Bcnnie Day Ch-rccd with n Most
llevoltlmi Criiif * .
A beardless boy by the name of Bcnniu
Day , nged about iili , wus arraigned yesterday
On the charge of attempted rape on the pjrson
of Daisy Woolwme , a little suven-yuar-oid
The little girl was put on the stand and im
pressed with the necessity of tolling the
truth. She then told the story In all its dis
gusting details in a hesitating way , but with
every evidence of truth in bur appearance
and voice. She related that she went into
the small store on the corner of Thirty-first
nnd Corby streets in Omaha View ono week
ago last Sunday , In the afternoon. Young
Dny hud an organ in the store , and the Hale
girl und her two younger brothers were ut-
, true ted by Day's playing and went into the
store. They asked to bu allowed to play , too ,
and were allowed to do so. Thu boys bo-
camu tired of this fun in u short time and
went out , leaving the littlogirlwith D.iy. Ho
picked her up and carried her into n sidu room ,
which was used as a bed room , and put her
on the bed. He then took unwarranted liber
ties with her , and afterwards exposed his
puraon to nor and endeavored to induce her
to commit a most beastly und unnatural
cnmo. Before ho could accomplish his hel
lish design thi ) two little boys came back
nnd ho desisted. Llttlu Daisy then went
homo and told hur mother what had hap
The counsel for the defense subjected the
llttlo girl to a critical cross-examination but
could not shako her testimony in thn least.
The llttlo girl's mother was then put on
the stand nnd corroborated Daisy's story as
fur us the hitter part wus concerned , adding
thnt she hud gone to Day's placu of business
and usked him nbout the mutter. Husaid hn
wus very sorry for what occured and begged
her not to suy anything about it.
During the time tneso witnesses were giv
ing their testimony Day sat quietly by , not
in the luust concerned , ii'id at In
tervals ( milling Idiotically as somu portion of
the testimony struck him us being very
funny. Hn bears a villainous looking fnco.
When he Was placed on thu stand ho seemed
to bo Impressed with the ridiculous aspect of
the cuso , and grinned ut nourl v every ques
tion. Hu told his story , which agrcod In
ncurly evury particular with the onu told by
the little girl. Hu stated that ho kept u nur
sery store ut the corner of Thirty-flrst and
Corby streets , for his father. When ho
cutno to the portion of his story relating to
the bedroom ho said hu hud carried the llttlo
ono in the room and put her on the bed , but
wus only playing with her.
The court thought It was a queer way to
play , und bound him over in ? l-00 ! ,

The Hoard of Kilucntlon Work Until
Mldnlulit on Koutlno Iluslncffl.
A very largo amount of routine work ,
most of It neither Interesting nor Important ,
was accomplished by the school board last
Fir t of nil , the secretary was Instructed
to redeem a $5,000 bond , which represented
the Indebtedness on the Dupont school.
Superintendent James' annual report
called attention to the fact that the Increase
In school attendance was greater In projrar *
tlon than the growth of the city'a ' population.
There are now 20,5IU children of school
ago In Omaha , of which number 8,801 nro In
regular attendance nt the schools of the city ,
or an Increase of fill nor cent In two years ,
In 1883 the attendance was 7,134. ! These fig
ures would indicate n population of
l'XJOUO In IbSJj nnd of ll'J.OOO ut the first
day of the present year. Ho urged
ihbt the Jackson and Pleasant
schools be closed , on the ground thnt they
are not needed , other schools in the vicinity
having capacity to accommodate the pupils
of thcso two schools.
In a general way Omaha now ranks along
side Kochistur , Worcester , Providence und
other cities that never heard of Omaha until
u low years ago.
Thu resignation of Charlotte C. Bogen ,
of the Lake school , was accepted.
Mr. Millurd also proffered his resignation ,
stating that ha had less tlmu to givu the
work than it should havo. The board , however -
over , declined to let Mr. Mlllard ruslpn.
Mr. Stor ? , who had paid u llcensu of $13 on
a pool table , wanted togot it back from thu
school board treasury , nnw that the license
law has been repealed. The Judiciary com
mittee reported thnt Storz wasn't entitled
legally to the monuy , but In equity it was
decided to refund cloven-twelfths of the
sum.On recommendation of the high school
committee , .Mrs. Adele 12. Kobortsou
wus elected teacher of German ,
nnd Miss Bessie Snider teuuhur
of Latin In the high school for the ensuing
year. Other applications for various posi
tions were referred.
Chairman Wehrcr reported that the cost
of u holler house and water closets at the
Park school would be * 5UUO.
Awards for supplies for the next school
yuur wuru imulous follows :
John A. Wukciluld und George A. Hoag-
land , lumber and building material ; John A.
Cuulfiold , crayons , school books and miscel
laneous articles ; Gibson , Miller & Ulchurd-
son , paper , school blanks , etc. ; Nebraska
Fuel company , coal ; Jeff Bedford , wood ;
Nebraska Chemical company. Ink.
Mr. Clark wanted the board to divide the
bids. For instance , Bedford bid lowest on
soil coal and Mount & Griffin lowest on hard
coal ; the Nebraska Fuel company's bid
on both was lowur than either of
its competitors. Mr. Clark thought Bedford
should have the soft coal contract , and so on.
Hu thought the board should commit itself
to such a policy , but the board thoughtother-
John Hanon wus chosen engineer of the
Thu committee on sites nnd buildings
recommended that a silo near Fort Omaha
bo purchased ut a cost of SJ,5UO ; a situ in
Bedford Placu of four lots for $ .1,500 ; a situ

