DUDES IN THE KINO.
Kl Two Voting Society Men Settle a DIs-
1 . ' pute "With Four-Ounce Gloves.
If. , Two well-known young society men will bo
If' missed by tholr friends for several days to
| fc. como. One of them lies nt his homo with
raw beef ou a closed and mutilated eye while
the other is endeavoring to reduce the swellIng -
Ing of several largo contusions on the head ,
The cause of thcso phenomenal freaks of nature -
turo Is that these two potted darlings bad a
flstlo encounter Thursday night in the pres-
cnfo of about twenty mutual friends to settle a
dlfllcully of nearly three months standing.
Tlio rupture between the two , up to last De
cember had been friends of the closest in
timacy , was innocently brought about
by a young lady from the east , n guest of ft
i friend In this city nnd who attended several
of the leading parties during her visit last
To ono of the Millard hotel parties the
young lady was escorted by ono of the
young men mentioned above , and who for
convenience sake will bo called Mr. A .
His friend , Mr. 13 , requested and re
ceived an introduction. Mr. B asked for
a dance and the young lady handed him her
card. When the number was called which
had been secured by Mr. B ho failed to
appear and Mr. A took the young lady
out himself. Just as the orchestra struck up
the waltz Mr. B appeared , a trifle
under the inilueiico of wiuo nnd seeing his
friend dancing with the lady , straightway
conceived that ho had been slighted by ono
nnd insulted by the other.
, , Friends restrained Mr. B from making
: | : " " nny demonstration the ball room and after
the dance was ilnlshcd Mr. A was called
Into a private parlor and asked by Mr. B
to explain. Mr. A replied that ho had
. nothing to explain nnd accused his friend of
acting discourteously toward the lady
by not coining for her before the
dance began. This greatly incensed Mr.
B who called his friend a , liar
nnd struck him with his open hand
in the fnco. Mr. A. refused to create u
sccno by retaliating , but challenged Mr. B.
to n flpht nt nny time. The challenge was
accepted , nnd the date wns set for Murch 1.
Both secured competent instructors in box
ing , und went into training at onco. The In
terference of friends postponed the battle
until lust night. On two occasions a recon
ciliation was nearly brought about , but some
unfortunate remark by ono or the other of
: ' the principals stopped all pence overtures.
' - . I The sccno of the battle Thursday night was n
Fargo private room on North Sixteenth street.
. , The nlfalr was conducted according to the
I V most approved rules of the ring. Each prin
cipal had ten friends with him. The battle
was fought with four-ounce gloves
and lasted twenty-two minutes and
ten seconds. It was fought according
to Marquis of Quconshury rules and it took
eovcn hard rounds of thrco minutes each to
eottlo iho affair.
The light was a bloody ono. The two men
were equally matched both as to weight and
ftclcnco but Mr , A. displayed the most sand.
Mr. li. throw up the snongo nt the end of the
seventh round and Mr. A. was declared the
winner. Prominent club men were discus
sing thfi nttulr yesterday und the Ucr.'H in
formant stated that it was a "dandy mill. "
A IU31 KNTA.NT SINNKU.
At the Ijnnt Moment Ho Restored
Character to a Victim.
The BEE of yesterday published an article
showing the manner in which Rev. Mr , Wcl-
ulior Iho Baptist minister in Abilene , Kan , ,
nnd the revivalist who conducted a scries of
religious meetings in the First Baptist
church of this city last Friday , had removed
from him the opprobrium of forger , under
which ho had labored for many years. When
the gentleman wns engngcd in the city rumors
were in circulation that there was n turned-
down page in Ills past llfo to which ho could
not look with pleasure. These rumors com
prehended the unfortunate experience de
tailed In yesterday' * BIB. : Those to whoso
cars the rumors ci\mo were not affected by
the earnest endeavor of the missionary In his
revival work , but they will doubtless rojolco
with him no\v that ho has been delivered
from the deep disgrace which would huvo
prostrated tt less worthy and noble charao
The confession made is In the following
L letter , the writer , A. J. Hooper , laboring un-
* tier the delusion that Mr , Wclshcr was n
; Methodist instead of a Baptist clergyman.
