Jail Is ono Ulo.ison , charged with tlio larceny
ot Jewelry from the ottiibllsutnonl of Uobln-

of perfect muscular development. He was
the notorious "cell boss" In tlio Douglas

there a few months ago. After his Incarcera

It was contrary to his disposition to IOHR sub

Jail discipline and he began to trot mu
Ho reviled his follow prisoners for their
obedience and licensed thorn of eow.mlleo In
n vuln attempt to create an open rebellion.
Those things came to the curs ol Sheriff
O'Neill ' and ho promptly determined to im
press upon Glcasou very forcibly that ho was
not confined in Douglas county jail , mid hy
dropathic treatment , was used upon the re
fractory criminal with very good effect.
When the hose was turned on him ho tried
In vain to got away from it , as the terrible
force of the water almost blistered him.
Ho sought refuge In it cell , but
the nozzle was thrust in through
the grates , and after being two
thirds drowned tlio ugly brute gave up and
said ho bad enough. As the sheriff turned
off the water ho coolly said , " .lust remem
ber , Glcason , that I am not Joe Miller. "
That was all there was of It and since then
the notorious crook and dangerous thug has
been as quiet and poaec.iblo us any ol the
prisoners. This is the lirst case of insubor
dination that Sheriff O'Neill has hau to con
tend with in a year and a half. He Is not a
tyrant but ho is a strict disciplinarian in
every scnso of the word , and tlio nalutory
effects of Iiis course may bo seen by a trip to
the county jail. Perfect cleanliness , prompt
compliance with the jail rules and implicit
obedience are required. No scowling or
sulking Is seen and the prisoners evidently
respect the sheriff , with whom they are on
the pleasantest terms , although no famil
iarity is seen or tolerated. Sheriff O'Neill is
a model jailor , and his work always shows
for itself. The jail Is there and an inspec
tion of it at any time will convince anyone of

There was no quorum nt the board meet
ing last evening. The president , secretary
and souio half dozen members were present.
It was expected to transact some important
business in connection with manufacturing
enterprises which are desired to bo located
here , .but this business could not bo attended
to. Tun HKE has no deslro to dictate to or
llml fault with the board unnecessarily. Hut
the board was organized for specific work.
It Is constituted of men whoso private busi
ness demands their time and attention it is
true , but having considered this matter In
connection with the necessary worn of that
organization , thcso men should give it and
its meetings such attention as the business
under its consideration requires. It may bo
said that it Is unjust to ask a sacritlco of
thno which should bo devoted to private
matters. A connection with the organization
tacitly imposes thcso duties , and it Is fair to
presume the business men therein knew
what these demands would bo before they
identltlcd themselves with It. Having gone
into It , they should not shirk their duty. Al
ready one of the most energetic members
has withdrawn , and others have declared
they will do so if there Is not a moro hearty
co-operation and attention to the incctincs.

