H. M. 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. Culbcrtson assumed this
debt , nnd 1ms succeeded In cutting It down
to $140. Ho claims that his arrest Is an
effort on the part of Gllllnsky to collect
this amount. The accused man will have
a hearing on next Monday.

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. "

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 ? "
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 , "
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.

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
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

Today Is the Bccodjii'hlg Saturday on this
year's foot ball schedule , and It It can fur-
nInh as many rcmafJkalAe scores as did Sat
urday of last week , It , too , will bo entitled
to be marked with a red cross. 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

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 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
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
