When tlio county commissioners assembled
nt yesterday afternoon's meeting , A. A. Me-
Fiuldon , late cashier of the State National
bank , appeared mid stated that his financial
institution had been notified by the county
treasurer that there was due the county
5321 us delinquent personal taxes on the
capital involved in conducting the bank. He
also said t.iat the assessment was never made ,
nnd that the commissioners had never re
corded the assessment. Kxplainln ? the mat
ter to the board , Mr. Mct-'adden said :
"On the lilth of tnis month I became nwaro
that the State National bank appeared
on thn books of the county as hav
ing been assessed for ' the year
libS. The facts arc , the bank had serious
trouble through impairment of capital ut the
time of making assessments for last year.
The assessor called at the bank , was in
formed by the proper ofllcer of the
institution of its condition , and ex
pressed tlio opinion that tlio bank stock had
no assessable value , but before acting further
in the mutter called in other parties who ,
upon ascertaining tlio condition of the bank ,
concurred in the opinion of the assessor , and
the bank was not assessed.
"On May -1 , the bunk was reinstated by
moneys advanced from the private funds of
the individual stockholders. Now , by some
mistake , the bank has boon assessed. "
The question was referred to the flnanco
committee and the county attorney.
The board of Insanity advised that Alfred
Green , an insane man , now confined In tlio
county jail , bo sent to the county poor farm
for treatment. The clerk of the board stated
that the demented man was suffering from a
disease that may at any moment prove fatal.
The asylum at Lincoln would not admit him.
The matter was referred to the committee on

A DUEL INTHE ZOO.
Savage Battle Hot ween Two Bucks in
The accidental opening , at an early
hour yesterday morning , of the wire
? ate which separates the pastures of
two distinctly American factious in the
Zoological Garden nt Central park led
to a duel which , but for the timely in-
Lorforenco of the authorities , might
have resulted fatally.
An intense rivalry has for months ex
isted between certain Montagues and
Capulets of this uicturcsquo region.
Through the interstices of a wire fence
the polygamous family of a magniliuont
brown buck door have taunted with
inanyniry tossings of their heads the
virtuous but lovely consort of a buck
whoso hair is white , but not with ago ,
nnd whoso cruel antlers are sharpened
to a forbidding point. There has boon
cause and enough for battle , and the
wind-swung gate provided an opportun
ity not to bo lightly lost. With heads
lowered until their horny weapons al
most swept the froxOn ground , and
with panting breath , tlio two bucks
charged upon each other.
Tlio kangaroos in an adjacent pad
dock stood on the tip-toes of their mus
cular hind logs and crossed their short
foro-pawH over their mouso-colorod
L > rcasts in an ecstasy of fright. . . Tlio
cranes and storks in the adjoining
yards stilToncd their voluptuous limbs
in emulation of the moro fortunate os-
irich , who from the natural pedestal
enjoyed the advantages of a gallery
stall. The boars , in their wire don on
.ho neighboring hillside , ran up the
jarklcss trees with which their prison
s provided and hung on to each other's
.ails in their eagerness to lose no detail
ot the tight. Unfortunately for the
> thor tnembera of the zoological family ,
, hey wore shut out from enjoyment of
.ho . spectacle by the heavy walls of the
jreat buildinga in which they are con-
Ined. For a space of ton minutes the
contest waxed fierce and strongand tlio
attlo of entangled antlers arose above
ho chattering of n million excited
sparrows hovering in the air. Fortun
ately Prof. Conklfn , who has charge of
'ho ' Zoological Garden , happened to bo
abroad earlier than is his custom and ,
summoning n number of assistants ,

Chicago AVorks a AletiunorpliosU In a
A young man from Nebraska has been
in the city for the past two weeks. Ho
is a partner in an extensive sheep
ranch , and came hero to look after
some consignments of tlio lleccy covered
stock sent here for market. Outside
of brokers and stoolcinon ho came in
contact with in u business way this
young man from the west had but ono
acquaintance in the city , a young fel
low about town , but who spcntil year
or two out on the ranch. Tlio work at
the stock yards took but little of
the ranchman's time , and ho and
the city chap did consider
able roving. When ho lirst
landed in the city the sheep raiser bore
all the evidences of his business in the
way of dress. He wore a llanncl shirt
cut decollete and had around his nock
n tie that would have set ; a tame bull
wild. His hat , however , was the most
distinguishing feature , for the young
man is fin extremist , and ho wore ono
with a. brim , at the very least , .seven
inches wide. It was this hat that earned
him the nickname of Blizzard Bill , a
name some fresh youth sprung on him
ono day , and it stuck to him
throughout his visit. Associa
tions , without any question , hnvo
a most wonderful oiVect , Blizzard
Bill , after his lirst few days of cir
culating with the bloods , began a pro
cess of slow reform in his costume. He
laid away his limning tie ; ho got some
modest white shirts ; he had two suits of
clothes made Unit wore simply stunning
in the lit , but with all this ho still wore
the hut. His friend talked , but for a
long time to no purpose. Finally ho
did recognize the utter incongruity of
the hiit and the clothes , for ono morn
ing ho was Keen with shears in hand ,
cutting oil an even inch from the brim.
