EHE OMAHA DAILY BEE s SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 17 , 1887.
FftlOHXJENKD MAIDEN8. Rescued Prom the Esmond Hotel Fire by Daring Firemen. The most serious conflagration which has occurred hero for some months took place yesterday morning , in what has heretofore been known AS the Norrls hotel on the corner of Sixteenth and Webster streets. A few days ago Norrls retired from the management of the place , and a Mr. Colby took charge , changing the name to that of the Esmond house , At 0:40 : o'clock the alarm was sounded from box 64 , nnd though the tire depart * ment responded with despatch , the lower part of the house was found in flames , while dense volumes of smoke were roll- inn upward into the sleeping apartments on the second and third floors , causing the occupants to believe that escape could bo had only through the windows. On the upper floors there were several ladles who baa not yet left the building , and when these discovered that they could not reach the ground by means of the stairs , made their appearance at the windows and some of them were dis suaded from jumping to the walk by the repeated injunctions of the fircmon to wait until ladders could be raised for their assistance. As it was , several throw their trunks and wardrobes to the walk , and were soon enabled to follow them by being brought down the ladders by the hook and ladder men. Some of the ladles when found were un conscious , and others were in a terribly excited condition. Six of them owed their safety to the daring of ladder men. At one of the windows the ladder failed to roach the third story , where a fcoblo man sought assistance. For the first time in some months a Pumpcler ladder was brought into use and extended from the lap ot the ladder to the window in ques tion. It was held by Mr. Farrish , of the hook and ladder company , while the fee ble gentleman descended. The most exciting event , however , was the rescue of Mrs. Norris , who at the time was bedridden in her room , which was completely enveloped in smoke. She must have suffocated haa not the clerk. Harry Carson , rushed to her apartment and borne her bodily to the second floor , whore ho placed her in room 40 , which was out of the direction of the same. Mrs. Norris was insensible and Carson was overcome and nearly suffocated. Ho is still under the effects of the smoke and fears are entertained of Ills recovery. Mrs. Norris had been operated UDOII yesterday for a tumor , and the chances arc against her recovery. The hotel was damaged to the extent of $2,500. It is owned by Droxcl & Hart and fully insured. Meyer's bakery on the first floor was damaged to the extent of | 5,000 ; Edwnrd Larkin , the dry goods man , suffers a loss of $1,000 , also insured , while the furniture of the hotel was more or less injured. The insurance policies .lor thK however , uro now in Chicago with Norris. and the amount of the same is not known. The fire originated , it is claimed , with n lighted gas jet which was attached tea a post between the bakery and the hotel kitchen In the basement. The tire department was under the di rection of Assistant Chief Suiter and was well handled. SCHOLASTIC AFFAIRS , Uroni Increase of Pupils and a Com- parlHon With fiant Year's Standing. The overcrowded condition of the city schools , and the continued increase of now pupils , is assuming a shape that is very perplexing bet h to Superin tendent James nnd the educational board. The opening day gave indica tions of what might bo v pectcd in the way of an augmented attendance for the present year , but did by no moans reveal the extraordinary magnitude of the unprecedented increase of young ideas anxious to learn how to shoot. The inllux of additional pupils has been simply astounding. It was not _ looked for by any one. In consequence 'but little or no provision was made for their accommodation. This must now bo donq within a prescribed time that is exceedingly trying and an noying to the parties vested with the authority to attend to these matters. However , they are evincing an energy , that cannot tail to prove adequate to the task , and there is no doubt that by next week ample facilities for the accommodation of the great in cruaso will bo devised. By way ot com parison the BKB has ascertained thnt the number of teachers regularly enrolled last year was 100 , and together with those intermittently employed , this mini ber would bo swelled to probably 105 with an average attendance of pu Kils to a teacher of forty-seven , making 10 total enrollment of 7,500. Yet it mus be understood that at no one time wat there more than 7,000 in the schools This fall there is a roster of over 170 teachers with an average of fifty-live pu pils to the teacher , which increases the number of pupils to in the neighborhood of 0,800. This is certainly an extra ordinary increase , rmd what is still more remarkable is the fact that additional scholars are reporting every day. The board is straining - ' ing a point , however , and all will be properly nlassi tied and accommodated by the first of the coming week. The pub lic school attendance , it should bo borne in mindmust not bo confounded with the school population of Omahaas it does not Butllciently represent it by any menus , or oven furnish a basis for computation. The private and select and secular , schools embodying much of this population , and rendering it a diHicult matter to got at lust what the school population in tote is. However , it is safe to say that it Is greatly , perhaps almost double , of that represented by the public school attend ance as stated above. DIDN'T WAIT FOB TI1K VERDICT. Herb Hotliory Convicted ot the Diamond mend Itobery nnd Escapes. At 3'o'clock yesterday morning the jury in the diamond robbery cose against Herb Uothory , otherwise known us John Mo- Clollan , which has been on trial for the past week at Council ItlutVs , returned a verdict of guilty. When the bailiff brought the notifica tion of the jury's agreement the judge convened the court and tlio twelve were led from their room to the box. All parties concerned in the caio wore present save one and that none other than the defendant. The court stayed the announcement of the vordlct for a half hour , at the expiration of which it was conceded from all sides that the defendant did not purpose to ap pear. The Uniting of the jury was then read and the bond of the accused forfeited. His sureties wure John Under nud Conrad Geico to the amount of f 1,000 each. Tim judge t'lun ' sot the casu for judgment ou next Wi'dnesdav. Colonel Daily , the Council Hinds prosecutor cuter , was In tlio city yesterday morning and re ported to Chief Soavoy such tacts as are essential in running down the fugi tive. The colonel believes that Uothory gained an inkling of the probable verdict Thursday afternoon and licit as boon as night came. Calls at the defendant's saloon on Dodge near Eleventh street yesterday , secured - cured no word of the .fugitive. At his brother's saloon 8t the corner of Elov. enth and Hartley streets , A. H. Forbtu , who is a creditable spokesman for tlio defendant , said that no had not. seen the defendant , but was positive that nU ncio'Qot topcru\aucutly dude ho law. It la rather Rothery's purpose to It COD quiet so aa to avoid tlio annoy ance of imprisonment ocnding an appeal for a new trl.il , and aa soon aa cer tain papers" are tiled in Council Bluffs and bonds are renewed , ho will appear on earth. Implicated In thit crime with Rothery , according to the reading of the indict ment , was a William Morse , a loose character of no regular occuuation In this city. .The defense had stood upon scparatn trials , and Morse's case was docketed for 10 o'clock yesterday morn- Ing. Court being convened , a jury was 1m paneled , the case waa called and the sheriff gave the customary summons at the door , but no Morse appeared. Ilia bonds were forfeited , the same gentle men as for Kothery being sureties. About 10:30 : yesterday morning Alorso walked Into Ed Hothery's saloon and waa instantly seized by the proprietor. Ed ward Kothery is security for Morse In two criminal oases pending before the Uoug las county district court , anil taking alarm ( or pretending to ) ho determined to throw up his surety. ( Jhlef Seavy ac cepted the custody of Morse , and after an unavailing effort to sccuro a confession , locked the man up in the county Jail. Morse was seen in the jail and said that ho camn across the river in a boat with tlerb Rothery. Tlioy started at a point up the river , but the current was HO swift that they landed below the Union Pacific bridge. "Then , " said Morse , "Host sight of Herb , lie told me while coming over that ho was going to give himself up and stand the chances of an appeal to a higher court. I am not guilty of stealing the diamond at Council Bluffs , neither is Herb Uoth ory , but Ed Rothery went on my bonds in another case. I won't sec him sutler. He's too good a man. So I thought 1 would just surrender myself and avoid all sensation. " Over-U'orUod Women.

