A Tlmoly and Important Decision
of the Attorney GeneraL
More Ijtiwyora Admitted to Practice
A CIINC DlMrnlHscd Additional
Paving School Contribu
tions to the Fund.
r Attorney General Loose has written
n reply lo nquoryfrom .ToIIcrson county.
It appears , from the enquiry made , that
nn nllon died in that county possessed
of landed real estate , IIH ! heirs all being
in Germany. The county judge wrote
regarding the law in the case aud the
question if thu land of the alien os-
oliuutod to the blato or U the foreign
hotra could recover the land itself. Mr.
Locso writes as follows :
"Under section a chapter 65 of the
session laws of Nebraska 1887 , land
owned by non-resident aliens at their
death escheats to the state and the bamo
must bo appraised and the amount paid
.over to the lawful heirs of such aliens
as provided in the chapter above cited.
At tbo present time the obstacle in the
way of such proceeding is the want of
funds for the payment of the appraised
valuation of the Inuds. The legislature
made no appropriation to moot such
cases and ft would seem that in cases
like the ono referred to , that the par
ties must wait until the next legislature
convenes to maka appropriations to pay
this class of claims. " '
Court met pursuant to adjournment.

Yesterday morning the criminal case
ngainst the Ilerald was dismissed by the
prosecution nfter occupying the after
noon of the day before in largely hear
ing the testimony of Dr. Doggo , which
was a rehash of the same testimony that
has rung in the ears of the district court
for the past two years. Ono of the
nttorneys representing the prosecution
staled that no was not in favor of con
tinuing tho. examination in the case
largely because the statute of limitation
had run against a largo lot of the testi
mony that was prepared for submission.
It looks as though limitation was the

Tlic Ice Gorge ut Nt. Louis.
ST. Louis , Jan. 31. The ice gorge which
: ias formed on the Mississippi river in front
of this city began at midnight last night nnd
drifted down stream about three hundred
yards when the Immense weight was checked
and remained intact until 10 this morning-
At that time It became loosened and
crashed down upon nearly $1.500,000
worth of proi > erty , which it wa.s grinding into
ruins. Already several barges and steamers
-tho Tumm , Muttio Belle , and Hayes , have
been sunk. The Hayes , a largo excursion
steamer , which is the property of the Anchor
line , is a total wreck. She wns valued
nt $80,000. The Mattlo Belle is
owned by the Illinois river com
pany. The Taium was a ferry boat. The

then the leo has been floating out. Steamboat
men now say all the really dangerous part of
the gorge Is gone.

been withdrawn the organization no Jonger
existed. It wns resolved to continue the as
sociation ten days longer and then hold an
other meeting to consider the situation. The
Burlington < Sp Northern has signalized Its In
dependent position by a U ) pur cent reduction
on all classes from New York to St. Paul

Yesterday n UF.R re | > orter met \V. J. Cou
ncil nnd asked him what steps should betaken
taken to correct the title of the city to the
site now occupied by the central high school.
"The title to It Is all right , even though
the deed of conveyance was not signed by
the governor at the tlmo of the conveyance.
The text of the conveyance Is not what It
might bo , but it would bo entirely satisfac
tory If the nntno of the governor word afllxed.
As It Is the city has held the property nine
teen years , nnd there is nobody to question
it unless the stuto , which , of course , will not
ndertnko to do so. "
u "Could the present governor sign the con
veyance ! "
"The act of the legislature required the
governor to sign the. deed within a given
tlmo. That signing was not nnd oannnt now
bu done. The only thing that now remains
Is to get a little net passed by the next legis
lature setting forth that , In view of the fact
that the governor had not sUrucd the deed In
question , authority to sign bo given to-tfio
governor who imiy be In power at the pass
age of this enabling act. " ' ' -

