DEMURRAGE REGULATIONS ,
The New Order of Things to be Introduced
bj the Bailroada To-day.
NO MORE FREIGHT BLOCKADES.
What Jobbers and Shippers In Otnaba
Think of It Bolter Tbt it Will
Expedite and Convenience
The demurrage regulations which will
go into effect September 1 on all the rail
roads centering here is not much of a
bob-fiobllu to the business men. Indeed ,
with an umazina candor , they admit that
circumstances are such that tlio roads
are forced to the adoption of some sunn
plans for their own protection. That
Ihis city has suffered repeatedly from a
Freight blockade , and the responsibility
tor it placed on the railroads , is a fuct
that cannot bo gainsaid.
The charges of demurrage will go into
effect September 1 , and the charges will
be imposed on all cars remaining loaded
torty-oight hours after delivery. The
business men , however , look at it with
out any apparent fear , and many of them
Frankly admit that the companies have
boon imposed upon tlmo out of mind ,
and cannot bo blamed for kicking now.
The iiowcll lumber company comes infer
for a round share of abuse , and
is charged with being the cause of the
regulation. It is claimed that this com
pany have had at one time as high as
300 cars in their yard at ono time , many
of them staying there for nearly sixty
days. A reporter for the UGG called on a
number of merchants and asked thorn for
the facts of the case. Some wore wary
and refused to express themselves , while
others talked freely , and with a singular
unanimity admitted that they hau Im
posed on the companies in the past , and
would continue to do so if they could
without cost themselves. A few wore
found who laid the entire blatuo for this
using of curs for warehouses on the rail
roads ana said the companies could not
handle their freight consigned to this
J. A. Wakofiold , said : "I can't blame
the roads for adopting this course. Lumbermen
men here have b'con in the habit of hold
ing cars from thirty to sixty days ; and
our company has at limes had as high as
400 cars in their yard at ono time. Wise-
people tried to run their lumber yard on
wheels and the company had just cause
to kiok. Agent McClintock , the coming
commissioner of this demurrage bureau ,
damned this lumber company
for not unloading cars , and dumneU
the railroads for allowing them
to use them.at their own convenience. I
have done the same thing , but I don't
believe the blame is entirely on mo. The
company docs not deliver cars as they
arc shipped. I have u capacity of un
loading ten cars a day. and. order my
shipment with their arriving here in lots
to suit my ability to unload them ; but the
railroads allow the cars to heap on the
road and finally drop down on us with as
many as seventy cars in ono day , thereby
blocking my tracks as well as their own.
Robert Kasson , of Paxton , Gallagher
& Co. "Most demurrage charges are no
moro than right. Take for example the
lumber and coal men ; they got in a lot of
cars hero and let them lay around in the
yards , taking up the switching room to
such an extent that the other merchants
cannot get their cars switched. This de
murrage will not hurt the trade of
Omulia. It will merely compel the lum
ber men to unload cars on arrival hero
and reload when they are ready to ship
to interior points. Personally , wo will not
be affected by the rule. It will rather
be a benefit to us , as we
will unload cars so as switched. Most
demurrage charges are customary in
Chicago and other points. It is only
right to do it , while U is an accommoda
tion to the lumber men , it is an injustice
to the other merchants and I am opposed
McCord , Brady & Co. Wo don't see
why wo should object to the railroads
making such charges. They make a rate
to deliver a car of freight here in Omaha ,
and when it arrives that road has aright
to charge for the detention of its
property. Wo never ask the roads to
hold any cars for us. The trouble hero
is that wo can't get the cars hero. The
roads claim the cause for this is their
inability to got the cars in owing to the
blnnkauo of the yard facilities by parties
refusing to unload cars.
W. A. L. Gibbon There has been a
great deal of trouble here in the Omaha
yards caused by the lack of yard
facilities of the Union Pacific road.
