The north court room of the county court
house was filled to overflowing yesterday
morning at the hour sot for opening of court ,
t was the day'cct for sentencing criminals
couvictcd this term , as well as for ruling on
ho motions.for now trials argued and sub
mitted during the past two days. A llttlo
ripple of excitement ran through the spccta-
, ors when the court announced that no now
rials would bo granted. In speaking of the
Urooka case ho stated that ho sat up Into
.Vcdncsday . night looking ever authorities
and examining tlio evidence , but hod not ,
been able to find anything that would loud
tiim to think that the defendant had not been
accorded a fair and impartial trial , which re
united In Ills conviction. Ho therefore re
fused to grant a new trial.
The same ruling was made In the chsoi of
State vs Mclntoah anil Stuto vs Feurhaukor.
When Uroolts wns called up for sentence ,
.nnd was asked the customary question
whether or not iiC had anything to siiy why
the sentence of the couit should not bo pro
nounced upon Iilm , ho coolly and uncon
cernedly replied that ho had not. and even
when the sentence that ' 'you ' bo taken to the
penitentiary nt Tort Madison and there con-
lined at hard labor for the remainder of your
llfo" fell upon his ears ho betrayed no fool
ing , but quietly tool' his scat , whllo his fol
low prisoners regarded him with looks of
mingled curiosity and wonder. The refusal
of the court to grant him u now trial was ap
In ruling upon the case Judge Macy stated
that whllo ho did not mean to crltlclso the
action of the jury , ho was ot the opinion that
miinler in the second dcgroo or manslaugh
ter would have been a verdict quite in ac
cordance with the evidence. Ho did not say
that the jury made n mistake , and said that
his opinion wa simply that of ono against
twelve , and it was quite possible that ho was
Colonel Dalloy. Hrootts' attornov. says that
he Is satlsilcd. He docs not want another
trial now. as ho would have to try It again
In November , when all the xvltnesie1 * would
bo here , and thinks that the situation is bet
ter for his client as It is. IIo will nopoal the
case , and has secured an order for the exten
sion of the cvidenco to this end , mid expresses -
presses the utmost confldonuo that the case
wiil bo reversed and sent back , which will
bring it up for trial again next year.
James Melntosh was called for and stepped
to the front to receive his sentence for ob
taining property under false pretenses.
After lecturing the pmonor quite severely
the court advised him to "mako up his mind
that when ho was released from the peni
tentiary ho would dissolve partnership with
whisky and become what some folks call a
cranky prohibitionist , cutting loose trom all
former associates. " Ho then sentenced him
to ono year at Fort .Madison.
W. II. Leonard , the alleged traveling man
who passed a lorgcd bank check at thol3cch-
tolo house in unymont for board , was given
fifteen months In the pen.
"Tho crime of which you have boon con
victed , " said the court , "may bo punished
very severely under the statutes. The limit
is fifteen years in the penitentiary. " After
delivering quito a lengthy lecture , the san-
tcnco was indicted as above stated.
"Bet your life , 1 thought I was going to get
it In the neck , " remarked Leonard a few mo
ments later , as the sheriff and his deputies
were taking the prisoners buck to jail.
"When the Judge said that the limit was fif
teen years , I just made up my miiul that ho
was going to cut it souaro in two la the
middle , and send mo up for just seven years
nnd a half. When he said fifteen months I
wanted to holler , hut I guess that's long
enough anyway. "
George Feurhanken was sentenced to two
years in the pen for receiving property stolen
from freight cars in the Northwestern yards.
His attorney , Colonel D. 15. Dailey , made an
earnest plea for a line and jail sentence , stat
ing that the prisoner's health was such that
ho could not live long on prison faro. The
court took a scrutinizing glnnca at Fourhan-
kou's 250 pounds of avoirdupois , as he sat in
the rear of his attorney , and evidently con
cluded that ho was not in danger of immedi
ate dissolution , for ho proceeded to impose
the sentence and fix the appeal bond at $1,000.
The prisoner's attorney gave notice of an ap
peal , and the necessary bond was illcd.
Sylvester Smith Eveland , who was found
guilty of obtaining money under falsa pre
tenses , by mortgaging property which did
not belong to him , was given ninety days in
the county jail.
This concluded the list of criminals to bo
sentenced , and the trial of the rape case
of State vs Omog was then resumed. Juror

