'What the city of Lincoln needs Is moro
water nnd that speedily. The council
has been figuring on an increased supply
nnd the entire city Is clamoring for It and
yet the famine continues. The lire de
partment has urged , In reports , the dan
gers engendered by delay and the coir-
nion impression is that Uio Humphrey
block could have been saved nt the recent
fire If a proper water supply had been
available. The engineer at the city well
lias repeatedly called attention to thn
scarcity , and the use of water on lawns
has been curtailed and yet the supply Is
wholly Insulllciont. It is the opinion of
both the engineer nt the water works and
the chief of the lire department that a
lire occurring between Op. m.anJ mid
night would , have practical control of
itself and the department bo handicapped
in Its workings. While the present dry
eeason continues tlio parties who have
purchased water for lawn privileges will
use it , and , judging from reports , the
supply is not Millicicnt for lire purposes
nlonc. There is nothing that demands
the undivided attention of the council
'more ' than the water question and the
city.is not exempt from extra danger
until the problem is satisfactorily solved.
HAVS sin : WAS FAI.SI : .
_ Among the cases tiled yesterday in the
district court won a petition In divorce
brought by Isaac Frolshcttc , who makes
rather vigorous charges against his wife ,
who it would sooui , is a resident of
Omaha. The petition filed In court re
cites that Mary Freishetto were married
in Canada in 1870 , that for the past three
years the complainant has been n resi
dent of Lincoln uud that for all of that
time he has boon deserted by his wife ,
Mr. Frolshotto charges in hid petition
that in 1883 his wife committed adultery at
( St. Williams , province of Canada , with
ono Frank A. K. McCall , and further
charges that his wife has boon for the
rmst year living with this Frank McCall
in oDun adultery in the city of Omaha ,
nnd that she is representing herself to bo
the wife McCall. For tin-so reasons the
plaintUT auks a divorce from hid unfalth
ful spouse and the usual amount of ad
ditional relief that the court may grant.
Williiim L. Granger has also filed a
petition for divorce in the district court
ids cause of complaint being also adul
tery on the part of'his wife. The charge
made in his petition is that his wife Luol
M. Granger and himself were married In
Howard in July 188.1 , and that on the 30th
of June 1837 and 2nd of July 1887 she
was guilty of the crime of adultery com
mitted at120 F street with a man whoso
name to him is unknown. Hence he
wants a divorce.

The recent wreck on the H. & M. at
South liciul on Tuesday night appears to
have been so unanimously the fault ot
the dispatcher that no attempt will be
made to load the responsibility upon
one of the engineers. As the wreck oc
curred in the night it is possible that the
same dispatcher was handling these
trains who handled the trains the night
of the llnvolook wreck , when the high
priced operator at that station was exonerated
onoratod by the coroner's jury and the
blame loaded upon Engineer Dowser.
Lincoln has thus far missed a rain It

A SEALSKIN COAT.
The Trouto ! that n Cleveland Man
Hai Ilcooinc Involved In.
The following dispatch was received
the other night from Washington , says
the Cleveland Loader : On the tith of the
present month A. Goldsoll , ot Cleveland ,
O. , returned from a trip to Europe , ar
riving at the port of Now York by tlio
stMunsliip Trave of the North German
Lloyd line. Ho carried on his arm a
sealskin coat , After the custom olliccr
hud examined the baggage ot some of
Gohlsoll's fellow-passoiigor.s Goldsoll
throw down his sealskin coat upon the
same and waited for his own baggagn to
bo inspected. The sealskin was dis
covered by ono of the ollicmls. "That's
all right , that's mine , " quickly spoke up
Goldsoll. But they did not bulieve him ,
nnd at once siozcd upon the coal. Gold-
Boll claimed that ho bought it in
this country , nnd an ho went over
to Europe in the cold weather he
had worn it Even this did not satisfy
the otlicors.and they refused to allow the
garment to pass without the customary
duty. Then Goldsoll tiled with the sec
retary of the treasury a protest against
the action taken in confiscating the coat ,
alleging that ho bad bought it in London
for i30 , and had imported if for his per
sonal uso. Assistant Secretary Maynard
took charge of the case ; and to-day sent
his decision to the collector al Now York.
Ho rellocts in his letter severely upon
Goldsoll's action , nnd In view of the hit
ler's stories , etc. , is of .the opinion that
an effort was being made to avoid paying
duly upon nn article that was clearly h
nblo. Ho adil'sd that ho would
leave the whole matter discretionary
crotionary to the collector as to whnl
should be done , saying In e licet thai the
full duty should be assessed and n fm <
added toil for the government. Ho .say :
that if Goldsoll had not carried the coa
as ho did , and then thrown it down upoi
the baggage which had been examined
nothing would have been thought of tin
matter , and ho would have boon nllowcc
to pass with it and no questions asked.

