CincAno , April 13 , The Panhandle road has made the same rates on freight from rittsburg toKcokuk and Burlington as It makes to St. Louis. As the quarrel between the eastern and western lines has resulted in the abrogation of prorating and local rates are changed to and from Chicago , this re sults In all of the western business from Pitts- burg being diverted from Chicago. The Lk Shore road , which Is a competitor for rittsburg business , and only connects with Chicago lines , Is threatening retaliation against the Panhandle. The committee appointed by the-Western Passenger association to prepare a report re garding excursion rates submitted one to day. It directs that special rates shall be given to state fairs and large conventions and gatherings , such as Knights Templar , Odd Fellows and the Grand Army of the Ite- publlc. The association Is now considering whether these excursions shall be conducted on the old certificate plan or thrown open to the public on the date when the conventions ahall bo held. The members ot the Central Traffic associa tion passenger department continued in session to-dav revising their rules to fit the aew law. The differences of opinion on essential points were so marked , however , that but little progress was made. The Southern Pacific's Officers. BAN FIIAMCISCO , April 13.

The Meeting of the State Association In South Omaha Yesterday. A regular mooting of the Live Stock Shippers' association was hold at the stock exchange building , at South Omaha , yesterday afternoon. In the ab sence of H. B. Dibble , thu president of the association , First Vice President An derson occupied the chair. The live stock situation and the railroad rates were fully discussed , and one and all agreed that something must be done to remedy some of the existing abuses. J. G. Hall , Gibbon ; H. B. Miller , Wayne ; and A. W. Rathburn , David City , wore elected members of Iho association. The committee appointed at the last mooting to wait upon the stock yards conipany in reference to the condition of the yards and the manner of handling stock and upon the disposal of dead and cripple - plo hogs gave a very full report. They found the Stock Yards company willing to do about all that was asked of them , admitting the demands of the shippers to bo Just. The Anglo-American Packing company , who have been buying alt the crippled hogs , agreed to take into consideration uny plan proposed by the shippers and to do all they could to make fair compensation for what they bought. The Rendering company reported that they wcro paying Chicago prices for dead hogs , which ought to bo satisfactory to the shippers. The resolution , which was introduced at the last meeting , to so change the constitution of the association as to admit to membership parties from outside the state , was laid over until the next meeting. The following was theu unanimously adopted. Whereas , It appears from good evi dence that the railroads are discriminat ing against Omaha and are not acting in good faith with the shiupors , iu the way of transportation and rates , therefore , belt Resolved , That a committee of flvo bo appointed to investigate .tho matter and matco n report in full. The following gentlemen were appointed members of the committee : D. Anderson , Columbus ; James Danloy , Ashland ; A. C. Virgin , Uttca ; James Foley , Blair ; John Lansing , I'airflolil. After an informal discussion of various topics of interest to shippers the mooting adjourned. The next mooting will beheld hold on the second Wednesday in July unless it is thought necessary by the president to call iv special meeting before that time. L'ho association is in a very prosperous condition and its members number over fifty , all of them well known shippers. The secretary , Mr. John Wigirius , of Co lumbus , has had the preamble and by. laws printed , for the uenutit of the mem bers and ot shipper * , who are thinking ot joining thn association.

