Plans to Conquer the Filipinos Are
Effected With a View of
Closing the War.
Washington, Aug. 1:0. The inup
f the Philippines and oriecially of
that portion of the Island of Luzon
north and south of Manila, which haa
boon prepared for the uao of Secretary
Hoot, may asaunio a more important
part in the coming campaign than had
bnon given it heretofore. Secretary
Koot hiis not only ascertained where
the United Stated troopn are located
and has them nicely marked olT on
the map, but ho has also taken into
consideration such information as can
bo obtained relative to the population
of the adjacent country, the kind of
people and their disposition toward
tho United States. Tbe secretary has
also been studying the lines of trans
portation und learning what ho can of
tho geography of the country.
Jt is believed that more than one
army can operate to advantage in the
l'hilippiin-8 and tho suggestion has
been made by some army officers that
an army should start from different
points and operate in such a manner
as to diotraet and destroy the Fili
pino forces. At proscnt the United
States forces do not occupy the lino of
railway half way to Lingayen, on the
gulf of the same name.
It has been suggested that if one
force were to start from Lingayen and
move soutb at tho same time that an
other were moving north there would
hi a v- ry great probability of soon se
curing the entire railway for the use
of tho army aod tho insurgents would
be separated into divisions east and
west by the railroad, as they are now
divided into northern and southern
bands. Between Angeles and Lin
gayon is Tarlac, a town of consider
able size and situated in a province
where the natives are said to be not
uufriendly to tho United States. If
this province could bo occupied it
ini;tit te of great advantage to the
While these are merely sugges
tions, it ma j' ho that when tho army
in the Philippines consists of 60,000
men, ir.stead of about 20,000 or 25,000,
it wiil be possible to have four or
more armies operating instead of two,
as durinir the lust campaiga.
Tho locations of troops, as marked
by pins on the map prepared for Sec
retary Koot, show the places as fol

The following account of a deplor
able accident to a boy . at Weeping
Water it taken from the State Jour
nal: William Craeier, a boy about six
teen years old, and son of Thomas
Crasier, section foreman on the Mis
souri Pacific railroad hero, met with a
very painful accident yesterday about
4 o'clock p. m. He was practicing
with an old shotgun, and it burst.driv
ingapieceof the end of the barrel,
two and three quarters inches long,
and one and one-half inches wide,
through his left arm below the elbow,
entering on the inside of the arm and
sticking out through the skin on the
outside. This was taken out by Dr.
Butler, and also a smaller piece out of
tho elbow. The arm is badly mangled,
but no bones are broken, and he rested
very well lan night, but the wound is
a terrible one, being made by that
ragged chunk of iron."

IIastinos, Neb., Aug. '20. Word
comes to Hastings that Miss Viola

Ol'O bond charged with having at
tempted to take the life of Mrs. Charles
F. Morey by sending her a box of
poisoned candy on the tenth day of
las-t April, is now in an insane asylum
at Jacksonville, III.
Aoout two months ago Miss llor
locker went to New York City to visit
her sister and recuperate, but it was
generally thought at that time that
she would not return to Hastings to
attend the continuation cf her hearing
which was to come up in the equity
term of the district court September
25, after which she was to have been
bound over to the jury term of the
district court in December. It is the
general feeling here that Miss Hor

this celeb?ated ca?e will thus be
brought to a close.