Center school situ , ono lot , for $ J"iOO ; u site
at Gibson , one acre , for $ 'J,500 ; u site in vi

The Watertown , Dak. , excursion will
leave the city this evening. It is intended
by those having the project in charge to
show to the business men of Omaha thu ad
vantages that region affords to this city.
The excursion has been but sparingly adver
tised. but there will bo nevertheless a num
ber of representative business men of
Omaha on board.
Mr. James Walsh , a well known resident of
Douglas county and also an owner of Water-
town realty , and at whoso suggestion this
opportunity was given to the members of
the Omaha board of trade aud such other
business men of the city ns should desire to
do si , to visit the most fertile region of
South Dakota said to-day :
Thu people of Omaha uro not alive to the
advantages of huvinc direct commuulcatlon
with this town of Watertown , They have
thuru unparalleled advantages for bulldinc
up a big city. The rusourcus of the tribu
tary territory are almost inexhaustible. Thu
Jim Hiver valley is unsurpassed in its pro
ductiveness as far us small irrain and corn Is
concerned , and thu farmers of that region
have awakunod to the fact that they can
iiiuku more money by devoting their corn to
fattening hogs than by sending it to Chicago
ut 80c pur bushel , and for the last five years ,
as the slock shipments will show , taken
from thu Chicago stock market , South Da
kota has scut u lurgur pur cunt of porkers to
Chicago than any otlior western state or ter
ritory. Therefore in addition to
sending the small grain to
Omaha , South Dakota if direct communica
tion wuro obtained would most materially
Increase the stock receipts at South Omaha.
and no ono could arguu but thut this would
buof the greatest benefit to the city pcoplo.
So I claim that though the excursion has not
been advertised us it should huvo been the
trip cannot bu without- favorable results
to Omaha und 1 think that uvcry wholesale
establishment should bu represented. "
Major Clarkson nnd about forty of his
aides met In the Mlllard hotel parlors last
night to talk over the general arrangements
for the Merchants' week parade. Each as
sistant marshal wns instructed to use every
endeavor to have his division as attractive as
possible. The object to bo aimed at Is qual
ity more than quantity , It is proposed to oc
cupy the wholu widMi of the streets by hnv-
tug the wagons und floats three or four
abreast instead of in single file. The prau-
tlco of huvlnir empty wagons In line will not

