OMAHA , May 8. To the Editor of Tun
UKR : 1 notice liy your paper thnt the secrO-
Inryofwnr nnd Major General Schofteld ,
with ether | irmy officers , are to bo In Omalm
On a tour of Inspection. I understand Hint
they also Intend to visit Fort Onuha and tha
llo below Hoilovuc , on which Henry T.
Chirlto U trying to Imvo the new fort located.
I take It thnt this U to bo the turning point
bn the question whether the present fort
ahull ho maintained or nlmndonod for n now t thlnki/lt li about lime for our ollU
rciiB to nwnkon to the situation. Whnt will
bo thu effect of abandoning the preicnt fort
nnd moving down ton inlloi below town )
Docs any sane man suppose that the benefits'
which Omtiha 1mA for ycnrn derived from
social Intercourse nnd trafllc with army ofl- !
COM nnd troops will not bo
mutorlnlly affected by the proposed
change ! At present a drlvo from
Port Oin ah u to the pontoftloo is miulo In u
tow mlinitcs , practically nt no expense. Our
Churches , our concert hnlls and social en
tertainments are always liberally patronized
by army people. Our retail stores nro visited
by tliolr ladles nearly every day , and the
common soldier walks Into town and spends
his money when ho 1ms a day off. Will It bo
eo when they Imvo to travel twenty-four
miles brvek and forth between the opera
House and new fort. How wilt they make
this trlpl Henry T. Olarko tolls you that
there will bo suburban trains to tmtc thorn
In ami out of town every few minutes , night
and day. Hurnbugl Who's going to pay
tliolr faro back nnd forth even : If
the round-trip costs but n qunrtorl VVIJVn
subordinate officer , with nn Income of gl'JTu '
manth , couio to n concert with his family
nnd pay out nn extra dollr.r every tlmo I Ho
can't , afford It , arid ho will not do It moro
than once a month. Oh , but they can pet
passes 1 Will it pay any railroad to run
trains from Omaha to the now fort , oven
hourly , when nearly all the passengers nro
dead-bonds ] "Oh , " replies Mr. Clarke , "wo
nro going to build up n largo now town
down there , and the people who will go to
and como from Onmlm will make the
suburban trains Day. " Precisely , Mr.
Clarke I Thut Is why Omaha will
bo seriously crippled by your scheme.
You have ocen trying for moro
than twenty years to bulia up a
rival to , vn down there , and you have made
us any amount of trouble with your brldgo
schemes. I remember very well how Omaha
was paralyzed ut ono time by Mr. Clarke's
efforts to locate a bridge below hero.
Suppose tlmt ho succeeds now In Ratlins
that fort located on his land below Hellovuo ,
nnd ho plants several hundred houses on his
suburban town , and then a bridge Is thrown
across the river ten miles below Omaha ,
'what will bo the effect ! A man
does not have to look through
a mlll-stouo to see that this now Fort
Onmlm scheme cannot fall to do Incalculable
damage to this city. And yet , I am told ,
moro than a hundred of our business men
and bankora have boon Induced under false
pretensions to sign Clarko's petition to locate
the fort on his land. I say under false pretenses -
tenses , and I moan Just what 1 sav. Mr.
Clarke Is capable of Just such work. Ono
of the business men who bad the nerve to
refuse to sign his precious petition tolls
mo that Clnrko represented ! that wo Imd
only ono choice wo must either consent to
the removal of the fort orloso It entirely. Ho
assured this man tlmt General Sclioflola wus
determined not to have another dollar ex
pended In Improvements nt the present fort ,
1 nnd was bent unon having the fort removed
way out west If wo inndo any objection to
locating It near Bollovuo. Clarke Is said to
have shown a letter from Senator Mandor-
son , marked confidential , to sustain his as
sertion. The party said ho didn't take the
trouble to read this letter , and probably no
ono else did. If General Schoticld and the
secretary of war have made up their minds
to move the fort , what is the use of that pe
tition , and why should they come to Omaha
nt all I Clarke also claims that Qcnoral
Brooke , the commander of this depart
ment , Is heartily In favor of
relocating the fort and wants It down near
Bollovuo. 1 don't believe n word of it. It Is
true that General Brooke has recommended
tlio Clarke slto , but ho tins merely compiled
with n duty Imposed upon himhy General
M'.nderson's bill and designated what , In bli
opinion , was the most available slto offered
among competing locations.I have met
many of our army ofllcors , but I have to BOO
ouo yet who would not prefer to bavo the old
fort remain Just where it Is. General Crook ,
ivho probably knows moro about the wants
of the army hero than anybody , declared
within the last three months in the prcsenco
of a man I can name , thnt
"tho scheme to remove the fort Is 'cussed'
nonsense. " As a nltkou and property owner ,
I say It is worse than nonsense. Now York ,
Chicago , St. Louis and Kansas City are all
trying to annex their suburban towns. They
want to ccntralUo population under ono city
government , nnd make the best showing
when the consus-takor comes. Is It good
policy for Omaha to scatter her population
nnd invite the building of suburban towns
that will cut Into her commerce and reduce
her CPIISUS returns to the minimum. Mr.
Editor I fool that I ewe it to myself and ray
fellow citizens to protest against the roloca
tinn of Fort Omaha , and I hope you will prt
aont the real fnots of the case through ypur
editorial columns. A t'lONCBit OK