Tlfoy can't handle the freight
they receive , and the Iowa
lines arc kicking at the detention of their
cars. The right to charge demurrage
has bcon questioned , but 1 think there is
no question about the legal rights of the
companies to do so. If wo leave our
goods in the cars after A reasonable time
we are imposing upon the company by
using their property as storeago ware
houses. As a matter of fact , nowovor ,
tbo merchants here I don't think have
been doing that ; they are too anxious to
got their goods. The fault rests entirely
with the union Pacific road , which does
the transfer business for the city , and
have not the yard facilities to deliver the
cars promptly , for I have known of cars
sometimes being on tbo track here from
ono to two weeks before wo can get
them. This is a great inconvenience to
every merchant having business of this
character with the company. The com
pany cannot collect demurrage under
these circumstances , because freight is
not delivered until it is at our door. This
town has outgrown the capacity of its
railroad facilities. That Is the truth in a
Jeff W. Bedford This scheme of demurrage -
murrago charges is criminal for the pur
pose of expediting the unloading of cars.
It is right , because the companion have
beou imposed upon to a great extent.
They claim that the coal and lumber
merchants use their cars for warehouse
purposes. Hut the truth is , it is the job
bers of other commodities that is doing
it. livery largo merchant hero will be
effected by it. It will decrease the com
merce of Omaha fully 33 per cunt. ; it
will increase the number of our em
ployees , andcompotitivu cities will reap
the benefit , Jara are shipped to us in
such irregularity that wo cannot handle
them promptly on arrival. This matter
is a serious question , but \ro business
men can stand it. It isn't ours , but the
consumer's funeral. Vet it .seems to mo
it will be impossible to enforce this rule.
The lumber men will suffer the most , and
the ywill test it in the courts. I urn only
carrying coal enough to supply the de
mand of customers.
A. L. Nieles , of D. M. Stuolo & Co. I
don't know but that it is .simplv justice
for the roads to charge ili murrain ) . The
roads have been imposed upon by the
coal and lumber uion.'o never huve
any trouble in housing our goods within
twontv-four hours after arrival. I doubt
if the company can collect the charges
after they nro imposed , but that makes
the charges none the less just. The lia
bility of the company for the loss of
goods by thieves and fire is admitted
until the goods are taken from their curs ,
and I surely think they should bo enti
tled to some sort of protection. Wo have
no trouble with any of the roads and our
relations have always bcon of a pleasant
Omaha Coal and Goto company The
companies claim the dealers have been
using their cars as storehouses , Wo sup
pose they have been imposed upon to
some extent , but wo think they take ex
ceptional cases and make a general rule
of thorn. Wo suppose the lumber and
coal men will have to stand the brunt of
this thing , and have the responsibility
put upon them. Wo think the dealers
are inclined to act in harmony with the
roads in expediting the ] unloading
of carp , because wo think it is going to
work considerable hardship with us. It
will so effect the jobbing business hero
that it will transfer that branch of the
trade to distributing points cast of us.
Don't quote my name , for I am not dis
posed to bo interviewed.
Louis Bradford The organization of
this bureau was caused by the holding of
cars for an unreasonable time by the con
signee. It is an outrage on the compan-
igs and the consequence is that the tracks
are blocked. It will bo bettor for all if wo
are compelled to unload cars in forty-
eight hours after wo got our cars. It will
have no detrimental effect on the busi
ness of the city. I have now 125 cars
somewhere around hero , I would unload
them if they wore convenient.
lhl Moraine's Session.
The attendance at the conference ycstor
day morning was quite largo. The absence
of many of those who had boon assigned
to road papers caused several changes in
the programme. Dr. .Taylor of Now ,
York , who was president of a convention
in that state composed of all the county
superintendents of the poor in Now York
and was at that convention olcctod a del
egate to this conference , made a detailed
statement of the workings of the conven
tion. It consisted principally of recom
mendations as to sanitary regulations
about poor housns , supplying thorn with
water , etc.
F. M. Powell , M. 1) . , of Glenwood ,
la. , read a paper titled "Note on the Care
and Training of Feoblo-Minded Chil
In this paper the various tvpcs of de
fective mentality wore spociffed and de
fined. The ( litlercnoo.s between Idiocy ,
imbecility and dcmonlia wore stated.
