special agent has developed the fact that
a decree of court, supposed to have been
granted in 1S79, divorcing W. J. Ashley of

was a forgery.
Ashley, a veteran, disappeared and his
wife, later on, obtained a widow's pension
on supposed proofs of her husband's death.
Subsequently the pension department lo

to whom he claimed to be married, pro
ducing a decree of divorce from the

Dr. Oeorga L. Miller Lectures on Early
History of Oitj.
TELLS OF HARDSHIPS F PIONEERS
Recalls Extraordinary -Work of
Bolldlnir Union Paelne at Rate
of Front Two to Five
Dr. George L. Miller delivered a lecture
last evening in the Castellar Presbyterian
church on the subject of "Omaha Fifty
Tears Ago and Now," under the auspices of
the Christian Cltlienahlp committee of the
Christian Endeavor society. Dr. Miller wss
Introduced to the large audience In a happy
address by Corliss F. Harper, chairman of
Dr. Miller, who wss born and educated In
New Tork, first saw the present site of
Omaha In 1854, after a long atage ride of
320 miles from Keokuk, la. The rolling
prairie made him feel lonesome In contrast
with the beautiful Adirondack forests of
New Tork. This was in October, 1854. Hs
said that at that time there waa not a
white' person, except at Indian agencies. In
the vast atrip of country extending from
the Canadian line down through Nebraska
and Kansas, and from the Missouri river
to nearly the Rocky mountains. The popu
lation of the Omaha of that time consisted
of nine white people, Including one little
girl of about 6 years. There waa a scatter
ing population along the eastern edge of
Iowa, but western low waa a wilderness.
Weary Joaraey Across Iowa.
The average Journey across Iowa In those
days consumed five days and four nights.
The chief population, of course, waa made
up of Qmaba Indians, who afterwarda be
came Involved In a prolonged war with the
Stoux and Pawnees.
When Dr. Miller crossed the Missouri
river the father of the little girl mentioned
waa building a house of clapboards at what
Is now Twelfth and Farnam streets. John
M. Thayer, who afterwards became gov
ernor of Nebraska, next built a house In
the following year. The houses previously
constructed were really dugouta without
floors and even what are now considered
the simplest conveniences.
Dr. Miller established himself In the
course of time near what Is now the cor
ner of Twenty-fourth and Cuming streets.
Governor Cuming, while territorial secre
tary, appointed Dr. Miller clerk of the ter
ritorial counoll. He paid Governor Cum
ing an eloquent tribute aa being a man of
most remarkable attainments, whose pre
dictions as to the future prosperity of Ne
braska and the west generally have been
verified with singular exactness.
Vision of Marvelsai Changes.
"Omaha waa fortunate," said Dr. Miller,
In having at the very beginning of Its
existence a number of men who had a high
conception of the true foundations of a
prosperous and well-governed common
wealth. They aeemed to have a vision of
the marveloua changes the future would
bring about and they had the principles of
high personal character and sound morale,
coupled with splendid energy and deter
mination, to hold them steady In the many
exciting perloda attending the building up
of Omaha from a few dugout residences to
the time when rivalries were overcome, and
Omaha began her latter-day prosperous
period. It waa the work of these men who
made the Omaha of today 'possible, and. In
deed, they had much to do with the de
velopment of the atate at large, not only
In politics and commerce, but in the estab
lishment of public schools and churches.
"But the men were able to take care of
themselves. The highest tribute due to
heroism must be paid to the faithful, loyal
and pious mothers of those early days.
They were, after all, the true founders of
the great state of Nebraska. Most of them
are now sleeping in the cemetery, as Is
also the faithful, loving partner of my am
bitions and struggles."
Rivalry for Railroad.
Dr. Miller rapidly referred to the rival
ries that sprang up In connection with the
construction of the Union Pacific railway.
Omaha had waited fifteen yeara for a rail
road and telegraph. He related how Gen
eral Sherman waa given an excursion on
the railroad which George Francis Train
had called "horrible and' alow Jogging."
The seata were empty nail kegs. Dr. Mil
Her related that General Sherman said he
did not expect to live to aea the railroad
completed to the Pacific, but It waa only
a few yeara afterward when General Sher
man rode from Omaha to San Francisco in
a Pullman car. Dr. Miller recalled what
he considered the most extraordinary feat
of human energy of modern times, the
building of the Union Pacific at the rate
of from two to five miles a day.
. Dr. Miller waa addressing himself chiefly
to the young people and all through the
lecture ran a train of suggestions to young
men and women. He deplored the too
widespread Idea that the young people of
today did not have aa good opportunities
for making themselves prosperous aa the
pioneers of the country. He said the con
dltlona attending business today afford far
auperlor chances of success, ao long as the
young Imitated with unyielding tenacity of
purpose the aound moral principles that
controlled the pioneer of Omaha and Ne
braska generally. High character, he aald,
coupled with application. In any honest
employment, ia the best capital to have In
the struggle for success, and with those
given, auccesa In any line of Industry is

