Tlio jury had been sworn in and Iho
defense asked for a discharge of tlio
prisoner on tlio ground that Hcilu-r
had boon placed in jeopardy and there
fore could not lo tried again. Tho
court loniod tho request, however, and
a bench warrant was issued and flecker
renrrestol. A now indictment will be
drawn up. Tho discovery that tho in
dfctmenr was faulty created somewhat
of a sensation in tho court room.
Tho result may bo, hovevr that
Mocker will escape punishment, as tho
ease is now in such shape that tho
prisoner's c onns 1 are confident of a
reversal by tho supremo court of a
verdict of x'lilty if returned. Tho jury
had been sworn in and part of tho
evidence of tho first witness heard
when the attorneys for the defense
moved that tho defendant be dis
charged and tho jury instructed to re
turn a verdict of not guilty, as tho
evidence produced related to tho kill
ing of one Thoroso Meeker, while the
indictment alleped that tlio defendant
had murdered Klizabcth Mocker.
After a moment's exci'ed conference
between tho prosecuting attorneys tho
state moved that a nollo prosequi be
entered and tho defendant bo held on
a bench warrant. Tho defense made
tho point that if the state entered a
nolle prosequi the court must enter a
verdict of not quilty. The state main
tained that Becker had not boon in
jeopardy for tho murder of Thoroso
Mocker. Judge Stein then entered a
nollo prosequi and a bench warrant
was issued -for Mocker, Judpo Stein
sitting as a committing magistrate and
hearing evidence relating to the case.
In this proceeding the defense claims
another error was committed. The
witnesses were sworn by the clerk of

just returned from the Philippines, re
ports that in the northern islards the
young Filipinos are constiucting forti
fications against emergencies. Every
port is garrisoned by 1.000 or fo vol

very crude, only about 20 per cen be
ing armed with rifles. They are. how
ever, full of patriotism and state they
will not yield to the Americans though
the whole of the islands are destroyed.
The Hokou Maru was war-mly wel
comed by the Filipinos, who consider
the Japanese to be a kindred race and
hoped for assistance from them.
The Filipinos were prepared to pay
for arms and ammunition and said
the Japanese vessels visiting the is

