Dropping Metaphor , Hoey and Hardy ,

is perhaps equal to the most suc

Hardy is well-nigh unapproachable. Ho
is but a buffoon on the stage , but his sim
ulation is the result of artistic conception
and , what is moro , artistic delineation. It
is Hardy who creates the laughter and
the fun , and every auditor niisaea him
when ho is out of sight.

A Citizen's Mcetlni ; Fora Police Pro
test to Ho Hold To-night.
A special mooting of the council was
hold last night pursuant to the following
call : "Omaha , Sept. 3 , 1887. A special
meeting of the city council is hereby
called to meet Friday evening , September
2,1887 , at 8 o'clock p. m. , at the council
chamber for the purpose of rescinding a
resolution introduced by Mr. Hascall
and adopted by the council August 31 ,
188 7 , authorizing the appointment o
eighteen special policemen ( one by each
councilman ) during the fair. Also for the
confirmation of the fifty special policemen -
men to bo appointed by the mayor. "
Fifteen members answered the roll.
After the reading of the call Mr. Hascall
moved that the mayor bo empowered to
send In tho'names of fifty policemen for
duty during the fair week nnd that they
bo paid out of the police fund. The mo
tion was a surprise to the members who
were not lot into the secret tactics to bo
adopted to oll'sut the storm of indigna
tion which found vent in the call of n
meeting to-nlglit by the citizens of
Omaha to insure police protection ( or the
city during fair week. The object of the
mooting was stated by Mr. Kiorstead ,
and ho thought the rescinding of the reso
lution adopted nt the last meeting the
first stop necessary. Argument was then
in order , which was absorbed by Mr.
Hascall , who degenerated into abuse of
mayor , the police commission and Gov
ernor Thayor. ' Hn claimed that open ef
forts were made to .whip the council
Into subjection ; that the council was a
patientnud suffering body , bat ( tut
their rights had boon infringed upon.
Ho claimed that the conditions of the
charter had been violated by the police
commissioners and they deserved no rec
ognition at the hands of the council. He
was willing to leave the whole matter to
the arbitration of any disinterested per
sons , to Judge Potjplclon nnd Mr. Woolworth -
worth and any three romitnblo citizens
of Omaha. Ho claimed the action of the
appointment of special policemen by the
council was done In good faith ; that It
was the intention of each councilman
to appoint his quota , one man , fully
worthy of the place , and bear the cost of
his services. The Idea of each coun
cilman's pocket scouring a pollco fund
during the week was a new one to most
of thu members nnd smiles wcro scon
nnd titters hoard on its announcement.
Mr. Alexander disclaimed that any such
intention was coupled with the council's
nppointmcnt of special policemen , but
Mr. Hascall insisted that it was and
proved it by referring to the liberality
of the council in contributing from
their private funds to the entertainment
of the coming Now York firemen. Sev
eral of the members wcro of the opinion
that the mayor's pollco appointments
should bo accepted without qualifying
the fund out of which -they were to bu
paid , but Hascall insisted on his whole
motion , root-hog-or-dio , and warmed up
again with thunders of abuse on certain
people , and the mayor in particular.
After ho had grown hoarse and red in his
tragic oflbrts ho enacted a farce by the
declaration that no man in public ofllce
should bo actuated by private spite ; that
ho did not bellovn the city council was
actuated ; that personally ho was not ,
Regaining rest ho called for the question ,
it was precipitately rushed through , the
ever-faithful majority chiming thulr ages
While Hascall hold the floor n commu
nication was received from the mayor
announcing the appointments ho had
made , They were in order accepted and
arc as follows :
James Bowie , Peter Briilm , Martin
Bock. J. E. Burke , Robert L. Cells , Pat
rick Douglas , P. J. Dougherty , James
Doyle , C. II. Fitch , James S. Given , C S.
Kotohkiss , John Hamincn , P. II. Horan ,
Hiram Harris , Jerry Hennessey , J. C.
Hubbard , P. A. Heilman , R.T. Hevollyn ,
D. D. Jones. F. A. Johnson , A. C. Jack
son , 11. Kibboy , C. V. Kendrick , R. A.

