For some time past she has boon tin inmate of Molho Scott's house of Ill-famo , and Huko has been her "wild man.

The amount was tlio same in each case , namely II cents per cubic yard. B. P. Knight bid 01 cents for tlio game work. For the other kind of work B. P. Knight bid HJ cents for the first fiOOjards , 13 cents the second 500 yards , 14 cents tlio third 500 yards , 10 oouts the fourth 500 yards ; each additional 500 yards 2J cents per yard.

This bid was lower than that of Knight's in all except two features. In one of the o it was equal to that of the hitter's , nnd in the other lower than it by one-half cent. This is Mr. Condon's first bid for work of the kind in the county , and it is moro than likely that ho will direct more of his attention in this direction than heretofore The contract was awarded to him , though at present it may not be deter mined how much work will bo douo this year. Commissioner Corliss estimates it at about 70,000 yards. Tim work will bo done in the western part of the county as well us near Omaha , and consist in af fording easy access to and exit from tlio city.

Buckingham hall was filled last night again to hear the popular temperance speaker , Mr. Holt , lecture on "Hard Cash or the Fallacy of High Li- censo. " A most enthusiastic song service , led beautifully by Messrs. Gratton and Huteson , was very enjoyable. Among the many startling figures presented by Mr. Holt wore the following of the Oma ha saloons. Suppose there tire 140 sa loons in your city. It takes $5,700 per day to run them ; $31,700 per week ; il- , 000,100 per year , nnd the city receives $140,000 , per annum revenue for school purposes. In other words the citizens of Omaha pay $1 into the saloon to pay 0 cents into tlio school fund. A rather ox- iHnibivc collecting agency , is it not ? The Jec.turo was full ot good points which would hnvo staggered Mr Slooiini himself. To bo appreciated , Mr. Holt must be hoard and seen. Far beyond the finan cial loss is the woo and heart-nclio and tears ot the Inebriates and their innocent wives and helpless children. After nn enthusiastic meeting the Reform - form club was formally orgnni/.cd. The t llowing officers were elected : ' "President Fred M. Spraguo. Vice President S. L. Bannister. Secretary Chns. E.

