STARTS IN ON TRACK LAYING Omaha Bridge and Terminal Company Begini Operation ! . MEN WORKING ON FOURTEENTH STREET Company Acnnlrlnw Land In the Im mediate Vicinity , \Vhlrh Will Be Udell for Yard * and Depot I'nrposrs. Wednesday morning the Omaha Bridge & Terminal company commenced work upon the railroad tracks along the right of way granted It at the council meeting Tuesday night. Men were put upon the work on North Fourteenth street and the construc tion of the track to Eighth street and Capitol tel avenue will bo pushed as rapidly as the climatic and other conditions will permit. The etrip of track that Is being laid ex tends north and south of Nicholas street on Fourteenth. The northern terminus Is at the alley north of Nicholas street and the southern end will run Into a track on Four teenth operated by the Chicago , St. Paul , ( Minneapolis & Omaha road. Fifteen men arc engaged on this work , the gang being composed of some of the regular section men employed by the Terminal company and the remainder being hired on the spot. "This la poor weather for railroad building , " said Superintendent Nichols , "but we propose to do as much track building as possible * long as the ground Is frozen. If the weather was good and there were no other obstacles we could have the double track laid to Eighth street and Capitol avenue in ninety days , but under the circumstance * It Will probably take much longer. Anticipate * Some Trouble. General Manager Webster anticipates that bo will find difficulty In running his tracks across private property after the tracks leave Fourteenth street. He Is endeavoring to buy oil the land ho needs , and in every case where the ground cannot be purchased bo will resort to condemnation proceedings. Those proceedings will be the main cause of any delay in the track construction. The route of the track of the company has been somewhat changed. It was to run couth of Fourteenth street to Hurt nud then switch to the southeast , and this Is the ( route of the right of way. Since ordinance Introduced the right-of-way was troduced , however , General Manager Webster has secured the option on a strip of land running on the south side of thp Union Pacific shops , which la owned by the Union Pacific. This will enable the com pany to run Its tracks off Fourteenth street at Cumlng street , allowing Fourteenth , be tween Cumlng and Hurt , to > be es unob- ptructcd as It is now. General Manager Webster IB already en gaged , also , in negotiations for the purchase of one or'more sites for a freight depot. Two of these are rocated In the block bounded by Davenport and Chicago , Eleventh and Twelfth streets , and the other is situated In the block directly to the northeast. One , two or all three of these sltea may be used. Work on the depot , or depots , will not be commenced until the track Is laid. The question of a passenger depot la one for the future , but such a depot la to be built , ao saya Mr. Webster. Wltliont Serlonn Itcunltii. The Incoming fast mall on the North western bumped into a tourist car on Union Pacific No. 1 at the Council Bluffs transfer , but without serious results. The mall train was ten minutes ahead of time and hit the tourist car at the north side of the transfer. A car repairer , Shears , who was at work In the car , was slightly injured by being dashed against the end of the car , but none of the passengers were disturbed. The damage wu confined to a few broken bars on the pilot ot the engine and some broken crockery in the dining car. Hocking Valley Iloart to Be Sold. COLUMBUS , 0. , Jan. 11. The Evening Dispatch today says : The Hocking Valley & Toledo railroad will be sold In this city on February 24 under the order of the United States court by the spe cial master commissioners.

The Central Passen ger association was in session here today discussing , among other things , the aboli tion of second-class rates between Chicago nd New York. The proposition met with a good deal of opposition , and there Is very little likelihood of Its being adopted for the present at least. Pnnderirood for General Manager BALTIMORE , Jan. 11.

