People living In the northern part of the city are complaining on account of the large number of tramps that Infest their neighbor hood. The whole city Is alive with them now , large numbers being ordered out o town every day by the police. The North western yards and round house have been n favorite camping ground for them , As soon as they arc ordered out of the yards they strike off In a northerly direction , and for the past two or three days they have been camping around Big Lake. The people who live there profess to bo afraid to stir out ol their homes day or night and have imploret the police for more protection. Other towns In this vicinity seem to be suffering in like manner. Sheriff Campbcl of Mills county sent word to the police thai on Thursday several stores In Glonwood were broken Into by professional burglars and about $1,000 worth of silks , boots , shoes and the like wore taken. The same night a store nt Henderson In the same county was entered and about $250 worth of property taken. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ST. PAUL'S (1U1I.I ) IN CO UK. I'orty Society Girls ( live a Mlimtrcl Per formance lit I > olmn > ' . The "Ebony Warblers , " heretofore known ns St. Paul's guild , gave a minstrel per formance at Dohany's opera house last Fri day evening. The novel spectacle of forty society beauties , who had temporarily for saken the rouge box for the stove polish , was tremendously Interesting to the public , and when the curtain rose the forty darkles on the stage and something like 1,000 spec tators In the parquet and balcony , viewed each other with mutual Interest. Miss May Davenport ocupled her share of the center of the stage and took the part of the Inter locutor , showing all the Ignorance -nnd curiosity which an Interlocutor must have In order to give the end women a chance to perpetrate their jokes. McMlamcs Cummlngs and Mullls manipu lated 'the bones , and Mrs. Bovver and Miss Grace Doming thrummed the tambourines. To these four Is duo the credit for the success of a largo portion of the entertainment , for they had spent many sleepless nights In col lecting a store of witticisms whoso whiskers should not bo gray , and their labors had been crowned with success. While a chest nut could now and then be heard drop on the platform , for the most part their "gags" were new and good. The hits which they gave almost every one of any local prom inence were highly enjoyed by every one , with the possible exception of three or four society youths , who had rented a box and como armed with a telescope , n greased pig and other things , which were calculated to disturb the serenity of the brunettes before them. To them It was a most funereal affair , and one of the best parts of the enter tainment was the mortification which hung about that box In great chunks. Two of the other boxes contained a partv of eight > oung men , who had made special preparations to bo there. They wore full dress suits , scarlet neckties , and plate glass diamonds that might have been used for paper weights during business hours. The complexions and general bearing of these young men Indicated that they might bo the proprietors of prosperous crap Joints or that they might have made their millions as porters on board a Pullman sleeper. But It It was a mistake. They were Hon. Thomas Bowman , T. E. Casady , E. A. Trout- man , F. T. Seybert , E. A. Wlckham , Perry Badollet , F. II. Evans and L. Zurmuehlln , Jr. Their entrance threw a shadow over the audience , and many thought It would rain. But It merely thundered. The young ladles devoted considerable at tention to the occupants of the boxes , and the bcnuel showed that the young men who hod had the forethought to blacken their faces had decidedly the best of It. for. as Is well known , a darky never blushes. The following was the piogram presented by the young ladles : Overture Trocadero Orchestra PART I.

The city for the past week has been full of local amusement topics In various forms , such as minstrel shows and others too nu merous to mention , but not to bo for gotten was the amusing sight at the Boston store silk sale last Friday This week won't be any less exciting , as the syndicate bale Is being revived dally with new shipments of merchandise nt prices fur below compe tition.

