8 THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : . TTJESDAY , JANUARY 25. 1887.
GATHERED FROM THE CITY , Aii Interesting Cocking Main Yesterday Afternoont AN UNFORTUNATE COUPLE. Traffic Mnnngcr Klmlmll On the Cut * lotn lllll Failure of n Clothing Finn Sleeping Car ICntcs Promenade Concert. Sunday Sport. A quiet cocking innin took plnco Sun day afternoon iit a well known resort in the western suburbs of the city , A number of good biufk were pitted mill an ntturnoon of rare sport was enjoyed by tlio thirty or forty congenial spirits which were K.itliorcd tliero. The pit was in tlio front room of n small building boniK marked out by a width of canvas stretched in a circle around iron pins braced in the lloor. The first match was between a black- red and a white bird. The latter was under great disadvantage , both in weight and science , though ho appeared to poa- SCHS a fair amount of pluck. During the lirst few moments ho made several sav age "llys" at his opponent , ami succeeded in gashing Ms head severely. Several times ho knocked him down , but each time he fulled to take the opportunity to drive his steel spurs through thu other bird's head. The black- rod on the other hand look cvury chance to use his spurs and made several savage attacks. At the end of ten minutes the white bird's head was badly mangled and covered with blood , and tliouirh the other cock was also severely cut , he was still "gamoy" and ready to light. Kinally thu white backed down and refused to liirlit nny more. Several times las handler urged him on , but each time he hung his head and positively refused to enter into further combat , lie was finally taken out of the pit , the other bird being declared the winner. Very little money changed hands on the event , : is it was evident from tliu start that thu black red had thu best of it. The next fight was between a big red pylo and a small "stag. " The agreement was that the red pylo was to Kill two "stags , " one after the other. His lirst op ponent was a very small bird , which in consideration of its inferior size was al lowed spurs of double length , The two cocks were thrown together by the hand lers anil the result was a complete surprise to all. The big bird made a sav age fly at his opponent and was met sav agely with a thrust , which though vicious , missed its mark. The two birds then searatcd , glared savagely at each other and made another lly. This time the big bird Hew over the other ono and in lighting on the lloor broke his leg , which had boon injured in a previous contest. Ho rolled over on his back and continued to kick at his small antagonist. Thu latter quickly disposed of the broken-logged hero by two sharp thrusts , driving the stcul spurs clear through his head both * times. So that the "big'in1' so tar from killing the two small birds , was "laid out" himself by the lirst of his opponents. The main was closed by a short and sharp contest between two black and red Blags , in which the smaller ot the two was ingioriously defeated. DESTITUTE IN DID ED. A Young Couple and Their Story of Misfortune , Friday morning a young couple with an infant child applied to Secretary Joplin - lin , of the Young Mens' Christuin asso ciation for aid. They seemed to bo desti tute , and the secretary gave thun an order on the Buckingham. The ladies of the homo interested themselves in the matter and did all they could for the un fortunate family. There was a mystery surrounding the affair. The clothing worn by the parents and the babe was of finer quality than that usually tound on people lu a like condition. Upon inquiry it was developed that there was some thing of a story connected with thcirvisit hero. The lady told the story how she had married against the wishes of her parents. Her home was in Minnesota , and her parents were rich. They had chosen a wealthy husband for her , but she had sot her alleetions upon another. Her choice happened to rest upon a railroad man whoso income did not exceed § 75 per month , a mere pittance in the ayes of her father and mother. At any rate shu braved the wrath of her parents and married him. They went to California. Ho , having a little spare money , took an interest in a patent article of some sort. It proved n disastrous investment for him. After meeting with iailuro and dis couragement on all sides , the conplu started back to Minnesota. Jiotivuon hero and California the babe was born on the train. Shortly afterwards the mother was taken so ill that they were compelled to stop oft' iu a town in this state. During thu live or six months thu mother was confined to her bed. Their supply of money was exhausted , but for tunately tliuy were among people who did all In their power to help them. They arrived in Umaha with no clothing save what they had on. The rest had been pawned. Upon learning the circumstances thu ladies of the Buck ingham ottered to furnish transportation for the lady , and Air. Nash , of thu Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul , agreed to ito thu hamo for the man , and send thorn to their parents. Thereupon the lady earnestly bogged that > > ho might bo allowi-d to remain heru. Shu would do anything riruicr than face her father and mother again , Her husband has smnirod a position in thu city , and through the Buckingham ladies' assistance the wifu is now stopping in a private family , where she will receive the best of atten tion. LONG'S They nro not Strongly lu Fftvor of the JlcportoCtlio Sanitary Committee. K , K , Long , of the school board , was yes terday morning asked by a HKK reporter what the board of education would do with the report of thu committee on sanl tation recently published in thesu col. limns. "W u will give it" ho said , "somo attention , I suppose , bccauso , if the com- milieu had not been appointed and re ported , you ropoiters would not have so much