If you don't bcllevo It , It Is because you
were sick yesterday afternoon ana couldn't
get out to the driving park.
Just think ! Klvo thousand pcoplo In this
civilized , Christian city , skinned out of 25
cents npicco on a beautiful Sabbath after
noon and nothing to show for their white
alley. Nothing but experience.

Added Insult to Injury by skipping out of

Well , experience Is a good thing , and with
Dr. Duryca's sermon In the morning and
that practical Illustration of the other side of
life at the driving park In the afternoon , It
wasn't such a bad day after all.
Of course you've heard about the air ship
the great Chicago ulr ship. Well , that was
the pamo wo went up against and wo hit It ,
Oh so hard. Yes , It was the self-same , Identi
cal invention that didn't ascend In St. Joe
and was attached by Impatient creditors who ,
when the box. was opened , found only a
wagon load and a half of sawdust. You read
about It In the telegraphrolumnsof Tut : BEE.
So dm the rest of us , but , vo went out tosco
It Just the same.
Wo saw that \\o very snmo box , lonp , nar

v.Ill over &co It.Vo deliberately touched a
match to It and the smoke was passing the
planet Mars at sundown.
If wo had only hnd Mr. Hush and Mr.
Dodd to have thrown on ton of 111 Five
thousand mortals would have danced around
their funeral pyre In ghoulish glee. They
missed n grand opportunity , and It's milieus
to measles now that they won't have
even n corirorato guard to cheer them when
they finally got re.idy to shuillc off.
As Is well known , the city has been
flooded for days with dodgers , posters and
lithographs , setting forth the fact that tit

ship would ascend from the driving park ,
I tailing with It a bridal party , and that at a
height of 1.000 foot from terra

As early us 1 o'clock the tldo of travel
began to ( tow toward the driving park.
People went afoot , on horseback and in car
riages , whllo ovcry north bound motor train
on cither the cable , Hanscom park or South
Omaha line was crowded almost to suffoca
tion. Everybody wanted to see tbo air ship
and they gave up their silver quar
ters at the gates as cheerfully
as though the overworked ticket sailors
had held g H at tholr heads and ordered
tnom to foru over. They swnimed In through
the east , south and west gates , and crushed
Into the grand stand. That was one place
where the management was lame. They
didn't charge anything for admission to the
amphitheater , \\hon they might have re
ceived an additional 10 cents per ho.id just as
well as not. Hut then , they wanted every
body seated , so that there would bo fewer
smelling committees loosa on the ground , so
perhaps It was just as well that they man
aged itio show as they did.
The storv iravelwl around , lust as stories
USJn u crowd , that there was"to bo a ton-
mlle race between two lady riders , who were
to change horses every mile. Then
n couple of females , mounted on n
pair of bronchos , appealed on the
track ns If to verify thoioport. They rode
up and down several times , and then retired
to ( jlvu place to a couple of boys who came
on nnd rode a half mlle handicap pony race
that was fairly Interesting until the quarter
polo was rcncned.
The females then returned nnd cantered
their steeds down past the grand stand. Ono
of them continued around the track to the
opening and disappeared , after which the
other wheeled herhorso and came Hying back
past the stand. At the goto she tried to pull
off the truck , and making a short turn , went
over backward. Her foot caugot in the stir
rup , and the unfortunate creature was com
pelled to stand on her head until a number of
men corralcd tbo horse and released her from
her embarrassing predicament. Kno wasn't
killed , and as she put on n bioad
grin and sauntered down behind tbo grand
stnna serious doubts began to arise in the
minds of the crowd nt to whether they were
to receive the full value of their mouoy.
The stream continued to flow In at the
pates , and the stand could hardly have ac
commodated another person , while the quar
ter stretch was lined with carriages , and
fully two thousand persons crowdcu their
noses ugalnst tl > o picket fence. The Fie-
inont , Kllthorn fc Missouri Valley bridge was
black with spectators , who didn't Imvo n
qmuter to spare , mid other impecunious In
dividuals endeavored to hold vantage places
on it switch engine Just outside the grounds ,
or on roofs , trees or fences. Hundreds of
carriages wcio drawn up on the level traot

