mitted have been turned over to the
committee to pass upon. This commit
tee is composed of Boss L. Hammond
of the Fremont Tribune. ex-Governor
Ii. W. Furnas and C. H. Morrill of Lin

itors as the officers of the club had
hoped for, and for that reason it will
not take the committee long to reach a
decision.
The secretary of war has ordered
Major E. J. Fetchet, who is detailed as
special military aid to the governor of

the condition of the military force of
the state to the department at Wash
ington. This is to embrace not only
the men and officers enlisted in the Na
tional guard, but all subjectto military
duty. As it relates to the guard the
report asked for is to be a complete re
lation of the discipline, equipment and
training of the force, with special re
ports as to the capacitj and attainment
of the individual officers.
United States court will be open in
Lincoln May 4, and at the present time
it looks as if there would be two judges
there. Judge Riner of Cheyenne wrote
some time ago that he would open the
term, and a few days ago a letter was
received from Judge Shiras of Dubuque
saying tuat he would be. in Lincoln to
open the term. The court calendar in
cludes a term of court at Hastings,
commencing April 20, and one at Nor
folk, commencing April 27, but owing
to the absence from the state of the
resident judge these terms will proba
bly be allowed to go by default.

vehicle, his clothes caught in one of
the wheels and he was dragged for
some distance. His nether garments
were all torn from him with the excep
tion of a portion of his underwear
around one ankle. One shoulder was
dislocated, there was a severe gash on
the upper lip and one temple and on
the back of his head the hair was worn
away to the flesh.
Dick Ringer of Friend committed su
icide the other day by cutting his throat
with a razor. He had been bitten on
the hand by a dog about four months
ago. The animal was not known to be
rabid. The wound healed quickly and
no bad effects were felt until recentlj',
when he was taken with what was
supposed to be grip Doctors being
called at once pronounced the case one
of hydrophobia. While lying on a cot
in the small kitchen, he sprang up,
rushed to an adjoining bedroom, seized
a razor from a stand and cut his throat
almost before his parents and three
young men who were watching were
able to realize what was being done.
The real estate exchange of Omaha
passed the following: Whereas, The
Nebraska club has been organized
among the business and professional
men of the state for the purpose of
counteracting the evil reports that have
been spread broadcast of our state, and
for the promotion of immigration into
our state by setting before the people
of the east its abundant advantages
and opportunities as an agricultural,
stock and business state; we, the Ileal
Estate association of Omaha, Neb., do
hereby extend to the Nebraska club
our hearty support. That as individual
members we pledge it our material as
sistance, and we will do all we can
with our clients holding realty in our
state to induce them to join the asso
ciation and promote its interests.
The clerical force of the Burlington
shops have finished compiling the cost
of the four new class K engines, the
construction of which was commenced
at Havelock, Nebraska, last September
and finished the first of the year. The
average cost of each engine wasS7,
318.94, the cost for material 84,171.22
and for labor 83,147.72.' A like number
of engines were built at Aurora, 111.,
and Burlington, la., at the same time.
The results place Havelock at the bot
tom as to the matter of cost of con
struction and at the top as to efficiency
in management. The Havelock shops
are among the largest in the west and
in all their appointments there is noth
ing finer or more complete in the coun
try. It is perhaps needless to state that
Havelock people are quite elated over
the showing which the local shops have
made.
The grain dealers of Omaha passed
the following: Whereas, the Nebraska i
club has been organized by representa
tive citizens for the purpose of promot
ing the interests of our state by spread
ing reliable information as to its resour
ces and opportunities for the new settler
and furthering immigration to the
state. Resolved, That we, the grain
dealers of Douglascounty and the state,
most cordially approve of the objects
of the club and pledge it our hearty
support. That as individual members
we will contribute to its stock and aid
it in every possible way; that we will
impress upon our customers and clients
the objects of the club and urge their
co-operation in its promotion.
i MORE TALKS ABOUT CUBA
I REPREf NATIVES EXPRESS THEIR
VIEWS ON THE RESOLUTIONS.
WILL VOTE ON MONDAY.
Immediately After the Readier t the
Journal the Cuban Resolution Will
Be Disposed of Mr. Adams of
Pennsylvania, Charges the
Senate With Filibuster
ing Against Cuba.
Washington, April 6. In the House
to-day Mr. Adams of Pennsylvania, of
the committee on foreign affairs,
was the first speaker on Cuban resolu
tions. He said that he should have
refrained from addressing the House
further on this question but for the
"extraordinary performance of the
gentleman from Maine (Mr. Boutelle)
yesterdaj'." Referring to the charge
that the people were not behind the
effort of Congress to grant proper rec
ognition to Cubj, he asserted that
Congress had seldom before received
so many petitions on any subject as
this. He contended that a handful of
Senators had taken advantage of the
rules of the Senate to prevent the
adoption of the conference report by
filibustering. The Cubans had an or
ganized form of government and were
in every way entitled to recognition.
Mr. Knox of Massachusetts was rec
ognized to read a letter from his
colleague, Mr. Draper, a member of
the foreign affairs committee, oppos
ing the adoption of the conference
report He said that he differed from
Mr. Draper and made a plea for
atlirmsttive action. He thought meas
ures should be taken to put an end to
the barbarous warfare and that for
this country to fail to do this would
be to incur the loss of self-respect as
well as to deserve the contempt of all
foreign nations.
The House then decided to hold a
night session for debate on the Cuban
resolutions and to vote Monday after
the reading of the journal.
The River and Harbor Hill Reported
Washington, April 5. Chairman
Hooker of the River and Harbor com
mittee to-day submitted to the House

