A snmll. dried up , Gcrmnn emigrant giving Ills name as Matthias Survatiua was sitting in tlio contra ! police station yesterday , his oyus disconsolately jixcd upon thu lloor. Ho was there to ap pear as accusing witness ajrainst John Thompson , a Missouri Pact lie train boy , who , ns ho clnims robbiMl him of$10 on thn train last night. From the story told by Sorvatlus to a reporter for the linn , it appears that ho is traveling with his wife and four small children from Green county , Kansas , to Itock Island , III. Thursday shortly Lbo- lore tlio Missouri Pacific train ranched Onmhn he WMS approached by the train boy Thompson , who asked him to change a $ JO bill. He refused at first , hut finally consented to do so. Thompson jerked tlio pocket book from his hand , and insisted on counting over the money himself. Ho made the change , as Scrvatius sun- posed , correctly , and returned thu pocketbook. Mhnr.sday Sorvatius re mained with his family in tiie illulVrf , and was preparing to leave yesterday on the castbound train , when ho suddenly took n notion to count his money , and in doing so discovered that ho was * 10 short IIu returned to Omaha and laid his case' before Olliccr Dull" Green , tolling him that in all probability tlio train boy had committed the theft. Green at once hunted up Thompson , and discovered him lounging near the depot. He in formed the young man that the Gorman had accused him of stealing $10 from him. "It'aad lie" roared Thompson , "I only took $20. " "No , sir , yon took 10" replied the oillccr ( irmly. "Well , show mo the man and I'll give him back his ? 40 , " said thu young man weakening. But neither Green nor Ser- vatius were so easily satisliod and Thompson was taken up to jail where a charge of grand larceny was booked ngainst him. Ho returned the money , and was giv en thirty day's in Jail. In conversation with a reporter to-day , Thompson denied haying stolen the Ger man's money. When a cjucry was put to him "why did you offer to return the $10 if you ha'd not stolen it ? " lie sullenly.re plied "I'd 'a given him $1-10 rather than be locked up in jail. " SMJGGKD FUOSI BEHIND And Itobbcd or Ninety Dollars of 'Irust Funds. Thursday four voting men named Willis anil William Grant , William Burnley and Hoiiry Minor arrived in the city from Stella , Nob. They were on their way to Wallace , Montana , where the wife of ono of them , Win. Grant , had preceded him. They remained in the city and took in the sights , each pending a little money m drink , and trying to lind enjoyment among now ac quaintances. About 11 o'clock each had made up his mind as to where ho was going to" stop for the night , and started in that direction. Before the parting occurred , however , Willis Grant took Miner aside and gave him $90 , which lie said ho wanlccl the latter to keep for him until morning. ITo was go ing to spend the night where it might not bo safe to carry so much money. Minor accepted the trust , put the wallet con taining tlio money in his pocket , and then all went different ways. They had left their trunks at the depot , and agreed to _ incet there yesterday and continue ! on their journey. They did meet , but Miner presented a cut lip the blood from which was yet upon his mustache. Tlio pocketbook - book lip hud accepted in trust was gone , and with it Grant's $ ! ) ( ) . This morning ho woke up in the city fail and was brought before Judge .Stonborg , by whom ho was discharged. Upon being dismissed , ho was handed an envelope. Opening it. was found a jack knife. That was all ho had on his person when ho was arrested by OlHeer Hayes. From the time of his waking until the time of his leaving Grant , ho has recol lection of ono event and that was being nluggcd from behind and in trout by a couple of colored men. Ho .supposes they took his money and got oil' with it , but ho coulu not identify them , neither can ho toll where the slugging occurred. Olllcer Ilu/o found him in an insensible condition and took him to the jail. "It's just my luck , " said one of the Grants to a Uir. : man yesterday after noon. "I started to go west three years nco and my wito ran away with another follow and took nil my money. Last , year I got ready , to go but tlio follow who owed mo the required money skipped out \ und left mo in the lurch. This tiimi I : thought I would got away sure , and here I am without n cent