A Case lu Adultery.
LINCOLN , Juno 13. [ Special t to Tun Bsn. ]
There was to bo scon in the city Jail yes
terday n haudsorao woman of about twcnty-
thrco year * of age. She walked up and
down the long corridor and in her nervous
ness and excitement on two occasions
went into spasms. About a month ago she
cnmo to this city nnd since that time has
icon living in open adultery with a man
named Henry AVcthercld , who came to the
city with hnr and has been employed as a
switchman in the Burlington yards. The wo
man's name is Mrs.Bortha Robbins of Illinois.
The police were notified by wlro to arrest
thopnrtios nnd hold them until nn officer
could arrive from Illinois to take them back.
The deserted husband expects to como with
the ofllcor and It is stated that the woman
left two little children when she deserted
tier homo to share the meagre fortunes of
the man Wethoreld , with whom she was
found. The parties from Illinois are ox-

Mnnntt Badly JMJxod.
LIKCOLX , Neb. , Juno 13. [ Special to TUB
URIC. ] In nn interview with Chancellor
Mnnntt of the university , he denied that ho
liad stated that Mrs. Lloyd was nn infidel.
Ho did not waut it printed. Tbo statement
that ho had accused the lady , who is a
chemist in the university , was corroborated
by two regents. It is not a confidential
matter that the light between Bill-
ugs and Manutt is purely pcr&onal.
It is predicted that the final
result will be the "firing" of both of thorn.
The resignation of Wing was the result of
TUB BEB'S recent investigation. It seems
that ho was ufrald that if the truth was told ,
concerning his past as superintendent , nn in
dignant people would demand his resigna
tion. The college farm , supported by the
state at an enormous expense , has always
been a failure. During the last year but
seven students attended nnd they all bore
witness , in a written statement , now in my
possession , that Wing was incompetent and
the farm a mistake. AL. FAIUDKOTUER.
A Council in Contempt.
Exnrcn , Nob. , Juno 13. [ Special Tolo-
jram to Tnn BED. ! An order from Judge
Morris to appear at Crete nnd show cause
why a peremptory writ of mandamus should
not be Issued , was served on our city council
to-day by Sheriff Carson. The court or-
dcced the council some time since to meet
and revoke Iho license to sell liquors granted
to Hurrigan & Kinny. A meeting was called
but it was shown that the written evidence
tnkcu before the board and examined by
Judge Morris had not boon certified to by the
chairman of the board. A document was
also produced by the attorney for Harrigun
& Kinny , certified to by the clerk of the dis
trict court , stathig that the case had been or
dered expunged from the records by Judge
Morris , and as it "had been done , there was
no record on the docket shoxving that such
a case had been brought before the court.
No action was taken at that meeting , hence
this order to appear at Crete Juno 18,18S8.
The Rate Question.
LIXCOLS , June 18. [ Special to THE BEE ]
Thursday of this week is the day agreed
upon by the board of transportation for a
meeting to consider the local rate question.
Four of the five members have stated that
they favor the adoption of a lower schedule
for local rates , and a great deal of interest
and attention will bo given the meeting.
Secretary Mason has prepared a now sched
ule and will ask that it bo adopted. It is
largely after the Iowa rate in force and if
passed will place Nebraska nearly on n level
with Iowa on local rates , and yet will not , for
the Iowa commissioners have recently made
an order that largely reduces present rates in
thutstato ; however , if something near the
basis of present rates in Iowa is secured it
will bo a great victory nnd of much worth to
the people of the state. Against this propo
sition of Secretary Mason , Secretary Agcr
has placed himself on record as in favor of
leaving the present rates alone , arguing , after
the style of the railroad managers , that they
are low enough and that there is no demand
for lower rates by the people. Secretary
Munger has not yet expressed himself on the
question , nnd the discussion at the coming
meeting will naturally lead to nn endorsement
of the views of cither Mr. Mason or Mr.
Ager. It is n very general opinion among
people who have advocated nnd looked for
action on the part of the board of transporta
tion that thcrols no further grounds for put
ting the question off nnd delaying action , nnd
the uontlriuous 3elays will but intensify the
rumors that there nro mumbors of tlio board
who prefer soolug nothing dona until after
the republican Ktuta convention is licld , As
a prominent republican in the stiito said to
day , "Wo want to know the record that the
present board is willing to make on the rate
question , nnd to act accordingly. "

Its first appearance in St. Paul to-day slnco
iho championship season began , and were
taken into camp by the homo team without
an effort. This was accomplished by the
surprising case with which Lorott's delivery
was sized by Iho St , Paul boys. However ,
Sis support was horrible , especially in the
Irst and ninth innings. Durycn. proved
another stumbling : block in the way of a vic
tory for Omnha. Ho hold the visitors down
io throe bona fide and two scratch hits , and
jut for Krommlor's muff of a thrown ball at
the plalo the Omaha boys would have been
shut out. Outsidd of the second inning not
an Omaha player reached third base , and
aut two got us far as"second. . Uinpiro

sitting on the bench when the ball reached
the diamond. His second homo run was a
duplicate of the first , except that tlio ball
was drove to right center. The fielding was

