The tussol between the Sheriff and the

to sue the sheriff , but has taken no further
steps In that direction. The sheriff threatens
.0 sue the hoard ns soon as he has cause of
action. lie asserts that ho has not been noti
fied ofliekill.v of the board's i of usnl to allow
his claims. His knowledge of the commis-

says , the fur Hy. In the meantime he sits in

Knocks Out Prohibition.
The chief of police has received a letter
from persons in East Carlton , N. Y. , asking
the following questions concerning the work
ings of the high license laws in Omaha :
1. Has the sale of liquor been decreased !
' - ' . Have the arrest * , for drunkenness
decreased in number i
3. Has them been a decrease in pauper

In reply the chief said : "These questions
are very dillicult to answer as the population
of Omaha has doubled since the enactment
of the law. However It is my opinion that
high license 'knocks out' prohibition or any
oilier method vet practiced In America for
the purpose of governing or regulating the

The Encliu' Tumbled.
About half-past 10 jcstcrdny the men
employed on the waterworks at Florence
were attracted to the scene of a terrible acci
dent by the thundering crash of an immense
structure which was being used for lowering
the pile-driving engine from a platform about
sixteen feet high on to a set of rollers.
The engine was on nn incline , and Just be
fore it touched the rollers it became unman
ageable , and fell from the platform to the
ground , As the leads wcro not blocked , they
became top-heavy , nnd were blown over by
the wind , striking the ground with a deafen
ing crash. On the platform were A. Hay-
inond , owner and superintendent of the pile-
driver , and John Flnnnlgan. The latter re
ceived a severe shock , and his right hip and
knee were badly lujured. Mr. Raymond ,
after falling a distance of fifteen feet , was
struck in the uack by a huge cross-bar. Ho
was picked up unconscious and carried to
Price's boarding house. Medical attendance
from Omaha was telegraphed for. Mr. Ray

How One for $ ftOOO Passed the Conn-
| cil Twice.
As to the final estimate for Hugh Murphy
for paving in district 127 , as mentioned in
THE But : , being twice passed upon by the
board of public works , the following has
been ascertained to bo about thu true state of
the case : On August .TO the city engineer
presented a final estimate for f5r > 3,1.20 foi
the paving of this district. On October 1 , In
the absence of the city engineer , Assistant
Engineer G rover brought into the
ofllco of the board of public
works a largo number of estimates ,
among which was this tlnnl estimate , but ,
as is customary the former partial estimate
was not deducted from the Until , on account
of a lack of time for the secretary of the
board to check up and ascertain whether
there were any errors or not , before the
meeting of the city council. The day follow
ing the meeting , when posting his books , the
secretary of the board discovered the dis
crepancy and immediately notitlcd the city
engineer , city clerk and comptroller of the
error , anil It was at once rectified. As n con
sequence , there was no warrant issued for
the partial cstimate.but a warrant was issued
for the final estimate.
It was positively passed upon twice by the
city council , but was not put into the appro
priation ordinance , or nt least so asseverates
the city clerk and comptroller. They say the
error was discovered in time to keep it out.
Councilman Lowry , however , declares that
it was passed upon twice by the city council
and must necessarily hnvo gone into the np-
propriatlon ordinance. How it could have
been eliminated without a tampering with or
mutilating of the ordinance ho was at a loss
to conceive. Ho says the ordinances are all
transcribed by a type-writer on legal cap
paper , the pages fastened together by a
small brass clamp. "It would bo an easy
matter , " observed Mr. Lowry , "to unfasten
this , take out the page containing the error
nnd replace it with a corrected one. "
"IJut whore are the grounds for all this
noise ! " inquired City Engineer Tillson.
"The very councilmen who have disco veicd
the mare's nest are the ones who prevented
a change In the specifications that would
have obviated this diniculty. "
"How was that , Mr. Tillson i" inquired the
"Why , one clause of the city paving con
tracts for 1S7 distinctly specities : 'Only
such earth as is above ttio level of
the center grade of the street shall
bo paid for a > , extra grading.
All other shall bo included in the price for
grading. This was changed in the spring of
the present year by the chairman of the
board of public works : 'No allowance for
extra grading except when a change of grade
shall have been made when the contractor
will be allowed contract price for excava
tion only. "
"The matter of the change came up before
the council , but these very members who are
now making the kick , advocated the original
specifications , those of 1SS7 , and then by or
der of the council this contract with Murph\
was made in accordance with them.
"bo you see that this change which would
have prevented this extra compensation for
grading was made by myself and Chairman
Ualcombo , whom Snyder denominated as ai
old hypocrite,1 in open council , for not notl
fying the council of this extra expense. They
well Knew it , aim uru wholly responsible for
"I had nothing to do with blocking this
change , " said Councilmnn Lnwry , who was
present during the above conversation.
"Oh , yes you did. You advocated the 1SS7
specifications , " retorted Tillson. "And yoi
also know , the other night , when you stated
in the council that Comptroller Goodricl
had told you the Murphy estimate
had been put into the appropriating ordl
nauco twice , that that was not true , that ho
told Just to the contrary , that it had been
twice passed by the council , but had not been
put in the ordinance twice. "
"Why he certainly did not , George , " sail
"Hut he certainly did , Tom , " said Tillson.

