CI Be Bide U7 DISASTERS ON THE LAKES Closing Year the Moat Fatal In History ( Fresh Water Xavlcatlon. the Death took a heavier toll from the men navigating the great lakes during the sea son Just closed than In any previous year 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 ing. v The list of dead In 1KM was sixty-six, in 1W It was eighty-eight; ninety-five In 1S9S. sn even 100 In 199. 110 rn 1900, 12 in 1901, 140 In 1902, ninety-four In lfcG and forty-nine In 1904. Last year but two sailors lost their lives In what might be called shipwrecks. This year the number lost In storms wss 124. Lake Krle. which led the list of dead for a number of years, tho past season gave place to Lake Superior, where ninety-five were lost, as compared with forty for lAke Erie, thirty-eight for Lake Huron, 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 sions and four committed sulcitie. Four died on shipboard from exposure or natural causes. Of the millions of passengers carried on lake boats but two were lost. One was a suicide and the other passenger simply dis appeared. Of the three storms which so largely in creased the list of dead the one of a fort night ago Is considered by vesselmen as perhaps the 'tnoetf dangerous gale on the great lakes for a decade during the season of navigation. 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 am before this' gale and contributed enor- , inously to the money losses as well as to the loss of life. What is known ss the September storm cost forty lives, the Octo ber storm cost an equal number, while the great gale of November M added thirty-six. Last year there was not a single storm of any Importance. dome changes In the weather bureau serv ice regarding the display of storm signals Is considered necessary ty vesselmen In order to get the full benefit of that Im portant government work. No signals whatever were displayed for the September storm, and the signals for the November storm were hoisted too late to be of much value to a large number of vessels which were exposed to the full force of the gale In mldlake. The custom of captains of, large and powerful steel steamers to pay no attention tu storm warnings also has come In for considerable criticism. Chicago Record-Herald.

STLCIAL TAXES FOR IVPROVEMENTS nallroad laborer Instantly Killed br the tllpplaa- of a Jark with Whtrh He Wcrklnt on Freight tar. The. city council met last nlaht in an adjourned session from last wi-ea Monday I 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. J. M. Tanner of the South Omaha Daily Democrat was given the city printing.. It was decided that the bid of the Dally Re publican could not be considered, us the , A , ... . ... 1 charter required that such a paper should . . , ... be in existence for fifty-two weeks. All for fifty-two weeks. All the bids for the official stationery were thrown out, as none of them wore com plete. They will lie readvertised at a later date. The bids of the various companies for feed, hay, coal, etc., were read, but were all referred to the finance committee. The council then adjourned, to meet again next Saturday night 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 to the stock yards representatives, which outline the desires of the people as they appear to the commission. Another meet ing Is flxed for next Thursday night. At this meeting the representatives from the stock yards und packers will be present In conference. Two Patrolmen Appointed.

Two camels hunched beside him, slowly chewing. They swayed their long necks to stare at the lights. Mournful, solitary looking beasts they were. They crouched on the desert with their knees folded under them, snd we passed near enough to see them flap their scrubby little tails. But the man never moved. We watched him till he slipped out of sight. Tt grew colder and the loneliness un bearable. But yon could not even think of sound. There was nothing but the night and the desert, and they bound you snd would not let you stir. I'erhaps I slept. When l looked again we were In open water with a low. sleep ing town behind us. A melancholy spot with half a doxen feeble lights. Sues It was. A cold wind struck across It and made me shiver. Just then our searchlight dropped its hood snd sent greet fingers of light into the blackness ahead. Out of the south came snother light, powerful and yellow, but poking snd peering In a helpless way like something lust. Then both lights van ishedand the trouble In the sky meant dawn. There were mountains faintly jagged sgalnst the Rky with the moon slipping pale and dim behind them. While still she hung, cold and empty-looking, the moun tains flushed at their baseband over in Arabia the sun come rolling up. There was no more night after that.

