Diminutive Eogine, the Patent for Which
Sells for Millions.
St. Patjl, Minn., Nov. 17. A small
rotary engine of novel design has been
invented by Grant Brambel of Sleepy
Eye, Minn., for patent of which H. F,
Allen of London, president of an engi
neering syndicate, has offered him 1,
The engine does away entirely with the
crank motion of the steam engine, a
most desirable, but to all intents and
purposes an impossible thing to do. The
engine uses its own plunger for a cut-off,
The engine is steam tight, and requires
no ring packing, it can be made marine
type, and of course can te either simple
or compound. :
It is not a cheap machine, although it
costs very much less than the ordinary
engine. It weighs less and occupies only
a fraction of the space of the old style
engine. Mr. Hrambel gays: "When any
one can build a fifty horse-power en
gine that may be carried around
in a- nana satcnei he has some
thing that is very valuable, particularly
when that engine is adapted to any and
all kinds of work wherever power is used
The Brambel engine of fifty-horse
power, weighing less than a hundred
pounds, may be attached to the anna'
tnre of a dynamo, and all the belting
done away with, or a Brambel engine
not larger tnau a common saucer could
be attached to a creamery separator,
and set it whirling at the rate of 6,500
revolutions a minute. The largest of
these engines, !ioU horse power in size, is
leds than a foot wide at the base and
eighteen inches high. It is in use in
dynamo room at Trenton, N. J., and the
firm say they never bad a more satisfac
tory machine. Tbe patent was obtained
a year ago, since which time several ma
chines have been built and put into use.'

, Washinstos, Nov. 18. It is learned
here on authority that the Spanish
government has given General Weyler
to understand that he must push his
operations against the insurgents ag
gressively and vigorously. Unless he
soon achieves a decisive victory over
the Cubans it is believed he will be re
called. General Weyler, it is under
stood, is aware of the alternative and
his present campaign in Pinar del Bio
is expected to result in an engagement
that will put a new aspect on the
Cuban situation one way or the other.
General Weyler has all the troops
that he can use. There are over 200,
000 Spanish soldiers in Cuba and the
force under the captain general in his
present operations m the field in per
son is over 60,000 men. Maceo, against
whom he is now operating, has under
him, it is estimated, about 7,000 men.
Spain having fulfilled all of General
Weyler's' wishes as to troops, now ex
pects results from him. Consul Gen
eral Lee has acquainted the adminis
tration with theso facts and the Presi
dent is at present simply awaiting
events and will shape his course by tbe
It is the hope of General Weyler that

and has urged General Weyler to dem
onstrate his ability to crush the rebel
lion within the next two weeks, if possible.