Ho must have boon pleased with the re
sult , and thought if a little was a good
thing moro would bo better , for the next
morning he cut olT , at one fell swoop ,
throe inches moro , and on the third day
ho discarded it entirely and came out in
ono of those peculiar shaped checked
caps , which have lately become so fash
ionable , and that makes the wearer look
like u horse jockey. Tlio reform in
Blizzard Bill's attire had been slow. It
had only come by degrees ; but ho was
transformed from a full-blown cowboy
into a full-blown swell of the day.
Blizzard Bill was suddenly called homo
by u telegram last Thursday night , and
the boys are now wondering if the re
sumption of the former dross will bo as
slow , and if his friends out there will
look upon him as some rare specimen of
a now species.
Ex-Governor Pcnninpton , of Dakota ,
who was in Omaha a few days ngo , upon
his return homo expressed his views re
garding the city , | n his paper , the
Yunkton Telegram , iis follows :
"Omaha is a good city and is growing
right along , and recent interviews with
some of the leading citizens develops
the fact that they are anxious for closer
and more intimate business and social
relations with Yunkton and the Mis
souri and James river valleys above us.
They want to bo able to got to Yunkton
and the country beyond it directly and
promptly , without having to spend a
night or u day in Sioux City , Man nilla ,
or any other place. Omaha is n manu
facturing , wholesale , nnd distributing'
point , and there is no reason why they
should not -supply southpubt Dakota , us
St. Paul and Minneapolis supply north
Dakota. Wo are hero with our products ,
commerce , and trade with our thrift ,
energy and rapid development and
Omaha can have us , or what she can
got out of us , if she will only roach out
a kindly hand nnd take us in out of the
wot. The immense products of these
southeast Dakota counties , between the
Missouri and the James must enrich
somebody , and if the people of Omaha
will exert themselves nnd help to secure
direct rail communication , they can got
the lion's share of it. Ynnkton is u coy
maiden and yet she IB. . willing. What
Omaha wnntn , and needs , is railroads
right along up both sides of the Mis
souri river , for the river counties arc
the best and the most productive , nnd
with proper transportation facilities
tholr wealth would go largely in the di
rection of Omaha. Our down river
merchants , capitalists and manufactur
ers will do well to ponder those things ,
and to put some of their surplus wealth
in any railroad ontorpaisu that will
open up our fertile fields to their en
richment , "

IHIOI/AVO'S NATIONAIj HOLIDAY.
Cltl/.nim ol' Om.itin of Irish Hlrtli and
Descent Will I'ropcrly Colelirnto
flu ; National Holiday ol' TlicU *
Futlici-laml on .Sunday , the
Scvnil'MHitli of Miroh ; ,
The A. O. H. society of Omaha , as
sisted by divisions of South Omaha find
Council BlulTs , is making arraniromiints
to celebrate the national holiday of Ire
land , the 17th of Mtirch , in Omiiha this
year in a manner at om-o becoming to
the treasured traditions of that heroic
and chivalrous island , but especially In
a way that will emphasize the progres
sive aspirations of those who labor to
place tlio claims of Irishman in a proper
light before our American kinsmen , and
to prove by an undaunted front the just
ness of their claims in the fuco o'
calumny and abuse and a tyranny with
out parallel in recent terms. "O'Brien
in prison but not humiliatedj" is the
great Inspiring impetus which sets
every emotion of Irishmen quivering in
his system. Tlio attempted dcgrudtt
tiou of William O'Brien is yet to bo
avenged. The voice of generous , whole-
souled America conveyed to Salisbury
and his minions in no uncertain tones ,
is a rebuke not to bo unheeded.
The celebration above indicated will
be on Sunday , the 17th of March , par
ticulars of which will bo published later
by the committee.
Already the committee has secured
the services of the Hon. M. V. Gannon ,
find the members are untiring in their
strong desire to make this celebration
worthy of Omaha and its Irish citizens.
MR. LINCOLN'S MEMORY FOR
A Hitherto Utinuulislic I Aurcdoto or
the Slartyrcd President's Kindness.
