Sam Hutchlnson occupied uosltion as
"advance ticket seller" for Forcpaugh's
circus until yesterday , but the circus has
gene off nnd left him to occupy a cold cell In
the Council Bluffs city Jail while another
man , leas full of guile will bo put In to take
his placo. Ho was busily engaged yesterday
In selling tickets outside of the grounds , and
Officer Murphy was tracking him for the
purpose of seeli.g whotnur the rumors that
were floating about with reference to his
ctookodncss were correct. Upon selling a
ticket to n country man he received a $10
bill and gave the fanner his change in sil
ver. The farmer called him down when ho
had time to count the money , tolling him
the change was short. Hutuhlnson ad
mitted tno shortnge , and passing out
$1.50 started to pass on. Again the farmer
kicked , and at this Murphy nabbed the fel
low. Ho was still short M.W ) , according to
the farmer's statement. When searched nt
the jail ho had $42 in his pocket.
If reports are correct It may bo a long time
before Hutchlnson will bo able to resume his
connection with the circus. Indeed , the
prospects for his remaining right hero for
some time are so good that the manage
ment of the circus hasannounccd its intention
to let him shift for himself. It now looks as
though Hutchlnson will have to answer to n
more serious charge than merely bamboozl
ing a rustic out of a little money. It will bo
remembered that about two weeks ago a
man named Baxter was bound over to the
grand Jury for robbing John Metcalf of
a lot of money and diamonds about
three years ago. That he was hound over Is
largely dud to the testimony of John Stoilcn ,
who lives in tlio vicinity of Big Lake and
bus a boat which he sometimes operates on
the river Stcilcn stated that on the night
when the robbery took place lie was em
ployed to row thr o nion across tlio river to
Omaha , and that during thu passage one of
them joked Baxter because "the woman
pulled the veil off his face. " Baxter were n
mnsk while the operation of robbing the
Motcalfs was going on , but Mrs. Metcalf
pulled the mask from his face. Stcilcn iden
tified Hutchlnson yesterday beyond a Uoubt
as one of Baxter's companions on that fate