The work of locating the now arc lights for
city lighting under the new contract is now
progressing as rapidly ns was expected. At
the meeting of the council Monday evening
it was decided that the council should meet
us a committee of the whole and go out
several evenings this week to look ever the
ground nnd determine whcro the now lights
shall bo located. U was thought that tlio
better plan would bo to devote ono evening
to each ward , and tha committee accordingly
started out Tuesday evening to look over the
Fourth ward , Tuo trip was not a complete
ouo , and the committee did not decide how
many lights would bo required there , or
where it would bo best to huvo thorn located.
It was thought best to remove the towers
on Broadway and place them in the suburbs.
It was decided that two could bo placed to
good advantage In the southern and western
part of the city , ono at the corner of Twenty.
first street and Fifth avouuo , and the ether
at the corner of Twenty-third direct and
Avenue II , The committee then came to
the conclusion that Fulrmount park would
bo a Una location for another tower , and dis
cussed tbo question of removing ono tower
to that place , provided the park commission
ers would agree to pay for the lights. It was
not tlion known , howoyor , what a kick tliero
would bo against moving any of the towers
from their present location.
"It begins to look us if wo would have to
lot tbo towera alone , and put uu Komo now
ones. " said Alderman Lac.v yesterday , "Just
us soon as wo begin to talk of moving any of
them the folks begin to kick , Thu folks la
the upper part of the city say that they
would rather have that tower ut tha corner
of 1'iercoand Frank streets thauany amount
of low lights . Tbo mayor and I looked over
the ground , uua found that twenty low
lleht In that locality would not do the work
of that tower with its four lights. There
nro not so many largo slmdo trees in that
end of the city , nnd the light from the tower
is thrown upon the streets Instead of on the
trro tops ai in noino other localities.
The citizens are greatly in favor of the tow
ers , nnd there will bo very decided opposi
tion to moving any of them. It may bo that
wo will have to pet two or three now towers ,
ns there Is no question but that they are the
things for the outskirts or thinly nettled
portions of the city. Wo wl'l ' have to put In
low Hunts where the towers fall to work
well on account of the shade. The business
streets will have to have a low light ovcr.v
block , nnd wo will extend them as far as
they will go. There is about eight weeks to
got things llxod up in , ns the present .con-
tract dooi not expire until the 14lh of De
People who nro owing us will confer a
great favor If they will settle their bills as
near the first as possible. We will hnvo to
have our collections promptly so ns tp start
up again , ns our loss from fire has bcon con
siderable. Any favor shown us now wo will
return when wo stnrt ngaih. Mr. Parks will

President. ! . S. McCormick and Secretary
E. O. Brandt , of the Omaha base ball asso
ciation , leave this morning for Minne
apolis , to attend Uio annual meeting of the
Western base ball association. '
As Tun Ur.c has mentioned on divers occa
sions , the meeting Is ono that will bo fraught
with much interest to western bnsa ball
patrons , nnd startling developments
are not improbable. The elec
tion of ofllccrs will bo part
of the business transacted , but not much
contention is anticipated 111 this matter , Mr.
McCormick Will bo re-elected president , and
Sam Morton , if he wants it , secretary mid
treasurer. Jim Hart , of the past season's
Bostons , and Quliin , of Milwaukee , are both
pulling for the position , but as neither Is as
desirable , all their cftorts will go for naught.
The most important feature of the meet
ing will bo the stupendous task of
making up next year's ' circuit. As
yet it is not definitely known
just what course DCS Moines nnd St. Joe will
pursue. They may both refuse to bn uncere
moniously "dumped , " and if the association
insists , may carry the matter into the courts.
Not the least doubt exists but that the effort
will bo made to oust thorn both , inasmuch as
Detroit , Toledo , Duluth and Oskosh are all
ntmlicmits for admission , and nny of these
four are highly preferable to cither of the
two first named.
A clearer understanding of the relations
between the Western association and the
National league nud American association is
another matter the western direct
ors will endeavor to get at. The
national agreement and all its com
plex phases will bo exhaustively dis
cussed and an apocal made to tlio committee
on arbitration for justice in the deal of Chicago
cage and Boston by which they claim pos
session of Omaha's star trio , Nichols , Naglo
and Coonoy. Little hope , however , is scon
glimmering through the foggy atmosphere in
this siiuplication for the Omaha club. They
have irrevocably lost at least two of these

