oil roclt but ten feet the oil came to the top of

pany began to-day to manufacture into tow
this year's crop of hemp , and turned out as
the work of the Hrst day $100 worth of the
product. Tbo company bus 700 acres of the
crop , all of which will show a magnificent
yield. About 100 ucros Is now in a fit condi
tion lor manufacture , which is from n mouth
to six weeks aliciul of that in the principal
I = 1 lionip-growing districts of the country. Tbo
company is very highly pleased with the ex
porlments In the cultivation nnd manufac
ture of the product , which began last year.
Tbo Industry bids fair to become ono oi tbo
loading ones of this section. It pays to the
farmers who grow the plant an average of
about $15 an acre , with less care and hard
work than is required in raising corn. The
tow can bo turned out at a cost not to exceed
2 cents per pound , and can bo sold at 4. In
all probability the company will this year
add a twine factory to Its plant.

tin-Street O.ir Fieht.
The board of public works wns In session
yesterday morning in relation to applica
tions by the Motor and Omaha Street Rail
way companies , for permits to lay tracks on
Lowe avenue from Cuming to Hamilton , nnd
thence to the military road. Thcro was a
lively debate between the attorney. " , In which
Mr , W. I. ICIorstend. n member of the board ,
was severely critlo'sod by General Cowln ,
who practically asserted that Klerstcnd was
acting In behalf of the Omaha Street Rail
way company. In regard to this Mr , Kier-
Btcad snys :
"Tho only fair wnv to treat the pcoplo of
Orchard Hill nnd Walnut Hill is to give both
companies nn equal right on Lowe avenue
bctweoii Cuming and Hamilton streets ,
which will give them a choice of routes into
the city , eitner by way of Farnam or by the
present route down Hurt street. For in
stance , nt the present time , in order to pet to
the court bouse from Walnut Hill , ono Is
compelled to go an far east as Fourteenth
aud come back to Eighteenth street.
"I urn sure that If tins proposition was loft
to The pcoplo In those additions , tlioy would ,
nlno out of every ten. bo in favor of grantIng -
Ing this privilege to both companies. Since
my action in tbo board this afternoon the
consolidated people have informed uio that if
this request is granted they will ntonco pro
ceed to construct nn electric road tnrouith to
Hamilton by way of Fitrnum. I think if
they are satisfied with so small a portion of
the route they ask for , the motor pcoplo cer
tainly ought to bo , as they got an equal
privilege on those two blocks and nn ex
clusive privilege on the othcrtnreo miles.
"I have no property interest In that part
of the city and have no other fcohug in this
mutter than to give the pcoplo thn best pos
sible street car facilities. AH fur ns my being -
ing partial to either company is concerned I
certainly have no feeling whatever. I think
Dr. Mercer Is entitled to crcat credit for in
augurutihg a system of fast street car serv
ice. We have always been friendly , und
thrco years ago ho took an active part in my
nomination and election to the council mm
materially nsslstcd me , und I certainly would
do nothing to work un injustice to him. In
making my motion yesterday I considered
that I was presenting a proposition that
would bo entirely satisfactory to him. "

The directors of the Omaha Fair and Ex-

ast night. Yesterday was the last day of
his year's exhibition , and a hasty balancing
if the association's cash account put a small
iUm on the credit sldo of the page , nnd the
directors nro greatly pleased thereat.
The attendance during the week was somo-
lilng over fifty thousand people , aud while
ho expenses wore unusually heavy , tbo
directors hope to got out oven , at least. The
attraction yesterday was , of course , the
races. The exhibitors began early In the
day to remove their displays , and in the
afternoon tbo racers and fakirs hud undis
puted possession of the grounds. A very
Inrga number of the exhibits were removed
to Lincoln , whore they will bo shown at the
state fair , and most of the speed horses
that have been hero during .tho week will
take part in the speed contests at Lincoln
Thcro were two accidents in connection
with the breaking up of the fair. Early yes
terday morning a freight on the Bolt line
wns derailed at OaK Chatham and a car
containing O. O. Hoffncr's stable of Eng
lish shlro horses , wns thrown from the
truck. The horses were injured , but not
seriously. Yesterday afternoon , while load-
ng horses on a car billed for the state fair ,
George Corbor ; a hostler from Nebraska
City , was kicked by a stallion nnd sustained
n fractured arm. He was removed to St.

