The Platte river, which is generally a sand bar at this season of the year, is filled with water to the banks.

None of the other candidates made a strong showing, though there was some opposition. A test vote came cm an amendment to the report of the committee on order of business offered by the anti-Estee men. The amend ment provided that the nominations for Justices of the Supreme bench should be made before that of Gov ernor. The Estee men opposed this and defeated the amendment by a vote of 47s to 347.

She had been a student at the Frenchman's school, and fell in love with her teacher. Around the latter clung the flavor of royalty. '1 Linking he was a bogus nobleman the bride's parents refused to have anything to do with him, and tried to make her give him up. She refused after he had as sured her he was of royal birth. He claims to have been a lieutenant in the French army, and was compelled to leave France to avoid disgrace over his failure to pay 6,030 frar.es lost at the gaming tables.

Among the passengers who arrived on tu- s'eamer Belgic from the Orient ! was Charles II. Cowan, ex-United Sta' s Ccnsul to M milla. Mr. Cowan has b-en in the Philippine Islands for th. last two years anu has just be-n re lieved from his oi'ioe. The Philippine liid3 ha v been the scene of much trouble for many year-. About two months ago there was an upns ng among the natives on the Island of Mindanao, w hich resulted in the maswt cre of the Spanish troops. One com pany of eighty men that held the fort in the principal seaport towu was over powered and the garrison were brutal ly murdered. Six thousand troops have been sent to the Mmdanao to check the revolt. The Spanish government," said Mr, Cowan, "has been trying manv years to subdue the natives of the Philippines, but they are nearly always in a state of revolt. The main cause of the dis turbance seems to be what they con sider an invasion of their religious rights. The taxes were to b paid on a certain day and on that day the na tives crowded into the town- They found that they far outnumbered the troops, and, at a preconcerted signal, made a descent on the fort. The troops had no chance with them at all and not one of the soldiers was spired. News of the uprising reached Manilla, and two nieu of-war were immediately dis patched to the scene. The Governor General went to the scene of the trouble in person, and took with him 6,000 native troops, all being officered by Spaniards. hen I left Manilla nothing had been heard from the ex pedition. It is pretty ueli understood that the troops have had a hard battle on their hands." Has a Shrewd Appearance. Jacksonville, 111., June 21. The police of this city have made an im portant arrest and one which no doubt will result in landing an old offender behind the bars. A man called at the stove and furlnture house of W, B. Johnson & sous, of this city, and said he had a relative about to be married and he wanted to fit him up for house keeping, and proceeded to select I3S'). worth of goods, which he ordered to be shipped to Harry, Pike county, June 28, at the same time tendering a 8000 draft on the First National of Haskell, Texas, and in a nonchalant in nner asKing for the change. From the first the firm rather suspected the man and fortunately one or them bad been read ing the dispatch from Albany, Texas, telling of the forgenei which had been attempted on the bank at Haskell. They maiie an excuse to go to the bank for the money and while out tele phoned for the police and had the man taken in. lie gave his name as Sam Webb and insisted he was all right. He is rather below medium height and wears a blonde mustache and side whiskers and has a shrewd; appear ance. Butter Manipulated. Ackora, 111., June 21. The jury in the celebrated case of Potter vs. Sapds, which has been in progress in the Circuit Court for nearly two weeks, brought in a verdict allowing plaintiff 14,000. The seusational features of the case were the relations in regard to the inside workings of the Elgin Board of Trade, which has controlled the market price of butter in the Northwest for several years. The case was a suit brought by Charles Potter against O. Sands, of Chicago, to recover commis sions alleged to be due him from Sands for services in manipulating the Elgin Hoard of Trade in Sands' interest, the latter having control of twenty-six creameries in this region. In three years Potter bad so successfully mani pulated the board that be had earned 420,000 in commissions. In the mean time Sands was adjudged insane and committed to an asylum. The defense tritd to show that Sands was insane when the contract was made, but it was shown that the insanity was feigned. In the evidence it was shown that a few producers got together each week and practically agreed what should be the market price of butter. Another Deaperale Gang. Tahlequah, I. T., June 21 A des perate battle took place Sunday night on the road between Tahlequah and Wagoner between Deputy Sheriff Gourd and the Cook gang of outlaws.

Niaoara Falls -v- V., June 20. What is judged uy railroad men to be an exceedingly clever attempt to swindle Western excursionists coming to Niagara Fails has just come to light. Three handsomely gotten up mileage books have been issued by the "New York and Niagara Falls Puillway Com pany," that have every indication of being genuine. There is no such rail way, and these books have probably been printed by sharpers to sell to Westerners coming to the Falls and de siring to go further east. The book in the possession of the railroad ruthori ties bears the number .V)o. It has all the statements common to mileage books in form, "book A" and bears the autographic signature of F. A. Sims, general passenger ai;ent. In the year date in the margin of the cover, 1894 is the first year given. There is a place on the front of the cover tor the issuing agent to sign his name. Aline across the top of the cover reads, "Printed by V. H. Campbell, 23 Union square, New York city." On the rubber ban:" that holds the mileage close to the cover is a neat celluloid slip bearing the words, "Manufactured by William H. Camp bell, 23 Union Square, New York city, patenteuted June 13, 1V.I3." Sued for Alimony. Clkvklaxd, Ohio, June 20. Will lam H.

Last Thursday Mrs. Lawrence asserts, she was out driving with her husband, and because she would not hold the hors in front of a saloon while he went in and took a drink he swore at her so terribly that she left the vehicle. He followed her in the buggy, swearing at and abusing ber, and at Erie street deliberately tried to run over her. On Mursion street he jumped out of ttie buggy and began to drag her along the street, thus attracting a crowd. As a result of this they separated. Lawrence is worth 12 "XD.C0. Hhot Ills Hlotrr.

Their state ments, however, are not veruied. It is state! that when Vaughan was dis chHrged a year ago for alleged incom petency he threatened to kill swain and that he had rei-eated the threat several times.

Vaughan is single and lived at 1339 Mid'lKan avenue, lie was engaged in business with Swain for seven years and it is admitted there had been busl ness troubles. Npwi front Samoa. Washington, June 19. Private ad vices received by naval officers from Apia, Samoa, indicate that ttie present state of affairs in that distracted part of the world is mainly due to German Intrigue and that, the display of the ; American flag more prominently in the I island might have a mollifying In- j liiience. It is s'a'ed in letter received that the Germans are supplying arms, j as well as powder and snot, to the op- j posing natives, and in this way the tin- j fortrnate internecine wars are main- i talned. While the conilicts between small parties of natives are frequent occurrences, little life Is lost and the troubles have so far happened at some distance from Apia. A letter from a nrominent British resident of the island is patent. The local laws render it lm possible for any foreigner to take land already occupied by natives and under the tripartite agreement Germans can not force Samoans to give up their land. The Germans are Interested In increasing their acreage ot sugar, etc, but as the native Samoans will not labor the German planters have to get laborers from the islands, and through these laborers ammunition reaches the Samoans, petty quarrtls are stirred up and native Samoans are encouraged to gradually exterminate each other. Un til American and British planters be come as numerous as the Germans there is little or no likelihood that the gradual absorption of all the good lands of the islands by Germans will be curtailed. The complication into which the United Slates has been drawn seems profitless to this writer and he confesses that even Great Britain has little or nothing to gain by continuing the triple agreement.