"The reunion of the Eccietj of the
Survivors of the Bawl of C.ivite at
Madison Square gaitic'.i last evening
was a most successful occasion from
both a social and financial point of
view. Over 7,000 members were in at
tendance, nearly four-fifths of the en
tire membership, and the accomoda
tions of the hall were strained to the
utmost. After the banquet addresses
were made by a number of the promi
nent members, and letters of regret
were read from the president and the
governors of New York. Pennsylvania,
Porto Rico and Cuba. Among those
who addressed the meeting were Rev.
George Dewey Fltzgibbons, Dewey Ma
nila Brown, Cavite G. Jones, Governor
Philliplne Olympia Green and Vice
President Raleigh Concord Tubb. After
the banquet was over dancing was in
dulged in until a late hour." "The
Patriotic Order of the Sons of Cuban
Liberty gave an entertainment in their
hall at 1647 .Bowery last evening, the
receipts of which are to go toward
building a monument to' the memory
of the Cubans who lost their lives in
the late war. A fair attendance was
present and the musical numbers were
rendered by Mrs. Santiago Cortez
Coogan, Clenfuegos Murphy, Amphit
rlte Cook and Matanzas Johnson. Mr.
Habana O'Donoghue made quite a hit
with his recitation of 'When Gomez
Marched to Dinner.' Quite a neat lit
tle sum wes realized." "From Simp
son, Ky., comes a dispatch which says
that John K. Littlejohn, a gunner's
mate on the Nashville in the late war
with Spain, who claims to have fired
the first hostile shot of the war, died
in that town on Wednesday. We have
no wish to doubt the veracity of the
Sampson Bugle, but at the same time;
Mr. Littlejohn is the twenty-third man
to die since the war was ended claim
ing the honor of having fired the first
hostile shot. Isn't this rather overdo
ing It?" "Schley J. O'Brien. 28 years
of age, was picked up by Officer Good
on Bleeker street last night in an in
toxicated condition. Before Judge
Cooley this morning O'Brien claimed
that his condition was the result of
discussing the war with Spain in the
Maine saloon yesterday evening with
two old cronies, Bill Dewey Naugh
ton and " Bagley Terror O'Rourke.
Judge Cooley declared that in view of
the circumstances the prisoner was
lucky to offend by a mere plain drunk,
and Mr. O'Brien was released." "A
youth giving his name as Augustus
Cuba Libre LIghtfoot was arrested
yesterday while acting in a suspicious
manner on Broadway. Lightfoot 13
thought to be an alias of Hot Shot
Smith, a noted sneak thief, who has of
late been operating successfully in the
neighborhood of Fifth avenue and
Thirty-eighth street. The prisoner
claims to have been the first child born
on Cuban soil of American parents
after the capitulation of Havana. He
is still In custody."
Chadkom, Neb., Aug. 21. Thomas
Ryan, a prominent cattleman, wa9
shot and instantly Killed by Frank
Coil, a young sheepman, fifteen miles
southeast of this city early this morn
This disastrous affair is tho direc
result of a feud that has always ex
isted between the cattlemen, who claim
priority of right on pasturage lands
and the sheepmon, who have insisted
that they were equally entitled to tho
general uso of the land for the graz
ing of their sheep.
From reports coming in from tho
scene of the murder, it is learned that
Hyan was the aggressor and insisted
that young Coil, who is but twenty
one years old, should move his 6heep
from whore they wore then grazing
This Coil refused to do. Hot words
were exchanged, when suddenly, with
out a word of warning, young Coil
whipped out a revolver and, taking
deliberate aim, shot Ityan, killing him
almost instantly. Friends of Hyan
soon notified the coroner, but up to a
late hour he had not returned from
the scene of the tragedy.
Coil immediately came to this city
ana crave nimseii up. When ques
tioned he seemed greatly excited and
nothing authentic could be learned
from him. The cold-blooded murder
of Eckman, who was shot down by
cattlemen several months ago, is btill
fresh in the minds of every one. In
view of the intense feeling prevailing
between the two factions, the outcome
of the murder of Ryan will be watched
with unusual interest.
The prediction is made that more
blood is likeiy to flow, unless some
more definite agreement can be 3atis
factorily agreed on to govern the
rights of tbe cattle and sheepmen,
who are constantly warring with each
other over pasturage lands.
Dreyfus' Counsel Is Su tliclen tly Recov

order not to disturb the wound. He
met General Mercier and General Bil

stopped, chatted and smiled. Labori
looKcd very well. He was given a
cushioned arm chair.
Mme. Labori, looking well, was also
in court. Labori was warmly con
gratulated by friends. Captain Drey

with Labori.
Colonel Jouaust addressed a few
words of congraulation to Labori and
expressed the profound indignation of
the tribunal at the attempt to assassin
ate the counsel. Labori was much
moved and thanked Co'onel Jouaust

Indians on the Rampage.
San Francisco, Aug. 21. A special
from Winslow, Ariz., says: Two hun

five miles east of here, are threaten
ing to exterminate all the whites in
that section. They were paid off on
tho 15th and proceeded to gamble and
drink heavily. A gambler named C.
H. Landreth, after a quarrel with
some of them, assaulted one, shooting
and stabbing him serious'. The
tribe armed themselves with all the
weapons in the camp, shot the gam
bler seven times, scalped him and
mutilated his body beyond recogni
tion. Troops from Fort . Wingate have
been ordered to the scene and serious
trouble Is feared.

Old Josh Parkens Knocked Reynard Over
with Ills Uuu.
When the awtll riding club from th
city went away up into Ualoon town
ship to rid to hounds, and incidentally
follow the course of the fox, it arranged
with old Josh Parkens to provide the
fox, says the Detroit Free Press. lie
was offered liberal pay for attending
to this preliminary, but he declared
that he was something of a fox chaser
himself, and would call it square 'f
they'd let him "jine" in the sport.
Thera was no good reason to offer for
barring him, and the committee satis
fied its conscience by tellipg him to bo
on hand half an hour later than the
time really fixed for making the cross
country dash. Sure enough, the hounds
were giving tongue, and the ladies and
gentlemen in their gay attire were just
beginning to form a procession which
grows from the bunch In which they
start, when old Josh burst with a
whoop from a thicket on the side. He
was on a rawboned mount that had a
wonderful gift of shuffling over the
ground, and he carried a six-foot rifle
of the olden times. He went after the
fox at an angle that compelled it to
cover about two rods to his one. and
before the risers could prevent he had
ended the eport by putting an ounce
of lead through the game. There were
some vigorous protests against this
mode of fox hunting, which put a stop
to the fun Just as It commenced, but
John only said: "What was them city
swells huntln' a fox fur if it warn't to
