With the new fixtures , etc. , recently uut in by them , their store now has a line appearance , Hiulio & Ycnawino have just received' twenty now brands of Key West and Im ported cigars. They arrived yesterday by express from Now York. The llrobstel Uros. are planning on changing tlio front of their harness store on Uroadwiiy. The improvement as planned will uc a great one. All members of the K. ofj. . who cop- template visiting Omaha this evening to G. M. W. Powdorly are requested to hear i meet at the Broadway depot at 7:10 : , i sharp. I A report is afloat that Jcss'c McMahon , ii i who formerly lived here , had committed i suicide in Canada. There seems no veri I ! fication of that rumor , and his friends ' here scout the idea. I Miss Gertie Larson , sister of the Main street leather merchant by that name , who was injured bv being thrown out of n buggy on Thursday evening , is doing nicely under the circumstances. Yesterday afternoon as one of Skin ner's ' express wagons was making the dummy train the wagon toncuo dropped nnd a runaway was only averted by the habitual inertia of the long eared steeds. The aldermen as a board of equaliza tion are meeting nightly. They are hav ing n hard time in adjusting the assess ments and the work promises to bo a Ion" and vexatious ono. They are pro ceeding very carefully , and thus far have only got into the second letter of the nlpnabct. Tim plut of the feninha addition wns filed yesterday. This addition is ono of the best of all the now ones , and a goodly number of the lots have already been contracted for. It lies west of the trans fer , and with Use overllow from Omaha , together with local improvements' , cannot but rise in value rapidly. George W. Mayweed , who was a painter hero for years , is now In Cali fornia. Sol II. Foster yesterday received from him a bunch of oranges and n bunch of lemons , which are displayed in ono of Foster Uros. ' windows. The .or anges are of ordinary size but the lemons are great , live weighing thirteen ounces each. "Whore can I throw some rubbish ? " asked a citizen of tlio city marshal yes terday. Ho was only ono of many , and the same answer comes cverv time. "I don't know , unless you find some ono who is filling up a lot , and will lot you put it there. " The city has no system for cleaning up , and no regular place for deposit. Mr. Stout , who recently purchased the Ogden house property , has gone on a ten days' trip to Texas. On his return bo will begin at once the improvements referred to some time ago. A now pas senger elevator will bo put in , the floors covered with tiling , nnd several other changes made. It is his intention to make the hotel first class iu every re spect. Ed Lei and denied that ho was drunk. Ho says that ho had been up all of the previous night , and while sitting down in front of a livery stable , waiting for a roan to uay him some money , no fell ' asleep The judge thought that'any man who fell asleep while there was any money in sight must bo drunk or crazy , . Ho lined him 50 cents extra for denying that ho was druuk. A new enterprise has been started in Council BlulVrf , it being that of a yeast cake factory at No. 150 Broadway. The proprietor , Mr. Thomas , informed a BKB man that the only difficulty ho has so far experienced is his inability to supply the demand. He does .not retail but soils iu Job lots only. He has at present only two men employed , but intends to in crease his capacity to supply tlio de mands. Mrs. M. A. Ford , who has been ill so long , died of gaiigrcno Thursday after noon nt 4:45 : o'clock ' nt her homo , No. 1000 Fourth street. She had been con lined to her bed four months and hajl Buffered intensely. Mrs. Ford was born in Galwav. Saratoga county , Now York , in 1834. She came to this city m 1850 , and had resided here orer since. The funeral will take place at a o'clock this afternoon from the residence. The re mains will bo buried in Fairview ceme tery. tery.When When the Grand Army gave n campfire - fire hero for the beuolit of thn Cottage hospital , the citizens contributed of pro visions so liberally that there was quite a quantity loft over. Although the enter tainment was for the benefit of the hos pital , still some of the veterans who were on tlio committee concluded that it would bo a just and generous thing 'to turn a part of the uuusod provisions over to the homo of the friendless. To this there wassomo opposition , as the avowed ob- Icet of the entertainment was only the lospital , and those who gave did so with that understanding. Still the veterans insisted on thus practically remembering the homeless children. The manager of the homo now publicly thanks the ladies of the hospital for the donation and gives them the credit of the entertainment.

