Pretty Lizzie McGovcrn lies dead at the
'morgue , goU-murdercd.
1 Sno was 17 years old , had known pov
erty all her Hfo , nnd during the past year
'had ' experienced enough of the tragic to
Orivo a much stronger person to desperation
The family lived nt Fourth and Hickory
Streets and consisted of Thomas McQovern ,
his wlfo and two daughters , of whom Lizzie
'was ' the younger. The homo Is a miserable
liorcl , the lower part of the hut having been
formed from a hole In the side of the bluff.
; Above this was a cheap frame covering ,
$ Which had bed rooms for the girls and
'was reached by means of a temporary
movable ladder stairway. The father Is iv
day laborer and seems to liavo been out of
work much of the tlmo , as the house showed
but meager evidence of having been the
object of any of the earnings or attentions
'of the family.
But Ltzzlo wns pretty , anil of course had a
'lover. But she was not allowed to enjoy this
luxury unmolested. The older sister was not
so pretty and had no lover , and thcro the
trouble commenced. One night when .llm
and no one , not oven the parents , knew the
other name of the lover was paying his
regular visit to the McGovcrn hut , lie had
' .some words with the elder sister. She
thought she should have a lover
.and gut married before Lizzie re
ceived the attentions of gentlemen. The
row became bitter and the slighted sister
- nought nn awful means of punishing the
' , lover who had been attracted by Lizzie's
Slater nnit .Snvnga.
While Jim and his sweetheart were ex-
. .changing , sweet nothings the sister left the
"room for a moment and when she returned
. 3bo carried in her hand a box of lye into
i which she poured a small cillantlty of water.
, Wutchlng her opportunity she made a dash
at Jim and attempted to throw it In his face.
Lizzie saw the attempt of her sister and
, sprang , her heart nllro with all the love-
lighted llamo of sclf-sucrillco , to prq-
i vent her from carrying out her evil
i design. The girls met In conillct and Liz
zie received the contents of the lye box in
' her own pretty face. The result was
frightful. The ix > or girl's face was horribly
i burned , ono of her eyes being almost totally
destroyed. But then she was not wholly
disconsolate. Jim had escaped unhurt.
The older sister left the house Immediately
nftcr the itragic event. She was arrested
and sent to the asylum , but has slnco re
turned to Omaha and Is supposed to bo somewhere -
where in the city , although her parents do
not know where she Is staying or what she
It was some tlmo before Lizzie recovered
from her injuries and then she sought em
ployment. She secured n place as waitress
at the Hichellou hotel anil worked there for
IVnutod to J.ook Well In Jim's I'.yci.

The girl lost her place at the hotel nnd
went homo on Monday. She was not
warmly welcomed , as there was no place In
the house for any but bread winners. She
brooded over her woes all dny Tuesday , and
that night she determined to end her life.
She entered her mother's room about
midnight crying. She said Jim was
going to skip out and leave her
and alio did not care to live any
longer. Then she told her mother that she

NEBRASKA AT THE FAIR.
MM. John H. Ilrlu'KS Tolln of the Plum of
the Ladles' llouril.
Mrs. John S. Brlggs , Nebraska's ropro-
'Bcntatlvo ' on the board of lady managers of
the World's fair , has returned from Chicago
, to remain for u week looking up matters of
interest to the woman's department of the
great exposition. In n brief interview she
said ton BUB reporter that matters were still
some what unsettled at the fair. The weather
has not been such as to give exhibitors a fair
chance to gut their goods in shape and the
BUUIO has kept the crowds away , although ;
good weather of the past few ilu.v has In
creased the attendance remarkably ,
' 'Wo arc trying to make arrangements for
u dty upon which to present the handsome
candelabrum to the lady managers. This
beautiful and useful ornament will be com
pleted within the next two weeks and will
bo shipped to Chicago us boon as finished.
"it is the intention to have Mrs. Cleveland
press the button that will turn on the cur
rent and Hood the candelabrum with light.
It will not bo necessary for Mrs. Cleveland
to como to Chicago to do this. She can ido
inaln in Washington , press the button , and
there will bo light In Chicago.
"Thcro Is another matter which is inter
esting the ladles just at present. Wo are
iolng ; to print a paper. It will ho entirely
under the control of the board of lady man
agers , ! und will bu managed by a special
committee , of which I have hud. the honor
to bo mndo a member. "
"How do the ladies stand on the question
of Sunday closing now that the fair is under

