and Illinois Central railroads to Install and

In tho rase of the Illinois Central against

In tho suit brought by the city against
tho Great Western and Illinois Central to
compel these railroads lo maintain gates
at certain crossings Judge Thorntll sus
tained tlo motion of tho defendant rail
roads to strike tho amended petition of the
city. After commencing the suit the city
council passed a new ordinance governing
tho maintenance of gates by the railroads
at street crossings and the original petition
whs amended to conform with the new
ordinance. The railroads contended that
the amended petition set up a new cause
of action not in existence at tho time of
the commencement of the suit and Judge
Thornell In his ruling sustains their conten
tion. Robert Manhart brought suit for divorce
from Iicna Manhart, to whom he was mar
ried February lflu", while on a visit to
his natlvo home In Switzerland. He ac
cuses the defendant of treating him In a
cruel and Inhuman manner and refusing
to live with him as his wire. In his peti
tion tho plaintiff states that shortly after
their marriage he and his wife came to
the t'nlted States and visited with relatives
at Marengo, la. From Marengo, Manhart
says, he came to Mlnden, Pottawattamie
county, and rented a' farm, but his wife
refused to Join him. Instead, . he alleges,
his wife Insisted on traveling about with
his niece at his ixpenso and that at present
he Is unaware of her whereabouts.

. Sheriff Falls Get Man.
Deputy Sheriff Thomas McCaffery. who
went to Alexandria. Va., to get Duclen
Marino,' a gypsy who was charged with
kidnaping Marie Mitchell, tho 16-ycar-old
daughter of soother gypsy, arrived home
yesterday without the man wanted. The,
man arrested at Alexandria proved not to
be Marino, but another gypsy, named John
Duclen. The girl, who was found In the
camp at. Alexandria, was brought back by
her uncle, Charles Mitchell, who, went there
to Identify the man under arrest.
When the girl, Marie Mitchell, lert the
camp of her father several months ago
her father missed 11,500, but whether the
uncle recovered the money with the girl is
not known.
The trip of Deputy Sheriff McCaffery to
Alexandria It turned out was brought about
by the mistake of a telegraph operator. A
week or so ego a telegram, the contents of
which is unknown to the officers was re
ceived at the gypsies' oarcp In the wesiarn
part of this city. It was signed Duclen
Marino and this led Mitchell to believe that
the supposed kidnaper of his daughter was
In Alexandria. Deputy McCaffery, how
ever, on reaching Alexandria learned that
the telegram had been signed Duclen and
Marli.o. the senders of the telegram being
John Ducitn and George Marino. When
the telegram was copied- here It was signed,
so It is said, Duoien Marino, the "and"
having been left out. John Duclen was re
leased on habeas corpus proceedings.
When Deputy McCaffery flfst reached
the gypsy camp at Alexandria, he was
told that the girl. Marie Mitchell, had been
married to Stephen Mnrlno, a young man
belonging to the tribe. As she was too
young to secure a marriage HeeiiKe, the
marriage had been carried out under tho
customs of the gypsies, so the-gypsles told
McCaffery, and they even showed the par
aphernalia she was married In and gave
him an elaborate description of tho cere
mony. Before the Judge, however, the girl
denied being married, and was apparently
willing to accompany her uncle back to
her people.
Tho entire cost of McCaffery'a trip and
legal proceedings connected wlth .lt were
paid by George Mitchell, the father of
Mario Mitchell, who it 18 supposed was
anxious and expected to recover his $1,500.

"Electricity and not drugs Is what's
troubling me," declared James Eggleston
of South Omuha, when he, with his wife,
was taken before the insanity board on a
dipsomaniac charge Frlduy. "The drugs
don't have much effect on me but there
Is a kind of unnatural electric Influence
that seems t have a bad Influence on me.
Tiie people seem to have the rooms fixed
up with electricity wherever we go. We
were married five years ago. We didn't
have a minister or a Justice of the peace;
we were married by electricity."
Mrs. Eggleston said the began using
morphine sixteen years ago on a physi
cian's prescription and had been using It
ever since. Her' husband said he first
used cocaine out of curiosity several
years ago. He Is now a physical wreck.
Chief Brlgga of Houth Omaha was the
principal witness against them. He said
before Eggleston began using the drug he
was a strong, healthy workman. Now he
Is unable lo work and Is an object of
charity. The board sent Mr. Efcgleaton to
the county hospital for treatment and Mrs.
Eggleston will live with relatives.

