Our DUllnRiilrilictl annuls ,
Between 4 nnd 5 o'clock yesterday a'lur-
noon Broadway , from tbo Methodist church
to the Northwestern depot , presented an un
usually animated appearance for Sunday.
The cause was to be found in a small printed
handbill , which had boon scattered by thou
sands all ever tbo city announcing that the
Fail-American congress would leave Omaha
nt 4 o'clock on special motor twins for this
city. It was , ton minutes nf tor 5 o'clock
when thrco npcclil motor .rains , consisting
In nil of five cars , plldod rapidly up Hroad-
way. They wcro loaded with the entire
vUltlng dolcftatlon , composed of fifty-six
delegates to the international congress , nnd
seven newspaper correspondents who no-
companlcd tno party , nnd about soventy-flvo
of Omaha's representative business men ,
press representatives , city ofllclals nntl
ofllciuls of the electric motor company.
Mayor Hohror had charge of the party
durinp the stay In tills city. The visitors
did not Icavo the cars and were tniten up
Uronrtway to Frank , returned on Uroadway
to Pearl , down I'eurl to Sixteenth avenue ,
thcnco bock to Uroadway and Omaha. It
was the first ride that many of the party had
taken on an olcctrlo motor and was there
fore full of Interest for thorn.
Superintendent Koynoltls was on board
and had charso of the trains. Few stops
were made , except these necessary at the
end of the lines. There was no tlmo for a
drive about the cilv as hud been planned by
the committee , It being dark Ion ? before the
party reached Omaha on their return. The
distinguished visitors were again In the city
later In tlio cvenln ? , coming over to the
transfer to take the Hook fslond train for
the east , eolntr to ICookuk by way of
Dei Molncs. Much Interest was manifested
to sco the illstlngulshoil tourists , and the
trains attracted a great deal of attention.

The Moilct Churoli.
The nov. Dr. Cooley addressed the usual
largo audience at the First Baptist church at
tlio morning hour. "The Model Church"
was ttio subject of his sonnon , nnd ho bised
It upon the fifth chapter of Ephcsians , 2.1th
to 27 versos , "Even as Christ also loved His
church , anil guvu Himself for it , that he
might sanctify and clo.mso it with the wash
ing of water by the word ; that Ho might
present It to Hlmsolf n glorious church , not
having spot or wrlnlclc , or nny such thing ;
but that It should bo holy and without blem
The church referred to by the apostle was
tlio Ideal church , auch as Itwill bo when
Chrht has finished His work on It , and when
it Is ready for His final an 1 completed glory.
The moitol Is the ideal perfection , without
spot or blemish. Tlio church now is imper
fect , and no local church can bo taken as a
modol. Uiitll the perfect regeneration of
man the model Is unatuinublo , but it is well
to have it always before us , so tlmt wo c.m
bo ever aiming to attain Its absolute perfec
The requisites of the model church mo :
First She has nn entire regeneration of
membership. The established church of
England , Germany and Sweden say that
this is un impossibility , but It has been true
of the Baptists that , they tilm to have every
one of their members converted parsons.
Second She Is n holy churrh. The mem
bers live holy , goodly lives , adorning their
prntcssion and moulding their every day
conduct upon the example nnd teachings of
their low ly Master. They are n peculiar
Third She has a true biblical creed , being
contained in tlio biblo. The church of Ephe-
sus was commended for hating the deeds of
the Wicolnltanos , and the church of Perga-
mos condemned for fo'lowshippmg nnd al
lowing the same doctrines.
Fourth She is a united church. The
church of Corinth was deeply censured for
Its divisions and factious. Christ wants no
schism in His church.
Fifth She is an humble church , like that
of Philadelphia , not of Laodocia.
Sixth She is a liberal church , like that of
PhilllpDi , ready to make any sacrifice re
Seventh She is a loving church , having
the deepest sympathy for every member.
There is no pride of place or power , no ser
vility or condescension among members , no
sliamo for humble place , shabby clothes or
slender income. The members love each
other as brethren.
Eighth She is an Intelligent church , being
able to give a reason for her faith.
Ninth She is nn earnest church , abound
ing In work for the church and travailing in
birth for souls.
Tenth She has a diversity of gifts.
Eleventh She has a church prule. a "corps
do esprit. "
Twelfth- She * is careful of her word in all
matters , whether it ba oromiscs to tier mem
bers or financial obligations to the world.

