The Third and Lmst.
Harper , the now Omaha ottchcr , made the
lilt of his llfo yesterday , and should now re
tire on his laurels , lie only gave seven men
bases on balls and hit four others. It seemed
that If ho couldn't send a man to base one
\vay , he'd do It the other , and after the
Oinahas had won tha game In tlio second in-
ulng , by piling up seven runs on a beautiful
bunching of lilts , ho turned right around and
ttavo It nway by tlio most slovenly work In
tlm nolnts seen on the home grounds this
season. Jantzcn , the catcher , was also olT ,
and caught and played all round llko the
veriest novlco at the game , in truth the local
battery yesterday was an unqualified botch ,
nnd when at I la best it Is but of the uiosl
ordinary description.
Both sides were kulsomlnod In the first
Inning , but In the second the Omahas on
seven corking hits , Including Walsh's homo
tun and Meosltt's two-bailor , and a bouquet
of errors by Johnson , scored seven runs , and
tlm handful of people present howled with
In tlio second and third the Topekas scored
ft single tally each , but In the fifth they took
the cake , the crackers and the bakery , rolling
UD no less than six runs and not making a
Blnule hit
This Is the way the old thing worked , and
It IB a fair sample of the wholu game.
Stearns went to on live bad balls , stole
second without half trying , and went to
third on a passed ball. Weriicn was hit by
Harper , and ran down to the next bag on a
passed ball. Johnson hit out toward Dwyer
who rot the ball and threw homo In plenty of
time to catch Steams , but of course Jantzen
inulTcd the ball , and Johnson took second ,
ftacullar then goes to first on balls , and
Harper thumps Uoldsby In the ribs , and Wor-
den Is forced In , nnd still tiie bases are full ,
bnced lines one to second , and Mossltt by a
lightning throw home * nIps Johnson at the
plate , leaving all the bai s still occupied.
It Tuen to liven up matters Macullar runs
homo on Jantzon's third passed ball , nnd the
others move up a base. Arden hit to llarper ,
. who threw to first , but too I a to , and on
lawyer's throw to third to cut off Uoldsby , the
ball pots by Messltt , and Uoldsby and tineed
both score. Qunson Is sent to first on balU ,
forcing Ardnor to take second , and Uie next
minute he ran clear home on another
passed balk Stearns out to .Dandle ended
the agony.
Here Jantzon went to the field , Dandle to
second , Messltt to third and Pusselbach bo-
li I nd the bat , but the change did not bring
The Topokas tried hard to lose the game ,
but Itva Impossible , and just as darkness
was coming on they knocked In a couple of
runs and the game was ended.

