NnwYom : , Sept. 20. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : Dec- . ] Another man from the great
west came to grief again through 'Now York
rum. This time It was a son of a distin
guished Mormon family who paid dearly for
his experience. Seventeen thousand four
hundred dollars is a good deal of money to
pay for n week's pleasure , but thisis what
Alonso K. Hyde , of Suit Lake City ,
claims to have gene through slnco ho
arrived hero n week ago , Vestcrday
afternoon a policeman saw a well dressed
man , nbout forly-flvo years of age , wildly In-
loxlcaled , nnd almosl throwing money away
In Picketl's hotel. Ho locked him up , after
taking a trlllu over $000 oul of his pockets.
When Ihe man recovered somewhat ho described -
scribed himself as Alonso K. Hyde , n clothIng -
Ing merchant of Salt Lake. Bo said ho bo-
belonged to a celebrated Mormon family of
that mime , and was stopping with his
wife al Smllh & McNeil's hotel In Green
wich strecl. Ho had boon drinking heavily ,
and thu money found In his possession
was the remains of $13,000 which ho brought

merly of Maine , now of Columbus , [ O. , was

porter ho said : "Colonel Brice's vjsit west
has had no offojt whatever. Bo never
changed u single republican voto. In Ohio
the republican majority will bo 40,000. The
candidacy of Judge Tliurman will not gain
the democrats any votes in the Buckeye
state , but will lese a good many. They do
not at all approve the Judge's outspoken free
trade utterances , and will go against him on
that ground. "
"You think , then , the republicans will
carry all the western states ? "
"Yes , and by decided majorities. We feel
very confident of Indiana , although wo hear
the democrats are throwing barrels of money
Inlo Iho state and doing everything lo roll up
n majority. In every place I vlsitod in Iho
wesl , Ihe people were stirred up over the
tariff issue , and believe free trade and de
mocracy synonymous terms.
BLACIC DIAMONDS.
A Forecast of tlio Probable Dotnnml
null Supply of Winter Fuel.
Citizens of Omaha should take time by the
forelock and lay in Ihelr supply of winter
coal. Weather prophets are not only prog
nosticating another soverc winter , bul all Iho
signs point to an advance , und mayhap a
scarcity in the coal market. Now , it seems ,
is the golden opportunity. The market is
full of coal , and all dealers arc more than
fairly well supplied. How long this condi
tion of things will continue there Is no loll
ing , and it is inevitable thai before the severe
wealher of winter sels in there will bo an
other advance on the prices. The price now
is , hard coal , flO.'Jj to $10.50 , retail ,
delivered , and soft coal , Western 7
and Illinois G cents. Just about the same
as it was last year at this time , although the
price lo dealers is fitly cents moro per ton
Hum it was lasl year. This additional levy
has been made by the operators and Jobbers
at bolh Iho eastern and western supply poinls
on account of an Increase in Iho freight
rates.
A rise in the price in the local market
may bo looked for at any moment , owing lo
probable inadequate transportation facililies.
From this on to the opening of winter all
the roads are busy hauling grain , which pays
bolter than coal , nnd the roads are not apt
to put themselves much out of the way to
accommodate the coal dealers. From Oclo-
ber on unlil spring It is always n difllcult
mutter to get coal through , and already no
tice has been sent out from Chicago of
nn imminent advance of fifty cents
over the present price , as the freight rates
are to go up 50 cents on u ton. The main
shipping centers of Iho east arc also report
ing a shortage of sleek already , and what
this portends the people can conclude for
themselves.
The city of Omaha consumes a vast quan
tity of coal , bolh anlhracilo uud bituminous ,
but dealers claim that it would bo next to
Impossible to estimate the quantity necessary
'
sary to run the city through a severe'winter.
The difficulty lies in the taslc of figuring oul
Iho consumption from the shipments. The
hard coal in this market comes principally
from Buffalo , Scranton , Wilkusbarro and
Lnckuwannn , nnd tlio soft coal from Iowa ,
Illinois , Kansas , Colorado nnd Wyo
ming. The western soft coal Is said
to bo far superior to lhal of the
the Ohio , Hocking Valley , Susquehamm or
olhcr caslcrn coals. Tlio Kansas coal Is
inferior lo other western coals. It is a line
steam , bul poor domcslic coal , but that of
Uock Springs , Canyon Valley , Boulder and
Deer Creek has no superior anywhere. They
are all preferable to the oaslcrn coal for
cither cleanliness or frco burning.
In this city Iho hard coal is used cxcu-
sively for healing purposes , and Iho soil for
cooking and olher domestic pursuits. Some
few eastern families hero use hard coal ex
clusively. On the 1st of October there will
be an advance in price at all the soft coal
mines , and as a natural consequence the fig
ures will go up here , nnd while the Union
Paclllc , the Northwcslorn , Rock Island and
B. & M. railways say Ihoy will huvo an
abundance of cars all through the winter
months , the dealers doubt it. Experience
has been n lesson to them , and they see no
reason for such u desirable chaiiga of accom
modations for the prcscnl season.

