Culbcrtson , the Junior member of the firm of Bell & Culbertson , recently en gaged In the commission business on Upper Broadway , has been arrested upon the charge of embezzlement. The nmount al leged to have been stolen Is $291. The com plainant Is B. Gllllnsky. The case has Boino peculiar and sensational features. On the 10th oMftBt Juno Culbcrtson , whllo nctlng as traveling salesman for Gllllnsky's firm , figured na , the vlstlm In a. sensational holdup nnd robbery In Onawa , la. Ho was held up and robbed of $291 whllo going from the hotel to the depot. Two weeks nfter the occurrence ho loft the employ of Gllllnsky , owing to suspicions and disputes over the matter , and later went Into part nership with G. G. Bell. After the part nership had been formed Culbertson and Bell used the firm's money to make good the loss sustained by Gllllnsky , to remove the possibility of having their credit hurt. Later Ir. the season the firm became em barrassed and Boll left It. They were In debted to Gllllnsky for goods to the amount of nearly $200.

Broadway , Council Bluffs , la. in the Went. Captain H. L. Henry returned to the city yesterday , after an absence of nearly ix year. IIo has been living with his fam ily on the Pacific coast. Before starting for homo business affairs took him Into nearly nil of the chief cities on the coast. From Inquiries nnd observations made dur- * lng these trips , ho Is convinced that every Pacific const state will glvo McKlnley most substantial majorities. Ho says the result In San Francisco will bo simply astonish ing when the votes are counted. Nearly every business man In the city has como out strongly for McKlnley , and In Portland the ratio will bo about -20 to 1. On thu way across the continent ho stopped three days In Salt Lake City , nnd ho found It to bo the only plnco that Bryan had much liopo of carrying. Ho believed from what Lo saw In Wyoming that the state was about as sure for McKlnley as Iowa. He occupied a week In making the trip across Nebraska , and learned enough to make him rcry anxious to find some misguided Bryan enthusiast who had some money to bet on the state , "I rcnlly heard more of Mr. Ilosowater throughout the state than I did of Mr , Bryan , " said ho , "and I am con vinced that ho has done raoro solid , cf- fectlvo work , to keep the state safe for McKlnley than any other man In It.