To the Editor of The Bee : There are times when silence Is goldon. And since County Attorney Shields has seen fit to reflect on me in hla Inter view in your Tuesday morning's leeue , I think it proper to give the faot * . In doing so I shall have to Indulge in a llttlo bit of political history. In 18S5 , without my knowledge or consent and agaioet my protest , I was nominated at the democratic county convention for the office of county judge. There was not the allghtest chance to elect an/body that year against Judge McCullough. I was per- tagalnst Judge McCulloch. I was pcr- help elect the democratic candidate for sheriff. I was entitled to renomtnatlon In 1887 and could have had It without any opposition. I declined to stand for it and personally solicited Mr. ShWd , who was then in Mr. Cowln's office , to become a candidate. After consulting with his friends he decided to go Into the contest for the nomination. I used every endeavor to com pass his nomination. By dint ot hard work on the part of his friends he was nom inated by two votes ever C. J. Smyth , his main competitor. He waa elected. After the election , recognizing .what I had dona for him , ho asked me what he could do for me. I said nothing for me , but If he wished to he could give the position of copyist In the office to a friend ot mine , which he did. Our relations since that tlmo have always been friendly. Under such circumstances I felt that I bad a right to recognition in the event ot hia election oa county attorney. In about a week after the convention which nominated him I met him at the entrance to the New York Life building. I said to him : "George , I would like to epcak to you , " and , taking him aside , I said : "If you should be elected I would like to have one of the deputyshlpa. " He said : "I have mode no promises yet , but there is coo man I would like to appoint If I am elected. " He also said : "I would like also to appoint Lee Helslejr , what do you think of him ? " I told him I thought that would be all right , ae Leo kad been , voting with us for four or five years and he was a pretty fair criminal lawyer. "Now , " he said , "If I am entitled to a tnlrd , you can have It. " I said , "All right , George. I will go to work. " Mr. Shields now denies this and claims h told me I would have to tnko my chances. This Is not true and since he went bock on Thomas Lee , whom he admits he bad promised , I will leave the public to decide the question of veracity between us. Ot course , I made a thorough personal canvass on hla behalf. About three or four days after election I dropped into Mr. Shields' office , thinking , perhaps , he might want to consult with mo with reference to the other appointments. After I got eeated Mr. Shields spoke up and aid , "Shoemaker , 'there ' seems to be some pposition to you. " I said , "Well , George , who is itT" "Oh , " he said , with a sickly smile , "I cannot tell you , of course. " I felt hen in a moment that he was preparing (0 ( go beck on me and I said , "Well , George , you know the talk we hadt" "Y s , " he eplled ; "I told you , as I told all the rest , hey would have to take their chances. " I " can't told meI said. "George , ybu say you would have to take my chance * . " He re- terated that ho did and eald I had better ; ot some endorsements. I told him I would ; et the endorsements of business men. He said that would be all right , as there was no lurry about the matter. I furnished nlm the endorsement * and jent them to him by a messenger boy. I never spoke to him from that time to this ibout my appointment. He now admits in he interview that ho made on ante-election : > romlse to Thomas Lee , so it appears that 10 did not tell him , or his friends , that le would have to take hla chances. Ho eays he got out of that promise by on honorable arrangement. It would seem so , as 'I ' un derstand they do not speak as they paee by. I am afraid Mr. Shields' Idea of political icnor is a little clouded. The opposition to me came from some tinhorns. " who wer afraid I might be friendly to , or treat fairly , some persons whom the "tinhorns" did not like. Mr. Shields eays In the Interview that he anticipated something like the action taken by Vicksburg command , No. 1 , Union Vet eran union. The guilty conscience needs no , accuser. There are 1,200 old soldiers In Douglas county , end I think they will be thoroughly organized for two years hence. W. S. SHOEMAKER. Lee Replied to Shields. OMAHA. Jan. 11. To the Editor of Th Bee : Regarding the appointment ot hi * as sistants , Mr. Shields Mid In the columns of your yesterday's edition : "I made only one promise , and got out of that by an honorable arrangement. This was my prom ise to Mr. Leo. " Upon the request of several parties I will briefly explain how Mr. Shields got out of his promise to me. Before the election Mr. Shields , having made Inquiries about my abilities on account of my age , and then sayIng - Ing that he was perfectly untlaned that I was able to hold the position , made four un conditional promises or agreements with my friends that he would appoint mo one of his assistants , it elected , upon their pledges that ithoy would support him In the cam paign. Upcn these pledges from Mr. Shields ray friends went in and assisted in his elec tion. tion.When able to read hu ! title clear to the office Mr. Shields changed his tune. I would not ally myself In any way with any of the gamblers and consequently they fought me , fearing , evidently , that unbiased and unpledged service to the county in this office might interfere with the policy that has evidently been adopted for the new ad ministration. So Mr. Shields offered me the appointment , but not unconditionally , as he agreed before hla election , On the con- < > -aTy , he Imposed the ridiculous and absurd condition that before I entered upon the duties of the appointment I put Into his hands a blank resignation , which ho might fill out whenever ho chose , and thus dis charge me. The object of this was obvious , and as I did not propose to be put into the power ot the gamblers of the city ot Omaha In this way , I refused to comply with the condition , and ho refused to appoint me. Under these circumstances it is reassuring to know that Mr. Shields feels as to his re peated unconditional promteo to appoint me that "ho got out of It by an honorable arrangement. " THOMAS F. LEE.

