Jack' Crooks made ono of the most brilliant
plays ever seen on the local frrounds In
Wednesday's gnuio. It was In tlio seventh in-
nlng , nnd was a hard run and nick up wltn ono
band ol a vicious grounder oft of big Itowo's
bat , supplemented with a miraculous throw
to first m tlmo to rctlro the runner. Jack
received a storm of npuluuso that lasted for
fully a minute. Great player , that Crooks
of ours.
A movement Is on foot to give Manacer
Selco a big benefit on the 15th of August.
Besides an interesting programme of throw
ing nnd base running , there will be an ex
hibition game between the Minneapolis nnd
the home team. Selco is deserving of this
compliment , as ho has brought Omaha's
team up to ft most flattering standard , and Is
n hard working , careful and painstaking
manager. A royal crowd will most llitely
turn put m recognition of his good work ,

The Jreo delivery nystcm of the Omaha
postofflco Is Rooll to' bo reconstructed nnd ex
tended. Special Postofilco Inspector Spnnglor
arrived in the tytyyostorday morning. Mr.
Snanglor has charge of the free delivery
lystoii. Ho wns , tntionod In this city about
thrco years ngo M inspector.
Mr. Spanglor suggested to Postmaster Gal
lagher yesterday that they take a look nbout
the outlying districts of the city In order that
ho might nayo an Idea of the amount of
territory cov.Qj-qji , eta Ho expressed
himself us being surprised and aston
ished at the great changes which hod
taken plan * about the city slnco ho resided
hero. Said ho : " 1 stai ted out with the Idea
of recommending that the districts that now
have but ono carrier delivery per dny should
bo Increased to two , but when I saw what n
great amount of territory was not covered at
all I was forced to the conclusion that tlio
Borvlco would have to bo extended , even if it
bccama thereby impossible to Increase the
sorvlco in the districts which are now served.
Wo nro greatly crumped by the appropria
tion for carrier service , nnd while I recog-
ul.e the fact that Omaha is outltlod to moro
carriers , and should have them , it will bo 1m-
poslblc at this time to make all the changes
necessary. " ,
Mr. Spanglor was asked how many addi
tional carriers ho would recommend.
"That is moro than I can stnto at this
tlmo , " ho replied. ' ! saw a statement in an
evening paper to the effect thnt Mr. Galla
gher would ask for fifteen moro carriers. I
don't know whore the reporter got his information
mation , but I am sure ho didn't ' got it from
Mr. Gallagher. The liloa of such an Increase
is absurd. "
The reporter Inferred , from Mr.
Spanglor's remarks , that not moro
than five additional carriers would
bo recommended. In the course of his re
marks. Mr. Suanglor alluded to the crowded
condition of the postofllco , and that some
thing should bo done at once to secure addi
tional room. The only way this could bo
done would bo to rent moro room or to build
an addition iu the area west of the building.
Ho thought a commodious ono-story addition
could bo built for about $10,000. This would
afford all the room necessary. This matter
should have been attended to lone ago , as
the present quarters are entirely too small.
Mr. Spanglor said this question was not in
his province , and should bo pushed by the
congressmen ,

The Great Triumph nnd Trnglo End
ot'an Artiwt'H Model in Berlin.
Two years ago Ellso Kommlor , then
eighteen years old , was a waitress at a
restaurant in the students' quarter in
Berlin , saya the Now York Sun. She
was not pretty. She was freckled ,
square-shouldered and dumpy. She was
so plain that she did not oven got the
usual caresses and love pats which the
Gorman waitresses almost invari
ably got from every man they servo.
She had , however , ono beauty of form
her arms. They wore largo , white and
exquisitely molded. A young artist
noticed them ono day , as Elise , with
her sleeves rolled up , brought him his
beer and roast goose. From that day
on Elise was probably moro sougntafter
by young men than any ether waitress
in Berlin. Every artist wished her to
sit for him , so that ho could paint her
beautiful arms.
After the young artist who discovered
her arms had given their counterpart to
his Hobos and Vonusos nnd Uianns
dozens of other artists wished to repro
duce thom on their canvases. As a
model Elise made double nnd treble the
money she had earned as a waitress.
She spent it all upon her person and be
came immediately vain. By moans of
a bit of lacing , a ( roe use of cosmetics ,
and a lot of now gowns aha made her
self ever into a very attractive young
woman. She had levers bv the do/on ,

paint. lie told her , however , that she
need not take tlio trouble ; ho had found
a woman with moro finely molded arms
than hers. She throw herself on the
iloor und wept. Ho tossed her
some money to comfort hor. She
threw it back to him and
hurried olT homo. There she locked
herself in her rooms. For two daya she
rofudod admittance to every one and ate
nothing. On the morning of the third
day her landlady was attracted to her
bedroom by groans. On the bed lay

