months ago, was In latitude 60 degrees 20
minute south and longitude 30 degrees 16
minutes west, moving with the usual cel
erity common to such bodlea.
About sixty days ago, from some cause
wholly unknown to astronomical science,
this fiery wanderer quickened Its pace and
has been traveling at an unprecedented
rate o( speed slnc that time. It Is now
almost directly west of us. at a true alti
tude of 40 degrees. Its course since first
observation has been direct north, follow

From a comparison of my notes taken at
the time of first observation with those
taken Saturday night, and deductions ar

this observatory, I have arrived at tne
startling and seemingly impossible conclu
sion that if this body continues In Its pres

nothing to prevent, it will come In contact
with the continent of North America In
the course of a year, at or near longitude

Omaha Has Comet of Its Own.
Once upon a time Omaha had a comet all
Its very own. Probably not ten men In the
city now recall it, even if they ever were'
aware of the fact, tor fact it certainly Is.
It was acquired exactly thirty years ago
Sunday morning, its coming being heralded
by the London dispatch divulging the con
tents of Prof. Gould's reply to the cabled
inquiry of Sir John Bishop, F. R. A. S.,
It Is true the comet never materialised,
due, doubtless, to another "eccentrlo and
unaccountable deviation" back to Its orbit,
unless, perchance, the "dark disc" that
formed its head was completely consumed
by "spontaneous heat," and, In the lan
guage of the plans, nature "let the tall
go with the hide."
Be that aa it may, the heavenly ap
parition never made connection with the
continent of North America In latitude of
3S degrees north, longitude 42 west which
would have been somewhere In the vicinity
of Nebraska City nor in any other vital
spot of Mother Garth, though the shadow
of the predicted collision gave Omaha the
cold shivers for many, many months.
Omaha was yet in its swaddling clothes
when the "Haynes comet" was announced.
It claimed no more than 16,000 population,
and had probably much less, but It was
already the "Gate City" and the way the
"1S.000, count 'era, 16.000." shook In their
coata throughout the spring and summer
of lS-sO all but tore the gate off its hinges.
The, Bee Published Cable.
The London-Cordova cablegram was
printed In The Bee on Saturday morning,
April 3, and conscientiously stolen and du
plicated In a rival evening paper, so that
on the following day, being Sunday, It was
known and discussed from center to cir
cumference, that Its to Bay, from Dan
Allrn's" to Twentieth snd Military road;
to the hasel patch at the head of St.
Mary's avenue, and to Bohemian hall on
South Thirteenth street. There was per
fect unanimity of opinion. Prof. Gould
had aald the comet would strike down In
the corner near Nebraska City, and It
would strike! It would as certainly tear
up the earth some, and the scene of the
ruction was unpletsantly adjacent to
So Intense waa the alarm and anxiety
created by the unlucky Haynes comet that
the pastors of practically every church -in
the rlty went to some pains to allay the
feara of their congregations, and as their
sermons were pretty fully covered one
of the papers the one that had stolen the
news the tone of the apprehension market
became decidedly easier. Those who con
tributed powerfully to this result, end Drug Co.
their names may be written In letters of
gold, were among others, the following
pastors: Rev. W. B. Copeland of the
Unitarian church, Rev. iW, J. HarSha of
the First Presbyterian, ,Rev. J. B. Max-'
field of the First Methodist, Rev. A. L.
Sherrill of the First Congregational, Rev. B.
H. B. Jameson of the First Baptist, Rev.
W. K. Beans of the. eighteenth Street
Methodist and Rev. J. C, Evans of the
United Presbyterian, then tersely de
scribed as the "U. P." the "U. P." being
In those days the only reliable trade-mark
Rev. Mr. Copeland was In some ressjects
the most remarkable Omaha churchman of
that day. Mr. Copeland was one of the
first to handle the subject, and he did so
In a! masterly manner. He delivered his
famous "comet sermon" exactly one week
after the publication of the Cordova
Patrick O. Hawes, police Judge of the
city of Omaha, sat tilted back in his cane
seated chair, in the dusky and dusty court
room tn the decrepit and disreputable old
city hall that was evolved from the wreck
of the once proud Patee Opera house,
Seventeenth and Farnam streets. It was
Monday morning and Officer Houck had
not yet brought "the gang" across frorr
the city bastlle.
The newspaper man who had stolen Th
Bee's: thunder and, not a little frightened
himself at the dire predictions of Prof.
Gould wss expiating tils crime by handing
out the pulpit consolation to a terrified
public through the medium of the press,
stood in the august presence. His report
of the last "comet sermon," in the morn
ing paperj was In the hands of the Hon.
Patrick O. Hawes.
"You great chump!" he roared. "Ain't yov
ever going to get your eyes open?"
"What do you mean?" with offended
dignity, quoth the reporter. '
"Why, don't you know that's the great
est hoax ever perpetrated on this com
munity?" And then and there tie exploded
the Haynes' comet.
"Dos" Haynes, later to become a theat
rical manager and advance man of note,
was then holding cases on the night side
of The Bee. He occasionally "scribbled" a
few lines for his own amusement, when
copy didn't come up fast enough. On the
night of April 1 he found time hanging
heavily on his hands and evolved the
Gould-Bishop fiction, which was good
enough for the morning edition and re'
celved apparent confirmation by appearing
also In the evening rival of The Bee. It
never went further than Into the pages of
a few state papers, and a waiting and
weary world patiently wondered what all
that agony Omaha was suffering was about
and how It would end.

PAIR GO OFF CITY PAY ROLL
Health Commissioner Connell Fails to
List Veterinarian Young-.
CLAIMS HE HAS NOT REPORTED
Salary of Sam Rothwell, Garbage In
spector, Is Cat Off Pay Roll on '
Ground He Waa Allowed
A slight arcrlmonlous discussion oc
cured Friday morning at the meeting of
the city . council to pass the pay rolls.
Chairman Funkhouser of the finance
committee discovered that Health Com
missioner Connell had left oft his pay
roll the name of Dr. G. M Toung, dairy
Inspector and veterinarian, and that he
had placed thereon the name of Samuel
Rothwell for twenty-one days.
Dr. Connell was called in to explain.
He said Dr. Toung had not been putting
In an appearance at the health office
for the past month and had made no re
port as to whether he was working or
not; therefore he had not placed his name
on the pay-roll.
Considerable discussion ensued concern
ing the disagreement between the health
commissioner and his veterinarian, but It
was finally decided to ask Dr. Toung to
appear before the committee of the whole
next Monday afternoon.
Concerning the Rothwell case, Council
man Brucker took the position that as
Rothwell had only been confirmed a week
his pay should be for t.nly eight days.
Dr. Connell said that there waa need
for the appointment of a man to watch
the work of the garbage contractors and
to serve notices on householders to have
garbage, ashes and refuse removed, and
he had put Rothwell on when the need
"Tou have no right to do a thing like
that without notifying this council," said
"I have the right," said Dr. Connell,
"when an emergency exists, and the ap
pointment was made to take care of an
Important part of our work."
Ptndlng further Investigation, Rothwell's
name was stricken from the pay-roll. This
ca.ee will also be settled next Mondny
