Actress Odette Tyler is confined to her room under a phy sician's care, suffering from nervous pros- j tratlon. Her ailment is not serious and she to expected to be able to sail for Europe Saturday. It was her and not young Howard Gould, who broke off the engage ment between them. .Miss Tyler's friends ' claim that Howard Gould wanted to con tinue the ante-nuptial contract, but that the fair fiance refused to consider his pro posal, returned the $0,000 diamond and pearl engagement ring he bad given her, and declined tn noniva i.im o - - m.u. nucu iid called on her Monday. There is no doubt .1..., Y. . . ,ui ,11c engagement nas Deen broken off and that Miss Tyler will never become a member of the Gould family. She is a plucky southern girl and is determined upon both points. The way iu which Miss Tyler is said to have discovered that she would not be welcomed iu the Gould family by the fe male members of it is rather seusationaU She has never met any member of her unuEe'a family, but after the publication of her engagement to Howard the latter refused to present her. Mrs. George Gould nnd Miss Helen, however, enter tained different views on the matter, and they are represented as being so dittideut about calling upon Miss Tyler or iuviting her to visit them that Howard did not press the matter. Miss Tyler naturally expected to meet the memlien of the family, but when she was made acquaint ed with the true state of affairs she in dignantly declined to continue the engage ment. It was broken off aud she and Howard, once lovers, are strangers now. DROr WAS TOO SHORT. Execution at St. Louis or Blurderrr Charles Wlsiloiu. St. Louis, April 14 Charles Wisdom, colored, and aged 23 years, was hanged in the jail yard in the presence of about thirty people. The hanging was quickly performed, but the drop was too short and Wisdom slowly strangled to death. On the night of April 24, lsse, Edward A. Drexler, a tobacconist on Pine street, near Ninth, was murdered iu his bed at the rear of his store, and the store was robbed. Drexler's head was crushed in with an iron bar, and although he was alive when found the next morning could give no description of his murderers. Charles Wisdom was employed by him as a bootblack and was suspected of the mur der. A few days later Wisdom and his companion, John Willard, were arrested. After a few hcurs iu the "sweat-box" at the police headquarters both .made con fessions accusing the other of the crime. At the trial Willard turned state's evi dence aud was acquitted.

Judge Dundy Manipulates a Pen Dipped in Gall, j UHIOIT PACIFIC WAGES RESTORED, And the "Senior Circuit Judge" Glrea Some Pretty Salty Crlticlsims to Think Over His Good Taste and Good Fafcta Both Questioned The Wages or All tha Men Who Were Seduced Put Back to the Old Scale. Omaha, April 14.-Tudge Dundy has ordered the wages of Union Pacific em ployes restorW to the old rate. This ap plies to all the employes of the Union Pa cific whose salaries were cut last Septem ber. , The order directs the receivers to restore the old wage schedule, so far as it relates to the men represented by the pe titioners auu others similarly situated; and in cases where the men receive less than $60 per month; the increased pay shall commence on the first day of March last and in all cases where the men re ceive $60 per month or over the increased pay shall commence on the 1st of the pres ent month. The opinion rendered in connection with the order is a very extensive one, cov ering the entire history of the wage troubles on the Union Pacific road and the hearing before Judgo Caldwell. Judge Dundy declares that Judge Caldwell in his famous order misstated facts and took malicious pleasure in passing strictures on him. ' Six Thousand Men Affected. The decision affects nearly six thousand men in the employ of the company. During the course of his opinion. Judge Dundy said: . ; A week or so ago the trainmen in the employ of the Union Pacific Railway com pany had a hearing before Judge Cald well, where the wage question was under consideration. That case in all essential particulars was the same as this one. A written opinion was tiled in the case. Some facta are stated iu the opiuion, one or two important facts are misstated, and some jmportaut facts are omitted en tirely. I proiose to give a history of the case and the reasons that lead to the makiug of the order that has been so ex tensively criticised and denounced. This 1 do here and now because it is the only opportunity I have had for stating the rea sons on which action was based. Much of the opinion fs devoted to the occupation' and business qualifications of the receivers who happened to be appointed without cousultation with the senior circuit judge. Much of it is devoted to the alleged char acter of the injunction allowed, aud which was nuder consideration by the court, and much of it is devoted to that part of the order which authorized the receivers to put The wage schedule in force on the 1st day of March, 1SS4. Questioned His Good Taste. "The author of -the opinion seems to have taken great, if not malicious, pleas ure in passing his strictures on hat had been done iu connection with the matters then under consideration. Xo one proba bly questions the right to do so, but many have questioned the good taste aud de cency of the manner in which the hearing was bad and the opinion prepared. The reasons for revoking my order are not made known to us. It cannot well be con tended that the portion of the order in question was contrary to law or justice or reason, and that it, was revoked for such reasons. The only reason thought to exist for its revocation is the source from which it emanated. Uereafter if any of these poor men have a grievance and they want it heard in court it may be somewhat ex pensive for them to travel 1,000 miles from here to hunt up the 'source of ower' the fountain head of justice,' before whom an application might be made for leave to file a petitiou asking to have the wrong re- aress.u winch was . fully accorded to all such by the order in question until it was revoked."
