Discouraging Divorce Suits.
WASIIINOTON , May 18. ( Special telc-
Crain to the Bur . ] Quito a commotion hns
boon caused by the expressed determination
ot the Pastor's alliance of the Uhtrict of Co
lumbia , to refuse to marry divorced persons ,
except where divorce was obtained on ac
count of adultery as outlined In a UF.K
special lastnlpht. All principal ministers In
Washington belong to the Pastor's alliance
and enthusiastically endorse the resolution
adopted.
For many years churchmen have been
working to make moro Htrlngent laws ot
marriage and divorce and also to cet con
gress to enact a general law that will bo the
name In all the states. The formal pas sage
of this resolution to secure the co-operation
of a great number ot pastors of dilferent
churches la one stop toward the accomplish
ment of the reform.
Dr. Ulesya wall known minister hero
nays he thinks that If , when a minister re
fuses to marry persona , for reasons that one
of them hns a husband or a wife living , ho
can toll them that other pastors In the city
will not perform the ceremony either. It
will make people think twice before entering
loosely Into marriage and divorce. Ho thinks
that If people were made to understand that
If they were dlvmceil , for any but one se
rious cause , they could not bo married
gain to any ono else , they would
try mid make up their quarrels and try and
eo If they con id not bee In over again and
live hnppily together. While this resolution
Is not oDlliratorv ho expects good moral re
sults from It. The alarming number or di
vorces that are granted each year , Dr. ( lelsy
says , make It necessary that there should bo
something done to correct the evil.
Hov. John I' . Newman , best known minis
ter In NVnshlngton.sald to-day : "I think the
primitive causes that develop the resolution
adopted , crow out of a certain party who ap
peared before ono of our city pastors and de
sired to bo remarried. At all events the case
covered the question of divorce for Justifi
able reasons. I recognize the justifiable
right of separation for other causes than
ndultcry , but 1 do not recognize the right of
remarriage except In cases of divorce for that
one cause. "

Now Point * of tlio Intcr-Stnto Imw.
WASHINGTON , May IS. Chairman Cooley ,
ot the Interstate commerce commission , In a
letter to J , A. Aanley , traffic manager of the
Minnesota & Northwestern railway , who had
askea suspension of the long and short haul
elanso. In application to certain points on
bis line , presents now and Important points
as to the duties and powers of the commis
sion under the law , as follows : "It Is obvious
that cases the law contemplates , In which tin
commission Is authorized to make orders for
suspension are exceptional cases. It does not
state the grounds that shall warrant such ru-
lief , but U plainly Intends these grounds In
very case shall be special , particularly thai
where only general reasons operate , tlu
general law shall to loft to Its ordinary course- ,
however serious may bo the consequence :
In particular cases and to particular road !
and Interests. It is also made plain by the
ct that any order for suspension was In
tended to be based upon Investigation , whlcl
should satisfy the commission that the cas <
was In fact exceptional ; fairly within the In
tent the provision U made for relief. Tlu
lurlidlcUou of the commission to make or
lers Is evidently meant to be somewhat
closely restricted , It rouit bo assumed that
congress intended the general law , in Its
mam features at least , to boa permanent law
lor the country. It must , therefore , have
contemplated considerable sacrifices would
have to be submitted to by some parties and
some Interests \\hlle the general law was
being established , For very obvi
ous reasons It would bo quite
Impossible to Introduce considerable
changes In this branch of the law which concerns -
corns so Intimately the commerce country ,
without serious consequences to some pri
vate Interests. If the law , In Its general
operation , were to prove generally and
equally mischievous In all directions , the
commission , Instead of having greater power
for that reason would , on the other hand ,
have no power of suspension whatever , for
the simple and plain reason that there would
then be no exceptional cases for It to act
upontherefore no cases referred by act to Its
judgment. The commission must consider in
ach case what effect giving relief to one ap
plicant will have upon other Interests
and your knowledge of railroad matters
must enable you to perceive that In some sec
tions of the country granting OHO application
may no effect the Interests of other roads as
to create the ncceselty for a like relief to
several more. The satisfaction ot one claim
beguts others equally meritorious , until. If
olfaro satisfied , exception becomes the rule.
But when such result Is probable , reasons for
declining to make any temporary order very
conclusive , the commission cannot consent
deliberately to enter upon the highway where ,
to all appearance , there be no haulm ;
place within the limits of Us lawful
jurisdiction. If a general suspension of the
* 'Iong and short haul clause" of the statute Is
not to be made by single comprehensive
order , neither should the same result bo
reached or approached by grantlne successive
orders In Individual coses , In those views
the whole commission concurs.
Very respectfully yours ,
T. M. COOLEV , Chairman.

