Yesterday's Chicago Tribune says the
Maroons passed through tlioro on their way
from Kansas City to Milwaukee. The re
cent sale of Long and Lnngo to the Kansas
City club has somewhat discouraged the
boys , and several of them are getting ready
for a. general broaking-up. Hcngle , Hanra
han and Dugdale- have made arrangements ,
in case the team disoands , to go to Buffalo ,
and Coughlln to the Grcenhood it Morans of
California. Hoover docs not think much of
the present state of affairs and says ho made
a mistake when he Camu to cClik-ago. In
place ot Long and Lange , Pete Gallagher
and Pcdros have been slgued , the former as
n third baseman and the hitter as a pitcher.
The team may pull through the season , but
It Is doubtful. Now that Long , believed by
many to bo tlio star fielder of the country ,
lias buen sold , President Spalding and Cup-
tain Anson give it out that they wanted him.

Coustiililo DAwes scrvcil u warrant Issued
from Justice Searles eoutt on complaint of
County Attorney Cm Us , charging Mrs. .lolm
W. Norton with violation of tlio laws of
Kmjsa'lon two counts. The warrant was
miido out for both Moore and Mns. Norton ,
but us Moore was iilrcuily in custody it was

statute In i elation to marriages , " which

it itxen the penalty at not less Hum , " > 00 nor
more than $1,000 line , or not less than thirty
days nor more than three months imprison-
nient in the county Jail or penitentiary. If
Moore is released the warrant will then be
served upon him.
Mrs. Norton was nt once taken under cus
tody in room 42 , Just opposite Moore's room ,
with nn ofilecr guarding each room , Booth
Moore and Mrs. Norton were very much sur
prised \\hcn the warrant was re.iil. It is
believed that Mrs Norton will plead guilty
when arraigned in court , and the minimum
line will be Imposed. She immediately sent
far her attorney , Captain Johnson , and held
( | Ultc u long consultation with Mini. Mrs.
Norton , in conversation with Tin : Uii : ; re
porter soon after this warrant was served ,
said :
"It is the work of Noiton. I am satisfied
that lie has instigated this prosecution. They
want to get all the money we have , so that ,
we will bo unublu to resist their prosecu
tion. "
Moore became very much enraged nt the
new turn of affairs , nml said Unit "they
( moaning himself and Mrs. Norton ) were
getting in deeper and deeper.1
This morning , a little before the tlmo set
for thoheaimg of the habeas corpus pro
ceedings by Judge Guthrie , Moore appeared
in court , accompanied by his attorneys and
Attorney General Taylor , representing tlio
states of Missouri and Kansas. Sheriff
Fisher presented tlio warrant of the- gov
ernor issued upon the requisition of tlio gov
ernor of Missouri. Moore's attorneys said
they hud no opportunity to see the warrant
or requisition papers , -and before any fur
ther proceedings were taken they desired
to see all the papers ill the case.
The attorney general said that tno
only question upon which tlio Judge had to
liass was tlio Hiifllcioney of the warrant.
Moore's attorney disputed that question.
The Judge said the gentlemen ought to have
an op | > ortunity to o.xanune the papers fully ,
and liu would give them any rdasonnble tlmo
they desired. Moore's attorney asked that
they have until to-morrow , and the case was
continued until that time. The action of the
attorney for Moore was a complete surprise
to tilt attorneys on the other side. An
agreement was made last night between the
attorneys , and it had been settled that no i e-
sistunco would bo made to the requisition
papers , but that Moore would return to St.
Louis without making any light. Moore's
attorneys , however , have announced their
determination to nuke a tight against taxing
Moore back. The governor's warrant order
ing the arrest of Mooie , in obcdiencti to the
requisition of the governor of Missouri is
now in the hands of the sheriff. Mooro's at
torneys declare the requisition papers will
not hold good , and that on the hearing of the
habeas corpus proceedings to-morrow the
prisoner will bo released The attorneys have
up to tills morning attempted to settle the
matter without further interference of tlio
Kansas courts , but all negotiations to this
effect wore declared off this morning. Hotli
hides have become bull-headed and declare it
is n light from now on. Captain Johnson ,
Mooro's attorney , said this afternoon that
they would resort to every means to prevent
Mooro's being taken back.

