Closing Year the Moat Fatal In

Death took a heavier toll from the men

slnoe the coming of large boats. A total of
III- lives were lost. Of these lit! were
drowned off the ships during the three
great storms of the fall. The remaining
ninety-nlns were lost by falling overboard
and like causes.
Tn 19f4 the number of dead was forty
nine which went to the other extreme of
being the smallest on record. It was then
generally believed by marine men that the
large steel Steamers to which the traffic of
tlia lakes was going were so safe that a
serious loss of life on board them was out
of the question. In fact, vesselmen. claimed
that lake navigation was freer from loss
of life than any other great occupation.
All this was upset by the season Just clos

were lost, as compared with forty for

fifteen for Lake Michigan, ten for Lake
Ontario, eleven for the Detrolt-8t. Clair
river passage and six for the Boo passage.
Thirty-nine fell overboard and were
drowned and twenty met death by falling
into the hold. Fifteen were killed by acci
dents by machinery either on shipboard or
on docks and the loss of nln lives was due
to collision. Four were killed by explo

perhaps the 'tnoetf dangerous gale on the
great lakes for a decade during the season
The great steel ships, which were sup
posed to be able to breast any storm, were
absolutely powerless when without cargo
and standing tin against the fury of the
wind..,. They were driven like so much flot- j

nr.y -psion iroin last wr .tionaay i
for tne principal purpose of receiving the I
bids for the requisitions of the coming
year. Before taking; up this order of busi- i
ness several matter were disposed of. A
recommendation from the Hoard of Fire
and Police Commissioners for the purchase
of LOW feet of fire Hose wus Hied, as was
also a petition for the grading of F street
west of Twenty-sixth. The bond of I'. J.
King for the office of police Judge was
filed, after approval.
Three ordinances for levying a special tax
on properties benefited by permanent side
walks were passed. Two other ordinances
were passed, one authorising the issue of
Street Improvement bonds to the amount
of $2,200 to pay for the Improvements on
Seventh street north of Missouri avenue.
These Improvements extend to the south
Una of I street.
An ordinance to establish the grade of
Fifteenth street, from Missouri avenue to
J street, was passed.
A special tax was authorised on the prop
erty benefited by the permanent Improve
ments on Sixteenth street, - between Mis
souri avenue and J.
Warrants were ordered for the payment
of Qus Hamel tl.Ms.S. and to George Dun
comb $357.85, for putting In permanent side
walks. An auction was orderod for January 2,
1906, for the public sale of street Improve
ment bonds for district 23. This sale will
be held at p. m.
In the matter of bids for the heating and
plumbing of the new fire hall at Twenty
sixth and L streets, F, Thompson was
found to be the lowest and he wss awarded
the contract at $1.4.1.
The bids for the electric wiring were
considered too high and they were referred
to the building committee and to the ar
chitect for reconsideration.

McMannman Fined for Asaanlt.
The case of Tatrh-k McManaman and
Mathew Patton for assault and battery and
for robbery came up In police court yester
day afternoon. After a little discussion the
charge of robbery was dismissed and the
case of assault and battery was tried. This
charges the defendant with striking Harry
and Frank Draper while on the South
Omaha cars last Saturday night. The case
was In many ways a laughable affair.
Really It wss little more than a free-for-all
fight in which the Drapers appeared to be
thej unwilling victims. The court, after
spending three hours In examining the wit
nesses, fined Tatrlck McManaman $19, In
cluding costs. Patton was dismissed. The
attorney for the defense signified that tho
case would be sppealed.
Sewer Commission Conference.
The meeting of the citizens' sewer com
mission was held in Barrett's undertaking
parlor last night. The commission passed
a set of resolutions which will be submitted

