GATHERED FROM THE CITY , A Big Purchase of Land by Armour Soma- thing About Ilia Flans , AN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. Jlp Pelt Had HccntiBO Ills AVI PC ( Jot Drunk Heal Hslnto Kevlow Kljr- In Don Cnrts Tlic Cftblo ltoad-I2tc. Notes on "the Iloom. " The Hr.u lins already contained Iho Information tlutt Armour , the big Chicago cage packer , hntl purchased laud In tlio vicinity of the stock yards. The an nouncement was made upon good au thority , and it lias since buon corrobor ated. The land purchased lies to the eouth of the stock yards and cast of tlio truck II comprises some of the most servicablo and available land In that part of thu county , and may , with little ililll- cnlly , IK ; ulili/oil for thu no- comm dilution of both packing houses and stock yards. Thu liuid has been owned Mrs. Miller , resid ing near the transfer til tlio Bluffs , and comprised 1SJO acres which she sold at lliu rate of $200 per ucre. Tliu fact that such a man as Armour , with his exf-it- slvc experience largo oucnitiootis and crcat cuti'rpriscs coming to Unmha , shows that he , too has begun to ruali/.c , with the others' who have preceded liim Unit this pla cj ( may justlylay claim to all that has bee 11 said of Itas a packing and shipping point. Indued , it is now hinted that. buforu long , Mr. Armour will give greater evidence of his appreciation by erecting hero the largest packing house in this nart of theo uiitry , and In connection with stock yards of ample dimensions , which shall be inde pendent of those already owned by the stotk yards company. The South Omaha land syndicate , at its last meeting , hold forty-eight acres to the stockyards company at a price aver aging six hundred dollars per acre. This land is situated immediately north of the exchange building , and runs up into tlio orchard at that place. It was bought because the company see that , before long , the land belonging to them in the vicinity would not be equal to the requirements. There is a very Important deal now being considered in this city , or rather by iv syndicate of foreign capitalists , to whom an option has been given until the first of August. The proposition is from tbo South Omaha l..anl syndicate to sell ijl Jts property , south of the oily , to the foreigners mentioned , comprising about ftcon hundred acres , at an advance tipon the original coat and improve ments , of about two hundred per cent. The intent of the foreigners is to develop the land in question by encouraging manufactures , and their answer will be given on the tlrst of next month. IlEAlj ESTATE IUHINESS. Oinnlia'H Dealings In Dirt Par Jjast Wools. The past week was ono of great hcat.andouoof more or less stagnation in airlines of business. The heat was such as to encourage people to remain at liomc , and , as a consequence , has had n depressing ( fleet upon the trade in real cstato. And yet some of the oflicos did a most satisfactory business. Oth ers have experienced a dullness more than ysuatly severe , but their owners seem to have no fear of future activity. A short time ago , the great rage for investment in this city was confined to pcoplo who depended in the main for their support upon thojr weekly or monthly salaries. A goodly share of tbeso wore mortgaged to make thuir monthly .payments . upon the prouorly contracted for. Tlio lattdt was generally in the suburbs. As n consequence , there is not an outlying section of tie ) county within ( v ruums of six milas from the postofllcc whioh is not cut tip into additions and la- bpilcd wjtli nigh-sounding titles. Indeed , so numerous are those auditions that It is Sb\v a wqll-ljnown fact that the property BO platted optnprlscs more territory than fjoes the cl.y ( or Chicago. Of course , ills apparent to every person that it will re- nuiro ions of years to fill this tori itory \\jthpeoplo.andyottlio anticipated ap preciation in value of the property in question mainly depends upon the de mand which can be made only bylhoso to Whom it will act as a site for a homo or ii place of business. While the sale of outlying property has not been discon tinued , it is .yet not 80 enthusiastically carried on as booro. ( It its stead has como a desire for inside real cstato , not by those purchasers above mentioned , but by n class of individuals who have considerable moans 16 back thorn. Many of the latter are old And welt established citizens who are intent upon pullding or turning ever their purchase nt a handsome increase. There have boon overiil excellent sales of the kind last mentioned and in two of thorn , ono mnn cleared tnoro money than ho had previously cleared in twelve years. Out- eldo Investors continue to have conli- Jidenco in the city and almost dally out- Elders' names are mentioned as purchas ers iu our real