CASH REBATES ARE PAID. Result of laveatlgatloa la MlMorl, Kan lu, Nebraska. I-ewa an: Minnesota. Extending the Burlington Fight lag the Reading Deal. CiifCAOO, March 8. A moralng papr devotes two pages to the resnlta of an Investigation made by its representatives in Minnesota. Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, in regard to the workings of the interstate commerce law. The various interviews with shippers, rail road men and state officials indicate that violations of the law "are' more 'general and flagrant than has generally been supposed.,. Large shippers are favored against small 'ones at all commercial cen ters, sometimes by a system of cash re bates, sometimes by other devices ac complishing the same end. The con erosion is that the law is not only a dead letter throughout the west, but that it is a detriment to public interest because it has had the effect of mining whatever was gained by the old pooling system in the matter o. stability of rates. W. B. Morrison of the interstate com merce commission, said that further leg islation to amend the law will soon be introduced and the law made more effi cient. He does not think the violations are as numerous or widespread as has been made to appear in some quarters. Notwithstanding the reported bad condition of the country roads fen Illin ois, Iowa and Nebraska, there was a farther inorease in the volume of east hound traffic from Chicago last week. The total number of tons of dead freigl t carried eastward by all hues was 100,57 J, against 07,074 (luring the preceding week and 71,814 during the correspond ing week last year. Traffic Manager Basenhark of the Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas City road, has returned from a visit to the Missouri river points reached by that system, where he held conferences with whole sale merchants relative to giving them better terms and greater advantages in the matter of freight rates than they have heretofore had. The trouble be tween the Chicago west-bound roads having transmissouri lines of their own over the movement recently inaugurate 1 by the railroad commissioners of Kan as for a reduction of fifth-class rates in that state has induced the Maple Leaf people to favor a flat rate for the benefit of Kansas City, St. Joseph and Leaven worth jobbers. Extending tit. Burlington, ' Deadwood, S. D... March 8. Kilpet rick Bros. & Collins ''have been awarded the contract for au important extension of the Burlington's Black Hills road. .

H. F. Clark, chief bookkeeper for the contractors, is in the and states that from 3,000 to 5,000 men will be put at work at the grade within ten days. Completion of the extension will make the fourth railroad through the mining districts mentioned and will hasten the development of many valu able mines. Fighting tha Readlag Daal.

WAR IN THE SOUDAN. Tha Xew Khedive Tfllt Begla HU Belga by Attempting- to Recover the udaneae Umpire. Vienna, March 8. News from Egypt is to the effect that the new khedive in tends to begin his reign in a .brilliant way by recovering the Soudanese em pire which was lost to Egypt with the rebellion of the mahdi and the fall of Khaftoum. The latest .information from the Soudan indicates that an invasion properly organized and commanded, would not fail of success; that the people are ripe for 'a change and that the Egyptians . would be welcomed by the masses of the inhabitants as deliverers from anintoIerable tyranny. Darfour has almost been deserted by the dervishes, and the Bahrol-Ghazal province contains but a few of them. The revolt of the Shatuk tribe resulted in severe fighting, the dervishes losing several hundred men. Reinforcements have been seHt from Omdurman. Food throughout the Soudan is bountiful and cheap. Many tribes appear tired of war, and said they would Welcome tho return of Egyptian rule. The dervishes have a steamer at Fa shiado, ,bnt they do not, venture beyond a short distance from the Nile bank. There are no dervishes south of Gebel Reggai. A short time ago the Shilluks killed 300 dervishes at that place, and consequently reinforcements have been sent there from Omdurman. The Khe dive's visit to , the frontier last winter has produced a very favorable impres sion among the Soudan tribes. The der vishes still retain a monopoly of the trade in gum, ivory and feathers, which they sell at large profits to merchants who send a considerable proportion of the goods to Suakim. The invading troops will be commanded by British officers and will include, it is intended, some British Indian troops, and a large force of Soudanese, who were splendid fight ers for Gordon.

WAS READY FOR ANOTHER Immediately Afterwards a Marriage Ll eeaae Was Granted to EUlott Zobo rowskl and Margaret do Steurm. Tha Next the Programme. Sioux Falls, & D., March 8. Judge Aikens announced his decision in the fa mous De Steurs divorce case by granting the baroness a decree of absolute divorce and the custo dy of her minor child: The findings of the court were all against the defendant, not one of his points being sustained. The court held that the baron i. not. only deserted his wife, but treated her with extreme cruelty. He finds that the baron did at tempt to confine his wife', in an asylum without just cause, and that her nervous attack was undoubtedly due to the ex treme cruelty of the husband. In refer ring to the baron's attempt to besmirch his wife's character by ollogaig adultery, he stated that the allegations conld not be substantiated, and were, in his opin ion, entirely without foundation. Immediately aftfcr the decree of di vorce was filed a marriage license was issued by the clerk of the court which permitted the marriage of Elliott Zobo rowski and Margaret DeSteurs, the Jilaintiff. Zoborowskl is the party si eged to have been guilty of adultery with the baroness. The pair were united in marriage by Rev. J. A.Crnsean and they will leave in a day or two for a bridal tour through the south. This brings the whole trial to a cli max and will, no doubt, surprise the New York friends of both the bride and groom. Mr. Zoborowskl is a New Yorker of great wealth and owner of the Broadway theatre. He has been a con stant companion of the baroness through all her troubles and his friendship for her caused the sensational allegations on the part of the baron. - In conversation Mr. Zoborowskl said that he would return to New York in a short time and make that his future home. They had decided to be married at once, as that was their intention long before the baroness began her action for a divorce. He denounced as false and libelous the allegations made by the baron . and pointed to his marriage as proof of his assertion. . , : , , , , . , " Another IMvoree Caie In Dahota. Rapid City, March 8. Tha next South Dakota divorce case to attract attention ' will probably be that of WiHiams vs. Williams, the trial of which will commence in tho circuit court here Friday, The proceedings were insti tuted last August, the plaintiff, Wm.' Williams, having come here and bought property in May last. Up to that time, and np to the present time, according to the testimony of the defendant, he had been for years a prominent and wealthy shoe manufacturer and a resident of Rochester, N. Y. His complaint, in brief, alleges that the defendant denied him his rights as a husband: that she did so in consequence of being unable, after repeated efforts to convert him to the Catholic church, of which church she was a member, while he did not belong to any church. In her answer the defendant, Eliza T. Williams, alleges that they wore mar ried in 187? and lived together as hus band and wife until August 1S87; that there is no issue of said marriage; that in the last named year the plaintiff de serted her; that she has always beeu willing and anxious to live with plaint iff as his wife; that during the years 1887-91, at the Latta house in Charlotte. N. Y., and between October, 1890, and April. 1891, in Rochester. N. Y., the plaintiff was guilty of adultery. She alleges that the plaintiff has an income of over $10,000 per annum, and asks for $140 per month as temporary alimony and $3,000 to pay costs of suit.

