LINCOLN. No\r. 10. )
Judge Houston fined Editor Kuimons f ID
and costs for resisting un olllccr and disor-
orderly conduct whllo passing his advertising
cards on the streets the other day. It is un
derstood , howover. that the line will bo made
thus heavy to give the district couit juris
diction In the case. Einmons promptly ap
pealed his cause and Hied bond for all at
tending costs.
This case Is exciting considerable ! Interest.
There arc two big sides to it. The city coun
cil took thu matter in hand and appointed a
committee to inquire- into the animus of it.
Yesterday afternoon was spent In investiga
tion. Able counsel represented both sides.
The arguments wore submitted last night.
There- seems to bo a ilxod purpose to usk
Ofllccr .Mitchell to hand in hh resignation.
It almost seems that ho 1ms been prejudged.
The notion of the commlttco In refusing to
grant Hubpumus to bring nut tbo testimony
nt disinterested witnesses makes it
ocom this way. Mitchell has friends
who will resent this act to the bitter
end , Huslon'H decision may have a ten
dency to help Mitchell. It will ut least glvo
him u clmnco to Introduce testimony that
may niltlgatu his notion and perhaps relieve
> Mm from thn implications that must follow
him by the action of the council committee.
lu soiiiu rpuurtors of the city the feeling la
manifest Unit thn whole case lias been prejudged -
judged , anil It is probably true.
The evidence before the committee tended
to show that Mitchell was attending to his
nlllclal duties iiupaitlally when his alterca
tion with Ktnmons occurred ; that ho asked
the editor to desist In distributing his adver
tising matter , and that ha refused ; that ho
Used harsh language In reply to the request
of the oftlcor.
The committee sought to make n point on
Mitchell by asking him It he had not neon
other parties distributing advertising slips on
the sti-oots In open violation of the or
dinance law , mul jiermltted It without muk-
lua arrests. "I hove , " he replied , "but I
asked them to stop It , and no unu ever re
fused and gave back saucy talk. I arrested
Mr. Kmmons because he resisted authority
and refubcd to obey the law. "
This cose will grind Its way out through
the courts , and it will bo impossible to fix- the
blame until the evidence is weighed impar
tially , An TDK DRK has stated before , Km-
menu IB regarded as a peaceable and law-
abiding citizen. Mitchell lias generally been
couiidercd a good onlcor. The publlo will
now bide the decision of the case lu the dis
trict court. It will bo hoard during the term
C9mmoncir.g next Monday morning.
This morning the attention of TUB UIB
representative wa railed to it piece of luuthcr
In the possession of Mr. Lo Ores , the East Q
street chiropodist. It was isoft. pliable anil
of very linn texture , technically known as
kid-tanned calf , mul equal tu any of the Im
ported leather of its class. It was tunned
from Nebraska skins by n younp Englishman
who lives at Crete. Ho has been In this
country but a few mouths , uml comes di
rectly from the largest tannery In London ,
vrhoro ttomo of the llnest leather In the world
U produced. The young- man , shortly after
coming to this country , concluded to try
what kind of work could bo done with Amer
ican hides , und the result of hi * labor he
brought to Lincoln and allowed oj samples.
lly nil who have seen It , It is pronounced to
bo nuporlor to anything heretofore produced
UUut state. A sample of tbo leather was
taken tu the Lincoln tannery und un oftlcml
them declared that uch leather could
not bo produced In \l\\a \ \ \ country.

Bennison Bros
The coit , Mr. Le Ores says , Is just half
the price of imported leather of an exactly
similar grade. The Englishman has recc'veil '
liberal offers from Lincoln dealers , Lincoln
is a line Hold for the establishment of a
leather industry that will produce : i finer
grade of goods than can be manufactured
anywhere else. Mr. Le Gros lias ordered
several skins and the Lincoln Glove coin-
pans lius contracted for ono thousand dozcm.
A strong effort will bo made to secure the
establishment of the industry here. It can
bo done , and if Lincoln does uot get it , it is
its own fault.
Monday evening , November 12th , the three
Lincoln divisions of the uniform rank ,
Kniehts.of . Pythias , will tender Governor
John M. Thaycr and Lieutenant Grifllth , of
the Eighteenth United States regulars , a
reception at their castle hall over the First
National bank. The intention is to make the
reception something more than a local affair.
Visiting members of the order are invited to
be present from ntii part of the state. It
will almost bo an ovation on the part of the
brotherhood in honor of their special guests.
The Lord rclgncth. Lot the jieoplo rejoice ,
and give thnnks to the Supreme Kulor of the
universe for his countless blessings.
The people of Nebraska have the most
abundant reasons for heartfelt gratitude to
Him for his guardian care and keeping.
They should give praise that He has blessed
them with citbcnsliip in this favored com
monwealth ; that Ho has conferred on them
the blessings of pcaco and social order ; that
the labors of the husbandman have been re
warded bv most bountiful harvests ; that Ho
has stayed pestilence from our borders , and
lias conferred upon us general health and
prosperity ; that all are permitted to live
under the benlllcent influences of education
and Christianity.
Therefore , in acknowledgment of all these
mercies and in accordnncu with a most ap
propriate custom , I , John M. Tlmyer , gov
ernor of the state of Nebraska , do hereby
designate Thursday , the l9th ! day of the
present month , as n day of thanksgiving and
praise to our Heavenly Father.
I respectfully urge that all the people of
the ativto abstain from their usual avocations
on that day , and assemble in their accustomed
places of Christian worship , and glvo thanks
to Him who has M > bountifully biassed us
with evidences of his goodness , and let not
the poor bo forgotten on this day of thanks
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my

