City Attorney Council ntnoon yesterday
received a communication from Chair-
111.in House , of the board of public works ,
asking tils ndvico concerning the action
of a local street railway company.
Mr. House slated that notwithstanding ,
ncconlln" to thu best legal advice , none
ot the railway companies had secured u
franchise at the lutu election , one cor
poration had secretly dumped its track
material on Leavenworth street be
tween Fourteenth and Eighteenth and
was preparing to go ahead with thu work
of construction. This move was hold to
bo plainly in dufiancu of the law. It is
held that Inasmuch as none of the fran
chises obtahfud a majority of the votes
cast at the election all of thorn failed to
"L do not know , " said City Attorney
Connell when asked about the mat
ter "what company it is that is steal
ing this march on Leavenworth street.
Hut I do know that an outrage is being
committed , inasmuch as no franchise fias
been obtained by this corporation. I am
not prepared to state as yet what the city
will do in the premises. "
A reporter who made a trip to Loavon-
worth street found that Mr. House's
statement was entirely correct and that
Borne company was making active prep
arations to lay track on that thorougfarc.
hater on it was discovered that the com
pany making this move was the Omaha
Motor railway company. Mr. Mayne ,
one of the directors , was seen by a re
porter , to whom ho said : "Yes , wo pro
pose to go right ahead with laying our
track. We hold that our franchise has
been secured. At any rate wo shall take
it for granted that wo have the franchise.
If any one wants to enjoin us , let him go
ahead. Thu route of the line will bo from
Eighth and Furnntu , along Eighth to
Howard , up Howard to Fifteenth , south
on Fifteenth to Loavomvorth , out Leav

A telegram received in this city an
nouncing that Mr. lcmis ! , formerly
private secretary to George Fran
cis Train , was to bring suit to re
cover for the latter a largo tract of
land in this city , led a UKK reporter yes
terday morning , to search for the former.
Ho was found in the 1'axton.
In reply to questions , he said it had
been his Intention to liot say anything
about the matter until the proper time
should arrive. As it was. Mr. Train
had made the announcement , and no
would now say that the idea of recover

the matter came to the courts , some of

The laii'l in dispute Is described as fol

It is estimated that this property com
prises about six hundred acresand is val
ued at $ 10.000,000. As nearly as Mr. Uemu
V can recall. Train bought this land in
1805 from Herman Kount/c and Samuel
E. Rogers , agreeing' to pav for it between
$75,000 and $100,000. 1'lvo years after
the purchase , or m 1870 , fIi8,000 had been
paid by Mr. Train. About this tituo
Train was in Europe. Ho hail cotton out
the jail at Dublin , and waa. preparing
with uis secretary , Mr. Bemis , for the
wonderful work which they later effected
in Franco. They returned to this coun
try after having advertised Omaha all
over the world , when default , either in
interest or on the note was made , is not
known , lint , certain it is , Messrs.
Rogers and Kountzo seized the land , and
from it have sold a number of valuable
Mr. Train's view of the case may bo
learned from the following extracts from
his conversation pads , written in a talk
with Mr. Bouils , wlucli bad lately taken
"i'roparo the law anil put it in courtif ;
they [ Kountzo and lloncjsj * got their in
terest , how can they havo'tho land , too ?
1 know J own it. Would not a jury give
it'to moY They got their interest. Who
holds the land in equity ? 1 oll'cred the
land to the city for a park ton years ago ,
Do you think they could stand up undei
\isuryof 1 per cent a month ? You can
but admit that they bought it in as mv
agents. Wo wore partners. How niucTi
is it worth ? If they bid , that was a sale ,
The time never was that the ground was
not worth the charges. Don't you see il
was illegal when they bid It in ? Usury
knocks them down. I was declared in
sanebut harmless , This would havomadc
any act ot mine with Kountzo and Rogers
illegal. They have taken property as ol
n sane person. In equity they can onlj
claim bank charges. No process of lav\
can deprive a lunatic of natural rights
Saying now that I am sane does not holj

