the best of all the now ones , and a goodly
number of the lots have already been
contracted for. It lies west of the trans
fer , and with Use overllow from Omaha ,
together with local improvements' , cannot
but rise in value rapidly.

put it there. " The city has no system
for cleaning up , and no regular place
for deposit.

who fell asleep while there was any

Ho lined him 50 cents extra for denying

A new enterprise has been started in

cake factory at No. 150 Broadway. The

When the Grand Army gave n campfire -
fire hero for the beuolit of thn Cottage
hospital , the citizens contributed of pro
visions so liberally that there was quite a
quantity loft over. Although the enter
tainment was for the benefit of the hos
pital , still some of the veterans who were
on tlio committee concluded that it would
bo a just and generous thing 'to turn a
part of the uuusod provisions over to the
homo of the friendless. To this there
wassomo opposition , as the avowed ob-
Icet of the entertainment was only the
lospital , and those who gave did so with
that understanding. Still the veterans
insisted on thus practically remembering
the homeless children. The manager of
the homo now publicly thanks the ladies
of the hospital for the donation and gives
them the credit of the entertainment. Ig
noring the-valiant veterans Tind their
generosity in tbo matter.

The Manntvn Contract hot.
J. K. Graves , of Dubtiquu , arrived hero
yesterday to close the prulimitinry ar
rangements in regard to the building of
the motor line to Luke Mutiawa. Tlioso
interested mot yesterday afternoon , and
the details were arranged satisfactorily
and the contract drawn up and signed.
Tills makes the enterprise secure , beyond
any shadow of doubt. Mr. Graves , as all
know , is a man who means business , and
ins agreement to build the line s'ettles nil
questions. Mr. Graves says ho will order
material to-ilay and that it will bo hero
bv Friday of next week. Ho expects to
start work at once , and to have the road
running within thirty days , although the
contract trivcs hint until the lirst of July.
The line agreed to is from the dummy
depot on Hroadway south on Ninth street
to the city limits , than west to Eleventh
street and south to Hay's landing , then
east to Marks' landing. There are to bo
two IJ.ildwin noiseless motors. Tlio de
tails all having been put in black and
white , and the contract signed , work
will commence as soon as possible , and
those who have watched Mr. Graves in
his work elsewhere know that the
chances are great that ho will rush
through the work long before the date
lixcd in the contract.
General lo < lic at Homo.
General G. M. Dodge , ono of the di
rectors of the Union Pacilic railway ,
arrived hero yesterday , and was greeted
heartily by his old friends and fellow-
townsmen. Ho is looking as vigorous
as though passing time and the weight
of business were touching him but
lightly. General Uodgois known among *
reporters as ono of the easiest men to
interview and one of the hardest to got
anything out of. Ho is approachable ,
greets an eager questioner so cordially
and chats so freely that tlip novitiate
'has his hopes raised high and sees n col
umn or more of interesting reading mat
ter growing out of the golden opportu
nity. The veteran reporters who have
had the pleasure of meeting him before ,
know bettor what to expect. General
Dodge talks , talks freely , but when any
subject is opened up that means busi
ness he can talk around it more skilfully
than any of the promincnts. Tlio eagnr
interviewer is aggravated by the "thou
art so near and yet so fat" situation that
he has to retire in despair , and as ho
takes his leave from the genial general
the latter remarks : "Now , don't you re
port anything as coming from mo. " In
nine times out of ton the reporter could
not if he would.
General Dodge did impart the informa
tion , however , that ho was on route for
Denver. He stopped on" hero to SPO his
old homo , and expected to meet Presi
dent Adams in Omaha. He would also
stop hero on his rctuin from Denver. It
was simply a private business trip.
It is understood that his real purposes
in making the trip are concerning the
Union Pacific. As to thu details of the
matters to be looked after , ono conjecture
is about as reasonable : H another. It is
understood that among the minor matters -
tors to be considered is tlio Tenth avenue
project. The company has not taken any
action as yet , mid the delay has boon
caused by the change in the ollfccrs. Mr.
Potter will have numerous matters to
consider , and this will bo among those to
which his attention will bo called early.
It will take him a little time to become
conversant with the situation , so that a
little delay is unavoidable. There scorns
to bo no doubt but that the Union Pacific
will accept the ordinance , ami build its
freight depot as asked.
General Dodco was asked about the
union depot. On this ho talked a little
plainer : "You folks take hold of things
the wrong way' You try to make the
tail shake the dog , instead of the dog
shaking the tail. The Iowa roads are
more interested hero than the Union Pa
cilic , and they should bo the ones yon
ought to move on for securing a union
depot. If they want a union depot , and
if they go in to build ono , the Union Pa
cilic will rnn into it , of course. That is
my belief. "
"What would be done with the transfer
then ? "
"You needn't worry about the transfer.
Wo have uses enough for that. Those
who think that the transfer buildings
stand in the way of the Union Pacilic
running into a union depot , if one is
built , are mistaken. "
On being asked about what the Union
Pacific company was going to do on this
side of the river , General Dodge replied
that the last time ho talked with Presi
dent Adams about it Mr. Adams said he
was going ahead with the plans already
outlined some time ago.
"It is all right then to report progress ? "
"I don't care what you report , but you
mustn't report mo as saying anything. "
They Iiauehotl First.
Yesterday Justice Burnett delivered a
written opinion in the cases of the three
young men , William Hummel , Thomas
Murphy and William Brown , charged
with disturbing the religious services of
the Salvation army. Ho doubted whether
the Salvationists had any right to forbid
any in the congregation leaving the hall ,
except when singing , and doubted
whether they had the right to lock the
congregation in. If there was any ne
cessity for any ono to leave ho ought to
bo allowed to do so and had the right to
leave. In such R case , however , a per
son should approach the door as quietly
us possible. In tills ease it seems that
the whole gang started for the door with
such a rush , and talked so loud , and
burst open the door so violently as to
disturb the entire congregation. The
evidence showed that there was a regu
lar gang who went there for fun and who
had boon disturbing previous meetings.
The defendants admitted belonging to
this gang and it was evident that they
disturbed this meeting wilfully. In view
of the fact that the Salvation army was
rather noisy in its meetings , and it was
so peculiar an organization as to perhaps
Justify persons in being less solemn than
n other places ho made the line light
$10 each and costs.
Dennis Harmer , who had pleaded
guilty , was let off with a line of half that
amount. . _