gold about the size of a gold dollar. It

nieces of gold in California claimed to be
the first found , but none of them have
the facts in favor of their claim. The
discovery of this piece of gold by Mar

was found. It was the seed that up to
1880 had produced $1SOO,0)0.000 ! ) in gold.

Dr. U. M. Dawes , the dentist ofost
\\iisliington , WHS ono ot the forty-Hlners
who started out from Washington. Ho
was talking over the matter with u Star
reporter. "A party of us. " ho said ,
"took a sailing vtnnel at Kaltlmoro in
March , and wo were seven months and
fourteen days making the trip to San
Francisco. There were my brother and
ex-Senator Snrgaatit , then a local re
porter in Washington , ono or two oilier
Washington boys and myself , and there
wnre quite n number of others from llnl-
timoru to maku up thu party. That wits
the way Sargent tirst went to the state ho
afterwards represented In the senato.
Wo hatt a pretty hard voyage. The cap
tain of the vessel treated us so badly that
when wo got to Hlo do Janeiro wu com
plained to lha consul and had him re
moved. This caused a delay of fourteen
days. Then ut Valparasio we had to un
load a steam engine and other cargo ,
which caused a delay of twenty days
moro. It wits a very weary voyage be
fore we got to Sun Francisco , Sargent
did not go all the way with us. lie got
oft"nt Valparaiso , and frpm there .sailed
to San Francisco in another vessel. I
remember that he studied Spanish all tlio
way from Hattimoro to Hio do Janeiro.
"When wo arrived at San Francisco
several of our party who were carpenters
Etoppcd there. They got $10 a nay for
working at their trade there , and
thought it better than taking the chances
in the mines. There worn siin my party
who wont into prospecting. Evvrything
was fever and excitement there then.
All sorts of sensational reports of big
finds were circulated , but there was not
as much outlawry as many people sup
pose. In San Francisco there was con
siderable gambling. It was not much
of a city then. All the buildings were
frame and the gambling houses were
like the frame barracks they put up for
soldiers. The gaming rooms were in the
front and the bur in the rear. Gamblers
would pay $00 a night for ouch table.
'They never counted the money , but just
.stacked it up on the table , uud measured
It In that way. The gamblers were the
only men who were while shirts.
"There were no courts. If a man
committed an otleuso in the dlggins ho
was Iried by twelve men , selected for the
occasion , and Mhi'ir decisions wore
prompt and just. For that reason Ihcre
were few crimes committed. Our gold
was left in the camp without anyone
ono to guard it , and it was
never stolen , I would sometimes
leave a day's diggings iu
a pan out in the sun to dry. No cue
over disturbed it. For serious crimes the
jury of twelve would hang a man ; for
potty hircnny they would horsewhip him
and give him twenty-four hours to get
out of camp. If a man sunk a pit and
threw a pick or shovel in u , ho could go
ou prospecting , and if ho returned any
time within Ion days he would find his
claim to tlio diggings respected.
"When our party landed , " he con
tinued , "we went to Sacramento , whore
wo got three yoke of oxen and a wagon
that hud come overland , and started tor
the diggings , well stocked with pro
visions. We went first to South fork ,
then to North fork , or Feather river.
