Defeats Moth Nolllo < Jrt cl > lo'H Troubles Hunting Her Ilustmnil The Poor Farm Ap praisement Other Local. The National Oporn Company. The National Opera company loft last night at 10 o'clock for San Francisco. Their doluy of forty hours in Omaha , winch wai so vexatious to tins miinago- mont , was caused by a hitch in the ar- raiifiomcnts which Manager Locke had made with the Union 1'acillc railway to take the entire company to San Fran cisco by special chartered trains at a cur tain rate per mile. The amount agreed upon was guaranteed on Wednesday morning by the backers of the company in Now York and all arrangements made for the company's departure for the west at once. At the last hour the Central Pacific gave notice of a domurr from the agreement made by General Passenger Agent Morse , of the Union Pacific , and thereby caused the delay. Man ager Looko could not proceed until the Central Pacillo people given satisfactory terms in order to avoid the great delay that would bo necessary at Ogdcn by the weighing and transferring of the com pany's baggage and effects. All day yes terday Manager Locke and the Union Pacilic olllcials wore in telegraphic com munications with the ollioials of the Cen tral Pacific and the Now York capitalists who are backing the company. In the meantime the lesser lights of the com. pany wore enjoying themselves. The girls wore frisking about the depot as hap pily and unconcernedly as though noth ing was the matter. A largo number of them strayed over to Kosslor's hall , and busied themselves in emptying beakers of lager , while these who did not care to walk so far , made.up a purse and ordered a plenteous supply of Krug'a best. The men amused them selves by playing base ball , foot ball or cards. In fact , none of them seemed to care whether "school kept or not. " This line ot amusement was kept up until 8 o'clock' last night , when the difficulties 'wore announced to have been adjusted and the switch engines were nut to work making up the opera trains. This stopped the merrymaking and .inaugurated a hustle on the part of the company to got ready for the start. Messengers were dispatched for members who were amus ing themselves at a distance from the depot , and preparations begun for the 'ou ride. The train was announced to itart at 8'30 o'clock and all was in readi ness when Manager Locke was called up iown to hold a conversation with Mr. Connor and Mrs. Thurber in Now York' This lasted until 0 o'clock and evidently resulted satisfactorily , as the moving orders were given very soon thereafter. Manager lxcke was seen by a BEE re porter as ho was hurrying to the depot after his conference with the directors of the company in tho'east. "Wo ao as soon as I can reach the train"Tie said , in response to the query of the reporter. "Evorythmpj has been arranged satisfactorily. The DEE was 'n error In the statement that Mr. Hunt ngion of the Central Pacific was ininii cal to the company. On the" contrary , he is one of our heaviest stockholders and was instrumental in effecting the desired traffic arrangements with the Central Pacific , by wnlch we are enabled to leave to.-night. Wo have had considerable and I desire you to express publicly my thanks to the Omaha gentlemen who aided mo financially during the com pany's delay. I have just had the pleas ure of returning thorn all the money they advanced and 1 appreciate their kind ness very much.- "VN ill you be able now to reach San Francisco in time to commence your en gagement on Monday nightJ" "Wo will roach San Francisco some time on Sunday. Wo have n contract for a twenty-ono-night engagement in San Francisco at a guarantee of $1,000 a night , commencing on Monday night , and wo will get there in time to give the company one night's rest before our sea son opens. We will have a right of way and will make the trip as Apidly as wheels can carry us , stopping only for water tindfuel. " At 9:80 : o'clock the trains were pulled up on the main line of the Union Pacific and started for the Hying trip to San Francisco at n few minutes before 10 o'clock. Alleged Mismanagement. "So much has been said and written concerning the financial troubles of the National Opera company , and the prob ability and possibility of the venture proving a financial success , that I desire to add my opinion , formed from a knowl edge of the affairs of the company , " said a gentleman prominently connected with the management of the company to a OEE reporter last night. ' 'The enterprise is the greatest one of IU kind over at tempted and yet In the right hands could be made a financial