Ilo had examined with care , ho said , the subject under consideration , and came to the conclu sion that the rules providing for secret ses- hfons ought to bo abrogated. There never Was a tlmo when the necessity for the abro gation of these rules , was made so plain as at present. Mr. niddlebcrgor submitted as a substitute for the pending resolution relating to execu tive sessions , n resolution provldlnc "that all matters , other than those relating to treaties , should bo considered and acted upou by the Ecnato in open session.

JudgeStonborg lias issued a warrant for the arrest of a man by the nameof Ned L'hllbrick for hoatinj ; his wife. If the story of the woman bo half true , the follow is nothing loai than n brute in human form. Mrs Philbrick's story aS' told to Judge Stcnbcrg is pitiful in the extreme. Bho is but 28 j'cars of age , and has been mar ried to Mr. P. for seven years. For the past year or so Phllbrlck , who is a cigar maker , has been abusive , cruel , and has failed lo provide support for Jils family. Mrs. I'hUbriek says that for the last four days she has had nothing to oat but bread and water , and that when she asktul her husband lo bring homo some moat ho struck her down. Their young est child is an infant still in arms , and so nearly starved .is the mother that she is almost unable to nurse It. The woman was turned over to Oflicor James of the Law and Order league , who secured aid for her from the county commissioners and Womcns' Christian Aid association. Philbrick when arrested had on his per son $20. Ho has been balled out and his trial will como oft'this week. The nbovo is from last evening's DEB , find is in substance what the woman said. The following is Philbriok's de nial : Ho denies nlmcst everything alleged by Ins wifo. Philbriek admits that should go to the Women's Christian Aid society and got food , but that it was entirely unnec essary , as ho has always provided food for his family. Ho says iv little family tilt started this , and that the woman whoso mother is at the bottom of the whole thing is making as much trouble as possible for him. Ills wife , ho says , denies that she made the above allega tions in the police court , but ho .Is doubt ful on that question. As to asking him to got meal , and he knocking her down , ho says lhat , instead of anything like it , she throw a pan full of mont at him at the lime. Tiio trial was to como oft * yester day afternoon at n o'clock , but she did not appear. The . $20 ho had in his pocket when arrested did not belong to him. butte to the Uigarmakcrs' union , of which he is treasurer. STUUCIC AGAIN. Sonic of Contractor Fox's Workmen Quit. Yesterday the gang of workmen in the employ of Contractor Fox , who are doing the grading on Seventeenth and Harnov streets , "walked out. " It seems that about noon the work was down to ono small point , and having thirty-six teams at work Air. Fox decided that ho would lay off six of them , as they could not all work to an advantage , the dump being too small. Only nine mon were kept on the dump , and they could not handle all the dirt. Ho gave orders lo his son to lay oft" these learns , naming only ono man named O'Doll , an affigator who must go anyway , and lold the young man to use Ins own discretion as to the rest. This was done. O'Dell ' , alias "tho Mayor of Council HUuTs , " influenced the other men to leave work and support him , ho wishing to go to work again. Mr. Fox wont up there about 3 o'clock , and found all the mon on a strike. He slated the facts to the men , and ten or fifteen teamsters returned to work. Those , how ever , could not keep the workmen some ninety in number busy , so the contrac tor ordered all work stopped for the day , and that all , except O'Dell , who wanted to go to. work again could do so this morninc. The above is a part of Mr. Tox's statement of the affair , and is cor roborated'by several of the workmen. AMUSEMENTS. "A Bunch of Keys" at the Boyd Fri day Night "MIlss. " Ono of the best of Hoyt's merry pieces , "A Hunch of Keys , " will bo presented at the Boyd Friday and Saturday nights , with a Saturday matinee interspersed. The play is now nearly at the end of its fourth season , and creates as much laugh ter as when it was first produced upon the boards. It certainly id not the highest form of dramatic art , but people who go to the theatre to be amused prefer it to amore moro dignified and sombre entertainment. It's dialogue is pure crisp and witty , null its situations , never descending to the vulgar , are productive of great mirth. The company , under the management of the popular Frank Sangcr , is one of the best of its kind over placed upon the stage , and has won so many successes lhat n failure with thorn is almost an im possibility. The goats went on sale this morning , and Iho rapidity -with which they were disposed of attested to the popularity of the play.

