Tuesday afternoon the Uni : published ex
clusively nn expose of nn attempted swind
ling opcriitlon In which the niimo of ono
Philip Hulfcr figured prominently us one of
the alleged linn conducting It. That same
tilght n young man culled ut thu lir. : oftlce
und aftcrstatlug that his niimo wan Philip
Hulfcr emphatically denied nil knowledge of
the scheme. Ho was closely cpicstloncd , und
notwlthstanoing the fnct that the Interroga
tion embarrassed him greatly , und that u
Kirat mnsa of circumstantial evidence pointed
to his connection with thu fraud , his denial
It now transpires that Hulfer's record Is n
most unsavory one , nnd Unit by two firms In
this cltv ut least ho Is considered
ft swindler nnd n nise.il of ilrst
magnitude. A rew | > rtcr of the
HIM : met Mr. G. M. narrow , ofV. . L , Pnriiito
At Co. , yesterday und from him lent nod
that Hulfer attempted to swindle that house
nnd ul.to D. M. Kleelc & Co. nnd U , L. Mc
Donald .t Co. , of St. Joseph , out of n largo
Bum of money , the total amount being ? tiIKHI.
According to Mr. Uarrow , Hulfer's history
IB as follows so fur us known to the houses
mentioned above , und us Mr. Uarrow la n
gentleman of undoubted veracity and eminent
respectability there can be little doubt that
llulfcr's denial published in this paper wus u
barefaced He. Hulfcr has twice failed in
business In the little city of Atkinson , Holt
county.Nebraskii.ut which pliicohoeonductcd
ft general storeiind both times under umisuul
circumstances. While fraud could not bo
proven In the first case , It was considered to
have been u. very shady deal. The second
"failure , " however , WHS tlio result of u deep
laid swindling scheme concocted by Hulfer ,
und this fact ho himself admitted in open
eourt at the August term of the Holt county
court held at O'Nell.
Of the Ilrst failure all that needs to bo said
Is that he "sold out1' to his brother nnd
this took place about one and one-half years
ago. A snort time after this ho opened an
other general store In Atkinson. The sales
men who make that territory forV. . L.
PurrQlo & Co. refused to sell him nnd Hulfer
Bent 11 personal request to Mr. Durrow , whom
lie had known for a long time , to come nnd
.sec him. Mr. Uarrow went und Hulfcr as
sured him that ho hud $11,000 in the b.inlc.
This statement was also made to D.M. Stocle
& Co. and McDonald & Co. , of St. Joseph ,
Mo. Hy tnis and other representations ho
managed to'obtain a stock from these three
firms valued at over WiOO. ( About thirty
days after this the Omaha linns were noti
fied by an attorney of Atkinson that Hulfer
had sold the entire stock to onu Hen Collins ,
of Marshulltowu , la. , the consideration being
Collins pave two notes in payment , one be
ing for fHK ) nnd the other for SiiOu. The Hrst
was paid. Heforc the second fell due Uulfer
was arrested on the charge of obtaining goods
under false pretenses and was taken to the
county Jail at O'Neil. He wus instantly re
leased on bail , Messrs Weeks , Sc Millard , of
that place , going on his bond. Hefore the
trial ciimc on the second note of $000 had be
come due and this Collins refused to pay.
Then Bulfer got angry with Collins
and went to the attonievs representing
the sxvmdlcd firms and offered them the
followine terms : If he ( Hulfer ) would
be promised immunity from punishment he
would turn state's evidence and show that
Collins was the rascal. This , owing to the
fact that Collins was a wealthy man , and
that there might be some technicality allow
ing Hulfcr to escape punishment , w.is agreed
to , and during the August term.Hulfcr stated
In ojion court that ho and Collins had con
spired together to defraud the firms from
whom they had bought goods. Judgments
were obtained against Collins , who gave his
r.otcs to the several firms , and gave bond for
their prompt payment.
The above facts are substantiated by
Messrs. D. M. Steclo & Co.
THE SWITCH OK DEATH.
Tlio Coroner Inquires ai to How It
AVas IjelX Open.
Yesterday nn inquest was held atDrcxo !
& Maul's by the coroner over the remains ol
M. C. ll.iggcrty , who died from Injuries re
ceived in the collision batwoou two engines
in the yards of the Union Pacific at thu Soutl
Omaha stock yards on last Tuesday night
Tlicro w.is a largo attendance of railroai
men , among them being the crew of engine
11.VJ , the ono into which the cast-bound
freight train had run , together with the ero\\
of that train. The facts of the accident ware
set forth in brief in the Hui : ot ycstcrduj
und were fully substantiated by the testl
inony adduced by the coroner. It was ad
milled that the switch , connecting the cast
bound track with the "lead , " by means o :
which the five tracks of the yard an
reached , was left open by Switchmar
Lilly , Who wa ? connected with the force o
engine J1IW. Lflfy was & now man on tin
road , having been with it but a few days. Hi
claimed that ho had been n railroad man fo
twelve years. Foreman Phillips of engiin
1161) ) crew te tified that ho had told Lilly ti
close the switch because it lead to the mail
track. At the tUuo the engines struck , Phil
lips was about ton car lengths away frou
11 .ID , having coupled tlio llvo cars to a strinj
of cm 8 which had been on the track for SOUK
time. Lilly , the switchman denied that h
hud been told by tlio foreman lo close th
switch mid that ho did not know tli.it it leai
on to u main track. ThU was contra
vcoted by Phillips' testimony n
above outlined. When the frcigh
ti'aln , coming cast , was entering ( .hi ; "lead , '
Peter Kelson , the engineer of iliJil , slioutci
to Lilly that no thought there was a trail
coining onto them , and immediately Lill ;
ran In thotllrcctlou of the open switch , am
She last Nelson saw of him was his swingini

