The Heart-Song of Humanity.
Fob Th Kahmkiih' Ai.liasck.
The birds may sing, the south winds
The rosea bloom where once was snow;
The silv'ry rills leap down the vales
Where soft dews weep ami moonlight
Tho' every joy may call to me.
IMy heart song lie "Humanity."
;I haw to day the budding spring
Where willow tassels sway and swing,
Where alder trees give drip and Mow
To all the eager bees below;
And wild peas lift their feathery ttenis
' That soon shall wear such ruby gems.
While Nature brings her beauty hand
And turns to magic all the land.
Vet voice sing in minor key
The heart song of humanity.
The prairie hills are green again.
The a.uie m!st is o'er the glen;
The prairie thickens wake the morn
Where farmers plow long t ows for corn.
In groves of ours are hurrying quails
Whose whistled try the rain bewails.
Vet every wordless psalm or song
Comes like a wail of human wrong
A note that sings to you and me
The heart songs of humanity.

No Poison Found.
Lincoln, April 21. The chemist at
Ann Arbor to whom was submitted an
analysis of the contents of the stomach
of John Sheedy, the murdered man,
has finally completed his work and re
ported. The result is one that will
probably save Mrs. Sliced y from a
felon's punishment, as the chemist de
clares that there is no trace whatever
of poison in the stomach of the mur-d-jred
man. He adds, however, that
morphine might havo been given, but
as the evidences of that drug pass
away In a few hours of course he could
find no trace of it in the stomach. It
U therefore thought that the death of
Sheedy was caused either by morphiu'J
or by the blow from the cune in tho
hands of Monday McFarland.
One or two of the physicians who
e.iwSheedy boforo dent'idic'are that ho
showed evidences of morphine poifon-
ing. As tho physicians who held the
post mortem found no blood clot in the
brain the moi-phim; poisoning theory
is thought o bo the correct one, but as
there is t.othing to prove it Mrs.
SheoJy will probably go free.

A Carcfiilly Planned Deed.
New Vokk, April 21. A young
couple registered at the Grand Union
hotel Sunday morning as "P. B.
Brand and wife," and were assigned
to a room on the third floor. This
evening at 8:30 oclock they were found
locked in each others arms, cold in
death. They had employed the fam
iliar method of inhaling gas through
rubber tubes held in the mouth to
bring them to an untimely end. On
tho woman's breast lay a largo and
bjautiful boijtiotof roses. This showed
conclusively that tho self murder hud
been carefully planned by the couple,
as it was in many respects what the
reported suicide of the Archduke ltu
dolph was like. and of which the couple
pie had evidently thought. Tho man
Mas ab.Mil twenty-five years of ayo and
t!io woman was twenty-two. Tho
cou lo left four hitters. Their o itents
have not been made known, and no
cause has been learned for the rush
deed, but there is little doubt that
there will be developed a romance.
Mrs. Mutter, to whom one of the let
ters was addressed, was aeon tonight
but rt f isod to tuik of tho affair.
Mm said she knew the couple and that
the young man had registered his name
0 irrectly. In, she, gave tho impression
that the wo nun was nut wife.

THE SPANISH TREATY
A Satisfactory Agreement Made Be
tween the United Statesand Spain.
CONCESSIONS TO CUBA.
Tbe New Consrutlon rermlla the Knlrj
of Amerlran I'rodurta I'rart Iralljr Free
of Duly Abolition of th. Tarlft tm
Flour Utlier Foreign M.we.
Maprid, April 21 The reciprocity
convention between Spain and the Unit
ed States provides in return for the priv
ilege of free entry into the United
States of Antilles sugars, molasses,
coffee and hides, and a reduction of the
duty on tea. America will obtain ex
emption from duties on most of her raw
and manufactured products and a re
duction of tariff ou cereals and flour.
Negotiations were protracted on cereals,
flours and oils, including petroleum and
lard. The same question in regard to
tobacco was also raised, but, not coining
within the scope of the reciprocity sec
tion of the American tariff, was put
Premier Canovas offered a protracted
resistance to the abolition of the tariff
on flour, owing to the protests of .Span
ish traders. Eventually the representa
tions that American reciprocity would
lie impossible without the free admis
sion of American cereals induced Pre
mier Canovas to assent to such a reduc
tion in tariff that will place American
flour utKHi nearly an equal footing with
(Spanish flimr. Kantander merchants
declare that taking into considera
tion the cost of transportation,
American flour will crush out
the Hpanish product in the (Spanish
West Indies. Cuba now consumes
ooo.OoO barrels of flonr yearly chiefly
Hpauish which enters free of duty and
pays for it $13 ier barrel. Trade in
American flour, burdened with the ex
tra duty of 20 jier cent, since 1MB has
been completely wijied out to the ad
vantage of the Spanish prodect. Under
the new convention the enty of Ameri
can flour will be practically free of dot,
will lower the price to about fl er bar
rel and will extinguish the exportation
of Spanish flour, while increasing the
Cuban consumption to 1, 000,000 barrels
yearly, all ot which will be American
If the pressure of the Spanish inter
ests had not been counteracted by the
demands of the Cuban commission Can
ovas would have declined to make such
concessions. The prospect of a danger
ous tension of the relations of Spain
with Cuba and Porta Hico, resulting
possibly in a civil war, will oblige the
government to sacrifice home industries
to colonial interests. Under the new
convention America will obtain a kind
of zollvcrein with the Spanish Antilles.
Her wheat, beans, flour, lard, petrol
eum, manufactured products and ma
chinery will enter practically free of
duty. Among other Spanish exports
olive oil will le replaced by American
lard, and beans, now exported to Cuba
in largo quantities, will cease to lie sent,
The advantages resulting to Cuba will
be great, but it is impossible to esti
mate tiie injury to Spanish trade.