ot Hradstrcet's agcncv at this
place. He is a son of Hon. W. Henry
Colonel A. G. Pairbrother , editor of the
Call , rctunica last night from his trip to New
York and Boston.
For a number of years the Hanlons aston
ished both Europe and America by Jheir won
derful acrobatic feats and clever stugo tricks ,
and now they come in an entirely remodeled
play , in which new features , new tricks and
new songs are Introduced , which ecllpso any
thing they have ever done before. The Han-
Ions have been before the public so long and
are so universally admired that whenever
they appear the public knows that the per
formance will bo rirst class. The mechanical
appliances this year are the most extensive
they have over carried , requiring the full
capacity of a car to transport it. The com
pany still includes many of the favorites who
have aided thoHaulons In making their great
reputation. "Lo Voyage en Suisse" will bo
produced ut Lloyd's opera house on Monday ,
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings of this
Murray and Murphy will occupv Boyd's
opera house the last three nights of this
week with a delightful mcdloy of mileslan
fun , entitled , "Our Irish Visitors. " Patrons
of the entertainment must understand that
dramatic oltcct is neither offered nor at
tempted , but that great big successful efforts
reach after the laughter of the audience , and
legitimate methods are employed to this end.
It is appropriate to say that Messrs. Murray
and Murphy are noted vaudeville specialists ,
and that in melody and suppleness of liuib
they discount nil competition.
The election is over and the management
of the Kdcn Musco have prepared an ad *
mirablo entertainment for the coming week.
Prominent In this will bo J. W. Coffey , thn
famous dude skeleton who 1ms in
terested thousands by his remarkable
person. Kaolin I , the ( vniccn of Clay , and
W. K , Glenn , the great Sponcorian machin

Chicago Anarchists to Celebrate
the Execution of Their Loaders.
And Nothing More Thau Simple Ob-
flcrvnnccB at the Cemetery Will
Bo Attempted An Address
to the Sympathizers.
The ChlcARO Anarchists.
CHICAGO , Nov. 10. [ Special Telegram to
TUB UEK. ] The anarchists "festival of ser
row" to-morrow in commemoration of. the
execution of the anarchists a year ago will in
all probability bo n quiet affair. The mayor
has forbidden any street parades , and noth
ing more than simple observances at Wald-
hoin cemetery will bo attempted. The cen
tral labor union will be largely represented
at the cemetery , and also 5,000 others , at
tracted by curiosity mainly , are expected to
go out. Several speakers will address the
gathering , both In English and Gcrmuu. Nina
Van Zandt will doubtless bo there. With
the exception of a few months' visit to Ot
tawa , this state , she has remained quietly at
home since the hanging. She has very few
callers but her grief has spent itself , and her
face looks as bright as on the day she and
Spies first chatted gaily through the bars at
the county jail.
Mrs , Parsons will not bo at the grave of
her husband to-morrow. She is in England.
Mrs. Fieldon is ou the west side with her
children. She is a quiet , frail little English
woman und never associated with the anar
chists or sympathised with them to a great
extent. The funds raised by the friends of
her husband for her assists her greatly ,
Mrs. Schwab resides on the north side , on
Hudson avenue. She visits her husband at
Jolict as regularly nu the month comes
uroutid. She determined to go tiomo to Gar-
many some time ago , but she is still here und
hopes to see her husband pardoned In a few
years. August Spies' mother grieved sorely
the loss of her son. but she is a resolute littlu
woman. She , with her daughter Grotchon ,
reside on the north side.
The Central Labor union n few days ago
promulgated the following address , printed
in German. It-vus nuimlv that which caused
the police to refuse the anarchists permission
to parade the city to-morrow :
"Fellow Workmen and Sympathisers !
Only u short space of time separates us from

