IIo In n Coward.
JttilRO Wakelcy hold court at 10 o'clock ' yes
terday morning , to hear Mr , Connell'ft ' applica
tion for n writ of mandamus , compelling de
fendants to turn the as on again in his house ;
nlso , for n permanent Injunction restraining
It from shutting it off ugnin.
Mr. Hoywnrd , superintendent of the com-
panyappoarod with his lawyer.Mr. Pritchott ,
and when the court convened , asked for tlmo
to prepare nnd file nn answer. Ho also stated
thnt the only reason for Mr , Council's being
left In the dark was his bill had not bean paid
before the 10th hist. A check , however , bud
"boon received front him yesterday morning' ,
nnd Immediately an ngent had been sent to
turn the gns on ,
This nctlon scorned to surprise Mr. Con-
neil , and speaking rather angrily , ho said :
"They may regard It ns a very smart thing
to sneak up there nnd do Just
thnt sort of thing , and it Is m keeping with
nil their proceedings , which I charactori/o as
cowardly. I want to show thnt It was out of
pure mnlico nnd for the purpose of not only
annoying mo and my family but to heap op
pression upon us. It Is the intention of this
company , und especially thnt man Iloyward ,
to annoy nnd oppress mo. "
Mr. Connell manifested much bitterness
towards Mr. HoywarA and repeatedly
hurled cpilhnts nt him , The lattor'a only
reply was smiles.
Finally the plalntiil advanced towards him ,
and siud :
"Yes , smile ; you're ' a smiling gentleman ,
and a fit man to represent this company. ' '
Turning to the court , ho continued :
"I would not take tbo smiling sycophant's
word for anything , nnd I characterize him , as
acownrd. "
Mr , Pritohott undertook to mnko reply to
this sort of language , whereupon Council re
torted )
"I am perfectly willing to back anything I
may say hero or on the street , and include
you in the same boat with him. "
Mr. Connell then insisted on the court
Issuing him an order restraining the gas
company from again interfering with his
premises until the case could be hoard :
but on the representation made by Pritchott
and bis offer to file an aflldavit that the gas
would not bo again turned off , his honor
thought it would not bo necessary to issue
any kind of an order.
"I would not talto their word before tele
phoning to niy wife and finding itoutthrough
her that the gas has been turned on , " replied
Mr. Connoll.
' 'If they attempt to trlfio with the court , "
said Judge \Vakeloy , "I will certainly find
florae way of getting oven , and Saturday
morning , Mr. Connell , I will hoar the case
on your motion for both a writ of mandamus
and a permanent Injunction. "
Mr. Connull stated that ho had never refused -
fused to pay his bills ; but , even if ho had ,
the reasons for doing so , ou the ground of
extortionate rattts , would bo good and the
company would have no right to deprive him
of gas until the matter had been settled.
At the conclusion of this lively little tilt ,
Mr. Connell wont directly to Justice Ander-
son's court ; where ho commenced suit against
the gas company for $200 damages.

Peter S. Boron began a suit in the county
court yesterday against Michael Donnelly to
recover { 371.57 , amount alleged to bo due on

Mr. Kollov offered aa amendment to allow
the superintendent of buildings to Issue
orders for material which might bo required

Mr. Popploton moved that the schedule ol
anlaricaof Janitors bo stricken from the report -
port , and proposed that tbo old schedule bo
adopted by resolution temporarily. The mo-
tlon was lost.
Mr. Popploton moved to amend tbo rule
relating to teachers by inserting the followIng -
Ing : "No person not now under contract to
teach , shall be Uglblo to teach In any grade
of any school In this district who has not
completed the course at the high school or at
Bomo institution of equally good standing ,
And In addition studied ono year at n normal
school or had had ono year's practice in
teaching. "
Mr. Martin wished to bo put on record as
opposing the motion , because there were
-many graduates of the high school who were
"us capabto of teaching the lower grades as
one who had taught for ten years.
Mr. Roes opposed the amendment , saying
that it only admitted graduates ot the high

lap anygrade.
Mr , Poppleton supported his sldo of the

Mr , Popploton was not discouraged , but

that whenever tbo supplies or inatoria
needed to do any certain work involves an
expenditure of more than I10U , the committee
having the matter in charge shall advertise
for bids , which shall bu brought before the
board. This motion was also lost.
Mr , Rcca then moved to amend by empowering -
powering the board of examiners to employ
assistants when examining special teachers ,
Dr. Bavillo moved to strive out the tlmo of
reooss lu the High school , leaving the tlmo
for bavin ? recess net by the principal. The
motion was carried.
The committee then arose and the bean