The superintendents of American insti
tutions for feeble minded persons , in
their session of 1878 , submitted the fol
lowing : "Idiocy and imbecility are con
ditions in which there is a want of
natural or harmonious development of
the mental , acting and moral powers of
the individual affected , usually associated
with some visible defect or infirmity of
the physical organization , or with func
tional anomalies , expressed in various
forms and degrees of disordered vital
action. There is frequently defect or
absence of ono or more of the special
senses , always irregular or uncertain
volition and dullness or sensibility and
perception. The term 'teeblo minded *
is sanctioned by modern usage , it
being much moro acceptable to
parents and friends of the afllicted. It
has only been in the present century that
an active measure was instituted to care
for this unfortunate class of humanity.
Their lot before that time was one of
misery , want and loneliness. In the or
ganic laws of regulating schools in Mass
achusetts and New York , epileptics , par
alytics and others properly belonging to
the asylum wards ; explicity avoiding
custodial charges , so prominently con
sidered in our institutions to-day. It is
duo to the pioneer workers that they be
bo credited with early recognizing the
claims of the non-improvables as indi
cated by some of their earlier reports.
The numbers of this largo army of de
pendents as indicated by the census of
the United States in 1830 , was 70,895 , of
which 2,420 were in training schools ,
1,141 in hospitals for the insane , 5,429 in
alms houses , 241 in benevolent institu
tions , and 41 in jails , leaving a remainder
of 07,200 at home , or In private care. In
the care of dependent children , educa
tion is the chief consideration. In all in
stitutions , pupils are being taus/ht the
elementary branches of the English
language , with a fair show of success.
Physical training forms the basis of all
well directed efforts for the education of
Idiots. For this reason gymnastic and
kindergarten exercises enter largely into
training schools , not BO much for phy
sical benefits as a means of mental disci
pline. Through this medium the most
valued attention and imitation lessons
are impressed. Numerous devices aroused
used to cure the lack of power of atten
tion , so marked in this class. Mechani
cal means constitute a reliable factor for
developing thosenses , , the simplest kind
of labor with many , are valuable lessons
in fixing the attention and inculcating
will-power over the defective nervous
organizations so uniformly present.
Numerous "psycological puzzles" were
described , who are living in institutions
for the feeble minded.
"If we would aid in restoring the lost
harmonics of the universe , we must seek
for ourselves and our children that uni
form culture of the whole being in its
true nature , physical , mental , and moral ,
which in its completeness shall conform
to the lines of perfect symmetry without
excrescence or depression. When every
man and woman secures such culture ,
transmitting it to their seed utter them ,
there will bo no further need of hospi
tals for bodily or mental diseases or
prisons for moral offenders. "
The attendance at the afternoon ses
sion was not large , but the exorcises wcro
of an interesting oharacby. Promptly
at 3 o'clocK President Glres called tlfo
meeting to order ami introduced Prof.
A. O. Wright , chairman of the committee -
too on penal and reformatory institu
tions. Ilo explained that three papers
wore expected to be read under this
head , one by J. W. McCIaughroy , war
den of Joliet penitentiary , but ho 'is also
president of the Illinois veterans' asso
ciation , which is now in session , and ho
is in attendance. His paper was on
Registration of professional criminals.
Recently the wardens of the various
state penitentiaries heUi a convention in
Detroit and Mr. Claughroy was elected

then formed , for the purpose of keeping
a list of professional criminals , that they

Colonel F. J. Kei * . chief of police of Mil
waukee , on "Tho Police System of Mil

Rev. Hill , of Oregon , was then intro
duced , and lie read the last mentioned
paper , which was chiotly devoted to the
civil service system ot conducting police
affair * , eliminating politics.
William 11. Murray , of St. Paul , vig-
o ly protested against the methods of
conducting the business of the confer
ence. Too much time was t'tkon up with
reading papers , and moro than half of
those who wore listening wore unable to
understand what was being read , Many
members would like to discuss and criti
cise the papers , but had not the nerve ,
especially the ladies , to stand up unpre
pared and argue against the few who
prepared the napers and appeared to do
all thi talking at the conference. Ho
favored the printing of all papers in ad
vance , distributing thorn among the del
egates and thus avoid the loss of time in
reading them. Their titles simply need
be read. Ilo said there was a tint ) con
vention last year , it had fallen off one-
half this year and next year the few who
were doing all the talking might find
themselves alone at Buffalo.