success. Under the present management it cannot bo made to pay. I say this with all respect to Mr. Locke. Ho Is a manager of ability , but there ia something flagrantly wrong in the present order of things. Treasurer J aft ray has been quoted in the HUB as placing the expenses of the company at about ? H,00 ( ) a day. You will be surprised to lenrn whore this expense comes in. In the first place Mr. Look gets : 800 a week for Ins services and has full managerial power. He has thren treasurers at' an ex pense of between $500 and $000 a week. Ho has four door keepers and never uses but ono of them. Neither of them re ceives less than f50 a week. Ho had four electricians at salaries that are com manded by the bc.st experts in this lino. Ho cannot , and does not furnish work enough ot this kind to keep one man busy. Ho has five stage carpenters at big salaries and yet when the company ar rived hero the services of a local stage carpenter were employed to arrange the stage and scenery in the exposition building. Then ho hns three or four sur plus ngnnti who seem to have nothing to do except to travel with the company and draw their salaries with becoming regularity. In all , Mr. Locke pays out of the pockets of the stockholders in this great enterprise at least $2,500 per week for services that could bo very well dis pensed with. Of hia object or gain in so doing I know nothing and faro less , ex cept that as a musician and lover of such enterprises I hate to see such u magnifi cent enterprise Injured by apparent needless extravagance. The company also pays Theodore Thomas $1,000 ii week for the use of his or chestra. Thomas gets 11,000 a week additional for his name and services while he stays In New York and entrusts the direction of the orchestra to an as sistant who pulls nn additional $500 a week for his services. Of course Thomas and his renowned orchestra are neces sary to thn success of thff enterprise , but the owners of the company are foolish to allow Locke to pay auch enormous sal aries to persons from whom ho receive * no dirrct service.'Outside of these ex tra vajjuuci's the expenses of the company are not so abominably great. Jncli gets $1,000 n week , but with this exception the salaries of the singers are not largo and the number of the company tends to lessen the pro rata expense. Properly managed the venture would prove a financial success. " A AVIlil Humor of a Union Depot. The rumor was spread last evening that the railroads at present terminating their lines at the transfer depot and also the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha , Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley , and Missouri Pacific had come to an agreement upon a grand union depot project in Omaha. The Union Pacific and H. & M. were not reported to be in the combination , it was further stated that the purpose was to condemn for depot purposes a largo and valuable portion tion of the city lying north of Dodge street and cast of Twelfth street. The Information at first came from Mr. Frank Delono , and ho was sought. Ho slated that his brother informed him of it. His brother could not bo found , but C. K. Mayno , F. A. Nash and several other gontlemcn , who were supposed to bo in a position to know , wcro inter viewed and cacli and all declared that they know nothing about It. Mr. Nash being witli the Chicago & Milwaukee , which company is conceded to bo Interested in the Nebraska Central project , ho was believed to bo good ' authority. Ho stated that at present the relations of various companies were so strained that ho did not believe it possi ble that such a combination could bo mado. Mr. Mayno , as ono of the projectors of the cable line which proposes to build on Dodge street , was also regarded as very likely to bo informed. Ho awowed that he had never heard of such a thing and could not credit it. The generally accepted theory was that the rumor sprang from the condem nation proceedings which the Nebraska Central is taking-to secure bridge premi ses and depot grounds , presumably 1'oT the benefit of the Milwaukee. STRUGGLE OF THE GIANTH. iiElilIn Throws Moth Twice Another Contest To-night. Uetwccn two hundred and tlireo hun dred men with their hats on and enjoying the solace of the weed made up a small , black group in the vastnc of the expo sition hall last evening when Colonel J. H. McLlauglilin , the champion collar and elbow wrestler of the United States , and Charles Moth , the champion Griuco- Koman wrestler , mot in a throe-stylo match. John Prince was selected as roforoo. The first bout was collar and elbow , both men