Tlio Firm Chaittnuqita Assembly.
"Mr. Harkncss , please make n note of it
that this Is the llrst Chautauqua assembly , "
remarked Colonel Chase , of Omaha , ns ho
and Mr. J. L. Stewart , with others , alighted
from tlio carriages which had brought the
party to the proposed Chautnuqua grounds.
This visit was In accordance with nn ar
rangement made between the boards of
rado of Omaha and Council Bluffs by which
committees from each body were to visit the
grounds in company with n Chautauqua com-
jnittcc. The day was a perfect one for such
n purKjso. | The grounds would have looked
more attractive two or three weeks later ,
ivlicn the foliage has appeared and
; ho grass greener. The lay of the
and could easily bo seen , however ,
and imagination could add the rust.
There were between thirty and forty In the
jiarty. Among these from Omaha were
Mayor Hroatch , Colonel Chase , C5. M. Hitch
cock , John H. Evans and N. Mcrriam. There
wore si goodly number of Council Hluffs citi
zens , among them being Mr. J. E. Harkncss ,
who lias worked so zealously and success
fully in bringing the enterprise to a success
ful start that his name should in some way
bo permanently and prominently connected
with it when It shall bo fully under way. He ,
with Colonel Tultoys , Thomas Ofilccr , F. O.
Gleason and others interested in the move
ment , kindly gave nil the information needed
and pointed out the advantages of the loca
tion. Among others present woic Henry
Colter , J. F. AlcGce , W. S. McMicken , H. L.
Shepherd , .1. C Itixby , Hobert Ofilcer , Lucius
Wells , John Dohnny , Frank Cook , A. 11.
Walker , Mayor Kolircr , T. J. Evans , A. S.
Haselton , O. W Swan , and representatives
of all the Omaha and Council Hluffs news
papers , with the exception of the Nonpareil.
The party roamed over the 110 acres with
delight. The grounds were pronounced very
picturesque , and well adapted for such a
purpoto. Located only two milts from the
center of the city , with two lines of railway
running through the grounds , it seems that
a better location could not bo secured. There
are natural sites for amphitheaters , a level
camping ground , romantic rocks , some
springs of water and.'a goodly creek. It has
been arranged that by some little changes in
the creek , an artificial lake can easily be pro
vulcd In fact , the advantages of these
grounds are so numerous ami so great that
there seemed but ono opinion concerning
them. The proposed route for a motor or
street car line was pointed out , it being an
easy one , with but one grade to overcome ,
and that not lie.ivy. A winding and
very romantic roadway furnishes another
way of reaching1 the grounds , and with the
two railways the grounds arc made very ac
cessible for all modes of travel.
After looking over the grounds the parly
took carriages and enjoyed n drive ui >
Vaughn avenue and then to Fail-mount
park. About 5 o'clock the carriages drew up
in front of the 13echtele hotel , the party
alighted and entered the dining hall , where
suitable refreshments satisfied the appetites
made keen by the drive and invigorating air
of the hills.
A short visit was made to the club rooms
and then the Omaha visitors were taken in
carriages to the Broadway depot and de
parted homeward , evidently pleased with the
results and experiences of the trip.

Too Fast Ily Far.
Much complaint is made concerning the
furious manner in which the patrol wagon
is driven through the streets of this city.
The horses used in this department are
among tlio fastest owned by the city , and as
tlio citizens are well aware of their speedy
properties their is no occasion whatever for
"showing them off" when they are taken
out to answer a call. This branch of the
city service is very different from the lire
department , and the delay of a few minutes
in the arrival of the wagon makes but little
difference , In case of a fire every second
.counts and it Is imperative that the depart
ment snail bo on hand as quickly as possible ,
but the patrol wagon is usually sent to bring
in some vag or drunk , and when the wagon
reaches the place a policeman is found sitting
quietly on the curbstone with his prisoner by
liis side , and in the majority of cases ho
would wait half a day if tlio wagon did not
arnvo sooner. In ordinary cases there is no
occasion to drive the houses faster than a
trot , and nn order from the mayor to that
eifi-ct would bo much appreciated.
A few days ago as the patrol was rushing
furiously down Fourth street with the gong
ringing at every jump , it overtook a buggy
in which two ladies wcro riding. Their
horse bceaino frightened and dashed down a
side street , running tlirco or four blocks be
fore they could get it under control. The
next day n mad run was made down Broadway -
way just at noon , as this thoroughfare was
filled with people on their way to their mid
day meal. Three people had narrow escapes
from being run over , to say nothing of the
effect upon their nervous system.