Impresses one nt the lirst glance is the title
"Dagoes of New York , " which title , how
ever , nfler a moment's reflection. gave mono
further concern , for it revealed to me .is
cle.irly ns possible , even before leading the
article , the fact that the writer , not knowing
of what to create his weekly correspondence
aud wishing to bring forward something
staitlingor better to create a sensation , had
attempted ( only attempted , mind ) , to
break a lance against the Italian clement
in America , and specially in New York.
Why notf It would keep his hand in prac
tice , and strengthen Ills habit of pleasantly
deceiving the credulous public. For which
reason and for the sublime stupidity of his
having exclaimed , "Not even the Holy
Mother church can control these Italians , " I
am forced to believe that the above men
tioned gentleman , blirottt-d Catholic that ho
must be , has bothered himself to pour out all
the concentrated gall nnd bitterness of his
spirit , which was caused by the elegant ,
unique nnd wily reply which his eminent and
most serene Holiness , Leo XIII. was obliged
to accept from the Emperor William
II. nt Homo , a few days since ,
precisely at the instant when ho
wished to nnnoy the young emperor
with that thread-bare , nauseous question of
temporal power. Far from wishing to assert
the truth or untruth of tlio statement that
all the Italians are the most "disgusting , per
nicious , filthy class of immigrants even
lower than the Chinese" as it is plain that
he who possesses a grain of good sense will
easily decide tlio question in his own mind.
I would tcstrict myself to implore our cor
respondent to enligten his readeis respect
ing the definition of the word "dago , " which
he s > o pompously adopted , lint , ns I know
for n fact that my demand could not be ac
ceded to , I recommended him ( nnd all others
inclined to follow in his footsteps ) for tlio
decency and decorum in Journalism
nnd out of respect to the public and human
ity , to be moro cautious in the future when
making general rules out of palpable excep
tions for Ins own good , moro over , 1 would
advise him , against the use of words , which
have no significance except for the vulgar
who created thorn , and which therefore are
too low und vile for adoption.

A sildler at Fort Hobinsou , commenting on
the abolition of the post canteen , pays his
respects to the institution ut his own fort in
the following terms :
The rumor concerning the discontinuation
of post canteens in tlio army was received ns
authentic nnd approved by nil concerned ,
especially so bv the enlisted portion of our
small army nt this post.
While perusing tlio columns of TUB OM ui v
Urn the other day , I noticed in particular an
article which I could not neglect answering
concerning tlio manner in which the canteens
throughout the army arc rcgulatodespccmll
the one at Fort Omaha. The Is no doubt in
the least but that the canteen at that post
will bo a great loss as it is handled in n sys
tematic manner , reflecting great credit on
those who did their best to bencllt , not them
selves , but these whoso custom lias helped to
make it a success.
The canteen at this post was "Intended" to
work on pretty much tlto same principal , and
for a tiuio did n business that would astonish
n \ cteran "Jugular of the ardent. " The mon
obtained orders signed by tlioir respective
company commander and in return were
given n ticket which represented the amount
desired , with which they could purchase any
thing in the line of eating and drinking. In
this manner , a soldier's monthly pittance
was in constnnt demand. There is no doubt
whatever existing among the en
listed men of the army that n canteen
at nny post Is a very desirable acquisition.
As time progressed our cjcs wore gradually
opened , and we saw that wo were blindly
led to this so-called place of amusement , as
lambs to the slaughter , and almost obliged to
deposit our * 13 a month In beer and peanuts ,
and generally left there with the knowledge
that our13 was in safe keeping and that us
soon as a dividend could be declared wo
would live on the best the market could af

conclusion that tlio locks of the vaults have
been tampered with and that the division
has long since been made ,
Now , as canteens at tbo different posts in
the army are about to become a thing ot the
past , we think a proper airing of the rot- ,

