Strange anil Fntnl Accident to Chris
KCKMIIK While Slaughtering n Cow.
Chris Koenig , a butcher , met his death
by a strange accident. He was employed
In a market opposite the Methodist
church on Droadway. On Tuesday even
ing ho was butchering a cow. The ani
mal kicked a spike in the door , used to
tie animals before killing. The spike
flew and hit Koouig , penetrating into his
bowels. Ho was at once cared for , but
the injury proved to bo a fatal one , death
ensuing yesterday afternoon. Koenig
was a comparative stranger here. On
his person was found $1.CO ! ) in cash and
n bank book showing $75 to his credit in
the Nebraska City bank. No one hero
Bcoms to Know anything about his rela
tives or his previous history. A telegram
has been sent to Nebraska Citv for such

Ing a largo number of chips , which had
been used in gambling. The boys
claimed that they had paid good money
for the chips , and when they came to
cash them they could not got the wealth.
Tlioy held to the chips. While Mntcalfe
was out getting his witnesses , Colonel
Daily , as prosecuting attorney , learned
this from informal inquiry , and ordered
the fellows discharged without any hear
ing. Metcalfo returned just as the fel
lows walked out. Ho was hot , but that
was all the good it did him. The prose
cuting attorney said ho did not propose
to put o.xpcnso upon the county bv try
ing such a cao.

The managers of the John M. Abbott

Bluffs carry-alls. They think this will

ficulties of getting conveyances to carry
passengers to the river where the boat
lies , they will probably arrange ditlor-
cntly for the next excursion from hen ;
up the rivor. They will probably arrange -
range to take passengers over the river
on the dummy train and from there go
up the river by boat , as they can provide
for the oxcurbiouists cheaper and more

