> Biibbnth yesterday In nn cnilcuvor to ubldo
' by the commnnds of the Great Creator Issued -
sued some years ago regarding "Let there bo
, light. " In the primitive and by-gono days of
these orders thcro was no Intricate
* machinery , damaged nnd warped by flre
to combat the Ingenuity and patience of man ,
and consequently the mutter of bringing
forth light was then much easier
accomplished , as will bo verified by
the gas company. Saturday's flro
demoralized the plant on Eleventh
street , and shut oft the supply for the street
lamps and the patrons of the company , for
a few hours on Saturday night the company
tried diligently to furnish the illuminate , but
without avail nnd long before midnight gave
up the task. No time was lost In repairing
the damage , and long before the charred and
blackened interior of the works hud ceased
steaming nnd smoking a small
tinny of men were put to work
on the bent iintl broken pipes and lire
scorched apparatus. The men worked with
a will throughout the night and all day yes
terday with the expectation that the furnaces
could be lighted mid the gas again turned on
into the mains. Hut the task was beyond
their best energies and when the shades of
night began to gather It found the city with
out a supply of the illuminating commodity ,
and never before in the history of Omaha
have candles met with such a profuse exhibi
tion of reverence and eoul oil deemed a pretty
good light after all.
Hy no means , however , was the city left In
total darkness , The elcctrie and Incandescent
lights came to a partial roHcue , and where
they were in use lighted up the gloom as It
were. Churches , hotels and places of amuse
ment were greatly embarrassed. The I'uxlon
proprietors being possessors of their own
electric light plant experienced no difficulty
in lighting up the rotunda nnd dining room
of the building , but when it came tc
furnishing a glim for the rooms of
their guests considerable trouble was
experienced. Tallow candles were resorted
to , and as each guest stepped up to the office
desk to get his key ho was handed u candle
with instructions how to use It. Many laugh'
able remarks were exchanged , and the
wicked and story telling drummer took ad
vantage of the occasion to reel off a yarn. It
Is understood that the Paxton proprietors hv
tend to fortify themselves against future ac
cidents of this description by extending their
electric lights to every room in the house.
The Mlllnrd proprietors did everything ir
their power to overbalance the annoyance ,
nnd succeeded pretty well. As Clerk Duven
ixjrt refused to loan his diamond for a head
light In the dining room two strong and pow
erful electric lights were put in , nnd unothei
located in the rotunda. The guests bad tt
get along with candles in their rooms. Can
dies wore also used at the Arcade , Windsor
Merchants and the other hotels.
In business places where gas was usct
solely , the proprietois took prccau
lions to locate candles am
lamps on the shelves as u guard ngainsi
burglars nnd stationed their clerks in tlu
stores to wait upon nocturnal customers am
'welcome them with u dose of cold lead if the

Association V. M. C. A.
At the afternoon services of the Young
Men's ' Christian association yesterday after
noon reports were read from the ofnVors of
the International association. Figurewcro
produced showing the organization to be rap
idly growing throughout the United States
and Canada , and an unprecedented increase
in membership during the past year. To
keep pace with the work additional
secretaries have been found necessary ,
and it now requires the whom
tlmo of foiutcen to do the work
accomplished by one a fewycais ago. The
labors of the International board requires the
outlay of a largo sum of money , which Is
contributed by the Vandorbilts , of New
York : Wnnnamukcr , of Philadelphia ; Mc-
Cormlclc and mother , of Chicago , and others
throughout the country in $1XH ( ) contribu
tions annually , besides amounts subscribed
by the members and friends of local organi
sations. Yesterday $15 was collected at the
services and the secretary has enough prom
ised from business men to swell the amount

A Valuable Invent Ion.
Charles J. Beckimm , of Council
Bluffs , In. , him completed a 550 foot ,
three-rail tubular fouco for Mr. .Lllu h ,
city treasurer , corner of Arbor and
South Twelfth streets ; a 180 foot fence
of the same kind for Mr. Michael Dee ,
corner of KluvoiithmulCnstellnrstreels ;
also a 111 foot two-rail fence for Mr. Dee
at the South Omaha cemetery. They
all have the patent "Locking
Bracket. " By the use of this device
which is Mr. Becknum's own patent
on any kind of fence , picket bar or pas
pipe , any panel can bo readily removed
and firmly replaced again , or' the entire
fence moved to home other place with
out damage , as the bracket protects the
end of the rail where it joins the po t.
This protection prevents rotting of a
wooden rail and gives the advantage of
putting the full btrongth of the rail in
side the bracket. No nails are used ,
therefore , no split rails where they join
the post. Address C. J. Bookman , 728

HAULING DOWN THE FLAG.
A Demonstration Canned by an An-
A couple of anarchists living on Twenty-
sixth street , near Harris ft Fisher's packing
house , elevated on their shanty yesterday n
red ilag , draped with crape , In mourning foi
the four executed anarchists. The flag had
been up but a short time when a largo crowd
gathered , mainly toughs , who began to make
preparations to raid the house with brick
bats and clubs. Some of the more sober-
minded ones telephoned to tbo police station
about tbo impending trouble , and the patrol
wagon , with a squad of six policemen , was
sent to the scone. On arriving on the spot
the officers determined that the best way to
avoid the threatened row was to remove the
cause. Accordingly they climbed to the top
of the house and took down the crimson
rag , umld the loud cheering ol
tbo crowd. For a few moments
their delight over the supposed harmony ol
sentiment of the police caused them to act
more like madmen than rational beings , and
they almost trampled each other under foot
in their efforts to rush forward to aid in the
arrest of the anarchists. It was with diffi
culty that the police finally drove the crowd
back. When it was discovered thcro were
to be no arrests , the disgust of the would-be
mobbcrs was expressed in the most emphatic
terms , and was a source of great amusement
to tbo police. The red flag was taken to the
police station and stored among the relics.
