How the List Works Oat.
Those In charge found themselves with
juat forty names for .singles, Fred Bhep
hard and O. A. Loveland of Lincoln ' hav
ing decided not to play until the doubles,
when they will be a team. These forty
men are paired off as lUted, numbers 1 and
2 being matched together, I and 4, and so
on. The total of forty, however, necessi
tates a preliminary round, In order to eveu
the number up for working down to the
aoml-final end finals. Sixteen men, there
fore, were drawn to play this preliminary.
That would leave Just eight to go In with
the other twenty-four, making thirty-two In
11 for the first round proper.
, These sixteen begin wlfh W. K. Prowett,
who Is number thirteen In the list, and
end with William McNeil of Sioux City,
la., number twenty-eight on the list Those
tpalrs, Prowett and Oilman, Carey and
Brown, and so on down to Ashcraft and
McNeil, will play off the preliminaries this
afternoon. Meanwhile, the other twenty
four are given a bye until Tuesday, when
reinforced by the eight winners out of the
preliminary rouod they will begin the first
Interesting; Karly Matefcea.
The arrangement of the list wss ex
tremely interesting. As the men are paired
It is easy to pick the players who will win
cut to tbe seml-finsls on the basis of form,
'which, of course, is not infallible. In the
first eight namea C. S. Peters of Chicago
hould come out, although Carter Wilder of
Kansas City may give him a bard run. In
the next quarter, Including the namea of
T. S. Blatr, through Earl Farnsworth,
comes a beautiful fight. In the very first
'round Conrad Young, champion of Omaha,
Is matched against W. Q. Barker of Ar
kansas City, Ark., who, aa a New England
champion, beat the great Lamed some
years ago. Then down at tbe bottom stands
Earl Farnsworth, who will undoubtedly
play the winner of the Young-Parker match.
The undoubted ability of all three players
makes it Impossible to say anything more
definite than that one of them will come
out of this quarter for the semi-finals.
Even at that some say that T. 8. Blatr of
St. Louis, who leads the quarter, wilt be
trongly In the running.
In the third quarter are found F. R.
Sanderson of Galesburg, E. N. Ashcraft of
Chlrsgo, Ike Raymond of Lincoln, George
Howell of Sioux City and Jerome McQee
among the promlnenta. Ashcraft should
pull out ahead In this quarter. The last
eight names would seem to necessitate a
predlotion that F. E. Sheldon of Kansas
City 'would be the winner there. On that
basis of prognostication there will be
Peters and Ashcraft of Chicago, Sheldon
and either Farnsworth, Young or Parker for
the four men In the aeml-flnala.
Visitors at the Courts.
Practically all these players were at tbe
Field club Sunday afternoon, and were bus
ily slslng esch other up, though none
played. All tbe visitors were extreme In
their praises of the Field club courts,
and say that a better place for the tour
nament could scarcely be found. The
strangers came to mostly on the morning
trains, and were met at the stations by
Flsld club men. The Millard hotel, their
headquarters, presents an animated and
athletic appearance. Devotees of golf and
baseball and bowling had little place at the
Field club Sunday, for all the talk was ten
nis. This preliminary around the singles will
begin at 8:30 ibis afternoon. Then Tues
day morning play begins at 9:30, and will
continue both morning and afternoon until
the tournament is finished. Drawings for
the doublea will not be made until tonight
or Tuesday, as there Is still some doubt In
the osscs of a few palrtnga.

