. THOffS ITS MASTER'S CRIB. The Burlington & Missouri Kailroad Organ nt Lincoln Again Heard From , BILLINGS AND HIS MISSION. .Trainmen Peel CcrtnIn llml tlio Opcr- ntor nt llavclock AVns ItcHponslble Tor tlio Disaster Tlicro News ' From tlio State Capital , frnoM TIIK HUE'S I.IXCOLN nunnAu.l Tlio editor of the Journal , who bore fnlso witness against the cntlro city of Lincoln in his long dissertation on tlio Ii. & M. ns n public benefactor , in which ho stated that it had given Lincoln all it naked in rates , IB apparently suffering from another atUck of liver complaint. The well worn pud has evidently shifted from the position where it Is usually worn nnd seems to irritate him. The editor of tlio Journal was as quiet ns a clam when all its fulsome flattery follow ing Manager lloldrcgo's visit to Lincoln on the rate question was exposed and the gall has entered his soul evidently that ho flhould bo caught up and htve : no grounds for an answer. Now , however , in sup port of its iibslstant editor nnd special protege in the person of ono Hillings , the Journal's wrath breaks forth that it should bo criticised when it lets this asso ciate editor have full swing in manifest attempts to belittle the live stock com mission. The facts in the matter , nsoverv reasonable man knows thimi to be , are that the regent * of the university have Been lit to employ this man Billings as an experimenter on animal discuses. Ono ot the regents asborttimosinre expressed the belief that it was n useless expundi- i turo , but the expense is made however. There would be no criticism now , but it _ is a notorious fact that nil through the ' full and winter months this man has had . full swing of the Journal in that wliich I has boon considered an assault on the < commission nnd veterinarian. It ceased J for awhile , but has evidently broken out ! again in the Texas fever trouble at Teka- j inah. The state has appropriated ? 00 , ( > 00 ( for the work of the live stock commission | for the coming two years , and much is ! expected and ought to be scoured from them. Sowing seeds of discord through travels on alleged investigations are not in order , nnd the experimental luxury provided by the regent's primarily , and us associate editor on the Journal second ary , in no way helps to slump out the trouble by breeding discord. The editor of the Journal should muzzle bis assooi * ate and return to songs of praise for the 1) . & M. , for which his voice is especially tuned. THE UEST YET. The wide awake city of Kearney , that is attracting such general attention al the present time , Is to have n grand atie < tion sale of city lots Friday , July ' _ " . ) , the lots being tlio entire Monroe and Wiley's addition to Kearney. This is witout dis pute the grandest of all sub divisions platted and added to that city the prcs ent year and needs only to bo seen to bu appreciated. It contains eighty bcatiti ful lots on the northe.isl of the city propei and is easy of access to the business parl of the place. The street car line now under contract will within sixty days be running regular cars to the addition , Excellent juduos of city property it : Kearny do not hc&itato to say that withic sixty ( fays these lots will double in value and that the opportunity for investmeni nnd to make money is at tlio present time. The lots are full si/.e , high , drj and handsomely locatt d and but a ver , } few blocks from the business center o : city. A number of capitalists in Omah : nnd Lincoln arc interesting thomsolvei in Kearney and will be present at tin Balo. Parties attending and buying lot ; will have their railroad faro to tin sale deducted providing their purchasi price is more than $100. There will bi excursion rates on all railroads leadinj. to the city , and ample accommodation ! will bo provided for the visitors. The * promoters of the sale in fact want pcoplt to go and look at the city on the day o Falo whether thov purchase or not , The terms of sale on those lots are ono third cash and the balance on one , lw < nnd three years nt 10 per cent interest There will be no postponement of thi sale , and Messrs. G. C. Pace and lien. U Khodos , the Lincoln auctioneers , wll make the sale. There will be a pavillioi erected on the ground and n band o music. For any additional particular the projectors refer to W. ( } . Albright , a Omatia , and Colonel Ily do , of Lincoln. OK OMi : OMNIUM. There is but one opinion among train men and engineers in regard to th recent llavolook wreck nnd that is thn the responsibility rested with the operate or the dispatcher and not with the in gineer. A good si/od volumn could b Idled with tliu reasons advanced nn they are practically export testimony fo if any class of railroad men understaiv signals it i.s the trainmen. One advance thu opinion that the order was given wren from Lincoln , that it was attempted t bo rcctilied at llavclock but that th operator did not awaKcn until the engin j , passed. In fact the statement is mad that the day after the wreck the operate admitted to one of the under ollleials a llavolock station that ho was nslee when the train reached there. These at nfti-r statements that may be given weigl or not , but it remains certain that th boys who run on the road were of on opinion and they nave that opinio positively. IIU1KK ITUMS.