the subject , but 1 think that a majority of
/ them are in favor of closing on Sunday. "
Mm. Briggs has a number of important
matters in view that she is not at liberty
just now to spunk of , but which will proba
bly bring Nebraska prominently to the
front when the opportune time arrives.

The date nnd general arrangements were

Dan Farrell , Commissioner Utt and C. Hart-
iiiun , who will have full authority to act.
The Council Bluffs bridge toll of B cents
per hundred on agricultural Implements , ex
acted at present from Omaha firms , wns ex
haustively discussed. The discussion elicited
the statement from representatives of the
Omaha agricultural implement houses that
It would bo to the advantage of Omaha to
have the toll rebated , or some remedy ef
fected. It was said that the agricultural Im
plement houses of Omnhn did $12,000,000
worth of business last year. If the linns
engaged in this business could got a rebate
on this bridge toll It would Increase the busi
ness In Omaha und obviate the necessity of
distributing goods from interior Iowa towns ,
ns was now done to u grout extent. What
the Omaha firms wanted was an equitable
"In nnd out" rate based on Omaha.
May Move Arrois the Illver.
Mr. Sawyer of the McCormlek Harvester
company announced that there was some
probability of the Omaha branch of his firm
moving to Council Bluffs unless better ar
rangements \\oro made on bridgn tonnage.

The question of making a display of
Omaha statistics on a hugo canvas at the
Nebraska building nt the World's fair was
favorably ' discussed. It was also decided to
endeavor to reproduce some of the Manu

Chicago and said that it was sadly in need of
During the discussion on the merits and
demerits of the Nebraska state exhibit ut
the World's fair , Mr. A.'P. Tukey expressed
his views quite candidly. His remarks were
more in sorrow than in anger , although his
prldo was evidently nettled by what ho re
garded as the inadvertence of some mem
bers of the World's fair commission in
allowing the Interior of the Nebraska build
ing to bo so conspicuously cheerless in some
Tilled Up with III * routines. "
"Why , the top floor is absolutely bare and
and vacant , " said Mr. Tukey. "It ought to
bo filled up some way. Some arrangements
could bo made to have n portion of the Man
ufacturers exposition exhibits sent thero. I
was in the Nebraska building the other day ,
and while some portions of it are a credit to
the state thcro is great room for improve
ment. It looks as though procrastination
were responsible to a largo extent. It ought
to be improved if Nebraska wants to make a
good impression on visitors. It was so
cheerless In some portions that I got dis
gusted and walked out. I was completely
flllcd up with my feelings. "
Mr. Hicks concurred in the opinion ex
pressed by Mr. Tukey nnd said that the
press and public ought to take the matter
up at once and endeavor to rectify any ex
isting discropancics. Mr. Fnrrell said that
ho would take the Initial step and tendered
the reproduction of his exhibit , now nt the
Manufacturers exposition , to the World's
fair commissioners , if they desired It. The
discussion developed n general desire of tlio
commlttco to re-opera to'with Commissioner
General Garncau in assisting to fill up the
vacant floor at the Nebraska building.
C. II. Fowler , secretary of the club , ten
dered his resignation , owing to private busi
ness. It wns accepted with reluctance. The
meeting then adjourned subject to the call
of the chairman.
At the next meeting of the committee the
lumber and coal dealers of the city will bo
invited to attend. Matters pertaining to
those industries will bo discussed.

