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 agricultural and horticultural oper
ations. The salubrious and life-giving 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 long as possible. North Platte churches

The editor of The Tribune has

that entitles him to be a candidate

supposed the motive of the lynching
was to prevent the woman from giving
testimony against the rustlers, as she
had been summoned as a witness against
a gang of thieves in the county. She
had borne a good reputation. It was
evident that she had fought a hard fight
for her life and her honor, as the bed
ding and clothing were torn and scat
tered arocad the room.
No warrants have yet been made, but
a meeting of the best citizens of the
neighborhood was held vesterday, and
it was decided prompt measures should
be taken, and it is expected that an
other and possibly several hangings will
take place before long.
Several Under Suspicion.
Several persons are under suspicion,
and these parties will be taken and com
pelled to confess.
The body of Mrs. Holton was interred
at Oak dale cemetery at Doty, this coun
ty, yesterday.
Tho latest report comes that a man
named Hunt is implicated in some way
with the lynchers, and it is thought he
can be forced to a confession. A num
ber of the alleged rustlers were recently
arrested and taken to Springview, where
they broke jail and escaped to the reser
vation, where they were afterward re
captured and convicted.

Butte, Neb., March 18. Attorney
General Churchill in an interview with
W. F. Wills, comnty attorney, who has
just returned from Lincoln, states, that
in case the legislature had succeeded in
passing the "Barrett Scott bill," he
would not ask for a change of venue.
Wills is authority for the statement
that the attorney general had arrived
at the conclusion that when the case
was called he would move to flfamiaa
ihe action, and then institute new pro
ceedings in Boyd county. The theory
of the prosecution is that since the body
was found on the Boyd county side of
the river the supposition is that the
crime was committed in Boyd county,
and if the defense wants a trial in Holt
county they will have to show that the
murder was actually committed in that
county. The case, if brought to this
county, will work a great hardship to its
citizens, as the expenses of the trial will
have to be borne by this county, which
it is just now unable to do.

Des Monres, March 18. A carpenter
named E. T. Clark attempted to kill bis
wife and himself at their home at First
and School streets. While the woman
and her 10-year-old son were at supper
the man, who is her second husband,
came in and said he had come to bid
hergoodby for the last time. With
this he drew a razor and began slashing
at her throat, cutting four deep gashes
in her neck and face. She now lies in
a critical condition and her recovery is
doubtful. Clark then disappeared and
went to a boarding house at Seventh
and Mulberry streets, where he ap
peared before the landlady with a great
gash in his throat and told what he had
done, saying he was going to finish the
job.- He returned to the street and
roamed about, leaving a trail of blood,
and was arrested and lodged in jail. He
is not dangerously hurt. Drunkenness
and domestic disorder are given as the
causes of the tragedy.

New York. March 18. A special
from Tampa, Fla., says: The latest report
is that the Spanish warship Arcedo fired
into and sank an American steamer off
Puerto del Padre. It is reported that a
crew numbering 16 persons perished
with it. It is not known whether the
schooner had arms or carried au expedi
tion for Cubans. It was reported in
Havana that the schooner had sailed
from Key West. Inquiries, however,
fail to show that any boat is missing or
unreported, except those engaged in le
gitimate trade. Many sailed recentlv
for West Indian ports with
Puerto del Padre is a harbor on the
northeast coast of Cuba. It has a lone
and narrow entrance and affords excel
lent anchorage. It is not far from the
placo where the Spanish gunboat fired
on the Allianca. The Spanish cruiser
Infanta Isabella, Captain Daenas, has
sailed for Havana. It is believed sho
has withdrawn on accouut of tho Alli
anca affair.
Inclined to Discredit It.
Washington, March 18.The state
department has had no information
from official sources touching the report
that the Spanish cruiser Arcedo fired on
and sank a small American schooner off
the Cuban coast, and the report finds
little credence here. The naval regis
ter shows that the Arcedo is a small
schooner-rigged iron gunboat built in
Spain in 1883, and of about 0 knots
speed. It is not known whether or not
she is in Cuban waters. Other sources
of information than the state depart
ment are likewise without any informa
tion on the matter, and are inclined to
discredit it.
All Propositions Rejected by Insurgents
Key West, Fla., March 18. The
chief topic among the passengers by the
steamer which just arrived from Ha
vana was the unsatisfactory outcome of
the interview had by the commissioners
sent by the government to treat with
the rebel leaders in arms in the eastern
provinces. What inducements were of
fered by the commission for the cessa
tion of hostilities or what guarantees
were promised are not known, but all
propositions were rejected by the insur
gents. They said they held the situa
tion and were in a position to dictate
their own terms. The press editorially
deprecates the result of the conference,.
and asserts that it has done more harm
than good.
IT is said the county commis- ture of oleomargarine by coloring offenders have not been caught,

Denied by Mrs. Chamberlain. '
Watertown, S. D., March 18. Mrs.
a. w. unamDeriam, wno lives nine
miles southwest of here, denies any
knowledge of the blackmailing letters
sent to the Fair heirs in San Francisco,
demanding $15,000 for the return of the
stolen will. Mrs. Chamberlain has fre
quently reported that sho has fallen heir
to a fortune. She now claims that the
blackmailing letters were written by a
former husband, who is anxious to get
sible. The debt of the city is not
large as compared to many other
towns of the same size, yet it is
largrer than it should be, and should
be reduced as rapidly as possible.
In this connection The Tribune
believes that D. W. Baker, who is
a candidate for mayor, will make a
conservative official, and will hold
down the council should that body
show a disposition to expend more
money than the financial condition
of the city warrants.
The Trihone believes every man
should receive a fair compensation
or his labor and does not favor so
radical a cut on the salaries of the
city officials as advocated by some.
It does believe, however, that the
business of the city could be trans
acted in a proper manner if the
council met but once a month, and
it further believes that a compens
ation of $5.00 per meeting for the
mayor and 52.50 for each council
man would not be out of the way.
