Tnn SUNDAY URB announced the dissolu
tion of copartnership existing between D. W.
Van Cott ana William M. Thompson , who
have conducted n Jewelry business under the
fityloof D. W. Van Cott ft Co , In this city ,
for n few years past ,
Saturday evening , upon his return from
ton , Mr. Van Cott found that a petition had
been filed in the district court by Mr. Thomp-
Ron , praying tor the appointment of n re
ceiver. As Mr. Van Colt had , on Iho ailn
ult. , purchased the Interest of Mr. Thomp
son In the store , mid held n bill of sale for it ,
ho was at n total loss at first to understand
the proceedings. Mr. Van Cott went ntonco
to Mr , 'Ihompson's attorney to inquire the
causa and to learn why n petition of so
grave a nature had been filed , especially nt
so Into an hour , after the business of the day
had practically ceased. Ho found that
Judge Uoano had , nt his residence , given an
order for n temporary receiver. The attor
ney said that a settlement could bo easily
effected by meeting him nt his ofllco at 8 p ,
in. It was hero learned that Mr. Thompson
had presented at the b.ink for payment , con
trary to agreement , n memorandum check for
f-JX ( ) . The check was dcstgnntcd as a due bill ,
to bo presented nt the store for pa\mont ,
The check the h.mk naturally refused toc.ish.
Mr. Thompson nt the same time presented
another check of Van Colt's , which was paid ,
according to contract. These notes nnd
checks given In payment for Thompson's in
terest in the slock were m.ulo lo him person
ally , so that they could not bo negotiated.
Mr. Van Cott , with his attorney , called on
ilutlca Uoano at his residence and explained
the case fully , which had been grossly mis
represented to his honor. The Judge said ho
granted the order on the strength of the
statement that Mr. Van Cott had stopped
payment on Iho clieok. The Judge added that ,
Inid ho known the naluro of the check
the cider would not have been grunted.
Thompson's attoinoy w.is ujjain seen , and
upon his request si certified check for the
sum of SJOU was given , and ho thereupon is
sued an order to have Mr , Van Cott put in
possession of his business forllnvilh , which
Mr. Van Colt then wont to the residence
of Mr. Thompson for an explanation and a re
traction of the fraudulent nllug.itlons in the
petitions , but was told by Mrs. Thompson
Ibat ho was not to bo 8en. . Air. Van Cott
called again upon Thompson's nUoincy for a
retraction , which was cheerfully made , the
latter stating that Mr. Thompson had boon
paid lu full of all demands , and that Hie
charges in the petition \vcic wilhoul founda
tion , and that the following morning ho
would have Thompson make the amende
honorable. The attorney had not seen
Thompson since Iho proceedings were had.
The attorney had me.ultimo examined Iho
books of account in the store , which satislied
him lhat Iho statements made by Thompson
wen ) incoriect , and lie so stated the fact.
The books showed that the entries had been
made by Thompson , which disproved his al
legation that Mr. Van Cott had kept the
Books In n way to defraud Thompson.
Mr. Van Cott states that "when the part
nership was made it was uirrced lhat
Thompson was to put his share into the busi
ness in cash , but instead ho lulled to meet
his piomisos , time nflor time , only paying a
small portion nnd giving his notes for Iho
balance. He constantly -pretended that ho
had securities that hu was about rcali/ing
on , and the money would bo forthcoming.
I furnished all the money to run the busi
ness , " continued Air. Van Cott , "for the fol
lowing six months , and then 1 insisted upon
a settlement. It was agreed that 1 should
receive all the monies duo the firm and pay
all the liabilities , until such a time as a com
plete settlement bo inado by Thompson and
lie should furnish the money as agreed. At
this time , m checking up the debits and
credits , Thompson found th.it I had paid
$ , IS1.01 in excess of my receipts
and ho thereupon gave me another nolo for
Hull amount , SIIMIII making promises that ,
the money would bo forthcoming soon. His
successive failures to meet these promises ,
coupled with the fact of his admission to mo ,
when I questioned him closely concerning
monies paid him , that he had collected and
failed to account for , led mo to force him tea
a settlement and dissolution at once. I ac
cented his proposition for settlement
In the presence of witnesses , paying him
$1,100 and surrendering to him his demand
notes lo Iho amount of 4-J.WiS.77.
"There is another thing I want to add in
this connection. When Thompson entered
partnership with me ho was to pay for the ,
half interest in cash on November " 3 ,
lfcS7. At that time he owed mo for
diamonds purchased to the amount
of J345. When the time came for him to pay
over the money for a half interest in the
business , ho failed to put in an appearance ,
but a message was received by mo from him
ut Chicago , asking me to wire him ? 20J to bo
made payable without identification. Ho ox-M
plained thai ho had unexpectedly got mar
ried to Mrs. L. Knapp Hurchard , of Brook
lyn , and asked mo to publish the announce
ment in the Omaha papers. I immediately
wired him the money with blessings and con
gratulations , and wrote him to return as
Boon as possible to fulfill his agreements.
On his return ho borrowed $ ! 00 additional
and look up quarters ut the Millard hotel. I
protested against his extravnganco
uud advised him to accept the
homo that Ins father had
tendered him , but ho objected to living in
such modvst quarters. I have been living In
this house at a rental of $85 per month. It is
the house which ho Induced his father to
double mortgage to gratify the sou's luxu
rious tastes , Thompson all the while repre
senting to his father that the proceeds of the
thrco mortgages , nmounling to SS.CUJ , had
been invested in the business. Thompson ,
in his petition , alleges that 1m had invested
less than 1,000 in the business , and his ac
count , In his own hand writing , nud vouchers
shows that I have paid him over $4,000.
"I found upon Inquiry at IheFirslNalional
bank and the Millard hotel that there was
an Indebtedness hanging over Thompson of
over * bOO on uersouul account , and I could
not afford lo Jeopardize my business for per
sonal luxuries. "
Mr. Van Colt will continue the business
without the assistance of the company.
"It's only a question of time , " nnd u ,
short timo. too , as to when your rheu
mutism will viold to Jlood a Sarsupa-
rllla. Try it.