LUTHERANS TO THE RESCUE.
Ohio Brethren Subscribe Liberally to Aid
the Kan. a. Farmrra.
. t . 'T- T t.l
ATI Histw, April xi. ine L.awierani i
of Ohio have adopted a practical way
of assisting their impoverished brethren
on the Kansas frontier, and in their
good work they are receiving substan
tial assistance from the Lutherans at
Atchison. Some time ago the Ohio
fynod appointed the Rev. C. Meyer of
lierudon, Kan., to purchase seed wheat
for distribution in such counties as
Cheyenne, Thomas, Rawlins and others
in the northwest corner of the state.
The synod made aliberal subscription to
the fund, and Mr. Meyer wa authorized
to collect more from charitable people.
Three weeks ago he hauled twelve
wagon loads of wheat to his people in
Thomas county. This came mainly
from the Lutheran congregations at
Strut ton anl Trenton, Neb. Since then
he has visited all the other counties in
his district and distributed seed.
Much of the seed was given by pros
perous farmers of Nebraska, but the
most of it was purchased with money
sent from the east or raised by Mr.
Meyer. The congregations of the Ohic
synod sntiftcribed over fi.ooo in cash in
aid of Mr. Meyer's charity.
THE BEECH ER MONUMENT.
A Kile ftelected In Front of the Hrooklyr
C ity Hall.
Nkw York, April 1. The Brooklyn
park commissioners, the Bcecher monu
ment committee and Sculptor J. A,
Ward met in front of the Brooklyn city
hall to select a site for the Beecher
monument. Mr. Ward thought the
monument would show to the b"wt ad
vantage on the green in front of th
city hall, midway between the two
floral urns and about fifteen feet from
the coping. He also suggested that the
statue should lie placed with the face
toward the city hall htejm, The monu
ment committee believed that Mr.
Ward, who is the sculptor commis
sioned to do the work, knew what was
best, and reported his suggestion favor
ably to the park board then and there.
Then the nark commissioners held a
meeting and adopted the spot suggested
by Mr. Ward as the site. Tiie superin
tendent of parks, who was present, re
ceived instructions at once to have the
ground prepared for the foundation of
the pudental without loss of time. The
monument is to be unveiled on June 11.
RUMORED BURLINGTON DEAL.
The Dradttood Central to lie I'lirrhased

Deadwoud, H. D., April 21. Presi
dent Perkins, of the Chicago, Burling

by Messrs. Wittam and Callen, director
of the same company, arrived in the city
and spent the morning inspecting
the Deadwood Central railroad,
which has just completed its line
to the mining districts of Bald
mountain and Ruby basin. It is ru
mored in local railroad circles that a
deal is pending by which the LVadwood
Central and all its rights of way are to
be sold to tbe Burlington and Missouri,
a part of the Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy system, and that the visit of the
officials of tbe latter road is really a
preliminary to the conclusion of nego
tiations. The consideration for tho
Ueadwood Central will be 1,000,000.

poiied tbe Argument.
Wasbisutos. April 21. The attor
ney general has received a letter from
the district attorney at New Orleans,
stating that there is much difficulty in
securing evidence as to the nationality
of the men lynched by the New Orleans
mob. The district attorney says that
the affair lias left the community in
each an excited frame that those who
could tell the most will tell the least.
He had no federal grand jury to aid
him in ferreting out the facts, and he
must get at them through the aid of de
tectives or through tbe voluntary con
sent of parties to give their evidence.The
Italians of the locality who know most
almut the antecedents of their fellow
Italians who were lynched are naturally
disinclined to give voluntary testimony
against their countrymen or those who
were associated with them. The dis
trict attorney rejsirts, therefore, that
he is necessarily hamiered and must
proceed slowly. His report was expect
ed a week ago, but his letter indicates
that he will need some days aud perhajis
some weeks before forwarding the in
formation upon which Secretary Blaine
and tbe president will supplement the
action they have tbos far taken. The
attorney general is yet confined to his
house with la grippe and a boil, but is
fant recovering, aud expects to take
personal charge of tbe New Orleans in
quiry by the latter part of the week.

"Our representative, Dr. Wray, cabled
us that it is not a case of contagious

matter is," added the doctor, "we are
satisfied this case will turn out as the

investigation, it was shown to the sat

Britinh inspectors, that the sick animal

NAVY YARD EMPLOYE3.
Secretary Tracy Denies the. Workmen
Are to He Dismissed.
New Yoke, April 21. A question as
to the discbarge of all or any of the
two thousand or more employes of the
Brooklyn navy yard seems to have been
set at rest by the following telegram,
which was received by Admiral Braina
from Secretary of the Navy Tracy.
" 1 be story circulated in Urooklyn tbat
all mechanics and laborers in the yard
are to go out entirely unfounded. The
place of every mechanic and. laborer In
the yard will be permanent so long as
the itovernment has work for him to do.
and lie does it well. Foremen are th
only persons subjected to a competitive
examination. If with one to two year's
experience in their present positions
they are not able to coui)Mt with out
siders, then it is clear that a mistake,
was made in their original appoint
ment, and in tho interest of good gov
ernment they should be replaced by
more competent men."

which be says:
"The object of the conveatioa la to .