grounds , nnd many ot the occupr.nt.s were of

finally thrco men climbed slowly over the
fcnco on the Inside of the track and proceeded
over to where the long , blue bov was quietly
reposing , surrounded by fourteen blue gasO'
line barrels. They tipped thu thing over ,
pulled n board off tbo bottom , nnd Uicnst-irted
toward the grand stand , while the others
hauled out n few lonesome bunches
of excelsior from the stomach of the
box. The gentleman In the judged
stand took off bis hat , and allowed the
crowd to recognize the
forgotten features ofV. . Wupplch , ex-cuii <
didnlo for tbo city urosccutorship.
The crowd began to make a turbulent
demonstration , and after calling them to
order with thu Judges' boll , Mr. Wappioh
hastened to make himself solid by declaring
that ho was a citizen of Omaha , but oven
then It would have gene hard with him , had

That was all.

Hush and Dodd had loft behind. They were
taken to the station and locked up , and then
the story of their connection with the deal
was made known ,
Iloburl Cohce had been employed to sell

of the box onices just before they skipped.

Charles Knno collected & > 1 at the south

C. K. Hotn , an employe of the Driving
'nrk ' association , was also mudo a prisoner ,
and his silk hat nnd whiskers were thrust
Into a cell with eight honoss and a pair of
drunks. He lamented his arrest , and said ho
was unwittingly drawn into what proved to
bo it swindle , although perfectly Innocent.
Some of the ticket sellers said that Uoth
had employed them , nnd ho explained It by
saying that ho thought everything was
straight and had helped Hush and Dodd all
ho could to perfect arrangements.
Last , but not least of the prisoners , was J.
D. Turner , the young man who was to have

that ho was an advertising man and had been

Ho knew nothing about the scheme , nnd had
never seen the nlr ship , out had thought nil
along that It was simply a balloon. He know
that the ship failed to ascend In St. Jo2 , on
account of the r.iln , but neither Bush nor
Dodd had over given him any explanation.
Ho had not intended to get married , and
knew nothing about ttiat part of it until ho
saw the proof of posters. Ho said It was too
late to kick then , and ho supposed he might
as well bo advertised as anybody else. Hn
had no Idea who the young lady was , al

and it thus hapjwied that ho had been taken

from him , and ho imuio up his muni that the
only way to get It bark was to help the ex

the advertising bills , and was "In" to the ex

a complaint in the case , but were told this

Bush and Dodd hired saddle horses at the
Jefferson square barn to go to the park In
the afternoon , nnd returned about 4 o'clock
with their animals covered with lather. They
ran to the Dellono hotel , where they had been

an order from Union Pacific headquarters to

strict guard is still being kept over them ,
notwithstanding there Is not , nor has tbcro

quiries as to tbo probable cause of
such action. Everything was extremely
quiet with them nnd all hands expressed
surprise over the move of the Union

they had information that the Hock Island
intended a rcpatltlon of their move of the
night of January 4 , when a train was rushed
onto the Union iMrillo main line and re
mained there twenty-four hours , meantime
continuing to ask for running orders , which
were refused , adding force to the statement

the courts or Mr. Cable , and keep the latter's
trains out at any cost. At all events the
Hock Island has made no move calling for
such demonstration from the Union Pacific.

The week past has been generally cold and
rainy , delaying farm work somewhat , but fur-
iiishlug needed moisture ; crops are every
where reported In good condition.
In the Klkhorn valley the rainfall has boon
slight ; elsewhere In the state It was above
the average , Increasing In amount to the
southwestward , where It reached n maxi
mum of nearly live Inches in the upper Re
publican volley. Hain was well distributed
through the week In some places falling
every day and was therefore well absorbed
by the ground.
The temperature and sunshine were every
where below the average , except In the Elkhorn -
horn valley. A light frost oocurrod on the
ISth , but doing no damu"j , and the cloudy
weather of the week dbubtlos prevented In
jurious frosts generally. Snow fell In con
nection with the rain at Alliance.
Corn planting , although so nowhat delayed
by the wet weather , U nearly completed In
nil parts of the state , and the earlier planted
corn is up , but the weather of the week has
on the whole been unfavorable for the ger
mination and growth of corn. In several lo

