from Two Financier * Mutr
, Under Sentence. ,
' LINCOLN , March 4. ( Specwl. ) The supreme
premo court adjourned thli afternoon , alter
having been In dceslon one day longer than
uauel. Judge Sullivan had au attack of
the grip and went homo yesterday otter-
noon. The court , contrary to general ex
pectation , failed to pats upon the applica
tions for rebearlngs In the Bartlcy and
Mills cases , and no ruling will bo made
until the next sitting of the court , which
twill be on March. 15.
J. II. nroady , attorney for the Society of
the Homo for the Friendless. In the suit
brought to compel the payment ot the state
Appropriation , Is withdrawing the original
papers ami bills from the flics In order that
a now suit may be commenced. He was
not ready toJny to say what course ho
'would pursue to get the money paid over
to the fioclety , but Indicated that n new
move would bo made very soon. Yesterday
afternoon Mm. Williams , who Is still Acting
for the society -os matron of the home ,
telephoned Land Commissioner Wolfe that
the smokestack of the Institution Is In a
dangerous condition , liable to fall down at
any time , and asked that the Hoard of Pub
lic Lands and liulldlnga call and attend to
It. Today Mr. Wolfe "wont out and In
spected the chimney. Ho did not consider
It In A cry tad shape and told Mrs. Wil
liams that the board , under the present
complicate ! circumstances , would not feel
. Justified In mending the chimney unless the
nocloty would allow the etato to furnish tbo
engineer. Mrs. Williams raid she could
make no agreement of this kind without
consulting the society , and the land com
missioner tumo away. He Is Inclined to
think It was all a ruse to get the board
to commit Ibielf In some way.
8. H. Atwood , who operates stone and
Band quarries t Cedar Creek , says that la
1892 the shipments by his company
amounted to 7,000 carloads. At that time
n largo number of laborers were em
ployed , the wages paid being $1.75 per day.
In 1895 and 18'JG the business had dwindled
down to about COO carloads per year , mo t of
the laborers were let out of work , and
wagon went down to $1.23 per day. Soon
after the passage of the n. w tariff bill a
ruptd increase In business was noticed , and
the shipments for 1S97 amounted to over
fl.500 cars , 440 of which were sent out In
jilJovcmber. The demand for stone and sand
. was almost greater than the supply , and
wages hove Jumped back to $1.75. This
year the orders and Inquiries for building
material are coming In In larger numbers
than over before. Mr. Atwood says that
this Increase of business Is not confined to
the dealers In stone , but applies as well to
the brick manufacturers and the lumber
dealers. There Is a great dementi for build
ing materials , and the year 1898 Is ex-
pootcd to bo the liveliest In the history of

The citizens and business men of the town
of Shubcrt , in Richardson county , have made
complaint to the State Board of Transporta
tion that their town IB being very badly
crved by the B. & M. and ask that some re

line between Salem and Ncmaha City , but
the railroad company , with a total disregard
of the wishes and demands ot the public , runs
but ono train each way per day and that
these go through Shubort at such a late hour

plained that the trains make no connection

LINCOLN , Neb. , March 4. ( Special. ) Ex-
Governor Tdayer has requested the publica
tion of the following open letter :
LINCOLN , Neb. , March 3. Mr. J. C.
Wharton , Omaha : Sir In your somewhat
rambling talk , which I suppose you would
call un argument , In the contest case bpjwoon
Broatch and Moores for the mayorshlp ot
Omaha , you went out of your way to assail
myself , an humble private ) citizen who had
never had the slightest connection with the
case you arc pretending to discuss.
You are reported as using this language
which I now quote : "Ho ( you ) had never
known but two Instances In which a man
had undertaken to usurp a public office who
had not received a single vote of man , woman
01- child therefor. Ono of them was Gov
ernor Thayer , who had undertaken to with
hold the office from James E. Boyd on the
claim that the man elected by the votes ot
a majority ot people was Ineligible. He
( you ) had gone to Governor Thayer and
begged him to yield to the people's choice ,
but ho held on , and thereby forfeited the
respect of every respectable , loyal citizen
of the state. "
When you state that you had gone to
Governor Thayer and begged him to yield
to the people's choice you arc guilty of a
direct and palpable faUchcoil. You never
said ono word to mo on the subject and
you did not call upon me. I did not know
you then by eight , and I do not know you
by sight now , and I do not desire to know
you , for my acquaintance Is confined to
men only who arc gentlemen.
It was cowardly for you to attack another
who was miles away and who had no op
portunity of replying to you , and especially
when he never had anything to do with the
caee under consideration. In the Thaycr-
Boyd contest I did exactly what my oath of
office required of me. It was my sacred
duty to sen that no ono was elevated to tnc
office of governor of this state who was In-
elllglblc. After years of reflection , I know
I was right , and would take the same action
again under the same circumstances. My
mistake was In surrendering the ofllco as I
did under the mistaken advice of my senior
counsel , and which mistake I have always
regretted , and I would not have surrendered
had I known then the Interior history of
the ease In the supreme court In Washing
ton. I know full well that I had the upproval
of the largo majority of the people of the
state for bringing that suit.
It Is currently reported that you asplro
to the office of United States district attor
ney for Nebraska. In my Judgment you
are wholly unfit for the office. It should
bo filled by an honest man. If Senator
Thurston Is successful In Inducing President
McKlnley to give you that appointment ho
will Induce the president to appoint a cow
ardly slanderer and a liar.
Respectfully submitted for your careful
consideration. JOHN M. THAYER.

The location of the Oma.hi1 ball park Is
fltlll In doubt , but the Indications are that
It will bo decided on before Sunday , and
In that case the task ot preparing the
grounds ( or the eoaecu will begin promptly
Monday morning. Manager O'Drlcn has been
looking over a new site. This Is the pretty
stretch ot unoccupied ground Immediately
north of Ames avenue and wett of Twenty-
fourth street. While this U ten * minutes'
ride further from the center of the city
than the Paul street grounds , the natural
adaptability of the site la sufficient to affect
the distance to traverse. Quite a number
of the fans went out to see the grounds
.and they agree with Manager O'Brien that
they can bo made the finest ball park In
the Western league. There Is all the room
that can bo required and the topography of
the ground Is admirably suited for the pur
pose. While the location Involves a some
what longer trip than Omaha people are
ccustomed to , both the Sherman avenue
nd the Twenty-fourth ( street lines reach
Irectly to the grounds and Manager O'Drlcn
hloks that patroni will be compensated
or the additional ride by the Ideal
urroundlngs that they will find when they
et there. The land belongs to George Ilcag-
and , < vho Is out ot town , but Is expected
10 mo today. As there Is no apparent reason
vhy ( lie grounds should not be leased at
reasonable figure , It Is presumed that there
111 bo no great difficulty In securing them
! the Bchcmo to secure the Paul street
rounds with the addition of a half block ot
djacont territory should fall through. The
management prefers the Paul street location
n account of its accessibility , but In case
ufflrlont rjo.ii cannot be obtained there it Is
ulte willing to accept the Ames avenue nlte.
'his Is about twanty-twa minutes' ride from
lie postofllco and Is closer to the bustnces
Istrlct than any of the Western league
rounds except those at Detroit.
