Tlio coal doalorHof Lincoln nro Htirrcd
up with wrath because their scheme to
HWallow nil the reduction of rates on
coal IIIIH huen exposed to the public.
Uecauso the facts wore laid bare in u
paper printed in Omaha \vtin HUlllelent
OXCUHO for Ufo Journal to ru h to the
ilofenHO of the coal pool and thin dodo of
jouriiuliHin evidently thought that such
u mouldy cry no Unit "n paper printed
in Omaha exposed the hohoino , " was
fjreat enough to hide its alliance with
the ring fiom puhlie fjnzo. The eoal
people have gone into lltfiircH also on
the question and exposed the fallacy of
the Htalemeiit that "Ilfjures cannot Ho. "
According to tlio niathcmatirB of the
coal men dealers on the Misnouri river
who bell coal at $10.50 a ton are making
consumeiH a present of 91 on a ton. No
one believes for a moment that any coal
man ever became t > o liberal. It is not ,
in fact , a question at all what coal
Kolls for at any point in Nebraska or in
the entire country , hut the fact thatdoes
confront the people of Lincoln is that
the freight bureau and the state hoard
of transportation secured a reduction
of GO cents on every ton of hard coal
shipped into Lincoln , and not a nioldo
of this benefit lias over reached the con-
Humor. This is the entire question be
tween the coal pool in Lincoln anil the
consumer. Sixty cents a ton on coal is
worth something to the public , and it
was secured for them and not the half-
dozen coal linns , and until the people
got the direct bonolitof reductions made
it makes the work of tlio hoard of trans
portation a farce and renders it without ,
courage for future work. Every citizen
of Lincoln who pays for a ton of coal sur
renders to the dealer ( JO cents of his
own personal money that the hoard of
transportation secured for every con-
Humor in the city , and for the GO cents
the citizen gets absolutely nothing in
return. This is the coal question in
Lincoln in a nutshell , and if the paper
that tells the truth in the matter is
printed in Omaha it is no less the truth.
The Journal is welcome to its position
in assisting the coal ring ; it is directly
in its line of business.
For some time hack trouble has ex
isted between John Livingston and his
wife , residents of this city. Warrants
liavo been issued in' police court , the
wife making complaint of assault and
Imttory against her husband and the
husband making a like complaint
i against the wife. Saturday the wife
was allowed to sober up in jail sifter too
much drinking , and when the charge
against her came up for hearing , the
husband withdraw the complaint and
ngreed witti the olllcors to supply his
wife with $0 a week of his wages if she
would depart from his roof and give
peace a chance to dwell therein. Yes
terday morning , however , the woman
invaded the promises and a hand-to-
liand sculllo was witnessed on the side
walk before Livingston's rooms that
was highly disgraceful in itself , while
the oaths , imprecations and vile
language wcro positively disgusting.
The woman had evidently been drink
ing again and was attempting to force
herself under the protecting roof , while
Livingston was equally determined she
should not. The woman disappeared
iu time to avoid arrest.
The police put in part of the night
Saturday in search of a girl , Martha
Bragor , who has not been at homo since
she attended a dance the llrst of the
week. There was no sensation in the
matter , however , for the police reported
yesterday that she had simply been
Htaying at one of the hotels in the city
with ono of the proprietors of the dance ,
a man by tlio iiaino of Hart , and the po
lice had the girl located yesterday at
\Vost Lincoln awaiting the action of the
parents. In speaking of the man ITart
the police aver that ho is an ox-convict
from the Missouri penitentiary , and
that lie has an unenviable record in nu
merous ways , but from appearances yes
terday there was not liable to ho any de
velopments beyond a line in court even
if the trouble was taken to arrest Hart
on the part of the parents of the girl.
Two men named John Mohan and
William F. Hottman.woro under arrest
yesterday and ono of them detained
at the station. The charge against
thorn is for fighting , and they had a
lively scrap Saturday night that they
will answer for at the Bitting of the
court to-day.