Stories are always in order about
Abraham Lincoln , moro especially at
this season of the year when his birth
day anniversary is near , says u Shelliy-
ville (111. ( ) correspondent of the Chicago
Tribune. The onewhicl ) follows has
never before appeared in print :
In ttio early liftics , when the mar
velous future of Mr. Lincoln was per
haps as little dreamed of by himseu as
anticipated by his friends , ho practiced
law in the courts here. The late Gen
eral William V. Thornton was perhaps
the most widely known nnd inllucntial
man in central Illinois. lie was a Kentuckian -
tuckian of the old-fashioned , hospital
sort , and from time to time all the
celebrities of that day were enter
tained at the Thornton mansion , among
them Mr. Lincoln find his great opno-
nont , Mr , Douglas. Judge Anthony
Thornton , u nephew of the general ,
often met Mr. Lincoln there , and ,
though politically opposed to'him , was
a great admirer of him personally and
became intimate with him.
One of General Thornton's daughters
married n Texas planter named Mar
shall Buyso , and when the war between
the north and south occurred two of the
hitter's sons NelT and Newton Buyso
espoused the. cause of their section and
wont into the confederate army. In the
latter part of 180. ! both of the boys wore
captured by the federals and sent north
us prisoners of war. Out of money and
scant of clothing the two felt the rigors
of a northern climate , and communi
cated with their grandfather asking
him for assistance , which ho was unxi-
ious to render. But it happened that
about this time Secretary Stantonowing
to like measures on the part of the rebel
authorities , had issued stringent or
ders in regard to granting special favors
to the moil in gray. Judge Thornton
had long been acquainted with Mr.
Usher , Mr. Lincoln's secretary of the
interior , but he had little faith in being
more successful than others who had
tried and failed to got favors of this
character. Ho wrote to Secretary
Usher and asked that one of the gen-
oral's two sons Tom or Will might
bo permitted to visit their cousins and
give them such help as was deemed
necessary and right.
Tliololtor was received by the secre
tary just tis ho was on tlio point of
attending a meeting of the cabinet. At
the close of the conference Secretary
Usher took the letter from his pocket
and made known its contents to Secre
tary Stanton , naming tlio Thorntons ,
President Lincoln , who btill sat at the
table , overheard the conversation
between the two and uuiotly asked for u
repetition of the minion.
"Will or Tom Thornton of Illinois , "
replied the secretary.
Addressing himself to the stern secretary -
rotary of war Mr. Lincoln said :
"Mr. Stunton , you need give yourself
no trouble in regard to this mutter ; I
will settle it ; " and , turning to Usher ,
ho continued : "I know those boys
when they wore not moro than knee-
high. " Then turning to the table
lie picked up u blank card and wrote
something like- this :
'To the Commandant of any Military
Prison to whom this may bo presented :
Permit the bearer , Tom or Will Thorn
ton , to visit any military prison in the
United States and do for his friends
whatever his good judgment may
aiclato. A. LINCOLN.
Handing this to the secretary he
Biiid : "Send this to Judge Thornton
with my compliments. "
A few days later the Bayso boys wore
visited and their wants supplied so fur
us money would do it , and from that
ilay until hU death Gen. Thornton
would brook no criticisms in his pros-
mice of Mr. Lincoln or his policy.

ON THE ROAD TO IRKUTSK.
Tcrrihlc SutTni'liiK ICndiircd Hy n I'ulr
ol' Sllicraiii Mxllcs.
The following pathetic passage is
from Mr. ICcnnun's article in the February -
ruary t'ontury :
"Two of the most interesting politicals
whom wo mot in Irkutsk wore Mr. and
Mrs. Ivan Uhorinuvskiyho wore ban
ished to Siberia by administrative pro
cess in 1878. I became very well ac
quainted with them , and for Mrs. Chor
um vsUi especially 1 canin to fool thopro-
foundcet pity and regard.
"Fow women , oven in Russia , have
had before , tlio ago of thirty-live , so
tragic and heart-breaking a life , and
still fewer have maintained through
hardship , sickness find bereavement
such cheerfulness and courage.
"She was arrested in Odessa in the
arly part of 1878 at the ago of about
twenty-live , unduftor u long term of im
prisonment was sent by administrative
process to tlio provinco'of Tobolsk. In
tlio city prison of Kiovo , on her way to
Siberia , she was detained for a few
days , and while there was forced to bo
almost an eye witness of the assassin
ation of her dearest friend.
"A young man of English descent
named Beverly , whom she had known
from childhood , had been arrested
shortly before upon a charge of living
upon a false passport and carrying on a
revolutionary propaganda , and ho was
at that time in tlio Kiev prison.
"The night before Mrs. Cherniavski
was to resume her journey to Siberia.
Beverly , with a comrade named Izbit-
ski. attempted to escape through a tun
nel which they had succeeded in dig
ging from their cell to u point outside
tlio prison wall.