the first day out. Some people are born unlucky any way , I guess , " Ono of the Grants returned to Stella last evening to procure funds to enable ihem to proceed on their journey west- Ward. _ _ _ _ _ _ WEIMM30 , YKT NO WIFI3. \ Strange Marriuco InVlilcli a JHotlier'a OlUccciou is lls- regarded. They have known cacli other for some time , and during a considerable part of ' that time they have been in love During n lessor period of their acquaintance they have fondly and mysteriously whis pered to themselves and friends that they \yoroongaged. Ami now , th eemphatlo nnnoucomont must ba undo to the Id1"- \yorld that they are man ami wife. The lady in the case lives in what might bo termed thn Sherman Ave , , division. She is about twenty years of ago , pretty , intelligent , rellneu and popular. Ho well , lie satisfied tlio lady's ideal , even if ho could not n discriminating critic or a most fastidious mother. " The attachment uul courtship of this couple have not boon attended wun all tie | pleasure peculiar to Mich undertak ings. There has been n dissatisfied mother of the inamorata , wlio had Violently opposed her daughter's do- eotlon to the young man. As the courtship became more and more ar- lent , the unther more and more ondcav- pied to discourage the daughter , but without much success. The opposition llnnlly became so persistent and energet ic that the young man's calls at the house wore less frequent , though his meetings , with the Iti'dyclE'Jwliero wore correspond- i Jiictv increased. Tlio motlrcr's hostility to his union with her daughter had never baon expressed by her to tlio young man , ( hongh ho was con siderately admonished of it by the daughter. So far from oclranginjj the young folks , the maternal aversion . rather iutusUlod their devotion. From ' tlnio"to time social parties were given at the lady's house , and on thc.su occasions only would the young .man IIKIKU his ap- ' Bpnranco ami-then on invitation of Ills Jove. ' .Twoweeks' : ago the pair determined to bring the matter to a close by getting married , and last Monday night was to witness the happy event. A few friends who had been made aware of the young folks' 'relations , and who synintn/.od ) ! witli them in their trouble , wore invited to the house at 7:80 : o clock , to enable the groom- expectant to make his appearance with out danger of being confronted by tlio mother. All assembled , and suddenly the young man proposed that a theatre- party be formed and attend Manager IJoyd'fl benefit at the opera house. Only ono lady agreed to the proposal , by pre concerted arrangement , ami she and the young man and the bride-intending left the homo ostensibly for tlu theatre. Instead , however , they went to a justice of tlio peace and the two latter wcro married. Thov wanted to got married by n clergyman , but they know that that would lead to disclosures , and decided to defer the ministerial ceremony until the consent of tlio mother .should 1)0 ) secured. The party then returned home , and the marriage was formally announced to the mother , who im mediately left the parlor anil could not again be induced tore-enter. The friends wfio had assembled to reason with and induce her to accept the situation could therefore accomplish nothing. Groom and bride are still living apart , and the mother assorts that she will never recog nize the marriage. IlUIiTALiO IJIliI/.S ttONANZA. The Now W lid Wojt Hucli as Ho Is Now KvhlldtiiiK in St. Ioiil.s. George Canlicld and George Guy have returned from St. Louis , whore they attended tlio Initial perform ance of Unllulo Hill's Wild West. They report that the show never was given to a. more appreciative audience. Tlio at tendance applauded with tlio greatest en thusiasm , and it was an attendance which could applaud because it consisted of 40- , 000 people. The night audience num bered 5,000 people , which was not less demonstrative. Since that day perform ances have been given both in the after noon and evening with grand success. Further proof of tlio fact that the Wild West has been doing oxcdllontly in St. Louis may be found in tlio foljowing ex tract from a half column descriptive arti cle from the Republican of that city : There wore Si. OOO people at tlio Fair Grounds yesterday. They turned out to boo Bulliilo Bill's Wild West perform ance , and they saw the grandest exhibit of the exciting scones which