The Mcrkel sisters of this city appeared Wcducsduy night in the concert given at Dus MoincH in connection with the musical convention thero. The Register says of them : The duett by tliu Misses Merkel , "Fly Away Ulrdling , " wus so highly appreciate. ! by their hearers that they were recalled und responded in a manner that brought them additional praise. Milton Kite , a rather spruce young man , struck the city yesterday on his way to Fulton , Kansas , having been spending fiomo weeks in this stale visiting. Ho pawned ono of liirf suits of clolliing , and was last getting away with the proceeds in a big imli-prohibkion comvcntion of his own when Olliccr Leonard took him in charge and let him sober up at the calaboose. Ho was very much afraid that he might got vcrmiuon his clothing from such a lodgement , and gave notice that if he found any signs of stieli trouble ho would promptly sue the city for damages. The Nickel Plated circus came very near not showing yesterday. There did not seem to bo much to show. The li cense required by the city \yas too high , and the manager lopped oil' the mciag- ) eric part , and got out with a license for a variety show. The weather was bad. or had been some time or another , ami this prevented the unloading of their im mense trains , and for this or some other reason , there was no street parade , cx- cuut that made by a band and a few horsemen , who looked as solitary as the one of the opening chapter of the light weight novel. There was a pretty lair ring performance , but that seemed the only excuse for giving any entertain ment hero nt all. The show did not draw ninio' people to the citv , and the day was clmracteri/ed by very few of the features so common to circus days in the liluflej. The Nickel Plated circus gamed no great glory here , nor money cither. The ABC soap , whoso advertisement appears in another column , may bo found at the Boston Tea Co.'s store.

SprlnB Salts In Court Tnlks AVItli Troubled Tramp * A Trio of llnrd Ones Rifleman's IJrll- limit Opening. MM. Frnnk Hound Over. Tito long drawn out case of Mrs.Hnbcr , alias Frank , reached n stopping place yesterday. The cuso had been cm- tinned to allow both sides to protluco some additional testimony us to whether the girl , Lulu Morccr , s > toupeit at the Garni hotel , in Omalui , as claimed by the ilcfcnso. The proprietor of the hotel , Charles Stuck , was on the stand yester day , and testilicil tlint the Mercer girl citmu to the hotel about the 28th of No vember , in company with n man who claimed to bo her cousin , anil remained there until ho turned her out about the 8th of December lust. Ho huil her valise , containing her clothing , which ho wus holding for her board bill. He refused to bring over the hotel register , mid produce - duce it in court , and would not bring over the clothing to luxvo it idontilied. On the part of the prosecution wit nesses wore produced to .show that the hotel niuii must huvo boon mistaken nOout this being the girl who wis : at his house. The members of the Mi-rcer fuiuily cited incidents which went to show that the girl wus here sit the time claimed. Miss Hudson also tustilled to Her being in this city , and &hn fixed the date by iv picture card which hud been given her by Lulu Morcor. on the back of which the Mercer girl had written a sontiiui'iit ' and signed nor name anil the date. The court was convinced that the girl wus not at the Gurni hotel us claimed. This point being settled . .IudgoAylcs - worth rendered his decision bindinjr Airs. Frank OVIT to the grand jury in the Mini ofJl.OOO. . The defense in the trial of the cast ! liml not attempted to dispute the faet Cthut Mrs. Frank was the proprie tress of a notorious house in ( Jniuliu , und that she came to Council Mlull's to got girls to enter her house ; that .she learned of tliu Mercer girl , and that she. went to the house where the family live , and there nersiuuicd her to go to Qjnnjui with her. She represented to the family that she was going to touch the girl dress making , uml admitted that she deceived the girl's relatives , but claimed that the girl understood exuctly the character of the busines" , und that .sho hud bi'on u girl of loose morals before Mrs. Frank had formed her acquaintance. The whole brunt of the light was therefore on tlie question of the girl's piovious char acter ami reputation. The court became satisfied that some of the evidence lor the defendant was manufactured , and not very well put together. With other witnesses wco uttuckcd the gir's chili act or there seemed a pos sibility of mistaken indenity , and other of the testimony was con.lined to specific acts of the girl , on which there wus a conllict of testimony , and a great chance tor honest dillcronco of judg ment as to whether those acts showed her to bo depraved or only indUcrct. Tim judgment of the court vindicates the girl. The section of the statutes un der which the case is brought provides that "if any person inveigle or entice any female , before reputed virtuous , into a house of ill-fame , ho shall bo punished by imprisonment in the penitentiary not more tliun ten years nor leas than three years. " The woman was allowed 1o go on the same bond which was given by her some time ago , with the agreement that she would arrange a new bond to-day. The defense claims to bo greatly sur prised at the finding of Judge Aylesworth , and that there cannot possibly bo any conviction. The law and order league and the attorney for the prosecution arc , on the other hand , equally delighted. Go to Beard for low prices. 1 sell the celebrated Twin Burner gaso line stove.