Seasonable Weather Tends to Improve
Commercial Situation.
Outlook In Iron and Steel Bus
lnes Is Brighter, but Textile
Markets Continue In
stilled. NEW YORK. Feb. 1. R. G. Dun Co.'a
Weekly Review of Trade says:
Seasonable weather and an Increase lu
the percentage of active machinery com
bined to Improve the trade situation, al
though there la still a largo number of
unemployed and dealers proceeded cau
tiously In preparing- for future business.
Prices of commodities have declined on
the whole, yet products of the leading In
dustries are fairly well maintained. Mer
cantile collections aro Irregular despite the
ease In the money market.
More Iron and steel plants have resumed
and the outlook Is brighter, even railway
equipment attracting more attention. The
situation Is better because of tho extent to
which consumers seek prompt delivery.
Indicating that the recent Season of con
servatism lias nearly exhausted stocks and
suggesting that whon confidence Is fully
restored a vurl tonnage ot deferred busi
ness will be placed.
Textile markets are still somewhat un
settled, cotton goods having erratic varia
tions in tho raw material In addition to
other disturbing Influences. In some direc
tions there Is more activity, but In other
cases there aro frequent Inquiries without
actual transactions. Consummation of
iuiK-li business seems to be postponed by
"iie question of price. Manufacturers have
more confidence in value; grid arc sus
tained by tho pressure for quick shipment.
Jobbers' sulesmen on the road have "
'ompllshed little, whereas spring business
should be about concluded at this time.
Many bids are be'.ow cost, which prevents
sales and Increases the disposition to stop
machinery. lst week's 'moderate export
business was not supplemented by further
orders and some accumulation ot heavy
goods Is depressing. Aside from n few
oulk orders for men's wear the woolen
goods market Is still conservative and
there Is no disposition to manufacture be
yond the business In sight.
Most buyers have left the Boston stioe
market without placing customary con
tracts, manufacturers who have secured
even a fair amount of business being the
exceptions. Some producers of heavy goods
will close shopsv having failed to accept
tho lower prices offered. ' Jobbers have
secured concessions on some lower grades
of footwear, but calf shoes and other ex
pensive goods are maintained by the
strength or that class or leather. Leather
is dull and weak, except for heavy stock,
which Is scarce. Texas oak solo has de
clined 2c and harness leather lo. Glazed
kid Is purchased liberally in Philadelphia
for western account. Strength Is most
noticeable In pucker branded descriptions
suitable for sole louther. Some export
demand Is also helpful.
Developments Are Irregular, but Tend
Toward Improvement.
NEW YORK, Feb. 1. Brsdstreet s says:
Trade and financial developments have
been of a rather Irregular character, but,
on the whole, in the direction of future
Improvement at the larger centers. Con
servatism in ordering is noted as a country-wide
condition, but recent price reduc
tions have unquestionably stimulated in
terest. The suspensions of four hanks at
the metropolis was after all only nega
tively unfavorable, these being the after
math of last autumn's financial storm.
I'nderlylng financial conditions are cer
tulnly no less favorable, money shows in
creasing ease, not only in this country,
but all over the world, and improvement
In collections, which are still alow as a
whole, is in many cases the result 01
easing money, making It possible to remit
on past and due accounts. The week's
failures total is the smallest for a month
Dry goods distribution apparently Is
tending to Increase because of recent cuts
In prices. Lower prices for builders' ma
terials are reported to have stimulated
some Inquiry and there is talk of possible
, cutting of lumber prices, which Is not,
however, likely to prove permanent wltn
any particular expansion In activity in the
spring. The. cancellation of orders Is still
a disturbing question in some lines, but
there seems this week to be rather more
reports of reinstatement of orders pre
viously rejected.
The textile Industries are quieter, but
estimates of restriction of output are not
easily obtainable. The recent cuts of
pliers In cotton goods place the prices of
most grades at least a) per cent below
a year ago. Hhoe shipments are about 30
per cent below January, l'j(i7. Recent our
tailment of leather production has made
for a fair amount of stability in leather,
especially heavy sole grades, but tanners
are buying hides conservatively. There
aro widespread reports of large numbers
of unemployed In ull sections of the coun
try und soino southern reports point to u
return, by idle city labor, to the farms.
Pig Iron continues quiet despUe com
paratively low puces. Stocks are said to
bo light and lu the Pittsburg district ship
ments exceAl production. Finishing mills
are a little more active, but on the whole
recovery is slow.

Business nt Nebraska, Tuwas.
"A recent magazine article exploited the
big shipments of commodities from certain
Iowa towns," said Labor Commissioner.
Ryder today. "It attracted my attention,
because tho figures seemed very large. But
since beginning to get lu the report of
surplus shipments from Nebraska towns
for 1907 I feel that we can furnish material
for several mighty Interesting artloles.
Take tha town of Gothenburg, In Dawson
county. It Is a small place, but the buyers
there do some business, as the following
figures will testify: There- were 420 cars
of cattle shipped from Gothenburg in 1907,
l-fl cars of hogs, 3 cars of horses and t cars
ot sheep (double deckers). They also sent
out 2 cars of hides and pelts, 140 cars of
wheat, 220 cars of cbrn. 85 cars of call,
17 ears of barley, 2 cars of rye, 3u0 can
of hsy, J cars of alfalfa, 5 cars of flour
and 7 cars of potatoes.
"St. Edward Is a town of a few hundred
people In Boone county, but It reports ship
ments of 12 cars of cattle, l7 cars of
sheep and 6 cars of horses. Of grain there
were 75 csrs of wheat. 2( cars of corn and
100 cars of oats. St. Edward shipments
also Included 14 cars of flour, 2 of mill feed
and 1 of potatoes, besides a large quantity
of pelts, alfalfa seed, tullow and lard.
"There ro several hundred such reports
from small towns where the business done
In a year with the farmers I simply
enormous, and It occur to me that If all
the ready money available In Nebraska
were placed In the banks It would astonish
even the most enthusiast to among our
boosters. I note by report of auctioneers
conducting public sale that the buyer are
paying cash tor their purchases Instead of
giving notes'. These men agree that the
farmers are holding money and tiav it
handy any moment they desire to use It.
The amount so held must be very large In
the aggregate.
"This bureau feels very much encouraged
by the report coming In on the dairy
business and the poultry and. egg business.
Tho promptness In answering our Inquiries
Is no less pleasing than the fact that all
our estimates of tha extent ot these tw
Industries are going- to b knocksd galley
