A CHECK IN HIS CAREER ,
Buddon DIsnppoarnnco of a Olork
I' ' Who Had Stood WoU.
HE HAD SOME PAPER CASHED.
ff ho Mel hod nj- Which Ho Did This
Hns nocn Called Into Borlous
Question 'By ' Hla
Ilnycs Made a Mistake.
The fact became known yesterday that E. J.
Ilnjesca3hicr and bookkeeper for the Crane
manufacturing company , suddenly disap
peared Tuesday morning and has not slnco
been heard of. Discrepancies in some of
his financial transactions , are said to hare
been the direct cause of his unaccounted
Absence , and it it thought ; his accounts nro
several hundred dollars short. On Monday ,
Manager Laity had his attention called to a
check for something llko $100 , that
bad ocoir cashed for Cmno Hros. on Hayes'
endorsement at the Nebraska National bonk
nnd repudiated it on the ground that Mr.
Hayes had no authority to endorse checks.
Several months ago , It seems , Hayes was
empowered to do this , but Mr. Lally says
that the authority has been recently , taken
The bank people claim that they had not
been given any notice to that ofTcct and
cashed the chock without question , ns
they had done many times before.
The 11 rm has no knowledge yet
ns to how much money the young man ob
tained in this way. it is supposed ho had
checks cashed at several of the banks.
When the ono in question came up and was
disputed , Hayes undoubtedly concluded that
his tlmo for disappearing had come. Ho
ivcnt to the ofllco Tuesday mornincr ,
worked half the forenoon , put on his cent
nnd hat , walked out , and that is the lost any
one in Omaha remembers of having seen
Mm. Ho formerly resided at 514 North Six
Mr. Lally , manager of the Crane Bros
lanufncturtng company , said lost night that
Hayes had never been given authority to en
dorse checks in the name of the company.
While they have always dono. their banking
with the Merchants National , Hayes had
taken these checks to the Nebraska National ,
knowing very well that they would not bo
cashed at the bank at which the compan
transacted its business.
Mr. Lally said that ho was absent , being
in Chicago , when Hayes had the check
cashed , but that slnco the denouement ho had
learned that sotno ol the olllcials of the No-
brnskit National questioned the validity of
the check and sent over to the company's
ofilco and made Hayes rafuad the money.
The first intimation Mr. Lally received of
nny irregularity , was through Cashier Woods
of the Merchant's National who had hoard of
thu affair. Mr. Woods sent a messenger to
Crane Bros' , ofllcc requesting- . Lally to
call at the bank. Hayes received the mes
sage nnd delivered it to Mr. Lally. When
Mr. Lally returned , Hayes , who evidently
had suspected that his misbehavior had been
discovered , had disappeared nnd hasn't been
Been since by his former employer or about
Mr. Lally says that ho does not think the
company will lose any money by Hayes' de
falcation , ns ho is of the opinion that ho can
hold the bank for the amount of the check.
An effort will bo made to llnd the delinquent
one nnd bring him to Justice.
Hayes , before ho became connected with
Crane Bros. , was employed at the Nebraska
National bank. Ho has a mother , sister and
brother residing in the city , who feel the
disgrace of their son and brother keenly.
Mr. Lally said that he had always consid
ered Hayes nn exemplary young man , but
that since his disappearance ho has learned
that ho was In the habit of spending money
lavishly and had habits inconsistent with a
good moral character.
A reporter called on Mr. Henry Yates ,
president of the Nebraska National , and that
gentleman said ho believed the trouble- would
bo straightened out satisfactory to every
body. His theory of the affair Is that Hayes
has gone on a spree , and wncn ho guts sobei
will return. A rumor to the effect that Mr ,
Richardson , teller of the bank , had been dis
tchargcd for accepting and cashing the pro
cstcd check is without foundation. Within
two hours after taking it ho went to Hayes
nnd got the money buck. The check called
lor something Ilka f l. > 0 , instead of $100 , u :
flrst * reported , and when Richardson de
manded the.rcturn of the cash from Hayes
ho had then spent $100 and was compelled tc
borrow that amount from his brother in ordci
to" make the account good.

A UNION DEPOT.
Omntiix In to Secure n Structure
For some time post the Uulon 1'aclfic has
been taking steps toward the construction of
a union depot In Omaha.
