I'otor Johnson , who has lived nt 411 North
ttcnth street for over n year past , packed his
earthly possessions yesterday nfternoon and
prepared to remove to Marcngo , Ta. , his old
home. Ho Intended to start iu the evening ,
Overland , In the conventional nr.\lrle schooner ,
but when the hourarrlved his wife suggested
tbftt It would bo well for him to defer the
utart and spend the night In the south part
ot the city with old friends. All objections
TTsro reasoned nway and ho consented , nnd
doubtless passed n pleasant night. Ills wlfo
nnd child ren were to stay In the wagon to
guard the property. How long they tarried
Iniay never bo known , for on Johnson's re
turn this morning ho found them gone , with
the exception o'f n crippled , helpless child ,
Who was left ns the only legacy of an erst
while happy homo. Mrs. Johnson had Hod ,
taking all their worldly effects nnd two chll-
Urcn. Tlio crippled child was left with scanty
cover , and had It not been for the neighbors ,
tvho discovered the situation , would doubtless -
loss have suffered from the chilling
nlr of the night. Hut , in a word ,
Mrs. Johnson schemed to got pos
cession of the property of her
husband , that nlio might bo nblo
to skip with n younger and handsomer
man , and was successlul. Mr. Johnson is
Blxt.y years of age , but ho takes the desertion
In a philosophical way , and ns yet has made
no effort to discover the destination of his
tvife und her partner In crime. Ho is qulto
poor , but says ho Is able to care for himself
nnd the crippled child , and will proceed lo do
so. Ills team was worth ? 200 and his house-
Iibld effects probably as much moro. 'iho '
old limn says , "Fortunately , I have the
pocket-book , and it contains several odd dollars
lars for ix rainy day. "

Omaha Competing With Chicago In
the Black H1119 Trade.
Officials nml McrclinnM Claim They
Arc Pnvorablo to This City
Xho Proposed Union De
pot Hallway Notes.
Not Discriminated Against.
A morning paper , speaking editorially of
Lho recent trip made by the bonrcl of trndo
to tlio Block Illlla , said that the excursion
would bo ol no nvnil , and declared , In short ,
that the Fremont , Klkhorn & 'Missouri Ynt <
Icy was discriminating npnlnst Omahn , and
in favor of Chicago and Sioux City.
Mr. Dudley Smith , of the D. M. Steolc
company , said that this is not true ; that
upon the other hand , the Fremont is the only
road running out of Omalm which does not
ninko such discrimination. "With thcmt"
said hove stand upon tin equality with
Chicago , Sioux City , Fremont and all other
Jobbing cities. The rate from Omaha to
Wliltcwood , first class , " ho continued , "Is
f 1.0'J , and ttio rata from Omaha to Chicago
is 75 cents , the rate from Chicago to Whitewood -
wood Is the sum of these two rates , or (3-il ,
placing us upon un equality with Cbiuago.
rs'o , thcro is nothing in that , moro than an *
other fling from the paper in oucstion at the
board of trade. "
"What's the matter with that paper , any-
wayl" asked Mr. Clmpman of the same
house. There's nothing in this thing. Tuko
this statement for Instance :
The Omaha board of trade may oxcurse
till the cows come homo mid nothing with a
dollar mark will como of It. They may malco
personal friends and enjoy banquets , and
drink champagne , and wax eloquent , but
they cannot induce the north to patronize
Omaha until Omaha can put its goods nt the
doors of the north at the price for which they
ciin be secured from other cities. "
Now. that is ridiculous , ns it can bo proven
that Omaha sells to the merchants of the
Hlack Hills nine-tenths of all the goods pur
chased by them. Then the idea of comparing
Sioux City and Fremont us equal markets
with Omaha 1 Fremont lias ono wholesale
grocery house. The Sioux City and Fremont
rates to Whitewood nro the same as the rate
from Omaha to Whltcwood. "
Speaking on the same subject an attache of
the general freight department of the Fre
mont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley said :
"That Is all bosh , Omaha , like Sioux City ,
has the Missouri river point rate from Chi
cago. Fremont has a higher rate than cither.
On tlrst and second-class freight Omaha and
Sioux City have a differential over Fremont
of 5 cents per 100 ; third and fourth-class , 4
cents , and all other classes 8 cents. Now ,
you can seq this is favorable to Omaha when
its distance in difference from Chicago is only
thirty-seven miles.
