It was ladles'day , and as a consequence
the ntlondanco was good.
The game , however , was a boro.
Hurt was In the box for the visitors , nnd
ho received a fearful lambasting. The boys
hit him Just when nnd where they pleased.
Sixteen hits with a total uf twenty-seven
bases , and eight bases on balls , Is Iho size
of his afternoon's achievement.
And Caplatn Mnciilhir said ho would beat
us. But Captain Mucullnr is a prevaricator
of the deepest dyo.
Willis opened up as Omaha's delivery end
of Iho ballory , nnd did fairly well , barring
his wlldnoss. Ho allowed the children from
Iowa's capital but four hits and struck out
Boven , Ho gave seven uf them bases ou
balls , however , und in the fifth Daddy

contest for his vacant sfent In congress IMS
already commcncod , Nu.uly oyory county
In the Second congressional district 1ms Its
own favoroa son , nnd the wires for the approaching
preaching campaign nro beinghitd thick nnd
fast. The list oT candidates embraces the
names of N. V. llurlnn , John M. Franco and
Judga Post , of York county ; J. W Danes ,
Judge Morris nnd Go.irgo II. Hastings , of
Siillna county ; Judge Norviil , o'f Seward ;

of Kcd Willow ; G. K. Chancy , of Webster ;
Smith Caldwull , of Nuckolls ; Judgu Gnslm ,
of Uarlan ; J. W. MeNinny , tf ) Wpbstor.
Tea mimes of some of the men 'above- men
tioned inny bo disposed of In a brief sen
tence. Unless the courao of political events
takes n sudden nnd altogether unexpected
turn , the names of Franco , Post , Duwcs ,
Morris , Juiisun , Caldwell , Dlnsuiore ,
Clinnoy , Gaslin nnd McNinny tnay bo wiped
from the slate nt onco. The real contest
will In nil probability bo a triangular ono ,
between Ilnrlun , of York , Hastings , of S.i-
llno , nnd Laws , of Feed Willow. All thrco
of these gontlotnen Imvo strong claims upon
the consideration of the pconlo of the dis
trict. For six years York" county has had a
c.iuilldnto for the congressional nominntlon.
In 1SS1 Franco was pushed to the front and
kept there until the Laird men demon
strated their strength. In 1SSO' Post
was selected to carry thn banner of
York Into the convention nnd ho , too , sue-
cuuibod to the inevitable. In 1SS8 , nothing
daunted by thn defeats of fernier campaigns ,
York entered the lists with another candi
date In the person of Judge Harlan ; but
Harlan withdrew on the eve of. the con
vention. Now that Laird is out of the way
Yori : county sees an opportunity and will do
her best to seize it. Hnrlan will undoubtedly
bo the first cholci ) . with Post as a conven
ient second.
Llctwccn George il. Hastings , of Saline
county , nnd the late Congressman Laird , the
warmest friendship existed. In the con
vention of ISbil Mr. Hustings was selected by
Mr. Luird as tomuorary chairman , nnd in
1S88 , to Hastings was entrusted the letter of
acceptation prepared by Mr. Laird in lieu
of the customary speech. There has long
been a tacit understanding between the
friends of the two men that when Mr. Laird
was content to decline further congressional
honors , Mr. Hastings was to bo the heir of
lil political estate. Now that death has In
tervened It remains to bo scon how strong
this bond of friendship was. Another point
whicti will bo urged in favor of Hastings is
the fact thill lust fall ho ueromptorily de
clined to bo a candidate for attorney general
and throw his entire strength to Lceso , the
people's favorite. This action of Mr. Hast
ings made him many friends over the dis
trict.
The western counties feel that they are
entitled to recognition , nnd they will come
into convention for Laws.
At present writing the situation Is rather
chaotic. H. Hostwiclr , chairman of the con
gressional central committee , has been in
Now York for sevot'al months and has not
yet returned. J. W. Stark , secretary of the
committee , will hardly call that body to
gether until ho hears from Mr. Bostwlck ,
who is expected homo every day. A great
deal depends , too , upon the decision of Pres
ident Harrisoix.in rosard to a special session
of congress. If congress is called in October
a special election will bo called. If not , the
.successor to Mr. Laird will undoubtedly be
chosen at the general election lu November.