character ise the extreme Western plains and the most complete representation of the in habitants Indians , buffaloes and cowboy - boy $ of that region that was over pre sented hero. There wore thrilling feats of cowboy daring , Indian cunning and marksman's skill enacted as representa tion of actual border occurrences. It was an exhibit of the skill of several of the most famous liyjng characters for traits that border life in the states dovcJopcs. But all this time tlio enthusiasm which the big crowd was ready to manifest when they thought the proper time had come was pent up. and remained pent HP until William F. Cody , upon -whom the task ot making popular an exhibition of Western life and western scenes was made to rest , and who promises to make such exhibitions lind favor , while lie is loft to act his part in a skillful way. When Mr. Cody rode up in front of whore Gen. Sherman and wife were seated the general rose and bowed to his old ac quaintance and friend. One of the most catching features of the performance was the exhibition of graceful and skillful handling of the rifle and revolver by a California girl , Miss Lillian Smith. She seldom missed a ball that was thrown , and the shooting was no less wonderful for accuracy than rapidity , and no more pleasing than either than for the magic ease and grace with which it was done. Another pretty exhibition of rilio shooting was made by Miss Anuio'Oakloy , in which she repeat edly broke two balls thrown at the same time , broke balls that wcro thrown be fore she had picked up her gun' , and after the ball was thrown turned around and broke it. Tlio report then enumerates a number of the excellent features of the show , and concludes : Among other pleasing features of the performance was an exhibition of horse manship and marksmanship by Buffalo Bill , exhibitions with the rope , jumping by the champion cowboy jumper , in which ho leaps over a horse 10 } hands high , and the Indian war dance. GOOD AVOUK. A Monthly Report of the "Woman's Christian Association. During the month of April the work in the home was loss than usual , although at one time thcie wcro eighteen women and children. Over twenty-live during the month have boon m the home , work found for some , and others sent on their way ; none remained more than a few days , some only a night , Four lost children have been brought to us and cared for until their parents came for them. A mother with four small children came from Scotland and failed to meet her husband on the day planned and she remained a few days only when her hus band was found. Another woman and child remained but ono night when her husband was found for her and all taken from the homo. Could the people of this city realize how much this association needs a larger home , I am sure a lot would soon bo found and tlio building erected. So many ladies traveling wither or without children prefer coming to Homo than going to a hotel. Alter wo are asked to take children from homes of sin and wickedness and train them for lives of usefulness ; but our hands are tied ; wo have no homo- no room for them. Donations wore received during the month , as follows : Children's clothing MM. Crolgh , Mrs. Bounor ; clothing from .Mrs. Hartman and Mrs. McCarthy ; provibions , Mrs. Dr. Morriam. A prayer meeting is hold at tlio homo every Sunday afternoon at Si 10 o'clock , and all the poor women and children who have received help are invited to conio. ComtusroNiuxa SECUCTAIIV. "Italian John. " The sight of an Italian truit yonder , on his knees in the mud praying to a police olllcor to release him , was the attraction which brought together a crowd of men and boys near the county jail yesterday The "dago" was Italian John , otherwise known as John Mauua , who had been arrested as a lunatic by the po- llco. UpDii examination yesterday Judge Stonborg thought him a worthy subject for the insuno asylum , and com mitted him to the 'county jail to await examination by the insanity board. On the way up John fell to praying , and dropping on his knees delivered Inmsolt of earnest supplications for his liberty. But the ollleer was obdurate , and turned , him over to Jailor Joe Miller. Thu Italian was confined once before for insanity , but was released. Ho has had \n\\i \ \ stawl near the corner of Fif- tooutli andFmuuuUu'H''oiu his queer and oftentimes dangerous antics hr.

