The action of Mayor Kohror In vetoing
the grading resolution recently passed by
the council , has awakened much discussion.
When It was llrst proposed to order this
tilling of streets in Doors' ' addition , the
mayor opposed the Idea. The council pro
ceeded to order nil the nventies and streets
brought up to grade. Now the f punky lltllo
mayor , who Is lu Missouri at the bedsldo of
n very sick brother , sends by mail a formal
veto of the resolution.
The reasons assigned by Mayor Kohrcr for
thus swinging his veto club are largely
bused on his Interest in thu working clnsae ? .
The streets which the council orders lllled
are In front ot property which is owned
mainly by pour men. The costof filling will
.ho great , and as It is to bo taxed to the
abutting property , it will prove a irroat hard
ship to many. It will also tend to hoot )
those lots from being Improved or occupied
for sovo ral years to come. In behalf of the
unfortunate laboring men and the struggling
property owners , ho therefore exercises his
veto power.
What will bo done with the votol Some
are unkind enough to suggest that Mavor
Kohror owns a large number of lots In Moors'
addition , and that ho has a personal preju
dice against the proposed urading , as well as
a-sympathetic gusli for the unfortunate
working classes. When the matter was llrst ,
brought up there was quite a gathering of
city statesmen about the map on the wall.
Thu mayor's .supposed lots we're checked ofE
and his opposition thus accounted for. Mayor
Kohror has not shown himself to bo thus scl-
llshly actuated in previous manauomont of
cltv concerns , so the insinuation now may bo
iloiW htm it crout injustice. Still it is being
used with such effect that It is more than
possible that the veto may bo overridden by
the council.

Mrs. Marshal Key has ordered the demoli
tion of the old herdick barn on Broadway ,
and will erect in its stead a two-story TiO-
foot brick , which will bo used for living
purposes , with the exception of the western
portion , whore Mr. Calif ! will locatu another
grocery. The old barn is one of the ancient
land marks of the city , and was associated
wl'h some very gigantic and very breezy
business schemes in the early days of Coun
cil Bluffs. It was the headquarters for W.
K. Vnughan's old herdicic line , that was the
prototype of our present electric street ear
system. It was the political headquarters
for Council Ulults and a good sized slice of
Nebraska. It is said its walls inclosed the
first little knot of plotters who subsequently
got power enough to remove ttio Nebraska
capital to Lincoln. And it was hero the llrst
scheme was hatched to bridge the Missouri
river. It is asserted that the gatherings in
the old b.irn had more to do witli the politi
cal destiny of Nebraska than any of the
legislators in the old tervitorlal capital at
Omaha.
The barn has been rebuilt aud repaired
many times , and has ucen the cause of pri
vate suits and suits against the city. Every
stick of timber in it is of historical interest ,
but nobody will regret to see it pulled down
to give place to a fine brick Olock ,

A local physician has been Investigating
the Brown-Sequard elixir treatment. Ho
has already experimented on two patients.
Ono is forty-seven .years of ago and has been
suffering with paralysis. The patient has
been taking other treatment from tlio doctor ,
but little Improvement w.is noticeable until
the elixir was added. TWO or three injec
tions have been given , and the patient IB able
to use the limb considerably.
The other patient was somewhat older ,
and has boon suffering with general debility.
This patient also shows improvement.
The physician is not prepared yet to either
fully accept or reject the theory. Ho is
rather inclined , however , to believe there is
some merit in it , hut does not believe that
the extravagant claims for it can bo sus
tained.