Mr. Halo called up Mr. Morgan's reso
lution us to tho-fishery treaty and addressed
the senate on the suttjoct. Ho declared that
the fishermen would agree to no surrender
in this ointtor , that their voices were against
the treaty. Not a vessel had
sailed from Provincetown , Gloucester ,
Marbluhead , Portland , Castino or
Booth's bay aittoo the treaty , whoso master
and crew had not sent back an execrating
protest against the treaty. Mr. Halo sjwko
of the enormous subsidies to the Canadian
Pacific railroad company , and said the course
of Gruat.Britain in mat'mat tor ought to be
xvotched with zealous scrutiny by every
Aniuricuu administration. That great road
had been built by government aid for two
purposest military and commercial. Every
thing involved , lit the Monroe doctrine was
involved in that question ; and yet no atten
tion was paid to it. In this connection Mr.
Halo critieisdd Iho action of the. treasury de

Halo's views-upon tuo subject of the fortifi

being erected with a.view to future warlike
Mr. Halo replied thot ho did not believe
that any wise British statesman contem
plated with any feeling , oxeeut apprehension ,
armed conflict with the United States. Ho
beliovca the treaty would fail. Ho was not
ono of those who believed that the subject
matter , which had a growing importance
touching the relations between the United
States and Canada , would ultimately bo set
tled without further negotiation's. Ho could
not say why it was that the American ne
gotiators Hud accepted such a treaty. Ho
feared that American negotiators in the future -
turo would bo hampered nnd embarrassed by
the concessions made in the treaty.

A. Big Minneapolis Dry Goods Firm in
Financial Straits.
MixNiMi'OLis , J'uno 13. [ Special Telegram
to TUB Ben. ] Shortwcll , Clerihew & Lath-
man , tbo Minneapolis wholesale dry goods
men , are financially ombarasseJ. The firm
suspended payment to-day aud a meeting of
the creditors has boon called. The firm bus
boon doing a very largo jobbing business.
So fur as is known it has always been con
sidered financially solid. Just what has
caused the present trouble' is rncro conjecture
to-day as the members at the firm who are
now in the city claim to bo ublo to make no
public statement us to thuir affairs. Tito
senior member , Mr. Shotwell , has boon in
the east for some time past. The firm's
financial affairs have boon entirely
under his supervision. It is said
that the first announcement of the
trouble came from him by telegraph
to Mr. Clerihew lust night nnd It was a thun
der clap to the members of the firm horo.
It is not yet known whether the firm will bo
forced to make an assignment nnd the
matter will not bo decided until Mr. Shot-
well's return.
About six weeks ago SOD of the machine
girls employed In the firm's factory went out
on n strike because of an alleged cut in
wages. Tlio factory remained practically
idle t'or three weeks. The Btriisors made
many overtures for a settlement of the dlfll-
culty. The firm refused to do auything except -
copt to take the strikers back upon the em
ployers' own terms. Then n move was made
to-havo the matter Bottled by arbitration.
The firm refused to arbitrate. Then the
labor organization took up the
girls' buttlo and a boycott was
ordered against the firm. This
bnyoott has now boon on for moro than three
weeks. Just what it 1ms had to do with the
firm's present situation is , of course , a mat
ter of conjecture. The factory 1ms been run
ning with u wliolo quota of employes dtiriug
the liibt wouk. The firm made the statement
yesterday that nearly all the striking em
ployes hud been taken back upon the linn's
terms. As iiuaras can ho learned the firm is
now carrying u stock of from $ " > 00OUO , to ? ! ,
OOJ.OOO , including the factory. Their liabili
ties uro not known. Tlio feollng among these
best acquainted with the house neons to bo
that the firm will pull through if the uastorn
creditors do not push things too hard.

Academy Exchange saloon on Douglas street.
The old quiu'rol was renewed and the two
tnuu left the saloon to "sottlo it. " They
passed around the corner and when In front
of the hank MeCarty drew his revolver and
firod. He says ho noticed Lindsay reach for
his hip pocket when in the s.iloon , uud he
didn't propose h > have the other follow got
the drop on him.
After firing tlio shot , which did no harm ,
McCarty throw his revolver down the urea
in front of the bunk and skipped back to the
Exuluu.go saloon. Lindsay got the revolver
and followed. MtCurty passed through the
saloon to the alley , and then down the alloy
to Thirteenth sti-oet , emerging very near the
place of shooting. Ho started ttoutb , but
was captured by Ofilccr Huvoy ut the corner
of Farnaui and Thirteenth streets. /