To the Editor of TUB BHE : "Whom the
gods would destroy They first make mad. "
In the light of the truth of this old Grecian
maxim that has como down as a prophecy
through -1,000 years of human endeavor and
failure , can wo see anything else than the
doom of the old line life insurance com
panies ? It was the frenzy of madness that
prompted them to till three columns of Tin :
SUNDAY BKI : with attacks upon the liberal
methods of insurance nnd savings repre
sented by the bond and investment compa
nies , methods that luivo cut deeply into the
sources of profit of their gold-lineel whirl
pools Where millions nnd billions of dollars
of the people's money has been sucked in
and sunk never to be returned. Of course
we know that they are better able to make
attacks financially than we are to
defend them , for they have millions
of dollars to give to newspapers where wo
have nothing , but wo presume , knowing the
fairness and strict business methods of Tin :
BICE , that they are not charged uny less per
line than wo are , and wo know that wo pay
our good hard cash for every line wo have
printed. But the contrasts in these columns
tell their own and the whole story , and the
wider the publicity given and the oftener
told the stronger will bo the hold on public
favor of the Perpntual Maturity Bonding
company of Council Bluffs. Let me call at
tention to some of these contrasts. In the
first column of tholr three column article
they say :
"Tho Perpetual says the first .TOO bonds will
bo paid in consecutive orocr. That will
require an accumulation of (00,000 ( , in blocks
of $1,000. Suppose the company has 1,000
continuous Investors paying $1,000 a mouth ,
or 12,000 a year. It would take the holder of
bond UOO just twenty-five years to reach a
divvy. Meanwhile , the managers will have
pocketed f75.000 in cold cash. "
Now what would be the result if you substitute
stitute- the New York Life , your especial
contributor of doubts nnd dollars ? Take. 800
lontino policies of § 1,000 each , payable In
twenty years , live years less than they have
figured as the possible period of maturity of
our 300 bonds. It will bring a rovcnuo to
our company , they suy , of $75,000. The
"rake off" on the same business for only
twenty years for the Now York Llfo will bo
a ittlo trlflo of men hum ! red
anil Jlfttj ttioiisoiitl ilullari ! The policy holders
In both organizations pet precisely the same
returns , $1,000 each , upon the maturity of
each company's obligations , with the differ
ence that wo take from the policy holder
about 1,000 per cent less "rake off" In the
way of costs than our competitors. It
cost the old line company , for a
period of twenty-six years , an average pet
year of $8 for fl.OOO to pay all death
claims and indemnities of every nature ,
out they exacted from the policy holder an
average of M2 a year per fl.OOO , while in the
Perpetual Maturity Bonding company it
would cost only $15 a year , only ? a of which
could bo used for expenses. But it would
require twenty-live years to mature the
aoo bonds only if there were no lapses and
no growth , two absolutely impossible con
This question of lapses is one that all old
.lino organizations fight shy of. It Is tholt
citadel that must bo jealously guarded as
the very principle of life , for it is tlioli
chief source of profit. In twenty-six years
in throe of the big eastern insurant's states ,
it poured into the coffers of these companies
over two bllllvii nine hundred intllloi
ilollnri from deluded contributor :
who never got back a cent. In the Perpet
ual Maturity Bonding company every cenl
of the lapses und all fines and transfer ;
go to the payment of the bondholders , ami
not a cent of It for expenses ,
There is another feature that Is not to be
spoken' of , either , for it is an equally
delicate subject , and that is the incon
colvably vast sums pouring constantly Intc
these scaled money boxes of the oast. A
rough Inquiry was made a short time ago bj
a curious gentleman for ail estimate of the
amount of money that went out of Couuei
Blufls each month for the payment of life
Insurance premiums , and ho found that ll
approximates between $50,000 and $7j.OOO
with perhaps three times as much fron
Omaha. How much of it over conns hack
The very fact that this gigantic and con
ccrted attack Is made upon the bondinf
companies indicates their importance , aiu
the fact that they are withstanding it indi
catcs their strength. There Is no olhei
kind of financial Institution in the work
that could withstand twenty-four hours tin
attacks that have been midu : lor month !
upon the bonding and low premium invest
ment companies , a sample of which was tin
Sabbath day assault upon the Perpetual o
Thu principle of jhoip , quickly-maturing
Insurance has como to stay , and will no

upou It. They do not chnrgo us with falllni
to perform any of our obligations. They d
not say that wo have fulled to pay a bom

seems to bo that something like this mlgh

Uov. U. January , pastor of the colored
Baptist church on the corner of First
avcnuo and Thirteenth street , has moro
faith in savings hanks and less in the stockIng -
Ing system of making financial deposits than
ho used to have , and it is Larry Mostly who
has the responsibility of bringing about his
change of heart. By close calculating ho
and his wife had managed to lay by ? 73 for a
rainy day. It was all in depreciated silver ,
and as they had some doubts about the safety
of entrusting tholr precious wealth to tlio
hands of a banner , they dug a hole in ono
corner of their collar , placed the silver in It.
and carefully covered it from sight. Last
Thursday tbcj wcro attending a colored
Baptist meeting in Dohany's old opera house ,
and when they reached homo they
found that during their absence some one
had made a tour of inspection through their
house , turning everything topsy turvy in the
s.arch ; for valuables. On goiug down to the
cellar they found that the place where the sil
ver had been hidden had been discovorcd and
the money was gone. Some of the neigh
bors said they had seen a colored man named
Larry Mosby leaving the house during the
afternoon. The suspicion that Mosby might
bo the guilty party was strengthened ma
terially by the fuel of his having money
enough to pay several of his bills , a thini ;
that had not happened before for a long
timo. IIo was accordingly arrested yester
day morning on the charge ot grand larceny.
Ho had about $0 of the stolen money in his
possession at the time of his arrest. Ho will
have a hearing in police court this morning.

