Atmlo Merrill riled her petition la tbo dls
tnot court to-day to foreclose a mortgage ol
$75,000 , given on a quuttcr section of land

the cose are Alexander 8. Porter , Fanny C
Porter , Benjamin A. Gibson , Jonutlmi
Cbase , Charlena Chase , J. M. lloardsle ;
and Charlotte Ii. Hoardsley. There is ai
interesting story connected with thl
land deal. The plaintiff , Mrs
Merrill it a resident of New York city , al
although her husband has been m Lincoln
for several months oast. When the boom on , three years ngo , the land was sold to
Messrs. Chase , Gibson & Be.irdsloy. who
soon after sold it to Porter , who Is a resident
of Boston. It appears that 'there were
charges of fraud never clearlv defined in
connection with the sale of the land , but no
open charges were made against any ono.
Mrs. Davis , n lady real estate agent , brought
suit for her commission on the sale to Gib
son , which is still ponding. JL'ortor paid $025
per acre for tbo land , a sum much greater
than it was worth , and has npparentod re
pented his bargain. Hence the foreclosure.

A Worlcinifinan's View * .
A prominent Lincoln laborer contributes
the following mite to Tnu BBB'B bureau
i .letter ;
"Astute modern philosophers realize that
any previous condition of servitude does not
prc.oUulf political longings. Even the toiler
who mops the sweat from his brow in the ef
fort to secure for thu men who make his liv
ing for him two hours less work a day for
the tame tnouey , loom forward to the time
when ho can draw JIM n month from tbo
public treaiury with aa much eagerness at
thu man who is born an ofHce-holder. A Lin
coln banker has political plans , uud , us every
politician should do who oxpoota to winho Is
selecting good and truu men to 1111 the county
ofllccs thU fall. Among the list Is n man
labeled an cifhteen-karat worklagnian , and
who takes great stock in all labor movements.
This man U booked for couuty Jiulgc. and ex
pects to curry the labor voto. It has never
developed that he ever did moro than talk
and instruct tlie poor , dawn-trodden laborer ,
but ho fancies he In solid. Some doubts have
benn uttered against his complete conver
sion , anil some few laboring men oven de
clare he labors solely for oftlcd. It is not Im
probable that he will soon undergo a crucial
; est which will determine whether ho Is
gold or lllled , The leaders of the labor movo-
nent propose to throw the vote solid for
iledgtjd candidates , regardless of color , poli-
: ic or religion. This Is not a prediction it
is n throat.
A Correction.
The following communication speaks for
itself :
LIXCOLX , Neb. , July 30. I ask the privi
lege of making u correction in TUB BKB in
regard to an article In circulation , that men
bad been discharged from the service of the
U. & M. at Nebraska City for belonging to
the Order of Railway Conductors. The men
who wore discharged at Nebraska City were
not order men. There is no ill feeling be
tween the officials of the southern district
and the order , and such reports seeking to
do them an injustice are charged to the order
bj some ono who has not the courage to tell
the truth. The Order of Railway Conductors
does not soon the vindication of any ono
whose conduct would bring reproach unou
the calling whether no belongs to the order
or not. Our order has always received the
kindest possible treatment at the hands of
Superintendent Rogers and his assistants ,
and these efforts to bring discord between
tbo order and its true friends are as useless
as they are contemptible.

"Too much can not bo suid in condemnation
of the present decedent law , " suid a state
ofildal this morning. "It is an outrage in
every sense of the word. Why , it does away
wittr tbo homestead in every essential thing
that it implies. For instance , a man having
lost his tlrst wife before taking effect ot this
law , is left with a child and marries again ,
dying without offspring from the second mar
riage , tbo estate , both personal and real ,
under the provisions ot the new law , would
bo divided equally between the child of tbo
first marriage and the widow , excepting the
homestead , which would descend to the
widow in absolute title in case its appraised
value did not exceed $1,000 , after deducting
the amount of encumbrance on the same , and
In case its value did exceed (1,000 the widow
would have tbo absolute right to retain the
homestead , subject to encumbrance , b > pay
iug to the natural heirs one-half of the
appraised value after deducting , frotn the
tame 11,000 , as provided In the statutes. The
value of a homestead , as a rule , does not con
sist In any of the values that might bo
uppr.ilsod by disinterested partiesbut , lies , in
a great measure , In family associations and
the deslro that should exist In every ono to
perpetuate the family name and holdings.
The now law renders thin absolutely impos
sible in all cases , as above mentioned. Every
man loft a wiuow.with children on his hands ,
disrupts his familv by a second marriage
under the existing doscedeut law.
"And now as a further illustration of the
Injustice of the law. Wo will suppose a Mr.
Adamson to have lost his wife in 16S8 and is
left with two motherless children. In 1880
ho commits the error of marrying again , and
by the second wife ho bus two children. He
dies intestate possessed of 10,000 , and to
avoid complication we will suppose him to
nave been without homestead. Under the
law the estate is divided as follows , viz. :
To thu wlfo 11,000 iu lieu of homestead , and
one-third of the remainder or $9OCO , total
JlO.WiO. To ouch of the four children one-
fourth of the remaining estate or $1,833.
Clooely following the death of the husband
and father the mother dies and to her two
children will descend her proportion of her
husband11 ! ostat-o ; so that the llnal division
of the estate among the children of tbo two
marriages isl,8 J to ouch of two children by
the llrst wlfo , and ? 10,1GO to each of the two
children ot the second marriage. "

