CapUio Dreyfus the famous prisoner of devils island will after an ab
sence of three years embrace his family on Saturday of this week. His
military rank bus been restored to him lending his new trial.
Senators Depew of Now York and Markus A. Hannaof Ohio declare that
IrusU reduces the price of manufactured articles to the purchaser, and the
same time Mr. llanna has given tho people of the country to understand
that the next national republican convection will declare against the
trusts. LVnt that consistenev?
At last Nebraska is to have an executive mansion. The P. K. Thomp
son mansion has lie n purchased at a cost of 20,000 including furniture.
Feveral other offers were liein considered hut on last Sunday a deal wns

state. It is in tho immediate vicinity of the stale house just across
Congressman. Hit-hard Parks Bland, the jreat free Silver leader and
Democrat of the 8th Missouri, district, died at his home last Thursday
. morning at Lebanon, Sin., at 4:00 a. m. This, clows tho career of one of
the most prominent political leaders of the Democratic party in his slate
if not in the nation. The party in funeral will morn hid untimely taking
u way. Whatever else may 1 said relative to Mr Bland's public and priv
itsd character, it must ha admitted by friend an l foe alike that he lias al
ways been honest anil sincere in his public life. Mr. Bland has served al
most 28 years in the lower house of Congress, it is safe to say it will bo
hard to llnd another man in the 8th Missouri district that will fill his place
in the national house with s much credit to himself and his constituency

In Marsteller Bros store
Last Friday morning'.
THEY SECURE ".ior fO DOLLARS IS CASH AND $1,300 flORTf
OF VALUABLE PAMIRS.
About 2 o'clock last Friday morning burglars effected an entrance
to tho Marsteller Uros., store from tho rear, through the window, and
blew open their safe, securing about ?75 in money and valuable pajwrs
estimated at fl ,500. They succeded in getting; away without leaving any
clue as to their identity, or the direction they look, in their escape from
The burglars were, without doubt professionals at the business from
the nppeurance of the work done on the safe. They first took a wrench, or
something of the kind and twisted ofT the bundle- or knob thus providing an
opening in which they fioured into tho opseiture enough nitroglycerine or
soon other powerful explosive to blow open the safe. 1'rolm.bly, the time
required in doing the work from the time they entered the building until
they left did not exceed half or throe quarters of an hour.
Tho report was heard distinctly by several people living in c'ote prox
imity to the store. P. B. Bigelow, and wife who live in the rooms back of
the "candy snap" heard the report of the explosion quite forcibly and Mr.
Blfelow jumed out of bed and went to the window, claims he saw otio or
two flashenof lignt throught the window in tho store. The alarm was
flnnlly given, but too late to apprehend the safe crackem, Sheriff Holly
early in the morning: examined every stranger In tho village, but did not
find any body but was able to prove their innocence relative to the
robbvry. Tlie sheriff also went to Luk and overhauled a. stranger wl o
I tad been in Uie town only the day before, but found nothing on hisperson
to indicate tliat the fellow hvl been implicated in the burglary.
Monday morning a party, who came in from the valley north of town
reported hivinif seen, or rather heard of a stranger, acting strangely
jtod from the discription givon of him tallied exactly with a stranger who
iiad been in Harrison the day previous to the robbery, immediately on hear
ing this clue, Slierff Holly and Will Marsteller, went down in search of the
stranger and tracked him from Henry Linduiuan.s place on to Anlmore aud
Jilireoiont, 8. LHtk., but were unable to hear tuiylhinj; further of hlm.at
either of th lust named filar, and tb ire gave up the chase. Tl e boys

That respected authority the commercial Year Book, published by the"
Joiirnul of Commerce and Commercial bulletin, contains a list of Amen
can trusts and combinations. It is ru t complete, of course, for uo statisti
cian can keep track of all the operations of the trutit promoters, but it is
accurate ns far as it goes.
When tho body of the book went tl press.'in the middle of March, there
were JJ.'iB of thee combinations in existence. Their common K.tock amoun
ted to 12-17,i)l!i.MS, their preferred .stock tof.STO.077.200, their bonds to
t7U.3ftM,661 and their total capitaliz.uion to $5,. 833.,779.
In the ten weeks lietwcen tho time when that lr-t was closed and the
27lh of May so many new trusts wer formed that it was thought advis
able to insert a supplemental sheeet to accomodate them. There were sixty-three
of them making 410 in all. Thev issued $0fi2.70.O0O of common
irtock, 100.30,000, of preferr'! a tor, and S.V.VJ, 73,000 of bonds. Their
total capitalization was $l,!iKl,'.iri,()'!Q, which brought the agsrPL'ate capi
tahzation of all tho trusts in tho country on May 27 up to $7,416,235,779
'And more of tlieni are hatchintf eery day.
)o you reulijvj what $7,!0.000,000 means?
It is enough to run the govei ntuent of the t" S. for fifteen years. Tiie

It is 100 for every man, woman and child in the country 500 for everv
it is over seven times the bonded debt of the United States, and more
than anyothor national debt in the world.
But this enormous capitalization does not tell the whole story. The
Sugar trust pays rettularly 12 per cent on its common stock. The last
dividend of the Telephone company was 15 per cent. The Standard Oil
paid 30 per cent. New York Journal, i
