K- THE OMAHA DAILY 1BEE : SATURDAY. MAY 14. 1887 THE WATERWORKS TROUBLE Bomo Interesting Interviews About the Recent Law Suits. A MOTOR LINE TO PLATTSMOUTH Another Case of Suicide l-'lvc llorsoa Swirt'HlIlK Scheme I'ollco I ocnl Court News General City Now * . The Waterworks Trouble. The suit of Marshal Fluid n iiitm the \Vaterworkscotnpany. . an account of which was published In Thursday night's UEE , luis stirred up : i hornets nest. In teresting and .sensational developments prom'so ' to come out of the affair betoro It Is settled. The men who are Interested with Mr. Field in bringing the suit , insist upon il that ttiulr allegations of frauu arc true , while Messrs. Kogers , Dumont , Johnson and Morse , are equally positive that the charges nro trumped up. Mr. S. H. .Johnson , one of the old directors of the company , was interviewed yesterday by a reporter for the llun. In reply to a question , ho said : "Tho story about myself , Hogcrs , Dumont ana Morse entering into an agreement with Marshal Field to control the Interest in the old company , by hold ing the biggest share of the stock. Is all nonsense. Thcro was no agreement on our part that no man was to sell without gottmg the consent of the others. In fact , 1 have a letter trom Marshal Field to show that ho would not consent to any mich arrangement , as ho declared that he did not want to have any stock on hand that ho could not sell whenever lie wanted to. " "How about the story that you sold the stock to him under ( also representa tions ? " "It's a malicious Ho"replied Mr..John- son , "the stoeK was sold to him in a manner fair , square and above board. " "The petition charges that the larger stockholders conducted the ulairs ( so us to freeze out the smaller stockholders and dcprcciato the value of their stock ? " "That Is false , too. The all'nirs of the company were conducted In such a way that those smaller stockholders should receive just as much benefit proportion ately as the larger ones. The story that the preferred stock was sold to pay oil'a debt of the now company to myself , Hog- on and Dumont is not true. This money was raised to make improvement which the company badly needed. " "Tho fact is , " continued Mr. Johnson , 'this ' trouble has originated from a man who is a sorehead , U.V. . Hamilton , of the U. S. National bank. Just to show you that this man has tried to injure the company , in its pro gressive moves , lot me toll you of a trick ho played not long ago. This story I got from Mr. Underwood , and I don't want you to print it us coming from mo. You sec , some time ago the new waterworks company was nego tiating the loan of some monuy on its stock. It had just about succeeded in netting all the money it wanted in Boston , when an advertisement appeared in the Jtoston Advertiser stating that some ono in Omaha has sonic waterworks stock to sell at par. This knocked the negotiations in the head and the money had to bo secured at 5 per cent. No name was affixed to the advertisement , but the number of the ad vertiser's ' post olllce box was given. Tno matters were traced down and it was found that the post oflico box was that of Mr. Hamilton. Ho is the man , I believe - liovo who is mainly.instigating this suit. " Secretary Wylio , of the Waterworks company was also seen. In reply to a question , ho said. "Of course , wo shall obey the mandates of the court. This injunction suit will prevent us temporar ily at least from going ahead with our improvements at Florence. After the in junction is disposed of , if the result is m our favor , wo shall go ahead with our improvements. We are doing some work within the oity which this suit will not affect. " "How about the statements made in field's petition. " "They are pretty nearly false from beginning - ginning to end. The sale of that pro- furred stock was not made for the bone- lit of any of the old or now stockholders , but simply to raise money for the now system of waterworks wo propose to es tablish at Florence. The truth is that Hamilton , Creighton , and some of the smaller stockholders nro doing every thing under God's heaven to prevent the Company from making improve ments. The story that these minor stockholders wore not given any opportunity to bo present and vote on the improvements , is false. Wo oven went so far as to admit to our meetings Mr. Kountzo as'a representative of Air. Croighton. though ho had no proxy. " "How about the lease of the company to the American Water company ? " "Well , the lease has been made for seventeen years , and the full terms of the contract will appear when wo illo our answer in court. Wo still retain our property , and simply mortgage a portion of our earnings for the uoxt seventeen years , in order to raise money to make those improvements. Mind you , wo are not watering our stock wo are not increasing pur revenue we are not managing the affairs of the com pany in the interest of any ono clique , Wo are trying to raise money to make improvements in our system for the ben < olit of the people of Omaha. No , sir , il is not true that either Mr. Underwood 01 myself are either