to look oat for and arrest on Charles A.

the United States government , and on the
strength of this has been swindling ignorant
people , particularly negroes , in various parts
ol the country. He sometimes represents
himself as being of the \xmd auditor's of.

that th person duped will receive notice of
their pention being granted inside of ten

A Ij.iruo Meeting of It * Ueprcscnta-

The labor convention which met at ate
City hall Sunday , was called to order
shortly after ' . ' 30 , and after the election of
a ihairman and secretary , tho.meeting imme
diate ! ) proceeded to business. It was de
cided that none should bo allowed to remain
in the hall but those who were members of
labor organltations , and a door keeper was
appointed wtth instructions to announce
the names of all applicants for admission
and if vouched for by a well-known member
of a labor organisation ho was to bo ad
mitted. This precaution was thought to bo
necessary in order to prevent | x > litical heelers
from interfering with the meeting in the in
terest of candidates.
A legislative committee was appointed of
five members to co-operate with a smuliar
committee previously appointed by thn Joint
assemblies of the Knights of Labor for the.
purpose of drafting bills , and other recom
mendations to bo presented to the next legis
The following preamble and resolution was
Whereas , We believe that the maintenance
of a private detective force is a relic of the
barbarous ages when individuals used such
force to protect their ill-gotten gains ; and
Wnereas , We believe that the maintaining
of such a force in this country rotiect * upon
the dignity and ability of our government to
protect it > citizens and their property ; and
U hcreas. We believe that the importing of
such private detective force , responsible only
to their employer , into any community , sub
jects our citizens to insult and assault at the
hands of such forces , and thereby incites our
otherwise lawjabuhng eitirons to act * of violence
lence which alwajs result in prejudicing the
public mind against the first demands of our
people from great emplo.ving corporations
who employ said detective force ; therefore ,
be it
Hcsolved , That wo demand at the hands
of the Donglas county representatives to the
senate and house of representatives of Ne
braska that receive our support , the enact
ment of such laws as will prohibit forever
the importation or empliment of an\ pri
vate detective force in this sute to act in an capacity for the mamtainaneo of
peace or protection of property in this state ,
and also laws which shall prevent from act
ing in the capacity of henff , deputy sheriff
or constable , nay person not a resident for at
least six months in the place , when such ser
vice is required , unless ho. be'a state or
national officer.
The following measures , together \vlth the
above resolution , were referred to the coi -
nnttoo on legislation with instructions to re
port at a meeting to be held at U. A. K. hall
next Thursday evening.
The reival , oral least somolimitation upon
the convirt contract labor law , passed at the
last session of the legislature.
A more perfect child labor law.
Enlargement ol the functions of the bu
reau of labor statistics.
A reform in our voting laws by which the
power may bo taken from the machine politi
cians and that will prevent the necessity of
the vast expenditures by candidates for of
fice in order to secure election.
A better law for the indemnification of
workmen in case of injury from accident * ,
whether through the carelessness of em
ployes , or not.
A law that \\ill prevent cornering on
gambling in the necessaries of life
A committee was appointed to write artl-
cies for publication m the press advocating
the Just claims of labor from now until the
next session of the. legislature.
The legislative ticket was instructed to
prepare a law compelling the settlement of
strtKes by arbitration and providing a pen
alty in case either side refuse to arbitrate ,
T the credit of the men composing the
meeting in must be said that tile best of har
mony and gxxxt feeling1 prevailed throughout ,

"Watch the signs of the times , and you
can tell the people in advance something
about the coming changes in the Union Pa

operating line. And then the U .t M. will
bring U. B. Campbell down from Denver to
fill the vacant.\ , and one of their own em-
plo.v es will take the Denver oftice , Uut wait
and see if I'm not right. "