DAKOTA Cur , Nob. , August 21. ( .Special
Telegram to THE BEE. ] Ono of the
greatest outrages which bos been perpe
trated as yet by the Covington authorities
nnd they are noted for the lack of Justice
with which they enforce law oven as they
interpret it was committed nt that place
lost evening by the incarceration in their
calaboose of sixteen men and thrco women ,
members of the Salvation Army , who were
on their way to their hall in South Sioux
City to hold n meeting1. As they were pass
ing through Covington they were arrested
by order of several of the members of the
board of trustees and placed in jail , consixt-
ing'of a steel cage with thrco cells. In ono of
the cells was a thief and : i drunken bum , the
women were placed in another , while the
sixteen men were placed in u cell 12 by 1C
feet and there remained until 10 o'clock
to-day. There was nothing between the cell
occupied by the woman and that occupied by
the men but Oars , which divided the apart
ments of the cuee. When the news of the
arrest was carried to South Sloax City sev
eral of the citizens of that place went to Cov
ington and ottered to glvo bond which was
good for $15.000 If required for their appear
ance , and asked for their release , and were
not only refused but were abused even to
blows and driven from the town. The ofli-
cers who arrested them and put them In the
cnlnbooao used language which men would
not be called upon to listen to. They were
tried this morning upon the churgo of a
breech of the peace In Covington. They
were all acquitted. Even Covinglrin people ,
who uun stand a great dual , condemn this
outrage. A lively time is expected.

to Tun Hii.lThere : : Is considerable ground
for the belief that Uati Uouvhlln , who lm
all along been regarded ns the man with thu
most backbone nmotig the rroiilu suspects ,
la ou the verge of confession. In addition
to the fact tlmt , the Uniirlsonmont tins told BO

canio so obvious that those who have dally
Intercourse with him bollovo that ho is bor
dering on Insanity. He Is nightly the victim
of terrible dreams that couso him to start up
from his sleep with oaths and sometimes
With Hhrioks upon his lips. In the daytlmo
ho Is moody and tacllurh , nnd spends most of
the tlmo alone In lilt cell. But oven nioro
Important mid slgulllcuutthan thl ? Is the fact
that on no loss thnn throe occasions did
he suddenly call his warden to his
cell door and toll him lo inform Stntos At
torney Longonechor that ho wanted to BOO
him. On nil these occ.iitious , however ,
Coughlln dimmed his mind and counter
manded hH order before the warder hud
tlmo to convey U to Mr. Lonireneckor.
"There Is no doubt thut Coughlln Is on I ho
point of inulung n clean breast of everything
and throwing himself upon the mercy of the
state , " said n gentleman who has been prom
inently identified with the prosecution.
" 1 lie doubt and juixioty of his precarious
condition Is proving too much lor him , and
the nttitudo of the states attorney , who has
loft him nlonu over smco his Imprisonment ,
and of whoso plans neither ho nor his coun
sel have been able to learn anything , has put
him In a condition of almost unbearable ap
prehension. "
But there is u nioro potent influence than
the sweat-box , or solitude , or mental agony ,
or even limit fear of tim scaffold ut work
upon Ooughlin's iron nerve and stony heart ,
nnd thut is the Influence of his wife. It Is
stated upon excellent authority th.vt Mrs.
Coughlin has for Homo tlmu been pleading
with her husbmd to make u full confession
go upon the stand ns u witness for the stnto
and thus'savo his neck from the noose. It-Is
said that tliu woman has told Couuhlln that
It is necuss.iry in oruer to HIIVO her life , as
well as his. that ho should take this course ,
and this , more than anything else , has con
tributed to break down thu clansman's nerve
nnd bring him within a measurable distance
of confession. Whether the stuto'H
attorney told Mrs. Coughlin to use
her influence with her husband ,
under a promise that If she succeeded ho
would bo given immunity , could not be as
certained to-day , for Mr. Loiiguueckrrofuse/d
to speak m regard to this point.
It is btlll believed that , whnn the case Is
called by the state on Monday next the do-
fmiso will appeal for n postponement until
next term on the ground of msulllciont prepa
ration. It Is also said that efforts are being
made to secure the services of prominent
eastern lawyers in behalf of some of the ac
cused men. Among those mentioned in this
connection are General Ben Butler , Senator
Brady , of New York , \V. Howe , of llowo &
Hummell . Kullurton nnd .
, ex-.ludgo cx-.ludgo
Curtis , nil of New York. Should any of these ,
practitioners bo induced to accept n retainer
in the case nt this late day , the appeal for n
postponement would bo based on valid
grounds , and would probably bo granted.
