Clkvklaso, O., Deo. Sl.-The pro
visional committee of tho Non-Partisan
Women- Christian Temperance union
yesterday addressed the public.
The trouble between Its members ana
the leaders of the National Women's
Christian Temperance union, which cul
minated at the last convention in the
withdrawal of those delegates oppdsed
to an alliance with prohibition party
are discussed at length. The document
says:
Harmony teems Impossible. lteurcss
of our grievances was denied. Only one
resource was left, and that was to form
new organization, for the following
reasons;
"1. We believe the political policy ol
the National Women's Christian temper-
ance union wrong in spirit, contrary to
the letter and spirit of the original con
stitution. Illogical in its reasonings, in
consistent in its conclusions and exceed
ingly detrimental to the cause of tem
perance. Wn believe the work of Christian
temperance stands above and beyond the
lines of party or sect ana we cannui jui
low the lead of the National Women's
Christian Temperance union in pledging
our influence to any party. We must lie
free to call on the best men ot an panics
for help. We need and must have help
to make our work a success We must
have the influence of the press of the
nation, so far as that influence is on me
side of God and humanity, irrespective
of party lines. We must range under
our banners the ennsuan tenipcinueu
women of all sections of our nation,
which cannot be done by an organization
whoso sympathies and support are
pledged to a party.
"3. An increasingly large number of
women who have contributed money, in
fluence 'and years of hard self-denying
labor to build up -the National Woman's
Christian Temperance Lnlon loot tneir
influence is crippled and their consisten
cy questioned by the equivocal policy of
the national body, which avows its alle
giance to and boldly champions thecauso
of a political party while at the same
time it denies partisanship.
'i. The refusal of the national union
by an overwhelming majority to adopt
the non-partisan amendment to its con
stitution makes It Imperative for honest
non-partisan women to let the worm
understand that they will no longer re
main In its anomalous position, and since
the old organization will not right the
wrongs that have resulted irom us un
wise and unjust policy, but shows a de
termination to stamp out all honest
doubts In the minds of tho women In its
ranks and to ireat with unveiled con
tempt all who differ from the majority
n regard to methoas oi worK, tne ais-
senters must quietly yicici or witnaraw
n oomnanv with those of like faith ana
pursue the course that ?eems right and
wise.
5. The demand is also growing for a
national temperance society less com
plex in its aims and simple in its gov
ernment, which will worK in its organ
ized capacity for such objects only as
have a bearing on temperance reiorm.
"6. The unchristian treatment ac
orded to Christian women from year to
vear wno uarc to unci sunmuuui. m
these national assemolies not in harmony
with their fifteen policy emphasizes the
need of another organization.
The increasing impossibility ol
working harmoniously with the Women's
Christian Temperance union without the
sacrifice of their honest convictions and
self-respect or the alternative of leaving
the work altogether, wiilcn many cannot
do because their commission is from a
higher fsourso than tho national union,
demands a new organization, through
which thousands of women who will not
be compromised by the attitude of the
Woman's Christian Temperance nnion
and thousands who have not yet enlisted
may combine their effort8, and in unity
of spirit and bands of peace labor for tho
overthrow of the drink traffic. The
lamentable loss of moral power that has
resulted from the partisan altitude of the
national Woman's Christian Temperance
union may bo In a measure retrieved by
a society keening itself free from all par
ty entanglement; so freo that no political
vultures will ever hover over its conven
tions, hoping to bear away any influence
that will help them to places or power.
"We deslro to organize on a basis so
broad that prayer may be made for us
In all churches without tear or oaense
The consideration of the public Is asked,
its advice is sought and its co-operation
as greatly desired. e seek the prayer
ful aid of pastors of churches, superin
tendents of Sunday schools and Christian
workers in all fields. We do not propofe
to build our work on tho ruin of the old
but we hope to profit by tho experience
of the past
"We Invite correspondence. Let all
who are not interested In this national
government respond without delay,
any are ready to enlist under a non-par
tisan banner let them say so at once,
If any have a God fp-ied for us let them
mail it, as so many have done, that we
mav know wle hearts now (ill with
hone because of this rallying call.
"December 23, tho anniversary of the
crusade, we Invite our women to renew
their vows before God and solemnly
pledge before Him who knows our hearts
that hand to hand with simple trust in
our divine leader and with th::t ciurage
that overcomes all difficulties and knows
no defeats, wo will eck to stay this
deadly pestilence which cuts down the
great and gifted, as well as the low and
degraded, and makes tin) fairest spots
on earth darken with desolation, nor