There was so much mini that wo had to
abandon our cattle and wagon and carry
our packs on our backs. Wo did pretty
well , but I was nick and had to keep out
of the trenches and give up mining for a
whilrt. When wo dissolved partnership
at North fork n sack of flour fell to my
share and 1 sold it for f'JOO. 1 then
bought a boat and gun and shot quail
anil jack rabbits nnd sold them in Sail
Francisco. Quail brought and $8 per
do/.on dead and $1 ! ) alms , and jack rab
bits ? 7 and ? S each. The second time I
went back to San Francisco the cholera
\\i\s raging thero. Men were dropping
dead like slienp.
" 1 wont to the diggings again , ami wo
en mo across a big rook , near Middle Fork
standing high out of the water , which
whirled in a swift eddy around it. Wo
know if there was any gold in thai 'ocal- '
Hy it would bo right in this odd } * . So wo
filled the bags with sand , made a dam to
turn the water aside so that wo could
gut nt it. The very first dip of my pan
brought up $ 'J18 worth of gold. After
working there a weeK wo divided up ,
and each had ? 'JOO ' as his share. There
were six of us.
"After wo got thai hole worked oul wo
began on the high banKs nnd il paid
well , bul the work was too dangerous ,
t There were largo lee o rocks overhead ,
i and one day 1 just saved myself by
swinging to a ledgn in time to let one
pass under mo as it rolled down the bank ,
After thai wo stopped work Ihoro. The
ncxl rich place wo struck was in Onior
valley. When we gel Ihoro it was st
cold that wo could work only two hour ;
f a day , but eaoh of us made from $30 u
> ' | 40 a day. The gold wns in largo nug
a gets. Some were found worth ? 3 ( ) to $50
It was very late when wo struck there
and wo could not stay long on account o ;
the cold. Wo left a party there , and mj
brother told mo thai they mid beci
snowed in without fuel , and most o
thorn were severely frost-bittenand semi
died from exposure.
"None of us got rich , " Dr. Dawes con
tinued. "Ino trouble with all the minor
was that they did not stay in ono placi
r long enough to make it pay. If they hat
t been content to stay whom they won
making $10 to f20 a day they might havi
done well. Hut there wore always falsi
c reports of immense finds somewhon
' clso , and they would pull up stakes am
move on , only to find that they had beoi
fooled. No matter how well they wor
doing a report of something bettor carried
riod them oft" , In this way they spent ai
much'in prospecting they made ii
'digging. Some of them got terribly 'a
moralized. I have sroa strong meri cry
ing because they could not get home to
the east. Their folks could not send
them aionoy to bring them back , and
they could not earn enough ,
' With all our good luck I pticss the
most money 1 had at any one tlmo was
about ? 1,500. Each \ycok the members of
a company had a way of guessing at the
amount of gold they had accumulated ,
thn man who came fartherost from the
mark to pay for a bottloof whisky. Mono
of my company could make out how it
was that 1 never had to pay for the
whisky , i always guessed last and put
the ligurcs between the two extremes , so
there was always some ono further from
the mark than 1. '
"It was roughing it with n vengeance
out there. I have slept out in the winter
rains without a tent , and merely some
thing over my head to keep the rain
from battering my face , nnd llttlo
trenches duq around my body to carry