"Jt is really amusing to sco the frantic ex

alleged robbery of visitors to the fair , "

to a BEE man nt the Murray. "Now , in

the exhibits will bo in place in the us
buildings by Juno 10. I intended the fair last
week and there wns fully 1)0,000 ) people on
the grounds each day I was there ,
"A pleasant feature of the exposition , es
pecially for a man who wants to do the Nel

which makes a circuit of all the buildings on
the grounds. You can thus got u to
exterior view of the exposition in ono ur
and forty minutes.
"Tho Nebraska building compares most
favorably with the other state buildings at
the exposition ,
"I think that during the present week hole
board of directors will yield to popular de
mand and open the fair on Sundays. While
there is u division of bcntlmcni on the sub
ject , the majority of people , especially wage
earners , want the gates thrown wide open
on Sunday so they can at _ jwl without losing
tlmo from work , and

"There are many idle men und wpmon } n
Chicago just now , and I would advi'so. no ono
to go there in search , of employment at this
time. A largo surplus of workmen were out
of employment when construction work ut
the grounds was completed. Add to this nn
incoming of employment seekers from every :
quarter of the globe , all bound for Chicago ,
and you can readily see what u vast army ifO.of

A case now pending In the district court ,
entitled Charles V. Mas against the Com
mercial National bank nnd W. O. Taylor ,
furnished the foundation for nn Invcstlga-
tlon by the city council. The petition was
filed in the oftlco of Clerk Moorcs January
23 of the present year , nnd the demurrers of
the defendants were filed February 27. The
case was docketed and sot for trial at the
May term of the district court.
The plaintiff , Charles V. Mos , seeks
in his action to recover from the
Commercial National bank the sum
ot $10,000. Tlio petition reads that
on or about the 5th day of August , 1802 , the
Commercial National bank was In posses
sion , under n claim of ownership , of a stock
of goods formerly owned by C. M. Schneider
& Co. , of the actual value of $31,000. In
order to sell nnd dispose of the same to the
greatest advantage to ttsolf the bank was
desirous of placing C. M. Schneider in charge
of the same as n"gcnt. To Insure to them
selves the faithful and honest conduct of
the business by Schneider the bank pro
cured the plaintiff , Charles V. Mos , and W.
O. Taylor to guarantee to it that the amount
of $21,013.i3 ! would bo realized out of said
stoclf , and to sign a nota for the use of said
bank In the sum of Mf > 00 , which was to bo
the Hrst payment of Schneider , Mos and
Taylor. The note was signed and Is still
outstanding against Mos nnd unpaid.
Why Mos Sued the Hunk.
The bank agreed , so the petition cites ,
that In consideration of Mos and Taylor
signing the note nnd becoming sureties on
the bond of Schneider , und their agreement
to pay any sum short of the ? 2IG1.23 ! that
would bo rcall/cd from the sale of the stock ,
to turn back to them any sum that might bo
realized in excess of that sum from the sale
of the goods. Following this statement is a
copy of the agreement with the bank , signed
by A. P. Hopkins as president and Alfred
Millard as cashier.
Mos claimed tlmt the bank i-ecelvcd the
proceeds from the sale of the goods amount
ing to $10,000 in excess of the ? 21,0i.2i : ) : that
tbe bank was to retain , and that the $10.000
is rightfully duo to himself and Taylor. The
bank has refused and neglected to pay any-
tning to Mos on the contract , hence the
suit. Taylor Is made a party defendant for
the reason that ho has refused to join as a
party plaintiff. Judgment is asked in the
sum of $10,000 , with costs and Interest.
At the meeting of the city council Tues
day of last week Mayor Bemis sent In the
name of Mos us clerk at the police court ,
and the appointment was conflrmed at the
same meeting , the commlttco on police , lo
which it was referred , reporting fuvoraoly.
Clotting Illicit nt Mos.
All seemed satisfactory until a couple of
days later , when rumblings of dissatisfac
tion made themselves manifest. The coun-
cllmcn were besieged by C. M.
Schneider and members of the firm
of Hiloy Bros. , who protested against the
appointment of Mos , and at the same time
made direct and damaging charges against
him. As shown in the petition flled In the
district court , Mos was at the time of tlio
failure of the llrm of C. M. Schneider & Co.
in its employ , and later was the bookkeeper
for Hiloy Bros. The result was that the vote
whereby the appointment of Mos was con
flrmed was reconsidered at the meeting of
the council Tuesday night , and a special com
mittee of llvo was named to Investigate the
The motion to reconsider the vote was
made by Councilman Munro. Asked for an
explanation yesterday morning ho said :
"Since the continuation of the appointment
of Mos I have been called upon by both Mr.
Schneider and members of the llrm of Hiley
Bros. They have made some very damaging
charges against Mos , nnd laid everything
mean possible at his door. They accuse
him of being dishonest , nnd claim to be
ready to substantiate their statements.
With such charges hanging over the head of
