Tlic littli' neighborhood of Andrews,
ten miles east of Harrison, Neb,, was
thi! scene f a tragedy when .lames
Forc,e shot and killed his neighbor,
Harvey ltussell. You tip Force, accom
panied by his father, went Immediate
ly to Harrison and gue himself up to
the sheriff, elaimlngself-dcfenso as the
cause of the shooting, to which there
wuh no witness. Then- was no wea
pon on Kusell's body when found later
by the coroner's jury.
For several months past there has
been bad blood between thes young
men, both of whom are about nineteen
jears old, and their families, growing
out of a controversy over a line of fence
separating their cattle ranges and built
by the Forces. Force claims that nt
a previous meeting Harvey and his
father, II. H. ltussell, threatened to
Sunday the young men met on the
prairie with the result that ltussell
was killed. The only thing that Force
has to say Is that he did not know
ltussell was unarmed and feared that
the latter would attempt to carry out
his previous threat. What appears
very damaging to Force is that he shot
Ills victim three times, the last time
through the head, after ltussell had
fallen to the ground.
Young ltussell Is a brother of Chnrles
Russell, who is now serving a life sen
tence at Lincoln for the murder of
M. S. Taudemler about a year ago, and
members of the family are all feared
by their neighbors. Young Force has
also made some bad breaks before,
having drawn his gun on two different
men. Forced waived examination and
was held without ball.
MAY USE CONVICT LABOR
State Ilecclic No Ittda on Penitentiary
Not a single bid was received by the
lward of public lands and buildings in
response to a request for contractors
to come forward nud tell how much
they wanted for constructing a new
administration building at the peni
tentiary. This rather bingular termi
nation is puzzling the board. Someone
suggested that the contractors were
too busy with other work to attempt
new jobs. A contractor who had fig
ured on the work said he knew no
contractor could do the work for the
appropriation of 875,000 which is avail
able, and for this reason no bids were
presented. The members of tho board
are considering the advisability of ask
ing for bids of material only. If this
is done convict labor will be used to
construct tho building. Governor
Dietrich recommended an appropria
tion exceeding 5100,000, but the legis

The Industrial commission has decid

means of circular letters into the
charge that exporters of American
made goods often sell them for lower
prices than arc asked for similar goods
at home, and a resolution has been
adopted requesting from the business
interests of the United States "a full
and frank statement covering the ef
forts made to extend consumption of
products to foreign markets." The
secretary of the commission was in
structed to prepare a letter to manu
facturers indicating tho Information
desired and asking, among other ques
tions, whether they sell their goods at
a lower price abroad than at home,and
if so, requesting them to give reasons
for this course. The letter also will
ask for suggestions for securing better
prices abroad for American goods.

S. Alf Downey, an old and respected
citizen of tho community, became, sud
denly and passionately enraged over a
personal matter,' at the bottom of
which, it is alleged, were some stories
menacing the reputation of his daugh
ter. He believed Walt Hlllis to be the
cause of the unfortunate gossip and,
arming himself with a IC'-caliber revol
ver, started in search of Hlllis. Ho
found him in front of Smith's barber
shop, and, walking within a few paces
of him, drew his revolver and legan
shooting. Hlllis sprang toward Dow
ney, and, after a momentary effort to
disarm him, during which another
shot was fired, he started on a run for
a neighboring pool hall, and there
found refuge. Five shots wcro tired,
one striking Hlllis in the hip and two
in the right arm, one of which carao
out at the elbow. A physician quick
ly removed the others and dressed tho
wounds, and Hlllis does not seem to bo
very seriously wounded at this time.
Mr. Downey was put under arrest and
quickly gave bond. Hillis Is able to
be about, and it is feared there may
be another collision between the men.

WILL ABOLISH CHILDLABOR
Agreement Keaehed by Spinner In Geor
gia Cotton Mill.
Child labor In the cotton mills of
Georgia has been doomed to abolition
by the spinners of that state, who have
been in session at Warm Spring for
a week. Having secured eighty-eight
signatures to the agreement, now they
declare that no child less than IS years
old shall work at night In any cotton
or woolen mill under any circumstances
and that no child less than Vi years old
shall be allowed to work therein at all,
unless such child has a widowed moth
er or physically disabled purent de
pendent for support upon its labor.
No child under 10 years of age shall be
permitted to work in any such mill ol
factory under any circumstances.
In addition the state legislature is
called on to provide long term schools
for the children thus thrown out of
work. This step is taken to head off
the work of lalsir agitators. The pur
pose of the millers Is to do away with
child labor altogether.

The past week has been cool with
heavy showers. The dally mean tem
perature has inenigcil two degree
above normal In the southeastern coun
ties and two degrees below normal in
the northern and western.
The rainfall was much above normal
In all except a few eastern counties.
In a large portion of the central and
western counties the rainfall ranged
from two to live Inches.
The heavy showers of the past week
were sufficiently general to cause a de
cided Improvement in crop conditions,
although in some small areas the rain
full was Insitllleli'iit for crop needs.
Winter wheat has 'loiitlnued to Im
prove, and in most pluccn Is filling
well; In the southeastern counties It Is
beginning to ripen. Oats have grown
well, but are heading very short. Corn
has grown slowly, but rather better
than the preceding weeks this year;
the stand Is good, and the crop Is quite
free from weeds. The heavy rain in
the northern and western counties .has
placed the ranges In exceptionally fine
condition aud makes probable a large
hay crop In those counties. The first
crop of alfalfa Is nearly all In the stack
in southern counties, a good crop, se
cured in prime condition. In the cen

alfalfa was damaged by rain,
Cherries are a large crop; apples

KEARNEY MILL TO CLOSE
Owner of Cotton Pitctory lire Compelled
to Cenko Operation.
Ithns been decided by the owner
to close the Kearney, Neb., cotton
mill, For some time past, particularly
since the closing of the Asiatic market
occasioned by the Chinese war, the
mill has been operated at a loss. The
Kearney mill was a direct shipper of
special grades of cotton goods to China.
The building of nearly '.'00 mills dur
ing the last year, more than three
fourths of them lu the south, has over
stocked the sheeting market aud It Is
understood there Is now more than a
year's supply of manufactured goods In
storage In this country. The high
price of cotton has made It Impossible
to manufacture without a loss. East
ern Investors hold mortgage bonds for
800,000 borrowed to use as working
capital. The mortgage Is In process
of foreclosure and a decree Is expected
within thirty days.
The mill will then be sold. It Is not
improbable that the present owners
will buy the property aud reorganize,
but at this time it is not possible to
say whether the mill will lie operated
again or not. Considering the hard
competition and the. condition of the
cotton goods trade the outlook is not
encouraging. There have been various
rumors regarding the purchase of tho
property by other Interests nnd tho use
of the water power and building for
other purposes, but these cannot be
traced to a reliable source.
