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 olutions : 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 , andWhereas 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. SWIPP DISSOLUTION. 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 ( frcoubncks ami silver , wrapped in ttfo ro.il cotton handkerchief ) .

They brought In a rtmJict m accordance with the facts , the remains were removed to the coro- . ofllco. nOAUD OF'PUIILIO WORKS. 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 bo laid. 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. Curbing Fourteenth street from Lcav- enworth to Marcy street , $457.21. To Hcgan Bros. & Co. , from Center to Martha on Tenth street. Balance duo $8,090.22 , To Stuht & Hummell , excavation be tween Pacific and Williams on Twelfth street. Balance due $2,335.00. The following inspectors were ap pointed : John P. H. Boyd , C. C. Thrano and J. S. Behm. Meeting adjourned until Monday even ing at 7:30 : o'clock. 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 old. " t 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 spect. 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 Remark. 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- cient excuse. 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 end of the lino" have come in contact with , notably u gentleman from Denver , 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 Sue should now take this revenge and compel them to associate with sue ! a renegade , for a time at least. Bctte still , put him on a braKobcam where wi will venture ho will bo at homo. Som him to the "west end , " where some o the "conspirators" can teach him many things , of which truthfulness would nebo bo the least. They might also toll him 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 nipulation and then endeavor to make a balance by such n contemptible display of imbecility. Such men would soil their own reputation for a rotten egg and cheat tlio purchaser. CONUUCTOK. AMU8KMENTS. The Clone of JcflVy-Lowis' Cngngc- inent at the Iloyil. Miss Joffry Lewis' engagement came to n close at the Boyd last night in "CIo- thilde. " The piece Is ono of Sardou's , which was accorded its fivst presenta tion in Ouialia. It is essentially Sardou. in strength of development , identifica tion of character and manipulation of a theme which ancdates the author by many years. In brief , the story is that of a woman who has given heart to a lover of the mechanical aud , according lo the French , conventional order. The latter , without qualms of conscience , without oven imagining that ho is doing anything to which hii former love may take exception , conceives a love for n young girl whom ho conceives to bo all that is pure and innocent in womanhood. This love , the hero tolls to Clothildo. The latter is offended because she is not made its object , aud secretly seeks to be rdvcugod. ; Th.c ob'Dcl of tha hero's love Is a girl \vhoui Clothlldc formerly rescued from depraved associates. This fact is con cealed from the hero until after the mar- riago. Clothildo then seeks to destroy the happiness of the married pair by dis closing the fact of the bride's anteced ents. A separation seems imminent , but at the last moment Clotilda resigns a letter , indicted a , moment before mar riage , which re-establishes the love of the young wife in the breast of thn hero , The story is an old ouo. It has been pro- settled iu new style , and U Tory stroncl.y told. Miss Lewis' interpreta tion of 'the character is ttrong and forci ble. It is characterized by an intensity at times almost domonlacnt She was ad mirably sustained by Miss iLillian Owen and Harry Mainhau. MIM Lowis' visits to Omaha have beun untimely. They have been made in the heat of summer , when it is too much to expect people to swelter in a theater. But she has found admirers among all who have scon her because she is unquestionably an accom plished and powerful artiste. TIII : CIHCUS TO-IUV.

Now the lifo indemnity carries the risK above cited at a guaranteed cost of the lirst year , $175.53 ; second year , $149.70 ; total amount paid under the artilicial or level premiums in two years , $750.40. inference in favor of the Lifo Indemnity ana Investment company , $414.10 , or a sum sufllcicnt to purchase $14,087.48 , which , added to the $10,000 , would give $ .14.087.48 of lifo insurance for two years , as against $10,000 under the level premi ums. The radical difference between the tw9 plans is tnis : Under the level or arti ficial premiums you are forced in addi tion to paying for your insurance to-day , to prepay for the future. Under the Natural Premium , adopted by the Lifo Indemnity and Investment company , you pay ( is you go and net what you pay for. Jnsnrance that docs not insure is dear at any price. Insurance that costs beyond the needs of safely is an unjust burden. That system is the best which combines safely with the minimum cost. Mr. C. 11. Baker , General Agent , is de sirous of securing good and reliable men of experience in the lifo insurance busi ness to represent this company in Ne braska.

The older records of deeds in Douglas county are very imperfect and it is almost impossible to ascertain from them alone whether the title to a given piece of prop erty is perfect or defective.

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. Volume 3 , Painting and Sculpture , with 43 quarto plates , representing ancient , mcdiaval and modern art , is nearly ready. Mr. O. H. P.

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.

Within ona year South Omaha will contain a greater population than the entire city of Omaha did in 1870 nnd then people will bo say ing , "What a fool I was ; why I might have made several hundred per cent on this property if I had only had sense enough to invest in time.
