To the industrious, energetic home-seeker from
the crowded east North Platte and Lincoln county
presents unusnal advantages. Thousands of acres
of vacant government land, in close proximity to
those already being brought under irrigation, may
be obtained by consulting the United States land
office In North Platte. A letter of inquiry to "U.
S. Register, North' Platte, Neb.," relative to the
above will be courteously answered. Irrigated
farming is no longer an experiment, but has
reached the point where it is acknowledged as
pre-eminently the safest in all seasons method
of conducting agricnltural and horticultural oper
ations. The salubrious and life-givine climate of
Lincoln county, where malaria is unknown and
where pulmonary troubles are unthought of, is
another Incentive to the location therein of those
who are anxious to enjoy the good things of this
life as loag as possible. North Platte churches
and schools are above those of eastern communi
ties, the latter being one of the few in Nebraska
permitting the graduate thereof to enter the Stato
Univen4ty without an Intermediate preparatory
training. The people of tho commuuity gladly
welcome the honest, industrious eastern citizen
who is eager to bettor his condition and assisting in
the upbuilding and development of a comparatively
new country.

Washington', Feb. 21. There were
just 1G senators in the chamber when
the 11 o'clock session opened today, and
Mr. Wolcott Rep., Colo.), suggested tho
absence of a quorum. Tho jingling of
senate bells hurriedly assembled tho
senators, and 47 responded to the call
for a quorum, two more than the re
quired number. Mr. Irby (Dem., S. C),
presented the credentials of B. R. Till
man, as senator from South Carolina
for the term beginning March 4 next.
Mr. Turpie (Dem., Ind.), offered a res
olution from the committee on foreign
relations expressing tho high apprecia
tion of the senate as to the distinguished
honors accorded by the Mexican gov
ernment on the occasion of the obsequies
of the United States minister, Mr. Gray,
and directing the secretary of state to
forward copies of the resolution to the

was agreed to. The house joint resolu

Parisian Irrss Blackmailers Convicted and
Paris, Feb. 21. Tho trial has been
concluded of M. Raoul Canivetaand
other lepresentatives of the press of this
city who were charged with blackmail,
and sentences upon those convicted were
pronounced today. M. de Clercq of the
staff of the Nineteenth Century was
condemned to 15 months imprisonment
and to pay a fine of 200 francs. M.
Girard, the manager of the Nineteenth
Century, and M. Heftier, to two years
in prison and 1,000 francs fine each. M.
Camille Dreif us, a former member of
the chamber of deputies, and late politi
cal director of tho Nation, to one year
in prison and 500 francs fine, and M.
Edoaard Portalis, formerly direc
tor of the Nineteenth Century,
who fled to Antwerp when the
blackmailing became known, to
five years' imprisonment and 3,000
francs fine Tho sentence of M. Por
talis was by default. The arrest and
conviction of these men grew out of tho
unearthing of a gigantic scheme of levy
ing blackmail upon the managers of all
the casinos and gambling clubs of
France. It is also understood that real
ly important financial institutions and
other sound corporations long submitted
to blackmailing operations in .order lo
prevent the publication of articles of an
unfavorable character. Tho stopping of
the publication of social- scandals is also
said to have been a fruitful sourco of in

Pooling:. Bankruptcy and Statehood Bill.
Washington, Feb. 21. Now that
there is no further prospect of action on
tho financial question in this senate,
there has baen a renewed interest iu
other general bills before the senate, in
cluding tho pooling, bankruptcy and
New Mexico aud Arizona admission
bills, but the especial champions of each
of these measures realizo that there is
but little hope of favorable consideration
of any of them, aud, only in the case of
tho territorial bills, of getting any of
them up for consideration. In tho mat
ter of these bills. Senator Faulkner, who,
as chairman of the committee on terri
tories, has charge of them, says he
expects to get a day for their considera
tion, but he does not believe the report
will allow them to pass and that if they
choose they can easily prevent this re
sult at the present late day of tho ses
sion. Senator George frankly admits that
ho seas no prospect of again getting up
the bankruptcy bill. The friends of the
pooling bill are more persistent than the
advocates of tho other bills mentioned,
but they find obstacles iu their way at
every turn.
Will Oppoto Treasury Certificates.
Washing! on, Feb. 21. The silver
men havo determined to fight the prop
osition for certificates of indebtedness in
tho sundry civil bill, and will carry
their opposition to such lengths a3 will
prevent tho bill becoming a law if it- is
retained. A conference of silver sena
tors upon this subject last evening de
veloped great opposition to the certifi
cate proposition, and the course of talk
ing the bill to death iu case the loan
amendment was retained.
Gentry Still Alive.
Philadelphia. Feb. 21. James B.
Gentry, the murderer of Actress Madgo
Yorko, is still alive, and tho chances are
that he will recover, although it may bo
several weeks before ho is well enongh
to bo removed from tho hospital. Ho
has not gone through any of his insane
antics since ho made his statement yes
terday to Magistrate Milligau, and what-
ittle conversation he has hold since that
time indicates that his mind is perfectly
rational. The remains of Miss Yorke
were shipped to Now York today.
Services will be held at the Little
Church Around the Corner and inter
ment will be made at Woodlawn cemetery.
Faro Bank Rnhbed by a Masked Man.
Tucson, Ari., Fob. 21. Congress hall,
ono of tho old-time establishments, was
entered at midnight by a masked man,
who held up the faro table. The game
was in progress, when the dealer, George
Huston, saw a fellow enter by a sido
door with a mask covering his face.
Huston thought some practical joker
was trying to havo a littlo fun and
when the robber covered him, Huston
pushed the gun aside. Tho robber did
not utter a word, but shoved tho gun up
to Huston's breast and with his free hand
took about $340 in gold. Those playing
at tho game did not move while the rob
bery was being committed.
Minneapolis, Feb. 21. County At
torney Nye resumed his cross-examination
of W. W. Hayward, father of the
young man accused of murdering Cath
erine Ging. He was quite unable to
shake the old gentleman's story in any
essential particular, although ho demon
strated that the witness' memory as to
dates and happenings at about the time
of tJie occurrences ho described was not
of the best. It is a remarkable fact that
thus far in the case, although both Nye
and Erwin are adept questioners, neither
has been able to shake the testimony of
any of the witnesses on cross -examination.
Mr. Nye tried to establish by the
senior Hayward that on Dec. 6, three
days after the murder, "Elder" Stewart
had told him the story that Adryhad
told Stewart three days before the mur

