Tlie Having of Northwest Cattle Hlilp-
pen who Slaughter In Omaha.
A HEE rciwrtcr last evening met Mr. W. C.
B. Allen , live stock agent of the Union Pa
cific railway , at the Paxton , Just in from the
northwest , and inquired as to the condition of
the live stock interests on the western cattle
"My territory , " replied Mr. Allen , "cm-
braces the Pacific Northwestern from Wy
oming to Oregon , and much the same condi
tions exist there as elsewhere on the cattle
ranges. Largo losses occurred during the
past winter in many sections and there is no
longer any effort to disgulso the fact. Tliu
nhlpmeiits show n material decrease but that
Is not the worst feature. The calf crop , the
jiast season , and for the season to conic , will
bo the lightest for many years. "
"What about prices ! "
" down to bedrock
"Why , they uro
rock , ono would naturally think , Judg
ing from the markets the past few days ,
especially as the receipts of range cattle
must soon let up In a large degree.
Omaha with its largo ( lacking houses , has
been a great benefit to the far west , ns our
Idaho and Oregon shippers claim that they
Have from $3.00 to W.OO per head in selling in
South Omaha Instead of Chicago. This is
owing to the saving in freight and shrinkage
on sjock. Omaha should push her claims as
a market and , above all things , push her in
dustry and manufactures if she wishes to
keep up the present ratio of progress.
The now northwest , including Idaho , Ore
gon. Washington and Montana , is a valuable
field for her commerce to ex
pand in. Salt Lake is now
on the eve of a substantial boom. The whole
Paciilo coast is developing wonderfully from
San Diego to Puget Sound. Alaska is also
attracting a largo share of speculation and
travel. Overland travel and tratllc never was
greater than to-day. Ono of the factors in
this now development Is the pioneer road , the
Union Pacific , and a second transcontinental
train is now necessary to supply adequate
accommodations for the through travel.
Next week the National Cattle convention
nt Kansas City begins , opening on the iilst.
I shall leave foe Idaho to-night and return to
that meeting. Hero is an opportunity for
Omaha to secure the next annual session
which her citbons ought not to neglect.
"Yes , Omaha has improved and I am
always proud of the tlvo years spent ns secre
tary of your board of trade in trying to lay
the foundations of her prosperity. "
In the Wrong Pew.
OSIAIIA , Neb. , Oct. 20. To the Editor of
the Bun : I should think that the heart of
every loyal man or woman in this city would
rebel against the treasonable utterances of
Hov. A. W. Lamar , pastor of the First Bap
tist church , in an address delivered by him
nt a meeting held under the auspices of the
Metropolitan club at the Tabernacle Congre
gational church on Sunday afternoon.
In this address , if correctly quoted in the
llcbubllrun , issue of October" ! , Mr. Lamar
nays : "I am a southerner myself ; a full-
blooded one. God bless the south. I am a
Houthornur and oven to the soldier core , and
I would light Unit war right over again at
any time. "
Such bitter rebel sentiments as these , in
iny opinion , do not tend to strengthen Mr.
Lamar either with his congregation or with
the loyal people who are the majority iu
Omaha , and if thcso are his sentiments , as
his expressions used would scorn to indicate ,
ho will probably find the south a raoro con
genial place for his health.
The Metropolitan club certainly will not
find that the prohibition cause will bo ma
terially strengthened in this city through the
medium of those who arc in sympathy with
the "lost cause" and its adherents.
For False Pretense.
On the 19th of October , John Wucthrlch
decided that ho would engage iu the saloon
business. Kcmombcring that the city fath
ers demand (1,000 from all dispensers of in
toxicants , Mr. Wucthrlch turned his foot
steps toward the county court house and had
n short consultation with City Treasurer
Hush , which resulted In the exchange of two
pieces of paper. Mr. Wucthrich lecclved u
document setting forth that ho was entitled
to soil as much "tanglo foot" ns ho chose and
Mr. Hush became possessor of a small slip
with the following legend in plain.characters
written upon it :
OMAHA , Nub. , Oct. 10,1SS7.
Oinalm National Bank :
Pay to order of John Hush two hundred
From Mr. Hush's affidavit , which was read
to Mr. Wucthrich in the police court yesterday
nftornoon , this check was presented and pay
ment refused , inasmuch as Mr. Wucthrich
had "no funds" in the Omaha National bank.
Mr. Wucthrich consequently was arrested ,
charged with obtaining property under false
pretenses and at this writing is behind the
Lars at the police station , whlln n messenger
boy is delivering sundry notes signed John
Wuethrichto various parties , asking them to
como and bond themselves in the sum ol
$1IXX ) , in order that ho may return to the
bosom of his family.