A Ocitlus From Among the Almond
ISyos of Chin n.
Ah Say , conornl superintendent of the
Chinese laborers on the Union Pacific ays-
ten ) , was In the city Wednesday { night. Ho
wasjhoro on business with the general head
Ah Say is a very qulot , unobtrusive llttlo
man , of about fifty years.
IIo received TIIR Bur. man pleasantly , nnd
replied to the questions put In the best Eng
Thirty years ago ho came to America ,
from Canton , China , nnd began work at once
for the Central Pacific road , laboring with
shovel nnd pick on the section , For ton
years ho continued in the service of the
Central Pacific ; at the end of that tune ho
liud been promoted from the position ot
common laborer to the general management
of the 3,000 Cblueso graders employed by
that road.
At that tlmo ho was offered moro remuner
ative Borvlco with the Union Pacific. Ho
accepted , and has for twenty years past held
the highest position over given any man of
Ills nationality by an American railroad ,
The men who are directly under his con
trol number about five hundred , and nro
chicflv employed In the coal mines at Evanston -
ton , Wyo. There was a time , some years ago ,
when moro than twlco as many men were
at work in these mines , and the daily output
was not far short of eighty carloads all the
year round ; now it Is leas than forty. Other
mines have been opened , and parts of the
working force transferred to them.
Naturally , the conversation led from thin
to that other country , the land of lethargy ,
his home. Two years ago he said bo last vis
ited China , and then remained only two
weeks at Canton , the homo of his parents ,
now dead.
For years before be had not been there ,
nnd the changes ho saw changes in modes
of travel and communication , In the very
spirit of tbo people were such as greatly to
amaze him. Very tersely he said :
'Yes , my country is slow. They have
done little In much ttmo. Now they learn ,
have railroads , telegraph , telephone , all
American devices ; now they will do much in
little tlmo. "
Ho had seen the American missionaries at
work uud heartily denied that they wcra
either Jeered at or imperiled in their work by
the higher classes , as recent advices from
the Orient state has long been the case.
Their work is regarded as neb In any way
harmful , because no ono who was willing to
sacrifice so much as was necessary to Join
the now faith over became a very bad citi
zen thereafter.
Of course there are treaties governing
those matters , but then treaties oven are not
hold sacred in America when made -with
Chinamen , and It might Just as well bo ex
pected that the Chinese would retaliate in
kind. But they do"not.
The Franco-Chinese war had ] Ust been
brought to a bloody close when Ah Say last
visited China. By mentioning this font ho
drew upon himself a fire of questions relat
ing to the lessons of that conflict.
Ho could reply only in general terms.
The array had not been found nearly so de
fective as the navy. The arms earned by
the Infantry were mostlyof American and
English pattern , and as good or better than
those of their opponents. But it wus like
arming a lot of school boys with Malay
spears. They didn't know how to handle
their weapons with facility and accuracy.
Nothing but drill , constant training , would
civo that , nnd in that direction the work of
the present is now directed.
Perhaps the greatest improvement is being
made where the Chinese were weakest , in
building and armoring ships of war. The
old Junk models have long been discarded
nnd the lines suggested by an active , grace
ful French man-of-war have been in largo
measure substantiated.
In a trice the blue Pacific was recrossed
and an effort was marie to got Ah Say's
opinion on tbo treatment accorded Ills coun
trymen by the congress of the nation.
"No , no , " he said. "Tho Chinamen must
not discuss these matters. Ail will , I am
sure , find proper place in the end , but it is
for us only to wait to wait and hope. "
There was no suggestion of bitterness In
the concluding remark , naught but a calm
stoicism in some part recalling the Indian
nature , or so much of it as allows one to suf
fer Indicnltles as a people that are thrust
upon no other race , however vicious
and ignorant , and bo strong ,

