his power through the superstitious belief of Ills people In the Masplans ,

"My body will perish , but in that stone to which E

all the Masplans , disappeared In the chasm.
Now Ilcrod , being troubled nt these words of Osiris , to which ho attributed
a fearful significance , and , as an effort to counteract the supposed power con
veyed to this stone by Osiris , ordered to bo built the Tcinplo of Per-

Hundreds of years after , when the Temple became a ruin , ( as it exists

According to oport by the Associated
Pi ess the Intornnlional Cignrmakers' union
Is not in a condition to bo desired by thu mem
bers. I'resjdent SU'osser's report made on
AVodnesday last is to tlio effect that employ
ment is gradually decieusmg. While there is
nu Increase forthoyenrlStS SU in the number
of cigars and cheroots manufactured that.in-
crcaso is much less than the increase of 18SO-
87. The astounding Information is promul
gated that In Now York City alone there
lias boon a decrease in union' manufactured
cigars nnd chorootsof 21,07.1,782 as compared
with the fiscal year previous. The order'
holds Its own ns legnrds membership , the
figures lioiug 10,001) , ) In round numbers.
iiegardlng the dociease In prgductlon one
of thu members of tlieOmulm union says : "In
thu llrst pluro foreign competition has much to
( lo with it. Tlio mucking public is divided into
"two classes , the wealthy who can afford an
expensive smoke and the middle and lower
classes who indulge In the cheaper grades ot
cigars. The former smoke n great deal
more than the latter as a matter of course.
Tlio cigars smoked oy thu former
uro Imported In a manufactured
BUUO nibtend of being sent hero in the shape
of raw material. They can bo manufac
tured much cheaper abroad than at homo ,
because labor is cheaper. If the duty on the
manufactured article was increased and
that on the raw material lowered , then the
fcradcs mentioned would bo manufactured in
this country instead of abroad. Tills would
Iiolp us some. The labor unions could mate
rially assist us If they would. They could
create a demand for iinlon-mndo cigars sim-
lily by going into places wliero they are not
kept nnd asking for them. I know of an in
stance where a dealer who at one tlmo re
fused positively tp handle union-made goods
now handles no other. Some of thu boys
noticed that all his cigars wjro of scab man
ufacture. Then they organized nnd wont
for him. Livery day three or four people in
n bunch would go in nnd ask for a cigar.
When ho would set up his box they would
hunt for thu union label , and not Imding It
would refuse to buy. Now ho only handles
union-made goods , uud says ho wauld'tit ' soil
any other ,
"As u rule , the second class saloons are
our best frlouds. They all null union made
cigars. The uway-up places do not. Or
course lliuir imported havunus uro not ,
neither are tlio domestics. Wo don't ask
thuui to forego Imported dgais , but If they
would hutullo uiuon-miuiudomestics it upuld
be it HI eat thing for us. 'I ho Ouvihu unions
ura helping us all they can and we apprcclalu
thnir efforts.
"Speaking of the union the annual meet Ing
of which Is uowln session in New York city ,
u now arrangement regarding representa
tion has boon made. Unions with a member
ship of 100 arc npw entitled to a delegate ,
tybcroas u membership of i.00 was formerly
required. "

Thu movement Is uurely a west
ern one and will , no doubt , bovigorouly
opposed by Chief Arthur's tupportors who
still adhere to his principle , "No entangling
ullancei with other trades. " Western men ,
however , who are opposed to bis ro election ,
trill advorata u rullllcutiou of the movement
and xvill urge that employes of other sys
tems take similar action. The failure of
the brotherhood , to carry its point on the
Chiuago , Burlington & Quincy will bo cited ,
nnd in all probability the action of the Union
Pacific men will be endorsed.
The various organizations in the federa
tion will act throueh an executive board
chosen from the mcmboisliin of each society.
Their action will be linal in all cases. Should
tlio section men have a grievance and they
arc , ns a rule , members of the 1C. of L. that
grievance will bo submitted to the executive
bourd , who will present it to the manage
ment for settlement. Arbitration will bo
the means of settlement. Then if the com
pany refuses to nrbitrato.concontruted action
will follow. At a signal every wheel
on the ontlro system stop. It is a powerful
federation. The general opinion is that the
annual meeting of encuiccrs will endorse
the action. V'rnnmii Is said to have a major
ity of the delegates and Yroman is a Union

When the consolidated lines have com
pleted tlio task of changing their road to an
electric line , the number of men employed
will bo nearlv doubled. While the number
of trains will not equal the slnglo cars now
in use It will equal nt least two-thirds ns
many. And instead of one man tno will bo
employed. At the power house n large force
will be required , while n gang of line men of
no mean proportions will bo kept constantly

