HUSTLING FOKOTHE POSITION.
Omco of Sidewalk linpoctor Will Not He
Abolllliccl Muny Want tlio Job ,
The Board of Public Works has refusei
to consider the resolution of Street Commis
sioner Kaspar to do away with the services
ot the sidewalk Inspector. Members base
their action on the claim that the ofllcc Is
created by charter and that Us powers cannel
properly bo delegated to any other person
On this ground they assert that If the In
spectorship were abolished and the work re
latlng to special taxes done by some one else
tile levy would bo invalidated.
In view of the decision of the majority n
the board , Mr. Kaspar has withdrawn his
resolution , and at the meeting next Friday ho
will name some person to' succeed Urban B
Balcombo , the present Inspector.
The action of the board In deciding to con
tinue the ofllco has produced a lively gather
Ing of forces on the part of these who aspire
to the posl.tlon. Mr. Balcombo Is not partlcu
larly anxious to surrender his salary to a
successor and his friends arc working tc
secure his rcappolntmcnt. Ono of the mos
active hustlers for the Job Is Patrick Ford
but In view of the fate of Mlko Lee Frl
day. It Is suggested yiat ho had better change
his name If he expects to bo In the race fo
confirmation. S. L. Boyd and J. W. Furna
are mentioned In connection with the position
and candidates arc likely to multiply during
Concerning John Mriiaveni.
The death of John McGovern at St
Bernard's hospital nt Council Bluffs las
Sunday morning removed one of the few
remaining men who passed an entire life
time as a citizen of Omaha. Mr. McGovern
was born In this city 37 years ago and liac
been prominently connected with Its bust
ness Interests. Up to the time of Jils deatl
ho was a member of the firm of C. I )
Havens & Co. and until his health began
to fall about thrro years ago he took ai
active part In the linn's business. At tha
time a stroke of paralysis compelled him
to abandon active business pursuits and tli
Intervening time was largely spent Ir
traveling. Recently his condition became
alarming and the most faithful care couli
nut save his life. His funeral was held a
9 o'clock Tuesday morning from St. Peter'
church and n large concourse of friends one
relatives united In paying their last trlbut
of respect. The Catholic Knights o
America , of which order deceased was t
valued member , attended In a body. Mr
McGovern leaves a wife and one child , wh
reside at the family residence at 220 Nortl
liny Will Ai-copt.
Attorney Day lias accepted th position o
assistant attorney general , and expects to g
to Lincoln tomorrow , when he will nie hi

ment was a total surprise to him. His wlf
being absent be coujd not ttate uba.1 his ar

The following Is an extract from a letter
n regard to Orchard Homes lands that will
0 of Interest to many : "The first year 1
grew cabbage's at the rate of 20 tons per
icre , and no finer heads ever went to mar-
tot than Koine of them were. The same
vear I grew peanuts at the rate of 200 bush-
Is per acre ( an average Virginia crop IB less
han SO bushels ) sweet potatoes , 300 bushels
> ( ? r acre , tomatoes , 300 bushels merchantable
rult nnd a * much more that was not strictly
alable. The second year , Irish potatoes ,
50 bushels per acre , spring crop , and fall
rep yet to dig. I measured several stalks
f corn this year , the smallest of which was
1 feet and the tallest 13 feet high , each
icarlng two well developed cars , none of
vhlch were less than 12 Inches long. Early
urnlp beets grow to weigh an average of
% pounds each and 24 Inches In circum-
erenco for the largest measured specimen.
One-yecr-old peach trees cet last January
and February and cut back to about three
eet high , are now eight and nine months
fem the setting , 7 to 9 feet high , well
) ranchcd , vigorous , full of fruit buds and
ooklng strong enough to bear a full crop
next year. They won't be allowed to , of
ourse , except a few specimens.
"To further show the capacity of this soil
and the climate as well , take the results of
this season on a small patch on which n va
riety has been grown. Understand that these
nre not estimates nor guesses , but carefully
recordsd measurements , dates , amounts , etc. ,
ier acre : January 1 , planted Alaska pens ,
Meld 200 bushels. April 1 , planted Irish po-
at03S , yield , 365 bushels. June 20 , allowed
crab grass to prow , potatoes having been dug
and nothing else ready to go on the ground ;
yield , two tons of hay equal to the best tim
othy. August 2C. Irish potatoes planted
again , and by October 20 new potatoes of
good size ready to cat ; they arc a good
stand , very thrifty , nnd promise to outyleld
the spring crop. None of thtse four crops
was doubled up , but each one was gathered
complete before the land was put In prcpara-
.lon for the next crop. When the potatoes
are dug ( November ) onions can be set at
ho rate of over 10,000 dozen bunches to the
acre , of which the yield should bo ttro-
thlnls of the amount set , nnd worth In the
northern markets In March , when they can
easily be made ready to pull , from 10 to 30
cents per bunch , less freight , commission ,
and packages , about 3 to 5 cents per dozen.
As I have often stated , while paying crops
of corn , oats , cotton , etc. , can be nnd arc
raised on this Orchard Homes lands , still
t Is pro-emlnsntly suited for garden farm
ing and fruit raising. There Is not a vege
table and but few fruits known to the north-
rn gardener and horticulturist which cannot
e grown In greater perfection and more
abundantly here , and the list of what can
tie grown here and marketed In the north
at high prices Is a long one. If you can
raise fruits and vegetables where you are ,
come here and sso how much better you can
do. You can get a batter home for yourself
here and get It sooner and easier than any
where I ever heard of. Your children will
have just as good educational chances here
as anywhere. You can grow crops here
twelve months of the year Instead of six.
The south Is now the spot for the Intelligent
man to go and the people of the west recog
nize that fact. " For further data address

