THE POWER WITH THE PEOPLE.
Thy Alone Can Proceed "Against
the Plnkerton PoliceThe Gov
ernor cannot do it
Lincoln, Neb., Mnj 21. Iu conversa
tion with Governor Thayer, he suiil:
"My view id just this that if the
I'inkfiton men are guilty of violation of
law if they nre noting rs officers with
out authority, the courts of Vat and
Douglas counties must take cognizance
of the matter. If they are eommittiDg
offenftes, any citizen of Cass county or of
Douglas county can go before :i magis
trate and make complaint, and is his duty
to do so. Then the Pinketton men can
b brought into court. That is the only
course that can be pursued. I have no
more authority to force them out of the
stute than has any other citizen. There
seems to be a great deal of ignorance up
on the pu t of some parties as to the
power posesscd by the governor. I can
only act when tha civil autotities are un
able to protect life and property. Then
and then alone can I call the military
force of the state into action.
"I am not in favor of the Pinkerton
nu-n at all, but I am not going to violate
the law by forcing them out, as there has
been no invasion of tha state such as tin.
constitution contemplates. I do no know
whether the Pinkcrtons are armed or not.
I never saw them have anything but the
ordinary policeman's club, which all
"I want this destinctly understood,
that it is for the counties where the
Piukcrtons have been kept to take the
proper steps to bring them to task.
Should I take steps to force them out
how long would if be before I
wou'd be denounced as a usur
per i I am ready to execute the law when
ever I .mi called upon to do it, but no
cill ha been made upon mo as yet. I
have bjen from tha start opposed to tha
presence of the Pinkerloa men, but no
case has yet occurred in which I could
"I cannot order the attorney general
I can only request him to take action in
any case. But should I ask him to pro
ceed in this matter, his answer woul I be
that the presacuting attorneys of Cass
and Douglass counties should take the
necessary action in the first place. It is
not for the attorney general to commence
proceedings, but is the province of local
authorities, wherever the Pinkertons may
violate the law. They are there for that
purpose and the Pinkertons would have
to be treated just the same any other
violators of law. If they are actiu as
policemen contrary to law the piosecut
ing attorneys should proceed against
The Fountain City Disaster.
Pcr.nr.o, Colo., May 20. On the day
following the Fountain City explosion.
President Strong, of the Sante Fe, passed
through Fountain aud viewed the dam
age. He at onca determined that, not
withstanding the fact that the Sante Fe
company was not liable for damage to
property, the company would, so far as
was in its power, relieve the people by
paying all claims for damages Claim
Agent C. M. Foulkes was telegraphed to
go to Fountain and settle claims. A
committee of citizens was appointed, the
damages were assessed, and today Mr.
Foulkes paid every claim presented by
th? people of Fountain for damages,
aud the work of rebuilding has nt once
commenced. At a mass meeting of the
citizen. of Fountain today, preamble and
resolutions were adopted thanking the
Qant Fa Iliilroad Company for its lib
eral and fair payment of all claims which
it was not compelled to pay, and request
ing general ivjhlication '-f the fact. The
exact am )Udt of tlu claims for damages
paid is not known, but it is estimated at
at between $.000 and $fi000.
Hail in Western tjsbraska.
Giiant, Neb., May 20. A Very heavy
rain storm swept oyer western Nebraska
today. In the southern part of this
c-unty and the northern part cf Ghaae
considerable hail fell, .damaging to a
blight extent the early crops. The Her
ald can tell its readers' that the desert
theory is completely "submerged."
Ccktis, Neb., May 2Q. A terrific rind
storm, accompanied by rain apd some
hail, swept oyer this place about 7 p. m.
The storm was quite general and lasted
for three hours, ths rain falling in tor
rents. It is thought that it did consid
erable damage but uu particulars as yet.
Had to Have a Wife.
St. Joseph, May 21. Robert Burns, a
wealthy merchant of Gardner, Colo., ad
vertised i a paper for a wife. He got
six answers, apd his choice. wlfQ I J yes iu
Lincoln, III., failed to show up. After
waiting one week he married the second
choice, who lives in St. Joseph now.
Sheriff Hamilton of York Dies Un
der the Knife. ,
Youk, Neb., Maf 20 James II. Ham
ilton, the popular sheriff of Yorkcouuty,
is dead. He died uddenly at his homo
in this city this morning under the most
painful circumstances. He was in good
health and was on the street in the early
morning. At 11 o'clock he prepared to
have an operation performed on a case of
fistulus piles, from which he has been
suffering for some time. Drs. Shilder
and Davis were called to perform the
operation, and gave the patient a dose of
chloroform. The action of the drug
caused paralysis of the heart, and in ten
minutes this apparently strong, healthy
man was a corpse. He has served the
county in the office of sheriff for eight
years, and was accounted the most sue
cessful officer in Nebraska. His death
will be deplored all over Nebraska.
A Mysterious Shooting Aflair.
Auhukst, Va., May 20. Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas, living near hear, went off to a
church meeting, leaving their son Henry,
iged 0, in charge of three small children.
When the parents returned they found
this youth lying on the floor bathed in
blood, aud th.i children were more or less
hurt, stooping around him. He was in
sensible, having been shot in the head
'and his skull fractured. He can not sur
vive through the night. The three child