FiiEMOST, Neb., Dec. 18. Additional
excitement and Interest has been given
to then Crowell murder case by the arrest
tif Herman Diers of Crowell, a hotel
keeper and merchant at that place, for
complicity in tho murder of Carl Piilsl
fer. The arrest was made by Sheriff
Mallon and was done so quietly that the
people of the little village knew nothing
of it until next (lav. When the news
was made, public great excitement fol
lowed. Tho prisoner was trough t to
Fremont and is now lodged In jail. The
officers and every one connected are
very close-mouthed and it Is ex
tremely difficult to obtain exact in
formation as to what evidenes there Is
that Diers was connected with the oaso
in any maimer, Mr. Diers, sr., of West
Point, father to the prisoner, came to
Fremont this morning to look after his
son's welfare. He Is very much wrought
up over the new turn taken In matter.
He states that he has been informed that
his sou's arrest was made on the alleged
grounds that he hired young Fnrst and
Shepard to kill Pulsifer; that the con
sideration was a suit of clothes and S2."
In advance and 81,000 after the murder
had been committed. He declares his
son innocent of the crime. He says ho
had no feelings against Pulsifer, but on
the contrary Pulsifer and Herman Diers
were good friends, and that the latter
ften took his meals at Herman s hotel
and borrowed money of him.
Tho prisoner took an active part In
the capture of the two murderers, but Is
not known to have displayed any over
weening deslro to effect their capture
hat would savor of suspicion, lie was
foreman of the coroner's Jury which sat
upon the body of Pulsifer. the only
thing certain at this time Is that he has
been arrested for complicity, which
charge, if true, would involvo him as an
Instigator of the plot. It is not deli
nltely known whether Furst and Shop-
hard have stated that they were hired
by Diers.
WisuisoTOM, Dec. 20.-Fifty Sioux
Indians attired in their store clothes and
resp'f tident In red flannel trimmings on
their hair and gorgeous handkerchiefs on
their necks, trod quietly into tho white
house on their soft buck-kin moccasin
shortly after i o'clock yesterday. They
were ahead of time, and Mood along the

Onorals Crook and Warner and Gover
nor Foster arrived. They had come lo
Washingten to appeal to the government
for better treatment on their re-rvai ions
in Dakota. In the ea-t room they were
arranged In a badly drawn semi-circle.
The president occupied a position In the
center alongside, oi uotenior r'.

his guardians. Once be broke away and
ran into the circle before (loners! Crook,
who was standing on the edge, could
catch him and drag him back.
General Warner first made a speech to
the president. He was Interpreter for
the benefit of the Indians for Louis
I'rimaux. He introduced .lolin ura.soi
Standing Rock agency. His remarks ,
were in his native tongue, lie reassured
the president, though the president did
not know it till the interpreter told him,
that this was not a scalping expedition,
but merely a friendly call, and his eyes
twinkled as he looked over Baby Mc
Kee, whoso bald head was covered by a
gandy cap In three colors, topped by a
tassel. His tribe, he continued, had
never been visited by such a good com
mission, so ready and willing to point
out matters to the Indians. His people
would like, amV.ng other things, a bound
ary lino for ther reservation and belter
schools for their children. When he
had come to the end of his speech he
glanced at his Interpreter and both
nodded. Thon John made a bow and
said, "Dat's all," and retreated to hl

to the appointment of a committee, of
Knights of Labor in 1887 to watch state

plalned that the committee was neglect
ing its duty and powderly asked him for

eidslatlve work and the committee and
said after his last letter Powderly circu
lated an infamous lie and thus
njured his (Callahan's) political
chances badly before the June
onvenllon this year to nominate
an assemblyman. Callahan complained
to Powderly thai an Injurious story had
been circulated and asked the publica
tion of his letter. Later he accused
Powderly of vilifying him by circulating
stories which hid to his defeat and de
lated If his letter had been published it
would have saved him, but Powderly
sacrificed him to save himself, as the
letter would have exposed Powderly's
treason to the Knights of Labor. Pow
derly published a full Statement of the
difficulty together with several of Calla

Labor, in August, JSS9, In which he as
serted his Innocence of the charge
brought by Callahan, and his surprise at
tho rash utterances of the man. Pow