To the Editor ot the Um : : I thin ) : it about time for the Omaha board of trade to stiffen up its backbone and make the atlcmlanco of Uiu membership ; at its meetings compulsory. ThU is olloctunlly done in other places and there is no reason'why ' wo shouldn't have the same thing hero. Ono of Omaha's greatest needs is a powerful , nclivo commercial body lo promote the interests of the city in Ihe race with its competitors. This the board of trade was created to do , as well as to make a place of common resort , where our business men can congregate at convenient hours , transact business , meet and introduce strangers , etc. , oto. As it is now a slranger has to nearly run his legs off if lie wishes to moot any number of our principal men , in their widely sopar.iled places of business. This is all well enough in a village , but in a cily like Omaha , approaching 80,000 people , it is very unbusiness-liko and away behind Iho times. Strangers can not afford it and besides they won't waste their energies in any such foolishness. Doubtless Omaha has missed many line opportunities to secure capital and busi ness enterprises because tnoso strangers have no convenient place to meet the mon they want to see in the day time , without frequently exhausting them selves in what is often "a wild goose chase" for the reason , when they got to the ollico of the man they want to see ho is likely to be oil somewhere else. The board should bo on the alert for Etrancors anil capitalists seeking loca tions and investments hero , and bo atten tive lo them , instead ol throwing the burden on Iho Omaha club and individuals , as itis done now. It should compel its membership of 140 lo respect its authority , nnd when matters nro re ferred to committees they should bo given to understand that tno board in- toads to do Iho work , or else il will know the reason why , with such penalties as the board is enabled to inllict. It might as well bo understood first as last that Omaha cannot permanently sustain her present remarkable growth unless newcomers comers nnd capitalists have nvcnucs of employment opened for them. Omaha expects this from Ilia board of trade , and that body will bo wanting in its duty if it neglects to compel its full membership to take hold of thu thing and work with a will. It is done else where and it can bo done hero. While the board is about it , in the ef forts to secure manufacturers , those al- ivuly : huro should meet with the same encouragement extended to outsiders , whpiiovor they jvibh to enlarge or remove to moro convenient locations. Some of the greatest manutacturing es tablishments in the country have had the humblest beginnings , and if the board will look -around they "Will see the same thing going on in Oma ha. It should encourage our homo man- ufaclurors as well as Induce foreign es- lablishtuenls lo como hero. Neither should bo ucgleclcd. CITIZEN. Tea.

The coroner's jury which hold an in quest over the dead infant of Mrs. Vance , whose case was mentioned in Tuesday's UKE , returned a ynrdict to the effect that the child was bom deadowiug to causes which could not be exactly determined. The general opinion is that the drunken nnd uissoluto habits of the mother nro partially responsible for the death of the child. Yesterday Vance called nt the DEC oflico nnd made an indignant protest because the witness who Jirnt lodged the complaint against him was not examined at the inqucsl.

'Sold br ( IniiTBlsta. Ol'i'lOt 41 JUurriii'St. , Now York , WAS IT DAT BY SUICIDE ? The Cause of if , D ; Carpenter's Untimely Demise , Stil | a Mystery < WHO PURCH SEb THE MORPHINE A Complete In vcfiUgatlon of the Fncts of Carpenter's ! Alleged. Suicide Urines to'ljlehl Some Peon- Hnr Fncu. Sornctlilnfj Now a ml Interesting. The cause of the death of the late Wil Hum D. Carpenter , which occurred last week Thursday , is still shrouded in mys tery. Various llicorios have been nd < vnncod to account for It , with more or less degree of plausibility. The coroner's jury , after a cursory examination into the facts , returned the verdict that the deceased "mot his death from a dose of poison administered by himself. " The nature of the poison , so says the verdict , was unknown to the jury , but from the evidence was supposed to bo'morphine. ' This verdict , uncompleto as it Is , was unsatisfactory to the friends nnd rela tives of the late Mr. Carpenter , ns well ns to the general public. No blame is attached to the coroner , but it Is thought that under the existing circumstances n more thorough investigation might have been had. The young man's father en tirely discredits the idea of suicide , but is unwilling to stale what ho believes to bo the true theory in regard to his death. In view of these circumstances n re porter visited Iho scene of Iho young man's death yesterday afternoon nnd ascertained certain facts which may pos sibly throw some light upon the matter. Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter live in a small , one-story , two room house a few rods south of tlie shot tower. The house is sur rounded'by a growth of underbrush and is aecc'ssiblo only by abrullc , path being back about forty rods from the main road. A Gannon family who cannot speak English live next door to them , and asfdolrom them they have no neigh bors. The house stands in the name of Mrs. Carpenter who bought it with her own money. Where she obtained the money to purchase thu house and the lot upon which it is situated she docs not state , but a friend of hers claims that she made the purchase out of her earnings : is a seam stress. A thorough invcstigatian would show. From her own and the testimony of her friends Mrs. Carpenter is a much worried woman. She is rather above the medi um , and neither stout nor slender. She has n dark , sallow complexion and black eyes with small pupils , which , how ever , dilate wlich she is in n state of ex citement. Her. first ( husband was a man by the name of Mcltlnley , by whom she had a daughter whofdiou