Jl. H. Hchbiml.of the Lincoln State Journal , thu representative of tlio Omuha linn.
They hud ridden nil night In tlio
Bunituous | car mentioned under tlio kindly
escort of Mr. Hull , mill were the rc'elplonts
of tlio generous hospitality of the H. & M.
which that gentleman bountifully dispensed.
'J'helr train had left this city nt 8 o'clock the
l > rcccdlngovcnliignnd they werodelegated for
the information of the public to meet the
fust train of the Hurllngton route on its llrnt
trip from Denver , anil ride in It until It hud
passed beyond the borders ol the Btute.
The nun wus still behind the hills and the
tilr was sharp und bracing. A wait of a few
minutes occurred in the little station mid
suddenly , a mlle to the westward , the golden
reflection of u locomotive headlight shot
nround u curve , and the train was sighted
rushing down tlio track with the rapidity
mid maJcMy belonging to u newly
created conqueror of both distance nnd time.
The train thundered past the gathered wait
ers on the platform , nnd then the application
nf the brnkrs brought sparks from the warm
wheels and the cars cumo to n stand. In
less than a mlnuto the party was
tin board nnd the liycr resumed
its journey to the metropolis of Illi
nois. This departure took place nt 7:15 : n.
in. , the engine being 11(1 ( , in charge of Hlrney.
K C. Sluhy being the conductor. Hehiml
tills fleet roller were two passenger coaches
mid the magnificent Pullman sleeper , Auck
land. Than this car no moro beautiful rail
road palace over left the Pullman works. On
board the latter was I' . S. Eustl.s , the 1:011-
crul passenger and ticket agent of the H. it
M. Ho had ridden from Denver , which
place the train had left on the
night previous ut 11:55 : o'clock. This
hour was the old schedule time ,
nnd the train had really lull that plaeo
on the old ' schedule , because the new
time card did not go into effect until lust
night ? H was intended , however , to make
the time of the new train and it was put on seas
as to get the new system in operation by the
dntn designated on the new card. The time
for leaving Denver is 10 o'clock p. 111. and the
train lust night loft there at the hour men
tioned. After leaving Denver , the ( Iyer was
pulled to McCook by engine 157 , with Engi
neer Kobiumm and Conductor C. M. Johnson.
It reached McCook at J > : ! 25 u. in. There u
hpcelal car containing J. 1C. Choato , assistant
superintendent of the Union Pacitie at Den
ver , with u party of frienda , was detached.
The train pulled out u few minutes
behind time. After leaving Indi.inolu be
hind tlio train flew lilong the vails
reaching Oxford , where iho party break-
lasted sumptuously nt u tame attended by n
maiden with u pair of hiuel eyes and a Mary
Anderson set of features , which , with the
viands were enjoyed for twenty-live minutes.
Again the train got under wuy , and when
lour miles out the engine broke nn eccentric ,
causing u delay of one hour and twenty-llvo
minutes. In this time train No. 0 , which
had left McCook ut 0 o'clock , overtook the
flyer and helped it a fraction of a inilo to
Mascott. where the assisting engine , 1(11 ( ,
with Albert Nolan in the cub , was substi
tuted , and again the journey was under
taken , with sixty-one miles to niuko up to
catch the tchedulo timo. The engine
Becmcd ciuil | to the tusk , yet the motion of
the train wus no slight that writing with ink
could easily huvo been indulged in. At
lanta was passed ilylng , nnd Iloldrogo , the
"muglo city , " was readied , where tlio
train was greeted by a host of | ieoplo , and
where it will bo met dally by the Cheyenuo
blccpor. Funk , Axtol , Mindcn , with dull :
'suggestions of the human , brute , Uichards
nnd that other brute Xhnmcrman , were
passed , also Hnrtwcll , and then
KoncsaW was attained , and hero a slight
rest was taken. On again to Hastings , where
u largo number of people welcomed it. Hero
it remained about three minutes , nnd it was
noticed that it was gradually making up for
Us delay. It started again and was gomg
out llko a shot when a Hii : ; newsboy , who
wus selling Saturday evening's paper , found
himself on board and feared to Jump oft.