A Colored Woman's Mysterious Death in a
Cell of the City Jail ,
How n Colored Cyprlnn Perished In
the Lock-Up and tha Htart-
llng Rumors of the
A Wmnnn'n Strange Death.
Gcorgio Clark , the castaway , whoso
death yesterday morning nt the city jail
compelled a non cst in hot cnso to bo
rondcrc'l as a pica , promises to attract
more attention in death than she claimed
in life. The circumstances of her death
are involved in such conflicting accounts
and formed such a largo space in yester
day's papers , that the HKK , determining
to ascertain the full facts OH obtainable
from oppostto sources , detailed a re
porter last night to visit all the persons
connected with the affair in any manner.
The deceased is universally described ns
having been of a color between mulatto
and black , of a vivacious disposition ,
possessed of an education obtained
at 'the high school m this city ,
and being a skillful pianist and
and a good singer , She was born and
raised in Omaha , where her mother and
sister now reside , and took to the town
after the death of her husbandwho com
mitted suicide on account of jealousy at
her light conduct. She was in a measure
reclaimed by a man named John YY.
Fielding , with , whom she lived as his
mistress , adding to Jicr support by him
in playing on tlio piano at various houses
of ill fame in the city. Jnoldin ? , who is
also known by the name of Shakespeare ,
was formerly a soldier and latterly in
partnership in the liquor business with
Hans Young , whoso sudden flight from
Omaha some weeks ago with the part
nership assets , compelled the re
maining partner to accept a
bartender's place nt the saloon
opposite tbe Metropolitan hotel ,
on Douglas street , whore ho was found
last night by a reporter.
Ho is a white man and disclaimed any
regrets or shame felt for the ambiguous
position ho sustained towards the de
ceased , alleging gratitude un his part for
kindness receive * when needed , at her
bands as the reason of his forgotfulncss
of color in bestowing his protection upon
her. His story is as follows :
On Monday night between 10 and 11
o'clock he saw his paramour going
towards their lodging place on Farnam
street and followed her , thinking by her
gait that all was not right. On passing
the corner nearest to her abode , she was
observed by two policemen , one named
Brady and the other whom he docs not
know , who also followed her. So main
tained her gait until reaching her home ,
where she foil in a swoon in the vestibule.
There she was met by the proprietor of
the house , a man named Ewalt , who , in
stead of assisting her to her room , sig
naled to the two policemen , Brady and
the unknown. Their arrival and his own
wore simultaneous. Ho bogged the o ul
cers not to arrest her , disclosing his re
lations to her and assuring her that he
wonld remove her to her room and prevent -
vent any disorder. They disregarded his
entreaties and remonstrances , and order
ing him gruffly to 'more on , ' dragged the
woman along the flags in her insensible
condition to the nearest patrol box , fully
forty feet away. By this time she sulli-
ciently revived to be able to talk , and en
tered the responsive patrol wagon with
out much assistance. Fielding fur
ther said be followed the patrol
wagon as far as possible and arrived
at the station in time to see the woman
then partially recovered from her stupor ,
thrust into a cell with a dissolute white
woman named Hose Mulev , who resented
the intrusion and the two began a frco
fight. Fielding says they fought for a
long time undisturbed by the police ; ho
alleges as his reason for not interfering
and demanding of the police that they
separate the combatants , his fear that ho
would bo locked up , an event which
would prevent Ills presence m court in
tbe morning with bail to liberate his
dusky friend. Continuing , he says that
after some time when the yells of the
women became unbcarabblo , Officers
Ormsby and Crawford entered the cell
and parted them. In removing tbe de-
coastul to another cell , OIHcer Crawford ,
who bad hold of her , brutally
struck her , not once but several
times. After being violently
thrown into the now cell she never
spoke. A reference to witnesses who
saw the brutality was furnished.
While Fielding was narrating hia story
to the reporterXftlcer Crawford in uni
form entered , demanding a retraction of
the statement in an afternoon paper that
ho ( C. ) violently dragged the woman
from the patrol wagon to the jail. This
retraction Fielding cheerfully made , de
nying the utterance of such a charge ,
but persistently refused to exonerate the
ollicor further.
French Em's house , in which the dead
woman had often in lifo played the
piano , was next visited. Both the pro
prietress and the inmates bore witness to
the many good qualities of Georglo
Clark , and said they seldom saw her
under the influence of liquor , and never
helplessly so. ' 'If poor Georgio had
come here last night , " said French Em ,
feelingly , "this would not have hap
pened. "
f , } . P. Dorwood , a black man , was found
at Wood's hotel , on Capitol avenue , bu-
twoon Eleventh and Twelfth streets. Ho
was a prisoner in the jail at the time of
the occurrence , and corroborated fully
all of Fleming's statements regarding
Crawford's brutality. Ho says he will
swear positively to the blows struck , and
the identity of Crawford as the man who
struck them. Ho further says the women
went cant ( led to fight , and such taunting
remarks as "III Hose , you got to sleep
with u iiigRor to-night1 and others of a
like kind were usort to o asperate and
nngnr the white prostitute.
1 ho body of the deceased is laid out
awuiting interment at her mother's
honsu on Capital avenue , near Ninth
struct. An Inspection of it discloses a
coiilusioa over one of the eyes nnd
wounds on the breast , side nnd groin ,
'i no resembling the prints of boot
'u > Is. Much bitter fooling is manifested
n uiu residents of the vicinity at the
liiuto of the coroner's inquest and the
fact tliut the relatives of the dead woman
weru not Infarmod of her dnatn , which
was discovered by thorn accidentally
while the body lay at the undertaker's
ready for transit to the Pot
tor's field. The sister of the
deceased said that yesterday morn
ing while she and her mother
wore on their way to work , passing the
city jail , thev were saluted by two of the
police ollicors , who allowed them to pass
on without intormint them of Georgie'e
At the jail the officers worn reticent ,
simply contenting themselves with deny
ing in tote the charges of brutality.
About midnight Mr. Maul , of the firm ol
Drexel & Maul , repaired to the house ol
the deceased and placed ice on the body.
At the inquest held jn the morning , the
police to whom alone the coroner could
look for the facts in the case , deliberate ) }
withheld all testimony of the violence ,
greater or- less as. It may bo , which they
certainly know. . the woman had
auflorcd at Ihctlr hands. To
further cloud the fairj purpose of the pro
ceedings Detective liorlgan secured n
place on the jnryu Tl'o verdict , so
speedily found , was'written ' by D. M ,
Connell , the foreman , and sot forth that
the woman had comtvto her death from
the excessive use of o'lickor. " Whothoi
this travesty on iK6 'sblomn ' proceedings
was a betrayal ofjgnoranco or an out
break of honthonTsn , humor , none but
the author can explain.
The excited colored fncnda of the
dead woman announce their dctormina-
tiou to prosecute an invcotigation.
The Hlg Buffalo Ueact Casting for the
Union Pacific Bridge.
A telegram received from New York
last night , states that yesterday after
noon , Mr. Favoy , of the Favoy Bronze
works of that city , cast a bulFulo's hoiul
out of bronze for tlio Union Pacific mil
road company. The head will bo placed
on the bridge now building across the
Missouri river from Council Bluffs tc
Omaha. The casting is the largest single
plcco over cast in this country , weighing
0,000 pounds. _
Mr. Morsu'n Successor.
The feeling Is now obtaining among
railroad men that the appointment oi
Mr. Tibbitts as the successor of Mr
Morsp as general passenger agent of the
Union Paciilc road is but that of a fiann
head , and in no way likely to satisfj
the requirements of the position ,
Mr. Tibbetts is a man of bnl
comparatively slight experience in tin
passenger business , and is not such ns tc
warrant his successful coping with the
duties ot the ofllco. It is also alleged
that the appointment , if such it nia\
bo termed , is but temporary and
that the real successor of Mr. Morse IP tc
bo cither John N. Abbott , chairman ol
the Western Trullio association and ex-
general passenger agent of the Erie road ,
or A. C. Dnwes , general passongei
agent of the Kansas City , St. Joe &
Council Bluffs. Mr. Abbott is ono ot the
brightest and best known passonccr men
of tlio country , a protege of Jay Gould' *
nnd a friend of Mr. Potter's.

