Fresh from the devastated Ban Francisco,
tha acna of hla new achievements of
honor, .Major Qenral Adolphu W. Gree
ly, commander of tha military Depart
ment of tha Pacific, reached Omaha Mon
day mornlna on hla war eaat. And lhl
"caJla tha fact that General Oreely had
Just arrived In Omaha on hla way to New
England to aea Ma daughter married, when

fa -aa steam could take him. Fie at onca
assumed charge of affairs for the govern
ment lit San Francisco and has Just left
there after, a. magnificent campaign of
roorcy and 'reconstruction.
"I am on my war east from San Fran
cisco and, will go through Washington, al
though I will take a rest for a while on
leave," said the general. "I am shortly to
relieve Lieutenant General H. C. Cor bin,
in command of the northern military divi
sion, and tha military posts hereabouts
will soon be under my supervision. My
headquarters Will be at St. Louis, though I
expect to visit Omaha frequently.
Great Progress at 'Frisco.
"I am glad to say that things are pro
gressing finely at San Francisco. I gave
up my part of the work July 1 and turned
It over to the civil authorities. I was,
'of coarse, much pleased to have the peo
ple assure me that I had rendered them
uaeful service. It was an exceptional ex
perience and one which I hope they will
never . have to pass through again. At
first wo had an average of over 250,000
persons to feed and provide for for
period of probably two weeks. The strain
upon our resources can hardly be imagined.
'he exodua reduced the population to
about 12(1,000, but the people began to come
" - back, and 1 should say that there are now
ax bout 373,000 people in San Francisco, al
though' many of them who do busines In
San Francisco . live in Oakland, Berkeley
and adjoining towns.
. "About 00,000 people are still housed in
tents. The housing problem Is really a
serious one. They have rushed stores and
business houses ahead of the dwellings
and in spite of a great deal of doubling up
among different households there is great
difficulty In finding suitable places to live

"The amount of business being done Is
surprisingly great, and strangely, too. In

CHICAGO FIRMS; , WANT JOB
Windy City Contractor Will Try to Get
Northwesters Freight Depot
The three local contractor who will try
for the contract for the erection of the
new Northwestern freight depot In Omaha
will meet strong competition from the Chi
cago builders, five or six of whom-are fig
uring on the work. Encouragement Is given
the local men by the fact that the contract
for the M. E. Smith & Co. wholesale dry
goods building, the largest single contract
ever let In the city, went to an Omaha
firm, the Capitol City Brick company,
which bid In competition with a number of
large Chicago firms. It Is also thought
that in case figures show no great differ
ence tha railroad company will naturally
favor an Omaha concern.
The plans for the new building are In
the hands of the contractors and bids are
to be returned August 10 at the office In
Chicago of Frost ft Granger, the archi
tects. A rough estimate by a local builder
places the amount of money which will be
required In erecting the building at (100,000.
It is the purpose of the railroad company
to let the contract at once and have the
depot completed by winter.
The building site is to the north of Dav
enport street and between Thirteenth and
fourteenth streets. The depot ' will be 728
feet in length, including the office building
fronting on Davenport street, which will
be 80 feet on Davenport street and 10 feet
In depth and will be two stories and base
ment. The depot proper will be 36 feet In
Four tracks will run along the west side
of the building, one of then to be under a
shed which extends over the platform. The
ground between the building and Thirteenth
street will be left unobstructed by tracks
and will be for the use of wagons which
will take freight from the doors on the

