Bt BJ The old Bi Louis hotel , now the Hotel

BJ BJ of the city , The mm chants in the
BJ BJ vicinity claimed that was too fur to go
BJ 1BJ home for lunch and that they did not
BJIBJ euro to nay exorbitant prices uticstau-
B I B rants The proprietor ol the hotel con
H I B coivod the idea of setting a tight lunch
B\VB ° " l'10 ' nr 'or ' ' ' 8 Patrons and upon put
BB IB tiug it in oxcputlon , discovered that his
BBlB gaiiiu greatly Increased Ills cxumplo
BBJlBf was soon emulated and , in a very short
BbIH time , the Orescent City obtained a rui -
BBJlBi utitiou us the only town iu the world
where they gave n man a square meal
in order to got him to take a drink
The free lunch business grow on
npaco and was taken up in the oust un
til now the leading baleens have a reg
ular bill of faro each day , while oven
the country tavoms give two filed ojs-
tera with each glass of beer
Some of these eastern free lunch
houses make a specialty of thoh' spi ends ,
and on the day of Garflold's inaugura
tion a saloon near the tieusnry buildlne ;
had soionty dflTorent dishes on the
bill.Tho regular layout is generally soup
of some kind , with fish on Friduvs ,
hnrd boiled eggs , cola hnm , roast beef
smoking hot with brown gravy nnd
mashed potatoes , chicken salad , baked
spuro ribs and sauor kraut , boot stow ,
etc ; Of course this isaried , and
stowed kidneys , salmi of ohickon , giblets -
lots with rico , stowed liver , dry hush ,
game stew , fried tripe and all the good
things imiiginablo nio set up Itolishcs , ,
such ns tomntoos , asparagus and green
onions or cold slaw are
always ineludd , and dainty indeed la
the taste of him who cannot muko a
meal at ono of these places The usual
method is to have a loi'g counter with
stools opposite the bar where ono is
waited upon by the wnitor with ns much
deference as ho would rccoivo in a load
ing hotel The clnss of customers are
the very best and the price for drinks
is usunlly in advance of that of the ordi
nary nlaco of rofrcihmotit
But in Omaha how dlltorent Hero
everything Is sotupon atablo and a half
do/on fonts nio stuck in a gobloi of i\ lit

is generally an old route norkoi * who
knows every place where lunch is kent

which ho ' reserves until the food is put
up then ho buys a glass of beer and ho-

saloon ho pleases and gets away with nil
ho can hold There ho stands no show
whatoNnr , for unless ho has manoy to
lint up for some bo\erngo or u olgar ho
is invariably "llrod" by the bouncer " '
The latter isonoof necessity's chlhlron
lie is a lory necessary ugent Lilco the
business ho manages or presides o\or ,
ho originated in Now Orleans
Ho is genoinlly a professional
thumper und his duty is toflroany-
• bum who attempts to ring in without
patronizing the house The Now Or
leans moii after establishing the lunch
counter soon dlsco\orod that ucoitain
' ' . " Ono
class was working up loutos
day a saloon keener kicked one of thorn
out of doors Tno man sued the saloon
keeper for damages nnd got thorn , the
court holding that the saloon was not n
rostamnnt , nud that all lunch must bo
absolutely frco Then the salooninon
established regulations and hiiod
' carvers , " and would not allow their
guests to help themselves The carver
is tlio bouncer , nud when a route
worker comes in is always too busy to
help him If ho tries to help himself
ho is kicked out
Very few are over kicked out in
Omaha , for the prlco of a beer tlxos
things Carvers are few , for there is
nothing to carve Everything Is go-as-
Notwithstanding ihe fact that in our
Omaha lunches the principle of Live
and Lot Live is hut imperfectly illus
trated , there was n time whou a lunch
was soned in Omaha which was patron
ized one winter by hundreds of hungry
mortals ,
The Senate saloon und ovstor house
had been opened on Turnum street nour
Fiftconth , where the Dlmo Savings
bank is now located It cut into the
patronage of another saloon on Fif
tconth street , in the room where the
Adams express ollico is now located
To covintei act the competition the
proprietor of the latter place , still in
business In this city , established a
lunch At 11:30 : every morning there
was a spread thioo foot wide and twenty
foot long On It were piles of dolf with
pyramids of broad , towers of cake , bowls
of crackers and forests of colerr The
place smollcd like a restaurant In a
ronr room a colored deity presided over
pans of bonus , boilers of soup and rounds
of beef , inviting enough to bo carried
into the dinner table of a merchant
The dinner , for such to many it
really was , never wont bogging In
deed , even before it was served , fifty
people gonornlly awaited Its nppoar-
anco , and bdforo it"closed not less than
three times that number departed
gorged with a meal which had cost
thorn but the price of a drink
Indeed , ' to some , it was ovod loss , ex
pensive The impecunious , the broltcn
down man of ether days , the million
aire stood around the board Many a
time the experienced eye of tliu prop
rietor bolund the bar detected the man
from whom ho expected not even the
price of a. drink But ho could not gene
no further than bestow upon him a
withering glance , which , however , the
hungry mortal took great pains to
n\oiu. To thrust him ftora the saloon
would cause him too much annoynnco ,
nnd , ns a consequence , during that
eventful winter , that saloon man
suppoitod many a mortal
who otherwise might have starved ,
Pcoplo dined at his table who had not a
penny In their pocket , who hadn't had
opo for weeks , and who didn't ox-
poctto have ono for months People
albo dined there who expected to bo
called to haio r drink by seine more
fortunate friend , and who , under this
deceit , felt entitled to sample the
viands , The moro impociraious the
diner the moro voracious his appotlto ,
At length , howovorjtho frigid months
of winter pabsodaway Spring arrived
Tlio doors could now stand open , and
with the first awakening of that happy
Benson with its attondunt balmy airs
from field and forest the odors of the
great free lunch kitchen ascended to
great the nostrils of its varied epicures