aged twcnty-flve years , died of brain fever ,
in St. Joseph's hospital , of which ho had
been an Intnato but a short time. Ho had
been employed by T. Haley , n railroad con

South Omaha. The deceased lias friends
and relations in Chicago , ono of whom , Mrs.
P. O'Donnell , has been telegraphed concern
ing his death. The remains are now at Bar

In Union , Not Much Strength.
The Union club , which was formed some
time ago , as the successor of the Canadian-
American club , and which opened its rooms
on Fifteenth street opposite the opera house ,
has ceased to exist. It failed early after the
reorganization , and the burden of supporting
it fell upon the shoulders of n few over
worked men. As u consequence it fell into
debt , and among the creditors arc the owners
of the rooms , who have sued for $ Mi.73. !
Jewey & Stone have brought suit for&00 !
or turniture sold.
Mttlc Dance'H Vuuiiilon.
Little Dance , a full-blooded Ponca Indian ,
it joyed the hospitality of the central police
tation last night , not as an inmate of a cell ,
imt as the guest of the boys. Little Dance
, ' i on a thirty days' leave oC absence from his
'cscrvntion ' in Idaho , and has come to Ne-
jraska to visit brethren of the Omaha tribe ,
ivitH whom ho is friendly. He bears a letter
) f introduction from K. C. Osuornc , the In-
linn agent , who speaks of him in the high
est terms , as one of the few hard-working
PiiNliIng the Work.
The superintendent of the waterworks re-
) orts that he is pushing forward all work as
rapidly as possible. Ho has an extra largo
'orco at work and hopes to complete every-
hing before winter actually sets in. The
'emulation for the power house at Florence
is well under way and the grading is nearly
ilnished. The pipes are being extended to
Swift's packing house in South Omaha and n
'cw days more of pleasant weather will see
hat work finished.
His Arm Crushed.
Hem Hopkins , a switchman in the upper
Union Pacific yards , had his left arm crushed
last night , and was removed to St. Joseph's
hospital. Ho was caught between two Union
line cars belonging to the Pennsylvania com
pany. Those cars are equipped with cast
Iron bumpers and are merely used to protect
the draft timbers. They are considered very
ilangcrotis by railroad men and bear the nick-
mine of "man killers. "
Kntlicrford Fined and Appeals.
J. G. Rutherford , whoso case of larceny as
bailee has been hanging flro in the police
court for several days , was finally tried again
yesterday before Judge Berka and fined $20

that ho had illegally kept ? 'W belonging to
Floran Johnson , but instead of thanking his
stars that Judge Bcrka let him oil so easy ,
ho has appealed his case to the district court.

From Mrs. Ella Pearson , superintendent of
Jail and prison work , number of visits made

479 , testlments 18 , requests for prayer 87 ,
visits made in behalf of prisoners 5 , suits of