Mr. A. Hosownter tilri'd Mr.'Sholton , repre
senting the Omulin , jjutlkUm it "Northwestern "
railroad , yesterday afternoon api > enred before
the county cominlssioiierft with the evident
expectation of recolvj'AgYin ' answer us to what
they had resolved to $ .lji reference to calling
a special olectlon f oryj | iuri > ese of receiving
nn expression from tno.taxpayers nnd voters
of Douglas county In regard to voting $300,000
county bonds for th l construction of the
road. The commissioners were evidently in
nn unsettled stuto Of , 'nilml regarding the
proi > osltlon , nnd bcat'&triund ' the busli In an
exjiert nnd evasive fusljlon. The chairman ,
Mr. O'lvoeffo , was completely undecided.
Commissioners Mount and Turner wanted
further tlmo to consult with County Attor
ney Slmcral so as to "put him on record'1 In
regards to it , nnd Messrs. Anderson and Cdr-
rlgnn passed the greater part of their time
hobnobbing with their constltuunts in the
corridors. There was , however , apparent , a
fooling among tire commissioners that 100.-
( HW was too much to vote to the roud ,
nnd O'Kccffp publicly expressed as
his opinion that $200,001) was
enough and in fact all the people of the
county would stand. Mr. O'Kcello was made
to understand that tho. promoters of the en
terprise would not bo mitlsllud with n sum
less than that iisked , find that besides , it de
pended on the voters to any whether * JOO,000
should bo the figures. Mr. Itosownter con
cisely nnd intelligently sot forth the bonctlts
to bu derived by Omaha from the enterprise ,
and agreed to concessions , the like of which
h < J maintained had never before been made
by railroads to whom the county had heretofore -
fore voted bonds.
Two or three taxpayers nnd property-
owners had their say , the principal speaker
of this class being Mr. James Creighton. Ho
said that ho had favored the building of a
road- similar to the one contemplated for
years , but ho considered the petition now before -
fore the commissioners not binding enough
In Its details , Besides ho would not plcdgo
himself to supporting the nppoal for & 00.000
of tronds.
The commissioners were again granted
until Thursday to make up their minds wnat
they would do in the matter.

After an absence of several years from
Omaha Mr. James O'Nell made his re-entro ,
last evening , on the stage of the Grand
opera house , presenting the picturesque
drama which has given "him both fame and
fortune , "Monte Cristo. " The occasion was
signalized by the ntteiuWnco of ouo of the
largest and most appreciative audiences that
has been seen at this house since its opening ,
n fact that bore most gratifying testimony to
the popularity of the actor. Mr. O'Neil has
'become ' so completely . identified with the
character of Monte Cristo , and his thoroughly
admirable impersonation of the role In Its
every exacting phase has.been so fully com
mented upon that there is really no demand
for anything to bo said regarding it
except a general commendation. It is
a characterization as thoroughly indivldal-
ized as any now known to the stage , and in
its particular way , as entirely excellent and
admirable. There Is no slnglo feature of it
that is not presented with a nice respect for
natural requirements and a ilno artistic ! finish
which leaves nothing to bo desired. The
varying lights nnd shadows In the eventful
career of the hero are portrayed with n vivid
force , and a severe imprcssiveness that be
come to the auditor an iini > orishahlo memory.
It need hard hardly ho uuld that the intelli
gent nnd discriminating audience of last
night was immediately won to favor , and fol
lowed the actor throughout with n deep
interest. Ho was frequently applauded
with n vigor and earnestness not common
with our audiences , and it may be said that

Addle Lamb Ends Her Life With
Hough 0 1 lints.
Scarcely three years , ngo Addle Lamb loft
her homo in Avoca , Jnij nnd came to try her
fortunes In the Gate ( Jlty. ! Last night she
was lying dead In her homo nt 830 north
Thirteenth street , dressed in a neatly-fitting
brown sill : walking suit nnd awaiting the
tardy charity of her friends to furnish a
conln or shroud. It is the old , old story.
Unable to withstand the temptations of a
city life , she was led astray und more than
once attempted to end a life that was dis
tasteful to her In this world , in order to try
the uncertainties of another. Under the
name of Maud she was well known to the
frequenters of the third ward , and those who
seem to know her best speak most highly of
her good qualities , hut say she had the misfortune -
fortune of drowning her sorrows in the
wine cup. About eight months ago , however -
over , on her return from a trip to
Grand Island , she married a bartender
named Charles Cummings nnd once more
commenced life anew. But fortune did not
smile on the union , nnd shortly afterwards
the husband found himself out of n situation.
This preyed upon the mind of his wife and it
is mild that once or twice she went back to
her former mode of living , only to bo re-
I claimed by the husband , until nt length on
Saturday ujght , she took a do'so of "ro'ugh on '
rats , " ns the readiest way to end her troub
les. 'It n'aS some time before- she admitted
having taken l > oKni , but wl\eir \ ho did med
ical aid wns at once fiummdncd , nnd three
physicians we're In attendance. All known
antidotes 'and "remedies were applied but
without avail , nnd she died shortly after 7
o'clock yesterday morning. Telegrams have
been sent to her former homo but as yet
without receiving an nnswor , nnd old-time
associates nro now subscribing 11 sufficient
amount to procure n decent burial. She was
nbout twenty-four years of ngo.

