Omaha Succeeds in Shutting Out

InR Contest For the
First Iltooit Tor Onmlm.
The championship season of 1SS3 1ms at
last been opened upon the local grounds. Tha
Omaha and Minneapolis teams succeeded In
playing their Initial gnmo yesterday after
noon , .and doiplto the fact that the recent
copious rains had loft the grounds soft and
unreliable , and that the temperature was ol
an. Intensity that rendered heavy Overcoats
and fur collars acceptable , the boys played a
nmgnlfldcnl game a game that is not likely
to bo duplicated In many a day , The Omahaa
hold n , caucus * Sunday night nnd agreed upon
a plan to Chicago the artlo explorers yester
day. Lovctto was in the chair nnd the ses
sion was held with closed doors and the
secret was well kept.
Tno wind was blowing razor-blades when
the lambs from Minneapolis shipped upon
the emerald llo'ld to indulge in preliminary
practice. They were full of hope and frisk-
Incss. They llttlo suspected that the foxy
Omahogs had set n trap for them.
But let us sco how they foil in the trap.
For six straight Innings the Omahas were
retired gnfccfully without making n tally ,
notwithstanding they succeeded In getting
men oil the bases In the second , third , fourth
and sixth Innings , and played Just us If they
were trying to moke n run.
' But they weren't that was only part of
* their scheme to load the unsophisticated
Mlnncsotans on by degrees , and make them
think they had n chance to win.
Remember , however , they kept killing off
the rod-legged heroes from the homo of the
rtolnr bear as fast us they stepped up to the
plate for Just as many innings. The visitors
scorned in great glee , whllo tno Omnhas were
laughing In their sleeves.
Things were running Just ns they intended.
The seventh inning camo. This was tlio
moment to spring the trap. Shannon , Just to
sort of tlcklo them n bit before the climax ,
agitated the air three times In succession nnd
went and curled up in his buffalo. Then
Doran stepped up , and the flrst ball Parsons
fired nt him lie smacked it square on the
trade mark for n couple of bags.
The nudlcnco hero wnrmcd up In
spite of the raw atmosphere.
Then Doran ran down to third
On a passed ball , nnd trotted across the plate
after Wilson's long fly had settled in Jovno'a
Omaha 1 , Minneapolis 0.
Manager Goodlng looked end , so did his
weary men.
Acnln the home team blanked their oppo
nents , nnd were themselves whitewashed in
the eighth. In the ninth , however , O'Connolt ,
who played the whole gnmo llko a three-
time winner , walked right up to the bat and
before Mr. Parsons know what had happened ,
the ball went flying over the right field fence ,
and O'Connoll waltzed merrily round the
bases aud homo , nmidst nn outburst of cheers
from the frantic crowd.
The Minneapolis boys were dumbfounded.
No matter what they attempted they were
foiled by the scheming Omahogs.
Two hundred spectators finally buttoned
Up their overcoats nnd went "homo In high
„ spirits , for Captain Shannon nnd his untamed
; > , colts had two runs , whllo Minneapolis had
" only nn unbroken chain of largo and Juicy
goose eggs.
The oillclal score will bo found appended.
It will give a clearer idea of this model
game :

Ancient Civilization.
An El Paso. Tox. . dispatch to the St.
Louis Glebe , says : Surveyors who are
examining the route proposed for a rail
road from Doming , In Now Mexico , to
Janoa , iu the state of Chihuahua , and
from there to some point on the Pacific
coast , have gone already as far as the
old Spanish presidio ot Janos , which Ss
in the midst of the wild Sierra Madre
of Mexico , ono of the least known dis
tricts of North America , but evidently
the seat of an undent civilization of
which no authentic record has comedown
down to the present day. In a canyon
which was passed through by the sur
veying party , a succession of dwellings
were cncouivtorcd stretching along for
miles , and being "built up in terrace
form , one above the other , with solid
masonry unlike the crude and pigmy-
like clill-dwollers of Arizona and Now
Mexico. The dwelling had more the
appearance of regular streets , being
built above each other on the shelv
ing declivity of the canyon , aud being
difficult of access , as if it had boon done
for purposes of defense against power
ful enemies. Most of the buildings
have' their front walls constructed
of hewn stonc carofullycomcntodwhile
the roar portions are built into the sides
of the canyon. All of these ruins are in
a remarkable state of preservation , so
much so that they deserve moro the
name of abandoned dwellings than of
After this canyon is passed and the
open country reached , an isolated moun
tain of symmetrical proportions is
reached , on the summit of which the
ruins of a. gigantic stone structure are
encountered , the appearance of which
indicates that it was either a temple or
the palace of a king. A portion 01 tho&o
ruins consist of a very hard concrete.
