jflut TIiRii Ills Change. nCtlm Ordinance
Dill n't , I'lcnso 3tr. Popplnton
Mr. Wiley JUB an Kx-
City Attorney Poppleton is not well pleased
with the- changes that have been nmdo In
the ordinance granting a franchise to the
Ballon clcctrlo light company , and Inspoalc-
inp upon the subject saldj
"I drew and reported to the council or de
livered to tlio chairman of the judiciary com-
mlttcc nn ordinance upon this subject. That
ordlnanco I thought reasonably safe for the
city , though not claiming any special
linowloJffo of the subject with which it deals.
"Tho ordlnnnco which was afterwards re
ferred to mo differs with my draft In three
respects , somewhat radically.
"Tho original ordinance limited the fran
chises to the Ballou electric
light manufacturing company. The
present ordinance ) as it Is bcforo the city
council , grants to that company nnd its assigns ;
thus making ttio franchises transferable ! .
The tranfer , however , ! required to receive
the approval nnd consent of the council.
"Tho original ordlnnnco that I prepared con
tained a clause providing that the city of
Ornatm , nt anj time , slio'ilJ have the right to
purclmsQ the property in question upon an ap-
pntidod value. This provision la stricken out
of tlio now ordinance.
"Tho original ordlnanco contained a provi
sion npnlnst consolidating tlio stock , fran
chises or oarnlngs with any other olectrio
light company. The present ordinance simply
prohibits consolidation of Ita stock or earn
ings with any other electric Hcht company
operating in the city of Omaha nt the thno of
the passage of this ordinance. The power to
niter , nmcndnnd repeal Is stricken out 61 tno
"Asido from thcso tiirro changes I sco no
other changes In tha ordinance winch I regard
as material. Thcso changes are radical nnd
ngalmit my Judgment.
"it does not nnpear for what nurposo the or
dinance was referred to mo in the first
place. If it was simply to pass upon its le
gality In form , I can sco no objection to It on
thiitscoro , hut If passed , t think it would ho
a valid ordinance. "
Councilman Morcnrty , chairman of the
Judiciary , to which the original ordlnanco
was rolerrcd , said : "Yes , I mndo the
changes of which Air. I'opplcton speaks , nnd
I hud my reasons for doing so. In the first
place , the ordinance wns so closely drawn thai
thlslclectric llyht company could not have
compiled with its provisions and I niado the
Changes In order that It may como
into the city , do business and furnish us with
cheap liKbt. If the ordinance goes through
in Its present form I know the company will
como to Omaha nnd oxoend nt least $50,000
this neason , but if this same ordinance
should bo nmcudcd so as to conform to Attor
ney Popploton's ideas , It could not possibly
accept the franchise , as it would bo required
to perform Impossibilities. "
Mr. Wiloy of the Now Omaha Thompson-
Houston company said : "I know that the
ordinance drafted by Mr. Eoppleton was ns
f ixvor.iblo as imy reputable company cou Id ask
for , and n company that desired to do busi
ness in n fair and squuro manner would have
no dlfllculty In complying with its terms.
" 1 do not care to speak or this
Ballon company , as it is called ,
ns I do not regard it as a competitor. Its
capital must certainly he limited , nsit is
only doing business in Plattsuiouth , where it
is running two dynamos and a email ulant.
"Tho idea of a company doing business in
Omaha and expecting to ox pond only & 0.000
in a system and plant is somewhat ridicu
lous. At the present time our company has
a paid up capital of $ ( XXOOU. This is all in
vested in our Omaha system und $100,000 ad
ditional , so you see $50,000 would not go very
far in lighting streets , stores and other build
"If the council wants competition wo nro
satisfied , but wo want a company to como
hero that will invest .somo money nnd bo a
credit to the prosperity of the city ,
"Whether or not wo nro Riving good service -
ice Is best evidenced by tlio work that wo
nro doing. , At the present thno wo have moro
than nine thousand lights In operation and
nro behind with onr orders.
"As 1 said before , I do not want to say
anything to injure the Bnllou company , but
it is too small a concern to try and do busi
ness in Omaha. Wo shall not do anything
to prevent the granting of this franchise ,
nor shull wo lay n straw in the way to pre
vent the now company from coming hero ,
though I have my reasons for anticipating
their objects. I might as well say what the
objects of this company nro.
"Tho men at the head of the concern
merely wish to got a franchise nnd then sell
out.to us or the gas company , and thus nxlso
"How do I know thlsl

chise the nan at the head of the Plnttsmouth
concern came to us three times with propo
sitions to sell , but as there was nothing wo
wanted , wo could not entertain any prouo-

