She was the queen. She was seated

The City Has Falrmount.
Park Commissioner Graham yesterday
laid a document on the county recorder's
desk with a request to have it duly recorded.
An examination of the instrument showed
that it was a quit claim deed conveying to
him thirty-three lots In what is now Fair-
mount park.
Is it possible that Park Commissioner Grn-
1mm has Joined the guny of grubbers , and is
bunt on wresting the beautiful Falrmount
park from the city i
It looks so.
In the same bundle of documents in which
this deed was placed appears another , a quit
claim , covering other lots In the park , and in
this deed the city Is the ono which acquires
whatever real or fancied rights the signers
of the deed have heretofore hold.
Tb cre's something up.
Tnu 13KB , to satisfy the curiosity of Its
readers , has been making inquiries , ami
learns that Commissioner Graham has been
really acting in tba interests of the city. He
has been gutting quit claims on a large portion
tion of the lots In the park , in order to quiet
all possible trouble about title. Ho Is said to
have already proiwred a deed conveying to
the elt ? the rights which ho hiu thus secured ,
and. that when the propel1 time comes , and
those who howl , howl notnorc , ho wilt convey
to the city , thus making the city's title all

This will rather complicate affairs for
those who are seeking' to make the city glvo
up Fnlrmount park , to buy them something
to < | iiie.t titles. The city now has In various
Ways an undisputed title to more than half
the lotIn Falrmount park , and the light over
the others Is said to have no very hopeful
look for these who arc opposing the city's in

A Call From KniiHni City.
Kev. ( " 5. W. Crofts , pastor of the Congre
gational church of this city , has received a
very llatterlng call to become pastor of a
chtinh in Kansas City. The call In ono sense
cannot he rightly termed Muttering , for the
reverend gentleman has ability and char
acter sunicicnt to till nny of the Kansas City
pulpits. Council Bluffs can hardly spare him
just yet , und not only his church , but the
community ut large , saints and slnifers ,
would protest against his removal from this
city. It is not known what answer Mr.
Crofts will make to the call , which Is very
urgent , und in some respects rather tempt
ing. Ho hns been absent from the city , nnd
hence his views on the mutter cannot bo
given now. It Is gratifying to his uianj
friends and admirers to Have his worth rcc-
ogni/cd by such a call , but they confidently
hope that he will not deem it best to accept.

The Mayiio Inane.
The seizure of C. E. Mayno's horses and

river , was to bo accompanied by n UKO seiz
ure of whatever could bo found belonging to
him on this side. It was supposed that he
iad a large number of horses over hero , nnd
an Omaha attorney was over hero to see
about the matter. He arranged with Sheriff
O'Neill to serve the papers , and the sheriff
and a deputy waited for some hours for the
attorney to got the writ. The bonds re-
luired were for (40,000 , nnd the attorney
spent some time among his acquaintances se
curing tneso , and finally had to give it up.
He found that it would bo necessary llrst to
70 over to Omaha , and so gave directions to
let the affair rest until ho informed the
sheriff differently. Up to ( i o'clock last evening -
ing Sheriff O'Neill had heard nothing mom
about it. Mr. Mayno , who was quietly restIng -

Ado About Nothing.
it Is amusing to note how stories grow in
the political season. The Council Bluffs folks
can appreciate the following sample , which
is going the rounds of the democratic press ,
nnd which , as all knowhcic , is so fur from
having any semblance of truth to it that It is
not worth while to attempt to point out Its
many details of gross departure from the
facts :
A party of negroes , wearing the livery of
the protection party , assaulted a colored
speaker for tariff reform at Council Bluffs
Monday night. Their language was of n
character that would bo dignilled if called
Billingsgate. Not satisfied with this proceed-
uro they proceeded to cruelly beat A. T.
Whlttelsoy , editor of the Globe , who remon
strated with them. To such dire straits Is the
party of protection coma that It needs must
enforce Us vile edicts by means of ncrowil
of drunken roughs. Alack n day , what a fall

Fast Trains Go Slower.
CIIICAOO , August 17 , [ SpecJal Telegram
to THE UEE.J The general ] imlnagcrs of the
various roads between Chicago nnd the Mis
souri river have definitely concluded to
lengthen the time of their limited express
trains ono week from next Sunday , regard
less of the protests of Omaha people. Some
of the roads felt inclined to postixmo action
until the excitement of thu western people
had subsided , but wcro ilnally prevailed
upon to make the change on tile tiuto named.
They were given to understand that U they
continued to run these fast trains , the other
roads who could , or would not make equally
low rates , would retaliate by cutting tares.
Ono concession has been made to the public ,
however , namely the time will not bo quite
as slow as ilrst agreed U | > oii , and the number
of trains will not bo diminished. The Coun
cil Bluffs train , which used to leave at 7 : 0
p. m. , will leave at 1 p. m.

