The long drawn out controversy over the
right to use the Union Pacific bridge was
ended , and a happy feeling pervaded tbo cir
cles of railroad officials from heads of de
partments down to ynrdmnstors.
The sword of Damocles which had hung
suspended over the heads of thrco great rail

onteied by Justice Drower , been sheathed ,
nnd the bloodless battle wns terminated by
the circuit couit ordering tbo uofendant com

entered into by tlio Hock Island nnd tbo

The HOOK Island put in its connections
"Wednesday night with the Union Pacific
tracks at South Omaha and Beatrice and the
local accommodation train ran through yesterday -
day morning from Nelson , point beyond
Lincoln , to Council Bluffs.
For the present n combination freight nnd
passenger train will bo run each wny daily
between the Blurts and Nelson.
A time table tor tnrough trains is being
pic pared as rapiuly as possible nnd
will bo put In effect nbout August 16 , at
which time the through passenger trains be
tween Chicago and Denver will bo run
thiough Omaha. The Omaha route is short
er than the ono via St. Joseph at present
used by the Hock Island and the run between
Chicago and Denver will bo shortened two or
thrco hours by the change. Through freight
trains will be put on about tbo Kith prox.
Until this time card is put In
effect tno pussongor trains from tlio
Iowa division will bo run solid into
Omaha , commencing today , with the train
which arrives in Omaha at 0:55 : p.m. Tbo
tinln which left Omaha nt-l:30 : was' inado up

Thistialn included the private carnf I'lcsi-

A conference wns hold Wednesday night
between Thomas L. Kimbnll , president of the
Union depot company ; I'lcsldent Cable of the
Hocklslund , and Mr. ( Joodnough of the Mil
waukee. At this conference it wns agreed that
the Hock Island and Milwaukee should be
allowed to use the present depot upon payment
to the depot company of n pie rata proportion
tion of tbo interest nn the property used lisa
temporary uepot and yards , and a proportion
of the cost of maintenance nnd operation ,
bused on whoelago , In accord with the

Slnro the decision of the courts In the
bridge controversy tbo interest In the union
depot case has revived and a well-known cltl-
zen suggested that It was time for the board
of trade committee to wnUo up if it proposed
doing anything in the matter.
"Theboard of trade appointed a committee
about t-vo months ago , " said he ,
"to look Into the depot situation and
report whether anything could bo
dona to hasten tha settlement of the case
Tlio commitlea started out \\lth u great
tlourish of trumpets , hut went to sleep be
fore twenty-four hours had elapsed nnd noth
ing has been heard from it since. Now Is the
time for tlio committee to do something , if It
has imy life loft , nud nccompllsh the purpose
lor which it was appointed. "
An official of ttio Union depot com
pany stated yesterday that the
failure on the part of the city to
deliver the bonds to the depot company
within the time specified had acted as n release -
lease of the depot company from all obliga
tions In thu promises nnd there was now no
obligation on the part of that company to
comply with the wishes of thu city In regard
to H building or to build u union depot unless
it chose to do so.
Moreover , the failure of the city to give
the Un'on ' Puclllo n quit claim deed to the
property on which thu depot building stands ,
pievunts that company from transferring the
property to thu union depot company ,
consequently the Jiurllngton company will
refuse to put any moro money Into a building
on ground to which the depot company has
no legal title.
Mr. John U , Howe stated , in reply1 to n
question , that the liijuctlou case In the state
court would probably como up for final bearing -
ing at tbo Soptotbbor term.
Ho was oskod If the decision In tbo bridge
case would have any moral effect on tbo in
junction caio , to which bo replied
that ho wai amenable to ndvlco from
men who wore straightforward , honest
citrons , consistent in their advocacy of the
cause of the community , but ho should not bo
swerved by the talk of men who wcro sub
servient to railroad bosses nnd who traveled
over the country on passes , all of which Is
tnkon to mean thnt Mr. Howe might bo per-
ftundod to withdraw hi * Injunction if con
vinced thnt the boU Interests of the com
munity demanded It.

