the proposed special meeting of tho order
in reference to the recent acts of Great
Commander Boynton in declining to ap
prove tho bonds of Great Record Keeper
.Houghton of Orund Kaplds. Of the
twenty -eight lodges in this city twenty
six were represented and a dozen other
towns and cities of Michigtui wore rcpre-
seiiti-d by ilelegations.
C oiniiiaiiiii r iMiynton's career as the
oflieial huiid of the order was discnssi-d
and as reportivl the sentiment was largely
in favor of culling the pmoed sctei;il
meeting to codify and revise the law gov

action of the great comnmmlcr impossible
of recurrence. It is lielicvcd that resolu

lic that the safety deposit vaults section of
the O.-naha National bank has been rob

no clue to the manner in which the work
Was done is obtainable, large sums of
money havo been taken from boxes in the
vaults, and the exact amount of tho losses
c in not be known until all have boon ex
amined. The discovery wns made more
than two weeks ago, and every precaution
has been taken by tho bank officials to
keep the matter a close socret. Chief of
Police f5e.iv?y and one of his detectives
hnvo been working industriously upon
tho cose, and J. H. Millard, president of
the Omaha National bank, has given tho
larger share of his timo since the discov
ery to an effort t-o unravel the mystery sur
rounding the cose.
Twelve Hnmlrrd In Gold Vanishes.
The principal loser is William Glodish.
Mr. Gladish lias lxvn the lessee of a box
in the vaults of the Omaha National for a
number of years. Last March be placed
in his box the sum of $J,TJ0 in gold. On
Oct. 5 ho discovered that nbont $1,200 of
the amount was missing. Ho at onoe no
tified Mr. Millard nnd tho investigation
commenced. So fur, however, all efforts
to discover the manner in which the
money was lost have failed, and the bank
authorities as well as the police, are ns
much in the dark as ever. The hank offi
cials place every reliance ujxin tho parties
who hnve any connection with the man
agement of t he vnults nud are thoroughly
in the dark as to how the losses have oc
curred. Thought the Combination Perfect.
Another person reports that three 100
bills have been taken from a box. Tho
vaults oro under the management of a
lady who is every way fitted for tho re
sponsibility of the position she occupies.
No shadow of suspicion exists that t he losses
have occurred through her knowledge or
connivance. The safety vaults are mod
eled after the best system in the country
and the private boxes are snrrounded
with every safeguard the ingenuity of sci
ence can devise, besides which the lessee
has a password and no two individuals
can have the same password.
llank Good for the Money.
It is suggested that a person not entitled
to open any given box may secure posses
sion of the keys surreptitiously. But the
possession of the key alone will not enable
a stranger to open a box. He must also
give the private password. The bank offi
cials or detectives offer no explanation
more than the declaration that it is not
due to tho carelessness of hank employes.
All deposits are guaranteed by tho bank.

goods men of New York city have sent
Chief of Police Quarles, of this city, one of
their letters asking him to handlo their
goods at the high profit of $.'10,000 for 300.
The letter was accompanied by the usual
"confidential circular" card of instructions
and alleged newspaper clippings. The
green goods men undonlrtcdly did not
know that the chief now held the oflieial
position at the head of the police depart
ment. They stmt the letter to the firm of
Swingley & Quarles, under which the
chief and Justice of the Peace Swingley
formerly conducted a livery business.
Chief Quarles, however, intimates that
tho groen goods men are taking this bold
way of suggesting protection from the
Kansas City, Kas., police board. The
mail brought in a large batch of letters of
the same character and a number of local
business men received them.

DEVASTATION BY PRAIRIE FIRES.
Some Farther Details of the Loesraof Prnp
crty In brmka.
Gonnox, Neb., Oct. 27. The facts about
tho prairie fires' are reaching here and
they tell a woeful tale. The fires broke
out List Monday in the South Sand hills,
aUiut fifty miles south of this place, and
have burned already over a strip of conn
try 100 miles In length by forty miles
wide. The lire is burning in aneasterly
direction. The flames burned all tho
range slick and clean on tho Spade ranch,
belonging to Richards & Cairne, and
atiout 3,(KH) tons of bay, leaving almut
1,000 tons. This ranch has 7,tXK) bead of
cattle and 175 head of horses and it will
necessitate the moving of the whole outfit
up to the Wbite river in South Dakota.
The next ranch t-o burn was Stanbirds
Bros, who lost all their hay, about 2,500
tons, and all of thier range; the ranch has
1,200 head of cattle. The next was Len
Osborne's, burning all bis range and all
his hay, about 4o0 tons, and his barn and
outbuildings; this ranch was feeding
about I0 head of cattle. Osborne will
have to move his cattle at once, as he has
no hay or range and no protection at all.
Tho next was Miner"s ranch, burning all
his hay, about 3J0 tons; feeding about 200
head of cattle.
The fire was swept on by a heavy west
ers wind, notwithstanding that thirty
men were working like beavers to put it
out. The next ranch to go was Wood
ruff's, burning all his hay, about 400 tons,
and all his range; tho ranch supported
about 300 head of cattle. Woodruff also
lost his brrns. sheds and corrals. Bough
was next in line, and he lost all his hy,
600 tons, and all his range; had almut Vl
head of cattle. The next was Mason's,
burning him out of ubont 1.000 tons of
hay. He was also the postmaster and had
a store, carrying a stock of thousands of
dollars with a very light or no insurance.
He had 7l head of cattle.
The next was Davis. He lost all of his
hay 1.200 tons but none of his build
ings; he has alxmt riuo head of cattle. This
Is as far as the fire had got at noon. There
are quite-a numlier of small ranches
burned down o the Burlington and Mis
souri. Samuel- Chestnut. Morev and
Hewitt, J. H. Overton and Dan Hill are
ine oniy men that were nut burned. The
loss from this flee ot present will run un
into the millions, Nsides tho expense of
moving an the . stock, for hay is scarcer
this fall than it has been for years.
