Secretaries Gnrbor nnd Oilchrlst under th
resolution adopted by the board wherein th

Cldcntnlly n report was submitted with rcfot
cnco to the complaint of Q. O. Barnum vs th
Union Pnclllo railway company conccrnln ,
Ibo rate on shipments of Hvo stock fret
Columbus to South Omaha. The reportglvoi
below was submitted by Secretary Onrbcr :
U1 The complaint , In substance , is of the rnt
Of transportation of live stock from Columbu
fo South Omaha.
Tlio farts nro ns follows : The respondent1 !
rate for the transportation of Hvo cattle am
bogs from Columbus to South Omaha la W
per thirty-foot car , other lengths taking flxci
percentages of that rato. The distance fron
Columbus to South Omalm by the railroad ol
the defendant company Is approximated
ninety-two miles. The rate of shipments o ;
live cattle from Columbus to Chicago by tin
i.ino of the defendant and Its Connections was
fit the time of the bringing of this complaint
Wfli cents per hundred pounds , subject to i
minimum charge of 13.18 per car. This rnt <
is the result of n war on Hvo stock rates be
twcen competitive lines carrying the live
Block ti-nMlo from lower Missouri river points
, _ to Chicago , the results of that conflict belnt
to rcduco the rate from Kansas City to Chicago
> cage from 25 cents per hundred pounds to 1JW !
7r ccjits by u succession of changes.
f , Tlio prevailing rates to South Omaha or
Jive stock from stations within competitive
distances of Columbus nro as follows : Schuy
Icr , about sixteen miles cast of Columbus or
the Union Pacific , $23 per car ; Beaten , hall
way between Schuy lor nnd Columbus , $20 ,
Duncan nnd Gardner , eight and fourteen
tnllos respectively west of Columbus on
Unloii Pacific , & < J each ; Oconce , Plutto Center
tor , Burrows , Monroe , Matson and Genoa
stations north nnd west of Columbus on tin
Rcpubllcim Valley branch of the Union Pa
cllic , the rates are $29 , the same as nt Colum-
bus. While ) Ucllwood and David City , south-
past of Columbus on the Burlington road ( the
last mured city is u competitive point be
tween the Union Pacific , the Elkhom and
tlio Bmlhigton ) , the rates nro $20 nud § J5 re
spectively. Columbus Is n main line station
of the Union Pacific. Its situation entitles It
to as low if not lower rates than are made
from stations further distant and located on
branch lines of costlier trafllo service.
Your secretaries Hud that n rate of 29 per
tar. standard length , on shipments of live
cnttlo and hogs , from Columbus to South
Omiihii as compared with the rates prevailing
from stations located in competitive territory
With Columbus , is unlust nnd unreasonable
nnd nn net of discrimination against shippers
at Columbus.
* The carrying of live stock to market is pe
culiar in itself. The character of the service
is of greater proportionate consideration than
the charges for the sumo. The smallest
limit In time of transit Is of the greatest im
portance to shippers. An unnecessary delay
of an hour or two results in n shrinkage in
Weight for which a few dollars loss In the
freight charges Is no adequate compensation.
And yet It Is undoubtedly true that the rates
generally on Hvo stock mo lower in view of
the service performed , nnd risks assumed in
transit by the carriers than on any other
trafllc. The rate shown nro not to the
road. From the rate Is deducted 75 cents
whenever n shipper beds the car ; $1.50 Is
paid the stock yards company for hauling
Iho far to the pens und for unloading the
It is the conclusion of the secretaries thnt
$25 per ear , htandard length , is a reasonable
rate for shipments of Hvo cattle and hogs
from Columbus to South Omnlm ; other sta
tions within the territory adjacent to Colum
bus to bo adjusted In conformity therewith
ppon principles of equity nnd Justice.

