The dlG'oronccs that have existc'd be
tween a majority of the couucil and the
board of commissioners of fire and police
worn amicably settled yesterday after
noon by the retirement of Captain W. S.
Scavoy from his position as chief of the
Omaha police force. The commissioners
i wcro in session for several hours yester
day ilffernoon considering the resigna
tion of Chief of Police Seavey. This
resignation was received on Wednesday
an. , was as follows :
OMAHA , N > b. , June 15,1887 To the Hoard
of Flro nnd Pollcu Commissioners : I liavo
the honor to resign my position as chief ot
Dinnlm. 1 nin , gentlemen , very respectfully ,
your obedient tenant ,
\V. S. SKA.VKY ,
Chlet of 1'ollce.
The commissioners had refused to take
action upon the resignation until yester
day afternoon , when Captain Seavoy
went before the board and requested that
his resignation bo accepted. After hear
ing his rcafons for tlio request , the com
missioners accepted the resignation with
regret , us expressed in tlio following res
Whereas. W. S. Sn.ivey 1ms tenUeJcd his
unqiialllicd resignation of the ollice of chief
ot police , nnd asked this board to accept the
same without dnlnv , nnd
Whereas , This has been n surprise to the
board and wholly unasked aud unlocked for ,
Whereas , All tlio duties of the office have
been faithfully , effectually and satisfactorily
performed by Mini , bo It
Kesolved. That the board nccept the resig
nation ot Chief hcavey with deep regret , and
take tlio occasion to express Ita continued
high regard for him ns an officer nnd cltl/en ,
and thank him for his earnest y.eal in ollice.
The commissioners then selected John
McDonald , the senior captain of the
force , to succeed Chief Seavey. The
news of the commissioners' action spread
rapidly , and the police headquarters was
Boon the center of attraction for inter
ested parties who were anxious to inquire
into the truth of the reported change of
chiefs. The councilmcn met at the usual
hour for the regular weekly committee
meeting , but the oppressive heat in the
council chamber and the desire to cele
brate what was styled ns the victory of
the solid twelve over the police commis
sioners prevailed over the Inclination to
attend to business , nnd the wise moh ad
journed. Councilmcn Lee nnd Ford took
charge of the committee of the whole
and started out to make n night of it.
Chief of Police Seavey was on duty
last night us usual. Ho will turn over
his badge of authority to his successor
on Monday. Ho was seen by a BEE re
porter last night and in response to a re
quest for his reasons for resigning his
position , replied :
"Wholly in the interests of the police
department , the police commissioners
and the city of Omaha. "
"Will you please bo more specific ? "
"It was simply this way. 1 rom the ac
tion of the council on Tuesday night _
saw that a majority of the members of
the members would throw overo obstacle
in the way of the commissioners nnd my
self in the management of the police de
partment. This year promises to bo ono
of the moft successful in the history ol
Omaha. There is at least a million del
lars here waiting Investment , but not a
; i cent will bo invested until wo have
a good , stable ' nity govern
ment , and this could not bo
secured without harmonious action b
the commissioners and the council. 1
seemed that the council had determined
to take a stand which would block every
thing in the way of perfecting a police
organization , i intend to remain a cit
izen of Omaha and I never want any
man to say that I stood in the way of
good government. The salary , position
and honor are not equivalent to the city's
prosperity that would bo injured by my
remaining at the head of the police
department. The police commissioners
have stood by mo and would have con
tinued to do so , nnd 1 cannot speak too
highly of their treatment of mo. I am
going to remain in Omaha and you will
hear more of me. "
The appointment of John McDonaU
ns chief of police was very favorably ro
coivcd , especially by the present mem
hers of the force.
Frightful Death of an Unknown Man
On Tenth Street.
Last night about 10:45 : o'clock an tin
kfown man was rua over , badl ;
mangled and almost instantly killed a
the crossing on Tenth and Chicago
streets , by a freight train on the Chicago
St. Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha railroad
A largo crowd gathered around and triei
to got a look at the unfortunate man as
he lay between the wheels. The strce
was crowded with bareheaded women
and men eagerly struggling for n front
place in the peering crowd , which was
aided by a few lanterns in obtaining in
distinct glimpses of the dead man.
The police tried to Keep thu crowd
back until the coroner came , when ho at
once proceeded to nubpoona a jury and
witnesses. ( Jeorge North , the foreman of
the train , Max North , brakeman , and
James Diman , a timid witness
who lived in the vicinity
were sworn as witnesses. Diman swore
ho was laying on the porch of Mike
Douglas * boarding house , when ho hoard
thu shout and running down signalled
the slowly moving train , which stopped.
The train men came forward and de
ceased was found under the car dead.
Did not know him. The train men
know no/thing except that they were
signalled , stopped and found the corpse
aa ho then lay.
The holding of the inquest was quite
ghastly. Lanterns were hold over the
little group ol seven , the jury and coroner
ner , while the police kept back the surg
ing crowd and the object of the commo
tion and legal form lay dismembered 1
aud bloody under the sombre bottom of f
the car a few fcot distant. Women , chil
dren nnd men wcro eager to glean the
facts. All the oral evidence being in , the
dead nmn was grabbed by the
Icga and pulled out between the
rails for identification. His Ings were
broken and limp ; a bloody hole was
through the right side of his neck : the
right side of his lip .was nearly cut oft * ;
his features were distorted ; the left boot
was torn ounn and the muscles and flesh
sadly mutilated. Ho has cropped brown
hair , brown tnnstacl.o. nnd a vigorous
frame. Alderman Ford thought ho know
him ; many others thought they did ;
none could glvo his name , though all
were allowed To pass by and examine the
features closely. The man was attired
la striped shirt and punts ; had red sus
penders , but no coat. A white sombrero
With red leather band was found by him I ,
and iu hia pocket was found (17.55 iu