It is expected that the rush will recur later in the week , how ever , and the experiment of sending a man out en the road to como In on the train will be tried. There Is some question whether the work that one man will bo able to do on the train between Burlington and Omaha will be sufficient to offset the loss of his services in the local office during an en tire day.

LACKS DRAWING QUALITIES Only ThoMc Who Arc Pcrnonnlly In terested Attend the Domey Trial In United States Court. The evidence against Frank M. Dorsey continues to drag on In the United States court. It had boon expected that the defense - fenso would got an Inning this morning , but Receiver Watklns Is still telling what he knows about the notes held by the collapsed Ponca bank and the end is not In sight. There has been enough testimony evoked In regard to that bundle of notes to fill halt a dozen volumes of the Concessional Rec ord and as it consists of an almost constant series of repetitions the attendance at the trial Is limited to those who are directly Interested. A largo part of yesterday was occupied by the cross-examination of W. A. Barclay , the clerk for the receiver. In cross-examination the defense made a vigorous effort to show that the witness was prejudiced against the defendant. The statement was elicited that Bartloy had been employed to prepare evidence tending to con vict Dorsey. Referring to the previous state ment of the witness that one statement made by Dorsey to the comptroller of the treasury Indicated a balance of $7,020 , when the actual balance as shown by the books of the bank was $6,800 , the witness admitted that the discrepancy might have been caused by a credit on one of the notes In the bank. He also admitted that some ot the notes in regard to which he testified were Issued In renewal of other notes previously held by the bank. Ho said that ho had not made , this explanation in his direct examination because the question had not been asked. Minor Matter * In Conrt. Deputy United States Marshal Horano has taken Charke Handler and John Haley to the Dodge county jail to serve sentences Im posed for passing counterfeit money. The attorneys for Brown and McCarty. the counterfeiters who were sentenced Tues day by Judge Munger , are preparing to ap peal the cases and still hope to clear their clients on the technicalities that were raised 'In ' their motion for a new trial. Judge Munger will fix the amount of the super- scdeas bonds. - ' Lancaster county . .bankrupt cases are mul tiplying ait . tremendous rate in United States court. Marshall Field and others ot Chicago have begun proceedings to have McLaughlln Brothers of Lincoln declared bankrupts. They represent that the firm is Indebted to them for goods sold and that In September a transfer was made of portions tions of property with a view to prevent ing them from collecting their accounts. John C. Morrisey and Charles M. Lelghton of Lincoln have asked to be declared bank rupts. BOTH MEN ARE RELEASED Evidence ! Not Sufficient to Hold Sclivrart and Sntton on the Charge of Larceny. When the trial of Isadoro Schwartz and SI Sutton , charged with larceny , was re sumed In police court , the latter gave his testimony in support of the evidence of Young Schwartz and his father , who had sought to establish an alibi. The prosecu tlon called a couple of officers , but their testimony was shut out on account of It being largely hearsay evidence. In his ar gument Deputy County Attorney Thomas laid great stress upon the testimony of the boy who had seen the defendants carrying away the property. The court , however , did not think this strong enough to convict the defendants if they were bound over , BO he discharged them. They were rcarrested immediately on the charge of grand larceny caused by the theft of 300 pounds of coffee valued at $41 from T. J. Mullen. Frank and John Dollbrldge were dis charged on motion of the county attorney , as there waa no evidence to convict them of the charge of maliciously destroying an other's property. Ed Wilson , 14-year-old colored boy , was arraigned on the charge ot stealing twenty chop sacks from the Nebraska Hay com pany. He entered a plea of not guilty and took a continuance. Harry N. Lieberthal filed a complain ! charging Ira B. Everhart with assault and battory. HM Dnraiit Firemen to Dance.
