L. Blcdt-rmnn of this elty. who , until
within the past few days was vice president
of the Fidelity Protective union , has stirred
up a little talk by publishing a letter In ono
of the papers a day or two airo , in which ho
makes some rather startling charges against
several of the best known and most highly
respected citizens of Council Bluffs. Ills
feeling In the matter Is the result of the ab
sorption of the Fidelity Protective union by
the National Fraternal association. The
board of directors of the absorbed company
nt the time the consolidation took place was
composed of Judge Joseph U. Kecd , Fred II.
Ill-own. .1. C. Mitchell , \V. O. WIrt. W. J.
Jameson and Dr. J. II. Cleaver. Mr. Hleder-
: nan claims that ho refused to allow
i Is name to bo considered as a can-
.Delate * for re-election to the olllco of vice
iresldout of the union , because ho saw that
he union was getting Into deep water and
hat It probably would not last very long.
The members Irid not the moans to push tin ;
.msliiFss to the front and compute with other
Ike organizations , and I' , seemed that the
.oclety which had been nivanlr.cd for the ox-
luslve iH'iioIlt of Odd Fellows would have to
Habandoned. . As long as a year ago he
lalmi to have- received an offer from I'rcsi-
lent Crane of tin-Minneapolis Odd Fellows
'iHiirince > company by which it was aL'rcod
hat the board of directors of the Fidelity
'rotectivo union should turn over their poll-
les to the Minneapolis company and receive
JI.KH ( ) each in return. The Fidelity hoard
ofuseel to soil out. ] lut about ton
ilays ago the Fidelity directors held
ii meeting at which it was decided to turn
over the entire business to tbo National
I'raleriiiil association. lilcdorman now states
; n his letter that it is his belief that the
llroctor.s of the e'ompany , whosdMinmos are
inentioncd above , were guilty of boodllng ,
ind Hint they received money from the
National Fraternal in return for their tuni
ng over to the latter company the $ \7. > 0 or
thcrealxmts that was in the treasury , to
gether with the policies of insurance.
U' . O. SVirl , who is mentioned asouoof the
iillcied boodlers. was een yesterday al'tor-
neion anet asked for bis explanation. Ho re-
I'lleul , In ; i vigorous manner , as follows :
"The sum and substance of this hue and cry
is that Hloderman has set out to make an ass
if himself. There was not a cent paid to any
of the directors of the Fidelity Protective
union. Hleelernian was opposed to the
scheme of e'onsolidatlon unless wo would
ill agree that he should have a plae'o In the
lirectory of the now company. None of us
would consent to that. He wasn't the man
feir the place and we all wanted Cleaver.
Cleaver got the place , of course , and then
Hlcdcrman wis ; mad. 1 see he states that
the Masonic Hcnevolent association Is ono of
the purchasers. I wi.sli you would say that
the .Masonic lienevolent association lias not
the slightest e-onnection with the deal. As
for his charges of hood I ing , there Is not the
slightest , truth in them. The National Fra
ternal simply takes our contracts oft' our
hands and agrees to fullil them to the letter
and to extend the business of the old com
pany in a way that wo with our limited capi
tal could not do. "

A local paper that has earned the reputa
tion of being somewhat unreliable ami
extravagant In its news columns has lately
added sensationalism as a new feature. It
announced yesterday morning that the fourth
story of the now Pioneer Implement com
pany's building on Main street collapsed
Saturday night and seriously wrecked the
structure. Wickhani Bros , are the contractors
and ono of ttiom talking about the report
yesterday remarked : "It is a good thing that
that paper does not have much of a circula
tion anywhere and .none at all outside o !
town , or the people of the world
would have a strangely mixed Idea of Coun
cil Hluffs. It's becoming altogether too
frisky and sensational , and Is doing a good
deal of harm to the town. There Is pot the
least particle of truth in the published story
of the wreck of the new building wo arc
erecting for the Pioneer people. It Is true a
pile of .sheeting on the fourth floor that had
been carlssly stacked up on some Joico that
hael been temporarily thrown across the cen
ter girders fell over and some of the planks
dropped itown upon the floor of the next
story. Homo of the loose ) Joico wore dis-
lexlguil and carried down with them. A few
of tlio planks were split and two of the joicc
wore broken , anel that's all the wreck thul
occurred. "Tho damage will amount to about
$1.7. > , but if that story had been published Ir
some papers It would have damaged us and
the building thousands of dollars , for people
would have bulloveel the buildlntr was unsafe ,
and that wo aie engaged In putting up slink )
buildings.