"There goes u man , " said ono of the
melancholy relics of the stock boom days
who was holding up n cornorof Pauper's
alloy the other morning , says the San
Francisco Examiner , "there goes a man
who got tlio best of a couple of stock
brokers once. "
" 01 got out that don't go , " said a
coupio moro of the same fraternity , who
were helping the first speaker.
"Fact though , " said the relic. "It

That night nbout 1 ! n. in. , the mechanic

correspondent of the Seattle Press. A
couple of days ago Elisha Skc n deter
mined to probe this mutter for his own
satisfaction , nnd therefore started out on
a prospecting trip. Fortunately for him
ho carried along his rillo. After having1
examined tot quite a time the low-lying
borders of the river
, ho ascended a
pretty stoop activity. Upon reaching
the top ho espied a herd of elk. The
ascent had boon dilllcult and ho could
not retrace his stops without incurring
trroat danger. Ho hud , therefore no al
ternative but to face the wild "eritters , "
of which there was quito a number. The
apparent loader , o. fine largo buck , was
particularly prominent. Scarcely had
Mr. Skecn gained a firm footing on the
upland , to which ho had ascended with
such dilllculty , when the big loader
made a charge at him. Mr. Skoon
dodged behind the stump of a tree , but
the oik wheeled around nnd charged
again. By this time Mr. Skeon
had got nls shooting iron in readi
ness and let the infuriated beust

the shoulder and penetrated its heart ,
and Mr. Elk sank to the ground defunct.
Mr. Skeon returned homo and the day

able-bodied men two full days to pack

A Moral In This.
Congressman W. C. P. Breckenrldgo
of Kentucky was , in his early days , a re
porter on a western paper. Ills courtesy
to newspaper men , even at his bussiost t
moments , when intoruption greatly in
convenienced him , hiiB often "been com
mented upon. The white-haired Kon-
Uickinn hnd gone behind the stage , after
a brilliant speech , last summer in Phil
adelphia , to catch a few minute's rest
before making another in.a , hall across
the street. It was a hot , sultry night ,
and prespiration was Pouring down the
congressman's faco. Ilo loolced wilted ,
uncomfortable , tired out.
A reporter's card was handed to him.
" 'Toll him to como in. " "But congress
man you must have some rest"protested
a man solicitous of his welfare , "and
you know you will have to speak again
In a few minutes. " "That doesn't matter -
tor , " was the quick roply. Turning to
the man nt his sldo , the congressman
said : "I always see a reporter , I used
to bo ono. The one person to whom the
greatest consideration should bo given is
a newspaper reporter.'J When ox-Con-
grossman Breckinridgo's son was mndo
editor of the college paper at Princeton

"Al Burton , the gambler , is a great

cinnati Enquirer. Ono of his peculiari
ties is punishing nimsolf when ho loses
his money or dooa anything that after
thought suggests to his mind as foolish ,
I remember a story I heard some time
ago. Burton had been playing faro
bank nnd had lost quitf a nuni of money.
Ho wont to his room , nnd the man who
occupied the next room declares that ho
spout the balance of the night marching
up and down , and at every ate ] ) swearing
nt himself somewhat after this fashion :
'You thought you know nil about faro ,
didn't you ? You old fool , that's
what you nro , ' und so on.1 Finally ho
laid himself out on the table , folded his
arms and rolled off on the llonr. This is
a favorite Way ho has of punishing
himself , and , boiug such n largo man , is
dojubtloss very olloctlvo. "

JAY BURROWS AS A MESSIAH
Charles Woostor Writes an Open Letter to
the Alllonco Dictator.

