LINCOLN NEEDS MORE WATER The Oity ii How Practically at the Mercy of Fires. DISTRICT COURT DOINGS. Two Hnannnds Charge Their Wives With Uniliitirul Conduct nnd Ask For IJOB | HRpnratlon The liberty Camp Tiro. frnoit Tirr. IIF.E'S uxcor.x IIUBBAU.I 'What the city of Lincoln needs Is moro water nnd that speedily. The council has been figuring on an increased supply nnd the entire city Is clamoring for It and yet the famine continues. The lire de partment has urged , In reports , the dan gers engendered by delay and the coir- nion impression is that Uio Humphrey block could have been saved nt the recent fire If a proper water supply had been available. The engineer at the city well lias repeatedly called attention to thn scarcity , and the use of water on lawns has been curtailed and yet the supply Is wholly Insulllciont. It is the opinion of both the engineer nt the water works and the chief of the lire department that a lire occurring between Op. m.anJ mid night would , have practical control of itself and the department bo handicapped in Its workings. While the present dry eeason continues tlio parties who have purchased water for lawn privileges will use it , and , judging from reports , the supply is not Millicicnt for lire purposes nlonc. There is nothing that demands the undivided attention of the council 'more ' than the water question and the city.is not exempt from extra danger until the problem is satisfactorily solved. HAVS sin : WAS FAI.SI : . _ Among the cases tiled yesterday in the district court won a petition In divorce brought by Isaac Frolshcttc , who makes rather vigorous charges against his wife , who it would sooui , is a resident of Omaha. The petition filed In court re cites that Mary Freishetto were married in Canada in 1870 , that for the past three years the complainant has been n resi dent of Lincoln uud that for all of that time he has boon deserted by his wife , Mr. Frolshotto charges in hid petition that in 1883 his wife committed adultery at ( St. Williams , province of Canada , with ono Frank A. K. McCall , and further charges that his wife has boon for the rmst year living with this Frank McCall in oDun adultery in the city of Omaha , nnd that she is representing herself to bo the wife McCall. For tin-so reasons the plaintUT auks a divorce from hid unfalth ful spouse and the usual amount of ad ditional relief that the court may grant. OTIIEU CASKS. Williiim L. Granger has also filed a petition for divorce in the district court ids cause of complaint being also adul tery on the part of'his wife. The charge made in his petition is that his wife Luol M. Granger and himself were married In Howard in July 188.1 , and that on the 30th of June 1837 and 2nd of July 1887 she was guilty of the crime of adultery com mitted at120 F street with a man whoso name to him is unknown. Hence he wants a divorce. The First National bank of York. Nob. , has sued John Fitzgerald , John Christ- iansou , E. 11.

Lincoln always greets the Haverly's with crowdnd houses. The recent wreck on the H. & M. at South liciul on Tuesday night appears to have been so unanimously the fault ot the dispatcher that no attempt will be made to load the responsibility upon one of the engineers. As the wreck oc curred in the night it is possible that the same dispatcher was handling these trains who handled the trains the night of the llnvolook wreck , when the high priced operator at that station was exonerated onoratod by the coroner's jury and the blame loaded upon Engineer Dowser. Lincoln has thus far missed a rain It the long dry spell , and the prayers ot tin wicked seem to avail llttlo in stirring \ the elements.