' Boston, March 8. The new Wood- bridge gun being constructed at thi arsenet-at Watartown, will be com' pleted in about four months.' At pres ent the gun is little more than a steel tube 87 1 feet long, the diameter being 1 1 inches. The interior eventually will be bored te l'J, inches. The specialty of the Woodbridge gun consists in the wire wrapping. Around the steel tube are strips of steel like barrel staves, and miles or steel wire are wrapped around these. The steel staves are put in to equalize the pressure caused by the tight wrapping of the ire. The wire is 10-100 of an inch square, and it is capa ble of bearing a -tension of 200, 000 - pounds -r t0 tne square inch. The wrapping of the wire upon the tube is dona by a special wind ing machine, so as to nut the wire on at a great strain. Several miles have been wrapped already so thickly that the tube, several inches in thickness, is shrunk or pressed in until the diameter is reduced by 4.-100 of an Inch. The ob ject of putting the wire on so tightly is to develop the elastic resistance of tha tube. - - In the first trial with the gun it is likely ordinary powder will be used cal culated to throw a projectile weighing 550 pounds about twelve miles, and a distance of three of four miles with great accuracy,. With the new powders which produce less smoke, the projectile may be thrown fifteen miles. In either case the charge of powder will be about 870 down to 850 pounds. : The new gun will be rifled. ; THE RAUM INVESTIGATION Aitletaat Secretary; Chandler an tha 8 tend Congressman Springer Im proving II one Proceedings.

TO BE TRIED FOR MURDER. The Attempt te Railroad Dr. Seadder Inla aa Inaaae Aijraut Mlaeed la tha Bad. . CmcAflO, March 8. Contrary to gen eral expectation Dr. Scndder will bs tried in the criminal court on the charge of murder. The apparent attempt to railroad him into an asylum has been nipped in the bud. It was practically agreed by Judge Scales and State's At torney Longenecker that a blunder was made by the ponce In eunrmeriiig the prisoner to the deputy sheriff, who neld the insanity writ procured by the friends of the accused. It is the intention of the state's attorney to have the charge of insanity dismissed, therefore, and ar raign Dr. Soudder ou the original charge of murder. The insanity question must be incidental to a trial in the criminal court.

SAID T WAS MADE IN PRISON. A Womaa Who Was Caught with Coua terfeit Monejr Tell Her Story, Boston, March 8. About two weeks ago Jennie Bolan, with many aliases, was locked np at the West End police station in an intoxicated condition and with counterfeit money in her purse.

She took them out and left good money behind, which the prisoner alluded to could use to advant age. The prison was ransacked but not a mold or any evidence of counterfeiting was found. Warden Lovering said not a single bit of evidence was found against bis man, but it was thought bv some that in this way some convicts have obtained good money which they found convenient to use wLen they once got outside, and that possibly the two fellows who escaped are talis SUPpilOQV-'r"- .r.1 m"..w-wij(-satyr-a-.fffifc" The.

The Alliance demands the abolition ef "National banks as banks of issue." That is. It demands that tho government issue to the people money through some other channel than the national banks. Wbyf Because this is the most expensive method adopted by a civilised country. In this en lightened day no one disputes that our government has a right to issue money and to adopt a method of cir culating same. The present method is unwUe, because with the banks con trolling the circulating medium tha government has no power to help tha people in times of financial panica The banks become custodiaas of tha privileges of the government by tha express delegation of power over tha currency. - iHow do tha banks get this power and why don't everybody be. eome bankersP Tha national banking act provides that whan as many at II va persons to join themselves together and purchase bonds in small towns $50,000 nnd in larger ones $100,000 wsrth Ihcy may deposit those bonds with the secretary of tho treasury aad have issued to them W par cent of their foco value in national bank notos with which they can begin business as hankers and which they enn loan at 10 or S3 por cent It is the bank ers' money which moves overy crop. The speculator secures the banker by bill of lading and allows him to charge about 1 per cent for the usa of the money during tha few days it takes for him to got returns from your wheat. The speculator paid you just 1 per cent less for your wheat because of tba banker's exactions of him. so it is tho producer who pays tha fiddler after all.
