Connor's Wish Oheorfully Complied With. To the Mltorof The lice. OMAHA , October 21. "Trny nnd lllanche , And curs of low dcgrco. " One of the latter class , sinning him self Joseph A. Conner , barks nt my heels through the columiifl of this morning's (1'riday ( ' ) Ilcrnld , nnd thinks thnt lie has thereby earned his bone to pick from the railroads , and will un doubtedly join the "Blanche" of The Herald in claiming the crumb from his master's table. This fellows bark is a fair example of the arguments used by the rail road champions on the transportation question. He narrates what ho rep resents aa the efforts inado by mo to get the resolutions which I offered in the state democratic convention , be fore the committee on resolutions of thnt body. There is but one thing the matter with that harrowing tale , nnd that , is , that there is not ono word of truth in it from beginning to end. It is purely a figment of the brain , con cocted to enlmno the imporli.nce of this follower of the pack. I was not in the room of the committee on res olutions at all and did not ask Air. Morton to embody my resolutions in the report , or say aword to him about it of any kind , I did not ask the committee , "excitedly" or other wise , if they would not receive my resolutions , and this doughty raijroadchampion did not tell mo that they would not , or say a word to mo on that subject , or any other , during that ovmiinj. ' , except wlut was said in open debate in the body of the convention , after 1 had presented my resolutions. I did not "turn to leave the room disappoint ed , " etc. , for I had not entered it , and all that this learned authority on "the transportation question" has stated on that subject has not even a shadow of foundation in truth. ! He clainiH to Imvo been introduced tome mo , nnd had n two lioins1 talk with mo tin the cars oil this "transportation problem , " of which ho claims to bu the great expounder. There is very little more truth in this assertion than in those I have just noticed. I do remember that on occasion , when on my way to Lincoln dur ing the session of the legislature , Mr. Diiiloy came to mo and said Unit some one , whoso name I du not now remember , but it is very likely that it wa s Joe Connolly , wanted to talk with me on the railroad question , and tliat ho was a democrat. 1 wiw , of course , very glad to obtain any information mation 1 could front any HOUICO , ovun though as unpromising ns that seemed to be. I was not disappointed in my anticipations , for I had been in con- vernation but a foiv minutes with thin sapient solver of "the transportation problem , " before I discovered that ho was one of the pets that was receiving special rates from the railroads at tin ; expense of his competitors in the same biwinosB , nnd ho very naturally depre cated any legislation which would in any way disturb Una operation of "the transportation problem. " Ho was actuated by the same high and patriotic motives ns the silver smiths of Ephesus in their tumultuous cries of "Great is Diana of the Ephe- sians. " As soon as I discovered this I closed further conference , tor I knew that the arguments , of whatever kind , would be lost upon a juror who had some of the stolen pork. Our whole conversation lasted probably ton minutes , and is the first and last I have had of any kind or na ture with this modern light on "the transportation question. " Is it not a littlu remarkable , Mr. Editor , that thc.se patriots like Dr. Miller and Joo. O'Connor should be come so irate and abusive in the dis cussion of the cold abstract ques tion of the right and duty of the law-making . power to do that which the constitution enjoins ns a sworn duty upon every legislator , namely , to "pass laws to correct abuses and prevent unjust dis crimination and extortion" in railroad companies ? There is tip other question of policy or political economy , the discussion of which excites u certain class to such a degree , and it will bo founJ uni formly to bo that class , whoso zeal is purchased and paid fur in dollars and cents , or whoso reward is the ill-gotten gains derived from the labor of others , and at their expense. expense.GJSO. .

The date of the concert will not bo fixed until a meeting to bo hold on Sunday , but it.is very probable it will take place within two weeks. The members of the club , each ono of whom has a high reputation individually , nro practicing faithfully every day , and ono of the finest entertainments of the kind over given in Omaha may bo expected. WANT TO SEE HIM , Mulford & McIIonzio After a Former Airent in Omaha. About six months ago Mulford & McICenzio , of St. Louis , ticket brokers , established a branch office in this city near the depot. Their agent was 0. U. Hill , n young man of considerable ability nnd culture. Hill madoa great many acquaintances and became de cidedly popular with ' 'the boys" in a short time. It wa ? known that lie "flew pretty high , " but , as ho claimed to bo making plentyof money , notliini ! was thought of it. About n month ago McKenzie c.imo to Omaha nnd in vestigated Hill's accounts , when it discovered thnt they were considerably mixed up. McKcnzio returned to St. Louis , leaving Hill instructions to continue the business and remit daily. Matters ran along thus for two weeks , when McKcnzio suddenly walked in ono day , asked for the tickets , money und books in the agent's possession and walked off with them. Hill remained in Omaha three or four days nnd then disappeared lie loft some indebted ness hero , but mostly in small amounts , Recently Mulford & McKcnzio evi dently repented of having allowed Hill to leave , nnd issued several thousand dodgers offering $100 reward for the lattor's apprehension.Vlmt their object in now securing him is is uncer tain , but may bo prompted by the discovery of additional j'orrors' ' in his accounts. At the time McKongio wn hero hn stated that Hill had used about S500 of the firm's monny , nnd that ho was working for them on n salary , neb commission , as ho had represented. Hill is a gradintu of Cornell University nnd was a very gentlemanly follow. His aptitude for business was unfortu nately supplemented by ton strong a liking for spanking livery teams and other "fast" enjoyments , and ho thus became involved. A few weeks pre vious to his 4 employer's visit Hill claimed to have been robbed of about $200 in money and tickets , It is now claimed that the robbery was a put up job. Hill is supposed to bo in Colorado. Dr : Amelia Uurrouahs , Withnell house , Tuesday and Fridays , 10 a. in. to 8 p. in. oct 22-lm-iruto A.