wearing small jackets. Time was called at 9:113 : , and as the wrestlers secured a firm hold on each other's jackets the comparison between them was especially noticeable. McLaughlin was the perfect picture of the Hercules that ho is , but a Hercules out of tri m. While his ponderous biceps , chest and leg muscles showed m nil their sym metry , it was evident that they wore soft , and at the bolt was a tendency to corpo- rosity which belongs to the business man and not the athlete. Moth , on the other hand , while not making the show of muscle which his opponent did , was clearly haid and wiry and m splendid competing condition. Where his mus cles appeared they stood out knotted and. clearly defined and at the waist there was no stomach to impede his cat-like move ments. The contestants tugged a little at each other's collars and .tapped logs with their foot , but no move ments of strength were shown until the third minute , when McLaughlin secured a grapevine lock and in a Hash Moth was down. But in going ho had turned half around and slippery as an eel , ho broke away. Again Mao caught Moth with his favorite grapevine , and again the agile German turned in the air. A third time they struggled , for a brief space , and then McLaughlin made n lightning trip with a powerful twitch and Moth lauded fairly nn his shoulders. The crowd cheered and commenced to warm up into considerable enthusiasm. The time was D:14 : } . * After a ten minutes' breathing spoil they mot in the Gncco-Homan , Moth's favorite , and in which ho is the acknowl edged champion. Attor a few minutes close hugging and two or throe tugs by each to test the other's stability , Me- Laughliu turned Moth and sent him dowmynrd. It appeared when ho started with his back fairly to the lloor as if ho would sutler quick defeat at his own game , but ho whirled in the air and struck on his hands and knees. Then as McLaughlin tried to turn him ho literally ran out from uiulor the Michigan Hercu les and was on his feet before the latter had * hardly time to regain his own. Again Moth was forced down by his powerful antagonist's strength ami a second end time he made ono ot his surprising Hums and broke away , amid vociferous applause. When they came together again it appeared as if ono or the other's nook would bo broken. They turned and strained and their muscles stood out like bunches of iron. McLaughlin twice secured the hold ho was after , but Moth slipped out. Then Mac found his grip and made a spcndid turn and force , put ting Moth on his head but the latter bridged just us skillfully , keeping his shoulders from the iloor , and rolled out from under. Again" and a third time this was done , and finally both antagonists came to the lloor. Then Moth for a time forced the struggle and twice ho nearly turned McLaughlin , the l.Utcr'a immense strength nlono saving him. Moth seemed to be , and in reality was , loading his antagonist to attempt to catch his nock in a full Nelson , -so that ho might break it and catch the arm lock. In this ruse ho was successful , and on n third trial , while McLaughlin had him in the air , Moth turned and caught the lock and placed the doughty colonel squarely upon his shoulders. The cheer ing was loud and long , and Moth was accorded n notch higher in the public estimation. . The time was 15:1 : } . At the juncture , after the men had re tired to rest and rub down , J. C. Farley , of San Francisco , appeared and said that ho had proposed to.challenge the winner of the match , which challenge ho then made publicly. Ho stated that ho had been informed that Moth had called him n haymaker , and ho was anxious to make hay of Mdth in a wrestling match as soon as ho could. Ho was anxious , though , to wrcstlo the winner of the match first. Moth then said that he had never hoard of the gentleman , Farley , but ho would moot him at any time and would wrestle him then and there on the spot in any uhape. McLaughlin said that ho was ready to wrestle the gentle man but wanted to dispose of Moth first. After ho had attended to Moth ho would meet the stranger at any time or for any amount , or he would wrestla both him and Moth on the follow ing night. ( Applause. ) The third bout was then called and the men played witn each other cautiously for a few minutes. Then they closed and McLaughlin put bis grapavlno lock at work. There was a second's tug and Moth wont in the air and down on his back. Hut ho bridged successfully and got on his foot. The next time , though , McLaughlin caught the grapevine lock on his antagonist , ho throw him on his side and gradually forced his