OMAHA'S lVTKHK.XT 1 THB W'All
Ought to Mean Heller Time lor the
Omaha's interest In the alleged "war" of
the manager Is In a present sense rather
remote. When Manager Hurgess of the
Draueleis was asked about the situation,
he said the only effect it might have would
be to end to this city more of the strortg
attractions and for a longer time. Klaw ft
Krlanger will be relieved from the neces
sity of booking attractions for the smaller
towns, and will thus be able to take better
cure of the larger cities. For example, when
Kliiie Janls was engaged at the Brandeis,
playing to capacity business at each per
formance, she was rut out of one night In
Omaha that Lincoln might have the attrac
tion. Maude Adams was bookevl out of
New York for short stays In Omaha, Kan
sas City, Denver and other western cities.
In order that she might get Into a number
of the smaller towns whose theaters have
now gone Into the Shubert combination.
Otis Skinner Is another of the stars who
w ill play but one night In Omaha because he
has been putting In time at the theaters
now tii ken over by the Cort comblnntlon
with the Shuberts. In the future these
stars will be permitted to stay longer at
the first class theaters In the larger cltle.
The Shuberts are generally understood to
have a lease on the Boyd theater, to tHke
hold when the Hurgess & Woodward lease
expires in June, lftll. This will bring Omaha
directly Into the conflict. When the pres
ent season opened the Shuberts arranged
to book their attractions at the Hurwood,
since named the (iayety. Several fine com
panies were sent on, during the early part
of tho season, but It soon became apparent
that the managers did not have enough at
tractions to keep the house open, and the
contract between the Shuberts and Messrs.
Johnson & Bilz was canceled. This shuts
the Shuberts out of Omaha until they can
secure the Boyd theater.

John S. Collins Tells of These Two in
His Book of the Plains.

Father of I. . Collin Responsible

John 8. Cedllns. who died In Omaha Fri
day, did e-onslderable literary work during
his lifetime. In his book "Across the
Plains In '61," he presents two fascinating
sketches of two distinguished characters
who Illumine the pages of American his
tory. One of these la General Geoigo Crook,
tho Indian fighter, and the other Is Gen
eral I'lysses 8. G'ant. In fact, had Is not
been for the elder Collins, the father of
the author, It Is a grave question whether
Grant would ever have been known to the
world at large-, despite the destiny which
shapes tho cml of all mankind. It Is a
fact that the warm friendship which ex
isted between the Collins an! the Grant
families was responsible for bringing Into
the light of public notice the retiring and
modest Grant, who was known to few
people n Galena, while In the wild
scramble for fat commissions In the serv
ice by the peilltlclans at the outbreak of
the war, Grant remained in the back
ground overlooked and forgotten by even
the few friends who knew him, excepting
In referring to General Crook In his book,
Mr. Collins recalls the petrsonal friendship
which existed between him and Crttok and
he recounts the names of three scouts who
played a prominent part In the campaign
directed by General Crook against the In
dians. One of the scouts Is Buffalo Bill.
The other two although not so widely
known were men' whose daring and knowl
edge of the plains and the Indians made
their services eeiually valuable. These
men were Baptlste Oarnler, better known
at "Little Bat and Frank Grouard. Lit
tle Bat, who took a prominent part In the
battle of Wounded Knee, was killed by a
saloon keeper at Crawford. Grouard was
until recently recently, a scout at Pine
Hidge. Little Bat had a record of hav
ing kllleei eighty-three bears. His ability
in following a trail Is described by the
author as simply marvelous. He would
trail an animal over the hardest country
with sometimes only a turned pebble to
Two Fathers Partners. .
In 1841. F.ll A. Collins, father of the
author, and Jesse? R. Grant, father of Gen
eral Grant, opened at Galena, 111., the first
leather and saddlery store west of Buffalo.
Jes?e R. Grant operated u small tannery
at Bethel, O., and tanned the hides boiignt
at Galena. They were shipped from one
point to the other by stern wheel steam
ers. Chicago was then a settlement com
prised of old Fort Dearborn, a fur trading
point, and a few buildings. Galena, by
comparison, was a metropolis, and the sup
plies from St. Louis were shipped there.
The only rival of the bustling place was
Dubueiue. Hides and pig lead were the art
icles of trade In the river commerce be
tween Galena and St. Louis. Each "pig"
was branded at the end with a letter Indi
cating the ownership, and It was, with the
hide, one of tho principal commodities
dealt in by Collins & Co. Grant withdrew
from the firm In 1853 and opened an opposi
tion tore, placing his brother, Simpson S.
Grant, in charge. In ldCO L'. S. Grant went
to Work In the store.
Travel between Galena and Buffalo In
those day waa .by stage and It was a
courageous man who would attempt the
tedious trip for the purpose of replenishing
stock. When the purchaser started out he.
ueually carried a carpet bag full of coin
for other mediums and looked after their
trading for them. The trip from Buffalo
to New York was by the cars.
So Important an event as the arrival-of
the stage twice a week caused the stores
to suspend business for the time being.
Stage robbers were unknown in those days
and the valuable baggage of the tourist
was thrown carelessly In one of the for
ward boots of the stage. Postage was 23
cents for each letter and an eastern news
paper several weeks old sold for tho same
price. Jt was no uncommon thing in those
duys to see shot bags of silver coin lean
ing against the store outside. Robberies
and holdups were unknown. The water
Ey8tcm u Galena was "Swaiuey," a negro
siave. owuca tn Missouri, who drove a two
w heeled dray carrjlng three water barrels
from which he supplied the stores with a
bucket of river water for 15 cents per week
and earned from fl to V2 p-.r day.