With presence of mind ho coolly pulled the
cord nnd the train stopped instunter with its
pilot over the Kearney crossing. This ncces-
bitutcd a bucking up , which lost four minutes
more , nnd when it was discovered who was
the innocent cause of the delay the piescuco
of mind of the youngster was commended
nnd the success of his achievement provoked
much amusement In the party. Again the
loud was taken , this time toward Harvard ,
distant fifteen miles , and these wore spun
out at the rate of fifty-two miles an hour , the
spinning power being applied by engine 1W ( ,
Huniucl Suoll the engineer , the conductor being -
ing W. N. Hull. At Hustings D. E. Thomp
son , the assistant superintendent at Lincoln ,
was taken aboard and Clark , the well-known
city editor of the Gazette-Journal was ad
mitted to the journalistic and rail road
watchers. Harvard passed , Lincoln became
the goal and in reaching it Fairmont was the
only station stopped nt , Sarnnville , Button ,
Grafton , Exeter , Friend , Dorchester , Crete ,
Horks and Dentou being given but a passing
notice. Tlio train was duo nt the capital at
1 : ' p , m. , but it was 1 : to o'clockwhen the
iron steed wus detuehed to go to his stnll , and
the travelers with becoming dignity filed to
the depot eating room. They had ridden the
last ninoty-flvo miles in 115 minutes. At
Lincoln twenty-llvo minutes will , hereafter ,
bo allowed for dinner , nnd the rapid traveler
will avail himself of the opportunity , because
the spread , the result of the management of
Miss Tillio Fnrst , is not excelled in any simi
lar place in tills country. Hero engine 10-J ,
tinder the charge of Hob Smith , was attached
to the train to draw it to Pacilio Junction in
Iowa , nnd the sleeper , Hivortoa was attached ,
giving accommodation to Lincoln passengers.
Thus equipped , and with Its load of satisfied
experts , the train pulled out at 1:0-J ! : o'clock ,
twelve minutes behind time , a few minutes
having been stolen from the allowance
on the schedule for n stop. Now , but liftv-
four miles hud to bo traversed before Omaha
would bo reached , nnd ono hour and twenty-
eight minutes remained in which to cover
them. There was no doubt that the feat
would bo accomplished. The engine braced
itself nobly for the work. Past waltzing
houses and barns and whirling fields ; past
motionless bunches of cattlohuddled together
to break the chilling breeze ; past dreary
patches of riotous corn-stalks , relentlessly
abandoned by the rigors of the season ; past
frowsy elevators which' in nowlso seemed
bursting with goldou grain ; past frightened
. teams religiously conveying devout farmers
nnd their families homo from morning wor
ship ; past cra/y windmills violently exercis
ing to keen up circulation in the blusts ; past
llttlo stations with gaping crowds of village
folk ; past country schools nnd country
churches ; past stock pens , yellow banks ,
, piles of lumber , over trestles , through cuts
nnd by Immense manufacturing establish
ments und the train is in Omaha. Mr. Eus-
tis stepped down from the platform with
watch In hund. remarking , "With four min
utes to SPUIV , too. "
Hero there was a watt of half an hour , and
the tram ut ilM.1 o'clock started for Chicago ,
having previously taken on the dining cur
"Windsor , nnd a sleeper of Omnhnnn. Hero
wcro taken on board John Duggun , tho'ablo
nnd genial superintendent of the Iowa divi
sion of the Chicago , Hurllngton & Quincy.
uud M , M. Marshal , the successful general
agent of the "Q" system in Council Hluffs.
Mr , Kustls hero loft the train with the
thanks of the journalists for his kindly
courtesy , but Mr. Hall remained. A few
in I las out the invited guests took
scuts ill the dining car , u glistening
palace In silver , cut-glass and whitest linen ,
with n dozen tables set in u most Inviting
manner. This was in Charge of W. C. Colo-
i , ouo of the handsomest luen'in the ser
, and , an was evinced by the viands which
answered thu 11 he/a 1 orders of the guests.