Russell Clifford , a Shattuck street jeweler nt Lowell , has boon arrested charged with stealing large quantities of electricity from * the local telephone ex change. The first offense , it is set forth , was committed by tapping the wires of the telephone company , and the next by tampering with the company's meter. For some months the local managers of the telephone company were convinced Hint many were using the wires without paying rental , but the inspectors and clerks were unable to detect thorn. Cllfl'ord , who was de tected fourteen months ago tap ping the wires of the company on Shat tuck street , was one of those suspected and stories were told the oftcials that ho was running an independent telephone enterprise. On a recent stormy evening one of the operators discovered that her wire had been crossed in ft peculiar man ner. She also found that siic was talk ing with fltrangn persons who wore not egular subscribers. The fact was re- orted at headquarters , and the tolo- hone ollicers have over sineo been ivestigating the case. It was not until JlilTbrd's however that the - nrrpst , , mys- cry was solved. From an investigation hen inado the telephone olUcials become onvinccd that Ulillbrd obtained some telephones formerly used byV. . N , S.

[ Correspondence of the UEE. ] McCool Junction docs not enjoy the dis tinction of being the third city in size In the state , nor does It expect to bo the center of nil the railroads In the state. Neither Ihc car shops of the 1) ) . & M. rail road nor the Missouri Pacific have been located hero. Neither docs she expect to eclipse Hastings nnd Lincoln m a short time. Without these glowing advantages held out by nearly every town in the state what will McCool Junction amount to ? To answer this its location must first be detcribcd. McCool Junction was platted this spring by the Kansas City & Omaha railroad. It lies midway between York and Krirmont in the southeastern half of York county , sixty miles west of Lincoln. The Kansas City & Omaha railroad forms a junction right hero giving shippers three different routes , 0110 to the north nnd northwest , toOmatni and Chicago , one south to Kansas City and St. Lout.s , and the other west to lliihtings sind Denver. McCool is , strictly speaking , a railroad center and town. It ia named ufler 1) . McCool , manager of he Kansas City & Omaha railroad , and wing to its superior location them is ivory reason to believe it will be the livniou station of this road. It is eerlain the 15. &M. void will make a junction right here , llight of way and grade stakes have been partially bought ind sot from Milfovd hero. From here hey will build a line to Aurora and one louth to Fairmont. Situated by tne side of the Dig Hlue river in the valley of the iMuo in the midst of a vast growth ot tall , shady .roes . , here is one of nature's finest and > est summer resorts.Vc are pleased to tear that the citizens and the Kansas 3ity & Omaha ollicials are contemplating clearing and modelling the groves so that McCool will bo the finest summer resort n the state. Splendid boating , good lish- .nc . and plenty of game in season will make this place very popular. The pop ulation of McCool is now in the neigh borhood of 300. There are now about twenty business houses representing dif ferent lines of business. Last Monday a train load of cattle and hogs were shipped from this place. Thousands of bushels of grain have been bought here this sum mer. McCool is situated in the center of Ihe richest nud most productive and iipst thickly populated agricultural dis trict in the state. The surrounding torri- lory can support a city of S.OOOmhabitanls. Any manufacturer desiring a location can have one at McCool , where he can got all the water power necessary. Jt nr.iv he stated here thai tlio Hluu is capable ol furnishing enough wafer power to run fifty factories. A good stock of furni ture is wanted nt McCool. A good dry goods merchant can find a splendid open- ng horo. MeCool has no stock of cloth- ng. Those wlio are looking for a loc-a- ion can rust assured that no town in the state can show a livlier class of businos * nen and residents , or more natural ad1 vantages than McCool J unction. Hancrofi'N Prosperity. BvxcitOKr , Neb. , July 23. [ Cor respondence of the liii : : . ] linncroft tas a phenomenal thing to report. If has no boom , but since the first tract ol 0,000 acres of Indian laud was thrown opun to general purchasers at appraiser valuation , it has steadily improved ir population and investments until at pres ent a more thrifty town cannot bo fount n Nebraska. This 50,000 aero tract has since its settlement three years ago , beer followed by another of 5,001) ) acres , one tenth the size of the former , but settled by an equally industrious and cnterpria ing class of farmers. By careful investi gation wo find that the thirty-ono farm comprising this ( i.OOO acres have now ai actual valuation each of $3,400 , exclusivi of the land itself. The old reservation as the lirst , or 50,00'J-acro tract is nov called , is entirely occupied by whites the Indians being entirely excluded. 15ti among the farms of the last opnnpi many belong to Indians. These diflV only from Ihoso farmed by thuir whit neighbors in the amount cultivated , n they cultivate not more than thirly-liv acres in all , which is called n sad wast of good land by those who only wait ai opportunity to grasp the last of the fev remaining acres loft the red men. A drive over the old reservation by ai eastern resident , would bo an entiles succession of ucrpriscs if he knew tha uulil five ycors ago every foot of thi land was absolute waste without a civil ized habitation within its borders. Whil now as compared with the olir.sc.tllcinon which has actually been occupied snvei teen years , it has a much finer cla-ss c buildings , more timber , land in a hiche state of ctiltivatson , more r.nd bette roads , more school houses , a creamer , company with a Chicago firm as the or ganizers , and stockholders composed o citizens with neighboring farmers , is n last organized , nnd without doubt is enl the beginning of more enterprises of lik beneficial character lo all.

