Lincoln'M Mayor and City Council
Itclitml tlio Hiirs.
Ma\or S.iwior , of Lincoln , together with
the eleven counclluicn convicted of contempt
in tlio United States district couit last week ,
nirived in the city jcstoidaj morning. The
whole party wcioin the best of humor , and
weie but little disposed to look upon the seri
ous side of the cause. To them the Jail hud
no unpleasant connections , and they
seemed to look upon the incarcera
tion as u piece of martjrdom that
would have its silver lining and
blight side In the sweet bjo and bt\y. At-
tiied in their Sunday-go-to-mccting clothes
and glossy high huts , the great combination
tooted It from the Huilington depot to he
ofllco of Marshal Hlei bower , where they'de
li voted themselves over to his lender mercies.
Their attorney , Hon. G. M. Lainbci ton , was
on hand to icccivo the delegation , whom he
advised 4iot to be in a bin ly U > seek their con-
incmcnt , as their bonds did not
xpiie until li ) o'clock midnight. The
: iiuletod municipal powers heeded the advice
given them , and made a bieak for the outside
to icgalo themselves with the pure-ami whole
some air nf Omaha and its elceteas. Evoiy
nan of tlio twelve took advantage of their
few remaining hours of fieedom and cnjo.ml
themselves in vaiious wnjs.
In the meantime Marshal Hicrbower busied
nniself pioparatory to tinning over the
twelve men to Jailer Miller. The latter w.is
ippiaisod by telephone of the intended visit
of the twelve , and was requested to make
It us comfoi table for them as
the lilies and icgulations of the
jail would penult. Hctween 3 and 3 o'clock
Muor Saw.or . and the eleven councilnien
"iad a consultation at the Milhml , and it was
: heio and then decided that Mr. Lambcrtson
should leave for Washington at once , lay the
matter bofoio the United States supicmo
couitnnd pioouio a hiibens coipus. Then the
whole paily filed out , joined the martial and
man lied to the jail , each man carrying in his
hands well filled satchels of clean
linen and other changes of wear-
lug nppnrol. They had come prepaied ,
evidently , with the expectation of a long
slope , and an apparent .knowledge ol the
slowness witli which a great body like the
supiemo court of the United States moves.
Duiiug tno intct im Jailer Miller had not
been idle , and when the distinguished paity
ariived ho hud things about the lesidenco
pait of the Jail pretty well "rid up" and
received his guests with his wonted aftability.
No dismal cells gicctcd them ; the 01 cak
ing on their hinges of the 10-
puKlvo grated doors did not ploico
their c.u , nor did the click of thu lock jar on
tholrnerves , if they hud gone to a hotel
they could lm\c not been tioatcd with a bet
tor reception , and the whole party was
oseoitod to the second stoiy of the living
upaitmonls of the Jail. Two huge looms ,
beautifully and coinioitably fuimshed , weie
assigned them , and they at oiico set
about making themselves acquainted
with their now home. . The looms aio nicely
hunted , and are furnished with u viqw to
Last night a In : repoi ter c.illed upon the

.sheiilT or two were with thorn , and wliilo a
great deal of liilaut\ prevailed it was of that
inotlonsivo kind and in no waj eontraiy to
tlio set and established rules of the Jail.
Minor tiuwvori onteiited himself perusmgtlio
contents of thn Hir : , and two or thieo
other of the gentlemen pored over the picture

ever , the majority whiled away their houis
of confinement pla.v ing cards , chcekcis and
other innocent and ugrcoab'o ' pastimes.

At picbcnt , antluacito coal , which ! > theonly
coal that is brought hcru Jti oiu Chicago , is

higher than it was a iear ago. This rni o in
the prieo is attributed to the freight

aio fifteen of thcso in the citywho tell gener

to enforce the law with regard
to selling liquors on tlmtday , would not have

no attention to the older. Of course , that
resolution cioos not destroy the offense
committed. The saloon men knew they wore
violating the law und that law should have
governed them in their act. Hut , It they
should plead by way of extenuation that
they ought to be absolved from the penalty of
bicnklng the law when the city council
openly encouraged the same , does it not
occur to you Unit the gravity of the offense
should bo lessened. Don't you think the
couiicllmcn who voted to adopt
that resolution should bo chniged