\ Sermon C.tlcMilnteil to ICvoko Much
DIsciiNHlon In Hclljiloiift ClroloM.
NEW YOIIK , May 24. Hov. Dr. Hcbor New
ton of All Souls church preached a sermon
his morning which Is calculated to evoke
much discussion In religious circles. Ho
made n statement of his much mooted views.
His text wcs "Hold fast to the form of
sacred words. "
The reverend gentleman said In substance :
'It ' has been said of the Niccno creed that It
was lit only to bo sun ? . On the other hand ,
It would bo hard to sot the Westminster
faith to music. The Nlceno creed Is the
amplification of the apostles' creed. Scarcely
a doctrine which Is In dispute In the
chuVches round about1 us can furnish it
proper ground for dispute in our
roomy church. Tno only affirmation In
the Nlceno creed i Is the largo ,
clastic declaration , 'I believe In ono Catholic
and apostollo church. " Wo cannot Judge of
Catholicism when It ruled out the foremost
man In the church for the bishopric because
of his opinion concerning the EpUcopal.
What must wo believe concerning the Bible"
Nothing boj end the simply declaration ot
the Nlceno'cieed , whospoko by tlu prophets.
You may hold to the plenary inspiration of
the scriptures and tollcvo every word
dilated by the Almighty , or you may hold
that lame and reasonable view which is
spreading throughout out church so rapldiv
with equal loyalty to our only
authority. the creed. What does
the church bid us bellovo concerning the
story of the creation I You are equally free
to read the story in Guanos as history
or parable.Vhat does the church
command us to believe concerning
and origin of evil I The full of man I Noth
ing , whatever. Concerning the atonement ,
tno language ol the creed ) Who for us men
nnd for our salvation came down from
heaven < Concerning futuio punishment !
Nothing. Not contained In the language of
creed. 'Ho shall como again with elory to
Judge both the quick and the dead. ' All
theories of the duration of punishment nro
extra creedlcss. The first form of the arti
cle * contained an article of future punishment
nnd that article was aftcrw.ird withdrawn.
"What of the rcstiricctlon ? That dead
nriso Into life Immortal , clothed In bodily
form , I understand to be the teaching of our
great creeds. The nature of the resurrected
body is not affirmed. You are frco to believe
this in a literal sense. '
'Concerning ' the sacrament and the Lord's
supper we me free to believe most anything
that commends Itself to Christian conscious
ness. On all these themes on which creeds
are silent it is natural that'man should think.
Opinions must bo formed nnd held , and the
Christian , bo ho layman orclergvmun ; , is loft
free to form his own opinion. The Niccno
creed is a charter of liberality. It frees us
from the burning questions with which
Protestantism Is on lire today. Our great
creed , " concluded the speaker , "Is the recon
ciliation of Christianity jvlth itself. Chris
tianity Is torn and dismembered before our
eyes. It is paralyzed wlthldoubt. Thestrifo
of creeds is seen on every'sldo. Man cannot
find a shelter under the reformation confes
sions of faith with their loni ; drawn out
metaphysics. Ho who Mds the signs of the
times sees the alternative ? * ; throw overboard
the creeds or to simplify to i riToday , could-
our Protestant churcllos bcw'cqntent : a tfart
from their reformation1 coi.vessibns of faith
nndadopt that great Catholic creed which has
conic down through the centuries , there would
bo an end of strife and contention. Dr.
Brldgcman would not have to leave his
church for his views on tlio question of fu
ture punishment , and Brlggs could excite no
contention in his church on the question of
Inspiration. Our great creed is the reconcili
ation of Christian faith and modern thought
on theology and sclouco , "
Dr. Itridponian an tiplscopnllnn.
New YOIIIC , May 24. Rev. Dr. C. D. W.
Brldgcman. who resigned the pastorate of

