THE POLICE.
Annual Eoport of Suporintond-
ent Eolim,
He Speaks Flatteringly of the Men Since
Ho Took Charge.
There Were 87,995 Arrests
During the Year r
And $347,000 Worth of Property Re
ported Stolen.
Increase of tho Force Recommended.
Superintendent Bohn presented his annual re
port to iho Board of Police Commissionoio
yesterday, and it was placed on file. It is
substantially as follows «
Before entering into or giving the details of the
workings of tho force for the year, I heg permission to
state that elnco I assumed tho position of General
Superintendent of Police, tu December Inst, tho mem
bers of tho department have, with very rare excep
tions, exhibited an evident determination to faithfully
perform their respective duties, tho result of which is
that wo can to-day point with pride to tho fuot that
LBSa CHIMB HAS BEEN COMMITTED,
loss arrests effected for violations of city ordinances,
and a much hotter showing of stolon property recov
ered during tho lost throe months than for any other
tfirco months of tbo year; and this notwithstanding
tho fact that many of our citizens, on tho approach of
winter, were apprehensive of a season of crime and
depredations on account of tho unusual number of
persons out of employment.
As will bo scon, there Is a decrease in the number of
arrests, and in tho amount of entno committed; and
not only lu there uu increase tn the amount of
raorKUTV nncovEUED,
but Ibcro baa been recovered during tho lant three
months 19,334 worth of stolon property lu excess of
the amount ho reported, while for the previous nine
months not oyer 05 per cent of stolen property had
been recovered. It la proper to state hero, however,
that the detectives at tho Central Station have per
formed valuable services, and have been very success
ful during tho last threo mouths, having recovered
during tho months of January, February, ond March
stolon property to tho amount of $1f1,120.R1, whereas
during tho threo previous mouths only $5,304 worth
bad been recovered,
Tho iiollce force nt preront consists of one General
Superintendent, three Captains, seventeen Sergeants,
and 020 patrolmen.
Hero follows a statement in detail of tho num
ber of men employed at each precinct station,
together with recommendations concerning tho
improvement and enlargement of tho First,
Second, Third, and Fourth Precinct Stations.
DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT.
The Superintendent thou goes on :
I would moat respectfully recommend the appoint
ment of a Deputy Superintendent of Police, ns there is
in urgent necessary for an officer to visit the various
Uationa frequently lu order to amtorviKO tho working
md discipline of tho force. The General Superintend
ml being required to attend to the duties nt Police
Headquarters, It ißlmposkiblo for him to visit the
nations nud give the department hia personal super
vision.
EtOnCABB OP TUB FOUCK
I would respectfully ask that tho number of Ser
jcmln ho increased to twenty, there being only seven
teen at present, os at some of tho preduct stations wo
require two Sergeants, owing to tho number of men
stationed there fur duty, and that tho police force bo
Increased by the appointment of eighty ; five addition
al patrolmen, ten of those patrolmen having to act as
roundsmen at tho stations. lu consequence of tho
rapid growth of tho suburbs of tho city, we have not
sufficient imtrolmcu to'protect tho citizens residing
there, and owing to tho large area of territory covered
by tho city, and the limited number of patrolmen In
the outer precincts, It Is almost Impossible for a patrol
man to effectually protect tho citizens lu those dis
tricts.
I would also recommend that tho drilling of tho
police force bo resumed at an curly day, as a number
of tho patrolmen now on the force hsvo been appoint
ed since 1U discontinuance about eighteen mouths
ago.
Tho appended tables Twill show tho number of arm
rests, nuuro of charges, amount of fines, valuo of
property reported lost or stolen, and value of property
recovered lor ouch mouth of tho year.
In conclusion, I desire to bear testimony lo the cor
dial co-operation nnd efficiency of nil branches of tho
service since I assumed tho Hupcrlutf mluncy of tho
Jiollce-forco In December last, and especially of tho
Jotocilve Department, for Its able aniistanco and
prompt action In tho recovery of properly reported
stolen and.tbo arrest of criminals; and to you, gentle
men, for'your counsel, aid, and lullncnco in tho
promotion of tho Interests and efficiency of the De
partment, I also desire to return my sincere thanks.
Bespcctfully submitted.

DILL TO DECLARE A PATENT VOID.