about two years ago. Kd HartdhauT'noxt sustained the martial relations witli her , and after him came a man named Kendall. McGregory and Green are also 'Tiioiitionetl ' as being on intimate ' terms with her , but whether . .ornot the wedding knot was ovpr tied is uncertain. That she was married inn bona fide man ner to Carpoutoc is , .however , proven be yond a doubt ' .is she has a marriage ccrtifioatnsigncd InSb' ' February by a well known justice ; of-tho peace in Council < Bluffs. * Mrs. Carpenter has a friend named Annie . .Nicholsonwho according to the people-in the vicinity has Dccoiiid'ds- -tranged from herp'arcnts and is inclined to bo n little wayward. She is rather a prettygirl about 18 years old _ , with eyes that spcak'volumcs to the intelligent ob server. When seen by a reporter for the phlegmatic looking man named Bruce , who lives in the neighborhood. The girl was subjected to a volley of questions which she answered in a calm , matter of fact manner. She told the story of seeing- Carpenter take something from under his mattress , lie was Jn bed al the time. a few minutes before his death and piace.it un- dot the bed covering. Just what this was she said that she did not know , as at this point she went out of the room to call Mrs. Carpenter , who was fccding'tho chickens. She said that she heard -him wfllk across the floor. The theory advanced at the time , and which was accepted by the coroner's jury , was that the package removed from the mattress contained the morphine which caused his death , and that when ho walked across the room he placed the paper containing the powder in the stove. The bed in which ho was lying was , in the front , and near it was an ordinary Hal-topped kitchen stove. The girl stated that she did not hear him open the' doors to the stove or re move the lids , although she 'could hear him walking across the lloftr. No paper such as that used by druggists in wrapping up powders could at the time bo discovered , but the next day Annie found a serai ) about two inches square under the bureau. The coroner , however , who examined the premises at the tlmo , could lind nothing. In the immediate vicinity llioro lives a man by tiio name of Joe Hill , with whom Carpenter slept the night before. Hill , who was next visited by the reporter , is a man about45 years old , with a peculiar , gri//.hud board. Ho was in a loquaoioiis mood , and when spoken to about Mrs. Carpenter blurted out : "I'll help her. I'll go down to the meeting to-night and clear her. " "S s sh , " said his wife angrily. " ( Jo b-1. " to - you - , was the trouble she got for her pains. Hill then went on to state that liu had been out with Carpenter the night before his death , and had slept with him at the Kvans house , a small hotel on Vinton street. The next morning Jio stated that ho wont with him to the drug store of 111 Hassmusson , No. IfiOl Venter street , whero'Carpentcr procured S5 cents' worth ol'mwrphino , paying for it with a silver jlQllar , which lie took from his vest pocket * Ho says that the drug was put up'iyWlr. Rnssmusson him self , who dividi'4)-itijnto four powders. wrapped it up iivTa 'piece of paper , and told him to take < 5u61 > owdor at a dose. Ilassmusson isbno of the most highly respected men in-South Omaha , and his neighbors say that lite word can bo de pended on implicitly. Ho told the re porter lasl niglij/tflniV Carpenter was not in his store the morning of his death , and that moreover luv'naVer sold him a grain of morphine. H)9olork ) , who was also scon , said that hcnvas out of town on the day in quesliqn and that ho had never given Carpenter the sopovilio. Ho stated , however , that Itassmussou's predecessor In the drugstore told him ( hat ho had often dispensed bottles of morphine to Mrs , Carnenlor. whom ho took to bo a victim of the habit. Further more Hasamusspn denied ever selling Carpenter liquor of any description , al though Mrd. Carpenter stilled to a re porter her husband was in the habit of obtaining liquor al the drug store mid that she had warned Itassmusacn against felling it to him. It was not a difHcult matter to trace Carpenter's proceedings on the morning of his death. Ho undoubtedly spent UIQ previous night at the Kvans house , as claimed by Hill. Ho arose thu next morning at 8 o'clock and ate a light breakfast. Ho then blurted out with Hill to' Flannery's sa loon nwliero ho mot a man named Kugcno 1'lckert , Ho and L'iokwt drank- three or four glasses of boor togi-ther and started out iu the direction oT Carpenter's homo. They left between 11:30 : and 13 o'clock , ana according to the statement of Flahliery , who saw them depart , were both perfectly sober at the tlmo. Car penter's wife , however , nssorvatcd lime and again to a UKE reporter thai her hus band came homo between 11 and 13 o'clock In a slate of beastly intoxication. Jho distance from the saloon to his house is perhaps a mile , and , if the wife's statement Ls true , during the not more lhan half hour occupied in Iravcrslng it he became so much intoxicated that ho was unable to stand up but was brought homo by one of the neighbors named I'aulscn , who assisted her to put him on the bed , Aunio Nicholson stated that Carpenter and his wife lived on happy Icrms with each oilier and as far as she knew did not quarrel. Mrs. Carpenter , how ever , admitlcd lhat they had numerous family rows of more consequence. The neighbors state the same. Mrs. Carpenter does not deny thai she lived on terms of intimacy with her hus band for a long time before Iho marriage vows were performed. The neighbors agree to this statement. Mrs. Carpenter admits that her hus band was of a jealous disposition and that she partook of his nature in this respect. The neighbors state that this was the fact according to their observation. It is also maintained that her former admirers or husbands , as she was pleased to oall them , were In the habit of paying her visits alter her marriage to Carpen ter. Whether ho know of tills or not is unknown.