The lettcrjs addressed to Rev. A. .lurobs , of
Albert Leu , Minn. , who has Ion ? since for

January 27 , J8S8. My Dear Sin I write to
you at this time on aycrv sad subject , I am
getting to bo an old man. 1 shull ten bo bo-
/ore God and answer for the sin of a terrible
life. 1 do not write for sympathy ; 1 deserve
none ; but 1 write if possible to roach and
comfort some hearts. Years ago I was clerk
in Wisconsin in a hotel and committed a ter
rible crime , not in itself so very bad , but In
us results , lean see how It Is fearful to con.
template , nnd I must reap .ray reward. I
heard i'6u preach a sermon in Nebraska a
few weeks ago and you spoke of a nntno ot a
iricnd of yours , Wnlshnr. nnd I thought I
would epcak to JSU. but J did not dure to , ES. I
am too old td pay iho penalty of my many
r Crimes , and I shall soon pay for them eter
nally. When I woa in tbo hotel a > ouub' man
cnmo from some plftco in Ohio and stayed
over night to go up to Waiisnu to pay
Bomo taxci to tnko a horse over
the country. I went to n chum
to arrange to rob him , but I coaxed him to
play a confluence game on him and rob him
that way. So I told Mr. Walshar that the
county treasurer of Marathon co. had gone
away on the train and Ills team was in the
barn ana ho would likely fix It up it ho know
the amount and save him GO miles travel.
Mr. Walnhar gald ho had the treasurer's
statement with htm BO wo were fixed and at
noon 1 pretended to go to the train and
brought the treasurer nnd Introduced him
and ho showed us the statement and my
chum said ho would take the money nnd give
him a written rcccto and so ho gave us the
money. Hut It was not the money that wo
took that was so bad. but a few months after
n man carnc to find If his statement was true
nnd said Mr.Vnlshcr was charged with for
gery. Of course I Hcd about it. I learned
that he was a Mcthadls minister and when
once I thot I was converted I tried to find
him to write to him but found ho
had ben cxpclcd from the mlnlstro
and was dead. The awful sin
then tortured mo and always will , and hell is
nojnorothan I ought to have for this ono
sin , but it was the beginning of n dovolls
lifoand I don't write this socking pardon or
to do the dead cny good but If the name you
spoke of was some relative I could comfort
them by telling this. I have written to n
Mcthadis preacher once and ho may have
foond them but you are the llrst man I over
heard call the nanin.
God knows I would give worlds if I had
them to undo my life but I cannot and I shall
son be whrro I gut my deserts and Justly for
I was well brought up and educated and no
need to servo the dovol ns I have , and now I
am sixty-three years , a curse to the world , to
bo cursed forever. Hoping you may do
something good with this confession. I have
made this confession and I hope you will got
it. May Jesus bless you and help you to save
young men is my wish.
UKLDGING TUB MISSOURI.
Speculation as to the object or John
A. McSlmno's Urldfto Hill.
The telegraph of Washington has told of
several moves mndo In Washington by Rep
resentative McShano to get n favorable
report upon what has boon known ns the
Omaha brldgo bill. Just what the bill purports
to do or where It would have the brldgo in
question located , Is a matter upon which no
information has thus far been shed. The
saino lack of information obtains in Omaha ,
because half a dozen leading citizens to
the Bun reporter spoke yostcrday
about the matter confessed that they
know nothing whatever concerning the sub
ject. Ono of those said ho thought Mr. Me-
Shane's idea was to get the present law re
pealed or amended so as to cnablo bridges to
bo erected at a distance of less than
ono-thlrld of a mlle from ouch other.
It is this law which enables the Union Pacific
at present to monopolize the whole available
river front of Omaha. It is generally con
ceded that the bridge now in course of con
struction belongs to thnt company and pro-
eludes the erection of another between it and
the Union Pacific farther down the river.