In War
"We had busy times dm-ing the war , '
remarked a veteran telegrapher to a
Washington Slur reporter , "and a four-
tul amount of responsibility in the mat-
ler of news. We hail but ono line of
telegraph hero , and but one railroad.
I'licro wns the New York Associated
| ) rosH , through which the bulk of the
news was received. The late L. A. Uo-
bright was the agent here , and ho had
Iji his olllco as as lstants Mr. Barnard
and the two Holland brothers ,
Tames G. and Charles. The ollice was
then in the Davis building , onVcmisyl-
vania avenue , adjoining the Metropoli
tan hotel , now No. ( II ! ) . The Star was
published during the war on the
southwest corner of Pennsylvania
avenue and Hlovonth street. The
Republican wifs published in the
building known as the Ti-oinonl lieu o ,
Second street and Indiana avenue , but
was afterward removed to the north
west corner of Seventh and 1) ) slrcofx.
and then to Ninth street , between
Pennsylvania , avenue and D street.
Tlio old National Intclligoncorwas pub
lished at Seventh ami 1) blroeton ( the
northwest corner ) , and Colonel Forney ,
during the war , started the Sunday
chronicle , which was subsequently i-on-
vortt-il intoa daily paper. The-io com-
pri ed all the Washington papers.
The American telegraph ollice was
then on the north bide of Pennsylvania
iivenuo , west of l-'our-aiKl-a-Half 'street ,
and the ofllce was under the manage
ment of Mr. A. B. Tali-oil , familiarly
known as 'Pop' Talcott , now the elec
trician at the capital. Of the ton or
liftcun operators engaged in tlio ollice
then there are now living W. II. Young ,
William McKrccly , Fred Royce. Will
Snjiler and Andy Johnson the tailor ,
though , was then a messenger boy. "
"Much iii the way of news prior to
the war never gotout , " the old operator
continued. "The southern people frcolv
used the line and kept up u correspond
ence with their friends south up to the
hour of leaving. The government was
aware of this for Messrs. F. W. Wnlker
and Z. K. Pangborn , two northern cor
respondents , informed Mr. Stantou ,
then the attorney general uiiilui- Presi
dent Buchanan , that the wires wore
being used for treasonable purposes.
They were informed that the adminis
tration was fully aware of the fact , luil
could find no constitutional authority to
proyenl it. \ \ hen the question of se
ceding was being discussed , a dispatch
was sent by several of Virginia's repre
sentatives to the people of Norfolk and
vicinity urging them toaci/othe Brook
lyn as Virginia's portion of the United
Stale * navy. Senator Wigfall of Texas
never denied that he had used the tele
graph , and was wont to say jokingly
that he had. committed treason enough
over the wires to hang forty men.
"After the inauguration of Mr. Lin
coln'continued the veteran , "the tem
per of the people hero was feverish.
Large numbers of the old Washington
families , having southern connections ,
sympathi/.ed with the southern people ,
but in the early part of the war Ihc
largo majority , while not approving of
coercive measures , were willing to light
for the defense of the capital , and a
prompt response was made to the call for
troops for that purpose. A few troops
from the regular army wore in the city
a company of sappers and miners ,
three batteries of artillery , the ord
nance company at the arsenal and the
marines. To these wore added about
tiiil)0 ) district men accepted lorthe three
months' service , after the fall of Fort
Sumter. By the way , speaking of Sum-
tor reminds mo that some years ago a
correspondent related that during the
month preceding the fall of Sumtor ho
was in constant communication with
Governor Pickons , of South Carolina.
He , however , did not toll the whole
story and perhaps did not know it. His
custom was to go to the otllco after it
had clobcd for the nignt and a friendly
operator would send and receive dis
patches for him. They were not
destroyed and wore left on the paper
strip. Another operator'catching on'
to the scheme , took the correspondence
every morning and sent it to the proper
oillcers of the government. In this way
President Lincoln and his cabinet
wore kept informed of the preparations
for opening the ball at Sumter.
"It is not perhaps known , " he wont
on , "that an attempt was made to keep
the fall of Sumtor , on April IS , from
the government as long as possible.
Communication was cut oil' between this
city and Richmond , and the govern-
moiit had no direct news till in the eve
ning. In the afternoon , however , the
Into Patrick Crowley received a private
dispatch from his two sons , then at
Corilonbville , Va. , announcing the fact.
They .had built the telegraph line to
thai point. The fact that tlio govern
ment had not received such news up to
thai hour caused iloubt as to the cor
rectness of Mr. Crowloy's information ;
but from this dispatch the report rap
idly spread and caused much excite
ment. In a short time it bcomcd as if
every man. woman and child know the
news. The immediate result was to
quicken the military spirit , and in a
little time the war dopartmonl had
mustered in over thirty companies from
the district. The question with the
young men then was not as to the cause
of the war , but the safety of the' capi

