California refugees fleeing from the d-
vastatton wrosght by tempestuous element
ran into anotht-r riot -of conditions, on sn
Infinitely emaUei; scale, at .Union -station
yesterdsy, mhen rain, falling In torrents,
and hall desolated the tents erected for
The large crowd which came in about
noon was well cared for and then the rain
began to fall In torrents, with the result
that th nurses, women and doctors were
well snaked. Tarpaulins and canvas and
cots' were put over the supplies as far as
they Went, tiut the evening rnln and hail
completely flooded everything. The rain
and water 'went through the tents In great
streams. About thirty refugees were still
In the tents waiting for the rvenlng trains,
and these, as well the women, were forced
to stand on tire tables to keep their feet
Lunches ,hRd beep prepared for seventy
six on the, Rock Island train and 103 on
I'nlon Pacific train No. t. These had been
put In bags and were kept dry until the
arrival of th trains, when they were given
to the people on the cars and In the depot.
The relief committee fed 7X4 Monday and
guve clothing to a large number of these.
Many also were cared for by the nurses
and doctors. T)nse fed Monday mnke a
grand total of 2.367 who have been fed
since the camp wss started.
Sew Problem to Face.
A different proposition now confronts the
relief committee. From present Indications
no more full relief trains will come
through, but ma.ny will come In on every
regular train from the west s,nd ' these
must have attention. Superintendent Mor
ris is figurlok on some plan to divide the
work among the women so that some will
meet and prepare lunches for those coming
In on each train.
Mr. Morris has made arrangements with
th railroad companies to wire hlin the
number of people who will -want meals In
Omaha and also the medical needs of the
refugees on the various trains.
.A special .train bearing refugees arrived
on the I'nlon Pacific at 10:15. Monday morn
ing, and In spite of the drlsfllng rain many
of th faithful women of the city were on
the faithful wamen of the city- -were on
hand to see that they had plenty to eat,
and to fit out the needy with clothes.
. "Omaha and Evanston for me," said one
of the unfortunates. "That was a little
town, but they sat us down to r meal
that would have made a man think he was
In a swell notel. We hive bad plenty
to eat all along the long Journey, but the
thoughtfulness of ths Omaha people In
providing us with a change 6f clothing Is
most commendable. Bom -of the people
hav not been ahl -to chang" their, un
derwear and stockings. since .they, first put
them on when aroused -from-their, slum
bers by . the earthquake." '
Th City Steam laundry sent down a
whole wagonload of unclaimed clothing,
and the shirts and socks and handkerchiefs
were most acceptable. This laundry also
undertook to wash a wagonload of shirt
andclothlng which had become'sotled by
the rains ot't&sUat threek days'. ' '
;V iLltOe Comedy Eaaeted. ','
A little comedy was thrown into the sit-'
nation at th relief tents Monday . morn
ing when M. Ball and B. Jacobson, two
partners la the hotel business at 230 Powell
street, San Francisco, who lost their hotel
and al' their belongings by fire, except a
grip of good clothes which Ball had been
able to get out of the burning buildings,
met. They went Into the hospital tent to
get a pair of socks apiece and sat their
grip near the door. One of the nurses,
thinking this was a grip of clothing which
had been sent down, emptied the contents
onto the clothing plls. Two of th suits
were new and had never bepn worn
and worth $50 a piece.' These were Im
mediately chosen by some in need of cloth
ing, who then went out. Ball and Jacob
son returned for their grip and found It
empty. They immediately put up a howl
and a search was made with the result the
nurse remembered giving out the suits,
Detectlv Drummy went Into the refugee
camp for the clothes snd succeeded - In
finding on suit. Ball and Jacobson were
good naturvd about the matter and were
soon fitted out with new shirts and cloth-
Ing to replace those ost.
