The winter term of the state university
commences to-morrow. It dates the inaugu
ration of the department of political economy
and tlio department of philosophy. A. G.
Warner , I'll. D , will have charge of the
former , and II. 1C. Wolfe , Ph. D , the latter
department. Prof. Warner took his degree
at John Hopkin's university , nnd Prof.
Wolfe at Leipsic. In their work they will
bring to bear experience and the most
thorough culture , and it is gen
erally believed that they will greatly
strengthen the faculty of the
university. The matriculation will bo un
usually largo during the winter term , and
good work is anticipated. It is said that the
state university has never been in n moro
healthy condition than now Tlio acting
chancellor gives general satisfaction. Ho is

Temporary IVrmlHHlon for Poles anil
Wire * lo Tliii'tctmlh Hlriict-
The injunction suit of the city vs. the ol-
outrlo motor and the IClcctrlu light compan
ies , restraining them from putting up poles
and overhead wires on the streets of Omaha
came up in the district court yesterday
morning , Judges Domic , Groffnnd Wakely
were on the bench ,
J.C. Cowln , counsel for the Motor com
pany opened with the statement that addit
ional nflldavita bad been Hied by the city ,
autl as they required careful examination ,
asked that the hearing of the argument go
over until next Monday , nnd in the mean-
tlmo the respondents could put In their
Oil behalf of the city , J. L , Webster re
plied thut thu latter was ready to proceed
wltb the case , but if the defense whhod n
continuance ho would ask that it bo extended
over to the 15th , as hu had a business en
gagement In Now York for next Monday
evening , and wished to leave for that city
General Cowin observed that there was no
objection to be urged against this extension ,
Ji but suggested that , inasmuch as the poles
had been erected on Uougla strcct as fur as
tlio corner of Thirteenth by the Eloetrio
Light company , and as arrangements could
bo cflected with this company by the
motor , und us it was the general
petition of the citizens along the line ,
the motor should bo nllowed to put
their wires for this distance and oparuto
tuoir curs. Ho urged that it could result in
no possible harm , and asked that the injunc
tion bo modified BO that this could bo ac
complished. Then , If it should bo deter
mined at the Una ! hearing that the poles had
been erected contrary to luw , they could betaken
taken down , which hu assured the court the
motor company would promptly do. If this
tnodlfrcntion of the restraining order wpro
granted , the defense would pros * no objec
tion to the extension of the continuance to
the tirno F > pecltl < Hl ,
Mr. Webster said the city could not con
sent to such modification , because the posi
tion of the defense is that they can erect
tholr overhead wires In defiance of tlio char
ter. To allow this mod Ideation , would ,
therefore , bo to concede the entire case.
This thing of creating n public nuisance nnd
say "wo will abate It after" a certain time ,
is beyond all precedence and reason , Ho
didn't sco how this could bo done this
sanctioning of an illegal and unlawful
Mr. Connell for the Motor company , cited
the provisions of tnc charter , and added that
as soon as thu court determined that it is
practical for them to operate their wires
under ground , the overhead could bo de
clared n public nuisance and removed. This
could only be determined at tlio Html hear
ing , and as the mod Ideation asked for by
Mr. Cowln could effect no jmssiblu harm , ho
hoped the court would grant It.
John D. Howe , counsel for defense , hold
that Mr. Webster was not consistent ;
that ho had told him that if the
city council passed an ordinance allow
inir the erection of tlu-su poles ,
and overhead wires , that would end the c.ise.
The council had done so , and there were
absolutely no grounds for a restraining order.
"Now after all this , " continued tlio gentle
man , "tho city of Omaha , no , not the city of
Omaha , but Mayor Hroatch , singlc-hamlod
and alone , takes up the light on n plea that is
absolutely devoid of merit. The council
has never declared these poles n nuisance ,
yet the city , or Hroatch clamors for a re
straining order. "
Mr. Cowin did not coincide with his col
league , in the statement that all tills opposi
tion originated wltli Mr. Hroatch , from the
fact that the Electric Light company was
likewise to be enjoined from erecting their
poles , for they furnished olectrie light and
not gas. Ho repeated that he did not con
sider It Mayor llroutch , nor tko city of
Omaha cither , for that matter.
The court took the matter under advise
ment , and Just before adjourning Judge
Doano announced their decision. Ho said :
"Considering that the flnnl hearing would
have to bo held over for two weeks , and as
they could perceive of no injury accruing to
property-holders or any one else , by allowing
the stringing of thu wires along the line of
Douglas street to the corner ot Thirteenth ,
if thu defendants were of a mind to take the
risk of what may butho linulo of the nppllca-
tiou for injunction , the court was disposed
to modify the remaining order ns
nsked. Therefore , tlio dofcndents may be
pcrmlted to string tliolr wires and operate
their cars , subject to the order of tlio court
in the Html hearing of the case. There can
bo no great Injury effected by the permission
of tliis modification. If It is determined to
bo injurious or unlawful , nn order may bo
made accordingly. "
General Cowin then added that it would
probably require until Monday for them to
nnswor to the additional affidavits liled by
complainants , which was granted , and thu
case was continued until the fifteenth.
Obstructing the Motor.
OUMIA , Jan. 1. To the Editor of TiinHm : :
To all whom it may concern , citi/cns of
Omaha , Knights of Labor , Trades Unions ,
and laboring men at largo :
It ) the intrest of nil enterprise nnd public
improvements I think It advisable to make a
few Remarks about the Omaha Motor Hail
Koail co which 1 bolive is being imposed on
by the city Atornoy in Hestraining them
from Erecting Poles for the completion of
thuir line according to the. Rights of their
charter and 1 do further belivo its a deep
laid plott to keep times dull and keep men
out of umiiloyment to satisfy some other
corporations who are not friendly to Iho la
bor ullemont the motor co will employ 150
men as soon ns their line will bo in operation
and would have several men to work now
hud not the city atorney interfeared.