LARGE CROWD OUT TO HEAR THEM SPEAK I'liinininnil Tariff Continue the At tention ( it ( lie Orntorn ItplinUo 11 I'opiillNt UlNltirlier of the Meulliitr. T. V. Powdcrly , Charles Hohlfa nnd A. W. Wright , the labor leaders who are making the tour of the west In the Interests of Wil liam McKlnley and Bound money , spoke to an enthusiastic audience at republican head quarters yesterday afternoon. Despite the fact that the meeting was held during the tlmo ofvlay when mosti of the men wcro at work , the hall wns well filled. In point of Interest few of the rallies held hero have exceeded the reception that was accorded thi ) speakers yesterday afternoon. Hon. N. M. Pusey presided nnd Introduced the speakers. Charles llohlf wns presented as HID gifted young orator from Buffalo , N. Y. , and Ills speech was a full warrant for this compliment. Ho appealed to the patriotIsm - Ism of the American voter In a most elo quent and telling manner nnd was frequently applauded. "You came here to better your self , " said he , addressing the citizens from foreign countries. "You did It because you looked upon this country as the place for the poor man. You did better yourself. Then show your appreciation of It. Columbia Is Rtlll the 'Gem of the Ocean. ' " During the course of Mr. Uohlf's speech an Inspired admirer of Bryan and frco silver yelled : "Hurrah for Bryan. " "Well , you might as well hurrah for him now. You won't have so much of an cxcuso In a few days. " came bark the telling reply from the speaker. The disturber then started to leave and ho was admonished to get another sup ply of free silver enthusiasm. Ono things said by Mr. Ilohlfs that was greeted meat enthusiastically was : "Remember that this government Is not based on the principle of how much you can get out of It , but how much true patriotism , manliness and honor each citizen can put Into It. " A. W. Wright of Niagara was the next speaker. Ho Is a Canadian by birth and has held a prominent place In the labor organi zations of the country. In the opening of his talk he saldl that ho wished to lay down the following proposition , which the voters present should keep In nlnd : "Is U true that all the wealth In this land. In every land , that has been or ever will bo pro duced , Is the result of labor , either of brain or muscle ; and If that Is true , will not every dollar that Is put Into the pockets of bullion owners by legislation be wrung from the toll and labor of the worklngman ? " BACKED BY UULLIONAIRES. The two Important Issues In the cam paign , ho said , were finance and tariff. TI history of the populist platform and the Introduction of Iho free silver plonk Into It was fully explained. Mr. Wright said that ho had been a delegate to the con vention of 1S92 , when that plank was In serted. Ho was chairman of the platform committee and of a subcommittee that bad drawn up the free silver clause. The prin ciple had been espoused because the silver mlno owners had premised to supply the funds to keep the agitation going If this waft granted them. There was absolutely no debt owing to the frco sliver democrats by the populists , ho said , as they had prac tically been crowded out of the political tent by the democratic camel , that had first gotten Us head In , then Its hump and finally crowded out all the populists. Wat son , ho said , was the only ono who had managed to stand on the populist plat form , but ho had been squeezed off by this time. In discussing the sincerity and worth of the principles of the free silver advocates ho applied a number of tests , to the movement that were commonly applied to all enterprises. The company that the cause kept , the methods employed by the loaders , as In the fraudulent London Finan cial News editorial , the deliberately garbled translation of the Bismarck telegram , and other falsehoods all tended to show that It was based on wrong principles. Mr. Bryan , ho said , was not guiltless In this method of carrying on his cause. At Now London , Conn. , Mr. Bryan had claimed that ho was a sufferer from the failure of the Lincoln National bonk , trying to create tbo impression that ho had practically lost his nil , and In this way prejudice bis audi ence against the banks. H had been de veloped by a statement of the bank re ceiver that Mr. Bryan had never had raor than $400 on deposit In the bank , that ho had only $73.03 on deposit when the col- lapao came and that ho had an unpaid note of $1,000 at the same time. "Yes. " said Mr. Wright , "Mr. Bryan knew that ho was de ceiving the people when ho made those statements , and was willing to lese one- half of that $73.03 If the presidency was thrown In and half of all the savlncs de posits In the country were sacrificed. " In conclusion ho said : "I believe In the prin ciple that the Individual Is not the unit of government , but the family , and no voter has a right to go to the polls next Tues day and by voting his personal convic tion sacrifice those of his wlfo and chil dren , " POWDKRLY TELLS HIS POSITION. Tcrrcnco V. Powdcrly was greeted by pro longed applause ns ho stepped forward to speak. Ho was suffering from severe hoarse ness and was compelled several times to pause because of the pains In his chest. His opening talk was devoted mainly to contradicting the false reports that had been Kent out as to letters and statements made by him some yeata ago. when ho was In favor of frco silver. The Hayn letter , al leged to hnvo been written by him Novem ber 1 , 1SSS , ho said was a fabrication and ho never wrote It , His position taken In an article. In the August , 1892 , num ber of the North American Ro- vlow , he said had been gar bled and that ho had taken the word of Senator Stewart for the fact that the act of 1S73 was secretly passed. His action In going to the silver congress at Chicago In 1893 and In espousing the cause of the Knights of Labor of the silver producing B tales had been done In his official capacity , at their request. "I have been charged with changing my mind on the silver question , and I have changed U. I believe It Is the duty of ovcry man who has by his position and his utter ances Influenced others In a way ho finds has been wrongful , to tell the people , of his mistake and try and undo any of the Injury ho has done. Three years ago there wns not a working man or business man In favor of frco silver , but the mlncowners. They 'havo ' kept up the agitation and have succeeded In fooling ; a great many honest men. " Ho referred repeatedly to Senator Stewart as "tho all-around American detect ive and discoverer of crimes , the ono of 1S73 Included , " The list of great estates and mlno owners behind the silver movement wns read by Mr. Powderly and the position taken by Governor Altgcld In his gold clause leases on the Unity building In Chicago wcro also referred to. "Yes , Altgcld believes in a silver euro for you , but must have a gold ono 'for himself. It was his flno Italian hand that penned the clause In the Chicago platform that attacked the highest tribunal nnd executive of the nation. " With the aid of an American dollar , a Mexican dollar , A cold dollar , an ounce of bullion silver nnd a disc of coin silver worth a dollar. < ho showed the manner In which the purchaolng power of the American silver coin wns maintained on a parity with gold. The object leeaon was closely followed and made a decided Impression , The meeting closed with great cheering for the speakers and McKluloy and Hobart. Cut CliiHii Ilraiitlful.