AHAM03A , la. , July 21. [ Special to the About six weeks ago the Iron bridge across \Vapslplnlcan river nt this place was destroyed by n herd of cattle. The board of supervisors of Jones county nt once advertised for bids for u now bridge , nnd among them were two bids : one from the Milwaukee Bridge company for f3,000 , nnd one from the Shcflcnl company , of Pltlsburg , for $5,250 , nnd for some reason the bid was let to the highest bidder. It soon became noised around that the successful bridge company had mil up a job on the county , and fooled with some other bidders for the job. So the county repudiated the contract nnd let It yesterday to the Milwaukee company for fJ,000 ! , nnd the SholTurd company has notified the county that they arc constructing the bridge according to con tract , nnd shall expect the company to take it. There are lively times abroad , and it Is supposed the fall campaign in thls'county will bo fouplit mainly on this point.

A.s the deficit in the appropriation for the crim inal insane department is nothing mar velous , il could scarcely bo brought with in the pale of the purposes of the provi dential fund.

The man who has stuck to Lcadvillo- writes a correspondent of the St. Lou'n Globe-Democrat with nevor-failiujrfaitl is Tabor , llo came in with the excite ment of 18GO , when California Gulch wai disclosing its millions of nuggets am dust. Just too latu lo secure ono of the bundred-feet strips of the narrow ravim for himself , Tabor contracted his muscle to an earlier coiner at sf.j a day am shoveled pay dirt into a sluice. Onto the millions taken from the gulch duriiif. 1600 and 'Cl , his share was enough t < stock a little store In the then llourishin ; oily of Ore , Loadvillo'a predecessor. There Tabor slaid and sold Hour ant bacon and picks and frying-pans to the miners year after year. Ho saw the cit ; of 7,000 people dwindle lo seventy in llu course of the ten years following the war but ho never thought of leaving. Whei tlio few houses remaining wore knockei down and hauled n milo or two up tin gulch to a more convenient locatioi Tabor went with them and kept 01 dealing out "grub" at modest profits When times were particularly dull Mrs Tabor No. 1 , now living in Denver am enjoying her share of the fortune alone look in boarders. The slory that sh took in washing is pronounced a lattci day fiction by the old-limers. WHO NAMED TIIU CAMP. At length came the realization of th carbonate wealth bullion in these hill.- Where Ore had been established in 18C Lcndvillo was laid out in 1878. Tabo was on deck. The all-important qucs tion arose , "What shall we name the nc\ city ? " Some wanted "Harrison" chosei in iipnor of Mr. Kdward Harrison of St Louis , who was n leading spirit hero ii tliu early days , lint Tabor said "Leai ! ville , " and "headvillo" she became , oil of defcronco to the sugcestion of the old cst inhabitant. Even in thin period of new oxcilcmen Tabor's head was not turned from hi routine of storukeoping. His trad boomed naturally with the growth of tli camp , which added to its population a many as 500 in a day during the bi < rush. Lawyers , gamblers , overybod Hocked to Iho hills nnd laid out claim nnd slramcd their backs at the pick an Ihe windlass. Tab r was not so carriei away. Ho stood behind the counter am weighed out the bacou and the meal "Ho was a stoady-colng you might sa Clodding storekeeper/ the ilescrii | tion given by the pioncurd. "That wa all there was to him. Nobody eve thought of him as a mining man. ' ' oiiuii STAKE VEyruuus. Occasionally the impecunious pros pcctor came to ISibor with a propositio for a "grub stake. " .The storokcope usually Jell ! with thevsuggcation , an weighed Iho supplies. The mine shouldered Iho pack anju went over th hill. And Tabor ontertjd up so man pounds of bacon and so many pounds d Hour to profit and loss. How many mi JUTS Tabor lias "grub staked" in his tiui Lcadvillo does not pretend to sav. Prol ably the number U well along in Iho hui druds. It ever anything came of thi "grub staking" for neatly twenty yean no record has been kept of the fac But Tabor accumulated a few thousand and a good name during this ploddin period of his life. No ill word is spoke of him .s a storekeeper. One day a man named llischo made th nsnal credit arrangement witn Tabor to "grub , " nud walked up the hill as G many others had dona before him an went to work. Ho came down town c evenings and got a tailor interested wit him in the prospect. This tailor W George Hook , who , after