The Soldier * ' Homo.
LtxroLV , Nob. , Fco. 15. [ Special to Tin :
BKE.J The soldiers' homo committees have
decided to offer an amendment to the law
governing admissions to the soldiers' home.
Senator Hoover , In speaking of the matter ,
said :
"Our law seems to have been copied from
tin old law passed shortly after the war in
some parts at least. It throws the home
open to the children , if under fifteen , of a
soldier who died in the service. You see
bow ridiculous it is when you remember that
the war has been closed considerably over
fifteen .years. Why , our law is so framed
that , if Implicitly followed , woula make it
t > rctty hard for a soldier to pot into the homo
unless ho had u family. The managers of
the homo have put a liberal Interpretation in
the statute. Hut the most important change
to bo proposed will bo in the method of gainIng -
Ing admission. At present if u man gets a
little discouraged he uacks up and moves
Into the home. His application goes through
the commandant and the advisory commit
tee , who may know nothing about him or his
worthiness , nnd they admit him as u matter
of course. Now wo propose that applica
tions shall be made to the commissioners or
supervisors of tno county in which the appli
cant lives. The people among whom ho
lives can learn readily whether the appli
cant i s worthy and whether ho is uimblo to
take care of himself. The commissioners or
supervisors will make a report of their findIngs -
Ings to the advisory committee , who will
thereby secure data for intelligent notion.
A bill is now being drawn up by Iluprcscn-
tativo Scovillo , to make these changes. "
Tlio SlcopiiiR Car Kill.
LIXCOLK , Neb. , Feb. --lSnccial to Tnu
BEE. ] Linn's bill taxing sleeping cars , which
passed the scuato with little opposition , is
brief. It makes it the duty of railroad com
panies to report the sleeping and dining cara
used by them , but belonging to other corpo
rations , together with their monthly mileage
in Nebraska and their total mileage in and
out of the state. The bill concludes with
this provision :
"Tho state board of equalization shall at
the time of tbo assessment of railway prop
erty , for taxation , assess for taxation , against
the owner or owners of said cars , the aver
age number of cars used by said railway cor
porations each month , and the assessed value
of said cars shall bear the same proportion
to the entire value thereof that the monthly
nverngo number of miles that such cars have
been run , or operated , within the state shall
bear to the monthly average number of miles
that said cars have boon used or operated
within and without the state , such valuation
Bhull bo in the sauio ratio us the pioparty of
individuals. "
Senator Church Howe explained hia votu
with the statement that ho would vote aye in
the belief that therbill would not hold water ,
but would give the suprotno court a , chance-
to inulto a ruling for Nebraska.

Secret of a Chuck.
LINCOLN , Nob. , Fob. 15. [ Special to Tun
Unu.l "Jf the $100 check which Church
Howe gave Mr. Ucchul of Omnhu could toll
its story it might disclose nn interesting chap
ter in politics. " The speaker enjoys the con
fidence of Mr. IIowo nnd was in reminis
cent frame of mind.
"Howo was in Omaha a short time before
the close of his congressional campaign two
years ago , " bo continued , "and in consulta
tion with the pin ty managers it was decided
that ho should address u mass meeting at
Exposition hall a few nights bcforo the elec
tion. Church offered to pay the o.xponbcs of
the meeting and asked how much it would
bo. No one scorned to know. 'Will 8100 bo
enough ) ' 'Oh , yes,1 was the response , and
Church wrote u check for that amount. I
don't know to whoso order it was made , but
1 understand Hcchcl is uaid to have objected
to having such checks written in his nanto
und I presume this cue went to some one eUe.
At buy rate the chuck was handed to Mr.
liechcl and if not in his name was probably
to thn order of the republican
committee or some member of it.
l-iOtig uftcrwnrd Howe learned that
Senator Manriorsn uml Mayor Hroatch paid
for the hall for this meeting. Just what be
came of the money raised on the check Is an
interestingmystory.butthcro is an Intimation
that it went toward the payment foracity lot
owned by an Omuha politician. If one check
went that way It probably Imdcompanlons.und
that's why 1 think thcro Is an Interesting bit
of political history associated with thai
chock. "
The gentleman was In a confidential spirit ,
and needed littlJ urging to continue his
talk."Howo baa good reason to feel sere at
JSechul , and J don't wonder that ho thinks
the Ouiaha man sold him out. Jlcro is , ono
incident that came to bis knowledge , Thn
illgbt before election Hcchol was walking
with Mr. Dewey , of Dcwoy &
Stone , and said ho could not support
Howe. Dewey was surprised nnd Indignant
to hear such talk from the chairman < ir the
county committee and the treasurer of thu
Plato committee. Ho remonstrated with Mr.
Ucchel , but that , gentleman turned it off
with n remark that hu was under too many
obligations to the other side , referring to
John A. McShane. You cun't bhunu him ,
can you I" nnd ho watched the smoky ringlets -
lots from his cigar with thu air of u wan hi u
inodltutivo mood.
"Hut Church doesn't forget n fellow that
( toes tmck on him , " ho continued. "It waa
nome of his money that helped to nominate
Whcolor for ttio city council of Omuha In
] lectiol's place , If JJrchel KOCH Into the tight ,
for the mayoralty , Howe may take a hand ,
too , I don't know , though , como to
think of It , that Church would
do that. He's not ono of those vindlctlvo fol

nn expensive luxury. It cost him about

police court at n salary of $1,500 a year. II
empowers the clerk to administer oaths , tc
issue warrants , subptunns and ether pro

was duly taken.