[ Hy telegraph to the Now York Herald. ] The twin sets of bur glars' tools found in Iho coal shed on Osborno street have been turned over to Chief Ebersold and are now on exhibition at the central station. They arc un doubtedly the most complete set of tools ever manulactured. The "kits" com prise two combination drills , three three- quarter inch screws , one top wrench , a short wrench , live laps of different sizes , ton twist drills or "bits , " two punches a file , a square socket , a jackscrcw , ton highly tempered wedges , thirty percus sion caps , ten yards of fuses , n pair of handculls , and live sticks of dynamite. rOAVKHKUI. SAFK-IlltEAKEItS. The combination drills are most re markable contrivances. They are so de vised that they can be atlaehcd lo Iho combination knob and operated around it for a radius of live inches , no pressure being necessary , the adjustment having suflicicul weight to pierce an inch plate of chilled stool in four minutes. With one of these the combination of almost any safe could1 bo completely cut out in side of half an hour. There is no clue to the owner or maker of the tools , but they were undoubtedly turned out by an ar tistic mechanic. We challenge all the oxpcrls in the world to attack of ' one pur Hurglar-l'roof Safes with tools similar to the above- described "wonderful burglar's ' kit"and if they will drill a hole in thirty-six hours with these tools , wo will forfeit $1,000. r Diebold Safe & Lock Co. , JOHN W.

Yesterday afternoon at about f > o'clock the Glencoo mills till was taken out of the ollico. It seems that for : i half an hour a couple of follows had been hang ing around the mills , but conducted themselves in such a manner as to excite no suspicions. The mills proper are in the rear of the building , with a small ollico in front. The money is kept in a till in this ollicc , and as they have had no trouble heretofore" , not much attention was paid to it , sometimes no ono a't all being in the oflico. These follows wore aware of tiiis , probably , and while the ollicc was vacated , at about tiio hour named , they walked deliberately in and one follow took the till under his arm and walked out of the building. They were scon , however , and a chase was insti tuted. They ran down through the alloy between Nichols and Izard streets , then into another alloy between Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets , where they wore captured by a man on horseback. 15y this time quite a crowd wore in thu ranks of purunors , but when slopped by the horseman ono of the robbers yelled to bo'loLalonc , and they would settle it. At thii same time ho handed over the till containing the money ho drew a revolver , which ( < o frightened his capturor that both the fellows escaped. There was about 10 in the till. John Golden was arrested lasl night on suspicion of being one of thu thieves , and also William Hurl. The arrests were niiulo by Olliecr Koso. Ilnnnway. About 3 o'clock yesterday a team attached lo a coal wagon came dashing around the corner of Howard and Thir teenth streets. They were making a mad rane for supremacy over the driver. Mossrti. Frank and U. F. Smith were in a buggy belonging lo ( Ionian's livery fita- bio ana jiift going to turn in. They heard ( lie yells of the driver of Iho runa way , but could not got out of the way , and the team ran into thpbuggysmashing the uxio and tearing oh" ono hind wheel. Hoth gentlemen wore thrown out , but happily sustained no injury. The runa way team was stopped on Harnoy eireel noarTwclth. Police Court Docket. , T. J.