Plans nnd profiles hnvo repeatedly been
dntwn for this , thus far , mythical structure ,
but , on each occasion , have the hopes of the
projectors been blasted , However , that a
movement toward a depot , of which some
thing may bo expected , is now progressing ,
Is admitted , but nsdo ! from the project on
paper , nothing has as yet been consummated.
For the post flvo months th'o Burlington
and the Union Pacific have been endeavor
ing to agree upon a plan for n union depot at
this place. Owing Iff the existing circum
stances considerable preliminary work had
to bo done before any definite movement
could be made. One of the most
important of the preliminary ar
rangements was the disposition of the
earnings , n largo percentage of which would
arise from the crossing of the Union Pacific
bridge by trains on the Iowa side. The Bur
lington not only wanted to secure a part of
the income from the depot proper , but also
demanded that a certain percentage of the
other bo granted. After a thorough consid
eration , it i stated that the Union Pacillo
agreed to the Burlington's demand. Both
companies then drafted plans for a depot ,
estimating the cost of the building nnd
grounds at $1,509,000. The site for tno build
ing in both instances was the ground now
occupied by the passenger depots of the
Union Pacific nnd Burlington on
South Tenth street. The Union Pn-
ciflo plans provide for n building on
the site of the present dcpotof that company ,
with a ground surface of 30 $ feet in length ,
cast and west , and 8 $ feet wide , north ( hid
south. The shed which Is now being used is
a part of the now structure , but the building
proper is to bo entirely new , of brick with
Btono facing , and to bo of gothlcdesigns with
twenty-eight-foot posts , making It the height
ot the average four-story building. It wilt
also bo adorned with a tower which will
extend thirty feet above the roof. In
connection with this the upper portion
of the building is assigned to onices , and the
lower portion will bo used as ticket ofllce ,
waiting-rooms , baggage rooms and express
depot. As nn auproach , a viaduct over the
Tenth street yards is to bo built , which will
be used for vehicles and pedestrians , nnd will
bo on a level with its second story. The cost
of this feature is to bo defrayed oy tno city
of Omaha. The Union Pacillo plans also-
provide for an entry and delivery of all pas
sengers and baggage on the north sldo of the
The Burlington has a set of plans which
closely conform with that of the Union Pa
cific nsido from the main entrance nnd de
livery being on the south side. The shed also
reversed and placed on the south side nr ' . on
thu further side ol the latter there Is provided
for the construction of a baggage depart
ment twenty feet in width nnd 3s3 feet -in
length. In both instances , the amount In
As yet neither plan has been decided upon.
At present the propositions nro In the hands
of President Adams of the Union Pacific and
President Perkins of the Burlington and
upon the decision and agreement of these
individuals hinges the commencement of thu
The officials of the respective roads were
questioned this morning.concerning the mat
ter and admitted that the above was under
consideration by the presidents aud that in
all probabdity the Union Pacific plan would
bo adopted. President Adams will submit
the proposed project at the meeting of the di
rectors to be held in Boston April 24 , and at
which time a Joint conference between the
directorates of both roads on this matter will
bo had. Independent lines , that is , the Iowa
roads which fail to enter into the deal , will
be allowed to cross the Union Pacific bridge
and enter the union , denot by paying a pro
rata rate to be agreed upon Jointly by the
roads interested in the building.
Following up this project the Union Pacific
will convert its ground on Tenth street into
passenger yards , and the freight depot will
bo located at the foot of Jackson street. An
inbound freight yard is also to be established
In connection with its freight trade , a
rumor is in circulation to the effect that
another bridge is to bo constructed for the
use of freight trains only , and that this will
span the river from the foot of Jackson
street. These arrangements provide for the
maintenance of the transfer and freight
yards at Council Bluffs as * at present , and
the passenger service will bo conducted at
the Bluffs , but upon a minor scale. The
most important feature of the move
ment aside from the building of
its depot is . that Omaha will
bp made the terminal point of the Union Pa
cific and also of all the Iowa lines on the
west which will make Omaha n port of entry
and delivery which , it is said , will be a great
auxiliary to the commercial resources of
this city. The carrying out of this prdjcct
awaits the action of the directorates of both
the Burlington nnd Union Pacific and an
official of the latter who is in a position to
know what ho is saying states that m nil
probaollity an argument will bo reached and
that the long desired structure will be con
structed ; also that none but railway capital
will bo invested in the building.
