of tlio closing months of the long sosmoi

jnontlis ago , would have declined to rent
j oems in their houses , now have signs in
their windows oiTeriug parlors and second
floors toientcrs for tlio session. The most
arrogant of the holdover republican clerks
have suddenly become obsequious and gentle
in their dealings with the public , and especially -
ally to any lepuWicans whoso inlluence they
fool why bo of value. The tone in the dc-
jmitments has perceptibly changed and
the humble seeker aftc-i- informa
tion Is now treated us if ho
were of some use In the world ,
especially if his connection with a reiniblicun
repicsentative or senator is known.
Preparations for inauguration aio going on
rapidly and promise a scene of brilliancy and
B'.iieiidor such as has not been known for
years. The military display will undoubt
edly exceed any ever before seen in Wash
ington , while the civic organizations
linvo announced their intention of partici
pating are legion. The entire national guard
of Pennsylvania expects to bo present , and
troops fi oin the F'acillo coast and far cast
will fail in line with hundreds of batalliont. ,
regiments , companies and squads from the
middle and western states. The city will bo
taxed to its utmost to accommodate the vis
iting oiganizations , not to sneak of tlio enor
mous crows which will ovoiHow the capital
on inauguration day. Hotel JceeM-rs | aud
ownois of oems to rent have nlieady
hoisted their pi ices to top notch rates , and
will leap a rich harvest for tlio most
wretched accommodations at prices varying
from $5 to f 10 a night during inauguration
week. The voi ucity of the uvorairo Wash
ington boarding housekeeper is foiouous
cough in all conscience tluilngordlnuij years ,
Init thcpiospects of an inauguration put them
lit onro on their metal with a result which
\\ould bring the blush of shame to the check
of the average Omaha Imckmaii.
The Nebraska delegation has settled down
liiletly to woik in the routine of pension
matters and land bills and the answering ol

Kroatly increased since thooloction. Jf them

succeed himself , or until the succession is
otherwise determined , there can bo no action
by the delegation upon mattcis of patiomigo.
The custom of allowing each rcpicbontalivc-
to dictate ihi ) pobtolllco appointments in his
district will probably not be departed from ,
nnd Messrs , Doi-suy , Laii d and Council will
bo given the sweet privilege of settling the
innumerable contests which arc ceitain to
arise In theli bailiwicks. The other oillccs
\vill doubtless bo decided upon after consul

but what the condition will bo after the turn

Orocoi-H Talk of Coinhlnlng.
At the board of tratlo ronm last night
about llftj retail groceis of this city met for
the purpose of forming a retail grocers as
sociation. Mr. Chris Hansel was called to
thu chair and . I. A. Stevens iii'ted as secre
tary of thoteinporaryorgani/ntlon. Thoehair-
m.m addressed the assembly , setting forth
the object of the association. Ho stated
that the time had come \\hcn something
must bo done for the protection of the retail
grocers of this city. Omaha was the only
city in the United States of any m/o uhoio
there was not n retail grocois association
There was a largo number of grocers In the
citj , and alt should joih the association. It necessary for their own protection
as well as for the protection of their cus
tomers. Wholesale groccas were protected ,
and so weio the commission men The retail
grocers were at the mercy of those last two
bodies and they wanted an association that
\\ould unable them , when the commission
men would not come to their terms , that
some few of them could order u car load of
goods where they chose , and have thorn de
livered independent of the wholesale or com
mission men.
Again , sumo ictailers with no consciences
gave short weight and used other Illegitimate
devices to customers. This tliosocletj
would tiy to remedy , and he invited the gen
tlomcn present to HUbscnbo their names to
the roll of memboiship , and hoped every ono
present would come forward and do so.
Thirty-seven of tlio-ie urcsent subscribed
their names on the enrollment list. It was
found tlmt all the gro < crs in the room had
not consented to become members , and u
motion was put to have those who had not
done so excluded fiom the meeting. A
wrangle uroso on this subject , when it was
discovered tlmt the loporters would also bo
turned out It was uviitunll. . \ decided that
as this was somewhat of an informal meet
ing the renoiters might stay. Hints wore
made that the others not signiiur should
leave , paiticular stress being biought to bear
on Huydon & Co , or their icprcsentativo
Hven body wanted Ilnyden's man put out ,
but ho refused to follow tlio MIS-
gestion , and remained during the
meeting. Finding that the vlsitois would
not leave tlio meeting proceeded with tlio
ne\t order of business.
The following gentlemen weio appointed
to canvass the respective wards , in which
they live with the object of securing addi
tional members for the association , and to