Two young men wore evidently tryinsr
to have a little amusement at the ex
pense of Polsky , tlie second-hand man ,
t > y pawning a revolver and raising $1
for Sunday enjoyment. They attempted
t > Jarrange the law and thu ownership
of the gun in a way to make the second
hand man a loser , but lie turned the tu-
hles and had ono of them , named Jack-
l-ll Mm , arrested toy petty larceny. The
hearing of the case will ooour to-day.

Swell Mexican StitilnntM.
A Now Haven , Conn. , correspondent
writes to the St. Louis Olobo-Domoerat :
C. E. Paul and Count Jose Davohrs , al
leged Mexican students , who caino to
Yale college to take a course in the
Shofllohl Bciontillo school , have disap
peared , causing great excitement among
their student companions hero and the
tradesmen , who were left in the lurch
to the extent of nearly $10,000. It was
ascertained to-night that the last
definite knowledge of their whereabouts
was at tlio Southern hotel in St. Louis ,
The career of these two Mexicans in
Koxv Haven is a remarkable one. They
came hero in the fall of ISSti , and Paul
Marled to lake a special course at Yale ,
hut only remained long enough to make
the acquaintance of wealthy Yulon-
Hions. bavolas ostensibly came hero to
improve his knowledge of the English
language. Davoles dressed in the
height of style and lived on the strength
of expected remittances like a million
aire. Ho dressed in the height of fus-h'
ion , had jot black hair and mustache
and looked not moro than twenty-three
years of ago. Pani is a different type
of Mexican. Tie is short , thick-set ant ;
went about with a ditferent capo over
n % oatoauh day , that swept the sidewalks
nn odd-looking headgear and tJ'oull ter
rier. The Mexicans , . by old
of forged letters ; induced 'al
most every ono they came
in contact with , nnd Ihelr acquaintances
were very numerous , to advance thorn
money. They hnd most sumptuously
furnishednppartmontfl in a Hat and took
their meals , Which wore the best the
mnrket could n fiord , at Drobel's fashion
able restaurant on Chapel street. 1'anl
alone owed A. Thill , a tailor , $1,600 , anil
various billiard saloons , livery stable
keeper ? , wine merchants nnd tobacco
nists from $200 to WOO each.
A billiard nnloon keeper mimed Miller
says Pan ! had some trouble wllh a young
woman on Ashmun street , nnd it is
thought thai she precipitated his flight ,
as she wanted to see him worse limn ho
did her. Pani was lasl seen at his res-
lauranl , where he owes a bill of $ . ' ! 00.
Davolas had a big railroad scheme
which lie laid before many wealthy
New Haveners nnd got them to lake
slock In. II was for tlio construclion of
a railroad between tlie United Stales
and Mexico , nnd ho said that the capi
tal of the company was 58,000,000. Ho
gave il out that ho had been authorized
by the government to push Iho mailer ,
and that Jay Gould was to bo secretary
of the company. Ho hnd almost com
pleted arrangements when ho loft
whereby many moro of the merchants
would have boon victimized. It was an
alleged plan whereby their goods could
bo easily introduced in Mexican mark
ets , where his wealthy friends would
nid the tradesmen. Pani claimed that
his father was a senator in the Mexican
government , and Unit his uncle was a
rich bishop of Mexico.
Ono story that ho told was that he
had fallen heir to $11.50,000 from his
aunt's estate , and ho kept giving out
promissory notes on this alleged wind
fall. The notes kept coming overdue ,
but lie satisfied the credilors by tolling
them plausible stories of how there was
trouble in llio bottling of the esiate.
Unclaimed Gold.
Manager Coffee , of Wells , Fargo &
Co. , recently said to a San Francisco
roporler : ' 'You may bo surprised to see
what slacks of gold coin and gold dust
remain hero uncalled for. When wo
have kept it long enough , wo sent the
gold dust to the mint and get it coined ,
and then credit to the unknown. Years
ago an old fellow living up on the John
Day river , in Oregon , sent ns a big bag
of gold. Wo stowed it away until the
bag looked like a rclio of the middle
ages and would scarcely hold
together. Then wo sent the bag
of dust und nuggols over to the mint
and got it transferred into $8,000.
Eight years afterward an old , bedrag
gled-looking follow walked in and said
ho guessed ho had some money hero.