The 1'aiilcy Vault Agent Docs No
Answer the Charge of Bribery.
Itvn3 nntlclpatcd , with u great deal o
anxiety on the part of county officials generally
ally as well as many contractors , that tin
trial of Clmrlcs L. Wundt , charged wltl
bribery in the Pauloy vault job , would com
mcnco In the district court yesterday morning
Thcro were many spectators present whc
had evidently como for the solo purpose o
listening to the caso.
Every ono concerned In the enso was pros
cnt with n noticeable oxception. The excep
tion was Charles L. Wundt.
It will bo remembered thnt Wundt was in
dieted by the last grand jury for attempting
to brlbo County Commissioner O'ICcclTo in
connection with the contracts for the vaults
in the courthouse.
When the indictment was returned Wundl
came forward nnd presented C. W. Hamilton ,
president of tlio United States National bunk
us his surety on the $1COO bond , llxed by the
court. Attho'cndof lost term of court Mr.
Mahoncy informed General Cowin , counsel
for Wundt , that If ho would agree to have
his client on hand for trial this tunn ho would
not require the formal renewal of the old
bond , as Is customary when n cnso of this
kind is carried over from ono torni to another.
Mr. Mahoney says that General Cowiu agreed
to tills. Lost week the latter was notified
that the case would como up yesterday ,
but for some reason the gcueral failed to have
his client on hand.
Mr. Mnhonoy says ho will proceed against
Mr. Hamilton If Wundt is not Immediately
The worst that could befall Wundt In case
of conviction would bo simply a line of $500.
Judge Clurkson made nn order fixing the
bond ot J. II. Clnmpltt at $1,000. It was done
at the request of prisoner's counsel. Before
making the entry the court celled upon Mr.
Mahonny for his opinion in the cuso , the
point being that the lower court had llxcd the
bond at Slr > ( )0. ) Mr. Muhonoy explained how
Chunpltt had boon brought back from Balti
more after running off while under a $1,500
bond , but nddcd that ho thought a bond for
$1,000 , if a good ono , would bo Just as likely to
hold him as ono for WOO moro. Counsel for
prisoner said that his client had , in running
away , acted upon the ndvico of tlioso who
were then , but uro not now , his f rlouds.
The first count in the information against
Wm. A. O'Lcary ' , the Council Bluffs hnck-

attorney , nnd ho will bo tiled simply for lar

Judge Doano is still holding court in the
equity court room , nnd vestcrday took up the
case of Mrs. A. M. Lewis against D. C. and
William Patterson. Mrs. Lewis seeks
to recover the title to her homo in
the northwestern part of tbo city , In
Hagan's addition , alleging that n deed
to the property was obtained by the Patter
sons by fraud. Mrs. Lewis was put upon the
stand yesterday nnd testified that the Patter
son brothers had induced her to trade her
Omaha property for borne lots in San DIego ,
Cnl. , anil persuaded her to sign n paper which
was represented to bo n description of the
property , but which afterwards turned out to
bo n warranty deed for the Omaha property
Lo Patterson. She was to have received u
icrtaln sum ot money , by the terms of the
iSTOomcnt , but nothing moro was said to her
nbout the matter und Patterson sold the prop-
srty to a third party. At this time Patterson
was keeping company with Mrs. Lewis'
[ laughter , according to Mrs. Lewis' testi
mony , and promised to deed the property to
the daughter if she-would marry him.