council wus actuated by a motive of
revenge upon the mu\or , but that icvenge

Mr. Webster' * Opinion on the License
City Attorney John L. Webster hns fur
nished Ma\or Hroatch with the following de
cision regarding the license question :
Hov. W. J. HKOVTCII , Miij or , Omnhu.
Dear Sir : Ueplying to .vour favor Inquiring
in > opinion as to thu light of the city tieas-
urcr to icccive n fractional pint of the * t,000
in payment of tlio annual license for the sale
of liquor and as to the right of persons to engage -
gage in the selling of liquors without first
having paid the full amount of the license
foci and having procured u license tliurcfor , I
have the honor to lepoit , that section 2 of the
compiled statutes of Nelnuskuol 1NW , page
ll. , makes It a criminal ofteuce
for any person to sell or give nwuv mult ,
spii ituous or vinous liquors or im.v intoxii ut-
ing dunks without hiivlng Hist complied
with life provisions of that net and having
obtained n liccnso as in that act set foith.
Under tne law no license can be obtained
untll4.bc full amount of the license fee shall
huvo been paid , and which in cities ot over
ten thousand population can not be loss than
M,000. No person is thercfoio ( entitled to a
license until the annual foes ahull huvo been
paid In full. Until such sum is paid und
license issued it is a criminal otTense to en
gage in the snle of Illinois.
My conclusions are , therefore , first , that
no person can lawfully engage in the selling
of liquor until ho has first obtained a license
therefor ; second , thcio is no authority to
issue the license lequired until thctlOIX ) shall
flist have been paid as u license fee ; thhd ,
ani oidinuncu of the city of Ouinha which
permits or provides that jiersons may engage
hi the selllngof liquor without having first
paid the license fee und having obtained thu
license provided by law , is in violation of
the .state law and be.umd the authmlti
vested in the city \ouneil and thoie-
foio such ordinance is illegal ; fourth , all
poisons who have paid into the city treasmy
n portion of the sum of money provided for
its a license fee and havotheieupon proceeded
to engage in the business of selling liquor
without having paid the full amount of the
license fee and without having obtained the
litensu by law required , mo guilty of u viola
tion of the state law und uro subject to its
penalties. JOHN' L. Whi.-.rnu ,

The icemen in this city have not yet com
menced to cut their supply lor next summer ,
the icason being that thcchanncl of the river
is still not fio/un. Last year the cutting did
not begin until about Chiistmas. Tlicie aie
now ns thcio were then eight dealers in the
commodity in the city who gaineied a crop of
nftout 75,000 tons. The o with the quantity
ut by brevveis and puckers incicased
the total to nearly 200,000 tons.
The luigest amount of ice v\as
stored by Hammond , who cut -lO.COO tons
which ho used In his immcnso packing
establishment. His house is situated on thu
west shore of Cut-Off lake , v , hero , this year
will also be erected two largo houses of equal
capacity by Swift und Armour for the ac
commodation of their big establishments.
The prii o of ice lust season ranged from ft
to $10 per ton , and it is not thought that it
will be any higher next Hummer.

Our big special sale of overcoats would cause a commotion , but we must confess we neyer an
ticipatedisuch a rush as we had all last week , and especially Saturday. Our 35 salesmen
were busy from morning till late at night , to wait on the throngs of customers that crowded
our store , and we regret that we were not better prepared , as even that large torce of sales
men was not sufficient to attend , to all. and a good many had to go away. Saturday's business
made big holes in our overcoat piles , but-we are not through yet. Over one hundred cases of
suits and overcoats from our great New York purchase , are still on the way and coming in
daily , and we propose to get rid of them as fast as they come in.
Last week we have convinced thousands of customers that they never bought overcoats
so cheap as we offered them. This week we will show how low good suits can be sold. Suits
that were made by one of the best houses in the country. This is the greatest opportunity
men of moderate means ever had to procure good first class garments at about one half the
real value , we cannot describe them all , but we mention a few of thalarger lots and which
are especially big bargains :
" 300 good heavy Cassimere Suits , warranted strictly all wool , lined with good heavy sorgo. No all wool suit of suoh
M"7C quality and such.make was over offered for less than $7 to 8. Our slaughter price is $4.75.
ftA Cft This is the price we have placed on about 200 fine black , warranted real worsted , Corkscrew Suits , some lined with
vOiUv s'lk ' serge , some with good double warp Italian , well gotten up. This will make a good dress suit for men of mdd-
ernte means , and will give good satisfaction. It is in every respect as good a suit as is sold by other houses for
$10 to $12. Our slaughter price is $6.50.
Q 7R ' 11S * ° couanis about 250 plain , double and twist , and silk mixed cassimeres , some flue cheviots , elegantly made
Oui I W and trimmed , every one worth $15.00 , and that is the price which other dealers would ask for them. Our slaughter
price is $9.75. >
Rfl eai'ty ° ° nne tailor made Suits , the choicest of the great purchase ; cassimeres , beautiful fancy worsteds and
i JU diagonals. The material is the product of some of the best mills in the country , and some imported. These suits
were manufactured for the finest city trade , and have been made up to sell at retail for from $18 to $25. Out
slaughter price is $13.50.
Several large lots of Pea Jackets and Vests , chinchillas , plush and astrachan , lined with fine cassimoro and Italian
goods , which are usually sold for $10 , $12 and § 18. Our slaughter price is J4.25 , $4.75 , tD.OO and $1175. A few extra fine im
ported astrachans with elegant satin lining , and fully worth 28 to i30 , we offer at $16.90.
We wish to call the attention of ladies to a small but especially attractive assortment of fine
children's overcoats , which fell into our hands with this great purchase. These are made of the !
best of material in Cassimere , Chinchilla and Astrachan , elegantly trimmed with fur and plush ,
and of exquisite designs. These garments were manufactured for the cream of city trade , and in I
every respect first class. There are only a few small lots of them , and as the sizes are somewhat
broken we have marked them at about one third their real value ,
We are daily in receiptof numerous mail orders from out of town parties , and wish to say that
we cheerfully send goods by express C. O. D. , with privilege of examining when parties are willing
to pay express charges , both ways in case goods are returned , and we require a deposit to cover
such charges. We sell goods with such a small margin of profit that we cannot afford to puy ex-
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