years old. He was born in the Iouiau

lion, which seenred the independence of
that country under Marco Bozzarls. He
took part in the famous battle of Au
gust, 1823, wlk-ii by a night attack the
Greek army of 1.200 destroyed tho Turk
ish force of over -1,000. Victorato al-
1 ways maintained that the accented his
tories of that event wero incorrect and
that Bozzaris fell at tho hands of his
own men.
SuflerinK In Western Kansas.
St. Joseph, Feb. 21. B. W. Hyatt of
Montgomery county, Kansas, is in this
city soliciting aid for sufferers in that
section and tells a pitiuble talo of the
sufferings of the people of western Kan
sas. Mr. Hyatt says the people of Mont
gomery and neighboring counties are
eating horseflesh, being unable to gut
other food. Their cows are being
trained to draw plows, etc., and by this
means the farmers hope to be able to put
in a crop this spring.
Will Follow Germany's Action.
Paris, Feb. 21. A deputation from
the sugar growing districts of France
and tho French colonies waited on
Premier Iiibot and demanded that m
order to avert the dangers to which the
French sugar iudnstry is exposed by a
fall in prices, a snr tax b8 placed on for
eign sugars imported into France. In
reply M. Ribot said that the council of
state had decided that if the German
reichstag should vote to pay bounties on
sugar exported from Germany, steps
would immediately be taken by the gov
ernment Jto couuterast the effect of suck
bounties on the French markets.
Gunpowder Kxplonion at Fort Scott.
Fort Scott, Kan., Feb. 21. While
proparing to retire, Frank Pfeffer, agod

an open drawer in which some three
pounds of gunpowder was placed. Tho
explosion following wrecked the house,
i which was a large one, forcing tho sides
out from under the roof and probably
fatally burning young Pfeffer. A
brother in bed iu .tho same room was
blown up against a fall and badly hurt.

Now," said Erwin, "Mr. Blixt has
testified against you and Mr. Adry Hay
ward has testified against you. Have
they testified correctly?"
"They havo not," responded the wit
ness, setting his teeth.
'Has the testimony of Adry Hay
ward, given here on the stand, been true
or false?"
Almost wholly false."
'Xow," said Mr. Erwin, "I will ask
you about all your relations with Miss
Ging. State them fully to the jury."
"Well," said Harry, in a reminiscent
mood, "I was introduced to Miss Ging
I think in January, 1894, by Mr Speaker,
at the boarding house. I met her at
first perhaps a3 often as once a week.
After awhile I met hor as oftou as twice
a week. Then you might say we began
to be getting fairly well acquainted.
Things went on in that way during
April. We kept getting better and bet
ter acquainted all the time; more and
more intimate. From July and August
on through to December we were what
yon might call lovers, I suppose."
"Now, I'll ask you if at any time
while you were lovers there were any
improper relations existiuy between you
of any sort."
"No sir," was the answer given with
more feeling than had yet been shown
in any of tho witness' answers. "She
was a true and noble girl to the best of
my belief both toward me and toward
everybody else."
"Now, did you go riding with her?

"Now, I'll ask you about yourself at
this point and about youc habit of gam
bling and card playing. Explain your
self fully; stato everything."
Well, I suppose it's all ko. I've
gambled, and gambled a pllo on roulette
and faro. I've gambled high, and lots
of it. T acknowledge I tried to keep it
from the public, but I did not try to dis
guise it from any yonng lady or young
man who knew me intimatoly.'
"Now, at what points did you gamble:"
"Almost every city in the United
States; that is, every large city and
many of the small cities. I've gambled
in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Seattle, Alas
ka, San Francisco, San Diego, Los An
geles, Encinito, Tex.; Colorado Springs,
Manitou, Gleuwood Springs, Denver,
Pueblo, Cheyenne, New Orleans, Oma
ha, Kansas City, Chicago "
"There," said Erwin, "I guesa you've
named enough. "Did Catherine Ging
ever take part in your gambling?"
"Yes sir. She with another young
lady, another gentleman and myself,
went into a restaurant and ordered a
meal. It was an elaborate meal and it
took some time to prepare it. It was
right near a gambling house. We knew
the young ladies real well, so we went
out for awhile. I don't exactly remem
ber whether Miss Ging was there that
night or not, and if sho was there 1
ilon't remember whether sho went in or
not, but one of the young ladies did aud
we did. I don't think sho put in any
thing. If she was there she knew of it
Harry then described tho various win
nings and losings he h?d made for Miss
Ging. While in Chicago he had lost
$1,530. He explained the telegram ho
had sent from Chicago at length, and

a recess was taken for dinner.
