Last week week when the attorney of
the Klkhorn road appeared before tlio

oidcdly specific. When the former
charges wore considered the board held
that they were sulliclcnt for an action

spccilic charges and they have thorn now ,
for they were duly lilcd yesterday. One

Yesterday llio council committee ,
Messrs. Itn-sooo , Ullliugaby and Pace , as-
. Bemblcd themselves together at the coun
cil chamber to bear thu evidence in.tho
' ' , ' charges preferred by .certain'citizen ! )
' , . gali jt Police.JudgeP raon . , The par-
tiofl tnnkitiff thechargcs were represented
by Messrs. Uonrtnay nud Strodoa , and
Mr. C. h. Mngoon appeared for Judge
rnrsoim. Iho speclllo charges against
thn police judge are that nt sundry and
divers times In the year 1880 and spring
months of 1887 ho levied lines upon cer
tain ramblers nnd assistants and that the
lines no collected monthly were In some
instances wholly , In other instances in
part , never made a matter of record on
the judge's docket and never were paid
over to the proper parties to receive
lines collected from such sources. In
support of these clmrecs the parties
bringing the suit tiled a list of specified
times and amotintt not accounted for nnd
had these figures compiled by an export
who has bc'-ii Investigating the police
judge's docket for several weeks. The
other charges against the police judge
worn tlmt Hues collected in cases heard
by him outside of city business hail never
been paid over to the county treasurer as
the law requires done in ton days , and
the expert reported something likn $200
in lines of this character shown on the
docket but not , turned over to the county
treasurer. At the time the expert dis
covered this fact thu judge paid into the
treasury a portion of the back funds nnd
thu BEE was informed that the balance
ot the back funds were paid yesterday to
tlio county treasurer. How the council
committee will construe the restitution
of the funds as they ! accumulated
for the past year or so , will bo divulged
in their findings. At the hearing so far
as it progressed yesterday , the export ,
Mr. White , who went through the docket
of the court , was the principal witness
and his tontimony was in regard to what
the docket shows and its failure to show
records of tines that the complainants
state wcru collected from them by the
judge. The examination was only well
under way when the hearing was ad
journed until Tuesday.
Governor Thujor was at home nt the
executive olllcd yesterday after several
days absence in the southern part of the
Charles U. Bate * , of Beatrice , adjutant
on the stall'of Brigadier General Colby ,
wns at the state house yesterday looking
niter the preliminaries of the coming
state militia encampment.
Articles incorporating the bank of
Nelson located at Nelson , Nnckols
county , were filed with the secretary
yesterday. The capital stock of the bank
is $50,000. Articles incorporating the
MeCook Telephone company were also
lilcd. Capital stock $10,000 , with Sam
L. Green and others incorporators.

Havcrly's mastordons closed their en
gagement at the Boyd night , highly
entertaining a large audience. The most
noticeable feature of the programme
was the equillbristic act of Hilton , the
climax of which was his picking his
landkcrchlof ot ) the stand upon which ho
lad placed two chairs on the highest
ung of the back of each of which his
, cgs rested. While thus situated , bograd
ually bent backward a distance of nearly
nine feet anil picked up the bnndkcrchio :
as above indicated. It was a dangerous
act and was most skillfully performed.
This evening there will be an excellon
| ) orformanco given by the Baureis &
Puls Gorman dramatic company. The
piece will bo "Schuster , " with an accom
panying moral of "Shoemaker , stick to
your last. " The piece abounds in musica
selections nnd will introduce all the lead
ing members of this now popular com
Mr. John Brandt , well known as the
late mannger of the Stadt theatre , and
the man who has done n great deal in
building up the Gorman drama in this
city , has returned from his European
trip with hia brother-in-law. He was
absent about two months. Mr. Brandt
is in the best of Health and speaks in the
happiest terms of the pleasure wliicli his
trip nfl'ordcd him.
Mr. August Uhlig , one of the best mem
bers of Baureis &Puls' Gorman diauiatic
company , has severed his connection
with that association nnd joined the Ger
man company as MoVickcr's theater in
Chicago. Ho loft on Wednesday last to
spend a few weeks at Columbus with
relatives. Ho will then go to Chicago to
open his engagement , which will con
tinue throughout thu year. Mr. Uhlig
has made many friends among the Gor
man people of this city , nnd his acting
wus universally admired , as much by his
associates on the stage as those in front
of the footlights.
This theatre was filled again last night ,
as it has boon HO many times before , thus
itonsifying the fact that a good variety
theatre in this city may be sure of draw
ing patronage. The performance was H
rich and varied one nnd was highly en
tertaining till the closing hour.
The Trouble between Messrs. Cronyn
and Eaton.
For some time there has been difficulty
between Win. W. Cronyn and Edno L.
Eaton. Both are photographers , nnd the
question between thorn is in reference to
the gallery on Farnam street near Four
teenth. The case has been ventilated in
courtand was published in the BEE from
time to time. It seems that Mr. Cronyn ,
tired of litigation , moved out of the gallery -
lory a day or BO ago. Yesterday the rumor
was circulating tlmt ho had loft town.
An inspection of the abandoned studio
reveals a condition of total wreck within.
Every article of furniture and item of
apparatus has been removed , and the
ceilings , walls and floors look as though
some one had been practicing upon them
with an axe. On thu third lloor there re
main thousands of negatives which accu
mulated during Mr. Eaton's years of
work. Some of these have evidently
been tossed Into it corner , whore they lie
in a mound of crushed class.
The report was current last evening
that Mr. Cronyn had left the city.
Somewhat In corroboration of this theory ,
a call at-his residence. No. 822 South Six
teenth street , failed to discover him. Mem
bers of his family who wore still there ,
stated ho was still in town and wns ex
pected homo at any moment.