Flood's Track.
PiTrsnouo , July 12. The waters that have
been sweeping the valley of the Mononga-
hcla and the valleys of its tributaries for the
last sixty hours arc again falling into their
natural channels. They leave In their track
scenes of desolation and ruin that have never
had their counterpart In the same localities.
From Pittsburg to the mountain fastness
of Randolph county , West Virginia , towns
have been ravaged , manufactories have
been inundated , boats have been sunk ,
houses and lumber have been flouted off ,
fields with wheat in shock and growing
crops have boon devastated , families forced
to the hills for shelter , and in many instances
the accumulations of years of toil and self-
denial have been lost in an hour. The losses
entailed by the Hood will not fall short
of $ J,0 < > 0,000 , a largo proportion of which
falls upon tno people of the thriving counties
of Mongolia , Marion , Taylor , Harrison ,
Lewis , Barbour , Upshur and Handolpli in
West Virginia. In Pennsylvania ttio losses
arc In the counties of Allegheny , Washing
ton , Westmoreland , Fayetto and Greene.
These Ipsses fall most heavy upon the owners
of coal property , railroad companies and
farmers. In Pittsburg proper much of the
loss fulls upon the owners of shanty boats and
boat houses. The owners of mill property
will lose largely and will have to undergo no
end of inconvenience on account of the in-
vasiqn of mills by water yesterday , the put
ting out of tires and tlio rusting and almost
ruining of valuable machinery. From points
above , millions of feet of valuable timber
and lumber have come down and have been
carried oil into the Ohio a total loss to the

by what seems to bo loving couple , happy
in the light of each others eyes In spite of the
fact that the canker worm , of divorce pio-
ccediifgs is slowly but surely tearing them
in twain. The couple is nnno other than the
much-married John Fi WiNchis and wife No.
0 , formerly Mrs. Katd Stcts > un ot Cleveland ,
O. Wilkins has for soniy tlmo cnloyed the
unenviable reputation pf a polygamist without
having professed n changeflf , heart in that
direction or taken steps to join his biethren
in Utah. The gossipsiwould have it that ho
played the part of a lovinghusband to four
women at the same time at , St. Paul last winter -
tor , and certain it is thiit'one ' wife at a time
never filled the measure of nls ca
pacity for love nnd affection. At
the instaneo of wife No. 1 last
January Wilkins was arre-Ued , charged
witli bigamy , while enjoving his honeymoon
with Mrs. Stetson Wilkins'at Fergus Falls ,
and was bronchi to this city. He was sub
sequently taken to St. Paul for trial. About
two months since Lillie Bell , Mrs , Wilkins
No. 1 , secured a deciee of divorce. She had
long ceased to loyo him and the rrcatcst re
lief of her life wna the riddance of his un
savory uiinif and his ill-omcnd pet son. Mrs.
Wilkins the latest lived , happily witli her
husband until Juno 15 , when , curiously
enough , she , too , npplled for a divorce in the
district court of Hcnnepln county. This
minor digression has not been allowed to mar
the peace and happiness of then- homo life ,
and all is merry as u marriage boll. Mrs
Wilkins claims to bo forty-five years old in
her petition , while her husband is moro than
ten years her Junior. A key to the situation
is perhaps furnished by the fact that within
several days Mrs , Stetson Wilkins has dis
posed of her farm in Otter Tall county and
the abundance of the wherewithal may have
brought back to his sixth love the wandering
affections of the fickle John S. Wilkins.

TniMDAT ) , Colo. , July 12. [ Special Tele ,
grain to THE BEK. ] Some days ago n good-
looking young man calling himself Fred
Remington , and passing for nn artist on Har
pers' Weekly , came to this city and spent
some time sketching mountain scenery in this
vicinity. Ho mingled with those of the citl-
7ons who were recently residents of New
York , and there is no reason for doubting
that ho gave his genuine natno and true rela
tion to the journal ho claimed to repiobent.
To-day ho took morphine with suicidal in
tent. Several physicians , bv means of arti
ficial respiration and hypodermic injections
of alcohol , prolonged the young man's life
until 0 o'clock this evening , when ho died.
Ho loft a will bequeathing to Miss White , a
handsome young milliner of this city , whoso
acquaintance he made a few days after his
arrival hero , some ? 4.00U , and setting apart

