Surrounded by the members of nls family
nnd a few loving friends , Judge J.\V. Siwoge
died at his residence nt 413 North Twenty-
second street nt a few minutes after 8 o'clock
All day yesterday his physician and rela
tives realized that nil hopes for the recovery
of the sick man had passed , but were of the
opinion that life might bo prolonged for a few
tliiys at least.
During the early evening the Judge began
filnklng rapidly nnd passed away as peace

Iilfo of Judge JaiiiCH W. Savage.
Judge Savngo was taken sick About a
niontli ngo , suffering a relapse .from
a malady which , a few months pro-
rlou-sty , It was thought would re
sult fatally. Ho rallied , however , and
mad ofcoblo attempts to again resume his
wonted luiblts and calling. Ho was , in a
measure only , successful. Ho rode out nt
intervals nnd bis presence on the streets re
assured friends that the genial gentleman
had fully recovered from the attack. The
relapse , however , resulted as above stated.
.The gentleman , the scholar , the jurist passed
mviiy , his lost moments comforted by his de
voted wife and the sorrowing friends of
.lames Woodruff Savage came of a distin

in .Bedford , N. H. His early life was passed
ia a fanning community. Its quiet ana slm-

youth there were the gravity of a minister's

Woodruff , as managing cleric. Judge Wood
ruff , at that time , held high lank la the
profession and bis ofllco was full of heavy
business , He was a most amiable gentleman
and took ix deep and affectionate interest In
his young kinsman.
On July 1,1801 , Mr. Savage was commis
sioned a captain In the regular army and assigned -
signed as nid-do-camp to the staff of General
Fremont , and In tUo October following was
promoted to the position of major ,
In March , 1802 , ho was again promoted
this time to a lieutenant-colonelcy.
In December. 1803 , ho resigned his
commission In the regular army and was
mustered in us colonel of the Twelfth New
York volunteer cavalry.
Ho served until the close of hostilities and
on August . " > , 18(35 ( , was mustered out with his
After retiring1 from military service Col
onel Savngo spent a year in travel.
April 18 , IStir , just after Nebraska had been
admitted to the union , ho removed to this
city and resumed the practice of his profes
sion. He was then , as fcdeod ho continued to
bo up to the time of his death , well-knit ,
vigorous , dignified mien and gentle manner.
A bright spirit and a kindly speech were his ,
so that at once friends gathered around him ,
and through all the years and contentions
which have passed sluco then , he has -held
them to him.
Colonel Savngo at once took a high rank at
the bar , many of whoso members have
attained enviable places in the country.
In 1S09 ho became associated In practice
with Hon. Charles P. Manderson , now
United States senator from this state , under
the style of Savage & Manderson. ,
The public esteem in which he was hold Is
shown by the repeated calls of his fellow
citizens for his services.
In 1870 ho received the nomination of the
democratic party for member of congress ,
but was defeated by Hon. Lorenzo Crounse.
In 187 ; ! the legislature elected him regent
of the stnto university , which ofllco ho held
until it was made elective by the constitution
In November , 1375 , ho was elected judge of
the third Judicial district , and in 1870 was ro-
clocted to the same oftlco for another term.
The district was largely republican , and his
election both times by largo majorities bore
omphntlo testimony to the esteem in
which ho was held and the value
of his judldul services. He had the best
qualities of a good Judge a vigorous administration -
istration , conscientious impartiality , a quick
apprehension and n strong native sense ) of
justice. The business of his district very
largely exceeded that of any other In the
state , but fewer of Ills judgments were car
ried to the supreme court for review than
tlioso of any other judge. That court seldom
reversed him ,
The severities of his ofllco compelled him
to resign it before the expiration of bis term ,
his health having become seriously impaired.
In 18S3 , be resumed the practice of law.
"With great experience ho was able ) to bring
into the service of his largo clientage wis
dom , skill and abundant learning.
A vacancy occurred at this time In the
chancellorship of the state university. The
position was offered to Judge Savage and the
friends of the institution pressed upon him
the acceptance of it with great urgency.
They felt that he had the wisdom to guide It
through the troubles which then surrounded
it , and bring it to that measure of success
and service which other western state uni
versities enjoy. Nor dla ho in any measure
underrate the dignity tendered him , nor
what a flt man could do in the promises ; but ,
eroatlyto the disappointment of nil who
hoped for peed things of the younp Institu
tion , the judge felt himself constrained to do-
cllno the honor.
At the November election , 1883 , ho was a
candidate for judge of the supreme court on
the democratic ticket hut was defeated by
450 votes when the republican majority In
the state was flvo times that number.
The judge had been one of the trustees of
the Omaha public library slnco 1881 , and tiaa
also been a trustee of Bcllovuo college.
In July , 1S35 , 1'resldent Clovcland
appointed him a government director of