As my fancies coino and go.
Dwellers In n royal palnco
Have not softer couch than mine ;
And , lol here's a lily chalice ,
Brimming with tha morning's wmo.
Yonder brook sings low and softly ,
But I cannot catch Its words ,
As they blond in silvery music
With the notes of breeze and birds.
In this sweet , still summer weather
It is easy to forget
That our life has toil or trouble ,
Has a cloud , a jar , or fret.
Why should we try to remember !
It is well to dream and rest ,
And forgot that wo grow wary ,
Though our dreams are areauis at best.
Happy howho puts away
Thoughts of daily life and strife ,
Who is deal to dlu and discord
Jarring through tl'o chords of Ufa.
Let me Ho thus l clover ,
As a child ou mother's ' breast ,
And awhile the bburrf Ily over ,
Dream sweet arcams of peace and rest.

Early Cloglnc Movement.
The retail boot nail shoo merchants inauR-
uratcd the closing of tholr stores at 0:30 : p.
m. on Tuesday evening last.
There uro several exceptions , howoTOr.
who are still keeping tlie old hours , notably
More , Lang and Cook , ou Farnatn street. A.
D. Morse in away from Omaha , and as his re
turn is dally expected his manager did not
tliink it incumbent to Join the movement la
the absence of instructions from his superior.
Lang and Cook would not close because
Morse kept open. Mr. Lang said :
"I was perfectly willing to close at 0:30 : p.
m. if my competitors on the street bad done
so , but I could not afford to close and leave
what trade there was to them. "
Mr. Cook , it la understood , was also will
ing to close , but was compelled for the name
reason to keep open.
Thirteenth and Tenth street teem with
shoe stores of lessor magnitude , and they
are always open ready to tell goods. Many
of these stores handle boots and shoes in
connection with dry goods and clothing , and
some handle a heterogeneous mass of com *
modities from shoes to disli pans.
The proprietor of one , of the larger Thir
teenth stores , near Farnnin , said that ho was
willing to close It the Farnam street peopla
nad douo GO , notwithstanding the fact that
most of his trade is in the evening , coming
from mechanics and laborers.
Another Thirteenth street shoo merchant
said that ho could not close because Brandeis
& Sons were open all evening , and they
handled shoes. Thus it is all the way down
the street , one would not close because the
other had not.
A'clork in a Thlrtooonth street store said
it made voryHlttle difference whether they
were closed or opun , ns they sold very few
if any goods in the evening. Another olerk
on the same street thought they had a "kick
coming , " and that the workingmen should
get together and aid the clerks.
"It makes mo hot , " lie said , "to think that
I am not getting the treatment that many
other shoe clerks are receiving at the hands
of the losses. I am Just us capable of enjoy
ing a rest us anyone , and 1 need it. While
those other fellows are out wulkiug with
their wives , or buggy riding with their girls ,
I and many moro clerks ou thin street uro
sitting inthu stores inventing and trying to
kill time. " They wouldn't ' closu on Tenth
street for anything ; it would deprive them
of the pleasure of dusting off shoe boxes and
selling calico and thincs , for there is no evi
dence of their soiling any shoes.
Some of the Omaha shoo merchants are as
eager In their championship for the early
closing hour as the others uro opposed to it.
They all nope that Mr. Morse's return will
straighten matters out , and that all the Fur-
nam street merchants will Join in the move
Mr. Julius Meyer , secretary of the local
assembly of the Knighta of Labor , speaking
upon the matter of the erection of an assem
bly hall , said that so far as the movement in
augurated something over a year ago for tlii *
purpose , the schema was practically dead.
At that time it was arranged that the Knights
of Labor , in conjunction with the other
trades and labor unions of the city , should
give a series of Fourth of July celebrations
and other entertainments , and after all bills
bad burn puitl , the surplus should go towards
building u trades' ' assembly hall. Bubncri | > -
tlon lists wore circulated among the mer
chants and the first celebration was given s
year ago the 4th of last July. It was a grand
success every way except financially , but
in that it was a failure. U being
evident that the large uuui of money
necessary for the erection of a hall could not
bo raised in this way , it was decided , bv a
resolution passed nt si meeting of the direct
ors , to abandon the schema and the treasurer
was ordered to return tha money to those
who subscribed to the fund , pro rata , and
this was accordingly done , mm to-day , ac
cording to the statement made by Mr.
Meyer , there Is not a , cent , in the bands of
the treasurer of the local assembly placed
there to bo used for the erection of 1111 as
sembly hall.
In this column last Sunday it was stated
that certain Journeymen plumbers had gene
into business for themselves since the plumb
ers strike was declared "off. " The journey
men plumbers take exception to this state
ment , as they have a right to do , the strike
not yet having been declared off. What the
writer wished to say was that the men men
tioned had gone into business for themselves
since the strike was declarcil "on" and It
was so written , but the types made it direct
ly opposite. Justice to the plumbers who
have madn surh n long struggle for whut
they consider right , calls for this explana
* #
"Can a non-union printer go Into any
nowspanor oflleoin this city and goto work ! "
asked an ofllcur of the plumbers' union n day
or two ago , while discussing the merits of
the present strike. "Can a , non-union
clgarmakcr , a non-union tailor , a non-union
bricklayer , or any non-union men cot em
ployment in the same shops of other trades
where union men are employed ] Go over
the field and I don't think you will llnd n
one , but the master plumbers ask us to work
with non-union men. How cart wo go back
under that condition , when one of the chief
objects of our organization is to down 'scab'
labor ! Wo couldn't do it and maintain our
union. All wo us It of the bosses is to dis
charge the non-union men in their employ
and promise to employ no others , and wo
will go back under the old scale. "
* *
An uninterested party who lias bad con
versation with both parties to the stnko , Bays
there is no reason why the difficulty shouldn't
be formally ended. The Journeymen say
that all they want is the discharge of the
non-union men now employed and the prom
ise of the bosses to liiro "scabs" no longer ,
and when the bosses are talked to they say
that they would prefer to have union men
in their shops , but cannot afford to give in
to the striker * . A number of contractors
and architects in the city have bocotno dis
pleased with the bosses for refusing to make
any concessions , whatever. They say their
work Is delayed and uro inclined to ascribe
the attitude of the master plumbers to bull-

