Secretary Sutton on O'Connor Power.
LINCOLN , Jan. 2. [ Spoci.il Telegram to
the UCK. ] John P. Sutton , secretary of the
Irish National Lcaguo in America , expressed
.in vigorous language to-day his opinion ol
O'Connor Power , who stated on landing in
I America a fuw days upu that there wns nc
difference between himself and the Irisli
nationalists. Secretary Suttou nays the com
ing of O'Connor Power to America has nc
connection whatever with the Irish National
Lcaguo in any shape or fet
nny purpose accept aid or countenance
from him. Ho states that the Irish of America
ica know O'Connor Power and his treachery
that they know him to bo a traitor not aloiu
to his jwhtieul party but to his country unite
i to those who took him from obscurity uiu
f" made it possible for him to exercise his ahll
Hy In treachery. Ho will not bo given an
other chance to soli his country. Ho is dcut
f"r nnd buried insofar ns Irish politics are concerned
i corned and will not bo rcsuriccted by Irish
men In America by any such plausible state
ft- r tncnts as ho has miulo to thu eastern pi'cs
- einco landing In this country.
Mr. Sutton also commented upon tlio cabli
dispatch alleging to como from Hurrlngtoi
which stated that America contribution !
since 18S5 hnvo been very small. Mr. Suttoi
refused to believe that Harrington wns th
author of any such statement , but it ho wtv
ho must have exalted ideas of what const !
tutes largo financial aid ftom America. Mi
Sutton buliovcd that the Irish in Amcrio
rurried constantly heavy , self- imposed taxa
tlon for churches nnd charities in Amorlei
und for support of the i cut burdened Irisl
Jn the old country ; this support without reference
oronco to years had been unfaltering and lui
largely foiced the liberal policy toward lie

New HnioiiTO.v , .Ian. 2. Ono of the most
daring robberies In. Heaver county occurred
this morning at the residence of Uov. Father
Bighorn , pastor tit St. Joseph's Cath
olic church Of this place. Mrs. Cristy ,
the houskccper , bos been sick and
was occupying a room with Miss Mary Mo-
Nally , who acted In the capacity of nurse ,
nnd a young nloco about fourteen years of
ago. At the hour mimed Mrs. Cristy nwoko
and discovered two masked men In the room.
The robbers then drew their revolvers and de
manded her money. She replied that she had
tiono. At this Juncture , Miss Oortlo Clarke ,
the niece , awoke and , solng the men , began
to scream , and Mrs. Cristy , Inking advantage
of'tho confusion , pressed an electric button
which rung n boll in-Father Hrlgham's room.
The priest , suddenly aroused , confused and
half asleep , rushed out into the hallway ,
thinking that the women had been taken
violently ' 111 und that his
services wore required , i . Ono of
the robbers rushed to the hall nnd forced the
reverend gentlemun Into hl room , where ho
nt once bid his valuables , money and watch.
-Tho burglar then told him to open the door
or ho would batter it down , und Father
Ulghpm replied , "I will shoot you
through the door. " Hut 'the villain had
prepared for this by" taking the young lady
out of bed and holding her before him , whcro
she called to the well-nigh frantic priest tenet
not shoot , as she .would surely receive the
shot. The priest then , hid the re
volver and opened the door , when
the burglar made a search of- the room , but
failed to find anything of muoh value.
Ho bcctime so exasperated that ho dealt
Father Uigjinm B. blow wjth n revolver ,
which foiled him to the floor. . The robbers
then forced the four occupants of the
house to walk down sUtlrs and
nt the ix > lnt of a revolver compelled
ttio priest to open the nafo nnd give
him the contents amounting to $111) , which
had been taken In the collections. The pair
then departed. Several hours later detec
tives arrested three men whom were posi-
Ittvoly identiilcd as the men. who committed
the crime.

THE liAIlGKST LilVlNQ BIRD.
How General Sickles Saved the Ijlfo
of a South American Condor.
Now York Sun : "Just after the war
of thu robollloii , " saMGenomlDaniol E.
Sickles this morning , as ho sat before n
looking phiss with u mzor in his hand
and a hither upon hlsfnoo , "I was sent
to Bogota by the United States govern
ment on u dlplouiutio mission. While
there , in one 01 my numerous oxoursionn
about the city , I saw n condor and was
instrumental in Ntving its lite. The man
who owrncd this -bird hwl captured it
while Very young. It was flattened with
a chain around one leg to a stnko driven
into the ground. The sight of the
bird rau.de u great impression on mo. It
was about BOVOII feet in length and the
diatanre between the tips ol his wing *
when outspread was about aixtcon feet.
It stood nearly three foot high. Itt
talons were as long as ray .ilngore. Its
wore as largo as pigeons' eggs nnd
blazed with a light which no captivity
could subdue. I saved that coridor'b life.
