Union Pacific Invites Other Boada to Meet
Its Out
Reduction of from One-Fourth to One.
Half Mntto In the Unto of Welt
Hound Shipment ! from the
Missouri Jtlvcr.
Realizing the results which attach to the
occupancy of territory by right Its own , the
Union Pacific , following out the aggressive
policy which It has recently erected , will , on
July 1C , reduce westbound rates from the
Missouri river to Montana and Idaho com
mon points , and bring that section of the
country In closer touch than It has ever been
with Missouri river gateways.
When the Union Pacific put Into effect the
present rates to Utah common points , the
western railroad world wondered at the bold
ness of the step , and It was some time before -
fore competitors were able to realize the
exact Import of the situation. The rates
were met , however , and some adjustment
was made which had a tendency to even
lower the rates promulgated by the Union
Pacific. But In the conference -which ensued
upon the Union Pacific basis the railroads of
the west fell Into line and the "overland"
bils ns erected prevailed , with minor modi
fications to suit certain conditions that have
bean In existence ever since a railroad opened
up the northwest nnd brought It Into touch
with the cast ,
For some time past , really ever since the
Utah rates went into effect on the ten classes ,
the traffic officials of the Union Pacific felt
that their position could not be considered
certain until rates In the whole northwest
touched by their company had been brought
down to a common basis , and they pro
ceeded to equalize the tariffs on the ten
classes. It was hard work , for modifying
conditions which had an Important bearing
on the general basis decided upon constantly
recurroJ In checking over the now rates.
Finally , however , a line of reductions was
reached and an order was given to place In
effect the now tariff , which came from the
printers yesterday and which will on July
1C become effective , six days' notice of re
duction being necessary for the Interstate
Commerce commlmlon.
In accordance with the tariff thus pre
pared , rates on the date above mentioned ,
from the Missouri river to points In Idaho ,
Pocatello , cast , couth and north , and points
In Montana south of Dillon will be aa follows :
1 2 3 < 5 n b c d e

Commodity rates follow the classes In the
general reduction , which brings the Missouri
river Into closer proximity thai ever before
with the trade of the greater northwest. The
first list as seen to Pocatello , cast , north ant ]

In talking to Assistant General Frelgh
Agent Wood of the Union Pacific ns to th
reason for the reduction , ho said It was dente
to put the territory of the Union Pacific upoi
equality with the adjacent territory. Here
tofore the Union Pacific had been malntalnln ;
higher rates to Montana and Oregon thai
to Intermediate points , and It was for th
purpose of making all rates equal , dlstanc
considered , that the changes were decide
upon ,
Not only will the packers of South Omahc

Iron men and nil classes of wholesalers bo a !

bring them In consequence in closer com
mmiloii with the merchants of the terrltor
thus vitally affected.

Forty-three deputy assessors have been
wondering why they have not received war
rants In paymen of their labors In assessing
property In Douglas county during May and
June. Their principal ? were paid a total
of $2,300 , but not a cent was voted by the
board to pay the deputies.
The county commissioners have il.tvjvered
what may prove a serious flaw In the claims
which the deputy assessors are wttlng up as
a basis for their demand to be paid eomo of
the county's money.
The board has been bothered annually to de
termine how near the assessors come to earn-
g the money represented by their bills. Tlieso
Ills increase from year to year , while at the
aino time the annual valuation of property
n Douglas county has been growing less.
iVhlle the phortagc on valuations this year
cached several millions , It was found that
lie bills of the assessors were $1.000 In ex-
ess of these for 1891. This catiwd even a
loser scrutiny of the bills than usual and
overal commissioners express the view that
t may bu necessary to compel the deputies
o prove that they actually did the work for
hlch they charge. The bills of the deputies
'or ' this year amount to $7,522.CO.
It has been discovered that aelde from the
eputles In the First and Fourth wards and
South Omaha , only a few have
ver qualified , or If they have , no record has
> een left with the county clerk , nor has he
dmlnlstercd an oath to these men. It Is
nderstood that .the manner In which the
srassors will try and get around this defect
111 be to claim that they had the right to
dmlnlster the oath to their deputies.
Several years ago the board had this legal
Ifficulty before It and In the opinion of Judge
tenbcrg It Is something of a question
.vhcther . assersors who did not comply with
his law are entitled to their pay. This
fleets at least $5,000 of these claims.
From the records It appears that In no
: ase will the board be called on this year to
ay as large n family for making assessments
s was the case last year , when four In the
Carpenter family , father , wife , daughter and
ion , asked pay. This year three In one
'amlly Is the highest number. Neither has
ny case yet been discovered thus far like
hat which Commissioner Jenkins located ,
where the \\lfe asked pay and It wns shown
n court that she had been all the time work-
ng as a clerk In a store. Tlieso points