For about a year past complaints hitve
been coming In every llttlo while on accoun
of a man who stationed himself on homo o
the streets within a short distance of the
court house and made a dlsgustlng.cxhibl
tion of himself for the benellt of ladies 01
llttlo girls who might bo passim ; . Last
evening Onlcer Murphy was going alone ,
Sixth avotiuo near the corner of Sixth stree
when ho was met by a llttlo girl about I-
years of age , who told him that she
had Just been Insulted In this way. It was
about ( i ei'eloek and the man could sco the
officer plainly. When ho saw that Murphy's
attention bad been called to him ho took to
his heels and sought refuge in the Catholic
church. The oftlcer followed him , and a few
moments later bad In charge a man whom ho
took for the fellow In question. Ho took
him to tint station , where ho gave his name
as K. W. McCready , and said ho was
a harness maker on . lower Main
street. Ho protested his inno
cence , though iippearanccs were very much
against him , and the police claim to bo able
to Identify him beyond any doubl. Ho is
thought to bo the one who has made a prac
tice of Insulting ladles , and an effort will bo
nmdo to show that the suspicions are correct.
If ho proves to bo the right p.irty It will RO
hard with him , for the Indignant male rela
tive's eif the ladies and children who have
been the victims of his bcsll'illty will sec
that ho gets the punishment ho so richly
deserves.

Ill a recent Interview Brigadier General
\Vlicaton , commander of the Department of
Toxab , said In speaking of the vexatious
character of the eluty on such a frontier and
of the ease with which the regular forces
could be eluded by bandits who have no desire -
sire to tight : "The troop.s In the Held at
picsentaro all the Third cavalry and three
troops of the Seventh cavalry from Fort
Hlloy , Kan. There are camps established at
various iwliils along the border. Captain
Hardlc is located at the Comltas ranch and
Captain Jackson of the Seventh cavalry Is
at Carrizo. Captains Chase and Hunter of
the Third cavalry are patrolling on the rail
road between Pena ami Uiredo and Lleuten-
antn West and l/uighorno are In e-om-
inaiid of two troops from Fort Hlug-
gold and a company of the Twenty-third
Infantry at Itcmlalo. Then there are
smaller detachments at San Ygnaclo
and other points along the border. The KIo
Granelo Is effectually guarded from Laredo
to Fort Kinggold anel Hidalgo. Captain
Dodd's troop of the Third Cavalry is at Fort
Hancock. In short , all the available troops
from this section and the three troops from
Fort Uiloy are in the Held. These are con
stantly on the alert , seeking Information ,
and if bard work will accomplish anything
the bandits will soon be run elovn. The mil
itary and the deputy United States marshals
are- working In harmony , and wo have no
reason to believe that there will bo any eon-
Illct whatever. ' ' In reply to a question the
general said : "Captain Bomke's trip to
Washington was of a confidential nature.
He did not bring any instructions in regard
to the e-ariyinif on of the campaign on the
Iwrdi'r. That matter is left entirely to the
ellscretlon of the department commander. "
He did not think ft probable that other
troops would bo sent to the KIo Grande.
" ' It is reported that ( lenoral Scholicld does
not favor an encampment of lOO.lMM men of
atato troops at the Columbian fair. Tno
assemblage of such a number of men would
mean a large expenditure of money for an
encampment ground , the drainage of it , and
a proper water supply , to s.iy nothing of its
subsistence. There are not tents enough at
the command of the army to supply shelter
for a tenth of such a demand. The Idea
comes from II. Kyel Douglass , adjutant gen
eral of Maryland , but the material obstacles
in the way seem Insuperable1. The general ,
however , thought that fi.OOO regulars could
bo spared to attend tlio fair in order to make
a good showing of our army , but ho does not
and never did approve of mobafulng the
National Uuardsmen at the exposition prin
cipally because he. like many other army
olllcers , does not believe in tbo display of any
soldiers other than tbo regulars.
Dame rumor has It that several officers of
the army have re-cently been reported by
various ousluo.ss firms for repeated reiniss-
ncbs in settling and that the patience of tbo
department in dealing with such neglectful
officers is pretty well exhausted. This sub
ject Is un old ono In the department and is
differently regardcel by secretaries of tbo
army. A late secretary refuscel to prosecute
officers for their delinquencies In this
method and upon ono occasion wrote a New-
York business firm that "tho department is
In no sense a collecting agency. " Heccnt
secretaries , however , showed no patience
with oftlccrs who neglected their private ob
ligations. Tlio private affairs of officers so
Intimately affect their ofncl'il character and
reputation , also their status with brother
olllcers , that it would seem to bo properly
the duty of a secrotaty to enforce honorable
anil fail-observance on their part in private
as well as public business.
The United Sen-vice , London , has the fol
lowing suggestion which is recommended to
our army oftlccrs : "Tho placing In soldiers'
barrack rooms of a card giving the exact elis-
tances to some of the prominent buildings
within sight Is looked upon as an excellent
way of aiding the men unconsciously in
Judging distances. Of course it is not sup
posed that by Itself it would prove of much
uSe ; but combined with the regular instruc
tion , It will materially help men to bettor
appreciate and. more intelligently apply
judciug distance drill , and involuntarily a
soldier will bo likely to got into the habit of
estimating tbo distance of any conspicuous
object that may casually como within his
observation. At the increased ranges ren
dered possible by the introduction of small
bore rifles , correct elevation is likely to bo
more important than exactness in the dlrcc
tion of lire. "
The house military committee has made a
favorable report on a bill to provide that
whenever General Grecly , the present chief
signal ofllccr , vacates his ofllco tils successor
shall have the rank only of lieutenant
colonel.
Colonel Guy V. Henry , the gallant com
inunetcr of tbo famous Ninth cavalry , will
spend his sick leave in the south.
Airs. Gordon , wife of Colonel Gordon of the
Sixth cavalry , has returned to Fort Ne
braska , after spending a few weeks with
relatives In Kansas.

