'llus week has been characterized by nn til-

It looks as if somethlyg will bo done ne\l

talbed unless the farmeis in the house do-
\elop stillli'icnt backbone to stand up for
principle and stiikc out thu name of the
Union 1'acillj atlornej and chief of the oil
loom gang from the bill creating "i'liurston
county. " This bill has been pushed with
much energy and pei Mstence in the senate
by a couple ; of lobbyists from 1'eiuicr ,
who niiled by railroad lackeys htivo suc
ceeded in getting the bill through that body
with only four dissenting voles. In the
house it will not bo so unanimous
The efforts of Church Howe and his gaiifi
to create a division among the farmeis in
the house on trilling matteis so they may let
go on the purse strings of the state is not
pioving a brilliant success. The farmers
fully undcibtand each other and cannot be
nplit up in factions so easily as the boodlew
audrailioid crowd may imagine.
The "Sutherland lesolution" requcstinR
the railway commission to i educe freight
rates m this state , which was tabled in the
senate by a vote of 17 to 14 , was introduced
in the bouse by Johnson ol Phclps u fo-v
days ago , and will go thiongh that body
with a rush that will fairly take the railroad
cappers oft their feet.
There is no concealing the fact that ill-
feeling between the house audscimto is beuiR
engcndeicil , which may at any time break
out In an open ruptmc The mombois of the
house complain that the senate will not ton-
bidcr the bills sent them by that bod\ , but
put in all their tnno milling the senate bill' .
through and thrusting them upon the house.
If tills is continued much longer the house
will retaliate , and a practical deadlock will
bo the result.
A majority of the momhcis of the house
aie honestly in favor of some railroad legis
lation that will relieve the people from the
extortion now practiced upon them , but it
seems almost impossible to unite upon any
one line of action. Some favor a maximum
tanfl , othcis an elective commission , and
sumo think the commission .should > bo abolished
ished and a few general laws to prevent dis
crimination should be enacted. This clement
it growing rapidly in numbers , and Colo-
man's bill to knock out the Commission is
going to reccUc stiong support.

Uzoilccl xxxiii , U. "Say unto them 'as 1
live , ' Haltli the Lord God , 'I have no pleasure
in the death of the wicked ; but that the
wiclioti turn from his way and live ; turn ye ,
turn 10 from your wicked ways , for why
would jedlo , O house ot Israeli' "
Mr , Potter spoke of his subject as a
Hcht house , planted by God nlong the
shores of danger It taught three Ihlncs.
Klrst , the lost CJitdltidn of thc , wu-ked , ed
oilrt , the desire nftJod ti iuo the wicked ,
and third , ttie reluctance of the wicked to be
saved God had tie pleasmo In tin. ' delta of
ittn man , but men Would not tnkc eternal
Ufa , though salvation was as treH > as tht >
water that runs down the sides of the moun
tains. Some pprsons argiied that they did
not coim into the Uoild of their own \oli
tion. The cicator broupht them into it ,
nnd If Ho desiied to send their deathless
souls into the pit of perdition Ho omild do it
Such people wore not honest with th" mllnlto
power , nor were tiny consistent with their
own poor souls. Because n man did not
come Into the world of his own volition was
no excuse for his treating his Creator In such
n nuinner. Ho was on the waters of Satan's
Black sea.