Wo asked him his name , and when ho
gave it wo told him yes , ho had , and
asked him why ho hadn't called long
ago. Well , ho said , ho had so tit it
down in advance of his coming himself ,
and when ho got hero he didn't need it ,
and he went on to Australia und finally
around the world , and had only just'now
got back. Wo asked him why he hadn't
taken it to the bank , saying that ho
could have got a good many thousand
dollars interest on it by this time. Yes ,
ho said ho know that , but the blanked
banks might break , and ho thought ho
would jubt leave it where it was. "
Great State Missouri IH.
Washington Critic : In the South
Kensington musouin , London , there is
an enormous skeleton of a mastodon
from Benton county , Missouri. This
summer when Congressman O'Neill of
that stale was over , ho was wandering
around the museum lonesome enough to
kill and worn out looking at so many
strange things. Finally ho ran across
Iho mastodon. Ilisoyo rested upon the
inscription and a wonderful light came
into his face :
"By thunder , John , " ho exclaimed
rapluriously lo his companion. "Look
at that ! Just look at it once 1" .
His companion , an Englishman , looked
with moro or less indifference.
"I see it"he said with provoking cool
"But , man , look at that inscription ; it
comes from Missouri 1" continued the
congressman onthusiaslicnlly. "Old

The glory of the Indian has passed in

school boysallondinglho Central school
at Ogdun polled two Indians , who were
passing , with snowballs. The Indians
gave eliaso and captured one litllo boy ,
but on his saying that ho had not
thrown any snowballs they let him go.
The Indians made a complaint , but got
no satisfaction.

A TJOVC Story With a Moral.
"I had n queer experience up iu the Repub
lican valley about four years ago , " said Nick
Sloman to the UEB. "It was my first trip
through that country , and I was caught Sun
day in a little town , the name of which shall
be nameless. Sunday morning I required a
new collar and I started up town to get it.
The first place I happened to see open was a
little , warped , ono story frame building , across
the whole front of which was painted : Solo-
imin ICahn , Clothing. The room was badly
lighted nnd the very nir was redolent of
shoddy. There was no ono In the store room
and I stepped back to the open door of a room
back. I saw It was a living apartment as I
approached the door , nnd us I thrust my head
into the room a glib word of apolo
gy formed on my lips but it
was n thousand miles u'.vny the
next instant. Standing in the center of the
room , her hands clasped before her nnd her
eyes turned upward toward some object on
the wall , was the most beautiful crcuturo I
over saw. Beautiful I such a facoas operates
on n fellow's heart like u lighted fuse on u
jwwdor heap I was the worst struck gosling
you ever saw In a minute. She was not in
the least startled by an introduction. She
turned her great , dark eyes upon mlno with
some such grave , unfrightencd , questioning
look as u celestial , hedged about by beauty ,
might bestow upon a rashly venturing mor
tal , Then , after u second's serene scrutiny ,
her features broke into the most dazzling
smile that ever finished the business for any
fellow. I was about to stammer something
I've ' no Idea what when a weazen little
fellow ns warped as the building , came hob
bling in from the rear door. I stepped aside
to admit him to the store room. Entering ho
slammed the door in my face , shutting out
out the rapturous presence I was staring at.
Having accomplished which act of fatherly
protection ho inquired wherewith ho could
servo mo. Bo had no collars of the stj'lo I
wished , but no matter I bought half n dozen
half a size too small ; I lingered lovingly over
brass cull buttons and glass pins ; I fondled
trousers that might have been made during
the Bnbalonlan captivity indeed , they bore
marks of convict labor ; I caressed coats of
the fastness of whoso colors ray hands bore
witness for many a day after. Then , with
tender circultousncss , I lead the old man to
crops , the weather , court , courting , marriage ,
children to his daughter. Ah , the old gen
tleman's Jaw closed up Hkn a clum ; ho went
suddenly deaf but , "I hat a elega'ul line of
sgarvs ere , vut I zell ud Imv gost oud , mine
new koots to mage room ver. "
The strength of my incipient passion may
bo understood when 1 say that 1 spent half a
month's salary in collecting from thu old man
a perfect museum of dry and furnishing
goods monstrosities. Ho courteously and
patiently displayed his "elegand lines ; " ho
unctuously gathered la my shekels ; but when
it came to his daughter no go , his loan old
jaw came together Hko a trap.