At the foot of this mountain are substan
tially constructed terraced structures ,
plainly showing the existence in former
times of an extensive system of irriga
tion and storage of water. The country
for many miles in all dircctionBCOntains
Btono relics , such as melatcs or stone
tables , with aprropiato posllos for the
grinding of maize , stone hammers-vari
ous household utensils , and , in some in-
Btances , bronze tools of such extraordin
ary Imrdnosi and temper that they are
equal to modern stool tools. Wherever
the ground is turned up thobo relics nro
found iu unfailing abundanco. The
neighboring Indians know of thcso evi
dences of a former civilixatian. The be
lief id that the king of all the Monlozu-
mus lived on tlio top of that mountain ,
but at what time and what his name was
they did not know.
Private Theatricals.
The passion for private theatricals ,
says the Chicago Journal , has noyor
been so strong in certain circles us it is
just now , and it is n common sight on
public conveyances to observeyoung
jiooplo of olthcr BOX with their noses
buried deep in thin , closely printed
books , that the initiated know contain
the play that is for the time being
under study. A young man thus en
gaged , as a rule , endeavors to conceal
hia occupation from his follow passen
gers , ho fixes his oycs closely on the
pngo before him , and does not allow his
lips to move , Not BO the girl of the
period , howovor. She makes no pro-
toubo of concealment. At intervals of
throe minutes her bright eyes are raised
from the book and the speech just com
mitted to memory is mumbled forth in
an often quite audible uudorlouo. If
6ho has a companion with her the other
occupants of tno car nro fortunate , for
it ie ton to ono they will bo entertained
with a trcutiso of the past triumphs nnd
future aspirations of the "club" of which
the fair student is g , member with a
glowing description of the student's
' 'part" and the gowns that nro to grace
it thrown in. By the time her street is
reached half the ether ladies in the car
nro sneering superciliously , and all the
tnon nro wishing devoutly that they
were going to appear in the jriay.

How ProtocUqji Ohokos Out the
i _
Sir. Cnmion Intimates That the Secre
tary IB Connoted With the
Grout Mojj'i > o1y The Inter
nal Kdvffuuc System.
WASHINGTON- , April 80. The house wont
into committee of the whole on the tariff bill
nnd was addressed by Mr. Qrosvonor of
Ohio. It was strange , Mr. Qrosvcnor said ,
that the democratic party , led by that ama
teur statesman , the president of the United
States , suddenly has become the champion of
the Internal revenue Bystom. For twenty
years the gentlemen representing the south
ern states had not only denounced the gca *
oral system of internal revenue , but had op
posed all efforts of the government to enforce
the law and has so thoroughly educated the
people of the south Into the belief that the
system was Jtyrnnnous that they had bulldod
up n great sentiment In the south that to dp-
feat and violatd nnd destroy that system by
fraud nnd violence and bloodshca and mur
der was but the assertion of the
God-given right of rebellion against
the tyrannous enactment of n ty
rannous government. Now the democratic
party , directed by the message of the presi
dent , ordained that the most sacred monument
ment of taxation In this country was now ,
and must bo In the future , the Internal rove-
n uo system.
Discussing briefly the speech of the gen
tleman from Minnesota ( Mr. Nelson ) ho said ,
when the gentleman undertook to put repub
licans who favored the repeal of the Internal
revenue law into the category of being In
favor of frco whisky nnd frco tobacco , ho
made a great mistake. The proposition to
repeal the tax on whisky was to remit the
power of taxation to the states nnd to permit
the states to take the place of the general
Hcgarding the tariff , ho said , the mission
of statesmen was to sco that the laboring
men of this country should hnva n great deal
higher wages than the laboring man of other
countries. The prosperity of the country
had met with no check until Mor
risen menaced the Industries of the
United States. The disaster which was
threatened by the Morrison bill would bo
quadrupled by the passage of the Mills bill.