Pnv Your Subscriptions I'romp My.
A mistake was made in stating yesterday
morning that the amounts subscribed by
citizens as a bonus to secure the now hotel
woio not duo until the building was com
pleted , as the agreement provides that the
sum of ? 20OOC shall bo paid by the 1st of
November , 18S9. Tor the ourposo of collect
ing this money the board of trade has ap
pointed throe committees of four members
each. Each committee is to work ono day ,
and it Is necessary to have the whole amount
by Wednesday night. The first committco
will begin work this morning , and it is desired -
sired that all subscribers pay promptly to
save any delay or inconvonlenco.
The site Is secured , the iirst $500 having
been paid Saturday evening. A ten dojs'
option on the property was secured and ttiis
option expired Saturday night. The erection
of n ? ! 200,000 hotel will irivo a decided Im
petus to building and ether Improvements
throughout the city and the prospect for the
Bluffs for the year lb'J3 ' is Indeed brilliant.
A now city hall to cost about $150,003 is
among tlio probabilities , and , in the opinion
of many , is as good as assured. Extensions
of the electric motor system , a new system
of perfect street lighting , cheaper gas and
electric light for private illuminating , a now
nubsldlary basin at the waterworks to glvo
the city the purest water possible ,
several thousand yards of now street paving ,
extensions of the water and gas malus and
sewers , the completion of tbo main sewer to
the Missouri river , a renovating of the police
force and the adoption of a 5 cent motor faro
between the sister cities , nro all looked for
consummation within the next twelve
months. The prospect Is such that even tlio
chronic kickers and proverbial growlers are
inordinately tickled , and express satisfaction
with themselves , with tbo city and with the
outsldo world.