"Now , on freight from Omaha to points
west of Norfolk on the Elkhorn road , the
rate is the same as from Sioux City al
though the haul from Omaha is much longer
than that from Sioux City. At Norfolk the
rates equalize and so continue westward.
Norfolk is seveuty-ftvo miles from Sioux
City while it is 119 from Omaha , thereby
giving Omaha the benefit of an equal rate
with Sioux City , although the haul Is forty-
four miles longer. Is that inimical to
Omaha ?
"Then again , on freight shipped to points
in the territory in question from Chicago the
rate is based on the sum of the two locals.
For instance , a Chicago house ships freight
to a house in Lincoln or any point west of the
Missouri river. The rate on that freight
would bo composed 01 the local rate between
the Missouri river and Chicago and the local
rate between the Missouri river and the
point of destination. This you see puts
Omaha on an equal footing with Chicago as
regards the rail rates. It would bo neither
reasonable nor prudent for western roads to
discriminate against its homo institutions in
the interests of foreien ones , and with the
present rate schedule all Omaha wholesalers
need do to secure the patronage of the dis
puted territory is to become acquainted and
then reach out for its business. And lot mo
say , to my own positive knowledge , this has
been done to a largo extent within the past
year. "
Omaha's Union Depot.
KANSAS CITT , Mo. , May 3. ( Special
Telegram to THE DEE. ! Plans ana specifica
tions for the new union depot to bo erected
in Omaha were received by Van Brunt &
Howe , architects of this city , this morning.
They are , however , subject to modification
and alteration. In an interview with your
correspondent this morning Mr. Howe said
that the Union Pacific and B. & M. railroads
wore those principally interested at present
but in his opinion the now enterprise would
be of such magnitude that all other roads
centering in Omaha would take advantage of
the facilities it would afford. The proposed
union depot will bo located near the present
site of the old depot at Tenth and Mason
The plan most In favor are for
a three-story building , 450x60 feet ,
fronting on Mason street , to cost from
5350,000 to 1500,000. The railway tracks will
be on the north side of the building and the
Tenth street viaduct will bo readied by a
stairway at the northwest corner of the
depot. It will also bo connected with the
viaduct bv a bridge twenty-two feet wide. A
largo cloclc tower is to bo located at the
north end of the depot. While the depot
proper is to cover 4fiOx < iO foot of ground , rail
way tracks , driveways , etc. , will occuny a
space COO or 700 feet long by 300 feet wide.
Mr. Howe said that the plans received by
him were hut ono sot of half a dozen laid be
fore the Union Pacific officials. Ho expects
a letter with full instructions In a few days.
Grant ! Island and tlio Union Pacific.
The committee- from Grand Island , referred
forred to in theeo columns Thursday , waited
on Vice President Holcomb , of the Union
Pacific , in behalf of the shop employes and
train facilities at that place. The committee
advanced some strong arguments as to why
the force In tlio shops should bc'rcstored to
its original strength , the principal being that
the great number of the employes were men
of families , and had invested their earnings
in homos and property at that place.
As to train arrangements they asked that
the direct connection and immediate service
between that point and Omaha bo main
Vice President Ho'comb ' , after hearing
the complaint , assured the committee -
tee that tlio Union Paciito would
net with all fairness In the matter to
ward Grand Island and nil other points , and
that no change would bo made in any respect
spect that was unwarranted. The Union
Pacific Hliops at Grand Island is the port
whcro the greater part of painting and varn
ishing of passenger rolling Block is done , but
owing to the mildness of the winter this class
of work lias largely decreased.

Those or the County Kxpcricnclng a
. Delay In Pay Day.
The commissioners have stirred up n deep
feeling of indignation among people who
draw salaries from the county treasury. In
the heat of passion and thirst for revenge ,
which 1ms at various times characterized
certain members of the board , they saw fit
to pass n resolution that all bills bo illcd and
held ten days before being paid. As a consequence -
sequence , employes cannot draw their
stipends before the week after next and
some of them are furiously put out
about it. Their monthly bills have come
due , the grocery men nro after them , they
hare no money to pay with and can't got
credit. Consequently the situation is a seri
ous ono.
The board meets to-day , when nil bills
will bo read , but , under the now rule , they
can not bo collected under ten days.