A Misguided Young Man.
Earl W. Perry , a young man formerly
in the employ of Hill & Young , was
brought back to Omaha yesterday by
Constable Edgorton from Des Moiuus ,

ing $35 from his employers.
Perry is about twenty-six years old
and previously bore un exemplary char
acter. Yesterday when handed over to

HAVE A MIDNIGHT BATTLE ,
The "Dtvll'a Own Time" on Eleventh
Street Ijatt Night and an Ex-
Peelor'a Exciting Trip to the
A Small niot.
There was a pleasant party in Harry
lingua's shebeen , at the corner of the
alloy on Eleventh street , between Far-
naui and Harnoy streets , last night , and
the ruby flowed in unruffled currents as
the guests held their surcingles up to the
bar and quaffed the landlord's eternal
good health. About midnight the
wmo ran out , and Hagun , anx
ious to keep up the prosperous
tide of trade that had struck his place ,
deputized ono of the revelers to run
down the alloy to Pat Desmond's and
have the domi-john loaded with some of
"the best. " The individual accepting
this little commission was " Rcddy "
McCrca , u gent with "short cropped ,
tinted locks , amiable temper and cul
tured thumping capacity. "Roddy"
seized the domi-john , slipped out of the
back "door and put off down the
alloy in a hurry. Scarce three jumps
had .ho taken when a voice in front of
him broke out with a distinct , "Halt ,
who goes that ? "
"Who goes that , indeed and It's your
affair to find out , " rejoined Roddy not
the least dismayed and running on with
an effort to pass the obstruction with a
"Halt , [ say , " came the cautionary
summons again , this time in quivering
tones , "I'm an officer of the la' and
will take ycz in , sure , of yez
don't tell mo yor name an' ockipashun. "
"Well , you can't got action any too
quick , " defiantly retorted Roddy , drop
ping the domi-john and reaching out into
His hand fell on the person of Police
Oflicer Jimmio Brady and the next instant
found the two men at it , cudgel and
stave , cleaver f nd axe , with Roddy win
ning a steady advantage. They
fought up * the alloy and
down again until they stumbled
but on Eleventh street and into the light
shed by a friendly-lamp post. On the
opposite side of the street , seated on the
front piazza of the Emmett house , was
ox-Onicer Jerry O'Grady , smoking pen
sively as ho thought "d it" of Chief
Soavoy and the 'foil commission. His
quick oyn caught the trouble at this
stage , and recognizing his former com
rade in distress , ho bounded to the rescue.
"Howld on wid both two
of ycr hands , Jimmio Brady-
till I jino yez. " ho shouted encouragingly
couragingly , and the struggling Brady
lifted his bulging eyes in thanks as ho
caught Roddy's thumb in his tenth , and
shifted grips on his throat.
Simultaneously , co-inoidontly , or at
the same time , which is hotter , another
party was repairing to the scone in seven-
league boots. It was Ptitsy Horrigan ,
the detective , who had just thrown up a
rough shadow on burglarious looking
gentleman who turned out to be a report
er , and was standing at thoFarnam street
corner chewing a toothpick and thinking
up clows. He , too , saw the battle and
gallantly galloped to the relief. It is a
curious fact that Patsy and Jerry are
brothers-in-law and mavbo that's why
things happened as they did.
"Keep your hands off that prisoner ,
Jerry O'Grady , " was Horrigan's first
remark as on reaching the scene he
beheld his relative trying to pull Roddy
off of Brady's ' frame.
Now this was more than O'Gradyfor the
honest heart of him , could bear , so he
loft Brady to Roddy's savage attentions
and addressed himself with violence to
Horrigan. A moment later the detective
was spilled over the cobble pavement of
the alloy with a rap on the jaw from his
brother-in-law's gnarled and knotted fist.