"Passengers for Ouray change cars ! "
come the sonorous tones of the brakeman -
man on the Denver iSs Rio Grande rail
way , us the engine pulls up at the dusty
station of Moatroso , writes n corre
spondent of the Cincinnati Commorctnl
Gazette. Said passengers nro engaged
in watching the passing Salt Lake
train , containing the doleful-faced
travelers who had just delivered up
their jewels and small change to n band
of "hold-ups , " and nro not prepared for
a sudden arrival.
The Royal Gorge , Marshall Pass ,
Black Canyonetc. , Imvo all boon raved
ever in the course of the day , nnd tinder
the scorching rays of a dog-day's sun ,
scenery is losing its charm. These who
Imvo loft the city to escape heat , shako
their heads mournfully as they descend
to the platform of the sago-brush sta
tion and removed their wilted collars
preparatory to the sldw ride in prospect
on route to the much-talkod-of regions
of the irold bolt.
Before the crooning car wheels liavo
proceeded far it takes all the eloquence
of the proprietor of the "Tho Solid
Muldoon , " who chances to bo aboard , to
dissuadn the restless tourists from try
ing the pedestrian act across lots. . But
as the shadows fall and the mountains
approach , the breezes from above tim
ber line put sullleiont life in their
veins to awaken an interest
in the beauties of the Uncoin-
paghre valley , with its luxuriant
crop , historic ground , and modern
homes. Plenty of time is given for u
good view of tno adobe dwelling of the
old Indian chieftain , who so lately laid
claim to this productive land strip. The
remains of the "council house , " wiioro
the stormy treaty was made between
the Utcs and palefaces , is also in a good
state of preservation , and many remin
iscences of the ambitious Ute are btill
fresh in the memory of the \\hito bet
A few mbro revolutions of the croak
ing wheels atjd the captivating
bursts upon the vision like the smile of
a beautiful maiden at sight of her ex
pected lover. There , in the bosom of
the valley , encircled by a rock-linked
chain of gigantic guardsmen , lies the
hamlet of the mountains , shimmering
in the moonlight. Signal lights twinkle
from impossible heights. The white
sails of tlio minors'tents nro unfurled
upon stony surfaces in sloping ravines ,
between rocks of strata , and in every
conceivable lodging place , while the
work goes bravely on. The dull report
of giant powder and the classical strains
of the burro furnish ra-sic for the in
habitants by night nnd dny.
The traveler would fain rest in this
enchanting spot where cool breezes and
a comfortable hotel contribute to the
comforts of the wayfarer. Buttho stage-
driver lashes the air with his long whip
In nervous haste to boar him onward
and upward over the famous Alto Means
wagon road which ride is a'bit of aero
naut soaring not likely to bo forgotten.
The usual contention for toward seats
'takes place , until the dyspeptics are all
finally arranged fronting the horses. A
200-pound weight of the weaker sox ,
comfortably seated in the rear , fluently
narrates n few anecdotes , wull seasoned
witn mining slang , which proves her to
bo a naturalized daughter of the Rook
ies. The saying of "Snow Slide Char
ley" and "Timber Line Sam" were
glibly quoted , while the cases of
"Freeze Out , " "Monkeying with the
Drills , " "Mine Salting , " etc. , were
highly gratifying to the listener , who
is perhaps all-aglow with the mining
The fair compainion , however , proves
herself invaluable as a guide. Tlio first
stop along the highway is made ut the
regular stage-coach gallop , which car-
sies tlio loaded vehicle immediately be
yond the rock-bound suburbs of Ouray.
By the time the climb is fairly begun
the prancing steeds como down to a
good steady pull , nnd the ephynx
guarded citadel is loft far below.
Following closely the crooked path
way of the Unroinpagli'ro river , n point
is soon reached whore its gentle mur
mur comes up from the depths of its
rugged gorge , luring the passer-byinto
a forgotfulncss of all save the pictur
esque confusion of the surroundings.
Pungent hemlocks , tangled ferns , beds
of scarlet berries , carpets of pink boo
flower , with hero nnd there a snow-fed
columbine clamber ovoi jutted cliffs
and gray-green ledges , as if to assiit
those Jlinty giants in the concealment
of their buried treasure by enshrouding
them in this mantle of many colors.
What a pleasing variety of surprises
this water-course produces ! First a
Blonder shining thread ripples along
ever uneven surfaces.
Then gathering strength the stream
broadens and tumbles with foaming
speed among the smooth-washed
boarders , until some walled obstruction
sends it swirling around the solid base ,
scattering the in ilk-white spray into
the very face of the fo3 , with a grace
ful cascade leap , the rushing waters
bound ever some precipitous declivity
in a torrontino pour , which hurries
thorn onward to nourish the thirsty
valleys for the benefit of man and
boast. But the wonder of this journey
is the road way , which is literally
about midway between earth and sky.
Perched upon this aortal shelf , ono
naturally looks about. Backward
lies the narrow lodge hloroglyphed
with wheel ruts and hoof tracks. Cast
ing the eye downward hundreds of feet
an abrupt invitation to suicide is ox-
tended. Glancing aloft , heavy-browed
monsters of gnmltoand sandstone frown
solemnly from their majestic heights ;
while forward there is nothing in sight
that would indicate a passage way out
of this heart of stone. And yet the In
clination is to linger upon this Giants'
Causeway , or gigantic coach way , and
quaff the exhilarating nectar from n a-
turo's brimming cup. Halting upon a
rustle bridge , which spans a gaping
chasm , the obliging driver reveals the
very gem of the route. A voluminous
cataract plunges with a deafening roar
into n deep-lying basin beneath. Ad
miration and adjectives nro lost in the
Ningraphlo pour of the beautiful
waters. Blooming rainbows nro said to
hover near the spray , but not to-day ,
however , for the eun lb chary of its ro-
lloctiona nnd imagination in roposo.
"Up yonder to the right is 'the Boll of
the West , ' and that slide is whore she
shoots down her timbers. Over there is
the 'Old Trout' a powerful good mine ,
and payln' big. " comes the chest-toned
information of the mountain maiden as
mine after mine Is told off. The senti
ment Is destroyed' Kw the moment. A
wide expanse of washed stones nnd
fallen timber Indicates the ravaging
track of the snow-slldo , while at the
very brink of the stream hard crusts of
snow nro still lingering as a mark of
the destroyer. llo\y little the mysteri
ous verse maker know of his work when
ho conceived the stanza of "Beautiful
snow ; it can do nothing wrong. "
All too POOH the summit of the drive
is reached nnd the road moves out into
the grassy fiat , dotted with unfnthom-
nblo Inkolots no larger than a mill-
pond. Skirting the edge of this green
tufted park , the buby little mining town
of JroDlon is discovered very nonr at
hand. The smell of now pine boards , of
which the buildings are constructednnd
the bogrlmmod faces of the men fresh
from the tunnel or shaft , moving about
the promises , show the unmistakable
outlines of a live mining camp. The
arrival of the stage falls to excite any
particular attention save with those where
ro expecting bolts , rivets or ether
small irons necessary to keep the nm-
chinory in tunningordor. Thispoint ! s

