8TANLEY A CAPTIVE.
The Mahdi's Prisoners wll be
Killed Unless Suaklm Is
Caiko, Dec. 15. If the lettern-cc-ived
at Suakiiu from Osman Digna, and which
is supposed to have contained the an
nouncement that Kmin Pasha and a
v white traveler presumably Stanley) had
fallen into the hands of the mahdi, were
cnclo.tcd copies of a dispatch from Der
vish leaders at Lado to Khalifa Pasha,
giving the date of Emin Pasha's sur
render at Octoher 10, and a letter to
Tjuin Pasha from the Khedive which the
latter handed to Henry M. Stanley when
at Cairo. It is rumored that Osuian
Digna, in his letter, expressed willingness
to surrender Emin Pusha and his white
companion provided Egypt would aban
don Suakim. If this proposal is not ac
cepted it is believed that both captives
will be killed. The Uritisli cabinet is
now discussing the situation.
IOnimn, Dec. IS. The Emin relief
expedition committee are doubtful of the
genuineness of the Osmun Digna letter.
They suggest that the khedive's letter
may be a c py stolen at Cairo, but they
thiuk it in re likely that Stanley sent on
runners to Emin with letters, and that
these runners wen captured. In any case
they are hopeful that even if Emin is a
captive, Stanley is still free.
Lo.ndox, Dec. 15. General Orenfell
recognized the letter which Osman Digna
enclosed as the original one which he had
drafted for the khedive. Thus Stanley's
capture is virtually beyond a doubt.
IJkcssels, Doc. 15. The king of Bel
gium is greatly agitated by the news
from the Soudan. He admits having
been the largest subscriber to Stanley's
Suakim, Dec. 15. Osman Digna's let
ter was a reply to Major UundleVjrequest
of last August of Emin Pasha. The letter
asserts that the mahdi has conquered the
whole of the equatorial provinces and
that one white man escaped.
The Dread White Cups
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 15. About six
months ago three southern Indiana fami
lies moved to the neighborhood of Agra,
Kas. Soon after a "white cap" organiza
tion was formed and within a few weeks
several people have received notices war
ning them to mend their ways. No at
tention was paid to the warnings and two
weeks ago missives with red fingermarks
and signed "Kan. Division White Caps"
were received. Wednesday night a farmer
who is noted for his slovenly appearance
was taken from his home, treated to a
rinsing with twenty buckets of water.
Monday night a citizen of Agra named
McDonald, accused of cruelty to his wife
was seized, bound to a telegraph pole,
and given sixty lashes. Steps are being
taken to secure an arrest of the regulators.
Kiiraln Accepts Sullivan's Chal
lenge. New York, Dec. 15. Kilrain has ac
cepted the challenge of John L. Sulliyan
to fight to a finish for $10,000. An un
known friend will cover Sullivan's money
today. The fight is to couie off within
six months or not at all.
Charley Mitchell will act as Kilrain's
manager. The parties will probably
meet in Canada to arrange the prelimi
naries, or in some other place outside the
jurisdict ion of the United States govern
ment. Kilrian is positive of his ability
to best Sullivan, although he is very
modest and does not claim to be able to
defeat his antagonist without a hard
fight. Kilrain's backer is unknown.

Fires at Lincoln.
Lincoln, Ne!. Dec. 15. Yesterday
afternoon between 3 and 4 o'clock the
handsome suburban residence of Mr. J.C.
Williams, and the two residences that
' adjoined him on the north, were discov
ered to be on fire. It occurred in the
absence of t' e family, but hard work
of the neighbors enabled them to save
t everything on the first floor. Before the
ui rival of the engines, however, the
J lines cngulphed the entire building and
the sharp south wind drove the fire into
the buildings on the noith, and dispite
the Viilit nt efforts of the firemen, they
too were soon doomed. The great
streams of water thrown upon the burn
ing building seemed to have no effect.
The household effects in the dwellings
on the north of Wiilliams' residence
were all saved. The loss is estimated at
$12,000. Two of the residences were
among the finest in that part of the city.
The origin of the fire is unknown.
At 4:15, just as the fire in the ruins of
the residences had been extinguished, a
second alarm of firs called the fire de
partment to the gai works. The fire was
started there by tlu bursting of the pipe
attacht-d to the oil pump in the south
part of the building. Tthe oil from the
bursted pipe was thrown to a burning
past jet and the interior of the building
was soon in a blaze. The winds drove
the fire rapidly through the main build
ing, and when the engines arrived it
seemed impossible to save it. Great dan
ger followed the firemen in their efforts.
The chances were against saving any
portion of the works. If the fire shou d
penetrate the walls of tha east wing of
the building or reach the retorts or res
ervoir, several livss hung in the ballance.
An excited throng hung around the
burning building The suspense was
'great. An explosion was talked of and
expected by many, but the steady stream
of water an I bravo work of the fire bri
gade prevented a greater catastrophe,but
the main building was ruined. The en
gines and machinery, however, escaped
injury. The loss is fully $10,000. At
times it seemed as if the water supply
would not meet the demand.
During the time that the fire depart
ment was engaged at the two fires above
mentioned, a small frame house near 12th
and Wood streets was burned to the

recently discussed in Germany, among
others by Dr. F. Scholz, who has given
wjuitj biniung examples trom his own
experience and observation. It is very
certain, however, that the majority of
dreams are only of momentary dura
tion, though extended occasionally to
the length of a minute. In proof of
this Dr. Scholz tells the following
story from his experience:
After excessive bodily fatigue and
a day of mental strain of a not disa
greeable kind, I betook myself to bed
after I had wound up my watch and
placed it on the night table. Then I
lay down beside a burning lamp. Soon
I found myself on the high 'sea on
board a well known ship. I was again
young, and stood on tho lookout. I
heard the roar of the water, and golden
clouds floated around me. How long
I so stood I did not know, but it seemed
a very long time. Then the scene
changed. I was in tho country, and
my long dead parents came to greet me ;
they took me to church, wliero the
loud organ sounded. I was delighted,
but at the same time wondered to see
my wife and children there. The
priest mounted the nulnit and preach
ed, but I could not understand what
he said for the sound of the organ,
which continued to play. I took my
son by tho hand, with aim ascended
the church tower but again tho scene
was changed. Instead of being near
my son I stood near an early known
but long dead oflicer I ought to ex
plain that I was an army surgeon dur
ing the maneuvers. I was wondering
why the major looked so young, when
quite close in my ears an unexpected
cannon sounded. Terrified, J was
hurrying ofl when I woke up, and
noticed that tho supposed cannon shot
had its cause in the opening of the
bedroom door through some one en
tering. It was as if I had lived
through an eternity in my dream, but
when 1 looked at my watch 1 saw that
since I had fallen asleep not more
than one minute had elansed a much
shorter time than it takes to relate the

examples of a similar kind. True

it is a legitimate living or not the pub
lic can judge. The girls don't know
anything about it, but they are a
souroe of nrolit all the same. To Ifv
gin with, there are the scurvy scrib
blers of the society papers who sell
their paragraphs about New York's
pretty women at a cent a word, and
who manage to eke a more or less
twisted and unsatisfactory living out
of the pastime. Then there are the
lithographers and tobacco and soap
box decoiistors, who take the faces of
the pirlly women of New York, color
thrm into allegorical shae, and serve
them up to the boundless millions of
the country for the purposo of deco