HOW HARDIN WON THE WIDOW
The Omaha Sport's Queer Courtship
of the Denver Lady.
WITHOUT COLLAR OR CRAVAT.
John WIIH Short on Dross Hut Lone on
Magnetism Bint. York WI B Infill-
tinted nml Her Cousin Loved
An Adonis In the Ken li.
John J. Hardln , of Omaha , Is charged with
bigamy , nnd the circumstances of his alleged
crhno involve the happiness and character of
the widow of a well known Denver man ,
says the Rocky Mountain Mows. Hardln is
on Omaha sport Ho once owned n btoro
there nnd sold sporting goods. Bnt Denver
knows him best for the female bicyclers wh'o
visited Denver last Juno. How few of these
who watched the gaudy panorama of tights
glide around Broadway Athletic park im
agined that the manager of the show was
preparing to carry away one of Denver's
bcnutlcs a charming widow , not yet thirty !
Such was the fact , however , and lhat unfortunate -
fortunate lady was Mrs. Florence Yoric.
Her husband , Mnrlln W. York , was for
merly a baggage master ut the Union depot.
Previous to that tlmo ho had run , ns a con
ductor on the Union Pacific , for which rood
ho hud worked for upwards of fifteen years.
These fifteen years of his existence were
spent at Golden and Denver. Ho was uni
versally esteemed and highly respected by
all who know him.
It was In Golden that he mot Miss Florence
once Scott , a winsome maiden who had Just
received her diploma from n school nt College -
lego Springs , In. Miss Scott and Mr. York
were married nbout 1SS1 , she being nbout
twcnly-ono years of age. Martin YorK died
October last , but Iho young wlfo loft free to
wed again had lost none of her beauty or
wealth of graceful charms. These attributes
completely won the regards of John J. Har
dln , und eight months , or less , after the
death of her husband Mrs. York became the
brldu of Hardln.
ENGAGED AT TI1K DIUVB.
There are many strange thlues connected
with the courtship of the pair. Mrs. York
became engaged again before her husband
had been dead four months. She mot the
man ut Council Bluffs , In. The introduclion
came shortly after her marital ties had bcon
severed by death. Mrs. York had been on a
visit to Massachusetts , the nalivo state of
her deceased husband. Having a cousin re
siding in Council Blufts she stopped to pay a
visit. Here she mot Hardln , who. it is al-
ICKcd , was keeping company with Mrs. York's
cousin. Although the cousin was u married
lady living with her husband , Hardln's
culls were encouraged , and the woman , it
Is avowed , planned to secure n divorce from
bur spousewhcn nho und Hurdin would wed.
Mrs. York became aware of these fuels ,
mil , nevertheless , when her superior beauty
began to lurn Iho current of Hardin's fickle
devotion to herself she was pleated and
promised to bo his wife. The memory of the
good man who had been her husband , whose
grave wns yet unmarked by a stone , seemed
to have faded entirely from her memory.
She was rendered powerless , apparently , by
1IKK NEW IN'IHTUATION I'Oll 1IAK11I.V.
Hardin was a rough man and not ono a
lady of education would bo expected to form
a friendship for. Ho were n slouch hat ,
dressed carelessly and did his courting with
out collar or tie. Nevertheless , the inex
plicable power that ho u icldod plunged two
loving friends into the vortex of personal
war. Mrs. York and her married cousin
both asserted their rinht to the possession of
the mngnotic Hurdiu. The cousin by priority
of claim ; Mrs. Ycrk by virtue of a diamond
ring that sparkled on the third flniror of her
left baud. One thine bccunia evident. The
Iowa lady was not to bo distanced
by a visitor. Tno war mostly raged ,
woman-like , in fiery words , wuxod hot and
Mrsi York' ceased to bo u visitor. She left
her cousin's house. The young widow wns
the victor. The lowly Iowa residence had
no more charms for Air. Hurdin. But
whither did Mrs. Yoric gel That's the ques
tion several are asking.
Abnor Scott lives nt 8240 Curtis street.
Ho is an engineer On the Union Pacific , and
is u brother of Mrs. Florence York. Ho op
posed the marriage with Hardin , and is very
much mortified by the strunge alliance of his
sister. Mr. Scott says that ho behove * his
sister went to an unclo's at Masterson , Iowa.
To that place , at least , he forwarded the
ticket that brought her to Denver , but the
report is alleged to huva como from Miss
Edith Scottt , sister of Mrs. York , that her
sister left her cousin's to board in the same
hotel that sheltered Hardln.
All of these events occurred between Oc
tober last , when Mr. Yoric died , and May 1.
About the latter date Mrs. York returned to
Denvor. She did not return to her old
homo nt 3031 Wclton Htrcot. For it must bo
said that Mrs. Yorli had not lived in poaeo
with all her neighbors. The reports of her
courtship und engagement had also become
current gossip among them , and the woman
decided to occupy different quarters. With
a portion of $0,000 , received as insurance
on the life of her deceased husband , she
purchased the little cottage ut U24i ! Curtis
street. But the widow-sweetheart xvas not
to bo left to her solitude in the Queen city.
Hardin followed her to this place , und with
great Jov Mrs. York received him. She
gave a party In honor of his arrival and , in
the presence of a few friends , while the
brilliancy of her diamond paled the liiiht of
the chnndcliar , announced John J. Hardln as
"my future husband. "
"Who is this manl" Inquired Mrs. Scott ,
"Why , Mr. Hurdtn. He's worth $75.000 , "
was thu reply.
"How do you know ! "
"Ho told mo all about himself. "
His word was as good to her as the cold
itself. All her friends importuned her cot
to marry the
MAXAOUH OF THP. IIKSI'ANOI.EI ) IlICYCt.CIlS ,
hut all to no avail.
"Then wait , " said Mrs. Scott , "until you
have known this man better. And then ,
poor Martin I How recently ho diod. "
"I am old enough to tano cure of myself.
John has told mo all nbout himself , "
Mrs. York refused to take udvico. The
subtle wiles of the showman had secured u
firm hold upon her affections and nothing
could shake off the Infatuation ,
On Juno 1'J last the wedding look pUieo.
The consummation of Iho event is another
illustration of the influence the wretch Har
din wielded over the woman. They had not
planned to bo married , Hardin had begun to
get scared , fearing that his doubtful inten
tions would become known. Ho was bound
for Australia with his bund of female bicy
clists , and if ho could but roach that conti
nent with his newly wedded brldo ho thought
ho would bo safe. Ugly rumors begun to
waft themselves around the neighborhood
where the ill-fated alliance was known und
"John Hardln has a wlfo living in Omaha
witli two little children , " was the startling
announcement that wont from liouso to
house. It cnmo to the cars of Mrs. York's
friends and finally was convoyed to that lady
herself. Mrs. York was greatly agitated over
the report , but
1IAIID1N SAID IT WAS A LID ,
and she bolievcd him. Hardln now began to
fool that ho would rest bettor If a large
stretch of country lay between him nnd Den
vor. On the Will of Juno ho called on his
"Florence , " said ho , "wo must bo married
to-night. I must leave Donvor. "
"Oh , John , it is so "
"Now or never , " remarked Hardln.
"Surely , John , surely you don't mijrtn that
yon would desert mol"ploaded Airs , york ,
"I mean tiiat ! uin go'ihg to tOavo Denver
and unless you marry uio to-night you will
never sue mo again , "
The deceiver had spoken and Mrs. York
consented with Iho servitude of a scared
child. The Rov. Charles H. Marshall , of
Trinity Memorial church , performed the
ceremony in the parlors of his private resi
dence. But fuw know the bonds were lo
bo scaled und thuru were but two witnesses
to the contract , u borrowing brother and his
heart-broken wifo. They had ploadud with
Florence to remain firm and wait , but the
advlco was thrown away.
Hurain und hit ) bndu loft Denver for the
wasi In company with the female bicyclers.
They were accompanied uv her little girl ,
four years of ago. Mr * . York hud had two
children , nnd onPTvns burled the satno
month Its fattier Avfti luld awny. But eight
months gone and WfWod to another man.
Did Mrs. York iWtfher first husband ! Tea
a neighbor she said she did not. Martin
York was an fjcMfcnt man In his family.
Ho helped to Mippbrt Mrs. York's brother
nnd sister , and when her mother was on her
last bed of slckncss.lio administered to her
with n tenderness ono would show lo his
wlfo or own mother.
"To know Mr. York wns to esteem him , "
Bald a neighbor to Sinews reporter.
"I do not love Mr , York nnd I
"nil ) NOT MAittir IIIH fen uwn , "
remarked the wlfp'-'ono day. She hnrt ix
queer wiiy of tolling.nil her troubles nnd prl-
vuto affairs to her 'acquaintances. "I was
engaged to bo married to another , whom I
loved ; n quarrel separated in nnd I married
Mr. York to splto my olhcr lover. Ah , yes ,
I have been sorry for It I"
"But , Mrs. York , how kind ho Is nnd so
regular ut homo. "
"Ho is kind , but t can never love htm. If
a man gives mo the money I don't cnro
whether he comes around or not. "
These remarks accredited to the unfortu
nate woman shed some light on her nnturo
and furnishes an explanation to a degree of
her reasons for linking her Ifo with Hardin.
He made her believe ho wus wealthy. At
the lime of the marriage Mrs. York owned
about IIO.O- , * worth of Denver real estate.
Hurdin probably married hur for that prop
It wns a great shock to the friends nnd
relatives of Mrs. York yesterday to read In
the NUWR thnt Hardin was a bigamist , that
his second marriage wns illegal nnd that
Mrs. Hnrdln I , , residing In Omaha , had
brought suit for divorce on the ground of
"It's terrible ! terrible I" they exclaimed ,
"but wo are not surprised. AVe expected
something awful lo come of it. "
"Poor Florence" wus the recipient of n
great deal of pity , but all thought it was her
own fault. She did not enter the last mar-
rlaco In Innocence. She was aware of all
thu facts in the case , but In the
ni.iN-iNis : np unii LOVE ,
If such It can bo called , she refused to In
vestigate. Three weeks ago Iho couple wns
In Salt Lake with the bicyclers. Their uoxt
stopping plnco is Portlnnd. They are now in
that city , most like. At any rate ihey have
left Suit Lake. When Hnrdln hears that
the ofllccrs uro after him It is thought ho
will hasten ut once to Australia. Some
think ho Intended never to return to this
' Do y ou thlnkMrs. York will relurn to
Denver ! " asked u News reporter of Mrs.
"Oh , no , " with a deep sigh , "she'll ' proba
bly remain with him , woman like , ns long ns
she can. "
Hardin will will have no difficulty in per
suading the woman that the legal proceed
ings are the result of a conspiracy.
Mrs. York has u father , step-mother ,
brother and sister living in Steamboat
THG I1ORSI2 OAKS WILL 'GO.