Address WOKLU'S Disn : > sAUY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION , GG3 Main street , buffalo , NA , The Post HOUHC. Ono of the city's institutions main tained at public expense is the pest house. It is located on the northwest corner of the poor farm , and is a plain , harmless looking shanty about 20x25 feet in area. It suggests anything rather than the in tention which directed its erection , for It was designed as a refuge for those af llictcd with small-pox , yellow fever and Asiatic cholera. Although no case of contagious disease of any description has bean confined in it for two years , an attendant is regularly employed at a monthly salary to perform imaginary duties within it , and ft is a tradition in the vicinity that the building affords him shelter from the inclemencies of the seasons. The old building was deserted and closed yesterday with no signs of habitation visible about it , and everything looked as though the keeper had gene off to engage in other and more pleasing pursuits , return ing , perhaps , occasionally as the home steader would do , to make sure that his pre-emption was not wiped out. So an * ions was the reporter to talk to the keeper or , that to his intense joy , finding that telephonic communication existed with the pest house , no began a series oi "holloa , holloa , " but "oh holloa" came back as an empty echo. That keouor , during his absence , should have a clerk or a telephone bov to maintain the dig nity of the post house , and to afford anx ious reporters opportunities of culling news and interesting matter.

A Suspicious Character. - John Cain was arrested ycsterda ; charged with having stolen n pair of $1 pants from the counter of William Mol drum's merchant tailoring establishment Cain was arraigned this morning an pleaded not guilty.