to do , I had nothing to do with the appointment of the committee , though I suppose the report of the committee nuiy bo product ive of 6omo good. We will , ( ironically ) Isnpposu , now commence in the north ern part of the city and tear down all the sehocls , to the southern limits , to get structures which will satisfy this committee. To n .siir.iu that there is not onu class room in the schools of this city which is prop erly ventilated is the greatest kind of humbug. Dr. Parker was on that com mittee , utitl booauso ho failed of renomi- nation to the board , ho has seized this opportunity to vent his sjileeu against thu board , and rot wlieji lie jvas a mem ber of our body , he htul something to do with erecting soulu of those buildings. Tliero was an architect on thu committee ttiid his recommendation was that thy board should appoint an architect to Io6k after the erection of Its buildings. ' ' "Well , there is Jenkins , " said the re porter , "what about him } " "He is boiler inspector , " said Mr. Long , "and he recommended that the furnaces bo thrown out and the schools \i \ heated by steam. That would require boilers and would give him so many more boilers to inspect. TOO MUCH COMPETITION. The Failure of Wllllnni Nelson , Cloth ing Merchant. William Nelson , the clothing merchant doing business at 1012 I'arnam street , yes- day made an assignment of his stock to Sheriff Coburn for the benefit of credit ors. The liabilities of the linn arc placed at $8,000 , which amount Is about covered by the assets. Mr Nelson's hcavirst creditors are Kuppcnmoycr & C. , of Chicago cage , to whom no owes about iJ,000. ! Small claims against him are also held by clothing jobbers in St. Louis , Rochester , Detroit , ( iraml Island. Mich. , and Cedar Hapids , la. Mr. Ncf on has been in business in Omaha for several years and is considered a vety reliable , straightfor ward business man. His failure is at tributed to his inability to meet the com petition and low prices that have marked the clothing trade during the past season. Kotiirncd I loin P. Dr. S. J. Chambers. Omaha's favorite veterinarian , and wife returned Sunday evening from a Hying visit to old Kug- land. They left this city December lit , and the actual lime consumed in land and water travel was twenty days ami twelve hours , an avcrago of twenty miles an hour. They sailed on the Umbria and returned on the same stnamcr. Dr. and Mrs. Chambers wont to Bromyard , Here fordshire , Kngland , the former's birth place. Ho loft there eighteen years ago a young stripling and when ho returned an extra heavy weight thn townsfolk looked upon him as a curiosity. Kvi- dcutly they got a good opinion of the climate and provender of Nebraska , for Doctor Chambers is a pretty healthy specimen. "My , ain't ho a whopperl" was the expression that greeted the American everywhere. Doctor Cham bers wishes it distinctly understood that he is a thorough Yankee now. This last trip home has knocked all the English ideas out of him , A MystcrloiiH Couple. Last Saturday night a young man and woman rented a room in Mrs. Glisho'a house on the corner of Fourteenth and Jackson streets. They pretended to bo husband and wife. Sunday it was dis covered that they wcru not entitled to bear either of those titles , by a conversa tion which was overheard in which thu man importuned the female to marry him. but without success. They were ac cordingly driven from the houso. Later the woman sought possession of a trunk , which was refused by Mrs. Glisho because it had been brought to licr house by the man. The girl then , under the name of Ilattio Hall , rcplcvincd tliu trunk and Constable King secured it anil con tents , but is holding it subject to later de velopments. It is thought the couple arc u runaway pair from Fremont. The Coon-Skin Man. Detective Moynlhan has received a let ter from Chief Detective Hankmson , of Minneapolis , stating that Werner , the conlidenco fraud , who caught Peter Gees , of this city , napping a few days ago , left that city for this place , but the' ' only thing ho secured there wnsthc coonskin - skin coat in which ho appeared like a polar bear when walking around the streets of Omaha. He went from this city to Cincinnati , whom ho is known to have worked a firm out of $ 1GO. The fol low seems to have a great deal of gall , but will doubtless be caught before many days. _ _ Thn Elks' Hall. The Elks' ball , which is to take place on the seventh of February next , promises to be the most select and enjoyable affair of the kind ever known hero. The num ber of tickets has been limited to 200 , so that there will not bo a jam , and especial euro will bo taken to admit only persons of irreproachable charactor. The entire first lloor of the Millard will be given up to the entertainment. It is probable that thu new addition to the dining room will be ready in time to bo used , in which event the dancing area will bo a magnifi cent ono. The IMnttsinniitli . Ed Hothcry , Archie Hothery and Cap tain O'Malloy , went to Plattsmoiith , Sat urday night to attend Paddy Norton's bcnclit. They were delayed until the latest train and the entertainment was postponed until their arrival. There was a largo attendance and several boxing bouts took place , the most notable being these between Kd Miller and Archiu Kothory , botli of whom sparred at dill'ur- cnt times with Norton. Paddy's receipts , however , it is expected , will about sullico to pay the expenses of the undertak ing. _ Police IMckingH. II. C. Nell came in from Iowa last night ano put up at the City hotel. Ho dropped his key in the hull and adopted the plan of kicking the door down to effect an entrance. Ho was arrested on the charge of malicious destruction of proportv. Mike Kelley , an old time offender , was arrested last night charged with the larceny of an overcoat from u colored man on Ninth street.