VioriK Man on Trial for II U I.lfe Tali.
nLOOMINGTON, Neb.. June 30.
W. S. Colo took the utand yesterday
on his own behalf, saying that on the
morning of December 2 he wont to see
George OesKford, who lives eight
miles northeast of here, to rent a farm
from him and came back about noon,
passing by J. M. Barber's house, talk
ing to Barber a few minutes. Gess
ford and Burlier testified, corroborat
ing Colo's testimony. Cole then said
ho came on to Bloomiugton, passing
in front of Walder's livery barn and
was seen by C Carlisle. He reached
Too man's house at 3 o'clock. Carlisle
also corroborated this. Cole then said
he chopped some wood until about 4
o'clock, when ho wont to a neighbor's
by the name of Taylor, half a mile
west, to see a man by tho name of
Stratton. whom wanted to get to husk
his corn near tho Kreiohbaum place.
Ho talked with Taylo, and Stratton
for a few minutes and then went buck
to Tooman's nouso. About !" o'clock
while doing his chores Elinor Mo No is
came by, who was on tho road to
church, to see Tooman and ho talked
to McNeis a short time. McNeis then
joined liis wife a short distance away
and they went on to church. Taylor,
Stratton and Mr. and Mrs. McNeis
corroborated this testimony.
During tlio night Tooman's baby
took sick and Mrs. Tooman and
daughter Grace brought it down stairs,
where Cole and Tooman's son Roy
wore sleeping. Mrs. Tooman woke
Roy up and sent him for medicine.
She was doctoring the baby for three
hours, but Colo said lie did not get up
or say a word to anybody. The prose
cuting attorney got him very badly
tangled up on this during cross-examination.
Cole said when i ooman came
home from Kreichbaum's Saturday
morning, December 3, ho told him that
Kreiohbaum had left and walked to
Riverton. Monday, December 5, while
Tooman was eating breakfast, he re
marked that if ho was going to make
a bargain with Kreiohbaum he must
go and see him that day.
While Cole was giving his direct
testimony ho said that when J. G
Smith, ex-sheriff of this county, came
up to see what he knew about Kreioh
baum being missing, he told every
thing he knew. When Attorney Adams
commenced shooting tho cross-examination
at Colo, he could not say 'why
ho did not tell him what Tooman had
told him about Kreiohbaum going to
Riverton, so they could trace him. He
also said Tooman told him he had
bought forty hogs. Colo sold and help
ed haul ninety, but did not think it
was necessaiy to toll Smith this. Cole
was asked if ho did not think it look
ed strange for Tooman to buy all of
this stuff while ho admitted that Too
man was in debt to him and mnnv
others, but his answer was he did not
know. This was the answer to many
of ho questions on the cross-examination.
Wyoming Crop Conditions.
(MTEYENNE. Wyo., Juno 30. The
report of the Wyoming section of the
clii.-.ato and crop service for Wyoming
for the week ending today is as fol-lr."-s:
Tho week was showery over most of
the- date and generally favorable fiv
crops. Tho nights of the ?l?t rr 1 "d
wore quite cold and light to heavy
frosts are reported from .-viban
west ,v ard to I'inta county on the 22d,
altl.o-gh but little damage was done.
R. "-.'-os continue in excellent conditio!-
in nearly every sect-ion of the
staf Grain is improving rapidly.
Gardens are very backward, and many
were injured by the frosts of the pre
vious week. The harvest of alfalfa
has begun in the eastern counties and
will bo quite general this week. The
crop is somewhat backward, although
but little if any later than last season.
Two crops were harvested .over the
entire state last year, and three crops
over the southern portion. The warm
weather of the last few weeks has
caused high water in the streams of
the state, and in southern Albany and
Carbon counties and in Uinta and
Sweetwater counties the streams are
higher than for many years.
filiform of Naval Officers.
WASHINGTON, .Time 30 The new
regulations prescribing the uniforms
of naval officers have been issued. Few
material changes are made in the ex
isting dress, but for the first time in
many years provision has had to be
made for distinguishing the admiral
from other flag officers, and while Ad
miral Dewey's modesty will not be
shocked by a revival of the gorgeous
raiment of the officer of that grade,
he will be conspicuous enough to sat
isfy most of his admirers.
He will not need to make any alter
ations in the eight costumes he must
wear on various occasions, but his
epaulets, sleeve ornaments, collar de
vices and cocked hat will have to be
especially manufactured before he
passes Gibralter, for the regulations,
which were approved May 8, go into
effect practically as soon as they are
received by officers and the copies
have been mailed.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 30. The
crowning event of Harvard's com
mencement was the alumni dinner,
which took place in Memoiial hall aft
er the graduation exercises yesterday.
Tho guests included President Eliot,
Ambassador Jules Camhou, Alexander
Agassiz, General Leonard Wood, Gov
ernor Roger WoKott and Admiral
Sampson. President Eliot opened the
speochmuking by report iiig gifts of
$l,2."O,(;00 to the college during tho
year. Governor Wolcott followed i;j
a brief address and Ambassador Cuh.
bon was introduced.
The French ambassador, M. Cam bo n...
spoke in French and took occasion to
refer to the part he had taken in re
storing peace between the United
States and Spain and to thank Har
vard for conferring on uim the degree
of BE. D. He said:
I feel unable to express to you how
deeply I n.uprociate the honor I';:i ard
university has done me by con ft- .ring
upon me the dignity of doctor of laws.
I am proud to belong hereafter to
your university, the oldest in America,
and I am touched when I realize that
tho thought which prompted the be
stowal of this "honor upon mo possibly
had in view a higher aim than any per
sonal to me. I cannot forget that a
very long time ago one ot my prede
cessors, the Marquis de la Luzerne who
in 1781 represented in this cou.itry
King Louis XVI., was also made by
Harvard an honorary doctor of laws.
At that time the United States had
hardly emerged from the heroic stiug
gle which insured hor independence.
France h id then lent you hor assist
ance, and your university inscribed
the name of her representative among
those of your honored ones. That was
over a century ago.
Last year Providence designated
France to take the hand of your ad
versary of yesterday, to place it into
yours and to clasp both in hor own.
I was the chosen instrument of the
humanitarian idea which inspired this
act. By these feelings clone was I
guided. Allow me to thank you for
tho personal honor you have shown
me. as yen did in cany days to the
Marquis de la Luzerne, because you
hereby testify once more to the tradi
tional friendship of our two nations.
As for myself, whose profession
brings me in daily contact with the
realities of public life, it is a rr.re good
fortune to find myself in this atmos
phere cf learning and culture. I am
a son cf the University of Paris, a son
of that glorious seat of learning, the
Sarbonne. There it was that Dante,
in the middle ages, leaving Florence,
came to pursue his studien. In those
days no frontiers circumscribed the
domain of art and science. Any may
we net hope that my presence at this
distinguished gathering suggests that
there continues to exist the same un
trammeled spirit which makes the
world of art and letters something
more than the heritage of any one