A Fall Account of tbo Oolcstbl Vi
itor of Last May.
An Annlyfllf ) of the Curious Hotly
1'licnomcnn Accompanying Itn Ap
licnraiioe Oilier FnmniiR Meteors
and Their Sclriitlflo Value.
Within the last fifteen years thor
hnvo boon four motcorio showora In th
atiito of Iowa. Two of these were nmon
the most brllliiuit of modern times. On
of the meteors foil nt 12:20 : o'clock on th
night of February 12 , 1875 ; the othc
fell about 7 o'clock in the evening c
May 2 last. The meteor could not ha\
been seen from any other point bctwcc
Dos Molnos and St. Paul. As it move
rapidly through the atmosphere It pr <
dtiecd a variety of sounds , non
of which were nt nil conduciv
to the mental comfort of thos
not learned in motcorio loro. Th
noises were of u rolling , rumbling' an
detonating nature , and of such fcai
ful intensity that they shook th
houses as if they wore moved by a
earthquake. The heavenly body ox
plodou when about ton miles from th
earth with a frightful sound and seal
torcd meteorites weighing from one
quarter of an ounce to sixty-six pound
on a Held three uillos long and ono inili
While the motcorio field waa in i
thickly settled part of Towa county noiv
of the stones are known to luivo struel
either house , man or beast , says the St
Louis Republican. If unythliif
or anyone had boon struct
it would undoubtedly have boor
known. Meteorites fall with sucl
force that one an inch square would kil
any man , and almost any beast won
they struck by it. There are not , however
over , any well authenticated cases o
death , from such n cause in this country
and there are but two cases recorded any
whore. Ono of these happened Jin 105-1
near Milan , when a Franciscan monli
was killed by a small meteorite ; and tin
other occurred July 2-1 , 1700. near Bordeaux
doaux , where a stone fifteen in diametci
fell into a hut , killing a herdsman and a
bullock. But the Damocles' record of n
meteoric stone is constantly suspended
over our heads. But this should
frighten no ono , as only ono person ii :
many hundred millions como to to tin un
timely end in this singular manner.
Notwithstanding the number of meteors
seen in space , very few of them strike the
mirth. Those that do not , go back in
space. They move as fast through space
us the earth , and sometimes much faster.
J'ho motion is retarded by contact with
Lho air. This friction gives the heat and
consequently the light. Very few of them
: ire projected in t > ueh a way us to strike
the earth. As the meteor shoots through
space if it has n motion which directs it
towards the earth , the pressure con-
lenses the air under it and causes the
Throe days i\f tor the meteor fell in Iowa
in 1875 , a meteoric stone , weighing seven
[ Kwnds , was found precisely where ob-
jervors had seen a "glowing coal" do-
jcond to the earth. Farmers working
-heir fields in the latter part of the
nonth found about 400 pounds of
meteoric stones on the meteoric field.
Those evidently formed only a small
Iragmont of the entire meteoric body ,
io the whole mass must have weighed
5,000 pounds.
This meteor ranks with these of Pul-
ilbk , Poland , which fell January 30 ,
1808 ; Kuyahula , Hungary , Juno 9 , 1SGG ;
Drguell , Franco , May 4 , 1801 ; the
) iio which fell in Guernsey
jounty , Ohio , May 1 , 18GO , null
, vhich was seen from the Ohio to the At-
antlo coast ; Parnallco , India , February
58 , 18-57 ; L'Aiglo , Franco , April 20 , 1S03.
This great Iowa meteor consibted of
in elongated pear-shaped mass of the
nest dazzling whiteness. Thobulk of
, ho mass was about two thousand foot
eng and four hundred feet in diameter ,
, ho narrow white trail was about four
feet long and forty feet in di-
unetor. The body was posteriorly en
veloped by a much less brilliant trail ,
ihading from orange inside to greon-
sh outside , and extending about
line miles along the path of the
netoor. Persons in the track of
meteor saw such a brilliant
slrcular disk of white light surrounded
> y an orago to greenish halo , the dim
light of which was constantly traversed
ly narrow bands of brilliant light , run-
ung from the central disk in irregularly
iurvcd lines toward the circumference.
Vs the body , inercasimg in brilliancy and
ipparcnt magnitude , was rapidly up-
u'oaching the earth both men and ani-
nuls were overcome by fear. The mo-
eor , when it struck the atmosphere of
no earth and became visible , was at an
iltitudo of 150 miles vertically above the
own of Plonsnntyillo , Mo. , and finally
ixplodcd over a point three miles south-
ifist of Norway , la. , at an altitude of
.bout ton miles. While the meteor
Tossed the northwestern ( Pralrlo ) town-
hip of Keokuk county It was seen to
livldo into two equal parts , a small
astern portion continuing its motion
lorthcabtward , but soon losing its Ijril-
ianoy , and a sovcn to fourteen times
'renter western portion which remained
ntensoly brilliant until its final oxplo-
lon. It was the smaller portion of the
iioteor which produced the meteoric
bower in Iowa and Annum townships of
owa county. While dividing the meteor
iroduced two tremendous detonations
ftor the main body had crossed
ho railroad at Marongo it produced
hroo terrific detonations which shook
luildlngs for miles around. A variety
f other sounds wore hoard over a circa-
: ir area of 150 miles in diameter. To
hose farthest away from the orbit it
ounded nb if their chimneys were on
TO. Those nearest the track heard a
irolonped rumbling and rolling sound ,
, -hlch they compared to a train running
vor a hlgli and long trestle bridge.
The meteorite stones soon had a inur-
ot value. Two dollurH a pound were
ITered for all that could bo obtained ,
( no stone weighing forty-four pounds
as found and sold to a "meteor broker"
> r $2.50. It was sold In a few days to an
stronomer for $88. Tlio meteorites are
Lways covered with a black crust , mak-
ig them to all intents and purposes coin-
loto stones. The smallest stone so far
> und weighs about two ounces , the
irgost 024 times that muoh or seventy-
ght pounds. The crust of the fragmon-
try stonort is formoddurlngtho cosmlcnl
irt of their motion through the earth's
.mosphere. The crust is not duo to
islon , but simply to the heating of the
nor layer of the stone to a rod heat , us
is boon proved by Mounter.
These meteorites are exceedingly
ugh , and It is difficult to break thorn
> ; this is duo to the iron grultis being
irtly connectectod by fibres and folia.
.Ill Iho niokollforous id present in do-
died masses , or occurs sporadically
the stono. These meteorites belong
the great class of sporadosldoros of
nubroo. In this class there are three
tocles ; these containing much , llttlo or
it very llttlo iron , so that it can only
) recognized by a magnifier orti micro-
oiw. The Iowa stones contain hut
itlo plainly visible metallic Iron in do-
uhuu grains.