o to work at once nnd make u strong effort
to secure the location of the state fair in
Omaha for the next live years. As an initi
ative stop it is proposed 10 arrange for nn In
crease of the accommodations for the fair.
The scheme is to purchase the site now occu
pied by Fort Omaha and devote It to fair

some amount of scoring , the mare refusing
to come under the start except on a run.
After no less than thirteen scorings
Starter Wheeler sounded the word , and off
they went , with Black Diamond , Joe Davis
nnd Nellie V. abreast , Spartan a length be
hind , and Illinois Egbert two lengths In the
rear. Black Diamond forged'to the front at
the first quarter , with NellioiV. second , and
the rest trailing. This order of things con
tinued until the three-quarter polo was
reached , when old Joe Davis put on an extra
load of steam , nnd quickly pulled up nnd

tun fourth and Illinois Egbert last. Time
The horses eot off promptly in tbo second

bert fourth and Spurtuti lust. Time 2:27 : .
The third heat was beautifully contested
between Black Diamond , Joe Davis and
Nellie V. The Diamond , however , was
made out of too good stuff for the rest of the
gang , and once getting the van ho.was never
overtaken. Joe Davis strained every nerve
and fibre and pulled up to the black geld
ing's flanks twice. but couldn't do any
better. At the last ciuurter Nellie came up
on old Juo with a .whirl , giving him a grand
cliasu down the stretch for second place , but
failing to get there. Time 2:20. :

the music and examined the exhibits.
Settling tun Bills.
The executive commlttco of the Mer
chants' week association held a meeting at
the board of trade building last night and
paid a largo number ot bills.
Strong nrtrdniont In support of the generally -
ally accepted statement that this has been a
profitable week for Omaha Is found in the
patronage of the hotels. Since Wednesday
morning they have all been crowded , some
tiavlng as many us they could accommodate.
So far as sleeping facilities were concerned ,
people were turned away * , but they found
entertainment elsewhere. Inquiries among
the loading hotels show that their business
realized anticipation. Consequently every
landlord feels happy.
The Millard probably cared for more guests
than nny other hotel. In addition to the
regular rooms and bedding , Messrs. Market
& Swobo put up about two hundred cots In
such space ns could bo utilized , and Wednes
day , Thursday and Friday served meals to
an average of 600 persons at each meal ,
Klttridgo & Braluord , at the Paxton , en
joyed nearly ns largo n patronf.ge. Their
house hhs Dccn full all week , from SOO to 450
pcoplo takiug breakfast , dinner and supper
The Murray's rooming capacity is much
smaller than cither of these two hostierlos ,
but the Introduction of cots permitted Mr.
Slllnway to take ( n many extra coiners and
his tables supplied food to an average of COD
morning , noon nnd night. The Merchants
accommodated 300p eoplo ami Manager Lialch
nt the Barker put in u supply of cots , which
increased his accommodations to over 100. !
The Windsor accommodated nn equal num
ber. , . , i
In addition to these houses , the Cozzens ,
Canlleld , Derby. Globe , Planters and several
other still smaller places fed and sheltered
more than a thousand. <
The down town boarding houses also had
their , jshuro ot the patronage , while thp
varipus'rnstaurantB nnd lunch counters did a
thriving business. '
The rain ot Wednesday undoubtedly kept
a great many people at homn who otherwise
would have boon here , but tbo hotels , board
ing houses nnd restaurants never took in us

innrles nnd Convention.
Ilonublictin OnntrnI Committee.
The political campaign was turned loose
yesterday by n meeting , nt 0 o'clock , ot tbo
republican county central committee. The
fair , exposition nnd Merchants' week attrac
tions generally bad their effect on everybody
to certain extent , though quite nn enthusi
astic crowd of onico-scokors nnd party work
ers gathered In the Mlllard rotunda and of-
tlco to discuss thosltuation. Mike Leo , John
Groves , Jim-Alien , Joe Southard and other
candidates were on hand putting In their
respective oars , but nothing developed to in
dicate the situation. All agreed , though , that
from this time on the pot will bo kept boiling
in lively shape.
Chairman Coutant called the meeting to
order bofoVo n quorum had arrived , consequently
quently business was delayed nearly half an
liour , bar when they got to work the mem
bers very quickly disposed of what they had
to do and adjourned ?