HIS FLATTERING OFFER.
How an Keillor Proposed to Mnko n
Famous Man Moro FamouH.
Some time ago while Mark Twain was
taking a reminiscent lloat down the Mis-
issippi river , the boat on which ho was
omoarked was compelled ono night to
"tio up' ' ' at Floy's Point , a villngo in
Louisiana. The humorist had gene to
bed , and had just sunk into ado/.o when
there came a sharp rap at his slate-room
door. Twain opened the door. Asquint-
eyed follow , wearing n cheek shirt
and rawhide boots , stepped into the
"Is this Mark Twain ? "
"Yes. I am known by that namo. "
"Well , sir , I huvc borne mighty im
portant business with you. "
"Please state it. "
"Kain't do it hero , but of you'll como
with mo you'll soon find out * "
"I don't care to go anywhere to-night
except to bed , " Twain replied.
"But I tell you this is important
something that should bo attended teat
at onco. You just come with mo n few
minutes and I'll bo dinged if you over
"I don't care to meet anyone. "
"You won't have to meet any ono but
mo. You inuy have had n trick played
on you , but I toll you this is to your ad
vantage. It won't take you ton minutes.
Tlio only reason I want you to go with
mo is that I may prove my good faith. "
He continued with such strong irapor-
tunity that Twain finally consented to
go with him. The humorist was con
ducted through a muddy strcol and
down a dark alloy to a small wooden
building. His conductor unlocked a
door , entered a room and lighted a
"Como right in an' set down. "
The humorist looked around and dis
covered that he was in a printing ollico ,
lilted up with a hand press and a few
cases of typo.
"Sot down. "
Twain seated himself on o box. His
conductor added :
"You are now. sir , within the portals
of the Weekly Progress , a paper that
circulates extensively throughout the
country , and of which I am tlio editor.
I wanted to bring you hero to show you
as convincln' proof of my standin' the
tools and appliances of my honorable
profession. I could , on the boat , luivo
given the information thai I intended
to deliver , but , suh , without these hero
surroundin's of sincerityyou must have
thought mo a fraud. Now , this is what
1 want to toll you Mr. Twain. I have
hcarn of you , and I want to suy any
thing you write that you want printed ,
w'y you bond it to J. Casper Mclntosh ,
and I'll bo blamed if I don't print it for
you. Yes , I will , " ho added , mooting
the humorist's attire of amazement.
"Yes , I'll be dinged if I don't. You
just go ahead now and write out a lot of
your fool things , and I'll bo hanged if I
don't publish 'em , I don't care a bhimo
whut folks bay. Don't bo snatched , Mr.
Twain , for I am a tolling of the truth.
I'll publish your articles. Well , of yo
must go , good night. When you got
down thar to the corner of the fence

It Is an Incontrovertible fact * that there Is
n growing sentiment unionthu ! citizens of
Omaha , that the rity is ontitlcil'to something
In the way of an annual exposition or festi
val on n moro extensive and clabor.Uo basis
than the fair. The latter' , whllo It Is nil
right in It w.iy , does not seem to meet tbo
cuds Unit the magnitude , anil progrc.sstx'o
spirit of the city demands , neither does it
prove the source of emolument that Iho
thrift and enterprise of Its business Inter
ests have n right to oxpset. This is especi
ally the case when the tlmo and money ex
pended In the attempt to got up something
to ntttrnct the people hero is considered.
The fair , as an exposition of the resources of
the city and surrounding country ,
falls far short of the umric , and It
is thought the tlmo has arrived
for Omaha , If she desires to keep pace
with other cities of commensurate impor
tance and size , to do somothliiif that will
Justify an outpouring of the people , and the
expenditure of a inunh larger sum of money.
The people , it is conceded , must have their
annual frolic , n period of sight-seeing , guy-
ety and mirth , and the one dlsideratuni Is to
combine with this season as mui-li as is
prolltable , ennobling mid Instructive ns pos
sible. St. Paul lint lior Ice carnival , Sioux
City hoi * corn palace , St. Louis her fair and
veiled prophets , Cincinnati her centennial ,
New Orleans her mnrdl pr.is , New Yoric her
world's fair , Boston her May festival ,
Chicago her uiter-stato exposition , and so on
throughout the list of metropolitan centers.
Omaha In catering to the elevation ,
the enjoyment and progress of
the hundreds of thousands interested in her
as n commercial centre , it is assorted ought
not bo behind in such n prospect.
To fei'l the pulse nt the city in this regard
n Hun reporter had brief chats with the fol
lowing well known citizens :
Mr. Hcllmau advocates u grand Interstate
exposition. Ho said the people who como
hero to the fair , Hud nothing in the city to
nmuso them , and of course , look to the attrac
tion that brought them hero to furnish it.
Thus , they go to the fair , and their disap
pointment Is fully ns great. They stay a
half-day mnybo , and then return to their
homes tired and disgusted. A grind
mter-stato exposition to bo held
within the city limits would prove a
most meritorious attraction. Wo have
as line hotels as any city , and there
is no question of adequate accommodation.
The business men and capitalists should call
a meeting and dibcut > s the situation , as it will
devolve upon their enterprise and liberality
to erect a suitable building for a show of
such magnitude. And instead of a week of
dust and weariness , a month or six weeks of
good , solid enjoyment should bo afforded.
J. A. Houiiisou thinks that nn Intcr-stata
affair of the discription suggested , would bo
a big thing for Omaha. All the largo cities
in tlio country are vicing with each other in
getting up an annual gala season for the pee
S. P. Morse was very enthusiastic. lie
thinks Omaha is now old enough , robust and
strong enough to tackle any enterprise that
any other city can. He thinks such n pro
ject would be a colossal success If only gene
at in the right way , and the proper man se
lected to manage and ongiaeor.-'f his must bo
a man of the most undoubted ubil
ity , of Jliniitless information , broad
ideas and soundest discrimination one capa
ble of taking hold of such a prodigious
scheme and organizing it and tarrying it out
to a Bucco-sfull ssue. He thinks some bright
nowdpiipcr'nan , ono familiar with all the
devices for amusing the people , Would bo of
much service to a board of directors. Mr.
Morse would like to see the matter boomed.
George and Josooh Darker , ara of the
opinion that the people have grown Indiffer
ent to thu old-fashionea pn/.o punkin , big
squash and elephantine porcine exhibition ,
and yearn for something higher and bettor
something of n permanent character to
show the resources of their town and coun
try , and the day and age in which they live.
The attraction must bo extensive , advantag
eous , profitable , something that would war
rant the railroads in taking a prominent
hand In it , something that would awaken a
spirit of emulation in othoc. cities ,
something distinctive and highly
meritorious in all details. There
must bo much that will interest and nmuso ,
and the whole people should concentrate in
making such an enterprise a success. The
Germans with their satigorfost , the young
men with their military , musical and athletic
clubs , commercial men , agriculturists , manu
facturers , artists , musicians and inventors
should alLtnko a hand in it. They thought a
Missouri Valley centennial wouldn't boa bad
idea for next year.
John D. Crclghton was of the opinion that
the chief feature of such an affair should bo
the city's facilities for getting up a grand
programme of extraordinary attractions , and
ho thought a little racing nnd base ball
thrown in by way of variety would bo a good
Erastus A. Henson said ho had already
been upon a committee with the view of get
ting up Just such an exposition and festival
something that would enlist the in
terests of the people from the
Mississippi to the const , and to
continue throughout the autumn months ,
which nro most delightful in this latitude.
He Raid n mammoth building would have to
bo put up , to cost not less than $ r > 00,000 , nnd
that the sooner the project was agitated and
taken hold of the better the prospect of at
W. V. Morse thought the old Exposition
building should have been preserved , the
Omaha of its day was not the Omaha of to
day. Ho had no especial esteem for a fair
held without the city limits. What wo want
is a grand , good show inside the city to bring
the people and hold them here.
W. A. Puxton thought the project was too