Mrs. G. W. Clark , supetlntendcnt of evangel
istic work , reports number of calls made upon
unfortunate girls 20 , number of gospel meet
ings held 19 , at several of which was fortun
ately present with us our national superintend
ent of this department , Mrs. Anna Palmer of
Iowa , adding thereby greatly to the
Interest and profit of these oc
casions. Mrs. W. K. Potter , superintendent
of Juvenile work , willupon recommendation of
our national superintendent so to do , and re
alizing that "tho child of to-day Is the man
of to-morrow" enter soon upon a reorganiza
tion of the children into so-called "loyal
temperance legions. " The recommendation
of our dearly loved national president. Miss
Frances E. Willard , that the days of Novem
ber 13 and 13 , ensuing , be devoted by all
unions throughout the world to prayer for
the growth and universal diffusion of all
forms of temperance work , meets with the
warmest approval of this union , and its
action will be governed thereby. Believing ,
as wo do , that such an office as police matron
is ono of peculiarly urgent need , It Is deter
mined by our union to make all proper effort
towards accomplishment of this object. Also
that pending completion at Mlllford of the
house for unfortunate girls ( an appropriation
for which , It will bo remembered , was made
by our legislature at its last session ) our
active co-operation bo pledged to Mrs. Clark ,
our state superintendent of social purity , in
her endeavor to secure a temporary place of
refuge for such as , In the meantime , may
signify a desire to escape from their
present oathsomo surroundings. Workamong
the Chinese residents of our city , under the
Buperintcndcncy of Mrs. A. P. Wood is ,
after a vacation through the hot season ,
again resumed but much impeded , wo regret
to say , for want of teachers , ono of whom
being required for each scholar , owing to the
peculiar system employed. Double the
number wo now have would bo found In our
school if teachers could bo had. "Where are
the reapers ) " The warm congratulations of
our friends , we know will bo extended to us
upon learning , as hero they may , the fact
that , after the no small measure of distress
occasioned us on account of our previous
financial embarrassment. Wo arc to-day
thrnks , under God , to a confiding and gen-
rrous public in possessing not only our
headquarters building free of all encum
brance , but also of a lightness of heart that
will enable us to work yet more effectively
in the future. Mrs. Dr. J. C. Denise , our
treasurer , makes the following report of do

Outline of llio Work Intended by Tliia
Tills is now a legitimately incorporated in
stitution. Article live of its constitution
states the object of the association to bo
"Tho temporal , moral anil religious welfare
of women and children , and shall afford pro
tection and assistance to these in need until
permanent homes and means of support can
bo secured. " In furtherance of this work
the dispensing of public charities to the
needy lias been committed tothis association.
They liavo at 2T18 IJurt street n homo for
friendless children and aged ladles , and have
hired ti double house on Dodge street as a
homo for young working women. It has bo-
omo an accepted necessity , in all Christian
t'lids , that there should bo associations for
young men , and seine cities have nobly and
wisely met the more imperative necessity of
homes for young working ladies. In this ,
our central mid national city of Omaha ,
where so many young men are
so constantly coming , our citizens
should bo fr.lly aware of the fact
that very many young women are coming
here , and uro needed hero , to fill the varied
business demands for their services. As
strangers in our city they find themselves
more severely pressed for anv respectable
boarding house than oven young men. And
young iemalcs are even more in need of
home surroundings than young men.
To meet this humane necessity in their behalf -
half the Women's Christian association is
now soliciting the funds necessary to pay for
the furnishing of this now homo which they
have opened , and to meet , incidental ox-
pcnses incurred for Us beginning. It will
not bo strictly u charity institution , for its
occupants will pay a specified sum weekly ,
nnd it will in time bo self-supporting so that
In future growth of the city the association
will bo able to furnish a homo for hundreds.
In time there will bo a library , papers ,
magazines , music and various modes of en
tertainment adopted , which will meet the so
cial wants of these young ladles , and afford
to them something of the bencllccnt blessing
of homo protection.
The object Is worthy the support of our
citizens , and the names of the ladies who
have charge of the work is a perfect guaran
tee that contributions made to this object
will bo a lasting honor to our citizens. "Will

Of customers in our atore every day tell the story of the business we are
doing. We are determined to keep it up , and the more the public favor
ns with their patronage , the more will we show them that we appre
ciate this confidence , and will strive to retain it. Just now Overcoats
are in great demand , and are going off like hot cakes. The styles and
prices take. But as fast as the piles are disappearing from the counters
they are replenished by new and choice arrivals , which our buyer is
daily sending us from the east. We have new styles to show everyday ,
and the prices we mark them at must be very tempting , as the people
buy them so quick. Evidently there must be a great difference between
our prices and those of other houses.
Other departments that are booming are Gloves , Underwear and Ho _
siery. Our corner window this week gives you a small idea of what we
are doing in the latter. Where could you get such a good scarlet all
wool shirts and drawers at 45c each , or such all wool seamless socks at
IScapair ? You would have to pay about double the money for such