The Trouto ! that n Cleveland Man Hai Ilcooinc Involved In. The following dispatch was received the other night from Washington , says the Cleveland Loader : On the tith of the present month A. Goldsoll , ot Cleveland , O. , returned from a trip to Europe , ar riving at the port of Now York by tlio stMunsliip Trave of the North German Lloyd line. Ho carried on his arm a sealskin coat , After the custom olliccr hud examined the baggage ot some of Gohlsoll's fellow-passoiigor.s Goldsoll throw down his sealskin coat upon the same and waited for his own baggagn to bo inspected. The sealskin was dis covered by ono of the ollicmls. "That's all right , that's mine , " quickly spoke up Goldsoll. But they did not bulieve him , nnd at once siozcd upon the coal. Gold- Boll claimed that ho bought it in this country , nnd an ho went over to Europe in the cold weather he had worn it Even this did not satisfy the otlicors.and they refused to allow the garment to pass without the customary duty. Then Goldsoll tiled with the sec retary of the treasury a protest against the action taken in confiscating the coat , alleging that ho bad bought it in London for i30 , and had imported if for his per sonal uso. Assistant Secretary Maynard took charge of the case ; and to-day sent his decision to the collector al Now York. Ho rellocts in his letter severely upon Goldsoll's action , nnd In view of the hit ler's stories , etc. , is of .the opinion that an effort was being made to avoid paying duly upon nn article that was clearly h nblo. Ho adil'sd that ho would leave the whole matter discretionary crotionary to the collector as to whnl should be done , saying In e licet thai the full duty should be assessed and n fm < added toil for the government. Ho .say : that if Goldsoll had not carried the coa as ho did , and then thrown it down upoi the baggage which had been examined nothing would have been thought of tin matter , and ho would have boon nllowcc to pass with it and no questions asked. o BerlouH Acqa ntlon Against a Prince f London Society : Prince George o Wales , keeps 1 up his reputation as a merr ; Jester.

THE PROSPECTOR'S STORY. A Precious itnllo nt the National Museum Jnmcs W. Mar shall's Valuable Dis covery. The original cause of the great Cali fornia gold fcver--tho first gorni is at the Nation&l museum , at Washington. It is securely scaled in a llttlo glass bottle , and there is no longer any danger of contagion. It Is a little flattened piece of gold about the size of a gold dollar. It Is the piece found by Marshall while dig ging a mill-race the year before the fever set ID. It was sent direct to the Smith sonian In August , 1818. The following Is n copy of the letter that accompanies it. SAN FIIANCISCO , Augusta , im This paiier contains the list piece of irnlit ever discovered In the noitherii part of Upper California. It was found In February , 1K48 , by James W. Marshall , In thorauu of Captain John A. butter'w Hiiw-nilll , about ! tnt-livo miles from Suttrr's Koik , on the south branch of the American Fork. It wns beaten out with n hummer by Mr. Marshall to test Its malleability. It.ls pu'soiilcd to the Na tional institute , Washington , 1) . C. J. Ii. FOI.SOM. J. L. Folsom was a captain iu the United States service. There are many nieces of gold in California claimed to be the first found , but none of them have the facts in favor of their claim. The discovery of this piece of gold by Mar shall led to the search for more , 'and it was found. It was the seed that up to 1880 had produced $1SOO,0)0.000 ! ) in gold. 1'rior to this dmcovorv Indians and a few missionary priests had been collecting tome gold In other parts of the stnlo , but thin was thy vorv first piuco found in the gold Dolt , and It led to the great rush to California In Ml ) . Dr. U. M. Dawes , the dentist ofost \\iisliington , WHS ono ot the forty-Hlners who started out from Washington. Ho was talking over the matter with u Star reporter. "A party of us. " ho said , "took a sailing vtnnel at Kaltlmoro in March , and wo were seven months and fourteen days making the trip to San Francisco. There were my brother and ex-Senator Snrgaatit , then a local re porter in Washington , ono or two oilier Washington boys and myself , and there wnre quite n number of others from llnl- timoru to maku up thu party. That wits the way Sargent tirst went to the state ho afterwards represented In the senato. Wo hatt a pretty hard voyage. The cap tain of the vessel treated us so badly that when wo got to Hlo do Janeiro wu com plained to lha consul and had him re moved. This caused a delay of fourteen days. Then ut Valparasio we had to un load a steam engine and other cargo , which caused a delay of twenty days moro. It wits a very weary voyage be fore we got to Sun Francisco , Sargent did not go all the way with us. lie got oft"nt Valparaiso , and frpm there .sailed to San Francisco in another