A REAL ROMANCE.
How a Man Turned Hia Wife
Into Some Practical
Account ,
Nothing Llko a Little Common bonso
In Love Matters.
Ab7ut two years ago there resided
in this city n hard working nnd re
opoctablo mechanic , an iron worker
in the U , P. shops , who resided with
his wife in a Bmall cottogo in south
Omaha. This cottage had been built
for him on the monthly installment
plan and for A time the payments
wore made quite regularly. 11 o had
ono child , a son , some ton or twolro
years of ago ,
In the same family ( hero boarded
n n young man , a clerk in ono of our
dry goods stores , who also rented a
rdom m the house. The wife of the
mechanic was a prepossessing bru
nette , with rosy cheeks and sparkling
eyes , and the clerk , while acting with
commcndnblo prudence , contrived to
insinuate himself into her good graces
and eventually win that place in her
heart which was duo to her husband
alone.
After a time payments on the house
became less cosy to moot and at length
failed altogether and the honest me
chanic was in danger of losing all that
ho had inycstck in it and of finding
himself without a homo in the world.
At this staco of the proceedings the
clerk , who had contrived to save something -
thing out of a very fair salary , offered
to the husband to pay off the entire
indebtedness on the house and giro
him a quit claim deed , in considera
tion of his relinquishing all claims
upon his wife , nnd to this the man ,
driven to despair by his straight
ened financial condition , consented ,
The bargain was duly carried out ,
the title to the house transferred to
the U. P. man and the clerk , resign
ing his position , left the city with the
wife of his friend for parts unknown ,
Time rolled along with its changing
moonn and revolving seasons , and
added to the ago of the parties to the
unlawful coatract , and to the maturity
of [ the boy who had been thus de
prived of a mother's love and care.
Three months ago the young man
wont to Kansas City on a visit , and
wnilo there promenading the
streets ono day , met his
mother nnd the man for
whom she had deserted him and her
lome , walking arm in arm on the
itroot. The recognition was mulua ! .
Tlio boy wrote to his father , and the
result was n correspondence between
: ho husband nnd lover of the woman.
This , after a short time , termin
ated in another transfer of the
woman back to her husband ,
who received a further consideration
of two hundred dollars , and soon
after the woman came back with her
son , resumed her former life in the
old home and is now living there hap
pily with her husband and eon.
The honest mechanic has thus by
a judicious investment of his tnatri-
nonial capital secured a homo , free
'rora encumbrance , and a snug little
sum in cash , and is now in a com-
mratively independent condition ,
while the dry goods clerk and the
wife have enjoyed the hoydoy of their
> ansion , und are both , no doubt , glade
o resume their former conditions. >
A BLACK EYE.
Sato McNamara Receives a Terrlolo
Founding : .
About G o'clock yesterday "tho
early risers who happened out on Far
nam street , mostly in search of an eye-
opener , saw a shocking sight in the
) crson of a woman , who was searching
'or an oflicor , and whoso face showed
ovidonccs of the most brutal treat
ment.
During the morning the marshal
was notified that there had boon some
trouble at the house two doors east of
.ho Metropolitan hotel , and Oflicor
Prank Klofnor was sent to investigate
the matter , being accompanied by a
BEK reporter.
Ac the locality indicated , which is a
small and dilapidated sot of rooms oc
cupied by Mrs. Kate MoNamara , a
lotorious woman of the town ,
the woman alluded to above ,
who was Kate herself , was found lying
on her bed in a back room , the front
icing used as a sort ot decoy cigar
store. Her left eye had disappeared
wtiroly beneath a mass of swollen ,
iruisod , black and bloody flesh , the
eye being as largo as a man's fist , and
; ho cheek terribly distorted. The pil
lows were stained with blood , as was
also the handkerchief with which she
occasionally wiped away the crimson
luid which trickled out from beneath
.ho lid. She stated to the officer that
lor wounds were received at the hands
of Billy Hovrell , who , it seems , has boon
lier solid man for two or three years
and who she says has beaten her twice
in the past forty.eight hours. Thurs
day she stayed up all night , expect-
ng him to do agmo violence , as she
md refuted to allow him to sleep
hero. A little after daylight ho came
o the door , kicked it in and gave her
the beating which resulted as de
scribed.
Bho WHS more indignant , apparent-
y , at the failuio of the police to
come to her assistance than at the
brutal treatment from Billy , although
oho averred that she didn't want the
attor around her any more. The
) flicor started out to get a warrant for
ho woman boater.
HUTTING HULL.
A Couple of Government Agents
for tbo Lincoln Custodian.
A dispatch published yesterday
tated briefly the fact that an investi
gation into the attain of Judge D. 0 ,
lull , of Lincolnj custodian of govern-
uent buildings , was likely to result in
onio startling disclosures , if the atato-
menta of the special agents were to be
rolled upon.
Judge Hull arrived in Omaha yes >
orday and does not look at elwor } -
'iod ' over the disclosures , j. ya
they have been carrying on * atur
chamber investigation and refused him
all chance to bo heard in the matter
The following is published in the
Lincoln Journal of yesterday regarding
the matter :
The arrival of two special ngonta ol
the treasury department Tuesday gave
rise to the rumor that some crooked
ness on the part of somu of the gov
crnmont officials WM to be invest !
gated and exposed. It is now wol
known in what direction the invest !
Ration haii been pushed , and the com
mon impression now is that frauds ol
a disgraceful nature have been reveal
veal oil. Suspicions had for some time
been entertained in Washington that
something was wrong about the man
agement of the finances connoctec
with the government building ,
and the result of two days inquirj
seems to leave little room for doubt
that D. O. Hull , recent custodian o :
the government building , has been
guilty of Inystomatlc and extensive
peculations during the entire term ol
his official service. Judge Hull has
for many years commanded the respect
of the business and social community ,
and his friends can hardly believe the
charges made against him. But the in
vestigation seems to have proved be
yond reasonable doubt that hn has
defrauded the government of largo
Bums of money. All expenses con
nected with tha building liavo
boon paid by the government
exorbitant rates. Ho has been in the
habit of making purchases of various
merchants and obtaining upon various
pretexts their signatures to blank
vouchers which ho afterward filled oub
himself. The drafts received from
Washington were sometimes double
the amount of the merchants' bill.
When they were asked to sign re
ceipts , ho explained that the draft for
convenience had bcoh made to cover
other items , and so the bill would bo
settled by his prtvato check and the
draft endorsed for the full amount.
In some cases , also , thn items of the
bills force the conviction that private
expenses were sometimes paid
out of the public exchequer.
The number nnd amount ol
thcso peculiarities cannot at present
bo estimated. It seems possible that
they will amount to a largo sum ,
though the sensational reports now
afloat in regard to their magnitude
may provn to bo greatly oxagoratod.
The agents who are conducting the
investigation are very reticent as to
their discoveries , and nothing definite
can bo learned from that source.
Thcso revelations are , of course , the
common subject of conversation upon
the streets and public sentiment is
very strong in condemnation of the
crime which brinpa disgrace to our
city and state.

The temperance people are taking
hold of the prohibition agitation with
enthusiasm Meetings nro being held
in every school house in the township ,
organizations are formed , nnd lecturers
nro busy. Workers design [
every homo nnd tnlk up subject.
It is believed there are very few in
this part of the stnto who
will not vote for prohibition. Ono
worker who visited twenty families in
an nftornoon reports that ho only
found ono whoso vote wns doubtful.
The same organized work is carried
on in the other townships of the
county. Rov. J. R Hill , a prominent
temporarico lecturer of St. Louis , ad

The 3 tate Line fair association are
busy fitting up their grounds west of