Ono of its legs had been attacked by o
little in boot peculiar to South America.
which had a hubid of worming its wnj
into human nnd animal llesh and mul
tiplying with such frightful rapiditj
that the victim dibs in a few days in ox-
cruolating agony. I have seen natives
Iving beside South American roads
their bodies swollen as lai'go ns n barrel
from the inflammation producot
by the „ ravages of thia in
sect. One * of the condor's ' logi
had . been badly lacerated bj
the inroads of this insect. I told the
owner of the bird that I could ollect r
cure , but lie laughed at me. . Said , lie
You dare not go near him. Ho hai
killed three dogs. J have seen him take
n dog by the purult of the iiecU with hii
beak , and then tear a pound of men
from his ribs. I told his owner that ]
weld take the risk. I wont into tin
forest and cut a strong , withy sapling
From thia sapling I mndo a yoke uucl
as is used to put over the necks of gecEi
to keep them from getting througl
fences. This yoke I succeeded in put
ting over CTTo condor's neck. The con
dor was thus unable to use his for
midublo beak , although he tried him
to do so. Two men holt
his sound log while I doctored thi
dibcabcd one. The tnoatinont 1 ndoptei

paid another visit to the condor. Thi

had doubted my surgical skill , nnd htu
Bald that if I cured the bird I could hav
him. I began to inuko preparations t

WHAT WAGE WORKERS WANT
They Aka the Removal of Chairman
Balcombo.
THEY SAY IT WITH MIGHTY VOICE
nnd EnthusiastIc Gathering of
Workers nndJUrcnd Win
ners at the City Hall
Linst Night.
The Meeting , '
Detwecn four and five hundred represents- '
lives of tlio trades organizations of tlio city
assembled in the council chamber last night
for the purpose of entering a protest against
the letting of contracts for any kind of work
on the city hall to convict labor , or the em
ployers of such. Mayor Brontch , a member' '
of the city council , the trades committee ( fluT
the ofllccrs nnd representative men of the dif
ferent worldngmen's trades unions occupied
scats Insldo the railing.
Mr. Nat Allen , president of tho'Plnsleror'B
union , was clmson to preside nnd stated the
object of tho'meptlng. Mr. James D. Green
acted ns secretary.
Mr. Con iLynch , n mortibor of the omer-
.goncy committee , was the first speaker. Ho
referred to the hid of Novins & Co. , und snld
It was n Well known'fact ' that "Bill" Stout ,
the employer of convict labor , was ono of
that lirm. That firm 'had ' bdcn awarded
the contract to do the work on"
the city building , but was afterward re
scinded by the council. Ono of the objouts
of this meeting was to thank the council for
their action , nnd nt the same . .tfmo'nssuro
them that if the wishes of "worklngmcn wore
'not abided by they would demonstrate their
displeasure through the ballot box.
Mr. Smyth was hailed with nu nlan < lo. Ho
sold that convict labor Was nn iniquitous
system nnd should bo condemned wherever
found. There are to-day within tho'Vnlls of
the Lincoln penitentiary 8'M convicts. They
are compelled to produce nil they can in the
ten hours they arc'watched ana dogged over.
The.contractor docs not pay them. 'He does
not hnvo to house , feed or clothe them.
What ( iocs ho have to pay ? Simply n few
overseers nt an annual cost of $ ! M,000 , On
the other hand n manufacturer or rcspccta-
ble contractor employing u lko | number of
honest workingmcn lias to support their
homos , clothe them , pay them u living salary
and Insure them the happiness that be-
16ngs to nil honest wage work
ers. Prison labor competes unjustly
with honest labor , and the speaker gave in
disputable figures to cairy out his assertion.
Mr. Smyth maintained the convict should bo
mndo self-supporting. Convict employment
is a most profitable one , and is fostered and
supported by legislators who vote for it.
These legislators go to Lincoln , for n price ,
nnd nro bought up for that price td legislate
for these convict employers. They are slick
fellows , smooth talkers nnd will drown n
legislator in wine and dine him on oysters.
Thcso fellows who are trying to get the t'on-
ract for building the city hall aru poisoned
vith convict labor , nnd they nro not safe
icoplc to allow to get a foothold hero. The
penkcr in conclusion said that if the worlc-
ngmcn would stand by the city council it
vould thwart convict labor on Iho city build-
ng. [ Cries of "They arc doing it" and
'They'll have to. " ]
Mayor Hroateh was next called out , and
.aid . thai he was heartily in sympathy with
ho objects of the meeting , adding
hat ns long as he could prevent it there
hould bo no convict labor within Iho corpo-
ate limits of the city. Convict labor is not
Vhtit il is credited to be. The mayor said ho
md it from contractors that convict labor was
i loss to them. Mr. Hroateh even know that
ho work done by convicts did not-tomparo
n no w Iso with that of honest labor. . Vhep
10 ran for mayor the laboring men stood by
ilm , and ho would never abuse1 that confi-
Icnco. Mr. Hroateh affirmed thai he nor the'
wuncll would ever do Anything that waS in-
mieal to the laboring classes of Oinaha.r.