P. E. Taylor , ono of the most prominent
politicians lu liuffalo county , spent Sunday
with Omaha fi lends , and never having been
hero bofora on the day of rest , was ralhcr
surprised lo sco so much stir among the
people. Mr. Taylor icsidcs nt Uavcnna , an
enterprising and wida-awako town of 1,000
inhabitunl , Unit aspires to bo the capital of a
new county now bolng agitated and asked
for by people living along the dividing Una
.between liuffalo nnd Sherman counties. In
couvmsulion with n UKB reporter , ho said :
"A now county Is the question in
which we are moro deeply In
terested Just now than any
thing clbO. Bo far us prohibition canccim us
it Is my opinion that HiuT.Uo county will ,
when the time to vote U'jmes , give a good
sized majority ngnlnst It. A large portion of
the population is made up of foruljun citizens ,
chiefly Ccraians , and you know they huyo
very little sympathy with anything savoring
of sumptuary legislation. All thu towns anil
especially Kcarioy , will , in my Judgment ,
veto solidly for high llco.iso. Although my
homo is so near the Hue of Khornun cuunly
and my business relations there almost as
great us in HufTalo. 1 can hardly say now
thai county would decide on Iho question.
As I staled before , we are so deeply
engrossed in the advocacy of anew
now country that neither prohibition ,
election contests nor anything clso attracts
our attention , "
Kefprrinp to this nil absorbing proposition ,
after inquiries for Information , Mr , | Taylor
a.\plnln < * d briefly that they expected to take
n strip twelve miles wide , two tiers of town
ships off the north end of J.Hiffulo county and
adit It to a lllce area from the south end of
Sherman , which will make n new organiza
tion twenty-four miles nt width by tUirty-six
miles In fcngtli and have Kuvcnin centrally
enouL'h located to bo mudo the county sent.
"Is'thuro much surlous opposition to the
"Vcf , Loup City and the north half of
Sherman county are waging a bitter light
against it , but I don't tlilnlt they can defeat
us. Kearney Is with us , The struggle nt
LOUP City sccmb to bo one of selfish
motives. They fcnr up there , no
doubt , that a division of that
county would lose them lUo county sent. , lu
the territory Included In the proivoscd new
county there are about two thousand volers.
Wo can count On peed support from Kcnrnoy
nnd nil that portion of Huffulo county lying
north of the Union 1'acillc road. The mailer
will be submitted to a vote nt the forthcom
ing spring election. "
A friend of Mr. Taylor's who was with
him when seen by the reporter cnsuolly let
drop n statement to the effect thai ho expects
to bo a candidate two years hence for the
oftlco of sheriff. Hcvcrtmg again to the
now county controverso.v , ho said ; "Down at

other things , the senator expressed himself
as coniUlcnt lhal , as a double-headed meas
tire , prohibition will bo badly defeated nt the

that the recent net of congress by which

Shortly before So'clock last night the sta
bles In the rear of the Consolidated Tank
Line company were discovered to bo on lire ,
nnd , although the brigade responded
promptly , they were too Into to save the
live stock. Six mules and ono horse wcro
suffocated , and must have been before the
nlarm sounded. Some had fallen lu the
stalls ns they stood , but the others , in their
struggles , had broken from their fastenings.
Five of the animals were owned by C. D.
Woodward nnd valued ut $7oO , while the
other team was the property of the McClurg
Cracker company nud worth about ? . ! OU.
The stable contained about eight tons of
hay , forty bushels of corn and a quantity ol
oats , all of which will prove an almost tolal
loss. There was also about 813) worth of
harness destroyed , and the building ilself
was damaged lo the exlent of several
hundred dollars. Fortunately the oil tanks
which generally stand in the vicinity had
been removed , or the consequences would
have bi-en much moro serious. The stable is
of brick and owned by A. II. Uishop , of Iho
Consolidated Tank company , who had rented
it to C. D. Woodward. He sub-let Iwo slalls
lo Iho McClurg Cracker company , and Iho
whole was in charge of Henry Khoads , who
roomed in the upper btor.v of the stable. Ho
had been in Council Uluffs all day , and con
sequently there was no fire about the prom
ises when ho locked them up about half past
0 , after feeding the teams. The origin of
the fire is a mystery.

