Reference is made in the dis
patches to the anniversary of the
massacre of Scio as being a danger
ous day in Greece. It ought to be
one of the bitter memories. In 1822
Scio, with a population of 104,000
Greeks, joined the Greek revolu
tion. In April of that year came
the massacre. Within two months
23,000 Sciotes, without distinction
of age or sex, were put to the
sword; 47,000 were sold into slavery
and 5,000 fled to other parts of
Greece. By the end of August only
2,000 christians remained. Little
wonder that memories of Scio
should make Greeks furious against
the Turks. Inter Ocean.
The set-back given the beet
sugar industry by the late fusion
legislature is one of the sever
est blows the prosperity of the
state has received for a long time.
Nebraska, the pioneer in this com
ing great industry, would have kept
the lead had the proper encourage
ment been given the industry, but
as matters now exist, little advance
can be expected. Wisconsin, Min
nesota, New York and other pro
gressive states are taking a lively
interest in the industry, and state
aid' in the shape of a bounty will be
given both the manufacturers and
beet raisers. There is no ques
tion but the Nebraska legislature
has been penny wise and pound
foolish in knocking out the bounty
on beet sugar provided by the former
republican legislature, and which
meant a multiplication of factories
in a short time.
It is a pleasure to be able to read
the plain handwritting on the
wall" which shows returning confi
dence and a steady and sure de
mand for good cattle. There is
money in the breeding business
now if properly cotiducted. We do
not mean fancy prices, but good
paying prices will be obtained for
good stock of almost any kind. Our
Jive stock feeding industry has re
sumed again in our state with
jrreater interest than ever before
and that is because of big corn and
hay crops and low prices. A great
many of our people have been pre
vented from feeding live stock for
lack of money or credit with which
to buy. The demand for cattle
suitable for feeding has been so
great that the prices has been
equal and above that paid for fat
cattle at the stock yards. Is
it difficult to see the remedy? If
you cannot buy feeders, raise them.
It may be a. slow way, yet it is
sure. It is not safe to speculate,
nor to go in debt; neither is it good
business policy to make money
too fast, or expect prosperity to
come in one, two or three years,
D. W.Y00EHEES DEAD
TALL 5YCAMORE OF THE VABASH
One of the Democratic Leaders and a
Picturesque Figure In the Senate Prior
to His Retirement on March 4 Inter
ment at Terre Haute.
Washington, April 11. Dauiol Wol
sey Voorhees, ox-sonator from Indiana,
died at 5 a. in. at his homo in this oity,
105 Maryland aveune. Tho exsnmtor
had been in poor health forsvvvxrnl
years, and for the hist two years of his
term had taken littlo part in tho pro-;
ceedings in the senate. Ho had boon a
constant sufferer from rheumatism of
tho heart, and his friends, thoroforo, had
come to expect that they might hear of (
his death suddenly? Tho last report
from him, however, was that ho was
showing sigus of improvement.
At tho close of his term tho "Tall
Sycamore of tho Wabash," as ho was
affectionately called by his dovotod fol
lowers in tho Hoosier stato, was tho
DANIEL W. VOORHEES.
raukiug Democrat on the finance com
mittee and, by virtue of this position,
the nominal leader, at least of his party,
on the floor of the senate on tariff and
financical questions. Ho was not very
active, however, owing to his ill health,
in tho work on the Wilson tariff bill,
most of the numerous senato amend
ments to this bill and its final passage,
after a stormy career, in which it was
in serious danger several times, being
due to Senator Jones of Arkansas.
The senator's son, Reese N. Yoorhees,
had remained in the room with his
father during the night and was awak
ened about 4 o'clock this morning by
his father, who was then suffering great
pain in the region of the heart. He re
fused, however, to allow a physician to
be called, saying the pain would pass
away. Half an hour later he appeared
much better and got out of bed to walk
to the bathroom, his son being with
him. When they entered the hallway,
the ex-senator was attacked by a more se
vere spasm than ho had yet experienced
and fell in a semiconscious condition
into his sou's arms. Tho latter carried
the now dying man back to his bed and
summoned Dr. Shoup, a neighboring
physician. It was too late, however,
for any aid to be of avail, and the ex
senator soon passed away with
out regaining full consciousness. Only
his son, Reese; his daughter, Miss Hallie
Voorhees, and the physician were pres
ent when he died. The remains will bo
taken to Terre Haute, Iud., the ex-sena- j
tor's homo for so many years, for inter
ment. Ex-Senator Voorhees' Funeral.
Terre Haute, Ind., April 15. Tho
remains of ex-Senator Daniel W. Voor
hees were lying in stato at the Terre
Haute liouse yesterday, where a con
stant stream of callers passed in review.
Among those who called to pay the last
tribute was ex-Secretary of the Navy
Richard W. Thompson. The funeral
was held at 2 p. in. at St. Stephen's
Episcopal church, from which church
Mrs. Voorhees was buried 10 years ago.
DOUBLE HANGING AT JERSEY CITY.
John Maclun and Paul Genz Expiate Their
Jersey City, N. J., April 14. John
Maclrin, Jr., was hanged at 10:08 a. in.
Mackin, who was 24 years old, killed his
wife and her mother, Mrs. Bridget Con
nors, Feb. 27, 1896. He married Mary
Connors five years ago. He was out of
work most of the time and was not wel
comed at his wife's home, where she
lived with her parents. After he had
been refused admittance to the house on
the day of tho murder, ho secured a gun
and returning, shot his wife and her
mother and almost succeeded in killing
his father-in-law. Ho was arrested and
cut his throat the same night with a
razor he had concealed in his shoe,
Mackin recovered and pleaded guilty,
but according to New' Jersey proceed
ings this plea was not accepted.
Paul Genz was hanged at 11:10 a. m.
Genz killed his mistress, Clara Arnin,
in Hoboken Aug. 28, 1894.
Chinese Dylm? hy Hundreds or Starvation.
San Francisco, April 18. Accord
ing to advices brought by tho Gaelic,
natives in tho vicinity of Lchang, China,
are dying by hundreds of starvation.
The maize crop last year was almost a
total failure, and as the people ex
changed their maize for rice to last
them through the winter, food lias been
scant lor a long time, supplies are
now completely exhausted and the har
vest of death has begun. The officials
are making efforts to furnish food for
the starving people by sending in rice,
but tho supplies they are able to con
tribute are so small and tho number of
those in direct need is so great that lit
tlo good is accomplished.