TBTJTH BEGINNING TO LEAK OUT
Banks are Breaking.Uen Discharged,
Hours Reduced Wages Out
The Real Facta Related.
Chicago, Nov. 13. The Chicago and
Alton railroad has issued a bulletin to
its employes tonight announcing that
the hours of labor will be reduced from
eight to seven hours, and that after No
vember 25 the shops of the company will
be completely shut down until December
1, and that thereafter the hours will be
reduced to thirty-six hours a week. The
reasons given are hard times, and the
falling off in passenger and freight bus!
One of the evening papers states that
10,000 have been laid off in this city
since November 3. In nearly every rail
road freight house a good percentage of
the workmen have been forced to join
the army of unemployed, and the reduc
tion in the number of employes is not
confined to them and many big corpora
tions throughout the city are pursuing a
like policy. Most of them, no doubt,
would have been discharged weeks ago,
were it not for the approaching election.
but this does not ease the bitterness of
the men, who had been promised all sorts
of prosperity after tbe election of Mc-
Newspapers, too, are adding to the
discontent by their announcements that
mills and factories are opening up, thus
inducing hundreds of men to come here
in search of work. News at labor head
quarters here, is , that, instead of mills
and factories opening up with increased
forces of men in this and neighboring
sections of other states, the reverse is
generally the fact.
WHAT THEY WILL DO.
Governor Holcomb Discusses Proba-
bilities of the Coming Ses
sion of the Legislature. ,
enter into a discussion of what thnext
legislature may do. Many reforms in
the interest of good government should
be inaugurated and propably will. I do
not expect any radical legislation and
no legialation such as seems to be an
ticipated by tbe nature of your inquiry
I never have heard discussed the subject
of amending or modifying our stay laws
and am of the impression that the laws
relative to enforcement and collection
o! debts through the channels of the
courts have been fairly satisfactory to
all concerned, borrower as well as lender,
and that under normal condition no
complaints would arise from either
source as to tbe equity of thee provisions
oi statute. Bumee it to say in an answer
to all these questions that the next state
assembly will be composed of a represen
tative ooay oi Nebraska citizen. It
will include professional men.
merchants, mechanics and farmers, in
fact, be a body of men realising and ap
preciating the great interests involved in
the development of the tesourcea of our
state and its advancement as a great
commonwealth as much or more so than
any similar preceding body. The over-
wneiming victory of our legislative tickst
has been due largely to the fact that the
best men have been chosen in the vari
ous districts to lead in tbe content and
have not only been able to hold the en
tire strength of the reform' forces but
have drawn largely from republican
voters. These men have a personal in
terest in the welfare of Nebraska and will
seek to advance the prosperity of the
state oy wise and Judicious legislation.
l apprehend that the coming session will
bo characterized by business methods
and such wise and judicious legislation
as will reflect credit on that body and
the people of the state."
At a regular meeting of the Bryan
Home Guards held at the Lincoln hotel
last night the guards as a military or
ganization was disbanded and on motion
was immediately reorganized as the
Bryan Home Guards Literary and So
cial organization by the election of a
president and secretary and the appoint-
ment of a committee of nine on perman
ent organization, constitution aud by
laws, which will report at the next meet
ing on Friday evening, November 25, at
Ttfu p, m. t the Lincoln hotel.
The annual meeting of the county com
missioners and supervisors of the state
will be held this year in the county court
in Lincoln on December 8 and 9. Already
over 300 persons have signified their in
tention to be present and J. Charles
Miller has been selected to make the wel
coming address. County Commissioners
Westcott and Beckman are members of
the committee on arrangements. Spe
cial railroad and hotel accommodations
have been secured and a large attend
ance may be expected.
Business Methods and Wise Measures,
Governor Holcomb submitted to inter
view yesterday at tbe hands of a reporter
for the Lincoln paper which always
manifests such a deep interest iu the
preservation of the credit of the state
that it is continually crediting to its po
litical opponents every direful scheme
possible to imagine that could be subject
to criticism. In the interview the gov
ernor says: , ., ' '
"I have read in some papers and heard
repeated expressions indicative of appre
hension of conditions detrimental to the
best interests of the state growing out
of the election just held.
"1 do not believe than any appreben
sion to any appreciable extent should or
does exist among those connected with
legitimate business enterprises in this
state, whether residing in this state or
out of it, as to the intention and ability
of the successful state officers and of the
legislature which is soon to convene, to
give to the state a safe, economical and
business administration of its affairs fori
the next two years. An honest, econ
omical administration of the state s af
fairs certainly ought not to excite the
apprehension of any one. Tbe next legis
lature, I doubt not, will be guided in its
actipu by a desire tq serve the best in
terests of all the people of the state of
Nebraska and not only to 'preserve the
credit of the state but to improve it.
The business men of Nebraska and else
wLere need have no apprehension on ac
count of the defeat of republican misrule
in the state. I am fully aware that there
are disappointed politicians and others
who are now standing on the street cor
ners crying out that capital will be
drawn out of tbe state or will cease to
come in and that our credit is ruined all
because the people of Nebraska have ex
pressed a preference for a clean, honest.
efficient state government. Such a cry
is unwortny oi any loyal uebraskan.
Our people, by the election of the fusion
ticket, have expressed a desire for re
forms such as are advocated in tbe plat
forms of our state conventions.
"They desire the idle perraanentschool
fund of over half a million dollars in
vested fot tbe benefit of the school chil
dren of the state aud not kept for per
"They ask for a reduction in tbe ex
pense of maintaining state institutions;
not, however, to a degree that would
lead to parsimony, but a saving wher
ever it can be had consistent with the
proper management of tbe institution.
"1 believe it to be tbe interest of the
people of the state to have enacted
some comprehensive legislation looking
to the control and management of the
state penitentiary on state account
and not under the contract system as
heretofore conducted and to make it as
nearly as possible Belt sustaining.
"These and many Other reforms tend
ing towards a reduction of state ex
penses with a consequent lessening of
taxation awaits the action of the legis
lature. The people demand and have a
right to expect that the men whom they
place in office will be their faithful ser
vants and not the servile tools of cor
porate interests; men who will carefully
consider every interest which adds to
the development of the resources and to
the prosperity of our state and that
each and all of these different interests
be treated fairly and justly. The desire
upon the part of the people to have in
augurated these and similar reforms has
led to the success of tbe fusion ticket
and I confidently predict that In the end
the people will not be disappointed.
" iou esk me whether any laws will be
passed against railroads and corpora
tions; whether a stay law will be passed,

foreign capital shown. I do not care to

BACES IT UP
When The Nebraska advertises anything it doesn't make any
difference whether it's an article, at I15 or 15 cents you can
always depend that not only have we got it, but that we kive
i plenty of it, and that we are as anxious to sell it as you sure
anxious to buy, We never advertise one thing and try to sill
you another. We never resort to catchpenny devices or "hit
than cost, reduction sales, and we never put anything in tis
papers that we can't back up. Today we want to call yonr
attention to a new line of genuine Irish Frieze Ulsters for
men, which by careful buying and careful business methods
we are able to sell for ten dollars each and which we have no .
hesitancy in warranting as equal to any fifteen-dollar frieze
ulsters sold anywhere by any store at any time, In order to
Bell these ulsters at 10 profitably we will have to sell a great
many of them, and we have a great many of them to sell.
They are not in our catalogue. They are a special purchase.
They are strictly first-class, genuine Irish Frieze Coats, and
you can have a sample of the cloth by simply asking for it by
mail. If it isn't equal to any $15 coat you ever saw, we don't ;
ask you to buy it. If you want a splendid overcoat, send for
a sample of these. ; '