■ Tho Attorney-General of Iho Unlloa States ex
rol. Abuor 11. Bryant, yesterday filed a bill to do
olaro void tlio patent on tho well-known Stevens
ogg-carrior. Tho bill, which is brought against
John L. and N. W. Stovous, 11. F. Billings, and
D. McKay, sots out that tho Stovons, in 1807,
obtained a patent for an improved egg
carrier, and introduced it extensively. Billings
owns tho p&tont for tho territory oast of tho
Bocky Mountains, and McKay that for
tho Pacific Coast. Tho bill alleges that
tho ohoico had boon in use two years an over be
fore tho Slovens obtained a patent 5 that at least
thirty parties aro using substantially tho samo
thing, including among them, Schweitzer & Boor,
Vorgho, Buhling & Co., P. W. Qillott, and 0. H.
McCulloch, of No. 04 South Water street, lu
Chicago. Tho patent was, moreover, it was
claimed, procured by fraudulent representations.
It was not, moreover, any now invention at all.
Patents for carrying medicines, bottles, soaps,
etc,, bad been In uoo lor over ton years, all be
ing founded on the principle of compartments
or between tlio separate articles.
Again, tbo article was not patontablo at all. In
viow of all these considerations, it is asked that
tbo patent may bo declared void.
TUB WHISTLE ” IN TUODBLE,
Charles M. Brennan filed a bill yostorday in
tbo Superior Court against bis partner, John B.
MoArtor. Brcnuan states, that on tho 10th of
March last, ho bolug tho proprietor of tho store
131 South Clark street, sold a ouo-half interest to
tho defendant, and made a partnership with
him. Each party was to contribute 651)0, tbo
firm name to bo “Tho Whistle,” and Brennan,
instead of devoting bis personal attention, was
to furnish 635 monthly of liquors from his own
storo. All goods wero to bo purchased from him
also, MoArtor was to tako charge of the busi
ness and mako a weekly statement of tho rooipts
and expenditures. Brennan now complains that
MoArtor bos failed utterly to koop his contract,
that ho has refused to givo any account or pay
over any money. Ho has also neglected to pay
tho rent of tho storo, although acknowledging
that ho had sufficient firm money in bin posses
sion. Bronimu, therefore, asks an account r a
dissolution of tho partnership, and also an in
junction to prevent tho defendant from collect
ing any money or interfering m any other way
with tho affairs of tho linn. The Injunction was
allowed, under a bond for SI,OOO.
THE MEEKER WILL OISE.
Tho jury in tho long contested Mocker case re
turned a sealed verdict Friday evening, about
half-past 7 o’clock, which was opened Saturday
morning, and read as follows:
We (ho jury find Joseph Meeker of a sound and
disposing mind at tho timo of tho making of the will,
and, therefore, do Hud tho said will to bo good and
valid.
Wo the jury find Joseph Meeker not of a sound
and disposing mind at tho time of tho making of tho
codicil, and therefore find against tho codicil.
Tho effect of this is virtually a verdict for tho
defendant. By tho will Mrs. Meeker was given
a life-OKtato in tho deceased's property on Mon
roo street; by tho codicil uho was granted a foe
simple estate. As, in either case, this properly
must necessarily bo sold for his debts, tho widow
obtains os much by this decision us she would
bad it been wholly m her favor. A motion for a
now trial was made by tho complainant.
DECISION UV JUDGE DRUMMOND.
In tho ease of Iloury and Jvnes Ilecciy against
James Kennedy, Judge Drummond delivered a
decroo in favor of tho complainants. The bill
was brought to rostaiu the defendant from in
fringing two patents for hoisting-machines.
Potter Palmer Hied his resignation os South
Park Commissioner, to take effect when his
successor should bo appointed and qualified.
In tho £oaso of Paulina Dowold v. William
Dowald the bill was dismissed on tho ground of
collusion between the parties, hut without prej
udice as to commencing another.

THE BURLINGTON & MISSOURI RIV
ER ROAD.
The annual report of President John W,
Brooks, of the Burlington & Missouri Illvor Rail
road, m Nebraska, for tho year 1873, contains
some very valuable information.
THE HOAD.