CAPTAIN GARCIA FATALLY GORED
Tragic Climax of the Five Days Sport
at Tumi, Arl.
Yuma, Ari., April 13. La Grand
Fiesta do Yuma wound up last night
with wild west sports and Spanish bull
lights, which constituted a crowning
foatnro of tho fivo days' revelry. Tho
feature of tho show which drew the
crowds was tho Spanish bull fight,
headed by tho renowned bull fighter,
Captain Carlos Garcia, from Juarez,
Mcx. Captain Carlos Garcia and his
troupo of toreadors, including La Car
lota, a female bull fighter, displayed
wonderful skill in fighting fierce an
imals, but a magnificent black bull,
Porforio Diaz, proved himself almost in
vinciblo, and before he was dispatched
in tho third fight in which ho was used,
ho caught Captain Garcia upon his long
slender horns and ripped open the man's
jaw. Captain Garcia's wound may
After goring and badly mutilating
Garcia, tho bull, stung to frenzy by the
toreadors, charged full at tho bull pen,
and after several desperato attempts, ho
smashed into kindling wood a panel of
tho pen and charged into tho grounds
surrounding the amphitheater, which
were filled with people. Many were in
jured. The roulette table, stacked with
gold and silver coins, was tossed high
in the air and the money scattered in
tho dust. Straight through tho crowd
the enraged bull sped, out into tho main
street of Yuma, but fortunately no
more people wero in the way. After a
long chase and hard work, tho bull was
Appointments Arc Made Under the Act
of March 3.
Washington, April 14. The presi
dent last night announced the appoint
ment of Senator Wolcott of Colorado,
Hon. Charles J. Payne of Boston and
ex-Vice President Adlai E. Stevenson as
commissioners to an international mone
tary conference. These appointments
wero mado undor tho act approved
March 3 last, for tho "promotion of an
international agreement for bimetal
lism" and by its provisions do not re
quire confirmation by the senate. It
has been generally conceded that Sen
ator Wolcott would be made a member
of the commission. His trip to Europe
last fall was generally conceded to be
at least semi-official. His tour extended
over several months and embraced tho
leading European capitals. He had
audience with the more noted financiers
and ministers and it is believed then
laid the foundation for the international
conference, which tho commission will
endeavor to bring to a conclusion.
It is not known yet when the commis
sioners will meet and organize. When
an organization is effected, however, ic
is believed that Senator Wolcott will bo
made president. It is authoritatively
stated that tho commission will not go
abroad before May 1, by which time the
now ambassadors will be at their posts
and render the special envoys the assist
ance necessary in the consummation of

