Clarkson , commander-ln-cblct of tbe Grand Army of the Uepubllc , returned bomo Saturday night from bis trip through the New England states , whore bo had been Malting the different departments. Ho closed his work there by participating In the Grant celebration In New York City , leading a de tachment of C.OOO old veterans In that re- mnrkablo parade Tlie major cannot bring up a sufficient number ot quallfjlng adjec tives to give proper veil' , to his enthusiasm ovet the display made at the Grant celebra tion. Ho sajs It beat anything ho had over before seen of the kind , and Is content by force of circumstances to let his description go at that. Tbo combination of naval and land display , ho said , made the most Interesting show ever witnessed In this countrj and be dotibta if ( hero was ever a greater number of the mili tary In line at any time , since the close of tbo war. As an Idea to Illustrate the extent of the land parade , he said the old soldiers took up their position on the west side of the boultvurd at 9:30 : a. in. , and at 10 o'clock the head of the procession reached them H was 3 o'clock In the afternoon before their place In the line came along , and they had been standing In position over four bourn , while thousands of marching men passed by. He went Into Hie saddle at 9 o'clock , and at C 1.1 that evening turned over his horse to the owner at his hotel , being mounted nearly ten bourn. After the old toldlers wheeled Into line thc > y had nrarly thie\ . miles to march In retching the monument and countermarch ing around It. The major hald that while the veteran * ) were waiting for their position In line to reach them they were saluted by every organi/atlon which passed , and all along the Hue they were the recipients of special honors from tbe countless thousands of apcctntoto. I'ltOUD OF HIS POSITION. "I saw by 'Doc' Haynes' letter In The Ilco this morning , " said the major , "that ho thought I looked proud ildtng at the head of the old toldlcis In that parade. I don't know how I looked , but I am willing to admit that I felt proud to ride at the head of a contingent which had contributed HO much to the greatness of the man whcfle memory the people were honoring that day " The Hudson river , which flows by tlie park and apparently within a stone's throw of the monument , according to the major , wno packed with vessel.1 ! of every description. Ho said several of the government's war plilps were theio at anchor , with ahips from other countilcs. while the merchant marine , gaj ly dpcorntcd with banners , came up In the evening and created n spectacle one wit ncsslng It will never forget The gun boils llred their heavy gilns at Intervals during the day and otherwise contributed to the solemnity of the occasion. Ibo major said It seemed to him that there were millions of people at the park vvlure the exercises took place , but that tlu crowd began to disperse after the pru- | ii tn 1 egun. He said the wentber was veiy uncomfortable , the wind blowing almost r. Kilo , nnd the roads BO dusty that at he clew ? of the parade It was dlfllcult to tell v hethcr the marchers were black or vvhlin. lie said the ciovvds were so great that travel on the elevated roads was congested at nn eatlj hour and all trains abandoned for a laiso portion of the day In the oven- lug. lo\vo cr , the clcvatcJ service was mun b ttci rnd assisted very materially In ( jot ting the people back to the city.

A public spiritualistic meeting was held last evening at Patterson hall which brought out a large following of those Imbued with a desire ro penetrate the mstcrlcs of the silent utucen , The meeting was held under the personal direction of Dr. P. S. George , secretary of the State Spiritualistic association , with headquarters at Lincoln , He wai nrslated In the dcmorstratlons of rrsychoemetrlc read ings and tests by Mrs. Mary Goodrich of Hos- ton and Prof. Unngdon of St. Joseph , Mo Prof. George was Introduced to the audl- cnco by Prof. I.nngdon , and talked upon the subject of spiritualism for considerably over an hour. He stated that spiritualism was based upon bible truths , and quoted several extracts from Paul to substantiate his as sertions. Ho said that In ancient times the Pharisees were believers In spiritualism whllo the Saraceni were nonbellevcrs. , He said that at the present day , unfortunately , the world was burdened with a preponder ance of Saracens , and that there was a largo membership of the latter fraternity In