shoulders down. The jacket which Moth wore , according to the claims of tbo ( Jrunlia man , played an important part In thh , ai it pormlttod .MiiLaughlln to choke him. The fall ( In'Ssft ) and match were awarded lo McLajgilm. | ) McLaughlin was seconded by Parshall and Moth bv Haldwin. At the announcement by the referee of the result of the match there were loud calh for the mon M take oil' tholr jackets and wrcstlo catch-m-catch-can. This McLaughlin refused't to do at the timo. but ho agreed to Moth's proposition that to night they sliohld1 moot again in the samu place for a m'afbh of Hvo bouts- collar and elbow , .Graoco-Koman , catch- as-catch-can , side , hold and back hold. The winner of throq is to take the gate receipts and a purau of $100. Therefore , unless there is some hitch in obtaining the hall , the giants will meet again this evening. AMUSKSIRNTS. PKOl'LK'd TH1UTKR. Charles Gilday's comedy company produced their play , "A Piece of Pie1 ' last night to an audience that filled every available space in the theater. The play is a farclal comedy and is constructed for laughing purposes and serves that * end admirably. From the beginning to the finish of the performance the audl- cnco wai convulsed with laughter. Miss Fannie Heatio Is a very catchy and pleas- inir soubrette and as n dancer is unex celled by any ono. Charles Gilday Is a comedian of great merit and resorts tone no bullbnery to obtain laughter or ap plause from his audiences. Ho has : i natural humor and his methods are legit imate. The play , "A Piece of 1'io , " is pure and free from all the suggestiveness - ness which usually characterizes plays of the farce comedy order and depends solely upon the .situations and ability of the company to create merriment. The play will bo repeated to-night and will d/mbtlcss draw another largo houso. Turnbnll Took the llckcr. , J. M. Cross- and Nelly Scott were iir rested yesterday afternoon and slated ns suspicious characters. Nelly , who wrestles with the festive sandwich jn u Fourteenth street chop house , it appears , ' h.ul possession of n watch which she claimed had been presented to her by a tin-horn gambler named lloskins. The lover became jealous of Nelly's partiality for Cross and had them both arrested on the charge of larceny. The case was called before JudgeStcnborg , who de cided that it was a love affair which did not merit judicial interference. Hoskins got possession of the watch to find that Nelly had succeeded in mashing the crystal and breaking off a few of the hands , "The watch ain't wortli $3. as it is , " said Hoskins plaintively. "I'll give you $3 for it , " said Officer Turnbull , who was in the court. "It's a go , " replied Hoskins and Iho transfer was made and the case dismissed. Nelly now promises , to replevin the ticker from Ollicor Turn- bull. Crlctdt. The first annual imputing of the Omaha Cricket club took' place last night , at which about twenty members were present.

To the Editor of 'the BKE : The resident who lives near Hanscom park and who so loudly complains about the "thieving gypsies" is evidently off his base and should look for the thieves elsewhere. Old Mr. Reynolds , the "gypsy king , " who is at the head of the band , together with all the members of tho- band , enjoy a high reputation all through the state of Iowa for honesty and fair dealing. I have been acquainted with him and his family for six years. Mr. Luther Owen , druggist at 505 North Sixteenth street , has known the band for thirteen years and there are many other persons in the city well acquainted with them and wo dislike to hoar any such evil attributed to them as wo consider them very worthy people.

In fact , one cai-c , n lady of over seventy j cars , has been tick for jcars , and for the past ten years I have known her she has not been able to be around half the time , about six months ago she got so feeble she was helpless. Her old remedies , or physi cians , being of no avail. I sent to depo it , forty-five miles , and got a bottle of Hop Bitters. It had tuch a very beneficial effect on her that one bottle impioved h.'r so she was nblc to daess herself and walkabout the house. When she h.id taken the second bottle she was able to taite care of her own and walk out to her neighbor's and liai. hn- pro\cd all the time since.

TIMBURCH. A Husband's Testimony. My wife was troubled for years with blotches , moth patches and pimples on her face , which nearly annoyed the life out of her. She spent many dollars on the thou sand infallible ( ? ) cures , with nothing but in jurious effects. A lady friend , of Syracuse N.