listening t lUsche's speculations about the cluin chucked his goose under the table , fo lowed the miuer up the hill and went t work at the shaft. For some time Tabor would have assigned that "grub st.iko" cluim for fifty cents on the dollar , and George Hook secretly regretted the day he left th bench to become n mining man. THE rtOMAXCE OF LITTI.r. riTTSUL'tiO. Bui the lime came when two of the partners sold out their thirds for 100,000 apiece , while Tabor , true to his character for hanging on , staid in and saw that claim yield $8,000 a day.half of which lie put in his pocket as Iho interest on his "grub stake" principal. This is the romance of the Little Pitts- burg. Klsche , Hook and Tabor , the dead-broke prospector , the tailor nnd the plodding storekeeper were made famous nnd rich in a single day. The ellcct of this sudden lean into fortune was strik ingly different In each case. Hischo speedily plunged his $100,000 into other mining ventured nnd ran through it. Hook prudently invested his ? 100,000 in bonds , 4 per cents for the most part , moved to Denver , got a comfortable homo and enjoys life , ctitfing ofl' the coupons pens as the months roll by and living within his income , with n margin sulli- cient to Help Kiscbo out of a tight place whenever the latlordraws.outhostreiigth of the old partnership. TAHOK'S NEW LIFE. As for Tabor , the ploddinc storekeeper became another man entirely. Ho and Jerome B. Chalice held on to "Little Pitts- burg until it yielded $8,000 a day. Then they stocked it. One day when they had just received returns from the latest ship ment to the smelter and wuro sitting in the back room of the bank , Tabor said to ChallVoWU : stock this miun for ? 10flOO,000. " "Oh , no , " protested ChafTeo , "that's too much. Make it sJJ.OOO.OOO or some thing reasonable , like that. " "Come to think of it , though,1' said Tabor , paying no attention to the inter ruption , " 1 believe we'll make it 11,000,000. " And they did. The 200.000 shares of ? 10 ( > par value were issued and climbed until they reached ? 35 , representing a capital of ? 7,000V000. And then Tabor showed that besides possessing a capac ity for holding on , ho knew when to let go. Telling people plainly that while Little Pitthlmrg was a great mine he didn't believe it was a fair equivalent for that valuation , ho lot go of his stock. There were plenty of talicrs , for the re ports made by experts could not have been more glowing if the whole Fryer hill was solid silver. Little Pittsburg was a grand pro.lueor for awhile , and has yielded $7,000,000 , just 100 per cent on the investment represented by the stock nt $30 a share. Hut the datu of the last dividend is ominous March , 1880. CHICKEN 1111.1 , . In four inonthf Tabor made out ot .itllo Pittsburg fl,300,000. But his luck lidn't stop there. There used to bo a character in Leadvillo known as Chicken Sill. His mother knew him as William > ovell. Before the Lradville discovery or excitement Mr. Lovull was a mail car rier in the mountains , and did a little ox- ; ) reas business. Ono winter day two anin chickens wore confided to Mr. Lovoll for delivery at a certain mining camp. On the way the carrier was storm-bound for two or three da.ys , and when he got to the end of llio route ho lad nothing bul the feathers to show for lis way-bill , llo hud eaten the fowls. Kvor after that he was known as Chicken Bill , and while liie.ro is no dillieulty in identifying him in the history of Load- villo as Chicken Hill , very few men hero remember him as Mr. Lovell. Chicken Hill took up a claim on 1'rvor 11111 and worked it industriously for some weeks. But after the shaft got down to such a depth that it was quite tiresome to haul the dirt up in a bucket , he became disgusted. In the language of Leadrille , "he hadn't a smell of ore. " In a condition of mind wliich obliterated his moral sense as completely as the snow drifts made it casv for him to de vour another man's chickens , Hill lefl his shaft ono night and walked down tin hill. HOW CIIUYSOLtTT. WAS SALTED. _ As ho came to George Fryer's New Discovery mine his eyes fell on some very good ore which had just been taker out. Hill looked around. That was before fore the days of watchmen nt the dump ! nnd when nil Leadville was supposed if bo honest. Bill gathered up a lot of ore what he could carry comfortably.walkei hack to his shatt and threw Ihe chunk.