TJI13 KHV1VAU A New Speaker Last NlRht Scones and InoldontB , Ten Chinamen silting near Iho pulpit looked very wise and solemn ns the choir opened the revival service Cnl Iho Exposition building last night. Their song was "Havo Yon the Garment of White ? " and the Mongolians appeared to join in the music , though It is much to bo doubted whether half of them know what they were singing about. Another song followed in which the rod-faced young man who handles the balon got woefully out of time , nnd man aged to keep three or four swings behind the choir. Still ho struggled manfully on. A very small infant in ono of the front rows intermingled its prattling with the "amcns" nnd "Lord " , grant its" which accompanied tbo opening prayer by Hov. Broderick. This circumstance did not in the least wise nuuoy the divine , who made a most powerful plea for the descent scent of the Holy Spirit. Moro singing followed , the collection was taken up by a small nrniv of ushers , nnd then Hev. Harris , of Ihe First Baptist church , led in n fervent prayer. Mr. Hitler advanced lo the cdgo of the platform , and in a few words introduced hfs friend and former co-worker. Hov. Mr. Crcighton , of the St. Paul M. E. oliurch , tbe speaker of the evening. Ho commenced by nlludina to Mr. Hitler's work in other cities , which , he said , had been a good one , "Tho worst town ( but ono ) t over saw , " ho said , "was Gnlllpolis , n river town on the Ohio. ( The ono city I refer to is Omaha. ] well , this city on the Ohio wns n wicked place , with a bad reputation abroad. It was the centre for river trndo and a sort of headquarters for the gam blers , and other disreputable characters. I worked with Brother Hitler in Galh- polls , and a most glorious work ho ac complished COO souls being converted. At Circlovillo , Ohio , Brother Hitler worked In the revival , nnd 010 conver sions followed. At Lincoln , where Mr. Bitlcr came out to help mo at my solici tation , there were 800 conversions. New 1 don't believe Omaha is any worse than Lincoln nnd what God ean do there ho can do hero. I believe you are going to have a great revival hero , something the like of which you never saw before. "Now the first tliing'wonced , to have a great revival , is to get 'loosened un. ' 1 don't mean anything rude or crude , or anything that won't bear criticism. We must have a free nnd easy spirit among us that will enable us to work with and lead the sinners to Christ. " The speaker said that in his church at Lincoln there were deep earnest prayers being made for the revival in Omaha. "A constant incense of intercession is going up to heaven for the success of the work in this city , " ho remarked. The revornou gentleman's remarks were rather rambling. This ho recognized - nizod himself half apologetically , us ho said , looking towards the reporters' table , "I am afraid that it thi.s speech is reported correctly that it will make a rather poor showing. " Mr. Crcighton then spoke briefly of the necessary element of conversion. "Yon must have humility , " ho said , ' 'must bo ready to humble yourself before God. When Henry Clay was dying a clergy man wns called in to pray with him. Ho started oil'by praising the dying man by telling God what a great , good , glori ous being Henry Clay was. 'Stop that , ' said the ayiug man , 'God will damn us both. ' The wise , old statesman , standing on the brink of the grave , knew that ho must humble himselt before God. " The reverend gentleman denictctl very strongly the terrors of sin. "Get out of the way of your life of iniquity , " ho cried. "Give up yourself to God , and get from untter the million mountains of sin which are tumbling upon you. Think of eternity , and if you don't tremble you arc not a thinker. By the height of heaven , by the depths of hell , by an awful eternity , I asK.you to think think on the momentous subject of the salva tion of your precious soul. "If God should ilo the very best thing ho could do for you I'll ' tell yon what it would bo. Ho would lead you all lo re- pentence. May God liless yon every ono and give you a thousand souls is my earnest prayer. " As on the previous evening , Ucv. Hitler invited all those \ylio were scokiuir Jesus to come inlo the inquiry room after the service. An invitation was extended to all who were Christians in the audience to arise. About nine-tenths of those present stood up , including the China- men , who after looking atone another in- ouiringly for a moment , rose in a body. They appeared to bo very much pleased about something. Ever nnd anon they would nudge one another , and laugh gleefully. "Suppose now , " fiaid Mr. Hitler , "we nave a good , old-fashioned tima of handshaking and ex hortation. " His suggestion was readily complied with , and the congregation bcznn to "circulate. " Christian shook hand with Christian , and the sinner came in for his share of encouragement. The reporters' stand scorned If ) , bo the central point of attack. The newspaper mon responded well , dropped their pencils anil paper , anil gave themselves over to a brief season ot handshaking. Some of the moro earnest of the workers plead earnestly with the scribes , trying to point out ( o them the right path. They wore obliged to give it up after a time , without , it must bo confessed , having minion deep impression. One very earnest - nest old lady foil lo exhorting a bald- headed member of tbo journaliMlo craft to turn from his evil ways. She , too , was obliged to retreat. At thoconnluslonof the services , many seekers crowded into the inquiry room. A number of conversions followed. Hov. Mi.