What Is moro beautiful than an ancient

Apt is the comparison between such a growth
and an old man or woman Infused with
health and vigor. The sine qua non , the
Indispensable condition of vigorous youth ,
robust manhood and a virile old age , is sound
digestion. Without this lifo is shorn of the
hearty zest that should attend It. No moro

Jlon. Sol Draper Takes Issne With
the Interior Deportment.
NionrunA , Nob. , August 14. [ Special to
THE USE. ] "I ace that Tm : BED persists In
claiming that the Sioux bill must bo ratified
by congress before the president issues his
proclamation declaring It ooon , " said Hon.
Sol Draper to TUB BEG correspondent to
"You wore sent to Washington by Nio
brara to look after the portion to bo annexed
to Nebraska , Mr. Draper , and perhaps you
can RVO ! Tun QBR some light upon the sub
ject , " remarked the correspondent.
"In the first place , THE BBS Is mistaken In
regard to the manner of opening the reser
vation. Section S3 of the Sioux bill roads :
'This act shall take effect only upon the ac
ceptance thereof and consent thereto by the
different bands of the Sioux nation of In
dians , ia manner nnd form proscribe ! In the
twelfth article of the treaty between the
United States nnd the said Sioux Indians
concluded April 39 , 1803 , ' This nrtlclo pro
vides for three-fourths of the signatures ,
which tbo commission secured. Tlio section
then goei on to say , 'Which said acceptance
and consent shall bo made known by procla
mation by tbo president of the United States
upon satisfactory proof presented to him
that the same had boon ootalnod in the man
ner and form required by said twelfth article
of said treaty ; which proof shall bo pre
sented to him within ono year from the pas
sage of this act ; and upon failure of such
proof and proclamation this act becomes
of no cfTect and null nnd void.1 Now
this certainly does not look as If it hod to go
before congress before it is necessary for the
president to proclaim it open. "
"Thoro in another matter that bns nlso
been talked about that of surveys , " said
THE 13 BE representative.
"Why , section 'Jo piovidos for that. That
section says : 'There is hereby appropriated
$100,000 to bo applied and used toward sur
veying the InntlR heroin described as being
open to Battlement , to bo Immediately avail
able , ' which goes to prove , nlso , that the ob
ject of the bill was to settle the matter with
out further troubling congress. Ttioro will
doubtless be squatters , but of course poonlo
should not bo too hasty. The portion that
will bo a part of Knox county is already sur
veyed , but west of of range eight it is yotua-
BUrvoyod. "
"Do you look for the president's proclama
tion this falll"
"I do. I've stuck to it that the commission
was going to succeed , and I see no reason
why tbo president will not issue his procla
mation nt an early date. The sooner it is
done the better. It settles a great question
in which Nebraska is particularly interested ,
nnd I think if urged , upon by our representa
tives ho would issue his proclamation for the
opening of the Nebraska strip before that of
Dakota , as It would scttln the jurisdiction of
the territory without delay : because when
South Dakota is transferred Into a state this
portion south of the forty-third parallel will
be outof the jurisdiction of either Nebraska or
South Dakota. "
"Whnc benefits do you think JNlobrara
will derive from the opening of the reserva
tion ! " asked TUB UBB representative.
"It will get us 'out of the woods. ' We
shall no longer bo on the frontier with a
great barrier of vacant land lying idle. It
will bring the Elkhorn Valley railroad to us
nnd add greatly to our prosperity. The bill
provides for a gift ot Niobrara island to the
city for park purposes , which is a beautiful
piece of land near the mouth of the Niobrara
river , and only a quarter of a mlle away.
The largo government bridge , built at an ex
pense of $3,000 , crosses the Niobrara at this
point , and it will be very convenient. You
may say to TUB BEB that Niobrara is well
satisfied with her interest in the Sioux reser
vation , and is very grateful for what it has
gained and what it hopes to gain in cense
quence. Niobrara is the gateway between
Omaha and South Dakota. "
This land is to bo settled by actual settlers
tlors only , at (1.25 per acre , and there will bo
no opportunity for speculators. Homestead
settlers only are permitted.
Delegate Gilford' * Views. *
PiEnnu , S. D. , August 15. [ Special Tele
gram to Tan BEE.J Many conflicting re
ports have started about the matter of the
Sioux reservation treaty being returned to
congress for ratification before the land can
bo thrown open to settlement. Hon. O. S.
Gifford , delegate in congress , who helped
draft the bill , in a dispatch from Canton to
tbo Pierre board of trade this afternoon ,
says :
"It Is my opinion that no act of congress is
necessary to ratify the action of the Sioux
commission. They were appointed to
secure the consent of the Indians
to an agreement already ratltled , and
consented to on the part of the
government by act of congress approved
March 23 last. The commission made no new
agreement , nor did they depart from the
provisions of the act of congress referred to.
They wore instructed to obtain the consent
of the Indians to this agreement already rat
ified by congress , and now for congress to
ratify this agreement would , simply be doing
what has boon done , and the act under
which they were appointed and worked re
quired nothing of the sort but tbo contract. "

