Dn WITT , Neb. , May 1. [ Special Tele
gram to tlio Br.n.J Yesterday afternoon ,
when the train arrived from the south , thcro
.nllghtcd n sleek looking young man , about
twenty-eight years of age , light complexion
nnd weighing about ono hundred nnd fifty
pounds , carrying In'hts hand n small satchel
'on which was n bundle strapped containing
three or four pairs of pants. Over his
shoulder ho carried on overcoat loosely. Ho
nt once proceeded to offer the contents of his
bundle for sale at prices much below the
wholcsnlo cost of such articles. Pants
" \vbrth $0 to $8 ho sold for $1.150. His plan was
" to dispose of his goods to anybody and every
body on the street for whatever ho could get.
At the clothing stores ho visited ho claimed
ho wanted to buy pants , and at the store of
' O. A. Hunt ho succeeded in getting n ft ) pair
under his overcoat while the clerk's back
Was turned. In n short time the garment
was missed nnd steps wcro at once taken to
find it. The discovery was made , but it was
> n the possession of n saloonkeeper , who had
Jiaid the stranger sovcnty-fivo cents nnd a
bottle of' whisky for them. Mr. Hunt
had him arrested at once for petit larceny ,
nnd at his trial to-day ho gnvo his name ns
ilolui Kelly , of St. Joseph , Mo. , and claimed
ho got the pants from'n traveling man. The
Justice thought the statement a little
"washy , " nnd as ho could not give a satisfac
tory account of the transaction ho fined him
$12 and costs nnd ten days in the county Jail.
The bundle ho brought with htm no doubt ho
had stolen from merchants aloug the line ,

Fruit Not Injured.
HASTINGS , Neb. , May 1. [ Special to the
BEE. ] The recent storm in this region was
unprecedented nt this season of the year for
the extreme cold that prevailed during the
f/imo. The tender young sprouts of trees
hnd shrubbery were enveloped in a thick
Coating of ice. This was at first regarded as
ft death blow to nil blossoming fruit , espec
ially to onrly plums , currants and gooseber
ries. The most welcome and agreeable
change yesterday to warm and pleasant
weather has afforded opportunity to examine
the fruit blossoms , and form an estimate of
the probable datnago incurred. It is assorted
by experienced and well-informed persons
Dhnt there is no cause for serious alarm.
Apples are not far enough advanced to bo
injured , ana the damage to other fruits will
bo nominal only.

Cv McCooK , Nob. , April 21) ) , To the Editor of
thoBeii : Your Washington correspondence
of the liith of March represents the acting
commissioner of the general land office us
stating that I had been removed from my
position as special agent , for the reason thut
it was necessary or desirable to reduce the
number ot special agents , and that from n
table of reports it was shown that duriug the
'last few months the number received from
mo did not compuro favorably with others in
tlmt respect. The acting commissioner
cither know , or should Imva known , that
some now ugunts had Just , been appointed at
the time of the interview , ami hciu'o his
Statement was disingenuous. Applying the
rule of falsus in uuo , fulsus In omnibus , it
vould bo unnecessary to go farther in
answer to his statements.
Yet nuy man iu his senses would under
stand thut tlio number of reports is no
criterion of an agent's efficiency , particularly
where ho was engaged most of the time on
hearings , as I have boon for the past nlno
months. These tables are prepared by tlio
head of a division who illustrates tlio civil

It was known to you , Mr. Editor , that the

move- without them. So far as 1 am advised ,
none were obtained.
It was also notorious that n prominent land
grabber from lllinojs was In ' Washington

referred to. In view of this combination nnd

The Omnlm nnd Minneapolis teams plnycil
their second gaino yesterday afternoon ,
which resulted as the first In n slgnnl victory
for the liomo club. The weather was ox-
ccrixbly raw nnd dtsngrconblo , nnd tlio nt-
tondanco , ns a consequence , small. How
ever , those who did bravo the chilly winds
were amply repaid , ns the game , so far as
Omaha % vns concerned , was highly cnjo.vablo ,
Botti teams acquitted themselves with much
credit In the Hold , while the Omahas made a
great record for themselves with the stick.
Sovcntcen hits with a total of thirty bases
will do for ono day , nnd a cold day at that.
O'Connell did himself proud , pounding Mr.
Klopf for n two-bagger , two thrco-baggers and
a homo run. Miller and Uurdlck also uindo
a thrco-b.igRor each , and every man hit the
ball safe one or moro times , with the excep
tion of Wilson. The latter , though , fully
inado up for his failure to get on to the Gor
man twlrler by his brilliant work behind the
bat. But In n game as perfect as this ono
wa % It would bo Invidious to particularize.
There was but one error made , and that was
an excusable one , being 11 fumble of a hard
hit grouiuler by Dornn. It must not bethought
thought that because the Omahas ran up
their score to double numbers that the vis
itors played n poor game , for they did not.
The fact that the Omahus mmlo ten earned
runs is proof that It was not Inmo work on
"thol * part , but a tremendous batting achieve
ment on the part of the local players. In the
eighth Mr. Klopf fairly lost his breath. It
was blflf , smash , bang , until every marooned
hosed lad had had a smack at him , and when
the smoke rolled by four runs loomed up on
the score board. At the end of this Inning ,
the Minneapolis being hopelessly In the roar ,
and the audience executing a war dunce In
the grand stand to keep from freezing , Man
ager Gooding suggested that the game tcr