directly or indirectl ) connected with the American Walel company , to which this soventeeon yeai has been mudo. " OMAHA AND PLiATTSMOUril. How the Two Cities Will bo Unltci by n Now Hallway. It dovolopos that the Omaha Motoi railway company , which ia now laying its tracks on Twenty-fourth street anil Lcavenworth , is being built for no otho purpose than the operation of a line between twoon this city and Plattsmouth , twenty miles distant. A reporter who receive * an inkling of the schema yesterday , mo and interviewed Dr. S. 1) . Mercer , ono o the directors of the company , about tin matter. Ho said that the company pro posed to extend its line to I'lattsmouth and would possibly have it in oporatioi before fall , us a largo force of men won engaged in laying track. The company ho said already had its line built from Will nut Hill to California street and was nov ongiigeit in lining in the intermcdiad gap. From Vinton street to F street , lh < north line of South Omuha , track luu boon laid. Iteforo passing throng ) South Omaha , the company would huvi to meet an injunction , which had beoi served against it by the city council o that burg. It seems that the compan procured its right of way privileges froii the county commissioners , whereas UK council of South Omaha thought that th grant should have been obtained fron them. The company already has a continuon right of way to Sarpy county. A ciuiu skirmish is being made now for a righto way through Sarny and Cuss counties , t bridge will bo built ever the 1'latto river which will probably bo operated solely n the interests of the Omaha & rjattdmoi.it Motor railway. Dr. Mercer said that the now lln would run. through a tract of 1,100 acre near the city of Wattsmouth which hu : been purchased by uu Omaha syndicate The line would then connect with the now street railway which Is td bo bhilt in PJattsmouth. Trams will bo run between the two cities every hour. The Huldwiu Nolsoless Steam motor will bo usodi SHIFT'S UIU BCHEME. What Chicago's Great Packer Ha * to Bay. Mr. O. F. Swift , the ( Jroat Chicago packer arrived in the city yesterday morn ing : with his assistants and architects , Mes srs. K. Welles , S. Vankirk and II. C.Gard ner. Ho came here to look over the ground nl South Omaha preparatory to erecting his largo slaughter and packing house. Ho went early in the day to South Omaha , and spent several hours there , "surveying the situation , " in company with stock yard ollicials. Mr. Swift was met at the Paxton by a Hin : reporter , who had a short and pleas ant interview with him about his pro posed business. "I have about thirteen acres at South Omaha , " said Mr. Swift , in reply to a question , "and on that I prop < Ho to erect a largo system of slaughter and packing houses. There will lie several buildings. First a building for slaughtering and packing sheet ) and cattle , a building for rendering , a building for oil , another ono for a tank house , and another ono for pruparing fertilizers. Altogether there will be live or six large buildings. " "What will bo the capacity of the es tablishment. " "I'robably about 700 or 800 cattle a day , and as many sheep as we want to kill. The cost ? It will probably bo in the neighborhood of $300,000 , bof6ro we get through. "When do you expect to commence work on the building ? " "Inside of twenty days at the farthest. 1 expect to have everything in running order by October 1. In addition to the the other features , 1 expect to have a sys tem of car repair shops. " In reply to further questioning Mr. Swift said that as the plans had not yet been minutely determined u on , he could not give the details of the struc tures which ho proposed to erect. South Omaha , ho said , had a good stock mar ket , which might ono day equal that.of Kansas City. DIED ON HIS KNEES. liana Nelson Avoids a Few Creditors by Strangulation. Yesterday morning about 9:30 : o'clock the body of Hans Nelson was found in tlio cellar o"f his grocery htoro , 812 North Six teenth street. It was on its km > es , the chin resting on the edge of a barrel. The noose of a small cord was fastened around the neck , and this was broken oil' , a piece of which still hung from the celling. Death had ensued , apparently from strangulation. Kurly in the morning Nelson said to his partner , Chris I'otcrson , that they would be compelled to fail , because they could not meet their debts. The amount which they had to makogood , which was not available , was about three hundred dollars. Peterson said that if they had to fail , they couldn't help it , and there was no reason to complain about it. Nelson then took the wagon , went out and brought in some orders , and when next seen , which was by a clerk named Jacob Janscn , he was in the condition above described. Coroner Drexel empanelled a jury and the verdict returned was that Nelson had como to his death from hanging while laboring under temporary aberra tion of mind. The remains are now in the room of the deceased over his store. They will bo buried Sunday afternoon by the Dan ish society. Edison Electric Light System Estimates furnished. GKO. W.