James Redmond , a Lake Reimport

from the treatment ho received from
neighbors on Christmas ovo. Ho was
driving homo in a snow storm and the
temperature was 20 degrees below zero.
Half way to Bciiuport ho accidentally
ran into another sleigh containing two
men , who got out and beat Redmond
with an iron bar until ho was insensi
ble , then they put him into his sleigh
and sot his horacs udrift.
Redmond awoke ti few hours before
daylight and found himself before a
farm houbo. Ho dragged htmbolf to the

At the I'irst Presbyterian church last
nlclit the Hov. W. J..llarshn delivered a ser
mon to bank clerks nnd bookkeepers.
"A book Is one ofitho conserratlx-o things
of the world , " said ho. "When once It is
written nnd printed nnd bound , there It Is , a
thing U ) stand llko -stone In the path of
waves. Men soon bouin to quolo it nnd rl'gu-
Into their lives by iu They change , but the
book remains Iho same. The movements ol
society and the mutations of states nwcep
past It as tangled shreds of
cloud float past n star , lint I am
to deal with account books to-night.
I want to talk to you a litllo while because
you spend your lives over account books and
columns of figures.ott know what n trial
balance is , and 1 nm going to try to draw ono
off for you. You appreciate the value of mo
ments during thu month , and the Importance
of keeping up your work day by day , that
you may not bo found wanting nt the begin
ning of the noM month. I want to urge you
to use well the momenta of life that when
the 'uooks are opened' In eternity you may
not bo ashamed of the condition they arc iu.
Charles Dickens had a great pity for clerks
nnd accountants. You see it ever\ where in
his writings , and It was because ho had to
toll hksomely tit tlgures when ho was young.
1 cannot describe your work nnd hardships
us eloquently ns ho docs , but 1 have Just ns
much Interest In you ns ho had. Men iu nil
nges have wanted to have n clear and con
cise statement of their pecuniary affairs , and
this Is whatbook-kcceplnglsdcllncd ns aim
ing nt. The system in general use is willed ,
ns you know , the Italian method
from the country in which It was reduced to
perfection. Hut double entry was known to
the Homans nnd to the Assyrians. The
Homans had on ono side of their books n
word which meant 'to give , ' and on the
other a word which meant 'to havo,1 and jou
can easily see where the debit mid credit
came in. The early English words were
'debltour1 and 'crcditour. '
1 want to recall to your minds the fact that
God keeps tin account with every man. Ho
has given you n body ami is charging up
against you every excess you commit. Young
men are very apt to ovetdraw their physical
strength , and to try lo patch up Iho defi
ciency with whisky or tobacco. It is a bad
thing to have your balance hero in red.
Then God is keening account with you as to
your treatment of your follow men.
Ho keeps an account with you as to the
ten commandments. You know what they
arc. How does your record sland ns lo Idola-
Iry , blasphemy , haired , ndullory , and i our
obedience to .your pnrentst In the second
place. 1 want to tell you of the books in
which these accounts nre kept. Memory is
one of them. This may bo called Iho day
book. On the tablet of memory is written
down every act you do , every thought you
harbor , every word you speak.
Conscience is another book. This may bo
called the journal. What a fearful state
ment of how our various accounts with God
stand does the conscience present ! Influ
ence Is the third book. It is the ledger.
When once our deeds have been drawn ofT to
this book , there is n record made Umt will
forever stand. The great balance ift eternity
will be taken from the book of influence.

"The third thought I want you to carry
away with you is that the day is.coining
when these books shall bo opened.
For a little while you can keep
memory to yourself. You can make it
a sealed book on earth and no one
can look into it. You wouldn't like to have
your best friend inspect it. You shudder
when jou see Its ghastly pages yourself.
But the day is coming when the books will
bo opened. Memory all unclasped 1 Con
science with all its hideous record laid bare !
Influence fully disclosed 1 This shall take
place before the throne of Christ the judge.
Angels shall be the busy nndofllcious scribes
to open them. What will you do then !
Let mo say this. Christ will draw from
his in ( in ito love nndjnerit enough to balance
your account and make it nil stralchl. If
you accept him , and Jove him , and live for
him , you will "llnd whau the books nro
opened the word saved writlcn across then !
iu the blood of your Redeemer. Moro than
that , you will find your name writlen In the
index book of life , and you shall enter with
joy into the eternal habitation.
