Judge IltiH'H Dcnth ,
At twenty-live minutes to eleven
o'clock yesterday occurred the
death of Judge I ) . G. Hull , it
prominent nnd well-known lawyer of
Omaha. His demise is surrounded by
circumstances of mystery which may
never be cleared tip. Certain it is tiiat
it was caused by tin overdose ot
opium taken sometime before six o'clock
yesterday morning ,
The immediate circninstances surround
ing the case are these :
Wednesday night Judge Hull returned
from Lincoln feeling as happy anil hale as
over after the hard session's work. Ho
retired ralhcr late ami spent a restless.
night. About two o'clock yesterday morn
ing he left his own room and went into that
of his wife , complaining of general rest
lessness and pains in his head. About
five o'clock yesterday morning when W.
C. Greuory , city editor of the He-
publican , who rooms in Judge
Hull's house came in , Iho judge was
slill awake , reading. He dialled pleasantly -
antly with Mr. Groeory a few moments.
In separating the judge asked a question
about the Klks order , of which ho was an
enthiisiaslic member. ' 'I'll be at the
session to-night , " he remarked , "and
I'll see you there. ' ' Those were Iho last
words ho over npoko , in all probability ,
to any one. Mr. Gregory then lefl him ,
little dreaming that ho would never see
him alive again. About six o'clock yes
terday mottling Mrs. Hull heard him
breathing heavily , and thought Ihat ho
must bo asleep. Ho was snoring loudly ,
but as this was his habil , nothing was
thought of the ninttcr. An hour or
two later , however , when she went to
call him to breaktast , she found him still
breathing heavily and a Hushed unnat
ural appearance on his face. Thinning
that something was wrong .she called in
MM. Ualch , a lady friend who rooms in
the house. Mrs. H. at once reeogni/.od
that Judge Hull was in a critical condi
tion. Dr. V. II. Cofltnnn was at once
sent for , but as in the meanwhile the
sick man grow worsn , Dr. Sprague who
was next door , was called in. Every-
tldne was done for the siillerer that
could possibly avail to save him. Whan
Dr. Co'flman arrived the sick man exhib
ited fully developed .symptoms of opium
poisoning , and was , it could easily
bo seen , dyine. Atropia and
cofleno , hvpodermically administered ,
with arlilicial respiration , wore used to
combat Hie cllVcts of the poison. Judge
Hull grew worse and worse , however , his
heart gradually failing.until dealh came
to hlrelief. . From the time that lie was
found up to the lime ho died , ho did not
speak a word or reeogni/.o any one.
auuo.uJSK OK DIATII. :
The immediate cause of his death , as
already staled , was an overdose of mor
phine , though exactly when or in what
( Itmnlity ho look it , no one c-an loll. For
years past at irregular intervals Judge
Hull has used opium and morphine to
quiet the neuralgic pains which ho
frequently suU'ored. And especially dur
ing the last three or four months , since
ho abandoned the use of alcoholic stimu
lants ho has used opium regularly. Mi.
Leslie , his druggist , says Ihat ho has fre
quently sold him McMunn's elixir of
opium or the deodorized tincluro of
opium. A half empty botllo of the latter
was found this morning on his dresser ,
and from tins , in all probability , he look
the fatal draught. A full dose of this is
about twenty-live drops , and Jtitlgo Hull
probably look a drachm or thereabouts.
, A friend who has known him since his
residence in Omaha > says that
ho has on several occasions
taken an overdose , but each time
the mistake was diseoveied in time to
save him. Sometimes ho would take Iho
opium diluted with water and at oilier
times undiluto.d. In this way ho got thu
1 proper quantilu-s confused in his mind.
Tito prevailing impression is that ho look
the ovet dose of morphine accidentally ,
though Dr. Sprague suggests that it may
huvo been a sudden attack of npoploxv.
Mrs. Hull , the bereaved widow , is ter
ribly prostralcd by Iho sudden blow.
She was intending lo leave last night for
JNbtro Dame , Indiana , where her little 12-
year old daughter , Maggie , a
bright nnd beautiful child , has
been atlonding school. Thu
latlor hns been lelegraphed of the sad
nfltilr and is expected lo arrive hero
to-night or Saturday morning.
' Judge Hull's relatives in IJinghamton
N. Y. , have been notified , and Iho limo
of holding the funeral will not be li.xed
until they are heard from ,
ins LIPK.
Dwigjit G. hull was born in Hingham-
. ton , N , Y. , January 0 , 181 ! ! , and was con
sequently forty-four years old tit the time
of his death. Ho graduated from the
Madison high school in 18(11 ( , ami then en
tered Yale college. The breaking out of
. the war altered his plans , however. In
1803 he enlisted in the United States
navy and was mustered out in 1805. The
lirst two years he was "bcforu the mast , "
nnd the balance of the limo in otlicial
f positions. Ho returned to Itinghamton

was orgnn/ed ! as such. Ho then returned
to New York city , and from there moved
to Nebraska in 1801) ) , locating in Lincoln ,

profession. In 1878 ho was appointed

j also agent for Iho Corbin ll.inkingcom-
patiy 01 Now York , and did a largo busi

