Tlio Charter's Prospects.
LINCOLN , Nob. , March 0. [ Special to TUB
Bun. ] The Omaha charter bill was road the
first time in the scnato this afternoon. It
will probably bo read a second time to-uior-
mow and referred to the committee on mu
nicipal affalcs , which consists of Senators
Howe , Hoover , Cornell , Raymond undljams.
The bill has thirty-nine largo printed pages ,
and will require considerable time for Its
consideration. The street railway compa-
lies and the board of.publie works willprob-
ibly put in au appearance , but the Intluonco
of the Omaha senators will determine the
action of the committee and the senate.
while those gentlemen arc not fully agreed
as to the clause rnlativo to the paving be
tween street car tracks they fear that if the
senate amend the bill It will delay final action
and may bo fatal to Us passage In the houso.
At the present writing ull three Omaha sen
ators express themselves as opposed to any
imendment of tlio bill in the senate. Unless
they succumb to the outside pressure the bill
will go through flying , although it may not
be reported until next woolr.

to THU BKK.J General Harrison hosamas-
cott. Eight years ago , when he was inaug
urated , General Garlleld had n yellow dog.
Harrison has a brmdlo cat. About six
months before Gariield was nominated ho
was wMking from a street car to his resi
dence In this city , when he observed a yellow
cur watching him furtively and looking us
though ho hadn't a friend iu the world. The
general's sympathetic heart was touched ,
and he said , "Poordogl" That settled it.
The dog followed him to his house , and the
general threw him a few scraps on which to
subsist until the regular appropriation became -
came available. The dog felt encouraged ,
and ho called again and again until ho
came to be regarded as n member of
the household. But one day he suddenly
disappeared and remained away uutll the
4th of March. As Gariield was riding to the
capitol that day ho noticed the yellow dog
under the carriage , and ho remained at the
white Uouso until Garflold was shot. His
bowlines were so annoying that ho had to bo
removed and was never seen again.
The Harrison cat is called Dan. Ills gen
eral color is a golden yellow , almost auburn
except over hisleftoye , where nature planted
[ i largo black patch. An odd looking portion
3f Dan's anatomy is Ills tail , which has. been
so nboreviated by accident or design that it is
i scant three inches long , witli a hairluss tip
to it that is us flat as the top of a pill box , yet
in spite of tiieso physical disadvantages , and
iiotwithstnnding the fact that about a two-
inch square of fur had been scalded off his
ixiclc , thin is n rather distinguished looking
: at. He llrst attracted attention on Tucs-
lay last in the neighborhood of Nintti street
ind Maryland avenue , when the president's
> artyarrived. . That same evening just be
fore sundown Private Secretary Halford
itumbtcd over something in the hallway of
.he Johnson annex to the Arlington. Jn the
nidcavor to save himself ho put his right
° oot down so hard that had Dan's tail been
if normal length It would have been crushed
) ut of shape. Th e casualty was repeated at
ha ofilcc and a force of servants was. sent
mt on'tho skirmish line to remove the of-
'ender. Ho was discovered and fired out ,
nit that did not dispose of him nnd he has
joen around ever since.