mates, by the chief of engineers,

engineers in charge to $48,837,027; be
sides the estimates of the Mississippi
and Missouri River commissions. Of
the total amount recommended, about
86 per cent, or $3,642,800, is for har
bors, $6,587,700 for rivers and $100,000
for surveys, etc The continuous con
tract system is especially recom
mended, and the bill gives authority
to the secretary of war to enter into
contracts for the completion oi thirty
two different projects, amounting to
$51,721,210. .
BURGLARS AT THE CAPITOL
A Bold Attempt to Ureak Into Senator
Qoay's Desk.
Washington, April 6. The Senate
committee room on public buildings
and grounds was broken into last
evening, and an unsuccessful attempt
made to break into Mr. Quay's desk.
The iron bolts fastening the doors at
the top and bottom were pried out of
the sockets, showing that strong tools
had been employed.
It is believed by the senator that an
attempt was made to get possession of
his political papers, but, even if the
desk had been opened, the political
papers would noi have been obtained,
as they had all been removed to Mr.
Quay's house a week ago. Nothing
else in the room was disturbed.
About a year after the election of
188s Mr. Quay's desk was robbed of all
his political papers, and they have
never been recovered. They were not
important, as they were what the
senator termed "trash left over which
might well have been destroyed."
The W. C. T. U. With Hajrhee.
Chicago, April 6. The officers of
the W. C. T. U. have sent a telegram
to Senator Frye to be presented to the
Secretary of the Interior protesting
against the removal of Governor
Hughes of Arizona and urging a thor
ough investigation. The reason for
this is "Governor Ilughes well known
championship of temperance in all
questions of reform." The state
presidents of the W. C T. U. are being
urged to wire similar requests to their
senators.
Praise the American Missionaries.
London, April 6. The Duke of Ar
gyle in a circular appealing for relief
funds for Armenia,pays tribute to the
work of American missionaries, whom,
he says, with bravery have undertaken
the work in the face of many difficul
ties and much discouragement and are
distributing relief from nineteen de
pots which Sir Philip Currie, the Brit
ish ambassador, and Mr. Terrell, the
United States minister, have been the
means of establishing.
A Legislator la a Mexican Jail.
El Paso, Tex., April 6. Israel M.
King of Silver City, a member of the
New Mexico Legislature, was arrested
in Juarez to-day, some personal enemy
having accused him of stealing Mexi
can calves in driving cattle over the
line at Palomas. though he says he
had bills of sale for all the stock. lie

less an effective appeal can be made
to the authorities at Washington.
Healer Schrader In Jail In Kentucky.
Cincinnati, O., April C. "Healer
Schrader, who was ordered from Cin
cinnati by the health officers, went
over to Newport, Ky., and began to