confession. Owing to tho. prominence or ttio

If President Harrison succeeds In
settling satisfactorily the Bearing sea
dispute he will have added anotncr
laurel to his cap In the way of dispos
ing of knotty questions , \\liiehhoinheritcd
after many years of unsuccessful efforts on
the part of his predecessors. Ttio seal Hsh-
erics have inado trouolu for presidents
almost ever since the United States pur
chased Alaska , about a quarter of a century
The prospects of the early settlement of
the sealing trouble reminds 0:10 of the fact
that no president , In a time of peace , has
cvnr been presented with so many knotty
questions as heirlooms from predecessors ns
1'rcstdunt Harriion. Many of them cumo
through the department of state , but most of
them hid to bo settled la congress , bein <
internal affairs. fho Latin-American
questions are fairly determined by
the establishment of tbo bureau
of American republics nnd the
ratification of various commercial treaties.
Thu international postal problems were tauen
up and disposed of In such a way that wo
now have foreign malls going nnd coming
inado up on tbo mail ships , ready for imme
diate transportation to their destination , the
same ns mails nro "done up" on postal cars.
This appeared to bo an insoluble problem
to the Cleveland postofllco authorities. Con

ginning of this work and facilitating ocean
mails , but Postmaster General Vitas could
not Hnd a way to improve the service , and so

Harrison' * to - "worry over , " as * the
last president thought. No sooner
did this administration como in
than those hoary problems were promptly
taken up and disposed of in a way that has
given general satisfaction. It is n remark
able fact that no partisan complaint has over
been heard about the disposition of any gen
eral problem disposed of by President Harri
son , with the exception of the tariff and sil
ver. and upon them the two great parties are
divided , and probably will bo divided for the
lifetime of parties. No ono has over charged
him with treating n non-partisan question
with a partisan spirit. Tno administration

Harrison and the republican congress which
dir * > anded on March 4 were confronted with
ono especially vexatious problum which is
sure to como up again within eightrcn months
In the form of rehabilitated iiorploxltlos. It
was that of deficiencies in appropriations
necessary to run the federal government.
Ono of the greatest features of a briuf dem
ocratic administration In congress or the
white house Is economy. To save the money
of the government nt the expense of the hon
est citizen who has honest claims against the
government and by appropriating only a portion
tion of the funds absolutely necessary to run
the government from year to year , so as to
accumulate deficiencies for a succeeding
party to make good , is the stronghold of the
democrats. During the lost session of con
gress millions upon millions of money imper
atively necessary for the operation of the
government was not appropriated , the ob
ject being to make it necessary for the repub
licans to increase appropriations , thus giving
the democrats a chance to cry "extrava
gance" and talk about "a billion-dollar con
gress. " It is the policy of the republicans
in congress nnd the executive branches of
the go1 eminent to fairly and squarely appro
priate all the money necessary every year
to paal' ' honest claims of ull honest citi
zens against thu government and pay upon
demand all the running expenses of tlio
same. To do otherwise is as decelvlntr and
dishonest as I1 , is for a banker to keep from
his publsihed statements the amounts his
Institution owes and to charge as peed assets
worthl03s paper. Under a republican ad
ministration It Is ns easy for any citizen to
got nt a definite nnd faithful
statement of the condition of the
government as it is to learn the condition
of the bank where ho keopa his deposit ! .
Ilo always knows just where ho stanus.
Under democratic administration it is like
operation with a "tickei" bank , where tMo
real obligations , liabilities , are unknown nnd
overv honest cebt is staved of ns long as
possible , waiting for some unlucky
Should another democratic president oo
elected the surplus will again pile up , If the
tariff laws are not destroyed , and there will
bo deficiencies again in the operating ac
counts of ovcry executive department. But
the next president , bo he Cleveland , Harri
son or somebody else , \\ill Hnd no deficien
cies , no faUo bookkeeping or accounts. The
federal government will bo ready for trans
fer into other hands or a continuance of the
present stewardship oa March 4 , Ifc'.U. Ill as
clean condition as the best kept national
bank nil the books balanced , debts paid ,
money appropriated for the balance of tbo
fiscal year , and a statement laid upon the
president's desk , showing him honestly and
faithfully just how Uncle Sam stands.
TUB OlinUIKO WEST.
"It's the west in the future , " said Post
master General Wanamaker after returning
from his Pacific tour with the president , the
other day , "and that section U going to
attract the attention hereafter I thought I
knew something of growing countries before
I turned mv face toward the setting sun , but
I found before I got to San Diego that the
west was doing moro than I conceived. Be
fore wo got on the Union Pacific railroad to
return , and after we had spun around Wash'
In uton state , as a tangent , I .was amazed.
Thu west must have better moll facilities

office facilities. How quickly we make a big

factories and beautiful streets , with all that

terprise. What nerve those people show !
What prolits real estate yields ! "
If the buomcrt in the majority of towns
ahd cities through which the president
passed could hear him predict their business
futura and comment upon their enterprise
and deserts they would print his words In
rod and make of them a book. Hu la very
enthusiastic of the growing west , and It U
safe to say the country through which ho
passed will not suffer from the effects of his

