TJdUii OMAHA DAILY AUtfJBJ , TUESDAY , JUNE 24 , 1800.
ueh satisfaction that Mr. Mollcn retained
Jilm as his assistant.
When Mr Mellon bccntno general traffic
mannrfcr In March , 1S3' > , Mr1. McUlbbcn suc-
Bccdca him
IV to Hint time , the latter had lived mod
estly mid moderately. Very suddenly a"
entirely different line of conduct was notlci J
5tHho young man. It was not long until bowen
won nnd proudly were the soubriquet of
IK-IIIR n ' 'high roller. " A fast tcittn of horses
and line cnrrlngo In which ho rode dally llko
n tnllllonuiru prince to the oftlce , nmdo their
npprnrnnce ; a blooded saddle horse was also
lidded to the possessions.
Immediately after his succession to the
oftlcoof general purchasing agent , thu coal ,
Btono and hotel department * wcro nttnchcd to
it and put under his control , Naturally that
Increased the Importance of the position
throe or four fold ,
In the meantime- this rapid Increaio of
honor.and. . power hud changed McICIbben'a
bearing to such an extent that ho bccnino
nutocratlc , dictatorial and very Independent.
.Agents of supply houses , local merchants who
deiilt moro or less with the company nnd
others soon found him so Indifferent and cool
towards them when they railed at the ofllco
on business that complaints commenced to bo
heard. It Is a notorious fact that prominent
business men ucro Ill-treated and dollber-
nlcly Insulted.
One uuy ho ordered Fred dray out of his
ofllce. Another time ho undertook to bull
doze O I-1. Hamscy but Mr , Ramsey showed
light so strongly" that McKlbben backed
down mid apologized. Many other lucldunts
of this character arc currently reported.
They llnnlly reached Holcomb's ear nnd that
gentleman asked him for his resignation , but
it was not forthcoming. McKlbben ques
tioned tlio vice-president's authority to lot
him out , went posthaste to Boston , snwl'resl-
dpiil Adams nnd got himself reinstated.
This net of favoritism greatly inllatcd Mae's
estimation of himself and he never missed an
opportunity to impress upon those with
\vliom ho came In contact the full scope
nnd magnitude of his olllelal capacity.
Jn consequence matters soon reached such n
condition that Adams , Holcomb , certain dl-
ri > ctorH and everybody else having nny
nuthorityoro appealed to by men nil over
the coUntrj' for better treatment. The day
rolled round on which something had to bo
done , Mr. Holcomb determined to remove
McKlbbcn or quit the Union Pncillo himself ,
Thorefoio , when Mr. Adams arrived hero on
bis recent visit the question was made an
Issue- . The icsult was McKlbben's resigna
tion ,
Mr. Adams was informed of the al
leged frauds that bad been carried on
nnd ordered the investigation mentioned
nbovc. AH yet the officials decline to dlvulgo
the full extent of their discovery. It comes
front icllablo authority , though , that Mr.
Anderson has traced the payment of commis-
Kions on contracts , in money and presents ,
amounting to nearly , if not quite ,
Numerous nro the racy stories related of
Klbbens' ' debauches after ho arose to the
Jicight of his career. The first trip ho took
over the system as general purchasing agent
was , according to all accounts , a round of
drunken revelry. Ho stocked his special car
with wines nnd liquors before leaving Omaha
nnd sent hack for more from North Plntto.
A company of congenial companions went
along and they simply made Homo howl.
Passing through Wyoming their actions were
NO annoying to the conductor that ho threat-
icnol ( enco to sidetrack the car and leave it.
"Whereabouts.
McKihbon was in Chicago last week en
route to Omuliu , but divined , it seems , that
this exposition of his career was coming and
icturned cast.
licneral Manager Dickinson saw him there
and at his request secured u pass for the
young muii from Chicago to this city. At that
time he made anxious Inquiries regarding the
bituatloa of affairs hero and what was being
haid concerning him.
The Omaha Nest.

the best neighborhood in West Oniahnstands
'MclClbben's new residence , now being con

the most delightful residences in all Omaha.
In style of architecture it is semi-colonial.