The "Onicfal Ilcncl" of ttio State

Itim liy nn "Ilx-
Str.vnn CnnEK , Nob. , Fob. IB. To Jay Bur
rows , Ksq. Dear air : ID wrlltnpf you nn
open latter , as ' I utn no\v about to do , 1 must
apologize nt'tho outset for not addressing
you as "brother. " In the first place , from
your standpoint , I niu not a member of the
ulll.inco &o that possibly I b vo no right to
thus address you , and in the second place , to
do so might bo nn act of great presumption
on my part , as will appear furltibr on. And
yet In not doing so I nm , perhaps , equally
guilty of as great Irrovoronco.
IJoforrlns to my so-called expulsion from
the alliance , 1 rcmcmbor that you ouco said
In the "olllciul organ" that you know nothing
of It until It was reported to the secre
tory In the rarulnr way ; novortholoas I
nm credibly Informed that that act on tlio
pnrtof my homo clllaiico wns the result of
an order from "headquarters" to tliu effect
that Wooitor should bo "flrcd" without
charges belnf ? preferred ; nnd so. us thoronra
always Inslgnitlcant fellows ready to do the
dirty work of nn arbitrary and lawless su
perior , a few of that sort madi ) n sucak and
11 red Woostor accordingly.
Now. I make no complaint on this score , hc-
eauso I well undcrstnnd that dictators are not
very much governed by law , and then , too ,
there was somoshow of propriety in that pro
cedure from the fact thtil It was well known ,
at "headquarters" that no charges against
Wooster could bo formulated that could bo
mndo to stick , whereas It wns equally well
known thut If Wooster remained in the
alliance ho could , and probably would pro/or
charges agalust certain parties nt headquar
ters that ho could , and would , make slide.
Therefore thorn was a peculiar beauty in
such hiroic action. So far , such tactics scorn
sit < work very well in the alliance , but wticn
you coiuo to try them on the supreme court
and constitution of Nebraska you found you
wcro butting your head against a stouu wall.
But this Is merely Incidental.
IiP In a recent issue of the "ofllclal organ" ap
pears this query : "Is Charles Wooster still
camping on Jay Burrows' Trail ! " No
Jay. I am not. I only agreed to do that thing
until November last , nnd I think you can
testify that In this I Icopt my word , even If I
did violate every obligation I ever took as a
member of the alliance , as you ouco lylngly
assorted lu the "ollldal organ. " ( I bog your
pardon ' , Jay. I take back tlmtgeiulo Imputa
tion against your voracity. 1 him forgotten
for the moment that you had cast oil your
earthly habiliments , so to speak , and
hail assumed the dignity of a god.
Iiv must bo moro caicful , or you will
write mo down as a blasphemer
along with Church Howe. ) Since that time ,
being satisfied that my harpoon had entered
vour vitals , 1 have bceu content to stand and
look on and sco you froth and fotim and
slosh about in the soup , deeming it only nec
essary for mo occasionally to give you a
little 1 ! moro line.
Perhaps I ought not to have said that you
had assumed the dignity of a god ,
siftco you huvo not been formally in
augurated as such. Ideiiro always to keep
strictly within the bounds of truth. But you
were not formally inaugurated as dictator ,
and yet you slid quietly and gracefully into
that position and no one socmcd to know it
until you were at the height of your glory ;
and , after two years or moro of absolute sway ,
none among your subjects questioning your
authority , save ono or two insUrulHcant ful-
loWs , no ono could tell just \vhon
your reiga began , 'i'ho signs of the
tunes are portoutious o your coming
glory , and after Jong reflecting on the tyr
anny of the corporations and the corruption ,
venality and general cussedness of the old
parties , especially of the "g. o. p. , " as con
trasted with your own spotless purity , you
must havajittalnod a very exalted frauio of
mind , so that you will drop into tlie Mossiati-
shlp as easily as you had previously douo
into i the dictatorship , with the self-conscious
ness that even then you are tatdngsoinethlng
far short of the ] uat reward of your most
I observe that in a formal note addressed
to the supreme court , you resign the ofllco of
dictator , to prepare the way , I suppose , and
the minds of the people , for your now role.
And yet , except on the principal that the
greater includes the less , I cannot sec whv
you should have resigned. Better get all
you can and keep all you get like your first
lieutenant who holds four or five different
ofllcos and is now a claimant for another. But
really , Jay , do you think deciding on so
important u step without first advising with
mo was iu very good form !
I observe also that since election very
largo amount of space iu the "ofllclal organ"
is weekly filled with resolutions from differ
ent ullinnces over the state commendatory of
yourself ; in fact the entire paper , save the
patent matter , seems ( o bo devoted to telliu
what you think and what others think of
you. You seem to have forgotten the prom ifl
ise made your srbscribers a year or two
ngo to employ able writers on
your paper. And why should
you do so siuco your own ideas nro so very
much superior ? And then , too , they don't
cost you n red cent. Now , Tin : Bun. for instance , -
stance , is at great expense to publish the
news from the four corners of the earth even
unto the hour of going to press , whereas the
"ofllclal organ" publishes next to no news nl t
nil , not even allfanco news. But then the
former labors under the disadvantages of be !
ing presided over by an ordinary mortal 1 ,
while the destinies of the luttor are
guided by ono who ranks the second person
of the trinity.
You may remember that in the "ofllcinl
organ" cf December 13 you printed , with
your approval , the following resolution :
"Kesolved , By Maple Grove alliance No.
5M1 , that we hold Hon. J. Hurrows as far
above Kosewater as Jesus ( Jurist is above his
Satnnio majesty. "
Now this , taken in connection with thofacl
of your resignation of the dictatorship anc
other corroborating circumstances , conclu
sively proves my contention that you
had assumed , or wcro about to assume ,
the aignity of a pod , for if you as much
auovo Hosowntcr as Christ is above the
devil , as the Maple Grove brethren afllrm , ii
necessarily follow that you nro above Christ
unless It bo claimed that Hosowatcr i
meaner than tno devil , which that gentle
man's worst enemies would scarce aflinn.
Nowtho devil , In orthodox clrcloj , is sup
posed to bo the qulntoscence of cussed'
ness , whereas Uosowator , with n
his faults has some good points.
Bo , then , dear Juy , I salute theu as the now
Messiah. Happy nm I that I have lived to
see this day , nnu thrice happy that in these
hard times I shall not now have to build tliu
brasn monument to your memory which . '
promised you during the campaign last fall
for gods don't need brass monuments.
liut , dear Jay , don't ' imagine that you
hnvo now escaped your enemies. Whei
Pllato said of Christ that ho found no
fault in him , so much tbo moro the people
demanded his life , and as Christ was dcnfcc
by 1'otor and botrnyed by Judos , so there are
some members of the alllanco who will deny
you or betray you for the gold of the pinto
crats. But bo ot good cheer. Fear then ,
not. All you have to do is to got on order
from headquarters to "lire them without
charges being preferred. "
Already wo have a case in point. In the
' ollleial organ" of January 31 Is tuls resolu
"Kesolvod , Hy Box Elder alliance
No. 803 , that , while we respect Brother Bur
rows as a man , * * * yet wo romoin
her that he 1s only mortal.and wo do not hold