LOCAL TRAIN SERVICE : .
Inu-a Lines Out Off 15O.OOO Miles of
Service Per Month.
It is stated that the Iowa lines have do-
tided to counteract , the work of the railway
commission of that state and that , out of the
numerous local trains that were in service
up to a short time ago , not one is being run
at the present time all the traftic being han
dled by the mainline trains. A renort re
ceived in Omaha yesterday from Vice Chair
man Daniels of the Central Traffic association ,
shows that the reduction In train service in
this way will foot uu 150,000 per month ,
which , at a low estimate , results in the sav
ing ot about $30,009 per month to th3 Iowa
As regards the local train service of Ne
braska , the Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri
Valley and the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapo
lis & Omaha hnvo taken the only steps , it is
said , in reducing their local train service. In
both Instances the work has rovertcd to the
through or main line trains.
The olllcials of the Iowa lines have dccldpd
that a reduction lu rates can only bo met by
a corresponding reduction in accommoda
tions to the public. It is rumored that the
Milwaukee road is figuring on taking off its
trains to a largo extent on the line between
Muson City , la , , nnd Austin , Minn. The
abandonment of trains both in Iowa and
Nebraska 1ms been the cause of more or loss
complaints and Inland towns uro seriously
affected it is claimed for the reason that
transportation facilities are largely reduced ,
and at certain points and certain periods un
Weighing ; System Abandoned.
The weighing of livestock at Omaha and
South Omaha which was suspended about
four weeks ago has been abandoned , nnd the
roads hava resorted permanently to the
handling of live stock in car lots. It was
thought that the railway commission of Kun
sas would rescind its action in ordering the
weighing system in that state abolished , but
this having failed the roads to-day decided
to abandon the weighing system at those
two points and also nt Nebraska City , Plaits-
mouth and all local points west of the Mis
A Committee- Inspection.
The officials of the Union Pacific yesterday
received notification to the effect that on
April 0 , the special senatorial committee on
Pacillo railway legislation would meet at
Chicago on April 8 , the committee would
arrive in Omalia , and from hero an Inspec
tion of the Union and Central Pa-
citio system will bo mado. The
committee will spend six weeks lookIng -
Ing into certain matters connected with
two roads. H Is stated that this was brought
about through the discussion of the merit *
and demerits of the > Outhwalte funding bill
Conservative ttiinuora are of the opinion that
the cominlttoo will either recommend the
passage of the bill referred to , or the
declaration of insolvency and the appoint
incnt of a receiver. It is likely that Presi
dent Adams will accompany the committee
on its tour of inspection.

AN OPEN' QUESTION.
Is Harrison n Descendant or Pocn-
It is popularly believed that Prosi-
Icnt Harrison is descended from Poca-
tiontas and from the parliamentary
soldi or and regicide General Thomas
Harrison , who was executed in 1060.
Poenhontas , daughter of Powhatan ,
manifested a friendliness for the early
white settlers of Virginia when she ,
was but a pirl. The story of how she
saved the life of Captain John Smith ,
who had been captured and condemned
to death by her father is well known
to all acquainted with the early history
of America. Her subsequent marriage
with John Rolfe , an Englishman her
removal to England where a son was
born , from whom numerous wealthy
families of Virginia claim descent
is the basis of the opinion that Prosit
dent Harrison is ono of her descend
ants.The name of Harrison is already in
delibly written upon thepapesof Amor-
fcan history , for General William Hen
ry Harrison the ninth president of the
United States was the grandfather of
General Bon. Harrison.
The inauguration of another member
of the Harrison family is but another
proof of the disposition of the public to
return to n healthy administration of
public affairs so characteristic of earlier
years. A similar desire has been man
ifested for a revival of early customs in
various ways , of which mention can bo
made of tno prevailing demand for
those old time preparations which were
so successfully employed in the pre
vention and cure of the ills which fre
quented the early log cabin homes.