Yesterday afternoon Policeman Nick O'lhien , and James Anderson , captain of the Merchants' police , arrested and lodged in the police station three crooks on suspicion. They gave their names as J. lloonoy , Charles Lewis anil Fred Wil liams. Roonoy , when arrested , was found to have on his person n sand-bag of dan gerous pattern and a pawn ticket tor an overcoat from an Omaha pawn shop , while Lowi'i had n conductor's punch.

WHITE HOUSE DINNERS. Cleveland Doilies tlio Tariff and Sil ver Questions , but ISccoincp Lo quacious About 1'otntoeq. Washington correspoii'lcnco of the New York Tribune : The olllclal dinners at the White house are said to bo mom than funereal in character. The president him self rarely talks , and his guests are thrown upon their own resources generally - ally for entertainment. At one of the re cent dinners Senator Vance sat on the right of the president. On the ether side ot Vance .sat a certain congressman , whoso name is not . \eoessary \ to mention here. A chilling atmosphere scemud to pervade the room as the company sat down to tlie table. The oysters were dispatched in .silence. The president said not iv single word. The soup was served while distressing quiet prevailed. Even the Sauterne which accompanied it was not able to loosen the tongue of the executive. "Why don't you talk to him ? ' suggested the congressman as he mulgod Vance with his qlbow sii'l looked in the direction of the president , who tovod " with a croquet on the plate in front"ot him. " 1'lniik , " whispered Vanoe , "haven't I tried to do it for the hist half hour ? lie doesn't seem to take nn inter est in anything. "Talk to him on the taiifl',1' advised the congressman. "Mr. President , " said Vance "tho tariu" is a rather important question nowadays. What " "Yes , I suppose it is , " replied Air. Cleveland as he turned his face inquir- jngly to the coiling. "Yes , L rather think it is. " Then ho relapsed into silence. Fifteen minute ; pab.sjil and again the congressmen whispered into Vance's ear : "Why don't yon talk to the president ? " "Blank , haven't 1 done so ? " replied the unfortunate North Carolina sufiator. "He doesn't seem to take any stock in the Turin" , " ho added dospnringly. "Try him on the silver question , " said the congressman. "Mr. President. " said Mr. Vance , smiling his most insinuating : smile , "an impression scums to prevail that in jour views on the silver question you do not " retire "Why , senator , your glass is empty , " remarked the president blandly , "allow mo to help you to some 01 this claret. I think you'll like it , " and again the chief magistrate of 55,000,000 freemen relapsed into his accustomed silence. Senator Vance was occupied with a juicy canvas-back when bis neighbor again reminded him by a stealthy glance that it wuo his duty to talk to the presi dent. Vance looked the picture of mis ery. A discreet shruir ot his .shoulders faintly indicated his feelings. lie was about to launch one of his best stories as n last resort to induce the president to talk , when his neighbor again whispereu behind his napkin : "Try him on pota toes. " "Mr. President , " exclaimed Vanco. with as much dignity as if ho were nit- dressing the senate on a proposition to abolish the civil service law , "Mr. Presi dent , 1 think that potatoes as staple of food for the poor " The word "potato" scorned to work a transformation in the president. It acted as if it were a scconil "open sesame. " His tongue loosened and ho bpcuine all at once loquacious , oven with erudition , on the important subject of "potatoes. " The potato in all its aspects became the subject of conversation for the next twenty minutes. Vance sat openmouthed - mouthed , struck with wonder and astonishment nt the torrent of eloquence ho had provoked. But there was no stopping it. On it went , regardless of consequences. Bermudas , Irish , sweet , seed every variety received consider ation at the hands of the president. Even that little story of Sir Walter Raleich and the gardener was told with as much relish as if it were something entirely now and unheard of. Then ho gave his experience in raising bolanum tuberosum in the back yard of his residence at Buffalo and in booing them ut Holland Patent. There are many ether points upon which the president dwelt ut length , and with an apprecia tion of the importance of the subject truly admirable. But all good things have got to como to an end , even n dis quisition on "potatoes. " It was with