grazing, to which the Dietrich bill was r?
ferred, by having introduced a bill do
noiincinc Senator Dietrich's measure, fa'
voring the opening of this land for homo-
stead purposed and increasing oach home
steader's holding from 100 to 640 acres,
recommending the adoption of President
Roosevelt's plan to have congress appoint
a commission of exports to investigate and
report on the conditions of leasing and
The house simply and plainly rejected
the Dietrich bill by adopting a resolution
to this effect by Jones of Otoe, which also
provided for the endorsement of President
Roosevelt's plan as recommended by Gov
A. S. Reed of Alliance, director of the
Nebraska Stock Growers' association and
one of the committee who went to Wash
ington to work against the Deitrich bill,
was here today and took special delight in
the action of the legislature. Mr. Reed
gave an outline of the three grazing land
bills proposed, the Lacy bill, by Congress
man Lacey of Iowa, the Dcitrich bill and
the stock growers' bill. The three harmo
nized in this 6nc respect, that the rental
proceeds shall be apportioned one-fourth
to the state, one-fourth to the county and
one-half to the irrigation fund. The
Lacey and stockmen's bills are substantial
ly identical and either is satisfactory to tho
Nebraska stock raisers. The essential
point of difference between these bills and
that of Senator Deilrich is that tho former
fixed a definite rental price, while the lat
ter left this and other vital matters to the
secretary of the interior, This was tho
obnoxious feature of the Dcitrich bill.
Tho stockmen's bill provided for renting
not more than 20,000 acres of grazing
land to any one person and from i to 4
cents per acre, and the Lacey bill not
more than twenty sections nnd from 1 to
"I think if the stockmen's bill were
passed it would net to the irrigation fund
annually Sijs.ooo, as there are 9,000,000
acres of this land. If thrown open to
homestead the land would not produce as
great irrigation revenue as that would
bring in but Sio for each entry," said Mr.
"Secretary Hitchcock told us ho thought
this Nebraska land ought to be as valuable
as the Oklahoma land which rented for 25
cents an acre. But, we explained to him
his mistake that Oklahoma land is good
for farming, while ours is nothing but
grazing land. 1 have petitons against the
Deitrich bill signed by 200 or 300 big and
little cattle growers of the state. I want
to add that in Washington we secured the
promises of Senators Millard aud Deitrich
and Representatives Stark, Burkett and
Shallenberger to support the Lacey bill,
but when the two senators fouud the bill
did not meet Secretary Hitchcock's appro
val they refused to keep their promise.
But the entiie matter is dead so far as
this congress is concerned."

The campaign of 1904 is not far off and
the campaign of 1903, although not of a
national character, is of great importance
since it will forecast prevailing conditions
and be a public weathervane of the great
contest of 1904.
All those doing oditorial work in Ne
braska who revere the immortal names of
JeifersoB and Jackson and who love the
grand priacipJo of democracy as pro

Bryan, are earnestly requested to meet

made other arrangements with Mrs. Cholf
than the compromise he told Mr. Mitchell
or made different arrangements with her
later. Mrs. Chelf stayed with Mrs. Pfleger
while in town. Friday afternoon a trunk
was sent down to her and late that evening
Chelf called there to see her. She went
out nnd talked with him a few minutes
and that night Chelf took his departure
from Alliance. The following night Mrs.
Chulf left for her sister's home in Denver.
She took with her the trunk that had been
sent to Pllegor's and it is presumed that it
was sent by Chelf and contained things
belonging to him.
From Mr. Harold it is learned that Clielf
got posession of all the money belonging to
the girl he had brought here, leaving her
penniless and among strangers and, when
the awful truth was made known to her,
stricken with grief and heart broken.
Chelf told her he would have to go down
town to see a traveling man that night and
later sent her word by C. V. Mollring that
he had been called to Denver so that she
did not hear what had transpired until
Saturday. Word of his daughters terrible
trouble was telegraphed Mr. Harold, who
arrived here Tuesday morning and took
what steps might be possible in tracing
Chelf, pack up his daughter's goods and
take her home, leaving for Waupella on
yesteruay mornings train, liie lady is
about twenty-two years of age, a very re1
fined and pleasant young woman who had
won the friendship and cordial liking of
the few she had met during her short stay
in Alliance. Mrs. Chelf is also about
twenty-two years old. During her several
years' residence in this city she has always
been considered a good, respectable girl
and has many warm friends here, who
consider her almost as deeply wronged a
victim of Chelf's as Miss Harold.
It is not a case where caution on the
part of her relatives or herself could have
prevented any of the misery thathas be
fallen Miss Harold, as Chelf comes of a
highly respectedjfamily, the father being
W. W Chelf of Lincoln, 111., and hts
parents feel terribly their son's disgraceful
conduct, his mother being prostrated with
grief over the affair. He grew up in
Logan county, adjoiniug the county in
which the Harolds live. While not well
acquainted with him personally, the girl's
father says he knew he had always borne
a good reputation there and nothing in his
conduct here was such that it could have
caused the parents any uneasiness in en
trusting their daughter's welfare into his
keeping. Mr. Harold states that he will
institute proceedings against him imme
diately upon his arrival home nnd that
every effort shall be made to bring him to
justice. He and his daughter were at the
home of the Linquest's on the night of
their departure and had a conference with
Sheriff Reed. It had been heard that J.
F, Fleming, the clothier on south Box
Butte avenue, when in Denver Tuesday
met Chelf there and accordingly Mr.
Fleming was called. He corroborated the
story saying that he saw him on Seven
teenth street, that Chelf evidently saw him
and tried to pass without recognizing him
but that he grasped him by the hand and
stopped him to talk with him.V.that he
wanted to see if Chelf appeared sane.
Ho further stated that he did that Chelf
told him that he had been called there on
a little business that would detain him a
day or two when he would return to Alli
ance. It is to be hoped that they may
succeed in apprehending him and that his
atrocious conduct may meet the severest
punishment the law provides.

