The sub committee of the permanent school fund investigation committee has al o it concluded its examination of the securities in the state fund, and will report to the full committee to morrow that 815,900 of the bonds are absolutely worthless, viz: Rice county, 10,003; Norton county, 82,500; Howard county, 51,400; Comanche county, 2,000. These are school district bonds, issued back in the early 70s. All are fraudulent and some are for geries. The Rice county bonds are known as the "Sam Wood lot." In addition to the 15,900, the sub committee will list a lot of other bonds as doubtful and some as prac tically worthless because the com munities responsible for them are too poor to pay them.

NEW FAST TIME RECORD Mere Than m Mile a Mlnnte Between New York and Buffalo. New York, Sept. 13. The New York Central yesterday made a new world's record in the running of fas trains on a long distance schedule. At 5:40K, a special train of four cars, the entire train weighing 562,000 pounds, under the direction of George II. Dan iels, the general passenger agent of the road, left the Grand Central depot. It . arrived at Albany at 7:54:55, making the run of 143 m iles in 135Hnimutes. A stop of one minute was made at Albany for the purpose of changing engines.

He fin ished three lengths away from Cooper and Cabanne, who had both passed Gardiner in the stretch. A UNIT FOR M'KINLE Y. Ohio's Delegation Will Be Solid For the , Great Apostle of Protection. j Cincinnati, Ohio, Sept. 13. The political sensation of to-day is the comments made among politicians upon the pronounced utterance of Governor McKinley in favor of ex Governor Foraker for United States senator, and his urgent plea that special attention be given to the elec tion of the legislature. Those who are accustomed to reading between the lines maintain that the unexpected position of McKinley is a part of. a combination that is of national inter est, and that among other things, it means that Ohio will be a unit for McKinley for president. Fitzsimmons Wants In. Chicago, Sept. 13. The Inter Ocean prints a story in which it is said that Fitzsimmons declared that he will re fuse to meet Corbett in Dallas unless he is ''let in" on certain concessions on which be believes a large amount of money will be realized. It is said that he accuses Brady, Corbett, Joe Vendisr and Stewart of Dallas with gobbling up everything in sight, from the lemonade stand to the eidoloscope, with "which it is intended to reproduce the fight throughout the country. It is the latter eoncession that Bob is jealous of, and it is said that he has made a formal demand for a percent age of the profits on it, otherwise he declares there will be no fight.

Three Hundred Thousand People Witness the March The Host Led by Ex-Confederates Soot hern Soldiers Cheer Their Old Foes Enthusiastically Vet erans All Show ihe Weight of Tears How the Parade Was Formed. Ex-Soldiers Again In Line. Louisville, Ky., Sept. 12. Thous ands of ex-Confederates and hosts of other people gathered early this morn ing along the streets to witness the grand parade of the Grand Army of the Republic and cheers were constant as the divisions marched along to the streets where they were to form. The entire line of march was cleared of everything while the Louisville Le gion, the cadets and Kentucky Nation al Guard patrolled the ways and there was no delay. Forty thousand veter erans were in line and fully 300,000 people witnessed the march. The parade was headed by two ex Confederates on horseback, Captain John H. Weller and Captain William H. Harrison. They did not wear the gray, but were dressed in black Prince Alberts with silk hats and red, white and blue sashes, the same as members of the citizens' committee. They also wore red, white and blue scarfs and rosettes. Captain Weller carried a large United States flag and Captain Harrison a large white banner of peace. In place of the eagle on the top of the staff, the white banner had a dove carrying an live twig. The ve t-rans showed the weight of years a n.l the offee a of service. It was the general remark that there were never so many old, lame and fee ble men in line. 'ut l,izy marched proudly none the le-s. At .sunrise the only clouds were from the saiute of forty guns, and the weather even was for peac. The de partments began forming at an early hour under special orders to have the prowssion move promptly at 10:30 o'clock. At 0:30 another salute was fired for the first grand division to form. At 10 o'clock the guns indicated that the escort was moving to the head of the column and at 10:30 the salute signaled all the ten grand divisions to move. HOW THE PARAUK WAS FORMED. The divisions lined up as follows: Drum corps, Louisville Legion. Grand Army band of Canton, Ohio. Colonel Henry S. Cohn, chairman of committee on parade and review; Thomas Satterwhite, jr., and Captain C. E. Hordstron, adjutants; special citizens (red sash).

Among the features of the parade was old Ned, the warhorse, over 40 years old, that had heretofore tramped with the boys along the line of march. He is now so feeble that he to-daj' rode on a float. The New Hampshire department carried a large eagle. The Ohio boys wore buckeyes, the Ken tuckians lrad corn and crackers ana others bore the emblems of their states. When the Chicago commandery ap peared the multitudes on the plat forms and along the streets opened the chorus of cheers for Commander Lawler, and kept up the cheering as the posts of the different departments passed the stands and street intersec tions. Quite a number of veterans became exhausted and had to retire from the ranks. Six were so prostrated by the heat that they were taken in ambu lances to the hospital, but none are considered serious- prostrated. Will Kins: for Freedom. Chicago, Sept. 12. The Columbian liberty bell starts on its trip around the world on Friday morning at 8 o clock. It will first go to the Atlanta exposition to remain two months.