Here is a good war story ; by IJoprcsen-
tatiy.0 Sayors of Texas , as' given by the
Washington Post :
"In the early part of ( ho war , ' ' ho
said , "when nearly every southern man
in the north went back to his own sec
tion , Captain Duncan MeRae , stationed
at Fort Craig , N. M. , was an exception.
His southern birth was known , and he
was regarded with suspicion. Life was
being made very unhappy for him by
the insinuations of his northern com
rades just at the time when our brigade
jmsseel near Fort Craig on its way from
Texas into Missouri. Captain McRao's
battery opposed us , and I never saw men
light with greater bravery than was
shown In that brief buttle by McRao and
his men. Out of the entire company only
live men escaped alive. MoKae was
killed , his body falling alongside of his
guns.
"Under a Hag of truce u union oflicor
came across the battlefield. I met him
and happened to know him. lie told mo
in the course of our conversation that
Meltao on the previous night hael spoken
to ills comrades of their suspicions , and
had saiel that ho proposed to prove his
loyalty em the morrow by his death. 'I
shall never leave the battlefield alive , '
ho said. Wheiii norning ) came he
seemed unusually happy. 'I have seen
my specter in a dream , ' ho said , 'and
now I know that welcome death will
come.1 And so it did. Tlio man had
sacrificed himself'J-ather than endure
the imputations cast.on his loyalty.
"What became eif the guns ? They
wore thrown down uwull. I know whore
they are , anel I hiWey a letter In my
pcoKot now asking me to see the War
department and have1 them given into
the custody of the atato e > f Texas. "

A batch of manuscript belonging to
the late cavalry ollle.'L'r ! General J. Irving
Gregg , formerly of l owisbnrg , Pa. , has
been found and has' 'created quite a sen
sation among Pennsylvania Grand Army
men. It Includes a'copy of the report ef
the then Colonel Gregg to General Mc-
Clellan , when the latter commanded the
Army of the Potomac. Colonel Gregg
was detailed as commander of the Me- :
Clellan outposts , and while occupying
that position discovered that General
Johnston eif the rebel army was moving
on McClellan's Hunk. IIo reported the
movement to McClellan at emeu , hut the
latter etonld not he convinced of the ac
curacy of Gregg's report , anel did not
take the necessary precautions.
Threet days after Gregg submitted his
report McClellan found emt to his sorrow
that the subordinate olllcor was correct.
Johnston suddenly attacked the union
forces on their Hunk and MeClellan was
forced teyetreat. The celeibratcel seven
days f'ghtlng ' in the Peninsula ensued ,
tlio Ktuthernors pursuing the union army
to the James river , where ) the harel-
fought battle ofMalvern hlli foil oweu.
McClollun was relieved and Pope , who
was placed In command , met Johnston at
Hull Run and wai fearfully routed. It
Is contended that hud General MeClellnn
taken the advice of G.rgg when the lat
ter llrst reported Johnston's con
templated move on the Hank of the
union forces. Richmond could huvobvcn
taken and the backbone of the rebellion
bt-eiken.

Torr.KA , Kan. , January 22. Only senator
ial candidates and their workers remained
on the Hold of the legislative battle today.
Most of the members of tbo legislature
passed Sunday at their homes. The sena
torial situation is the only interesting thing
in view now , the two rival houses of the
legislature having determined to make no
elTort to settle the muddle In which they llnel
themselves until after tbo election of senator.
The senatorial situation Is quite as much of a
muddle as the situation in tlio house. The
populists do not know whether to nominate
a democrat or a straight populist. The ro-
rmhlle'uns don't know whether to nominate a
republican or a democrat , and tbo live demo
crats who holel the balance of power on Joint
ballot .don't know whether they want a
stilwart democrat or a fuslonlst. None of
th-sc ! questions will be determined until to
morrow , when all three parties will hold
caucuses. The democrats now hold the key
to the senatorial situation , and they will
pnbably join with the republicans In the
"loctioa of a stalwart democrat either A.
A. Harris of Fort Scott or Bailey Waggoner
of Atchison.
The republicans are willing to make al
most any kind of a deal with the democrats ,
if by so doing they can only euchre the pop
ulists.
