There is a pretty well founded
rumor in circulation to the effect
that Judge Neville will not have
smooth sailing in the pop conven
tion which will nominate a district
judge this fall. The obstacles
which are being placed in the
Judge's path are such that it will
require him to use considerable of
headwork to overcome them.
The little squib which appeared
in these columns last week has
brought out the information that
certain leaders of the populist party
are working the wires so as to
knock Newell Burritt out of a re

central committee and has worked
faithfully for his party, the scheme
to shelve him appears very ungen

treasurership and intended making
fight for the nomination, but
Buchanan's friends promised him

The impression that many have
that the anti-cigarette bill passed
by the last last legislature makes
it unlawful for any one to sell or
give away cigarettes or material
for their composition, is entirely
wrong. Tne original bill was in
that form, but it was amended,
after having been twice stolen, and
as it now stands on the statue book
it merely prohibits the sale or . giv
ing' of cigarettes to persons under
twenty-one years. It goes into effect
August 1. The bill will have but
itle effect in doing away with the
death-inviting habit of cigarette

Ericson, Neb., April 18. -The mam
moth dam at this place closed the waters
of the Cedar Mond y. For three days
and two nights a small army of men
with teams have had their hands full in
stopping the waters of the stream and
now the Cedar valley is adorned by one
of the finest lakes in the state, covering
some 200 acres. The entire neighbor
hood seemed to gather to assist in the
exciting scenes. Thousands of fish were
left below the dam without sufficient
water, and are being caught bv cart
loads. Ducks and geese are already
gathering on the lake and the crack of
the sportsman's rifle is heard. The
Cedar valley under irrigation, with its
Cedar lake, promises to be one of the
most fruitful, and its people are already
forgetting to talk of drouth.
Jackaem Willing to Go to Washington.
XiASHVUiLE. Tenn., April la. In an
interview published in The American,
Associate Justice Howell E. Jackson of
the supreme court of the United States
says: "I wrote a few days since to the
chief justice simply expressing my will
ingness to go to Washington and make
a full bench in case the court should de
sire a rehearing of the income tax case
at this term of the court. I have heard
nothing since then. The court usually
adjourns between the 15th and 20th of
May, and if a rehearing is ordered, say
early in May, I shall go and make a full
bench." Judge Jackson is improving
and growing stronger daily and ex
pects to go to Washington when the
court meets m October.
Terdlct Againat Colonel MoClnre.
Philadelphia, April 18. Ex-Mayor
William B. Smith of this city has se
cured a verdict of $15,000 damages
against The Times and its editor, Col
onel A. K. McClure, for having charged
that Smith owed large sums of money,
had given bogus checks and fled from
the country. Just before the trial ended
Colonel McClure caused a sensation in
court. He arose, and addressing Judge
Gordon, alleged that he was not being
treated fairly by the court and also that
his witnesses were being bribed. He
also requested his attorneys to with
draw from the case. The judge said
the court was not showing any favor.
Ex-Senator Ingalls Addresses Veterans.
Macon, Mo., April 18. At the open
ing of the G. A. R. encampment the
chief feature of interest was ex-Senator

would be joined together by common
ties of business and political interest and
would be invincible. Mayor Webster
Davis of Kansas City delivered the
formal welcoming address to the veterans.

Worried Over His Chinese Son-in-law.
Kansas City, April 18. A. L. Sharp,
a well known local capitalist, while en
route to St. Louis became possessed
with a violent fit and had to be removed
from the train. His condition is serious.
It was Mr. Sharp's daughter who 10
days ago eloped with her Chinese Sun
day school pupil, a laundryman.
Worry over his daughter's act doubtless
caused the afflicted man's condition. It
is feared he may not recover his reason.
His daughter and her Chinese husband
are somewhere in the east.
Mortgages to Be Taxed In Utah.
Salt Lake, April 18. The question
of mortgage taxation came up in the