see whether or not the compulsory school
law is Doing complied with .or not.
It has been found that the ? least attention
has been paid to the law in.tho country dis
tricts , and the directors wio have not al
ready reported are for the most part these of
the country schools.
According to reports , out of the 0,010 pupils
In this city of school ago , 5jl4 ( wore enrolled
last year. This does not includu the largo
number of children who attend private

"Tho policy of the Union Pacific is to do

said Assistant General Pasion ar Atcont
Lomax yesterday , "and It was In , follow
ing out that policy the rooant changes in the
time card were made. Wo had to maka a
change , because both our eastern and west
ern connections had tnido a change in
their's. We have no idea of killing
or hurting the trrtdn of any town on our llni
that is nonsensical on tlio face of it , and i

not bo quite us saUs'r.elory now ns formerly ,
but In the meantime wo may devise n
sehcdulo that will bo better than over. Wo
took off trains No. 7 and 8 because there was
practically only nn hour's dlfforcneo in tholr
arrival and departure from the tlmo of Nos.

? 14 1,000 per year. Take the train from Nor
folk to Omaha on an average wo did not carry
more than three passengets a day between
these points , and you can see for yourself
that wouldn't ' pay. Wo want to encourage
local trafllc , and are trying to accommodate
those who llvo from fifty to ono hundred
miles from the county seats and business
centers , so that they can leave their homes ,
transact business , and return in the same
day. Uesldcs that wo have to look after
our through trade and compote with rival
companies , but the Idea of a train covering
211) ) miles and being looked upon ns
surburbau train Is all wrong. People who
travel thai distance lo reach Omaha generally
have enough business lo keep them there
a whole day , and our now time card has been
arranged to suit their wants. "