The organized laboring men of Omaha are
not payiug as much attention to the eight-
hoar movement as the unions of other cities.
With the exception of discussing the matter
occasionally in union meetings , and the Cen
tral labor union , nothing Is being done. A
prominent member of the last named organ
ization called u llKK reporter' * attention to
this fact Thursdav , and continuing said that
the time between the present and the day in
May next , when thy general demand Is to DO
made , is so short that worklugmen every
where should bo active. Ho wanted to know
if something couldn't ' bo done to arouse the
Oinalm workmen from their lothargio state.
A bystander expressed the opinion that
unless the project , per so , wore sufficient to
do this nothing clso would , ana then the
controversy was dropped.
In every union tlioro are men moro radical
than othois , and this is true of the carpen
ters' unions of Omaha. Tlia union carpen
ters of the city are far from being satisfied
with the present condition of things , es
pecially in regard to the action of nearly all
contractors of the city In allowing them but
: w rents for the tenth hour of a day's work ,
instead of 45 , as the rules of the union call
for , and further , the refusal of a few con
tractors to nay moro than 27K cents an
hour throughout the day. Those are real
grievances , which do exist , and the radical
members of the unions are urging their
moro conservative brethren , at every moot
ing , to make a stand. Hut the coniervatlvo
element Is in the majority , and it
has been aoeut decided this week
{ hut no demand will be made
at present , and probably not until spring ,
These conservatives say that the unions are
still too weak and that there ore too many
non-union men In the city for them to tuUo
action now. It is tbeir intention to spend
the Intervening months between this and
spring in Inducing these non-union men to
Join the unidns ; in fact , this work hasial-
ro.idy begun , und the union men uro meeting
with great success in increasing the mem
bership of their organ nations.
There will bo no settlement of the diffi
culty nmonir tlm cuarniukur8 and manu
facturers regarding the use of the rod label
until the meeting of the national convention
in September , the matter really being a
question of privilege , and it falls to tha
national convention to decide whether the
local union lias the richt to endorse a label
which is used solely to induce purchasers to
buy cigars made nt local factories rather
than these made in the oast. But those made
elsewhere iu boxes bearing the blue
label , are also made by union
men and it IB claimed that Aha
Omaha men by endorsing the red labelin-
Juro the union mcu elsewhere. There bus
been BOUIO talk among smaller factories of
reducing the men's wages if the rod label
wasn't sustained , but it is the general im
pression that this will not bo attempted.
Twenty-five now members were admitted
to the Bricklayer * ' union Tuesday night. All

Tlioro ran bo no settlement of the diffi
culties existing between the muster und Jour
neymen plumbers upon the basis asked by
the latter. The bosses Imva signed contracts
with about twenty non-union men to give
them employment for one year , and they-say
that they cannot break these agreements Jor
the solo purpose of taking back the iow
strikers that still remain out.