An Important Meeting Jjftst Night
The Dills Allowed.
The board of public works met last
evening , Messrs. Balcombo and Hclmrod
being present. City EnglnccrTillson was
also at the meeting , and n few bills ap
proved by him were allowed.
The bill of Murphy , Creighton & Com
pany , for curbing under the Eleventh
street viaduct , was allowed , at sixty cents
per foot , being a deduction of twcnty-livo
cents on the original price.
Chairman A. D. Balcombo stated that
City Attorney Webster had loft a written
opinion on the Davenport street paving
question. Mr. Webster had gone to Den
ver last evening Saturday and would
bo absent several days. According to
the statement of Mr. Balcombe , Mr.
Webster had asked that the Asphalt Pav
ing company cease work on Davenport
street between Fourteenth and Sixteenth
streets , temporarily. The council , by
ordinance passed in September , 18SO , gave
the Asphalt company the right to pave
from the west side of Fourteenth .street
to the west side of Sixteenth street. Six
teenth street at the time at this point was
paved. In February last the council
passed a resolution requesting the board
of public works to let the contract to the
Asphalt company for the pavement of
Davenport street as above indicated.
The property owners on the two blocks
had made known their preference for a
block pavement , claiming they consti
tuted a now district under the ordinance
of February , 1837. Tha council did not
concede this claim of the property own
ers and accordingly ordered the contract
let. The city attorney now expresses his
opinion that the property owners arc
right and that the block pavement must
Tha question puzzles the council , as. If
the Asphalt company is permitted to
finish the pavement , the collection
of the special tax on the contiguous prop
erty owners will bo by them resisted. If
tiie Asphalt company is not allowed to
proceed , a suit for damages for breach of
contract is threatened by that company.
The matter was deferred until Monday
evening , June 21 , at 7:30 : o'clock.
The following bills wcro allowed :
To Murphy , Creighton & Co. , paving
between Jackson and Jones streets on
Eleventh street. Balance duo $300.84.