Upward Jolt la Prices
Pittsburg, April 18. There was a
crowd of eager and excited people in the
lobby of the Stock and Oil exchange
when the gong sounded this morning.
The disastrous break in oil from $3.62
to $3.17 at the close yesterday had so
staggered brokers that they were pre
pared for anything today. But the sur
prise was an agreeable one to holders ol
certificates, for the opening quotation
was $3.25, and this was immediately
followed by a sale at $2.40, an adv. 2
of 23 points over yesterday's closing.
From this it sold down to $2.374 and at
10:30 was quoted at $3.41 bid. The Stand
ard again raised its price this morning,
but only 10 cents. It now stands a
$3.60, and for the first time since the
boom struck the market the exchange
price is below the Standard's. Reports
from all the fields indicate that there is
no cessation in activity and the pros
pect for new territory goes on with un
At noon oil was quoted at $3.55 bid.
Speculators are getting over their scare
of yesterday and are gaining confidence.

Pittsburg, Anril 18. The Association
of Iron and Steel Sheet manufac
turers met here and advanced the price
on all finished products one-tenth of a
cent a pound, or $3 a ton. The manu
facturers also paved the way for another
increase on July 1 by adopting a resolu
tion that no orders be taken beyond that
date even at advanced prices. One of
the manufacturers stated that the inten
tion was to make another advance of f 3
on July 1. The reason assigned for the
advance is the increased prices for raw
material. As almost all the output for
black plate is controlled by this associa
tion, it will causo an advance on tin

Dramatic Scene In a Chicago Court.
Chicago, April 18. A dramatic scene
occurred in Judge Stein's court when
Mrs. Parento, an Italian woman, knelt
in the court room and thanked God
that her husband's slayer had been con
demned to death. Silverio Barelli had
been on trial for the killing last Novem
ber of Dominic Parento. Tho jury re
turned a verdict of guilty today,
recommending the death penalty. Mrs.
Parento, who had been a constant at
tendant at the trial, fell upon her knees
and poured out a fervent prayer of
thanks that her husband's murderer
was to meet his death. She called down
blessings upon the heads of the jurors
and then, turning to the judge, passion
ately pleaded that he would see that the

Stamp Counterfeiter Arrested.
Cincinnati, April 18. It has just
been made public that George Morrison,
one of the counterfeiters of the 2-cent
postage stamp, was arrested in the Cin

Another Fair Sensation.
San Francisco, April 18. There is
quite a sensation in financial circles over
a note for $300,000 involving the Stan

New York, of whom nobody appears to

Double Chicago Tragedy.

expressman, and Miss Holden were
found in a dying condition from the
effects of poison at 114 North Wood
street, the residence of Miss Holden's

Paris, April 18. The Petit Journal
Bays it has good authority to state that
the police department is busily at work
investigating an anarchist plot to assas
sinate President Felix Faure during the
fetee to be held in Havre in honor of his
visit to his electorate. The president
arrived there safely today.
According to The Petit Journal an
anarchist, known as "Petit Bordeaux,"
a man of a type similar to Caserio, the
murderer of President Carnot, and
Bavachol, the anarchist who was exe
cuted after having been convicted of be
ing concerned in dynamite outrages,
left London recently on his way to
Havre in order to assassinate President
Faure. Petit Bordeaux, who is a de
serter from the French army, was
watched by the London police and by
the French detectives detailed to keep
an eye on anarchists in London. Con
sequently his departure from London
was promptly signalled to the police of
Paris and of Havre. The authorities of
these two cities and elsewhere aro tak
ing the most active precautions in order
to protect the president from injury.
Whether the story is true or not it
would seem certain, at least, that the
anarchists have recommenced opera
tions, for two infernal machines were
found in this city yesterday. The first
was found in the Rue St. Simon and
contained a number of loaded cartridges,
and the second was found on the Espla
nade des Invalides and consisted of a
cylinder charged with dynamite.