Low Grade Honesty
CtlniNDA , Ia „ Nov t9. ! [ Special to Tnn
Bee.J "I understand , " said S. M. Crooks , a
loadlnu real estate dealer bore , that Ulch-
ard Cushing Is the domocratlo candidate for
mayor of Omaha "
The question was dlrectod to the corre
spondent of The Bfe and on being assured
that he had been correctly Informed , Mr
Crooks contlnuod :
"I nope ho will bo defeated "
And those are my sentiments exactly , "
interjected M. K. Ansoech , who overheard
tbo conversation ,
What do you pontlomon huow about Mr ,
CushhiK to occasion such forcible expres
sions against him ] "
An Unprincipled Rogue
"Wo know a ereat deal , " was their reply
in chorus
"Ho is an unprincipled rogue , " declared
Mr , Crooks , and moro thau two score of
Rood men in Page county found that fact out
to their sorrow "
It being bis turn to speak again , Mr Ans-
pech said : Yes , bo beat us out of 9.800. "
How did you buppon to got caughtl"
"By furnishing supplies for which wo
never received anypay/'ropllod Mr Crooks ,
The facts are these ; In 18S0 John lltz-
cerald & Compauy took a contract and built
what is known as the Huanstou & Shonan
dooh ruilroad They were at wont on it
nearly two years The grading and bridge
construction was sublet by them to numer
ous parties J. M. Bostwlck , new dead , and
Hlohard Cushtng were the company end of
the firm , aud Cushing staid hero as resident
manager of the enterprise After the work
started most oji jt these subcontractors
tors came tO/nius and made
arrangements whereby tboir mon could got
provisions on tlaio iMr Anspocb and I were
then conducting a coupral merchandise busi
ness together We hud made soma money in
this manner before , nnd felt glad of what
seemed to bo an opportunity to do so again
Wanted Commission lee
Negotiations wchfcaslly consummated
Mj partner went tottashing , however , before -
fore we closed the contract and received as
surances from him tfcat these men wore all
right Mi Cushing wt only interested him
self in their behalf but also suld thut , for a
consideration sunlcient to compeasato him
for any trouble ho mlt-lit bo put to , would
stand as our rcpresii/itativo / and insure us
agaiust loss Wo consented to pay him 10
per unit on all our lU\ls provided ho would
deduct each month tbmnmount duo us before
paying the laborers That proposition satis- ,
tied him and he agreed to It
CiiHlllim Itepmliutcil tlio Clnlnin
"Kverthlntr ran along smoothly the llrat
month , and when payday caino arounJ our
chocks wore cashed witbout a single protest
or ii ord of objection At the cad of the second
end month trouble commenced When wo
wanted our money Mr Cashing put us oft on
the plea that his allowance was short In a
few das Mr Ancptch oallod again , and was
given a cold snub , Pushing refused to see
him atall- The next thing weknow.and about
tlio end of three mouths , all the imported
subcontractors suddenly disappeared , and
Pltztrerald & Company had taken the unfin
ished work Into their own hands As a con
sequence we wcro left in the soup
' Cuihtng utterly repudiated our clatms
and said wo could whistle for what was com
ing to us About that time It was discovered
that there were many other * in the boat with
us We lost , through Phelps & Konvon ,
Jl,300 ( ; through Mike Boxton S70U. and Sain
Ferguson about * 1,000 , besides some smaller
sums , making in all { 9.800. "
II L. fatllwell , Henry Knost , V. L. AW
bott , and several other leading fanners , liv
ing along the line of this work , were men
tioned as huving boon deliberately swindled
out of thousands of dollars for liny , corn
and oats , furnished to the graders for their
teams Thov hold Cushing rnsponsiblo because -
cause bo gave them his word that they
should have their pay before tno laborcrs-