telegrapher , "was then correspondent of

lie immediately applied to Hue-rotary
Cameron for authority to raise a brigade
of Marylanders , and agreed to do so at
once If quarters and rations wore pro
vided as fast as the enlistments were
made. Mr. Camron declined to accept
this oiler , but expressed his willingness
to provide for them as fast as regiments
wore recruited and presented for mua-
tor. The news of the adoption of the
ordinance of secession by the Virginia
convention lor submission to the people ,
and of Jolt Davis' proclamation offering
letters of marque on April 17 , was re
ceived by us , but was not given out , and
no dispatches were posted. Through
the Associated Press and the papers tlio
public was advised. Tlio arrival of
about -100 Pennsylvania ! ! troops on
April 18 gave bomo confidence to the
union people , for this was the llrst in

two wires loft uncul. As soon as Sec
retary Cameron learned of this mob ho
became anxious to communicate \\ith
Colonel WhHoley , aud he dh-cctcil the
telegraph company to lit id him and wire
him that his proposition would be ac
cepted. Colonel Whitelcy was found in
Philadelphia , and in reply telegraphed
'It is too late. They are now all on the
other side. ' It there had been less red
tape in this instance the mob might
have been prevented. Then followed
suspense and the cagorhcss for news
from the north waiunprecedented. Re
ports came that a confederate force was
marching on Washington. The wires
had been cut north and outh. Finally
the Seventh Now York regiment , hav
ing como by waj of Annapolis , appeared
mill as they marched direct from the
depot to the prosliluiilftV the entire
loyal population turned out to see them
"Did jou ever hoar that a plan was
made to wreck the train on which they
came from Annapolis . ( unction V Wolf ,
there was such a plot. Out on the rail
road is a deep cut. There wns an old
cannon in possession of the country people
ple \\lio fornun-ly belonged to a volun
teer company. This gun wns hastily
mounted on u pair of wagon wheels , anil
was to have boon stationed s-o as to com
mand the cut. A party \v\- : detailed to
tour up the rails , ami when the train
was wrecked the cannon wns to let into
them. Two ( icrmuus who were in the
plot wciv overheard talking of it by
some of the ( Jormun soldiers of UiK citj
then guarding the railroad , and they at
once informed the authorities. 1 don't
know but 1 have a copy of a dispatch
which conllrms this statement.
"About the time the movement was
made on Alexandria , ' " said the voli-ruii ,
"the war department appointed a con-
sinto supervise the dispatches , and this
occasioned much complaint , not because
of the unwillingness of correspondents
to comply with any reasonable request
from the government , but because of
the \\nnt of coulidence in some of tlio
men employed in the censorship.
Ostensibly the object wn to prevent the
publication of matter thai might embar
rass the operations of the government ,
but some of the government dispatches
wore about as wild as Iho most sen a-
tional correspondent could , wake thorn.

