The reception given last evening by Mr.
and Mrs. S. I' . MacConncll proved fully as
enjoyable ] anel elegant ns was anticipated.
Expectations ran high in advance of tliu com-
Ingsoclal event , but * was fully met In Its
realization. The reception was given In the
rooms of the Council muffs club , of which
Mr. MacConncll Is the president , to the
members of which organization , with other
friends , the reception-was tendered. The In
vitations numbered 350 , and so large a ma
jority responded by n personal presence that
the parlors and rooms were as well filled us
comfort and convenience would permit.
The guests were received in the largo par-
lar , Mr. and Mrs. MacConncll being assisted
by their friend , Miss Haskcill , of Atchison ,
Kan. , nn accomplished young lady who has
been their guest during the holiday season.
Mrs. MacConncll wat dressed in wlilto silk ,
en train , trimmed with lace nnd were pearls.
Mlsnllaskcll were u yellow and white pro-
cade silk , also en train. One of the hupplcst
conceits running throughout all the details
of the arrangements was the ! use of the two
e'olors , yellow and white , which were promi
nent In the costumes of the two ladies. The
reception parlor was very attractively ar
ranged and tastefully decorated , sinihix grac
ing the chandeliers and cut ( lowers adorning
The orchestra , stationed in the oftlcc , ren
dered soft. Hwcct music , and when the hour
was passed in the friendly greetings , the
rooms , which had been canvassed for dancing ,
weru thrown open. Other rooms were de
voted to card tables and other modes of en
tertainment for the guests who did not cheese
to .dmico. The music was furnished by
IJulby's orchestra , there being sixteen num
bers , chosen with rare good tuste , and excel
lently rendered. The numbers embraced se
lections from the lighter and more popular
operas , and some numbers which were of pe
culiarly local interest , ono being the waltz
written by Mrs. Skeltem , "Queen of the
Glen , " and ono or two others of the compo
sition of Prof. Dulby , of this city. As a pleas
ing change , there were no snmll programmes
furnished , but nt each end of the reiom nii-
peared upon the walls the order of dances in
letters of gold on white , the two eolors : which
were prominent in other arrangements. The
letter ? were of Mikado art , and the orders
being bordered with smilax proved an at
tractive as well us convenient form for im
parting the desired information to the guests.
In none of the features of the entertain
ment did there appear moro good taste ami
individuality , than in the ) rooms where the
refreshments were served. There wcro two
largo tables , and about nn hour after the
dancing parlor had been thrown open , the
doors of the dining room opened and guests
made their ingress and egress nt leisure , aud
enjoyed the hospitable suread most heartily.
The tables In their arrangements and adorn
ments brought emt the favorite colors ot the
evening , lloth tables were exactly alike , so
that the description of ono will sulllco for
both. In the center was a largo sijunro of
yellow plush. This was bordered with
smilax. Upon the plush rested a fruit de
sign , made of oranges and white grapes , an
other combination of the two colors. On the
diagonal corners were ! white carnations tied
with yellow ribbons. On the other corners
were Mikado napkins of yellow nnd white ,
arranged in rosettes. The souvenirs of the
evening wcro very happily selected , they be
ing policemen's clubs , very small , made ol
white wood and tied with yellow ribbons.
The club members especially appreciated
this humorous touch upon the name of their
organization. These little souvenirs were
arranged at one end of each table so as to
form , in Mikado letters , the initials of the
president of the club , "S. P. M , , " while on
the opposite end the little clubs wcro made to
form the initials of the club , "C. H. C. "
The guests were served with coffee , Frond
flutes , olives , ices and cakes. The ices ant
cakes were all of the prevailing colors , white
and yellow. Lemonade was served through
out tlie evening from a largo cake of ice , the
purity of the color , with the golden of the
lemons , being in harmony with the white
The arrangements thus happily made wcro
carried put with charming case and resultce
in making the occasion a most happy ono foi
all participants. It was a social event whicl
will ever occupy a prominent place in mem
ory's record of this season.