The event of importance was when th
loggers were paid off at the end of a trip
up me river with logs for the sawmill.

$300 to flint. In u lttmy. Tle mayor, tlie
author says, did not turn the keys of tlie
town over to the intn. But this made no
difference. They took 11 Just the same.
The first th'ng was to "tog out" in u new
felt hat, flannel shirt, trousers, belt -and
red-topped boots. After a square meal, the
town began to move. There was no war
tax on whisky and 50 cents a gallon was
the price. As soon us tne men got filled
up and the fighting began tho inercliunts
began to put up their shutters lo save the
window glass. Stones flew a:i thick as hail

up and put in the calaboose, which was
often filled to overflowing.
Owners of the packet Iir,e3 which plied
the river, the author says, lived all the
wjy between St. Louis and St. Paul. A
steamboat captain was a king and the pilot!
was prmco. the pilots pay was from $JO)
to H00 per month and when one of these
richly bedecked men with ruffled shirt
walked down the gangplank and .stepped
on shore, the earth trembled. When rival
steamboat lines, in the scramble for pas
sengers, began to cut rates it was cheaper
to trakcl than to stay at home. Such are

One of General Giant's staff officers dui
ing tiie civil war, l-;il S. Paiker. was a
full-blooehd Seneca Indian and then chief
of the "Six Nations." He was by profe-s-ttem
an engineer. As superintendent of
consti uction for the government he built
the j-oatoffice for Galena In ISoT-iS. He
was Immensely popular i.nd was iniited
to all the public as well as tho social func
tion of the town. The auirur say he
kpeni many an Interesting -p,y in (no so
ciety of the engineer who ., a fino shot
and loved lo hunt. William S. Rowley was
also on Grunt's staff and John A. Ran lira,
a chief of staff, became his scr-nary of
war and later a leading attorney of Ga
lena. Giant firn visit to Galena was made in
when he was lou.ln- the upper Mis-
slfslppl. The steamer ran aground and the!
wnl took advantage of the opportunity
to walk three miles to the home of the
author's father, K. A. Collins. The gen
eial's first war boise was sent to General
J. F.. Smith, a friend of General Grant, and
its honrs now rest somewhere on the "t-ovon
hills," which make up the city of Galena.
Giant did not live In Galena very long,
it was a new life for him ami as he was
quiet and unobtrusive he did not make
acquaintances fast, lie was so little known
that the merchants refused to run a family
supply oeenunt with him. It Is a well
known fact that Thomas Ollton,' a grocer
of tho place, declined to send a barrel of
flour lo his home unless the order was
aicompnled with cash. E. A. Collins guar
anteed the bill and the flour was sent.
After this Incident, says tho author, no
guarantee was necessary.
Grant drove a span of black ponies and
frequently spent Sunday at the home of
K. A. Collins with his family. He visited
the Coll Inn store nearly every day and was
almost always smoking. When the war of
the rebellion breika out politicians were
especially anxious to get a commission from
captaincy up and go to the fremt. K. B.
Washburn, a republican congressman from