Sullivan , Chris. Shlimmc , M. Stegnicn ,
Joseph White. James Loaming , A. W.
Waits , Gus Burke , John J. Robins ,
Westcrdnil , F. Bonncr.
Hascall again get the floor and moved
that the mayor bo requested to solicit sub
scriptions to supply any deficiency in the
police fund. Mr. Leo thought the words
"solicit subscriptions'1 not difinlflod
enough and smacking too much of beg
gary. Ho moved to amend by inserting
the words "to toke the necessary stops , "
and thu motion was carried as amended.
An invitation road requesting the coun
cil's attendance in the firemen's celebra
tion September 8 and 0 was accepted.
Hascall onuo moro getting his wind and
the floor , called attention to the call of
the citizens' mooting to-night. He said the
names signed wore the tail-end of the
( BKE ) subscribers and characterized the
board of trade as a useless factor in the
city's interests , receiving from the coun
cil a $10,000 lot worth $50,000 and ending
their labors with the erection of a build
ing and issuing stock. Ho claimed the
call an outrage to the council , and styled
the proceedings to be enacted as'star
chamber doings. He moved that a meet
ing of the people bo called for to-niuht
and hold in the city hall.
Patrick Ford thought the idea a good
one. He did not believe in bankers , law
yers and boards of trades calling meet
ings. Pat Ford was the poor man's
friend , und he never wanted to represent
the rich. Ho was in favor of calling a
monster mooting in Jefferson park
whore the people could meet ann tell
these high toned gentlemen who they
Mr. Hascnll , feeling his throat and
finding It sore from the night's exertion ,
declined an open air mooting , and it was
no longer thought of.
Mr. Kiersteadt was not opposed to a
so-called people's meeting ; Do would at
tend it , but ho submitted that it should
bo held on Monday night to let these de
siring to attend the meeting to-night do
so. Ho wished to attend the meeting at
the rooms of the board of trade and the
people's meeting too. Ho desired all in
terchange of opinion possible looking
towards the public good.
"Man alive ! will ycdemano yoursol'by
attindin' the matin' to-nolghl : shurc ye
weren't invoitcd at all , " exclaimed Air.
Ford in amazement. Mr. Kierstoad re
plied that all citizens wcro invited and
requested Mr. Ford to read the paper for
"Arrah the paper ! " exclaimed the dele
gate from the third , as though he re
garded paper but a commodity in which
to wrap merchandise ,
Mr. Alexander said ho wished to at
tend the meeting to-night and the one
contemplated also , therefore ho desired
the postponement of the latter.
Mr. Lee said ho was the poor man's
friend , and no one venturing to dispute
the assertion ho grow pathetically remin
iscent of old times when Bovd was mayor
and honnst Tom was marshal , a golden
ago. The speaker's oys grew watery and
without warning ho uttered as n bible
truth his belief that the police of Omaha
were sulliclent in number for the ample
protection of the entire city.
Mr. Alexander opened Mr. Loo's eyes
and intelligence with statistical figures
proving that New York city with a debt
of 1130.000.000 had one policeman for
every 700 ; Philadelphia one foreverv 800 ;
Louisville , one for every 800 , and 'four
teen other cities one to every 700.
Mr. Lno fought shy of the figures and
said as far east as Germany you might
find two police for one man , but the people
ple of Omaha didn't need policemen ,
they were able to take care of them
Mr. Kitchen endeavored to cut the
Gordian knot by an adjournment , but the
question was called and the motion
parsed , the old majority coming to the
front , and a people's meeting was de
clared called for to-night in the city hall.
The meeting then adjourned.