About two months ago n man styling him
self lr , Wales , had ofllccs In the Pnxton
block. In ono room ho transacted n real
cstato business and In the other he operated
tinder the iiamo of n chemical company. He
advertised for nn assistant at a handsome
salary , and when a verdant young man from
Pennsylvania applied ho was required to de
posit $500 with Ids employer as n guarantee
of his honesty. Wales gave him n mortgage
on the otllco furniture nnd a lot In St. .loo.
The assistant was sent to Lincoln the next
day on n wild geese chase , and the pseudo
doctor fled the town. The ofllco furniture
was claimed by other persons , tlio St. .loo lot
was mythical and the young assistant had a
bit of experience for his money. A man of
the name of William R. Wales was
arrested In Indianapolis last Saturday ,
charged with a transaction similar to the
Omatm operation , and ho Is believed to bo
the swindler who fled from this city.
Wales was In Detroit last March and ad
vertised in the Free Press for an assistant at
$ T5 n month. A young man named Charles
R. Allen applied for the place nnd was re
quired to deposit f > 00 as security for the
moneys ho expected to handle. His employer
"secured" the deposit with a mortgage on u
lot In Toronto , Canada. Wales Immediately
disappeared , mid his victim discovered that
the Toronto lot hud been encumbered for
more than its value before his mortgage was
given. Allen put a detective on the track of
the swindler , nnd ho was tracked to Indian
apolis , where his family resides. It Is re
ported that ho has had n similar advertise
ment In Iho papers of that city. Wales was
taken to Detroit.

From "Fifty Years Ago" : The decay
of the great agricultural interest is u
calamity which has been coming upon
us slowly , though with a continually ac
celerated movement. This is the
reason , I suppose , why the country re
gards it with so strange an apathy. It
is not only that tlio landlords are rap
idly encountering ruin , that the farm
ers are losing all their capital , and that
laborers IM-O daily turned out of work
and driven away to the great towns :
tlio very existence of the country towns
is threatened ; the investments
which depend on rent and
estates are threatened ; colleges
and charities are losing their endow
ments ; worst of all , the rustic , the back
bone and support of the country , who
has always supplied all our armies with
all our boldiers , is fast disappearing
from the land. I confess that , if some
thing does not happen to stay the ruin
of agriculture in those islands. I think
the oird of their greatness will not bo
far oil. Perhaps I think and speak as a
fool ; but it scorns to mo that a cheap
loaf is dearly bought if , among other
blessings , it doprhes the countryside of
Us villugo folk , strong and healthy , and
the empire of its stalwart soldiers. As
for the hou-io'of lords and the English
aristocracy , they cannot survive the
day when the farm * cannot even sup
port the hands that till the soil , and are
loft untillcd and uncultivated.