THE CONTRACf DULY SIGNED The Work on the Manawa Railway to Com * inence at Once , . GENERAL DODGE AT HOME. Mo TalkH Freely Hut Uvadcf Itepoi" torlal Queries The Uuslncss Men's Club Itricf. Mentions and Happenings. The Manntvn Contract hot. J. K. Graves , of Dubtiquu , arrived hero yesterday to close the prulimitinry ar rangements in regard to the building of the motor line to Luke Mutiawa. Tlioso interested mot yesterday afternoon , and the details were arranged satisfactorily and the contract drawn up and signed. Tills makes the enterprise secure , beyond any shadow of doubt. Mr. Graves , as all know , is a man who means business , and ins agreement to build the line s'ettles nil questions. Mr. Graves says ho will order material to-ilay and that it will bo hero bv Friday of next week. Ho expects to start work at once , and to have the road running within thirty days , although the contract trivcs hint until the lirst of July. The line agreed to is from the dummy depot on Hroadway south on Ninth street to the city limits , than west to Eleventh street and south to Hay's landing , then east to Marks' landing. There are to bo two IJ.ildwin noiseless motors. Tlio de tails all having been put in black and white , and the contract signed , work will commence as soon as possible , and those who have watched Mr. Graves in his work elsewhere know that the chances are great that ho will rush through the work long before the date lixcd in the contract. General lo < lic at Homo. General G. M. Dodge , ono of the di rectors of the Union Pacilic railway , arrived hero yesterday , and was greeted heartily by his old friends and fellow- townsmen. Ho is looking as vigorous as though passing time and the weight of business were touching him but lightly. General Uodgois known among * reporters as ono of the easiest men to interview and one of the hardest to got anything out of. Ho is approachable , greets an eager questioner so cordially and chats so freely that tlip novitiate 'has his hopes raised high and sees n col umn or more of interesting reading mat ter growing out of the golden opportu nity. The veteran reporters who have had the pleasure of meeting him before , know bettor what to expect. General Dodge talks , talks freely , but when any subject is opened up that means busi ness he can talk around it more skilfully than any of the promincnts. Tlio eagnr interviewer is aggravated by the "thou art so near and yet so fat" situation that he has to retire in despair , and as ho takes his leave from the genial general the latter remarks : "Now , don't you re port anything as coming from mo. " In nine times out of ton the reporter could not if he would. General Dodge did impart the informa tion , however , that ho was on route for Denver. He stopped on" hero to SPO his old homo , and expected to meet Presi dent Adams in Omaha. He would also stop hero on his rctuin from Denver. It was simply a private business trip. It is understood that his real purposes in making the trip are concerning the Union Pacific. As to thu details of the matters to be looked after , ono conjecture is about as reasonable : H another. It is understood that among the minor matters - tors to be considered is tlio Tenth avenue project. The company has not taken any action as yet , mid the delay has boon caused by the change in the ollfccrs. Mr. Potter will have numerous matters to consider , and this will bo among those to which his attention will bo called early. It will take him a little time to become conversant with the situation , so that a little delay is unavoidable. There scorns to bo no doubt but that the Union Pacific will accept the ordinance , ami build its freight depot as asked. General Dodco was asked about the union depot. On this ho talked a little plainer : "You folks take hold of things the wrong way' You try to make the tail shake the dog , instead of the dog shaking the tail. The Iowa roads are more interested hero than the Union Pa cilic , and they should bo the ones yon ought to move on for securing a union depot. If they want a union depot , and if they go in to build ono , the Union Pa cilic will rnn into it , of course. That is my belief. " "What would be done with the transfer then ? " "You needn't worry about the transfer. Wo have uses enough for that. Those who think that the transfer buildings stand in the way of the Union Pacilic running into a union depot , if one is built , are mistaken. " On being asked about