The Bridge Decision a Great Victory
for the Sock Island.
NEBRASKA'S LABOR LAW.
The BailroadS Will Avoid It by raying
by the near Ticket Seal par' Traf
Western Lines ta Begalate
, Certificate Excursions.
Chicago, July 88. "The decision of
the United State court ia of the most
importance to this road," said General
Manager St John, of the Bock Island,
referring to the action of the federal
court in the Omaha bridge case.
"While we confidently expected the
court would uphold our position to
most of the points, it is gratifying to
learn that every point has been decided
in our favor. We have been delayed in
the operation of this new line some six
months on account of this suit, but I
apprehend no further delay from this
same cause." .
For particulars regarding the suit
Mr. St. John referred to the general
counsel of the road, Mr. WHrht, who
said: "There are many reason why
this decision is of the greatest import
ance to the Bock bland. In the first
place it lets ns into Omaha. It gives u the
use of our tracks between Omaha and
Lincoln. Then it allows us to use the
tracks of the Union Pacific between
Lincoln and Beatrice. When we
started to construct this new line we
tried to arrange with the Union Pacific
for the use of it bridge over the Mis
souri river but could make no contract.
We began to survey for a bridge of our
own. Then the Union Pacific said it
would make a contract with us where
by we could use its bridge, allow them
to use our tracks from Omaha to Lin
coln and we wonld use their tracks from
Lincoln to Beatrice.
"Then Jay Gould got bold of the road
and claimed that the directors had no
right to make such an agreement and
thereby came the suit. The case will
probably be appealed, but in the mean
time we will in all probability have the
use of the line."
Nebraska's Labor Law.
Omaha, July 28. Nebraska railway
managers are arranging (heir plans to
practically nullify the law of the late
Alliance legislature which goes into
effect Aug. 1. It makes eight hours a
day's work. All the companies have
Srepared instructions to their employes
eclurine that all will be employed and
paid by the hour after Aug, 1.--It is no
secret that organized labor is opposed
to this scheme, as the eight-hour meas
ure was fostered by their representa
tives at the time of its consideration by
the Alliance. Many of the companies
expect trouble to result when their men
discover what is being done. The new
law enacted penalties for attempting to
avoid its provisions, and it was only
after consultation and legal advice that
the railroad companies concluded to
On the Missouri Pacific and Burling
ton trouble is most likely to arise. It
is generally believed that Gould' pres
ence in the west now means that he de
sires to be on the ground to superintend
the matter. As crops are now being
handled, a strike would force the roads
to terms or result in great damage.
The railroad employes understand the
Ticket Scalpers' Trust.
Chicago, July 28. Now it is a ticket
scalpers trust. For some time the older
ticket scalpers, who stand in with the
railroads, have, realized that before the
Western Passenger association difficul
ties are settled the scalpers will have a
chance to reap a harvest. The compact
was ratified at a meeting at the Sher
man house. On July 31, all lines will
begin selling tickets from St. Louis to
Chicago and return for $3. The lowest
one way faro is 5.?5. The Chicago
scalpers will get all the return coupons,
Chicago to St. Louis, that they can use
for (3.30 each, and they have formed an
agreement to go into voluntary bank
ruptcy before they will sell a ticket to
tjt. Louis for less than $3. This will
save passengers 4.') cents and make $3.50
for the scalpers.
Chicaoo, July 28. -The Western Pas
senger association is devoting a few 0
its precious moments not absorbed in
contemplating the Grand Army war in
devising a plan whereby certificate ex
cursion business can be regulated. The
association is willing to grant reduced
rates when the attendance justifies, but
too often it has discovered afterward
the attendance was so slender that a re
duced rate became ridiculous. The
rate, once authorised can not well be
withdrawn after tickets have been sold,
06't the question is how the rate can be
made effective if the attendance 1 suf