A large number rupahed to the parlors of
the Gutu City Athletic. Club last night to wit
ness some expert billiard playing by Kiigene
Gaiter , of Chicago , mid Fiank Ives , of Cleve
land Carter is thu champion three ball
carom shot of the world , while Ives is the
young protege of Jacob Sch liter und is re
guided the best masse shot in the United
Slates , nnd also the coming man in the circle
of champions. Ho Is but twenty-two jears
of ago and is even now an expei t.
The eiitcitiiiiiment opened last night in a
balk line contest of 200 points Lieutenant
James Ariowsmith , of Fort Omah i , who is
rated as a master of the cue , was chosen
icfeiec Cutter opened with n run o I id ,
falling shot t on a left draw in a masse. 1 vcs
followed with a lun ot 12 , failing also in a
masse. This was kept up with scores aver
aging below this until the eleventh inning ,
when Curler closed the game hi n inn
of 5'J and was declared the winner.
The tuns made beither , in no
way indicated the ability of making more
points ns the plaei s manipulated the balls
so that in most instances expoit pi tying in
order to scoio a point was requited. In
closing the iun Carter cntei tamed the audi
ence by pel forming some of the most miiac-
ulous shots that h ivo ever been witnessed by
the bust patt ous of the game.
The second gamcv was a 7. point cushion
catom , but was only an exhibition game , in
which masse playing was mostly rosoitoel to.
Ivcs won the game , scaling 3b points in the
lifth inning. The individuals that cntci tallied

The Object of Hit , Present Visit to
S. II. H. Claik , vice m evident and general
manager ot the Union Pacific , also Jay
Gould's right hand man , ariivcd in Omaha
all ) o'clock Wednesday evening , und is at
picscnt a guest in the Nebraska metropolis.
His art hal has set gossip in motion in con
nection with several projects , but the pic-
raihng opinion is that tic U hero to put fpct
plans of consolidation between thu sheet
lailway and cable tramwa > company. His
stated that some time .1 0 Mi C'hu k dis
posed of his interest m the stieot railway in
Omaha to the remaining stockholders , and
virtually disconnected himself fiom the en
terprise. He is said to have disposed of his
stock at about face value , ft ant which $ J.VJ-
000 was rcali/ed. The transaction was fol
lowed up , it is stated , by a partial payment ,
and that the major poi lion of thu amount is
still invested in securities of the company.
It now transpire" that Mr. has been
induced to reconsider bis action , and has
concluded to invest heavily in the
consolidated system. Tliuisciay afternoon
n mooting of the topresentativu piojectois o'f
the consolidating scheme was held in thu
parlors of the Omaha club , at which Mr.
Claik was present. The ilcllhoiution was in
strict secteey and none of thosu in attend
ance would divulge any of the tiansactions
when questioned. Fiank Murphy , of the
Moichants National bank , who was picscnt ,
admitted that a eonfurunce with Mr. Clark
was had , but refused to divulge the tcsult or
the tenor of the confcionce Lite in the
afternoon Mr. Clark was found at the Millard -
lard hotel , but was closeted with Frank
Hanlon and Thomas Swobe , and the repnitcr
was compelled to linger in the corridors until
the individuals concluded their star chamber
session. Finally , Mr Claris emerged fiom
the room , and when questioned concerning
his mission huru , said :
It is largely on pi ivate business with a
little ortielal business mixed Up. "
"is it a fact that jou have- disposed of your
iiiteicit in the hoisc lailway company hciei"
"Ves "
"Is it not also a fact that you b ivo lecon-
sideied the mattur of relinquishing your m-
teicsts and h ivo concluded to invest heavily
in the consolidated ptantf '
"Well , I hnvo sold out my interest in the
street railway eompiny and am here , as I
stated , on piivntu business hugely "
"Does not the pnvate business tulate to
your puichasing an intoiost in Jtho consoli
dated street car lines ) "
" 1 amnot prenaicd to state just what it is. "
" \ \ hat dnl you accomplish at the meeting
this iifteinoonl"
"Wu did not have a mooting , "
"But Mr. Murphy but a few minutes ago ,
informed mu that a muutlng was held , at
which certain individuals woiu present , anil
you among the number "
"Mr. Murphy tolu jou , did ho ! Well , it
wasapiivale meeting and 1 cannot toll , \ou
what was done. "
Onserving that Mr. Clailc had decided to
hermetically seal hi lips against giving unv
of the desboil information , the qucrj as lo
how the railway wxrld appeared to him was
prciiKuimlcd In response ho tinted that
trafllc was vxtremeli light all over the coun
trj , and that the earnings ot all mads were
being cut down He attributed the disaster
to an excess in the eonstruoiuin f > f tnllroads
and the feverish condition In which freight
latps have boon Uept bj the western roads
during the past few years A * regards the
pending agreements of the president * , Mr
Clark state 1 that the * prospects for It being
consummated were not ver.\ promising ut
present , but that the project was a wise tin
dertakmg. n-id undoubtedU il the agreement
was effected it would be accimiuniod in