"Commodoi o" Footc , the engineer who so
miraculously cscapod with his llfo in the re
cent collision near Sin Jose , 111. , on the Chicago
cage it Alton railroad , is at present in this
city , the guest of his sister , Mrs OC Hun ,'tf ' St. Alury's avenue. Mr. Foote has
been through u variety of exciting events
duimg h'is llfteon years' career us an en
gineer , but all palo into insignillcaiico u'li-Mi
coin pai ed with his latest adventure. Ho was
engineer of u passenger train , but fortun
ately the coaches were empty at the time , as
ho had u special train and was on his way to
take ou a loud of excursionists. Tlio nine
passenger coaches collided with a freight
train with twonty-threo cars , and as both
trains were going nt lull speed Just
before they mot , the collision was
territic. The debris was piled
up lifty-threo feet high on the track. The
lircman who was by footo's side was cut
into pieces , and although ho was a imu , who
weighed about 2-10 pounds , the fragments of
llosh and bone tlmt were gathered up
weighed loss than forty ponnds.
l-'ooto fell Into a ditch full of water at the
bottom of tins huge mass ot debris , and the
cold water cooled the escaping hot water and
oavoa him from being si-aided to death. Hut
it wan wlthftho greatest dllliculty that ho
iminugcd to keep his mouth aboyo the water
and osinipu druwning. On his breast lay one
of tlio drive wheels of the locomotive , crushIng -
Ing Inn lung with its tremendous weight and
injuring him for life. He was stripped al
most eutirolj of his clothes and his body was
n muss of biulses and cuts. Ho lny pin
ioned In this pjuco for thrco houiit unu a half
when n farmer dug out a little tunnel under
the \\ieck and released him.
Ho can le-i u number ol scars as romeni-
brancebof thu fearful event , and although
the affair happunud suvon weeks ago , he is
still incapacitated for work.

Tlio Ijongtli of SerMce nnd Cunses For
General Hrooito , vy cn asked ifho was In
favoi of u term of ihrco years service for the
enlisted men , repllcds
"Yes , There hhould bo n shorter term
than that of flvo yc'uH , but my opinion is not
based upon the arguments that some use In
favor of it , namoU that a shoitor term of
service would lessen the number of deserter *
That Is altogether contrary to my cxpetl-
enco. Froiiuontly i occurs tlmt men who
have enlisted for flvo years inherit large
sums of money or obtain possession of
wealth and property Uy other means. Those
of course Immediately desire a discharge ,
and it is hard on thorn to bo obliged to servo
out two or three years more Others
meet with opportunities and chances In life ,
which will never again bo offered them A
shorter term of sei vice would help thcso men.
Hut that vv hich vv'oiild bo especially beno-
ilcial to enlisted men Is allowing them the
privilege of puiohaslng their disehaigc. I
am greatly in favdr of this and have no
doubt that eventually the soldiers will ciijoj
this option. >
As regai ds de.sortlon , It is n mistaken Idea
that the c-uuso ot it is too long service. 1
have kept an account of every man that de
seited fiom nn regiments for twelve years ,
and also the probable teasons , thu terms of
enlistment alteadi served , and in fact Imvo
weighed cnrofull.v every cause that might
promote dosoi I Ion. My researches have coil
vineed mo that , but ouo out /if every 1,00. )
in nn old soldier , that nine tenths go
vv itlnn tlio llrst , \ ear nnd that the same pro.
poition of these ire in the Hist six months
Theio tno professional deserters in the army ,
men who commit some misdemeanor In olv'l '
life fiom the consequences of which tho.v
must escape , and they enlist. Aftoi their
tioublo quiets down , they desert. There mo
other men who enlist for tlie purpose of get
ting into another pait of the country and to
travel. When they arrive at a place that
suits thorn mid leain tlmt thu regiment is
about to be moved , they dcseit , and , after
a time , lotuin. Others desert on account
ol troubles they meet with in tlio nrmj.
Some of these troubles arc occasioned by
di inking , gambling , and countless other slus
which n reckless young man can heap upon
himself. There is no doubt that a leforma-
tion in the army will soon take place in re
gard to slioi toning the term of service mid
the number of years i-cquisilo for retirement ,
granting the enlisted men the privilege of
purchasing their discharge , aud some otheis
of equal impoitanco "

I herewith make a suggestion , In connec

cation of the city hall. H is iuijmiativo that
it location or re location bo a matter to be
decided solely and exclusively by the ta\-
payeis of the city
To secure n vote of that character can not
the election take place at the county comt
house , and iho citj trc-iuurcr act as judge of
the qualilication v\hoa clnllenges nro made
on the gioundof "not a tax-payer' "
This will close the door against all trickery
nnd repealing by gangs of graders and tools
of the contractors ring.
I am a now-c-oiiM-'r hero , but own property
in the citi , and ot course am interohted In
the matter of tixntiQii , whether it bo fora