found us on the plains beyond Larnmlo ,
somewhere near Lookout station , with tlio
mountains in the distance and Kilt mountain
standing boldly out with the clouds covering
the summit. For two hours and upwards
the tram moved on m its winding course ,
until ncarlng Fort Stcolo , wo loft the great
mountain behind , after a ride ol sovonty-flvo

distance seemed but nn hour's journey. Tao

in the pnst twenty years , which has elicited
universal astonishment at the growth of tlio
trnns-Missourl region. It fooms but
jcsterday when this thriving nnd
beautiful city was the homo of the pioneer
neer , the bravo mnu who was pushing his
way "into the unknown , " confident of the
successful issue of his Inbor and suffering
in the work of spanning the continent and
binding the cast and the west together for
ever , on the highway of the world , with
Omaha ns the lending city of n domain vast
and imperial in its resources. Hero dwelt
the desperado , "and Vlco walked the streets
with unblushing front. Hero , too , lived ut
the fort near by , that handsome- and ill-fated
soldier , CarlliiK , nnd that older soldier , a
white robed warrior , Ucv. Joseph Cook ,
aided , encouraged and sustained b.v another
gentle spirit , Hcv. Dr. Scott. These mon
were like beacon lights In the surrounding
spiritual darkness , nnd moro than ono homeless -

when they told of love nnd homo and
In that early day the church accommoda
tions of Cheyenne were small. The llttlo
school house served n three-fold purpose. It
was a school during the wocic , an Episcopal
church on Sunday morning and a Metho
dist church nt night. Uov. Mr.
Cook officiated in the morning
and the doctor in the evening. From that
modest structure sprung St. Mark's Epis
copal church , nnd the iMcthodist church of
Cheyenne. I know not if these good men
nro still alive. Pence to their gentle spirits
whorovcr they may bo.
Looking from the cur window ono could
iilmost see the old fmino building , whcro wo
had to sleep on the lloor or nnywhcro we
could , and the old tent with its elaborate
bill of faro of "roast beef" or "roast pork , "
where wo dined In the "dignity" of frco-born
American citizens.In > fact without the
"dignity" there was little else.
Out of the anrlcn'eaj , almost within a

the vigilantes caught and hung him , but a
short distance from the old Inline
warehouse near the depot. But
this has changed , and ouo looking at the
fine depot of the Union Pacific and the solid
business blocks near it would never suppose
such scones were ever enacted in this beauti
ful , prosperous city. Martin met a fearful
fate , but it purllled Cheyenne.
In crossing the plains patches of water
were visible nil the way whllo the daylight
lasted , nnd in ono''place n solitary nntolopo
was galloping away. ' This was all the game
I saw , with the exception of two rabbits ,