By Inquiries ut the hotel and about town I
got a good many facts regarding Kuhn. nnd a
good many guesses about his beautiful mys
tery. Some said she was his daughter , some
said Khi ) was his wife , some had u shrewd
suspicion that she was some sort of a divinity
whom ho was harboring. I learned that she
never went out of doors except at
night. und then always closely
veiled and accompanied by the
old man ; that she had no friends or acquaint
ances ; that only ono or two people had ever
seen her face to fare , and then the meeting
had been accidental.
Well , for the rest of that trip and for sev
eral others , I never sat down for a quiet
smoke after supper but what n pair of black
eyes would look down at mo from out of the
smoke clouds in short , I was as idiotic as a
fellow that's hard struck Is apt to bo , and
among other Inanities you can bet I counted
up the days that must elapse before my trip
would again take me to this town of no name.
The days wore themselves away finally , and
I sat smoking my evening cigar in that very
dingy hotel oalcc in which I had unt
cherished drenms of the beautiful
jrlrl. District court was setting In
the .town and tli * room Was full of
lawyers. Presently , 1 lienrd one of
them say something nbout 'State vs. Kuhn.1
No more dreamt Uion I I listened for every
word. I overheard that the old man had
been arrested , charged with arson , ami Unit
the trial was llrst on the docket for the next
morning. Pcrhnn * ftho would bo there 1 Of
course it was dead sure that 1 would be
" .hero.
1 was there an hoilr before the case was
railed , and I don't think no much as a iloij
amc Into that room that morning that os-
TJKHI my eyes ; but she did not cojno. Initially
hey brought the old man In and the case
ivus called.
The first one at the flro testified that the
itoro room was all hblazo when they arrived
it the scene , and that Just as they came up
hey saw Miss Kahn dart through the door
: ommunlcatlng with the back room , run
'lirough the HamcH , catch up some object
'rom a shelf and run buck ; but that though
hey were nbout there until the lire was out
hey saw nothing furtherof her. Then there
ivas a lot of testimony , uninteresting to mo ,
nbout the value of the stock , the probable
aiuso ol the fire , etc.
When this testimony was lu , the county
attorney started up.
"Call Itachcl ICahn , " ho demanded.
I straightened up from my lounging post-
Ion , and ran my lingers throng my hair and
surrpctltlously adjusted my tie. Hut some-
'hlng extraordinary was shaping In front at
: he attorney's table. The old man had
started up , turned nnpcalingly toward the
Judge , then frantically toward his lawyer.
His emotion was pitiful to sec ; his face was
drawn ; his hands twisted about each
other. Ho whispered a word to his lawyer ,
then sprang up , stretching both hands toward
the Judge.
"Do laty Is mine vlfc , " ho cried , "mlno
vlfe you canned mage my vlfo to tcsdifyl"
The learned nud astonished prosecutor
-urned upon him. "Will you swear to that ! "
10 roared.
The old man turned white as snow , but ho
never flinched.
"f vill svcur , " ho said firmly.
Tno prosecutor was considering the next
move , when an interruption occurred. The
ilccp hush of expectancy was over the room.
The spectators saw what these at the bar did
not , viz : a lull , veiled figure moving grace
fully down the uislo toward the prisoner.
Just as the county attorney opened his lips to
speak a calm voice behind him asked in Ger
man tongue : "Do you want me , father I1 *
The redoubtable prosecutor turned about.
Ho saw the situation at a glance. "Shu calls
him father , " ho yelled. "D' you hoar thatl
She calls him father. I demand that this
woman bo sworn and bo compelled to testify
as Soloman Kuan's daughter not as his
wife. "
'Can she speak Engllshl" ho asked of the
old man , with the air of saying , don't you lie
to mo again , sir.
Kahn started up from the chair in which
ho had flung himself , a ghost of hope flicker
ing into his woo-bcgono face at the question.
