Andrew Carnegie told a story on him
self the other day. lie said, some years
ago he wanted to cross a mountain In
Pennsylvania, and a youngster of
ruther hardy appearance offered tj
take him over for "jO cents. Carnegie
thought the price too great, and tjld
the boy lie would pay him only 2."j Ct'ittri.
AftiT a long urgumeiit, In which each
stuck to his price, the youngster won
out, and Mr. Carnegie says he allowed
the lad to colh-ct the 5 cents, not be
cause the trip whs worth It, but because
he hud to get on the other side of the
in iiinlain. "I predicted thut tbe boy
would some day make a fortuue," an d
Mr. Carnegie, "and he bus. Ills name
Is Charles M. Schwab." The foregoing
is a yarn from the New York Sun, pub
lished to show the early characteristics
of men who atlain to million-dollar sal
aries. It shows something else, too a
principle. It was appropriate that Car
negie and .Schwab should be the char
acters of the story, for they both repre
sent what Is called success enormous
wealth achieved on the line of that
principle or personal policy. It Is this
principle, or policy, that curses the na
tion, and humanity at large. It la the
great producer of paupers and thieves.
It has Clli-d prisons, lunatic asylums,
poorbouses and graves without numln.-r.
And to hold this story of Schwab's buc
cess up for the emulation of youth is
to encourage robbery, selfishness, inhu
manity and generul meanness. It is a
policy through following which men's
souls Income weazened, their lives a
mere apology for existence, their leav
ing this world a common blessing to
their fiJIovv creatures. Get jour fel
low mail In a corner and then skin him
for all he's worth. This Is the principle.
The young man who starts with thid
aim, perseveres und has the opportuni
ties, will some day be able to till as
mauy poorbouses and libraries as can
Carnegie and Schwab. These two had
the opportunities and were remarka
bly adept at tbe skinning. Carnegie
had to go over that mountain. Young
Schwab had him at a disadvantage
and skinned him. Carnegie at once
foretold a brIUlant future for the boy
who would charge 00 per cent bold-np
for what the other follow had to have.
What a travesty on Christianity and
civillzaliou to hold up as models of suc
cess men who make such principles their
life principles. Better go through life
glviug full value received and wind up
a moderate success, than to step oil
Into eternity with an unbroken rec

Killed By a Woman.
Buffalo, N. Y., March 21. -Superintendent
of Police Hull said today
that his opinion as to who killed Ed
win L. Durdick had not been chang
ed at any time since the murder.
"I believe a woman killed Purdick"
he declared, "and I suspect the same
woman now that I did the day of
the murder. I believe Mr. Cusack
and the district attorney are of quite
the same opinion."
The foregoing statement was made
by the superintendent In an Inter
view denying a published reportutcb
quoted hkn as saying:
"It looks more like Pennell's job
than at any time since the murder."
Former District Attorney Thomas
Penney said loday:
"Not a dollar of Mr. Pennell's life
insurance will go to Mrs. Iiurdick."
Mr, Penney made this statement
in view of the publication of a re
port that only $25,000 of tlie enor
mous insurance carried by Mr. Pen
;nell was made payable to his estate.
The circumstances have given rlue to
surmises that Mrs. Hurdick might be
,'the chief bcnellciary.
', The general manager of a New
York insurance company, confirmed
the statement of Mr. Penncll. "Mr.
Penneli has $30 000 life insurance in
our company," he .said, "and this is

all I have heard I believe that the

to be payable to his estate or to his

about to make the room noticed a

maid went to the room and noticed
that the man was in exactly the

proved that he was flead.

Papeete, March 4 (via Sao Fran
cisco) March 18. The latest intelli
gence relative to tbe hurricane in
Tuamotu. or Lower Archipelago, In
dicates that the fatalities will num
ber 800. The loss of property will be
one-half million dollars. Itelief meas
ures have been instituted.
The hurricane and high water last
ed during January 14, 15 and 16. At
Uikuera, 377 deaths occurred, in
most Instances among visitors from
Other islands who were there during
the diving season. One hundred and
forty-two deaths are reported from
six other small islands.
On the awful night of January 15,
when in the darkness and a driving
tlwnrxiir of rain that stung their
faces andTiaked bodies, the parents
tied their little children to their
backs and sought safety. Over their
beads rolled the mighty wave, and
ivben the surges retreated tbe infants
md half drowned boys and girls
luccumbed. The father and mother
would vainly endeavor to retain the
:orpses of their dead, and at length
bad to abandon them. They tied
heniselves to cocoanut trees, and
tome at last fell with them. Others
tscaped, clinging to trees temporarily
ind at other times able to catch hold
)f something else, and so between
the breakers reached safety after
many hours of hardship.
Messrs. Chedleld and Allen, elders
)f the Mormon church, and Mr. and
Mrs. Gilbert, of the Latter Day
Saints' mission, in a report to the
United States consul give grewsotno
ietalls of the disaster. The Gilberts
ost. one shelter when a cocoanut tree

itump uf a booran tree.
The water, which had all but sub-
tierged them completely, now only
eached their feet. The wind threat-
inedto tear them from their position
tgain and again, and so these Amer-
ans passed that awful night. In the

After a long search Mr. Gilbert's

FOR THE FARMERS
Elevstor Site BUI Will Pass Both Houses-1
House Approves s Measurs
Lincoln, Neb., March 18 .The
legislature Tuesday did some impor
tant wotk, showing that It intends
to pass a bill to require railroads to
give the privileges desired by farmers'
elevator companies. It forestalled
the senate which was to act on a bill
of the same nature introduced by a
populist member, Senator Brady of
Boone, and took up tbe bill intro
duced by Representative Ramsey.
Early in the session it was apparent
that a bill of this character would
bs passed. The elevator combine
has kept men constantly on the scene,;
but those wbo sought to bead off thei
bill ran up against a stono wall. Pe
titions and requests came to the
members every day for such legisla
tion. No member was able to go to
his home without hearing of the de
sire of the people. The railroads long
ago decided to keep their hands off.
In fact they have troubles of their
own of a more serious nature. It is
believed that the railroads would be
glad to escape from the continual at
tempted dictation of the elevator
trust and this bill will make escape
The house by almost unanimous
vote agreed to the Ramsey elevator
bill, II. R. No. 70, in committee of
the whole. The original bill was
substituted for the committee amend
ment and the provision was added
that elevators to be built undei
the act must represent an investmert
The two important sections of the
i bill as agreed upon and as it will pass
tbe house, are as follows:
"Sections 1 of article 5, chapter 72,
of the compiled statutes of Nebraska,
is amended as follows:
Sec. 1. Every railroad corpora
tion shall give to all persons and as
sociations reasonable and equal
terms for transportation of any mer
chandise or other property of everj
kind and description, upon any rail
road owned or operated by such corpo
ration within this state and for ter
minal handling, the use of the depot
and other buildings and grounds of
such corporation, and at any point
where its railroad shall connect with
any other railroad, reasonable and
eiual terms and facilities of inter
change and shall promptly forward
merchandise consigned or directed to
be sent over another road connecting
with lis road according to the direc

same; and every railroad company or

the state of Nebraska shall afford
equal facilities to all persons or asso

The standing committee amend

turned down, is as follows;
