E one k" Indep k n i. k n t :
At the last general election J).
T. Welty, the people's independent
candidate for judge of this, the
Fourteenth judicial district, was
and honestly elected to said office
as shown by the returns from all
the counties comprising the dis
trict, ly a plurality of three votes.
This was conceded by his oppo
nents until Monday night, the nth
inst, when it was discovered that
the county canvassing board of
Furnas county had perpetrated a
gross fraud, and a crime against
the election laws.
The county canvassing board of
Furnas county convened on Friday
the 8th, and wrote up the canvass
and made the proper footings of
the vote. This canvass, together
with the returns from all the other
counties of the district then showed
that the Hon. D. T. Welty had
been elected by a plurality of
three. On the following Sunday
the county clerk turned the keys
of his office over to one Charles S.
Anderson, an attorney of Beaver
City, and a bitter opponent of
Judge vVelty's, and from noon of
that day until 8 or 9 o'clock that
eveoing Mr. Anderson had full ac
cess to the county clerk's office and
to the poll books and ballots for
the various precincts, contrary to
law. On the following Monday
the county clerk called the two
canvassers together and again
made the footing of the number of
votes, and it was then found that
six votes had been added to the
vote of G. W. Norris, the repub
lican candidate for district judge,
over what had appeared the Fri
day previous. ,
The county clerk, with the
knowledge that this book had been
changed and altered, and without
looking again at the returns from
from the precincts to makc any
corrections, certified the vote to
the secretary of state. The change
was made by changing the vote of
one precinct from "40" to "4b." It
is a very coarse piece of work, and
shows upon inspection with the
naked eye that a forgery has been
commuieu. 1. a. Mil kioan.

Bkiu.in, Nov. SO. A dispatch re
ceived here from Sotia, IiiiluriB, says
that tho Sultan of Turkey, Abdul
Humid, has been loi&oned. No de
tails are tfiven.
According to reports from Constan
tinople throughout Saturday night,
which wits a most critical day for the
Turkish empire, tho sultan was close
to the telegraph instrument in tho Yil
diz kioBk, personally dictating instruc
tions to tin? different provincial gi
ernors to do tlieir utmost to restore or
der in their districts. This indicat

opened to the eharucterof his advisers
and had finally determined to take tho
reins of government in his own hands,
and may have cui.m.mI his enemies to
The lack of suliiciet;t funds to equip
the reserves called out, and the bear
city of regular troops in the disturbed
provinces was also reported to be a
matter of great concern to the sultan,
who was taid to be rapidly getting an
idea of the extent to which misgovcrn

lowing details are obtainable concern
ing the Kharput massacre: The
troubles between the Kurds ami .Mus
sulmans at KhurpiU had been brewing
for some time. On one hand it was
claimed that the Armenians, incited by
the agents of their revolutionary com
mittee, had been arming tlieneelves,
holding secret meetings und pre
paring for revolt ugainst the
Turkish authorities. The crisis was
to bo precepitated by an attach
upon the Mussulman quarter. A sec
ond version is that the Turks, acting
under instructions from the Vidi.
Kiosk officials, if not from the Sultan
himself, deliberately planned to mus"'
Kacre the Armenians. The Kurds,
who were not armed with rifles, were
provided with weapon finjiliir to those
used by the Turkish soldiers, and am
munition was plentifully distributed
among them. At a tignal ugrecd
upon a quarrel was picked
with fiomii Armenians and the
attack upon their quarter was
commenced. Tho 'Armenian'!, how

armed themselves as well as possible
and had barrieuded their dwellings

When the Armenian repulsed tho
first attack of the Kurds, the latter

AFTER THE UNION PACIFIC
The Traiia-aiinaonrl Jrplgbt Assnciatias
Kansas Citv, Mo., Nov. 20. The
Trans-Missouri Freight Association ia
in session at the Coates house ia this
city. There are many matters of Im
portance on the docket, including1 the
question of e.vcessive grain rates
charged by the Cnion Taeiflo railway
on shipments from Nebraska points to
Kansas City. Assistant Cieneral
Freight Agent Klmer II. Wood of the
Union I'acitic is present at the meet
ing. When asked if it was the Inten
tion of the Union t'acitie to withdraw
the excessive grain rates, ho said that
he could not, tell what would be done
until the matter had been taken up in
the meeting. He would neither iillirm
nor deny that he had the authority to
withdraw the rates, but expressed
the opinion that since the rates
had been checked up by the Trans
Missouri Freight association they .
would have to be acted upon by that
body and not by the Union Pacific
alone. The grain men are watching
the meeting closely, and if the relief
they demand is not given they will re
quest the other commercial "interests
to unite in an open warfare against
the Union i'acitic.
.1. K. Utt. commissioner of tho Oma
ha Transportation bureau, and W. W.
liabcock. general manager of the Oma
ha htock yards, are iu tho city and
will appear before the association in
the hope of obtaining better rates for

products. The sessioim of the uhsocu
tion will bo executive.

Xkw York, Nov. 30. W. II. Rossing
ton of the Santa Fe road, states that
nothing has been definitely settled in
regard to the presidency of the road.
Tim oompany has been organized
under tho laws at Kansas and the
charter gives tho Incorporators the
right to choose a board of directors,
which will elect a president and other
officers. Ah to the choice of a pres
ident, Mr. Kossington thought it
would not be tn the interest of tho
company to select, a man who is un
familiar with !), loo miles of road which
he will have to control. That objec
tion applies directly to Mr. Ripley, it
is said. Asked who would probably
Ci5 elected president, he answered that
he co-lid "9t tell, though ho had no
objcctlmi to naming the man of his
preference. That man he said is Vice
President I), it. Robinson, and he
ad tied he believed Mr. Robinson was
also the preference of all the Western
men who will hTe n voice in tho
New Wmtorn Agreement.
Kansas Citv, Mo., Nov. 20. The
new agreement of the Western Pass
er.gT Association does not become ef
fec'.iv? until December 1. The origi
nal plan was to placo it in operation
November 15, but some of the breth
ren were anxious for fifteen days'
gace In order to get rid of contracts
for a certain class of business, which
would have been in conflict with tho
provisions of the new agreement. A
special meeting of the association was
held in Chicago for the purposo of
electing a chairman, to provide drafts
of agreement for the local associations
and to transact any other business
that may properly come before tho
meeting. The election is a foregone
conclusion, and Chnirman Caldwell
will, without "question, be his own
