The National Oporn Company.
The National Opera company loft last
night at 10 o'clock for San Francisco.
Their doluy of forty hours in Omaha ,
winch wai so vexatious to tins miinago-
mont , was caused by a hitch in the ar-
raiifiomcnts which Manager Locke had
made with the Union 1'acillc railway to
take the entire company to San Fran
cisco by special chartered trains at a cur
tain rate per mile. The amount agreed
upon was guaranteed on Wednesday
morning by the backers of the company
in Now York and all arrangements made
for the company's departure for the west
at once. At the last hour the Central
Pacific gave notice of a domurr from the
agreement made by General Passenger
Agent Morse , of the Union Pacific ,
and thereby caused the delay. Man
ager Looko could not proceed until the
Central Pacillo people given satisfactory
terms in order to avoid the great delay
that would bo necessary at Ogdcn by the
weighing and transferring of the com
pany's baggage and effects. All day yes
terday Manager Locke and the Union
Pacilic olllcials wore in telegraphic com
munications with the ollioials of the Cen
tral Pacific and the Now York capitalists
who are backing the company. In the
meantime the lesser lights of the com.
pany wore enjoying themselves. The
girls wore frisking about the depot as hap
pily and unconcernedly as though noth
ing was the matter. A largo number of
them strayed over to Kosslor's
hall , and busied themselves in
emptying beakers of lager , while these
who did not care to walk so far , made.up
a purse and ordered a plenteous supply
of Krug'a best. The men amused them
selves by playing base ball , foot ball
or cards. In fact , none of them seemed
to care whether "school kept or not. "
This line ot amusement was kept up until
8 o'clock' last night , when the difficulties
'wore announced to have been adjusted
and the switch engines were nut to work
making up the opera trains. This stopped
the merrymaking and .inaugurated a
hustle on the part of the company to got
ready for the start. Messengers were
dispatched for members who were amus
ing themselves at a distance from the
depot , and preparations begun for the
'ou ride. The train was announced to
itart at 8'30 o'clock and all was in readi
ness when Manager Locke was called up
iown to hold a conversation with Mr.
Connor and Mrs. Thurber in Now York'
This lasted until 0 o'clock and evidently
resulted satisfactorily , as the moving
orders were given very soon thereafter.
Manager lxcke was seen by a BEE re
porter as ho was hurrying to the depot
after his conference with the directors of
the company in tho'east.
"Wo ao as soon as I can reach the
train"Tie said , in response to the query
of the reporter. "Evorythmpj has been
arranged satisfactorily. The DEE was
'n error In the statement that Mr. Hunt
ngion of the Central Pacific was ininii
cal to the company. On the" contrary , he
is one of our heaviest stockholders and
was instrumental in effecting the desired
traffic arrangements with the Central
Pacific , by wnlch we are enabled to leave
to.-night. Wo have had considerable
and I desire you to express publicly my
thanks to the Omaha gentlemen who
aided mo financially during the com
pany's delay. I have just had the pleas
ure of returning thorn all the money they
advanced and 1 appreciate their kind
ness very much.-
"VN ill you be able now to reach San
Francisco in time to commence your en
gagement on Monday nightJ"
"Wo will roach San Francisco some
time on Sunday. Wo have n contract
for a twenty-ono-night engagement in
San Francisco at a guarantee of $1,000 a
night , commencing on Monday night ,
and wo will get there in time to give the
company one night's rest before our sea
son opens. We will have a right of way
and will make the trip as Apidly as
wheels can carry us , stopping only for
water tindfuel. "
At 9:80 : o'clock the trains were pulled
up on the main line of the Union Pacific
and started for the Hying trip to San
Francisco at n few minutes before 10
Alleged Mismanagement.
"So much has been said and written
concerning the financial troubles of the
National Opera company , and the prob
ability and possibility of the venture
proving a financial success , that I desire
to add my opinion , formed from a knowl
edge of the affairs of the company , " said
a gentleman prominently connected with
the management of the company to a
OEE reporter last night. ' 'The enterprise
is the greatest one of IU kind over at
tempted and yet In the right hands could
be made a financial success. Under the
present management it cannot bo made
to pay. I say this with all respect to Mr.
Locke. Ho Is a manager of ability , but
there ia something flagrantly wrong in
the present order of things. Treasurer
J aft ray has been quoted in the HUB as
placing the expenses of the company at
about ? H,00 ( ) a day. You will be surprised
to lenrn whore this expense comes in. In
the first place Mr. Look gets : 800 a week
for Ins services and has full managerial
power. He has thren treasurers at' an ex
pense of between $500 and $000 a week.
Ho has four door keepers and never uses
but ono of them. Neither of them re
ceives less than f50 a week. Ho had four