estate transfers. Among tlicso.Is Mr. Amos , of Boston , who almost weekly adds to his wealth , present and prospective , by his purchases. It is not nt i\l \ ) doubted that before tlio close of the summer the building and slto of the Omaha Savings bank will have passed into his hiuids , AE mentioned In the Bnn somn time ago , thu building of the viaducts at Eleventh and Sixteenth streets has tended wonderfully to advance the value of prop erty lu the south. On both those streets owners have begun to ask exorbitant figures , especially now that the work of building tlio roadways lias been begun. To the south of this city seine of the most beautiful fesldonco property In the county is to bo found , and In this direc tion yet wilhbo found souio of our llnest residences and most beautiful of grounds. The movement now being made to extend - tend the city limits HO us to include this delightful part of the town will bo ono which will bo attended with a great deal of bonullt to the city. WJLI * HBGIN IN TWO WEEKS. Tlio Oaulo Line Company will Iluilrt Hoforo August. Saturday | ono of the leading stock holders of the cable line told a BCE re porter ( hut the company had not yet do- oldod upon what street it would build , although it had boon considering the ad visability of building upon ono of four streets. The amount of money oilorod by these thoroughfares was , ho claimed , jgstabout the same. They would decide 'vpfm the street to build insldo of two weeks , and fixty days attor oommencinjr work their line would bo completed and rendy for operation , The question of a bonus was not the onlv ouu which the n mpanr wafi considering with reference to foleounff a stroot. It was also inter- efctod in tab thoroughfare whioh prom- feed th $ most Dusmoss and most increase la population. The Fust Train.

"Tho train will bo put on July 25 , 1830 , if .something at present unforsecn does not prevent,1' said a Union I'.iollicofllcial to-day. "It will leave Omaha in the morning , taking the place of the over land , and will make the trip between Omaha and 'Frisco in sixty hours or less. " Instruction In Ilohcmlnn. The Hartmnn school during the sum mer vacation ii being used , as a place of instruction In tlioir own language , for BohtMiilan children ot that part of the city. Instruction is given bv Mr. Uoino- bier , under the auspices of the Bohemian school association. This society provides for tin- same kind of instruction on Sat urday and Sunday mornings , during other seasons of the year , but now much more is devoted to it because it can bo carried on without interfering with Iho other studies of the children. There are .sixty scholars in attendance and all of them are making most satisfactory pro gress. _ Attempted Suicide. Perry Morgan , a laboring man living on Jones street , between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets , was arrested at noon Saturday for attcmpted'suicldc. He had cut one of the arteries of his wrist with a razor. He was feeling despondent be cause his wife , with their little daughter , had gone out with two fast women last evening on u spree. She came homo Sat urday thoroughly intoxicated , and Morgan felt so bad about It that he de termined to leave tins world. He was taken to jail , wherp his wound was dressed. After hearing his story Judge Stenborg released him. Flying Don Cnrts. The dog cart driven by a number of boys in the city are as much to be feared by pedestrians as some of the much larger vehicles which are recklessly driven by adults. The youthful drivers , as a rule , seem oblivious of everything and everybody save the pleasure of Hy ing behind their little ponies. This morn ing this was emphasized by the knocking down of a child at the corner of Fifteenth and Douglas streets , and noUiiiig but the timely interference of a man saved the lad from being run over. In Important Decision. Judge Wakely Saturday decided the case ot llilcy vs. Mack. In 1883 these men had un agreement with regard to waving , which did not amount to a partnership. Ililoy withdrew from it with the understanding that ho would bo permitted to have one-third share in any contract Mack might get from the city. Mack afterwards refused to grant the share , and Riley brought suit to compel him. Judge Wakoloy'B decision was ad verse to Mr. Rlloy. Opolt'a Hotel , Lincoln * Nob. , opened March 15th , h'rst class in every respect. Correspondence. A letter from our Irish correspondent , Edward Harrington , dated March 0 , ' 80. arrived iu this onico Saturday. It smelted as if it had recently parted company with a deceased mackerel. It went down with the steamship Oregon March 14 and remained under water until July 4. C. II. Gllmore will learn something to his interest by communicating with- drawer No. 10 , Omaha , Nob. The Broken "Apron.

