t The concert at the opera house Thursday
evening next is of speuial interest from thu
fact that Miss Neally Stevens nnd Mrs.
Fanny Kellogg IJnehert nre both claimed by
this city , their girlhood being spent here.
Council I Shifts is naturally proud of having
pi educed two such artists.

Tlio case of Charles Smith , charged with
disturbing the veaee. was heard yesterday by

The other charge ngainst him , of being

The auction sale of lots in Potter & Cobb's
addition yesterday afternoon failed to draw
it very largo crowd owing to the unfavorable
Htnto of the weather. Two bands were en
gaged and paraded the streets of this city
and Omaha advertising the sale , but the
weather was altogether too damp and chilly
to create much of a rush.
Henry ICIscimin & Co. have In process of
erection a magnificent business block , which
they expect to occupy In thu spring. That
they may not bo obliged to move their im

reduced prices. The advantages which they
offer to the trade are given in their new ad
vertisement , which appears this morning.
Look for it.
It will bq remembered that Alderman Kne-
plier lost his mustache on the result of the
election. Ho was willing to part with it but
Mrs. K. objected. The only thing was to ob
tain Mr. Morgan's consent to retain it. As
soon as that gentleman understood the situa
tion ho very gallantly made out a bill of sale
for the hirsute appendage nnd presented it
to Mrs. ifacphcr with his compliments. This
is how it is that the alderman still retains
his mustache.
The residences of this city nro to bo renum
bered again on account of the great irregu
larity In this respect now noticeable in this
lesiicct. Owing to the peculiar manner in
which the streets in the older portions of the
city were laid out many of the numbers do
not correspond at all to the location where
they stand. City ICnginccr Stimpson has
charge of this work nnd will see that it is
immediately and properly done. Ho will
liavo to contend with the usual number ot
those who kick on every new move , but nl' '
public spirited citucns will give their hearty
support. mi

There was a pleasant gathering last even

The first real snow storm of the season
began about half ten yesterday morning.
The Hakes fell quite rapidly for a short time
and the ground was soon covered During
the afternoon the fall was quite light , and
made outdoor business disagreeable , without
materially increasing the depth of the snow
on the ground. The fall measured about an
inch , and made travel decidedly uncotnfort-
able. The boys appeared with their sleds ut

patiently until enough had fallen to tit the

Before the police went on duty last even
ing Chief Lucas called the entire force to
gether to inquire into certain matters rela
tive to its cfllcloncy. Tin : HUB man inter
viewed the chief after the meeting with tlio
following result. Said he : "I asked the boys
if there was any dissatisfaction anywhere ,
and without exception they said there was
not. I asked them if 1 had ever given them
any occasion to think 1 had any 'pets , ' and
they said no ; that all had been given an equal
show in the work which falls into our hands ,
and that I had shown no disposition to dis
criminate against any of them. I am ut , a
loss , " continued the chief , "to see how such
a report could have been started , for surely
there is no reason for it. When I took the
ofllee I gave strict orders In regard to drink
ing wliilo on duty. Tnis order has been generally
orally obeyed. What few cases there have
been havq not interfered with the work of
tlio force in the least. I will have sober men
and the boys know it. I must have disci
pline , and wliilo I nm at the head of the force
I will have it. If anyone thinks he is my
pet he is at liberty to quit , for I hnvo none.
Wo are getting along nicely and the boys arc
doing good work. The public may bo sure
this will continue as long as 1 am chief. "