Looking up toward Rod mountain a

brilliant coloring smart little engines
can bo scon totorlng along at a sur

the stage route by the same author.
"All aboard" is sounded nnd a load of
passengers "of which I tun whom"
nro safely tucked away in the little car
that passes from Iron ton to Sllvorton.
Again wo are climbing skyward , but

iron horse. Tiers of track lay above

Suddenly the engine faces about and
wo find ourselves riding backwards
but only for a short tlmo. By some
magical stroke the smokestack is in Its
original position. And so wo goon ,
backing and forwarding , like the
dances in a country cotillion , until the
now houses In the little camp are well
The snino mountain attractions , with
nn addition of colored stone nnd a
greater variety of wild llowors , greet
the cyo. Streamlets , cascades , glisten
ing forests , wondrous formations and
glorious fresh air are the charms of this
voyage. In passing
the buildings nro so numerous it can
easily bo mistaken for a little city. This
mine is the most celebrated in this lo
cality. A largo force of men are em
ployed , and rich yields pnss daily from
its caverns. During Uio circuitous
climb the train stops at several wayside
stations that are quite a surprise to the
traveler. Why , what is this ? A band of
professionals nro boarding the train. A
theatrical troupei * Yes. And they toll
us they have lound footlights enough
upon this lofty psrch to got behind and
draw an nudioiico.nnd a very creditable
ono at that. This is "life in the fur
west" that oven Denver may stare at.
With a sudden Hash of speed wo are
brought down from 'our elevated posi
tion , and the bravo little engine steams
into the Animas valley and lands its
precious load at Silverton. Tnis rail
way terminus is the
and for this reason the most unpopular
abiding place. The hotel which ono
of our party dubbed the "After
Thought' ' was evidently intended for
a warehouse ; consequently not calcu
lated to contribute to iho comfort of
Ono would naturally conclude from
the intense mining interest manifested
hero just now ( and with good cause )
that the city is entitled to a genuine
boom , but the excitement is confined
strictly to mining. "Shafts , " "slopes , "
"mill runs , " "levels , " "ore on the
dump , " etc. , are the scraps of conver
sation that como to the car. convincing
the visitor that the nil-absorbing con
versation pertains to the "treasure
trovo" on the adjoining heights , and
unless ho is fortuimto enough to possess
an interest in ono of tlioso perforations
ho fools like a beggar among princes.
The main street of Silverton is prin
cipally occupied by saloons , and , as the
hotel is confronted by eight of these
haunts in the opposite block , tlio guest
will in a short titno become familiar
with the ordinary lifo of the minor.
Tlio location of this city was well
chosen. A long stretch of land slopes
gracefully down from the foot hills to
the river , with plenty of space for the
real estate dealer to thrive upon should
the tide of immigration drift in this di
is the most prosperous mining property
in the San Juan. It is owned by eastern
capitalists , and has paid Us way from
grassroots down to crock bottom. Being
in the immediate neighborhood of S
it , is very accessible , and our party gra
ciously nocoptodan invitation to explore
its vast treasures.
Costumed in rubber coats , brogans
and sperm , the torchlight procession
takes up tlio line of march at the mouth
of the main tunnel , which loads 2,200
feet into the bosom of the mountain be
fore the vein was reached. Hero the
tunnel is crossed by another substan
tially timbered aperture running 000
feet east and west. Tracing the vein ,
which can easily bo discerned through
the timbers by the light of a candle , wo
wander onward'over a running stream ,
stopping often to small up against the
siilo of the tunnel to give passage way
to the heavy cars'of ore tlmt are con
tinually moving in and out ever the
double-tracked tramway. Now nnd
then our guide calls upward for a stopo
to bo opened , and with the flatth of his
torch overhead the workings above the
voln are exposed , where quantities of
precious metal in the crude is fast giving
way to nick and drill. Occasionally a
heavy thud from a distant discharge of
dynamite fairly shakes the solid sur
roundings , and wo mnilo grimly. Fin
ally the click-click of the workmen's
strokes toll us wo are approaching ono
end of tlio tunnel'whore ' a fine sight of
the clearly defined vein is to bo ob
tained. A momentary throb of the wild
excitement that thrills in the breast of
the minor , as ho' eagerly watches the
development of each blast , was experi
enced by the writer , Thord is surely
something nwo-inspiring in standing
face to face with tljoso earthly deposits
which are the roul lovers of the uni
verse. It is lilco unearthing the tomb's
antiquities nnd fine rod relics of the
Pharaohs. And I'dbubt ' if tlio success