was arrested on the charge of being a
general nuisance.
EDISON'S LATEST.
Reproductions of Kiiu-tcm-ope 1'lotures
Cast Ilfe-L.ike on u Screen.
New York, April 6. Thomas Edison
was in a very happy mood when seen
in his laboratory in West Orange last
night. He had about -completed an
other machine, which he calls the
"vitascope." It is an improvement of
the kinetoscope, and Mr. Edison says
he has no doubt that it will prove to
be a success.
The vitascope throws oi a screen
by means of bright lights and power
ful lenses the moving life sizw: iigures
of human beings and animals, Last
night in the big foundry building ad
jacent to the laboratory the machine
was rigged up and a very satisfactory
exhibition was made.
The first picture shown on the
screen was a colored panorama of a
serpentine dance by Anabelle. who
posed before the kinetoscope last sum
mer. The film roll on which the pho
tographs were attached was arranged
over u half dozen spools and pulleys,
and when the machine was set in mo
tion the dancer's image appeared upon
the screen, as if in life. The original
photographs, as taken by the kineto
graph and developed on the roll, are
about the size of a special delivery
postage stamp, and to produce a pic
ture life size are magnified about 600
times.
Mr. Edison expects shortly to be
able to so improve the phonograph
that he will be able to take records
much longer than now and the vita
scope and phonograph will be so com
bined that it will be possible for an
audience to watch a photographic
reproduction of an opera and hear the
music at the same time.
BARKER FAVORS A BOLT.
The Philadelphia Silverlte Calls for a
Union of White Metal Advoates.
Denvkb, Colo., April 6. The Rocky
Mountain News has received the fol
lowing message from Mr. Wharton
Barker of Philadelphia:
'Philadelphia, Pa., April 3. This
action of the Manufacturers Club.thie
weak straddle, taken with the declar
ation of Mr. John Converse, candi
date for president of the club:
am for the single gold standard,'
convinces all those bimetallists
who have hoped to see the Re
publican party adopt a straightout
plank for the restoration of silver to its
old place 16 to 1 by independent ac
tion of the United States, that the
friends of silver remonetization must
abandon that hope. As the Demo
cratic party is not likely to do better
than the Republican party, it is the
duty of those of all parties who do
not hold principle subservient to po
litical expediency and who put patriot
ism before partisanship, to come to a
common understanding with each
other, unite on a common policy, join
in the promulgation of a definite
policy and unite and at once organize
for political action. The several con
ventions called to meet at St. Louis
will, of course, ratify any action the
plain people agree in demanding.

CUBA INDUSTRIES RUiNED
The liusiness of the Island
Paralyzed
by the Kebelllon.
Havana, April 6. The total amount
of sugar made in Cuba this year will
not exceed 130.000 tons. This enor
mous shrinkage means, it is estimated,
a money loss of So6,000,000. The to
bacco crop will be greatly diminished.
The other products of the island, hides,
mahogany and cedar are practically
not to be had. Nothing is being done
on the stock exchange, and the pro
duce exchange is lifeless.
Flour, potatoes and the commonest
necessaries of life cannot be sold on
business principles. There is
no
money.
Havana is like a tomb. Even j
the cabs ceased to rnn in the streets in
recognition of Holy Thursday and
Good Friday. Business, what there
is, has been suspended. , No news
papers are printed.
"Where Am I At?" MtiMt Go.
Washington, April 6. House com
mittee on elections No. 1 has voted to
unseat James E. Cobb, .the Democratic
incumbent, and seat Goodwin, who
ran against him as a Populist. The
decision was reached by a party vote.
There was no Republican candidate in
the district, but the Republican vote
was largely cast for Goodwin. Ac
cording tc the returns the vote was:
Cobb, 10,051; Goodwin, 9,903. Allega
tions of ballot box stuffing and intimi
dation were made. Cobb is now serv
ing his fourth term in Congress. He
was the author of the famous "Where
am I at?"

New York, April 6. It is reported
that neither Russell Harison nor Mrs.
McKee will attend their father's mar
riage to Mrs. Dimmick next Monday,
but the ex-President is going ahead
with his plans with as much enthusi
asm as might be expected from a
young lover. General Tracy, who was
Secretary of the Navy in the Harrison
administration will be his former
chief's best man. All the members of
the old Harrison cabinet are expected
to attend except Mr. Wanamaker, who
is out of the country.