The attitude of the board of public
works towards the gas company , com
pelling it to fill Its lateral tranches with
river sand , brought Mr. Murphy to the
ollico of the board yesterday to pretest -
test against the compulsion. Ho claimed
that to comply with the chairman's
order would entail a great deal of ex
pense upon the company , expense to
whinh it had not previously been sub-
jpctod. The whole subject of trendies ,
filling , flushing , puddling and tamping
was die-cussed , Mr. Murphy retiring
under the impression that the chairman
of the board was inexorable In his de
mand for the sand-rilling of laterals
while lie did not insist upon sand in the

THE NATURE OF MEERSCHAUM.
tlowtoUlMtngnlah the Genuine Arti
cle from Knolln ,
A subscriber in Oregon sends a sort of
Macedonian cry for help In the form of
Information about meerschaum. Ho
djjusu't say why ho wants it , but Fred R.
Knldonborg , of Now York , who Is famous
as an artist caver of Ivory and ineer-
snhatirn , and who probably knows moro
about the latter article 'than anybody
dso in the country readily divined what
started him up.
"Ho has found n bed of kaolin.or china
clay , and thinks ho has struck a meer
schaum tnlno. Persons have been doing
that frequently in different parts of the
country , nnd In that way some of the fin
est nnd most valuable kaolin deposits
have bocn found. It is Ji very good thing
to have people looking out for anything
of value , for even If they don't get what
they nro after they are likely to catch
something else. But anybody can toll
very easily the difference between genu
ine meerschaum and kaolin or any other
clay. Wet a piece of meerschaum witli
your tongue , and then cut a
shaving off it with n sharp
knife. You will find that it curls up into
n regular shaving. Now try that
with a lump of clay , and you will sou
that all you cut off falls into dust. If you
have a microscope you can apply a still
more conclusive tost. Break a bit of
meerschaum , nnd under the microscope ,
its fracture will show that it is composed
of the most minutely atomic cockle fihclts
concelvublo , twisted and matted together
Into n solid mass. Nothing else looks
"But I should not be at all surprised if
meerschaum wcro to bo discovered somewhere -
whore In this country some day. Wo
have pretty much everything that is
found in any other part of the world.
Why , do you know , finer amber is dis
covered in tills country than comes from
the old world. I don't know where it is
found , but nomowhoro In Mexico , I be
lieve , and it is in largo , clear , flawless
pieces very often. There nro specimens
of amber m the Columbia college museum
taken from coal formations in this coun
try , and I have nn idea that our amber is
a soliliud and petrified petroleum. You
know that nobody has over rightly de
termined yet what amber is , although It
is supposed to be some kind of petrified
gum. Well , it stands to reason that if wo
have the amber we ought to have meer
schaum al o , or nature's design to
supply us with the best pipe material of
homo production would bo a failure.
But until we Und it wo will still have to
depend upon the same source of supply
that the world has had to rely upon
since the day of Pllnv , who knew about
ns much concerning this 'foam of the soa'
as wo do to-day.
"To answer the questions of your Oregon
gen correspondent : All the meerschaum
comas from a little place called Eskischia ,
in Asia Minor , whore it is found at a
depth of about llftv foot underground ;
but how it is found only the Turks who
find it Ifsow. These Turks arc very re
ligious Mohammedans , and an article of
their faith scorns to be the duty of killing
any Christians who como about there
asking questions concerning nicer-
chnums. They have kept up that prac
tice for so many centuries tnat they have
finally really made It a habit. They don't
oven lincourago their co-religionists in
impertinent curiosity about it. Mer
chants who deal in It , and live within
five mlles of whorn it is produced , have
never visited the mines. They arc a
philosophic people , and prefer living
rather than knowing. Whan the stuff
comes out of the ground it has much for-
oigu matter of some sort clinging to it ,
and mingling with parts of it. All that
is carefvlly cut away , leaving only the
pure white material , in the strangest ,
most irregular and fantastic shapes con
ceivable. As it Is trimmed with a sharp
knife , the workman rubs it with a thick
oily leaf that gives it a handsome polish
for the market. It Is not sold by weight ,
but by quantity , its value being deter
mined by its lightness nnd the size of tiio
piece * in which it is. It soils by the box ,
an arbitrary measure. The box is about
three fuel long , twelve inches wldo and
twenty inches high. The contents of one
box may bo worth only ifcW , and of an
other # 300. The former will consist of
perhaps 500 small pieces , while in the
latter will be only sixty or seventy.