Unnqnct to Tlicm at Mlllnrrt Hotel Pr\Jectod Furniture Factory The National Opera Conipany at Length ticnvcn Westward. Moth's Methods. Charles Moth , the wrestler , will moot Colonel J. H. McLaughlin , of Minneapo lis , in a wrestling match at the exposi tion building to-night. The match will bo n good ono , as it is the meeting of two men who arc especially good In this line of athletic sport. As ( hero is an effort being made , however , to got the sports of Omaha into thn hands of square men , it is hoped that Moth will pack his collar box as soon as this match is over and join the army of sporting men of his ilk who have floated out of the oityin response to the demand of the patrons of sports for good attractions in the hands of square men. Tnat Moth is n wrcstlor of ability , there is no doubt , quoted opinions to the contrary notwithstanding. Colonel McLaughlin , who 1ms the reputation of being ono of the squarest sports in the country , And the acknowledged champion of all collar and elbow wrestlers , sixes Moth up an n very had man to handle , especially in Grjeco-Roman contests , iu which ho is especially skilled. Colonel McLaughlin , however , is careful to have all his deal ings with Moth in black and white as lie considers him a little scaly in business transactions , There has boon a crcat run of suckers in the stream of sport In Omaha during the past half year nud Moth docs not occupy a back seat in the procession by any moans. Ho has - resorted sorted to decidedly questionable methods in his matchmaking , and has convinced tlioso with whom lie has had dealings that Colonel McLaughlin's estimate of him is correct. During his eTorts ( to get up a match with McLaughlin to take place at the exposition building on March 28 ho oven wen so far ns to sign the namn of a BKE reporter to a telegram urging McLaughlin to como to Omaha at onco. In this connection a little explanation may bo timely. The first match between Moth and McLaughlin was arranged in part by T. W. Eck , the bicyclist , while ho was in this oity. When Mr. Eck wont away ho gave Colonel McLaughlin the name of n BEK reporter , who ho thought would look after the colonel's interest in the Match. As McLaughlin did not want to have any direct dealings with Moth , ho wrote to the reporter requesting him to make the match on his ( McLaughlin1 s ) part. The reporter replied that ho could take no part in the mtmagomorit of any affair that ho might bo called upon to criticise , and suggested that McLaughlin should como on and look after his own interests if he was afraid to allow Moth to make the match. The letter was duly received by Colonel MoLaughlin , who was surprised to receive immediately hereafter two telegrams , ono signed "Sporting Editor of the BEE" and the other by the name of a reporter , telling him to como out ntonce , as every thing had boon arranged and a good house was assured. Thcso telegrams , it has been ascertained , wore sent by Moth , who deliberately committed forgery to further his own interests. Moth knew hat Colonel MoLaughlin was sick on March 33 nnd could not bo here to take part in the match which was booked for : hatdato. Moth is not anxious to try conclusions with Colonel McLaughlin and made a deliberate attempt on that date to gull the public by scouring their money and giving thorn a substitute hip- : ) odromo fa fee between himself and Adolph Royco. He has been cornered now , however , and will have to wrestle to-night or lose all claims to any title , earned or self-assumed , that he may now hold. THE oiip AND ITHE NEW. A Banquet to tbo Retiring Postmaster ami His Successor , The accomplishment of a change in the management of the Omaha postoflico was made the occasion of a banquet that was tendered last night at the Millard hotel by the citizens of Omaha to Mr. C.

Ho referred to the imperative demand for additional room for the postolllco depart ment and prophesied that his successor would be greatly incon venienced by this lack of accomodations. He closed by wishing lib ) successor a most successful terra of oTtico. Mr. Gallagher followed Mr. Coutant la R response to tbo toast "Our Quoits.

" AMUSEMENTS. VIROINIUS AT IJOYD'S. The opera house was comfortably filled last night with admirers of Louis James , who won recognition hero in past sea sons when ho supported Lawrence Bur ro tt. His capabilities as a star wcro sat isfactorily demonstrated in "Virginius" aud roused instant nnd continuous on- thuslasm in his auditors. His line Roman bearing more strongly identified him with the part which ho eminently adapted to his personality. His acting is power ful and at times majestic , with an under lying current of fine pathos tnat sug gested a gonuinu emotion and forced into greater relief the lierco grandeur of his climaxes. Ono good thing that may bn said of Mr. James is that ho does not rant. Ho is its refined as lie is versatile. Marie Wainwrlght , as Virginia , gave an imper sonation that had all the attributes of sweet womanliness and innocence. H-er acting charms by its naturalness and grows gradually upon the auditor until it compels commendation. F. C. Moslov , as Icilius , shared largely the honors of the ovoning. His lines were delivered with marked intelligence and fine elocu tion. F. C. Hucbner , as Appius Claudius , was good , as wereGeorge Fawcott and James Cnrran iU'thcir parts. PEOVI.ESiTHEATER.

A few "ifriys ago a traiu of reight cars was backing along the B. & VI. between Gibson and this city on the ; rack which runs down to the river bot- ; om. Egan was upon the head car , the ono most distant from the engine , when 10 saw a little four year old child upon the track some few yards ahead. Quick as n Hash ho descended the ladder , swung himself around upon the brake beam and throw his feet under the cars until ho secured a hold upon the trucks with them , then , holding on with his foot , ho lot go with both hands and reached out and grasped the child as the train bore down upon it at the rate of ton miles an hour. It was a bravo act , at tended with great risks , and it was all done in a moment. Mrs. F. Liango's Buildings.