The rallioad lies laid down near Reno
nineteen years ago , have been taken up
and found to tie In a ported state of
preservation. An analysis to determine
what protected the wood from rotting
will be made at once.
Prof. Hilgard , of the university of Cali
fornia , lias furnished a remarkable
analysis of whisky sold in Sacramento.
The Bee of that city sent him seven sam
ples of whisky purchased iu an equal
number of saloons , from the fashionable
fifteen center to tlio vile live cent
doggery. The result of the analysis is
siillieicnt to astonish the patrons of the
hiiih-tonetl saloons and precipitate n run
on the groggorios. Samples number ono
otul two were purchased at fashionable
saloons , patronl/.ed by the best class of
the community. Tlio professor found
that the samples varied little In qual-
tlty , The bead was good , taste
sweet and aflortaste peppery , flavor rank
and raw.uiilikngoiivliiu whisky. "Alcohol
by volume , ! )1.3 ) per cent ; total solid con
tents , .1)5 ) per cunt. The harsh aflcrtaslo
of samples is due to the addition of resin
ous substance , probably gum catechu , or
possibly kino. Besides this its pungency
has been restored , after the addition of
water , by means of a tincture of popper ,
probably "liuiuea pepper , " to hide the
fact that it Is over 1)7 ) below proof i. e. .
lacks 18.0 of the 00 per cent of alcohol
that "proot" spirit ought to contain. Its
"bead" has likewise been doctored by
the use of n vegetable tincture ; but ft
contains no glycerino. The spirit dis
tilled from this sample shows the pros-
oneo of a largo amount ot commercial
fusel oil , or nmyl alcohol. It has besides ,
however , a weak flavor of genuine
whisky , which luu doubtless formed the
starting point of tin ; whole. " Uumpln
number six was bought at the vilest
don m the city , into which uo
decent niHii would dare to bo seen enter
ing. It is the rt-fiige of thieves and the
home of the depraved inebriate , brought
to his lowly condition by the vile potions
of that and similar places. Yet 1'rof. Hil-
gunl'.s remarkable analysis makes out
the whisky sold there better than that at
all the reputable places in town save ono.
It is made out to be superior to number
one , every drachm of which was im
ported direct from the distillery and
which is reeogm/edliy whisky sellers and
drinkers us pure1. "Analysis : Alcohol ,
by volume , ilS.O per cent ; solid content ! ' ,
by spindle , .8 ! ) per emit ; total sngur , .83
per cent. The spirit from distillation
.showed the flavor of whisky rather less
strongly than should have been the case ,
but contained no fusel oil or spirits of
nitre , creates the suspicion of the addi
tion of neutral spirit. The residue trorn
distillation showed no foreign addition ,
to the taste , and the close correspond
ence of the total solids with the sugar
test corroborates this point. This sample
appears , therefore , to bo whisky , with
probably the addition of some neutral
spirit , but nothing else.

The World Ono Market.
"Tho Economic Disturbances Since
1873" by Hon David A. Wells , in Popu
lar Science Monthly : Ono of the most
momentous and what may bo called hu
manitarian results of the recent great ex
tension and cheapening of the world's
railway system and service is , that there
is now no longer any occasion for the
people of any country indulging in either
excessive hopes or fears as to the results
of any particular harvest ; inasmuch as
the failure of crops in any 0110 country is
no longer , as it was , no later that twenty
years ago , identical with high prices of
grain ; the prices of cereals being at pres
ent regulated , not within any particular
country , but by tlio combined produc
tion and consumption of all countries
made mutually accessible by railroads
and steamships. Hence it is that , since
870 , years of locally bud crops in Europe
iiivt ) generally witnessed considerably
jnver prices than years when the local
crops wore good and there was u local
surplus for export.
In short , one marked cfl'cct of the pros-
Mil railroad and steamship system of
ransportation has been to compel a
iniformity of prices for all commodities
that are essential to life , and to put an
end forever to what , less than half n
century ago , was a constant feataro of
commerce , namely , the existence of local
markets , with widely divergent prices
for such commodities. How much of
misery and starvation a locally deficient
market entailed under the old system
upon the poorer classes , through the
absence of opportunity of supplying tlio
deficiency through importations , is
shown by the circumstanou that in the
English debates upon the corn laws ,
about the year U.840 , it was estimated ,
upon data furnished by Mr. Tooke , in his
"History of I'rieeH , " that a deficiency of
ouo-sixth in the English harvest resulted
in a rise of at least 100 per cunt in the
price of grain ; and another estimate by
Davenant and King , for the close of the
seventeenth century , corroborates this
apparently excessive .statement.