Mr. Frank Murphy was seen yesterday
evening , shortly utter his return home from
New Yorn , by u BIE : reporter , and in reply
to an inquiry regarding anticipated results
in the shave of more street railway Improve
ments , ho said :
"I went cast solely on private business ,
did not look after anything else , and know of
nothing to suy about slrect railway improve
It had been rumored that Mr. Murphy's
chief object In visiting Now York was the
placing of Omaha consolidated street rail-
xvuy bonds , but if that is a fact ho declined
to say what success , was met with.
"I might say to you , " ho continued after a
few moments hesitation , "that we will have
ton miles of cross lawn motor line in opera
tion by thu middle of September , and expect
shortly to supplant nearly all our horse cars
with that means of locomotion. "
Being questioned again ho stated that
their first system will c'xtcnd from Hanscom
park to u point neat * Fort Omaha. The track
running through 'Park avenue , Leav-
cnworlh Sixteenth Cuming and
Twenty-fourth streets is nearly ull
completed , poles an ) up for the wires , an
immense power house , located on Izard
street , is nearly finished , the machinery is
being placed , and a number of cars wore
shipped yesterday from the manufactory.
Inasmuch us it will ba the great pleasure
route , passing over none but paved streets
and through well built sections , they hoped
to have the line in operation by fair week ,
but some unavoidable delay has made it im
possible to get ready by that timo. Mr.
Murphv says that the feeling among Now
York bankers with whom he talked indi
cates easy times so far us money mat'crsnre
concerned , though ho thinks there is hardly
as mnch of the dross coming west seeking
investment us there wus last spring.