numerous herds of antelope and ellc. Llko

From lookout to Green Kiver we pass tlio

standing pools of water nnd mud
showed there had been a short time before.
In slandering this country , advnntaco has
bcon taken to induce settlements away from
the line of the Union Pacific , the alkali spots
along tha road giving force to the assertion.
It is only n few years since this charge wns
rung In Nebraska , ns far cast as Lexington
then Plum Crook that the country being
full of alkali streams , stock would drink the
waier and dlo. This has long since
BEEN LAuaiinu iiowy ,
and the existence of 433,000 horses , nnd 1-
000,000 head of cuttlo now In Nebraska proves
the charge a Ho. As for Wyoming , 103,000
horses , and 1,115,000 head of cattle , will soon
prove the charge equally baseless in this
territory. Another proof is the numerous
herds grazing in Wyoming along the Union
Paelllc , where the sago brush is thickest.
As for the country being n barren wilder
ness , the statement is also untrue. Because
there is nothing grown is not the fuult of
nature , but of the people. At convenient
distances are the Larnmlo , the Platte ,
Green river , Harris1 Fork , Bluck's
Fork , the Weber , Boar and Jordan
rivers , where the water can bo used
to fertilize the land. In addition to these are
numerous crooks. When man gets ruadj to
use these to reclaim the country , the soil
will yield abundantly. The largo brush.uow
moro abundant than ninctenn years ngo ,
demonstrates thosoil is capable of producing
something. Many claim the sngo brush can
bo replaced by alfalfa.
As to the soil , n good do.il in roctty and un
fit for uftrlcultural purposes. In ether places
it is gravelly , but the greater part of the
valleys along the road appear to bo of n
sandy character in nil probability similar
to what It would bo ii ) Nebraska without
water to make it productive. In the driest
places the courses of the streams nro dis
tinctly marked , winding , as they do in Iowa
and Nebraska , but at this season of the year
the streams nro dry.
How to reclaim this land is a mighty prob
lem , mighty , because it will bring mom
than half the United States into
use for ngicultural ( purposses. Some pro
pose nrtosian wells others irrigating ditches
and reservoirs for the storage of water , at an
oxpcndlturo of millions of dollars on the
part of the general'ovornmcnt. . But in
this Irrigation seems tin practicable , so far ns
the high lands nro co'ni'orned. They would
remain barren forever for want of water to
mnko thorn fertile.
In these days of steam is there not a sim
pler way ; that Is by
adjoining the principle streams , with pump
ing works nt convenient Intervals , to pump
the water Into pipes whoraver laid , nnd then
tapping thorn wherever water is wanted to
irrlgato the land. In short on the same plan
that water is supplied to consumers in the
cities. In this way lilgh nnd low lands can
bo cultivated ahko and reservoirs will bo a
useless appendage , r do not know the cost
of such a system , uuj. at nny rate it will not
equal thai of the ono proposed In the use of
reservoirs , etc. If oil can bo successfully
piped for hundreds of miles , why cannot the
same success bo Imd with water. Ono
nlpo can bo sufficient.Vor many miles of
land. Besides , the streams crossing the
Union Paulllo nro so frequent it seems that
every plcco of laud capable of production
between Lnramlo and Ogdcu can bo brought
under cultivation by the present and future
generations. In many places these streams
nro so numerous that pumping works will bo
unnecessary , as the undent system of irri
gating canals and ditches will bo sntUeient.
Fort Steele , now abandoned by the govern
ment. Is about seventy miles from tbo coal
oil regions of Wyoming. If souio company
will build u pipe line from that suction , and
erect pumping works to pumn tha oil to the
station and then refine it there , the problem
of getting the oil to market will bo solved , a
laruo town will spring up on the Union Pa-
cillo ut that point , and the Platte river will
furnUh abundance of water for other man-
fuacturing enterprises locating tliero.

Last winter , with its phonomonnlly mild wonthor , that enabled man to wear Spring nml Autumn Clothing during
hie rigors ot Dcoombor and .Immnry , loft on tlio haiuls ot irmmifnoturora , jobbers nml rotnllora nn immense qimnlHy
of winter goods. Mntiufnoturors made utiusunl preparations last year to meet the increasing demand that hail boon
treated by the several excessively severe winters that had preceded It , and the result was nn extraordinary overplus
of nil pradca of clothing. This season manufacturers were compelled to sell at prices far below these 11.x oil for last year.
In splto of this siicrllluo of all profits , they reached tlio season of 1839-00 with stocks but silently diminished , for the
reason that the bulk of last season's purchases remained In the hands of retailers throughout the country , who were
unable to buy now stocks. These who bought lightly a year ago were fortunate.
With the intention of building the largest and flnost building for a Clothing Emporium in the city , and stocking
it up with goods of this season's make , the oloso of last year found M. MAUOUS with a very light stock. From the
earliest data in the spring permitted by the weather until a few days ago. the builders have been at work on our now
pressed brick , pinto glass fronted building. Now it is completed , ami stands nro-omlnontly the flnoat business block
in Council Bluffs. It has boon stocked in nil departments with poods bought directly from the manufacturers during
the warm months this fall wlion prices had readied the foot of a panic slide. This is the ronson that I can sell a pair ol
pants for $3 that other dealers are compelled to ask $0 for , or a pair for 34 that others must got $7 to make a profit.
FOR AN OVERCOAT that will bo suitable for all dress occasions , that Is made in the latest style and of the best
material , that you will have to pay from $15 to $20 for at other places , wo will sell for $9. Those overcoats are of blue
and brown Chinchilla , strictly all wool , color guaranteed , and you can got flttud , for wo have all sizes , ! H to 44. Wo

810 , wo will lit you for from 95 to $7. Your tailor will charge you $15 for the same thing. Siioolal bargain line of Boys'
Knee I'M nt Suits , agns f > to 14 , from $1.60 up , miulo from pure all-wool Cheviots and guaranteed to give perfect satisfac

afford to pass them. Tlio standard of quality is maintained and the price , $1.76 to $0 , will surprise you.