"The consumption in the United States
amounts to about ono thousand boxes a
year. Six or eight years ago it reached
probably fifteen hundred , but the de
mand has fallen off one-third in consequence
quence of the decline in pipc-smaklng
or _ nt least the abandonment of the prac
tice by so many of these who could afford
to smoke mcorsohaum pipes.
'There is no duty on meerschaum.
Twice an attempt has been made to put
a duty upon it , but the importers have
succeeded on each occasion in demon
strating the injustice and inexpediency
of making it an exception to the law ex
empting crude materials from duty. The
business in jt lias fallen off a great deal
but there still is nnd always will bo suf
ficient demand for it to make it very well
worth any man's while to find an Ameri
can mine of it. That reminds mo that
the article thnt came much nearer to the
real meerschaum than any other thing I
have over socn thnt was not meerschaum
was found up in Vermont. I fancy that
it must be a kind of partly petrified wood.
It was very light , white , streaked with
darker similes , nnd had a fibrous grain ,
very different from meerschaum in that
"Meerschaum carving is not so good a
business now as it used to bo. A good
carver can earn from 918 to f20 a week ,
nnd in exceptional eases $25. The pay
ment ii general a weekly salary , and not
often by the piece. It would bo dilllciilt
to find any basis for payment by the
piece , us each bit of carving is n job ; by
itself. The artistic carver must be able
to see a design in the strange , fantastic
shape of each lump , and got it out so as
to utilize all that is possible of the mate
rial. The lump , for instance , would
give a largo and handsome bowl from
end ; hero would como out throe deer , the
bnok , with branching antlers , standing ,
ono dee standing and another lying
down ; foliage in the background on the
bowl ; gras.s underfoot , and hero a tree
stump. All that the carver will cut out
and finish handsomely in from two and a
half to throe hours ; the cost of his work
will bo about ? 1 , and the bowl will sell
for $3.50 at wholesale. What the retail
price will bo depends upon how much
the customer wants It. The finished
bowls arc dipped In boiled wax to fill up
the pores of the Interior so as to arrest
thu evaporation of the oil from the to
bacco and retain it nonr the surface ,
whuro it acquires the rich color for which
muorsehnum is famous "

London Correspondence Boston Adver
tiser : " \Vo are all influenced very much
by consideration of our own interests. "
This meaningful confession was made in
a notable speech by Mr. Chamberlain
ten yours ago , nnd ho has so faith-
Just acted up to it that it is evident that
ho intended U to bo the Chamberlain
motto that shall complete The coming
Chamberlain coronet. The political
earthquake now in progress lift * thrown

nothing queerer than the radical-whig-

Mr. Chnmborlaiu is one of these radi
cal dead levellers who inherited a fortune
equal to these of some dukes. It was
m ado in the screw trade , and the story of
how the smart free trader , Joseph ,
squashed all the small screw makers and
established the big Nottlofold & Cham
berlain monopoly is ono of the cutest
tricks in trade. Ho shall tell us ft Uttlo
story 'in his own words , taken
from n 'publio speech in Birmingham
"When I was in the ' screw tradi
( ho retired a few years ago nt the ago ol
forty , his share being 3,000.000) ) , my firm
made screws by mil of an American In
vention. At that time the Americans put
a duty of 100 per cent on screws , but in
spite of that my firm sent the screws
there In largo quantities. The result was
that the American manufacturers came
over to us and said.Vo nro making 100
per cent on capital ; If yon continue to
send screws to America wo. shall of
course bo obliged to reduce our prices.
That will shut you out. but it will reduce
our profits , which will not bu a good
thing for either of us. Lot ns therefore
make n bargain. WP will pay you so
much n year to sit still , and not send n
screw to America. ' Well , wo did so.and
my firm received a handsome income for
years from the American manufacturers.