some satisfaction that Senator Vance sipped the last ( Iron of hid coffee nnd ex claimed to his neighbor , as he rose : "Po tatoes fetched him ! " "PotatOLS fetched him , " repeated the congressman , and "Potatoes fetched him , " hummed Vance to himself as ho tucked the bud clothes around him that night and composed himself to dreaming that ho had cor- nere'l ' the market on North Carolina pea nuts and suddenly become rich. BIG PAY FOR AUTHORS. Gcncinl Grnur i'ulil ut the Unto of $ ! ! Oa Miin for Ills Memoirs. A British periodical has announced that the editor of n high-class journal for boys in America ollorcd Mr. Gladstone $500 for an article of iifteon thousand words , this being at the rate of about $4 per line , nnd that Mr. Gladstone had de clined the oiler. Many publishers in this city , when shown the extract , said that they were not ut all surprised that Air , Gladstone should have refused to write for that sum. Occupying as he does the high social position of prime minister in England , the price offered seemed to bo ridiculously low. The ad vantage of Mr. Gladstone's name as a contributor to the journal would have been worth the money offered even if ho did not write a lino. Some of the publishers said that , looking back on the mist , it is really surprising to Hud what large amounts of money have been paid to writers for desirable articles. Harper's Magazine and The Nintccnth Century have often paid more than $10 per line for suitable writings by popular authors. It is not an unusual thing to pay $100 for a sonnet of only fourteen lines , a price nearly double that per line offered to the chief state officer of the British crown. More than $8 per line has been paid by the owners of magazines for several stories running a period of perhaps an entire year , if found readable , or possessing merit , or written uy a person whose mime would give it popularity. Especially is this the case iu the matter of books wiitteu for a special object or connected with the his tory of the country. An instance majr bo eitcd in reference ? 1o the recent work published as Ocn. Grants Memoirs , 'lliis" embraces two volumes , mid has also , even at this early yfago of the publica tion , given to the general's widow a sum equal to , it it docs noti OKCCCI ! . § 20 per line , and may net her a much larger amount. Miss Cleveland book Is also spoken of as ono which will realize to her a proportionate amount of money as royalties far exceeding that oflered Mr. Gladstone for the a iclo alluded to in the newspaper extract. During llui early days of tlio ow York Ledger Mr. Robert Bonner was noted far giving largo sums of money to authors | Wnbso names were considered of more value than the amount of printed matter which was the result of their pens. Many of the writers to whom ho paid what might appear to bo almost fabulous sums , were then not so well known by mime us Mr. Gladstone to-day ; but they were prominent enough for Mr. Bonner to desire that they should bo rocognixed as contributors to his periodical. On ono occasion ho paid Mr. Tennyson , now pool laiircul of England the large sum of sf.'i.O.X ' ) for n poem which only made twenty lines in the newspaper. This was at the rate of $25 ! ) a line a price that would almost seem beyond the value of any written production' .

You do not pay us n fraction of a cent for the chance to get the present. We are selling our A. B. C. Soap cheaper to-day than wo ever did during thc three years that it has been placed on the market , and consequently you get full value in Soap , We arc 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 all 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 s 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. 1-liousands wr < ° us : "Your A B. C. Soap is all that you claim for itj it not only gives satisfaction but we find that our most intelligent customers say that ii is A BLESSING IN THE HOUSEHOLD and are enthusiastic and speak in the highest terms of praise about it. Why don't you advertise it ? " It is therefore that we arc making this extraordinary effort to bring 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 you an array of presents which , for magnificence and usefulness , surpasses every I hing heretofore offered by any one firm.

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 liciug 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 , ch an improvement over the old system , as traveling by railway is over that by an ox-cart.