an employe of the city I concluded that an
Investigation should bo' mado. The commlt
tco appointed will probably commence the
investigation tomorrow evening.
Ilucy i\lclcnco Hxpectcd.
"I anticipate that thcro will bo some very
racy developments In this caso. Mos said ho
was anxious for the investigation , and
claims to bo able to prove that the alleged
dishonesty and peculations on his part exist
on the other side , nnd that his accusers are
the guilty ones , and not he. From what he
says several more people and concerns will
bo Implicated and thcro is promised a decid
edly interesting time of it , nnd that sonic
very peculiar business methods will bo
shown up. "
Councilman Jacobson has been sought by
Mos' accusers to aid in securing tlio rescind
ing of the action whereby the appointment
was conflrmed. Ho said in speaking of the
matter : "Soon after the appointment was
conflrmed the ugly stories about him reached
my ears , and I called upon Schneider. His
statements were to the effect that Mos was
dishonest and totally unworthy of conll-
dcnvo. Ho charged that while Mos was in
the employ of Schneider & Co. that ho falsi
fied the books and appropriated funds belong
ing to the lirin. I asked him if such was the
case why did ho not prosecute him. Ho re
plied that ho did not do so on account of
Mos' family. I urged him to communicate
the facts to tlio council if ho knowth y
were true , and that they would bo investi
gated. Ho did net do this , however , but
said ho was ready at any tlmo to appear be
fore a commlttco nnd suomit the proofs.
MOH I'romlscit to Show Up Schneider.
"In company with Schneider I called on
Hiloy Bros.who have also been mentioned us
having grievances against Mos. Ho wns em
ployed by them us bookkeeper for some time ,
and they make about the sumo charges as
"I have also talked with Mr , Mos , and ho
courts an Investigation , and promises some
developments that will proveastoundcrs und
implicate others beside bchnuidcr. Ho nays
that the proof of dishonesty will bo found to
rest on other shoulders than his nftcr the
investigation , and ho will unearth and bring
to ttio piinllo gaze some very questionable
business methods practiced by certain par
ties in connection u ith tlio 11 nu of Schneider
& Co. during Its existence. "
Mr. Mos lias spoken with others regarding
the charges , and In each instance maintains
that ho Is prepared to prove that he is the
victim of hatred at the hands of Schneider ,
who docs not desire his presence hero in
Omaha. Ho promised to show that rotten
ness existed in the llrm of Schneider & Co , ,
and that some very sensational facts will ho
brought out iu this connection.
Mr. Mos has not yet made n"ny statement
for publication , but says he will produce all
of tlio evidence necessary to clear himself
when the Investigation is commenced.
Illi : Trlco ( ur llli Corn.
County Commissioner Williams has demon
strated that he is engaged in the kind nof
farming which has no calamity connected
Ho took a bunch of forty-three 2-year-old
steers to the South Omaha market
yesterday and had the satisfaction of
knowing that they were the nncst
lot on the market. They averaged 1,218
pounds each in weight , and ho received
f4.t > 3 per 100 , or tCG.80 per head. AU of ho
bunch were short twos with the exception of
four , which would not be two until August.
They were high grade Hurefords and Pur-
haniG , and a couple of Holsteius , the latter
the poorest ones Iu the bunch.
Mr. Williams maintains that thcro is
money In feeding stock , prrtlcularly if it is
the right kind and marketed nt the proper
time , .
The total cost of the bunch last December ,
when feeding begim , was $ lBa > . The stock
wns foil $125 worth of oil meal nnd 2WX )
bushels of corn. The commissioner figures
that his corn netted him directly 40' cents
per bushel , and as ho still has fifty-six hogs
that followed the cattle all winter , nnd that
now weigh over ! WO pounds each , ho is satis-
fled that the full returns will show better
than DO cents per bushel for his corn ,
SOLDIER BOYS AB CRIMINALS.
I'rlvnto Trod Brown Mny Ilo Indicted for
At almost every term of federal court In
Omaha for the past two or three years there
has been ono or more cases In which United
States soldiers-wore prosecuted for criminal
acts and offenses. A majority of the accused
have , been colored soldiers , nnd Forts Hob-
inson : and Nlobrara seem to have furnished
most of the cases. The grand Jury now In
session has found n bill against another
colored soldier , Private Fred Brown , who
Ispc charged with a deadly assault upon Trum
peter Warner at Fort Nlobrara. The case
will probably be called within a day or two ,
.is the witnesses now In the city from Fort
Nlobrara are wanted In the hearing of the
It Is stated by some of the witnesses that
the injured man came within something llko
a hair's breadth of losing his life In the
scrap , and it is probable that the accused
will bo tried for an attempt to commit mur
der. It seems that Brown and Warner had
quarreled over n game of billiards nnd after
n few angry words they parted. Later on
they met , and Brown renewed the quarrel
and Invited Warner to fight the mutter out.