among their treasures was a Shakespearean
library of many volumes , and rich In rare
editions almost beyond any in the west. Both
of them were most delightfully fond of every
word and minutely learned in all the lore of
thu great poet.
Besides his researches after Shakespearean
lore , Judco Savage devoted himself to Ameri
can history. Hero may bo mentioned only
two of his interesting papers on-such topics.
April 10 , 1880 , ho read a paper before the
Nebraska Stnto Historical society which ho
entitled : "Tho Discovery of Nebraska , " and
which was printed among the transactions of
the society for that year.
After adverting to the many , efforts being -
ing made on all hands to compel the vast li
braries of all countries to give up their
dead treasures , ho states his purpose thus :
"I propose to collect and present this evenIng -
Ing , a fovv of the reasons wo have for believ
ing that four score years before the pil-
grams landed on the venerable shores of
Massachusetts ; sixty-eight years before
Hudson discovered the beautiful river which

Elizabeth was a little girl , and Charles V.
sat upon the united throne of Germany and
Spain. Nebraska was discovered , and the pe
culiarities of her soil and climate- noted , her
fruits and productions described , and her hi
habitants and animals depicted. "
Judge Savage communicated to the society
another paper , which ho entitles ; "A visit
to Nebraska in 1602 , " and which is printed
In the "Transactions" of 1887.
It is an account of the expedition of Don
Diego. Count Pcnalosa , which took place In
the year 1CG2.

their author , and doubtless , as a recognition
of his services in the cause of American his

AN EXHIBITION OF TRUE ART ,
The Steele Building Aglow with Gems of
the Brush ,
SOME OF THE STRIKING PICTURES SEEN.
Opening Day or the Omaha Art Ex
hibition and a Glance at Some
of the tirilllant Features
In the Display.
The Omaha Art Exhibition is a revelation.
No flncr display of the higher art was over
made west of the Mississippi. This means
that in scope , arrangement , extent aud qual
ity of paintings , the exhibit In the Steele
building excels anything undertaken by the
art-loving people of Omaha.
Not every picture in the largo collection Is
good some have no place there. But thcro
are so many that please and delight a true
westerner tltat columns might bo written
upon them. It Is easy to forget one's self in
contemplation of the many rare canvases.
Two days might profitably bo spent and yet
not all the pictures receive the attention they
so richly deserve at the hands of visitors.
A BHK representative stopped Into the ex
hibit yesterday. Ho found that the four
walls of two stories of the largo building had
been hung with pictures. Upon the walls of
the lower story nro pictures of wonderful
power , yet It Is not until the pictures above
are seen that ono becomes bewildered at the

No. 51 by F. A. Ilridgninn , is very cleverly

No. 61 by W. D. Sadler , entitled "Past and
Present , " elves a view of three or four monks
in various attitudes common to the tailor's
bench. One is sowing in the old fashioned
way , while another seems to bo somewhat
rattled In his attempts to manngo a modern
sewing machine. The picture is good as a
whole , but the beads of ono or two of the
monks do not show a sufllclent amount of
study on the part of the artist.

wharf along which boats are anchored. The
picture Is too large , but the technique dis
played Is above criticism.
No. Ill ) by the same artist , Is a very clev

A Ilttlo picture along towards the end ol
the gallery bearing no number , gives a view
in the domicile of a dnrkoy. There is n cook
stove in ono corner , a home-made carpet on
the floor , n rough table by the wull and a
mirror by the Window. Before the window
stands u colored girl , urruycd in bright
colored garments , apparently making her
toilet preparatory to a visit from her sweet
heart , who can bo seen in the distance
through the window. The execution of this
little canvass is very mio indeed , and the picture
turo is commented on very generally and
Nos. 71 , 72 , 73 , 74 and 75 , which hang near
together on the lower floor , are entitled to
the very highest commendation anil exhibit a
very high degree of art. They will receive
the extended notice they deserve in a later
issue of Tin : BBB.
While the visitor may have been pleasec
and entertained by the pictures seen in the
lower gallery , ho is delighted and almost
bewildered by the wonderful productions
which are presented on the Hour above. One
of the most notable of these is a picture o
Japaueso musicians which will attract the
attention , it is safe to say , of every visitor to
the Omaha exhibition. In execution It is
Ilttlo short of marvellous ; nothing to equal i
has over before been seen in this city.

Adams of the Union Pacific to Retire

All of the conflicting rumors that have been
in circulation concerning the alleged pur

way to a firm belief that the transfer has

will bo In active management of the system