Those In charge of the Kirmoss deny em

they agreed to pay any part of thu expense
of costumes out of the general fund. All

the cost of the full costume would be i > . Jt
is true that somo'havo dropped out , but it
was because they learned all they cared to
Know , and then din not have honor enough
to stand by till the finish. In other cities it
is customary to charge for the teaching as
well as the costumes , but here the teaching
was made froo. Such in brief is the condi
tion of the Kir moss as viewed by the man

It is not surprising that all who started did
not remain through. It would bo almost Im

THIS KNOTTX SIOUX QUESTION.
It IB Believed the Indian Hltflitn Asto-
olntlon Is Mcctittlnsr.
Niomuui , Nob. , August 21 , [ Special to
Tun BBB. ] It is bollovod here that the re *
port sent out by the Interior douarttncnt-
that the Sioux bill must llrst go to congress
before thu president shall have the right to
proclaim It open to settlement , is the inside
work of the Indian Defense association.
This association is the ono which attempted
to defeat tlio bill , and It Is thought the at
tempt will bo made to drag It Into congress
and prolong Us opening ns much as possible.
Section a > of the Sioux bill says , "i'hnt
there is hereby apnroprlated out
of the money In the treasury
not otherwise appropriated , the sum of
$ 'J.'i,000 , which sum shall be expended under
the direction of the secretary of the Interior
for procuring the assent of the Sioux In
dians to this act , as provided in section 'JT ,
which Is for the payment of the Ked Cloud
band fcS,000 ! additional. Section 30 repeals
all nets Inconsistent with this.
It will also bo remembered that President
Cleveland signed this bill among the very
last : and while It might bo possible that n
"rider" slipped through , It Is very strange
that such men as Delegate GlfTord , of Da
kota , ami Colonel King , who were ns much
tlio fathers of the bill as Senator Dawes ,
have not discovered It ; and It is still stranger
that If any subsequent bill is In existence
thui some of the enterprising newspapers
which have hold that it must first LU to con
gress , have not published the bill. There Is
a "mix-up" In the Interior department dur
ing these dog days , and It needs some Sep
tember weather to unmuzzlo the crank who
presides over the Indian Defcnto association ,

A Female Swindlitr Takes In Wet-

MIDDLKTOWN' , N. Y. , August 31. [ Special
Telegram to TUB Bne.J The matrimonial
swindles of Sarah Huggell Hitchcock , now
in Jail with her husband nt Meadville , Pa. ,
have features of uncommon interest. She is
the daughter of respectable parents living
near Smotbport , Pa. When she was sixteen
years old she made a runaway match with a
gay young man , who first ill-treated and
then deserted her. She did not return to
the hum-drum home of lior parents , but cut
n dashing figure at the cost of a rich oil
operator. After a few years of this hfo , she
sought n husband by advertising for ono in a
so-called matrimonial newspaper. An idle ,
weak young man named Seymour Hitchcock ,
son of Matthew Hitchcock , a well-to-do
farmer of Franklin , N. Y. , saw the adver
tisement and opened correspondence with
the advertiser. The result was that ho mar
ried Miss Sarah Huggell , as she styled her-
selfand they lived upon thcbountyof the old
farmer. But Papa Hitchcock eventually cot
tired of the guy and extravagant daughter-
in-law and ho cut off the supplies. Then the
clever and unscrupulous woman took her
husband to Oncontn , and from that point
worked her neat swindle. She sent out ad-
veitisements to certain newspapers in Chicago
cage , Omaha , Kansas City and San Fran
cisco as follows ;
WANTKD A respectable young widow de
sires to correspond with a western gentle
man of means anil good social HtundliiK ulth n
vlawto matrimony. AdUro s Mrs. Samli llltoh-
cock , Oncontn , N. V.
The advertisement brought letters by the
score from all points in the west. To these
replies wern sent , ardent In phrase ami en
closing the likeness of a beautiful young
woman. Each deluded westerner was prevailed -
vailed upon to pay the fnro of his betrothed
to some point where they wore to meet and
marry. When Mr. and Mrs. Hitchcock
had secured from their victim the utmost
dollar they could hope to get , they would
"paralyze" hir.i bv mailing him a receipt for
hm lust remittance , signed ' 'Sarah Hitchcock ,
per tioymour Hitchcock. "
The scheme met with astonishing success.
The records of the Oacontu postoflicu t > how
that during the two months that the swindle
was operated there , Mrs. Hitchcock received
$400 In postal money orders , besides nineteen
registered letters containing unknown sums ,
together with packages of jewelry , etc.
When the United States postofllco oftluiuls at
Washington got after them for uslm ; the
mail for purposes of fraud , they fled from
Onconrn and repeated the swindle success
fully at Olean , N. Y. , Ashtnbula , O. , Erie ,
Pa. , and other points. At last they were ar
rested by a United States ofllclal at Mead-
ville. Pa. , and were lodged in jail ready for
trial.