This was bonded in by a man who claimed
he had been employed by the Uridgo Motor
company. When asked how long ho thought
it would take to set the poles in the business
portion of the city , ho replied that it might
take a week , but ho thought that the
company was being delayed in build
ing its power-houso nnd car-shop.
When nslced whether the company
would not have to build a power-house
and car-shop , oven if the motor
conductors were laid under ground , ho said
that that would bo the same , of course , but
the company didn't want logo ahead until
they had tlio poles set. He admitted that
the objections to putting the wires under
ground was probably to avoid the expense.

JAMES C. WILKINSON.
HeVun Formerly Connected With the
Union Pacific ntThU I'lnoc.
It will bo remembered that Tun BEK of
Tuesday contained the account of a
startling sensation in a special telegram from
Lowell , Mass. , in which Mrs. Mary Haskcll.
Kev. William Huskcll , D. D. , a promising
Congrcgationulist minister of that place ,
and ono James C. Wilkinson , formerly of
Oniahu , figure conspicuously. It now trans
pires that tlio James C. Wilkinson alluded to
is the sauio indulidual , who , up to throe years
ago wns connected with the Council Bluffs car
accounting department of the Union Pacific.
Inquiries at head quarters of the Union Pa
cific to-day revealed the fact that after four
and one-half years' service with that road
Wilkinson resigned his position and made n
tour through the east. 1 lo was absent about
a year during which time ho married a
widow.tho mother of two children , but whoso
nnino could not bo learned. He returned to
Omaha in ISSli , and opened a grocery store
on the corner of Sixteenth nnd Cass streets.
Hois said to have done a good business , but
after putting in ono year in the now en
terprise ho closed out Ins stock , nnd with hia
family returned to the oast. The report that
hu married a Miss Day , of Vermont , the
daughter of a wealthy farmer , his friends
here state must be erroneous , or else
she resumed her maiden name , as
his wife was the mother of two
children at thu tlmo they were married.
Wilkinson , or "Jim" as ho was commonly
called , Is well known at the headquarters of
the Union Pncilie , more especially among the
clerks , with whom ho formerly associated.
They speak of , him as being a genial , good
fellow , but having a limited knowledge of
what money Is made for. If ho has arrived
in Omaha , as was reported , none of his
former associates have seen him. Ho is
thirty-eight years of ago nnd Is said to bo u
good specimen of the human typo.

The past year has been one of marked pros
perity for Irvington and vicinity. Entering
the village from Omaha , the first place of

and general merriment took the place of the
former solemnity. The Christmas tree was
a bright , well-decorated and illuminated
pine. Tlio whole congregation and friends
from the country to the number of 200 par
ticipated in tlio affair. .
Somewhat later in the night Santa Glaus
made his appearance at Poppenlmger's hall ,
where a large , well-grown cedar , sixteen
feet high and wide in proportion , shone
forth in all its glory. Ucing in the center
of tlio spacious room , the latter seemed to bo
but a small apartment , nnd the numerous
visitors from towns und country , old and
young , looked like boys nnd girls in the mcs-
encc of the gigantic evergreen. Music and
singing opened and closed the proceedings'
here , too. Santa Glaus , in the person of
George Hoetcl , und ut other times as lively
as a lish in water , though well dressed , did
liis work quite silently. The only demon
stration ho made was by an old colored hat
which ho woro. Ho looked rather
anarchistic , and as a satire
upon lute political acliivoments
The tree was presented by Frederick
Schrocder , who sacrificed it to the altar of
the God of Light , the same whom our fore
fathers worshipped in other shape long be
fore the wise mon followed thu star of Jesus.
The gifts were distributed by Santa Claus ,
assisted by Michael Fox and Wilt Von Doh-
ren. The principal gift was bestowed upon
: he giver of the tree and his lady solid gold
juttons nnd studs for the gentleman and the
cst rocking chair obtainable for money in
Mlllard for Mrs. Schrocder.
The third attraction was nt the school
louse , Professor Mussilis ; endeavor to make
tlio evening an interesting ono for tlio pupils
of the school and their friends and relations
wns crowned with perfect success.

The masquerade ball here on Christmas
nicht was a success both socially and llnnn
chilly. There were about scventv-llve mnsk-
crs , and some of the costumes were the
richest ever seen here. The prize for the
most elegant lady's costume was awarded to
Miss Rose Fitch , n toucher in the Omaha
schools , and for the best gentleman's cos
tume to Oscar Guinea , of this place. The
dance was very quiet and ordcrlj and every
body enjoyed themselves.

to account for her condition. Child-birth has left her with prolnpgu ? , or other