ANOTHER RUMORED CHANGE

Another Union Pnclflc Change.
It la currently reported In railroad cir
cles that the scries of changes which have
boon nud nro being made among the
Union Pacific officials will include the
head of the freight auditing douartmont.
A railway official , in a position to know
whereof ho speaks , states that it has al
ready gone out that Mr. Potter has de
cided to reorganize the freight auditing
department and that the first stop toward
the innovation will bo the retirement of
the present auditor , David Davis. The
Be of the proposed change , it Is as-
ortcd , is Mr. Potter's objections to the
lystom under which the affairs of Mr.
Javls' department are managed. When
ho present auditor came hero 'two years
go ho brought with him the sya-
om now in mo in the Union Pacific
rolpht dopartmontwhlch ho had used on
ho Grand Trunk railway , by which ho
was employed before ho came to Omaha.
The system , It is asserted , is u very com-
nlox one , and in Its operation requires a
'arger number of clerks and sub officers
han the system which was in vogue In
ho Union Pacific department prior to
ils connection with the department.
The system under which the affairs of
this department wore managed by Mr.
Davis' predecessor , Mr. J. G. Tavlor ,
was n very simple and satisfactory 'one ,
and similar to that which was in use by
the Burlington system under Mr. Potter's
management , it is stated that Mr.Potter
"las made an examination of the afl'uirs
n the freight auditing department , and
lias decided to reinstate the old system.
By this , It is claimed , ho can carry
out his policy of reducing tlio working
forces in the various departments to the
number actually required to perform the
ork. It is stated that by the Introduc
tion of the freight auditing system used
by the Burlington , and formerly used by
the Union Pacific , the force in the freight
auditing department can bo reduced by
at least fifty men. This is in the line of
Mr. Potter's policy , as shown by his re
duction of the superfluous forces in the
general suporindendent's department.
With the abandonment of the system
which has been tound unsatisfactory , the
removal of the father of the sy-stera Is n
practically necessary accompaniment.
With the reinstatement of the old system
't is also rumored that the freight and-
.tor , J. G. Taylor will bo called to his
old position. This rumor gains credence
rorn the fact that Mr. Taylor , who is
now connected with some Minnesota
road , is in the city , and has been in closu
connection several times with Mr. Potter.
1 ho change is promised to take effect
about the first of Juno.
WOU1C OP 1NCENUIAIUE9.
General Crook's Itosldenco Fired
Durlnc a Social Ilccaptlon.
A brilliant reception that was in
progress at General Crook's residence , at
ho corner of Seventeenth and Davenport
jtreots last night , was rudely broken up
ihortly bcforo midnight by a lire which
was discovered in the attic of the bulki
ng. The first intimation that the merry
makers had of the fire was the bursting
of a volume of smoke from the upper
portion of the residence. A hasty ex
amination revealed a blaze in progress
n the attic. A bucket brigade , com
posed of gentlemen in full evening dress ,
was formed , but soon found that the
llames were getting beyond their con
trol and an alarm of lire was sent in.
The department responded promptly
and soon had the flames ex
tinguished. The damage was principally
in the ofl'ect .of the smoke and water on
the furnishings of the residence and can
not be accurately estimated. It will
probably reach $1000. The origin of the
lire is a matter ot mystorv. There was
no fire used in any part of the building ,
except the kitchen , after 0 o'clock. A
theory that the fire was the work of an
incendiary and was n part of a plan for
the robbery , by pickpockots.of the house
and the guests , is generally believed. A
few minutes before the lire was discov
ered a big burly tramp was found in the
hallway trying to slip from the building.
Ho refused to give an account of himself
and resisted attempts made to detain
him. He was arrested by Oflicer John
Brady ana jailed. Ho gave his name as
John Kiloy but refused to explain his
presence in the house. The fire caused
a breaking up of the party , which was ,
until the lire , a most enjoyable affair , as
the receptions of General and Mrs. Crook
always are.