THE FOLIUM COMMISSION.
A Pointer Ac to How It Will Bo Com
Just one week ago Governor Thayer
who was then la the city , announ
ccd to a reporter for the UKK that hi
wbnld appoint the four members of tin
. police commission immediately after tin
oily election. This ho said ho wouh
do m order that the commissioners migh
outer upon tholr duties at the sumo Unit
'as the now city oillcors.
Next week Clio now municipal regime
Is to bo inaugurated. It Is therefore
probable that Governor Thnyor nil
make his appointments very shortly.
The gentlemen who arc to act on thii
board , Uis said , have already been pickei
out. Very naturally they arc reticent
about the matter as they are undoi
pledge of secrecy to the governor. A re
porter however received a pomtei
to-day from A pretty good sourc <
that the following gontlcmei
have been selected : Chris Hartman
Edward. Huney , W. J. Gilbert , of Gilber
nnd Kennedy , lawyers , and L. M
Mennott. As the mayor , who is to bo tin
man , U republican'this wouli
make the board republican by three to
two. Another rumor , not so well authen
ticated , has it that Mr. Chris Spccht has
been tendered and has accepted a posi
tion on the board.
13y a peculiar mistake the salary of
each commissioner will bo just one-quar
ter of what it ought to bo. and what it
would have been had the original Inten
tion of the framcrs of the charter been
carried out. In drawing up the charter ,
ono word was omitted which made the
salary for the commission ? COO , instead
of making that the amount to bo paid
each commissioner. So that each of the
four men on the board ( exclusive of the
mayor ) will draw ( ho princely sum of
$150 per annum.
Mr. Ed Hanoy , ono of the gentlemen
named In the above article as a probable
police commissioner , stated last evening
that ho had never sought the position
and would not accept it.

A Now LKHleo Hall.
There has been organized in Goodrlcl
lodge , I. O. O. F. a hall association , th
object of which Is to erect a suitabl
structure for lodge purposes and at th
same time afford an opportunity for socin
entertainments in the northern part of th
c'ty. ' The building contemplated is t
be erected on the corner of Saunder
and Hamilton streets. Exteriorly it wil
have- the appearance of a Qvo-story build
ing , though in reality it will bo but o
three stories. The lirst floor will consis
of three stores ; the second will bo used a
a public hall , and the third will be ocou
by lodges. The building will bo erick
rick and finished in the most raodori
style , so that u will bo of the greatos
use as well as an ornament to that scctioi

ODDS AN1) ENOH.
Stray Loaves From lleportorlal Note
The tearing down of these old wooden
tenements to make way for more stately
successors raises quite a dust of reminis
cence. The building now leveled that
once stood on the northeast corner of
Douglas and Fifteenth , was a structure
that had as many good stories connected
with it as it had shingles on its roof.
"You remember , " said ono of. the old
timers yesterday , "that one S. G , Taylor
kept a saloon there once. Ho was a reg
ular 'old sport' and was very active in
politics. A prominent political leader
hero now , who took part in the late
municipal campaign , suddenly thought it
would be a holy and wholesome thought
nnd act to become a 'Good Templar , ' so
he accordingly announced as his motto
'there's nothing so good for the youthful
blood as water , clear , flowing
water.1 This irritated Taylorwith whom
the 'reformed' was a former political
worker. So ho bided lite time. iVhcn.tho
now addition to the ranks of temperance
came up for a prominent I. O. G. T. posi
tion , Taylor presented a bill for drinks
unpaid for to the high lodge authorities.
This knocked the aspirations of the would
be templar on the ncad because it was
clearly shown ho was really too 'fresh-
tap'for piohibition honors.
In the upper story of'that building was
organized tlic llrst colony that developed
the Republican valley in the southern
portion of this state. It was the Frank
lin colony and the organization was
cll'ectcd in the odico of ono Graham a jus
tice of the peace with a north of Ireland
nativity and n very 'booming1
reputation. The members of this
colony established Franklin , now
a thriving town in Furnas county ,
took with thorn , Judge Gaslin , then n
'Jim Crow * lawyer , but since ono of the
most notable judges of the state , and re
moved from Florence a leader of the
democratic party named Pugsloy , who is
to-day a hotel keeper in Franklin , as ho
was in Florence before change of baso.
The party went from hero on wagons ,
and the story of their trip is as full of in
terest as the pioneer adventures of any
body of intelligent men in a now coun
try could bo. Lawyer Van Ettcn , now
of this city , was ono of the party , but it
seems ho preferred metropolitan life and
so returned to his lirst love ,
"I tell you , " said an attendant at the
congratulatory meeting in the southern
part of the city Wednesday night ,
Isaac tiascall hasn't any wings at
all , but ho gets. there just the
same. Now , when ho said , 1 ,
would not only make this city metropoli
tan , but I would make it cosmopolitan , "
do you mean to say ho had no idea of put
ting in a good word for his Cosmopolitan
hall and the valuable surroundings ? "
Two young girls , neither of them , in
all probability , over sixteen years of ago ,
came into police court Thursday after
noon and said they wanted to pay fines
as women of the town. They stated that
they had not yet enter cd unon a fast life ,
but they proposed to do so at once , and
wanted to pay their fines beforehand.
The police judge severely lectured those
youthful specimens of youthful depravity ,
tolling them that they had better reform
before it was too lato. Ho refused to
take the money which they offered in
payuieut gf.tucjr. Hues ,
The brutality of some members of the
police force is simply appalling. An in
stance of this occurred last night at
Fifteenth and Douglas , and was wit
nessed by several hundred people. A
policeman , with the aid of a citizen , was
escorting two prisoners to jail , when ono
of them turned to the ofliccr and com
menced remonstrating with him about
the injustice of the arrest. Ho did not
use any violence , nor did ho attempt to
escape. Nevertheless the policeman
turned on him with his club , beat him
savagely about the head so that the blood
fairly spurted forth Irom the wounds in-
llicted. The act excited the disgust of
every ono who witnessed it , and ono man
remarked : "If that fellow should shoot
that oflicor after his release from iail , I ,
for one , if I were on the jury , could not
convict him. "

