Suicide or Murder.
ulxcOLN, Oct. 24. A death which is
surrounded by some suspicious circum
stances and which was peculiarly sad,
in many respects, occurred yesterday
afternoon about 5:30 o'clock. Mrs.
Orlo H. Brockway, wife of a 'traveling
man. was found at her home, 216 South
Sixteenth street, with a bullet hole in
her side. Several theories are advanced
as to the manner of her death, her hus
band, who was the only one with her
at the timi, claims she committed
suicide, and she left a letter to her
sister, which the coroner says does not
fully establish the theory of suicide.
Brockway was arrested and placed at
a hotel in oharge of an officer. Brock
way is a traveling man for an Omaha
firm and had once taken the Kecty
cure but took to drink again.

Th y Threaten to Strike Manager
Frey says They Will get the r Pay.
Hard to Kaise Money.
F ExirorsA, Kan., Oct 24. Invcs'iga
tion into the reports of a probable
strike on the Santa Fe system next
Saturday show that a committee rep
resenting tho Brotherhood of Train
men was in Topeka last Wednesday
and Thursday and to Superintendent
Nickeron and General Manager Frey
made a demand that September wages
be paid by October 28, and that here
after wages be regularly paid on the
20th of each succeeding month. Tbe
committee informed the otlicials that
this h as tbe ultimatum of the order,
and if not complied with by the com
pany a general strike of all the em
ployes, operators, etc., would bo
ordered ou the Chicago, East, Middle,
West. South, Pan Handle, New Mexico
and Ilio Grande divisions.
A prominent otlicial and employe at
the Santa Fe ollices bVe said to-day:
"The rumor is correct and I guess
that it is now an open secret, while it
has been the intention of the order to
keep everything from the public as
yet The local orders along the en
tire system have been holding meet
ings during the past week discussing
the matter and the odicials of the
road now have our ultimatum. Every
employe on the entire system
has agreed to stand up to tho
conditions of the demand and
will undoubtedly walk out Saturday
unless the wages be paid or some defi
nite promise of payment within a few
days of that date be made. It is said
that Nickerson first laughed at the
committee but now sees the serious
ness and is in communication with
Last month's wages were about a
month delayed and the raerchmts
hero refuse to give tho men credit over
one month so that a delay in payment
is a very serious matter for them,
The General Manager Makes a State
ment of the Situation of Offices.
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 24. General
Man 'ger J. J. Frey of the Santa Fe
system said this afternoon concerning
the report that the company's em
ployes had threatened to strike unless
paid their September earnings at once:
"It is true that some of our employes
at various points have called and dis
cussed the irregularity of our pay
days since the financial stringency in
the country set in. Some of these
meetings have resulted in formal
demands that we pay September
by Saturday and that in the
event of our failure to corntdy
there will be a general strike on the
system. One meeting held at Argen
tine lust night adopted a resolution
calling upon us to pay the men there
by fi o'clock to-night and promised a
strike if we failed. I received this
demand at lOo'cloek this forenoon and
have just telegraphed a reply to the
master mechanic there and directed
to read it to the men. This letter bus
b'.-en wired to all general and division
sujerint.cudcuU on the system. I ad
l'.nt that our euioloyes have cause for
'oirilaiut. They must meet their
liv'.nsr 1 rcpenses, and unless tho money
in- iiu-Liu-oining regularly t lie biiop

That, is human nature the world over.

as we used to, to meet an emergency
of this kind; money is too closely
hoarded. i!ut the company will pay
as I promise and I hope onr employes
will not be so foolish as to cause a
sti iiie j. st now when wo arc getting
back to easier times. Business men
and merchants generally ought to un