A special meeting of the Board of Edu
cation has been called for tonight, and It
is the Intention of some of the members to
transact business of Importance providing
there Is a quorum. Repairs to school build
ings, Including interior and exterior, will
come up, and then there will be allowing
ef money to contractors for work already
done on additions to school houses.
Colonel Lott and others want a boiler
Inspector, but In this the city may take the
lead, for the reason that the suggestion
was made some time ago to the city fathers
than an Inspector of boilers is a neceaalty,
particularly on account of the number of
Janitors who have been chosen lately by
tbe board. It Is asserted In official circles
that some of the Janitors know nothing
about the management of a heating plant
What the council wishes to do Is to have
all of the engineers, or those who have
charge of boilers to sppear before a board
of Inspection and pass an examination. If
this Is done, it Is asserted, there will be
more of a feeling of safety among parents
who send children to tbe public schools.
Some of the school board members wish to
work In a combination and elect a truant
officer and a boiler Inspector. This Is not
considered practicable by some, and it may
never go through, for the reason that tbe
mayor and city council will hardly ac
credit a school district boiler inspector,
even if elected, appointed and placed upon
the pay roll. A city official aald last night
that the Board of Education might elect
all the truant officers it wanted to, but
whan It comes to an Inspection of boil
ers the city ordinances and the charter
will prevail, whether the board likes tbe
proposition or not. 1
No one who Is conversant with local af
fairs denies that there is need of a boiler
Inspector, but the trouble In the past haa
been that the packers objected. Then came 1
the plan to pass an ordinance cutting out
the packers and ths Stork Yards company.
This ordinance was decided to be out of ths
queatlon, and so the matter now stands.
In talking about thia proposition last
night, S- member of the council said:
"Should the Board of Education elect a
boiler Inspector and tbe council do the
same there would be a constant conflict
of authority. The elty will never permit
any Inspector named by the Board of Edu
cation to Inspect boilers and give a cer
tificate to Janitors for the reason that there
Is too much politics in the school board.
and certificates might be Issued to parties
who cannot pass an examination."
If the council and the Board of Educa
tion gets into an altercation over this mat
ter eouieililug uf iutT&t may ccsis up.
Cattle Receipts Heavy.
The livestock market here laet week
was notable Tor Its heavy receipts, the
total for the week being 19,175 head. Of
these nearly if not quite 90 per cent were
western range cattle, comparatively few
corn fed cattle being on sale. Aa
compared with the same date last year
the cattle receipts show an Increase of
24.038 head and hog receipts an increase
of 41.258 head. There Is still a deficit of
60,000 sheep, but this le rapidly being
wiped out. Heavy receipts of cattle and
hogs are looked for this week. In order
to properly handle the big receipts of
cattle there has been an Increase in the
brand Inspection force and from thia time
cn until the close of the western ship
ping season additional experienced brand
Inspectors will remain on duty here.
Another Damage Bolt Threatened.
Tbe city Is apparently In for another
damage suit. It is the same old story of
washouts and holes in the streets left
unprotected. A few evenings ago Dr. James
A. Kelly was driving along Thirty-eighth
avenue Just north of Q street,, when his
horse fell Into a hole, tipping over the
vehicle and throwing the physician and
a friend out. The shafts of the buggy
were broken and both men sustained slight
bruises. It took considerable time- to ex
tricate the horss and the animal has
since been under the care of a veterinary
aurgeon and cannot be used for several
Want Alley Graded.
Since the city haa been so slow In secur
ing dirt to fill washouts, property owners
In the eastern part of the city, and espe
cially those who live on Missouri avenue
have suggested to the members of '.he
eouncll that the alley between Sixteenth
and Seventeenth streets and Missouri ave
nue and M street be graded and the dirt
used to Oil some of the big boles in Mis
souri avenue. It is estimated that 2,000
yards of dirt can be moved from this
alley without any delay and at a very
small cost to the city. What the offi
cials say, however. Is that the only way
the alley can be graded Is to go through
the regular form of a petition and have
the coat taxed up to the abutting prop
erty. George Parks Is now looking after
the petition and expects to have It In
shape to present to the council within a
week or two.
Broadwell Makes Transfer.
On Saturday Frank A. Broadwell, rep
resenting the J. M. Glasgow estate, -transferred
to tbe city of South Omaha the
property at Twenty-third and M streets.
This ground was purchaaed by the elty

he fcund his liberal pocket empty, and asked
John Tansey, ons of ths recipients of his

refusal to remit the rancher grew sore and
spoke bitterly of base Ingratitude, The po

and a negro named Robert Walker were ar

He also owned to having spent nearly $100

TAKES AMMONIA BY "MISTAKE
Old Henry Patterson Fonnd In Coal
Shed In Critical Con.
Old Henry Patterson aald that he got it
for alcohol in a drug store and that the
clerk made a mistake. At any rate he had
a bottle of commercial ammonia, from
which he took a good nip, before he no
ticed the ammonia bouquet. Then he was
in much pain and, he says, atarted for tbo
house of a doctor he knows, to get relief,
but soon became so weak that he could
only crawl through the fence and Into
the coal shed. Luckily Henry waa seen
from the house by one of the occupants,
who thought him a hurglar and telephoned
for the police. These found old Henry
and look him to the station, where Surgeon
Nick attended him. At a late hour be
seemed to be resting easily and out of
any danger. The shed where he was found
Is on the premises of Dr. Porter, at 1824