The following communication was
road from the city treasurer :
Gentlemen : The police and fire funds are
exhausted and the general fund will be In a
weak or so. That means that warrants
which will be Issued between now and Janu
ary 1 , shall bear Interest at 7 per cent and
be dlscouiitcclr-if sold at all at a loss to the
owneis of from 1 to 3 per cent of face.
This Is a hardship to the men
who work for the city , De they contractors or
servant * of the government. And yet this
order of things has existed time out of mind.
Apart from the direct loss to the tax-payer In
being compelled to pay 7 per cent on the city
paper , there is a ( creator Indirect loss iu this :
That labor could be obtained and work done
at much butter rates It there were a reasona
ble probability of having cash to pay when
the warrants are Issued. Stationers , furni
ture men , and contractors Keoerally will HB-
ure Interest upon their JSlds. Moreover , tlie
petnlcnce ana anger of creditors are some-
tunes very embarrassing.
1 believe that all of ttaiu earn be . remedied.
There Is no law In existence to prevent tlit
cltv council from raising the valuation ol
property as returned by the county assessors ,
But , If this course tw objectlouablo-
and tax-payers would no doubl
protest against It the.ii there Is r
safer and bettor plan : Balsa the
valuation of districts or wards to correspond
with other districts and wards. There Is n
picoo of property whoso owner holds It at n
valuation ot 315,000 which was returned by
the assessor at 8750. The city council
sought to raise this and other descriptions
last year , but the owners ot the property
protested because them were very many
more glaring Inconsistencies which re
mained undisturbed. Why not brlntr all
such cases up to a common standard ? This
Is equalization. The assessors'valuation ot
Omaha Is 51,000,000. Itouulit to bo 840,001-
000. You cannot make a levy ot more than
4 1-10 per cent. Four percent on 840.000,000
Is Sl.COJ,000-a big tax , but , If collected for
ono year , there would bo a gratify Ing reduc
tion thereafter until a minimum of U per
cent would be reached. * * *
JOHN HUSH , City Treasurer.
Mr , Hasoall said that ho buliovod tiiat n
part of Mr. Rush's communication was
all right and ho believed in it , but an
other part ho thought w.ia a little off.
The police and lire fund was not ex
hausted. If it wore true , as mentioned ,
thU the fund was exhausted , equalization
would not , could not , act ns u remedy.
It was not true that there was no cash to
meet tlio warrants.
Mr. Leo moved that the communication
bo referred to tlio committee on linaucu.
Tlio motion prevailed.
Sewerage Rudommundinp the build
ing of n sewer in district number 3 from

trict GO. Adopted.

Sewerage Ordering sewer , water and

rnngomonts can bo made for a city hos

Council Hi..a- , ll.l.l -A * .1
nil's Bridge company to desig
nate ono street upon which thuy shall
build their approach to their bridge over
the Missouri on this side of the river and
and give bond to pay for damages which
may bo sustained by thn building of thn
approach to the same.
Mr. Bailey said ho favored limiting the
company to two streets from which tc
select the approach and would allow
thorn thirty days in which to make their
selection , after which they should lese
tlie privilege of cither. Ho thought that
eventually they would select cither Doug
las or Dodge struct.
Mr. Snyder said that ho did not think
the company should bo allowed moro
than one street to select ns an approach.
Mr. Ford said if it were true that the
contractors were here to build the bridge
iu question , ho could not see why they
wanted six streets to select from. They
ought to be just as competent now to se
lect a place us they will a month hence.
Mr. Burnham said ho thought Mr.
Bailey's idea a good one. It was neither
top restrictive nor yet too oppressive.
The amendment was adopted.

The warm woatlicr lias a debilitating effect ,
especially upon these who are within doors
most ot the time. The peculiar , yet common ,
complaint known as "that tired feellue , "
Is the result. This feeling can bo entirely
overcome by taking Hood's SarsaparlDa ,
which gives new llto and strength to all
the functions of the body.
"I could not sleep ; had no appetite , t
took Hood's Sarsaparllla and soon began to
sleep soundly ; could get up without that
tired and languid feeling ; and my appetite <