Atkins , manager for the Nebraska Telephone company , has the promise of new quarters and a brand new multiple switch board. The latter Is now being-constructed In Chicago by the Western Electric com pany. C. E. Yost , president of the Ne braska Telephone company , has decided that Council Bluffs Is deserving of bettor tele phone service. In order to furnish this It will be necessary to have larger and better quarters. The Baldwin block has been se lected , and work will begin at once getting the rooms on the fifth floor ready for the now switchboard , which will probably bo delivered by May 15. It will be first-class , finished In mahogany nnd will have the very latest Improvements. There will necessar ily be many such In the way of new cables and poles. When all complete Mr. Yost says the Improvements will cost about $10,000. Mr. Atkins says he believes that with the new office and system he will have 500 subscribers before May 1 , 1895. One thing about the now system which will meet with the hearty approval of all who use the telephone is that "Central" will do all the ringing after the subscriber gives the first short ring. Any ring after the first will be taken as a signal from the subscriber for disconnection , and he will bo discon nected whether he wants to or not. He will have no trouble , however. In calling up cen tral again and getting another connection. Under the present system a great deal of Inconvenience has been caused the public by the Inability of the girls at the central of fice to tell whether the subscriber was ring ing for central or for the man at the other end of the line , and it must be confessed that they usually appeared to give them selves the benefit of the doubt. Now all rings are Intended for central , and there will consequently be no reason for the delay that has heretofore been such a drawback to the constant use of the telephone. Settle Don n. Now 'hat Kelly's army has come and gone and none much the worse off for their visit , let us settle down to business once more and profit by the great lesson they have taught us. There is no doubt that a great deal of poverty nowadays Is brought on by extravagance , and oh , there's the moral : Don't be extravagant , but go to 919 Main street and T. B. Hughes will show- you how to save your money , whether It's shoes , furnishing goods or hats you want. I'uriiHfo Work. Mr. W J. Lauterwasser , well known to bo one of the best furnace men In this section , has engaged with P. C. DeVol. He and John Scott will work together , and It goes with out saying that whatever they do will be perfectly done. Now Is a good time to look up the furnace question. It. O. Gritlmui Ilxplnlnn. COUNCIL BLUFFS , la. , April 27. To the Editor of The Bee : Your headlines to the dispatch from Atlantic April 26 , "Woodmen Advance Agent Weakens Graham of Coun cil Bluffs Says Kelly , Baker and Spead Arc Sharpers , " do mo and also the Woodmen of the World an Injustice. I said nothing of the kind. I did say , "They were bharp , shrewd men , " In fact , the entire dispatch In regard to what Is attributed to me Is distorted wl'h the Intention of putting a different meaning to what I really did say. The reason why I came homo was because my business demanded It and not because I was becoming "disgusted. " I have only very little more to bay In recard to this matter , and that Is that If the Rock Island roud wishes to retain the friendship of the business men and shippers throughout tills section .of the country It had better call General Superintendent Dunlap In and let some one else attend to the business of the road , for If one-tenth of what I have heard Is true his only object Is to Incite Kelly's men to do some unlawful act that there may bo an excuse to arrest and Imurlson or to call upon the mllltla of the state , pri marily to protect their property , but In real ity to create a riot. Now. only ono thing more. Why does General Superintendent Dunlap travel with an armed body of men from station to station without having them icgularly commissioned and sworn as peace officers ? V < > ry respectfully yours , R. 0. GRAHAM. Death Is an unb'dden visitor. Will ho call tomorrow , next week , next month , or next year ? ask yourself.

Magulre , California They should bo treated with humanity and respect. It should not bo assumed that they are coming for un lawful purposes. Their financial condition should not be counted against them , and they should have that respectful consideration that American cltlzbns are entitled to who pet tlon for law a they think will Improve their condition. McCall , Massachusetts The Coxey army ought to be given a pleasant reception. Coombs , New- York I do not bt > lleve that Co\ey will attempt , to violate the law. His scheme Is visionary enough to the Intelligent masses , but I have never thought ho would attempt to commit any violence. Dartholdt , Missouri They are misguided but earnest men. They should bo treated kindly and furnished shelter , but congress can do nothing for them , and cannot bo ex pected to. Their appeal will have no effect upon the members , although they have con siderable reason for making the demands they do. Cooper , Indiana Theirs Is a mistaken theory , yet the people have been given much Justification to do as they are doing by political platforms and stump speakers. Cannon , Illinois I think congress should give these people one hearing. When this Is done there will be nothing left for them to do but to return to their homes. Of course , I do not advocate the government taking care of these people while they are here. Geary , California I look upon the coming of the Industrial army to Washington as a matter of so llttlo consequence as to bo hardly worth consideration. I have given the matter no thought at all. McCleary , Minnesota I think members of the army should be treated In the same manner as any other American citizens , with proper safeguards for their good ccnduct. I am not in favor of an. appropriation by the government , however , to feed these men while they nio here , Kiefcr , Minnesota I think that the gov ernment should hee tl-at those men are properly housed and fed while here , given an opportunity to present their grlevance- and that we should In every wav endeavor to convince them of the Impossibility of granting their demands. Hartman , Montana I can sec no objection to giving these people a hearing , but so far as making any appropriation for their sus tenance while here Is concerned , I would ob ject to that. Johnson , North Dakota I do not think the government should establish the prece dent of appropriating any money for the support of an Idle body of men like Coxey's army. I think If they arc let alone they will ultimately return to their homes. Cummlngs , New York As long as they obey the laws , grant them the name privi lege as other folks no more , no less.