THE TAL.lt A110UT TDTTLE.
An Omaha Mnn Who Fought With
the Iowa General.
" 1 belonged to General Tuttln's regi
ment , the Second Iowa infantry , during
the war , and am well acquainted with the
man who is just now receiving so much
attention from the press , " remarked an
Omaha man yesterday , "A more quiet ,
unassuming individual tlian Tutilo 1
never saw. At Donclson ho led his regi
ment iu an assault upon the rillo pits ,
capturing thorn at the point of the bayo
net , though suffering a loss in live min
utes of nearly 800 killed and wounded
out of COO men. At Shiloh ho commanded
n brigade in the division of W. 11. L.
Wallace , whoso stubborn fighting in thu
union centre caused the confederates to
christen that point in the line 'The
Hornet's Nest , ' and Tuttlo'a coolness
and courage in holding the position when
the command fell to him by the death of
Wallace early in the afternoon , had
much to do with the final result of that
battle , for a break in our lines half an
hour earlier in the day would have been
of vital importance to the enemy.
Knowing his modesty , I was interested
in looking up his reports of these engage
ments as printed in the union and con
federate records , and can safely refer to
them as unequalled in all those ponder
ous books for brevity and
conciseness. They arc in marked con
trast to the reports of General Low Wal
lace of the siimo battles where his ser
vices were of but little value and his loss
trilling. Wallace , however , was always
more llucnt with his pen than with his
sword. General Tuttle is a democrat in
politics , but ho is a patriot more than a
partisan , and the proposition that the
grand army was to bo reviewed at St.
Louis by a man who has spared no oppor
tunities to insult and sneer at its mom-
bciship , was more than his sturdy man
hood could swallow , hence his outbreak ,
which has attracted BO much attention ,
Ho was a great favorite with his regiment ,
the boys calling him 'Pap1 Tuttle , though
ho was then not more than forty years
THE I'AINTHUS STK1KB AGAIN.
A Walk Out Caused by the Krnploy
niont of Nou-Unlou Men.
The dispute which existed between th <
master painters and paper-hangers and
the men , which resulted iu a ctriko a
month ago , has been revived through the
alleged failure of the masters to adhere
to their agreement. At that time it was
arranged that no discrimination would
bo mudo between union and non-union
men ; the scale of wages was fixed nt
$3.75 per day of nine hours , and "timo
and a half " rates wcro to bo allowed for
extra work. In consequence of the mas
ters not adhering to this agreement , both
as regards wages and hours of labor , the
st nto executive board of the Knights of
Labor , after making a fruitless oll'ort to
arrnngo matters , ordered the union monte
to leave the shops until such time as the
question should bo definitely sot-
tied. All the union men ac
cordingly loft work yesterday
and a meeting of union and non-union
men was holilin the afternoon at Motz s
Hall on South 10th street for the purpose
of giving the non-unionists an opportu
nity to corno in and join the league ami
to discuss the question of tbo stnUo gen
erally. The proceedings opened with
the appointment of a committee to receive -
coivo th'j names of men who were desir-
ous to join the union. Only eight mon
responded to the call , and as there are
seine 150 non-union mon employed in the
shops the unionists regard this tictiou of
the former as a refusal to act in contort
with the loaguo. A lively discussion fol
lowed during which the action of the
masters and nou-unionists was freely
discussed. The spcccncs wcro of such a
nature that loft no room for doubt that
the men intended to to take a firm stand
until their grievances are mot. A
resolution was eventually carried
to the effect that the union
men would not return to work in any
shop in which non-unionists arc em
ployed. This action will practically put
a stop to all painting and paper hanging
work in the city for a time , as thn other
trades unions will not work on jobs in
which non-union painters and paper , .
hangers are employed ,
I The nerjtmtfln ! ? r I" " settlement of
I ' .lie strike will bo commenced ourly in the
week , and a committee of the executive
board of the Knights of Labor appointed
to moot the masters , with u view to an