W. M. Smith , president of the Omaha
Harbors' union , thinks it very strange that
the Omaha ton&orlal at lists do not take u
more lively interest in organization than
they nt present manifest , ilo claims that
tlio barbers' union Is supposed to meet semi
monthly , but that over two months have
nlapscd since the last session. The organ-
1/ors and leading men seem to bo losing in
terest , a. fact that ho ran not account for.
Over one-half or thu members are behind in
their duos and assessments , while the
executive committee seems to have elapsed
into a condition of dreamy idleness.
The task of unionizing rat shops Is prac
tically untouched and many other matters
which might have been attended to uro loft
without attention. Smith thinks the union
will go down unless sonio strenuous efforts
are made in its behalf ,
Another memborof thoiinlon acknowledged
that tlio society was on its last IO M , but as
sorted that mismanagement was the cause.
Instead of electing Journeymen officers , pro
prietors wore chosen , who wore at heart op
posed to the union , The latter tried to
make tlio society a social ono instead of one
organized for mutual benefit , Until a change
is made no reform may bo looked for , and
unless something is'donu the barbers' union
will Boon bo u thing of the past ,

The non-union men at Gibson , Miller &

The claim is set up that in the matter of

that there is nothing in it.

IMPOSTERS ON THE ROAD ,
How They Deceive the Iowa Farm
ers With Medical Remedies.
A BOGUS MEDICAL INSTITUTE.
Olllcero of tlio Law Placed Upon Tliolr
Traolc and a Howard Offered
For Tliolr Arrest nnd
Conviction.
B wnro of Them.
A dispatch was received hero yesterday ,
stating that parties , claiming to bo loading
physicians of a largo medical establishment
in this city , were trying to soil notes nt Ode-
bolt , la , , which they had obtained there from
farmers under the representation that they
were connected with the institution in ques
tion. They had printed matter , circulars ,
etc. , which wcro ID Imitation of thosq used
by the Omaha Medical and Surgical insti
tute , of this city , and which would lead the
unsuspecting to suppose that they had been
gotten up by that institution. Inquiry at the
institute , however , showed that the note-
sellers had no connection with the instltu- ,
tion. Tlio proprietor stated that ho had Ijocn
annoyed repeatedly by parties claiming to
hail from the Omaha Medical institute. Ho
accordingly telegraphed at once and notified
the police that ho had olTured a 'reward for
the arrest and conviction of parties claiming
to represent him. f /
Later dispatches from the city marshal of
Odobolt gave a clue to their Ideality. 4A rb-
portcr of TUB HUB , following the clue , un
earthed a number of their circulars , and dis
covered their licadquartois la this city. Tlio
former sot forth that they possessed a largo
infirmary , located at tno corner of Fifteenth
and Howard streets , In the Shcoly bleak ,
the lawyers , business men , nnd other occu
pants of which will learn for tlio first tlmo
through Tin : lieu that they reside in an in-
stitutlon of that kind. Tito circular also uro-
claims that they have a largo faculty of phy
sic-inns , accommodations for boarding pa
tients , ota , etc.
lu reality , they linvo simply a . couple of
cheaply furnished rooms , dosti'uto ' of ap
paratus and f nullities for doing medical busi
ness.
The names of the proprietors of this
alleged establishment us set forth in their
circular are H. F. McCoy and T. II. Ensor ,
M , D. Many complaints have rnuehod this
city before In regard to the operations of
such parties front their victims , scattered
throughout the country. A druggist on
Lc'tivenwonh and Seventeenth streets states
that tliuy formerly purchased medicines of
him , but us they failed to pay what they
owed , and caused him trouble by tneir nu
merous victims writing to him on account of
his labels bolng on their bottles , ho refused
to liavo anything more to do with them. The
expediency to which they hnvo now icsortcu
shows , In ; the estimation of thnsu who
Unow them , that they are undoubtedly pre
paring for u grand raid upon the farmers
of Iowa and Nebraska , taking advantage of
the well-known reputation and extensive
advertising of Omaha's only medical estab
lishment , and thus gulling persons living at
n ctistanco from tlio city. They are also
putting themselves in trim , It Is believed ,
for u term in the penitnntliiry , because by
representing themselves as having an insti
tution which they have not , or leading tlioir
patrons to believe- that they repreaeut a per
manent institution hero , they are obtaining
money under falsa protnnsos. Tlioy will un
doubtedly bo prosecuted , as it is understood
n largo number of farmers have already
combined for that purpose. When last heard
from they wcro at Odcbolt , la. , under the
watchful care of the city marshal.
The circular of this outllt is a brazen steal
from that of tlio Omaha Medical Institute in
both mutter and appearance , while on it is.