electricians at salaries that are com
manded by the experts in this lino.
Ho cannot , and does not furnish work
enough ot this kind to keep one man
busy. Ho has five stage carpenters at big
salaries and yet when the company ar
rived hero the services of a local stage
carpenter were employed to arrange
the stage and scenery in the exposition
building. Then ho hns three or four sur
plus ngnnti who seem to have nothing to
do except to travel with the company
and draw their salaries with becoming
regularity. In all , Mr. Locke pays out of
the pockets of the stockholders in this
great enterprise at least $2,500 per week
for services that could bo very well dis
pensed with. Of hia object or gain in so
doing I know nothing and faro less , ex
cept that as a musician and lover of such
enterprises I hate to see such u magnifi
cent enterprise Injured by apparent
needless extravagance. The company
also pays Theodore Thomas $1,000 ii
week for the use of his or
chestra. Thomas gets 11,000 a week
additional for his name and services
while he stays In New York and entrusts
the direction of the orchestra to an as
sistant who pulls nn additional $500 a
week for his services. Of course Thomas
and his renowned orchestra are neces
sary to thn success of thff enterprise , but
the owners of the company are foolish to
allow Locke to pay auch enormous sal
aries to persons from whom ho receive *
no dirrct service.'Outside of these ex
tra vajjuuci's the expenses of the company
are not so abominably great. Jncli gets
$1,000 n week , but with this exception
the salaries of the singers are not largo
and the number of the company tends to
lessen the pro rata expense. Properly
managed the venture would prove a
financial success. "
A AVIlil Humor of a Union Depot.
The rumor was spread last evening
that the railroads at present terminating
their lines at the transfer depot and also
the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis &
Omaha , Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri
Valley , and Missouri Pacific had come to
an agreement upon a grand union depot
project in Omaha. The Union Pacific
and H. & M. were not reported to be in
the combination , it was further stated
that the purpose was to condemn for
depot purposes a largo and valuable portion
tion of the city lying north of Dodge
street and cast of Twelfth street.
The Information at first came from Mr.
Frank Delono , and ho was sought. Ho
slated that his brother informed him of
it. His brother could not bo found , but
C. K. Mayno , F. A. Nash and several
other gontlemcn , who were supposed to
bo in a position to know , wcro inter
viewed and cacli and all declared that
they know nothing about It.
Mr. Nash being witli the Chicago &
Milwaukee , which company is conceded
to bo Interested in the Nebraska Central
project , ho was believed to bo good
' authority. Ho stated that at present the
relations of various companies were so
strained that ho did not believe it possi
ble that such a combination could bo
Mr. Mayno , as ono of the projectors of
the cable line which proposes to build on
Dodge street , was also regarded as very
likely to bo informed. Ho awowed that
he had never heard of such a thing and
could not credit it.
The generally accepted theory was
that the rumor sprang from the condem
nation proceedings which the Nebraska
Central is taking-to secure bridge premi
ses and depot grounds , presumably 1'oT
the benefit of the Milwaukee.
iiElilIn Throws Moth Twice
Another Contest To-night.
Uetwccn two hundred and tlireo hun
dred men with their hats on and enjoying
the solace of the weed made up a small ,
black group in the vastnc of the expo
sition hall last evening when Colonel J.
H. McLlauglilin , the champion collar
and elbow wrestler of the United States ,
and Charles Moth , the champion Griuco-
Koman wrestler , mot in a throe-stylo
match. John Prince was selected as
The first bout was collar and elbow ,
both men wearing small jackets. Time
was called at 9:113 : , and as the wrestlers
secured a firm hold on each other's
jackets the comparison between them
was especially noticeable. McLaughlin
was the perfect picture of the Hercules
that ho is , but a Hercules out of tri m.
While his ponderous biceps , chest and
leg muscles showed m nil their sym
metry , it was evident that they wore soft ,
and at the bolt was a tendency to corpo-
rosity which belongs to the business man
and not the athlete. Moth , on the other
hand , while not making the show of
muscle which his opponent did , was
clearly haid and wiry and m splendid
competing condition. Where his mus
cles appeared they stood out knotted and.
clearly defined and at the waist there was
no stomach to impede his cat-like move
The contestants tugged a little at
each other's collars and .tapped
logs with their foot , but no move
ments of strength were shown
until the third minute , when McLaughlin
secured a grapevine lock and in a Hash
Moth was down. But in going ho had
turned half around and slippery as an
eel , ho broke away. Again Mao caught
Moth with his favorite grapevine , and
again the agile German turned in the air.
A third time they struggled , for a brief
space , and then McLaughlin made n