After much inquiry a noted manu
facturer has procured the original
methods used in their preparation and
again under the name of Warner's Log
Cabin Remedies , the public is pos
sessed of those well-known preparations
for tno cure of coughs , colds , consump
tion in its early stages , blood disorders ,
catarrh , dysposia , debility , and ether
Notwithstanding the large amount of
attention which the manufacture of
Warner's Safe Cure demands its well-
known reputation as the only remedy
for the prevention and cure of kidney
diseases being world wide the manu
facturer is resolved to push the merit
of Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla to
the front because of its splendid blood
purifying properties and great value as
a household remedy.
Will It Bo Used In the Prosecution of
Miss Bcoohlcr ?
The prospects arc very favorable for
Elizabeth Beechler , the fair slayer of Harry
King , being put on trial ono week from next
Monday. The lawyers think they will be
ready to proceed with the case by that time.
The woman has repeatedly expressed her
anxiety to have tno matter over , that she
may know her fate as soon as possible. The
life in Jail and its attendant expectations as
to the result nro becoming irksome and
causing the fair p-lsonor to give evidence of
failure both in body and spirits.
It is difficult to predict Just what course
will bo pursued in the trial until Henry
King , sr. , father of the slain man. decides
whether ho will personally assist the state
by employing additional counsel for the
prosecution. On his action hinges the em
ployment of a special attorney to assist
County Attorney Mahonny. It is understood
that , within the past month , Mr. King en
tertained serious doubts as to whether he
would do 'more than merely furnish
the slate with such information nnd
evidence as it might require of him , though
bo is to definitely determine-his course some
time this week. Since the day of her ar
raignment , which was the first time sinca
committing the crime , that she had been
brought into the presence of a crowd , Miss
Bccchlcr has boon more eager than she was
bcforo to face the prosecution and have her
story told to the court.

Omalia , Nob. March 14 , 183D. |
Mr. W. S. Soavoy , Chief of Police , City-
Dear Sir : It has boon my policy to brine
about a gradual compliance with laws which
were not enforced , and In a manner which
would produce the least friction. In my
treatment of the liquor clement I have boon
conservative and trusted to the good
scnso ot those engaged in tnat
business to promote their own interest
by a cheerful and voluntary compliance with
the laws. The propositions for an amend
ment to the constitution cither for prohibit
ing or high license will bo submitted ( or the
suffrages of the people a year from next fall.
I am personally in favor of high license and
am well aware of the disadvantages to which
the frlonds of tncasuro would bo put ware
the advocates of prohibition able to point to
Omaha ( as they would do and hnvo done In
other states ) as a glaring example
of the inefficiency of the high license
law. Because it is the law and is right , you
will please notify all saloonkeepers to close
their places of business hereafteron Sunday.
Respectfully , W. J. BuoATCti , Mayor.
Upon receivlne the above. Chief Seavey
immediately issued an order to the following
That Sergeant Slgwart and Officer Pu-
Inskiarcdetailed to notify all saloon keepers

not comulying with this order , but are not to
The Mayor Interviewed.
"I intend to exact a conservative enforce-
meut of the law and do not wish' to do any
thing harsh , " suid Mayor Broatch last night ,
but I fcol that it is in the interest of saloon
keepers generally to give a cheerful compli
ance to the law as it is laid down. My idea
all through has bean to educate the people tea
a gradual compliance with the requirements
of the law , and 1 have endeavored to do this ,
although at times the work seemed difficult.
Omaha has been held up as u model high
icenso city , and I have received numberless
letters as to how the system worked. I re
ceived ono from Pennsylvania the other day ,
which credited a prohibition lecturer with
saying that the only way saloonkeepers
could raise their license was by running
a gambling house attacnmcnt or by
throwing their saloons open to prostitutes
for whom they paid a monthly license of $10.