to u place of safety and went through th
window naggertytho fireman remarked tils
that ho thought there was something comlii
down upon them , but bofoio ho could d

the lower limbs. When he was picked u
ho was lying on the coal on the tender , us i
the parts of thocnglne which had crushed hit
had separated and then Hung him where h
was found. The crew of llfi'J claim thai
whether or not Lilly was told to close th

pcciixlly after making the claim that ho ha
been a railroad man for twelve years. Lill
went to his room after the accident , and di
not show up again until lnt yesterday. Tli
verdict of the Jury is as follows :

Howard H. Wallace , the man arrested fi
complicity in the nmnufncturo of countcrfo
money in Council Hluft's , but against who
nothing could bo proven , confessed to tl
chief yesterday that ho was u deserti
from the United States army. Ho said 1
enlisted with the Twenty-second infantry
Lcavcnworth in IbSI and de.scrtcd at S.m
Fc , New Mexico , in July , IS1 :
Ho claimed that he was imluei
to desert by Prod Manning , who represent )
to him that ho had hit upon n way of mukli
counterfeit ton-dollar gold pieces , and th
there was n big fortune In it for both of the
if they could establish n safe rendezvous at
1 laboratory. Manning further informed hi
that to Insure the success of their ontm-pri
B llttlo ready cash would bo necessary , ai
wno entered into , tlio nejurlo
' . s
scheme with his whole noul. said he thought
ho could rniso ho requisite "stuff. " Accord
ingly ho deserted , went to Hook Island , 111. ,
obtained fUKI in cash coming to him from his
father's estate and returning joined Manning
and they at once begun to cast about them
for a suitable place to set up their counter
They first went Into the Indian territory ,
but It got too hot for them there and they oc
cupied a month or so canvassing the country
for u more Hccuro plndo to op
erate. Finally they lauded In Coun
cil Hluffa , and tenting a room on Wil
low avenue , settled down to work. Whether
they turned out any of the spurious coin Is
not known , but ills quite probable that they
did. Wallace , however , says that Manning ,
after repented trials , declared that his chem
icals would not work satisfactorily , and that
ho had certainly forgotten some highly es
sential Ingredient. On Tuesday of last week
Manning determined to make another attempt
to pioduco the coveted golden eagles , and ho
sent Wallace to this city to buy for him 11
half pint of lacquer , which ho used In encas
ing his moulds. Wallace came , made his pur
chase , and returned to the rendezvous at-
Council Hltlfts. Instead of finding his part
ner ho found that ho had vanished , and with
him all of the wearing apparel owned by both
of them that was worth anything , together
with the . ! ( ) Wallace had left
of his | ( X ) patrimony , both of
their trunks and all other portables
of value. Manning left a note for him , In
Which ho said ho regretted the necessity of a
separation but It could not bo helped. Ho
concluded his consolatory epistle in this way ,
"Jim" Wallace lias been sailing under the
alias of Jim Carroll- you are a pretty good
fellow , but so awfully mellow , so green and
so young that I will have to give you the
shake. You came within an ace of cooking
our geese at Fort Smith , and I feel
that if I remain In your immediate
vicinity ninny days longer , wo will both bo
looking nt checkered sunlight. I advni | > you
to reform , got an ax , and go out Into

To the Kditorof the Hic : : You are doubt

an extent in our city , that it has almost become
come mi epidemic , and us yet I can learn o !
no action being taken by our board of health
( if we have such a body ) to check the spreai
of such a terrible disease. Our papers con
tain death notices daily , with the usua
"friends invited , " and people attend funeral
without inquiring as to the cause of death
only to find too late that death resulted frou
malignant diphtheria. This is all wrong , am
the disease should I HI treated the same as Ir
eastern cities ; the doctors being compellei
( under heavy penalty ) to repoit every casi
to Iho board of health , or city physician
who immediately thoroughly disinfect tin
picmlscs and quarantine the house m ease o
the death of the patient. No public funer.i
is allowed , lu this way the disease can b
stamped out. instead of being dlsiumlnatci
us now permitted without any protest fioii