TAUKS TOO MUCH T1MK.
Army Ofllcers Object to So Much C1 U Law
Thcro is considerable indignation among
army men over the treatment of Private
Johnson , colored' [ man , who was arrested
three months ago at Fort Robinson
upon a chargf of obtaining money
under false pretenses , and lodged in
the Douglas county jail to await trial.
Ttio grand jury passed upon his case but
failed to find sufficient evidence with which
to make a case anfl ho was dismissed. When
ho rcuorted at ( army headquarters for
duty , some of'i the ofliccrs were sur
prised to learn that ho had been lying in jail
for thrco months on the potty charge of ob-
taintnc money under fulso pretenses.
"Speakingof thcmatteryesterday a prom
inent ofliccr said > "It is a very singular
thing that a man should hare been brought
all the way to Omaha und held hero in jail
three months upon that which proved to be
no evidence ut'all. If the man had been
taken before a Justice of the peace or a
United States commissioner- when he was
flrst arrested , ho could have shown that
thcro was nothing in the case. This busi
ness of dragging soldiers away from their
posts and plaeiup > them in jail for months nt
a time upon potty charges is going to bo
looked into. There may bo n law that will
uphold the United States attorney in such
proceedings , but I doubt it , nnd the matter
is going to bo investigated , and that right
early , "
The recent change In the law makes it
necessary for all deputy marshals to take
their prisoners before the nearest commis
sioner or justice of the peace for a prelim
inary hearing is expected to provide the re
lief which this olllccr seems to think is
necessary in this connection.

