According to the figures compiled by
him, the receipts for the year 1894 show
the lowest amount per capita for the
entire period, being only $4,455. The
highest figures were reached in 1882.
when the amount was $7,864. The ex
penditures per capita, on the other
hand, reached a high figure last year,
viz., $5,346, the largest amount for any
year with the exception of 1891 and
1S93, the latter year furnishing the
larger amount, namely, $5,659. The
low-water mark was reached in 1886,
when the expenditures were $4,210 per
capita. The expenditures on account
' of pensions reached the highest amount
per capita in 1893, but with the excep
tion of that year, the year 1894 fur
nished the highest amount per capita

Hermer Get the Penitentiary Contract.
The board of public lands and build
ings met yesterday, says the Lincoln
Journal, and decided to award the pen
tentiary contract to Warden Beemer.
Buckstaff Bros, of this city presented
seven different propositions in their bid
and Mr. Beemer presented one, which
the board accepted as the best. In
brief, Mr. Beemer agrees to core for
convicts at 40 cents per capita, the state
to furnish him all penitentiary prop
erty and keep the same in repair, he in
return to account for all money re
ceived and paid out, and to refund to
the state all moneys coming into his
hands, less $3,000. . He is to pay his own
bookkeeper out of the 83,000.
This proposition is construed by some
to mean that the board will be in con
trol of the penitentiary contract and
conduct it for the benefit of the state,
Mr. Beemer retaining as his share a fair
salary. - Those who have investigated
the proposition find no fault with it.
If the contract is worth what the ap
praisers say it is under Mr. Beemers
bid, the state will get the benefit of all
profits. Mr. Beemer is considered one
of the best managers who ever occupied
the position of warden, and it is gen
erally believed that under his bid the
state has a good show of getting every
cent that can possibly be made off con

Attempted Suicide of a Xebraskan.
Buffalo N. Y.) dispatch: R. T. Allen
of Omaha, Neb., shot and badly
wounded himself on a New York Cen
tral train a few miles from Buffalo.
Allen was traveling with his wife.
They had been to New Jersey and were
returning to Nebraska. Leaving his
wife for a moment Allen went to the
toilet room at the rear of the car, and a
moment later the passengers were
startled by a pistol shot. Several men
rushed to the snot and found Allen
lving in a pool of blood, which oozed
from a bullet wound in his left side.
He was cared for as well as could be
on the cars, and when the train reach
ed Buffalo was taken to the Emergency
hospital. The doctors found that the
bullet had just touched the apex of
the heart. The aim was well directed,
and bad not the bullet struck some
hard substance in his clothing and
glanced off he would have been killed.
It is thought he will recover. Later
While in the hospital Allen succeeded
in getting hold of a bottle of carbolic
acid, swallowing a large dose, with
fatal effects. His last words were:

The licet Sugar Crop.
Correspondence Omaha Bee: Tht
Oxnard Beet Sugar company of Grand
Island will this year, beyond any ques
tion of doubt, make the largest run in
the history of the beet sugar industry
W. H. Baird has been at work an
alyzing beets. He stated that the beets
for their present condition as to matur
ity are showing up splendidly, most of
them averaging from 10 to 14 per cent.
The late rains, while not injuring the
crop, have retarded its development.
And in view of this fact the company
has decided to give an additional price
per ton to those contractors who will
make later deliveries. For November
deliveries the company will pay 23
cents extra per ton; for December beets
30 cents; for January beets 35 cents;
for February beets 40 cents per ton.
When asked what, in his opinion,
would the crop for this factory be,
Ferrar stated that they figured on no
less than 35,000 tons. I his. he said,
was the lowest possible estimate. The
factory had about 4,000 acres contracted
at the beginning of the season. Sup
posing 500 acres in the different coun
ties had failed, there still would be
3,500 acres in good condition, and these
will certainly average more than ten
tons to the acre. A few farmers who
have taken good care of their beets ex
pect to harvest twenty-five tons to the
acre. The Grand Island factory ex

That Sham Battle.
In regard to the statement that Gov
ernor Holcomb issued an order prohib
iting guards from taking part in a pro
posed sham battle with the Grand
Army men. Adjutant General Barry
said the governor was not consulted.
He and Major Fechet alone were re
sponsible. He stated that the G. A. R.
reunion committee advertised a sham
battle without any authority. The
committee first went so far as to get
out a program for the national guards,
but the chairman of that committee
kindly withdrew the programs from
circulation when so requested by the
militia authorities. The adjutant gen
eral states that a sham battle was op
posed from the Start by Major Fechet
and himself for various reasons, one
being the liability to accident as proven
by past experience.