Tlittriiinn'fl Colored Visitors.
O. , Sept. 20. This afternoon
O Thurnmii received n delegation of col
ored dcmocrnts , who , through W. II. Fur-
busli. of Arkansas , presented an address expressing -
pressing their thankfulness for fuvois front
the democratic party , expressing a belief In
the division of the colored vote us for their *
best interest , mid stilting their linn belief in
the election of Cleveland and Thunimn.
Judge Thurmatt greeted them warmly , and
spolto substantially as follows !
"Gentlemen : I am greatly obliged to you
for this call , und still more for the kind and
just sentiments tlmthavo Just been rend liero.
I know very well that I huvo boon
repeatedly described as the enemy of
the colored people. There never was *
anything more unjust In the world. When
my family came to this state my grandfather
brought with him all his property , which
consisted chietly of slaves , and no set them
all free. My father never owned a slave ;
my mother never owned a slave ; 1 never
owned a slave , and would not If I could.
Now I might also say I was raised among
the colored people ; but wo cannot expect
Justice in a political campaign , and I Imvo
been denounced us the enemy of the I
colored race. I deny nothing that Is
true , but this charge Is untrue. No ,
man can point to a law that I\
had anything to do with the making of , or to
any decision of mine while on the bench ,
that was more unjust to the colored people
than to the whites , or unjust in any descrip \
tion , and 1 di-fy any one to show anything to
the contrary. It is true that in ISliT , before
the KulTrngo for your people had been
adopted , when the question was In Ohio , and
Ohio alone , whetiior the word "white" should
bo struck Irani the constitution , together
with a large majority I voted against strik
ing it out. It was not right for Ohio to take
such action when nearly nil the other
states wore otherwise. That reason I urged
against such aetfnn , but from the moment
the amendment to the federal constitution
was adopted which gave suffrage to the col
ored people from that moment the.v became
citizens , and no man can say 1 over treated
them otherwise than as citizens. [ Applause. ]
No man can say with truth that I have de
nied equality before the linv of the colored
people. Island , nndOrovurClovclnml stands ,
on the platform of tlio democratic party ,
which pronounces for equal rights for all
without regard to race or color. That plat
form means that every man , whether by
birth , by naturalization , or by amendments
to the constitution is u citizen , Is
equal to any one before the law.
JApplauso. ] White and black stand on
the same foundation , ami all uro equal bolero
the law.
"I am greatly pleased that the colored vote
is no longer a unit. 1 have said repeatedly ,
in public and in private , that I am glad that
tlio suffrage was conferred upon the colored
people. The republican managers seek to
make political bondsmen of the colored race.
Tlio way to aciuiro ] your rights ami tosoonro
the respect of all is to cast your votes as the
white metcast theirs according to tlio meas
ure before you. "
Judge Tliurman concluded by saying that
ho knew well that the Into war" was
not for the abolition of slavery ,
and it was said that If the union could bo pre
served without freeing the slaves it would
bo preserved Unit way. The speaker knew
that Lincoln had said BO , and ho also know
that In the brain of the radical leaders It was
thought that by emancipating the slave and
giving htm this suffrage the south might bo
made a solid , radical south. In a word , ho
said that party interests governed political
action. After a cordial handshake the dele
gation departed.

RICHMOND , Ind. , Sept. SO. Hon. Roger Q.
Mills addressed an audience of suverul
thousand in this city to-day. Many clubs
and organizations escorted the democratic
leader to the grove in which the bpeceh was
made. Mr. Mills , when ho began his speech ,
was greeted with much applause. The bur
den of his speech was an argument to provo
that the democratic party was the only true
friend of the laboring men. lie also called
attention to the fact that when the republi
cans began to reduce the burden of taxation
they did not begin to take tlio taxes oil the
poor man , lint directly on * the rich. The re
mainder of the speech was devoted to the
tariff issue.
