Four anxious faces peered over the railing
at Judge Aylesworth yesterday morning in
police couit , and that ofllclal was not long In

The case of Fred Chambers was continued.
Fred is a boy of about eighteen summers ,
nnd dwelt in hupplncba witli bis widowed
mother at Stuart , Neb. , until she wearied of
single blessedness and again entered the
rnarried relation. Fred soon found himself
in the way , and started for Kansas , via Coun
cil Bluffs. Sunday night ho applied for
lodging at the farm house of John Hamilton ,
near the city limits , Just west of the motor
track. Ho was immediately set down as ono
of the young murderers who recently broito
Jnil in Missouri. Ho was bound to u chair ,
tied hand and foot , nnd the oftlccrs sent for.
"When they ariivcd they found the supposed
desperate criminal frightened half to death ,
with a man on each' side of him , another
standing in front with a Uoublo-barrclled
shotgun , and still another outside the house
with a similar weapon , evidently expecting
on attack by the friends of the outlaw.
Chambers was brought to the police station ,
and locked up with the vags and bums , ns he
was regarded as very dangerous. In the
morning the court sized him up as n home
sick boy , but concluded to hold him a day erse
so to see what evidence could be secured
ngainst him. The action of his captors was
much more hasty and vigorous than wise ,
but they account for it by saying they
thought they bad the right fellow , and did
not propose to let him get away. They ought
to be appointed detectives at the transfer tc
catch the confidence men.

Opening of the Itunnini * Meeting.
The first races-of the May running meet
ing will bo run to-daj at the Union driving
park , nnd all arrangements for n successful
meeting arc completed. The track ha j been
put In first-class condition , nnd very fnst
tlmo ought to ho made. Yesterday morning
ono of the flyers circled it in 1.4" , nnd the
horscnicn are confident that this will bo
beaten by nt least two seconds , although It
is very early In the season for nny record-
breaking. The track hns been carefully
ban owed nnd dragged for the past two days ,
and yesterday afternoon two tennis were
busy putting on the finishing touches.
The horsen entered for the races are in ex
cellent condition , and presented a pleasing
spectacle whllo out for thlcr morning exer
cise. It is predicted that there will bo much
guessing done boforehand'as to the results of
the llrst two day's races , as the weather has
been so unfavorable and the truck in such
muddy condition slnco the horses hnvo been
here , that botti envncrs nnd Jockeys are
entirely in ignorance as to the comparative
speed of any of the nnlmnls , nnd a few races
will hnvo to bo run before nnyono can got
anything like a "strnight tip , " but even
then the betting will bo decidedly
unccrtnln , according to some who claim to
know , as surprising speed is promised in
quarters where It is not expected. For the
past two weeks the trotters nave been con-
lined to the half-mile track , and much hard
work is being done to put the steppers In con
dition for the July meeting. Some of them
arc already booked for extensive travel this
season , among the number being the Nash
stable frotn Avoca. Mr. Nash has n four-
year-old , Baby Mine , record 2 : ! ir > , ' 4 last sea

Mayor Uobrer was rather unsettled yes
terday , not knowing whether to insist on
the carrying out of his original order to the
saloon men or not. He said ho wanted to
increase the city revenue "awful bad , " but
did not want to displease the power that
elected him. The fact of the matter is that
Mayor Ilohrer has some very line ideas in
regard to city government and fiuestions of
public linnncc , but the "bum clement , "
through its political influence has u very
strong hold upon him. Ho stated yesterday
to a BEI : reporter that the business men ol
the city had asUcd for a hearing , and had re
quested him to not shut up the saloons. The
parties interested in the now hotel project
were among the number. He said he did not
desire to close the saloons , but did want tc
replenish the city treasury. Thus far the
gambling houses have not entered into the
question , and he docs not wish to include
them in the matter. Ho says they are dis
posed of for the present , and does not wan I
them to join forces with the
saloons against him. Ho seems tc
think it imposssible to close the
gambling houses and referred to the failure
of Colonel Dailcy , the county prosecuting at
torney , to enforce his order of a few month !
ago. He said that ho wanted to please tin
majority , nnd that ns the city is democratii
ho must cater to the democratic wish.
In one thing , however , he claimed to havi
taken a solid stand , nnd that is in regard t <
Sunday business. He said that saloons , gam
bling houses and billiard parlors must b
closed on that day , but was in doubt as to tli
12 o'clock rule.
The mayor finally announced his dccisloi
that all saloons that closed at 11 o'clocl
would bo fined $25 n month and others S5C
This will close the majority of the outlvinj
saloons , and those that run will bo under con

AN AFRICAN MARKET PLACE.
A Missionary Write * Front the Congo
Free Stnto of Certain Pmilslmionts.
A few miles further on I passed
through the market place , sayy n writer
in the Bangor ( Mich. ) Hcllector , which
was a level traet of land nt the top of a
hill miles from any villages of from ton
to thirty buildings , and most of the in
habitants are slaves and owned by the
king or some chief under him. The
space was a few rods square in which
the grass was kept down by the large
gatherings of natives assembling two
elays of each week from all the surround
ing villages , the several paths from
winch center at the market ptauo , where
they bring their produce and articles of
commerce to boll or exchange. The
place was empty when I was there , bo 1
rested for a tnuo under the spreading
branches of one of the trees.
I do not think this was like the ones
Brother Nowth described as having
seen on the other sielo of the river. In
hiring a number of carriers it is usually
the custom to employ a "kapeda" ' to en
gage the requisite number of men , giv
ing him at once as many pieces of cloth
as there are men required , for-cach to
purcluibo provisions for the journey.
Ho then takes charce of the men and
becomes responsible for the safe delivery
of every load.
At one time Brother Nowth wished
about thirty carriers and engaged a
"kapcda , " but before the earn vnn started
( some person in the village having died )
this "kapcda" was accused by the witch
doctor of being the cause of the death ,
and ho wasconelcmncd to drink the basswood -
wood poison , but either ho refused to
drink it , or having drank ,
did not succumb to its ef
fect. During the night following ,
as ho wns asleep in the bed another na
tive entered and shot him. This man
who shot him was taken prisoner , and a
deep hole was dug into which ho was
placed in an upright position , the dirt
thrown all arounel him , while ho was
yet alive and then a sharpened stake
driven lengthwise through his body.
At another time a native carried his
gun into the market , which is contrary
to the rules ; ho was warned , but paying
no heed , no was buried alive , his gun
broken and stuck into the earth beside
him and a stake driven through his
body. Those stakebwhich are cut from
live limber , sprout and become trees.
Brother Nowth says he has soon several -
oral sueh growing in the market places
from the raised mounds above the dead