Citizens Hurrah For Freedom.
In the superior court yesterday the
tnno was taken up In the trial of the
case of Justice N. Schurz against the
county. The justice presented to the
county board his usual foe bills for crimi
nal caves , and the county attorney ,
Calonol Daily , went through them with
an economical rye , lopping off various
items which he doomed in excess. The
board on his report offered the justice a
warrant for a portion of his bill , but re
fused to pay the portion which the county
attorney had cut out. llcnco the suit.
There were numurous items In the jus
tice bills which the county attorney re
fused to audit. Most of these items con
sisted of'fnes charged for continuances
and for bonds. The justice has fro-
qucntlv granted a continuance , for in-
ctunre , when a defendant is brought in
during the furcnoon , cutting the cii e at
2 o'clock In the afternoon of the
same day. In such cases the justice has
charged up fit ) cents for a continuance.
To this the county attorney objects. The
justice could not remember in each case
by whose request such continuance was
granted , or whether .by his own motion ,
on account of his having other business
to take his attention. The county re
sists numerous Horns of fit ) cents eaeh for
bonds liled. The county attorney in
some of these cases fails to lind anv .such
bond among the papers , and although
tlo ) docket shows the charge being made
for a bond , the county attorney iidiculus
the idea of a bond over having been tiled
in some of the cases , especially where
defendants were charged with vagrancy.
Un the other hand the justice explains
that when a defendant is given a contin
uance , it is quite frequently the case that
the justice makes out both a bond and a
commitment. Those ho places in the
hands of the ollicer , and if the
defendant furnishes the bond , good
and well. If not , the ollicer uses
the commitment and takes the fellow to
jail. Instead of charging up both bond
and commitment the justice charged up
the bond , although sometimes the bond
was not given but ! i commitment instead.
The justice thought it was as long as it
was broad , whether he charged the lifty
cents up for the bond or for the commit-
nicnj. The county , in his opinion , saved
by his charging only for the bond , for if
committed then ho was entitled to
another fee for issuing an order to have
the dofcndont produced in court again.
Colonel Daily scorns to be bent on
rattling Justice Schurx , and his cross
examination was very sharp and irritat
ing The justice kept pretty good mi-
tured through it all , but the parrying be-
twcen the two gontlemcn caused no little
amusement to the listeners.
An Invention Which Does Away
With Oil , nuil No Rloro Hot Doves.
A passenger car came in yesterday
over the Uock Island , which caused a
genuine wave of excitement to sweep
through the yards. This car has just
completed -1,000 miles of running , and
the journals have never had a drop of
oil. "This means a revolution in railroading
reading , " remarked one prominent olli-
cial , and the sentiment was generally en
dorsed by those who examined the car.
The car went out on No. a last evening ,
and will now make regular trips in and
out of this city. The peculiarity of the
car is in the journal , which
docs away _ with all need of
oil , avoids all hot boxes , and
is n wonderful saving in repairs
and in motive power. While ordinarily
it takes 550 to 700 pounds to start a pas
senger coach , fifty pounds will start this.
One man easily started it and pushed
it about at will. The journal is
surrounded and rests upon six rollers ,
each of which is 3J inches in diameter
and ton inches long. Through the cen
ter of each is a pin three-fourths of an
inch in diameter , around which revolves
seven rollers 0110 half inch in diamctor.
The journal box therefore consists of u
collection of rollers each of which en
closes still smaller rollers , the whole re
volving independently and yet together
about a common center. The slight
latinal motion of the axle is still further
provideil for by the ingenious device of a
steel ball in a groove at tLe cap of the
The inventor , W. S. Sharpncck , oi
Denver , was hero yesterday and now
leaves for Denver where he is to equip
the .special car for President Stronir , ol
the Atcluson , Topeka & Santa Fo rail
way. The prediction is made that that
tills invention will rculi..e for him more
money than has been made in railroad
ing. The Uock Island is preparing to
have a whqlo train equipped at once
with thcso journals , as tno car which
reached hero yesterday shows so little
marks of its 4,000 miles of travel without
a drop of o 1 of any kind.
What's In a Bnnd Name.
Colonel Castle of the Fifth regiment
Iowa guards , hastens into print with n
very earnast protest against the band ol
this city being called the Fifth Regiment
band. Ho takes it for granted that the
band is at fault for having this name ,
and thai it necessarily follows that it is
an attempt to make the public believe
that it is his regimental band. Although
there may bo more than ono Fifth regi
ment in the world , btill the colonel is
probably correct in assuming that there
Is a general understanding that this
band is , or is to bo , the regimental
band of the Fifth Iowa regiment. The
band boys have had a good deal of annoyance -
noyanco of late , more trouble than us
ually attends oven a new organization
like this. As they are gentleman with
many friends , and as they hiivo shown
themselves to bo worthy of support
and encouragement , the puhlio has n
great deal of sympathy for thorn. The
troubles have not boon of their own bring
ing. It is claimed that the skipping drum
major , who caused them so much trouble ,
was introduced by Captain Messimer , of
the Dodge Light guards , an oflicer of the
Fifth regiment. The boys feel that this
representative of the Fifth regiment was
as much responsible for their having this
follow for a drum major as any ono per
son. Thou the taking of the title of the
Fifth regiment baud is saiil to not have
boon at the instance of the band. Their
by-laws show that the name of the band
was loft blank , with the expectation that
they would adopt a name afterwards.
The band claims to have boon assured by
Captain Messimer that they would bo
chosen as the Fifth regiment band and
tlmt they would bo mustered in on
the Fourth of July. The name was given
them , rather than they adopting it ,
and instead of protesting against this
usage , the baud , fooling conlident from
the assurances given them that they
would soon ly > formally mustered in as
such , rather acquiesced. They after *
wards learned that the Fifth reciment
had n band nt Bedford , but learned that
it was practically disorganized. The as-
lurauce was given that this band was to
drop out , nnd that the hand hero would
th.cn bo mustered in. Thus the matter
has drifted along. In the meantime it
was learned that the liedford band , on
hearing of the organization here , had
taken a fresh hold , got new uniforms ,
and started in with fresh enthusiasm to
make n first-class organization of itself.
Thcso are about the circumstances as
told by the band boys. Now the colonel
of the regiment cnmcs out with n letter
declaring that the Carbcc all'alr was a mer
ited digraco to this band. It Is probable
thnt the band boys were too ready to
listen to the assurances ot others , who
claimed to represent the wishes of the
colonel and of the regiment. It would
have been better had they not acted on
thcso assurances , but had waited until
they wore actually mustered in , but the
name was virtually forced upon thorn
and put into general use , ami they ac
cepted the situation. If any of the ofll-
cors or members of his regiment were re
sponsible for the name being given the
band , the colonel should not bo in such n
hurry to rlur the band as ho did. The
band does not deserve any such hasty
cha tldcment. It looks as if the colonel
was not satisfied with Carbeo getting all
the free advertisement which the career
of the drum major has caused. The band
will adopt some other name and will ex
plain fully to the Bedford band in cue
time. It will also give the colonel the
details of how the name was thrust upon
Auction Snle of Ijots.
There was quite a largo attendance yes-
tcrda'y afternoon at the auction sale of
lots at Kegatta place. These lots are on
Lake Manawa , near the boat house. The
lots were sold at prices ranging from $05
to if 1)5. ) They arc lifty feet front. A goodly
number were .sold and the few remaining
will bo closed out at auction this after
noon at 5 o'clock.
The colored folks of this city have ar
ranged for a great celebration to-day and
expect a largo number from Omaha to
participate with them in observing the
anniversary of the great liayti emanci
pation. There will be a procession , pic