AN EXCITING DAY AT FRANKFORT.
Seven Ballots Taken For United States
Senator Without Result.
Frankfort, Ky., April 15. Wednes
day was an exciting day in the legisla
ture, which adjourned at 3 p. in. with
the fight still pending. Seven ballots
were taken for United States senator,
making 42 ballots that have been taken
at the present extra session.
The vote in some of the ballots was
changed by temporary pairs, but uono
of the changes of the day were mate
rial. Dr. Hunter, the Republican nom
i inee, had 61 votes and the field had G3.
j The field had just tho required number
for election, one tne JaiacKDurn men,
the gold Democrats, and the bolting Re
publicans could not unite on anybody.
Ex-Secretary Carlisle has arrived at his

Iramenso N timber of Farms nnd Cotton
Plantations Arc Under "Water last
Year's .Production Worth Nearly Four
Million Dollars on Submersed Area.
Washington, April 12. A statement
relative to tho agricultural interests of
tho submerged districts of the Missis
sippi valley south of Cairo, Ills., has
been issued by the department of agri
culture. It is based upon a chart pre
pared under the direction of the chief of
the weather bureau, showing the extent
of the flood on April G.
The total area under water on April
G was about 15,800 square miles, of
which 7,1)00 square miles was in Missis
ippi, 4,500 square miles in Arkansas,
1,750 square miles in Missouri, 1,200 in
Tennessee and 450 in Louisiana.
The flooded districts contain, it is esti
mated, about 811,500 farms, of which
about 18,500 aro in Mississippi, nearly
10,000 in Aarkansas and a like number
about equally divided between Missouri
and Tennessee. These farms contain a
total area of about 3,800,000 acres, one
half of which is in Mississippi and
rather over ono-fourth in Arkansas, tho
proportions in Missouri and Tennessee
being about the same.
About 1,500,000 acres of the area
under water wero last year devoted to
cotton and corn, to which crops nearly
95 per cent of the entire acreage culti
vated is devoted. It is estimated that
of tho crops of last year over 3,750,000
worth remained on hand in tho sub
merged region at tho last of tho month,
cotton representing about two-thirds of
this amount and corn practically all the
The entire recnou under water on
April 6 produced last year about 370,000
bales of cotton, valued at close to 13,
000,000; over 11,000,000 bushels of corn,
worth about $3,400,000, and wheat, oats,
potatoes and hay worth over $800,000

Stationary Stage of "Water Reported In the
Missouri at Omaha.
Omaha, April 15. This morning
North Omaha and portions of East
Omaha were deeper under water by at
least three inches than they were yes
terday. Tins rise has brought about a
consequent spread of the flood upon a
greater area of the lowlands, but beyond
the flooding of fields, no additional dam
age has been done.
The rise upon tho East Omaha bot
toms was due to a rise in the Missouri
river. At 10 o'clock this morning the
river was two and one-half inches higher
than it was at G o'clock last night. It
is now stationary at what is termed tho
danger line, with not an inch to spare.
Although no further damage has been
done by the flood, the people residing
on the East Omaha bottoms wero in a
state of suspense last night and this