He shook his head. An Interpreter was
called and the old man settled buck with a
moan. Old Kahu's daughter hail stood , with
her veil still over her face , Just as she stopped
when she asked the toll-talo uucstlon. The
interpreter spoke to her now , directing her
to take her place in the witness box. She
turned to her father. The poor wretch
nodded and covered his face with his hands.
The girl took her place , reached up her
arm and lifted her veil. A murmur of ad
miration ran around the room. Her face
wore the same look of serenity ivs when I
first saw it , except'that her brows wore
slightly knitted , and she looked toward her
father as though expecting some cuu from
At the Interpreter's direction she held up
her hand and the oath was administered.
Every breath In Hit ) room was hushed as
the attorney opened his lips to question her.
'What is your name ? " ho asked.

The audience hung upon her reply ns much
as though it were the life or death of the
She sat motionless , looking Intently at her
father. The old man's ' emotlou was terrible.
He writhed In his chair , ho twisted his lingers
into his scant hairhis , teeth ground to
"Wie hclson Ziol" the intcrpreler asked
again. ' >
Not a sound. The court turned toward the
father. "Is the young lady deaff" he asked.
Kahn leaped from his chair , his lace livid
with agony.
"Mine got , shentlemans , mine tear daugh
ter is grazy , " ho shrieked.
That was the first and last romance of
life " said the traveler "and
my , , you can
wager every cent you have that I cut my
teeth on that occasion. "
Mileage Tickets.
The roads in the Central Traffic association
may as well adopt at once the proposition to
resume the Issuance of 1,000-mllo tickets at a
2 cent rate , says the Chicago Tribune. The
drummers have won this fight , and the
sooner the railroads surrender the less odious
they will be. The western lines gave up the
contest months ago and somewhat grudgingly
resumed the sale of mileage tickets at the old
a cent rate , and there is nothing left for the
eastern roads but to follow the example with
the best grace they can. The discussion at
the last meeting of the Central Trafllc asso
ciation disclosed the fact that , while the rules
of the combination forbid the sale of mileage
tickets at a less rate than Ji > for 1,000 miles ,
the provision is evaded by several of the
lines. The Michigan Central and a few other
eastern roads are now selling tickets good for
seven persons at the rate of $40 for 2,000
miles. The Grand Trunk is selling 1,000-
mile tickets for ? 'JO , the mileage being good
for ono person and limited to a year. Of
course the trunk lines cannot go on charging
at the 2 } < i cent rate without provoking a seri-
ious demoralization of regular business. The
Jig is up , and the eastern lines cannot get
their 2 cent mileage tickets on sale any too
In the entire administration of the Inter
state act there has been nothing more signifi
cant than the controversy over this mileage
ticket question. At the outset the eastern
and western roads united to Jump up rates
on the drummer 20 per cent , falsely claiming
that such an exhorbltant and unreasonable
advance was rendered imperative by the
terms of the inter-state act , and calculating
that such misrepresentation would make the
now law odious. Theyprofessed to make the
advance reluctantly , but averred that under
the now law they could do nothing else
Manifestly these allegations were insincere
While the now law did away with favoritism
and required all persons patronizing the rail
roads under similar conditions and cirpum
stances to bo treated alike , it distinctly pro
rldcd that nothing in the act should prevent
"tho issuance of mileage , excursion or com
mutation passenger tickets. " Clearly tlio
meaning was that while special rates
might bo allowed regular travelers
the roads must sell to all purchasers
of a largo amount of mileage on the sumo
terms. There was nothing requiring a rcgu
lar traveler to pay the same rate as a chance
or occasional passeriRcr. The only thing
ncejlod was for the roads to surround thcii
mileage tickets withqcrtain conditions whicl
would make them available only for drum
mers and other regular passengers , and ii
consideration of such limitations to grant a
special rate. . . . '
A Narro y Escape.
Many of the commercial travelers had nar
row escapes in the recent blizzard. Ono es
cape imrticular , that of Mr. Landers , who
travels for u Chicago hat and cap house , will
no doubt bo of Interest to his many friends
and acquaintances throughout the state.