The circumstances attending the death of
young Novutny , which were published In last
Monday's HRK , are still fresh In the'mlnd of
the public. It wilt bo remembered that ho
fell from the Union Pacific bridge to the
bank of the river , was horribly mangled , and
from the effects of the Injuries died. Two
men who had been stealing a ride on an
engine shortly before the accident were
suspected of having pushixl him from thu
bridge with murderous Intent. 'These were
John Crelghtou and John Hrannon. They
disappeared that evening. The next day
they wrote to Mike Couway , president of the
Plumbers' union , as follows :
"I Just bought a paper and found that
those trainmen have accused Us of causing
Frank's ( Novatny's ) death. They know that
they do not toll the truth , as they made us
get off and Frank went first and told mo to
come and ho went down through , and 1 got
off with ono of the trainmen on the same
side Frank did , mid then we all went down
to find him , and he was all broke up and
dying , and wo wanted to have him curried
up and get a doctor and the conductor
.said ho would telephone for the
coroner , and both trainmen went ,
away und left us with Frank , and wo stayed
until Frank gave a gasp and we. thought him
dead , and did not want to bo kept us wit
nesses , as wo wanted to get to Kansas City
and thought the train men would tell the
truth. That is all I know , and I will turn back
from hero as soon us I mail this. Yours ,
Jon.v Ciiniomox and .1. HIIAXXON. "
Another letter was written in the office of
Dan Furrcll , Otenwood , sheriff of Mills
county , la. It is iilso addressed to Mr. Con-
way. It says among other things :
"Since I wrote the first letter wo gave our
selves up to the sheriff of Mills county. He
telephoned to the chief of police of Omaha ,
and would not hold us , so wo will try to make
Kansas City to night. Frank's friends knew
he had nn watch , and as wo were good
friends It would hardly bo likelv that wo
should cause his death. * * * It was
those train men who did it by causing us to
get oft. Hut if wo arc wanted , they will
know whereto find us. I wish you would let
the papers have this. "

ONE MORE CHANCE.
The unseasonable warm weather has left a few more Overcoats on our hands than we desire
to carryover into the new year , and in order to sell them right now , we have cut the prices all to
pieces. Commencing to-morrow we will offer our very finest Overcoats at prices heretofore asked
for medium qualities. The biggest cut we will make o our fur and plush trimmed goods. There
are not many of them , but we have a few very fine garments trimmed with good fur and silk plush.
We want to make a sweep with these goods and close them out before we take stock. We invite ,
those who have so far managed to get along with their old or light weight Over-coats , and whom ,
the open winter has kept back from buying a heavy one , to inspect these garments. They will be
surprised to see hpw little money it takes now to procure such an elegant Overcoat. This is really
a grand opportunity and the last chance this season.
In Men's Dress and Business Suits we have a beautiful stock the largest in the city and our
prices m are known to be by far the cheapest. Many fine suits have been marked away down in order
to reduce stock and we will save you fully 25 per cent if not more on every suit ,
The big trade we have had in Boys' Overcoats last week has broken up the sizes of several
lots ; , but we still have a fair assortment. The prices are such that we expect them to be cleaned
Our Hat Department is known to offer better hats for less money than any regular hat house
in the city. The fine Fur Derby's which we are selling for one dollar have made a name for us.
No other house sells a hat of equal quality for less than $2 or $2.5O. We have received several
new styes for the holidays. Our finest hats at $2.5O , $3 and $3.25 cannot be bought at any
other house for less than $3.50 , $4 and $5. We offer in this department a splendid line of Fur
Caps at just one-half their regular retail prices.
The beautiful and artistic display of Men's Furnishings in our large windows will give an
idea of the variety of goods we have and the r > rices we ask. We invite those who are puzzled
with the all-aborbing question , "What to give. " to look at our window and they will see what
we can offer in the way of presents for gentlemen. Sensible and thoughtful men prefer and
enjoy substantial Christmas gifts of this nature. There is a satisfaction in giving or receiving
a present that one can be seen wearing , a gilt that combines utility and beauty , and nowhere
else can you get such goods so cheap. Our popular system of selling goods at the lowest
prices will be continued during the holiday season. We have no fancy prices and those who- -
purchase of us can save enough on each purchase to buy a nice presen t for themselves.
Beginnin Monday we will present visitors at our store with a beautiful holiday souvenir ,
copies of which are displayed in our windows.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