HER MARRIAGE WAS A FAILURE
Remarkable Story of n Womau Who Was
Wedded but no Wife ,
FORCED TO THE ALTAR BY A PISTOL.
tHnry MoKlnncv t ! run ted n Divorce
Krom u IIiiHlwiuI Slio Never Ac
knowledged and Wlioso Name
She Did Not Assume.
July 30. The strangest mar
riage a divorce court was over called upon to
dissolve has been annulled by n decree of
Justice Hngner of the sunromo court of tbo
District of Columbia. Mary Stuart McICin-
ncy , who was "wedded yet no wife , " was
granted n divorce from Charles B. Heed , with
permission to resume her maiden name. Her
ground of complaint was that she had been
"married by force , " almost at the point of n
pistol in fact , and that she had never Mis-
talned the relation of wtfo to tier would-bo
Mary McKluncyis about twenty-fouroars
old. She can barely remember her father ,
who died when she was very young , nnd her
mother has long been nn Invalid' , so fur
years Mary has had no ono to lean upon and
no ono to whom to appeal for nuvico and ns-
slstiinco. She was ono of the first clerks ap
pointed by Superintendent Porter to assist
In the census bureau. Ono of the first ac
quaintances she made in the census bureau
was Charles Kdwln Heed , n gooa-looklng
follow , who was regarded as nn excellent
clerk. The two young people worked sldo
by sldo for several months , nnd n close
friendship grow up between them. After
Superintendent 1'ortor assigned them both
to night work ileed was in the habit of es
corting Miss McIClnnoy to her homo In the
early morning hours. Heed was polltolv at
tentive , but never obtrusive. As the days
wore by she noticed n slight chnngo in him ,
but she is quite sure she was totally unpro-
nurod to rocolvn trom him n declaration of
iovo and offer of marriage. It was the old
story. She lospectcd him nnd would bo a
sister to him , but she really could not Iovo
him.Kccil did not gnovo over bis rejection. Ho
told her very cooly , but with quiet emphasis ,
that be wonted her to bo his wife , not bis
sister , and ended by declaring his firm con
viction thnt sooucr or later she would change
her mind and marry him. Ho was in no
hurry , ho said , and could wait. Mary did
not know what to make of Heed's conduct.
She had expected to sco him either angry or
tnnrful. This cool , unmoved determination
frightened her , but she contented herself by
forbidding him to call upon her , and avoided
him as much as possible when engaged in
her daily task. Hut Heed was not to be
shaken olT so easily. He intercepted her nt
every opportunity , nnd even risked being
handed over to the pollco in order to have n
few words with her. On her way to and
from tlio bureau ho would wait for tier at
quiet corners , and always with the urgent
request that she reconsider her determina
tion. Her fear of him soon increased to pos
itive terror , for besides declaring that ho
would surely .marry her some day , ho
warned her that ho would kill her before s he
should wed another.
About the first of last November Miss Me-
Klnney resigned from the census buioau. In
giving up her woik she believed she bad also
cot , rid of her importunate suitor. One day ,
howcversho wont to the bureau to get some
thing she had left theic , nnd upon leaving
the building was met bv Heed , who drew her
into a corridor and telling her that ho had n
revolver in his pocket ueclured that ho would
kill her at once unless she would consent to
marry him. She says that , looking at bis de
termined facu and into his glittering oyessho
believed ho would carry out bis throat. He
went on to tell her how easily they could bo
married without anyone knowing of the
affair. They would not live to
gether until she had learned to
love him , but once married ho would feel
sure of her and ccitain that sbeuouid not
marry another. With the fear of death thus
before her she consented , mid obeying his in
structions met him within nn hour nnd they
were murried the same afternoon by Key.

Justice of the Peace O'Neil , who got a license

papers. But a wideawake local reporter
found the blank in the record , and when it
was lilted up ho printed the notice of the
For two days Reed bad kept his promise
not to claim Mary McKlnnoy as his wife.
She had gone home , and with tno fear of her
husband strong upon her she had said noth
ing to her mother of the marriaeo. Hut when
the marriage was published Heed wrote his
wife , pointing to the fact that their secret
hud been divulged and urging that she ac
knowledge him as nor husband and live with
him. She replied in a curt note , refusing his
plea and declining even to grant him an in
iCcea followed his first letter with others ,
nnd tbo girl almost frantic with fear con
sulted an old family friend , David A. Mc-
Knigbt , a well known lawyer. Mclvnight
sent a peremptory message to Heed to call on
him. Heed came promptly nnd told bis story
without the slightest hesitation. Ho admitted
everything that Miss McIClnnoy hud said ,
but ho loved the gill pussionatelv and find not
thought of injuring her. Ho was sure she
would In time return his Iovo and they
would bo very unuur. Ho wanted
hir wife to live with him nnd
pleaded for an interview so that ho
might nersuado her. The lawyer concluded
that it would bo best for the young woman to
acknowledge Heed as her husband and he nr
ranged nn Interview between them. lie

room. In response to her busbind's plead

McKnight says , watched her sufferings with
perfect composure , with not n trace of pity
apparent is bis stiong , pale face. She was
his wife , bo said , and be could wait till she
learned to Iovo him. After the joiinc people
hud separated MoICnight told Mary's mother
the whole story. Mrs. Mclfinnoy dcclaiod
that the marriage must bo annulled Then a
curious revelation was inado. Mary uro-
duced a paper signed bv Heed which she
said bo had given her two days after the
marriage. It road as follow * :