Tbo road is completed from Plattsmouth to
Fort Kenvuoy. With tho exception of ouo grade
oast and ouo grajlo west out of tlio valley of tho
Big Blue, near Crete, and ono rising west, be
tween Lincoln and Crete, which aro Utile less
than 82 foot to tho mile, there
are none upon tbo lino abovp 22 fcot to
tbo milo, and thoso aro so short as to exorcise
no controlling inlluouco above tho lower grades
of tbo lino, which aro about 10 feet to tho mile,
and gonoarally falling eastward with tho course
of the heavier traffic. X ? ort Kearney being about
1,101) foot abovo Plattsmouin, which indicates
the fall of tho Platte Bivor, whoso current is
nearly uniform botwcon these points. Tho Hue
is without sharp curves, and is, with its light
grades, very easy to oporato.
V uliko most now railroads in tho Far West. U
Is in all respects first-class, and quite equal to
tho avorago of tlio railroads of New England,
and well entitled to tho reputation it has of be
ing thoroughly built. While considerable money
might, have boon saved in tho original cost by
constructing it less substantially, and still moro
by adopting heavier grades, tho annoyance and
expense of half reconstructing it during tho first
fow years of its operation will be avoided,—a
fate that has proved so disastrous to mnnv now
roads iutUoSVest; while tho just demands of
tbo public, which, in view of tho largo land
grant. had a right to expect a well-built, ihst
class railroad, were fully met.
THE LAND QUANT.
Building a road (as was douo in this enno) en
tirely ahead of tho population, and, of course,
with no business already in existence to support
it, would have boon impracticable, except through
tho induccmonts of a liberal grant of land, along
its lino, to bo nmde valuable by tho road itself.
Tho grant to this Company was something ovor
2,250,000 acres of laud, which had Leon for many
years hanging undeveloped upon tho market, at
$1.25 an aero, of nq practical uso to tho nation,
or Stnto of Nebraska, on which it was simply an
incubus, forming tho hunting-grounds of hostile
Indians, and keeping settlors out of a still wider
contiguous area. Bo annoying woro these In
dians that tho early surveys of tho Hue could bo
but very Imperfectly accomplished; cud tho
Government, after moro accurate surveys oould
he safely made, allowed tho Company to relocate
tho western portion.
As soon as it became certain that tho road
would bo built, tho alternate sections remaining
in tho Government were taken up, even before
its actual construction, and as fast as tho road
progressed in; its construction, began to bo oc
cupied by a desirable class of settlors, all appre
hensions from Indiana having pacscd away.
CONNECTIONS.
To furnish to tho country traversed by Ibis
lino ail needed facilities for reaching such places
as are conducive to its prosperity, permanent
control of tho Omaha & Houthwostom llailroad
has boon obtained. It connects tho road with
Omaha, tho chief commercial town in tho Stnto,
forming a direct connection with tho throe groat
Enutom lines to Chicago, and with tho Northern
linos running into tho lumber regions of Minne
sota and Wisconsin. Tho communication thus
established between tho road and ail tho Eastern
linos, places tho Company • iu'qulto an independ
ent position.
Tho thirty miles of this road which 110 in tho
valley of tho Big Blue, between Crete and Bea
trice, is in n position to form a connection with
tho linos from tho South, which havo been con
structing northward, and aro completed within
about 70 miles of Beatrice.
THE LENGTH OF TUB ROAD
from Plattsmouth, its eastern terminus, to Us
junction with tho Union Pacific llailroad at Fort
Kearney is 100 miles; tho longfti of tho Omaha
nud Southwestern Itailroads is ahouty forty-nine
miles, about eighteen and a half miles of which
form tho Omaha Branch, leaving tho main lino
four miles west of Plattsmouth; and thirty miles
constitute a branch on tho south, extending from
Crete to tho town of Beatrice. Tho wholo length
of the lino owned and worked by tho Company is

RAILROAD LEGISLATION.
RESISTING THE IOWA RAW.
Although no official announcement has boon
made, it is pretty generally understood that tho
throe Chicago railway companies that traverse
lowa will not comply with tho recently enacted
law of that State. It will bo remembered the
Legislature adopted the classification and sobod
ulo'of rates issued by tho Illinois Bailroad Com
missioners, and decreed that such roads as tho
Burlingtou, Book Island, and Northwestern
should charge only 00 per cent of those rates. In
view of the fact that none of tho roads are
troubled with any surplus lowa earnings, they
fool warranted in taking direct issue against the
law. For a time it was rumored that tho pecu
liar position of tho Book Island and Illinois
Central Companies in having tho Dowd amend
ment attached to their charters, would force
them to comply, and their two competitors would
bo obliged to follow their example. This partic
ular amendment admits tho right of the Legis
lature to regulate the tariffs. Tho conflict will
turn upon tho word ’* regulate." Tho railroad
attorneys claim that it merely implies tho right
to adjust, not to make, tho rates.