Ho looked for the restoration of the repub
lican party to power ; the party which had
laid deep and strong the foundation upon
which the great tariff structure had been
bulkted ; the party had grown wiser by the
assaults made upon the system by its enemies.
and It would then bo able to roburnlsh and
rebeautify the magnificent structure whioh
was to-day the pride and glory of the Ameri
can citizen.
Mr. Raynor of Maryland dla not think that
the duty on glass should bo reduced to the
extent proposed inr the bill , but no matter
how the bill came from the democratic party
ho would vote for it. Ho would follow his
great party ou thi. % great issue. Ho had
no right joto lopk to the industry
in his district when the question
before the country was whether the system-
ntie plan of robboryand plunder was to bo
continued. , j
Passing to the question of trusts , he said
unless herolo steps. . were taken to impede
their advance , privatOjenterprises woulu bo
seriously affected and the prices of the prin
cipal commodities of the country arbitrarily
fixed. The Standard , oil trust was ouo of
fraud , corruption and oppression.
Mr. Cannon , of Illinois , inquired whether
the gentleman did not know the present ad
ministration had appointed ono of tno princi
pal representatives of _ the Standard oil com
pany at least by relation , if not otherwise
secretary of the navy nnd that another rep
resentative was a senator from Ohio.
Mr. Rayner believed ho could vouch
for Secretary Whitney -that ho had not
the slightest connection with the Standard
oil trust , but it did not make any
diffcVonce who was. connected with it. it was
the greatest fraud upon the people that had
ever been perpetrated. If the democratic
party struck down monopolies it would re
ceive , under the leadership of him who-lcd it
now , and who was us fearless a foe as cor
ruption ever encountered , the renewed fealty
of the people.
Mr. Henderson of Iowa said the president
had thrown the gauntlet at the feet of pro
tection and stood boldly up as the champion
of free trade. Ho criticized , the bill as crip
pling where It should support , and tearing
down where It should build up. Ho warned
the laboring men against any party , presi
dent or law-maker whoso acts would quicken
the trade of England , while In a comparative
aegrco it would check the manufacturing in
dustries of their own country.
Adjourned. _
Senate. %
WAOIIIXOTON , April 80. Mr. Stewart in
troduced a bill to require the purchase and
coinage of not loss than $1,000,000 worth of
silver bullion per month. Ho satdtho bill in
volved no now principle and asked it bo read
a first and second time nud laid ou the table.
It was so ordered.
Mr. Stewart also offered a resolution call
ing on the secretary of the treasury nnd the
director of the mint for a variety of informa
tion regarding the purchase of silver bullion
since the passage of the silver coinage act ;
also the prices paid foreign coin values , etc.
The resolution offered last week by Mr. Halo
calling ou the secretary of the interior for
information ns to appointments in his denait-
mout below the civil service grade since
March , 18S5 , was adopted.
The scnato then proceeded to the considera
tion of the railroad land forfeiture bill.
Mr. Paddock offered an amendment pro
viding nothing iu the net -should bo con-
? trued as limiting the rights granted to pur
chasers or settlers by the forfeiture net of
March 8 , 1SS7 , or as repealing , altering or
amending that net. Adopted.
The international copyright bill was then
taken ui > , nnd after some debate and the
adoption of minor amendments went over.
The senate then adjourned.

From a Paris letter : The world-re
nowned ! Bon Murcho , on the -south side
of the Seine , is a marvelous establish
ment. As you enter sit this season you
cannot bufbo a mazed with the decora
tions nnd beautiful coloring nround
you. The store is built with immense
well rooms , with three galleries extend
ing around them , covered with a gl\ss
roof. The many winding stairways ,
with handsome railings , are decorated
with fancy lamps , Japanese umbrellas
nnd novelties of nil description ; , Sus
pended from the galleries to the cen
tral clmnuollors are any ribbons in ( > 11
shades , nnd rows ol parasolfl in rod ,
whitennd blue , borddrod with Inco ,
hong from sldo to sido. The artificial
flowers cannot bo equalled. They are
arranged in the most natural inimnor ,
wnoLK rixvton IIKBS
nro represented growing in moss , nnd
soiuo of the imitations nro so perfect
that ono is tempted to stop nnd inhnlo
their frngranco. Thor"o is n section of
the store reserved for these beautiful
flowers , and ns many artificial plants aroused
used as decorations in Paris , there is a
line display of begonia nnd all the spring
blossums in plant form.