There nro mnny strange and curious phases of human character and con duct in this world which are nearly beyond the conception of thinking pot-sons. The oddities and myster ious beliefs practiced by certain classes are past the comprehension of ordinary mortals. Talismanic tokens and sofa guards against ill- luck , danger and misfortune are freely used and worn by a great number of people in all of the differ ent walks of life. Homo have great faith in the theory that it is braving Providence to commence a journey on n Friday or begin an undertaking or business of any nature on that day , because it has generally been called "hangman's day , " and indeed it is recognized by the courts throughout this country and England as the day upon which judicial execution of the extreme penalty of the law is accom plished. Ono of the most strange and super stitious practices made UBO of is that found amoni ; the morally loose class of women in this city , who burn inccnso in their houses to keep away bad luck nnd misfortune. A reporter for THE : , beiiifj of an inquisitive turn of mind , visited a prominent druggist yesterday to learn how far the habit prevailed among the various clnsses of prostitutes , and ho was surprised at the result of his inquiries. The druggist said that the practice of burning incense was ono almost universally indulged in by women of the town ; that while some were en lightened enough not to put any/aith in it , the majority did. Ho said that the sale ot drugs composing the arti cle used for burning was an important branch of his trade. The drugs used are the same as these used for religi ous ceremonies , and are very expen sive , as they are imported from dis tant countries. Ono of the drugs is called olibanum or frank incense , and is a sao taken from the tree of olibanum , which grows in Arabia. It is the same incense - cense spoken of in the old Testament ns being used in church ceremonials. Theothorused is called retina draconis , or dragon's blood , and is obtained from the Calamus palm tree , which is grown in Borneo , ono of the East In dia Islands. These two drugs are properly mixed and uropared for this particular use , and while burn ing will emit o peculiar fra grant odor. From whence the custom was derived by this class of people it is useless to conjecture , but certain it ia that they do burn incense and that they have the greatest laith in its cllicacy ns a moans of averting evil and sickness of all kinds.

StonllHR IlnntlnR There seems to bo n not of thieves in this city who devote themselves to stealing trained hunting dogs. Omalm contains a number o ( sportsmen - men , and thcao spend considerable time in carefully training doga to na- sist in the hunt. When they arc stolen and fall into careless hands they are forever after rendered al most useless in the pursuit of game. The sportsmen's club in North Omnlia ia now thoroughly organized , and ono of its great aims will bo the prosecution of any parties found stealing , or im plicated in the stealing of dogs , It is n good move , that should bo followed in all parts of the city. UNITED STATES COURT. Important Oases at the Next Circuit , A number of important and inter esting cases are docketed for the coin ing circuit of the United States court , to commence in this city November Mill. Among them is the suit of Birdsill Holly nnd the Holly water works company against the city water works company , of Omaha. This suit involves a patent which the Holly company claims lias been infringed. From some matters , however , con nected with the suit , it is not ex pected that the case will ho very vigor ously prosecuted. Another ono is thp suit of the Ponca tribe of Indians against the Sioux na tion. This case relates to title and possession of certain land on the res ervation , which lies partly in this state and partly in Dakota. Two ac tions wore begun by the Poncas , one of which they won a few years ago , and this suit may bo dismissed , as ombrac- in'g the same title then contended for. The other cases which refer , espec ially to Omaha are : Samuel E. Rogers vs. the city of Omaha ; Oliver vs. the city of Omaha ot til. Both are suits relating to the title of lands. Fixed It Up. A man named Lockstad , living out side the city , was arrested and taken bctoro a justice of thu peace on the charge of kicking and beating his wife , who was alleged to bo in a critical condition. Bockstad pleaded guilty , and the otlicor of the law was about to impose a heavy penalty , when the wife appeared on the scene and beggoi so hard for her husband that he was fined a small amount and the pair rode off together in a lumber wagon. From something in the woman's eye , it was Hiispicioncd that she had concluded to settle that matter herself , and further returns are confidently expected from that precinct. On a Hurrah. Ono of the nymphs , known as Stella King , got on a hurrah on Thursday night and made things generally live ly on Twelfth street. She opened the ball by attempting to turn a buggy , in which she was driving , around in half its length , and smashed it up. After this performance she took a whirl among the saloons , and finally became so pugnacious in ono on the corner of Twelfth and Dodge streets , kept by ] ' ! d. Cornell , that the proprietor put her out. At this juncture an otlicer along and Stella sparkled for the rest of the night in the city jail. "Don't Know Half Their Value.