KIDNAPS ONE CHIL0 FROM INSTITUTION

aa His Hemarkabla Mother Is
Delinquent s Irre-sponsible.
The Juvenile court authorities, the Asso
ciated Charities and the Humane society
are putzled over what to do In the case of
Violet Gaster, a woman of about SO, who Is
said to be unsound mentally and to have
followed a depraved and miserable life for
a number of years.
Her latest escapade Is the kidnaping of
her 1-year-old son from the county hospl
tsl. where he had. been placed by orders
of Judge Leslie of tha county court. The
woman Induced County Physician Swoboda
to send her to the county hospital under
the plea of sickness. She spent a few days
there and was informed that she would
have to leave, aa she wss not 111. Clad In
the loose wrapper furnished by the Institu
tion, she departed hurriedly, managing to
take the child with her, the latter bare
headed, barefooted and garbed with ex
treme precision and simplicity. Officers
looking for the pair Monday failed to lo
Romance Amid Pauperism.
The woman achieved fame a year or more
ago by eloping from the county hospital
with a man inmate considerably her elder.
She had been sent there as a county charge
on. one of a series of frequent visits and
within the walls of poverty and suffering
developed a romance with the male pauper.
One night the infirm Romeo carried away
his loose-headed and looser moraled Juliet
and left the state. By means of money pro
cured from unknown sources the couple
traveled Into Missouri, where it is not
known that the union was so much as
legalised by the merriage ceremony. Nearly
twelve months later the woman appeared
at the county hospital, when another child
was born and died. The first baby and the
one kidnaped, also, first saw life In the
Soon after leaving the restrictions of life
at the hospital she went to South Omaha
and took up abode with a decrepit and
venerable man, who maintained a shack
and a vestige of self-support. Not long
afterwards an aunt of the mother's made
application In the county court to gain
possession of the child.
Jade Orders Investlaratlon.
Judge Leslie sent Mrs. Towle of the
Juvenile court to investigate the aunt, and
the report blasted any hopes that the
elder woman had in the matter. The boy
was sent to St. James' Orphanage, where
he exhibited such signs of weak-mindedness,
degeneracy and depravity, that In
course of time the orphanage people sent
him back to the court, less he contaminate
the good orphan's. This was only a short
time ago and Judge Leslie committed the
Infant to the county hospital. Since then
the mother has tried repeatedly to break
Into the hospital and obtain him.
The woman once had Insanity charges
preferred against her, but the insanity
commissioners thought her condition did
not warrant commitment. It was the Idea
to keep the child at the county hospital
until he was old enough to be sent to ths
Institute for the feeble minded at Beatrice.
The probation officers declare that the
liberty enjoyed by Violet Is a menace to
society and that she should be Incarcerated
and cared for. The boy is described as
little better than a young1 beast.

about a doaen and a half in a basket.
Pears are very much more tempting look
ing than they were a few days ago and

They have taken on a mellow red and yel

are also cheaper than they were a few
days ago, selling at 20 and 26 cents a
There seems to be a big demand for red

and sell at 30 and 35 cents a peck. Cooking
apples are plentiful at 20 cents a peck.
There is nofchtng new in the assortment
of vegetables and they are selling about
the same. There is a grent deal of room
for choice, however, and it Is (or choice
that one has to pay.
Muskmelon Cups with Peach Custard
Use small muskmelons and remove the tops
so as to form covers, then take out the
seeds and membrane and put the cups on
Ice to harden. When ready to serve put in
layers of sugared sliced peaches until the
cups are half full and then cover with a
custard made of two eggs, a pint of milk,
a heaping teaspoonful of cornstarch and
half a cup of sugar. Fasten the covers on
again and Chill In the ice chest until ready
to serve. Arrange on individual plates and

Spanish Salad Prepare a fining of one
cupful of dice of ripe tomatoes drained free

ing; take the heart of a lettuce, lay back
the leaves as you would those of a cab
bage for stuffing and. fill with salad.
Cold Fish To use up the remains of cold
fish, the flesh of which is apt to taste
rather dry, the following plan may be
tried: Line a baking dish with some thin
pastry, spread a little butter over It; break
up the cold fish into small pieces; have
ready some bread crumbs soaked in milk;
stir Into them a plentiful seasoning of
chopped parsley, onions, etc.; fill r the dish
with alternate layers of fish and stuffing;
beat up an egg, add alttle milk or cream,
season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and
ladle it by spoonfuls vef the contents of
the dish. When It lias nearly soaked In,
cover with a thick crust and bake an hour
and a half until a golden brown.
