Albright's ' Choice
offers chances not excelled In this
market for a sure thing.
Early investors have already reap
ed largo profits in CASH , and with
the many important improvements
contemplated , some of whioh are
now under way , every lot in this
splendid addition will proyo u bo