D.m O'KccflV ' , George M. O'Brien nnd
Paul Namloroort were 'admitted to seats as
authorized proxies of John lloyc , M. P.
O'Brien and Louis Peterson , respectively.
Vacancies weru announced Irom the Fifth
tind Ninth wards , D. M. Srott , commltteo-
uian of the former , linvlng Umd , and Fr.ink
MeKonna , of the hitter. , tins moved to Wash
ington Territory. On motion of Jolm Unl
ace , Joseph Redman wan elected by acclama
tion to lill the Fifth ward vacancy.
Then occurred tbo only signlfleAiit incident
of the session. Mr. Benson moved that Dan
iel McGuckin be selected to succeed Mc-
Kcnna in the Ninth. Tills called forth
a quick response from Ervin , who placed F.
M. Bloomer In nomination. The vote was
taken by ballot , and McGuckcn' drew the
prize , receiving fourteen votes to Bloomer's
nine. This result was taken to bo u sllgtit
crushing of Ervin's ambitions.
After disposing of this matter , George M.
O'Brien moved that tno secretary bo in
structed to issue a call for the primaries to
bo held on the afternoon and evening of
October 4 , at which delegates to the county
convention , October 5 , will bo soleoted ; this
convention to place iti nomination candidates
for county treasurer , sheriff , clerk , register
of deeds , superintendent of publiu instruc
tion , surveyor , judge ot.tlio county court and
two commissioners ; also delegates to the
state convention , which meets at Hastings ,
October 8. It was carried without discus
sionand unanimous'y.iTs ' was aUo the follow
Resolved , That the representatives of
wards nnd precincts in the county covention
bo as follows : Eleven dolomites from each
ward In the clt"j eloven"fron : South Omaha
and live from each ot the county precincts.
Tills increased representation will give the
convention 1155 delegates.
C. S. Wiggins offered a resolution which
caused some disturbance , proposing to en
dorse Charles F. Bemdortl for superintend
ing architect of the now nostofllco and gov
ernment building. O'ICeelTo declared that it
was not the proper place to raise such a ques
tion , ntfd the committee sat down on Mr.
Wiggins with a dull thud.
Somebody then moved an adjournment ,
and the gutnorlng dispersed.
A few of tha candidates would rather have
had a later convention and shorter campaign
for the county nomliiiitlons , but the com
mittee seemed to think that it was useless to
incur a double expense.
Up to ttio present time William Coburn ,
Mike Leo aud M. O. Maul appear to bo as
pirants for sheriff among the republicans.
Some change may bo made In this , however ,
us the campaign progresses. It has been
whispered around that John Druxel , Maul's
democratic partner , has his eye on thu same
olllco , and If between them they uereo thut
ho should make the race , Maul will probab.'y '
switch and run for coroner. The contest for
Henry Bolln's seat as keeper of the money
bags lies between John Groves , deputy
treasurer , and George Hulmrod. Jim Allen
and Arthur Brisks are the entries In the
county clerk race , and it Is predicted thut
unless other aspirants come in bufuro the
booliH are closed , it will bo a nip nnd tuck
tight. Charley Howe , the surveyor .has no
opponent as ye1/ : neither has J , U. Bruuor ,
so far as hear from , for superintendent of
schools , and Herb Louvctt says that Dick
Berlin Is thu only candidate for register of
deeds. But Herb evidently Ins fallen behind -
hind , or don't propose to recognize J. B.
Southard , who has been in training for a
George M. O'Brien ' will bo a candidate for
justice of the peace.

ers at the last meeting but the matter was
overlooked , ,
When that portion of the minutes was
reached referring to Sheriff Coborn's bill

bring tlio matter before tbo courts. At the
last meeting of the board the question bad
been referred to the county attorney for an
opinion , tils reply was received , stating
that the Item concerning city prisoners

life-like impersonation of "Jano Evro. " Wo
first BOO her as the slighted , iniearod for and
hated girl heart-broken , and yet with prldo
'uul cour.iRO sufllclunt to resent In stinging
answer the taunts of her tormentors and the
Insults heaped upon her. She has ono frlond ,
an uncle , the only ono who spoke kind words
to her , and on the anniversary of his birth
day she paid a sobbing tribute to bis memory
by falling on her knees nnd beseeching his

library by her t.vr.inical aunt , who sends her
to an orphan nsyluin In charge of n cruel ,

sheep's clothing. Afterward we llnd her n
talented teacher , ns it aovornoss In n noble
man's family , where she Is n modal of pro
priety , never oversti-ppltiR the most rigid
tests. Lord Robertson sees her worth from
the beginning , and tries her by the most
rigid tests. Her baleful mint and cousin
appear upon thu scone , nnd Invidiously strive
to drive the poor orphan away from the only
homo where she had over found happiness.
Sne determined to go and again throw her
self upon the tender mercies of a cold world ,
but Lord Rochester at last declared his pent-
up love nnd her troubles arc thus ended. All
thc-to phases nro pjrtrayo.l with tliu most
bolutlful grace nnd that unaffected natural
ness which gives Charlotte Thompson such
electric power over the crowds that nightly
throng to wltnois her truly great and

success yesterday with u new drop curtain
painted by Frank Cox , who comes from Now
York , aud Is said to bo very sullied In his
profession ns a scuniu nnist. His work In
this instance certainly bears proof ol his cluv
crness. It 1s u great Improvement over tlio
old curtain in many ways , the most striking
changes being noted in the subject matte ,
nnd colorings. The picture represented Ma

itcrruniun sou , with rug od mountains bo

Light aud lively colors , with rich draper :