Another bridge to the north could not bo
built inside of a third of a milo , and there the
expense would bo enormous , because of the
depth at which the bedrock lies , the long
approaches required nnd the great and
variable width of the river. Ono-third of a
milo south of the Union Pacific bridge would
strike iho Bluffs so that cither tunneling or a
track around the west of the city would bo
required. Such a condition of things is
not pleasant to contemplate and it
is thought that Mr. McShano has taken the
initiative to voice the objection of Omaha's
leading citizens that such a state exists. The
only remedy is to amend the law or if
it bo a rule of ouo of the de
partments to have it abolished.
It Is thought , further , that McShano's bill
contemplates a bridge over the river nt Dodge
street , a bridge which shall bo principally for
railroads , and ono of the best proofs of this
is the opposition which ho is meeting from the
Union Pacific men in Washington. The
necessity for a bridge which shall give to
eastern roads across to this city is well
known especially since the Nebraska Central
was cheated out of its way across the river a
short time ago. Whether Mr. McShano
is encouraged in his efforts by that corpora
tion , is not known , but certain it is in the
event of his being successful the road in
question will not be slow to avail itself of the
accommodation which will then bo available.
A Farewell Reception.
The homo of Hcv. and Mis. J. W. Phclps
in Windsor pluco was the sccno of
n happy gathering ; and yet the pleasure of
the occasion was marred by the mission on
which the participants had assembled. The
occasion was the farewell reception to Uev.
and Mrs. fihclps , who will leave this city for
California about the first of April. For
many years Mr. Phelps has been the presiding -
siding elder of this Methodist district , and
his departure from the scene where his entire
llfo has been marked by the earnestness of
Ills endeavors i\jid the untiring energies do-
votcd to the cause , has called for the most
sincoroTogrct on the part of all who have
known thu rcvorfind gentleman nnd his esti
mable wife. Last evening tlio homo of the
retiring older was filled wlth'young and old ,
representatives of all the Methodist churches
In Omaha , including , with one exception , tlio
pastor of each.
Excellent music charmingly rendered en
livened the events of the evening. Mr. John
Dale called tlio assemblage to order and
spoke feelingly of the labors of Mr. Phelps in
Omaha and the warm friendship and kindly
feeling manifested toward the cider and his
estimable lady , concluding by presenting Mr.
Phelps with a purse of $100 as a slight * .ributo
of the esteem in which ho was held. Uov.
Phelps responded in a happy nnd feeling
manner , nnd assured his guests that the
recollections of his Omaha residence would
bo long and pleasantly remembered. It was
a late hour when the gutheriug dispersed ,
after having spent a most enjoyable evening.
On Easter Sunday Mr. Phelps will preach
his lust sermon in Omaha at Iho Hanscom
park M. E. church nnd with his family
ho will shortly leave for his future homo in

IN FAVOR OF OM/V11A.
"Why the Commission Will Decide For
"Mr. Gibbon , ivhnt is your opinion of the
opinion that will bo rendered by the inter
state commerce commission in Omaha's
casol" asked n Ben reporter of W. A. L.
"It can hardly bo other than favorable to
Omaha. The railway managers attempted
to show that our claims were based bn Jeal
ous rivalry existing between Omaha nnd
other noar-by jobbing points like Lincoln
and that our demand was selfish nnd unreas
onable. Wo showed in both our evidence
nnd arguments that our claims rested on
broad nnd Just grounds ; that the basis of
making Nebraska rates from Chicago was tenet
not only put Omaha on n 'par with Chicago
for the business of this territory , but Lincoln
or any other recognized distributing center. "
' 'But did not the railroads claim that it
would bo Impracticable , that they could not
afford to make through rates from Chicago
on the basis of the sum of the two locals as
"Tho railroad attorneys sot up some such
argument , but the trufllc or general manager
would not mnko such a claim because they
well know that that rule is not only in force
between the great trade centers of the east ,
but it Is the basis to day for malting rotes
from Chicago to nil non-competition points
in Nebraska. Why , in the Minnesota case
tried on Monday before the commission it
was proven in numerous instances the rail
roads were charging more on the through
rate than the sum of the two locals. "
"Then it Is your belief that the commis
sioners understand these points nnd will de
cide in accordance which means simple Jus
tice to Omahal"
"It certainly is. The commission is com
posed of men of mature years nnd of the
highest order of intelligence , integrity and
thoroughly understand the subject1' '
An eccentric character named Michael