lightning trip with a powerful twitch and
Moth lauded fairly nn his shoulders. The
crowd cheered and commenced to warm
up into considerable enthusiasm. The
time was D:14 : } . *
After a ten minutes' breathing spoil
they mot in the Gncco-Homan , Moth's
favorite , and in which ho is the acknowl
edged champion. Attor a few minutes
close hugging and two or throe tugs by
each to test the other's stability , Me-
Laughliu turned Moth and sent him
dowmynrd. It appeared when ho started
with his back fairly to the lloor as if ho
would sutler quick defeat at his own
game , but ho whirled in the air and
struck on his hands and knees. Then as
McLaughlin tried to turn him ho literally
ran out from uiulor the Michigan Hercu
les and was on his feet before the latter
had * hardly time to regain his own.
Again Moth was forced down by his
powerful antagonist's strength ami a second
end time he made ono ot his surprising
Hums and broke away , amid vociferous
applause. When they came together
again it appeared as if ono or the other's
nook would bo broken. They turned
and strained and their muscles stood out
like bunches of iron. McLaughlin twice
secured the hold ho was after , but Moth
slipped out. Then Mac found his grip
and made a spcndid turn and force , put
ting Moth on his head but the latter
bridged just us skillfully , keeping
his shoulders from the iloor , and rolled
out from under. Again" and a
third time this was done , and finally both
antagonists came to the lloor. Then
Moth for a time forced the struggle and
twice ho nearly turned McLaughlin , the
l.Utcr'a immense strength nlono saving
him. Moth seemed to be , and in reality
was , loading his antagonist to attempt to
catch his nock in a full Nelson , -so that
ho might break it and catch the arm
lock. In this ruse ho was successful , and
on n third trial , while McLaughlin had
him in the air , Moth turned and caught
the lock and placed the doughty colonel
squarely upon his shoulders. The cheer
ing was loud and long , and Moth was
accorded n notch higher in the public
estimation. . The time was 15:1 : } .
At the juncture , after the men had re
tired to rest and rub down , J. C. Farley ,
of San Francisco , appeared and said that
ho had proposed to.challenge the winner
of the match , which challenge ho then
made publicly. Ho stated that ho had
been informed that Moth had called him
n haymaker , and ho was anxious to make
hay of Mdth in a wrestling match as soon
as ho could. Ho was anxious , though , to
wrcstlo the winner of the match first.
Moth then said that he had never hoard
of the gentleman , Farley , but ho would
moot him at any time and would wrestle
him then and there on the spot in any
McLaughlin said that ho was
ready to wrestle the gentle
man but wanted to dispose
of Moth first. After ho had attended to
Moth ho would meet the stranger at any
time or for any amount , or he would
wrestla both him and Moth on the follow
ing night. ( Applause. )
The third bout was then called and the
men played witn each other cautiously
for a few minutes. Then they closed
and McLaughlin put bis grapavlno lock
at work. There was a second's tug and
Moth wont in the air and down on his
back. Hut ho bridged successfully and
got on his foot. The next time , though ,
McLaughlin caught the grapevine lock
on his antagonist , ho throw him on his
side and gradually forced his shoulders
down. The jacket which Moth wore ,
according to the claims of tbo ( Jrunlia
man , played an important part In thh ,
ai it pormlttod .MiiLaughlln to choke
him. The fall ( In'Ssft ) and match were
awarded lo McLajgilm. | )
McLaughlin was seconded by Parshall
and Moth bv Haldwin.
At the announcement by the referee of
the result of the match there were loud
calh for the mon M take oil' tholr jackets
and wrcstlo catch-m-catch-can. This
McLaughlin refused't to do at the timo.
but ho agreed to Moth's proposition that
to night they sliohld1 moot again in the
samu place for a m'afbh of Hvo bouts-
collar and elbow , .Graoco-Koman , catch-
as-catch-can , side , hold and back hold.
The winner of throq is to take the gate
receipts and a purau of $100. Therefore ,
unless there is some hitch in obtaining
the hall , the giants will meet again this
Charles Gilday's comedy company
produced their play , "A Piece of Pie1 '
last night to an audience that filled every
available space in the theater. The play
is a farclal comedy and is constructed
for laughing purposes and serves that *
end admirably. From the beginning to
the finish of the performance the audl-
cnco wai convulsed with laughter. Miss
Fannie Heatio Is a very catchy and pleas-
inir soubrette and as n dancer is unex
celled by any ono. Charles Gilday Is a
comedian of great merit and resorts tone
no bullbnery to obtain laughter or ap
plause from his audiences. Ho has : i
natural humor and his methods are legit
imate. The play , "A Piece of 1'io , " is
pure and free from all the suggestiveness -
ness which usually characterizes plays of
the farce comedy order and depends
solely upon the .situations and ability of
the company to create merriment. The
play will bo repeated to-night and will
d/mbtlcss draw another largo houso.