"Ye will , Paddy Fresh , will yez ? Yo'll
monkey wid a life-sized gentleman , "
yelled O'Grody , cutting a wing-step , with
his dukes in position , as Horrigan slowly
andpainfully put himself together and
tested his bones as ho roso.
Horrigan made no reply but limped
away with a threatening shako at which
O'Grady gave him the "Ha , ha ; " and
"The terrier afraid of a rat , " and such
sorts of offensive gibes.
Meanwhile Roddy had finished his
business with Brady and made his es-
capo. With many an oath and stilled
groan Brady limped off with Horrigau ,
leaving O'Grady in undisputed posses
sion of the alley.
"Now , it'll DO the likes of Paddy Her
rigan to come back here wid a posse
corao-and-tbko-us of police. Will Jerry
O'Grady be arrested ? Naw , not in
a thousand years , " and Jerry tnus solilo
quizing armed himself with a dray pin
and took his stand in front of the Lm-
Ho was right in his surmise that Horri
gan would return , and with plenty of
backing , for barely a minute had oassod
when the patrol dashed up and out leaped
the detective , Captain Groan and three
"Stand backl What does yez want ? "
challenged O'Grady as the party ad
vanced upon him.
"Wo want you. O'Grady , " returned
Captain Green in lirm , determined tones.
"Then come and take mo. "
That is precisely what they did but not
until after a fight which in point of brutal
stubbornness overtops the Sunday prizo-
mill as the mountain outriscs the sand
hill. The clubbing to which O'Grady
was submitted was terrible. His face
and scalp were cut to pieces as the four
policemen dealt him blow after blow ,
liis own weapon had been snatched from
his hands , the blood drenched his cloth
ing , ho roared and shrieked with rage
and pain and fell at last on
his knees. Then into the
patrol wagon ho was thrown , where re
gaining strength to struggle again ho
was tramped under loot and choked into
submission. In this disgusting , almost
appalling , condition , Jerry O'Grady ,
once a well accredited oflicorof the force ,
was thrown into a cell of the station and
shortlv sunk into coma or sleep , it mat
Those events created the greatest OK-

Hold Thieves Steal $8OO Worth ol
About ono o'clock yesterday afternoon
two unknown sneak thieves entered the
Jewelry store of William Novo , No , CO !
South Tenth street , and succeeded In
bagging about $800 worth ot goods. The
room to the roar of the store is occupied
as an oftloo by Judge Brandos , and both
ho and Novo wcro away at dinner at the
time of the theft , The judge had forgot
ten to fasten the window in the roar of
his olllco , and it was through this that
the thieves effected their entrance. The
trays in the show oases were carried
back into the olllco and stripped of most
ot their contents. Among a number of
watches taken was a line chronometer
worth $300. Besides this there were
twolro cold and filled watch cases , bn-
sidcs fifty-six solid gold rings. In
their haste the thieves loft a few
rings in the trays. To avoid
being soon by the workk-gmen in Jor-
ffonscn's cigar store the thieves clamb
ered over the coal shed Instead of going
around it. They were observed by some
of the employes of Krug's brewery as
they jumped from the coal shed and ran
towards Eleventh street , and the only de
scription the workmen could give of
them is that one had on a dark and the
other a light coat. From about 10.30 up
to the time of the robbery throe men ,
two of whom answer the description ,
wore engaged in playing pool in Krug'a
beer hall , the baok exit of which opens
on the rear of Neve's store. Thco mon
disappeared about the time the burglary
was committed and were later seen tak
ing the train tor Iowa.
Startling Invocation of an Old Law
by Omaha Clothiers.