These brethren say this by way of o
tioa to the resolution of Alaplo Grove allhuic
nbovo quoted , and then they proceed h
another resolution to urge the brethren generally
orally "to have a care lest the puoplo ho cou
vlnced that the alliance has mororovorona

Ho was indeed playing- . hnrd luck.

Marcus Aurolius Smith is the delegate
from Arizona and owes his popularity to
a game of baseball , eays the Glob I-
Democrat. Mark Smith is a Ifontuck-
ian , and when ho struck Tombstone , in
188J , ho was regarded ns n "tenderfoot. "
One afternoon soon nftor Smith's arrival
in Tombstone tlioro'was ' a game of ball ,
and , thinking to have some fun with the
tenderfoot from the states , the boys got
Smith to umpire thO'game. In a little
while there was a [ general row and
"Mnrlc" was called upon to decide some
knotty point. Ho "made his decision ,
hut , of course , it was nsatlsfactory , and
the row continued. It looked us if the
tunpiro was about to'bo'dono up , and the
Kentuckian was equal to the emergency ,
"Horo , you follows , play ball , " shouted
tlio umpire in a business-like way , and
at the sumo time emphasizing his com
mand by reaching uador hia coat-tails
and producing acouplo.of very ugly six-
shootora. They continued , hut no fur
ther attempt was ovorj made to guy the
tenderfoot from Kentucky , nnd ilo ul
once became popular .