the northern part of the state, was par
tlcul iily active. In this hurry and scramble
the name eif Grant was never mentioned.
Tho author, on leaving the store one noein
with his father, K. A. Collins, met Wash
burn. There was a wide difference In
politics between the two men, but It did not
prevent the eider Collins from addressing
Washburn,'1 nor from calling his attention
to Grant. He said:
"Washburn, you and your political friends
In all your activity In calling meeting.",
raising troops and appointing officers, evi
dently are not aware of a man In your
midst that has been educated by the gov
ernment and served under S5hc.Ii Taylor In
the Mexican war and that he knows some
thing about practical warfare."
"Who Is this man?" was the question
sked by Washburn.
"IMysses S. Grant, whom you all pasr
on the street every day and do not know,"
was the reply of Collins.
(Irani Is Illseo crei'.
Washburn promised to look him up anil
at the next meeting for the enlisting of
treiors, Grant was railed out of tie uiellen-'e-
and Invited to the platform. At the close
of the meeting Grant was appolnteel to the
position of drill master of newly-recruited
men. This was the beginning of Grant's
career in the war of the rebellion and it
was astonishing, says the author, to note
the. alacrity with which hundreds of people
suddenly came to know the man whoso
Illustrious career is Interwoven with Amer
During the war Grant tendered Collins
numerous positions, although he was politi
cally opposed to the views entertained by
Grant, but he woulel accept none of them.
When Grant was elected president he wrotei

had promised to make Washburn secretary

next one with it.
The train, accoiellug to Conductor Flimi.
was moving at six ml.es nn hour at tlu
tlme line! was pulh el up before It had
traveled forty feet after the Impact.
Three Pimsenners In ('nr.
There were three- pusst r.gers on the strcrt
car, I wo f the m being e-mpbiyes of the
Happy Hollow flub. The ear was traveling
: ii.sui.l until tho hill above Forty-sixth

(he speed is reduced, but last night Ihe
car came down tho hill lit n high ralo of
speed. The alarm of the pusse -tigers in
creased when they saw the lights of the

from Dr. F. M. Whitman, who accompanied
him to the Wise Memorial hospital. Dr.

the abdomen and other parts of the body,
but that he would not be able to say
definitely until morning whether the In

ductor was taken to the station where he
was atteneleil to by Pedle-e Surgeons T. T.
Harris, Lovpland and Standeven and after
wards taken home. The injuries to the
passengers were not such as to require
Kev. Mr.. Clark Talks.
Rev. Mr. Clark said he was sitting In
the middle of the car when it struck the
train. "They never slowed down," he said,
"but seemed to be in a hurry. The con
ductor usually gets out to see If the way Is
clear, but he neither did this nor did the
car slow down. The next thing we ex
perienced was the collision. 1 was pitched
off my seat when the car struck. My
tight arm is bruised."
Conductor Lucas said the only thing he
remembered was walkiug to the door of the
car and then finding himself lying In the

One of tho passengers, It Is stated, said
that shortly before the accident he had
