BANCROFT, Neb., Sept 22. Peter
Olsen, who shot Mary Peterson In
Omaha on the night of September 8,
was shot and almost Instantly killed
here yesterday. He came to town lasi!
evening and registered at tho Park
hotel as W. Johnson, having supper,
bed and breakfast, paying for the came
In tho morning. He was around town
all evening and got shaved at the bar
ber shop, 'but was not recognized bji
anyone. Yesterday morning Led1
Fletcher came to town, and although
he only saw Olsen onoo about si
months ago, he recognized him, bui
was not certain enough to cause hid
arrest. He left a man to watch him
and hurried out in the country for Mi
P. Johnson, an uncle of the murdered
girl, and with whom Olsen had visited
Olsen also recognized Mr. Fletcher
and seemed to know they were after
him and left town. As. Mr. Johnson
was coming in he saw Olsen going up
the railroad and recognized him by
his walk. He at once notified Con
stable J. O. Copplo, who organized a
posse and started In pursuit, overtak
ing him about three miles from townj
Constable Copple and John Farley,
armed with rifles, were the first to be.
on tho Bcene, and when about fifty"
yards from Olsen they dismounted, and
taking refuge back of a culvert ordered
him to surrender. Ho reached for his
revolver and the second command was
given, when tho revolver flourished.
The order was given to shoot; three
Tlflo shots were fired, only one taking
effect, entering about three inches
above the navel and passing entirely
through tho body. Upon examination
It was found that the revolver contain
ed only one shell and that had been
snapped three times. There were no
papers on his person. The revolver
and $15.65 In money was all that was
found. He was loaded Into a buggy
and brought to town, where a closer
examination wis held.
The clothes he wore, the scars on
his neck and the scar qn his side
where he was operated on for appendi
citis tallied exactly with the descrip
tion sent out by tho Omaha police.
Coroner Sammons, Sheriff Kloke
and County Attorney Hunter came
over from "West Point and upon exam
ination said that there was no ques
tion but that he was the right man.

London Papers Predict that the Trusts

Roosevelt has undertaken a task bo
colossal that the remedy will bo more
dangerous than the disease and that
the trusts have nothing to fear for a
long time to come.
Referring to the same subject the

FOOD IS THE ONLY PROBLEM,
When that Is 8olved No Trouble to
Reach the North Pole.
NEW YORK, Sept 20. Dr. Fred
crick A. Cook of Brooklyn, who was
with Lieutenant Peary on one of his
Arctic trips and with the Delglca
expedition to tho south polo as chief
surgeon, expresses tno opinion mat
Peary's latest ondewor was by no
means a failure, and that tho explorer
has added "material to the annals of
science which will bo found Invalu
able, In fact moro valuable than tho
actual discovery of tho polo Itself."
"All this talk about the torrlblo
dangers to be met before reaching tho
polo is sheer rot," continued Dr.
Cook, "A man, all things taken Into
account Is just as safe on tho Arctic
Ice fields as ho is In Now York. Thero
not so severe as tho cut of tho sallno
giouB diseases, no miasmatic swamps,
no sewer gas, no decaying vegetables,
no rotting rags. Everything Is on ico.
Thero is no danger In traversing tho
ice fields, nor from the cold, which is
not sosevcre as the cut of the saline
blasts on the Atlantic seacoasts.
"It Is the food question," ho added,
"that closes up tho way to tho polo."
When this problem Is solved reach
ing tho pole will, In his opinion, bo
quite a simple undertaking.

Ten Feet High at Doors.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala,, Sept 20. Sov-enty-olght
pooplo known to bo dead
and eighty Injured, somo perhaps fa
tally, Is tho result of a panic which oc
curred in Shlloh negro Baptist ohurch
horo last night during tho ovenlng ses
sion of tho national Baptist conven
tlon. Fifteen hundred dolcgatcs were
crowded into tho church, which had
only a seating capacity of 400, when
tho audtenco was thrown Into a stam
pede by a conflict between two of tho
delegates in tho rear of tho church.
Tho cries of "fight" tho audlenco mis
took for an alarm of "fire," and In tho
wild rush sovonty-olght persons wore
crushed to death and eighty moro re
ceived Injuries some of which may
provo fatal. Tho list of dead and In
jured included only negroes in attend
ance. In tho case of tho visiting dele
gates the Identification has been diffi
cult Tho catastrophe occurred at 9
o'clock, just as Booker T. Washington
had concluded his address to the na
tional convention of Baptists, and for
three hours tho scenes around the
church were indescribable. Dead
bodies were strewn In every direction
and the ambulance service of tho city
was utterly incapacitated to mpve
them until after 10 o'clock. Dozens of
dead bodies were arranged In rows on
the grounds outside of the house of
worship, awaiting removal to tho va
rious undertaking establishments,
while moro than a score were laid out
on tho benches inside.
Tho church is tho largest house ot
worship for negroes In Birmingham,
and tho pastor says there wero at
least 2,000 persons in the house when
tho stampedo began. Instructions had
been Issued to allow no more to en
ter, but tho negroes forced their way
Inside and wero standing In every
aisle. Even tho entrance to tho church
was literally packed.
Just as Booker T. Washington con
cluded bis address, Judge BUlou, a
negro lawyer from Baltimore, engaged
in an altercation with tho choir lead
er concerning an unoccupied seat and
It is said a blow was struck. Someone
In tho audlenco cried "They're fight
ing." Mistaking tho word "fighting"
for "fire," the congregation arose en
masse and started for the door. Ono
of the ministers quickly mounted tho
rostrum and admonished tho people
to keep quiet He repeated the word
"quiet" several tlmeB and motioned
hiB hearers to be seated. Again the
excited people mistook tho word
"quiet" for "fire" nnd renewed their
efforts to get out Men and women
crawled over one another to get to
the door. Tho ministers tried again

LINCOLN, Neb., Spt 22rIn a
slxty-pago opinion the supremo court
denies tho application for a mandam
us naked by tho Omaha Bee Building
company against tho state board of

as tho board Is legally constituted a

erty It is clothed with quasi judicial
powers, and when it has onco acted
on sufficient information and express
ed an honest judgment as to valua
tion its judgmont cannot bo controlled
by tho writ of mandamus, which Is a
writ to compel action and not to cor
The court holds that In tho case at
bar under tho ovidenco tho Inference
Is not warrantable that tho respond
ents acted with Impropor motives nnd
fraudulently In making tho assess

ful intention ot discriminating In fa
vor of tho railroad and telegraph com
panies whoso property was assessed.
An assessment may be treated as
fraudulent when well known rules of

llablo and pertinent information is
declined and. an arbitrary assessment

Tho court holds, however, that tho
board of equalization must include
and assess tho valuo of franchises
with tho tangible property, but that
whoro It assesses tho property of a
railroad as a unit and considers tho
purposes for which It Is used, the fact
that It Is earning an incomo and

tho IntanglbSo property alsd and bo

that tho earnings is ovldonce of a