Alter dinner on the eventful Thursday after
noon ho , in company with the liveryman ,
started in a sleigh from Rising City to drive
to the town of Shelby , seven miles distant
on the Stromsburg branch of the Omaha & ,
Republican Valley railroad. When about
half way the storm struck them In all its
fury , completely blinding them. The horses
became unmanageable and refused to go ,
after persistent efforts on the part of the
driver. Not knowing what would bo the
best to do , they , in a spirit of desparatlon
and as a last resort , determination to detacl
the from the sleigh , and lot them go
where'er they would , and themselves starlet
on foot In hoi > cs to Hud , If possible , some
friendly shelter. Becoming bewil
dercd ns ono blindfolded thej
wandered on and on , facing the blasts
with an almost undaunted determination to
go through. Hut the fury of the storm was
moro than any human being could withstand
and the bravo fellows were compelled to sue
cumb to the raging elements of the stern
king. After vain and futile attempts to pro
ceed they drifted onto a pile of llax chaff
whore they undertook to take refuge. Thl
was about a o'clock In the afternoon. They
proceeded to dlj a uolo iu the chaff largo
nough for thorn to Ho In , and there resolved
0 remain until the storm had f pout it force.
'heir robes and clothing wore wet from the
Jilting snow , which before the storm was
melting as It fell. The sudden change chilled
he very marrow in their bones , and their
vrnps were frozen stiff , lly constant ex-
rtlon , such a. pounding the ground and their
xidles with their hands , to keep up circula
tion , until bruised to almost bleeding , they
nanaged to pass the evening and night.
Lying on one another's feet by turns , they
saved those extremities from severefroatlng. .
in doubt they uttered expletives In a prayer-
ul mood , ns traveling men can to n degree of
icrfectlon. Their horses remained with
hem until the storm ceased ,
ibout 2 o'clock In the morning
vhen they loft them and sought shelter in n
ricndly grove about half a mile distant.
When daylight dawned and It was the most
icautlful and grandest daylight scene the
> o.vs had ever witnessed they found them
selves within n few feet of n straw stack
vhere , If they had known of lt existence ,
hey might have burrowed Into it anil made
or tnemselves u comparatively comfortable
shelter. Forty rods distant was n farm
muse , to which plac-o tney started almost ex-
mustcd and partially frozen. Their hands
uul lingers were badly frosted , but will not
mvo to be amputated , The faces of both
were badly bitten , which now makes their
noses and cheeks the color of n minstrel ,
flic most remarkable feature of the domi
cile In which they passed the night is It was
occupied In part by n family of skunks ,
hero being only u thin partition between the
rodcuts and themselves.
A Corporation Jack Pot.
A commercial traveler writing to the St.
: 'aul Glebe says : The railroad people have
> con discussing and tinkering with the mile
age question of late , and any real system
atized action Is ns far oft now as six months
ago. The 2,000 nillo book has been pro
nounced Impracticable. Several schemes
mvo been advanced , among others the 5,000
nile book good on all roads , but so fur not
ono adopted. The 5,000 mile books find most
mlversal favor among travelers and mercan
tile houses. Very many of the eastern roads
are selling 2,000 mlle S20 books , and It Is most
Ikoly that form will come Into quite general
use. Legislation upon the Interstate com-
nerco law In the near future will make
some changes and the traveling tourists may
confidently look for a better and moro uni
versal form of mileage before the ides of Do-
ember , 1888 , and perhaps in the form of a
5,000-milo book , no rebate , good twelve
months. There is no good reason why the
commercial men or their respective houses
should put up a sum In shape of rebates of
several hundred thousand dollars for the
several railroads to bank upon. If they want
> Jack pot let them assess the stockholders.
It Is neither Justice or horse sense to extort
money from their patrons , whoso labors in
the end make them wealthy corporations.
While the rate of faro is getting attention
from tlio railroad magnates , It Is to bo hoped
they will not overlook the excess baggage
He Was Called In.