what the Union Pacific company was going to do on this side of the river , General Dodge replied that the last time ho talked with Presi dent Adams about it Mr. Adams said he was going ahead with the plans already outlined some time ago. "It is all right then to report progress ? " "I don't care what you report , but you mustn't report mo as saying anything. " They Iiauehotl First. Yesterday Justice Burnett delivered a written opinion in the cases of the three young men , William Hummel , Thomas Murphy and William Brown , charged with disturbing the religious services of the Salvation army. Ho doubted whether the Salvationists had any right to forbid any in the congregation leaving the hall , except when singing , and doubted whether they had the right to lock the congregation in. If there was any ne cessity for any ono to leave ho ought to bo allowed to do so and had the right to leave. In such R case , however , a per son should approach the door as quietly us possible. In tills ease it seems that the whole gang started for the door with such a rush , and talked so loud , and burst open the door so violently as to disturb the entire congregation. The evidence showed that there was a regu lar gang who went there for fun and who had boon disturbing previous meetings. The defendants admitted belonging to this gang and it was evident that they disturbed this meeting wilfully. In view of the fact that the Salvation army was rather noisy in its meetings , and it was so peculiar an organization as to perhaps Justify persons in being less solemn than n other places ho made the line light $10 each and costs. Dennis Harmer , who had pleaded guilty , was let off with a line of half that amount. . _ Cuttlntc a Forest. The evangelist , Ed Forrest , who lately held a sarics of revival meetings here , is now on the Pucitio coast. Ho is evidently still indulging in his slang , and his talk about "sealskin Christians. " Tic | Sun Francisco Post says of him : "Ho brings to the aid of the gospel the vocabulary of the street blackguard and the hanger- on of gambling-houses. Christ , ho tolls his audience , has 'dealt him a full hand , ' and ho assures them that it Is a 'winner every time. ' Episcopalians displease him in the manner in which they 'do the prayer act. ' Regular clergymen who preach their sermons in the orthodox manner are 'lluo-haired ducks. ' As for ilmself , it Is hii ambition to give divine , ruth to sinners 'right in the neck , ' It s apparent that Forrest cares more for notoriety than for the welfare of San Francisco sinners. " J. G. Tipton has good houses to rent. Telephone 241) ) . The Club Organized. Another meeting of those interested in the formation of a business men's club was held last evening at Mueller's music house. There was a goot'ly ' number present. The committee on constitution and by-laws presented a written report , which after some' amendment was udopted. The name of "The Council Ulull's Club" was adopted. The committee on securing a location reported in favor of taking rooms over Uudlo & Yeiinwinc's , and it was docldcil to take that place , and proceed to lit the rooms up at once. The following wore elected as ofllcers : President S. P. Maeeonell. First \ ice President J. A. Baldwin. Second Vice President J. Lymaii. Secretary II. W. Tilton. Treasurer Dr. Macrae. Executive Committee Simon Eiscman , L. II , Weils , William Moore. J. G. Tipton has a number of bargains in residence property , and if you con template selecting n lot to build on , or n residence all ready to move into , you should not sleep away j'our chances , out call upon him at once before property advances. A Stray Opera Glass. Some time ago some of Jim Wilson's Family went in a hack from the opera liouse , and somewhere on the way lost a valuable opera glass. Wilson offered a reward of ? 10 for its return , but could liear nothing.about it. A few nights ago Olllcer Beswick was standing at the dummy depot , and overheard some liaokmcn talking about the number of articles found in hacks , and swapping experiences. Ono driver told about limling an opera glass last winter. The pllicer overhearing this , and remember ing that Wilson had lost one , tackled the Fellow , and learned from him that ho had pawned the class in Omaha for $3. On finding that Wilson would still pay $10 for its return ho went over to Omaha , redeemed the glass , and claimed the re ward. Wanted Men and teams to work on dam at Lake Manawa.