Omaha next October. Itwai in session four
Silver nnd Irritation to a largo extent over
shadowed all other subjects the congress had
to discuss , and they were many and varied
There was opposition to the first two on.prln-
clplo and on the dotatls , and this fact 'alono
brought thorn into prominence. On thoothcr
subjects there was n unanimity that kept tbo
surface unrunicd. Tha scope of the conven
tion was highly dlvorslllcd , although several
unimportant proposition * were sidetracked
before the mcntliiK orpauUod.
The movement to urge the repeal of the
tariff on Mexican Ic.iu was to have been
backed by Texas nnd Kansas City smelters ,
but through the diplomacy of ilio west tbo
subject was not oven referred to. A discus-
plan would have engendered moro acri
mony than wns evoked by the hlivor
resolutions , The extreme western delegation
carried tbo convention by storm and the agri
cultural states had only a feeble hearing ,
llcnco the result of the Omaha moetliiij ro-
mams problematical. That mooting will
adopt resolutions to bo submitted to the
national conyross , and with the possibility of
a morn complete representation from dele
gates who were this week in C'fncmimtl , sil
ver resolutions may bo amended to provide
for the coinage ot American silver only , The
closeness of the vote before adjournment
demonstrates that the silver men have over
estimated their strength. Although lown ,
Louisiana , Kansas , Nebraska and Arkansas
wore not In the convention , thu vote was 5T >
to fib In favor of unlimited frco coinage. With
the presence of absent delegates the result
might have boon different.