vessel. I remember that he studied Spanish all tlio way from Hattimoro to Hio do Janeiro. "When wo arrived at San Francisco several of our party who were carpenters Etoppcd there. They got $10 a nay for working at their trade there , and thought it better than taking the chances in the mines. There worn siin my party who wont into prospecting. Evvrything was fever and excitement there then. All sorts of sensational reports of big finds were circulated , but there was not as much outlawry as many people sup pose. In San Francisco there was con siderable gambling. It was not much of a city then. All the buildings were frame and the gambling houses were like the frame barracks they put up for soldiers. The gaming rooms were in the front and the bur in the rear. Gamblers would pay $00 a night for ouch table. 'They never counted the money , but just .stacked it up on the table , uud measured It In that way. The gamblers were the only men who were while shirts. "There were no courts. If a man committed an otleuso in the dlggins ho was Iried by twelve men , selected for the occasion , and Mhi'ir decisions wore prompt and just. For that reason Ihcre were few crimes committed. Our gold was left in the camp without anyone ono to guard it , and it was never stolen , I would sometimes leave a day's diggings iu a pan out in the sun to dry. No cue over disturbed it. For serious crimes the jury of twelve would hang a man ; for potty hircnny they would horsewhip him and give him twenty-four hours to get out of camp. If a man sunk a pit and threw a pick or shovel in u , ho could go ou prospecting , and if ho returned any time within Ion days he would find his claim to tlio diggings respected. "When our party landed , " he con tinued , "we went to Sacramento , whore wo got three yoke of oxen and a wagon that hud come overland , and started tor the diggings , well stocked with pro visions. We went first to South fork , then to North fork , or Feather river. There was so much mini that wo had to abandon our cattle and wagon and carry our packs on our backs. Wo did pretty well , but I was nick and had to keep out of the trenches and give up mining for a whilrt. When wo dissolved partnership at North fork n sack of flour fell to my share and 1 sold it for f'JOO. 1 then bought a boat and gun and shot quail anil jack rabbits nnd sold them in Sail Francisco. Quail brought and $8 per do/.on dead and $1 ! ) alms , and jack rab bits ? 7 and ? S each. The second time I went back to San Francisco the cholera \\i\s raging thero. Men were dropping dead like slienp. " 1 wont to the diggings again , ami wo en mo across a big rook , near Middle Fork standing high out of the water , which whirled in a swift eddy around it. Wo know if there was any gold in thai 'ocal- ' Hy it would bo right in this odd } * . So wo filled the bags with sand , made a dam to turn the water aside so that wo could gut nt it. The very first dip of my pan brought up $ 'J18 worth of gold. After working there a weeK wo divided up , and each had ? 'JOO ' as his share. There were six of us. "After wo got thai hole worked oul wo began on the high banKs nnd il paid well , bul the work was too dangerous , t There were largo lee o rocks overhead , i and one day 1 just saved myself by swinging to a ledgn in time to let one pass under mo as it rolled down the bank , After thai wo stopped work Ihoro. The ncxl rich place wo struck was in Onior valley. When we gel Ihoro it was st cold that wo could work only two hour ; f a day , but eaoh of us made from $30 u > ' | 40 a day. The gold wns in largo nug a gets. Some were found worth ? 3 ( ) to $50 It was very late when wo struck there and wo could not stay long on account o ; the cold. Wo left a party there , and mj brother told mo thai they mid beci snowed in without fuel , and most o thorn were severely frost-bittenand semi died from exposure. "None of us got rich , " Dr. Dawes con tinued. "Ino trouble with all the minor was that they did not stay in ono placi r long enough to make it pay. If they hat t been content to stay whom they won making $10 to f20 a day they might havi done well. Hut there wore always falsi c reports of immense finds somewhon ' clso , and they would pull up stakes am move on , only to find that they had beoi fooled. No matter how well they wor doing a report of something bettor carried riod them oft" , In this way they spent ai much'in prospecting they made ii 'digging. Some of them got terribly 'a moralized. I have sroa strong meri cry ing because they could not get home to the east. Their folks could not send them aionoy to bring them back , and they could not earn enough , ' With all our good luck I pticss the most money 1 had at any one tlmo was about ? 1,500. Each \ycok the members of a company had a way of guessing at the amount of gold they had accumulated , thn man who came fartherost from the mark to pay for a bottloof whisky.