J. M. Cross- and Nelly Scott were iir

Fourteenth street chop house , it appears , '

claimed had been presented to her by a
tin-horn gambler named lloskins. The
lover became jealous of Nelly's partiality
for Cross and had them both arrested on
the charge of larceny. The case was
called before JudgeStcnborg , who de
cided that it was a love affair which did
not merit judicial interference. Hoskins
got possession of the watch to find that
Nelly had succeeded in mashing the
crystal and breaking off a few of the
hands , "The watch ain't wortli $3. as it
is , " said Hoskins plaintively. "I'll give
you $3 for it , " said Officer Turnbull , who
was in the court. "It's a go , " replied
Hoskins and Iho transfer was made and
the case dismissed. Nelly now promises ,

The Gypsy Bond.
To the Editor of 'the BKE : The
resident who lives near Hanscom
park and who so loudly complains about
the "thieving gypsies" is evidently off
his base and should look for the thieves
elsewhere. Old Mr. Reynolds , the
"gypsy king , " who is at the head of the
band , together with all the members of
tho- band , enjoy a high reputation all
through the state of Iowa for honesty
and fair dealing. I have been acquainted
with him and his family for six years.
Mr. Luther Owen , druggist at 505 North
Sixteenth street , has known the band for
thirteen years and there are many other
persons in the city well acquainted with
them and wo dislike to hoar any such
evil attributed to them as wo consider
them very worthy people.

Omaha detectives have been at worker
or seine days collecting ovldenco that
will bo adduced in a sensational dlvorco
case soon to bo commenced at Nebraska
Jlty , The defendant in the case , the
woman , is now in Omaha , and , judging
'rom the evidence which represents the
abors of the detectives , has led a strange
ife , filled with sensational episodes.
Her name U MM. Nellie Grooblo. She is
a young woman , apparently not more
, han twenty-two years of ago , rathe r
. -roily and Intelligent. Her story is that
lye years ago at Moadvillo , Pa. , where
she lived with her father , who was an
artist , she full a victim to Uio wiles of a
'urnituro ' dealer named U. O. Grooblo.
She got into trouble and Greoblo was
arrested on the charge of having at-
.emptcd to have an abortion performed
upon her. The case went to the courts
and everything pointed to Grooblo's con
viction , when , in opposition to the ad-
vlco of her father and attorneys , the
woman married him and thus ended the
prosecution. About four years ago
jreoblo and his wife canio west and
located at Auburn where Grooblo was en
gaged In the furniture business. They
afterwards comoved lo Grand Island
where Grecblo cmbirkcd in saloon
business. About a year ago they
removed lo Nebraska City where Greoblo
took charge of the saloon in one nf the
liotcls. Hero , according to the woman's
story , Greoblo became negligent of 1m
dutuM toward her and finally became
abusive. In her distress of his treatment
she accepted thu sympathy and atten
tions of 11. barkeeper in Nebraska City
named McKinncy. Their relations grow
into intimacy and about foiif wenks ago
she consented to otopo with MoKinnoy.
They came to tills city where McKmney
found employment as bar lender at Iho
Merchant's hotel. The neglect from
which Iho woman suffered at her hus
band's hands was again yisiled upon her
while in the role of McKinnoy's mistress.
Ho left her at a hotel and paid but little
attention to her. She fired of this treat-
niRiit and wrolo to her husband in an ef
fort lo affect a reconciliation , Grccblo ,
however , refused to receive the sinning
anil yet sinned against woman again but
came to Omaha and put the in the
Imnlis pt the deli'clivcs for Iho purpose of
obtaining material for Iho divorce pro
ceedings which lie is instituting at

him a Ihirrd interest in the profits of such
fcalo and to compel them to execute him

for the past ten years I have known her she
has not been able to be around half the time ,
about six months ago she got so feeble she
was helpless. Her old remedies , or physi
cians , being of no avail. I sent to depo it ,
forty-five miles , and got a bottle of Hop
Bitters. It had tuch a very beneficial effect
on her that one bottle impioved h.'r so she
was nblc to daess herself and walkabout the