Union sowing machine Ins is n life tlipo A MOCK HARRL1 Mrs. Augusta Hinze and the Story of Hof Life , THE PAVING PAPERS ARE SIGNED nirths and Deaths Mrs. Colnctzcr's Onrnmii Tlio CSood Templars Burglara nt Work Ijocal Miscellany. Swindled In lovr. A middlo-agcd lady came into police court yc torday looking for Judge Stenbcrg. The presiding genius of the tribunal had ins feet stacked up on his desk , smoking a fragrant Havana , while the dozen or more reporters of tlio after noon papers wore scattered about the room drowsily waiting for something to turn tip. It turned. The lady , who gave her name as Mrs. Augusta Ilin/.c , spoke but little English , nml eoneqtii'iitly hail to tell her story to the judge through an interpreter. The direct object of her visit was to have a certain woman arrested for slander. To back up her request she made n rather sensational statement , which , boiled down , is as follows. Ten years ago she was living In Ham burg , Germany. Her husband , Mr. Goldsmith , kept a small notion store in that metropolis , and when lie died she succeeded him as proprietress of the es tablishment. Ono dark day u smooth , oily villain giving the name of Theodore Sickle crossed her path. Ho was handsome , fascinating and persuasive , and when after some weeks , wooing ho proposed to her , what could she do but accept him ? She sold out her little property , and get ting together all the money she could ( ! f)00) ! ) ) , she started with him tor America , where , it was agreed , they should bo married. They landed in Montreal , Can ada and a ceremony was performed which , as the laily supposed , made her the wife of Sickle. After n few days of blissful existence , her fond dream of love was rudely disturbed by the dis covery that her Theodore was a villain , lie deserted her in Montreal , taking with him every cent of her money , besides all her jewelry. To make matters worse she discovered that the cere mony performed had been u mock marriage , and the handsome wedding ring which Theodore had tenderly placed upon her plump linger was a bauble of gilt and glass. Heartbroken at the dis covery of the deception which had been practiced upon her , she applied to the German consul in Alontrenl for relief. Ho kindly lent ear to her story , and paid her way to Iowa where she had friends. About eight yeara ago she came to Omaha where she married her present husband , Anton Ilinzo. Since that time she has heard or seen nothing of her bogus hus band , Sickle. The specific complaint that Mrs. Ilin/.c desired to make was against u woman now in this city who had become in some way apprised of her past history , and is using that knowledge to blackmail her ( Miy. IlinzQ ) . This female , Mrs. llinno alleges , is persistently trying to injure her by writing anonymous letters to her friends , by publishing articles in the German papers , and by circulating infamous stories auout her character. After talking the matter over Mrs. Ilin/.o decided to "await further develop ments" before swearing out a warrant for her detainer's arrest. THIS PKOSPKCTIVK PAVING. The Mayor Signs I ho Documents and tlio Cltl/.cns are to Choose. Mayor Boyd who had signed the or dinance creating the paving districts yesterday put his ofiicial hand to the contracts. It now remains for the prop erty owners to make their selections of the several materials offered for the streets. The ingenuity of men has de vised a liberal quantity of material for covering city highways , granite , cedar block , sandstone , asphalt , macadam , eto. All of these , .with the exception of cedar block arc practically known here , but a round of the citizens shows that the new substance will bo received with no little favor. It is largely in use in many cities of the Union as well as of the old world. lion , John A. McShauo cxpress'cd him self for the block , providing a good base is put down. Said ho , " 1 have observed in other cities the advantages and beauty of this material , and I thinlc at the rates offered by the contractor- , that it would bo highly acceptable here. At § 1.22 with plank and sand , ami at tfU.IJS with the same baliast and a live years guarantee , and at $1.88 with a cement biiso and the samu guarantee the citizens have n liberal margin of choice. If they take the last they will act advisedly , as the pavement is smooth nnd durable. The concrete base will last forever , and the character of the pave ment could bo changed fifty years honeo if desirable. " Max Meyer remarked that ho had al ways been largely for asphalt , but hinco nn opportunity ot ob taining cedar bloofe was given , ho would like to try the material "It miiit , however , been well found , and when that is done mMrcs a splendid pavement. It is employed In many European cities , and by the way , when in Paris hist year I noticed that on the great boulevards where the world turns out to drive , a cedar block pavement with n peculiar coating is being substituted for the us- phaltum which has been there foryears. " Low W. Hill remarked upon cedar block as n great material for a driving thoroughfare and n grand pavement for any purpose v/hen it is well founded. Wheels roll evenly and a horse- stops surely on the block surface , so that a street of this character makes a splendid drive way. City Attorney Coniioll thought that the streets about largo warehotiios where heavy hauling is done should be paved with stone , hut in the residence portion and on the hills a smooth pavement should bo laid. Ho know of cedar block ns a good material and woulit rather like to sue some of it tried , N. B. Falconer has an old-time love for asphalt , having first worked for its in troduction in tnis city. Since , however , a chance to employ the cedar block was ofiercd ho would bo pleased to see it used on those streets where the heaviest haul ing was not dono. "It's a splendid pavement - ment when properly built ; " said ho. "Cedar block streets nt the prices ollered would bo cheap and durable if a good base of concrete was laid beneath. " John A. Creiirhton was also found in a good humor for the block , staling that it would bo prcferrablo over stone for the residence streets upon which ho is heavily interested. A number of other citizens wcro spoken to and n general opinion largely favora ble to the new material was elicited. The Good Tomplnrs. Miss Anna M. Satmders , grand worthy chief templar of the I. O. G. T. of No- briiska , has been in the city for several days working in the interest of the or der. Thus far she has succeeded in or ganising two subordinate lodges , and to day will organise the district ledge for the First district of Nebraska , com prising Douglas nnd Sarpy counties. The sessions of the distiiyt lodges will bo held in the parlors , of the Saumlers Sfrcot Presbyterian church , , nnd it is ex pected that delegates will bo present from every ledge In tliosaitwo counties. This evening there > will bo n vocal nml instrumental -concert nt the church under the auspices > of nnd for the benefit of Life Boat lodco.

This part of the programme promises to eclipse any thing of the kind e\cr attempted in the city , nnd it is to bo hoped that the projectors will meet with the -success which such commendable enterprise warrants.