A Vlrifliilii City Character.
"Thoro was a queer character out in

Laughing Tom. Ho couldn't say a word
without laughing , and ho usually prefaced -
faced what ho hnd to say with it series ol
chuckles that were the most infectious
"There are hundreds of stories oi
which Tom is'tho hero , but ono there ie
in particular which I have never seen

poker with a miner. The btakes wore
small , but they wcro big to the playon-
thotubolves , as they represented all thoii

Tom slip a card. IIo said nothing until
the laughing rirodigy opened the jacket- ,

The attendance at the opening of the
eighth biennial tournament of the Western
Shooting league , while It did not fully meet
expectations , was oncouraring under the
circumstances. One of the principal reasons
for a comparatively small attendance Is duo
to the fact that many of the Cnicngo'Schuot- '
zcnvcrclns are holding an International
shoot at Chicago during the World's ' fair.
This was possibly Inspired by Jealousy
because Omaha came out ahead two years
ago when the question of selecting n plnco to
hold the next tournament was settled In
favor of this city. Anottier reason Is the
general business depression prevailing
everywhere. Although the outlook for a
successful tournament financially is rather
gloomy at present n feeling prevails that
success will yet bo attained before the last
day on the program has passed.
Certain it is that any partial failure can
not bo attributed to the Omaha Sehuotzcn-
voreln or Its committees. As previously
mentioned , they have worked indefatigably
to perfect all the details of the arrange
ments and labored earnestly to innko It an

The line of march was from the head
quarters on Farnam street to Sixteenth ,
thence to the Webster street depiK whore a
special train on the Missouri Pacific was in
waiting to transport all to the Schuetzen
paik. Hero the riflemen wcro formed iu a
circle and wero'addressed iu a few words by
Hon. George Helmrod , fest president , who
welcomed "tho visitors and added that the
local vcrclu had worked under great difficul
ties on account of financial depression , but
the speaker hoped that all would enjoy
themselves and that on the visitors return

mind the fact that Omaha had done the very

announced by the firing of a cannon by Mr.
Frank Heft of this city. From that time

The riflemen were not even disturbed by
the first announcement by Schuctzcnmeistcr
Muck that Louis Sichcr of St. Louis had
won and been awarded the first medal on
this target , making 123 points out of a possi
ble 200 points.
Tills was considered very fair shooting.
The distance was'200 yards and shooting at
this particular target was difficult. The
second medal wds claimed by a resident of

to zero when the Chicago and St. Louis men
alternately wcro decorated with emblems