oariy .settlement. _
A Card to ihfe Public.
The statement appearing in last evon-
-IIIR' . * BKI : in regard to the cause of the
trouble : it prcucnt existing between too
master painters of this city and their em
ployers being so very far from correct wo
deem It but justice to the public that
they should have the truth in the case ,
which in n few words is UP follows :
Upon the conclusion of the recent strike
thu demands of the stilkcrs having been
granted both as to amount of wages and
the timu which should constitute a day's
labor , the men returned to work with
the express agreement that the non
union men should not bo hindered from
filling the places which they Had occu
pied during the stilkc , and in opposition
to the above agreement the union men
now demand of the master painters the
immediate discharge of all men who do
not belong to their society. This calling
for a breeoh of faith on our part with the
men who helped us through the trouble
wo buffered during the strike , wo could
not accccd to their demand without the
forfeiture of every vestlgo of self re
Hcnco the present strike , appealing to
the sense of honor of the public for their
moral support. Respectfully , M. P.
THAT ALtiECHD CONSPIRACY.
A Union Pacific Conductor Rises to
NOKTII Pf.ATTi : , Nob. , Juno 17. To the
Editor of the BKI : : The intellectual
monstrosity who concocted the malicious
Ho that appeared In the Omaha Republi
can of thu 14th inst. , in which ho lire-
tends to have discovered a conspiracy
among employes of the Union Pacific
railway to rob that company , evidently
wrote the nrticlo while his feeble brain
was muddled with some cheap dive
whiskey. However , this does not ro-
Hove the management of that paper from
its responsibility. Wo would treat such
n silly article with the contempt
it deserves were it not for
the tact that this alcoholic
preserve takes such idiotic delight in
having "stirred them up , " losing sight
of the fact in his paroxysm of ludicrousness -
ness that railroad men are of some 10-
bpcctability as a general tiling , and im
mensely so when compared to sueli
things , who arc a bane to good iowspa-
porp and a disgrace to good society. His
glee must have been of short duration
and brought to an inglorious end , as lie
was confronted in Omaha by some ono
interested and made to "crawli.sh , " as
evidenced in the article of the
15th inst. when ho says : "In justice
to the men running out of
Omaha it may bo stated that they have
never been suspected. ' Most of the dep
redations committed have been on the
west end of the line , " and insinuating
that men running east from Cheyenne
have been discharged for some myster
ious offence in order to give his allega
tions some foundation , thinking that such
a scurvy effort to remove his b.ibo and
slanderous canard from those whom ho
probably fears would administer , a
little personal admiration which he
so richly deserves , would bo "tho bet
ter part of valor. " Now on behalf of
the men on this end of tlio line we say
without fear of successful contradiction
there lias been no ono running "east
from Cheyenne" discharged for this
oflenso during the last ten years , the
Omaha Republican to the C9ntrary not
withstanding. We necessarily look for
some motive for such nn unwarranted
attack. Can it be the fact that ten copies
of the BKI : and other Omaha papers are
sold on the trains and at stations to
every ono of the Republican ? If this has
actuated it we most indignantly protest ,
it is base ingratitude. Wo have seen the
news agents imploring passengers with
tears in their eyes to buy ono of these
papers offering extra inducements
in the shape of figs and peanuts , simply
as an experiment to sco if ono could bo
sold all to no purpose. The paper can
bo found on the trains , generally in the
water closets and occasionally contain
ing the lunch of some foreigner whoso ig
norance of the English language is sulli-
If the stockholders of the Republican
expect to build up a circulation in the
west ( and the Lord knows they need to ]
by slandering the respectable and influ
ential citizens of the "western cities
where startling developments may
bo looked for in tlio near fu
ture" they are greatly mistaken
If they do not make ample apology wo"
shall believe the stall' to bo composed
wholly of such mon as wo of tho''west