Ho spent last week In Omaha , representIng -
Ing that ho was a special agent of the New
York Mutual Life Insurance company , and
that ho had run up hero from St. Louis on
a llltto private speculation. Ho stopped ut
the I'uxton , but rendezvoused princi
pally at the Diamond pool room ,
and bccomlnc On caiy and familiar
terms with Its many affable attaches and 1m-
bltucA , ho played his money liberally on both
baio hall nnd hores.
Last Wednesday , n Week ORO , late in the
afternoon , ho strolled Into the iMntnomi , and ,
Walking back to the cashldr's ofllco , said to
Mr. White , the proprietor :
"Here , Charlie , 1 dumped myself at the
other room this afternoon and I want you to
caslt n small check for me , " ut the same time
handing In through thoopanlng In the screen
the following check :
No. 2127.
Sr. Louis , Mo. , April 4 , 188'J. '
Laclcdo 13ank.
Pay to the Hearer . N. Ueauvols
. or order. . . . .
The sum of . Two Hundred Dollars
$200.00. Mcrim Hnos. & Co.
The check was all properly certified with
the bank's stamp and cashier's name , A. A.
TcAtcs. nnd Mr. White , assured that It wus
as good ns BO mucti money Itself , counted out
the "long green" and handed It over to Mr.
Hoauvais , who smiled , thanked him , nnd
with the remark , "I ought to go broke for
going over to the other house , " walked out.
The next afternoon the cheek was sent
over to the Omaha National bunk for col
lection , and nothing moro was tlioucht of it.
Saturday afternoon Mr. Ueauvols again
appeared at the Diamond , and. Informing
Mr. White that ho would require another
small check cashed , ho produced one. the
counterpart of the Ilrst , only it was for $300 ,
and handed It to the accommodating pronri-
ctor. White cashed it without suspicion.
Mr. Hoauvois telling him while ho couutcd
out the money , that ho had insured the older
Mr. Meyer's lifo In St. Louis for $25,000.
Ho nonchalantly rolled up the bills handed
out by Whlto and with n good-afternoon de
parted. That night , ho returned to the pool
room and cashed in SSO worth of pool tickets
which ho had won that day and that was the
last scon of htm at that resort.
Wednesday morning , the Omaha Natloaal
bank received notlllcatiou form the Lnclodo
ban Ic , St. Louis , that the checks wore clover
forgeries , nnd that steps should bo taken for
the immediate arrest of the smooth gentle
man who had circulated them.
But Mr. Bcauvois know hli business , and ,
when searched for , of course , was found
missing. Subsequent Investigation revealed
that ho was Joined here Saturday evening by
Mamie Varroll , the handsome contralto of
the ICato Castloton company , who had come
on that day from Denver , and together they
had departed Sunday evening , presumably
for Now York.
Mr. White hasn't much to say about the
affair , but the porter of the Diamond In
formed the reporter that ho went up-stairs
yesterday , after hearing front the bunk , nnd
kicked himself nil over the room.
Ho will communicate with the New York
authorities nnd endeavor to locate the
shrewd scoundrel , but entertains little hope
of recovering his cherished slmoleons.
Dyspepsia ami Torpid Liver.
Nathaniel Hyatt , Insurance Department ,
Albany , N. Y. , writes :
I have been n great sufferer from dyspep
sia , water brash , acid stomach and constipa
tion for the last fifteen months. Some time
ago I rend in ono of Brandroth's Calendars
the case of a gentleman In Albany who was
cured of a similar affliction by using ALL-
COOK'S PoiioL'3 PIASTERS. Knowing the gen
tleman referred to , I purchased three ono
I wore on the pit of the stomach and two on
my right side. I were them a week , then
took a bath nnd removed the plasters. I
washed the places with cologne , rubbed them
dry and then applied fresh AI.LUOOK'S Pon-
ous PLASTKKS. I found my appotlto aud di
gestion much Improved In two weeks ; in
three weeks my bowels became regular , and ,
after using the plasters for four weeks , I
tound myself entirely cured.

