A xr.\v .ion rou siiri.nv. Dick Adams , the jolly Sail Lake mer chant , and u eloo personal friend of I' . I' . Shelby , told Ilio 15ii : ; man yesterday that lie was positive that there was con siderable truth in the report of contem plated changes in the Union 1'aeillc treight bureau. The intere.fcU of this mad al the western end , he said , had always MilVerod from tlio votnsal of the company to put somebody tlii-re with full authority to aet without ( ' 'insulting the. ollleials at Omaha. "U'e want homebody at Suit Lake , for instance , like Monroe at Kaunas City. " continued Mr. Adams. "I talked with Mr. Shelby \ \ hen he went west on his way to the coast , and lie told me enough to satisfy me that a change of that kind will be made. If it is done 1 think Shelby will be sent there with tile rank of assistant general trallic manager. " TUB l'lliisl(5.NAI.S. : ( lieing a city ollleial , Water Commis sioner Lyman will probably refuse to serve on the committee appointed by the volunteer firemen to investigate the department. This will be applauded by all lovers of fair ) > lay , and especially by those interested in getting at the real facts in the ease. There are always two sides to u dispute , and the Iir. } : inclines to the belief that the rule obtains forcibly in the present Instance. Some of the boys may be a little slow in getting out , but when the confusing nature of the alarms given is understood , it would seem that th'-y hud a reasonable excuse. For in stance , the big whistle at the water works sounds at its bast when given a full head of steam , and allowed to toot for half a minute or so at a lime. Under the regu lations , however , the lire alarm consists of n series of short pull's , and unless quiet and a favorable wind prevails the chance * ire they go unheard. isr.N unwiTT's OAMI : .

CITY iinnviTir.s. A big scandal is developing in this city , thu publication of which will bis snro to cause a social earthquake. It is said to concern a certain wealthy business man who found a , young girl friend very attractive. Last week he ascertained that she was about to present him with an undesirable Christmas gift , so ho handed her $ riOO and induced her to leave town. At least that's the way the story goes , and it. comes from good authority. Driscoll , the slugger , was lined $8.10 in police court Saturday for pounding a. bar tender in Webb's saloon.