Rev. W. E , Copeland's sermon Sunday even-
ng had "Tho Social Evil" for its subjcct.and
coinmuulcd the earnest attention of a Inrgo
congicgatlon. Admitting the presence of
the evil and the faithlessness of the church ,
the speaker asked : "What are you going to
do about ill"
"The first ami most important work to be
lone , " ho answered , Is with one's boys.
Teach them the meaning nnd value of social
inirity. Teach them that social impurity is
the sin against the Holy Ghost. Teach
them the Imperative necessity of pure
thought * , pure speech , pure deeds. In the1
homo especially Is the work to bo done , both
by father and mother. Implant In the
minds of the boys a deep and abiding respect
for purity , a reverence for women which
shall ever net as a check upon vulgarity and
the animal passions , so strong In all. "
The minister pleaded for tnoue sympathy
for fallen women , and uno > l that society
hold sinning men equally guilty with their
victims. In no other way , lie argued , will
the social evil be up rooted. Let the church
provide a homo for honulcss im n , he con
tinued. Give to them the ndvantage of asso
ciating with virtuous women. Give them
a pleasant place In which to pass
the evening. Every evening spout In good
company is just so much time snatched from
the devil. A piayer meeting or a chinch
service will not do. What is needed is inno
cent amusements which will elevate a taste
for purity. Most fallen women are led as
tray by the deceit of man , and the girls
should bo taught to resist temptation.

County Treasurer Holln , a propjrty owner
on Wirt street , when asked if lie was aware
ot the extra grading expense when he sighed
the petition asking that the stivct bo paved
this year , said : "Yes , I knew of it , but the
general impression nmoiig the property hold
ers was that it was to cost no moro than 15
or 20 cents poryard. "
E. D. Van Com t Wo knew that It was go
ing to cost something extra the most of us
understood it that way.
Mrs. JosieComstock I was not aware of
it by a long ways ; on the contrary , I was as
sured that it would not cost a cent moro than
it would to have it done by a tegular grading
contractor. 1 think the whole business an
outrage-this charging ' " ' cents , wticn wo
could have had the work done for 13 and
some say as low as 12'j ' cents.

something extra , but nothing like .T > cents.

Next to the presidential contest has created more excitement than
our great Overcoat sale. It is the talk of the town , and every mail
brings us scores o ± letters from outside ordering Overcoats. We
have not said half enough about these garments in our last "Ad. "
Hundreds of customers praised the Overcoats more than we did ,
and acknowledged that what they saw outstripped their best ex
Of the three special lots advertised last week , two are nearly
sold out and the only one we have a fair quantity of , and all sizes
yet are the $7.75 SATIN LINED CHINCHILLAS. There isn't any
thing that will compare with them at double the price in Omaha ,
and you will say so if you see them.
We propose to keep up this grand Overcoat sale for a while ,
and to replace the broken lots will add to-day and offer for the
coming week three more styles , which we can conscientiously
recommend as bargains just as great and unparalelled.
Elegant wide wale woven back cassimere Overcoats in 2
shades , blue and brown , well trimmed and made at $6.00. This is
an extraordinary bargain ; $6.00 would not pay for the Cloth alone
in the garment. We have sold the same Overcoats right here early
in the season as a bargain for $10 , and they can not be bought else
where for less than $12.50 to $15.
A large lot of strictly all wool Chinchilla Overcoats , the Chin
chilla made by one of the best mills in the country and warranted
Indigo wool dyed , with elegant serge lining and satin sleeve lining
at $8. We challenge any reliable Clothing House to produce a like
garment for $12. Our price this week is $8.
The third is the bargain of the season. A lot of rich and velvety Ve
netians and Elysiums , in beautiful mixtures , lined throughout and
sleeves with finest silk ; a garment which is not often foundin readymade -
made stores , at $15. You would not have a coat made to order any
more if you see these. They are perfect in every respect and a mer
chant tailor would charge for a similar coat , $5O to $6O.
Next week we promise some extraordinary thing in suits and pants
Watch our "ad. "
Close , economical and intelligent buyers who are judges of quali
ties and values are doubly welcomed to this great sale.