WEAK SPOTS IN
Crest of tho Flood "Wave Is
New Orleans, April 13. Each day
now adds a few inches to the river's
height and tho long expected crest of
the flood wave is on the move. It ought
to reach here in a few days. In the
meantime tho anxiety is increasing all
along the line, for more weak spots aro
developing. From north Louisiana
comes the news that the Biggs levee, be
low Vicksbnrg, sustained, a terrific at
tack and nearly succumbed, but relief
was prompt. Just above New Orleans
comes the news of three weak spots al
most in a row, one in St. Charles par
ish and the other two at Hanson's City
and Camp Parapet. A break of either
of the latter two points would involve
considerable Illinois Central property
and send the water knocking at the
door of New Orleans.
Firebuprs at Kansas City,
Kansas City, April 15. Kansas City
seems to have been at the mercy of a
band of incendiaries between 0 o'clock
last night and 1 o'clock this morning.
Seven fires broke out in the very busi
ness center of the town. At least four
and probably all of these fires were of
incendiary origin. While the majority
of the blazes were extinguished in their
incipiency, two of them resulted in
heavy damages. The big five-story
Scarritt block on Walnut street near
Ninth, was destroyed, entailing a loss
of 00,000, and from this structure the
flames spread to an adjoining structure
on Main street, also owned by tho Scar
rett estate and occupied by the Carroll
Eaton Crockery company. The build
ing on Main street was damaged to tho
extent of 10,000 and the crockery stock
suffered an equal damage. Only by a
very narrow margin were other adjoin
ing buildings saved from destruction.

PASS THE LIQUOR BILL.
Iowa Honse Committee to Investigate
State Officers Reports.
Des Moines, April 15. Tho house
committee to investigate state officers
which has been working since Feb. 8
and has subpoenaed hundreds of wit
nesses, reported yesterday afternoon to
the house. The committee finds much
extravagance in state offices it: the em
ployment of clerks and capitol janitors,
both in number and salaries paid. Tho
report charges extravagance by the ex
ecutive council and recoiamends that its
powers be curtailed. Supplies have not
been accurately accounted for and re
form is demanded in this respect. Tho
number of committee clerks should bo
reduced. The state census cost the
state 128,000 and is very unreliable.
Clerks were paid too much and some,
according to the report, wero made to
contribute to McFarlaud, then secretary
of state, to hold their jobs. Tho state
printer is freed from the chargo of pad
ding census reports. The charges aro
made against the system, not against in
dividuals, who are said to have followed
the letter of the law.
The senate passed an amendment to
the mulct law permitting the manufac
turing of liquor in Iowa upon separate
petition in tho counties. The vote
stood: Yeas, 26; nays, 24. This ques
tion has been hanging firo in the state
for some time. The bill has to co back
to the house, as several amendments
were mado m the senate, but it is
thought it will bo successfully passed
there. This law will permit tho manu
facture of all kinds of liquors iu Iowa,
which has been prohibited since tho
passage of the prohibitory law in 1882
AN UPRISING IN PORTO RICO.
Islanders Ilavo Taken Up
Against the Government.
New York, April 9. Dr. Henna,
president of the Porto Eico revolution
ary committee in this city, has received
information from the commission on the
island of Porto Rico to tho effect that
the country has taken up arms againstf he
Spanish government, the uprising hav
ing taken place in Yauco and Adjuntas.
Dr. Henna, upon receipt of the news,
at once called together all tho members
of the committeo and held a conference
with them at his home. One of the
members of the committee said: "The
movement in Porto Rico has started
rather earlier than wa expected and
agreed upon, but, no doubt, circum
stances of which wo know nothing must
have compelled our brethren in Porto
Rico to take the step at once."
Referring to-tho chances of success of
the revolution, he said: "The spirit of
the people in Porto Rico is such at tho
present time that any movement to over
throw the Spanish yoke is almost sure
to succeed. The Porto Ricans are tired
of Spanish misrule. All we want is to
raise an army of 5,000 men, and with
such ah army we can carry every place
in the island by assault. The reforms
voted by the Spanish cortes were not
put in force until recently, and their
practical advantages are alleged to bo of
More Evidcnco of Ilrihery.
Topeka, Kan., April 14 Further evi
dence of bribery was developed before
the legislative investigating committee
yesterday afternoon. Senator Campbell
of Labette county said he had been ap
proached in the senate cloak room by a
man who offered him several hundred
dollars to vote for the Hanna stockyards
bill. He refused to give the man's
name. Asked if it wero not Legislator
Walters of Labette county, Campbell
refused to say, saying it would como
out later. He was willing to say, how
ever, that State Senator Hanna had
sent a note to a member of the house
asking him to see him (Campbell) and
urge him to vote for the Hanna bill
At another time ho had been approached
by one Corning, but nothing definite
came of it. Dr. Marks, representative
from Jefferson county, said ho was ap
proached by two men and that one of
them said that if he (Marks), as a mem
ber of the conference committee, would
block the text lxok bill, he would
be given 2,000. Senator Lupfer, who
also was on the conference committee,
had said he too was approached with a