Omaha, April 1. General Solicitor .
Manderson of the B. & M. railroad has :
issued the following circular to the
several thousand purchasers of proper

state: I
As one claiming an interest in lands

tnn roilrnoH ttiii n ra ronilired tO enter
appearance in said court by April 6,
1896, and file an answer setting forth
your interest in said lands before May
4 next.
By the terms of an act of congress,
approved March 2, 1896, it is provided
as to land grant lands sold by railroads
that "no patent to any lands, held by a
bona fide purchaser, shall be
or annulled, but the r
such purchaser are here

or the value thereof, that were certified j
or patented in lieu of other lands,
covered by grant, which were lost or :
relinquished by the grantee in conse
quence of the failure of the govern- (
ment, or its officers, to withdraw ine
same from 6ale or entry." A full copy
of said act of congress is hereto at
tached. By its terms j-ou will see that the
title of all lands bought of the Burling
ton railroad will be confirmed upon the
bona fides or good faith of the purchase
being established, either in the depart
ment of the interior or in the courts.
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
railroad companj' has already taken
steps to establish the good faith of all
sales of land made by it in the depart
ment of the interier and hopes to pro
cure a discontinuance by the govern
ment of this very unnecessary suit.
In the event that this dismissal
should not be had the railroad compa
ny stands ready to make appearance
and file answer for all defendants who
have ptirchased lands from it. This
will be done without expense of attor
ney's fees to . vou. It is. of course, op-
I i tional whether you will employ your
own attorney or take advantage your
self of this offer.
If you conclude f-o to do, you should
j ct at once, and send with all speed to
the undersigned:
1. The copy of the subpoena served
upon you by the United States marshal.
2. A statement giving your full
name, rtostoflioe address and place of

Accompanying the circular is a copy
of the act of congress of March 2, 1S96,
entitled "An act to provide for the ex
tension of the time in which suits may
be brought to vacate and annull land
patents and for other purposes."
lllanks for the entry of appearance of

Unpledged.
Concord, N. H., April 3. The
NewIiampshireKepablicans held their
State convention here to-day to elect
delegates to the National Republican
convention at St. Louis. United States
Senator William LI Chandler presided,

Only one ticket for delegates-at-large
was named. Stephen S. Jewett
of Lacouia, General Frank S. Streeter
of Concord, Charles T. Means of Man
chester and Colonel James A. Wood of
Acworth. These four were elected by
acclamation. George A. C. Clark of
Manchester, Stephen A. Gale of Exe

Dexter Richards of Newport were
chosen as alternates.
Colonel Frank Rollins of Concord
offered a substitute financial plank,
identical with that adopted by the
Massachusetts convention last week
as an amendment to the resolutions,
but Chairman Putney, Senator Gal
linger and others opposed the proposi
tion and the amendment was lost by
Bu overwhelming viva voce vote and
the adoption of the platform as pre

unanimous. It opens with denuncia

A tested cough mixture recipe comes
I from an English lady. It is palatable
and very effectual. Boil three large
lemons in water seven minutes, drain
off the water and slice the lemons as
thin as possible. Put them in an earth
en bowl with one pound of the best
brown sugar and stand the bowl on
the stove until the mixture is at boil
ing point. Then draw to the back of
the stove and let the mixture simmer
three hours. Remove from the fire, and
when it has stood half an hour add
small tablespoonful of oil of sweet al
monds. It is to be used warm. Stir
and take in teaspoonful doses as long

To make a wax for polishing hard
vood floors cut one pound of beeswax y
into small pieces, put them in a dish
and place it over the fire in a pan of
hot water. Allow the wax to melt and
then stir in three pints of turpentine.
When the ingredients have thorough
ly blended, place some of the wax on
a woolen cloth and rub it on the floor,
treating one board at a time and rub
bing lengthwise. Then cover a heavy
brush with flannel and with it rub the
floor until it is perfectly smooth. It
is usually the case that some parts of
the floor are subject to more wear than
others. When the polish has worn
off in these spots warm the wax and
apply to the worn places and then
polish.