THE WEATHER BUREAU.
Chaste That Will Increase the Value of
Chicaoo, July 23. Prof. Mark W.
Harrington, the new chief of the
United States weather bureau, made an
important announcement while here on
bis first tour , of inspection. "One oi
changes made in the bureau," he said,
"is the enlargement of the local value ol
weather predictions by the appointment
of twenty forecasters. The list of
places where these appointments will be
made has not yet been entirely com
pleted. "Heretofore the general forecast
from Washington have been practically
the only ones. These are valuable to
the commercial interest of the whole
country, but not so much to the public
locally or the agricultural interests. It
is the purpose of the bureau to make It
self of much greater value to the latter
than ever before. Generally speaking,
the offices will be thickly scattered along
the northern boundary, where changes
re most frequent. The Canada ob
servatories, while excellent and operated
on much the same plan as our own, are
not numerous and their local forecasts
are not minute."
THEIE LAST DRIVE.
Dltrlng Accident to a Partr of Bis at
Hallway Crossing roar Per
Elmiba, N, Y., July 28. An accident
occurred about 9 o'clock at an Erie rail
way crossing near Eldridge park in
which four persons were killed and two
so seriously injured that the doctors
say they are likely to die at any mo
ment. The Bev. Wellington White was
out driving with his wife and three
children, Hattie Hastings, a daughter
of a neighbor, and Susie McCarty, a
nurse girl. Approaching the crossing
of the railroad, a freight train which
had been cut in two to allow vehicles to
drive In the psrk, occupied the near
track. Mr. White believing that every
thing was clear, and not being warned
by the signal msn, drove between the
halves of the . freight , train upon the
other track just in time to be struck by
the Erie passenger train No. 24 from
the west. Mr. White, his daughter
Lillian, aged 9, Hattie Hastings, aged 9,
and Susie McCarty, aged 9, were in
stantly killed. Mrs. White and a child
two years old each received fractures of
the skull and have been unconscious
since the accident. Mabel White, aged
7 years, escaped with serious injuries,
but will recover. The Bev. W. White
was a clergyman well known through
out the state. He graduated at Amherst
college and the New York Theological
seminary with high honors and bad
spent ten years In missionary work in
China. lie was at home on leave of ab
sence. Mrs. White was a lady whom
be met and married during his college
term in New York.
Hungarian Threaten the Megroe Who
Went to Work.
Hakrisbubo, Pa., July 28. The Steel
ton strikers to the numder of 2,000 turn
ed out, parading the principal streets
and halting near the works, where ad
dresses were made. The speakers coun
seled quietness and patience, and proph
esied victory for the men. Blast fur
nace No. 2 and No. 2 open hearth fur
nace went into operation. Both sides
are confident of victory.
The company on Sunday started up
No. 2 furnace, which had been banked,
and the men at work are principally
colored men. This has angered the
Hungarians and Polanders who worked
at the furnace, and they threaten to
overpower the deputy sheriffs and raid
the furnace. There was a report that
the Bessemer mill would be started, but
the management is yet undecided on
this. It is expected that at least 1,400
men will be at work, as the applications
for employment were numerous. The
men at the Lochiel works are still out,
the proprietors having refused to sign

Canadian Grain Shipped to Duluth.
Washington, July 23. The treasury
department is informed that large
quantities of grain from the province of
Manitoba are shipped via Duluth, Minn.,
under transit entries made for the pur
pose of facilitating the re-entry of the
grain into Canadian territory. It is
said that at the time of shipment from
Manitoba the destination of the grain is
unknown andean be determined only on
arrival at Duluth. The privilege Is de
sired of re-entering such grain at Du
luth for transportation and exportation
via New York and Boston in cases
where market Is found for the grain in
Europe. Assistant Secretary Spalding
says that after a full consideration of
the subject the department is of the
opinion that Canadian grain arriving at
Duluth in transit may be re entered at
that port for transportation and export
ation via any port on the Atlantic sea
board in the same manner as though im.
ported at Duluth directly from Canada-
The. Circuit Judgeship Appointment.
Washington, July 28. The papers
in the numerous applications and rec
ommendations for the nine circuit
judgeships have been arranged by the
department of justice, but will not be
forwarded to the president at Cape
May, as the president has intimated his
purpose not to take them up until after
his summer vacation. It is rumored
that three of the appointees will be
Democrats, but it is difficult to conceive
of such appointments being made by
General Harrison in any of the south
ern circuits except the southwestern
oue. lu that circuit there Is some
chance for Congressman D. B. Culber
son, of Texas. He was chairman of
the judiciary committee in the fiftieth
congress, and hi appointment has been
strongly pressed on the president by
leading men of both parties.