Fire and Police Oommisiioners Qivo Vihito
an Important Assignment.
Hoard finds Itself In n Deadlock on New
1'ollccmcn Hint Asks the Chlof to
1'ropnro n T.lst of NHIIIOS
for Consideration ,
The Hoard of Fire and Police Commission-
era held a special seslon at 4 o'clock * yester
day afternoon , the purpose being to select
men to fill fifteen vacancies on the police
force. After two hours' consideration of ap
plications some of the commissioners sub
mitted lists of their own. which' they clung
to with loyalty. It was' finally decided by a
vote of 3 to 2 , to allow Chief of Police
White to select the names of the fifteen men
and report the result to the board this af
ternoon at 4 o'clock , when another special
session will be held to decide the matter and
cither accept or reject the chief's selection.
Strlckler nnd Smith voted In the negative.
It Is probable that a captain of police will
be appointed this afternoon to fill the va
cancy which has existed for some time.
The appointment of a sergeant Is also said
to be under consideration.
Ono of. the commissioners said yesterday
that no more dismissals would bo made for
awhile and that several men wcro now on
Chief White said last night that he would
make up n list from the men whom ho had
picked out as the best during the examina
tion. As each applicant was examined ho
made notations of his general makeup and
the Intelligence displayed , and he will make
his list of these whom ho Judged ranked
highest In these regards. The men's past
hlstcry will not bo considered , for the simple
reason that the chief has not been In the
city to know their past histories. The list
will contain seventeen names. In addition
to the fifteen men who were recently dis
charged there nro two others who left the
force , thus leaving It seventeen men short of
the number that was employed a year ago.
It Is possible that seventeen new appoint
ments may bo mailo to bring the force up to
ito former number.
It Is not .understood , that the list to be
submitted by the chief will be absolutely
binding on the board , but It will aid In un
tangling a very awkward snarl , In which the
members found themselves yesterday. Each
commissioner had his own list prepared , and
as a result they were unable to agree on
the fifteen needed. As Chief White's list
vlll bo prepared without favoritism arising
rom pnst acquaintance or knowledge of the
ncn , It will servo as a guide to the com-
iitssloncrs In their search for an avenue
long which all can travel.
Other l.iiwrcrs Do Nut Agree with Him on
tlio'dilef of I'ollro Onentloti.
V. O. Strlckler of the Board of Flro and Po-
Ice commissioners has been quoted as saying
hat any attorney desiring to procure the re-
ease of a prisoner arrested at the Instance
if Chief White could accomplish this resu'.t
uccessfully by a writ of habeas corpus. Mr.
itrlckler declares that the Interview sub-
itantlally represents his opinion. "I am on
record. " he said , "on this matter , for I ex
pressed practically the same opinion when I
rated ngalnst the election of Chief White.
was convinced that Mr. White was well
qualified for the position. I regardhim as
an experienced , competent and honest official
and now that he has been elected by the
Board of Flro and Police Commissioners I be-
Icve that every citizen should give him all
possible support. But I voted against him
purely on account of the legal question In
volved. I bellevo that his election was II-
cgal nnd have had no reason to change my
opinion. I have submitted tlio question to
some of the best lawyers In the city and they
assure mo that the law Is not susceptible of
wo Interpretations , and that every police of
ficer must be an elector of Nebraska. I base
my opinion on the law , entirely Independent
of the nntl-Plnkerton law , for there was
an amendment made to the charter by the
ast legislature which plainly declares that
; io chief of police can be legally elected un
less he Is an elector of the state. "
It appears tliat Mr. Strlckler , who Is not
the only lawyer on the commission , Is the
only member who holds this opinion.
"It's simply absurd for Mr. Strlckler to
talk about the amendments to the charter
passed by the last legislature , " said one ol
the police commissioners. "The bill that em
bodied the charter amendments was vetoed
by the governor after the legislature had
adjourned and therefore' Is as dead as n
door nail. The charter as It stands
gives the commission discretion In the se
lection of n chief of police Just as It docs
In Cue choice of a chief of the tire depart
ment. Wo have exercised that discretion tc
the best Interest of the community and we
feel confident that our action will stnnd the
test of the courts as well as It-has met the
approval of all citizens who honestly desire
to see a man at the head of the police whc
Is not mixed up with the political and relig
ious feuds that have so demoralized the force
Another thing , Chief White Is head am
shoulders above any man who has ever done
police duty In tills town and he Is showing
It already In making the men too the mark. '