It is largo nnd the elegance of all Its appoint
ments is very noticeable. There are two full
stories , an attic and u basement. The roof is
pitched high , with a long slant from
' I which protrude dormer windows of varied
shapes. A broad verandah encircles the front
and the .southern side half way back , wliilo a
I " narrower piazza run * around the remainder
\i \ of the south side and the rear. There are
fourteen lai-go rooms with high ceilings ;
thoru are bath rooms and every convenience
imaginable. All the floors are of hardened

the ronvcnlences nnd appointments of a mod-
cm house perfect In its arrangement.
McICibben values this proiwrty at $3r > ,000 ,
its actual cost , but has authorbed his agent
to Sell it for fcJJ-.OOO cash.
Tito Council Hlii IT * Nest.
Mr. McKibben resided at2:23 : South Seventh
street , Council. Bluffs. The building Is a
Mnall brlelc , two stories high , and contains
Hats for three families. In the most south
erly of these , the cx-purehasing agent re
sided. The structure has stone trimmings
nnd is otherwise ornamented , the entrance to
the McKobben homo being an alcove of
unique design.
The house was furnished several months
ngo , everything from the white owl mantelpiece -
piece to the clothes pins in the laundry
liuvfng been purchased at the time.
As n consequence , when Mr. MeKibbon loft
all the goods were almost as fresh as whor.
they wcio purchased. The doors of the resi
dence were locked , the curtains were milled
down , the servants wcro discharged anil for a
tlmadeseitlon held sway within the walls.
In the meantime , however , correspondence
ban passed between Mr. Melubbon and I/1. 1C.
Darling of this city with the result that the
latter was authorized to bell the fuinlturo at
auction
Accordingly , on Saturday last the sale bo-
RUU under Air. Duiling's supervision , Hurry
Irwln of the Bluffs being the auctioneer.
The sale t ntlnucd during the day , n num
ber of things being disposed of ut fairly good
Jirleas. It was continued Saturday nignt ,
but only n small number of purchasers were
in attendance. A bed room set of antique
* onk , with w mattress which must have cost
$ .10. together with n magnificent hall rack ,
bom for JUS. The sot must have cost 5400.
Sunday word was received from Mr. Mc
ICibben , and as u consequence all the small
goods which remained unsold were put Into
trunks with the Intention of shipping them
c.u > t ,
Yesterday these trunks were scattered
tiirguuh "tho rooms nnd the only part of the
furnishing which remained unsold were the
carpets. Thcso were of nil styles
mid raitgpd from the softest velvet ,
oil ' whim the heaviest footstep
Ayoujd full noiselessly to cheap cotton stuff
which did sorvleo In the servant's apartment.
They wow measured carefully , ttm urea cov
ered being about ono hundred and seventy
yards. For thesa the auctioneer was willing
to necopt an uvorugo prlco of $1.20 per yard.
The intending purchaser was Mr. E/Hart
' of the Bluffs. Mr , Darling was consulted
on the subject through the telephone. The
deal did not seem satisfactory to him becaiisa
"lie thbught the carpets ought to bring him n
higher prlco. Ho finally stated that ho would
go over to the Bluffs nnd superintend the deal
himself , Mr. Hart , however , anticipated him
by driving to this city himself shortly before
jioon ,
The fumlshlug of the house , was of the
best In o\vory respect and must have cost
( iovorul thousand dollars.
TUoiulo nottcd something over n thousand
t dollars , Kvorythlng of course was slaugh
tered after" the manner of secondhand salon
nnd wont put of Mr. McKlbbcii's possession
just about us cosily us it had gene into it ,
" The carting uway of the goods attracted
the attention of nearly all the neighbors , who
slyly peupod from behind parlor eurtutn.s ,
though few of thorn knew of the charge
sey them to suddenly lose their iU- !
neighbor.

NKW Yonit , Juno 23. The Fnssolt sennto
committee held n special session hero today to
take the testimony of Illchnrd Crokor , the
'Tammany hall leader. There was a largo
crowd present , Patrick McCanu , and his
wife , who It a sister of Mrs. Crokor , were In
the audience. Crokcr did not display much
evidence of Illnws , but looked much worried.
Ho was nt once culled to the stand. He said
that ho had come from Europe , contrary to
the advice of hU physicians.