PROPERTY OWNER3 PROTEST.
( ontrml thnt It Is a HitriUhlp to Comply
with the Tenui ot an Urillimnco.
Street Commissioner Kaspar Is Insisting or
the observance of the ordinance which pro
hlblts driving over the curbing In order to gel
Into an alley and there Is a prodigious protesl
from a few wealthy property owners win
consider It a hardship tm\t they should be
compelled to construct driveways Into tin
alleys , adjoining their property , as Is con
templated by the ordinance. " '
A great many property owners have bridged
over the difficulty In the past by construct
ing a sort of apron of boards , by whlqh the )
were enabled to drive over the curbing. Thli
apron acted as an obstruction to the guttei
and during heavy rains It was a source ol
considerable annoyance. Commissioner Kas
par has begun war on the nuisance and tin
sidewalk Inspector Is busy serving notices ot
more than thirty property owners In tin
down town district. The enforcement o :
the ordinance Involves some expenditure or
the part of the property owners and some o :
them have called at the ofllco of the Boarc
of Public Works to Inform the members tha
they are a set of rascals , to Inflict such i
needless hardship. But the notices are stll
on their way and It Is promised that the ]
will be backed up by legal action unlesi
their terms are compiled with.

KAUFFMAN LEARNED A LESSON
arty to a .Suit In Which llo Took No
Judge Keysor decided a case yesterday
which will hereafter make parties keep a
sharper lookout than they have been doing
when they see their names used
n connection with a lawsuit.
Charles Kauffman of South Omaha
ivas taught this lesson by reason of a re-
ilevln action which was begun In the sumner -
ner of 1893 In his name for the purpose of
obtaining possession of a frame dwelling
'louse ' valued at $300.
It appeared from the testimony that A. W.
\dams of South Omaha , as a consUble , made
a levy on this bouse to satisfy n Judgment
of $218.87. An attorney at once rushed Into
Justice Levy's court and obtained replevin
wpers to get the nouse away from Adams ,
bringing the action In Kaufman's name. The
jecullar part of the case lies In the fac (
that Kaufman declares that he knew nothing
of this procedure , but August Hanuso testl-
led that he was Kaufman's best friend and
business adviser and authorized these legal
steps. At any rate the case worked Its way
nto nn Omaha Justice shop , when the de
fendant made a motion to have the case dis
missed because the attorney lacked authority
for bringing the case originally. Instead of dis
missing the case the suit was sent to dis
trict court , as the Omaha Justice concluded
the house was too large lor him to handle.
Affairs continued to run along In the district
court until last fall , when the defendant
walked Into court one day and finding Kauf
man absent , took a Judgment against him by
default and proceeded to Issue his execution
to get back either the house or Its value
In money. Just at this turn of affairs Kauf
man concluded that he must enjoin the levy
on the house or he would be out several
hundred dollars for having been made a plain
tiff In n case by mistake , instead of one
Sear ) , who. It Is claimed , was the party who
should have prosecuted the replevin action.
The Justices all testify tlist Kaufman wit *
kept Informed of the progress of the lawsuit
but Kaufman maintains that he thought the )
were all the time talking about an appeal
bond. The court holds that Kaufman woke
up too late In the day to do himself any
good and dismisses his Injunction against the
levy of the execution against him.