The democrats of Xebraska, in con
vention assembled, congratulate the
country upon the sure signs of return
ing prosperity. In spite of the evil
predictions alike of protectionists and
silver inflationists, the country is stead
ily and surely gaining ground, thus
justifying the wisdom of the reversal
of the republican policies of protective
tariff taxes and coinage of a redundant
quantity of token-dollars. The fact
that the wheels of industry, so long
silenced as a consequence of these poli
cies by a long and depressing panic,
have resumed their wonted motion and
that more than 300.000 laoorers are re
ceiving an increase of wages of 1- per
cent proves this assertion.
We send greeting and congratula
tions to Grover Cleveland and his cab
inet, not only for their wise and pru
dent course which has aided so much
in bringing about the better financial
condition, but also for their firm and
fearless adherence throughout the long
depression to sound principles of econ
omies; for their just conception of the
rights of the whole people, and for
their unswerving fidelity in upholding
and protecting the honor and integrity
of the nation against organized mob
A GOLD STAND AND.
We indorse the national democratic
platform of 1S92 and the interpretation
placed thereon by the president, and
we declare ourselves unequivocally and
unreservedly for that metallic money
as the standard unit, the bullion and
mint value of which are approximate
the same, the purchasing power of
which, regardless of government mint
age, is the least fluctuating in all the
markets of the civilized world. We
insist upon this policy as especially
necessary for the protection of the
farmers, laborers and property owning
debtors the most defenseless victims
of unstable money and fluctuating cur
rency. Free coinage of silver, 1G to 1, means
silver monometallism; it means poorer
money and less of it; it means less
wages for the laboring man and less
actual money for the farmer and very
much less credit, as well as money for
the business man. It means bank
ruptcy for all, save the mine owner.
ONLY ONK M KNACK.
We recognize in the issue and reissue
of our treasury notes a serious menace
to the stability of the national finances
and we favor the retirement of all
treasury notes at the earliest possible
moment with proper and safe guaran
tees for maintaining the necessary vol
ume of the currency which shall be de

The constitution of this state pro
vides that no religious test shall be

citizens on account of their religious
beliefs or affiliations.

FRAKER'S EARLY LIFE.
.4. California Physician Recall Uncred
Itable Things lie Had Done.
Los Angei.ks, Cal., Sept. 'J. Dr. W.
O. McLeod, a well known physician of
this city, knows some chapters of
Swindler Fraker's life that have not
appeared in print. He said to-day
"Fraker always was a shrewd, mean
fellow. I knew him when he was a
young man. He began to practice
without a diploma at Triplett, Mo.
This was law breaking, but fie was
never arrested for it. Before long he
turned druggist. His store was really an
unlicensed liquor shop. He was arrested
for this offense and his business was
broken up. He married and moved to
Excelsior Springs, a watering place
seventy miles away. His wife was a
good, respectable girl. Two j'ears
later she was home on a visit when
her clothes and all her little belong
ings unexpectedly made their appear
ance, and with them a message from
Fraker that she need never comeback.
He declared that she was too jealous
and that he was done with her. His
wife loved him very much and she
wanted a reconciliation. At
gave it up and applied for a
and some time after married
"Fraker seemed to get into all sorts
of little scrapes. He would do some
mean thing and sink low in everyone's
estimation, but always managed to get
back into the' town's good graces
again. He did get a medical diploma
at last I believe he never married
again. His father and mother died
when he was a little boy and he was
brought up by an - uncle, but was
thrown on his own resources early in
life and drifted by slow degrees from
little things to worse ones."
Fraker to Resume Practice.
Excklsior Springs, Mo., Sept. 9.
Dr. Fraker has announced that he will
return here as soon as he gets out on
bail and resume his practice. He has
made application for his old office
rooms, the ones he occupied when he
left. Already there is a reaction and
some of Fraker's admirers are falling
away from their idolatry of him.
They honestly believed him dead and
followed him with respect until his re
turn, but they are unwilling to gr any
further with him. Dr. Fraker has en
