Yesterday morning three little boys , Joseph , .John and Thomas Finley , were before Judge Aylesworth. They gave their ages as 11 , ( J and 7 years. The httlo follows seemed intelligent , honest boys , who had boon more used to the farm than the city. They told a very straight for ward story to the olleetthat their home was in Hawlins , Wyo. Their father died two years ago , and the following year their mother followed him. They were then taken care of by their uncle , who oc- cnuicd the house which belonged to their father. After a time ho secured for thorn n homo with a woman , living about fif teen miles from Kansas City. This woman was a school teacher , and the uncle was to nay | 15 a month for caring tor the boys. When school closed she told the boys that she should not keep thorn any longer , and the supposition is that the undo did not pay for their care as ho promised to. The woman started the boys out , refusing to longer shelter them. They started out without money or ftlends , and worked their way to St. Joseph easily , simply taking the train and the kindly hearted conductors letting thorn ride. They got out at St. Joe and walked for quite a distance , past several stations , getting slenp wherever they could ar.d begging food. They then got on a train and were allowed to como hero. Thov want to get back to their uncle , and the city martial Is trying to provide some way for them to resume their journey. 1'acilie house is the nearest hotel to the majority of real estate ollices in the city ; fa pur day. _ At the Pacific house vou will save from BOo to ? 1 per day.

A BIG BRACE FOR THE BRIDGE CLo Work Ordered to Oommince at Once and the Material on the RAPID SALE OF LANGTRY TICKETS Hotel Mnnnua Still In Court Con stable Fox Heats the County Xlic Cliiuitiiiuiiin Death of Mrs. Judge Itccil. III" rtrld-jo Work. What about the bridge ? The monotony of tint question , and the silence which has followed , is broken by the' announcement that the work is to commence at once. The contractors for .he sub-structure , Hopkins & Scully of St. Louis , are the largest and most responsible of any in tins line in the whole country. Their machinery and at- plhinces for the work nro very expensive. They have refused at least one big con tract , while waiting for the work here to be ordered , and now their confidence in tin ) enterprise is confirmed by their being given orders to commence in accordance with their contract. The following tele gram was received Irom them yesterday by the chief engineer of the bridge com pany. St. Louis July 27 , ISST. Frank Moore , Chief Engineer : in compliance with tele- f ram liom your company wo will ship plant for substructure ot your bridge at onco.Vo conwUtiliitn Minut'r ; Uv.uis lor Ins I'lieno" In overcoming so many obstacles , and issu- ItiKMi early nn order ler staitini : the work. Hopkins .V .Scully. Ilie plant is expected to arrive now at any linn1. It wi.l _ bo shipped direct to Omaha , as the heaviest work is to bo on the Nebraska side , and that will bo com menced Ural. All doubts about the bridge are now removed , and the actual work of construction will soon bo visible to the eyes of those of little faith. It is believed that the work of the substructure will bo completed before the 1st of Jan uary , , and the entire bridge will bo done l > y the 1st of May next. The contractors Forfeit if 100 a day for every day beyond that time. There have been some doubts about the paving of Broadway. While the council lias been doubting a little about the bridge being started , the bridge folks have been indulging in about the sanio amount of doubt about the council or dering the paving of Uroadway to the riyur. The council has been telling the bridge company to commence their work and then the city would commence pav ing. The bridge folks have been urging the city council to commence naving , and that they would by that time com mence the work on the bridge. The council has become satisfied that the bridge is going rifclit ahead , and so have irdered Uroadway paved to the river. The advertisements will soon bo made 'or bids , and it is claimed that when the street is in condition for paving the work can be done in sixty da > s. There is no loubt but that the paving will be all in jcfore the bridge is ready to be used. There was much jubilancy here yester day among these who learned of the x'iogram ( .MVCII above. While there has been general confidence that the bridge would bo built , yet there was a great inxiety to know that the work was under way. ' 1 ho decision ort the bridge question was not received until the fith of July. After its rcceint there were some legal [ mints on which opinions had to bo ob- .aineci , in order to bo sure they were right before going ahead ; there were modifications to be made in the contracts and considerable pin nning and figuring to bo done , and yet with only about three weeks having passed the order goes forth Tor the contractors to commence work , and the shipment of material begins. Those who have been grumbling about .ho slowness of the bridge company must 'eel ' a little ashamed now. Rush for Liiuif try Tickets. The announcement that Langtry is to jo at the opera house Friday night caused n rush for tickets , the like of which has not boon seen in this city since the opera house was completed. The sale began at ! ) o'clock yesterday morn ing at ISushnoll's , and although at half past eight there were only four district