Lawyer Chonto read part of McCann's
testimony nbout the money which ho said
Crokcr had In his satchel to bribe nldormeii
to got n continuation by them cf Grant's ap
pointment by Minor Kdsou for commissioner
of public works.
Crokor said It wns absolutely untrue In all
particulars. Ho had gene to McCnnn's store
nbout that time , but had not carried a satchel
nor any largo sum of monoy. No such sum
bad been raised for such confirmation nor
nny since , nor had Grant raised $30.000 for
sucn purposes. Ho said ho had visited Mc
Cann's about the tlmo referred to and nsked
McCimn If ho hud hoard anything about a
rumor that $30,000 had been raised to keep
Hubert O. Thompson in the oflleo of com
missioner of public works. McCann thought
that Tom Adams , who was intimate with
Alderman Picrson , might know something
nbout it. Ho had mot Adams in McCnnn's
store by appointment subsequently ,
but Adams knew nothing of the rumor.
They had no other conversation. Tnmniany
hall was doing nil It could at the tlmo to fight
against the reappolntment of Hubert O.
Thompson and ho desired to defeat any efforts
nmdo by Thompson to arrange for u confirma
tion. It was also understood that witness
was to get 10 cents ou every barrel of cement
used by the department of public works pro
viding Grant got the nomination. Ho ro-
inemberod that Grant bad stood as Godfather
for his daughter Flosslo and had given her
55,000 , on two occasions in bills as
u present. It was not given by reason
of any prior understanding with Mayor
Grant. iTho money had been Invested
in October , 1887 , in a house for the boncllt of
the child. During the cross-examination by
Lawyer Ivins a document was shown wit
ness with ono signature cut out. 'Croker ad
mitted his signature to it. It was nn agree
ment signed by a number of aldermen , in
cluding Crokor , who swore that they would
not as aldermen vote to confirm nny ono or
pass any bill of moment without consulting
A. W. Gnnet. Thomas J. Ciemer , Michael
Norton , G. W. MuLnno and G. II. Piorson.
Croker said ho did not know whoso signa
ture had been cut out. but presumed it was
the name of the m > n who had possession of
it beforeJvinS gocit. Croker admitted that
Florence ScannoU , the murdered brother of
John Scannoll , wns also a member of that
board of aldermen.
Objection was made to this line of ques
tioning by Lawyer Clioate , and Ivins made
the astonishing btatcniont : "I want to show
that the tag en Is Of politics in Tweed's ' tiino
now rule our politics. I will show that John
heannoll , brother of Florence , is now a mem
ber of Tammany hall and ono of its money
raisers. I vrlll slmw that James Barker was
also a member of that board nnd was closclv
connected with C'rocker and Tammany until
recently convicted of assault. I want to
show whore part of the money raised wont. "
A recess was taken at this point.
After recess Ivins took up once more
Mayor Grant's present to Flossie Croker.
The first ? r > ,000 , Crokcr testitied , was pre
sented in the ijuyly part of 1SSO.
' Did the piescht cieuto any surprise on
your part ? " -
' Well , of course I recognized the fact that
Grant was doing a very generous net. Mrs.
Orokor took the envelope containing the
money front Flossie and \ > M it in the safe. "
"Did you buy that safe ? "
"No , it was bought for mo by Mr.
Flack. "
Croker says ho did not invest the money
right away because ho owned some property
which he was trying to sell and ho wanted to
add this money to that ho had before buying
any more property.
Senator McNaughton said the committee
hud no business inquiring into Croker's
trusteeship of money given by Grant to
Floss to Crokcr.
At this reply to Ivins the Tammanyltes ap
plauded vigorously.
Croker declared that no tax was levied on
nny onlceholdor for election purposes. The
expenses , however , In the various districts
were very heavy. Croker did not know what
contributions had been made by Judge Book-
stavor , Mayor Grant , Mayor Hewitt , and
other candidates.
Mrs. Croker was put upon the stand. She
denied that she over told McCann that Croker
had gene to Europe and loft her unprovided
for , that she had ever said Mayor Grant gave
Flossie J5OUO , , or that she over sat up all
night to guard $180,000 which had been raised
to secure Grant's appointment as commis
sioner of public works. She said she put the
tnouoy given little Flossie by Mayor Grunt
into a safe nnd It remained there until the
property was bought.

