The Importance of his contribution toward tin demonstration of the Darwinian theory nnd exposition of the Sponccrlan philosophy gained tno Immudlato recognition of the masters themselves seine twenty years ago.

Ho Is no terribly destructive of all our cobweb notions of Ins- torv. When Mr. Mann Introduced hlnvto his nu- d 10nee , It was at oneo evident that Mr. Fisko was not of the "pule , scholarly stooped" gen us , ana In ttio moment one remembered thai thn historian nnd scientist had also declared 'It does pay to smoko" nnd that "tho coming man will drink wlno.

History needs to bo rewritten with over ; now generation. Especially is this true ol the discovery of America , atfd especially necessary in thcso days wbcn so manyruo\v and disturbing data arb constantly coming ti light and n broader , fuller , yet not' los : microscopic , motubd of treating history I : ooliig everywheredemanded. . The dlscov cry of America must bo treated in its con ncctlon with other subjects ; it must bo borm in mind that it was only a part , importau as that part may bo , In ttio general broaden ing of mind that so predominantly cbaractet izcd the fifteenth and sixteenth conturlc tno world over. The modern map must bi banished from our mental view , that inoacrr map of thn ancient world In which the enl ) things ancient are the Latinized names.

It Is necessary to get lnt < sympathy with the state of nscertalnci knowledge of tbo times to fully appreciate UIQ situation ; nineteenth century icuowlodgi must bo forgotten for the tlino being , or cas aside , The discovery of America was n commot clal untcrprlso , principally.

Her eye were over on Asm ; from tbo morning tiuii had always coino that danger .Europe was Interested In Asia cornmer dully. Mr. Fisko put brlelly , but In high light the trade relations of the occldon and the orient during tbo so-called durl ages. But in the thirteenth contur fiortio events occurred which brought uuou a change. Most prominent among thos was tbo rise of Moghol empireTb members of that great dynasty were or lightened to a dogroo. and at their Invltalio it number of Frunclsclan monks visited Chin and back to western Europe brought th startling news that Asia on tbo east wn terminated by a great ocu.in , not , as Ptolom , bad theorized , by swamps. And hero Prof. Fisko prinked a very full bullied bubble of popular history. Tno idc of the earth being Hat was held by none bi the Illiterate of that time. Aristotle ha spoken of the sphericity of thu cartt | and by the dawn of the Christln era the Idea ( the fact ) wns we known. A very important point to romom bor. for the body of learned geographer with wbom Columbus debated nt Lisbon on ono und nil bollovcd In tbo sphericity of tb earth. Uogor Bacon of England in 1 )7 ho quoted many authorities to provo tbo poss bllity of reaching the Indies by an ocaanl route , but hie IdeA had taken no hold , bi causa as'yct thnro wus no necessity for gain that way. In 1-110 the author of tno "Iinn ? Mundl" had gathered all the known oplnlo an the subject , nnd it i now well known that Christopher Columbu possessed the book and wns largely influence by It ; his marginally annotated copy Is noi in the cathedral at Seville. After a pregnant reforoaca to the book c Marco Polo , the speaker came to what h evidently considers the seed of thoshru that bore in fruitage tbo discovery ( America.

Whnt to del The circumnnvlgatio of Africa had boon spoken of years uofor largely as a geographically nud scientlllcnllj curious i > oint ; now it entered the realm o 'practical politics. " so to speak. Mr. Fisko doscrlbod how the western cons of Africa bad been explored by vnrlou hr.rdy mariners , noting that Bartbolomov Columbus , Christopher's brother , bad beei in tbo expedition of Bartholomew Diaz , wh bad rounded tbo capo of Good Ilopo , About 1470 Ibo brothers Columbus were i Lisbon , There Christopher man led an wont to live on Porto Santo , In tbo Madeira All exploring expeditions called at Port Kauto , leaving their Impress and Insplrln the Gonooio navigator and drcaraor.

Narcotic cures have got another victim. This tlmo'it Is the decoction of drugs that destroys the uppotito for the use of tobacco , nnd In this case the life of a man. William Xeller , a carpoator , who has been In the employ of Contractor Coots for the past tune years , nnd who resided with ls wife nt the corner of Twentieth nnd Grnco streets , was nn inveterate tobacco chower.