" Ye gods 1 they don't wait for n man to got

Thcro was sorrow In tlio heart , emotion
In the voice , nnd nn expression of wild con
tempt in the eyes of a prominent Omaha
citizen yesterday ns ho nervously clutched n
printed circular In his hand and filled the
adjacent atmosphere with profanity. In his
vocal pyrotcchnleal display the was oblivious
of nil except the fact that he , llko many
citizens of Omaha nnd other western cities ,
had been seemingly buncoed by a prospec
tive World's fair hotel company.
In response to nn InqulrV from a Br.n re
porter , the citizen Implored secrecy ns ho
did not wish the calcium light of publicity
turned on to the fact that ho hud been the
victim of misplaced confidence In n World's
fair hotel that had proved an air castle with
an elevator running to every room.
The circumstances of the case , ns related
by this gentleman und several other Omaha
clearly indicates the uncertainty of reaping
returns for investments , , nt some World's
fair hotels "paid in advance. " and that
honeyed expectancy of economy sometimes
develops into u pickled disappointment of
extravagance in the end.
Tlmt Airy Aldino Hotel.
Several months ago Omaha and other
western . cities were flooded with circulars
announcing . that the Aldino hotel , at Sixty-
sixth street nnd Oglesby avenue , Chicago
cage . , would bo built on nn exclusive
and elaborate plan for the accommodation
of families visiting the fair. It was to bo on
a site of convenience in fact , almost within
the jaws of the main exposition entrance.
References galore were printed on the cir
cular. A schedule of rates was submitted.
The plans , ns proposed , were on tho-Amerlcun
nnd European order , both. You paid your
money nnd you took your choice ; but
some of those who swallowed the tempt
ing morsel of economy and remitted pay
ment for accomodations in advance
will in all prob.ibility purtako of
soup in copious draughts and with
heroic Indifference to financial dys-
> cpsia. It is said that tlio glittering
nduccments . of the first circular per
suaded many people throuphout the west ,
including about 100 citizens of this city and
vicinity , to remit casli payments in advance
for accommodations , as stipulated in the
circular. The unusually low r.itcs offered
was the prime cause of so many pconlo availIng -
Ing themselves of the 'golden opportunity' of
-Uuhblo Hurst In Bankruptcy.
Like a flash of lightning from a spotless
horizon , a second circular reached Omaha
yesterday. It was dated Chicago , May 2'J ,
und signed by the Aldine Hotel company.
This circular convoyed the startling in
telligence that "owing to the unprecedented
increase in the cost of material uad labor
and the immense outlay , etc. " the Aldino
hotel was a monument of bankruptcy.
With some consolation , the circular says
that it has been decided to pro
tect these who have remitted for ac
commodations during the World's fair nnd
therefore , the hotel company will place the
Aldino in the hands of Mr. Edwin O.
Lamphcre , who will push It to completion by
Juno 1. Those pjUrons who hold certificates
showing that they engaged rooms nnd bourd
In advance and paid for the same ,
will bo allowed 50 per cent of the amount
paid , by the now management. The other
50 per cent is not In It. The circular apolo
gizes for tlio complication of affairs and
"deeply regrets It , " but the chances are tlmt
the deepest regret is imbedded in the hearts
of the victims.
It Is estimated that fully $25,000 ,
and possibly more , has been paid to
the old management. The apologetic cir
cular blames the unfortunate state of affairs
on the unexpected advances in the price of
labor and material and the unexpected short-
aeo In capital to comploconstructionalthouKh
the final completion of the hotel on Juno 1
is guaranteed , at a loss of 50 percent to those
who advanced money for accommodations
and heavy loss to the projectors. In all
probability visitors to Chicago , who "hold
tlio sackl [ will brine away an Aldino hotel
brick as iPWorld's fair souvenir.