particularly hard. HIggins , especially , has
nothing to complain of concerning his treat
ment in-the criminal branch of the district
court. He now walks the streets of Omaha
after having been jointly Indicted with
Rhodes forx burglary , who , as his pal , was
convicted by twelve men sworn to try the
June 3 Rhodes was placed on trial for bur
glarizing tbe saloon .of Fred H.jKruso , and
convicted. The criminal Judge set the ver
dict aside and gave Rhodes another trial.
He also said that he could get out as soon as
he gave a $1,000 bond. The release of the
court was granted on the technical ground
that the sun might have been up half an
hour or so before the time when the bur
glary could have been committed , though the
state claimed It had proven to the Jury's
satisfaction that the burglary was undoubted
ly committed In the saloon at midnight , or
thereabouts. On July C the two young men
were taken before Judge Scott , who made
a new Journal entry allowing them to get
away from the charge of burglary by plead
ing guilty to stealing $ C worth of stuff. They
were given thirty days In Jail. So the matter
stood until yesterday , when Hlgglns got off
free , Inasmuch as the court made an order
sentencing him to the city Jail for five days ,
the date of his sentence to begin July G. It
Is stated that HIggins won the Judge's at
tention by complaining of being sick , and
was released on this ground. Inquiry at the
Jail revealed the fact that In his confinemen'
for several months past he had never been
sick or asked for medicine and had never
complained to the doctor. Rhodes , however ,
who Is still In jail. Is a weakly consumptive.

The Paul flats , located on the corner of
Nineteenth and Chicago streets , are to have
a receiver. Rents are coming In at the rate
of about $220 a month , some $2,500 of taxes
ara due , and Paul , by his action , so Judge
Keysor finds , evinces no Intention of keeping
the property Insured. Somebody will b8
made receiver. W. F. Havemeyer , ths first
mortgagee , asked for the appointment to pro
tect a $37,000 mortgage that he has upon this
block. The total Incumbrances Is not far
from $60,000. This case was but a short
time since taken to the supreme court , when
the appointment of a receiver was refused
"pro forma , " and remanded for trial. The
district court now appoints a receiver. The
case will at ones go back to the supreme
court to ascertain whether or not a receiver
should have been appointed. The appeal
bond was fixed at $6,000 , to cover the proba
ble waste during the two years more which
the case Is expected to be In the supreme
rVmlltori Unit tin * llnnk.
A complicated suit was before the equity
court yesterday , growing out of a mortgage
on Omaha land , Involved In a suit of the Peter
borough Savings bank against A. W. Pierce.
It was made to appear that the bank had an
assignment of the mortgage It was attempting
to foreclose upon , but Instead ot filing it
with the county clsrlc , It had filed the as
signment In Its vault. ' In the meantime the
Klmball-Champ Investment company became
financially Involved a ad the creditors at
tached a deed to this : ame land which the
Klmball company bid.vbcomo possessed ot
although It had previously given an as
signment of the mortgage on the land to the
bank. In the equity court , by reason of this
fact , the creditors ouioe out ahead ot the
AppraUcnirnt K IUMIIR llnilintiirbrd.
Judge Keysor laid llown the law In the
case of confirmation > ot sales while passing
on the case of Simpson against Magln.
Property In this suit'was appraised at $4,000
and It was at once attacked by the defend
ant , that the valuation was too small , affi
davits on each side tidng filed , the plantlff's
side swearing that.tthe amount was very
liberal , and the defunilant maintaining that
It was Inadequate. .Judge Keysor said that
In these times he waaiaware that every man
set his own price on real estate , and he
would not disturb tlie-sworn return of ap
praisers unless fraud could be shown. He
failed to find any In this case.
Time When Minute * Counted ,
In the foreclosure suit of Cassldy against
Archer an attack was made against the
appraisement. About the middle of April the
sale was held at 10 o'clock In the morning ,
and Just five minutes after It had started ,
Archer reached the clerk's office with a mo
tion to tet aside ( be appraisement because
It was too low. Archer , so Judge Keysor
decided yesterday , was five minutes and
a fraction ot a second too late , and his mo
tion was held to be no good. He should
b.ave filed bis motion b tore the sale started.