who is well remembered and a'lirst-class
blackleg , who was traveling representa
tive of that paper along tlio Union Pacific ,
whoso pass , conductors were ordered to
take up and unless ho paid his faro to
kick him from the train.
The only tangible clue the paper haste
to goods missed are two pair of brass
knuckles. This should clear
railroad mon from any complicity as
such articles nnd | blug shots are onlv
the tools of burglars , thugs and a certain
class of newspaper men. The manage
ment of the Republican should ascertain
whether the editor of this sensation is i
fool or a knave. If the former relegate
him to tlio society of feeble-minded
whom ho would disgrace , nnd if the latter
kick him from tlio ollico to Council Binds
and leave him there. The newspaper
men of that city have improved every
opportunity to throw mud at Omaha

him to the "west end , " where some o
the "conspirators" can teach him many
things , of which truthfulness would nebo

that the time is fast approaching whei
conductors cannot bo slandered with im
punity. if tlioro is any virtue in the law ,
by such insignificant curs , who can , for
a very small consideration , bo induced to
cover up true criminality and boodle ma

An Important PuhllshliiB Knterprlse.
Ono of the most extensive and most
creditable of modern undertakings by
Philadelphia ] publishers is that of repro
ducing i in our language thogreatGerman
work on the Arts ami Sciences , issued by
Brockliaus , of Loipsic , under the name of
the Bilder-Atlas. The Ixsipsic work is
very extensive , and deals with the whole
circle of knowledge which the subject
presents , illustrations accompanying tlio
text in the most profuse manner ; but the
Philadelphia publishers have made many
important additions , and have even
greatly improved the merits of the origi
nal. They have had the advantage of
dealing with the German work in its
complete form , and thus of being able to
rearrange its contents which were not
always systematic in their order in the
most logical and symmetrical sequence ,
from beginning to end. They secured
the services of Dr. Daniel G. Brinton , a
most competent authority ; as editor ,
and the American work ( which by
arrangement with Mr. Brockliaus is to
bo the only edition issued in the Knglish
language ) will bo a skillful arrangement
of valuable materials. Its title is The
Iconographio Encyclopajda , and two vol
umes are already out , the first treating of
Anthropology and Ethnography , while
the second , starting with Prehistoric
Arcrueology , goes on with the evidences
of development of intelligence in the
human family in fact gives an elaborate
History of Culture. Illustrations arc pro
fusely introduced , and they add a great
interest to tlio work by the fact that they
are pictures of actual objects m art or
archieology , reproductions of ancient
engraving , paintings , portraits , etc.
Their character and the high order of the
art with which they are executed increase
jnormously the importance , as well as
, hn cost , of the whole undertaking.

President Cleveland's rooont order to
return all rebel Hags captured during the
war , which has created so much discus
sion and mot with such strong opposition
by the loyal citizens of our glorious re
public that it was immediately with
drawn , will have no effect on the present
low prices of lots in South Omaha ,
IJriggs Place , Benson and other equally
good locations of which the C. E. "nuyno
Heal Estate & Trust company are solo
agents. While wo hardly feel authorized
to criticise the president's actions in this
matter , the sanio spirit of loyalty that
prompts us to take notice of the subject
at law , inspires ns to call on nil lovers
and followers of the Hag wo love so well
.o drop into the ollico of the above-named
. 'inn and examine the liberal inducements
offered in all desirable additions in the
city. Whether any decided steps are
necessary or not , this well-known firm
stand ready to furnish carriages and gen
tlemanly salesmen nt all times to show
these addititions and convince the people
that our talk is not idle.
Since the adoption of the new system

Place and South Omaha Syndicate are so
low that almost the poorest of the poor
are enabled to own property , the pay
ments being so easy as not to cripple anyone
ono in meeting them , wlulo wo can safely
say the numerous street and cable rail
ways now building are more to the liking
of the average American than transpor

wise enough to anticipate the increased