Western Financial Affairs.
CHICAGO , August 0. | Special Telegram to
the DUK.I llnnnci.U affairs remain In
about the same condition as noted during the
pact two or three weeks. The dnmiud for
money was only moderate from all sources ,
nnd the market was easier In a guttural way ,
though Interest rates were shaded only In
special cases. Bankers are wull supplied
with loanable funds and all parties able to
present good collaterals experience no dlill-
culty whatever In obtaining all the favors
asked for. Less money than usual was
loaned to pay for grain and provisions deliv
ered on the first of the month , consequently
the inquiry from the speculative element was
limited. Orders from the country tor cur
rency wore somewhat larger and an increased
amount ot money was forwarded to grain
districts. Lumber dealers have been light
borrowers. Wholesale merchants have pre
sented some paper for discount , but chlelly
to pay bills of goods received. Some
goods for the fall and winter trade
are being forwarded to more distant distri
buting districts , Kates of Interest weio quot
able at 5g8 ( per cant on call and C@S per
cent on time paper , depending on the amount
ot manor required and the standing ot the
borrower. Very little paper was presented
on the street , and rates of Interest range at
4 ( 7 pur cent. Money In eastern llnancial
centers was quite close early in the week ,
but ruled castor again within the past two
or three days , owing to the prospect of the
treasury department disbursing considerable
money In the way of anticipating interest on
bonds. Kates of Interest ranged at 5@7 per
cent. Advices from abroad Indicated a little
morn activlt y in monetary all airs The de
mand for money was a little more active
and Interest rates were strong. The Bank
of England rate advanced to 3 per cent.
This Is partially due to a specula-
Ivo movement In securities In
IHI London nmiUet. New York exchange
was In good supply and the demand was
imited. Tlio market HI led dull and drag-
lnc throughout the wcuk. Sales between
auks wore made at 60@70o discount per
81,000. and the market closed easy nt ( We.
Foreign exchange wns offered rallier Ireely
and the demand was Irestrictod. Exports of
breixilstutls and provisions wore moderately
free , and shippers sixty days documentary
bills on London were dull and dragging.
Sales were made at $ , and the
market closed easy nt S4.UU@ri.bO > .
The New York stock market exhibited
.noro activity during the week Just closed ,
but the feeling was somewhat unsettled and
prices ruled irregular. Karlv In the week
there was more pressure to soil many of the
leading stocks , and tlio market ruled weak
and prices declined materially. At the de
cline there was a little more Inclination to
purchase and prices rallied again , and closed
. The "shorts"
comparatively steady. bought
rather treoly at ttio decllnea.whlch assisted to
Borne extent In checking the down
ward tendency of the market. Wall
street operators traded quite treely nnd out
side speculators traded only moderately.
Chicago parties limited their operations to
small quantities. Advices fiom abroad In
dicated an easy feeling and lower prices In
tlmt quarter early , but showed more steadi
ness near the close. The earnlncs of the
leadlnc railroads nro not quite so large us
during the past month or two. Sales on the
Now York stock exchange for tha week ag-
greirated 'J.lOO.uoo shares.
The leading grain and provision markets
attracted consideinblo attention durini ; the
week just closed , notwithstanding "the un
usually hot weather and the fact that It Is the
dull season of the year and the time when
heavy operators enjoy a season of vacation
and rest. To a great extent , the course of
prices has been regulated by thu report of
tbo weather condition In the south and west ,
and the advices in reference to the
outcome of the haivest for small
grains. Dry and hot weather In
the corn belt of the west has rotaided the
growth of that cereal and Initiated considera
ble dnmnge In some sections , though frequent
showers In Rome portions ot the country
tributary to the Chicago inarKet have tended
to revive the plant to boino extent ; nnd ,
while the prospects of an unusually heavy
crop , as anticipated six weeks ago. are out of
the question , there Is little doubt but a fair
crop In the aggregate will be secured. He-
pnrts relative to the yield of small grain are
somewhat conflicting , but the majority lean
to the conclusion that the production of
wheat , oats , rye and barley will barely reach
the expectations of one month or six weeks
ngo , though the quality l.s generally cood.
Foreign markets have shown considerable
weakness , yet the low prices ruling for
Hour and wheat have encouraged mer
chants to purchase rather freely In
n quiet way. The eastern markets have
ruled easy and have not sympathized much
with advanced prices for some articles gained
hero. The shipping demand for both grain
nnd provisions has been quite active , though
some of the purchases were not mndo on the
open market. Tlio movement of grain to
the leading markets , both east nnd west , was
moderately tree and shlpncis quite liberal ,
considerable grain being distributed through
the eastern nnd middle ntntes. The stocks of
new grain are gradually enlarging.
The supply of provisions is moderately
large , but somewhat lighter than a vear
ago. The receipts of hogs have been lighter
at all the principal markets ot the weat , and
the quality Is not as good as previously re
ported. The packing of the w st continues
to decrease as compared with last vear's re
turns. The nrrlvafs of cattle are quite large ,
with prices favoring buyers.
Mocljcska a Graiulmother.
The readers of the BEE who will glance
over the list of births published in this
morning's paper , will note , and with con
siderable interest , that among those who
have for tlio first time experienced the
responsibility and pleasured of paternity
and maternity are Mr. and Mrs. Ralph
Modjoska. The latest successor to this
name , revered and honored in a brace of
hemispheres , is a boy , and consequently
grandson of the distinguished actress
whoso genius and lady-liKo demeanor
ore so well known to our people. The
happy circumstance of thn presence o :
the countess in Omaha at this time , in
view of thu motherly fooling site
is known to possess for both her son and
daughter , will bo warmly rejoiced over
by many of her friends , and the hope wil
be general that the grandson , now the
object of the great actress' solicitation
nnd care , may bo worthy of the name
which has descended to him.

