R. Fair. Many Donated Articles Were Voted and Raffled. A Big Sum Will be Added to the Relief Fund. THE END.

The G. A. R. relief fair wound up in grand style at half past one this morning with many still unwilling to leave. Last night was in several respects the most joyous one of the season.

The fnn was fast and furious frum beginning to end. Dancing continued until midnight, when raffling and voting commenced. The few articles unsold at the booths were auctioned off by Capt. FANCY GOODS. At the fancy goods booth Mrs.

F. L. Robinson, of the Carey block art rooms, displayed the finest line of holiday novelties ever shown in the city and made many good sales. The lot included the new kid covered card receivers, the prettiest jewel cases imaginable and oodles of other lovely articles that man can admire, but which woman only can appreciate. EATEN OUT.

Mrs. Bolster, manager of the dining ball, underestimated the capacity of Cheyenne dancers last evening, for at one time all supplies were exhausted. Some tall rustling was done with the result that sufficient fare for all was secured. While on the supper question it is but justice to say that the splendid coffee served throughout the fair was brewed by Mrs. P.

Lynott. POPULAR PASTOR. There was a spirited contest in voting an elegant sofa cushion donated by Mrs. N. J.O'Brien, to the most popular pastor of the city.

He made an antemortem statement yesterday to Prosecuting Attorney Stoll and Sheriff Martin in the presence of Walter Lareh. His story of the quarrel and the infliction of the fatal wound upon himself is very indefinite and will aid the prosecution very little in bringing the assailant to justice. His name is Clanan and not Callahan, as it has been given. He came from Omaha several months ago to work on the Union Pacific and was a member of a steel gang employed near Egbert just prior to the cutting. He came to this city on a Saturday evening and made his beadquarters at Klett's place.

He was in and out of the saloon several times Sunday. Clanan only remembers that a brawl started, that he was struck and fell near a pool table. He did not know that he was stabbed and is unable to tell who struck the fatal blow. Stocks and Sautboff, men accused of the stabbing are still held at the county jail. Sheriff Martin and Attorney Stoll are giving considerable time to the case and hope to secure the punishment of the right man.

New Schedule Figures. The new time card figures for the Wyoming division have been received here. The accompanying tabular statement shows the charges in arrival at this place: New time Old time here. here. No.

1, westbound. ...2:00 pm 1:55 pm No. 2, eastbound 950 am 10:00 am No. 3, westbound 8:35 am 1:55 am No. 4, eastbound 2:25 am 3:05 am Nos.

3 and 4 will be the fast mailtrains. They will take business for district terminals only" not stopping at intermediate stations except for water or fuel. There will be Denver connections here with Nos. 1 and 2, the southbound train leaving at 10:20 a. and the northbound arriving at 1:50 p.

m. This new schedule, except the Denver portion will be highly satisfactory to Cheyenne travelers and the patrons of the express company. There should be another Denver train and doubtless will be after a time. Nos. 3 and 4 will fairly fly across Wyoming and 1 and 2 will by no means be slow.

THE SHORT LINE. A Prospective Wyoming Road in a Big Combine. According to a Sioux City dispatch a new deal in railway circles that promises to be of much importance to transcontinental traffic, has been made public by Donald McLean, general manager of the Pacific Short Line, now under construction from that city across Nebraska and Wyoming to Ogden, Utah. It is an alliance between the Pennsylvania Central, Chicago. Milwaukee St.

Paul, Pacific Short Line, and Central Pacific for a line from New York to San Francisco. The Pennsylvania Line, from New York to Chicago, is sixty-seven miles shorter than any other route; from Chicago to Sioux City the St, Paul line is only five miles longer than the Illinois Central, while from Sioux City to Ogden the Short Line will be 169 miles shorter than the Union Pacific. In addition to this the surveys of the line shows a maximum grade of sixty-two feet to the mile over the mountains, while that of tho Union Pacific is 126 feet. Work has been ac tively resumed on the line, and next season it will be pushed to completion as rapidly as possible. This alliance is the shortest line between the oceans by 236 miles, with a great advantage in speed and capacity to pull heavy loads.

The bond of Frank A. Dana, whose nomination by Mayor Riner, to be City Clerk successor was confirmed several months ago, was last evening sent to the finance committee of the council for the first time.

The committee will give Mr. Dana an opportunity to secure a substiute tor the shaky freeholder.

A SUBWAY. The matter of the Snyder street underground crossing was brought to the attention of the city council last evening by Mayor Riner. The shop contract stipulates that the city shall provide this subway before Jan. 1, 1890. It will be an important crossing, as many ranchmen enter the city from that direction.

The subject was referred to the building committee with authority to act and plans will soon be prepared and sent to Omaha for approval. About will be required to prepare this undergrade crossing. AUCTIONEERS. It was Mayor Riner who suggested an amendatory ordinance making license $75 a year instead of that sum for a quarter. He said the protection to merchants foom outsiders with small job lots would be the same and that with the time extended a local auctioneer could be supported.