Vilack man came out of thi woods and
shot in the room at them. It seems a de
liberate attempt to assassinate. From all
that can be picked up from the frighten
ed statements of the little children, the
assassin did not quit until he was sure he
had accomplished his work.
A Stranger Under a Train.
CoLULiiCtf, Neb., May 21. A man who
gave his name as "William Cass, a German,
age about thirty-five, late of St. Paul,
Minn., was found this morning near the
Union Pacific depot with oue of his legs
broken in two places. The amputation
of the limb will be necessary. He was
removed to St. Mary's hospital. While
taking a free ride, and being under the
influence of liquor, he is supposed to
have fallen under the train. He refused
to account for the accident.
Importance of Owning Land.
There is something worth thinking
about In the remarks of a Buffalonian re
turned from California: "Americans na
tive born have no idea of the importance
of owning land. They have let foreigners
come here and buy hundreds of thousands
of acres of land, and just because it was
cheap the American citizen wouldn't have
It. The result is that when the values
rise, as in many cases out west, th
foreigner was the one to prifit by it. In
San Francisco you will find a great many
very wealthy Chinamen who own valua
ble blocks of stores and flats, and who are
powerful competitors of the American
merchants. The rich Chinaman can
knock out the rich American when it
comes to buying goods in China for export
to this conntry, and so it goes. Every
young native born American, of whatever
parentage, should acquire at least same
real property if he expects to keep up
with the 'baad wagon' in the future."
Siclr Folk In Florida.
Some of the sick ones who went to
Florida last winter have returned, and
are commenting upon the avalanche of
cures that were recommended for "their
consideration. All the old timers at St.
Augustine had books full of prescriptions
that were warranted to cure anything,
from a heartache to patching a pair of
goloshes. "My!" said one of the returned
patients, "if I had taken a hundredth
part of the nostrums thrust upon me, I
would have been in Cypress Dills months

Historian l'nrton First Hook.
James Parton is living in a quiet part of
the picturesque old town of Newburyport.
A writer in The Boston Post tells the story
of how Parton, who was born in England
B.txty-six years agq, came tq be the popu
lar Toiographer of many eminent Ameri
cans: "One day, while he was employed
on The New York Home Journal, he dined
at. a restaurant wjth Mason Brothers,
publishers, and the talk turned upon
boqks Parton happened to say. 'What
an interesting story could be made out of
the Hfe of Horace Greeley if a person could
only get at the facts 1 One of the pub
lishers said, 'Why don't you do itr The
young man replied that it would require
and expensive journey and a year of labor,
and that he could not afford it. A few
days later the firm agreed to advance the
money requisite, and the tjOok was thus
assured. Parton went from house to house
in New Hampshire and Vermont, making
inquiries. Thirty thousand copies of the
worlf were told, which yielded the author
$2,000 above he cost of production.
'Upon that most insufficient capital,' the
author said. 'I had the temerity tP set tip
in business as a book maker.' ' The Ar