The tannery, glove factory and wool
pulling establishment of William Topp,
now situated at Johnstown, N. Y., and em
ploying 176 hands, will be moved to Omaha
within the present year, provided a fund of
$16,000 for the purchase of a site can bs
raised by subscription. Mr. Topp, who has
been In the city for some days, has signified
his readiness to make the move It a tree
site is furnished for hla factory In Omaha,
and a committee of the Commercial club
has taken up the task of raising tbe neces
For some time Mr. Topp has realised that
the successful continuation of his business
could be best assured by a removal to the
west, the territory from which he has for
years drawn the raw material used in the
products of his factory. It haa been his
custom to make frequent trips to western
cities for the purpose of purchasing raw
material, and on a recent visit to St. Joseph
he Intimated to business, men of that city
his contemplation of the west as a suitable
place for his manufacturing plant. The f '..
Joseph men seised the opportunity at onc
and offered Mr. Topp a free alte and a cash
bonus If he would locate In their city. The
manufacturer also received a liberal propo
sition for the location of bis plant at To
pe a, Kan.
Cornea to Omafcau
Whtle considering the St. Joseph and To-
peka propositions, Mr. Topp came to Omaha
for the purpose of buying pelts from the
packers, and to aome of them he suggested
his probable removal to aome western city.
Tbe matter was Immediately brought to the
attention of the Commercial club and a
committee of that organization lost no time
In taking Mr. Topp Into its confidence. The
advantages of Omaha as a place for the
manufacture of leather goods were quickly
and distinctly pointed out to the easterner.
It was shown that Omaha was not only a
primary market for hides and pelts, but
that more Jobbers in leather goods could bo
reached from thla point within a day'a ride
than from any other city.
Being convinced that Omaha waa the heat
plaoe In the west for the location of his
faotory, Mr. Topp told the local committee
that he would not ask a cash bonus aa a
consideration for hla removal to thla point,
but, In view of the offers that had been
made to htm by St. Joseph and Topeka, he
thought thla city ought to furnish a site
free of cost to him. In thla the Omaha men
agreed with him-and at a meeting of the
Commercial club executive committee on
Thursday it was decided to undertake the
task of raising by subscription a fund auffl
clent to purchsse a suitable site for the
buildings proposed to be erected by Mr,
Selects Snitable Site.
After looking about tbe city, Mr. Topp
has selected a tract of two acres just south
of the Meti brewery as a suitable location.
Thla property belongs to P. E. Her and his
price for it la understood to be $16,000. Mr.
Her has already subscribed $1,000 for the
purchase of the site for the new factory
and the subscription holds good even if
Mr. Topp should finally decide not to take
the Her land.
Mr. Topp says that aa aoon aa the alta la
furnished he will begin work upon tbe
buildings and will first open the tannery,
removing the wool-pulling business later
and finally starting the manufacture of
gloves, as he does not desire to abandon
the Johnstown plant until the Omaha plant
ia completely equipped for work. In addition
to making giovea he will prepare hldea for
the manufacture of fur garments and this
branch of the trade will be developed as
rapidly aa possible. The experienced tan,'
nera and glove makers now ia the employ
of the house In New Tork will be brought
to Omaha, but employment will be given to
about 160 men and women of the city aa
soon as the business is well under way.