Ths condition of Signal Swir..i Officer Pollock , yesterday morning , was consid ered more critieal than it had been for several days back , ami it was feared that the chanced of recovery were u ruutt him , THE CUMiOM BILK AYh.it a nallroatl Mnu Hns to S y About It. Traffic Manager Thomas L. Klmball , of the Union Pacific , who has just re turned from the Colorado pool meeting in Chicago , said yesterday to a reporter that the inter-state pools , which would bo doiio away with by the Cullom bill , would remain In existence for the next si\ty years , At the expiration of that time the bill would become a law. "What do you think of the bill ? " was asked of him. "J think , " ho replied , "that it is a good one in the main. Some of its provisions I am heartily in favor of. Its successful working all depends upon whether the commission which is deputed to carry it properly recognize the duties which rest upon them whether they adjust the pro visions of the law to circumstances. For instance , a provision which might bo properly and equit ably enforced In ono case would work a grovlous hardship in another. "Tako that clause which provides in general that the charge for a short haul shall not bo greater than that for a long one. In some eases that will work very well. In other instances it will not. Take for example the long haul between New York and San Francisco. The sailing vessels , let us suppose , can carry freight from New York to San Fraueiseo for say TJ cents a hundred. Jl is easier to get up wind than it is to cot up htoiini , and tliu vessel can afford to maku a lower rate than would bo really profitable to the railroad. But Id us suppose that the railroad to meet competition puts its rate at the same figure. Tlieru is very little or no money in such business , but wo will suppose that that rate is made. Now take a point midway between New York and Fsisco. According to the strict ap plication of the clause I refer to the rate from that point to Now York would have to bo much lower than the rate to Frisco. But to transfer the freight from New York to that point by water would make a rate of ? . "i cents plus the rate from San Francisco to the inland noint , which , let us suppose , is fiO cento. This would make the water rate $1.35 per hundred , while the railroad rate would bo something less than To cents. This of course would bo highly unprofitable for the railroad. "There is ono thing very evident. " ho concluded , "and that is that ii thu short haul rates are gauged by thu long haul scalu. long haul rates must bo forced up to make business at all profitable. In the casu of the Union Pacific 10 per cent of its business is Pacific coast trallic , which is done at low rates in order to compete with the water routes. If the HO per cent balance of business with intermediate - mediate points lias to bo scaled to suit the rate to the Pacific coast it will , as you can easily see , almost totally destroy the prof its of our trallic. " SLiEEI'INO OAR KATES. Change li\ Scat Unto ? A Pullman Olllcinl Talks. Among thu bills introduced in the leg islature is one the object of which is to compel Pullman car companies to charge not moru than $1 a berth in carrying pas sengers in the state of Nebraska , Al most simultaneously with the introduc tion of the measure the Pullman com pany made a sweeping reduction in scat rates between Omaha and Ogden , but no change m the charge for berths. For merly the scat rate from Omaha to Fremont was CO cents. The present rate to Columbus and Schuyler is now 50 cents , reduced from thu former prices of 75 cents and 70 cents respectively. Other changes in rates between hero and Ogclen are in about the same proportion. In speaking of the matter to a Bni : man last evening , Mr. Patterson , of the Pullman company , said : "Tho bill in reference to the charge for berths intro duced in the legislature is a mcasuro which aught not to and probably will not pass. The company could not possibly afford to sell berths for if 1 , as that would bo equivalent to giving a bed for 50 cents as frequently two passengers occupy a berth. Taking into consideration that the linen lias to bu changed every day and other troubles and ex penses , it would bo a losing transaction. The public , too , would feel the bad effects of the law , as no decent accommodations and comforts could bo obtained for the money. The company c.in , however , and has made a reduction in its scat rates , and as far as I can see the public has no reason to complain of extravagant charges by the company. " "We are trying , " continued Mr. Pallor- son , "to give thn public the very best accommodations we can. We have now six row cars in course of construction in thu shops in Chicago for use on the Union Pacific. They will bu ready to run in about a month , and are finer than any sleeping cars that have ever been on the line of the Union Pacific road. All the latest improvements have been added , wo have spared no expense to have them elegantly lilted. There are already thirty cars now running on this line. At present four of thesu cars are in thn .shops in Omaha being repaired and improved. High backs and extension head rusts are being put in , and when thu nuw cars arrive wu expect that the Union Pacific will bu equipped with as line sleeping car accommodations as any line in thu coun try. " The porters' fees will remain un changed. _ THE I'UOMENADE COXCKIiT.