Tho latter, they urge, would bo tantamount to
confiscation.
Neither arc tho roads Inclined to lower their
passenger charges to Bo a mile. Travel in lowa
is altogether too light to justify tho reduction.
A repetition of tho litigation begun in Illinois
seems inevitable. The companies deem tliolr
position stronger by resisting everywhere, rather
than yielding at any point. In lowa, a conclu
sion may bo sooner teacher on account of tho
penalties attaching to violation of the law. Those
include imprisonment for every offense. Tho
first arrest will enable the companies to sue
for an injunction against tho enforcement of tho
law until its constitutionality is decided.
THE SUITS IN ILLINOIS.
Thero is no hullcatiou that any of tho suits
brought by tho Railroad Commissioners of this
Htftto against sovcrul of the railroad companies
will be tried before the full torm. The suit
against the Chicago & Alton Railroad Company
at Springfield is sot for next month, but is not
expected to bo called. Tho companies are sim
ply uuablo to prepare for trial under six or nine
months. Tho Chicago, Burlington *t Quincy and
tho Northwestern cases are sob for September.
While each company is preparing assiduously
for trial, it is believed tbo latter will bo tho test
case. Tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy havo
twenty-five clerks working up material for tho
defense, and tho Alton Company havo a similar
force engaged upon statistics., Henceforth, tho
companies will have tho necessary details stead
ily kept up, in readiness for the numerous suits
they anticipate for several yours to como.
MISCELLANEOUS.
TUB CENTKAL It.ULUOAI) OF IOWA.
Proßidunt Isaac 31. Cute, of the Central Rail
road of lowa, has just issued bis annual report
for 1873 to tho stockholders of tho Company,
from which It appears that tbo earnings for 1873
wore $505,104.14. Operating expenses, includ
ing $10,289 paid for shoveling snow in January,
February, and March, 1873, woro $510,215, leav
ing a surplus of $139,889. In consequence of
tho urgent demands fur money' in other direc
tions, tho Company is yet largely in debt to tbo
men. They are, however, in sympathy with the
conduct of Us utTnlrs, and are showing groat lor
boaranco. Fifty-five thousand tons of coal wore
sent over tho road in 1872, and 82.000 have boon
moved in 1873, an increase of 27,000 tons, or 60
nor cent. Tho burdensome contract, allowing
25 cents per ton drawback to the Company,
formed for developing a largo coal business on
•tho road, has been changed to 10 cents per ton.
Tho 32,090 acres wild lauds, donated by Worth
County us a consideration for the building tho
loot 22 miles of road, terminating in tho north,
at Northwood, havo not yet boon found. Dili
gent search has been made, and is yot to bo
made, with hope of locating them.
Throats having boeu made to force fine Own
umj to rnnlto proforonooßof paymmila, tlio rood
bod nnd frnncliißO in danger of nolo and panning
from tho Company on execution, unload tho
Hfliuo was paid, tbo advloo of counaol was for
Horace Abbott, John 8. Gilman, and Isaac M.
Cato to obtain judgments for $200,000, to stand
in front of a proforonco being got by any credi
tor, tho aamo has boon done for tho protection
of tho Company and its bondholders, nnd for no
other purpose.
At no limd have this Company’s relations with
any of tho connecting roads boon more friendly
than at present. A good understanding baa also
been established with one of tho trunU linos
crossing It, which before bad rejected all inter
course with tills Company, wlmo more important
has boon tbo change In the relations of this Com
pany wilh tbo Milwaukee A Bt. Paul Hallway, at
the north end. and tho 81. Louis, Kansas City A
Northern Hallway, nt the south. By the open
and steady policy adopted by this Company, tho
interchange of business has become mofo free
and rates more favorable. For tho first time in
this Company’s experience, through passenger
trains, with Pullman car attached, have un
broken connection with St, Louts nnd St. Paul
over this road. This has boon brought about by
tho friendly acts of those two roads.

Perfection of Quality.