A Drummer's liaaotmll Story.
Chicago Mail : "Up in Dakota last
week , " said a commercial traveler , "I
saw the queerest game of baseball that
was over played. All the players were
blind ; yes , sir , blind as an eyeless bat.
Of course , you don't believe it. I didn't
believe it either till I saw 'em play. How
did they do it ? Just like any other play
ers , with the exception that they used a
ball especially prepared for the occasion.
Through this baseball there was a hole ,
and in the hole there was a little concern
like that which you see in a harmonica.
Un the homo plato there was a little bell ,
which the umpire rang by pulling a
string just before the pitcher fired a ball.
Judging on the position of the base by
the sound of the boll , the pitcher put the
ball right where it ought to bo.
"As the ball sailed toward the batsman
the air rushing through the hole in it
played a little tune , and it was by this
sound that tlft batsman made his strike.
It was the satuo with the Holders. Where-
over the ball wont it was singing its lit
tle tuuo , and the sound was all the player
had to judge by. Handle the ball ? V\ ell ,
1 should say they could , They played a
line game , and I toll you that the musio
of the ball whi/.zing and soaring about
the Hold , and those blind fellows catch *
ing and throwing it just as if they could
see , made a scone never to be forgotten.
The members of these blind nines. wore
all inmates of a Dakota blind asylum , but
if they can make proper arrangements
they are coin" on the road as an exhibi
tion. They ' 11 draw immense crowds ,
A OaniblcrWho Didn't Bluff.
Chicago Enterprise , July 27 : The
habitues of a saloon on Main strcot were
treated to a lively little game of poker
last night , at which pistols turned
trumps , A few nights ago a stranger
and n young gambler around town
known as "Stove , the Kid. " wore play
ing cards , They had some misunder
standing and the stranger got away with
the pot. Steve swore that the first time
he caught the other man playing ho
would grab stakes. So ho awaited his
time , and last evening saw his opponent
engaged in the fascinating game with a
large stock of money before * him. Steve
walked up to the table , grabbed the
money , put it into his pocket and started
to leave. "Stovo , come back , " called
the stranger. The kid turned around
and looked down the mu//lo of a six-
shooter. He started to draw , but the
stranger told him that the slightest move
ment of that kind would send him to
"kingdom come. " All ho wanted was
the kid to replace those "chips" in ex
actly one minute's time , which was done.
The other players came out from under
the table and m from the street , and the
gamp proceeded without further inter
