In checking rates to conform with the
maximum rate law which was to have taken
effect August 1 , their labors have gene for
To the majority of thorn the action of
Chancellor Woolworth In asking an Injunc
tion restraining representatives of certain
roaili from putting In force the maximum
rate law was a complete surprise.
"I liavo never worked so hard as In the
last two weeks , " said 10. H. Wood , assistant
general freight agent of the Union
1'aclllc , "checking up the rates In order
that wo might have our tariffs practically
complete when tlio law took oltcct. The ac
tion of the court was telegraphed mo while
cnrotito homo , meeting me at some station
along the roiul. I had 'fired' ' llgurc.1 Into the
boys for their now tarlil sheets and had In
my grip the remaining figures for the last
tariff which wo would have Issued today.
And so the mountain labored and brought
forth a mouse.
"Instructions have been ftiuod to all
agents that the former order withdrawing
nil the old tariffs has been canceled anil
that the old rates will remain in force
pending the sett lenient of the turn affairs
have taken In the courts. "
Mr. George Crosby , general freight agent
of the Burlington , sang sweet and low ,
"Homo Again from a Foreign Shore. " when
the representative of TUB Ben called at his
ofllco In liurllngton headquarters.
"Our labor hasn't amounted to very much , "
said the shrewd manipulator of rates for the
Ilurlington , uln view of the action of the
stockholders. Wo have notified our agents
that the old rates are restored and wo will
continue to do business under them until the
courts decide the constitutionality of tlio
maximum rate law. "
, . There was an elongated smllo upon Gen
eral Manager lloldretro's face when the re
porter asked If ho know of tiny more Injunc
tions to follow those already prayed for and
"Heally I can't " ho "
say , replied , "although
ns everybody seems to bo in an enjoining
humor Omaha ought to take a hand and un
join something. "
"Theiulheru Is no relief from the Lincoln
differential ! " asked the newspaper man.
"Not under existing circumstances.
Omaha Is all right. She is on an equality
with Lincoln , and her trade would seem to
indicate that she Is big enough to take care of
herself with even a dilturcntlal against
Vongcnnco of the People.
"Will not the action of the railroads
call down a greater vengeance from the people
ple than If the rate law had been tried on its
merits and then declared unconstitutional ? "
"I think , " replied the general manager in
a relloctlvo mood , "that the people will
loam to treat railroads inoro lilto private
business enterprises than m.tho manner
heretofore , They have ntrhts as well as the
public. Whhe the action of the stockholders
was n surprise It shows how closely the
moneyed men of the corporations have fol
lowed the law. Ilcyond this there is little to
say. The courts will have to pass upon the
legality of the measure. It is beyond my province -
" inco to say what their Until findings will bo. "
Ono thing Is certain , however. Somebody
has broken faith , for It was the agreement
of the presidents that the law should go into
effect and ; iftcr n full and fair trial , then If.
the law was as vicious as represented the
roads could conscientiously swear to the decrease -
crease In earnings and ask for relief.
Several days airo , it was intimated that
Hon. J. M. Woolworth had gone to Boston at
the instance of President Perkins to consult
with the stockholders with a view to bring
ing such action as was commenced Saturday
in Judge Uundy's court , notwithstanding
vhat President Perkins had obligated him
self to put the law In Torco on the Burling
ton system , .ludgo Woolworth on the other
hand states that ho went to Boston on a
wire from several of the stockholders.

