PRINCESS COLONNA TALK3.

New Yokk, Feb. 57. IJefore the
Frineess Colonna left New York for
San Francisco she granted an Inter
view to the editor of L Kco d' Italia.
She haul htie was indignant at the falsi
ty of some of the aeecusations against
the prince when snme of the
papers said ths prince was o e of the
most danperoiiK gamblers, autl a cheat.
They mistook him for Lainberta Col

in Koine for cheating. However, she
said, the prince in u man of terribly
"One nl.'ht in Paris," said bhe, "be
eati I refiihed tjask my step-father,
Mr. Miickay, for more money for him,
he threw a bottle of wine at nie, and it
was only by miracle that I escaped
Wing1 struck. It is not true that Mr.
Maekay sent us S!,(M(),0iO to t:iy the
prince" debts, but it is true Mr.Mackay
often sent us large sums to pay various
debts of the prince. It in also nntrue
that I was obliged to sell my wedding
presents to pay his debts, but I was
forced to pawn my jewels several
times. Like all professional gamblers,
my husband hud his good und bad
days at the gaming table, but when
he won he wasted large sums of
money. 'limit Is not all I have
against him. His behavior toward me
was unbearably insulting. I remained
with l ira eight years in the hope there
would be some change, as I wanted to
repay the many kindly acts of my
uncle, the Prince fitigliant Finally I
could bear it no longer. I shall start
at once for Kan Francisco, where I
shall begin proceedings to obtain the
annulment of my marriage."

DYNAMITE PROOF SAFES.
Wells-Fargo Express Company Will lload
OS Train Ilebbert Hereafter.
San Fbancisoo, Feb. 27. The Wells
Fargo express company, profiting from
its recent experiences with train rob
bers, has about decided to adopt the
plan now in operation on the Santa
Fe system in order to discourage
the holding up of trains and looting
of express boxes. Heavy burglar
proof safes will be placed in
each express car for the safe keeping
of all valuables and money in transit
and to protect express messengers
and keep robbers out of the safes.
The combination will be known only
to the company's agents at stations
along the road. It will be the duty
of agents to put their packages into
the safes on trains and to take there
from such packages as the express
managers notify them are in the safes
to be delivered to them. The safes
will bo dynamite proof.

OUTSIDE THE GATES.
The crowd was gar. elated.
When just outside the gate.
A won-an stood and waited
As one. with do hope watt
This side the gales of Heaven -With
bowed and drooplnjc head,
As by some spirit carven
For human woes that plead.
I noted not so early
That poor and plain she dressefl ;
But saw tbe wee sweat girlie
That cooed upon her breast;
And that she came from Rhlnelsnd
A type we see out West
From bowered homes of Vineland,
Of Hespers fruit In quest.
Such mother-love shone 'round her,
So oft the babe she'd kiss,
Love ha but lately feund her
I thought: then asked, "Is this
The first one of your home Joys,
Tbe tiny Wllheliuine?"
"Nay, nay, we have three little boys,"
Bald this throneless Kalnerm !
And shall you take tbe baby
Among the seething crowd
Within the gates? -O lady."
And lower still she bowed
"I go not to the great Fair;
No work my husband get,
My little children's feet are bare
And summer suns have set:"
"For week Hans has been trampiug
The city streets about:
While day and night we're camping
Tbe shel terlng walls wi thout.
It pains me for tbe Kinder
If work h does not find;
1 weeps me for the Winter
Until mine eyes are blind."

About Shipping; Grain.
Chicago, 111., Feb. 19, 1S9S.
If I had grain in Nebraska at the pres
ent, I would not ship it at all into this
market, neither sell it unless I had to;
but would take care of it, and hold for
a better market. Meantime, there is
plenty of time to correspond with tome
good commission man and watch the
market and post upon the requirements,
and be ready to market when I felt that
I could afford it. The market is now
perfectly demoralized. May wheat has
declined 10 cents in about. 30 days, and
on the 16th It reached 5" J cents here,
the lowest prbe ever known for May
wheat in the whole history of the Board
of Trade. But it is liable, ye?, even
likely, to go bick up within the next 60
Jays. You see, here Is how they run
things hare. ThKe 'Boars here and
elsewhere, drown the market down by
Hoods of fic-itious deals In wheat that
they never expect to deliver. Then as
$300 00 will margin up a deal in 10,000
bushels of May wheat, those who have
plenty of money to pocket their trade
ia caao of further decline, can buy 10,000
bushels at 58 cents with f 300 00. Then,
as a raise of one cent makes them $10,000,
when it reaches 61 cents they have just
doubled their money, and can sell out
their deal and have $600.00, with which
in like manner tbey can now buy 20,000
bushels, and when it reaches 64 cents
they bava doubled their money again,
and can sell out and have $1200.00 with
which they can buy 40,000 bushels; and
when It reaches G7 cents, which means
less than 50 cents at home in many par's
of Nebraska, they have doubled their
money again, and can sell it out for
$24,000, which is over $20,000 clean profit
on an investment of $300 00, possible to
them ia 00 dy, and ready to repeat the
operation if an opportunity offers. By
this time the farmers in various states
will have learned that we are having a
boom on wheat, and they begin to pour
in their orders, usually increasing as it
gets the higher, and some one, we will
say who has saved up $900.00 can buy
about 300,000 bushels if be likes, which
he knows will make him a nice little
Bum even II sola at io cents, anu n one
can be perfeotly sure It will not reach
85 cents, or even more. But alas! about
now a gevernment report,or a foreign c
ble.or something else stops the advance,
and turns it downward again. And,
strange as it may seem for me to say it,
so peculiar are the movements of the
market that ecarce any man can tell
whether it is on the rise or the decline,
until it is balow his figures. He now
hates to sell at a loss, and hoping that
the decline is but temporary, .he pro
tects his trades by more margins until
the prloe gradually Bubaldes to about 80
cents again, when he, having mortgag
ed house and home and everything ehe
to get money, finds himself called on
for more mirglas, which he c tn no'
possibly raise, and his trades are closed
out on exhausted margins at a lo.-s of
about $2000.0' while the world moves
on in ab-'nt the same old way, in these
Ddmo-Ropubllcan good times we are
having now. See? Keep, yours,
G. W. Sharp.
St. Joseph Mo., Feb. 20 One of the
most severe stor.', periods of recent
years will prevail over the United States
and Canada from March 7th to April
13th. In many parts of the country
unusually heavy rains or snows will fall
and floods may be expected. Seven
principal low barometers will cross the
continent during the period. Tornadoes
may be expected in parts frequented by
those destroyers. Temperature will go
to great c xtrcmos and frosts will injure
earlr uihjos far southward. Electric
storm i will precede and severe cold
wave follow some of these laws. Those
crossing the continent March 7 to 11,