flooded these stoles with circulars setting
forth that Drs. Malla Howard and McMo-

are taking notes nnd selling them to the

circular further states that these people are
frauds , and that they have no right to rep
resent the Omaha Mcdia.il Institute , which
has no agents in Iowa and which Is the
only , medical instltuto m Omaha. The
circular further asserts that because of
these men the institute has bean compelled
to withdraw its representatives from that
stato. Lastly , the institute requests every
bank to telegraph when these people offer it
paper for sale so that the Institute in this
citv may aid in the detection of the fraud
and the protection of the' bank U3 well as of

The republicans of Lancaster county held
their pi imary election to-day. In the Third ,
Fifth and Sixth wards there was a red hot
light , and the factions fought as earnestly us
the parties do at the polls at the election
proper. Until this morning It was thought
that but/mo delegate ticket vyotild bo pre
sented in the Third ward. Owing , however ,
to the cast otjho , delegation put up at a cau
cus last ulght , which meant Maxoy Cobb for
treasurer and Toin Carr for sheriff , there
were a boat of rebels In camp
this morning , uud the friends of Burnham
and Griffith nqt , together , made up a ticket.
Inthe Fifth ward the friends
of lloxib and JMcCluy , both candidates for
sheriff- locked .hocus ; also Cobb aud Burn-
bum. , , The friends ofjthosocandidates con
tested every lnohx > f ground. In the Sixth
ward It woH Chtlrcbill for county clerk and
Hunger for "sheriff against Sam McClav ,
who is said 'to" 'bo' prominent In the race
for thort Mtor position. The result
of the coniest in these wards can
not bo determined at this tlmo. Consider
able feclifi'tj'wds manifested at three polling
places , an'd It Is , said that a stormy county
convention Is likely to occur. The conven
tion convenes on Monday ,
In the" < Hber wards and procmots the elec
tion passed pll quietly and good fooling pro-
vailed. Senator Hnymond led the fight
ngaihst'tho Cobb people In the Third ward.
Later The result of the primaries ad
vances Cobb stock for treasurer. Ho won
in the First , Second , Third and Fifth wards.
It IH thought , liowover , thntUiirnhnm's gains
in the country will overbalance what ho lost
in the city ,
Carr and McClay balance for shoilff.
Trompsen , too , will have some votes.
Churchill for county cleik was knocked out
In the bixth , his homo ward. Burnhnm's
friends uro still confident that ho will win
for county treasurer.
The Oooil Tlmo ACT.
A rjucstiorrof Interest was suggested to
TUB Bnc correspondent to day. A widow
lady who has a bon In the penitentiary , and
whoso term , deducting the benefits earned
by the good tlmo act , will expire in about ten
days , applied to the governor for a pardon.
Shu desired him to receive this executive
favor .so that ho micht be restored to his
civil and political rights. Tlio governor do-
cliiiod to interfere for this reason , holding
that the benefits derived from the good tlmo
act amounted to the ramu as a pardon nnd
restored the beneficiary to his full citizen-
shiu. Speaking of this a well known lawyer
said : "If this holding is correct , and at first
glance it looks to bo so , It will affect the citi
zenship of many cx-coiivlcts lu this state. "
Ollloor Pound UiiHpniided.
It scorns that the Internal commotions In
the police department grows more and moro
violent day by day , This morning Ofllcor
Pound , ono of thaoldcttincn connected with
the department , was seen In cltfzsn'H olothcs.
Ho was apjiroachoil by Tun HIB representa
tive and asked for the reason of such a con
dition of affairs. Ilo replied , "I will have to
refer you to headquarters. " Marshal Car
der was seen and ho said ;
"This is primary day and Pound Is oft ex
ercising hU prerogatives ns an American
citUen , . Tia | pressure , was HO great that I
bad Vo let him go to work at tha primaries.
I had to sot mv foot down hard or I wouldn't
have had nn officer on the force to-day. "
From another source that is considered
authentic it is learned that yesterday after
noon the marshal had accused Pound with
having said :
"The mayor is coming to his senses. Ho
has appointed Green night captain nnd if
Carder don't look out ho will got it in the
neck. "
Pound donlcd that ho had made such a re
mark and they separated. ThU morning
when Officer I'ound reported for duty Sor-
gca t Mullcr hnr.dfed him a note informing
him that ho was suspended until the return
of the mayor.