The artful Mrs. Huggoll-Hitchcock is still
fruitful in resources. First she tried to get
her fathcr-ln-law to give ball for herself and

persuaded her weak and Infatuated husband
to make u confession declaring that
ho himself was the criminal Jn tlio case

The Story That MM. WIlHon , of Mnn-
vlllr > , Wyo. T.Vit Poison oil.
MANViu.n , Wyo. T. August 10. Editor
OMUU IUn : : Dour Sir 1 noticed In an
Issue of thu Till of Tun DAII/Y Hni : an article
concerning myself nnd my deceased wife ,
purporting to 00:110 : from n private corre
spondent in Mnnvlllo. The statements
therln are fnlso. The facts are those : My
wife , or MM , Wilson , ha boon troubled
with heart disease , or sinking spoils , for
some ye. M , and a nutnbor of times wo
thought she xvould die and had to send for
the nclghoors , as she would say she
thought she would smothor. The day be
fore her de.ith wo were out to visit a neigh
bor , Mr. B. F. Shipley , late of North Bend ,
Neb. , and in coming through Munville
stopped at , T < T. Brown's store and got soma
soap , and from there wont directly homo.
That night she died in ono ot tluno spells
which she so often had , ami my father nnd
brothers , having the matter in charge , said
she must be burled If possible the following
day , as the blood had settled around her
heart an J she had begun to mortify. This
statement can bo proved by nearly all the
citizens that live here , who have known us
for years. It was never thoutrht of by my
folks that my wife was poisoned , neither
was sho. The Idea oriulnntcd In the brain of
him who did the writing to Tin : But : , to in
jure myscif and others. It Is true that wo
were Intimate in the family of Mr. Shorter
nnd u dozen other families In Mnnvillo. I
thought that we had but ono enemy in the
country , and that is W. A. Brown , a son-in-
law of the deceased O. B. Selden. The rea
son this man , \V. A. Brown , is an enemy of
tniuo'I will state here. Before the trial of
Mr. Sheffer for the murder of Mr. Selden
was had , Mrs. Selden sent for mvsolf and
wife to como to the Valley House , as wo
were all In Douglas nt that time. Mrs. Sol-
den then and there tried to bribe uiy wife to
tell what was not true , She said to my w f s :
'If you will toll a atory to suit me in c > urt
you shall never want for anything , and when
we get home to Manville I have a nlco nres-
cnt for you' . " Mv wife told her she would
not toll a lie under oath for any person on
earth , consequently wo never heard the
story she wanted told and my wife never re
ceived the present Mrs. Soldon promised.
W. A. Brown and Mrs. Selden hold n mort-
cage against mo. Ho sent mo word that If I
did not tell the story they wanted told in
court he would foreclose the mortgnue and
tuko the property from me , and in this way
thought to compel mo to tell n falsehood , and
because I would apt lie for him ho has not
spoksn to me sinceUio trial , which was in
May , although I BOO him nearly every day.
Now , neither myself nor wife ever had the
promise of securing 1 cent , nor did wo ever
receive anything from Mr. J. A. bhefTcr to
testify in his behalf. All ho ever said to us
was that ho wanted us to tell the truth.
That was all ho wanted. It was remarked
by the jury and nearly everybody who heard
the trial that my ( wife's evidence was
stiaightforward and nearly exactly as Mrs.
Selden had given at the coroner's inpuest
some time over a year ago. Mrs. Selden did
not tell the facts before the jury as she did
before the coroner , ' nnd wanted Mrs. Wilson
also to tell something else. This Is the only
reason that I can see < thut such a slanderous
report is published. Nearly every word m
the article is a lie''from beginning to end.