Uncovering n Mystery Which I'lor-
nice Ofllclnls Do Not lleport.
William C. Thomas , a boatman , who
nukes a living by picking up drift wooden
on the Missouri rivcr.came Into town yes-
.onlay . and reported a rather pun ntionnl.
story. He f-ajs that on the lifth of Novem-
jer last when he was coming down the
river he found the dead body of a child in
a box which was securely wedged in a lot
of brushwood which had llontod Into the
river. This was at n point almost oppo
site Florence , and Mr. Thomas BUS-
icctlng that omo crime had been com-
nltled , hastened to inform one of the
numbers of the city council. The alder-
nanic father , for some reason or oilier ,
lid not deem it worth while to investi
gate the case , and so informed Thomas
that it was not necessary to
toffy the coroner. Ho promised ,
lowever. that the body should bo prompt-
y buried. Thomas , thinking that it was
lone of his business , went away satisfied.
lint the councilman never fulfilled his
jromisc. The dead body is still whore it
kvas four months ago. and is now in a
lorrible state of putrifaetion. Mr. Thom
as is highly indignant , and now sweats
that ho wishes he had informed the coron-
ir months ago so that the mystery could
iavo been investigated , lie says that the
reason the affair win never investigated
was that a full disclosure would have im-
ilicatetl certain parties prominent In
b'lorencc circles.
Thomas describes the body as that of a
lowly born infant , and is attired m plain
clothes. How long the body has been
there is a mystery.

They Make a llald but Secure
Durglars entered Mrs Allen's boarding
house on North Seventeenth opposite the
Dodge street Presbyterian church , early
yesterday moraine. They skirmished
through all the boarder's rooms
and tool : all the clothes out
into the hall and searched
them thoroughly. They secured but little
of any value. Mrs. Allan had a purse
containing $200 in her room , but luckily
it escaped the attention of the thieves. ,
General Wreck's house , at 1818 Douglas
was also entered by some burglarious
licnd early yesterday morning.
About 3 o'clock the general arose , when
he was surprised to find scrambling hast
ily out of the room. The follow ran
down stairs and jumped out of the front
window. He | { ot nothing.
Strny I/enves I'rom n Heportcr's Note
The acquittal ot Crosby Wednesday ,
who was on trial for perjury , ends , it is
believed , n long series of trials , iu con
nection with the principal event , the
death of Leslie , out of which the perjury
charge arose. The killing of young Leslie
by Powell brought about the trial of the
latlor. Ho was tried twice , the jury dis
agreeing both limes , and finally the case
was dismissed by the prosecution. There
was an affecting scene when Crosby and
: ho army of witnesses gathered in the
lobby outside Iho court room. The ton
women who had atlended as witnesses
were excited , the defendant's lady friends
jolng in tears. There was some bitter re
marks , and one lady was "mu//.led , " as
Iho school boys would say , by her lady
companion , who literally grabbed the
too talkative female's mouth , nose and
chin in her clinched list. "Say nothing , "
said them iscular peacemaker. There was
i pleasant feature , however , when a bevy
> f young women emerged from the com
missioners' ollleo with their vouchers for
? ( ! . ! ! ( > each in their hands , and.a merry
'litlle-maideus-are-wo" expression on
heir faces.
"No , sir , I never use bay rum on my
iair , " said a young man to a barber , who
was putting him "in trim" for a party the
other night. "I used to , " ho added sadly.
" \\hy don't you now ? " asked the
The young man grow communicative ,
as he lowered his voice' "I'll toll vou , "
10 said , "it's just like this. About a year
igo I was engaged to a young lady.
1 hough a mighty line girl in oilier re-
spcols , she was a crank on Iho subjccl of
temperance. One day she found out in
some way that I was a little fond of
iquor. Sne wanted mo to promise to
juit drinking at once and forever. Other-
.vise . , slui said , our engagement would
jo irretrievably broken , ahu would never
marry a man who might become a drunk-
ird. Of course I promised. And I did
quit drinking , \\ell , everything went
smoothly for a week or two until finally
: ny betrothed angrily accused me ot hav
ing broken my pledge to her. 'I haven't
lotichcd liquor since 1 promised you
: hat night , ' I said solemnly. 'I know
jeltor. she said , ' 1 can smell it on your
jreath.1 Well , hot , and hitler words
followed and in less lime than it lakes lo
lell it our engagement was broken. For
i week or two thereafter , I spout all my
time trying to decipher 'the mystery
which had separated mo from my be
trothed. One night while I was laving
my looks with bay rum 1 solved the -rid
dle. She had smelt the bay rum on my
iair. Why didn't I explain to her ? It
was too late she was engaged to some
other fellow. And that's why 1 never
ise bav rum. "
"That reminds tno , " said a man in the
icxt chair , "of how I acted very dishon
orably once. 1 was a youngster , anyway ,
nnd the matler involved Iho keeping of a
contract ; perhaps I could have been ex
cused by pleading the baby act. I was a
collegian , then , and a little addicled lo
wooing the wine when it was red. A
adv friend much older than I frequently
javo mo advice on the danger there was
n such kind of love , and finally gave mo
i valuable ring on condition that I would
lever take a drink while that jewel < ; lis-
ened on my little baso-ball _ maimed lin
ger. 1 accepted the ring and the coudi-
ions. The boys used to wonder , how
ever , why I always removed my ring be-
'ore responding to an invitation to im-
jibe. 'J echniciillv I kept my promise ,
jut it was a contemptible way of doinir
things , and I have always felt ashamed
of myself over sinco. "