Of course I at once wrote a contradiction ,
jiu that letter Is only a sample of those I al
most daily receive. It is the same In IseJ
jraska , where Omaha is held up as an ex
ample of the inefficiency of the high license
law. Just because the Sunday closing section
of the act has not "been enforced. I think
Chat these cries should bo. stopped , and I
think that the real interest of the city and
the liquor elementas. well requires that the
law as it now stands bo complied with , so as
not to leave a cudgel in the hands of tno pro-
hiDitlonists when the campaign opens in this
state. Prom what" I have seen , I think a
largo majority of the" Omaha saloon keepers ,
arc law abiding , add willing to comply with
what they know isJaw. A few of them maybe
bo guilty of technical offenses , and wo have
no desire to deal harshly with such , but there
are some who wilfully and openly defy the
law , and they can expect uo jenicncy. The
law will bo enforced. "

are the arguments we have always used to influence trade and these
telling figures have always brought us the customers , and we will al I
ways depend on them for the biggest share of the clothing trade. Our 'U
business has been built up on the plan of low prices and we mean to
continue on the same plan , Our stock this season is unlimited and this
gives the buyer unlimited choice. We display hundreds of styles of
spring suits. Here are a few of the bargains we start the season with
One lot of nice all wool Cheviot Suits , lined with good farmer's satin ,
at $4.75. This is an honest suit , well made. At no time has such a
suit been sold at less than $7.50.
One lot of really nice cassimere suits , a neat dark mixture at $5.90.
This suit is lined with good serge , made substantially and we recom
mend it for excellent wear.
We have always had the reputation for the best line o well-made medium priced suit3 I
say at $8 , $9 and $10. Knowing that the great majority of customers prefer application.'U ,
have always taken pains to give the greatest possible value that could be put into a suit
at that price. The line of $ S , $9 and $10 suits which we display this season is far ahead
of anything shown formerly. Wo unhesitatingly claim that with every suit you buy of
us at that price you save at least from $5 to $ G. We have this season added to our line of
$10 suits an extraordinary bargain in the shape of a splendid corkscrew suit The mate 3
rial is all worsted and of very fine quality , lined with best farmer satin. We have them
in sacks and frocks , all sizes , from 35 to i2. The suit is of good weight and will make an
excellent dress suit. At ten dollars we pronounce it the greatest bargain eVer offered , and
we guarantee it is in every respect as good as any suit for which " other houses are asking
$16 or $18.
Price means nothing until you see the goods. We want every careful buyer to take time tc examine our gar
nieuts and note every detail of lining , trimming aud finish.
MAIL ORDERS Receive prompt attention and we send samples and rules for measuring on application.

Can Dr. Ralph Promise It to Consum
ers in this City ?
A reporter called on city physician Ralph
yesterday nnd enquired in what manner
10 intended to see that the city of Omaha
should have nothing but pure milk.
He said that ho would accomplish this by
simply compelling the milk inspectors to
submit to him once every week , a report of
their inspection , and that every suspicious
case would bo vigorously taken hold of and
investigated. In case of the conviction
of nny milk man the very severest penalty
of the lav/ Would bo visited upon him.
The doctor was then askol about the sys
tem of testing used by these so-called inspectors
specters , and rcjilicd that they used both the
acetic acid and lachUimeter systems , supple
menting these , not infrequently with a
chemical analysis by some competent chemist.
The hydrometer , as a determinator of the
purity or impurit.y ot milk.it is a well known
fact , has long been proven ineffective if not
utterly useless , while the use of acids is
also unsatisfactory. The only true test , ns a
well-known physician remarked to THE
BED man is by chemical analysis. There are
1S2 milk men in the city of Omaha , and some
of them , hinted the doctor , are very "fly" in
their devices to cheat Hickstem's lactometer ,
and he hadn't any doubts but that four out
of cvnry five milkmen dealt not only in
highlv adulterated milk , but impure milk-
milk that ought not to be used for nny pur
pose. He added that Dr. Ralph could
not bo too strict in this matter , as
in the hot summer months impure milk was
the source of much serious sickness.
"The system of detecting Impure milk , as
at present practiced in this city is a failure. "
said a tax-payer to-day. "Dr. Ralph knows
it is. He also knows that his boast about
letting us have only pure milk is a sham.
How can ho prevent iti Milk cannot bo
tested now without a cost of about $20 tor
every chemical analysis. Dr. Ralph knows
ho can't make such a test , and such being
the case ought not to bo nt the head of the
board of health. The city physician ought
to bo a chemist , and then ho would bo able
to determine for himself whether milk were
pure 01 otherwise.
Complexion.powder is an absolute ne
cessity of the refined toilet in this cli-
mnto. Pozonni's combines every ele
ment of beauty und purity.
