The Inquiry Into the charges against Com
mandant Hammond , of the soldiers' anil sail *
ors homo , wai concluded Wednesday last.
What action the governor \vlll tuko In the
.matter Is not yet known , but It Is thought
that he will make no changes. It U under
stood that the board of public lands and
buildings will make no recommendation.
And , In view of the fact that hut six ot the
inmates ot the homo had complaints and
f.'rlcvnnccs against the management of the
institution , It Is urged by friends of the com
mandant that there is not suQlciont reason to
warrant a call for his resignation. Fifty of
the ilfty-six Inmates of the homo testified
that they wore well clothed , well
fed nnd uniformly well treated.
Whllo this was so , however , the
testimony Indicated that the commandant
was Inclined to bo peevish and Irritable , and
at times displayed considerable temper. The
Kovcrnor returned frontQrand Island to-doy.
having tarried n day after the departure of
the board of public lands and buildings and
the advisory board. It Is said that the cov
er nor was bent on going to the bottom of
everything , and In reply to the Intorogatory
of Tun Hun representative ' 'how did you
Jlnd mutters ! " he said : "As usual In such
cases , the charges against Commandant
Hammond wcro greatly exaggerated. I am
very buiy and have nothing further to say
at thin time. "
Btiproino Court Ilooint Changed.
Not long ago the board of public lands and
buildings assigned the rooms formerly oc
cupied by the governor , on the second lloor ,
for the temporary use of the supreme court.
It is understood that this was douoln accord
ance with a request of the members of the
supreme bench , who evidently fool that their
rights lu all things have not been maintained ,
nnd especially regarding the assignment of
rooms for the various departments of state.
Albeit , the rooms just assigned for temporary
relief wcro occupied to-day , and the supreme
court will continue the adjourned session
of the court In now quarters next
week. The court room proper Is
precisely the same size of the room vacated ,
and no portion of the library had yet been
moved. Hut two small rooms on cither side
will add to the general conveniences. It now
begin * to look as though the handsome suit
of rooms Just above the oxccutlvo depart
niont will have to go bogging. Hut the tem
porary rooms will bo cooler and more pleas-
nnt than the old.
Kmuloycfl on the Anxious Scat.
The Burlington ofllclalsMessrs. , Holdrego ,
Stone , Poascloy , Culvert , all of the division
superintendents and assistant superintend
ents , were hero to-day In consultation as tc
_ the advisability of cutting down the force ol
the road's employes , in all departments , al
least 20 per cent. Thii move creates a good
deal of excitement among the employes ol
the road , and many of them rfro consequently
on the anxious seat. The action of the con <
fcroiico cannot yet bo ascertained , but the
feeling Is strong that thcro will bo a general
lopping off of the company's help.
The following significant resolutions wore
passed at the April meeting of the board ol
repents , which closed yesterday :
Whereas , The congressional cstabllshlnp
act approved July 2 , 1882 , makes it the load
ing object of the Industrial college "to teach
these branches of learning which are related
to agriculture and the mechanical arts , " and
Whereas , The natur&l and physical sci
ences are all In some degree related to agrl-
culture nnd the mechanic arts. , so that the
industrial college Is obliged by the terms ol
its organlo law to maintain a course of sci-
outlfio Instruction as its "leading object , "
Whorcas , Tlio logical relation ot the sol-
ontifio eoursu TO the technical course of the
industrial college ( the technical course being
branches or special development of the sci-
entitle course ) also demands that the in
dustrial college should maintain a scientific
course , and
Whorcas , It is not expedient or economical
to duplicate In any college of the university t
course maintained m another college of the
same university , therefore , bo it
Resolved , That the scientific courses of
, study shall hereafter bo a part of the in
dustrial college , and that the students pursu
ing said course shall bo catalogued a ;
students of the Industrial college.
The sentiment is strong hero that the reso
lutions are p confession that heretofore the
industrial college bad not been in conformity
with the congressional act granting lands lei
the ondowcmcnt of a college of agriculture
and the mechanic arts. In support of this
vioWjit is said that the catalogues have ncvoi
shown that any work to speak of was being
done by the college , under the grant , and the
charge has therefore been mudo that the
funds have bcon misappropriated.

Bald Yes , it Is n good thing to agitato.
This Is , you might say , n vast territory not
represented m ono of our chief commercial
bodies. Uy selecting n man west of the
Missouri wo would bo represented , nnd when
an Issue cntno up that applied to western
matters , there would bo at least one man on
the board familiar with our requirements. I
am of the opinion that J. M. Woolworth would
bo a good man to urge for the position.
Yes , 1 Intend to bring this to an issue
nnd will call for a meeting of the directors

should all labor in that direction.
N. Morrlam It is our duty as business
man to unlto In the Issue nnd push some good
nifln to the front forthoposition. The trans-
Missouri territory is the producing territory
of the United States. It is an Important
factor In commercial sources. Wo should en
deavor to obtain recognition on the commis

man familiar with the requirements and
needs of our people.
P. K. Hlmobaugh It Is a grand Idoa. The

' .ho territory and Its demands , when n quos <

J. C. Phlllppl It Is essential that the ter

Platte County's Robbery.