There were "citizens" present at the
council meeting but they were not
of the noisy , demonstrative kind , nnd there
were no calls for eittier police or guns. In
fact the meeting throughout wns in marked
contrast to the stormy session of Saturday
night , und it seemed as If there would be no
more attempts nt bull dozing , and that law
nnd order would in future bo respected.
Most of the time was occupied in the trans-
nction'of routine business , the first departure
being the swearimr'in of Councilman Whit-
tlosoy of the Fourth ward. Ordinances 3d ,
relating to the licensing of shows und exhi
bitions , 40. to the licensing of peddlers , billi
ard halls , bowling allies , shooting galleries
and gamingtables ; 42 , providing for the re

men Loescher nnd Burk wished them re-
ferred'hack , ns the report wns only signed
by one' member of the committee , but on the
explanation of Chairman Smith .wero
out voted , and the ordinances
declared them carried. Councilman
Smith suppestcd that rules bo prepared for
the government of the police force similar to
those in use at Omaha. The reports of
special committees were then received as fol
lows : In relation to the charges preferred
against Councilman Loescher , Chairman
Smith reported : u We , your committee of the

welfare of the city , the meeting adjourned ,
the members leaving in a happier frame of
mind than usual. '
Arrested For Throwing Ills Family
Into the Street. .
Carl Faltenadt , recently in the employ of
Motz , the brewer , has lately been in the
habit of coming homo drunk nnd most out
rageously abusing his family. Monday night
he came homo in his usual beastly state of
Intoxication nnd turned his wife nnd three or
four little children , all scantily clad , into the
street. They had to seek refuge with Bomo
kind hearted neighbors named Hamilton.
Last night Foltcuadt came home drunk again
and attempted to carry out the programme of
the night before. Ho drove his family again
out of doors , but John Hamilton took the
matter in hund and telephoned for the police.
Officers Hlnchcy and Dempsey promptly re
sponded. On reaching the house the officers
found the little' children nnd their mother
standing shivering in the cold while the bru
tal father , inside the houso. made the night
hideous with his curses. On attempting to
go Into tbo hoUsd the policemen found that
Foltnnadt was braced against the door , and it
was only after considerable difficulty that
they succec'dod in getting inside. They found
Foltenadt almost'nude , having nothing but a
shirt on. They ordered him to dress himself
nnd go with them. Ho refused to do so , and
while Hinchey stood him on his head , Denip-
soy forced u pair of trousers on him. Throw
ing a coat on him they tumbled him Into the
patrol wagon and hustled him off to the cen
tral station. His family were thus allowed
to pass the nlglit in peace und quiet under
their own roof.

Another Thrilling Incident of the
Late Storm.
Willis Franklin , a garduer , residing nt
Florence , In this county , was rescued from
being frozen to death during the late intcimo
cold spell by his faithful shepherd dog. Ho
started to cross the Missouri on the ice to HCO
a friend living a mile or so within the Iowa
confines. When near the op ] > osltc bank ho
was seized with an epileptic fit and fell on thd
ic.e. Ho must certainly have perished of the
cold , but his devoted canine friend did his
utmost to arouse him by barking , licking his
face and pulling at his clothing. Finally
Franklin recovered sufficiently to git up , and
realizing that ho was rapidly freezing , ho
culled to his dog and grasping him with all
his strength by the tail , bade him go homo.
The intelligent animal seemed to understand
what was desired of him and started to
scramble back across the bleak river. After
much tugging ho reached the Nebraska
bank , and hero set up such a dismal howling
as to soon attract the attention of some pass
ers-by. Although Franklin escaped with his
life , both hands and one foot were badly
frozen. _