THU IWCKINO Itoportcil Sinponnlon of Hcof Slaugh tering : Denied by tbc Jluunj-er. A statement appeared in a Sunday morning paper to the effect that the Hammond mend Pijeking company had concluded to abandon , for the present , the beef slaughtering department of their packing house at South Omaha , and had dis charged a number of men emnloyrd in that branch of the business. This , the paper claimed , was a violation otacon- traet made with their employes and en tirely unexpected by the public. Mr. II. II. Meday , manager of the com pany was scon last evening in regard to the statements made and denied them in toto. toto."There "There is not a word of truth about them , " said the gentleman. "In fact , af fairs are just the contrary to what they are .stated to be. Wo have no intention whatever of stopping packing beef or anything el.se. No men have been dis charged , anil none will be. We shall use all the material wii can secure , and arc iirepared to buy all the cattle that can be brought to Omaha. On prices , we will pay the fame as ( 'hicatro , loss the expense of stripping to that point. How Mich a report as appeared .Sunday morning could have been started , i do not know. It evidently did not originate at headquarter * or come from any of the olllcers of the company. It cannot fail to do us harm , and I shall take .steps to have it denied in full. " WOH1AVS WO UK. Second Annual ttcport of tlu : Worn- IIII'H Christ Inn Association. This association , still in its infancy , has accomplished much during ( lie past year under its able and energetic president , Mrs. W. V. Doolitlle. The work has grown stcadiy and surely , and the assistance given in the pa-it , and the promise of it in thefutnrebi many of our most inlluenlial citizen * * , gives great encouragement for the coming yeat. The organization now numbers ifi'ty members ; the old , dilapi dated rooins"in the city hall building have given place to more comfortable and commodious quarters , No. 1001 ! Karnam fctrool , whore the "Homo'1 is now lo cated , and where the doors always stand open to homeless , destitute women , giving them protection until means of support can bo secured , not alone to reclaim the erring , but to throw around our young working women the protection denied them by the circumstances ol their lives. The matron's report shows that 200 women and children have boon given temporary homes during the year , some asking only a night's .shelter , others remaining for weeks. In some eases small payments have been made for board. Most of them have found perma nent work through our "information bureau. " In many instances persons sick and destitute away from home have ' had tickets purchased 'for them and they have been sent on their homeward way rejoicing. The demands upon the relief department were unusually largo during the .severity of the winter. To avoid im position in this department the work is thoroughly systematized. Committees are appointed to investi gate every case of destitution reported , each ward having its own committees. During the months of January , February and Mii-eli , ! 5'iO tons of eoal worn distri buted , ! MO pairs of new shoes ( los.iy noth ing of kiif : worn ones ) mid the amount of clothing , bedding and food yivcnaway cannot bo approximated , sniliee to say that over SOU families were given rebel , some from actual starvation. The total receipts of the Charily ball given in Jan uary for the bonclil or the poor of Omaha amounting to sjtt. J.Tl were distributed by this association. Air. Boyd , chairman of the linanco eommiUeo , sending as it was , needed $ -00 at a time , restricting its use to thu purchase of fi'el , clothing and medicine. The conditions wore faithfully com plied with. This fund being kept separ ate from the homo account , and an item ized account of expenditures sent month ly to the chairman of the finance com mittee. This aid department is but pno branch of this great work , the establishing and maintaining a homo is the primary ob- ieot. Section 2 in our constitution say ? : x'Tlje object of the association shall bo the spiritual and social improvement of all within its reach ; shall afford protec tion and assistance to destitute women and children until homes and means of support can bo scoured. " How can this be accomplished without a "Home , " u shelter wliero the aged and infirm can pass the twilight of life in comfort ; wliero homeless girls with only a pittance for wages can have the comfort of a home with only small payments for board , where mothers struggling with poverty can leave their liltlo ones to bo cared for while they are free to earn a day's wages. This is only an outline of what we hope to accomplish before our next anniversary. Our petition for a lot for building purposes is in the hands of the committee ot the city council on pub lic property and a fund for commencing the building is deposited in the bank to bn used for that purpose only. A largo purl of our -city lias been canvassed by committees to solicit monthly subscrip tions that thcro may bo a regular income to apply on expenses. Some one has truly said that before wo can call upon the public for aid we must show facts which justify the giving of Mich aid. When can facts bo found which will bettor justify the asking such aicl than those presented hero. Wn trust that this slight recapitulation of ( lie ycr.r's work will so commend itself to the public ; that our ranks will bo increased ten fold , that our treasury may bo full to overflowing , and that another year may tlnd us in a home established on a sure foundation. Thanks are duo all who liavo helped inuko this work a success , especially to thu kind friends who in addition to oft repeated favors provided a bountiful thanksgiving dinner tit ( ho homo , to the churches for their thanks giving alluring ! * , and to the press for frequent favors and endorsements.

The above melancholy announcement has already carried gloom and adiics. * to the hearts of a largo and atl'ectionatc family and a wide-spread circle of ac quaintances and friends. Many there wore amongst us who have been stricken down in the vlgorof usefulness and prime of life by the sword of the angel of death. Many of those dear to us have been called to rest , e'er their lives of promised useful ness had been developed torn away iroui all those earthly ties which render existence pleasant and desirable for them , for the Almighty in His wisdom and justice , had summoned them to appear before His eternal throne. I5ut when ago has crept steadily on , when nearly threescore score of years have passed , and the mortal is called hence , Death is robbed of its terrors , and the grave is justly en titled , ill the course of nature , to liavo some legitimate claim to its own. It is thus that wo should speak of the sudden death of Mrs. Ernestine Freyhan , mother of our esteemed townsman John Froyhan. The angel of the Lord has never carried away a purer spirit. What she was her children , relative-sand acquaintances best can tell ; for her home was her par.-ulisn. The pleasures and outward glitter which wealth could hcsUiw had no inllii- enco over her pure and innocent heart. Hut those. , too , who belonged not to her Immediate household , found in her a true friend , a pious and sincere daugh ter of Israel ; singularly unsollisli , she sacrificed many a tinio her own wealth to benefit others ; was ever ready to listen to a tale of woe ; and not alone oiler her sympathy , but second any object to ameliorate sulluring humanity. The deceased loaves n bereaved son and four daughters to mourn her loss. It may bo said of her that she had lived long enough for herself and immortality. It were well that her children would strive to imitate such a mother , and to till the void wliieh she loft by her demise to tlio extent of their united abilities. And let u.s ask for the departed soul the mercy of our God , and invoke for the fciirviving son and daughters His spirit of consola tion which miij turn thu allliotion to means of blessings and an incentive to labor onward for eternity and heaven.