A. H. Cook , of the Cook Hemcdy company
\\aslockt\i up in the central station with
common felons yesterday on a charge of
obvaming goods under fale pretenses.
C'larles Carter is the complainant. The
story gleaned from prosecutor and defendant
is tliis Carter had been cured of a disease
by the use of one of Cook's remedies and he
decided to purchase the reci | > e from the com
pany and go to the far west and set up in
business for himself. Ho accordingly offered
his elegant gold watch , set with diamonds
and valued at { AO. a cluster diamond
pin worth ano'.herflOO and a solitaire diamond
mend ring worth about ? 125. all for the
formula by which the remedy was made.
The offer was accepted and a piece of paper
given to Carter containing the secret remedy.
When he read i ho was first astonished and
then angered by the simplicity of the pre
scription and now believes that he has been
duped and grossly swindled out of his ele
gant jeivelry. He therefore swore o Jt a war
rant for Cook's arrest and at 11 o'clock vester-
da > that gentleman was arrested. He will
be tried Wednesday at 2 p. m.

A Slancleil Little One.
As a little colored boy of about ten years ,
named Johnny Givens , was playing about
the cars near the Webster street depot , he
had one of his feet crushed. His escape
from death was almost miraculoui. He and
another boy named Charley Root were on ton
of some flat cars which were in motion , when
young Hoot jumped from ono carte
to another. Johnny tried to follow
but did not spring far enough ,
and he fell between the cars. Fortunatclj
he landed on one side of the track and his
right foot was the only part of him that lay
on the rail. In half a second the wheels had
passed over this foot , crushing it. The little
fellow got up and attempted to hop home on
the other foot but fainted away before he
proci-eded but a few rods. He was then car
ried to his home , 1537 Cummg street ,
Shot on the Shoulder.
It was reported that a woman was shot in

easy virtue and the fellow with her was
drunk and swinging a revolver around pro-
miscuousl.v in the hack , when it accidentally
ex-ploded. The ball just grazed tbe shoulder
of the woman , cutting her sealskin saoquc
and dress and making the slightest scratch
on her shoulder. The party drove hurriedly
away before any person could learn wno
they were.

A Shattered Intellect aud Would-Hc
In the short space of four hours yesterday
Joe Hear , a raging maniac , was guilty of
the crimes of arson and atte mpted suicide ,
and at present he is chained to the bars of a
cell in the central station with his hands far
apart , so that he can do neither himself nor
anybody else any injury. All day the corn-
dors of the Jail have rung with' his fierce
yells and rneamngness gibberish. Ho is to
be turned over to tbe county commissioners
for examination. Hear has been a
common object on the streets , and
has been in the police dock a number of
times on the charge of vagrancy and drunk
enness. Ho is of short stature , small fea
tured , and has no nose , the only apology ho
has for such an organ being a couple ol holes
in his face. Ho has a short , thin beard , and
is in everv way a most repulsive-looking ob
ject , more suggestive of an animal than a
human. He has always had a small stock of
intelligence , and that modicum appears to
have been lost.
For two or three nights the family of
Charles Pontz , living at 1MM Webster
street , took pity on him and gave bun food
and lodging , but when his lu
nacy became apparent , they becama
afraid of him and Sunday night when he came
as usual , he was given food but refused lodg
ing. This threw him into a passion and he
left raving incoherently.
D About 3:30 : yesterday members of the
the Ponu family awakened Justin time to
discover their building on lire and outstdo
they saw the hideous maniac dancing In a
wild and grotesque manner and giving vent
to peals of insane laughter A few nuckets
of water extinguished the flames. Near the
house stood an empty kerosene can and a
few shavings showing the cause of the fire.
The police were sent for and the maniac was
tacen to tne central station. About b 30
Uutler , the janitor , caught him in the act of
attempting suicide. The madman had taken
a strong scarf , tied it about his neck , stepped
up on the benches , and tied it to the highest
cross-bar. When the Janitor appeared he
was Just on the point of Jumpiu ? off and end
ing his life. Butler gave the alarm , and the
Jailer and a couple of officers rushed to the
rescue m time to save the maniac from self-
destruction After a fierce struggle they
succeede.1 in untiing the si-arf from his
neck. He wa > then put m irons and chained
as above described.