Omaha. Daniel of biblical hlstor ) , he contended , was the greatest trance medium of his time. Ho possessed the rare accomplishment of going Into a trance at the slightest pretext and could see whllo In this condition almost anything when Riven a stimulus thereto. Prof. Gcorga stated that he was on friendly spenklng terms with a large number of de parted shades and that ho frequently got lira from them which were of great value In his vocation , namely , that of a magnetic healer. Prof. George talked at some length upon the subject of slate manifestations. He paid they were the only visible method of com munication to the pb > slcal world which had met with the approval of departed kindred of the follcme'rH of true spiritualism The speaker tnld of numerous times he had been Imprisoned under the state laws for praetlc- Ing his art , and asserted that he would con tinue to do business according to his own peculiar notions , the lawo to the contrary notwithstanding. At the conclusion of the professor's ad- ure'ss Mrs. Goodrich gave a practical demon stration of the spiritualistic theorj accord- ng to her practices. After pHelng herself In a semi-trance she deciphered the mjstle form of onu Christina Olson The depirted sihado of Ctristliu wished to communicate with a relative In the audience , but upon a search being made she appeared to be a stranger. A man In the last roof seats was at length persuaded to allow his mind to drop back several generations In his fam ily hlstor } , and he recollected he had once POSPPPS d a giandmother by that name Ile > manifested a lively desire to know what sbc Hid to siy. The Interest , howevei. which the lamented Olsen previously manifested In Her iclatlvos appeared te > dwindle away , and tlio communication was veiled In nnslerj to her earthly progenj. A perbon by the name of Charley , who was also evidently a stianger in Omaha was Introduced to the audience , but he proved to be a misfit. There was no one- found willing to claim him as n relative Two brothers , Isaac and Jacob , occupied a row minutes of the session , and Jennie An derson , who hail depaited this life many years picvlous on account of a throat afllictlon , was latiodiiced by the medium. A person In the audience asserted that his name was Anderson and that he had at ono time poases eii a cousin hevcial times removed by the name of Jennie. Jennie , however , had been a spinster and bad died at a ripe old ago. The eaube of hei demise was also said to be due to the weakness of accumulated jears Her throat had nevei troubled her In the least. The medium at this point suggested that a little slow music on the piano might be appreciated by the spirits who knocked for admission , but the spooks whom sh" thought to beguile In this manner , thought differently. They left the hall In a huff , for the medium announced shortly afterward that the seanco was at tin end. It v\as expected that some manifestations In the form of table rapplngs would bo given , but due to the fact that the hall was lighted by pas , nnd the Jets did not admit of any turning down , this feature of the evening \\a-j.eliminated.

City Treasurer Udwiiuta Is arranging for his new bond , which will be' ready to present to tliu new council foon after Its organiza tion. The fact that Mr IMwards furnished a guaranty bond , whbh ho Is obliged to renew In the middle of his turn , taUcn In conjunc tion ulth the large reduction made In bis salary by the new chailcr leduccg his net salary to a comparatively puiall margin. Mr Kih.ards Bays that he lias made anangcments with Iho guarant ) company to cancel his old bond , but that his rebate for the unoxplred portion of the term will bo very small , Ily the time ho pays tils premium on his new bond big net salary will oe reduced to about J2.000. Under these rliciiniBtancM the tieasurer Is of the opinion that the cltj council should lake Roino action Inward dividing the burden that the treasurer Is thux compelled In carry. Mr. Kclwards thinks that the nalnrj that ho will have left , If ho Is comrelle'd to pay all ( tils additional expenpo hlmnelf , Is In no measure proportionate to the responsibilities of lib ) olllce. As the city Is directly a gainer by having a guaranty bond ho thinks that the city should pay a portion of the expense of securing It , Dilution * \ \ OIIIHII'N I.lz/lo Sblclda , a young woman whn has hem ) living with a small colony of ncgicea near Twelfth and Chicago it roots , was ar rested jcfttnlay for being drunk.