Mr. Potter took his text from the book ol
Mark , chapter 10 , verses 4'J to10 Inclusive.
His theme was the restoration to sight of i
blind person by the niuno ol
Hartimanis. This is the man who ,
whllo begging , heard of the cominy
Jesus along the road and , despite the olTorts
of other people , ran to Him and asked for
eyesight. Jesus told him his faith had made
him whole , and Hurtinwus was so rejoiced
that he Joined the company and went with
the Saviour. The blind man the type of
the unsaved person in the house last night.
Ho was similar to the sightless man whom
you meet on the streets every day , and says ,
Sir , will you ple-aso help a blind muni No
man , nccoreiing to the spo.iker , could bo in
dependent of God. The blind man tlio
true type of your condition if your soul was
unsaved , homeless nnd friendless. The
evangelist asked the audience if it hud anv
nity for the blind beggar when
ba knocked nt the kitchen door
for alms. If there were nny sympathy for
sucti there should bo for the one who was
blinel anel could not see the road to salvation.
If the sinners wanted to know how to go to
.icsus honestly the evangelist stated that he
wanted thorn to bo interested in what ho had
to say. He was of the opinion that most of
them wanted to banish tlio thoughts ho pro
duced. If they were interested MI salvation
they should pattern after Uartimiuus. If sin
ners wore , honest in the mailer all they hud
to do was to make a start. They should
think of death , of destiny and of the Judg
ment day.
Alter asking the Almighty to help the con
gregation to be honest with its souls Mr.
Potter requested those who butt cried for
Christ to stand. Thcro was a provision with
this invitation. Ha did not want any one to
rise unless honest in the matter.
Several hundred people arose.
"Now , don't rise unless you have given
your souls to Christ , " was tbu further plead
ing oi' the evangelist. "Those who want
prayer come up to the niter , but ba honest
about it. Let everybody stand while wo sing.
Conic quickly if you want to be saved. "
They , or a few of the sinners , boweel at the
alter. Among the converts was a number
of small girls. Several other songs were
sung aud the audience was dismissed.

Fairies anel llcnds , monks and nuns , sailors
and gypsies field the floor of the Exposition
hall last night at the first annual masquerade
ball of the Union Pacific band. The costumes
wore both tasteful and varied , the cavaliers
of the olden times dancing the latest wait ;
with the lady in the widows' weeds of to-day.
Clowns found their partners among the peas
ant girls of Europe , and the minstrels of the
stage were apparently enamored of the rag
pickers that nro scon every dnv. There were
jockeys male and Jockeys femalo.bull fighters
from Spain , representatives of night and of

An Alleged Pistol [ 'lay.
Last night a traveling man giving the
nnmo of Shaw engaged a hack to take him
to the Union Pacific depot. Hoed , the etrlver
of the hack , claims that the pussonger dis
played a pistol threateningly , presumably
under the impression that ho was not being
taken to the proper destination. At any
rate the driver got scared , and hud Shaw
arrested. At the station the latter was found
to have several hundred dollars. From this
it is surmised that lie was as much afraid of
the driver .is the driver was of him.

niiiunntu ami charmiii'manner ! as to com
pletely capture the audience.
TIM ; VASI : .
Far from the crowd they stand ap.irt ,
The maidens four and the works of art ,
Hut none might teill from sight alone ,
In which bad culture highest grown ;
For they all loved art in a seemly way ,
With a soulful hoill and n capital A.
The Gotham maiden fair to see ;
The Pliilade-lphian pedigree ;
The Hoston maid of nr.iiro blue ,
And the soulful soul of iCulunmeoo.
Long they worshipped , but no ono broke
The sacred stillness until up spoke ,
The western one from the nameless placb\
Who blushing Mild ,
"Whntnlovoly 'vnce. ' "
Over thrco faces n sad smile flow
And they edged away from ICnlamaxoo ,
Hut Gotham's mighty soul was stirred
To crush the stranger with ono small word.
So , deftly hiding reproof In pr.ilse ,
She cried , " 'Tis indeed a lovely 'vn/o. ' "
But brief her unworthy triumph when ,
Tlio lofty ono from the land of I'onn ,
With the consciousness of throe grandpapas ,
Exclaimed , "Ah , mot what a lovely 'vaso,1"
Anel lookeid around arounet with un anxious
thrill ,
Awaiting the word from lloacon Hill ,
Hut the Hoston maid smiled courteously
And softly said , "Ah , pardon mo ,
I did not catch your remark because ,
I was so enchanted with that charming
A western girl came tripping by ,
Who dwells 'neath ' Omaha's sunny sky ,
And cried , "Whoop ! Goll ! what u Jolly
Jug. "
Hctwocn the seventh nnd eighth tableaux
"Melpomenio's Wedding March" was given.
The young Indies were nil atUrod in appro
priate Grecian costumes , of loosely flowing
white robed , the arms bare , addimr to their
natural beauty und presenting a most at
tractive picluro.
All of the tableaux were nmstorpioe-cs , but
( Hpccml mention should ho inuelo of "Tho
Leper , " " .Icnthn's Daughters , " "Itoek of
Ages , " and " The Cross , " and of the "Forty
Emotions , " as given by Miss Mildred Houso.
Tlio tableaux were all ( Srucluti but "Jcptlm's

Tlio r-xe-ollenco of tlio entertainment and
t ho to talnbsunco of those ) little hitches and ] jrH
that generally mar the pleasure of such ex