Shoes are a scarce article and many pairs
could be used to advantage. Soma of the
men and women coming in have their
shoes all burned and are badly 'In need
of covering for their feet. '
The Northwestern took out 160 on a spe
cial train and the rest will leave on th
Milwaukee this evening. Omaha supplied
lunches for those going on the special and
the Northwestern will se they ara pro
vided with coffee to go with the lunches,
which will be distributed by th train

JAMES E. BOYD DEAD
(Continued ' friTm Page On.)
for a tlm president of th Omaha Savings
. Mr. Boyd was selected as one of Douglas-county's
representatives In the con
stitutional convention of 1871, which made
a proposed constitutjoSi that was rejected
by popular, vote. , He was a delegate to
the constitutional convention of 1875, which
succeeded In framing a tollection of funda
mental laws acceptable to the people.' and
was chairman 'of the committee on rail
roads In both assemblies. He claimed
credit- for the "provision, authorizing the
state legislature to regulate freight nates.
In 1872 Mr. Boyd established the first
pork packing house-In Omaha, the location
being on the Missouri river a short distance
south of-tihe L.'nUiti .l'aclfic bridge. The
production . of the 'pianC".. was limited by
Inability, to' get 'otrf:.. -About $160,000 was
Invesped In. the rtyrpetstj, .which con
sumed about 60.00 aslnvkls in the year be
fore the plant'was destroyed by (Ira Jan
uary 18. 1KK0. It was rebuilt on a larger
scale and "m as packing 150,000 hogs annually
when sold In 1897.
BeglnalasT of Polltlral Career.
, The real political career of Mr. Boyd
began In. IS), - when.vsWvpubllo controversy
over the kind of Wtttr torks system to
be. .Installed Induce hint to accept the
nomination as-lH)iiictSiiar' la th Sixth
ward. He was supported by men who op
posed th "Holly. arstPhl" of water works,
which proposed to supply th city by direct
pressure. Its opponents contended for a
reservoir and part gravity system; and
th antagonism was:; Intensified by re
puted unsavory methods on the part of the
Holly promoters. Although the ward was
republican, Mr. Boyd, a democrat, was
elected, and assisted in preventing th ob
noxious water works contract and in re
ducing ' the proposed .rental of fir hy
drants from $100 to $M and $00 a year. He
was legislated out of office in a year, which
was to his liking, ss he did not care for
th office nor th presidency of the council
which he held.
"Edward Rosewater Is responsible for my
political life," said Governor Boyd. "He
was th leader of the men who Induced me
to go into the council to prevent the Holly
deal and It was through his Influence that
I was made mayor of Omaha the first tlm.
I can truthfully aay that I never sought
office. Not on of jny official acts was
ever affected by political aspirations to b
consummated In th future."
HI Service a Mayor.
H was nominated by th democrats- for
mayor In 1RS1 and with th support of Th
Bee succeeded in defeating his opponent,
Isaac 8. Hascall. by three votes to one:
Hts administration was very energetic
and the foundation of th present system
of - public Improvements, such as paving,
sewers, sidewalks and th like, was laid.
As mayor, Mr. Boyd visited many cities
In the quest of information regarding mu
nicipal work and endeavored to put what
he consdered the best Ideas Into use here.
H succeeded in effectually enforcing the
law raising saloon licenses from $100 to
$1,000 a year.
In 1583 Mr. Boyd received the democratic
vote In the legislature that elected General
C. F. Manderson Cnlted States senator.
Twa years later he accepted a non-partisan
nomination for mayor and was elected by
150 votes in a bitter contest with Patrick
Murphy, hla republican opponent.
Mr. Boyd was a delegate to th national
convention of 15S4, that nominated Grover
Cleveland, and cast his vote for th Suc
cessful contestant. He was made a mem
be of the national committee of th demo
cratic party from Nebraska and became
one of the democratic leaders, If not th
party leader In Nebraska, continuing In
such sttitude for nearly ten years. He was
a delegate to the national convention again
In 188, and for the third time In 1892 when
Cleveland was agam nominated.