The rest of the jour ney has not yet been planned, but it is the intention to have the bell reach Mount Arrarat in 1000. and ring at a congress of representatives from every religious organization on earth. M'KINLEY ON THE ISSUES. The Ohio Governor for Sound Mor.ey and Against the Bond Syndicate. Springfield, Ohio Sept. 12. In his speech yesterday Governor McKinley, after criticising the foreign and do mestic policy of the Cleveland admin istration, the governor asserted that the real subject of contention in Ohio is the tariff. He quoted Cleveland as opposing Senator Brice as regards the Brice-Gorman act, and he also quoted the Cincinnati Enquirer as declaring that a veto by Cleveland would "be a cleaning up of much rubbish and un cleanliness in the Democratic house hold." Then he quoted the Ohio Dem ocratic platform of 1894, favoring fur ther reductions in the tariff, and asked: 4Is this 'rubbish and unclean liness in the Democratic household to stand, and that which was a year ago unworthy and impure and a stench in the Democratic nostrils now to be ac cepted as worthy and pure?" Has the Democratic party of Ohio changed its views since September, 1S94, and is now willing that the pro tective duties, which are retained in the Brice-Gorman-Wilson act, shall re main, and the law be a permanent set tlement of the tariff question? Is a law, using the language of Mr. Cleve land, 'which puts the wool of the farmer on the free list and the pro tection of tariff on the iron, ore and coal of corporations and capitalists' to receive the approval of the people of Ohio by their votes in November next? "My friends, there is one objection to the law, if there were no others, which must make its permanency im possible. It fails to raise the needed revenues for the daily expenses of the government. That would condemn it in the judgment of the American peo ple, whatever difference they might have on the question of protection and free trade. The law, from the date of its enactment to the present time and it is now a year old has not raised enough money from customs duties and internal revenue combined to meet the neeessary expenses of the govern ment.' Taking up the financial question he said: 4iIn the first two years under the fiscal policy of Mr. Cleveland's admin istration, which is so warmly com mended by the Springfield convention, the government has been compelled to borrow 8163,000,000, and the mainten ance of the gold reserve now depends upon a syndicate of foreign and home capitalists, who are under contract to preserve the credit of the nation until the 1st of October a syndicate un known to the laws and unrecognized in the government, hired to sustain the credit of the government. What a spectacle! 'On the subject of money, the Re publican party stands where it has always stood for good money, whether gold, silver or paper, all to be under national authority, at all times and everywhere to be equal and interchangeable, which will honestly measure the exchanges of the people and deceive and cheat nobody. It must be sound and strong as the gov ernment itself and as free from stain or taint as the flag of our country." THE BOND SYNDICATE. Secretary Carlisle's Annual Report Ex pected to Contain Facts Regarding It. Washington, D. C, Sept. 12. One of the features of Secretary Carlisle's re- I port to congress will probably be a full j statement of the operations of the i , 1 JI ? A A J 1 J 1 A I Donu syndicate, ii is unaersxoou mat it will contain several interesting facts in connection with the transaction which are as yet aly known to the parties immediately concerned in the negotion of the loan. The most im portant problem the secretary will have to deal with is that which looks to the re'.ief of the treas ary, involving a radical change in the financial system. The desired relief can only be obtained by the aid of congress, and the secretary realizes that it is going to be a very difficult task to suggest a remedy which will meet the approval of the Republican house, with Reed, a candidate for the presidency, in the speaker's chair. It probably will be the policy of the Re publicans to confuse, rather than un tangle, the financial complications during the next congress, for they are counting upon making considerable political capital out of the money ques tion in the presidential contest. AWARDED TO DEFENDER. The Valkyrie Ruled to Have Lost Be cause of the Foul. New York, Sept. 12. When the tug Walter Luckenbach, with the regatta committee of the New York Yacht club returned, S. Nicholson Kane, chairman of the committee, said that the protest on the alleged fouling of the Defender by the Valkyrie had been entertained and that the regatta committee had held a confenence in regard to the matter while the tug was on her way to the dock, but that no definite con clusion had been arrived at. This morning the committee held a long meeting in private and heard ev idence in regard to the collision and late this aftei noon sustained the De fender's protest and awarded the race to her. A Counter-Revolution. Colon, Sept. 12. The remnant of . the Ecudorean government is fleeing from Quito toward the boundary of Columbia, There, it is reported, agents of the late government are en listing men to take the field against j President Alfaro. The latter, fearing that a formidable reaction might be fomented by these agents, has dis patched an envoy to Colon to ask that measures be taken to prevent the or ganization of armed forces hostile to him in this republic. Prospects 11 right for Piatt. New York, Sept. 12. The Repub lican primaries were held last night m the 1,400 districts of the city to elect delegates to the assembly district con ventions.