"When the first buttle of Bull Run
was fought , .luly 21 , 1SU1. the telegraph
line was up about half wa.\anil up to
the time the union retreat'commenced
the telegraph ollice was crowded with
business dispatches coming in giving
glowing accounts of the performance of
the federal troops. Then orders were
received from the war department to
cut off all communication. Mr. Raymond
mend , of the New York Times , had been
sending dispatches all day , ami on being
refused further use of the wires , went to
Secretary Cameron to bog the privilege
of sending a dispatch to his wife. Mr.
Cameron listened to his appeal to be
permitted to ncml merely the words. "I
inn well , " to allay any fours his wife
might have in not hearing from him ,
but ho would not relent. The
correspondents commenced to ar
rive in the evening , ami had we
been allowed , wo would have had as
much as we coulil do. The orders
were , however , imperative. Mr.
Painter , of the Philadelphia Inquirer , ,
was among the correspondents , and on
being refused , rushed out , took a hack
to the depot and inailo a train to Phila
delphia , arriving in time to have in the
morning Inquirer a full account of the
battle. The morning after the battle
General Scott sent a dispatch to Gen
eral McClollan , then in Wcsl Virginia ,
as to McDowell's reverse , stating the
looses in killed , wounded and prisoners
as 14,000. Then we were allowed to
open the office , but were cautioned not
allow any dispatches to btato the losses
nt a greater llguro than these in General -
oral Scott's dispatch. I have never
seen things more chaotic. Every sol
dier who came across the Long bridge
had a different story , and it bcemcd for
a lime Unit the union was about , gene
uj ) , but -onfederalcsdid not follow
up the battle.
"Tho Washington papers took their
news from the Associated Press and
from Iho departments , and in fact ,
wherever they could got it. It was sur
prising sometimes how news was ob
tained , for at limes Iho officers wore
exceedingly reticcnl. There were cor-
rcspondenls on the Held , but they could
not bo everywhere at once. Through
the executive mansion , the war and
navy department news was received ,
and often it was given out in a mere
skeleton. This , however , was often a
lead for a report or to follow un. There
were some in the newspaper business
who did not appear to appreciate good
news when Ihcy had it. I well reinom-
ior thai Iwo correspondents arrived
Tiaro on a Saturday night in February ,
18W ( , with the news of Buriibido's vic
tory at Roanoiiko island , N. C. After
sending these dispatches to the New
York Herald and Tribune , I
know how glad our people
would bo to read It in the Sunday
morning paper. Getting permission of
ono of the correspondents to use his dis
patch , I took it to the managing editor
of ft morning paper and oll'oreil it to
him without cost. The only reply I re
ceived was ; "The paper is so nearly
realty for the press that wo will have to
decline it. " I have forgotten 10 toll
you that it was not long after the war
opened thai Iho government dispatches
were bent in cipher , and in that way
many a piece of good news was kept
from the public.
"As you may suppose , " ho ivjntlnued ,
"there was much red tape prevailing
then , and often when nnpor ? had tlmii-
news ready to give to the public , the
publishers' would bo on the anxious would be ap
proved or not. Some olHeials wore very
reticent , and MOWS hud to bo pumpeu
out , but President Lincoln always
seemed anxious to have the public got
all information.
"Outiiide of the telegraph and the do-
pnrtmouts , the .steamboat wharves anil
the navy yard were points for items ,
nnd at those places reporters were kept
constantly. The quartermaster ( Can-
tain Allen ) in charge of river transpor
tation was located at Seventh and M
streets , and often boats arriving brought
up Interesting news from bolo\r \ , Al
the navy yard , which , for thu most of
the time , was under the same command
as the Potomac flotilla , news was often
procurable , hut usually had to bo
\\ormcdout. The rule seemed to bo
that nothing should bo divulged until
the olllclal roiKirt was given out by the
department. Generally Iho reiiorter
had llrst to got a sailor's yarn , ami after
writing It up with the plausibility of
truth , read it to an otlleer , and get at
the truth in that way.
' 'Among our own people here , as well
as among the many thousands of sol
diers sometimes campeil around , " said
tlio operator , "there was at times much
exoitcmont. The anxiety to learn the
latest news held crowds about the nows-
pnpcr ofllces almost continuously , ami
on the reception of good IIOWH often
would crowds visit the white house with
n band of music. You remember how
the MOWS of the fall of Richmond was
received. This was on April II , l.Mi'i ,
nud the aniiouncomont electrified tlio
city. Kvervbotly was glad , oven tlitt-o
who had been looked upon as soutlarn
suiipathi/ors. At nlglil houses were
illuminated , bonfires kindled mid bolls

New York Graphic : "A woman \\ith
a white nock never conceals it , " is one
of the social axioms. For the hist few
year , over since , in fact , the Princess
of Wales became the leader of Ameri
can ami London fashions , the while
neck has been in eclipse. The prin
cess has n dcon soar , caused by an ab
scess under the skin , and to conceal
this blemish the high collar on day
dresses and the broadband of velvet
and jewels by night were adopted. LiUo
most fashions , this one wns born to
soothe royal vanity , anil it must bo conceded -
coded it has proved a blessing to many
a long-necked commoner. Now , how
ever , there is a thrcatoncil revolt
among the beauties with white round
throats ; they say with the usual cruelty
of youth , that the princess would bo
glad enough to dispense with her
chokers if she could , and they will not
bo governed by her scar any longer.
For tailor-made , severe street gowns ,
yes ; hut for the houso. no ! Aided ami
abetted by M. Worth , the girls
are showing their necks in a most
distracting way. At the theater the
other night the back of tholovlicbt white
neck divided attention with " , lim , tlio
Penman , ' ' whenever the curtain fell
for the beautiful line of the soft brown
hair on that white skin , the graceful
curves of the jaw whcro it joined the
neck , and then the roundness of the con
tours , were studies iu which nn artist
might have reveled. To exhibit all thi
loveliness the Frenchy gown was devoid
of any band. Trying ? Well , slightly ,
but then thai is the charm of it. Only
the young and fair may venture to un
cover this portion of the human amit-
omy. English girls arc famous for their
columnar neck. American , on the con
trary , nro of the finer mold , and Iheir
necks like Iheir wrists and ankles , nro
more slendm- than of the fair but
massive daughters of Albion. Mrs.
Langlry , for instance , has a perfectly
set neck ; the back of it is what the
Greeks call "kissuble , " and so , too , was
tliis demoiselle's who engrossed tlio at
tention of the occupants of two scats be
hind her al the llicater last week. It
is seldom , however , thai Ibis pure
Greek lype appears on lliis bide , Ihough
now il is to be a fashion if will doubt
less develope among American bcaulics ,
for Americans haven way of being what
they desire.
