Thursday over the H. A: M., Mrs.
Macon of Fngle, Cass county, had
taken oil her shoes to afford relief
to her tireil feet, and just before
repelling Lincoln when she went to
don them again she was astonished
to discover that they had disap
peared. She complained to the con
ductor and a search was instituted.
Aboard the train was a German
named Hamstead, or something
like that, who is employed by the
company as a laborer. He was
noticed to throw his bucket off

Lincoln. The conductorand brake
man went back, found the bucket
and the lost shoes in it. They re
stored them to the owner.

Cor.NTY ALLIANCE IX TKOl'HLE.
Frank Kimsey and Jerry Hiitton
were arrested at Sedan, Chautauqua
county Kansas last night for the
murder of John S. Frazier, a wealthy
cattle man, June L'8, ly.io. Kimsey
and Hiitton are members of a sub
alliance in Chautauqua county and
yesterday twenty-four warrants
were issued for the arrest of the
remaining members of the alliance
who are charged with being in the
conspiracy. The arrests were made
through the instigation of Gover
nor Humphrey, and the detectives
who have worked up the case claim
to be in possession of the facts
which prove that the murder of
Fraizer was discussed in secret al
liance meetings and the men ar
rested appointed to do the work.
John S. Frazier. the murdered man,
brought from Texas, February 'JS,
IV W a herd of 3,K0 cattle. It was
during a fever scare and the sub- 1
alliance, which had adopted strong
resolutions against cattle barons
and monopolies, took the matter in
charge and a grand ant i-monopoly
committee from thirteen sub-alliances
waited on Frazier and
served notice on him that he must
move his herd. Frazier refused to
comply but offered to pay for every
Lead of cattle which died from
fever. About ten days later five
miles of w ire fencing surrounding
the pasture of Gibson A: Frazier
were cut and the detecti'-es conten

on which the tences were cut the

Although the campaign has
scarcely opened in ( Hoe county it is
evident that Field's strength is in
creasing daily. Mr. Hryan, as many
call hiiii there, "Young-Man-Afraid
of-Watson," will not walkaway with
Otoe county this year. The em
phatic "no" given to tht proposi
tion at the alliance convention to
endorse Bryan shows plainly that
they have sized William up and
found him wanting. Hryan's re
fusal to meet Watson in joint de
bate, which he could have accepted
without interfering with any dates,
as it was the first challenge of the
campaign, did not strengthen him
to any great extent in Otoe county.
Henry Gering bought a water
melon Wednesday afternoon from a
wagon on the utreet, cut it open
and took a mouthful. The melon
tasted terrible bitter and another
was cut open with the same result.
A third one was cut and was also
in the same condition as the other
two. After a closer examination
small holes were found in the melon
where strychnine or quinine had
been put i.i. The man that owned
the melons said that it must have
been put in while the melons were
in the wagon. The three melons
were lying in the corner of the
wagon ami were the only ones
there was any thing wrong with.
The grain shipments in Nebraska
have commenced and the railroads
are begin ling to feel the drain on
them. The Missouri Pacific is

City and the Hiirlington Ac Missouri
is also short by a large number of
cars. It is anticipated by some
that another western freight car
famine may be e.xprienced, as the
shipments this year will be heavier
than last year. All western roads
Lave called for their cars to be un
loaded as rapidly as possible, and
returned to the west.
Conrad Schlater, the Weeping
Water Republican says in address
ing the delegates in the democratic
convention, expressed himself in an
honest, patriotic way, if not in good
Ivnglish, when he said: "Of we
cand tranzat dis peisness without
such troubles, it is bedder we goes
home and sends our vimin to do it."
Yardmaster Atwell of the M. P. at
Weeping Water has recently had a
little more work assigned to him
and now the switch engine crew at
that point will work under his
direction in the Nebraska City
yards. This work, together with
the heavy output of stone in the
quarries near Weeping Water, will
keep the boys on the jump from
early morn till late at night.

Missouri Pacific Will Put on
Trains September 1 5.
FAST TRAINS TO ST. LOUIS.
Old Settlers' Reunion at Union Yes -
terday Passed Off In an Order-
ly Manner and Everybody
Krinii Friday's Daily.
Trains Will be Run.
Agent Apgari.. formed TllE Hkk
ALU this morning the management
of the Missouri Pacific s)stem have
at laet named the day when thty
will put on regular trains between
Omaha and Kansas City via Platts
moiitli. The following appeared in
the World-Herald this morning:
"After many moons of weary wait
ing the Missouri Pacific officials
have at last announced the date of
opening the nesv I'nion cut off. The
date is September la. On this day
the regular passenger trains will
leave the main line at I'liion, Neb.,
and run up over the cut-off via
Plattsmoiitli and Oreapolis and into
the union depot in Omaha. This
will considerably reduce the time
between Omaha, Nebraska City,
Kansas City and St. Louis. A train
will leave Omaha at 2 p. in. and ar
rive in St. Louis at 7 a. m. next
morning. The signal tower at Ore
apolis and the interlocker at Gil
more Junction have been finished
and as soon as the new time card is
finished the trains will begin run
ning. An extra train will run
out from the Webster street
depot and over the licit line
to I'liion to do the local bus
iness and will also carry pas
sengers for the south. The
town to be mostly benefited by this
is Plattsmoiitli, as it will draw
heavily on Weeping Water, where
at present the day south bound
passenger stops for meals and
where the transfer is made for Lin
coln. Passengers for Lincoln,
Omaha, however, the same as now
unless they change at I'nion. It is
said after the road bed is packed a
fast train will be put on between
Omaha and St. Louis."
The extra train spoken of above,
Mr. Apgar says, lias not been
definetly settled whether it will run
between Nebraska City and Omaha
or Union and Omaha, he also state
that there would be thro trains
each way. The trainmen will also
be benefited. They have been leav
ing Omaha at 10 o'clock and reach
Kansas City at 8 in the evening.
When tne new time card goes into
effect September 15, they will leave
Omaha at 2 in the afternoon and
will reach Kansas City at 1, which
will reduce their run five hours.
