1'rlce-CuttiiiK lias ICeen AIiilon-I.
Wasiiinotox. Nov. 17. The Indus
trial commission ha received from
Andrew Carnegie a promise to appear
before that body in December and give
testimony on the subject of trusts.
His will be the last taken upon this
subject preparatory to the preliminary j
report wnicn will ne maue 10 congress
early in January.
John Wanamaker is expected to
testify before tho commission next
w3ek upon tho question of combina
tion 6tores.
Samuel M. Illce, president of the
Distiilins; Company of America, com
monly designated as tho Whiskv trust,
was before the commission toJay. He
said that hisompany controlled about
90 per cent of the spirits distilled in j
the United States, but that tho com
pany had abandoned tho policy of cut
ting prices.
There was no intention of driving
competitors out of tho business, he said,
the iutention being to sell at a f;iir and
Kure prolit. letting others do as they
might please in fixing prices.
Mr. Hice gave the details of the or
ganization of the trust, t-aying it was
formed from the Distilling and Cattle
Feeders' association, tho American
Spirits Manufacturing company, the
Standard Distilling and Distributing
company, all of which were controlled
by tho pr incipal company by tho own
ership of stock. It had merely be
come a clearing house for the other
companies. All the stockholders of
these several concern-, with the excep
tion of a very small minority, had
entered into the combination with zeal.
The parent comp iny also owns a rye
whieky distillery at Minneapolis and
the Hannis distillery.
The trust controls about 90 percent
age of the brands of Kentucky whisky.
Of the capital 9tock of the company
thero had been issued $31,2.10.000 in
preferred stock and $10,2."0,00 in com
mon. He said ho could not say what
amount had been paid to tho organizer
of the trust, but it was a very delicate
and important undertaking he thought
and he should luive been well paid.
He was unablo to stale what had been
paid for tho Hannis rye distillery, but
ho considered it worth not less than
$5,000,000. The company had made no
public statement of its earnings, but
its books, Mr. Ilice said, were always
opon to tho inspection of the stock
holders of tho company.
Mr. Kice contended that the effect
of the consolidation was to cheapen
the cost, of production and also to
lessen the price to the consumers.
A change of the revenue laws go as
to permit the transportation of alcohol
in tank cars was advocated by Mr.
Rice. With this change ho thought
the United States could supply the
world with alcohol. He also thought
that tho whisKy tax should bo lower.

Corporal Faire and a private soldier,
both of the Tenth United States in

gan, a deserter from the Thirty-ninth

6 o'clock last evening at Li Piatte.
At 3 o'clock in - the afternoon two
prisoners, Privates Morgan and Dea
con, overcame their sentry and es
caped from the guard house at Fort
Crook. Morgan had been confined in
the guard houso since September, al
though no charges have yet been for
mally filed in his case, and no douot
found prison discipline irksome..
Guard details armed with rifles and
ball cartridges and the stern com
mands that go with military law, were
at once sent out to scour the surround
ing country and towns in search of the
fleeing men.
It was just growing dusk as a
s'rangor walked wearily into La
Platte, and accosting a citizen, in
quired the way to Plattsmouth. Hav
ing gained his information he passed
on, and a little farther came upon two
soldiers of the Tenth infuntry, armed
and standing in watchful pose near
John O'Leary'a store.
As the stranger passed, looking
neither to the right nor left, one sol
dier attracted the attention of tho
other and said:
"I think that is him."
Instantly the corporal shouted,
The command was unheeded, and
again "Halt" was repeated.
The pedestrain looked b ick and said,
'What do you want?" but started to
run as tho sharp, torse, "Halt," again
rang out.
Crack, crack, spoke two Kr&g-Jor-gensens,
almost in unison, and Ihe fu
gitive fell across. the road. The horri
tied bystanders ran to the wounded
man, who cried piteously, "Save me;
get a doctor," and, fainting, died in a
few minutes and before medical assist
ance arrived.
Both men were awaiting trial by
general court martial for the most
serious offeuso known to military law.

The following item from the Lead
(S. D. ) Tribune is an indication of the
metal of which the frontier ladies are
"Mrs. Tileoo.wife of William Tilson,
tho ranchman who lives out toward
Dumont, had a bit of frontier exper
ience the first of the week that is
worth repeating. She was at home
alone, when the barking of the dog
attracted her attention, and looking
out she noticed a wounded deer close
to the blacksmith shop. She set the
dog after the animal and it caught
the deer by the nose and 5n the scuflle
that ensued the deer got into the
blacksmith shop, the wide door having
been left open. Mrs. Tilson hastily
closed the door, went to the house and
securing a sharp butcher knife she
returned to the shop nnd soon dis
patched tho animal like an old hunts
man. When Mr. Tilson returned in
the evening he could scarcely believe
the story until ho had been shown the
deer, which was a fine large one."

American Shoes la Germany.
Twenty years ago American shoes
were unknown in Germany. Indeed, at
that time our shoes were not regarded
as superior to those o German manu
facture, but the many improvements
which have been made in machinery,
together with the careful study which
our manufacturers have made of style
end comfort, have placed our shoes in
the front rank. An American can al
most always be distinguished In a
crowd by his shoes. In 1880 the value
of shoes imported into Germany from
the United States amounted to $1.6C6;
in 1890, to $9,044; In 1896 it was $39,-