X Great Alliance Ilevlval la Farnas
Beaver Citt, Feb. 13, 1894.
Editor Aluance-Is dependent:
As I have not seen any news from this
part of the state in your valuable paper
I will give yon and your readers some
idea of what we are doing in Furnas
county, at the meeting at Hastings it
was thought best to have a winter cam
paign. The central committee of Fur
nas county was very fortunate in pro
curing the services of L. B. Irwin of
Orleans, Harlan county, Nebraska. He
came into tbe county last January, and
was about one month speaking to tbe
people. J. N. Thompson, the organizer
and lecturer for Furnas county, accom-
palned Mr. Irwin while speaking in
our county. The good thai has been
done by Irwin and Thompson through
out the county, is bow showing itself.
New Alliances are being organized,
and old ones revived. All over the
county J. N. Thompson is now glvlDg
the secret work to new Alliances in the
county. I have been called to assist to
give tbe secret work in other parts of
the county. The revival of the Alli
ance in this county is due to L, B.Ir win 's
mid winter campaign. Mr. Irwin is
not only an able speaker, but he has
convincing proof that the United States
Is in the haads of the money pewer of
Europe, by the National Banking Sys
tem. Mr. Irwin's arguments in a politi
cal revival are of such evident truth
that many in the old parties are study
ing and talking about tbe meetings and
the low price of grain. Credit is due
the central committee of Furnas county
for the able manner in which it planned
and conducted Mr. Irwin's winter cam
paign. I wish - such a revival as we
have had could be duplicated in every
county in the state and nation.

Senator W. F. Dale, President N. F.
A. & I U. was with us at this place on
the 10th, and to ray that his meeting
was a grand success would be putting it
mildly. Ue spoke for an hour and three
quarters aod held his audience spell
bound all the time. His pleasant
gentlemanly and scholarly address
completely captivated every one, even
the business men of the town went away
with something to think about for days
to come, in fact the next day. Dale's
speech was all the talk in the stores
and on the streets. The meeting at
Cly Center was not bo large, owing to
the fact that the meeting was poorly
advertised. The Alliance work will be
pushed forward with new zeal in this
county, and the education of the people
upon the great question of how to con
duct a government in the Interest of all
the people, will be studied as never be

Wauneta, Neb,, Feb. 20, 1894.
Dear Sir: Hoq. John Powers spoke
to a select audience yesterday at Benk
leman. He handled his topics nice a
man that understood his business. It
was expressed by all that heard him,
that it was one of the ablest speeches of
the kind they ever heard. Tbe Alii
ance placed the right mtn In the right
p'ace when they elected him lecturer;
lor such speeches as he made yesterday
will do more towards reorganiz ng ttie
Alliances than any other talk that could
bs brought before the people.
Yours for reform,

has fifty or more members in this com
pany they may withdraw without fee
for the purpose of organizing a local

Tbe Alliance Will Ra Organize.
There was a lare attendance of far
mers representing almost every pre
cinct in the county at Grant, Saturday,
in answer to the call of the Perkins
County Alliance, and much interest was
manifested In the deliberations of tbe
convention. The result of the meeting
was that it was unanimously decided to
re-organize the county Alliance.
Tbe meeting was called to order by
President Pierson, with T. A. Clugston
secretary. Mr. Pierson outlined the
work of tbe convention, and was fol
lowed by J. T. Montgomery. B. S. Scott,
J. A. George, It. S. Carothers, F. A.
Hincs, H, C. Binns, T. A. Clugston and
others, who discussed the causes which
lead to the disintegration of the county
alliance, and each offered valuable
suggestions as to the proper method of
proceed ura in re-organizlng the Alli
ance. After this discussion a motion was
adopted that the county Alliance be re
organized. It was voted that all the
subordinate Alliances which report to
secretary by March 30 be re-instated
without the payment of any back dues.
The meeting then adjourned to March
10, when the state Alliance lecturer !s
expected to be present and the Alliance
reorganized. Sub-Alliances are re
quested by the secretary to have tbeir
reports ready at that time so that the
re organization can be completed and
officers elected at this meeting. Five
sub-Alliances were representyd by reg
ularly elected delegates. They were
Pioneer No. 714, Green Valley No 879,
Venango No. 730, Yankee No. 936, 939,
Alliance No. 423, and the following
Alliances were represented by members:
Atlas No. 1,565, Perkins No. 718, ELde
No. 2,090 and Green Valley, No. 1,327.
Secretary Clugston requests all county
papers friendly to the Alliance, to make
mention of the next meeting ef the
county Alliance on March 10, thereby
assisting the secretary. Perkins Co.