"About the narrowest squeeze I ever had In tlio course of my profession hap pened to mo while tracing down a gang of counterfeiters in Chicago two or three years ago , " commenced a noted eastern detective , who was In the city last week on a visit , in answer to a reporter's re quest for a "yarn. " "This is what saved my life and repu tation as well ns aiding In capturing my men , " ho continued , handing the scribe a peculiar looking contrivance resemb ling a cigar case in some respects. "This is a pocket telegraph sounder , and is used quite extensively by members of tlio secret service in warning each other in case of danger or when neces sary to Impart information. "Sec , " pressing the sides and producing a clicking sound , "it sounds like a tele graph instrument in .1 distant room. 1 took a thorough course in telegraphy when 1 was young and have found it of great benefit to mo in my profession. With this thing two of us who under stand the system can carry on a conver sation and never appear to know ono an other. Getting impatient , are you ? Well , as my yarn hangs on my "secret ticker , " I thought it best to describe its use before elnlig the story. "It was during just such weather as this , " continued the detective "when I wan summoned from an important case in some southern town to undertake the highly lucrative ( if successful ) case or ferreting out tills band of criminals. They had given the local authorities no little trouble and tlio case was getting "cold" when I took a hand. It is useless to worry you with a tale of vexatious disau- pointmeuts in getting their trail sulHcient to say that at least 1 struck one that led into interesting quarters , and amongja set of criminals who were hard to handle. To get conclusive evidence it was neces sary for mo to visit a certain dive in an unsavory quarter , and resort to some de tective tactics not necessary to mention now. I was disguised as a sport , and'I tell you it made mo feel chilly when I thought of the possibility of beingdiseov- oral in my character , as I descended into the room where the leaders ot the counterfeiters' band wore wont to congregate , for some of them know me by name. 1 had carelessly made no provision for. police within call , not thinking I would corner my men that night. I was soon mixed up in some game , playing with a crowd ol men , none ot whom would scruple at taking human life , and among whom a betrayal of my identity meant almost certain death. In entering the room-1 had noticed something familiar in ( lie appearance of one of the waiters , but did not give it muoli thought , so deeply engrossed was 1 with other things. Plenty of whisky had been Mowing , and the men wore getting hilarious. See ing their condition , i thought it best to depart , and had made steps toward doing so , when a hand was laid on my shoulder and a voice , ucrfectly steady , said : 'Hold on cully , don't ' bo so fast ! I know you , please sit down. ' Turning , I perceived a member O4f the company until now slightly noticed oy mo , but who , on closer inspection , proved to be a noted and desperate criminal. I sat down more from weakness than in com pliance with his sarcastic request. Ho arose and told the others who 1 was. what I was , and what 1 wanted , and wound up bv requesting a suggestion ns to how I should be disnoscd of. Throats of all kinds , were made , most of the men being in favor of killing me on the spot. " 1 sat thinking deeply when suddenly a clicking sound startled me. I almost jumped from my chair with joy. Ouo'of our men was in the room in some disguise and had recognized me and was now let ting mo know of his presence. We kept conversing until 1 learned that he was the waiter whom I first failed to recog nize. A plan was formed on the spot that ho should slip out and raid the con cern with the police. Well , in an hour the entire gang was under lock and key , and wo had earned the heavy reward of fered by the authorities , "iou can _ de pend upon it that over since that episode I have congratulated myself that I understood telegraphy. " He Saw tlio Elephant. William Mantel is the name of a gentle man from York , Neb. William had heard something of the Omaha "ele phant" and was curious to see it , and , perchance , to pull its tail a triflo. He came with $83 in his pocket , landing hero Thursday morning. Thursday ho was piched up dead drunk in an alley , with all of his possessions missing except an old jack-knife. " 1 can give you the knife , judge , " said William , scratching his head reflectively , as the judge asked him wliorowitli ho ex- pooted to pay his fine for intoxication. "No , sir ; that won't do , " replied Judge S ton berg , as ho entered upon an order for the man's release , "this court is not a second hand store. However , I'll lot yon go , provided you will promise to leave town at once. You will ? Well , then , go ! " _ _ _ _ 1'ostofllco Trouble. Mrs. Susan A. U.

General Passenger Agent Morsu , of the Union Pacific , is in Chicago. The Kansas Central branch of the Union Paoilio has "recovered" from several - oral serious injuries received at the hands of the tornado , and is open for business as usual.

A reporter for the HBK was on Wed nesday permitted to witness an interest ing surgeon operation , performed at the Omaha Medical & Surgical Institute , on the corner of Thirteenth street and Capitol tel avenue. It was nothing loss than the removal of an ugly malignant tumor , covering nearly the entire lower jaw. The patient , who was Rev. J. E. Mitchell , a Methodist clergyman of Gorinantown , Neb , was put under the influence of chloroform , and then with a few quick and skillful movements of the knife tlio tti mor was removed. The operation which required less than twenty minutes was performed by Dr. McMonamy , assisted by Drs. Coo and Spalding. The patient is now resting easily with every prospect of a rapid re covery. The operation was an essentially dan gerous one , because the blood vessels of the neck wcro involved , but was so well performed that none but good results can eomo from it. Mr. Mitchell is to bo con gratulated on liavjng given his critical cnso into such competent hands. Wnenyou como to Lincoln , stop at the Commercial Hotel , if you want homo oomforts. C. W.