r CLEVELAND'S FINANCES.
The President Worth )250,000 1-eaa Than
When Ha Was Inaugurated.
i tw 10KK. uct s nen it was
first rumored among a limited class of
persons in New York that Grover
Cleveland's personal pecuniary affairs
were not in a flourishing condition
there was general incredulity. When
Mr. Cleveland was inaugurated he
wa worth over his liabilities, about
$500,000; less than that sum rather
than more. This consisted of real
estate unincumbered; a bank account
amounting on March 2 to some $4,000;
stock in a street railway, and a snug
sum, 6tated to be $00,000, invested in
bond and mortgage in New York and
Shortly after Mr. Cleveland's elec
tlon he changed entirely the nature of
his investments. No considerable
amount of his fortune was so placed
that it might be affected by his of
ficial actions. In order to avoid even
the appearance of evil the president
elect had all his securities disposed of,
aud the proceeds invested in such a
manner that no oflieia) policies of his
could cither increase or decrease their
value. This was simply following a
precedent set, by all chief magistrates,
President Harrison having done a
similar thing shortly before his inaug
uration. But when the cares of his office
began to weigh upon Mr. Cleveland ho
found it entirely impossible to attend
to his personal affairs. The real estate,
for lack of management, yielded no
revenue, and tho stocks were not hold
ing their own. The president never
owes much money $10,000 would pay
his debts and more almost any time
but the scale upon which he lives and
the losses he sustained through his
investments have left hlra poorer by a
good deal than when ho entered the
White house last March. It is stated
upon an authority which leaves tho
assertion open to no dispute that Mr.
Cleveland is worth to-dav barely $'.'50.
000, and his salary is being spent as
fast as it comes in.

The President Clearly States His Position
in the Matter He is Opposed to
Making it a Party Issue.
Wants Republicans to Have a Hand.
WABrrrsoTOw, Oct 24. Those wht
were eipectlng to see the Democratic
compromise bill presented in the sen
ate this morning and speedl y passed
through that body, found when the)
senate met at 10 o'clock that they
were doomed to disappointment The
opinion Is now very general among
senators who will discuss the question
at all that the bill over which certain
Damocratlo senators were so sanguine
Saturday will never be introduced la
The reason for this change in the
situation is that the compromisers
have been unable to get a sufficient
Dumber of pledgea to guarantee tho
tassage of the bill in case it should be
n trod need and ttiey have said front
tho beginning that they would brinj
in no bill unless its passage co uld bo
assured before its introduction.
Statements diffor aa to the exact
cumber of Democratic) senators who
have signed the agreement, but tho
best authority obtainable places tho
number at thirty-cine, or four less
than a majority. The other Demo
crats refuse positively to sign. These)
ere said to be Vilas and Mitchell of
Wisoonsin, McPherson of New Jersey,
Caffrey of Louisiana, Voorhees of In
diana and Hill of New York.
The members of the steering com
mitteo hare made individual appeals
to a great many Republican senators,
but have been rebuffed alike by re
peal aud silver aenatora.
The situation is puzzling to the
Democratic senatorial managers and
they seem quite at sea as to what to
undertake next They have not yet
abandoued all efforts to bring the sen
ators who have so far refused to put
their signatures to the agreement to
see that it is the best thing to do. It
is also understood that they are still
seeking to secure the approval of the)
president, without whose acquiescence
they cannot accomplish anything.
A publio man who saw tho president
last evening Bays: "The president is
Indignant because of the situation.
He does not favor the compromise; ho
is opposed to postponing the date for
repeal; he wishes a vote and thinks
that one can be secured on uncondi
tional repeal. He does not think that
any compromise ought to bo '
proposed which is not ao
ceptable to the Republicans. lie
says that the Republicans have acted
in a manly way, have been consistent
with their arguments, have dona
nothing to delay a vote or to appeal
to party prejudice or make party capl
Lai; that they have treated the sub
jectin a non-partisan, patriotic man
ner; that if there is to be a compro
mise, it shonld bo one es to which
they should bo consulted and of which
they can approve; that it is not right
to bring in a measure which is framed
and approved by Deaioerats only, tho
avowed purpose of which is to make
parly capital. Moreover, tho
president created the improssiort
if rmvoiic in his cabinet had claimed
Id .peak for him and to say tint he
tvouid approvo the compromise which
h j bcrn proposed, the statement was
n.vlo without authority. Tho presi
dent did not say ho would not permit
IU: compromise to bo a law without
b'.;i signature, if it should pass the
t -. o houses, but he did say very era
p'.wilicallv that he is opposed to it, for
the reasons above sUt'd.;'