A Runaway in Which a Man Receives
On Thursday evening Fritz Pakiser , a
driver for the Fairbanks Lard company ,
mot with a serious accident which will
probably cause his death , as his condition
this afternoon is very criti cal. Ho was
driving a team of young horses on Third
street , near the refinery , when they be
came frightened and suddenly started on
a run. Pakiser was thrown out ana the
wheels of the wagon passed over his
body , causing internal injur
ies which will probably re
sult in death. The unfortunate man was
removed to a neighboring house and Dr.
Darrow was called. Although residing
in the near neighborhood , it was not
deemed advisable to take Pakiser homo ,
as his wife is ill and the shock of the ac
cident to her husband would have bad
effects. The injured man is highly re
spected by his neighbors and employers ,
and the unfavorable reports ofs \ \ condi
tion caused them sincere sorrow.

Some Stories of Cats.
William Tanner , of Eagle Grove , la. ,
was aroused from sleep the other night
jy the loud mewing of his cat , which
lad entered his sleeping room , jumped
on his bed and was clawing the clothing
nt a great rate. Ho dashed the animal
to the lloor and turned over for another
nap , but at the same moment ho noticed
an odor of smoke and going into the hall
discovered a vigorous blaze in a back
closet. Ho doesn't know how the hro
started , but ho feels sure that if it hadn't
been for the cat he would have been cre
mated alive. ' Tbm Is now m high favor
in the household and dines on the best
at the table.
During the mild weather of a couple
of WOCKS ago , a Dubuque man let the
lire in his furnace go out , but lilted the
furnanco with kindling wood and coal ,
so that when the next cold snap came
along ho could start the lire without
trouble. The snap appeared in duo time ,
and ho lighted the lire without opening
the door. A few minutes afterwards an
unearthly howling was hoard at the
register in the sitting-room , and the
household cat was pulled out , looking
like a wreck of her former self ; her hair
singed off , whiskers gone and her body
covered with burns. Tabby's present
quarters are beneath the refrigerator.
Some six months ago Mr. L. C. White ,
of Norfolk , Va. , removed to Stanton. Ho
brought his family by steamer up James
river to Richmond and thence by rail to
Stanton , a total distance ot 276 miles.
His wife brought with her n handsome
Maltese cat , which disappeared shortly
after the arrival of the family in Stanton
and could not bo found , although search
was made for it everywhere. Last week
Mrs. White received a letter from her
sister , who resides in Norfolk , informing
her that the cat had walked into her
house a few days before. Mrs. White is
very anxious to find out how the animal
accomplished the journey.
The cats which are favorites with Chicago
cage girls at present are jet blaok , pure

young lady , whoso father is a well-
known manipulator of pork , keeps an
enormous maltose installed in luxurious
quarters at Oconomonoc , whore the sum

Tabby always shows the greatest pleas-
tire when she sees her mistress in sum
mer , and during the entire season al
ways walks .with her night and morning ,
like a dog.The / cat is unusually intelli
gent , and has been trained to perform
many tricksone , of which is to mount a
piano stool , ibow to the company , and
pat out a tune on the key-board.
Joseph Messenger , an Altoona ( Pa. )
farmer , has a cat which ho always re
garded as a terror to rats and mice , but
now ho thinks differently. Ono day ,
some time ago , while out in the barn he
saw a big rat ! jump out from a barrel ,
and on looking in beheld a colony of
young rats snugly installed'there. As
the quickest aneans of getting rid of the
pests the farmer brought out his famous
mouser , but to his grout astonishment the
animal took the rats under her wing and
began to treat them as if they were her
own offspring. After bringing in some of
his friends to witness the curious spec

An engineer on the Wabash railway'
whose run is between Danville and
Springfield , has a cat which he would not
part with for love or money. It belonged
to his wife , who is now dead , and for a
year past it has been his constant com
panion in the cab. The cat loves its life
on the rail and has grown sleek and fat
sniflling the prairie winds. Ordinarily
it sits perched up at the cab window
before its master , but occasionally
it strolls out to the pilot , where
it will ride for miles at a stretch , wink
ing knowingly at the dogs which bark at
the train as it thunders by the cross
roads. Sometimes when the train is approaching
preaching a station the adventuresome
animal climbs to the top of the sand-box
and calmly roosts there , undeterred by
the shriek of the whistle or the clang of
the bell. The engine has had good luck
ever since the animal became an occu
pant of the cab , and the trainmen look
on it as a mascot against disaster.