telegraph boys and two or three citizens waiting , before the hour was struck the line reached the full length of the store , and out into Pearl street. They kept com ing and the line waskopttoagood length for much of the forenoon. Some wlio bought tickets had a chauco to speculate a little by disposing of their tickets at u slight advance to those who did not want to stand and wait their turn. The pros pect is tli lit the opera house will bo crowded to its full capacity. There is great curiosity felt to see this remarka ble woman , this being the first opportun ity allbrded many of the residents of this city , she never having been hero beforo. A few seats are still loft , but all of the more desirable ones are already taken. The llotot Troubles. The case of Long vs Clark , in regard to the appointment of a receiver for the Hotel Manawa was argued yesterday at- tornoon. The financial showing was n cu rious one and to the effect that the hotel was built without any capital to speak of , and while the receipts have apparently been very largo , yet the debts have not apparently diminished. The tauglo is a bad one , but it is hoped by all that some arrangement may speedily bo made by which the hotel may bo properly con ducted. It is needed at the lake , and the demand for a good hotel , well handled , will doubtless bo soon met. While the furniture and fixtures were being taken out of the hotel by these who hold mortgages on the property , there seems to have been a general raid. It is said that some of the waiters , who had not been paid for thirty days , tried to get even by taking such loose pronortv as came to their hand. Others having claims against Clark took what they got hold of llrst. It is claimed that about f 100 worth of silverware disap peared , and the whereabouts cannot bo ascertained. Clark had three suits of clothes which he can find no trace of , and the supposition is that in the rush for assets some one carried those oil' . Mr. Clark was as smiling as over yes terday. Ho scomcu confident that ar rangements would bo completed in a day or two by which the hotel would bo run ning in bettor shape than evor. He is of a sanguine mako-up and sees no clouds. * Fox Win JIU Suit. Colonel John Fox has been serving as special constable in a number of cases , but the county board concluded to cut down the bill for fees. His claim amounted to about if 11 , and the board only allowed him | 13. Ho commenced suit in the supreme court , and after the taking of much evidence , and the mak ing of long arguments , a decision was reached yesterday afternoon. Judge Aylesworth rendered a judgment in the favor ot the constable for fi. This with the $13 admitted by the county board brings his allowance up to within a few dollars of the total claim. Judge Aylos- worth ruled that the justice must give a written authority for a special constable to servo warrants , or perform other service , This written authority was not given in the serving of some subpumas , and hence thu fees for this sarvico wore disallowed by the court. There was also 1 for tele graphing which the court did not allow in tUe judgment , Under the ruling in this case it will bo necessary for a justice to give the constable a written order to serve papers if the special constable ex pects to collect his fees from the .county. The similar case of .Justice Schurz against the county for fees has been con tinued until Monday. A Ch.iutntiqttn , Under Wny. The preliminary work of establishing a Chautatiqua assembly in Council Bluffs lias been begun. The organisation has boon perfected , officers selected for the ensuing year and articles of incorpora tion drawn up , The question of a loca tion Is being considered now. Two sites are being discussed. Ono Is near Parks' mill , the other at Glendalo. There are over one hundred acres in each , and that Is about the quantity of ground needed. It is the intention to enclose and im prove the grounds this fall and to hold the lirsl assembly next summer. There arc many to whom the details of these assemblies are wholly unknown. Hence there is some difficulty in awakening the interest which the magnitude of the en terprise merits. The start has been made by some of the most prominent and in- lliiential citi/.ens , and they enter upon it with so much enthusiasm that the com munity at , large will sneodily bo awak ened to the realization of its importance mill benclits. The purpose of the assem bly is to instruct and entertain along thu line of morals , literature , science and art. Instructors , lecturers , musicians , artists , etc. , will bo secured , and during the as sembly each day will have special attrac tions , and each evening there will bo some meritorious entertainment. It is the intention to make but nominal charg es for the privileges of the grounds , so that all can easilv afford to attend. The necessary receipts to meet expenses will bo secured from individual mites gath ered from multitudes of people. It is confidently predicted that there will bo drawn tu this city the very first assembly 50,000 persons. Extensive grounds are needed , so that those attending can bo accommodated with tenting ami boarding privileges , if they desire. A largo ampitheiiter is to be built , with a capacity of 10,000 people , and several smaller halls and buildings will needs bo erected for the classes and for various purposes. These assemblies in other places are proving verv success ful and