AN ADVERTISING SCHEME , It Proves Objectionable to Some of the Knights of Labor. THE LULU MERCER SEDUCTION The SuiicHntemlcncy of tlio Dcnf ami Dumb IiiNtltiitlon Progress or the HOIIKO Ilcl'iK llullt l > y Uncle Hnni. An Krrnnt Knight. The Knights of Labor scorns to be liable to abuse ; , tlio same as other organi zations. One apparent instance has arisen here , aud has attracted tlio attention of sonic of the members of tlio local organ- 1/titioii , who pitrposo entering some sort of u protest against it , A gentleman arrived hero the other day , appearing in the role of traveling agent for a watch case factory , and at the same tlmo as master workman of an eastern local assembly. Ho was canvassing the retail jewelers and furnishing them with ad vertising circular * , of which the follow- inir is a sample , the names omitted for obvious reasons : COM.MU.NK'AIIO.V TO UNION ! S OK l.AUOH . \NI > WOllKl.VdMll.V. Wo desire to call your attention to t no HUM its ol the \\ateli case. Dtulni ? tlio Into conlllet ot the Knights of Labor with Hint company , the qiiallly of tlio ijoods was uuvcr railed In iincstion. They mo without doubt tliu best made watch cases in the mar ket ; mid now that tlio company hi\e : ac knowledged the justice ot our cause. It Is our biiunden duty to do all In our power , as per agreement , to lestmc their business to Its fminer piospeilty ; thercrore , when any KnlKht ot Lalmr wants a watch case , by buy ing ono of thin make he will he doinc an net of justice and eomtesy. and at the same time will hectuo autch case that is as leiuesentcd , and that for duality and workmanship eannot be surpassed. We hope thnt all Knltthts of Labor will see the justice ol helm ; as leady to help the company when they hiuo acknowledged their orior as they \\eio to place the boycott on when thetiouble lliht commenced.oins , f K. or L.IIST , XowpoVtVky. " This is said to bean nttemnt to use the ollieinl position of the .signer and the in- liuent'o of the order to help him port-Dual ly in liis business as traveling salesman for the watch case company , and hence a gross violation of tlio rules of the order. Several other circulars are being used by the sumo traveler for a like pnrposu , one being addressed to locomotive oiiiitncers , and others to dillerent trades , till being signed by him as master workman. The attention of the Knights of Labor of this city being called to the circulars , they are considering the advisability of tak'ing some action to head oil' such at tempts to use the order for such personal purposes. They object to : i master work man going about the country in this way. If he wants to travel on the road for some factory he certainly has the right to dose so , but not to use his title and position for the sake of gaining business for his par ticular house. A Dirty IJi The examination of Airs. Frank , charged with having enticed the Mercer girl into a house of prostitution , was commenced yesterday before Judge Aylosworth. Mrs. Frank , whoso real name is said to bo Mrs. Huber , keeps a notorious house in Oma ha , and the allurement of this girl is said to have occurred several weeks ago. The prosecution of the woman is being vigor ously pn h"d by Mr. James , of tlio Law and Order League , who is present during the progress of the examination , and who sooins confident that ho will succeed in convicting the woman. Seott Williams is proaoontinsr attorney , while the defend ant's interests are beinp cared for by Mr. Felker , ol Omaha , ana G. A. Holmes , of this city. The examination was made a secret one , not even the reporters being allowed to remain. This secrecy was at the request of the dolenso , who seemed to shun any farther publicity concerning the matter , a wish wbiob scorns not un reasonable jn view of the story told by I he girl , which , if true , should consign Mrs. iM'ank to some scene of still greater retirement than a court room with closed doors. There were several witnesses over from Omaha yesterday , among them Capt Cormiek , ot the police force , and Constable Kdgerton. The girl herself , Lulu Mercer , first took the witness stand , and occupied it mo-it of the afternoon , her testimony in chief being given freely and speedily , but the cross-examination being tcdion * and very prolonged. The defense tried hard to break down the force of her statements and got her to cross herself , but despite the cunning of the attorneys , slio dung to her original account of the allair closely. Her statement was in effect that she came to Council Bliill's with her parents about n year ago. She was then 15 years old. She had worked at dilVeront places , but earned meagre wages. About six weeks ago Mrs. I'nink came to tha house and said she was a dressmaker in Omaha , and wanted to get a young girl to learn the trade. After talking over the matter with the family it was decided ( hat she should go. On reaching Omaha slio was taken to Mrs. Frank's house , and for several days she remained there with out discovering the character of the house , or what was to bo her life there. Her questions in regard to sowing wore mot with evasive answers , and finally the truth was broken to her that it was a house of prostitution. She said slio tried in vain to leave , but tho.y would not let her go out of the bouse , and alter spend ing two or thrcodayu in her room , nearly crying her eyes out of her head , she was induced to enter the parlor and see com pany. Her protests against such a life wore continued , and several times she attempted to got away , but was forced to slay. Finally she got away , but with