( Spe cial Telegram to The Bee. ) As the result of a battle with burglars In this city this mornIng - Ing one man was Instantly killed , another was fatally hurt and n third received n flesh wound. The dead and Injured are : . AIWA WHITNEY , city marshal , dead. PETER JOHNSON , fatally wounded. J. B. LYON , shot In the side. The tragedy was the most terrible ever oc curring In this vicinity. In the last few- weeks many petty burglaries have been com mitted here , the latest being that of J. B. Lyon's grocery store Wednesday evening. William Henderson was shortly placed under watch nt his residence , where two strangers , named Johnson and Davis , have been stay- Ing. Certain biisplclous appearances led to the swearing out of a search warrant by Mr. Lyon to find the stolen property. The warrant was placed In Marshal Whit ney's hands. After keeping the building guarded during the night , he with a posse entered the Hem'crson house at G o'clock this morning. The occupants offered resistance nnd opened fire , which was returned by the olllcers , there being thirty or more shots fired. One of the burglars' bullets pierced the breast of Whitney , killing him Instantly , Johnson received four bullets , one In each thigh , one In the shoulder and another through the lungs. Ills wounds are doubt less fatal , although ho still lives. Davis broke and ran and a dispatch from Love-land says that a man partially an swering his description boarded the train nt that point this morning. This vicinity Is nevertheless being thoroughly scoured. Henderson and his wife are under arrest having waived examination , and have been sent to the county Jail at Logan. Excitement Is at fever heat and there Is much strong talk of lynching , as Whitney was a popular and most efficient officer. A reward has been raised for the capture of Davis. Davis Is supposed to have come from Grand Island or Fremont , Neb. , and John son's homo is supposed to be Rock Island , III. Both are desperate characters , while Henderson Is on ex-svvltchman and does not bear a savory reputation , having been Idle for six months and more. The plunder stolen from Lyon's store was found concealed In and about the Henderson residence , so that no doubt exists that the searching party were on the right track. Being armed with the search warrant , the officers of course hod a right to enter the house , and the reslstenco offered by the men when they knew this fact shows their desperate character. Whitney was about 35 years old and un married , living with his mother and sister , who are prostrated with grief. The entire community Is wrought up , and If opportunity offered would no doubt do violence to the perpetrators of the violent act. Lynching has been talked strong this after noon notwithstanding the removal of Hender son to the county Jail at Logan , but It Is likely that calm counsels will prevail. Whit ney's popularity as an officer extended through all classes of citizens except the extreme tough clement. A report came In from a searching party at 3 o'clock p. in. that several farmers north of town about six miles have seen an armed man corresponding somewhat to Davis' de scription , and that he had drawn nnd threat ened to use his gun If not permitted to pass. The farmers are aroused and out on his trail. A large reinforcement left here within half an hour , and will search till dark. There is a fence north of hero ten or twelve miles to which this man Is doubtless heading. A coroners' Jury was empanelled this morning and heard the testimony of several eye-witnesses to the affray , but reached no conclusion , and adjourned until Monday afternoon In anticipation of effecting the capture of Davis. A largo reward has been subscribed by the citizens , In fact , If money can effect the capture of Davis it will bo forthcoming by the citizens here. ritUVIMO AN AM III.