Topeka, Kan,, July 24. The Demo
cratic Press association of Kansas ia In
convention turn. Turn committee ap
pointed for the purpose presented an
address to the people at the evening
session. It says In part:
"We believe in abolishing the iniqui
tles'of class legislation; in tariff legisla
tion; in a return to the financial system
of the country practiced from its foun
dation to the year 1878; in the abolition
of the bankrupt system; in a vigorous,
wholesome control of the transportation
system of the country."
The address opposes the government
loaning money on products of the soil
on the ground that - the government
should not become a banker. It opposes
government purchase of railroads, but
fsvors legislative control of them and
opposes the proposition of the govern
ment to pnrchase surplus farm products
as unconstitutional. It denounces the
administration of President Harrison
and the appointment of W. W. Dudley
and the upholding of Senator Quay by
the senate. The McKlnley tariff law is
strongly denounced. The fusion with
the People's party is not endorsed or

A GIRL HORSE THIEF.
Tho Astonishing Solution of a Mys
tery is Missouri.
CAPT0BS IN A QUANDAEY.
Canadian Charged with at ordering Their
Oanghter Elliott Fennd On lit r
Bs-Troarer Molnsul Denied s
How TrlnlTb King Caae.
Aoixct, Mo., July The farmers
of this and adjoining countis have
been greatly troubled by horse thieves
for the last six months. The horse
were stolen and run out of the country,
and no sign of them or any suspicious
characters would be seen in the country.
The mystery has) been solved by th ar
rest of a 16-year old girl, who has been
working on tha farm of George Bran
digs, near the northern county line, and
who hat beet looked upon at a moat ex
emplary young lady. She wiia a church
member, and taught a class in the Sun
day school, and was quite a favorite of
the young men of the rtcinity. The
thefts became so frequent that the Asti
Horse Thief society determined to make
a systematic effort to catch the thief.
They established a system of patrols on
all the roads leading out of tha county,
and It was through this system that the
flrl was caught as the went along the
Igbway with a stolen horse.' She was
4fatt in bt?'9 c!oth!,'. ' !
The girl came to the "Bmndige farm
over a year ago and said she was from
Kansas. She said her parents were
dead. When caught she carried her
dress to a bundle. She was evidently
going to-meet some one who wonld take
the horse out of the country as she was
on the road leading to the state line.
The Anti-Horse Thief association is
now in a quandary about the girl, for
it does not like to send ber to the peni
tentiary, where shs will undoubtedly go
if she Is brought to trial, and it doe not
tee how it can let her go without com
Kninllng a felony.

Elliott pulled his Grand Army button

of weakening huut grew more re
vengeful and his face took on a
look of the wildest anger. Mrs, Elliott
did not shed a tear, but her excitement
was to great she probably could not re
alize at the time what the verdict
meant The jury have agreed that they
will never disc'? howthiy stood on
any of the ballots. Thus it will proba

The King Case.
Memphis, Tenn., July 28. Proceed
ings In the motion for a new trial in the
King murder case were resumed in the
criminal court. They were in the main
devoid of interest. The effort of the de
fense was to show that the jury had
been allowed too much liberty and their
minds had been made up before ever
bearing the evidence. After the exam
ination of several witnesses the defense
announced that two new and Important
witnesses had been discovered and asked
for time to summon them, as they were
not In tbe county. After considerable
argument tha court granted a contmu