The anouncomouUhalJuilges Wnkoloy and
and Croft would hand down several decisions
attracted a large number of attorney * Into
court ,
Ono of the most elaborate , Interesting and
important of the Judicial utterances this
term , was road by Judge WakolojMn the Case-
of Carolina M. Hunt against Valentino Llpp ,
lu which the title to lot 7 , block 77 , South
Omaha , Is involved. The principal point
raised it as to Whether verbal contracU for
real estate nro binding. Llpp purchased tha
properly from a man , hawed 1'ovorkvlio
had a syndicate land contract , but failed to
deliver it to Llpp. Subsequently , ho sold the
same lot again to Carolina M. Hunt , nnd
gave her the document. Attcr obtaining this
deed Mrs. Hunt sold a portion of the land to
Other parties. Llpu , of course , protected ,
and refused to glvo up possession. Hunt
brought suit before a justice for forcible de
tainer and won his suit , The case was ap
pealed to the district and sulifonifl Courts ,
and the decision was sustalnud , Hunt then
Instituted the suit hero referred to to quiet
thb title. This time , however , the decision
was against him because ( f the fact that the
questions raised established now precedents.
The opinion of the Jurist was very lengthy
and elaborate. During Its reading Judge
Wakoloy made a number of citations from

a number of decisions. They were based

The question of compensation as mortga
gee and agent came up In a case entitled
Kborlca vs. Bradford , and was decided by
Judge Wakeley for the defendant. Some
years ago the plaintiff and his brother , who
owned considerable real estate in this vicin
ity it seems , after having placed n mortgage
on the property in question , abandoned it.
Ono of them absconded , and the ether went

attention to the property. Bradford teen
care of it , as though ho haa been the sole
owner. Ho looked after the taxes , collected
rents , and , as thu city grow , made such Im
provements as greatly enhanced its value.
After also paying off all debts for which the
plaintiffs were responsible , the latter come
and demand possession and refuse to com
pensate him for his services. The court

agreement , to obtain his figures aud use
them as a basis for other contractors , upon
which to rest their ligures BO as tj secure

trict court , yesterday , for an injunction re
straining Samuel G. and Mary Stevenson

Estabrook block , at 414 nnd 410 North Six
teenth street. The plaintiff to the suit claims
that on May 1 , 1884. ho leased the block to
Samuel G. Stevenson for u period of ten
years , with the proviso , however , that ho , at

end of flvo years , upon giving.notlco In writ
ing of his intention to do so aud paying to

The arbitrators wore appointed nnd in
spected the improvements. Ono of them ap
praised the value of improvements at $400.
The ether , who was selected by Stevenson ,

John Coolidge , who works for Hugh
McCarthy , at South Omaha , has boon miss
ing since Sunday , and fears are entertained ,
that ho has been foully dealt with. Ho had
sold n horse to James O'Connor , and taken a

O'Connor took the horse to Sarpy county ,
and on Sunday Coolidge started out to col

that ho intended to return.
Agony Is Courted
By persons who , attacked by a mild form of
rheumatism , neglect to seek prompt relief.
Subsequent torture is prevented by an Im
mediate resort to Hosteller's Stomach Bit
ters. Slight exposure , an occasional draught ,
will beget this painful malady , whore there is
a prodisposion to it in the blood. It Is not
difficult to arrest the trouble at the outset ,
but well nigh Impossible ) to eradicate it when
matured. No evidence in relation to this
superb blood depuroat Is moro positive than
tliat which establishes its oulcucy as a pre
ventive and remedy for rheumatism. Not
only Is it thorough , but safe , which the vege
table and mineral poisons , often taken as
curatives of the disease , are not. Besides
expelling the rheumatic virus from tun sys
tem , It overcomes fever and ague , billlous
ness , constipation and dyspepsia.