Councilman Hasrall pitched intolhc chair-
nun of the board of public works , and told
its hearers that ho would stand by them
cverytimo. It would be a disgrace to , the
city to have their city hall erected , by convict
nbor to the utter disregard of honest laborers
, vhoin the city had invited > to come
icro and live. The council would
stand firm nnd do all iu their
> owcr for the working class , but ho thought
.ho mayor ought to bounce the board of
mulio works if they don't stop writing to Vho
icwspapcrs and training with Ncvins & Co.
Tlio aichltcet , too , was to blame. Ho put n
city hall on paper that , ho said , would cost
? 1H,000. ) Now ho comes and soys It will cost
$300,000 to build , and if ho keeps on itsit will
cost $500,000. Mr. Hawaii said the way the
construction of the building was being mani
pulated the architect and board of public
works were looking for margins , and wound
up by chancing the remark that himself ami
liis associates Iu council were holiest and
above reproach.
In response to loud calls Councilman Ford
came to the front. Ho said that ho felt nt
homo among.workingmcn , and nt every turn
of tlio roud us a coal digger , railroad section
liand , policeman und councilman he
hud stood by the laborer. ' The
contract drawn up in favor of Nevins & Co. ,
was llio most rotlcn ever put in force ,
"Boss" Stout was a state conuptionist and si
bad man to have any dealings with. The
speaker acquainted the audience ; witli an in
tcrviow and broken promise ho had with Mr ,
Hcimrod , u member of the board , of public
works , when the revoking of the Novins &
Co.'s contract was brought up. All tin
frauds in the city had endeavored to force
tlio Novins & Co. contract down the throat'
of the council , but they would not swallow
it. Mr. Ford expressed his ; full synipathj
with the worlciuguiun.
Mr. E. Welch was opiroscd to the employ
ment of convict labor , as was ovary ta'x payei
nnd laboring man. If the contract for com
pletlng the superstructure of the city hall
was lot to Novins & Co. , "Boss" Stout , whc
is the tail end of the firm , would run in hl <
convict labor to the disadvantage the
honest laboring men of Omaha , * -All tin
stone , the speaker said , that would'bo iutio
duced in that superstructure would ho cut
and carved in Lincoln nnd- Louisville
villo , this state , at the quarries ol
"Boss" Stout. The bricklaying nwould .be
done by convicts , and the .plastering by * tin
same Iniquitous class. Mr. Welch urged hit
hearers t < > bo on Iho alert , as the city Ifal
bids were again open , and urged them to.lbol
out for King & Co. , ns ho was positive thej
would scud in the lowest bid. , . "Boss" Stout
ho further alleged , was the power bolflnd UK
throne in this Ilrm , and ho will work In , tlu
convict labor. Tim object of the meeting ii
to forever banish "Boss" Stout from getting
u foothold in Omaha , and Mr. Welch plcadei
of the workingmeu to sec that that was thor
oughly fulfilled.
Councilman Ford said that ns long nsMayoi
Broatch was such n friend of labor , let thi
meeting pass a resolution calling upon tin
mayor to remove St , A. IX Balcombo Iron
thu chairmanship of the board of publii
works , for as long as ho remained in the oflli'i
Stout fi Co. wt3uld get the contract. Thi
suggestion was hailed witlt an outburst of ap
pluuse , and an attempt was mode to givi
three cheers for Mr. Ford.
Councilman Lowry excused himself fron
speaking as hu was hoarse. Ho made the us
portion thnt Mayor Broatch had said to hin
that ho ( Broatch ) told Hoitnrod to vote will
Hulcoinbo In defeating a reconsideration ol
the Nevins ft , (3o. ( contract.
Doctor Lavandcr warned the councilmcr
not to enga < n in any schemes that would bi
detrimental to the working classes , or thoi
would bury them under the mlro so deei
that they would never again como to the Bur
face.
Councilman Mnnvlllo had heard It assortci
ttiat there wns rt ring in the council whei
this Nevins contnvit was under connldora
tlon. There was a ring , if ring to down Nov
Ins ft Co. , for whom and their convict labo
the city Of Omaha has no use.
Councilman Snyder and Mr. O'Kecfo mad
addresses. Thu latter said ho was a men :
bar of the emergency committee , and ex
pressed sorrow that they had not madu an el
fort buforo thl to remove St. A. D. Ba'
combo. But they would do it , and In a slmpi
thnt Mayor Broatch could not Ignore.