It was gold , gold , gold everywhere and wherever you looked as the sun went down l.tst night , Golden windows with flags and bunting and golden badges with "Sound Money" Inscribed upon them will meet th6 gaze of Mr. Bryan whichever way he may turn his eyes when ho nrrlves In Council HHilTs this evening. The republican procla mation that has gene over the land calling upon every man who Intends to vote for McKlnley today to display the national flag has been responded to by the Council Bluffs people with an ardor that has created a sensation , The demand for flags baa been so great that It could not' bo filled. At the republican headquarters thousands of paper flags with the pictures of McKlnlcy and Hobart upon them wcro given out , and It there had been as many more on hand none of them would have been uncalled for. They have been scattered all over the town , and the windows of thousands of private residences arc decorated with them. The natural conservatism of business men prevented mnny of them decorating the show windows of their places at the start , but before the day had grown very eld the example of the many who believed that the exigencies of the times demanded the sac- rlflco of all personal feelings became con tagious , and when the mm went down there wcro few windows In which Old Glory was not shining , surrounded by billows of gold. Three thousand yellow satin sound money badges were printed during the afternoon and distributed nt .tho republican head quarters. In an hour they wcro all gone. They wcro not cnrrled awny nnd hidden , hut wcro pinned on the lapels of coats worn by voters. Men who have never worn a badge or marched In a political procession In all their lives pinned the llttlo yellow Insignia of national honor on their coats and went about their business. They were fluttering and gleaming wherever you looked. Some of the window decorations wore very striking. The largo front windows of Officer & Pusey's bank were filled with flags and pictures of McKlnlcy and Hobart nnd Palmer and Buckner. At the Durfeo Furniture cc.mpany a most beautiful dis play was made. A magnificent golden couch , upholstered In yellow silk , was used for the center pleco of the main window deco ration. For a distance of four blocks on Broadway there wcro only thrco business housed that had not made a demonstration In favor of national honor. When Mr. Bryan comes today ho will find cold com fort for his political aspirations , hut a warm welcome by the people who admire him as a private citizen and platform speaker. Ho will be shown every consid eration nnd thousands of flags nnd yellow badges. UUAUAXTIXn LAW TO III3 ENFUIICEIl. Mnyor anil llonril of Health Take the .Mailer In Hand. Ono now case of diphtheria was reported fo the clerk of the Board of Health yester day and that was in n family where Iho disease has already been reported as exist ing. Vague rumors wcro afloat that there were two other cases , but no reports wcro received. The number of cases and malignancy of the malady has aroused the Board of Health authorities , and an actlvo campaign against the disease and the people who violate or rcfuso to comply with the state quarantine laws will bo begun. The mayor has ordered a sanitary police man on duty Under section 17 of the ordi nance relating to the protection of public health , whoso dut will be to visit quaran tined premises at' least once each forty- eight hours , and shall sec that strict quar antine Is maintained and the premises prop erly placarded , and he shall file Informations against all offenders before the police court.

When any place Is placed under quarantine regu lations no persons' residing at such place shall bo permitted to attend any public or private school nor any public place , without permission from the mayor , countersigned by the health officer , under the provisions of the ordinance , and any wilful violation of this provision subjects the offender to a flno of not less than $25 or bo Imprisoned not less thin llvo days. It Is Intended to enforce these regulations , and the citizens are requested to report ovcry Infraction of the ordinance , that the same may be promptly dealt with. WHEN IIHYAX COSIES TO TOWN.

