In this particular. They have mndo the

cents. There Is a largo decrease In the rate
up to seventy miles , but from that point to
BOO miles the rates nro nearly the same as
now. Hut from UOO upwards there Is another -

their tlrstschoJulo much too high for the
Bliort haul , so much so that the railroads
voluntarily reduced the rate much below the
commission's rate for the haul ,

The bonrd adjourned without adopting the
report of the committee.
The greeting extended to Edwin Booth
and Lawrence Hurrott , on their return to
Omaha , at Boyd's opera house , last night ,
vas In all respects crcdltaplo and gratifying ,
flvory scat , up stairs and down , was occu-
iled with as line appearing and ap-
> rcciatlvo an audience as can
found any where. Luaies in
'ashlonablo attlro , prominent merchants ,
janitors and lawyers , ns well as belles and
jcaux of swell society , occupied sittings in
the gallery that belongs to tlio gods , and
wcro thankful for the opportunity. By
noon , Thursday , it was impossible to secure
chairs , cither In the parquet , dress circle or
jiileony , BO great was tha rush. Council
Bluffs , Lincoln , Fremont , Plattsmouth , nnd
ether towns within n radius of
fifty miles , were well rcprosentcd.
That they thoroughly enjoyed the perform
ance Is already conceded , but those who
were not fortunate enough to bo present can
not comprehend the treat given to these
who wcro. It was an entertainment for in
tellectual people , and only such as nro well
versed In the higher class of acting could bo
expected to feel satisfied. "Tho Merchant
of Venice" was the play , Mr. Booth appear
ing ns Shylock , a part In which
ho has doubtless won greater fomo
than any other actor , and Mr.
Barrett , in the role of Bassanio , n character
that has never boon made so effective as it Is
in 'his hands. All that might bo written of
these two stars is fully mdrltcd. but what is
the use of coveringground ; that has beongono
over so often. The excellence of their work
is nn every day story. The American stage
lias no other such actor as Edwin Booth , no
man who approaches within hulling instance
of him. His characterization of the
old . Venetian .Tow is un
questionably the most wonderful
piece of work the theater-goers of this gen
; nitlon over will see. Mr. Booth's moro in-
; inuito friends doubtless observed last night
: hat ho was less earnest and flrery than
usual in some of the stronger scenes , because
of his recent illness , but every point , pas
sion , feeling and thought possible to con-
; oive , as belonging to the character , was
jrought out as only the trained anil mas-
.erly mind can bring them out.
L'"or the time Booth had passed entirely out ,
of existence , was completely forgotten , and
In his stead lived the creation of Shakes
eare's fertile brain. Mr. Barrett's part in
; ho performance was naturally overshadowed
jy that of his associate , but for all that ho
can not bo accused of having slighted
it in the least. The supporting
company is all that could bo de
sired. Each member seems to have
boon especially selected to fit a certain line
and does what ho has to do well. Miss-
Minnie Gale continues to hold the position
of leading lady , and she is a charming ac
tress. Her presentation of the fair Portia
greatly pleased everybody , nnd next to the
stars , the honors of the evening wcro be
stowed on her. Fredrick Vroom , John A.
Luno , Lawrence Hnnly , Owen Fawcett , Miss
Eleanor Tyndalo and Agngs Acres , deserve
special mention. The piece was well staged
und In every particular the performance ran
smoothly. A pleasing feature of it was the
good singing introduced by a quartette of
excellent male voices. At the matinee this
afternoon , "Othello" will bo the bill with
Mr. Barrett In the title role and Booth as
. "Tho Fools Ite-
Ingo. To-night they give -
venge" and "Yorick's Lovo. "

Here is the letter :
' 'My Dear Editor : For several years

by Messrs. II. I . Warner & Co. , of

numerous testimonials from parties

says John Uohorty , ltl ! ! north Main

It strikes mo that there is a good deal
of sense in the claim which those
parties make that the doctorn are treat