The grand event in the police court ycster
day morning was the case of Ida Washing
ton and Jennie Armstrong , charged with dis
turbing the pcaco. They both reside nt No
TOO Hroadwuy , a place of rather shadowi
reputation. Their testimony was so violently
contradicting that the Judge orelered the chic
of police to "pull" the house nnel bring li
every inmate. The patrol wagon was sen
down , and shortly afterward a load of th
coloreel aristocracy was whirled up Broae :
way at a lively rate. There wcro cloven it
all , ranging In ago from two years to fifty
Two of the party , William Green and Charlc
Jones , were released , as it was shown tha
they rented a room there and no charge wa
preferred against them. Several witnesse
were examined , and established the fact thn
the cause of the outbreak was an ill feeling
that had long existed between the ebony-hue
Ida nnd her mother-in-law. Mrs. Washing
ton. sr. , insisted that Ida was too old to llv
with her son Jake , anel had on one occa
slon brought a hatchet into piny , t
help enforce her arguments to that etfecl
and at another time a younger son , William
had taken it UIKJII himself to administer
thrashing. Mrs. Jake maintained that sh
w.ts well able to attend to the needs of he
husband , and that she was going to do it.
Shu claimed that she was paying rent for
both families , and that "dem odder folks is
got to git out. Hero's dis yer ole white gal
whats llbin' will dem niggers , and 1'so a
'si > ortln' 'em all. Dis ting is gone Jess as fur
ns it's a gwino to , and eloy's got to climb.
Does yer heah what I say , yer ole black por-
pnst Talk up to do Jedgo. "
The other side then reopened with vile
charges and threats , varying her tirade with
criticisms on the eftlclcnry of the police force.
The Judge listened patiently to both sides ,
and then lined Ida , Jennie , the old woman
anel her son William * IM0 ! each. There was
not a dollar in the whole hunch and they were
released until this morning to gut the cash.
The old woman vowed that she would return
with all her children and go to Jail. His
honor stated that the other residents in that
vie-inity would have ijuiet for a few days at

The Tcaolicru Sustained.
The board of education has been making n
thorough examination of the charges made
against two of the lady teachers that they
had inflicted an unjustifiable and cruel pun
ishment upon the step son of Mr. Lynchard.
There was considerable evidence hoaril on all
sides. The upshot of the whole ) matter scorns
to have been that the boy , for violation of the
rules , was sharply spanked by one of the
teachers , while the other , in accordance with
the rules of the school , stood by as n'witness.
The spanking was a severe one , and the
marks of the pnddlo were visible for several
days' . The claim was made that the boy \vas
for several eluys In such a condition as to bo
alarming. Other evidence was introduced ,
however , to show that the very evening after
the whipping ho was out and about , engaged
with his ulster In bringing m wood for the
house. One neighbor said that the next day ,
or two days , after the whipping the boy was
playing with other boys and turning somer
saults , and not always striking on his feet.
There was the inference thai sonic of the
marks upon his person might hare been
iviuscel by this ground and lofty tumbling.
The boy Insisted that the statement of this
witness should be corrected. He was n bet
ter athlete than that. He struck on his feet
every time. From this It appeared that ho
must have been In better physical condition
than was represented.
The testimony of the doctors was to the ef
fect that the boy had evidently been struck
pretty sharply , but none claimed the wounds
to bo dangerous or alarming.
The board did not attempt to settle the
question as to whether there should bo cor
poral punishment in the schools or not. No
attempt was made to determine the ejucstion
whether u lighter punishment would not have
been wiser or moro ID accord with the nature
of the offense. The only question sought to
be settled was whether the charge was true
that the teachers had "cruelly and unjusti
fiably" punished the boy. The bonrel unani
mously decided in favor of the teachers , find
ing that the charges were not sustained.
The young ladles have suffered much by
the notoriety given to the affair , moro proba
bly than the boy suffered , and surely less de
servedly. It would seem that with this llnel-
Ing of the board , and the facts as they wcro
developed , the father of the boy would not
care to press the matter further. He seems
to be on the warpath , however , and threatens
to appeal to some other tribunal. The publio
interest In the case will ello away , however ,
there being a feeling of confidence that the
officials who have investigated the case fully
are fully competent to Judge and are honest
enough to give expression to their convic

The readers of the LJui : will remember the
appearance of an item some two weeks ago
In which it was stated that a young lady ,
Emma Mott by name , had applied to Justice
Schurz for a warant for the arrest of a. young
man living in Monmouth , 111. The Justice
told her he had no Jurisdiction in the case ,
and gave her certain points in procedure
which would give her the protection she
sought. Acting upon this advice she re
turned to that state and stopped in n small
town a short distance from the one in which
her recreant lover and betrayer lives. Hero
she caused his arrest.