At home there promises to be a first-class exhibitioner or the game between the High school teams of Omaha and Council Uluffs. Doth elevens have been working hard In their recent prac tice games , and ought to give the best ex hibition of foot ball seen on local grounds so far this season. Omaha has won ono game from Council Bluffs and Is anxious to make It two straight , whllo the lowans hope to even up matters and make It necessary to play a third game to decide the scries. Nebraska will line up against the Wcslcyan college team at Lincoln this afternoon , and ought to have a snap In disposing of the Methodist brethren. The State University boys , however , will not play a hard game nor try to run up n big score , for they are a bit stiff from their game of Monday with the Missouri Tigers. At Chicago Stagg's team will have a chance to redeem Itself by defeating the University of Illinois eleven. Nichols has dropped out from the Chicago team couldn't stand adverse criticism and the two Omaha backs will have n better chance than ever to show what stuff they nro made of. In the east the greatest game will be at Princeton between the Nassau Tigers and the Cornclllans. The Ithaca team Is crip pled by the absence of Its regular full back and quarter back , but should hold the Jor- scymcn down to three touchdowns , anyway. Princeton Is in the best of condition , has had no hard games lately and has had abun dant opportunity to work up Its new plays. Krom Its showing lu recent games many critics have pronounced It the bfet team on the field today , and there Is but little doubt but that It will add another victory to Its list this afcrnoon. The Carlisle Indians , who were cheated out of the game with Yale by Kcfcrce Hlckok a week ago , will line up against Harvard at Cambridge today. A close game Is ex pected and there arc those that predict that the Indians will win. Harvard Is In none ton good condition , and Captain V rlghtlng- ton's lame knco may keep him out of the game. However close the game may be , the red men are assured of fair treatment. Whatvcr else may bo said of the athletic teams that wear the crimson , their thorough , going sportsmanship cannot for a single In stance be questioned. Pennsylvania does not play today. Some of Its players will watch Harvard's style of play at Cambridge , while others will go to Princeton to get a line on Cornell. Lchlgh makes Its .flret trip to the west for a long number years , and this afternoon It will appear on the field at Ann Arbor , doomed to defeat. The 'rldo ' from Dcthlchcm , Pa. , Is enough to put the players out of condition for n hard game , but It Is doubt ful If Lchlgh could defeat Michigan even on home grounds. 'Tho ( Missouri Tigers arc In St. Louis todayrandlwlll there face the boys from Vandcrbllt university.

The Wcsloyans have bcdn working llko beavers lately under the coaching of Frank Craw ford , who formerly coached the University team , and arc In excellent condition and will put up a strong game.

Teli-crrnplior Oporutor'H Uctnrn After n llvimirkabliKxtxTlrnce. . On March 23 , 1892 , Jason L. Miller , chief telegraph operator at the Lchlgh Valley railroad depot at Wllkcsharro , Pa. , disap peared as suddenly as though the earth had swallowed him up. In the course of lime , says a dispatch to the OlDbe-Democr.it. his family mourned htm as dead. Yesterday Mrs. Miller and her two chll- ilnm wcro overjoyed to sec the husband and father walk Into the house. The meet ing was a very pathetic one. Miller , who Is n man about 40 years of ago , told n remark able story. Ho says all Is a blank to him from the mlnuto ho disappeared In Wllkcs harro until ten days ago , when he found himself on board an English merchant ship. He says on the night he disappeared he was passing an alley , when two men dragged him In and sandbagged him. Ho could feel the men rifling his pockets. That was the last he remembered and ha gradually lost consciousness. Ho tried to yell , but could not , and his tongue seemed to bo par alysed. Ho partially regained his senses some time later on and It seemed to him as though ho was being carried by strange men. Ho again partially came to and found himself In a box car loaded with Iron castings. It was a bitterly cold night and ho was nearly frozen. Again ho became unconscious , and remembers nothing until October 1 , when ho found himself on board a vessel In the middle of the Atlantic ocean. He could not realize for hours that ho was on the ship , far , far away from the bosom of his family. Ho looked In a mirror and there beheld him self as he had often done before. There was only ono change , and that was that ho was attired as a sailor. His first thoughts were of his wlfo and three children. Then came back to him the thoughts of that awful struggle In the alley when ho was knocked down and robbed. Ho stopped to think. Could It bo possible that he had wandered away from homo and been lost to friends for ono year and three months ; lost. In fact , among the living , and his rela tives unable to find him. It was more like a dream than anything else , the ( longer he thought of It. Miller found n card In his pocket , on which It was stated that he , Fred Cook , was to servo as a sailor on the English ship from Liverpool to Philadelphia and re turn , and receive his board , clothes and 12 shillings for his services. The other sailors had known him as Cook. When the vessel reached port Miller took the first train for Wllkcsbarra SIOUX CITY KOItnKIl CONFESSES. JitiucH I. .