Offered a High Hoaor.
"New York did not want Cleveland," said
Mr. Boyd speaking of this last convention.
"When the Illinois delegation went to the
delegates from New York, who, after a
passionate speech by Bourke Cochrsn, re
fused to applaud the choice of the con
vention, and consulted their wishes regard
ing a vie presidential candidate, they sere
told to go to hell. I am not saying they
followed this advice, but in quest of vie
presidential timber they waited on me and
told m the honor mas mine If I wished It
I replied that having been 'born In Ireland
I could not hold office. Adlal Stevenson
was nominated, and a you know, was
Mr. Boyd built what grew to b calld
"Boyd's old opera house," at the north
east corner of Fifteenth and Farnan streets
In 1880-tl. It had a seating capacity of
1.700, and was a fins theater at that time.
After all th famous contemporary players,
singers nd musicians bad appeared In It,
It was burned In the early nineties. Tho
present Boyd theater a five-story brick
building . t Seventeenth and Harney
Streets, was completed and opened Septem
ber 8. 18M. It cost r-50.0uu and Is th leading-
playhouse of th city.

Jams B. 'Boyd was lrtd governor of
Nebraska ,on th . democratic, ticket . to
laVO, rCjtlvUf 71, til Tij
tea to 70.117 lor J via
II. Towers, th Farmers' alllanc snd reo
ple' Independent candidate, and JM78 for
K D. Richards, th republican candidate.
The principal Issue of the contest wss a
proposal to abolish liquor traffic by con
stitutional amendment adversely voted
upon. Mr. Poyd opposed prohibition. His
Induction Into office wss turbulent, being
contested and accomplished with difficulty,
Powers' followers asserting there had been
fraud and Intimidation, and the republican
governor, John M. Thayer, endeavoring t
retain his office on the ground thst Mr.
Boyd was not eligible to serve as governor
by res son of defects In Ma -cltisenshlp.
The populist had a majority In Joint ses
sion of the legislature end the returns
Were canvassed and Mr. Boyd declared
elected only after Speaker Klder had been
served with a supreme court mandamus di
recting htm to take proceedings towards
this end. Mllltla occupied the corridors
of th cspltol to quell disorder. After
Governor Boyd had taken th oath and
filed his bond. January 8. 1891, Governor
Thayer refused to surrender the executive
apartments, plsclng guardsmen areund th
executive office to prevent eviction. He re
mained In his office all night. Other state
officers recognised Governjr Boyd, con
vened as the State Board of Lands and
Buildings and provided hlin with offices.
where he proceeded to exercise th func
tions of governor. 'Thayer did not vacate
the premises until January 15. He brought
quo warranto proceedings in the state su
preme court to oust Boyd, holding that
Boyd was Ineligible because both he and
his father Were born in Ireland, and that,
although the father may have taken out
his first naturalization papers many years
before, the naturalisation had not been
completed when the son wss elected gov
ernor of Nebraska; that the latter whenjf
elected was an alien, not naturalised by I
any court and not eligible to participate In
the rights of cltisenshlp. Thayer's conten
tion wss sustained In the. state supreme
court. Judges Norvall and Cobb making
the decision and Judge Maxwell dissenting.
The decision was handed down May 5 and
Governor Boyd surrendered the office - to
Thayer, who procured a writ of ouster.
Boyd took the case to the I'nlted States
supreme court on a writ of error. Febru
ary 1, 18S2. the United States supreme court
reversed the decision of the Nebraska su
preme court and declared Boyd eligible to
the office, both because his rights as a clti-
sen were established when the state was
admitted and by his prior unquestioned
assumption and execution of th privi
leges and responsibilities of a citizen.
Governor Thayer agnln surrendered the
office to Governor Boyd, and February 8 the
latter was reinstated to serve out his term.
The contest and the court decisions evoked
make one of the most Interesting chapters
in Nebraska's' political history.