San Francisco Examiner : O. S.
Church , of the Grand hotel , is tlio
owner of a largo ranch in Sierra county.
Ho is handy with his gun , mil is ohock-
ful of reminiscences and experiences
with big game in the mountains of
Sierra. The other night he was in a
reminiscent mood anil , after observing
that from present indications' this waste
to bo a great winter for bear anil deer
in Sierra , ho said :
"Tlio most horrible experience I over
know a man to have with a grizzly was
near the Sierra buttcs. twelve miles
from Sierra City , in tlio ( JolJ Lick
The man was Samuel Berry , famed in
the north as-in export hunter and trap-
pur. At odd"pm'iods liu made his head
quarters on the ranch of my father , A.
l > . CUureli , in the uforebuitl county ,
twenty miles from Truekce. That en
tire region is full of the various kinds
ot game that California h\inter f so
much delight in , and on the occasion of
which t speak , I Jerry was there with a
big lot of traps , dogs anil guns.
"Ho had started in for the winter's
campaign and was well equipped in
' very way. Ho set out from our house
on tlio 121th of November on < iiow. hoes'
intending to return'Ulfat night. As it
developed afterward. h6 made his way
over the level valley on the snow and
reaching the higher ground near Sierra
Unites , took oil his long wooden snow-
shoo.o , and climbed to the heights in his
long-topped cowhide boots. Ho set a
lot of traps for marten , mink and other
fur-bearing animals , making a wide de
tour of about llttuen miles. This prob
ably took him eight or toll hours. Ho
had left word nt our house that he
would be home that night , but he did
not come. The weather was cold , for
the altitude is pretty grcal there , our
ranch being itself o,00 ( > feet above the
sea , and it was nearly a continuous
climb from there on.
"Well , wo got anxious about him. for
it is sparsely settled thereabout , and wo
figured it tliat ho must hnvo got tripped
up in some way. Not coming homo the
next day , either , we organized n posse
of six or eight men and set oil' in pur
suit. Wo followed ins trail and pushed
forward until night .shut down on us
and we could go no further.
"Next day , reinforced by about fifty
of the ranchers and miners who had
gathered in to aid in the search , we set
out in all directions , hunting steadily
the entire day. There bait been a light
fall of snow , however , and in many
places his tracks were obscured , and
night came on us without our search be-
inir "successful.
"We knew by this time that Herrv
must have met with a terrible fate. If
not killed bv wild animals he must have
been fro/.on'in the bitter weather pre
vailing in the top of the mountains at
that time.
"The excitement in all that part of
Sierra county grow intense , and on tlio
morning of the third day there was
gathered at our ranch such a heterogen
eous mass of rilleincn. laborers , ranch
ers and trappers as had never before
been seen. The crowd numbered fully
leO , and it was understood from the
start that Uerry was to be found that
day. Some of Hurry's most intimate
friends were in the throng , and they
vowed that they would neither eat nor
drink until they had found him.
"Hounds were brought into requisit
ion and all possible clews were followed
up. Thev had climbed the mountains
many miles north of Sierra City , and it
was far into the afternoon when one of
the searchers struck the trail of Berry's
snowshocs. They followed it down
the declivities as fast as possible ,
but in many places the newly
fallen snow had obscured it , and they
lost a good deal of time. The squads
separated , and closed in together at in
tervals. Finally a small party discov
ered it again after it had been lost for
nearly an hour. They followed it down
into a big canyon , \\'lioro , owing to the
exceedingly preeipitoifs descent. _ tlio

"Two rods below was a sight frightful
to behold. Merry lay there stark and
J-tilT in death , his body fearfully torn
and the snow all about rod with blood.
' lie had eotne down the bij ( canyon
late in the afternoon , and as siiowwlfoc-
men do when belated or e.xlillerated by
tlio chance for a ll.vlnpr ride , had eomo
at lightning speed. He had not noticed
tlio widespread ing forks of the tree ,
covered as the extremities were with
snow , nor a great she-bear and her two
cub ; * which were secluded there. Ho
must have rushed right in among them.
"It is presumable that the bear
being thus surprised made at him. for
lie had shot and wounded her. This ,
however , only enraged the bear more ,
and she followed him up. Kerry lost
one of liis suowshoes , and then was
helpless ,
"Worse than this , in the confusion lie
lost his gun , and thus ho must htay and
outrage in a hand-to-hand oonllict' with
the bear. Herry , from the looks of his
body , must have been already wounded
In the left thigh and severely In the
"He drew his knife , tlie only weapon
ho had left , and fought nobly for his
life , backing down hill as fatt as ho
could meanwhile.
"Below the crotch of the tree , where
the body was found , the snow was again
fearfully torn , and Herry , weak from
loss of blood , had succumbed , and at the
last moment his face was bitten oil by
the bear.
"H was tlio most desperate eonlllet I
ever heard of , and strange to say , the
storv has never been told , yet all the
old hunters of Sierra remember this as
the most tragic battle with a wild ani
mal that ever occurred in that section.
You see , it was just the besriuning of
the solid part of the winter , and the old
bear and cubs had Bought this secluded
place to hibernate. Probably they had
been there for some days , and the old
ono was hungry and sullen at being dis
turbed , especially as she had the cubs.
"The track * of' the three led out in
the snow , and along the tracks of the
big one was a trail of blood , showing
that poor Herry had fought heroically
for his life , but the odds were too heavy
for him. Some of out * party followed
the trail of the bear until it was
lost in the deeper snow below. Whether
the old bear finally died from her
wounds , of coin-he we could not Uno.v.
"Herry 's gun was found near where
he had lirst run on to the bear , and thu
knife was still in his hand wlien bib
body wiih discovered.
"Henry Hint's is the king of the bear-
killers in Sierra comity. Ilines is an
old-timer from away back , lie gets more
bear and deer than any other hunter up
there. Ho is well equipped for the busi
ness , having plenty of good guns and
blooded hunting dogs.