On motion the president then uppolnte
Messrs. Oowon , O'Keefe. Mahoney , Oreo
and Lynch , n committee- draw up a in <

A CotnitftkAlcntlon.
OMUIA , Jan. 2. 'Jjo tfjo Editor of the Ben :
A few plain facts ng lijst the uttoinnco of
the alleged orators ol > Mio city hall meeting
InAt night , may not be Inappropriate. A flue
scnso of Justice on 'VficV-j part of the public
toward the man actqrwned ] to staud to his
rights ns already dojlrubd of public record ,
will excuse this comMUiiication in the public
press , ns a plain stat&rffcnt of the facts of
record , ns against h ujs band strains nnd
oratorical skyrockets./ , destined to dazzle
worklngmou. U ,
, Until Kat Allen , pf.lSp Plasterers' union ,
took the chair at thito bnliig of the meeting ,
no one knew under what or < whoso auspices
the meeting was culled. Hand bills nnd
dodgers were circulated throughout the
streets , It is true , by order of the committee ,
as vague-nnd.indefinite as the call itself , and
the bost.proof of the want of sympathy on
the part of the workingmcn with the object
of the tncctin'g was attested by the fact that
four men nominated for secretaries declined
nnd the two first spcntfero , Hon. J. C. Cowln
nnd HornE. . Kosowuter , wwero not In the
audience. Con Lynutv.wus probably the best
exponent of the mooting , because , turning to
Messrs. Lowry , Ford nnd others of the city
council present , ho threatened thorn with the
'failure ' of ro-clection by the votes of the
< workingtnon if they sustained the previous
action for building the superstructure of the
city hull.
Kow a few words to the very workingmcn
Whonttendcd thoineetlng-lnstTilght nnd np-
pluuded the generalities nbout convict labor.
If there was any ono thing insisted upon , it
wns that convict labor would defraud them
of honest wages nnd thereby a continuous
supply of work. In September , 1880 , the
contract for the building of the basement of
the city hall was awarded to the Uegntt
brothers and tlio express conditions of tlio
contract were that the basement was to bo
completed by the following July. Tills is the
year 1SS7 and tlio basement is not completed
yot. The private enterprises in the sumo
vicinity nro going ahead , and yet
n great public improvement is to-day
n hole in the ground , Surely some
worklngmen have been 'deprived of daily
labor and daily wages. Whoso fault Is it ?
Inquire for yourselves nnd bo not deceived
with oratorical whirlwinds in certain interests
nbout your deprivation of work in Omiilm lias
come in. Kevins & Co. hnvo no light with
cither the Koguns or the Bronnnns in the
work bid upon by them , no convict labor
direct or Indirect in nny shape , manner or
form wns proposed to bo used. If it were ,
the express conditions of the contract would
prevent such convict labor.
It will bo found after very little investiga
tion that this row has been raised by rival
and disappointed bidders , and that the work
ingmcn are being used to rake their chestnuts
out of the fire. And , in the meantime , the
taxpayers are getting the worst of it. J. S.

"Only a Farmer's Daughter , " which was
iroduccd at the Grand opcr.t house lust
jilght , has long survived its author. Barnes
died some time ago , but his principal piece
' .ives . , and appeals not less strongly to popular
appreciation than it did when it was first pro
duced. The performance last evening intro
duced tlio third scusbn 6f tho.play in Omaha.
This season will include Tuesday and Wed
nesday evenings.
Mr. Barnes was far from being a great
playwright. Kcverthelcss. his works
display considerable. knowledge of
human nature und a deep insight
into the methods and manners of people of
the present time. "Only a Farmer's
Daughter. " while possessing scenes and situ
ations which savor of the serial story , con
tains a number of features which picture al
most every dav life. They do not display
the delicacy and finish of thewoik of other
writers for the stage. They aio distin
guished , rather , by a roughness , which lacks
but the polish of n more experienced hand to
make them almost universally acceptable.
Singularly enough , this polish has been gen-
oi-.tllv applied by the people Into whose hands
tlio rein escalation of the piece has been com
mitted. Of all these people , the company
which produced the play last night , nro un
hesitatingly the strongest. They guvo an
admirable representation of the piece. Ma
rion Abbot In the dual role of Lbzie Stark and
Mine. Luuront easily won favor with the au
dience. Keither character , in itself , is to be
commended. It is that of a woman blinded
by nn inordinate love for u worthless crimi
nal , who , to prove her unholy devotion , stops
not oven nt \\recklng of n home in whicli
love and happiness uro supposed to dwell
In n woid , it is that of an unscrupulous
adventuress , nnd well does the hubj
play it. Last night , even against the
sympathy of her audience , Miss Abbot !
evoked applause and secured recalls. Jus
tine is the pretty charactcrtho heroine of tlu
piece. It is against her that adventuress
husband , almost everybody sins , and mecklv
carefully vet forcibly docs she declare her
j-olf against it. Naturally , the situation1
which the story of her trouble suggest , make
demands upon the audience , especially the
Indies ; but these are strengthened and ad
mirably worked up by tlio acting of a littli
girl , Maude Thompson , which , with that ol
Miss Elliott , strongly appeals to the fcmaU
portion of the audlcnco. Kato Howard a :
Molly made an excellent soubrette , acting
with care and good effect , though it might bt

The playing of the Musical Union orchostr

A FltHAK MAKES A KICK.