out her clothing , and when she wont back afterwards to claim her clothing , she was kept locked up in the hoiibo for two days , until Mr. James secured her re lease. The attempt of the defense will bo to break down the character of tlio girl , and to show tjmt she Wi1 : not gueh un utyg pouts ! \ she would have the public believe. An attempt will bo made to bolster up such a claim by witnc s < en , who claim to have known the girl before she wont to Omaha. This seems to bo the main ques tion in the case , the woman jiudhor busi ness not being so much in the contest. In confirmation of the ' girl's story snv- oral witnesses were examined yesterday. The father and the Miter told about the woman coming to the house , and what she represented to thorn in regard to'the life the girl was to load. Captain Cor miek also testified to the real character of the house kept by Mrs. Frank , and the number of girls there , and the lines im posed upon thorn from time to time. The examination is to hocontimicd this morning , and will probably occupy a day or two yot. The I ) , niul l > . Siiprrliitonilency. It is understood that the board of trus tees of the institution of the deaf aud dumb is to meet in special session next Monday , All sorts of rumors are atloat as to what will bo do no concerning the action of the board as regards a superin tendent , Ono Is to the effect that some of Prof. Hammond's friends will try te get the board to retain him , the report of the committee recommending his re moval being only a recommendation , leaving the board to act at it $ pleasure. While tlicre may'bo no legal require the board to dispense with Prof. Hammond's services , yet an attempt to retain him under such circumstances would be bitterly opposed , and rniso a storm about the ears of the members of the board , which it would be very dif ficult to still. Another report is that an attempt wilt bo made to scc\iro Prof. Talbot. who woj formerly superintend ent of ( he institution , and who is now nt Columbus , Ohio. As Prof. Hammond's term docs not expire until August or September , there will probably bo no Im mediate action taken in regard to the matter. WHOLESALE ] !

But at the same time we beg the public to understand ( no matter what our competitors say ) that we arc not running a gift enterprise. You do not pay us a fraction of a cent for the chance to get the present. We nre selling our A. U. C. Soap cheaper to-day than wo ever did during the three years that it has been placed on the market , and consequently you get full value in Soap , We are simply ADVERTISING our A. B. C. Soap on the most magnificent scale ever attempted by any one firm. Three years ago we started out to sell A. B. C. Soap on its merits , to-day thousands of the most intelligent housekeepers in this and .nil the principal cities of the Union use our A. B. C. Soap and marvel why it is not used in every home. The principal grocers throughout the Union tell > is one reason why its use has not become general is that has not been sufficiently advertised ; and another reason is , because many people who have bought it , did not give it the necessary and intelligent attention it deserves. They did not read the directions , and finding that it would not wash by laying A. B. C. Soap on top of the bundle of soiled clothes , they fell back to five cent soap. Thousands wri * v us : "Your A. B. C. Soap is all that you claim for it ; it not only gives satisfaction , but we iluu that our most intelligent customers say that u is & . BLESSING IN THE HOUSEHOLD and arc enthusiastic and speak in the highest terms of praise about it. Why don't you advertise it ? " It is therefore that we are making this extraordinary effort to biing A. B. C. Soap to the notice of every intelligent person and in order to induce every one to buy it , and continue to use it until they have fully tested its merits , we say to them SAVE THE ABC WRAPPERS And send them to us during the months of June or December next , and we shall distribute among yon on array of presents which , for magnificence and usefulness , surpasses everything , heretofore offered by any one firm. Send four cents in stamps and we will RCIK ! you a catalogue , which is now in course of preparation and which will give you a full description of all the presents and the mode TO OBTAIN A PRESENT > Those who have not used A. B. C. Soap , of course , will ask , "what is it ? " A. B. C. Soap is our own invention , and all who have used it cheerfully concede to it the merit of being the greatest improvement ever made in domestic economy. A. B. C. Soap , and the MODE OF WASHING WITH IT , is as different from all other soaps , and the old way of washing , and is as .much an improvement over the old system , as traveling by railway is over that by an ox-cart. A girl of tS , or the most delicate person , can wash WITHOUT THE LEAST EXERTION. J- ono hour , more clothes with A. B. C. Soap , than the most robust , with the hardest work and slavish toil tan wash with the best soap , and the old way of washing , in three hours. And withal , A. B. C. Soap is lYje mildest and sweetest soap ever manufactured. We warrant you can wash baby with it and it will look s sweet and fresh as a rose. .Remember , that while yen ; can use A. B. C. Soap in anyway or manner you please , it is best to use t'litccording to the directions on the wrapper , which will also teach you the new way of washing. Remember , also , that in order to obtain one of these presents you must save your wrappers and send t ti ) to us In : mail , during the months of June or December next.