What Seems ( o Ito n. Clear Case Made
Out The Intcr-Slnto Commis
sion Arraigned For
Manipulating Hates.
UniOAOO , April 20. [ Special Tolcgwm to
TUB BBC. ] A quiet movement was sot on
foot to-day to punish th(3 ( St. Paul and North *
western for the manipulation of rates ,
whcroby the Ellsworth Coal company was
enabled to got a roduotlon of ! 15 cents a tenon
on Us shipments of coal and colco. The ooa
company Is equally liable , but the movement
so far extends only against the rpads. Tha
urlmo mover Is not a railroad man. Said ho
to your correspondent : ' 'The Intor-stato
commerce commission and the Inter-state
commerce railway associations nro roaring
farces In-so-far as meaning what they say Is
concerned. Hoth associations have repeat
edly said that they would punish any Infrac
tion of the law , and the latter association
made a great Jjlaro of trumpets over
the statement that it would bring suit
against any illegal act performed by
a railroad whether In or out of the' associa
tion. Now that was pure , unadulterated
buncombe , and all the railroads know It.
The Intor-stato commerce railway associa
tion und commission have both declared
they would net whenever they learned of
evidence against any road , whether a com
plaint was made or not. Now wo don't
bollovo , nor does a railroad man in Chicago
that either association will take notion un
less n complaint is pressed on their notice.
Wo shippers know that discrimination is al
most as common now ns before the interstate -
state commoruo act caiuo into balng. Some
of us nro norhups not as sharp as others and
wo have been getting the worst of it. Now
wo have the statement over the signature of
Chairman Blanchnrd of the Central Trnfilc
association and Chairman Paithorn and
MIdgloy of the Western Freight association.
that two roads and a shipper arc guilty nnd
wo propose to see whether there Is a law in
Israel to punish them. Wo will wait u reasonable
sonablo length of time for the associations
to take actions as they claimed they would ,
without complaint. Whan this time has ex
pired , wo will simply push the statement of
the th reo chairman before both associations.
That is all the proof wo want to secure a
conviction if the association means busi
ness. "

The Alton Announces a Reduction
nnd Excitement Prevails.
The local roads are considerably worked
up over the movement of the Chicago &
Alton , in its threatened reduction of 0 cents
in the rate on lumber between Chicago and
Kansas City. This , they claim , will result In
the Iowa lines putting in tbo same rate , 10
cents , on lumber between Chicago and Oma
ha. Chicago lumber merchants handle white
pine exclusively , and the.soutjjerh and south
western territory is tho.producing center for
yellow pine. The roa'ds west of
the Missouri river maintain that the
Chicago roads , and the Chicago lumber mer
chants arc making this move iu order that
they can shut out the dealers in yellow pine ,
which is the principal grade of matcrlul used
in Omaha and points in the contiguous terri
tory. An official of the Missouri Pacific
said : "Let the Alton keep on and it will find
us camping with it. It is not the Alton's
desire to put in low rates as much as it is
that ot tha Chicago merchants. Under the
the present rates wo are able to bring the
pine iiito competition , and of course the re
duction from 10 to 10 cents in the Chicago
freight rates would make a material differ
ence. Hut the Alton has not as yet obtained
the approval of the board of arbitration , and
I think that when this body comes to pass
upon the matter it will not sustain the re
duction " *

The Vast Timber Krgloit Through a
Portion ofWhicli Stanley I'liHsod.
The grout forest through which Str.n-
loy recently passed , which ho estimated
to cover iMG.UOU square miles , is only 11
Binull part of the great African forest
which extends almost unbrakunly from
the west coast iu.the Gaboon and Ogowo
regions , with atvridth of sovornl hun
dred miles , to tHe great lakes. This
belt of timber , trending away to the
heart of the continent in a direction a
little south of eusj , is the greatest forest
region in the wqrld , according to the
Now York Sum . .A. part of it strikes
south of the Congo lit the great north-
ei'n bond of tlml'rjvor ' , and the country
embraced withiif'tlie ' big curve is cov
ered with a compact forest , the tower
ing and wide-spreading trees fahuttin ?
out a largo purl of the sunlight.
In those forodtsj completely shut ouc
from the rest of the world , live hun
dreds of thousfnas of people who are
almost unknowijl't | > the trilics living in
the siivnnna regions outside. Scattered
through.tho big.lypods within the Congo
bond sire little communities of Balwa
dwarfs , of'whoso oxlstenco the traveler
has no inkling until ho suddenly conies
upon them. Hero also , along the San-
kura river , arc the tree habitations de
scribed by Dr. Wolf , where the natives
live in hiits built among the branches ,
to escape the river llpoda. It was in
great clearings made in these forests
that Kundand Tappenbcck discovered
some of the most notable village1 * yet
found in Africa , where well built huts
\\tth gable roofs , line both sides of a
neatly l.opt street that stretches away
for eight or nine miles. These villages
are even more interesting than the
street towns in the more sparsely tim
bered regions south of thorn , which wcro
regarded as very wonderful when they
were first discovered by Wissmnnn. It
was his account of these villages that
led Bishop Taylor to chposo this part of
Africa us the goal ho wished to roach.