Ono of the Attraction ! of the I'ulr nnil
What IB to Ito Soon There.
CHICAGO , 111. , May 24. [ Special to THIS
" BEE. ] Really the most Interesting feature ,
the most kaleidoscopic panorama of this fair ,
Is down along the Midway the many-sided ,
many-colored , muny-tongued plaisancovitli ; _
its greasy Turks , "dressy" Japanese , bazoo-
blowing Arabians , jabbering Javanese ,
queer llttlo men nnd ponderous amazons of
Dahomey , and Its odd-costumed denizens of
all climes nnd conditions. It is all a deep
and interesting study from the Irish village
to the flower beds , and It is no free educa
tion , cither. None of these institutions
along the Midway are operated as
eleemosynary establishments. There
Is no more getting into "Cairo
street without a contribution of baksheesh
than thcro is obtaining admission tor the
camel through the proverbial needle's cyo.
It all costs money. You are not forced to p.iy
it. The 50 cents admission fee gives you u
sight of the biggest show for the money that
has been seen about these parts since the big
The Exposition company doesn't control
the Interior of these side shows , If It docs got
its "whack" of tlio receipts. The result is
that thcro are many so-called attractions
that wouldn't draw on their merits
any more than a porous plas
ter would pull n load of buy.
Uno of these Is Bro'r Billy Knox's beauty
show. First building to your right , opposite
the Irish village for you're bound to go ,
anyway and tlio sign is "International
Dress and Costume Exhibit. " Who isIs
"Billy" Knox ? A very uncommonly clover ;
fullovt a newspaper man. Knows how to
advertise. Opened up by having ono of his
beauties arrested ; an Austrian nobleman
nnd a German fair commissioner involved ,
and all that , A capital inaugural. "Billy"
wasn't in the newspaper business in
London , Now York and Chicago for
his health. Ho has the best loca
tion on the plaisanco. People Just full Into
It leaving their quarters in the ticket office :
and it Is ruining golden dollars Into the us-
tuto manager's coffers. There are a score sof
dizzy-looking "beauties , " purporting to bo
mthe types of the nations named on the
placards besldo each one. Thcro is at the
end a stage representing n Turkish harem
In full bloom. The occupants uro three
damsels who are passably good looking , re
docllning in voluptuous attitudes. Yokels
stand and gape at them for hours. They
have probably seen their best days
on lower Clark street. The Gre
cian woman is a sad spectacle :
to the idealist und the Cuban well , if the
shbeauties of Cuba look fifty years old and
Hihavo two sots of chin this beauty is a fair ,
representation. The Chinese and Japanese
women look like accurate types , and they
are really pretty. So Is the French peas-
ant. The American girl they , of course ,
are handsome , because where can't you find
a beautiful American girl I Then you pans
on and see a fair-haired Italian girl and 3a
dark-haired Norse woman , and you have had
enough of the beauty shown.
Not a patriotic Irishman will pass Blainoy
castle's door without a peep into the in-
I tcrior. The polite youth la green i lockings '
and breeches will welcome him at the gate ,
and the pretty colleen inside will sell him a
shlllalah if ho Is not cold as an Icicle. Ho
will also buy a chance In a lottery , the
mystic number of which Is In the possession
of I ady Aberdeen , It Is n phrase "contain
ing ! ' good advice tolroland"und if ho guesses
It ho gets the prize. Ho is also urged to buy
a pipe ; or something else. There's not much
to see , but no Celt , as has been said , can
afford to pass by the Irish village without
dropping his contribution.
There are plenty of catchpenny shows on
the plalsaneo. just ns there are meritorious
attractions llko the Hncenback menagerie ,
the villages of various nations. The
Chinese and Turkish theaters are all right
for people who llko that sort of attraction.
The other shows will receive attention later.

Itnllwny Surgeon * Aiinunl.
Dr. W. J. Gtttliraith of the Union Pacific is
up to his eyes with work connected with tlio
annual convention of the Order of Hallway
Surgeons which moots in this city May III ,
Juno 1 nnd 2. From replies received to his
circular letter it is thought that at least
l.HOO representative surgeons will bo in this
city during the days of the convention.
So largo a body is it that
it is out of the question to entertain the phy
sicians with either a banquet or carriage
drive , but the citizens of Omaha can show
their appreciation of the visit by decorating
their houses nnd throwing banners
across the principal streets , as some
slight recognition of the honor ac
corded Omaha in selecting the Gate city
as their meeting placo. Tlicso men wield a
great influcnco in the communities in which
they live and if properly treated will become
walking advertisements for the city.
After the labors of the convention two
trips have been arranged , ono to the Black
Hills via the lilkhorn , the other over the
Loop via the Union Pueiitc.