THE TKOO * p'IN [ WXOMINQ.
A Cltlznii of Tlint , Territory Expresses
Ills Mind Concerning It.
In a talk with a Wyoming man yester
day a reporter learned that the senti
ment of the people in the territory is that
the president dooprt-t know anything
about Wyoming. While it is true that a
good many acres of land are fenced illig-
ally , and while the owners of the fences
have not , in instances , complied with the
president's proclamation , there is no dis
position to dispute or impede the de
struction of such fences by the author
ized government agents and suoh a thing
as military force is neither needed nor
excusable. The Wyomingiccs fcol that
the special assignment of a company of
cavalry to Cheyenne to accompany gov
ernment agents on the fence cutting
raids of the latter , which are evidently
contemplated , is an insult to their patri
otism and far more likely to provoke than
to repress opposition. "I should not bo
surprised , " continued the speaker"if the
troop of cavalrv will bo worried consid
erably. In the first place , the cowman
of the plains has as little rospcct for the
regular army ns the average Indian has.
The cavalry are not adapted to the work
of riding over the long stretches between
water in some parts of the territory.
They are equipped witli horses that have
no adaptability to that kind of service.
The broncho Is the only cquino beast
which can bo used to advantage there.
Ho is little and of unly disposition , but
ho can live longer on a mouthful of bunch
grass and go farther and lay down and
roll in the ecstacy of good spirits at the
end of a fifty miles run than three Oregon
gen or American horses. The broncho
will not bo used in cavalry service because -
cause ho don't look well on dress parade ,
But ho has the faculty of living on air ,
which the American horse hasn't.
"When I say that the troopers will bo
worried , I don't mean that any of thorn
will be shot at. But they will bo both
ered in ways that the cowboy knows how
to use , which will be indirect , but not
the less oflcctual.
"Tho cowboy hlmsolf doesn't care
how many fences are cut. Ho is rather
glad of it. But there are largo outfits
which have great tracts fenced , and , of
course , the cowboy works under orders
the same as anybody. I don't think the
troops will do any moro than the govern

once started in , and it gives Wyoming a
bad reputation to have it telegraphed

AMUSEMENTS.
MliS Maddern and Her Company In
Hobcccn , At lloytl'8.
Last evening Miss Minnie Maddcrn an-
) eiircd at Boyd's. opera house , in "Mis ?
ilobecca ; or a Matter of Business , " The
> icci ) Is n translation from the German ,
by Louis Koch , loading man of the Cor- !
nan Theater company , of this city.
The play Is not adapted to Miss Mad-
lorn , Neither U Miss Muddorn adapted
o It. She has very little to do , and that
Ittle might be done as well as it needs
10 done liy an actress who does not essay
loading roles. The piece lacks the refine-
nont which has clmracterl/.ed Miss
Maddorn's latest plnvs those in
v/hieh she has afforded our poo-
Die the greatest entertainment.
It can scarcely bo understood why Miss
Maddorn should attempt a piece , avow
edly of the alleged "farcical-comedy"
order , with but few effective situations ,
and with no more ennobling or inspiring
motive than to create merriment over the
suspicion on the part of n wife of the do-
votton of her husband. In attaining this
climax a great deal has to bo said and
n great deal to bo done in which the audi
ence find little to interest thorn.
The actors struggled , but without sue-
jess. None of them seemed to appreci
ate their parts and nonoof them hail per
fectly memorized their lines. Their act
ing as a consequence was little moro than
a poor rehearsal.
For a voice and limb company there is
foundation in Mr. Kach's translation for
a successful piece , but some attention
must bo paid to the contlnuty of the plot
.xnd the retouching of the characters.
MANAnr.u Horn's IIKNKFIT.
The benefit to Manager Boyd , of the
) pcra house , will take place to-night.
Nliiinio Maddorn and company will present -
sent "Caprice. " The popularity of Mana
ger Boyd and the charming little actress
who appears on the occasion of his bone-
Tit , should bo sulHoicnt to pack the Boyd
From parquet to gallery. If the goni.il
manager's friends turn out en masse the
linanelal success of the performance is
as certain as is the fact that artistically it
will bo all that could bo asked.
Birthday Present.
Last evening Colonnl A. H. Forbes was
presented with a costly gold headed cano
i > y Mr. II. M. Rothory. The event oo-
Mirrcd nt the lattcr's place of business on