At tho Grand Paris Exposition, 1807, the first-prize
medal was awarded tho Messrs. Duryea, manufactur
ers of Duryoas* Satin Gloss Starch, 11 and Duryea’s
“ Improved Corn Starch,” for tho perfection of quality
of their goods. Tho first-prize medal was also award
ed them at London {World’s Fair), 1862; Cologne,
1805 ; Hamburg, 1833; Amsterdam, 1869; Havre,

TUo Spanish Cortes*
There in nothing remarkable about tlioSpanish
Cortes. Plain externally, it has numerous well
fumished committee-rooms, containing modem
pictures and portrait!) of no artistic value, while
Its Chamber of Deputies, arranged like au am
phitheatre, is remarkable for nothing hut its
deeds, “Arc you a well behaved body?” I
asked. The good nnturcil Deputy smiled, and
the amiable senora replied, ‘‘Well behaved?
They not likochlldrou. They exorcise no solf-con
trol. You never in your life heard such a noise
as they make. And thou-how they übo up car
pets I Spit, spit, spit! They are forever spit

has always boon. I see no difference." Hero
was a revolution. Tho noblo art of spitting is
not confined to tho Western Hemisphere. It is
not peculiar to republican institutions. I

A flood Snako Story*
ff From the SprinnUflil (Jims.) Republican,
Among ouch solitudes, rough, ruuky, and un
subdued—slowly sinking crests of dead and dy
ing mountain chains—are still found, from time
to'time, dark witnesses of creation's fateful mys
tery, loathsome reptiles bearing death In their
fangs, malice iu their hearts, and rattles on their
tails!
While the workmen were building tins mill at
Balmou Falls, on the Westfield ftivor, one of
these crawling outcasts of creation, descendants
no doubt of that “peaky sarpont" renowned
iu Springfield’s ancient ballad, crept una
wares within roach of his hereditary foo. As
his groat ancestors wore merciless, so wore his
captors. Ho was beaten with clubs and mauled
with stones till ho lay limp and lifeless, but hor
rid still. Brought thus near the building he was
laid prone on a piece of Umber, an ohjoet of
curiosity and merited disgust. At length, moved
by that caution which dreads a fallen foe, or by
a strange though not uncommon spite, one nf
tho mou chopped off tho head,—the lint, evil
skull, hard, filmy eyes, tbo jaws closed primly
upon tbo cruel fangs within.—chopped It off ami
brushed It away. Later, the engineer coming
out thought to snvo the taper-chain of rattles,
a ghastly memento. But those had just boon
Hovered from the lifeless trunk, which still lay
bruised and bleeding whoro it had boon thrown.
Among those looking on, a boy stood near in
homespun dress, stout boots enveloping his
pants. A gray-hatred denizen of the region,
drawing nigh, bade tbo youngster stamp on tbo
serpent's tall. Nothing loth, tho heavy hoot
camodown whoro tho rattles used to grow—oamo
down, and, straightway, up it corao, while a sick
ly pallor blanched bonoath tho tan nnd whole
some dirt. No wondorl Tbo “spirited, sly
snako,” bad been drinking sunshine, an bo lay
outstretched, and, mangled as lie was, bad gath
ered strength to resent tlio insult, as instinct
prompted him. Quicker than a liberated
spring bis headings trunk struck the offending
boob wllli tbo same malicious violence as when
tho poison-fangs wore sot erect to do its fatal
bidding i Happily, tbo bond was quite severed
from tbo body, and lay iu tbo dirt several feet
awnv.
Us not pleasant to tread on a sprightly rat
tle snake, oven though ouo wear thick boots
and tho reptile has neither head nor tail. So
those uuHoloiitifio investigators pursued their
experiment with a piece of board, but 'twos
quite conclusive. Every time the smaller end of
the body was struck tbo otbor retaliated with a
spiteful blow.
Surely a strango phenomenon, from which
many interesting theories might bo drawn aside
from tbo obvious caution: Don't handle rattle
snakes till tbolr beads are taken off. But/Wbo
shall say what occult law of life’s doop mystery
is shadowed iu a fact tiko this ? As often as that
ghastly carcass colled and struck tho offending
oot, so often, ami at tho solf-samo Instant, tho
S:, ropulsivo head, lying dissovorod in tho
, opened its jaws, tho deadly fangs protrud
ing, and closed them with a snap I Again and
again, this was done till the broken and divided
—or was it tbo indefinitely extended ?—ghost of
the roptllo at last departed.