_ Next to these are ostrich feathers in
richest shades nnd in such quantities
that the eye is dnzzlod , while nbovo nro
fans , fine in texture and qjcquisilo In
shade. The spring bonnets attract
much notice nnd well they should , ' for
they nro little marvels in their wny.
Every afternoon at 3 strangers are taken
through the entire establishment , so wo
made our way to the reading-room to
join the party gathered for tlmt purpose.
is largo , with coiling decorated with
statuary nnd paintings , with masses of
gilt , much resembling the magnificent
rooms soon at the Louvre Gallory. At
the sldo nro paintings , to suit nil tastes ,
no rich frames , while elegant orna
ments adorn the mnntlopiocos.
The doors , resembling arches load
to balconies from which n fine
view of the wonderful store is obtained.
The table , extending the length of the
room , was crowded with persons busily
rending papers , published iu nil lan
guages , while sotno were writing1 on
pads , with a case before thorn of paper
and envelopes , stamped "Bon Marcho. "
At ono end of tlicToom wo noticed a me
morial to Mndnmo Boucicnut in ivory ,
within a harp nnd resting upon purple
At last the time arrived for the com
pany to start on their tour of inspection
nnd n man passed middle-ago announced
that ho was rcnny to escort us. Ho was
nmodol Frenchman , with just the airs
nnd graces and the facility to strike im
posing attitudes , which marks the na
tion as a class. Ho called our attcnion
to a largo banner of velvet , with rows
of medals id silver and gold , explaining
that there was a course in
frco to omploycsnnd that thcso rewards
were given to the deserving at the end
of the year. The professor in English
names the host scholars , and thov are
sent to England to remain six months ,
in order to perfect themselves in the
language , their expenses boingpaid by
the establishment. This may account
for the number of clerks who speak
English. The Frenchman told us that
Maillard , the American confectioner ,
first gave him the idea of showing the
public the entire etoro , by sending a
card , asking him to escort seine Ameri
can ladies through the establishment.
The company wo joined numbered
thirty-six , but wore unnoticed passing
* hrough the long galleries , already so
Wo came to a room entirely lined
with mirrors , nnd small tables , covered
with green cloth , was all that could bo
scon. In a moment the heavy curtains
were drawn and darkness prevailed ,
when much to our surprise , the leader
pulled a cord , and numerous gas jets
throw a brilliant light from reflectors
placed behind them. Wo soon found
that hero
and the mirrored walls gave an oppor
tunity to the fair BOX to select the most
becoming tints. Wo ascended the steps
leading to the highest galleries. Hero
an unsurpassed view of the store was
obtained , and the gorgeous decorations
shown forth as far as the eye could
roach. The ono court below us was as
spacious as many a largo storo. It is
often used as a concert hall , and when
thus required three hundred clerks
clear it of its furnishings in two hours.
