the past year in the history of the alii

convention and its platform.
He adhered to the doctrine that the

needs a mauual or text oook to secure

prove that the killing of the girl was

Ponca, Neb., Dec. 20. The Ponca
Waterworks have been the source of
considerable annoyance to both the
contractors and the citizens. When
first put in operation it was found thai
almost every joint of the piping leaked
and would have to be soldered. After
this was done the cement in the reser

necessary. This was put on and pump

morning, when the wall of the reser

the water went tearing down the street.

visited by burglars Sunday night and
everything plundered. The thieves
forced a window in the south end of

It is thought the thieves are the same
who robbed the postofflce when it oc
pied the building and that they had not
learned of the removal.

Topeka. Kan., Dec. 21. The Popu
list editors who are in Topeka to-day
to attend the meeting of the Reform
press association, show lively interest
in Lhe house and if their opinions are
the reflex of local sentiments in vari
ous parts of the state, ther seems t.

conference this morning they had un

the supreme court in the contested
cases. The first case will
probably be that of Rice against

county case. H.The .exact nature of
the proceedings is not " kftjwa, but
among tne aeien iants to be nameu is
the state board of canvassers, and the
objijet is believed to be to hang up all
the contested members so as to jve
the Populists a majority.
Regardless of the announce... it
that Railroad Commissioners Anthony

the executive council cannot turn
them out of office before their terms
expire, the Populists are making prep

their places to men of their own faith.

pearing to bs very much agitated and
distressed to induce soma kindly dis

In response she indulges i a fiood of
tears, hugging the boy und ining a
sad story of having lobt U.o little
money that was to have taken hor
home to her husband, generally about
100 miles away. She weeps much and
tells her tale so cleverly that she never
fails to get a subscription taken up for
her. In Chicago she worked her

Robbery and Arson.
Asinwall, Neb., Dec. 19. The
parties who robbed and burned Dr.
Candy's store at this place on the night
of November 26 have been arrested
and are now in jail at Auburn. Their
names are Roblson, John Ebbs and
William Corey, living near Hillsdale.
All of them were participating In a re
vival meeting at the time and have
taken great interest in church matters
during the winter. They went direct
from church and robbed and burned
the building. They induced a man to
decoy Mr. Hall, who resided in the
store, out coon hunting on the night
occurred, and then did the job. A
quantity of goods was found in Robi
son's possession and when confronted
and asked to explain he broke down
and gave the thing away, implicating
with him the other two. The loss
from the fire to Gandy was $7,500, to
Hall $300 and to the United States in
stamps and money about $300. Rob

Six Thousand Acres.
Gerino, Neb., Dec. 19. Six thou
sand acres of land, almost wholly sit
uated under the Mitchell irrigating
canal in this county, and representing
a value of anywhere from fifty to sixty
thousand dollars, was transferred this

deed now on record in the clerk's office
of Scott's Bluff county is from the re
ceiver of the defunct Union Cattle
company to the Goshsn Hole Irrigat
ing company, the latter comprising the
itockholders, for the most part, of the
old company. This takes the fine
body of real estate out of litigation in
which it has been complicated for sev
eral years and it will probably bp
subject to sale and improvement.
A HARD-WORKING KING.

the following as the daily routine of

and this meal at which the king is
present to entertaiu his guests and
not to eat generally lasts until 9:S0.
At 10 the king, as a rule, goes to the
opera, where he remains for an hour.
At 11 he goes back to his cabinet,
and until 1. when he retires, is busy
with his afternoon correspondence.
At Manza near Milan, where he

Not to Diopluoe tbe Bill.
Washington, Dec. 21. After the
routine morning business was disposed
of in the senate to-day and the army
appropriation bill had been referred to
the committee on appropriations, a
large petition was presented by Mr.
Dawes signed by Westerners, asking for
the appointment of a committee of
senators to investigate the combine of
Minneapolis millers and elevator own

the depression of the wheat market
and praying that no action be taken
on the anti-option bill until such
committee should have made its re
port Mr. wasnourne remarked that a
million of such petitions had been
circulated all of them originating in
the Chicago board of trade. This
should go to the committee on ag
riculture, where all that rubbish had
gone. Mr. Dawes remarked that all
the petitions on the other side were
said to have been manufactured in
Washington. The petition was re
ferred to the committee on agricul
ture. The house concurrent resolution for

Osceola, Neb., Dec. 19. The board

Washinotok, Dec. 21 The report
of the interstate commerce commission
for the year ended November 30, waa
yesterday transmitted to congress. It
opens with a review ef the reasons
which Induced the passage ef the act
to regulate commerce and which are
given in view of the resnlt rendered in
auujiuiBperiiig ine act, ana necessity
for amendments which experience has
disclosed. It states that the commis

that many railroad managers of the
highest standing now concede the
necessity of government regulation
and avow themselves in favor of
farther enactments that will make
the regulation effective.
The late decision of Justice Brewer
in the circuit court of appeals, decid
ing a long and short haul case is dis
cussed and the dictnms of opinion,
that the total joint rate of two roads
is over an independent line from , the
lines formed by either road and not to
be considered in determining the local
rate of either road and therefore
may be even less than the interme
diate or local rate, is shown
to be without foundation either
in the debates in congress, the prac
tice of carriers since the law was.
passed, or the rulings of the commis
tiion, which, nevertheless are cited in
that opinion as supporting a new
theory. To protect all intermediate
localities and Interests from the dis
astrous effects of this judicial inter
pretation congress is earnestly urged
to take such immediate action as will
give legislative construction to the
word "line" in the statute.
Several amendments recommended
by the commission for the purpose of
strengthening the law are discussed.
Regarding the proposed amendment by
which pooling is to be permitted; the
"The attempt to secure the publio
from discrimination, extortion, favorit
ism, undue preference and undue preju
dice, and to secure to every citizen just,
and equitable rates and equal and ex
act treatment in all transportation
matters, is the very essence, spirit and
purpose of the law and it would be
vain to protect carriers from competi
tive attacks upon each other if the gen
eral public can not be protected
from the greater evils above
enumerated. If the 1 law Is to
be amended the two classes of
&nAidr??nts should go hand in hand
until the law is made . strong, as its
framers intended in the matter of fair
and equitable rates, fah treatment
and suppression of favoritism. It is
idle to seek to protect carriers'hoso
immunity, under authoritative c6b
structions of the law from restrictions
intended by congress, seems one of the
remarkable facts in current history."