did not know that such a rcprohensiblo
move was contemplated. Many of these
who do know it look upon It as n schema to
make money for two or three attorneys , ono
of whom Is a partner of J. E. North.
Hundreds of people favor the buyIng -
Ing of the bonds , bocauno it is
only just , and also because the repudiation
has so Injured the credit of the count } ' that
recently some of Its bonds were returned
from Now York. Tun BEE'S disclosures , "

tion of president of 'ho colony. Other officers
were also dlsehareed , nnd now ones put In
their stead. At last night's meeting Captain
Smith was reinstated as president nnd
Daniel O'Neill , of South Omaha , was ng.iln
put buck iu the treasurer's ' position. But
the organization they nro now leaders of is

The newly elected president stated that
the purpose of the meeting was to enroll
names for membership to thu colony , und to
tnko measures to keep the colony together
after its members arrived in the now land of
wealth. Whou they nrrived there , ho said ,
they would have to make tholr own laws for
protection until congress took the proper
steps. At present there were only martial
laws. For this reason und for protection
members of the cojony would be under obli
gations , to stick together. Mr. Smith
referred to the oilier colony ns n
town site company ; said that West ,
its president was a schemer , and had no in
tention of becoming n settler or taking up
land. Ho also referred to how he ( Smith )
hud been dismissed from his position , ana
how Mr. West had bocn placed In it. Ho was
glad to know thnt thq'colony liud enough con
fidence in him to roll/state / him. Mr. Smltli
spent some tlmo in extolling himself.
There uro about four ; hundred nnd fifty in

STOKING FRAMCIjCNB FIAUD.
Inventions Which Will Do Away with
A largo audience nt the Y , M , O. A. con
cert hall last night took deep interest in the
efforts ot Mr. Harry A. Kinney , of Chicago ,
: o explain by a lecture nnd demonstrations
the sources , characteristics nnd appliances
of the subtle power known ns electricity.
The room was filled with electrical appli
ances to bo used In making the domonstrn-
Wall mottoes were festooned with gaily col
ored Incandescent lamps , whllo phonographs ,
lire alarms , annunciators , are lights and
elect cio cartridges wcro arranged for use In
the experiments to bo mndo. Mr. Kinney ,
after n brief history of electricity , proceeded
to show the manner iu which it is applied In
commercial nnd domestic uses. - Ho first
showed the effect of u current of electricity
[ mssinc through rarefied air nnd , by darken
ing the room , gnvc n charming rep
resentation , lu n frameon the wall ,
of the nurora boronlls. The hcntlng
poxvcr of the olcctrlo current was
demonstrated by burning copper ami stcot
wires lu nn nro lamp und by smelting copper
nnd other ores in n crublclo healed by nn
jlectric current. Ho popped corn nnd ran n
tawing machine at the rate of 5,030 stitches
n minute , operated n phonograph , rang In
tire alarms , fired cartridges nnd performed n
number of other interesting experiments by
the use of the same power.
Mr. Klnnoylast night touched but briefly
upon the use of the intcit addition to the
long list of appliances that hnvo bcon In
vented for the hotter use of electricity , nnd
ono thnt promises to revolutionize the sys
tems of motor power now In uso. The Pum-
polly Storage Battery , for which
Mr. Kinney Is ngont , Is a contri
vance which promises to do nwny
with overhead wires In the operation
of electric motor railways , nnd to solve the
problem of heating nnd lighting rnliwny cars.
In nil storugo cells heretofore used the plates
Imvo been set vertically , with nothlnu bo-
Lwoon the positives und negatives , and thus
being easily broken by handling or the Jar
ring incident to thu progress of u car were lia
ble to fnjl In such n way as to connect the
[ ilntes , aud thus causa a short circuit and
iuilphntlngot the plates , rendering them use
less. Mr. 1'u m polly has overcome this dif
ficulty by arranging his plates to Ho hori
zontally , the active material being held In
pluco by shoots of asbestos , making It impossible -
possible for the plates to fall nnd shorten the
circuit. His standard cell is composed of
cloven positive nnd twelve negative plates ,
each UJxn ) < Inches in a vulcanite case , the
whole weighing but thirty-two pounds.
Thcso culls have been in n practical use for
one year. Tholr general construction and
special devices must make them peculiarly
free from the dangers nnd difficulties which
hnvo hitherto obstructed the success of this
moU valunblo discovery. It is thus pre
pared to enter upon the great field of its
eminent and special usefulness. Its cells ,
hoarding the current poured Into them from
the dynamo , muy bo used for stationary pur-
noses for furnishing light nud power , or maybe
bo transported from place to place , used llt
tlo or much , ns may be desired , nnd stands
ready nt any need to render Its effective
service. Us practical uses nre almost num
berless. With the possession of certain
patents , which have been applied for , Mr.
Kinney states that the system will bo put
into practical use In the operation of electric

Concert entertainments , nr.d especially by
traveling organizations , are not popular in
Omaha. Jules Levy , the recognized great
est cornetist in the country , played to : i mis
erably small audience at the Grand opera
house lust night. .But It made no difference
to him ; he manipulated that gold-lined in
strument of his just as brilliantly us though
every ono of the 2,000 seats had been occu
pied by the most enthusiastic lovers of flno
music In America. Mr. Levy carries the
usual form of concert singers , but ho is the
attraction and virtually the whole show. Ho
is fortunate , however , iu having nn excellent
pianist In Mr. W. Lowitz , nnd n very clover
bass singer in Kig. Maina. Madam Stella
Levy , the soprano , nnd Sig. Timbcrlako , the
tenor , have gooii , though not powerful
uoices. Miss Mao Noill had such a very bad
cold that she was unaDlo to appear. But Mr.
Levy was in his element , nnd the audience.