inoutli plaything was safely stored in the fire

An Unknown Man Killed.
The body of nn unknown man , horribly
mutilated , was found on the tracks near the
transfer about ' .1:30 : last night. The remains
lay on the east-bound track , nnd it was evi
dent that the freight train which passed
the point about 8 o'clock struck him.
The body had been dragged fifty
feet and the entrails scattered along
the track. The coroner was notified and
an Inquest was held. Nothing , was found
out , however , about the identity of the dead
man. He had been talking to ; i switchman
about 7 o'clock , and remarked that ho
guessed ho would walk across the bridge to
Omaha if it didn't cost more than 5 cents.
That was the last seen of the unfortunate
until his dead body was discovered. Tlio
jury returned a verdict of accidental death.

Considernblo ill-feeling is prevalent among
the legal fraternity of South Omaha nt the
present time. It is trnceablo to no other
wint than the appointment bjl Mayor Sloan
of Ell JJoud as city attorney. The attor

tmt n short time , and they even po so far as
o Mala that ho located in this plnco Just

with the understnnding that ho

A Conductor's Kxpcrirncc.
Conductor Cope who is in the suburban
service of .the Union I'noitlc was placed in an
embarrassing position Thursday nlghtshortly
nfti-r leaving South Omaha. Cope is one of
the few men in the employ of n railroad com-
iwny that is gentleman through and through.
His forbearance in numerous instances is
worthyof more thnn passing notice. Thursday
night his ( lunllllcations in this tespcct were
put beyond the standard of human test. In
one end of n car was a party of drummers
and in the other was a coterie of the Salva
tion army. The former party wcro telling
old time storiuH which the speakers would
occasionally intersperse with a phrase
strongly tinged with brimstone , which
seemed niucli to thodiscomliturcof the mem
bers of the other order in the opposite end.
Conductor Cope sat about midway in the car
as if in deep meditation. Finally a fctnalo
member of the Salvationists whose voice was
about as musical as that winulcss animal
they call the pig and possessing the strains
of a calliope , launched out into the song ,
"Think of the Homo Over There , " and was
promptly joined by her constituency. In
short , the tamborino was being plied with
all the electricity imaginable and the air
was fairly creaking with the noise. . Finally
Conductor Cope Uocamo disparaged and
knowing the army made its headquarters in
Council Bluffs ho slipped up to the lender and
after Hashing the danger signal for some
Isngth of time ho gained their attention.
"Well , said ho it fe all right for you to re
side over there pointing toward Council
Bluffs but yon need not mind telling us
about it , so please discontinue. "

Everything was quiet in connection with
the railway and bricklayers' ' strike in South
Omaha yesterday. Several I'inkerton
loungers walked about the Burlington yards
during the entire day , although there seemed
to be no cause for their presence. Occasion
ally the street gamin would greet them with
a cry of "rats , " but the "bravados" would
continue to patrol their beats as if
heedless of the scurrilous remarks.
As rugards thebricklayers' strike.
but slight change is noticeable. A
large number of strikers remain idle and still
refuse to go to work until the demand for
more wages is conceded , In the meantime
the town is being rapidly Jilled with non
union men from outside points who are
anxious to tlnd employment. However , it is
generally thought that the scarcity of men
will compel the contractors to advance the
scale in order to fill out the work they Invo
upon their hands. It is stated that the eon-
tractors have already taken the matter of ad
vancing the scale to the point demanded un
der consideration , and tliat the major portion ,
after carefully reviewing the circumstances
in connection with the case , decided that
some action should bo taken pointing to an
adjustment of the situation.