CASPER. Wyo., Aug. 17. (Special.) Tbe
location of the famous Lost Cabin gold mine,
for which miners and prospectors have been
searching for years, has been found. This Is
the belief of a party of Buffalo miners that
have been prospecting on the south branch
of Otter creek, sixty miles southwest of
Buffalo, for five or sis years, and who last
week discovered rich veins of gold ore In
that vicinity; also what they believe to he
the workings of the now famous Lost Cabin
Albert E. Sutton and Barnes C. Burrla
hava been at work la the district far s lacg
time, as have many other miners who be
lieved the story of the lost mine, and who
were confident of some day discovering the
workings from which many fortunes were
said to have been secured In early days.
Each year the men secured enough float to
pay for their time and labor, but not until
a few weeks ago did they And anything that
looked like a rich strike.
Tbe discovery is a drift In the side of a
nearly perpendicular cliff about fifty feet
high. The workings are In carbonate,
which are so rich that a dollar's worth of
gold can be picked out of a square Inch of
the wall with a pocket knife.
On one of the walls Is the following In
Gorham and Wllhelm Arbach,
There has been a Christian name before
tbe surname Gorham, but It cannot be de
ciphered. Thia inscription Is taken ss conclusive
evidence that the Lost Cabin mine Itself,
which waa believed to be nothing more than
a crevice in a high cliff from the stories told
by Indiana, has really been found.
When the discovery became known In Buf
falo and the aurroundlng country there was
a rush to the scene, and by this time fully
2,000 people have gazed upon tbe wonder
ful cliff and tbe golden crevice In its per
pendicular side, while hundreds of acrea of
ground In the vicinity have been staked off.
Since the discovery the story haa been
told that six years ago an old man arrived
from Buffalo from the' east, and In company
with four young men left for Otter creek
on a prospecting tour. To some acquaint
ances hf said he was one of the original
discoverers of the Lost Cabin gold mine,
that his party was attacked by Indians and
all aave himself killed. He escaped from
the red men, but nearly died from exposurs
and hunger. For several months his mind
was a blank, and not for many years could
he recall the location of the mine, which
he described as being fabulously rich. Hs
spent several weeks in the country, but was
unable to find the mine, or at least he told
the young men of his party that hs saw
nothing that looked like it. At Wells post-
office, enroute to Buffalo from Otter creek,
tbe old man died of heart dtaease, and If he
had rediscovered the famoua mine tha secret
died with him.
MAY NOT HAVE BEEN KILLED
Many Conflicting Reports Received
Concerning Recent sheep
ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo., Aug. IT. (Spe
cial.) Many conflicting reporta have been
received from tha New Fork country, the
acene of the recent raid, slaughter of aheep
and reported killing of a herder. The latest
story is to the effect that the trouble
was precipitated by foreign flockmastsrs;
that ths number of sheep killed waa about
,000 Instead of 4.SO0. and that Sam Oule
tletlez, the Mexican herder, reported killed,
probably left the country. No one saw
him go, however, and no one can be found
who has seen him since, the raid.
Affairs in the New Fork country are
now quiet and there are no feare of
further trouble. The sheepmen. It Is un
derstood, are willing to respect tbe deed
line, and so long aa they do that they will
not be molested by the cattlemen.

" 'Age cannot wither nor custom atale

"But its true," protested tbe leather
merchant, drawing up a rocker and sink

like much of a fisherman, and a liar doesn't
usually show it not If hs's much of a
liar so I was rather Inclined to disbelieve
him myself when hs told me about catch

thirty-two bites, let alone thirty-two fish,
since I've been here."
"Fish bites, I suppose you mean," sug
gested the Judge.
"Certainly," assented the leather mer

thirty-two fish, with a liberal discount tor

that the string had broken loose from
the boat and he bad lost them all seemed a
"It did. Indeed." agreed ths Judge. "There
is no precedent for letting mors than one
fish get away at a time. Testimony intro
duced to that effect should at least be sup
ported by the affidavits of witnesses. This
man offered no material evidence In cor
roboration of the story, I bellevet"
"He showed tbe rod he caught 'em with,
told tbe number, the kind and the probable
weight, and offered to lick any man who
said it wasn't so," explained the leather
"I don't think I would have said any
thing about It, myself" said the Board of
Trade man. "I'm sorry he told It."
"I'm not." said the leather merchant, de

as it happened it turned out all right. He

"I'm nothing it I'm not persevertng,"
continued the leather merchant. "And this
afternoon I thought I'd try It again. I took
minnows and worms and flies, all three.
I thought I'd suit tbe appetite' of the most
fastidious fish that ever wiggled a tall. If
there was a tall wiggling in the lake which
I doubted. I got out Into the middle of the

What do you think I had got?"
"A can of salmon, maybe," hazarded the
Board of Trade man.
"It was Simpson's string of thirty-two
fish." said the leather merchant, imprea
sively. "You see, he'd strung them on a
thin line that didn't Interfere with their

They swam out to tha man easily, but