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 street, by Patrolman Morrison, on Infor 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 hard for me to break the attachment, particularly as Detweiler continued his at tention with letters, long-distance tele phone calls and personal visits. I have three boxes of his letters with ma and I Intend to keep them, although be asked n(e last evening to destroy them. He Induced me to corns to Omaha with the under stsndlng I wss to get a position here. Snspeeta a Plot. "I registered at the Lange hotel last Saturday and he called on me about 2 a. m. Tuesday. His two brothers were with the oilleers when they called and I believe the affair was put up by Detweiler to shield himself and protect himself, as It was mentioned in the papers last Friday that I left Lincoln without telling my mother of my whereabouts." 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. "Give the girl the benefit of the doubt In the matter. I would not care to contra dict anything she might say." This succinct statement,, was made by Detweiler Tuesday afternoon when asked what he had to say. ndden Kndlna: of Affair. A sudden end came to the promised sen sational proceedings as a result of the ar rest of Charles R Detweiler of Omaha and Miss Netta De Voll, aged IS, of 35 North Twelfth street, Lincoln, In a room at the Lange hotel at 3 o'clock yesterday morning. After a lengthy and, at first, stormy Inter view between the mother of the girl and a brother of Detweiler, In the office of Cap tain Haxe at the police station, Mrs. De Voll took her daughter and hurrying to a train returned to Lincoln last night. The affair la probably closed and It Is not likely I that there will be any further proceedings ! In the case. SUNSET OF PULLMAN SLEEPER Patents llnve Kiplred nnd n Wonder Cireete the Wrnri Traveler. rvr 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 i 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 have U .wallowed up. Patent, have , bn annulIou. competition ha. been sup- -..-j th- hnm..,. h r:,n...... I i t 'vi a tuss j , ivn.iS( (.hit a uiininii trUKt prat.t Ically without a patent, nil having expired. Any rosd is at liberty to hulM Urn own Mleenera and a few flVHtemii I have made a success of it. 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, wrench Instead of a bit forming the busi ness end, attaches It to a counter-sunk nut and bores away. I'p from the depths -a cast steel chamber beneath the floor f rise two exquisite beds, ready made for the occupants; white sheets. Mg. clean pillows, white blsnkets. felt mattresses as light ss tn w flakes, and steel springs un der ail. Watch In hand, you time Mason. In ex actly one minute and twenty seconds the two berths sre ready, the section Incloeed with curtains. The chairs? t hsd almost forgotten to say that two sre placed on their sides In the steel chamber vacated by the berths, where they remain until the section is returned to its hiding place. When all the berths sre made up there Is net a chair In sight. It takes the average Pullman porter from twenty to thlrtv minutes to make up the old-style Pullman berth. And what do you get? A board called a blanket weighing about thirty-five pounds (In Imsglnation), made of horse blanket material and of a color guaranteed to show no dirt; two little dalis of cotton called pillows Did you order a brass bed on the Colum bia? Mason gives his brace a few turns, when. Phoenlx-llkn from the ashes that Is, from the track rises a dainty little affair ; ready for conveying you into the arms of ; Morpheus. My, my! Think of the ad- ' vanced possibilities of Harlem flats! Screw j your bed out of the floor at night, screw It i back In the morning! When all trains are operated by electricity Mason will press a button snd bring tip berths and brass beds i In less than forty seconds. Steel chambers und or the csr are strong and perfectly ventilated, delightfully wanned, dust proof, cinder proof and moth proof. The fresh air streaking through cleans the bedding. The stowsge in these receptacles of all bedding and the absence of weighty compartments tn the top of the car lower the center of gravity to the point of safety. The Columbia will never torple over. The Pullman rolls down embank ments and often lands bottom upward. The Columbia weighs 5,000 pounds less than the Pullman of like design. Mr. Fluinmer says that he Is willing to go Into a colli sion with the Columbia as his battleship, and will cut , through a whole train of Pullmans. You enter the Columbia, finding it a par lor chalr car. Suddenly it Is converted into a sleeping cur. und as suddenly casts off the aspect of the dormitory and becomes a dining car. Forty men can smoke in It hour after hour without offending the non smoker. By some peculiar trick of ventila tion the smoke dlHuppcars through the roof. New Y"ork Press. From the West, fUast.