Bxclilng Tillies nt the Kdcti MUBCO
Vostordny Afternoon.
Between 2 and 8 o'clock yesterday nftcr-
noon n mixed assemblage of men , women and
children stood lit front of the entrance to the
rdcn Muscc , at the Corner of Farnnm nnd
eleventh streets , nnd clamored for udmlt-
anco. The box office wns deserted , and there
vas no ono on hand to accept their dimes.
Jurnoy Baldwin , the man with n broken
icck , who tlgurcd among the freaks of lust
veok , stood in the center of the crowd and
appealed to them to stand "by a railroad man
vho wns being imposed upon , and only asked
its Just deserts. " A little woman enveloped
n a big seal ekln cont. nddcd excitement to
: ho gathering by shouting "Baldwin" at the
.op of her -voice without receiving recogni
tion. Officer Cullen , guy in blue cloth und
brass buttons , pushed his way through the
door of the main entrance , followed by Bald
win , -whoso fractured tieck was done up 'in n
tarncss. .As the latter wont In. Muhugdr
Lmvlcr came out and sx | > ko savagely to Bald
win , who ugain said something about getting
his ' 'Just duos. "
Tlio llttlo woman enveloped 1n a seal skin
: oat , nt this juncture walked out on the pave
nnd unmercifully scored Manager Luwlor.
She quickly received an audience , and told
llio crowd thnt Baldwin was her husband and
that ho liad attached tho'box receipts of tlio
inusco for his salary of tSOO , the sumo being
: ho consideration he was to have received for
ills last week's exhibition. Mrs. Baldwin's
narrative had its effect on the crowd , nnd
, hcy nil seoinod very sorry. Inside the buMd-
ing another exciting transaction was being
indulged in. A deputy sheriff hold an iron
Imnd on the cash box , and stood parleying
with Baldwin and representative men of the
nusce. From hot words tc whole crowd
Inally settled down to bus essmid Baldwin
grasping tightly in his hand * Sl 0 made his
way , accompanied by his wife , to the depot ,
nnd took a train for Chicago.
A HUB reporter in a talk with
ho management was informed that
: ho whole trouble originated from
Baldwin's fractious conduct. Every em-
> loyo of the Museo is subject to the rigid
ulcs of the establishment , which imposes
ines for misconduct. One day last week
Baldwin boutino enraged at one ol the
iMnches , dt-cw a revolver and thrciHcncd to
send him to the realms beyond. Tins orcneh
of the decorum of the house the inunnccineni ,
considered sufficient to line him ( 0vKh , :
was deducted on pay day. Baldwin rcOi ed
to comply with this , and therefore the oicco
of yesterday which finally ended in a calm.

WALL STREET GHOSTS.
Financial AVreoks That Frequent
Their Old Hnimts.
Wall street , being the place of dear
hopes , there nro naturally borne ghosts
floating around hero. The Wall btreot
ghost , however , differs from the u&uul
variety of supernatural phenomenon of
fevered intellects They look neil fed ;
some of them have complexions' sug
gestive of purplo-hued and comfortable
Burgundy , Perhaps they don't dress
quite as nattily aa before their financial
dissolution , the diamonds and dit7./ling
carriages and line mansions of the old
days are lacking , und there are other
hcrious evidences in their daily routine
that mark them as. relics of linitncial
activity and hardihood , but they are un
mistakably there and to bo seen any day
in a stroll.through the streets near the
stock exchange or upon the marble tics
in DclmoniCo's.
There are big ghosts nnd little ghosts
in that neighborhood of millions , and
for every shadow of a financial Crcsar
there are hundreds nnd perhaps thou
sands whoso immateriality and financial
disembodiment are known only to the
brokers , or nro food fop the twaddling
gossips of thobuckotshops. Ittacurioub
to note that in a. travel through the
country , nnd parlioularly in western
farming districts , Homo insignificant
relics of financial expectations are occa
sionally mot , but the great ghosts of the
Btreot remain to haunt their precincts
until they expiate finally their financial
sins and go to some financial heaven via
a material graveyard. The explanation
of this is that the little ghosts are hope-
lead Of rehabilitation in golden llunh ,
while the big ghosts are occasionally
buoyed up with the hope that the shadow
of their former financial greatness will
materialize and they bo restored to at
least a competence.