"The prison authorities , however ,
had , in some way become aware of the
existence of the tunnel , and had posted
a squad of soldiers near the place whore
the fugitives mnbt emerge from the
ground. Late at night , when they
made their appearance , they wcro re
ceived with a volley of musketry.
"Beverly was mortally wounded , ant
as he lay writhing on the ground lie
was dispatched by asoldier with several
repeated bayonet thrusts. Izbitski ,
wounded and severely beaten , was
taken back into prison.
"Tho next morning when Mrs. Chor-
niavski started with her party for Si'
bcria she had to march past the bloody
and disfigured body of her dearest
friend , which was still lying where it
had fallen , in plain sight of the prison
" 'I can bear my own personal tor
ment , ' she said to me with u sob as she
finished tlio story of the tragedy , 'but
such things as that break my heart. '
"I need not recount the hardships and
and miseries that who , a cultivated and
refined woman , endured on the road
and in the roadside ctupes between
Kiev and the small town in the Siberian
province of Tobolsk , where she and her
husband had been assigned a residence.
'They reached their destination at
last ; a child was there born to them and
they lived there in something like com
fort until March , 1881 , when Alexander
III. came to the throne and Mr. Cherni
avski was required to taice the oath of
"Ho refused to do so , and they wcro
sent still farther eastward to the town
of Krasnoyarsk. A second refusal to
take the oath of allegiance resulted in
their being sent to Irkutsk.
"By this time winter had tot in , and
they were traveling in fin open ttiruutus
with t delicate baby thirteen months of
age. It was with the greatest dilliculty
that Mrs. Churniuvski could keep her
baby , warm , and at the last station before -
fore reaching Irkutsk she removed the
heavy wrappings in which she had en
veloped it and found it dead.
"With the shock of this discovery
she became delirious , and wept , sang
pathetic little nursery songs to hordeud
child , rocked it in her armsand prayed
nnd curbed God by turns.
"In the courtyard of the Irkutsk for
warding prison , in u temperature of
UU ° below zero , Mr.'Cherniuvski stood
for the party to be formally received ,
with his wife raving in delirium bcbido
him and his dead child in his arms.
"Mrs. Chcrniuvski lay at tlio prison
hospital at Irkutsk until she recovered
her reason , and to some extent her
strengthmid then she and her husband
wcro sent 2,000 miles further to the
northeastward , under guard of geu-
.larmos. and colonized in u Yakut set
tlement known as the Buturuski ooloos ,
situated in the 'tiaga' or primeval wil-
lernesH of Yukutsk , 105 miles from tlio
"There , sulToriiig almost every con-
jeivablo hurdiihip and privation , they
ived until 1881 , when the minister of
; he Interior allowed them to return to
i more civilized part of Siberia.
"Mrs. Chcrniavsky , when I made her
icquaintanco , was u pale , delicate , hoi-
ow-uheoked woman , whoao health had
icon completely wrecked by yearn of
mprisonment , banishment and grief.
lShe ! had had two children , and had
est them both in exile under oireutn-
itances that made the bereavement
ilmost intolerable ; for several yearn she
tail been separated by u distance of
nuny thousand miles from ail of her
dndrod ; the future seemed to hold for
ler absolutely nothing except the love
> f the husband whoso exile she could
itill share , but whoso Interests she
sould do so little in her broken state of
icalth to promote.
' 'Sho had not boon able tostopoulsldo
.he house for two months , and it seemed
o mo when I bade her good-by , that
lor life of happiness and Buffering was
Iruwing to u close.
"I felt profoundly sorry for her--
vhilo listening to her story my face was
, vet with tears almost for the first time
iince boyhood mid hoping to glvo her
lomo pleasure and to show lior how sin-
: orely I esteemed her , I offered her my
( holograph , ns the only memento I
; ould Icavo with her.
"To my great gurprlbo she sadly but
Irmly declined it , and wild ; ' .Many
yonrs ngo I had u photograph of n. llttto
child that 1 had lost. It was the only
ono in existence , nnd 1 could not go't
" 'Tlio pollco mndo a search ono night
in my IIOUPO and took away nil my loiters
ters and photographs. 1 told them that
this particular picture was the only
portrait 1 had of my dead boy.
' "Tho gendarme olllcor who con
ducted the search promised mo upon
his word of honor that it should bo re
turned to mo , but I never saw it ngain >
I mndo n vow then that it should not ba
nosslblo for the Russian government to
hurt mo so n second time , and from that
day to this I have never had n photo
graph in my possession. '
u "I do not know whether Mrs. ( "nor-
nliivskl is now living or dond ; but if she
bo still living 1 trust that these pngca
may find their way to hur and show
her that on the other side of the world
she is still remembered with ulTection-
ate sympathy. "