At the last concert noted singers from
the grand opera offered their services ,
but usually the performers are restricted
to employes , and the cards of admission
arc given to their friends. There are
at present 3,300 employes in this estab
lishment , and as all breakfast and dine
on the upper floor
nro most intorosring to visit. The
cooks , twelve in number , were long ,
white aprons and caps. The steve was
fully eight yards in length and proportionately
tionately wide , and was covered with
immense soup and vegetable caldrons ,
for the dinner was well under way. The
bill of faro consisted of soup , meat , ono
vegetable , salad and wine. There were
four immense machines , ono to out car
rots , another to prepare potatoes , and a
third to mash onions , while the fourth
was used to slice bread for soup. There
our escort stopped , and taking a hand
ful of thin slices , dropped thorn one by
ono , saying they much resembled tor
chen lace. At the sides the cooks were
busy cutting the meat ready for the
grille , which holds 800 chops at a time ,
and besides it was an ingenious inven
tion for frying potatoes. A tack of
them were thrown in at ono end ,
and by revolving a cylinder they
are fried anil pass out ready
for use. Above our heads Avas nn ele
vated rend to transport the enormous
cauldrons from ono part of the kitchen
to another , many of them weighing 400
pounds. The pantry was largo ; you can
judge of its size when told that 25,000
plates and Uottlcs are washed daily in
the great tanks. Across the hall was
which would fully assure you that this
red fluid was a favorite ono with the
French. Each por&on is allowed ; i little
moro limn a pint and a half , so that
2,500 quarts are daily consumed. Wino
bottles lined the wall , covered the ta
bles , nndro were told that in no school
or pension was such wine served. Tlio
dining room was a model of order , neat
walnut tables extended the entire w idth
of the room , This room is used for the
men , while beyond is the refectory for
womonwith mahogany tables and cano-
seated ohnlra , A third room Is used bj
Ihoso who Imvo loaning positions in the
store , but thamenu is the anmo for nil.
On the wnlla were coses divided by par
titions , each containing a napkin , and
throughout the whole building perfect
order nnd system prevailed. Every pro
vision hna been made for the safety of
nil employes in case of fire.
BfcWo now passed through n hall to a
room which amused us much. In ono
corner were two men , ono before n
Btrnngo looking instrument , mod to
clean 3,800 knivqs , whllo n mnn nt his
sldo wiped the samo. Ilot-o were scaled
men in blue blouses , having great bags
of potatoes besidb thorn , onch busy with
his knlfo paving this favorite vogota
blo. As our party stood looking at
them many u smile was exchanged
among the peelers ! , and the man polish
ing knives flourished them in the air to
show their shining qualities. Next to
this was the workmen's and coachmen's
refectory , nnd wo nrrivcd In time to boo
them at their dinner. Thcso have
throe meals daily , and they eoomcd to
enjoy their repast nnd paid llltlo atten
tion to the foreigners gazing nt them.
There was n small room used for mak
ing tea 'nnd colTco , whllo those who are
indisposed have tisane furnished , a
drink much used hero for invalids. A
doctor is dally in attendance , and all
employes can consult him frco of charge.
Four barbers nro also busy
every morning shaving the men
nnd arranging the coiffeurs of
some of tlio women. There was ono
largo room devoted to receiving and
carrying out orders for foreign lands
and throughout Franco. Thcso amount
on an average to 6,000 a day. Of course
this does not include Paris.
We descended four flights of stairs
and crossed the street to see the apart
ments provided for girls without parents
and who are earning a livelihood in the
"Bon Marcho. " wo passed through along
corridor lined on either side with neat ,
square rooms , each containing ono
window , nicely curtained , n single bed ,
wardrobe , wasnstnnd and chnirsof dark-
stained wood , without spot or blemish ,
and polished floors. On the mantle-
pieces wore pretty clocks and ornaments ,
and they were such rooms as any ono in
any station of life would find most com
fortable. Fuel is furnished to the occu
pants every Sunday. In this house
there are 125 rooms , while Madame
Boncicaut , the proprietress of the immense -
monso establishment provides accommo
dations f of others in adjacent buildings.
At the end of the corridor was
having four windows , gilded chande
liers , red velvet furniture , piano , pretty
tables and a handsome bookcase. The
girls who live hero must bo unprotected
by any ono in Paris , They nro not per
mitted to go out evenings without
special permission. No gentlemen
callers are allowed , but nevertheless
many nmrriaees tuke place among the
employes. Every comfort is provided ,
as well as the watchful eye to guido
thorn and shield them from harm.
The courtyard of this building is

CHICAGO , April 30. [ Special 'Telegram
to the UKK.I Knln came nt last nnd nlno n
day of n very small decrease in tlio vUlblu
supply of wheat , both supposed to bo boorish
Influences , butuiwa them , or pot-Imps In Aplta
of them , wheat advanced ltfc. It scorned to
bo precisely the cnae of too unanimous opin
ion In ono direction producing an exactly op
posite result from what was expected. At > out ,
everybody who believed In wheat and wanted
to buy some , had been waiting for n week for
rain which Miould lower values , and cnublo
them to fret It at n little better prleo. A
good many commission men had been advls
ing such n course nnd it looked reasonable.