At present there are seven great
Wall street ghosts. They are Sam
Mills , John A. Tobin , Ilonry N. Smith ,
Htifns Hatch , John Pondlr , Alden B.
Stockwcll nnd James R. Keono. At one
time the collective fortune of this group
was estimated at J25,000GOO. There
wns many a stout struggle before finiin-
cinl dissolution overcame them , and at
occasional intervals there have been
indications of spasmodic resuscitation
for bomu of them , but these hiivu flick
ered and waned almostbuforo they were
perceptible to the quick eye and keen
attention of Wall street graveyard
watchmen.
Some fool born to puzzle wise men
with questions has nskod how a Wall
street ghost lives * A lit answer would
bo that ho doesn't ; ho merely oxlbls :
but ono of the host known men on thi
street gave a more serious answer :
"Ono or two iu their palmy duys , " he
. "stowed away n little in their
wife's name. The interest of that money
not * n comfortable living to the family ,
but leaves the ghosts no funds 16 revel
in the enthusiasm of their Lives stock
speculations. When the desire to take
a flyer becomes insupportable , and the
mania does not como over them with ir-
resistablo force often , they ask some old
broker friend to give them a cha-noa ,
that Is , to take the Ksk for tliom , giving
them the profit if any accrues.
Such a request is generally backed
by what the ghost "considers
Bound information ns to the course of
the stock ho asks the broker to tncklo
for him. You BOO these ghosts lloat
around nnd HometlmoH corral early in
formation , particularly of bobtail pools ,
and sometimes , especially if their old
broker friends uro in generous mood ,
thep rake 810J ) or 9200 out of the battle.
Some of these brokers made fortunes
from these ghosts in the day when each
ono of of the ghosts swung from r > 0)00 , ( )
to 100,000 shares of stock in n week. As
a rule , wlion the broker declines tolw
gonormis ho tolls tlto ghost that lie , the
broker.ivlll limit his loss on the flyer to
1 per cent , or 8100. Sometimes , I am
sorry to say , brokers have refused the
modest requests of old patrons who put
hundreds of thousands into the brokers'
pockets. Some of the brokers look upon
the requests of the ghosts as a faro-
dealer would \iixm a player who had
goiio broke nnd wanted to borrow a
sUick of blues , to buck against the bank
ami possibly win. 1 have known of
brokers flatly refusing to grant the
modest petition to buy 100 shares for an
old patron.
"Somo of these ghosts may not have
n cent's worth of interest in the mar
ket , but they jabber away just as in the
old days about earnings nnd possible
dividends , and dibscct tlio financial nnd
railroad news just as carefully us in the
flays when they were on top and ad
mired. Wall street is thoroughly sel
fish , and perhaps in the main coldly
heartless a winner is a trump , n IOMM-
is neglected , nnd so , on the whole , the
ghosts are looked upon ns hangorb-on ,
and are often spoken ot us bores. "
A glance nt the record of borne of
these ghosts recalls the days when Sam
Mills was the favorite broker of Jay
Gould. Mr. Mills wits then head of the
great house of S. M. Mills & Co. , and
at ono time could draw his check for
$8,000,000. George Staynor , Henry S.
Ives'partner , wns once special partner
in MrMills' firm. Ton y nrs ago Mr.
Mills forsook the chance for additional
millions as Mr. Gould's favorite broker ,
nnd with Mr. Keene arrayed himself
against his old jjatron. Mr. Mills lost
the bulk of his fortune in a deal in
Western Union against Mr. Gould , and
the odd thousands , at his command wcro
swept away later.
Mi1. Kuone wns bailly singed , but ho
did not succumb until five years ago.
When Keene came to New York b.6 had
$4,000,000 that ho could command at
half an hour's notice. Ho plugged in
and rolled the $ -1,000,000 up to $12,000,000.
Ho then crossed bwords with Mr. Gould ,
bpeculaled heavily in wheat , lard nnd
opium , and later in puts , calls , and all
ports of privileges , nnd became HO ex
tended that ho went down strangled by
his own complications.
John A. Tobin is one of the most in
teresting ghosts of the htr/oel. At one
time lie uas president of the Hudson
River rnth'oad company. He engineered
the famous corner in Harlem block for
Commodore Vnndcrbilt , which pushed
the block up from 9 to L'oO. Mr. Tobin
is now a frequenter of the bucket Hhops
in New street and Broadway. He has a
small farm on Stntcn Island and soils the
produce of it lo the rostaimints in the
ncighlibrhood of llio htouk oxchnngo.
His great fortune was lost in block spec
ulations.
Henry N. Sihlth ' is btill dapper and
neatly dressed'but laeks the snap nnd
vigor of the days , wheh , with Baron
WoorisholYcr at hif side , lie made the
bulls quake. His failure for u million
and over , which leveled the old house
of William Heath & Cq. in the dual , is
slill vividly remembered.