"Wo learned later on , " said Mr Anspocb ,
that the absconding sub contractors bad
boon taken away by Cushing und put to work
on another contract > his 11 rm held , in Wis
consin Not havlnc been socurcd only by
Cuslung's piomlso to protect us , wo could do
nothing "
C. B. Vance Is another of the victims who
was soon by your correspondent Ho con
ducted n grocery ut the time and was left in
the lnrch for bills aggregating $1,000. "On
Dick Cushing's endorsement , " Bald Mr
Vance , "I agreed to tnko Perguson'B orders
and let bis men have supplies 1 took a
chattel mortgage on his shanties and tools
but in addition Cushing insured
motbntlf Purguson did not pay the bill ho
would When 1 wanted to draw a portion of
the account after it was past duo , much to
my surprlso I discovered that a stupendous
swindle had boon perpetrated and that I was
only ono of twonty-llvo or
Thirty Oilier Victims
Cushing at first put me off on various pleas ,
but finally refused to talk with mo at alb
Then I Btartcd out to seize the property , only
to find that the shanties bad boon torii down
aud the tools in Cushing's possession Pur
guson hud disappeared aud was working for
the same firm in Wisconsin , You can say
for ma that Dick CusLiner is not tlio kind of
a maa to be clootcd mayor of Omaha I
would like to bo there and help defeat him "
"Wasn't riUger.ild coguUint of these
swindles ! "
"Bo must have bcon , but Cushing con
ducted the business Pltzgcrnld was an ig
norant sort of man , though he had the money
and Cusblng
Did all tlio Solictnlng "
T , J. Bracken , who keeiis a book store was
the next mnu intorvlowod
Through Phillips & Kenyan I lost tl.lOO , "
said he , "nud it almost broke mo up , "
Did you furnish supplies , tool
No I bought time chocks of the mon
and paid 80 cents on the dollar for them "
What security did you have that these
checks would over be rodoemcdl"
"No security , except Dick Cushing's word
Ho told mo that it would bo all right
When I asked hlra for a settlement ,
however , bo put ma off tbo same
I as everybody clso on the excuse that his es
timates were short , though repeatedly us
suring me that the men were good and I
would got uiv money , After Phillips fc Ken
Left tlio Country ,
I went again to Cushtng , but ho would have
nothlug whatever to do with me then , "
"Doou ihink Cushing stood In with these
sub contractors to swindle jou pcoplo ! "
There is not the loasl doubt about in the
mind of every man who knows anything
about these transactions If not , why did he
beep them employed for the lirm In other
parts of tbo country ! Bo brougnt them
here , aud under his orders they loft , " The
DlstresMlni ; Cnno
of cruel ticatment was that committed on
James Harrington , who took a contract to
grade one-half milo of road near I'agu Cen
ter , Mr Harrington was an enterprising
\oung nmn in the grocery business ut Clu-
rinda , and believing that ho saw an oppor
tunity to tnauo a few dollars , concluded to
trv his hand as a contractor , und toolcn Job
where a deep cut had to bo made When
the wonc was about half completed and he
had expended nearly all of bis owu capital ,
a smallpox epidemic struck the community ,
t and for want of men he was compelled to
stop operations Under the conU'act Mr
Harrington obligated hlmsolf to have the
Job done within a certain time The small
pox and severe told weather ren
dered it absolutely iuipossiblo for
him to fulfill bis obligation
Bald ho in tolling bis stoi v , Cushing not
only took the contract away from tno but ro-
fustd to ullow mo ono cent for what work I
did , In consequence of which
1 Wim Left Ieiinlloss
It took everything I had hi tlio world to pay