those Interested in these worthy and

The outlook is indeed promising for an
enjoyable season of the different brother
hoods , nnd the respective members are
looking forward to the cool evenings
coming on npnce with an eagerness that
well attests to the benefits and pleasures
they derive from the associations of the
lodge room. To tlio uninitiated this is
all Greek , but to the sir knight to tlio
links rf the golden fraternal bund , it is
fraught with a significant moaning no
other tiding can convoy. Of all the
pleasures and enjoyments , with which
the weary journey of life is but sparsely
interspersed , none surpasses and but few
equals , those realized bv the true Mason ,
the Odd Fellow or Pythian within tlio
sacroil precincts of the charmed circles.

THE Ai'ou.o club , much encouraged
by their cordial reception at their first
concert , have perfected their arrange
ments tor next season. Mr. Young will
continue to bo the director , ana
the club will civn throe concerts. A
somewhat now departure will bu inaugu
rated , in that these concerts will bo given
to associate members only. No tickets
will bo sold at the box olliee or elsewhere.
Thn object ot this plan is to enable the
club to forestall its expenses in n meas
ure. A moment's rollcction will convince
anyone that the expenses of
providing three concerts is con
siderable , and that much better
preparation can be made with an assured
sum from associate members , to build
upon , and it is only right that in return
for tins they should have exclusive rights.
Each associate member will receive for
his annual fco of $10 , four tickets to each
concert , twelve tickets iu all , bcsulo the
privilege of admission to certain rehear
sals ; a very good equivalent for money.
The number of associate members will
bo limited to 200. The club is now re
ceiving applications for associate mem
bership. Application may bo made to C.
1) . Dorman , president , Nat M. Brlgham ,
vice president , C. E. Burmcstor , treas
urer , II. W , Snow , secretary , or to any
member of the club.