competent in his business. The latter
wore discussed as the train flew
nround the curves to Pluttsmouth ,
rtilch it reached In forty minutes , while
rosslng the bridge nnd InW ) Iowa until Pa-
ilk- Junction was reached. Here , Mr. Pugh ,
ho general agent of the "Q" system nt Pa-
Hie Junction joined tlio party which rode to
iustlngs , where It met the fast malt train
'rom ' the east , on which , at 7HO : o'clock hut

Jctiirning from the east , it readies
Omaha ut 5:15 : o'clock In the morning ,
il Denver at 10 o'clock the same
venlng. This enables a traveler to
mmediatdy retire to rest and be fresh for thn next day. Tills is certainly a
ommend.iblo feature , and the ni-hievemu'nt
jy which it has boon accomplished is by no
neans the greatest that may bo done , even
.vithout . in any uiiy.incurrlng risk of danger
, n life or property. The speed of yesterday
, vas forced nnd yet it was absolutely so much
o that , If need be , u couple of hours more
nay bo taken off the schedule.
To accommodate the local traflio between
Jhlcago and McCook , n third train was yes-
.crdny put on thu-road. It will leave McCook
iit ( "o'clock In the morning , stopping at the
i > rincMl ! | stations , reaching Hustings ut 11:18 :

eaves Omaha at S o'clock in the evening
und stops at the more important stations.
Aside from tno benefit of the fast train to
ho traveling world , it is destined to bring
, ho people of n lurge section of tlio state into
: lo er connection with the outside world by
neans of the dailies of this city. Hereafter
ho Omaha HII : : will bo sold on the streets of
jincoln by 7:15 : o'clock in the
uornlng und delivered to its sub
scribers before 8iO : ! o'clock. At Lincoln
close connections will bo made , which will
iring the Hr.i : to its thousands of readers in
Reward , York , Loup Citv , Grand
Island , Aurora , Central City , Ord ,
CJrceley and n hundred other placc.s
almost before the noon. There
s no doubt that the enterprise of the H. &
M. will bo appreciated , and that the iiccom-
nodation afforded by the train , as well as the
ocal ono also referred to , will bo found of
; rcat value to our people. These trains uro
} qulppcd with finest cars , nnd the attendants
nnd ofllcers uro gentlemanly and accommo
dating. This may bo most truthfully said of
Mr. Eust is. as also of Mr. Hall. The latter
gentleman left nothing undone in his atten
tion to the press representatives , whoso trip
wns ono of unalloyed pleasure.

liomlsniuii Flanuci1Flmln His Maii In
n MlHMMiri Town.
Jim Flannery has captured Sam Steven
son , the alleged ravisher of Miss Lulu Epsey.
Stevenson was fonnd ut the little town of
Birmingham , about fifteen miles from Kan
sas City , and reached Omaha with his captor
yesterday morning.- The story of the pur
suit of the fugitive Is an interesting one.
About a week ago Flannery , who was ono of
Stevenson's bondsmen , and who had $1,01)0 )
at stake , was doputi/cd by Shoi-ift Coburn to
go to Colorado springs to take Stevenson
into custody , it having been telegraphed hero
that ho had been captured nt that place.
\rrlving at Colorado Springs , Flannery
found , to his inllnlte disgust , that
ofllcers had caged the wrong man.
Hut he determined not to give up tlio chase
and next , went to Denver. In u saloon lit
that place ho accidentally met a man who
spoke of meeting some Omaha men who
wore bricklayers at Kansas City. Flannery
was immediately on the alert , and affecting
to 1)0 confidential with the fellow , told him
that ho was looking for a cousin , giving a de
scription of Stevenson , who was a bricklayer.
Ho further said that his cousin was in trouble
nnd ho was trying to hunt hini up to render
him assistance. This story , flavored with
plenty of'good whisky , hod the effect of
drawing out a full description of Stevenson
and his whereabouts from the stranger , and
Flannery started post haste for Kansas < _ .ity.
Stevenson , who bad been stopping at the
Pontagraph house , had left , but tlio
proprietor , who happened to bo
un old friend of Flanucry's , told
him that the fugitive could bo found at
Hirminghnm , where he wns passing under tlio
assumed name of .luck Fuller. On his way
to that hamlet Flauupry foil in with tlio coroner
ner of the county , and offered him $10 to as
sist in the arrest. This the coroner readily
assented to do , promising to make the arresl
himself provided Flannery let him tuko his
revolver , and would stand by ready to lend a
helping hand. AH the two approached the
house where Stcvou&ou was ut dinner tlio
coroner weakened , nnd , handing back the
weapon to Flannury , nskod him to go ahead
Stopping Inside tlio door the deputy foum
several men present , in the midst of whom
sat Stevenson.
