Pinching a Detective.
There was an interesting case on trial
in the district court ycssorday. It was
that of young Vannico , charged with ob
taining money under false pretenses. It
was claimed on the part of the prosecu
tion that the young man was employed
last fall in the Noligh detective agency in
Omaha. His business was that of an of
fice boy , and ho was given some little
work to do to give him a chance to learn
something of what it was to bo a detect
ive. Ho was in the oflice several weeks ,
and had been used on a few occasions on
some trivial work outside the oflice. Mr.
Harris , who is the manager for the Ilus-
sell manufacturing * company in Council
Blnfl's , was suspicion that ono of his
traveling men was too fond of poker
on the road , and ho thought it
would bo well to satisfy him
self on this point before discharging
the traveling man. To secure the needed
evidence , ho bethought him that it would
bo well to employ a detective. Ho ac
cordingly applied at Neligh's office , in
Omaha , ana found young Vannico in the
ollico. Vannico told him that Mr. No-
ligh was out of the city , and learning
what he wanted , told Mr. Harris that he
was himself an experienced detective ,
and could do the work for him. While
talking with Mr. Harris Mr. Noligh en
tered the olllco , but Mr. Harris did not
recognize him , never having mot him.
Ho asked Vannico , however , if that was
not Mr. Neligh. Vannico replied. "No ,
that's a friend of mine. " Mr. Harris ,
bing satisfied that Vannice was ono of the
detectives interested in the agency , made
an appointment to meet him in Council
Bluffs the next day and arrange details.
At this meeting in Council Binds Mr.
Harris furnished him with $50 to cover
traveling expenses , and agreed to pay
him $25 for his services in ascertaining
whether the traveling man. named
Young , was playing poker on the road.
Vannice went out on the road , but learned
little about it , and a second trip was
made , for which $00 moro was put up by
Mr. Harris. Ho also paid Vannice f 3 on
account of services. In rendering Ins ex
pense account , Vannico accounted for
spending so much money by claiming
that he had to play poker himself , in
order to keep in with the boys. and got
pointers on Young. Ho managed to lose
the money thus placed on the cards , and
failed to secure any information about
YounK. In fact , the work was bungling.
and Mr. Harris realizing that ho had
been duped , had Vannico indicted. ;
On the other hand Vannico claimed
that ho undertook the job in good earnest.
and intending to act squarely. Ho claimed
that the prosecution was malicious , be
cause ho had left Neligh's employ , and
Neligh was anxious to get oven with him
for not turning over the money which ho
had in his pocket for the traveling ex
penses. He insisted on the stand that ho
had not misrepresented his ability to Mr.
Hams , and that ho did not obtain the
money by any false pretenses at all.
Attorney Stow , of Omaha , is prose
cuting the case , and Stone & Sims de
fending. The examination of witnesses
throw a good deal of light upon the In
teresting workings of so-called detectives.
It afforded much amusement to the
listeners , especially when ono witness ,
who claimed to bo a detective , was pinned
down to defining what a detective was.
Ttio best definition ho could give was that
ho was doing what ho was told to do.
When pressed for a statement of any of
the principles which governed the pro
fession , the only one no could think of
was that a detective should treat people
Trouble With Taxes.
There wore a goodly number of tax
payers who called at the city building
yesterday to look over the raises made
by the board of equilization. The total
assessment has been raised from between
four and five millions to between live and
six millions of dollars. There are nu
merous opinions expressed. Nearly
every ono whoso property has been
raised thinks ho is a little hijrner than uhy
neighboring property of about the same
Talue , . nd altogether out of proportion
to other property. It seems eoucoded
that the raised assessments even are not
In excess of forty per cent of the cash
value of the property , and the chief pro
tests will bo on the ground Hint there
have been discriminations.
It is stoutly asserted by some that the
board has no right to raise the assess
ments. It is a board of equalization , and
not ono of assessments. If the board Is
to do the assessing , then there is little use
of electing mi assessor. If the board in
creases one assessment it sLould reduce
some other one , thus making the total the
same as originally. Such Is the view
taken of the matter by many. The
mayor and other olllcials are equally con
fident that the board lias been exercising
simply the rights and powers given under
It was amusing yesterday to sec two
men. Ono was wrathy about the increased -
creased assessment of his property , and
bitterly denounced it a.s a scheme of the
bridge company to reali/.o moro money
out of the twelve-mill tax voted for by
that enterprise. Ho had only got through
airing his convictions when one of the
bridge company came in , equally in-
cen ud at the raise of his property. Ho
was hot about the action of the board ,
and thought it was a scheme to help the
city expenses along , when these should
be met by some other way. There was a
stream coining and going all day , and
few of them smiled. There'will evi
dently bo some hot boxes before the
assessment runs through to the end of

More Injunctions Wanted.
The notices for another batch of saloon
injunction cases have been prepared , and
the sheriff will proceed to servo them.
This batch includes all the saloons omitted
in the former proceedings , so that the
next batch of injunctions , if these are is
sued , will include all of those not pre
viously enjoined. The injunctions will
not issue without another light in the
courts , but it will probably not be as pro

the points in controversy have already
been passed upon by the lower courts.

The Lnntry Kiss.
Now York Sun : There is nothing more
talked about in theatrical circles than the
kissing of Charles Coghlan and Mrs.
Lantry in "Lady Clancarty. " It was so
deliberate , so utterly oblivious of the big
fiddle , so unconscious of the bass drum.
The seemingly rapturous kissinc that
Lrnma Abbott used to bestow on Castle
never stirred a hair on Husband Weth-
erell's head. The kissing of Mary An
derson was the most transparent make-
believe in the world. When Clara Mor
ris used to kiss Charlie Theme in "Ca-
mllle , " she would take him on his knees
before her , muss his hair , devour him
with loving looks , dip down upon his
face , and kiss him llugonngly on his
nose , to his intense amusement. When
Iticnold was m the country ho awoke the
town kissing Sirsan when he played
William. The women in the audience
used to admire , but Susan suffered , Rig-
uold was a wiry , red-bearded man , who
shaved twice a week and no oftenor. Ho
would powder the stubble on his face
till his complexion was lovely , but poor
Susan I A section of sandpaper could
have hurt no worse. When he got home
from sea in the play and mot Susan , she
would lly into Ins arms very much as the
victim sentenced in the inquisition to
undergo the virgin's kiss knowing she
had to , and was going to got hurt. Ho
would hold that poor girFs head back ,
make a rush , kiss both oycs.root a second
under her ear , and then kiss her straighten
on the mouth , and all the while the ad
jacent field of cheek and mound of chin
were taking out her cuticle like a nut
But this kiss of Coghlan's is realistic.
The remarks it elicits ara funny. The
other night , as the lingering kiss was
pressed upon the upturned mouth of the
famous Lily , a lady said with a sigh ,
"What a pity it's In a play. " An old
fellow , who looked through a pair of
glasses and over u lot of chin whiskers ,
just us Horace Grcoloy used to do , slap
ped his leg with a big freckled hand ,
and ejaculated , "Whew ! " Everybody
laughed almost us much ns they did
another night , when a small boy , half
over the gallery rail , cried just as Cogh
lan's lips mot Langtry's , "Let her go ,
Gallagher ! "