Father of his coiintr. * as we ll as thu courts

not due to patriotic feelings nearly so much
as to the cold weather. Thuisday , Architect
Myers mid the commissioners agreed lo so
led Iwo local nichilccts who should \isit the
county hospital building yesturda.\ and make
mi examination Into the w oik rotuplaituvl of
and over which all this trouble has ai isen.
Myers selected Henry Voss to represent linn
and thu coiiimissiouei s said they would take
Mr Fisher , fio'ii the llrut of Meiululsslioti ,
Fisher .t Lawi ic.
These selections were satisfactory to every
L Her in the day Mr Voas suggested th it
thp committed WDUld be much stronger and
n oru olTectiyu if a ilrst class and wult known
mechanic could bo added lo it
This suggestion seemed to strike Commis-
sioneis O'Keelle and Mount fnvortbly , s )
they took upon themselves the icspoiislbility
ol naming John F , Coots as the third man.
Then it was agreed that if the mercury
had not diopped below 7ero thc.v would mi-
net lake their investigitlons jester I iv , so as
to icpoi t utthe icgulai weekly moetingof the
boird Siturday But themeicury passed
/eto several degrees , conseipiuntlv no co'ii-
mitteo full like bun ing free/ing blasts for
DIP sake of hastening the settlement of a
dispute that has been growing for months ,
and could II nd no better lime than thu pre
sent , to l > o oioughl befoiu thu people.
Vei.v liltle new Infoimation tegaiding the
matter could be obtained The coiiimis-
sloneis arc icticcnt. Mr. Mount says he was
very much surprised when Myois prenented
Ins loiter lo the board demanding Shane's
"Whuuwoweio in Detroit last summer , "
he continued , "Miers made the remark to
me llieie Unit Shane had to get oft the build
ing or ho would quit. I pud no attention to
it 1 always unduistood that they hud fre
quent spats while constructing the court
house , and that Myers repeatedly threatened
to have Shane discharged , but ho never did.
So far as the points in controversy now aio
concerned , 1 am fieo to confess th H the com
missioners have not been able to Ibid out who
is light. Shatiu claims that the open spice
between the roof and wall cannot bo Illlcd
up until the cornice is pul on. Micrs , on the
other hand , contends that it can and ought to
Iitixe been done long ago. Whether this
tealuic of the quarrel can bo adjusted satis-
faetouly or not remains to bu seen. Archi
tects and builders generally seem to hold
diflcrcnt viuws legaidmg it. "
Another question that has drawn every
body connected with the institution into the
wi angle has rofoicnco to tiie soil of ceilings
and aiehcs that shall be nut in. No ono
seems to understand what the specilications
c ill for. Thu comniissioneis say llieviiiou
for four days to get an explanation or deci
sion from M > crs , but could not succeed Ac-
coi din to the specilications , all parts of tnu
structuie. except that , set aside for the ad-
mmistiation must have buck niches and

claims that only Ibo small or single bed
looms and ceituin hallways arc
to be of brick , anil the
large wards , woik rooms , ofllces , etc. , me to
bo of coirtignteil iron. The contractors ,
however , appear to have understood things
differently. At least they furnished their
bids for the contract in accordance with
Shane's understanding. This is what
biought aboul the row Detwecn the commis
sioners and Brown , who repiesents Hall ,
ICetcham A : Co , the Indianapolis iron maau-
factuiers and furnished the opportunity for
the star chamber session. It was charged