The evangelist , Ed Forrest , who lately
held a sarics of revival meetings here , is
now on the Pucitio coast. Ho is evidently
still indulging in his slang , and his talk
about "sealskin Christians. " Tic | Sun
Francisco Post says of him : "Ho brings
to the aid of the gospel the vocabulary
of the street blackguard and the hanger-
on of gambling-houses. Christ , ho tolls
his audience , has 'dealt him a full hand , '
and ho assures them that it Is a 'winner
every time. ' Episcopalians displease him
in the manner in which they 'do the
prayer act. ' Regular clergymen who
preach their sermons in the orthodox
manner are 'lluo-haired ducks. ' As for
ilmself , it Is hii ambition to give divine
, ruth to sinners 'right in the neck , ' It
s apparent that Forrest cares more for
notoriety than for the welfare of San
Francisco sinners. "

The Club Organized.
Another meeting of those interested in
the formation of a business men's club
was held last evening at Mueller's music
house. There was a goot'ly ' number
present. The committee on constitution
and by-laws presented a written report ,
which after some' amendment was
udopted. The name of "The Council
Ulull's Club" was adopted.
The committee on securing a location
reported in favor of taking rooms over
Uudlo & Yeiinwinc's , and it was docldcil
to take that place , and proceed to lit the
rooms up at once.
The following wore elected as ofllcers :

A Stray Opera Glass.
Some time ago some of Jim Wilson's
Family went in a hack from the opera
liouse , and somewhere on the way lost a
valuable opera glass. Wilson offered a
reward of ? 10 for its return , but could
liear nothing.about it. A few nights ago
Olllcer Beswick was standing at the
dummy depot , and overheard some
liaokmcn talking about the number of
articles found in hacks , and swapping
experiences. Ono driver told about
limling an opera glass last winter. The
pllicer overhearing this , and remember
ing that Wilson had lost one , tackled the
Fellow , and learned from him that ho
had pawned the class in Omaha for $3.
On finding that Wilson would still pay
$10 for its return ho went over to Omaha ,
redeemed the glass , and claimed the re