At this point Council HlufTs and vicinity
figures. K E. Clippinger , an Omaha attor
ney , was there on a visit , and as soon as ho
returned home , a day or two ago , he visited
Justice Sehurz to learn what he could of Miss
Mott's statements to him. It is attempted to
prove that to the 'Squire the young lady
charged her disgrace upon another man.
While in the city the unfortunate girl
stopped at the American house , and to the
wife of the proprietor confided the terrible
secret and the naino of the man. It is said
that a letter was written to him , the answer
to which is hi the hands of this lady. In it
the young man admits his guilt and says he
is ready to protect the girl he has mined with
ills name. In the face of this evidence it is
difficult to sec how the defendant will clear
himself on the plea of alibi.

The attendance at the institution for the
eleaf and dumb is increasing steadily , but
still it is not so large as it has been in prev
ious.years. One of the causes assigned is
the fact that under the new law the pupils
are not given the reduced rates for railway
fare , and as many of the parents are poor
they shrink from the expense of sending
their chilurcn here to school. At the present
rate of increase , however , the attendance
will soon reach the full numbers. The annual
report of the institution is not out yet. It Is
being printed in the office of the institution ,
and for some reason the work Is not progress
ing ns rapidly as it ought. The annual re
ports of the other state institutions are nil
distributed. There has been n demand that
teachers in the institution should bo exam
ined tne same as teachers in ttie
public schools. There is no state
law making any such requirement ,
but the legislature will probably bo askcel
this winter to pass a law , which will provide
for the cxamatlon of all teachers in state in
stitutions. If examinations are necessary to
secure qualified teachers in the piiblio
schools , it seems especially necessary for the
success of such state institutions. | They
should have the very best teachers. Hecog-
nizing this fact the board of trustees has or
elered that the teachers pass examinations ,
hereafter , and as one such examination is
apnroaching , there is a general brushing up.
Quiz clubs have been formed , the old text
books are being rcthumbed , and the teachers
are refreshing their memories in anticipation
of the dread event.

It is surprising to see how many ministers
there are in the city now that it is time for
the railroad companies to issue their annual
clergymen's permits. The contract stipu
lates that the holder must bo n regularly or
dained minister , iiiiu also bo in charge of a
congregation , yet twenty-five applications
have already been made to the ticket agouti
of tills city for such permits. J. C. Mitchell ,
of the Wabash , waxes quite "hot'1 over the
effrontery of some of the applicants. Said ho
yesterday to n Uii : : reporter : "They seem to
think that because they sometimes talk a lit
tle in a prayer meeting they are entitled to n
clergyman's permit , and they como hero in
droves. Last year a man and his wife offered
mo $3 if I would get them a pass , and there
are plenty moro of them. The gamblers of
the city are as much entitled to n minister's
permit us some of these parties. Their gall
assumes such magnificent proportions as to
completely take away my breathoVou bet

The great Indian warrior chiefs. Sit
ting Bull , Heel Cloud , Spotted Kngle ,
Hump , and Charger , have been busy the
past summer with their followcis di -
cushing ( ho Dnwes reservation hill , says
a letter from Pierre to the Indianapolis
Journal. This is a strong combination ,
as it takes in the leading men of the
great Sioux nation , and what they pro
claim is law. Silling Bull is renowned
as the wonderful medicine mini who
made the mixture of herbs mid roots ,
amidst the soundsof tomtoms from
squaws , that cau > ed the defeat ef
the gallant Custer and hi * neiblo
and brave 7th cavalry. The eild
chief is worshiped by the Sioux
Indians , ns was shown ein his recent
visit to Cheyenne agency , where ho
was presented with fifty handsome ,
ponies , and escorted to his homo on
Standing Rock agency by one hundred
lodges. The advice of Bull is weighed
and ho is an extraordinarily intelligent
Indian and realizes that his naino is
khown throughout thu civilized world.