but the Turks have no Idea of tjc
choice of cuts nnd Hlmply nak for so
many okas, caring nothing o Unit they
got meaty pieces with few bone.
Corned beef, ronat beer, fitenk these
nro unknown. Mutton, bojf, n little
vonl, fowlH and game are union. Fork
Is "tho unutterable Hush."
Breakfast with the Turk of all
classes consists of a cup of coffee and
bread. A piece of cheese rllrd Into the
fnt pancake' Is eaten by the laborer?.
This Is sometimes exchanged for cakes
that nro much like pretzels, only larger
and not so hard. In the fruit season
different kinds of fuilt are added.
Black bread made of unboiled rye Hour
Is sold everywhere and when fresh is
delicious. With a few grupefe, a piece
of the native cheese and 11 cup of coffee
the richest mini is satisfied.
With all fish, lobsters and many
meats a sort of salad dressing Is served
made of garlic, oil, breadcrumbs and
vinegar, all bruised to a cream, with
caviare, or cucumber. Mussels are much
larger than In this country. They are
washed, steamed until they open, then
filled with ilce. chopped onion and pep
per and butter, packed closely lu a ves
sel aud baked an hctn-.
Turks make few soups, as they prefer
solid food, but sardines, anchovies nnd
salted olives or pistachio nuts are eaten
before meals as appetizers. Of vegeta
bles, which enter largely Into their
diet, the favorite la the tomato, and
scarcely any dish is considered com
plete without It, though they never cat
this vegetable raw. To preserve toma
toes for winter use they boll them un
til the skins are loose, then pass them
through colanders, after which they
throw salt Into the pulp. This causes It
to settle, and the water Is poured off
while the residue Is put Into thin bngs
and hung in the shade. The next day
It Ik spread on Hat surfaces to dry.
Later It is cut, into squares and laid
lu covered jars. This process retains
the taste and ipialitles of the tomato
better than canning, and a little water
makes the pulp moist again.
Potatoes, a taste for which Is an ac
quired one with the Turk, nro first
boiled, mashed with eggs and a little;
Hour, then made Into cakes and fried.
Beans and lima beans are boiled with
tomatoes and butter and sometimes on
ions. Squash Is sliced and fried or
HtulTcd with mincemeat, onions and
boiled lice, and then baked. Large cu
cumbers lire also stuffed with minced
meats and baked or are eaten raw with
salt. One good stew is made of mut
ton and green peas. Another has all
sortii of vegetables, like an Irish stew.
Eggplant Is cooked lu many ways,
some of them pnlatable and good. One
recipe Is called imamballde, which
means that the Iimiin for whom the
dish first was made fainted with de
light nt Its excellence. To make It, cut
silts lu the sides of the eggplant and In
sert a forcemeat of onion and minced
chicken In the cavities. Tie strips of
cloth around and fry thoroughly In boil
ing fat. Another way Is to substitute
egcnlant for nolato In a stew. Toma
toes should also be added.
Moussaka, another nnd better form,
calls for one large eggplant, sliced rath
er thick, without peeling. Have a
quart of tomatoes freshly peeled or
canned and one pound of minced beef.
Fry the beef until it separates, set
aside wlille tho eggplant Is being fried,
then put alternate layers of meat, egg
plant and tomatoes In a deep dish;
seasou and bake in a slow ovon one
Another delicious dish results from
placing sliced onions, tomatoes and
ship's bread or soda biscuit in layers,
with a generous piece of butter, in a
covered dish. Bake slowly four hours.
Pllaf, tho natloual dish of Turkey. Is
served invariably at every dinner. Klco
always forms tho foundation, and the
mest popular variety Is that where
nothing but butter, tomatoes and rice
is used. Take three-quarters of a
pound of Carolina or Egyptian rice,
wnsh until perfectly clean and whllo
still wet place lu a pan with one-quarter
of a pound of butter. Stir over the
flro until the rice has absorbed the but
ter and become a light golden color.
Add the rico to three pints of strained
tomato Juice, boll tho whole up once,
then draw aside to cook, without stir
ring, for twenty-five minutes. When
done, melt another quarter of a pound
of butter, and when the pllaf Is dished
up pour It over tho top. Each kernel
should bo separate. The color will bo
a rieh light brown.
Yalnnje-dolnm Is a popular dish with
foreigners as well as Turks. Scald
some Prosit green grape leaves. Take
a half pound of rice and fry in butter
us for pllaf. Mince some onion and
parsley very fine and add them to the
rico with salt and pepper. Stuff oach
leaf with the mixture, fastening the
little bundles with cloves. Lay thum

In lS3y foiiimodoro Elliott ordered a
figure of General .lacksou to be carved
to take the place of a billet head which
the United Statis frigate Constitution
had carried through the war of 1S12.
It was placid on the bow of the frigate
in .Tune, lSIil. when she left the dry
dock In ChnrlcHtown navy yard. The
excitement among the political enemies
of Jackson in Boston was intense. A
meeting was called in Fnneuil hull
which, however, did not take place
and anonymous letter writers threaten
ed the life of the commodore unless tho
statue was removed. On the night of
the 2d of July, 1S.'H. in the midst of a
terrific thunderstorm, Samuel P. Dew
ey, a young man of twenty-eight, rowed
out to tho vessel and managed to saw
off the head of the statue and carry It
away. Theiiead was replaced a month
later in New York, and the figure re
mained there until 1871. It now occu