can earn in taking a girl to the theatre

has saved to get a divorce.
PRETENDING TO EE CRIPPLED.
A f.'lasa of Malingerer VTIio Soelt to Ile
rortr Damage from IlailrondH.
Of late years a new class of malingerers
has arisen. This Is composed of tho peo
ple who. wheu any accident happens to a
railway train, steamboat or other convey
ance owned by a corporation or rich person
ut which they are present as passengers,
pretend that they have been seriously
injured and forthwith bring suit nga'uiit
tho proprietors in immense sums for dam
ages A smattering of medical knowledge
is very soon acquired by these people dur
ing their examinations by their physicians,
and they uro thus often enabled to cut a
pretty good figure before a jury. I do not
think it is at all dillicult to detect these
It is rarely the case that they are so
consistent in their detail of alleged symp
toms and in their conduct as to doceivo a
medical man thoroughly well skilled in
his profession. Besides this, they gener
ally overact their part in their efforts to
deceive, ami. if snliji-: lei! to e!.i..- m-;
for some considerable timo, or at periods
when they do not suspect that they aro
watched, scarcely ever fail to show them
selves in their true colors
Not long since I was applied to by a
young man, who informed mo that, about
a month previously, in getting oil a street
railway car, lie had been violently thrown
to tho ground, so that ho had wienehed
his back, had become partially panllyzcd
in both legs, and had, besides, sustained
serious internal injuries In addition to
wanting my professional advice ho do
sired an examination, with a special view
of having mo to testify before a court in a
suit for $20,000 damages, which lie in
tended to institute agiinst tho railway
company I caused him to take off his
clothes, and I found at onco that there
was no emaciation. On tho contrary, his
body was remarkably well nourished. IIo
complained of pain in the upper region of
tho spine, and screamed in apparent
agony when I slightly touched that part
of hi3body It seemed to nio then that
there was an unusual degree of sensitive
ness, aud not at all such as would have
been developed had ho been really injured
in tho way he described. The gra&p of
his hand was very weak, but at the samo
time his muscles wero largo and well
I was satisfied even at tho time that he
was making tho most of his condition, i
not actually deceiviug me. I next asked
him tc walk around tho room until I told
him to stop At first he tottered over the
floor as if about to fall at every step and
complained of great pains in his legs As
he continued walking, however, I kept
him in conversation, so as to divert his
mind from himself. As a consequence lie
was thrown off his guard, as I expected
he would bo, so that after a half a dozen
turns his gait was measurably improved,
and at times was as good as it ever had
been Of course, if there had been any
real paralysis, every step he took would
have added to his lameness Some other
methods of examination with instruments
of precision placed tho fact of his fraud tt
lent pretensions beyond a doubt. I then
accused him of deception, and recapitu
lated to him the points which by his iu
sufficient knowledge of the subject had
led to his detection After numerous pro
testations he confessed that he had been
drilled by an attorney to sim.iiate sound
injury with a view to defrauding the rail
way company. Dr. William A. UaniHiOiid

Fires on t strain bo it.
I don't think there is a boat on tho Mis
sissippi river that is without all tha beat
modern appliances for extinguishing tires,
but when a fire breaks out on the boat
there is nobody who knows how to handle
the apparatus Fighting fires is a science
that it takes years of experience to ac
quire. Steamboat managers never seem
to have thought of this, so their boats,
when once on fire, are certain to be do
stroyod. 0ii6 experienced fireman em
ployed on each boat could drill the boat
men and manage the fighting of a Ere. so
that it would be impossible for a steam
boat to burn A few years ago, when the
city's harbor boat caught fire, we had to
go down to the levee and put out the fire,
although the harbor boat has on her lower
deck the finest kind of apparatus for fight
ing fire. Assistant Fire Chief in (Hobo
The Pervasiveness of Ligl.tniii