Kufus Hatch and Alden B. Stockwcll
were each in their da\-president of tlio
Pacific Mail bteamshjp company. The
stock of that company did the business
for Mr. SlockwcH , and ho is
now a broker on the Consolidated
Stock and Petroleum exchange. Mr.
Hatch was numbered among the ghosts
of the street when the unhappy outcome
of his Yellowstone p.u-k enterprise was
fully appreciated. Mr. Hatch reaped n
fortune in Northwestern stok < along
with his old friend Henry Keep , and
even when to-day , though with vanished
fortune , lie. enters the street
ho is heartily greeted , and is
spoken of as the most goilial of gh sls.

HOW BEER IS MADE.
Sonic 1'olnters With Itoforcncc to Its
Manufacture.
Kansas City Times : There has been
no material change in the process of
manufacture for many years. Tlio same
operations are gone through with that
our forefathers for centuries back
thought best. Improved machinery ,
however , has boon nddcd to facilitate
the making. The processes are distinct ,
and are as follows : First the malting ;
second , preparing the wort ; third , fer
menting , and fourth , clarifying.
To properly follow the manipulation
it is necessary to ascend to the ton story
and from there gradually follow the pro
cesses of sleeping , couching , swenllng ,
flooring and kiln drying. It was a hard
climb to the seventh story to a long
room containing a row of vast iron and
porcelain lined tanks , having each a
capacity of 000 bushels , into which , from
wooden' spouts , were pouring steady
streams of grain from an adjoining ele
vator. Hero the grain is expanded by
moisture to prepare it for germinalion.
Jn making malt the greatest care lias to
be given that the right temperature in
had. Tlio work of making mult Can
not be carried on in hot weather. In
the manufacture of beer n largo amount
of water is used. The barley during
steeping Imbibes about 50 per cent of its
weight in water and increases fa bulk
about io ; per oont.
The "couching" process is host scon
on the floor below. From an opening in
the tank above the swollen barley is
poured. The pile mndo is immediately
attacked by a lot ot bturdy follows who
spread it out iato beds about eighteen
inches high. At the end of twelve
hours it in turned over without being
spread. Twelve hours later the grain
has attained its greatest bulk. The
grain is then removed one floor below
and again spread. Hero it is noticed
that it begins lo heat and the temperature -
turo gradually increases. It is now in
the sweating stage. The grain in Hero-
fore turned into the lloor below and
spread out eight inches thick. The
tempornturo is now about bO dog. It is
desirable to keep the grain at this tem
perature and in order to do this the
grain is farther spread. The barley is
now turned four limes a day and shifted
from floor to floor and spread to the
depth of three inches. At the end of
the ninth day the object of the maltster
is accomplished In causing generation.
The operation is then arrested by kiln
drying. A hot air is produced by a fur
nace bttlow. The temperature la gradu
ally increased to 110degrees. It in never
dried for lees than two days. The length
of time that the mult is subject to the
drying process depends upon tlio color
of'tho boor to bo mado. For the making
o ! very dark beer the heat is increased.
In making mall for porter some of the
kornubj are chared.
Now comes the "racking" houso. The
process which the grain here undergoes
is dilllcult to describe. Mounting to the
fifth story of the malt house and elevator -
vator , to n narrow foot bridge sixty feet
in the air , supporting a long box In
which was a revolving 8crowwhieh ent
ries the malt to the house whore It was to
meet with hops and rice , the clutso
was resumed. When tlio infusion is
complete the leaves are shoveled into a
largo prose , not unlike n cldor press.
Pressure is npplip.l to thu same and the
clear juice of the hops run off , through
a copper plpo ihx ! > a basin , only to bo
pumped up into a vast urn-llko tank
which extends through the building.
In the meantime the malt pours steadily
into a rapidly revolving mill of stool
rollers , from which it drops into water
at 105 degrees. Water is constantly
added to the boiling IIULSS. At the same
time ground rii-o Is furiouslylioillng in
vats for that purpose. The mlxtura in
the mash tub is called wort , and when
done It is drawn oil into a large copper
boiler , which has taken the place ol the
primitive copper kettle. Here the '
wort is joined by the hop juice
from below and the rico juice froth
abovo. After boiling for the
proper length of time the contents of
the tub are pumped to nn upper story ,
where shallow pans of great size await
what is almost beer. Hero it is allowed
to slowly cool off until InkownVm , then
it is allowed to cool rapidly by flowing
down over the face of a huge table of
copper pipe , which now contains cold
air made from ammonia by machinery.
From hero the fluid flows into immense
tanks on the lloor beneath , where yeast
is added and the process of fermentation
is begun. The bocr at this stage re
quires constant watching , as the least
inattention my result in tlio souring of
the mass. Afterward the beer is drawn
off into the storage vats and kept from
three to six months in a tomperaturs
of 40 ° before il is ready for use.