The passenger In an Omaha street car rarely thinks of the small army of men requisite to serve his comfort and conven ience as he bowls along over the Iron rails. Neither docs he ponder over the workings of the myttcricus power which darts through the slender wire overhcid , and Infuses life Into the revolving wheels. He may ask the conductor why the company docs not run more trains over the line , or describe the motorman In language more forcible than polite ahould the machinery break down , but his Intelcst seldom goes further than this. If the person of an Inquiring turn of mind would follow the miles of wires which stretch along the streets to the source fiom which they receive their power , ho would see things of a nature which would open his eyes. At Twentieth and Nicholas streeta Is situated the central power station of the Omaha Street Railway company , and It would be difficult to Imagine a plant better equipped for the work It performs. The pleasure of a visit to the power house Is enhanced If taken at night. Upon en tering the large brick building which covers half a squaie the senses of slfht and hear ing are assailed upon every hand. Electric bulbi flash their sparkling rajs throughout the high celllngcd dingy room. Huge arms of steel lilt baek and forth In the dim light like ancient Tltatw at play. Busily engaged In tending their mammoth charges are the engineers , pigmies In size when compaicd with the ponderous machines which cause the earth to tremble as the big fly wheels revolve Along the north wall of the building are arranged the dynamos , and a sj tcm of ptil- Icjs connect them with the fl > wheels of the driving power , nnd here with a subdued hum the olecti lolly Is generated and eent sllentlj over the wlica to the remote corners of the city. BIGINS : TO INQUIRE Ao soon as the visitor becomes accustomed to the jar and rumble of machinery and the blE : > of steam , and banishes the thought that he may be blown Into eternity at the next throb of the engine , ho begins to ask questions He learns among othei thlnga that tht big Corlobs engine along the went wnll Is capable of generating 600 lioise power , that It dilvcs seven dynamos , each with a capacity of giving out 115 horee power as measured In electricity. Ho finds there aie two Westlnghouse engines each one or which would put 250 bnrsen to the blush In feitn of Eticngth Thcte engines In turn drive two djnamos aggregating 4GO horse pow er The chl"f object of the visitor's attention , however , Is the enormous engine which ttead- Il > performs Its work In the southeastern portion of the room. This engine he lb In formed by the courteous attendant la the one which forrrerly drove the entire cable sys tem of the tlty which was abandoned some years ago It wab then located In the Twen tieth and Harpcy street power house but baa flnce boon reiroved and Is now devoting Its energies to the generation of electricity. The engine Is n ted at GOO horse power , but upon oceaslon is said to be capable of 700. It In connected with a single dynamo which Is perhaps the largest In the western country It was manufactured In St. Louis oxprcsslj for the Omaha Street Railway company , and although never put to the test Is said to be capable of generating the equivalent in elec tricity of GOO horse power. LIGHTNING UNDDR CONTROL On the south wall of the room are arranged the switch boards with their multiplicity of wires , Knobs and handles , by which the In visible power produced by the dynamos is placed under complete control. Every danger In the form of chance bolts of lightning which might strike the trolley wires and In turn burn out the dynamos la guarded against by arresters. By means of the switch board the currents may bo diverted from the ma chines to different car lines , or centralized upon any ono of them , or at short notice cut entirely from all of them. On tbo south side of the building Is located the battery of fourteen boilers. It Is capaule of producing a steam pressure of 2,000-horeo power. Railroad tracks run along the alley dlroctly In the rear of tbo building and the coal which Is used In the furnaces Is thrown Into the building from the cars , thus causing tbo least amount of handling possible. "Our plant , I suppose , ought to be of con siderable Interest to sightseers , although ac customed to It as we employes of the com pany are , wo acldom think of It In any way except to know that the machinery is kept In perfect running order , " said Engineer Carl Benson when addressed upon the subject of his Iron pets. "The engines are usually started shortly before H o'clock In the morning , and do not close down until 1 o'clock the following morning In order that the engines may io ) run for the twenty-hour stietch , 3G5 days In a year , w have to watch tbem very elosoly. They must be In perfect repair. Ono of tbo small Westlnghouae engines Is generally inn all night in order to keep alive the Incandescent llghtcj about the plant. "In addition to this plant , the company Ins an auxlllaiy power station nt Twenty- second and Uard streets. Ibis power house formerly belonged to the Omaha Motor Rail way company , but was absorbed Into the larger company several years ago The plant has been operated but very little It Is In excellent condition , however , and Is always In reudlnccs to bo started at a mo ment's notice- should the large plant break down. The Twenty-second street plant has ono 400-horso power Corlcss engine , and ono 200-hnne power engine of the same make Tlicto engines run eight 115-borBo po.ver dynamos. " "GROOMING THE CARS Tbo cast half of the building Is devoted tea a car repository Here , after the day's lun la completed the cars are shunted nn numcr oils chart tracks and the cartleannti , machin ists and icpalreu take charge All thess men on the ulght fchlft arc under the charge of William Musgrove. They work from 7 o'clock at ntglit until 7 In the morning Thirty-two trains are houeed nightly at the Twentieth and Nicholas street power house , eighteen at Twentieth and Hauioy , and all of the cars on the South Omaha and Sherman avenue line nro taken care of at the Ames avenue barn , Tbo conductors and motormcn on the vari ous lines report for duty at tbo stations where their trains are housed Secretary Goodrich of the company stated a fen days ago that there were nearly COO employes on the monthly pay roll. These names are ex clusive of tbo track repairers and others who work at Irregular Intervals. As to the general curiosity of the public to know the amount rung up by a conductor during his ten hour run. It la stated Indi rectly that from $10 to $20 Is turned In as a good day's work on the smaller lines , while the larger cross-town roads tut ? 35 and J40 closely. During unusual Increases of traffic , such as Is experienced during state fair week ; the amounts sometimes turned In by an Industrious conductor will foot up closely upon } 00 The fares collected by the con ductors arc given to the foreman at each car bouse , together with a trip statement , taken from the automatic registering device In the end of each car. The amounts col lected by tbo man are kept In the Individual sacks and are then turned over to the sec retary and treasurer of the company , where the amouuts are checked up with the trip sheet. It Is said that Omaha's syttem of street railways will rank among thi brat of tboso In use In any metropolitan city of the United States. llt Alumni HlN I'miill ) .