Afterward the duties were increased ,
and so my firm was shut out of the mar

class friends out of work , but I must not
When he exchanged histrado in screws
for that in poliUcs.Mr. Chamberlain wont
in as model boss of a young men's de
bating society , then ho entered the town
council , and soonbeing rich nnd pushing ,
became mayor. At that time ho was a
strong republican , the friend and I believe -
lievo the chairman of Sir Charles Dilko
when ho was raising the devil by his lec
tures against the monarchy , whoso court-
plush livery ho afterwards donned with
the alacrity of a flunky.
Chamberlain was a thorough-going
republican , bold in desiring the downfall
of the throno. During his mayoralty the
prince of Wales made a grand state'vislt
to Birmingham. Chamberlain showed
himself so capital a courtier that Punch
honored him with a cartoon showing how
neatly tliu prince cut the claws of the
Birmingham republican lion.
Passing over a few common place
somersaults performed over mimlrv
policies , wo may view Chamberlain , the
republican , ns the red spectre in Glad
stone's cabinet. Ho was never a member
of the Inner circle , and felt mighty hoity-
toity as Harrington and thu oilier aristo
crats koot him at arm's length. When
in his ardor ho delighted the socialistic
by proclaiming that the rich ( always ex
cepting his noble self ) are "drones , who
toll not , neither do they spin , " ought to
pay "ransom" for being allowed to exist ,
and when he scared society by reminding
it how "the workers drive the drones
train thu liivea and they perish miserably
from thu violent pressure of their indig
nant follow subjects , " the time seemed
right for revolution , and wo began to
pictnra Oliver Cromwell Chamberlain
protector of poor England. Henry
George danced on his head for joy when
he Heard the pushing politician adopt his
the latest stop-ladder to notoriety by
declaring that "every man born into the
world , has a natural right to land. "
When Chamberlain was reminded by the
starving mob of out of work Birmingham
screw-makers , who shortly afterward
"interviewed" him at his place , that per
haps they had as good n right to a snack
out of other rich men's screws and hush
money , ho dismissed them "without a
scolding for their impertinence and with
out so much as u crust of broad and a
drink of ale.
Pining for new see-saws , Clinmberlain
next made ono out of poor Parnell. Ho
proposed to go over on a political crusade
to inhale Irish air. [ Ho had previously
kissed the blarney stone. ] Ho told his
London audience how villainous is
English rule in Ireland. "It is founded
on 30,000 bayonets. Irishmen cannot
lift a linger In any parochial , municipal
or educational work without being con
trolled by an English official , appointed
without a shade or shadow of representa
tive authority. " This was noble talk in
nn English radical , nnd yet spoken with
a purpose. The pushing politician had
lor years been aiming at standing in
Gladstone's shoos , lirst running the old
man down , and when that failed fawning
on him , and when that did not got him
Into favor ho went down to the mob and
bullied the Gladstonoitos until ho was
taken into thu cabinet to shut him up.
The latest trick was to jump on to Par-
noil's shoulders , and no become the high
est Irish liberator. As ho had approved
nil the Glndstonc-Fostor treatment of tlto
Irish party , including thn Imprisoning of
Paruell , Sexton and Dillon , the Irishmen
saw through the trick. The mayor of
Lavurick. on the proposal to welcome
ClmmbtTblnin to the famous city , strongly
objected , adding that Chamberlain's
language shows the rankest hypocrisy ,
nd has no meaning or sincerity. " Mr.
haniborlain's sudden patronage of Par-
ellism as suddenly ovnporatodjas within
three months ho denounced homo rule.
A Little Comedy or KrroM That Mndo
n Deacon liownonat.
The Now York Times reports a little
comedy of errors. It is follows :
Deacon William Richardson , the presi
dent of the Atlantic Avenue railroad , is
ono of the most dignified old gentlemen
in Brooklyn , and Ins snow-white hair
and board mark him as a patriarch. No
ono would suppose him to bo a young
man with rapid tastes nnd bad habits ,
uut , according to a story circulated about
the city yesterday , ho has lately given his
wife cause for anxiety. A young lady
rejoicing in the euphonious name of
Lucy was the cause of all the trouble ,
b'rom all accounts she is n resident of the
populous but wicked London , and when
the good deacon , Richardson , visited that
city a few weeks ago ho found this tele
gram waiting for film :
Meet me at the Langham hotel. LUCY.