Two camels hunched beside him, slowly

on the desert with their knees folded under

Charles IC. Detweiler and Miss Nettn De
Voll, l?-yar-old daughter of Mrs. De Voll
of 315 North Twelfth street, Lincoln, were
arrested st S o'clock Tuesday morning t
the 1-ange hotel, -3 South Thirteenth

mation furnished the police by the girl's
mother. Detweiler was charged at the city
Jail with being a suspicious character,
while the girl was placed In charge of Ihs
police matron on a charge of Incorrigibility.
Miss De Voll stated Tuesday morning
that Detweiler started to keep company
with her eight months ago st Lincoln on
the pretenses of being a single man.
"I learned to think much of Mr. Detweiler
and when I was told some time ago by a
friend that the man was married It wss

Advice was received at the Omaha police
station last Friday evening from Lincoln
to look for the girl.
Miss De Voll showed a number of letters
written by Detweiler to her. The effusions
are of the most passionate and gushing
nature, some of the expressions being,
"Darling. I have declared myself to you
and now you are In a position to act.
Yours with love and kisses." "Oh, baby,
darling sweetheart, the tears are streaming
down my face as I write this letter. Oh,
God, darling, I bow my head I have dared
to love you!"
Detweiler tir-ta Tragic.
Miss De Voll Intimated Tuesday morning
that Deweller recently threatened to take
his life should she go back on him.
The young woman, who Is quite pre
possessing, now declares she sees her mis
take, but maintains she is bitter against
the man who has deceived her.
Detweiler has a 5-year-old daughter.
Word comas from Lincoln that Mrs.
DeVoll, the girl's mother. Is outraged in
her feelings over her daughter's fate snd
will come to Omaha and push the case
against the man who deceived the girl.
In police court Tuesday morning Deputy
County Attorney Shotwoll filed a complaint
against Detweiler, charging the prisoner
with wife abandonment. The case has
not been set for hearing. The county at
torney stated the complaint was filed at
the instance of a brother of Detweiler.

The Pullman company turns out be
tween T0 snd 8u0 sleeping, dining and com
bination cars annually. Railroads art
forced to haul these cars over nearly 2oO..
urt miles of track and pay big rental!
! for the "privilege." The rentals aloni
J amount to about $350,000 a year. The road
that does not carry a Pullman Is severely
handicapped. The company pays 8 per
cent on a capital of 174.000.0110. For nearly
forty years the roads have been In abject
I slavery of the Chicago concern. All rivals

There Is now after years of litigation
another Richmond In the field, a palace
cur ss far ahead of the Pullman as the
Dcutschland !s ahead of the clipper ship
of half a century ago. It Is patriotically
called the Columbia, and is In operation
between New York and Philadelphia. For
several years it was used on Csnadian
roads, but now that Its standing has been
settled by the courts and the national
government has allowed all patents, It has
become an Institution of the I nlled States.
A contract wus made a few days ago
for twenty of these cars with one of
the leading railroad systems of th coun
try. fieeing Is believing. At Jersey City you
enter a beautifully decorated parlor car
containing some twenty-five comfortable
grass chairs on a green and white carpet.
The windows are broad, high and numer
ous. The chairs sre portable. A lavatory
st one end is so spacious that four women
ran make their toilets at the same time.
At the other end are most ample accom
modations for men. The kitchen, buffet,
cold storage, linen closets, etc., sre gen
erous. But there Is not the remotest hint,
sign or suggestion of a place to sleep.
You bought a berth check, but there ts
no berth. Yet you are assigned to this
csr. It looks queer. You begin soon to
wonder where you are to rest your head.
"Want to go to bed. sir?" The politest
of porters is Mason, a graduate of
Amherst college, black as the ace of
spades, chief demonstrator of the Columbia
under the tutelage of R. L. Spencer and
J. H. Pluninier. "Which car?" you ask.
"Right here. sir. Allow me to move your
chair." A space as long as a berth and
as wide Is cleared on one side of the car,
snd two trap doors are lifted to a vertical
position, forming a section from the top
to the bottom of the vehicle. Mason, hav
ing provided himself with a hand brace
about three and a half feet In length,

nut and bores away. I'p from the depths

the berths, where they remain until the
section is returned to its hiding place.
When all the berths sre made up there Is

Pullman porter from twenty to thlrtv
minutes to make up the old-style Pullman