At the meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners ycstorday forenoon , the princi
pal business on hand was the hearing of the
charges against Constaolo Alan Dailoy , who
Is accused of being 5 non resident of the
West Omaha precinct , where ho was elected ,
nnd willful maladministration In otllco.
Three witnesses wcro examined at the
morning session , the effort of the prosecu
tion , which was conducted by Assistant
County Attorney Troup , being diivctod to
an attempt to provo non residence in the
In the afternoon , County Clerk ISackett
was called , nnd reail from the record to
show that D.iiloy was appointed constable
for Union precinct in Jniui.iry , IS'JJ ' , 'nnd
served until the election last November ,
when Frank Knight was elected but failed
to qualify. Dailoy did not lllo any subse
quent or additional bond.
Assistant County Attorney Day was called
and a wrangle ensued over the admission of
evidence to the affect that the defendant
now has two charges of embezzlement pend
ing against him in the criminal courts.
The evidence was ruled out , as no convic
tion had yet occurred on cither rhargn , nnd
Justice of the Peace Edgcrton was called to
tlio stand. Ho did not think D.iilcy was n
resident of West Omaha precinct , or had
been since election. Before election Dailoy
told witness that If ha could get the iiomlua-
tioi 1 1 West Omaha ho would run nnd tnko
his o mnccs. Ho was there election day ,
nnd witness had seen him in the
precinct but once sinco. Ho never
know of his having lived in the precinct ,
although well acquainted with nearly nil the
residents there. Ho could not say where
the defendant had boon sleeping for the past
two weeks , but know that ho formerly lived
on Sixteenth street , in Omaha.
On cross-examination ho said ho was as
positive as a man could bo that Dailoy was
not a resident of the precinct and would
swear positively that Daily had not had n
residence there for the last year and a half.
The state rested , and the defense moved
to dismiss , but the board advised that side
to put in its ovidcnco if it had any.
Constable Dailey was called , and swore that
his residence was West Omaha precinct and
that ho had lived there for nearly four years.
Ho had voted there for that time and had
not voted anywhere else.
He testified on cross-examination that ho
was n single man and occasionally slept down
town , bolng in Omaha quite a little , .and
lodged on Charles street , where ho had a
room. Ho resided with different people in
different places. Ho admitted that hq was
n resident of West Omnlia when ho applied
for appointment as constable in Union pre
cinct and was appointed. Ho declined to
sny where ho had lived for tlio last month
When required to answer , ho said ho had
lived in West Omaha a part of the time , nnd
a part of it ho hadn't. When required testate
state when and where ho had slaved in West
Omaha in that time , ho figured it out that
he stayed ono night at Shannon's and ono
night at Tlotz park , nnd that was all the
time ho had stayed there in tha last month.
Frank Shannon , justice of the peace for
the West Omaha procinot , has disentangled
himself from his difficulties as far ns ho
could by handing in Ills resignation , which
was accepted by the Board of Commissioners

The deceased was returning from his dally

According to Ernest Ktirnatz , who resides

lent as the train was going nt the usual rate

The horses attached to Goos' wngon were

Clav M. Greene and J. Cheovor Goodwin's
now spectacular comic opera , "Africa , " in
which Mr. George Thatcherlind his operatic
extravaganza company are appearing , comes
to ] Boyd's theater tills evening for an en
gagement of two nights.
"Africa" was written expressly for this
organization , the peculiar talents of. some of
the principals being considered in the crea
tion of the characters in the piece. The
reputation of the librettists is too well es
tablished to leave any doubt as to the in
terest , originality and lucidity of the story ,
which is said to give any number of oppor
tunities to those having in charge the em
bellishment of the main theuio. ' 'Africa" is
unusually rich from a scenic point of view ,
all the settings from the six scenes being
from the brush of ono of America's foremost
artists in this line Mr. John A. Thompson
of the Hollis Street theater , Boston while
the costumes , of which there nro over 300 ,
nre strictly in Keeping with the spectacular
nature of the production as n whole. Add
to this any amount of bright , catchy music
and n piosenting company the like of which
lias never before boon seen In a presentation
of this kind , and you have an entertainment
that is certain to find favor with tlio masses.
The company that is appearing in the cast
of "Africa" numbers
over seventy people ,
including the heretofore unheard-of number
of twenty-six principals , most of whom are
established favorites in this city. This
feature alone moans an enormous outlay on
the part of the promoters of the enterprise ,
Messrs. Thatcher , Ulch and Harris , but
believing that the public would appreciate
their efforts to give them something now
nnd meritorious in every respect they did
not , hesitate to incur the expense of carrying
so protentions un organization. Seats are