The deacon professed to bo surprised ,
but Mrs. Richardson was more than sur
prised she was indignant. She de
nounced Lucy , and inspito of her fifty-
nine years , threatened her with dire pun-
i&hment. Rumor has it that thu deacon
caught some of the storm , but , however
that may bo , ho determined to find out
who Lucy was , nnd went to the corridor of
the Langham. For an hour he trod iho
tile flooring , a gloomy look settling
gradually over his face. The non-ap-
lionrancu of Lucy filled him with disap
pointment , for ho wished to see her
lodged in a station house.
During ono of his most sombre mo
ments the deacon was awakened by a
lilow on the shouldnr and started up to
lind himself face to face with General
lienjaniin F. Tracy , the counsel of the
Atlantic Avenue road , and ono of Brook
lyn's prominent men. As General Tracy
was supposed to bo 3,000 miles away , the
deacon was very glad to sco him , nnd his
pleasure soon drove ( lie clouds of doubt
and misgiving from his brow. But a sim-
| ) lo question from tliu general brought
them bucu in masses. This was the question
"Did you got my telegram * "
The good deacon nearly swore , so
angry w.is ho , but ho dually blurted out :
"Oh , bother your telegram ! What do
you think of that ? Ami he produced the
one signed "Lucy.1"
Portly General Tracy fairly shook
with laughter when he had mail the few
words , and his peals of laughter could be
leanl all over the big hotel. When ho
could regain his voice , ho asked. "Has
MM. R. seen this ? "
"Of course she has , "replied the dea
con , "moro's thn pity. "
For fullv live minutes General Tracy
could not keep his face straight enough
o toll hl $ story , but ho finally made his
Friend understand that thu telegraph operator -
orator hail mistaken "Tracy" for
"Lucy. " Nothing would satisfy the tloa
con but that the general should call on
Mrs. Richardson immediately and ux
niam thecaso to her. This was dunol , > ul
it required considerable itrgumuiu to
prove to tliat amiable lady that Iho , tw
old men were not putting up n job oc
llcro'i n Wet For n Oonil Htory.
Plttsburg Dispatch : A few days ago n
wcll.knon merchant on Sixth street ,
near Pomi avenue , was busy Fcrviug a
customer when nn elegantly droned nnd
pleasant looking young man strolled In
and nskcd for 11 private interview. Ho
was shown Into the proprietor's prlvuto
ollico , where introduced himself ns a
former employee of the Fort Wayne rail
road. The merchant failed to remember
him at first , but after n little further talk
he was convinced that he had known him
several years ago. when ho travelled a
great deal over the Forl Wnyno road.
Then the young man had him whore ho
wanted him , and calmly nskcd for a loan
of f 10 , oll'erlng to put tip Ids diamond
stud us security. Ilu wn in a tight place ,
but would be ablod to redeem the stud
the next day. The merchant
took the diamond to the win
dow nnd examined it carefully. It
looked all right , and ho concluded to let
the young man have the flO and retain
thu stud its collateral. The youth de
partedand the merchant waited patiently
for his return. But the days passed and
ho came not.- Neither did thu $10. Yes
terday the gentleman dropped Into a
jeweler's store to have the diamond tested
and gut an estimate on its value.
It was paito. The jeweler saidas they
we no friends , ho would give f 1.50 for it ,
but ho would lose money on it oven at
that prlco. The merchant didn't say A
word. He put thu bogus diamond deep
down in his vest poukut and sauntered
homo. Ho was in n melancholy
frame of mind. Along in the
afternoon , a friend , who lives ncross
the street , and who lias been studying
photography for some time , came in fo
show him his first effort with the Instan
taneous process. It was an excellent
picture , but it almost gave the merchant .
a fit of apoplexy , for it showed him nnd
his pleasant friend , thu bortowor , stand
ing in front of the window examining
the supposed diamond.
The merchant secured the picture , and
by showing it to his friends soon found
one who knew the young man. The
matter will bo placed in the hands of the
police , and the merchant says' the case
will be pushed to the limit.