Ho refused to buy and in turnin ; his back , Cain snatched a pair of pants together with his own bundle , from th counter and made his escape. Ho wn arrested an hour afterward , but no traces of the pants could bo found , and as it could not bo proven that ho took them , ho was dismissed , but immediately rearrested on a charge of vagrancy anil siiM > icinu3 character. Ho was sent up for thirty days. Ilnrrlaon on tlio Range. W. H. Harrison , the man who has oc casioned so much annoyance to the sol diers on the rillo ranee , by locating some of his property which may bo affected by the shots of the marksmen , seems determined to drive the latter off the range , yester day he was found on one of the lota , digging a cellar , in the enclosure made by 11. T. Clark. The anomaly. of the sit uation is the right of Mr. Clark to erect a fence around his property and the right also of Harrison to jump the cmmo and commence his work of excava tion. Mr. Clark is determined to bring tlio matter to a focus in a few days. A "Dlatlnuulahed" Visitor. Doe Johnson , the man who compelled I'arker , the man who robbed Paymaster Hash , to forcibly give up $3,200 of the "stuff , " was in town yesterday , but he did not appear in the style hu assumes in Whitman where ho resides. The town is a tough place at the end of the 1) . & M. branch , 120 miles west of broken liow. There , it is claimed , ho is generally attended by a female protector and a rillo , which ho seems to feel necessary to repel the at tack of some expected foe. rho DurnntH In the Woods.

The Omaha Company Purchase * the Bonlh Omnli * 1'lant , The Omaha waterworks company have bought out both the Stockyards and South Omaha land ' company's water works plants at South Omaha. The bar gain wus closed last evening , but the terms of the purchase are unknown. The Omaha company assumed con trol this morning , and will Im mediately begin the laying of a sixteen inch main from their system proper , in this city , to the stock yards , thereby merging nil the plants Into ono and the samn plant. However , the stock yards and land company's system will still bo held as only auxiliary to the sys tem in chief until the completion 'of the now rorks at the suburban village of Florence , when they will bo aban doned. Work on the super structure of the latter has already begun , and the grading contracts will be let probably Wednesday or Thursday next. Work will therefore bo vigor ously prosecuted until the colossal sys tem is complete. The big tunnel to the river and the substructure will bo fin ished , say by the middle of December , and the superstructure , with annexes , by July 1,1888. when Omaha can probably boast of as complete and thorough a sys tem of water works as can bo found in the country , and the very best west of the city of Chicago. Tlio service of the water works at the tire this morning , at the cor ner of Sixteenth and Webster streets , is relevant testimony as to oven tlio pres ent thorough condition of the Omaha water works , and good grounds upon which to estimate the character and efficiency of what they will bo after the expenditure of $1,000,1100 upon their enlargement and improvement. So great was the pressure that two sections of hose were burst asunder , yet still loft no less than twelve magnificent streams playing upon the burning building. All the hydrants worked uorfectly.accounted for by the fact that tlio company keeps a gang of men on duty to watch and at tend to them , and to see that they are never out of condition. In fact , every thing Is being done as rapidly as circum stances will permit to improro nnd per fect Omaha's already very satisfactory waterworks system. Notice. Any person giving information to the undersigned of the whereabouts of Gil bert Everton will confer a favor on him. Ho left O'Neill , Nob. , three years ainee , and has not since been hoard from. U.

Chairman Halconibc , of the board of public works yesterday morning , received the oflicial resolution of tlio council affect ing the disposition of the material taken rom the streets by the railway compa nies in laying their tracks. It reads as ollows : llcsolvcil , That the chairman of tin board f public woiks report to the council as to what disposition is mailo of the pavmc ma- lerial thnt has been and Is bolni : removed from ttio paved streets by the several street car companies which Imvn torn up the niwe- ncnt for the purpose of laying the street car tracks , as the law provides tlmt all street car companies shall pave , at their own expense , Mielr tracks. Mr. Balcombo says that ho will simply report to the council that it has been ctis- .omary for the companies in question to ake the material referred to , claiming hat they put in anew pavement instead. Ho will also ask for instructions as to what ho shall do with regard to the mat ter in the future. Thousands of loads of cedar block and broken stone have been removed in this manner , and been sold to the pecuniary advantages of the rail ways. GUADING CONTRACTS. The board of public works held a mect- ng yesterday and awarded contracts 'or ' the grading of the alloys between Mason and Pierce streets , and Pierce and Pacific streets , from Tenth to Eleventh streets , and also Pierce street , from Tenth to Eleventh streets , to Stunt & Harael.

The council made no provision at their last meeting for the payment of the special policemen appointed for fair week as was expected , and tlio men are much disappointed. Chlet Soavoy had certificates of their time made out this morning , which many of them have since hypothecated at a sacrifice. They are laboring men and in great need of the little money they have honestly earned , and cannot await tlio pleasure of the council.