Local traders had sold short in anticipation
of rain and n consequent broiiV.
Accordingly when the market opened
first Rales could only bo niado nt
n decline of about Jc from Saturday's '
closing figures , nnd there was even a llttlo
further decline , but buying orders were In
tlio majority , nnd this decline from Saturday
was soon recovered. Then there wa n re
action nnd another small advance , but no
very rapid movement until after the the an
nouncement of thodccroasoof ICP.OOObunhoh
In visible supply. This was immediately
followed by n drop of * < @ ) o nnd then nn ad
vance began which continued almost without
reaction to the extent of Ic. There was only
n slight decline nnd the close wa * almost nt
the top prices of the session. Selling on the
ndvanco seemed to bo chiolly by local ncalp-
ors , nnd it was also said Unit foreigners were
Belling. Buying was qnito general , almost
every commission house doing seine of it and
two of the heaviest local boars were credited
with large buying through brokers to cover
shorts. Trade wan very largo and some of
the local bulls were taking advantage of the
situation nnd ofttho comfortable position iu
which former purchases had placed
them to bid prices up on the
frightened shorts. The bearish influences
have been mentioned nbovo. They
had been largclv discounted during the latter
part of the week. The bull news wan chiefly
concerning the coming crop , but some of it
was new atid startling. A report from Cali
fornia said that the crop in the San Jouquin
valley was ruined and that wheat had ad-
vanred 15 per cental in San Franmco in con-
aefiucnce. That was bullish enough for thp
west coast. Then came nn estimate undo by
the best known of Chicago crop experts that
the crop cast of the Kocky mountains would
run 84,000,000 bushels less than last year.
These were undoubtedly the influences that
scared the shorts to-day , and to help the up
turn came a report that twenty-five loads of
hard wheat hud been worked for export iu
New York to-day. Juno wheat opened at
SI We , sold early nt Sl&c , then upto82c.
baek to 81c , then up to 83c , back to 825/ @
8JJ < ci ul' t ° 8yc again and closed at 1 o'clock
at82@S3c. May wheat opened nt 80ic ,
soldatM'iO and up to Sl c , closing all
o'clock tit 81@Slc.
The corn market opened lower , both on ac
count of larger receipts than were expected
and rain. The weakness was short lived ,
however , us it was found wbeu t > omo of the
May shorts attempted to cover on the last
opportunity before delivery day that thcro
was very llttlo for sale und the price was
soon bid up. Then , too , the unexpected and
sharp advance iu wheat had a
inp influence on this market , although it
withdrew attention from It to some extent.
Tlio visible supply statement showed nil In
crease of corn of 849,000 bushels. Juno corn
opened at&J3 c , which wasKo under Satur
day's closing- , advanced to 54 (354J ( c , back
to 54 } c , then up to 55) c , back to and clos
ing at 1 o'clock dt. 5455c. May corn
opened nt 54Tt.'UJi ( , sola at 54J oupto5Co
and closed at Wc.
There was unusual excitement in the spec
ulative oats market nt the opening , the rain
causing a sharp decline. First sales were
uiado at about Ko lower prices than at the
close on Saturday nnd a further decline Im
mediately followed. At the bottom , how
ever , Norton & AVorthington were free buy
ers and continued to king the offerings
until the loss was entirely recovered except
for the now crop option. May oats opened at
82c , sold at 'Alc. up to nnd closing at B e.
June oats opened at32c , sold atfll c , up to
and closing at tUc. July oats sold from 3Jo
to 31 c , to 321 0 , closing at that price.
August oats opened at US c , sold at SSk1 ®
2hc. up to 2sc , which price was asked af
the close. September oats sold up from 270
to ' 'S&c.
In provisions the bull sldo was regarded
with the greatest favor. The opening was u
little uncertain , but buyers soon found it
necessary to advance their vows to iiiduco
holders to consider their offerings , nnd higher
prices became the rule. Based on Saturday's '
closing the day's actual advance in pork was