GERM DISEASE TREATMENT.
Ir. Oscar Loen- Thinks He Has Discover
ed a New Principle.
WASHINGTON, June 30. Dr. Lowe,
one of the expert vegetable patholog
ists of the agricultural department,
has developed what he believes is a
point of practical use, a new treat
ment for germ diseases, which prom
ises to supersede the serum treatment
now in use in diphtheria, fevers and
many other diseases. The treatment
is similar in some respects to the se
rum, but depends on a different prin
ciple, the basis idea being the presence
of a class of ferments known as enzy
mes, which are produced by the same
bacteria that produce the disease.
Dr. Lowe and his colleague, Dr.
Emmerich, have studied and cultivat
ed the enzymes of various diseases,
and it is claimed that the enzymes
of certain bacteria will kill not only
their parent germs, but also the germs
of cholera, typhoid fever, anthraz,
diphtheria, black plague, staphloccoc
ci and probably monoccocci. An enzy
mes that will be fatal to tuberculosis
is being sought, though the bacillus of
tuberculosis seems to be incapable of
producing an enzymes that is fatal to
itself. This is also true of the black
The enzymes are very unstable prod
ucts and for this reason quickly de
teriorate, but Dr. Lowe believes he has
found-a method of preserving them in
shape for use.

CINCINNATI, Juno 30. The post
ponement of tlio opening of tho golden
Jubilee saengorfost of the North Amer
ican Saengerbund from last night until
tonight caused much disappointment,
but it has not detracted from the in
terest in the great musical event. Al
though there are still seme skeptics,,
yet there is no longer any reasonable
doubt about the great hall being ready
for tonight and for the great concerts
on Friday and Saturday afternoons and
evenings. The moving of the pro
grams along, each twenty-four hours
later than originally announced, will
cause the great Volksfest at the Zoo
logical Gardens to bo held on Sunday
instead of Saturday.
The local committee did not begin
to construct tho big hall till all the
money was secured, and afterward it
was compelled to make such changes
as to have it cost over $70,000 instead
of $10,000, as estimated. There was
also a strike of the carpenters. But
the local committee depended on the
architect and contractor keeping their
promises. The supervising architect
was prostrated in his efforts and the
contractor had had his troubles, but
the chorus of hammers will now give
way to that of an orchestra of 1M0
pieces, with a mass chorus of -l,00u,
and the noted soloists. There were
additional arrivals this morning, with
usual ceremonies, the same as yester
day. The usual r"harsa!s continue
through the remaining days so that
the singers are kept quite bu.y from
morning till night, and there is very
much in the line of jubil.-j while the
crowds are waiting o;i tiie carpenters.
While the visitor.-; did the marching
yesterday they wore the spectators
today for a novel street parade gotten
up by tho press committee, assisted by
oitize--s. This parade was a burlesque
on s-:tct pageants and was enjoyed
mor;-) than any otlur demonstration
of the week. Tho police and fire de-'
partnients assisted in tho burlesque of
the usual parts they take in such
demonstrations. Joseph A. Miller,
publisher of the Ohio Record, the
organ of tho Ohio brewers, and chair
man of the press committee on enter
tainment, was grand marshall, with a
large staff in caricature, repres-onting
leading citizens, imludnig the gov
ernor, mayor, senators, presidents of
railroads, banks and others. Follow
ing tho burlesque parade there were
various joint meetings of musical so
cieties. Much interest centers in the election
of officers tomorrow- There is a very
lively contest between Buffalo, Chi
cago, St. Louis, Milwaukee and other
cities for the meeting of the North
American Saengerbund three years
hence, with Buffalo so far as favorite.