Cmctoo , May 21. Chlcaeo was today th
cciio of the denouement of a genuine ro-
mnnco with all essential fe.uuras n wealthy
nobleman , a disinherited son , n beautiful
.vonian , n duel ar.d a mystery.
Baron Rudolph Kalnoky do Korespatka , n
.icphow of Count Kalnoky of Vienna , miulo
ills Hrst visit to Chicago about n month ago ,
registering nt the Ulchcllou merely as Ru
dolph KalnokjJ of Now York. Ho was hand
some and distinguished , nppoared tn no the
possessor of unlimited means , nnd , whllo
evidently suffering from habitual melan
choly , soon became a favorite with the fo\V
to whom ho gave his friendship ,
The object of his stay In Chicago was a
mystery to all except Manager Carlson of
the hotel , to whom ho partially told his
story. Kalnoky , according to his own con
fession , was at ono time the staunch do-
fenucr and inisslonato admirer of the erratic
Natnllo of Sorvla , during her sometimes em
barrassing vUlts to Austria. Ho had also
been n chosen companion of the revels of thd
ay young crown prince , whoso prnnki
shocked all Europe. Hint event only drovd
Kalnoky to uihler dissipations.
Seeking n change lit America , ho acci
dentally met Miss Mlttlo Athcrton , n mom *
her of the Duff opera company during the
ast Chicago engagement. She was the pos
sessor of n volco of unusual power and mel
ody and a charming face. She led the b.irou
n d olcful lile , both lirro nnd In otticr cltlei
to which ho followed her She constantly
koit before him the fact that-ho could never
become his wife , as her beat t wns already
given to ono for whoso snko she would
shortly end her stage life. Kalnoky llnally
became convinced of the truth of tills and re
mained behind when the company loft Chi
Ten days ago ho weakened and inado ft
lying trip to Loulsvillo in one last effort to
conquer the pretty actress. While there ho
seems > o have mot ono of his numerous rivals ,
though not the successful ono.
Last Friday morning ho returned to the
Uicnelicu , having given up his original Idea
of following Miss Athcrton fioin Loulsvillo
to IMttsburg. The same night the man
whom ho had encountered in the south dined
with him at the Hichcllcu restaurant , tUQ
two seeming to tnko a morbid Interest In to-
po'.her drowning their mutuuUoirows. A too
free Indulgence in wmo , however , quickly
ended the friendly character of thu meeting.
In thp parlor u few mlnutos after dinner a
cry of rage was hoard and a heavy fall.
Kalnoky had knocked his companion dowu
for speaking disrespectfully of tbo woman ho
An hour afterward a friend of the south
erner appeared with a resXotfiil | ! note de
manding a meeting. Kalnoky at oneo ac
cepted In n note which he sent to a friend
then stopplng.-nt the Richelieu and to which ,
tbo southerner's second was referred.
With the exception of the rash act \vhtch
gave the excuse for a ohallongo the
affair was carried out with regard
to every nicety. On Saturday night the
baron wns Informed that nil the details bail
been arranged and that the meotiiig would
take place at Jackson park at daybreak of
tbo following morning. Kulnoky's second ,
having the choice of weapons , had selected
rapiers , the baron being unfamiliar with the
use of pistols , and the arrangement belnjj
satisfactory to his opponent , who was
familiar with fencing through student llfi ) .
That night Knh.oky expressed his satisfac
tion at the coming of tba morrow. If bo had
the luck to fall , ho said , his opponent's blada
would but take the place of a u capon In his
own hand , a ? his \\ild Ufa had caused him to
bo disowned by his family , and suicide alone
remained for him.
Carlson , believing that the affair would not
end seriously , begged to let the matter take
The baron settled his bill and left word
that If ha did not survive all his bulonglngs
were to bo sent to the woman for whore ho'-or
ho had fought.
At 4 o'clock this morning ho cntorod a ,
waiting carriage and was Immediately Joined
by his second. On Prairie avenue they
stopped to take In a prominent young physi
cian , whom the baron had known when the
former was a student In the hospitals ot
At Jackson pnrk they found the opposlto
party. The seconds walked about for some
tlmo selecting the most fnvorablo lighting
crounds. This was nt last found close to
the Forty-ninth street entrance to the park ,
just west of the small bildgc. It was an
Ideal spot for an affair of honor. On ono side
It was snlolded by a high board fence , which
separates the Improved from the unimproved
portions of the park , and on the otbor by a
Croat knoll surmounted by a heavy growth of
At ten minutes past (1 ( the adversaries were
facing each other , sword In hand , and bared
to tholr shirts. A moment later itio word
was given and , Ilka a Hash , the southerner
commenced the attack. After some share
lighting the southerner succeeded in inflict
ing a slight wound In the right leg of the
baron , A little Inter the baron mndo n clever
lunge which priukcd the skin on tlio right
shoulder of his adversary. The latter , how
ever , parried admirably , and at the same
moment , to the horror of the seconds , the
the point of his adversary's ' sword. It
entered his neck , A stream of blood gushed
from the tvound.
The seconds nt once stopped the combitt.
Baron Kulnoky was assisted to an adjoining1
knoll and his wound hastily dressed. After
tucertuhiini : that the result would not bo
fatal the southerner and his friends loft the
Every effort to Identify the man has lalled
with the exception of Kalnoky. Ho appears to
have been unknown to all concerned. Ills
disappearance , however , loads to the belief
that ho is the son of n prominent cltlron of
Atlanta , Cit. , who , though qulto young , has
tnkun an active pirt In several attain of
honor. He Is known to have boarded the
Cincinnati train on the UI ? Four which loft
the Hyde 1'urk station at 0:45 : , two hours ,
after the termination of the combat.
Baron Knlnoky's whereabouts iiro kept
secret , but unless ho was nblo to go cast
tonight ho Is still nt the residence of the
attending physician or with friends in Hyde
Manager Carlson of the Rlcholiuu , whila
deeply rcgreotlni ; the affair and an
noyed that It should have become
known. Is assured that the young Austrian
has been well cared for and that
his life Is not In Immediate daiiKur. From
conversations with him , however , ho fuars
that the baron's display was not n mere ao-
ddmit , but that , Hiidlng hlmielf facing ono
not his equal In RworiUminshlp , ho took that
means of honorably ending his life. If this
was the cnsa Mr. Carlson fears that Kulnoky
may follow the fulluni of this by a successful
attempt upon tils own llfo.