enjoyable. Notably so"at Crete , Neb.where an assembly has been held for ten days , and there was on no day less than 10,000 people in attendance. A letter from Ottawa , Kan. , states that the .rate receipts alone at the assembly there this year amounted to $12,000. With the wonderful advantages afforded by this city , the extensive network of railways , suitable and picturesque grounds , with two great cities from which to draw for support , it seems that the assembly here will prove a wonderful success. It will help the community morally , intellectually and financially. The subscriptions for stock will now bo gathered in , and it is believed that the enterprise will meet with a cordial , gen erous support. The sites being I'onsid- ered are within easy reach of the city , and a motor line will bo doubtless built : o thorn , as soon as the success of the en terprise becomes apparent. Dcnth of Airs. Juilco Ilccil , The announcement of the death of Mrs. J. It. Reed , whoso husband is one of the supreme bench of the state , will 301110 to most as no surprise. She has been a great sutforor for many years , a cancer having.taken a malignant hold up on her , and gradually sapping her life day by day. She has been attended by the most skillful physicians , and most tenderly cared for , but all without avail. Shesulforcd at times terribly , and the surely approaching end was a deep and continual shadow upon the homo whore such tender and loving relationships existed. So long and so greatly had she suffered , and without hope , that death was almost a relief. She was conscious to the last. and passed away surrounded by her friends and rela tives. She was a woman who was greatly beloved by those who had the pleasure of association with' her. Her life had for years been necessarily more retired than that of others , btit throughout the community there has always been maintained an active inter est in her condition , and the tenderest sympathy has boon felt and expressed for her. This sympathy now is doubly revived and centered on the worthy hus band , upon whom the blow comes with peculiar weight. Judge Rccd came to this city with his wife shortly after the close ot the war In which ho took so gal lant a part. Ho practiced law until placed upon the district bench , and then promoted to the supreme bench. No couple in this city have been moro esteemed , and there is general sorrow that the tender ties between the devoted pair have been so broken. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family residence , No.107 Glen avenue. WOLF BOYS. Pine Specimen of One AVIio Was Found In Inrtln. Chambers' Journal : In the wild glens through which the river Gumti rushes down into the Gauges , wolves are still common , and they frequently carry oil' children of the town and villages. The Hindus are withheld by supcr.itition ftom killing these animals within the prccints of their own habitations , for they believe tint a village in which oven a drop of wolf's blood has been shed is doomed to destruction by lire and sword. The con sequence is that , in spite of the rewards oflored by the government for the heads of these animals many victims are still year after year devoured by wolves in India. In the town of Sultanporq there was shown a boy , who in his habits and general appearance borothc | most wonder ful resemblance to a wolf. Ho had been found crawling on all fours , in the com pany of a wolf and her three cubs , which had como down to the river to drink. Since his capture ho made ropeatcd attempts to escape. Cooked nie.tt ho rejected with gestures of loathing and abhorrence ; but when ho was oflored raw meat ho de voured it with avidity. Ho would allow dogs to share his meal , but if approached by human beings at such a time ho would growl in a threatening manner. When ho saw children ho would rush at them. The lad was subsequently received into the house of Captain Niehollette , of the First Oude Infantry regiment. Under the kindly care of this gentleman ho lost some of his ferocity , and was broken of his habit of biting. He also learned to eat cooked food , though he still continued to prefer raw meat. He was very fond of bones , which ho could crunch like a dog. When food was given to him , he would run up to it on all fours and devour it urcedily , nulling it about and tearing it in a wolf like fashion. His voracity was all but unappeasable. Ho would eat half a lamb at a uical , wash u down with u vast quantity of butter milk , and then swallow some clay and small stones. Children of his own ago he would hare nothing to do with ; Ins favorite playfellows were a small pariah dog and some jackals. These animals hau to bo shot , as they helped themselves too freely to the food which had been placed for the boy. Their death did not , however , seem to give him concern , clothes bo could not endure , and ho im patiently tore them off , even in the se verest weather , A mattress stuffed with cotton was given him to sleep on , but ho tore it UP and swallowed the cotton with his bread. Ho never spoke a word till a few minutes before his death , which took place m bis twelfth year , after a short illness. Just as ho was about to breathe his last some reminiscence of his early childhood seemed to como back to him. He put his baud to his bead , said that it hurt Inm , asked for water und then died. * f REAL ESTATE , Vncnnt Lots , Land3 , City Itceldonccs unit I'lirms. Aero property In western part of city.