Terry was doubtless a Just retribution , but
from a legal stand point , ho had no reason to
believe that the ofllccrwas Justified.
Charles Odutt aald that from the situation

Naglo was fully Justified In bhooting Terry.
Striking Judge Fields in tbo face was an in

Flushing the Sowers. '
Yesterday the work of putting in flushing
tanks for the sewers was commenced at the
corner of First avenue and Pearl street.
There has been a good deal of trouble with
the First avenue sewer. There is but slight
fall , and the sewer has lacked cleansing.
The stench at times has been decidedly
strong. Tbo original plans provided for
tueso flushing tanks , but when the pipes
were laid , for some reason they were not put
in. The same state of facts exists in regard
to other streets and avenues. Now the city
has secured six of these tanks and will put
them in. The expeiisa of putting them in
now , as compared with what it would have
boon originally , is great. The paving now
has to be talton up and other work done ,
which could have been avoided in the first
These tanks are patented. The hold from

arranged that they fill themselves , and when

The water for these tanks comes from tbo

Happy Picnickers.
The picnic of the Congregational Sunday
school in Fulrmoupt park yesterday was an
Immensesuccess. . There wore fully three
hundred happy picnickers in attendance , and
the day was passed most pleasantly. Trans
portation was furnished by William Lewis ,
who took the youngsters to tbo park in hia
largest wagon , drawn by four horses. It
was a pleasant Bight to witness the passage
of the largest load of human freight , for
there were 104 of the little ones stowed away
in every place Imaginable.
The wagon was long enough so that thirty-
six children could sit along each side , a num
ber stan ding In the vacant space in the mid
dle , five on the footboard In front and an
other five on the seat withltho driver. It was
ono of tbo pleasantestit/tiiUures of the day
for the children , ana there were several
grown people aboard who" seemed to enjoy it
hugely. On the grounds everything was
provided , and there'.hlne to mar the
pleasant features of thcjday. None who at
tended could possibly rjgjrot it.

slight bruises and n severe shaking up.
The shock used them up considerably , nnd
they were taken to their homos nt Streets-

happened to pass underneath thorn Just at
the tlmo of the accident , was struck on the
shoulder by n falling charcoal furnnco which
the others wore using , and was severely
bruised. This is the third tlmo that Johnson
has fallen from the top of this Rtnglng , nnd

3. W. Payne , of Strootsvillo , filed Informa

imposition. There seems to bo no demand
there for a niulo guardian or protector.

P. C. Miller , the well known paper nnd
sccnlo artist , has again distinguished him
self by doing another piece of artistic paste
and paper work tnat is remarkable enough
to attract general attention , The wont has
been done on the ceiling of the First" Na
tional bank building. It It certainly some
thing to bo proud of , both by the possessors
nnd the artist. The material is heavy em
bossed gilts , with bronzed centers and fancy
mouldings , with the colors so happily blended
that the effect is superb.
One of the strong points of Mr. Miller's
"Work is the fact that whether the material
used Is low or high priced the combinations
will bo so perfect that a pleasing artistic of-
feet Is assured. And thus , while there may
bo many pieces of work in the city where
the material cost moro than the entire Job nt
the First National , there are. none where the
nrttstio eye will be bolter satisfied. Mr.
Miller is doing some fine work for Omaha
people that is attracting a great deal of at