Commissioner Tanner runs across somd
heartrending cases now nnd then in looking
over pension applications. It Is not gener
ally known , but It Is true , that ho examines
inoro Cases personally , Originally than any
examiner In his ofllco.
Last Sunday ho was In his room nt thd
Kbbltt. going through his personal mall )
when he ran across n letter from a woman ,
It was massive , and as ho thumbed down
the corrifirs nnd saw thr-ro Were eleven
tmecsvrlttcn In n closO'llno ' hand , his heart
sank within him nnd ho Involuntarily exclaimed -
claimed , "Oh , Lord , I can never read ihlsi"
Then ho looked for the signature , and as ho
did so ho toad this closing paragraph :
"If the government Intends to give mo
anything In return for my husband , a father
of several little children , please , Mr. Tanner ,
have it given now , nnd not lay it upon my
coflln. "
The commissioner paused , scratched Ins
head , nnd wrote on the lirstpago : "Head. "
The words went to his heart. They touched
the fountain of his sympathies. It speaking
of It afterwards ho said :
"After I got through with my mall I took
up this letter and read it from beginning to
cud. I said to myself that this woman be
lieves what she writes. No ono could put
such words together without an honest pur
pose. While reading the letter ono of my
examiners came Into my room , and I gave It
to him with directions tlmt ho. look It up In
the morning nnd report. By 10 o'clock I had
a syllabus of the case on my desk and at 11
o'clock n pension was granted to her. She
ought to huvo been given the pension two
years before , mid doubtless would linvo re
ceived It had the case been examined. There
nre thousands of these cases on file in the
odlce now. The crime lies in the delay. It
is robbery not to take up and dispose Dt
them. "
Kvcry conceivable scheme has been
worked to have the president nnd the cabi
net photographed in a groupe. Personal
friends of the chief executive nnd 'members
of the cabinet have solicited it as a personal
favor to photographers , but all overtures
have bccu refused. General Harrison and
Mr. Wanamakor are especially averse to
having tnoir photographs displayed in public
Real estate men who have talked to
United Slates Treasurer Huston say they
intend to find lu him a shrewd and success
ful investor. Mr. Huston has confined him
self almost exclusively to banking and man
ufacturing at home , but ho owns largo farms
and considerable business and residence
property , and has excellent Judgment wherr
it comes to ground work. Ho intends to buy
n residence , and to try to gat ahead In real
csta'o investments. There is considerable
money being made in suburban property iu
The treasurer In no sense inclines toward
stock speculation. He never roads the finan
cial reports , and Is not Interested in the
bond market.
President Harrison's democratic
ways con
tinue to astonish especially the people of the
cast whenever they como to Washington.
Western men are used to seeing their most
prominent characters Intermingling with the
common herd on all occasions , but the Yan
kee Is amazed to sec the president put on n
slouch ' hat , and smoking a cigar , stroll down
th'o most frequented thorough faro of the cap
ital , elbowing against lieoplo of all climes
nnd conditions.
The most popular social strouo tha presi
dent has made was delivered on Kastor Mon
day , when ho called out the Marino baud to
nmuso the children who rolled eggs in the
grounds to the south of the White House ,
nnd when ho went down himself with baby
Mclvco to see llio amusement of the little
ones. It is strnngo that ether presidents
have never thought of such things.
President Harrison reminds old citizens
hero very much of President Grant ,
socially and personally speaking. Tha
two men wcro always simple In
their habits , ana unassuming In their per
sonal character. It will bo easy for Presi
dent Harrison to get the same hold on the
people who come in contact with him that
President Grant had. The last time Presi
dent Giant was at the capital , a few mouths
before ho wus taken to his bed with his fatal
sickness , ho rode up to the cnpltol on a three
cent bob-tall car , and alone wandered
around the corridors of the House of Repre
sentatives , never making himself known ,
As he wont to the senate ho was recognized
by an old friend in that body , and
they walked up to the south
cntranco to the senate chamber ,
General Grant told the senator that ho
wanted to see some ono in the senate , and
modestly stepping back to the great old
clock which stands in a niche immediately
in front of tlio senate chamber , ho reclined
against the wall for some time , waiting the
outcoming of his fricud. His slouch hat
was drawn down over Ins eyes , and ho
silently puffed a cigar. Ho was recognized
by but n few of his old acquaintances , none
of whom spoke to him , not having seen him
for so long that they doubted his ability to
recognize them.