AMONG THE ARCHITECTS , A Hoviett of the Building Projects so far Obtainable. A > rnuulllccnt Showing for Oiitnlm With the Truth Not Vet Half Told. The numerous nnd important building projects for the coming season nro one of the best indications of the city's growth ami prosperity. As interesting as would bo a minute presentation of all the build ing plans , it is , at this curly iliiy , diffi cult to reach the fncts. Almost every thing is prospective nml unformed , yet the tow that have taken shape will com bine to make good reading matter tor the pleasure of Omaha's friends and tlio vex ation of her enemies withal. The clam- like clo'cucss of n man with n scheme Is noted nt this season , as above hinted nnd ofierrf some reflections worth noting. To repeal oneo moro , the mnjoilty of all the building projects of the coming season are as yet contemplative. It is discov ered that it would be no more vain to puzzle on the secrets of the sea's hidden depths than to work a statement of Intentions from any ono of the parties doing tlio contemplating. A fellow has a notion when ho goes to build a hoiifio that if ho lots his plans get out ho will bo handicapped by unknown rivalries , that his prospective site ( if ho has not yet a site ) will bo boosted in price by tlm too sanguine owner , and all that kind ot thing. For that reason the obtainable showing is small Everybody knows of the exposition building which is Hearing completion ; the largo addition to thu Union Pacific headquarters , which is now under way ; the city hall and chamber of commcrco.for which the sites are cleared , and the First National , Com mercial and Merchants' bank buildings , but there nro other important enterprises already openly afloat , which n tour of the architects will reveal : Hon. Wm. A Pnxtou is about to erect a fter the plans of Mendcnlssoln and Fisher , on the silo of the old court house at the northeast corner of Sixteenth and Farnum. a building that will probably bo the finest business block in the city. It will bo 132 feet square , five stories"ami a base ment and bo constructed of brick , stone and terra cotta. Its erection will prob ably run over into the next year , as so great u work is not quickly accom plished. Messrs. Mendelssohn and Fisher are also preparing plans for the projected Y. M. C. A. building which will bo put up at the corner of Sixteenth and Dodge. This structure will bo C0\132 feet , four floor" , of brick and stone. Its details are magnificent. The same architects have on hand the contracts lor a largo number of business ami dwelling structures which a little time yet will put ready to bo made pub lic. Since Mr. D. L. Shane became su perintendent for Mendelsohn & Fisher , the firm has been engaged for numerous heavy e.diliees , as peoplu have confidence in consigning their work to an exper ienced man who will give it his personal supervision. Messrs. Cloves Bros , also have a num ber of vcr.y important contracts on hand , among which , chielly , is the construction of the now Byer.s building , on the north- cast corner of Douglas and Fifteenth streets. This splendid structure will be CGxli32 feet , four stories , of pressed brick , and will cost $80.000. Thu work will bo commenced in the spring ; and rapidly pushed through. Messrs. Cloves Bros , also have on hand the construction of a block for Gco. Heimrod , to bo situated at the corner of Sixteenth and Webster. The building will be 6G\75 feet , three stories , and of brick , adjoining which will bo built a similar building , 23xOO feet , for Roedcr , the druggist. The same firm also builds for Mr.James Creigliton. three brick fiats , 00x40 , two stories and n basement , nt Davenport and Fifteenth streets. C. F. Dribcoll has , as well , a number of contracts just budding. Among these ready to reveal are two frame two-story dwellings for Jno. II. Loomis in Idle- wild addition. The sitmo architect will also put up for C. S. Raymond n $7,000 frame residence on Georgia nycnuo. F. M. Ellis , who , although well known in Omaha and throughout Nebraska , lo cated hero but six weeks ago , has n number of local contracts which are yet in reserve , and will bo given when this topic is taken up again in a few weeks. Mr. Ellis is now in Lincoln inspecting the Homo of the Friendless building , which ho has just completed there. Sidney Smith is pressed with prospec tive worlc and of what liu has prepared to give out are : A three story pressed brick business block. 00x88. at the comer of Sixteenth and Howard streets , for John Ledwieh.

AN AVKHTI5I ) IIOKKOIt. The Narrow Kscnpo of a Ilolntlvc ol * a AVoll-Kiiowii Omnium , Mr. George J. Storusdorh" , of this city , has received word from relatives in Now York of n strange experience of his cous in. Mrs. Charlotte McGuinnis. The lady , who lives in Richmond , Vn. , had. while on a northern tour , been .stricken with illness so severe that she was unable to travel further. She was coin- polled to stoj ) in New York and there was taken to the house of frionds. Despite the attention of the best medical skill ob tainable she sank and within two weeks expired , dying tranquilly and without pain , tliis , to all appearances. Her griel-strieken friends prepared for her burial Her cold and pulseless body was shrouded anil placed in a cofilu. On the day following her death the funeral ser vices wore held. The minister had pro nounced the rites'of the church and the nail bearers stood prepared , whllo tlio irlends of the deceased were taking their last look on llio face of the dead. As the line of people passed around the casket , one lady stinted and with a slight cry , fainted. Instant excitement prevailed and looking for a cause for the lady's emotions , the eyes of the corpse ( us it was thought to bo ) were seen to quiver nnd then to open wide. Nothing can do justice to llio feelings ot the bereaved relatives of the supposedly dead lady , Physicians were summoned nnd further restoratives applied , That was two weeks ago , anil to-day Mrs.McGiiinnis is in fioinul nml perfect health. She says that while in the trance she was conscious of all about her ami contemplated in powerless horror the prcparatioiib of her triemis to consign her to a Ihing grave. Mrs.McGiiinnis will probably visit Omaha this year , wiiero she has miuij * friends , Mr0. Gray's Obsequies.