The seed question is ono Hint recurs
o tlio farmer every year , and whether
10 grows all of his own seeds or pur
chases them from the seedsman , the im-
KH-lanco of possessing and planting only
ho very best is just tlio simo ; In cither
case , writes C. S. Walters in tlio i'ntc-
ic.il Farmer. Agricultural stations try
o help the farmers in the practical work
of testing seeds and giving the results of
heir investigations to the public.
Vxrmors who grow their own seeds
nroly succeed In gathering only the
purest nnd best , for there nro many
.hings operating against them , such as
ho lack of proper facilities of soil , posi-
lon and cultivation which the seedsman
can possess. It is very seldom that
ho farmer can grow as good seeds as
, hose who nmko a specialty of it , for
, ho crops are to him the main object of
planting the seeds , and the seed harvest
only nn incident. The rovorsa is true of
In handling his own seeds the farmer
should , therefore , bo careful to test
.hem before planting. After they have
jccn gathered and packed away during
the early winter many will die , lose
iholr germinating powers , or become
.njured by excessive heat and cold.
Worms will eat into ethers nnd ruin
ihcin so far as growth is concerned.
Cunumcrablo ether accidents may befall
ihoin , which must bo discovered before
, hey are used for planting. Another
.hlng in gathering seed , spurious seeds
of plants and weeds will sometimes got
mixed with them , and the percentage
of good ones will bo very small. Trials
or tests of seeds should , therefore ,
always bo made , and the relative per-
coiitngo of good ones ascertained. This
should bo done especially with pur-
chased seeds. Tlio agricultural stations
do this for the farmers to a certain ex
tent , but cultivators thomsclvors should
conduct a private test In tholr own
homes. There nro many frauds imposed
upon farmers by irresponsible seed
dealers , and the responsible ones fre
quently sulToi. * from the deceptions.
Sand made to resemble small beed are
sometimes mtxcdw itli them to increase
the bulk ; spurious kinds nro mixed
with the gonuinearticle , nnd old seeds ,
whether or not they retain their vitality
tor uaoro than aj year , aio mixed with
the fresh ones. Not unfrcquontly the
seeds of noxious weeds which resemble
these of good plants nro mixed in with
bho seeds ollorcd for sale. An export
botanist can easily detect the spurious
ones , but tlio average cultivator can not ,
and it is thus almost necessary for his
own protection that ho should test them
to ascertain their relative percentage of
good and bad seedn.
This testing process must bo done in
the winter time. If seeds are to bo
bought , only purchase enough of ono
brand to plant in a few boxes in the
house. Have the boxes in a warm room
illled , with fine soil , nnd give the seeds
sulllcicnt depth nnd moisture. The idea
is to make their surroundings as favor
able as possible , and then if thov germinate -
minato well in the boxes , but fail to
como up properly in the field , the culti-
vntor can conclude that it is duo to the
lack of proper cultivation. In this way
ono can find out where the blanio is ;
whether it rests with the seedsman
or with the cultivator. The seeds
should bo counted , and then the
number of plants that como up , so that
the relative percentage of good and bad
may bo ascertained. The germinating
powers of old seed should bo tried in the
same way. Such a test garden would
not require much labor , and it would
servo an important lesson to the culti
vator. It would also bo a good practice
to get a collection of all the different
kinds of noxious woods which are fre
quently mixed with good seeds , and put
them in bottles to bo labolod. The cul
tivator should bo b tanist enough for
this. Ho should conduct a little experi
ment nnd study garden of his own. In
the end the cultivator would bo wiser ,
would know bettor what the plans re
quired , and in every way Had it profita
ble to himself nnd farm.
Tlio Sheep Industry.
Mr. R. M. Boll , the well known sheep
breeder and writer , formerly of Missou
ri , but now connected with"tho depart
ment of agriculture at Washington ,
writes the American Sheep Brooder very
encouragingly of the bright future for
sheep breeding In this .country :
For many years Ihoro have boon
changes going on in this country point
ing to a state of affairs that culminated
within the last four years. There hnd
been intimations of tills periodically
the paat _ twenty-five years. Sheep rais
ing , in connection with agriculture , has
undergone many changes in the older
agricultural states. The farmers near
the eastern cities had solved the ques
tion of how to make sheep raising pay ,
but tbo corn raising slates had not un
less the prlco of wool favored their pros
A moro biiBincss-lilto view of the situa
tion presented Itself to the few , and to
men who had little or no experience with
sheep in the past , and now branches el
shcop industry were bought out and de
veloped thut were not thought of and
usual before. In short the sheep indus
try rapidly and hopefully diversified ,
and under the most providential increase
of tlio demand for mutton , a period of
prosperity for wide-awake sheep raisers
was inaugurated. This Is believed to bo
a permanent industry under the prouor
methods of brooding , feeding and general
There will bo no diminuatlon in the
fleece values if Iho mutton raising farm
ers use tlio discretion and judgment
within tiiolr roach. The wool will bo
changed in character but not in vnluo
and usefulness. Wool of every grade
will find its proper condition in the
United States , in which it can bo pro
duced profitably , liieh product of the
sheep has asuro market in the country.
Experience will show how'and where
wool can bo profitably raised , and the
sumo of mutton.
The procession will move forward to
bettor prosperity for these who keep uj
with the progress and development ol
huniirs in CalvcH.