Four years ago the old chief parsed
through Pierre on his way through
Standing Rock from Fort Randal ,
whore he was held as prisoner of war.
His arrival drew hundreds of people to
the steamboat landing , and thu old
chief diel a rush of business sell
ing his autographs at 60 cents apiece.
On this occasion ho had cause to become
enraged over the duplicity practiced by
Colonel Dell Coy. lie handed Sitting
Bull a half , and requested that he sign
liis name on a leaf from a bee > k which
lie extended. He did feo. and the colonel
retired with twelve autographs which
ho presented to his friends at U5 cents
apiece. His hook was manifold. Bull
realized that ho had been duped , and
had ho been favored with nn opportunity
ho no doubt would have made bad medi
cine for the colonel.
Hump was one of Sitting Bull's lead
ing warriors. He is no\y chief of the
Indian police , and lives sixty miles from
here. He has done away with the tepco ,
erected a lo house , and albO induced
some lifty of his people to do likewise.
Ho has also discarded his long hair , the
blanket and breech-cloth , and donned
the attire of a full-lleelgcd American.
Ho takes a grunt pride in being compli
mented on his natty appearance , and if
all the Indians possessed the ability of
Hump the Indian question would soon
ho settled advantageously to the race.
Hump has made two trips to Washington ,
and this , no doubt , had a wonderful in
fluence on him.
Charger has boon a friend of the
whites for forty years. During the New
Ulm massacre it was Chief Charger who
warned the pioneers of the threatened
uprising ami joined the whites against
the reels. His gallant work was re
warded by the government presenting
him with' several hand&ome medals a
very small recognition for his herenc
work. Spotted Eagle is the idol of Sit
ting Bull. Eagle was with him during
all his trials and troubles in British
America , and the friendship existing
between the two is something unusual
Red Cloud is accused of being the
most troublesome and nhles Indian on
the reservation. Ho is keen , shrewd ,
nnd considered a big bravo. Ho is now
sixty-eight years old , dresses like a
white man , with short hair. He is of
the eld school.
This is the delegation , accompanied
by Interpreters Low Jowott and Lew
DoWitt , that expect to visit Waghing-
ton next month and have a talk with
the great white father regarding the
Dawcs hill opening up a portion of the
Sioux reservation. Over $6,000 has
been raised among the Indians to defray
the expense , and their wild west show
on a small scale will create no little at
tention at the nation's capital.
Chief Charger Hump and Spotted
Eagle mot at Cheyenne agency a few
days ago for the purpose of making all
nccchwiry preparations. It has virtually
been decided to . .metot at Fort Bennett
anel go via Pierre * Sitting Bull.through
his representative- , Spotted Englo , sent
word that ho haellicon promised assist
ance from ono of , tie ) Indian rights asso
ciations , and ho expected transportation
for the delegation. Ho had aUo been
inylted to visit 1'hlludelphin , hut ho
should proceed to Washington at once
and if the leave of absence coulel be re
newed , ho would prolong his visit by
accepting several invitations of Indian
"Have you any special measures to
urge ? " uskcdjgyour correspondent of
Charger , through Interpreter DoWitt.
"Yes , wo have many. When the treaty
for the Black Hills was made our people
ple wore blinded. They thought the
white man wanted only the hills. When
the treaty was signed wo taw that wo
had given away ton times moro land
than wo intended to. Wo did not un
derstand what meridians meant , WeJ
are going to ask the white farmer ex
actly where the Indian reservation
commences and ends. Wo don't under
stand meridians. We go by rivers ,
. creeks and mountains , and don't want
any 'moro bml.feelitiirs when all is over.
"I" that the'only'objuctuf making this
long trlpV '
"No. , we .shall try and sell our land for
money. We don't want horses , wagons
and cattle. Give us the money and let
us do like the white man. buy what wo
need. We are willing to let the land
go , but don't think it is right to tell us
what we sbiill take for it. ' '
The Indians nro neit averse lownrel
the Dawes bill , but labor under the impression
press-ion that by ge > ing pcrs-onally they
can induce congress to increase thu
amount they nro to ree'oive for the land.
