by the Treasury department to come to
Omaha , but who was sent to the front when
the war broke out. Captain Knowles

Lieutenant McClellan has Just been de
al led to Omaha after returning from par-
iclpatlon In the Cuban campaign. He says
hat the Spaniards had at least an admirably
equipped and rfilclent signal service. They
vuro c-speclally expert at heliograph and
moke signaling and every movement of the
\mcrlcan troops that could be observed was
Ignaled with exceptional success. When
he United States signal service corps was
pattolllng the beach they found that their
movements were signaled with uniform ac
curacy. If the patrol turned to the east two
lulck flnfihes revealed the fact and were an-
iwered from the fortifications. If they turned
o the west one flash conveyed the Informa-
, lon. The Americans experimented a good
deal along this line and soon got go they
could understand the Spanish signals as well
as the dons themselves. Lieutenant McClellan
3is that his observation was that the Span-
ards were always ready to fight , but his ex
perience with the Cubans did not give him a
cry high opinion of them.

SOUTH OMAHA NEWS.
Arthur Shrlver , for a number of years
past an employe of the Union Stock Yard
company , died yesterday afternoon while
sitting in a chair at James Novacck's sa
loon , Twentieth and N streets , from PR
pprs found In the pockets of the deceasec
after the coroner bait , taken charge of th
remains It is thought Shrher committee
suicide. On a card scribbled In lead peucl
was the following note :
This Is to you , Lucy. I can't come home
My best wishes for you all. I have prayee
for us all. ARTHUR.
In one pocket was found a bottle of chlo
roforra wlUi a portion of the contents gone
According to the label the drug was pur
chased at Aloe & Penfold's , Omaha. Sine
Thursday last Shrivor had been desponden
and he had been drinking considerably. I
Is supposed that financial troubles causci
the despondency , for Ills homo life was re
ported to be a happy one. In a wallet of
the person of the deceased was found a not'i
from R. T. Maxwell , calling attention t
the non-payment of certain notes pertaining
to property In the eastern portion of th
city. Aside from this It Is stated tha
Shrlver had been suffering for several da >
with a severe toothache and It is posslbl
the drug was secured by telling the druj
clerk that it was to be used for some sue !
Those who were about the saloon dutliij
the afternoon stated that Shrlver came li
a short time after dinner and seated htm
self In a chair. In a half hour or so som
one noticed his fare and made the re
mark that ho was dead. This le
to an Investigation and the sur
mlse proved true. Undertaker Browe
was notified and the body was immediate ! ]
cared for. Coroner Swanson came dowt
shortly after 4 o'clock and after looking
the effects over decided to hold nn Inquest.
The deceased was for three years a mem
ber of the Doard of Education , Inning re
linquished his seat on July 1 last. He was
well thought of hero and had many friends
who will regret to learn of his death. Tot
ten or a dozen years the deceased had been
connected with the stock yards company ,
for the last few years occupying the position
of key man. A widow and two children arc
left. The homo of the family was at Thir
teenth and I streets. Deceased was a mem
ber of the Modern Woodmen of America and
receipts In his pockets showed that his dues
were paid up to October 1.
After talking with some of the relative *
of the deceased Coroner Swanson decided
that It would be best to hold a post mortem ,
To this duty ho assigned Drs. Schlndel and
Davis. An Inquest will be held Monday
the Ilnte of Itn Year.
Ever since the stock yards commenced
business hero the fiscal year of the concern
has ended on November 30 and commenced
on December 1 , This has caused consider
able confusion as all other yards commence
and close their fiscal years with the calendar
year. When comparisons of figures have
been made It has been necessary to either
deduct or add a month. Several complaints
have been made and General Manager Ken-
yon announced yesterday that hereafter the
Union Stock Yards company would conform
to the universal rule nnd commence and end
Us fiscal year with the calendar year.