VOORMS' ' VIEWS ON REPEAL
[ CONTINUED p o TIRST rAou. |
the frco coinage bill , claiming a surer
dollar was the equal of a gold dollar. In
illustration ho related his own experience
when ho nns Journeying to Washington. Ho
had ontorcd Into conversation with A banker
who had denounced the silver dollar as a lie.
It purported to ho worth M , when It vras
really only worth but OB cents. Presently
the porter came along and do.nanaod $3 fern
n berth , and the banker , going down into his
pockets , pulted forth two silver dollars. Ho
( Mr. Lane ) was so disgusted at the banker
passing a llo that ho would have nothing
moro to say to him. [ Laughter. ] A silver
dollar was worth 100 cents In any bank , In
any store In thlt country. Ho was hero for
frco coinage and might God forgot him U ho
forgot his duty , [ Applause. ]
Nevada' * Plant
Mr. Nowlnuds of Nevada voiced the
demand of his region when ho vigorously
advocated the free ooiuago of silver. There
wcro , said ho , two aspects of this question
the industrial and financial. America was
the great sliver producing country of the
world , England wa the great gold accumu
lating nation and was becoming the great
gold producing nation. Our legislation
should not bo favorable to England's accumu
lation of gold to the detriment of America ,
Should wo Increase the value of England's
gold by the destruction of Its only com
petitor ! England used her power In build
ing up her own nation ; the United States
was spending her money building up other
nations. lApolnuse.l The United States
was assenting while England was acting. If
the United States went to a gold basis It
would have to gat the gold , place it In vaults
place sentinels around it. ana resort to these
measures. When the country draws Its
support silver would bo gone forever.
Mr. Bynum , In advocating the Wilson bill ,
said , unquestionably , the vast majority of
the poopio thought the Sherm in law was re
sponsible for the evils described by the
president. Since the passage of the act the
price of silver had gene steadily down. Uy
this the government was losing $10,000,000 a
year. Gold was being exported lu largo
sums. Ho eulogized the action of Secretary
Carlisle for his refusal to Issue bonds. Ho
did not bcllovo a vote would bo lost under
the threat that a man would lose his seat
who voted for the Wilson bill. Time had
como when subterfuge should bo driven from
these halls and judgment and reason
restored. It was said silver had appreciably
fallen In value during the past twenty
years , because during that time it
had been under lire. There might bo
some truth In that assertion. The country
could not open its mints to frco coinage
when the mints of other nations were closed
against sliver. This country could dccidn on
no ratio that would glvo a Hxod value to sil
ver. Free silver at this time would bo the
hardest blow that could bo struck at the
metal. Frco coinage would ruin our trade
and a full in the value of money would mean
n fall in the value of the money In which the
workingmen are paid. Should free coinage
bo decided upon , tic would bid farewell to
any hope of reform.
I'rutcst Aculnst Repent.
Mr. Hepburn opposed the repeal of the
Sherman law. He protested against the
shifting process of legerdemain by which the
democrats attempted to place the responsi
bility of the repeal on republican shoulders
nnd make the republicans admit the Sher
man bill contained all the iniquities which
the democrats charged It did. [ Applause. ]
The banks , boards of trado. chambers of
commerce , the moneyed institutions aid not
rule the business of the country. Their
business began where the business of the
producer ended. Ho. Believed the Sherman
act in Us operation was beneficial at all
tunes and it was not harmful today. Tlio
true way to solve the financial question waste
to compel , by Judicious legislation , the bal
ance of trade to turn in our favor. Let us
not buy abroad ; lot us patronize less the
labor Holds of other lands and moro of our
own. , [ Applause. ] Let us , by judicious
measures , Increase the merchant marino ;
let us secure by proper methods , of subsidy
or bounty , the production of all the
suear wo need. [ Applause. ] All bankers
were monomotulllsls and they recognized
Mr. Cleveland as one. The banks
wcro the power. The press assumed to
speak for the country and assumed to say
the people made the demand for the repeal
of the Sherman net. Ho know of but one
representative who had received a petition
asking for a repeal. The republicans were
asked to admit that all the evils aflhuting
the country came from this law. For one ho
would not do so.
Mr. Jones of Virginia opposed the uncon
ditional repeal of the purchasing clause and
favored frco coinage. The existing condi
tions ho attributed not to the Sherman act ,
but to the McKinley act.
The house then took a recess until 8
o'clock , but only after an agreement that
during the remainder of the week the hour
of meeting should bo 10 o'clock.
After the recess Mr. Ellis of Kentucky
spoke in favor of frco coinage , and severely
criticised the position taken by his colleague ,
Mr. McCreary , upon the euestion. [ The po.
sition was that the United States should re.
peal the Sherman act , and then refer to an
international tribunal the ratio at which sil-
vorshould bo coined. He objected to the divis
ion of the question. If the matter were
to bo referred to an international tribunal
why not refer also to it the repeal of the
Sherman law ? The passage of the Wilson
bill meant the discontinuance of the furthci
coinage of silver. If the gentleman's con.
stituonts justified that kind of legislation
his ( Mr. Ellis ) constituents did not. The
Sherman law ( poor though it was ) was the
only obstacle which stood between bimetal ,
lisin nnd monometallism.
Mr. McKalf ? . democrat , from Maryland
spoke against the free coinage of silver. Nc
nation , oven ns great a nation as this , was
independent of the world.
Mr. Cooper , democrat , from Indiano
stated the country was very impatient , bin
ho believed the medicine sought to bo glvoi
by the Wilson bill , instead of curing the
patient , would assist the disease.
Do l'ore t'H Ilurk 1'loturo ,
Mr. DeForest , democrat , from Cor.noctl
cut , said there uhould bo no opposition fron
anv source whatever to the repeal of tin
purchasing clause of the Sherman lav
under existing circumstances. The ncccs
stty for that repeal is so clearly written 01
the face of public distress , the demand foi
it is so distinctly heard in the voice o
the general calamity that it wouh
seem that no partisan rai.cor , no in
dividual hobby , no speculative theory , in
merely selfish personal scheme or scutlona
Interest would dare to obstruct it by th
slightest obstacle or the least delay. Tin
cry for this relief came up not so much fron
the rich and powerful , not so much from tli
bankers and the capitalists as from th
htimblo poor , from tlio worthy and in
dnstrioua masses. In response to thisappcal
the president had convened this special congress
gross for this special purpose. All the vus
business interests of the union , tottering 01
the vurgo of destruction , believing Urn
through congress , nnd this means alone , the
could bo resoucd , were imploringly holdln
out their hands for succor. Why should i
not ho granted immediately , uncoiiditior
ally , without hesitation )
Mr. Arnold , democrat , from Missouri , d <
niod there wus any condition in the countr
to justify the demonetisation of sllver.whlc
would follow the repeal of the Sherman lav
There was uo du'aund for this action. Th
farmers and workingmeu of this countr
hud no reason to envy the condition of th
farmers and workingmen of tlio other cout
tries who had discarded silver.