The county commissioners are slmplj
waiting for the word from the Omaha Stree
Railway company , Judge Stenberg says , li
order to proceed with the grading of thread
road to the fair grounds. "As I under
stand It , " Mr. Stenberg remarked yester
day , "If the company Indicates to us that 1
will build out on Leavcnworth street we wll
begin grading. If It takes the Center strce
route we will grade from Center street wes
to the fair ground gates. It Is our inten
tlon to do that , anyway. The total cos
would hardly exceed $2,000 , and I think th
city and county contracts should bo let to
gether. The county has now four grader
in operation In various parts of the count ;
throwing up roads. We have already bull
some fifty'miles of road this season. "

Joe Jackson and Tont'Thomas never made averse
\vorso mistake In their lives than when on a
Milwaukee train they packed Albert Sheriffs
out for a hungry sucken Ai a result of the
mistake Jackson and ThUmas are In the city
jail and Sheriffs Is Rolng to stay In Omaha
for a day or two to * oe' that they are pun
ished for practicing fhtlr profession as con
fidence men.
When Sheriffs left'Chicago Monday night
he noticed a couple of young fellows
In the car who were anxious to form
his acquaintance. They Old not get
along very well until they were
noarlng Omaha the next morning , when Jack-
ton sat down In the BOIMO seat with Sher
iffs , nnd , after some general conversation ,
showed him a pocketknlfe nnd asked him to
open It. Sheriffs made the attempt , but was
unable to move the blade. Jnckson then explained -
plained that a secret spring was concealed In
the back of the knife , which , when pressed ,
allowed the blade to open easily. Soon after
this explanation of the trick , Thomas np-
preached the couple and asked for a chew of
tobacco and Jackson handed up his p'.ug.
Then Thomas asked for n knlfo nnd the trick
knlfo was handed him. Ho tried to open It
and failed. This caused a laugn nnd some
talk which led to the proffer of a wnger that
Thomas could not open the knife. Ho
-vnnted to bet that he could open It and
lashed a roll as big as his arm nnd wanted
o bet all kinds of money. Jackson had but
10 nnd wns willing to bet tint sum. Thomas
foultl not bet so iman an amount nnd wanted
o put up $100 more. Didn't Sheriffs wnnt n
i.lco of the bet ? It looked like a cinch and
10 finally decided ho would risk $5 on the
reposition. H took a good deal of coaxing
o Induce Thomas to make BO small a bet ,
ut he reluctantly put up $5 ngalnst the syn-
Icate bet of Jackson and Sheriffs and after
iomo fumbling opened the knife-declared the
nonoy his and walked away.
Jackson was of course very much put out
> y his loss and declared that Oie $10 was
'Very ' cent he had In the world , but that head
ad rich relatives In Chicago nnd would nt
nco telegraph them nnd got money and
, -ould return Sheriffs the $5 ho had put Into
ho pot. The train had reached the Union
'epot by this time. Thomas had disappeared
nd Jackson led Sheriffs to a. seat In the walt-
tiR room nnd asked him to stay there thirty
nlnutes while ho went and telegraphed for
ho money. Sheriffs did not wait thirty sec-
inds , but , as soon as Jackson had left ho
.old his story to Officer Fleming. The officer
tarted out at once with Sheriffs and after a
haso succeeded In locating Jackson and
'liomas nt Seventh and Pierce streets. The
oung fellows were arrested and taken to the
Ity Jail. Thomas1 big roll panned out $27
n good money and a hnt full of confederate
illls. The men were charged with awln-
llng and will be held for trial.
Sheriffs Is an employe of the Milwaukee
oad at Milwaukee. Ho Is a bright young
'ellow nnd seemed rather put out to think
e had been played for a sucker. Ills chagrin
s tempered by his part In the capture of the
windlers and he will remain here to prose-
ute them.

Bertha and Myrtle Michaels are twin sisters
n adversity who arrived In Omaha yes-
erdny from Arkansas. The girls are
irphans. They formerly lived on a farm near
Nebo , Ark. Their father died several years
ago and their mother 'died last October , leav-
ng them among strangers and penniless.
They plticklly went , to work and since their
mother's death have bf. en-employed doing the
work of farm laborers In the fields , plowing
anil hauling * wood.
Some weeks ago the girls received a letter
from an uncle who lives on a farm near
Ponca , Neb. Ho wrote them that ho was a
poor man , but If they could reach his place
ho would give them n home 2nd send them to
school. They Immediately started , walking a
distance of.i.200 rrillos to Port Smith , Irom
which place they were furnished transporta
tion to Omaha. The girls' applied to the
police for help and were placed In
charge of Matron Cummlngs. They were
ragged nnd dust-covered from their long
travel. An effort will bo made to secure
them transportation to Ponca.
