Men of the noble lineage .sometimes go
Wrong , us well as the common mortals of
earth. This Is * true at least In the case of
Charles Thomas , the young man recently
r found guilty In the district court of having
uttered forged paper to the amount of $07 ,
and who nov/ awaits sentence for his crime.
.It has just been learned that ho 1ms been liv
ing under an assumed name , but why will
probably never bu known. The young man
came to Lincoln nearly two years ago , und
shortly afterward engaged with Hubbnrd
Bros. , of this city , und wont to work at the
butchers' trade. From the first , however ,
it scorns that ho had a penchant
{ or evil doing , for ho had worked
for the firm but u short tltno until ho got into
trouble und had to bu helped out to escape the
penalty of tbo law. This the firm did uuder
promise of a bettor life. But , it seems , ho
soon forgot nin pledge , and Ills employers
wore compelled to sot him adrift , or run the
chance of base betrayal at bis hands. Headers
Of THU Beit are acquainted with the episode
at ( bo Capital National hank , whom he at
tempted to pass a forged chuck for f'J7 , and
his subsequent arrest by Officer Pound at
Sterling. For thin crime ho was tried and
convicted , and must soon suffer thu sentence
of tli court. Thu following translated let
ter. addressed to Hubbnrd Bros. , will ex
plain something of the antecedent * of the
wayward young man :

Mr. Mahoncy'8 Keport on the Records
of the Various Official ? .
According to instructions from the board
of county commissioners , County Attorney
Mahoney submitted u lengthy report to the
board at .yesterday afternoon's mooting in
regard to quarterly reports of county officials.
Tbo attorney stated that all officers of the
county had made reports for the quarter end
ing April 1 , 1889 , except the sheriff. All the
reports , In the opinion of the county's legal
advisor , were in accordance with law except
that of the county clerk and the registdr of
deeds. In these reports , while the amounts
received for fees were regularly set down and
daily accounted for , they hod simply been
charged to tbo number of instruments and
names ot the parties pay lug them omitted
from the records. The county attorney says
this had been the custom of the officials in
keeping the records as far back as ho went.
He Had n consultation with both the county
clerk and the register of deeds , and both as
sured him that in the future the records
would bo kept so as to show by whom foes
were paid , and that thoy-would comply with
the Btatutory provisions in making out their
reports. The jail records had been examined
and found correct.
Relative to the resolution of Mr. Anderson
in regard to charging SI for filing certain in
struments , and giving the county credit for
J5 cents thereof , the attorney said he had
boon unable to find uny cause upon which to
haso nn action , either criminal or civil. The
report of the clerk showed on the dates men
tioned in the finance committee's report that
the clerical woru performed for outsldo par
ties was paid for by the clerk. Affidavits by
Mr. Roetie and Miss Mornn , who did the
work , accompanied the communication. They
wore ordered filed , as was ulso the opinion.
S. J. Pope & Co. presented a bill , accompa
nied by the third estimate in the plumbing
contract for the county hospital , asking for
$3,570.03. It was approved.
Sheriff Coburn submitted a bill for (1,704.75
for fees during the February term of court.
It was roforrod. Several small bills were
The county attorney made propositions for
settlement of the question as to the lots on
which the present poor house is located ,
which were purchased by Judge Haseall.
The first proposition provides for the county
executing u deed for the premises to him ac
cording to the contract of the sulo of the
property , rcsorvlncr the right to remove the
buildings from the lots ut any time before a
specified day. Thn second provides for the
county securing time sufficient to remove tbo
buildings , nnd thu third is for tbo county
leasing the buildings of Hascall , but names
no figures as rental. The propositions were
referred to the finunco committee.
Clerk Webb was instructed to notify the
workmen on the now county hospital to stop
work until the changes ordered are ap
proved. _

Duncan and the Plumbers.
The Journeymen plumbers are after the
scalp of Plumbing Inspector Duncan , und in-
* tcnd to lo.ivo no stone unturned to secure his
removal from office. They claim that Dun
can has done everything ho can to bring
about their defeat in tbo struggle between
thorn and tbo master plumbers , and that ho
has used his official position to accomplish
this end. They assert that his recent bil-
ligercnt attitude toward W. H. Spclman Is
duo alone to the fact that Spelman has boon
with them and .refused to stand by the mas-
tors' association In Its intention to order a
lockout , and that In passing his opinion upon
work done by "scabs" ho has made such
opinion favorable in order to injure them.
And so thn journeymen plumbers' union
desires the official decapitation of Mr. Dun
can.Tho matter was laid before the central
labor union nt a meeting hold
In Green's hall last nisrtit , by a
committee from the plumbers' union ,
and as a result a > committee was appointed
to take such action as it shall deem neces
sary to accomplish the desired .end. Reso
lutions were adopted , addressed to the
mayor and council , setting forth those
charges against Duncan , and asking that ho
bo rouioved from office and a more suitable
man appointed. Those resolutions will be
laid before the mayor on Monday , with the
request that ho present them to the council
at the mooting to no hold Tuesday night.
Duncan says ho is perfectly neutral as far
as tbo two organizations are concerned , but
after further conversation , acknowledged
that bis sympathies really loaned
towards tbo masters' association , as ho bad
pnco been a muster plumber himself.

The Journeymen plumbers' walkout dur
ing the past week Gas affected , to some or
ient , every building trades union in the city.
The walkout is'duel to the declaration made
by the master plumbers , at a meeting hola
Saturday night ; tiiat they would order a
lockout the following Wednesday. The
Journeymen did , wt wait for this , but
walked out { ot ( their own accord ,
Monday morning , , , without parley , In
throe shops 'only have they remained at
work. These are gtrang & Clark's , W. H.
Spelnmn's and WoISban & McBwan's. The
men are still ouVa'AVtnero Is nothing to indi
cate a speedy adjustment of tbo differences
between masters and Journeymen. The
whole trouble arose from tno refusal of tbo
Muster's association to recognize the union ,
Tbo principal light has been made
upon the Hussey & Day company ,
under contract to do the plumblne In the
now BKB buildlnir. This Jinn has boon un
able to secure Journeymen since the walk
out , hut instead secured the services of live
or six members of the master's association
and pcrsuuaed thorn to don overalls and go
to soldering. This precipitated moro trouble ,
The Journeymen declared that uuless thcso
men , "scabs" as they called them , were sent
off the work they would induce all the painters -

tbo workmen on , the building , to leave it.

William McGregor , in whoso hands are all
the papers and a goodly portion of thu work
incidental to establishing the Carpenters'
Co-Operntivo store , is pushing tlio enterprise
rapidly towards a successful consummation ,
and if the same success attends the efforts of
himself and others who are taking such lively
interest in tbo enterprise in the future as
has in tbo pan ) , the store will soon uo an ac
complished fact. Over two hundred und
fifty shares of stock at $3.50 a share Imvo
already been subscribed , giving about $1,500
as a starter. Five hundred shares must be
disposed of before the store will bo opened.
Tbo preliminary work has been done with
much care , and the rules adopted make un-
fnirnoss Impossible. Only heads of fumiliee
can hold stock und no onu man can hold more
than two shares , making It impossible far
anyone to obtain a controlling interest and
run the store for profit. The merchandise to
be carried in stock will bo general In its na
ture , but principally provisions.
"If by the establishment of the
store , " said Mr. McGregor yester
day , "wo can save ourselves a few
dollars a month In the cost of provisions , it
is equivalent to an incrcaso In wages , and
whv shouldn't wo do it if wo can. 1 think it
will bo a great thing for the carpenters , and
I hope tbo Hchemo won't lull through. "