TrnpplncrVllil Horses.
J , G. Rich , of Bethel , Mo. , a veteran
trapper , is engaged in the novel busi
ness of catching wild horses to ship to
sportsmen who wish to block game pro-
Last winter , with Its phenomenally inllcl woalhor , that enabled men to wear Spring nnd Autumn -Clothing during
the rigors of December nnd January , loft on the hnmls of ninnufactui'ore ' , jobbers and retailers an Immense miantlty
of win tor goods. Manufacturers made unusual preparations lust year to moot the increasing demand that had boon
created by the several excessively severe winters that had preceded It , nnd the result was nu extraordinary overplus
of nil grades of clothing. This season manufacturers wore coin polled to sell at prices far below those llxoil for last year ,
In splto of this sacrltlco of nil profits , they reached the season of 1839-nO with stocks but sllfflitly diminished , for the
reason that the bulk of last season's purchases remained In the hands of retailers throughout the country , who were
unnblo to buy now stocUs. Those who bought lightly a year ago were fortunate.
With the intention of. building the largest nnd llnost building for n. Clothing Emporium In the city , and Btochtnrf
It up with goods of tills season's make , the close of last year found M. MAUUUS with n very light stock. From the
earliest date in the spring permitted , by the weather until n. few days ago , the builders Imvo boon at work on our now
pressed brick , plato glass fronted building. Now it Is comutotod , ami stands nro-oinlnontly the ilnost business block
in Council UlulTs , It has boon slocked In all departments with poods bought directly from the manufacturers during
the warm months this fall when prices had roacncd the foot of a panic slide. This is the reason that I can sell u pair of
pants for $3 that other donlors are compelled to ask $0 for , or n pair for $4 that others must got $7 to make a wolU.

A Jovial Porker. *
A few days ago n , largo hog belonging
to LeRoy Hardy , of Stark , Ga. , while
the family wcro all out of the house ,
wont into the house , and after climbing
upon a fcathor bed proceeded to tear
tlio bed and clothing into doll rags.
His hpgstiip thought ho had found u
beautiful play house , and in his delight
and playfulness tore things up gener
ally. When the inmates of the house
came in the floors wcro literally cov
ered with feathers , and the festive
brute ran from the house looking more
like ono of the feathered tribe than a
fat porker.

Two mild-oyod , pink-nosed , bawling
calves , the property of W. J. Smith , are
creating considerable of a sensation
among the curious people of South
Minneapolis. The calves are twins ,
about thrco months old , and they have
only six logs between them. One of the
creatures is without a fore log and the
other is minus a hind leg , but they are
pretty little atiimals and Imp about as
brisklv as you please , apparently not
understanding that nature has cheated
thorn out of ono of the legs tlmt are the
duo of every well-regulated calf.