Former residents of Ohio and Indiana now

ot the Cincinnati Enquirer , which will visit
this and other western cities next month.
The attention of Commissioner L'tt of the-
Commercial club has been called to the
contemplated visit of the 300 cxcurMo.ilsts
and he will bring the subject of entertain
ment up at the next meeting ot the execu
tive committee of the club.
The trip will cover 3,780 miles. .
The sojourn of the excursionists In Omaha
will be from 4:05 : p. m. , August 20 , until 10
o'clock the same evening.
Commissioner Utt believes that Ittould
be an excellent Idea to charter two rpeclal
motor trains and give the vlsftors a. plimpse
of the city. In the evening n reception will
doubtless bo given nt the cl ID rooms mil

Jackson and Tlionia ? , the two smooth
young men , who were sent up for thirty
days for confldenclng Albert Sheriffs out
of $5 , are on their way west , the Jail sentence
Imposed by Judge Ilerka having been re
mitted by the mayor.
The young fellows were nervy enough , nnd
after being released they walked down to
the police station , gave a detective or two
the laugh , and then started for California.
Mayor Bemls set aside the Jail sentence on
representations made by the young men that
they were anxious to get out of the city
and to their homes In California. They both
had tickets for the coast , and told the mayor
that they were going back to their homes
and would stay thre. The chief of police
entered no objection to the discharge of the
prisoners. He was convinced that they were-
bid characters , but as there was no charge
against them on which thy could be pun
ished by more than a Jail sentence , he was
quite willing to get them away from Omahs
at the expens ? of remitting the line Imposed
In the police court.

streets , was nliuost completely destroyed by

Deb Glider , timekeeper for Mr. Grant , had
been nt work In the building and wan just
leaving It when ho saw smoke Issuing from
n cupola on thereof and almost at the same
time discovered one of the huge smelting ket
tles on fire. An al.irm was turned In and
the department responded promptly , but It
was IOD late to save the building. The losa
will reach $1.000 on the building and machin
ery. and may exceed that amount as the
machinery may have suffered moro damage
than Is anticipated at this time. Mr. Grant
carried $3,000 In Insurance , having cancelled
a $2,000 policy on the plant but a few days
ago. The building will bo rebuilt In order
to protect the machinery.
A FORTUNE IN FOOD.
Nearly n Million Amusi-d liy the Keeper of
it < limp ttr taiinint.
From the bill of faro printed below Pat
rick Dolan has amassed a fortune of $300.-
000 In New York City. One-third of this
amount Is Invested In real estate. The bal
ance Is In cash , which could be got together
within six hours. Kitty-four thousand dollars
lars Is drawing Interest In eighteen different
savings banks. He has $3,000 In each bank ,
which Is the limit accepted from a single
depositor. Yet when ho started a llttlo cof
fee and cake saloon In a basement , says an
exchange , thirty years ago , he only had $20.
Here Is the menu from which this fortune
has been made :

About 1SSO Dolan moved out of the Inse-
inent Into the little store overhead. Here
ho had room for only six tables. He nude
money from the day he started In business.
Uolan made friends easily , but was never
theless Independent. He has never used the
credit system In his lunch room , spot cash on
delivery having always been his rule. Dolan
has often had to pay as high as 75 cents a
dozen for his eggs , yet he never charged his
patrons more than 5 cents apiece.
"It's enough , " he says. "As amoral
thing , I can buy my eggs at from 18 to 23
cents a dozen. I nnke a good profit on
them. Why should I bleed my cusiomers
Just because I get the tough end of the steak
once In a while ? "