WASHINGTON , July 2T . On the Itith of
Juno the San Francisco papers contained
statements of certain survivors of the disas
ter to the American vessels at Samoa , en
listed on the Trenton and Vnndnlla , which ,
if true , picAontcd a seven ) nultotment
against the navy department. The papers
reported thnt nbout tlilrty of the men were
roaming around Snn Francisco urfablo to
sccuro the wages duo thdm , destitute- and
dependent upon charity. The charges of the
men were hi substance that they had n6t
been paid "bag money , " about W , which
the United States contracted to allow
them m ciiSO of tha loss of their
clothes by the sinking of the vessel ;
that their wngus prior to the date of
the disaster liad not been paid , that they had
boon discharged andnont adrift , none of them
with moro than W5 ; that the clothes
furnished them hi Samoa were charged for al
regular rales , Ic.ivlug them little or nothing
to live on ; that Lieutenant Cnrlln , executive
oftltor of the Vnndnlia , refused to sign their
cortillcntcs to bo presented to the fourth

petition to Secretary Ululno that he use his
Influonuo. Copies of the newspaper articles

was referred to Secretary Tracy who
ordered an Investigation and tha

Ucnham , ot the Mnro Island navy yards.
says the newspaper articles have a. trraln of
truth nnd n great deal of exaggeration in
them ; that the attack upon Lioulommt Car-
lin Is unjust In the extreme for the reason
that ho remained in San Francisco by his
own request In order that ho might bo able
to look alter tlio Intorostn of the Vnndalla's
men. The commodore further furnishes a
statement tnndo by Lieutenant Burnett
showing iho amounts paid to men who
reached SMI Francisco , ranging from f O t ( $
$ JTJ. Eighteen of the man nro reported as
having dcsortod after the arrival nnd ofcoursu
they received nothing. Lieutenant Carlin , iu
his report , says that of the nineteen men the
San f'rauolseo papers claim are roaming
about the water front of that city , ono was
discharged at his own request ut the expira
tion of his term of enlistment , tnroo were
discharged by sentence of court-martial uud
thirteen were dusortuis. The clottiing Usuod
to the men was charged to thorn at u dis
count 00 % per cent. It was good clothing ,
worn nllku uy officers nnd men. The claims
of the inon were excessive ns a rule : As to
the .statement Unit ho hud told the men ho
would help no ono until ho got his own
money , Lieutenant Carlin says :
" 1 will nav that I am here at my own re
quest for the special purpose of puttlug
wrecked sailors in shupn so that ttio fourth
auditor may properly settle the men's ac
counts. Thiswoik is now fiuishcd. Appli
cations for Indemnity ( tug money ) hut boon
made out for nil the men , dead or nllvo , aud
I huvo as yet talton no step toward getting
my own money. "

Explorer Mulr Suya It Is'Feasible
Olastollnn Itomtilns in Alaska.
John Muir , according to a San Fran
cisco letter in the Port hind Oregonian ,
that ho has by no moans yet completed
his explorations in Alaska and that in
regard to certain elephant ronminn
there , the bridging of Bohring roa , and
other matters , ho hopes eooti to add
information that will bo of great vnluo
to science. Although tlio bridging of
Bohring straits haa boon widely ridi
culed Muir IH incllnod to think thnt
such a feat will ono day bo accom
plished lie says :
Senator Staniord'a cirdlo of steel
around the earth via Boh ring boa is a
perfectly feasible scheme. Bohring
straits uan bo bridged. It is only ai.xty
miles auross in the narrowest place aud
there are three islands strung along in
it. This would divide the bridge up
into four divisions , but besides this tile
water ib very shallow. In many plnccs
it is not over twenty foot deep. I un
dertake to say that if a man was strong
enough to talco ono of our California
red wood trees in his hands ho could
put it down anywhere over the 000
miles of Bohring sea and yotliavo 100
foot of it left above the water. This
shows how easy it would , bo to bridge
the straits. The only trouble would .be
from floating icebergs , but thnt could
bo easily overcome by constructing
swinging bridges , lilto that they have
across the river at Chicago , In this
way the straits could be kept clear all
the time 'and trains of cars could run
right along.
' There are BO many strange tilings in
Alaska , " added the diswweror of the
Muir ghioinr , "that have not'yotcome
to the knowledge of the puhlie that ono
v/ho huhbuon them hesitates whdro to