These Two Ijnmln no .Seen by a ( Jen- tlctunu In This City. M. Baehrach , who enjoys the promt distinction of being an ex-Siberian exile , delivered a lecture last evening in Gor- mania hall ou his experiences in that country. His career has been an eventful nnd checkered one. Born in Hungary , dur ing the period of the revolutionary ( dis- turbanecs in Europe , ho has been con nected with al least two important insur rectionary mtcmculs. . From 1858 to IbGO he served under Garlb.ildl in the war for llio liberation of Italy. At the storming of Naples , ho was captured and compelled to retire. From 1802 to 1801 ho served under the Polish leaders in their unsuccessful struggle to burst the Rus sian shackles. In the hitter year ho was captured and sent with tlio other rebel leaders to n life of Siberian e.xilc. In 1809 under the terms of the Russo-Austrian amnesty , his release was secured , and early m 1870 ho was again found in Europe. Later on in 1871) ) nnd 'SO , ho turned up in Egypt where ho aetod its adjutant to the Khedive ( the father of the present Egyptian ruler ) , until the British successes overturned the regime mid throw the country under the control of England. "The advent of the English into Egyp tian govormentalaffairs , " said Mr iJiieh- rach , "has been one so far , 1 think , of almost unmixed evils to the nat ives. They , ( tlio English ) have only sue. eeeded in stirring up the the religious , lunatic hatred of the Egyptians in bring ing to the surface the lowest , most un- worthytruits of their national oharaeter. The consequence is that the natives , under the English vieeroynlty. have advanced no farther in general matters of civilixution than muter the rule of Turkey , and in many respects they have retrograded. This feeling may in time wear away and the nation may yield to the refilling influences of the Anglo Sa\on civili/ation. One thing is certain. Under Turkey the Egyptians would never have made any progress , while under the present regime there is * a chance that they may. Ono great obsta- clain ( lie way of this , however , has been nnd will be the total repugnance of the religious ideas of the two nations , the Egyptians , as you know , being to a man wet shippers of Mohammed , while , the English are Christians. " 'iin : cot'vriiY or MUUUIA. "Although n great deal has been said and written about Siberiafew people have anything like correct notions about that country. Siberia is n vast territory , larger by fifty per cent than the United States , Its resources ? Its mines of gold and silver and other metals arc inex haustible. It is not the barren waste that some people think it is , for corn , grain and other cereals are grown there in greatest abundance. Its farming hinds are the most fertile in the world. Cattle- gra/.ing is carried on with great success by some of the tribes. "The colonies of convicts are in the northern .section of the country. The colonial territory is divided into three provinces , known as oblasts , the Yakutchkor , Noi > ehrisker , and tlio Kiinisehatkcr. The two former oblats have sixty-eight colonies apiece , operat ing as many mines , while the latter ob- last has fifty-two. There are from -100 to 500 men working in each mine. Each oblast is presided over by a "colonel , " whi o the head of all the provinces is the governor general. "The hours1 of work in the mines are from 8 o'clock in the morning until -1 at night. The convicts all work eight hours without a pniticle of food , eating only two meals a day , breakfast and sup per. The punishments im posed upon the refractory con victs are something terrible. The knout is used principnNy , and frequently victims are beaten until life is almost ex tinct. The mine overseers care very lit tle for human life , and I have known the wounded , m a mine explosion , to bo thrown , still alive , into the same grave with the dead , to save the trouble of re moving them to the hospital. As .a general thing if a convict escapes , ho is not pursued , because there is not one chance in a thousand that ho will ever succeed in making his escape. Ho is almost sure to die. of cold * or starva tion , or both , in that sparsely settled country before ho has travelled n week. " Mr. Bachrach gives a very graphic pic ture of the sufferings on the long route from Porinco , Russia , to Siberia , u jour ney , which with forty-nine other exiles , it took him eighteen months to accom plish on foot. His descriptions of life in the mines ara vivid and realistic , and cause an involuntary shudder in the listener. Without an equal- Union sowing ma- chine. A Telegram ofCnudoluncn. Gen.