The Clothing Salesmen's association ,
through its attorney , W. J.Council , filer
information yesterday , against M. Gold
smith , Harris & Son , Edward Olson , D
Altman and Julius Bambcrgers for sell
ing clothing on Sunday- The action was
instituted on an old territorial law thai
drifted into the state code when Nebraska
was admitted to the sisterhood of states ,
An effort was never but once made to in
force the law , and that was under the
old territorial government , and durinp
the mayorality of J. M. Kollum. Ir
these days Omaha had but one barber ,
and two butcher shops. The second Sun'
day the law was in force the barber became
came disgusted and removed to Council
Blulls , and the men of Omaha had to gu
over there to got shaved , or wait tor the
boat to come up from St. Joe. That
week the two butchers hold a consults
tiou and concluded to sell no beef during
week days unless allowed to .do so , also ,
on Sunday. Mayor Hcllman was ob
duratc , and waged his war for aboul
three months. Then the citizens rose
and , at a mass meeting held in an old
frame building that stood about whore
the B. & M. headquarters now are ,
ordered the mayor to "striko < colors 01
ride out of town. "
No warrants have boon issued for the
arrest of the parlies complained of yes

That Tired Feeling
The warm weather has a debilitating effect ,
especially upon those who are within doors
most of the time. The peculiar , yet common ,
complaint known u "that tired feeling , "
Is the result. This feeling can be entirely
overcome by taking Hood's Barsaparllls ,
which gives now lit * and strength to all
the functions of the body.
"I could not sleep ; bad no appetite. X
took Hood's SarsaparlUa and soon began to
sleep soundly ; could get up without that
tired and languid feeling ; and my appetite
improved. " B. A. BANFOKD , Kent , Ohio. /
Strengthen the System
Hood's SarsaparlUa Is characterized by
three peculiarities : 1st , tbo combination ot
remedial agents ; 2d , tbe proportion ; 3d , tbe
proeeu ot securing the active medicinal
qualities. The result Is .1 medicine of unusual
strength , effecting cures hitherto unknown.

the truth of his story can easily bo veilflcid by
calling upon or addressing- him at his address
When catarrh lias existed In the head and the
upoor part of the throat for any length of tltne
tre patient living In o district where people
are subject to caUrrhal affection and the dls-
eaao bus been loft uncured , the catarrh Invari
ably , soraolltnos slowly , extends down the
windpipe nnd Into the bronchial tubes , which
tuboHconvey the air to tbe dlderont parts of
the lungs. The tubes become afflicted front
the swelling nnd the mucous arising from
catarrh , nnd. In some instances , booomo plugged
up. ao that uie air cannot get In na Iroolyaslt
should. Shortness of breath follows , nnd the
patient breathes with labor nnd dlllinulty.
In either case there la n sound of crackling
and wheezing Inside the chest. At this itaco of
the disease the breathing Is usually more rapid
than when In health. The patient haa also hot
dashes over his body.
The pnln which accompanies thlt condition U
or a dull character , felt In the chest , behind the
breast bone , or under the shoulder blade. The
pain may come and go luat few days and then v ,
be absent for several others. The cough that '
occurs In the flrst stares of bronchial catarrh Is
dry , comes on nt Intervals , backing In charac
ter , and is usunlly most troublesome In the
morning on rising , or going to bed at night and
It mar be In the Orst evidence of the disease-ex
tending Into the lunga.
Sometimes there are fits of coughing Induced
by the tough mucus so violent aa to cause vom
iting. Later on the mucus that Is raised , Is
found to contain small particles of yellow matter -
tor , willoti indicates that tbe small tubes In the
lungs nro now affected. With this there are
otton streaks of blood mixed with the mucus.
In some cases the patient becomes very pale ,
baa fever , nnd expectorates before any cough
In Borne cases small masses of cheesy sub-
Blanco nro spit up , which , when prossud be
tween the lingers , omit n bad odor. In other
caseD , particles of a hard , chalky nature are
spit up. The raising nf chcosy or chalky lumps
Indicate serious mlshlof at work In the lungs.

In such n case the sufferer should at once be
placed under inlluenoos that will restore the
defective nutrition nnd tend to invigorate tbo
It is to be remembered that In every case the
presence of catarrh is an evidence of predis
position to consumption , and no matter how
Bllirlit tbe attack may bo , It xhould be treated
with the greatest oiiro and the treatment
should bo continued until all traces of tbe
catarrh have disappeared.
If the catarrh Is allowed to reach the smaller