An analysis to determine what protected the wood from rotting will be made at once. Prof. Hilgard , of the university of Cali fornia , lias furnished a remarkable analysis of whisky sold in Sacramento. The Bee of that city sent him seven sam ples of whisky purchased iu an equal number of saloons , from the fashionable fifteen center to tlio vile live cent doggery. The result of the analysis is siillieicnt to astonish the patrons of the hiiih-tonetl saloons and precipitate n run on the groggorios. Samples number ono otul two were purchased at fashionable saloons , patronl/.ed by the best class of the community. Tlio professor found that the samples varied little In qual- tlty , The bead was good , taste sweet and aflortaste peppery , flavor rank and raw.uiilikngoiivliiu whisky. "Alcohol by volume , ! )1.3 ) per cent ; total solid con tents , .1)5 ) per cunt. The harsh aflcrtaslo of samples is due to the addition of resin ous substance , probably gum catechu , or possibly kino. Besides this its pungency has been restored , after the addition of water , by means of a tincture of popper , probably "liuiuea pepper , " to hide the fact that it Is over 1)7 ) below proof i. e. . lacks 18.0 of the 00 per cent of alcohol that "proot" spirit ought to contain. Its "bead" has likewise been doctored by the use of n vegetable tincture ; but ft contains no glycerino. The spirit dis tilled from this sample shows the pros- oneo of a largo amount ot commercial fusel oil , or nmyl alcohol. It has besides , however , a weak flavor of genuine whisky , which luu doubtless formed the starting point of tin ; whole.

Hil- gunl'.s remarkable analysis makes out the whisky sold there better than that at all the reputable places in town save ono. It is made out to be superior to number one , every drachm of which was im ported direct from the distillery and which is reeogm/edliy whisky sellers and drinkers us pure1.

The spirit from distillation .showed the flavor of whisky rather less strongly than should have been the case , but contained no fusel oil or spirits of nitre , creates the suspicion of the addi tion of neutral spirit. The residue trorn distillation showed no foreign addition , to the taste , and the close correspond ence of the total solids with the sugar test corroborates this point. This sample appears , therefore , to bo whisky , with probably the addition of some neutral spirit , but nothing else. Summer complaint almost Invariably cured by the use of 1'red. Brown's Ja- tunica Ginger. Philadelphia , 1823. The World Ono Market. "Tho Economic Disturbances Since 1873" by Hon David A. Wells , in Popu lar Science Monthly : Ono of the most momentous and what may bo called hu manitarian results of the recent great ex tension and cheapening of the world's railway system and service is , that there is now no longer any occasion for the people of any country indulging in either excessive hopes or fears as to the results of any particular harvest ; inasmuch as the failure of crops in any 0110 country is no longer , as it was , no later that twenty years ago , identical with high prices of grain ; the prices of cereals being at pres ent regulated , not within any particular country , but by tlio combined produc tion and consumption of all countries made mutually accessible by railroads and steamships. Hence it is that , since 870 , years of locally bud crops in Europe iiivt ) generally witnessed considerably jnver prices than years when the local crops wore good and there was u local surplus for export. In short , one marked cfl'cct of the pros- Mil railroad and steamship system of ransportation has been to compel a iniformity of prices for all commodities that are essential to life , and to put an end forever to what , less than half n century ago , was a constant feataro of commerce , namely , the existence of local markets , with widely divergent prices for such commodities. How much of misery and starvation a locally deficient market entailed under the old system upon the poorer classes , through the absence of opportunity of supplying tlio deficiency through importations , is shown by the circumstanou that in the English debates upon the corn laws , about the year U.840 , it was estimated , upon data furnished by Mr. Tooke , in his "History of I'rieeH , " that a deficiency of ouo-sixth in the English harvest resulted in a rise of at least 100 per cunt in the price of grain ; and another estimate by Davenant and King , for the close of the seventeenth century , corroborates this apparently excessive .statement.