Ex-Senator Palmer , who soon sails as our
minister to Spain , oxpcets to return to the
United States and remain a year or fifteen
months. Ho will bo welcomed back by
every ono who knows him personally. Whlio
ho was passing down newspaper row bidding
his friends good-bye , ho stopped at the
bureau of TUB BEE , and when ho said
"Adieu , senior , " ho added , seriously :
Lot nio soo. A year from next September
will be about eighteen months. Make it in
round figures fifteen months , and you may
expect to sea mo back In the United States.
I would pathor grub sago brush on my farm
near Detroit , and eat corn ponu in my log
cabin , than live in the castles In Sualn and
make salums to her king. I pro.iumo Spain
will offer mo some amusement for u few
months ; but after that my duties , although
not naturally onerous , will bo irksome , and
I will want to got back , If * for no ether rea
son , to cure a taint of homesickness. "
Moro than a d07cn active young republi

ernor Hovoy announced when ha was in the

twice In succession if ha desired to , and
hence there will bo an opening In the govern
orship for Attorney-General Mlchener in the

that the young men , iu Ohio known in vul

A concerted effort will probably bi >

H Was not Jiosslblo that h& Mild nhticl

Ins gallery would bccdmo lo n largo extent

sldcred advisable that students should makd
copies ot originals equal In sire to the \i\c- \ \
lures copied , for which reason the ru6 ! has
always prevailed thftt lhrc6-oliHhs ! Of the
original Is the maximum size. This ruling
interferes but little with the work of nrUsts (
but within the past several weeks the maim *
tors of thO Cori-orall gallery have reduced
the ftlzobf pictures xvhfch may bo made to
ono-hnlf thatoforlRlnals , which prhctlcally
cuts off one-third Of the worhs there fronl

The only excuse given by thb managers for

effort will bo spared to accomplish It.
Tha chief of the bureau of navigation of
the navy department has given nn order to
have electric lights put on the new war
ships , Mlantonomoh , Monadnock , Petrol
and Vesuvius , for which congrcs ? has ap
propriated $55UOO.
This Improvement In fitting up of our
ships , " said ono of the most prominent of
llcors of the department , "can hardly bo ap
preciated by those unfamiliar xvlth the
old man-of-war. I can recall the
grease lamps which were the only
means of lighting used in our
navy at ono time. I have gone on thu berth-
dock where they were burning and so fetid
was the atmosphere I could hardly stand the
stench. When the sailors would turn In
these lamps would bo blown out , and then
they would smoke for an hour or moro , nnd
when battened down at sea the condition of
the berth-dock was horrible , and its effect
Was easily shown on the men , They were
piped up at 0 o'clock , clvon ten minutes to do
up their beddlug and begin scrubbing down
docks , nnd the consequence was that they
nil had swelled heads and felt ugly , nnd before
fore the morning was over wo invariably had
half n dozen lights , and some of them pretty
tough ones. too.
"Now all this Is changed. Wo don't have
ono fight in the navy whore wo had n hun
dred twenty ycaos ago , and it is simply the
result of treating sailors like human beings ,
giving them n decent place to sleep in and
attending to their comforts.
"Tho berth dock Is now well ventilated ,
and the electric lights do not contribute to
fouling the air. Jack Is called up at 0 o'clock
as of old , but Instead of having ton minutes
to got to work in , half an hour Is allowed ,
and in tlmt time ho is served with coffee and
biscuit , has sufficient tune to uut his bedding
up and gees on deck feeling rational and like
a manalways good-naturedan j does his work
with a will. Oh , the modern improvements
are n great thing for the navy. "