In the midst of the heavy rain storm which prevailed Thursday night lightning struck the big horse and car barn of the street railway company at Twenty-fourth and Luke streets. Five horses were in stantly killed and two blinded. Though there were quite a number of men in the stable at the time , very fortunately no ono was injured. The lightning struck on the north part of the barn , and be yond tearing oil'a few shingles , did not hurt the structure to speak of. The total loss to the company will bo about s800. The two horses which were struck blind were not injured otherwise , and will bo fairly serviceable. A Soldier. Thomas O'Connor , the veteran citi/.cn and otllco holder in this community , has received information that his brother Lnko , a distinguished olllccr in the ser vice of England , has boon retired with the rank of major general. Luke O'Con nor was ottered the governor generalship of Canada at ono time , but refused it , pre ferring to Do on active service. In speak ing of him the London Times says : 'It is announced that the next Bath Gazette will include that gallant sol dier , Luke O'Connor , who when sergeant at Alma , was ono of the first recipients of the Victoria cross. Ho has recently retired from the service with the rank of major gouoral. " Cottage colors ready for use in now and desirable shades.

The Eleventh street viaduct is to have two electric lights , ono ever the llrst railroad tracks and the other on the north end of the truss. The viaduct will not be open for a couple of weeks because - cause it has been decided to construct : rail between the roadway and sidewalk : to prevent accidents to pedestrians fron frightened teams. This rail was not con tomplatcd in the original plan. Some ol it is already in place , wliilo the rest has been delayed on the road. Mr. House however , has decided not to open the bridge to the public until this safoguart lias boon constructed. A Well Known Man Gone. Bernard Farrel , a resident of this city for fifteen years , during the greater part of which time ho was chock clerk for the Union Pacific , died Thursday night at8IK : o'clock at his residence 12.20 South Four teenth street. Ho was a mombar of As sembly 3123 K. of I.I. , and widely ami favorably known throughout the oity. Ho will bo buried to-morrow m llolj Sepulchre cemetery. Siilui ; a Unilroad.

Professor Palmer , the Omaha mind reader , is fast becoming expert in Ins work. Yesterday he gave an exhibition > oforo Messrs. Knglo , Uussol ) and Officer ulaskl. The latter wrote a word in Gor- nan and then Palmer taking I'ulaskl's land retraced the word exactly as the officer had written. Ho was of conrso blindfolded when he did this. This test vas especially wonderful as Palmer can leither speak , read nor write thu Gor- nan language. "The Rood sense displayed by most of our workmen who are now engaged and vho have refused to take part in a gen eral strike , is to bo commended , " said a nerchant yesterday. "I know that at- empts have been made to stop business icro , and 1 know also that it has been lone in some cases by men who have not ; ot one dollar'o interest m this city. It s too much to expect that Omaha should ) o Injured because of such people , and I hink our mechanics dc-orvo credit in deciding to attend to their own bust- icss. " * * * The amateurs who were "awaiting tlio erdict" at tlio opera house Thursday light have been doomed to die. Consid ering the offence the punishment is light. Omaha is to have a dime museum , It is said. It will bo located in the old city Kill building. The lire department and police depart- iiont are about ready to move Into their icw quarters in the annex to the oxposi- .ion building. The basement is to bo oc cupied by the police court and jail , mllonkamw's ruling school has been noved to a tent pitched two blocks way The "Odds and Ends" man is in pos session of the details of a salacious sen sation which concerns two young people if this qity , one of whom at least is well known , lie is a young man a dry goods clerk and something of a dude. Ho was athor smitten with a young lady who lives near llanscom park , and she well she rather reciprocated. Hut it's all over now. The other night ho * called up ' jy telephone a woman'in a house of rather questionable repute. He got the correct number , as ho supposed , and a feminine voice , which ho presumed to bo .hat of the girl ho wanted , an swered him. Ho invited her to K" out to the Koail house with him that light , and as she didn't seem to accept ils invitation cheerfully , ho fired a vol- ey of language at her which will hardly bear reproducing in cold print. This ends chapter I , Chapter II is very brief. The tele phone operator had given thoyoung man v wrong number and ho had been talking with the young lady of his adoration , whoso father happened to have a tele- ; ) hone at his residence. Hut they don't speak now cither by telephone or other wise. And it was all the operator's fault. The Merelmntu' Corner-Stone. Workmen are now engaged m laying ho first course over the basement , of the rich brown stone which is to form the main lloor of the Merchants' National bank building. It has a dull red appear ance and is brought hero from Long Meadow , Mass. The corner-stone of the bank was laid yesterday without cere mony , and this morning a workman was engaged cutting the hole in which is to1" be placed tlio iron box which is to con tain souvenirs of the tune and circum- stanco. The box will bo six inches wide , six inches long and nine inches deep. IlUAh INSTATE. Transfers Filed May 12 , 1887.