It Is the Intention of the department to commence work as soon aa the plans are completed. According to the agreement made at the time the property was purchased the owners of tbo buildings now on the ground will bo given thirty days In which to remove them after being notified by tbo department , A notice to clear the ground Is expected to arrive almost any day , With the commencement of work on the poat- oinco business In this city will pick up amazingly and local merchants are very anxlouu for tbo work to start. Some time ago the 1'oslolllce department advertised for bids for quarters for the post- olflce Only two blda were received and , after belnK examined here , the bids were sent on to Washington for action by the postal officials. The bid submitted by the owner of the build ing now occupied by tbo postolllco was so much lower than the other bid that , nil things being considered , the department has decided to remain In the present quartern until the now building Is completed. The lea&o entered Into by the government and the owner stlpulatc9Nthat the government may abrogate the lease after giving sixty days' notice , otherwise the lease Is to run for flvo y ears.

It Is expected that the Ice com panies will file a protest against being compelled - polled to pay $15 a month for the testing of samples of their product. However , If that portion of the ordinance Is enforced consumers may look for an advance In the pi Ice of Ice , as several of the dealers have Intimated that thev do not Intend paying for chemical tests if there Is any way of getting out of It. t'r ( o biiii > r\lNp Mrci'tH. The scheme which was proposed by Coun cilman Barictt , but not. yet accepted by the other mcmbcm of the body , to place the street commissioner's department In charge of tlw city engineer Is very well thought of and may jet be adopted. Without easting any reflections on the ability ot Street Com missioner Ross Councilman Barrett thinks that tbo city could be saved a large amount of money annually by having the engineer personally superintend the work of street re pairs. Mr. Barrett cites several Instance" ! where woik was done last year which will have to be dene all over again this year. He thinks that If a practical engineer attends to the repairing of gutters and the filling of washouts the work when completed will be thoroughly done and will la1 * ! for a num ber of years The spring rains have done considerable damage to a number of the unpaved - paved Btreots which were washed out Icot year. Tho&2 who fnvor the proposid chaugo say that If this filling was properly done unshonia In the same place v.ould not be so frequent , thus a having to thn street repair fund would bo made. The question will most likely be brought up again , as a numbei of eouncllmen are known to favor Mr. Barrett's Idea. Phil Kearney post and the Woman's Relief corps will meet this evening. A meeting of the Live Stock exchange has been called for this afternoon. Several members of the city council will Join the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben tonight.

During the month of April Armour & Co. purchased 12C cars , 2,818 head , of cattle - tlo on this market. Tor the same month a year ago this firm purchased only 1,795 head at this point. The spring loundups In Montana will com mence May 15 and will continue well Into the summer. Unusually heavy bhlpments of cattle to this market are looked for during the summer and fall. Total shipments of feeders for April num bered 400 cars , 1-1,203 head , besides 1,751 head bought hero and driven out , making a total of 10,044 cattle1. As compared with April , 1S90 , when only 0.1B3 bead were shipped out , this Is a most gratifying show ing. As more of these cattle were shipped to Nebraska points than total shipments to all points last year. It shows that the times are Improving rapidly In this state.