Active Quotations.
Cmaioo , Jan. 01. ( Special Telegram to
the BKK. ] The wheat market seemed to bo
seeking n lower level to-day nnd during the
most of the session appeared heavy , but
toward the close there , was a better feeling
nnd the result of the session's trading wns to
leave prices with very little change. The
bearish sentiment was largely local , nnd no
was the selling , while the support came from
tho'outsldo. There was good buying for St.
Louis nvcount , nnd nt critical periods houses
with New York connections appeared as
buyers nnd turned the tide upward. HutchInson -
Inson was a seller early , nnd Jones , McCor
mlck & Kcnnett sold considerable wheat.
Heports from winter wheat sections of dam
age already done and of the poor condition of
the plant lo withstand severe weather are
continually coming In , and the ili-iiincss of
the St. Louis market and the buying
hero for St. Louis parties was attributed to
the uneasiness about winter wheat. On thu
other hand foreign uuws was discouraging.
May wheat opened nt 81J4e , nnd soon sold
down to 8l-jf@81K'i ? with perhaps one "live"
nl SlH'e straight , and it was nt this point that
good buying for Now York started prices
upward again. On this turn the May future
touched Sl jSlJ/c , then It fell to Slj r , and
hung a little above this until just before the
close when some good buying and covering
by shorts sent the price up again to SlJ r ,
the 1 o'clock close being nt 81J4'81JiCp. Feb
ruary wheat opened at nti , sold down to
TSJ o nt the I o'clock close , nnd the highest
point wns nominally 75Jf(2T5Xc. (
There was only a moderate speculative
business in corn nnd the market was feature
less. Sympathy with wheat was given ns a
reason for such changes of price as there
were , but during most of the session thcso
changes were InsignlhVunt. Mny corn opened
nt M e , advanced lo Ki ; nnd fell to St } f@
5'JJ c , but thereafter until near the clnso thu
only fluctuations were between r/ ' c and
5'J ? < o. Later the price dropped to fi'JVe , then
advanced to 52Vc and closed at 1 o'clock nt
f > ' ' ° ( YM"4C. February corn opened at
47 ! fe and closed at 1 o'clock nt 47J < o bid ,
which wns the highest point. Corn hulls ami
corn bears both llnd no lack of news to sup
port their opinions.From northern Iowa
come rcportsof abuiuhmcoof corn nnd n proba
ble ilood of grain for Chicago soon. From
these sections of the corn belt where grain
was killed come report * of higher prices for
corn for local consumption than can bo ob
tained In Chicago.
There was not much doing In oats In a
speculative way , but the market was firm ,
Mny oats opened at XSw : ; < c , sold atSJ'JJfo
and 'WjscI'Wo ' , closing al the last named price
at 1 o'clock.
In provisions the day's market furnished
something of a surprise to the general trade.
Under thu influence of nn unexspe < jted "run"
of hogH , bu.sint'ss opened with a bearish in
clination. Initial sales of pork were made at
prices showing a decline of 15C217Kcfrom last
night's closing of lard at a depreciation of
2 c , of short ribs nt prices fully 7 > o lower.
As trading progressed , however , tno opening
depression was supplanted by unlocked for
strength. Brokers , seldom if ever , seen in
the pit made their presence known
with liberal buying orders. and
ns the demand from them wnsmoro than suf
ficient to take the offerings of the bear party ,
higher prices followed as a matter of course.
The early decline gave way to an advancing
movement of sufficient vitality to recover
practically the ground lost. At 1 o'clock
pork stood at last night's final quotations toKe
< ! Ko lower ; lard at the same figures toKe
higher and short ribs unchanged.

butchers' stock was not as plentiful as yes-

time this brought out a fair demand , but
trains came rolling in ono after anotliei , and
they had to make another concession of fie ,