OTTAWA , Out. , August 111. Special [ Tolo-
iram to 'J in : BISI : . ] Sir John A. McDonald
lias grievously insulted thu French pcoplo of
Canada , and i.s now almost universally exe
crated by them. During the summer of 1887
Admiral Vignes. of the French Atlantic
squadron , visited Quebec and Montreal with
Ins flagship , La Minerva The admiral and
Ills ollli.'crs were lionized and the enthusiasm
with which they were greeted pointed with
unmistakable ovldonco to thn lingering love
for old France and the tri-color which still
trarncd in thu hearts of thu French Canadian
iieople , Tliu French ollleers and their com-
iiatriots on this side of the Atlantic met as
brothurs of one nationality and thu demon
strations assumed rather tlio role of a na
tional fete than a mere reception of oil leer *
of the French navy. Shortly alter the visit
if the La Minurvu thu British man-of-war
Tourmaline arrived at Montreal. There wus
no demonstration or manifestation of loyalty
toward -he liritisli flag
- tiuyond u quiet re
ception given by a fuw of the British speak
ing residents of tlio port to the oftlccis of the
Dritish ship. Any one who tiad ever doubted
the latent loyalty of the Frunch-Catiudlun
icopie to thu flag of old Franco must then
Imve had tnobo doubts dispelled.
Thufcu facts wore all laid before Sir Johu
A. McDonald , who had always counted for
i large support from tlie French Canadian
jleinent , and readily s suing the danger of ul-
owlng thcso demonstrations to continue ill
their wjrk of sowing thu seeds of dissunslon
mil strife umung the French of Canada , ho
requestud Secretary of State Cliunlcuu to luy
the matter before the British foreign ofllcu ,
.hut tliu facts might no communicated to the
Crunch government with the request that

French iinvv to French polls in Canada bo
Of this nothing was Known until u few

nlr.il Brown do Collision , now cnm-
naiidliig the French squadion in thu Atlan

snntatioim ma.lu by thu IJiiiiliilon govern-
nunt thu minister of foreign affairs hud re-
juestcd thu minister of inurinu to abstain
roni allowing ships of the Fruncli nuvy to
enter French ports in Canada.
Even thu agitation of the Jesuits estates bill
sinks Into insignificance in the face of thu ox-
citiimunt which has been aroused through this
disclosure. Sir John never expected thu story
to leak out , und thu facts would probably
icvtr have become public had tlio French
admiral not naked for un explanation. Ho
says , however , that ho , with his officers , will
shortly visit Montreal in u Huml-olllcl.il wuy ,
vhcn prob.uily ono of thu greatest demon