Tlio process of hogging is simple.
Connection if made with the particular
vat desired and its contents pumped
direct through "pipes loan open air shed
whore a single man ( ills with two flexi
ble pipes , t\\o kegs at a time. When
the keg overflows from the bung hole ,
the man from the bovattno side puts in
a heaping tcaspoonful of carbonate of
soda , This is to give the beer life and
cause it to foam up so that as many as
200 glasses may 1 > c filled from a single
Keg. A single blow ftf a mallet serves
to place the bun 11 in place , nnd the keg
is rolled on slides direct to the cars.
The interior ol every keg is lined with
pitch. A's each keg is returned empty
it must bo cleansed and ropitched. This
is done by means of passing steam
through red hot pipes.
A SnitUo in IliH Stomach.
A Halifax Special to Iho St. Louis Re
publican says : A wonderful mirgicnl
operation has boon performed nt Elks-
dale , Prince Kdward island. The pa-
tiont. a young man , wiib suddenly seized
Insl May with severe pains in the stem
ach. The complaint did not HCOIII like
neuralgia , and certainly it was not in
flammation. The palicnl also experi
enced creeping1 , crawling sensations in
the stomach. Alternating' ' with the
pains thoie were violet convulsions.
Altogether , the case wun"a most violent
ono. It was pitiful to behold the terri
ble sullerings of Ihc patient. The doc
tor did not at lirst understand it , but
nftcr carefully considering the symp
toms ho siid : "Thoro is a living animal
in that manV stomach , and I wil tike : it
out. " Accordingly on the fitst of
July he piocecdod to operate. Ho had
dingnoM'd tlio unlmal to bo located in the
right plcaric extremily of the stomach. '
An incision was miidd ncrciss tlio opi-
gruslunl. The stomach , being con- ( ' .
traded. wn > overlapped by Iho liver. J
Accordingly the latter first presented
it'-olf. Tlio liver n as drawn up and cure-
fully stitched to the under surface of the
abdominal wall. The stomach was then '
uVawn tip to the edge of the incision and
neatly stitched there. After a few dnys ,
to nWow the hlonuu'h lo form a connco-
lion to its now locality , ho opened the
organ. Then n mol Vomnrknblo sight
was presented. A snake fully twelve
inches long lay coiled up in the sub-
peeled locality.
Having observed light through Iho
stomach wall il was i catty for action.
As soon as Ihe opening in tlio stomach
was made il"sprung nl the hand of Iho
operator. Missing its aim it changed
its tnclics. Tlio attempt wns made to
escape by dashing through the nyloric
oriiicu ; but in this it was foiled , for Iho
gallant npoialor soi/i'd it by the tail
and drew il buck. Having eluded tlio
grasp of the forceps , nn attempt was
made to o eapo into the a ophagus.
Finally il cmorgfd through the mouth ,
and Iho patient was llris relieved of
liis lormcnl , and has I'omplolcly recov
ered. _
One Hundred YCIII-H ARO.
New York Mail and Express : At the
Ilollmau houu ln-4 night a party sat nl
a table in the nrtgnllery making wngor.s
each on his own particular trick. A
younu biokor , who spiml last summer
with liin gitindmolhor iu Jersey , won n
pocketful of greenbacks on a trick
taught him by llio good old lady. Ho
had losl considurnblo mimy on catch
bols when lie ottered to wager
any ono in Iho parly that he could
cat more eggs than any other three men
present , piovitling ho WIIH permitted to
have the last turn. A doctor , a coroner
and a bank tcllor took thu bolt After
a brief discussion Uio llirco gentlemen
decided to laclclo fried eggs. He re
paired to an all-nighl restaurant In
Sixth avenue , famous for Iho encounters :
which men afto.it town have had within
ils portals and ordered a butch. Every
man ate and Iho waller handed a check
for several do/an.
Then Die \nuiig broker that had
learned a thing or two from his Jordey
grandmollior directed the cook to crack
and spill into a largo pan KMIfrosh eggs.
Before putting llio eggs into the pan ,
however , ho ordered thatitbohalf filled
With vinegar. Hln inhlructlons wcro chr-
rlnd out. After allowing Iho mixture to
cook a reasonable time the cover was
lifted nnd and llio eggs placed in n big
dish. By ponnisHlon of the proprietor ,
the gentleman interested had
watched the cooking. When
the eggs wci'o bought forth
every one except llio man with the Jersey -
soy grandmother gave vent to ejacula
tions of astonishment. Thu 100 eggs
could be conveniently put into an ordi
nary teacup. Then Iho owner ale them
in half a dozen swallows.
"Thore'p a hole in tlio pan , " yelled
one of Iho thirty ,
"No there ain't. I'll explain. The