- in. Then he went down town in a vcrj good humor. The next morning brigh and early ho was down his pliaft pound iug away among the rocks. About nooi ho went down town and lold Tabor am others that ho had "struck it" at last Tabor , Hushed with his Little Pitlsburf experience , was Ihcn on the lookout fo : everything , and ho sent a man up to sei what Chicken Bill bad got. The invest ! gutor came Imck and reported "sevcra inches of nice-looking ore in sight. ' Tabor asked Bill what he wanted for hi tind , and Bill said lu > owed $100 fo "grub , " which must be wiped out. nm on top of thai he wanted $ .v. ) for spend ing money. Tabor paid $ ICO and tool possession. He sank that salted .shut live feet from where Bill had sloppci nnd struck ore which yielded eve $1,000,000. ONT TiMU TAHOK'S JUDGMENT K.UI.EP. This is the romance of thetliscovury o the Chrysolite. Chicken Bill couldn' stand it. Prosperity by proxy WIIH toi much for him. Ho told the whole stor ; on himself. Chicken Bill's claim am lho = o which the Chrysolite Mining com piny consolidated with it have yioldot s450,000 : ! , but no dividends have beei paid since December , 1884. This wa another mine which Tabor stocked on i scale largo enough to let everybody in but in this case he did not recognize tin time to let co. Chrystolito was made ti carry 200.000 shares , with ? ; > 0 as the pa value. The stock went up fitcadily boosted by the enormous product , for : timo. It touched $40. Tabor said : " believe it will go to ? 50. Then I'll un load. " Ho was mistaken. Ifhchad.solt at * 10 he would have realized $7,000,000 He let his shares go at considerable loss but when he balanced accounts the ? 15 paid to Chicken Bill wasn't worth men tionmg beside the seven figures whicl represented Tabor's prolits. iiiKSTouvor TIII : M\Tonus3. : Chicken Bill wasn't the ouly _ man win thought he had "played it lino'1 on Tabo and realized afterwards thai the stori ; keeper had the besl cud of the bargain Tlio Matchless was another illustralioi of Titlor's wonderful luck.

They in turn sold out to an English syn dicate for $200,00. Hut the Englishman "beelVd" so vigorously that the sellers took tlio property back , and now it ranks as one of the best in the camp , and couldn't ' be bought for $2,000,000. No body knows just what Tabor's Interest is , qut ho does not control. The ruling spirit in the company is Mofl'att , the Den ver banker. If Tabor had stopped with those four ventures he would bo to-day the bonau/a king of Loadvillo. If ho had put the ag gregate of those winnings into 4 per cent bonds , as his old "erub stake" nart- tier did with the Little Pittsburg strike , he would bo ouo of the wealthiest men in the west. 15ut Tabor kept right on turn ing his money over and over. Ho turned it so fast that it not only gained nothing " > ut dropped oil rapidly. Some of his iiimcnso fortune went back into Lead- iile hills. Some went into the most do- usivo of speculations grand opera ouscs ono here and ouo in Denver , xtmo went into thu Fifth avcutio hotel , lore disappeared in South America , 'mbroidorcd night-shirts anil big diamonds mends absorbed their share of profits.

Ho has lost icavily m his numerous ventures , but hero are few men in Lcadvillo who wouldn't trade oven to-day for what labor IIP.S got left. "Huh ! " om > of them said , "I wish I was as near broke sis Tabor is. " The losses have not boon without their .osson to the once lucky investor , lie lus stopped indulging in nil sorts of speculations ' 'on sight and unseen , " as 10 bought mines in the early days , nnd is devoting himself largely to the rearing of a young and interesting family , llo comes to Letulville occasionally for n few days on business , but spends most of his time in Denver. Ills mining prop erty here returns him steadily from $10,000 to $15,009 n month , an lied scorns to Imvo given up all idea of splurg ing as a speculator. In short , Tabor is now living his third life. First he was the plodding storekeeper on California ( Julch from 1800 to 1807. Then for near ly a decade ho was the during specula tor , ready to invest in any proposition from Alaska to Patagonia , da//.ling com mon folks with diamonds nnd embroid ered night shirts. And now he is a model old man of retiring manners , with a , couple of babies who arc the apples ot liis oyc , looking after the InimLsomo remnants of a once colossal fortune , and one of the most considerate men to those associated with him in business. He loaves his interests in the hands of others , save as regards general direc tions. Whatever the rest of the world may say , Lcadvillo 1ms only one kindly recollection of Tabor.