BUFFALO. June 30 The national
social and political conference resumed
its session today to discuss non-partisan
efforts in political reform. The
subji-ct is divided into eight sub
divisions "Expansion and Militar
ism." "Permanent Internal Tribunal,"
"Prcportional Representation," "Re
c:i!l or Imperative Mandate," "Single
Tax," "Non-partisan Temperance," and
"Organized Labor." Each speaker was
limited to ten minuter., with twenty
minutes for discussion under the three
minute rule. Rev. II. W. Thomas of
Chioaio piesided and discussed "Ex
pansie .i and Militarism." Mr. Thomas
was one of the first to espouse the
cause cf the Cubans. In speaking of
the war in the Philippines, he declared
it the saddest thing in the history of
the United States. As militarism tends
to despotism, he opposed it, believing
that industrialism means democracy
and the preservation of the liberties
of the people. During Dr. Thomas'
remarks not a syllable of applause
greeted Admiral Dewey's name. Wil
liam J. Ghent of New York took the
opposite side of the question and de
clared that popular sympathy was with

ABILENE, Kan., June SO. Heavy
rains have prevented harvesting this
week and many fields partly cut are
standing untouched awaiting dry
weathei. A soaking rain came last
night and it wlli be several days be
fore work can go on in the bottom
land fields. The growth of the weeds
is causing much uneasiness. Weeds
are above the wheat in many fields
and are growing so fast that it is diffi
cult for the binders to operate. The
wheat Is becoming very ripe and
chinchbugs are doing damage that
makes it advisable to get to work at
once. Oats 'and corn are also getting
weedy, but the latter is growing very
fast and farmers look for a fine crop.

has been besieged with telegrams and

that the act was one of the most vi

"This is definite, for it moans that j

cattle who are using the public domain
for grazing purposes may benefit from
the reservoirs so erected, whether they
have entered upon the lands or not.
I have heard from many of the west

being made under the act. and I for
one want to see tho public domain
reserved for the public and not for
tho use of any single individual except
where the law distinctly provides as
to the manner by which such acquisi

The Indian office has commenced ne
gotiations for the purchase of a private
school on the Santee agency m Ne

government as the Indian school at an
annual rental of $200. Bishop Hare
of South Dakota has authority to sell
the school building and it is believed
satisfactory terms can be agreed upon.
There are at present sixty pupils at
tending school at that point.
Plans have been completed at the In
dian officers for several new buildings
at the Winnebago (Neb.) agency. The
plans provide for a girl's dormitory,
school building, laundry, warehouse
anel a sewer and water system. It is
understood that they are to be locateel
on the site of the buildings which were
destroyed by fire some time ago. The
buihling now standing will probably
be'used as a boys' dormitory. The In

work completed by the beginning of
the next school year.
Deafness Cannot be Cured

way to cure deafness, ana that is by constitutional

rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed deafness is the resuit, and