Accident Unknown Tlio
Knjiiiecr's Story.
A fatal wreck occurred on the \Vnbash near
Silver City , eighteen miles southeast of Connell -
ell niuff * , nt 1130 yesterday morning. The
Incoming passenger train No , 7 , duo ut 1 ! ) :1B : ,
was ditched nbout ono nnd u half miles south
of that place by the breaking of it Mango on
ono of the driving wheels of the engine. The
engine , mall nnd baggage tar : wont down the
bank , but the rest of tiio train remained on
or near the mils , which at that point are on n
llfteen-fool , embankment.
It Is n mystery Just how the wreck oc
curred , the engineer , W. D. Hodgorson , belnp
of the opinion that the engine Jumped the
track and that the llailgo on the driving
wheel wns broken off nftorward. The train
had Just passed over n bridge and wns ma
iling about twenty-llvo miles pn hour. En
gineer Hodgcrson says he reall/ed that they
were off Just us they left the bridge und Im
mediately applied the nlr. Ho then rushed
for the tender , so 113 to get out of
the way when the crash came ,
but Instantly turned back again and
"screwed her dd\\n tight. " after whloh
ho again sought the tender. When the en
gine Jumped into the ditch the tank was dis
connected nnd turned end over end.
Hodgorson was thrown high hi the nlr ,
and when ho fell ho struck tbo driving
wheels on the upper side ot the engine , and
one arm passed between tbo spokes. Had'
the wheel boon revolving It would huvo torn
off his arm and probably killed him , but as
it was bo escaped comparatively uninjured ,
his side being bruUed nnd ono hnnd some
what injured. Ho will not bo laid up for any
great length of tlmo.
The fireman , Andrew Christ , did not ap
parently try to get out nnd ho died u horrible
death. The engineer says ho canliot imagine
what tlio fireman was doing or why ho did
not try to jump. A f tor the wreck Christ pot
out of the cnb of the engine and walked as lar
us the baggage cur , where ho fell. Ho was
literally cooked , and as he walked nlong the
ilesli dropped from his bydv in largo pieces ,
leaving u distinct trail Vv'hen the body was
raised up nnd placed in the baggage
car , ono hand , with the exception
of the bones , fell off. Christ lived until the
train which brought in the passengers was
about half way to the Bluffs , when ho died.
He was scalded by the escaping steam , in
which ho lay for nearly a minute.
The deceased , Andiexv Christ , was a Dane ,
twenty-four years of age. Ho was married
aoout nix months ago and leaves a wife who
is now in a delicate condition. The wife
was notillo'l by telegraph ot the .sad accident ,
but she did not know of the f.ital termination
until after the body of her hiisbind arrived
hero. Tlio poor woman was .standing in the
door of her cottage when the train stopped
but a block awu\ , but fortunately she did not
see the undertaker's wagon back up to receive
Its burden. The funeral will take place from
the i evidence at ! J o'clock this afternoon.
The bcenu of the accident wns in a valley ,
and the sun beat down unmercifully
A wrecking crow was sent from Stnnberry ,
ind pulled back the coaches , which were all
ludly smashed In. The truck was toin up
for u distance of about ono hundred yards.
A freight train which came up shortly alter
the accident had a car of ties and another of
iron for the Union Pauilie , but it wns promtly
ippropriutcd and used in repairing the Ira -if.
The track was cleared for the p.issago of
trains shortly after midnight.
C. M. Itarl nnd family of Council Bluffs
were on the train but wcro uninjured. Mrs.
[ Inrl suffered a severe nervous .shock.
Had the wind been blowing from the sc nth
Snginocr liodgorson would undoubtedly have
buttered the futo of his Jlroman. Ho wus
lartinlly stunned by the fall , but the wind
) le\v the steam the other way , and ho was
rescued without being scalded. The prompt
iction of the engineer was what prevented
; ho passenger coaches from going down the
jiinlf , and prevented a dreadful catastrophe.
As nearly is can bo ascertained no blame
'or the accident attaches to nny ono. The
ireahing of a llangoor Jumping the rails is
uot to be avoided.
The company will sustain a loss to rolling
stock of about $1,000.