"Fanehon" was produced last night at the People's theatre before a large aud ience , with Miss ticorgle Oilman in the title role. It was the first appearance of the lady in this city , and it may be said that thu impression created by her was a very favorable ore indeed , bho is young and pretty , and whilu her rendition of thttcharaetor mentioned lacks the weird- ncs ? and intensity of that of others of more mature ycara who have essayed , it is invested witli the charmuess , natural- ucss of girlhood , which is oven moru grateful than th sUsljed and acquired ihgeniousncss which uro'sO familiar to all theatre-goers. Thu ladies of the company ' are'ulso young and pretty , a'ud uct well. All the gentlemen acted well , especially J. W. Goodwin ns handry , and Harry I-angdon as Didier Bnrtcau , the latter making ono of the most successful im personators of that character who have appeared here. To-night "Carrotts" will bo played. Intcrc tlne Items From the HapliUy Growlnciowti of Kftlrbiiry. FAituit ; itv , Neb. , Jan. 22. [ Correspond ence of the BIK. : ] Having returned from Lincoln and had n good night's sleep , your correspondent feels much bettor after the defeat. Though con quered wo know that our cause was just , The fight was between the railroads and the people , and though the cause of the people was temporarily defeated wo hopu they will not lese heart. I am a republi can of the staunchcst kind when party principles are at issue , and feel that in hoping anil working for Van Wyck's election I lost not ono jot or tittle of my republicanism , 1 will give you some statistics regard ing our beautiful little city that may in terest your readers and introduce us to jlieni. We havu a population between 3,500 and 9,000 , and are growing very rapidly. Since the commencement of work on the Chicago , Hock Island , A Pacific , or , as it is known hero , the Chicago , Kansas & Nebraska rail road wu have had a wonderful boom , Fully ono third has been added to our population , wealth and business not esti mating the increased valuation of real estate. The last six months havu added to us two banks , making four in all. an extension of the iron foundry , which is now prepared to cast store fronts and other largo work , two cigar factories and quitu a number of merchandise and oilier largo business enterprises. Wo now have IM manufacturing and mcicli- undisu establishments and the number is almost daily being added to. The valu- tion of property in the city is at least $ lG35-li.)0 ! ) , calculation being based on the assessment of 1885. The railroad business further shows our importance. For the year 1880 the St. Joe & Grand Island have shipped from hero 1)50 ) car loads of grain , stock , llour , etc , , and 3'J 7,400 pounds in less than car lots and have received 1818 cars and 0U7,3GO ! pounds in less than car loads , and have received therefor $109,003.23 and for passenger business $11 , 814.45 , a total of $12i,8 ; .C3 an increase over 1885 of $38i > 95.10. The new railroad the Chicago , Kansas & Nebraska have cxpper.dcd for right of way throvgh the city $31,1)33 ) , for ground for round-houso and division buildings $15,000 , and for construction purposes , including build ings. $3 1,000 , a total of ? UOUs2. Added to the cost ot buildings erected in the city in 1880 , which is $01,000 , we have a total of $155,51)3 ) , In fact we are well fixed for everything but hotels , and wo havu live or six ot them , but we need and must have one more commensurate with our advancement. There is a rich bonanza in this if some man with the money anil enterprise requisite would take hold of it. I am giving you no buncomb on the statistics , for tho.v arc correct and taken from the report of the board of trade of Fairbury , collected with much care and , as I believe , not exaggerated. I am truly satisfied that several of our politicians had a hand in making Pad dock senator , and Jo. MeD. especially the senator is under obligations , lie will surely do something for Fairbury. Sixth " \Varrt Ijaw nnil Order. The Law and Order league of the Sixtli ward met at the Stiuudors Street Presby terian church last night. The league has for its object the enforcement of the city laws in the Sixth ward. The question of Tony llcrrold's saloon , which has been started in face of the protest of a great many residents of the ward was dis cussed. As the case is now in the court it was decided to take no further action at present. After some discussion of matters interesting only to the. members of the order tbe meeting adjourned sub ject to the call of the chairman. Ho AValkciI From Snii Francisco.