TILLY AS A MIND KEADER.
Great I'rnllcloiicy n * n I'roTessnr nT Unlit-
Colonel Tilly Is at present engaeod In the
enjoyable pastitno of a mad race with the
colony of river front squatters. Just at this
time the colonel Is several lengths In the
load , but the homo stretch Is not yet en
tered , However , the ocolonel is the prime
favorite In the bookings nnd ho-will prob
ably distance the festive squatters , who are
Those squatters who have entered Into an
agreement with the city to remove their
present habitations and level their shanties
to the ground are those with whom
the colonel Is contesting. These
particular squatters nro not at nil choice
about tlio location to which they remove and
are willing to set down their huts at almost
any convenient place where thuro is suf
ficient unoccupied territory. It causes them
but little worriment whether a pleco of
ground they covet is private property or a
portion of a public thorough faro. They huvo
never yet contracted th'o habit of paying
rent , and show no desire to cultivate the
acquaintance of tlio rental agent. About all
they seem to care to accomplish is to capture
from the city the $ ' , ' 0 or $23 that is to ha paid
them when they remove. They have no idea
of ceasing to be squatters.
Colonel Tilly has made a study of squatter
character and it is said that he can tell by
the twinkle of a squatter's eye just what Is
passing through his mind. The other day
the colonel espied one of the colony and , like
Frank Hansom with the buffalo , ho looked
him in the oyo. Immediately the colonel
know that the squatter had evil intentions
toward the community. Ho read in that
cj'c that the squatter was preparing to pull
up stakes down on the river front and the
first piece of unoccupied territory ho came
to would drop his shanty there and remain
until again compelled to niovoon. Colonel
Tilly thought to himself : "Here I am the
inspector of buildlttgfi of this metropolis of
tha commonwealth of Nebraska. My duty is
to the taxpayers. I'll just drop suddenly
like onto that squatter and frustrate his ill-
laid plans. " The colonel did so , and ho
directed Uncle Jerry Snowdon , one of his inspectors
specters , to pay n visit to Shantytown nnd
watch the movements of that squatter with
tlio give away eye. Uncle Jerry did so , nnd
lie found that Colonel Tilly is a mind reader
from away back. The squatter had his
miserable excuse for a house on skids and
was iu the act of seeking a now loc.ition.
Ho could not tell where ho was going , ns ho
did not know. Ho proposed to bo ono less of
the colony , and by a change of location
hoped to secure the $2,5 the city had voted
him to remove. Uncle Jerry informed him
that a permit to move a building was neces
sary and that Colonel Tilly issued them at
so much per is.sue.
The bewildered and half angry squatter ,
accompanied by his interesting family and
all their friends , p.ud a visit to the city hall
and dropped in on Clerk Carter in the build
ing inspector's olllce. Mr. Carter is always
interesting , and for an hour previous to
Colonel Tilly's arrival ho entertained his
visitors with the story of his visit to Windsor
ser castle in years gene by when ho bore ono
of the proudest titles in all Europe.
When Colonel Tilly arrived ho managed
by a liberal application of bad English ,
Sioux nnd the mother tongue to convoy to
the squatter the information that the afore
said squatter should remain in his present
location until ho displayed n lease of n picco
of private ground and that this thing of people
ple blocking the public highways by taking
up their residences there must cease. The
snuattor submitted and is still ono of tlio in
teresting river front colony.
Colonel Tilly is causing a strict watch to
bo kept on the squatters nnd they will noj
bo permitted to settle wherever they desire.

hear and bo heard upon the action of the
division in preferring charges against Grand
Chief Itamsoy , which has been the talk in
telegraph circles for n week.
The charges censuring Kamsoy wcro road
and the action of Secretary Gilliland upheld
in withholding the books nnd papers from
the grand secretary pending an investiga
tion , After discussing the situation in nil
its phases it was the sense of the meeting
that it adjourn until next Sunday , when a
Jotter from D , II , Gearheart , assistant grand
chief chairman of the executive committee ,
is anticipated bearing on the matter.
Secretary Gillilaml , in order to sot nil
doubts nt rest as to his position , offered a
resolution that the mass mooting of tolcg-
raphcrs conlinuo their adherence to the
Order of Hallway Telegraphers the fight
bolng made on Kamsoy not to bo construed
to nnvo any bearing on the order whlcn ho
considered bettor than any now orpanization
that could bo formed. The motion was
adopted and the mooting adlourncd.