THUKK WEEKSA GOVKUNOK. low Mr. Ilnxtor of Wyoming tlccaino Executive and Then Stopped Hown. Among the passengers who went west ward last evening wai George W. Haxtor , of Choyounc , and Ins family. Mr , Baxter cnjoya the distinction probably of being n territorial governor with thn shortest crm on record. After President Cleveland > coamo settled comfortably in the big arm chair at the white house , Iho demo cratic "war hossos" of Wyoming ro- olced with great rejoicing. They had ilways been under republican admlnls- rations and consequently had always tad republican officials to bow down bo or o and worship , as it woro. The olco- ion of u democratic president was , there fore , to thorn , a nuw dispensation. Can didates became at once as numerous as ho iack rabbits of the fertile valleys of ho North Platlo. But the rosy-huud an- icipations of tlio long-suffurring democ racy wcro not reali/.od ns promptly us had been expected. It was Iko pulling tooth to got the republican appointees suspended. Francis E. Warren - ron , the governor , hold on most severely and tenaciously. As the months rolled > n nnd , despite most earnest work at Washington , no complaints were listened to , apparently , by the president , the icmocrats of the territory became wrathy nnd they prayed dally for some opportunity to supplant the genial iVarron with a hido-bouud democrat. Sir. Baxter , who was a candidate , finally hit upon the idea of having a complaint sent to the gonor.il land ollico regarding Jovornor Warren's fences around public and. With that as 'an excuse , Warren was suspended and Baxter , who had se cured influential southern support , was appointed. But ho scarcely had time to qualify before information was in the lands of the commissioner of the gen eral land ollico which tended to show lint it was n case of kettle call the pot ) lack , only more HO. The now governor mil fenced in more public land than thu ) ld governor had over dreamed of unclos- ng ; and ho had done it , too , after thn order of the president forbidding such jnclosurcs , while whatever olYcnso of the dnd that had boon committed by W.irron KU ! boon long before thu land officials had paid any attention to the matter , ind when it was not deemed an improper hing for the owner of adjacent suctions of railroad land to do. In two weeks after being appointed Mr. Baxter's lame was withdrawn , nnd that of Thomas Moonlight , the present gov ernor , was substituted. Mr. Baxter was governor jut three weeks.

It Is not commonly known that a large proportion of the rheinatism and neuralgia extant is traceable directly to the dlscaicd condition orlmpcrfcct action of the kidneys and liver : thercfoic n remedy which cures the resulting disease must have found and smitten the first cau c. Many persons uninp Athlophoros for ilu'iimntistnnm ! neu ralgia have been surprised to find that jhronic diseases of the Ihcr nnd kidneys lave also been greatly relieved anil they lave written for an explanation , The fact s , that the remedy nets directly on these organs , cleansing them from all irritating -ubstanccs nnd regulating their action. Taken in connection with Athlophoros [ 'Ills this is , without exception , the most valuable kidney and liver remedy in the world , and will cure a large proportion o | hose uho have these diseases. Charles F. Griffin , Stuart , Iowa , says ; 'I have not had an ache or pain ol rhcuma- istn since I used the Athlophoroa , which is now over a year ago. For three months my store was closed , not being able to nt- cnd lo my business nt all. My joints were swollen nnd there did not seem to be nny laitof my body that did not ache. After suffering in this way until the pnln was nl- nest beyond endurance , I went to CotCax Springs to try the elfectR of the water. The dav I left home I had to be carried down stairs. Alter remaining at the Springs a nonth I came back , being some better. After being home a few weeks I had a re- apse. It was at this time that I learned of Athlophoros. I sent for a bottle of it and in iftecn minutes after I had taken the first dose I felt its effect ) : , and whert I had fin- shed the third bottle I was well. I have not had any rheumatism-since. Every druggist should kcop Athlopho ros and AthTophoros Pills , but whore hey cannot bo bought of the druggist ; ho Athlophoros Co. , 122 Wall St. , Now York , will send either , carriage paid , dn receipt of regular price , which is $1 per > ottle for AthloDhoros nnd OOc for the Pills.

With the approach of spring nnd the increased interest man ifested in real estate matters , I am more than ever consult ed by intending purchasers as to fnvorablo opportunities for mvestmeut.and to all such would say- When putting any property on the market , and advertising it as desirable , I lmra invariably confined myself to a plain unrar nished statement of facts , never indulging in vague promises for the future , and the result in ev ery case has been tliat the expec tations of purchasers were more than realized. I can refer with pleasure to Albright's Annex And Baker Plact as sample illustrations. Lots in the "Annex" have quadrupled in value and are still advancing , whlto a street car line is already building past Baker Place , adding hundreds of dollars to the value of every lot. Albright's Choice was selected by mo with the greatest care after a thorough study and with the full knowledge of its value , and I can- conscientiously say to those Book ing a safe and- profitable invest ment that Albright's ' Choice offers chances not excelled In this market for a sure thing. Early investors have already reap ed largo profits in CASH , and with the many important improvements contemplated , some of whioh are now under way , every lot in this splendid addition will proyo u bo nanza to first buyers.