of thu murder of flvu of the truest friends of

Tliolr Numbers and Feelings and
IMeetlne To-day.
A meeting1 of the socialists und anarchists
of Omaha has boon called for Mctz hull at 3
o'clock to-day. Speaking on the subject , Mr.
J. Kopp , of Kopp , Driebus & Co. , the whole
sale confectioners , eaid :
"I have not attended an anarchistic so
cialistic meeting in two years. I do not know
what is to bo done nt to-morrow's gathering
except in a general way that it Is to bo u
memorial service for the anarchists who
were executed in Chicago a year ago. "
"How many anarchists are there in Omaha ,
Mr. Kopp "
"I don't know , and it's hard to guess. As
I said bcfOiC , I have not attended a meeting
for two years , although the reporters
periodically raise n bugaboo about
such a gathering , winch is nil
uncalled-for und a needless ulurm. About
u year ago we had a mooting called and n re
porter on one of the morning papers came tome
mo for such facts UK I could glvo. Afterward
the meeting was declared off. It was just
before the Chicago execution , Public feeling
was running high and wo didn't want to
cause unnecessary excitement or fear , Evi
dently the reporter did not know of the post
ponement , for his papar gave u column und a
half report of the supposed gathering , " and
Mr. Kopp chuckled loudly at the remem
brance of thu joke on the enterprising pencil
"Ho even published pretended speeches , "
continued the speaker , ' 'and thu best joke of
all the German papers used his account for
reports of their own , "No , " in answer to an
other query , "thcro is no organization of
anarchists in Omaha. Otto Von den Stoinon
can probably tell .you all you want to know. "
Mr. Von den Htcinen is u German and en
titled to wear the word "Huron" us u handle
to his name , but in coining to America , he
cast It off. Ho was found in bis working
clothes In the grinding room of Melchlor
Hros. barber supply house. He is an in
telligent looking young man of u quiet demeanor
meaner , wholly dlfl'crent from the anarchist
that he In usually pictured. When asked
about to-day's ' meeting ho said ;
"It will be called ut MeU hall at 2 o'clock ,
ana may last two or three bourn. Tuoru
will bo speeches in English and German ,
interspersed with singing , that's about all.
The oxcrclsoa will be In memory of the
anarchists and BocIulUU who were hung In
Chicago u yearngo. I was put on the com
mittee , I think , because 1 was well ac
quainted with .Spies. I can't tell you the
names of the other mi'mhors of the committee
because their employers might bo narrow-
minded enough to dlschargu them If they
were known to belong with us. The
ctigllsh speech will bo made by
John E. Aliuors , of Council UlutTH ,
I cannot give you the names of thu German
and liohcmian spcuitcrs for the rcusons I
stated. "
The reporter urged that the names would
probably bo published after the spuochctt
wore made ,
"Vou may see them and hear them speak,1
replied Mr. Von den Btelnen , "but I will not
give their name * and you will probably not
know. Mr. Ablers is well-to-do ; don't/do-
pond on unyone olsu for employment uud
don't mlud having his name published. "
"Well , Mr , Von den Stelnon , how many
socialists , und anarchists are there In
Omaha ! "
"I do not know and have no iicans { of tell <

"Then there must l > u 150 to 200 socialists

"Yes , oven moro tban that , " said the Ger
man nolilc.
"Aro there any organisations of these
men ? "
"There Is an international workimjmcn's

That would bo contrary to the fundamental
principle of their belief. They elect a chairman -
man when they meet , that's all. I am an an
archist myself , but. contrary to the popular
notion about us , I do not believe in murder.
Our meetings were held openly until a year
ago , when the newspapers raised a great

Litigation of n Sensational Character
IlcKardittR Ownei-Hlilp ,
Loverett .M. Anderson has filed null in the
district court against William A. Paxton ,
Peter Ilor , James M. Woolworth , Alexander
11. Swan , Thomas Swube , Frank Murphy
und Charles W. Hamilton , known as the
South Omaha Land company. The plaintiff

contributed to the purchase money thereof ,
amounting in ull to the HUUI of WiO.OiO , in

and was , in law und equity , owner of an un
divided portion of the laud tlnm purchased ;
that the petitioner contributed ftl.UoO of said
amount , und was thereby made thu owner of
one flifty-sixth portion of the property , It
further alleges that in January , 18S4 , thu
petitioner convoyed the property to the foregoing -

with the undoiHtandlng that upon this , bonds
in three scries to thu extent of fl100,0(11) ( )