If not re placed soon , an accident to somebody may yet result. Personal Pnraurnpliu. Miss Alona Knyscr , who has been hero for some time , has gone homo to St. Peter , Minn. She was accompanied bv Miss Nolho Pritchard of this city. Mr. H. B. Irey , the real estate agent , has gone "for n pleasure trip through Canada , the Now England states and the south. Miss Shill , who has charge of the ladies' delivery window in the postolHco. has gone on a vacation of several weeks and her place is being tilled temporarily by Miss Brcarton. Master Frank J. Haskcll left last evening - ing for Creston , la. , to spend a couple of wcoks with ills friend , Master Frank Colby , who has boon visiting him for the past few days. Brevities. City Treasurer Duck says that the sa loon men are responding pretty satisfac torily with tlio second quarterly install ment of their license. The first story of the chamber of com merce is finished , and tlio lirsl brink wore laid on thu Farnaui street side Sat urday , The exterior will bo dark red brick , pressed hard and laid with great care. Nathan McGraw is the young man In the employ of C. J. Mentor , the livery man , who was kicked by a vicious horse ono week ago Saturday. It was thought that his injuries would prove fatal , but ho is on the high road to recovery. Ho will bo taken from the hospital to his homo tliis weak. Howard Grcon , the colored man who was arrested on complaint of James MoVoy for stealing n diamond ring , lias boon discharged in Judgollelsloy's court , as his innocence was conclusively proven , It was shown that the diamond nnir had not passed out of McVoy'd possession , and that Mr. Green had never lived in his house , as McYoy charged , and that furthermore ho ( Green ) had not boon in the room from whioh the diamond was alleged to have boon taken. Mr. Grcon fools that ho has boon greatly wronged in the matter , and has instructed his lawyer to sue Movoy for falsa imprisonment. Last fall the windows of a vacant house in Danbury , Conn. , wore broken by stones thrown at them. No ono could bu seen throwing the stones , and the windows dews were boardud up. The other day the boards wera removed , and at once the btone throwing began again. The News says that the btonos used are small , round , smooth pebbles , They are thrown with such velocity and precision that nffcu two or three go through the sariio hole in u pane of glass. The stones are thrown while people stnud talking , and they cannqt HOO them pass through the alv. It is presumed that they are lirod from a cun operated by compressed air , Those who have stood and watched the windows and suddenly hoard the break ing of the glass , without seeing the missile that did the mischief , are becom ing quite superstitious over the matter , Whitebreast nut coal , $3,75 per tou the cheapest ami best fuel.

"It cost them $800 and wo cot out free , " was tlio exultant remark whis pered in broken English into the capaci ous ear of n Bui : reporter by Greek George as ho leaned outof the window as the incoming Denver train pulled up at the Union Pacific depot yesterday evening , Ceorgo and Pierre arc the two Gneco- Roman wrestlers who were arrested in tliis city two weeks ago , charged with the larceny of-money irom Iho stake holder at Denver , where the two men had met in a match. They were taken to Denver and tried. Iho complainant wasa man named Gavlord.who was back ing Pierre. lie " alleged in court that the Greek won the match all right , but refused to turn his half of the winnings over as had been agreed. As the written agreement be tween Gaylord and George , which was exhibited in court , contained no such .stipulation , the case was dismissed. Greek George then commenced a damage - ago suit against Gaylord and Chase , the partners , and secured as a compromise all of the expenses from Omaha to Den ver and return to Chicago and a consid erable money consideration. The suit was consequently withdrawn. QTho Greek prow talkative and finally told the reporter the hippodrome facts of the Imatch botwnen Pierre and himself which led to their arrest. "I had an agreement , " said George , "with Gavlord that if ho could make a match of § 1,000 I would let Pierre throw me and we would divide the winnings. lie failed to do this , and when wo made the match for $250 n side , and I put up my own money. I threw tlio Frenchman anil took the stakes. The wrestlers left on last evening's train for Chicag6. Denver is all torn up just now over the arrest of Chase , Gaylord's partner , for drugging n miner in open daylight and robbing him of ? 10,000. The afmir has aroused great indignation and is likely to result very seriously for the robber. FUOM : cnAKiTAittjY DISPOSED.