HORSE HIGH AND HOG TIGHT Strost Oommissioner WincUpaar PtiU a Legal Fence Around the City's Landi MAYOR BEMIS DETERMINED THE MOVE Property Claimed \ > y the Union 1'iiclllc Ho Held by the City Until Do- feilcil : In the Court * A Doll * nlto 1'roccodlng. City Attorney Connell decided yesterday , after looking Into the matter thoroughly , that the triangular ploca ot land containing about'-'CO acres nnd situated on th ) rlvor bank just south of East , Omaha was the property of the city , and not tno Union Pa- clllo Uiilway company. A diagram of the pint of ground was prepared by City En gineer Hosowater , nnd nlong wltn Mr. Con- noil's decision laid baforo the maydr. In compliance- with n decision roachoJ nttor a consultation with the engineer nnd the city attorney , Mayor Homls yesterday morning ordered the land In dispute to bo fenced In. Street Commissioner \Vludipjar w.xi rather expecting tbo order , and whou it reAched him early yesterday morning was ready with a force of thirty men and several wagon loads of material to commence work nt onca. Once on the ground tno laborow turned to nnd worked rapidly. The llr.it post was planted nt tha foot of Cumin ? stwat and a line of posts placed In position to the north ward ns fast as possible. When the work men laid off at noon-tliiio they had about 1,530 foot of yellow pine boird fence , llvo feet high , in position. KntcriMl Form-it Objection. Some Union Paclflj employes happened along about this time and when they niw what was going on , hastened to tbo railway company's headquarters -nud reported the matter. This brougnt William Canada of tbo Union Pacific land department to the scene nsfnitns ho could travel. Ho was accom panied by a clerk nnd throe or four yardmon. Mr. Canada approached Street Commis sioner Windspcar , who was still on tbo ground In charco of the work , and notified him "ofllclally" that ho was a trosspassor nnd would bo hold responsible , nnd concluded his llttlo speech by ordering Windspsnr , his men and material off the ground. The bluft didn't work on Wlndspoar , however , who merely replied that ho was acting under orders from the mayor mid city attorney and did not Intend to stop until the work wns completed or ho was ordered to do so by the courts. The carpenters returned to their work and Canada loft , saying that ho wa * going to got out an Injunction. In snlto of tbo rain the work progressed fairly well , but not as rapidly as bad been expected. The land being fenced ) n is Just north of the old water works pumping station mm In the form.of n letter V , made so by two sid ings ; thus tbo fence does not cross nny of the rnilrond tracks. . Windsponr stayed oa the ground all day and saw that the work was pushed rnpjdly forward. Ho wanted to bo on hand any wny If there wns n chance for n fuss , ns it wns thought nt ono time thnt the Union Pacific might send a gang of men out to tear down the fence already up. All through the long , wet afternoon tbo men worked , and at quitting time hud 1,030 feet of the long fence in place. Up to 0 o'clock , when the men lolt the ground for their homos , Canada haa not showed up with his'threatencd injunction. Wliut the I.iuvycrH Say. General Solicitor Thurston was seen last night by a representative of Tin : BEE , but declined to disclose the course which would bo pursued by the corporation ho represents. * Ho dd | say. though , th'at no force would bo used by the Union Paciflc employes to dnvo the men from their work or to tear down the long yellow wall of plno boards. City Attorney Connell suld last nigbt that if the railroad company had a bettor claim to the land than the city it would hnvo to go into tbo courts to provo it. The city attor ney further said that the land In question was the northern key to the city , and was of great value and would be especially so if another railroad desired entrance into the city.Street Street Commissioner Windspoar was rather pleased with his day's labor , though he said that the heavy rain greatly retarded the work. The material for the completion of the fence is nil on the ground nnd the work of erecting tbo fencing will bo continued today , Two regular police officers nnd several of tbo street commissioner's men guarded the fence and material all night. WITHOUT A TKArriC M.YNAGKK. Mr. C. S. Mullen IlcslKiix IIlH Position With the Union I'ucllio Hallway. The rcslgnntion of Charles S. Mellon ns general traffic nianagar of the Union Pacific is a surprise in railway circles , though a few intimates profois having known that ho had contemplated such a move for a considerable time back. Tbo resignation will take effect April 1 , and Mr. Mellon has accepted the general managership of the Now York & New England railroad. Tho'near approach of the annual meeting of the Union Pacific stockholders and the rumors of a probable change In management lead some railroad men to conclude that Mr , Mellon has improved an opportunity to an ticipate a olg revolution in tbo olllco buildIng - Ing ut tbo foot of Farnam street. On the other hand thoso.wbo stand closest to Mr. Mellon assort positively that the change was made soUly for family considera tions. Ho had been living ii Bosto.i before joining the Union Pacliioforco , und bis fam ily did not tuko kindly to the tar west. As a matter of fact their homo was made In Chicago cage , With an offica In Omaha and a homo in Chicago Mr. Mellon was lorccd to spend much of bis time at New Ycrk and other dis tant polnU. His friends explain that ho long contemplated u return to tbo east nnd tbat- the change- now announced Is simply la line with his desire and has noslgnlllcunt bearing upon any Union Pacific policy. Mr. Mellon himself Is said to have been well pleased with the west , and it Is thought In some quarters that the death of his wife , which occurred last Sunday , may lead to the withdrawal of bis resignation , but as ho bus accepted another position that Is hardly probable. ThosuccessorsMp is of great Interest in railway circles , but Its yet it teems to bo only n matter of speculation nud very vague at tbat. General Manager Clark Is ex pected in tbo city this week nnd may on- nounco a now traffic manager , but as the an nual meeting Is only n mouth distant the an nouncement may bo delayed until after tbat event transpires. A Union Pacific- official who has closely followed tbo trend of tbat road's affairs for many yeura expresses the opinion that the traffic managership will bo abolished as a distinct office , "Tho most thoughtful railroad men. " ho said , "havo coma to tno conclusion that a traffic manager is a fifth wheel. The general freight and the general passenger agents are his subordinates , and have to refer a great many things to him for bis approval or rejec tion. Tno traffic manager's business calls him awny from headquarters a great deal , nnd it has been tbo experience of the Union Pacific tbnt ills action on importnut mutters has of lea been delayed two weeks.