to Urn Journalists' home , nnd 31,000 to the
hired help on his father's farm. He also
wrote a letter to his father , u banker , asking
him to grant Miss White a position In his
bank , as she was capable and worthy. Just
what transpired , If anything , between him
and the young lady is not at this tiinn known.
Humor has it that lie fell madly In love with
her , and she , refusing to listen to his vows of
love , caused him to commit suicide. Another
rumor is that ho has been 111 for a couple of

Adjourned Council Meeting.
The city council met in adjourned session
last night to consider the city hall , jail and
library ordinances. A large number of in-
tqresled spectators were presdnt.
Air. Hascall opened the ball by saving that
inasmuch as it Was a hot evening to dlscu s
such important measures as were to come before -
fore the council , he would move an adjourn
ment until Saturday.
Mr. Ford was instantly on his feet with nn
intimation that four or Jlvo members were
trying to bulldote a job through the council ,
but needed delay , and ho wanted to do the
business for which the council was called.
He wanted the members put on record.
Mr. said that the minority were trying
to pusli the matter to nn issue because cer
tain members \vero absent , but if the gentlemen -
men wanted a test of strength he was ready.
Mr. Ford retorted that ho know nothing of
these ordinances until they were read Tuea-
day nicht. He wiw ready to give the people
of Omaha a chance to say what they want.
Whoever objects must have a nigger in the
fence , and the skulduggery ought to bo
stopped. "Let us put two distinct propositions
before the people , and if they vote for a hole
in the ground , well and good. "
Mr. Leo said that the ordinances were ev-
pressly intended to give the people a chunco
to express their wishes.
Mr. Hascall said tin was satisfied the pub
lic building ordinances were not in shape to
please cither party. Botli wanted the public
library embodied in the city hall , and botli
wanted the Jail in a separata building. Ho
inodiHed his motion to have the ordinances
rcXerred to the committee of the whole ,
which , ho said , would give all the members
time to Hx up their schemes.
The Hascall motion was carried by the. fol
lowing vote : Ayes Alexander , Hoyd , Has
call , Kaspar , Kierstcad , Leo , Lowry. Snyder -
dor , VanCump , Bechel 10. Nays Bailey ,
Cheney , Couiisoman , Ford , Kitchen , Man-
The spectators ami flvo or six councilmen
made a wish to get out of the overheated
room , andscveial motions wcru made to have
the sorgeant-at-arms bring bicic the vanish
ing onicials. Councilman Lowry capped llio
climax by calling to Councilman Kaspar :
"If you don't come insldo the rail , so help
me John llogcrs , I'll go witli tlio north pait
of town' "
The plea had the desired effect. The chair
refused to put the motions , ns a peed work
ing quorum remained. The council then took
up miscellaneous business.
The board of public works was ordered to
make a contract with J. B. Smith As Co , for
p iving the intersection of Sherman avenue
and Wirt and Twenlh-fourth and Wlrt.

Claims < > l Indiana VutcrniiR.
IxiiiAVAi' Ind. , July 12 | Spcclal Tele
gram to Tin : Bic.l-An : extraordinary increase
in the pay rolls of the Indianapolis pension
agency has given rise to the suspicion that
the department Is giving special attention to
the work of rusliing through the claims of
Indiana petitioners with the hope Unit this
activity will be helpful to the democratic
party at the next election. Since General
Black became pension commissioner the
number of pensioners on the pay-rolls of the
Indiana agency lm increased from 20,003 to
40,000 , and during the fiscal year ending on
Juno ! > 8 there were 5.1P6 names added to the
rolls many more than in neighboring states ,
the oflleial report showing that the increase
in Illinois last year was 'j.siKl. It lias become
necessary for the disbursing agent to Increase
his force of clerks , but even with tlio addi
tional assistance the men have been required
to work at night for several weeks. It is
said Unit many pensions have been rushed
through without proper examination of the
records , some of them being allowed in less
than the time usually required , and before
all the proof hi support of the claims had
been filed.