FIIGMOXT , Nob. , April 20. [ Special to Tun
HER. ] 1 Imvo iu < tt lonruod of nn out of great ,
heroism by a youth olgtitocn years of npo ,
Oscar Urliikmnn , son of Henry , of
Seven Oaks fnrm , near Fremont , Young
Oscar was n nallor on board tha Vaudalla
when that Ill-fated ship met with the Into
disaster In the hurricane In Samoan waters
Wlion the hurrlcano struck tlio ship nil
hands wcro at-tholr | )03ts. The anchors were
cost , but it BOOH bcomno evident that they
would not hold the ship against the furious
Kiile , and she slowly but surely drifted
towards the surf. A tremendous sen struck
her , sweeping over her , washing away many
poor lellows , mid clearing the deck of every
thing which was not securely fastened. In
the Interval of quiet which followed the men
took to the rlpKliiff and clung to the insists
mul spars. Presently the vessel gave a
heavy lurch before the gale , and ninny men
nud boys , including young Urlnltmmi , were
HI.OWX rnoM TiiBin ii\cr.a.
and wcro loft In the foaming surge. Hrlnlt-
man struck out for 11 fo and In another min
ute succeeded In seizing a plank which hud
boon washed from the deck of the steamer ,
and to which he clung with all his strength.
Another terrible wave swept over the ship
carrying with it Captain Schoonuinkcr. Ho
was scon by Drlnl.mnnn , but apparently
qulto stunuod or clso exhausted ho made
no effort to combat the elements and was
carried away by the storm and not ngaln
lirinlctnnn , whilst clinging to his plank and
furiously driven about by the wave3saw one
of his mates struggling in the water und
nearly exhausted , and immediately quitting
his plank seized hold of him by the hair and
swimming with him ngaln got on the plank
to which they both clung whilst the storm
roared. All around
in the surging , seething waters. Many wcro
stunned or killed outright by bchiir dashed
against iloating objects which had boon
washed from the storm-battered ship. How
ever , these two on the plank were driven to
wards the * shore. Tune and nguln they
wore overturned and Inuucrsc'd In
in the sea. One tremendous wave drove
them well up the beach : when the wave hud
receded thny were loft In shallow water and
abandoning their plank , they ran ns fast as
possible landward , but did not succeed in
getting far enough up not to bo caught by
the next incoming wave , which carried them
oft their feet und bore them back with the
outwash of the sea. They being expert
swimmers , kept afloat till the next wave
washed them shoreward , this time landing
them further up than before. As see n as
they felt the bottom they again ran with
their utmost speed , and got fur enough up
to bo
OUT or luxonn
before the wave returned. Half dead , as
they were. Brinkman'H ' llrst thought was to
render assistance to these on board the ill-
fated ships. Ho secured a boat , and purauad-
ing some of the natives to accompany him ,
determined to again venture into the angry
sea , from which he had so perilously oa-
eaped. Three natives and himself manned
the boat , and started with a rope to establish
a line between the shore and thoshipTrcnton.
At the first essay the small boat was upset
and all were thrown into the sea and again
swaying with the elements. Fortunately it
soon righted uiul all succeeded in getting on
board her again , this time lushing them
selves to the scats. A small boat in such a
, sea as was then running is very helpless.
The rudder is uscless-aud the o.iw , tiio only
'thing they had tq depend on. made the odds
of their over getting out of the sea alive
fearfully against them. However , these
bravo fellows
TOOK Tiiniu LIVES : .v mum HANDS
for the sake of saving their fellow men , and
struggled against the infuriated elements , atone
ono time their boat riding through on the
crest of a tremendous wave und again down
in the trough of the sea out of sight of those
on board the ship , who were breathlessly
watching the progress of their rescuers ,
whoso success or failure meant life or death
to them.
Finally the boat reached the Trenton , and
the rope was safely thrown on board and
eagerly caught. The lives of hundreds of
bravo sailors were saved by the heroism of
ono youth households were saved from
mourning wives and children , sisters and
brothers have cause to rejoice , who , had it
not been for the bravery of Oscar Lirlnk-
mun , the Nebraska boy , would have been
stricken with grief and their homes turned
into places of mourning. The country has
reason to bo proud of having such men for
its defenders. Bravo deeds huvo been done
by our soldiers und sailors , but few can rank
higher on the roll of honor than the here of
Attempted Suicide.
William J. Coots attempted suicide last
night by taking a dose of morphine. Why
ho desired to jump Into the depths of tha
unknown is n mystery yet to his friends , as
they claim ho had no apparent reason to bo
distracted. The deadly drug was taken in a
medicine shop. Dr. Lee was immediately
summoned and applied restoratives , which
saved the young man's life. Coots was
taken to a Turkish bath house under fioyil's
opera house , where ho remained during the
night ,