IIats City, Kan., Sept. 12. In tne Cnarles Howard divorce case, after taking testimony, mutual friends in tervened and the suit was withdrawn and a reconciliation took place. LEGISLATION UPHELD OMAHA FIRE AND POLICE MAT TER DECIDED. The Supreme Court Reported to Have Held the Act of the Late Legislature Constitutional An Opinion by the En tire Court The Enactment Constitu tional and the Appointments Legal Final Outcome of a Matter that Men aced Trouble. The New Hoard lns. Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 1L The Jour nal gives publicity to the following: According to information secured by this paper the Omaha fire and police bill has been approved by the supreme court and the formal opinion will soon be rendered. There has been much guessing as to the opinion of the supreme court, now in preparation, and predictions of all kinds have been published from time to time. At first it was reported that Commissioner Irvine was writing the opinion in the famous case. Then the report was circulated broadcast that the court had decided in favor of the old board of police commissioners and against the constitutionality of the new law, and as a result of this report the wires between Omaha and Lincoln were kept hot with telegrams of in quiry. Incidentally the life of Com missioner Irvine at Omaha was made a burden. The Journal has information of a re liable character, to the effect that the court has decided the case in favor of the new board of fire and police com missioners. The opinion was expected the latter part of last week, but one of the judges sent to the state library for additional legal works to be used in preparing one part of the opinion, and therefore the handing down of the de cision was deferred. It is now expect ed any day, but may be withheld until the regular full session of the court which convenes September 17. Contrary to expectation, the opinion will not be written by any one member of the court commission. It will come as the opinion of the court, and not as the writing of any one man. Accord ing to information at hand, the three judges. Chief Justice Norval, Justice Post and Justiee Harrison, have been engaged in working on various points in the case, and in addition the com mission has been consulted by the court. The decision is not based on one turn ing point alone. It takes up the sev eral points at length and decides every material proposition that arises, or is likely to arise in the future, so that the litigants will not be left in the dark. The material points are the constitu tionality of the new fire and police law. and the legality of the appointment of the new fire and police board. The opinion sustains both the constitution ality of the law and the regularity of the appointments which were made by Attorney General Churchill and Land Commissioner Russell, the third mem ber of the appointing board refusing to participate in the meeting after having j had due notice. i This information, which leaked out yesterday, has caused considerable ex citement and wherever it is known is the one topic of conversation, but it was not generally circulated in this city and is said to be wholly unknown in Omaha where the people are person ally interested. The rendition of such an opinion will be followed by the re tirement of the old board. JOHN N. REYNOLDS DEAD. The Notorious Kansan Parses Away In an Asylum HU Record. Atciiison, Kan., Sept. 1 . John N Reynolds, the notorious ex-evangelist and convict, died in the Osawatomie asylum this morning, whither he was taken about a year ago.

He left a -wife and several married daughters. He left no property. Dead at His Wife's lirave. Chapman, Kan., Sept. 11. John Crowley, an old resident, disappeared last Wednesday and was searched for in vain. At 10 o'clock yesterday he was found dead at the foot of his wife's grave in the Catholic cemetery, where he had committed suicide Wolves had eaten his face and bodj so that he was uurecognizable except for his clothes.

They will be opened Wednesday and another attempt made to recover the bodies. TAYLORS PAIL IN BRIBERY. Bold Plans to Escape From the Carrolltem Jail Miscarry. Corrollton, Mo. , Sept. 13. Soom after the jury in the second trial of the Taylor brothers rendered a ver dict of jruilty of murder and Judge Rucker sentenced them to be hanged October 4. the two manifested a friendliness for Night Watchman Brown of the county jail and as soon as they felt sure that he was their friend they offered him a liberal sum of money to assist them in 'breaking" out of jaiL Brown listened to the proposition and then gave it in detail to Sheriff Stanley, who instructed him to en courage the Taylors and hear all their plans. Brown met the Taylor brothers the next night and assured them that he could and would fix it so that they could escape, but that as it would throw suspicion upon him and the condemned murderers to be seen conversing together, it would be advisable to conduct further -negotiations in writing. They accepted the advice and as the letters were received by Brown they were submitted by him to Sheriff Stanley, who, of course, knew what replies were sent to the Taylors. Ex tra guards will now be put in the jaiL Colorado Bandits Make a Miss. Grand Junction, CoL, Sept. 1 Just after the engineer of passenger train No. 1, which left this city last night on the Rio Grande Western road, reached Crevasse, about twenty-three miles west of here, he found that the engine had been run on a siding and was pulling only the mail and bag gage car, the rear portion of the train having: been cut off at the station. Then two robbere, each of medium size and masked, appeared, but finding that they hud left the express car with the train, mounted horses that were in waiting and skipped for the mountains. The first news of the hold-up was a dispatch from Superintendent A. E. McKee of the Rio Grande Western railroad to Sheriff Innes: "Call on agent of Rio Grande Western at your city if you need a car to take you and your deputies to Crevasse or other points." Sheriff Innes and posse started at once on a special train for the scene of the attempted robbery. So far as known the robbers secured nothing. They Are Not "Ancient," ' Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 12.