"A good deal of complaint was made
ibout the way in which the crowds cn-
icriiig the exposition building were
Kindled on Patli night , " said Secretary
Miner the other day. "Everybody had a
way to suggest in which such a tremendous
deus jam could hayo been avoided.
Now the fact id that the blockade at the
door was largely duo to Iho carelessness
and inatteiilien of Iho people Ihenisolves.
A man would enter the turnstile , and in
stead of bavins his ticket ready , so that
the coupon could bo easily lorn off ,
ho would present it enclosed in
the envelope , necessitating , several
seconds' extra work for the the ticket
taker. Another , when a go tit Ionian oanni
in with two or three ladies , instead of
going in 'ahead himself and presenting
the Ticket ho would try to push the ladies
in lirst. The ticket taker of course
would inquire for their tickets and would
be told that the gentleman behind had
them. Of course the ladies would have
lo bo scut back to wait for their escort ,
and thus another delay was caused.
Ml thcso little things prevented Iho
crowd from passing in smoothly. If
these difficulties had been obviated there
would have been little or no cause for
complaint. "

J. J. Mahoney , .superintendent of the
county ! poorhouse , tells a good story on
himself. A day or two ago ho was called
to the city jail to take a sick man out lethe
the poorhouso. Just as he reached the
city jail a message came in from the poorhouse -
house to the effect that as one of the pa
tients had just died Mr. Mahoney had bet
ter bring a coffin back with him. The
superintendent lost no time in going to
Iho undertaking establishment ami or
dering a coffin of the proper dimensions.
Ho then went to the city jail to get the
sick man. Whoa the latlor was being
lifted into the wagon he spied the collln.
"Great Scott , " ho yelled , "are vou going
to kill mo after you get mo out there ? "
"Why , no. " replied Mr. Mahoney , "of
course not. "
"What's that coffin in there for , then ? "
"That's for of the the
one men at poorhouse -
house who died to-day , " answered Mr.
M. in his blandest tones.
"I know bettor , " whimpered the sick-
man. "You got that coffin for mo. I
think you might have waited for mo to
die before you gyt ready to bury mo. "
And the sick man grow morn violent
and positively refused to ride to the poor
house in Iho same wagon with the collin.
Ho Iried lo jump out and make his es
cape , but Mahouoy's strong arm re
strained him. ly ! sheer force ho was
compelled lo "take the ride over the hills
lo Iho poorhouso. "

"Yes , the Omaha mud is a terror , " re
marked an old timer yesterday. "Why
don't the tire laddies got out their hose
and wash the pavements at the same
time flushing the sowers. Now I live out
on Walnut Hill and thanks to our
city fathers I have the benefit of a side
walk on Cuming street until I reach the
city limits. Thence lo Lowe avenue , a
distance of about three good M/.ed blocks
the mud is perfectly hoirible. Just
think of a sea of mud pies of the con
stituency of molasses two feet deep on
an road elevated twentv feet on each
side of the adjacent land. If the county
commissioners would only engage a
man for one day nnd provide him
with a hoe ho could fix drains that
would soon make this slice of table land
dry : The owners of Iho properly DC-
twcon the city limits and Lowe avenue
on Cuming street represent a pile of
money , being Dr. Mercer , Hishop O'Con
nor , Guy C. TJarton , F. C. Nash and Mr.
Sherwood. It is certain they would
'chip-in' to have n two-plank sidewalk
built in the section named , whllo the
Walnut Hill people wouldI am sure , join
the contribution. A walk of that kind to
Lowe avenue and thence over to Hamil
ton avenue and Orchard Hill , and west
ward ou Cuuiiug street , or auy other
place on the Hill desired -wouldn't cost
much , and the benefit to residents
and visitors would jbe incalculable.
It was amusing , nd at the
same time suggestive ot shame to these
who have regard for th eternal fitness of
things to see Mr , Nash's coachman and
several other kind-hearted men picking
the lilllo Mercer and Uyan girls and
other attendants at the Content out of the
mud where Ihoy wore stuck yesterday. Ap
parently had not assistance come in time

personal observation instead of turning
over pages of geography. Who will be