Athens, April 12. Accounts are very
conflicting as to what really happened
last Friday, when the frontier was
crossed by tho insurgents. A special
correspondent of the Associated Press
went to Larissa Saturday evening and
ascertained that the invaders numbered
upward of 3,000. Among them ware
tho Amilitare Prini and his Italian vol
unteers. Tho entire forco was under
the command of three ex-officers of tho
Greek army. Kapsalopeulas, Mylanos
and Ziepetres, and four Macedonian
chiefs, Szermas, Davelis, Vrakas and
The rendezvous was at Koniskos, a
village near Kalabanka. The men were
all fully armed and wore tho national
costume, their black fur caps bearing
tho band and initials of the Ethnike
Hetairia, embroidered in blue and white,
with the words "En Ton Tolnika" cross
ing the initials in black.
On Friday a monk from Mount Athos,
assisted by his abbot and two deacons,
held a religious service at Koniskoff, at
which all members of the invading
body partook of the Sacrament and
registered the oath of the order, "Lib
erty or Death."
In addition to largo quantities of
ammunitions and provisions, the force
had 3,000 pounds of gold. During Fri
day night following the service the
frontier was crossed, the force moving
in the direction of Schuik. While this
movement was in progress a second
band, the number of which is unknown,
held a rendezvous, as in Nezeros, on the
frontier north of Larissa and near the
coast. This band was similarly
equipped, had a similar mission and
took the same oath. It was commanded
by tho Macedonian chief, Sinsinikos.
It crossed tho frontier on Thursday
night, marching on Karya.
As everywhere in the Vale of Tempo,
this portion of the frontier, tho roads
and bridges are in a condition of thor
ough repairs. Sunday morning the roar
of artillery could be plainly heard at
Larissa from the direction of Karya,
where Sinsinikos is evidently forcing
he latest advices here report that a
portion of the invading forces continue
to besiege the barracks at Baltino. The
remainder has continued the advance,
but to a destination as yet unknown at
Athens. It is reported that communi

are cut off.

Jumped From the Omaha Bridge.
Omaha, April 11. Thomas Dinnen,
from Maquoketa, la., while intoxicated,
either jumped or was thrown over the
Douglas street bridge last night shortly
after 1:30. Dinnen was taken to tho
station, where it was found that his left
leg was fractured in two places and that
he was badly injured about tho face and
hands. A search of his person revealed
the fact that he had been robbed of all.
his money and jewelry. He was later
removed to the Clarkson hospital, where
he died early in tho morning.
"Wrecker's Plans Fail.
Omaha, April 13. It is the impression
at Union Pacific headquarters that the
rails placed on the bridge near Schuyler
-Saturday night, which shook up local
train No. 5, were put there by some
man with the intention of wrecking the
train. The rails wero wedged in between
the ties and the fact that tho train was
successful in clearing the obstruction
without going off tho bridgo is consid
ered nothing less than miraculous by
the Union Pacific officials. There has
been no trace of the suspected man
found so far as was known at head
quarters, but it is believed that he can
not escape. The impression in the sand
and mud of toothpick shoes gives tho
officers a clew.