"Well , Sam , 1'vo coiuo after you , " said
Flnuncj-y , at the same time covering bin
with his revolver. The fugitive stared at his
bondsman in astonishment , turning alter
nately red und white , and managed to stain
IIHT out :
"Well , you'll let mo finish my dinner
won't you f"
This was readily granted , but It was notlcei
that his appetite suddenly failed nnd the rest
of his dinner was loft untouched. Tlio mei
present wcro disposed to take the part of the
prisoner , but the deputy "had the drop"oi
them , and kept his act vantage until ho got the
handcuffs on Sam und hurried him over to
the depot. Ho was followed by the crowd
but the glitter of his "aim" seemed to imvo
a subduing effect on them and mi hour or so
later lo : got on board the train.
Flannery and his prisoner arrived in Omaha
at ( i ; 0 yesterday morning. The latter wa
turned over to Jailer Miller. The only ex
cuse that Stovcnson offers for his Might i
that , although Innocent , he wus afraid ho wa
going to bo convicted anyway.

Of our customers , after seeing the incomparable bargains we offered during the last two
weeks express astonishment at the prices. The secret is simply this. The warm weather and
late season have had a very depressing effect upon the wholesale trade. Manufacturers are
overstocked and discouraged and the same goods which a few weeks ago they intended and
expected should bring them a fair profit , they are now ready to sacrifice at almost any price.
This is the chance for the retailer. It is merely a question of who can use the quantities. The
firm that does a large business can take advantage of such opportunities. We are in this hap
py position. Our ample resources enables us to buy in enormous quantities for cash ; we sell
on same terms and the quick return of the money makes the smallest profit satisfactory. Any
one can seethe torce of these remarks by coming and pricing our goods.
Another lot of those fine Chinchilla Satin Lined Overcoats at $14.50. The first lot sold so quick that during
the past few days we had lo disappoint many customers , who called for that coat. * We are now ploasnd to say that wo have
received another supply of these same coats , only with this difieionce , that the first ones were velvet piped while these open
ed now are with corded edges ; otherwise in every respect the same first class garment , the like of which was never offered
for less than twice what we ask for it , $14.50.
Another lot of Overcoats to which wo call attention is a splendid Shetland , lined with double warp Italian satin
sleeve lining , silk velvet colar and corded edge. These AVO have in blue and Oxford colors , sixes ( U5 to 38. It is an elegant
coat for a young man , very nobby and of splendid cut. Wo offer it at $3.90 and guarantee the real retail value of it to bo
at least 815.
In Single Pants , we make for this week the following remarkable offers :
One lot strictly all wool , heavy winter weight , grey striped Cassimere Pants , well made at $1.50 , fully worth $3.
Ono lot heavy all wool Fine Cassimere Pants , in dark neat striped patterns at $2.1O , worth $4
One lot very line silk mixed Cassimere Pants at $3.5O , worth $5.50.
One lot of elegant Worsted Goods , in choice patterns , at $3.90. These last are equal to any custom-made pants and
have never been offered for less than $6 to $7.
Remember that in our Boys'and Children's department can be found suits and overcoats at
about one half their real value and for which we challenge comparison.
In our Hat and Cap department , we offer a large assortment of fur and other winter caps , far
below the prices of others. Genuine imported Scotch caps , high crown , .at 35c ; sold everywhere
at 60c to 75c. Good heavy knit caps , turban style , men's and boys' sizes at 30c. Jersey caps ,
silk lined , men's and boys' sizes at 4Oc , which cannot be bought elsewhere for less than 75c to $1.
In our Glove department , we carry the largest assortment of winter gloves and mitts and offer
some big drives.
Good heavy knit wool mitts , men's sizes 2Oc , boys' sizes 15c.
Very heavy best fulled wool mitts at 4Oc and 45c ; sold by other dealers for 75c.
Good Iamb lined kid gloves at 5Oc , which would be cheap at $1.
Good fur top gloves at 50c , worth 75c.