O'KeolTo's llrst resolution , with reference
to this matter , excluded salaries , but Ander
son would not vote lor it unless
everything was included , therefore ,
in their eager efforts to put each other into
a tight hole , the board 1ms invited left-hand
ed compliments and incurred universal en
mity. _

A Uoinarknblo Card Trick That Was
Itrccntly Performed In Cincinnati ,
The guests of the Grand hotel were
recently discussing u card trick that
was performed therd that takes the
palm for originality and that iu its per
formance is almost beyond belief , says
the Cincinnati Commercial-Guzetto.
Shortly hoforo dinner last evening tv
party of gentlemen , among whom were
Mr. Vonzoy. William McCammon ,
Oharles II. Kellogg. Jr. , and Govern
ment Detective Kopmoier , got in a dis
cussion about aplritualibin. Mr. Voazey
took llio position that the mysterious
workings of mediums were hut tricks.
Mr. Kellogg thought 'ditterontly , and
Mr. Voazoy offered tovagor that ho
could perform a. card trick that would
mystify thpso present and one which
they could in no manner explain , Mr.
Kollocg accepted the wagar and Mr.
Veazuy told him to procure a deck of
Mr. Kollogtr. who is ono of the host
"Boston" players in the city mid well
versed in all card games , wont out and
purchased a new deck of cards. Ko-
turning to the room Mr. Vcazoy turned
his back and told him to shuflle th *
cards thoroughly. This was done by
Mr. Kellogg and then Mr. Vcazoy told
him to spread the deck out on the table ,
bclcct a card , and show it to those pres
ent. Kellogg drew a card and after
looking at it handed it to Mr. Kop
moier. It was the four of clubs. With
his back still turned Mr. Vcazoy told
Kellogg to replace the card in the deck
and then put them in his pocket.
The cards being out of sight Voazoy
now turned and said : Telegraph to any
frioml you have in any part of the
United States ( New York , San Fran
cisco , St. Louis , Chicago , or any
other place ) and ask him what
card you have drawn from the deck. "
The company present looked amazed at
this proposition and Kellogg at first toolc
it as a joke. Ho was assured by Veazoy
that ho meant just what ho said. In
order that thcro could bo no possible
collusion , Vcazey agreed to remain with
some of the guests until Kellogc should
go out and send the dispatch , und until
an answer was returned. Kellogg , in
stead of telegraphing from the hotel ,
walked to the Western Union telegraph
ofllce. On the way ho tried to think of
some friend who lived at a distance , and
the name of the lion. Emmet Tompkins
suggested itself. Knowing that a dis
patch would reach Mr. Tompkins if di
rected in euro of the Neil house , Colum
bus , Mr. Kellogg wont to the telegraph
ofllce and indited the following message :
"Tun HON. EMMET TOMTKIXS , Columbus ,
O. : I have drawn u card from a deck. Tele
graph mo immediately what it was.
"CiiAitLEs H. KKLI.OOO , Jn. "
After sending the dispatch Mr. Kellogg
logg returned to the hotel and rejoined
the party , but at no time divulging the
nanio of tlio person to whom ho had
sent the message. The affair got
noised about and a number of the guests
joined the party and breathlessly
awaited the answer.
Just at 10 o'clock a rap at the parlor
door startled the guests , and a waiter
entered , accompanied by a telegraph
mc&songcr. It was a dispatch for Mr.
Kollogg. and that gentleman's hand
trembled perceptibly as ho signed the
.receipt. The guests gathered around
him and ho tore open the onvelono.
Drawing out the dispatch ho glanced
nt it and then was seen to turn palo.
During all this time Mr. Vcazoy fiat idly
by , paying no attention whatever to
what was going on. Mr. McCammon
took the dispatch from Kcllogg's hands
and read as follows :
"C'OMJJim'S , O. , April 12 , 1889.
Charles H. Kellogg , Jr. , Grand Hotel.
You drew the four of clubs.
For several seconds no ono spoke n
word and then ejaculations of ' 'marvol-
OUB , " "marvelous , " were heard from
those present. Mr. Kellogg , who is a
devout spiritualist , was completely stag
gered und ho could say nothing. There
was certainly no collusion with Mr.
Tompkins , for ho is not known to Mr.
Veazoy , and if ho was the latter had no
opportunity to Bond him a dispatch , for
ho remained with a number of gentlemen -
mon until the answer returned.
If any ono can explain it ho is wcl-
como to it.