Continuing , ho said , a few years ago there
wcro In congress a few nondescript members
who called themselves "protection demo
crats. " IIo predicted after the next elec
tion , the monomotalllst democrats would find
themselves with the protection democrats
either at homo or on the republican side.
Ho said If Ijo were called upon to clollno
"congress" ho would define it as a court of
appeals from the decision of common people.

that action would not bo the action of the
majority. And by that majority of
democracy ho proposed to stand. What

A FAMOUS STEAMBOAT BAOE.
The Snfoty-Vulvo Ilt'ld Uown by a Husky
The famrms race between the Hanni
bal City and the Ocean Spray occurred
in 1859 , nays the Globe-Democrat. Prior
to this race the Ocean Spray hud splen
did records. Tlio race was from St.
Louis to Keokuk. The early part of the
race was very close , and the excitement
was immense' . When Hearing Bissell's
Point the Ocean Spray found the Han
nibal City passing her. The mate on
the Ocean Spray , ono Davis , becoming
desperate , ordered the head of a barrel
of turpentine to be knocked in. His men
ware then ordered to dip the wood in
this turpentine before putting it in the
furnace , the object being to quickly in
crease the steam pressure. The Ocean
Spray was supposed tD carry only
100 pounds of steam. but
Davis thought that by "putting
another negro on the safety valve" ho
could run the pressure up to 200 pounds
and distance his rival. In carrying the
dripping wood to the furnace the track
became saturated with turpentine ,
which caught fire from the open furnace.
The ilntnes quickly reached the barrel.
An attempt was made to throw the
barrel overboard , but it exploded and
the burning oil neing scattered all
around , the boat was soon a mass ol
Scott Matson was captain on the
Hannibal City. Ho was a bravo and
generous man , and in this instance
those two qualities made his name
famous. Notwithstanding the imminent
dnncrer , ho ran his boat alongside the
burning ono and resncd every person on
hoard. Davis , the mate of the burned
boat , was afterward convicted and sent
to the penitentiary for Htich gross
violation of the rules of safety. Ho
was later pardoned.
Survival of a Strange Custom.
On July l.'t of this year , as on July 1.1
of every year since the thirteenth cen
tury , the inhabitants of the province of
Bnrotous , in Franco , including tlio
mayors of three communes , performed a
curious ceremony in expiation of a crime
their ancestors committed moro than 500
years ago. In these early days tlio people
ple of Uarotous fell upon" the poopio of
Roncal , in Spain , just across the border ,
and massacred thousands of men , women
and children. Today their descendants
humiliate themselves before the llou-
calcso as a token of sorrow and rogrot.
Punctually at ! ) o'clock In the morning
the ceremony began. The Burotous dig
nitaries , escorted by an armed detachment -
mont , stood at the frontier. A. peasant ,
hearing a red pennant as a symbol of
justice , was at their hide. At tno stroke
of the hour the French mayors ad
vanced , wearing their scarfs of olllcoand
preceded by a peasant currying a lance ,
with a white punnon as a llug of truce.
Behind there followed the peasantry of
Baretous , some loading three white

The Spaniards planted theirs on French
soil , then laid it across the French
weapon. Ono of the French mayors
stretched his hand ahovo the cross thus
formed. Tlio Spaniard did the samo.
Then they repeated the formal oath and
all present swore to nhaorvo it ,

said the Spanish mayor. His escort 11 cd
oil their guns toward the French terri
tory. Tno three white heifers were next
turned over to the Spaniards. The two
parties then dined together at the ex
pense of the Spaniards and a paper was
drawn up , which all signed.
Formerly the blood tribute took the