There was an amusing Joke perpetrated
upon a prominent commercial traveler , who
represents the interests of n popular farm
machinery company of this city during the
recent blizzard. It is usual for all salesmen
: o report each day their exact locality so
, lmt In the cventof n failure of any customer ,
or anything of immediate importance is pre
sented , they cau bo communicated with by
telegraph at any moment. The storm of
course shut off all mall communications from
the outside world. After four or Hvo days of
1 blockade , the house became uneasy in not
iiearlng from their representative , so tele
graphed a landlord in a certain town where
they know ho had been. It scorns tnat
some of his friends of the fraternity , who
chanced to be "snowed in" at this hotel , got
bold of the message and seeing nn oppor
tunity to give the desired information of the
gentleman's whereabouts , and at the same
time perpetrate a Joke , sent , lu reply , some
thing like the following by wire "collect : "
"D loft hero on last train Thursday
morning for Osccola in company with the
Blind Boone concert company abandoned
ttio fraternity lured by the attractions of the
prinia donna. "
On receipt of this his employer telegraphed
him at Osccola to report at once at head
quarters. The first train brought him in ,
and 'before his majesty sat the victim of the
joke not knowing what the matter was. The
message was handed him and an explanation
demanded. Of course ho hud to tell him it
was only n Joke by some of his friends.
After considerable argument the explanation
was considered satisfactory , the matter ami
cably settled and ho left the ofllco with the
parting injunction that hereafter , to put him
self in no position whereby anybody can have
cause to suspect things of this nature. The
question to him now is : "Where arc you
going to show next 1" Ho is out again , but
lie is looking for the party who did the "dirty
work. "

Detroit Free Press : "When I am gone , oh
think of mo"walleda screnaderovcr andover
again under the window of a Calumet ave
line hotel the other night. After ho had said it
for the fifteenth time the fat and furious face
of a Chicago drummer appeared at an upper
window and a voice hissed out : "Ycs'm
young man , I will remember you and you'll
remember mo for n long time after you're
if don't out in less'n three
gone , you put seconds

with a pound and a half of cold lead iu it that
I'll give you as u memento of mo if you don't
stop tootiu' and bawlin' under this window
at an hour when decent folks are abed. Now
you go homo I"
The sweet song died away into silence , the
lips of the sveet singer wore dumb and ho
sighed heavily as ho slung his guitar over his
shoulder and ambled off into the cold work
with a suspicious policeman following In his
Omaha's Snniluy Guests.
"No use talking , " remarked a well-known
traveling man , while seated in the corridor
of the Millurd yesterday afternoon , "if you
want to pass a Sunday pleasantly and profit
ably with the boys and enjoy the luxuries of
life , Omaha Is the place to tie up to. " In
this observation the speaker showed a love
head , for tlio principal hotels were ycsterdaj
crowded with the jolly knights of the grip

of them in that house.

. A. L. Davis , a Memphis drummer , was
found dead in bed in that city January 10.
The doors of the house wcro open , giving In
gress to the blizzard that was blowing for the
past two days. It was evident that ho had
been frozen to death. During the reconstruc
tion period Davis was a leading republican
politician of Panola county , Mississippi , was
chairman of the county executive committee ,
and at one time had the position of chancery
court clerk. Ills influence over the negroes
was almost boundless , but it is said ho never
misused his powcr'to the extent that others
of hlsclatsdldat thattlmo. Ho was a man
of some property , and leaves a wife from
whom ho has been separated for some time ,
and who now lives In Now Orleans.
Albert Smith , n young drummer from Now
York , made u substantial and successful protest -
test against the overcharge of a hackman
last week in Chicago. His remonstrance was
backed up by n revolver , five chambers of
which was discharged at ttio Jehu. Mr.
Smith , who was locked up at the Dcsplalncs
street station denied that ho shot at the
hackman , but , when arrested , his pistol was
still smoking. It seems that Smith , who
boards at 2C West Adams street , hired a
hucknian to take him to the Wisconsin
Central depot , and paid the man it for thu
trip. Ho found ho was too late for his train ,
and says that ttio hackman charged him $1,50
for the return trip to his boarding house.
Upon his refusal to pay this sum trouble en
sued , during which ho drew his revolver and
fired , though Fovoral of them were flattened
against the bricks of the Union depot. After
discharging his revolver Smith took refuge
in his room , where ho was arrested by the
officer , who hud heard the shots.
